Blame It On Corona

Blame It On Corona

 

Have you seen the reports of dairy farmers dumping milk, egg producing farms smashing eggs and vegetable farms plowing under their fields all because of COVID-19? It sounds unbelievable because when you go into the grocery store eggs and poultry are limited per purchase, pork and beef are as well and milk and vegetable prices are rather low for consumer purchases. That is going on not only here in the US but in Canada as well. So what’s going on? Who’s behind it?

 

Ranchers are being told to prevent cows from producing milk, reduce pig herds and more because of the Coronavirus is making it harder for farmers to sell their products. I’m no expert and neither are others who raise the question WHY?

 

Have people suddenly begun eating less? – I think not.

 

Are restaurants no longer preparing and serving meals? – Everywhere we have meals to go.

 

What about land prices? Is there a soon to be flood of small farms and ranches going under? If so who is standing in the wings waiting to snatch up these soon to be available properties?

 

What’s happening in Mexico, South America, Europe, and Asia and throughout the civilized world?

 

First we have the Corona affecting virtually the entire world. Economies have shut down with few exceptions. In the US we have a nation that has been shut down and now state after state are starting to open up only to be faced with a lack of necessary food products. I’m not an alarmist but ALARM, ALARM, ALARM bells are going off in my head!

 

A recent report gave reference to a high percentage of stock shares of major meat processing plants are owned by China.

 

Let that sink in!

 

Americans have been pushed into a corner and soon it will be time to come out swinging. Am I ready? Are you ready?

 

China has leveraged itself into the European Union’s 5G market and that threatens our national security. The Defense Department is prepares to move Americas military intelligence assets away from the 5G foreign influence. We have 5G all over the place here at in the US, so does that mean that OUR 5G networks tie into those of China? Will pulling the plug on 5G result in a tremendous sucking sound as the internet goes down the vortex of a black hole?

 

We maybe should seriously begin looking at China and the origins of the SARS-Cov-2 (COVID-19) after all it all started with the Wuhan Virus, right? – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Whose Water Are You Carrying?

Whose Water Are You Carrying?

 

I think it’s safe to say that our buckets may be different but our purpose is exactly the same. We are each created in the image of God and our purpose is to tell of his goodness and his love for each of us. Like it or not we are either on God’s team or we are not. There is no middle ground. No straddling the fence. If we are not for God we are against him. Mankind is the only species where success is defined by what WE do; the toys WE have or the things WE give priority. In the wild the survival of the fittest, strongest and most cunning is nature’s way of thinning out the herd and predatory beasts are top of the food chain.

 

It is basic human nature to outsmart the other guy. You only live once. Everyone knows the one who has the most toys wins. Bigger, better, faster, smarter are never enough. We want freedom to do what we want to do without anyone or anything getting in our way. It’s perfectly fine to step over (if not on) anyone to get the prize, the means justify the end.

 

At the end of our days here on earth we are often remembered by family and friends as a kind person, loving to our family, a good friend. In their minds we are in heaven looking down as their guardian angel. Like cream rises to the top, rocks sink in water and one bad apple spoils the whole box we are each appointed once to die and then the judgement. What we do matters!

 

So before you go nuclear and put on your political suit of armor just remember that no matter your station in life, where you live or what you have accumulated you are responsible and accountable for your actions, words and deeds. There will come a time when you will stand before the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords and have to answer an all-important question, “What did you do for the Kingdom of God?” Are you spreading gossip, lies or the truth? Do you lift up or tear down? Are you making a difference in the lives of those around you?

 

Whose water do YOU carry? – I am the Real Truckmaster!

