Top 13 ‘Coincidental’ Connections Between Communitarianism and COVID, racism protests, Climate Change and 2020.

2020.09.13 15:00 secretymology Top 13 ‘Coincidental’ Connections Between Communitarianism and COVID, racism protests, Climate Change and 2020.

  1. Community policing replacing state police
Clearly the Defund The Police aspects of the BLM narrative play directly into the currently-vague communitarian LE alternative solutions they propose.
In the UK we will soon have COVID marshalls (Marshall law?) to police COVID measures specifically:
https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/sep/10/boris-johnson-covid-marshals-plan-criticised-shambolic-england
2) Precrime elements and identification of ‘problems’:
“Every American city and town that has Community Policing follows the same principles for the new job of the police. Where it all originated is always sort of missing from the whole sales pitch presented on their websites.
"COP embraces two key policing strategies:
  1. Response to Incidents (R2I) [and]
  2. Problem Oriented Policing (POP).
COP balances the use of these two strategies through careful continuous analysis of activity patterns that permit differentiated police response to community needs." New Jersey COP
(John Deaton explains: "#2 is Non-incidental; i.e., Problem Oriented Policing = Precrime Over (real) Problems = Pretty Obvious Profiling." ) Problem Oriented Policing (POP) is a communitarian concept formulated in the 1980s.”
http://nord.twu.net/acl/ebookdownload/2020_ebook.pdf
3) A database of everything:
A communitarian system requires a database of everything. It needs to have a log of every piece of land: every drop of water, every animal, every insect, every plant, the air above it, the minerals below it, and every individual living on planet Earth.”
The Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) was created to achieve this objective by Professors John McKnight and Jody Kretzman.
Kretzman denies being a communitarian, but his co-author and co- designer McKnight (Barack Obama's mentor and the signature on his Harvard Law School application), signed the Responsive Communitarian Platform.”
In Mapping and Mobilizing Community Capacity, McKnight and Kretzman spell out the need for building a sustainable community based on neighborhood assets. Assets are the possessions, properties, skills and abilities of human beings.
ABCD also screens for local training potential. Leadership is rewarded with a higher ranking volunteer position, a no-bid government contract, or a big fat grant.”
Community Mapping, Planning and Analysis for Safety Strategies (COMPASS) is another of the many international COPS’ data gathering software programs. (P.107)
Communitarian data is all linked into a global Geographical Information System (GIS). It can be accessed from anywhere in the world.
The GIS began primarily as a database of grid maps and satellite imagery used to map utilities, public roads and public services. GIS maps show the terrain, the streets, where the power lines and sewage pipes tie in, garbage routes, traffic lights, buildings and emergency facilities like hospitals and fire stations.
The GIS stores essential knowledge used to run a modern city. In the right hands, GIS technology is a benign tool. Much like a handgun, it can be safely and responsibly put to good use. But the communitarians have a more sinister design for the potential layers of data stored together in one giant, global GIS. (P.107)
In 1992, the UN suggested the GIS as a tool to implement Local Agenda 21plans. The potential for the GIS is endless.
"The Multistate Anti-Terrorism Information Exchange (MATRIX) pilot project leverages proven technology to assist criminal investigations by implementing factual data analysis from existing data sources and integrating disparate data from many types of Web-enabled storage systems. This technology helps to identify, develop, and analyze terrorist activity and other crimes for investigative leads. Information accessible includes criminal history records, driver's license data, vehicle registration records, and incarceration/ corrections records, including digitized photographs, with significant amounts of public data records. This capability will save countless investigative hours and drastically improve the opportunity to successfully resolve investigations. The ultimate goal is to expand this capability to all states." (U.S. Senator Michael B. Enzi from Wyoming, in a letter to Wyoming citizen James Dobson on 1/10/05. Senator Enzi, like George Soros, is a close associate of Dr. Amitai Etzioni)
http://nord.twu.net/acl/ebookdownload/2020_ebook.pdf

4) Emphasis on conditional human rights rather than unalienable individual rights
The idea that common people must be governed by elites is always the same, but morphs every hundred years or so; the latest version of elitism is called human rights. One primary difference between individual rights and human rights is that under individual rights the burden of proof always rests on the state, whereas the more moral communitarian idea of human rights puts the burden of proving innocence on the accused.“ (p.34)

5) Emphasis on responsibilities rather than rights
We hold that our call for increased social responsibilities... is not a call for curbing rights. On the contrary, strong rights presume strong responsibilities." Amitai Etzioni, Informal Education Homepage
“This year they will gather at Rio Janeiro, Brazil for the 20th Anniversary of the Earth Summit, to celebrate 20 years of implementing United Nations Local Agenda 21 Programme for Sustainable Development around the globe. Issues that cross all borders, like global food security, climate change, degradation of the environment, economic crises and political unrest set the stage for world leaders to lay out their global management solutions. After years of careful preparations and agreements between elite powers, it is agreed that every individual on the planet must be subordinated to the global community. The common good will forever replace the outdated and destructive notion of individual rights.”
6) Emphasis on the collective rather than the individual
“As a scholar who dedicated the last 15 years to communitarian public philosophy, I have frequently argued that individual rights have been unduly expanded, often at the cost of the common good... In addition, I devoted a whole book to the limits of privacy, and I am among those who hold that Sept. 11, 2001, changed what constitutes a "reasonable" search.” Amitai Etzioni Communitarian Newsletter #4, received on the [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) elist, October 17, 2005. Also in The National Law Journal Online on September 19, 2005.
Limits to personal freedoms under the pretext of “the common good”:
Revised Noise Ordinances establish new limits for lively or loud behavior. Permits are required for even small gatherings. Large parties require background checks of all the hosts and hiring of licensed security guards. Airline travel is subject to monitoring. Hunting, fishing and guns laws change so fast, who knows what they are?” (P.79)
7) Public Private Partnerships AKA corporatism AKA fascism:
“Certain words that define communitarian programs can be found in all the new programs. Partnerships between the government and the corporate business sector (formerly known as Fascism) and coordination are key ingredients to Rebuilding Community.
"We are a unified Department with a shared focus: strengthening our Nation – through a partnership with individual citizens, the private sector, state, local, and tribal governments, and our global partners. We must also coordinate across Federal agencies, while shaping homeland security policy and coordinating incident management." DHS 2008 Strategic Plan
https://www.fdle.state.fl.us/Domestic-Security/Documents/DHSStrategicPlan2008-2013.aspx
“The truth of their hidden agenda is now known and we know their real intentions. These people are front-men for the New World Order communitarians. Communitarian policy has been seen as fascist corporatism with the primary difference that instead of focussing on nation states, own country and people, it propagates a supranational policy. A secondary difference is it influences by means of informal social structures, like for example Common Purpose, instead of by institutionalised State violence - at least for the time being.” (p.278)
Private security firms, privatisation of the NHS etc are all becoming publicly accepted under the pretext of COVID. As the global economy crashes further, we will see increasing ‘assistance’ from private corporate entities.
8) Neighbourhood snitching and informants encouraged
The desire of local authorities to interact more with ’good citizens’ within communities to root out ‘problems’:
The Wars on Poverty, Drugs, Terror, Smoking, Obesity, and Crime follow Hegelian protocol for waging wars on people who show signs of State censored behaviors. What kinds of behaviors "give rise to public safety issues"? Whatever bothers the "good" people. Sold to us as just, friendly, "neighbor" cops, the new police play by international rules”.
“We’ll all help rebuild a global-to-local communitarian community. Hidden assets are uncovered during communitarian information interviews. During HUD-COPS’ crime prevention programs they are called Knock-and-Talks. In the 1980s, cops went door-to-door interviewing neighbors and identifying potential “problems.”
9) Erosion and outright demolition of private property rights.
“Corona Power Grab: Local Govts Given Power to Demolish ‘Contaminated’ Buildings“:
https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2020/08/06/uk-local-councils-given-power-to-destroy-contaminated-buildings/
“Conservation easements pick away at the borders of private property along streams and new public trails. Habitat and species restoration calls for confiscation of all private land designated as necessary to seeing the vision completed. Building permits must be pre-approved by professional global-to- local developers to ensure they fit in with the vision.” (p.79)
The removal of property rights is happening in myriad ways. Using the pretext of sustainability, we have even seen tribes thrown off ancestral lands:
https://www.theguardian.com/global-development/2016/aug/28/exiles-human-cost-of-conservation-indigenous-peoples-eco-tourism
Non-human species are given precedence under communitarian law; they are given much larger portions of space. Human activity in Wildlife corridors is regulated. Human beings have been identified as a threat to the planet and are reduced to being either a problem or an asset.
10) Chipping and tracking individuals:
“Insiders know that Communitarianism is the foundation for Corporatism and Monopoly Capitalism too. Hurricane Katrina helped push the idea for chipping Americans onto the COMPASS database. The new chips can be uploaded and altered via satellite.
"The ultimate solution may be that provided by a service called VeriMed. As do the other providers, VeriMed stores your PHR online — but then also provides a tiny chip that is Implanted, usually under the skin of your upper arm, containing a unique 16 digit number." “Create your own digital medical record - How to make sure your vital information isn't lost“ by Michael Rogers, Columnist, Special to MSNBC (2005)
(P.102)
11) Volunteerism, “in it together’:
In the UK we’ve been asked in the last six months of lockdown to volunteer for the health service, on farms etc. Nothing wrong per se, admirable in theory, but it undeniably serves as communitarian training. Some on state benefits have been compelled or persuaded to work in order to maintain their benefits. Some are additionally asked to volunteer for vaccine studies.
”Communitarians know what it means to give something back. They understand the need for re-training Americans. They value pure volunteerism. They believe it is in the best interests of the “community at large” to be able to identify every individual in the area. People should help. We’re all part of the new Homeland Security plan to make America safer. That’s why the Department of Homeland Security uses ABCD maps too. It’s vital to “security.”
[ 2020: Our Common Destiny – page 99 of 326 – The Anti Communitarian Manifesto ]
12) Transnational corporations continue unfettered and increase prosperity, while local business is closed down under the weight of regulation(s)
A report entitled "The Quiet Revolution," prepared for the Council of Environmental Quality in 1971, contains a powerful statement of problems caused by delegation of land use control to towns, villages, boroughs, cities, and townships:
"This country is in the midst of a revolution in the way we regulate the use of our land. . . . The ancient regime being overthrown is the feudal system under which the entire pattern of land development has been controlled by thousands of individual local governments, each seeking to maximize its tax base and minimize its social problems, and caring less what happens to all the other."
www.jstor.org/stable/2562684
Meanwhile:
“Communitarian agreements sound fair and just, but all they accomplish is to protect global corporations from competition. In global disputes, communitarian law will always favor corporate interests over the small-fry local property or business owners.”
“A big problem is the fact that U.S. law was established by free men to safeguard themselves.
Sustainable partnerships between corporations and governments gets rid of the main barrier to the vision. The US government was created to protect the property and rights of individuals. US law assures individuals retain self control. Citizens oversee all US government affairs. Board directors of private companies are not subservient to citizens. The US government is accountable to everybody.... that's what the law says anyway.
Global-to-Local business partners are not even accountable to their own stockholders. Private-public partnerships blur the lines so that only the “stakeholders” know what the stakes are in the real game.“
13) Global poverty, health and education crises in the developing world, exacerbated purely by COVID measures used as a pretext for a fairer, more equitable...blah blah blah...
UN report finds COVID-19 is reversing decades of progress on poverty, healthcare and education:
https://www.un.org/development/desa/en/news/sustainable/sustainable-development-goals-report-2020.html
"A new world order must provide for the full and fair participation of the majority of the people of the world who live in developing countries. They must have equitable opportunities to share the benefits, just as they share the risks, of our technological civilization. And surely the highest priority should be accorded to eradication of the dire and debilitating poverty that condemns so many people, particularly in developing countries, to suffering and hunger that are an affront to the moral basis of our civilization. This is one of the primary themes of Agenda 21." Remarks by Maurice F. Strong Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Ontario Hydro Chairman, The Earth Council, The European Institute, Washington, D.C., USA, November 4, 1993
Taxpayers should begin paying their debt to the global society now...
"... the United States has introduced major new initiatives: the Global Health Initiative (GHI) and Feed the Future (FTF). Through the GHI, the United States will invest $63 billion to help countries build and strengthen their health systems and achieve significant improvements in health outcomes, with a particular focus on women, newborns, and children. Through FTF, we will invest $3.5 billion over three years to sustainably reduce poverty and hunger through agricultural development and food security."

2020.06.04 17:08 ChildfreeFamily Help fact-checking a list of well known Childfree people

I'm compiling a list of childfree people for a blog. I have found a few lists online (which have been helpful). But in some cases they were not up-to-date. A person may have had children since being added to their list (example: I had to remove George Clooney who appeared on a number of lists). Or there might be some people missing who should be on the list.
If you have a moment to scan the list and let me know of any other errors or omissions it would be appreciated.
It has been fun working on this list. A few people on it surprised me. Thanks again for any help.
\Edit for clarification: the term "childfree", in the sense of this list, will be in regards to people who never had a child from a live birth, fostered a child, adopted a child, or was a step-parent.*

How the discovery of Paititi The lost city of gold

Many explorers have died searching for Paititi: the Lost City of Gold, and many became convinced that the city was hidden in the last undiscovered regions of the Amazon.
The infamous journeys to discover Paititi were also what inspired Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to write "The Lost World."
Much has been documented about the divine sense of quest to discover this magical kingdom. From treasure hunters to archaeologists and explorers, Paititi has until now remained the subject of lore and tribal legend spread through generations.
But now, a remote location in the Peruvian Amazon thought to be the legendary Lost City has been discovered and is the target for a professional expedition taking place this summer.


The search for Paititi : The lost city of gold

Inca traditions mention a city, deep in the jungle and east of the Andes area of Cusco which could be the last Incan refuge following the Spanish Conquest.
The Spanish conquistadors pillaged Cusco for its gold and silver, they only discovered a small amount of bounty in the capital, and the bulk of the mass treasure has never been found.
Just recently a Spanish Galleon that sunk over 300 years ago, was discovered off the coast of Columbia and possibly holding billions of dollars worth of treasure looted from Peru.
In 2001, Italian archaeologist Mario Polia discovered the report of a missionary named Andres Lopez in the Vatican archives.
In the document, which dates from 1600, Lopez describes in great detail, a large city rich in gold, silver and jewels, located in the middle of the tropical jungle called Paititi by the natives.
Lopez informed the Pope about his discovery and the Vatican has kept Paititi's location secret for decades.
Due to the remote location of the area, as well as dense mountains that have to be traveled, it is no wonder that Paititi remains so hard to find. Currently drug trafficking, illegal logging and oil mining are overtaking this part of Peru, and many amateur explorers that enter are often killed.
Legendary explorer Greg Deyermenjian explains his extraordinary devotion to the area,
"The quest for Paititi, for the furthest presence of the Incas into the selva (jungle) beyond the ranges, began for me after having visited, in 1981, the site of Vilcabamba, the redoubt of Manco Inca - who did finally rebel against the Spaniards after enduring nearly three years of their increasingly harsh rule - at Espíritu Pampa in the forested plains of La Convención province to the northwest of Machu Picchu.
It was then that I began to hear about a site which lay hidden somewhere off to the east, where the Andes and the Amazonian rain forests meet in a riot of hills, ravines, and isolated peaks, all covered in jungle and crisscrossed by unnavigable boulder-strewn rivers and streams.
And in 1984 I began traveling there, to the north and northeast of Cusco, first in the company of Cusqueño hunters who had made forays well past their holdings in Paucartambo, and then with the Quechua-speaking highland campesinos of Challabamba and Calca that I had met through them."

