I know this is illusion (Fake) but this is as good as it gets

Things I learn from Commerce: Part of what I do is consult for companies in distress. Work with banks. Work with creditors and debtors. Work with lawyers. Here's some things I have once more learned

Most people are unwilling to stand up for themselves in the face of injustice.

Bullies win because cowardice is taught in our schools.

Lawyers who know the law use it to avoid being ethical

Banks are bureaucratic nightmares without the ability to make a decision up or down the line.

Advice from an expert if useless if no one takes recommend action.

No good thing happens once lawyers get involved.

Track the money in every reveals a lot.

Courage is everything, fearlessness is it's own reward.

Confront the dishonest, the crooked, the liars, the manipulators. Be a thorn in their side till they come clean.

Nothing succeeds like persistence..wear them down. But never ever cut off the conversation. Stay on them. Don't break the chain. They will come to understanding if you stay with it long enough.

If you are on the side of right, nothing else matters.

A fresh trained eye on every situation offers up right answers to hard questions. You learn more by asking questions than by talking.

Most people cannot handle the truth... living as a prisoner of hope in illusion is much better for many. Once you face facts you can find your way out.

Come to think of it, these are things that many politicians need to learn...
As Seen on the Five. BUT, this isn't just about a love interest, it is about friendships as well. I have to tell you that many of these things apply to people that I find myself keeping my distance from. I am at the same time very happy I have so many that don't fit ANY of these. I also take it as caution NOT to be like this.

5 Signs You’re in a Toxic Relationship

“Toxic” doesn’t only entail obvious damage like physical abuse, stealing, or name-calling. It also represents all the internal turmoil that results from an unhealthy relationship. I’d like to share how I learned to recognize when I was in a relationship that was not suitable for me.

These are 5 signs that you are in a toxic relationship:

1. It seems like you can’t do anything right.
The other person constantly puts you down as not good enough. They mock your personality, and you feel ashamed most of the time. You only feel pardoned when you take on the traits of the person doing the condemning or judging.

2. Everything is about them and never about you.
You have feelings, too, but the other person won’t hear them. You’re unable to have a two-sided conversation where your opinion is heard, considered and respected. Instead of acknowledging your feelings, they battle with you until they get the last word.

3. You find yourself unable to enjoy good moments with this person.
Every day brings another challenge. It seems as though they are always raising gripes about you. Their attempt to control your behavior is an attempt to control your happiness.

4. You’re uncomfortable being yourself around that person.
You don’t feel free to speak your mind. You have to put on a different face just to be accepted by that person. You realize you don’t even recognize yourself anymore, and neither do your closest friends and family.

5. You’re not allowed to grow and change.
Whenever you aim to grow and improve yourself, the other person responds with mockery and disbelief. There is no encouragement or support for your efforts. Instead, they keep you stuck in old judgments insisting that you will never be any different than you are now.
Easy to imagine, really
An upside down world
 I postulated that they had missed North Dakota. There may not be much climatologically speaking that augers FOR North Dakota, but the sunsets there are beyond belief. Click on the link, that is the light show God puts on almost every night on the prairie.
I thought I was alone in this. I have memories of the womb. Warm, dark but not without light. Soft. Comfortable. Safe. Sound of mom's heart. I always thought maybe I imagined it, but it's very real. I used to dream about that place. Now it turns out... it was all true. Read this. Now you know more about me than you thought you would. You also know how important it is to care for that CHILD inside, prophesy and love over ... it's not a fetus... he or she is a child. I remember.

Becky Fischer
Did you know that Newborns remember words they heard in the womb? That's according to researchers at the University of Helsinki. I have had numerous parents relate stories to me of their children saying things that were clear memories of being in the womb.

In visiting about this with some friends, the Lord brought back a memory I had personally that I never knew what to do with. I can still see it vividly in my mind. I never knew if it was a dream or reality.

I have a clear memory of looking out towards this round dome-like "wall" that was yellowish/peachy colored wall and clearly there was a light behind it on the other side of where I was looking. In the wall (or partition) there were what looked like little blood vessels running throughout. After these conversations, I am convinced it was me looking out through my mother's womb. Can't prove it however...

If this is true for me and many other children...if this report from Helsinki is true...what does this say to us about the words we speak over our unborn children?

Beyond that, should we be strategic in even speaking the word of God over them, prophesying over them in the womb, and singing Christ-centered songs over them in the womb? What would that do to the spiritual development our our children? Would it give them a spiritual "head start" for their lives?

