Another Mark Armstrong Update

Mark Armstrong has released yet another weekly update. (February 9, 2018.) Let's see what he has to say this time.

He intones that an ideological civil war is underway in the United States.
Aside from some suspicious unsolved murders, and the gang mayhem that's spread across America, no shots have been fired.  But there is an ideological civil war in progress.  It's ugly and it seems to have permeated nearly everything.  It has certainly tainted what passes for news.  Blessedly, we have a wide variety of informational sources.  If mainstream outlets still had a monopoly on the selection and distribution of information, we'd be even further down the path of authoritarian bans and mandates than we are.
He complains that some view the "make America great again" slogan in a negative way.
Some are excited, and some are repulsed at the prospect of any actual progress toward making America great again.  All mainstream outlets call that slogan and the philosophy behind it racist, hateful, bigoted and many of the commentators pretty much lose all pretense of professionalism during any discussion. 
He then complains that during a recent trip he saw so many people who did not speak English even though he lives in a state, namely Texas, that happens to be located next to Mexico.
But the realization is setting in.  It's not a question of great again, but whether the United States can be saved from the transformation we've already undergone.  My immediate family and I went on a road trip this week for a few days of skiing.  Most everywhere we stopped along the way, every gas station, mini-market, truck stop, and restaurant brought the realization that we are already outnumbered by people who don't even speak English.  It may not be true statistically, yet, but any calculation of future child-bearing proclivities would make it abundantly clear that regular Americans are on a glide path to third-world blight.  Call the observation racist or whatever, the reality cannot be more than one generation from now, if that. 
He scare mongers that if Clinton had won the election "this unique experiment" would have been ended "forever."
We're beginning to find out just how close we came to losing this country to corruption at the highest levels.  If the rigging of the most powerful agencies had succeeded, and their first woman president had been elected, none of the bombshells now exploding would ever have gone off.  James Comey would still head the F. B. I.  Loretta Lynch would still be the Attorney General.  The Justice Department and the IRS would still be targeting political opponents for harassment and prosecution.  And that would have been the end of this unique experiment, forever. 
He complains that the budget adds more debt and essentailly blames the other party which he does not like.
After much hand-wringing and grandstanding, Congress managed to pass a two-year budget that plunges the U. S. into another couple of trillion in debt.  Our government is still spending like a drunken sailor, with none of the reforms of waste and graft having been addressed.  It's the reality of an adversarial situation in government where “compromise” with the vast bureaucracy and socialist juggernaut has become necessary in order to just fund the American military.  When it comes right down to it, even the radicals know there'd be nothing for them to steal, and nobody left for them to berate without the protection of the military, hate it as they do.
Even though Saudi Arabia spends about seven times as much money on military expenditure then Iran and that it is widely believed that the State of Israel has nuclear weapons he scare mongers about Iran.
Funny, how what we knew to be true on its face ends up being confirmed a year or two after the fact.  You remember the shrink-wrapped pallets of currency Obama sent to Tehran as part of the “Iran deal?”  It's been tracked down and documented that much of it was apportioned out to Hezbollah and to the terrorist movement that's made Yemen more uninhabitable than it already was.  Iran has strengthened its hand in Iraq, in Syria, Lebanon, is financing the war in Yemen and threatening Saudi Arabia.  It could very well become an acknowledged nuclear power in the blink of an eye.
He mentions that Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea and the participation of North Koreans in it. He mockingly refers to Kin Jong-un as "the little fat boy" seemingly unconcerned about possibly exacerbating the situation or of indulging himself in fat shaming.
Everyone is heartened that North Korea has sent delegations, a few competitors and even Kim Jong-un’s sister to the Winter Olympics in South Korea.  At least it bodes well that we don't expect a war for at least the next couple of weeks.  Maybe the confrontational posture toward the little fat boy wasn't such a lunatic play after all.  But the longer term is far from certain.
He then takes solace in the thought that his version of the Armstrongite God is far greater then anyone outside he does not approve of.
There's no denying, we've seen some evidence of miracles in our own lives and in the bigger picture in the very recent past.  God's Hand has been apparent in developments no-one could have predicted or would have believed if anybody had.  His power is way beyond all of our concerns, and that's where they need to be taken.  The odds were much worse than they are now, and we've been short on faith.  This Sabbath would be a great time to turn it all over to Him.  The bickering, the insults, the threats and dangers, all of it.  He's way ahead of us, and His will be done.  
He then mentions some statistics of his organization's attempts to reach out to new people to gain new recruits.
P. S.  Here's a brief rundown of recent advertising results via the Internet, in round numbers. 
On the subject of Heaven and Hell, of 44,000 reached, over 4,500 followed our link. 
Clean and Unclean Meats                      6,000                         600 
Easter or the Passover                          19,000                      1,000 
Does God Allow Evil                            2,800                         300

Total reached                                       54,000                      6,300 
These percentages look promising, and we'll be increasing our output dramatically.
He then states that they are broadcasting TV programs.
We've also taken television time on the Retro and Family networks.  They are available on the digital antennas for local reception.  It just started, but we're already receiving some calls and early results look promising.
I pity anyone who gets intrigued about this organization through such broadcasts. It is to be hoped that they conclude that their time is better spent elsewhere.

  1. Many of the changes he complains about are permanent, unless there is a civil war in which whites attempt to vanquish and deport minorities. Not going to happen! We’ve fought wars to curtail the ethnic “cleansing” taking place in other nations.

    What Mark fails to realize is that back in 1967 when he was a teenager in Imperial Schools, there was an immigration reform act. Whereas immigration quotas had always favored white Europeans who were culturally similar to the USA at that time in history, immigrant quotas from Asia, India, the Middle East, and Africa were revised upwards in 1967 so that they would be more consistent with the European quotas. Obviously, it took some time for the full impact of this to take effect, but it became very noticeable by the 1980s.

    The UK experienced a similar transformation, starting in the late 1950s, when citizens from the non-white nations of the British Empire began exercising their freedoms to move to England.

    In reality, the evolution towards globalization has moved the classic complexion of the world beyond the point of no return. Many of the people whose parents or grandparents have moved from their ancestral lands have intermarried amongst the predominant population, and their offspring know no other home but their present one. They are American in every aspect, and in many cases appreciate the opportunities here to a greater extent than do those whose ancestors came over on the Mayflower. Statistically, by the second generation, the immigrants are almost completely Americanized.

    Mark should look at the positives. Usually, it is the best and brightest who are able to come here. Immigration creates new allegiances, and builds vested interests amongst participating nations in peace and prosperity. Cultural influences tend to make our population centers world class. Some former trends pass into the background, as new ones are gained. Things that are somewhat different are not always bad. Mark is teaching his people to be stuck in the past, and to regard themselves as being disempowered. This is just another way of promoting Armstrongism, because Armstrongism teaches that all of the races will return to their ancestral homes when Christ returns. But, as more multi-ethnic children are born, that will be the next Armstrongish pipe dream to fade into impossibility. The root cause of Mark’s problematic world view is that he believes in Armstrongism.