Famed explorer Greg Deyermenjian

"Beginning in 1994, we allied ourselves with Peru's foremost living explorer, Dr. Carlos Neuenschwander, who had been conducting his own investigation into Paititi and the significance of the Pantiacolla plateau since the 1950's.
We were unable to raise funds sufficient for a helicopter, so we found ourselves following branches of the main trail that traverses the Paucartambo Mountains, down to the jungles of Callanga, southeast of Mameria, where we investigated potential sites that were spotted from the air by Dr. Neuenschwander years before.
We found the very rough and decayed remains of an ancient Incan, as well as an apparently pre-Incan habitation, and we made a first ascent of another legendary tropical peak, known as "Llaqtapata".
On our way back through the remote and dusty highlands of the Cordillera de Lares/Lacco that overlooks the Río Paucartambo/Mapacho, we passed through impressive and finely constructed Incan sites such as Tambocancha and Uncayoc, which must have at one time guarded these routes.

By 1999, we were in a position to take a helicopter from Cusco, North to the Plateau of Pantiacolla, thanks to our additional alliance with German film maker Heinz von Matthey.
We left the helicopter at the furthest point that we had followed as far as we could in 1993. We passed a relatively elaborate Incan retaining wall above the trail, then descended to the headwaters of the Río Timpía.
Over the course of the next week we saw that the rough and totally overgrown trail continued ever downward, through the increasingly broken and precipitous territory of the valley of the Timpía.
It was easier to follow the river itself, with its raging waters and huge slippery boulders and logs, than to try to directly follow the totally overgrown and uprooted remnant of a trail clinging to the valley wall a few hundred meters above.

After having climbed now upriver, up and out of the cloud forest, to emerge back at the high alturas where we had begun, we soon ran into some wandering vaqueros, cowboys, who had driven the cattle to these lonely grasslands for unlimited grazing.
From them we learned of an enchanted lake shaped like a figure "8", astride ancient ruins, in a perpetually rainy and cold area to the northwest.
Thanks to the preternatural sense of direction of my long-term expedition partner, Paulino Mamani, as well as my GPS and an aerial photography generated map which showed such an unnamed lake in the area we approached, we found it.
And here were a series of low Incan platforms and retaining walls, which, along with the remnants of Incan trail and retaining wall closer to the Timpía, constitute the furthest Incan remains yet found directly north of the Incan capital of Cusco.

It is here that an unnamed mountain range overlooks the Río Yungaria, a tributary of the Callanga, in the tangled jungles between the zone of Mameria to the north and that of Callanga to the south.
I saw the beginnings of this isolated tropical range in 1994, when, from the confluence of the Río Yungaria and the Río Callanga, where Paulino and I were searching for some gigantic terraces that Dr. Neuenschwander had spotted years before from the air, I marveled at how precipitously the territory behind the Yungaria soared upward and away from the river, beyond sight.
Then in 1995, from a high perch on the eastern edge of the Andes, as we were ascending from the valley of the headwaters of the Callanga to the highlands to the west, I caught a glimpse of the mighty peaks of this strange massif, which seemed to reach to a height quite uncommon for tropical mountains out beyond the Andes: while the entire range was enveloped in what appeared to be a thick mantle of green vegetation, the actual peaks were shrouded in what appeared to be perpetual cloud around the summits. Adjacent areas, as described by long-time Paititi seeker, Padre Juan Carlos Polentini, are said to harbor the extensive ancient stone ruins that could be the legendary Paititi."
NOTE: Some portions of Greg Deyermenjian's writings have not been edited due to space restrictions. Visit complete manuscript here.
Even civilian explorers like California based adventurer and photographer Fernando S. Gallegos have been inspired to explore the area.
His detailed and fascinating account of reaching Pusharo, deep in the Amazonian jungle after surviving tarantula swarms and being stranded in torrential rains, shows exactly how arduous and dangerous the journey is.
I asked Fernando what compelled him to take such dangerous journeys and he explained:
"I want to rekindle that forgotten sense of curiosity that we all seem to lose when we enter adulthood.
The thought of discovering some physical link to that part of our imagination we deem as unrealistic or impossible is motivation enough to reassure myself that perhaps some greater beyond all expectation still exists out there waiting to be found."

In my exclusive interview with famed French explorer Thierry Jamin, I was able to get the most updated information as to the next steps in discovering Paititi later this year.
What are your plans for discovering the Lost City of Paititi this summer?
For about twenty years, my team and I dedicated our searches on the tracks of the permanent presence of the Incas in Amazonian forest. We looked for their main center of population: the lost city of Paititi. Since 1998, we have completed about twenty expeditions in the southeast of Peru.
In 2009, we ventured into a lost valley, North of Cusco:
the valley of Lacco.
In Quechua, the word "lacco" means "labyrinth", or "the place where we get lost".
Accompanied by archaeologists from the Ministry of Culture, we were surprised to discover numerous unknown archaeological sites of the modern archaeology: fortresses, small centers of agricultural production, several necropolises and complete cities populated with hundreds of buildings.
These were real "Pompeii Amazonians"! From 2009 till 2013, we continued to discover more than forty complete sites.
Situated on original Incan stone paths, these lost cities seem to lead to the north of Cusco, towards the National Sanctuary of Megantoni. This sanctuary shelters one of the most difficult to access forests in South America. It is the cradle of the Matsiguengas Indians, with whom we have a very good relationship.
Since 2010, several Matsiguengas Indians told us about the existence of a strange mountain, at the top of which would hide the ruins of an old stony city: the legendary city of Paititi. During several years, we tried to locate this mysterious mountain.
Then, in June, 2012, the French company Astrium helped us obtain a series of satellite photos of exploration zone. In certain photos, we localized a very strange mountain of square shape, one thousand meters aside.
We would say a cube, in the heart of the forest, encircled by abysms of a several hundred meters deep.
A site apparently very strategic, easy to defend and impossible to invade.

A hundred meters west of this mountain, two twin lakes and a mysterious square lake, seem to confirm the testimonies of the Matsiguengas. All of the legendary traditions assert that Paititi was built near such extents of water.
We tried to reach this mountain in 2011 in vain and then, in 2012, new discoveries in Machu Picchu took away from our search for Paititi. But in 2013 and 2014, other expeditions allowed us to approach our goal of only a few kilometers.
The jungle of Megantoni is dangerous and very difficult to access, especially for a team moving with important supplies. Our diverse expeditions have not allowed us yet to reach the ruins of the lost city.
Nevertheless, the Matsiguengas Indians are convinced: it is at the top of this "well cut" mountain that hide the vestiges of the queen of the South American lost cities.

Tell me about your expedition to that area this year?
We have prepared our next exploration with the objective of reaching the "square mountain" and the lakes by helicopter.
After several unfortunate attempts, we arrived at the conclusion that the helicopter is the only way to reach this zone. If we manage to finance this operation, the expedition will take place in July. It should last three weeks.
We plan to explore the mountain in great detail, but also the lakes, thanks to the use of a ROV (automatic soumarin robot) and with professional divers. Several professional archaeologists will also participate in the operation.
The probability to discover an important archaeological site, of the scale of Machu Picchu, hidden at the top of this mysterious mountain is very big.
I am convinced that we shall soon experience the discovery of Paititi.
Critics have commented that further exploration to these remote indigenous communities will bring disease and cause harm. How do you respond to their criticism?
Communities of the uncontacted Kuga Pakuris Indians live in the Sanctuary of Megantoni, but not in the area we are exploring, which is very difficult to access.
These Indians live in the hunting areas. The area of the "square mountain" is surrounded by vertical walls of nearly a thousand meters high and Kuga Pakuris never go to that area. We are in permanent contact with Matsiguenga of Megantoni tribes, who participate in our expeditions.
This area is part of their territory, rather than the "uncontacted" tribes.
All of our search campaigns are carried out within a legal framework, with the permission and participation of Peruvian authorities (Ministry of Culture and Ministry of Environment - SERNANP)

Can't you just fly over the area and use modern radar LIDAR technology rather than disturbing the environment?
It would be quite possible to use the radar technology, such as LIDAR.
But they are still very expensive for us. And nothing beats field research. The radars cannot perform the exploration in underwater lakes. This is the essence of archaeological research.
On the ground, we use modern technology: GPS, drones, ROV, endoscopic cameras, scanners, etc. And this we can only do on the ground.
The purpose of the operation "Paititi 2016" is to reach the famous "square mountain" by air, with the use of a helicopter. We have never tried that approach before. We want to spread the legend of Paititi through science.
We need science and professional archaeologists to reach the lost city BEFORE the huaqueros or treasure hunters arrive.

This is the challenge of our research.
We know, for example, that a Spanish team visited last September, near the Sanctuary of Megantoni without any permit, in search of Paititi. They are unfortunately not the only ones.
Our satellite images of the "square mountain" were widely disseminated. Other adventurers, unscrupulous, may try to reach the area clandestinely in search of the legendary gold.
Science must discover the site of Paititi first and return this great historical and archaeological treasure to the hands of the World Heritage Site.
This is the challenge of our 2016 exploration."

THE HISTORY OF PAITITI EXPLORATIONS
1600: Missionary Andres Lopez discovers Paititi and writes to the Vatican about his findings.
1925: Percy Harrison Fawcett, the inspiration for "Indiana Jones" attempts first exploration to the area. The archaeologist and South American explorer, along with his eldest son disappeared under unknown circumstances during an expedition to find "Z" – his name for the ancient lost city. Brad Pitt is currently shooting the film "The Lost City of Z" about Fawcett's adventure and life.
1954: Hitler's photographer Hans Ertl discovered many Pre-Columbian sites and claimed to have discovered Plato's Atlantis in the Bolivian Altiplano. The Nazi propaganda cinematographer exiled to Bolivia where he went on to shoot the expedition documentary "Paititi".
1958: Peruvian explorer Carlos Neuenschwander Landa led multiple expeditions in search of Paititi. He discovered the Inca stone path, located in the mountains of Paucartambo, and was the first person to describe, document and disseminate Hualla fortress located in the rural area of Calca. In his expeditions he has concentrated on the plateau where he sought the city of Paititi. He eventually wrote the book "Paititi in the mists of History."
1970-2002: Carlos Neuenschwander Landa organizes several expeditions in the national park of Manú in search of the lost city. They land by helicopter at the petroglyphs of Pusharo.
1971: A French-American expedition led by Bob Nichols, Serge Debru and Georges Puel travelled up the Rio Pantiacolla from Shintuya in search of Paititi. The party's guides left after a 30 day agreement expired, and though the three continued on, they never returned. In 1972 Japanese explorer Yoshiharu Sekino contacted Machiguenga Indians in the area and confirmed that the expedition members had been killed by Indians.
1979: French-Peruvian couple Nicole and Herbert Cartagena discover the ruins of Mameria. For the first time, researchers discover inca ruins in Amazonia. This discovery constitutes the first scientific proof of the presence of Paititi.
1984-2011: Various expeditions led by Gregory Deyermenjian. These included the documentation of Incan remains in Mameria, the exploration and documentation of the petroglyphs at Pusharo, exploration and documentation of Manu's Pyramids of Paratoari, and others.
1997: Norwegian biologist Lars Hafskjold set out to discover the ancient tribe of Toromona, the origins of the Paititi legend. He disappeared somewhere in the unexplored parts of Bolivia and has never been found.
2001: The Kota Mama II expedition led by John Blashford-Snell located some significant ancient ruins in the jungle east of Lake Titicaca in Bolivia which are believed to be identical to those discovered earlier by Hans Ertl.
2001: French explorer Thierry Jamin investigated the site of Pantiacolla. The pyramids are in fact natural formations but Jamin discovered several Inca artefacts in the same area.
2002: Polish explorer Jacek Pałkiewicz undertook an expedition under the patronage of the government of Peru upstream on the Madre de Dios River in search of Paititi. He eventually became famous for locating the source of the Amazon River. He subsequently wrote several novels on his explorations including El Dorado, Hunting the Legend.
2004: "Quest for Paititi" exploration team of Gregory Deyermenjian and Ignacio Mamani discovered several important Inca ruins along branches of the Inca Road of Stone at the peak known as Último Punto in the northern part of the Pantiacolla region of Peru.
2005: Thierry Jamin and French-Peruvian Herbert Cartagena studied Pusharo petroglyphs and discovered large geoglyphs in a valley nearby. They reportedly found a "map" showing where Paititi might be located. Further expeditions were set up in the following years.
2009-2011: Various expeditions by Italian researcher Yuri Leveratto who reached one of the Pyramids of Pantiacolla.
2009-2013: Thierry Jamin and his group explores the valleys of Lacco, Chunchusmayo and Cusirini, in the North of the department of Cusco, on the tracks of Paititi. Accompanied by the Peruvian Ministry of Culture, they bring to light forty archeological sites, including Hualla Mocco, Torre Mocco, Lucma Cancha, Llactapata, Apucatina, Pantipallana and Chaupichullo.
2011: British expedition to investigate the Pyramids of Paratoari with Kenneth Gawne, Lewis Knight, Ken Halfpenny, I. Gardiner and Darwin Moscoso as part of the documentary "The Secret of the Incas."
2014: TV host Josh Gates and Gregory Deyermenjian searched for Paititi while filming "Expedition Unknown" for the Travel Channel. They were forced to return after running out of supplies.
2015: Paititi documentary directed by Michel Gomez, for the Peruvian national channel Latina based on Thierry Jamin's book "The Adventurer of the Lost City"
2016: Thierry Jamin will fly with helicopter research teams to further explore the newly discovered possible location of Paititi.

