I often wonder if the people of the United States of America 'actually' comprehend how much their country is hated in the world. To intellectually know it is one thing, but my question is, 'do you ever "feel" it?' The Scriptural target audience for Prophets of doom is generally their own people and their own leaders. The only way to survive judgement, is to judge oneself first. While America may indeed be a light in the world, if its' people in any conscious or subconscious way want to ascribe its' success to God, then they need to continually judge themselves, in order to ensure that the blessing will continue.
Laws don't stop hatred, they can only punish and/or suppress it. The solution to the 'Racial' hatred, is to find the root cause. The point of all my articles, is that the root cause is to be found in the abuse that the home grown Aussies have received, not from migrants, but from the thought police, whose ultimate agenda is simply to stifle 'all' dissent or 'disapproval' on any matter, so that they can pursue their agendas without interference
Updated March 17, 2012: Forgerygate: The Obama Presidency!: Ongoing commentary: Who is President Obama. I believe that Obama is a Trojan horse, and that in due time the American People are going to suffer badly for their mistake in choosing him as President. America it seems is considered both a god and a demon, with the title changing on a daily basis depending on the circumstance. In my opinion, America is nothing more than a country, and if the world cannot have success without the USA, or if the world falters when the USA falters, then I must ask: "whose fault is that?" The world at large should grow up and become independent.
Wurzelbacher, who also said he believed Obama would make America a socialist nation - Nevertheless, the Obama War Machine declared war on Joe the Plumber. And although the Democratic Party insists its the party of the little guy, the dirt-diggers got out their spades and began digging for dirt about Joe the Plumber
Given the nature of communist ideology we can hardly blame the student for having the expressed perspective. People digest whatever is fed them. We in the west tend to 'look down on' people in communist countries because we consider that they are a 'duped' people. But what then must we say of ourselves, if rather than being seekers of truth, or at least of the facts, we prefer to jump onto ideological bandwagons; making accusations solely because that is what our ideology requires. As my students are oft to quote (amongst many other things), "There are always two sides to every coin".
"And we did a survey of the judiciary in one province to see what judges and prosecutors thought about domestic violence. Most of them thought it was a personal matter, a family matter, something they should not interfere in."
"Because we live in an age of scientific miracles and technological breakthrough, utopia always seems just around the corner. In an age of scientific enlightenment it is easy to forget that, despite his technological wizardry, man is essentially the same depraved animal he has always been, and that these wonders can be quickly transformed into nightmares of a magnitude undreamt of." - Wm. Fankboner - Failure of Civil Institutions
How could the West have overlooked the evil [Hitler] staring it in the face, for so long, before standing forcefully against it? Today, we find ourselves confronted by a new enemy, also engaged in a violent struggle to transform our world. As we sleep in the comfort of our homes, a new evil rises against us. A new menace is threatening, with all the means at its disposal, to bow Western Civilization under the yoke of its values. That enemy is Radical Islam.
A basic tenet of feminist theory is its view of intimate violence as a manifestation of our culture's "patriarchal" structure, with its attendant differential status, power, and control, which are reflected in individuals' attitudes and behaviours. Dobash et al. (1998, 1992) propose that gender asymmetry in partner violence reflects a context of gender inequality both within the household and in the larger society. Their research program conceptualizes men as perpetrators and women as victims, but it fails to provide comparative findings on woman-to-man verbal and physical abuse to validate these gendered patterns.
What I suggest, is either that the 7 months of 1 Samuel 6:2 was originally "70 years", and/or that the 20 years listed in 1 Samuel 7:2, is an insertion based on an attempt to chronologise the period from Samuel to David's 7th year, and should read 70 years... Despite the way the story is contextually situated following 2 Samuel Chapter 5 & 6 in relation to battles with the Philistines, these verses can lead one to consider that in fact the Ark was returned after 70 years, and this, probably because David, who used to work for the Five Lords of the Philistines, was now King of Israel.
Reference to King Saul in 1 Samuel 13:1, is corrupt. 1 Samuel 13:1 literally reads: "Saul was a year old when he began to reign; and he reigned two years over Israel". (Miller & Hayes, 1986, p.129) Despite this, the King's Calendar has been able to fairly accurately determine when King Saul commenced his reign. The matter of determining any of these events when using standard solar year calculations are enormous, because not only do Biblical Dates not match up with known history, but are quite obviously 'self-contradictory'.
The simple answer to the question of how long Ehud judged Israel is to be found in the Book of Judges Chapter 3 verse 30. The answer is '80 years'. Unfortunately this figure is conspicuously incorrect, if only because the total figures provided in the book of Judges for the Period of the Judges, is excessive of the time frame provided in 1 Kings 6:1, for both the Period of the Judges and the Monarchy of Israel to the 4th year of King Solomon.
What is not normal, is that many so called educated and politically correct western idiots choose to ignore reality in preference for their own fundamentalistic political agendas, some of which are just totally racist. Calling themselves humanitarian and compassionate, they are in fact fundamentalists who can brook no argument contrary to their own position.
We live in a complex world that just loves to reduce everything to slogans and catch phrases. In today's politically correct world, I can call you a whole string of bad names and get away with it, unless I happen to include some reference to your colour, ethnicity, gender or sexual preference. (The words White - Caucasian - Male and Heterosexual are not however considered derogatory or offensive.) At that point, you will be permitted to claim that you suffered from 'emotional pain, distress or trauma'. This would classify you as having been 'emotionally abused'. Emotional Abuse for Emotional Abusers is a way of living and coping - it is their method of relating to those around them. It is very much a part of their character - to belittle, wound, manipulate, control, and otherwise mistreat by withholding love, or putting conditions on love or acceptance
Emotional Abuse: Child Abuse: Husband Abuse: Female Abusers: Activist Abuse: in this article, I am going to look at the issue of 'Emotional Abuse', through a variety of lenses. Each lens filters and uses information gleaned from articles related to the abuse of men by women. We will start with a look at abuse within religious and political contexts, before moving on to address issues related to Children and their fathers.
