Don’t Worry Be Happy

No one gets to live in the world they grew up in, it moves too fast.

It wasn’t always like this.  My father grew up plowing with mules as had his father and his father and his father back and back into the mist of time.  Things changed slowly until the machine age.  Then with the development of the steam engine, the assembly line, and mechanization things started to speed up.  Today we are in the first throws of the Second Machine Age, and things are beginning to travel faster than we can assimilate.

The renowned futurist Alvin Toffler first called it Future Shock.  Then he called it The Third Wave.  Then came Powershift,War and Antiwar, and finally Creating a New Civilization.

What it all comes down to is technology is moving at an exponential rate.  It is accelerating faster than we can adapt to and therefore there are social and cultural dislocations on the horizon.  One good way to visualize exponential growth is to remember the story of the man who invented chess.

Hundreds and hundreds of years ago there was a King in India who loved to play games. But he had gotten bored of the games that were present at the time and wanted a new game that was much more challenging. He commissioned a poor mathematician who lived in his kingdom to come up with a new game. After months of struggling with all kinds of ideas the mathematician came up with the game of Chaturanga (Chess).

The game had two armies each lead by a King who commanded the army to defeat the other by capturing the enemy King. It was played on a simple 8×8 square board. The King loved this game so much that he offered to give the poor mathematician anything he wished for. “I would like one grain of rice for the first square of the board, two grains for the second, four grains for the third and so on doubled for each of the 64 squares of the game board” said the mathematician. “Is that all?” asked the King, “Why don’t you ask for gold or silver coins instead of rice grains.” “The rice should be sufficient for me.” replied the mathematician. The King ordered his staff to lay down the grains of rice and soon learned that all the wealth in his kingdom would not be enough to buy the amount of rice needed on the 64th square. In fact the whole kingdom’s supply of rice was exhausted before the 30th square was reached. “You have provided me with such a great game and yet I cannot fulfill your simple wish. You are indeed a genius.” said the King and offered to make the mathematician his top advisor instead.

We can see what a great example this is as a lesson in exponential growth when we reflect on the fact that the chess board has 64 squares and if you put just one grain on the first and double up on the next and so on, you will reach an enormous amount of grain.

1 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 If you work this out you get an incredible amount of grain something like this: 18.446.744.073.709.551.615 around 18.446.744 Trillions of wheat grains.

This is where Moore’s Law begins to impact our lives.  Moore’s Law is a computing term which originated around 1970 which states that processor speeds, or overall processing power for computers will double every two years.  That is exponential growth.  It began very slowly with computers the size of small buildings in climate controlled rooms clean manned by teams of scientist and mathematicians.  Today five year-old children routinely play with games having more computing power that NASA had to get to the Moon.  Our cell phones were invented by Martin Cooper who was trying to bring the Star Trek communicators to life.  Today our smartphones are computers that have more power than supercomputers of just a few years ago.  It helps to remember that the Star Trek communicators were audio only.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is on the horizon and humanoid robots with the mental agility of Watson and memories the size of Google will soon be walking among us.  Scientists are already using Cochlear implants to bring hearing to the deaf.  Using them to increase memory, intelligenceand control machines by thoughtis just around the corner as we race to what Ray Kurzweil calls The Singularity.  This will be a time when as Kurzweil puts it, “the next step in this inexorable evolutionary process: the union of human and machine, in which the knowledge and skills embedded in our brains will be combined with the vastly greater capacity, speed, and knowledge-sharing ability of our creations.”

What does all this mean?  Do we redefine life from something like, “the condition that distinguishes animals and plants from inorganic matter, including the capacity for growth, reproduction, functional activity, and continual change preceding death.” to sentient to include AI?

Do we become cyborgs as our machines become alive?  Are we close to becoming gods who create life and virtual worlds?

While all of this technology is amazing and wondering about it and its future impact is entertaining it all reminds me of the story of the scientist who told God, “You’re not so much. We have now mastered the techniques for creating life in the laboratory.”