Ancient "Lost City" Discovered in Peru
- Official Claims - by Kelly Hearn January 16, 2008 from NationalGeographic Website


Cut stones (top) and masonry walls (bottom) recently discovered in southern Peru could be the ruins of the legendary \"lost city\" of Paititi, according to the mayor of the town where the site were found. Archaeologists are being sent to the site to investigate the claim. Source

Ruins recently discovered in southern Peru could be the ancient "lost city" of Paititi, according to claims that are drawing serious but cautious response from experts.
The presumptive lost city, described in written records as a stone settlement adorned with gold statues, has long been a grail for explorers - as well as a lure for local tourism businesses.
A commonly cited legend claims that Paititi was built by the Inca hero Inkarri, who founded the city of Cusco before retreating into the jungle after Spanish conquerors arrived.
On January 10 Peru's state news agency reported that "an archaeological fortress" had been discovered in the district of Kimbiri and that the district's mayor suggested it was the lost city.
Mayor Guillermo Torres described the ruins as a 430,000-square-foot (40,000-square-meter) fortification near an area known as Lobo Tahuantinsuyo.
Few other details about the site were offered, but initial reports described elaborately carved stone structures forming the base of a set of walls.
The state media report quotes Torres as saying the area will be "immediately declared" a cultural tourism site.
Officials from the Peruvian government's Cusco-based National Institute of Culture (INC) met with Torres on Tuesday, according to Francisco Solís, an INC official.
"It is far too early to make any definitive judgments," Solís told National Geographic News. "We are going to dispatch a team to investigate."
Officials expect more details to emerge in the coming days, he said.
Legend of Paititi
Paititi is believed to have been located somewhere east of the Andes Mountains in the rain forest of southeastern Peru, southwestern Brazil, or northern Bolivia.
In 1600 a missionary reported seeing a large "city of gold" in the region where Paititi is believed to have been built, according to archival records discovered by an Italian archaeologist in 2001.
However, the location of the newfound site falls counter to where historical records indicate Paititi should be, Solís said.
Officials were nonetheless intrigued by the possibilities, he added.
The first task will be to determine if the newfound ruins are the work of the Inca or pre-Inca ethnic groups, Solís said.
Gregory Deyermenjian, a U.S.-based psychologist and explorer who has led many expeditions to investigate the Paititi legend, said many people in the tourism-rich region of Cusco have embraced the legend as a business promotion.
But he said the claims could have merit, as there are still many important sites to be found.
"It is a bit off the beaten path but still within the Inca's reach," Deyermenjian said. "I'm very interested to know more."
Daniel Gade, professor emeritus in geography at the University of Vermont, cautioned about jumping to conclusions.
"Paititi is frequently the first thing people mention when something like this is found," Gade said, adding that there are many ruins in the jungle regions of the area.

2019.11.20 05:26 A_solo_tripper The Federal Reserve: History of Lies, Thievery, and Deceit

The Federal Reserve: History of Lies, Thievery, and Deceit
by Dr. Ken Matto
Former Congressional Candidate, 6th District N.J.
"I place economy among the first and most important virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers. To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt."
 -Thomas Jefferson 
Did You Ever Wonder Why The National Debt Keeps Going Up and Up?
One of the most ungodly and fraudulent institutions ever perpetrated on the American people and the world, is the Federal Reserve System which through deceit became the central bank of the United States in 1913. The idea came about on a meeting in Jekyll Island off the coast of Georgia in 1910. The bankers in this country, especially J.P. Morgan, created a currency panic in 1907 in order to get the American people to accept the idea of a central bank.
A central bank already existed in England from as far back as 1694. The Rothschilds completely dominate the banking system. It is estimated their wealth goes into the trillions.
Baron Nathan Mayer Rothschild boasted:
• "I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England to rule the Empire on which the sun never sets. The man that controls Britain's money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply." 
The idea of a central bank is to so enslave the people of the country to a debt money system that you continue to collect taxes continuously which just covers the interest. The duped people of the United States are paying about $400 billion dollars per year to the IRS which is the collection agency for the Federal Reserve. By the way, the Federal Reserve is a privately owned bank with 10 private members. The Chase Manhattan Bank is a member which is owned by the Rockefellers who are Rothschild Agents. I will list the ten member banks at the end of this article..
At this point the citizens of the United States falsely owe these lemmings over 13 trillion dollars. Have you ever asked the following question?
WHO HAS THAT MUCH MONEY TO LOAN TO THE UNITED STATES?
History of Lies During the time of the Babylonian captivity of Judah, a man named Jacob Egibi became the founding father of modern banking. While Judah was in captivity, Jacob began a business of loaning out money for a rate of interest. During the Reign of King Kandalanu of Babylon (circa 648-625 B.C.) a new phenomenon appeared on the scene which Jacob Egibi played a major part, and that was the invention of private banking. There were 2 prominent families at this time, they were the Egibi family and the Iranu families. These 2 families are not a figment of imagination as their names have appeared in many cuneiform tablets discovered by Archaeologists. It is believed that the Egibi family was taken with the first captivity into Assyria and then later migrated to Babylon. At the time of the 70 year captivity, Jacob Egibi already had an ongoing private banking business in which he collected large sums of interest. Now we have secular insight as to why many of the Jews did not want to return with Nehemiah to rebuild the temple at Jerusalem.
By the time of the end of the captivity, many of the others who were in captivity with the Egibi families learned this evil business practice and began to set up shop. A good example of this are the moneychangers which the Lord Jesus Christ threw out of the temple. As a friend of mine said to me many times, "Christ drove the moneychangers from the temple and was crucified 4 days later."
During the time of the Persian period, loan sharking became a business where interest rates of anywhere from 30-50% were charged. As time went on, the writings of the Roman historian Tacitus, tells us that during the reigns of Caesar Augustus (27 BC - 14 AD) and Tiberius (14-32 AD) records of the Roman empire reveal deposits, withdrawals, brokers fees and loans. When the western Roman Empire fell, banking continued to thrive in Egypt, Byzantium, and the Arab nations of the Red Sea.
When the Christian era began to take hold and the church became a powerful entity, she returned to the Old Testament Edict of not charging usury and this idea continued up until the time of the Renaissance when banks began appearing across Europe. To show you how some kings despised usury, I offer 2 quotations:
...if any man is found taking usury, his lands will be confiscated, and he will be banished from England...
Alfred the Great, King of England; 849-901 A.D.
...If a man is found taking usury, his lands will be confiscated. It is like taking a man's life, and it must not be tolerated...
James 1, King of England; 1566-1625 A.D.
With the rise of international trade which commenced at the end of the medieval period, many of the banks were allowed to coin money for their transactions. At that time, there was no such thing as national money and when the banks minted coins, they were all of different value which created a dilemma for international trade. The first "Christian" gold coins were struck by Emperor Frederick II in 1225 A.D. Then came the "ducats'' of Portugal, the "florins" of Florence, the "agnels" of France, and the "sequins" which became the official coins of Genoa and Venice.
Europe then progressed from the Feudal system and with this came trade between different nations which resulted in foreign moneys accumulating in the various cities in Europe.
1694: The Year which Doomed the World's Economies The government of King William III was in desperate need of money. When learning of this situation, a man named William Patterson put together a cartel of wealthy men, of which he was the leader. Patterson and cronies agreed to loan the King 1,200,000 pound sterling which would have been approximately 6 million dollars at 8% interest per annum on the condition that the king would grant 2 things:
1) He would grant Patterson and his associates a charter which would name them "The Bank of England," and
2) This bank shall have the "sole and exclusive right" to issue notes to the fullest extent of its capital.
The people were having a problem with their gold and silver coins of which the bankers quickly came to the rescue. The solution is aptly described by Professor Carroll Quigley in his book, Tragedy and Hope:
• ...for generations men had sought to avoid the one drawback of gold, its heaviness, by using pieces of paper to represent specific pieces of gold. Today we call such pieces of paper "gold certificates." Such a certificate entitled its bearer to exchange it for pieces of gold on demand, but in view of convenience of paper, only a small fraction of certificate holders ever did make such demands. It early became clear that gold need be held on hand only to the amount needed to cover the fraction of certificates likely to be presented for payment; accordingly the rest of the gold could be used for business purposes, or, what amounts to the same thing. A volume of certificates could be issued greater than the volume of gold reserved for payment....Such an excess volume of paper claims against reserves we now call bank notes. In effect, this creation of paper claims greater than the reserves available means that bankers were creating money out of nothing... 
The King literally granted the Bank of England the legal right to print all the money that would be used in commerce by the people and the government. In other words the Bank of England became the sole money source of any currency that was used in English commerce by either the people or the government. If they needed more money, they simply printed it. It is said that by 1698 British government owed 16 X 10 to the 6 power pounds sterling to the Bank of England. Keep in mind this was only 4 years.
1773: The Second Date of Infamy In 1773, a wealthy goldsmith and coin dealer named Mayer Amschel Bauer (1743-1812) summoned 12 wealthy and influential men to his place of business in Frankfurt, Germany. His purpose for the meeting was to impress upon these men that if they pooled their resources, it was possible to gain control of the wealth, natural resources, and manpower of the entire world. He then outlined a 25 point plan on how to accomplish it.
Those 25 points are: 1. Use violence and terrorism rather than academic discussions. 2. Preach Liberalism to usurp political power. 3. Initiate class warfare. 4. Politicians must be cunning and deceptive – any moral code leaves a politician vulnerable. 5. Dismantle existing forces of order and regulation. Reconstruct all existing institutions. 6. Remain invisible until the very moment when it has gained such strength that no cunning or force can undermine it. 7. Use Mob Psychology to control the masses. Without absolute despotism one cannot rule efficiently. 8. Advocate the use of alcoholic liquors, drugs, moral corruption and all forms of vice, used systematically by agenteurs to corrupt the youth. 9. Seize properties by any means to secure submission and sovereignty. 10. Foment wars and control the peace conferences so that neither of the combatants gains territory placing them further in debt and therefore into our power. 11. Choose candidates for public office who will be servile and obedient to our commands, so they may be readily used as pawns in our game. 12. Use the Press for propaganda to control all outlets of public information, while remaining in the shadows, clear of blame. 13. Make the masses believe they had been the prey of criminals. Then restore order to appear as the saviors. 14. Create financial panics. Use hunger to control to subjugate the masses. 15. Infiltrate Freemasonry to take advantage of the Grand Orient Lodges to cloak the true nature of their work in philanthropy. Spread their atheistic-materialistic ideology amongst the Goyim (gentiles). 16. When the hour strikes for our sovereign lord of the entire World to be crowned, their influence will banish everything that might stand in his way. 17. Use systematic deception, high-sounding phrases and popular slogans. The opposite of what has been promised can always be done afterwards... That is of no consequence. 18. A Reign of Terror is the most economical way to bring about speedy subjection. 19. Masquerade as political, financial and economic advisers to carry out our mandates with Diplomacy and without fear of exposing the secret power behind national and international affairs. 20. Ultimate world government is the goal. It will be necessary to establish huge monopolies, so even the largest fortunes of the Goyim will depend on us to such an extent that they will go to the bottom together with the credit of their governments on the day after the great political smash. 21. Use economic warfare. Rob the "Goyim" of their landed properties and industries with a combination of high taxes and unfair competition. 22. Make the Goyim destroy each other so there will only be the proletariat left in the world, with a few millionaires devoted to our cause, and sufficient police and soldiers to protect our interest. 23. Call it The New Order. Appoint a Dictator. 24. Fool, bemuse and corrupt the younger members of society by teaching them theories and principles we know to be false. 25 Twist national and international laws into a contradiction which first masks the law and afterwards hides it altogether. Substitute arbitration for law.
The plan was put into operation and evidentiary information exists that Bauer aligned himself with Adam Weishaupt who was the founder of the Illuminati whose aim was and still is world domination. Bauer later changed his name to Rothschild which means "red shield." He took it from the red sign which hung outside his place of business. The eagle was clutching 5 golden arrows in its claws. It was supposed to symbolize his five sons. Presently the red shield represents the official coat of arms of the city of Frankfurt, Germany.
Later on each of the five sons were dispatched to a major city in Europe to establish a branch of the Rothschild banking firm.
Son #1 - Amschel - Remained in Frankfurt and propelled Germany to financial success under Bismarck.
Son #2 - Salomon - Went to Vienna, Austria. he became a leader in the Austria-Hungary Empire.
Son #3 - Nathan Mayer - Went to England where he took control of the Bank of England.
Son #4 - Carl - Went to Naples where he became the most powerful man in Italy through his banking skills.
Son #5 - James Jacob - Went to Paris where he established the central bank. He was credited with dominating the financial destiny of the nation of France.
By 1850, the House of Rothschild represented more wealth than all the families of Europe. Shortly after he formed the Bank of England, William Patterson lost control of it to Nathan Rothschild and here is how he did it:
• Nathan Rothschild was an observer on the day the Duke of Wellington defeated Napoleon at Waterloo, Belgium. He knew that with this information he could make a fortune. He later paid a sailor a big fee to take him across the English Channel in bad weather. The news of Napoleon's defeat would take a while to hit England. When Nathan arrived in London, he began selling securities and bonds in a panic. The other investors were deceived into believing that Napoleon won the war and was eyeing England so they began to sell their securities too. What they were unaware of is that Rothschild's agents were buying all the securities that were being sold in panic. In one day, the Rothschild fortune grew by one million pounds. They literally bought control of England for a few cents on the dollar. The same way the Rockefeller's went into Japan after World War 2 and bought everything 10 cents on the dollar. SONY=Standard Oil New York, a Rockefeller Company. 
Frederick Morton wrote in his book, The Rothschilds:
• "...the wealth of the Rothschilds consists of the bankruptcy of nations." 
There were other wealthy families in Europe and America which were allowed to join "the international banking club" such as John D. Rockefeller and John Pierpont Morgan.
Early American Wisdom The Americans had won their political independence but their financial independence was in jeopardy. The international bankers had an agent in place and his name was Alexander Hamilton who wanted a central bank. Thomas Jefferson lobbied vehemently against the central bank stating it was contrary to the Constitution. However, a central bank was formed in 1781 known as the Bank of North America which was patterned after the Bank of England. The colonists wanted nothing to do with it so it folded in 1790. The international bankers countered the closing of the Bank of North America by gaining a charter for the Bank of the United States which was chartered on February 25, 1791. The Bank of France desired the formation of the US Bank also and it was chartered for 20 years.
In 1826, the second bank's charter was soon to expire and presidential candidate Andrew Jackson campaigned strongly against a central bank which was owned and operated by the international banking element. Here is Jackson's opinion of those bankers:
• "You are a den of vipers. I intend to wipe you out, and by the Eternal God I will rout you out...If people only understood the rank injustice of the money and banking system, there would be a revolution by morning." 
In 1836, the charter did expire but that was not the end of the international banking influence in this country. The Civil War was planned in England as far back as 1809. Slavery was not the real cause of the Civil War. The Rothschilds (who were heavy into the slave trade) used the slavery issue as "a divide and conquer strategy" which almost split the United States in two. The Bank of England financed the North while the Paris branch of the Rothschild bank funded the South. In 1863, the National Banking Act was passed despite protest by President Lincoln. This act allowed a private corporation the authority to issue our money.
Enter 1913 In November of 1910, some of these vultures came together at the Jekyl Island Hunt Club on Jekyl Island, Georgia. What were they hunting? The biggest prize of all, the absolute and complete control of all the money in America which means control of all America and with it the power to make slaves of all the people.
Those who attended were: Senator Nelson Aldrich (Nelson Rockefeller's maternal grandfather); A. Piatt Andrew, Economist and Assistant Secretary of the Treasury; Frank Vanderlip, President of the National City Bank of New York; Henry P. Norton, President of Morgan's First National Bank of New York; Paul Moritz Warburg, a German who was partner in the New York banking house of Kuhn, Loeb Co.; Benjamin Strong, an aid to J. P. Morgan.
Paul Warburg was credited as the architect of the bill which was passed by Congress and signed by traitorous Woodrow Wilson. It was entitled the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. America once again had a central bank but this time they had placed America under an absolute dictatorship. President James Garfield had insight into this situation:
• "It must be realized that whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolutely master of all industry commerce." 
The Federal Reserve was incorporated in 1914 and has been creating a completely unnecessary national debt ever since. In simple terms, the Fed creates money as debt. They create money out of thin air by nothing more than a book entry. Whenever the members of the Fed make any loans, that debt money is our money supply.
The United States went bankrupt in 1938 because of this system. It took the Fed only 25 years to bankrupt the USA. Can you imagine how little time it would take these vultures to bankrupt a developing nation? The American people are paying about $300 billion dollars a year in interest to this phony organization. When you look in the Washington, D.C. phone book, you will not find the Federal Reserve in the Government section as they are a private concern.
The national debt is increased about $1.71 billion dollars every day (as of October 12, 2004) . Have you taken a look at your money? It says "Federal Reserve Note" which means it is an instrument of debt. There is no real money in circulation.
The Assassination of President Kennedy One of the greatest coverups in history was the Killing of the President. If you believe the Mafia did it, then I have ocean front land in Kansas for you to buy. President Kennedy was murdered over money, $4 billion dollars worth. You see, he had printed $4 billion worth of non-interest bearing money which meant he began to chop at the profits of the vultures. Interest free money means the national debt is eliminated and the power of the international banking element is broken. So to prevent Kennedy from abolishing the illegal Fed, he was assassinated. Coincidence? As soon as the traitor Johnson was in office, he recalled all the debt free notes and continued our country in the same path of ruin. There, the mystery of the killing is over. Just follow the trail of the money.
War Now that the Federal Reserve was firmly in place, schemes had to be constructed to get the government to borrow so a continuously growing national debt would happen. So here are some coincidences: The Federal Reserve is created in 1913, then in 1914 we have World War 1. Right at the end of World War 1, we have a depressed economy especially in the Weimar Republic where 2 billion marks could buy a loaf of bread. In 1917, we had the Bolshevik revolution in Russia. A man named Lord Alfred Milner was a front man and paymaster for the Rothschilds in Petrograd during the revolution. He later headed a secret organization called The Round Table which was dedicated to a one world government run by wealthy financiers under socialism.
Then, lo and behold, in the 1920's we see a little known corporal with 12 men meeting in a beer hall in Munich while in America the Roaring 20's were in progress until October, 1929. Then the Federal Reserve withheld money from circulation so bills could not be paid, while simultaneously they were calling in all their loans which caused the stock market to crash. By 1932 the price of stocks had plummeted 80%. When the bankers plunged this nation into a depression on that fateful day in October, at the New York Stock Exchange was a visitor, his name was Winston Churchill who stated after the crash of '29, "Now I know who wields the real power." The key to understanding the Great Depression is to realize that when the Federal Reserve had contracted the money supply, there was not enough money in circulation to pay bills, to hire people, to pay back loans, etc. The crash of the stock market was the symptom but the cause was the Fed restricting the money supply. This is their weapon which is used today. When they flood the country with money, this causes inflation.
Then we come into the 1930's and the rise of Hitler. Hitler was also funded by Wall Street through the Industrialist I.G. Farben. Let's test the theory of follow the money. Here is a little known corporal with no money meeting in a beer hall in Munich with only about 12 men. In a seriously depressed and defeated country, there begins to rise another military dictatorship. By 1934 the Nuremberg Rallies were in place and Germany was rebuilt. In that countries' economy who had that much money to rebuild Germany into a powerful country which marched across Europe and almost defeated Russia in the first 24 hours of Case White (The invasion of Russia)? The answer is the bankers of the USA and England. In fact, a banker named Bernard Baruch was President Roosevelt's personal advisor during World War 2. Baruch made $200 million dollars as a result of World War 2. During WW2 the Rockefellers were selling oil to the Germans from their Standard Oil concern in Argentina.
The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) was formed in 1919 in Paris, France by Colonel Edward Mandell House who was known as Woodrow Wilson's alter ego. The CFR was and still is dedicated to the one world rule under a new world order. In fact, every war has been planned by the CFR. Every American President since 1919 has had their cabinet filled with CFR members. Also our traitorous Presidents fill their cabinets with not only CFR members but those of the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderbergers, the Yale Fraternity of the Skull and Bones (George Bush was a member of this).
These members insure that the will of the bankers are done, even if the President is not a member of any group. After WW2, was fought another war was created known as the Korean War (which was started by a phone call from John Foster Dulles), then the Vietnam War. During the Vietnamese War, the Rockefellers had a metals processing plant going full blast in North Vietnam. The Rockefellers have the blood of thousands of Americans on their hands because of their supplying the Russians with weapons and metals. The North Vietnamese received their weapons from Russia. The only reason these rats are never indicted for treason, is because since WW2 there has never been a declared war which means if we have no official enemy, there can be no aiding the enemy AKA treason.
Presently we have skirmishes such as the Gulf War of 1990 which was an experiment by the New World Order crowd to see how fast they can assemble an army in case a country does not choose to obey the dictates of the banker bosses. Of course funding for the gulf war came from borrowing money from the Fed. Wherever you hear of a limited war, or some type of political destabilization, think of the money trail. Wars are started in foreign countries, then our President goes there and gives millions of dollars of borrowed money which normally goes into the pockets of the dictators. Nowhere in our Constitution is it written that our government is to borrow money and give it away.
At this point I want you to click on the following web site and see the reality of the death of America:
The Debt Clock
Final Thoughts The American economy has been sucked dry by the Federal Reserve System. Americans think they own property but the truth is the entire United States has been mortgaged to the bankers. The Rothschilds and Rockefellers become richer while the peoples of the world become poorer. The International Monetary Fund and the World Bank are also designed to loan money to developing nations with the understanding that they will never be able to repay so with every loan made to a country, it becomes their death knell. The entire world has been plunged into a debt economy which means 6 billion people are in debt to about 250 men. But keep in mind that all their wealth is phony because it is created money without any gold backing.
I really laugh when Wall Street bows down to Ben Bernanke who is nothing more than a boot licker of the International Banking element who takes his orders by phone too. So many people rejoice when the Federal Reserve has a policy meeting and no interest rate increase happens. The truth is that we should never have a Federal Reserve to begin with. They print money, loan it into circulation, and the American people are strapped with more debt.
I remember leaving materials on the Federal Reserve at a meeting of Concerned Women for America. The next day I went back and not one copy was taken. The reason given me was because it was not approved material. Groups like Concerned Women for America and the Christian Coalition and Rush Limbaugh are something known as controlled opposition. They are allowed to exist as long as they do not bring up the real issues. If they stick to the created liberal Democrat Vs. conservative Republican agenda, they can exist and the bankers will even make them famous. But you will never hear a Beverly LaHaye, Tim LaHaye, Jim Dobson, Billy Graham, Gary Bauer, or any other famous Christians ever tackle the real issues like the illegal Fed which causes all the poverty in every country. If these people would think for a minute that if $350 billion dollars a year was not being sucked out of the economy and was used for the people in this country, we would surely have enough to help other nations and our own problems. Crime would almost be non-existent with a monetized money system. The Great Commission would also be funded without worrying if there will be enough left over to feed the children.
THE TEN MEMBER BANKS OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE All owned by the Rothschilds Rothschild Bank of London Warburg Bank of Hamburg Rothschild Bank of Berlin Lehman Brothers of New York* Lazard Brothers of Paris Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York* Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy Goldman, Sachs of New York Warburg Bank of Amsterdam Chase Manhattan Bank of New York
*In 1977 Kuhn Loeb and Lehman Brothers merged to create Kuhn Loeb, Lehman Brothers, Inc.
Now ask a question - Where is the Federal Government of the United States listed and how much does it get? I will answer it for you, it is not listed because the Federal Reserve is private and it receives nothing.
WAKE UP PEOPLE!!! WAKE UP!!! THE FEDERAL RESERVE IS ILLEGAL AND OUR IMPOTENT CONGRESS REFUSES TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT AND ABOLISH THE FED. THEY WOULD RATHER ALLOW US TO REMAIN IN BONDAGE FOREVER. DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS ARE BOTH USELESS ENTITIES BECAUSE THEY ARE BOTH BOUGHT AND PAID FOR BY THE BANKERS. from: https://www.scionofzion.com/federalreserve.htm
THE NATIONAL DEBT IS PHONY!!!
A Warning to the bankers and their sycophants! There is a God in Heaven which you have spurned and ignored and He has allowed you, in His plan, to pull this Fed scam on the indolent American people. There is coming a day, and very soon in which all of you will stand before Christ and be cast into an eternal hell. Every secret deal you made, every war which killed innocent children and young men and women, you will give account for. You will have no power nor excuse. Many of your colleagues are awaiting the judgment right now and they will weep, as you will, realizing that for a few years of luxurious living, an eternal hell is awaiting. That is the interest you will pay.