Your thoughts?
This one missed pretty far out, but what is more disturbing is the one that passed recently only 17,000 miles above the earth...NOW THAT is a near miss in space terms. Think 23,560, that's the height of our communication sats. YOWSER... about the size of 3 football fields. Think Detroit...gone...wait...maybe that's the don't hate me for being in bad taste. But it was bigger than we need to have hit us just right now.
Just in case there are a few Obama Supporters who think this debt issue is all Bush's fault, who think that this was much ado about nothing, who have bought the big lie that he has cut the DEFICIT in half (by increasing the debt of course) this chart if you can understand it shows exactly who is at fault for taking our nation to the brink and will again till we go over the edge. But that has been his plan, that's how dictators take power. Happened in Germany, happening again.
Walter Myers III
As I have been saying since Obama got into the race. The SOLE reason Democrats wanted such an unaccomplished man was because he was black and they could rally the media and the entertainment industry to make calls of racism at each and every turn regardless of its truth. It was brilliant, actually, but it has poisoned race relations I believe forever. Absolutely nothing good is going to come out of these types of tactics. The Democrats have placed a permanent scar on the psyche of America, and has divided this country so badly I do fear we will not remain a republic much longer. I believe that 50 years ago people will look back on this time and wonder how the first black President ended up being the catalyst that destroyed the nation's fabric. America, in my view has seen its best days, and has changed forever from what we once knew it to be.

Obama and the Democrats have permanently divided this country to the point where people actually think Republicans are a bunch of racists, traitors, terrorists, bomb strappers, and a whole litany of pejoratives. You see it in the news each and every day, and you can't deny it. It is the most shameful thing I have ever seen in life and Democrats revel in it, somehow thinking some good will come out of division. Well no good ever came out of division and avarice.

Thank you, Robert Redford, for letting us know just how low even you would go, a once proud actor. I hope you're happy with what you have done. As a black man, I think you're disgusting and I will NEVER see another movie you have made or rent your old movies. You're the same as all of the other white liberal entertainers who actually have a low opinion of blacks and are hurting us while you feign that you are helping us. But you're not just hurting us, you're hurting everyone with such false and contemptible announcements such as this. At least we knew clearly who our enemy was with racist Democrats 50 years ago.

This whole Obama and racism thing is just terrible, terrible for our country. We will never be the same.

I have been listening to the radio taking calls on this. Funny Stuff. A couple of alternative names have been suggested..
Washington Red Inks
Washington Kickbacks (I actually like that)
Washington Lampreys, they are a bloodsucking parasite... seems about right
I am taking other names... Ideas?
This isn't relevant any more to me, but if you are trying ..... this might be news you can use.

“Strange Fire” by John MacArthur is basically an attack on anything and everything related to the Charismatic Movement and the various movements descended from it, as if the whole of it were composed of one monolithic set of doctrines and practices that all of us espouse. It invalidates anything that smacks of the supernatural or of emotion freely expressed in God’s presence. MacArthur pours his vitriol – and I mean vitriol -through the filter of his own prejudices and theological presuppositions in a way that blinds him to the differences between the various movements within the charismatic stream and causes him to deny the existence of the majority of us who do not agree with or practice the abuses he objects to. In doing so he ignores or reinterprets, through very poor exegesis, the clear teaching of much of the Scripture as well.

Ironically, as he formulates his attack, he builds upon concerns that many of us in the movement share. I share his concern over abuses in prophetic ministry, aberrant doctrines, fallen leaders, manipulative fundraising, acting out in fleshly ways that are not of the Spirit and fakery on the part of some associated with the movement. As an insider, I confront these things as well, seeking what is genuine and calling for biblical grounding. MacArthur commits grievous error, however, in claiming that these abuses characterize the movement as a whole. They do not.

For example, I am a charismatic and have been from my childhood in the 1950s. I am also a graduate of Fuller Theological Seminary, 1976. Consequently, I have been steeped in exegetical principle and the doctrines of the historic faith from a time when Fuller described itself as “reformed” in its theology. Consequently, I do not embrace aberrant theologies. Reading McArthur, you’d think that all charismatics espouse prosperity teaching. We do not. You’d think that we are all Word of Faith adherents when, in fact, they constitute a small minority and promote a doctrine many of us oppose. I actually wrote a rebuttal of those two doctrines in my own book, “Purifying the Prophetic”.

On a side note, in his introduction MacArthur asserts that Fuller Theological Seminary abandoned the doctrine of biblical inerrancy in the early 1970s. I was there from 1973 until my graduation in 1976 and I can state categorically that Fuller at that time held to inerrancy. MacArthur is wrong on many fronts and should be held accountable for what is either blatant intellectual dishonesty or just inexcusably sloppy research.

In reading MacArthur uncritically, you’d think that we all focus in unbalanced ways on manifestations and behavioral aberrations like barking and animal sounds. We do not. Over the years, I’ve spent at least a cumulative 5 months in meetings at the Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship, now known as Catch the Fire, serving for 14 years in leadership as a regional coordinator and international council member. Never in all that time did I hear an animal sound. I think he must be reacting to what he has heard from other revival critics, rather than his own eyewitness experience. This, again, constitutes intellectual dishonesty and sloppy research.

