Our Advice Re: Russian and President Putin: Stand Firm on the Principles of What is Right!

               I am going to share some wisdom with you that I have found extremely reliable over my fifty-five years and thirty of those years researching, consulting, and advising kings, queens, prime ministers, finance ministers, and laymen of all trades....

King James Bible
Stand Firm in the Lord
1Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved.
2I beseech Euodias, and beseech Syntyche, that they be of the same mind in the Lord. 3And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life.
4Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. 5Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. 6Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

8Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. 9Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
Philippian Generosity
10But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity. 11Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. 12I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. 14Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my affliction.

Now, I have researched the accuracy of the KJV back to 200 A.D. and let no one doubt that it is 98% accurate to the original Greek and Hebrew. 

Mr. Putin does not have right or might on his side. He and his army stand against God Almighty. It is a terrible place to behold and an even worse place to be in relationship to your creator. God holds Russia and Mr. Putin in his hand and has kept from crushing them because he hold out hope for a repentant heart.

The recent childish retaliation by Mr. Putin in reducing the natural gas supplies to several European Union countries is only the beginning of his numerous tantrums to come. His continued arrogance in interfering in eastern Ukraine and lying about Russian troops crossing the border into Ukraine must not be tolerated. 

Stand firm for what is right. Mr. Putin and his countrymen are war criminals at the very least who have participated in the deaths of thousands of innocent civilians. Mr. Putin, by his own hand has provoked the extension of sanctions against his country. 

Trade routes must be opened up between Ukraine and the European Union. I would like to see this expedited. Ukraine must survive intact as a complete country including Crimea at all costs. Russia must not be allowed to violate international law.

LNG Liquified Natural Gas supplies should be flowing into the European Union by the end of this month from around the world at long term contract prices and fair trade standards. Please make sure this happens.

Russia will continue to try to provoke WWIII by harassing other former Russia states, this too must be dealt with as each event occurs. As the Russia economy spirals downward, (I believe oil will bottom out at $25 per barrel later this year and remain there for at least three months or longer.) Russian citizens will not tolerate the isolation and depreciation of their economy and will by spring begin calling for the forceful removal of Mr. Putin and Mr. Leonov. 

As the choke hold tightens, expect additional outbursts and threats of nuclear war (which we all know that no one will win), but STAND FAST and STAND UP FOR WHAT IS RIGHT TOGETHER and DO NOT BACK DOWN.

There are tough decisions to be made, and each of you will doubt your own hearts, but trust in the lord that you are standing up for what is right, what is true, what is decent and fair for everyone. 

One last piece of advice my friends and readers around the world:

The Man of Sin
1Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. 5Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. 7For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 8And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Stand Firm

13But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: 14Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 15Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
16Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, 17Comfort your hearts, and establish you in every good word and work.

Evil NEVER WINS!   There is still hope President Putin, God is waiting for you to repent of your wrongs and make amends. He waits with open arms.

Let Us Not Be Hasty and Prosecute All Of Islam For the Acts of Three Idiotis Islamists

               In Paris, France, three idiots who could not control their emotions murdered 12 people at Charlie Hebdon magazine. If they knew the truth about the alleged prophet Mohammed, or had even done any research about this mythical "prophet" they would not have hurt anyone.
              The truth is that Mohammed and his family were nomads. Mohammed had an opiate problem as well was an avid drinker of fermented liquids. As most opiate smokers can tell you, if you smoke too much, you hear voices, you see colors, you dream dreams.
              Mohammed dreamed he heard the voice of God. He had visions and delusions that he was God. In early Egypt, there were Coptic Christians who preached a slightly different version of Christianity (they still do) than the "catholic" central beliefs recognized by the Nicean Council. Mohammed and his family had grown up with Judaism, Jews, heretics, and other desert religions.
              If you compare the the Pentateuch - the five books alleged  to have been written by or about Moses around 150 BC with the earliest scrolls and manuscripts of the Quran, you will notice that none of Mohammed's ideas and visions are original, they were borrowed by Mohammed, colored a little here and there and presented as hois own thoughts.
              Now, to the ignorant, uneducated desert nomad, Mohammed- backed by his mother and family- began to kill off other nomads in territorial disputes. Instead of claiming victory- Mohammed and his family claimed that "God wills it- Allah Akbar." I guess any excuse for murder will do.
             In researching my first book, "How to Become a Better Christian, " I researched all available texts on every religion that remains today, and even some that don't, all the way back to 500 BC. I am a researcher after all.
             Considering these facts- that Islam is a made up religion that is worshiped by the uneducated countries of the world, is not even close to the most barbaric religion in history - Christianity takes that prize, and that there is so much repression by the clerics and religious fanatics of women, men, and non-believers clearly exposes Islam as a fake and made up religion that was borrowed from The Old Testament of the Holy Bible and bastardized into a religion of domination of women and the uneducated.

               But, I stand by the rights of the ignorant and the uneducated Islamists to believe that cows can fly and that they will inherit the earth.

               By murdering the 12 people in France, these three idiots condemned their souls to hell and their made up religion to ridicule and aspersions. No one will take Islam seriously anymore.

In the Book of Exodus, one of the Ten Commandments is "Thou Shalt Not Kill."  Maybe these Islamic idiots overlooked those verses and thought that God - Allah would look the other way- I think not.

I pray that the truth about Islam will be exposed and brought to light, and those that murder in the name of any religion not be rewarded here in this life or in the afterlife, but that they be forced to relive their sins and crimes over and over and over- that will be their hell.

May God have mercy on their souls, but deliver justice unto them. Amen.

Let's Make 2015 the Year of World Peace!

             I have only one resolution to declare, and that is this, "I will be nicer to my enemies than I was last year." I have a truce or take no prisoners attitude when people really tick me off (I cleaned that up just for you, my readers:). Some people I could just shove a sharp stick through, but then I think how shi..y their lives must already be to be hassling such a nice guy like me.
              Already, we have heard overtures of prospective peace between the United States and Cuba, Eastern Ukraine separatists and Ukraine (Kiev), North and South Korea, Boko Haram (on and off again) with Nigeria, and France's President Hollande will be negotiating a successful outcome with Russia (we hope, after all- life is no fun if you are the king of the hill and have no competition), and even Sudan and South Sudan are beginning to show signs of ending their ridiculous war.
              This year, Saudi Arabia has been asked to broker peace negotiations between Israel, Palestine, and Isis and Egypt/Iraq. We might as well throw in Iran, China, the United States peace talks as well.

               In 2014, before the Ukraine debacle- enough blame to go around now, so don't be testy, the world only had three wars going on.

              Wars are destroyers of economies. They destroy the greatest asset that any country on earth has, and that is its citizens, be they mothers, fathers, or children- every country must have citizens, workers, and ugh! even government employees to be successful and to thrive. A war might kill some of your enemy, but on a different day, those same people could be future relatives, neighbors, friends, customers, and yes, even members of your community who play their music too loud.

So, how about it?

Can we lay down our arguments, our petty disagreements, our spite, our religious differences, and just enjoy being alive for once in this planet's history?

Can we decrease the spending on weapons and use that money to improve this world and make it a better place for everyone to live? Can we change our destructive ways and change our attitudes towards one another and see each other as fellow citizens of the same planet and stop fighting these stupid, wasteful territorial wars that arise out of pride and minor differences?

Can we outlaw wars altogether and hold the warring countries accountable at $1 million per non-combatant killed by United Nations mandate?

