MARK FARNER: ‘I’m Your Captain’ (Closer To Home – 1970) 2011 LIVE

From: Songfacts — Mark Farner (ex-Grand Funk)

Songfacts: How did you come up with that song? It seems so unusual – so long and it changes gears in the middle.

Farner: Initially the song came to me after I said my prayers one night and I put a P.S. on the end of my prayers. I asked God to give me a song that would touch the hearts of people that the Creator wanted to get to. I got up at 3 o’clock in the morning – I’m always getting up at different times of the night and writing things down. A lot of them are not songs but this happened to be one.

I got up and I wrote it, and as I’m writing it, I’m between the state of subconscious and conscious. I’ve got one foot in dreamland and my pen is writing these words down. It didn’t make a whole lot of sense. It was kind of weird, I thought, as I was writing it. I didn’t sit there on the edge of the bed and read it over and over, I just wrote it down, and when I got to the end of it, I just folded it over and put it on the nightstand. There it was.

Well, in the morning, I got up, I was drinking my coffee, I was looking at the horses out in the pasture, and I got my feet kicked up. I thought, I’ll grab my flattop here. I had an acoustic George Washburn, a resonant guitar from my kitchen – everybody would grab it when they came here. I started playing. Wow, that’s nice, what the heck is that? Then I made that C chord. I made a mistake. I was going for the G and it was a little short and I hit the C. And I looked down because that chord spoke to me in such a way. I’ve never heard that come out, that inversion of the C. I thought, Wow, that’s a cool chord. Then I thought maybe with those words in the other room, maybe that’s a song, so I grabbed the legal pad and laid it down on the table next to my coffee and I just started strumming. “Everybody…” And it just started coming out. …

1:11:20 Al Shire Tory: It was not a united front. The majority were never in favor of the war of independence. There was 15-20% for staying with England, and the patriots never achieved over 50%.

The American Revolution, Part I: The Secrets Buried at Lexington Green — Who Really Fired “The Shot Heard Round The World”?

James Perloff

Lexington Minuteman

(Note: For those who would prefer to read this post in hard copy, it is Chapter Thirteen of my book Thirteen Pieces of the Jigsaw.)

FOREWORD: I do not expect this two-part article to be very popular among American patriots, many of whom are my dear friends. They are among the core of America’s best citizens; men and women who fight to protect constitutional liberties from the police state, and to preserve U.S. national sovereignty from the tyranny of world government.

The following article raises questions about the American Revolution, which many patriots regard as the foundation of their beliefs. It can be dangerous to shake a good man’s foundation – even if the foundation is flawed – because it might cause him to question his worldview, and weaken his resolve. However, no historical event should be held so sacred as to be immune to examination. Our country is in too much trouble to make truth secondary.

Many patriots say the solution to our problems is to return to the “principles of the Founding Fathers.” I strongly agree with this view in part; I certainly believe in limited government and the Bill of Rights, and that these fundamental doctrines have been eroded to the point of national peril. However, I also believe that much of the trouble actually traces to America’s founding. Despite ubiquitous descriptions of the Founding Fathers as Christians, revolutions are – with rare exceptions – contrary to Biblical doctrine. In Part II, we will explore this issue, and the revolution itself in depth. Right now, we focus on the flashpoint that ignited the war between Britain and her American colonies.

Daniel and I worked so hard trying to send out a message prior to the invasion of Iraq…. Then thousands and thousands of people died, and finally it became known as the ‘stupid war.'”

I’m a bit disappointed in Rand Paul for not pursuing this more; though, I’m a big fan, and know he’s juggling a lot. He and Tulsi visited Syria together. He knows.

Great to see Tulsi still speaking out! So sad that most Americans, especially ‘Christian’ Zionists don’t care about the truth, being deceived into being reverse-Christian warmongers.

The Pledge of Allegiance Was Written to Sell Magazines

We need to do a rethink: idolatry and ‘The Pledge. What happens when the nation disobeys God?

