Thought crime was not a thing that could be concealed forever. You might dodge successfully for awhile but sooner or later they were bound to get you. George Orwell, 1984
The fact is we are witnessing an all-out drive to impose thought control that seeks to ban the abilitythe rightto think or speak for ones self. Thinking is becoming a crime. (Globally Acceptable Truth and the Crime of Thinking, Tom DeWeese, Address to the 10th Annual Freedom 21 Conference, 10/16/09)
In an article entitled Dems Undermine Free Speech in Hate Crimes Ploy, the Washington Examiner exposes the insidious machinations of House statists in their determination to impose totalitarian hate crime laws upon the American people. Hate crime laws do much more than undermine free speech however, for in that what one says is the result of what first takes place in the mind, hate crime laws are mind-control devices. ( http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2361178/posts)
Hate crime laws are not just alien to Americas traditional Christian-based worldview, but in violent opposition to it. They are part of a program of psycho political terrorism utilized by Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, and the Bolsheviks after they seized control of Orthodox Christian Russia and put into practice long-term plans to abolish on a vast cultural scale every vestige of belief in the Biblical God, family, morality, private property, and other signs of the capitalist petite Bourgeoisie. By way of various sadistically brutal forms of behavior modification, torture, psychotropic drug experimentation, re-education, and psychological terror tactics, Russians were terrorized into submission while Bolsheviks systematically stole their property, confiscated and perverted their children, desecrated and blasphemed churches, crucified thousands of nuns and priests, and in general, committed monstrous crimes against humanity which took the lives of sixty-million men, women, and children. For example:
About 200,000 clergy, many crucified, scalped and otherwise tortured, were killed during the approximately 60 years of communist rule in the former Soviet Union, a Russian commission reported this week. In addition, another 500,000 religious figures were persecuted and 40,000 churches destroyed in the period from 1922 to 1980, the report said. Half the countrys mosques and more than half the synagogues were also destroyedClergymen were crucified on churches holy gates, shot, scalped [and] strangled,said Alexander Yakovlev, head of the Commission for the Rehabilitation of the Victims of Political Repression. The commission prepared the report for Russian President Boris Yeltsin. I was especially shocked by accounts of priests turned into columns of ice in winter, Yakovlev said. It was total cruelty.

Former red-diaper baby David Horowitz observes that it is,
not for nothing that George Orwell had to invent terms like double-think and double-speak to describe the universe totalitarians created.
Though publicly they describe themselves as scientific, forward-thinking, enlightened, and progressive, they are in reality, notes Horowitz,
religious fanatics who regard their opponents as sinners and miscreants and agents of civil darkness when they engage an opponent it is rarely to examine and refute his argument but rather to destroy the bearer of the argument and remove him from the plan of battle. (The Surreal World of the Progressive Left, David Horowitz, FrontPageMagazine.com, 1/25/2008)
Over the course of the twentieth century, progressive religious fanaticsor in Dostoevskys words, devilish Gnostic irreligionistsmurdered anywhere between 100,000,000-200,000,000 sinners and miscreants and agents of civil darkness.
Totalitarian Bolshevism can be understood as an umbrella under which shelters Marxist-socialism, Darwinian scientism, progressivism, positivist materialism, sex-positivism, rationalism, idealism, feminism, atheism, occultism, empiricism, relativism, and nihilism. These cancerous ideological isms emerged mainly out of Enlightenment France and Germany, spawning both Marxist-socialism and Hitlers National Socialism and today, continue to spread and secrete yet more toxic cells: heterosexism, normativism, sexism, and ageism, among others.
Whereas twentieth centurys Big Brother touted himself as positivist, materialist, atheist, and red, todays Big Brother is decidedly green, says Steve Milloy in his book, Green Hell. Yesterdays isms have reshaped themselves into yet another apocalyptic, messianic, utopian- globalism, one that is blatantly spiritual and occult, pantheistic, politically correct, and in exclusive globalist salons, brazenly Luciferian.
Without a doubt, President Obama is a true believer in the green cause. Viewing our current living standards as excessive and immoral, hes determined to downsize our lifestylesfor the good of the planet If the greens succeed, we will see their vision for our future implemented with staggering speed. By the time you finish this book you may well be appalled by that vision, but you may also find yourself in awe of the sheer totality of the greens agenda and their single-minded determination to achieve it. (Green Hell, Steve Milloy, pp. 6-7)
As Fyodor Dostoevsky astutely observed, Progressive religious fanaticism is at bottom, the creature in rebellion against the Creator, His creation, immutable truths, and moral absolutes. Hence it is rebellion against the very idea of normal, says David Horowitz:
the enemy is no longer a ruling class, a hegemonic race or even a dominant gender. Instead it is the sexual order of nature itself. Oppression lies in the very idea of the normal, the order that divides humanity into two sexes. Instead of a classless society as the redemptive future, queer theorists envisage a gender free world. (quote from Are Evangelical Churches Drifting Left? Barbara Sowell, http://faultlineusa.blogspot.com/)
In sum, it is little g godmen, their pride swollen to satanic proportions, usurping the throne of the Creator in order to correct His mistakes.
