Russia Preparing For War ???

According to this report, the Russians are getting ready for war:

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/vladimir-putin-russia-business-war-production-sochi-military-talks-a8069951.html

Note well that it was the US, NATO, Israel, and Saudi Arabia which have pushed them to this point. We could have had peace, but for some reason (like maybe greed?) the powers that be rejected that possibility.

The Other Side Of Thanksgiving

On this day I have a lot to be thankful for. But the good life we enjoy here in the US stems in great part from the crimes of our ancestors:

Though promoted as a time for celebration and warm family gatherings, the Thanksgiving tradition is yet another distortion of the genocidal settler colonial history of the United States. When we celebrate the day, we participate in the state's campaign to abdicate political responsibility for the continuing violence inflicted upon Indigenous peoples, their culture and their land.

Gorging ourselves with too much food while millions go hungry is no way to "give thanks". Here is what we all should be doing instead - helping the homeless, the hungry, and others abandoned by our nation:

But I guess the morons in DC and the Pentagon would rather squander our national treasure on building more nuclear weapons:

http://original.antiwar.com/Harry_Blain/2017/11/22/us-stockpiling-nuclear-arms-cost-astonishing/

We in the USA are a schizophrenic mess.

In addition to "giving thanks", let's spend part of today praying that this madness will pass, that the wicked will be brought to justice, and that we as a nation will abandon this evil path we so eagerly follow:

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Romans 1:28-32 KJV

We're sinking down into a deep, dark hole, and the idiots who run this place have no clue what they're doing to us.

The alternative - i.e., they DO know and either don't care or think this is a great idea - is an even scarier possibility.

And by the way, Trump and Sessions are not going to fix this. They're in WAY over their heads.

US Complicit In Torture Of Saudi Coup Plotters

It appears that US mercenaries are being used to torture the Saudi coup plotters:

  • Source in Saudi Arabia says American private security contractors are carrying out 'interrogations' on princes and billionaires arrested in crackdown
  • Detained members of Saudi elite have been hung by their feet and beaten by interrogates, source says
  • Among those hung upside down are Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, an investor worth at least $7 billion who is being held at Riyadh's Ritz Carlton
  • Arrests were ordered three weeks ago by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman
  • Source claims mercenaries are from 'Blackwater', a claim also made by Lebanese president
  • But its successor firm denies it has any operations in Saudi Arabia whatsoever and says its staff abide by U.S. law
  • Americans who commit torture abroad can be jailed for up to 20 years

That last part is a joke. No one is going to prosecute US torturers and murderers.

We have sunk pretty low, but we've got a long way to go before we reach bottom.

And don't tell me this is a "Trump" issue. Hillary would torture 'em, too. There's a lot at stake here, and the dark forces behind this will do anything to enact their agenda for the Middle East and the world.

A New Era For Zimbabwe ???

Western officials are keen to see the transitional government adopt economic policies to their liking. “It’s a transition to a new era for Zimbabwe; that’s really what we’re hoping for,” acting U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs Donald Yamamoto said. A European Union spokesperson announced that the EU is “committed to support Zimbabwe in the preparation of credible elections and the delivery of political and economic reforms.” It can be expected that it will not be long before Western economic advisers are paying visits to the transitional government, urging it to enact reforms to liberalize the economy to suit Western investors.

Opioids - Punishing The Patients

Here is a report about the so-called "opioid crisis":

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-11-21/millions-of-patients-face-pain-and-withdrawal-as-opioid-prescriptions-plummet

My wife has been taking opioids for the pain caused by what I consider to be botched hip surgery.

It looks like she will have this pain for the rest of her life. What does medicine have to offer her other than opioids? NOTHING.

Unless I'm mistaken, most of the "opioid" deaths are from fentanyl. Hardly any of the people in REAL pain are taking fentanyl, so why are we punishing the patients?

Until pharma comes up with a different painkiller WHICH WORKS, get off our backs and let the patients decide whether or not they've had enough.

State Department BS

According to this report, some State Department employees are offended that SoS Tillerson has broken some law(s):

https://www.yahoo.com/news/state-dept-revolt-tillerson-accused-violating-u-law-060524602.html

During her tenure as SoS, Hillary Clinton appears to have violated multiple US and international laws and pushed through actions which got thousands killed and millions displaced, but none of these clowns said or did a damn thing.

