In 1776, a Bavarian Jesuit by the name of Adam Wieshaupt was commissioned by the House of Rothschild centralize the power base of the Mystery Religions into what is commonly known as the Illuminati meaning "Enlightened Ones." This was an amalgamation of powerful occultic bloodlines, elite secret societies and influential Masonic fraternities, with the desire to construct the framework for a NWO of outward goal of this Utopia was to bring forth universal happiness to the human race.

Mabus will do things that will make what Adolf Hitler did look like a joke.

ILLUMINATI [ilu’mine’tai; ilu’mina’ti], a name given by the Ante-Nicene Church Fathers to those who submitted to Christian baptism (Greek; phi omega tau o’ s, “illumination”). They were called “Illuminati” (phi omega tau o’ s), or “illuminated ones,” on the assumption that those who were instructed for baptism in the Apostolic faith had received the grace of illumination in an enlightened understanding. Clement of Alexandria speaks thus of such baptismal light.

During the height of the Industrial Revolution (1840's) in Lowell, MA life was similar to the following words shown below

Defying factory rules, operatives would affix verses to their spinning frames, “to train their memories,” and pin up mathematical problems in the rooms where they worked. In the evenings, many enrolled in courses offered by the mills and attended public lectures at the Lyceum, a theater built by textile factory owners.

The Voice of Industry is alive with notices for upcoming lectures, courses, and meetings on topics ranging from astronomy to music.

In 1940, British psychiatrist, J. R. Lees set the plan for psychiatry for the next 60 years, and G. Brock Chisholm, co-founder of the World Federation for Mental Health expanded upon psychiatry’s plan and was recorded and verbally spoke the following words: “The reinterpretation and eventually eradication of the concept of right and wrong are the objectives of all psychotherapy.” “To achieve world government it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, their loyalty to family traditions, national patriotism, and religious dogmas."

Psychiatrists convinced the American government that they could solve all of the problems of men, and psychiatric research went from 1,000,000 dollars a year to 1,400,000,000 dollars a year within the time period of over 55 years, that is from 1940 to the year 1995.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders serves and has served as the “bible” for psychiatrists, for their creation of fictitious mental disorders that are not supported and backed up with proven science of the human psyche or human mind, however an increase of funding by the U.S. government for psychiatric research has increased by over 139,000 per cent since the year 1940.  These fictitious mental disorders are voted into existence and then published into the DSM.
The DSM is, (according to Dr. Ron Leifer M.D., psychiatrist) is an arbitrary classification of moods, thoughts, and behaviors that are decided upon by a committee of psychiatrists.

“Psychiatry is not a real science, since it is not like there has ever been a scientific study of human tissue, spinal or brain matter that has determined whether or not the mental illnesses contained within the DSM do or do not exists”, as he stated, in a documentary film on the internet at this URL;

The Future of Eugenics.

Eugenics, although based on the science of genetics, is not itself a science, for it must above all concern itself with social values, with the question:  Whither mankind?

Perhaps general agreement could be had that freedom from gross physical or mental defects and the possession of sound health, high intelligence, general adaptability, and nobility of spirit are the major goals toward which eugenics should aim; perhaps even that diversity of nature is better than uniformity of type.

But how far ought selective reproduction to interfere with human freedoms?  

Genetically, as in other respects, "there is so much bad in the best of us and so much good in the worst of us" that it is hard to assess if the worth of the manifested hereditary characteristics are the product of environment, particularly for those qualities that are eugenics' major concern: sound health, high intelligence, and the like.  

The Jukes and Kallikaks were horrible examples of degenerate humanity, but what might they have been in a better world?

Were their alcoholism, their crime, and their vice inescapable products of their genes?  It seems very doubtful.  

Only the experiment of putting them from earliest infancy into an optimum environment-not forgetting that it need not be the same for everyone--than to modify gene frequencies by wise selection.  

Once mankind has produced an approximation of that optimum environment, the eugenics task will be much simpler.  

In fact, the natural selection exerted by such an environment may make eugenics quite unnecessary.

With regard to this lack of... almost a lack of discernment. I guess that's basically what he was saying. They were easily tricked or too trusting. The thing that flashed through my mind rather quickly, for example in schools... how quickly so-called AIDS education was introduced.
It did amaze me because if a group stated publicly that they wanted to introduce the concept of sodomy or initiate sex earlier and earlier in children and that was the reason given, most parents I presume wouldn't go for that. So you have to come up with another reason and of course the reason for this so-called AIDS education was to protect children from this disease. But actually, as it turns out, it's really been a great boon for the homosexual network, because through various things like Project Ten they now have access to our children from the youngest years.
These programs are going on from K-12 and I imagine well into college and beyond, so that they are reaching a tremendous segment. Speaking of children, I gather that this speaker... he kept on making the point about, well, old people, they're going to go by the wayside, so I presume that the emphasis for these controllers for this New World Order is really an emphasis on youth.

