Bethany Book Fair

I am happy to announce I will be at the Bethany Book Fair this year in Mankato, MN. Got some cool posters, cards, etc., to give out and books to sell, namely Trolls for Dust, Seasons One and Two. Season Three is still in the works. The fair is part of the Fall Festival there and is on October 2nd, from 10AM-3PM in the SFC Younge Gym. Also, I am trying out a free ebook giveaway on Amazon. Never done this before, so we’ll see how it goes. It is for Trolls for Dust, Season One, and goes from October 1-5, 2021.

Happy Reading, everyone!

Vindication is coming, is already here.

Have a busy day ahead of me, so not sure I’ll get around to any reviews, but want to encourage everyone to follow Project Veritas. Like them or hate them, they are doing work that the main stream journalists often aren’t. This forcing of the COV vaccine, any vaccine really, but this in particular is one of the biggest crimes of humanity and especially of government that is supposed to watch out for our well-being.

Every day, story after story, the reasonable stance not to take the vaccine is being vindicated over and over and over again. I thank God for all willing to stand up and tell the truth and for whistleblowers like this woman. Wish that I could be that brave. I am so sorry for all those that have been harmed by this and also for all the many living in constant fear. God bless and here’s the link. Not sure how long Youtube will keep it up: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=obdI7tgKLtA

Autumn in Minnesota and updates

Autumn, Fall, Pumpkin Spice Season, whatever you want to call it, I love this time of year with the cooler weather perfect for leggings, jeans and sweatshirts. In Minnesota it always feels even more special, with all of the corn and beans ripening, the apples ready for picking, and the trees changing colors. Backyard grilling and fires over which to roast marshmallows. County and state fairs with delicacies galore. Favorite stop offs like the giant yellow candy store in Shakopee and pie at Emma Krumbee’s. New possibilities like zip lining at Kerfoot or exploring trails in Henderson. Hiking at the state parks and taking day trips with friends and family. Hunting for future Christmas gifts. Cooking fall dishes like butternut squash soup or spicy Indian food. Attending Trunk or Treats or Halloween/Fall parties. Drinking hot cider and hot cocoa. And especially, curling on the couch with a hot drink and a good book. Minnesota is awesome all around, but especially in the fall.

Some Updates: Only two more books, The Silver Chair and The Last Battle, until I finish The Chronicles of Narnia. So far The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is still my favorite.

I will be selling books at a book fair at Bethany Lutheran College in Mankato, MN, on October 2nd, so if you want copies of Trolls for Dust or an autograph, stop on by.

Loving The Possessed by Fyodor Dostoevsky so far and beginning another Brandon Sanderson one, Elantris. I am really trying to like and read Throne of Bones by Vox Day, but so far it is one long battle and that’s about it. Liked Summa Elvetica a lot better, but I will keep at it and hope once the story really picks up I will like it. Have another interesting fantasy series on my list: The Book of the New Sun by Gene Wolf. Sounds like it might be difficult to get through, too, but I met a big fan of the series who really talked it up, so at least have to try it. Also reading The Moon-Spinners by Mary Stewart. Saw the movie based on this with Hayley Mills awhile ago and it was a trippy adventure. The book is waylaid by a lot of scenery description. Am I the only one who finds most detailed scenery descriptions unnecessary in stories? Guess I’m more of a get the plot moving or characters moving kind of girl.

As far as Kdramas: I am rewatching the awesome The Lookout or The Guardians starring Kim Young Kwang (Pinocchio) and Lee Si Young (Playful Kiss). It’s got a stellar soundtrack and lots of action and intrigue. Started Witch‘s Court/Witch at Court with Jung Ryeo Won (The Lord of Dramas) and Yoon Hyun Min (Tunnel). Although I’m excited to see Yoon as a leading man here, it’s a heavy topic: Two prosecutors end up working in the Crimes against Girls unit. Jung’s character is thus far rather unsympathetic to her sex, but I think that will change over time. She plays a character you love to hate that will turn into one you’ll just love. At least, I hope so. Both leads have good chemistry so far and the acting is good. They seem like real people. Maybe not regular, but real people.

