Rev. Father Deacon Christopher Herman News (DCHN) Presentations:

For November 15, 2011's note, opinion and commentary: 

We thank Rev. Father 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 Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), the Food Animal Concerns Trust (FACT), and the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) all agree that using penicillin and tetracyclines (antibiotics used to treat humans) in animal feed to bulk animals up and cause them grow faster is an unacceptable threat to public health. But the FDA apparently does not agree, as it claims that implementing any sort of ban will be "too expensive and resource intensive," according to a FACT press release.

The FDA stated in its response to the lawsuit that, rather than forcibly restrict the use of antibiotics, the agency will instead allow drug companies to continue "self-regulating" themselves. In other words, it is just more business as usual at the taxpayer-funded Big Pharma agency that looks out for special interests rather than the interests of the people."

"Fascism is an ideology and ideologies usually don't create inter-generational conspiracies. People create them by USING ideologies. This is why it is far more likely that what we have identified (with many others) as a great, intergenerational banking conspiracy is behind today's growing new world order rather than "Nazis.""

"The whole idea of the EU is to centralize a huge swath of a geographical region that contains numerous cultures and tribes that have traditionally shown antipathy to each other. The elites who created this horror-show have been quite aware that a currency-driven union would collapse. Therefore, the plan was evidently and obviously to use the collapse to further tighten and centralize the union.

But in our view, something has "queered the works" – the Internet and, subsequently, what we have called the Internet Reformation. This has allowed many more people than the elites anticipated to understand the strategy behind the planned obsolescence of the Union.

The move toward global governance has been set back by this understanding – and the subsequent anger – and a campaign has been launched to move the EU toward a greater union. The Economist, positioned as a sophisticated thought magazine is helping to lead the charge."

"Complaints against the army have soared. In the four years to 2006, the National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) received 691 such accusations. In the next four years, following the troops’ deployment, it received 4,803. Officials admit that many cases go unreported. On November 9th, Human Rights Watch (HRW), a lobby, presented evidence of the police and army’s role in 24 extrajudicial killings, 39 disappearances and 170 cases of torture since December 2006—all in just five of Mexico’s 31 states. “Rather than strengthening public security in Mexico, Calderón’s ‘war’ has exacerbated a climate of violence, lawlessness and fear,” it said.

The Inter-American Court of Human Rights has declared Mexico’s military tribunals illegal four times. In July the country’s own Supreme Court ruled in agreement. But the tribunals go on. Mr Zamora says that changing the law is a “high priority”. But Mr Calderón himself has suggested placing only some crimes under civilian jurisdiction, leaving others—including extrajudicial execution—to the army. With the war going badly, the government seems in no hurry to expose soldiers’ wrongdoing."

"We've been writing for months on the possibility that the entire EU crisis is a kind of contrived one and this article post at Der Spiegel Online does nothing to discourage this supposition.

It's likely nothing more than a power elite dominant social theme, that the Euro-crisis is a deadly one and that the EU simply cannot figure out what to do. The meme is simple: Financial leaders with power and common sense must come to the rescue.

Isn't it obvious who the heroes are going to be? Why, the central bankers, of course! These good, gray men with careful phraseology and elliptical sentiments are the hope of mankind. When politicians dither and markets act irrationally these mavens of monetary price-fixing will get the job done.

A central banker is looking to lead the Greek unity government – which is unified with the efficiency of a shotgun marriage – and now Der Spiegel, Germany's leading elite mouthpiece, informs us that consensus is "growing" to have the IMF and ECB "play a greater role." What a coincidence.

And whose consensus is that? We guess Germans are standing on street corners all stolidly agreeing that the IMF and ECB must have their way. Considering that increased ECB involvement (and money printing) is anathema to Germans, we wonder how the top men at Der Spiegel actually know this."

"Consider the contrasts between the old and new immigration. Where the total of immigrants in the "Great Wave" from 1890 to 1920 numbered 15 to 20 million, today there are 40 million here.

In 1924, the United States declared a timeout on all immigration. But for almost half a century since 1965, there has been no timeout. One to 2 million more immigrants, legal and illegal, arrive every year.

Where the old immigrants all came from Europe, the new are overwhelmingly people of color. But America has never had the same success in assimilating peoples of color.

The Indians we fought for centuries live on reservations. And if we did not succeed with a few million Native Americans, what makes us think we will succeed in assimilating 135 million Hispanics who will be here in 2050, scores of millions of Indian ancestry?

We have encountered immense difficulty, including a civil war, to bring black Americans, who have been here longer than any immigrant group, into full participation in our society.