Can we stop the human bondage, human trafficking by military and United Nations contractors, and VOTE on the United Nation Resolution 2014 A that was submitted on International Human Trafficking last February and buried by three different UN committees since then?

Can we make water and food accessible to every person on the planet as well as medical services and sanitary waste disposal of garbage and human fecal matter, and can we clean up the Garbage Islands already?

We have the technology to interfere with the earth's weather patterns (even though we have no clue as to what we are doing), but we cannot not, or will not provide basic necessities to every person on the planet?

This world needs to change its priorities in 2015 if it is to survive.

Now, my fellow economists, accountants, financial counselors, and advisers have given the world a second chance- a chance to change the way that we conduct ourselves and our financial relationships with one another- we saved your asses over these past three years, but we need assurances that you have learned to work together or fail together.

I, personally spend untold hours every month reading and researching, planning and emailing world leaders to get them to change or just move out of the way. It is a tiresome process to get some of you to cooperate, even when it is in your own and your country's best interest.

I tried to get President Putin to see reason before we killed Russia's economy. There is still time. Crimea must be returned and the Russia speaking citizens can emigrate to Russia along with the eastern Ukraine separatists and their families.

When Crimea is returned to Ukraine and all Russian troops, advisers, and military equipment and support are removed from Ukraine, the sanctions will gradually be lifted- but not until. Taking Crimea captive was Mr. Putin's folly. He can admit his error, or watch as his once proud country disintegrates from within.

I have offered a compromise, but there has been no reply.

The separatists can freely leave Ukraine and enter exile in Russia and take their families with them.

If Crimea is not returned by March, I fear that Russia and the Eurasian Union will collapse entirely and take all five countries with it.

On the other hand, Lithuania joined the Eurozone today and their future is looking brighter.

Happy New Year Planet Earth! May 2015 be the Year of Peace that we have all been waiting for.

We Believe in God Almighty and of Course, Santa Claus

          Recently, in a first grade class that I was teaching the subject of Christmas, God, and Santa Claus came up. There was no question in the young minds that God existed, but some of the more daring minds challenged one another whether Santa Claus actually existed or not.
          The point was raised, Why would anyone give away millions of dollars of presents every year to children around the world? Being an international consultant to countries around the world on Financial, Environmental, Legislative, and Human Rights issues that gives away millions of dollars of expert advice every year, I understand Santa Claus' heart.
           There are tens of millions of unselfish people like Santa that give freely of their knowledge, time, money, and efforts to help others that they do not know. Myself and my fellow researchers are glad that we are part of a vast network of giving people who do not and would not consider taking money for helping others.
            I give back what God provides to me. You should try it, it feels great. Give with no expectation of ever getting anything in return- not even a thank you. Give in person and anonymously and expect nothing in return. The greatest give anyone can give is the gift of yourself.

            So, go ahead and give to your heart's content. It is better to give than to receive- after all, where would you put everything if you got everything you ever wanted every year?

If you want to learn to live frugally on less than $10,000 US Dollars per year so you can give more to others financially, go to and check out more free financial advice.

Yes, Kids There IS A GOD that created this universe and a SANTA CLAUS, but  

Santa will never out give God.

Thank you God for giving us giving hearts throughout the year. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.

The Need For Stepping Back and Putting More Sanctions On Hold and For Russia to Comply With International Law Now

               Russia's Vladimir Putin has hemmed his country into dire economic straights as a result of his retaliation against Ukraine for their joining the European Union and in the future NATO. Every sovereign nation has the right to defend itself and its citizens from invasion and from internal agents of destruction. Ukraine has taken steps to remove the chains of bondage that tied them to Russia.
                It is time for Putin to return Crimea to Ukraine and to stop threatening the Baltic states and NATO states with war. It is obvious that Russian troops do not want a war with the United States or with NATO. While NATO originally wavered and the European Union hesitated to join western nations in our cry to apply sanctions to Russia, the European Union has stood strong together to fight for what is right.
                Mr. Putin needs to take a long look at the economic mess that he has gotten his country into. While he has recently entered into long term contracts with India and China, he needs to realize that Russia is not the winner in these negotiations, and the economic downside is that China will lose business from the United States as a result of doing business with a rogue Russia, and India will lose the economic support of Asian countries and the European Union the longer they do business with a rogue Russia government.
               What China and India must realize is that Mr. Putin talks out of both sides of his mouth. I have nothing against Mr. Lavrov, who acts as Putin's puppet, repeating the same threats as his mentally deranged and obviously ill president. After all, he is doing what he needs to stay alive.
                In my previous post I laid out what Russia needed to do for our organization to advise the European Union and the United States to deescalate the economically crushing sanctions. I know it has to be a bitter pill for Mr. Putin to swallow that he overstepped when he illegally seized Crimea, when he invaded sovereign Ukraine, and when he provided the missiles to the separatists that were used to murder those on Malaysian Flight MH17. He has made many missteps and miscalculations. Now is the time for rational minds to take a step back and give Mr. Putin time to come to the same conclusion. There will be time to issue further sanctions.
                But, I ask our own incompetent president Obama to allow Mr. Putin to inhale, to clear his mind of Vodka and tobacco, and to think about how devastating the issuance of DEAD BANK LETTERS would be to his country and to Russians and socialists around the world.I would give President Putin until December 27th to comply with international law before initiating a new round of bone crushing sanctions- in the spirit of forgiveness- and in the spirit of the holidays.

                I therefore propose a joint signing of the surrender of Ukraine separatists, Russia's return of Crimea to Ukraine, an agreement by Russia to compensate Malaysian Flight MH17's victims families, Russia's return to compliance with the United Nations Charter and international law, and the United States and the European Union's agreement to deescalate the economic and political sanctions against Russia on a timetable that insures compliance with the agreements by all parties. - I know it is the holidays, but government workers can set aside a few days this week in each country to draft their respective agreements at to set December 27th at noon as the time and date in Kiev to sign each of these agreements.

                 After all, you owe it to the world to stop fighting amongst one another and to work together towards the betterment of the world as a whole- and set aside your personal desires of achievement and work towards meeting the needs and human rights of every citizen of this planet.

                                                   The Upcoming Kiev- Separatists Negotiations

                 Kiev should demand an unconditional surrender, the removal of all Russian troops, advisers, and the surrender of all Russian military weapons and equipment, and to provide for fair trials of all separatists and a sentence of ten years or a lifetime of exile in Russia. The separatists should be given the choice as to where they will serve their time for the crime of sedition and treason.

                 For those who committed burglaries, rapes, murders of civilians, and other crimes, a war crimes tribunal should be established to mete out punishments including lifetime exile and even death. Unfortunately, some soldiers and some citizens overstepped the bounds of human decency and even overstepped the Geneva Convention and the United Nations human rights resolutions on the treatment of non-combatants in a war zone. Both sides of this unfortunate war, which was instigated by President Putin are guilty of these atrocities, and the soldiers of both sides must be held accountable for their actions.

                  A reparations process must be established to rebuild what was once the homes and businesses of civilians so that the country can begin to heal. Many civilian lives have been unnecessarily taken by the fighting by both sides.

                 It will take time for the healing process, but it needs to begin this year. I advise that both sides meet on Christmas Day, without Russia diplomats present or even being invited, as this war was illegally begun by Russia and will continue if Russia is permitted to be a part of the negotiations.

