“Mother” May I

Travel to another state? In this case the “mother” is the U. S. government-specifically the DHS through the TSA.

“U.S. government already requires international passengers to participate in the Advanced Passenger Information System, providing their full name, gender, date of birth, nationality, country of residence, and travel document type and number to the TSA before boarding. Under the proposed Secure Flight Program, this procedure would also be required on domestic flights.”

Should there be a case of mistaken identity, there is no way for you to correct that since there is no clear appeals process if you’re denied boarding or have to go through extra screening constantly.

Your papers, please.

Vaccine Did Cause Autism

The U. S. Government has admitted that autism in one child was caused by vaccines she received. I will quote from the bottom of the document:

“In sum, DVIC has concluded that the facts of this case meet the
statutory criteria for demonstrating that the vaccinations CHILD
received on July 19, 2000, significantly aggravated an underlying
mitochondrial disorder, which predisposed her to deficits in cellular
energy metabolism, and manifested as a regressive encephalopathy with features of autism spectrum disorder.”

The child also suffered from seizures which they originally denied were from the vaccine. Later they changed their mind:

“PS: On Friday, February 22, HHS conceded that this child’s complex partial seizure disorder was also caused by her vaccines.

By the way, it”s worth noting that her seizures did not begin until six years after the date of vaccination, yet the government acknowledges they were, indeed, linked to the immunizations of July, 2000, – DK”

This is not the end as there are over 400 cases waiting to be heard about others with vaccine injuries.

Doesn’t sound so far-fetched now, does it?

Germany, Poland, Britian and the EU

Some German homeschoolers have been fleeing to the UK in order to continue homeschooling.

“Jonathan Skeet, who is British-born, said that he, his wife and five
children, aged between two and 11, were driven from Lüdenscheid after the authorities froze their bank account, removed money from it and confiscated their car.”

This is exactly what communist countries do to political dissidents. I hope these people are only making their stay in the UK brief, because the EU will come after them. I do not know when this will happen, but it will happen

The UK is part of the EU and in the EU, individual nations are not allowed to have laws differing from the EU. Poland and the Baltic states are already learning this lesson:

“When Poland joined the EU in May 2004, it did so on condition that “no EU treaties or annexes to those treaties would hamper the Polish government in regulating moral issues or those concerning the protection of human life.” However, in January 2006 the European Parliament called for “tough action” against Poland and the Baltic states, while Franco Frattini, the EU justice commissioner, warned that the EU has powers under Article 13 of the EU Treaty to combat homophobia. The move came after Latvia included an amendment in its constitution that restricts marriage to a man and a woman, and Estonia proposed similar legislation. Some members of the European Parliament have called for punishing Poland and the Baltic states by suspending their voting rights in EU councils.”

And we know that the EU Court of Human Rights has already ruled that the State can deny parents the right to homeschool.

“While the Court postured itself as defending the rights of the child
and declared the State to know better than parents the best interests of their children, it also endorsed a “carefully reasoned” decision of the German courts indicating the State had an interest in subordinating value systems competing with the state’s secular values.”

This is why I hope that the families that fled to the UK aren’t planning to stay. They would do better to go to a non EU country.

How long will it be before the EU goes after homeschoolers in other states?

Censoring Journalists

Matthew Lee, a journalist who has a small web site and has been exposing some of the U.N.’s corruption, has been banned from Google News.

Though his writing is clunky, his methods unorthodox (and often highly annoying) and his news judgment sometimes more than a little off the mark, Lee has hit his share of bull’s-eyes and became an outlet for whistleblowers inside the U.N.

“I’ve been covering … U.N. stories, three to four a day, for two years, and for the last two years there’s been no problem at all,” Lee said. “Then that Friday, I received the e-mail. There’s something a little skeezy here. I think that Google got involved with the U.N. on these Millennium goals and thought, this is the United Nations, if they tell you some small Web site is a thorn in their side and there’s a credible reason you could remove them from your news service, you do it.”

I have to say, it does seem odd that Lee got de-listed after he challenged Google about their non-signing of the human-rights and anti-censorship compacts.