This was a failing that the last two generations have invested immense effort and enormous wealth to correct. But we cannot deny the difficulty of the problem when, 50 years after the civil rights revolution, one yet hears daily the accusation of "racist!" on our TV channels and in our political discourse.

Ought we not first solve the problem of fully integrating people of color, before bringing in tens of millions more?

Another factor is faith. After several generations, Catholics and Jews melded with the Protestant majority. But Muslims come from a civilization that has never accepted Christian equality.

The world's largest religion now, with 1.5 billion believers, Islam is growing in numbers, strength and militancy, even as Muslim fanatics engage in eradicating Christianity from Nigeria to Ethiopia to Sudan to Egypt to Iraq to Pakistan.

Is it wise to bring millions more into our country at such a time?

Will that advance national unity and social peace? Has it done so in the Turkish enclaves of Berlin, the banlieues of Paris, Londonistan or Moscow?

Here, again, are but a few of the differences between the old and new immigration:

Today's numbers are twice as large. Where the old immigration stopped after 30 years, ours never ends.

Where the old immigrants were Europeans, today's are Third World people who have never been fully assimilated by any Western country. Where those arrived from Christian nations, many of today's come from a civilization that battled Christianity for 1,000 years.

Where Western powers ruled the world in 1920, today the West is aging and dying, and much of the world is on fire with anti-white and anti-Western resentment of 500 years of European domination.

In 1920, Western people were nearly one-third of mankind. Today, Western man is down to one-sixth of the world's population, shrinking to one-eighth by 2050, and not a tenth by century's end."

"The current national unemployment rate is 9.0%. But when you focus in on black workers, joblessness jumps to 15.1%. Focus the lens even tighter, on urban areas hit the hardest by the recession, and you find black unemployment has recently attained Great Depression-era levels: 18% in Cleveland, 19% in Charlotte, 25% in Detroit, 22% in Milwaukee. [Black workers lose good jobs to free trade, By William Lucy, Cleveland Plain Dealer, August 13, 2011] Not coincidentally, these cities are also meccas for low-wage immigrant workers.

Had black employment grown at the same rate as Hispanic employment since January 2009, 750,000 more blacks would be working today, and black unemployment would be 10.9% instead of 15.1%. Do the same calculation for whites and you find 6.5 million more of them employed and their unemployment rate 2.8% instead of 8.0%.

An immigration moratorium would help achieve both outcomes.

Obama’s election supposedly ushered in a “post-racial” America. But racial employment patterns under his administration show what can only be called “disparate impact”."

"Pearce is a Mormon as well, but in a substantially Mormon district Lewis stressed his religious identity as a reason to vote for him. In so doing, he exploited the willingness of the Left to suddenly discover and deeply respect religion when it comes to illegal immigration, while holding it irrelevant or offensive when it comes to gay marriage, abortion, or a host of other issues.

Additionally, the Church of Latter Day Saints, much like the Catholic Church and even some evangelicals, seems to be compensating for its Political Incorrectness on homosexualityand abortion by doubling down on mass illegal immigration as a divine commandment."

"The worst offender is Qatar, according to several Tripoli-based diplomats. The small Gulf state was instrumental in arming the rebels. Earlier this year it sent hundreds of weapons shipments and military advisers to Libya and lobbied hard for international intervention. Not surprisingly, the Qataris are revered among Libyans. All over Tripoli, squares and districts have been renamed in their honour. Yet the Qataris are now supporting the political ambitions of hand-picked leaders and commanders, undermining attempts to form a unified military command. Some members of the National Transitional Council are seething. They say even during the war the Qataris bypassed them, sending weapons directly to favoured units at the front. To a lesser extent some Western powers are also pushing their own men or models."

"Why would Israel attack now when, for some of the reasons above, it has previously stayed its hand? There are several possible answers. The first is that Iran is rapidly moving centrifuges to its once-secret site at Fordow, buried deep inside a mountain and possibly invulnerable to attack by conventional weapons. Second, Syria’s internal chaos may take Iran’s most important regional ally out of the game. Third, the departure of American forces from Iraq removes both a focus for Iranian retaliation and a constraint on America. Fourth, if Messrs Netanyahu and Barak reckon that they need America’s military might to complete what they start, there may be no better combination to ensure that than a politically weak president whose Republican opponents have made unquestioning support for Israel a wedge issue a year before a presidential election."

"If all goes to plan, America will take big steps towards this goal at an upcoming summit hosted by the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN) on the Indonesian island of Bali on November 17th-19th.

