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? 
  2. witchcraft (No graven images!) 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
  • Alcoholism and intoxication. - mother of evil. Handiwork of Devil. Al-Quran, 5:90
  • Gambling - Handiwork of Devil. Al-Quran, 5:90
  • Dedication of stones - Handiwork of Devil. Al-Quran, 5:90
  • Divination of arrows - Handiwork of Devil. Al-Quran, 5:90

The 10 Commandments given to Moses

  1. You shall have no other gods before Me.
  2. You shall not make idols.
  3. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.
  4. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
  5. Honor your father and your mother.
  6. You shall not murder.
  7. You shall not commit adultery.
  8. You shall not steal.
  9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
  10. You shall not covet.

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.

How Can Russia Return to the World's Good Graces Again?

               In my previous posts I have decried the illegal actions of Vladimir Putin who has acted like a spoiled child who did not get his way. The annexation of Crimea was a temper tantrum by a spoiled child that must be undone. Crimean citizens- even the Russian speaking ones Vlad are suffering because of your impudent actions. Their water has been cut off by Ukraine because you failed to pay the bill. Maybe, if you take the water bill balance off of what Ukraine owes you for natural gas it might help.

Here are some additional steps in the right direction:

1. Return Crimea to Ukraine with the understanding that Crimea will be given autonomy and will in 15 years be declared independent of both Russia and Ukraine. After all, has not Russia punished the Tartars enough over the past 200 years?

2. Remove all of Russia's troops, advisers, and military equipment from eastern Ukraine and stop illegally crossing Ukraine's territory without permission.

3. Recognize the present government of Ukraine as the official government of Ukraine.

4. Stop threatening other countries.

5. Realize that you are only one small part of Russia and that you ultimately owe your life every day to your countrymen who have not killed you in your sleep.

6. Look into the mirror and say five times, "Boy have I made a mistake interfering in Ukraine's internal affairs."

7. Go see a doctor and have STD tests run. Remember that Adolph died of Syphilis, you could too.

8. Apologize for your mistakes and make amends. Give Lithuania's ship back to them. It's not nice to take other children' toys without asking.

9. Cut back on your nuclear programs and change your rhetoric to peace instead. You will be amazed at the reaction you will get.

10. Pay damages to the relatives who lost friends and family members on Malaysia's MH 17. I know that you personally did not fire the rocket, but your country supplied the rocket that ended their lives. Take responsibility for your actions. For once, act like a grown man. Say you are sorry for their losses even if you do not mean it (you probably won't) and pay for the funerals and compensate these people for the suffering that your actions brought into their lives.

If you do these eleven things in the next 30 days I will recommend that the sanctions be withdrawn against Russia. If you do not choose to do these things, it will be another long cold war. You had better beef up your personal security. Your countrymen will not be happy campers. No one wants to do business with you, not even China. They only cut a deal with you to boost their own lagging economy. Brazil's economy is in the tank as is South Africa's. BRICs cannot compete. Apologize and be done with it already.

I will expect a timely response from you within the next two weeks. Repeat after me, "I am sorry that I overreacted and that I invaded Crimea and Ukraine without provocation. Both Russia and I want to be good neighbors in the world. War is not good for anyone, and certainly not good for the Russian citizens and the Russian economy.  I resolve to be a better leader and a better neighbor in the future. I apologize for my remarks concerning nuclear war and any future invasion of any country. I was having a bad day that day. I am feeling better now."

Something like that would be fine if you actually mean it.

By the way, stop copying from North Korea's play book. You know that no one wins a nuclear war. Have you not seen the movie "War Games" with Matthew Broderick?  "With a nuclear war, the only way to win is not to play."

TASER: Almost 3 Million Tortured by Police Using Our Technology- 500 Murdered- Stop Their Use Today!

