And they have no knowledge of recent history. My premise is that China may have plans to destroy most of America’s citizens and repopulate our cities with loyal Chinese nationals. That may appear to be irresponsible, impossible, and inaccurate, but there is too much at stake to dismiss, denigrate, or deny any possibility out of hand.

These facts are not disputed: China has been working on biological weapons for decades and has the “largest Level 4 Biohazard Lab in Asia, which studies directly into the world’s deadliest pathogens including SARS and coronavirus.” In 2017, experts warned that a virus could escape the labs in Wuhan because of lax containment standards.” Did the deadly virus escape or was it released as the following information seems to indicate?

Be careful, future events may prove you jumped too quickly—in the wrong direction. We need to keep in mind that the Martians did not invade New Jersey in 1938, but Orson Welles did laugh all the way to the bank.

Did China purposefully release the coronavirus upon the world as a means of reducing their population or was it accidentally (and prematurely) released? One of my readers who is a highly placed, highly informed, highly principled, and highly active American wrote me recently saying that one of his Chinese acquaintances (in regular contact with residents in Wuhan) revealed to him that the coronavirus was designed by Chinese scientists as a “biological weapon” that was originally designed to drop over Hong Kong to kill off all the population and to “re-populate with Chinese Communist loyalists (that would exclude Christians.)”

He also said, and later confirmed, that the original whistleblower who exposed the coronavirus, Dr. Li WenLiang “was a Chinese Christian who exposed the plague (a scientist) who mysteriously died.”

By the way, the Chinese source of this accusation is also highly placed, highly informed, highly principled, and highly active and trains leaders in the underground, unregistered church in China. I do not know him but I do know of his impeccable reputation and his dedicated, deserving, and dangerous work with the underground evangelical churches in China.

I have read thousands of books, most of them were historical, philosophical, or theological; many thousands of articles and columns but today I read the most important, shocking, and prophetic speech of my life that supports the premise of this article! In December of 2005, elite officials of the Chinese government met in a large, garish room to hear a world-shaking diatribe by General Chi Haotian, the Vice-Chairman of China’s Military Commission.

His threats are being demonstrated throughout the world as you read this. Moreover, the General is still alive and in good standing in the Chinese government and his shocking speech has not been repudiated by the Communist government. British and American China-watchers, with fingers crossed, have declared the speech a forgery—without any proof.

General Chi began by referring to a national survey taken in China as to how the populace would respond to war. He was not speaking of a “normal” war when a few million die, but many millions die. More than 80% admitted that they would shoot women, children, and prisoners of war. He told the elites that the good times “had come to an end.” He wondered if the people would support the Party if China’s global development necessitated “massive deaths” in enemy countries. The survey gave them the support they wanted although Communist tyrants don’t usually ask the people what they will support.

But this was different, very different.

China is hugely overpopulated and must do something. The keyword is must. They are convinced they have no choice but to involve the whole world in their “global development.” They believe their backs are against the wall and they must push out across the world. After all, they have that right since, according to Chi, they did not originate in Africa (as most modern evolutionists teach) but they arose “independently in the land of China” and have roots going back “millions of years.”

They will expand to other lands whatever the cost in lives—Chinese and others.

Chi reminded them that they were at the peak of civilization during the Tang Dynasty that thrived from 618 to 907 A.D. because of their “natural superiority.” He told them their “natural superiority” would be at its peak again.

He told them their ancestors left them with “the two most essential heritages, which are atheism and great unity,” so based on that foundation they are ready to claim their heritage and conquer the world. The Chinese must look to other nations because the “pressing issue facing us is living space.” He told them that most wars in history were fought because of the need for space.

The General then did an unusual thing: he spoke of how bad things were in China! That seldom happens without a one-way trip to the local re-education camp or a trip to the bang-bang wall. He admitted, “Our resources are in very short supply. The environment is severely polluted, especially that of soil, water, and air. Not only our ability to sustain and develop our race, but even its survival is gravely threatened.…Anybody who has been to Western countries knows that their living space is much better than ours. They have forests alongside the highways, while we hardly have any trees by our streets. Their sky is often blue with white clouds, while our sky is covered with a layer of dark haze. Their tap water is clean enough for drinking, while even our ground water is so polluted that it can’t be drunk without filtering. They have few people in the streets, and two or three people can occupy a small residential building; in contrast our streets are always crawling with people, and several people have to share one room.”

Translation: We gotta do something, fast.

He confessed, “We are now relying on imports to sustain our nation” so Chinese leaders “must lead the Chinese people outside of China.” Snatching some land from Taiwan or some other nation would not be enough but he lifted his eyes and saw Australia, Canada, and America. Those are places where the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) can colonize thereby removing millions from their swarming cities. He asserted, “United States, Canada and Australia have the vast land to serve our need for mass colonization.” He went on to say, the Chinese were “entitled” to the foreign lands.

Chi made it very clear that China does not want to destroy America, only colonize it with millions of their people. So, we don’t have to worry about bombs, only bugs. He admitted, “Only by using special means to ‘clean up’ America will we be able to lead the Chinese people there. Only by using non-destructive weapons that can kill many people will we be able to reserve America for ourselves.” Over half of American citizens must be left alive to serve the advanced Chinese that will live in the former America.

The general was overcome with a dark foreboding: “Biological weapons are unprecedented in their ruthlessness, but if the Americans do not die then the Chinese have to die. If the Chinese people are strapped to the present land, a total societal collapse is bound to take place. …This yellow land has reached the limit of its capacity. One day, who knows how soon it will come, the great collapse will occur any time and more than half of the population will have to go.”

General Chi characterized the Chinese as “revolutionary humanitarians” who did not wish millions of Americans to die but if there is a choice, it should be Americans, not Chinese. He closed saying, “Marxism pointed out that violence is the midwife for the birth of the new society. Therefore war is the midwife for the birth of China’s century.”

And war it is, although biological war. In Wuhan, the birthplace of the coronavirus is located the largest Level 4 Biohazard Lab in Asia. Did the virus escape as has happened before? Was it released by Chinese agents? Was it accidentally released?

Whatever, the virus is loose on the world and is lashing the face of more than 140 nations at this moment and unlike bombs, bullets, and battalions, the coronavirus has no return address that exposes its origination in China.

Keep in mind that the speech may be bogus; however, with China’s history of genocide for centuries and the hatred by China’s leaders as represented by the CCP, the speech could be false at the same time they are actually planning to implement its general proposals!

China does have a biological lab in Wuhan but it is difficult to focus on a snowflake during a blizzard.

How Major Epidemics Have Changed Society Economically, Religiously, Educationally, and Socially! http://donboys.cstnews.com/how-major-epidemics-have-changed-society-economically-religiously-educationally-and-socially http://donboys.cstnews.com/how-major-epidemics-have-changed-society-economically-religiously-educationally-and-socially#respond Thu, 19 Mar 2020 15:36:15 +0000 http://donboys.cstnews.com/?p=2522 One of the most obvious effects that major diseases have had on the world is the loss of population.

In the pestilence of 302 A.D., the plague had a companion–-famine. The people resorted to eating grass, and deaths from famine almost matched those dying from disease. Hungry dogs fought over the bodies of the human dead. Likewise, during the bubonic plague (Black Death) in the early 1300s, the population of Europe had outrun the food supply, and in a few years, the poor were eating cats, dogs, and other animals. Some say they even ate their own children!

