Grammys (once again) Reveals Satanic Connection

By Douglas V. Gibbs
Author, Speaker, Instructor, Radio Host

In 2014 on my radio program I spoke about Natalie Grant leaving the Grammys early because she was disturbed by what she saw, an open display of witchcraft and satanism on stage.  

In 2018 a satanic statue, The Arch of Baal, was erected in Washington D.C. one day before Justice Kavanaugh testified before Congress.

Then, in 2020, during the COVID lockdown measures government decided to force churches to close as "non-essential," while the big corporation stores, liquor stores, and strip bars remained open.

We are in a spiritual war.  I have always believed that.  The enemy, however, is ramping up in ways that boggles the mind.

Which brings us to the 2023 Grammy Awards.

The entertainment industry has been worsening with each step, from movies to music, but the Grammys have been, as I indicated earlier with the 2014 Grammy Awards, a place where the most evil, unholy, satanic visions emerge the most.

Sam Smith and Kim Petras performed their "hit", which is titled "Unholy", on stage and the performance was not just laced with a satanic touch, it was a straight out satanic ritual.

What is even more frightening is that the perpetrators of “Unholy” won the Grammy for best pop duo or group. Variety.

From Independent Journal Review: Smith began clad in red leather, then added a Satanic-horned top hat. Petras was shown dancing in a cage, surrounded by dancers also wearing Satanic headgear.

Revulsion flowed on Twitter.

“This…is…evil,” Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas posted, responding to a Liz Wheeler post that said, “… [d]emons are teaching your kids to worship Satan.” 

“Hollywood freaks still thinking they’re so edgy with their Satanic themed performances,” Stephanie Hamill wrote.

“WOKE #GRAMMYs Satanic worshiping. I cannot believe what i just witnessed,” Sabina Palermo wrote.

If they wish to be idiots, so be it.  I do believe in liberty.  I agree we are not supposed to have an established religion, so I don't believe such behavior should be "outlawed" as if we are some kind of theocracy.  But, our culture is in deep trouble.  If we abandon our Christian foundation, and we follow this kind of craziness, our system of liberty is doomed.  A culture that abandons its moral standards and chases after evil in this way cannot stand.

The difference between good and evil is self-evident.  This was not just artists expressing themselves, this was a purposeful stab at the heart of the foundation of the American System, and a cry out to the kind of evil that only the Bible and horror movies typically only speak about.  Evil always fails, and always dies out taking many lives with it.  Death is on the horizon if this kind of satanic stuff continues to infest our culture and younger generation.

Petras revealed an anti-religious fervor after the show in an interview:

“I think a lot of people, honestly, have kind of labeled what I stand for and what Sam stands for as religiously not cool, and I personally grew up wondering about religion and wanting to be a part of it but slowly realizing it didn’t want me to be a part of it,” Petras said.

“So it’s a take on not being able to choose religion. And not being able to live the way that people might want you to live because as a trans person I’m already not kind of wanted in religion. So we were doing a take on that, and I was kind of hellkeeper Kim.”

Let me pause for a moment.  The argument was anti-religion, and as a Christian, I am not fond of religion, either.  Religion is man-made.  Faith is God-made.  While I enjoy fellowshipping with fellow Christians at church, and other venues, and I appreciate "religion" in my life, that is not what makes me a Christian.  My faith comes from a personal relationship with Jesus Christ; something Kim Petras, or Sam Smith fails to realize.  Like most anti-religious people they see God's moral standard as a limitation on them, and "religious people" as just a bunch of self-righteous bigots or hypocrites.  I agree, no human being is "righteous."  The Book of Romans says we all fall short of the Glory of God.  Yep, we are sinners, which is why we have Jesus.  God's Laws, moral standard, and so forth are not limitations.  They are protections.  Sinful behavior always carries with it consequences.

