TREESI want to recommend that you make friends with a tree. Any tree. Pick one in your local park or glen or up on a mountain. Get up close and friendly with it. Or admire the very welcome trees now being planted along our urban roads and streets. Make friends with one of them. And you don't have to be monogamous. You can love lots of trees. In lots of places.They come in all shapes and sizes. All produce seeds. Some have berries, bright and attractive.  Most of them are older than us. In the Irish tradition some trees are sacred. They ward of evil spirits. Or bring good luck. They provide shelter. Some are ancient. They have wisdom. They are holy.THERE IS NOTHING GREATER THAN FREEDOMMartin Luther King's birthday is on 15 January. Each year since 1986 the USA has celebrated the life and legacy of King with a national public holiday.In 2001 I had the good fortune to visit Atlanta in Georgia where Martin Luther King was born and where he spent much of his life preaching. Atlanta was at the heart of the Civil Rights struggle and I had the opportunity to sit quietly in Ebenezer Baptist Church where he preached his first sermon at the age of 17.The Democratic Programme of the First Dáil21 January 1919 was a day of firsts. It was the day the first shots were fired in the Tan War at Soloheadbeg. It was the first day those TDs elected in the December 1918 election met in the Mansion House as the first Dáil Éireann. And it was also the first ever democratically elected Parliament in Ireland. Lá stairiúil a bhí ann.The First Dáil was the moment the Irish people democratically asserted our desire for sovereignty from the British Empire. Just over a century later of the three texts presented to the Dáil that day the Democratic Programme is as relevant today as it was then.

Author of several books on the topic of the British Royal Family, Shaun Attwood stops by to explain the dark history of the House of Windsor that has been ruling over many countries trapped inside the British Empire for over a century. With an appetite for pedophilia and power, the so-called “elite” run this world in an inverted manner that prioritizes all of the wrong things while claiming to be doing the opposite. Through his five-book series called “War On Drugs”, Shaun explains how this fake war has led to actual pain and suffering all over the world, but especially in America where Shaun documented the horror of the prison system with his own eyes for over six years.

MBE at the BBC: How Saxophonist Jess Gillam Is Breaking Boundaries for Her Instrument by Leading With Kindness

When British saxophonist Jess Gillam refers to her Carnegie Hall debut as "a real dream come true," she's being literal. Since the age of 12, she's dreamt of taking to New York City's fabled stage and sharing her passion for the saxophone with the audience. Gillam's dream became reality in October, when she and pianist Thomas Weaver performed a wide-ranging program of music — from Telemann and John Dowland to Meredith Monk and Barbara Thompson — at Carnegie's Weill Recital Hall. For Gillam, it was important that her program not only reflected the capabilities of her instrument, but also allowed her to forge meaningful connections with the audience. "It's important for me to play music that I really resonate with, music that really speaks to me so that I can tell the story well and share that story with the audience," Gillam says on the latest episode of the Classical Post podcast. "That was my main aim last night — to create an atmosphere and a place for the audience to exist." That insatiable drive to share her excitement about classical music has led to a bevy of remarkable opportunities and honors. At just 24 years old, Gillam remains the youngest presenter to host a BBC Radio 3 program — the wildly popular This Classical Life — and in 2018 she was a soloist at the Last Night of the Proms, perhaps the biggest and most prestigious event in British classical music. She was named a Member of the Order of the British Empire for her service to British music and was the first saxophonist to be signed to Decca Classics. And her debut album, Rise, hit the top spot on the UK Classical chart in 2019. In this episode, Gillam and I talk more about her Carnegie debut and the projects she has lined up for 2023 — including the premiere of a new concerto written for her by Anna Clyne, which she'll perform with the Detroit Symphony. Plus, she shares how film, fashion, and nature fuel her creativity, her fanatical love of Nairn's oatcakes, and why there's nothing more important to her than "being as kind as possible." — Classical Post® is a leading podcast based in New York. Our content uncovers the creativity behind exceptional music through dynamic deep-dive interviews with prominent artists in the world today.

Co-Host of the WTAF! Podcast, Rich Willett, breaks down the secret history of the ownership of the United States that connects to the British Empire through covert means. Is the Virginia Company the actual owner of the United States, and if so, what does that mean for the sovereignty of America? In current times, the Royal Family has their hands full with the interloper from the Virginia Company, Megan Markel, and her half-blood prince, as they verbally firebomb the House of Windsor with claims of deep-seated racism. Will Piers Morgan murder these two with his own hands or is it all another one of his performance pieces? Luckily, Rich Willett is here to break it all down in the way that only he can.

Barbadians were among the thousands of British West Indians who migrated to Cuba in the early twentieth century in search of work. They were drawn there by employment opportunities fueled largely by US investment in Cuban sugar plantations. Tell My Mother I Gone to Cuba: Stories of Early Twentieth-century Migration from Barbados (U West Indies Press, 2016) is their story. The migrants were citizens of the British Empire, and their ill-treatment in Cuba led to a diplomatic tiff between British and Cuban authorities. The author draws from contemporary newspaper articles, official records, journals and books to set the historical contexts which initiated this intra-Caribbean migratory wave. Through oral histories, it also gives voice to the migrants' compelling narratives of their experience in Cuba. One of the oral histories recorded in the book is that of the author's mother, who was born in Cuba of Barbadian parents.

Arguably, the outcome of World War II became inevitable on the day the S.S. Star of Oregon slid into the Columbia River. It was followed by a torrent of new ships — far more than the Nazis could ever hope to sink.

