“For then will I turn to the peoples a tongue for her generation, that all may call on the name of the Lord, to serve him under one yoke.” Zephaniah 3:9 Septuagint “For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent”. KJV
the Lord God said: 'Open his mouth and his ears, that he may hear and
speak with his mouth, with the language which has been revealed'; for
it had ceased from the mouths of all the children of men from the day
of the overthrow (of Babel).And I opened his mouth, and his ears and
his lips, and I began to speak with him in Hebrew in the tongue of
the creation.” The Bood of Jubilees 12:25-26
Tongue Of The Creation
RESEARCH: GOD DID SPEAK WORLD INTO EXISTENCE
Student's scientific documentation offers evidence of biblical account
A science student in Kentucky says when the Bible records God spoke, and things were created, that’s just what happened, and he can support that with scientific experiments.
“If God spoke everything into existence as the Genesis record proposes, then we should be able to scientifically prove that the construction of everything in the universe begins with a) the Holy Spirit (magnetic field); b) Light (an electric field); and c) that Light can be created by a sonic influence or sound,” Samuel J. Hunt writes on his website.
“There are several documented and currently taught laboratory experiments that accurately portray the events in Genesis in sequential order, the most important being that of sonoluminescence,” he wrote.
That, he described to WND, is the circumstance in which sending a sonic signal into bubbles in a fluid causes the bubbles to collapse and they release photons, or create light.
That aligns with one of the earlier descriptions of the creation by God, when, in Genesis 1:1-3, the Holy Spirit moved upon the face of the deep, which generally is considered water, and said “Let there be light,” he explained.
God was sending a sonic influence into the waters, and basically creating light, Hunt said. He’s documented his theory, and the experiments he believes back it up, in his “Episteme Scientia, the Law of All That Is.”
Researchers at institutions no less than UCLA and the University of Chicago have verified the production of light from bubbles when sound is passed through a liquid, called sonoluminescence.
Hunt said he was spurred on in his work because the advanced physics and other courses he was taking were advancing propositions that sometimes didn’t match up.
“The further I went, the more my questions seemed to be being answered in the Genesis record,” he told WND.
His abstract states, “An examination of the sequential mathematical and experimental dual proof of the Genesis record of origins underlying the institution of all that is in the universe – from waves to matter to the mind.”
Hunt said science has been proving the Genesis account in classrooms for centuries, “in spite of the fervency to promote evolution and big bang theories.”
A student at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Hunt said his questions started very simply.
“I asked my professors in physics and chemistry, ‘What if I could scientifically prove that all matter was spoken into existence and that all matter could be manipulated by sound just as Genesis says? Wouldn’t that mean God exists and created the universe?” he asked.
“Nobody’s ever done that before,” was the response.
His 84-page treatise, now published, addresses that, he said.
Hunt said he believes every event in Genesis can be observed to be happening daily.
“Either you experience a universe of chaos or a universe of order and processes that produce immediate and calculable results,” he wrote. “The results of my research support and prove that everything that exists was spoken into existence from waves to matter to mind.”
“My professors think my application of accepted laws and theories may bend the rules a bit, but the ideas are thought-provoking and progressive,” he said.
The website describes the integration of several mathematical systems including “Phi, Pi, L-systems, Penrose tiling, and an all-encompassing Koch curve.”
The outline, available at scienceprovescreation.com, already has sold more than 1,700 copies.
Hunt said his goal was to be able to provide experiments that would explain the Genesis creation story – in the order the Bible records events happened.
“Some of my teachers are like, ‘That’s complete hogwash,'” he said, “while others say, ‘That’s pretty interesting.'”
His goal is to bring a unity to the Christian community, “just like the founders of our nation expected and wanted from the Constitution.”
The documentation of his processes, Hunt believes, could end debate.
“People want to know the truth, to have something to stand on that’s not trickery and deceit,” he said. “This gives people something real to touch, hang on to.”
At the end of her life, my mother started seeing ghosts
By Steven Petrow, Washington Post, July 22, 2016
Last summer, six months before my mother died, I walked into her bedroom, and she greeted me with tinny hello and a big smile. She then resumed a conversation with her mother–who had died in 1973. “Where are you?” Mom asked, as though Grandma, a onetime Fifth Avenue milliner, was on one of her many European hat-buying junkets. As I stood there dumbstruck, Mom continued chatting–in a young girl’s voice, no less–for several more minutes. Was this a reaction to medication, a sign of advancing dementia? Or was she preparing to “transition” to wherever she was going next?
Regardless, Mom was freaking me out–as well as my brother, sister and father.
As it turned out, my mother’s chat with a ghost was a signal that the end was inching closer. Those who work with the terminally ill, such as social workers and hospice caregivers, call these episodes or visions a manifestation of what is called Nearing Death Awareness.
“They are very common among dying patients in hospice situations,” Rebecca Valla, a psychiatrist in Winston-Salem, N.C., who specializes in treating terminally ill patients, wrote in an email. “Those who are dying and seem to be in and out of this world and the ‘next’ one often find their deceased loved ones present, and they communicate with them. In many cases, the predeceased loved ones seem [to the dying person] to be aiding them in their ‘transition’ to the next world.”
While family members are often clueless about this phenomenon, at least at the outset, a small 2014 study of hospice patients concluded that “most participants” reported such visions and that as these people “approached death, comforting dreams/visions of the deceased became more prevalent.”
Jim May, a licensed clinical social worker in Durham, N.C., said that family members–and patients themselves–are frequently surprised by these deathbed visitors, often asking him to help them understand what is happening. “I really try to encourage people, whether it’s a near-death experience or a hallucination, to just go with the flow,” May explained after I told him about my mom’s visitations. “Whatever they are experiencing is real to them.”