As far as I am concerned, they all can go to hell.

Something Big Is Going To Happen

Something big is brewing. I don't know what it is, but I know it's coming.

Why? Because someone or some group is trying VERY hard to disrupt the functioning of the US government, using allegations of sexual misconduct as their weapon of choice.

To explain what I mean, please read something I wrote on the evening of September 11, 2001, and which is still valid today [in italics]:

Rep. Gary Condit (D-Ca) is a member of the House Permanent Intelligence Committee. His sub-committee assignments are (1) Human Intelligence, Analysis, and Counterintelligence; and (2) Technical and Tactical Intelligence.

As you may have noticed, Rep. Condit has been harassed for the past several months because of the Chandra Levy "disappearance" and probably has been unable to do his job.

Today, a terrorist attack took place, in part, because America lacked (1) Human Intelligence, Analysis, and Counterintelligence and (2) Technical and Tactical Intelligence at the highest levels of government.

What's the probability that Rep. Condit was harassed so that this terrorist attack could proceed? And if he was, what nation is capable of such harassment?

I believe that Chandra was murdered by the 9/11 plotters, for the specific purpose of preventing Rep. Condit from doing his job, during the course of which he might very well have discovered what they were planning on doing.

This is consistent with the suspicious death of Senator Paul Wellstone, who was one of the few people in Congress who did not buy the official story of 9/11 and who threatened to find out what had really happened.

We don't live in a democracy. We are ruled by murderous oligarchs who are quite willing to kill anyone who gets in their way.

[see http://sainthoward.blogspot.com/2015/06/the-reason-chandra-levy-was-murdered.html]

Yes, these allegations of sexual misconduct are important, and their perpetrators must be outed and punished. But two underlying concerns are "why" and "why now"?

As to "why", I don't think "justice" is the reason. If it were, Bill Clinton would be in jail for his sexual assaults, rapes, and sex with minors.

As to "why now", I'm not certain either ... but using the Condit episode as a guide I'm fairly certain we're seeing a smokescreen which will keep our attention focused here while the real agenda unfolds in the background. And that agenda will lead to a power grab of some sort, a coup, an attack on US soil, and/or a war in the Middle East.

Something big is going to happen. You can count on it.

Why Isn't Bill Clinton In Jail ???

Once again, women are accusing Bubba of sexual assault:

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-20/four-more-women-accuse-bill-clinton-sexual-assault

Impeach the bum and throw him in jail where he belongs !!!

There is only one reason why Bill and Hillary have avoided jail - they must have a personal spy network which collected dirt on everyone, which so far has allowed them to threaten their enemies every time one of them steps on another landmine.

If the Clintons are not jailed, the US will never recover. This piecemeal stuff (first Harvey, then Roy, then Al, etc.) just ain't gonna cut it.

Why Are US Troops In Somalia ???

One of the many quiet escalations in countries where US military operations on the ground hadn’t really been well publicized in the first place, officials say that the US has more than doubled the number of ground troops in Somalia this year, and now have over 500 troops there.

We're revolutionizing the news industry, but we need your help! Click here to get started.
This is the most troops the US have had in the country since 1993, when the Black Hawk Down incident killed 18 US soldiers and led to a quick withdrawal from the nation. This year was also the first year since 1993 that any US troops died in Somalia.

This escalation has involved a soaring number of US airstrikes in Somalia, not to mention a number of joint ground operations with Somali forces, mostly against al-Shabaab fighters, but many of them with very unclear goals.

But the goals of the whole US operation in Somalia aren’t exactly clear anyhow, with some vague interest in fighting al-Shabaab, and possibly the ISIS affiliate in Puntland, but little sign that the operation is anything but escalation for escalation’s sake.

One after another, countries around the world are being invaded by the US. Why? And how does this benefit We The People, who have to pay for this military adventurism?

Hillary Wants To Leave The Earth ???

Hillary Clinton really wants to be president - even if that means blasting off from Earth to do so.

The failed Democratic candidate recently talked with Now This, a liberal online news outlet, where she pined for a presidency.

While discussing a variety of topics, Clinton envisioned leaving Earth and venturing Earth 2, where that planet faces the same issues as the actual Earth.