From Karl Marx, who declared that he would walk triumphantly like a god through the ruins of the old Christian-based order to todays elite insider transnational Progressive green-spiritual globalists, all have or are proclaiming their godhood, like Barbara Marx Hubbard for example:
We are immortal We can create new life forms and new worlds. We are gods! a revelation channeled from her spirit guide Christ to Barbara Marx Hubbard, influential transnational green Progressive, one of the directors of the World Future Society along with Robert McNamara and scholars from Georgetown University, George Washington University, and the University of Maryland. (False Dawn, Lee Penn, pp. 316, 326)
Fueled by satanic pride, Bakuninone of Karl Marxs partners in the First Internationaldescribed the emancipation of man and destruction of the old order in these words:
The Evil One is the satanic revolt against divine authority, revolt in which we see the fecund germ of all human emancipations, the revolution. Socialists recognize each other by the words, In the name of the one to whom a great wrong has been done. Satan (is) the eternal rebel, the first freethinker and the emancipator of worlds (he) emancipates (and) stamps upon his brow the seal of liberty in urging (man) to disobey and eat of the fruit of knowledge. In this revolution we will have to awaken the Devil in the people, to stir up the basest passions. Our mission is to destroy, not to edify. The passion of destruction is a creative passion.
Considered by many to be the 19th centurys greatest apocalyptic prophet, Fyodor Dostoevsky defined the conjoined isms and their ultimate program of the destruction of everything as the politics of apocalypsein other words, the politics of catastrophic death and destruction. This is made clear by Karl Marx in his poem, Human Pride:
With disdain I will throw my gauntlet/ Full in the face of the world/ And see the collapse of this pygmy giant/ Whose fall will not stifle my ardour/ Then will I wander godlike and victorious/ Through the ruins of the world/ And, giving my words an active voice/ I will feel equal to the Creator.
In another piece Marx made his demonically-fueled hatred of the world and his death-wishing toward its people even more clear:
A silent, unavoidable revolution is taking place in society, a revolution that cares as little about the human lives it destroys as an earthquake cares about the houses it ravages. Classes and races that are too weak to dominate the new conditions of existence will be defeated. (Marx and Satan, Richard Wurmbrand, p. 42)
During his commencement address at Harvard in the 1970s, Alexander Solzhenitsyn raised the alarm when he warned that America was already tilting towards evil. Americansspecifically the ruling class and intelligentsia have forgotten God said Solzhenitsyn, and embraced instead, scientistic-socialism .the politics of destruction. America is on the same highway to hell taken previously by the Russians, warned Solzhenitsyn.
Also raising the alarm is Natan Sharansky, a dissident in the former Marxist-socialist Soviet Union. Sharansky describes the Soviet Union as a tyranny where,
there were no dissidents (because) they were simply killed immediately. Under the terrorist-tactics of hate crime laws, speech codes, and other mind-control tactics, everyone became double thinkers. To outside observers notes Sharansky, double thinkers appear as true believers: everybody says the same thing, everybody votes the same way, everybody speaks with passion. But it is an illusion caused by fear of speaking the truth. These people, he noted, live with self-censorship throughout their lives. Since the regime demands loyalty right from childhood, many dont even notice. They just automatically control how they express themselves. But when a fear society disappears or becomes weak, people suddenly start saying what they feel, Sharansky commented, and Its such a big relief.
To determine if a society is fear-based, Sharansky applies what he defines as the town square test. In this test, if you,
can go to the center of town and publicly express your views without being punished, you have a free society even though that society may not be just. However, if you are punished for your views you live in a fear society,said Sharansky. In such societies there are always three types of population: True believers, who accept the ideology dissidents, who take risks to speak publicly; and double thinkers, who have doubts or disagreements about the official ideology but are afraid to express them publicly. In conclusion, Sharansky comments that the level of dissidence is always a function of how tough the regime is. (The Power of Freedom, published in The American Enterprise, Apr/May 2005, pp. 38-39)
Measured by Sharanskys town-square test we can see that America is quickly descending into a fear-based society. As her freedom-producing Christian-based worldview fades while simultaneously replaced by green-progressive totalitarianism, the three types of population described by Sharansky come into focus. In general, Progressive Liberals are the true believers. Rabid zealots, brazen liars, rebels against all authority, they freely destroy, transgress, scoff, demean, blaspheme, demonize, and otherwise psychologically terrorize the large body of fearful double thinkers.
More than fifty years ago, Conservative poet and journalist Anthony Harrigan foresaw the rise of this generations destructive true believers. Observing that a process of decay was being fostered by a modernist orthodoxy fueled by immorality, Harrigan presciently noted that:
Modernists are determined to force acceptance of pornography as medical science, filth as artistic realism, and abnormality as a mere difference of opinion Though the life of the country is basically decent, Americans are in the hands of a cultural ruling class, having led to destruction the humane elements in our civilization, is conducting us to ruin. For what cause? To raise up a revolutionary army of liberal-bred barbarians motivated by a destructive impulse and unchecked by traditional values and restraints. (The Conservative Intellectual Movement of America, George H. Nash, p. 40)
With the cultural ruling class seen as The Ministry of Truth, Orwell describes the diabolical process of decay fostered by them:
There was a whole chain of departments dealing with proletarian literature .Here was produced rubbishy newspapers, containing almost nothing except sport, crime, astrology, sensational five-cent novelettes, and films oozing with sex. The rubbishy entertainment and spurious news was referred to as prolefeed. (1984)
Protecting and fomenting the destruction of America is a vast matrix of interconnected front groups, activist organizations, and phony civil rights defenders such as the ACLU, the most infamous terroristic enforcer of politically correct true belief. (See matrix here: http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/)
All around the outside edges are the dissidents, for example, the Conservative blog-o-sphere, Tea Partiers, Minutemen, political leaders like Jim DeMint and Randy Forbes, and a variety of Conservative organizations and civil rights defenders such as the Alliance Defense Fund.