 Taser Inc. has the nerve to brag that almost 3 million people have been tased, with 500 of them dying as a result of being tased according to Amnesty International. Isn't it time to make this torture technology illegal and its use a felony? I believe it is.
                If Tasers were being used by competent intelligent people on say sex slaves or trafficked people it would be a crime. However, if law enforcement officers, who have an average intelligence quotient of around 96 on a scale of 180, making them some of the most mentally lazy people on the planet use Tasers, the end result is usually a lawsuit and someone's civil rights being over ran by the officer(s) at the scene.
                Last year in Fairborn, Ohio two law enforcement officers illegally searched my car as a result of a fabricated traffic stop. They had yet to make their quota of traffic stops and illegal searches that day. When the trial date came up, the ticketing officer showed me computer edited video that he or another officer had spliced together. Before I was stopped, the officer has pulled out of a side street behind me. In the video, it showed his cruiser coming down a hill behind me. The court had already paid in excess of $3,000 for an attorney to represent me. And in Dayton, Ohio due to a lack of competent police officers the entrance test score was lowered to a 45 out of 100 points earlier this year (2014) so that more ignorant police officers could get hired.
               In Columbus, Ohio a municipal court judge regularly holds a "sale on justice" where every traffic offense and misdemeanor was given only a $150 fine and court cot up to a third degree misdemeanor because, as he stated, "Police officers lie to me every day in this court and I think most of you deserve a fair hearing and a fair outcome."  All around the United States and the world were are represented by incompetent judges, crooked prosecuting attorneys, bribing attorneys, and legislative representatives who look out for the wealthy (including themselves).
               If you look into the use of Tasers by law enforcement officers you will find thousands of charges of excessive use of force made by the defendants who were tortured by the arresting officer(s). Many of these officers develop locked in syndrome where the only thing that they are concerned with is their own safety. In fact, Taser, Inc. advertises the reduction in Workmen's Compensation claims made by the torturing officers.
              I would imagine that Taser, Inc. would make the same claims for Nazi war criminals who used gas masks while nerve gassing civilians in death camps too. Torture is torture is torture. The fact is that the Taser is not a safe and effective means of protecting both the suspect and the officer/ torturer. It is a weapon of torture make no mistake about it. Police using a Taser weapon have murdered 500 people and most of them have gotten away with those murders.
             What every community, village, city, township, county, and state needs is a Citizen Review Board of Police Conduct where a citizen can make a complaint against an officer and that complaint is not covered up by other police officers. Having the mice conduct investigations of the abuse of the rights of cats obviously does not work. The fact is that police will, can, and do lie to cover up their illegal acts and abuses of their authority. The increase of civil rights lawsuits in state and federal courts against law enforcement officers over the past ten years is staggering. The number of murders committed by law enforcement officers and then covered up by other law enforcement officers is increasing annually.
              The only way to stop this increase in civil rights violations by law enforcement authorities is to create Civilian Law Enforcement Boards of Review that are staffed by non- government employees whose rulings would be final and whose rulings could order the termination or suspension of the law enforcement officer. This would end most cover ups by police officers protecting criminal acts by other police officers. The only thing a law enforcement officer fears more than being a regular citizen is being in prison. If you take away their badge and authority most of these people could not get a job as a janitor. 

             It is time that taxpaying citizens reign in these criminals who hide behind their badges and take away their torture Taser toys!

Google Lays Another Egg!

Google Lays Another Egg!

