Rev. Father Deacon Christopher Herman News DCHN PRESENTATIONS's note, opinion and commentary: 

We thank Deacon Christopher Herman, the son of our former spiritual father, Vladyka Michael Peter Herman of reposed memory for providing us the articles and their various links.

We believe that what is presented is a step in the right direction to bring our Orthodox Faith alive to all and a means to cure some of the ills that separate our Roman faithful from the root, ground and base of all things Christian: being Orthodox Catholic Christianity that began in the A.D. 800's and culminated in the official schism of the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church from Orthodoxy in 1054 A.D. 

By presenting these articles and informational pages and subsequent, hoped for, weekly presentations, this endeavor will reach a wider audience and provide a means for dialogue.  For it is in and through the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ, our Savior, that love, compassion and understanding may come about.  In saying this truth, it also means that we make another attempt to fulfill the ideal of why we are called "Christian" ...

Orthodoxy is not a religion.  It is CHRISTIANITY itself! To a true Christian, the events taking place through out the world and locally in the USA today is important because of how it may (and in some instances has) affected our religious rights and freedoms here in the U.S.A and in some other Western World Countries already.

Initially we had begun by "Subject" but found that by "DATE" is a better format.  Thus, the former entitled "Concerning" below are a form of archival resources while the remainder is by dating. 

As Thou, Father, art in me and I in Thee; that they also may be one in Us. (John 17:21)

"The fundamental problem is this: bureaucrats designed the present system and then sold it to Europe's politicians two decades ago. The politicians worked in the 1990s to cobble together a new monetary system, which voters generally opposed. They could not get enough votes to put all of the national legislatures into one taxing and spending system. The voters would not have allowed it. So, they created a jerry-rigged system: a unified central bank but national legislatures that could run deficits.

There were rules against running deficits above 3% of Gross Domestic Product. There is no way to enforce such rules.

The result is what we now see, and which was predicted by critics in the mid-1990s. The present-oriented nations in the south of Europe, plus Ireland, ran up huge debts, while the bankers in the north bought the IOUs. Bankers pretended that the temporal perspective of the North – future-oriented – also governed the time perspective of the South: "Let's party! It's sunshine forever around here.""

"The Morgans were strongly opposed to Bryanism, which was not only Populist and inflationist, but also anti–Wall Street bank; the Bryanites, much like Populists of the present day, preferred congressional, greenback inflationism to the more subtle, and more privileged, big-bank-controlled variety. The Morgans, in contrast, favored a gold standard. But, once gold was secured by the McKinley victory of 1896, they wanted to press on to use the gold standard as a hard-money camouflage behind which they could change the system into one less nakedly inflationist than populism but far more effectively controlled by the big-banker elites. In the long run, a controlled Morgan-Rockefeller gold standard was far more pernicious to the cause of genuine hard money than a candid free-silver or greenback Bryanism.

As soon as McKinley was safely elected, the Morgan-Rockefeller forces began to organize a "reform" movement to cure the "inelasticity" of money in the existing gold standard and to move slowly toward the establishment of a central bank. To do so, they decided to use the techniques they had successfully employed in establishing a pro-gold standard movement during 1895 and 1896. The crucial point was to avoid the public suspicion of Wall Street and banker control by acquiring the patina of a broad-based grassroots movement. To do so, the movement was deliberately focused in the Middle West, the heartland of America, and organizations developed that included not only bankers, but also businessmen, economists, and other academics, who supplied respectability, persuasiveness, and technical expertise to the reform cause."

"For years, American and British intelligence agencies hunted Abdel Hakim Belhaj, the commander of the Libyan rebels' Tripoli brigade, believing him to be a terrorist and ally of then al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden. They also reportedly had him abducted, which led to his being tortured with syringes and ice-cold water. Now though, the West and many in Libya are paying close attention, and are listening to his every word.
"In reality, our group had nothing to do with al-Qaida at the time," says Belhaj, a veteran of the war in Afghanistan and the former head of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), which, persecuted by the regime of former Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, took refuge in Afghanistan for years. Belhaj, the battle-hardened Islamist, is now the commander of all rebel troops in the Libyan capital.

His men drive around in their pickups, outfitted with automatic weapons while the civilian heads of the rebellion seek to map out a path for their country's future. Belhaj says that the power lies "in the hands of the Libyan people," and that Libyans can now decide democratically how they wish to live their lives. "We want a secular country," he adds. But many Libyans don't believe a word the Islamist is saying."

"American economists, central bankers and fiscal policy makers have reinterpreted British economist John Maynard Keynes's clever idea that government spending is the best way to counteract a serious economic downturn -- and have turned it into a permanent prescription. In their version of the Keynesian theory, declining growth or tumbling stock prices should prompt central banks to lower interest rates and governments to come to the rescue with economic stimulus programs. US economists call this "kick-starting" the economy.

