Rev. Father Deacon Christopher Herman News (DCHN) Presentations:
note, opinion and commentary:
Christopher Herman, the son of our former spiritual father, Vladyka Michael
Peter Herman of reposed memory for providing us the articles and their various
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
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

Is this just a story being planted by
the U.S. government to justify intervention (war) against Iran, or
alternately, as one reader suggested, was this the equivalent in Iran of a
botched attempted at a black ops (wherein the actual Iranian government was

if they ask a fly: "Are there any flowers in this area?" it will say: "I don't
know about flowers, but over there in the heap of rubbish you can find all the
filth you want." And it will go on to list all the unclean things it has been
to. Now, if you ask a honeybee: "Have you seen any unclean things in this
area?" it will reply: "Unclean things? No, I have not seen any; the place here
is full of the most fragrant flowers." And it will go on to name all the
flowers of the garden or the meadow. You see, the fly only knows where the
unclean things are, while the honeybee knows where the beautiful iris or the
As I have come to understand, some people resemble the honeybee and some
resemble the fly. Those who resemble the fly seek to find evil in every
circumstance and are preoccupied with it; they see no good anywhere. But those
who resemble the honeybee only see the good in everything they see. The stupid
person thinks stupidly and takes everything in the wrong way, whereas the

him, maintains a positive and good thought."
"The pop science media today
strenuously market the idea that “science” is threatened by “anti-science.”
But “science” has a restricted meaning in the view of many journalists. It
means, for example, the truth of human-caused global warming, the necessity of
human embryonic stem cell research, and the view that human mind is
indistinguishable from the chimpanzee mind. “Anti-science” means, by contrast,
doubt about human influence on global warming compared with the Sun’s cycles,
confidence that adult stem cells (especially the patient’s own cells) work
well, and doubt that chimpanzees really think like people.
Something is obviously wrong with the pop picture. For one thing, real
sciences don’t work that way. In real science, reasoned doubt is always
legitimate. Even in mathematics. Yes, even in mathematics. Recently a
mathematician offered evidence that the natural numbers were inconsistent. He
turned out to be mistaken, but no one blamed him for wondering. Physics has
been convulsed recently as well, by neutrinos that apparently move faster than
light, which is generally held to be impossible. That may turn out to be a
mistake too, but reporting the data was okay. Because, contrary to the pop
science media, real science happens when evidence matters."
"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."
"The GM soybean and corn varieties
used in the feeding trials "constitute 83% of the commercialized GMOs" that
are currently consumed by billions of people. While the findings may have
serious ramifications for the human population, the authors demonstrate how a
multitude of GMO-related health problems could easily pass undetected through
the superficial and largely incompetent safety assessments that are used
around the world."
"Corn and soy based products
infiltrate the American "norm" for daily general consumption, and the
healthcare industry loves the results. Hundreds of thousands of Americans are
suffering from infections, serious gluten allergy reactions, headaches, dizzy
spells, kidney stones, bowel irregularities, and worst of all, mutagenic cell
production leading to cancer. Monsanto's GMO farm land has increased from just
4 million acres in 1997 to over 330 million acres now, most of which is United
States soil. Brazil and India are now popular GMO breeding grounds also.
Veggie burgers are no exception, so no more of that for your vegetarian
cookouts. Forget about all the soy-based items that are boxed, bagged and
bottled in the center aisles of the grocery store. The only place where you
should be looking for food in the grocery store is around the outer walls,
where the fresh fruits and vegetables are being rinsed. There's no safety in
numbers anymore, and the FDA is grasping for straws, constantly changing the
names of poisons as more and more educated consumers know where the toxins are
and how to read the tricky labels.
Over 93% of all U.S. soy products are Monsanto GMO, which are carcinogenic.
Stop eating the following: vegetable oil, lecithin (an emulsifier), soy
protein concentrates, tofu (soybean curd), soy sauce, teriyaki and tamari
sauce, soy flour, soy nuts, soy nut butter, soy isoflavones, soy milk,
hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP), hydrolyzed soy yeast, soy-based infant
formulas, non-dairy frozen yogurt, and soy isolate fiber (SPF). Soy protein
isolates, containing up to 92 percent protein, possess the most dangerous
amount of "highly refined protein" of all soy products.
Over 86% of all U.S. corn products are Monsanto GMO and are carcinogenic. If
you haven't watched the documentary King Corn, it's a must see. The Bush
Administration subsidized this GMO food devil the infamous high fructose corn
syrup, for ethanol, and also to serve as feed for livestock, which gives
animals digestive infections.
Cows are not evolved enough to digest corn, especially Monsanto GMO cancer
causing corn, and as soon as corn products become their main diet, farmers
must give them antibiotics to fight off digestive infections. That's how the
whole cycle of drugs and meat perpetuates.
Stop eating corn starch, corn chips, baking powder, caramel (made from corn
syrup), confectioner's sugar, corn flour, corn gluten, corn syrup, corn meal,