Absolutely. Yes. Emphasis on youth. This was stated explicitly. People beyond a certain age... they're set in their ways and you're not going to change them. They have values and they're going to stick to them. But you get to the youth when they're young, they're pliable. You mold them in the direction you want them to go. This is correct. They're targeting the young. They figure, "you old fogies that don't see it our way, you're going to be dying off or when the time comes we're going to get rid of you. But it's the youngsters we have to mold in the impression we want."
Now something on homosexuality I want to expand on, I don't think this came out on the original tape, but there was, first of all, "We're going to promote homosexuality." And secondly "We recognize that it's bizarre abnormal behavior. But, this is another element in the law of the jungle, because people who are stupid enough to go along with this are not fit to inhabit the planet and they'll go by the wayside".
I'm not stating this precisely the way he said it, but it wasn't too far from there where there was some mention of diseases being created. And when I remember the one statement and remember the other statement, I believe AIDS is a disease which has been created in the laboratory and I think that one purpose it serves is to get rid of people who are so stupid as to go along with our homosexual program. Let them wipe themselves out.
Now it's hard for me make clear how much of it is I'm remembering with great confidence and how much is pure speculation. But as I synthesize this - this is I think what happens... "If you're dumb enough to be convinced by our promotion of homosexuality you don't deserve a place and you're going to fall by the wayside sooner or later. We'll be rid of you. We'll select out... the people who will survive are those who are also smart enough not to be deluded by our propaganda". Does that make sense?

Well, it certainly makes sense for them. And I think also this early sex initiation has the over all purpose which I think we'll get to in depth a little later. But of the sexualization of the population... when he said on the tape, basically, "Anything goes", I think that is what we're seeing. It's not so much that, let's say, someone may not adopt the homosexual style for himself, but as a result of the propaganda he certainly will be a lot more tolerant of that type of behavior too.
So it's a desensitization, even for the individual who doesn't go over and accept it for himself.

John Craig Venter (born October 14, 1946) is an American biotechnologist, biochemist, geneticist, and entrepreneur. He is known for being one of the first to sequence the human genome and the first to transfect a cell with a synthetic genome. Venter founded Celera Genomics, The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR) and the J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI), and is now CEO of Human Longevity Inc. He was listed on Time magazine's 2007 and 2008 Time 100 list of the most influential people in the world. In 2010, the British magazine New Statesman listed Craig Venter at 14th in the list of "The World's 50 Most Influential Figures 2010". He is a member of the USA Science and Engineering Festival's Advisory Board.
<br><br>
While an employee of the NIH, Venter used a technique for rapidly identifying all of the mRNA strands present in a cell; and he began to use it to identify genes which are expressed in the human brain. The short cDNA sequence fragments discovered by this method are called expressed sequence tags, or ESTs. The NIH Office of Technology Transfer and Venter decided to use these ESTs in an attempt to patent the genes they identified based on their studies of mRNA expression in the human brain. When Venter disclosed this strategy during a Congressional hearing, a firestorm of controversy erupted. The NIH later stopped the effort and abandoned the patent applications it had filed, following public outcry.


Neurology vs. Psychiatry
_________________________

Psychiatry's main focus has been on functional disorders. Functional disorders do not have an observable pathology. This has made psychiatry awkward and artificial.
The path for physiological definition of neurology has been discovered and proved, but the path for the physiological definition for functional disorders, (that is the main focus of psychiatry) has not yet been discovered since, functional disorders do no have an observable pathology.


More people died during the last 200 years as a direct result of scientific human experimentation on the human mind, than all American soliders that fought and died in every American War since 1776. These human test subjects were taken from their bedsides at psychiatric hospitals in many regions of the world and were subjected to scientific tests that included psychological and physical torture. Three locations of these acts of human rights and human freedoms violations that took place during the last 200 years are: (1); William James's "James Room" experiements at Harvard College (over 200 years ago), (2); Wilhelm Wundt's human experiements at Berlin College, and Bonn College, (3); B. F. Skinner's human experiements during the mid-19th century that took place in Germany.

A division of National Medical Enterprises will plead guilty to charges of Medicare fraud and conspiracy and pay a record fine of $362.7 million to settle a sweeping federal investigation, company officials said Tuesday.
The settlement with the Santa Monica, Calif.based hospital firm, expected to be announced Wednesday, surpasses any previous fine in a U.S. fraud case involving the health care or defense industries.

One day earlier, a former Dallas executive for National Medical’ s psychiatric division admitted making at least $20 million in bribes to referring physicians and other health care professionals. Peter Alexis, former “administrator of the year” for Psychiatric Institutes of America, pleaded guilty to conspiracy and false-statement charges Monday before U.S. District Judge Joe Kendall in Dallas.

Company spokeswoman Diana Takvam said the timing was coincidental and followed a preliminary settlement reached earlier this year.
Under the settlement, National Medical’s psychiatric hospital subsidiary will plead guilty in Washington, D.C., to six counts of paying illegal kickbacks to gain referrals of Medicare patients and one count of conspiracy to make such payments.

