***

On Sunday night, January 26th, the Grammy Awards show pulled a fast one and made all its viewing audience participate as witness to the “exchange of vows” between heterosexual, interracial, and same-sex couples.  The society that we live in has been taken over by an abominable sin parading around under the banner of so-called “equality”.  The Torah clearly states that sodomy is an abomination worthy of stoning.  One would think that the acknowledgement of the fact that homosexuality and lesbianism are unacceptable behavior would come from the Vatican…..not so.

The following article was taken from the website “rt.com”:

Veteran guard claims 'secret gay society' inside Vatican

is a security threat

There is a “network of homosexuals” inside the Vatican that could present a security risk to the Pope, according to a former commander of the Swiss Guard in what is just the latest in a number of allegations of homosexuality inside the Catholic Church.

Elmar Mäder - who served as commandant of the Swiss Guard, the small force charged with protecting the pontiff inside the Vatican, from 2002 through 2008 – said he cannot refute the claim that there is a network of homosexuals. My experience would indicate the existence of such a thing.”

Mäder, 50, was speaking to Schweiz am Sonntag, the same Swiss newspaper that reported earlier this month an anonymous guardsman said he was the subject of over 20 “unambiguous sexual requests” from clergymen inside Vatican City.

Numerous former officials have come forward in recent years to tell members of the international press that the Vatican, while officially against homosexuality, turns a blind eye to same-sex relations inside the city. Mäder said he is not coming forward out of intolerance, but to avoid the creation of a secret community inside the holy city.

Mäder admitted he would not have promoted a gay member of the Swiss Guard because “the risk of disloyalty would have been too high.”

I also learned that many homosexuals are inclined to be more loyal to each other than to other people or institutions,” he said. If this loyalty were to go so far as to become a network or even a kind of secret society, I would not tolerate it in my sphere of decision making. Key people in the Vatican now seem to think similarly.”

What Mäder may have been referring to was Pope Francis’ headline-grabbing interview with reporters on a flight to the Vatican from Brazil last year, in which he indicated for the first time in recent memory that the Church may be becoming more tolerant.

They say there are some gay people here,” Francis said. “I think that when we encounter a gay person, we must make the distinction between the fact of a person being gay and the fact of a lobby, because lobbies are not good…Who am I to judge?”

The anonymous guard who spoke to Schweiz am Sonntag earlier this month said that a priest had invited him to dinner before saying the guard should be served for dessert. In another instance, he said, a senior member of the clergy fondled him and left a bottle of whiskey on his bed.

While that source went unnamed, he criticized the Vatican for its “hypocrisy,” a charge inspired by the church’s opposition to marriage equality and treatment of divorced heterosexual couples.

Mäder’s comments have drawn criticism from equality groups, with one advising the former commandant to “become better informed” and another, Franco Grillini, the chairman of Gaynet saying that any fears were unfounded.

Statistically, gays are the least violent group in human society, so if the people were really surrounded by homosexuality, he could sleep easy,” Grillini told the Guardian. - Published time: January 21, 2014 02:29; Edited time: January 21, 2014 04:44

WHY AREN’T WE CONCERNED

ABOUT THE FATE OF BLACK PEOPLES?

 

When will we be outraged

like other groups who speak out and protest for their human rights?

 

Why aren’t Blacks doing all they can

to rise above this captivity, brainwashing, and injustice we face on a daily basis?

 

What keeps us from fighting for our progeny like other peoples?

 

And finally,

 

Since dependence upon man is of no avail, why not CALL UPON GOD for HIS HELP?

 

January 2014

 

Just in case no one noticed, descendants of Slaves have no voice in the United States, in the United Nations, or in the world for that matter, and no one is doing anything about it.  The powers and the wealth are all in the hands of the descendants of the Slave Masters.  From 1492 to the present, more than 500 years, Blacks of all nationalities have suffered horrendously at the hands of Europeans.  And just because the Caucasians in the US are called Americans and Whites, though born in South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, etc., they are still Europeans.

 

Has anyone given serious thought to the fact that the Slave Trade is almost identical to that of the Biblical Israelites’ bondage in Ancient Egypt?  I use “Ancient” because the people in Egypt today are not the seed of Pharaoh but are Arabians.  Nevertheless, Blacks today are still in captivity and under the control of the United States government.    Although the Slave Masters may have ended Slavery, per se, they never gave us our FREEDOM and LIBERTY to leave out and pursue happiness.

 

Of course, some want to cite a Black President as an indication of Black empowerment and progress…PUHLEASE!!!  Where is our self-determination!!!  Where is our voice in demanding anything that would establish better lives for the Blacks in this country?  We know there is no voice because we are not together rising up for our own well-being as do other groups in this country and in the world.

 

President Obama has had numerous opportunities to sit and consult with Blacks on our dilemma and life in the ghetto, he has had the opportunity to discuss Reparations for the Slave Trade, and he has had the opportunity to select a Black for two positions on the US Supreme Court, but would not do it.  Are there not qualified Black Judges capable of sitting on the US Supreme Court?  Given the racist individuals in these positions, it is my guess that any Black with the heart to ensure real justice served would have sufficed.  One need not be a genius in US law and the Constitution to know that equity and equality should take precedence over law and constitution if the real intention is for “justice for all” in the U.S. 

 

Ever since the White man knew he had power and could take control over the lives of Blacks and even of all nationalities without fear of reprisal, Blacks and all people of color have been subjugated and exploited for centuries.  Does President Obama know these things?  Even if he does, he should have at least attempted to put a Black on the US Supreme Court to ensure fairness in cases of racism.  Because of the First Family’s complacent attitude concerning Blacks, I am wondering if the President or the First Lady studied Black History.  Of a truth that subject should be the prerequisite for positions in Congress, public servants, and for the office of the president of the US.  That would make for a great sensitivity course and training even for the Black president of the United States, as it would appear that he has forgotten all about the Black Plight. 

 

Had President Obama put a Black person on the US Supreme Court, we could have at least said, well he’s trying to do something to help end discrimination.  But by not doing so, he has told us in no uncertain terms that his advisers advise against it because he is a president for all the people, and that if he does something for Blacks it will look as if he is showing favoritism for Blacks!  Really?  How about the favoritism he demonstrates for the Gays, Hispanics, White Women, and “Jews”?   So, why not do a little someth’, somethin’ for Blacks? 

 

ON WHAT GROUNDS DO WE HAVE A RIGHT TO REPARATIONS?

 

The list is endless for reasons as to why descendants of Slaves are due restitution for the Slave Trade!  Our forebears were forcibly migrated, ethnically cleansed, and enslaved under savage and inhumane conditions for generations.  And the Whites who enslaved them to this day feel that they have done no wrong, hence, the reason they will not address the injustice and pain and suffering our forebears endured during the Slave Trade. 

 

Slaves were also deceived and coerced to believe in a man-made religion for two reasons, which were precisely intended to divert attention from the CREATOR GOD and to make them docile and passive Slaves.  The White man’s contrived efforts to deceive the Slaves were the epitome of evil.  They stripped Slaves of a right to obtain an education with an eternal endeavor to keep them illiterate and enslaved perpetually.  And in the White Man’s effort to hide the Truth about the CREATOR GOD, he obviously said:

 

Let’s give them our god, the one invented during the days of the Roman rule.  Let’s give these wretched savages a ‘saviour’, one they can believe in and worship and one that they will believe will give them hope and eternal life in the end.  Yeah, when they see what god we worship, they will want to worship him, too.  And this will make them happy to want what we have.  Then they won’t be complaining all the time and won’t be rebelling against us, and even better, they will accept their fate.  Otherwise, we will have uprisings for sure, and this enterprise in free labor will be short lived.”

 

The Europeans who enslaved, raped, maimed, and brainwashed our forefathers were more subtle than the man in the Garden of Eden even before the CREATOR cursed him to go on his belly for deceiving Eve.

 

The first thing the Slaves should have thought about and questioned after being introduced to this Christian religion, which entailed worship of this “savior of the world”, is how is it, if he is so divine and good, why is it that they had never heard anything about him.  Their next thought should have been why wouldn’t this “savior” save them and help them as he had so generously served the Slavers.  And when nothing made any sense, they should have realized that this so-called “savior of the world” is a scam in place by the Slavers to deceive and use them for their own gain.  And of a truth, unto this day, this “savior” has done nothing to alleviate the horrid state of affairs of the Black man in the US, in the countries in Africa, or anywhere on this Earth for the oppression of this White man is widespread, deeply rooted, and without relief.

 

Belief in the Slave Masters’ god has not proven to be a worthwhile choice for anyone, not even for the Slave Masters.  Blacks suffer at the hands of our captors, and Whites with all their power and wealth suffer, as well, even from their own wicked doings. Consider what they have done with all their prosperity and assets amassed from our blood, sweat, and agony during the centuries of the Slave Trade.  And still, the descendants of the Slave Masters and their false savior have wreaked havoc all over the world and justice, saving the poor, and providing a voice for the less fortunate have nothing to do with the White Man’s mantra and motto - only “Survival of the fittest”! 

 

Was it the Slavers’ “saviour” that encouraged them to usurp the lands from the Native Americans?  Was it the Slavers’ “saviour” that was the impetus in stealing Blacks from the shores of Africa.  Was it the descendants of the Slavers’ saviour” that made them drop two Atom Bombs on two cities in Japan - killing innocent men, women, and children?  The Slave Masters and their descendants were and still are Christians.  So, what does that tell us?  They neither invest any credibility nor respect in their own organized Christian religion.  Could it be because they know it is a complete fabricated fraud?

 

CAN THE CREATOR GOD BE COMPARED WITH ANOTHER?

 

And God spake all these words, saying,

 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt,

out of the house of bondage.

 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image,

or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath,

or that is in the water under the earth.

 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them:

 for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers

upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

Exodus 20:1 - 5

 

And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount,

the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him,

Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses,

the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt,

we wot not what is become of him.

And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears,

and brought them unto Aaron.  And he received them at their hand,

and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said,

These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

And the Lord said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people,

which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves:  

They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them:

they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel,

which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

Exodus 32:1,3,4,7,8

 

For thou shalt worship no other god:

for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:

Exodus 34:14

 

Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eateth grass. They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt;

Psalm 106:20,21

 

And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you:

I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.  

To whom will ye liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like?

Isaiah 46:4,5

 

The thing that Christians do not know is that when the CREATOR GOD Created ALL THINGS, including mankind, in HIS infinite WISDOM, HE formed a Righteous Way of Life for the people HE Created, as well.  No one can compare with HIM and no one can invent another way of life to compare with HIS, either.  GOD’s Way of Life entails absolute worship of HIM and doing sacrifice and offerings that EXALT ONLY HIM.  We have Noah’s “grace in the eyes of the LORD” to prove it, for, as we should know, he was a “righteous” man before his GOD (Genesis 7:1).  And one can only be “Righteous” if one lives by GOD’s Ways! 