Some historians suggest that up to 70% died of plague in affected areas. During this time, it took 200 years for the population of Europe to recover to the level prior to the epidemic.

This loss of population impacted the workforce, but at first, only the more skilled positions. However, when the second and third waves of pestilence swept across Europe, every job was affected. Farmers, servants, tinkers, and others were in short supply. J.L. Cloudsley-Thompson wrote, “some 50,000 persons died in London alone so that all public business was interrupted for two years and the war with France had to be discontinued.”

During this time, inflation skyrocketed. Goods became difficult to obtain and very expensive because so many people had died. Serfs no longer were tied to one master; it became easy to leave one lord and be hired at high wages by another master. It took between 100 and 133 years for Europe to overcome the shock and consequences of such a disastrous loss of workers!

There was a scarcity of all kinds of workers, so those who were still alive were worth more. They tried to unite and strike for higher wages, but the result was the Statute of Labourers of 1351 that kept wages at the 1346 level. It also prohibited workers from leaving their masters. Other laws followed that were just as bad, but the medieval economy experienced a major overhaul after a series of peasant revolts in 1381 and 1449. The plague helped force many economic changes.

The loss of workers caused wages and prices to soar; however, rents plummeted. Historian Gary North wrote, “There was now a labor shortage (at the old terms of labor). Wages shot upward. All over Europe governments passed wage controls. They made it illegal for people to move to new parishes. And all over Europe, this legislation failed.”

As the plague impacted a city, the healthy workers demanded higher wages and as the workers now had more leverage, even the dullest leaders knew serfdom (feudalism) was in its death throes. The serfs were no longer tied to a master for life with no hope of advancement. Of course, the aristocrats resisted, resulting in rebellion concluding with riots in Paris, Florence, and London in the mid and late 1300s.

If the coronavirus becomes more threatening, we can expect people to react in a similar fashion. The airlines, hotels, car rentals, and similar businesses are being decimated as you read this. Others will follow if the virus intensifies. If laws were passed forbidding workers to change or quit jobs or move, would you obey those laws? If you are quarantined, will you resist? If vaccination is required, will you comply? If church attendance is forbidden, will you meet secretly?

No one—politician, physician, preacher, or pundit—can give any guarantee that this threat is temporary or that it will kill millions, but everyone should consider all possibilities. It is only wise to pray, plan, then prepare for the worst. If it is a minor threat to a few thousand people and it fizzles in a month or two, then no big deal. If people keep dying worldwide, you will have been wise to prepare.

When the number of dead reached the breaking point in Europe which was different in various societies and ages, responsible people became irresponsible, calm people became terrified, and the borderline paranoid became dangerous. As fearful people ran from their homes, social and political organizations disappeared, crops were left to rot in the fields, populations were displaced, civil war was fomented, and major shifts in religious thinking occurred.

Religions were changed to a certain degree during and following all major plagues, and one of the most flamboyant results of pestilence was also one of the most appalling—religious excess. With a constant threat of death, it became time to look at one’s self, and as is often true, some people became mentally or emotionally unbalanced. Such were the Flagellants or the Brotherhood of the Cross. Those confused, but sincere people tore off their clothes and beat each other on their naked bodies with scourges, consisting of three lengths of leather with knots. In each knot were iron spikes, sharp as needles. The movement spread throughout Poland, Hungary, Bohemia, Germany, etc.

The extremists went from town to town spreading their fanaticism, and no doubt, the pestilence. Cloudsley-Thompson wrote of the Flagellants: “the gloomy fanaticism which gave rise to them infused a near poison into the despairing minds of the people. Thus, during the fourteenth century, the idea was spread that Jews had been responsible for spreading the pestilence by poisoning wells and infecting the air.” He was saying that a poisoned mind produced poisoned thinking and twisted actions, resulting in hatred of Jews and others. Any sane person could see that Jews were dying at the same rate as others.

Religious society was massively impacted not only by the plague but also by the printing press. When the printing press was invented in 1440, the Bible was printed for the common man and for the first time in a thousand years, people began to be informed and think for themselves. The influence of printing accelerated with the production of books, pamphlets, tracts, and flyers resulting in the Protestant Reformation.

The plague in the 14th century made a lasting impression on the Roman Catholic Church and its critics. Some of Rome’s monasteries were wiped out. Charles Gregg reports that all 150 monks died at the monastery near the French seaport of Marseilles and the same thing happened in Avignon.

A small group of intellectuals ruled the educational world, and most of them, being older, were most vul¬nerable to the plague and were mowed down when the pestilence visited Europe. In fact, four of Europe’s thirty universities disappeared in 1350 as a result of plague which was a major concern in academia during those desperate days of death.

Another consequence of plague was the disappearance of Latin as the medium for writers, and the acceptance of the common language for literature. The reason is simple: there was no choice since the teachers and clerics who taught Latin in the schools, seminaries, and universi¬ties were buried!

Today’s education has already been impacted by all schools closed in Japan, Italy, and twenty other nations. Homeschooling prevalence is exploding because of the epidemic.

An indication of the extent of national trouble during times of disease, destruction, and death can be seen in desperate laws passed all over Europe to alleviate their misery. During Diocletian’s reign (ruled 285-305) farmers were forbidden to leave the farms to take up other jobs and some occupations were made hereditary. That simply meant that a son had to follow his father’s trade or profession. Yes, such laws were tyrannical but politicians don’t think correctly in difficult times, or any time!

Obviously, the bug has caused more damage to nations than battles. Hans Zinsser wrote that the Plague of Justinian in the sixth century was responsible for the demise of the mighty Roman Empire. He suggested that it was “perhaps the most potent single influence—which gave the coup de grâce to the ancient empire.”

The mightiest empire of all time fell because of a bug! So, what are the possibilities for us today with the coronavirus in China, Italy, South Korea—even America?

It’s something to think about—then pray, plan, and prepare.

During the Plague Year in London, People Turned to Religion! http://donboys.cstnews.com/during-the-plague-year-in-london-people-turned-to-religion http://donboys.cstnews.com/during-the-plague-year-in-london-people-turned-to-religion#respond Wed, 11 Mar 2020 20:04:43 +0000 http://donboys.cstnews.com/?p=2517 During the Black Death plague in the 1600s, London officials encouraged religious devotion by days of prayer and fasting and humiliation. Government leaders asked the people to make public confession of sin and to implore the mercy of God to avert the dreadful judgment which hung over their heads. Can you imagine the mayor of a major city taking such a position today? No? Well, you can imagine him leading a gay rights parade, can’t you?

Citizens of many persuasions embraced the occasion by rushing to the churches until one could not get near the church doors. The people were saying, “There’s a time to play and a time to pray, and this is the time to pray.” While many Christians got serious about godly living and became cautious in daily activities, Muslims were relatively unconcerned. Their rigid predestination (some would call fatalism) led them to not take any unusual health precautions, so they put themselves in danger by exposing themselves to plague carriers.

Just this month, the media reported Muslims in Iran licking their shrines showing no fear of the coronavirus.