Charles Manson, RIP

As you may have heard, Charles Manson is dead:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/charles-manson-whose-cult-slayings-horrified-world-dies-055844949.html

Here are three things you probably did not know:

1. According to the book The Search for the Manchurian Candidate by John Marks, the US government was looking for people who fit the Manson profile, studying them, and using them for various covert projects. Although never confirmed, it is quite possible Manson was one of their recruits.

2. At the time, most of the LSD coming into the US originated at the Atsugi airbase in Japan, courtesy of the CIA. Although never confirmed, it is quite possible the CIA was the source of Manson's drugs. [By the way, Lee Harvey Oswald worked as a radar operator at Atsugi prior to defecting to Russia.]

3. The local sheriff's department had been tipped off to Manson's activities and was preparing to raid his evil lair prior to the murders his group then committed. However, at the last minute some unnamed party called off the raid, thereby facilitating the worst of Manson's crimes. It is quite possible the CIA or FBI was the party which called off the raid, which makes sense if Manson had been one of their operatives and involved in an ongoing project (like maybe MK Ultra).

The MSM gives us the same story over and over about Manson, never looking at what lurks behind it. We should know by now that "our" government usually knows in advance when groups like the Manson family are getting ready to commit their attacks ... but for some reason allows those attacks to proceed.

And somehow we never seem to figure out or even care just why that happens over, and over, and over again. Did you ever consider that maybe it was the US government that wanted Manson's race war to occur?

Was Saudi Crown Prince In Vegas On Day Of Shooting ???

Now HERE is an interesting hypothesis - Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman was at the Tropicana on the day of the Vegas shooting and was escorted to safety under armed guard. You can watch the video here:

http://www.rense.com/general96/MBS.html

Certainly there is nothing wrong with the future king gambling in Sin City (at least not from a US perspective), but if he WAS there on that day this is a VERY strange coincidence - comparable to Richard Nixon's and George H.W. Bush's alleged presence in Dallas around the time of the JFK murder.

What was going on here? Were the Vegas shootings cover for a failed assassination attempt aimed at MBS? And was THAT what led to the arrest of the Saudi royals which commenced roughly a month later?

Keep these things in mind while assessing this possibility:

(1) The Tropicana is right next to the concert venue where most of the shooting took place;

(2) There was an airport traffic control report of active shooters on the runway (possibly aimed at MBS's personal jet to prevent his escape); and

(3) There are lots of videos on YouTube showing helicopter activity around the time of the shooting. Could some of it be related to the evacuation of MBS from the scene?

If we cut through the veil of BS surrounding the alleged shooter and instead focus on the presence of the Crown Prince, a more likely motive for the Vegas attacks becomes clear - it was an attempt to assassinate MBS which was hidden behind the screen of an alleged lone nut shooting massacre. All covered up by the MSM and various US authorities.

Jeez, is this country screwed up or what?

Update - If the above scenario is correct, the next big question is this:

Was this a REAL assassination attempt, or just a phony one meant to scare him and drive him into the arms of the US and Israeli forces who are itching to have a war with Iran?

Two additional thoughts:

(1) Another key question - why were several royals beaten and tortured, unless they were suspected of plotting to kill MBS?

http://www.middleeasteye.net/news/exclusive-former-crown-prince-among-saudi-torture-victims-340914670

(2) Perhaps the claim the alleged shooter was affiliated with ISIS or another Islamic militant group was spread to support a conclusion that Iran was behind the attempt on the Crown Prince's life.

All the evidence I see is consistent with my initial assessment - the Vegas shootings occurred because someone tried to kill MBS there, and the "lone wolf shooter" BS is just a cover story.

Isn't it remarkable how easy it is to fool the US public?

Slaughterbots

Here is one possible future - the deployment of slaughterbots by parties unknown:

Dear President Trump - stop believing these guys. Their interests usually conflict with ours, but for some reason they are able to persuade us otherwise.

US Still Protecting The Poppy Crop

There is at least one US success story in Afghanistan - the opium poppy crop is flourishing:

The opioid crisis has killed thousands in the United States, and as more than 100 Americans die every day, opium poppy cultivation has hit a record high in Afghanistan in 2017. Coincidentally, President Donald Trump’s troop surge in Afghanistan has essentially been completed, boosting the number of service members on the ground from 11,000 to 14,000, the Pentagon said this week.

