COVID-19 pop culture foreshadowings

There are some who maintain that our puppeteers, aka The Powers That Be (TPTB), engage in “predictive programming” of the masses. According to one definition:

Predictive programming is a subtle form of psychological conditioning provided by the media to acquaint the public with planned societal changes to be implemented by TPTB.
If and when these changes are put through, the public will already be familiarized with them and will accept them as ‘natural progressions’, as Alan Watt (*) calls it; thus lessening any possible public resistance and commotion.
Predictive programming therefore may be considered as a veiled form of preemptive mass manipulation or mind control, courtesy of our puppet masters.

If you go to this link, you’ll find some examples of predictive programming in movies. Below are links to FOTM posts on predictive programming:

The COVID-19 Wuhan virus pandemic also has foreshadowings.

(1) 2003 TV Show “Dead Zone”

Eerily, the “Dead Zone” TV show from 2003 was about a “mysterious flu virus” that “originated from China” which causes high fever and respiratory distress, and talks about quarantine/lockdown, wearing protective masks, and the anti-malarial drug Hydroxychloroquine as the cure. That’s way too many “coincidences” for my taste.

(2) 2012 EU Comic Book

Then there is that 2012 European Union (EU) comic book on a virus pandemic and lockdown.

Steve Watson of Summit News alerts us to the “strange” comic book that “eerily predicted almost exactly what has unfolded with the Covid-19 global pandemic”. A globalist’s wet dream come true, the book ends with unelected globalist bureaucrats saving the day and the planet.

Authored by J. D. Morvan and Huang Jia Wei, the comic book Infected was a production of the Directorate-General of the European Commission’s International Cooperation and Development, and is described by the EU as: “While the story may be fictional, it is nevertheless intertwined with some factual information.”

Curiously, the graphic novel was not intended for widespread public consumption. Only a few hundred of Infected were published, distributed to institutions within the EU.

Here are the similarities of Infected the comic book and the COVID-19 pademic:

  • Infected features the transmission of a novel virus from animals to humans in a crowded wet market in China, just as we originally were told the COVID-19 coronavirus had come from bats sold in a wet market in Wuhan, China.
  • The graphic novel depicts scientists inside a lab in China experimenting with deadly pathogens, just as a U.S. government report (and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as well) says the COVID-19 virus most likely was produced in a lab in Wuhan, which is China’s equivalent of the CDC, and “accidentally” got out.

  • Infection suggests that air travel would exacerbate the spread of the virus. One character in the graphic novel says: “You’d have headed back to Europe, the US, Latin America, or Australia as planned via an international airport.”
  • Infection depicts a global health organisation’s failure to act quickly enough to stop a pandemic, just as the World Health Organization (WHO) is criticized for its slow action on COVID-19 and for its bias in favor of China.
  • As with the COVID-19 pandemic, the EU comic book also depicts draconian safety measures against the virus, including social distancing, which make everyday life “totally unbearable”.
  • In the comic book, globalists are lauded for helping develop and distribute a vaccine to the world, just as Bill Gates is applauded for funding production of the seven most promising ideas for a COVID-19 vaccine.
  • Infection concludes with an EU Parliament hearing in which Brussels pushes for more integrated European cooperation on global health matters, mirroring a real life initiative known as ‘One health’.

Lastly, while not predictive programming, the idea of a social-distancing lockdown originated in a 15-year-old girl’s 2006 high school science project.

As reported by Ollie Reed Jr. for Albuquerque Journal, in 2006, Laura Glass, with some guidance from her dad Robert J. Glass, a complex-systems analyst with Sandia National Laboratories, devised a computer simulation that showed how people – family members, co-workers, students in schools, people in social situations – interact. What she discovered was that school kids came in contact with about 140 people a day, more than any other group. Based on that finding, her computer program showed that in a hypothetical town of 10,000 people, 5,000 would be infected during a pandemic if no measures were taken, but only 500 would be infected if the schools were closed, i.e., locked down.

Robert Glass incorporated his daughter’s lockdown idea in a paper, titled “Targeted Social Distancing Designs for Pandemic Influenza,” for Bush Administration’s Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff for a Cabinet-level tabletop exercise at the White House. The question posed was what could be done to avoid disaster if there was no vaccine and limited antiviral supplies.

Glass’s paper set out a model for forced separation of people in a pandemic, and called for what amounts to a totalitarian lockdown.