He states, “I’ll start believing that the truth prevails in the charismatic movement when I see the leaders, who are the people who are most exposed to its principles, looking more like Jesus Christ.” Yes, some very few of us have been guilty of seeking or walking in anointing without character. Our exercise of church discipline in response to their failings has often been deficient. Tragically, some of those failures have been seen in people with prominent ministries and as a result we have all had to wear the mud we didn’t deserve.

The truth is that the foundation of the Toronto Blessing, for instance, was and is the kind of transformation of character to conform to the image of Jesus (Romans 8:29) that has produced people like Rolland and Heidi Baker. In their ministry in Mozambique, not only are many thousands of orphans given homes and countless thousands of hungry fed, but thousands of churches are planted, hundreds of thousands come to Jesus, the dead are raised, the sick are healed and the lame walk. The vast majority of lesser known leaders in the renewal go quietly about the business of doing those same things in the places where they labor all over the world. The fallen leaders and those operating with less than the character of Jesus to whom John MacArthur actually objects are not my leaders and never were for a majority of us.

In bashing spiritual gifts MacArthur characterizes the gift of tongues, for instance, as “babble”, relegating it to the flames of “strange fire”, seemingly ignoring the clear teaching of Scripture on the various uses of it. It was evangelistic on the day of Pentecost, but Paul in I Corinthians 14 clearly defines its use in corporate prayer (with interpretation) and for private personal edification, saying, “I wish that you all spoke in tongues.” The 120 did in fact speak in tongues on the day of Pentecost. Paul did in fact franchise its disciplined use in gatherings in Corinth and clearly described it as praying with an unfruitful mind for personal edification. Nowhere does the Scripture say that any of the supernatural gifts would cease.

MacArthur cries out against people falling into senseless trances but seems to miss that this very same thing happened to Daniel who broke into physical trembling when the angel touched him after he awakened from what was clearly a trance state. He seems to miss that the priests at the dedication of Solomon’s temple couldn’t stand up under the weight of the presence of the glory of God. And didn’t the disciples appear to be drunk on the Day of Pentecost? Speaking in foreign languages would have attracted little attention in a city where many thousands of Jews from different regions of the world had gathered for the feast, so it had to be their drunken behavior under the power of the Spirit that drew the comments. Through the filter of his cessationist theology, when these things happen today MacArthur calls them “strange fire”.

This book isn’t about strange fire. It’s about putting the fire out.
I didn't get this right... pretty good
What is your answer?
This is not fair. It's wrong to put these 2 pictures side by side. Cold. Cruel. Sadistic. I mean, take a good long look at Kelly. Long look. Then, quickly look at the Other head. It's like some eye test. You can't hold your focus for more than a half second after you've stared at Megyn Kelly for 5. Nasty stuff. Not very cricket of you I must say! I don't know -- People like watching a beautiful, intelligent (she's a lawyer), heterosexual woman (who is a mother and a wife) who loves our country versus an angry, leftist 'intellectual' lesbian who hates the U.S....... Shocked, Shocked I tell you.
The answer may surprise you -->
I'm doing my part
If this happens, first the bureaucracy needs to be brought into court, anyone who double dipped like this, if they do not return the money should be arrested for theft. IF YOU OF I DID THIS in the private sector do you think you could get away with this? Federal has become a Stichwort for corruption.
Go ahead and enjoy your sea bass... there is nothing wrong with it. BUT if you don't want it, MORE FOR ME.... MAN, scientific ignorance costs us all
I guess Obamacare isn't as great and affordable as we were told. The system is full of glitches and the enrollment process is a nightmare. They are asking people to give up their personal information on a system that experts are saying is extremely outdated. Typical of everything the government runs, complete dysfunction after spending 3 years setting it up. The webpage gets just as much traffic as the healthcare exchange site and they seem to manage it just fine. With the amount of tax dollars that have been spent on this monstrosity of a law, you would think they could do better. Only 36,000 Americans enrolled in the first week. It's pretty comical when you compare that to Grand Theft Auto selling 16,000,000 copies in it's first week

