Chanukkah, the Rededication of the Temple

Chanukkah begins today at sundown, December 16, 2014.

Chanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights, Feast of Dedication, is an eight-day Jewish holiday commemorating the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt against the Seleucid Empire of the 2nd century BC. Hanukkah is observed for eight nights and days, starting on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar.

The festival is observed by the kindling of the lights of a unique candelabrum, the nine-branched menorah or hanukiah, one additional light on each night of the holiday, progressing to eight on the final night. The typical menorah consists of eight branches with an additional visually distinct branch. The extra light is called a shamash (Hebrew: שמש‎, "servant") and is given a distinct location, usually above the rest.

Although it was not one of the Feasts of Yahovah described in the Torah, Jesus celebrated it, John 10:22-23, as He is the Light of the World, John 8:12, Who is the "Servant" Light and Who also calls us to be lights, Matthew 5:14, and His Temple, 1 Corinthians 3:16.  Although the Jews observe these feast days, they are much richer in meaning to us who have the Messiah, and the fulfilment of this feast, since it is those with the Light of Messiah in them that are the true Temple and light to the world.

Take this time with your families to rededicate yourselves to He who is our Salvation, Yeshua, ישוע.  In fact, His Name, Yeshua, or Jesus, means יהוה (Yahovah) Saves.  Let Him Light your light, and be the light to the world that He has called you to be.

REPENT AMERICA! Mystery Babylon, The End is Near


 


The Resistance in Olympia WA: We Will Not Comply Olympia Was Bundy Ranch II

By Mike Vanderboegh:

(NOTE: If you agree with this assessment, please spread it far and wide. -- Mike.)
Mark the date down in your memories -- 13 December 2014. Remember it. Savor it. The victory won in the cold, dreary Northwest on Saturday was every bit as significant a moment in the modern fight for American liberty against encroaching tyranny as the uprising in the Nevada desert back in April.
Perhaps more so. For if Bundy Ranch was a spontaneous, almost reflexive, slap in the face to the arrogant tyrants of this country, Olympia was a carefully thought out, brilliantly conceived, flawlessly executed, DELIBERATE backhand to the same ginning bunch of constitutional thieves. Olympia provides a textbook case for other states to resist their own petty dictators.
I hope that Gavin Seim and his brave band of brothers and sisters take a moment this next week to write down in detail -- from each of their individual perspectives -- an accounting of what they did and how they overcame every obstacle to pull off this singular demonstration of the power of the armed citizenry. We will need these narratives both for posterity and for immediate planning of other fights in other states..
Consider. In a little over a month, these Washingtonians formulated a plan and executed it against all all odds -- against the threats of the authorities, against the denunciations and name-calling of so-called "mainstream 2nd Amendment groups" who claim to be their allies, against the deliberate refusal of the press to publicize their efforts, against the howling lies told by Media Matters and the Southern Poverty Law Center -- they executed a plan that absolutely negated and nullified the elite's "victory" of I-594 and wiped the leering, smugly satisfied grins from the billionaire faces of Bill Gates, Paul Allen and Michael Bloomberg.
Consider. They did all this without a without a permit, without bowing and scraping to their "betters" in the bureaucracy, without being trapped in the web of arcane rules and deliberate deceit designed to control the citizenry and limit their ability to make trouble for the political bosses. And they did it in the bluest of blue states.
They did it by means of the courage in their hearts, inteeligent determination in their heads and FIREARMS IN THEIR HANDS. They thought -- and acted -- outside the box. They created a new paradigm. And at the end of it they were praised by the state police for their competence and their flawless execution of a brilliant plan.
As I said, I hope they take the opportunity to document for the rest of us how they carried off this feat of armed civil disobedience. The authorities will coming back at them with all the malice that these evil people are capable of.
They will also need to guard against the sin of pride. They need to remain humble. They need to remain vigilant. They need to be wary of all the many ways a tyranny with unlimited resources can attack them, including using their own human weaknesses against them.
But for now, they should be proud in their accomplishment. I know I am proud to have been here and helped. This hill, a very important one, has been taken. There are many more such hills ahead. Join us in this fight. There are many more battles to be won and we will need every man and every woman if liberty is to triumph and the Founders' Republic is to be saved.

"I Will Not Comply" Rally, Olympia, WA


 


Behind Enemy Lines - Mike Vanderboegh's Speech at Olympia, WA Rally

by Mike Vanderboegh:

Behind Enemy Lines. The original draft of my speech in Olympia WA. 13 December 2014.