What is even more concerning is that an evil spirit, call it Satan or demonic emanations, if you like, has blanketed this world to destroy anything that stands against it.  Petras, Smith, the entertainment industry, and those fooled by the evil narrative have become minions for that evil.  They are, whether they realize it or not, actively participating in an ageless war that began in the heavens, manifested in the actions of Cain against his brother Abel, and has been behind the countless tyrannies and wars for power and wealth this planet has seen.  Without realizing it these people are casting their lots into the same fiery furnace with the likes of the biblical Pharaoh (Ramses?) of Egypt, Mongol Warlords like Genghis Kahn and Tamerlane, Herod, the leaders of Babylon, Ivan the Terrible, Vlad the Impaler, Idi Amin, Saddam Hussein, Pol Pot, Adolf Hitler, Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong, and so on.  

What is going on goes way beyond blasphemy.  What we are seeing in things like the performance at the Grammys are tributes to Satan, which reveals an "alliance with Satan" that is, for lack of a better way of saying it, very dangerous not only for the physical world but on spiritual levels that places everyone at risk.

They know not the powers they dabble with.  Some of them think it is just one big joke.  Trevor Noah, the host of this year's Grammys, joked about the performance claims the Daily Mail.

Acting as though he was on the phone with his mother, he said, “No, mom, it wasn’t the actual devil … Yeah, you did warn me about Hollywood.”

Noah then wrapped up the fake call and told the audience, “She said she’s praying for all of us.”

The Daily Mail made a note that Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were among those laughing at the remark.  Laughing at their dalliance into Satan's realm.  It's like the old saying goes, "If you play with fire, you will get burned."

America's First Naval Operations, 1776

By Douglas V. Gibbs
Author, Speaker, Instructor, Radio Host

The formation of the Continental Navy on October 13, 1775 led to the creation of a small fleet of five ships by December, 1775.  Those five ships, Alfred, Columbus, Cabot, Providence, and Andrea Doria were under the command of Commodore Esek Hopkins.

On November 10, Congress authorized the formation of two Marine battalions for the purpose of defending the ships, and creating both offensive and defensive infantry capability for the new navy.  The battalions were stationed on board the Alfred with Captain Samuel Nicholas in command, and the Andrea Doria with Lieutenant Isaac Craig in command.  The young navy was tasked with defending American commerce on the open seas.  But, due to the fact that the Delaware River was frozen solid, the fleet remained inactive more a number of months.  During that time three more ships were added to the fleet, Fly, Hornet, and Wasp, with five companies of Marines assembled to sail with them.

February 18, 1776 the ships were able to move into the Atlantic Ocean for the first time.  While most ships of that era were equipped with 74 guns, the armament of the American vessels was quite small.

·       Alfred: 30 guns

·       Columbus: 28 guns

·       Cabot: 14 guns

·       Andrea Doria: 14 guns

·       Providence: 12 guns

·       Hornet: 10 guns

·       Wasp: 8 guns

·       Fly: 6 guns

Early on, well-knowing the ships were under-gunned, Commodore Hopkins decided it was not wise to confront British warships and instead his fleet set sail for the West Indies.  His target was Nassau, on New Providence Island, in the Bahamas.

March 1 at Great Abaco Island, north of New Providence Island, the American ships seized two small loyalist ships, and then the captured sailors were persuaded to assist the Americans in navigating the local waters.  The next day the Americans arrived at Nassau Harbor.

The arrival of American vessels in the Bahamas was a shock to British Governor Montfort Browne.  While the harbor entrance was heavily fortified with artillery at two forts the British did not have the manpower to provide a heavy enough barrage to thwart the approaching vessels.  The light barrage did accomplish the feat of keeping the incoming squadron of ships out of range, but the British leadership knew that if the Americans decided to press forward the Loyalists manning the island would not last for long.  During the night, to keep the gunpowder out of rebel hands, a sloop was loaded with a bulk of the precious cargo and sent to St. Augustine, Florida.  By morning the British saw that the American fleet remained anchored offshore beyond the range of British artillery, but an amphibious assault by American Marines was underway.  The staging point for the Marines had been Hanover Sound, nine miles east of Nassau.  284 Marines and Sailors participated in the amphibious assault.  The forty loyalist militiamen were outnumbered, and many of them abandoned the fight.  Governor Browne surrendered without a shot being fired, giving both forts and the small garrison to the Americans.  While most of the gunpowder was gone, the Patriots seized 88 cannons, 15 mortars, and valuable supplies that were badly needed for the war effort.