Investigators have accused National Medical of accepting patients who did not need treatment and keeping them against their will until their insurance coverage ran out. Complaints from some of those patients over the last few years touched off federal and state prosecutions.

The federal charges cover bribes and kickbacks at six hospitals, in California, Colorado, Indiana, Missouri, Texas and New Jersey, from 1986 to 1991.
The company said it also has agreed to pay an additional $16.3 million to resolve potential claims in 28 states, including Texas, where it operated psychiatric hospitals.

It expects to reach a final agreement in those cases within 30 days.
More than 100 private lawsuits have been filed since 1991 against the hospital management company, alleging insurance fraud, overtreatment and malpractice.

In Texas, most of the private lawsuits involved patients at Brookhaven Psychiatric Pavilion in Farmers Branch, Psychiatric Institute of Fort Worth and Willowbrook Psychiatric Institute in Waxahachie. Those hospitals since have been sold, along with most of National Medical’s other 61 psychiatric hospitals. “This settlement will signify that NME is taking full responsibility for past conduct in certain of its businesses,” said Jeffrey C. Barbakow, brought in last year as president and chief executive to clean up the company’s problems.

The settlement – still subject to approval by a federal judge – would resolve all civil and criminal investigations of the hospital chain.
The settlement includes $364.2 million in civil restitution and penalties, $33 million in criminal fines and $4.5 million in contributions to federally funded mental health programs.
The agreement leaves open the possibility of criminal prosecution of current and former National Medical employees and doctors affiliated with the hospital operator.

In May, the company announced that it had reached a preliminary agreement with federal authorities and had set aside a reserve fund of $375 million to cover expected settlement costs.
Prosecutors said this case provided the best window yet on misconduct in medicine.
In the medical world, said Paul E. Coggins, the U.S. attorney in Dallas, “Practices that are illegal have been accepted and tolerated, very much akin to the climate that pervaded the savings and loans.” Oliver “Buck” Revell, special agent in charge of the Dallas FBI office, said federal investigators do not believe that the scandals involving National Medical and Psychiatric Institutes are isolated. “We believe there are others,” Mr. Revell said. “We will likely find similar problems in other major health-care institutions.


The American Psychiatric Association consists of Psychiatrists of whom all share the same scientific roots to that of William James, and Wilhelm Wundt, B. F. Skinner, of whom all three conducted human scientific experiments on living human beings that were taken from their bedsides at many large psychiatric hospitals from the U.S>, Canada, Germany, U.K., and the like from the late 18th century until the late 20th century.

The total number of deaths due to the result of all of these human scientific experiments on living human test subjects taken from their besides at psychiatric hospitals during this 200 year time period is greater than the number of all American soldiers that fought and died in every American war from 1776 to the current day.



The Industrial Revolution period encompassing the vast social and economic changes that resulted from the development of steam powered machinery mass-production methods. It began in about 1760 in Great Britain extending through some of the first half of the nineteenth century. The lives of large sections of the population of Great Britain underwent massive changes during the industrial revolution. Work became more regimented and disciplined and began to take place outside the home. A movement of the population to the cities from the countryside produced dramatic changes in lifestyle.
The Industrial belt of Britain stretched from the Scottish lowlands to the valleys of southern Wales. The establishment of major factory centers helped develop networks of canals, roads, and railroads. Some of these major factory centers are Derbyshire, Lancashire, Manchester, Nottinghamshire, and Yorkshire. This is where the proletariat class was born. The Industrial Revolution helped create opportunities for employment for all members of the family. However, any improvement to the quality of life for the laboring class had come from a hard and bitter experience from factory labor.

Imagine sending your 16 year old - that placed in two national competitions for math and for music that earned a 3.65 GPA at the second highest academically ranked high school for that year in the USA while he started for the high school football team as a wide receiver, started for the high school baseball team as a starting center fielder, started for the (winter) indoor track team as a 500 meter and 4 by 400 meter sprinter and relayer -- to a psychiatric mental hospital and, to remain in group homes for the mentally disabled until 22 years of age. Suggesting to him that it's a good idea to remain in the mental health "system" for the rest of his life, drugged with tranquilizers and anti-convulsive medication.
This happened to me.

You are wrong not knowing the Scriptures

“Jesus answered and said to them, “You are mistaken, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God.” Matthew‬ ‭22:29‬ ‭NKJV

“But Jesus replied to them, You are wrong because you know neither the Scriptures nor God's power.” Matthew‬ ‭22:29‬ ‭AMP‬‬

“Jesus replied, “Your mistake is that you don’t know the Scriptures, and you don’t know the power of God.” Matthew‬ ‭22:29‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“Jesus answered, “You’re off base on two counts: You don’t know your Bibles, and you don’t know how God works. Matthew‬ ‭22:29 MSG‬‬

It is erroneous to think of heaven in terms of earth. Life in heaven will not be an extension of this present temporal existence. The power of God will provide for new and greater relationships that transcend the physical relationships of the present order.