The Muddy Waters

The Muddy Waters

 

A few years ago I was driving from a small town in Idaho toward the Oregon border. As I got nearer I noticed the Snake River covered with a heavy fog that made driving on I-84 completely unsafe. My immediate concern was not the freeway speed of 75 MPH or the fact that the highway had rapidly disappeared. I was worried about other drivers coming up behind me as I slowed to a safer speed or approaching traffic crossing the divider and crossing into my lane. I had made that trip so many years ago from Caldwell, Idaho over to Ontario, Oregon but never in a heavy fog like that early morning as I went to the Toyota dealership for an oil change and to check on my aunt Anita. That was then and today as I look at what’s happening with the Coronavirus causing worldwide economies to come crashing down just like the creeping fog I think it is more than just a coincidence.

 

We are experiencing a global meltdown over a virus nobody can see or knows what happened to let it out. Is it a natural bug or a manmade virus and was it accidentally or intentionally released upon the world we live in? Biblical scholars refer to the book of Revelations and what is written about the end times. Non-believers simply refuse to believe it is anything to worry about as they scurry around panic buying toilet paper, cleaning supplies and looking for their local government to provide them with germ free facemasks.

 

I recently watched a cable news program’s investigative report on this very thing and what they uncovered is beyond believable. There are several nations across the globe that conduct biochemical experiments in highly secure facilities that are Level 3 & 4 Biolabs dealing with the deadliest viruses known to mankind. These are top secret facilities and access is tightly controlled. The high level experiments are primarily for scientific purposes but can be for biological warfare purposes.

 

It’s unclear when these tests began, but in 2014 during the Obama Administration the White House threatened to defund these types of projects, but relented and testing continued. One such test was in a Biolab in North Carolina in 2015 where the virus of Horseshoe Bats (native to Wuhan, China) were used in what was called “Gain of Function” testing designed to enhance exposure and transmission rates making the virus more deadly. What was also interesting was who the participants were and where they were from. Two of the participants were from Wuhan, China. One was Zheng-Li Shi a well-known Chinese scientist from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, a Biolab located in Wuhan, known for maintaining more than 1,500 of the deadliest live viruses on the planet.

 

What is interesting is that in December 2019 Chinese nationals began returning from Wuhan, China to their jobs in Europe, Asia and the United States about the time the first case of what the Chinese labeled 2019-nCoV. This is a SARS-COV-2 coronavirus affectionately dubbed the Wuhan Virus, but renamed COVID-19.

 

As the investigative report showed on 7 February 2020 a Chinese Doctor Li Wenliang first noticed something peculiar and sounded the alarm in Wuhan. He was promptly detained, became infected and died of the 2019-nCoV. On 12 March 2020 Chinese Property Mogul Ren Zhiqiang complained about the CCP’s handling of the coronavirus and he too simply disappeared. There was another Doctor Ai Fen who disappeared under mysterious circumstances without so much as an explanation by the Communist Chinese Party. In fact a massive disinformation campaign has been launched in an attempt to shift the blame on US military personnel who participated in the World Military Competition during October 2019 in the city of Wuhan, China. When I wrote my blog “Assessing the Wuhan Virus” people became afraid and lashed out because I had written my critique. I stand by that assessment and today ask is it coincidence or consequence?

 

We now know that many infected Chinese personnel left Wuhan, China and went out into the world spreading this unknown virus where ever they went. Many travelled on direct flights to neighboring countries to an unsuspecting world. The World Health Organization (WHO) acted negligent and complacent to inform the world of this health hazard. That ultimately led to many more infections and deaths worldwide.

 

Rather than raise questions concerning the WHO handling of this pandemic, once President Trump announced suspending funding until an investigation is conducted, many American politicians have chosen sides with China and WHO.

 

Nobody has raised questions like why have 174 different nations all chosen to shut down, issue stay-at-home orders to their citizens, close arbitrary businesses that are the livelihood of many ordinary citizens while allowing those deemed essential to stay open? What exactly makes one essential? Is it booze, pot, abortions, convenience stores, fast food eateries, grocery stores and supermarkets? And Who made the determination for all 174 countries? Something smells like dirty rotten socks. It stinks like the approaching fog of the New World Order or a pre-One World Government.

