Last week, a Facebook user named Carol Lockwood shared a photo and story of Melanie Dudley nursing her 4-month-old baby in a hotel restaurant, with a blanket totally covering her head. Why on earth would she cover her head up? Because in 2018 people (in this case a man) are still asking women to cover up when they nurse their babies and yet not the least bit upset about lingerie shows on prime-time TV or half naked pictures of women in the mall.

“What difference does an increase in the National Debt make? We owe it to ourselves.” our typical congress-critter has declared. Such a paraphrased statement, reflecting on the exoskeleton structure of the Federal Reserve, ignores the inner historic mechanisms of Rothschild banking, the intense subterfuge and arm-twisting of the Fed’s creation, and the proven destructive forces inherent but hidden therein. 1

The medieval Rothschild Banks established a line of credit for the King provided the King issued a written promise to pay gold, with interest, to the bank at a time in the future. The book-entry Rothschild credit was used to pay for obligations incurred by the king and the credit continued to be circulated in the kingdom between merchants. The bankers sold the king’s interest bearing promise of gold to investors. The promise was renewed on its maturing date and was perpetually rolled-over. 2

VOILA !!! The king made the suppliers of services happy with Rothschild credit; the bankers had the gold; the public had a promise that the king would eventually pay them in gold—which would never happen. 3 Everything went smoothly as long as the bank could sell the promise and the people did not demand the gold. 4 As Benjamin Ginsburg has lamented in FATAL EMBRACE; (bankers) AND THE STATE 5, eventually the schemes, which stole the wealth from the people, would come to a catastrophic climax. 6 More

The Elder Abuse Crisis in Minnesota

Finally! News you can use for seniors!

The Silver Standard

 

 

 

 

By David Holmberg

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’m from Minnesota, and you might call me a loyalist. All my life, I’ve taken pride in the state’s reputation as a citadel of progressivism. It’s produced an impressive roster of socially conscious politicians—Hubert Humphrey, Eugene McCarthy, Walter Mondale, Orville Freeman—and ranks at or near the top among the fifty states in social services, education, and cultural advantages.

But these days in Minnesota, there lingers the stigmatizing taint of elder abuse—the shocking (especially to a Minnesotan) revelation by the Star-Tribune of Minneapolis that “each year, hundreds of Minnesotans are beaten, sexually assaulted, or robbed in senior care homes. Their cases are seldom investigated, leaving families in the dark.”

A 2010 study showed a six-fold increase in reported incidents in the state’s senior care facilities, which may have been a catalyst for a 2017 investigation by the Star-Tribune that uncovered another disturbing statistic: in 2015, “the Minnesota Department of Health received 25, 226 allegations of neglect, physical abuse, unexplained serious injuries, and thefts in state-licensed homes for the elderly.”

Said a board member of the Minnesota Elder Justice Center, Iris Freeman: “We should all be appalled at this picture. Minnesota used to be at the top of the heap when it came to elder-abuse enforcement, and now we’re becoming known for being non-responsive.”

But the state did mobilize its legislative, law enforcement, and senior care resources in response to the Star-Tribune’s investigation. It was a response you’d expect in a state with a strong collective instinct for change when change is demanded. It improved compliance standards, developed better programs for training and monitoring employees, and opened communications between law enforcement and other agencies. More

Social Networking: An Undeclared Mission

Author,

In order to truly be aware of the mission of a social networking site, one needs to understand that privacy and loyalty to the user needs to be first and foremost. Filtering and censorship that is done by a few sites for the purpose of promoting a specific and biased agenda characterized by a certain political stance such as Marxism, or any another rogue ideology, places far reaching limits upon freedoms, nor, is it consistent with the Bill of Rights and becomes a strike at the very heart of America’s constitutional fabric and republic. With that said, America’s core values such as love and liberty that was endowed upon its people was no accident and it came with a cost, and to this day, that mission still requires that its people continue to seek that higher ground and strive for even more justice for all. However. even so, there is another mission that has showed its hand and has already become a clear and present danger, not only to America but also to the rest of the world. Case in point. Facebook’s recent blocking of a post of the Declaration of Independence as “hate speech” is quite over the top by any sense of the word. Suppressing viewpoints and important historical events is clearly an infringement of the First Amendment with regard to freedom of speech and of the press.

I may add that the Washington Times on Tuesday, April 10, 2018 brought to the reader’s attention that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg acknowledged that Silicon Valley is an “extremely left-leaning place” but said he tries to make sure his firm doesn’t “have bias in the work that we do.” So there was no bias in blocking the recent post of the Declaration of Independence, right? This is called “doublespeak” to the max. I find it very hard to even imagine that a social network site would go to these extremes, but then again when I was in my last year of college I was astounded that our Sociology Professor assigned the book Karl Marx. But that wasn’t my first encounter with far left professors during my 4 year college stint in the great late state of California.social networks

SCOTUS, the Constitution, Freedom and Your Health

We stand at the crossroads of liberty or despotism. Each day the news brings examples of assaults on life and liberty. These include:

The multifaceted assault on individual freedom is by design, as outlined in the teachings of Karl Marx, Saul Alinsky, and other radical leftists whose goal is to tear down the principles and institutions that made America the quantum leap in the history of humankind, based on the exceptional idea that Life and Liberty are natural rights that come from our Creator, not from government.
