The Bible and your Personality

Posted by commendatori on February 17, 2011

The Bible And You: So many Christians are experiencing stress, despair, depression, discouragement and defeat today. But it does not have to be so. That is not what His love planned for them. What then is the answer to living a victorious life? It can’t be a problem with the Word of God, because God is perfect. That is correct. The problem is the human personality. This is why Jesus said: “Verily I say unto you. That you who have followed me in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of His Glory, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the tribes of Israel (Matthew 19:28).”

The study of the human personality has been vast and has produced many and varied opinions, theories and hypotheses. Even larger than the mountain of research and statements on the human personality, is the question of what causes varying personalities? Is it nature, or is it nurture? The experts have yet to answer these questions to anyone’s satisfaction. Many terms have been coined to define personality: e.g. “personality is the ability to elicit positive reactions from other people in one’s typical dealings with them.” Already there is a problem: What is meant by positive reactions, as what might be perceived as positive to one person, might not be for another, and; even more importantly, what is meant by typical? What is normalcy? What is normal for one culture is unacceptable in another. Tarzan is alright in the jungle, but in New York? There have been many definitions to personality – but little agreement.

It is accepted that psychodynamic and behavioural theories would disagree as to what information is relevant, but they would and do agree on one point: People do not act out of free will. Even those choices that seem to us most personal and major – where we will go to college, whom we will marry, what movie we will go to, what decision to make in a given situation, “are not free choices, but predictable responses to prior circumstances.” There is a saying: People spend half their lives making the wrong decisions, and the other half regretting it. Oh what a pity. Especially when it does not have to be so. There is new life. All things can become new. How? It would take years for you to examine all the discoveries of the human personality, all the books that have been written on the topic, and then all that the Bible says of the human personality, and all the problems and the solutions. The Bible And You has done all the work for you and covers all the findings on the human personality, all that has been said about it and what to do. Take for instance, Freud’s teachings on the id, the ego and the superego. The id is the naughty one, he sits on your shoulder and tell you to think, say and do wrong things, the superego is the “voice of conscience” who tells you not to think, say, and do wrong things, and the ego makes the decision. Does this sound familiar to you? Suppose we call the id, the devil, the superego, God’s Word, and the ego, the one who makes the decision, would you understand Freud better? What of Freud’s defense mechanisms? Repression, projection, displacement, denial, reaction formation, rationalization, fixation, regression, and sublimation. Have you ever used one of these? What of Erikson’s Stages of Development? Have you ever sat with someone and listened to them pour out their grief about the things that happened to them when they were growing up? For example, it has been found that basic trust and optimism are formed in the first year of a person’s life, usually from their primary care-giver, and this can affect the individual’s trust and mistrust attitudes. In the last years of a person’s life the crisis is on integrity Vs. despair – perspective, satisfaction with one’s past life, and wisdom. Ever met someone who found it hard to believe the Lord loves them because of some event that occurred in their life? Ever observed how absorbed old people are with the past, and marveled at their wisdom? Are there critical stages to a person’s development from an infant to a full grown adult? One of the most amazing factors you will discover as you go over this material, is that the Bible said it first. Man only discovers truth that is already there. It is not that truth changes, but that we make discoveries. But man has a way of putting a different name to what God’s Word has said and calling it their own discovery. A kind of plagiarism that they get away with because God is not mean spirited? What of Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, only he missed the most important one -the need to worship. Look around you in this world, and read all the history books and then answer a very basic question: “What has caused all the wars and major disagreements?” Maslow ends with the need for self-actualization. Have you met someone that was self-actualized, and was still lacking and seeking? Still unsatisfied, and discontented? Is there a Christ- actualization? Is this what the Bible means by regeneration? Behold, all things become new? The learned apostle, Paul spoke of the breadth, and length and depth and height (Eph. 3:18). Ready to move into happiness? Click here to order.

Vatican gives Marx a thumbs-up (Pushing the One World Order Economic Doctrines)

Posted by commendatori on October 23, 2009

 See also:  Evolution, Communism, and the NWO

Amid the worst economic recession in generations, Karl Marx, who famously described religion as “the opium of the people”, got a thumbs-up from the Vatican overturning a century of Catholic hostility to his creed.

Marx, who predicted that capitalism would be destroyed by its internal contradictions, has joined Galileo  (HelioCentric Model), Charles Darwin (evolution) and Oscar Wilde (Gay-Bisexual-Pedophile Agenda) on a growing list of historical figures to have undergone an unlikely reappraisal by the Roman Catholic Church, The Times newspaper said today.

The British daily, quoting the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano, said Marx’s early critiques of capitalism had highlighted the “social alienation” felt by the”large part of humanity” that remained excluded from economic and political decision-making.

Amid signs of recovery in global financial markets, Christian leaders have flayed the capitalist system for displaying a lack of moral values, arguing that ethical debates needs to be given greater prominence.

Georg Sans, a German-born professor of the history of contemporary philosophy at the pontifical Gregorian University, argues that Marx’s work remained especially relevant today as mankind was seeking “a new harmony” (read: New World Order) between its needs and the natural environment.

The report quoted Sans as saying that Marx’s theories may help to explain the enduring issue of income inequality within capitalist societies. Blaming the Communists, he argues that Marx’s intellectual legacy was marred by the misappropriation of his work by the communist regimes of the 20th century.

The Vatican, in a reappraisal of Galileo, last year erected a statue of the great astronomer who was put on trial in 1633 for his observation that the Earth moved around the Sun.

In February a leading Roman church official declared Darwin’s theory of evolution compatible with the Christian faith, and in July L’Osservatore praised Oscar Wilde, the gay playwright, as “a man who behind a mask of amorality asked himself what was just and what was mistaken”.

