Rev. Father Deacon Christopher Herman News (DCHN) Presentations:
For November 23, 2011
note, opinion and commentary:
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
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

Here we have two spins on the recent terror incident from both the Left
and the Right, with the Left implying that the radicalization was a
result of Islamophobia, and the Right saying that his radicalization was
a result of Islamic religion itself. Now, while I tend to side on the
right-wing interpretation of this, the missing aspect here is any
acknowledgement that the Feds are making the situation worse, as I have
gone to highlight in the past few postings here...

"The Fed has recently
acquired quite a taste for correcting market prices. Remember that the
goal of the first round of debt monetization — euphemistically called
"quantitative easing" — was to free bank balance sheets from the toxic
waste accumulated during the boom and thus prevent banks from unloading
unwanted mortgage securities in the marketplace at distressed prices,
which would not only have burned a considerable hole into their capital
but would also have revealed the lack of true demand for these
securities. This required the printing by the Fed of a brand new $1
trillion — give or take a few hundred billion — and provided a nice
subsidy to the hard-pressed American financial system. The second round
of debt monetization — QE2 — was squarely aimed at manipulating the
prices of Treasury securities. Treasury yields were simply not in line
with what the committee deemed appropriate for the planned recovery and
had thus to be massaged to lower levels. Another $600 billion had to be
printed for this initiative."

"The authors add up debt

"The most recent National
Jewish Population Survey found only 27% of American Jews attending
synagogue even once a month, compared with Gallup polls showing 53% of
Americans in general (and 61% of Republicans) who attend church at least
that regularly. Only 59% of American Jews bother to fast on Yom Kippur,
the holiest day of the year, compared with the more than 95% of
Christians who say they celebrate Christmas.
By every measure, American Jews are less involved with religious
organizations and observance than their Catholic or Protestant
neighbors. As Gallup regularly reports, religious outlook plays a
profound role in shaping political preferences. In 2008, those who
attended religious services every week gave McCain a big advantage of 12
percentage points while those declaring they "never" attended church
(16% of the population) went for Obama by an even more lopsided margin:
67% to 30%.
It shouldn't come as a surprise that the Jewish community, where only a
minority chooses to worship even monthly, mirrors the political
attitudes of the secular community of "no affiliation" far more closely
than it reflects the outlook of any other religious faith. The voting
behavior of American Jews conforms closely to the preferences of the
irreligious and the unaffiliated precisely because so many of them are,
in fact, theologically unaffiliated.
This means that Republican identification as the more viscerally,
consistently pro-Israel party won't attract American Jews as powerfully
as they'll feel repelled by the GOP image as the more outspokenly
religious party — and particularly the political home of enthusiastic
Given their prevailing disconnection from observance or religious
affirmation, many Jews characterize themselves not by what they believe
but what they don't believe: We're not Christians. This is the single
shared religious conviction (or non-conviction) connecting secular
atheists such as Woody Allen and Orthodox believers such as Joe
Lieberman. It's also why "Jews for Jesus" or self-styled "Messianic
Jews" are ultimate outcasts in the Jewish world, recognized by no
mainstream organizations. By embracing Christian doctrine, such groups
defy the very essence of Jewishness for big majorities of American Jews
who maintain no affiliation with religious institutions, but nonetheless
reject claims of Christ's divinity.
This means that the determined courting by presidential contenders of
born-again voters who might decide Iowa plays no better with Jews than
it does with secularists — no matter how fervently those born-again
citizens love Israel and identify with her fight for survival."
"The occupiers want to

