The Haves and The Have Nots of the Internet ICANN Needs to Investigate

               Recently while researching for a domain name for a non-profit organization that I am starting up with a few other like-minded people, I found that internet firm has been given control of the majority of internet domain names by ICANN. Whether these domain names were bought outright, were won at auction, or obtained otherwise, to put the Free Speech Rights of future internet business owners in the hands of one company is folly.
               Our organization is called It was founded on June 2, 2016 in an effort to bring people together, but someone at has repeatedly interferred in the transaction. For what reason, I do not know. I have had to submit personal financial transaction data and official government documents five times to them over the last week to verify the purchase of the domain name.
               However, I am asking ICANN to conduct an investigation into's business practices, the limited access provided to domain names, the improper requests for personal bank statements, official government identification documents and the like to verify that an order was actually placed.
                Another item of concern is the notice placed by that "they auction off to the highest bidder internet domains that "more than one party is interested in purchasing."  The auction is held by to benefit their own profit margins. No evidence that the other alleged "interested party" ever existed or exists in real life. As the alleged auction is under the complete control of, anything could happen, any fake or real offer could be made or covered up by their staff.
                 The fact that ICANN placed placed them in possession of the majority of Internet domain names truly limits the future of the internet and therefore the First Amendment Rights of every American, as well as every citizen of the world.

Below are some of the emails concerning the mentioned transaction:

This is what happens when a corporation is given too much authority over any part of the future of the Internet:

Dear Secure Sever Staff,                                              June 15, 2016

                As you seem to be having so much fun violating Federal Banking laws, I must inform you that a formal complaint will be filed with the Federal Trade Commission Fraud unit, FBI Internet Crime Unit IC3, and the US Federal Reserve Fraud Unit in Washington, DC. Internet crime is taken seriously. A formal complaint is also being filed with ICANN over this matter. The fact that payment has clearly been received by your bank on June 8, 2016 and the fact that you have failed to timely deliver the product established prima facie evidence of a clear intent to defraud. Under FTC regulations, your firm was required to effect deliver within 72 hours of the receipt of funds.

I have contacted the CEO of Go and asked him to intervene on my behalf. If the domain name which I ordered and paid for is not reinstated immediately,  criminal charges will be filed against your secure server staff members.  Additionally, litigation will begin in one month for the loss of potential revenue and the loss of my time spent attempting to clear this matter up at the rate of $500.00 per hour, my billable rate for consulting.

Additionally, two blog posts stating the facts of the events has been posted on both of my international financial consulting websites. You can read these posts at and

I would also like an apology from Go's secure server Dept. Head Thursday. Maybe you think that poor customer service is acceptable, but I don't. I think holding up the approval of a non-profit's domain name, long after it was paid for, is unacceptable under any circumstances.

The fact that I have had to present payment verification on five different occasions in the past week is unacceptable and intolerable by any means.

Attached is the payment page from my checking account made by Key Bank to Go  on June 8, 2016 for the domain name .

Please forward a copy of this email to the Secure Server Division, the VP of Customer Service, and Go Daddy's CEO. I am sure they will not find it nearly as amusing as you have. Please have you VP of Customer Service call me Thursday morning.

The Great Brexit Con Game of 2016 - Who Would Have Thought?

                   Sitting back watching the politicians in the kingdom of disarray (formerly the United Kingdom), defile themselves over the simple question of whether or not their country will finally stop bellyachin about the European Union and join the Eurozone already.
                   Tired of sitting on the fence the Prime Minister stepped in crap and got the country riled up over nothing again. The fact of the matter is that this is all a scam by the United Kingdom to garner more favorable trade and economic terms in the current treaty.
                   There is no legal way to exit the European Union- NONE. At least not under the current treaty, and it is doubtful that a unanimous vote can be garnered to obtain a graceful exit. A Brexit, like the attempted GREXIT is a con job of monumental proportions. A parlor joke played by the United Kingdom on the rest of the European Union- they should be ashamed!
                    Even after negotiating better economic treatment terms and political status in the European Union and ensuring that essentially nothing will be changed for the next several years, Britain will still hold a symbolic vote to demonstrate their displeasure with the politicians of their fellow European Union member states.
                    In 2012 Greece attempted the same gambit and it failed. Under the Treaty of Lisbon and its predecessor, the Treaty of Maastriche there is no exit strategy to legally exit the European Union.  And that's a good thing. The European Union took decades to assemble, and should not be taken lightly. At present, there are 28 member states with eight memberships in various stages of acquisition.
                     After successfully blackmailing the European Commission into making changes in the Treaty of Lisbon, PM David Cameron now desires Britain to remain in the European union. Talk about being two faced! Instead of doing what was best for the entire European Union and Europe as a whole, Britain coerced its trade partners into a deal that is self-serving and destabilizing of the European Union's economic future.
                     If the politicians would stay the hell out of the mix, the European Union would become the 3rd largest economic power in the world instead of being 28 selfish countries trying to compete with one another.