You are deceived in thinking that there will be marriages in the next life as in this one, and in believing that there will be no resurrection (Mt. 22:23). You do not know either the Scriptures or the power of God to resurrect men. Men and women in the resurrection will not marry.

In context this Scripture is in response to the ignorant trying to get one over on Jesus. Jesus response was to the resurrection, correcting them about heaven having nothing to do with marriage. But you know every error is error not knowing and obeying the Scriptures.

I watched something last week someone I know recommended. Tony Robbins "I'm not a guru." I DO NOT recommend this documentary. I don't care how many times someone says God. Next to the Democrats title, "Stupid on Display," this has to be a close second for those who chose that path. Words like energy, the way, the truth and life mentioned. A demonic practice of yoga, demonic gestures of pagan religion and Christian terms emptied and redefined to accommodate a false belief of freedom and deliverance. This is metaphysics with pagan practices. I'm not sure whats worse, the evil practice of Scientology documentary I watched a month ago or this Tony Robbins seminar. The end result is spiritual death.

“There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭14:12‬ ‭NKJV

“There is a way which seems right to a man and appears straight before him, but at the end of it is the way of death.” Proverbs‬ ‭14:12‬ ‭AMP‬‬

There are at least three people I know that follow this guy and a few have been to his seminars. "Run for your life.". I don't care how free you think you are by attending one of these things, the finality of it all is death, hell and the grave.

When a person mentions the way, the truth and the life and never mentions Jesus, never mentions deliverance is of the Lord, never mentions the Prince of Peace, run, run, run, run, run, run, run and far away from them as possible, you can't run fast enough. When a man takes all the glory, never giving glory to God, and praising an abusive mother for his success, run, run, run before the lighting that falls in his direction hits you, run. I don't care if you feel free and are healthy wealthy and think your wise, run.

“But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted—you may well put up with it!” II Corinthians‬ ‭11:3-4‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John‬ ‭14:5-6‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Christ Is a Sevenfold Way

-The only way to God (Mt. 7:14; Jn. 10:1,7,9; 14:6)
-The way of escape (1Cor. 10:13)
-The way into the holiest (Heb. 9:8-15; 10:19-23)
-The new and living way (Heb. 10:20; 5:9)
-The way of truth (2Pet. 2:2)
-The right way (2Pet. 2:15)
-The way of righteousness (2Pet. 2:21; 1Cor. 1:30)

c [truth] This word is used by Jesus in John 22 times and only 4 times by Him in the other gospels.
-He is the truth of God that sets free (Jn. 8:32-36; 14:6).
-He is the teacher and source of truth (Mt. 22:16; Mk. 12:14; Jn. 1:14,17).
d [life] This word is used 44 times in John and only 38 times in the other gospels. ---
-Christ is the source of eternal life. See note, Jn. 6:27.
e [no man cometh unto the Father, but by me] Acts 4:12; Eph. 2:18.

Dr. Ron Carlson asked a question many years ago. He said, "Have you ever wondered why Jesus said, "the way, the truth, the life?" Because if you have ever been lost, He is showing you the way. If you have ever been lied to or deceived, He is showing you the truth. If you have ever faced death, He is showing you life. In Him we live and move and have our being.

“And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’ Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man’s devising. Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.”” Acts‬ ‭17:26-31‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Tony Robbins practices are found in the new age movement

New Age Definitions
The New Age has its own definitions of spiritual issues:
1. God: No personal God at all; just a cosmic force, a fragment of which is in us; therefore we are gods. There is often a male/ female polarity in this “force” (yin/ yang). 2. Jesus: A man who evolved into an Ascended Master (godlike being) through occult and metaphysical disciplines.
3. Christ: An impersonal “force” that rested on the man Jesus and made him special, but which has also rested on others, and can even rest on us.
4. The Bible: At best a work of cabalistic secrets that can only be understood by “Masters.” At worst a stupid book of Jewish legends.
5. Salvation: By works of occult discipline. The law of karma is irresistible and is what judges us.
6. Denial of Death: Belief in reincarnation. Most New Agers believe that humans can evolve into gods through many lifetimes.
7. Magical Worldview: View of universe as a machine that can be manipulated through sophisticated mental and spiritual technology—no sovereign God.
8. Intolerance of Monotheism: Jews, Christians, and Muslims regarded as counterrevolutionary. They must either evolve or be purified.