 

In America there is a saying that diapers and politicians need to be changed and for the same reason as changing dirty socks. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

What Have You Got to Prove?

What have you got to prove?

 

I’m reminded of old man Walton who started his grocery store and worked to make it the best. He most likely didn’t tell anyone he was a grocer. Probably didn’t make a habit of pointing out where he lived, what car he drove or where he bought his clothes. How many of us can make those claims?

 

Years passed by and old man Walton capitalized on his success by selling franchises of his grocery model. I don’t think anyone was busting down his door to get in on the ground floor either. I haven’t read the history of his success, but I read somewhere that he lived in the same house, drove the same car and wore the same style of clothing up until his death, and probably never telling anyone his little grocery store became the very successful Wal-Mart grocery chain. He knew who he was and that was enough. He lived and died a humble man with nothing to prove.

 

Don’t you just hate it when you meet someone and they have to tell you how successful and rich they are? They live in the upscale part of town. Drive expensive cars and have a collection of toys that others only dream of. They’ve hunted big game in Alaska and Africa; Climbed to the peak of the Himalayas; Fished the mighty lakes and rivers in the Rocky Mountains; Rode their mountain bike thousands of miles in their quest to fill that bucket list, yet they are still here bragging on their successes in life.

 

Their professional life is the talk of the town as they hob-knob with societal royalty, the doctors and lawyers and the really well to do. Oh and not to forget they are as religious as the church building they frequent on occasion. Compared to them my life is a wreck.

 

I have a home (house to live in and a car to drive) a family (my children are all grown) and live nearby with children and grandchildren of their own. I have friends and still keep in touch. There are family and friends in different states and countries and we connect online much more than over the phone or vacation visits. I have what I need to survive comfortably for a while.

 

More importantly I have a loving God who supplies my every need and is waiting for me to join him one day.

 

Joshua 24:15 – But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”

 

I am content and have nothing left to prove. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

God Has Our Backs and We Got This

3-31-2020

 

God Has Our Backs and We Got This

 

What we know is the SARS-CoV-2 was first detected in Wuhan, China in November 2019 and was almost immediately renamed COVID-19.  It is known by several other names: Coronavirus, Chinese Virus, Wuhan Virus, CCPvirus) and literally swept across the globe at breakneck speed driving people into full panic mode with a fear of the unknown. The US and other nations began restricting travel from affected areas and preparing measures to detect, delay and prevent the spread of this unknown pandemic.

 

As nations began mobilizing medical facilities and professionals it became woefully obvious how unprepared they were across the board as personal protection equipment (PPE) supplies became exhausted.

 

Nations began organizing health assessment and mobilization teams, medical teams and hospitals began preparing for the expected worst case scenarios. Drastic changes had to be made. While naysayers began proclaiming extraordinarily high exposure and death rates, states, cities and communities across the US began drastic measures – stay at home orders, social distancing, sanitation, hygiene and hand washing became critical to slow the spread.

 

Business as usual ended beginning in March 2020 as fast food and restaurants became delivery or pickup orders only. Panic buying of basic necessities caused even more panic as hoard buying seemed to become the new normal. Toiletry, paper and hand sanitizer supplies were exhausted even before they could be restocked.

 

Schools closed and implemented online learning curriculum for those now home bound. Non-essential businesses shuttered their doors. Employees no longer had jobs to go to and yet mortgages, bills and food and medicines still had to be purchased.

 

Churches and places of worship across America were closed to prevent the spread of COVID-19, but not shuttered as many adapted to online Live Broadcasts that can be seen by larger audiences around the world. Rather than being prevented from worship, Christians were simply deployed to spread the gospel and tell the Good News that Jesus Christ is Lord and that God Loves You and me even when we don’t deserve it.