Avoid the V@X Plague (Audio) David Eells - 1/8/23   God Showed Us His Cure for Every Disease David Eells - 1/8/23   God has totally borne our curse according to Galatians 3:13-14, Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us; for it is written, Cursed is everyone that hangeth on a tree: 14 that upon the Gentiles might come the blessing of Abraham in Christ Jesus; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.   This curse is delineated in Deu. 28 as all sickness and plagues. God has taken the curse of sin and of death and  put it upon His Son for those who believe. He has blessed us because of our Passover Lamb. When we eat the words of the Passover in Exo. 12, we find that the destroyer angel passes over us but still destroys the wicked.   This is proven in God's Word in Exo. 15:26 …If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of Jehovah thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his eyes, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases upon thee, which I have put upon the Egyptians: for I am Jehovah that healeth thee.   And Psa. 103:2-4 Bless Jehovah, O my soul, And forget not all his benefits: 3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; Who healeth all thy diseases; 4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; Who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies.   And 1Pe. 2:24 who his own self bare our sins in his body upon the tree, that we, having died unto sins, might live unto righteousness; by whose stripes ye were healed. (You will notice that you do not have to talk God into this. He says it has already been done. The only thing left is to repent and believe. Heb. 4:2 For indeed we have had good tidings preached unto us, even as also they: but the word of hearing did not profit them, because it was not united by faith with them that heard.)   And if this is not enough, Jesus said in Mar. 11:24-26 Therefore I say unto you, All things whatsoever ye pray and ask for, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. (You will notice that Jesus also told us that we are to believe it's already done.)     25 And whensoever ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have aught against anyone; that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. 26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your trespasses. (You will notice that unforgiveness is one of the reasons people don't get delivered from the curse. In fact it will deliver them over to the demons who administer the curse. Mat. 18:34-35 And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due. 35 So shall also my heavenly Father do unto you, if ye forgive not everyone his brother from your hearts. Unforgiveness comes in many forms. Bitterness, criticism, anger, hurt feelings and offense, faction, slander, railing, etc.)   So, as long as we have forgiven everybody from the heart, He sets us free and provides us everything necessary to protect us or heal us in this world through His promises. He is raising up children to walk as sons of God in these days to demonstrate the provision of His great salvation. Here is a book that goes into this subject in much more detail:   Learn from God's Vaccine Book 7 simple steps to be immune fromplagues/pestilences Considering that God showed us the free cure for every disease in these pages if we believe Him; could He be angry enough to show us that trusting in men is very destructive. Let's see why God is angry. (Hos.9:11) [The vax is another false flag 911.] As for Ephraim [God called them the "fullness of the nations” and millions of them are being robbed of their children.], their glory shall fly away like a bird: there shall be no birth, and none with child, and no conception.(12) Though they bring up their children [and get them vaxed], yet will I bereave them, so that not a man shall be left: [depopulation agenda of the D/S is to bring down the population of the world to 500,000,000] yea, woe also to them when I depart from them!(13) Ephraim, like as I have seen Tyre (An island type of the U.S. “in the midst of the sea”), is planted in a pleasant place: but Ephraim shall bring out his children to the slayer.(14) Give them, O Jehovah-what wilt thou give? give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts.[Miscarriages are up 4070% and there is still a baby formula shortage here in the U.S.. This does not include the babies born with every kind of sickness because their immune system is destroyed. And the babies can pass on the plague of the vax as well as the grownups. The death rate is climbing geometrically.](15) All their wickedness is in Gilgal; for there I hated them: because of the wickedness of their doings I will drive them out of my house; I will love them no more; all their princes are revolters. (Foolish “Christian leaders” do not believe or teach what God says about God'sVaccine, so they are guilty of much blood.)  (16) Ephraim is smitten, their root is dried up, they shall bear no fruit: yea, though they bring forth, yet will I slay the beloved fruit of their womb. (Man can't escape the curse. It is there to send men to God for His salvation. Man's methods only shift the curse from one area of our lives to another. Jer. 17:5-9 Thus saith Jehovah: Cursed is the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from Jehovah. (Now multitudes who have taken the vaccine have discovered this to be true.) 6 For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh, but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, a salt land and not inhabited. 7 Blessed is the man that trusteth in Jehovah, and whose trust Jehovah is. 8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, that spreadeth out its roots by the river, and shall not fear when heat cometh, but its leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. 9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and it is exceedingly corrupt: who can know it?) Would any sane person trust a Rockefeller/Gates Depopulationist to make a vaccine for Covid 19 when no one, not even the CDC has ever isolated Covid 19. They have never had a sample of it and admit it.  And here is a clue: as the statistics for C-19 go up the statistics for the flu go down so now they're calling the Flu Covid 19. When mixed with 5G, as happened in Wuhan, it killed them. Same in Europe. They had just put in 5G in both places and turned it up when the slaughter began.    Pictures of damage to lungs from 5G and so-called C-19 are identical. C-19 is not the problem, the vax is. Rockefeller dictated that Remdesivir, and respirators was the cure, but the tests proved it deadly. While the CDC scared everyone away from the successful treatments such as Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine and others that cost almost nothing, big Pharma made a huge amount of money with their poisons. Follow the money!   God has the answer, and we are having success praying over people who believe in God's Words.     Pfizer's COVID Vaccine Causes Miscarriages, Stillbirths 1/21/22 - by: Mary Villareal (Natural News) After initially being denied, the Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency finally gained access to documents containing Pfizer's data on their COVID-19 vaccine, revealing that the big pharma company received over 150,000 reports of serious adverse events, including miscarriages and stillbirths, within three months of vaccine rollout. What is especially concerning about the data found are the number of pregnant and lactating women who received the shots in the first few months of the rollout. The data states that of 270 “unique pregnancies” exposed to the vaccine, “no outcome was provided for 238 pregnancies,” leaving only 32 with known outcomes. Out of these, 32 known outcomes, 23 resulted in spontaneous abortions (miscarriages), two premature births with neonatal deaths, two spontaneous abortions with intrauterine death, one spontaneous abortion with neonatal death and one pregnancy with “normal outcome.”(Likely, this person became a believer or received the placebo.) This means that of 32 pregnancies with known outcomes, 28 resulted in fetal death. If results are to be based only on the known outcomes of the vaccines in pregnant and lactating women, there is an 87.5 percent pregnancy loss rate. Public health agencies remain adamant that pregnant women and their children are more likely to die of the virus than from the vaccine, but there is little evidence that proves such claims, as the study they usually refer to comes from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) itself. A comparison of stillbirth rates in 1,249,634 deliveries at 736 hospitals from March 2020 to September 2021 among women with and without COVID infections established that there was indeed a surge in stillbirths, but not during the height of the first deadly wave of the virus: only during the period when the delta variant was dominant, or after pregnant women were pressured into getting vaccinated. (Related: UK now pushing pregnant women to take covid vaccines despite miscarriage, infertility risks.) Despite the numbers (only 0.98 percent of COVID-19 affected deliveries pre-delta compared to 2.70 percent after vaccines were introduced) the CDC still won't consider that the experimental injections could be the reason for the increasing stillbirth rates. Because the COVID-19 vaccines are said to be highly effective and vaccination among pregnant women was approximately 30 percent as of July 2021, most women with COVID-19 at delivery were likely to be unvaccinated, according to the CDC. This information does not sound very scientific because science isn't usually an assumption based on a slogan added to the guesstimates. Another study that experts heavily relied on was a study that was later corrected when analysts recognized the error in their data collections, adding the possibility of an 82 percent miscarriage rate in early pregnancy despite concluding that COVID shots were safe and effective. Too much unknown information to definitively say vaccines are “for the good of all” The Pfizer vaccine has already been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and these COVID vaccines have already caused 1.8 million adverse events that included deaths, miscarriages, bells palsy, heart attacks and various permanent disabilities, to name a few. While research continues regarding how natural immunity from COVID is more robust than vaccines, 79 percent of fully vaccinated individuals had been infected with any one of the variants of the virus. This means that injecting bodies with foreign substances that have been rushed through development causes harm or even death, negating any “duty to seek to preserve our bodies.” If previous studies are any indication, it shows that vaccines are anything but safe and effective. In mid-2021, Dr. Simone Gold, founder of America's Frontline Doctors previously explained that there is a known potential mid-pregnancy fertility risk with the use of the vaccine. She acknowledged that while getting COVID-19 has been associated with a high risk of mid-pregnancy miscarriage because “the placenta fails,” She noted that the vaccine may do the exact same thing. “It's lunacy to get this experimental vaccine if you're a young female,” she said. “It's that simple … I would flat out forbid any young female from getting this vaccine, and I think it's very unethical for any physician to offer this to a young female,” she said.  Vaccine Shedding is NOT a Conspiracy Theory 12/08/2022 - By Kevin Hughes Ohio-based lawyer Tom Renz discussed a variety of topics during a recent episode of “Another Renz Rant.” Renz shared that renowned cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough has been talking about the possibility of vaccine shedding – meaning, the unvaccinated can also be infected with diseases caused by the vaccines. Renz said this appears terrifying, but it is not a conspiracy theory. The lead counsel in three major cases concerning the COVID lockdowns, mask mandates and false death/case data told his viewers that McCullough doesn't say anything he can't back up with evidence. Renz, a patriot and freedom fighter, said he has been talking about vaccine shedding since early 2021 shortly after the jabs came out. He cited that there was a document about “reportable safety events” in studies at Pfizer. “If a pregnant woman came in contact with someone who was vaccinated… (that is considered a) reportable safety event. Why is that? Why were they tracking that? Well, they didn't answer. No contact and they were specific contacts, didn't necessarily mean anything more than just being around it. I mean literally shedding [when] you get near someone who was recently vaccinated. They were concerned – why?” Renz asked. (Related: Truth confirmed: Research proves two more “conspiracy theories” related to vaccine shedding, pregnant women to be true all along.) Renz also mentioned that when Comirnaty was fraudulently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Pfizer did a bunch of post-authorization studies on it. These post-authorization studies include vaccine shedding, as well as viral and bacterial gene therapy products. The Ohio-based lawyer asked why Pfizer is concerned about shedding if it is not possible and why it is calling the vaccine a gene therapy product if it is not. He pointed out that Pfizer and the FDA are lying, and the American people are trusting liars. “Everything about the jabs has been a lie,” he said. DON'T SHED ON ME!  The Covid “Vaccinated” are a Health Threat to the Unvaccinated, Warns Dr. Peter McCullough 12/07/2022 - By Ethan Huff Is it possible as an unvaccinated person to become contaminated with covid chemicals through exposure to others who have been jabbed? The answer is yes, according to Dr. Peter McCullough. In a recent interview with Action Canada's Tanya Gaw, McCullough discussed the risks that covid “vaccinated” people pose to the “unvaccinated.” In a nutshell, he likened the situation to non-smokers inhaling the second-hand smoke of smokers. Citing a paper recently published in the TMR journal Infectious Diseases Research, McCullough shared details about how messenger RNA (mRNA) can transfer from the fully jabbed to the unjabbed since these chemicals persist in the blood for at least two weeks – and likely much longer – post-injection. Another study recently published found that mRNA remains in the lymph nodes of the fully jabbed for months, which further backs McCullough's claims. There is also another recent medical study that McCullough called the “most disturbing” that shows mRNA poisons can transfer from breast milk to babies. “It seems the body can't clear it,” McCullough stated soberly. (Related: McCullough faces losing his medical license for breaking the script on covid.) Do mRNA Poisons Stay in the Body Permanently? McCullough Thinks So... If an unvaccinated person gets close to a vaccinated person, either through sexual activity or even just kissing, the so-called “vaccine” can transfer through this route as well. It is currently unknown how long an unvaccinated person should wait before engaging in this type of contact with a vaccinated person. In McCullough's estimation, these poisons could remain for years, or maybe even permanently, making the fully jabbed an indefinite public health risk. “This is very disturbing,” McCullough stated. Early on in the “pandemic,” McCullough advised that the unvaccinated should wait at least a month before having close contact with someone who got jabbed for the Fauci Flu. Now he has bumped that to 90 days or more. After each shot, mRNA accumulates even more “with no ability for the body to get rid of it,” McCullough maintains. “It looks like they permanently install into the human genome through what we call reverse transcription,” he explained. In other words, mRNA poisons reprogram human genes and turn a person, it seems, into a non-human automaton with strange, foreign DNA. At best, mRNA turns the fully vaccinated into fully transhuman beings that look human but that have non-human genetic blueprints. Autopsies of deceased fully jabbed bodies show the presence of this altered genetic material throughout the vital organs. This, McCullough says, is proof all on its own. “So I can tell you everyone who's taken the vaccine has this material in their brain, their heart, adrenal glands, reproductive organs,” McCullough said. “It's really a terrible thought. My heart goes out to anyone taking the vaccine, yeah.” You can watch the interview between Gaw and McCullough at the RAIR Foundation website. “If a war is to be fought, it's with this NWO (New World Order) fascist system,” wrote a commenter in response to McCullough's claims and revelations. “They are already at war with us.” “This is just the start of ‘the beginning of sorrows' Jesus prophesied in Matthew 24:8,” wrote another, pointing to the Holy Scriptures for guidance about what comes next. “Much more is on the way in the form of continued pestilence[s], war[s], famine[s] and natural disaster[s]. What makes these different than in past sorrows is the intensity and frequency. Then to stop this mass death there will be enforced false worship worldwide (Matt.24:9-11, Rev.13:11-18). The last counsel and warning is found in Rev.14:6-12.”   COVID VACCINE SHEDDING: UNDERSTANDING WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE UNSEEN REALM. (Video)   Fix the World Project - 5/6/21   In this presentation we review the most recent phenomenon of non vaccinated people who are experiencing extreme health effects after being in close proximity with a vaccinated person for a short period of time. Specifically, hundreds of thousands of reports have been given and then censored by MSM of women's menstrual cycles being severely affected including miscarriages when a non vaccinated person are around someone who has had a Covid Injection. People are waking up to this new bioweapon unleashed on the public and we have reports of doctors, stores and schools telling vaccinated people to stay away.   Watch the presentation on Bitchute at this link here: https://www.bitchute.com/video/5JqnXOmdSxY9/    We believe the key to understanding what is happening lies in the unseen realm. In this presentation we do a deep dive into areas of science that are overlooked in order to explain in plain terms what is happening in the unseen realm when it comes to COVID Vaccine shedding.(Video)   Big Pharma's Rape of All Mankind:  Exposing the Dangers of the Masks and PCR Tests Banned.Video Link - 4/27/21 (Transcribed by Eve Brast) “People are finding strange fibers inside their masks and in the covid 19(PCR) test swabs. Many people are pointing out the similarities between these fibers and Morgellons disease, (which is)a mysterious, unexplained skin condition characterized by small fibers emerging from skin sores. But the fibers we are seeing in the masks and test swabs seem to be different.  Many have suggested that they are normal constructive fibers, but upon close examination, they do exhibit strange qualities. In the video, (we see that)when exposed to wind, this fiber behaves exactly as one would expect,but when breathed upon it acts differently. It appears to come to life.  The fibers appear to behave similar to how “theragrippers” are described. Similar to parasitic worms, theragrippers were created at Johns Hopkins University. Theragrippers are as small as a grain of dust and are designed to deliver medication into the host's body. They operate like small compressed springs with a temperature triggered coating that releases the stored energy autonomously at body temperature (i.e. compressed springs with temperature controlled coating). These fibers can easily be described as spring-like and while (people are)wearing a mask(they) can easily spring towards their mouths as the people breathe, as if the masks (and PCR tests) are a delivery system loaded with drugs ready to be delivered into the host's bloodstream. Under magnification the PCR test swabs appear to have glasslike fibers. In one experiment the PCR test swab was rubbed against a piece of raw meat to emulate the tissue inside our nasal cavity. These microfibers deeply penetrated themselves into the flesh. Is this happening inside of our nasal cavity when we are being swabbed with the PCR tests?…  DARPA has been developing BCI's (Brain Computer Interfaces) since the 1960's and now they are ready to inject our military with a technology that will continuously test their blood. “It's not a dreaded government microchip to track your every move but, a tissue-like gel, engineered to continuously test your blood. The overwhelming desire of the “Powers That Be” seems to be putting something inside of us, putting an experimental vaccine inside of us; putting the remnants of an aborted child inside of us. How is that any different than rape? How is it that anyone is okay with this? (Narrated by Greg Reese with infowars.com.)   Are Vaccines Fueling New Covid Variants? 1/4/23 - by: Ethan Huff (Natural News) There is another new covid “variant” (or so we are told) that is spreading across the Northeast. And The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) admits that covid “vaccines” are making people more susceptible to it. XBB, as they are calling this latest variant, is not necessarily any deadlier than previous variants. It is also a lot different, we are told, than previous variants in that it evades “protection” from the injections. “Growing evidence also suggests that repeated vaccinations may make people more susceptible to XBB and could be fueling the virus's rapid evolution,” writes Allysia Finley, admitting what many of us have known for years now. XBB supposedly belongs to the Omicron (anagram for Moronic) family of variants, which comes with “numerous descendants,” according to Finley, “many of which have popped up in different regions of the world curiously bearing some of the same mutations.” A study published on December 19 explains that the rapid and simultaneous emergence of all these variants possessing “enormous growth advantages is unprecedented.” The reason, we now know, is the jabs. “Under selective evolutionary pressures, the virus appears to have developed mutations that enable it to transmit more easily and escape antibodies elicited by vaccines and prior infection,” Finley clarifies. (Related: Here is more proof showing that covid injections are spreading more variants). Pre-print Study Says Covid Bi-valent “Booster” Jab Responsible for Spreading New Variants Another study currently in pre-print contains similar revelations. This one looked at the so-called bi-valent “booster” jab for covid, which authorities are pushing on the masses as the solution to all the new variants. Workers at the Cleveland Clinic were used to assess the efficacy of bivalent boosters, which were found to provide “modest protection.” The key sentence in that study, though, is one specifying that “the virus strains dominant in the community were those represented in the vaccine.”   This would seem to suggest that the variants supposedly covered by bi-valent boosters at any given time just so happen to be the very same ones that continue to spread like wildfire, particularly among the “fully vaccinated.” In Finley's article, it is further admitted that covid “vaccines” provide poor and inadequate protection against new “strains” of the virus that come along. As opposed to natural immunity, which is generalized, but jab “immunity” is strain-specific (or so we are told), meaning when new strains come along there is no available protection against them. “Bi-valent vaccines that target the Wuhan and BA.5 variants (or breakthrough infections with the latter) prompt the immune system to produce antibodies that target viral regions the two strains have in common,” Finley writes. “XBB has evolved to elude antibodies induced by the vaccines and break through infections.” This “immune imprinting” caused by the injections, as they are calling it, was also addressed in a New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) study published last month. That one, along with another one published this month in Cell, both show that those who get injected are only protected against older strains of the virus because their immune systems were imprinted, aka damaged, to not generally recognize all mutations of viral invaders. “A bi-valent booster only slightly increased antibodies against XBB,” Finley writes. “Experts nevertheless claim that boosters improve protection against XBB. That's disinformation, to use their favored term.” “It might not be a coincidence that XBB surged this fall in Singapore, which has among the highest vaccination and booster rates in the world. Over the past several weeks a XBB strain has become predominant in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts, making up about three-quarters of virus samples that have been genetically sequenced.” The latest news about covid jabs can be found at Immunization.news.   HOSPITALS MOBBED with Every Room and Even HALLWAYS Occupied With Portable Cots … Has the Spike Protein Apocalypse Begun?   12/17/22 - by: S.D. Wells (Natural News) The hospitals in Virginia are full, with nearly every room occupied, including the emergency rooms, and even portable cots in the halls are becoming the norm for the overflow. As witnessed by investigative reporters and journalists, several hospitals in major cities of Virginia are full past capacity, so not only is every room occupied, but many portable cots, with patients on them, are lined up along the walls of the long halls and numbered. It's like a horror scene from a pandemic movie, and people are walking up and down the halls while patients are sleeping on cots with IV tubes in their arms, with people around them coughing and sneezing and carrying on about the bad conditions. It's most likely a fire hazard also, with hardly enough staff members to assist the overflow of patients if an emergency evacuation situation should arise. One can only guess at the reasons for the mobbing of hospitals right now, but complaints can be heard in the waiting rooms, and at the check-in desk in the emergency rooms. Patients are lined up for check-in, complaining of chest pains, high blood pressure, trouble breathing, and other symptoms that all seem to relate to spike protein syndrome – a critical illness caused by millions of prions that clog the vascular system and strain the heart and cleansing organs. Big Pharma raking in the bucks as patients sleep on cots in hallways of major hospitals as the scamdemic rages on Should you or a loved one spend the night in the hallway on a cot at an overcrowded hospital for any reason, the average cost of that overnight stay ranges from a whopping $9,300 on up to $13,600, depending on the type of coverage, or non-coverage, that you have. This is according to data collected from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, even though the quality of care when sleeping in the hallway at the emergency room leaves much to be desired. Imagine how much money the hospitals are making with every room full, and all the hallways crowded with cots against the wall, spread out about every 10 feet with a sick person, even overnight. Police are having to battle ‘crazy' people in fits of rage. In the middle of the night, police are having to escort crazed patients from the premises during “emergency lockdowns” in the emergency areas of hospitals. Patients can't even rest properly in the halls, with all the critical care machines beeping, opening of supply closets, nurses talking at full volume, and no emergency call buttons for the patients in the hallways to call for help. How can anyone get well or recover from surgery in conditions like this? Someone could go to the emergency room because the spike proteins are causing tiny clogs in their vascular system, driving their heart to beat at irregular rhythms. They spend a night or two on a cot in the hallway, it costs them $25,000, and the doctors can't figure out what's wrong, after running very expensive CAT scans and other diagnostic tests. Then, after being exposed to lots of sick patients roaming the hallways with Fauci Flu and other RSVs, plus the risk of getting a superbug infection (think MRSA here) from the IVs and the dirty, crowded conditions, the visit to the hospital might serve as a ‘shovel' for digging your own grave. A ‘spike' (pardon the pun) in illnesses has led to a shortage of hospital beds across Virginia, including for pediatric hospitalizations. For example, the Children's Hospital of Richmond says they are operating at greater than 95 percent capacity. Could it have to do with compromised immune systems due to the Wuhan Flu injections and “boosters?” Since the deadly Covid jabs have been administered to teens and kids, there has been a 40 percent increase in pediatric hospitalizations. Looks like the Spike Protein Apocalypse has begun. How much worse can these hospital conditions become? Sounds like it's time to blame those darned video games, referee whistles, and cold showers again.