Supremely immoral, reeking of perversity, a double-speaking transnational green-progressive leviathan is moving with crushing force across our nation, fostering obscenity and blasphemy, instilling fear and confusion into the hearts of Americans and stifling individual liberty while it perverts Americas youth, imposes mind-control and relentlessly destroys the spiritual foundations of Americas traditional Christian-based order. Its devilish tactics come into focus in the following examples:
1. Cultural Marxism: the politics of rebellion, perversity, and nihilism fueled by satanic pride.
2. Multiculturalism: the insidious destruction of Americas traditional culture by way of elevating all other cultures in the name of politically correct tolerance.
3. Political correctness, speech codes, and hate crime laws: a psychic-cage for the soul/mind of traditional-values Americans.
4. Gay rights/gay marriage: rebellion against the idea of normal.
5. Sex education: called sex pol by Marxist-socialists, its purpose is the subversion and perversion of our youth, the awakening of the Devil, as Bakunin said. (Read: The Gay-Straight Alliance and the Quiet Revolution, http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/Articles/The%20Gay%20Straight%20Alliance%20and%20the.html)
6. Social justice: the hammering down of everything good, everything excellent, everything normal, everything true into the perversely foul mud of demonic nothingness.
7. Critical theory: the mindless vomiting out of the acid of destructive criticism upon everything good, true, excellent, normal, and traditional.
8. Redistributive Justice: the evisceration of our standard of living and individual liberties in order to save the planetin other words, death and slavery on behalf of Gaia.
9. Sustainability: Extreme population control and theft of private property to achieve the new communismcommunitarianism.
10. Religious Pluralism: the erasure of Americas founding Christian-based worldview by way of elevating Wicca, animism, Islam, New Age occult spirituality, Buddhism, shamanism, and atheism in the name of politically correct tolerance and diversity.
Death of Freedom
In an article entitled, American Capitalism Gone with a Whimper, author Stanislav Mishin notes that, on and off for the past century, Americans have been stealthily prepared to accept totalitarianism, and with the election of Barack Obama,
It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American descent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the backdrop of a passive, hapless sheeple
The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia, notes Mishin, and a bloody test it was.
Who financed the bloody test? Wall Street, says Mishin.
In his book The Naked Capitalist, W. Cleon Skousen exposes the unholy alliance of bankers and capitalists collectively defined as Wall Street by Mishin. Skousen verifies his findings through the writings of Dr. Carroll Quigley, both a professor of history at the Foreign Service School of Georgetown University and mentor to Bill Clinton. In his opus, Tragedy and Hope, Quigley deliberately reveals one of the worlds best kept secrets: the existence of a gigantic leviathan of political and economic power poised to seize control of the planet.
The gargantuan power complex says Quigley, has beenright from the startcontrolling Marxist-Communist-Socialist groups,
the power that Left-wingers exercised was never their own power or communist power but the power of the international financial coterie. (p. 954, Tragedy and Hope)
Why did Quigley expose the existence of the global financial coterie? Because he says, it is now too late for the little people to turn the tide. He urges them to not fight the noose which is already around their necks, for they will only hang themselves.
On the other hand, those who go along with the immense pressure which is beginning to be felt by all humanity will eventually find themselves in a man-made millennium of peace and prosperity. (The Naked Capitalist, Skousen, pp. 4-6) See funders here: http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/guideDesc.asp?type=funder
Elite transnational progressive Robert Muller, former Assistant Secretary-General of the UN and former Chancellor of the UN University for Peace in Costa Rica speaks of the fate that will befall the politically incorrect:
all those who hold contrary beliefs to politically correct thought favored for the next phase of evolution will disappear. A hellish fate awaits all who resist political and spiritual globalization, ..those who criticize the UN are anti-evolutionary, blind, self-serving people. Their souls will be parked in a special corral of the universe for having been retarding forces, true aberrations in the evolution and ascent of humanity. (False Dawn, Lee Penn, p. 133)
In other words, the chosen ones are evolving into gods and hell awaits all selfish ones who stand in the way! .and you will be like God (Genesis 31-7)
The lessons learned from the Russian experiment says Mishin,
were taken and used properly to prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.
Among the lessons applied by The Ministry of Truth to Americans,
First the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education then, said Mishin, their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of (them) were for the most part little more than Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more than happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the winning side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another.
In conclusion Mishin writes,
The proud American will go down into his slavery without a fight, beating his chest and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker. (American Capitalism Gone with a Whimper, Stanislav Mishin, Pravda.Ru)

Founders quotes: http://www.earstohear.net/Separation/warnings.html
Marx and Satan, Richard Wurmbrand
New Age leader, Barbara Marx Hubbard has stated, “people will either change or die,” for “that is the choice.” According to those who would concur with Hubbard, Christians will need to be more open minded so they too can receive the mark of the Antichrist. If they will not join with the global community and its agenda, they will be killed by the “opened minded” New Agers. She states that, “This act is as horrible as killing a cancer cell. It must be done (or the sake of the future of the whole. So be it; be prepared for the selection process which is now beginning. We, the elders, have been patiently waiting until the very last moment before the quantum transformation, to take action to cut out this corrupted and corrupting element in the body of humanity. It is like watching a cancer grow; something must be done before the whole body is destroyed.... The destructive one fourth must be eliminated from the social body.” from Joe Schimmel, “The Coming Persecution”
Excellent thread post.
Quite mad...and I don’t mean angry.
Fred, I try real hard not to mix God with politics. Jesus just makes it real real tough to kick ass or even try. Having said, Ill throw out a redacted tidbit from Atlas Shrugged, which may be on topic. Not quite Orwell class, but a bit less dated.
“Did you really think we want those laws observed? We want them to be broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against... We’re after power and we mean it... Just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted and you create a nation of law-breakers and then you cash in on guilt.”
