MOSCOW – Russia dramatically escalated its denunciations of American threats to attack Syrian military targets on Saturday, 31 August 2013, as President Vladimir Putin called the arguments about chemical weapons that underlie the U.S. case “utter nonsense.”

The Foreign Ministry said a U.S. attack would be a “gross violation” of international law.

The Republicans are pushing for military action in Syria – where we have no vested interest … unless their civil war spills over into other nations.

However, were the President to violate International Law, then that would constitute a clearly defined “High Crime” and justify the GOP calling for impeachment … of both President and Vice-President … as “War Crime” co-conspirators.  The GOP would then win in 2016 and that would allow them to achieve their goal of inflicting 

The Most Harm To The Most People

Achievement of which is best when not obvious

As for the alleged evidence of chemical weapons use.  Nobody in media seems to realize that Damascus is a CITY, and like all cities, the places where children are found are near shopping facilities – places that warehouse chemicals which, if violently dispersed, leave the same chemical signatures as chemical weapons.

YOU DON’T SEE IT?  Try this… Walmart and your local supermarket both stock Ammonia and Bleach … usually on shelves in immediate proximity – both when stored “in back” and on  purchase displays.

Cause their respective containers to erupt violently and the two will mix … Ammonia-Chloride Gas will form … an outlawed chemical agent originally used in WW1 and, when both cleaning agents are placed in same pale, sometimes responsible for accidental deaths in homes.  THAT ONE EXAMPLE … any competent chemist can give you dozens… and they would leave a chemical agent trace in people, soil and air.

Nobody needed to “use” chemical agents – they are found in each and every civilian neighborhood currently being attacked or serving as combat zones.   

GOP is at it again

news for Saturday 31 August 2013: Senator John McCain (R-AZ) criticized President Barack Obama’s plans for limited air strikes on Syria as “cosmetic” Friday, saying the failure of the United States to intervene in the country’s civil war was “shameful.”

Once again, the republican idea/answer is to destroy America...

We have no horse in the Syrian race... no kitten in their cat fight. Assad is in a position to destroy the group's which produce suicide bombers...but the Republicans want those groups energized against America. there most harm policy and agenda would have us take military action on faulty data and against a nation which is not a threat to us.

civil wars are great tolls for weakening a nation, or changing its direction... Syria failed to absorb the Palestinians ... failed to integrate them into its economy ... sixty years and this is the result of that failure... now we need to allow it to play out... the key is keeping the battles inside the Syrian domain... not turning attention on America as an anti-Arab state.

however, as mentioned in SAINT PAUL'S JOKE, the prophecy calls for the destruction of Rome within the next 20 years ... during the reign of the final pope ... the one who is called, or resembles, Peter ... Francis might not be Peter and he might not be the last Pope before the destruction... the prophecy might fail ... but do we want to give it reason to succeed?

the end of the world is the republican goal... watch and learn.

GOP's True Colors -- INVISIBLE

"Not a single Republican elected official stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on Wednesday with activists, actors, lawmakers and former presidents invited to mark the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington — a notable absence for a party seeking to attract the support of minority voters."

Basically the Republicans disrespected African Americans, Hispanics, and Jewish voters -- all of whom were a part of the original March on Washington.  But, as has been observed before, the Republican Party HATES AMERICA and they have clearly displayed that hatred.  Look for them to promote war in Syria -- if they get the opportunity.  They recognize that such an action would endanger Israel, and doom the only real Democracy in the Middle East -- remember, BUSH openly engaged in military action against Iraq under the pretext of 9/11 and al-Qaeda actions ... while also declaring Ben Laden, the architect of 9/11 to be, in every way, irrelevant.

The Republican goal is, and has always been, to destroy America ... to inflate the National Debt to the point where it turns America into another Greece; to destroy our educational system -- via NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND, which promises to leave all our children behind the rest of the world... behind even the Middle Eastern suicidal types;  to cripple the government by forcing sequester.

there is a basic truth -- HE WAS BORN IN CANADA AND LIVED THE FIRST FOUR YEARS OF HIS LIFE AS A CANADIAN CITIZEN.  He was not born on American soil in Canada (ie, our military base, or embassy), nor was he born there because the American government stationed his parents there.

Under the Canadian Citizenship Act of 1947, those born in Canada were automatically citizens at birth unless their parent was a foreign diplomat.  The equivalent Cuban law grants citizenship IF the parent, who is a citizen, is on an official government business.  the American Constitution requires the President and vice-President to be "NATURAL BORN" citizens -- that is, born on American Territory, and, implicitly, within an American State (also implicit, unless on official government business).

