Occupy Plutarchy, Oligarchy, corrupt News Media and the Fascists' Police

Before there was Occupy Wallstreet, there was Woody Guthrie and his political songs during the days of the Dust Bowl, the great depression of the 1930's. Many within the Occupy Wallstreet Movement (for that is what Occupy is, a political movement) lean left, towards Progressivism, Socialism and perhaps even Communism. Who can blame them, the Democratic left itself has sold out to Corporatism, Oligarchism and Plutarchism?

The Trans Pacific Partnership, Yet another Opportunity to Chop-Shop America
All that's heard in Washington these days is the deficit and the partisan fight over which services to the poorest of Americans must be cut. The true deficit is a trade deficit and its brief (and continuing) history of free-trade agreements is killing us.

What Exactly Is the Neoconservative Movement?
Those only vaguely familiar with the neoconservative movement may wonder isn't this ancient history? Weren't the neoconservatives a part of the Bush administration, and, as such, aren't they now past tense? The answer to both questions is an unequivocal no. Than there those who are clueless and are busy scratching their heads wondering what I am talking about. Is this another one of those conspiracy theories? No.

The Hijacking of Arab Spring, and the Media's Complicity

When almost no media anymore question these barely disguised coups against uncooperative standing governments, we are in very deep trouble. Because if we can't count on the media to tell us what is going on in far-off places, what may we expect of them closer to home? We are witnessing a crisis for journalism that is nothing less than a crisis for democracy itself.

Do We Have a Right to Internet Privacy or an Obligation to Disclosure?

In an ideal world ruled by the just, some monitoring would be acceptable to preserve our nations against those who would do us harm but anytime one gives a corrupt system power to pry into their lives, those entrenched within the bowels of it's offices will always want more and more until all freedoms of privacy become a distant memory and corruption takes the place of representation.

Did the Big Bang need a "Creator" to start the universe?

Our universe could have popped into existence 13.7 billion years ago without any divine help whatsoever, researchers say... "The Big Bang could've occurred as a result of just the laws of physics being there," said astrophysicist Alex Filippenko of the University of California, Berkeley. "With the laws of physics, you can get universes"... The origin of the laws of physics remains a mystery for now, he added, one that we may never be able to solve. "The 'divine spark' was whatever produced the laws of physics," Filippenko said. "And I don't know what produced that divine spark. So let's just leave it at the laws of physics." - I think I have a better idea.

Kucinich lends moral support to postal hunger strike

Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) on Monday helped kick off a hunger strike of postal workers protesting what they say is an effort to privatize and dismantle the cash-strapped United States Postal Service. The strike -- which includes 10 postal workers, union activists and supporters, but not Kucinich himself -- is the latest in a long saga of efforts to reform the postal service as it faces a dim financial future. While lawmakers generally agree that postal reform is necessary, they disagree on the specifics.

Evanston Entrepreneur To Host Event on Sex Trafficking July 1st

I think you would be hard pressed to find someone who thinks that speaking out against human trafficking is offensive. That being said, I think the edgy and unique nature of this project will draw attention, which is what makes it so great. At first glance, it could look questionable but that will draw people in and make them stop. We pride ourselves in pushing the envelope a bit.


Citing the Angola 3 case, TIME says "It's Time To End Solitary Confinement in U.S. Prisons "

This week, the Angola 3 and the broader issue of torture in US prisons was the focus of a Time Magazine essay. Time's Adam Cohen writes: In April, Albert Woodfox and Herman Wallace marked a grim anniversary. The two Louisiana State Prison inmates, both in their 60s, had been held in solitary confinement for 40 years. Amnesty International condemned their punishment as "cruel, inhuman and degrading" and called it a violation of human rights law...Last week's congressional hearing is the biggest step yet in the drive to end or curb solitary confinement. Senator Richard J. Durbin, Democrat of Illinois, said he intends to introduce a bill to reform how solitary confinement is used in federal prisons. The anti-solitary confinement campaign has one more factor working in its favor: the current weak economy. At the hearing, Senator Durbin noted that solitary confinement is extremely expensive..

The truth about the Fast and Furious scandal - Investigation

A Fortune investigation reveals that the ATF never intentionally allowed guns to fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels. How the world came to believe just the opposite is a tale of rivalry, murder, and political bloodlust... Irony abounds when it comes to the Fast and Furious scandal. But the ultimate irony is this: Republicans who support the National Rifle Association and its attempts to weaken gun laws are lambasting ATF agents for not seizing enough weapons--ones that, in this case, prosecutors deemed to be legal.