When fearful, fanatical and faithful citizens arrived at church, the parish minister was often absent. He had, well, felt “called” to the safe countryside where the prosperous and powerful had fled. The preacher in the pulpit was often a Dissenter (Independent Bible preacher) who had been outlawed a few years earlier! To be sure, some of the establishment preachers (Church of England) stayed on the job and died of plague, but many fled to safety. The people flocked to packed churches to hear the preachers preach the Word of God to a confused, concerned, and convicted congregation. Many people professed faith in Christ, and great crowds attended church; but, when the plague took control, the churches emptied because it was not safe to be near any person who might be infected.

Daniel Defoe, author of A Journal of the Plague Year, wrote that many consciences were awakened: “Many hard hearts melted into tears; many a penitent confession was made of crimes long concealed….Many a robbery, many a murder, was then confessed aloud, and nobody surviving [in the home] to record the accounts of it. People might be heard, even into the streets as we passed along, calling upon God for mercy, through Jesus Christ, and saying, ‘I have been a thief,’ ‘I have been an adulterer,’ ‘I have been a murderer,’ and the like, and none durst stop to make the least inquiry into such things or to administer comfort to the poor creatures….Some of the ministers did visit the sick at first and for a little while, but it was not to be done. It would have been present death to have gone into some houses.”

The constant atmosphere of death and constant terror drove men to look honestly at their lives and at their religious experience. This resulted in thousands becoming more sincere and placing more emphasis on their personal relationship with Christ. It also led them away from the established churches in various countries.

Printing had been invented in 1440, and people were now reading the Bible and doing their own thinking for the first time in over a thousand years. They realized that church membership and church attendance did not produce personal satisfaction or personal salvation, contrary to what they had been taught. Following personal conversion, those new converts (but old church members) lived and died as Christians.

Christians believed they had a responsibility to help others as a Christian duty, so during times of famine they shared their food; in times of sorrow they wept with the bereaved; and, in times of pestilence, they nursed the sick and dying. The non-Christians and the pagans took notice of such kindness, and at a time when other institutions were discredited and often dissolved, the Christian churches were more desirable. William McNeill wrote, “Pagans fled from the sick and heartlessly abandoned them.” Christians stayed and served–and died.

After so much despair and death, a dullness set in. It seemed that people lost their fear of death and had really resigned themselves to death. Defoe wrote: “Towards the latter end men’s hearts were hardened, and death was so always before their eyes, that they did not so much concern themselves for the loss of their friends, expecting that themselves should be summoned the next hour.”

They no longer asked people on the street (with whom they had to do business) how they were nor did they feel a need to inform others that they were not infected. The general attitude was: all were going to die. So now, they went back to church and sat in hot, crowded pews without fear of the next person. It didn’t matter. They were all among the walking dead.

Defoe, an outspoken Christian, made a cogent comment in this regard: “Indeed, the zeal which they showed in coming [to church], and the earnestness and affection they showed in their attention to what they heard, made it manifest what a value people would all put upon the worship of God if they thought every day they attended at the church that it would be their last.”

When plague ravaged a city, it was natural for people to think God was visiting them for their sins. We have not seen that reaction to the coronavirus.

Yet.

London Plague in 1665: an Example of World Reaction to Deadly Disease! http://donboys.cstnews.com/london-plague-in-1665-an-example-of-world-reaction-to-deadly-disease http://donboys.cstnews.com/london-plague-in-1665-an-example-of-world-reaction-to-deadly-disease#respond Fri, 06 Mar 2020 16:48:39 +0000 http://donboys.cstnews.com/?p=2514 In the 17th century, London was a dismal, dirty, dangerous, and diseased city. And it was about to get worse, much worse.

When Black Death (bubonic plague) lashed London again in 1665, more than 68,600 died out of a population of 460,000. It all started slowly in London. Just before Christmas, two men died in Drury Lane, with a few additional deaths during the remainder of the winter. The next few months were months of beautiful weather in London, but not for people! As the temperature climbed, so did the death toll.

In our day, the world is being attacked by the coronavirus that started very slowly and has been accelerating across the globe. Hopefully, with modern medicine, the gallop will slow to a trot and will be just another blip on the medical radar screen to be soon forgotten.

But only fools will depend on that.

With the onset of summer in London, the wealthy and well connected began to leave for the countryside. By the last of June, the College of Physicians fled, followed by the politicians and King Charles II in early July. In the last week of August, over 7,500 people died, and the dead carts rolled through the streets each morning picking up those who had died during the night. The dead were taken to the church cemeteries where huge holes had been dug and where the bodies were thrown.

Daniel Defoe (Dissenting Christian and author of Robinson Crusoe and A Journal of the Plague Year) wrote that infected people threw themselves into the pit, and sought to bury themselves, since death was so sure and dying was so painful.

When the Black Death turned London into a graveyard, the impact on business was shattering. People of means fled the city when people started to die “like flies.” Defoe wrote that when it seemed that few would be left alive, “you may be sure from that hour all trade, except such as related to immediate subsistence, was, as it were, at a full stop.”

Those who lost their jobs were workers who manufactured articles that were not essential such as lace-makers, glove-makers, etc. Since no ships went down the river, all those workers were without jobs. All homebuilders were out of work. After all, hundreds of homes were empty since so many people had died.

Panic was usually the immediate reaction to the appearance of pestilence. Defoe records “the richer sort of people, especially the nobility and gentry from the west part of the city, thronged out of town with their families and servants in an unusual manner…nothing was to be seen but wagons and carts with goods, women, servants, children, etc.; coaches filled with people of the better sort, and horsemen attending them, and all hurrying away…”

As always, when fear rules, reason flees and intelligent people do dumb things. The “conners” came out of the closets and set up shop in proximity to the “connies.” The sheep were ready to be sheared! Those people still in the city were “running about to fortune-tellers, cunningmen, and astrologers to know their fortune…and this folly presently made the town swarm with a wicked generation of pretenders to magic….” The quacks had long lines of gullible people at their doors every day. Seems to be no end to people wanting to be deceived.

As always, the people who lost their money were those who could least afford to do so.

Other con artists were more subtle than the astrologers, but not much. Notices were posted throughout the city inviting people to get the sure cure for a sure price. The notices read: “Infallible preventive pills against the plague”; “Never-failing preservatives against the infection”; “Sovereign cordials against the corruptions of the air”; “Exact regulations for the conduct of the body in case of an infection”; “Anti-pestilential pills”; and “Incomparable drink against the plague, never found out before.”

The people spent their hard-earned money for pills, potions, and preservatives, preparing themselves for the plague, not against it. In a later plague, infected folk sought to be cured by bathing in urine collected from people who had eaten cabbage!

Death was on everyone’s mind. The talk among the uninfected was about the grave, dying, sickness, fevers, spots, dead carts, etc. They were not much interested in fun and games. Defoe wrote, “the gaming tables, public dancing rooms, and music-houses…were shut-up and suppressed.…” He added that “a kind of sadness and horror at those things sat upon the countenances even of the common people.”

People were not thinking of games but of the grave.

Weinstein is a Certified Slime-ball But is Not Guilty of Rape! http://donboys.cstnews.com/weinstein-is-a-certified-slime-ball-but-is-not-guilty-of-rape http://donboys.cstnews.com/weinstein-is-a-certified-slime-ball-but-is-not-guilty-of-rape#respond Thu, 27 Feb 2020 15:25:15 +0000 http://donboys.cstnews.com/?p=2508 I have reluctantly come to the conclusion that Harvey Weinstein is a slime-ball but not a rapist and is therefore a victim of a radical feminist mentality run amuck. So, about now, the screaming female feminists can start their phone campaign against me although they usually dial my number late at night. No doubt, they still have my phone number from their last vicious, vile, and vindictive harassment campaign. Their response is more organized than a Baptist church’s telephone prayer chain effort.