Recently referred to as the ‘Exploding Business of Bartering’ in a Harvard Business Review, this is an International multibillion dollar industry and it is within this industry that ‘Bizpaye’ has experienced exceptional growth and expansion. This is confirmed by having organically grown to 12 countries in just 5 years with new countries and franchises opening over the coming months. In summary, BIZpaye represents an outstanding success story and provides a solid foundation on which to build a Crypto asset.Consequently, on the back of this success ‘BIZpaye CRYPTO’ is entering into the ever growing world of the Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies and, will become the 4th currency available to current and future BIZpaye Merchants.

This is an important factor as most tokens focus efforts towards stimulating ‘token holder’ use only however, BIZpaye focuses on stimulating merchants ‘to accept’ tokens therefore, with an existing & growing list of merchants who accept these tokens, consumer token holders will organically transact through increased opportunities adding value to BIZpaye CRYPTO token.In addition, current & future Blockchain technologies will enhance the transaction experience for BIZpaye members & merchants alike, meaning they will also be able to barter their goods & services through BIZpaye to purchase tokens. In essence, the world of ‘Barter’ is opening up to the incredible world of Cryptocurrencies. BIZpaye CRYPTO will bring to the Blockchain a real world marketplace with 1000’s active merchants with all the future possibilities that this represents.Finally, BIZpaye CRYPTO — with its unique token name of ‘CRYPTO’, the generic name used throughout for tokens and coins providing instant ‘name recognition’- is the world’s first barter industry token and, being world’s first barter industry token provides Members and consumers alike with a ‘first mover advantage’ where new merchants can sell excess products to other BIZpaye members & get paid in BIZpaye barter credits and most importantly, use those barter credits to purchase BIZpaye CRYPTO tokens. Add to that active marketplaces already in place where products are bought & sold every day together with a constant stream of new products that will come online daily for token holders to buy using BIZpaye CRYPTO, many new merchants joining the network all driving the value higher the future for BIZpaye CRYpto is indeed an bright one.

Welcome to BIZpaye & more importantly, BIZpaye CRYPTO.
https://preview.redd.it/m04n506o68d31.jpg?width=600&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=72541bc22db21c980f085e7dbb53ee8114f16b9d
Welcome to BIZpaye & more importantly, BIZpaye CRYPTO.
With a history of success in the Trade Exchange industry across many countries worldwide, trading millions of dollars of products and services across many borders, the BIZpaye International Group of Companies Core Team have more than 100 Years of combined experience in Barter, Crypto & Collective Currencies, Exchange & Currency Management, International Trade, Software Development, Sales & Marketing and more.
In addition, BIZpaye has invested heavily into systems, technology, Franchise systems and procedures and much more and, it is with this background, the company has launched its own Crypto token opening up a new exciting world of business growth.
BIZpaye CRYPTO — the uniquely named token — provides an opportunity to not only reach more like-minded business owners and customers, through already established Global Marketplaces but also offers an opportunity to strive for potential new ways to transact through the ever-growing Crypto market.
An important feature of this new venture is that BIZpaye has been actively trading and organically growing an International Merchant Network for many years unlike many ‘companies’ entering the Crypto Market with merely an idea and a promise.
To put it simply, BIZpaye CRYPTO has been part of a Global Business Plan for many years’ and is finally being launched to an excited market and is being actively advertised on the Corporate Website www.BIZpaye.com , www.bizpayecrypto.io as well. BIZpaye enters the Crypto Market with an established Global Merchant Trading network, which is a unique proposition for any Crypto Token today providing a real-world use case for the Token from the start.
Launched in December 2018, the BIZpaye Crypto Token — with the world’s first and unique trading symbol of “CRYPTO” — opened onto the Blockchain via the Proassetz Exchange. With other exchanges planned, the intention is that the BIZpaye Crypto Token with this trading symbol of ‘CRYPTO’ will become the common reference to BIZpaye.
Via the BIZpaye Global Network new and ingenious ways for business owners to enter the Crypto market will open up whereby they will be able to effectively barteswap their goods and services to purchase BIZpaye Crypto, whilst growing their sales and customer base.
BIZpaye already has its own proprietary merchant ecosystem where the BIZpaye Crypto Token can be used for purchasing everyday goods and services worldwide, plus; having recently entered into an agreement with www.BuyShipSave.shop, Token holders can purchase anything from their online store, chose from thousands of everyday items and pay for these items with 50% of the price payable in BIZpaye Crypto, from there it will be delivered to the door worldwide making this truly a ‘Utility’ Token
BIZpaye, provides a flexible payment system for buyer and sellers, where they can use varying percentages of fiat, barter or Crypto in a single transaction, giving flexibility to accommodate the needs of both the buyer and the seller.
With the BIZpaye Group of Companies comprising a variety of different business units spanning many countries it provides the end users with a much fairer and more attractive form of trading at the same time meeting modern day expectations. All of this adds to and complements the launch of BIZpaye CRYPTO.
In conclusion, the BIZpaye Group of Companies has a proven transactional system that enhances both the cash flow and customer base of every business and offers a range of unique benefits that can only be found in the BIZpaye system. This provides a fantastic proven system upon which to launch a new Crypto currency leading to the growing expectations that the BIZpaye CRYPTO token will be an outstanding SUCCESS.
In anticipation of your interest in BIZpaye CRYPTO, we would like to invite you to contact us for more details interest and we look forward to growing the opportunities that BIZpaye can offer in the months and years ahead.

BIZpaye ‘CRYPTO’ — That’s what the excitement is about!

