Photographs of the Day: Magic City Morning Star News: Topical World Photographs: Jokes on Line: Writers and Social Commentators Wanted.In an effort to do that, I began to provide daily photographs from around the world. Most of the photographs are my own, or those of friends, and sometimes they come from email sources. There is never an intention to steal someone else's photographs, but one cannot always know the exact source of a photo sent in an email. An infrequent series of articles also published at Magic City, and also from emails, are a series of jokes which are given the title: "Just for a laugh".
As a contributing columnist and part-time editor of Magic City Morning Star News, it sometimes falls to me to ensure that there is a fresh supply of daily articles at Magic City.

Another issue concerning which most people pay little attention – if they are even aware of it – is the ‘Law of Unintended Consequences.’ This little universal law often makes mush of our fantastically righteous ideologies. In Catalonia, Beersheba, The Ottomans, Tibetans and Palestinians which I published on October 30th. 2017, I pointed out that the whole issue of Catalan independence is a can of ideological worms for all of those whose hearts bleed for Palestinian Independence.
To say that there is no connection between Islam, Muslims and terror is a denial of truth and the constant refusal to acknowledge the truth is suicidal. When mad cow disease hit England they destroyed whole herds of cattle to stop the spread of the disease. Many were undoubtedly not infected. They did the same in China to the chickens when bird flu hit. The mentality in the west toward Muslims however is that we must protect the guilty in order not to cause pain and suffering to the innocent. (And of course this ultimately leads to Islamic oppression of the decent or secular or non radical Muslim).
The British took the land from the Ottoman Turks and eventually divided it between Jews and Muslims. They either had that right or they did not!... The difference between Catalonia and Tibet on the one hand and the Palestinians on the other, is that neither Catalonia nor Tibet have called for, nor stated their desire for the destruction of Spain or China, whilst the Palestinians via their leaders in Hamas and Fatah have made it quite clear that there will never be peace with the Jews until every last one of them has been thrown into the sea.
In Canada meanwhile, free speech is under threat from anticipated legislation in relation to Hate Speech laws which will, if they are introduced, make it impossible to criticize anything about Islam or Muslims. Muslim human rights activist and Clarion Project board member Raheel Raza however has appeared before the Canadian Parliament to oppose this effort to stifle free speech; an effort which she sees as promoting all sorts of social injustices.
There could be more trouble than we ever imagined headed our way on November 4th when a bunch of folks who aren’t happy about Trump and Pence attempt to overthrow the government in a Communist revolution. Groups like Antifa, Resist Fascism, and the Revolutionary Communist Party have been meeting for months to openly plan sedition and organize what they promise will be massive protests all over the country. Don’t be surprised if things become violent... A disturbing Antifa website is calling for physical violence against supporters of President Donald Trump and capitalists. The site “It’s Going Down,” which has become a resource for self-described “anti-fascist” activists, encourages violence against anyone it labels a “fascist.”
Someone who writes under the name Old Woolfy at i.Patriot.com wrote on Sept 29, 2017 that not all of those on the left agree with all of the rubbish currently being pumped out on the left in the USA. He writes in Liberal Downfall: Lunacy Right Before Our Eyes! ... Timothy Meads (Oct 01, 2017) in an article titled British Professor Shows “Sex Change Regret” is Rising, University Takes Away His Funding points out that once the preliminary research report demonstrated that many transgendered people had later come to regret their decision, the research was rejected. Honestly, whilst all the ‘feel good’ people are busy virtue signaling their support for young people who believe that they are living in the wrong body, the reality is that their support may one day come home to bite them in the ass.
And don’t get me started on all those pro forma sections on websites that REQUIRE you to fill in your details. They want your home number – which is fine, but your mobile number which is currently for a different country IS NOT ALLOWED and so you can’t proceed with whatever you needed to do. Once again the expectation that you pay $5 per day to have phone roaming while you are living overseas or on holidays.

'Finding Myself in China: A Politically Incorrect Story.' AUD$5.99
In 2004 BenDedek began 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.
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.
Free to air Academic articles set forth Apologetics for and results of his discovery of an "artificial chronological scheme" running through the Bible, Josephus, the Damascus Documents of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and Seder Olam Rabbah.

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]
