Richard Who?

We were on holiday in Sydney.  My wife and I had a week in the big city in 2014, before attending a friend’s wedding in southern New South Wales.

While in Sydney, I wanted to visit a particular site of historical significance.  However, it was not marked on the tourist map in our hotel room.

The Harbour Bridge and the Opera House were clearly marked. There were directions to Kings Cross and Oxford Street. Various art galleries and museums were listed. The Rocks was marked, and an aquarium in Darling Harbour. And there were instructions on how to get to Bondi Beach.

But there was nothing about the historical site that I wanted to visit.

A Source of All Knowledge for Tourists?

One morning, I spotted a Tourist Information Centre. That’s it, I thought.  They’ll know for sure where I can find the site I’m looking for.Richard Johnson Square

I went in and approached the counter.  A young woman in her early 20s — one of the Millennial generation — smiled beautifully at me and asked how she might be of assistance.

The conversation went like this…

“I’m looking for a particular historical site here in the heart of Sydney,” I said.

“What is it called?” she asked.

“I’m looking for Richard Johnson Square,” I answered.

I guessed that the woman’s blank facial expression was not a consequence of failing to understand the word “Square”. It had to be linked to the name “Richard Johnson”, so I added…

“You know, Richard Johnson.  He was the chaplain on the First Fleet… in 1788.  He built Sydney’s first church and conducted Sydney’s first school.”

There was a flicker of recognition at the words “First Fleet”, but that young woman — a product of our modern education system — had little awareness of churches and chaplains, and absolutely no knowledge of Richard Johnson.

“Sorry,” she said.  “I’ve never heard of him, and I don’t know where that place is.”

‘Airbrushing’ Out Faith

Richard Johnson was a godly man. He was one of the few individuals who chose of his own free will to leave Britain in 1787 to journey to the Great Southland.  He cared for the officers, sailors, soldiers, and convicts of the First Fleet. He conducted the first recorded service of Christian worship on Australian soil on 3 February 1788. He built the first church building in Australia, and paid for its construction out of his own purse. He opened the first school in Australia, catering to any child regardless of social class or ethnicity whose parents would send them along.

Now, we are a nation that allows raucous hate-filled protests outside the funeral of a leading churchman. Now, we are a nation where state governments introduce laws to undermine the distinctiveness of Christian schools. Now, we are a nation that seeks to celebrate ‘diversity’ in all aspects of society, except when ‘diversity’ features someone of Christian faith.

How tragic it is when a nation forgets God and ‘airbrushes’ faith out of its history!

It was Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, the Russian philosopher and writer, who stated in his Templeton Lecture of 1983,

More than half a century ago, while I was still a child, I recall hearing a number of older people offer the following explanation for the great disasters that had befallen Russia: “Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened.”

Since then I have spent well nigh fifty years working on the history of our Revolution; in the process I have read hundreds of books, collected hundreds of personal testimonies, and have already contributed eight volumes of my own toward the effort of clearing away the rubble left by that upheaval.

But if I were asked today to formulate as concisely as possible the main cause of the ruinous Revolution that swallowed up some sixty million of our people, I could not put it more accurately than to repeat: “Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened.”

Australia, do not forget God! Remember Richard Johnson, and all those like him, who sought — and are seeking — to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the peoples of this country.

PS: We eventually found Richard Johnson Square, thanks to ‘Mr Google’.

West ‘blocked’ Russia-Ukraine peace process – former Israeli PM


Both Moscow and Kiev appeared to have been ready for a ceasefire, Naftali Bennett says

Peace might’ve been agreed between Russia and Ukraine shortly after the start of the conflict, but Kiev’s Western backers blocked the negotiations between the two neighbors, former Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, who mediated those contacts, has said.

Bennet, who gave an almost five-hour-long video interview to Israel’s Channel 12 on Saturday, claimed that his efforts as a middleman came close to succeeding as both Moscow and Kiev appeared to be ready to make concessions and agree to a truce.  