Two years ago Benedict XVI singled out Marxism as one of the great scourges of the modern age. The Pope’s latest encyclical, Charity in Truth, argued that global capitalism has lost its way and that Church teachings can help to restore economic health by focusing on justice for the weak and closer regulation of the market, the report in the London daily said.  (If  so, then why did Jesus overturn the tables the Money lenders were using in the temple, because the church has no authority over economic issues, and should limit to Spiritual issues)

Professor Sans’s article was first published in La Civiltà Cattolica, a Jesuit paper, which is vetted in advance by the Vatican Secretariat of State. The decision to republish it in the Vatican newspaper gives the unlikely reappraisal of Marx by the Roman Catholic Church added papal endorsement.

Eisenhower & Kenndedy Warnings

Posted by commendatori on May 21, 2009

“…This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence – economic, political, even spiritual – is felt in every city, every Statehouse, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.

A classic from Kennedy

Mena Connection: Compromised: Clinton, Bush and the CIA, Drug smuggling

Posted by commendatori on May 12, 2009

References in this video are from the book “Compromised

Film that includes clips from mainsteam media at the time, CBS etc. http://www.ncoic.com/clinton.htm ARKANSAS GOVERNOR BILL CLINTON PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH CIA DRUGS FOR GUNS CONNECTION By Paul DeRienzo An independent group of researchers in Arkansas are charging that Governor Bill Clinton is covering up an airport used by the CIA and major cocaine smugglers in a remote corner of the Ozark mountains. According to Deborah Robinson of In These Times, the Inter mountain Regional Airport in Mena,Arkansas continues to be the hub of operations for people like assassinated cocaine kingpin Barry Seal as well as government intelligence operations linked to arms and drug smuggling. In the 1980’s, the Mena airport became one of the world’s largest aircraft refurbishing centers, providing services to planes from many countries. Researchers claim that the largest consumers of aircraft refurbishing services are drug smugglers and intelligence agencies involved in covert activities.In fact, residents of Mena, Arkansas, have told reporters that former marine Lt. Colonel Oliver North was a frequent visitor during the 1980’s. Eugene Hasenfus, a pilot who was shot down in a Contra supply plane over Nicaragua in 1986, was also seen in town renting cargo vehicles. A federal Grand Jury looking into activities at the Mena airport refused to hand down any indictments after drug running charges were made public.Deborah Robinson says that Clinton had “ignored the situation” until he began his presidential campaign.” Clinton then said he would provide money for a state run investigation of the Mena airport. But according to Robinson, the promise of an investigation was never followed up by Clinton’s staff. In fact, a local Arkansas state prosecutor blasted Clinton’s promise of an investigation, comparing it to “spitting on a forest fire.”

Missing: Shame, Guilt and Remorse

Posted by commendatori on May 9, 2009

Missing: Shame, Guilt and Remorse
Signs of a Society That Can No Longer Blush

By Bruce A. Ritter
May 04, 2009

Africa, deep in the Third World: No one hears the screams of a nine-year-old girl suffering at the merciless hand of ragtag “soldiers.” The assault is violent—brutal—unthinkable—yet commonplace in a land without hope, a world in which the helpless suffer and the remorseless roam free.

Evening, the parking lot of an out-of-the-way restaurant infamous for adulterous rendezvous: Surrounded by floodlights and a television crew, a husband lunges at his wife and threatens to harm her as she cowers behind the host of a TV reality show. The host asks, “Why are you cheating on your wife?”

The husband feels no shame, no sense of guilt or remorse, only “righteous” indignation over being caught—and on camera. He blames his wife for not understanding the affair meant nothing to him. “You know I always come home to you.”

A nursing home where loved ones rarely visit: Caregivers taunt, slap, shake, push, punch, beat and spit on elderly residents suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

A prominent cable television news program: Horrified viewers watch CCTV footage of a car speeding away after it hits a jaywalking pedestrian. Onlookers on the street hesitate. Some call 911, others draw closer to gawk at the unconscious man; all wait before offering assistance.

From the Third World to First World “civilization,” people from all walks of life either commit vile acts without remorse or think only of themselves when others need help.

Teachers, convinced they have “fallen in love,” prey upon students for sexual encounters, stealing their innocence, in effect, sentencing young minds to a lifetime of mental and emotional anguish.

Teens and pre-teens see nothing wrong with “sexting”—sending risqué, even nude, digital images of themselves to their peers. They fail (perhaps refuse) to comprehend that, despite all efforts to push “delete,” anything sent electronically will exist in cyberspace for many years to come—and could lead to being charged with a crime.

A Wall Street con artist swindles family, “friends” and colleagues out of untold millions of dollars.

A paranoid and delusional dictator strikes fear in the international community as he test fires a costly, state-of-the-art weapon—the price of which could have fed millions of his starving citizens and prevented needless deaths.

In the 21st century—the age of instant communication, instant travel and instant pleasures—shame lies on its deathbed, remorse gasps its last breath, and personal guilt is fast-becoming extinct. It’s time to understand why.

Changing Standards

The Victorian Era was a glorious time for the world-spanning British Empire. Yet it was also a period of extreme sexual prudery. The subject of sex was taboo, viewed as shameful, despite being a God-ordained blessing for husband and wife.

With the nightmarish horrors of World War I came the apathy of the disillusioned “Lost Generation,” the Roaring Twenties and the cynicism of “eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die.”

The Great Depression and then the Second World War ushered in an era of harsh and desperate times, leading mankind teetering on the brink of destruction. Out of it, America emerged as a world superpower, with calls of patriotism and “doing your part.” Citizens, embracing the importance of the nuclear family, advocated conservative, middle class values.

But the 1950s, the decade of “country and family first—don’t question authority,” gave way to the 1960s, the decade of “question everything” and “don’t trust anyone over age 30,” along with political assassinations and the sexual revolution.

With the laidback, “go with the flow” 1970s came oil embargoes, high gas prices, high unemployment rates, the rise of two-income families, the abuse of government powers, and embarrassing U.S. losses in the Cold War.