I am sure you have sent this with the best of intentions, believing you were doing your part to create world peace. But harmony arrives in the form of human kindness, acceptance and compassion, not through segregation or attempts at forced conversion. Stein's comments about being free to interpret God as we understand him have merit, but the distortion that follows needs to be challenged.
Father convicted for smacking his child: Some blame violence on excessive wealth, excessive leisure time, insufficient counselling services, and governmental neglect. And while everyone openly or secretly blames parents for the violent nature of their children, every day secular society does it's best to deny parents the right to control or punish their children
Feminism: I once studied domestic violence at university, and know that contrary to the political agenda which foists onto the unsuspecting public that 'all men are abusive' or that 'only men are abusive' or that 'it is always the man's fault', that childhood abuse victims often end up in abusive relationships, because it is the only type of relationship that they know how to deal with. A childhood abuse victim will either subconsciously seek out an abuser, or failing that, will eventually turn an otherwise non-violent spouse into an abuser
The Palestinians depend on Israel for electricity, water and fuel and the whole world expects Israel to keep the Palestinians supplied with these essentials. If Gaza is under Israeli occupation, then how can it be said that Hamas is in control, and how is it that the Palestinians can keep "launching near-daily Kassam rockets" into Israel. If Gaza is under occupation, why does Israel stand accused of 'incursions'? Again, if Gaza is under occupation, who are the Palestinians to be making demands for concessions as a pre-requisite to peace?[/
The majority worldview today is xenophobic. Take away the word 'Hatred' from the definition of this word, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. It is normal. It is easily observed in the natural world - you know, the world of 'evolution theory'. It is natural. Furthermore, from the viewpoint of national politics, security, and culture, it is a must if a country is to survive 'intact'. If the culture of a nation is to change, that change should be a natural evolutionary process. Such processes usually take considerable time.
The way events are unfolding in Palestine, Gaza, the smaller Palestinian territory on the Mediterranean Coast, will soon be totally controlled by Hamas, and will be a separate state to the larger Fatah controlled West Bank. How this situation will unfold in relation to Palestinian peace with Israel, is still debatable, but with the animosity between the two factions, Fatah's West Bank leadership is likely to take the high moral road to normalisation of relationship with Israel and in consequence thereof, declare Palestinian Statehood.
Political Correctness and Multiculturalism: Why do I find Political Correctness freaks totally repulsive? It's quite simple really. I live in China. You know the place! It's that totalitarian society that people are always harping about, where no one has any freedom, and where the government controls everyone and everything. Why is it that I find I have more freedom to speak my opinions within this country, than within my own
Religious folk were too busy going to Bible studies or Home meetings, and secular organisational people needed miles of bureaucratic red tape unravelled before they could do anything. So at times I have been left to care for those for whom no one else cared.
Former PA foreign minister Mahmoud A-Zahar of Hamas said Friday that recognizing Israel contradicts the Koran, Israel Radio reported. In an interview with a Hamas-affiliated Web site, A-Zahar said that Hamas had not given up on the principle that all of Palestine is Muslim land.
During our chat in the bookstore, it became obvious to me that I was the target of a professional beggar, albeit, one highly skilled in the English language. He had informed me that he had run away from home 5 days earlier, after stealing some money from his parents, and was now living on the streets, eating garbage
Child Safety Minister Desley Boyle said the findings shattered society's image of the caring and devoted mother and the belief that men were more likely to abuse children. "We have an idealised image of mothers - that they feed their kids before themselves - but I'm sorry to say, it's not always true," Ms Boyle said.
And so today, as we fearfully walk along not willing to make of ourselves hypocrites by reneging on some of our highbrow social agendas, we have begun the slide into a madness that first commences with our refusal to see what is clearly before our eyes and to hear what is clearly spoken in our ears, and which then rushes headlong into blatant hypocrisy that self justifies by the slimmest of threads. "There is a kind of conspiracy not to punish the criminals. Hundreds of Palestinians were killed in the recent struggle between Fatah and Hamas - Who will punish those who gave the orders - Who will punish those who committed [the crimes] - Who will punish the people who remained silent...?
Origins of the Universe: Political Correctness in Science. One day I began to notice there were people pushing an agenda called 'Creation Science', which today I guess we can consider the forerunner to the Intelligent Design Movement. So did Mother Nature know that an asteroid was going to hit the earth? Wouldn't that imply intelligence? Wouldn't a hostile environment have done away with the little blighters long before they grew wings? When you look at nature, the ultimate social norm is survival at any cost. Kill or be killed. There are no niceties in nature, nor are there any morals
Updated in 2011 - There is one absolutely undeniable true fact that exists in Palestine; that Hamas does not now, nor has it ever, and nor does it ever intend to live in peace alongside of Israel. Only Stupid Bleeding Heart Judeo/Christian White Westerners fail to be able to see what is written and hear what is spoken by Hamas in this regard. Even the United Nations is Anti Israel. Beware of False Prophets who cry Peace! Peace! when there is no Peace! The most recent announcement of Hamas / Fatah unity in 2011, is designed to make certain a positive reponse from the United Nations in September 2011, to the establishment of the Palestinian State. Within 3 years, there is going to be another all our war with Israel designed to wipe it off the map.
For years the people of Israel have declared that they only want peace with their neighbours, but we know that their words are all lies. They say that they want true dialogue with their neighbours, but it is clear that they never want those dialogues to succeed. They blow up every situation to serve their own interests and a foreign agenda.