“We’ve just completed a force flow into Afghanistan,” Marine Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, the Pentagon’s Joint Staff Director, said at a news conference. “The new number for Afghanistan is now approximately 14,000—might be a little above that, might be a little below that, as we flex according to the mission.”

Coinciding with the completion of the troop surge, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime and Afghanistan’s Ministry of Counter Narcotics released a report claiming that the “area under opium poppy cultivation increased by 63% since 2016, reaching a new record high.”

Is China Behind The Fall Of Mugabe ???

Poor Africa, and poor Africans! They have been cursed with material wealth which will never benefit them.

China appears to be the latest world power lusting after African minerals:

A major issue for China continues to be the indigenization initiatives introduced by Mugabe and ZANU-PF over the last decade. The indigenization program altered the laws of the country regarding ownership, mandating that enterprises deemed in the national interest should be majority owned by Zimbabweans, not foreign investors. While there have been exceptions made for China because of the influence it wields in the country, increasingly even Chinese interests have been subjected to indigenization policies.

As of April 1, 2016, when the new indigenization legislation took effect, Chinese companies began to worry that their previously negotiated exemptions to indigenization regulations would be scaled back, if not eliminated.

The Missing Submarine

One of Argentina's submarines apparently is missing. You can read about it here:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2017/11/18/a-submarine-has-vanished-launching-a-frantic-search-for-44-people-on-board/

As a former submariner, my heart goes out to her officers and crew and their families. I think I know exactly what they are going through.

I also served on a "old" submarine (two of them in fact). The first was in danger of sinking on several occasions, and I personally helped keep it from going down more than once.

If they were having trouble in rough seas, they're screwed. Subs don't ride well on the surface in rough seas, and if they were taking on water and lost power it's very likely the ship has been lost.

About Those "Illegal" Nuclear Orders

You may have heard that US generals now express a willingness to disobey President Trump's potentially "illegal" nuclear launch orders:

https://sputniknews.com/us/201711181059228641-us-stratcom-president-nuclear-weapons/

Ain't that a riot?

First of all, MANY recent orders given by Bush and Obama ad-Dajjal really HAVE been illegal ... yet the global slaughter continues unabated, apparently unquestioned by "our" generals.

Second, if you have been paying attention you know that Russia is EXTREMELY concerned that the US is preparing a first strike against them. If Russia somehow (through Russiagate or otherwise) got US generals to now question such orders from their Commander-in-Chief, that's quite an accomplishment.

But realistically it is the US deep state which is responsible for what is happening ... meaning THEY are the ones who are endangering the US by introducing doubt in the minds of those tasked with protecting us from a nuclear strike. Knowing that, haven't they committed a vile act of treason?

You can add that to the long list of Hillary's apparent crimes.

Planning The Next Financial Collapse

The Federal Reserve seems to be thinking about how to respond to an upcoming financial crisis or a recession in the global economy. As the English-language service reports from Reuters , there are apparently far-reaching and very unusual measures in the conversation.

John Williams, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, said at a conference that it would no longer be enough to cut interest rates in the next recession. Instead, much more far-reaching measures would have to be taken. "We will be much better equipped to curb the next economic recession as we develop approaches that will work when many other countries are simultaneously hampered by the already expansive monetary policies of their central banks," Williams said. "And that means that you have to worry about the consequences of monetary policy."

Williams explained that central banks no longer need to use bond purchases and lower interest rates alone, but also negative interest rates on bank deposits - as they have already imposed today by the ECB, the Japanese central bank and the Swiss National Bank. In addition, according to Williams, "tools" would have to be used that have never been used before. These include price level targeting and nominal income targeting.

Is US In Terminal Decline ???

According to this report, the US is in terminal decline:

https://www.theautomaticearth.com/2017/11/america-is-in-terminal-decline/

I think anyone watching the drivel on CNN, Fox, MSNBC, etc. will have to agree. And nothing Trump or "the resistance" is doing will stop our decline.

Clearly we have lost our way:


I believe the best thing we can do now (perhaps the only thing) is to cede our leadership responsibilities to China and Russia and cut our military adventures and expenditures to the bone. That may be painful for some, but at this point there is going to be pain no matter what we do.

Nursing Homes, Or Death Traps ???

