"I've seen something wondrous peering through my joy in the beautiful, a sense of its creator.   Only people can be truly ugly, because they have free will to separate themselves from this song of praise.  It often seems they will drown out this hymn with cannon thunder, curses, and blasphemy.   But I have realized they will not succeed.  And so I want to throw myself on the side of the victor.”

Sophie Scholl

“During the Cold War this country has become frankly a warfare state built on affluence, a power structure in which the interests of big business, the obsessions of the military, and the phobias of political extremists both dominate and dictate our national policy.  It also seems that the people of the country are by and large reduced to passivity, confusion, resentment, frustration, thoughtlessness and ignorance, so that they blindly follow any line that is unraveled for them by the mass media.”

Thomas Merton, Cold War Letters, 1968

"What is unrecognized about JFK's presidency, which then makes his assas­sination a false mystery, is that he was locked in a struggle with his national security state. That state had higher values than obedience to the orders of a president who wanted peace.

There is nothing so threatening to systemic evil as those willing to stand against it regardless of the consequences. It’s unbelievable— or we’re supposed to think it is— that a president was murdered by our own government agencies because he was seeking a more stable peace than relying on nuclear weapons.  It’s unspeakable. 

Our collective denial of the obvious, in the setting up of Oswald and his transparent silencing by Ruby, made possible the Dallas cover-up.  The success of the cover-up was the indispensable foundation for the subsequent murders of Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, and Robert Kennedy by the same forces at work in our government—and in ourselves.  The unspeakable is not far away."

James Douglass, JFK and the Unspeakable

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

Ephesians 6:12

"Those who dared to break the conspiracy of silence risked consequences more severe than the assassination of one’s character.  Dr. Crenshaw said he 'reasoned that anyone who would go so far as to eliminate the President of the United States would surely not hesitate to kill a doctor.'”

Charles A. Crenshaw, with Hansen and Shaw, JFK: Conspiracy of Silence, 1992

What, indeed, would they not be willing to do, how many innocents would they not be willing to sacrifice, what hapless and gullible nations would they not be willing to seduce and plunder, given the heady opiates of power and money and winning, in their Faustian bargain with the rulers of darkness of this world?  

And when they stand before the risen Christ, and He shows them the blood of His lambs,  and His own holy wounds, will they say, 'It was nothing personal.  We did what had to be done. Everyone was doing it. It was strictly business.'

Stocks managed to rise again in complacent holiday week trading.

VIX declined.

The Dollar declined.

Gold and silver struggled but in the end showed only a small decline.

The US markets will be closed on Thursday for the Thanksgiving holiday.

They will be nominally open for a half day on Friday, with all the adults on holiday.

Have a pleasant evening.
