Excerpts from Michael Yon's illustrated post.
Trayvon Martin was 17 when he was shot. Many people say he was just a “child.”
Let's look at the evidence.
Trayvon Martin closed with and ambushed George Zimmerman, punching him in the face and jumping on him, pounding his head on a sidewalk, which sidewalk Mr. Martin used as a deadly weapon.
The assailed often becomes the defendant. The dead assailant is propped up as an angel.
Martin is still being called a “child” by race baiting politicians. We have 17 year-old paratroopers. In Iraq, Afghanistan, and most other wars, many of the fighters are closer to 14, often younger. In wars past, countless US military people joined at 14.
When looking for the truth is considered to be a witch hunt, we have a problem. When searching for the truth gets someone labeled a racist, that is a problem.
Mr. Zimmerman might actually be a wannabe cop, and it is established that Mr. Martin either was a wannabe “gangsta,” or already was one.
As we saw with the Zimmerman prosecution, lynchings still happen, only today the lynch mob leader is President Obama. For foreign readers who have not noticed, many Americans sense that President Obama is severely racist and divisive, uninterested in justice but revenge for injustices he never suffered.
Too many have helped whip the nation into a frenzy, as if the evil white man Zimmerman -- who is as white as President Obama is -- has executed a mere child, defenseless and innocent. This frenzy has lead to violence and probably death, and it is picking up steam as President Obama fans the flames with his rhetoric.
Gay "Marriage" Won't Affect Me, so What's the Big Deal? (by Father Edwin Palka)
My wife brought home a Church bulletin from her trip to Florida, and showed me an article written by the Priest at the Parish where she attended Mass while she was away (St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church). Admittedly, Briana and I have a particular fondness for this Priest...he celebrated our Marriage. But that's not what made me want to post his article. It is his plain and head-on way of addressing a real problem that every person, Catholic or not, is going to have to come to terms with, one way or another. Without further ado, I am pleased to reproduce Father Edwin Palka's article.
...... by normalizing homosexual “marriage” we are going to terribly mess up (physically, mentally and spiritually) our children......By the time the children enter into puberty they will already be primed by years of brainwashing to think that they are most likely homosexual..... societal pressure will be intense. They will have been groomed to see black as interchangeable with white, evil as interchangeable with (or even better than) good, and males as interchangeable with females (with preference being given to the same sex).

" By the time the children enter into puberty they will already be primed by years of brainwashing to think that they are most likely homosexual."
This alleges, then, that sexual attraction is a learned response rather than - as 'homosexuals' attest - a matter of natural programming which they find socially inconvenient. Certainly there are people who - and I am thinking of a rather vociferous person who led me to them - believe this to be the case.
The question then becomes, for me, this : do I countenance known attack on their family integrity on the grounds that it confuses the children not involved in the situation and frustrates their orientation ?
To do so as a matter of law rather than of spiritual development ( having fallen prey to fear ) deliberately marginalizes members of the community who already are seen as 'abnormal.' Rather than claim to do so is a matter of loving concern I see it as veiled hypocrisy mixed with pre-judice.
Man says he is a rational animal. Prayer and reflection helps us to see ourselves for what we also are : a rationalizing animal.
Does prayer to Mary take away from Christ ?
There is simply no way that Mary or the saints are anything whatsoever without God.
The fact that they are with God and united to Him in Heaven means that they are always 'with' God, never apart from Him. They do nothing, see nothing, hear nothing etc except through Him, always and completely.
As St. Paul says, here we 'see in a glass darkly'. . .in Heaven we 'see face to face'.
So praying to Jesus through or with Mary is always and for ever centered in Jesus
( Did it twice. Substituted Mary for Jesus and Jesus for God. Theologically this may be as correct as correct can be. It still twists the mind. And all the while admitting 'God' is essentially immortal and invisible...an excellent basis to make reasoned discussion impossible to implausible...about an undefinable. )
How the Pentagon's payroll quagmire traps America's soldiers
.....The money the military took back from Aiken resulted from accounting and other errors, and it should have been his to keep. Further, even after Aiken complained, the Defense Department didn't return the bulk of the money to Aiken until after Reuters inquired about his case.
The Pentagon agency that identified the overpayments, clawed them back and resisted Aiken's pleas for explanation and redress is the Defense Finance and Accounting Service, or DFAS (pronounced "DEE-fass"). This agency, with headquarters in Indianapolis, Indiana, has roughly 12,000 employees and, after cuts under the federal sequester, a $1.36 billion budget. It is responsible for accurately paying America's 2.7 million active-duty and Reserve soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines.
It often fails at that task, a Reuters investigation finds.
Years ago I would refer to the weblog Articles and Answers and to the BB Blog Forum/Archive Through coincidence I happened upon an article which I could not copy and could only link by making reference to the forum and source. It purported to represent systematic defrauding of soldiers out of benefits to alleviate suffering caused by service experience. Part of this was accomplished by denying legal representation to the agencies and instructions for their 'representative case workers' to seem to befriend them the better to accomplish this.
For anyone who knows Workers Compensation employees are rewarded for getting people off benefit this analogy is not difficult to believe. Ditto since I happened to read a wounded veteran's account of his suffering at the hands of bureaucracy which he pulled under harassment by his mates...or BlueGirlRedState's exposes of neglect of medical facilities for the enlisted in the US ....or saw articles about 'reconstruction' fraud in Iraq which went so far as to lead to electrocution of soldiers in showers.