By Mark Winkle, Founder of
The Winkle Institute for Worldwide Economic Stability

                                                                                                                       September 18, 2014
            Larry Page and Google could be improving society, instead they waste their time engineering tech toys and Internet advertising schemes that only help Google. Neither of these approaches make the world any better for anyone, unless you happen to be in the one percent who can afford the bloated price of Google's stock.
            As I recently read an article about Google founder Larry Page published this past March, I sat and laughed at how clueless Page is about what people really want. You see, I conduct a massive amount of research on a wide variety of topics and I have learned to read people. I sometimes know what will be on their mind before they even think it. In applying this gift to Larry Page, every word that comes out of his mouth seems to be about his hurt pride and trying to be a world player. However, there is still the lost little tech geek boy inside his shoes. In his closed off world of money and toys, he believes that he can change the world by creating new tech crap for the rest of us to buy.
             The world does not want a car that drives itself. The world does not want automatons taking their jobs or serving them drinks. The world does not want robots spoon feeding the elderly or the handicapped (and neither do the elderly or the handicapped). The world does not want technology taking over their lives, period. These ideas clearly show that Google and Larry Page have no idea about how to go about “Understanding every want and need” of the public. That would require actual work being done and getting your hands dirty while doing it, and I don't see Google or Page doing either to help society or this planet.
            It is time that Mr. Page and his tech geeks step down out of their ivory tower and start helping the real world solve its real problems. These problems cannot be fixed by a check, by new tech toys, or by platitudes and monuments to Page's naivete. The world's problems can only be solved by research and hands on applications where your hands get dirty just coming close to the task that needs to be done.
            The March 2014 article comparing Mr. Page to Nikola Tesla was a huge stretch of the imagination to say the least. Tesla helped develop alternating current, found sources of free energy, developed various means of time travel, and died having given his life to help solve some of society's problems. On the other hand, Google and Page have created an advertising monster that uses your personal Internet usage to market things to you that you don't want or need. They then spend massive amounts of money researching and developing tech toys that no one wants or needs. The truth is that Nikola Tesla and Larry Page are a million miles apart - beyond comparison in fact. One gave his life for his fellow man, the other hides behind his money and builds tech toys that no one wants or needs.
            Page has developed a definition of what he believes Google should be. In 2012 Larry Page told a reporter that “the perfect search engine would understand whatever your need is. It would understand everything in the world deeply and give you back kind of exactly what you need.” This statement shows just how out of touch Google and Page are with the real needs of the real world.
             If Mr. Page and Google truly want to help mankind, I have a hundred and some ways that they can make the world a better place for all of us to live better lives in harmony. I challenge Mr. Page to contact me personally in the next two weeks if he and Google are really interested in doing their part to improve this world that we live on. But hey, that would require an effort on their part and a bit of hard work. They might even have to get their hands dirty, and we wouldn't want them to mess up their clothes. I doubt he'll call, because I doubt that Page and Google are really serious about anything but making advertising, money, and tech toys.

That government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. We Stand With Wikileaks and Julian Assange and Demand Worldwide Government Transparency and the Abolishment of the Patriot Act

In 1863, Abraham Lincoln stood on the edge of the field of battle at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania where 51,112 brave men fought and died for their beliefs in only three days. President Lincoln, in his speech said this about the brave men who had died, "We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedomand that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

Here in the United States our politicians have forgotten about our rights, our liberties, our freedoms, and even about the truth. WE are lied to about Obamacare, about immigration, about campaign finance reform- all while our nation's politicians hold a daily auction to sell yet another piece of this once great country down the river. 

I am not a Republican nor a Democrat. I am neither because I am a man who thinks for himself and tells the truth about what I think and what I believe. I fear no evil. No even the evil of our own government and the corporations who push and prod them to do their bidding. I do not fear death, it opens the door to eternity. I fear no man nor any woman either. 

But, I am loathe to tolerate a crooked government that sells the rights of its own citizens to the highest bidder. The Patriot Act is UNCONSTITUTIONAL and must be abolished. If our crooked United States Supreme Court will not render it moot, then we citizens must stand up for our rights and take them back one by one - by force if necessary.

I would rather that House Speaker John Boehner stand up for the United States Constitution and demand the repeal of The Patriot Act and Obamacare that be a millionaire. Blasphemy! You say! You scoundrel! Nay! Say I, I am a TRUE PATRIOT, as is Private Bradley  Manning, who was convicted of treason because he revealed the LIES that our government was telling the world about the Iraq War.

Another patriot, albeit of England is Julian Assange, who through WikiLeaks exposed those lies to the world. He was wrongfully charged by Switzerland at the request of the United States in retaliation for exposing the WAR CRIMES OF THE UNITED STATES MILITARY IN IRAQ.

Instead of presenting Manning and Assange with the Nobel Peace Prize, which would have been a truly noble gesture, both were charged with crimes- for exposing the lies of the most corrupt government and National Security Agency of the world.