 

In America many remember the shock, then the resolve of 9/11/2001 when life as we know it changed forever. Was it happening again? Was this a terrorist attack on a global scale? Entire economies were on the verge of collapsing. The stock markets were adversely affected and still we are facing an uncertain future. The enemy is silent yet deadly. What are we to do? Is this the end of the world?

 

Rather than sit around fretting about what might happen President Donald J. Trump has declared unashamedly “We will get through this. We will win!” As he set new guidelines and initiated bold steps there have been many who criticize and belittle the efforts of the Trump administration. Rather than getting on board and presenting a calm reassuring presence, members of the Congress of the United States have set themselves up against this President.

 

The President called for everyone to do their part and the titans of industry, large and small have answered the call. In the spirit of 1776, the Civil War, the Alamo, and two World Wars Americans have come together as one, not to depend upon government, but private citizens and American ingenuity to solve even the most complex problems associated with stopping the spread of COVID-19.

 

I saw this list being circulated on Facebook and found it needed some tweaking to more accurately reflect the scope of what is happening across the nation.

  • Carnival Cruise line told Trump, “We can match those big Navy hospital ships with some fully staffed cruise ships.”
  • GM & Ford said, “Hold our cars, watch this; we can make ventilators where we were making cars by next week.”
  • Construction companies said, “Here are some masks for the medical staff & doctors.”
  • Major businesses have retooled their factories to produce Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • Restaurants & schools said, “We’ve got kitchens & staff; we can feed the kids.”
  • NHL & NBA players are writing checks to pay the arena staff during postponed seasons.
  • Churches are holding online services & taking care of their members & community.
  • Women & children are making homemade masks & handing out snacks to truckers.
  • Breweries are converted to making sanitizer for first responders.
  • We thought we couldn’t live without baseball, hockey, & NASCAR, or going to beaches, restaurants, or a bar… Instead, we’re ordering take-out to help keep businesses alive.

What they didn’t count on was America saying, “Hold my beer – watch this.”

I think a Japanese Admiral in the middle of the Pacific said it best in 1941: “I think we have awakened a sleeping giant.”

Give us a little more time & we will be doing much better! Stop listening to the hysterical media.

We are one nation, under God – Author unknown.

God’s got us, & #WeGotThis!

#UnitedWeStand #BeAnAmericanForAChange

 

The initial call by President Trump mobilizing former and retired medical professionals from the Inactive Ready Reserve and Retired Reserve was answered by more than 9,000 volunteers – in a heartbeat!

 

BAM!

 

We serve a living and a loving God who would that nobody perishes.

Jesus did not come to condemn the world, but through him the World might be saved.

If you believe in your heart and confess your sins with your mouth – you too can become Sons and Daughters of the Most High King – Jesus who is the Christ! Even Now! – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Has God Ever Made You Laugh?

50574083_362232294591377_2568031740224339968_n

3-22-2020

 

Has God Every Made You Laugh?

 

How many times have you asked God for something? How many times has he answered? The bible tells us that we have not because we ask not. Sometimes we ask but really don’t believe God hears us. We know that God really does hear us and because we ask, we have the faith to believe that he will answer.

 

In my life alone I can’t count the times that God has answered my prayers. What I have learned is that when God does answer he may do it EXACTLY as we ask, not necessarily as we wanted either. Let me give an example. A few years ago I took it upon myself to go to my local church on Saturday morning to walk the premises and pick up trash. It’s easy enough see something – do something. Instead of saying somebody ought to do something I figured I’m somebody and I can do something, so I did.

 

One Saturday morning I arrived at the church and realized that I had nothing to put the trash in – big dilemma right? Not a problem. Talking more to myself I said something like this, “God I need a bag to put trash in because I forgot to bring one.” Now you might expect the hand of God to magically appear with a 30 gallon plastic trash bag or maybe a supermarket shopping bag, but you’d be wrong. As I stepped out of my vehicle I noticed it was a bit windy as something blew up against my shoe. It was a sandwich bag. I laughed and said to God, “Very funny!”

