We have arrived at a place of national insanity. There have been many individuals who have received great honor, being seen as great achievers in this once free nation. I have watched this for decades and very few will speak the Truth. It would not be politically correct to point out the "real, eternal truths of those individuals". However, some of us still think them, like myself. They point out their version of the truth, that which fits their political/cultural agenda, making them false heros.
Oh how to communicate a differing view? There were several presidents who were seen as great, but their private lives were filled with the sins of the flesh. There have been several notable sports figures, many rejecting their given names and taking on new names of false prophets. There have been notable musicians who have done the same. There have been famous preachers, actually many, even in the civil rights movement, who were great in their stands but were involved in the same sins of the flesh like we see in the world. They call evil as good and good as evil, as it is written.
The worst of all, for me, is the preacher who has a calling, known nationally, who sleeps with prostitutes or is fleecing the sheep of their hard earned income, promising great eternal rewards for their fiat. Jim
America is Under Attack by 187 Groups Funded by George Soros
Notorious globalist billionaire George Soros has gone on the record threatening to “take down President Trump” and promising an audience at the World Economic Forum in Davos that the New World Order are making the necessary preparations to completely and utterly obliterate every single Republican plan.
Soros is doing this the only way he knows how – by throwing his dirty money around, sponsoring hate groups, protestors, and NGOs, attempting to subvert the course of democracy and eradicate the silent majority.
Some of the names on this list will shock you… Abortion groups, open borders advocates, immigrant activists, groups to change the way we vote, socialist health care, climate change, “Catholics”, Socialists and Communists.
Truth & Action reports: They’re all here. 187 groups being used to destroy America, thanks to funding by billionaire George Soros. Here are the groups who are using Trump’s election as an excuse to take down America:
Advancement Project: This organization works to organize “communities of color” into politically cohesive units while disseminating its leftist worldviews and values as broadly as possible by way of a sophisticated communications department.
Air America Radio: Now defunct, this was a self-identified “liberal” radio network.
All of Us or None: This organization seeks to change voting laws — which vary from state to state — so as to allow ex-inmates, parolees, and even current inmates to cast their ballots in political elections.
Alliance for Justice: Best known for its activism vis a vis the appointment of federal judges, this group consistently depicts Republican judicial nominees as “extremists.”
America Coming Together: Soros played a major role in creating this group, whose purpose was to coordinate and organize pro-Democrat voter-mobilization programs.
America Votes: Soros also played a major role in creating this group, whose get-out-the-vote campaigns targeted likely Democratic voters.
America’s Voice: This open-borders group seeks to promote “comprehensive” immigration reform that includes a robust agenda in favor of amnesty for illegal aliens.
American Bar Association Commission on Immigration Policy: This organization “opposes laws that require employers and persons providing education, health care, or other social services to verify citizenship or immigration status.”
New World Order's Stealthy Tool of Subversion: NGOs
American Bridge 21st Century: This Super PAC conducts opposition research designed to help Democratic political candidates defeat their Republican foes.
American Civil Liberties Union: This group opposes virtually all post-9/11 national security measures enacted by the U.S. government. It supports open borders, has rushed to the defense of suspected terrorists and their abettors, and appointed former New Left terrorist Bernardine Dohrn to its Advisory Board.
American Constitution Society for Law and Policy: This Washington, DC-based think tank seeks to move American jurisprudence to the left by recruiting, indoctrinating, and mobilizing young law students, helping them acquire positions of power. It also provides leftist Democrats with a bully pulpit from which to denounce their political adversaries.
American Family Voices: This group creates and coordinates media campaigns charging Republicans with wrongdoing.
American Federation of Teachers: After longtime AFT President Albert Shanker died in in 1997, he was succeeded by Sandra Feldman, who slowly “re-branded” the union, allying it with some of the most powerful left-wing elements of the New Labor Movement. When Feldman died in 2004, Edward McElroy took her place, followed by Randi Weingarten in 2008. All of them kept the union on the leftward course it had adopted in its post-Shanker period.
American Friends Service Committee: This group views the United States as the principal cause of human suffering around the world. As such, it favors America’s unilateral disarmament, the dissolution of American borders, amnesty for illegal aliens, the abolition of the death penalty, and the repeal of the Patriot Act.