Valla agreed, telling me what not to do: “Minimize, dismiss or, worse, pathologize these accounts, which is harmful and can be traumatic” to the dying person. In fact, May said, “most patients find the conversations to be comforting.”
That certainly appeared to be the case with my mother, who had happy exchanges with several good friends, who, like my grandmother, were no longer living.
In a moving 2015 TED talk, Christopher Kerr, the chief medical officer at the Center for Hospice and Palliative Care in Buffalo, showed a clip of one his terminally ill patients discussing her deathbed visions, which included her saying, “My mom and dad, my uncle, everybody I knew that was dead was there [by my side]. I remember seeing every piece of their face.” She was lucid and present.
May acknowledged that it’s understandably “hard to have empirical evidence” for such episodes in patients, but that it’s important for family members and health professionals to figure out how to respond
One evening I made a simple dinner: spaghetti with a store-bought marinara sauce and a bright green leafy salad. Mom had pretty much stopped eating by this point, which is common as the end draws near, but she made a show of trying her best with this repast for the two of us, plus my father. It was heartbreaking to watch her try to spear the pasta, but she managed several hearty mouthfuls, saving room for a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
After dinner, I helped her back to bed, where she exclaimed: “How did you know?” “How did I know what?” I asked. “That was exactly how I wanted my funeral to be. You invited all my favorite people, and the food was just what I would have ordered.”
She was beaming. Six weeks later, she passed–and pasta and salad were on the menu at her service.

Reject 'Passive' Christianity, Former MMA, WWE Star Ken Shamrock Tells California Megachurch
BY MICHAEL GRYBOSKI , CHRISTIAN POST REPORTER
July 18, 2017
Former accomplished mixed martial artist and ex-professional wrestler Ken Shamrock told worshipers at a California megachurch that they should reject "passive" Christianity.
Speaking at Valley Bible Fellowship of Bakersfield on Sunday, Shamrock warned against being indifferent in witnessing, advising: "Don't sit on your Bible."
"Don't hug it to your chest and keep it to yourself. God created you a certain way. Just because you've become a Christian doesn't mean you become passive," said Shamrock.
"It doesn't mean you become all-loving and all-caring and there's no discipline. You got to stand up and become the aggressive person God made you to be or the loving and intelligent person He made you to be."
Shamrock also told the congregation of Valley Bible that they should not let the "seatbelt of sin" prevent them from evangelism.
"The difference between speaking out on something like this is life and death. And when I say that I mean eternal life and eternal damnation," he noted.
"Don't ever pass up an opportunity to spread God's Gospel or His Word because it is eternal life or eternal damnation."
A native of Macon, Georgia, and commonly known as the "World's Most Dangerous Man," Shamrock has an extensive professional fighting and pro-wrestling background.
"Shamrock is a worldwide recognized MMA fighter and is an inductee into the UFC Hall of Fame," noted Valley Bible Fellowship on its website.
"Along with fighting in the UFC, Shamrock also wrestled in the WWF (Now called World Wrestling Entertainment) and was the first ever Pancrase Heavyweight World Champion in Japan."
As part of his remarks at Valley Bible, Shamrock discussed his troubled upbringing, which included being raised in a poverty-stricken part of Macon and eventually running away from home and a criminal record.
He explained that his spiritual development as a teenager was greatly advanced by his time at a boys home overseen by the man who eventually adopted him, Bob Shamrock.
"The only difference between that group home and all the other ones that I went to was church," recalled Shamrock during his speech at Valley Bible on Sunday.
He stressed that he believed this was the reason that the boys home helped to turn his life around even when the other homes failed.
In addition to his professional fighting career, Shamrock also oversees other endeavors, including business ventures and public speaking, as well as a charity to benefit at-risk youth.
"Shamrock is also the founding father of Lion's Den Ministries, a non-for-profit that serves as a mouthpiece to troubled youth and young adults," noted Valley Bible.
"Furthermore, Shamrock has written two books, Inside the Lion's Den and Beyond the Lion's Den, and has appeared in several films."

The dig site at Tel Shiloh, Israel.
Archaeologists funded by Christian organizations are taking a shovel — again — to Tel Shiloh, an archaeological site that was a major center of worship for ancient Israelites.
They’re looking for the ark of the covenant, the holy chest containing the two stone tablets on which Moses is said to have written the Ten Commandments, which was stationed at the ancient city of Shiloh for 400 years.
“We’re taking the Bible as a serious historical document,” Dr. Scott Stripling, the leader of this dig, told Times of Israel. Stripling was a pastor for twenty years before becoming an archaeologist.
“There are some who say the Bible is unreliable,” he added. “We have found it to be very reliable.”
Stripling falls in the biblical narrative camp of archaeology, as opposed to those who say that only evidence in the ground can tell the story of ancient Israel.
“The story of the ark is fascinating; but it can teach us mainly about the world of the authors,” said Dr. Israel Finkelstein, a professor of archaeology at Tel Aviv University and leader of the last major dig at Shiloh, in the 1980s.
(If they hope to find the Ark they may want to try looking on Mount Nebo where the book of ll Maccabees explains that Jeremiah the prophet hid the Ark before the Babylonian invasion and destruction of Jerusalem. The only problem is, Mount Nebo is presently in Jordanian territority.
“It was also contained in the same writing, that the prophet, being warned of God, commanded the tabernacle and the ark to go with him, as he went forth into the mountain, where Moses climbed up, and saw the heritage of God. And when Jeremy came thither, he found an hollow cave, wherein he laid the tabernacle, and the ark, and the altar of incense, and so stopped the door.
