HOLONOMICS -- AN IMPORTANT AND GROWING SYNTHESIS OF NEW AGE THINKING AND PLANNING
I quickly learned from internet research that this was one of many projects being inspired by a new book circulating in both business and academic circles entitled HOLONOMICS: BUSINESS WHERE PEOPLE AND PLANET MATTER. Authors Simon and Maria Morae Robinson certainly do not look like idealogues or schemers. Instead, they come across as a fresh faced relatively nice young couple. They are are presently important players in stirring the pot of a concept called “holism.” It also goes by the name of “holonomy” and the term they say they “coined” of “holonomics.” For sure, they are true and sincere believers in their cause. Their cause beautifully and unfortunately illustrates what I call “the hidden dangers of the New Age rainbow.”

Yes, there will be global warming -- but not for the reasons many think
As long as I've knowingly observed the New Age Movement (since 1981), there were sub-goals in addition to their New World Order; New World Religion; and New Age "Messiah" ones.
Some of the more important subgoals were:
1. Reduce the USA;
2. End separation of Church & State (so as to promote New Age, New World Religion concepts)
3. Earth reverence and worship her as "Mother Earth", "Pachamama" and/or "Goddess Gaia".
Now in the early days that I first observed, I found small paperback volumes on the perils of a coming ice age. A few mild winters later, and it was now "global warming." After a few then colder winters, it was "climate change."
Well, I doubt if many of those watchers have bothered to dust off their Bibles, but had they done so, they might have even found some passages supporting their "global warming" theories. As there are the fewest copyright issues with the King James Version of the Bible, I will quote from it. One can find very similar language in the Catholic Douay Bibles.
But BEFORE all of this, Revelation 14 tells us all were given fair warning:
It appears that the prophecy warns that we were to fear only the God who created the heaven and earth and the sea and the fountains of waters.
There has been a great deal of speculation as to who is the Beast and what is his image. Having observed the New Age Movement as closely as I have for the past 36 years, I have become increasingly of the opinion that the "image of the Beast" is that of the "Whole Earth."
Indeed, that image was discussed as pivotal in Marilyn Ferguson's New Age coming out party volume, THE AQUARIAN CONSPIRACY. Chapter 13 (page 405) of her book is even named "The Whole Earth Conspiracy." I found 20 detailed references in the volume to "Whole Earth" concerns. The New Age contempt for the beliefs and God of our Fathers is richly reflected in her prose:
Those of us born into the "broken-earth" paradigm have two choices: We can go to our graves with the old view, like the generations of die-hard scientists who insisted there were no such things as meteorites, or germs, or brainwaves, or vitamins-or, we can consign our old beliefs unsentimentally to the past and take up the truer, stronger perspective.
We can be our own children.
The "spiritual values" to which the New Age cum "cultural creatives" cum "Mindfulness" crowd subscribe is clearly more Earth oriented than Creator based:
It is not just water conservation, nor air protection that the New Agers seek. They also aggressively put forth an "Earth Charter" accompanied by an even more more blasphemous "Ark of the Covenant". Interestingly enough, they trotted that out for public display in a Vermont ceremony only two days before the "911" events of September 11, 2001 when the World Trade Center was destroyed. Al Gore had a large Whole Earth poster behind him often shown on TV as he was interviewed in his Vice-Presidential office during the William Jefferson Clinton presidency (1993-2001).Spiritual values, indeed, are at the base of much of the ecological concern in our time, a quickening sense of the whole earth, respect for the matrix of our evolution, the nature in which we are embedded. (Ferguson, page 357)
Big money and big names are associated with the Threshold Foundation. I have mentioned this organization in earlier posts, in views of Elaine DeWar's book CLOAK OF GREEN, and histories of the powerful convergences of the New Agers as they were seeking to implement their major tri-fold agenda. You will remember that it was James George's book ASKING FOR THE EARTH was largely about the Threshold Foundation, its pioneering conferences and its work. Marilyn Ferguson said of its goals in THE AQUARIAN CONSPIRACY (p. 410)
The book of Revelation is both feared and despised by the New Age/Globalist/Deep Ecology Movement. Indeed, an important New Ager who has lyingly denied being one, "Sir" Martin Palmer an adviser of note to Britain's Prince Philip as well as his boastful claims of heading a trillion dollar environmental fund (churches' moneys, no less) spent considerable ink faulting me for that in his 1993 bookThe Threshold Foundation, based in Switzerland, stated its intent to help ease the transition into a planetary culture, "foster a paradigm shift, a new model of the universe in which art, religion, philosophy, and science converge," and promote a wider understanding that "we exist in a cosmos whose many levels of reality form a single sacred whole.
