World’s ‘Skinniest Skyscraper’
8-7-20, * -- COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on senior citizen nursing homes across the USA with death and voter “Granny farming” - one form of “ballot harvesting.” This is a process where a third party is allowed to deliver or submit a voter's ballot on behalf of another. It also allows political operatives to collect voters’ ballots and turn them in en masse to polling stations. The legalization of nationwide ballot harvesting is one battle under a larger umbrella of overall mail-in balloting and potential for voter fraud.
A recent study shows that in the USA 24 million voter registrations are no longer valid yet remain on the voter rolls. There are 462 counties in America where voter registrations outnumber the amount of people who actually live in that county. Many of those jurisdictions are in key battleground states. Conservatives argue that mailing ballots to every single American on the rolls is inviting rampant fraud. [..]
Just before the 2018 mid-term election, California Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law AB1921, which legalized “ballot harvesting.” This resulting in California becoming a pioneer in proving there had to be a problem with this practice, considering that Orange County had voted Republican for centuries; but this time, the outcome had largely unknown candidates win; almost every Republican candidate lost. As Neal Kelley, the registrar for voters in So CA’s Orange County reported: “Every House seat went to a Democrat after an unprecedented “250,000” vote-by-mail drop-offs were counted. People were carrying in stacks of 100 and 200 of them. We had had multiple people calling to ask if these people were allowed to do this.”
Texas, Sec of State, Ruth Hughes has filed an official complaint alleging ballot harvesting in Harris County needs investigation. -->
<-- Reportedly people with prior forgery convictions picked up large batches of ballot by mail applications for local campaigns and a number of voted ballots were marked identically.
In March 2020 during the coronavirus pandemic, House Speaker Dem from California Nancy Pelosi was pushing funding for all states to allow for national mail-in balloting for the presidential election in Nov 2020, including third party ballot harvesting. House bill 6379, states “shall permit a voter to designate any person to return a voted and sealed absentee ballot to the post office” and “may not put any limit on how many voted and sealed absentee ballots any designated person can return to the post office.” The language was stripped as ‘deal breaker’ for Republicans. [..]
It’s a given that fraud will mostly likely take place in states and major cities run and controlled by Democrats whose hysterical desire to take back the presidency and even the Senate will do even voter fraud to remove Pres Trump. The Heritage Foundation reports: “The full scope of fraud in U.S. elections is unknown, and many states do not have in place the policies and procedures to detect and deter voter fraud. If Americans cannot say with certainty that their votes will be counted, that the process is free of fraud, and the outcome is valid, what incentive do they have to turn out in the first place? With elections, the process matters at least as much as the outcome, and Americans deserve a process they can trust.”

8-4-20, Kiplinger.com -- Most American voters must submit application by Nov. 2, 2020. Ohio: Voters must submit application no later than 3 days prior to election. Check your state's board of elections site for further details. In 34 states, plus the District of Columbia, any qualified voter can request an absentee ballot without needing an excuse. For the rest of the country, a valid reason is needed to be approved for absentee voting. This year 2020 however, Americans may not need to request an absentee ballot. Some states, such as Maryland, sent absentee ballots to all registered voters.
8-1-20, In Wisconsin, Democrat Gov Tony Evers has ordered all citizens at all times to wear face masks indoors; for the next 8 weeks until September 30, 2020. Forget what medical studies actually say about the effectiveness of ‘masks’ or the dangers -- all citizens must be trained to follow the orders of their government masters. Well trained serfs, when they're forced to the next procedure ... dissidents (people who demand their rights under the law of God and the Constitution) will be the minority.
Gov Evers’ order: "Face masks will be required for anyone age 5 or older while indoors except at a private residence." The order also applies to schools for the first few weeks of the year if students return to classrooms. Violating the order could result in fines of up to $200.
Rick Esenberg, president and general counsel of the conservative Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty, said wearing a mask is “courteous and smart” but a pandemic doesn’t change legality. He said, "Governor Evers, quite simply, lacks the legal authority to declare a second public health emergency and require every citizen to wear a mask.” More here
Christophobic Attacks Grow in America
What does burning God's Bibles in Portland Have to do With Police Brutality to Black People Claim?
"There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the Lord. So then each of us will give an account of himself to God."
Proverbs 21:30; Romans 14:12
8-4-20, WND.com -- With violence marching in the streets of many of America's most prominent cities, there is a troubling underlying sub-theme. Christophobia is attacking anything Christian. Surely it too is on the march. The latest example took place in Portland Oregon; the burning of God's Holy word. For more than two months violent anarchists have been burning, destroying, looting in Portland. And on Aug. 2, 2020 the rioters [aka protesters] were filmed burning Bibles and the American flag.
Ian Miles Cheong, managing editor of Human Events, tweeted, "I don't know what burning the Bible has to do with protesting against police brutality. Do not be under the illusion that these protests and riots are anything but an attempt to dismantle all of Western civilization and upend centuries of tradition and freedom of religion."
How interesting to note that the focus of the ceaseless attacks in Portland has been the Mark O. Hatfield Federal Courthouse. The late Mark Hatfield, a long-time senator from the state of Oregon, was known for years as an outspoken strong Christian and follower of the Lord Jesus Christ.
In the history of the world there is no book so attacked as almighty God's Holy Bible. However, on earth, annually the Bible remains the bestselling book with 20 million copies sold in America alone and that with and despite the Christophobes burning copies of the Word of God on the streets of Portland. [..]
Jim Denison on July 15, 2020 'forum' reported, "A number of churches from Florida to California were burned and vandalized over the weekend."
The attack on Christianity can also be seen in the responses to churches reopening in the wake of the Covid virus scare. Several Democrat State governors have a double standard toward about safety. Church services – even if those church services practice social distancing, worshiping in cars from parking lots and obedience to the face mask edict still aren't enough so worship services are not allowed. [But rioting, liquor stores, marijuana dispensers, Nevada casinos and abortion mills are.]