And some of those that followed him came to mark the way, but they could not find it. Which when Jeremy perceived, he blamed them, saying, As for that place, it shall be unknown until the time that God gather his people again together, and receive them unto mercy. Then shall the Lord shew them these things, and the glory of the Lord shall appear, and the cloud also, as it was shewed under Moses, and as when Solomon desired that the place might be honourably sanctified.” ll Maccabbes 2:4-8)
US worried as Iran, Iraq forge close security ties

Iraq, fresh from liberating Mosul in its most serious blow to Takfiri terrorists, is reaching out to Iran which, according to most senior Iraqi officials, prevented Baghdad from falling to Daesh.
Iraqi Defense Minister Erfan al-Hiyali was in Tehran on Sunday, signing an agreement to step up military cooperation and the fight against "terrorism and extremism".
Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Jaberi Ansari was in Baghdad where Iraqi Parliament Speaker Salim al-Jabouri, a Sunni Muslim, stressed the need for the two neighbors to continue their cooperation in fighting terrorism.
Iran provided Iraq with a steady contribution of military advisers who were key to pushing back Daesh terrorists. Iran's charismatic military commander Major General Qassem Soleimani famously rushed to Iraq's help when Daesh was closing in on Baghdad in July 2014.
That was when the Takfiri militants had captured Iraq's second city of Mosul and swept across northern and central Iraq in the summer of 2014 in a blitz that placed nearly a third of Iraq under Daesh's control.
The lightning attacks saw some of the worst atrocities in the region's memory, including the massacre of Sinjar and summary executions of at least 1,566 Iraqi Air Force cadets at Camp Speicher in Tikrit.
Some unusual events also came to pass, including a cakewalk march of Daesh armored vehicles in a single column into Ramadi where only one airstrike by the US and its allies could have taken them out.
The United States, however, started its airstrikes in Iraq when the Takfiris evidently could not gain more ground and were rather being driven back, thanks to Iranian arms and weapons shipped to the Arab country.
When Iraq started to retake Mosul, US and other Western media initially described the attempt as an impossible mission but later tried to portray America in the lead as advances began to fall in the Iraqi army's way.
Earlier this month, the spokesman for Hashd al-Sha'abi fighters Karim al-Nouri said the US had no role in Iraq's recapture of Mosul despite Western reports characterizing American troops as leading the operation.
Baghdad seeking ‘substantial’ Russian military & political presence in Iraq – vice-president
25 July, 2017

Russian military and political presence in Iraq would bring balance to the whole Middle Eastern and North African region, Nouri al-Maliki, the Iraqi vice-president, said during his visit to Moscow.
"It’s well known that Russia has historically strong relations with Iraq, therefore we would like Russia to have a substantial presence in our country, both politically and militarily,” al-Maliki said during his meeting with the speaker of Russia’s upper house of parliament, Valentina Matviyenko.
“This way, a balance would be established that would benefit the region, its peoples and its countries,” he added.
The vice president said that Baghdad wants to boost relations with Moscow as it believes “in Russia’s role in solving most of the key international issues as well as improving stability and balance in our region and worldwide.”
Matviyenko, in turn, praised the commitment of the current Iraqi authorities to widening their cooperation with Moscow.
“Russia is also determined to expand its interaction with Iraq both politically and economically as well as in the military-technical sphere, and, of course, on the parliamentary level,”she said.
In his talks with Russia’s Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, earlier Monday, al-Maliki stressed that a Russian presence in Iraq would bring the balance which couldn’t be “undermined in a political sense in favor of any external party.”
“Today we need Russia's greater involvement in Iraqi affairs, especially in the energy field. Now when we are done with Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL), Iraq needs investments in energy and trade,” he said.
Earlier in July, the Iraqi authorities announced that the last IS stronghold in the country, Mosul, had been fully liberated from the terrorists, following an eight-months-long campaign backed by the US-led coalition.
Al-Maliki told Lavrov that Moscow and Baghdad “should enhance… cooperation in countering terrorism in the region.”
“We believe that both our countries are targets for terrorists and those who stand behind them," al-Maliki said.
Moscow supports the efforts of the Iraqi authorities to “normalize the situation in the country, first of all aiming at eradicating the terrorist threat,” Lavrov said.
It’s vital that Baghdad’s struggle isn’t carried out in isolation, but is carried on in the context of international efforts to eradicate the terrorist threat across the globe, including in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen and other countries, the Russian FM added.
Al-Maliki is also travelling to St. Petersburg, where he’s expected to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday.
Erdogan urges Muslims to 'visit' and 'protect' Jerusalem
PUBLISHED: 12:01, 25 July 2017 UPDATED: 19:51, 25 July 2017
The Dome of the Rock in the old city of Jerusalem
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday urged all Muslims to visit and protect Jerusalem after violence broke out over metal detectors Israel installed and later removed from a sensitive holy site in the city.
"From here I make a call to all Muslims. Anyone who has the opportunity should visit Jerusalem, Al-Aqsa mosque," Erdogan said in Ankara. "Come, let's all protect Jerusalem."
He was referring to a site, known to Jews as the Temple Mount, which is central to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Israel installed metal detectors at entrances to the mosque compound, which also contains the Dome of the Rock, following an attack on July 14 that killed two Israeli police officers.
Palestinians viewed the security measures as an Israeli attempt to assert further control over the site, and large protests led to deadly clashes.
