Let’s get this straight.

The government isn’t against hate because the people in power are fully hateful themselves.

No, these people are against all people who oppose their totalitarian plans, or those who will think for themselves.

I have followed the work of Pastor Ted Pike since the early 2000s. He explained who in the beginning was starting to push the idea of "misinformation."


I recently exchanged emails with Ted Pike. I think he stills posts stories of important to the theme of "hate crimes" but he no longer gives his personal commentary on the site because of ill health.

Conspiracy and collusion ARE legal crimes that involved two or more people getting together and plotting and planning to do a crime and people or companies secretly acting "in cahoots" with each other when their public image is that the companies are supposed to be perceived as being in competition. Neither conspiracy and collusion involve actual action but they are crimes. But simple thoughts of hate or revenge or even violence are not crimes. There is a difference between misinformation and disinformation. Misinformation is information conveyed that is incorrect or inaccurate but not necessarily deliberately so. Disinformation is knowingly and deliberately conveying false information for the purpose of misleading or causing chaos and confusion so as to destabilize an issue or incite others to criminal actions.

That's the way I understand it.

The bible, from Genesis to Apocalypse (Revelation) tells us to seek to find the facts, evidence and truth to the fullest extent possible and Christ and the Apostles taught us that that is our best weapon in spiritual warfare in this world system.

Those who push the ideas about "misinformation" do seem to be against the teachings of Christ and His Apostles.

My Church is officially against "free speech" as it is generally understood. It is not okay to just say anything you feel like saying. That can lead to violent destruction of life and property or work to destroy nation's security and national sovereignty. *

My church also teaches that some government is definitely necessary for it is best for legal matters to be settled at the local level as much as possible (social doctrine of subsidiarity).



"Shouting fire in a crowded theater" is a popular analogy for speech or actions whose principal purpose is to create panic, and in particular for speech or actions which may for that reason be thought to be outside the scope of free speech protections. The phrase is a paraphrasing of a dictum, or non-binding statement, from Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.'s opinion in the United States Supreme Court case Schenck v. United States in 1919, which held that the defendant's speech in opposition to the draft during World War I was not protected free speech under the First Amendment of the United States Constitution.

I also see the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) hosting a booth at the county fairs around here (Bonner and Boundary counties in Idaho). What the hell are people thinking? Do we think that these federal agencies are our friends? Well, I've got news for you... they don't see us as friends.