Kelly Shackelford, the founder and director of First Liberty Institute recently said: "There's a clear attack on religious freedom, the churches, there's been undeniable discrimination. ... 'Well, you can't sing at church, but oh yeah, the protests, we're OK with that because that's important,' which belies an understanding that they have that the church is not important – that religious freedom is not important."
When a church in Nevada recently asserted equal rights with casinos and liquor stores, the state balked. This is a case that went all the way to the Supreme Court – where the church lost...
Justice Neil Gorsuch's dissent: "In Nevada, it seems, it is better to be in entertainment than religion. … But there is no world in which the Constitution permits Nevada to favor Caesars Palace over Calvary Chapel."
Those who engage in attacking Christ and the church need to remember this warning from the Word of God in
"We all will be judged."
Romans 14:12; 2 Corinthians 5:10; James 4:4.

Kanye West Speech in South Carolina
He emotionally proclaimed: "I almost killed my daughter!"
[Note: Apparently Kanye trying to get on the presidential ballot for 2020; but originally he said he was looking to 2024. One article said at the recent So Carolina rally, he had '2020' shaved on his head - but I couldn't confirm it or find a photo showing what was shaved on his head. -- Annette]
7-20-20, DailyMail – On July 19, 2020 the 43-year-old black entertainer and an apparent new Christian, Mr Kanye West wearing a bullet proof vest gave an emotional, rambling and chaotic speech at a rally at Charleston's Exquis Event Center in South Carolina. He spoke about many topics:
<-- ... “North” is now seven. "We talked about not having this child.' He emotionally said: “She had the pills in her hand! I almost killed my daughter! Even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into this world, when I did not want to; I would still be glad we have North. 'My girlfriend [he and Kim were married in 2014, North was born in 2013] called me screaming, crying and she said I'm pregnant.” Kanye said that while he was working on his laptop in Paris he was thinking what to do, when he received what he interpreted as "a sign from God when my screen when black and white. And God said, 'if you f*** with My vision, I'll f*** with yours.' "And I called my girlfriend [Kim] and said we're going to have this child.”
'So I moved to a small town, in Cody, Wyoming.' On June 15, 2013 Kim gave birth to the couple's first child together, ‘North.’ they also have a two year old daughter ‘Chicago’ and two sons “Saint” 4, “Psalm" who is one.
"My dad wanted to abort me; but my mom saved my life. There would've been no Kanye West because my dad was too busy.” … 'Abortion should be legal but everybody who has a baby gets a million dollars or something. It takes a village to raise a child. No matter how much money you have. Society is set up for single women to not have a village.”

Rabbi: Autistic Children Say Messiah is Here
Prepare for Final War
“After that, I will pour out My spirit on all flesh; Your sons and daughters shall prophesy; Your old men shall dream dreams, And your young men shall see visions.”
Joel 3:1; Acts 2:17; Deuteronomy 13:1; Numbers 12:6
For many years, a small group of autistic children has been consulted by rabbis who believe that the gift of prophecy rests within them. But as the gift becomes rarer, the message becomes clearer: the Messiah is already here and the final, painful stages are about to commence.
12-24-18, CharismaNews -- Rabbi Eldad Shmuel organizes and attends a group of autistic children, he said: "Our minds are wondrous things, but sometimes the intellect interferes with our understanding God..."
12-16-18, BreakingIsraelNews -- Rabbi Shmuel explained that, in the ultra-Orthodox community, it's accepted that autistic children have a certain level of ability to prophecy. He cited the source for this opinion as the Talmud (Baba Batra 12:b) which states, “Since the Temple was destroyed, prophecy was taken from the prophets and given to shotim and children.”
The Rabbi emphasized that the prophecies are warning the world to prepare for a great change. The Hebrew word shotim is usually translated as ‘fools’ but in rabbinic literature, it refers to a person with a distinctive lack of social functioning. This does not refer to their level of intelligence and is not used as a derogatory expression. In the framework of Jewish law, shotim is understood to be a classification that includes autistic people. Scripture says:
"I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well." Psalms 139:14
Since 1985 people have used facilitated communication [FC] to communicate with autistic children who cannot speak normally. They can communicate if given the physical support of pointing at letters on an alphabet board or by typing on a keyboard.
Many autistic children say Messiah is already here and the final painful stages are about to commence.
One young man whose name is Daniel frequently describes a large star that will approach the Earth and though it will not hit the planet, it will cause great damage. Such a star has been seen and scientists have never seen anything like this so they don’t know what to expect. But it is coming closer, which is why we're seeing more earthquakes, volcanoes, and hurricanes than ever before. As it comes closer, this will only increase. [Genesis 1:26] More here
Star Appeared Out of No Where!
On June 17, 2018 astronomers at the University of Hawaii’s Institute of Astronomy twin Asteroid Terrestrial-impact Last Alert System (ATLAS) telescopes discovered an enormous, unprecedented bright flash of LIGHT in space that had just appeared in the heavens. Supernovae typically take several weeks to develop; but this flash, 10 to 100 times brighter than an average supernova, appeared in a region of space the astronomers had checked only two days before. Kate Maguire at Queen’s University Belfast, part of the ATLAS team said:
“It [the star] really just appeared out of nowhere.” They've dubbed it THE COW. [New Scientist]
Georgia: Members of heavily armed black militia shout Islamic chant: “Alhamdulillah” [Thanks be to Allah]
The targeting of Confederate statues is part of a larger effort to make Americans ashamed of our history as a whole, as the targeting of statues of United States heroes: Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant and [black] Frederick Douglass shows. The ultimate goal is the destruction of the U.S. as a free republic; replacing it with an authoritarian state. The nature of that authoritarian state, however, will be determined by the group that comes out on top after they turn on each other. [As in the Middle East where many Muslim groups fight each other such as: Iran that is Shiite Islam and Turkey that is Sunni Islam.]