American Immigration Council: This non-profit organization is a prominent member of the open-borders lobby. It advocates expanded rights and amnesty for illegal aliens residing in the U.S.
American Immigration Law Foundation: This group supports amnesty for illegal aliens, on whose behalf it litigates against the U.S. government.
American Independent News Network: This organization promotes “impact journalism” that advocates progressive change.
American Institute for Social Justice: AISJ’s goal is to produce skilled community organizers who can “transform poor communities” by agitating for increased government spending on city services, drug interdiction, crime prevention, housing, public-sector jobs, access to healthcare, and public schools.
American Library Association: This group has been an outspoken critic of the Bush administration’s War on Terror — most particularly, Section 215 of the USA Patriot Act, which it calls “a present danger to the constitutional rights and privacy rights of library users.”
The American Prospect, Inc.: This corporation trains and mentors young leftwing journalists, and organizes strategy meetings for leftist leaders.
Amnesty International: This organization directs a grossly disproportionate share of its criticism for human rights violations at the United States and Israel.
Applied Research Center: Viewing the United States as a nation where “structural racism” is deeply “embedded in the fabric of society,” ARC seeks to “build a fair and equal society” by demanding “concrete change from our most powerful institutions.”
Arab American Institute Foundation: The Arab American Institute denounces the purportedly widespread civil liberties violations directed against Arab Americans in the post-9/11 period, and characterizes Israel as a brutal oppressor of the Palestinian people.

Europe Prepares For War As New Signs Point To Summer-2019 Takedown Of Hillary Clinton By President Trump
By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers
A stunning new Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that yesterday’s signing by German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron of a treaty to begin the creation of European Union Army to protect their leftist-socialist regimes now threatened by populist-nationalists, is due to their growing fears of how their peoples will respond once President Donald Trump begins arresting Hillary Clinton and her “Deep State” allies—an action SVR intelligence analysts believe will begin occurring before the Summer of this year ends—as evidenced by the mysterious delay by Trump’s Justice Department of sentencing until July-2019 of Carl Ferrer—the key witness against Hillary Clinton and Democrat Party mega-donor James Larkin who, along with his also under indictment partner Michael Lacey, ran the notorious, but now FBI seized, sex trafficking website Backpage—whose illegal profits were laundered through Clinton’s law firm Perkins Coie, who, in turn, used these monies to pay the British spy company that created the made up Trump-Russia Dossier—except for the $2.9 million discovered in a once secret Backpage-Perkins Coie bank account a US Federal Court just ordered seized on 15 January 2019. [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]
Sex trafficking site Backpage CEO Carl Ferrer (above) becomes main Trump witness against…
…Hillary Clinton-Democrat Party mega-donor Jim Larkin (left) and his partner Mike Lacey (right).
According to this report, during the course of the 2016 US Presidential Election, the SVR extensively documented how Hillary Clinton and the Obama Regime conspired in a plot to destroy Donald Trump—whose most basic outlines involved Clinton funneling millions-of-dollars to her Perkins Coie law firm—that Perkins Coie then funneled to the Washington D.C. political opposition firm Fusion GPS—with Fusion GPS then funneling these monies to former British MI6 agent Christopher Steele to create the made up Trump-Russia Dossier—and whose sole purpose of Steele testified under oath in a London court was to give Clinton a means to contest her election loss to Trump.
Once former MI6 agent Christopher Steele finished completing Hillary Clinton’s made up Trump-Russia Dossier, this report details, it was given to Perkins Coie attorney Michael Sussmann—who was a former US Department of Justice attorney and close friend of top FBI attorney James Baker, who is now under criminal investigation for his crimes against Trump—and whose sordid attempt to bring down Trump reveals:
When at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.
That’s what Hillary Clinton’s machine did in 2016, eventually getting the FBI to bite on an uncorroborated narrative that Donald Trump and Russia were trying to hijack the presidential election.
Between July and October 2016, Clinton-connected lawyers, emissaries and apologists made more than a half-dozen overtures to U.S. officials, each tapping a political connection to get suspect evidence into FBI counterintelligence agents’ hands.
In each situation, the overture was uninvited. And as the election drew closer, the point of contact moved higher up the FBI chain.
