Next Step, Transhumanism

Last year, Rachel Dolezal was elected president of the Spokane, Washington chapter of the NAACP. However, last week she resigned that prestigious position because she was caught in a lie.

She lied about her racial heritage. There is absolutely no African-American ancestry in her family tree, yet she has been parading as an African-American for years. She claims to identify closer to that ethnicity more than her actual Czech-German blood line.

But, race in itself is not the bigger story. I’m looking at this in a totally different way than most people.

Consider another recent story that has been making headlines and magazine covers. I’m referring to the former Bruce Jenner. According to him, throughout his life, he felt there was a woman inside that desperately wanted out. As he grew older, medical advances and social attitudes had progressed to a point where he felt it was time to release the woman trapped inside. Bruce is no more. Caitlyn lives.

And then there are those who desparately desire to change, but will never be able to. Society is not ready for them, but neither is science. No, I am not talking about race or gender. No this goes even deeper. I’m talking about species.

Gary Matthews, of Pittsburgh lives much of his life as a dog. He first got this idea when he was a kid of seven years old and saw the Disney Movie, the Shaggy DA. At that age, his parents just assumed it was a child’s wild imagination when he barked and dug holes in the backyard with his bare hands. But when he continued these behaviors as a teen and then as an adult, his parents would scold him and forbid his dog bahaviors.

So he stopped—in front of them. But it went underground until his parents died.

Now as a 50-year old man, he lives much of his life as a dog named Boomer. He wears a shaggy dog costume, eats dog food from a bowl on the floor, chews on dog treats, and even sleeps in a doghouse he built himself. Not surprisingly, he is a member of a Pittsburgh Furry group.

In case you are unaware, Furries are people who dress up in animal costumes and socialize together. To many in the furry community it is an obsession as it is for Gary Matthews. Furry role playing was introduced to the public at large in a 2013 music video entitled “What Does The Fox Say

Vastly different as these three stories are, there is a common thread. Some people are willing to give up the person they are to become something totally different, taking the chance of being shunned by society.

Being born one thing (be it race, gender, or even species) is now becoming optional and changeable. With enough cash, creativity, and/or courage, we can transform ourselves into whatever we desire.

But should we? Are their limits? Where will this lead us next?

I believe that the next thing down the line is transhumanism. This involves augmenting humans with technology to enhance our mental and physical abilities.

People who are old enough, might remember the popular TV show “The 6 Million Dollar Man” starring Lee Majors in the title role. In this series, his sight, strength, and running speed was way beyond normal human ability. We didn’t have a name for it then, but that is the definition of transhumanism.

Many people who suffer now, could benefit greatly. Those who have lost limbs could have some of their normal abilities restored.

But, I predict that people with normal abilities will also be taking advantage of these technologies, to become super humans. And these super humans may become the soldiers of our future. Because, as we know, every time a new technology is developed, it eventually ends up on the battlefield.

A Former Believer Defects

I was a child of the sixties. This was a time when TV was broadcast in black and white. It was a time when we trusted our government and respected men like Walter Cronkite, Chet Huntley, and David Brinkley to give us the news each night.

When the president made an important speech, all three TV channels would interrupt regularly scheduled programming and broadcast the speech. The President’s picture would appear above the fold, on page 1 of every newspaper the next morning.

So, in 1961, when President Kennedy said, “I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth,” the nation saw and heard that speech on TV, or read about it the next day in the newspaper.

My Dad has always been a huge fan of the NASA programs, especially the Apollo missions. So it was natural that our entire family was glued to the only TV in the house, when eight years later, regularly scheduled programming was interrupted again for another speech.

But this time it wasn’t a president speaking on the White House lawn. No, this speech was given by an astronaut, standing on the surface of the moon. “One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind”

America had landed on the moon! It was a bittersweet accomplishment. President Kennedy did not live to see his goal come to fruition, but WE, had won the space race!

Or had we?

For decades I have been annoyed by those who said we didn’t really go to the moon. In my opinion these people were nut jobs and wore tin foil hats. I never took them seriously. However, as the  years ticked by I softened my opinion of them and began to listen to their arguments. This year, I’ve considered getting one of those tinfoil hats.