Experts Estimate 20 Million are Already Dead Due to COVID Vaccination & Over 2 Billion Injured The Liberty Beacon (Link) - 10/1/22 Europe Reloaded Editor's note: These calculations, provided by Peter Halligan on his Substack account (linked to below), are based on the Lazarus Report or as is more commonly known, the Harvard-Pilgrim study from 2011, which estimated that less than 1% of vaccine adverse events are ever reported. To our knowledge, this claim has stood the test of time. As many independent doctors have noted, this ‘vaccine' has been the deadliest so far produced. THE EXPOSE Peeling back the layers of deception and obfuscation reveals a shocking truth that may not be all that shocking to our informed readers: Covid-19 “vaccines” are injuring and killing far more people than the government is letting on. Estimates compiled from pieced-together data suggest that as many as 20 million people worldwide have died so far from the shots, while another 2.2 billion have suffered injuries – and we are only just getting started. “Add the EUDRA and VAERS adverse event data on deaths and “events” together, multiply by an under-reporting factor of 40, globalize the EU+US one-eighth share of 12.5 billion global doses.   VAERS (take only the US data) 13,972 deaths and 854,084 adverse reactions to 5 August 2022 VAERS Summary for COVID-19 Vaccines through 8/5/2022 – VAERS Analysis EUDRA (ignore the headline and scoot to the first image on the landing page) – 46,999 deaths and 4,731,833 injuries 76,789 Deaths, 6,089,773 Injuries Reported in U.S. and European Databases Following COVID-19 Vaccines – Vaccine Impact Number of US injections = around 600m (increased to 608 million in the last few weeks) CDC COVID Data Tracker: Vaccinations in the US Number of EU injections = around 900m (increased to 915 million in the last few weeks) Number of global injections = around 12 billion (increased to 12.5 billion in the last few weeks) Coronavirus (COVID-19) Vaccinations – Our World in Data The Lazarus Report showing less than one in 100 vaccination injuries are reported – see page 6 of 7 that states – “..fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events are reported. Low reporting rates preclude or slow the identification of “problem” drugs and vaccines that endanger public health.” Electronic Support for Public Health–Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (ESP:VAERS) (ahrq.gov) Using a one in 100 under-reporting factor (URF) would make the injections horribly deadly and injurious (1.4 million deaths and 85 million injuries for the 600 million doses administered). A more recent attempt at estimating the URF is around 40, here: Determining the VAERS Under-Reporting Multiplier (healthimpactnews.com) So, EU+US deaths = 13,972 + 46,999 = 60,971 deaths and EU+US injuries = 854,084 + 6,089,773 = 6,943,857 (multiple per person, half of which are “serious”). Multiply by 40 for URF and then by 8 to “globalize” Global deaths are around 19.5 million SO FAR and global injuries are around 2.2 billion. In the coming months and years, these figures will balloon even higher as lingering spike proteins progressively damage the bodies of the “fully vaccinated,” leaving them prone not only to every illness that comes along (autoimmune disease) but also to deadly clots (i.e., myocarditis and pericarditis). It requires a bit of digging to come up with the aforementioned figures as governments work overtime to keep all pertinent data hidden, or at least confusing. The way post-injection injuries and deaths are calculated varies from country to country and even from municipality to municipality, making it difficult to come up with accurate numbers. The safety and effectiveness claims for the shots are also highly skewed, one way being how “cases” of the Fauci Flu are determined. All throughout the alleged pandemic, illnesses and deaths were falsely attributed to the “virus” so that later the injections could be framed as the “cure.” In 2020, before the official launch of the vaccines, the annualized rate of covid “cases” was around 70 million – and keep in mind that the official definition of a “case” is still just as murky today as it was at the beginning of the “pandemic”. Following the launch of Operation Warp Speed in the USA, the annualized number of Covid cases increased nearly fivefold to 330 million. The annualized mortality rate also increased from 1.7 million pre-Operation Warp Speed to 2.9 million post-Operation Warp Speed. This is significant because it shows that the shots are not “saving lives” as is still being claimed. The opposite is actually true as many more people are getting sick and dying in the injection era. “Rather than a 95% (or 91% in the trials) reduction in cases and deaths, there has been a 370% INCREASE in the annualized case rate,” writes Peter Halligan on his Substack.  “Annualized Deaths have INCREASED by 180%.” Halligan looked at data in the government's Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) to come up with the 20 million dead and 2.2 billion injured figures. Since VAERS only captures a very small percentage of actual vaccine-related adverse events, Halligan extrapolated true figure estimates using multiplication. The “butcher's bill from the battlefield,” as he calls it, points to these figures being far more accurate than anything the government or Big Pharma are admitting. And were these figures to spread widely across the population, there would surely be a whole lot of angry folks with a lot of questions for the powers that be. Source Published to The Liberty Beacon from EuropeReloaded.com   More Than 25% of Americans Believe They Personally Know Someone Who Died from Covid “Vaccines”   1/3/23 by: Ethan Huff   (Natural News) It is official: most people living in the United States today agree that covid “vaccines” are to blame for higher-than-normal rates of unexplained and sudden death. Further, 28 percent, or more than one in four, say they know someone who died suddenly, likely from the injections. We know this from the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey, which found that 49 percent of American adults believe that covid jab side effects are responsible for a significant number of unexplained deaths throughout the country. More than one in four, the survey also found, have been personally affected in some way by shot damage. Forty-eight percent of Americans told pollsters that they believe there are legitimate reasons to be concerned about the safety of covid injections, while 15 percent are unsure. Only 37 percent say that concerns about jab safety are the product of wild “conspiracy theories.” (Related: Since post-covid jab deaths are not being autopsied, there is no way to really know the true number of injection-caused deaths.) If you're a Democrat, chances are you got vaccinated and believe fully in the “safety and effectiveness” of the shots The poll included 1,000 American adults, 71 percent of whom say that they personally received at least one covid injection. Only 26 percent of respondents have clean, untainted blood that was not affected by the shots. Of those who never got injected, 77 percent told Rasmussen that they believe it is at least somewhat likely that covid jab side effects are associated with the uptick in unexplained deaths. Of those who took the jab(s), just 38 percent feel the same way. Forty-five percent of unvaccinated respondents told pollsters that they think they personally know someone who died because of the jabs while only 22 percent of fully jabbed adults believe the same thing. Among the fully vaccinated, 46 percent said people who worry about the safety of the jabs are spreading conspiracy theories. Just 15 percent of the unvaccinated share that same belief. “Sixty-nine percent (69%) of those who haven't gotten the COVID-19 vaccine think there are legitimate reasons to be concerned about the safety of COVID-19 vaccines, as do 40% of those who have gotten vaccinated against the virus,” Rasmussen further reported. As you might expect, the fully vaccinated lean heavily in the direction of being Democrats. Eighty-five percent of the fully jabbed who participated in the survey identify as left-wing, after all. A majority of Republicans, 63 percent, are also vaccinated, as are a majority of people not affiliated with either major party. The unvaccinated, meanwhile, remain a minority in the U.S. “More Republicans (60%) than Democrats (44%) or the unaffiliated (43%) think there are legitimate reasons to be concerned about the safety of COVID-19 vaccines,” Rasmussen further reported. “However, there is less political difference in the number who suspect someone they know might have died from vaccine side effects – 33% of Democrats and 26% of both Republicans and the unaffiliated.” What might come as a surprise to some is the fact that younger Americans tend to be less vaccinated than older Americans. The vast majority of people who complied with Operation Warp Speed are elderly – and the elderly are also less likely than younger Americans to believe that the shots are unsafe. While 35 percent of adults under 40 in the U.S. believe they personally know someone who died from covid jabs, only 28 percent of those between the ages of 40 and 64 believe that. Meanwhile, just 14 percent of Americans aged 65 and older believe there is anything to fear about the injections, showing that previous generations are far more trusting of the establishment then newer generations. EXCESS MORTALITY: Over 2400 Americans are DYING Each Day Following Vaccine Mandates… Ed Dowd Unveils Alarming, Evidence-Based Data   11/16/22 by: Mike Adams   (Natural News) Today we feature an interview with Ed Dowd, author of Unknown Causes: The Epidemic of Sudden Deaths in 2021 & 2022. Ed Dowd, along with his team of analysts, has assembled the most comprehensive and compelling data revealing excess mortality following the introduction of covid vaccines. His website where some of these results are presented is TheyLiedPeopleDied.com. Ed Dowd is also head of The Humanity Project found at this link:http://phinancetechnologies.com/HumanityProjects/Humanity%20Projects.asp Today he joins me in an interview to discuss his findings, warning that sooner or later, the medical and scientific community will be unable to ignore the fact that over 2,400 Americans are dying each day — almost certainly from vaccines — which comes to about 900,000 Americans killed in a year. Here's just one chart from Ed Dowd that shows excess deaths following the introduction of covid-19 “vaccines” (experimental mRNA injections): Across the population, Ed Dowd explains in the interview, excess mortality is running about 32%. Around 7,700 Americans routinely die each day, and 32% of that comes to 2,400+ deaths per day. That's only counting America. Global deaths are, of course, far higher. Credible estimates of global deaths from covid-19 vaccines have been compiled by other analysts and experts, and they claim that at least 20 million people have already been killed worldwide from covid-19 vaccines, making the scale of this “vaccine holocaust” more than triple the size of the historical Holocaust atrocity. If you want to watch the interview with Ed Dowd, here's the standalone interview video: Brighteon.com/fedc3b74-6f5b-42c8-9386-8f8abbd8ef91   7,500 Americans are Killed or Disabled EACH DAY as Vax Jabs Take Heavy Toll… USA Imploding Under “De-civilization” Assault   12/29/22 - by: Mike Adams   (Natural News) Ed Dowd, author of Cause Unknown ... shared updated and slightly horrifying numbers about post-vaccine excess fatalities and excess disability claims. The short version of ... is that each day in America, there are about 2,500 excess deaths and 5,000 excess disability victims due to covid-19 vaccines. This means, on average, about 7,500 Americans are removed from the potential labor pool each day. Granted, not all 7,500 are currently working, but most of them theoretically could contribute to the work force if they chose to. ... We look at the macroeconomic implications of this daily removal of 7,500 people from the potential labor pool and what it means for America's economy and military security, among other things. ... The De-civilization of the USA One of the more startling realizations in all this is that the United States of America is suffering the early stages of a “decivilization” event, not merely a temporary bump in the road. That term refers to the dismantling of the critical, complex pillars of a modern advanced civilization, rendering it unable to function. The sudden collapse of Southwest Airlines' flight schedule now being witnessed across the country is an excellent example of this. Here's an airline company that can hardly fly planes because it can't schedule its own crew members to show up. Reportedly, Southwest Airlines failed to invest in its IT systems and after “years of neglect,” the crew scheduling systems have cratered. Now the airline has cancelled more than 10,000 flights and may not survive much longer as a viable business entity. The level of rank incompetence that Southwest Airlines demonstrates here is also widely demonstrated by banks, government offices, utility companies and many other service providers. But many people miss the reasons behind it all. One of the primary reasons is that the covid vaccine is removing competent, experienced people from the work force by killing or injuring them. In fact, as Ed Dowd reveals, the vaccine did the most damage among those who are employed. 