Random Trilogy Snippets, Part Three: Ah, Galas….Where the Rich and Famous Get to ‘Dress’ in Their Hypocrisy

Time to post a new random snippet set as two weeks have gone by since the last post. And, thanks to that Metropolitan Museum Gala in NYC a week or so ago, highlighted by a Congresswoman known as ‘AOC’ wearing a dress with the words ‘Tax the Rich’ on it, I had found my snippet topic. This ‘gala’ featured fashion items worn by filthy rich celebrities and other elites that wore clothing adorned with touches of moral degradation disguised as ‘avant-guard’ ‘art’ that would have made the ancient capitals of moral degradation, Sodom and Gomorrah, cringe with envy. The reason this dress at this event caught my attention was because AOC is a premier hypocrite of today, whether in Congress trying to take guns away from law-abiding Americans with the Bill of Rights-Constitutional Right to Bear Arms while she has the wealth to hire loads of body guards, to her so-called ‘Green New Deal’ which will take land and wealth away from us ‘little people’ for the sake of ‘sustainable development’…in other words, for the sake of the rich and her elitist friends so they can, as is said in one of the two snippets I’ll post, ‘plunder nature.’ All part of the so-called ‘Great Reset,’ doncha know, where us ‘little people’ will ‘own nothing and be happy,’ as Klaus Schwab’s saying goes.

And it wasn’t just this gala, but others in the past, where filthy rich elites and celebrities wore furs of endangered wildlife, ate rare endangered marine life only they can afford, and toasted their ‘projects’ to ‘save the whales’ or ‘save’ whatever wildlife— after they went to Africa and hunted, say, endangered lions or whatever. All the while doing whatever they could to prevent us ‘little people’ from getting hunting and fishing licenses, in order to ‘save the environment.’ Folks, it isn’t that these folks shouldn’t be allowed to hunt whatever or wear whatever or eat whatever; it is their damning hypocrisy, their ‘for me but not for thee’ ‘virtue-signaling’ that causes me to write to expose their hypocrisy!

Now, onto the snippets, both from Chapter Eight of The Prophesied Band. However, the second snippet is from the original 1998 published version, and was one of the ‘deleted scenes’ taken out of the 2019 three-novels-in-one trilogy.

Random Trilogy Snippets, Part One: Perilous Times

Perilous times? It sure seems that way! Just yesterday, a major hurricane invaded a part of the state of Louisiana where family members live and I pray they got through it safely. Just a week or so ago, a war that the US never should have gotten involved with in the first place, ended in a strange and somewhat infamous fashion as have so many other wars in this country have ended since the times of Alexander the Great! So-called “pandemics” which seem to have been created for nefarious purposes as if we’re living in a sci-fi or a dystopian thriller scenario. Child, adult, human, sex, whatever trafficking under the guise of ‘immigration,’ and not just in the US, either, but worldwide mostly for profit or other evil purposes. Earthquakes, typhoons, tsunamis, volcano eruptions, fires across northern California and Russia…as desert-mountain far west Texas hasn’t seen this much rain and flooding since 2004! Okay, okay, 2017…. Corrupt governments that only a criminal psychopath could love. And more….and will everyone soon be required to get ‘your papers, please’ just to travel to see loved ones or work or go to school or whatever?

And speaking of ‘your papers, please’….

The second novel of The Prodigal Band Trilogy, The Prophesied Band, goes into this ‘papers please’ notion. This novel, as stated in a previous post on ‘how’ the trilogy was written and why, was completed around the time that many thought was indeed perilous, that time of government actions against so-called ‘right-wing militias’ and other ‘rebellious’ groups such as the Branch Davidians. This mid- and late-90s period was when various alternative media organs warned against globalism and their so-called ‘new world order’ (mentioned by former president George HW Bush in one of his speeches) run mostly by ‘one-world-government’ organs like the United Nations. Perilous? Some Christian groups even believed that the ‘end times’ were coming quickly,  and, further, various evangelical types began harping on ‘the rapture,’ including the authors of a fictional novel series called ‘Left Behind.’

That was then, but this is now, with a new paradigm called ‘the Great Reset.’ Do I even need to regurgitate the saying about owning nothing and being happy? (And is this saying copyrighted? Bwahahahahahahaha!). So that whether it is ‘pandemics’ or screwed-up economics or political skullduggery or wars and rumors of wars or crazy weather or earth-shattering events, these do seem like perilous times. ‘Papers, please’ or not.