Why, after so many years, am I beginning to doubt that we ever went to the moon? The debunkers analyze the pictures that the astronauts supposedly took on the moon. They discuss things like shadows pointing in different directions as if there were two light sources instead of one (the sun). They also claim that using certain tools they can prove that the hills in the background were much closer than they should have been and were probably a backdrop.

In response to these photography anomalies, I have always countered with agreement that it is possible that these photos were taken on Earth. They could have been taken during practice drills held in the desert. And of course they would have to practice taking photographs. These practice photographs could have been substituted for the real thing in the likely event that the camera or film itself was damaged during the trip. So, it wasn’t the debunkers that finally won me over. I’m a really hard sell.

I recently watched a NASA produced video, narrated by Kelly Smith, a NASA engineer, discussing a future manned mission to Mars, I tuned in to learn about the challenges this mission faced. The moon was not on my mind at all, but what he said was very pertinent to the Apollo missions. And what he revealed, hit me square between the eyes.

According to Kelly, one of the biggest hurdles for a Mars mission, is not associated with Mars at all, but Earth. It’s an aspect of our own planet that is keeping us from taking that trip to Mars. Kelly didn’t say that it would have also prevented us from going to the Moon, but it surely would have. And that was when I realized the trips to the moon were all faked.

You see, there are these inconvenient barriers known as the Van Allen Radiation Belts. Scientists are trying to figure out how they will safely send astronauts through this layer of electromagnetic radiation that surrounds our planet. The amount of lead shielding needed to protect humans and machines would make the rocket too heavy to leave the launch pad

So, how did we do it in the 1960’s? Is the Van Allen Belt a new phenomena? No, its been there all along as far as we know. It was discovered several years before the first Apollo Mission. It get’s its name from James Van Allen, the American physicist who discovered this radiation barrier in 1958, 11 years before we were convinced that our astronauts first stepped on the moon.

Why is the Van Allen Belt such a problem? As, NASA engineer, Kelly Smith states in the video, The level of radiation in the Van Allen Belts are deadly to humans and will cause havoc with the instrumentation on board any spaceship.

NASA is looking for a solution, and will eventually figure it out, but this admission can only mean that no astronaut has ever traveled through the Van Allen Belts, otherwise they would already have a solution to this problem. Or there be no concern, since we have proof that it was not harmful to humans— most of the Apollo astronauts lived long and productive lives. I’m sorry, but if NASA is concerned about the Van Allen Belts it means no manned spaceship went to the moon. And it may be that even the unmanned trips to the moon and Mars never happened either.

This reality hits me to my core, but I now feel confident in saying that no human has ever walked on the moon. Everything was faked and staged. I’m almost ready to say that the unmanned missions were faked, too. We have been spoon fed Hollywood sound stage productions.  All the astronauts that we are to believe flew to the moon couldn’t get there and back without taking two trips through the deadly Van Allen Belts. And yet most of them lived to a ripe old age. Someone is lying and it’s not  Kelly Smith, the NASA scientist in the video that you can watch for yourself, below

This video is seven minutes long and very informative, but you can skip to the 3:00 minute mark to hear just the part about the Van Allen Belts

We should all be angry about this. NASA spent over 100 Billion dollars of taxpayers’ money to fake the Apollo missions alone. It angers and saddens me to have to say that. But there is no other explanation that I can find.

May 2, 2011, My First Thought— FAKE!

Bin Laden died of disease in 2006
— A former CIA Agent

via “Bin Laden died of disease in 2006” – former CIA agent — RT News.

Osama Bin Laden cheated the gallows and died five years before US security forces officially announced he was killed, says a former CIA agent, currently living in Turkey.

“I knew Bin Laden’s Chechen guards very well,” Berkan Yashar, himself an ethnic Chechen, told the Russian TV station, Channel One. “Samy, Ayub and Mahmud were with him right to the end. I remember well this date as there were three sixes in it – June 26, 2006. Those three men, as well as two Muslims from London and two from the US saw Bin Laden dead.He was seriously ill before his death. He faded away to skin and bone. The three Chechens washed his body before burying it.”

Yashar also said that on the eve of May 2, when President Obama announced that Bin Laden had been killed, the Americans found only Bin Laden’s grave near the Afghan-Pakistani border and staged an operation.