The “Morning in America” 1980s brought a hollow morality, leading to the situation ethics of the tattooed, body-pierced, “hooking up” 1990s, and the polarizing of the secularism versus evangelical “righteousness” of the 21st century.

Each generation thought it knew better than the previous one. Things people felt shame and remorse over in the 1950s they questioned in the 60s, tolerated in the 70s, and embraced in the 1980s and beyond.

Foundation of Civilization

God created the first man and woman, Adam and Eve, and gave them plain instructions: “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat of it: for in the day that you eat thereof you shall surely die” (Gen. 2:16-17).

Eating the fruit of the Tree of Life symbolized choosing to follow God’s will, allowing Him to determine how man should live. Eating the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil represented choosing to make decisions based on one’s own understanding.

Adam and Eve ate of the wrong tree.

When they heard God’s presence draw near, they hid from Him because they had decided to be ashamed for being naked. They did not wait for their Creator to tell them when or in what circumstances they should feel embarrassment.

And that was the problem: Instead of being humble, teachable, ready to let God instruct them in making successful decisions, Adam and Eve became their own judges. They decided for themselves that they should feel embarrassed for being naked.

Sadly, civilization was founded on man’s natural inclination to judge for himself how to live, how to make life decisions, how to direct his own steps.

Yet God’s Word declares, “It is not in man that walks to direct his steps” (Jer. 10:23) and “There is a way that seems right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” (Prov. 16:25).

No One Standard

Approximately one in every three people on Earth claim to worship the same God and hold sacred the same Bible—yet the world’s 2.1 billion professing Christians are divided among competing and disagreeing churches, denominations and sects. Catholics, Protestants, evangelicals—none walk together in absolute doctrinal agreement.

Others assert that the Bible is still in effect, yet they have added (unnecessarily) humanly devised traditions and manmade codes of conduct that have turned the Law of God into a heavy burden.

Many professing Christians claim God’s Law is “done away.” Notice a prophecy about today’s religious leaders: “Her priests [this world’s religious leaders] have violated My law, and have profaned My holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they showed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from My Sabbaths, and I am profaned among them” (Ezek. 22:26).

If there is no Law, then sin does not exist, for “Whosoever commits sin transgresses [breaks, violates] also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law” (I John 3:4). And if there is no sin, then there is no reason to feel remorse.

Ours is an age of changing moralities: Man conducts himself according to what “seems right in his own eyes.” Religions cannot agree to one standard of belief. Governments are the same, with politicians changing sides whenever the winds of public opinion change direction.

People feel shame and remorse for their actions when they believe in a standard of right and wrong. But in this modern world, standards deteriorate with every passing generation.

Humanity is fast approaching a time Jesus Christ warned would come, a period that would mirror Noah’s final days in the Pre-Flood World. People will—as they did prior to the Great Flood—continue daily life as though nothing is wrong (Luke 17:26), all while ignoring God’s warning, “until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.”

Except for Noah and his family members, God took the life of every human being—but why?

Notice Genesis 6: “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great [abundant] in the earth, and that every imagination [purpose] of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented [regretted] the Lord that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart” (vs. 5-6).

Jesus foretold the perverse spiritual conditions of the final days before His imminent Return to replace the governments of men with the kingdom of God: “And because iniquity [lawlessness] shall abound, the love of many shall wax [grow] cold” (Matt. 24:12).

Genuine outgoing concern for others will “wax cold” because sin—hatred, malice, selfishness and insincerity—will abound!

Darker times are ahead—especially for the American and British peoples. Describing the United States, Britain and their sister nations of the West, the Bible states, “For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one deals falsely. They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of My people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.

“Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? No, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, says the Lord.

“Thus says the Lord, Stand you in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and you shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein” (Jer. 6:15-16).

Read America and Britain in Prophecy, by David C. Pack, and discover why the peoples of these nations “were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush.”

Majority Of U.S. States Join Sovereignty Movement, Assert 10th Amendment Rights

Posted by commendatori on February 26, 2009

February 23, 2009

A majority of states have bills passed or have proposed bills which affirm 10th Amendment rights. Some affirm additional rights and/or give specific reasons. New Hampshire has written the most aggressive legislation.

With the economy collapsing, it is a very real and immediate danger that the federal government can turn into a completely criminal and fascist government. They’ll put foreign troops on their streets. They’ll grab people to put in forced labor or concentration camps if they are unemployed or protesting. They’ll conduct experiments on these prisoners.

This is especially true since a private corporation owned by a small group of people, who own over half the world’s wealth, control our currency and monetary policy through the Federal Reserve. They also have such power over the world as a whole through the World Bank, IMF, most other national central banks, numerous well-funded non-government organizations, and numerous corrupted government officials.

The Federal Reserve owners want the economy to collapse so they can grab real assets and power. Their whole monetary system is a giant ponzi scheme designed to fail because money is based on the issuance of debt, and the interest owed is not put into the system except through more debt with more interest.

The stock market has dropped 50% in value since this started last year. This is a great depression. The unemployment will rise. The spending of the two bailouts plus the trillions the Federal Reserve has printed will cause inflation to rise sharply. This same situation happened to the Soviet Union. This is not just an economic recession.

This is not just about mortgages since the value of mortgages is much less than the spending packages. The financial releveraging of the mortgages in the form of financial derivatives has magnified the problem. Giving loans to high risk individuals and giving ARM loans did stimulate the problem. The manipulation of oil prices through dollar devaluation and speculation also helped stimulate problem.

This current economic problem is largely due to the fact that we’ve been existing on borrowed time, running huge trade deficits and growing debt exponentially. Our assets now exceed our debt. We now owe more interest on our debts than we can possibly earn. The debt ponzi scheme our currency is based has busted and has started the process of collapse. We can’t spend our way out of this because we’re out of assets and out of credit.