"Muslims will have a more and more decisive voice in the makeup of European governments." - "Every European with a right mind has every reason to be frightened," - "It is time one should wake up and realize what is happening in Europe," According to Professor Israeli's new book, "As many as 100,000 French and British citizens have converted to Islam over the last decade".
XinJiang is Muslim territory! It is now populated with Han Chinese who have been paid to go live and work there. Call me cynical if you must, but I can't help wondering if the real issue here isn't about some Local people wanting to get rid of, not only of the Han Chinese, but a foreign religion. That is not meant as a slight against Muslims, for in fact I have many Xinjiang friends, but 'greasing the wheel' is common practice in China, and a greased palm could solve a lot of problems if for instance you had (Han Chinese) foreigners trying to convert your kids to another religion.
Cosmologist Steven Weinburg was first to address the question, should science do away with religion? He responded with an unequivocal Yes, saying: the world needs to wake up from the long nightmare of religion.... Anything we scientists can do to weaken the hold of religion should be done, and may in fact be our greatest contribution to civilization
The difference between Martyrdom and Suicide is that the Martyr will gladly die for his faith, if that is the lot that befalls him; whilst a suicide takes matters into his own hands. The early Christian church had to stop people from seeking martyrdom. It is a contradiction in terms. When one lives in China and encounters Christianity everyday, one finds it hard to believe that there is a necessity to have Christian Martyrs in China.
The Rise of Islam: Immigration and Assimilation: As every convert to Islam or other religion will tell you, there was a void in their life that was filled by an acknowledgment of and relationship to the Divine. The Intellectual morons of western countries including our own simply cannot understand this or accept it, because to do so would negate their own ideology. In destroying traditional culture, and attempting to put into it's place a 'multitude of cultures' (multi-culture), that symbiotic political correctness creature that lives off 'multiculturalism', has somewhat succeeded in giving special status to 'other culture'. As such, for many, this 'special culture' is very attractive.
The thinking behind Political Correctness is that if you say anything with which we disagree, we will punish you using laws that we had introduced for the specific purpose of controlling the voices of the population. I was asked last week why I object to Multiculturalism. My answer was that I do not in fact object to multiculturalism. What I object to is it's symbiotic relationship with totalitarianism - with Political Correctness. When you punish me for not deceiving you with politically correct language, I object. If you ask me a question, I will give you my honest opinion. If you are a Politically Correct person who prefers that I lie, then sod off
Political Activists: As Sheik Hilaly discovered, the protections offered him under the symbiotic blanket of Political Correctness & Multiculturalism, don't protect him from activist agendas. His fatal mistake was touching a sacred cow - the principles of Feminism
This event actually happened in the Kansas House (not Senate) in Topeka on January 23, 1996. Joe Wright is the pastor of Central Christian Church in Wichita and was guest chaplain that day. Commentator Paul Harvey aired this prayer on his radio program, "The Rest of the Story," and received a larger response to this program than any other he has ever aired.
'Like it or not, Islam has 1.3 billion adherents around the world," says businessman Farid Ghadry, the president of the Reform Party of Syria, a Washington, DC-based organization whose aim is as its name. He is responding to the question of whether reforming the increasingly politicized religion is any more realistic than rejecting it altogether.
Do you think that being Palestinian or Muslim means anything to the political leaders? While the American people complain about the number of casualties their people have suffered in Iraq, the fact is that the majority of deaths in Iraq are Muslim deaths at the hands of other Iraqi Muslims. Does being Iraqi or Muslim protect them or the Palestinians from political Islamic Terrorism? The issue is not one of finding a way to peace. That way has always been open. More than all the political demands of the bleeding heart Muslims could have been achieved if Palestine had accepted statehood in 1948. No land would have been lost to Israel, if the Arab countries had not attacked Israel and lost.
Palestinian Statehood 2011: In view of the connection between recent events and the statements made in this 2006 article, it is obvious that nothing has really changed and the People of Palestine are still Pawns on the chessboard of their Arab Masters.
Academics, Media and Activists: The point however, is that this is either scientific nonsense, or our legal and ethics systems are complete BS. Nobody in today's libertarian bleeding heart society accepts that rape is defensible, so either rape victims should just get over it and deal with it like the animals do, or this evolutionary scientific theory is little more than a method to either keep the theory of evolution alive, or to promote ones scientific self
How dare anyone call us violent! We'll show you violence! How dare you insult the religion of Peace! For this you must die! We don't know what Pope Benedict said or meant But we are insulted by what Pope Benedict said. We don't forgive the Pope. Benedict's words will cause violence between Christians and Muslims. Benedict doesn't understand Islam. Pope Benedict is under the spell of the Jews
In 2006 public statements were made from within the leadership and Media of Palestine, that the PA syphoned off funds that should have been used to help the Palestinian people; that the real violence and economic woes of Gaza were caused by Palestinian gunmen, and that local Media were living under threat and intimidation, lest they publish the truth about what goes on in Palestine. Today in 2011 we hear that everything is just rosy!
The war continues because the Arabs could care less about the Palestinian people. The leaders fill their swiss and Paris bank accounts with cash; pay for their kids to study in expensive schools in America and other places; and spend a fortune on arms and 'the struggle'. If they weren't such lackeys to a political ideology, they would be building up the economy, and giving their people what they need. Then when they are strong, they can engage in a real war with Israel.
This guy is a vile, vicious, IGNORANT person who needs someone to show him some love and compassion...only a person who has been hiding in a barn his whole life would write something so hateful. This is the type of First Amendment expressions that lead to people getting hurt by those who find something to validate their own ignorant and hateful attitudes
So am I a prophet as a couple of religious fundamentalists requested to know? If I am, then I don't understand why many more are not? My "prophetic vision" does not come from thunder and blinding lights, accompanied by supernatural voices, it comes from a mind that has learned the hard way not to trust people who claim to have the truth, and one that prefers to look at everything honestly while totally aware of the human preponderance toward prejudice
So what do you call it when statistical probability says that something is impossible, and yet it happens? Well, I suppose when it comes to being struck by lightning, you would call it "bad luck". But what do you call it, when at various points throughout history, a group of people suffer national disasters on the exact same date that their religious deity first pronounced destruction on them, and which coincides with the same date that on two occasions, they had their religious temple destroyed by enemy troops?
