Greed money

Posted by r. a.   Sun., Aug.28, 2016

I was at the beach yesterday with some friends and we were discussing – dare I say it – whether the earth was a globe or flat. Eventually, the discussion evolved into the cardinal sins as viewed in society and in the bible. At one time, we had these memorized, but we couldn’t think of all seven. This is the reason for this post. Hopefully, it will interest you or, at the least, be regarded as informative. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lie. (r. a. note)

The seven deadly sins as viewed by society and literature

(1) Lust – to have an intense desire or need: “But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart” (Matthew 5:28).

(2) Gluttony – excess in eating and drinking: “for drunkards and gluttons become poor, and drowsiness clothes them in rags” (Proverbs 23:21).

(3) Greed – excessive or reprehensible acquisitiveness: “Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, with a continual lust for more” (Ephesians 4:19).

(4) Laziness – disinclined to activity or exertion: not energetic or vigorous: “The way of the sluggard is blocked with thorns, but the path of the upright is a highway” (Proverbs 15:19).

(5) Wrath – strong vengeful anger or indignation: “A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger” (Proverbs 15:1)

(6) Envy – painful or resentful awareness of an advantage enjoyed by another joined with a desire to possess the same advantage: “Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation” (1 Peter 2:1-2).

(7) Pride – quality or state of being proud – inordinate self esteem: “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall” (Proverbs 16:18).

The seven detestable sins according to the Bible

“There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him:

(1) haughty ( arrogant, scornful) eyes (2) a lying tongue (3) hands that shed innocent blood (4) a heart that devises wicked schemes (5) feet that are quick to rush into evil (6) a false witness who pours out lies and (7) a man who stirs up dissension among brothers” (Proverbs 6:16-19).

Judge Upholds California State Law Requiring Child Vaccinations In All Schools

Vaccine check point

SF Gate News   By Bob Egelko     Posted Sat., Night, Aug.27, 2016

A federal judge refused Friday to block California’s new vaccination law, which requires children in public and private schools to be inoculated against 10 contagious illnesses and eliminates an exemption based on their parents’ personal beliefs.

“Society has a compelling interest in fighting the spread of contagious diseases through mandatory vaccination of school-age children,” U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw of San Diego said in denying an injunction against enforcement of the law, sought by 17 parents and four antivaccine organizations.

The right to freely practice one’s religion, one of the rights invoked by opponents of the new law, “does not outweigh the state’s interest in public health and safety,” Sabraw said.

California is one of three states that require all schoolchildren to be vaccinated …regardless of their parents’ religious or personal opposition. The only exceptions are for students with doctor-certified medical exemptions and for disabled students in individual education programs.

While the law says that all children must be vaccinated, it requires parents to provide immunization records only when a student is entering kindergarten or the seventh grade.

That means an elementary-school student with a previous parental exemption does not need to be vaccinated until the seventh grade, and students in the eighth grade or higher with a past exemption won’t require any vaccinations.

Plaintiffs in the lawsuit say 33,000 students in California whose parents oppose vaccinations are enrolling in either kindergarten or the seventh grade and will be denied enrollment unless they agree to be vaccinated.

State Sen. Richard Pan, D-Sacramento, sponsor of the vaccine law, praised the ruling and said that “our schools are already becoming safer” because of the strengthened vaccination requirement.

Attorney Kim Mack Rosenberg said the plaintiffs would appeal. “All children in California deserve to receive the education that is their guaranteed right,” a right they will lose if the vaccination law is enforced, she said.

Israeli Think Tank: Don’t Destroy ISIS – It’s A “Useful Tool” Against Iran, Syria, Hezbollah and Russia


I abbreviated the following article. Full story at link. (r. a. note)

Information Clearing House  By Ben Norton  Posted Thurs., Aug.25, 2016

“Salon” – According to a think tank that does contract work for NATO and the Israeli government, the West should not destroy ISIS, the fascist Islamist extremist group that is committing genocide and ethnically cleansing minority groups in Syria and Iraq.

Why? The so-called Islamic State “can be a useful tool in undermining” Iran, Hezbollah, Syria and Russia, argues the think tank’s director.

“The continuing existence of IS serves a strategic purpose,” wrote Efraim Inbar in “The Destruction of Islamic State Is a Strategic Mistake,” a paper published on Aug. 2.

By cooperating with Russia to fight the genocidal extremist group, the United States is committing a “strategic folly” that will “enhance the power of the Moscow-Tehran-Damascus axis,” Inbar argued, implying that Russia, Iran and Syria are forming a strategic alliance to dominate the Middle East.