~Mentally Emancipated
For this we paid 650 Million Dollars? This is another fine mess you got us into BHO
You do realize don't you that all that information you give to the "Navigators" who are supposed to help you with Obamacare have never been vetted. Some are criminals. Some are Acorn. Most left wing idiots who have no scruples at all. That's who is collecting your social security number and birth date. Not that any crook who want to steal your identity would need that...LOL. No screening. Political patronage. Maybe that's why it doesn't work....maybe?
The Obama administration, which has fired no one over scandals such as its Fast and Furious Mexican gun-running operation, its criminal negligence in the terrorist attack on our Benghazi diplomatic mission, or the use of the IRS to target and intimidate political foes, seems to have a curious obsession lately about ethics and competence in the U.S. military.
Don't even THINK of looking down your nose or tisk tisk tisk this. We in the USA are just as bad and worse. I won't post it, it's too horrid to consider, but the story regarding dead baby, shopping bag and Victoria's secret says to me, we...See More

October 18th - President Obama comparing the Obamacare rollout mess to Apple: “Apple rolled out a new mobile operating system, and within days they found a glitch, so they fixed it. I don’t remember anybody suggesting Apple should stop selling iPhones or iPads or threatening to shut down the company if they didn’t.” Sure O, Apple’s exactly like Obamacare except for: a) You don’t pay a penalty if you don’t buy an iPhone b) You’re not required to first register with Apple to see what iPhones cost c) iPhones don’t cost many times more than promised d) You don’t pay for iPhone extras you don’t need e) You don’t pay more so others can have free iPhones f) Unlike Obamacare, Apple’s ordering system doesn’t use 10-year-old technology (from USA Today) g) Apple suppliers get the correct info: “Health Website Woes Widen as Insurers Get Wrong Data” (WSJ) h) Apple tests its systems & products for over a week: “Troubled Obamacare Website wasn’t tested until a week before launch” (WA Examiner) & finally i) Apple isn’t run by clueless government morons!!!

This is what we used to call a USEFUL IDIOT

A Complete New Faith Being Pushed On America -- At Taxpayer Expense --- by Bob Larimer

I think that a man and a woman are fundamentally different in the way that they think, in the way they respond emotionally, in their physical features and capabilities, in the way that they relate to others.
I believe that a young school boy who wiggles, plays hard and has difficulty concentrating is a boy, not a specimen who needs 'medication' to force him to act like a school girl.
I think that the Constitution was written to deliberately restrain the federal government, to maintain a small government and encourage an independently-living, free population and to prevent the merging of political power into one all-powerful, irresistable entity. 
I think that gun ownership and the freedom of the everyday citizen to carry firearms are specifically guaranteed in the Second Amendment. 
I think that an unborn child is the most helpless and voiceless person among us, and that to kill that child is to ignore everything that is really important about being a human being, and about being an American.
I think that homosexuality is a sexual preference that defies the way male and female body parts were designed, and that though it may be allowed in society,  it should never have been given political power to silence or punish opposition or to indoctrinate other people's public school children, and that it should never have been lumped in with genuine 'Equality.' 
I think that without economic freedom a citizen does not really possess any other real freedom, and that the only precedent for 'equitable redistribution of wealth and resources' is socialist or communist rule which has proven to be vicious and lethal to citizens, and those who push for 'income equality' or 'redistribution' in our society are really advocating the death of free enterprise and private property.
I believe that a citizen who works hard and gains success and wealth should be allowed to make his own decisions about spending, whether on his own family or others, and should not be punished by being stripped of his earnings and forced to 'donate' to the swiftly-growing, willfully idle segment of his society.
I think that a nation's borders, language and culture distinguish it from all other nations and that to willfully dilute or purposely dismantle any of these features is to inevitably dismantle the nation. 
I think that teaching other people's school children to 'celebrate diversity' by elevating other nations to America's unique status is to rob children of their real heritage and to actively agitate against our nation's supremacy and survival. 
I think that if any of our laws are to be respected and obeyed by a self-governing citizenry, then foreign citizens who illegally slip inside our borders are law-breakers by specific Constitutional definition, that they should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, that they should be permanently deported as swiftly as possible, and that politicians or officials who can be shown to have enabled these lawbreakers to remain in the country and commit further crimes, and to defraud America's educational, medical and economic institutions should be removed from power and forced to pay restitution to taxpayers. 
I think that when a president uses 'executive orders' and other overt and covert end-runs around the separate powers of Congress and the courts, he should be held accountable and impeached.
I think that when a president participates in a political cover-up such as the Benghazi massacre, Operation Fast and Furious or I.R.S. oppression of law-abiding citizens based on political motivation, that president should be removed from office.
I think that when a president authorizes the sale or transfer of weapons of war to 'moderate Al Qaeda forces' and provides these under cover of 'helping moderate rebels' in a foreign nation (Syria), he is directly supplying aid and comfort to a stated foreign enemy and should therefore be tried for Treason. 
I think that when a dominant media culture quietly supports a president in giving aid and comfort to our enemies, in weakening and punishing our military and veterans and in attacking innocent citizens because of their dissenting opinions or affiliation with legitimate organizations or movements such as the TEA Party, such news organizations should no longer receive news consumer's trust or support and should be ignored for the cynical, dishonest propagandists that they are. 
I think that Christianity, as taught in the Holy Bible, is a belief system which elevates humanity, encourages peace and understanding, changes human hearts for the good, spontaneously stimulates charitable giving and rescue operations both at home and abroad, and is a stabilizing and civilizing influence on society.
I think that Islam is a cult of death that is almost solely responsible for all modern, worldwide, significant terrorist attacks, that encourages Koran-approved lying (al Taqqiya) in order to fool and weaken non-muslims, that has never swerved from its original goals of forcing a global Caliphate on all citizens everywhere on the planet, that has infiltrated and influenced the present administration and that will, if allowed, force more and more of its beliefs on free citizens in local communities in America, exemplified by Shariah banking, Shariah law, Sharia dress, Shariah accommodation in public schools, and open hostility to traditional American values and beliefs.
I believe that America's educational institutions, both public school and university level, have been infiltrated by a one-way belief system (Humanism) that is systematically purging Christian faith from our nation in favor of a new, politically correct, secularized, government-dependent belief system that will grow and perpetuate the elitist, Ruling Class approach to governing society.
Finally, I believe that because I believe these things, I am no longer welcome in my own country.
May God Have Mercy On America, the nation that no longer trusts Him and instead, mocks Him.