Here is a sickening story of how a nursing home apparently neglected one of its residents:

An 11Alive investigation uncovered hidden camera video catching nursing home staff laughing while an elderly patient dies in front of them.

Why Is US Staying In Syria ???

US military intentions in Syria have never been exactly transparent, but are becoming ever less so, as Pentagon officials loudly declare ISIS to have been “defeated” in the country, but insist that they intend to remain.

This is a potential major legal issue, because Syria never authorized the US invasion in the first place. US officials always presented the authorization as being UN resolutions supporting the fight against ISIS, but that would no longer apply.

Moreover, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has pointed out that Secretary of State Tillerson has repeatedly assured him that the “only” US goal in Syria is to fight ISIS. This is adding to Russian concerns about what the US is actually planning on doing next.

Once Again, Democrats May Get A Free Pass

As pointed out in this article, Bill Clinton should have resigned over his affair with Monica Lewinsky:

http://fortune.com/2017/11/17/kirsten-gillibrand-clinton-lewinsky-scandal/

But he didn't.

He also should have been prosecuted for all the times he harassed, assaulted, and raped women, including underage girls. But he wasn't.

Hillary Clinton should have resigned AND dropped out of the presidential race over her apparent gross mishandling of classified material. But she didn't. She should have been prosecuted for her many apparent crimes, but she wasn't.

Now Al Franken (the clown senator) has been outed for sexual harassment. But some are saying that he shouldn't have to resign:

https://www.yahoo.com/gma/al-franken-accuser-leeann-tweeden-says-she-stayed-122705277--abc-news-topstories.html

President Trump and Roy Moore, on the other hand, have to be held accountable for everything they did, might have done, and/or are being accused of. And they have to go - impeached or otherwise forced out.

As far as I am concerned. this whole mess is a soft coup. It has nothing to do with crimes or improprieties (although there appear to be many) and lots to do with seizing the reins of power to keep the US within the globalist agenda.

No matter what the outcome, we have finally come to the point where we all should be ashamed to be Americans.

Nvidia - Exciting, But Terrifying

Here is an excellent report in Fortune about Nvidia by Andrew Nusca. Here is what I think is the most important part:

“The thing that I believe is going to be really incredible that’s going to happen next is the ability for artificial intelligence to write artificial intelligence by itself,” he (Jensen Huang) replies.

My eyes widen at the prospect as Huang continues. “In the future, companies will have an A.I. that is watching every single transaction - every business process - that is happening, all day long,” he says. “Certain transactions or patterns that are being repeated. The process could be very complicated. It could go through sales to engineering, supply chain, logistics, business operations, finance, customer service. And it could be observed that this pattern is happening all the time. As a result of this observation, the artificial intelligence software writes an artificial intelligence software to automate that business process. Because we won’t be able to do it. It’s too complicated.”

By now my head is spinning, lost in a bizarre vision that somehow combines the films Office Space, The Matrix, and Inception.

But Huang is still rolling. “We’re seeing early indications of it now,” he adds. “Generative adversarial networks, or GAN. I think over the next several years we’re going to see a lot of neural networks that develop neural networks. For the next couple of decades, the greatest contribution of A.I. is writing software that humans simply can’t write. Solving the unsolvable problems.”

Artificial intelligence watching everything and everyone and writing artificial intelligence by itself?

The terrifying part is that Jensen does not appear to see the danger in what he is creating; or even worse, that he can but does not care.

The MOST unsolvable problem is too many humans on this planet. You can bet your sweet bippy that A.I. will solve this by "writing software that humans simply can't write" ... and that will kill most or all of us. There is NO ONE who can guarantee that such a thing will not happen, and plenty of reasons to think it is inevitable.

Where Are The Lost Tribes Of Israel ???

The claim of the Bnei Menashe to be descendants of the tribe of Menashe, exiled from the Land of Israel more than 2,700 years ago by the Assyrian empire, has stirred controversy in Israel over the years.

The Chief Rabbinate initially did not consider the Bnei Menashe to be Jewish, and their immigration was halted at the beginning of the 21st century amid contention. But in 2005, then-Sephardi chief rabbi Shlomo Amar formally recognized the Bnei Menashe as descendants of one of the Ten Lost Tribes, though still requiring them to convert to Judaism as soon as they arrive in Israel.

