Offline for 6 months



Hey y'all! Just wanted people to know, I will be offline till July. I've decided to join an intense 6 month discipleship program run by the Atlanta Baptist Rescue Mission. This mission is owned and operated by Kings Way Church. There is no usable wi-fi on the premises and getting out will be extremely sporadic at best. Additionally, I will not be able to maintain the cellphone, so operating on 4G is out of the question. Since 2014, I have been going from place to place in various missions with zero long term plan that has been even slightly successful. This is the plan to end that. This has been posted 24 hours before I go offline. in a genuine life and death emergency, I can be reached via the mission phone number, but this is not to be used for anything but a life threatening emergency. I can still be reached by old fashioned snail mail. The address is 316 Peters Street Atlanta, GA 30313.

Naturally neither the Conservative Broadcast Facebook page, nor my social network profiles and Messenger will not be updated or monitored during this time.

A look back on Seattle

I arrived in Seattle at the end of 2014 and what a time it has been. From getting a real good picture of the homeless situation in the city, to seeing and hearing liberal ideology firsthand.

On the plus side, I went to my first Planned Parenthood protest as well as went to Farestart, which gave me the foundation for doing work in the culinary industry. Since then I've gone to multiple protests and worked the dishpits of several restaurants. There have been good times













And utterly infuriating times




But I have no complaints. It taught me a lot. When all is said and done, it doesn't matter what happens to us on this earth for it is temporary and is passing away. My God shall supply my needs and will work all things together for good. As I start this chapter in a new city and state, that is and will be, the only thing that should and will keep me going

Goodbye Everybody

So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodby! The time has come to leave Seattle. Leave the city that is on a fast tract to utter destruction. Super high housing prices and a $15 minimum wage being rolled out in stages means that even a single room in the city costs $600 a month. This is with rising homelessness and a Mayor that is simply making things up as he goes along and is doing nothing good. But where am I going? What will I do? In answer to that first question, the answer is:





Yes, I am moving there. In fact by the time, this gets published, everybody on Facebook will have seen my travels. Initially, I didnt think I knew anybody locally but it turns out there is a pastor nearby who used to be at my parents church. There is also another church right in the city run by a Bob Jones University graduate. And of course my siblings are studying at BJU. The real reason for moving to Atlanta specifically is because of an insane situation.

Metro Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless is a low barrier shelter, that has been harassed, and terrorized for years. The city is now taking initial steps to have it forcibly taken from it's owners by eminent domain. Now of course anybody with morals knows, this is theft and completely unacceptable. Initially I will be living right among them, but, there are several places I can transfer to, Including Atlanta Mission and a couple others. At the same time, I will be networking with local groups to patrol the area in a Neighborhood watch type system that has strong vibes of the numerous citizen Militias dotted around the country. The main point will be to advocate for those unable to do so. The idea that people without a home can be tossed here and there, rejects of society is horrifying and those that can be helped, should be taught to be independent, stand on their own two feet and not need to have their hand out, needing government assistance and shelters.
  The second task is public servant accountability. We see extremes all over the place. Either corruption, excusing terrible crimes and Constitutional violations, or we see hate. Anybody who says all cops should die, is a dangerous man. No, they should not. They should be made to be accountable if and when they forget their duties as public servants, or if they choose to violate a citizens Constitutional rights. The courts have long said, one is innocent until proven guilty and so do. I will be updating people via the blog until I have a local Facebook page set up and continuing to update people from here.
  This isnt going to be easy. Quite the contrary. The Taskforce has been plagued by crime and i'm going to be starting up a citizen led patrol group. While I do insist on the accountability of public servants and have no issue with active resistance to Constitutional violations, it is still the police who have to come and arrest the drug dealers and those who choose to fight in the street. For more information on the situation, this article dated December 28th has the basic idea. I fly out early morning on January 27th.

President Trump: Should a Christian Rejoice?