Roots of the New Age Historical antecedents of the New Age movement can be found in several major religious groups:
1. Witchcraft and shamanism (prehistoric)
2. Astrology (c. 2000 B.C.)
3. Hinduism and Yoga (c. 1800 B.C.) The recent doctrinal ancestors of the New Age movement can be found within the dogma of several nineteenth-century cults:
1. Swedenborgianism (c. 1792) a) Communication with the dead b) Spiritual evolution c) Denial of the trinity
2. Mormonism (c. 1830) a) Man can become a god b) Preexistence
c) Salvation through secret knowledge d) Confusion between matter and spirit
3. Spiritualism (1848) a) Belief in communication with the dead b) Cultivation of mediumistic powers (channeling) c) Reincarnation
4. Christian Science and the Mind Science cults (c. 1862) a) God is a force, not a person b) Mind can control matter; reality is what you make it c) Sin does not exist, nor does death
5. The Theosophical Society and Lucis Trust (1875) a) Christianity regarded as deevolutionary b) Belief in Ascended Masters who guide the earth c) “Root races” and an evolutionary “Plan” for mankind d) “Spiritual racism” and anti-Semitism

Ferment of the Sixties and Seventies The immediate beginnings of the New Age movement can be found in the cultural ferment of the 1960s:
1. The hippie counterculture
2. Interest in drugs and mysticism
3. Destruction of traditional morality
4. Feminism, Wicca, and ecology
5. Humanistic and transpersonal psychology
6. World disarmament and various “hunger” projects
7. Secular humanism

There are two major schools of New Age thought. The first is what we might call Consciousness Renaissance, a permutation in which mankind is stepping beyond its self-imposed limits to merge with the unlimited powers of an already-utopian universe.
This philosophy works from the perspective that man’s true mind has been veiled by his own ignorance and limits, and that man is divine and perfect, the world is divine and perfect, the whole cosmos is divine and perfect, and we are all part of the same divinity. We will achieve this state of perfection by unitedly meditating and willing the thing to happen. The more adherents who work at this, the quicker this state of perfection will be reached. All we need to do in order to claim our godhood, both as individuals and as an entire world, is to step into the reality of our perfection and divinity, thereby releasing our god-nature and merging with our own heaven on earth.
The second major branch of New Age thought can be termed the “Quantum Leap of Consciousness.” When sufficient momentum is generated by enough people having developed higher consciousness, then the entire world will be ready to take that quantum leap into a higher dimension. In contrast to Consciousness Renaissance, this explosion into the New Age will come as we ready ourselves to accept the gift of new life from powers beyond us. This giant step into cosmic reality will take place in a moment of time. It sees mankind on the edge of a massive evolutionary explosion in which we all wake up one morning in a new world where we are all one with divinity and power and goodness.
There are varied concepts as to what form this divine intervention will take: highly evolved humanoids, or some high council of god-men who are the Ascended Masters of another time or another world, or some other all-powerful divine beings who have benevolent motives which are pure, beyond our understanding.
There is a lot of overlapping between the two schools of thought, but the most dangerous school from the Christian perspective is surely the Quantum Leap of Consciousness group. This is because Consciousness Renaissance involves lifting oneself up into godhood, into that utopian heaven that awaits just beyond the third dimension, while Quantum Leap of Consciousness involves mankind interacting with powerful, enlightened entities from outside the human experience.
This second philosophy is much more bent toward the mystical and the occult, with doors open wide to every imaginable demonic force. Every form of witchcraft and black magic is spun into the fabric of this aspect of the New Age.

The Phony Answer

The sweet taste of the “inner peace” of the New Age movement seems to hold the answer to all our problems, and the movement is sweeping the world. Time magazine of December 7, 1987, published a major article on Shirley MacLaine promoting the New Age. She had a five-hour miniseries on ABC television entitled “Out on a Limb,” based upon her bestselling book by the same title.
According to her story, MacLaine’s spiritual search did not lead her to Jesus Christ and the Bible, but to New Age channelers, mediums, and spiritists who told her to go
down to the Bolivian Andes in South America, where she was to encounter UFOs that would land and where aliens would communicate the New Age wisdom. When Shirley was asked what this New Age wisdom was, she responded by saying that
...the New Age is man being divine, man can become God. Man does not need a savior, he can save himself through cyclic rebirth and reincarnation.
Many of the environmental and ecology movements are enthusiastically adopting the New Age movement, for in the New Age the earth is our mother. In order to save ourselves, we need to save Mother Earth because we have all evolved out of the earth. We share the same hydrogen explosion that formed the earth. We are one with it.
This pantheistic worldview actually comes out of Hinduism and Buddhism. From Eastern Hindu mysticism comes the belief in transmigration, known in the West as reincarnation—the doctrine that man can purge himself of sin and karma through cyclic rebirth or reincarnation.
The New Age masters have realized that they can take advantage of the present chaotic state of mankind by offering our disturbed world a tasty kind of peace that soothes the jangled nerves of society without society having to deal with its Creator.

But the solid rock of Calvary has always offered the firm foundation of faith to withstand all the fiery barbs of the onslaught. It holds the answers to all the puzzles and pressures of life and brings an everlasting peace within to everyone everyone who will let go of self and hold on to Christ. When people refuse to reach out to Calvary and instead try to pull from within themselves, they trade a host of painful, unsolvable problems for a temporary fix known as the New Age movement. The only way anyone will ever have a true relationship with the mighty, creative God of this universe is through His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ.