2021 was a very dangerous year to have a job, it turns out, as the Biden regime forced employers across the country to mandate vaccines for all their workers. Many workers complied with the jab mandates and have since died or become disabled as a result. The fact that 7,500 additional Americans are suffering this fate every day points to not merely an economic recession or depression, but a decivilization outcome that risks ending western civilization as we know it, forcing the vaccine survivors into an existence they hardly recognize. The “glacial Mad Max” Ed Dowd calls this the “glacial Mad Max” scenario: It's going to get very bad but not all at once. The slow, steady erosion of the pillars of civilization will become increasingly apparent over time as another 2.7 million people are killed or disabled by the vaccines each year. And that's based on current rates of mortality and disability… rates that may become significantly worse among those who continue to take the mRNA jabs that obliterate their immune systems and caused their bodies to generate mysterious fibrous clots (which are not simply blood clots, by the way). “Globalization is over,” Dowd declares in the interview (below). And that means the era of cheap, easy stuff is also coming to an end. The world we once knew, where we could visit a local Walmart or Target store and pick up foreign-made goods on the cheap, is over. From here, things are going to become a lot more expensive and less available. Rather than a global expansion into long, complex supply chains and economies of scale, we are living through the early stages of a global contraction and the collapse of globalism itself. The world is about to become a lot more local, with all the global supply chain efficiencies vanishing in short order. And this is colliding with the fact that the U.S. work culture is practically non-existent among younger Americans. They have grown up never expecting to actually produce anything. They are consumers, after all, not factory workers or creators of anything real (your favorite celebrity NFT or crypto coin doesn't count). Thus, at a time when globalization is collapsing and when Americans are going to have to grow, manufacture and process things at the local level, there's hardly any local work knowledge remaining that could accomplish such a transition. Those who know how to do anything — the working class of America — are being systematically annihilated by the jabs, leaving behind the non-working welfare class who possess no practical skills and believe they are deserving of never-ending universal basic income subsidies so they can continue to be consumers. Their world is about to come to a frustrating end, and America as a whole is going to witness the ravages of the reversal of the globalization miracle that made goods affordable, readily available and easily replaced. Why the Pentagon can't fight a war with Russia Part of the definition of a nation is the ability to project power for the purposes of both defending your own shores and also extracting resources from other nations (via trade, coercion, or otherwise). This has been accomplished throughout history under various empires such as the British Empire, and the U.S. empire mastered the art of global resources extraction with its 1944 Bretton Woods agreement and the positioning of the dollar as the world reserve currency. But to project power, a nation must maintain a degree of domestic industrialization so that it can manufacture munitions and weapons of war. This requires a long, complex supply chain of steel, polymers, oil, rubber, electronics and the like. More importantly, it requires a skilled and willing labor force that's able to work in munitions factories. No such work force currently exists among American culture. Soy boys don't build bombs, and woke idiots can't run lathes. In the USA, the productive labor force is being decimated by the jab. The culture wars have also sapped any last shred of work ethic out of the youth, rendering a generation of virtue signaling snowflakes who are incapable of using their hands to do anything other than play video games… As a result, there's nobody left in America to run the war factories. That is, until you consider the illegals who are crossing over the open borders by the millions. My contention is that the DoD plans to recruit illegals to run the munitions factories, because otherwise the United States has near-zero ability to run the industrial manufacturing necessary to sustain any real war effort with Russia or China. After killing Americans with the bioweapon, the Pentagon will recruit illegals to man the munitions factories After having sent the vast majority of its supply of artillery shells, drones, anti-tank systems and now even artillery pieces to Ukraine, the United States of America has very little left to defend itself against an invasion force from an enemy nation like China. Granted, the Pacific Ocean is a large moat, but given advances in the scale and efficiency of maritime transportation, it's no longer the formidable chasm it was in World War II. China has the capability to sail hundreds of millions of tons of military equipment to invasion forces that might assault the West Coast of America, and China has the blackmail to force Joe Biden to order America to stand down its own military as such an invasion takes place. The loss of the ability to defend your own borders is part of the decivilization now accelerating in the United States. And the vaccine fatalities and disabilities only accelerate this alarming phenomenon. Combined with the anti-fertility effects of the mRNA jab, it now looks like the USA will be utterly unable to achieve a sustainable reproduction rate to maintain its labor force.  The Americans people are being deliberately killed off and replaced by illegal migrants, and those migrants are both willing to work and capable of reproduction — two critical properties that are being stripped away from Americans via the weaponization of the vaccine. The end result of all this is not in doubt: The economic, military and demographic collapse of the United States of America — a top goal of one world government globalist types who have long regarded the USA (and its Constitution) as a thorn in the side of global domination. Thus, the positioning of the vaccine as a depopulation weapon is just one part of an engineered collapse event designed to take down America and terrorize the world with another set of carefully planned (and previously simulated) crisis events. You are being annihilated, then replaced Those who fail to understand the macroeconomic and geopolitical implications of the vaccine depopulation scheme are missing the bigger picture. It isn't merely about killing people off, it's about killing certain people so they can be replaced by a foreign workforce that's still willing to run the munitions factories and sweep the floors. The robot takeover, after all, hasn't arrived yet. Until it does, the globalists are happy to make do with a migrant takeover, just as long as they can keep the weapons factories operating as long as possible. The vaccines targeted the most competent, first world professionals on purpose. As those people are swept out of the way, they will be replaced by obedient, low-education illegals who will be granted amnesty, then work permits, and then voting rights to help keep the uniparty in power as they engineer the total collapse of western civilization — a process now accelerating by the day across Western Europe, by the way. Note carefully that both Democrats and RINO Republicans are all in favor of amnesty. This should be no surprise once you understand the reality of the replacement effort now under way. In summary, we are not merely watching genocide; we are witnessing the permanent rejiggering of the economic order by malicious, anti-human Luciferians who celebrate death and destruction. Every person who takes another booster shot is inadvertently working on their behalf, by the way, helping to achieve their malicious aims. And to top it all off, the oblivious masses have no idea any of this is happening, even as their own family, friends and coworkers are being maimed or killed by the vaccines. The global vaccine holocaust is being carried out right under the noses of the ignorant, and thanks to CIA-controlled narratives across media and tech platforms, those who don't possess the mental capacity to question false authority are instead spellbound by it, and they will soon be destroyed by it. Praise Delivers Us from Our Enemies Anna Stewart - 1/3/23 (David's notes in red)   I dreamed I was sitting on a bench outside of a building that was elevated off of the ground. The building was made up of four parts with a pathway intersection dividing it through the middle. I seemed to be on the east side of the building. A large man was sitting with me, and I had my head on his shoulder, but I never saw his face (the Lord). Other believers were also there with us.    Then we came under siege from the enemy. Men were patrolling and not allowing anyone to leave the bench. The enemy seemed to be “the French” but they looked more like ancient Roman soldiers. (The French and Roman overlords of history terrorized and persecuted people who didn't agree with their ideology, such as Christians today, as we will see.)   At one point a group of soldiers stampeded their horses right past us, while the horsemen cracked long scourging whips at us. The cracks of the whips were so loud and I could see the metal on the ends of the whips, but I wasn't afraid. No one was hurt by them.    Then … Michael, said that we needed to praise the Lord. I got up and raised my arms and started walking around the building singing Revelation Song. Others joined me. As we got to the south side of the building I could see that the enemy filled the huge open space before the building. They were firing gunshots at us and using many forms of ancient artillery.    I thought to myself that I would rather die praising the Lord than sitting on the bench. (Sitting on the bench means you're not in the game; You're a serf.) I didn't look at the enemy but just focused on praising the Lord. It was in the back of my mind that the Lord might even supernaturally keep us from enemy fire as a testimony.    After three or four times around the house, I finally looked down where the enemy had been and saw that they were scattering and fleeing. Praise the Lord! (Let's try it on the Beast of our day like in Psalm 149:6-9 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand; 7 To execute vengeance upon the nations, And punishments upon the peoples; 8 To bind their kings with chains, And their nobles with fetters of iron; 9 To execute upon them the judgment written: This honor have all his saints. Praise ye Jehovah.)   Only One  Wings of Prophesy - 10/20/11 (Reposted 1/1/23) (David's notes in red)   (Though this word has been reposted once, it is such a serious and powerful word, I feel it warrants us being reminded again.)   “The days ahead will require you to determine and decide who and what is really your god. Many of you think you know already but you have never truly been made to choose only one. You think you will choose Me above all others, but you see not the gods lurking within your mind and heart. Gods the enemy used to tempt you away from Me.”   (At this point I heard heartbreaking sadness in the voice of the Lord, like you hear in the voice of someone who just found out their spouse was unfaithful).   “Some of you have allowed these gods to invade your lives. You have welcomed them. Some of you are even aware of their presence, yet you do nothing to cleanse your hearts of them, thinking I will understand and excuse your idolatry.   Did I not say in My Word thou shalt have no other gods before Me?” (At this point I heard serious anger in the Lord's voice)“And so you shall not. If you are Mine, act like it.   Days coming will bring hard circumstances that will require you to choose which god you will serve. Only one. Think hard and decide well, My children, for this choice cannot be undone.   Some of My children have already chosen. They have followed Me wherever I led them, laying aside their own dreams and desires and taking up My cross. For them this choice has already been made and the days to come will be far easier than for others.   For those who have remained enmeshed in the world and all of its temptations, the times to come will be very hard indeed; for you have lived a soft life, putting your faith in what you can see instead of Me. Your faith is flimsy. It is like a reed that bends with every new wind of doctrine. You are easily deceived because you have not built your house of faith on the Rock of My Son.   You must choose which god you will serve for the rest of your earthly lives. That is the god you will serve in eternity as well.   My children, many of you underestimate the importance and lateness of the time you live in. You do not see My Son's return approaching. Did I not say like a thief in the night? Yet many of you do nothing to prepare yourselves for His soon return.   Will His Bride not ready herself for her Groom? Will yo be found not dressed when the wedding party arrives? Will you be left behind?    You must think on these things now while there is still time and choose well. In the days soon coming, chaos shall abound in many nations. There will be very little time to think later for some of you who read this word. Your lives will be cut short because of “this disaster” or “that uprising”.   Do not make the mistake of thinking you have more time than you do. Some decisions should not be put off until another time. Do not be like the “rich man” in My Word who stored up in his barns and set himself to enjoy his worldly pleasures, whose soul was required of him that night, for you know not the seriousness of all that is about to transpire.   Do not wait. Choose now. Which god will you serve?   I have given you all you need to survive and prosper in this time. You need only ask to receive of what I have for you.   Adversity has risen up against you time and time again. Many of you have prayed and asked why this is so. Adversity is your teacher, My children. Adversity brings hardship that prepares you for what is harder still that is yet to come.   Trust Me. I can see further down the road into your future, you cannot. This is why you must allow Me to guide your paths and not try to understand every tiny nuance of what happens. It is not always for you to understand, but for you to simply obey Me in faith, trusting that I love you. I know what is best for all concerned.   This next year will bring many changes you cannot see from where you are. I am trying to position each of you to be ready for these changes but some of you resist My paths. This will cause further hardship to come into your lives. Often what My children suffer is a result of not obeying Me at some earlier time.   Some of what is to come is far worse than My children are expecting. I am trying to protect you by guiding your paths to a safer place. Obey Me and all shall be well. Resist and you are left with the results of your own way.   Come up high with Me. Let us commune together as you worship Me in Spirit and in truth. Allow Me to prepare you for all that is to come.”   Mat. 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.   Exo. 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.   Mat. 11:7 And as these went their way, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to behold? a reed shaken with the wind?   Jas 4:4 Ye adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore would be a friend of the world maketh himself an enemy of God.   1Pe. 2:7-8 For you therefore that believe is the preciousness: but for such as disbelieve, The stone which the builders rejected, The same was made the head of the corner; 8 and, A stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence; for they stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.   Luk 12:16-20 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: 17 and he reasoned within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have not where to bestow my fruits? 18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my grain and my goods. 19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, be merry. 20 But God said unto him, Thou foolish one, this night is thy soul required of thee; and the things which thou hast prepared, whose shall they be?   Jos. 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve Jehovah, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve Jehovah.   Isa. 30:20 And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be hidden anymore, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers;   Pro. 3:5-7 Trust in Jehovah with all thy heart, And lean not upon thine own understanding: 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, And he will direct thy paths. 7 Be not wise in thine own eyes; Fear Jehovah, and depart from evil:   Joh. 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth: for such doth the Father seek to be his worshippers.   Video Links to other informative videos:   "A Very Large Increase In Deaths"!!