It was a “classic case of information saturation” designed to inject political opposition research into a counterintelligence machinery that should have suspected a political dirty trick was underway.
Michael Sussmann from the Perkins Coie law firm, which represented the Clinton campaign and Democratic Party, came to personally deliver FBI chief attorney James Baker dirt on Trump.
Sussmann’s firm paid Glenn Simpson’s Fusion GPS opposition-research firm to hire British intelligence operative Christopher Steele to create the now-infamous dossier suggesting Trump and Moscow colluded during the 2016 election.
By the time Sussmann reached out, Steele’s dossier already was inside the FBI. Sussmann augmented it with cyber evidence that he claimed showed a further connection between the GOP campaign and Russian President Vladimir Putin. Some was put on a thumb drive, according to Baker.
Baker’s detailed account illustrates how a political connection — Sussmann and Baker knew each other — was leveraged to get anti-Trump research to FBI leaders.
By late 2017, this report continues, President Trump and his loyal forces began to unravel this vast Hillary Clinton plot against him—and that led, in October-2017, to the Campaign Legal Center (CLC) filing a complaint with the Federal Election Commission detailing the violations Clinton and her coup plotters committed—but that the Federal Election Commission has mysteriously yet to rule on for the past 15 months.
Bye Bye Trade War? China Plans $1 Trillion Buying Spree to Reduce US Trade Deficit
CCN•January 18, 2019
xi jinping us-china trade war
China has extended the olive branch back to the United States by offering a path to eliminate Washington’s burgeoning trade deficit with the country, Bloomberg reported Friday. The news comes less than a day after The Wall Street Journal reported that the Trump administration was considering lifting tariffs amid the ongoing trade war.
China Proposes Six-Year Buying Spree
Citing sources familiar with the matter, Bloomberg reported Friday that China has offered to significantly boost its purchase of U.S. goods over a six-year period in an effort to re-balance trade between the two superpowers. By increasing its annual imports from the United States, Beijing would reduce its trade surplus to zero by 2024. That would require a spending boost of more than $1 trillion.
Last year, Beijing’s surplus with the U.S. stood at $323 billion.
Trade War Truce?
Trade talks between the U.S. and China are progressing at breakneck speed, a strong sign that both sides are looking to end the tariff dispute before March. That’s when the 90-day truce agreed to by President Donald Trump and China’s Xi Jinping is set to expire.
U.S. officials are reportedly considering lifting tariffs on Chinese imports to give Beijing a bigger incentive to negotiate a fairer trade deal. Last year, the Trump administration announced duties on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods and threatened additional tariffs if Beijing responded. Tensions have simmered down since December when the leaders of both countries met face-to-face on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Last week marked the first face-to-face meetings between Chinese and American trade delegates since the G20 summit. The meetings, which went a day longer than planned, resulted in China agreeing to purchase more U.S. farm and agricultural commodities. Chinese officials have also agreed to grant wider access to mainland markets to U.S. firms.
Several risks stand in the way of a comprehensive end to the trade war. Chief among them is the ongoing drama involving Huawei Technologies Corp. U.S. federal prosecutors are following up on civil lawsuits against the tech giant by launching a wider investigation into the company. According to The Wall Street Journal, the investigation has reached an advanced stage and could lead to an indictment shortly.

The “Right to Repair” Movement Is Fighting Planned Obsolescence
Posted on January 11, 2019environment
By Meadow Clark
When planned obsolescence goes too far, the people of the Right to Repair want the right to…repair things. They aren’t fighting back with pitchforks and torches, but rather, screwdrivers and torch lights.
As a prepper, having supplies that last and are able to be repaired can only be a good thing. And part of the reasons it’s so difficult to reduce our consumerism is that everything just keeps breaking on us.
So, what do climate change regulations, so-called efficiency products, and planned obsolescence all have in common?
All three are crashing into each other and making everyone miserable and poorer.
What is planned obsolescence?
Planned obsolescence means the deliberate altering of a product to break down at a certain point (often right after the warranty is up) forcing the consumer to buy another. Another aspect of planned obsolescence is designing the product to prevent repair either by gluing parts together or using obscure parts and not allowing the sale of spare parts. In many cases, the products are too cheaply made to warrant money spent on repairs, so millions of products end up in the dump, making people wonder why they buy things in the first place.
are the same type that trade their first wife in on a new trophy wife, then another and another.