Cruz simply does not qualify ... but the TEA PARTY has no regard for the Constitution, or the Nation.
The Constitutional challenge should make it an interesting election … with the basic question: “How can a candidate who willfully violates the Constitution possibly promise, or swear, to enforce it?”

GOP Distraction 101

Coburn raises possibility of impeachment at town hall -- Fri, Aug 23, 2013 By Carrie Dann
A Republican lawmaker on Wednesday appeared to suggest that President Barack Obama is “getting perilously close” to meeting the criteria for impeachment.
“I think those are serious things, but we’re in serious times,” said
Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn during a town hall in his home state.
“And I don’t have the legal background to know if that rises to ‘high
crimes and misdemeanors,’ but I think you’re getting perilously

OK… Running the nation when the Republicans want to close it, seems, in Republican minds, to approach the definition of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors.’

NOTE VIOLATING the constitution by proposing a Canadian citizen – someone like Ted Cruz who was born in, and spent the first for years of his life as a citizen of, Canada.  Would the Republicans really nominate a Canadian to uphold a Constitution which requires the President and vice-President be natural born Americans – but not Canadians, or any other nationality, with an American mother.

OH RIGHT … “Saint Paul’s Joke” in political terms … claim to follow the book, the law, then violate it at every opportunity and attack those who do follow the LAW… You can tell who backs Republicans.


START BY VIOLATING (and promoting violation of) THE LAW

It is the Republican way of life.

We Need a New Organization

We need a New Political Watchdog Group (Based on my post about Ted Cruz: …


Whatever the name… should the Republicans nominate Cruz, the group should be prepared – have the paperwork ready for filing – to challenge the Constitutionality of the nomination in Federal Court.

The papers should be filled immediately upon the opening of the Court  the morning after the nomination – or the day of the nomination … if the Court is open when the vote tally is declared.  It is only necessary to get an injunction against the Ted Cruz name appearing on the ballots until the Supreme Court Rules … clearly any Federal Court can decide the matter … but if it is judged that a Canadian by birth can be an American President, then the Supreme Court will be called upon to make a decisive ruling.

Are Republicans STUPID or HYPOCRITS?

Really, even considering the possibility of Ted Cruz running for President … are Republicans STUPID or HYPOCRITS?

Cruz was born in Canada to parents who were Canadian Residents – mom United States citizen, dad Cuban.  So, obviously, it wasn’t like he was born at one of our Embassies, or on a Military Base where his folks were stationed – those locations are sovereign territories of the United States and therefore would constitute his being as much a “Natural Born” citizen as if he had been born in any territory or State … though being born in a territory might raise questions: Could a Porto Rican run for President?  Or someone born in Guam?

The island of Guam was controlled by Spain until 1898, when it was surrendered to the United States during the Spanish–American War and later formally ceded as part of the Treaty of Paris.  Accordingly, it has been American for 115 years … but Guam has no votes in the Electoral College, nor does it have any voting representation in Congress – which means those born there are, Constitutionally, NOT Natural Born Citizens.  Embassy and Military personnel have full voting rights, regardless of where they are stationed – even though the specific posting has no defined Congressional representative.

Those born to Embassy and Military personnel stationed abroad would be entitled to all their rights … specifically because the President ordered their parents to be in a foreign territory, and the President cannot order a disqualification from natural rights.  BUT the parent of Ted Cruz made the choice to have him born in Canada and live there for the first four years of his life; they could also have made the choice to enforce his status as a Canadian Citizen … or even made him a Cuban.  So it is clear that he is NOT a Natural Born Citizen.

Now, the Republicans questioned Obama for being born in Hawaii – two years AFTER it became a State.  When she was expecting, Obama’s mother never abandoned her country to live in a foreign land – though they did take him to live in Indonesia … but America parents have always taken their children to live in, or in some way experience, foreign lands.  That did not alter Obama’s Natural Born status … Ted Cruz has NO Natural Born status … his is a granted status, one which could be erased by an Act of Congress … without any need for a Constitutional Amendment.

So the idea that he could even be considered for nomination appears to be sufficient evidence the Republicans are Stupid, have no regard for the American Constitution, wish to precipitate a Constitutional Crisis for the purpose of sneaking the vice-Presidential nominee into the White House, and believe the average American is so stupid as to allow it (The latter appearing to be the case with regard to other nonsense the GOP has successfully gotten away with).