 

And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.   Exodus 24:12

 

And the Lord commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the Lord our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day.  And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the Lord our God, as he hath commanded us.  Deuteronomy 6:24,25

 

However, since CREATION, mankind has refused to live like Noah, and much less like what GOD Commanded of ALL Peoples, whether they are HIS Chosen/Covenant People or the Stranger (Deuteronomy 31:11,12)

 

 Unto this day they do after the former manners: they fear not the Lord, neither do they after their statutes, or after their ordinances, or after the law and commandment which the Lord commanded the children of Jacob, whom he named Israel;  With whom the Lord had made a covenant, and charged them, saying, Ye shall not fear other gods, nor bow yourselves to them, nor serve them, nor sacrifice to them:  But the Lord, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt with great power and a stretched out arm, him shall ye fear, and him shall ye worship, and to him shall ye do sacrifice.  And the statutes, and the ordinances, and the law, and the commandment, which he wrote for you, ye shall observe to do for evermore; and ye shall not fear other gods.  And the covenant that I have made with you ye shall not forget; neither shall ye fear other gods.  But the Lord your God ye shall fear; and he shall deliver you out of the hand of all your enemies.  Howbeit they did not hearken, but they did after their former manner.   II Kings 17:34 – 40

 

Give credence to what the CREATOR GOD has said about being a “Jealous GOD”.  Consider that “JEALOUS” is the definitive word and understand the full meaning it implies and the consequences of defying this JEALOUS CREATOR GOD.

 

When the CREATOR tells us that HE is a JEALOUS GOD, isn’t HE also saying that HE will not share PRAISE and GLORY due HIM with another?

 

When the CREATOR tells us that HE is a JEALOUS GOD, isn’t HE saying that HE will not share HIS POWER with another?

 

When the CREATOR tells us that HE is a JEALOUS GOD, isn’t HE saying that HE will not share HIS Holy Name with another?

 

When the CREATOR tells us that HE is a JEALOUS GOD, isn’t HE also saying that HE will not share HIS Holy Temple with another?

 

“JEALOUSY” conveys distrust and painful ramifications, e.g., we have known about the acts of jealous husbands, jealous women, jealous neighbors, and jealous co-workers, etc., etc.  Now, given the negative incidents we can recall because of jealousy, surely we should all be able to realize GOD’s Anger and Wrath at learning of people turning to another god, when HE is the ONE True and Living GOD that Created them!

 

Howbeit every nation made gods of their own, and put them in the houses of the high places which the Samaritans had made, every nation in their cities wherein they dwelt.   II Kings 17:29

 

Are you worshipping the right deity?   Is your deity the CREATOR of this Universe?  Is your deity able to save you from the hands of the wicked?  Does your deity fulfill all the hype, i.e., is he all that he’s cracked up to be?  Is your deity hearing your murmurings?  If not, then why not?  Is your deity holding up to the belief that he and the CREATOR are joined to form this Trinity?  

 

When the CREATOR GOD said that HE would punish HIS Chosen Ones and all peoples for their unrighteousness, how then can people be so gullible to believe that this man, JC, is able to change GOD’s WORD and forgive the wicked? 

 

With JC forgiving and dying for people’s sins, he only perpetuates the transgression.  This is common sense!  Why the Hell would we want mercy for corrupters, abusers, murderers, liars, thieves, adulterers and oppressors?  Don’t you know that it is just a matter of time before each and everyone of us is a victim at the hands of these very people JC supposedly forgave for their sins.   

 

 

 

I know and you know about the caliber of people in the Church.  Sure, some say they are sincere and say they are “saved”.  Really?  Saved from what when Christians who believe in this JC are dying from gunshot wounds, hunger, and disease every single day?  But who is taking note?

 

If the CREATOR GOD and this man, JC, make up this unfounded “Trinity”, why then hasn’t the Most High GOD of Hosts mentioned alliance with this man and corroborated with his dying and saving sinners business?  Let me explain why!  The reason is that the CREATOR Judges the sinners and the wicked and many with death for their sins and especially for worshipping another god.  The FLOOD of Noah’s Day, the complete annihilation of Sodom and Gomorrah, and even GOD’s exile of HIS Chosen People and the destruction of their Land are all Witnesses to the fact that the CREATOR GOD hates wickedness and uses the curse of death to end it. 

 

“Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.  For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.   Isaiah 13:9 - 11

 

“Therefore prophesy thou against them all these words, and say unto them, The Lord shall roar from on high, and utter his voice from his holy habitation; he shall mightily roar upon his habitation; he shall give a shout, as they that tread the grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth.  A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth; for the Lord hath a controversy with the nations, he will plead with all flesh; he will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith the Lord.   Jeremiah 25:30,31

 

“I said, Surely thou wilt fear me, thou wilt receive instruction; so their dwelling should not be cut off, howsoever I punished them: but they rose early, and corrupted all their doings.  Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the Lord, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.   Zephaniah 3:7,8

 

I am the Lord: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.   Isaiah 42:8

 

Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.   Isaiah 45:22,23

 

“For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the Lord, so shall your seed and your name remain.  And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord.   Isaiah 66:22,23   

 

FACE THE TRUTH AND ACCEPT GOD’s WORD:  HE IS A JEALOUS GOD AND WILL NOT TOLERATE THE WORSHIP OF ANOTHER!  YOU DON’T TURN AWAY FOR THE CREATOR GOD AND GET AWAY WITH IT!

 

“And the Lord said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves:  They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.  And the Lord said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:  Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation.   Exodus 32:7 – 10

 

“And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the Lord thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.  As the nations which the Lord destroyeth before your face, so shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient unto the voice of the Lord your God.   Deuteronomy 8:19,20

 

Why not choose the CREATOR GOD with the POWER, the GOD that manifests WONDERS and MIRACLES and the ONLY TRUE GOD with the ability to SAVE?  Do not tout belief in a Trinity that the CREATOR GOD never ordained!  Look to the GOD that saved in the past and that promises to SAVE AGAIN – if we will call upon HIM!

 

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.  Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.  And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.  And I will be found of you, saith the Lord: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the Lord; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.   Jeremiah 29:11 – 14

 

“And I will cause the captivity of Judah and the captivity of Israel to return, and will build them, as at the first.  And I will cleanse them from all their iniquity, whereby they have sinned against me; and I will pardon all their iniquities, whereby they have sinned, and whereby they have transgressed against me.  And it shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and an honour before all the nations of the earth, which shall hear all the good that I do unto them: and they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and for all the prosperity that I procure unto it.  Thus saith the Lord; Again there shall be heard in this place, which ye say shall be desolate without man and without beast, even in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, that are desolate, without man, and without inhabitant, and without beast,  The voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of them that shall say, Praise the Lord of hosts: for the Lord is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: and of them that shall bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the Lord. For I will cause to return the captivity of the land, as at the first, saith the Lord.   Jeremiah 33:7 - 11

 

“In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack. The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.  I will gather them that are sorrowful for the solemn assembly, who are of thee, to whom the reproach of it was a burden.  Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame.  At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the Lord.”   Zephaniah 3:16 – 20

 

Why would the JEALOUS Supreme BEING that is a SPIRIT, nonetheless, and that Created ALL things want to be compared with a man?  Whether this man is real or mere imagination, this Christian tale is about a man, and that would make him something stemming from the “dust of the Earth”.  Can the epitome of this foolishness be more bazar?  And wouldn’t comparing GOD with another make HIM less of the SUPREME BEING?  Tell me, how many people who have made an invention would be willing to share the rights of it with some Johnny-come-lately”?  Would you?

 

So, if GOD can Create ALL Things “GOOD” and a Righteous Way of Life, how can mere man second guess and revoke HIS Laws, Statutes, and Judgments that HE Commanded should be observed “for evermore” and replace them with his own religion? 

 

Given the state of this world – the murder, violence, rape, child abuse, immorality, theft, wars, turmoil, double standards, and injustice – it stands to reason that this is all because man rejects GOD’s “Perfect” LAW that HE wrote for the man HE Created, and nowhere can anyone find where HE changed it. 

 

Christianity does not give credence to GOD’s EVERLASTING Covenant that HE made with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that HE said we must “NOT FORGET” and said “neither shall ye fear other gods” (II Kings 17:38). 

 

But as for thee, stand thou here by me, and I will speak unto thee all the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which thou shalt teach them, that they may do them in the land which I give them to possess it.  Ye shall observe to do therefore as the Lord your God hath commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.   Deuteronomy 5:31,32

 

But who is seeking GOD’s Truth and paying attention to HIS WORDS at the mouth of HIS Prophets and not Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and Jane?  Seek to know the CREATOR.  By HIS own admission, HE is not a man!

 

God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?   Numbers 23:19

 

Our serving and worshipping other gods only renders a curse upon the guilty!  GOD’s punishment upon HIS Own Covenant People is the proof in the Truth of the matter!

 

“And the Lord shall scatter you among the nations, and ye shall be left few in number among the heathen, whither the Lord shall lead you.  And there ye shall serve gods, the work of men's hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.  But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.  When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the Lord thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice;  (For the Lord thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.”   Deuteronomy 4:27 – 31

 

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.  And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.  And I will be found of you, saith the Lord: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the Lord; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.”   Jeremiah 29:11 – 14

 

Nevertheless, let me make myself perfectly clear.  Just as the Children of Israel rejected the CREATOR’s Righteous Laws, Statutes, and Judgments, the peoples to whom GOD gave HIS Land, HIS Covenant People, and HIS World also defied HIM and changed HIS Ways and instilled their own pagan and religious culture and heathenish societies.  And these rulers who have GOD’s Earth in their hands, as we can see, appear ever so intelligent, but yet and still they have wreaked confusion in what is truly deemed Divine, Righteous, and Ethical – GOD’s WORD and HIS WAYS. 

 

This sinful global disorder is punishment for Israelite disobedience to GOD’s Righteous Way of Life (Leviticus 26th and Deuteronomy 28th Chapters).  That’s right; it was the CREATOR GOD of Israel’s HAND that expedited the Slave Trade and scattered the Children of Israel into the “Four Corners of the Earth” for worshipping false gods and for rejecting HIS Book of the Law.  Surprise, Surprise!  So, if you have not realized it yet, descendants of Slaves, the SEED of the Biblical Israelites, are under the control of heathens, and I cannot stress this fact enough.  However, not all Blacks are Israelites. 

 

The many peoples of European extraction who enslaved Blacks had no compassion for their Slaves and demonstrated no regard for morals, compassion, and decency.  Thus, GOD calls them “heathens” for good reason.  Their history stems from idolatry, murder, and conquer and divide while raping and abusing the women of the places they have usurped.  Actually, they have set no positive examples or standards even in their own lands, but rather they have set sanctions on poor nations that will in the end be their demise.  Unequivocally, people of color and GOD’s Earth have suffered tremendously because of heathens – peoples who worship false gods, cause the worst evils, merciless pain and suffering, and destruction of others, as well as animals while proclaiming to be the most intelligent of the “races”.   And ironically two billion people worship this useless and blasphemous Christian man-god of the heathens to whom the CREATOR GOD has no affinity.