Google has said that Lee’s site will be re-instated, but it will take a couple of weeks. It doesn’t matter whether you agree with Lee or not. It is disturbing that here in Amerika, America, that a journalist would be censored because a company or organization does not like what the journalist writes.

We are becoming more and more like China, Cuba and Russia every day.

Detention Camps

There has been talk of detention camps in alternative media for a few years now. Mainstream media and a lot of people dismissed this notion. This news has now hit the mainstream, courtesy of the San Francisco Chronicle:

Beginning in 1999, the government has entered into a series of single-bid contracts withHalliburton subsidiary Kellogg, Brown and Root (KBR) to build detention camps at undisclosed locations within the United States. The government has also contracted with several companies to build thousands of railcars, some reportedly equipped with shackles, ostensibly to transport detainees.”

This contract has been in effect for close to nine years now. What other contracts have been done secretly?

What could the government be contemplating that leads it to make contingency plans to detain without recourse millions of its own citizens?”

That is a very good and very chilling question. The government is already removing children from families if they disagree with the medical treatment given to the child. See the post below this one for that story.

Do we still think detention camps are a myth? Do we still think we live in a free society?

The Wrong Set of Beliefs

Nate Tseglin was forcibly taken form his home because the state disagreed with the way the parents were treating him.

“The teacher reported seeing self-inflicted scratches on Nate’s body and complained about the doctor-approved arm restraints his parents used to keep Nate from hurting himself.”

The teacher did not like the scratches, nor did she like the doctor approved restraints. It appears that these parents could not have pleased this teacher no matter what they did.

Adding more insult to injury:

“…even though the court determined “the evidence is clear that the parents have always stood by and tried to help their son,” the court sided with the government.”

The court did not say the Tseglins were abusive. The court did not say the Tseglins were neglecting their son, but that didn’t matter. They still took Nate from his parents, and do not allow them to be involved in decisions regarding his care.

Nate first went to a group home but after he ran away, the state decided to punish him even more by putting him in a mental facility with the criminally insane. His parents are concerned that he will suffer all sorts of abuse there.

CPS also told the Tseglins that they have “…”wrong set of beliefs” and even threatened to force them to undergo court-ordered psychological evaluation.”

Of course, even if the Tseglins were to change their beliefs, who’s to say that their new beliefs would be acceptable to the State? And therein lies the problem-that the State gets to decide which beliefs are acceptable.

Sounds more like China than the U.S. to me. And they’re coming after the poor and immigrants today-who will it be tomorrow?

Missing Things and People

We recently discovered that some of the financial records are missing from our congregation. I do not think that is a coincidence.

Worse than that is that we are missing some people that had been there a few weeks ago. One of them I know was contacted by our rabbi’s wife, but all she got was their answering machine. I contacted this person last week and had no answer. I contacted her again this weekend and no response as of yet.

Another person has been missing-the first week due to a death in the family, but they were not there last week which gives me some concern.

These are just a few of the people I’m concerned about-there are others. Regarding the first person I am wondering when enough is enough-how long do I continue to contact someone who does not respond? I’m not ready to give up now, I really am concerned about her, and don’t want to be a pest. This is why I limit my contact to once a week on different days.

I also know you can’t make a person respond back to you. It would be sad to lose even more people.

Staying or Going

If you have been reading this blog for the past month, then you know that we have endured a congregational split. If you need some background, start here. In the second comment there are links to my other posts-a total of 4 so far, excluding this one.

Anyway, we are quietly wondering if we should stay. It seems that people have left for various reasons even before this recent trouble. Our minds are not changed regarding the handling of this event-we still think that the board and wolf were wrong for what they did.

What does concern us is that there seems to be a pattern of people leaving every so often and we are not quite sure what to make of that.

And I have been curious as to why we were moved here. Not in an angry or accusing way-but in a truly perplexed way. The Lord knew this was going to happen. What I don’t know is why He wanted us here to witness this.

As the king says in the musical “The King and I”- “It’s a puzzlement.”