The ‘trade’ or ‘barter’ industry within which BIZpaye Barter operates, is a widely accepted system of exchange where merchants in a transaction directly exchange goods or services for other goods or services without normal currency. Recently referred to as the ‘Exploding Business of Bartering’ in a Harvard Business Review, this is an International multibillion dollar industry and it is within this industry that ‘Bizpaye’ has experienced exceptional growth and expansion. This is confirmed by having organically grown to 12 countries in just 5 years with new countries and franchises opening over the coming months. In summary, BIZpaye represents an outstanding success story and provides a solid foundation on which to build a Crypto asset.
Consequently, on the back of this success ‘BIZpaye CRYPTO’ is entering into the ever growing world of the Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies and, will become the 4th currency available to current and future BIZpaye Merchants. This will not only will provide normal business owners more scope in their quest to save money through the BIZpaye Barter services whilst continuing to enjoy increased sales but will also make BIZpaye CRYPTO an even more attractive proposition to merchants worldwide. All of this will add value to ‘BIZpaye CRYPTO’ to the benefit of all those people with the foresight to get involved at this early stage of the venture.
People often ask ‘but why is everybody so excited about “BIZpayeCRYPTO”? which, is both encouraging when we look at the number of people asking and surprising when a simple review of the company, the industry that it is in, the trading history and its future projections really provide the answer.
However, some important insights into the company, the project and of course, the future may provide clarity and show why there has been an enthusiastic response and exceptional take up of the current offering.
First we need to look at the focus of the business which is on ‘merchant growth’. This is an important factor as most tokens focus efforts towards stimulating ‘token holder’ use only however, BIZpaye focuses on stimulating merchants ‘to accept’ tokens therefore, with an existing & growing list of merchants who accept these tokens, consumer token holders will organically transact through increased opportunities adding value to BIZpaye CRYPTO token.
In addition, current & future Blockchain technologies will enhance the transaction experience for BIZpaye members & merchants alike, meaning they will also be able to barter their goods & services through BIZpaye to purchase tokens. In essence, the world of ‘Barter’ is opening up to the incredible world of Cryptocurrencies. BIZpaye CRYPTO will bring to the Blockchain a real world marketplace with 1000’s active merchants with all the future possibilities that this represents.
Finally, BIZpaye CRYPTO — with its unique token name of ‘CRYPTO’, the generic name used throughout for tokens and coins providing instant ‘name recognition’- is the world’s first barter industry token and, being world’s first barter industry token provides Members and consumers alike with a ‘first mover advantage’ where new merchants can sell excess products to other BIZpaye members & get paid in BIZpaye barter credits and most importantly, use those barter credits to purchase BIZpaye CRYPTO tokens. Add to that active marketplaces already in place where products are bought & sold every day together with a constant stream of new products that will come online daily for token holders to buy using BIZpaye CRYPTO, many new merchants joining the network all driving the value higher the future for BIZpaye CRYpto is indeed an bright one.

The BIZpaye team aims to off er ways to liquidize idle and spare capacity for small and medium sized enterprises and help them generate more revenue and provide a leaner business model.

On top of this the BIZpaye International Group of Companies has for the past 5 years invested heavily into our.
Transactional systems
For many years BIZpaye has been working closely with our technology partners, such as Global Exchange Trading Systems, Bartervana, Runasis and more to tailor existing platforms into workable systems that will allow BIZpaye Merchants to transact and trade to the unique ways in which BIZpaye has been design from the ground up. These
transactional systems include Merchant front ends and rear end Customer Relationship Management platforms designed to stimulate and enhance potential trading and transactions of Merchants.
Technology
Working in conjunction with our technology partners such as Global Exchange Trading Systems, Bartervana, Runasis and more, the aim has always been to keep BIZpaye on the forefront of technology within the industry using traditional offl ine and online platforms and systems to help develop and grow transactions and trading alike. With
the advent of BIZpaye moving towards the Blockchain, we see the opportunities to enhance both our Merchant experience and transactional systems as being almost endless, more secure and more transparent as a result of Blockchain technology adaptation.
Franchise systems
BIZpaye prides itself in the fact that leading into the offi cial launch of BIZpaye 5 years ago, more than 1 year prior to this, work began on the development of various resources and systems designed to support our Franchise Partners grow the BIZpaye network worldwide. From Franchise Manuals, the system process and documents, training packages and more we developed and continued to be developed and enhanced to help Franchisee’s enter new markets and grow existing markets.
Procedures
As Technology grows via the Blockchain, so will the new and enhanced sets of guidelines, procedures and training evolve off ering both Merchants and BIZpaye staff access and understanding how this new Blockchain based technology will interact with the day to day BIZpaye environment.
BIZpaye CRYPTO and the BIZpaye “CRYPTO” Token will join the already established transactional business units of BIZpaye, including BIZpaye Corporate, BIZpaye Trade, BIZpaye Rewards, BIZpaye Licensee, BIZpaye Property and Radio BIZpaye.
BIZpaye’s main Merchant trading ecosystem known as BIZpaye Trade has been operating for many years now, similar to that of a credit card, but using a Barter Credit system. A Barter Credit is a localized non-fi at accounting unit of payment used to record the value of barter transactions.
Most Governments worldwide recognize Barter Credits as a form of payment for Tax. A Barter Credit is pegged against the local currency or origin in which it is transacted in and cannot be moved across borders or exchanged for other local barter credits.

2019.01.31 02:11 squishykiwi2 Ted Bundy, Porn, and Evangelicalism

I recently watched the new documentary on Netflix about Ted Bundy. If you haven't watched it yet and are fascinated by serial killers and true crime docs, I highly recommend this one.
For those of you not familiar, Bundy raped, killed, and mutilated at least 36 women and practiced necrophilia with their corpses. After being convicted and sentenced to death, Bundy is interviewed and visited by all kinds of people including journalists and priests. In one interview he claims that pornography drove him to commit such evil acts, and cites the snowball effect of porn (needing more extreme things to be aroused) as one of the main causes of evil acts towards women.
Not surprisingly, Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family and numerous other evangelical leaders used Ted Bundy as their poster child to what happens when you watch porn. I remember growing up and watching videos where Dobson would cite this and we even watched the Bundy clip in Sunday school.
Watching this documentary triggered that angry response in me again because of how fundamentally wrong the church is for a lot of reasons:
  1. Watching porn doesn't turn you into a serial killer who hates women
  2. It takes the responsibility away from Bundy as if porn was his downfall, not his own actual evil
I don't particularly care for porn and I think there's plenty of very sad and shady business practices in the industry. But I'm so sick of Christianity demonizing it. It's not going way. Sex is not going away. People like to have sex and film themselves and make money off of it. Christianity needs to focus on teaching practices about safe sex, the importance of consent, and how to respect your partner. But they never will, and they will only perpetuate unhealthy sexual relationships based on fear, restriction, and sin.

2018.04.18 19:48 autotldr The Trump administration is paying Focus on the Family to stop the AIDS epidemic in South Africa: The anti-LGBTQ “church” took federal funds to give purity pledges to South African youths.

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 79%. (I'm a bot)
An affiliate of Focus on the Family received a $49,505 grant under the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief from the State Department's Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator on September 18, 2017, while the department was under the leadership of then-Secretary Rex Tillerson, according to USA Spending.
Focus on the Family's Thriving Family is tasked with using these funds to prevent HIV and AIDS by implementing its global abstinence-only purity pledge program, called "No Apologies," to 7,000 "Learners" in 90 schools in South Africa between October 2017 and September 2018.
Focus on the Family spreads its abstinence-only "No Apologies" program, which promises to teach the "Truth about life, love, and sex," to teens in countries crippled by the AIDS epidemic throughout the world.
"Focus on the Family Africa has used the No Apologies program to take the lead in promoting abstinence, not safe sex, as the route to curbing the spread of AIDS, and creating more stable family situations," the organization explains on its website.
In an email, Paul Batura, Focus on the Family's vice president of communications, said Focus on the Family Africa is an independent global partner and has been contracted by the South African government to alleviate the HIV/AIDS crisis in South Africa.
After AIDS began sweeping the globe in the 1980s, James Dobson and Focus on the Family were among the most vocal opponents of taking concrete action to address the epidemic, prompting President Ronald Reagan's own surgeon general, Dr. C. Everett Koop, to publicly chastise.

2018.01.06 12:45 Dark-Carioca [Respect] Gill-man, the Creature from the Black Lagoon (Universal Studios)

"Not since the beginning of time has the world beheld terror like this!"
Gill-man is an iconic monster of cinema, appearing as the main antagonist of the 1954 black-and-white science fiction film Creature from the Black Lagoon and its two sequels, Revenge of the Creature (1955) and The Creature Walks Among Us (1956). He is the last of a race of amphibious humanoids that existed back in the Devonian age and resided in a lagoon deep in the Amazonian rainforest.
Recommended Listening

Feats

Physiology & Senses
Being a non-extinct prehistoric amphibian of humanoid appearance, physically speaking Gill-man is a very complex creature.
Behaviour & Intelligence
Although very animalistic in nature, Gill-man constantly displays signs of intelligence far above that of the average wild animal, easily making him the smartest amphibian on Earth. He will only attack if provoked most of the time, since he fears humans just as much than they fear him.
Strength & Claws
Gill-man possesses immense strength, surpassing that of any human being in recorded history. Aside from his powerful muscles his hands and feet are also connected to some of the sharpest weapons in the animal kingdom.
Speed & Agility
The creature's reflexes are quite impressive as you'd expect from a wild animal, and besides being an adept swimmer capable of beating any olympic record, he's also an excellent leaper.
Durability, Endurance & Healing Factor
Covered in tough scales, Gill-man's armor protects him from most forms of damage. He has decent stamina and can heal from intense wounds and injuries relatively quickly.
Terrestrial Stage
During an attempt to capture Gill-man in The Creature Walks Among Us, the creature is badly burned in a fire leading to a surgical transformation performed by Barton, Tom and their colleagues Dr. Borg and Dr. Johnson. While bandaging the Gill-man, the doctors notice that he is shedding his gills and even breathing using some kind of lung system. Now that the creature has more human-like skin, he is given clothing. The doctors attempt to get the Gill-man used to living among humans. Although his life is saved, he is apparently unhappy, staring despondently at the ocean.
Barton ruins the plans when, in a murderous rage, he kills Jed, jealous that he had made romantic advances towards his wife. Realizing what he has done, Barton then tries to put the blame on the Gill-man. The Gill-man, witnessing the killing, and realizing that he is being blamed for the murder, goes on a rampage. After ripping down the confining electric fence, he kills Barton and then slowly walks back to the sea. He is last seen on a beach, advancing towards the ocean.
This new form takes away some of Gill-man's more formidable weapons and his mostly aquatic physique, but amps up his strength and durability by a noticeable margin.
Miscellaneous

Other

A semi-adaptation of Creature from the Black Lagoon simply called The Creature was made by Dell, later known as Dell Publishing, and released in either 1962, Dec.-Feb. of 1963 or Aug.-Oct. 1964(no source seems to know when it truly came out for some reason). Quite different from the original movie but with similar feats for Gill-man, I'll still add them here anyway.
In the late 80s classic The Monster Squad, Gill-man is featured alongside many of his Universal Monsters peers, with a new design courtesy of special make-up effects genius Stan Winston. He is much weaker than he is in the original trilogy, being killed by a single rifle shot to the chest, but he still shows off a few good feats:
In the first issue of the Cavewoman: One-Shot Special Gill-man, alongside his fellow Universal Monsters once again, appears. Beware as Cavewoman's comics are typically NSFW.
In the first issue of Nemo: River of Ghosts we see an entire colony of Gill-men, with countless males and females.
"In the beginning, God created the Heaven and the Earth. And the Earth was without form and void. This is the planet Earth, newly born and cooling rapidly from a temperature of six thousand degrees to a few hundred in less than five billion years. The heat rises, meets the atmosphere, the clouds form and rain pours down upon the hardening surface for countless centuries. The restless seas rise, find boundaries, are contained. Now, in their warm depths, the miracle of life begins. In infinite variety, living things appear, and change, and reach the land, leaving a record of their coming, of their struggle to survive and of their eventual end. The record of life is written on the land, where fifteen million years later, in the upper reaches of the Amazon, man is still trying to read it."

2017.12.30 18:59 ohsister3428 I [27 F] want to give advice/support to engaged sister [35 F] but not sure if appropriate

I'm the youngest of three kids from a home-school, evangelical Christian family. My brother and I are no longer religious but our older sister still is. My sister just got engaged and is getting married in a few months. Her fiance is a wonderful man and is less religious than her. I think they're a great match but I am worried about my sister going through this life change.
She has never had sex with anyone, never lived with a partner, and they have said they're also going to try for children immediately.
Our parents didn't give us a sex talk, my sister and brother were given cassette tapes by Dr. James Dobson about adolescence and Joshua Harris' book I Kissed Dating Goodbye and were told that premartial sex and masturbation were wrong. I got even less info. She has also struggled with OCD, particularly compulsion/obsessive thoughts about religious guilt her whole life (so have my brother and I).
I'm gay and agnostic but still dealt with a lot of emotional turmoil when I became sexually active. Unpacking all the damaging stuff I was taught about sexuality was really hard and I'm still dealing with it. I know my brother also had a really difficult time psychologically and emotionally when he became sexually active. This impacted his mental health in a big way. I am worried that my sister will be facing this difficulty in an even bigger way since it'll be in the context of "forever" (I don't think she believes in divorce as an option) and possibility of pregnancy.
My question is: how do I lend her support in a way that is appropriate and respectful? Do I say nothing and just be there when/if she struggles with her situation? I don't want to be patronizing and I don't want to disrespect her religious beliefs but I don't want her to be unprepared for how difficult it is to flip the switch from sex being "the worst possible thing you could do" to being fine.
tldr: my 34 yr old abstinent sister is about to be married, I am worried about how our upbringing will impact her ability to deal with sexuality in the context of marriage and how that will affect her mental health and marriage. How do I lend support to her in a way that's respectful to her life choices and religious beliefs?

Hi guys! So I was on the /rupaulsdragrace sub and I got so inspired by u/evilsnowcookie's "Where Are They Now" post that I decided to incorporate that idea for ANTM
  So this will be a compilation of the different websites and news articles, as well as posts from the girls' social media accounts on what they are up to these days. Maybe if you guys enjoy this, I'd consider making one for the succeeding seasons but for now, lets reminisce on the girls from Cycle 1.
 