It’s dangerous to pledge allegiance to any manmade political power, since their dictates often become reverse-Christian, such as our post-9/11 regime-change wars and much of what the CIA does covertly.

Children should be taught to pledge allegiance to God instead, Who will always lead us into doing what is right.

Hitler replaced religious youth programs with the Hitler Youth (like the Boy Scouts, but on steroids), to teach children to obey him without question. Most German Lutherans then did obey Hitler instead of the Holy Spirit, when instead of defending Germany on German soil, Hitler immorally abused Germans’ loyalty by invading foreign countries unnecessarily, turning the world against Germany, which got Germany destroyed, exactly what Satan wanted. And this includes his invasions of Poland and Russia, which true history proves.

Hitler locked up the main Catholic leader in the Dachau prison who refused to shut down the Catholic youth program.

War should be last resort only:

Skousen: Attack Plans for Iran Building — Trump has never been able to through the deep state’s lies

Attack Plans for Iran Building.

Trump has never been able to see through the lies of the intelligence agency about Deep State foreign aggression (except in the Russia Interference hoax). He didn’t see it when they goaded him into attacking Syria and he bought the lie that Iranian General Soleimani was the “biggest sponsor of terror.” Now he has sent off a fleet of vessels to attack Iran. They have just been joined by the USS Georgia, a guided-missile class submarine with its 154 Tomahawk missiles and dry dock for SEALs. There was a rocket attack yesterday on the massive embassy compound in Baghdad (out of which the Deep State runs all their terrorist attacks) and US intel has told Trump Iran is to blame because it was on the anniversary of Trump’s killing of Soleimani. Hezbollah thinks Trump is crazy as the threat looms within the last days of President Trump.

1:22:50 Babylon destroyed in one hour
1:23:13 “Over and over again in Revelation 18, the Bible repeats the fact that Babylon will be destroyed in one hour. And it will be destroyed with fire…. A nuclear attack fits this description perfectly, and it would happen immediately…, within one hour’s time.” – Anderson

The Destruction of Jerusalem: The Last Days According to Jesus with R.C. Sproul

A friend of mine, Andrew Kelly posted this on Facebook saying:

This is the center piece of history which the contemporary church refuses to grasp let alone teach.


I believe I am telling the truth.

Ones world view must incorporate this defining event of which Jesus predicted. Once understood it changes history, our world view, exposes the lies we have been taught and reveals the obvious war of vengeance between cursed antichrist Jew and ‘Roman’.

Towards the end of this video you will hear stunning words describing other worldly events, heavenly phenomena of other dimensions which were recorded during this centerpiece of History which is the true template of which humanity should interpret, investigate, and intertwine all other events in order to recognize the ‘every single time’ characters and what should be obvious to a spiritually minded truther.

This will deeply encourage the Christian and cause others to think more deeply than they ever have. …

I commented:

Very interesting! I never thought of a second departure of God, for God left the Holy of Holies in the temple when Jesus died on the cross and the veil was rent. And then he sent the Holy Spirit.

I wonder what the end of America will look like, the stories that US citizens who survived will tell, after we get EMPd and nuked by Russia and China, as we’re focused on the coming extreme civil unrest. What goes around comes around.

Skousen: Trump has fallen into Israel’s trap to bomb Iran

World Affairs Brief, December 4, 2020 Commentary and Insights on a Troubled World.

Iran Strike Coming:

Israel assassinated Mohsen Fakhrizadeh-Mahabadi, Iran’s top nuclear scientist with remote controlled bombs and machine guns. The LA Times described the sophisticated operation. Iran has threatened to retaliate, knowing that this is just what Israel and the US neocons want. Trump has fallen into their trap by ordering the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier group to Iranian waters, making it the second task force in the area. That is a sure sign war is coming with Iran soon, and it is not going to be a walk in the park like other Middle East interventions. Iran has thousands of sophisticated missiles and armaments.