Half the protesters are aged 20–29, highly educated, in hock up to their

Forget peace on earth: these folks want to be Masters of the Universe.
And they don't understand why their freshly minted diplomas haven't made
that possible. However, the money, power, and lifestyle only percolates
to a few; and when the asset bubbles pop, the party is over, and the
falls from grace severe."
"In his New York Times
piece "Our Unpaid, Extra Shadow Work" Craig Lambert says the term
"shadow work" was coined 30 years ago by Austrian philosopher and social
critic Ivan Illich, in his 1981 book of that title. Illich believed any
work we do that we aren't directly compensated for is shadow work.
Mr. Lambert points out that in order to work for a living we all take on
various unpaid tasks. Driving to a job means we have to not only operate
the car but fuel it, obtain insurance, have it maintained periodically,
and so on. Even if we don't change the oil, we accept the management
role to see that it's done.
The digital world has generated hours of shadow work. Travel agents are
going the way of the Dodo bird while we log in and book our own plane
flights, rental cars, and hotel reservations. Once we get to the
airport, we deal with self-serve kiosks until it's time to cross the TSA
border where a human hand is provided but unwanted.
Few executives dictate letters anymore; it's much more efficient for
them to type their own letters, and cost of staff is high.
"The conventional wisdom is that America has become a 'service
economy,'" writes Lambert, "but actually, in many sectors, 'service' is
disappearing." The deputy editor of Harvard Magazine lays the blame for
passing on these chores to corporations. "Technology enables this
sleight of hand, which lets gas stations cut their payrolls, having
co-opted their patrons into doing these jobs without pay."
He goes on to contend that Wal-Mart and Target don't fully staff their
stores so that customers will wander around the store more and buy
things they hadn't intended to."
Shadow work is any work we do that
we aren't directly compensated for. What its critics miss is
"One common protectionist
charge is that it is "unfair" for an American firm to compete with, say,
a Taiwanese firm which needs to pay only one-half the wages of the
American competitor. The US government is called upon to step in and
"equalize" the wage rates by imposing an equivalent tariff upon the
Taiwanese. But does this mean that consumers can never patronize
low-cost firms because it is "unfair" for them to have lower costs than
inefficient competitors? This is the same argument that would be used by
a New York firm trying to cripple its North Carolina competitor.
What the protectionists don't bother to explain is why US wage rates are
so much higher than Taiwan. They are not imposed by Providence. Wage
rates are high in the United States because American employers have bid
these rates up. Like all other prices on the market, wage rates are
determined by supply and demand, and the increased demand by US
employers has bid wages up. What determines this demand? The "marginal
productivity" of labor.
The demand for any factor of production, including labor, is constituted
by the productivity of that factor, the amount of revenue that the
worker, or the pound of cement or acre of land, is expected to bring to
the brim. The more productive the factory, the greater the demand by
employers, and the higher its price or wage rate. American labor is more
costly than Taiwanese because it is far more productive. What makes it
productive? To some extent, the comparative qualities of labor, skill,
and education. But most of the difference is not due to the personal
qualities of the laborers themselves, but to the fact that the American
laborer, on the whole, is equipped with more and better capital
equipment than his Taiwanese counterparts. The more and better the
capital investment per worker, the greater the worker's productivity,
and therefore the higher the wage rate.
In short, if the American wage rate is twice that of the Taiwanese, it
is because the American laborer is more heavily capitalized, is equipped
with more and better tools, and is therefore, on the average, twice as
productive. In a sense, I suppose, it is not "fair" for the American
worker to make more than the Taiwanese, not because of his personal
qualities, but because savers and investors have supplied him with more
tools. But a wage rate is determined not just by personal quality but
also by relative scarcity, and in the United States the worker is far
scarcer compared to capital than he is in Taiwan.
Putting it another way, the fact that American wage rates are on the
average twice that of the Taiwanese, does not make the cost of labor in
the United States twice that of Taiwan. Because US labor is twice as
productive, this means that the double wage rate in the United States is
offset by the double productivity, so that the cost of labor per unit
product in the United States and Taiwan tends, on the average, to be the
same. One of the major protectionist fallacies is to confuse the price
of labor (wage rates) with its cost, which also depends on its relative
Thus, the problem faced by American employers is not really with the
"cheap labor" in Taiwan, because "expensive labor" in the United States
is precisely the result of the bidding for scarce labor by US employers.
The problem faced by less efficient US textile or auto firms is not so
much cheap labor in Taiwan or Japan but the fact that other US
industries are efficient enough to afford it, because they bid wages
that high in the first place."
“The U.S. approach to the
LRA raises a number of issues for policymakers, some of which could have
implications far beyond central Africa,” the CRS report said. “A key
question, for some, is whether the response is commensurate with the
level of threat the LRA poses to U.S. interests, and whether the
deployment of U.S. military personnel could lead to unintended
consequences. More broadly, decisions on this issue could potentially be
viewed as a precedent for U.S. responses to similar situations in the