What you will read below is the original draft of my speech in Olympia this afternoon. At the last minute, I added a preamble for reasons that my later report will make clear. When the YouTube becomes available, I will correct this with the transcript of what I actually said. I would appreciate anyone who has, or locates, the YouTube to please forward me the link when posted.
Welcome to the resistance behind enemy lines. I bring you greetings from your fellow resistance fighters in CT, NY, MD and CO. Look around you. What you see are fellow soldiers of the army of the American Republic in mobilization against a tyranny that the Founders themselves warned us about – a tyranny that their diligent study of history told them would one day come. Despite their best efforts and plans THAT DAY IS HERE.
And so, as they expected, YOU ARE HERE AS WELL in answer to their ghostly call across the centuries.
As I said, you are by no means the first to join this resistance. In CT, NY, MD and CO this fight to defy tyrannical state laws has been quietly raging for over a year and a half now. I know this because I have been behind enemy lines in those states. I have personally broken their laws by smuggling forbidden items. So have my friends. I have met the brave men and women who have faced down their own state governments – who have refused to kowtow to unconstitutional diktats – and who maintain their defiance even when threatened with the coercive power of their local regimes. They have defied those governments and the tyrant wannabes don’t know whether to defecate or go blind.
You know the Founders were as suspicious of unrestrained democracy as they were of absolute monarchy. Both can be tyrannical. Both can be deadly. Both are threats to life and liberty and property. This is why they crafted a constitutional republic. The Founders knew that the mob could be manipulated by cynical elites to rob other citizens of their liberty, their property and their lives – cynical elites, wealthy men, powerful men, with unceasing appetites for more and more power. Sound like anyone you know?
Tyranny as you have now experienced with I-594 can be voted into existence by a majority. This does not make it right. This does not make it legitimate. Indeed it is a violation of natural law and natural rights derived from God. And I refer you to the Declaration of Independence for the finest expression of that truth.
For as a people we have been here before. The faces change. The soothing lies told to mask the tyranny shift, but the conflict is the same – the question is the same and has been since the time of the Founders – DO THE PEOPLE SERVE THE GOVERNMENT? OR DOES THE GOVERNMENT SERVE THE PEOPLE?
This is the question that Bill Gates, Paul Allen and Michael Bloomberg answer one way while we answer the other – there is no negotiating or finessing the answer. It is not possible. It is one or the other. It cannot be both. One side or the other will win the argument AND I SWEAR BY THE FOUNDERS’ REPUBLIC AND THE GREAT GOD JEHOVAH THAT WE WILL WIN THIS FIGHT! WE WILL WIN IT, OR DIE TRYING!
For as the Founders knew, it does not matter if a common criminal breaks into your home to rob, rape and pillage or if a majority of your neighbors vote to do the same thing – the inalienable right to self defense of liberty, property and life remains the same. And let me tell you a home truth that we know down in Alabama -- and I say it to you and I say it to all the Bill Gates, Paul Allens and Michael Bloombergs of the world – WHEN DEMOCRACY TURNS TO TYRANNY, THE ARMED CITIZEN STILL GETS TO VOTE! So be careful what you wish for, for you may get it.
And I am not joking when I say that you are now behind enemy lines. If we are going to tell the truth let us first tell the truth to ourselves. Let us have no illusions. Let us not try to sugarcoat what is obvious to anyone who has eyes to see. The people who crafted I-594 knew exactly what they were doing. Tyrants develop appetites for other people’s liberty and property and lives – and they will manipulate the mob in order that they might eat. Such people are the very definition of what the Founders called “domestic enemies of the Constitution.” So let us be plain. If they are enemies of liberty and they have temporarily succeeded in stealing ours, then they are enemies of the Founders’ Republic and you here in Washington are indeed behind enemy lines. This is no joke. It is as serious as it gets.
Claiming legitimacy of a single election, they will send armed men to your door to work their will upon you – to feed their appetites. This is the iron fist of tyranny that they wrap their velvet lies around. DO IT – THEY COMMAND – OR ELSE. To which I would reply, or else WHAT? For the truth is that the rule of law as crafted by the Founders protects THEM from US far more than it protects US from THEM! And if they destroy that rule of law they will be taught that lesson by the very people that they seek to victimize. They will be taught that lesson by YOU.
But we did not have to be here, at this place, with our backs to the wall and firearms on our shoulders – forced into these awful choices. We are here because of failures -- failures of our own and failures of those entrusted to wage the political fight to secure our liberties from just the sort of threat that I-594 represented. If we are going to tell the truth to the domestic enemies of the Constitution, let us also tell the truth to ourselves and to our allies in this fight.