The fact is we are witnessing an all-out drive to impose thought control that seeks to ban the abilitythe rightto think or speak for ones self. Thinking is becoming a crime.
Right on cue -— announced today. Interfaith coalition petitioning FCC to go after Rush Limbaugh-—a man who unambiguously perceives and exposes the tyranny he is witnessing.
USCCB Comm. Office Backs Bid to Clamp Down on Conservative Radio Hosts for “Hate Speech”
A petition to the Federal Communications Commissioner (FCC) to investigate popular conservative commentators such as Rush Limbaugh for purported “hate speech” has caused a stir among Catholic circles after it was revealed that the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) communications office is backing the initiative.
One conservative commentator has even cited evidence that the religious coalition behind the petition, of which the USCCB communications office is a part, may be affiliated with the federal government’s recent campaign against conservative media.
“So We Might See,” a group billing itself as a national interfaith coalition against hate speech in media, is calling on supporters to sign a letter to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski urging him to open a notice of inquiry into “hate speech” among the media establishment.
I hate what is happening to our country. Is that a hate crime? Seriously, what is happening to the First Amendment?
This too shall pass.....sometimes ya got to grunt a little harder....buy a gun!
That little puppy, to paraphrase George Orwell, would make some people more equal than others.
And what is this Interfaith Coalition petition’s definition of Hate Speech?
Categories of hate speech:
* False Facts consist of incorrect, exaggerated, or de-contextualized facts.
* Flawed Argumentation is rooted in hidden assumptions, guilt by association, and appeal to fear.
* Divisive Language creates and/or encourages an us vs. them mentality. Hard times often incite blaming others as the source of trouble. Catholics, Jews, and African Americans have been routinely targets as scapegoats for those wishing to further their own agendas.
* Dehumanizing Metaphors evoke messages relating to warfare, heroism, disease, and biblical characters.

“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
a Freeper tag line - quote by George Orwell.
Freeper Personal Responsibility’s response to my comment:
I wish I could take credit for that profound statement but its a quote straight out of 1984. The more I re-read that book, the truer and truer it seems to become.
We are falling into a time where collectivist thought rules (Its better for everyone if....). I think it comes from the writing that students are required to read. When I was in college (20 years ago) I had to read the Commmunist Manifesto for three different classes. Only collectivist, class warfare thought was taught and discussed. It always grated against me.
From the publisher’s blurb in False Dawn by Lee Penn:
The interfaith movement, which began with the 1893 Worlds Parliament of Religions in Chicago, has grown worldwide. Although this movement has been largely unknown to the public, it now provides a spiritual face for globalization, the economic and political forces leading us all from nationalism to One World. The most ambitious organization in todays interfaith movement is the United Religions Initiative (URI), founded by William Swing, the Episcopal Bishop of California.
Investigative reporter Lee Penn, a Catholic ex-Marxist, exhaustively documents the history and beliefs of the URI and its New Age and globalist allies, the vested interests that support these movements, and the direction they appear to be taking. The interfaith movement is no longer merely the province of a coterie of little-heeded religious idealists with grandiose visions.
The URIs proponents have ranged from billionaire George Soros to President George W. Bush, from the far-right Rev. Sun Myung Moon to the liberal Catholic theologian Hans Küng, and from the Dalai Lama to the leaders of government-approved Protestant churches in the Peoples Republic of China.
The interfaith movement, including the URI, is being promoted by globalist and New Age reformers who favor erosion of national sovereignty, marginalization of traditional religions, establishment of global governance, and creation of a new, Earth-based global spirituality in effect, a one-world religion.
In 1966, Hubbard was a founding member of the ‘World Future Society’; she subsequently co-founded the ‘Society For The Universal Human’, and the ‘Foundation For Conscious Evolution’. In the 1970s, Hubbard organized and co-produced twenty-five ‘Syncons’ (’synergistic conferences’), and the multimedia ‘Theater For The Future’. In 1984, Hubbard made political history when her name was placed in nomination for the vice presidency of America.
During the Armageddon-obsessed 1980s (signified by Reagan’s ‘Strategic Defence Initiative’), Hubbard developed and co-chaired US-Soviet citizen summits. She hosted ‘Potentials: Envisioning The New Millennium’, a stunning television series which featured Gene Roddenberry, Timothy Leary, Buckminster Fuller, Toni and John Lilly, Jerry Pournelle, and Ray Bradbury as guests. Space migration, life extension, and macropolitical models are just some of the memes that Hubbard has promoted over more than thirty years of advocacy.
I WANT ONE OF THOSE!

“The most ambitious organization in todays interfaith movement is the United Religions Initiative (URI), founded by William Swing, the Episcopal Bishop of California.”
United Religions Initiative (from URI website)
History: Creating the Initiative
The seed for the URI was planted in 1993 when the United Nations invited William Swing, Episcopal Bishop of California, to host an interfaith service in San Francisco. That night the Bishop found it hard to sleep he told himself, If the nations of the world are working together for peace through the UN, then where are the religions of the world? From this inspiration, a vision took shape to create an organization whereby people of diverse faiths and from all sectors of society would cooperate for peace and justice for all.
From the first global summit in 1996 to the Charter signing in 2000, URI engaged thousands of people from diverse religions, spiritual expressions and indigenous traditions to create the URI Charter. Five global summits and numerous gatherings and consultations took place in different regions of the world. URI used a highly effective methodology for positive change, Appreciative Inquiry, pioneered by Dr. David Cooperrider of Case Western Reserve University and the revolutionary insights for organizing offered by Dee Hock, founder of VISA international.
Global Council Trustees
There are currently 28 Global Council Trustees. The Trustees of theURI are exemplars who manifest the vision and values of the Preamble,Purpose and Principles, and who model leadership and service by theiractions. They have a deep commitment to serve the whole of the URI community.