Todd Starnes, by Todd Starnes, July 4, 2020, As many as 200 heavily armed Blacks dressed in military-style uniforms swarmed Stone Mountain Park in Georgia on Independence Day. “Black power,” they chanted. “Black power.” Police told television station WXIA that the northern and western entrances to the park were shut down after the self-identified members of the “Black Militia” entered the area. Police said the protests were peaceful.However, a video shows a man in a sniper position aiming artillery at the face of the Civil War carvings on the side of Stone Mountain. Speaker shouting:
“We’re trying to send a message. From now on this is how you protest. Don’t come with any God-**** signs anymore. Stop taking a sign to a gunfight. We are not f***ing around no more. Black power. Black people. Black man. Black woman. Black child. Black nation.”
The Black Militia leader then ordered his troops to put their fists in the air declaring: “We are not talking any f***king more."
If the members of the Black Militia are law-abiding gun owners, they have every right open carry them.
But let’s get real ... if this had been hundreds of armed white people marching through Stone Mountain there would have been wall-to-wall network and cable news coverage. Democrats would have accused the whites of trying to start a Civil War. However, so far there's been no national news coverage of what happened in Georgia with the black militia. And the reason? Because it doesn’t fit the media’s narrative. Need more proof?
Just last week in St. Louis Missouri USA two law-abiding white gun owners, Mr & Mrs Mark & Patricia McCloskey defended their home [mansion] against a rampaging mob that had torn down a gate and trespassed in their neighborhood. Instead of being saluted, they were subjected to a political lynch mob — not because they were law-abiding gun owners, but because of their skin color. More here
NFL and NFL Players Disrespect the United States, Her Citizens and Her Soldiers
Refuse to Honor Country … now add a new ‘national anthem’ to black people
6-16-20, * -- If I have brain cancer, I don’t ask my dentist what I should do. If my car has a problem, I don’t seek help from a plumber! Why do you think the public cares what a football player thinks about politics? If we want to know about football, then depending on the information we seek, we might consult with you, but even a quarterback doesn’t seek advice on playing his position from a defensive tackle!
You NFL football players seem to have an over inflated view of yourselves, thinking because you enjoy working on such a large scale stage, that somehow your opinion about everything matters. The NFL realizes the importance of its “image” so it has rules that specify the clothes and insignia you can wear, the language you use and your “antics” after a touchdown or other “great” play.
However, you and your employer don’t seem to care that you disgrace the entire United States, its 320 million people and its military. The eyes of the world see you publicly disrespecting this country, its flag and its national anthem! America’s taxpaying citizens subsidize your plush work environments, yet you choose to use those venues to openly offend them.
Do you even understand what the flag of this country means to so many of its citizens before you choose to “take a knee” in protest of this “country" during our national anthem?
You may think - because you are paid so much money - that your job is tough, but you are clueless when it comes to tough. Let me show you those whose job is really tough.:
You are spoiled babies who stand around and have staff squirt GatorAid in your mouths, sit in front of misting cooling fans when it’s warm and sit on heated benches when it's cold. That’s not “tough” that's pampered. You may think that:
The sad reality is that many of NFL black football players who protest America have poor moral values; they don’t even care about their own children. The record of their out-of-wedlock children is very high; a few examples follow:
Unfortunately, the NFL has many players that are not to be respected and have no standing to criticize the USA and disrespect her military. Many fans have declared the games will be boycotted.

NFL Announces 'Black National Anthem' Will Also Be Played
7-2-20, Newsweek: The NFL plans to play a song dubbed as the Black national anthem during pregame ceremonies during the first weekend of its regular-season games. A source told The Undefeated that the song "Lift Every Voice and Sing" could be played before the "Star-Spangled Banner" during Week 1. https://www.newsweek.com/history-behind-black-national-anthem-nfl-will-play-week-1-games-1515195
The Black National Anthem*
Lift ev'ry voice and sing,
Till earth and heaven ring.
Ring with the harmonies of Liberty;
Let our rejoicing rise,
High as the list'ning skies,
Let it resound loud as the rolling sea.
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us,
Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us;
Facing the rising sun of our new day begun,
Let us march on till victory is won.
Stony the road we trod,
Bitter the chast'ning rod,
Felt in the days when hope unborn had died;
Yet with a steady beat,
Have not our weary feet,
Come to the place for which our fathers sighed?
We have come over a way that with tears has been watered,
We have come, treading our path through the blood of the slaughtered,
Out from the gloomy past,
Here now we stand at last
Where the white gleam of our bright star is cast.
God of our weary years,
God of our silent tears,
Thou who has brought us thus far on the way;
Thou who has by Thy might,
Led us into the light,
Keep us forever in the path, we pray.
Lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met Thee,
everyday we lit
Shadowed beneath thy hand,
May we forever stand,
True to our God,
True to our native land.
*Song title: “Lift Every Voice and Sing”
Also known as: The Negro National Anthem
Song Writer: James Weldon Johnson: The poem was originally performed in honor of Abraham Lincoln’s birthday on February 12, 1900, and was later set to music in 1905 by Johnson’s brother John Rosamond
Coronavirus: Why Everyone Was Wrong
Biologist and former director of the Institute for Immunology at the University of Bern, Switzerland:
“The immune response to the virus is stronger than everyone thought… As an immunologist, I trust a biological model, namely that of the human organism, which has built a tried and tested, adaptive immune system." -- Beda M. Stadler
6-10-20, Beda M. Stadler is a biologist and professor emeritus; he is an important medical professional in Switzerland. This report is about Switzerland and not suggesting that the situation is exactly the same globally. We must look at real data not abstract [computer] models. Stadler said he'd never seen a scientific branch that maneuvered itself so much into the offside or understood why epidemiologists were so much more interested in the number of deaths, rather than in the numbers that could be saved; those with strong immune systems.