Look, I am pleased that Harvey is in jail and has been toppled from his perch. About a hundred women have accused him of sexual misconduct. I am pleased that women are speaking out and revealing sexual predators out there. After all, I have a wife and many daughters, daughter-in-law, granddaughters, and great granddaughters so I want them all safe from rapists. As a legislator, I even tried to get rapists imprisoned for life without possibility of parole or pardon. I tried to require life in prison because the death penalty was not available at the time.

So, I don’t have to prove my bona fides as to my respect and concern for women.

Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance said, “Weinstein is a vicious, serial, sexual predator who used his power to threaten, rape, assault, trick, humiliate and silence his victims.” No doubt that is a correct characterization but that does not prove rape in specific cases. Weinstein was a quid looking for a quo and the “ladies” were a quo looking for a quid.

It’s the oldest profession in the world.

Vance really proved himself a loyal devotee to the screaming feminists by saying, “This is a new day. Rape is rape whether the survivor reports within an hour, within a year or perhaps never. It’s rape despite the complicated dynamics of power and consent after an assault. It’s rape even if there is no physical evidence.”

If that insane, illogical, and illegal concept takes hold nationwide, dating is dead and any man is a fool if he is ever alone with a woman.

What disturbs me is that sane people assume that a woman’s rape accusation demands belief without any proof. Wow, we’re not on a slippery slope; we’ve already landed in a garbage dump.

Isn’t it possible, maybe not probable, but possible that some women make false accusations? Isn’t it possible that some women climb into bed with an influential person to further their career or to get a “sugar daddy”? Isn’t it possible that some women can fornicate with a powerful man, then 20 years later accuse him of rape to fund their 401-ks?

To properly come to a correct conclusion of a rape charge, the word must be defined. Webster says rape is “Sexual intercourse with a woman without her consent (by force, deception, while she is asleep, etc.” Another says rape is “forcible violation of a woman.”

The ancient Jews required rape (that demanded the death penalty) victims to yell and resist; however, the female was always presumed to be innocent unless the circumstances proved otherwise. While her resistance might not be successful, it would call attention to any witnesses and make it very clear to the rapist that the act was unwanted, unwilling, and unlawful.

The Bible wanted to be sure that a malicious woman could not charge an innocent man with a crime that required the death penalty. She must protest; however, it appears that many women can have sex for whatever reason then make a rape charge for financial benefit. I suggest that many modern feminists are not concerned with a man’s innocence or guilt.

One accuser, actress Annabella Sciorra testified that Weinstein forced himself into her apartment and assaulted her. “I was trying to get him off me. I was punching him, kicking him.” But did she scream? After all, it was an apartment. Did she report it to police? It sure sounds like rape to me but biblically it is not rape unless she resisted, screamed, and reported it to authorities.

Miriam Haleyi testified that Harvey attacked her in his own apartment, “Every time I tried to get off the bed he would push me back and hold me down.” But did she scream for help? Surely, she would have received help from high class people in the high end apartment. The report does not reveal that she reported him to police. Why did she not do that? Moreover, she emailed him in 2008, signing off with “Lots of love.” That was to her rapist!

Jessica Mann was in a relationship with Weinstein (read: she was willingly fornicating with him) when he raped her in New York City in March of 2013. They had many sexual experiences including a threesome. He showed up at the lobby of her hotel (where he had a room) then, after taking her to his room, commanded her to undress which she did. She was intimidated and fearful. He allegedly raped her but she did not yell for help nor did she report it to authorities. Why not?

Maybe she kept quiet because as reported by the Daily Mail, she said “they had consensual sex after a ‘long negotiation’ and she did it so he couldn’t kill her acting career.” However, she was shocked when he did a Golder Shower on her. After all, she wasn’t totally without character. After the alleged rape she sent him her new phone numbers five times to stay in contact!

Mann testified that Weinstein raped her again later that year in a Los Angeles hotel room yet according to reporting by USA Today, “She continued to have a friendly email relationship with the fallen mogul for years after, which the defense attempted to use against Mann: showing the court dozens of messages from Mann to Weinstein saying ‘I love you’ and calling him ‘a blessing in my life.’” She told him their sex was best she ever had despite him “urinating on her.”

Wait a minute! A rape victim is in her rapist’s hotel room a few months later! And she tells him he, the rapist, has been a “blessing” in her life. And she loves him! Come, come, only a fool or an unhinged feminist would believe that was rape. Sex, but not rape.

Mann swore that she lied to numerous people when she declared that Weinstein “validated” her, “understands” her, was “nothing but good” to her, and made her “feel so fabulous and beautiful.” That praise of a “rapist” doesn’t sound like a rape victim. Additionally, she spent the next night with a friend so she could celebrate her “rapist’s” birthday the following day!

That sure doesn’t pass the smell test. In fact, the offensive odor would gag a maggot.

Moreover, none of these “ladies” got tested for an STD following their sexual encounter with Harvey the Pig. That is incredibly stupid.

This case is considered a big victory for the #MeToo movement but I think it is a threat to every man in America and to every woman if it is assumed that she never lies.

This case proves to me that all slime-balls don’t always have a beard; some come in skirts and high heels.

How Mankind Has Responded to Massive Plagues! http://donboys.cstnews.com/how-mankind-has-responded-to-massive-plagues http://donboys.cstnews.com/how-mankind-has-responded-to-massive-plagues#respond Thu, 20 Feb 2020 15:31:23 +0000 http://donboys.cstnews.com/?p=2505 Deadly diseases have traditionally been spread by advancing and retreating armies and merchants who sought goods in faraway nations. The most consistent spread of plagues was along the trade routes as merchants sailed to the Far East for exotic goods to satisfy the Europeans’ ever-increasing desire for the “good life.” Travelers, soldiers, and merchants often returned home with an unknown, undesirable, and unpredictable pestilence.

Pestilences, famines, plagues, and wars have an appalling record in mankind’s history having produced enormous problems of public chaos, interruption of labor, economic disaster, revolution, and demise of whole populations. People panic, lose or quit their jobs, live from one day to the next, lose hope for the future, have no confidence in public officials, show no concern for others in the same circumstances, and often turn to crime to sustain themselves.

In 189 A.D., a great plague—thought to be smallpox—attacked the Roman Empire and 2,000 people died each day in Rome. The city was in trouble at that time with internal strife, debased currency, encircling barbarians, and demoralization of the populace. Those complex problems were made infinitely worse by 2,000 deaths daily. The labor supply dwindled, military campaigns were stopped or hindered, day-to-day business operations were paralyzed, and production of food almost ceased. The weakened Empire was grinding to a halt.

History records mankind’s response to disasters, disease, and devastation of war.

The nascent coronavirus is producing the same reaction that all past pestilences and plagues have created throughout history. Of course, this threat may turn out to be a minor problem in the overall scheme of things during the early days of 2020—or it may be a scourge of biblical proportions.