It didn’t happen because “I think there was a legitimate decision by the West to keep striking [Russian President Vladimir] Putin… I mean the more aggressive approach,” he said.

When asked by the host if the US and its allies “blocked” the peace process between Moscow and Kiev, the former PM replied: “Basically, yes. They blocked it.”

“I claim there was a good chance of reaching a ceasefire. But I’m not claiming it was the right thing,” he clarified.

Russia and Ukraine Exchange Dozens of Prisoners

Russia and Ukraine Exchange Dozens of Prisoners

KYIV, Ukraine (AP) – Dozens of Russian and Ukrainian prisoners of war have returned home following a prisoner swap, officials on both sides said Saturday.

Top Ukrainian presidential aide Andriy Yermak said in a Telegram post that 116 Ukrainians were freed.

He said the released POWs include troops who held out in Mariupol during Moscow´s monthslong siege that reduced the southern port city to ruins, as well as guerrilla fighters from the Kherson region and snipers captured during the ongoing fierce battles for the eastern city of Bakhmut.

Russian defence officials, meanwhile, announced that 63 Russian troops had returned from Ukraine following the swap, including some “special category” prisoners whose release was secured following mediation by the United Arab Emirates.

A statement issued Saturday by the Russian Defense Ministry did not provide details about these “special category” captives.

At least three civilians have been killed in Ukraine over the past 24 hours as Russian forces struck nine regions in the country´s south, north and east, according to reports on Ukrainian TV by regional governors on Saturday morning.

Two people were killed and 14 others wounded in Ukraine´s eastern Donetsk region by Russian shelling and missile strikes, local Gov. Pavlo Kyrylenko said in a Telegram update on Saturday morning.

The casualty toll included a man who was killed and seven others who were wounded Friday after Russian missiles slammed into Toretsk, a town in the Donetsk region. Kyrylenko said that 34 houses, two kindergartens, an outpatient clinic, a library, a cultural centre and other buildings were damaged in the strike.

Seven teenagers received shrapnel wounds after an anti-personnel mine exploded late on Friday in the northeastern city of Izium, local Gov. Oleh Syniehubov said on Telegram. He said they were all hospitalized but their lives were not in danger.

Elsewhere, regional Ukrainian officials reported overnight shelling by Russia of border settlements in the northern Sumy region, as well as the town of Marhanets, which neighbours the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant. Kyiv has long accused Moscow of using the plant, which Russian forces seized early in the war, as a base for launching attacks on Ukrainian-held territory across the Dnieper river.

UK Military Would Run Out of Ammo In One Day of Fighting Russia, Warns General

UK Military Would Run Out of Ammo In One Day of Fighting Russia, Warns General

The British military’s supply of ammunition would run dry in just one day in a direct engagement with Russia as a result of years of spending cuts to the nation’s defence, a former top general has warned.

General Sir Richard Barrons, who formerly served as the Joint Forces chief, claimed that spending cuts have depleted the British military to such an extent that, in a hot war with Russia, the UK would run out of ammunition and artillery shells within just one day.

According to research conducted by The Sun newspaper, the United Kingdom’s ammunition plants would need at least one year to produce the amount of shells currently used by the Ukrainians in their conflict with Russia.

“This is truly shocking. But it is true. And we must fix it,” General Barrons wrote. “The UK spends more on defence than any EU ally and our brave Armed Forces have long been one of Britain’s most influential levers around the world.”

“Yet for decades they have been hollowed out by spending cuts,” he added, saying that the government would need to spend an additional £3 billion per year on the military to fall in line with the top level of the NATO alliance.

The Ministry of Defence, for its part, said that while ammunition levels are “highly classified”, it was boosting spending on ammunition stockpiles to “more than pre-invasion levels” with an extra £560 million earmarked by the Treasury.

The MoD also suggested that judging Britain’s readiness by the current conflict’s standards was disingenuous.