"Not only did Abbas reveal
a couple of years ago, in an Arabic interview, that his family had not
been forcefully expelled and that his father was affluent enough to
provide for them for a year after their flight (so no canvas tent), but
none of the 170,000- 180,000 Palestinian Arabs fleeing urban centers, in
the five-and-a-half months from the passing of the UN resolution to
Israel's proclamation on May 14, 1948, were expelled by the Jews."
"Despite claims of

"Islamist Watch offers
brief rebuttals to three important and well-worn obfuscations:
Claim: Islamic extremism is no more worthy of attention than other types
of extremism. Islamist groups, the ACLU, congressmen, and pundits have
pushed the meme, with many pointing to the Triangle Center on Terrorism
and Homeland Security's recent analysis of 2010 data. It finds "more
than 20 terrorist plots by non-Muslims in the United States in 2010,"
compared to 20 Muslim-American terror suspects. Yet the report actually
bolsters King's thesis that radical Islam requires special scrutiny.
With Muslims comprising around one percent of the population, roughly
equal numbers of Muslims and non-Muslims engaging in terrorism would
mean that the problem is a hundred times more prevalent among U.S.
Muslims. Hence, terrorism can be curtailed most efficiently by focusing
on Muslim radicalization, just as King posits.
Claim: Radical beliefs are rare in the U.S. Muslim population. A 2007
Pew poll has been cited as proof that American Muslims exhibit little
radicalism, but its results are far from reassuring. Five percent of
U.S. Muslims indicated a favorable view of al-Qaeda; another 27% did not
know or refused to answer. Eight percent stated that suicide bombings
can be justified at least "sometimes." Even the one percent who said
that such jihadist attacks "often" are justified amounts to tens of
thousands of radicals presenting a grave challenge to homeland security.
King is right for investigating where they pick up these ideas.
Claim: Muslims help thwart terrorist plots. The Triangle Center study
and a second by MPAC, which state that Muslims have helped disrupt a
third of post-9/11 terror plots involving their community, are being
used to counter King's assertion that Muslims give insufficient aid to
law enforcement. Yes, Muslims have played a role in derailing some
plots, but this has happened despite efforts of prominent Muslim groups.
Consider CAIR. In recent years, it threatened to suspend contact with
the FBI over informants, was protested by Minneapolis Muslims who
accused it of hampering investigations of jihad recruitment, claimed
entrapment of terror suspects, and was shamed when its San Francisco
branch employed a "Don't Talk to the FBI" poster. The real issue is how
much more assistance Muslims would provide if not for the obstructionism
of CAIR and others."
"On Sunday night, after
Spain’s national-election votes have been counted, the last major patch
of red will probably disappear from the European map. For the first time
in modern history every major capital in the continent, from Lisbon to
Helsinki, will be home to a conservative government."
"Zapatero stays on as
caretaker prime minister for another month, however, as parliament must
meet and the king has to consult political parties before a new
government is formed. Parliament does not sit until 13 December."
"Recent years have seen an
explosion of male joblessness and a steep decline in men’s life
prospects that have disrupted the “romantic market” in ways that narrow
a marriage-minded woman’s options: increasingly, her choice is between
deadbeats (whose numbers are rising) and playboys (whose power is
growing). But this strange state of affairs also presents an
opportunity: as the economy evolves, it’s time to embrace new ideas
about romance and family—and to acknowledge the end of “traditional”
marriage as society’s highest ideal."
"Under Abdullah’s father,
King Hussein, the alliance between the monarch and his East Bank
tribesmen was so sacrosanct that Jordan was often called the Bedouin
Kingdom. Perhaps because the tribes seem so secondary to King Abdullah’s
grandiose plans for modernization and economic expansion, he has had
much less time for them. He and his Palestinian-born wife, Rania, have
publicly campaigned against tribal law such as honor killing and
actively forged a new patronage network, rooted in the Westernized urban
high life of their mushrooming capital."
"The way Republicans, in
general—and Senators like Orrin Hatch of Utah, Jim DeMint of South
Carolina, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, in particular—are
carrying on about Solyndra, you’d think that it was not “President
George W. Bush’s administration,” and “the GOP-controlled Congress in
2005,” that cleared Solyndra to participate in this loan-guarantee
program, and, even worse, passed the “legislation creating the loan
"The federal government is
in fact dedicated to preventing competition in one place where it could
