Sunday Devotional: Be good

Jesus with angels

Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43

Jesus proposed another parable to the crowds, saying:
“The kingdom of heaven may be likened
to a man who sowed good seed in his field.
While everyone was asleep his enemy came
and sowed weeds all through the wheat, and then went off.
When the crop grew and bore fruit, the weeds appeared as well.
The slaves of the householder came to him and said,
‘Master, did you not sow good seed in your field?
Where have the weeds come from?’
He answered, ‘An enemy has done this.’
His slaves said to him,
‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’
He replied, ‘No, if you pull up the weeds
you might uproot the wheat along with them.
Let them grow together until harvest;
then at harvest time I will say to the harvesters,
“First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles for burning;
but gather the wheat into my barn.”’”

Then, dismissing the crowds, he went into the house.
His disciples approached him and said,
“Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field.”
He said in reply, “He who sows good seed is the Son of Man,
the field is the world, the good seed the children of the kingdom.
The weeds are the children of the evil one,
and the enemy who sows them is the devil.
The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels.
Just as weeds are collected and burned up with fire,
so will it be at the end of the age.
The Son of Man will send his angels,
and they will collect out of his kingdom
all who cause others to sin and all evildoers.
They will throw them into the fiery furnace,
where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth.
Then the righteous will shine like the sun
in the kingdom of their Father.
Whoever has ears ought to hear.”

Senate Democrats’ bill will remove all restrictions on abortion – past, present & future

This is why, instead of Democrats, I call them Demonrats.

Various states of our disUnited States of America have been making progress on protecting the lives of the unborn. But if Senate Demonrats have their way, all that progress will be obliterated by one bill.

On Tuesday, July 15, 2014, Senate Demonrats held a hearing on S. 1696, a bill that wipes out virtually every pro-life law across the country, including state laws that came into play in Pennsylvania that held late-term abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell accountable for killing babies who were born alive and killed during a gruesome late-term abortion procedure.

S. 1696 has the deceptive Orwellian title of the “Women’s Health Protection Act” even though it revokes protections for women and their unborn children. Instead, the bill would be far-reaching in how it would topple virtually every pro-life law passed in states across the country.

The bill has been heavily promoted by pro-abortion activist groups since its introduction last November, although it has been largely ignored by the mainstream news media. S. 1696 has 35 Senate cosponsors, all Demonrats, including 9 of the 10 Democrats on the Judiciary Committee. The chief sponsor of the bill is Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Ct.).

Richard Blumenthal

S. 1696 is an updated and expanded version of the old “Freedom of Choice Act” that was championed by Barack Obama when he was a senator. The new bill would invalidate nearly all existing state limitations on abortion, and prohibit states from adopting new limitations in the future, including various types of laws specifically upheld as constitutionally permissible by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Among the laws that the bill would nullify are:

  • Requirements to provide women seeking abortion with specific information on their unborn child and on alternatives to abortion.
  • Laws providing reflection periods (waiting periods).
  • Laws allowing medical professionals to opt out of providing abortions.
  • Laws limiting the performance of abortions to licensed physicians.
  • Bans on elective abortion after 20 weeks.
  • Meaningful limits on abortion after viability.
  • Bans on the use of abortion as a method of sex selection.
  • Invalidate most previously-enacted federal limits on abortion, including federal conscience protection laws and most, if not all, limits on government funding of abortion.

The above laws that would be nullified by the truly diabolical S. 1696 generally have broad public support in the states in which they are enacted, including support from substantial majorities of women.

During the Senate hearing, Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Committee, told lawmakers that the bill is a radical departure from laws that have helped stopped late-term abortions and helped hold abortion practitioners like Gosnell accountable:

“Dr. Kermit Gosnell of Philadelphia is only the most notorious recent example of a certain type of abortion provider who flourishes under the aura of political immunity generated by pro-abortion advocacy groups in some jurisdictions. There are many others who have demonstrated repeatedly that they should not be allowed anywhere near pregnant women or their unborn children, some of whom have been operating in multiple states for many years, shielded from real accountability by the timidity of state officials who are weary of offending the abortion industry and the political activist groups that fly cover for that industry.”