The only problem is that this method of encouraging growth has not stimulated the US economy in recent years, but in fact has put it on a crash course. From the Asian economic crisis to the Internet and subprime mortgage bubbles, economic stimulus programs by monetary and fiscal policy makers have regularly laid the groundwork for the next crash instead of encouraging sustainable growth. In the last decade, the volume of lending in the United States grew five times as fast as the real economy.

Cheap money created the fertilizer for the excesses of the US financial industry. Low interest rates seduced mortgage providers into talking even the homeless into taking out mortgages. And the same low rates made it easier for investment banks and hedge funds, using increasingly risky loan structures, to transform the once-leisurely insurance and bond markets into casinos.

Now the bubble has burst. This has not, however, prompted the US government to conclude that its prescriptions could have been wrong. On the contrary, now it wants to increase the dose. Obama plans to follow the largely unsuccessful 2008 economic stimulus program with a new program this year. Meanwhile, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke says that he intends to flood the economy with cheap liquidity -- for years, if necessary.

The real problem, though, is a different one. The US economy doesn't lack money. Rather, it lacks products that can compete in the global marketplace. The country has a deep trade deficit, yet the Obama administration is borrowing money at the same rate as near-bankrupt Greece."

"Strangely missing from all the hubbub surrounding the cantaloupe outbreak is any talk whatsoever about what actually caused the outbreak in the first place. Listeria does not just appear on produce, after all -- it is typically introduced by outside sources like factory animal feedlots, whose manure cesspools run off and contaminate nearby agriculture fields on a regular basis.

Remember the massive Iowa egg recall from last year? Filthy conditions at the facilities where the eggs had been produced were, of course, responsible for the salmonella outbreak. And yet the FDA tried to use the incident to push for more power over the food supply, including the passage of S. 510, the infamous "food safety" bill..."

"A bear raid is the practice of targeting a stock or other asset for take-down, either for quick profits or for corporate takeover. Today the target is commodities, but tomorrow it could be something else. When Lehman Brothers went bankrupt in September 2008, some analysts thought the investment firm’s condition was no worse than its competitors’. What brought it down was not undercapitalization but a massive bear raid on 9-11 of that year, when its stock price dropped by 41% in a single day."

"We've often pointed out that the whole narrative regarding the BRICs is somewhat phony – a dominant social theme purveyed by the Anglosphere power elite that wants the world to believe faux "capitalism" is effective in reducing poverty and providing people hope. Of course, this doesn't explain why billions live on a dollar a day, even in places where the capitalist "miracle" is supposed to have taken effect.

In fact, these industrial "miracles" have more to do with monetary stimulation than real, long term growth. But we're not supposed to notice that. The mainstream media does its job as best it can, trumpeting the progress of India, Brazil and especially China while avoiding any mention of the fundamental, pernicious and ultimately ruinous monetary stimulation.

Can it be otherwise? If one looks at these economies unsentimentally, the reality becomes clear. The BRICS are entirely dependent on Western style central banking economies and stimulation for their "progress." Both Brazil and China (India, too) have poured money into their economies with the same sort of crazed abandon – and results – as the West. Eventually, the bill will come due, as it already has in the West."

"“The top-secret world the government created in response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, has become so large, so unwieldy and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many people it employs, how many programs exist within it or exactly how many agencies do the same work,” wrote Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Dana Priest and author and military expert William Arkin in a report called “Top Secret America.” Their two-year investigation led them to conclude: “After nine years of unprecedented spending and growth, the result is that the system put in place to keep the United States safe is so massive that its effectiveness is impossible to determine.”

Some 1,271 government organizations and 1,931 private companies work on counterterrorism, homeland security, and intelligence in about 10,000 locations across the United States, they found. Analysts who study documents and conversations obtained by both foreign and domestic spying write 50,000 intelligence reports a year, including many that are routinely ignored. “An estimated 854,000 people, nearly 1.5 times as many people as live in Washington, D.C., hold top-secret security clearances,” the report said. And there appears to be plenty of work for them to do. “Every day, collection systems at the National Security Agency intercept and store 1.7 billion e-mails, phone calls and other types of communication,” Priest and Arkin reported.

When the USA Patriot Act was renewed in May, U.S. Senators Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Mark Udall (D-Colo.) sent a letter to Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James R. Clapper, who oversees 16 spy agencies, including the National Security Agency and the CIA. The Senators inquired about legal safeguards to protect the privacy of the electronic communications of law-abiding Americans. A letter of reply from Kathleen Turner, DNI Director of Legislative Affairs, informed the Senators that it is not “reasonably possible to identify the number of people located in the United States whose communications may have been reviewed.”"