'Epic' Fire Forces Tens of Thousands to Flee in Colorado

A record-breaking heat wave in Colorado has generated what one local fire chief called a 'firestorm of epic proportions' and forced approximately 32,000 people to flee their homes near the town of Colorado Springs. Fire from the Waldo Canyon wildfire burns as it moved into subdivisions and destroyed homes in Colorado Springs, Colo., June 26, 2012.

Charts: The Supreme Court's Rightward Shift

If the Supreme Court strikes down all or part of the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare, it will undoubtedly cement the Roberts court's reputation as the most conservative in years. That's not an entirely a matter of opinion. Thanks to an amazing trove of data collected by law professors Andrew Martin and Kevin Quinn and the Supreme Court Database, the court's rightward trajectory can be confirmed.

Truth Be Damned: Palin Revives 'Death Panels' Claim
Sarah Palin revived her outrageous claim Tuesday that President Obama's health-care law includes a provision for "death panels." Palin may be a punch line in search of a joke. But she deserves to be taken seriously because she represents the rhetoric of the far right where outrage trumps fact and demagoguery trumps reason, and where, more and more, we get our news from the Comedy Channel and our comedy from Fox News.

Excluding Outsiders or Coming Together for the Common Good: What's the True Meaning of Patriotism?

The GOP's highest-ranking member of Congress said his "number one aim" is to unseat President Obama. For more than three years congressional Republicans have marched in lockstep, determined to do just that. They couldn't care less if they mangle our government in pursuit of their partisan aims. Senate Republicans have used the filibuster more frequently in this Congress than in any congress in history.

No Help from Romney if Supreme Court Scraps the Health Care Law
GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney has said only one thing about the Affordable Care Act. It must go and on day one of his administration if elected he will start the ball rolling to repeal it. The Supreme Court may well save him from this braggadocio, vote pandering boast if the four ultra-conservatives justices joined by the court's swing vote, Anthony Kennedy, get their way.

WPost's "Fact-Check-Gate"

On Sunday, the Washington Post published a column accusing President Obama and his campaign of lying for calling Mitt Romney a "corporate raider" who outsourced jobs. But the writer, Glenn Kessler, now acknowledges that he was aware of new evidence that buttressed the campaign's charge.

US Live Fire off N. Korean Coast Celebrates US War 10 Facts of History Condemn US

"U.S. troops participated in the live-fire training exercise, June 22, three days prior to the 62nd anniversary of the start of Korean War." This is an appropriate occasion to review the horrible truth about Wall Street's key investment program for Korea reaching back to 1905 at a time when the Yankee trader was breaching the monopoly of European Colonial Powers in Asia, butchering in the Philippines and looting Beijing.

Try Thinking for Yourself

It won't be long until we are bombing the crap out of Syria. We might be bombing Iran at the same time. Many Americans think this is a great idea. It doesn't matter that neither nation has attacked us, that isn't a prerequisite for warring against another nation. Maybe we'll see Ahmadinejad getting a machete up his ass like we saw with Gadhafi. That should be good for Obama's percentage points in the polls.

If It's Tuesday . . .

If angry aliens did attack Earth, 21% would call the Hulk in to deal with it, 12% would call Batman, and 8% would call Spider-Man." There is some rational news in this sea of insanity, however, and it's refreshing to read that the religiously insane global-climate-change deniers lost a key battle in their war to rid the world of all non-Biblical scientific research.

The Regulation Monster

The fact that Republican claims of massive regulatory burdens are so out of line with reality should be a cause of ridicule. The media should be pressing them to produce some evidence to back up what they are saying. After all, the public has a right to know whether the people running for or holding office are completely out touch with reality.

Why Media's Health Care Reform Coverage Was Even Worse Than You Thought

The news coverage of the health-care debate provided by the "liberal media" represented a godsend to the Republican Party and the larger conservative movement. Coverage was stacked overwhelmingly in their favor in terms of the volume of GOP talking points stressed. The net results from the skewed coverage? Less than 20 percent of Americans say they have a clear understanding of what's actually in the health-care law.