"Whilst Hitler was delusional to think that he could conquer the world, the current government of Israel must be, despite being called a secular government, a fanatically religious government hell bent on forcing the appearance of the Messiah to save Israel from her enemies" concluding that "If this gamble succeeds, Messiah will arise and all will be well with the world. If this plan fails, Israel will be no more"
The Palestinians have given the lie to virtually all the scenarios so hopefully envisaged by their friends. They did not construct schools, roads and hospitals; they made no effort to turn Gaza into a thriving state. They elected a radical Islamic Hamas government. They permitted the smuggling of huge quantities of weapons and terrorists while creating new bases for terror. Palestinian society has descended ever more into advanced anarchy.
Misappropriating Jesus into Palestinian Islamic tradition allows the image of the Crucifixion to become a Palestinian symbol, which they then use to portray themselves and other Muslims as victims of Israel.
I live in China, (10 years now) and I am required to fit into Chinese life. If I don't like it, I should go home. If you tried to put this Political Bullshit onto the Chinese Government, the Islamic Governments, or any country whose people's culture or religion was different to our own, then they would shoot you or throw you out of the country. If a migrant doesn't respect the country to which he/she moves, then THEY should get out!
The people who spawned and espouse Political Correctness and a host of other 'human rights' issues, are today no longer concerned with the truth. They don't give a damn about it. So corrupt have they become in their own 'self idolisation', that neither do they hide their constant approval of the lies that are told by Palestinian and other terrorists. There is general acknowledgment among Palestinians that Arab leaders bear responsibility for the mass flight of Arabs from Israel in 1948. When any organisation needs to dispense with truth in order to promote their story and when they must manufacture justification for bloodshed and murder, we have a duty to recognise that true justification for that bloodshed and murder is a lie
The debate over whether access to pornography can change the way a person behaves - or, indeed, whether it will ultimately lead to the collapse of Western culture - has raged for decades, even centuries. Ask any Feminazi and they will tell you that men are degenerates, and that porno degrades women and leads to all sorts of manifestations of sexism and discrimination. But AS PROVED in this article, porno affects no one. (The Fems lied!)
Terrorism and Multiculturalism: PC types often like to accuse our citizens of xenophobia, which, according to the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary is the "fear and hatred of strangers or foreigners or of anything that is strange or foreign". I for one plead guilty to fearing things that are 'strange and foreign'. The Islamic world, which includes about a fifth of the world's population, is not much different to the Roman Catholic World of five hundred years ago. It was a world where people were required to hold a foreign allegiance that took precedence over national allegiances.
Abused Children: Child Prostitutes: The children are abducted from remote Christian villages in the Punjab and garner about $2000 each from slaveowners who use them as servants or in the sex trade. The Christian children live lives of misery and brutality at the hands of their Muslim owners.
We have been led astray by irresponsible journalism and a plethora of political agendas, into believing that 'we' are to blame for the violence of the poor and downtrodden. Nothing could be further from the truth. As statistics show, more Muslims have been killed by Muslims in their quest for power, than any of us have been killed by Muslims. Those seeking power care naught for human life, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Palestinian, Iraqi, Israeli or American.
'The Forces of Evil are winning! Everyone is just too afraid! Most people have believed the lie!' Everyone is so concerned to be politically correct and so worried about being perceived racist, that they fail to see that in fact, the true racists with the truly incorrect political agenda, are the ones pointing the finger and doing the name calling
To paraphrase a Biblical saying, it seems that nowadays, it is easier for "a camel to fit through the eye of a needle" than to find someone who speaks plainly, says what he means and means what he says. Political correctness makes my skin crawl, and yes, from those who take either side of an issue. I have always believed "everything in moderation." That means being nice too. If being nice means someone is obscuring or twisting the truth, there is nothing at all "nice" about that
Children's Rights: Drugging Children: One parent I am working with was told that because her son could not hold a pencil correctly he was ADHD and needed to be on Ritalin. The child is 4 years old. He likes to play and sing like many children do. This is unacceptable to school officials. In this case and in many others I have seen, the school official is actually making a medical diagnosis without a license, which is against the law. It has become accepted that even teachers can diagnose a child.
Five years later in 2011 nothing much has changed in the way Activists, The Media, The United Nations and Hamas lie! And as we have discovered over the last couple of years, many of these lying activists end up raped or murdered by the very people they 'lie for'
We live in a (western secular) world that while doing its' best to remove God and Religion from our lives, nevertheless, constantly preaches 'morality'. This might seem a strange concept, but in fact, we are constantly being pushed to accept certain 'moral norms', based solely on the basis that someone, some group, or some Political Party has endorsed the issue and formalised it in law
Video Piracy in China: One salesman in Beijing reported that they can't get pirated copies of Brokeback Mountain fast enough. The young people here think it is a great story. Did I expect to be shocked by homosexual scenes? Not sure! But I wasn't! Did I think I was going to see some loving tenderness between two men? Probably! But I didn't! They spent more time punching each other out than being lovey dovey! Did I see something really eye opening? You Bet!
It is important, in safeguarding our children, to know which groups of men put children at most risk of abuse. The study documented that of the 26 percent of males who abuse children sexually, 30 percent are stepfathers, 24 percent are adoptive fathers, and 20 percent are the mothers' boyfriends. None of these were the biological fathers of the children. Together, these groups represent three-fourths of the abusing males in our society.