3 Money-Smart Reasons To Downsize Your Home: Living big isn’t necessarily living better. Apartment buildings, townhouses and multiplexes have become the new normal for increasing numbers of individuals, couples and families. It’s clear that for many people, smaller spaces are smarter, too. This attitude is more than just a trend. According to TIME Magazine, multi-family dwellings like condominiums accounted for 40% of new construction in the United States in 2014 and the movement shows few signs of slowing down. The change isn’t surprising when considering the benefits to moving, especially when it comes to sheer cost-savings. Whether residents are spending less cash or conserving their valuable time and resources, they’re going to see a difference in their bank accounts. Here are three money-smart reasons to downsize that can lead to big savings. 1. Reduced Maintenance Maintaining a single-family dwelling can be difficult. Clearing gutters, painting walls, weeding the garden and other unpleasant tasks have serious costs, as residents are forced to invest their valuable time and resources into these recurring chores. Switching to a smaller space means less maintenance, which can lead to serious savings. Multi-family dwellings typically have a building manager who is responsible for upkeep, leading to serious savings. 2. Heating, Water and More Utilities are much less costly after downsizing. The less square footage a home has, the less electricity, water and other utilities it will require. Residents have the potential to save hundreds of dollars in costs. There’s also an added benefit if there are shared utilities divided between other residents of multi-family dwellings. Splitting subscriptions or services like Internet and cable can lead to much lower prices. Moving to smaller spaces makes these invoices less expensive, which gives residents a bonus every month. 3. Location is Key Apartment buildings, condominiums and other compact dwellings are often located in central areas close to useful services and businesses. This convenience is a major cost-cutting reason that encourages many people to move. The Nielsen Company actually found that 62% of millennials would choose to live in communities that combine residential homes and businesses. By being closer to things they value, residents save themselves time, a valued commodity. Why Moving is a Smart Move These three money-smart reasons are major factors into why people move into smaller spaces. It’s hard to resist saved time and resources, reduced maintenance, lower utility bills and increased convenience.