 

I took the bag and began putting cigarette butts, pencil stubs or anything that as an army sergeant I used to say during police call – if it ain’t nailed down pick it up. Man there was a lot of stuff that morning. I filled up the sandwich bag rather quickly and more. I must have made several trips back to the dumpster before I was satisfied that the ground around God’s house was ready for Sunday morning service. I’m often reminded of my encounter with God and the life lesson to be specific when asking God and in case you’re still wondering God does have a sense of humor – after all he created you, me and everything. God is great – All the Time! – I am the Real Truckmaster!

The Mandate – Isaiah 45

3-20-2020

 

The Mandate – Isaiah 45

 

In 2015 the world as we know it was about to be turned upside-down and politics would be exposed by a most unlikely person, a man who has everything the world could offer. That man was Donald J. Trump traditionally supporting democrats he defied all logic by choosing to run for the office of President of the United States as a republican candidate.

 

I too was taken by surprise and feared this was simply a stunt to draw a larger audience to “The Apprentice” and I could not see this having anything to do with what God was about to do with the nation or throughout the world.

 

Christians throughout the nation and around the world have prayerfully and earnestly sought the Lord to change the course of the country. We have read and believed the stories of the bible that demonstrate the sinful nature of man and the faithfulness of Almighty God. The book of Revelations warns us that in the latter days there will be wars and petulance and earthquakes in diverse places, but there is no mention of America by name.

 

2 Chronicles 7:14 “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

 

But would God do it again in modern day America? I have no doubt that when we ask, God will exercise his will not as we want, but according to his perfect will. What was true back in “biblical times” is still true today. God will deliver us and only he knows the plans he has for us or the manner/people he will use to accomplish his purpose.

 

We ask believing and because God is faithful he sometimes surprises us in ways we can’t imagine or didn’t expect. We see from biblical scriptures that we are unique and wonderfully made. God has a plan for each person and it is evidenced by our birth. Even the lives of the unborn terminated through abortion have a purpose. What the so called experts fail to realize is that the world does not revolve around them. They are not the one who causes the sun to rise or the moon to shine or even the rain to fall.

 

What we have seen since the 2015 announcement at Trump Tower can only be the forces of evil rising up against the hand of God. Whether or not you believe that is irrelevant because God will prevail. When God calls we can respond or simply ignore the call. We often tell ourselves somebody ought to do something. In the case of Donald J. Trump he did not shy away, but responded by seeking confirmation and support through Christian pastors and leaders.

 

Those who do not know him were quick to attack his character, his family and as they do today his supporters. They underestimated his resolve and determination. They thought they could drive him away with their non-stop attacks. They could not know, nor would they believe he was to be “the wrecking ball to the spirit of political correctness” and his mandate is to stop evil.

 

Even today Christians and non-Christians ridicule, mock and continue to attack President Trump simply because of what they see on the news or on the internet and read in the print media. They attack his supporters and think that will drive them away from him. Some have said he is not Christian enough or Presidential enough or savvy in the ways of international negotiations. Trump has been blamed for everything in the world that goes wrong, yet failed to be credited when credit is justly due.

 

Running on campaign slogans of build the wall and drain the swamp few knew these were more than just slogans. American had been gripped in the political vice of correctness that suppressed the very spirit of God in our nation. Politicians have taken the verbiage of the Constitution, its meaning and purpose and used it for their own political gain and monetary enrichment at the expense of American citizens. Many who enter the halls of Congress become entwined in the “system” that the will of the people is totally lost to the lure and greed of politics.

 

During 2015 and well before the campaign season had begun a word from God declared that Donald J. Trump would be an Isaiah 45 President. He would not to be a preacher-president but a warrior-president in the likeness of King Cyrus.

