Dilemma for Kate? Does the Duchess show solidarity with #TimesUp or stick to royal rules?

The Duchess, who will attend this year’s British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) ceremony with her husband, the Duke of Cambridge, is about to be landed in a diplomatic minefield. Actresses are gearing up to don black dresses in support of the #TimesUp movement, a campaign against sexual harassment prompted by the #MeToo phenomenon.

The move comes after the Academy Awards in the US saw only a handful of women ignore the call of solidarity by wearing lighter shades. Kate is faced with a crisis: show solidarity or keep with the royal family’s policy of avoiding political statements or comment.

Kensington Palace told RT that they would not comment, but they did confirm that Meghan Markle – Prince Harry’s fiancée – would not be in attendance, only the Duchess and Duke.

A letter to BAFTA guests, published by film industry magazine the Hollywood Reporter, has laid out plans from a “collective of UK based female film and television industry leaders,”  for a “physical and visual representation of our solidarity with people across all industries who have experienced sexual harassment and abuse or have been held back due to an imbalance in power.”

“Here in the UK, more than half of all women and nearly two-thirds of women aged 18 to 24 have experienced sexual harassment at work,” the letter said.

“And we hope that those of us who are privileged enough to have a platform, can use it to raise awareness of the experiences of women beyond our industry, whose experiences are often silenced and marginalized.

“At this point, we are keeping things under wraps as the UK-side movement shapes up and we’ll have some exciting plans to announce soon. We wanted to personally reach out to you at this point to let you know of the colour code and we will be in touch again with more information, including talking points on why we’re wearing black.”

While stars have not publicly vowed to wear black to the BAFTAs, Harry Potter star Emma Watson all-but confirmed it with a single, simple tweet.

BAFTA CEO Amanda Berry told the Telegraph that awards organizers are braced for speeches about the Hollywood harassment scandal. “It often has (been used as a platform) in the past, I think in different years there have been different issues,” she said.

“People obviously feel it’s a very powerful platform. The film awards go out globally so that makes it even more powerful, so we never say to people don’t say anything, please just thank the crew or whatever it is. Because if somebody feels passionately about it, they are going to say it. There has been a lot of conversation to date and obviously that conversation continues, awards season shines a very bright spotlight on that conversation.”

The BAFTAs will take place on February 18 at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

The Dilemma of Raising a Child to Live In the New World Order


I have written countless articles where I accuse Google as being the enemy of democracy. Google is  more powerful than nations. They are treating the world like any conquering army. They are erasing history, altering culture, stiffling legitimate dissent, strangling economic competition,monopolizing the Internet, hacking elections and relentlessly spying on American citizens.

Beyond 1984

Google has gone beyond Orwell’s 1984. They are in the midst of creating a “Blue Pill” reality. Google is the matrix. Google has created the cage where the young people of America are growing up. It is the cage that people my generation resists because we were essentially born free. My generation respects our collective innate spirit of autonomy that the Lord blessed us with. However, our younger generation has been raised in the Google-created cage and they do not know true freedom and are unable to see the loss of free will that is a central part of our God-created spirit.

The Despot, John McCain, Taught Me About Freedom

When John McCain tried to steal my community’s property without compensation, he awakened my spirit of self-preservation and ultimately freedom. When I discovered what this demagogue and his kind had in store for the American people as one of the Deep State’s chief minions, I opposed McCain with every fiber in my being.

My beloved wife had a difficult time absorbing all that I was learning in the false matrix created by the globalists which is dominated by Google.  I am sure there were times when my wife wondered if I was going to lose my mind. However, as I discovered, my talented, highly intelligent and beautiful wife and myself were merely on two different learning curves. My wife was raised by two wonderful parents who taught her to be independent and my wife was not raised in the proverbial Google-created  cage and could think for herself. Today, my wife educates me about much of what is really going in the world outside of our false reality as shaped by the CNN’s of the world.

The Fruit Does Not Fall Very Far From the Tree

My son is as independent at his mother and father and summarily rejects all elements of arbitrary control over his freedom. However, when I compare my son’s awareness and desire to be in control of his destiny to that of  many of his friends, he is in rarified air. My fear for him is that he will get crushed by the ruling authority if my generation is not successful against the Google type entities that control the New World Order. For example, most young adults favor socialism as their preferred from of government and if they have their way, Bernie Sanders will be the next President. In other words, many of son’s cohorts are already enslaved as slavery first begins in the mind.

It is in this sense that my generation will be the last generation to know true freedom. Respect for the Constitution, the rule of law and our nation’s Chrisitan traditions are all fading into the sunset and I am experiencing cognitive dissonance as I cannot fathom what motivates people to vote for such nefarious people as Hillary Clinton.

The young people have in large part forsaken the Lord. They are self-entitled and one ruler away from acting out, in real life, a Lord of the Flies type of country where dissenters are disposed of and the hive mentality reigns supreme. And to all you parents who have raised intelligent and autonomous children, you, me, have raised our children to not fit into what is coming. And what is coming? It is the Mark of the Beast which I have documented as well as my concerns that Google is that central authority and technology that will usher in the Mark of the Beast.

My Son Is Not Anyone’s Cannon Fodder

When my son was young, I was writing counseling courses for a post-secondary institution where I met a wonderful person who happened to be one of the Deans of the University. He and I bemoaned our ruling class who thought nothing of sending our young people off to die in a banker’s created war of occupation. We swore to each other that we would never send our sons off to such a conflict no matter what we had to do including the leaving of our country.


Today, all parents are forced to confront the same kind of reality. However, the stakes are much higher. It is no longer just a question of letting your child be sacrificed in a banker’s war. It is now a question of letting your children have their souls compromised. By teaching our children to “fit in” to the ruling regime in this country, and I am not speaking of Trump, we are teaching our children to compromise their Christian principles. However, I know history and I know that if I do not teach my son to “blend in” and become of the members of the Satanic Deep State, Google-dominated hive members, he will live a life of terrible persecution and worse. In short, I often wonder if the independent spirit we impart to our offspring will the reason that will not end their lives in an old age home, but in a FEMA camp.

I was once told, after I had just become a father, that the hardest thing to do in life was to let go of your children as they grow up. I found that was not the case at all. The hardest thing about being a father is to let our children go and live in a world dominated by the Googles’ on this planet. And who controls these entitites such as Google? It is none other than Satan, himself. The next stop on this planet is the Mark of the Beast.

My generation picked a helluva time to become parents.