Part of this is accomplished by bureaucratic runaround : separate agencies with overlapping responsibilities for different services, regiments, etc. foisting off theirs to plausible alternatives. 'Privatizing' and corporate secrecy added on top of military classifications makes a formidable defense against liability.

The ABC's of respiratory health
Typically those living in the West are annually starved of the life-giving UVB Ultra-violet light rays (which manifest as the steroid hormone Vitamin D3) throughout the entire duration of Winter & early Spring. As a result the Lymphocytes in their lungs cannot process Vitamin C & E, which leads to Respiratory disfunction & increased vulnerability to ALL infections. Vitamin D is required to increase the circulation of calcium and phosphorous, two minerals necessary for healthy bones. The kidneys produce Vitamin D3 & the liver plays a vital role in the functioning of D3 throughout the body. Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen, the intercellular “cement” substance which gives structure to muscles, vascular tissues, bones, tendons and ligaments. Vitamin E is an antioxidant which intercepts free radicals and therefore prevents lipid destruction chain reactions. It maintains the integrity of cell membranes. After reactions with free radicals the antioxidant function of vitamin E is lost. Vitamin C is able to regenerate Vitamin E levels but not when the Vitamin D3 levels drop off. As you can see, when any primary systems are compromised, a chain reaction occurs...
... In children, low vitamin D3 levels are associated with an increased risk of developing auto-immune diseases later in life; including Type 1 Diabetes & Multiple Sclerosis. 50 million teens in the United States are Vitamin D deficient or insufficient. They have a 2.4 fold increased risk of having High Blood Pressure, 2.5 fold risk of having High Blood Sugar and a 4 fold increased risk of having pre-Type 2 Diabetes. In adults, it is linked to an increased risk as much as 50% of acquiring Prostate, Colon, Pancreatic & Breast cancer including Leukemia – ‘Vitamin D Receptor Deficiency Enhances Wnt/β-Catenin Signaling and Tumor Burden in Colon Cancer…controls the level of nuclear β-catenin in colon cancer cells and can therefore attenuate the impact of oncogenic mutations that activate the Wnt/β-catenin pathway.‘ Vaccines & antibiotics drastically deplete the body of these, and other, vital nutrients.
you’re seeing a chain reaction affecting 7 major antioxidants in the body, all essential to regulating your overall metabolism, Liver, Kidney, Thyroid, Methylation, including Mitochondrial function, generally neutralized in these children with Autism; and all the evidence points to heavy metal toxicity derived from standard Immunization Vaccines (25 injections by 15 months).
Note: All vaccinated children, regardless, are susceptible to this depletion to a lesser or greater extent.
The whole basis for vaccinations is unphysiological. The vast majority of infections enter the body through the nasal passages & the Gastro-Intestinal Tract or the guts. Accordingly 80% of the body’s immune system is situated at these junctures; the natural first line of defence. Vaccines are injected into deep muscle tissue/subcutaneously, either route which literally bypasses one’s natural barriers altogether. Thus the body is left vulnerable to live viruses & heavy metals.
Vaccines, by their composite nature, inherently damage & disrupt the body’s delicate neurological network; hindering the complex functioning of the brain in maintaining all systems of operation (circulatory, digestive, endocrine, immune, lymphatic, muscular, nervous, reproductive, respiratory, skeletal, and urinary). In practical terms, a synergy factor inevitably occurs when multiple ingredients such as heavy metals, live viruses/or strands of DNA-RNA “heat treated virus”, antibiotics, formaldehyde, detergent, diploid cells (aborted fetal tissue), mycoplasma, phenol dye & excipient buffers are combined together in a vial mixture.
.....Note: The synergy of vaccine derived heavy metal-virus-mycoplasma-excipient toxicity “sludge” targets 3 primary core “electrical grid” stations encasing the nerve center/brain – akin to throwing water over a main keyboard operating system. In the event the Blood-Brain barrier, Myelin sheath & Meninges are breached, particularly at such a critical stage in early childhood development, susceptibility to (otherwise avoidable) neuro-developmental disorders occurring increases exponentially.
Mandatory Vaccinations - How they will be implemented
The modern healthcare system, like any powerful corporation, is designed to favor those who acquiesce with their rules & regulations; likewise to weed out & alienate those who do not fall into line with the rest of the “herd”. The entire cesspool of Western Allopathic Medicine, fueled by a powerful medical mafia monopoly, dominates our lives through an endless barrage of mainstream media propaganda, a giant social engineering model, run by select committees of overpaid Technocratic Elites – void of any decent moral code of ethics, adherence to the Hippocratic oath or underlying sense of altruism toward humanity. How do we avoid their calibrated landmines, and retain what little we can of self reliance and self-sustaining capacity for natural immunity in these tyrannical times? We must reluctantly go along with their manufactured guidelines, in order to stand clear from the rest of the herd.
It is important to understand that ANY/ALL exemptions pertaining to standard immunization vaccines (medical, religious or moral/personal belief type) are fundamentally illegal, because they transpose an inherent human RIGHT into a PRIVILEGE, on the presumption that you acknowledge and thus sacrifice your natural born “freedom of choice” to an external authority. This is the basis of the looming collectivist (authoritarian) model being rolled out worldwide – the complete isolation of non-conformists and critical thinking individuals. Just remember, it is all color of law, technically a form of entrapment.