                 All territory must be returned, all cities, all towns, villages, and all arms laid down by the separatists by December 31, 2014 at 12:midnight Kiev time. All separatist soldiers desiring to leave Ukraine should be permitted to leave once they turn in their weapons and armaments and have signed a voluntary lifetime exile agreement certifying that they will never apply for a visa to enter Ukraine and that they agree to forfeit all assets they presently hold or have held in Ukraine on or after November 14, 2013  (notice the dates), whether said property was legally held or illegally obtained during the incursion (war) sic.

                 Separatists should be permitted to move their families with them into Russia if those family members also agree to the terms of forfeiture of all assets except the clothes on their backs.

                 A ten mile non-aggression zone should be established between Russia and Ukraine if and when Crimea is returned to Ukraine.

                The citizenship of all Crimeans that voted in favor of Russian stateship of Crimeas should have their citizenship of Ukraine revoked and their property rights to any assets they have held or hold in any part of the world seized and forwarded to Kiev to assist in the payment of reparations as such vote was an act of treason against Ukraine. Once Crimea is returned to Ukraine, these treasonous citizens should be permitted to enter Russia to live in exile- since they love the Russian way of life so much.

What the World Needs Russia To Do By The End of 2014

              While Mr. Putin and Mr. Lavrov continue to defend the illegal seizure of Crimea- which is still under international law part of Ukraine, the supplying of arms to eastern Ukraine separatists- some of which were used to murder the crew and passengers of Malaysia Flight MH 17, the illegal border invasions of Ukraine, and the threatening of a nuclear war against the world- the rest of the world sees Russia as a threat to world peace and world economic stability.
               We here at The Winkle Institute find Russia's actions to be in violation of the United Nations Charter, and call for the United Nations to issue a RESOLUTION declaring Russia's actions to be a violation of international law.

                The sanctions which Mr. Putin and Mr. Lavrov have been gripping about were proposed by our founder and were provided as leverage to get Russia's attention. Obviously, under the strain of a collapsing economy, and thus a general collapsing of political support for Vladimir Putin's continued presidency, Russian citizens are bristling against the 9 plus % inflation that is and will continue to rise as long as Russia hold Crimea hostage.

                 Russia holds the keys to its own economic salvation in its hands. It can return Crimea back to Ukraine and make economic reparations; it can make economic reparations to the families of the crew and passengers of Malaysia Flight MH17, it can compensate Ukraine for the damage that its troops, advisers, and weapons supplied to the separatists have caused to Ukraine, and it can publicly and humbly apologize for its failure to abide by international law.

                All past sins and threats will be forgiven, all sanctions will be dropped. Russia can then return to its former place in the world as an economic and political partner that strives for democracy, equality, human rights, and as an oppressor of the rights and freedoms of its own citizens used to enjoy before Vladimr Putin declared himself dictator for life.

                Has anyone else noticed the drastic decline in Russia, its economy, it political base, its desperate diplomatic corps and its depressed and forlorn presidency? Can Russia be any more closer to self-destructing that it has ever been at any point in history.

                 I mean, to illegally seize part of another country because they would not join your corrupt economic union - how absurd is that? How mentally and emotionally unstable do you have to be to think that the rest of the world would tolerate such barbaric behavior?

                 While we here at The Winkle Institute are obviously no friends of Ms. Merkel, we have advised the European Union, the United States, the United Nations, and numerous countries and their politicians to impose sanctions against Russia for its illegal acts against the United Nations Charter and international law.

                 We stand behind the sovereign nation of Ukraine and its citizens- even those held captive by Russia in Crimea- who we pray for daily. They have the right to freely leave Crimea at any time- which has been denied to them by the criminal nation of Russia- and I say, criminal nation- because it continues to violate international law day after day.

                  We applaud the actions of the United States, the European Union, NATO, and Ukraine for standing up to the tyrant Putin and his lapdog Lavrov.

                  We continue to ask the European Union to consolidate under one constitution, one treasury, one currency, one banking system, one parliament, and one national government. Each state can have its own government, but the central authority would reside in Belgium. All banking would be moved to Brussells, Belgium as well. This would provide for economic stability of all of Europe.

A Christmas Present For Eritrea: God Speaking to Eritrea's President Isaias Afworki, "LET MY PEOPLE GO!"

           In a small despotic country named Eritrea, which sits on the western edge of the Red Sea, I ask almighty God to step in a remove the dictator Isaias Afworki, and to let loose seven plagues upon Eritrea until this modern day Pharaoh surrenders his country to its citizens.
           If Moses were alive today, he would be in a steel shipping container sitting in a prison camp for rising up against a tyrannical despot. The population of Eritrea is 60% youth aged 1-24 years old. The average life span is 60 years old. In a country of only 6 million people, whose population is declining every year, 50% of children live in poverty. 
           The country is a desert hell hole. The lack of freedoms that these people endure at the hands of Afworki, the imprisonment of all dissenters including the press, the starving of his country's children, the enslavement of minors into conscripted military service, the selling of children into slave trafficking and sex trafficking to other countries in the immoral Middle East, the complete disregard for human rights and the disregard for the freedoms and liberties that were given the citizens of Eritrea by God Almighty and then by the United Nations in 1993. 
            I ask you to join me in asking God to strike down this despot as he did Muammar Gaddafi, and to turn his soul inside out until he acknowledges you to be his Lord and Saviour and repents of his evil life and releases all captives from their prisons and steel shipping crates, disbands his corrupt government, and surrenders his country to God so that democracy can grow and democratic elections can be held next year. 

This is what has happened to Freedom of Speech in Eritrea over   the past ten years...

Won't you intervene on their behalf? Will you hold Eritrea's president accountable for his many Human Rights Violations? Say you will, and give Eritrea the best Christmas present that you could ever give them- freedom and democracy.

Only then can Eritrea  become economically stable.

Please contact your fellow politicians and Human Rights advocates in Africa, the Middle East, and the European Union. Remove this despot from his abusive seat of power and return this once Godly nation back to its citizens.

Thank you and Have Yourself a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

It Appears That Vladimir Putin Does Want to Start WWIII- Time For Dead Bank Letters

               With the recent escalation in Ukraine by Russian military units, the repeated invasion of Ukraine's sovereign lands, the failure of Russia to enforce the cease fire it negotiated on behalf of the separatists, the recent illegal elections in eastern Ukraine, the submarine testing of an ICBM, the continued fly bys of Russia jets near NATO countries, and the thumbing of his ever lengthening nose by Russia's President Vladimir Putin, it appears that he is trying to provoke NATO and the United States into WWIII.
                Putin has on two previous occasions hinted at his country's nuclear power. He was not taken seriously. As he was not taken seriously, he has further provoked the sleeping dogs of the nuclear arsenals around the world.
                As Putin continues to threaten the rest of the world with nuclear war, he takes another step closer to being declared a war criminal. His country's economy is at an all time low. The ruble is collapsing under the weight of the sanctions which I have previously advised be put into place. But, Putin fiddles as Moscow and Russia sinks into economic hell, as Nero did with Rome. Both megalomaniacs are in their own personal hells and will remain there until they choose to treat their fellow man with respect and dignity. This is a self-fulfilling prophecy.
                 Rumors that Putin suffers from Pancreatic cancer or any other diseases add to the possibility of Putin's self destructive actions of late. Instead of negotiating in good faith, Putin offered a ceasefire, but the Ukraine separatists refused to honor it. It is clear that they choose annihilation over being civilized human beings and members of a decent society.
                  As a result, I must once again request that Dead Bank Letters be initiated against all banks in Russia as of Monday to further isolate the economic damage being caused by Mr. Putin and his military. The war ships under contract by France must not be delivered, and the seller must cancel the contract and find another buyer. It is my fear that these war ships would be used against NATO forces if they are delivered.
                  It is unfortunate that Mr. Putin has refused the conditions kindly extended to him in my letter of last month, delivered to his UN Ambassador, which set out the terms where sanctions would gradually be removed. Instead of taking the appropriate actions to comply with international law, Putin has continued to flout his country's military might as its economy sinks lower into the abyss. Great leaders negotiate in good faith and keep their promises made during those negotiations. Obviously, Putin's actions demonstrate that he is not a great leader by any means. Russia would do itself a great service if he was removed from office in the immediate future.