  Name: Tessa Carlson Placed: 10th Age: 33 First Call Outs: 0 Bottom 2: 1 Twitter Followers: N/A Instagram Followers: 521 (@tessacarlson) Tessa Carlson on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 1 Tessa was a contestant on the first season of America’s Next Top Model. She, along with fellow model Giselle, were the only models of the cycle who were not part of the pool of 20 semi-finalists (they were scouted for and joined the cast after a separate audition). During her brief stint on the show, she was shown to bond with fellow contestant Adrianne Curry through smoking after moving into their NYC Apartment. At their first photo shoot for swimsuits from J.Lo by Jennifer Lopez, photographer Elizabeth Moss commented that “She probably had people teach her how to model the wrong way … that was her problem.” In the end, she was eliminated for lacking a dominant personality and her inability to pose.
  POST-TOP MODEL After the show, Tessa modeled for Noah Kalina and Joey Quintero, but has since decided not to pursue modelling. Despite being eliminated after the first photo shoot, she was included in the next photo shoot for Stuff Magazine, but was not shown in the episode. Since the show premiered in 2003, Tessa has gotten married and has focused on being a mother to two beautiful children.
  Name: Katie Cleary Placed: 9th Age: 36 First Call Outs: 0 Bottom 2: 1 Twitter Followers: 47.1k (@katie_cleary) Instagram Followers: 29.2k (@katiecleary11) Katie Cleary on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 1 Katie was a contestant on the first season of America’s Next Top Model. During the casting week, she was called fifth out the eight finalists for the first season (Tyra and the producers planned for 10 models to move into the NYC apartment, but could only agree on 8. The last 2 were scouted in a separate audition). She was eliminated in the second episode for because the judges felt the she photographed too sexy.
  POST-TOP MODEL Katie has been busy since the show’s premiere in 2003. She’s appeared in spreads for Maxim online, Rukus magazine, Marie Claire, Lifestyle magazine, and Vegan lifestyle magazine among others. She has appeared in over a dozen national advertising campaigns for brands such as InterContinental Hotels, Sketchers, Elastiderm Skin Care, AT&T, Nike, Chandon Champagne, Supreme Protein, Cadillac, ProActive, Payless, and as part of the Refreshment Duo for Labatt's Blue Light.

  Name: Nicole Nastazio, née Panattoni Placed: 8th Age: 37 First Call Outs: 0 Bottom 2: 1 Twitter Followers: 3,280 (@NicolePanattoni) Instagram Followers: 6,172 (@nicolepanattoni)
  ANTM CYCLE 1 Katie was a contestant on the first season of America’s Next Top Model. During the casting week, she was called first out the eight finalists for the first season (Tyra and the producers planned for 10 models to move into the NYC apartment, but could only agree on 8. The last 2 were scouted in a separate audition). She was eliminated in the third episode due to her lack of commitment (in both her photo shoot and in the makeover).
  POST-TOP MODEL After Cycle 1 aired, Nicole appeared in several maternity catalogs and magazines. Like all the girls from this cycle, she has appeared in a spread for Stuff Magazine. She has appeared in Maxim, Rebel Ink Magazine, ePregnancy, and Surf Illustrated.

  Name: Ebony Haith Placed: 7th Age: 38 First Call Outs: 1 Bottom 2: 2 Twitter Followers: 464 (@EbonyHaith) Instagram Followers: 539 (@haithebony) Ebony Haith on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 1 When Ebony became one of the finalists in America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 1, she was met with harsh criticism from the two very devout Christian ANTM finalists, Robin and Shannon. The conflict escalated when Ebony’s partner dropped by the house, further angering Shannon and Robin. Things turned uglier for Ebony during the judging, as she became the fourth contestant eliminated. The judges reasoned that it was Ebony’s weak performance that drove them to cut her from the show.

  POST-TOP MODEL After the show, Ebony was signed onto Downtown Model Management, before moving on to Uptown Model Management (UMM) and Models Management Group (MMG). Currently, I’m not sure what agency she is signed to. She has walked in fashion shows for SA-SHEA and Ice Blue. She’s been shot by photographers such as Quavondo Nguyen, Isabelle Choi, and Umari Jason and has appeared in spreads for Esquire, and Height Magazine. She has also appeared in appeared in Real Gay (a 2005 TV film) and Violet Tendencies (A 2010 movie). According to her instagram, she has shot her first sports shoot/TV show.
  Name: Giselle Samson Placed: 6th Age: 33 First Call Outs: 0 Bottom 2: 2 Twitter Followers: 249 (@GiselleSamson) Instagram Followers: 1,295 (@GiselleBelle84) Giselle Samson on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 1 Giselle was a contestant on the first season of America’s Next Top Model. She, along with fellow model Tessa, were the only models of the cycle who were not part of the pool of 20 semi-finalists (they were scouted for and joined the cast after a separate audition).During the fifth week of Cycle 1, both Giselle and fellow finalist Ebony fell into the bottom 2. Giselle was spared as Ebony was sent home, but her performance the following week betrayed her lack of confidence. Her photos with 2003 NFL Rookie of the Year Clinton Portis were not impressive enough to convince the judges to keep her, and so she became the fifth finalist to be cut from the show. Tyra said it was her lack of confidence that hindered her performance. Source
  POST-TOP MODEL After her season aired, Giselle appeared in SWITCH magazine and modeled for the brand Simply Fashion. Giselle was also a model on Deal or No Deal, has hosted segments on the Tyra Banks Show, Fox Sport's Net's "54321", and has appeared on TV shows such as Chuck, The Bold and The Beautiful, the short “Black?”, and has attended The 18th Annual Soul Train Music Awards.

These days, according to her LinkedIn, she works as an Account Executive at HireTalent Executive Search, Temporary Staffing, Recruiting & SOW and is the founder of GLS Enterprises LLC, as well as the CEO of Kiss the Planet. She is currently listed as a model on the Trade Show Models (TSM) agency website.
  Name: Kesse Wallace Placed: 5th Age: 35 First Call Outs: 1 Bottom 2: 2 Twitter Followers: N/A Instagram Followers: N/A Kesse Wallace on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 1 During the sixth week, the show flew Kesse and the other remaining Top Model finalists to Paris, where they were asked to pose with a male model wearing only lingerie. The challenge allowed a number of Parisian designers to view the models, and although all of them tried their best to produce spectacular pictures, the judges felt that Kesse did not possess enough desire to advance in the competition. Consequently, Kesse became the sixth finalist to be eliminated. Source
  POST-TOP MODEL As of late, Kesse has been keeping a relatively low profile. Since appearing on the show, Kesse has gone on to work under the management of Gilla Roos (but closed in 2009). Her runway projects include Yeohlee Teng Fall 2005/Spring 2006, Renee Larc for Milan and Francis Hendy. Kesse has also graced the pages of King Magazine and Complex Magazine and has appeared in a Church’s Chicken television commercial. She has also appeared in King Magazine and in Complex Magazine.
  Name: Robin Manning Placed: 4th Age: 41 First Call Outs: 0 Bottom 2: 1 Twitter Followers: 208 (@Robbyne) Instagram Followers: 554 (@robbynemanning) Robin Manning on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 1 Being a Devout Christian like her fellow finalist Shannon Stewart, Robin often criticized the other girls when she felt that they were doing something immoral. She was extremely affected when openly gay model Ebony brought her partner to the house. On the seventh week, the challenge was to pose nude for a jewelry advertisement. She, along with Shannon, refused to participate, saying that it was against her morals. Consequently, she was eliminated from the show, becoming the seventh contestant to be cut. Source
  POST-TOP MODEL Robin, who now goes by the name Robbyne, has kept a relatively low profile since the show. She was the only contestant whose photos were not included in the Stuff Magazine shoot featured during the third episode (even though Tessa, the first contestant eliminated, was included in the issue). After her appearance on the show, Robin went on to do a Baby Phat fashion show with Elyse and Kesse. She was featured in the July 2003 issue of the TV Guide, on the cover of the 2003 Holiday Issue of Grace, as well as appear next to Janice Dickinson in an issue of O. She has also appeared in the popular soap, The Young and the Restless, and the films, Without You and Holla. Robin is pursuing an acting career and has been in two movies. She did some church-related print work and some test shots, as well as a pictorial for Especially Yours, but is not currently with an agency. Robin’s name was once again brought to the attention in the media in 2014 when Dominic Jeffries (together with his 6 year old sister) went missing from Manning’s home. Robin is the child’s legal guardian, but it is not certain why (Dominic’s mother and Robin know each other from pre-school).
  Name: Elyse Sewell Placed: 3rd Age: 35 First Call Outs: 2 Bottom 2: 2 Twitter Followers: N/A Instagram Followers: 1,031 (@_elysesewell) Elyse Sewell on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 1 Sewell's was a contestant on the first cycle of America's Next Top Model. She was known on the show as the "edgy pre-med student". She placed third, after Adrianne Curry and Shannon Stewart. She was eliminated due to the fact that her intelligence came across as “derogatory”, despite her high fashion look. Her infamous confessional clip from the show, in which she expressed a profanity-laden rant against the people on the show, earned her 16th place on E!'s Most Outrageous TV Moments in 2005. She attributes this outburst to the unusual requirement on the show to voice one's private thoughts and to soliloquize in a "confessional booth".
  POST-TOP MODEL Elyse is probably the most successful girl out of all the contestants on Cycle 1. As a model, Elyse has been incredibly successful, especially in Asia where she has had print advertisements for Giordano, Chanel and Chow Sang Sang Jewelry and appeared on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Hong Kong. Sewell’s first book, Beauty and The Biz: The International Adventures of America's Third-to-Next Top Model, based in part on her LiveJournal Weblog, was published in Hong Kong in 2006. She appeared in multiple book signings across Hong Kong. She has been featured in advertisements for brands such as Azona, Chow Sang Sang, Dao, Darquer, DTC Diamonds, Flair by Joc, Giordano, iMaroon, Mae Von, Motorola, Paule Ka, Sa Sa CyberColors, and Staccato.
  Overseas, Elyse has been signed with Zucca Tokyo, ZEM Osaka, Mannequin Singapore, Model Genesis Hong Kong, Chadwicks Sydney, Eye For I Milan, Dream Models Hong Kong and Elite Santiago. Locally, Elyse has also been signed with Wilhelmina West Models, M4 Models, Q6 Models Portland, Model One (Hong Kong), Studio KLRP Paris, Seattle’s Model Guild, M4 Hamburg, Good Fashion Shenzhen and Model 1.
  Elyse dated Martin Crandall of the Shins until January 2008, when he allegedly assaulted her in a Sacramento hotel. Both Crandall and Elyse were charged with felony domestic assault, though their cases were later dismissed. Previously, Elyse told the Singapore Straits Times in an interview that she had dumped her boyfriend because he cheated on her while she was working in Japan, though they reconciled shortly afterwards. She’s not active on social media, and only has an instagram (which was last updated in 2015). A facebook page pops up if you search her name on facebook, however, I’m not sure if she runs it or if it is a fan account. She also participated in a Reddit AMA where she spoke about her experiences on the show.
  Name: Shannon Ratcliff, née Stewart Placed: 2nd (Cycle 1)/6th (Cycle 17) Age: 33 First Call Outs: 3 (Cycle 1)/0 (Cycle 17) Bottom 2: 2 (Cycle 1)/2 (Cycle 17) Twitter Followers: 17.3k (@ShannonStewart1) Instagram Followers: 12.5k (@shannonstewartratcliff) Shannon Stewart on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 1 Stewart competed on the first season of America's Next Top Model. In the first week of competition, Shannon landed in the bottom two and if she hadn't won that week's challenge, she would have been eliminated. However, the following two weeks Shannon received two consecutive first call-outs, and performed consistently in the following weeks. But, in the semi-finals during a nude photoshoot in Paris, Shannon and fellow contestant Robin Manning caused controversy when they refused to take part in the photoshoot because of their Christian faith. However, this did not hinder Stewart's progression in the competition finishing second overall to Adrianne Curry. Source.
  Shannon later appeared during a fashion show during the show’s 7th season, in the 8th cycle of the show as a guest for one of the photo shoots, and was also the only contestant from Cycle 1 to be invited to participate in the All Star cycle.
  ANTM CYCLE 17 In 2011, Shannon was invited back to participate in the first All-Star edition of the show, together with several other returning models from the different seasons. Stewart placed 6th overall in the All-Star competition after confusing the judges for refusing to wear lingerie that looked like a bathing suit while allowing herself to be photographed in a skimpier bathing suit in a previous week. She was the only model in the top 6 to have not won best photo.
  POST-TOP MODEL Since America’s Next Top Model, Shannon has modeled for Harmony Bell Boutique, Nuj Novakhett, Macy’s, Dillard’s, Sephora, Bakers Shoes, Speedo, and Allyson Smith Jewelry.

2017.07.10 08:19 autotldr Two Australian banks just successfully used blockchain on commercial property deals

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 64%. (I'm a bot)
Two major Australian banks have successfully used blockchain, instead of paper, for bank guarantees on commercial property leasing.
Data61, a project of Australia's peak science organisation, the CSIRO, has been investigating how blockchain technology could be adopted in Australia to deliver productivity benefits.
The partners in the latest bank trial today released a whitepaper detailing how the solution worked and how it could be used in other situations relying on bank guarantees.
Nigel Dobson, the ANZ's general manager wholesale digital, says the bank has been keen to avoid the hype surrounding blockchain and instead has focused on the practical.
At IBM, Dr Joanna Batstone, director of IBM Research Australia, says she believes blockchain can potentially drive productivity across all Australian industries.
This blockchain trial used Distributed Ledger Technology powered by Hyperledger Fabric V1.0, a blockchain framework and one of the Hyperledger projects hosted by The Linux Foundation.

2017.06.24 10:35 autotldr UK Man who tried to import childlike sex doll from Hong Kong is jailed

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 55%. (I'm a bot)
A man who tried to import a childlike sex doll has been jailed in what is thought to be one of the first prosecutions of its kind in the UK. Andrew Dobson, 49, was sentenced at Chester crown court on Friday to two years and eight months behind bars after pleading guilty to importing an indecent object, two counts of making indecent images of children and one count of possessing indecent images of children.
Border Force officers, acting under the direction of the fast parcel joint border intelligence unit, identified a parcel labelled as a mannequin, but which was found to contain an obscene childlike doll.
During his interview, Dobson admitted buying the doll to use for sex and for his own sexual gratification.
"DC Andy Kent, of Cheshire constabulary's paedophile and cyber-investigation unit, said:"Knowing child sex dolls exist and are available for sex offenders to buy is sickening.
"This conviction is the first of its kind for Cheshire. Cases like these are also very rare across the country. However, I want to make it clear that importing a child sex doll is a criminal offence."
"The importation of dolls like this is a new phenomenon and Dobson is one of the first people sentenced in the UK in relation to such an item. Working closely with law enforcement partners, Border Force is determined to bring those involved in this type of offence to justice."

2017.03.22 13:38 URMC_Antibiotics Science AMA Series: We’re Ghinwa Dumyati, professor of Infectious Diseases and Erica Dobson, Infectious Diseases Clinical Pharmacist at the University of Rochester Medical Center in Rochester, New York. We are here to talk about antibiotics – the good, the bad and what the future holds. AMA!