Robert Glass told Albuquerque Journal: “I thought, ‘That’s exactly what Laura is working on.’ Her model was right there on the computer. I realized that was something important. I discussed it with her. She said, ‘Why don’t you close the schools?’ I was taking advice from my (high school) daughter.”

Fall of the West: Christian graffiti in Russia, while NY art museum hosts exhibit glorifying abortion

When the Communist Party came to power in 1917, Christianity was suppressed in the officially-atheist Soviet Union.

But after the collapse of communism, the people of Russia have brought back Christianity in the form of the traditional Russian Orthodox Church.

In Moscow and elsewhere, unlike the ugly rubbish graffiti that blight American cities, Russian graffiti artists like Aleksandr Tsypkov and Anton Belikov are spray-painting bridges and underpasses with beautiful Christian icons because they believe that everyone, not just church-goers, should be able to see religious art. (Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty)

For a video of the Russian graffiti from which I took the above screenshots, go here.

Meanwhile, the Arsenal Contemporary Art museum in Brooklyn, New York, is hosting an “art” exhibit titled “Abortion is Normal,” with proceeds going to Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider.

As reported by LifeSiteNews:

Proceeds from the event will go to Planned Parenthood’s 2020 campaign spending as well as “voter education and advocacy” efforts….

The Abortion Is Normal website, a Bloomberg highlight video, and a Daily Beast report display and describe several examples of the event’s “art,” much of which is sexual in nature. There are nude photographs and paintings, figures bearing “Thank God for Abortion” shirts, paintings of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and various simple displays of rudimentary written slogans and buzzwords, like “Choice” and “Dear Judge Kavanaugh, if you don’t like abortions don’t get one.”

Below is one of the “art” exhibits:

To sign a petition telling Arsenal museum that abortion in NOT normal, go here. The signature call in 20,000. As of this morning, 15,125 people have signed the petition.

Christmas is God’s answer to Solstice

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. – Isaiah 9:2

Let the Son shine into your heart

Solstice is the darkest part of the year in the northern hemisphere. The days become troublingly short, with night falling before afternoon is over. For those with “seasonal affective disorder” it can be a time of dangerous heavy depression.

The Church chose the period near Solstice to replace the pagan bacchanal celebrations with holy gatherings to honor the Nativity of Jesus Christ

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
– John 1:1-5

Curator claims Barbra Streisand tribute museum is part of the #MeToo era

According to the NY Post, there’s a museum exhibit devoted to Barbara Streisand that showcases “the way she was, is and perhaps always will be.”

It’s called “Hello Gorgeous,” and features costumes, photos, videos and more at the Bernard Museum of Judaica at Temple Emanu-el.

According to museum curator Warren Klein, “It’s the perfect exhibition for the #metoo era,” who calls Streisand “a strong, driven woman” — one who refused to change her surname, or her nose, to suit the norm. (There are rumors of Streisand’s numerous plastic surgeries, of which she denies.)

Streisand did not contribute any items to the exhibit. Read about the “Hello Gorgeous” museum display here.

I wonder if the exhibit will feature any of the following photos?

PURE EVIL: Drag queen “performs” self abortion at bar

This is a post I’ve debated whether or not to do for several reasons: 1) I DESPISE drag queens and their mocking of real women; 2) the subject matter of this video is PURE EVIL and 3) progressive’s complete DISRESPECT for human life is the lowest of the low.

But here we go…

This video is not for the faint of heart and is DEFINITELY NSFW.

A drag queen by the name of “Blair Back” thought a “self abortion” would make for a great Halloween performance.

“Blair” is 24 years old and described this “costume” as “zombie cannibal.”

Blair describes HIS performance as such: “The inspiration for this performance was from a lot of horror movies where a woman got pregnant by and alien, demon, monster, et cetera and they have to cut the baby out of her before it kills her from the inside.”

Here’s the performance:

Blair can justify HIS performance however HE wishes. It doesn’t change the fact that HE is promoting evil intentions.

Another reason to DESPISE Halloween and its satanic followers.

South Dakota parade has a float of Obama and Hillary Clinton in jail

Some folks in South Dakota, have their panties all twisted in a wad because of a parade float featuring two people wearing Obama and Hillary masks inside a cage, and the word “Guantanamo” spray-painted on a sign above.