"They are attempting to take the mosque from Muslim hands on the pretext of fighting terrorism. There is no other explanation," Erdogan said in a speech to ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) lawmakers in parliament.
He said Israel's legitimacy rested on the extent of the respect it showed to Palestinians and their rights.
An Israeli foreign ministry statement called Erdogan's comments "mind-blowing, false and distorted", and suggested that he "deal with the problems in his own country".
"Jerusalem is a city whose government is committed to security, freedom, freedom of worship and respect for the rights of all minorities," the Israeli statement said.
Erdogan earlier also denounced attacks on synagogues in Turkey, referring to reports that an ultra-nationalist group threw stones at a synagogue in Istanbul last week.
"It does not make sense to attack synagogues here because something has happened at Al-Aqsa mosque. This does not suit our religion and it is not allowed," he said.
Erdogan: Turkey will ‘no longer’ cave in to pressure from the West
26 July, 2017
Western states should not expect Turkey to blindly follow their instructions anymore, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said ahead of talks between Turkish and EU officials. He also supported the deal on S-400 missile defense systems with Russia.
Erdogan made a speech against western and, in particular, EU countries that he believes are treating Turkey unfairly, while addressing his party’s lawmakers in Ankara on Tuesday.

“The West wants Turkey to bring about their demands no questions asked... I am sorry to say that Turkey no longer exists,” the Turkish president said, as cited by AP, while his foreign minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu was preparing to meet with the EU top foreign officials in Brussels.
Relations between Turkey and the EU have been on the rocks since the Turkish authorities launched a wide-ranging crackdown on dissent in wake of the failed coup attempt of July 15, 2016.
A brewing diplomatic row between Germany and Turkey worsened in March after several German states refused to host rallies in support of the Turkey’s constitutional referendum that eventually granted the Turkish president more powers in April. The refusal infuriated the Turkish leader, who likened it to the policies of Nazi times. Most recently, the war of words between Ankara and Berlin reignited after Erdogan was denied permission to stage a rally on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Hamburg.
The arrest of 10 human rights activists, including the head of Turkey’s branch of Amnesty International and German and Swedish citizens on July 5 in a hotel on the Sea of Marmara, soured strained relations even further, with human rights advocates calling on EU leaders to raise the issue with their Turkish counterparts during the talks.
During his speech, Erdogan lashed out at his critics, referring to the detained activists as “agents” and warning European countries against meddling in Turkish internal affairs.
“You’re going to prevent Turkey’s president and ministers from speaking in your country, but your agents are going to swarm in, come to hotels here and break my country up into pieces?” he said, as cited by Bloomberg, vowing retaliation to the countries that infringe upon Turkey’s sovereignty and refuse to do business on equal terms.
Following the meeting in Brussels, Johannes Hahn, European Commissioner in charge of European Neighborhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, reminded Turkey of the obligation to respect human rights and core democracy values, including the freedom of the press, calling them “basic imperative requirements for any progress toward the European Union.”
Responding to the criticism, Cavusoglu labeled reporters currently on trial in Turkey as “pseudo-journalists who help terrorist activities,” arguing that their actions, as well as that of the arrested soldiers and politicians, contributed to the coup.
“They need to also face the sentences that are necessary,” he said, as cited by Reuters.
‘Nothing to worry about’ – Erdogan on S-400 deal
In an apparent reference to concerns of the US military over a looming purchase by Turkey of Russia’s advanced S-400 anti-missile defense systems, Erdogan reiterated he was looking forward to the deliveries.
“God willing, we’ll see them [missile systems] in our country soon,” the Turkish leader said, as cited by Bloomberg.
He noted that Ankara at first attempted to secure the deal on similar conditions with Washington, but it was never agreed.
“If we can’t get what we want from America, we have to look elsewhere,” he said.
Erdogan has already responded to remarks by Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford, who said Saturday that the reports of the S-400 purchase are “incorrect”and “would be a concern, were they to do that.”
“Why would it be worrying? Every country needs to take certain measures for its own security,” the Turkish president told journalists at Ankara airport on Monday, as cited by Anadolu news agency.
Russian and Turkish officials have been negotiating the purchase since November 2016 and have repeatedly confirmed that the deal is practically secured save for some financial aspects. Earlier this month, reports emerged that $2.5 billion was agreed as the sum of the contract.
CARE: Yemen situation 'absolute shame on humanity'
July 23, 2017

International humanitarian agency Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere (CARE) has voiced alarm at the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, calling the situation a "shame on humanity".
"We are now in the 21st century and the current situation is an absolute shame on humanity," the head of the NGO Wolfgang Jamann told reporters on Saturday after a five-day visit to the country.
"Sixty percent of the country is food insecure and over half the population is unable [to access] safe drinking water," he said.
"Many areas in Yemen are just one step away from a famine situation," the body's CEO said, urging the international community to "end the suffering".
Ravages of war
He also touched on the massive bloodshed and destruction which has been plaguing the country since Saudi Arabia began bombing the country in 2015.
More than 12,000 people have died, and much of the country turned into death traps for civilians since the onset of the invasion, meant to restore Yemen’s former Saudi-allied government. More than 44,500 people are estimated to have been wounded.
The US and the UK have been providing the bulk of the military ordnance used by Saudi Arabia in the war. The UK has licensed 3.3 billion pounds worth of weapons since the beginning of Saudi Arabia's war on Yemen in March 2015.
The US also sealed a multibillion arms deal with Saudi Arabia when President Donald Trump made his maiden visit abroad in May. The deal, which is worth $350 billion over 10 years and $110 billion that will take effect immediately, was hailed by the White House as a significant expansion of the security relationship between the two countries.