It is a FACT that many Christian sects believe the British and American people to be descendants of the Lost Tribes of Israel. It also is a FACT that the Chief Rabbinate will NEVER acknowledge this.

Those who believe in two covenants, one for Jews and one for Christians, do not live in Israel. They may NEVER live in Israel.

What's Wrong With Our World, In A Nutshell

Last night a damaged painting of questionable provenance sold for $450 million:

In spite of this show of excessive wealth, an average of 27,000+ persons die every day of chronic hunger and hunger-related diseases:

God money's not looking for the cure.
God money's not concerned with the sick amongst the pure.
God money let's go dancing on the backs of the bruised.
God money's not one to choose.

ICC To Investigate US For War Crimes ???

On November 14, Fatou Bensouda, chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, requested authorization to open an investigation of war crimes and crimes against humanity allegedly committed by CIA and US military leaders, as well as Taliban and Afghan officials. If a full investigation proceeds as requested, it would send a clear signal to the Trump administration that no one is above the law.

I'm 100% in favor of this. But is it reasonable that the ICC would cause any US official to be tried, let alone arrested? I doubt it.

By the way, note well the report mentions Trump and Bush, but not Obama or the Clintons ... all three of whom are just as guilty as their Republican counterparts.

Lead Poisoning Not Just In Flint, MI

In an updated study, Reuters news agency has identified 3,810 neighborhoods where recently recorded child lead poisoning rates are at least double those found in Flint, Michigan during the height of that city’s water crisis in 2014 and 2015. In some 1,300 of these “hotspot” communities, the percentage of children six and under with elevated lead levels was at least four times the percentage in Flint during the peak of the crisis.

In pockets of Baltimore, Cleveland and Philadelphia, where lead poisoning has spanned generations, Reuters reported that the rate of elevated tests over the last decade was 50 percent or higher.

Let's face it - in many respects the US is a "failed state", with poor public health being towards the top of the list.

The Space Nation ???

Hail Asgardia !!!

The world's first "space nation" has taken flight.

On November 12, Asgardia cemented its presence in outer space by launching the Asgardia-1 satellite.

The "nanosat" -- it is roughly the size of a loaf of bread -- undertook a two-day journey from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia, the United States, to the International Space Station (ISS).

It contains 0.5 TB of data belonging to 18,000 of Asgardia's citizens, such as family photographs, as well as digital representations of the space nation's flag, coat of arms and constitution.

I signed up for Asgardia, but I don't think they blasted my data into space.

So far, they haven't offered me a passport or a discount ticket to earth orbit, let alone to the moon or Mars.

Hillary's Silly Warning

Hillary is warning of "a dictatorship":

Yes Hillary, there will be a dictatorship. You and your minions are helping to create it.

By the way, why are your crimes always just "a distraction", while those of Trump and Roy Moore seem like the end of the world?

The Forests Of Antarctica

The frozen continent once was covered with lush forests:

https://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/11/ancient-fossil-forest-found-antarctica-gondwana-spd/

Of course it helped that it once was connected to other continents:


Q: If life has survived such upheavals in the past, why can't it survive without our intervention now?

A: Of course it can, if we would leave the earth alone. It's humanity which is causing the latest extinction. The planet would be FAR better off without us.

Gospel Of Peace

Nothing symbolizes the United States of America more than the Statue of Liberty. “The Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World” was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the United States, and it is widely recognized as a universal symbol of freedom and democracy.

Frenchman Edouard de Laboulaye was an abolitionist and supporter of President Abraham Lincoln during the American Civil War. In 1865, he proposed creating a grand monument for the United States. The recent Union victory in the Civil War, which reaffirmed the United States' ideals of freedom and democracy, served as a platform for Laboulaye to argue that honoring the United States would strengthen the cause for democracy in France.

The statue itself was designed and fabricated by French sculptor Auguste Bartholdi. Bartholdi made a number of trips to the US to stir up support and to locate a site for the monument. The moment he first entered New York harbor, he spotted the location where he knew the statue must stand – on Bedloe's Island (known today as Liberty Island). New York was the gateway to America, and it was on Bedloe's Island that Bartholdi envisioned the statue standing atop the star-shaped Fort Wood.