Dear Christian,


As the reality of a Trump presidency sinks in, the question I have is should we rejoice? Should we rejoice that a pathological liar was prevented from leading our country? Should we rejoice that a woman who believes we should have the right to murder the unborn hours from birth, didn't get her way? Should we rejoice that a person who made it clear she would spit on our Second Amendment rights, it not able to go through with her crimes? Absolutely not!


As Christians, everything we do must represent Christ as His ambassadors. Trump has made it clear, by his actions, he is not a godly man. He owns casinos, was divorced three times and claims he does not need to ask forgiveness. We by our vote claim that God approves of this behavior and attitude, when He clearly doesn't. We have misrepresented our God, failed in our Christian duty and now we're patting ourselves on the back because we thwarted a traitor from becoming President. Yet again, we have compromised and failed.


We are comfortable in our nice, safe churches. We go to Bible studies, attend services, run programs and while the converts may not be 'twice the sons of hell' that the Pharisees converts were, the principle is the same. They are converted to mediocrity. To compromise, to making do. We are not even under any real persecution and already we cannot vote for a godly man. We are as the church in Ephesus. Cold, lethargic and we as a nation deserve a person like Clinton. Oh yes, I was expecting Clinton to win as Judgement for our neglect of our duty as Christians and Americans. Yet once again, God showed us mercy and it is of His mercy that we are not consumed. And yet it will be a miracle if even one person is sorry for their behavior. While we decry liberals, when we are confronted, we will cry like one and make excuses. There are none. God will not accept excuses when we stand before Him, we will simply be judged. I will not rejoice with you. I am ashamed.

Reversal Zone - A Review

J. Grace Pennington has published four science fiction novels. They each have a unique bent to them, but this one is very different. Each book is a standalone, but as with any series, you get more of the story if you read them all in order. In Reversal Zone, the main character, Andi Lloyd, becomes the only one who can save the ship and crew. Can she do it in time?

About the Book

Nothing is as it should be. After weeks of boredom, Andi is excited when the Surveyor is called upon to rescue a freighter that mysteriously vanished in uncharted space. Excitement quickly turns to unease when the ship encounters an unknown phenomenon—a cloud that appears not to exist. But with the freighter's crew in danger, the Surveyor has no choice but to venture into unknown territory. As soon as they enter the cloud, its unstable effects wreak havoc on the ship. They're flying blind. Every piece of equipment is malfunctioning. And every member of the crew is unable to think straight or act like themselves—except Andi. Now she's expected to guide them through the predicament with no previous command experience and no one to turn to for support. And with each passing hour, it becomes clear that if they don't escape the cloud soon—they won't escape it at all. Amazon Link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LZV1ILB

The Review

 She's done it again. The latest in cutting edge sci-fi by Grace Pennington. She takes you on a journey of surprise and peril, twisting like a roller coaster till the very end. The people are real, the danger is real and the lives of all the crew hang by a thread held by one young lady, who rises to the challenge. You will want to make time to read the whole thing in a single sitting. I'd give this five stars but i'd like to give it 1000. This author knows how to captivate her audience.

Blesses Assurance - An Exerpt






Who doesn't like a good mystery? I'm sure there are a few, but most people do like mysteries. What about a mystery within a mystery. Faith Blum's new novella is just that. First there's the mystery of who tried to dupe five mail order brides. Then Adelaide finds out someone is claiming she's a runaway bride. What happens to her? Find out in Blessed Assurance.

About the Book

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

Adelaide lost her parents a year before and now a rich man in town is making unwanted advances toward her. Desperate, she writes to two men and quickly accepts the one from Cheyenne, Wyoming. On the final leg of her journey, in a stagecoach with four other mail order brides, her suspicions are confirmed. Will she ever find a man she can truly trust?