I'm not sure if trophy wives come with a 'Use by' date, spare parts, extended warranties (outside of prenups) or even are aware they are totally disposable furniture but like a cheap glitzy watch, they have a half life.
Beez is about to find out how costly First Wife Planned Obsolescence is.
Around $70 billion by latest tally
Trophy wives are for the rich and famous, for the Follywood and the politicians. You will have a difficult time finding a trophy within the poor and homeless. Even King David obtained a trophy wife.
I do have a view. Long ago, back in high school, before your time there, I saw a trophy coming down the hallway. I would almost get the shakes, just looking at her. I could not even think clearly when she was in the class room. I would think "the only guys that get babes like her are the good looking ones, with a great car and fine clothes like AGXIIK, but not me."
Well, I still have her and in my mind, she is still 17,beautiful and still enjoy every single day, having her as a trophy. My advise to the older men, keep the wife of your youth or the next one may be what you actually deserve. Jim
While having coffee and a snack at our local bakery on a blustery spring day in Mammoth I looked up to see cleavage and as my eyes scrolled up I realized I was caught when I saw those beautiful blue eyes enjoying the fact I was checking her out. She was sitting with a friend and we were introduced,,,,,,
Needless to say we are still happily married, the first for each of us. My trophy wife and soul mate have enjoyed 34 years together and are looking for another 25-30. Yes she is a keeper.
The picture at the top is what I can see during my daily exercise and recreation program. (when the sun is out) The lake below of which only a small portion is in view is where we will now recreate and fish with our new pontoon boat starting this coming spring. I was kind of surprised by the local ski area making #2 on any list.
It sure beats looking at the concrete jungle and having tea and crumpets in some over priced coffee house.

Winter Park Resort becomes a winter wonderland in the evening
Well, the Holidays are over. The caroling is over. The end-of-year merrymaking is over. And so - perhaps mercifully to some - the Holiday gorging and sweet treats and restaurants and huge dinners at relatives' and friends' homes is over, as well. But for many of us, the extra pounds remain! So now it's time - as it is every January - to do something about it, and to get back to our normal, pre-Holiday weights. If you love skiing, you know that flying - or even going slowly - down a mountain in a winter-wonderland setting is a great way to take off those Holiday pounds. And, since we're only about halfway through ski season, what better place to do it than at a great ski resort? Here are my Top 5 favorites for the second half of ski-season 2019!

It was a few days before the All Star game in San Diego. My wife was getting ready to go to work at Jenny Craig. I was boarding the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile with Jeff and Jer, the top 2 drive time DJs on B100. Our plan was to cruise La Jolla and Mira Mar to find me a date that Friday night. It was Monday 7AM when we launched from the studio for a 2 hour quest for a winsome lass to join me for dinner at Hotel Del in Coronado.
It was 90 minutes into my quest when my future wife, knowing only that a banker was riding shotgun in the Weinermobile and she decided To Heck With Work I'm gonna chase that dude down just to find out what's what
She raced around La Jolla missing the big orange 23 ft weiner on wheels when she finally trapped me in the parking lot of a cheese cake shop. I was kind of surprised that she hunted me down but what the heck, second prize was 4 tickets to the all star game. There was a catch in that prize
But she found me sufficiently appealing to trust the first date--limo to the Hotel Del and the after party. I was dressed in a tux for the dinner, she in a white gown It was pretty cool.
From that point on I was mostly a schlub driving around meeting my clients in my hot rod Lincoln. She found out my secrets PDQ, including Whopper Jr wrappers and KFC boxes in the back of my car .But not letting that stand in her way, she and I went into business together.