Joseph received his vision as a 17-year-old youth, only to enjoy its fulfillment some 13 years later when finally at the age of 30, after being proven through many trials and disappointments, he was raised up to the saving of nations. Now, here is the rub. During the delay the dream tests and refines us. So, the question right now is: how do we respond to the dilemma of delayed fulfillment?
In 2012 the truth of this article (written in 2006) is still true, for it comprehensively articulated the reality that still exists in Israel; that Israel is trying to perform both an illegal and immoral act. It is trying to commit suicide. They don't remember the time when busses and cafes didn't periodically explode. The soldiers of the blood line don't know that in essence, the oligarchy that sends them to the front lines are the very people that created the strategic danger for which they are now being asked to risk their lives.
In April 1849, the Carlow convent received a visit from the Most Rev. Jean Baptiste Francois Pompallier (Vicar Apostolic of West Oceania), who came to beg the Sisters to found a community in New Zealand (where he later became the country's first bishop). Superior of St. Leo's at the time of his visit was Mother Mary Cecelia Maher. On 27th August, at Antwerp they embarked on the 'Oceanie', and arrived in Sydney Australia in early February 1850
After all these years of fighting, they now want less than what was freely offered to them in 1948, they want less than all that they lost till 1967? And they bear no animosity toward Israel? How anyone can fail to believe what Hamas has so clearly stated so many times - That Israel must be destroyed - is utterly beyond me. As long as the Palestinian Leadership desires death for their people so that they can score political power, the palestinians and Israelis will die. But one day, maybe the Israelis will have had enough. Maybe on that day, they will give the Arab World and the Palestinian Leadership what they so eagerly cry for – Martyrs! Maybe Israel will give you millions and millions of Martyrs in just one moment of time, and after that, there will be peace.
he day we stop listening to our own good judgement, to logic, to commonsense and to decency, we cease to be 'discriminatory'. When the right to think and feel, and express oneself casually in conversation, or to offer opinion on an issue, results in abuse for being racist, I believe that what we are seeing, are not people who are 'anti-discrimination', but 'closet racists', who cannot deal with their feelings and emotions, and so punish 'honest' citizens for voicing what 'they themselves' cannot.
Pope Gregory's speech honed in on one aspect of history, the decadence and fall of the Roman Empire.. The Roman Empire fell because it corrupted from within. By firstly becoming morally bankrupt to the point that even though Rome became a Theocratic state, in rejecting the former national traditions and the then current Christian Laws of God, every man and prelate sought his own pleasure and satisfaction. But when a country and its' traditions, culture, religion and moral values, are subverted from within by the deception, stupidity, ego or political and social avarice of those with no inherent patriotic love of country, the crime, for that is what it is, is not that of the perpetrators, but of the dull witted and lame of spirit, who tainted with fear or complacency, allow the benefits of their lives to be denied their heirs
It was reported in another article that President Bush in Reference to Hamas, said: "As democracy takes root, the responsibilities of governing will have a moderating influence on those who assume power in free elections. Did Bush even read what they wrote for him to say? It's easier to be a Martyr and you get 72 Virgins which is a much better pension plan than any Politician gets.
Saudi Arabia is where the money, the religious fanaticism, the Terrorists and the Oil comes from. Rather than constantly threatening Middle Eastern countries with Invasion, the USA should cut to the chase, pull out the root, and get rid of the Problem. The world already accuses the USA of instigating the Iraqi invasion for no other reason than control of Oil. So why not do it for real?
Science and Academic DisHonesty: Fake Science: False Reporting: Bias in Evidence: Today of course, we are far more scientifically advanced. Scientists are well and truly on top of that deadly disease called 'Cancer'. From all the reports that I have noted over the years, I have figured how to ensure I never get it - Don't Eat, Drink or Breathe.
What I think is interesting about the Danish Cartoon debacle, is that the Muslim world has managed to manipulate the event and get people cowering, a feat that no Jew or Christian has managed in relation to the horrendous 'religious sacrilege' that every so often raises its' head under the banner of 'freedom of artistic expression'. Europe's abandonment of the Judeo-Christian foundations of its culture during the last century has left it devoid of any firewall against the enormous encroaching pressures of militant Islam. We stand at the junction of two crossroads. One is called Hypocrisy, and the other called Truth. The Muslim world has backed us into a corner
I have read of instances where the aggrieved, many years later, sought legal redress, most commonly in the form of $'s, and complained of the 'trauma'. The question comes to mind, "if as a person one year younger than the age of consent, you suffered trauma, then why is it that now that the legal age has been lowered one year, that young people legally able to indulge, do not also suffer trauma?"
My view: Let those who are for us be with us, and let those who are not with us, be removed from our midst... Beneficiently superior to all others, and with puerile enmity toward the USA, Europe not only opened her doors to Islam, but applauded (at least in private) the Islamic attacks on the USA, and naturally, being the historical seat of Anti-Semitism, has willingly assisted the attempted destruction of Israel, whilst hypocritically calling for peace with Israel and demanding more and more concessions from that dangerous country.
This article was sent many years ago by Judson Cox of NC, who asked that I consider publishing it. The author, Brian Sears was 15 years old at the time. He had been home schooled and had recently become a regular columnist for the North Carolina Conservative. newspaper. This article is well worth the read. R.P. BenDedek January 2013
It seems that the only people who still have a democratic right to 'free speech' are those now legislated by government, to have such a right. If you do not belong to such a particular legislated group, not only do you have no right to redress, but may be victimised, penalised, charged, fined, imprisoned or even under the right circumstances, killed. History teaches us that when a civilization reaches its' peak, it begins to collapse. We live in an age where everything happens quickly, and so unlike past history, the collapse of nations and empires today, can be achieved in a very short space of time.
This is a lame duck justification for the historicity of Jesus of Nazareth. One cannot use a 'lack of evidence' as 'evidence' of anything. (Except in America where a Jury in a Law court can find a person 'not guilty' of a crime, only to see that person found 'guilty' in a civil case. Totally beyond me!?) If there were other secular records of Jesus, then it is not beyond possibility that they ceased to exist long ago. Bearing in mind however, that according to the New Testament, the Christian movement did not commence within an elitist educated class of citizens, but amongst common folk, it is hardly surprising that there are no 'public' records of him.
The bottom line is that we are being made to feel guilty for being White, Western and Wealthy, and I will include here, "Being Male". After all, it is the male of the species who was the slave owner, and is the war monger, the child abuser, the poor provider, the wife beater, and the faithless marriage partner. - I sympathise with both sides. Israel was a minority which became a majority because of the war. The Palestinians had no weapons to fight back, so they used suicide bombers. I don't condone suicide bombing, but if the shoe was on the other foot; if the Palestinians had weapons and the Jews didn't, I think the Jews would be doing the same thing.

I typed off the articles and promptly forgot about them. It was only after noticing that I had had 2000 hits on them that I decided that I had better take a serious look at the Chronology of Seder Olam Rabbah. I hope that readers will find some inspiration and understanding of the Seder Olam Rabbah through these series of articles.
Interestingly enough If I say that Americans always come across pompous and arrogant I am called a racist by those same Americans and told that I should kiss their feet because of how wonderful America is and how much it has done for Australia - thus making their response a justification for my statement. Sometimes people like to 'correct' my facts. Unfortunately, they sometimes fail to actually 'see' what I wrote, and 'react' to a perception of what I wrote.
The elite Baby Boomers turned the United States from the most prosperous countries on the planet to a country heading toward bankruptcy. It acquired a massive foreign trade deficit that will take generations to pay off. It deconstructed U.S. industries and the invited the invasion of millions of illegal aliens.
Christianity Dying out in Europe and USA: Anti-Israel readers reading this article, would do well to consider what the world, the USA and the UN has done to the Palestinian People in the name of Politics and Anti-Zionism before jumping on ideological war horses with which to attack Israel in the name of the Palestinian poor wretches. The lies that have been told to justify the continuing poverty of the Palestinian People whilst their leaders rake in Millions from World Agencies, include that Palestinian poverty is Israel's fault, when in fact, Israel's economy relies not on the alleged 'Choicest parts of Palestine', but upon education and technology. Israel's GDP rivals that of Saudi Arabia. What has Saudi Arabia contributed to the Palestinian People's Education and Technology?
This article written by Sarah Honig in 2005 is timeless and still relevant in 2011. In May 1939 America turned back to Europe the German luxury liner St. Louis with 907 distraught Jewish refugees on board, most of whom subsequently perished in the Holocaust. In 1942, due to unrelenting Arab pressure, Britain refused entry to Eretz Yisrael for the nearly 800 Jews on the rickety Struma, docked in Istanbul. All but one refugee drowned.
It was Jesus and Jesus alone who came up with a religion that insisted that the church and the state must be kept clearly separate. - Charles Carroll, signer of the Declaration of Independence, insisted: "Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure...are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments" (as quoted in Steiner, 1907, p. 475,).
The real importance is that in this Anti-Israel (Anti-Semitic) century, every effort is being made to rewrite history and present Israel and the Jews as a fictious or insignificant historical people. An ancient seal bearing an archaic Hebrew inscription dating back to the 8th century BCE has been uncovered in an archeological excavation in Jerusalem's City of David, the Israel Antiquities Authority announced Thursday. The find reveals that by 2,700 years ago, clerks and merchants had already begun to add their names to the seals instead of the symbols that were used in earlier centuries

"The degree to which the MSM, academia, and other members of the Western intelligentsia live in a fantasy world of narcissistic self-righteousness is extraordinary. But the phenomenon is not new". Maybe the Prime Minister will stand up and say, "Fellow Australians, It's OK to be proud to call yourself Australian. It's OK to be your 'Aussie Uncouth' self, as long as you are decent and law abiding!"
The degree to which the MSM, academia, and other members of the Western intelligentsia live in a fantasy world of narcissistic self-righteousness is extraordinary. But the phenomenon is not new. - (Stephen Schwartz) - I specifically talk about the issue of how we are lead astray by media and interest groups, as they seek to make us believe their particular philosophies
In addressing this issue, let's ignore the jubilation of academia, and the ecstasy of the intelligentsia, for the intelligentsia are anything but intelligent, and academia is anything but academic. They are the wise monkeys of the world, about whom St. Paul wrote, that their wisdom is less than the foolishness of God. I'm going to ignore the devastation of the religious leaders, about whom St. Paul wrote that they sought signs whilst all the time ignoring those signs of God that were plainly visible. This letter is addressed to those 'believers' whose faith has been shattered or is in doubt. This revelation has devastated churches and disillusioned believers, and the question now to be asked and answered, is 'why?'
Political correctness is just one tool in evidence of an underlying cancer slowly eating away at Western Democracy. Children are turning away from 'our' traditions, because they have failed to give them 'inner emotional stability'. Finding no ability to put their 'faith' in what Modern Society offers, they seek something 'more substantial' and more emotionally satisfying. So afraid are we of not being perceived as 'righteous', that we gladly crucify those amongst us who are not afraid to say what they think; and to further assuage our guilt we find ways of 'excusing' the terrorists. And then when the brutality of those we support becomes so personal and intense that we can no longer excuse it, we must find some politically correct 'sanitary' and acceptable means of expressing our disgust
Ramadan is OK - Christmas is Not! The family took offence at phrases such as "Christmas concert" and "Christmas disco", and the principal's greeting: "I would like to take this opportunity to wish all families a very merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and safe Christmas holiday period." It is high time that we stopped offending people by forcing unwanted words, ideas, themes and belief systems into people's minds and daily activities. Words and Ideologies that offend 'me' as an individual (and I know I am not alone in this) include such terms as: 'Political Correctness', 'Multiculturalism' and 'Words related to politics' such as Left, Right, Center; America, Iraq, United Nations; War, Peace and Triumph.
Teaching Conversational English in China: The majority of schools that hire foreigners to 'teach' their students, have no proper facilities for teaching, no aids, computers, bright and clean classrooms, nor any specific program to teach. They just DUMP the foreign teachers into overloaded classrooms full of kids, most of whom are not interested in speaking English.
He discusses in brief, what he calls the 'corruption trap', and in one section (Why Bad Governments Stay Bad) he explains that a good government is one which tries to be transparent. Although not equating 'good' with 'perfect' he explains that "Once the public comes to expect honesty, this expectation becomes self-reinforcing. Corrupt officials are exposed and denounced. Periodic reforms and house-cleanings address the worst offenses".
Religion is of course, the great murderer! Murder is the pastime of religion! In today's western 'decent' religious sphere, 'physical' murder has been replaced with 'emotional and verbal' murder. Character assassination is quite common as self righteous people go about demonstrating their 'righteousness'
Those who want to fight against 'religion in Society'; the ones who claim that they are fighting for 'personal freedoms', are in fact doing just what the Communists do. They 'oppress' religion in the name of the 'people', to protect them from being 'manipulated' by religious authority figures. Oppressing and suppressing religion, is to deny the right of people to believe and associate with like minded people, (and eventually as we have seen in Communist China, this practice fails!). Merely accepting what authority figures say without striving to understand with our minds is the furthest thing from the truth. An honest approach is one which can only be reached by clear, rational arguments.
There is only one true way to have faith, and that is to study to the extent of your capacity to prove to yourself the truths evident in our Torah: the basis for such faith is rooted in reason. People often ask me to justify or prove my 'belief' in God. I can't! Because the proof 'resides' within me, and is so intrinsically part of who I am, that to deny that G-d is, would be to deny that I am.
Lets face it, these changes are only being instigated because enough women have sounded off about their (probably exaggerated) concerns (I am racking my brain trying to recall the last time I saw a headline about such an occurrence of molestation actually occurring on a plane) or does this mean that it is occurring and these airlines know about it and are now trying to cover their collective arses, or does this just mean that more paedophile males prefer to fly Qantas and Air New Zealand and the airlines have just figgered this out and are afraid of the bad publicity.
Israel, Rafah Crossing, UNWRA, United Nations. The Egyptians had hitherto turned a blind eye to what was going on in Gaza, and at the height of the recent war, prevented Gazan entrance into Egypt. The Egyptian Government does not want Hamas in control of the crossings, and faces Islamic wrath for it's failure to act.
These photos, while eliciting sympathy for the loss, fail to illustrate how this tragedy occurred. The journalists have left many questions unasked in this incident, among them - Why did the Palestinians start shooting from positions near playing children?
When any organization needs to dispense with truth in order to promote their story and when they must manufacture justification for bloodshed and murder, we have a duty to recognise that true justification for that bloodshed and murder is a lie.
Feminism and the Legal System - Abuse of Fathers: Abuse of Men: Male Suicide: Dysfunctional Boys in Society: Anti-male Sexism: I had friend, a MATE, in the Brisbane registry yesterday after attempting to file his documents and being informed it would take up to 10 months to see his kids. He simply went to the toilets at the registry and tied his tie to the sprinkler system and hung himself in hopelessness.
Social Engineering: Cultural Marxism: The grasshopper is soon dead of a drug overdose, the Sydney Morning Herald blames it on obvious failure of government to address the root causes of despair arising from social Inequity.
Traditional Values and Social Experiments: Apart from the ceremonial position of honour it [the monarchy] occupies, it is an important check and balance against the abuse of power, being important not so much for the power it disposes, but the power it denies others. He also went on to point out that in reference to the UN's 'Human Development Index', that 'At the very top of the list, constitutional monarchies dominate. In the last survey the top five, and most of the top ten, were constitutional monarchies. This is no co-incidence' he said.
2011 Updated: Will Egypt be controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood or something similar and turn into a rigid, rabid war mongering fundamentalist Islamic state? The Fundamentalist Islamic Future of Egypt: President Hosni Mubarak ruled Egypt for more than a quarter century and had no designated successor. What is Egypt today? First and foremost it is an Islamic Country, one that has been struggling to catch up with Western economic success. But it is not exactly a success story, and if the winds of Islamic fundamentalism keep blowing as they have, coupled as they are in Egypt with a people unimpressed with the governments achievements, then before long, Egypt will once again crumble into the dust of history.
A Chinese businessman I met on the plane from Hong Kong to Wuhan explained to me that he is being paid big money to hold seminars in Mainland China. He is very happy to take the money, but admits that it is a complete waste of time, for no one will listen to him or 'learn' about business procedures. 'The Chinese businessman', he informed me, 'thinks only of the immediate sale and of making the greatest profit possible, and never considers his loss when the potential customer turns away and goes elsewhere.'
Immigration and Assimilation: Chinese Culture: - My country, Australia, is officially a multicultural country, but in fact it was always so. The 'political' entity called multiculturalism, is, in my personal opinion, something that tries to raise 'foreign cultures' to some imaginary 'aspirational height'; whose value exceeds and therefore should replace our own homespun generic varieties. (Such will never happen in China)
The U.S. Secretary of State found 'the opportunity to call forth once again for China to halt its long-standing persecution of Christians' and 'championed the government relaxing its restrictions on worship.' I don't support 'restriction on worship'. However, I personally think that 'restriction on worship' - and - 'the Communist government forbids organized worship outside state-backed 'patriotic' religious organizations' are two separate issues.
But for this writer, the current political scheming by world powers, falling as it does at this time of the festival of Purim, reminds me that nothing has changed for Jews. Hated by the world from the time Abraham entered the Promised Land, through to the Mosaic Exodus, to the fall of Samaria in 722BC, to the destruction of the Temple and the Babylonian Captivity in 586 BC, to Masada, the pogroms, the Holocaust, the Six Day War and to the ongoing troubles in Israel.
Is not Jesus the 'Word of God'? Is he not the sole center of your adoration and worship? Is it not he with whom you have a relationship? While many things might interfere with or rob you of your desire to have relationship with him, how can anything dissolve him into nothing? How can he cease to be? I am amazed at how many people 'worship' the book. 'The Word of God, The Word of God', I hear fundamentalists preach from street corners, and my question is, 'which word of God'.
Why are so many people that are so interested in human rights so quiet about these issues that are so prevalent in dictatorial states? The bottom line seems to be, that for all their concerns for human dignity, human rights, equality, non discrimination, and women's rights, they are really only concerned for themselves
Western and Eastern Mores: The cowardly failure to recognize that cultural values may clash irreconcilably has allowed practices to flourish in our midst that would earn (and deservedly so) prison sentences were they practiced by natives of our society. Nowadays no surrender is too abject for our bureaucratic multiculturalists, whose sadomasochistic delight must have known no bounds when, for example, they subsidized from public funds the construction of a car park at the President Saddam Hussein Mosque, one of the two largest in the city in which I live.
There are many different article sections at KingsCalendar to choose from, and you may read anything from Legal Arguements on Archaeology to Social Commentaries on Israel and other places, to Photographic Stories from China. If any King's Calendar chronological determination disagrees with anything in the history books, it must argue the case as to why the history books are wrong, or why the evidence for an assertion is untrustworthy. Whilst there have been many attempts to solve the chronological riddle of the Bible's synchronisms of reigns of the kings of Israel and Judah and their synchronism with other Ancient Near Eastern Nations, no other research is based on a simple mathematical formula which could, if it is incorrect, be disproved easily.
Political Correctness: Children out of control: When children have no boundaries, they push and push until they feel invincible, and the law, because of the fact that these kids are minors - treats them with kid gloves - In the 10 years of its existence, the British Human Rights Act had intensified racial and religious tensions
The media (which has such freedom) abuses it by always going for the throat and looking for the faintest hint of 'dirt' and in so doing prostitutes itself for headlines and $'s, rather than do its 'alleged' job of general and investigative reporting
As for the Communist government's fears of instability due to a lack of complete control, my personal observations are that it is only the Government which is holding this country together, and despite western belief that the Government is actively trying to hinder democratisation of China, from what I have witnessed, the birth of democracy in this country, if premature would result in not only chaos, but the very likely prospect of civil war, as various factions seek to dominate their local areas.
Those that destroy the image of God like to talk about evolution, human rights and various types of 'enlightenment' which result in such things as 'feminism', 'multiculturalism', 'political correctness', and 'societal harmony'. But when you remove this false God and replace him with biological evolution from the primordial slime, the question begs asking, 'Why should we take part in such ideals?'
I do hope that you will find not only the Research presented here to be of some value, but will find much more on site to interest you. I do for instance have a section devoted to Israel Social Commentaries, as well as a section on Seder Olam Rabbah.
I am extremely skeptical of this sort of anonymously self-published attempt to solve a huge problem that has been occupying scholars for many years. In this case, I'm not at all sure that this problem has a solution, at least of the straightforward type the author envisions
But what of the issue of the Pharaoh who did not drown in the Red Sea? Well, there is a pretty simple answer to that one. Do you remember the story of the Patriarch Joseph? He made it to second in charge of Egypt, with recognition, might and power second only to the Pharaoh himself; and when Pharaoh was busy, it was Joseph who took his place. According to the King's Calendar chronology, The Mosaic Exodus occurred at the time that Amenhotep II became Pharaoh. Upon his accession to the throne, it is recorded that he took off for parts unknown in conquest of the universe. During that time, his grandvizier Rekhmire took his place.
Since 2004 he has been writing academic articles, social commentaries and photographic 'Stories from China' both here at KingsCalendar, and formerly as a contributing columnist at Magic City Morning Star News (Maine USA) where from 2009 to 2015 he was Stand-in Editor. He currently has a column at iPatriot.com and teaches English to Business English and Flight Attendant College Students in Suzhou City Jiangsu Province People's Republic of China.)
BenDedek originally created the site to publicize his research results into the Chronology of Ancient Israel. Those results were published under the title: 'The King's Calendar: The Secret of Qumran.' Whilst there have been many attempts to solve the chronological riddle of the Bible's synchronisms of reigns of the kings of Israel and Judah and their synchronism with other Ancient Near Eastern Nations, no other research is based on a simple mathematical formula which could, if it is incorrect, be disproved easily. To date, no one has been able to dismiss the mathematical results of this research.

Definition: King's Calendar Chronological Research
The Premise: Between the 5th and 3rd centuries BCE (but continuing down to at least 104 BCE), Sectarian redactors transcribed the legitimate 'solar year' chronological records of Israel and Judah, into an artificial form, with listed years as each comprised of 12 months of 4 weeks of 7 days, or 336 days per year, thus creating a 13th artificial year where 12 solar years existed.
When the Synchronous Chronological Data provided in the Books of Kings and Chronicles for the Divided Kingdom Period are measured in years of 336 days, the synchronisms actually align. [Refer to Appendix 5. to see how it synchronises the Divided Kingdom Period]