"Thousands of civilians have died since the start of the conflict and millions more have been displaced inside the country," Jamann said.
Yemen is currently in the grip of a cholera outbreak that has killed 1,828 people since it erupted in late April. On Friday, the World Health Organization said the number of suspected cholera infections in the Arab world’s most impoverished country had risen to nearly 370,000 as of July 19.
The charity Oxfam, on the other hand, said the number of suspected cases of cholera could rise to more than 600,000, making the epidemic "the largest ever recorded in any country in a single year since records began."

Damage Limitation: Calls for 'Managed End' to Euro as Italy Teeters on the Brink
The increasing debate in Italy about the merits of "Italexit" is a reflection of the unresolvable difficulties that face the eurozone, financial expert Marc Friedrich told Sputnik Deutschland.
The possibility of Italy's exit from the eurozone has bas been raised in the Italian Parliament, as politicians try to come up with ways to tackle Italy's spiraling public debt, which reached 132.6 percent of GDP in 2016.
In early July, Italian parliamentarians from the Five Star Movement held a seminar in the Chamber of Deputies to discuss Italy's economic situation. They discussed the eurozone's default mechanism, strategies to restructure sovereign debt, parallel payment systems as well as the possibility of leaving the eurozone.
The debate signified the first time that the Italian Parliament discussed the "Italexit" option, a topic which had been "taboo" until recently, the Italian press reported.
Financial expert Marc Friedrich told Sputnik Deutschland that a return to the lira would benefit Italy, which is struggling like never before with record high levels of debt and unemployment.
"The countries of southern Europe would be a lot better off with a sovereign currency than with the euro," Friedrich said.
"These countries will never see shoots of recovery while they are in the eurozone and the interest rate limitations set by the European Central Bank (ECB). We wrote this as early as 2012 in our first book, 'Der groesste Raubzug der Geschichte,' (The Greatest Robbery in History). We see that the euro does not work. That is why I can only emphasize that Alberto Bagnai of the University of Pescara is right."
In March, economics professor Alberto Bagnai called for a controlled end to the euro, arguing, "No matter how much political capital is invested in it, the euro will fall."
"The most likely cause will be a collapse of the Italian banking system, which will take the German one with it. It is in the interest of any political power, certainly of the declining European leaders, and probably also of the US, to manage this event rather than passively await it," Bagnai wrote on his Goofynomics blog.
Like Bagnai, Friedrich is calling for "damage minimization" of the end to the euro.
"The only thing we are experiencing right now is a delay to bankruptcy and a worsening situation for most ordinary people. What we are doing is actually damage maximization, where we should now be minimizing the damage."
"The longer Italy and other southern European countries are controlled by the ECB and imprisoned by the euro, the greater the collateral damage to their prosperity, social coexistence, and, of course, democracy, because extreme parties are getting stronger and stronger," Friedrich warned.
As the third-largest economy in the eurozone, an unmanaged "Italexit" would have a catastrophic "tsunami" effect on the European economy, leading other countries to exit in its wake, the economist says. If Italy remains in the EU, then the bloc's strongest economy, Germany, will have to shoulder the burden of sending subsidies to Italy and other southern eurozone member states.
Such a situation contradicts the rules of the single currency and the ECB's asset purchase program, which is currently pumping 60 billion euros ($70 billion) per month into the eurozone system, is just papering over the cracks, Friedrich said.
"When the euro was created, it was said that no country should have to pay for another country. All these laws have been and are being broken from the top, and no one is punished for it. The euro is doomed, it's a currency on borrowed time. In actual fact, the euro is fake money. The euro will fail, the only question is when. The ECB is only trying to string it out for as long as possible."
"It's going to collapse and we can only hope that the politicians who are responsible will now try to minimize the damage and 'archive' the euro in a controlled way. In any case, it will be expensive. If we are unlucky, there will be huge disaster with a lot of collateral damage and a lot of people will lose money," Friedrich warned.
Friedrich's misgivings about the euro are shared by London School of Economics and Political Science professor Paul De Grauwe, who told the Austrian newspaper Der Standardearlier this month that the single currency can't succeed without a political and budgetary union to accompany it.
"Germany and Italy are both problems for the eurozone in their own way. I've just come from Italy, there is huge pessimism there. It is the only country in the monetary union that is poorer today than when the euro was introduced in 1999. Growth was zero or negative, people can't find jobs. They are stuck in a disaster. There is a great temptation that they will fall behind a leader who tells them that it will be better without the euro," De Grauwe said.
"Italy's system does not work well in the eurozone, it has had a long cycle of inflation, strong wage increases and then a crisis and depreciation. This is no longer possible, they have not adapted to the euro."
'Everything will collapse': German courts ‘overwhelmed’ by asylum seeker claims
20 July, 2017
The number of cases filed by asylum seekers challenging the decisions of immigration authorities in German courts has brought the legal system to the brink of collapse, a top German judge has warned in an interview.
The sheer number of cases filed has overwhelmed the civil courts of the country, said Robert Seegmuller, chairman of the Association of German Administrative Law Judges while speaking to the publishing house Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland (RND).
“The situation is dramatic for administrative courts,” Seegmuller told RND. “We are now completely stretched to our limits.”
Seegmuller had been complaining since spring about the number of lawsuits being filed against the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF). Thousands of applicants have challenged the decisions delivered on their cases by the BAMF, including deportation orders back to potentially unsafe countries such as Afghanistan.
Based on RND’s estimations, there are approximately 250,000 asylum-related cases waiting to be brought before the courts.