Did I say schlub? and then some
She figgered I was a keeper, sort of, and cleaned me up. She was the kind of girl who would take your heart yetjerk a knot in my tail if I got out of line
My trophy wife; with me for 27 years and still going strong. She is still a looker and I am still her schlub; her driver, manservant, body guard, cork dork, killer of bugs, her high reach equipment and a few other assignations that go with being her man
I am glad to know we both got really lucky in love

President Trump Blueprint For Military Takeover Of America Goes On Full Display In Venezuela
With 2018 being only the second year in the past century not to see a nation’s government toppled in a coup d’état, a grimly worded new Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that 2019 will not be listed among them—and is due to President Trump and his nationalist-populist allies having just launched a coup against the leftist-socialist nation of Venezuela—that Russia has just warned is a gross and blatant violation of the 1975 Helsinki Final Act accords, and its, likewise, warning the US military not interfere in Venezuela’s affairs—but whose truest meaning behind this coup provides Trump the blueprint he would need to destroy the leftist-socialists forces in his own nation. [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]
President Donald Trump begins coup plot destruction of leftist-socialist nation of Venezuela on 23 January 2019
According to this report, the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela is a country on the northern coast of South America consisting of a continental landmass and a large number of small islands and islets in the Caribbean Sea that has the largest oil reserves in the world (the United States is the production leader, but its reserves are only 10% of what Venezuela has)—and whose leftist-socialist government is presided over by President Nicolás Maduro.
Following the leftist-socialist policies of his now deceased predecessor Hugo Chavez, this report continues, President Maduro created the largest in the world “cradle-to-grave” state that ensured its citizens free and unlimited access to everything from healthcare, free housing, education to guaranteed living wages—but because of, by 2016 saw this “socialist paradise” country collapsing into an economic tailspin created by a perfect storm of fiscal mismanagement and plummeting oil prices—and that today now sees them dealing with skyrocketing inflation that has left many unable to afford food, and malnutrition is soaring—whose daily departures from rose to an estimated 5,500 people by the end of 2018, many citing hunger, and the UN estimating that the number of Venezuelans living outside their homeland could reach 5.3 million by the end of 2019—all of which has caused aid agencies to warn they need $738 million to tackle the humanitarian emergency in 16 countries now home to large numbers of Venezuelans.
Though the US mainstream propaganda media has maintained a near constant media blackout on the “socialist paradise” state of Venezuela due to their fears of the American people being able to see how cruel and horrible these types of leftist regimes really are when everything is given away for free and no one is left to pay the bills, this report notes, this same type of deliberate blindness cannot be said about President Trump—who last year began coup plot discussions with rebel military officers in Venezuela—and today has warned that “all military options” are on the table against this nation he declares is a threat on par with both North Korea and Iran.
Moving quickly from rhetoric to action, this report further details, President Trump, just hours ago, shockingly declared that Juan Guaidó is the new president of Venezuela—who for the past few weeks, since 5 January, served as the President of the National Assembly of Venezuela—a position that placed him third in line of succession after President Maduro and Vice President Delcy Rodríguez—both of whom, though, he completely ignored yesterday when proclaiming himself as the new president of Venezuela.
That is truly a great story. Finding the correct spouse is a great blessing in life. My Weinermobile was a 1956 Merc. that I paid $175 real money silver certificates for, to obtain. It was transportation. I was always thankful that she was not attracted to great looking guys, riding with a tux in a Weinermobile. When you travel our way, we will take you out for a good meal and I will find out the "rest of the story" from your wife. Jim
The Epistle of Saint Helena: The Hidden Map Of Truth
“Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.”
First Epistle to the Corinthians—Chapter 1, Verse 25
Special Report from Sister Ciara
My Dearest Friends:
Last month you received my letter “The Epistle of Saint Helena: A Guide To Understanding Why The World Will End In 2022, Or Maybe Not”—that I likened to being the first chapter of much larger body of work based on the 1923 writings of Novice Kathleen Helen in her research of Saint Helena (250-330 A.D.)—who was the mother of Constantine the Great (272-337 A.D.), whom he appointed as Augusta Imperatrix, and gave unlimited access to the imperial Roman treasury in order for her to locate the relics of Judeo-Christian tradition—and is a must read for those you who haven’t already, so this next chapter can be fully understood.
Of the most sought after relics sought out by Saint Helena were maps of the ancient world and Egyptian mathematical papyruses—with the only ones surviving into today’s world being the Papyrus Anastasi I mathematical text and the Piri Reis Map—that was created in 1513, and discovered in 1929, that used 20 different maps and charts as its source documents--eight of which were Ptolemaic maps (maps of the known world according to the 2nd century Hellenistic or Greek society), four being Portuguese maps, one being an Arabic map, and one drawn by Christopher Columbus.