Ukraine-Russian-United States- European Union Talks-- My Advice

 In a recent letter to President Vladimir Putin I offered to recommend gradually scaling back sanctions in exchange for good behavior of Russia and a return to compliance with international law, which includes the return of Crimea to Ukraine.

Here is a copy of that letter. I hope this will make your negotiations later this week go more smoothly. Mr. Putin is hard pressed to make a deal while saving face with his countrymen lest they publicly hang him in the Red Square.

Dear President Vladimir Putin, 13 October 2014

I am writing you today in hopes that we can reach a meeting of the minds concerning the deescaltion of hostilities between the European Union, the United States, Russia and Ukraine as well as other former Soviet states that Russia has recently threatened.
As a consultant I take no sides of an issue, but judge the matter solely on the truth of the issues before me and offer suggestions and advice as to possible outcomes that are advantageous to everyone concerned.
You have made many statements concerning the fact that you desire Russia to re-unite to its former greatness. That former alleged greatness was due to the conquering of sovereign nations and the murder of civilians by former Soviet presidents. Obviously, the world politic is not going to allow that to happen. I understand your frustration in Ukraine not joining the Eurasia Economic Union, but illegally invading Crimea and essentially holding hostage millions of non-Russian speaking people against their will contravenes any claim of human rights violations of Russia speaking citizens of Ukraine, which is a sovereign nation.
In response to the international outcry, I took it upon myself to research your agreement (behind closed door agreements) made between yourself and Viktor Yanukovich. Obviously threats had been made against Ukraine at that time as well and Mr. Yanukovich was to be handsomely paid for his treasonous actions against his countrymen.
I recommended the economic sanctions against your country, but not against the political friends of your oligarchy. Those sanctions were devised at the national level without consultation with me or with my knowledge. Thus, Russia finds its economy spirally ever downward until you agree to bring Russia back into compliance with international law.
No one has asked me to write to you or to offer you a way out of the hell that you have visited upon your country. I am taking this initiative on my own in the attempt to help you reach the rational decisions that need to be made to prevent further unnecessary deaths on both sides of the borders of Russia. I know your heart.
I have studied people for many years. As a former outreach minister I have traveled in excess of 1 ½ million miles working and helping people create better lives out of their quandries that were self created.
In retalition for Ukraine following my advice to the European Union and seeking to join a forming “true democracy” you invaded Crimea and have held hostage millions of innocent people who only want to live in peace. Your invasion was not rational, but was instead the actions of a bully who is used to getting his way through threats and intimidation. You rigged the election results of the secession vote to make it seem like most of the Crimeans wanted to rejoin Russia. The truth is that their actions are only survivalist in nature under the threat of a gun. Crimeans want to be citizens of a state of Ukraine. They want to have a say in their choices. They do not want to be Russian, despite your forcing them to. Given the choice to return to Ukraine or remaining Russia under your rule, their choice would be to return to be citizens of Ukraine. Even you know this to be true.
You then set out to further interfere in the internal government decisions in eastern Ukraine by placing agents and soldiers illegally inside eastern Ukraine and funding a rebellion by the citizens of eastern Ukraine in violation of the United Nations Charter and international law.
You then issued orders for Russian troops to use military weapons and missiles against Ukraine national troops from within Russia and supplied the eastern Ukraine separatists with weapons, food, vehicles, and armaments which they used to illegally shoot down Malaysian Flight MH 17, which they mistook as a Ukraine fighter plane.
You then ordered Russian troops to illegally transport troops across Ukraine's borders, albeit with food and medical supplies, and removed damaged military equipment in a cover up attempt of your country's military assistance of an illegal rebellion by Ukraine separatists. You have also encouraged Russian citizens to illegally enter Ukraine and to fight on behalf of the eastern Ukraine separatists. All of these actions have been taken because you did not get your way. It is as simple as that.
As a result of your actions, I advised the European Union and the United States to impose far more draconian sanctions than they have yet to impose as of this writing. They have been far gentler with you than I would have been. Be that as it may, I believe that there is an opportunity for us to have a meeting of the minds and to pave a way for Russia to return to being a country in compliance with international law and the United Nations Charter.
While Russia has control of Crimea, there will be no peace between the European Union, NATO, the United States and Russia. Russia will continue to be isolated economically. The best thing that I can suggest is that you allow Crimea to return to Ukraine's authority, remove your troops, and move your naval fleet out of Sevastopol and onto Russian soil. Allow Ukraine to set the timetable for Crimea to become autonomous.
Second, remove all Russian troops, military equipment, advisers, and electronic eavesdropping (spy) equipment from Crimea and eastern Ukraine by the end of November 2014.
Third, make reparation payments to Ukraine for the economic losses that your actions and the actions of your country's citizens and soldiers have caused.
Fourth, make reparation payments to the families of the Malaysian MH17 crash victims. It was a Russian missile that caused the plane to crash. Regardless of who fired it from the separatist' camps, they would not have had the weapons if Russia had not provided them.
Fifth, apologize to the world personally for invading Ukraine and for bringing the world close to World War III and promise to never invade another sovereign country or to threaten hostilities against another country unless Russia itself is being threatened.
Sixth, stop supplying weapons and chemical weapons of mass destruction to Syria, Iraq, Iran, and other countries. Russia is supposed to lead by example. If Russia ever wants to be counted again as a super power then it needs to stop bullying other nations when it does not get what it wants. I know, other nations do the same thing, but we re not talking about them, are we?
Seventh, stop spying on your own citizens and allow Russians the opportunity to address their concerns about the political and human rights issues that have caused so many of your citizens to leave the country. Communication clears the air and will help resolve the internal conflicts within Russia.
If you do these seven things and do not start or increase any conflicts around the world, I will recommend that the sanctions that have been imposed be gradually reduced in exchange for the completion of each step until Russia is once more in compliance with international law and the United Nations Charter.

 As to the Ukraine- Russian Gas Deal

What about Russia paying for all the damage that their interference did to eastern Ukraine? Who pays for that Mr. Putin? I believe that Russia should pay for the rebuilding of these villages and cities as they instigated the war and supplied the weapons to the separatists. Russia also needs to make reparations for the illegal seizing of Crimea, the rape, robbery, and looting of eastern Ukraine, the innocent civilians killed by Russia tanks, missiles, and mortars as well as the downing of Malaysia Flight MH17. Ukraine should get FREE Natural Gas from Russia for the next 20 years for damages caused by Russia.

