THIS: I am reading”The Witch of the Monongahela: Folk Magic in Early Western Pennsylvania” by Thomas White and wanted to share this quote with you.

“However, folk magic has its own internal logic and rules. It is guided by two interdependent ideas: contagion and transference. Disease, bad luck and misfortunes are caused by evil and are contagious in the sense that they can be given to or caught by a person, either unintentionally through daily activity and encounters or deliberately because of another person or entity.”

I was watching, M*A*S*H last night, as I do, and they were talking about placebos. I got to thinking about the power of thoughts which we will get to in a moment. Then today, I was thinking about an episode of The Xfiles where people were infected with something that when they thought about a certain disease, or way of death, it happened to them. Most notably a woman dies of hantavirus where there are no mice or mouse droppings to infect her simply because (well not so simply she was infected with something that helped her thoughts ‘off’ her) she thought she had the diseases which in turn caused her to manifest the symptoms and then die from those symptoms.

I am reading some pretty crazy stories, and watching just as crazy videos of how people are behaving because of this ‘virus’. We are behaving less humanely toward one another everyday because of FEAR and THAT is the real tragedy to come out of this shared ordeal.I see people wearing masks in their cars, or outside and they are alone… so, SO alone in many ways.

I read online about a woman at a gas pump telling a man he had to put on his mask before she could get out of her car. His right response? ‘Sit there.’. he told her.

I learned the specifics of mind over matter or group pressure/peer pressure in college when I took psychology 101. It begins with a few people repeating the same thing, a lie, over and over until the whole classroom is on board. Any holdovers are browbeaten until they either get angry enough to walk out of class or capitulate to what is going on. THAT is how we got WWII. THAT’S how the Nazi’s were able to take over but more importantly… THAT is also how we were able to team up with other nations and defeat our common enemy.Not, of course through lies and intimidation but by coming together under one common ideology, a GOOD ideology, and making sure everyone knew what we were doing and why it was so important. A good peer pressure not the bad peer pressure we now face.

That same bad peer pressure responsible for so many deaths and so much destruction by the Nazis is how thousands of innocent people were burned at the stake during the witch trials or Burning Years. People in third world countries are still being burned to death and tortured or both because of negative peer pressure. They are dying because of greed, or fear but none are dying because they are demon possessed witches who have had sexual intercourse with the devil. and now… now we have the virus and the negative peer, and governmental, pressures that are forming because of it.

Not only are fictions being reported as facts but those who try to tell the truth are silenced. They lose their jobs. Their social media accounts are removed. People, experts on the topic, are being erased. Australia has placed its own people in internment/concentration camps. THEIR-OWN-PEOPLE!! No matter who it is this is not acceptable but I am totally shocked that this is going on and there is no public/media outcry against this! Where are the embargoes? Where are the celebrity/athlete outcries? COME ON!

Let’s start with standing up against ‘gender appropriation’.

THIS IS NOT A WOMAN:

This is a man. A man in a dress is not a woman; he is just a man in a dress. It is incredibly degrading and insulting, to a woman to be reduced to outward appearances IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM. Is this not part of what feminists have been fighting against all of these years? For women to not be treated according to our outward appearance? Yet when a man dresses up as a woman and wins an event, he is instantly embraced as a woman by the liberal left. I sometimes wear a ball-cap. This does not make me a man. A girl playing dress up and putting on a cat-ears headband does not suddenly transform into a cat. No matter how many people call her a cat, or how loud she ‘meows’ she is still a little girl in a cat-ears headband and NOT a cat. Why did I ‘go THERE’? Because a lie is a lie. America has turned into a nation of lies being run by liars.

The whole world western world seems to be reading, The Emperor’s New Clothes as a how-to manual instead of a cautionary tale.

I hope those who have the power to stop this madness get going on saving America before it is too late. Before we too have concentration camps for the unvaxxed.

Are you a victim of folk magic or science; of lies or of truth? Do you hate the word victim? Do you feel empowered right now? REALLY empowered as you drive around in your car, alone, wearing mask? Do feel empowered when you are being chased out of a store or cannot be hired because you will not mask or receive the jab? What happened to my body my choice? Oh that’s right it only applies if you wish to take a life not save your life. I am utterly humiliated by what is happening in our country. All of the innocent lives lost because of greed, sin, ignorance and the serious lack of critical thinking by the public. You cannot live your life believing everything MSM tells you to believe. At some point you need to put on that thinking cap God gave you (your brain— use your brain!) and start thinking!

I have an idea; let us gather together separately (not an oxymoron) every Saturday night and pray against our enemies. There are so many!

Every Saturday at 6:00 p.m. where ever you are so that there is, hopefully, continuous prayer across the map from time zone to time zone, we will pray any or all of the following;

Psalm 15 (16)1 Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge.

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

Nahum 1:7  The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; He knows those who take refuge in Him.

Psalm 2(3):3 But you, O LORD, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.

Hebrews 13:So we can confidently say,  “The Lord is my helper;  I will not fear; what can man do to me?”

Proverbs 18:10   The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.

Psalm 137 (138):Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and your right hand delivers me.

It does not matter what verse you find to pray or how many. I believe in the power of unity in prayer. It does not matter what denomination you are, what bible you use, just PRAY!.

I do believe our prayers can break through the lies being told. Keep praying!

Is this whole ‘covid thing’ more folk magic than science?