Another Perspective of United Religions Initiative
While Christians around the world lament the election of a homosexual Bishop at the recent Episcopal General Convention, few realize that this denomination has condoned outright paganism for years.
Majestic Episcopal cathedrals built long ago to honor God have welcomed the world’s pantheon of deities. Occult rituals at New York’s Cathedral of St. John the Divine and San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral have spread the twisted message that the Biblical God is only one among a multitude of equal deities, spirits, forces and ascended masters.
While their respective bishops have turned a blind eye to the pagan intrusion, California’s Bishop William Swing went a step further. In 1996, he founded the United Religions Initiative (URI), a global organization designed to bring all religions together to dialogue and seek common ground. “You can work in terms of the model of the UN,” he explained, “where you have the General Assembly and the Security Council.”
Bishop Swing’s ambitious quest has found favor among others who share his vision for spiritual unity — a oneness designed to replace the old “divisive” Biblical absolutes blamed for war and conflict.
The fact is, those who base their faith on the Bible can’t join Bishop Swing’s converging streams toward planetary oneness. They know only one God, only one sacred Book, and only one Door to eternal life. Since they can accept nothing less, they must reject an all-inclusive global spirituality.
No wonder interfaith leaders like Bishop Swing see such Christians as narrow and intolerant “extremists” who block their vision of unity. Not only do we clash with the URI, we violate UNESCO’s 1994 Declaration on the role of religion in the promotion of a culture of peace, a “soft” international law.
By 1999, Bishop Swing had moved his headquarters to the Presidio, a former U.S. military base overlooking the entrance to the San Francisco Bay.
The Presidio’s other tenants included the Gorbachev Foundation, FEMA and the Thoreau Center for Sustainability — an office complex that would unite a multitude of globalist environmental, spiritual and educational organizations in a common pursuit: to establish a new world order based on universal beliefs and values.
Visiting San Francisco in 1999, I stopped by the Presidio. As I searched for the new URI headquarters, I took note of some of its neighbors. They included:
* Resource Center for the United Nations
* The Institute for Sustainable Development
* Partnerships for Change
* Rudolf Steiner Foundation
* International Forum on Globalization
* Tides Center (had what seemed to be a Buddhist altar in its large reception room)

Hell thinks it has a chance because its boy is in the White House.
I simply encourage it to double down.

Excerpts from UNESCO’s Declaration on the Role of Religion in the Promotion of a Culture of Peace
[The complete document is no longer available to the public]
An update on this declaration: http://unesdoc.unesco.org/images/0011/001107/110793e.pdf
Our communities of faith have a responsibility to encourage conduct imbued with wisdom, compassion, sharing, charity, solidarity, and love; inspiring one and all to choose the path of freedom and responsibility. Religions must be a source of helpful energy.
our religions must not identify themselves with political, economic, or social powers, so as to remain free to work for justice and peace. We should distinguish fanaticism from religious zeal.
We will favor peace by countering the tendencies of individuals and communities to assume or even to teach that they are inherently superior to others
We will promote dialogue and harmony between and within religions respecting the search for truth and wisdom that is outside our religion. We will establish dialogue with all, striving for a sincere fellowship
We commit ourselves to

Any connections with the UU church the family attended on Mercer Island and HI? (IIRC HI church house draft dodgers and members of SDS during Vietnam war)
ALSO, don’t remember which thread it was last night stating that an Odinga was involved in the SDS chaos in NYC near where BO lived.....Fred do you remember last summer me sending you some information on the name changes when the family changed from the Christian faith to Moslum? There were so many O names, you comented on how confusing it was.
Is there a connection with this person, and the Obama family? How involved were they with the SDS?
I remember in the fifties being in Odessa (Ukraine) and Batumi (Georgia) or in the Baltic States, but then the USSR, the constantly shortage of food in the grocery stores during the power of Communism. People were battling to survive starvation while here in the U.S. and Western Europe the shelves were over floating. Our educational system is covering up this travesty and indoctrinating our young people the same way that took place in the USSR, while still living in affluent society not regarding what will happen to their children and grandchildren. AMERICA needs to wake up!!!

MAN SLAIN IN CHASE; CAR TIED TO BRINK’S
Boston Globe - Friday, October 23, 1981
Author: Associated Press
Police shot one man to death and arrested a second (Sekou Odinga, aka Nathaniel Burns) in Queens today in a shootout after their car was identified as one used in a $1.6 million Brink’s holdup linked to the Weather Underground , authorities said.
Andrew Bottari, an investigator with the Queens detective division, said two men in their 20s - both wearing bulletproof vests - were spotted riding in a car linked to the robbery in Nanuet Tuesday. A Brink’s guard and two police officers were killed in that holdup.
A chase ensued today, and a shootout occurred at 34th avenue and 127th street, an industrial area just north of Shea Stadium, Bottari said.
The arrested man had a fake identification, and no identification had been made on the dead man, Bottari said.
A spokesman for the Queens district attorney said a 9-mm weapon was recovered from the car. That type of gun was used in the Brink’s job.
Four people were arrested after the Brinks holdup. Three have been connected with the Weather Underground , including long-time fugitive Katherine Boudin.
Boudin, who had been a fugitive 11 years, and other three suspects were taken into court today on charges filed in connection with the holdup.
Two of the suspects arrested with Boudin are members of the Weather Underground - Judith Clark, 31, of Manhattan and David J.A. Gilbert, 37, of Cambridge, Mass. The fourth suspect, Samuel Brown, 41, has a 23-year record of arrests and convictions for larceny, weapons possession and other offenses but no known prior connection to radical groups.