Ignorance is Death: Plague of Corruption Book Review

Oftentimes we think of corruption as a minor ailment in our society. The saying is that power corrupts, right? Anyone in a position of power is likely to be a bit corrupt, that is, a bit selfish and looking out only for themselves and their own interests, and their own agendas. And while it is true that in a sinful world we can never stamp out corruption completely, we should still be smart enough to understand that it shouldn’t be tolerated. Corruption isn’t just a rot slowly eating away at something, no, it is the complete distortion of something. A corrupt government, for example, is not a government, but a different entity entirely. A government governs, a corrupt government destroys a country.

Plague of Corruption by Dr. Judy Mikovits and Kent Heckenlively deals specifically with corruption in healthcare and science. This corruption is horrifying, but really not surprising considering that almost every level of our society is now corrupt. Almost every institution in America, and other countries as well, is doing the complete opposite of what they were created for. Selfishness doesn’t adequately describe it, and it’s certainly not a minor ailment. What this book describes is abominable on so many levels. Health care is so far from being about health that the question arises: What exactly is the purpose of the health care industry now today? Science, too. Whatever “science” is that people love so *&^% much, it’s not the observation of the real world and how it works. And it’s certainly not about asking questions.

This book was a good read, but the latter half is much better than the first. The authors take their time and use a roundabout way to get us to the destination. I enjoyed the second half largely because I was familiar with much of the information already and was intrigued to see it all fit together with the information from the start of the book. Mikovits begins with a harrowing tale that could easily be a crime show segment or something from a John Grisham novel. Those already skeptical of what’s coming would at this point perhaps roll their eyes and put down the book. But if they did that they would be missing a great deal. Not missing so much the information this book gives, but the questions it raises. Questions we should all be asking now and questions we or our great-greats should have been asking from the beginning. Ignorance is not bliss, as the saying goes. Ignorance is death.

My brother-in-law is fond of saying that babies are stupid. From one perspective, yes, they are; from another, babies are simply ignorant, and that is why for the first few years of life a parent’s number one job is to keep their child alive. Parents have to teach their kids about all the ways they could die and how to avoid them. Babies will really stick their fingers in an outlet, because why not? Babies are so cute and innocent, and as adults we can aspire to be like that because it’s good, but we should never aspire to ignorance. As this book shows. Ignorance equals death, if not for ourselves, perhaps for future generations.

As you can already tell this is going to be a lengthy review. I have a lot of thoughts about the material and there’s just so much to unpack in the book and about Mikovits’s story. She is a scientist that began work in 1980s largely dealing with retroviruses, cancer, and the like. She and her colleague, Dr. Frank Ruscetti, who was a founder of the retrovirus field, and isolated XMRV, or Xenotropic Murine Leukemia Virus, and its connection to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Yes that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. The most famous retrovirus is HIV and the book has much to say about that, too, and the corrupt Dr. Fauci.

As the book unfolds, it describes corruption in science, corruption in the law, corruption in government, corruption in testimony for the government’s vaccine court, which few know exists, but the heart of the matter is the physical manifestation of all of this corruption: Vaccines. Vaccines don’t equal dollar signs so much as they equal power, and absolute power at that. This book was written just before COVID hit and it’s obvious how all of the corruption and problems Mikovits describes are directly correlated to the medical tyranny we see today, right down to that dapper little Fauci.

So what’s wrong with vaccines, exactly? That’s the wrong question. Maybe the question should really be, what’s right about them? Mikovits takes one component: animal cell lines used in the manufacturing of vaccines and other medical research, and explains in detail the harm just that one thing in a jab is doing to the human body. Or could be doing to the human body. The staggering thing is, we really don’t know the affects and/or damage. Mikovits would encourage further study. Who knows, maybe further study would reveal more about what’s right in vaccines?

In her career, Mikovits came across quite a few instances where it was clear that these retroviruses were from animals and had been passed onto humans somehow. Each time she questioned a medical source, whether growth hormones given to cows, or vaccines given to people, she ran into trouble. Questioning these things is not allowed. Basically our corrupt institutions know quite well that these things are damaging people. They know exactly what they are doing and either they simply don’t want to get caught or they just don’t care. The animal cell lines used in manufacturing vaccines are directly related to HIV, XMRV, and other retroviruses and they are being passed to us, into our bodies are doing damage, causing AIDS, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and who knows what else.