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01IIU5XPK



Detective Bradley Connor stepped off the train in Cheyenne and gathered his horse, saddle, and saddlebags from the cattle car. After stabling his horse at the livery and finding a hotel, he headed to the sheriff’s office.
“Are you the sheriff?” he asked the man behind the desk.
“I am. What can I do for you?”
“Bradley Connor. I’m a Pinkerton detective and I need some information from you.”
The sheriff sat up straighter. “Sheriff Leland Granger. I’ll certainly help in any way I can. What do you need to know?”
“Do you know of an Adelaide Brown?”
“Yes, I do. Surely she isn’t a criminal!” Sheriff Granger’s face was filled with horror.
“No, nothing like that. She simply ran away from someone and that person is looking for her. Could you tell me where she is staying?”
Sheriff Granger gave him an assessing look. “Why?”
“I need to speak with her alone. I have an uncomfortable feeling about the person who is looking for her and need to hear her side of the story first. Is she married?”
“No.”
Bradley leaned forward. “But she came out here as a mail order bride.”
“Yes, but she, and four others, were lured here by those ads. They were meant to be sold to saloons, but the outlaw’s plans were thwarted. Four of the five have now married. Adelaide is the only one who has not.”
“Why not?”
Sheriff Granger shrugged. “I don’t know. As for where she lives, she lives with Allen Reese and Edward Harris.” He gave Bradley the address. “But I would be careful about approaching her.”
Bradley nodded. “I will. Thank you.”
Bradley found the house and watched it carefully. It only took a few hours before he caught his first glimpse of her. She was truly as beautiful as his client had said she was. So why had she run away?

Faith Blum started writing at an early age. She started even before she could read! She even thought she
could write better than Dr. Seuss. Now that she has grown up a little more, she knows she will probably never reach the success of Dr. Seuss, but that doesn’t stop her from trying.

When she isn’t writing, Faith enjoys doing many right-brained activities such as reading, crafting, playing piano, and playing games with her family. One of her dreams is to visit Castle City, Montana, someday to see the ghost town she chose for her characters to live in. She currently lives on a hobby farm with her family in Wisconsin.
There are many ways to connect with Faith online. All of them can be found in one convenient place: http://FaithBlum.com. On her website you can find links to her various social media sites and both of her blogs as well as learn about any events she has coming up.

The We The People Problem

How does a real American live in a city like Seattle, Washington? That is the question I have to answer because I do. I live in a super liberal city where the percentage of people voting is pitifully small. The Mayor was elected with a paltry 30% of eligible voters doing so and just barely won, meaning he was elected by 15% of the population back in 2013.


Fast forward today and you have the Seattle Police Officers' Guild, which is the largest union, holding secret negotiations with Seattle police and when The Stranger managed to get hold of parts of it the Mayor then decided to get the FBI involved.

Here in Seattle, there is no Tea Party, no Militia in the entire state, no Constitution Party presence in the county and to top it off the Council made it clear, the People would not get a vote on whether to build the most expensive police precinct in the country despite huge backlash and objection from the public. 

I believe the police should be accountable to the public and we should make every effort to lawfully make them do so. However the big conundrum is this: How does one do so when there are so few right-wingers? 

Enter one of the most controversial groups in the nation today. Black Lives Matter. Now before you throw up and block me, i'm not a supporter of them. I believe the focus is wrong and should be on accountability instead of one ethnic group. However let's be real, the media is super biased. The left adores BLM and the right hates them and both sides love sensationalism. Let me give you a dose of reality from a local perspective. I've filmed two protests and not once was I harassed for it either by the police or the protesters. The local leader is a white man and neither protest had a single arrest that I am aware of. What I am saying is our public servants need accountability and these guys are peacefully protesting. The same can be said for the other groups which are almost totally leftwing. And yet there are many people in Facebook groups that are pro-2A and certainly support the Second Amendment. Can they be used to change things and make Seattle more accountable? I do believe they can. It's confusing because normally the left loves government control but I have found a Libertarian like me can survive quite well in person and on social networks and do so without compromising Constitutional beliefs. 

I intend to also get involved with the Constitution Party and be the voice in King County as there is nobody else to do it. And yes that does mean I am voting for Darrell Castle.  I refuse to vote for the lesser of two evils. That is why we have Trump and Hillary running. Two terrible people who will both destroy America as much as Obama has.