During the return trip to the mainland the American vessels encountered and engaged two small British warships on April 4.  Both the Hawk and the Bolton capitulated, since the lightly armed American Fleet was more massive and could fire from all directions.  From the mouths of the captured sailors Hopkins learned that British vessels were amassing near Newport, Rhode Island, so Hopkins pointed his fleet towards nearby New London, Connecticut.

April 6 the fleet encountered the British warship Glasgow, a 20-gun vessel commanded by Captain Tyringham Howe, along with a crew of 150 sailors.  The British vessel was sailing to Charleston with dispatches.  A battle ensued, and the American ships ultimately suffered more damage than they inflicted.  Ten sailors were killed, including Commodore Hopkins’ son, Captain John B. Hopkins, who was aboard the Cabot.  Unable to restrain the Glasgow the British ship escaped, and the American fleet arrived at its destination on April 8.  The first American naval campaign, with its small victories, boosted morale, and encouraged young naval officers like Lieutenant John Paul Jones aboard the Alfred to be better prepared for future maritime combat. 

In the grand scheme of things the launch of the American naval force and its initial victories forced the British Crown to reevaluate how and where it would distribute resources.  Later, after France allied itself with the Americans, naval warfare between the British and the French in the West Indies became common.

Coast Guard Drug Bust, Gulf of Oman

by Douglas V. Gibbs
Author, Speaker, Instructor, Radio Host

The news is buzzing over the story that appeared a couple days ago in which the US Coast Guard seized $33 million of hashish and meth in the Gulf of Oman from a fishing vessel being used to smuggle the drugs. This is not the first bust during the first month of 2023. Earlier that month the U.S. Navy seized more than 2,000 AK-47s.

The breakdown of the seizure:
  • More than 8,800 pounds of hashish
  • About 1,128 pounds of methamphetamine
  • The Coast Guard vessel that made the bust was the Coast Guard cutter Emlen Tunnell.
As a part of a combined task force the Coast Guard ship was patrolling waters in the Gulf of Oman when the bust was made. The Combined Task Force 150 is currently in the area for the purpose of disrupting criminal and terrorist activities in the area.

"This is just the beginning of our work in delivering maritime security operations in the region to stop illicit activities and drug smuggling," UK Royal Navy Capt. James Byron, the CTF 150 commander, said in a statement. "This comes as a result of a valued partnership between CTF 150 and all partner nations in Combined Maritime Forces."

In 2021 the operations of the Combined Task Force 150 led to a seizure of about $1 billion worth of drugs, including hashish, heroin, opium, and amphetamines.

The U.S. Coast Guard operated in the Gulf of Oman in 2022 performing similar tasks, participating in a drug bust on Aug. 30, 2022. In October the Coast Guard cutter Glen Harris seized about $48 million worth of hashish and meth from drug smugglers.

Aside from drugs, patrols led by the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard have also interdicted smugglers trying to sneak weapons through the Gulf of Oman. More than 2,000 assault rifles have been confiscated by the U.S. Navy from Iranian smugglers. In January of 2023 the U.S. Navy seized 2,116 AK-47s from a vessel crewed by Yemeni nationals in the Gulf of Oman.

A student from one of my Constitution Classes in Southern California asked me if the Coast Guard had any jurisdiction to be involved in those raids.

Good question.

First, let's go over the Constitutional Authority of the federal government to be involved with such maritime operations.