Why We Are in the Top Ten Economists in the World List

Unfortunately for Keynesian Economists, the best way to recover from en ECONOMIC DEPRESSION, which despite the paid-off news outlets version, we were not in a recession. RECESSIONS DO NOT LAST NINE YEARS!  DEPRESSIONS DO LAST A LOT LONGER THAN recessions.

Keynesians like to spend other people's money. The true path to economic and financial success is to reduce your debt, reduce the interest rates, reduce your level of spending. Unfortunately, the United States Federal Reserve is not a government agency, but assinine bankers that like to charge interest, and live off of the sweat of others.

The moronic financial advisers at the New TYork Times had it all wrong. Now even CNN is singing our tune!

Check out the success that we had with austerity and then restarting the economy in the European Union:

Eurozone economy grew faster than the U.S.

CNN Money 11 hours ago    April 29, 2016 Boom! Europe is back. At least for now. The eurozone economy grew 0.6% in the first three months of the year compared to the previous quarter, easily outpacing both the U.S. and the U.K. Growth was double the pace of the previous six months, and way better than expected. Economists were forecasting expansion of about 0.4%. (U.S. GDP grew by 0.5% but more like 0.1% if calculated in the same way as the Eurozone data.) Spain and France delivered much more robust growth than expected. And unemployment in the eurozone fell to 10.2% in March, the lowest since 2011. Europe is getting a lift from ultra cheap money, low energy prices, a rebound in consumer spending, and government support for refugees.

While the US Federal Reserve was sitting on its assets, and trying to hide its debts, the European Union handed over its economic data to me carte blanche and said, "Please fix this mess!" and I did, with the guidance and wisdom of God Almighty.


The award money will be well spent helping food pantries streamline their services to help them survive long term.

I do a massive amount of research before I post anything. I look at everything before I advise governments to make changes to their economies.

If Greece would fire the more than 85,000 government employees that I have proven that they do not need, their economy would recover much faster.

I am available for hire or for sponsorship. If you would like me to speak at your engagement, the fee is $50,000 per day plus expenses, half in advance.

Barack Obama- A Wasted Eight Years on a Failure of a President

Barack Obama- A Wasted Eight Years on a Failure of a President
Council on Foreign Relations, You Should Be So Ashamed!

          In the past eight years of the history of the planet, the process of electing the president of the number one super power of the world has failed the world. An unqualified, non-citizen of the United States, whose own birth mother declared that he was not born in Hawaii, whose father was born in Kenya, took the fugure head position of president.
          The Council on Foreign Relations has made a mockery of the democratic election process of the United States of America. In forcing this socialist upon the country that claims to be the freest nation in the world, the nation where human rights are abused in our prisons, the nation that imprisons more people than anywhere else in the world (based on race and financial ability to obtain legal counsel), where government and judicial corruption are commonplace and tolerated, the Council on Foreign Relations clearly made the wrong choice.
          Instead of bringing on a true native born citizen of the United States, the Council on Foreign Relations chose to attempt to bring government mandated socialism to the United States. Instead, what has happened is the fracturing of society and an ever widening split between the “haves” and the “have nots.” What I see happening in the next twenty years is a social revolution where the middle class will back legislation that will decimate the power structure of the “haves” to bring their wealth crashing down around them.
          Instead of increasing the number of people covered by health insurance, the opposite has come true. The number of jobs and employed hours worked has decreased as employee’s hours are cut so the employer does not have to pay for their health insurance. The price of health insurance has also increased despite the promises by Obama that these things would not occur if Obama failure healthcare was passed into law. Despite the fact that the European Union nearly went bankrupt in 2009 as a result of the costs of ever expanding socialized medicine, despite the repeated failure of China, Cuba, Russia and other communist countries’ economies due to their government enforced socialism,
          In the middle of the Economic Depression of 2007-2015, Obama could be found wasting taxpayer’s money on vacation with his wife and her entourage of more than a hundred people. The cost to the taxpayers of the United States was in the hundreds of millions over the past eight years.
          The economic policies of the Obama administration were so out of touch with reality that the United State’s budget deficit has increased substantially from the first day of his incompetent presidency.
          When he was outed as a homosexual bGarrow claims that up to a week ago he was a covert CIA agent, but was fired by none other than Obama himself because Garrow told the world (on Alex Jones’ radio, Glenn Beck, and several conservative internet mediums) that Obama’s U.S. military was purging top brass using a “litmus test” of sorts. High-ranking military officials were being asked “Would you fire on an American citizen?”. Garrow claims that if one answered no, you would be fired.
But that’s not the bombshell.
Garrow says that he knows Obama had ordered the hits that killed Tom Clancy and Andrew Breitbart!
On the early morning hours of March 1, 2012, conservative media firebrand Andrew Breitbart collapsed on a street near his home in Brentwood, CA. Breitbart was only 43 years old.
On April 21, 2012, the L.A. Coroners Office released its final autopsy report on Breitbart — that he had died from “heart failure.” That same day, a forensics technician or criminalist at the L.A. Coroners Office, Michael Cormier, died suddenly from suspected arsenic poisoning after complaining about pain and vomiting. (To my knowledge, we still have not been told the official cause of Cormier’s death.)
According to Dr. Jim Garrow, Andrew Breitbart did not die from natural causes, but was killed by the Obama Administration.
Best-selling author of techno-military thrillers Tom Clancy died last week on Oct. 2 at the age of 66.
The New York Times said Clancy died at Johns Hopkins Hospital after a brief illness. But neither Clancy’s lawyer, J.W. Thompson Webb, nor his longtime publisher, Ivan Held, president of G. P. Putnam’s Sons, said they knew the precise cause of death. Under “cause of death” on Clancy’s autopsy is “cause of death unknown.”
When Clancy wrote The Hunt for Red October, he was met at the door by Pentagon officials and FBI agents demanding to know where he got top-secret documents. Dr. Garrow states that after the incident, the CIA “spoon fed” him classified information and scenarios to write his novels in a manner that was entertaining but contained elements of truth. Garrow says that is why Clancy was killed because he was getting too close to a secret they don’t want the world to know.
Dr. Garrow states Obama had Tom Clancy killed as well, noting that it takes 5 days for plant toxins and most poisons to break down and leave no traces in the human body. Strangely (or not), doctors did not perform an autopsy on Clancy’s body for 5 days.
Garrow ended his radio interview with one last revelation.
He said the Obama administration is made up of Marxist Muslims who all take their orders from Senior Adviser to the President, Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett. Garrow said it is well known to intelligence agencies all over the world that Obama is a foreign plant who was placed on the path to the presidency by ultra-rich Saudi nationals. This is why all of Obama’s education records have been permanently sealed.
y Andrew Breitbart. In an expose, Dr.

The startling assertion is that the current First Lady of the United States of America, known as Michelle Robinson Obama, is a biological male posing as a woman.
That anyone would make such an assertion is a mark of how much distrust and suspicion the Obamas have engendered, due entirely to Barack’s secretiveness concerning his Selective Service registration, school records (including even his kindergarten record!), and medical records; his refusal to explain why his Social Security number has a Connecticut prefix; and his outright deception about his birth certificate, an image of which he made public on April 27, 2011, but which forensic experts have determined to be a fake. It doesn’t help that the Hawaii official, Loretta Fuddy, who had signed off on Obama’s purportedly birth certificate was the only passenger who died in a small plane crash.
Startlingly, even the Obamacare sign-up website cannot verify Barack Obama’s identity! (See also “Investor’s Business Daily editorial asks if Obama’s entire life is a fiction.”)
So I decided to just present what I’ve found and leave the reader to draw his/her own conclusions as to whether Mooch is a transexual.
Barry calls his wife “Michael”
In a speech on September 30, 2011, at the transition or change-of-office ceremony of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at Fort Myer, Virginia, Obama referred to his wife not as Michelle but as Michael.
As you can verify for yourself in the video below, Obama clearly said: “Distinguished guests, men and women of the finest military in the world, most of all, Admiral Mullen, Deborah, Michael and I also want to acknowledge your son Jack who was deployed today, all of you have performed extraordinary service to our country….”
Bafflingly, even the text of the speech on says the same thing:
“Secretary Panetta, thank you for your introduction and for your extraordinary leadership. Members of Congress, Vice President Biden, members of the Joint Chiefs, service secretaries, distinguished guests, and men and women of the finest military in the world. Most of all, Admiral Mullen, Deborah, Michael and I also want to also acknowledge your son Jack, who’s deployed today. All of you have performed extraordinary service to our country.”
Admiral Mullen’s first name is Michael. However, throughout his speech, Obama referred to Mullen as “Mike,” not Michael.
Michelle’s birth name was Michael
Even before Obama’s gaffe, there were bloggers who said Michelle’s real (birth) name is Michael.
As an example, three months before Obama publicly referred to his wife as “Michael,” blogger Matthew B. Glosser wrote on June 30, 2011 that he was contacted by “an anonymous source who claimed to be a former White House staff member of the Obama administration, specifically “a former member of the First Lady’s personal staff.” The source claimed to have sensitive information regarding a stunning revelation about Michelle Obama and wanted to arrange a meeting with Glosser in person to present the evidence for this claim.
Though initially skeptical, Glosser nevertheless met with the “anonymous source” on June 25, 2011. The source said “the major alphabet networks … are in the tank for Obama and it is network policy to cover up any critical stories regarding the President and his family. The White House has officially created a State media.” Then the source said the following about Michelle Obama:
Michelle Obama, First Lady of the United States, was born Michael LaVaughn Robinson in Chicago, Illinois on January 17th, 1964. He was the second son born to Fraser Robinson III, a well known cocaine dealer and union thug for Crime Lord/Mayor Richard J. Daley, and Marian Shields Robinson, a transient street prostitute who was diagnosed with the HIV virus in 1998. He [Michael] was a popular high school athlete and in 1982, he accepted a scholarship to play middle linebacker for the Oregon State Beavers.
After finishing a respectable rookie season with 88 tackles and 7.5 sacks, he suddenly dropped out of the school. Fellow teammates observed that Robinson could regularly be heard lamenting over how he is a “woman trapped inside a man’s body”, and on January 13th, 1983, he underwent sex reassignment surgery at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. To hide the shame of his new identity, Michael left Oregon State to attend Princeton University under his new legal name, “Michelle Robinson”. Years later, he met Barry Obama Jr. a Kenyan immigrant who later became aware of “Michelle’s” true identity. They subsequently married and adopted two children.
          So, Michael, or Michelle, where are Barry Obama’s Education records, his Kenyan Birth Certificate, your Birth Certificate, the Birth Certificates of your children?

          Now, let us proceed to the economics of the Obama usurpation of the White House by the Council on Foreign Relations, which has proven consistently over the past sixteen years plus that any idiot can be president of the United States.
          Instead of halting the economic decline of the United States and the world, instead of holding bankers and insurance companies responsible for collapsing the economy of the United States as a result of their greed, these lawbreakers were allowed to temporarily escape justice.
          Instead of protecting the investment of the middle class citizens of the United States, the people who Obama catered to in his election campaigns, he permitted the foreclosure and eviction of more than 60,000,000 (60 million) people from homes that they had placed their time and money in.
          With the Real Estate market collapsing, funding drying up for companies to pay their employees, loans drying up for companies to continue operating, and loans drying up for new equipment purchases, the Obama administration hid its head like a turtle.
          What should have been done, was that a moratorium should have been put into place on evictions, foreclosures, price increases, and bank acquisitions. Instead, the Obama administration allowed the Cancer of greed to continue devastating the economy for yet another six years, all the while blaming former incompetent President George Bush Jr. aka the idiot.
          Instead of tightening the belt of the economy and cutting spending, the wastefulness of this administration extended the economic collapse, and will have a long lasting effect on the world’s economy in the future.
          The failure of this administration to reign in the banking and insurance industries that caused the collapse, and the failure to investigate and audit the United States Federal Reserve demonstrate a complete lack of leadership and foresight as to what the future holds for the world’s economy.
          The failure of this administration to dismantle the autocracy of the banking, insurance, oil, and natural gas industries on the world’s economy through the United States Federal Reserve Bank and legislation that continues to hide the many crimes committed by stock companies, banks, insurance companies, and oil and gas companies in the name of greed, will eventually cause the economic failure of the fiat economy of the world.

          In auditing the United States Federal Reserve from the outside, I have found that the Federal Reserve fabricated its last annual report for 2015.
The Federal Reserve continues a secretive bailout of the banking system by purchasing more and more questionable mortgage backed securities.  You would think that $1 trillion would catch the attention of the media but they seemed focus on other trivial items.  The Fed balance sheet is still at record levels above $2.8 trillion to be exact, but the more troubling aspect of all of this is the amount of mortgage backed securities they have purchased.  They continue to hoard toxic commercial real estate loans and a massive amount of residential mortgage backed securities.  How much?  The Fed now holds over $947 billion in mortgage backed securities.  Keep in mind that prior to this financial crisis the Fed rarely held anything else except quality paper on its balance sheet.  Yet this is the cost of the shadow financial bailout.
The shadow bailout of the financial system
The Fed continues to artificially interfere with the market by purchasing securities that have little demand in the real marketplace.  Because of this, the Fed balance sheet looks like a dumping ground for toxic paper:
federal reserve balance sheet
Examine the above chart very carefully.  Prior to 2008 the Fed principally held traditional security holdings “aka things not toxic” but now a large portion of their portfolio is toxic paper.  When we say toxic we mean that the Fed is overpaying and storing these paper assets like a nuclear waste facility.  At some point, people need to recognize what is being pushed into the Fed balance sheet.  The banking system has failed to deal with these problems or to confront them head on.  Most of the loans in the balance sheet are backed by the ailing real estate market.
Take a quick look at the commercial real estate market for example:
Source:  MIT
Although prices have moved up from the bottom, they are light-years away from coming close to the face value of the loans.  The Fed is simply storing failed strip-mall projects, luxury hotels, and other non-crucial economic loans to aid the failing banks.  The cost of course is shifted to taxpayers in the form of a depreciating currency and the devastating cost of inflation.  The only reason interest rates are so low at the moment is because the Fed is buying so much of this paper and sticking it into their own balance sheet.  Ask yourself this, if things were so good why is the Fed balance sheet still near the peak?
The Fed has gone bananas with its balance sheet:
fed debt
Even the Fed openly talks about this:
“(Fed) As Figure 1 shows, the Fed’s recent securities purchases have caused its balance sheet to grow enormously. Just before the financial crisis, the Fed’s largest financial asset was about $0.8 trillion in Treasury securities, and its chief liability was a similar amount of currency outstanding in the form of Federal Reserve notes. The Fed now holds about $2.4 trillion in Treasury and federal agency securities. These assets are roughly balanced by a similar amount of currency and bank reserves, which can be thought of as the electronic equivalent of currency.”
Electronic equivalent of currency?  Not exactly.  But in our modern day system debt is money until it implodes.  That is the issue with having the ability to digitally print money in the shadows and bailout financial institutions with no oversight from government.  We are talking trillions of dollars here and we still don’t have a full picture of what the Fed is holding.  The recent audit only gave us a tiny snapshot of what is transpiring at the Fed.
The challenge of course is what will occur once the Fed comes clean with this balance sheet.  The idea is that they will engineer enough inflation through all these shell games that at some point, they will be able to release the assets to market and then allow banks to sell them off.  The Fed realizes that this is not possible so they are actively trying to create asset inflation and have conducted little focus on helping the ailing economy.  What do they care?  The financial bankers care not about nations but their own bottom line.  At the moment they rather sacrifice the middle class than realize and deal with the bad bets they made over the past decade.  And the Fed continues to aid in this massive shadow bailout.
          The failure of this presidential administration to hold the bankers and insurance companies responsible for the 2007-2015 economic depression, (not a recession) is criminal in itself. Obama should have been impeached, but a weak United States Senate, as usual, the buying of a United States Supreme Court Chief Justice by the administration and insurance companies, and the failure of the political and economic worlds are tantamount to my evaluation of the Council on Foreign Relation’s choice of Barry Barack Obama as fiat (fake) president of the United States as a complete and utter failure.
          The Council on Foreign Relations should stick to knitting instead of interfering in the economics and politics of the world’s democracies lest they be overthrown from within by wise men who respect honor, truth, and freedom of choice.
          It is time for Barry Barack Obama to tell the truth. I doubt he is man enough to openly discuss his homosexuality, his family, his failure as a president, his selection by the Council on Foreign Relations, the subjection of the world’s population to economic decline caused by the greed of the selfish autocracy, and whether or not he is Christian or a Muslim plant.
          I believe in miracles, but I do not believe that Barack  Obama is capable of telling the truth about himself or anything else. We are all worse off after sixteen years plus of interference and obstruction of our economic and our democracy by the Council on Foreign Relations and the world’s autocracy.
          The lies told by former Pres. Bush Jr. on his invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan. The lies about 9/11, which was an inside job by the NSA, the failed takeover of Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Middle East, the failed deterrence of Iran’s nuclear program, the failure to aid Ukraine in its fight against Russia, the failure to remove radicals from Iraq, the failure to aid in stabilizing Egypt, Syria, Iran, North Korea, Myanmar, Lybia and many other nations, the failure to secure the borders of the United States, the continued assault on freedom of speech in the United States, and too many other failures to date in the past sixteen years of economic and political turmoil demonstrate the failure of the process for electing the President of the United States of America.
          We are no longer a nation of freedom and rights, but a nation being controlled by those who will gladly kill journalists, bloggers, authors, writers, publishers, news anchors, politicians and others that are willing to openly declare the truth and thereby place their lives on the line by doing so. God help and protect us all.
          For those interested in seeing just how corrupt our courts system and political system has become, try suing someone without an attorney like I have and see how the corrupt greedy attorneys and corrupt greedy judges work together to deny the average citizen of justice –reference Mark Winkle v. Colleen Ruggieri, et al., Mark Winkle v. Carol Loranger, et al., Mark Winkle v. Thomas Co, et al. and others.

What True Love Is

What True Love Is…….
I was just lying there, thinking about a young lady, thinking about what it would mean to me if she said these words to me, “My soul belongs to God, but my heart belongs to you, to do with what you want, as long as you want it.” In my dream, I had just said the same words to her a few days earlier.
My thoughts turned to my relationship with God. You do realize, that she has said, my soul belongs to God? As all souls do. They are not ours to give and take from one deity to another. While we may pledge our love to God or Satan, our souls belong to God alone. We have no authority to buy, sell, trade, or offer them to anyone, and no such bargain is ever honored by God.
As a result of my thoughts of undying love for this lady, who has pledged her heart to another (for the time being), I came to the realization that we do the same to God. Whenever we question God’s love for us. When we feel that God does not care or is not listening to us. When we feel guilty about something we have done, but do not want to face the consequences. When we are afraid of the future, we seek out those we think can reveal the future to us. We seek out horoscopes, Taro dealers, fortune tellers, palm readers, and the like (all fake mind you). Every one of these tell you the lies you want to hear. If the told you that the future could change, and will be changed by your own actions, would you pay for their time? Would you ever go back to them? I would think not! But, by giving you the false hope that “your dreams will always come true,” (good and bad), they ensnare you into believing that they have a connection to the thoughts of God, (where all truth and reality originate).
Those who feel guilty seek out necromancers, spiritualists, and other false prophets who tell them what they think would make you feel better. Several of these false prophets have made a name for themselves on television. Those who pay for their false counsel should realize that the only way to make themselves feel better is to get right with God.
While Satanists may pledge their love to evil, their eternal souls are only damned if they refuse to turn their allegiance to their creator.
In fact, the only reason that we seek answers from anyone but God is that we don’t love God enough to accept the truth. We might not get the answer that we want to hear. If we ask questions, knowing that the answer might disappoint us, but would be the God’s honest truth, would not the asking be worthwhile? We are, after all talking to the creator of the universe, and it, in turn is responding to our cries for attention.
We might not get what we want, and events may not happen the way that we wanted them to when we dreamed about it, but we always get what we need when we ask God for help.  Jesus said, 
" I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.  I and the Father are one.”  Now that’s true love.
I am reminded of a line I have heard many times. "Would you die for him?" There is no greater love than willing to die to your own desires and needs to meet the desires and needs of someone else.

John 10:28-30