During historical disasters, it was common to have one disaster after another with everyone making a connection of them and ascribing them divine origin. In our day we see the coronavirus epidemic accelerating while locust swarms (the size of cities) attack East Africa, the Middle East and China. Discussion has followed about these being indications of the last days or the end of the world.

Terrified men have reacted the same way in all ages to invisible, imminent, and inevitable plagues and disasters.

History clearly reveals that the first reaction to a threat on your life is always self-preservation, the God-given impulse to preserve the human race. You will fight to overcome the initial fear of the disease or destruction or terrorism and make decisions to guarantee your personal safety. Everything else in life is secondary and delayed so you can concentrate on saving yourself and family.

After one is satisfied that he/she and the family are safe, then the humanitarian and altruistic spirit kicks in with a desire to help members of various social groups: church, school, lodge, workplace, union, club, etc. However, this philanthropic action will almost always cease if there is a threat to personal safety.

Next, there is a normal tendency to identify the reason for the tragedy they are facing with an accompanying desire to alleviate the problem. Ancient, pagan societies naturally thought their god was angry with them; consequently, they decided to sacrifice the daughters of their most elite citizens rather than daughters of the poor. Some doubled the number of victims, thinking that would placate their god.

When men thought they were too civilized to accuse the gods for catastrophic events, they instead blamed Jews, lepers, gypsies, and other minorities!

Finally, one adjusts to the threat as much as physically possible until the plague disappears, the storm subsides, the earthquake stops, or terrorists flee to the hills. If the disaster continued, men thought to be principled revealed their convictions were shallow, not deep, as families were deserted, friendships were severed, and some even resorted to dangerous, depraved, and deadly actions.

At this juncture, men do some very stupid things as they seek to work around or out of the threat. Often they pass laws that are unnecessary, unfair, and unlawful.

The above reactions were observed when malaria lashed the face of Greece.

The malarial parasite—passed to humans by the female mosquito— killed infants, weakened unsuspecting children, forced the freeing of the most productive farmlands, and helped produce Greek citizens who were listless, lazy, and licentious. As a result, the power and glory of ancient Greece became a derisive memory.

It is said that men refused to marry or, if they married, refused to have children. If they had children, they refused to rear them. Men went out of their way to be ostentatious, avaricious, and indolent.

The pandemic plague of Justinian (bubonic plague known as the Black Death) in the sixth century had a sweeping influence and permanently transformed the social fabric of the world. It contributed to the end of Justinian’s reign. The plague, starting in Africa, quickly spread to Egypt and the Mediterranean area. It was preceded by many earthquakes and volcanic eruptions–Vesuvius, in 513, was one–and famines that dropped a blanket of terror and death over Europe, the Near East, and Asia. The worst natural occurrence was the earthquake and fire that destroyed Antioch in A.D. 526, killing almost 300,000 people.

Food production was severely disrupted followed by an eight-year famine. The farming system of the empire was restructured to eventually become the three-field feudal system that impacted all of Europe! Three-field system was a method of farming that represented a significant improvement of food production techniques. Very simply, in the old two-field system “half the land was sown to crop and half left fallow each season; in the three-field system, however, only a third of the land lay fallow.”

This change in food production was a major positive result of the plague.

The social and economic disruption caused by the pandemic marked the end of Roman rule and led to the birth of culturally distinctive societal groups that later formed the nations of medieval Europe.

During this plague of Justinian, crops could not be harvested, traveling and trade were reduced, and food and other items became scarce or unavailable. Many workers died resulting in a massive loss of labor, exacerbating the situation. The remaining workers, realizing their worth had multiplied, demanded much higher wages from major landowners. After all, they were poor but not stupid. Those workers had never had any chance of upward mobility, but were now able to purchase land now that land was available at depressed prices. These unprecedented conditions changed social conditions adding a middle class between serfs and landowners.

This was another sea change in man’s improved social and economic life.

The Black Death galloped through Europe again in the mid-1300s with a similar result of the plague of Justinian. It started in Sicily, jumped to France, Germany, Spain, and England then skipped to Russia, India, and other nations. Millions died and some villages were totally wiped out while some large cities lost 75% of their residents to plague. A third wave smacked Europe again in 1855 after starting in a remote China province, and by 1900 it had reached ports on every continent! Many millions died—again. The total death toll of bubonic plague is 75 million to 200 million.

Most of our politicians and physicians (who are often politicians) are hoping, maybe even praying (!) that the coronavirus won’t explode here. Hoping won’t protect us from a plague and praying will only help if we follow common sense health practices.

Wringing of the hands won’t do much good either.

Most Deadly Pestilence in History Lashed the Face of America a Hundred Years Ago! http://donboys.cstnews.com/most-deadly-pestilence-in-history-lashed-the-face-of-america-a-hundred-years-ago http://donboys.cstnews.com/most-deadly-pestilence-in-history-lashed-the-face-of-america-a-hundred-years-ago#respond Thu, 13 Feb 2020 16:08:49 +0000 http://donboys.cstnews.com/?p=2503 Decaying corpses were stacked all over the burial ground and the streets were littered with the dead. When trains arrived at railroad stations, they had to be cleared of dead and dying passengers. The microscopic killer that lashed the face of America in 1918 and 1919 was Spanish influenza. In the U.S., more than 500,000 people died, mostly young adults!

Recently developed methods of travel permitted the swift distribution of the disease and with the First World War in progress, soldiers were transferred all over the world.

In some American cities all public meetings were illegal: schools, churches, lodges, theaters, etc. Some cities were closed down while others made it illegal to be in public without wearing a mask. There were so many deaths the undertakers could not keep up with the burials and asked volunteers to dig graves. Other cities dug massive holes and buried everyone together without coffins. Morgues were overwhelmed and they stacked bodies like firewood in the corridors.

Since health officials were not much help and knew little about the flu, concerned people tried their grandmas’ prevention remedies such as eating raw onions, keeping a potato in their pocket, or wearing a bag of camphor around their neck.

There are no reports of any success from such practices but the raw onions might have kept the infected at a safe distance.

Some experts think the disease started in the U.S. at Fort Riley, a Kansas army camp, when a cook was infected. Within a week the pestilence was in every state because of the transfer of soldiers. The disease then jumped the Atlantic Ocean to cut down millions and infected about a third of the world!

It marched into India killing 17 million people! Total world deaths are estimated to have been up to 100 million people (3% to 6% of the world population) and it killed 20% of those infected. This pandemic has been called “the greatest medical holocaust in history.” It hit every part of the world.

Laura Spinney wrote in Pale Rider: The Spanish Flu of 1918 and How It Changed the World, it was the “greatest tidal wave of death since the Black Death, perhaps in the whole of human history.”

More people died as a result of the Spanish flu than died in World War I and II–on both sides! During the Crimean War (1854-56), ten times more British soldiers died of dysentery than from all the Russian weapons combined! Moreover, 50 years later, during the Boer War, there were five times more deaths from disease than from enemy fire.

From the dawn of history, mankind has experienced times of sickness, sorrow, and suffering. Often, times of pestilence were mysterious, sudden, and without remedy. Lack of knowledge, superstition, and poor sanitary conditions often contributed to the progress of the pestilence. Men often felt that God was visiting them with plague as punishment for their evil deeds. The disease was usually dreadful, devastating, and deadly and often left as quickly and mysteriously as it appeared.

Now, we face another deadly possibility: the coronavirus that experts think was caused by eating bats and other dirty creatures.