“The West should seek the further weakening of Islamic State, but not its destruction,” he added. “A weak IS is, counter-intuitively, preferable to a destroyed IS.”

Inbar, an influential Israeli scholar, is the director of the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies, a think tank that says its mission is to advance “a realist, conservative, and Zionist agenda in the search for security and peace for Israel.”

The think tank, known by its acronym BESA, is affiliated with Israel’s Bar Ilan University and has been supported by the Israeli government, the NATO Mediterranean Initiative, the U.S. embassy in Israel and the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs.

BESA also says it “conducts specialized research on contract to the Israeli foreign affairs and defense establishment, and for NATO.”

In his paper, Inbar suggested that it would be a good idea to prolong the war in Syria, which has destroyed the country, killing hundreds of thousands of people and displacing more than half the population.

As for the argument that defeating ISIS would make the Middle East more stable, Inbar maintained: “Stability is not a value in and of itself. It is desirable only if it serves our interests.”

David M. Weinberg, director of public affairs at the BESA Center … defended his colleague’s (Inbar’s) argument and referred to ISIS as a “useful idiot.” He called the U.S. nuclear deal with Iran “rotten” and argued that Iran and Russia pose a “far greater threat than the terrorist nuisance of Islamic State.”

Legendary Underground Nazi Gold Train Tunnel Confirmed By Explorers.

Nazi Gold Train Tunnel

TASS (Russian News Agency)   Posted Wed., Aug.24, 2016

WARSAW, /TASS/. A group of explorers who have begun searching for a legendary Nazi “gold train” in Poland have confirmed the existence of an underground tunnel at the excavation site, Andrzej Galik, the exploration team’s spokesman, has said.

“All the companies that take part in the excavations have confirmed our information on the ‘gold train’s’ location. Despite some discrepancies resulting from that fact that every firm is using its own equipment, all the data confirms the existence of an underground tunnel at a place, which we have designated,” another explorer said.

The so-called Nazi “gold train” concerns a local legend of up to three Nazi German-era trains buried underground in Lower Silesia in January 1945 toward the end of World War II.

The area, which is now part of southwest Poland, was then part of southeast Germany. The train(s) are believed to be near the Polish city of Wa·brzych, which until 1945 was the German city of Waldenburg. The train(s) are rumored to hold up to 300 tons of gold, jewels, weapons, and masterpieces.

Nazi GoldA group of explorers started a search for the “gold train” on the 65th kilometer of the Wroclaw-Walbrzych railroad on Tuesday. They are using excavators, bulldozers and ground-penetrating radars for excavation works. The explorers are planning to make three deep digs for a start.

The first information about the train’s possible location appeared in Poland about a year ago. The talk was about a 150-meter-long train with artillery guns installed on the platforms. The train carriages could be laden with industrial materials, precious metals and apparently gold in bars.

According to unconfirmed reports, the train left Breslau (now Wroc·aw) laden with gold and other treasures. The Nazis drove it into a tunnel under the Owl Mountains in a bid to save it from Soviet air strikes.

What is true is that having left Wroclaw for Wa·brzych, the train never reached its final destination. It disappeared without a trace.

According to historians, it has never been proven the train has ever existed. Fruitless searches were carried out in Poland under the Communist rule.

Daring Putin: US Invades Syria – “Ready To Down Syrian And Russian Planes”

USA Troops

Russian Insider By Eric Zuesse   Posted Tues., Aug.23, 2016

On Monday, August 22nd, the United States government — which demands the overthrow of the internationally-recognized-as-legal government of Syria — officially announced that America’s military forces in Syria will continue to occupy Syrian land, no matter what the Syrian government says, and will shoot down any Syrian planes that fly over U.S. forces there and that attack them.

As reported on Monday by Al-Masdar News:

The Pentagon has announced that the USA is ready to down Syrian and Russian planes that they claim threaten American advisers who by international law are illegally operating in northern Syria.

On Friday, Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis claimed that US jets attempted to intercept Syrian planes to protect the American advisers operating illegally with Kurdish forces in Syria after Syrian government jets bombed areas of Hasakah when Kurdish police began an aggression against the National Defense Force.

On Monday, another Pentagon spokesman, Peter Cook, said, “We would continue to advise the Syrian regime to steer clear of those areas.”

“We are going to defend our people on the ground, and do what we need to defend them,” Cook told reporters.

This means that the U.S. government will not allow the Syrian government to expel or otherwise eliminate U.S. forces in Syria. The Syrian government never invited U.S. forces into Syria, but the U.S. now officially dares the Syrian government to assert its sovereignty over the areas where America’s troops are located.