In any case, the very act of considering Ted Cruz, born in Canada to an American mother  – after attacking Barack Obama for being born in Hawaii to an American mother – shows the are HYPOCRITS!

2050 and counting

Coastal Flooding Damage: $1 Trillion a Year by 2050 By Tia Ghose, Staff Writer   |   August 18, 2013 01:58pm ET


Love the article title – SAINT PAUL’S JOKE … damage fits right into the “end of the world” predictions we discussed in July.

Back in 1978, when I wrote “The Prophecy Notebook” – which is now out of print, and thus a collectors item – I wrote about  the Nostradamus prediction of the “manmade mountains” near “New City” being destroyed (New City is a town north of New York City, which, at the time, was New Amsterdam).  As we know, the prediction came true, with the 9/11 destruction of the World Trade Towers.

“The Prophecy Notebook” also discussed Edgar Cayce prophecies in which the ocean would rise and the Gulf of Mexico would connect to the Great Lakes.  As I said in the book, the rise of waters would also have an impact on Florida and New York City – multiple ancient predictions or prophecies point to it.   New York City subways will be flooded – think the practice session represented by SANDY.

Things are coming together – of course, when they do, I’ll be long gone … or easily over 100 years old.

Some Republicans get it!

seems there is an exodus of elected Republicans – sadly, not a mass exodus" … Congressional Republicans who have disavowed the RNC & Party stated:

“the House Republican leadership’s utter disdain for the United States Constitution, specifically the 4th Amendment, was on full display as they worked overtime to kill the Amash Amendment which would have gone a long way toward constraining the NSA to the boundaries of the Constitution and seriously curbed their ability to conduct mass surveillance of Americans.  Be it known that we cannot and will not support nor defend these actions.

“In the United States Senate, we see Republicans all too willing to pass unconstitutional bills related to subjects such as the Internet Sales Tax and Immigration. Whether through arrogance or ignorance, they fail to understand the simple fact any revenue generating legislation must originate in the House of Representatives.

“Additionally, the Senate Republicans continue to support undeclared wars, meet in secret and supply arms to our “terrorist enemies” who we vowed to destroy after 911, and then tell us they love our troops – so long as it’s our kids and not theirs who have to go fight.

“Lastly, all too many Senate Republicans are more than willing to pass new “feel good” gun control legislation that would do nothing to stop another Sandy Hook massacre, all the while restricting 2nd Amendment rights of law abiding American citizens. We cannot support nor defend these actions in good faith.”

Here in Maine they declared: “the Republican Party has lost its way and the donors know it.”

OF COURSE on the national level, those who wish to destroy America are still going strong.  The Republican Party is the Anti-freedom, pro-murder party it has always been.  It was that way when it pushed Prohibition, pushed the Vietnam “WAR” (which was never a Constitutionally legal war – Congress MUST DECLARE a war against a defined enemy, or it is not legal… Iran, Iraq, and Afghanistan are also illegal Republican ‘wars’, or should we be honest and call them “MURDER FESTIVALS” …)

The anti-Abortion policies are the same murder festival agenda:  No abortion after 22 weeks, even if the fetus has no brain and is therefore legally dead, or will certainly kill the mother (and itself) if there is an attempt to carry it to term.  OH YES! and make sure that this dead fetus and its mother are denied medical coverage … so if she does survive she & her partner need to pay enormous medical bills, and if she dies, her partner will be both grieving and saddled with the enormous cost – a cost which could have been avoided, and saved her life, if the fetus had been terminated.


It is the Republican Way to Govern.

Someone gets it.

from THE BLAZE: “MSNBC host Ed Schultz unleashed Saturday on Christians who oppose President Obama’s landmark healthcare law, branding them as “phony Christians” and saying the repeal of the law would certainly result in the death of innocent children.”

Phony Christians are the target in the KORAN…  Phony Christians are the spawn of the St Augustan… Phony Christians are the ones who promoted PROHIBITION, undercut 70% of the Federal Tax Revenue, inspired criminal to form syndicates, and forced taxation of the poor … while being racist, anti-Semitic, anti-immigration, and anti any and all things which could make the nation stronger.