Police officers armed with rifles and shotguns manned the rooftops of buildings surrounding the courthouse and nearby jail to guard against any possible attempt to free the suspects.
The four were captured in a shootout with police at a roadblock in Nyack, a New York City suburb, after the robbery of $1.6 million in cash from a Brink’s truck at a shopping mall. Two policeman and a security guard were killed in the robbery and subsequent shootout.
Authorities said the money was to be used to fund the group’s terrorist activities.
FBI agents and police in several states were seeking three to five black men and a white woman, believed to be wounded, who shot their way past the roadblock and escaped. The men involved in the shootout today were black, police said.
The search has uncovered an alliance of radical groups, a nest of “ safe houses “ stashed with weapons, some leads to unsolved cases and plans by the militants for attacks on law enforcement officials.
In one such “safe house” in the Bronx, detectives found a Wednesday morning newspaper, suggesting some or all of the escaped suspects had visited the apartment after Tuesday’s shootout.
Investigators are convinced that the long dormant Weather Underground has merged with the violent Black Liberation Army to form the May 19th Coalition - named after the birth date of Ho Chi Minh and Malcolm X.
They believe the new group may have arranged the 1979 prison escape of Black Liberation Army leader Joanne Chesimard, 34, who was serving a life sentence for the murder of a New Jersey state trooper.
In their search for the missing suspects, police and FBI agents, said, they found weapons, disguises, radical literature and diagrams of police stationhouses in raids on five apartments Thursday in the New York City area.
Police also believe the suspects may also be linked to the ambush of a Brinks truck in the Bronx last June that left one guard dead.
The maps, found in an apartment in East Orange, N.J., showed the radical group was planning attacks on the Queens Criminal Court building, which houses the district attorney’s office, and six police precincts in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
In another development, Eva Rosahn, 30, who allegedly owned one of the getaway cars used in the Nyack holdup, was freed on $10,000 bail after an hour-long hearing in state Supreme Court in Queens to determine if the bail money came from the robbery. Rosahn’s mother, Sonya, testified at the hearing, which was held under tight security, that she withdrew the bail money yesterday from her account in a branch of the New York Bank for Savings.
Her daughter’s attorney, Sharon Flood, told Justice Thomas Agresta that she was present when the withdrawal was made.
Rosahn was jailed on charges of rioting stemming from a Kennedy Airport protest against the South African Springboks rugby team, and Queens District Attorney John Santucci won an order to postpone her release until after the bail hearing.
Boudin, on the FBI’s most wanted list for 11 years, has been hiding since 1970 when she fled an explosion of the Weather Underground ‘s bomb factory in a Greenwich Village townhouse. Three people were killed in that blast.
She and her 1-year-old son Chesa recently shared a Manhattan apartment with an investigative reporter who said did not know her true identity.
“America is on the same highway to hell taken previously by the Russians, warned Solzhenitsyn.”
My grandparents fled Russia because of the *highway to hell* they saw happening. Never much talked about it but they did leave with just the clothes on their back and their 2 boys.
To honor them, I will not be quiet. We should never fear the “town square test”. I will fight with whatever means necessary to maintain my family’s freedom. That’s a promise.
Christ-less-ness is going mainstream in American churches today.
This re-defined Christianity movement crosses denominational lines and fits right in with Progressive/marxists atheists and Global "cosmic-consciousness" New Agers like Oprah Winfrey (a former Christian who received further "enlightenment") and Barbara Marx Hubbard (who apparently channels a spirit named "christ" from whom she receives mad profundities to bestow upon a congregational fan-base breathless with anticipation to hear the newest oracular pronouncement).
LEVIATHAN #10: Religious Pluralism: the erasure of Americas founding Christian-based worldview --- even within the Christian Church.
. I just posted this on a thread but it serves here to illustrate how the Christian church is being destroyed from within---
"Christopher Hitchens says, "If the story of Jesus Christ isn't literally true, then Christianity is a fraud.""
Freeper Woweeitsme: Hitchens is absolutely right. As a matter of fact, Paul says that in Corinthians! Is Christopher reading his Bible again? /s
He must be! Pray God opens up his eyes:
I Cor 15
...If Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. 15Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: (snip)
20But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. 21For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. 22For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
23But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming. 24Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. 25For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
26The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
As the Apostle Paul and Christopher Hitchens point out--- Any definition of "Christian" must begin with the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, only-begotten, God in the flesh, crucified and raised for our Eternal life and Salvation from sin through faith in Him and His shed blood.
Words like "blood," "sin," "Cross," "Hell," "saved by the blood of Jesus" are not welcome in many churches today because they have been identified as words that hinder church attendance and church membership. Furthermore, they are an impediment to global religious unity.
But...these same churches are aligning themselves with groups and people like Barbara Marx Hubbard, who said, We are immortal We can create new life forms and new worlds. We are gods! --- a revelation channeled from her spirit guide Christ.
The age of the LEVIATHAN is creating strange bed-fellows, many of whom call themselves "Christian."
I can call myself a duck, even though I am a human, but the mere statement does not transform me into a duck.
The United States' Constitution was founded upon and protects the very Christian worldview LEVIATHAN seeks to destroy.
What does LEVIATHAN fear?

Obamas FCC, liberal churches, and the media justice mob
By Michelle Malkin October 28, 2009 04:59 AM
My syndicated column today (reprinted below) probes the FCC/left-wing church alliance to silence conservative critics of illegal immigration through hate speech regulation. Tip of the iceberg.