 

And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.   II Chronicles 20:20

 

Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.  Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.   Psalm 149:2,3

 

I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.  Thou shalt have no other gods before me.  Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God…   Exodus 20:2 – 5

 

Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of the Lord your God, which he made with you, and make you a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, which the Lord thy God hath forbidden thee.  For the Lord thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.   Deuteronomy  4:23,24

 

And the Lord shall scatter you among the nations, and ye shall be left few in number among the heathen, whither the Lord shall lead you.  And there ye shall serve gods, the work of men's hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.  But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.  When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the Lord thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; (For the Lord thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.    Deuteronomy 4:27 - 31

 

And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.

 

“Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions.  Therefore was the wrath of the Lord kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.  And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them.   Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand.   Psalm 106:36,39 – 42

 

I lifted up mine hand unto them also in the wilderness, that I would scatter them among the heathen, and disperse them through the countries;  Because they had not executed my judgments, but had despised my statutes, and had polluted my sabbaths, and their eyes were after their fathers' idols.   Ezekiel 20:23,24

 

A FINAL WORD TO THE WISE:

 

The writers of the “New Testament” were not satisfied with the WORD of GOD and with GOD’s interaction with HIS Chosen People, as it is written in the Hebrew Scriptures.  They did not like the CREATOR GOD having a Chosen People, therefore, these men of the Roman Era designed a book that would favor Gentiles and one that would promote belief in a White-blue-eyed man-god of love who did not judge transgressors, and they gave him a Greek name - JC.  The “New Testament” writers not only disregarded GOD’s Laws, Statutes, and Judgments, but they completely omitted HIS Ordinances and the Hebrew Way of Life that the CREATOR GOD previously set in stone for HIS Peoples and all peoples who turn to HIM.  The last words in the Book of the Prophet Malachi tout keeping GOD’s LAW and the return of Elijah – not JC.

 

Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.  Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord:   Malachi 4:4,5

 

Moreover, the CREATOR GOD of Israel makes it crystal clear that the Children of Israel will not depart from HIM.

 

“Behold, I will gather them out of all countries, whither I have driven them in mine anger, and in my fury, and in great wrath; and I will bring them again unto this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely:  And they shall be my people, and I will be their God:  And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear me for ever, for the good of them, and of their children after them:  And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me.  Yea, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will plant them in this land assuredly with my whole heart and with my whole soul.  For thus saith the Lord; Like as I have brought all this great evil upon this people, so will I bring upon them all the good that I have promised them.   Jeremiah 32:37 – 42

 

Truly in vain is salvation hoped for from the hills, and from the multitude of mountains: truly in the Lord our God is the salvation of Israel.   Jeremiah 3:23

 

REPARATIONS (PAYMENT) TAKE ON SEVERAL MEANINGS:

 

REPARATIONS for the CREATOR GOD is the RETURN of HIS People to HIM with Love and in Righteousness.

 

REPARATIONS for the Land of Israel is the Nation of Israel returning to her inheritance as the CREATOR GOD had promised Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

 

REPARATIONS for the Nation of Israel is not only concerning their returning with gold and silver, but is rather for returning to GOD’s Laws, Statutes, and Judgments to do them in Righteousness for GOD’s Holy Name’s Sake.

 

“…Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.  And ye shall know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves, And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the Lord have spoken it, and performed it, saith the Lord.   Ezekiel 37:12 – 14

 

There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun, who rideth upon the heaven in thy help, and in his excellency on the sky.  The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them.  Israel then shall dwell in safety alone: the fountain of Jacob shall be upon a land of corn and wine; also his heavens shall drop down dew.  Happy art thou, O Israel: who is like unto thee, O people saved by the Lord, the shield of thy help, and who is the sword of thy excellency! and thine enemies shall be found liars unto thee; and thou shalt tread upon their high places.   Deuteronomy 33:26 - 29

 

Unless people can find a reason for the subjugation of Blacks and their lack of power and rule in this world, it makes sense to consider the WORD of GOD for answers.  And the reason is that nothing the White Man has instilled in Blacks is of any benefit whatsoever, especially this Christian religion that has all but destroyed those who embrace it!  Nevertheless, the work of their Missionaries in Africa and in the Third-World Christian countries mainly has not abated.  Sadly, the poor peoples in these places flaunt the Church and its cross in the midst of pervasive squalor and suffering while they worship a man and forget about the CREATOR GOD that made them.

 

These civilized and intelligent White folks and those responsible for the establishment of the “New Testament” had no respect for GOD’s WORD or for HIS WORD at the mouth of HIS Prophets.  And for over 2,000 years they have led and continue to lead people to believe that the “Old Testament” has been fulfilled with the coming of this fabricated JC.  Of a Truth, these people have changed GOD’s Ordinances and deceived the entire world.

 

The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.   Isaiah 24:5

 

Seek the CREATOR GOD and HIS Book of the Law for therein is our SALVATION and our DELIVERANCE.

 

Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.   Jeremiah 6:16

 

But Israel shall be saved in the Lord with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.  For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else.  I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the Lord speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.  Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god that cannot save.  Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the Lord? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.  Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.  I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.  Surely, shall one say, in the Lord have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed.  In the Lord shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.   Isaiah 45:17 - 25

 

Know therefore that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;   Deuteronomy 7:9

 

And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither the Lord thy God hath driven thee,  And shalt return unto the Lord thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul;  That then the Lord thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the Lord thy God hath scattered thee.  If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the Lord thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee:  And the Lord thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers.   Deuteronomy 30:1 - 5

 

No one can imagine how the JEALOUS CREATOR GOD feels about being forsaken for that which is not a god but rather is the wicked imagination of mere men. 

 

A voice was heard upon the high places, weeping and supplications of the children of Israel: for they have perverted their way, and they have forgotten the Lord their God.  Return, ye backsliding children, and I will heal your backslidings. Behold, we come unto thee; for thou art the Lord our God.  Truly in vain is salvation hoped for from the hills, and from the multitude of mountains: truly in the Lord our God is the salvation of Israel.   Jeremiah 3:21 – 23

 

Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Because thou hast forgotten me, and cast me behind thy back, therefore bear thou also thy lewdness and thy whoredoms.   Ezekiel 23:35

 

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.  As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame.  They eat up the sin of my people, and they set their heart on their iniquity.  And there shall be, like people, like priest: and I will punish them for their ways, and reward them their doings.   Hosea 4:6 - 9

 

Believe in the CREATOR and TRUST completely in HIM because HE is all we have that makes any sense.  Also believe in HIS Prophets.  Just in case it is not common knowledge, please know that the writers of the “New Testament” were anything but prophets!  And not only do these writers have people worshipping a false god, but they have them working like mules on HIS Hallowed Day of Complete REST that HE said should be kept “Holy” and observed throughout their generations for a “Perpetual Covenant”.  Sadly, though Christians accept the Ten Commandments, they ignore the First and Fourth Commandments:   Thou shalt have no other god before ME, and Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it Holy. 

 

And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.   II Chronicles 20:20

 

All GOD’s WORD at the mouth of HIS Prophets has not been fulfilled.  HIS Prophets speak of the “Latter Days” and “Troublous Times”, and we are witnessing these days now.  Moreover, during these times of endless troubles, we need the GOD that will hear our cries for SALVATION, or we are lost! 

 

THINK!  JC has no track record for saving or delivering anyone and much less the “Lost Sheep of the House of Israel”, and those who believe otherwise delude themselves.  If the CREATOR GOD says that HE is the ONLY SAVIOR, then those who invent another are liars.

 

Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the Lord? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.   Isaiah 45:21

 

GIVEN THE CAPTIVITY BLACKS ENDURE TODAY,

WE NEED THE GOD THAT CAN SAVE

AND THAT RENDERS JUSTICE TO THE OPPRESSED

AND JUDGMENT TO THE OPPRESSOR!

 

Choose the SAVIOR that we know SAVES and that promises to SAVE, for HE is the ONE we so desperately need to spare us from the Hell on this Earth.  This world has become a ticking time bomb, and we need a True GOD and SAVIOR. 

 

And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.  The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God. For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness.   Isaiah 10:20 – 22

 

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.  And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.   Isaiah 11:11,12

 

We must all seek to know the ONE True and Living CREATOR GOD and seek to know HIS Ways and obey HIS WORD if we expect to be spared from HIS Wrath in the Day of the LORD.  I guess I have been remiss in mentioning that it is the CREATOR GOD that is causing all this turmoil and Hell on HIS Earth, and it is for good reason. 

 

Howl ye; for the day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.  Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt:  And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.  Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.   Isaiah 13:6 - 9

 

The CREATOR GOD has destroyed the wicked before in mass, and HE is about to do so again.  More than that, HE is taking back HIS Universe, HE is re-establishing HIS Covenant People, the SEED of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and HE is returning to HIS Holy City Jerusalem to live among HIS Covenant People and all peoples who choose HIM for their GOD and SAVIOR.

 

Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the Lord, to serve him, and to love the name of the Lord, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant;  Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.  The Lord God, which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.   Isaiah 56:6 - 8

 

There will not be a so-called “Rapture” as many Christians believe.  The “Meek shall inherit the Earth”, i.e., people who will turn to the CREATOR GOD with a contrite spirit and humbly abide by the Righteous Ways HE established in the very BEGINNING will live to enjoy life on HIS Earth – not in HIS Heaven.

 

“For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be:

yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.  

But the meek shall inherit the earth;

and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.”

Psalm 37:10,11

 

Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth:

for I am God, and there is none else.

I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness,

and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.

Surely, shall one say, in the Lord have I righteousness and strength:

even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed.  

In the Lord shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.”

Isaiah 45:22 – 25

 

GOD’S EARLIER REPARATIONS FOR ISRAELITES:

 

The First Reparations came from out of Ancient Egypt (Exodus 12:35,36).

The Second Reparations came from the Medes (Ezra 7:13 -22).

 

This Final distribution of Reparations

WILL ALSO BE THE GOD OF ISRAEL’S FULFILLMENT OF HIS WORD

TO HIS COVENANT PEOPLE,

And it will come from the Nations that grew wealthy off the Slave Trade.

 

“Thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I will lift up mine hand to the Gentiles,

and set up my standard to the people:

and they shall bring thy sons in their arms, and thy daughters shall be carried

upon their shoulders.  And kings shall be thy nursing fathers,

and their queens thy nursing mothers: they shall bow down to thee

with their face toward the earth, and lick up the dust of thy feet;

and thou shalt know that I am the Lord:

for they shall not be ashamed that wait for me.”

Isaiah 49:22,23

 

“Surely the isles shall wait for me,

and the ships of Tarshish first,

to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them,

unto the name of the Lord thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel,

because he hath glorified thee.  

And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls,

and their kings shall minister unto thee:

for in my wrath I smote thee, but in my favour have I had mercy on thee.  

Therefore thy gates shall be open continually;

they shall not be shut day nor night;

that men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles,

and that their kings may be brought.  

For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish;

yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.”

Isaiah 60:9 – 12

 

HALLELUYAH!  HALLELUYAH!  HALLELUYAH!

 

LET THE CREATOR GOD OF ISRAEL BE EXALTED

NOW AND FOR EVERMORE!