Public relations is a relatively new concept compared to other professions such as law or medicine. The idea of PR stems from the concept of communication, which dates all the way back to the philosophers of Ancient Greece. Most of us know about Socrates and Plato, and we've used Aristotle's art of rhetoric (Ethos, Logos and Pathos) in our writing.   But many people don't know that Ancient Greece is in fact the foundation of PR. The idea of using communication to persuade is one of the first practical uses of public relations.   The idea of spreading communication (or persuasion) to the masses comes from the early 15th century and Pope Gregory XII, who coined the term “propaganda” as we know it today. The term was repurposed from a Latin word used to describe a commission of cardinals tasked with spreading Catholicism to non-Catholic countries.   Fast forward to the birth of America, where mass communication was used in full swing to gain independence from the British Empire. Founding Father Samuel Adams spread political messages to oppose the British monarchy, inspiring the famous anti-tax protest now known as the Boston Tea Party in 1773. Three years later, Thomas Paine published “Common Sense,” a pamphlet meant to persuade the masses to support the American Revolution from Great Britain. And, just months later, the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776.  Continue reading here.    Activate The PR Maven® Flash Briefing on your Alexa Device.    Join The PR Maven® Facebook group page.    Sign up for email notifications for when new episodes are released.

Lockdown and Covid-19 has taught us to be adaptive if nothing else and Joseph J. Jordan decided to use this seismic change in our world to do something he has wanted to do all his life…become an author. Little did he know that when he started his writing journey in January 2021 at the age of 33 his first two books of The British Empire of Magic trilogy would become best sellers and reach that elusive Number One spot on the Amazon Hot Releases genre specific chart in the UK and USA. You would think with no formal education and leaving school during his primary education years there maybe a stumbling block or two in deciding to become an author but Joseph didn't let this stop him, after all his childhood was one of unconventional circumstances. To explain better we have to start at the beginning within an isolated forested bay in the depths of west country, England. Joseph grew up in a house called ‘Trees' located in ‘Woody Bay', yes…it is as magical as it sounds. His mother is an actual rock star, ‘Elkie Brooks' often referred to as the British Queen of The Blues and is one of the most successful female singers in the history of British music. So it is safe to assume that creativity is in his DNA and the need to share it with the world almost innate but before his writing career began Joseph packed a lot into his life. Touring the world with his mothers singing career until he was 17, followed by a brief stint in modelling and acting. He appeared in a hugely popular Pepsi TV commercial airing within the UAE but that was not to last before sports took a huge role in his late teens and most of his twenties. Winning his first national competition in paragliding at 18 and later marathon running became a huge passion. Then in his late twenties after returning back to England from living in Canada and then Switzerland for a few years, Joseph started his first business – Jordan Joseph (a sports apparel brand) most notably the label was worn by pop super star Pixie Lott. Drawing on the confidence from his first business he then co-founded the UK's first 100% plastic free hamper brand in 2018 which kept him busy until COVID-19 struck… Everything changed for everyone very quickly and Joseph was no exception. After a year of trying to get used to the new normal, living in a COVID world Joseph took the leap into the unknown and began a journey that would change his life forever. He first put pen to paper so-to-speak in January 2021 and the story of The British Empire of Magic begun.  The story of Prince Jacob living in a world of magic and wonder with his partner Elliot. Jacob has his trust shattered by his mother, the Queen as the return of his oldest friend changes everything when he reveals a shocking truth and the race is on to stop a war that could destroy both the magic and human worlds. After a couple of months of prolific writing and 30000 words later his first book was self-published with Amazon. Joseph recalls when his book went live for all the world to see a wave of both pride and complete terror overwhelmed him. What would people think? The response was nothing short of five star reviews which flooded in fast. It reached the top 20 Hot New Releases on Amazon which in Joseph's own words ‘blew his mind' but what was even more important than the sales was the feedback he was getting from the LGBTQ community. Having Prince Jacob the protagonist as a gay man and in a relationship within the story resonated deeply in the LGBTQ community and the importance of the inclusion and representation in a 8+/YA/Adult reader base was sadly something very rare within the fantasy genre. Joseph received multiple DMs and emails from LGBTQ readers thanking him for representing them. Subsequently Joseph became very aware of the responsibly he now carried for the next two books in The British Empire of Magic trilogy which both entered the Amazon new release and best seller chart at No. 1 in UK & USA. Joseph is now currently writing a brand new trilogy called The Clima-Race featuring diverse protagonists of ethnic backgrounds and bi-sexuality .  “ The year is 2100 and our planet has been ravaged by climate change but Isabel Hope believes there is a discovery that could save humanity. As CEO of Hope Incorporated she uses her power and wealth to help steer a new generation that could be the future of all humankind. However, she quickly encounters resistance, engulfing her twin sons, nineteen year old Elijah and Hajile who unknowingly find themselves at the centre of what could be the biggest leap in human evolution. World leaders and corporate titans clash in this epic journey of destiny, loyalty, deception and heart breaking loss, as only the bravest will fight to save their family and humanity as one.” Discover More: Social Links & Amazon Author Page  https://www.instagram.com/josephjjordanofficial  https://twitter.com/josephjjordanuk    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Joseph-J-Jordan/e/B08XNL8PKH/ref=dp_byline_cont_pop_ebooks_1      https://www.amazon.com/Joseph-J-Jordan/e/B08XNL8PKH/ref=dp_byline_cont_pop_ebooks_1 YouTube: https://youtu.be/UaYUY9M7gG4 ***Head on over to Creatrix Compass and explore our many offerings from free inspiration to get your creative juices flowing to creativity classes to creativity coaching and life coaching for creatives.  It can all be found at: https://www.creatrixcompass.com Your donation helps us continue to spread creativity throughout the land.  Thank you! https://www.paypal.com/donate?hosted_button_id=2PM3V82XDS7GA  Music: Good Friends Inc by Jonathan Boyle