To understand the critical importance of not just the Piri Reis Map, but the others it was based on, too, you need to know that our world can only be circumvented by knowing what latitude and longitude you are located at—with latitude being able to be determined by celestial observations (such as Moon, Sun, stars, etc.), but longitude only able to be determined by exact time measurement—that wasn’t discovered, however, until the late 18th Century, thus meaning that these ancient maps couldn’t possibly have existed—most particularly because they showed an ice free Continent of Antarctica, and whose exactness were only able to be confirmed in the 20th Century with modern satellite readings.
Exactness of ancient Piri Reis Map confirmed by 20th Century satellite readings
In Novice Kathleen Helen’s translations of letters written by Saint Helena, she noted the Augusta Imperatrix’s knowledge of the true world, but further evidenced the frustration she had in trying to decipher and understand ancient Egyptian and Greek mathematics—and that was due to the Roman Numeral system of mathematics not having any zeros—that some historians believe was deliberate in order to keep hidden the Roman Empire’s vast trade routes.
Upon being able to understand ancient Egyptian and Greek mathematics, though, Saint Helena began to see a hidden world of numbers that even today are mind boggling—some of which include:
One Solar Day = 24 hours
24 hours x 60 minutes=1,440 minutes—and 1+4+4+0=9
1,440 minutes x 60 seconds = 86,400—and 8+6+4+0+0=9
That divided in half is:
720 minutes x 60 seconds = 43,200—and 4+3+2+0+0=9
Church History by Broadbent" page 68
Veneration of relics began at an early stage of the Church’s history. Helena, the mother of Constantine the Great, brought from Jerusalem wood supposed to be part of the cross, and nails which she believed had been used at the crucifixion. Pictures, images, and ikons began to be valued. Churches were built to receive relics or to commemorate the death of martyrs. Insensibly the meetings of the disciples of the Lord, in simple houses and rooms, changed to the gathering of all, willing or unwilling, believers or not, in consecrated buildings dedicated to the Virgin or one of the saints, filled with images, pictures, and relics, which became objects of worship. Prayer was diverted from God to the Virgin and the saints, and the idolatry of Paganism was reproduced in the gross superstitions that grew up around the images, the priests, and the forms of religion. It is a mark of the power of the revelation of Christ contained in the Scriptures, that even when Pagan idolatry and superstition had succeeded in gaining possession of the Catholic churches, there were to be found in them, then as now, great numbers of believers, whose hope of salvation was in Christ and whose lives were pious and godly. They, however, were a remnant, hidden in the mass of those who had been misled into the system of idolatry with its accompanying sin and ignorance, and their protests were raised in vain.
She traveled to Jerusalem, centuries after Jesus walked its streets and began to sell relics to anyone with gold and silver. They say that she sold so much of Jesus's Cross, that it would have taken a forest to supply the wood. She really knew how to make big bucks. Great sin came forth as idolatry entered into the steeple houses of that day and have remained.

Congressman Introduces Bill to Get the U.S. Out of the UN
Written by Alex Newman
As outrage over the United Nations continues to grow, legislation to restore American sovereignty by withdrawing from the scandal-plagued UN was introduced in Congress this month. In addition to getting the U.S. government out of the UN and evicting the global outfit’s headquarters from U.S. soil, the bill would end American involvement in the full panoply of UN agreements and agencies. It would also prohibit putting of U.S. troops under UN command.
The legislation has been introduced in Congress for decades. However, the current president’s publicly expressed hostility to globalism and his oft-stated support for U.S. sovereignty make the issue especially salient right now. In Congress and in the administration, as well as among everyday Americans, anti-UN sentiment is surging. Even some Democrats are fed up with the UN’s criticism of Israel. Advocates of the measure are urging Americans to contact their representatives, senators, and the White House in support.
The American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2019 (H.R. 204) was introduced by Congressman Mike Rogers (R-Ala.) right as the new Congress was getting started. “One of my first priorities in this new Congress was to make sure this bill was reintroduced,” said Rogers, who serves as the ranking member of the House Committee on Homeland Security. “The United Nations is a disaster and our country bankrolls over 20 percent of its annual budget.”