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins says his group opposes the bill for similar reasons:

“Senator Blumenthal’s bill is extreme and out of touch with the views of millions of Americans on both sides of the abortion debate. It is deeply troubling that the Senate Judiciary Committee would consider a measure that puts vulnerable women in greater danger by undermining clinic health standards that are grounded in common sense. The measure even revokes laws requiring abortionists to be licensed physicians and any restrictions on late-term abortions. These laws are vital to avoid a future Kermit Gosnell house of horror. It is my hope that the Senate reject this bill and instead work to protect unborn children that can feel excruciating pain from abortion, and pass the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, S. 1670, sponsored by Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC).”

ACTION: Contact your senators and urge STRONG opposition to the bill.

Wayne Allyn Root on the Murder of the Middle Class

What is the Murder of the Middle Class?
By Wayne Allyn Root

My new book, “The Murder of the Middle Class” launches today Monday July 14th across America. It’s about how America, the greatest nation in world history, is being destroyed, plundered and looted by the premeditated “Murder of the Middle Class.” This is no accident, mistake, or coincidence. This is a purposeful plan. This is the boldest, grandest criminal conspiracy in world history.

Although the man at the center of this massive world-class fraud is Barack Obama, there are many moving parts and co-conspirators. These include famous billionaire businessmen, corporate CEOs, the Federal Reserve, Wall Street bankers, central bankers, government employee unions, the IRS, EPA, NSA, the Bar Association, assorted communists and America-haters, and even some well-known D.C. establishment Republicans. It’s quite a shocking list of conspirators.

Lies and fraud are at the center of this “murder of the middle class.” President Obama and various big government politicians need to distract the middle class from their real agenda. Lies are their WMD- weapon of mass distraction.

So they claim Obamacare is about “saving the sick and uninsured”…when the real objective is income redistribution (through higher taxes and higher premiums) to make the middle class poor and dependent on government.

They claim environmental regulations and green energy will save us from global warming…when the real objective is bankrupting the middle class by tripling utility bills, gas bills and grocery bills.

They claim immigration reform is about “protecting innocent children”…when the real objective is to create 12 million new low-wage employees in the labor force…depress middle class wages for generations to come…create 12 million future Democratic voters…and assign all of them lawyers at the expense of middle class taxpayers, to enrich the Bar Association, the biggest donor to the Democrat Party.

They claim higher taxes are to “create equality”… when the real objective is income redistribution and starving the biggest donors to conservative causes and candidates- small business and the middle class.

They claim higher education spending is “for the kids,” …when the real objective is enriching teachers unions so they can funnel hundreds of millions back to Democrat politicians.

They claim bailing out GM was to “save jobs”…when the real goal was saving bloated pensions for auto union members, whose unions kicked back hundreds of millions to Democrat politicians.

The Fed claims quantitative easing is “to save the economy”…when the real goal was making crony capitalist Warren Buffett $12.7 billion richer last year, while the children and unborn grandchildren of middle class taxpayers owe back $17 trillion in debt used to fund a fixed craps game on Wall Street.

It’s always about lying to cover-up the real agenda of murdering the middle class; redistributing wealth; making it impossible for small business to compete with big business; rewarding lobbyists, lawyers and crony capitalists; keeping politicians in office for life; and putting big government in control of our every move.

But the biggest lie of all is when politicians like Obama claim, “It’s all okay. Things are getting better. We’re in a recovery. Look away, there’s nothing to see here.”

It’s not okay. This author was just notified by his health insurance company that my family’s policy has been cancelled. When Obama was elected my bill was $500 per month. Today it’s $1700 per month. But now my family will have no insurance at all, because of Obamacare. Tens of millions of middle class Americans will soon receive the same notice. This is no mistake. This was premeditated fraud upon the middle class.

My grocery bills have skyrocketed. How about yours? My electric bills are at all-time highs. Gas prices have doubled since Obama became president. How can middle class people survive, without becoming dependent on government? Ah, that’s the point.

All this while the economy is in crisis and collapse. The GDP for the first quarter was NEGATIVE 2.9%, one of the worst showings in history, six years after Obama’s trillion dollar stimulus promised to “save” the economy. That stimulus went to Obama’s voters (the poor) and Obama’s donors (the super rich). But the bill (in the form of debt) goes to the middle class for decades to come.

No, things are not alright. Here are just a few of the facts from my new book, “The Murder of the Middle Class:”

China is set to pass America as the world’s #1 economy based on consumer spending. THIS YEAR. It will be the first time since 1872 that America has not been the #1 economy in the world.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2616806/American-dollar-hits-wall-China-prepares-leap-place-worlds-largest-economy-end-year.html

For the first time in history America’s middle class isn’t #1 in the world. Canada’s middle class has passed us.