 

Isaiah 45 English Standard Version (ESV)

 

Cyrus, God’s Instrument

45 Thus says the Lord to his anointed, to Cyrus,
whose right hand I have grasped,
to subdue nations before him
and to loose the belts of kings,
to open doors before him
that gates may not be closed:
“I will go before you
and level the exalted places,[a]
I will break in pieces the doors of bronze
and cut through the bars of iron,
I will give you the treasures of darkness
and the hoards in secret places,
that you may know that it is I, the Lord,
the God of Israel, who call you by your name.
For the sake of my servant Jacob,
and Israel my chosen,
I call you by your name,
I name you, though you do not know me.
I am the Lord, and there is no other,
besides me there is no God;
I equip you, though you do not know me,
that people may know, from the rising of the sun
and from the west, that there is none besides me;
I am the Lord, and there is no other.
I form light and create darkness;
I make well-being and create calamity;
I am the Lord, who does all these things.

“Shower, O heavens, from above,
and let the clouds rain down righteousness;
let the earth open, that salvation and righteousness may bear fruit;
let the earth cause them both to sprout;
I the Lord have created it.

“Woe to him who strives with him who formed him,
a pot among earthen pots!
Does the clay say to him who forms it, ‘What are you making?’
or ‘Your work has no handles’?
10 Woe to him who says to a father, ‘What are you begetting?’
or to a woman, ‘With what are you in labor?’”

11 Thus says the Lord,
the Holy One of Israel, and the one who formed him:
“Ask me of things to come;
will you command me concerning my children and the work of my hands?[b]
12 I made the earth
and created man on it;
it was my hands that stretched out the heavens,
and I commanded all their host.
13 I have stirred him up in righteousness,
and I will make all his ways level;
he shall build my city
and set my exiles free,
not for price or reward,”
says the Lord of hosts.

 

The Lord, the Only Savior

14 Thus says the Lord:
“The wealth of Egypt and the merchandise of Cush,
and the Sabeans, men of stature,
shall come over to you and be yours;
they shall follow you;
they shall come over in chains and bow down to you.
They will plead with you, saying:
‘Surely God is in you, and there is no other,
no god besides him.’”

15 Truly, you are a God who hides himself,
O God of Israel, the Savior.
16 All of them are put to shame and confounded;
the makers of idols go in confusion together.
17 But Israel is saved by the Lord
with everlasting salvation;
you shall not be put to shame or confounded
to all eternity.

18 For thus says the Lord,
who created the heavens
(he is God!),
who formed the earth and made it
(he established it;
he did not create it empty,
he formed it to be inhabited!):
“I am the Lord, and there is no other.
19 I did not speak in secret,
in a land of darkness;
I did not say to the offspring of Jacob,
‘Seek me in vain.’[c]
I the Lord speak the truth;
I declare what is right.

20 “Assemble yourselves and come;
draw near together,
you survivors of the nations!
They have no knowledge
who carry about their wooden idols,
and keep on praying to a god
that cannot save.
21 Declare and present your case;
let them take counsel together!
Who told this long ago?
Who declared it of old?
Was it not I, the Lord?
And there is no other god besides me,
a righteous God and a Savior;
there is none besides me.

22 “Turn to me and be saved,
all the ends of the earth!
For I am God, and there is no other.
23 By myself I have sworn;
from my mouth has gone out in righteousness
a word that shall not return:
‘To me every knee shall bow,
every tongue shall swear allegiance.’[d]

24 “Only in the Lord, it shall be said of me,
are righteousness and strength;
to him shall come and be ashamed
all who were incensed against him.
25 In the Lord all the offspring of Israel
shall be justified and shall glory.”

 

God saw the potential deep within the heart of the man while men saw only the past to condemn the present. When someone is on a mission ordained by Almighty God there is nothing under heaven or on earth that can stop him until that mission is completed. I caution the people and/or media that create, initiate or spread false witness in order to gain the favor of men for you will reap what you sow. Have you anything to say, let it be kind and uplifting or exercise your right to remain silent. Words bring life or death. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