THE SOAPBOX SPEAKS:

 

THE STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS

 

I guess you know that President Obama delivered his State of the Union Address on Tuesday night (1/28/14).  He did talk about the union for a mere few minutes here and a few minutes there, and he even mentioned the poor moving into the middle class.  Well, not in those words, but it was implied and understood.  That’s about all I could see where he said anything about Black People.  The Late Lyndon Johnson at least mouthed the words “War on Poverty”!  Where are all the Brothers and Sisters who said President Obama would wait until his second term to speak out in our behalf?  Well, he did, and now he has just two more years left before he will have a legacy that might just be void of any mention of Blacks at all.  

 

The rest of the time the president sounded as if he were making a campaign speech, and the reason is that about 90% of what he said was still about what he wanted to accomplish.    

 

It appears the Black Man’s Messiah in President Obama is no better than the Black Man’s JC.  And the sooner Blacks realize that the vote in the lands of our captivity is a waste of time, the sooner we will turn to our ONLY HELP and be obedient to HIS Commandments, all of them.

 

I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early.  

Hosea 5:15

 

“12 Years a Slave”

 

I have read many books on The Slave Trade and have seen several movies on same.  No matter how much information I learn about this trade in human beings, I can never get used to reading and seeing the horrific abuse our forefathers endured at the hands of heathens.  And all the history, the novels, and the movies on this topic still leave me truly depressed.  “12 Years a Slave” was just as depressing.  Many, many times I have wondered how the GOD of Israel could watch what the barbaric Slavers did to HIS Chosen People.  And then when I read in the Hebrew Scriptures about how our forefathers turned to false gods and rejected HIS LAW after HE gave them the Land of Canaan - the Land of Milk and Honey - gold, silver, apparel, and power and authority over other nations and about how they would not follow HIS Ways of Righteousness, then I understand well why HE scattered us from our Land into the Hands of heathens for forsaking HIM. 

 

But what I cannot understand is why those of us who know our identity and who know Our GOD of Israel still turn to another god, even the man-god of Slavers, that never even saved us or did anything to make our burden in captivity any less. 

 

O’ Israel, Our GOD of Israel is fast moving upon the heathen of this world to fulfill HIS Wrath upon them for their abominations, as well, and if we are joined unto them, then that will be our demise also.  These are the times of “Jacob’s Troubles”, and Our Merciful GOD of Israel has said that we will be saved out of it.  However, that will only happen when we return to Our GOD of Israel, not just with words, but in Righteousness and with our whole heart and soul. 

 

Our GOD of Israel has not been served and worshipped as HE has desired for millennia.  And we should be eager to rise above this present world order, and we should feel very special because the Holy ONE of Israel formed us for HIS PRAISE and gave only the Tribe of Levi the privilege to minister before HIM in HIS Holy Temple.

 

This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.

Isaiah 43:21

 

“For in mine holy mountain, in the mountain of the height of Israel,

saith the Lord God, there shall all the house of Israel,

all of them in the land, serve me: there will I accept them,

and there will I require your offerings, and the firstfruits of your oblations,

with all your holy things.

I will accept you with your sweet savour, when I bring you out from the people,

and gather you out of the countries wherein ye have been scattered;

and I will be sanctified in you before the heathen.

And ye shall know that I am the Lord, when I shall bring you into the land of Israel,

into the country for the which I lifted up mine hand to give it to your fathers.

And there shall ye remember your ways, and all your doings,

wherein ye have been defiled; and ye shall lothe yourselves

in your own sight for all your evils that ye have committed.

And ye shall know that I am the Lord when I have wrought with you

for my name's sake, not according to your wicked ways,

nor according to your corrupt doings,

O ye house of Israel, saith the Lord God.

Ezekiel 20:40 - 44

 

Some would say we are lucky; I would say that we are truly Blessed!

Cows Eat What?!

6 Surprising Things Fed to US Cows

 

Monday, January 20, 2014 0:11

 

For the most part, cattle in America are seen not as animals or living, breathing entities, but as commodities—products to be bought and sold for consumption. So, in many cases, the mistreatment of these commodities doesn’t get a second thought. Large-scale producers are interested in raising the most profitable product for the lowest cost, and this means feeding them some pretty strange stuff.

 

Here are 6 things farmers are feeding the cows of today – and you will be shocked.

 

1. Antibiotics - This one is not a surprise, as the use of antibiotics in cattle feed is well-known and a frequent point of controversy. Just how much? A few years ago, the FDA tried to quantify how much drugs we feed cattle and came up with 29 million pounds of antibiotics in 2009. A report from the Union of Concerned Scientists put the figure at 24.6 million back in 2001, but they were only looking at non-therapeutic antibiotics. In total, they believe the true figure is closer to 50 million pounds of antibiotics each year.

 

2. Roly, Poly Fish Heads - Fish and seafood byproducts like crab, shrimp, and fish guts are considered a “good” source of cheap protein and are ground up into a meal that can be mixed with other feeds. This isn’t a new idea, but it isn’t widespread either, used most often by farmers and ranchers on the coasts, according to Mother Jones.

 

3. Chicken Feces - Nothing like recycling waste from other parts of the farm! In a recent OnEarth story, Brad Jacobson revealed cattle farmers are increasingly feeding their livestock chicken poop. This questionable meal might contain features, bacteria, antibiotics, and heavy metals, and may even promote the spread of disease like mad cow.

 

4. Ground Rock - Limestone, a rock, makes for great calcium and seems to promote growth, according to some research. One study suggested cows that eat limestone have more “desirable carcasses”, whatever that means. We should probably stick to grass.

 

5. Sawdust - A feed ingredient that may be catching on due to its inexpensive nature, sawdust is technically plant material and after being soaked in nitric acid, it becomes digestible. So cows now eat it.

 

6. Candy - In an effort to slash costs and increase profits, livestock corporations have now begun feeding their cattle super cheap processed foods like cookies, gummy worms, chocolate, fruit loops and a whole list of candies. Wrappers and all, some farmers are finding cheap candy can provide a great source of sugar for cattle, which provides energy and makes them fatter. The practice of feeding candy to cattle began when corn prices skyrocketed. And rather than mess with unwrapping each piece for Bessie, wrappers are left on to save time. “I think it would pass through just like excess fiber would,” said one nutrition expert from Tennessee.

 

The diet of the average American isn’t that great, but the diet of the average American cow is far worse. Their health is an afterthought in this age of production and consumption.

Report: FDA allowed antibiotics in animal feed despite human health risks

 

by Marisa Taylor @marisahtaylor January 28, 2014 5:47PM ET

Analysis found 18 out of 30 antibiotics fed to livestock

are 'high risk' to human health, advocacy group says

Topics:

Turkeys raised without the use of antibiotics are seen at a farm in Lebanon, Pa. on April 11, 2012.Matt Rourke/AP

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration allowed dozens of antibiotics used in animal feed to stay on the market despite findings by its own researchers that the drugs will likely expose people to antibiotic-resistant infections, according to a report released Monday by an environmental advocacy group.

The FDA reviewed 30 different types of antibiotics that are put into livestock feed and found that 18 of them pose a “high risk” of exposing humans to antibiotic-resistant bacteria through the food supply, the Natural Resources Defense Council said in a report about the FDA’s findings. 

The manufacturers of the other 12 drugs didn’t submit enough information to the FDA in order to determine whether they could be safely used in animals without harming humans, but the FDA did not withdraw its approval of any of the antibiotics following its review, according to the NRDC.

“To our knowledge, FDA has taken no action since the reviews to revoke approvals for any of these antibiotic feed additives,” the NRDC’s report said.

 “I was shocked,” Carmen Cordova, a microbiologist for the NRDC and lead author of the report, told Al Jazeera.

“These are their very own findings,” she said. “This is still a question we have as to why there’s been no action, essentially, for 40 years. What we think is that they simply bow to industry.”

The NRDC accessed the FDA’s review of the drugs, which the agency conducted from 2001 to 2010, through a Freedom of Information Act request and the settlement of a subsequent lawsuit NRDC filed against the FDA.

The FDA’s documents, which were partially reviewed by Al Jazeera, also found that 26 out of the 30 antibiotics didn’t meet the safety standards laid out by the FDA in 1973 requiring drug manufacturers to submit evidence that their drugs didn’t create antibiotic resistance that could endanger human health.

The FDA’s review did not clearly indicate how many of the drugs continue to be sold today, but the NRDC said it found evidence that at least nine of the antibiotics continue to be marketed as additives to animal feed.

Some of the drugs in the FDA's review have been used since the 1950s, the NRDC said, and while the FDA sent letters to some of the drug companies asking for more safety information, it didn’t take further action and none of the companies reportedly submitted extra safety studies.

A 'complex issue'

The World Health Organization, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and other public health organizations have warned in recent years that widespread use of antibiotics could create a dangerous rise in drug-resistant strains of tuberculosis, gonorrhea, staph infections and other so-called “super bugs.”

At least 2 million people in the U.S. develop serious bacterial infections that are resistant to at least one type of antibiotic annually, and more than 23,000 people die each year from antibiotic-resistant infections, according to the CDC.

The FDA said in an email statement to Al Jazeera that “antimicrobial resistance is a complex issue with many causes, and uses of antimicrobial drugs in both humans and animals contribute to the development of antimicrobial resistance.”

The agency recently began to implement its new strategy “to phase out the use of all medically important antimicrobials, including penicillins and tetracyclines, for production purposes such as growth enhancement,” the FDA wrote, referring to its December 2013 policy asking drug companies to voluntarily stop labeling the drugs as acceptable to use in animals for purposes such as disease prevention or animal growth.

The FDA told Al Jazeera that two drug companies — Zoetis and Elanco — had already signed on to its voluntary program, and that it was “confident that this strategy will be fully implemented over the next three years. Once implementation of the strategy is complete, it will be illegal to use these drugs for non-therapeutic uses.”

It added, “We note that our strategy also does not limit our authority to take future regulatory action.”

In 2012, a federal district court ruled (PDF) that the FDA must start the process of withdrawing approval for tetracyclines and penicillins in animals for what’s known as “non-therapeutic use,” meaning for any purpose beyond treating an existing illness. The FDA is appealing the decision.

Those non-therapeutic purposes include the prevention of illness, which is necessary for some livestock producers in the U.S. to prevent animals from getting sick in sometimes crowded or unsanitary conditions. Another use is to make the animals grow faster.

The European Union in 2006 banned the practice of giving antibiotics to livestock for the purposes of promoting growth, and while Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) introduced similar legislation in the U.S. last year, Congress has yet not passed it.

The FDA in 1977 proposed withdrawing its approval of antibiotics after finding that feeding low doses of drugs to animals that are also important for treating human illnesses can promote drug-resistant infections, but it never took any regulatory action.

The agency did not answer Al Jazeera’s question about why it did not withdraw the approval of antibiotics as feed additives if they did not meet the agency’s safety guidelines.

"I think the FDA has an obligation to go ahead and withdraw the drugs and quit delaying, and that’s the sad part, is that they constantly fail to do so,” Steve Roach, the food safety program director at the advocacy group Food Animal Concerns Trust, told Al Jazeera.

“Why is the FDA so afraid of taking legal action? Why don’t they just move forward with the withdrawals and ask the companies not to voluntarily challenge them in court?” he said. “Basically, what they’re saying is, ‘Our job is too hard, so we’re not doing this.’”