According to Yashar, US special forces started hunting Bin Laden’s Chechen guards after Bin Laden’s death was first announced at a conference in Washington in November 2008. The last of them, Samy, was taken by the American special forces a few days before Bin Laden was officially pronounced dead. Berkan Yashar believes Samy could have told them the exact place of burial.

Answering why he had decided to speak to the Russian channel, Berkan Yashar said that after all the recent developments he feared for his life.

Can Fred, The Singing Sailor Keep Putin Away?

In October 2014, Sweden accused Russia of operating a submarine in its territorial waters. However, an investigation by the Sweden military discovered that the object suspected of being a Russian submarine was actually a Swedish vessel.

Yet, the Swedish government still decided to spend nearly $112 million on its defense, due to fears that Russia might increase its military presence in the Baltic Sea.

And now, neighbor Finland is concerned about three cables that were discovered recently on the bottom of the sea in their territorial waters.

Two of these cables were identified as hydrophone cables. These are specifically used to detect submarines. The Finnish Maritime Border Guard says these cables are a mystery. They were not placed there by the Maritime Border Guard.

Finland has not outwardly accused Russia, yet, but behind closed doors they probably suspect they placed the cables. The entire Scandinavian region is on high alert, fearing a Russian threat in the area. In this region of the world, Russia would most likely arrive by sea.

The Finnish Maritime Border Guard investigated another  incident in late April that allegedly involved a mysterious underwater object, believed to be a submarine in the Finland’s territorial waters. Alas, they were not able to determine the origin of the suspicious underwater sounds they detected. The investigation was closed, and the case will not be taken to the prosecutor’s office. However, the military said they cannot rule out the presence of a submarine or other kinds of underwater activity.

All this heighten fear (hype) of a Russian intrusion has precipitated a call to action by a Swedish peace activist organization. In May, members of the Swedish Peace and Arbitration Society (SPAS) used Puten’s opinion of the Gay movement to discourage Russian submarines from arriving on the shores of Sweden. This organization’s motto is “If weapons had functioned as a conflict solving method there would have been peace in the world a long time ago.”

SPAS placed, into Swedish waters, a subsurface sonar beacon they have named “Fred, The Singing Sailor,” Fred is a neon character. He dances and sends out a morse coded message that can be detected by any underwater visitor nearby. The message welcomes one and all to Sweden with the following message:

THIS WAY IF YOU ARE GAY

The idea behind the message is that Russian sailors would make a quick u-turn and avoid Sweden because of Putin’s animosity towards the gay lifestyle.

Take a look at their video. It’s really quite entertaining.

No Alibi for the Rabbi

How many of us have been betrayed by someone we trusted, a betrayal so unexpected that it knocks you off balance. Most people have experienced some sort of betrayal. Common themes include a spouse having an affair or a trusted friend revealing a secret.

But, what if the one you trust, the one that betrays that trust, is a person of authority. It could be a boss, a teacher, a civil servant, a banker, someone you trust because he or she holds a position where trust is intrinsic to the profession. Is this a bigger betrayal? Do you think that this sort of betrayal is more vile, due to the position they hold in the community?

Try to imagine how the victims of a one Rabbi Barry Freundel felt after he betrayed their trust.

The Crime

Rabbi Barry Freundel is a 62-year-old rabbi who, until recently, was associated with Kesher Israel, the prominent Washington Orthodox synagogue he led for some 25 years. He was renowned in the religious community as an authority on Jewish law and ethics. He was also considered an intellectual giant.

And yet, this Rabbi was arrested in October 2014 after police seized two clock radios equipped with hidden cameras, linked to a motion detector. One of these devices was found in his home office and the other one was found in the shower area of a mikvah, a ritual bath used by women who are converting to Judaism and by Jewish women as a way of becoming closer to God.

An affidavit stated that police believe the rabbi had been engaging in the criminal act of voyeurism in several locations, with the use of several devices, over a period of time. Other items removed from his home included, six external hard drives, seven laptop computers, five desktop computers, three cameras, 20 memory cards and 10 flash drives.

Not surprisingly, Freundel pleaded guilty in February to 52 counts of misdemeanor voyeurism.