Well, even a broken clock is right twice a day. The New Agers and their "environmental movement" compatriots/comrades in arms may well be right about "global warming" coming. They are, however, dead wrong about its causes. If they want to prevent "global warming" or a "New Ice Age" as still earlier books of theirs called for, perhaps they might want to give thanks rather than blasphemies to their Maker.

Merkel says EU can no longer rely on others -- Prophetic significance?
Angela Merkel has said that it is now clear that Europe can no longer rely on others and must take events into its own hands.
The ten toes of Daniel immediately come to my mind. Some were strong, some were weak. Some were clay, some were iron. They "would not cleave together." However, ultimately, per the prophecies of Daniel and Revelation events would bring them together and work to eliminate some that would even be pulled up by their roots. Which ones? We could be possibly viewing the fulfillment of those prophecies with recent European events.
It is not new for demands to be made that Europe take matters into its own hands. Javier Solana has long called for the consolidation of European military facilities into one shared operation. He did this repeatedly during his long tenures as head of NATO, then head of the Western European Union (a military federation), Secretary General of the European Union (1999 to 2010), and "High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy of the European Union (1999 to 2010).
In his "retirement" which appears to be as busy as his long-time official EU tenure, if not more so, he has continued to issue these calls and head critical EU military exploration operations. In 2015 he issued widely circulated "wake calls" for a common European Union defense union. He made that call from Berlin at the Friedrich Ebert Foundation where he went to present the CEP-FES report "More Union in European Defence,
Interestingly, the Friedrich Ebert Foundation's (in Germany called Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung) operations and interests do not appear to be purely European. A Google search shows a broad international, global governance scope of its operations. Such a search shows that it has a Washington, D.C. address of 1023 15th Street, NW. It also shows a USA phone number of 202-408-5444. It also shows offices in Ottawa, the capital city of Canada.
The USA based Brookings Institution, of which Javier Solana is also a Fellow recently released a list of Javier Solana's publications, book contributions, and articles. You may access it by clicking here, Given that the Brookings Institution is headed by former World Federalist head Strobe Talbott, it is more than fair to say that their interests are also global governance.
As regards the Friedrich Stiftung report delivered by Solana to the Berlin audience in 2015, it was the report of a CEPS (Centre for European Policy Studies) task force chaired by Javier Solana. Interestingly, the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (Germany) was one of the sources of funding for the 1995 Commission on Global Governance Report: Our Global Neighbourhood (page 376). The person credited with bringing the parties together to form that commission which included Maurice Strong was Willy Brandt (1913-1992), a former Chancellor of Germany (1968 to 1974) and leader of the Social Democratic Party of Germany from 1964 to 1987. Brandt also served as Mayor of Berlin for 9 years from 1957 to 1966.
I have always listened carefully when I heard the name Willy Brandt because Benjamin Creme made frequent laudatory mention of him in the November 4, 1981 speech I witnessed Creme making at the Unity Center for Holistic Living of Detroit's Unity Church. Creme was so very confident that the "Maitreya" appearance was near because of Willy Brandt's then ongoing advocacy for global unification..
Creme's first book, THE REAPPEARANCE OF THE CHRIST, had similar laudatory language about Willy Brandt (page 250):
The German connection and the Willy Brandt origins are interesting. Also making laudatory comments about Willy Brandt and his work leading to the formation of the Commission on Global Governance was former Russian President Mikhail Gorbachev in his 1987 book PERESTROIKA (page 206). Gorbachev's later book MANIFESTO FOR THE EARTH (2006) was even more militantly world government cum "Global Governance."This information not only confirms that unique events are takingplace in the world. but aJso emphasizes, once again, that changesmust occur naturally through the actions of man himself. Maitreyaand the Masters can direct spiritual energies to stimulate the developmentof all manner of plans, but it is up to man to react - and act.How concrete these reactions already are, can be deduced,amongst other things, from a report of the North-South Commission,of which 18 well known politicians under the chairmanship ofthe former West German Chancellor Herr Willy Brandt, are a part.Edward Heath, the former Prime Minister of Great Britain, andOlof Palme of Sweden, are members of this Commission.Maitreya's submission, that the world has only two choices,sharing or total destruction, is dramatically underlined by theCommission. The title of the Brandt report, "A Program for Survival,"makes that quite clear. . . .