TREATMENT FOR FOOD POISONING:

 

Herbal Treatment for Salmonella Poisoning

 

Last Updated: Aug 15, 2010 |

By

Photo Caption Salmonella poisoning may respond to medicinal herbal treatments. Photo Credit raw chicken in the wooden tray isolated on white image by Elnur from <ahref='http://www.fotolia.com'>Fotolia.com</a>

 

Salmonella poisoning usually occurs after eating tainted fish, meat, poultry or eggs and results in food poisoning. Initial symptoms of food poisoning may include diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal cramping. If left untreated, salmonella poisoning can appear in the joints and uro-genital tract in a condition called Reiters Syndrome. In some cases, symptoms of Reiters Syndrome become permanent. Certain herbal and alternative remedies may be effective in reducing symptoms and speeding recovery. Some herbs can cause side effects, so consult a medical doctor before using herbs for these symptoms.

Step 1

Drink plenty of fluids to replace those lost through vomiting and diarrhea. Include garlic tea as part of the fluid replacement. The Hospitality Institute of Technology and Management reports that the active ingredient in garlic is effective for halting the growth of gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria in salmonella. Make a tea by adding two cloves of crushed garlic to one cup boiling water and steep for 15 minutes. Drink throughout the day. More can be made as needed.

Step 2

Take homeopathic Arsenicum album to relieve food poisoning symptoms. Arsenicum is helpful for treating diarrhea accompanied by nausea and vomiting, all producing burning pains throughout the digestive tract, according to Frans Vermeulen in his book, the "Synoptic Materia Medica." The remedy may relieve cramping, restlessness and anxiety, all symptoms that may occur during an attack of salmonella poisoning. The patient may be fearful, chilly and thirsty during an attack. Arsenicum is available in health food stores and from online homeopathic pharmacies. If symptoms continue after several doses, another remedy may be necessary. Consult with a homeopath for assistance in choosing remedies and for dosing guidelines.

Step 3

Take some activated charcoal to help absorb the poisons in the gut. The charcoal comes from burnt remains of various plant materials, which are treated to increase the surface area, making it extremely porous. Take as soon as symptoms appear to prevent or stop diarrhea and dehydration, recommends the Earth Clinic.

Step 4

Use oil of oregano for its antimicrobial properties, recommends O. Peter Snyder of the Hospitality Institute. The active ingredients found in essential oil of oregano include phenol, which is known for being able to destroy the bacteria-causing salmonella poisoning. The powdered spice of oregano may be helpful, but oregano oil is more potent. It is available in health food stores. Because it may cause side effects, consult with an herbalist who can supervise treatment.

 Updated: Feb 11, 2013

Medical Care

Because most cases of acute gastroenteritis are self-limited, specific treatment is not necessary. Some studies have quantified that only 10% of cases require antibiotic therapy. The main objective is adequate rehydration and electrolyte supplementation. This can be achieved with either an oral rehydration solution (ORS) or intravenous solutions (eg, isotonic sodium chloride solution, lactated Ringer solution). Strict personal hygiene should be practiced during the illness.

Intravenous solutions are indicated in patients who are severely dehydrated or who have intractable vomiting.

Absorbents (eg, Kaopectate, aluminum hydroxide) help patients have more control over the timing of defecation. However, they do not alter the course of the disease or reduce fluid loss.

If symptoms persist beyond 3-4 days, the specific etiology should be determined by performing stool cultures. If symptoms persist and the pathogen is isolated, specific treatment should be initiated.

Empiric treatment should be initiated in patients with suspected traveler's diarrhea or dysenteric or systemic symptoms. Treatment with an agent that covers Shigella and Campylobacter organisms is reasonable in patients with diarrhea (>4 stools/d) for more than 3 days and with fever, abdominal pain, vomiting, headache, or myalgias. A 5-day course of a fluoroquinolone (eg, ciprofloxacin 500 mg PO bid, norfloxacin 400 mg PO bid) is the first-line therapy. TMP/SMX (Bactrim DS 1 tab qd) is an alternative therapy, but resistant organisms are common in the tropics. Infection with either V cholerae or V parahaemolyticus can be treated either with a fluoroquinolone or with doxycycline (100 mg PO bid).

In the absence of dysentery, do not administer antibiotics until a microbiologic diagnosis is confirmed and E coli O157:H7 is ruled out.

READING FOR THE SOUL:

 

Give thanks unto the Lord, call upon his name,

make known his deeds among the people

So they brought the ark of God, and set it in the midst of the tent that David had pitched for it: and they offered burnt sacrifices and peace offerings before God.

 And when David had made an end of offering the burnt offerings and the peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the Lord.

 And he dealt to every one of Israel, both man and woman, to every one a loaf of bread, and a good piece of flesh, and a flagon of wine.

 And he appointed certain of the Levites to minister before the ark of the Lord, and to record, and to thank and praise the Lord God of Israel:

 Asaph the chief, and next to him Zechariah, Jeiel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehiel, and Mattithiah, and Eliab, and Benaiah, and Obededom: and Jeiel with psalteries and with harps; but Asaph made a sound with cymbals;

 Benaiah also and Jahaziel the priests with trumpets continually before the ark of the covenant of God.

 Then on that day David delivered first this psalm to thank the Lord into the hand of Asaph and his brethren.

 Give thanks unto the Lord, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people.

 Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him, talk ye of all his wondrous works.

 Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord.

 Seek the Lord and his strength, seek his face continually.

 Remember his marvellous works that he hath done, his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;

 O ye seed of Israel his servant, ye children of Jacob, his chosen ones.

 He is the Lord our God; his judgments are in all the earth.

 Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word which he commanded to a thousand generations;

 Even of the covenant which he made with Abraham, and of his oath unto Isaac;

 And hath confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant,

 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance;

 When ye were but few, even a few, and strangers in it.

 And when they went from nation to nation, and from one kingdom to another people;

 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes,

 Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

 Sing unto the Lord, all the earth; shew forth from day to day his salvation.

 Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvellous works among all nations.

 For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised: he also is to be feared above all gods.

 For all the gods of the people are idols: but the Lord made the heavens.

 Glory and honour are in his presence; strength and gladness are in his place.

 Give unto the Lord, ye kindreds of the people, give unto the Lord glory and strength.

 Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

 Fear before him, all the earth: the world also shall be stable, that it be not moved.

 Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice: and let men say among the nations, The Lord reigneth.

 Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof: let the fields rejoice, and all that is therein.

 Then shall the trees of the wood sing out at the presence of the Lord, because he cometh to judge the earth.

 O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.

 And say ye, Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather us together, and deliver us from the heathen, that we may give thanks to thy holy name, and glory in thy praise.

 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel for ever and ever. And all the people said, Amen, and praised the Lord.   I Chronicles Sixteenth Chapter, First through thirty-sixth verses

 

I shall not die, but live,

and declare the works of the Lord

O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever.

 Let Israel now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

 Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

 Let them now that fear the Lord say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

 I called upon the Lord in distress: the Lord answered me, and set me in a large place.

 The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?

 The Lord taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me.

 It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.

 It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes.

 All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the Lord will I destroy them.

 They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.

 They compassed me about like bees: they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.

 Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the Lord helped me.

 The Lord is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.

 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly.

 The right hand of the Lord is exalted: the right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly.

 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.

 The Lord hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me over unto death.

 Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise the Lord:

 This gate of the Lord, into which the righteous shall enter.

 I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation.

 The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.

 This is the Lord's doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.

 This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

 Save now, I beseech thee, O Lord: O Lord, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.

 Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the Lord: we have blessed you out of the house of the Lord.

 God is the Lord, which hath shewed us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.

 Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I will exalt thee.

 O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.   Psalm One hundred eighteenth Chapter

 

Thou art my King, O God:

command deliverances for Jacob

We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us, what work thou didst in their days, in the times of old.

 How thou didst drive out the heathen with thy hand, and plantedst them; how thou didst afflict the people, and cast them out.

 For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them.

 Thou art my King, O God: command deliverances for Jacob.

 Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us.

 For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me.

 But thou hast saved us from our enemies, and hast put them to shame that hated us.

 In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for ever. Selah.

 But thou hast cast off, and put us to shame; and goest not forth with our armies.

 Thou makest us to turn back from the enemy: and they which hate us spoil for themselves.

 Thou hast given us like sheep appointed for meat; and hast scattered us among the heathen.

 Thou sellest thy people for nought, and dost not increase thy wealth by their price.

 Thou makest us a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and a derision to them that are round about us.

 Thou makest us a byword among the heathen, a shaking of the head among the people.

 My confusion is continually before me, and the shame of my face hath covered me,

 For the voice of him that reproacheth and blasphemeth; by reason of the enemy and avenger.

 All this is come upon us; yet have we not forgotten thee, neither have we dealt falsely in thy covenant.

 Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps declined from thy way;

 Though thou hast sore broken us in the place of dragons, and covered us with the shadow of death.

 If we have forgotten the name of our God, or stretched out our hands to a strange god;

 Shall not God search this out? for he knoweth the secrets of the heart.

 Yea, for thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.

 Awake, why sleepest thou, O Lord? arise, cast us not off forever.

 Wherefore hidest thou thy face, and forgettest our affliction and our oppression?

 For our soul is bowed down to the dust: our belly cleaveth unto the earth.

 Arise for our help, and redeem us for thy mercies' sake.   Psalm Forty-fourth Chapter

Caribbean governments ready to pursue

their case for reparations over slavery

Posted by TheBlackList-Publisher on January 13, 2014 at 10:12am in Community News Caricom - The Caribbean

Back to Community News Caricom - The Caribbean Discussions

 

Scotland is hosting the Commonwealth Games and in the same year is seeking to join that body of sovereign post-Westminster nations with all the benefits and responsibilities that will bring.

One of the challenges Scotland will face from Caribbean governments (Caricom) is their determination to establish the moral, ethical and legal case for the payment of reparations by the former colonial European countries to the nations and people of the Caribbean community, for native genocide, the transatlantic slave trade and a racialised system of chattel slavery. The Caricom Reparations Committee has issued a statement recently delivered by its chairman, Professor Sir Hilary Beckles, in which the case for diplomatic reparation is argued. I quote:

 

"The commission affirmed the argument that Caribbean societies have been built upon transatlantic slave trading and chattel slavery, which have been declared by the United Nations as crimes against humanity. These societies are uniquely placed to advance the global cause of truth, justice, and reconciliation, within the context of reparatory justice for the victims and their descendants." He adds that six broad aspects of the Caribbean condition have been identified that are the direct result of these "crimes", including:

 

"1) Public health: The African-descended population in the Caribbean has the highest incidence in the world of chronic diseases in the form of hypertension and type 2 diabetes that are the direct result of their nutritional exposure, endemic inhumane physical and emotional brutalisation and other aspects of the stress experience of slavery and post-slavery apartheid.

 

"2) Education: At the end of the colonial period the British left the African-descended population, and survivors of the native genocide, in a state of general illiteracy. Some 70% were functionally illiterate at the onset of the indepen­dence era. Widespread illiteracy con­tinues to plague Caribbean societies.