Construction of the statue and its pedestal was a joint French-American effort. President Ulysses S. Grant was instrumental in getting a bill through Congress which authorized the acceptance of the statue. Publisher Joseph Pulitzer sponsored a fund drive to support construction of the statue’s pedestal. It was in support of Pulitzer’s fund drive that Emma Lazarus composed her famous sonnet “The New Colossus”:

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Upon its completion in France, the statue was shipped to New York and erected atop the pedestal. On October 28, 1886, the statue was formally dedicated in a spectacular ceremony headed by President Grover Cleveland, whose remarks echoed the words of Lazarus’ sonnet:

We are not here today to bow before the representation of a fierce warlike god, filled with wrath and vengeance, but we joyously contemplate instead our own deity keeping watch and ward before the open gates of America and greater than all that have been celebrated in ancient song. Instead of grasping in her hand thunderbolts of terror and of death, she holds aloft the light which illumines the way to man's enfranchisement. We will not forget that Liberty has here made her home, nor shall her chosen altar be neglected. Willing votaries will constantly keep alive its fires and these shall gleam upon the shores of our sister Republic thence, and joined with answering rays a stream of light shall pierce the darkness of ignorance and man's oppression, until Liberty enlightens the world.

Our Statue of Liberty symbolizes not just liberty, but also America’s gospel of peace and worldwide welcome. To the millions of people whom she greeted upon their arrival in America and to the billions who admire her from afar, she is truly the Goddess of Liberty.

Can A Robot Have A Soul ???

This essay asks whether or not a robot can become a member of a religious faith:

https://www.newyorker.com/tech/elements/can-a-robot-join-the-faith

Strangely, it does not address what is probably the most important underlying question - can a robot have a soul?

The Bible answers this question rather directly, since robots are the work of human hands and therefore fall into the category of "idols":

And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
2 Corinthians 6:16 KJV

No idol may serve as "the temple of the living God"; therefore, no robot can have a soul.

But some may reply that robots now can speak and soon may be able to think ... and may even someday pass the so-called Turing Test. What then?

This prophecy anticipates that possibility:

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
Revelation 13:15 KJV

Yes, our robots/AI do indeed speak and they soon will be capable of independent thought. But when that occurs, they will be acting as minions of the False Prophet. They will be entities WITHOUT souls, and any church which welcomes them in will be a false church and an ANTICHRIST church.

Do NOT let them into your homes or your churches. FLEE FROM THEM !!!

Quote For The Day - 11/14/2017

"It's unnatural and unhealthy for a nation to be engaged in global crusades for some principle or idea while neglecting the needs of its own people."
Senator J. William Fulbright

I would include globalism and all the open borders crap in Fulbright's definition of "global crusades". But for some incomprehensible reason, America loves strangers more than its own people.

Go figure.

How The Federal Reserve System Destroyed America

Here is a great report about the "creature from Jekyll Island":

https://econimica.blogspot.gr/2017/11/how-federal-reserve-destroyed.html

Those of you who have read Confessions of an Economic Hit Man will recognize exactly what the Fed did - lied to us, encouraged us to borrow WAY beyond our means, and then used that huge debt to wreck our economy.

AUDIT THE DAMN FED - and if necessary shut it down.

Israel Vs. North Korea

Here is an interesting comparison by Kim Peterson:

Missing from corporate media accounts is what causes the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK a.k.a. North Korea) to be singled out for opprobrium for what, essentially, is developing a deterrent against any entity that would attack it.

A comparison with how the United Nations deals with North Korea vis-à-vis another member state state, Israel, is instructive.

Israel occupies Palestinian territory; destroys Palestinian olive groves and poisons Palestinian sheep; sprays Palestinian homes with sewage; sabotages Palestinian water supplies; cuts off power to Palestine; terrorizes Palestinians for hours at checkpoints, including the sick, infirm, and pregnant women, some who are forced to give birth at the checkpoints; stops fishermen from earning a living from the sea; shells hospitals, schools, and playgrounds; blows up kids on beaches; and commits myriad other war crimes. Israel has nuclear weapons and ICBMs. The last point is the only one that North Korea shares with Israel.

Yet only North Korea is vociferously criticized and sanctioned by the US and its allies. Is this fair?

And is it just that North Korea is bullied and sanctioned for developing a self-defense?