This group of men who own most of the world’s currencies and wealth want complete centralized control of printing money. They also want a powerful undemocratic regional and world government which can usurp the sovereignty of national governments. They want more European Unions. They want a stronger United Nations. They want to push their own agendas, which include population reduction through eugenics. The threat is real and well documented in policy documents and in the mainstream press.

The Federal Reserve is doing to the United States exactly what the IMF and World Bank do to third world nations. Unless we wake up and get our head out of our fluoride and Prozac ass, we’re going to find ourselves as a third world nation, if not in the middle of World War III, the Fourth Reich, civil war, and revolution.

The only way we can stop the U.S. government and these banks is through the states. If the states are united, the people are united. If the people are united, the U.S. government ceases to function, and the states are able to reform a functioning and lawful U.S. government instead of the completely corrupt, rogue, destructive, and lawless federal government we have now.

Armed rebellion is not going to work. It will just result in a lot of dead people because the U.S. government has excessive firepower. Violent rebellion is exactly what the men in control of our money want.

I encourage everyone to write, email, or call their state legislatures to encourage the passage of such bills. You may also wish to contact your Federal Reserve senators and representative letting them know you’ve lost faith in their ability to represent the people of the United States.

We need stronger legislation with stronger teeth to make a stand peacefully and legally. We must act to prevent what is happening in Arcadia, Iowa, with the Iowa National Guard training for door-to-door gun confiscation.

We can’t allow the U.S. government to continue to usurp state sovereignty. If we allow the U.S. government to do this, we’re going to have a lot of dead people in this nation because a lot of people aren’t going to give up their guns and aren’t going to tolerate the U.S. military, corporate militias, and foreign troops invading their communities and homes.

The states may be forced to stand down. However, we started the process of thinking locally to solve our problems and to make it through these tough times. We want local, responsible, and focused local and state law enforcement to maintain order. We don’t want foreign troops and the U.S. military to do this for us.

We should consider training our local and state law enforcement to stop such door-to-door terrorism by agents of the U.S. government and the Federal Reserve. We should consider making it a high crime in the state for a federal official to offer a bribe or give threats and a high crime to receive such a bribe. We should consider forming voluntary local and state minutemen under the authority of local and state government to maintain order in emergencies.

Whether you agree with everything I put forth or not, a majority of the people do believe the U.S. government is corrupt, out-of-control, and don’t represent the interests of the people. If you don’t agree, you haven’t done the research nor have you paid close enough attention to the news. We’re on the verge of major crisis and change.

Here are a list of states who have passed or proposed bills to affirm 10th Amendment rights. I have not verified which bills have passed though many of them have been passed. Many of them are very new. We need to continue to encourage the states to take more specific action because of the very real dangers. I’ll try to keep this list updated with links.

US entering Food Shortage Very Soon

Posted by commendatori on January 12, 2009

Since the enactment of the Agricultural Act of 1949, CCC’s major activity has been the administration and implementation of nonrecourse loans to producers of major agricultural commodities. Generally, Congress establishes loan rates for certain commodities on a per-unit basis. Under the program’s “nonrecourse” provisions, the producer may satisfy the loan obligation through forfeiture to CCC of the commodity pledged as collateral for the loan. As a result, CCC acquires commodities that are forfeited or delivered under these nonrecourse loans. The accumulation of stocks of these forfeited commodities requires CCC to maintain provisions for their eventual disposal. The acquisition, procurement, storage, distribution, and disposal of commodities are handled by the Farm Service Agency under the administration of the Deputy Administrator for Commodity Opeartions. The regulations at 7 CFR part 1402 contain CCC policy for certain commodities available for sale by CCC.

Here you will find current as well as historical commodity price reports, values, CCC inventories, food assistance reports, and more.

Compare Current Inventroy ( November 2008 ) to Inventory in May 2002

CCC Inventory – 11/2008

CCC Inventory – 05/2002

Henry Kissinger stated the premise succinctly in 1970: “Control oil and you control nations; control food and you control the people.”

Socialism and Christianity

Posted by commendatori on January 2, 2009

By Gary Benoit

ITEM: In his new book The August Coup, Mikhail Gorbachev states that socialism “…is an idea that draws strength from many achievements of Christianity …. ”

Correction: Socialism and Christianity are irreconcilable. One is based on the atheistic philosophy found in the Communist Manifesto; the other is based on the deity of Jesus Christ.

Anyone who doubts that the Communist Manifesto is also a socialist manifesto need only read Frederick Engels’ preface to the 1888 edition, which declares that the Communist Manifesto “is undoubtedly the most widespread, the most international production of all Socialist literature, the common platform acknowledged by millions of working men from Siberia to California.”

But why wasn’t it called a “Socialist Manifesto” instead? According to Engels, “Socialism was, in 1847, a middle-class movement, Communism a working-class movement …. And as our notion, from the very beginning, was that ‘the emancipation of the working class must be the act of the working class itself,’ there could be no doubt as to which of the two names we must take.”

Socialism means economic control of the people by government. In a socialist country, the state is all-powerful. Such an all-powerful state views itself — and not God — as the ultimate authority. It is not surprising, therefore, that the Communist Manifesto calls for abolishing family, marriage, countries, and religion as well as private property. Under the socialist system the state determines what is right and wrong — without any competing loyalties to God, family, or country.

socialismKarl Marx, the principal author of the Communist Manifesto, once called religion “the opium of the people.” Marx viewed man as mere matter that can be shaped, and perfected, by his external environment. How different this is from the Christian view that man has an eternal soul and is responsible for his own actions!

It is impossible for a true Christian to be a socialist or for a true socialist to be a Christian. Nevertheless, socialists have cleverly twisted the scriptures in order to make their materialistic philosophy appear Christian. As Marx explained in the Communist Manifesto: “Nothing is easier than to give Christian asceticism a Socialist tinge. Has not Christianity declaimed against private property, against marriage, against the State? Has it not preached, in the place of these, charity and poverty, celibacy and mortification of the flesh, monastic life and Mother Church.”