The Current State of the World's Economies- October 2014

              Here is the current state of the world's economies by region-

             The Americas: The Americas including the United States, Canada, and Mexico currently rate a 6.7 on a scale of 10. Canada's economy is stabilizing, Mexico's economy is gradually ebbing lower and will continue to ebb lower until corruption, the illegal drug trade, and human trafficking are substantially reduced. Currently Mexico's largest export is Oil. Mexico's second largest export is illegal immigrants, and it's third largest export is illegal drugs, and taking fourth place in human trafficking.
               As for Canada, its largest export is oil, unfortunately that oil comes with the price of contaminating Alberta and Saskatchewan's wilderness. Fracking is messy as is everything to do with the oil and gas industry. Canada needs to clean up its act to become a world player.
               As for the United States,  currently, the United States economy in an extremely slow recovery that is based solely on the psychology and the fears of it own citizens. A rush for the exits could collapse the entire fruit basket. The United States economy is a fabricated economy, its economic numbers and employment numbers bear no relevance to the truth. Every fact quoted by a government agency is an outright lie that is meant to soothe the guilt of the masses. This Holiday Shopping season will be brutally honest about the United States economy.
               South America's economy is running on three cylinders and is largely funded by the United States and Europe. As the European economy  slowly improves, the economies of South America will continue to improve. Do not listen to the continuous chimes of the gloom and doomsayer's bells. Their bell is cracked and plays only one note - dooooooom!

Europe- As Europe begins to take its banking industry in hand, there will be those bankers in Germany and elsewhere that will try to wrest control of the entire continent's economy for their own financial welfare and benefit. England's economy is recovering nicely, and the slow growth in the European Union's economy is due to the failure of the major banks to make small business loans as they were requested to by the ECB this summer. It seems that Germany's continued interference in the economies of the other 27 EU countries has become troublesome. It appears that Der Deutschebanke which backs the German currency wants to be in control of the EU economy and is trying to obstruct any economic growth through subterfuge. While the austerity program that I instigated in 2011 has been a great success, to save the EU's economies, we must provide cash flow to small business growth for jobs to return to the EU. While a 30 hour work week will have a positive economic influence short term, increasing the number of jobs, for there to be long term economic growth and stability, there must be a flurry of creation of jobs to start the economic engine.
Germany's economists know this to be true, but would rather choke out any economic growth of the other 27 member nations than to permit them to become less reliant on Germany for their goods and services.

Asia- China' economy is tanking, as is Russia's. Their recent economic partnership should prove interesting as one drowning rat feeds off of the other in the attempt to become the largest failed economic system country in the world. Both countries are trying to create a socialist free enterprise system where the government decides whose business is successful and whose business fails. China has tried to master this kind of failing economy since the 1950's to little success.

As a result of their continuing reliance on oil and purchases from the United States, when the United State's economy began to founder, China's economy hit the brakes. China can print money until the cows come home. It is worthless money based on nothing but the trade agreements between China and the United States. Russia will never replace the United States in China's purse as their main benefactor and customer.

Until Russia complies with international law and stops creating unrest in northern Europe and Asia, Russia's economy will continue to decline despite China's purchases of goods. Trust cannot be bought at any price and Russia and China do not trust one another. 

Japan- As Japan continues to founder on the rocks as it recovers from recent weather events, Japan needs to look elsewhere for energy production other than nuclear energy. Additionally, Japan needs to formulate a long term recovery program which provides education and skilled labor to be outsourced throughout the rest of the world. Instead of wasting money creating robots, Japan could develop safe alternatives to nuclear energy that could be used ala Tesla to reduce the world's dependence on fossil fuels.

Africa- As the Africa countries continue to expand their oil and gas production, they also need to look to remove the human rights violators and develop clean water supplies as well as least footprint technology to produce crops (non-GMO) to feed their growing population. Africa could also use educational services and birth control/ STD prevention education or sterilization of infected persons. Africa' greatest economic deficit is their gross lack of education, clean water, and a dependence n backwards tribal instincts and culture that leads to warfare.

Australia- Australia's economy is slowing down, but not as much as the rest of the world's. Australia will do well to find alternative sources of energy and to develop desalinization plant to keep a continued supply of clean water as well as protecting the environment from becoming contaminated.

The Middle East- Unfortunately, the Middle East remains an economic quagmire as a result of Islamic nation's attempts to out Israel and Christian nations out of the region. This battle needs to end for there to be any hope of long term economic stability. An international meeting of Islamic Imams is being called to reign in extra political Islamic factions that are causing economic and political unrest. It is my belief that ISIS is being funded by Russia and also from within the United States via corporations whose sole interest is keeping the region politically unstable and thus economically unstable.

Obviously, I have not named the smaller countries as these smaller countries tend to ebb and flow with the tide of their economical benefactor countries.

Time to Step Back And Think About What Could Happen If......

              Let us take a big step back from struggling against the universe and one another for a full hour or at least twice as long as it takes you to read this, digest it, and email it to those you care about and even share it with your boss if you so choose to:

What could happen if  Russia made peace with the world and stopped instigating trouble throughout the world along with the United States and England?

And then, what would happen if.......

a. We wipe out ISIS? There will still be instability in Egypt, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Nigeria, the Congo, Saudi Arabia, and Boko Haram will still be causing trouble.

So, why not have an international meeting of Imams from around the world and let them decide if Islam is to outlawed as a religion, or do they get the crazies in hand, and start practicing what the Quran preaches?

b. The United States once more passes a balanced budget act and actually reduced the national debt saving the United States from the humiliation of being the most bankrupt nation in the world?

We came close to having a balanced budget when Bill Clinton was in office. Why not try it a second time? We could cut the fat (non-essential government employees) and give them buyouts like GM and Ford did their over bloated staff, say six months severance pay and push them out of the office window. Wouldn't that be fun?

c. We wiped out Boko Haram, returned all the kidnapped people to their families and return Africa to near peace. Then we could work on South Sudan and get it right this time.

Boko Haram cannot be that difficult to find and eliminate. While they are a guerrilla fighting group, the United States, and the European Union have the technology to find them using satellite telemetry and night vision heat signatures. A group that large would be difficult to hide. Now, if we don't find them, we have no right to say that the United States military is the best in the world. I know that if my kids when they were younger could find a nickel under all of their toys and carpeting in their rooms, that the modern militaries around the world can find a radical nut job religious group whose leader thinks he is God. Seriously, this guy is hard to find?

d. We stop fighting each other in the Middle East altogether and work out a one hundred year plan of peace?

In one hundred years, the wars could start again and a new peace plan could be drawn up. We won't be here, so why should we care. Let our grandchildren argue over our inheritance and do what they want with our toys (if the toys are still around).

e. Why not provide food, clothing, shelter, and clean water to everyone on the planet?

We have the technology. Instead of wasting research dollars inventing stupid robots, why not really make this world a better place for every person on the planet to live? We have the intelligence, we have the people, we have the science, we have the water and energy sources to make it possible. It's not like an alien planet is going to invade Earth and take over. Who would want a bunch of spoiled people anyway.

f. Why not make slavery a crime punishable by death? One appeal in the first six months of imprisonment and then we remove them from the population altogether.

It matters not whether or not their slavery is human bondage, sex slavery, prostitution, or indentured servitude (like Disney's hotel laundry room workers in Florida). Slavery is slavery, no matter what label you put on it.  The taking of another person's freedom, takes that person's life away from them.

That is why the United Nations needs to pass the United Nations Resolution that this organization submitted to four different UN Committees back in February of this year making human trafficking and slavery a violation of international law punishable and enforceable in whatever country that the criminal was captured in regardless of where the crime was committed.  It also provides witness protection, counseling, and recovery to the victims of these crimes.

g. Why not do something nice for someone today?

It will make you feel better. It will also reduce your stress levels and help you cope with stress better in the future.