 

"3) Cultural institutions: Euro­peans have invested in the development of institutions such as museums and research centres in order to prepare their citizens for an understanding of their imperial history that defined them as rulers and beneficiaries of slavery. There are no such facilities in the Caribbean where the crimes were committed and the victims left disenfranchised in respect of their institutional and cultural experiences and memory.

 

"4) Cultural deprivation: The primary cultural effect of slavery was to break and eradicate African com­mit­ment to their culture. Africans were deculturalised and today remain impoverished in respect or cultural legitimacy and supportive approp­riate institutional arrangements. .

 

"5) Psychological trauma: For more than 400 years Africans were classified in law as non-human, chattel, property and real estate. They were denied recognition as members of the human family by laws and practices derived from the parliaments and policies of Europe. This history has inflicted massive psychological damage upon African descendants and is evident daily in social life...CONTINUES..>

"5) Psychological trauma: For more than 400 years Africans were classified in law as non-human, chattel, property and real estate. They were denied recognition as members of the human family by laws and practices derived from the parliaments and policies of Europe. This history has inflicted massive psychological damage upon African descendants and is evident daily in social life.

"6) Scientific and technological backwardness: For 400 years the policy of Britain and Europe had been that the Caribbean should not participate in any manufacturing or industria process, and should be confined to the production of raw materials. This policy has rendered the Caribbean technologically and scientifically ill-equipped. This matter must be addressed in reparatory dialogue."

A team of lawyers from London has been engaged to help develop the argument "that Caricom should request reparatory dialogue with beneficiary slave-owning European states with a view to formulating a new development agenda for the Caribbean, taking these reparatory objectives into consideration".

Scotland will no doubt hear more on these important human rights issues as it prepares to move forward into self-government; history speaks to the present.

Junious Ricardo Stanton

                                          King’s Words Expose AmeriKKKa

“One of the most persistent ambiguities that we face is that everybody talks about peace as a goal. However it does not take the sharpest eyed sophistication to discern that while everybody talks about peace, peace has become practically nobody’s business among the power wielders. Many men cry Peace! But they refuse to do the things that make for peace.” Martin Luther King Jr.

            When his murder was ordered and carried out by elements within the US government, Martin Luther King Jr was engaged in a protracted struggle to secure human rights for the masses of Americans and a campaign to stop the US imperialist and genocidal war in Southeast Asia. Among the notable white clergy of that day, like Norman Vincent Peale, Bishop Fulton Sheen, Billy Graham and others on those critical issues, King stood alone. His peers remained silent giving tacit accent to the evil going on around them.

            King was asked to come to Memphis Tennessee to support striking sanitation works who were demanding a living wage. The workers were mostly Black and their union was stymied in their negotiations with the city administration. Simultaneously King was preparing for his national  Poor Peoples Campaign to organize and mobilize thousands of poor people to converge on Washington to bring attention to the plight of unemployed, under employed, under paid and poverty stricken people of all colors.  King recognized the insidious nexus between the war in Southeast Asia (Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia) waged against mostly brown and yellow people by an imperialist army made up of lower class White, Black and Brown people, an economy increasingly expending its resources on war and the glaring poverty at home.

King and his staff were making headway galvanizing people to support the Poor People’s Campaign and their call for an equitable redistribution of wealth. Speaking of poverty in  American King said, “All too many of those who live in affluent America ignore those who exist in poor America; in doing so the affluent Americans will eventually have to face themselves with the question that Eichmann chose to ignore: How responsible am I for the well-being of my fellow? To ignore evil is to become an accomplice to it.” From, The Words of Martin Luther King Jr. Selected and With an Introduction by Coretta Scott King Newmarket Press 1984 page 18

            For his calls for an end to the Vietnam War, new American values and for a more equitable distribution of wealth, King was killed. The same mentality and values that motivated the ruling elites to wage that war, the same megalomania, callousness and greed that existed then exists now, even more so. King knew intuitively America was in moral decline and said so publically. King’s articulation went against the popular narrative and justification of evil commonly known as “American exceptionalism” which says, America is special, America is beyond the pale of moral judgment and no one can stand in her way. At the root of American exceptionalism is European psychopathy that results in genocide, ecocide and perpetual war.

            King prophesied America’s deepening moral decline when he said, “Mammoth productive facilities with computer minds, cities that engulf the landscape and pierce the clouds, planes that almost outrace time – these are awesome, but they cannot be spiritually inspiring. Nothing in our glittering technology can raise man to new heights because material growth has been made an end in itself. And, in the absence of moral purpose, man himself becomes smaller and the works of man become bigger. Gargantuan industry and government, woven into an intricate computerized mechanism, leave the person outside. The sense of participation is lost, the feeling that ordinary individuals influence important decisions vanishes and man becomes separated and diminished.” Ibid page 19

            King articulated the very essence of Western man’s dilemma, his deepening sense of alienation from himself and all creation, the loss of his humanity, his oblivion of his divinity and steady degeneration into a mindless, soulless automaton. The US in particular and the West in general have become like the Cyborgs in their science fiction movies and television shows, more machine than human. Sadly we are witnessing more and more of this every day.

            What would King say about Barack Obama a “Nobel Peace Prize” winner, continuing the warmonger legacy of his predecessor George W. Bush? What would King say about Obama’s new wars and the bombing innocent people with drone technology? What would King say about the bourgeoning wealth and income gaps in this country? What would King say about the apathy and numbness of the masses, the moral deafness, blindness and muted voices of the so called leaders? What would he say about the bulging bank accounts of the clergy and their silence against the atrocities committed around the world by the American empire?  King stood pretty much alone opposing those conditions when he was alive; today we have no one with King’s charisma and moral vision and the moral purification of this nation worsens every day. Once King remarked to Harry Belafonte he feared he was trying to integrate Blacks into a burning building .That was in 1968; what would King say about America if he were alive today?

By all accounts the United States is morally bankrupt. This nation was always driven by the criminality of the ruling elites and the trading companies (corporations) that founded it like: genocide, slavery and greed. The ruling elites manipulated the masses into doing their bidding no matter the consequences.  So slaughtering people, animals and defiling the environment for profit and thrills were deemed “progress”, ideal values to be embraced and emulated. The result of this mentality is the US is a criminogenic banana republic, a nation ruled by psychopaths, criminals and degenerates.

 A recent report by the Center for Responsive Politics revealed the current US Congress and Senate are stocked with millionaires whose fortunes have increased yearly while the fortunes of most Americans are heading in the opposite direction! These legislators supposedly represent the people and make the laws to benefit the whole but their actions are making them richer and richer while their actions leave us poorer by the day. You can see the steady grow in their wealth in the graph from Opensecrets.org I’ve provided.

The Website OpenSecrets.org states, “Of 534 current members of Congress, at least 268 had an average net worth of $1 million or more in 2012, according to disclosures filed last year by all members of Congress and candidates. The median net worth for the 530 current lawmakers who were in Congress as of the May filing deadline was $1,008,767 -- an increase from the previous year when it was $966,000. In addition, at least one of the members elected since then, Rep. Katherine Clark (D-Mass.), is a millionaire, according to forms she filed as a candidate. (There is currently one vacancy in Congress.) Last year only 257 members, or about 48 percent of lawmakers, had a median net worth of at least $1 million. 

Members of Congress have long been far wealthier than the typical American, but the fact that now a majority of members -- albeit just a hair over 50 percent -- are millionaires represents a watershed moment at a time when lawmakers are debating issues like unemployment benefits, food stamps and the minimum wage, which affect people with far fewer resources, as well as considering an overhaul of the tax code…  Similarly, the median net worth for all senators increased to $2.7 million from $2.5 million, but in that body it was the Republicans who were better-off. Senate Democrats reported a median net worth of $1.7 million (a decline from 2011's $2.4million), compared to Senate Republicans, at $2.9 million (an increase from $2.5 million).” http://www.opensecrets.org/news/2014/01/millionaires-club-for-first...

Based upon these facts and figures, the massive disconnect between Congress and ordinary Americans makes complete sense. It speaks volumes about the values and real motives of those who “serve” in government. The system’s widespread corruption is so obvious it is no longer possible to keep it a secret. The question is, since it’s clear these politicians no longer serve us, who are they serving, and whose side are they really on? It appears most have made deals with corporate devils to get where they are and now they are lining their pockets at our expense. In America greed, corruption and avarice are promoted and rewarded while honesty, compassion and altruism are ostracized.

King’s words shed insight and light on what is happening today. He said, “The physical casualties of the war in Vietnam (we can substitute the words War on Terror) are not alone the catastrophes. The causalities of principles and values are equally disastrous and injurious. Indeed they are ultimately more harmful because they are self-perpetuating. If the casualties of principle are not healed, the physical casualties will continue to mount.”  Ibid page 86

The casualties of principle King spoke of and the parallel moral rot are spreading like wildfire. They have metastasized from top to bottom throughout the whole society. It is evident in our values and behavior whether in high rise corporate suites or high rise housing projects. The affect of this ethical decay is everywhere, it permeates the whole culture. Only the comatose and self-deluded cannot see and feel America is on the verge of moral and economic implosion.

Woe to America and the world if this pattern continues. As slaveholder, rapist pedophile and third US President Thomas Jefferson wrote, “I tremble for my country when I reflect that god is just and his justice cannot sleep forever.”

King's Words Expose AmeriKKKa - TheBlackList Pub

My Comment (T.Y., Editor) to those at TheBlackList Pub:

Every Black Person in the US should read Stanton's article and then ask, "Why the Hell do we need to stay in this country that holds us captive and in which we have no voice?"

There is but one solution to our dilemma.  We need to get rid of this White Man's god, and find the same CREATOR GOD that Delivered the Children of Israel out of Egyptian captivity.  Then we must demand Reparations for the heinous and cruel Slave Trade and establish better lives elsewhere for our progeny, i.e., if we want to see Blacks prosper in this world as a ruling power. 

It's only Blacks who are happy with whatever status quo the White Man lays upon us; his cruelty, his discrimination, his misguided education, his hatred of Blacks, and his religion that keeps us walking backwards, and his Ghettoes maintain our places in darkness.  And we have not awakened yet to the fact that things will not get any better for us while we are in his land and under his control.

Consider the following link, as it pertains to those of us sick and tired of being at the bottom of the totem pole and under the control of another people:

Building Smart in Ghana: The Story of Regimanuel Gray Limited, Ghana's leading homes developer

 It's daybreak in Accra, Ghana, and temperatures are already soaring to a searing 30 degrees Celsius. Jobsites around this southeastern Atlantic seaside city are quickly filling up with workers who for the next 8 hours will toil and broil in unrelenting heat and humidity as they play their rightful role in Ghana's bubbling construction sector.

By contrast things are somewhat more relaxed at a sprawling jobsite in Klagon, where Regimanuel Gray Limited (RGL) is building 1,680 apartment units in collaboration with the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) of Ghana. Here, the construction crews are equipped with concrete formwork smart building technology designed and supplied by Wall-Ties & Forms, Inc. (WTF) of Kansas State,USA.

