The United States seems to be in commotion right now. Large parts of the world are also going back into lockdown. Tensions are very, very high.
I want to say this (for myself more than anything) and I need to say it before I forget it again. The Leftist aren't pure evil. The Right isn't the ideal party that would solve all the worlds problems.
Each side is filled with human beings. And they have strong beliefs on the best way to go about things. When we start labeling people, to any degree, we stop seeing them as human and when we stop seeing another person as human, we can more easily justify using and abusing them. Only the Lord can truly show you someones heart.
The capital 'T' Truth is, the government isn't the enemy, your siblings or parents or church leaders or former boss or your co-worker isn't the enemy...but you do have one. And the enemy is relentless in the war on your heart and soul. He is ancient and he never, ever sleeps.He appeared in the Garden of Eden to our first parents and then later to Cain, tempting Cain's pride and desire to be right. Satan patiently and meticulously set up Cain for failure...for that single moment when Cain's offering wasn't accepted by the Lord. In Moses 5:21 it says, "and Satan knew this" meaning he knew Cain would become wroth:
21 But unto Cain, and to his offering, he had not respect. Now Satan knew this, and it pleased him. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.
It was a calculated plan....Cain was set-up. And now you need to remember, you are living in that same calculated plan.
The Lord reminds Cain that if he Cain does well, he will be accepted and The Lord reminds Cain that Satan desires to have him (v. 23). Cain decided to hearken to the lies Satan propagated and it lead to an ancient way of doing business, of deceiving the masses into following in and trusting another voice.
Satan said to Cain: "Swear by thy throat..." and he taught Cain ancient secrets which lead to power and wealth beyond comprehension. And Cain taught it to his brethren (v.29) and Cain became "Master Mahan...the master of this great secret and he gloried in his wickedness." (v. 31)
In Ether 8, Moroni tells us that the secret combinations still exist in his time and will exist in ours.
18 And it came to pass that they formed a secret combination, even as they of old; which combination is most abominable and wicked above all, in the sight of God;
19 For the Lord worketh not in secret combinations, neither doth he will that man should shed blood, but in all things hath forbidden it, from the beginning of man.
20 And now I, Moroni, do not write the manner of their oaths and combinations, for it hath been made known unto me that they are had among all people...
And now to the purpose of this post: It is to remind you that you have an enemy and everything taking place on TV right now is nothing more than a distraction keeping you from turning your heart, mind, and will fully over to the Lord.
Because there are secret combinations had among all people, I would be a slothful servant if I didn't take the time to point out that yes, Trump may say the most cringe worthy things and it's easy to get caught up in that, but what comes out of his mouth is peanuts compared to what is transpiring all around you.
It is easier to skim what I write next...or discount this post with a label that tells you the evil can't run that deep or be that orchestrated. And you most certainly can do that. Or you can pause to consider if Moroni was telling the truth...that these ancient secret combinations are had among all people with the purpose to steal, kill, and destroy.
Did you know that only 6 companies own all of the media? I used to think that CNN was its own company. I was surprised to learn that it is owned by TimeWarner. TimeWarner owns companies like Hulu, Warner Brothers, HBO and many, many more. So if I want to program the masses into believing something, as the head of one of these six companies, I can do it through the movies they watch and filter the same message into the news they receive thus creating the reality we believe.

Let's look at the news and who is telling us some of the stories we hear. Let's start with Anderson Cooper of CNN. Did you know his mother was Gloria Vanderbilt? Here's a childhood photo of Anderson with his mother on their bed.
8 And the husbands and fathers of those women and children they have slain; and they feed the women upon the flesh of their husbands, and the children upon the flesh of their fathers; and no water, save a little, do they give unto them.
9 And notwithstanding this great abomination of the Lamanites, it doth not exceed that of our people in Moriantum. For behold, many of the daughters of the Lamanites have they taken prisoners; and after depriving them of that which was most dear and precious above all things, which is chastity and virtue—
10 And after they had done this thing, they did murder them in a most cruel manner, torturing their bodies even unto death; and after they have done this, they devour their flesh like unto wild beasts, because of the hardness of their hearts; and they do it for a token of bravery.
Did you know that New York City passed a law last year that allows women to abort their baby even up until the moment deliver if the mother feels her health is at risk? That means a woman can be in labor, 9 months pregnant and choose to abort the baby, and it's legal.