Jeffrey Lord at the American Spectator first broke the story of how United Church of Christ officials met with kindred spirit/FCC Commissioner Michael Copps earlier this month before launching a nationwide campaign to pressure the FCC to crack down on cable TV and talk radio figures.
The motto of the So We Might See anti-hate speech campaign is: Without media justice, there will be no social justice! The same Marx-loving social justice crowd is behind the media justice mob including George Soross Open Society Institute, Media Democracy Fund, and Media Matters; the Ford Foundation; the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation; etc., etc., etc.
Their goal: government redistribution of media wealth. As The Media Justice Fund put it: The movement is grounded in the belief that social and economic justice will not be realized without the equitable redistribution and control of media and communication technologies. And theres that phrase transformative change again:
* Media change of all kinds must expose and directly confront the mechanics of structural racism and systemic oppression.
* Leaders from historically marginalized communities must be developed as effective media activists and strategic movement communicators.
* Media policy advocacy and strategic communications are more effective when clearly relevant to the primary justice issues of the movement for racial justice, economic and gender equity, and youth rights.
* Compelling communications and media activism campaigns must be both rooted in critical issues and coordinated across issue, sector, and region for national impact.
* When justice sectors strengthen communications strategies, center the use of culture as a communications tool, employ winning frames and messages, and strengthen their influence over media rules and rights, the possibilities for transformative change skyrocket.
Transformative change = a media landscape purged of the Rights most powerful voices.
The White House communications shop gives two thumbs up, no doubt.

Together the Strongs run the private Manitou Foundation. A gathering place for religious sects (Hanne is into spiritual interests), it backs, among other things, research into ethnobotany-the interactions between humans and plants.
MANITOU FOUNDATION is part of GAIA worship--the new global religion in service to GLOBALISM. The globalists created a "god" they can control and seek to put all religious organizations in its service, thereby religiously controlling the masses---not to mention the vast number of nonprofit "religious" organizations that can be created.
The marriage of religion, nature, and politics: The "why" behind the new world order
Freedom of choice and basic individual rights are being sacrificed in the interest of the common good, under the United Nations' agenda for the 21st century, called Agenda 21. Under the veil of feel-good terms like "sustainable development" and "social equity", a self-described "new world order" is being systematically implemented around the globe, that is organized around the principle that nature is the most fundamental truth, and which requires all spheres of society to conform to that principle, under the government of a ruling elite (the United Nations and the organizations that support it). When faced with evidence of this unbelievable agenda, the natural question that comes to mind is "Why?"
Two Major Forces
There are really two major engines driving the new world agenda: a quest for control, and fundamental religious belief. What makes this paradigm so dangerous, and effective, is that it merges both forces together under the stated goal of taking care of the environment. The religious background to this environmental agenda is called Gaia, or the worship of the earth. Based on the gaia hypothesis, originally proposed by James Lovelock, this new age religious movement, cosmology, is woven throughout all of the major initiatives, forums, and organizations of the sustainable development agenda.
To begin to understand the reasons behind the agenda for a new world order, it is critical to investigate the religious beliefs of the organizations and individuals behind it, and how those convictions undergird an agenda of control. The new age spiritual movement of Gaia One of most influential NGOs (Non-governmental organizations) allied closely with the U.N. and intimately involved in their creation of agenda is the Temple of Understanding (TOU), located in The Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City. This organization's objectives are, according to its website, "developing an appreciation of religious and cultural diversity, educating for global citizenship and sustainability, expanding public discourse on faith and ecology, and creating just and peaceful communities".
Most importantly, although not explicitly stated by the TOU, the cathedral is the center of cosmology, or the worship of Gaia. The Cathedral of St. John the Divine is not only home to the TOU, but has also previously housed the National Religious Partnership for the Environment, the Lindesfarne Association and the Gaia Institute, which are all proponents of the gaia hypothesis.
Global Forum: Where religion of nature meets the politics of control
The 1988 Global Forum of Spiritual and Parliamentary Leaders for Human Survival began the marriage between religion and environmental objectives on a worldwide scale. From this conference, many additional forums around the world were organized to bring together world leaders in government, environment, religion, and science for the purpose of collaborating around the goals of sustainable development.
The National Religious Partnership for the Environment (NRPE), created in 1993, came out of these global meetings. The NRPE developed a plan for "integrating issues of social justice and the environment" which included education and action kits to religious congregations around the world, training programs for religious students and leaders, and a variety of other worldwide actions specifically targeted to ensure that religious groups adopted the goals of this globalist environmental agenda. Worldwide religion, the objectives of sustainable development, and the Gaia movement all became wedded together into a tapestry which could only be woven effectively through broad-scale, worldwide control.
Religion of nature meets politics: Robert Muller
Dr. Robert Muller, former Assistant Secretary General to the U.N. and member of the Board of Advisors to the Temple of Understanding (which founded the Global Forum), gives evidence to the marriage of Gaia with the movement of sustainable development in his paper A Cosmological Vision of the Future from 1989:
*** "Now we're learning that perhaps this planet has not been created for humans, but that humans have been created for the planet...We are living Earth. Each of us is a cell, a perceptive nervous unit of the Earth. The living consciousness of the Earth is beginning to operate through us...
***We have now a world brain which determines what can be dangerous or mortal for the planet: the United Nations and its agencies, and innumberable (sic) groups and networks around the world, are part of the brain. This is our newly discovered meaning...we are a global family living in a global home. We are in the process of becoming a global civilization...
***The third millennium should be a spiritual millennium, a millennium which will see the integration and harmony of humanity with creation, with nature, with the planet, with the cosmos and with eternity."