Besides the betrayal that his victims have experienced, the community as a whole has been betrayed as well. A former member of the Kesher Israel Synagogue voiced his anger, “One of the things which galls me the most and really got to me about the prosecution’s memo was just how much time all of this took. All that time was stolen from Kesher and from the community. There were so many cases of smachot (celebrations) and shivas (funeral wakes) he missed. I have had dozens of people complain to me about that. I used to make some half-hearted excuses, but now that I know what horrible things he was doing with his time, I feel used.”

The Trial

Several dozen recordings of the 152 women who were positively identified fell outside of the criminal statute of limitations. Many women who could have testified against Fruendel, chose not to press charges for reasons of privacy.  In the end, only 52 women took the stand and told their stories—stories of how their lives had changed for the worse.

No charges were pursued for unauthorized and unlawful use of the mikvah, nor in connection with his transport of the illicit recordings across state lines.

A week before the sentencing, prosecutors submitted a 25-page memorandum to Judge Geoffrey M. Alprin. In that memo they requested a prison term of 17 years. This is the equivilent of only four months for each of the 52 counts included in the indictment. 

In the 12-page response, Freundel’s defense attorney asked that his client be spared prison time, stating “He has already been punished, in that he has lost his employment as a rabbi, and is never likely to be so employed again. He has been publicly humiliated and his prior reputation as a Judaic scholar, teacher, and counselor have been destroyed.”

The Punishment

The courtroom was packed on the day of sentencing. The silence was so thick that when the judge began to speak it was a like a knife in the heart.

The former Rabbi stood next to his Defense Attorney as Judge Alprin read the sentence. “Six-and-a-half years in prison and a fine of $13,000.”

Red Shoes

Tavin Terrel Price was a 19-year-old African-American man. He stood just under 5 feet tall and weighed only 100 lbs, so he was often mistaken for someone several years younger. He was developmentally disabled, but he was excited about starting a new job at a warehouse in just a few days.

On Friday, May 29, Tavin and his mother, Jennifer Rivers, were on their way to the beach, but took a quick side trip to a South Los Angeles car wash. Tavin left his mom for a moment to buy some cigarettes. That’s when a man in a black sweat shirt approached him, accused him of being a gang member, and demanded he take off his shoes.

Tavin was wearing red running shoes. The color red is associated with the Bloods, a Los Angeles based street gang made up of primarily African-Americans. Members of that gang wear red clothing, such as shoes and hoodies. Rival gang members, such as the Crips (whose gang color is blue) might target someone wearing red with the assumption that they are a member of the rival gang.

Tavin told the man he was not in a gang and refused to take off his shoes. He then hurried back to his mother and told her about the episode.

As they rushed to get back into the car, the unknown man shot Tavin four times in the back and chest.

Tavin’s mother called 911 as she began chasing after the gunman. Unfortunately, he got away. Authorities are still searching for him.

Surveillance video and witness accounts will hopefully help detectives in this case. They are working on several leads, but so far no arrests have been made. If the gunman is a member of a rival gang, his own gang might take care of him first. Its against gang code to kill anyone, even a rival gang member, in the presence of their family members.

Tevin Price

Tavin Price’s killer believed he was a rival gang member just because he wore red shoes.

Tavin’s mother told reporters, “I wish he would have just shot me instead of my child. That’s cold for a mother to watch somebody just gun down her child in front of her face. That’s a hard, hard thing to deal with, believe me,” Rivers said, “I can’t even sleep at night since my son died.”

On Monday, Tavin would have been celebrating his 20th birthday and the first day on the job he was so looking forward to. Instead, a vigil was held at the car wash where he died. People sang “Happy Birthday” and released balloons in his memory.

Tavin didn’t deserve to be gunned down. He was murdered for his red shoes.

Romans 13 — Jade Helm 15… But, Who’s Keeping Score Anyway?

By now, most people have heard about Jade Helm 15. For those who have been living under a rock for the past few months, here is a short description: Jade Helm 15 is a planned United States military training exercise scheduled to take place in several states in the US from July 15 through September 15, 2015.

There are many people concerned that this drill will be used to desensitize the American public to the presence of military action within our cities—to make it feel normal for a militarized police force to occupy neighborhoods. In some countries, this is normal. But, in the United States, the military has never been used as a police force on our soil.

Why Do People Fear This Drill?

Drills are used by first responders to practice the proper reaction and procedures for something anticipated in the future. What are they anticipating that the first responders need to be the military?