The ten-member regional grouping will first be holding its own heads-of-state summit on Bali. But their annual shindig will be overshadowed by President Barack Obama’s planned attendance immediately afterwards at the East Asia Summit (EAS), a body to which the United States will formally accede. The EAS was founded six years ago as a diplomatic extension of ASEAN, and includes other countries, such as Australia, China and India, that have interests in the Asia-Pacific. America’s accession will be momentous for everyone, argues Robin Bush, the optimistic head of the Asia Foundation in Jakarta, because it ensures America a permanent place at the forum where the region’s future will be shaped.

American diplomats claim this is reward for Mr Obama’s economic and diplomatic investment in the ASEAN region, America’s fourth-largest overseas market. The United States appointed a special envoy to ASEAN, based in Jakarta, signed the ASEAN Treaty of Amity and Co-operation, and has taken part in the ASEAN Regional Forum, a security talking-shop. America has long had close relations with countries like Thailand, the Philippines and Singapore (which are all treaty allies). But in recent years it has also worked on improving ties with countries that have in the past antagonised it.

It has forged what Mrs Clinton calls a “new partnership” with Indonesia, the giant of South-East Asia and the world’s most populous majority-Muslim country. This has even meant a resumption of training Indonesia’s controversial special forces, accused of past human-rights abuses in East Timor, West Papua and Aceh. The rapprochement with Vietnam has deepened, both economically and politically: in 2010 the USS George Washington was the first American aircraft-carrier to visit the country since the end of the Vietnam war. This year America even appointed a special envoy to Myanmar, a country it had previously shunned.

Meanwhile, ASEAN countries have become increasingly keen for America to come closer, if only as a balance against a rising China. The past couple of years have seen increasing regional tensions, for example in the sea lanes of the South China Sea. Several ASEAN nations dispute ownership of islands with China, and China’s preparedness to assert its claims with aggressive warnings and even a bit of gunboat diplomacy has worried smaller neighbours, notably Vietnam and the Philippines. As well as presumed mineral riches under the sea bed, the sea lanes are a vital route for shipping.

Balancing Chinese ambitions is also partly why ASEAN has been keen to draw other powers, including Japan, Australia, India and Russia, into its summitry. The association is far too polite to speak so frankly. It talks instead of a new policy to maintain a “dynamic equilibrium” in the region, a term coined by the Indonesian foreign minister, Marty Natalegawa. Above all, ASEAN hopes that America will be in a better position to help keep the peace in the South China Sea.

As interests converge between America and ASEAN, ambitions grow. One American think-tank, the Centre for Strategic and International Studies, urges America to move quickly towards negotiating a United States-ASEAN free-trade agreement."

"THE American president is bringing a new—or at least rewarmed—cause to the Asia-Pacific region: free trade. Barack Obama recently signed a ground-breaking free-trade agreement (FTA) with South Korea, after years of Washington foot-dragging. He signed FTAs with Colombia and Panama on the same day. On November 12th-13th the president hosts an Asia-Pacific trade jamboree in Honolulu which, he seems to hope, will give momentum to the idea of a remarkably ambitious free-trade zone at just the time when global trade talks are going nowhere.

Mr Obama’s plans hang on negotiations for a little-known but rather liberal trade grouping, called the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). These will take place on the sidelines of the annual summit of APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation), a gathering long famed for its waffling. Currently, TPP members number only four small economies: Brunei, Chile, New Zealand and Singapore. But over the past year America, Australia, Malaysia, Peru and Vietnam have made progress in talks to join the club.

Were America a member, its trade with its eight fellow TPP members would amount to little more than 5% of all its foreign trade. But some quietly hope that the TPP will serve as a “docking station” for an APEC-wide free-trade area. That would further move the global centre of economic gravity from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific."

"MOST Americans have not heard of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a free-trade area of countries dotted around the Pacific Ocean. They will soon. This weekend it has suddenly emerged as the most promising trade liberalisation initiative since the Doha round of world-trade talks stalled in 2008. On November 11th, Japan, the world’s third-largest economy, announced its intention to join America and eight other countries in negotiating what its advocates hope will emerge as the new gold standard for free trade in the world’s most dynamic economic zone. Reuters reports that if the ten-country deal is concluded, it will cover a market 40% bigger than the European Union. The news has electrified the summit of Asia-Pacific Exporting Countries (APEC) convening in Honolulu this weekend. President Barack Obama, who acts as the meeting’s host, hopes the TPP will be the cornerstone of an APEC-wide free-trade area. With the euro zone in shambles, that would further shift the world’s centre of economic gravity from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific.