Hi Reddit!
I’m Ghinwa Dumyati, M.D., professor of Infectious Diseases at the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) and director of the communicable diseases surveillance and prevention program at URMC’s Center for Community Health. For the past five years I’ve led the Rochester Patient Safety Collaborative, a citywide effort that has reduced Clostridium difficile (C. diff) infections at four local hospitals by more than 30 percent. An important part of reducing C. diff, which can cause life-threatening diarrhea and inflammation of the colon, is reducing the inappropriate use of antibiotics. We worked with physicians, nurses, pharmacists and others to improve how antibiotics are prescribed. With a grant from New York State, I’m also working to reduce the use of unnecessary antibiotics in nursing home patients, who are at high risk for C. diff. My next frontier, in collaboration with Erica Dobson, is curbing the overprescribing of antibiotics in the outpatient setting – doctor’s offices, dentist offices, emergency departments and urgent care clinics.
Hi Reddit! I’m Erica Dobson, Pharm.D., an Infectious Diseases Clinical Pharmacist at the University of Rochester Medical Center. I’m a board certified pharmacotherapy specialist (BCPS) and an American Academy of HIV Medicine HIV-certified pharmacist (AAHIVP). I work with health care providers to ensure patients get the most appropriate antibiotic for their condition and take the antibiotic for the right amount of time. I’m partnering with Dr. Dumyati to bring these efforts into the community. Antibiotics are lifesaving medications, but inappropriate use leads to antibiotic resistance, one of the world’s most pressing health threats. If we don’t address this problem now, we will face a future in which bacterial diseases are untreatable and can be fatal. We’re here to answer questions about antibiotics, including: why they are important; what they should and shouldn’t be used for; how we can curb the use of inappropriate antibiotics and why it’s important to curb the use; what the future looks like if we fail to use these medicines judiciously; and more.
We’ll start answering questions at 2 pm. Ask us anything!

2016.10.22 02:23 EZ_does_it Who Wrote This? Or can anyone can confirm the Author is James Dobson?

I notice this has been circulation around FB, message boards, and various blogs. Sometimes it's been credited to James Dobson, sometime it's been credited to just "A Pastor". Anyone have any idea who was the original author.
Written by Dr. James Dobson, a Christian pastor.
When I first heard that Trump (DT) was entering the race last year, I told my wife that perhaps it was a good thing for the party and America. I knew that he was not a “saint,” but I thought that he would be like a bull in a China shop. He is a disrupter and I believe America could use a fresh thinker especially in the political arena. I didn’t think he would get the nomination, but that he would shake up politics as usual. I was correct on the shaking up! Lance Wallnau likens him to a biblical Cyrus. Someone who is dynamically used of God even though not perceived by many as a God follower. God has used many people in history that I would probably not like or agree with. I’m not sure I would have liked all the disciples, or David, or Moses. Somehow, God did not seem compelled to consult with me on His choices! I have always admired Winston Churchill. He is seen as one of the greatest national leaders in the 20th century. Last year, I had the privilege of going through the War Museum in London. Winston is a key feature. His life is controversial. He was not always celebrated as a great leader. He was a bombastic, cigar smoking, at times crude, even misogynistic leader. It is alleged that he told off color stories to his children before bedtime! A woman once told him he was disgustingly drunk. His response was “My dear, you are disgustingly ugly, but tomorrow I shall be sober and you will still be ugly!” There are many websites that discuss the outlandish comments and activities of this great world leader. But, he had exactly what was needed to stop Hitler at the Channel, to rouse a nation to never give up and to partner with America to find final victory in Europe. You probably wouldn’t want him as your pastor, maybe not even your father, but he was the right leader for that moment in England’s history. Such a brazen man that would go up to the roof of his quarters in central London and smoke cigars as Hitler’s air force bombed all around him. I’m not sure I would have voted for him…. but he was the right man! I think it would be awesome to have a righteous leader, one that understood the intricacies of the economy, health care, defense, immigration, with great sensitivity to religious institutions, a heart for the poor, a vision for the future. If that leader was a praying person, formidable in the word of God and loved the local church, I would rejoice! I do not think that is the choice we will have in November. Instead….we will look for someone who is imperfect, yet will fit the times we are living in. Particularly, that ‘whoever’ we vote for, will be someone who might possibly have the opportunity to appoint up to three Supreme Court justices. That could radically shape our culture in America for the next 30 years. The America of our grandchildren could be very different….and that may not be good. We cannot stand on the sidelines. A non-vote is a passive vote for a direction we may very well regret. So…is Donald Trump good for America? I honestly believe that he has been already. He has shaken the political system. Do his comments offend me? At times! Do I agree with all he says? Not at all! But could he be a “Cyrus” being raised up by God to preserve America? Nobody liked Gen. Patton, but he sure WAS an instrument of the United States for the right things. This I know. I will vote for the best chance for America. I will pray for our leaders as I have already. In the end – God will continue to be my source and my hope. I do believe that God has had a hand in America’s history. I hope and pray that He will also have a saving hand in America’s future.

2016.10.13 08:29 Cortcoop Domestic violence. Protective orders. Arizona dad with 50/50 custody and zero child support!? How?