Today we've chosen to re-air our episode with one of the great pioneers of Canadian women's running, Diane Palmason. Sadly, Diane passed away over the Thanksgiving weekend in Courtenay BC and we feel so fortunate to have had this delightful conversation with her back in July 2021.Diane recalls how she discovered her love of running at a Sunday school picnic when she was just seven years old. By 12 she was recruited to train with the Mercury Athletic Club, a women's only track club coached by the legendary 1928 Olympian Myrtle Cook. Diane's career dates back to before women were allowed to run anything longer than 220 yards in competition, but in 1954 at the age of 16 she proudly represented Canada at the British Empire and Commonwealth Games in Vancouver BC. This was the same competition where both Roger Bannister and John Landy ran under 4-minutes for the mile in the same race, so Diane even got to witness the “miracle mile.”With no more opportunities to pursue, Diane retired from running at the age of 17 and carried on with her life. She went to university, became a teacher, married and had four children. Over 20 years went by before she burst back onto the scene, inspired by Eleanor Thomas' win at the inaugural National Capital Marathon in 1975. Since then Diane has broken Canadian records in every age group from W40-W70 and at every distance from 100m to 80k. In 2003 Diane broke seven Canadian records from 100m to the marathon all within five months, some of which were also world records.  This conversation is a history lesson delivered through amazing storytelling. We owe Diane and the female runners of her time a debt of gratitude for spearheading a revolution and changing the commonly held beliefs about what women are capable of, particularly into their masters years. Resources we discussed in the episode:Margaret Webb's book, Older Faster Stronger, where Diane is featured.Roger Bannister and John Landy's "miracle mile"Jim Peters marathon collapseKathrine Switzer's book, Marathon WomanAge grading calculatorConnect with Carolyn & Kim:Kim's InstagramKim's FacebookCarolyn's InstagramCarolyn's FacebookCarolyn's website (sign up for her free weekly newsletter on the homepage)We love hearing from you!