Fear of stricter gun-control laws causing sales to rise

Posted by commendatori on December 30, 2008

BILOXI — The Saturday after Barack Obama was elected president, people jammed Cook’s Gun Shop in Biloxi, eager to purchase the guns they believe might be off limits beginning next year.

gun_control_works21

Manager Michael Creel said sales began to increase last year, but they really ramped up after the election. “It started about a year ago when the election started to heat up,” he said. “People were afraid that if the Democrats won, they would institute more control on guns. It kept building, and the Saturday after the election it was pandemonium in here.”

Gun shop owners and managers throughout south Mississippi are reporting similar trends, which also are reflected across the country.

The FBI reported earlier this month that in November it completed more than 1.5 million background checks, a 41.6 percent increase over November 2007. When Bill Clinton was president, he signed a 10-year ban on assault weapons in 1994, but when it expired, President Bush did not reactivate it. Many gun owners are afraid that ban will be put into effect again once Obama takes office next month.

Kevin Riley, owner of Dad’s Super Pawn in Gulfport, said gun sales began picking up about a month before the election. He said ammunition sales also have increased. “We’re selling ammunition by the case where we used to sell it by the box.”

gun-control

He said people are afraid of stricter gun-control laws but also believe the price could go up if supplies get low.

Riley and Creel said the most popular guns include handguns, semiautomatic rifles and specific military-type guns that are set up for civilians.

They haven’t kept track of the number of gun sales before and after the election, but both said they are selling more guns.

“After Katrina was the most guns I had ever sold in my life,” Riley said. “People were replacing guns they lost in the storm, and they were buying guns to protect their property.”

He said his gun sales haven’t quite reached the post-Katrina levels, but they’re almost there.

Obama has said in the past he believes state and local governments should have some say over gun control. He also has said he believes in a “common-sense approach” to curtail the number of illegal guns that end up on the streets. Those comments have caused gun owners all across the U.S. to buy guns now before any new laws go into effect.

Jerry Frayser, owner of Jerry’s Shootin’ Irons and Pawns in Ocean Springs, said people have bought so many guns, supply is now a problem.

“People have pretty much scooped up what they think will be outlawed,” he said, adding sales have been as high in the past month as they were in the previous six months combined.

“There were so many people who said, ‘Let me get what I can while I can,’ and distributors weren’t prepared for it,” Frayser said. He also said one of his gun distributors sold $3 million worth of guns the day after the election.

Creel said he understands why people are nervous, but he doesn’t think gun control is tops on Obama’s to-do list once he takes office. “He’s got bigger fish to fry – like the economy.”

Under guns laws in Mississippi:

– No permit is required to purchase or carry rifles, shotguns or handguns.

– No registration or license is required for owners of rifles, shotguns or handguns.

– A permit is required to carry a concealed handgun.

The Laws of the Pharmaceutical Industry

Posted by commendatori on November 5, 2008

The main principles governing the pharmaceutical “business with disease.” It is not in the financial interests of the pharmaceutical industry to prevent common diseases – the maintenance and expansion of diseases is a precondition for the financial growth of this industry

1 – The pharmaceutical industry is an investment industry driven by the profits of its shareholders. Improving human health is not the driving force of this industry.

2The pharmaceutical investment industry was artificially created and strategically developed over an entire century by the same investment groups that control the global petrochemical and chemical industries.

3 – The huge profits of the pharmaceutical industry are based on the patenting of new drugs. These patents essentially allow drug manufacturers to arbitrarily define the profits for their products.

4 – The marketplace for the pharmaceutical industry is the human body – but only for as long as the body hosts diseases. Thus, maintaining and expanding diseases is a precondition for the growth of the pharmaceutical industry.

5 – A key strategy to accomplish this goal is the development of drugs that merely mask symptoms while avoiding the curing or elimination of diseases. This explains why most prescription drugs marketed today have no proven efficacy and merely target symptoms.

6 – To further expand their pharmaceutical market, the drug companies are continuously looking for new applications (indications) for the use of drugs they already market. For example, Bayer’s pain pill Aspirin is now taken by 50 million healthy US citizens under the illusion it will prevent heart attacks.

7 – Another key strategy to expand pharmaceutical markets is to cause new diseases with drugs. While merely masking symptoms short term, most of the prescription drugs taken by millions of patients today cause a multitude of new diseases as a result of their known long-term side effects. For example, all cholesterol-lowering drugs currently on the market are known to increase the risk of developing cancer – but only after the patient has been taking the drug for several years.

8 – The known deadly side effects of prescription drugs are the fourth leading cause of death in the industrialized world, surpassed only by the number of deaths from heart attacks, cancer and strokes (Journal of the American Medical Association, April 15, 1998). This fact is no surprise either, because drug patents are primarily issued for new synthetic molecules. All synthetic molecules need to be detoxified and eliminated from the body, a system that frequently fails and results in an epidemic of severe and deadly side effects.

9 – While the promotion and expansion of diseases increase the market of the pharmaceutical investment industry – prevention and root cause treatment of diseases decrease long-term profitability; therefore, they are avoided or even obstructed by this industry. Read the rest of this entry »

US: Bailout, Crisis and Upcoming Fascist Takeover

Posted by commendatori on October 27, 2008

Here is a good article – Review of the Economic situation for the week. They write one every Monday.

Signs Economic Commentary for 29 September 2008 — Signs of the Times News

Here are some excerpts, but I do recommend reading the entire article.

“Here is the borrowing that’s happened in 2008 alone, with precious little public debate:

– $29 billion to bail out Bear Stearns.

– $40 billion in the first mortgage-holder bailout.

– $80 billion for an additional year of Iraq war operations. (Another $150-$200 billion in war costs such as future veterans’ disability benefits were incurred but not funded.)