70% of Americans believe we are still in the middle of the economic crisis, or that the worst is yet to come. And, they are correct.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-06-04/7-10-americans-believe-crisis-not-over-or-worst-yet-come-52-cant-afford-their-homes

There is no doubt the great American middle class is being murdered. I’ve spent the last year writing the “Murder of the Middle Class” to give all Americans the information, tools and courage to save the middle class and the American Dream. This fight is just getting started. Get informed and join the battle. God Bless America.

Target Says No to Guns: Store Assaults Begin Immediately

On July 2 of this year, Target issued a new policy asking customers not to bring guns to its stores. That same day, a Target shopper in Gainesville, Georgia was robbed at gunpoint in the parking lot, and on July 5, a woman shopper at a Target store in Atlanta was punched in the head in the store’s parking lot by a black male, who then stole her car and attempted to run her over.

Lest, you think Target is merely another well-meaning, but misguided company, take a look at these ads from one of their recent catalogues, targeted at children:

For those who don’t understand the symbolism, the “OK” sign with three fingers spread out spells “6-6-6″, and covering one eye is a symbol of Lucifer just like the eye on the pyramid on our one dollar bills. I believe it was Franklin Roosevelt, the second worst president of all time, who put all-seeing eye of satan on our money.

Compare Target’s children with these photos featuring several well known satanists, and remember that another big company that is anti-gun and anti-Constitution, Starbucks, also has a history of satanic symbolism.

CDC Says Just 2.3 % Of The Population Self Identify As Gay Or Bisexual

Here’s an article from The Washington Post giving what I believe are probably more accurate percentages of the gay/lesbian/bisexual/transtesticular/transcontinental/transohyougettheidea

LOL 

OK folks, I don’t know about you, but this just makes no sense. Why are all these corporations bending over backwards ( Oops) to go out of their way to tick off the 96.6 % of the Country who are not homosexual? I mean they could just take a neutral stance. But no they come out and embrace what many find wrong.  Dr. Eowyn has a post just today on Betty Crocker doing just this. HERE.

I’m telling you this is a well orchestrated plan. 

—————————————————————————————–

 July 15

Less than 3 percent of the U.S. population identify themselves as gay, lesbian or bisexual, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Tuesday in the first large-scale government survey measuring Americans’ sexual orientation.

The National Health Interview Survey, which is the government’s premier tool for annually assessing Americans’ health and behaviors, found that 1.6 percent of adults self-identify as gay or lesbian, and 0.7 percent consider themselves bisexual.

That’s 2.3 % for those keeping count.   :)

The overwhelming majority of adults, 96.6 percent, labeled themselves as straight in the 2013 survey.

Let me go out on a limb here. If I was in marketing and went to my boss and said ” Let’s go after 2.3% of market while we piss off the other 96.6%” How long would I have a job? No, friends, something is rotten in Denmark. It just doesn’t make sense.

An additional 1.1 percent declined to answer, responded “I don’t know the answer” or said they were “something else.”

Folks you just have to love the “I don’t know ” people of the world.

I don't know either.

I don’t know either.

The figures offered a slightly smaller assessment of the size of the gay, lesbian and bisexual population than other surveys, which have pegged the overall proportion at closer to 3.5 or 4 percent. In particular, the estimate for bisexuals was lower than in some other surveys.

In other words the other surveys were all wishful thinking!

The inclusion of the sexual-orientation question in an influential survey used to guide government funding and research decisions was viewed as a major victory for the gay community, which has struggled with a dearth of data about its special health needs.

World Health Organization: HIV “exploding” among homosexual men

HIV HIV or human immunodeficiency virus is the virus that can lead to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, or AIDS. Unlike some other viruses, the human body cannot get rid of HIV. That means that once you have HIV, you have it for life.

The virus is spread through body fluids such as blood, semen (cum), vaginal fluids, and breast milk. In the United States, HIV is most commonly passed from one person to another through unprotected anal or vaginal sex and through sharing needles or other drug equipment.

Great strides in tackling HIV/AIDS have been made across the world, with the number of new infections plunging by a third between 2001 and 2012, when 2.3 million people contracted the virus.

But the AFP reports that on July 11, 2014, the UN health agency World Health Organization (WHO) warned that HIV infections are rising among homosexual men in many parts of the world.