The coronavirus [aka Covid-19] is slowly retreating. What actually happened in the past few weeks [May/June 2020]? The experts have missed basic connections that the immune response against the virus is much stronger than we thought. I am also somewhat annoyed with many of my immunology colleagues who, so far, have left the discussion about Covid-19 to WHO and Fauci ... it’s time to criticize some of the main and completely wrong public statements about this virus:
Nobody asked for studies to prove that people in certain at-risk groups were dying. When the first statistics from China and later worldwide data showed the trend that almost no children under ten years old got sick, everyone should have made the argument that children clearly have to be immune. For every other disease that doesn’t afflict a certain group of people, we would come to the conclusion that that group is immune.
Just for fun, let’s call this group who refuses to accept common sense fact of immunity: “immunity deniers.” This new breed of deniers had to observe that the majority of people who tested positive for this virus, i.e. the virus was present in their throats, did not get sick:
- wanted a triage of over 80 year old Covid patients in order to stop ventilating them
- media that kept showing alarmist videos of Italian hospitals to illustrate a situation that as such didn’t exist
- all politicians calling for “testing, testing, testing” without even knowing what the test actually measures
What now as the virus is gone? It will probably come back in winter, but it won’t be a second wave, but just a cold. [Trump was right again!]

Magnificent Mt Rushmore:
1940 Democrat Prez Roosevelt Approved and Funded the Immigrant from Denmark, Sculptor Guzlon Borglund to Carve the Presidents in the Black Hills of South Dakota. And in 1980 American Indian's were Finally Paid for their land - After Lawsuits - $15.5 million to Sioux Indian Nation by Democrat Prez Carter
Democrats Delete Tweet Describing Mount Rushmore
- 7-1-20, AmericanLookout -- President Trump is visiting Mount Rushmore to celebrate America's 'INDEPENDENCE DAY' on July 4th, 2020. Naturally, Democrat's 'Democrat Natl Committee' [DNC] felt they had to attack him for this and criticize the event.The DNC’s Tweet About July 4th Event Was So Bad They Deleted It - The official Twitter account of the DNC accused President Trump of “glorifying white supremacy” over July 4th at Mount Rushmore. In the past the fire works displays at Mt Rushmore had been canceled over fire dangers. However, it wasn’t the environment the DNC was concerned about in their criticism.. it was “white supremacy!”
6-30-20, DailyWire -- Recently today's "Democrat Party" began attacking Mount Rushmore from their official Twitter account referring to upcoming Independence Day celebrations at the famed monument as “glorifying white supremacy.” Gee, strange that in 1941 and 1980 Democrat Presidents Roosevelt and Carter didn't think it was racist when they funded it and paid for the Indian land.
- With the Fourth of July days away, Democrats have officially flagged the next target in the culture war to undermine and unravel America. The official Twitter account of the Democratic National Committee shot out a tweet associating Mount Rushmore with white supremacy as President Trump plans to celebrate the '4TH OF JULY' with fireworks at the national monument.
Annette - In the 1990s my husband, John and I visited the Monument in South Dakota ... it is fabulous. John was in construction and was so amazed at the work considering the ancient [1927-1941] tools they had. And to learn the way Borglum made their eyes 'twinkle' was a special treat.
The Lakota Sioux Native American tribe owns the land? But In 1980 the US Govt Paid $15.5 million plus $105 million ...
Why Now are the Sioux Are Refusing $1.3 Billion and wants monument of Mt Rushmore Removed
Aug 24, 2011 · PBS -- The Supreme Court agreed with the Sioux: The land, long since settled, had been taken from them wrongfully, and $102 million was set aside. The tribe does not own the land. More than a century later, the Sioux nation won a victory in court. Currently the nine tribes of the Great Sioux Nation staunchly refuse to accept $1.3 billion from the federal government. The refusal pivots on a feud that dates back to the 1868 Treaty of Fort Laramie, signed by Sioux tribes and Gen. William T. Sherman, that guaranteed the tribes “undisturbed use and occupation” of a swath of land that included the Black Hills, a resource-rich region of western South Dakota.
But in 1877, one year after Gen. George Armstrong Custer’s infamous defeat at the hands of Crazy Horse at Little Bighorn and without the consent of “three-fourths of all adult male Indians” stipulated by the treaty, the government seized the Black Hills, along with their gold, and began profiting from the protected land.
However, on June 30, 1980, in United States v. Sioux Nation of Indians the United States Supreme Court upheld an award of $15.5 million for the market value of the land in 1877, along with 103 years worth of interest at 5 percent, for an additional $105 million.
One key problem: The tribes say the payment is invalid because the land was never for sale and accepting the funds would be tantamount to a sales transaction. Ross Swimmer, former special trustee for American Indians, said the trust fund remains untouched for one reason: “They didn’t want the money. They wanted the Black Hills.”

Federal Judge Gary Sharpe of the United States District Court for the Northern District of New York Ruled that Gov Cuomo & Mayor de Blasio's COVID Mandates Violate Religious Groups' Constitutional Rights
6-26-20, Western Journal -- Jewish and Catholic plaintiffs sued Cuomo, de Blasio and New York Attorney General Letitia James over the restrictions, arguing they prevented them from practicing their faith. The state order, which was incorporated by de Blasio in an executive order, allowed outdoor gatherings for graduations of up to 150 people beginning on June 26, 2020.
Federal Judge Gary Sharpe of the United States District Court for the Northern District of New York issued an injunction blocking Cuomo and de Blasio from enforcing restrictions on outdoor and indoor gatherings of religious groups that are stricter than businesses and other types of gatherings. The state and city sought to limit indoor religious gatherings to 25 percent capacity through executive orders, while other businesses and organizations were permitted 50 percent capacity, in New York’s “Phase Two” reopening plan.Judge Sharpe noted that Cuomo and de Blasio have allowed mass protests in response to the death of George Floyd, sometimes numbering in the thousands, to occur unhindered, thereby recognizing their First Amendment constitutional right “peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government.” [..]