“The war in Ukraine is an example of Soviet doctrine which uses vast quantities of artillery. We do not, nor ever have, used artillery in such methods, so to try and draw such conclusions is misleading,” they claimed.

Meanwhile, Defence Secretary Ben Wallace also said this week that the United Kingdom’s defence apparatus has been “hollowed out and underfunded” — although he neglected to mention who was responsible for this.

“There’s a recognition that as the world gets more dangerous, unstable, defence should continue to get a growing proportion of spend, we can then debate how much that proportion should be,” he said.

In the first seven years after the so-called Conservative Party came into power after 2010, annual defence spending fell by £6.6 billion in real terms — a reduction of 14.6 per cent compared to the 2009-10 budget.

While slashing the military budget, the supposedly right-wing government has poured billions into left-wing projects such green energy and foreign aid, ironically including money for other nations’ militaries.

However, last year the government finally promised to increase military spending, pledging £7 billion in extra funding for the 2024-25 fiscal year, which should see defence spending rise to £51.7 billion.

Despite the apparent lack of military readiness, war hawks in the Conservative Party such as former prime minister Boris Johnson and the head of the House of Commons Defence Select Committee, Tobias Ellwood, have both called this week for Britain to double down on its support for Ukraine, with Mr Johnson calling for the government to send fighter jets to the Ukrainians.

Ellwood, meanwhile, said that Britain should engage “directly” with Russia in Ukraine rather than letting the local fighting force “do all the work”, despite noting that currently the British military is in a “dire” state, with 10,000 fewer troops than necessary.

“It is up to the Treasury and Number 10 to recognise the world is changing — we are now at war in Europe, we need to move to a war footing,” Ellwood said.

Wagners trying to recruit US soldiers to defeat NWO

Wagners trying to recruit US soldiers to defeat NWO

By Alexandra Bruce

This latest video from Greg Reese succinctly describes the 200-year subterfuge campaign that has destroyed the US Government from within and how a Russian paramilitary company, the Wagner Group has put out a recruitment advertisement, appealing to patriotic American soldiers to join forces with the only country on the planet that is currently fighting the New World Order: Russia.

The destruction of America from within has been going on for over 200 years.

Seven years after the American Revolution, the Paris Peace Treaty of 1783 established the King of England as the Prince-Elector of the United States and America continued paying debts to the Crown.

During the War of 1812, the British torched the White House.

The Act of 1871 created a separate corporate government for the District of Columbia, allowing it to operate with its own laws, outside of the US Constitution, creating the Corporation of the United States and a new city-state for the Old World Order, with its financial capital in the City of London, its religious capital in Vatican City and its military capital in the District of Columbia.

These city-states have their own sovereignty.

In 1913, the Federal Reserve Act gave full control of America’s wealth to a private corporation beholden to the City of London.

During the Nuremburg Trials, only 19 were found guilty, while hundreds of Nazi war criminals were given jobs in the United States Military-Industrial Complex.

If you were to search online for just about any Middle Eastern country in the 1950s, you will see what the region looked like, before the British Petroleum, the CIA and the Mossad turned it into a Hellhole of radical Islamic rule.

Placing psychotic puppets in power, the Old World Order then used it as a catalyst for the War Against Terror, which was then used to destabilize the region and create the catalyst for mass-migration into Europe and America.

Many Americans refuse to recognize the endless crimes against humanity being committed by our own government. And so, by default they blindly support it – even when the American government is caught funding bioweapons labs around the Russian border. Many Americans turn a blind eye.

And so now, the majority of the world stands with Russia and see America as the main threat against humanity.

A new video produced by Russia’s Wagner private military is now recruiting Americans to join them in their fight against the United States, pointing out how the United States has become a force of evil and is no longer what our Forefathers intended it to be.

If Americans were as righteous as we think we are, then we would not stand for such a corrupt government wreaking havoc on the rest of the world in our name.

Instead, most of us are content fighting each other and turning a blind eye.
