Hurricane Sandy and Halloween
Hurricane Sandy has been one of the most devastating hurricanes in American history. The Hurricane affected numerous states. Almost 10 million people have lost power and over 108 human beings have died by the storm alone. It affected places from North Carolina to Connecticut plus Rhode Island. New Jersey was hit extremely hard by the storm. Many communities have been buried in sand and a lot of homes have been destroyed. More than 75 percent of the Jersey shore has been flooded. Many gas burning fires have existed in New Jersey, Queens, New York City, and other places. The FDNY have evacuated from Bellevue Hospital in New York City. New York City subways have been flooded and the devastation has been truly horrendous. Seaside Heights, New Jersey has been damaged greatly as well via the winds and the power of Hurricane Sandy. There has been closure of NYC's JFK and LaGuardia airports. These airports are now open. International flights have been grounded in places all over the world. This is one of the worse Hurricane hits in modern American history. The images of the aftermath of the storm has been indescribable. New Jersey is hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy indeed. The water has almost completely flooded Seaside Heights, New Jersey. The federal government, state government, and the local government are working together in other for them to send resources in helping the victims of Hurricane Sandy. Many National Guard groups are coming into the Northeast in trying to assist the human beings suffering from the storm. Some folks have been arrested for looting on Coney Island, Brooklyn. Yet, the looting is done by a vast minority people and some in the alternative media (like you know who. Also, some in the alternative media are acting like Republicans in denying that the federal government can do any good for society and they hate collective power. One Republican Rep. King said that he didn't want money sent to Sandy to be spent on Gucci bags and massage parlors. Donald Trump said the worse comments that the President is pretty much bribing his way to reelection via the disaster) are exploiting the looting as a means to promote their sick, intolerant agenda. The one important thing now is the survival of human beings. The election now means very little as compared to the necessity of saving lies and giving confront to the victims of this overwhelming tragedy. The storm has caused up to 3 feet of snow to exist in some parts of West Virginian mountains. The Northeast haven't witness a storm of this magnitude in a long time. There is an infrastructure issue too. Since, much of the Northeast don't just need economic help, but the whole infrastructure should be rebuilt. This can be done with federal, state, and local power. The hurricane caused damage in Cuba, Jamaica, and other locations too. President Barack Obama met up with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie in surveying the damage in New Jersey. The cost of the damage so far is estimated at ca. $20.4 billion. It is certainly important to express sympathy toward the victims of the tragedy. Some people are doing their part in giving charity and necessary resources as a means to help human beings that are the victims of Hurricane Sandy. Many folks are trying to cope with their entire lives changed. People have talked with the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, and other groups that seek to improve the conditions in the East Coast. The Presidential election of 2012 pale in comparison to the needs of the people suffering as a product of the Hurricane. So, we should our part as human beings to help anyone that legitimately need help. As for FEMA, we need the federal government to help society, but we can't ignore the problems with FEMA. Patriots and scholars have exposed the errors found in FEMA from messing up supplies to being involved in trying to influence pastors (via a May 2006 FEMA document entitled, "Pastoral Crisis Information") to support an unconditional allegiance to government in times of crisis. I believe in positive government and a powerful federal government to help citizens when it's necessary, but I don't believe in worshipping government. I worship God alone. The Hurricane is a whole lot worse than Irene. The President of the United States is doing what he is supposed to do. He is speaking out, coordinating agencies in assessing the situation, and surveying the damage. The President is our brother. We need to keep it real and respect any human being (like the President) as an equal.
It's a known historical and scientific fact that aspartame is dangerous for human beings. Now, there is a landmark study where aspartame is linked to leukemia and lymphoma. This study was done on human beings. This study cited the information that as few as one diet soda daily may increase the risk for leukemia in men and women (and for multiple myeloma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma in men). This study is the longest one ever running on aspartame as carcinogen in humans. On this topic, this topic is the most comprehensive, long term study ever completed on this topic. Therefore, this study has more weight than the other past ones. It can open the door for further similar findings on other cancers in future studies. The researchers in the study analyzed data from the Nurses' Health Study and Health Professionals Follow-UP Study for a 22 year period. 77,218 women and 47,810 men were included in the analysis for a total of 2,278,396 person years of data. Apart from sheer size what makes this study superior to other past studies is the thoroughness with which aspartame intake was assessed. Every 2 years, participants were given a detailed dietary questionnaire. Their diets were reassassed every four years. Previous studies which found no link to cancer only ever assessed participatns' aspartame intake at one point in time, which could be a major weakness affecting their accuracy. The study found that one diet soda a day can increase leukemia, multiple myeloma and non-Hodgkin lymphomas. In the pooled analysis, they found that there is a 42 percent higher leukemia in men and women. For men only, there is a 102 percent higher multiple myeloma risk and in men only, there is a 31 percent higher in non-Hodgkin lymphoma risk. The study used multi-variable relative risk models. They compared to participants who drank no det sodas. Now, it's unknown why only men drinking higher amounts of diet soda increased risk for multiple myeloma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The diet soda is the largest dietary source of aspartame by far in America. Every year, Americans consume about 5,250 tons of aspartame in total, of which about 86 percent (4,500 tons) is found in diet sodas. This confirmed previous high quality research on animals. That is why most of the past studies showing no link between aspartame and cancer have been criticized for being too short in duration and too inaccurate in assessing long term aspartame intake. This study is both long term and accurate. In an in class research study done on animals (900 rats over the entire natural lifetimes) showed similar results back in 2006. It showed that aspartame significantly increased the risk for lymphomas and leukemia in both males and females. There is a follow on mega study which deals with aspartame exposure of the female rates in the fetal stage. The increased lymphomas and leukemia risks were confirmed in those rats. That is why the female rats showed significantly increased breast or mammary cancer rats. People question if future studies on aspartame will deduce more cancer risks from brain cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, etc. Common sense, street sense, and any kind of sense will tell you to not make aspartame in our daily diet at all. Even an alternative more sugar sweetened sodas daily saw men have an 66 percent increase in non-Hodgkin lymphoma (even worse than diet sodas). Eliminating sodas completely from the human diet can cause great benefits for folks indeed.