Article I, Section 8 grants to Congress the authority to make legislation defining the punishment of piracies and felonies committed on the high seas.

As Commander in Chief as per Article II, Section 2, the President has the authority to deploy the military to carry out that duty.

Article III, Section 2 gives the federal courts the authority to hear maritime law cases, and attaint the offenders upon conviction.

So, the drug bust itself is supported by various granted constitutional authorities. However, in seas outside those that fall under American jurisdiction, only the Navy would be the authorized maritime military entity to carry out the "drug bust".

According to 33 US Code Chapter 3 the jurisdiction of the Coast Guard covers all navigable waters of the U.S. landward...

... and the U.S. Coastline up to 200 miles from the shore of the U.S. coastline.

While the United States has the constitutional authority to operate has they have in the Gulf of Oman, and make the seizures they have made, and indict and convict the parties involved in a court of law, the presence of the U.S. Coast Guard in all of that seems to be not in line with the actual wording of the law in regards to their jurisdiction. The argument regarding the Coast Guard's various operations in other parts of the world falls under the fact that the Coast Guard is considered a branch of the United States Military. As such, the Commander in Chief may deploy them wherever he wishes, goes the argument. I am not convinced that the deployment of the Coast Guard to foreign waters was what was intended when the first administration established the Coast Guard (operating under many names, including Revenue-Marine) in 1790 (one year after the Constitution went into operation), through the Tariff Act authorizing the construction of ten vessels, referred to as "cutters," to enforce federal tariff and trade laws and to prevent smuggling. The creation of the service had been lobbied by Alexander Hamilton, the first Secretary of the Treasury. Once Congress finally provided for the "cutters" in the Tariff Act, George Washington signed the bill into law. Until the U.S. Navy was reestablished in 1798, the cutters served as America's only maritime military service.

In 1915 the U.S. Life-Saving Service was officially renamed the Coast Guard, and became recognized as an official branch of the United States Military. In 1939, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's administration transferred the Lighthouse Service to the Coast Guard, putting it in charge of maritime navigation. In 1946, Congress permanently transferred the Commerce Department's Bureau of Marine Inspection and Navigation to the Coast Guard, putting merchant marine licensing and merchant vessel safety in its control. In 1967 the Coast Guard was transferred to the federal Department of Transportation. In 2003 the Coast Guard was again transferred, this time to the Department of Homeland Security, where it currently serves. The service's current position under Homeland Security also provides those who wish to use the Coast Guard internationally the "excuse" to do so, despite its jurisdiction officially being to the contrary.

Added note: From the establishment point of view Coast Guard jurisdiction is not limited in a state of emergency. Therefore, they are operating as if emergency powers are in play (not that such a condition would change constitutional authorities).

Hamilton 68 Fraud Regarding Russian Bots

by Douglas V. Gibbs
Author, Speaker, Instructor, Radio Host

Tyrants lie, cheat, and come up with some pretty diabolical schemes.  In their schemes that arose when Donald J. Trump stuck a stick in their spokes the hard left consortium of globalists and power-seeking collectivists concocted a scheme to convince the public that a perpetual war is going on, and that the enemy has infiltrated American politics.  The Russians were the scapegoat for the 2016 election, and the cabal behind online opinion that dared to disagree with the progressive commie left's narrative.  Then, after putting the message out there that the Russians were crawling throughout the Republican Party and were the puppet masters behind everything Trump did, and everyone around him, they created an image revealing hordes of those enemies.  The smoke and mirrors worked perfectly, until Elon Musk decided to release Twitter files showing the reality behind the curtain.

The Russia-Russia-Russia narrative had real players who "they" said were Russian infiltrators and influencers, but the reality was nearly all of it was simply a mask that looked Russian, placed on the identities of some very real people that, to be frank, had nothing to do with Russia, and instead were pro-liberty enemies of the hard left machine perpetrating the scheme.