Bathsheba Demuth is an environmental historian and writer who spends much of her time in Arctic communities across Eurasia and North America. Her work draws on archives, ecology, and experience of the landscape to ask how places and people change each other.

In this essay series she brings us into the intertwined pasts of people and animals of the lands and waters around the Bering Strait - the ice-studded stretch of ocean between Alaska and the Russian far east. She shows how dogs, whales, walruses, caribou, and salmon have helped make history - and in turn, how people have changed how they value and relate to creatures finned and furred.

This is a repeat of an Irish Passport classic episode, "Ireland and India: Assassins of Empire", originally published on June 21 2021. Today, Leo Varadkar takes over as Taoiseach. This means that both Britain and Ireland have governments led by people of Indian heritage, as in London Rishi Sunak took over as prime minister in October. The coincidence has provoked renewed curiosity in these leaders, their backgrounds, and the complex shared history between Ireland and India under the British Empire. To mark the day, we're reposting our episode about that very topic: 'Ireland and India: Assassins of Empire'. Anarchist clubs, public assassinations, and secret rebel meetings in a notorious vegetarian restaurant – all these feature in this fascinating episode on the historical links between Ireland and India at the beginning of the 20th century. UCD's Conor Mulvagh explains why Ireland and India were so symbolically important to the survival of the British Empire, and why the independence movements in both countries were often deeply intertwined. We hear how Indian law students in Dublin joined rebel militias, forged friendships with leaders of the Easter Rising, and later took inspiration from Irish nationalism to challenge the British Raj. Vikrant Sharma, founder of the international relations website The Global Telescope, tells us about the many parallels between Ireland and India's history of British rule, and how both should perhaps be considered in a larger framework of colonial strategy and nationalist resistance.