This highly user-friendly rapid formwork construction technology produces concrete structures at least 3 times faster than with traditional construction methods. The structures are also roughly 5 times as strong as the brick and mortar equivalent. It's cast-in-place steel reinforced concrete construction. It's the future of Ghana, a rapidly urbanizing nation with a housing deficit estimated at 1.5 million homes.

"Our traditional methods of building are too slow," admits Mr. Emmanuel Botchwey, Regimanuel Gray Limited's Executive Chairman, revealing that the entire real estate sector of Ghana has been producing barely 10% of the new homes the country needs to build every year to start correcting its housing shortfall.

Regimanuel is Ghana's leading homes developer. From its incorporation in 1991 the company has built just over 3,000 homes in Ghana. That is roughly 130 homes every year for 22 years. A decent turnover but Mr. Botchwey has not been satisfied with the output.

In early 2006 at an African housing sector conference hosted by the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) in Cape Town, South Africa, the RGL co-founder keenly followed a presentation of Wall-Ties & Forms' aluminum formwork-based rapid construction technology. He was encouraged by what he saw.

"I thought it was a great formwork technology to introduce in Ghana but we were not ready to implement it at that time as we had just invested heavily in block-making plants here and in Sierra Leone," he says.

Although the block making business has been hugely successful with RGL projects consuming just over 20% of the products while selling the bulk to an eager market, at the back of Mr. Botchwey's mind was the WTF technology he saw in Cape Town in 2006.

For one, reinforced concrete structures compared to brick and mortar – masonry – walls are less prone to cracking; the WTF formwork system doesn't require the high level of specialized skills and amounts of mechanized and manual labor deployed on conventional jobsites.

Additionally the WTF formwork system has definite cost-saving factors not to mention the speed at which the structures seem to practically grow out of the ground.

"Time is money," avers Botchwey, adding, "With this technology, you build faster, sell faster and cut down on your overhead. It means you make more money quicker and can pay your workers better.

"If you are using borrowed money, it means you will repay your bank loan in 2 years instead of 5 years, so you save on bank interest payments and share the savings with the home buyer," says Ghana's top real estate entrepreneur.

It is against this backdrop that Mr. Botchwey and his team travelled to the Kansas City headquarters of Wall-Ties & Forms, Inc. in October 2011 to discuss the acquisition of WTF aluminum formwork for use in the Klagon apartments development project. The equipment was shipped to Accra mid-last year, and after the initial onsite training, construction commenced in July 2012. RGL has sold most of the apartment units just over a year since the project got underway.

Besides the 1,680 apartments, the firm is collaborating with SSNIT on yet another project to build 42 high-end duplex units in the Community 13 area of Accra. RGL has already acquired WTF aluminum formwork for this new project.

Mr. Botchwey discloses that these two housing development projects have generated more than 300 direct new jobs, while contributing significantly to efforts to reduce Ghana's huge housing deficit.

It gets even better. Regimanuel Gray Limited has recently acquired 1,300 acres in Accra on which they plan to build a satellite city with 17,000 single- and multi-family homes within a series of gated communities complete with schools, hospitals, shopping and recreational facilities, and other community support amenities.

This is indeed a herculean undertaking; hardly any single developer is building such a huge number of homes in Ghana or in any other African country for that matter. But it is possible to deliver the satellite city with the WTF mass housing technology considering that some South American developers have produced as many as 40,000 homes annually using the cast-in-place concrete building technology.

Mr. Botchwey estimates that his company will complete the 17,000 homes project inside 10 years and create thousands of new jobs in the process.

In the interim, RGL's ambition is to accelerate its annual production rate to reach 500 homes built and sold in Ghana.

Decorated as one of Ghana's top-100 companies, RGL also has solid plans to start building homes inLiberia and Tanzania in the near future. They have already acquired land for the purpose in both countries.

Structures built using WTF's precision engineered concrete forms are smooth and straight; they require minimal or no plastering at all. All the openings are precise, which saves the builder ample time in the process of fitting the doors and windows. Not to mention that the forms are good for a guaranteed minimum 1,000 concrete pours.

Such are the time and cost-saving factors that persuaded RGL to start building the WTF way.

The recipient of the 1998 Ghana Home Finance Company Gold Award for Best Estate Developer, the Ghana Millennium Excellence Award, and the 13th International Construction Award of Trade Leaders Club, Paris, it is little wonder that Regimanuel Gray Limited, Ghana's premier home builder, is using the world's best concrete forming system.

Mr. Botchwey says he is satisfied with the after-sale support he is receiving from Wall-Ties & Forms' professionals in the USA and Africa. And he is not worried about plausible competition emanating from other Ghana and West African homebuilders discovering the WTF cost-efficient way of building.

Africa, he says, lags behind in the provision of decent shelter. "We have lots of catching up to do; it's the more reason why we in Africa should use modern building methods such as the WTF technology."

USDA Moves to Approve "Agent Orange" GMO Seeds

 

Wednesday, 08 January 2014 09:09

 

By Mike Ludwig, Truthout | News

Jody Herr, who believes his tomato field has been poisoned by 2,4-D, the powerful herbicide that was an ingredient in Agent Orange, the Vietnam War defoliant, in a field that he farms in Lowell, Indiana, April 17, 2012. (Photo: Peter Wynn Thompson / The New York Times)

The US Department of Agriculture is leaning toward approving varieties of corn and soybean seeds that are genetically engineered to be resistant to several herbicides, including the controversial chemical known as 2,4-D.

Dow Chemical developed the genetically engineered seeds with the brand name Enlist to address the growing problem of "superweeds" that have become resistant to Monsanto's Roundup herbicide. Roundup is widely used on genetically engineered crops, which are also known as genetically modified organisms, or GMOs.

Dow claims that Enlist seeds will give farmers an important tool to fight weeds, but pesticide critics and independent researchers say that 2,4-D is linked to health problems. Fighting resistant weeds with tougher chemicals, critics say, is not a sustainable solution to the challenges of modern agriculture.

Just before the start of the weekend January 3, 2014, the USDA released a draft environmental impact statement on the genetically engineered corn and soy seeds, which have been under a strict review since 2011 because of pressure from organic farmers and activists who are concerned about widespread use of 2,4-D. The USDA found that the GMO seeds do not pose a "plant pest risk," and the agency is expected to approve the seeds for general use.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which regulates pesticides, is also reviewing the proposal to inject crops resistant to 2,4-D into the agricultural system. GMO crops such as the Enlist seeds are genetically engineered to resist pesticides marketed by the companies that develop them, allowing farmers to spay entire fields with patented herbicides that kill only weeds and non-GMO plants. In the coming months, the EPA will announce its decision in coordination the USDA.

Food safety activists and environmental activists call the GMO seeds "Agent Orange crops" because 2,4-D was a component of the notorious herbicide used by American forces during the Vietnam War that caused serious illnesses among veterans and the Vietnamese population. Industry proponents point out that Agent Orange's other ingredient, a chemical known as 2,4,5-T, was contaminated with dioxin and made the herbicide dangerous to human health. Meanwhile, 2,4-D has continued to be used in the United States and across the world.

Pesticide critics, however, point to studies that have linked 2,4-D to health problems such as non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a type of cancer.

“Any increase in the use of 2,4-D with Enlist corn and soybeans will hit rural communities especially hard, as numerous medical studies have linked 2,4-D and related herbicides to increased rates of cancer and Parkinson’s disease as well as low sperm counts in farmers and to birth anomalies in their children,” said Andrew Kimbrell, director of the Center for Food Safety.

Denmark, Sweden, Norway and parts of Canada have banned 2,4-D in light of such research, but the EPA considers the chemical to be relatively safe. In 2012, the EPA denied a petition from environmental groups to cancel the chemical's legal registration.

2,4-D is the third-most-popular herbicide in the United States, and farmers already are using it to fight Roundup-resistant weeds. The USDA estimates that use of 2,4-D will increase by 75 percent in the next six years if the Enlist crops are not approved. If the Enlist corn and soy are approved, the USDA estimates that the amount of 2,4-D used by farmers will increase further by two to six times.

Researchers at Penn State estimate that the widespread planting of soybeans resistant to 2,4-D would increase the amount of 2,4-D sprayed on American fields to 100 million pounds per year, about four times the current level. The researchers criticized the plan to address resistant weeds with heavy 2,4-D applications as a "quick fix" that would have negative environmental impacts and, over time, increase the superweed epidemic by encouraging weeds to be resistant to multiple herbicides.

A coalition of 144 farming, fishery, environmental and public health groups have asked the USDA not to approve the Enlist seeds, citing health studies and concerns among farmers that 2,4-D would drift onto their property and kill conventional or organic crops, causing serious economic damage in rural communities.

Dow, however, claims to have developed a 2,4-D formulation that is less prone to drift. In its environmental review, the USDA said that a "stewardship agreement" requiring the use of the new formulation has put some farmers' fears to rest. The USDA also claims that, if the Enlist technology is not made available to fight herbicide-resistant weeds, farmers may return to more aggressive tillage practices that can cause soil erosion and other forms of environmental damage.

The USDA has proposed several alternatives to approving the 2,4-D-resistant soy and corn, but approving all the seed varieties is currently the agency's "preferred" option. The public has six weeks to comment on the proposal.

Extreme Weather Causes Snow Rollers Throughout The Midwest

Snow rollers are being spotted in open fields throughout the Midwest. The unique snowballs and rolls are rare as they require a specific combination of conditions to form. Extreme cold and high winds throughout the region have provided the perfect environment for the rare formations.

The naturally occurring snow balls form where ice or ice-encrusted snow exists in a uniform layer over the ground. The surface layer serves as a platform where the balls are formed and can easily travel. The second layer, which rests on top of the ice, must be wet snow that is fluffy and loosely packed. This condition can be difficult to meet as wet snow is often quite dense.

In addition to the snow and ice, snow rollers require strong winds to form and propel the snowballs. As the wind scoops under the snow and pushes it along, the snow is shaped into unique formations. Some of the more common shapes are balls, donuts, and long formations that resemble jelly rolls.

As reported by Weather.com, snow rollers are often propelled by wind. However, some of the balls are formed by lighter winds and propelled down hillsides.

The unique formations often vary in size, depending on the amount of snow and how far they roll. The smallest are the size of a dime, but the largest can grow up to several feet wide. The average size is usually closer to 12 inches.

Although the formations appear similar to snowballs, they are not tightly packed. While they are interesting to look at or photograph, they usually cannot be picked up or held. Karen and Frank Ferguson found several rollers on their property over the weekend. They described the snowballs as quite “fragile” as they have “very little body to them… like meringue.”

The rolled snowballs come in a variety of shapes and sizes. However, the most interesting and beautiful rollers have several distinct and visible layers. As the inner layers are the most fragile, the balls often have a hollow center. Therefore, the rolls with all layers intact are even more difficult to find.

The lines trailing behind the rolling snow can be interesting, as well. The trails are often similar to those left by rocks sliding through the desert in Death Valley.

The extreme weather in the Midwest has caused a lot of headaches for residents. Although snow is often an annoyance, phenomena like snow rollers remind us that the winter season can also provide some beautiful landscapes.