No one takes on a public policy stance without some firmly held belief, some foundational principle or worldview which they embrace, and from which they reason.

What has been happening in our society for decades is a titanic battle between two powerful, competing worldviews.
Unfortunately, one of those worldviews has had the advantage of pretending to be a 'reasonable' belief that is 'free from religion,' and which has gained access to your tax dollars. We have been financing a takeover by a Christianity-replacing faith. The new PC faith, the belief system of true-believing liberals, is actually a thoroughly developed, reasonable-sounding worldview. It is self-identified as a "Bold new faith" which must be "Established" in "All mankind's institutions and associations," in Humanist Manifesto I.

Many citizens see the symptoms and the effects, but most people do not realize that there is a battle of major cultural significance, an all-out tug-of-war of ethics and ideology, happening in America. But the battle seems to be going to the progressive/Humanist side:

This is how the new secular/progressive 'faithful' are organized and how they behave:

The ACLU are the legal enforcers of the new faith (Obedience), brandishing their flaming secular legal sword at any slightest whiff of Christianity that dares to pop up anywhere in public life.

The ACLU has been very visible and vocal in public policy struggles, though most citizens are mystified by the motives and strange positions taken by this so-called defender of 'rights.' The ACLU goes to court to enforce 'separation of church and state' found, NOT in America's Constitution, but found in the Humanist Manifestos and the old, failed Soviet Constitution, Article 52:

"The church shall be separate from the state, and the schools from the church." 
It is ironic, insulting and tragic that we finance a school system that enforces this Soviet version of our 'rights.'

The ACLU and Humanism are philosophically and historically tied together.

Roger Baldwin, ACLU founder, stated categorically: "Communism is the goal!" He refused for the rest of his life to modify or retract this statement.

"In later years Baldwin occasionally wrote for The Humanist. On one occasion he reviewed a book for The Humanist by Corliss Lamont whose credentials as a Humanist include being named "Humanist of the Year" for 1977, being signatory to Humanist Manifesto II, and serving as honorary president of the AHA. Baldwin gave this evaluation of Lamont's book: "It reads like an expanded annual report of the Civil Liberties Bureau."(6) In addition to Lamont's Humanist affiliations, he also sat on the ACLU board for many years, thus further demonstrating the compatibility of Humanism and the ACLU. (Eventually, Lamont did reject the ACLU because of its stand against communism.) Baldwin served as Director of the ACLU until 1949, but thereafter continued to influence the Union as a member of the National Advisory Council." -- Mainstream News Media, Alphabet TV Networks, Big Print Journalists are the 'Ministers of Truth' (Preachers) of the new faith, and publishers of the will of the Democrat party.  Recent evidence is the unashamed gratitude from Joe Biden and other Democrats for Lamestream 'news' media advocacy of anti-Constitution 'gun control' measures. Old-school journalists would be repulsed by such praise from government representatives.Modern 'journalists' actually bask in it, preening over their politically correct 'reporting.'  Anyone who knows what journalism is supposed to be, how they are supposed to use First Amendment Freedom of the Press to scrutinize and expose government, should be sickened by Lamestream 'news' preachers.

'Gay rights' activists are the shock troops (Onward, true-believing soldiers), the politically astute, PC Inquisitors, the aggressive vanguard of the Humanists. Dare to question their 'Diversity!' mantra and you will face rage and possible lawsuits.  How far will they push you?  As far as they can.