Let me just say this, I Stand Up For The Truth- and So Should You! Your rights are at risk. If you stand idly by and allow brave men to be punished for exposing lies, murders, fraud, corruption, and evil men who would just as easily kill women and children for oil- which is exactly what happened in Iraq.

Fixing the World's Economies- The Realities of What it Will Take- 23 Recommendations

As a financial, environmental, legal, and human rights consultant, I have advised 35 countries and five major international organizations that practically run the world. I have been working on resolving the ongoing economic issues that began in late 2007.
          My advice has been implemented since July of 2011 to  keep Greece and the rest of the European Union from economic collapse. There is still much work to do for the world to become economically stable.
Here are twenty three recommendations that you, your local, state, provincial, and national governments need to put into effect as soon as possible to keep the economic recovery moving forward.

Fix number one: Reduce your impact by reducing your debt.
Fix number two: Mandate that banks make loans to small business both short term and long term.
Fix number three: Level out tax rates - both personal and business so that high income earners pay            higher rates regardless of how the income was earned.
Fix number four: Remove all  tax deductions and impose a flat tax of 12% plus 3% for each $10,000 of income regardless of how the income was earned. REMOVE CAPITAL GAINS PROTECTIONS. This will ensure that wealthy citizens living off of inheritances and dividends pay their fair share of income taxes.
Fix number five: Eliminate earned income credits and mandate government work projects of construction, road details to remove brush, grass, trash for welfare, food stamp, and SSI recipients instead of using overpaid union employees.
Fix number six: Mandating public gardens space set asides in every population area to provide growing space, low cost seeds, and low cost watering to provide food to low income citizens.
Fix number seven: Recycle as much as you can.
Fix number eight: Plan for the long term to reduce waste.
Fix number nine: Reduce the number of government employees to what is essential plus five percent.This will not only reduce government spending and waste, but will also free up cash that can be loaned to businesses.
Fix number ten: Reduce wasteful government spending.
Fix number eleven: Mandate by law a balanced budget.
Fix number twelve: Provide free education for all ages. Compensate teachers, administrators, and all other education employees with food, clothing, housing, and a monthly stipend. This will provide education parity and reduce the burden of increased incomes of government education employees.
Fix number thirteen: Remove union representation from government employees.
Fix number fourteen: Reduce military budgets by 20% in five years and covert operations budgets by 40% in five years.
Fix number fifteen: Plan ahead for a world at peace and reallocate assets from war preparedness to infrastructure, education, health, and poverty reduction.
Fix number sixteen: Mandate third strike death penalty law where the third offense can be appealed one time the first year after sentencing. If the appeal fails the prisoner is terminated. We need to stop providing a free ride to uncooperative citizens and repeat offenders.
Fix number seventeen: Mandate drug and alcohol prison rehab and counseling for first and second felony offense and provide job training and job placement upon their release. 
Fix number eighteen: Reduce waste and perks by politicians and remove tax deductions for campaign contributions. This will produce a more dependable government and reduce corruption which is increasing the cost of government contracts.
Fix number nineteen: Government takeover of oil and natural gas companies or place price ceilings on oil and natural gas prices. Remove oil and natural gas from the commodities markets.
Fix number twenty: Remove all government price supports on all goods and allow the free market to set the price. At the same time, allow each country to limit the amount of imported goods to shore up production, prices,  and jobs of each country to maintain a stable economy.
Fix number twenty-one:  Mandate an interest rate ceiling on credit transactions, loans, mortgages, etc. to 14% annual percentage rate including cash advances, car title loans, and second tier mortgages.
Fix Number twenty-two:  Mandate drug screens of all government housing program subscribers and all residents of any government funded residence,  offer rewards to drug and crime informers, and issue court restraining orders for drug offenders and tenants who test positive for drug use on all government housing properties including all Metropolitan, HUD, Section 8, and all other housing programs.
Fix number twenty-three: Mandate that all recipients of government SSI disability enter a job training course, and that all drug addicts and alcoholics receiving SSI enter a rehabilitation facility within six months of the application date or forfeit their benefits.