God answered, “Isn’t that interesting.”

Feeling as if God had taken his brazen assertion lightly the scientist said, “I challenge you to a contest.  Let’s just see who can create life the fastest.”

God answered “All right let’s go.”  With that God reached down and picked up some mud and began fashioning it into a man.  The scientist filled with pride took his test tubes and started pouring his potions back and forth when God looked at him and said, “Hey!  Get your own mud!”

Man proposes and God disposes.  We think we are on the verge of taking the place of God in our own evolution.  Many live as if all of this here is all that there is anywhere.

Yet the unanswered questions outweigh the answers.  There are two things: Dark Matter and Dark Energy that scientists tell us makes up the vast majority of everything yet is un-seeable and unknowable.  The Big Bang is now accepted as fact by all scientists yet none can tell us what was before the Big bang or how the Big Bang could have banged.

Faith has the answers.  Dark Energy and Dark Matter are the power of God and the spiritual world.  One upholds us and one surrounds us.  And as far as the Big bang goes, in the beginning God said, “Let there be.”

If the mad rush towards the future leaves you shocked, if the idea of machines that are smarter than humans or of humans that are as smart as machines leaves you turned off instead of turned on don’t worry be happy.  There is joy unspeakable and a life filled with glory right at your fingertips.  Accept Jesus as your Savior, turn from the world and embrace the all-encompassing reality of a spiritual life and find the peace you have always longed for.

Even the godless Communists turned to God when they were on the ropes.Don’t wait for the bell to ring before you surrender and win.  Jesus is the Rock that doesn’t roll and the shelter in the face of the storm.

We are standing on the edge of the abyss and the bell will toll soon.  When we wonder for whom the bell tolls let’s rejoice together as children of God united in the Holy Spirit through faith in our risen Savior Jesus Christ.   For if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Can Average Americans Save America?

Can Average Americans Save America?