Gottfried Hirnschall, who heads WHO’s HIV department, calls the rise “exploding.” Infection rates are rising again among men who have sex with men – the group at the epicentre of AIDS pandemic when it first emerged 33 years ago, he told reporters in Geneva. A younger generation that has grown up among new treatments that make it possible to live with HIV are less focused on the disease. Today, this group is 19 times more likely than the general population to be infected by HIV. In Bangkok for instance, the incidence of HIV among men who have sex with men stands at 5.7%, compared to less than 1% for the overall population.

In its new recommendations for combating the HIV/AIDS pandemic, published on July 11, for the first time WHO “strongly recommends men who have sex with men consider taking antiretroviral medicines as an additional method of preventing HIV infection”.

US authorities made the same recommendation in May.

Taking pre-exposure prophylaxis medication, for instance as a single daily pill combining two antiretrovirals, in addition to using condoms, has been estimated to cut HIV incidence among such men by 20-25%, which means up to one million new infections among sodomites over 10 years can be averted.

The new guidelines also apply to other high-risk groups, such as transgender people, prisoners, people who inject drugs, and sex workers. Together with male homosexuals, these high-risk groups  account for about half of all new HIV infections worldwide.

Globally, transgender women and injecting drug users are around 50 times more likely than the general population to contract HIV, while sex workers have a 14-fold higher chance of getting infected, according to WHO.

Hirnschall said “Progress is however uneven” and warned that failing to address the still sky-high HIV incidence among certain groups was putting the overall battle against the deadly disease at risk.

Promoting condom use, wide-spread voluntary HIV testing, treating at-risk individuals with antiretrovirals, voluntary male circumcision and needle exchange programs are among WHO’s recommendations for battling the disease.

HIV symptoms

I notice abstinence, the virtues of prudence and of honesty (informing your sex partner you are infected) are not among WHO’s recommendations. [Snark]

In fact, on page 3 of the International Planned Parenthood Federation’s (IPPF) guide for young people living with HIV, “Healthy, Happy and Hot,” the IPPF actually says that those with HIV have “the right” to not disclose their HIV status to their sex partners!

It appears that like the IPPF, the be-all and end-all of WHO is an active sex life — “Do As Thou Wilt” — which is the central principle of the Church of Satan.

A Can’t Miss .50 Cal Round. Kinda Cool/Scary

What will those folks at DARPA think of next? Watch quick vid, and be amazed.

 ====================================================

Sniper heaven: Pentagon’s self-guided bullets leave enemies nowhere to hide

 

The research arm dedicated to creating breakthrough technology for the Pentagon has shared video of a successful test of self-guided bullets.

The Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency conducted a test April 21 with Teledyne Scientific & Imaging. Video posted to YouTube earlier this month shows a round with a ballistic path far from its intended target. As the round makes its way along the errant trajectory it suddenly curves, corrects itself and hits the intended target.

DARPA had a promising prototype for its Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordinance (EXACTO) .50-caliber bullets in 2012, but the new video confirms that the agency has perfected the technology.

“The Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance system seeks to improve sniper effectiveness and enhance troop safety by allowing greater shooter standoff range and reduction in target engagement timelines,” DARPA’s website stated.

The new rounds will make American snipers even more efficient, allowing them to acquire moving targets in any environment. A self-guided bullet makes eliminating a target with one shot more likely, which better safeguards the sniper’s exact location.

Republicans dither while Obama and Mexico conspire in Invasion of Illegals

FingerObama the POS

Not only is the POS not stopping the tidal wave of criminals and unaccompanied minors youths crossing into the United States ILLEGALLY, not only is the POS not deporting the thousands and thousands who are surging across the border ILLEGALLY, not only is the POS not enforcing U.S. immigration laws and enforcing border security, he actually declared the “surge” will continue.

The POS also refused calls for him to visit the border to look at the crisis he himself has caused, saying he has no plan to visit the border.

Then this POS has the nerve to demand from Congress already beleaguered taxpayers $3.7 billion in supplemental funding, half of which he said would help Customs and Border Patrol deal with the “humanitarian crisis” of thousands of unaccompanied children entering the U.S. illegally every week.

But as the Daily Mail reports, only about 3% of the $3.7 BILLION would be dedicated to strengthening America’s southwest border with Mexico.

Mexico

Dave Gibson reports for Examiner that on July 7, 2014, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Guatemalan president Otto Perez Molina held a joint press conference to officially announce an agreement to make it easier for those making the illegal journey from Central America to cross into Mexico and then to the United States.