Netanyahu’s 7 Nuclear Deceptions — 1992: IRAN nuclear “within three to five years” • 1995: “three to five years” • 1996: “time is running out” • 2009: “probably one or two years away” / “has the capability now” • 2012: “within a year” || 2002: IRAQ now operating “centrifuges the size of washing machines”

“Greater Israel”: The Zionist Plan for the Middle East — DISSOLUTION of all existing Arab states: Iraq, Lebanon, Egypt, Syria, Iran, Turkey, Somalia, Pakistan, Egypt, Sudan & Libya — USING US, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and NATO

Our post-9/11 were/are all immoral and reverse-Christian, planned by the globalists before 9/11 to regime-change Israel’s neighbors for The Greater Israel Project. Some have been carried out covertly through proxies. Russia stopped Syria’s regime change, Israel and the US using ISIS, but they’re greatly weakened by what we did there:

Trump’s John Bolton the warmonger tweet proves Trump kept us out of wars

Bossy “truthers” like Jana Ben-Nun hated Trump so vehemently that they persuaded many to not to vote for him. They seem to have ZERO appreciation for how Trump kept us out of wars that Biden will now march us into, if the election isn’t reversed.

Being so openly anti-Trump during this election year may be almost treasonous. I’m very disappointed in Jana — got so many to hate Trump — while Trump launched no new wars.

“Meanwhile, Biden/Harris and Co. brag about having Bolton’s support and the endorsement of six other Neo-Cons who served Bush/Cheney.

Steven Ben-Nun w/ Adam Green: The ‘peace’ accord is a war accord • Israel using Russia and China to bring US down • Israel used US to destroy their neighbors

MY NOTES – Steven Ben-Nun said:

22:40 “Through violence, the Jewish state is trying to make it look like these prophecies (which many have been fulfilled…), they’re trying to make it look as if they are coming to pass, but in fact they are not.”

23:30 “This is really not a ‘peace accord.’ It’s a war accord. They’re using this ‘peace initiative, or this Abrahamic accord in order to prepare their coalition to go against Iran.”

33:30 “The sad thing is that when it comes to the United States, they [Israel] is done with America. I was told that straight up by people I know in Israel. China will be the next superpower, and they [Israel] will work with China. And they will use Russia to bring down this nation down, along with China.”

54 Truth about Syria: Turkey brought in the Sarin gas to falsely blame Assad for gassing his own people.

Christians and Jews say Damascus must be destroyed according to Bible prophecy, but Isaiah 17 actually says God holds Christians and Jews responsible for the destruction of Damascus, because they armed a faction to destroy Syria.

59:00 GREATER ISRAEL PROJECT: “They [Israel] had to go a long way to instigate all America’s wars on the Middle East to create this scenario. As we know, General Wesley Clark said seven nations would be taken down in five years. Of course, the timeline is off, but not the nations. The United States has played a heavy role in bringing down these nations.”

Gets interesting, starting at 17:45

(DISGUSTING) Trump: I Wanted To Assassinate Syria’s Bashar Assad

Assad is not a terrorist, and did not gas his own people. Syria was a beautiful place with freedom of religion. The CIA and Mossad were/are the terrorists in Syria, trying to use ISIS to regime change Syria for the Greater Israel Project, which Russia largely stopped.

Trump: I Wanted To Assassinate Syria’s Bashar Assad

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he wanted to assassinate Syrian dictator Bashar Assad, contradicting his own past denials that he had ever considered killing Assad and weakening his claim to be an anti-war president.

“I would have rather taken him out. I had him all set,” Trump told ”Fox & Friends” in response to a question about Assad. Trump blamed his former defense secretary, retired Marine Gen. Jim Mattis, for holding him back: “Mattis didn’t want to do it. Mattis was a highly overrated general and I let him go.” …

Trump considered the assassination in April 2017, after the first major Syrian chemical weapons attack of his presidency, journalist Bob Woodward revealed in a book published in 2018. “Let’s kill the fucking lot of them,” Trump said, per Woodward. He ultimately settled on a limited airstrike against Assad’s forces ― the first U.S. intervention of that kind in the Syrian civil war.