Meanwhile, de Blasio threatened Jewish congregants who met with immediate arrest if they violated the 10 person limit. The judge recounted that laws restricting the practice of religion, in order to pass constitutional muster, must be generally applicable to all similarly situated groups. But such was not the case with New York’s executive orders.
In other words, religious adherents have the right to equal protection under the law. Judge Sharpe wrote:
“On its face, the 25% indoor capacity limitation applies only to houses of worship. Indeed, that limitation is the only one of its kind in the tangle of executive orders and the Guidance Document that have been issued in response to the pandemic. Appropriate injunctive relief here is a restraint on defendants [Cuomo, de Blasio and James] from enforcement of any indoor gathering limitations against plaintiffs greater than imposed for Phase 2 industries and restraint from enforcement of any limitation for outdoor gatherings against plaintiffs.”
Montse Alvarado, executive director for the religious liberty group Becket, praised Judge Sharpe’s decision saying: “There’s no First Amendment double standard. The judge in the Northern District of New York ruled that Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio can’t treat religious groups worse than everyone else. They decided to treat houses of worship worse than non-essential businesses that were at 50 percent capacity. In their minds, religious worship is beneath non-essential gatherings. This is a big win for religious freedom,. Religious groups are not looking for special treatment during the time of pandemic – they are looking for *equal* treatment. That is what Judge Sharpe’s decision today requires Mayor de Blasio and Governor Cuomo to do.” Source More here Thomas More Soc
In USA Black Citizen's Successes: Ten Percent Is Not Enough
The following is a report from 2014; I hesitate to send this out fearing that I'll be accused of 'racism!' I'm not a racist, I want all people to succeed and live in harmony. This report has a lot of truth; if you disagree with information presented; please inform me of errors - because as far as I can see, this is precisely what's taking place in America today. -- Annette
9-23-14, * -- For almost 150 years the United States has been conducting an experiment; the subjects of the experiment: black people and working-class whites. The hypothesis to be tested: “Can a people taken from the jungles of Africa and forced into slavery be fully integrated as citizens in a majority white population?”
The whites were descendants of Europeans who had created a majestic civilization. The former slaves had been tribal peoples with no written language and virtually no intellectual achievements. In 1863 acting on a policy that was not fair to either group, the government released newly freed black people into a white society that saw them as inferiors and America has struggled with racial discord ever since.
Decade after decade the problems persisted; but the experimenters never gave up insisting that if they could find the right formula the experiment would work! They tried with money, special programs, relaxed standards and endless hand wringing to close the “achievement gap.” Their new laws intruded into people’s lives in ways that would have been otherwise unthinkable concocting program after program and:
<-- There is a Talented Tenth: Black Americans who are talented and educated who have become entrepreneurs, lawyers, doctors and scientists are approximately ten percent of their population. A tenth is not enough.
For the experiment to work, the ten percent has to be followed by a critical mass of people who will attend and graduate from schools, hold jobs and promote social stability. That’s what’s missing. Through the decades too many American cities have failed:
THE “EXPERIMENT” HAS FAILED
The experiment has failed not because of culture, white privilege or racism. The fundamental problem is white people and black people are different and the differences result in a large social incompatibility.
- just how tired their white subjects are with this experiment
- that white people aren’t out to get black people; they are just exhausted with them. They are exhausted by the social pathologies, the violence, the endless complaints, the blind racial solidarity, the bottomless pit of grievances, the excuses and reflexive animosity
- that white people are not racists – they are just frustrated as most of the efforts and attempts to placate and encourage the successes of all black people has resulted in a small percentage being educated and successful ... with still more rioting

The two storms produced several hurricane-force wind gusts, including a 110 mph gust in Winter Park, Colorado. Winds up to 99 mph were reported in Great Divide, Colorado, and 81 mph in Rock Springs, Wyoming. A 78 mph wind gust was reported at Denver International Airport.The extreme storm didn’t turn deadly, but a tree that fell during Colorado’s derecho impaled a man and his daughter.

Minneapolis is Burning - Soros Paid Antifa Gangs & Somali Immigrants Involved
5-29-20, Journalist Andy Ngo specializes in domestic terrorist groups claims that the mass arson attacks, looting and vandalism on 5/27/20 were largely perpetrated by paid Soros gangs. He tweeted, “Antifa have joined forces with BLM [Black Lives Matter] again to carry out mass carnage and violence. Antifa accounts are encouraging and celebrating the violence in Minneapolis. They’ve even started a jail fund for those who may get arrested. They are calling it a ‘freedom fund.’”Riots took place in District 5, the seat of Muslim Congresswom Rep. Ilhan Omar, who tweeted, “Our anger is just. Our anger is warranted. And our priority right now must be protecting one another.”
Omar’s teenaged daughter, Isra Hirsi retweeted a list of supplies needed by rioting “comrades”. The original thread came from the Twin Cities Democrat Socialist Party, who were actively coordinating support efforts for the rioters, including car rides out of the area.

According to former club owner Maya Santamaria who told local outlet KSTP that during the past year:
“Chauvin was our off-duty police for almost the entirety of the 17 years that we were open. They were working together at the same time — it’s just that Chauvin worked outside and the security guards were inside.”
She couldn't definitively say they

China Expands Airbase Near Ladakh,
Fighter Jets On Tarmac Near India Border
The images have emerged amid a standoff between Indian and Chinese forces near Ladakh,
described as India worst border tension since Kargil in 1999
India claims right to use nuclear weapons ...