“The administrative court system cannot endure such a figure in the long run. At some point, everything will collapse,”Seegmüller warned. “Things may go well for a while, but not permanently.”
With such a vast volume of cases, the German legal system finds itself lacking judges and other personnel, space, and IT capabilities, he added.
“The justice system is indeed determined to bulk itself up, but it is ever more difficult to find the desperately needed personnel,” he said.
Seegmuller said in addition to the volume of work, the courts have to deal with poor decision-making by immigration authorities. He would not elaborate further.
The situation has been further complicated by a explosive reports earlier this year, in which a group of German soldiers with right-wing affiliations, allegedly plotted the assassinations of left-wing politicians with the intention to pin the crimes on migrants.
One of the suspects had managed to obtain a second identity as a Syrian refugee, prompting an early review of up to 100,000 asylum decisions which has created an even bigger backlog, according to the German Interior Ministry.
Morales Declares 'Total Independence' from World Bank and IMF
22 July, 2017
Since 2006, a year after Morales came to power, social spending on health, education, and poverty programs has increased by over 45 percent.
Bolivia's President Evo Morales has been highlighting his government's independence from international money lending organizations and their detrimental impact the nation.
"A day like today in 1944 ended Bretton Woods Economic Conference (USA), in which the IMF and WB were established," Morales tweeted. "These organizations dictated the economic fate of Bolivia and the world. Today we can say that we have total independence of them."
Morales has said Bolivia's past dependence on the agencies was so great that the International Monetary Fund had an office in government headquarters and even participated in their meetings.
Bolivia is now in the process of becoming a member of the Southern Common Market, Mercosur and Morales attended the group's summit in Argentina last week.
Bolivia’s popular uprising known as the The Cochabamba Water War in 2000 against United States-based Bechtel Corporation over water privatization and the associated World Bank policies shed light on some of the debt issues facing the region.
"The Bank and the IMF have been requiring these countries (in the Global South) to accept “structural adjustment,” which includes opening markets to foreign firms and privatizing state enterprises, including utilities," the New Yorker reported.
At the time, the World Bank had stated, "Poor governments are often too plagued by local corruption and too ill equipped" and "no subsidies should be given to ameliorate the increase in water tariffs in Cochabamba."
The New Yorker, reported, "Most of the poorest neighborhoods were not hooked up to the network, so state subsidies to the water utility went mainly to industries and middle-class neighborhoods; the poor paid far more for water of dubious purity from trucks and handcarts. In the World Bank's view, it was a city that was crying out for water privatization."
Some of Bolivia’s largest resistance struggles in the last 60 years have targeted the economic policies carried out by the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.
Most of the protests focused on opposing privatization policies and austerity measures, including cuts to public services, privatization decrees, wage reductions, as well the weakening of labor rights.

Feeling Awful? The Invisible Assault On You From Every Direction
By Ted Twietmeyer (c) 2017
Let us begin by considering a basic antenna. Any given length of wire will receive signals the strongest at a particular frequency. This is known as resonance, just like tapping a empty wine glass always produces a particular note. Nerves in our nervous system are an infinite number of antennas, some of which are several feet long. Consider the sciatic nerves which run from the spinal cord down to leg muscles. Tennis is a game that requires endless stretching, which can create a painful affliction called sciatica. Just a small pinch of this nerve (and others) in the spine or elsewhere in the body results in severe pain, sending people to doctors for relief. But this nerve can also be a virtual antenna, too.
The length of some nerves is very short; from millimeters down to microns long. Some nerves are several feet long. There are an almost infinite number of different length nerves between microns and several feet long. In effect, we are all walking antenna farms receiving unwanted radio frequencies (RF) from radio, television and device communication signals in our environment. Are neurologists trained to think about the human body as an antenna array? Absolutely not; just ask a doctor.
Police officers in the UK wear lapel microphones which have a short, two-way radio antenna for transmitting/receiving. This location places the radiating antenna when transmitting close to the brain. Some research on police officer brain tumor statistics show it may be the source of tumors. Not using the radio at all may not lessen exposure - these systems can work like cell phones by transmitting pulsed GPS data to indicate their location at any time.
In this document, a modem and a router are basically the same device as most modems now have a built-in router. Connection media to bring email and internet data to your modem may be DSL-enabled copper phone lines, a fiber-optic flat cable from the phone pole, cable TV company coax or a satellite dish connection.
But there are more issues with the RF problem which has been proven in the field. It has now raised concern around the world. Several years ago in Germany WiFi was removed from public school classrooms. WiFi was restricted to one room in the school for student use.
Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland, Russia, Canada and other countries have also taken action.  Research found WiFi frequency stimulation of children causes insomnia. Our brain was never designed to be exposed to radio frequency effects.
Other countries have set WiFi radiation exposure 100 to 10,000 times less than in the USA.  Why the US government is holding back on lowering the WiFi radiation exposure is unknown – unless WiFi is being used to transmit hidden signals that the government does not want blocked or the power levels reduced which could make hidden signals less effective.
About two years ago, my 10 year old digital cordless phone system suddenly began interfering with WiFi. It had run almost 10 years before that without a hitch. WiFi link with the modem was often lost when the phone rang or a call was made, requiring a modem restart. Phone company technician thought this was caused by a defective phone cable connection out to the pole and he replaced all the wire. That did not fix it.
After some research regarding cell phone and WiFi frequencies, I found out that the cordless phone
frequency was now closer to the newer WiFi channel frequencies. Without notice, the DSL modem radio frequencies were silently, REMOTELY CHANGED and were now closer to cordless phone frequencies. Even the phone company tech didn't know about this change. All these facts pointed to a very dark side of modems - hidden covert functions.