Additionally, there are Islamic terrorists with the ability, equipment, funds, and commitment to wreak destruction, disease, and death on a massive scale. Whatever the threat, it is folly not to be prepared.

Throughout history, people often reacted out of fear and ignorance, and that only compounded the problem, extending the pestilence. They ran from the towns, but found that when they arrived in their safe haven they were met by the same pestilence! Of course, the pestilence had been a traveling companion.

Recent news reports reveal that 5 million citizens fled Wuhan, China just before it was locked down by the government leaving 9 million people to fend for themselves. About 19 Chinese cities have been quarantined and no one is asking how they will get food to stay alive. The Communist government doesn’t really care; after all, they have a population of 1.5 billion. Citizens, thought to be infected, have been arrested and placed in what The New York Times called, “quarantine camps” against their will.

Our present threat could come from the coronavirus, an EMP blast, poisoned water or food supply, or biological agents sprayed over a metropolitan area.

The further one goes back into history, the less reliable are the numbers of dead, and the less knowledge we have of the pestilence that took them; however, it is a fact that mankind has suffered far more from bugs than from battles, more from viruses than villains.

We can pray (atheists can hope) that the coronavirus, like Ebola and other killers, will fizzle and fade and become only a momentary concern until “the really big one” shows up.

However, like the Chinese, most Americans will not be prepared to face it.

Ancient Jewish Health Rules Can Defeat the Coronavirus! http://donboys.cstnews.com/ancient-jewish-health-rules-can-defeat-the-coronavirus http://donboys.cstnews.com/ancient-jewish-health-rules-can-defeat-the-coronavirus#respond Wed, 05 Feb 2020 15:49:49 +0000 http://donboys.cstnews.com/?p=2499 The dreaded coronavirus has been connected to some nasty, even shocking culinary habits of the Chinese—primarily their consumption of snakes and bats. A shocking dietary reported this week in the Daily Mail revealed the barbecuing of a live dog in a Chinese market. Eating cats and dogs is considered perfectly acceptable and delicious by many citizens!

Chinese eat snakes, worms, and water bugs boiled and soaked in vinegar. The wealthier eat live scorpions soaked in strong liquor. Chinese connoisseurs delight in roasted bee larvae and fried silkworm moth larvae after a steaming bowl of ant soup. Others eat large water beetles, stinkbugs, and fly maggots. They raise the larvae of flies in heaps of rotting fish.

Live scorpions are placed on a bed of noodles and gourmets say they taste like potatoes. I’ll take their word for it.

The Chinese mainland has about 100 cockroach farms, and new ones are opening frequently. Even many Chinese were surprised when a million cockroaches broke out of one of those farms! This Great Escape made headlines around the world. Cockroaches are considered a succulent delight and are farmed like chickens in Georgia.

However, health experts reveal that the coronavirus is connected to bats that are considered a delicacy; a viral video has emerged online of a Chinese woman devouring a bat. A second video features a woman eating “bowl of bat soup.” There is little doubt these filthy creatures play a critical role in transmitting the deadly coronavirus.

After a careful review of the habits of ancient Jews, I suggest that Jews were thousands of years ahead of all nations, and a return to their diet and sanitary habits might limit or eliminate many of the world’s diseases.

Some uninformed health officials teach that Egypt was the medical center of the ancient world. This mistake was advanced by the ancient historian Herodotus who recorded that during the days of the Medo-Persian Empire, it was King Darius’ practice “to keep in attendance certain Egyptian doctors, who had a reputation for the highest eminence in their profession.” However, Egypt was not nearly as medically informed as ancient Israel. Egypt was more skillful in building (think, pyramids) than medicine, but Israel was far advanced of all nations in health issues.

An example of Egypt’s medical backwardness is their instructions on removing splinters from the flesh. It consisted of “worm blood, mole, and donkey dung.” However, Doctors S. I. McMillen and David Stern noted that dung “is loaded with tetanus spores” and “a simple splinter often resulted in a gruesome death from lockjaw.”

The ancient Egyptians’ prescription for skin disease was “A hog’s tooth, cat’s dung, dog’s dung, aau-of-samu-oil, berries-of-the-xet-plant, pound and apply as poultice.” (Ancient Egyptian, 1930, p. 92.) Other remedies included dried excrement of a child, hog dung, and a farmer’s urine. One recipe to prevent hair growth included lizard dung and the blood from a cow, donkey, pig, dog, and stag.

It was said that the urine of a faithful wife was effective in the treatment of sore eyes. It seems ancient Egyptians had a thing about dung and urine! Israel was not so backward.

The Encyclopedia Britannica’s conclusion regarding the Bible’s instructions on sanitary and medical practices is very revealing: “The Old Testament is a mine of information on social and personal hygiene. The Jews were indeed pioneers in matters of public health.”

The Jews’ strict regulations regarding sexual activity along with their sanitary regulations plus their treatment of infectious diseases were millennia ahead of all other nations. God gave specific instructions to Israel regarding human waste. They were to relieve themselves away from the living area and to carry a tool for covering excrement! People in third world nations still don’t follow that basic practice!

The Encyclopedia of Medical History declares, “The idea of contagion was foreign to the classic medical tradition and found no place in the voluminous Hippocratic writings. The Old Testament, however, is a rich source for contagionist sentiment, especially in regard to leprosy and venereal disease.” Maybe, just maybe, we should use the Bible to manage our personal lives, not because it is ancient but because it is accurate.

When one looks at the book of Leviticus for treatment of infectious disease he does not see dirty, dangerous, and deadly remedies and ingredients prescribed by Egypt and other ancient civilizations. In fact, the Pentateuch reveals awareness of germs and disease that “modern” medicine did not grasp for 3,500 years after the book was written!

For thousands of years, doctors denied that disease could be transmitted by imperceptible means; but in the 1860s, Louis Pasteur confirmed it in his Germ Theory of Disease. He proved that most infectious diseases were caused by microorganisms originating from outside the body.

Moses gave specific instructions to prevent the spread of disease from dung and dead bodies thousands of years before modern man understood the danger. Moses instructed Jews that diseases such as leprosy were dangerous to everyone and such infected people were to “dwell alone without the camp.” Leviticus 13:45 commands when an infected person came near an uninfected person, the infected person was to “cover his upper lip, and shall cry, ‘unclean! unclean!’” That was not unkind; it saved thousands of innocent lives.

It is obvious that the covering of the upper lip was to keep the infected person from coughing, sneezing, or spitting on non-infected people. On Oct. 9, 2014, it was announced that researchers found that a patient showing no symptoms of the disease “can still transmit a virus like Ebola by air if droplets containing the virus are transmitted to another person by a sneeze or cough.” That is contrary to what major health officials were saying!

It was 1873 that mankind finally realized that leprosy was infectious instead of hereditary but then, Moses and the Israelites knew about it 3,500 years earlier! If a Jew was suspected of being infected he was examined by a priest who confirmed whether or not he was infected. If so, then he was to be removed from the living area until he was healed. That meant quarantine and while it was unpleasant and uncomfortable, it was not unreasonable.