5-26-20, New Delhi: Satellite images show massive construction activity at a high altitude Chinese air base, located just 200 kilometres away from the Pangong Lake, the site of the skirmish between forces of India and China on May 5-6, 2020. Two images show the Ngari Gunsa airport in Tibet. The first image is dated April 6, 2020 while the second one, dated May 21, 2020 showing massive construction activity including the addition of what appears to be a second taxi-track or a secondary tarmac to position helicopters or combat aircraft. A third image shows a close-up of the main tarmac at the airport with a line-up of four fighter jets believed to be either J-11 or J-16 fighters of the Chinese People's Liberation Army Air Force. The current standoff between Indian and Chinese forces is described as India/China worst border tension since Kargil in 1999.
India-China Border Tensions
5-27-20, Time.com -- As precursors to possible nuclear war go, fistfights and stone throwing aren’t exactly the first things that come to mind. However, along India and China’s long 2000 mile contested border, that’s exactly what's been happening.
Recently the saber rattling has prompted US President Trump to offer to mediate what he called a “now raging dispute” between Asia’s two major military and nuclear powers.
Tensions along the two borders have been high for decades, with the Indian government reporting more than 1,000 mostly minor incursions by Chinese troops between 2016-18. Currently hostilities have increased following large Chinese troop movements into previously Indian-controlled territory and the enlargement of the Chinese Airbase ...
A Nuclear War Between India and China?
9-30-19, NationalInterest -- War Between India and China Could Go Nuclear Millions could Die. A hypothetical war between India and China would be one of the largest and most destructive conflicts in Asia. It would/could rock the Indo-Pacific region taking a significant toll on the global economy. India and China border one another in two locations, northern India/western China and eastern India/southern China, with territorial disputes in both areas. China attacked both theaters in October 1962, starting a month long war that resulted in minor Chinese gains on the ground. Both countries have a “No First Use” policies regarding nuclear weapons but that debatable; both countries have such large populations, each over 1.3 billion, that they are essentially unconquerable...
India & Pakistan: Why India wants to break its decades-old nuclear pledge with Nuclear Armed Pakistan
Aug 22, 2019 - India's re-evaluation of its "no first use" nuclear pledge has implications for ... a furious reaction from Pakistan, which, like India, claims the entire territory. ... all reserved the right to use nuclear weapons first in a severe conflict. India's defense minister recently suggested that the country may re-evaluate its "no first use of nuclear weapons" doctrine, raising the stakes at a time of high tension with its nuclear-armed neighbor Pakistan.
Shortly after India tested nuclear weapons in May 1998, senior Indian officials declared India would follow a no-first-use doctrine. In 2003, India revised that commitment in releasing a revised official doctrine that explicitly maintained the option to retaliate with nuclear weapons in the event of a chemical or biological weapons attack. While many noted that India's move to "no first use of weapons of mass destruction" was a less expansive commitment than it had originally made, it was not regarded as a major shift. In 2016, India's then-defence minister Manohar Parrikar wondered why India should "bind" itself by declaring no-first-use. Better, Mr Parrikar argued, for adversaries not to know what India might do
Now With Jesus in New Pain Free Body
Christian Evangelist Ravi Zacharias
Is More Alive Than He Has Ever Been
"For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: 3If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. 4For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. 5Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit. v26 Last enemy to be destroyed is death."
"God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away."
Revelation 21:4; Isaiah 25:8
5-22-20, * -- Three short months ago, I received an encouraging text from my friend Ravi Zacharias. Now, as if in a blink of an eye, he has passed from this earth. Along with countless thousands, I grieve.
When he wrote, he was reeling from excruciating back pain, but wholly unaware of the cancer diagnosis that would soon follow. Despite his suffering and his onerous schedule, he shared that he was praying for my brother, Rush, who also had just been diagnosed with cancer.
Ravi was a unique Christian who presented the Gospel of Christ so cogently and winsomely. I first became aware of Ravi before I was a believer and when I was still struggling with doubts. I watched in awe as he explained during a television interview Christianity’s basic truths of Christ free gift of salvation [Ephesians 2:9-10] in a way I had never heard. He exuded a confident mind tempered by a humble heart.
I remember thinking to myself, “Wow, I’d like to see any Christian skeptic listen to this man and dare claim that intellectuals can’t be Christians, or that Christians can’t be intellectual.” He was so obviously a deep thinker and gifted communicator. This brief exposure to Ravi was one of the pivotal seeds planted on my path to faith in Christ.
Ravi’s faith journey began when, at age 17, he found himself in a New Delhi hospital recovering from a suicide attempt. Someone read him Jesus’ words in the Gospel of John: “Because I live, you will also live.” At that moment, he immersed himself in prayer, promising God that if he were to leave the hospital, he would vigorously pursue God's truth. Upon discovering the truth of the Gospel, he spent the rest of his life fulfilling that pledge.
Ravi had a heart for defending the Christian faith against challenges and taking the Gospel to unbelievers. He firmly believed that we are called upon to love the Lord not only with all of our heart, soul, and strength - but also all of our mind, as Jesus instructed. Contrary to cynics who dismiss Christianity as anti-intellectual, Ravi knew Christianity’s truth claims could withstand the scrutiny of rigorous intellectual inquiry, and he devoted his life to demonstrating it.
He knew you couldn’t argue someone into the Kingdom of God, but he recognized that certain questions plagued doubters and that answering those questions was often an important step in removing obstacles to faith. He took seriously the Apostle Peter’s admonition: “But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord.
Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect” (1 Peter 3:15).
Unlike some, Ravi didn’t ignore the last part of Peter’s teaching. He always approached doubters with grace. It is sheer joy to watch internet videos of his many question-and-answer sessions with university students. In every encounter, Ravi treated skeptics as he would a lifelong friend whose eternal destiny was his driving concern. You could see God working in these exchanges, which were never contentious and were always overflowing with good cheer.
One hallmark of Ravi’s ministry is his credo that when anyone asks a believer a question about the Christian faith, the believer must focus on the questioner as much as the question. Ravi wrote:
“I have reminded myself over the years to never forget that behind every question is a questioner and behind every questioner is a network of assumptions, hurts, struggles and often prejudices.”