By JB Williams:
For many years now, Americans have watched their once great nation in steady decline. The truth is the end of American supremacy in the world started over a hundred years ago, in or around 1913 during the Wilson administration.
The Federal government granted itself the unconstitutional power to directly tax individual wages in the 16th Amendment and ended States sovereignty, representation and Rights in the 17th Amendment. They established the Federal Reserve banking system and set up what we now know as the I.R.S., a brown shirt enforcement agency for wealth-redistribution in America.
FDR launched the nation into an endless spiral of social justice spending that would soon bankrupt a country that was once the most free, peaceful and prosperous society on earth.
A hundred years later, we barely recognize what little is left of our Constitutional Representative Republic. Our justice system that was once based upon the equal application of Constitutional Law has been systematically replaced by ill-advised concepts of “social justice” – “justice in terms of the distribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges within a society – individuality gives way to the struggle for social justice.” (aka Marxism)
By 2008, American society had decayed to the point in history when the people were more interested in what government can do for them personally in the way of free-stuff, paid for by the hard work and sacrifice of others, than in freedom. The nation was ready for hope and change, or so they thought.
The people were so bamboozled over Marxist concepts of “diversity” that they elected a president solely on the basis of his skin color, without any regard for the fact that the individual had a totally blank résumé void of any bona fide background or personal achievement, but full of anti-American associates, many of them criminals and known terrorists. The people focused entirely on “making history” by electing “the first black president” without even noticing that the man wasn’t even “black.”
Six long years later, that historical figure has indeed made history as the worst political administration in U.S. history and the administration most responsible for the final demise of freedom, liberty, prosperity and American supremacy, not to mention the total destruction of our constitutional checks and balances, constitutional law and the entire Bill of Rights.
The people now know what kinds of hope and change political leftists had in store for America when they illegally seized unbridled political power in 2008. They meant anti-American change and global hopes at the direct expense of American sovereignty, security and prosperity.
Now the people wonder what they can do about it. Can average Americans really save their Constitution, their Bill of Rights and freedom at this late hour? Do they have the power to overcome the corrupt anti-American federal juggernaut they have allowed to seize control over every aspect of American life?
Before discussing what average Americans can do to save their constitutional republic, I need to state for the record who isn’t going to save our republic.
The Oval Office occupant is not going to save our Republic. The current occupant is doing all he can to destroy our Republic and no matter who occupies the office next, they will not turn this country around on a dime and save our Republic. So far, there isn’t even anyone in the 2016 race who would, even if they could.
Congress will not save our Republic. There is no longer any significant difference between congressional Republicans and Democrats. In fact, I think all current members of congress can rightfully be titled “Republicrats” today. Congress has abdicated its constitutional authority to both the Executive and Judicial branches and they act as nothing more than an impotent submissive global interest organization now. Congress has not carried out any of its duties since the 2008 election.
The Judicial branch is likely the most destructive branch in terms of our Constitutional Republic, especially under the leadership of Eric Holder. Our judiciary has used the unconstitutional practice of “making law” via judicial fiat to undermine, redefine and subvert to rule of constitutional law for decades now. The judiciary is the true enemy of “justice” in America and the author and enforcement branch for “social justice.”
Our Military will not save our Republic. The U.S. Military operates under the command of our Commander-in-Chief, currently Barack Hussein Obama. The Joint Chiefs direct all branches of the military and the JC’s follow the commands of the President. Because it is perceived that we still have a constitutional republic of, by and for the people, who “elected Barack Obama by democratic process,” there will be no military “coup d’état” to remove the worst administration in history.
The police will not save our Republic. All Federal law enforcement agencies and officers also operate under the command of the President and the Attorney General. Further, they are all under the direction of the Department of Homeland Security now, including State, County and local law enforcement. All levels of law enforcement have been “militarized” since January 2009. All have been trained to look for and thwart “domestic terrorists” (defined as those who own a pocket constitution, a Christian Bible, a copy of the Bill of Rights and hold “legal” citizenship,) while protecting the “constitutional rights” of illegal invaders, known criminals and Islamic terrorists.
Tea Party efforts to save the Republic through partisan political election gains did not work in 2010 or 2012 and they will not work in 2014 or 2016 either. The simple truth is that election outcomes are being determined long before the elections take place. Democrats and Libertarians are controlling the outcome of Republican primaries so that no matter who wins in the fall general elections, the globalist agenda stays on track after every election.
State governments will not save the Republic. Below, you will see what state governments must do to save their own state, in order to play any role at all in saving the Constitutional Republic. In short, any state which is unwilling to save itself through proper constitutional measures will be part of the problem, not part of the solution.
The so-called militias cannot save the Republic. They are too few, too scattered, too divided by individual agendas, out-manned and face overwhelming forces. They can die for the cause of freedom, but they cannot alter the course of history today.
So, only the average American can save the Constitutional Republic today and they will work against all three branches of the Federal government, most State governments, all Federal, State and local law enforcement agencies and the mass media in that effort. They may even face their own military at some point in the process, if they do not act swiftly and decisively and very soon.
What can (must) the people do?
Unless the people are going to hold existing public sector criminals fully accountable for their anti-American actions, they are wasting their time to try anything else. At the end of the day, career political criminals must be held fully accountable under the Rule of Constitutional Law or there is no such thing as Constitutional Law. It makes no difference who we elect if we are not going to hold them accountable for what they do after the election.
For this reason, suing the most impeachable administration in history is nothing more than a cheap poorly vailed attempt to run from responsibility, whether you are an elected member of congress or an average American. The Obama administration MUST be impeached before the November 2014 elections, or they will be allowed to complete a second unconstitutional anti-American term, forever altering Article II of the U.S. Constitution via setting illegal precedence.
There is only ONE right way to impeach the Obama administration. People talking about impeachment without working to advance proper Articles of Impeachment are partisan shills. The Obama administration must be impeached and correctly. After the November elections will be too late.
If you can’t save your state, you cannot save the nation. Law suits filed by state governments against the Federal administration are also cheap cowardly efforts to evade the responsibility of State governments to uphold and defend States’ Rights and protect the citizens from a Federal government which has become tyrannical in nature and destructive of both freedom and liberty.
There is only ONE viable way for any State government to enforce the 10th Amendment rights of the state and the 9th Amendment rights of their citizens. That way is to pass the State level Balance of Powers Act and use the State legislature to identify and challenge the unconstitutional acts of the federal government. Law suits in federally controlled courts will not solve the problem. State level enforcement of State and Individual Rights can save this Republic, state-by-state.
The people must vote, as the democratic process is like a muscle that once atrophied and lost, will never be regained. However, the people can no longer rely on this process as a means of solving our problems. The system is far too corrupted. They cannot afford to play 3rd party fantasy games at this critical moment in history. They must use all available avenues to remove the worst criminals from power at every opportunity. All 3rd party efforts only dilute that effort.
The people MUST lay down their individual agendas and UNITE in force to make the above items a reality, or there will be nothing they can do to save the Republic after the November 2014 elections.
Can average Americans save their Constitutional Republic at this late date? The answer is YES!
Will they? – is a question yet to be answered. However, they only have between now and November to carry out the above actions. If they fail to do it, November 2014 will mark the final end of the Constitutional Republic, if we can even make it to November. The situation is that critical now!
There is nothing else that matters in the grand scheme of saving our Constitutional Republic at this time in history. If the people decide to wait, or waste time and resources on anything else, they will lose their Republic and their constitutionally protected way of life forever.
ONLY the average American can save the Constitutional Republic and they can only do it by taking the right corrective measures, making it personal, and working with others to make it a reality. We cannot beat this by joining it. We cannot win by waiting for anyone else to do it.
Like it or not, there is only ONE organization in America committed to carrying out these remedies at present. The parent organization is The United States Patriots Union. The Veterans Division of Patriots Union is Veteran Defenders of America and the Constitutional Law division is North American Law Center. If you are not with them yet, you are not yet united in tangible action!
The people are free to disagree…. At their own peril.
Foretold is forewarned!