Because of Israel’s advanced knowledge they were the only culture cognizant of infectious diseases with the knowledge of how to deal with them. They were the only group to practice quarantine until the Black Death (bubonic plague) smacked the face of Europe in the 14th century. Millions were dying of plague until church leaders in Vienna thought about the Bible’s plan to stop the spread of infectious disease. Officials required all ships entering Vienna’s port on the Danube to be isolated 40 days to ensure that none of the sailors or passengers was infected. Other cities followed the plan and the Black Death was stopped.

U.S. and world health officials must realize they are health officials not politicians dedicated to making everyone feel good, safe, and fuzzy. We must prohibit anyone from entering the U.S. who has been to any Asian or African nation unless they have been in isolation 21 days. That also includes our southern border where people are entering our nation daily without any physical examination. Even animals have to have shots to enter and kids have to have vaccinations to attend school. You think maybe we could be a little stricter with so many deadly viruses? It is time to act now. If the coronavirus reaches a critical mass, it could become a medical tsunami that will burn itself out after killing millions of people.

Ancient Israel told us how to stop infectious disease: confirm, contain, and confine the disease. Maybe physicians should add the Bible to their medical references.

Dangerous Deadly Diseases Could Debilitate Even Destroy USA! http://donboys.cstnews.com/dangerous-deadly-diseases-could-debilitate-even-destroy-usa http://donboys.cstnews.com/dangerous-deadly-diseases-could-debilitate-even-destroy-usa#respond Wed, 29 Jan 2020 00:37:10 +0000 http://donboys.cstnews.com/?p=2493 Many Chinese cities are experiencing pure panic as the coronavirus has spread to seven other nations. North Korea has shut it borders to all tourists. America has one case in Washington state and another in Chicago.

We are only a short plane ride from Europe and Asia so expect many more. Health experts issued a menacing warning about “a coronavirus pandemic 3 months ago. Their simulation showed it could kill 65 million people.”

That was three months ago yet only now are health and political officials taking action—maybe too little, too late.

The London Daily Mail reported on January 24 that the Chinese were “building a 1,000-bed hospital in FIVE DAYS to deal with the crisis.” The mysterious virus has infected 4500 people in China and killed 81 around the world as  of the last of January. The major cities are closing roads and stopping public transportation. The disturbed Chinese officials have locked down fourteen cities in a desperate effort to restrain the spread of the lethal virus.

As usual, health officials and politicians are underestimating the threat according to the BBC: The number of infectious carriers of the mystery virus “is far greater than official figures suggest, scientists have told the BBC.”

Dr Guan Yi, a leading virologist who helped tackle the SARS epidemic in Asia in 2003 is director of the State Key Laboratory of Emerging Infectious Diseases at the University of Hong Kong. Dr. Yi confessed to Chinese media that the virus “was already uncontrollable in Wuhan (11 million residents) where it started.

Dangerous, debilitating, even deadly diseases have produced massive problems of civil disorder, disruption of labor, economic disaster, insurrection, and demise of whole populations in many nations. America is no exception.

It would be helpful to learn from the plague of Saint Cyprian and not make the same mistakes people of that day made.

In 250 A.D., the Roman Empire was in turbulence. The Goths had just won a major victory and the barbarians were at the gates of Rome. Barbarians originally meant any non-Greek people but eventually came to mean “a brutal, cruel, warlike people.” Then the plague of Saint Cyprian lashed the empire for fifteen years with wave after wave smashing the same areas. Its spread was facilitated by numerous military activities that were going on throughout the provinces. It was a time of terrible tragedy that pushed people to the brink of despair.

The following shocking account by Heinrich Häser, a German medical author, might be a warning of the possible future for present day China and America. He declared that people “crowded into the large cities; only the nearest fields were cultivated; the more distant ones became overgrown, and were used as hunting preserves; farm land had no value, because the population had so diminished that enough grain to feed them could be grown on the limited cultivated areas. Hieronymus wrote that the human race “had been all but destroyed.”

Much of Italy was altered because of this epidemic. Large parts of the landscape were depopulated and left vacant. Swamps appeared and the earth was returning to a primitive state of deserts and forests. Disease was changing the face of the earth in every way. Numerous problems in the palace and nasty bickering on the battlefields defeated the army before battles were fought.

Often, the soldiers served uncompensated because the disease exhausted the wealth of the Empire. Angry, unpaid soldiers bolted into the forests, and took what they wanted from the populous, trying to live off the land. Military insurgences, civil disorders, and domestic wars became common while the Roman Empire continued to crack along its foundations.

Desperate laws are approved during times of disease, disruption, and death as during Diocletian‘s reign (ruled 285-305). It became illegal for farmers to leave the farms to take up other jobs and some occupations were made hereditary. Such laws required a son to follow his father’s trade or profession. Of course, it was tyrannical but when you are poor with no future, the chain doesn’t seem too heavy! It was just one more burden to bear.

It seems Caesar had trouble “keeping them down on the farms” once they had been to the city. Furthermore, after seditious soldiers robbed the merchants and farmers and the tax collectors seized their money and crops (calling it–like today–taxes), the country people looked for other means to make a living. The oppressive laws forcing people to work at certain occupations, were passed because famine and disease had killed so many of the workers leaving crucial trades vacant.

The moving armies, fleeing citizens, and famine all contributed to conditions that were inviting disease. By the fifth century, the once-mighty empire was collapsing as the Vandals, Goths, and other barbarians were beating on the gates of Rome. (Many barbarians were already in the Empire having crossed the Pyrenees into Spain.) The Visigoths, led by Alaric in 410 were the first of the barbarians to sack Rome; however, Alaric‘s hopes of glory faded when he developed symptoms of malaria and soon died. His successful storming of the city signaled the final decline of the Roman Empire in the West, but it had been crumbling for many years from numerous internal problems. The mighty Alaric failed in his conquest and died because of a mosquito bite!

The Vandals appeared at the gates of Rome in 455, entered for a few weeks, and then left for Carthage! Angelo Celli suggested they were driven out by malaria and thousands of infected people threw themselves into the Tiber River to hasten death to escape lingering pain. It was a time of famine, fear, and fighting–and pestilence. At this time, as if Rome was not having enough trouble, faraway Britain experienced a relentless epidemic.

The mighty Roman Empire was convulsing and gasping for breath during the very troubled early fifth century as determined barbarians moved in human waves from east to west and were now ensconced along the Danube River, in Roman territory. Earlier, they had knocked down the gates of Rome and had settled in Italy, Gaul, and Spain. Now they were interested in Britain. Vortigern, Britain‘s leader, had his back to the wall as he faced other barbarians from the north (the Picts and Scots), and the Venerable Bede reported that Vortigern called upon the Saxon chiefs, Hengist and Horsa, for help. Desperate leaders thought it wise to settle barbarians within their empire to furnish troops to aid in the defense of the empire. It worked–for a while.

Bede wrote: “…a severe plague fell upon that corrupt generation [Britain], which soon destroyed such numbers of them, that the living were scarcely sufficient to bury the dead….They consulted what was to be done, and where they should seek assistance to prevent or repel the cruel and frequent incursions of the northern nations; and they all agreed with their King Vortigern to call over to their aid, from the parts beyond the sea, the Saxon nation; which, as the event still more evidently showed, appears to have been done by the appointment of our Lord Himself, that evil might fall upon them for their wicked deeds.”