Environmental extremists are the preening, 'righteousness' arm of the Humanists, 'saving the planet' (Salvation) whether you want their messianic ministry and their Big Brother home-peeping and regulation of your shower head, your light bulbs, your grocery bags, and garbage-monitoring e-chips forced on you or not.  Insisting that we leave our own vast natural gas, coal and oil resources in the ground, so we can become third-world beggars like the rest of the 'world community.' And their beliefs are killing our economy, as we enrich our enemies. "Sustainable" is a worship word that means regulate you, tax you and diminish your quality of life, all for a hoax:

The 'Choice' crowd makes certain that the blood of innocent unborn children (Rituals) is offered up to their cause. Their noble efforts are not to be questioned, and regarding their ghoulish practices...just do not think about the 50 Million babies butchered so far.  Those defending abortion must defend the acts of this man, and laugh with him about the ease of killing the innocent:

Big Government, Obamacare (Ministering to the Sick) will create disastrous results, with years-long waiting lists, neglected and abused patients and IRS-controlled death panels, but many will still believe that government is their good shepherd: It has already been tested. We know the results of nationalized healthcare.But faith is more important...

Gun Control - (Peace and Love)  Every school shooter violates multiple layers of existing gun laws, but the progressive/Humanist true-believer is convinced that making even more laws to restrict Constitutional Freedoms -  will somehow enforce a 'just', peaceful and loving society and school environment.


Giving back - Liberal politicians enforce charitable 'tithing' (Sacrificial giving) through confiscatory taxation, scolding about 'fairness' and equitable 'redistribution' of wealth and resources, then use the money to advance Humanist principles and grow their influence through tyrannical public policies.

Taxpayer-financed education - K-12 and university - provide training in the correct manner of thinking and behaving  (Sunday School 5 days per week, and Missionary outreach), constantly demonstrating or subtly hinting that Christianity is primitive, dangerous, irrelevant or 'harmful,' and sanitizing any last vestige of a Christian heritage from our society, and teaching students to earnestly -  erroneously - chant that "America was founded on freedom from religion!"

Teachers Unions - from the N.E.A. and down through outspoken activists in their state and local unions - and 'International Unions' are the fraternal organizations (Faith-based organizations) associated with the Religious Left, they give votes, money and activist shoe leather to the Humanist movement. They are also the most powerful, influential lobbyists in D.C. and your state Legislature, making all kinds of legislation, not just education, their business. Politicians are ordinarily afraid to defy them. That is one of the reasons for their vitriol and outrage against Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin:

"I am convinced that the battle for humankind's future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers that correctly perceive their role as proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes and respects the spark of what theologians call divinity in every human being... The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and new -- the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of humanism, resplendent with the promise of a world in which the never-realized Christian ideal of 'love thy neighbor' will finally be achieved." -- "A Religion For A New Age," The Humanist magazine, January-February 1983 [Volume 43, Number 1]
For any who remain skeptical about the influence of Humanism on education, just plug in the terms Life Long Learning, a comma, and Humanism into Google. You will get a tremendous amount of documentation that will demonstrate just how fully saturated with this new belief system all branches of education - and the training of educators - really are.

The dominant media culture - and entertainment media - are the high priests of the faith (Evangelism), always attacking the 'Religious Right,' but never once doing an expose' on the 'Religious Left.' Have you ever seen a 'news' program about the Religious Left?

Gatherings of Humanist-indoctrinated faithful (Worship services), usually involve someone quoting disjointed poetry about someone's village and someone elses' children, or chanting protests and Humanist mantras. They can include inspiring music by special guests, and ghastly spectacles such as those screaming, chanting crowds, wearing theme T-shirts at the memorial services of innocent people gunned down in Arizona.

The gathering at the Capitol Mall in Wisconsin, complete with the Communist Party marching in solidarity with teachers unions and 'international unions,' along with Barack Hussein Obama's own campaign organization (Organizing For America), are also participating in a noisy worship service. Their self-righteousness is on full display. Not much decorum or solemn assembly at such services? Well, it is after all, a different kind of faith.

As Michelle Malkin points out in "Teachers Union 101 -- A Is For Agitation": “Agitation,” of course, is a full-time job for teachers union officials in New York and across the country. As the New York Post reported exclusively this week, the city Department of Education compensates some 1,500 teachers for their union activities and also subsidizes other teachers who take their places in the classroom:

“It’s a sweetheart deal that costs taxpayers an extra $9 million a year to pay fill-ins for instructors who are sprung — at full pay — to carry out responsibilities for the United Federation of Teachers.”

The UFT soldiers “collect top pay and fringe benefits, but work just one class period a day.” Nice non-work if you can get it. NYSUT, by the way, is the parent of the double-dipping UFT, which itself rakes in $126 million in member dues — but only reimburses the city less than $1 million out of the $9 million it costs to take teachers out of the classroom to serve at the altar of Big Labor.