Enrique Peña Nieto & Otto Perez MolinaThe malicious agreement is called the Southern Border Program to Improve Passage, which will provide more protection and even emergency medical care to those making their way north, who will be provided a Regional Visitor’s Card that allows them to remain in Mexico for 72 hours — more than enough time to reach the US/Mexican border by train.

Although the program officially grants the 72-hr Visitor’s Card to only illegal aliens from Guatemala and Belize,  the program will undoubtedly benefit anyone who makes it to the border, which would explain why our Border Patrol stations are currently overflowing with illegal aliens from El Salvador, Honduras, and other places as well. (Chinese have been spotted among the surge of illegals; Muslim prayer rugs have been spotted along the Arizona border.)

The program will also give special protection and even financial assistance to unaccompanied minors youths now pouring across our border.

All of which means:

  1. The surge of illegal aliens into the U.S. will increase even more. Already, 300,000 have surged across the border since this April.
  2. Confirmation what many of us have known all along: The current chaos on the border which President Lucifer  dishonestly calls a “humanitarian crisis,” actually is the result of a collusion — i.e., a CONSPIRACY — between the governments of Mexico, Guatemala and the Obama regime.

GOP

So what is the Republican Party doing about this?

Answer: The GOP elites are dithering, unable to decide whether to impeach or sue the SOB-POS Man of Sin squatting in the White House.

As reported by Adam Chandler for The Wire, on one side are those who call for impeachment, not just because of the federal government’s refusal to enforce border control, but over a litany of issues including Benghazi, IRS, NSA . . . . The pro-impeachment GOPers include Sarah Palin (who said in an op-ed for Breitbart, “The many impeachable offenses of Barack Obama can no longer be ignored. If after all this he’s not impeachable, then no one is.”) and a number of House Republicans – Reps. Lou Barletta (Pa.), Kerry Bentivolio (Mich.), Paul Broun (Ga.), Michael Burgess (Texas), Jason Chaffetz (Utah), Blake Farenthold (Texas), Michele Bachmann (Minn.) and Louie Gohmert (Texas).

Palin and the House Republicans got a quick response from House Speaker John Boehner: “I disagree.”

Boehner wants to take a different route — sue Obama for his use of executive orders. (Arit John broke down Boehner’s lawsuit rationale here.)

Palin’s response to Boehner’s “I disagree” was equally swift: “You don’t bring a lawsuit to a gunfight. There is no place for lawyers on the frontline. Where are the front lines in America? They are our borders.”

And while the Republican elites bicker and dither, President Lucifer is proceeding to destroy whatever is remaining of the America we once knew.

Bill Gates funds contraceptive/abortion microchip that’s remote controlled

Melinda and Bill GatesMelinda & Bill Gates

Bill Gates is the multibillionaire founder of Microsoft, whose net worth is estimated to be a mind-boggling $79.1 billion.

Via his eponymous foundation, Gates is also famous for his philanthropy, a word that the dictionary defines as “the desire to promote the welfare of others, expressed especially by the generous donation of money to good causes.”

One of the funding outlets of his Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation are vaccines for poor people in the Third World. But a Freudian slip that Gates made in a speech at the 2010 TED conference belies the philanthropic purpose of those vaccines.

In his speech, Gates was on the subject of how to reduce global warming by lowering the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) from Earth’s atmosphere. A major way to do that is to reduce the world’s population.

Beginning at the 1:03 mark in the video below, Gates said:

“The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a REALLY great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health service, we could lower that by perhaps 10 to 15 percent.”

You heard it. Gates was championing vaccines as a way to lower the world’s population.

Since when do vaccines, which immunize us against diseases, curb reproduction and in so doing reduce the rate of population growth?

Gates’ latest initiative is even more sinister.

Ben Johnson reports for LifeSiteNews, July 8, 2014, that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is funding the development of a contraceptive microchip that can be remotely controlled to release hormones that can act as abortifacients — drugs that induce abortion — into a woman’s body for up to 16 years.

The chip, which measures 20 x 20 x 7 millimeters (0.79 x 0.79 x 0.28 inches), can be implanted under the skin of a woman’s buttocks, upper arm, or abdomen in 30 minutes. The device contains a 16-year reservoir of the drug levonorgestrel, releasing 30 micrograms a day – but the dosage can be altered by remote control, as well.