– Up to $85 billion to bail out AIG.

– $153 billion to households for “economic stimulus.”

– $200 billion, and possibly more, to bail out Fannie and Freddie.

– $290 billion in farm subsidies, despite agricultural prices and grains profits being at record highs.

– $700 billion general bailout of securities backed by bad debt. (The International Monetary Fund estimates this figure will rise to at least $1 trillion.)

That comes to $1.6 trillion, explaining the debt-ceiling rise, and does not include roughly $300 billion in essentially interest-free cash issued to banks by the Federal Reserve on an emergency basis, which may or may not be repaid, but which in any case make all existing money somewhat less valuable. Why is the debt aspect of the splurge barely being remarked on by the mainstream media and by politicians? Why are the young not furious? And about that $700 billion about to the shoveled to the Wall Street elite — in 2007, George W. Bush vetoed an increase of $7 billion per year in health care spending for the poor, saying the country couldn’t afford it.”…

…”The Golden Rule when consuming all mass media coverage of economics is, of course, to remember that it is always wrong; either factually or in its timing, or both.

Which means, given the universally bleak tone of last night’s Crunchy TV, that either:

a) the economy is about to boom

b) the situation is even worse than portrayed and we’re facing The Apocalypse

Or, those calling the shots want the economy to crash now. Since all the assets were propped up by optimism, basically, making everyone severely pessimistic will ensure a crash. And, as the blogger, Badtux points out, deflation is to be feared more than inflation by average people. The rich, however, are hurt more by inflation. After a deflationary crash, those with cash can buy up all the assets for pennies on the dollar.”…

…”If you are wondering, I believe the AIG bailout is a very good model for how it has to go down. These institutions get the money — but the government gets ownership of them and can throw out the bad managers and reform their practices so they don’t do this stupid evil s**t again, and then sell off the workable assets and fold the part that’s not workable. Any bailout that’s going to work long-term is going to have to work like that, else this nonsense is just going to happen again. You can’t just throw money at these institutions. You have to take them over and reform them.”…

…”Now, at that point economic activity has *also* fallen, since economic activity needs cash to lubricate it and a lot of cash has been diverted towards futile attempts to pay unpayable debts rather than buying stuff. Figure that the economy is moving 10% of the goods and services that it formerly moved. Furthermore, food was planted and picked at the older, cheaper value of the food. So the stores are full of food, but nobody can afford to buy it because an orange that costs $1 is now only worth 1c but the store can’t sell it to you for 1c and make money because they paid the farmer 50c for it at the beginning of the year (thanks to the futures market). The end result is food riots, crops rotting in the fields, and the real threat of a fascist takeover of the country. Look up Father Coughlan and get back to us — it was only barely that FDR kept Father Coughlan’s cronies from taking over (see: Business Plot) and sending us down the same path that Germany and Italy went down. And that was before twenty-five years of rote recitation of “government is the problem, not the solution” discredited FDR’s brand of liberalism in the minds of most Americans — today, a FDR would not be allowed to be elected (I don’t consider Obama to be an FDR, looking at his policy proposals on his web site they appear to be fairly moderate free-enterprise-oriented proposals, not something shockingly socialist like the CCC program that built much of the infrastructure in Death Valley).

In other words, I don’t expect the U.S. to go down the path of FDR if we have another Great Depression. I expect a Mussolini, probably some general taking charge to “restore confidence and pride in our government”, and the usual stuff that happens when you have a Mussolini in charge. Bad things. Really bad things. You know the drill.”…

…”So the stage is now set for a fascist, Mussolini-style takeover of the U.S. Take a look at the following list of laws passed since 9/11,
courtesy of
George Ure:

1. USA Patriot Act
– A 342 page document presented to Congress one day before voting on it that allows the government access to your bank and email accounts, as well as your medical and phone records with no court order. They can also search your home anytime without a warrant.

2. USA Patriot Act II
– This one allows secret government arrests, the legal authority to seize your American citizenship, and the extraction of your DNA if you are deemed a potential terrorist.

3. Military Commissions Act of 2006
– Ends habeas corpus, the right to an attorney, and the right to court review of one’s detention and arrest. Without this most basic right, all other rights are gone too since anyone can be detained indefinitely. Now anyone may be arrested and incarcerated and nobody would know.

4. NSPD 51
– A directive signed by George W. Bush on May 9, 2007, that allows the President to declare martial law, effectively transforming the U.S. into a dictatorship with no checks and balances from the Legislative or Judicial Branches. Parts of this directive are considered classified and members of Congress have been denied the right to review it.

5. Protect America Act of 2007
– Allows unprecedented domestic wiretapping and surveillance activities with a reduction in FISA court oversight. Probable cause is not needed.

6. John Warner Defense Authorization Act
– Signed by George W. Bush on October 17, 2007, this act allows the President to declare a public emergency and station troops anywhere in America without the consent of the governor or local authorities to “suppress public disorder.”

7. Homegrown Terrorism and Radicalization Act
– Passed overwhelmingly by Congress on
October 23, 2007, is now awaiting a Senate vote. This act will beget a new crackdown on dissent and the Constitutional rights of American citizens. The definitions of “terrorism” and “extremism” are so vague that they could be used to generalize against any group that is working against the policies of the Administration. In this bill, “violent radicalization” criminalizes thought and ideology while “homegrown terrorism” is defined as “the planed use of force to coerce the government.” The term, “force” could encompass political activities such as protests, marches, or any other form of non-violent resistance.

So when you add in:

It starts to get a little scary.”

Scary indeed.

Here is an easier to read link for “Haliburton Confirms Camps Constructed

Another good article:

Mike Whitney: Black Monday?

Some excerpts

“Rep Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) gave the best speech of the day railing against the financial industry and defending the interests of working class Americans.