Any modem is similar to your cell phone. Cell phones and modems are essentially remotely controlled, programmable two-way radios. This may be why there are software upgrades for printers, computers, tablets and other devices. You rarely hear about software updates for modems.
For our home to continue WiFi use, a new cordless phone system had to be purchased. There was no other solution. Now the next logical question arises: What other functions are remotely programmable inside a modem? Can it covertly transmit any kind of mind or health altering signal from some nefarious agency at any time? Now we know that modem WiFi frequencies can be remotely changed, so the answer is yes. No one can easily tell what modem signals are being transmitted whenever the device is not busy performing WiFi functions.
Your cell phone can also be a problematic mind control device. A 2008 Scientific American article described how mind control can be done by cell phone. It describes altering alpha brain waves, creating insomnia and other issues shown in this article excerpt:
CELL PHONE INDUCED INSOMNIA
“If cell phone signals boost a person's alpha waves, does this nudge them subliminally into an altered state of consciousness or have any effect at all on the workings of their mind that can be observed in a person's behavior? James Horne and colleagues at the Loughborough University Sleep Research Centre in England devised an experiment to test this question. The result was surprising. Not only could the cell phone signals alter a person's behavior during the call, the effects of the disrupted brain-wave patterns continued long after the phone was switched off.
Here is a brief excerpt from Loughborough University Sleep Research Centre on insomnia:
"This was a completely unexpected finding," Horne told me. "We didn't suspect any effect on EEG [brain wave patterns after switching off the phone]. We were interested in studying the effect of mobile phone signals on sleep itself." But it quickly became obvious to Horne and colleagues in preparing for the sleep-research experiments that some test subjects had difficulty falling asleep.”
Is there a known precedent for hidden functions installed in a consumer product that can be used to kill? Yes. The following information was aired on television just one time in a circa 1992 post first gulf war documentary:
Saddam Hussein purchased dozens of new printers for use in his underground bunkers. The US government found out about this and they approached the printer manufacturer.
Manufacturer was told,“We will provide for free a replacement for one of the chips used on your printer's circuit board. It will transparently do everything your current chip does, along with a few special functions for us.” Manufacturer went along with it and installed the chips. Many of these printers were used in underground bunkers. The replacement chip transmitted a powerful homing signal from the deep underground bunkers. This signal was so powerful US bunker-buster bombs zeroed in on
it with pin-point precision. Keep in mind that was 26 years ago. Imagine how advanced the technology is now.
When cell phone tests on animals are performed by laboratories in America, the results inevitably show there is no problem. In Europe, laboratory tests and pathology work have shown cell phone signals degrade human health and can cause tumors.
You have seen food cook quickly in a microwave oven. Why should microwave radio frequencies be harmless to the human brain and body over time?
But there is more. The constant, relentless RF smog we live in has been affecting those with healing abilities for at least 20 years. Below is the testimony from a trusted friend received from him July 2017 regarding the detrimental effects of RF and how it interferes with healing people:
“The healing techniques I use and have used for the past 20 years are most ancient. It takes years of spiritual work before one can even begin to give these healings. I started this type of healing in 2002. Since that time I have given 9,000 treatments. I was part of a healing center in South Africa for 3 years and opened my own place in the States. These treatments have completely healed every type of disease or ailment.
However, the majority of the movie type “successes” were prior to 2013. The healing treatments use a method of diverting the life force energy from the sun to the area of disease. Wireless [cell phones, WiFi and other devices used everywhere] and air pollution has caused an effect which a scientist at one timed termed “global dimming”.
It makes sense because if you think of the energy spheres or particles/waves from the sun flowing to the earth and coming into the atmosphere, those natural beams are going to encounter unnatural atoms and molecules. Spinning in unnatural ways. This will send the life-force energy askew. It misses the planet.
The amount of life force that used to shower the earth 30 years ago was greater than it is now. Electronic smog now covers the planet. Human bodies can no longer heal naturally at the pace that was once normal. Wireless signals are forming a shield and blocking the life force energy. What used to be possible in one healing treatment now requires multiple healing treatments.
The amount of people open to try natural healing methods has also diminished greatly. Wireless can electro- shock everybody’s thought processes so that it requires more effort to think clearly.
Nothing flows as it should these days. People get a treatment which helps them immensely, then after a week later they can’t remember that the healing helped them heal and feel better. All life force flows into this solar system through the sun.“
If you see an old church with a newer-looking steeple which just doesn't make sense, it may be a cell site. Churches use these installations to rake in more than $2,000+/month forever from just one cell phone company. While this might seem like a small income, it is a great help to help balance any church budget when donations are dwindling.
There are companies that specialize in making fake steeples to create hidden cell phone sites:
Inside a church steeple reveals a ladder providing technicians access to the cell antenna
Once a contract is signed with the church, the steeple company or cell site company comes out to the church to take photographs and measurements of the steeple. A duplicate fiberglass steeple is designed/built with antennas inside using the collected data. A crane is brought in, the old steeple is removed and the new steeple is installed.
Antennas inside your cell phone have very low gain. To provide cell phones with multi-mile range, signal loss is compensated with large antenna arrays at cell phone sites. All cell phones today operate at the lower end of the microwave frequency band.
Hidden inside the church (if there is no room on the grounds outside) is a small equipment room installed with new AC power, cell radios/transmitters and computers. Antenna cables from the new steeple are brought down into this room and connected to transmitters/receivers. Transmitted power for each cell transmitter can be up to 100 watts/antenna, depending on the cell location. Just six antennas can transmit more RF power than your microwave oven generates to cook food.