https://plus.google.com/111429276509442296910 Breaking Duluth News : The ascension of Donald Trump has set off a new round of soul-­searching among “the media,” a term now...
The ascension of Donald Trump has set off a new round of soul-­searching among “the media,” a term now so broad that it includes everything from The New York Times to cable news to self­-edited bloggers to anyone with a Twitter account. What responsibility does this sprawling aggregation of voices have for Trump’s status today? Is it as simplistic as asserting that he was irresistible catnip to ratings-­chasing TV executives? If so, how do you account for the avalanche of negative coverage he has received and still flourished? What has “the media” missed or misunderstood about his audience? As you may have noticed, America’s press corps has no shortage of critics. Currently, the profession of journalism has roughly the same approval rating as Congress, which is just barely above that of pedophiles. Sensing a moment for another exercise in self­-examination (or self-­flagellation), New York magazine dispatched writers to interview a couple dozen prominent practitioners of some variation of journalism. Having read more of these sorts of things than I care to remember, I was struck by both the quality of the cast ­­ — people like Steven Brill, a veteran exemplar of long­-form and genuinely deeply reported dives into broadly relevant issues (his 25,000-­word gold standard story on America’s absurd health-care system, “The Bitter Pill,” consumed nearly an entire issue of TIME magazine in 2013); David Simon, the former Baltimore Sun beat reporter turned creator of “The Wire”; Dean Baquet, editor of The New York Times; academics like the oft-­quoted Jay Rosen, an NYU journalism professor —­­ and the quality of their responses. Even conservative players like Tucker Carlson of The Daily Caller offer sharp­-edged analyses of what the country’s news system does right ... and mostly wrong. The interviews sprawl across a wide expanse of topics (the magazine provides links to each conversation in full), so there’s plenty from which to cherry pick. For the purposes of this story, I’ve plucked a handful that jumped out at me, or appealed to my personal biases, that being a recurring criticism from the chosen subjects. I think it’s useful to see Trump as very much like an independent television production company that has a hit show called Trump. Or Trump for President. Media ownership, let’s say TV executives, want that show really badly. And this gives him more power than the network’s own people, or their own journalists sometimes — it’s almost like they would rather go for an outside source for their programming than to their own people. So because he produces this show, Trump for President, that has amazing ratings, he was able to command what was called in the trade “free media” — that’s a fascinating phrase in itself. Trump, the independent producer with the hit show, was kind of irresistible.
 — Jay Rosen, professor of journalism at NYU. Comment: Trump clearly understood the value he was bringing to television networks in particular. And it simply isn’t credible for any executive, from Jeff Zucker at CNN to Phil Griffin at MSNBC to the traditional network heads to pretend that Trump’s ability to draw and hold eyeballs wasn’t key to the amount of airtime they lavished on him, certainly in the early primary season, before he became the presumptive nominee. The point of reflection for television executives, should they decide to reflect, is why, since Trump is a fellow New Yorker long familiar to them, didn’t they commence a full and fair reiteration of his business career simultaneous with their all­-in horse race coverage? The media did not create Trump. I don’t think the media missed a story of Trump, or failed to scrutinize Trump — that’s a ridiculous criticism. The criticism that might be valid is whether the media understood the circumstances that caused so many Americans to vote for Donald Trump. It’s always hard to have your finger on the pulse of the country. It’s one of those things that we’re always beating ourselves up for. We probably didn’t quite understand the deep economic fallout after the financial crisis a few years ago. There were fewer national correspondents out in the country, and we’re one of the last institutions to have a big national staff. That’s probably part of it. Some of the anger was quiet, and Donald Trump came along and turned the volume up. The anger hadn’t quite showed up in ways that were obvious until he came along. But our job is to be out in the country, trying to understand the country, and to reflect the country back to itself in some way. — Dean Baquet, executive editor of the New York Times. Comment: The reference to being “out in the country” is an interesting one. While Baquet is arguing from the perspective of one of the country’s last remaining national newspapers, it reflects an awareness that reporters and editors in general do not have a particularly good feel, good “sourcing” if you will, among the population responding most intensely to Trump’s message. Mainstream media take pains (and make a great show of taking those pains) to cover minority groups. But in many cases the stories produced are sympathetic. Minorities victimized by discrimination, and such. But with a group composed primarily of whites making so often ill-­informed, racially based complaints about their victimization, how do you apply sympathy? Specifically the kind of sympathy than engenders good will and builds sources? Moreover, how much time does the average college-­educated, professional journalist spend with such people? We all underestimated him at first. He was, by every analysis, a ridiculous premise as a presidential candidate. He remains so. But Trump has been caught up on any number of idiocies, offenses and affronts and it just doesn't matter. Like Huey Long or Father Coughlin, his outrages — even when carefully reported — serve only to excite some of those who are having their deep anger at the status quo fingered by Trump. The press has been fine at holding Trump to his [bleep]­-headedness, and while there is some criticism that can be directed at the media for over­reporting him in the run up to New Hampshire, since then he has been the leader in the GOP field. He gets legitimate attention for being such. I think the press has been exceptionally unimportant at assessing the American status quo for the last twenty years, for losing sight of the trends that were producing the anger that has led to Trump, and in a healthier sense, to Sanders. The marginalization of labor, the purchase of government, the rampant drug war, mass incarceration, the demeaning of the working class and the brutalities of globalization — we told those stories too late or not at all. That was our complacency. This is just one more election cycle. — David Simon, creator of the Wire and former reporter for the Baltimore Sun. 
Comment: Here again the observation that American journalism, certainly in the forms consumed by most of the population, hasn’t done the job it needed to do to gauge and chronicle the antipathies welling up, particularly among the white lower middle class. Of course the media failed. But they’ve failed with conservatism all along. Now it’s reached a full boil, where suddenly you can’t ignore the failure. You can’t keep ignoring this thing that you call the fringe. We talk about a 10 percent factor of American society; that’s not a fringe, it’s 30 million people. But beyond all that, it’s the idea of the journalist measuring a story’s importance by the scale of the stage on which it occurs, rather than by the depth of meaning it reveals. You go back to the Scopes "monkey’ trial" — the famous evolution trial. Every paper in America declared fundamentalism dead. Good call on that one. In fact, you can find that declaration about every five years. And the reason they keep getting it wrong is that they’re guided by the idea of trends. If creationists’ candidates are not in office, then they don’t stop existing. They’re still there, and they’ll have kids, and they’ll raise their kids to believe these things. [The media failed to see this] not because the press is so left, but because the press is so relentlessly center. ... If you have left, center, and right, the center is a position, no more, no less than any other, right? And that tends to skew things. I think that same effect, unfortunately, ripples out from the political realm into other aspects of life. — Jeff Sharlet, magazine journalist and professor of English at Dartmouth. Comment: This speaks to the tradition of neutral objectivity in reporting and to some extentstory choice. The idea that the center is a “pure zone,” a temperate, moderate place best suited for a fair (and balanced) presentation of conflict is a concept that needs fresh debate. How often is this center simply a refuge from asserting a demonstrable, verifiable truth? How often is it a safe zone for journalists fearful of blowback, both partisan and financial? Also, how accurately can this temperate, self­-consciously well­-mannered center comprehend and explain the forces of irrationality? There’s this relatively new principle of journalism that journalists are supposed to be neutral and free of opinion. What that means is that journalists are increasingly discouraged from ever doing anything other than saying, "Here’s what one side says, and here’s what the other side says." That shows you’re objective. When Harry Reid says one thing and Mitch McConnell says the other, then you get to report that, it’s easy. When you don’t have that, when you have to go searching for it, or when there’s not this clean conflict, it’s difficult to pretend that you’re neutral. — Glenn Greenwald, co­founding editor of The Intercept. Comment: I don’t know about “relatively new,” but Greenwald’s underlying point is a challenge to the lazy but entirely acceptable tradition of “both sides equally” reporting. He’s questioning both the journalistic value of this concept of reporting and the sustainability of it at a time when start­ups like his, ProPublica and various fact checkers are bringing near simultaneous veracity-­assessment —­­ of assertions, statements and claims individuals and organizations —­­ into their work. The real problem with journalism is groupthink. My father was a journalist — he never graduated from high school, he joined the Marines as a 17­-year-­old and then went to work at the L.A. Times. It was not a profession; it was a trade, and you had a whole diverse field of people entering it. Now, for a bunch of reasons — and this is the problem with American society more broadly, in my view — it’s just a masturbatorium, filled with people who think exactly the same, who are from the same backgrounds, who have the same assumptions about everything. And you get a much less interesting product when you have that. And you also get a lot of fearful people. A lot of people who are too dumb to go into finance, so they went into journalism instead. And they get older and they realize, "I’ve got tuitions, and this is actually a pretty shaky business model on which to build a career," and they just become unwilling to take any risk at all. When was the last time you saw anybody in the press — except the fringe press — really write a piece that challenged the assumptions of their neighbors? That would actually make their friends in Brooklyn avert their gaze? — Tucker Carlson, founder and editor in chief of the Daily Caller. Comment: For all the attention paid to bringing diversity to newsrooms, the grand irony remains that regardless of gender or race there is still a significant overlay of homogeneity in the staffing of such places. It’s as much a part of the selection-process criteria as the ability to report and compose a story, albeit far more implicit. Don’t agree? Let’s have the discussion. For the mainstream media, it’s no longer plausible to say, "Oh, we’re just going to be objective." How could you not have an opinion at this point, when your reporter is sitting there and Donald Trump is calling him an idiot? It’s not believable. I think that, at some point, the mainstream media — both rightfully and strategically — needs to shed that cloak of objectivity and say, point blank, "This is not a good person, this is not who should lead our country." They’re handicapping themselves by playing by a set of rules that no one else is playing by anymore. And if they continue to cede that ground, their influence will continue to be diminished. — Kurt Bardella, former Breitbart News Network spokesperson. Comment: There’s no danger of Bardella and Dean Baquet speaking from the same dais anytime soon. The former was a singularly cartoonish figure in New York Times reporter Mark Leibovich’s “This Town” that instantaneously classic dissection of D.C.’s media­political elite. But again, the embedded question is this: “At a time when a major political party has been taken over by a man with little to no respect for or interest in facts, and yet remains enormously appealing to millions of citizens, are you, as a professional journalist, providing full service to your readers/viewers by treating him, on the basis of verifiable facts, as anything other than a fraud?” If it’s still a bridge too far, Bardella is correct when he says hundreds of others have already crossed it. | @MinnPost
Sharp-edged analyses cite multiple failures in media's coverage of Trump
What responsibility does this sprawling aggregation of voices have for Trump’s status today? What has “the media” missed or misunderstood about his audience?