For years gun rights groups have fought on the same battlefields using the same tactics and consistently, incrementally, sometimes almost invisibly, they have LOST. They lost because they let the enemies of liberty define the battlefield. Yet having been pushed back, again and again, they insist that WE ALL DO THE SAME THING AGAIN AND AGAIN because. . .well, because that is what they do. And if you don’t like the fact that they are losing your rights for you, you simply need to send them more money SO THEY CAN LOSE SOME MORE.
Let us be honest. Petty jealousies, touchy egos and cynical jockeying for position lost the political fight against I-594. The NRA did the minimum required to convince their members that they were doing something without really doing something because they did not want to ally themselves with Alan Gottlieb. For his part, Alan Gottlieb seemed happy to have NRA cede the battlefield to him for he would claim the credit for the win. ONLY THEY DIDN’T WIN. They lost. WE lost. And now we are here because grown men and women acted like jealous children. But it is time to cease acting like children. Because of our own failures it is time to stand up and act like adults. This is not a game with no consequences, and merely played for points. This is deadly serious. And as my friend David Codrea says, it is time for any chair in a bar fight – regardless of who gets the credit afterwards.
And this means working with the very people whose mistakes are responsible for I-594’s win. The fact that we are here today, armed, pointing out that I-594 is trumped -- it is NEGATED -- it is negated, by the Law of Unintended Consequences, does not mean that the political fight is over. Folks, its just getting started. We NEED the NRAs and the Gottliebs of this state to put away their petty jealousies and to fight – really fight – not to make deals that compromise essential liberty. We need them to work together.
But we are here today to remind them and to remind the enemies of liberty in this state THAT IF THEY FAIL THERE ARE ALWAYS SECOND AMENDMENT REMEDIES. And if that scares them, if they are made uncomfortable by that, if they continue to bicker like children and play the “pragmatist game” trying to be liked by the press and “understood” by their enemies – they should understand there is always US – the resistance army of the Founders’ Republic. And like that determined minority of colonists – that original Three Percent who fought the forces of the greatest empire on the planet to a standstill – WE WILL NOT BE INTIMIDATED, WE WILL NOT COMPROMISE, WE WILL NOT BACK DOWN AND WE WILL BE HEARD – ONE WAY OR THE OTHER.
So I say to the deal makers who claim to be on our side, if you want to make a deal you had bloody well make it based on THAT reality. To the NRA and the SAF, to Wayne LaPierre and Alan Gottlieb, to all the leaders of every so-called mainstream gun rights group – and yes, even to the domestic enemies of the Constitution like Bloomberg, Allen and Gates – I say take a good look around you at the reality that one side’s failures and another side’s successes have produced.
And when they have done so I would quote these lines from that most under-appreciated American philosopher Frank Zappa who wrote:
Do you love it?
Do you hate it?
There it is,
The way YOU made it.
For we are the Three Percent. We will not fire the first shot, but if needs be we WILL fire the last. We will not target innocents like the militarized police units that will be dispatched to the doors of our homes in furtherance of I-594. BUT WE WILL ANSWER THE GUILTY.
We are here. We are NOT going away. If that scares you then deal with it. But leave us alone. Ease up out of our faces. Take your hands off our liberty and property and keep them to yourselves as the Founders intended.
Leave us alone. That's all we ask. that's all we DEMAND.
Like the flag says, “Don’t tread on me.” DON’T TREAD ON US!
And to all of you resistance fighters here today, I say emulate your fellow soldiers of liberty in CT and elsewhere who are also behind enemy lines – Be watchful. Be patient. Fight the political fight. Think and act outside the box. Work to prevent violence. But always be prepared, as the Founders were. And remember Blackerby’s advice:
“Trust in the Lord, boys, but keep your powder dry.”

‘I Will Not Comply’ rally draws gun-rights supporters to Olympia [WA]

1,000 gun-rights supporters rally in OlympiaThe Seattle Times

Protesters rallied at the state Capitol in Olympia to denounce an expanded initiative on gun-purchase background checks that voters widely approved last month.

By Joseph O'Sullivan

OLYMPIA — Following a tradition going back to at least the Whiskey Rebellion of the early 1790s, demonstrators gathered here Saturday afternoon at the Capitol to protest the tyranny of what they consider unlawful American government.

But instead of decrying a tax on distilled liquor such as Pennsylvanians did just years after the U.S. Constitution was ratified, demonstrators here at the “I Will Not Comply” rally denounced a law expanding gun-purchase background checks that was approved last month by Washington voters.

more drivel here.

Will update later after Mike Vanderboegh reports in...