UFT is also a chapter of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), which spent nearly $2 million on the election of President Barack Obama in 2008. (In return, you may recall, the Obama administration granted the UFT one of its coveted health care Waivers for Favors last year — exempting the behemoth union in a sweetheart deal from the federal mandate’s costly rules on phasing out annual health coverage limits.)

The forced-dues racket is big business for teachers unions crying poor. In Ohio, the state’s education association siphoned nearly $23 million from rank-and-file school workers to fatten up its union staff. The Ohio Education Association donated more than $1.6 million to Democratic campaigns last year and tossed off five-figure checks each to union and progressive allies in Oregon, Colorado and Policy Matters Ohio, a left-wing think tank funded by radical billionaire George Soros.

At the federal level, the National Education Association squandered $13 million in teachers’ dues on every pet liberal cause and crony from the AFL-CIO ($150,000) and AFSCME ($90,000), to the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate ($200,000), Media Matters for America ($100,000) and the White House brigade at Health Care for America Now! ($450,000).

The goals of the teachers union machine are not academic excellence, professional development and fairness. As former NEA official John Lloyd explained it: “You cannot possibly understand NEA without understanding Saul Alinsky. If you want to understand NEA, go to the library and get ‘Rules for Radicals.’”

The goals are student indoctrination, social upheaval and perpetual agitation in pursuit of bigger government and spending without restraint. No wonder the signature “solidarity” color of the teachers union protests this month is red."

To see the overwhelming influence of Humanist beliefs on higher education, teaching teachers what to believe and teach, do a Google search on this:

'Life long learning, Humanism'

You will be amazed at the vast amount of 'legitimate' material being pumped at those who will have influence, and who will teach children. 

Some, of course, come right through our taxpayer-financed Department of Education:

"Humanistic Education For Life-Long Learning" 

"There is growing in the United States what might modestly be called a movement towards humanistic education."

UNM Division of Continuing Education’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute
Course #19845 - Humanism: Secular World View, Section SAA

Part I: What is Humanism?
Part II: Humanism and Democracy
Part III: Evolution of the Human Social Order
Part IV: A Very Brief History Humanist Thought
Part V: Are Science & Reason Always the Answer? 

But the appearance of Humanism and its focus in education are just localized and temporary, right?


It is a major focus, and has been for decades, at the United Nations:

"Since its creation in 1945, UNESCO’s mission has
been to contribute to the building of peace, poverty
eradication, lasting development and intercultural
dialogue, with education as one of its principal
activities to achieve this aim. The Organization’s other
elds of action include the natural sciences, the social
and human sciences, culture, and communication
and information.
Today, UNESCO is committed to a holistic and
humanistic vision of quality education worldwide..."

"It acts as a powerful tool to achieve UNESCO’s
priorities and increase the Organization’s visibility.
ASPnet’s priorities are to promote EFA and disseminate
examples of quality education in practice, with an
emphasis on education for sustainable development,
peace and human rights, and intercultural learning. The
network further serves as an international laboratory for
new educational practices which reinforce the humanistic,
ethical and international dimensions of education." is all faith-based.
In Humanist Manifesto II we find the ultimate goal: "World Community TWELFTH: We deplore the division of humankind on nationalistic grounds. We have reached a turning point in human history where the best option is to transcend the limits of national sovereignty and to move toward the building of a world community in which all sectors of the human family can participate. Thus we look to the development of a system of world law and a world order based upon transnational federal government. This would appreciate cultural pluralism and diversity."

Lest anyone think this taxpayer-financed push is an undocumented claim, here's an elected representative speaking plainly about it:

In the meantime, the naive and uninformed (Through purposeful censorship by 'news' media and the edustocracy), are trampled, totally overwhelmed by the insistent, uniform, relentless nature of this full-scale, taxpayer-financed attack on traditional American values and Bible-believing Christianity.{Having been involved in exposing Humanist beliefs since the early 80's, my personal experience is that 'news' media and educators will stonewall, deny or attack, when confronted with information on Humanism and its influence}

All of the groups above consistently chant the 'Diversity, Choice, World Community, Cultural Pluralism, Consenting Adults, Redistribution, Separation' mantras of the Humanist Manifestos. If you study the issue, you will find that none of these PC worship words were used in 'the news,' in city councils, county commissions, state legislatures, Congress, the courts, public schools and college campuses, entertainment, music or public policy battles until AFTER the Humanist Manifestos were promulgated, first in 1933, then revised and expanded in 1973.