Another man wearing a President Trump mask stood outside the cage next to a makeshift wall with the words “Build the Wall.” The trailer was ringed with numerous American flags, and featured Trump Make America Great Again flags flying from the rear gate.

Ryan Martin reports for KSFY, June 21, 2019, that the parade celebrated Highmore’s 50th annual Settler’s Day.

Jeff Damer, the creator of the float, said that although “I had to think about it with the mask of Obama, coming out as racist, I just wanted to put it out there, it was just my view that I feel that they should be charged, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.”

Not surprisingly, float has stirred up a lot of talk on social media.

South Dakota blogger Kevin Woster finds the float very offensive and “objectionable”. He and Damer spoke about the float and its intended message, and are pleased they have been able to find some common ground.

Damer said Woster “was civil the whole time, he tried to moderate his page, cussing, insults, this and that, he deleted a bunch of some really hateful things.” For his part, Woster said the two men have “stayed in contact, and I think we got to talking pretty good, and I think we’re making some progress.”

Highmore Mayor Vikki Day says city officials have received a lot of messages from people who think she shouldn’t have allowed the float, but “My stance, and the city’s stance is that every person has a right to the first amendment, to express his or her speech, and the expressions of it, we do not regulate that.”

Jeff Damer told KSFY that his biggest regret is shedding a bad light on the town that he loves.

Victor Skinner of The American Mirror points out this isn’t the first time that “liberal” politicians are lampooned in hometown parades. In 2016, for example:

  • Aurora, Indiana resident Frank Linkemeyer crafted a parade float for the Aurora Farmers Fair which depicted Hillary Clinton in an electric chair with Donald Trump flipping the switch. Linkemeyer told the Indianapolis Star: “Laughter is the best medicine and this country needs more laughter – and the people that are offended by it, I’m sorry. Don’t come to the parade next time.”
  • A float in the Tri-State Parade in Amarillo, Texas, by a group called Stars and Bars, featured Obama caged in a makeshift jail with Hillary Clinton, along with a man wearing a Make America Great Again flag as a cape and American flags streaming from the tow truck. Locals said the float, accompanied by the Confederate Riders of America, drew the ire of the NAACP and “a lot of people in the black and Hispanic community.” (KXXV)
  • Don Christy, 73, drove a golf cart display at the 2016 Sheridan, Indiana Independence Day Parade, which featured a stuffed “African lion” on the front and Obama on a toilet in the back. Above them were the words “Royal Flush” and “Lying African.” The golf cart was lined with jail bars, with Christy behind the wheel, wearing a prison jumpsuit and blond wig behind the wheel – a reference to Hillary Clinton. Christy told the Star his float was aimed at pushing back on a culture of political correctness: “I’ not a Democrat. I’m not a Republican. I’m a patriot. It’s time to start changing our country back a little bit. I have my right to say things. It’s that what the Fourth of July’s about? Freedom. I apologize to anyone I offended, which would be a total liberal.”

The Face of the Man on the Shroud

One of the mysteries of the New Testament is that there are no descriptions of what Jesus Christ looks like. Nothing about how tall He is, the color of His hair or of His eyes, or . . . .

None.

But being the sensory creatures as God made us, we can’t help but wonder what Jesus looks like.

How we thirst for and yearn to see His face. Psalm 27:8 gives voice to humanity’s sorrowful yearning:

“Your face, Lord, do I seek. Do not hide your face from me.”

Our crie de coeur is given eloquent expression by St. Anselm (1033-1109) in Proslogium:

But if thou hast found him, why is it that thou dost not feel thou hast found him? Why, O Lord, our God, does not my soul feel thee, if it hath found thee? [My soul] strains to see thee more . . . but it sees that it cannot see farther, because of its own darkness . . . . Everywhere thou art wholly present, and I see thee not . . . and therefore my soul still walks in its darkness and wretchedness. For it looks, and does not see thy beauty. It hearkens, and does not hear thy harmony. It smells, and does not perceive thy fragrance. It tastes, and does not recognize thy sweetness. It touches, and does not feel thy pleasantness.

Artists, like Jon McNaughton, have used their imagination to fashion their images of Jesus.

In 2015, the scientific unit of the police force in Rome, Italy, used computer software that’s normally used to age an individual and reversed the process to generate the angelic face of what the man whose face and body are imprinted onto the Shroud of Turin would look like as a 12-year-old boy.