Rep. Dennis Kucinich: “The $700 bailout bill is being driven by fear not fact. This is too much money, in too short of time, going to too few people, while too many questions remain unanswered. Why aren’t we having hearings…Why aren’t we considering any other alternatives other than giving $700 billion to Wall Street?
Why aren’t we passing new laws to stop the speculation which triggered this? Why aren’t we putting up new regulatory structures to protect the investors? Why aren’t we directly helping homeowners with their debt burdens? Why aren’t we helping American families faced with bankruptcy? Isn’t time for fundamental change to our debt-based monetary system so we can free ourselves from the manipulation of the Federal Reserve and the banks? Is this the US Congress or the Board of Directors of Goldman Sachs?”

Bless him.

“There was greater opposition to the Paulson bill than any legislation in the last half century. The groundswell of public outrage has been unprecedented, and yet, Congress, completely insulated from the demands of their constituents, continues to blunder ahead following the same pro-industry script as their ideological twins in the White House. There’s not a dime’s worth of difference between the two parties. Not surprisingly, neither Pelosi nor any of the Democratic leadership has even met with any of the more than 200 leading economists who have stated unequivocally that the bailout will not address the central problems that are wreaking havoc on the financial system. Instead, they have caved in to Bush’s demagoguery and the spurious claims of G-Sax bagman Henry Paulson, a man who has misled the public on every issue related to the subprime/financial fiasco so far.”

Hmmm…I would think that meeting with experts would be the wise thing to do. But, that is just me, I guess. I have had my suspicions about Pelosi for some time. She does not quack like a Democrat…

9/11 Synchronicities in Movies

Posted by commendatori on October 21, 2008

9/11 Synchronicities in Movies

HollyWood 9/11

You have to see it, to believe it.

If I were to ask anybody on the street if they could have foreseen the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 the prevailing response would be on the whole in the negative. Even if I were to ask leaders within the government, judiciary, military, commerce or religion the reaction would be very similar. Indeed, the Bush administration has publicly maintained ‘that no one in government had envisioned a suicide hijacking before it happened’ (CBS News 17 May 2002). Former US National Security Adviser and current Secretary of State, Condoleeza Rice, asserted in the months following the terrorist attacks: ‘I don’t think anybody could have predicted that…they would try to use an airplane as a missile, a hijacked airplane as a missile’ (CBS News 17 May 2002). Even the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Air Force General Richard Myers confessed: ‘You hate to admit it, but we hadn’t thought about this’ (Rhem 23 October 2001).

Despite repeated denials by Bush administration officials that ‘no one in government had imagined such an attack’ (CBS News 17 May 2002), if I were to pose the same question to that privileged and influential few in Hollywood that make a living by imagining the unimaginable the answers might be far more revealing in light of what they have projected on a subliminal level in some of their films prior to 9/11.

Conspiracy of Silence – Pedophilia rings in Washington DC

Posted by commendatori on October 12, 2008

In 1993 a team from Yorkshire Television came to Omaha, Nebraska to document, investigate, and un-cover the mysteries surrounding the Franklin case and the ensuing cover-up. What the team would find through the course of their near year long investigation would ultimately reach to the White House itself, where they found that then Vice-President George H.W. Bush had been implicated in the crimes surrounding the case. The explosive documentary was scheduled to air in 1994 on the Discovery Channel. At the last minute to program was pulled from the airwaves, and to this day has never made to television screens. See the documentary certain interests didn’t want you to see.

Oct. 1st Military starts Martial Law Mission

Posted by commendatori on September 24, 2008

“We shall abolish the orgasm. Our neurologists are at work upon it now. There will be no loyalty, except loyalty towards the Party. There will be no love, except the love of Big Brother. There will be no laughter, except the laugh of triumph over a defeated enemy. There will be no art, no literature, no science. When we are omnipotent there will be no need of science. There will be no distinction between beauty and ugliness. There will be no curiosity, no enjoyment of the process of life. All competing pleasures will be destroyed. But always—do not forget this Winston—always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—forever.”

– George Orwell

The War on Terror Debunked, America Tries to Raise a Dead Enemy from the Grave

Posted by commendatori on August 29, 2008

The war on terror has been thoroughly debunked (see this and this).

So the military-industrial complex is trying to find another enemy sufficiently scary to justify trillions of dollars in defense spending and the continuation of the perpetual state of war.

Our former enemy – the Soviet Union – has now broken up. Russia’s economy pales in comparison to that of the former USSR. Russia is run more by billionaires and the Russian Mob than by the Communists. And Russia harbors very few imperial ambitions.

But that isn’t stopping people like Dick Cheney from trying to raise the “Red menace” from the dustbin of history.

Remember – in the 70’s – Cheney was instrumental in generating fake intelligence exaggerating the Soviet threat in order to undermine coexistence between the U.S. and Soviet Union, which conveniently justified huge amounts of cold war spending. See also this article.

Indeed, Cheney and Don Rumsfeld were probably more responsible than anyone else for the original Red scare and Cold War.

With the air quickly escaping from the whole “War on Terror” fiasco, Cheney and the boys are trying a re-run of their tried-and-true fear tactics regarding the Ruskies, even though the “Soviet menace” is dead and buried.

Remember that, according to former British Defense Secretary, Cheney called the shots in the Iraq war. And a top official at the State Department stated there was a secret “cabal” involving Cheney, and that Cheney and a handful of others had hijacked the country’s foreign policy.

Biggest Newspaper In Holland Says Dutch Intelligence Helped Prepare Imminent Attack On Iran

Posted by commendatori on August 29, 2008

De Telegraaf front page says sources inside AVID helped CIA map air attack

Steve Watson
Infowars.net
Fri
day, August 29, 2008

The biggest Newspaper in the Netherlands today devotes its front page to news that the Dutch intelligence agency has helped the CIA prepare for an air attack on Iran which it now believes is imminent.