“We are mixing animal and human tissue in laboratory cultures, then injecting them into human beings in a way that bypasses their traditional defenses, such as stomach acid breaking down pathogens.” – p. 124

Not only that, but we are injecting several pathogens at once with complete ignorance of what that combo does to the human body. In addition, we have no idea what injecting multiple pathogens along with animal cells, human cells, and the host of other poisons and chemicals also in vaccines actually does to the human body. How is this at all considered either safe or good for one’s health? I say ignorance, because it’s true. No one wants to know, not so many of the patients, or the doctors, or the health officials, or the scientists. When a person has a health problem after getting a vaccine, the vaccine being even a possible cause is across the universe in most people’s minds. When the CDC does a study on autism and vaccines and finds there is a connection that they should study further, they instead destroy the evidence. For some strange reason vaccines are considered a holy thing. A perfect creation made by humanity, far superior to the immune system that God gave us. Far superior to any medicinal plant God created. Sometime it’s like something beyond ignorance or even brainwashing of the general public. It’s a spell. If there ever really was an actual spell on people, this, to me, is it, this unquestioning acceptance of all things vaccine.

It’s only now, with COVID that more and more people are actually starting to question vaccines. And evil is showing its stupidity in forcing the vaccine, causing even more to question not only its effectiveness, but especially its safety. The stories Mikovits shares of people suffering, really suffering from vaccines and the disease and autoimmune disorders they have brought, are heartbreaking, as is the callousness of the powers that be. There are plenty of doctors and scientists who are not corrupt, who do want to, and can actually help. It’s just that they all have been and are now so often silenced from the public discourse.

Mikovits mentions her faith in God a few times in the book, but the fact that she ends in hope speaks volumes as well. She has hope that all this immune dysfunction people have now from vaccines can be remedied. Among the remedies, she mentions diets like keto and also practicing fasting. I cheered at that. So many people are finding better health by doing and especially eating the opposite of what their doctors tell them. Is it possible for corruption to simply fail when no one’s buying into it any longer? I hope so, I really do. People are waking up to the truth, and it has been a very slow process, but the tyrannical overreach has hastened things along considerably. That’s a strange thing to be grateful for, but I am.

No matter what side you’re on when it comes to health and science, I think Dr. Mikovits’s story is important and this book worth reading. We should be able to agree that both health and science need major cleanups for the good of future generations. We should be able to agree that people asking questions should not be silenced, but listened to. We should be able to agree that in matters of especially health, people need good information to make their decisions, and also that it is their decision. We should agree that those in power in both health and science need to be held to account. Again, ignorance is not bliss, it’s death, the death of our health, the death of our society, the death of even the knowledge that we’ve collected. If science cannot be questioned, then it is no longer science, but a cult or religion. Even God himself allows questions, invites them, even.

Not sure how many times I used the word “corrupt” in this review, but, whew, it was a lot. Plague of Corruption showcases how corruption is a plague on almost every aspect and institution supposed to keep us safe. This, I knew, and this we all know on some level, but Mikovits’s story really brings it home with all the connections from her research from the 1980s until now. A good read and thought provoking, giving many aspects to go and research for oneself, if one so chooses, and hopefully many have and do.

Until next time! –Pixie

In Sharing Truth, How Much Does Motive Matter?

My personal Bible study for fall is the book of Philippians and the devotion book Joy: A Study of Philippians by Deb Burma. It’s a 40-day study, but will take me longer as I am not an every day, diligent Bible studier. The depth of the Word of God is so awesome, because one can study a book or rather letter like Philippians and even though it is short, get so much wisdom and goodness from it. This is because Paul’s words are God’s words:

For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. –2 Peter 1:21

Here is the passage that really struck me today:

But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this, I rejoice. –Philippians 1:18

Paul is speaking here about the fact that because he is under house arrest, others are preaching the Gospel when and where he can’t. Some are doing out of genuine love and willingness to share God’s Word, others are doing it out of selfish ambition. They actually want to compete with Paul in some way or think if they preach the Good News it will cause more trouble for him. Paul rejoices, because whatever their motives, these people are still preaching Christ crucified and resurrected. They are still preaching that Jesus is our savior from sin, death, and the devil. From this perspective, even the false motives don’t matter.