Al-Masdar continued: When pushed further about Russia, Cook made it clear that the US would make the same aggression against Russian jets who are operating legally with the Syrian government’s approval and coordination.

“If they threaten US forces, we always have the right to defend our forces,” Cook said.

This means that the U.S. not only is at war against the legitimate government of Syria, but that the U.S. government will also be at war against Russia if Russian forces (which the Syrian government did invite into Syria) defends Syrian forces from attacks in Syria by U.S. forces — forces that are illegally there.

These U.S. forces number only 300, of whom 250 were sent to Syria on April 24th to serve as advisors to other illegal military forces in Syria.

The Syrian government, from now on, is in the uncomfortable position of having invaders on its territory, and of being warned that one of them — the U.S. — will be fully at war against Syria if Syria tries to expel them.

Russia too is now under warning from the United States, that, if Russia, an ally of Syria, takes any action to expel or kill any of the U.S. invaders in Syria, then the U.S. will also be at war against Russia.

The U.S. government is now also daring the Russian government. Perhaps the U.S. strategy here is to force Russia’s President, Vladimir Putin, either to back down, and abandon its Syrian ally, or else to launch a nuclear strike against the United States. If Putin backs down, that would greatly diminish his support from the Russian people.

Cop Arrested For Killing His Own Brother

Police Shooting

The Free Thought Project  By Claire Bernish   Posted Mon., Aug.22, 2016

Dinwiddie County, VA — A Virginia sheriff’s deputy has been arrested and charged in the shooting death of his own brother.

Dinwiddie County Sheriff’s Deputy Terrell Coles, 24, faces charges of second-degree murder for killing his 25-year-old brother, Brandon, after a heated dispute in the early morning hours on Sunday.

Coles is being held without bond in the county jail as state police conduct an investigation of the shooting, which happened at the deputy’s home.

“An altercation ensued in the residence in the early hours at 3 a.m.,” said Virginia State Police spokesman Sgt. Steve Vick. “At some point during the altercation a weapon was retrieved and Terrell Coles shot Brandon Coles, fatally wounding him.”

Brandon Coles died at the scene.

Neighbors described Coles as friendly and helpful, and were shocked at news he could be responsible for murdering anyone — particularly his own brother.

“Terrell was very helpful. I used to catch his dogs for him when they got loose and he used to help me out with my dog,” said neighbor William Brown, who often spoke with the deputy, local CBS affiliate WTVR reported. “We treated each other just like good friends and good neighbors. Me and the Coles are just like family.”

Other residents grappled with the violence, itself — highly unusual for their idyllic suburban enclave.

“Stuff like this doesn’t happen in this neighborhood,” Bryan Williams, who lives two doors down from Coles, explained to local ABC affiliate WRIC. “We have a few wild characters but it’s all love.”

Williams was alarmed the shooting happened so close to where he lives, saying, “I don’t know if they were inside or outside or what happened but a stray bullet could have went anywhere. It could have hit our house, could have hit somebody inside the house and that’s what worries me the most.”

He arrived home immediately after the shooting and was surprised to see a number of patrol cars outside Coles’ residence.

“I came home and I saw all the police cars,” said Williams. “I saw it taped off. I saw them loading the guy up in the car. I sat out here for about an hour trying to figure out what was going on.”

Williams said though he didn’t speak to Coles frequently, the deputy had been amiable when he first moved to the neighborhood.

“He was a nice guy when I talked to him, especially for me just knocking on his door randomly. We are all good neighbors here [it’s] real shocking that it happened.”

Off camera, another neighbor echoed Williams, describing Coles as friendly and respectful of others.

According to WRIC, the Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation Richmond Field Division is conducting the murder investigation.

“We are here at the request of Sheriff Adams,” Vick explained. “He requested us to come down and do the investigation. So we are here for that reason.”

Unnamed sources told WTVR the brothers’ father is a Virginia State Trooper.

Coles, who has been a sheriff’s deputy since 2012, was fired following his arrest early Sunday morning, according to officials with the Dinwiddie County Sheriff’s Office cited by WTVR.

Zio-Trump Pledges To Keep “Anti-Semitic Attitudes” Out Of America

Donald Trump Zionist

According to the The Daily Stormer, “Joseph Stalin, in his reply to an inquiry of the Jewish News Agency in the United States in 1931, he informed the Jewish community that anti-Semitism in Russia, where Communism had triumphed in 1917, was a crime punishable by death.” If Zio-Trump has been selected as Prez, will he implement the same laws in America? In my opinion, it could happen. (r. a. intro)

Non-Aligned Media  By Brandon Martinez     Posted Sun., Aug.21, 2016

Further expanding his proposals on restricting immigration, Trump has pledged to create an “extreme vetting” process that would keep out people with “anti-Semitic” attitudes.