Gates microchipThe technology was originally intended, and tested, to release osteoporosis medication in elderly women, but Dr. Robert Langer of MIT changed his focus to contraception after a personal discussion with Bill Gates. Gavin Corley, a biomedical engineer, told the BBC the technology could be used to achieve contraceptive targets in the developing world, indicating “a humanitarian application as opposed to satisfying a first-world need.”

The announcement comes as the Gates Foundation is spearheading an international, multi-billion-dollar push for expanding birth control in the developing world, bringing charges from pro-life and political that they are engaged in global population control.

There are at least 4 reasons to object to the Gates contraceptive microchip:

1. The chip isn’t just a contraceptive; it is also an abortifacient

Numerous studies have indicated that levonorgestrel, the hormone used both by this chip and the morning after pill, has a strong anti-implantation effect, meaning it acts in part by preventing a newly-conceived embryo from implanting in the uterus. One study found the hormone only has an “effectiveness rate” of 49% when blocking ovulation alone.

At a minimum, the contraceptive microchip that acts as an abortifacient puts the lie to Melinda Gates’ recent denial that the Gates Foundation “has decided not to fund abortion” as part of its efforts. The Catholic Church is opposed to both artificial contraceptives and abortion; the latter is an “intrinsic,” i.e., non-negotiable, evil. But Melinda professes to be Roman Catholic.

2. The hormones in the microchip can negatively affect women’s health

Fr. Shenan Boquet, president of Human Life International, warns that “Administration of dangerous hormonal contraceptive drugs, whether through new technologies or traditional oral methods, should not be considered a boon for women’s health, as the serious risks of these drugs are better known every day. Our concerns are only heightened when we see reporters promoting this effort of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation without mention of the harm done to women by other versions of these drugs, as if this only promises good health and empowerment for women. This isn’t reporting; it’s propaganda, and it is especially dangerous given the risks involved.”

3. PRIVACY CONCERNS

Civil libertarians worry about how hackers – and rogue government agencies – could exploit that technology. John Whitehead, a constitutional attorney and founder of The Rutherford Institute, warns: “Whatever that chip transmits will go into a government file. The chip may actually know when you’re having sex. So, there will be no privacy, no.”

4. HackERS

One source of privacy violation is hackers.

A remote-controlled computer chip potentially leaves the patient’s health at the mercy of anyone with sufficient computer skills. Dr. Robert Farra of MIT said the subcutaneous computer chip must be given “secure encryption” so that “someone across the room cannot re-program your implant.” To date, that security has not been developed.

In April, Wired magazine reported on a two-year effort led by Scott Erven that successfully hacked hospitals’ drug-infusion pumps, allowing them to alter the amount of morphine administered to patients; accessed defibrilators, creating unnecessary shocks or preventing life-saving shocks to restart a patient’s heart; refrigeration units that house blood, changing the temperature and potentially allowing the blood supply to spoil; viewed X-rays; and had the ability to change patients’ online medical records.

Another is government. Whitehead extensively researched the extent of government surveillance for his new book, A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State.

Whitehead warns about the potential for abuse and violations of the Fourth Amendment: “Here’s what I’ve learned about government – whatever technology we have, theirs is much greater. The FBI is collecting a huge DNA database now.” The Supreme Court upheld widespread DNA collection in its 2013 Maryland v. King decision. “I’m afraid the chip could be activated in some harmful way,” such as a future eugenics program. “It could basically bar certain people from having children.” But instead of protecting citizens’ liberties, “Congress has given us no guidelines” about invasive forms of technology. Whitehead believes that is because Congress is “funded by the same groups that are providing the technology.”

Pre-clinical testing of the new microchip begins next year. Langer’s development team at MicroCHIPS Inc., based in Lexington, Massachusetts, hopes to introduce the product by 2018, pending approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Fr. Boquet warns, “The Gates Foundation and its partners are likely to continue this assault on women’s health until a sustained world-wide backlash ensues.”

How to Spot a Liar

Humans deceive.

That’s the plain and painful truth.

In the increasingly dark times we live in, we need to practice spiritual jujitsu or self-defense, and hone our ability to discern when someone is lying to us, especially if that someone is a politician because the lies will affect our lives, negatively.

Pamela Meyer is the author of the book, LieSpotting: Proven Techniques to Detect Deception. In this TED lecture in 2011, she offers many very useful tips on how to spot a liar.

Below are the notes I took from the video. [Words between brackets colored teal are mine.]