It’s a humbling thing, really, especially considering churches in America. We have so many different denominations and each one thinks they are right in how they interpret Scripture, etc. Some do have actual false teachings and are wrong in that, but our fellow Christians are Christians. For me, even if Christians speaking God’s Word aren’t Lutheran, I should and can be happy that God’s Word is being preached. And it’s humbling to think that even if maybe, say, my motives or my church’s motives were more pure or something, it really doesn’t matter if we’re not preaching Christ to people. The important thing is that Jesus Christ is preached to everyone.

This is why I am so happy to be on Gab these days. So many Christians there and although we don’t necessarily believe the exact same things, when people are clearly declaring the Gospel and as owner Andrew Torba often says: Jesus is King! I am glad and rejoice that they are sharing and spreading God’s Word. How can I not be? And maybe a few of them have money as motivation–Christians often love supporting especially Christian businesses, etc., but still, if they are preaching the truth, that is what really matters!

God’s Word, the Law and Gospel, are the most important truths to share in the world, but this passage got me thinking about other truths. These days the powers that be are liars and following the father of lies, the devil, and they do this in many, many areas, health, politics, you name it. Many of the people speaking the truth are labeled as kooks or conspiracy theorists or grifters. But if people are making money by telling the truth, or at least by telling their stories, is that really such a problem? Does it really take that much away from what they are saying? Is what they are saying more important or why they are saying it? It’s a question that is perhaps answered differently depending on the circumstances, but I think that Paul’s advice above is good for truth in general: We should seek to find out the truth. Maybe the people sharing the truth have bad motives, but they are still sharing the truth! We should take notice and perhaps seriously consider what they are saying. It’s easy to be confident that we already have all the facts, etc., but so often these days we don’t. Things are purposefully hidden from the general public.

I’m reading Plague of Corruption by Dr. Judy Mikovits and Ken Heckenlively, JD. It’s a story that would make for an exciting movie. It’s also, I think, a story sharing truth, but some are skeptical of Mikovits, one, because she’s criticizing those in power like Tony Fauci, and two, because she’s making money sharing her story and giving her opinions. But so what? What does that matter? The truth she’s sharing is what should matter most. Right? So many friends and family automatically dismiss these kinds of books, even though the authors fit any “expert” category they may be looking for. All doctors and scientists do NOT agree about either science, health, or understanding the human body. There are so many points of view and the more one reads them, the more one realizes that whatever “science” is, it has a long, long way to go in understanding the complex, God-created creatures that we are.

With politics, especially, we are our own worst enemies sometimes. If the party or political view opposite ours is sharing truth, we often overlook it because the “right” person isn’t saying it, or they are, likely, trying to make our party or side look bad, but truth is truth. I’m not saying motivations don’t matter at all, but sometimes it’s what’s being shared that’s important. We should to some extent get behind anyone willing to investigate and share the truth. We should be happy whoever is sharing the truth. These days as we are staring more and more into the face of outright tyranny, I appreciate anyone revealing the current lies surrounding health, science, politics, and the like. I am thankful for everyone standing up against the tyrants, no matter their background.

These are such strange, often unreal times to be alive. It’s as if all of those cool revolutionary and dystopian movies and stories we used to like so much are all becoming reality. But I rejoice to more and more people waking up. If they can wake up to more common lies from the powers that be, maybe they can and will wake up to the worse lies from the devil. Maybe they will realize that they, too, are not little gods, but are sinners that desperately need Jesus Christ and his perfect life, death, and resurrection to save them from eternal damnation. Look for a fuller review of Plague of Corruption next time.

If you maybe think you’re not getting the truth from the MSM about current events, check out Gab. You can decide for yourself whether the people are sharing the truth or not, but at least you can get a look at the other side you maybe haven’t heard before. Up next time: Full review of Plague of Corruption.