come in very handy. This is in the service of delivering first class
mail! No one else is permitted by the government to do this apart from
the United States Postal Service. So when one finds that this service
doesn't quite manage to suit one's postal needs, there isn't a thing to
be done about it apart from hiring a helicopter and paying thousands of
dollars to get some letter delivered. But, oops, even that is
unavailable since if you were to start such a helicopter service, it
would be illegal! The USPS simply forbids anyone else from providing
first class mail service to us, period. No, FedEx or UPS isn't allowed –
they may only serve us with parcel, not first class, deliveries."
"In fact, ask any tenured
economy Ph.D. what inflation is and you will get a stare down, be told
you are a moron, that banks need to print more, more, more and that we
are really roiling indeflation, with some latent mumblings about buying
their economics textbook for the inflationary price of $124.95.
Everywhere, that is except the Fed itself. Because in an extremely
ironic twist, it is none other than the San Francisco Fed, which
operates the "Be Fed chairman for a day" simulation, where you try to
keep both unemployment and inflation within the "price stabeeleetee"
barriers, that reveals the reality of ZIRP. The laughter really begins
when one recreates precisely what the Fed is doing: namely the policy of
Zero Interest Rates, now well in its third year, that things take a turn
for the surreal. We challenge any reader to play the Fed simulation
game, and to do what Bernanke has done: namely lock the Fed Funds rate
at the legal minimum: between 0.00% and 0.25%. In our personal
experience, we were dismissed as Fed Chairman after annual inflation
literally went off the charts and hit 38.36% following 4 years of ZIRP.
And according tothe Fed, inflation would now, 2.5 years into ZIRP,
realistically be running at about 17%. Which incidentally isexactly
where it is, at least for those who have not mutated sufficiently to be
able to metabolize iPads and fly to and from work using their own pair
of wings. Of course, every hyperinflation has a silver lining: US
unemployment will be just 1.5%. Granted everyone will be making
pitchforks and rope, but they would be employed."
Everywhere you look these
days, it seems that ZIRP, or the Fed's Zero Interest Rate Policy,
is the p...
"To understand the
problems relating to this agency it is necessary to view the revolving
door between the agency and large pharmaceutical companies. Managers in
the FDA knows that they can easily retire after 20 years with full
pensions, at which point they can seek employment in the large
multinational pharmaceutical industry as a lobbyist to the FDA.
It is a well-known fact that smaller companies, not only in the
pharmaceutical industry but also in medical instruments and other
related matters, produce the largest number of new procedures and
medicines for public consumption. Large corporations in all venues
dislike competition, especially from small up-starts, and thus induce
the FDA to force financially devastating regimens of testing even for
products that are benign in human interaction. To gain understanding of
this, be advised that the average cost for FDA approval of a drug or
instrument is about $14 million.
For example, a company produces a benign test for breast cancer that is
consumer friendly and locates any developing tumor, can be used by any
woman and is superficial on the exterior of the body. Its cost is
minimal and the test can be sold by any drugstore. It will, however,
greatly reduce the use of X-ray equipment for breast cancer screening
and is thus opposed by large instrument manufacturers as well as the
X-ray service industry and those who manufacture FDA approved X-ray
In the aforementioned case it took the manufacturer of the new
technology two years to get FDA approval. Breast cancer can easily be
cured if it is found early. The delay in obtaining FDA approval that is
totally unnecessary for such technology was responsible for thousands of
"Well, as we have said
before, if Einstein can be wrong, physics is a science, not a revelation
from on high. And which would physicists rather it be?
If physics were run like Darwinism, they would have settled to problem
weeks ago by saying that Einstein really had predicted it. And his
theory really does cover it. And you just shut up or else."
My point here is to show
that there is not a uniform "conspiracy" - sometimes the EU bans things
which they should, while the U.S. insists otherwise...
I wonder, will the Democrats who think the U.S. should emulate the EU
welfare state and the Republicans who think the U.S. should emulate the
lower corporate tax rates of the EU, will they suggest we follow their
lead about body scanners too?

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"....

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.