In a new campaign speech Trump called for re-instating an ideological screening test for potential immigrants, invoking a similar policy implemented during the Cold War to screen out people with communist sympathies.

This time around, Trump said, the red flags will not be communist leanings but Islamist and anti-Semitic views, which often go hand-and-hand he implied.

“Beyond terrorism, as we have seen in France, foreign populations have brought their anti-Semitic attitudes with them,” Trump said while arguing for a tougher vetting standard. He went on to praise Israel as America’s “greatest ally” in the Middle East.

Trump has put his philosemitism and hawkish pro-Israel views front and center of his campaign, culminating in a searing appraisal of the Jews and Israel during his March speech at AIPAC, the powerful Israeli lobby group.

Blasting the Palestinians, Iran and Muslims in general, Trump plighted at AIPAC to “dismantle the disastrous [nuclear] deal with Iran,” a country that he, spouting Likudnik propaganda, labeled the “leading state sponsor of terror.”

In September 2015, Trump headlined a Tea Party Republican protest of the Obama administration’s nuclear accord with Iran, which he has consistently criticized as “bad for Israel.”

“I have a beautiful Jewish daughter,” Trump is known to boast, lionizing his daughter Ivanka who converted to Judaism after marrying the Jewish real estate tycoon Jared Kushner. Kushner has worked on Trump’s presidential campaign, advising his father-in-law on all things Israel, including helping write the blisteringly pro-Zionist AIPAC address.

During that speech Trump bragged of being the “Grand Marshal” at the 40th “Salute to Israel” parade in New York in 2004.

“We love Israel, we will fight for Israel 100 percent, 1000 percent, it will be there forever,” Trump declared in an acceptance speech for an award from the Algemeiner, a hardline Zionist outfit, who honored the real estate magnate for his services to Israel.

Trump has extended those services to Benjamin Netanyahu specifically, endorsing Israel’s crazy war criminal prime minister in a television commercial during the 2013 Israeli general election. Netanyahu is a “great prime minister … a winner, he’s highly respected, he’s highly thought of by all,” Trump opined in the video. “Vote for Benjamin, terrific guy, terrific leader, great for Israel.”

Critics of Trump have pointed to his Zionist ties and rhetoric, in addition to his noticeable flip-flopping on major issues.

Lesbian Sues Catholic School For Being Fired.

Nun with ruler

RAW STORY By Janice Williams Via IBT   Posted Sat., Night, Aug.20, 2016

A Roman Catholic school in New Jersey is under fire after allegedly violating state discrimination laws. Kate Drumgoogle, former head of guidance and head basketball coach for Paramus Catholic High School, is suing the institution on claims she was fired because she’s married to a woman, ABC reported.

An attorney for the school was set to ask a judge to dismiss the lawsuit in court Friday, explaining in court documents Drumgoogle wasn’t let go from her position due to her sexual orientation but because she didn’t uphold the tenants of the faith when she entered into a same-sex marriage.

According to Drumgoogle, who was fired in January shortly after administrators discovered she was married to a woman, other faculty members have been allowed to keep their employment at the school despite their failures to adhere to the church’s tenets.

In the lawsuit, she points out that there are some members who have been divorced, have children out of wedlock, cohabitate with members of the opposite sex.

She also cited another teacher who is still employed at the school who is gay and mentioned nude photos of another teach have circulated online.

“There are people who are living their lives that go against the tenants of the church, and they’re still employed there,” Drumgoogle, who believes she was specifically singled out, said during an interview with North Jersey.com.

Drumgoogle’s history with Paramus Catholic High School extends well beyond her years as a counselor and coach. She graduated from the school in 2001 and was also a star point guard and two-time captain of the girls’ basketball team.

She was hired by the school as an assistant basketball coach in 2005 while she was still an undergrad student at St Thomas Aquinas College in Rockland County. After receiving her master’s degree in social work from New York University, she was hired by Paramus Catholic as a guidance counselor.

“I was proud to work there,” Drumgoogle said. “Proud to be part of such a diverse school community that exposed students to so much, and I also felt it was an honor to serve my alma mater.”

Drumgoogle said she prided herself on keeping her personal life private, especially when working with adolescents, and had only told one of her colleagues about her marriage to wife Jaclyn Vancore.

According to Drumgoogle, she was told she would be fired if she didn’t resign by Jan. 15. She ended up being terminated by Vail Jan. 25.