Why the United States Economy is Nearer to a Full Blown Collapse Since 2008 Than Ever

Why the United States Economy is Nearer to a Full Blown Collapse Since 2008 Than Ever

Those of you who have been following my posts over the past three years know that I diligently research everything to the Nth degree. This post is no different. Therefore, it will be no surprise that it might be suppressed.

Despite the FAKE UNEMPLOYMENT NUMBERS submitted by the US Dept.of Labor Bureau of Statistics which said that the United States economy and jobs are moving forward, the true story is much dimmer. In reality, the world's largest economy is closer to a collapse than it ever has been.
If it were not for the worthless loans to banks in 2008 and 2009 as part of TARP we would have realized just how bad the economy was much sooner and could have drafted plans to redirect the economy and the country on a path to recovery. Unfortunately, the United States Federal Reserve's main focus is and was maintaining the 1%'s position in the world and the United States as the world's currency base.
The quantitative easing employed by the United States Federal Reserve which bought up to nearly 75% of stocks and bonds on the markets, falsely increasing the confidence and the prices of stocks and bonds of American companies and institutions. As the Federal Reserve pulls back, it is still leveraged a staggering 39 to 1 of its assets. The United States Federal Reserve has never in its history been over leveraged to this extent.
The printing of worthless currency is only thinly supported by fabricated new stories like the above "jobs increase" and the falsely reported unemployment rate. The actual unemployment rate is near 26% across the entire United States when combined with the number of people who have run out of unemployment benefits or who have taken part time lower paying jobs. The number of full time jobs has significantly decreased.  Additionally, millions have lost their homes, their businesses, and their cars in addition to their jobs. The government and the Federal Reserve have done nothing to alleviate these losses.  All they have done is support the elite.   
In fact, the absolute failure of the Obama administration to place moratoriums on evictions and foreclosures has resulted in nearly 20 million people being homeless or living with family members or friends in the United States according to the National Alliance to End Homelessness' 2014 report. "Nationwide emergency shelter usage has been steady at close to 100 percent from 2007 to 2013. Transitional housing usage is lower, fluctuating between 83 and  8 9 percent between 2007 and 2013". The report continues by stating that "The overall economy is starting to recover, but this improvement does not appear t o be penetrating lower–income populations. The pool of people at risk of homelessness, those in poverty, those living with friends and family, and those paying over half of their income for housing, has remained high despite improvements in unemployment and the overall economy.
The homeless assistance system has decreased homelessness by increasing the flow of people
experiencing homelessness into permanent housing, but without a decrease in the number of people who become homeless, the homeless assistance system will continue to manage large numbers of households who are simply unable t o afford housing in their communities. The lack of affordable housing cannot be overcome by the homeless assistance system."

Foreclosure Filings
Home Repossessions






Sources: Realty Trac, Equifax, US Federal Reserve

Using the numbers in the chart, a total of 17, 909,956 homes were foreclosed on between 2008 and the end of 2013. Multiplying that number by the average number of persons per household (2.61) (  according to the 2010 US Census  and you get the staggering number of 46,744,985 people that were forced out of their homes by the greed of bankers, corporations, and politicians in the United States from 2008-2014. Essentially, 14- 16 % of the United States population lost their homes from 2008-2014.
In Las Vegas, Nevada over 45,000 people were homeless. In Washington D.C. the nation's capital approximately 8,000 people are homeless at any time.

There is no more middle class in the United States. There is the upper income class and the "bearing hanging on by their fingertips to survival class." The American dream of a wife, 2.3 children, and a home is out of reach for 75% or greater of Americans with no decrease in these numbers seen in the future. The public confidence in the United States government officials is at its lowest in more than a hundred years.
The infrastructure of the United States is gradually collapsing as roads, streets, and highways go unrepaired. Trust in government officials and agencies is also at an all time low as regulations like Obamacare and new Environmental Protection Agency regulations further strangle any economic progress that industry and free trade might eke out over the next few years.
The only high point in the United States economy is its wasteful military spending and intervening in military actions by ISIS, Ukraine, Afghanistan, Syria, and Egypt. If the United States wasted less money on building weapons of mass destruction, supporting non-essential military staff, and black operations programs and provided food, shelter, free college education, job training, and small business loans to those in need of employment, the United States just might survive. The student loan default rate is at it highest since the inception of the program while the United States spends billions on new bombs, jets, surveillance of its own citizens, intrudes and spies on other nations, and destabilizes the economies of the entire world through its wasteful habits.
Unfortunately, because our president is one of the most self-aggrandizing mirror watching, camera clutching presidents in history, he is worthless as a leader. Our congress and senators only care about raising money for their next election and  keeping their campaign donors happy by passing pork barrel legislation. As a result, no legislation has been passed that undoes or improves the economic demise that we now face and will continue to face.
While it is true that 70% of our United States Treasury debt is owed to our citizens, state governments, and other federal government agencies, the remaining 30% bears interest that can never be repaid. The United States ECONOMY IS A HOUSE OF CARDS THAT CAN COLLAPSE IN A MOMENT'S NOTICE.  The band is still playing while the ship of the United States sinks into economic oblivion. It is only a matter of time before the life vests are handed out. That is why the United States government keeps telling lies abut the economy. If people knew how bad the economy really is their would be an overthrow of our government within weeks with tens of millions of people taking over Washington D.C. while our politician hide in their nuclear bunkers.
Therefore, I encourage the world's leaders to convene this year to remove the United States as the benchmark currency and adopt The Time Exchange: A Non-Monetary Economic System, or other economic eqality creating mechanism which will provide economic equality and will permit every citizen to contribute to the world's society on equal footing and to also benefit from society equally as well, before this economic house of cards collapses. Adopting the Yuan or creating a world currency will only speed the decline of the world's society. A one world government is fine as long as the wealthy are not part of the government and must contribute equally to society through their work effort (sweat equity) to survive.

Where is the United Nations Leadership?

Where is the United Nations Leadership? 

           As battles rage around the planet the United Nations leaders stand idly by and watch the bonfires of hate grow. Instead of punishing Russia for its invasion and occupation of Crimea, the United Nations Security Council does nothing.
           Instead of intervening in Russia's incursions into Ukraine, the United Nations did nothing as did NATO. At least NATO held war games and thumped its chest a few times. Other than that, these two incompetent bodies of world governance have done nothing.
           Instead of sending UN troops to reign in Boko Haram in Africa, the United Nations wrings its hands and asks politely, "Please don't do that!" Instead of intervening in South Sudan's civil war, the United Nations sits on its hands. Instead of adopting the Human Rights resolution 2014 A on Human Trafficking, it sits on a shelf in five committee rooms or was thrown in the trash.
           It is well known that poor leadership in the United Nations has caused the oligarchies of the world to increase their power by taking the rights, liberties, and freedoms from their citizens while the United Nations ambassadors stand and watch the sunset with a drink in one hand and a cigarette in the other.
           Not since the days of Idi Amin and the atrocities in Africa and the Baltics has the United Nations been so incompetently and uncaringly staffed. The genocide that is ongoing in Nigeria and in the Congo Republic could easily be defeated if their were men with balls in the United Nations. But the United Nations has become a country club for the politically incompetent.
           It refuses to sanction Russia for fear that the rest of the world cannot defeat one man with Syphillis who wants to relive Lenin's worst nightmares and revisit them on the world again. It openly permits the enslavement of people by the wealthy landowners and corportions around the world who could provide safe work conditions, safe housing, clean water, reduced crime, religious equality, protection for crime witnesses, and a host of other human rights if the good old boys could only get a hard on for helping their fellow man and woman.
            In a few recent tweets to Emma Watson I cautioned her that the United Nations was a two faced quagmire where nothing was ever accomplished unless the oligarchies deemed it necessary. It is the United Nations own contractors, peacekeepers, and military troops that protect the majority of human traffickers around the world. From Dyna Corp. to eastern Europe the human traffickers know that the United Nations has turned a blind eye to their crimes and even provides immunity for war crimes committed while they are under United Nations contracts.
            The United Nations' own devaluation of women based on their economic impact and their roles in society have caused the current human trafficking and sex trafficking debacle. Their is not United Nations mandate, no enforced international law that has teeth, no law that covers both the victim's rights and prosecutes the criminal regardless of where they are arrested and regardless of where the crime was committed.
           The United Nations Human Rights Resolution 2014 A that was submitted to five different United Nations committees in February of this year has yet to be adopted and put into force.