Sanders tells NY Times he’d consider a preemptive strike against Iran or North Korea even for just a weapons test

Sanders tells New York Times he would consider a preemptive strike against Iran or North Korea

By Jacob Crosse and Barry Grey
14 February 2020

Bernie Sanders has won the popular vote in both the New Hampshire and Iowa presidential primary contests in considerable part by presenting himself as an opponent of war. Following the criminal assassination of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani last month, Sanders was the most vocal of the Democratic presidential aspirants in criticizing Trump’s action. His poll numbers have risen in tandem with his stepped-up anti-war rhetoric.

Israel Admits Arming and Funding anti-Assad Syrian Rebels

Reported also in Israel’s newspapers:

Times of Israel 1/14/19

IDF chief finally acknowledges that Israel supplied weapons to Syrian rebels

 …for years Israeli officials repeatedly declared that the country was not getting involved in Syria’s internal fighting — now evidently a lie, in light of Eisenkot’s remarks.

Haaretz 2/3/19

Opinion // Israel Just Admitted Arming anti-Assad Syrian Rebels. Big Mistake

For years, Israel has religiously adhered to the official party line that the country’s policy was non-intervention, and this has now been exposed as a lie. Such a loss of public credibility may significantly inhibit its abilities to conduct influence operations in the future.

From USA’s ZeroHedge 1/14/19

What is clear, and now finally settled for the historical record, is that for years Israeli concealed its “hidden hand” in the proxy war while feigning merely “humanitarian aid” — something now fully admitted by Israel’s top military commander. In other words the humanitarian smokescreen was cover for a full-on covert war on Damascus, as we and many other independent outlets have reported many times, and for years.

Israel’s Top Commander Finally Spills Secrets Of “Invisible War” In Syria

For years Israel denied allegations that it had a role in funding and weaponizing the anti-Assad insurgency in Syria, and more often military officials responded “no comment” even when confronted with overwhelming evidence of Israeli weapons documented in al-Qaeda linked insurgents’ hands, but this all changed in a new British Sunday Times interview with outgoing Israeli army commander Gadi Eisenkot, who has finally confirmed the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) supplied weapons to rebels across the border “for self-defense,” and further perhaps more stunningly, has admitted to long waging an “invisible war in Syria” that involved “thousands of attacks”.

The interview constitutes the first time that any current top Israeli military or government official has fully acknowledged sending anything beyond “humanitarian supplies,” such as medical aid to Syrian militants seeking to topple the Assad government; and yet it still appears the country’s military chief is slow playing the confirmation, only acknowledging the IDF provided “light weapons” — even after years of reporting has definitively uncovered an expansive Israeli program to arm dozens of insurgent groups and pay their salaries, including known affiliates of al-Qaeda in Syria.

J.R. Nyquist: General Chi’s Nasty Wuhan Soup: A Recipe for BioWar?

Posted on January 30, 2020

In a secret speech given to high-level Party cadres nearly two decades ago, Chinese Defense Minister, Gen. Chi Haotian, explained a long- range plan for ensuring a Chinese national renaissance.

According to Gen. Chi, China’s overpopulation problem and environmental degradation will eventually result in social collapse and civil war. General Chi estimated that “more than 800 million” Chinese would die in such a collapse. Therefore, the Chinese Communist Party has no policy alternative. Either America is “cleaned up” by biological attacks, or China suffers national catastrophe.

Israel: Watch an Anti-Drone Laser Literally Fry a Bunch of Hobby Drones from Miles Away

Israeli defense technology company Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd recently released a demo of their special “Drone Dome” counter-drone defense system. A car-mounted anti-drone solution that can fry unwelcome drones from miles away using a high-powered laser beam.

The demo above, released just a few days ago, is pretty intense. So-called “hostile” drones are detected, tracked, targeted, and then systematically fried.

That’s not a hyperbole. In several cases you can see the sparks fly off the DJI Phantom drones used in this demonstration….