"Be angry with yourself, brethren, and
sin no more. Be angry at your sins of thoughts and deeds, and sin no more. Be
angry with Satan the father of lies (John 8:44), and no longer do his will. Be
angry at sin in the world and the trampling of God's holy Church by godless
men, but beware that you do not cure sin by sin. Be angry with your friends
when they sin; but be angry with the intention to correct them, and not to
embitter them even more. The anger of a friend toward a friend, and the anger
of parents toward their children - and of God toward men - is not a storm that
uproots the tree but a wind that strengthens the tree, and rids it of rotten
fruit so that the healthy fruit will increase in number and beauty. But let
your anger have measure, so that it may be healing and not poisonous. In order
to have this kind of control, keep God before you in your anger. There is no
stronger containment for anger than God. All anger that is not in the name of
God and God's righteousness is a sin. Do not become angry for the sake of
idleness, but become angry for that at which God is angered. If your will is
firmly set in God's law, you will always know when it is necessary to be
angry, and how much is needed. This cannot be expressed entirely in words, nor
can it even be explained to the uneducated. Anger, in its place, acts as mercy
does in its place."

zealous champion of undiluted Orthodoxy, writing treatises setting forth the
theology of the Uncreated Energies of God and refuting the scholastic
philosophy that was then infecting the Western church. Despite (or because

"As I mentioned earlier, realism is an
important characteristic of Christian non-liturgical art. Also, Christian art
makes use of the "language" of Christianity (symbolism, language, history,
etc.), even if it doesn't deal with overtly "religious" themes. Both
Papadiamandis and Dostoevsky use this language, though neither one could be
accused of writing "religious" literature. In a world where sentimental and
simplistic pop "Christian art" is a market of its own, Papadiamandis offers
another vision, another way of understanding both art and Christianity that
has the potential to be profoundly redemptive. "
"Jewish rituals in the Torah are
usually presented together with their symbolic meaning. For example,
unleavened bread is eaten on Pesah "for thou earnest forth out of the land of

that your generations may know that I made the children of Israel dwcll in
booths wiien I brought them out of the land of Egypt" (Lev. 23:42-3). It is
peculiarly striking that there is no symbolic explanation accompanying the
prescription for the four species of Sukkot. The Torah simply and succinctly

doors of his courtyard, eats with his wife and children without giving food

"For the past thirty years, David

championing the most cherished liberal values along the way. In some of the
great movies and plays of our time, his characters have explored the ethics of

flaws of the capitalist system.
But in recent years Mamet has had a change of heart. He realized that the so-
called mainstream media outlets he relied on were irredeemably biased,
peddling a hypocritical and deeply flawed worldview. In 2008 he wrote a hugely
controversial op-ed for The Village Voice, "Why I Am No Longer a 'Brain- Dead

"Interim Prime Minister Sharif said,
"What is taking place are not clashes between Muslims and Christians but
attempts to provoke chaos and dissent." But many longtime observers of the
Egyptian scene will wonder just who is out to provoke chaos. The Mubarak

allowing periodic outbreaks of violence in order to "demonstrate" that its
authoritarian rule was all that protected Egypt from chaos. It could tell the
Christian minority (10% of the population) that the regime protected them from
the Islamists; and even tell the Islamists that the regime would keep the
Christians in line. Just a year ago, the Mubarak regime was widely seen as
tacitly encouraging an upsurge in Muslim-Christian tensions. And while the
Tahrir Square rebellion prompted the military to orchestrate Mubarak's ouster,
the essence of his regime -- a system of power rooted in the upper echelon of
the security forces rather than in democratic constitutional sovereignty --
remained very much intact."