According to Maitreya evangelist and former State Department official author Wayne Peterson in his 2003 book Extraordinary Times, Extraordinary Beings:
It is my present belief that what may be coming together is what I earlier wrote for this blogspot and for NewswithViews -- that this may well be a fulfillment or attempted fulfillment of the prophecy that 10 kings would come together and share power with the Beast for one hour -- a very short period of time, Biblically speaking where a day represents a year and 1260 days represents 3 1/2 years.There was one individual, however, who made it clear he had noproblem with the public knowing he had met the Christ. His name wasMikhail Gorbachev. Since he was now out of political power in hiscountry, I assume he felt he had nothing to fear or lose from such a disclosure.I was not surprised to learn this about Mr. Gorbachev, since I hadheard much earlier of his involvement with Maitreya from a Pentagonofficial. I had also heard, from people I place much confidence in, thatMrs. Gorbachev had been to India several times to see the Avatar SaiBaba. I find it interesting that the international press never questionedMr. Gorbachev more about his spiritual beliefs, since both he and hiswife became Christians during his term in office. From the freedom andopenness he introduced to the Soviet Union, it appeared obvious to methat he was being influenced by the Christ. Eventually, we will hearmore of this story and how the Soviet empire collapsed. (page 100)
Writing this, I took another peek at current news stories and found this startling headline: Is President Trump pushing Merkel to create a German Superpower?
To the New Agers I have long observed and studied, "crisis = opportunity". Could this be the crisis that triggers their window of global governance opportunity? Who knows?

World Wide Cyber attacks reported tonight -- be careful on your own system
I've been relatively offline the past two weeks, my main computer having once again suffered a major crash a week ago this past Monday. It was nearly 3 am, I had nearly finished an important Motion and Brief in Support for a client. I had reached the point where I knew it was time to go grab whatever sleep I could get if I was ever able ever to be functional again. There was not, in my then estimation, time to do more than to put the computer to sleep and resume in the morning. BIG MISTAKE. I wish I had at least emailed the material to myself -- that would have preserved it. The computer was also in the midst of an indexing operation. It may have also been time for one of those MicroSoft 10 early in the morning updates. I tried to resume from the computer sleep but could not. The computer hung for a half hour and then I received THE DREADED BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH -- a systems error.
My trusty computer technician was unavailable -- most of my friends like to consider me their personal computer "geek" anyway. I tried every option I could think of and was starting to think I wish I had trusted the cloud more -- I am still leery of dependence on the "clouds" -- MicroSoft's, Google's, Amazon's and everybody else's.
I relied on multiple hard drive backups -- and those I have, but I still lost some material including pet vaccination records, etc.
Most of my client data files had multiple backups elsewhere and were safe -- the brief I had worked on so hard that night was not. Mea culpa! My old research files and digitized information were multiply backed up and are safe.
The worst frustration is having to reinstall software and go through the Adobe Acrobat Professional processes again.
At any rate, that is why you didn't see too much of me on-line -- I'm still recovering from the disaster. My computer was running Windows 10 but as it is now a fine computer from a mechanical perspective, it had to be reformatted to its original Windows 8. Windows 8 had to go through approximately 180 upgrades to go to the necessary Windows 8.1 to receive Windows 10.
I suspect it was the Windows auto upgrade process that caused the system corruption -- that combined with my putting it to sleep. I wish I had first halted all operations and then shut it down for the night. I just do not know.
Fortunately, I found a computer with close (slightly less ram) to the same specifications that came with Windows 10 as its starting point. I've installed it as my backup system and the downed computer is now rerunning with Windows 10 -- which add injury to the insult, now required a $119 plus purchase of the operating system. The MicroSoft people were gracious enough and kept promising to help me with that problem, but somehow their calls they placed to me mysteriously went to busy signals. Finally, if I seriously wanted to be up and running enough, I purchased a copy of the operating system from the local Best Buy.
Well, the computers are great when they work. I am still going through the painful processes. I've had a habit of maintaining what I call a "desktop backtop" of scanned information. I will be busy for quite some time retrieving and OCR'ing those files.
Pray for me and my computer system. So much was happening that was so very relevant in the past two weeks -- I was able to talk a great deal about it on my Saturday morning radio program on www.TheMicroeffect.com network. I will be doing so upon arising later this morning.
I had enough backed up that it wasn't a total disaster, but not so much as should have been saved to prevent personal and family inconvenience. Benefit from my mistakes and thanks for sticking with me. A few of you have phoned -- I was happy to hear from you!