The outcomes of the influence of Humanist goals and beliefs on American society have been devastating:

  The old Christian ethic still lingers in America, and its verifiable, historical basis can not be hidden or denied.  Secular progressive 'historians' argue strenuously that America has never been a 'Christian nation' and that our Founders were skeptical of religion and deliberately 'neutral' toward Christianity. This is the view taught in our public schools, across the nation.

In the Declaration of Independence, however, the Founders made their highest appeal to our Creator for their just cause, noting that all mankind's Liberty comes from Him.

After the Revolution, they struggled to find a form of government that would provide freedom from tyranny, limit government's powers and offer the most opportunity for citizens to 'pursue happiness.'  And aged and wise Benjamin Franklin rose to address the Continental Congress and remind them of the help that was available to them:

Delivered Thursday, June 28, 1787, Philadelphia, PA

"Mr. President:
The small progress we have made after 4 or five weeks close attendance & continual reasonings with each other -- our different sentiments on almost every question, several of the last producing as many noes as ays, is methinks a melancholy proof of the imperfection of the Human Understanding. We indeed seem to feel our own wont of political wisdom, since we have been running about in search of it. We have gone back to ancient history for models of government, and examined the different forms of those Republics which having been formed with the seeds of their own dissolution now no longer exist. And we have viewed Modern States all round Europe, but find none of their  Constitutions suitable to our circumstances.
In this situation of this Assembly groping as it were in the dark to find political truth, and scarce able to distinguish it when to us, how has it happened, Sir, that we have not hitherto once thought of humbly applying to the Father of lights to illuminate our understandings? In the beginning of the contest with G. Britain, when we were sensible of danger we had daily prayer in this room for the Divine Protection. -- Our prayers, Sir, were heard, and they were graciously answered. All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of a Superintending providence in our favor. To that kind providence we owe this happy opportunity of consulting in peace on the means of establishing our future national felicity. And have we now forgotten that powerful friend? or do we imagine that we no longer need His assistance.
I have lived, Sir, a long time and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth -- that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the sacred writings that "except the Lord build they labor in vain that build it." I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without his concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the Builders of Babel: We shall be divided by our little partial local interests; our projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall be become a reproach and a bye word down to future age. And what is worse, mankind may hereafter this unfortunate instance, despair of establishing Governments by Human Wisdom, and leave it to chance, war, and conquest.
I therefore beg leave to move -- that henceforth prayers imploring the assistance of Heaven, and its blessings on our deliberations, be held in this Assembly every morning before we proceed to business, and that one or more of the Clergy of this City be requested to officiate in that service."  --Benjamin Franklin

Would Benjamin Franklin have quoted Jesus Christ, would he have reminded the Founders of answered prayers, would he have made such a speech, if he really did not believe in God?

After an exhaustive search of America's official documents, speeches and even private letters, the United States Supreme Court made this statement:

“These and many other matters which might be noticed, add a volume of unofficial declarations to the mass of organic utterances that this is a Christian nation.”   --U. S. Supreme Court 1892.   They may not have had computers or Google, but the court used available documents and the best research techniques of their day and came to this conclusion.     Our forefathers came to these shores “For the glory of God, and the advancement of the Christian faith,”  (Mayflower Compact), when the Church of England attempted to force Bible-believers to only preach and hear government-approved sermons.  Their firm resolve and impulse for Freedom eventually resulted in a world-changing Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights which listed first of all, freedom of faith-based beliefs:  “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”     With our own tax dollars and government power, the burden of a new faith of ‘Diversity’ that actually insists on conformity to the beliefs of secular progressive ideology is now being unilaterally dropped on our shoulders.   Shall we participate and be shackled by a new, government-approved faith, or shall we take our stand with all People of the Book, rejecting dictatorial government edicts that require us to violate our own beliefs?An example of how the secular faith works out in public policies:

Having been shown these things, no one can plead ignorance or attempt to employ false equivalences regarding the Religious Right and the Religious Left. Can you guess why you've never read, heard or seen a 'news' story exposing the Religious Left? Why would religious fanatics expose their own destructive goals?

America's future hinges on which worldview our society ultimately embraces. If we allow the wrong choice to be thrust on us, we will not survive as a nation. The Humanist movement is evil, manipulative, tyrannical and wholly dishonest. It will destroy us if we allow it.

When you hear 'Diversity' being chanted, know that Humanism is being preached.

For those who doubt the existence of this new religion, here is how they style themselves in a soon-to-be-launched national advertising campaign:

Note that the new evangelists do not simply push their new faith, they first attack Bible-believing Christianity with out-of-context quotes. But at least they are finally coming out in the open, instead of indoctrinating from behind the scenes as they have done for decades.

Still skeptical that Humanism is a religion? See Torcaso v. Watkins, U.S. Supreme Court, 1961, where Justice Black remarks that Atheism and Humanism are indeed religious beliefs.