The purpose is never to win a debate or humiliate the questioner. It is to offer the questioner a rational basis for our faith in Christ. We must try to understand that person’s mindset and tailor our response to meet him where we find him.
As brilliant as Ravi was, he knew that even the best of finite human minds could not fully comprehend the infinite mind of Christ. He marveled at the story of Jesus explaining the Scriptures to men on the road to Emmaus in one of His resurrection appearances as “their hearts burned within them.” Luke 24:32
Ravi asked: “Who would not like to interview Jesus Christ? It is not possible to live without asking questions — and what better source for the answers than the One who claimed to be the Way, the Truth and the Life? [John 14:6] If one could only be face to face with Him from whom life comes, whom to know means Truth and to follow means direction, how delightful would be those moments when the most confounding questions of life are raised.”
Ravi is now face-to-face with His Savior; our Lord Jesus Christ in a new pain free body, surely the Lord Jesus believes he was a 'good and faith servant.' Luke 19:17 And although he is gone from this Earth, his legacy and his indispensable ministry, Ravi Zacharias International Ministries, or RZIM, will continue.
2 Timothy 1:9-10
Please join us on May 29, at 11:00 am ET for a livestreamed memorial service honoring the life and ministry of Ravi Zacharias here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBZxZG9nkC0&feature=youtu.be

Let's Not Waste a Crisis!
Government Leeches: tax the rich!
We need a wealth tax to cover the nation's great debt!
The COVID-19 pandemic has presented a wonderful opportunity for those who want greater control over our lives. Sadly, too many Americans have already taken the bait. We've allowed politicians and bureaucrats to dictate to us what's an essential business and what isn't.
To solve the Covid virus lockdown economic crisis in the USA, leftist politicians are arguing that a "temporary' wealth tax is applicable and should be levied on a variety of accumulated assets of Americans including cash, money market funds, real estate property, trust funds, owner-occupied housing and other wealth accumulations [of RICH people!]. How much? Assume a taxpayer earns $150,000 and has a net worth consisting of a business or home and annually falls in the 32% tax bracket - their tax would be: $48,800. A person with a net worth of $500,000 - their tax would be: $160,000. The long-term effect of a wealth tax is that people will try to avoid it by not accumulating as much wealth or concealing it. A wealth tax has become increasingly attractive because it lends itself to demagoguery [distrust and dislike] about the wealth disparity in the US. [..] Democrat presidential contenders Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren incentives to propose a wealth tax as a part of their campaign rhetoric. Currently leftists lament that multi-billionaires haven't made acceptable charitable efforts to address the coronavirus crisis. [So we must force them! Oh and pad the Democrat bills with pork like money for abortions and museums! -- Ed.]
My questions to these political leeches are:
To whom does the billionaire's wealth belong?
Most wealthy people accumulated their great wealth by working hard, serving and pleasing their fellow man in the pursuit of profits. Unfortunately, the incendiary rhetoric against wealthy people and lack of understanding has led to "profit" becoming a dirty word. Entrepreneurs and business people earn their profits just as wages are payments to labor, interest to capital and rent to land. In order to earn profits in free markets, entrepreneurs must identify and satisfy society by supplying it with products, services and other resources.
Their survival depends on pleasing ordinary people. Public schools, post offices and motor vehicle departments' survival are not strictly tied to pleasing people but rather on politicians and the ability of government to impose taxes.
"Nothing is more permanent than a temporary government program."
 Coronavirus: Wealth taxes may be rolled out globally
5-11-20, CNBC --Roger Bootle, chairman of Capital Economics, said he was concerned that some governments will be raising tax rates to mitigate the impacts of the virus pandemic. “If the deficit doesn’t come down dramatically as a result of economic growth alone, then something will have to be done, and there’s a choice between either reducing the rate of spending or raising taxes. I’d be very much in favor of reducing the rate of spending — the danger is, if you put up tax rates, you clobber incentives and you reduce the efficiency of the economy, and that’s the very, very last thing that you should be doing.” Bootle added that a tax response to the crisis would become a political issue as policymakers navigated reopening their economies, recovering lost GDP (gross domestic product) and pleasing the public.

Reportedly USA Meat Supplies Dwindle While Exports to China Increase
Hog farmer and vice president of the Illinois Farm Bureau, Brian Duncan said: "There's enough meat for all channels if we could get these plants back up and rolling."
- Smithfield Foods, owned by China's WH Group Ltd,
- Brazilian-owned JBS USA
- US owned Tyson Foods Inc 
- According to U.S. Dept of Agriculture [USDA]. since mid March 2020 - while pork supplies tightened - the number of pigs slaughtered each day plunged by about 40%, shipments of American pork to China more than quadrupled. [..]
- According to the U.S. Meat Export Federation - year-to-date about 31% of U.S. pork has been exported. One-third of that went to China, accounting for more than 10% of total first-quarter production. Exports to China set a record for the period from January to March 2020 and shipments to all destinations in March set a record for any month.
- Tyson Foods President Dean Banks said that he expects China's demand for U.S. pork to remain strong as it recovers from a COVID-19 lockdown. Tyson has limited meat products for American retailers because of plant closures. Meanwhile, Kroger Co and Costco Wholesale Corp. restricted U.S. shoppers' meat purchases.
JBS beef plant in Greeley, Colorado which produces pork, beef and chicken reduced exports to focus on meeting U.S. demand during the pandemic. Kim Cordova, president of the local United Food and Commercial Workers International Union that represents plant employees said: "I think we need to take care of our country and our needs first.”

Employees Beg to Go Home
Imprisoned on Cruise Ships
Tens of thousands of crew members are stuck aboard dozens of cruise ships around the world, weeks after passengers were allowed to disembark amid the coronavirus fiasco.