Some Facts About Lying

1. On any given day, we lie or are lied to from 10 to 200 times.

2. Lying is a cooperative act: A lie is effective only when another cooperates with it because it’s something we want. That is why although we say we’re against lying, covertly (secretly) we’re for it.

3. We lie 3 times within 10 minutes of meeting a stranger.

4. We lie more to strangers than to people we know.

5. Extraverts lie more than introverts. [Politicians are extraverts!]

6. Men lie 8 times more about themselves than women; women lie more to protect others.

7. We lie once in every 10 interactions with our spouse. The number drops to 3 in interactions with an unmarried partner.

8. The more intelligent the species, the larger the cerebral cortex, the more likely is the species to be deceptive. That suggests lying has an evolutionary advantage.

9. Human beings lie from the very beginning [Original Sin: We are born tinder for sin (fomes peccati)]:

  • Babies already deceive: They fake a cry, then pause and watch to see if anyone buys their fake crying.
  • One-year-olds know how to conceal.
  • Two-year-olds bluff.
  • Five-year-olds lie outright, e.g., they manipulate with flattery.
  • Nine-year-olds have mastered the coverup.
  • By college age, humans like to their parents in one out of 5 interactions.
  • By the time we enter the working world, we’re immersed in lies and deception.

Lie Spotting: How to Spot a Liar

There are two patterns [or modes] of deception: Speech and Body Language.

1. Speech:

  • Non-contracted denial: A denial that is over-determined, i.e., employs formal, instead of informal, language to deny, e.g., Bill Clinton said “I did not have sex with that woman . . . Miss Lewinsky.”
  • Distancing language: Use of language that (unconsciously) distances the speaker from the subject. Example: “I did not have sex with that woman.”

  • Qualifying language: e.g., saying “to tell the truth” or “in all candor.”
  • Repeating the question in its entirety. [My guess: this is a tactic to buy the liar more time to think of how to lie.]
  • Over-sharing: Peppering one’s account with too much detail.

2. Body language:

Freud said, “No mortal can keep a secret. If his lips are silent, he chatters with his fingertips.”

  • Liars, instead of fidgeting, actually freeze their upper bodies when they’re lying.
  • Liars look you in the eye a little too much, to compensate for the myth that liars avoid eye contact.
  • Liars smile a fake smile, i.e., they smile only with their mouth, but not with their eyes, which can’t be faked.

  • Attitude: An honest person is cooperative, on your side; enthusiastic, willing and helpful in getting to the truth, willing to brainstorm, provide details; feels infuriated if falsely accused, not just in flashes but throughout the entire course of the interview or conversation; favors strict, instead of lenient punishment for transgressors. A deceptive person is withdrawn; looks down; lowers his voice; pauses; peppers his story with lots of and irrelevant details; tells the story in strict chronological order.
  • Giveaway body language (beginning at 11:40 mark):
    • Shaking our head when we say “yes” (e.g., Democrat VP candidate John Edwards, 12:00 to 12:30 mark in video).
    • Shrugging our shoulders when we tell a convincing lie.
    • Duping delight: Smiling with delight at getting away with a terrible crime (e.g., O. J. Simpson).

    • Masked expression: Be on the lookout for spotting the real expression that’s masked or concealed by the fake expression, which leaks out in a flash, e.g., murderers often mask sadness. The most important and dangerous masked expression that we need to look out for is CONTEMPT, i.e., thinking oneself as being superior to others; regarding others with scorn. The masked expression of contempt is marked by one lip corner pulled up and in, e.g., Dick Cheney.

Obama gives America the finger

Other indicators of deception:

  • Liars shift their eye-blink rate.
  • Liars point their feet toward an exit.
  • Liars put barrier objects between themselves and the person interviewing or conversing with them.
  • Liars alter their vocal tone, often going much lower.

How to Spot a Truth-Teller: What the Truth Looks like

1. Liars: Meyer used a video of Diane Downs — a murderous mother who lied about shooting her kids at close range — and points to the discrepancy between Downs’ cool demeanor and a great tragedy. Even more telling is Downs’ creepy smile after talking about her children’s death — Duping Delight.

2. Truth-tellers: Meyer then contrasts the video of the lying mother with a video of Ellen Runnion — a grieving mother confronting her daughter’s murderer-torturer in court. Runnion showed no false emotion, but only the authentic raw emotion of a mother in agony.

Does this remind you of all the videos of the Sandy Hook parents whose children supposedly were killed by alleged mass murderer Adam Lanza? See:
