Sunday Respite – ‘Rhythm of the Forrest’

Wishing everyone a great Sunday. Today I chose Diane Arkenstone “Rhythm of the Forrest”

Sunday Respite – Honoring the Knights Templar

This is the week we honor the Knights Templar. In 2007 the Vatican issued a proclamation declaring the Templars innocent of their alleged crimes. This after finding “misplaced” documents of their trials.

How different our world would be if this act had not been perpetrated against the Templars, the defenders of Christ. It is worthy of us to honor them each October. May they rise again.

The enemy is at the gate, they lay siege to our walls, yet no one answers the call to arms!! Where are the Knights, why are they not suited up for the great battle? Are they asleep? Who will slay this beast if not the Templars? The angels are sounding the trumpets, are the sounds of them muffled? This enemy is familiar, we have fought them before, in histories past, come brethren, take up your cross, and fight for God, and the Saints, the beast has reared his ugly head once again!!

The Knights Templar set to an instrumental entitled ‘Lament’
The track is from Saracen’s album Vox in Excelso,a concept album involving The Knights Templar

On Friday, October 13th, 1307, King Philip IV of France, in league with Pope Clement V ordered  all Templars to be rounded up and thrown in prison. The Knights were accused of numerous crimes including heresy and treason. For two hundred years the Knights Templar had been the most dominant force in Christendom.

Philip IV borrowed enormous sums of money to finance a war with England. A poor king and an even worse military commander, Philip was easily defeated. He saw a way of eliminating his huge debt. On that fateful day of Friday, October 13, 1307 he ordered all Templars arrested and their property seized. The Grandmaster of the order, Jacques DeMolay was thrown in prison along with several other high-ranking members of the order.

Their ‘trial’ was a farce. The Templars were charged with heresy, worshiping false idols and other crimes against the church. Many of them were tortured until they ‘confessed’ to their crimes. Refusing to capitulate, Jacques DeMolay would not confess and Philip ordered him burned at the stak

Sunday Respite ‘Ladies who Lunch’

Ah, the political class. The rising bourgeois. The proletariat now chafes at the yoke placed on them by the elites. Populism is scaring the you know what out of the elites in the form of one Donald J. Trump. Who by the way, has fantasies like any man who is willing to admit to it. Open borders and trade? Now there is something that can kill, maim or otherwise destroy the America we so dearly love. Not a fantasy.

The song “Ladies who lunch” seems to be an appropriate Sunday Respite.

Hillary Clinton:

Reflecting in 2014 on the rage against political and economic elites that swept the country after the 2008 financial crash, Mrs. Clinton acknowledged that her family’s rising wealth had made her “kind of far removed” from the struggles of the middle class.

Hurricane Matthew bears down on Bunkerville South – Update

Update: All is well. We were blessed that the storm moved East and A-OK here! Many thanks for all your prayers and concern.

I am not sure if the power and internet will remain functional as Matthew descends upon us. I sure miss the North Bunker, but Florida is the place to be in the winter. A wonderful state except for one thing……….. yep you guessed it. Hurricanes. And this Bunker here in the South is no bunker in truth. Florida has no income tax, Homestead exception for seniors regarding real estate tax, no inheritance tax, no car inspections, no death tax to name a few. Encourages everyone to get their concealed carry. So there are the ups and downs of Florida. I am well provisioned, did my prepper work weeks ago so Let’s roll!

Many thanks to all who shared their concern for our safety. It is easy to get jaded about humanity but the well wishers who have written and commented restores my faith that the majority of Americans are good and decent people. So let me get off my soap box. Prayers to all who are in harm’s way. (Adding this additional post today in case we are knocked out.)