Pastor tries to walk on water like Jesus:

Drowns in front of congregation

 

January 4, 2014

According to All Christian News on Jan. 2, a pastor tried to walk on water like Jesus did. However, he drowned in front of his congregation.

Pastor Franck Kabele, 35, on the West Coast of Africa assured his congregation that he was capable of walking on water like Jesus did. He attempted to reenact what Jesus did as his congregation looked on. He set out to demonstrate that he, too, could walk on water on Gabon's beach in Libreville. Unfortunately, it cost him his life.

Bible scholars know that in Matthew 14:22-33, Jesus walked on water and when Peter, His disciple, tried to walk on water to go to Jesus, he began to drown and Jesus saved him.

Kabele said that he received a revelation that told him with enough faith he could do what Jesus was able to do.

A report was given by an eyewitness that the pastor took his congregation out to the beach. He told them that he would cross the Kombo estuary by foot, which is normally a 20-minute boat ride. By the second step into the water, Kabele was completely submerged. Sadly, he drowned immediately and never came up.

While this story is indeed sad, it is not the first incident of this nature in Africa. At Ibadon zoo in south-west Nigeria, a self-proclaimed prophet claimed he was able to do what the Daniel did by walking into a den full of lions. The zoo keepers had warned the man numerous times, but he saw them as the enemies of his progress. With a crowd watching, the man put on a red robe and attempted to enter the cage full of lions. Within seconds of opening the door, the lions ripped the man apart.

Hopefully, others will learn lessons from these two incidents and not try to reenact dangerous feats.

While the Bible gives stories about how God saved and protected people, Proverbs is a book in the Bible that outlines wisdom in every area of one's life.

Project 21 Black Conservatives criticize Obama's State of the Union Address for being steeped in class warfare and contempt for the Constitution

Project 21 Has Harsh Response

to President Obama's 2014 State of the Union Address

Calling it steeped in class warfare and contempt for the Constitution, commentators with the Project 21black leadership network are highly critical of President Barack Obama's 2014 State of the Union address.

"It's interesting for President Obama to begin his State of the Union address with a list of supposed accomplishments, and then ask for a 'year of action.' He put forth a lot of ideas, yet offered no fixes to the problems that define his administration - an ever-expanding federal deficit, the stifling of jobs by the Affordable Care Act and the continued attempts to rob our military men and women of the benefits their service has earned," said Project 21's Coby Dillard , a former Tea Party organizer, Navy veteran and former guard at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. "In threatening to govern through executive actions rather than putting his ideas into legislation to be approved by Congress, the President shows a disdain for the basic structure of governance that our Founders envisioned. It's said that the true measure of a leader is his ability to build support for an agenda through consensus, and not to compel action unilaterally through his own initiative."

Speaking before a joint session of Congress, the U.S. Supreme Court, military leaders, his cabinet, diplomats and other guests, President Obama made it clear that he is uninterested and unwilling to take the steps necessary to forge bipartisan plans through deliberation and compromise. Rather, Obama seems ready to use executive power to implement a controversial and legislatively unpopular agenda.


Prior to the address, White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters: "The President sees this as a year of action to work with Congress where he can and to bypass Congress where necessary." Obama, in the speech, said he would not "stand still" if Congress does not bend to his will, claiming "wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation... that's what I'm gonna do."

"Our nation would be best served if President Obama used his pen to sign bills from the Congress into laws. His phone calls should be to the members of Congress to negotiate commonsense, pragmatic legislation that is in the best interest of the American people," said Project 21's Charles Butler, a radio talk show host. "Instead, he has chosen a path of confrontation and intimidation with the people's representatives. Despite being a former constitutional law professor, one must seriously ponder if Obama understands his lawful responsibilities as the head of the executive branch of the federal government."

Obama made tonight's taunts before lawmakers, justices and others at a time when his signature health care takeover is seen as underperforming and over budget, America's stature in the world is hobbled though eavesdropping revelations and foreign policy missteps and controversial staffing moves through dubious "recess appointments" that bypassed Senate approval are now being checked by the U.S. Supreme Court to see if they pass constitutional muster. Obama also called for new regulations during his address that will likely have devastating effects on energy production and American manufacturing as he caters to the radical environmentalists' global warming agenda.

"Whatever happened to 'hope and change?" asked Project 21'sJoe Hicks , a former executive director of the Greater Los Angeles chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and the Los Angeles City Human Rights Commission. "After all of the ginned-up rhetorical excesses of the 2008 presidential inauguration, President Obama has failed to measure up to any reasonable expectations of large-scale leadership, a sure sign that small-ball politics now define his lame-duck status. He conveyed a weak, incompetent, ineffectual, detached president -- unlike anything the nation has seen since the days of Jimmy Carter. Obama appears satisfied arguing for things he can't determine the outcome of -- such as arguing for raising the national minimum wage, arguing for immigration reform and empty threats to threaten that he'll use unilateral presidential authority to get what he wants. There is, after all, something called the Constitution. The question is, who cares what this president has to say? Given his dismal approval ratings, shockingly unpresidential behavior and abysmal performance, most Americans have simply turned off, tuned out and couldn't care less about anything this president has to say."

"The President's speech was a mix of one-sided positive reviews of policies that were mostly harmful for the majority of Americans. It was government-focused solutions to problems the private sector can resolve on its own, and gimmicky programs that will only add to the morass of the federal government," said Project 2's Hughey Newsome , a private financial specialist and regular columnist for the Daily Caller website. "The one thing that came through strongest is the thinly-veiled threat to increase the minimum wage through fiat while failing to address why wages are falling in the first place. Overregulation -- including the Affordable Care Act -- the inability to prepare our students for the jobs of tomorrow and catering to special interests reduce the number of jobs available and takes away from the ability of the worker to have the skills to demand higher wages on his/her own."

Oddly, the President, five years into his presidency and long past being able to blame his predecessor, complained that "average wages have barely budged" and "upward mobility has stalled" and "too many Americans are working more than ever just to get by." He made no connection to the taxes and regulations that play a central role in implementing his agenda.

"Instead of pressing the accelerator on plans to expand government, the President could do taxpayers and the American economy a favor by reversing course," said Project 21 Co-Chairman Horace Cooper, a former professor of constitutional law and former leadership staff member in the U.S. House of Representatives. "Starting with tax relief, a one-year freeze on new regulation and sitting down with Republicans and Democrats in Congress to develop a real solution to the entitlement crisis the President could set a new course -- one that focuses on the real problems that America faces with solutions that have been proven to work."

Going into tonight's speech, President Obama's approval rating, as measured by Gallup, Inc., was 41 percent -- with 52 percent of those polled disapproving of his job performance. A Washington Post/ABC-commissioned poll found that 55 percent of those asked disapproved of Obama's handling of the economy.

Project 21's Christopher Arps, also the founder of the black conservative social networking site Move-On-Up.org, said: "Tonight's fifth State of the Union address by President Obama officially marks the beginning of lame duck status for his presidency. His long and liberal laundry list of unattainable initiatives, coupled with his 41 percent approval rating, will fortunately transform the commander-in-chief into the 'spectator-in-chief' for his final two years in office."

Commenting on President Obama's cheerleading his health care takeover, Project 21's Dr. Elaina George , a board-certified and award-winning otolaryngologist, said: "The power to choose your doctor, and for you in partnership with your doctor to decide your course of treatment is the foundation of excellent medical care. With The Affordable Care Act, the government has inserted itself to become the final arbiter of your care and it will ultimately decide who the health winners and losers are. Proponents of ObamaCare want people to believe that the system is so broken that it can only be fixed through fundamental change. The disastrous roll-out has certainly fed the argument of single payer and there is an argument to be made that the government bailout written into the bill has actually already ushered in single payer -- since whomever controls the money controls the access and makes the rules."

"President Obama spoke on immigration reform, pre-K education spending, more 'infrastructure' spending and artificially driving up the minimum wage. The list of proposed items and all of the proposed executive actions are distractions from the failure of ObamaCare," said Project 21's Stacy Washington, a local school board officer and radio talk show host. "Instead, the President should have completely come clean on Benghazi, the IRS targeting scandal and assure Americans he plans to engage Republicans in the House on spending cuts to stimulate the economy and create jobs. He should apologize for millions of Americans losing their health care and offer to compromise on ObamaCare."

According to last month's jobless figures from the Obama Administration's own Bureau of Labor Statistics, the labor force participation rate is at a modern low of 62.8 percent (a low not seen since the Carter Administration). A record number of people are on food stamps and disability payments drawn from the Social Security Administration are at all-time highs.

"Five years into the President's so-called recovery -- a recovery that feels worse than the actual recession -- it's safe to say that his administration has shown a remarkable and indefensible indifference to the U.S. economy at the expense of millions of Americans. And he doesn't seem bothered by it," said Project 21's Derryck Green , who writes a monthly analysis about the economy for Project 21 monthly when federal jobless estimates are announced. "With the unemployment rate dropping because over 92 million Americans are out of the workforce; a labor-force participation rate matching a 35-year low; 47 million Americans on food stamps and emergency unemployment benefits close to being extended, issues such as minimum wage and wealth redistribution -- though characteristic of an unsound and unserious economic strategy -- aren't the solutions that are going to jumpstart a lagging economy. The President apparently prefers empty campaign-style rhetoric to serious, thoughtful and productive economic policies."

"It was all too clear tonight that President Obama will continue on a narcissistic path. Obama throws out the populist rhetoric, but the truth of the matter is that the massive growth in government and government dependency, income inequality and millions losing their health care coverage is a direct results of his failed policies," said Project 21's Kevin Martin, a small businessman and Navy veteran. "Tonight's State of the Union speech was nothing more than a rehash of tired rhetoric from the last five years. And there will be very little positive results even with the threat of unilateral executive action. Tragically, Obama refuses to alter the course that has seen his approval levels sink to the lowest of his presidency."

Since 2010, black conservatives affiliated with Project 21 have provided an annual post-speech analysis of the President's State of the Union address. In 2013, members of Project 21 participated in just under 1,000 interviews that included CNN, Fox News Channel, Reuters, the Westwood One Radio Network, Bloomberg News, WHO-Des Moines, KDKA-Pittsburgh and KOA-Denver as well as more than 700 op-ed commentary and media citations in publications such as the Christian Science Monitor, U.S. News and World Report, BusinessWeek, the Daily Caller, the Baltimore Sun, American Spectator and Huffington Post.

Project 21, a leading voice of black conservatives for over two decades, is sponsored by the National Center for Public Policy Research, a conservative, free-market, non-profit think-tank established in 1982. Contributions to the National Center are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated .

CLOSING SCRIPTURE THAT EXALTS THE CREATOR GOD OF ISRAEL:

“Mine eyes fail for thy salvation, and for the word of thy righteousness.

 Deal with thy servant according unto thy mercy, and teach me thy statutes.

 I am thy servant; give me understanding, that I may know thy testimonies.

 It is time for thee, Lord, to work: for they have made void thy law.

 Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold.

 Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right;

and I hate every false way.

 Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep them.

 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.

 I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for thy commandments.

 Look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me,

as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name.

 Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.

Psalm 119:123 - 133