As in years past, Rogers outlined a range of concerns about the international organization. “The UN continues to attack our greatest ally Israel, and they continue to attack American ideals like the Second Amendment,” he explained, echoing frequent criticisms of the international organization widely referred to as the “dictators club” by critics. “President Trump has done his part to rein in the UN’s continual attacks on American sovereignty, but it’s time we did more.”
Indeed, Trump has already announced that the United States would withdraw from or defund a vast collection of UN agencies and programs. Among the most high-profile so far: the disgraced UN “Human Rights” Council, the UN Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the UN Migration Compact, the UN Paris Agreement on “climate,” the UN Relief and Works Agency, and more. He has also repeatedly told the UN that America rejects the “ideology of globalism” and that Americans — not the UN or other foreign bodies — would be in charge of governing America.
My primary purpose was the numerology included in the article for those who like to follow that. I see that he follows the belief of steeple houses being the place to receive Christ rather than from within.
By:Andrew MillerFrom:Miller's Church HistoryFrom:Mohammedanish - Iconoclasm (569 A.D. - 741 A.D.): Chapter 15
For more than three hundred years after the first publication of the gospel there is good reason to believe, that neither images nor any other visible objects of religious reverence were admitted into the public service of the churches, or adopted into the exercises of private devotion. Probably such a thing had never been thought of by Christians before the days of Constantine; and we can only regard it as an early fruit of the union of Church and State. Up till this period the great protest of Christians was against the idolatry of the heathen: for this they suffered unto death. And it is not a little remarkable, that the Empress Helena, Constantine's mother, was the first to excite the christian mind to this degrading superstition. She is said, in her zeal for religious places, to have discovered and disinterred the wood of the "true cross." This was enough for the enemy's purpose. The predilection of human nature for objects of veneration was kindled; the flame spread rapidly; and the usual consequence—idolatry—followed.
Similar memorials of the Savior, the Virgin Mary, the inspired Apostles, and the Fathers, were found. The most sacred relics that had been concealed for centuries were now discovered by visions. So great, so successful, was the delusion of the enemy, that the whole church fell into the snare. From the age of Constantine till the epoch of the Arab invasion, a veneration for images, pictures and relics gradually increased. The reverence for relics was more characteristic of the Western, and that for images of the Eastern churches; but from the time of Gregory the Great the feeling of the West became more favorable to images. In consequence of the almost total decay of literature, both among the clergy and the laity, the use of images was found to give immense power to the priesthood. Pictures, statues, and visible representations of sacred objects became the readiest mode of conveying instruction, encouraging devotion, and strengthening religious sentiments in the minds of the people. The more intellectual or enlightened of the clergy might endeavor to maintain the distinction between respect for images as a means and not as objects of worship. But the undiscriminating devotion of the vulgar utterly disregards these subtleties. The apologist may draw fine distinctions between images as objects of reverence and as objects of adoration; but there can be no doubt that with ignorant and superstitious minds the use, the reverence, the worship of images, whether in pictures or statues, invariably degenerates into idolatry.
Before the close of the sixth century idolatry was firmly established in the Eastern church, and during the seventh century it made a gradual and very general progress in the West, where it had previously gained some footing. It became usual to fall down before images, to pray to them, to kiss them, to adorn them with gems and precious metals, to lay the hand on them in swearing, and even to employ them as sponsors at baptism.
It is truly tragic, that the modern pew sitter have no knowledge of the past and how they have become enemies of the Cross through their idols. Jim
We traveled to the big city mall today. We noticed that there were many girl scouts, or it may be they are only scouts these days. Many vacant store units were opened and having signs to prepare for possible future civic needs, advertised using "Zombie". Yes, I know, it is advertising and gets the kids involved, just like a Halloween demonic event.
Well, I have watched for decades, not having seen one zombie or a bigfoot. However, I have witnessed hundreds of demon possessed people, and there never is a public grouping, to prepare our youth for what is coming. I guess I could go to the mall, set up a table and place a sign saying: "Learn how to deal with demon possessed people", but I am sure the security squad would ban me from the mall. Jim