Salvation and  Stuff

William Episode 27: Hello, thank you for joining us today! It takes a near act of God for someone to stand back and view themselves, and their culture with a wide angle lens - To rise above their own time and view things from an eternal or heavenly perspective. Everyone can and usually does critique history  quite well when they look back on time… But it's something special and rare for one to do it in real time and space with grace and with truth. It is nearly impossible for people to internally realize the their own personal short comings, or their blind spots, and then to recognize it externally, in their own time and culture, without having adopted it, or more often, become complacent to it. Above this, it is even more difficult to not only see the changes that need to be made but then do the hard work in implementing them - to actually change the cultural and political norm of one's day. To try this and fail, and get up and fail again, time and time again…..To get back up and try over and over…. until your life is spent….with no promise of success. This is what we'll look at in today's narrative.I was going to say that this is “a” story…. but really, due to its immense scope, its nature, and its extreme rarity, this is “the” story of a man's life given to change a worldwide and institutional practice, so openly accepted and ingrained in cultures times-past, that to identify it and capture it, would be like trying to separate the air surrounding you from the air inside your lungs…. Slavery was normal. It was in the air that all people breathed. Although practiced by all people in all of history, the very small framed William Wilburforce determined to change that. By the grace of God, William would spearhead the movement that would change the world forever.Eric Metaxas wrote, that “[William] Wilberforce overturned not just European civilization's view of slavery but its view of almost everything in the human sphere; and that is why it's nearly impossible to do justice to the enormity of his accomplishment: it was nothing less than a fundamental and important shift in human conscience.” Intro XVLet's look into William's life and times and ask God to give us clarity, and vision for what He may have for us in our life and times today.……Episode 27, William, starts now.William Wilberforce was born on August 24th, 1759. He was an abnormally small and fragile boy — in fact he would never grow taller than 5' 3”. From his childhood, William would suffer from a weak and sickly constitution accompanied with poor eyesight. So, with the recent death of his eldest sister and his father, the young and ill-looking eight-year-old, William, felt even smaller. On top of this all, William's mother was becoming very sick. With her nearing the verge of death, his relatively comfortable world that he had known was crashing down around him.As a result of losing his father, sister, and now, possibly his mother, little William was forced to move from his small town of Hull close to the large city of London with his Aunt Hannah and Uncle William. Not only was he moving to a completely new environment, with a new school, and new caretakers, but his Aunt as Uncle were Methodists.The new break off sect of the Church of England started by John Wesley nearly three decades before was largely viewed with contempt. At the time, Methodists were considered to be religious radicals - fanatics who took the gospel of Jesus seriously and passionately in a time where Bibles were only opened on Sunday mornings and where Christian teachings stayed safely within church walls. Both Anglicans and non-religious people frowned upon Methodists and their zeal of God. Later, William wrote about this time in his life saying, “It's impossible for you to have any idea of the hatred in which the Methodists were then held. I cannot better explain it to you than by than saying that it is more like the account given in Ivanhoe of the persecutions against the Jews, than anything else I know.” (Metaxas, p. 12).At the time, the prospect for the small and fatherless boy seemed overwhelming. Yet, this was the plan of God for William, without which he would never be the same - nor would the world.___________________________________________________________________________William's Aunt and Uncle had a profound influence upon the young boy — and it was precisely because they were not, what William's mother had hoped, just nominal Anglicans. Besides being extremely wealthy, and befriending many notable people in both the church and state, it was from them that William truly saw the Christian faith put into everyday practice. His Aunt and Uncle were also friends with some of the most dominate Christian figures of the century, namely, John Newton and George Whitefield.Whitefield had traveled to America several times and was on his 13th and last trip to America when William came to live with his Aunt and Uncle. Whitefield, had an impact on William, although indirectly, as it's doubtful the two ever met. But young William did meet John Newton, the slave trader-turned-pastor and author of “Amazing Grace”. Throughout the years, the two became very close. William regarded Newton as his spiritual father. By the age of fourteen, William wrote a paper against the slave trade. No doubt, much of his knowledge of it came from Newton's influence.Concerned that William was being overly affected by her Methodist relatives, William's mother and grandfather moved him back to Hull. William had only spent two years with his Aunt and Uncle but he had grown to cherish them dearly. He wrote them shortly after leaving London saying, “I can never forget you as long as I live.” (Metaxas 12). Soon after William reluctantly returned to Hull, to his delight, the headmaster of his school, Joseph Milner, had become a passionate Methodist as well. And so, despite being in Hull, mostly surrounded by people who were nothing like his Aunt and Uncle, William still found encouragement in these formative years while his young faith and biblical worldview were developing.Just 3 months after the rebels in the United States declared their independence from Britain, the seventeen year old William entered St. John's College in Cambridge in 1776.___________________________________________________________________________Typical of young men his age, college for William began with much socializing, singing, card playing and late night drinking. In these years, William was blossoming into a charismatic man. Because he could sing quite well and charm people with his speech, he was always looked on with favor and gladly received by all people. William had the unique ability to captivate those around him with the rare and welcomed capability to be both moral and entertaining. With the recent death of his grandfather, William was left with a large inheritance which not only allowed William to throw extravagant parties, but would be crucial in his future in politics, where money played a big part in being elected.William's induction into Parliament came earlier than he probably intended. In college, William became close friends with William Pitt. Pitt, a statesmen himself, was the son of the famed Prime Minister, William Pitt the Elder. Throughout college, the two young Williams became very close and maintained a devoted friendship that would last for years to come. It was with Pitt's encouragement that William decided to try his hand in politics — getting the idea to represent the city of Hull in the House of Commons. Having just turned 21, and throwing a birthday party sparing no expense, William found himself elected as a member of Parliament, having received more votes than his two challengers combined. And within only a few years, his dear friend advanced in his own career as a politician. The twenty four-year-old, William Pitt, would become the youngest Prime Minister in English history, being appointed by the King on December 18, 1783.But in the midst of all the limelight and success, William began to question his existence, namely his faith and purpose in life. As he mused on the simple faith he once had as a child, he could not help but notice the dreadful gap between himself and God's holiness. He read the Bible often leading him to confess in his diary, “I believe all the great truths of the Christian religion, but I am not acting as though I did.” (Metaxas, p. 53). Wanting to have a real faith like his Aunt and Uncle, William found himself in a predicament as Methodists and their ilk were still not welcomed in Parliament or high society, both of which William was deeply entwined.It's no wonder then that William spent much of his time reading, praying, and writing in his diary, about the looming decision awaiting him. William knew that he wanted to pursue and follow God above all else. This was the “Great Change” that William would refer to years later. Having reached out to his close fiends and mentors for advice, William laid out the problem that he wanted to be a faithful Christian but that it was probably incompatible with a life of a politician. His dear friend Pitt acknowledged William's desire to live as a Christian unfettered by social or political constraints but encouraged him to stay in Parliament. Heartened, William was still not convinced and decided to converse with his old friend John Newton, who was now sixty years old. Newton, like Pitt, advised William that a life of politics and religion can indeed coexist. Soon after, speaking of William, Newton wrote a friend, “I hope the Lord will make him a blessing both as a Christian and a statesman. How seldom do these characteristics coincide!! But they are not incompatible.” (Metaxas p. 61).With that, William had decided to remain in parliament — resolved to let his faith in God dictate not only his character but more importantly the policies he would soon put forward. It was a balance act. With diligence, William now had to let his biblical theology or those “great Christian truths” permeate his  personal and political life, without losing his influence and charismatic ability to persuade.  ___________________________________________________________________________The twenty-six-tear-old, was now back in the House of Commons and set before himself two “great objects” that he would sacrifice the remainder of his life to. The second of the “great objects” was the reformation of manners. Being in the very heart of London, William had a front row seat to society's many ailments that not only affected the poor, but the rich, and everyone in between. Being one the largest cities of the time, disease, overcrowding and crime were rampant. The death penalty was unjust and carried out by public hangings and even public burnings at times. Grotesque violence was commonplace. Animal cruelty like dogfights and bull-baiting were also displayed in the public square for people's amusement. Alcoholism and addiction were also destroying families namely among the poor. Many infants were often abandoned and died from neglect as more and more parents left reality for the temporary comfort of alcohol and opium. Poverty also led many to obtain finances through the the sex trade. At the time, twenty-five percent of unmarried women in London were prostitutes. The average age of those girls was sixteen and there were even brothels that provided the services of fourteen year-old adolescents.This dark culture in which William lived stood in stark contrast to many of the core truths of Christianity like self control, sobriety, sexual purity, and compassion. All of these Christian characteristics and callings were based upon the foundational doctrine of seeing the “Imago Dei” the (image of God) in oneself and in others. As a result, its no wonder that most people didn't see anything wrong or immoral with the slave trade. It was just another custom of the culture. Thus, William's second “great object” to change or reform the practices of society, naturally led to his first “great object” — the suppression of the slave trade.While Willian was laying the groundwork towards both of these goals, it wasn't until he was twenty-eight years old that he famously penned in his diary, “God almighty has set before me two great objects: the suppression of the slave trade and the reformation of manners.” (Metaxas p. 85). Soon after, William determinedly wrote, ”So enormous, so dreadful, so irremediable did the [slave] trade's wickedness appear that my own mind was completely made up for abolition. Let the consequences be what they would: I from this time determined that I would never rest until I had effected it's abolition.” ___________________________________________________________________________The task in front William did not just seem overwhelming, it was. For years to come, more than he could have ever thought, William would have to work with all types of people in every possible way to see any amount of success. Thankfully, there were others who shared his same sentiments and like him, were willing to risk their livelihood. From artist's, poets, theologians, and preachers to Quakers, sailors, and escaped slaves, all participated in various ways.In 1783, four years before William penned his two ‘great objects' the Quakers had already set up the ‘Committee on the Slave Trade' which attracted the attention of Granville Sharp and Thomas Clarkson — two giants in the cause to end slavery. Under their leadership, the Quakers committee soon became the more influential 'Society for the Abolition of the Slave Trade'. At this same time, (1787) William helped to found the ‘Society for the Reformation of Manners'.But just as the movement was gaining recognition, and William was laying the groundwork to bring a bill to the House of Commons, he became very sick with fevers and exhaustion. In February of 1788 William became so ill with diarrhea and chronic stomach pain that doctors believed he was nearing death. After aiding him, the physicians concluded that William was suffering from an “absolute decay of all [his] digestive tracts.” Fearing the worst, they began to prescribe Opium. To their surprise, the opiate which William would remain on for the remainder of his life, worked better than expected. While he slowly regained his strength, William would be afflicted with stomach infections for the rest of his life and dependent upon the drug which didn't help his worsening eyesight.Despite this setback, about a year and a half after this, on May 12, 1789, William was back in the House of Commons. Mustering all of his oratory skills, William delivered his first major speech, putting forward twelve propositions for abolition of the slave trade. His discourse would last for three-and-a-half hours through which he graphically explained the horrific conditions of the  transatlantic route. Although William made the case that his propositions would be economically beneficial to the country, he did not hide that the primary purpose for abolition should be due to principle — the principles of conscience and of justice, and ultimately “the laws of religion and of God.”While the oration was noted as being one of William's greatest by many notable people, the members of Parliament remained unconvinced. The debate ended with a decision to hear more evidence. In effect, nothing politically or lawfully changed and so William and all those working with him suffered their first of many legislative defeats. And although William's speech heartened many, as it vocalized a growing movement toward civility, it also raised the ire of others.William had become the most public target of many who opposed abolition. Scottish biographer and lawyer, James Boswell, turned on William by publishing a blistering rhyme attacking not only his Christian faith but small stature writing, “Go Wilberforce with narrow skull, Go home and preach away at Hull. Go, Wilberforce, be gone, for shame, Thou dwarf with big resounding name,” (Metaxas p. 156). The Prince of Wales also singled out William as did the King of England's third son, the Duke of Clarence. William's life was directly threatened by some slave-ship captains. Besides this, fanciful rumors were spread around that William was a cruel and violent husband — a man who would often beat his wife. Regardless that William wasn't even courting a woman at the time, let alone married, the constant attacks upon him and his cause were always hurtful. For many across the globe, their income was directly or indirectly dependent upon the well being of the slave trade. Thus, William's leadership for its abolition was unwanted and resisted tooth and nail.Regardless, year after year, William was resolute in putting forth bills to chip away at the institution from every possible angle. And for various reasons, (whether it was because the French Revolution was unfolding to the south or the American rebels fighting for independence across the Atlantic) England found itself intertwined among dangerous revolutions discovering reasons or excuses to hinder any progress for abolition. Meanwhile, that the barbaric and evil slave trade ran as usual, was not lost to William. It vexed him greatly. But although precious time was passing into the darkness of history, William's purpose and resolve was only growing brighter. After ten years the tide was beginning to change.___________________________________________________________________________A welcomed reprieve and a great personal encouragement to William after many years of legislative losses, was meeting his future wife, Barbara Ann Spooner. In April of 1797, the two met at a dinner party in the city of Bath. Only after eight days of getting to know each other, they were engaged and would be married within a month's time. On May 30, of the same year, the thirty-seven-year-old William married his twenty-year-old bride Barbara Ann. Although she nearly died from typhoid early in their marriage, Barbara recovered and would continue raising a family with her husband. And within ten short years of marriage, William found himself closer than ever to his beautiful wife, who shared his same heart for Christian reform, while fathering two girls and four young boys. With Barbara's influence and help, William would not only continue to fight for abolition, but many other social changes as well. In 1804, William helped found the British and Foreign Bible Society as well and the Church Missionary Society. In a very real sense, the more missionaries bringing Christian principles to new people groups could only bolster the movement for abolition.As William had become painfully aware, he'd need all the help he could get. But oddly, that help to advance abolition came through the early death of his best friend and Prime Minister, William Pitt. In January of 1806, the forty-six-year-old Pitt died from ulcers and chronic stomach problems. He past away unmarried and without any children. William Grenville, Pitt's cousin, and long time friend of Wilburforce was then elected as the new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Grenville, who had long believed the slave trade was an evil and cruel institution, sensed the public sentiment was leaning in favor of abolition and decided to become personally involved in the battle to help advance it.By now though, after nearly two decades of losses, the forty-seven-year-old William, was not as optimistic. But although the small framed man was even smaller and weaker than he had been as a youth, his spirit and mind were not. And even though William had endured many political defeats, he was still heartened by the Prime Minister's willingness to engage in the progress for abolition. On January 2, 1807 Grenville personally read the bill before the House of Lords. A month later on February 5, the second reading of the bill was given. This ignited a long debate in Parliament that would last throughout the night. Again, Grenville, the new Prime Minister, gave a speech championing William's twenty year effort to abolish the slave trade. And as Wilburforce had done years before, Grenville likewise appealed to his fellow member's morality — presenting the case that the bill for abolition should pass because it was both the ethical and virtuous choice for any nation, let alone a Christian one.After many orations were presented throughout the night, in a stunning ending, the votes were finally cast and tallied at 5:00 in the morning. The bill for abolition had past by 46 counts! Undoubtedly, William and all those with him were surprised and thrilled. But William's excitement was tempered as the bill would still need to pass one last time in the House of Commons. The date was set three weeks away for February 23.William knew that for the bill to succeed in it's final reading and vote, God would have to “turn the hearts of men” — namely, the West Indian planters who constantly resisted the bill. But by William's political insight, he astonishingly counted on having their favor. By an act of God's grace, William believed that abolition had now become popular, even to some of those who prospered from it. The twenty years of effort and sacrifice from William and all those working with him had changed the public's sentiment and it seemed now that the writing was on the wall.At last, the day arrived for the bill's 3rd and final reading. After commencing, member after member arose to give their speech. As one finished, more eagerly stood to address the Parliament. As the hours past, the momentum seemed to be swelling, not only in favor of abolition but in favor of its champion, William Wilburforce. Sir Samuel Romilly, the solicitor-general  and an admirer of William stirred the crowd to tears by eloquently contrasting Wilburforce as England's peacemaker to Napoleon as France's warlord. Humbled by this show of approval and praise, William began to shed tears of joy. Upon seeing this, the house was filled with great applause and sincere cheers! It was in this atmosphere that the 299 votes were then cast. After a short count, the House would vote 283 in favor of the bill to only 16 against.The battle to end the slave trade was officially won on February 23, 1807.___________________________________________________________________________Although the slave trade had legally ended in England, nearly 20 years after William resolved to end it, slavery itself had not. While terminating the trade would serve as a moral light for other countries to emulate, the question that William would continue to fight for was whether England could go even further and abolish slavery all together. By now, William was not young, nor was he healthy, but he was mature and determined to continue the battle to reform England's manners — which included many social reforms but could not be made more evident than to legall