There are plenty of reasons for the mood of celebration. After less than three months in office, Yoshihiko Noda, Japan’s prime minister, has made one of his country’s boldest policy decisions in years, which could unleash a chain reaction of reforms in the moribund national economy. His decision may spur other big economies, such as Canada, to make renewed efforts to join the negotiations, which currently include America, Australia, Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam. If America and Japan can pull off such a deal, the TPP could challenge China’s own free-trade push in the region, which revolves around the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN), South Korea and Japan, rather than the Pacific Rim. By joining with America, Japan also hopes to influence global technological standards in industries like electric cars and clean energy, rather than having those heavily swayed by China."

"By 2050, on current trends, the United States will no longer have a white majority. The Latino share of the population will double from 15% to 30%, and the share of African- and Asian-Americans will grow from 19% to 24%, so turning America’s minorities into a proportion of just over half by the middle of the century. Since minorities vote disproportionately Democrat (80% voted for Mr Obama in 2008), that is bad long-term news for the Grand Old Party unless their preferences change.

If you slice the population by age and occupation, the prospects for the Republicans look no better. By the end of the decade 90m voters will be so-called “millennials” (roughly, the generation born between 1978 and 2000), almost four out of ten. In 2008 this cohort supported Mr Obama by 66% to 32%. Mr Obama also scooped up a handsome majority of the votes of unmarried and college-educated women, white college graduates with “professional” careers, and religiously unaffiliated or “secular” voters.

"Italy has fewer foreign debts than the other troubled euro-zone countries, as it ran only modest current-account deficits in the boom years. Its net international debt (what Italy’s businesses, householders and government owe to foreigners, less the foreign assets they own) was 24% of GDP in 2010, not much above that of Britain or America, and well below the position in Greece (96%), Portugal (107%) or Spain (90%). Indeed Italy’s overall private-sector debts are modest by rich-country standards. This matters for the nation’s solvency. If less wealth goes outside Italy to service foreign debts, more is left to tax."

"The supreme irony of our current situation is that it came about in a secular age not because of a lack of faith but because of too much faith in the wrong things. Faith in the market as a self-correcting system. Faith in the securitization of risk, as if you could eliminate uncertainty by paying someone else to carry it on your behalf. Faith in regulatory authorities to rid the world of sin. Faith in the combination of the market and technology to generate ceaseless economic growth.

Someone somewhere should have remembered the lesson of the world’s first economist, Joseph in the book of Genesis, who first taught the theory of trade cycles, that seven years of plenty tend to be followed by seven years of hardship. All economic planning should factor in worst-case scenarios. The Judeo-Christian heritage teaches humility, the greatest defence against the overconfidence for which we are now paying a heavy price."

"Our definition of censorship is the subtle yet constant and sophisticated manipulation of reality in our mass media outlets. Basically, decisions as to what subjects are included in the corporate media (or any other media for that matter), or not included, is media censorship at work. We focus on news censorship; of course, there are other forms of censorship in life that are not our focal point which are also important. But, we state, "... censorship refers to the intentional non-inclusion of a news story – or piece of a news story – based on anything other than a desire to tell the truth." Simply put, censorship takes many insidious guises outside of outright redaction or cutting room floor antics. Censorship uses framing, sleighting of content, attacking, labeling, false balancing and more (as political scientist and former PC judge Dr. Michael Parenti has pointed out in many books).
Certainly, private entities can be and are involved in censorship, evident in that definition. When one compares those news stories that reported by various media outlets and those omitted, there is often glaring inconsistency. If we look at the patterns of these inclusions and omissions it often becomes quite clear that it depends on who owns or significantly financially sponsors these outlets, and what entities influence that decision."

"The world should understand that there is a new Israeli phenomenon: most Israelis have moved to the left when it comes to the peace process and are ready for compromise even if, for tactical reasons, they vote for the right. A majority of Israelis would support a two-state deal if it included a Palestinian state that recognized Israel as what it is, a Jewish state, and the Palestinian right of return was limited to the new Palestine, while the Jewish right of return was limited to Israel proper. They do not believe that Abbas is ready at this point to accept this."

"Consider the following from mortgage analyst Mark Hanson:

On US totals, if you figure average house prices use conforming loan balances, then a repeat buyer has to have roughly 10 percent down to buy in addition to the 6 percent Realtor fee to sell. Thus, the effective negative equity target would be 85%. You also have to factor in secondary financing, which most measures leave out.

Based on that, over 50 percent of all mortgaged households in the US are effectively underwater — unable to sell for enough to pay a Realtor and put a down payment on a new purchase without coming out of pocket. Because repeat buyers have always carried the market as the foundation, this is why demand has not come back. It's as if half the potential buyers in America died over a two-year period of time."