         Government corruption, greedy bankers, oil companies, natural gas companies, and the lack of continuous cash flow through the markets has brought us to our current economic situation.

In my Proposed Constitution of the United States and also the Proposed Constitution of the United European Union which I drafted in February of 2012, I list all of the rights, privileges, and benefits that each of you should be enjoying if only you would demand more from your politicians or vote them out of office.You only get what you ask for from a politician because they are not in office to serve your needs first and foremost. They are in office for the power and government free ride that comes from being in office.

These are both available on this blog site as well as  where I advise world leaders.

On This Day We Mourn.......

On this September 11, 2014, we mourn the loss of over 4,000 civilians which our government killed in 2001 in New York City in their effort to start a war with Iraq and Afghanistan.

We mourn the loss of our liberties that are dying as a result of the Patriot Act;
We mourn the loss of our privacy as a result of government spying into our communications and our emails;
We mourn the loss of government transparency from a government that covered up its involvement in the acts of terrorism on September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center;
We mourn the loss of truth and justice in the United States and throughout the world as a result of the lies told by governments, politicians, and  the militaries around the world;
We mourn the loss of the millions of jobs that were lost as a result of greedy banks and crooked politicians;
We mourn the loss of the millions of citizens of Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and any country that we have illegally invaded;
We mourn the loss of our sense of security as a result of repeated lies told to us by our presidents, senators, and congressmen;
We mourn the loss of lives by any means at the hands of any American, whether the murderer was a soldier, politician, robber, a mother, or a father;
We mourn the loss of the freedoms and rights that were once ours, and that were taken from us in the middle of the night by crooked  Democrat politicians;
We mourn the loss of the value of our word and our honor as a result of lying politicians and generals;
We mourn these losses because it did not have to be this way.

The United States used to stand for freedom, liberty, justice for all, dignity, human rights, equality, truth, honor, righteous ideals, and religious freedom ...... What do we stand for now?

The Ukraine Question: Should Part of a Country be Permitted to Secede?

           As we teeter-totter ever closer to a war with Russia and Crazy Putin we must ask ourselves what rights each citizen and group of citizens have in a country. Does the arm have the right to separate a become part of another body without asking the body to which it belongs? Does a nose or an ear have the right to jump off of an ugly face onto the face of a better looking person without first asking permission or weighing the cost to the rest of the body? I would say not!
            Similarly, eastern Ukraine's separatists, who are a minority in Ukraine decided one day that they wanted to sever their ties with Ukraine and forcibly take the land and its assets with them and become part of Russia.
                                               96 Years of Russian Interference in Ukraine

The Ukrainian People's Republic or Ukrainian National Republic (Ukrainian: Українська Народня Республіка, Ukrayins’ka Narodnia Respublika; abbreviated УНР, UNR), or simply Ukraine is the predecessor of modern Ukraine that was declared (on 23 June 1917) at first as a part of the Russian Republic after the Russian Revolution but that proclaimed its independence on 25 January 1918. During its short existence the republic went through several political transformations from the socialist-lenient republic headed by the Central council with its General secretariat to the national republic, led by Directorate and Symon Petlyura. Between April and December 1918 the Ukrainian People's Republic was non-existent and overthrown by the Ukrainian State of Pavlo Skoropadsky. From autumn 1919 it was an ally of the Second Polish Republic.But by then the state de-facto was non-existent.The 18 March 1921 Treaty of Riga between the Second Polish Republic, Soviet Russia (acting also on behalf of Soviet Belarus) and Soviet Ukraine sealed the fate of the Ukrainian People's Republic.
After the October Revolution many governments were formed in Ukraine. The two most important of them the Ukrainian People's Republic, residing in Kiev, and the Ukrainian People's Republic of Soviets, residing in Kharkiv. These two sides were in permanent conflict between each other, which resulted in many casualties among Ukrainians fighting in opposition in civil war as part of the wider Ukrainian-Soviet War.[2] The Soviet Union would (after the Treaty of Riga) extend control over what would ultimately become the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic and a member of the Soviet Union.