An English Town Too Cowardly To Stop Hundreds Of Its Children From Being Raped

Hundreds of children have been systematically raped, beaten and sex trafficked in a northern English town for more than 12 years. And it is still going on, a government commissioned report says. The “appalling” revelations also expose cultural tensions and lack of communication between authorities and the town’s ethnic minorities that may have helped stop it. Social counselors saw evidence of sexual exploitation early on, but turned a blind eye, according to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Exploitation in Rotherham. The city’s government recently made the inquiry’s report available on its website. And so the abuses amassed, which included gang rape and death threats at gunpoint. At least 1,400 cases of abuse went on between 1997 and 2013 — a conservative estimate, the report says. This year, specialist investigators are handling 51 cases. Other teams are looking at additional cases.

Here it Comes – 11 jetliners ‘missing’ after Islamist takeover of Libya Airport

Eleven commercial jets have reportedly been stolen in recent weeks in Libya, and Western intelligence agencies have begun warning they could be used in terror attacks on 9/11, the anniversary of the devastating Osama bin Laden-orchestrated attacks on New York and Washington that left nearly 3,000 dead.

According to a report in the Free Beacon, the jets were taken by Islamist militias in Libya, and reports distributed within the U.S. government “included a warning that one or more of the aircraft could be used in an attack … on the date marking the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks…”

One official in the report assembled by the highly respected Bill Gertz said, “There are a number of commercial airliners in Libya that are missing. We found out on September 11 what can happen with hijacked planes.”

Gertz now is senior editor of the Free Beacon, but built his career during 27 years as reporter, editor and columnist with the Washington Times. He’s also authored six books and his online biography reveals the state-run Xinhua news agency in 2006 identified him as the No. 1 “anti-China expert” in the world.

His report about the missing jetliners notes authorities have a high level of concern because of the convergence of the cases of missing airplanes and the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks.

It also is just two years after the 9/11 terror attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, a scandal that still is reverberating through the Obama administration and threatening to become a game-changer for the 2014 elections.

Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed in that attack.

A State Department official declined comment, Gertz reported.

The officials quoted by Gertz said U.S. intelligence agencies now are trying to locate all the airplanes belonging to two Libyan airline companies, and they have not confirmed the aircraft theft, which reportedly happened after the takeover by terrorists of Tripoli International Airport in August.

“The state-owned Libyan Airlines fleet until this summer included 14 passenger and cargo jetliners, including seven Airbus 320s, one Airbus 330, two French ATR-42 turboprop aircraft, and four Bombardier CJR-900s,” the report said. “Libyan state-owned Afriqiyah Airways fleet is made up of 13 aircraft, including three Airbus 319s, seven Airbus 320s, two Airbus 330s, and one Airbus 340.”

The report blames Libyan Dawn, one of the terror organizations operating there, for the alleged thefts in late August.

Following the warnings from Western intelligence agencies, Tunisia halted flights from Tripoli, Sirte and Misrata because of the potential the jets would appear in suicide missions, the report said.

And Egypt halted flights to and from Libya.

Gertz said military components from Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and Egypt were put on a higher level of alert.

Libya has been an uncontrolled disaster area since the Obama administration engineered the removal in 2011 of strongman Moammar Gadhafi from office. His departure left terror factions struggling for control as the nation plunged into chaos.

Both Libyan Dawn and another group called Ansar al-Shariah were declared by Libya’s parliament to be terror groups. The report said Ansar al-Shariah reportedly has surface-to-air missiles, anti-aircraft guns and rocket-propelled grenades, among other weapons.

Abderrahmane Mekkaoui, a Moroccan military expert, explained to Al Jazeera broadcasting that “credible intelligence” reports say the jets are intended for use by a group called Masked Men Brigade for attacks on the 9/11 date.

Gertz reported that a counterterrorism expert, Sebastian Gorka, explained the events that could develop with the stolen jets.

“The first would be how commercial airliners were used on Sept. 11, 2001, literally turning an innocent mode of mass transit into a super-high precision guided missile of immense potency,” he said.

“The second tactic could be to use the airframe with its civilian markings as a tool of deception to insert a full payload of armed terrorists into a locale that otherwise is always open to commercial carriers,” he said.

Gertz’ report noted the planes themselves become an agent of destruction.

“Who needs ballistic missiles when you have passenger planes?” asked Michael Rubin, of the American Enterprise Institute. “Even empty, but loaded up with fuel, they can be as devastating.”


Do We Have A Sociopath In The White House?