Did I Invent the New Age Movement? If so, I could surely make it go away! Ugly opposition from unexpected quarters to my long term labors
I once had a little respect for what I sometimes had opportunities to read from End Times Prophecy Report. No more! It is evidently edited/authored by one Jeremiah J. Jameson. Also listed as co-writers are an Elaine and Mondo Frazier. I've, to the best of my knowledge never met them nor otherwise heard from them. Those of you attempting to reach me know that I answer my phones and am, if able, willing to talk. I've spent most of my resources doing this work over the past 36 years (since discovering the subject in early 1981) and have refrained from begging or passing the hat for my work. I've refused to commercialize my work nor turn it into a cheap "ministry." I've shared my documentation freely with those who asked.
I've occasionally looked at End Times Prophecy Report. Today, I found something there that greatly saddened me. I reproduce it below as written. If they want to claim a copyright on their libelous piece, tough break. I claim fair use of the material.
Here it is:
THERE’S MORE THAN ONE WAY TO PROMOTE THE NEW AGENEW AGE END TIMES PERSECUTION: The Rider of the Pale Horse?So, I invented the New Age Movement? I wish I had -- if so, I could surely make it go away! I do not know if Mr. Jameson reached this conclusion on his own, if he listened to "Queeny Cameron" tapes. I will trust God to defend my work. I also trust those reading it fairly to do so.
Constance Cumbey has made a name for herself as an investigative writer whose claim to fame is exposing the secrets of the New Age. However, those who carefully read Cumbey immediately realize she offers something besides revelations of the New Agers–a great deal more.
Cumbey is a spinner of narratives for the same forces she purports to expose, either wittingly or not.
In her book, The Staging of the New Age Messiah, Ms. Cumbey went to a great deal of trouble to set up her narrative of a New Age conspiracy which is feverishly working to bring about a “messiah” the Bible calls the “man of sin.” She includes her reasons why this conspiracy should want to help fulfill the Bible’s prophecy–and make no mistake: there is a conspiracy. The Bible speaks of it; and, this cabal does ceaselessly labor to bring about the fulfillment of end times prophecy.
However, any reader hoping to get to the bottom of end times questions by consulting Cumbey will find the truth elusive at best. Cumbey weaves her narrative tapestry using strands of psychology, conspiracy, self-fulfilling prophecy and more importantly, the words of the New Age gurus themselves.
Which brings up a question.
How does one go about convincing the reader that the New Age is the epitome of deception (it is) while at the same time offering the reader what the New Age has publicly declared?
That’s the schtick of Constance Cumbey: trust me because I have the truth on the New Age from the lying mouths of the deceptive New Agers themselves. It’s a recipe for more deception and that’s what the reader is in for. Nevertheless, she still leaves out a great deal and what she doesn’t leave out, she conceals behind her narrative wall.
Exactly who desires the appearance of the man of sin, for what purposes and what the Bible says about it all, is covered in her noxious smog of yarns, cunningly devised fables and cleverly-constructed counterfeits. Those who take what she has written at face value will come away convinced that the New Age is a dangerous crew. And while that may be true on the surface, the New Age is NOT the mystery of iniquity but only a small cog in its great machinery of deception.
Again, the New Age is dangerous.
For a counterfeit.
“For the mystery of iniquity doth already work:”—2 Thessalonians 2:7One only has to remember that if the New Age did not exist, it would have to be invented by the mystery of iniquity. One also should keep in mind that once invented, the dangers of the New Age would have to be promoted.
Enter one Constance Cumbey, who has performed yeoman’s work in that regard.
Cumbey does give the reader some useful information–if the reader is able to extract such information from the narratives the author has used to frame it. One example is the following quote by New Ager, Peter LeMesurier.
“The new mission to the youth of the world, then, will be an international movement dedicated to spreading the already developing ideas and values upon which the New Age is to be founded.”This info is useful because the “new mission to the youth of the world” is a priority goal of the Dominionist strands of pseudo-Christianity which the mystery of iniquity depends upon to help introduce its “messiah.” Readers can see this developing in front of their eyes. It is not the New Age which is accomplishing this but the cults of Dominionism (including the New Apostolic Reformation and the International House of Prayer). By a great coincidence, the programs and ideas of these pseudo-Christian cults and those of the New Age are nearly identical.
Again, if the New Age did not exist, the mystery of iniquity would have had to invent it.
Cumbey devotes thousands of words to what the New Age has to say but precious few on what the Bible says on the same subject. For instance, she studiously avoids answering the logical questions: WHO is it that is interested in a coming Messiah? WHO does the Bible say is interested? WHO is it that desires a man (of sin) who will usher in a worldly kingdom? The reader will find none of these or other pertinent end times questions answered by the cunningly devised fables of Constance Cumbey.
One may read Cumbey for entertainment value without much harm. However, the reader of her work will be further from the truth after reading her spin on most of the topics she covers.