Did Arizona Senate Candidate Jeff Flake Lobby For Apartheid In South Africa? The Audio Recording Says Yes
Congressman and Arizona Senate candidate testified in support of South Africa's Apartheid government in 1987. Yet...the candidate, Republican Rep. Jeff Flake, who is running for Senate in Arizona, denied this weekend that he had ever supported the Apartheid government in South Africa while a lobbyist for a Namibian uranium mine, but new audio reveals that his denial may not hold water. In 1987, Flake testified before the Utah State Senate in support of a resolution expressing support for the government of South Africa while racial segregation laws were enforced -- largely to support U.S. mining interests in the region. In testimony flagged by a Democratic source, Flake opposed sanctions on the regime, arguing they only worsened the living conditions for black South Africans.'s the audio of his testimony.

Romney's amazing hypocrisy

Recently, we learned two important things about Mitt Romney. First, he would rather see the American economy fail than President Barack Obama win. Second, the extent of his hypocrisy is amazing. While he laments the toll that outsourcing has taken on our workers and economy, he amassed a fortune by investing in companies that outsourced American jobs.

Major US Retirement Fund Divests From Caterpillar

After a long campaign by human rights activists urging divestment from Israel, the US retirement fund TIAA-CREF has removed the Caterpillar corporation from its socially responsible investment fund, a divestment of $72 million from Caterpillar.

News Corp.'s Murdoch Said to Consider Splitting Company

News Corp. (NWS) is considering breaking up the company into two publicly held entities after a phone- hacking scandal at its U.K. newspapers increased pressure to cordon off the publishing business. Murdoch is contemplating the breakup -- a move some investors have sought for years -- after a hacking scandal threatened the company's holdings in satellite-TV company British Sky Broadcasting Group. News Corp. has hired Goldman Sachs Group Inc. for financial advice on the plan.

Student loan rate deal reached, Senate leaders say

Top leaders in the Senate say they have reached a deal on freezing student loan rates for another year, though they are still deciding the mechanics for how the proposal should make its way through the Congress in the final busy days before lawmakers leave Washington for a week-long July 4 holiday. "We're very close to having everything done. But until we get everything done, nothing's done," Reid said.

Prominent Americans urge Ecuador to accept Julian Assange's asylum request

A letter signed by leading US figures in support of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's application for political asylum in Ecuador has been delivered to the country's London embassy. Among those who signed the letter were Michael Moore, Oliver Stone, Noam Chomsky and Danny Glover. Other signatories included the author Naomi Wolf, comedian Bill Maher and Daniel Ellsberg, the former US military analyst turned whistleblower, who leaked the Pentagon Papers in 1971 and has been a long-standing supporter of Assange.

Eugene Robinson: One country, one immigration law

The majority opinion, written by Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, points out something that many who seek to participate in the immigration debate fail to understand: "As a general rule, it is not a crime for a removable alien to remain present in the United States." That's right. It's not a crime for "illegal" immigrants to live and work here without the proper documents. By "here" I mean all 50 states. The United States is one country with one immigration policy, and the Supreme Court means to keep it this way.

How Jan Brewer and Many Others Got the Supreme Court's Immigration Ruling Wrong

The Supreme Court declined to block the "papers, please" provision of the law--which Brewer refers to as its "heart"--that requires local authorities to check the immigration status of anyone they arrest. But the high court did not find the controversial provision constitutional, and so it was not "upheld." It's anyone's guess how the court might ultimately rule on the "papers, please" provision, Justice Anthony Kennedy's opinion gives very specific guidance on how that part of the law should be enforced. That suggests that in the future, the court could very well find the provision unconstitutional--meaning that Brewer's celebration was beyond premature.

China Embraces Ponzi-Bonds
China is preparing to launch a program that will create the same complex debt-instruments that triggered the global financial crisis in 2008. The pilot program will allow banks to convert pools of loans into securities via off-balance sheet securities firms called Special Purpose Vehicles (SPV) or Structured Investment Vehicles (SIV). The process, which is called securitization, helps banks to circumvent capital requirements by hiding debt on off their books, thus, allowing them to increase leverage by many orders of magnitude. Securitization turbo-charges credit expansion while concealing the risks from shareholders, investors and depositors. Chinese authorities claim that securitization will help to kick-start the economy by "freeing up funds for lending at a time when Beijing is seeking ways to bolster growth".

Severe Reactions Higher than Thought in Children with Food Allergies

Young children with allergies to milk and egg experience reactions to these and other foods more often than researchers had expected, a study reports. The study also found that severe and potentially life-threatening reactions in a significant number of these children occur and that some caregivers are hesitant to give such children epinephrine, a medication that reverses the symptoms of such reactions and can save lives.

Even though we don't always give the credit they deserve... We want you, the viewer to know that they are a part of our life and living...

"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.
