10/20/2017 I have added the following post because it is applicable to both Jews and non-Jews in terms of becoming more aware of and protecting one’s self from religious right cultism and evangelism: Jews for Judaism:  Challenge regarding Christian Missionaries, Cults Excerpt:  What is the Challenge of Missionaries and Cults? Let’s find out in this post.  Jews for Judaism is the only international, full- time counter-missionary, counter-cult, educational, outreach and counseling organization dedicated to countering the multi- million-dollar efforts of deceptive missionary and cult groups that target the Jewish community for conversion.  Here, from the Jews for Judaism counter-missionary Handbook, The Response to Jewish Missionaries, is a look at the challenge facing the Jewish Community. According to recent Gallup and Harris polls, there are over 70 million “born again” Christians in North America, many of whom are convinced that in order for Jesus to return, the Jewish people must first be converted to Christianity. Christian denominations such as the Southern Baptist Convention — which passed a resolution in 1996 targeting Jews for conversion — and the Assemblies of G- d, as well as countless other Christian groups worldwide, contribute more than $250 million annually to aggressively evangelize Jews. These evangelical Christians have established special “Hebrew Christian synagogues” to attract Jews. Such “synagogues” have grown in number from 20 to over 400 in the last twenty years. Recent police body camera information and input: The Verge:  Police body camera state secret. By Matt Stroud (06/12/2017) North Carolina, Louisiana, Kansas, and other states are writing laws to keep police videos out of public hands Excerpt:  This opaque state of affairs was not how body cameras were originally pitched. Body cameras have been available to police since at least 2007 when Steve Ward, a salesman for Taser International, broke off from the company, now known as Axon Enterprise. He then formed his own body camera company, Vievu. But body cameras weren’t considered a necessary police tool until the aftermath of Michael Brown’s killing by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014. 10/19/2017 From an email I received from Americans United this morning:  …breaking legal update from yesterday - and we're thrilled to announce that another federal court has blocked Trump's Muslim Ban 3.0 in response to a lawsuit filed by AU and allies on Oct 3.  Please sign our Religious Freedom Pledge to show your support!  Part of long 8 page summary of Timeline of CIA Detention and Interrogation Program September 11, 2001: Al Qaeda carries out terrorist attacks against the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. September 17, 2001: President Bush signs a classified covert action memorandum authorizing the CIA to detain terrorists. February 7, 2002: President Bush signs a memorandum stating that the Geneva Conventions do not apply to the global conflict with al Qaeda. March-April 2002: Abu Zubaydah is captured in Pakistan and transferred to CIA custody. He is interrogated jointly by FBI and CIA officers. June 2002: CIA officers place Abu Zubaydah in isolation for 47 days. The FBI never returns to the CIA interrogation site. August 1, 2002: The Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) issues two memoranda (one classified and one unclassified) concluding that the CIA’s proposed “enhanced interrogation techniques” did not violate the federal anti-torture statute. The classified memorandum addressed specific techniques, including waterboarding, for use on Abu Zubaydah. August 4-30, 2002: After a prolonged period of isolation, CIA interrogators subject Abu Zubaydah to near-constant coercive interrogation techniques, including the first application of waterboarding. September 2002: SSCI Chairman Bob Graham and Vice Chairman Richard Shelby are first briefed on the CIA interrogation program. (Later, Senators Pat Roberts and Jay Rockefeller are briefed when they become chairman and vice chairman.) November 2002: After being captured and detained by a foreign country, Abd alRahim al-Nashiri is transferred to CIA custody and transported to the same detention facility where Abu Zubaydah is located. Al-Nashiri is also subjected to 12/8/14 Page 2 of 8 the CIA’s coercive techniques, including waterboarding. (Interrogations during this period are videotaped.) November 2002: CIA detainee Gul Rahman dies while being held and interrogated by the CIA at a separate CIA detention facility from where Abu Zubaydah and alNashiri are held.