           So tell me, where do I go to find leaders with courage to fight the good fight in this day and age on this planet?  I have looked all around me and have contacted over 100 world leaders and their staff members through my advisories and I find that few of them can be counted on to make the tough decisions when the time comes to stand up for truth, honor, righteousness, and the rights of their fellow man. It makes me wonder if the leaders we currently have in this world would be better clothed in dresses and girdles than long pants, suit, and ties.

            We stand on the threshold of a potential war with Russia, China, and Islamic radicals, each who deserve the title of terrorist - and the United Nations mumbles like an old woman and hides under the covers and prays for the dawn of a new day instead of imposing world order through leadership and international law.
            The United Nations stands idly by while the privacy of innocent citizens is taken from them by force. It stands idly by while nations governments seize the basic human rights granted to them under the United Nations charter. It stands idly by while the Internet access of billions of people and the press organizations in numerous countries are under seizure and attack by the governments around the world.

            So, I ask you one more time- Where is the United Nations Leadership in this divided world?

Islamic Jihad and Fundamentalism is Not About Doing Allah's Will- Here's Why

           Several years ago I was conducting research back to 300 B.C. to locate historical facts (at least what has been recovered). I researched the beginning of Islam, the Pentateuch (five books of Moses as passed down over the years, but actually written approx. 150-50 B.C. by multiple authors from stories passed down over the generations. I also researched Christianity, Buddhism, Taoism, Hinduism, and other religions as well. I wanted to know what I was talking about before I wrote an authoritarian book on what people should be doing if they were fundamentalists Christians.
            Guess what? I completed the book, title Becoming a Better Christian, and submitted it to over 200 Christian literary agents. It offended everyone because it was historically and Biblically accurate. No publisher will publish it because my research indicates that Christian denominations have translated the Holy Bible to meet their own cultural and political needs and to back up the lifestyle that they want to have.
             Jesus said (in every translation), "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," and to "Love your neighbor as you you love yourself."

Nowhere in any religious text does it say that murder, lying, cheating, adultery, stealing, corruption, stoning, beating, raping, kidnapping or any other inhumane act is acceptable- not even in the Al-Quran.

Maybe the Islamic jihad's rewrote their translation of the Al-Quran to permit these abuses of their fellow man, but God (Allah) never told anyone that these atrocities were okay or that he would reward them for committing these sins.

The Islamic religion as it is presently practiced is so far out of line from the Al-Quran and Mohammed's original drug (opium addicted) hallucinations. But that does not surprise me. Religious extremists never truly believe that the religious text upon which their religion is based applies to them. They pick and choose what parts they want to follow and throw out the rest.

Take a stroll with me as we evaluate the Islamic religion (which strangely compares to radical Judaism) and is based on the Old Testament (before its bastardization by Judaic Pharisees and Sadducee's.

How many of the Old Testament's Seven Deadly Sins does the average Muslim break every day?

Let us compare the texts to the reality of everyday Muslim life:

The list of Biblical sins below are followed by a list of the Quran's listed sins. 

The Seven Sins That Are Detestable to God

Proverbs 6:16-19
“There are six things the LORD hates,
seven that are detestable to him:
haughty eyes,                                             (Pride)
a lying tongue,                                           (more pride)
hands that shed innocent blood,                  (Murder - even in times of war)
a heart that devises wicked schemes,
feet that are quick to rush into evil,
a false witness who pours out lies                 (bears false witness- lies)
and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.“

Haughty Eyes (Pride)

Haughty eyes are essentially people who look down on others.  They are full of the first sin ever recorded, before mankind was even created: Pride.  Pride was the cause of Lucifer’s fall whose name was later changed to Satan or the Devil as recorded in Ezekiel 28:17: “Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. So I threw you to the earth.“  Lucifer meant “light-bearer” because he was the greatest of all the angels God created but he became prideful and wanted to overtake the throne of God.  He was cast down and became known as Satan, which in Hebrew means adversary and ha-Satan, the accuser. The Devil’s name literally means “slanderer” in Greek.  Today, Satan is said to accuse the brethren (the church) before the throne of God day and night (Rev. 12:10).
Haughty eyes are eyes full of pride and pride is actually at the root ofall sin.  That is why it is listed first because pride is first and foremost inherent in all sin.  Haughty eyes are eyes that look condescendingly on people.  They look at others as inferior in an arrogant way and see themselves as superior to all others.  This is why God hates it.  Pride caused Satan’s fall and the Bible says, “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall” (Prov 16:18).  This is exactly what happened to Satan and what still happens to humans who boast, brag, and are arrogant.  Pride and evil are tied together in God’s eyes as it is written, “The fear of the Lord is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate” (Prov 8:13).  Pride not only comes before a fall, God hates it, because “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble” (James 4:6).

A Lying Tongue

God detests a lying tongue and in fact, all liars are destined to be cast into the lake of fire in the Second Death (Rev. 21:8).  This is the final place for the Devil and all his fallen angels (demons). This place is a place of unending, eternal torment.  Again, we go back to the first and foremost detestable thing that God hates: Pride.  When we lie, we are wanting to make ourselves look good, make excuses for our not doing the right thing, we often accuse others of something that they did not do – all in order to make us look better.  The root cause of lying and actually all sin is pride.  We deceive others but we do not deceive God who searches the heart and knows our evil intent (1 Kings 8:39, 1 Chron 28:9, etc.).
We think that little “white lies” are harmless, but a lie is a lie. It’s like someone saying that they are a little pregnant or a little dead.  They are either lying or not.  Lying hurts the person who is telling the lie but it also hurts others as Proverbs 25:18 says, “Like a club or a sword or a sharp arrow is one who gives false testimony against a neighbor.” That doesn’t sound harmless at all.  James recognizes that power of the tongue saying, “The tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell” (James 3:5-6).  Further, he says, “All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind, but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness.  Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be” (James 3:7-10).

Hands that Shed Innocent Blood

Today shedding innocent blood can involve burglaries gone bad, murders, inducing others to buy and get hooked on drugs, influencing others to drink (and then to drive), drunk drivers killing innocent victims, spousal abuse and murder, and the list goes on.  Jesus said that we commit murder in our heart if we hate someone (Matt 5:21-26).  Truly no human is innocent before God but by God saying that He abhors those who shed innocent blood He means that criminals and everyday people shed the blood of others who did not deserve to die.  God alone is the author and giver of life and only He has the right to take a life.  Here again, pride is a root cause of murder.  Anger and rage involve someone else doing something we don’t like or we want to take from others who have more than we do. James equates murder’s motives quite well in saying, “What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You want something but don’t get it. You kill and covet, but you cannot have what you want. You quarrel and fight. You do not have, because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures“(James 4:1-3).