3 Money-Smart Reasons To Downsize Your Home: Living big isn’t necessarily living better. Apartment buildings, townhouses and multiplexes have become the new normal for increasing numbers of individuals, couples and families. It’s clear that for many people, smaller spaces are smarter, too. This attitude is more than just a trend. According to TIME Magazine, multi-family dwellings like condominiums accounted for 40% of new construction in the United States in 2014 and the movement shows few signs of slowing down. The change isn’t surprising when considering the benefits to moving, especially when it comes to sheer cost-savings. Whether residents are spending less cash or conserving their valuable time and resources, they’re going to see a difference in their bank accounts. Here are three money-smart reasons to downsize that can lead to big savings. 1. Reduced Maintenance Maintaining a single-family dwelling can be difficult. Clearing gutters, painting walls, weeding the garden and other unpleasant tasks have serious costs, as residents are forced to invest their valuable time and resources into these recurring chores. Switching to a smaller space means less maintenance, which can lead to serious savings. Multi-family dwellings typically have a building manager who is responsible for upkeep, leading to serious savings. 2. Heating, Water and More Utilities are much less costly after downsizing. The less square footage a home has, the less electricity, water and other utilities it will require. Residents have the potential to save hundreds of dollars in costs. There’s also an added benefit if there are shared utilities divided between other residents of multi-family dwellings. Splitting subscriptions or services like Internet and cable can lead to much lower prices. Moving to smaller spaces makes these invoices less expensive, which gives residents a bonus every month. 3. Location is Key Apartment buildings, condominiums and other compact dwellings are often located in central areas close to useful services and businesses. This convenience is a major cost-cutting reason that encourages many people to move. The Nielsen Company actually found that 62% of millennials would choose to live in communities that combine residential homes and businesses. By being closer to things they value, residents save themselves time, a valued commodity. Why Moving is a Smart Move These three money-smart reasons are major factors into why people move into smaller spaces. It’s hard to resist saved time and resources, reduced maintenance, lower utility bills and increased convenience.