Virus crisis leaves thousands of cruise ship crew stuck at sea
5-8-20, Yahoo.com -- The cruise industry has taken a beating during the coronavirus fiasco -- now refusal of port access and no clear idea of when ships can sail once again. While the passengers have headed home, the journey drags on for tens of thousands of crew members who are stranded at sea and want to go home.
Revealed: 100,000 crew never made it off cruise ships
4-30-20, Guardian -- While most cruise ship passengers have now made it back to land, another crisis has been growing – with no safe haven in sight. Around the world, more than 100,000 crew workers are still trapped many locked in cabins refused permission to exit ship... CDC refuses to allow crew to go home more here
Stuck on Cruise Ships Crews Beg to Go Home
5-9-20, USNews.com -- Around the world tens of thousands of luxury cruise ship crew members have been trapped for weeks aboard dozens of ships. Long after world governments and cruise lines negotiated their passengers' disembarkation [exit]. Some have gotten ill and died; others have survived, but are no longer paid employees. Stated reason to halt spread of current covid virus; most ships currently have no confirmed cases of the virus.
Marvin Paz Medina, a Honduran man who works as the ship's storekeeper, sent a video to the AP of his tiny cabin of about 70 square feet (6.5 square meters), where he has been confined for more than 35 days.-->
<-- “It's hard being locked up all day, staring at the same four walls. We are trapped, feeling this anxiety that at any moment we can get seriously ill. We do not want this anymore; we want to go home. My children keep asking when I'm coming home, but I don't have an answer."
One crew member was sick, Carolina Vásquez  lost track of days and nights, unable to see the sunlight while stuck for two weeks in a windowless cruise ship cabin as a fever took hold of her body. On the worst night of her encounter with COVID-19, the Chilean woman, a line cook on the Greg Mortimer ship, summoned the strength to take a cold shower fearing the worst: losing consciousness while isolated from others.
Rich & Poor Retailers Doomed By Covid Lockdown
Neiman Marcus, JC Penney, J. Crew Bankrupt
Neiman Marcus files for bankruptcy
5-7-20, NYPost -- Neiman Marcus filed for bankruptcy Thursday, blaming the coronavirus lockdown for spoiling its turnaround and forcing it into a restructuring.
JC Penney to File for Bankruptcy Soon
5-8-20, NewsMax -- J.C. Penney is preparing to file for bankruptcy protection as soon as next week with plans to permanently close about a quarter of its roughly 850 stores, becoming the latest major U.S. retailer to succumb to fallout from the Covid virus lockdown.
Deep State and End Time Events
“Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”
5-8-20, Geoffrey Grider, NowTheEndBegins -- On May 1, 2020, Illinois Congressman Democrat Bobby Rush introduced a new bill called: H.R.6666* ... [Now why would the wicked Democrats call this bill HR6666?]
The deeper we go into this dystopian world of virus COVID-19, the murkier things get. Ironically, from a Biblical perspective, they are stunningly clear, at least to me.
COVID-19 is being used to bring in the New World Order & at this point only the most pathological of gainsayers can dispute it.
We shouldn't be surprised at H.R. 6666 is designed to allocate funding for contact tracing digital surveillance and home inspections by government agents.
Sounds like George Orwell's book ... '1984.' Understanding the times born again believers should be:
- We should be telling lost people about salvation in Jesus Christ, and encouraging the saints to get something done for the Lord whilst time remains. Romans 13:11
- We should be loudly cheering the forces of the forming Antichrist system and shouting to them ‘That thou doest, do quickly!‘ John 13:27
- The quicker the Lord permits the wicked to accomplish their evil deeds, the sooner we fly out on Flight #777. Hallelujah! 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

Project Veritas Video Exposé:
Authorities Are Inflating COVID-19 Death Numbers for Money
What’s their motivation? Money.
These claims were made in a video James O’Keefe’s organization Project Veritas (PV) released April 30, 2020 adding to the body of evidence indicating that the virus’s death toll is exaggerated; summary follows:
- Judge Calls Bull[****] on Relative’s COVID-19 Cause of Death
- Brooklyn Funeral Director: They Are Padding Numbers; Medical Examiners Too Busy to Investigate
- 40-year-old Died in Home with No Symptoms Other Than Fever, Toe-Tagged as COVID-19 Victim
- Michael Lanza, of the Staten Island Colonial Funeral Home says: “To be honest with you, all of the death certificates are writing COVID on it whether they had a positive test or they didn’t. So I think, again, this is my personal opinion, I think like the mayor [Bill de Blasio] and our city, they’re looking for federal funding. And the more they put COVID on the death certificate, the more money they can ask from the federal funds. So I think it’s political. So, I’m going to turn around and say: ‘You know, like, not everybody that we have here that has COVID on the death certificate died of COVID.’ Can I prove that? No, but that is my suspicion.”
- Josephine DiMiceli, president of Queens-based funeral service, DiMiceli and Sons, said that a Supreme Court justice (state, presumably) was involved in a case in which a non-Wuhan Flu death was categorized as a casualty of the disease. She stated that the sister of a deceased woman said her sister had Alzheimer's and had not been treated for the Covid virus. Furious... The sister got an autopsy, and “sure enough — no COVID-19.
- Joseph Antioco, Schafer Funeral Home said: “They are putting COVID on a lot of death certificates because people that are going to their hospital for any kind of respiratory distress problems, pneumonia or flu-like symptoms ... could lead into the COVID-19... To me, all you’re doing is padding the statistics. You’re saying people have COVID-19 [even] if they didn’t have it. You’re making the death rate for New York City a lot higher than it should be.”
This is all very tragic because the policy-making process is like a computer: garbage in, garbage out. Operating based on bad data yields bad decisions. As to this, our “lockdowns” — which threaten to collapse not only our economy but, possibly, our whole civilization — are not justified and perpetuated partially by the Wuhan Flu’s supposed mortality rate.
Is the USA being destroyed by collapsing the economy over lies about a disease?