Apparently Britain‘s fighting forces were greatly depleted by the plague. The Saxons arrived in 449 and acted as mercenary guards for the Britons. The Brits discovered that their “help” was to be another “plague” upon their island. Everything would be different because of the Saxons, who came to help but ended up being a plague. Bede recognized that the pugnacious Saxons were a curse from God because of Britain’s wickedness.

Hans Zinsser, physician and author, concluded: “It requires little exercise of the imagination, therefore, to conclude that the history of the British Isles in all its subsequent developments of race, customs, architecture, and so forth, was in large part determined by an epidemic disease.” Britain would never be the same because of an invisible bug!

America is no exception and could be rendered a drained, defeated, even destroyed nation because of a deadly disease.

Al Sharpton Charging Trump With Lack of Knowledge is Like a Skunk Accusing a Rabbit of Having Bad Breath! http://donboys.cstnews.com/al-sharpton-charging-trump-with-lack-of-knowledge-is-like-a-skunk-accusing-a-rabbit-of-having-bad-breath http://donboys.cstnews.com/al-sharpton-charging-trump-with-lack-of-knowledge-is-like-a-skunk-accusing-a-rabbit-of-having-bad-breath#respond Fri, 24 Jan 2020 02:21:06 +0000 http://donboys.cstnews.com/?p=2490 Al Sharpton said last week on MSNBC that President Trump loses his temper “because he is covering up for his lack of knowledge….Donald Trump always wanted to be in the circles of influence and was always rejected. Always seen as this outer-borough guy whose daddy had money. You know, with Roy Cohn—they were not considered respectable.”

No doubt President Trump has associated himself with disreputable people, been divorced twice and sexually involved with various women. Furthermore, he has made revolting remarks often about disgusting people. Moreover, he is often rude, crude, and lewd, but being castigated by low-life Al Sharpton is outrageous, almost funny.

When one knows some of the highlights, or the lowlights, of Al’s life and listens to him for a few minutes, it is obvious that for him to call Trump ignorant is like a skunk accusing a rabbit of having bad breath.

The Reverend Sharpton is a high priced but lowdown clown who doesn’t seem to know that the foul breath of prejudice is deadly to the soul.

Sharpton’s first marriage was to Marsha Tinsley that lasted about a year. His second marriage was in 1980 to backup singer, Kathy Jordan, whom he met while on a James Brown tour in 1971. They separated in 2004. He has been seen at high profile events with Aisha McShaw, 20 years younger who without any hesitation has claimed to the media that she is Sharpton’s “girlfriend.”

Just Richest, an entertainment publication, declared, “This in itself would not be an issue, as the reverend is at liberty to date owing to his over a decade separation from his wife. But the issue rises from the fact that he is still legally bound to his former wife as their separation is yet to be legalized into a formal divorce.”

Al’s divorce seems to be in question since Heightline reported, “The preacher and his wife got amicably divorced in 2004. It is common knowledge that while still married to Kathy, the Social/political activist had a girlfriend in the person of Aisha McShaw.” Well, if true, it is tragic and no true Baptist preacher would try to defend such sleaze.

Al asked, “Don’t I have a right to date when my marriage has been over for a decade?” Yes, he does but not before he is divorced and there are many news accounts reporting that he is not divorced.

Moreover, his girlfriend dresses like a typical Hollywood floozy and has a daughter from a “previous relationship.” Just the observation of one Baptist about another Baptist.

The Reverend Al was a member of the Church of God that ordained him at age 10. Later he became a Baptist; however, he is a preacher who seldom preaches. When he does preach, it is contemptible preaching. His record reveals him to be a hater of Whites, Jews, and Conservatives of any color.

Al and his buddies at Black Lives Matter and the New Black Panther Party held a protest in defense of anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan and his black racist hate group, the Nation of Islam.

When speaking at New Jersey’s Kean College in 1994, Sharpton said: “White folks was (sic) in the cave while we [blacks] was (sic) building empires … We built pyramids before Donald Trump ever knew what architecture was … we taught philosophy and astrology (sic, astronomy) and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.”

Al neglected to mention that on the black continent of Africa, Blacks were so backward, they had never seen a wheel in the 1800s! Oxford University Professor John Baker, reveals in Race that the wheel was unknown in sub-Saharan Africa even in the mid-1800s. Baker quotes the missionary-explorer David Livingstone’s diaries which tells of thousands of Africans in Linyanti, (now Namibia) to see his “vehicles in motion and thus for the first time to observe the rotation of a wheel.”

Al would have us believe that Blacks developed vast civilizations (even the pyramids) yet less than 200 years ago did not know of the wheel. It seems the wheel was first used in Sumer in present-day Iraq, comprising the southern part of Mesopotamia in about 3500 BC, and spread across Europe, Asia, and North Africa.

The Kean College speech featured Sharpton explaining that America’s founders consisted of “the worst criminals, the rejects they sent from Europe … to the colonies.” “So [if] some cracker,” he continued, “come and tell you ‘Well, my mother and father blood go back to the Mayflower,’ you better hold your pocket. That ain’t nothing to be proud of, that means their forefathers was (sic) crooks.”

Real scholarship, huh? Evidently, Al’s forte is not English or history! What was that about “lack of knowledge?”

Al again showed his hatred for America when he said, “While the rest of the country waves the flag of Americana, we understand we are not part of that. We don’t owe America anything—America owes us.”

The Baptist preacher’s statement on perversion clearly puts him in another denomination. He declared, “As a Baptist minister, I don’t have the right to impose my views on anyone else. If committed gay and lesbian couples want to marry, that is their business; none of us should stand in their way.”

As a Baptist minister he has the right and obligation to preach truth. But it seems the reverend might be planning an international office in Sodom.

When David Dinkins (an African American) was mayor of New York City, Sharpton angrily denounced Dinkins (when the black mayor was unsupportive of Sharpton’s activities) in the following terms: “David Dinkins, you wanna be the only nigger on television, only nigger in the newspaper, only nigger that can talk. Don’t cover them, don’t talk to them, ’cause you got the only nigger problem. ‘Cause you know if a black man stood up next to you, they would see you for the whore that you really are.” He also referred to Dinkins as “that nigger whore turning tricks in City Hall.”

Sharpton, like many other Blacks, has no problem using the forbidden word. “There are white niggers. I’ve seen a lot of white niggers in my time.” But, don’t you be so careless.

Sharpton was involved in an incredibly sleazy episode that almost destroyed white, former Assistant District Attorney Steven Pagones who was accused by Tawana Brawley in 1987 of raping her. Al jumped to her defense (since she was black) and was another opportunity to “play to the gallery.” Sharpton was found guilty of defamation of the prosecutor by a jury in a New York court. Moreover, Sharpton has refused to accept responsibility and expresses no regret for defaming Mr. Pagones.

With such a deplorable résumé, it is no surprise that he is powerfully ridiculed on the one side and weakly defended on the other side. Liberals cringe during Al’s television show as he stumbles through hollow, hateful, and humiliating diatribe. Thinking people laugh.

A 2013 Zogby Analytics poll found that one quarter of Blacks said that Al Sharpton speaks for them. Radicals like Sharpton have taken “civil” out of civilization and put “cult” into culture. He speaks with forked tongue so it might be wise for Blacks to be more careful whom they have speak for them.

With Al Sharpton’s dismal, disgraceful, and dubious life, he has the gall to criticize Trump for anything. Maybe this an example of the pot calling the kettle black.

But then, that might appear to be racist.