This key U.N. leader, in charge of creating policy on a worldwide scale, shows how cosmological faith drives an agenda for a global community, in the interest of protecting the god of nature. When the scope of this religious conviction becomes clear, it is easy to understand how it leads to an agenda of globalized control, in order to align the actions of human society toward elevating the goals of taking care of Gaia above all else, including the people who are a part of her.
Muller won the UNESCO Prize 1989 for Peace Education for his World Core Curriculum, an educational initiative to make students into global citizens who take care of the planet. According to Muller's website, robertmuller.org, Muller says, "The entire humanity must be reprogrammed through a right global inducation (Latin ex-ducare, to lead out, in-ducare, to lead into)". Just what is this U.N.-endorsed global education, as created by this proponent of Gaia?
Muller explained the reasons behind his World Core Curriculum in a 1995 speech to the College of Law at the University of Denver: "I've come to the conclusion that the only correct education that I have received in my life was from the United Nations. We should replace the word politics by planetics. We need planetary management, planetary caretakers. We need global sciences. We need a science of a global psychology, a global sociology, a global anthropology. Then I made my proposal for a World Core Curriculum."
The first principle of the curriculum is: Assisting the child in becoming an integrated individual who can deal with personal experience while seeing himself as a part of 'the greater whole.' In other words, promote growth of the group idea, so that group good, group understanding, group interrelations and group goodwill replace all limited, self-centered objectives, leading to group consciousness."
Muller's influential philosophy is the perfect example of how nature-centered spirituality and an agenda of worldwide control go hand in hand with the United Nations and its supporting organizations.
Religion of nature meets politics: Maurice Strong
This religious conviction and political agenda of control is shared by, according to many accounts, the most powerful man in the world. Maurice Strong was Secretary General of the U.N.'s Rio Earth Summit in 1992 (where Agenda 21 was adopted), and former Executive Director of United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). According to Henry Lamb, one of the most researched writers that exists on the issues of globalism, "He, perhaps more than any other single person, is responsible for the development of a global agenda now being implemented throughout the world." [NOTE: from the article by Lamb previously posted]
Strong, a billionaire and a brilliant, phenomenally influential U.N. bureaucrat, is a devotee of earth-bound spirituality aligned with the Gaia movement. To help illuminate the scope of his influence, consider that he has served in a multitude of key international positions, including Director of the World Economic Forum Foundation, Chairman of the Earth Council, Chairman of the Stockholm Environment Institute, Senior Advisor to the President of the World Bank, Chairman of the World Resources Institute, and, most interestingly, Finance Director at the Temple of Understanding.
Strong and his wife, Hanne, created the Manitou Foundation in 1988 "to provide land and financial support to qualified spiritual organizations, earth stewardship programs, and related educational opportunities for youth and adults" according to the Crestone Institute. Their 200,000 acre ranch near Crestone, Colorado, known as Baca Grande, is now a new age spiritual center run by Strong's wife. The modern face of Gaia and the environment: Al Gore
Former Vice President Al Gore is a devotee of Gaia, and the modern face of the environmental movement. Gore has been involved with the Temple of Understanding, including giving a sermon at its annual celebration of St. Francis, a ceremony whose Blessing of the Animals included blessings for an elephant, algae, and a bowl of worms and compost. According to a 1994 publication by the Cathedral at St. John the Divine, at this sermon Gore asserted, "God is not separate from the earth".

Mohawk Nation News: NEW AGE PSYCHOBABBLE BEING SWALLOWED BY A FEW
At Maurice Strongs Manitou retreat in Colorado, treatment includes everything being taken away from the follower to suck out the core of their being. Under the guise of meditation and sensory deprivation, they are confined into a small space to strip their identity. A low protein diet is part of this.

Witness to Revolution: The Story of Anna Louise Strong
I see the name Barbara Marx Hubbard on the list in the last paragraph of your comment. iirc she is connected to an organisation with the father of the Velamour...who was a clerk for Judge Carter...when he had a sudden change of heart.
I didn’t keep the link, too disgusted, that woman is so far out there...she needs medication.
...During the Armageddon-obsessed 1980s (signified by Reagans Strategic Defence Initiative), Hubbard developed and co-chaired US-Soviet citizen summits. She hosted Potentials: Envisioning The New Millennium, a stunning television series which featured Gene Roddenberry, Timothy Leary, Buckminster Fuller, Toni and John Lilly, Jerry Pournelle, and Ray Bradbury as guests. Space migration, life extension, and macropolitical models are just some of the memes that Hubbard has promoted over more than thirty years of advocacy.
In Happy Birthday Planet Earth: The Instant Of Co-Operation (Ocean Tree Books, 1986), Hubbard examined Spaceship Earth as a vast holistic system, exalting our power as co-creators over acquiescence (the Age of Aquarius impulse now grown up). The Revelation: A Message Of Hope For The New Millennium (New World Library, 1995) re-framed the Biblical Book of Revelations cultural script (the foundational mindset of Evangelical Christianity and the Nation of Islam) as a Solar Consciousness reminder of the need to integrate scientific and technological advances with humanism, spirituality, and stewardship. Conscious Evolution: Awakening The Power Of Our Social Potential (New World Library, 1998) was a truly provocative and sweeping millennium manifesto...
OMG...Timothy Leary? Nation of Islam?

In these K-12 socialist-entitlement, single-payer, and godless temples of government worship the children **WILL** learn to think and reason godlessly. They must just to cooperate in the godless classroom. How could it be otherwise?
Yet....Even here on Free Republic there are DELUDED and FOOLISH so-called “conservatives” who insist that their child's socialist-entitlement and godless temple is “different, or if they run for the Education People's Collective ( misnamed “school board”) that these godless, socialist-entitlement, and single payer temples of government worship can be reformed.