Saint Paul’s Joke … phony Christians rule.  They double the Federal Deficit … they reduce taxes on the wealthiest and they encourage the wealth to export jobs … they give incentives  to the rich to make more money (to export and shield from taxes), calling them stimulus packages; they take money any from those on Social Security – which is money that goes to  people who really spend it in communities.

The Phony Christians attack medical care – they would kill the Good Samaritan and chastise Jesus for pointing him out as an example of what should be Christian behavior (normal good Jewish Behavior).

But this goes with being anti-Semitic … which is another term for those who would murder a Resurrected Jesus before he could come to power.

Right-Wing Christians are the reason terrorist target Americans.

Obamacare is the name of a Federal program which promises to expand  medical care to the masses, and save lives … Military spending used for the purpose of killing third world citizens is the program  (such as the BUSH WARS on Islam) is the Right-Wing Christian answer to  Christian morality.  DO NOT SAVE LIVES – TAKE THEM!  It is the Christian thing to do… or they wouldn’t vote for it, or anyone who promotes it.



WHICH IS TO SAY: the Christian way.

No Child Left Behind–YOU WERE WARNED!

Back when Bush was pushing No Child Left Behind and the destruction of our educational system (testing successive years against each other, rather than the same students in successive stages – as in start of year and end of year – meant no progress was being measured, not even a specific teachers effect on the same students was tested, so effectively nothing was done beyond having reason to cut funding).

Now a retiring High School Teacher has pointed to a decade of No Child Left Behind and said it failed [Washington Post 7 August 2013]:

 No Child Left Behind went into effect for the 2002–03 academic year, which means that America’s public schools have been operating under the pressures and constrictions imposed by that law for a decade. Since the testing requirements were imposed beginning in third grade, the students arriving in your institution have been subject to the full extent of the law’s requirements. While it is true that the U.S. Department of Education is now issuing waivers on some of the provisions of the law to certain states, those states must agree to other provisions that will have as deleterious an effect on real student learning as did No Child Left Behind—we have already seen that in public schools, most notably in high schools.

In many cases, students would arrive in our high school without having had meaningful social studies instruction, because even in states that tested social studies or science, the tests did not count for “adequate yearly progress” under No Child Left Behind. With test scores serving as the primary if not the sole measure of student performance and, increasingly, teacher evaluation, anything not being tested was given short shrift.

… most of the tests being used consist primarily or solely of multiple-choice items, which are cheaper to develop, administer, and score than are tests that include constructed responses such as essays. Even when a state has tests that include writing, the level of writing required for such tests often does not demand that higher-level thinking be demonstrated, nor does it require proper grammar, usage, syntax, and structure. Thus, students arriving in our high school lacked experience and knowledge about how to do the kinds of writing that are expected at higher levels of education.

… responses are called “free response questions” and are graded by a rubric that is concerned primarily with content and, to a lesser degree, argument. If a student hits the points on the rubric, he or she gets the points for that rubric. There is no consideration of grammar or rhetoric, nor is credit given or a score reduced based on the format of the answer. A student who takes time to construct a clear topic sentence and a proper conclusion gets no credit for those words. Thus, a teacher might prepare the student to answer those questions in a format that is not good writing by any standard.

… the AP course required that a huge amount of content be covered, meaning that too much effort is spent on learning information and perhaps insufficient time on wrestling with the material at a deeper level.

In high-need schools, resources not directly related to testing are eliminated.

… If you, as a higher education professional, are concerned about the quality of students arriving at your institution, you have a responsibility to step up and speak out. You need to inform those creating the policies about the damage they are doing to our young people, and how they are undermining those institutions in which you labor to make a difference in the minds and the lives of the young people you teach as well as in the fields in which you do your research.

Students have not been prepared for the kind of intellectual work that Colleges and Universities have every right to expect of them.  So the American Educational System has achieved what the Republicans seek it to achieve –THE MOST HARM TO THE MOST PEOPLE.

Getting Ready For War

Data sources: Pew, State Department (Max Fisher/Washington Post)

The Obama administration’s decision to close over two dozen U.S. diplomatic facilities appears to be a security precaution in reaction to both a legitimate terrorism threat.  However, If we are going to all out war in the Middle East, getting the diplomats out is the first step.

Remember 2035 begins the thirty year “era of Judgment”… before that, the Vatican must be attacked and Rome destroyed (the 900 year old Malachy prediction).  Destroy Rome and there is a period of turmoil, conflict, the army in white emerges, and all hell breaks out.

The beauty – people will dismiss this idea and so they will ensure it will happen.