by Wayne Allyn Root

Hi. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Things aren’t going so well for America. There was major rioting all week in Ferguson, Missouri. There are still no jobs for middle-class Americans. Our southern border is still under siege. Obamacare is a disaster. Our veterans are dying at the hands of the incompetent VA. ISIS threatens to create a radical Muslim empire in the Middle East. And the world (from Israel to Ukraine to Syria to Iraq) is literally on fire.
Where is our President? On vacation… again.
This time, even the media are whispering. “Where is Obama? Isn’t his indifference to the problems of America and disconnect from reality, strange?” The simple answer is, “No.” This is how he’s been his entire adult life. It all started at Columbia University.
I believe we have a president who is an arrogant, egomaniacal sociopath.
Here is the definition of a “sociopath” from the Urban Dictionary online:
A person with antisocial personality disorder. Probably the most widely recognized personality disorder. A sociopath is often well liked because of their charm and high charisma, but they do not usually care about other people. They think mainly of themselves and often blame others for the things that they do. They have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly. They seldom feel guilt or learn from punishments.
My new book “The Murder of the Middle Class” presents the story in vivid detail. I was Obama’s college classmate at Columbia University, Class of 1983. I’ve been trying to tell America about Obama’s “problem” for seven long years now.
By college, a person’s personality, attitude and behavior are fairly well set. That’s why Obama’s Columbia days tell us so much about his behavior as president today. Where was he? Why does virtually no one from Columbia remember the future president of the United States? Why did the future president make an impression on none of his classmates?
Things rarely change. Thirty years ago, my classmate was rarely seen. Thirty years later, he rarely is seen conducting the business of the presidency. No one should be surprised.
What do I know about Obama at Columbia? Nothing. I never met him. As I’ve reported countless times to the media, Obama and I shared the same major: political science. We were both pre-law. It was a small class (about 700 students). The political science department was even smaller (maybe 150 students) and was a close-knit group. I thought I knew or had at least met everyone in this department.
But I never met Obama. Never even heard of him. Worse, neither did anyone I knew at Columbia. Think about that. Our classmate is president of the United States. Yet he didn’t leave a footprint.
In all my years of publicly questioning Obama’s absence at Columbia, I know of only two possible sightings. Two people called me claiming to be classmates. One caller claimed that he thinks he saw Obama once in a bar across from Columbia blowing smoke rings. Another called to say he thinks he saw Obama in the cafeteria at Barnard (our sister school for women only).
Two possible Obama sightings in 30 years: one smoking in a bar, the other at a women’s cafeteria. Isn’t that the perfect guy to run your country?
Obama defenders and the media (I know; they’re the same) interpreted what I said wrongly. I never said Obama didn’t attend Columbia. I said he was never in class, perpetually absent, missing in action. Sound familiar?
Obama acts exactly the same today as president as he did as a student at Columbia. Obama has always believed that Obama is brilliant and better than the rest of us. He’s arrogant and detached. He thinks he’s too smart to have to actually do the work the rest of us do. He’s above it all. Why attend class? “What could someone as smart as me possibly learn in class?”
It’s the same story today. Obama rarely attends meetings, even with his cabinet. He’s too busy playing golf, taking vacations or attending fundraisers.
This past February, Obama skipped two national security meetings focused on Russia’s potential invasion of Ukraine. He was too busy to attend a meeting about a crisis that could lead to World War III.
Even if Obama wasn’t concerned about Russia invading Ukraine, certainly he finds America’s jobs crisis important, right? Wrong. Obama never bothered to convene one meeting of his own Jobs Council in a full year, even with unemployment and underemployment at crisis levels.
Even more remarkable, within two weeks of that story, Obama closed down his Jobs Council — with 12 million Americans still counted officially as unemployed.
So what is so important in Obama’s life? Golf and fundraisers., the nonpartisan fact checker, confirmed our President golfed often and attended 106 fundraisers during just a six-month period wherein he could find no time, or interest, to attend even one meeting of his own Jobs Council.
And where was Obama the night of the Benghazi attack? Both Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Martin Dempsey testified Obama was absent that night.
Four brave Americans died while Obama was “absent.” What could be so important that Obama never checked in to ask a question or discuss a rescue attempt from 5:30 p.m. until the next morning (when everyone was dead)?
The track record is consistent. Just like his college days, Obama believes he’s too gifted to do the actual work of president. He’s just too busy to have to worry about the plight of unemployed Americans. He’s even too important to worry about young black males killing each other in Chicago, or being shot by police, or serious unrest, rioting and looting in Ferguson, Missouri. He’s got more important things to do than stay in touch as a U.S. embassy is under attack. Hamas is lobbing missiles into Israel. Who cares? “I’ve got a golf game in the morning.”
To be exact, Obama has played 186 rounds of golf and counting versus Bush’s 24.
Does Obama ever work? Sure. Every once in a while he throws a “Beer Summit.”
Nothing much has changed since Columbia University. Not Obama’s personality, not his attitude, not his behavior. Either Obama is detached and just couldn’t care less or he just doesn’t like America very much, so he’s purposely fiddling while Rome burns. Or like O.J. Simpson, maybe he’s searching for the answers to all of these terrible crises in the holes and sand traps of America’s greatest golf courses.
This is most certainly “The Murder of the Middle Class.” And the death of America.
I believe we have a sociopath in the White House.
I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. See you next week. God bless America.