People who have researched some of the more heinous attacks on our country are wary about Jade Helm. Did you know that there have been quite a few drills that have occurred, just by odd chance, very near and at the same time that a real disaster or attack is in full swing? Some theorize that these coincidences are actually planned.

Perfect Examples of Drills Near Disaster Events

  • Military drills were being conducted by the Air Force in the vicinity of the 9-11 attack. This caused confusion on the part of the Air Force pilots. They thought it was part of the drill and so did not react the way they would have otherwise.
  • A bomb detecting/disarming drill was going on during the Boston bombing just a short distance from the actual bombing. Some people think this was meant to keep police away from the spot where the real bomb was planted—another attempt at causing confusion.
  • A drill, eerily similar to the events occurring at Sandy Hook Elementary School, was being conducted just 15 minutes down the road. The scenario at Sandy Hook also looked eerily like a drill, with the arrival of porta-potties before ambulances.
  • There are many other jaw-dropping examples. You can find them easily by Googling “Drill conducted during (fill in the disaster of the day)” 

How Does The Government Use These Events Against Us?

Every time one of these horrific events occurs a little bit more of our freedom is taken away, or at least the effort is made. It isn’t hard to imagine that these events occur for the express purpose to create a new law or remove some of our freedoms and rights.

Just look what happened after the 9-11 attack. Travelers are now patted down in full view of other travelers or exposed to x-rays just to board a commercial airplane with no other reason than because someone else committed a crime. Everyone in line is assumed guilty. Otherwise, why would they pat you down?This is a clear violation of the 4th amendment. No one stops to think about that when they just want to get on the plane.

During the search for the Boston bombing suspects, the people of Boston saw their homes being searched without search warrants. This is another violation of the 4th amendment. The right way to do it would be to knock on doors and ask, “Have you seen any suspicious activity in your neighborhood? Are you right now safe?” This would have been enough to discover someone in distress.

When reacting to this event, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg publicly stated that the constitution needs some updating. He said, “The people who are worried about privacy have a legitimate worry. But, we live in a complex world where you’re going to have to have a level of security greater than you did back in the olden days. Our laws and our interpretation of the Constitution, I think, have to change.”

This is a very dangerous way to think. If you start making changes to the Constitution with a knee jerk reaction to events, it will become a very slippery slope until all our precious freedoms are gone or watered down to a point where they become meaningless.

In reaction to the Sandy Hook shooting law makers tried to further restrict access to guns. The Manchin-Toomey Amendment was drafted. It would have required background checks on private gun sales. This Amendment did not get the votes needed to pass, but it was close.

They Admit Jade Helm Will Be a Drill, So Why Worry?

So, now the question is, what horrific event will take place near and during the Jade Helm exercises? If some horrific event does occur this will expand the mission of the military to include interacting with citizens.

Jade Helm 15 could be that drill that ushers in a new false demon. It could be the cherry on the top for those in the government that have no qualms about stomping on our rights.

When the day comes that we are ordered to leave our homes and take up residence at a FEMA camp, how will they convince us God-fearing, gun-toting Christians to do that?

Don’t be surprised if the Bible is used by the U.S. Government to coerce millions of Christians to comply and willingly march into FEMA camps. According to whistleblower, Pastor Walt Mansfield, there is a plan to use scripture in a twisted way to corral Christians into FEMA camps.

Pastor Mansfield was a pioneer in the formation of the Clergy Response Team (CRT) for FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security. The Pastor explains how Bible scripture, namely Romans 13, has been adapted by the Department of Homeland Security and their Clergy Response Team to convince Christians to leave their homes, to give up their guns, and to be blindly herded like sheep to FEMA camps and who knows what else.

Let me remind you of the contents of ROMANS 13

  1. Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.
  2. He who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment upon themselves.
  3. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he will commend you.
  4. For he is God’s servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God’s servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.
  5. Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience.
  6. This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing.
  7. Give everyone what you owe: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.

Pastor Mansfield goes on to explain that the U.S. Government is twisting the meaning of these verses to fit their agenda. They are taken out of context. They should be read only with an understanding of the Bible as a whole. He resigned from the CRT when he realized what the government was planning. Now he fights against it and warns citizens of the coming storm.