Our advice is the advice of Jesus, paraphrased.
“Take heed that Constance Cumbey does not deceive you.”
I knew I would take persecution for the work I've done and over the years, I've taken much. Some is more painful than others. This one hurts! If he did it for honest motive, I forgive him. Otherwise, may the Lord rebuke him.
Stay tuned, but hopefully not to Mr. Jameson's station!

Will President Trump save Europe by it uniting against him?
I wish Herb Peters were still here to discuss this one with me. I'm sure he might see possible prophetic significance in it. There is an organization in Europe that is the equivalent of the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations). It is called what else but "European Council on Foreign Relations." Names very familiar to the research I have done on the European Union for the past 22 years since 1995 and very familiar to Herb Peters on the research he did between 1999 and 2007 when he died are on its leadership lists. Here are both the link and a picture of a recent post of ECFR:
|Will Trump unite Europe against USA and onward and upward to "global governance"?|
Looking at what is occurring also brings to mind Bible passages that Herb Peters and I once discussed. There is a prophecy about the 10 toes of Daniel -- some strong, some weak. They would "not cleave together." But eventually, something was going to happen that the 10 kings would be brought together to fulfill a prophetic purpose -- "to hand their power over to the Beast and thus fulfill the words of this prophecy." Whoever it would be would be someone, per that prophecy, "to whom they would not give the honor of the Kingdom." He would come in peaceably, with the aid of a few, and obtain the Kingdom by flatteries. He would pull up three of the kingdoms that gave him power by their roots.
Strange words indeed? They don't look quite as strange in the light of recent events. The current oft repeated strategy of the global governance crowd is "integration" and surrender of sovereignty. That includes somebody Herb Peters and I long and carefully watched -- the author of the Western European bill introduced in the Year 2000 by Javier Solana -- "Recommendation 666," Indeed Javier Solana's original European Union job was created as Section 666 of the European Union coded documents. That job with the startling number was created for the Europa Code in December 1998 by the Vienna Council in session at that time.
Javier Solana "retired" from his 11 year held European Union post in 2010 after repeated attempts to gain European ratification of the new European Union constitution were repeatedly defeated. Only after Javier Solana announced he would be "retiring" did the necessary ratification occur in Ireland. Javier Solana "stepped down" and a lesser qualified candidate took the job with the very high salary that had obviously been created for Solana. She was Catherine Ashton, a woman lacking prior diplomatic and elected political experience. She held the job for the five year term. When her term was up, a probably more qualified person was appointed -- another woman -- Federica Mogherini, who had served as Foreign Minister of Italy. I will confess to personally liking what little I know about Ms. Mogherini, if for no other reason, her obvious hard work and her dedication to freeing Miriam Ibrahim of Somalia, a Christian sentenced to death by the Somalian regime for apostasy from Islam by marrying a Christian. Ms. Mogherini and her then boss, Prime Minister Rinzo of Italy worked tirelessly and successfully for her release from the shackles and death sentence. Federica Mogherini was pictured in the media carrying Miriam Ibrahim's small son off the plane the Italian government had dispatched to transport her to freedom.
Far from "retiring," Javier Solana has continued to work and campaign hard for global governance and for European ascendancy. He serves on the board of ECFR, heads the Esade Center for Global Economy and Geopolitics, and advises on European affairs in many matters. In my observation of Solana in the past, he so very often, using the vernacular, "sucked up" to USA politicians, particularly Presidential ones. However, he has not done so with President Trump whom he continues to describe as a "despicable person."
Looking at current events, I have seen some other things I would have loved to discuss with Herb Peters. Javier Solana's former "hatchet woman," Cristine Gallach is now the Under Secretary of the United Nations for Communications and Public Information.
There are times that I think I may have paid too much attention to Dr. Solana, but once again, I'm not so sure.

Cliff Kincaid on "The Catholic Conspiracy"
I watched the interview and then phoned Cliff Kincaid to see if he would join me on this week's internet radio program at www.TheMicroEffect.com. Attorney Yore believes that there was "Regime Change" in the Vatican. She has made Vatican trips as part of her child advocacy, anti-human trafficking career. She made observations about new Vatican directions that were disturbing to her.
We'll talk to Cliff Kincaid about this in the morning. I will also consider bringing Attorney Elizabeth Yore on as a guest in the near future. I've had my own concerns about what appeared to me as something that might have been something of a coup d'etat in the Vatican. Pope's don't usually quit on 2 weeks notice -- it is normally a job for life.
Please join us in the morning -- it should be an interesting program. You can call in live by dialing 208-935-0094. We did a rerun last week of the program as I was a delegate to the Michigan Republican Convention in Lansing, Michigan and unable to do the live broadcast. My favorite guest hosts were unavailable, but God willing, we are here this week.
Tune in and stay tuned! I personally would sure like to know what Susanna's take is on this Cliff Kincaid news.

The Movie TORCHBEARER is MUST VIEWING!
My husband who passionately (so far) professes dislike for Donald J. Trump and Steven Bannon asked me about a movie he said he understood had been made with PAT ROBERTSON and Bannon. I did an internet search. The movie instead was made with Christian duckhunter PHIL ROBERTSON. The movie completely destroys allegations that Bannon is "anti-Semitic," "racist," "Nitzschean". As I never watched Phil Robertson and his reality show before. I had no idea of the depth of the convictions of both Phil Robertson and Bannon.
The movie is COMPELLING and FACTUAL. I recommend it to all!
I ordered my copy at a very reasonable price from AMAZON. The link gives you other options. Here is an article explaining the movie and the reasons for its making. Having watched it, I'm sleeping easier at night knowing Mr. Bannon is advising Mr. Trump.
Watch it -- PLEASE!

BLOCK CHAIN TECHNOLOGY CONCERNS
Among the headlines on MicroSoft news this morning was a GUARDIAN one that might have been overlooked by many in the heat of the Trump inauguration hoopla:
"SWIFT adopts Blockchain as global payment initiative"

As we exit Obama Administration, concerns grow
An English paper, The Sun, carried the following headline:
US sends special forces to RUSSIAN BORDER as Nato is poised to strike back against Vladimir Putin’s ‘aggression’I note here that I'm not familiar enough with The Sun to vouch for either its editorial policy or its news accuracy. We have English readers. Maybe some of them can fill in my blanks on that news source.
"The British Union of Fascists (BUF), later renamed the British Union of Fascists and National Socialists in 1936, was a political party of the 1930s in the United Kingdom. The party was formed on October 1, 1932 by ex-Conservative Party MP, and Labour government minister Sir Oswald Mosley after meeting Italian fascist leader Benito Mussolini in January 1932. The party was a union, composed of several smaller Fascist parties including the New Party which Mosley founded a year earlier.
"Mosley instituted a black uniform, gaining the party the nickname Blackshirts. The BUF was anti-communist and protectionist. It supported the replacement of parliamentary democracy with a system of elected executives with jurisdiction over their own industries - something similar to the corporatism of the Italian fascists. Although unlike Italy the British Fascist Corporatism would remain a democracy, replacing the House of Lords with elected executives drawn from major industries, clergy and representatives of the colonies. The House of Commons was to be reduced in size to allow for a faster, less 'factionist democracy'. Many of the BUF's members were drawn from aristocratic and military families and included celebrated military scientist J.F.C. Fuller.The BUF had the most developed political programme and ideology of any fascist movement, laid out in such publications as Tomorrow We Live, and The Coming Corporate State.Most of the BUFs policies were based around isolationism, an economic policy whereby Britain would trade only within the British empire as would the nations within the empire in a similar manner to the United States of America, the main attraction to this is that it would separate the British economy from the falls and fluxes of the world market Great Depression and prevent the loss of industrial production within Britain from the influence of "... labour the east, paid a third of our wages and working for ten hours a day.", and "Cheap slave competition from abroad." These were referring to the rise of western backed mass production in Indo-China similar to what is said about Chinese labour today.The position of the BUF on the Jewish Question was initially similar to that of Mussolini, however violent attacks and agitations by numerous Jews (imported in from Eastern Europe), trying to destroy the party and drag Britain into WWII for the interests of their tribe meant increased hostility. They were eventually banned from joining in 1933."
I was struck by the similarities between much of what was advocated by the British Fascists of the late 1930's, early 1940s and what is happening today -- much of what the traumatized workers displaced by globalization are hoping for from the Trump Administration. It was the worst of times then. It is looking more and more like the worst of times now. The various fascist movements that in World War II were aligned with Hitler's Germany was then (both pre and post WWII) used as a rationale for world government/global governance. The rise of nationalism in Europe and here in the USA is similarly pointed to vigorously by those now urging "global governance," i.e. Javier Solana, Strobe Talbott,These arguments are being made now with equal gusto. The Trump election, Britain's BREXIT, and related developments are being used as calls to quickly salvage globalization and speed up global governance. Within the last 3 months (October 19, 2016), an article co-written by Javier Solana and Strobe Talbott entitled "The Decline of the West and How to Stop It" was published by the New York Times.
I keep remembering the old New Age maxim that "Crisis = Opportunity." I cannot help but wonder if the Hegelian dialectics of pitting both sides against the Middle ("radical center" perhaps, to put it in New Age terminology) is at play.
Again, may the Lord give us and our leaders wisdom and May the Lord Help us All!

Last acts of Obama administration -- throw Israel to wolves and incite war with Russia?
President Eisenhower was succeed by the candidate of the opposite party by Democrat John Fitzgerald Kennedy. That was 1960. I was a Junior in high school. I do not remember public rancor and anger during that transition, even though Richard Nixon, Eisenhower's Vice President had a surprise loss. The Kennedy years were brief with his tragic assassination in Dallas on November 22, 1963. He was succeeded by Lyndon Baines Johnson, his Vice President. Johnson was re-elected over Barry Goldwater in 1964. The years to follow were tumultuous and very reminiscent of what is happening now. Lyndon Johnson was exceedingly unpopular among many Democrats and did not seek re-election for what would have in effect been a third term in 1968. Richard Nixon instead was elected. Although the times were turbulent and the Cold War was on, I do not recall an ugly transition period -- at least in my then perception.
President Nixon was re-elected in 1972. There was turbulence, but that turbulence seemed to stem more from Nixon's insecurities, the ongoing Vietnam War, and what was shaping up that we came to know as "Watergate." Gerald Ford succeeded fallen and disgraced former Vice President Spiro Agnew in that office and then became President of the United States upon President Nixon's resignation in disgrace. Although times were turbulent indeed, I do not recall an ugly transition period when Jimmy Carter took office as President of the United States (POTUS). I do not recall, however, the December 1976 through January 1977 being an ugly or tumultuous period in terms of the Presidential succession.
Carter was a one-termer, having been defeated in 1980 by Ronald Reagan. Although Democrats were saddened at the loss, I do not recall the transition period being an ugly one. Ronald Reagan after serving two terms was succeeded by his Vice President George H. W. Bush who served only one term as President after having served two full terms as Vice President. William Jefferson Clinton was elected President. Although the Republicans were disappointed, I recall the inauguration and transition period proceeding smoothly and cooperatively.
There was real turbulence in 2000 when Vice Presidential Albert Gore and George W. Bush's races collided. There were angry and politicized Supreme Court challenges that fell in favor of George W. Bush. Nevertheless, the transition proceeded smoothly despite the rancor.
Then we came to 2008 when Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton had a tumultuous primary race where Obama prevailed. Obama was elected President over John McCain his first term and over Mitt Romney his second term. The Bush-Obama transition went smoothly.
Now we come to the very last days of the Obama Administration. Suddenly, globally precipitous moves are made by the outgoing administrtion, obviously designed to make the transition anything but smooth. President Obama, in his declining days, it appears, has made war on both Israel and Russia. I don't get classified briefings, nor do I know what the full facts are, but it is a safe bet that both countries have been actively spying on the other -- but the accusation that Hillary's defeat blamed first on FBI director James Comey and now on "the Russians" is unique in our history, at least as my personal recall goes.
It is my impression for better or for worse that what Barack Obama is doing is working actively to prevent a smooth transition of power and to create a far more dangerous world for Israel and for the United States than existed before. The actions against Russia are provocative to say the least.
My prayer is that Russia does not take the bait! May the Lord help us all!

Holiday dangers for American churches
Quoting from its article, we read: The Islamic State is urging its followers to attack U.S. churches and has published names and addresses of thousands of prospective targets, according to a report in the news website Vocativ.
"That the Jews should be rid of fear is of majorimportance; that they should know and recognise the Christas the Messiah, and therefore find for themselves that thereligion they follow is destructive of many of the finervalues, is likewise of major importance; that orthodoxJudaism, along with all the other faiths, should realisethat there is no desire to make them Christian (in theordinary sense of the term), but that they should all movetOWards some loving synthesis and eliminate their mutualantagonisms and rivalries is equally urgent, and this statementincludes the Christian faiths as well. That the Vaticancease its political scheming, its exploitation of the massesand its emphasis upon ignorance is as important; that themanifold divisions of the Protestant churches be bridged isimperative. If none of these things happen, humanity isheaded towards a religious war which will make the pastwar appear like child's play; antagonisms and hatreds willembroil entire populations and the politicians of all thenations will take full advantage of the situation to precipitatea war which may well prove the end of human history."
It looks like that religious war is here -- or at least credibly threatened.

Democratic Party McCarthyism (Joseph -- not Eugene) for the 21st CenturyI
On the European front, there was deadly terrorism both in Germany and in Turkey. The Russian ambassador to Turkey was publicly assassinated and all could view that event on televised video recordings. Just as the Democratic Party accusations of Russian connections with the GOP remind me of the McCarthyism of the 1950s, today's events ominously remind me of the start of World War I and the Sarajevo assassination that triggered the lineup of European powers against each other.
Times are turbulent indeed!
I'm old enough to remember the unpleasant days from my childhood when the "Cold War" started, Joseph McCarthy accused practically everyone and their brother of having Moscow "Red" links, and "Russian connections." Back in those days, it was often the Republicans making the charges against the Democrats that they called "fellow travelers" to alleged Communist influencers.
Well, here we are in the 21st century, nearing the end of the second decade of same, no less. The current administration of the United States Executive Branch, i.e. President Barack Obama was shown during the latter days of his first term assuring the Russians that he could work much more closely with them once he had been re-elected.
And so there was "peace on earth" or so it illusorily seemed.
All that appeared to change in my eyes once Barack Obama who once espoused marriage as between a man and woman then publicly "evolved" his view to one of "marriage equality", i.e. man marries man, woman marries woman. The winter Olympics were set to be held in southern Russia. The conservative Russian Orthodox community promoted laws passed by the Russian government outlawing "homosexual propaganda." The United States sent openly "gay" members to Russia to represent the United States government in the Olympic doings. Vladimir Putin said to the USA and to all that "gay" athletes were welcome to come but "please leave our children alone."
Maybe coincidence, maybe not, but suddenly the "Cold War" was back on and heating up at that. EXCEPT this time the accusers were generally Democrats accusing Republicans and Evangelicals of being "Russian sympathizers." At an annual Press Association "roast", Barack Obama cynically stated that conservatives liked Vladimir Putin. Perhaps he was referring to some of Pat Buchanan's public observations -- perhaps something else. After all, I don't get "classified briefings."
That the intelligence services of the USA appear at least superficially to this observer to have been to at least some extent "politicized", I am more than skeptical about the late claims reached by "consensus" (mostly Democrats with dissenting Republicans). That John McCain is angered and perhaps holding a grudge against Donald Trump is understandable. Senator Lindsay Graham is no great surprise either.
Suddenly, Barack Obama demands an investigation to be completed before his rapidly expiring term of office ends. And now today, we read from an on-line news source, "The Hill" in major news presentations from MicroSoft, the following:
At least 10 members of the Electoral College are asking U.S. intelligence officials for more information on ongoing investigations surrounding President-elect Donald Trump's relationship with Russia.The electors, including the daughter of Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Christine Pelosi, wrote an open letter to Director of National Intelligence James Clapper asking for the information ahead of their Dec. 19 meeting to vote for the next president."The Electors require to know from the intelligence community whether there are ongoing investigations into ties between Donald Trump, his campaign or associates, and Russian government interference in the election, the scope of those investigations, how far those investigations may have reached, and who was involved in those investigations," the letter read. "We further require a briefing on all investigative findings, as these matters directly impact the core factors in our deliberations of whether Mr. Trump is fit to serve as President of the United States."Nine democrats and one Republican signed the letter."Separate from Mr. Trump's own denials of Russian involvement in the election, the confirmed communication between Trump's aides and those associated with the Russian election interference activity raise serious concerns that must be addressed before we cast our votes," the letter read.
I, for one, smell a big, fat rat? How about the rest of you?

Please go vote!
THIS IS THE EVE OF THE USA'S PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION -- V - O - T - E
We are at the end of what has been a tumultuous campaign season. If anybody had told me a year ago that Donald Trump would be the presidential nominee for the Republicans, I would then have proclaimed them "crazy." He was not my personal choice for nominee. But, he is the Republican nominee and has proclaimed his own judicial nominations would be for judges who follow law as written -- not as they wish to write it. Given Hillary Clinton's refusal to denounce partial-birth abortion and her enthusiastic endorsement of the totality and beyond of the LGBT agenda, I see no choice but to vote for Donald Trump and I will be casting my vote for him -- Donald J. Trump.
Sadly, nobody is perfect and sometimes we do need to choose between evils. Donald Trump has demonstrated his human flaws to be certain, but it is my belief that he does not possess what I perceive as Hillary Clinton's outright hostility to Christians possessing millennia long traditional values on marriage, family, gender, etc., etc.
For sure it is not an easy time to be a Christian in our society. That was clearly and repeatedly prophesied in Scripture. But to take an expression from the old civil rights movement -- we have to "keep on keeping on."
Please -- go vote -- you have only yourself to blame if you fail to exercise that precious constitutionally guaranteed right!