Political issues are great to promote. Our issues are important too. Our issues aren't just about voting. Everyday, there are great human beings actively battling against the voter suppression efforts done by reactionaries. We have to deal with the evils of gentrification that is harming our communities nationwide, because gentrification harms cultural cohesiveness (and it has a profound tendency to privatize areas in favor of corporate interests instead of being for the people). The prison state must be rolled back, because it regularly imprisons even innocent human beings. Folks from across the political spectrum abhor the evil War on Drugs, even sincere conservatives. Both major parties aren't discussing the issues of bringing the troops home from across the globe, drone wars, and other important issues of politics. Both parties seem to be invested in the usage of the militarization of Africa. Full funding of education is fine with me as well. In some cities, there has been a huge amount of unemployment. There is a foreclosure crisis that has weakened the wealth of society. Even some Democrats refuse to talk about the Drug War, poverty (since they discuss about the middle class constantly), and they refuse to talk about the civil liberty crisis in America. Both major parties refuse to call out the evil spying fusion centers and the warrantless wiretapping that is common in the USA. Both the Democrats and the Republicans have supported Big Oil, Big Energy, and drone attacks killing children in Yemen, Afghanistan, Somalia, and Pakistan. They will definitely not condemn some of the apartheid like policies in Israel (as opposed to genuine Israelis and Palestinians that desire real peace from the Middle Eastern peace movement). Immigrants ought to be respected and the issues of black Americans definitely should be respected as well in American society. As independent people, we have to advance real issues. We can't say that Wall Street should be held accountable and refuse to prosecute their members who are guilty of financial corruption. There should be something done to handle student borrowers who suffer. It is totally common sense to not witness a complete privatization of our educational system. In our time, both Republicans and Democrats in their leadership agree with the NDAA, the secret kill list, the NATO war in Libya, the drone attacks, the escalation of the war in Afghanistan, 30 billion dollars sent to the dictatorship in Saudi Arabia, military bases being newly constructed in Colombia plus Chile, etc. Even after the disaster in Japan, people still want to increase nuclear power in America. The TSA offensive body scans and pat downs at airports and the extension of the Patriot Act are great evils in America. The rendition program and a deportation of a record of 1.5 million immigrants are continuations of the Bush Jr. administration's actions. Both parties believe in the Grand Bargain or the Grand Charade, which will economically harm our social safety net. Regardless who wins the election, we ought to stand still for justice. We can't omit the need to fight for justice just because just a person is elected into office.
People from across the political spectrum (and even religious conservatives) are right to disagree with Mormonism. I first woke up about what Mormonism was really all about in the early 21st century. I saw Mormons riding bicycling and trying to evangelize people in my neighborhood for years. Mormonism is a Freemasonic-related religious organization that was created by Joseph Smith. For example, Joseph Smith copied many of his church's signs grips, symbols, and rituals from the Masonic Lodge. The Entered Apprentice of the First Degree hand sign is found in Mormonism. Mormonism teaches that the Father God was once man (and he resides in a star called Kolob with many wives and he produces spiritual children. These spiritual children according to the religion can someday be a "god" over his own star-planet). Now, I believe in religious freedom, so I don't believe that Mormons should suffer religious liberty suppression. Still, people have the right to peacefully disagree with the religion of Mormonism. Scholars have found the influence of Kabbalah in Mormonism too. Joseph Smith was the creator of the religion not Jesus Christ. He was a Freemason and a controversial man. When you see the occult/Masonic symbols (from an All Seeing Eye to Pentagrams) outside of their huge major temple in Salt Lake City, Utah then you comprehend the authentic composition of the Mormon faith. Some of the super rich and leaders in the Western intelligence community make up the membership of Mormonism. That is why Mitt Romney is so powerful economically. Also, Mitt Romney is a Mormon priest. Recently, there were more than 400 children being removed from their parents (from a Mormon compound), because of the allegations of sexual molestation of children. This isn't representative of all Mormons, but this is evil indeed. The sick group in Texas called themselves the FLDS or the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It's a historical fact that the global elite has been involved in sick pedophilia too not just cults. For example, a private equity fund run by Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. has agreed to sell its stake in the media company that runs a sex trafficking forum back to the company's management (according to a spokeswoman). The media company is called Village Voice Media. The 416 children were removed from the Texas compound. The compound had polygamy and one man was accused of sexually abusing a 16 year old girl. When you study the writings of Joseph Smith and Brigham Young, we see religious and spiritual heresies. On February 19, 1854, Jedediah M. Grant, second councilor to Brigham Young, spoke in the Salt Lake Tabernacle, telling of Joseph Smiths demands for other men's wives (as found in the source of Journal of Discourses, Vol. 2, pgs. 13-14). The source said that Joseph Smith wanted to surrender a man's wife to him, which is messed up and twisted. Brigham Young once taught it is biblically lawful for a wife to leave her husband for a man higher in spiritual authority. Young also taught (from Journal of Discourses, Vol. 11, page 269) that Mormon men could become "gods" only entering into polygamy. This is false since a man doesn't have to be involved in polygamy if a man doesn't want to. It is truly accurate to believe that it is better to trust in the Lord than man as the Scriptures plainly state. Heretical religious groups always praise the opinions of man above the laws of Nature and the will of God. In late 2012, Mormons have been on a public relations blitz in trying to present themselves as reasonable, true, and honorable. Youtube videos, commericals, and various forms of media shown by Mormons try to present themselves as just ordinary, average everday folks. They have even presented numerous people of color as a means to counteract the characterization of them as being intolerant and so forth. Yet, we realize that Mormonism has ties to Freemasonry, the Kabbalah, and known heretical, inaccurate spiritual information. This Presidential election is interesting since both candidates have much more similarities than the mainstream media presents. People already understand that Mitt Romney lied and speaks on both sides of his mouth on various policy matters. Mitt Romney believes that Jesus and Lucifer are spirit brothers, which is some blasphemous stuff to accept. In the final analysis, we have to embrace political independence. We know about the truth that we can't suck up to false religions or cartel-capitalism either. We still have neo-colonialism that must be disagreed with.
Halloween is an interesting holiday. Kids come out in the afternoon and night to seek candy. People of all ages wear clothing ranging from religious figures to masked unique characters. Real people know the truth and history about Halloween. For decades, my mother taught my family about the origin and occult significance of Halloween. Back centuries ago, real Christianity existed. It was simplistic and it was for the poor including the downtrodden. Later, the Papists and others used paganism hidden under a Christian veneer as a means to promote a bastardization of real spirituality. The day of Halloween is a time where society glamorizes ghosts, death, horror, and many degenerate aspects of mainstream society. Many believers have said that in the time of Halloween, those in the witchcraft world do their rituals in praise of Nature and false deities. According to Liberty to the Captives Ministries, even human sacrifice is done in this time of the year. Ironically, the Druids (who invented the modern Halloween ceremonies) performed human sacrifice many centuries ago. In real life, human sacrifice is ever real and it doesn't just take place back in the day (even serial killers recently have done these sick acts). So, Halloween is of Druidic origin. Halloween is related to the Wiccan day of Samhain, which was celebrated on November 1 as a means to celebrate the death of the summer. Samhain was a ceremony that celebrated death (and the Druids would dress up as evil spirits, ghosts, etc.) as a means to appease the evil spirits. Samahin honored the "Lord of the Dead." The pagans during Samhain would sacrifice even children (on the eve of Samhain during Halloween according to National Geographic of May 1977 from pgs. 625-626). So, the Druid festival of Samhain glorified and celebrated death plainly speaking. A lot of people have been conned about Halloween. Liberty to the Captives Ministries and others are right that we have the right to pray and fast for intercession against human sacrifice (and to pray that souls can be saved unto the Lord during this and any time period). Roman Catholics converted Samhain into All Saint's Day. The day before All Hallows Day (October 31) was recognized as All Hallows Eve. Eventually, All Hallows Eve became Hallows Eve; hallow’even; hallow’en and ultimately today’s Halloween. In 835 A.D, Pope Gregory IV "blessed" All Saint's Day as a "sacred day of obligation" and the Catholic Church officially ordained Halloween on that day. Former occultist Johanna Michaelsen reveals, "Halloween is also a prime recruiting season for Satanists." (Michaelsen, Johanna. Like Lambs to the Slaughter, p. 192). Witches, the Jack O Lattern, Trick or Treat, masks, costumes that associate with Halloween readily relate to Druidism, paganism, the occult, etc. I don't believe that we should be a bunch of theocrats and suppress individual liberties. Yet, I do believe that people have the right to peacefully express their free speech rights in exposing the disturbing unholy day called "Halloween" and to fight for the truth publicly. In a free society, people have the right to voluntarily express the words of the Gospel in society. The truth is that Halloween has nothing to do with real Christianity or real moral principles. It's a unholy day that glamorizes death and wickedness. I knew by instinct even when I was a young kid that something was up with Halloween. My mother told me the truth about Halloween since I was young. Now, I know even more information about this unholy day's secret history. You can't get good fruit from a bad tree. Religious deception has bad fruit since it comes from a bad tree. It is what it is.