Twitter file releases have been flying into the public eye for a while now, ever since Elon Musk's takeover of Twitter.  He's not a conservative, or constitutionalism ally, but he's definitely not a fan of what the hard left has been doing, and so in that sense Musk fits the enemy-of-my-enemy-is-a-friend label.  Musk's Twitter file releases have exposed fraud and media complicity with government that has been used against the critics of the power players of an evil cabal of globalist leftism and mercantilist elitists in ways that this writer could not have even imagined for a fictional novel about hostile government and societal takeovers if I tried.  Truth is stranger, and more diabolical, than fiction, in this case.  

The Russia-Russia-Russia election hoax was only step one.  It needed to be followed up if the hard left was to dismantle the Trump problem that had flopped on their front porch.  The data cheat for the election was overwhelmed by Trump's popularity, and to hide their Voter Roll/Election Fraud game the Russian hoax game was dreamed up, and put into action.  Then, during the early years of Trump's presidency "Hamilton 68" emerged as a source of news that the leftist media gobbled up.  The news stories largely claimed that Russian bots were being tracked online and that the Russians were feeding us all kinds of fake news.  In truth, it was all a game to cover-up the Democrat Party's (and their myriad of allies) part in the attacks against the 2016 election of Donald J. Trump.

Hamilton 68 produced a list of 600 accounts that were tied to the Russians.  However, with recent Twitter file releases the list was found and the Russian influence on that list of accounts was, well, not there.  Instead, the list was full of real Americans who in ordinary conversations were tagged as being Russian-influenced or Russian influencers.  In short, all of it was one great big fraud.

The fact that the enemy resorts to lying is not a surprise.  That is what they do, and have been doing since the beginning of time.  Most of those Americans tagged as "Russian" were actually conservatives; the "real" enemy of the hard left Democrats and their RINO allies.  

Hamilton 68 was a fraud from the get-go, designed to propagate the Russian Election Collusion hoax while vilifying and censoring any messages coming from conservative voices.  Trump was popular, and they were willing to do whatever it took on the technology information battlefield to end the discussions that were pro-Trump.  Then, as Twitter and other social media sites turned conservative talk into "Russian-influenced propaganda" in the eyes of the public, the leftist media ran with it, happy to claim that the Russians who were the international enemy were also sounding like Trumpsters, and behind Trump's popularity.

Who were the masterminds behind this craziness?  They included (but it was not limited to):

  • Clint Watts, Former FBI Special Agent and MSNBC Contributor.
  • William "Bill" Kristol, CNN Contributor, Co-Founder Weekly Standard.
  • John Podesta, Hillary Clinton Advisor, Obama Advisor, and current Biden clean energy advisor.
  • Michael Morell, Career Intelligence Analyst, Acting Director of the CIA in 2011.
  • Michael Anthony McFaul, Ambassador to Russia from 2012-2014, International Studies Professor at Stanford University, contributing columnist at The Washington Post, former U.S. National Security Council as Special Assistant to the President and senior director of Russian and Eurasian affairs.  Architect of U.S. President Barack Obama's Russian reset policy.
The Russian Election Collusion story, and the Russian Bots influencing the various stories regarding various politicans, definitely had an impact on our system and the culture.  Conservatives were targeted, and the opinions of the normies were altered by it.  Hamilton 68 went after anyone who was a critic of the leftist consortium run by people like the Clintons, Obamas, George Soros, and all of the other collectivist globalist anti-liberty players.  Thanks to Elon Musk, another cat is out of the bag.  If truth had been allowed and recognized from the beginning, and if we were even able to broadcast the truth broadly even for a moment, today, the power players would be behind bars.  The problem is, the criminals are in control of the media, the information highway, and they are auditors of their own actions, the elections, and the legal system.  It is they who guides the voices everyone hears in the media.  Until that hold on our institutions has been shattered, the fraud, lies, and evil will continue.