"An interesting example of this can be
found in the New Testament, in the book of Acts. There is a story there about
how Paul, who was raised as an observant Jew, is arrested in Palestine for his
Christian preaching and sent aboard ship in the custody of a Roman centurion
for trial in Italy. Off the coast of Crete the ship runs into strong winds and
puts into a little anchorage for shelter. The Greek text continues: “As much
time had been lost, and the voyage was dangerous because the fast had already
gone by, Paul advised them [the crew of the ship], saying, ‘Sirs, I perceive
that the voyage will be with injury and much loss, not only of the cargo and
the ship, but also of our lives.’”
What “fast” that had “already gone by” was the Jewish author of Acts talking
about? It couldn’t have been Tisha B’Av, the fast of mourning for the
destruction of the Second Temple, because the Temple was still standing in
Paul’s day. In theory, it might have been one of the minor fasts of the Jewish
year, such as the Tenth of Tevet, which commemorates the beginning of the
siege laid by the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar to the First Temple, or
Ta’anit Esther, which takes place on the day before Purim. Yet the next verse
of Acts leaves no room for doubt that it must have been Yom Kippur: “But the
centurion paid more attention to the captain and to the owner of the ship than
to what Paul said. And because the harbor was not suitable to winter in, the
majority advised to put to sea from there, on the chance that somehow they
could reach Phoenix, a harbor of Crete, and winter there.”
The fast in question, we are told, took place as winter was approaching and as
the long, dry, stormless Mediterranean summer, in which ships sailed the sea
with relative safety, was drawing to an end. Although bad storms don’t usually
strike the Eastern Mediterranean until later, the first rains usually fall in
late September or early October — a change in weather marked in Jewish
tradition by a parallel change in the Shemoneh Esreh or “Eighteen
Benedictions,” the silent prayer that is said daily in the morning, afternoon
and evening services. Until the holiday of Sukkot, which comes in
mid-September to mid-October, Jews pray in the Shemoneh Esreh for dew at night
to moisten the parched earth. Starting with the second day of the holiday and
until Passover, however, they pray for wind and rain to bring the winter
precipitation on which the spring harvest in the Land of Israel depends.
“The fast” referred to in the book of Acts must therefore have occurred right
before Sukkot and been the fast of Yom Kippur, which takes place five days
earlier. Ten-day, or even two-day, weather forecasts did not exist in ancient
times, in which storms could be predicted only a short while in advance, and
as far as Paul was concerned, the sea was already dangerous. The ship’s
captain and owner, however, counting on the fact that really bad weather was
still rare at Yom Kippur time, decided to raise sail as soon as the wind
subsided and head for a better port in which to spend the winter. According to
Acts, this was a miscalculation. The ship was hit by a storm and blown off
course all the way to Malta, nearly capsizing on the way before running
aground on shoals.
Although most English translations of the book of Acts stick to the Greek
wording of “the fast,” a few, such my United Bible Societies’ New Testament,
have substituted “Day of Atonement” for it. Whether Paul, whose attitude
toward Jewish observance was highly ambivalent, fasted on that Yom Kippur at
sea we don’t know, but even if he didn’t, it remained for him the fast. So, I
imagine, it is for you, too."

Herman Cain’s plan refers to these proposed tax code changes:

Replace the six brackets of the personal income tax, which range from 10
percent to 35%, with a flat 9%rate.
Institute a 9% national sales tax to fund the federal government (in addition
to state and local sales taxes).
The plan would eliminate the estate tax, payroll taxes and taxes on capital
It would leave these provisions alone:
Deductions for businesses on investments and purchases from other businesses;
Deductions on charitable donations, up to an unspecified amount; and
Deductions for businesses that employ residents living in designated
lower-income “empowerment zones,” as well as income tax deductions for
residents living in those zones.

"By day, he works in the Financial
Risk Dept. of the European Investment Bank in Luxemburg.
No, he is not an Illuminati banker but a mere functionary. But he does not
take his position lightly. For the last ten years, he has been studying the
Illuminati conspiracy and has made contact with insiders. The result is a
novel, "Divina Insidia - The Divine Trap," which explains the Illuminati
conspiracy to the incredulous, and contains new insights and nuggets of
information for old hands.
Most important, Roussel presents the conspiracy in a simple and plausible way,
throwing our collective predicament into frightening relief.
According to Roussel, twelve "oligarchic families" have grown indescribably
wealthy by lending "money" to governments at interest. These are the central
bankers. Most but not all are Illuminati Jews. Their wealth is in the
trillions. Bill Gates and Warren Buffett are paupers in comparison.
It all becomes very clear. These families have been milking us for centuries.
We are quite literally their "cattle" i.e. goyim.
The whole of modern history can be explained by their farm management
practices. Wars are started to increase the debt and cull the herd. The goal
is to cull the herd to 500 million and chip the remnant. These families and
their henchmen own 80% of the world's wealth and do nothing useful yet believe
the impoverished majority are parasites.
Roussel, (left,) explains how compound interest resulted in astronomical
exponential gains year-after-year. All religions have banned lending at
interest to prevent what actually has occurred: this immense wealth and power
has fallen into the hands of Satanists.
The world's major banks are mere proxies for these twelve families who create
the money out of nothing. (The banks get their "money" from them.) Greece is
the target now but eventually the whole world will be squeezed like an lemon
to get this "money" back. ("We will absorb all the wealth of the world," is
how Cecil Rhodes described it to his patron Nathan Rothschild.)
Roussel's narrative revolves around a Rothschild who has a spiritual
revelation and wants to issue a warning. He selects an attractive young Swiss
journalist, Ann Standford, to write a book and deposits a fortune into her
He then takes her on a Cook's Tour of Illuminati landmarks -- the Georgia
Guidestones, a Bilderberg meeting, Bohemian Grove etc. -- explaining some
aspect of the conspiracy in each place.
He describes its origins in paganism and the Kabbalah, which led to the
Illuminist philosophy. But ultimately, it boils down to debt and interest.
"You want to defeat us?" Roussel's Rothschild says."Abolish loans with
interest and don't create any more money. Economic cycles will disappear.
Wealth will no longer be concentrated in the hands of a few "mega creditors"
like me and money will gain value in time. What you bequeath to your children
will have more value than when you first got it."
Meanwhile another Illuminati "superior" has put assassins on their trail.
Roussel's storytelling is workman-like and his wholesome European Christian
sensibility is uplifting.
The ending is quite unexpected and inspired. The book is worth reading for it
"Nowadays, I see so many married
couples jumping into the divorce courts at the first hurdle and it saddens me
beyond measure. If only they could see that marriage, though not necessarily
ever easy, is the greatest gift and an institution that truly makes life worth
living. Even a marriage as imperfect as mine."
Another step of the Jewish state away
from the Jewish faith...