A Hand that Devises Wicked Schemes

When a person has committed murder, involuntary manslaughter is usually a lesser of a charge that premeditated murder.  The meaning of premeditated is that the murderer planned and schemed well ahead of time before they committed the act. They predetermined ahead of time to kill someone so a person (a hand) that devises (plans ahead of time) wicked (evil) schemes (predetermining) is a person that God hates.  King David was such a man and God used Nathan to point this evil out to David.  David did repent (Psalm 51) but David schemed ahead of time about how to get rid of Uriah so that he could marry Bathsheba who was already pregnant by David in an adulterous affair.  Sadly, King David gives Uriah orders for his commander of the army, Joab.  David sent Uriah with the message to Joab, so essentially Joab carries orders to Joab for his death.  David paid dearly for this, losing his son and his marriage and family would forever be facing insurrection, family scheming, turmoil, and eventually the death of his older son Absalom.
Anyone that plans ahead of time to do evil is a hand that devises wicked schemes.  This would include burglarizing homes knowing when the occupant(s) leave, or a burglary after a store closes, sabotaging someone’s car with a bomb, waiting in a dark alley to rob someone, or stalking a woman in order to rape or kill her.  Anyone that plans ahead of time to do harm or evil to someone is a person that God is personally opposed to and everyone someday will give an account for every evil deed they do in their lifetime (Matt 12:36, Rom 2:6).  For those who are born-again, they have already had their judgment and have been declared innocent due to Christ’s atoning sacrifice.  God sees them as having Jesus’ righteousness imputed to them.  Those who have not believed in Jesus Christ and trusted Him as their Lord and Savior will face the Great White Throne Judgment  and give an account for all their lifetime deeds (Rev 20).

Feet that are Quick to Rush into Evil

This is a person that easily agrees to take part in an evil deed with others or to make a quick decision to do something harmful to another person. If their feet are quick to run into evil, they are already predisposed, or already of a mind to want to rob, murder, hurt, lie, or cheat others.  They don’t have to think about it.  They instantly run to do something where they see an easy opportunity.  They quickly jump to their feet to take advantage of someone in a vulnerable position, like someone leaving their purse on a restaurant table or finding someone’s wallet on the floor and rushing to pick it up and quickly taking it for themselves.
A person that doesn’t even have to think about doing something wrong is always quick to do it. They rush ahead, not even thinking of the consequences, so they are likely not a Christian and they have no conviction from the Holy Spirit about thinking twice about it.  Their only goal is easy money or an easy target.  They don’t stop and ponder about it – they run swiftly to take advantage of a situation.  The human heart, without the Holy Spirit, is desperately wicked and thinks nothing of jumping at the chance to do something wrong (Jer 17:9).  A Christian has to battle their conscience because God’s Spirit is restraining their behavior and making them think about the consequences first tends to not jump at the chance to do something that they know is inherently wrong.

A False Witness Who Pours Out Lies

Once again, we go back to the root of all sin:  Pride.  A prideful person is quick to lie about others in order to make themselves look better.  If they accuse others falsely, they can blame others for something they did or something that they should have done.  I have heard this occur many times in the workplace.  Some will constantly be blaming others at work for their own lack of responsibility.  When things go wrong, they are always quick to point the finger.  It is what one co-worker of mine said: “They threw me under the bus.”  This means that they got blamed for something that they did not do and they were not responsible for in order for the lying person to look like a better worker.  They fail to shoulder the blame for something that they should have done or actually did do in order to accuse an innocent person who is not present to defend themselves.  This type of behavior is extremely harmful for company morale and lowers the dignity of fellow human beings.
A false witness will lie in court, perhaps even at the risk of perjury, just to get out of a crime that they committed, while assessing the blame on an innocent party.  A person who “pours out lies” loses all credibility in time and eventually, people will tend to not believe anything they say.  Lies catch up with a person because they have to speak other lies to cover up the first one and many times they become so entrapped by their many lies that they become like a fly ensnared in a web.  Their web gets so tangled up with their many lies that they often forget them all and it comes back to hurt them.

A Person Who Stirs up Conflict

This last but not least sin is one that has divided many churches. Gossip is one way to stir up conflict and divide even the closest of friends.  A person who stirs up this conflict is like a person who throws gas on a fire that others are trying to put out.  Its like dragging up old issues that might have been resolved but a person stirs up the issue over and over again.  When they are constantly stirring it up, like coals of a fire, it becomes hotter and hotter, and eventually erupts into a bonfire.  The person who is continually stirring up conflict is also a person who is full of pride.  They want others to have conflict so that they are considered to be a person above reproach.  They might say that at least they are not having conflict but in reality, they are doing nothing to settle it but doing everything to increase it.
Paul had many problems with the churches in this area and a person who stirred up conflicts would have been disfellowshipped because they are dividing the church – the Body of Christ – and this is a serious sin to Jesus Who is the Head of the church.  It only takes a small amount of stirring to get a fire started again and Paul had no small conflicts going on in the Corinthian church due to conflict.  The King James Version states it as “he that sows discord among brethren” so the sin in this verse seems to be talking precisely about the congregation or in the Old Testament, the community – in either case it is equally harmful (Prov 6:19).  When there is division in the church as there was in the Corinthian church (1 Cor 12, 13), then the cause of Christ and His witness is hurt and God will not leave those who are responsible without discipline.  Again, this sin is rooted in pride because no one gossips to help another or stirs up conflict to make others look good.  When we stir up conflict, we want to make ourselves look better in comparison.
Pride is at the root of all sin, but when pride comes, so eventually does the person’s fall and it can be swift and painful.  Jesus is the Head of the church and He will not allow the leavening of sin to permeate through the church to do the Bride of Christ harm.  Just as pride caused Satan’s fall, it can cause a believer’s fall too.  It was the first sin in the history of God’s creation and it is still at the root of all sin today and that is why it is listed first in the seven deadly sins.  May it not even be named among those of the children of God.

Quran's List of Sins
The seven major sins in Islam are as follows:
  1. associating anything with Allah           (comparing anything as being equal to God) -"Thou shalt not have any other Gods before me."  Sound familiar?

  3. killing one whom Allah has declared inviolate without a just case(Thou shalt not kill)                      Sound familiar? 
  4. consuming the property of an orphan, (Thou shalt not steal) Sound familiar?
  5. devouring usury,    (you shall not covet) Sound familiar? 
  6. turning back when the army (evil) advances, and
  7. false accusation of chaste women who are believers but indiscreet. (Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor). Sound familiar?
  • Lying - root of sins
  • Obscenity - Not controlling the tongue - A huge amount of the sins are from the tongue. It involves back-biting, slandering, lying (similar to above), obscenity, foul language, insulting, etc

So you see- Islamic Jihad is not about religious dictates or abiding by the writings of the Quran any more than the Crusades was about the writings of the Holy Bible. 

Both of these atrocitie are about wealth and power- GREED, and nothing else. You are in charge and I want to be- you have what I want and I will take it from you.

Basic human instincts since Adam and Eve.

You see, Mohammed studied under the Coptic Christians in Egypt who often visited him and took what he wanted out of the Holy Bible and left the rest- as most people do. 

Mohammed was no more a prophet than Sadaam Hussein was.  God speaks to everyone if they will listen, but that does not make them a prophet or a religious leader. 

Islam is no more than a derivative Judaistic cult that has intentionally mistranslated the Pentateuch to provide the clerics power and leverage over the masses of sheep.