AVID, Holland’s military intelligence service, has pulled back from operations it was carrying out inside Iran as it believes an American led attack will go ahead within weeks according to De Telegraaf’s sources.

The headline reads:

“AIVD is calling back spy because of US plans
ATTACK ON IRAN IMMINENT”

De Telegraaf reports that the decision has already been made by the U.S.
to attack Iran using unmanned aircraft. Potential targets are said to be nuclear facilities and military installations. The latter have been mapped by the CIA with the help of the Dutch secret service.

A portion of the article reads:

Good sources have declared to the Telegraaf that the AIVD has been operating in Iran for the last few years with the purpose of the infiltration and sabotage of the weapons industry of the Iranian republic.

The operations are said to have been “very successful” but have recently been put to a halt because of american plans for an air attack. Information regarding the AIVD operation has been shared with the CIA in recent years according to the sources.

Iran is probably working towards an atomic bomb and refuses to comply to western demands to stop enriching uranium. In june Israeli vice president Shaul Mofaz made the statement that an Israeli attack is inevitable if Iran continues its quest for atomic weapons.

The full article is online here.

A roughly translated version can also be found here.

Holland is a staunch ally of the U.S. government in the “war on terror”. Dutch troops have served on the front lines in both the Afghanistan and Iraq wars.

Airport threat to your laptop

Posted by commendatori on August 4, 2008

Airport threat to your laptop: U.S. also gets power to seize iPods and mobiles in new anti-terror measure

Travellers to the U.S. could have their laptops and other electronic devices seized at the airport under new anti-terror measures.

Federal agents have been granted powers to take such devices and hold them as long as they like.

The Department of Homeland Security said the policies applied to anyone entering the country by land, sea or air, including U.S. citizens.

The extent of the new powers, which have been secretly in place for some time, was revealed yesterday in the Washington Post.

They cover hard drives, flash drives, mobile phones, iPods, pagers, beepers, and video and audio tapes, as well as books, pamphlets and other written materials, the report said.

Federal agents must take measures to protect business information and lawyer-client privileged material.

Copies of data must be destroyed when a review is completed and no probable cause exists to keep the information.

But agents are allowed to share the contents of seized computers with other agencies and private entities for data decryption and ‘other reasons’.

Copies sent to non-federal entities must be returned to the DHS, but there is no limitation on authorities keeping written notes or reports about the materials.

The new powers came to light under pressure from civil liberties and business travel groups after increasing numbers of travellers reported that they had laptops, phones and other digital devices removed and examined.

The development was described as ‘truly alarming’ by Wisconsin Democrat Senator-Russell Feingold, who is investigating U.S. border search practices.

He said he intends to introduce legislation that would require reasonable suspicion for border searches, as well as prohibit profiling on race, religion or national origin.

DHS officials insisted the policies were reasonable and necessary to prevent terrorism.

They said they had been disclosed only because of public interest.

But Greg Nojeim, senior counsel at the Center for Democracy and Technology, said it was alarming that the policies ‘don’t establish any criteria for whose computer can be searched.’

He added: ‘They are saying that they can rifle through all the information contained in a traveller’s laptop without having even a smidgeon of evidence that the traveller is breaking the law.’

Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said last month that ‘the most dangerous contraband is often contained in laptop computers or other electronic devices’.

Searches had uncovered ‘violent jihadist materials’ as well as images of child pornography.

In an article for U.S.A Today, Chertoff wrote that ‘as a practical matter, travellers only go to secondary [a more thorough examination] when there is some level of suspicion.’

He said legislation setting a particular standard for searches would have a ‘dangerous, chilling effect’ because it could contradict assessments by officers, often made in a split second.

In April, the U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco upheld the government’s power to conduct searches of an international traveller’s laptop without suspicion of wrongdoing.

The Shock Doctrine

Posted by commendatori on August 3, 2008

In THE SHOCK DOCTRINE, Naomi Klein explodes the myth that the global free market triumphed democratically. Exposing the thinking, the money trail and the puppet strings behind the world-changing crises and wars of the last four decades, The Shock Doctrine is the gripping story of how America’s “free market” policies have come to dominate the world– through the exploitation of disaster-shocked people and countries.

At the most chaotic juncture in Iraq’s civil war, a new law is unveiled that would allow Shell and BP to claim the country’s vast oil reserves…. Immediately following September 11, the Bush Administration quietly out-sources the running of the “War on Terror” to Halliburton and Blackwater…. After a tsunami wipes out the coasts of Southeast Asia, the pristine beaches are auctioned off to tourist resorts…. New Orleans’s residents, scattered from Hurricane Katrina, discover that their public housing, hospitals and schools will never be reopened…. These events are examples of “the shock doctrine”: using the public’s disorientation following massive collective shocks – wars, terrorist attacks, or natural disasters — to achieve control by imposing economic shock therapy. Sometimes, when the first two shocks don’t succeed in wiping out resistance, a third shock is employed: the electrode in the prison cell or the Taser gun on the streets.

Based on breakthrough historical research and four years of on-the-ground reporting in disaster zones, The Shock Doctrine vividly shows how disaster capitalism – the rapid-fire corporate reengineering of societies still reeling from shock – did not begin with September 11, 2001. The book traces its origins back fifty years, to the University of Chicago under Milton Friedman, which produced many of the leading neo-conservative and neo-liberal thinkers whose influence is still profound in Washington today. New, surprising connections are drawn between economic policy, “shock and awe” warfare and covert CIA-funded experiments in electroshock and sensory deprivation in the 1950s, research that helped write the torture manuals used today in Guantanamo Bay.

The Shock Doctrine follows the application of these ideas though our contemporary history, showing in riveting detail how well-known events of the recent past have been deliberate, active theatres for the shock doctrine, among them: Pinochet’s coup in Chile in 1973, the Falklands War in 1982, the Tiananmen Square Massacre in 1989, the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the Asian Financial crisis in 1997 and Hurricane Mitch in 1998.