The purpose for presenting this Daily News section:
Daily News is very important to those who are true Orthodox Catholic Christians.
For without knowing or gaining information for understanding about what is
happening in one's local area and around the world, you could find
yourself faced with denied services in the secular area, lack of income, even
(although it sounds far-fetched) ability to worship openly for the time is not
far off when all will have to decide if they wish to follow the Anti-Christ
through the One World Church and One World Government as prophesied by the
Apocalypse, the Book of Revelation of St. John or follow the faith delivered
once and for all which will cause for many to be denied the abilities to survive
under those kind of conditions, causing for one to consider other options.
Many of those who subscribe to, and some who have caused or are the cause for,
these things to happen are involved in or with the Roman Jurisdiction of the
Catholic Church (which is not the seat of all things "Catholic") as well as its
protestant daughters such as the cultic Jehovah's Witnesses, the Pentecostal
Churches, the Church of Latter Day Saints also known as the Mormon Church and
far too many more to list.
Yet, at this web site we do provide some of the reasons about why they are
opined to be the harbingers of that which is prophesied in Holy Scripture for
the bringing about of the End Times which we have already entered. It is
not necessarily their individual members or parishioners that should be blamed
since they are only the "Sheep" and not the Shepherds... So do not think we
castigate individual people of themselves as we castigate those "money changers"
who Jesus Christ chased out of His Father's House as the Bible Describes; for
they exist in these present times too.
Events are already rushing toward
that time in which this is beginning to happen and will become more fully
wide-spread. In these present times all you need to really do is look around
both your local and larger areas as to what is really on-going through.
Things so very little or miniscule that they are barely noticeable except to the
more informed observer may become apparent.
little things are the laws of the land, economics, politics, the degrading and
erosion of those rights and liberties afforded by the Constitution of these
United States of America and many other things such as the manner with which
entertainments have taken over much of the populace, entering into and becoming
a major focus in worship, and more.
We ask you,
if you don't want to believe us... Have you heard, seen or found what is termed
(of the many terms being used) that there are "holding areas" or "camps" or
"Closed/Fenced communities" being built by GOVERNMENT?
North America, especially in the United States of America, we must admit that
what Russia has come out of (a communistic, atheist country) we are entering
into. And one last thing that needs also to be understood... Something
very important to those of you who are "Catholic" in the Roman sense of its
jurisdiction.... And, we believe this also holds true for many who
are "Orthodox" whether "Eastern" or "Western"....
altering the Life and Teachings of
to accommodate the disease of Political
Jurisdiction (Latin Church = Vatican) of the Catholic Church)
breaking of - or failure and refusal to respect and abide by - the ancient
which leaves everything else open to God's gift of creativity... failure &
refusal to abide by and have respect for those who diligently protect one of the
other Pillars of the Church, the
but "Non-Denominational" also includes worshiping Satan's religion of
Islam by praying with them and other
such as 'Pentecostalism,'
any so-called church with "Community
in their nomenclature
and others who by their
false and misleading dogmas and doctrines
are actually against the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ upon whom and for
exacting reason we are called "Christian" in both spirit and truth from which
non-denominational protestant sectarian claimants have departed from as being
skilled spiritual father can help you!
cannot ride two horses or serve two masters for one of them will be harmed by
your thoughts, your very words and your actions which is to blaspheme the Holy
Ghost (Spirit) who will depart from you. And when the Holy Spirit departs,
the great deceiver (unbeknownst to you) will rush in to fill the void under
disguise of being the Holy Spirit! Testing of the Holy Spirit to insure it
is the Holy Spirit does not, for many a Sectarian Protestant and Roman, work
because the Great Deceiver (Satan) is most skilled in worming and snaking his
charms around your mind and heart to feign being the Holy Spirit.
Remember, Satan has the same gifts similar to the Holy Spirit but Satan's gifts
are UN-HOLY and lead all who accept him (unbeknownst to you) to perdition.