             I ask each of you, my loyal readers, where would the United States be if England had succeeded the southern states in the civil war in the 1860's? We would be a country divided into two countries that oppose one another on numerous human rights issues and economic issues arising over those same human rights issues. 
            Russia does not have a problem with enslaving people and indoctrinating them into its failed policies of government controlled Communism and Marxism. Many millions have been starved to death in Ukraine and other former Soviet countries to feed the fat oligarchs of Russia. 
            If NATO stands by and allows Russia to continue to invade Ukraine, it becomes a worthless body of ninnies and wimps afraid of a school yard bully who threatens to give them wedgies every day for the rest of the school year. 
            Recently, Putin threatened nuclear war with NATO if NATO and the European Union did not stay out of the Ukraine conflict. These are threats by a diseased mind that are folly and without any substance but bluster and hot air behind them. Would Russia actually dare to go head to head with the United States in a nuclear war over Russia's illegal invasion and seizing of part of a sovereign state (Crimea)? Where would old fart Vladimir hide? The shine off of his bald head can be seen by satellite from space. He might as well paint a bulls-eye on his back while he is at it. 
          I heard rumors that his wife divorced him because he was impotent and even Viagra needed the assistance of a crane to get his soldier to salute for a minute and four seconds. So, we are to believe that Vladimir Putin, is willing to commit half of his country to become ashes over Ukraine? I seriously doubt that even Vladimir Putin is that delusional. He may be a bully, but he isn't suicidal, not yet anyway. 

                                    ANOTHER SOLUTION TO THE UKRAINE RESOLUTION

          The world will never recognize Crimea as part of Russia. Russian citizens will become pariahs and targets of citizens of other countries soon and borders will become closed to Russians and Russia products by the end of 2014 if Russia does not free Crimea and return it back to Ukraine. The same will happen if Russia continues to invade Ukraine, bring in troops and equipment, interfere with the sovereignty of Ukraine, or continue to threaten Ukraine with military action. Vladimir Putin can feel the noose tightening around Russia's figurative neck more each day. The Ruble is nearly worthless. Trade between Russia and other countries is at an all time low. Russia is seen as a terrorist country be more than 3/4 of the United Nations members. 

          Unfortunately, until Vladimir Putin is removed from office, I do not see a diplomatic solution to this matter. Ukraine rightfully will not, and must now bow to the tyrant Putin, who has repeatedly violated international laws and is a war criminal that ranks along the likes of George Bush, Jr. and Vice President Dick Cheney of the United States in their illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
           Putin has illegally invaded Georgia, Moldova, and now Ukraine since he took office and became dictator in chief of Russia. A similar war criminal of the former Serbian state Slobodan Milošević.
Milošević claimed that Albanian authorities had abused their powers, that the autonomy of Kosovo was allowing the entrenchment of separatism in Kosovo, and that the rights of the minority Serbs in Kosovo were being regularly violated. As a solution, he called for political change to reduce the autonomy of Kosovo, protect minority Serb rights, and initiate a strong crackdown on separatism in Kosovo.

         Does this sound familiar?  Putin has claimed that the minority Russian speaking citizens of eastern Ukraine's rights are being violated; however, their rights are  being violated by other Russian speaking persons including Russian spies and Russian soldiers who are shelling other Russian speaking people's houses and businesses in a land grab by Russia because Ukraine has repeatedly refused to sever ties with the European Union.

         The only two solutions that I see that will have any lasting effect on the world and will remove the threat of war and civil unrest throughout the rest of the world is 1) the assassination of Vladimir Putin, or 2) an all out war for Ukraine's sovereignty involving NATO's pussies and wimpy general, the European Union, and the United States. China will gladly stand back and try to overrun any conquered country.

       So Vladimir, What's It Going to Be? 
Are You Going to Take Your Toys and Boys and Go Home? 
Are You up For the Ass Kicking of Your Life? 