"From David McWilliams' recent book, Follow The Money: The Tale of the Merchant of Ennis, we learn that Lenihan, a lawyer by training, received his first lessons in banking and finance at McWilliams' kitchen table - on the 17th of September 2008.

Before that, McWilliams tells us, Lenihan had learned everything he knew about finance from a biography of Alan Greenspan(!) that he had picked up over the summer. We learn that Lenihan had no idea that Irish banks were in trouble until after the failure of Lehman Brothers just two days before.

Less than two weeks after that late-night cram session at McWilliams' kitchen table, Ireland announced to the world that it would fully guarantee its banks liabilities -- for both depositors and bondholders.

We now know that this hasty decision would lead to national bankruptcy and the specter of sovereign default. But at the time, Lenihan -- not unlike a number of other clueless politicians scattered throughout the formerly industrialized world -- was only following the advice being offered by the "experts" who surrounded him. Shockingly, among those "experts" were none other than a team of advisors from Merrill Lynch."

Low-enriched uranium was considered acceptable as that is the level needed for nuclear reactors, for which Iran claimed it was developing its nuclear power. Now that the enrichment has reached nearly 20 percent, however, some nations are considering this to be proof of an Iranian nuclear threat — even though weapons-grade uranium is around 90 percent."

"Take the postmodern-day institution known as "sexual harassment," and its latest manifestation in the ongoing scandal swirling around GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain. For all of the sound and fury surrounding Cain's "Grope-gate," there's really not much going on here that we haven't witnessed before.

The notion of sexual harassment was first widely broadcast to the public via our cultural commissars way back in the day, when Anita Hill publically accused Clarence Thomas of inappropriately regaling her with hearwarming stories of pubic hair on Coke cans and porn stars named Long Dong Silver. Because Thomas was a conservative Supreme Court judicial candidate, and Hill wished to derail his nomination, the latter naturally became the darling of liberals across the country, who proclaimed their righteousness and solidarity with the oppressed by plastering their cars with "I Believe Anita Hill" bumper stickers.

However, when a certain left-leaning president was accused of much more nefariously lecherous, even violent, deeds by numerous female underlings and acquaintences just a few years later, we found out (surprse, surprise!) that liberals tend to care more about politics than principle. Thus, in the waning years of the nifty nineties, we were treated to the smelly spectacle of the Democrat party and its supporters eschewing all of their Anita Hill-era concerns and avidly whoring themselves out to big-pimpin' daddy Clinton. These same jokers who wanted Thomas's balding head on a platter for allegedly making tasteless jokes to a co-worker now insisted that we give the prez a pass for allegedly feeling up Kathleen Willey, exposing his penis to Paula Jones, and raping Juanita Broaddrick, since to do otherwise would mean letting the odious Newt Gingrich and the evil Republicans have a poltical victory."

"The medical community is in the process of unveiling a "universal" influenza vaccine that it claims will prevent all flu strains with a single jab. The only problem is that, in the process, the system has inadvertently admitted that current flu shots are medically useless because they fail to target the correct flu strain in many cases, and they do not stimulate a natural flu-fighting immune response even when the strain is a match."

"According to FSN, the lack of pollen in most conventional "honey" products is due to these products having been ultra-filtered. This means that they have been intensely heated, forced through extremely tiny filters, and potentially even watered down or adulterated in some way prior to hitting store shelves.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) holds the position that any so-called honey products that have been ultra-filtered are not actually honey. But the agency refuses to do anything to stop this influx of illegitimate "honey" from flooding the North American market. It also continues to stonewall all petitions to establish a national regulatory standard for verifying the integrity of honey."

"Never, never, never let anyone tell you that, in order to be Orthodox, you must also be eastern. The West was Orthodox for a thousand years, and her venerable liturgy is far older than any of her heresies."


- Blessed St. John Maximovitch of Shanghai and San Francisco

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. 

Those 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? 

Here in 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"....

[ * Non-Denominational = Synchrestic Ecumenism, Disease of Scholasticism, altering the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ to accommodate the disease of Political Correctness and CULTIC PROTESTANTISM, and the Roman Jurisdiction (Latin Church = Vatican) of the Catholic Church) breaking of - or failure and refusal to respect and abide by  - the ancient Seven Ecumenical "Do Not" Canons 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 Seals of the Confessional, but "Non-Denominational" also includes worshiping Satan's religion of Muslim, Islam by praying with them and other heretics such as 'Pentecostalism,' 'Jehovah's Witnesses,' 'Mormons,' 'Church of Christ,' any so-called church with "Community Church" 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 so-called Christian] Only a skilled spiritual father can help you!

Remember: 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.