How do I know these details about church steeples? I know a man who has made a tremendous income for decades doing nothing but cell phone sites and cell site upgrades for normal cell towers, water tank sites and hidden cell sites like steeples and fake trees. He uses specialized software to determine transmitter power level and antenna angles to properly design each cell.
WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT RF RADIATION EXPOSURE
There is abundant evidence in many areas around the world regarding the impact of RF signals on our health. You can help yourself by considering the following when possible:
Cell phones should never be carried in pockets and kept as far as possible from the body.
Use the speaker phone function to keep the internal antenna away from your head
Avoid cell tower exposure; don't live close to a cell tower or a hidden cell site
Do not sleep in hotel rooms on the top floor if you see cell antennas on the roof
If at work your office or desk is near a WiFi node (small box with antennas usually hanging from the ceiling or mounted high on a wall) don't expect to get a good night's sleep
There hidden cell sites in fake trees, fake church steeples and other places
In the UK, RF exposure can be greater from cell sites hidden inside gas station signs near ground level. Being closer to the antenna increases your exposure. These antennas continue to be installed over many
years in the UK, yet no one seems to care about RF hazard issues enough to outlaw these.
RF is like radiation exposure. The more exposure time to a cell transmit antenna and the closer to any cell transmit antenna you are, the more damage it can do to your health over time. Consider smoking; some people can smoke a pack or two a day and live to be 95. Others cannot tolerate smoking all. But who wants to find out that your body cannot tolerate smoking after it's too late when cancer or COPD starts? RF exposure is similar.
If you must use WiFi at home, move your modem, tablets, computers and printers as far as possible away from where you work, live or sleep in your home. Radio frequency strength falls off with distance.
Note: The normal default setting for WiFi in most modems is ON.
To eliminate WiFi (not hidden modem-transmitted signals) you can make connections to printers and your computer using Ethernet cables. (Ethernet won't work with many tablets, but wired USB might be an option.)
After cabling is installed, log on to your modem with any web browser to access its internally generated “web page.” Your internet provider will give you the URL number to type in your browser URL line, and tell you how to log in to the modem with a user name and password. There is a screen in your modem to turn off WiFi. You may need help from your internet provider on the phone to access this.
But keep this in mind - the WiFi on/off setting is ONLY A SOFTWARE SETTING. Your modem is just like your phone, printer, television or computer monitor; “on/off” only turns power on/off to certain parts of the internal circuitry. The RF transmitter in your modem could still be silently switched on and off by a remote command and you would never know it. Only by turning off the actual power to your modem can you stop it from transmitting, assuming it does not have an internal battery backup.
NEVER place any modem in a closed can with no ventilation while operating. These devices normally run quite warm. A lack of ventilation can cause an operating modem to overheat or permanently fail. Shielding modems is too complex a topic to discuss here.
Another way to resolve the modem power issue is to use a simple motorized lamp timer, which will turn off all power to the modem while you are asleep. These cheap timer devices allow you to set automatic turn on and off times to any time of day which works with your lifestyle. This has been shown effective to clear out trash data from the modem's memory, and improve data speed for some modems.
One way to be certain your cell phone is not transmitting any harmful signals while you sleep is to place your phone inside a 100% metal can with a metal top. Some cookie assortments come in a container like this. Make a small notch in the side of the metal can for the charging cord that extends below the recessed edge for the cover. Be sure to line the notch edges with foam or tape to prevent cutting or nicking the charging cord. Steel cookie cans are perfect for this. These are made of steel and
block both RF and magnetic fields.
You can leave the phone in the can turned on – the phone cannot do anything harmful when it is fully shielded (as of this writing.) After removing the phone from the can it will require a short time for the phone to re-connect to your cell phone network. If you don't use the phone frequently, keep it stored in the can until you do need it.
Many cell phones charge the battery only once when charging is finished, until the connector to the phone is removed and plugged in again. This will prevent over-charging the lithium battery which can be hazardous.
Many phones will not trickle charge, so every few days you will need to unplug and re-plug the charging cord into the phone to keep it charged. It may be possible to simply plug your charger into a lamp timer set to cycle power every few days and recharge the battery. It may not work with all phones. Everything stated above applies to tablets, too. Tablets will need a much bigger can.
RF EXPOSURE – THINK OF DEVICE EXPOSURE AS SIMILAR TO RADIOACTIVITY
Think of electronic devices in your home that use RF (WiFi, cell phones, tablets etc...) as if they are radioactive. Shield yourself from RF whenever possible using power control, shielding and distance. Do not wear any device on your body that generates radio signals for any length of time. For phones worn near the hip, kept in pockets or holsters, research data isn't in yet for possible serious kidney, liver and intestinal damage.
Examples of harmless devices you can safely wear are older, small radios or CD players which do not have RF data link capabilities. Remember – any wireless data type device is always a two-way radio, transmitting and receiving RF which can transmit hidden signals, too.
If you were to walk across the front of a cell site antenna, you will probably die in a few days from organ failure caused by microwave damage to organs. There is nothing any doctor can do to help. This is prior history of this happening years ago to a man on a roof walking in front of a lower power microwave relay dish. Low power exposure from electronic devices may take longer to cause damage.
I know what RF radiation exposure from a cell phone has done – my father-in-law died from cancer caused by cell phone radiation on the side of his head many years ago. A rapidly growing tumor began exactly where his cell phone antenna was on the right side of his head. That tumor quickly spread and turned into stage 4 lymphoma.
Not everyone dies of RF damage from electronic devices, but who wants to find out the hard way?