In order to fully appreciate what has been going on for over five years I have to go back about eight years ago when I was told by Michelle ( mother of our 3 daughters) and her sisters that their mother's new boyfriend was allegedly a PEDOPHILE. Me being a father of three young ladies acted accordingly stating that because I don't know him and because both Michelle and her sisters lead me to believe this man was an alleged pedophile, this man is to be kept away from children and my children away from him. This man knowing I felt this way never once in ten years approached me to say different and we've shaken hands and spoken on many occasion. I've no issue with him except the claim he knows has been made about him by others and his inaction to address that claim with me. That being said I feel he either feels no need to defend his honor or he simply does not mind what I or anyone else involved thinks of him. I actually admire that and I've no problem either way so long as he is not in close proximity to my children without me there OR with me there as my focus is for my children, not glancing every five minutes in the direction of an alleged pedophile at my kid's birthday party. It's just a unnecessary addition to an otherwise joyous occasion. He is of no relation to my children and came into the lives of Michelle's family well after my children were born and raised so he has not played nor plays any significant role in their lives as a relative. He is simply their grandmother's boyfriend. Not even married to her. This ties into why there has been an ongoing conflict of interest between Michelle and myself. The next bit of information came to me by way of Michelle as well stating years ago that her mother had been diagnosed with a terminal illness and given a certain amount of years to live as I was told. Even before this knowledge, It had been a constant battle every year leading up to 7/21/2011(A significant date to be explained later.) as Michelle's mother refused to go anywhere without her boyfriend (the alleged pedophile) present. Which made birthdays a problem between mom and dad. I have told them both time and time again that I have no qualm with the children's grandmother visiting them on ANY day..especially their birthdays. My only request is to respect my wish as a father of three young ladies and NOT have the man who I've been told is an alleged pedophile attend their birthdays or be there while the children's grandmother is visiting. I simply REFUSE to let an alleged pedophile with no ambition to address whether he is or not to engage with my three young daughters. Since the children's grandmother was unwilling to have him drop her off and go about his business until she's ready to go, she had not shown up to many of the girl's birthdays. Now I MUST point out that something very traumatic occurred in the months leading UP to July 21st 2011 and again ON July 21st 2011. I want to say four or five months prior to July 21st the family puppy bit my daughter on her lip. I was not at home. I was at work delivering auto parts in North Phoenix our home was in Mesa. I was called by a panic stricken Michelle, who does not have a license and does not drive screaming into the phone that, "The dog just bit Desi (Desiree) in the FACE!""OH MY GOD! “You have to get back now there’s so much blood I don’t know what to do! She’s bleeding everywhere!" She was panicked and it was taking all of me to remain calm myself in an effort to calm her. It did not work. I had to resort to screaming over her to call an ambulance as I was too far away and she needed to get Dee to the hospital right NOW! She finally broke the panic. Hung up the phone and I would assume she called the Paramedics. So I met family at the hospital. Turns out my daughter had been putting her face up to the pup's face. (A big NO NO!!). The truth is, she simply adored the pup and through showing her affection unintentionally put herself in harms way by hugging the pup too close and was bit in the lip. She had a great surgeon who put stitches in and she was doing great. I had the tough conversation every parent must eventually have with a child when the safety of their family must take precedence over a family pet. I reiterated the rules we must abide by to ensure we don't handle our pets unsafely. I let my daughter know the risk of our pet being put to sleep if the pet were found to be too high a threat to our family and/or others or a habitual biter. Of course the thought of losing the pup was a burden on my child and she pleaded with me not to get rid of the pup. I simply told her this was an incident that could have been avoided by abiding by the rules, and that said, I let her keep the pup with her promise to be mindful of her interactions with the puppy and the knowledge that if this were to happen again we would more than likely HAVE to euthanize the pup. From that panic filled afternoon up until the date of July 21 2011, the days in the home were hectic. The panic that I saw that day left me with serious doubts as to the welfare of my children in situations like these under the watch of their mother. An already taxing relationship became even more so. Arguments were more common. Then, on the day of July 21st 2011 the worst thing that could have happened, happened. My daughter, again was bit in the lip, (the exact same spot mind you) by the same family pup. Caused by the same lack of adherence to the rules of having the family pup. Keep your face out of the pups face. This time I was there. I cleaned her wound best I could with water then put a cloth on the wound and had my daughter keep pressure applied as I drove her to the Emergency room. Upon arriving I was told to sign intake paperwork, easy enough to do when you are in the ER for the flu or for a bruised knee. My daughter stood by bleeding profusely as I was told to fill out paperwork. I asked the attendant if she could send my daughter to the back were two nurses were looking on. My child is of a sensitive nature. She is very susceptible to headaches and dizziness due to her glasses. She was a very weak child when born and though she has grown up healthy she still is more fragile than her siblings. For THAT reason alone I was fearful she may pass out or go into shock. I INSISTED that while I fill out the paperwork she allow my child to go to the nurses in waiting. Being told yet again to fill out the paperwork I then demanded someone take my child back to the nurses less than ten feet away. At this point I was yelling and pleading at the same time. A doctor who overheard came out from a corridor and simply stated, "Call security. Him, OUT!" At that point I was livid and walked out the hospital's emergency room of my own accord. I was surrounded by six security guards and a police officer in the parking lot. I was later informed by Michelle over the phone that CPS was somehow involved. My assumption was the doctor called them. Then I was informed by Michelle that there was now an order of protection placed on me as well. I was not allowed to see or even SPEAK to my child that I had to leave at the hospital or my other two daughters for a period of twenty days only to be allowed to phone after such time passed. The case never even made it court. It was dismissed by a judge as soon as the contents were read. Regardless of the outcome.. I had to spend thirty days away from my children. Thirty days out of my home. Thirty days of not having a stable place to rest, and of course my oldest and youngest daughters birthdays occurred within the thirty days following.
This is were I believe Michelle realized a protective order, regardless of the validity or outcome, will legally and quite effectively remove me from my home for a period of at least 30 days in the period of which both my oldest and youngest have their birthdays allowing Michelle to invite her mother and her mothers boyfriend to attend without question in my absence. I say this because EVERY OTHER YEAR ON OR WITHIN 24 HOURS OF THE SAME DAY since July 21st 2011, a protective order has been filed against me by Michelle and the dates are as follows. July 21 2013 and two years later July 22 2015. I do NOT believe this to be coincidental. In the months prior to this most recent protective order, four events had taken place in succession. The FIRST involved my youngest daughter Breanna. She had a young friend from school, a female who's parents are in a same sex relationship between two women. From what I've been told the two women adopted the child as an infant and lovingly raised her into a young lady. I had met them both on occasion and found them to be pleasant individuals. One Friday afternoon Breanna's school friend asked if she could come to our home and spend the night. Personally I see nothing wrong with girls or boys spending the night at MY house as long as just like with any other young company and any other sleep over night with family OR friends as was done with BOTH my oldest children for years, the children's doors remain OPEN and they are supervised until they are all SOUND asleep. I at this time had been working nights starting at 730pm. Knowing Michelle would most likely turn in early, as she usually does, I was somewhat worried that the two girls visitation would NOT get the proper supervision if Michelle fell asleep. I argued the point with her that boy or girl if I feel they will not be supervised I don't want to run the risk of something happening without a parent's knowledge. There were no rebuttals from Michelle, instead I was threatened with a call to the police for "hindering her duties as a parent" as I recall, and called a "homophobic jerk." At this point I was already looking at being late for work. With the ridiculous threat and the need to get to work, I simply voiced my disgust with Michelle and her lack of understanding and went to work. That night nothing happened to my knowledge. After my shift was over I returned home to find the kids sleep, doors open. The next weekend Breanna's schoolmate asked if my daughter could now spend the night at her parents home. I was skeptical and again voiced my opinion stating how about we wait a week so we can hang out together. Get a chance for the parents to really know each other. My opinion was met with the same statement as before and, as before I relented and went to work. Again, as far as I KNOW, nothing out of the ordinary transpired and the kids had proper supervision. The third weekend in a row now and Breanna's schoolmate once again wants to spend the night at our home. Once again I’m voicing my opinion. Never once in all of their lives have the children spent the night or had some one spend the night every Friday for three weeks in a row. Period. Family time and events didn’t leave successive Fridays open like that. The same scenario played itself out as before. My opinions and her threats. My heading to work, defeated. Only this time there was no route for me at work. Zero medications to deliver on my route. I was sent home with pay. I was paid for the night though I didn’t have to work so I headed home after getting some dinner. My job started at 730 pm. We prepped and normally left for our routes by 830 pm. This of course was Friday night. By 830 I knew I had no route and could go home. So I was home from work this Friday by 845 - 900pm. When I returned home that Friday I walked into my home and the first thing that struck me was that Michelle’s door was closed and she was sleeping. My other daughters, Desiree and Alyssa's doors were open as usual, and they were also sleep. However, the door to my 11 year old at the time was shut. I walked to her door, opened it a little ways and saw my 11 year old and her friend from school sitting under a heavy blanket facing each other. I figured they were looking at comics or something under the blanket with a flashlight as kids tend to do. As I opened the door fully the hinges squealed. At that moment my daughter bolted from under the covers came straight to me and looked up at me in the door way. The other child, her friend from school simply continued to sit under the blanket not moving. I thought that was odd. I asked my daughter, what are you guys doing? She answered, nothing Dad. Her friend still remained poised under that blanket. I asked again, with the full intent of getting a truthful response. What are you two up to? My eleven year old daughter for whom I've fought hard and gone through much to protect her from what ever I can tucked her chin and said to me, "We were kissing Dad ". That pretty much brought back the Friday night that I was at work and the Friday night my child spent at her friend's parent's home and I got sick to my stomach. I felt completely awful because I had no idea how far this had gone and no idea how it was going to affect my 11 year old and truly no idea how a mother could allow this to happen right under her nose by not properly supervising our youngest child. Worst was to think what may have happened that I may never know. Michelle seeing that HER actions lead to her 11 year old, at the time being more sexually active than her 15 year old sister, who at that point and time had yet to even kiss a boy! The most unfortunate thing about it all was how my youngest daughter took it. I spoke with her and let her know I was there for her and that these things are part of growing up. Nothing to be ashamed of. My role though is to guide you so you learn certain things in their given time, certain things you should encounter at a more mature age. That’s how I talk to my kids. With me trying to convince her mom to sit down and talk to her about it and her mom not taking responsibility for her actions, time was passing, work had to continue and the rift between Michelle and myself widening each day all the way up to the order of protection, my daughter had little in the way of parental guidance and support. I talked with my child, sure, but saw Michelle did not want to take responsibility for and speak to our child about what had occurred. It truly could have been avoided with a little caution and the proper supervision. The bitterness in Michelle amplified. I had spoken with my daughter after that and always asked her if her Mother had yet sat her down and talked to her about what happened. To this DAY my child says "No, she hasn’t" The SECOND event involved my middle daughter Desiree who was suffering from what seemed to be a heatstroke in the kitchen. She had told me as we were talking "Dad. I can't see, " I could hear the fear in her voice, but I could also tell she was on the verge of collapse and I didn’t want her to pass out. At that moment Michelle had just come through the door getting home from work and saw how Desiree looked and came to her side. She started to pull Desiree to her, to hug her and let her lean on her. I totally understood her need to comfort our child, however I needed to keep Desiree awake long enough to ascertain as much as I could as fast as I could about what was happening to her. I was asking my daughter what she felt. She was answering weakly. She said "I can't see.." and visibly getting weaker by the second. Michelle, again panicking is yelling to put Desiree in the car that's been sitting in the heat for two hours or so and attempt to navigate the neighborhood, a minimum of three stop lights and rush hour traffic to get her to the ER. I know that trip is going to run three minutes at least if we don't make every light. I also know that three minutes in a heatstroke can permanently damage the brain. There was no way I was putting my overheating kid into a piping hot car with crappy a/c and risk being stuck in rush hour traffic while she burns up inside. I told Michelle she needed to step aside and call the ambulance. She said "No we need to put her in the car and GO!" I at this point was thinking my kid must be having a heat stroke and all that mattered at that moment was cooling her down. I told Michelle, "We need to put her in some cool water. The shower, turn it on to half and half get her clothes off and get her in there!" To this Michelle said "No, I’m calling the police! You're interfering with my duties as a parent!" At this point and time Michelle is on the phone and my daughter is beginning to droop into my hands, I’m steadying her so she stays as awake as possible, I got angry then. I yelled at Michelle saying, " Take her into the shower! Ill call the ambulance just get her in the shower. With that Michelle ran out the front door on the phone. Seeing Michelle was not coming back in I had to take my daughter to the bathroom and put her in the shower. When Michelle came back in I asked if she had called the paramedics, she did not answer me but did go into the bathroom with my daughter. About two minutes later Police showed up. That made it clear to me that Michelle had called the POLICE before she called Paramedics, and what I believe is that the dispatcher actually called the Paramedics as Michelle told her why the Police were necessary. Upon their arrival the Police officers asked me what was going on and as I was explaining, the paramedics also pulled up. At that point in time Desiree was out of the shower and sitting on the bed next to Michelle. The paramedics took my daughters vitals and to my great relief she was fine across the board. 100%. The paramedic overheard me speaking to the officers and said it was a wise move to put her in the shower but warned me to NEVER use cold water as it could seriously shock the nervous system in these situations. He also said putting her in a hot car would have been too risky. The police seeing that there was no reason for them to stick around as everyone was ok, left. With them the paramedics also left the home. The way Michelle acts when confronted with situations that require a cool head is not acceptable. She panics and does not make wise choices in the heat of the moment. But the worst part is she does not wish to recognize this. I said there were four events that took place leading up to this most recent of protective orders. The third event saw my youngest and oldest doing something at the pool I strictly forbid. I do NOT allow my children to dive into the shallow end of the pool, for their sake. However I also do not allow them to JUMP into the shallow end and that is for the sake of others. I don't want a young child swimming underwater to be landed on from above and perhaps driven into the bottom of the shallow. The combination of the initial shock of being landed on, leading to an involuntary gasp of surprise may introduce water into the lungs risking drowning, a scenario I'd rather not see and one easily avoided with an ounce of prevention. In my absence. The family at the pool and kids are being allowed to jump into the shallows. Kids being kids of course will have their fun as they can. So with Michelle's permission my youngest and oldest jumped into the shallow end of the pool hand in hand. I get a call from Michelle telling me to get to the hospital quick, "Alyssa has hurt herself badly" On the way there Michelle is on the phone explaining to me what the doctor is saying must be done. Somehow, my oldest daughter from simply jumping into the shallow end of the pool had suffered a cut to the bottom of her right foot, a sprained right ankle and a puncture wound on the TOP of her right foot requiring no less than six stitches. When I asked how in the world that happened jumping into a pool of water. Michelle replied "I don't know. I saw all the blood, I panicked grabbed her out the pool, put her in the neighbors car and got a ride up to the hospital." I asked " You check the pool!?...didn’t someone look in there to find what my have caused such serious damage!?" Michelle only responded "Look I’m not trying to hear your mouth right now." And hung up. I called Michelle back and I asked to speak to my daughter as I’m driving to the hospital, Michelle told me, " She doesn’t want to speak to you or hear your yelling!"
At that point I had reached the hospital and was walked into my child's room there. I saw the stitches and the wrapped ankle. I asked my daughter if she was ok, she said yea Dad. I asked, "what happened and how did so much damage come from jumping into a pool full of water?” She said "I don't know Dad, We jumped in and I just felt pain and rolled my ankle." I asked her what part of the pool was it?" Michelle at this point yells out "can someone get security please, he needs to leave!", then to me, “Nobody wants to hear your yelling and screaming and then she resumed calling for security.” I wasn’t screaming or yelling. She simply blurted it out to stop my kid from answering my question. At that point I had my fill of this woman's lack of respect for even the simplest of safety rules that I, as a concerned, father have put in place to safe guard my kids in day to day life and as they have fun. It took its toll that day. That day, things officially had gone too far for me. I could no longer hold my tongue. In just as many words I told her "you know what, Fk you! You make me sick! You want to act like I'm not supposed to be a concerned father with some questions about how my daughter got hurt so badly Fk you then. Call security bitch, tell THEM to take your non driving no license having ass home,. YOU find yourself a way home I'm gone!" With that I walked out of the hospital. When I left the hospital I got on the phone with the Dobson Ranch Community Pool. I told them what had transpired less than a hour ago and asked them if they found anything that could have possibly done so much damage to my child's foot. The response was "We just finished cleaning the pool sir and we found nothing." Now I'm a Father who's child has sustained serious injuries, whose partner is refusing to divulge any information pertaining to what has happened and now I'm being told that "NOTHING" was found in the pool that had JUST been cleaned less than an hour after my kid was hurt. I'm not the smartest guy in the world but I'm pretty sure the only way to sustain multiple injuries like my daughters did was by landing on a half broken glass bottle. She jumped in the pool her foot landed on the leading edge of the bottle. The pain from the initial cut made her roll her ankle. When she did that the broken bottle rolled over and into the top of her foot and punctured it from above. I'm not the smartest guy in the world but I'm pretty sure when they cleaned the pool and saw they may be responsible for no small amount of negligence, all evidence was taken from the pool and discarded. Again the lack of respect for my wishes as a concerned father from Michelle, the panic from Michelle in situations that require a cool head and the unwise decision making of Michelle had directly and negatively impacted the outcome of a situation regarding the most precious beings in my life.
I had two jobs at the time, one night, one day. The night job I had for two years. The other was more recent, no more than a month into it. I could afford to save for a month, get a house or an apartment of my own, leave her one of the two vehicles I drove and give her enough money for whatever might arise unexpectedly. I told her I was saving to move out.
That’s when the police calls for no good reasons started happening again. First it was.."he's physically abusive!" The police show up. Look everyone over, questioned me, Mom and my children and come to the conclusion that this incident was not true. I was told, "Since she’s a little riled up, why don't you just go spend the night somewhere and come back tomorrow?" I didn't like it, but I followed the officers advice. Another call to the police a few days later happened IN MY ABSENCE where the officer had my daughter Desiree call me. She told me " Dad..the cops are here..they want you to come home." Of course I asked why. She replied, he says that he needs to talk to you" I was in Phoenix just pulling up to my chiropractic visit, I had been rear-ended in may that year and saw the chiro two to three times a week. I told my daughter to tell the officer I would be awhile getting home, an hour with traffic. She replied, "He said he'll wait." When I arrived home two police officers were standing out front of my home. One officer spoke and said "come follow me down the side walk a ways. I want to tell you something without her (meaning Mom) hearing. We walked down the path a bit and then he said to me, " I had to tell your daughter (meaning Desiree) to get in the house or I was going throw her in juvenile hall.!" I asked why. All of my children are well behaved and respectful, straight A students, orchestra members each playing their instrument of choice. They should never be in any situation where they are being disrespectful period, lead alone to an officer of the law! The officers response to my question was equally surprising. He said, " Your daughter was out here disrespecting everybody including me in defense of YOU!" He continued stating, "whoever she is (meaning Michelle) your ex, your wife or whoever she is, she's trying to throw you under the bus." The officer said to me, "She tried playing some recording of something that I guess was to convince me you were being verbally abusive." Then the officer said something that would surprise me more than anything that had taken place thus far. He told me, "You need to file for an injunction against harassment, and you need to file it TOMORROW!" He then told me I could return to my home and there was no need for me to go anywhere. So that night before the officer left Michelle said "If he isn’t going then I will!", and took some of her belongings and left to the neighbors home. I entered my home began speaking to my children trying to ascertain what took place in my absence. At that time Michelle walks in and just kind of stands near the back of the couch close to the door. It seemed strange but I didn’t realize at the time why. She had come back because she knew I was angry over her calling the cops yet again for NOTHING and this time getting my child involved to the point an officer of the law had to threaten my daughter with juvenile hall! So I’m livid, angry, enraged i am pissed off to the max. Michelle quietly recorded me without my knowledge of course. The rest of the night is uneventful. So I wake up early Monday morning and I head on down to the Mesa Municipal Court House on first avenue and Mesa Dr. I wait outside patiently for the court to open. I go in through the metal detectors get my number see a judge to explain what’s been going on. When he heard about the protective orders and saw the dates, 7/21/2011, 7/21/2013 & 7/22/2015, instead of setting a case out for thirty days as would seem normal to me he told me, " You two are coming in here TODAY, if not today in TEN days, were going to get to the bottom of this!" I told him, "Sir I appreciate that but I know she’s going to be filing a protective order on me regardless and I’m working. If I get tossed out of my home I will not have the means to properly function in my employment. I’ve been through it as you can see every other year for the past five years. His response was uplifting, he said, "If she steps into this court house, in this court room, I will tell her what I’m telling you. “TEN DAYS!" He goes on to say, "and if she goes to another court room in this building I’m leaving notes for any judge to see that she is NOT to be granted a protective and to be directed back here in ten days." I went home, sure that in ten days time we would finally get this chapter out of our lives by way of the truth being revealed. It did not happen that way. Michelle did indeed file a protective order. To my surprise it was accepted. I was yet again escorted by police away from home and my children that very evening. When my court date came I was told Michelle had requested a continuation. It too was granted. It also switched judges. About eight to ten days later when I finally thought id get my day in court, I was no longer In front of the judge who told me he would be getting to the bottom of this. Instead I was now in front of the judge who even after reading the notes left by the judge I had seen, STILL granted Michelle her protective order. I began to speak on the facts and events which lead to me filing an injunction against harassment. I was not even allowed to finish. I was told that Michelle’s protective order was filed first and therefore trumped my filing. Thoroughly confused and very exasperated I sat there in disbelief at what was happening. I previously stated that on the night Michelle made this secret recording I was angry, enraged and thoroughly pissed off. Michelle told the judge "He is physically and verbally abusive and I recorded him as he is berating me and verbally abusing me" The judge asked her to play the recording and they hooked her phone up to the court room speakers and pressed play. I did not object, I knew EXACTLY what I had said, how I said it and most importantly WHY I was saying it. The recording ended. The judge said, and I QUOTE verbatim, "Well he's not PHYSICALLY abusive, he's not VERBALLY abusive, but he is kind of loud.' She granted the continuing order of protection. Extended it one hundred days. I didn’t see nor speak to my daughters for over 30 days as Michelle had included ALL of my children as well. A father of 17 years, taken from his home and kids because he was “kind of loud” in defense of his kid who almost got arrested because her mom was lying?.....!!(??) My jaw is on the floor right now. I told the judge I wasn’t going to stand for this, my children told MOM they were not going to stand for this. In a month we were back in court with Mom modifying her OWN protective order. All 3 of the children were excluded. The SAME judge asked Michelle why she was removing the children. Michelle did not reply, just looked down. And it was done. All of my rights as a father to my children were restored. A week or two later, we attend mediation. In which we agree to 50/50 custody and zero child support. WHY WOULD SHE AGREE TO THAT IF I WAS ABUSIVE!? Because I was not. My children told her if she wasn’t going to be fair they would speak in court on the truth.
Ok so, currently have 50/50 custody of my kids and zero child support. This is court ordered. However, We agreed to discuss dates within a month. It didn’t happen. It had been over eight months and their mother had refused to set dates and would not let me have my fair uninterrupted parental time. She cites verbal abuse as her reasoning when in fact the only reason I even argued with her is because she would NOT relinquish control to allow my time with my kids . It has been a constant struggle to visit with my children. She interferes with phone calls, visits which are rare and frequently records the backlash from myself and kids telling her to just leave us be for ten minutes. Its beyond bad. She now wants 100% custody, Supervised visitation and child support!. I picked my kids up from school and took them home each day, as she doesn’t drive. ( 37 years old and never had a license. Never drove a family car.) Yet she’s not allowed them to come with me more than five times in the past 8 months or more. My children all want me to have 100% custody because they know I would be fair, for their benefit, they know I care for their well being and we all are facing court as their mom wants to file for full custody, supervised visitation and child support. Since being kicked out of my home I had been struggling to save to move into my own home which without the moms actions I could have easily done. My children and I have been fighting all year long to get a fair and clear time for our visitation but she refuses. Its simply out of spite because she has provided way too much evidence by her interfering with and directly violating a court order to allow her to get away with it. I however am left in a tenuous situation by her actions. I am at this time facing eviction and am struggling each day to maintain, and she is now using this time to all of sudden give me opportunities to see the kids and keep them a while. Now when I’m struggling. So yea..I got 50/50 custody, zero child support. Why do I still feel cheated? Because visitation with my children was almost non existent last year. It is because of the circumstances surrounding this situation that has cost me my footing and my previous job of two years. It is the reason I need to know what I should be doing and who can help me. I welcome all replies, comments, ideas. I can officially file for contempt this Nov. I’m asking for enforcement of 50/50 custody. Zero child support. Thanks for listening.