         Anyone who seriously thinks that ol' Vlad is serious about pushing the red button on a nuclear bomb needs to watch "War Games" with Matthew Broderick. No one wins a nuclear war. No one is threatening Russia's sovereignty, but one nuclear bomb and Russia is history. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. Then Vladimir will find out if God exists. What will be left will be water vapor and falling ashes for the next three years where Moscow used to be, along with a cold weather front that will offset any "global warming" for the next ten years.

       You see, the measured sanctions were my idea. I never get credit for my advice because the politicians always take credit for every breath that leaves someone else's mouth as well as any rational thought. Their alcohol addled minds can't think clearly enough to think up long term strategies. If I was running things, your soldiers would be buried ass up by now looking down on their final godless destinies. 

       Count your blessings Vladimir. Even Henry Kissinger isn't as good as knowing your next thought as I am.  Your country is wounded and bleeding. The economy of your once great nation is slowing dying with every breath. If war begins, you can count on this year being the last great wheat harvest for the next ten years. You may sever the pipeline between Russia and the European Union, but the stocks of natural gas and oil around the world are near a record high, a poor time to cut your own country's top revenue source. Next year, your wheat harvest will rot in the fields.

       Your oil companies are begging for loans like pan handlers on the street corners. Your banks assets are drying up. Your citizens will revolt internally once winter comes and they realize that you have single handedly crushed crushed Russia's economy as a result of a temper tantrum characteristic of a spoiled child whose diaper needs changed and whose rattle has fallen to the floor.

       You could abdicate and save yourself and your country the humiliation of being broken into fifteen to twenty sovereign nations. You could save your own reputation and make your place in history as a peacemaker instead of a bully. Government backed (forced) Communism is an experiment that went wrong a long time ago. Russia and China need to wake up and allow their citizens the basic human rights spoken of in The Spirit of Laws by Baron de Montesquieu. If you are too cheap to buy a copy- get a free pdf download here: .
       It's a good read. Too bad it's not in Russian. If Russia invades Ukraine and if Russia uses any nuclear weapon against anyone, their won't be a next generation of Russian speaking citizens in Russia- they will all be speaking English. 

       You see, Vladimir, I look into your mind and I see what could happen in every possible outcome, and no outcome of the Ukraine situation benefits Russia. Russia will not survive a second cold war. As it stands, emissaries around the world are watching every troop movement and every lie that comes out of Russia, to gauge whether Russia should be voted out of the United Nations and the United Nations Security Council. 

        Your choices are few as I see them: 1) Remove all troops and military equipment from every part of Ukraine including Sevastopol, Crimea and all other lands of sovereign Ukraine; 2) begin a war that you cannot and will not win; 3) unleash a nuclear weapon and see your country destroyed physically,politically, and economically by the rest of the free world; 4) end your own life - poison is quickest; 5) Abdicate your office and never return to politics. I know you might not like any of these choices, but I did say that your choices were limited. You hold the paintbrush that has painted yourself into this corner. The door to forgiveness is closing slowly. The next step is yours and a wise man would admit his errors and give back what he has stolen. Are you a wise man Vladimir Putin? I know your heart, in fact, I know what your next move will be. 

I would withdraw all of my troops from Ukraine and Crimea. I would admit error and complicity in the downing of Malaysian Flight MH17 and compensate the victim's families. I would cooperate with the European Union Human Rights Commission and the United Nations Human Rights Commission to obtain autonomy for Crimea if its citizens vote in favor of autonomy.  I would make peace with my neighbors and thank God almighty for giving me life and for saving Russia from my mistakes. I would request that all Russian speaking citizens who desire to leave Ukraine be permitted safe passage into Russia without visas or passports. 

Then I would thank God for allowing me to continue to live.
         Like your predecessors, you started a war that you cannot win. Their will be no victory, there will be no statues or parades in your honor. History will soon forget that you were born and communism will be forever crushed in Russia- nay- it will be outlawed. Many millions of Russians will be suddenly converted to Christianity and government run churches will be filled with the truest of believers, including yourself and your own family- God forbid! Oy vey!