In 2018, Dr. Giulio Fanti, Professor of Mechanical and Thermal Measurements at the University of Padua, created a 3D carbon copy from meticulous measurements of the imprinted image of the Man on the Shroud. Master sculptor Sergio Rodella then made a statue in plaster from the 3D carbon copy.

Professor Fanti said:

“Christian tradition believes that the image that is seen on the Shroud is that of the crucified Jesus. And now science is of this opinion too. For years, using the most sophisticated 3D technologies, we have studied  the image left by the body on the sheet. And the statue is the final result.

This statue is a life-size, three-dimensional representation of the Man of the Shroud, based on the millimetric measurements obtained from the shroud in which the body of Christ was wrapped after the crucifixion.

On the Shroud I counted 370 scourge wounds, without taking into consideration the lateral ones, which are not imprinted into the Shroud because it enveloped only the front and back of the body. We can therefore hypothesize Jesus suffered a total of at least 600 scourges. Moreover, the three-dimensional reconstruction has allowed us to reconstruct that at the time of death, the man of the Shroud has slumped to the right because His right shoulder was dislocated in such a severe way as to damage the nerves.

According to our studies, Jesus was a man of extraordinary beauty (“bellezza straordinaria”). Long-limbed, but very robust; almost six feet tall, while the average height of the time was around 5′ 5″; with a regal and majestic expression.

We therefore believe that we finally have an accurate picture of what Jesus was like on this earth. From now on, it will no longer be possible to portray His image without taking this work into account.”

Here’s the face of the Man on the Shroud:

But in the end, it doesn’t really matter what we think Jesus looks like because when we finally see Him face to face, we will know it’s Him. To quote McNaughton:

“Someday when I actually meet the Savior, I’m not going to recognize Him because of how long His hair is or the color of His eyes, or whether He has a short beard or long beard, or how dark His skin is. I’m gonna recognize Him because of the way I feel, standing in the presence of the Savior.”

Are you paid unfairly because you’re a woman? Jennifer Newsom wants you to complain

Jennifer Newsom wants to lift up everyone…

Perpetual victimhood is not a good look…

From Sacramento Bee: If you’re a woman who’s not being paid as much as your male colleagues, Jennifer Siebel Newsom wants you to complain.

In the first big initiative she’s undertaken since her husband Gavin Newsom became governor, Siebel Newsom on Monday launched a campaign to narrow the gender pay gap in California by educating employers on how to pay workers fairly and telling employees how to report companies that break the rules.

Siebel Newsom says uplifting women and girls is her priority as California’s first partner, the title she uses instead of first lady.

“When we lift up women, we lift up everyone,” she said. “It’s time to close the gap.”

How liberals “lift up women”

She’s leading the Equal Pay California campaign alongside Time’s Up, a group formed amid the #MeToo movement to advocate gender equality in the workplace, and the California Commission on the Status of Women and Girls. It’s aimed at promoting compliance with a state law that took effect in 2016 that strengthened California’s equal pay protections.

California has the smallest gender pay gap in the country, according to the American Association of University Women, but women in the state still make roughly 89 cents for every dollar men make.

Despite California’s progress, Siebel Newsom and others involved with the campaign say the state needs to do more to close the gap.

California has had equal pay protections for decades, but the laws weren’t strong enough, said state Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, a Santa Barbara Democrat who wrote the new law that took effect in 2016.

It says employers can’t pay female workers less than male colleagues who do “substantially similar” work, a provision aimed at helping women prove discrimination even if their male counterparts have different job titles. It also bans retaliation against employees for discussing their wages and puts the burden on employers to show they pay men and women equitably.

“Paying women less than men for substantially similar work is a form of wage theft,” California Labor Secretary Julie Su said. “Passing good laws is not the finish line. It puts us at the start of a great race and enforcement is how we win.”

The new campaign is promoting a website with resources for companies, such as guidelines on how to set equitable wages. For employees, it includes information on how to report employers that don’t pay equitable wages to the state, or file a lawsuit against them.

Siebel Newsom, a documentary filmmaker with a long history of advocating feminist causes, announced the campaign at an event at the Capitol on Monday morning, where she also endorsed a paid family leave bill in the Legislature.

How liberals “lift up women”

She touted commitments from 13 California businesses, including Apple and AT&T, to conduct their own internal reviews of their pay practices.

“I believe that there are incredible companies in this state who want to do good and want to do better,” Siebel Newsom said. “Now they have the tools, the resources and no excuses.”
