  • The COVID PSYOP: A Conversation with Pastor Chuck Baldwin

    The COVID PSYOP: A Conversation with Pastor Chuck Baldwin

    15/05/2020 Duración: 28min

    Dr. Chuck Baldwin is pastor of Liberty Fellowship Church in Kalispell, Montana. He has extensive biography that you can find on the church’s website  I started following Pastor Baldwin on Facebook when another Facebook friend told me that Pastor Baldwin talked about things like the 9/11 deception and other crimes against humanity. The church’s bookstore has Christopher Bollyn’s book, The War on Terror: The Plot to Rule the Middle East for sale. Pastor Baldwin has spoken out about the perpetual "war on terror" and the damage it has inflicted in the Middle East and in America.  Then when this COVID thing started, I saw a presentation by Dr. Annie Bukacek that she gave at Liberty Fellowship challenging the way COVID 19 has been exaggerated on death certificates. I interviewed her about that on Progressive Spirit. Then I saw another presentation also at the church by Ronald Kukal, USS Liberty survivor. So I had Ron Kukal on my program. Ron Kukal is one of t

  • Resist the Initiation

    Resist the Initiation

    11/05/2020 Duración: 30min

    Sermon for Sunday, May 10, 2020. The use of isolation through quarantines of healthy people, social distancing, and mask-wearing are part of an initiation process to permanently separate us from one another, thus preparing us for a different kind of existence led by those who are conducting this ritual. The imposition of masks upon the human population has nothing to do with health. Even as this is what we are told this is all about. These masks, as I see it, are tools of a satanic ritual transformation. We are being initiated to die to all of our previous relationships.

    A sermon for Easter Sunday.  For those of you who have known me from before, you know, I have not spoken like this in my sermons or writings. It is because I underestimated the reality and the power of evil. I also underestimated the reality and power of goodness and truth.  No more. 

  • The Long Good Friday

    The Long Good Friday

    10/04/2020 Duración: 07min

    Today is Good Friday. It is Friday, April 10, 2020. The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem has closed its doors. This is the first time it has done so since the Black Death in 1349. In my opinion, The Coronavirus or COVID 19 is not the Black Death. Those who have manipulated this operation are the Black Death. COVID 19 is the perfect mechanism to get everything you want, assuming you are Satan or a servant of Satan. Here is an imaginary conversation with myself about what I might do if I were an evil billionaire servant of Satan.

  • Truth Jihad: A Conversation with Kevin Barrett

    Truth Jihad: A Conversation with Kevin Barrett

    10/01/2020 Duración: 57min

    In March 2018 I had a live interview scheduled with Dr. Kevin Barrett on my monthly show, "The Beloved Community" on KBOO. Through a smear campaign led by Rose City Antifa complete with name-calling, character assassination, and a deluge of tweets and phone calls, the station staff and management were pressured to stop the interview and actually ban Kevin Barrett from being on the air. (Staff and management claim they were not pressured.) I appealed the decision but my appeal was never addressed. Dr. Barrett never had an opportunity to defend himself. Volunteers or the membership never had an opportunity to review this process.  On December 13th, 2019 I broadcast a pre-recorded show that included audio from the last sermon I gave to my church, an interview with Dr. David Ray Griffin and a speech Dr. Kevin Barrett delivered at a KBOO-sponsored event at Portland State in February 2018 about US-Saudi relations. Staff, in response to phone calls, stopped the broadcast