June 2004: OLC withdraws its unclassified August 1, 2002, memorandum containing a legal analysis of the anti-torture statute. While the OLC begins to draft a new memorandum, the CIA continues to interrogate detainees in its custody. August-September 2004: OLC issues letters to the CIA advising that the use of the CIA’s so-called enhanced interrogation techniques against specific, named detainees does not violate the federal anti-torture statute. December 30, 2004: OLC issues a revised, unclassified memorandum that supersedes the withdrawn unclassified August 1, 2002 memorandum 10/15/2017 about l0:15 am - 10:32 am mst; later partial editing and additions I am repeating the link supplied earlier to The Daily Banter, and am adding an excerpt from the article regarding concerns over Salon  being a Trojan horse for the religious right.  My purpose here is to try to start tuning in better to this sort of thing in general, whether it is coming from the religious right or organizations like an Obama sponsored black (and other minorities) rights group, Black Panthers, Nation of Islam or La Raza.  Whether Obama is linked to the more radical groups or not, there are signs he might be, but we do need to use caution about fake news from white religious right groups in this regard.  My personal bias comes from psychic intuition that he is indeed into something negative in terms of the broader interests of the United States. There is yet another alternative to the far right and far left discussed above.  Concerns about it are voiced by those groups who believe in a Jewish Conspiracy in which high occultism lurks behind the world’s religions and many other things.  No matter the source, I think we need to be on alert.  We need to consider various possibilities, and to recognize warning bells or red flags as discussed in the article in below by Ben Cohen.  I have placed the link on the System Abuse/Media-Alt. News section of this website. The Daily Banter: Salon-com-the real website is operated-by far-right-hate-group. By Ben Cohen (01/16/2015) Excerpt:  The Daily Banter can exclusively reveal that the liberal website is actually a fraudulent entity run by an extremist right wing hate group in Iowa with links to the Koch brothers and Rupert Murdoch.  After an extensive investigation and an in-depth look into their inner workings, financial history, and roster of reporters, it has become clear to Banter staff that the supposedly liberal site has an ulterior motive. Rather than promoting liberalism, it appears that Salon is in fact a Trojan horse funded with the explicit objective of ruining liberalism in America to pave the way for the religious right.  Excerpt from a post found in this article seems to have spurred the author to do more research on Salon:  I'm beginning to suspect that Salon is a false Flag operation conducted by Roger Ailes to make liberals look like stark staring maniacs. I also want to keep at top-of-mind awareness Mormon cult driven towns and cities in the southwestern United States, such as the one that was in the news several years ago - I think it was something like Colorado City in Arizona - that type of thing might occur in places like Farmington, New Mexico, although there are mixed far right groups dominating the area including Protestants, Catholics, Seventh Day Adventists as well as Mormons.  In their far right orientations, they might be both working together as well as within their formal religious sectors.  Part of it will be a Dominionist and Millenialist attitude coming from both men and women which includes:  women are naturally sinful and need to humble themselves before men and act like brides of Jesus; men are the natural leaders of the home and pack, women are less intellectually endowed, emotional, dirty, weak, sinful and not useful (excess baggage, best used as holes); the world, in its sins, is coming to an end and stragglers need to be gathered up and saved (shamed into salvation, put through a mind control program, etc.; saving someone includes getting that person to defer to both male leaders and religious female clucking hens who have a sense of duty and purpose to get other women in line).  10/13/2017 The Daily Banter: Salon-com-the real website is operated-by far-right-hate-group.

This might or might not be connected to the issue discussed below. The Balance:  All about Tasers and Electronc Control Devices Unlike the fictional model, the actual Taser doesn't fire bolts of electricity or shoot through walls without leaving holes. Though the technology is advanced, the concept is simple. When fired, the Taser projects two metal darts, called probes, by electrically charging a cartridge of compressed gas. The probes remain connected to the device through thin copper wires that carry an electric charge to the target.  The probes often enter the target's skin, though they can be just as effective if they become lodged in clothing as long as they remain close to the body. Contact is far less important than probe spread. The wider the spread, the more effective the incapacitation. Electro Muscular Incapacitation: As the probes travel toward a subject, they spread. When the probes reach their target, they send electric pulses between each other, which disrupt neuron communications between the subjects' muscles and the brain. When this happens, most subjects' muscles become incredibly tense.  The net effect is that the target subjects become incapable of engaging muscle groups for the duration of the charge cycle. This effect is known as neuromuscular incapacitation. As soon as the cycle is ended, however, the effect goes away. 10/08/2017  8:34 am mst; added below original notes for the day: 10:57 am mst; 12:47 pm mst The Dark Side of Zionism: The Quest for Security through Dominance (2009) Baylis Thomas Excerpt:  The Dark Side of Zionism: Israel's Quest for Security through Dominance arises out of the scholarship of the "new historians," a group of mostly Israeli scholars who have uncovered a history widely ignored in the popular media. Baylis Thomas argues that both the early Zionists and, later, the Israelis sought their security through the military domination of the indigenous Arab population of Palestine. This strategy required both avoiding negotiations with the Palestinian-Arabs and provoking the weak Arab states-opposed to the Israeli takeover of Palestine-into entering wars they would lose. The role of British imperial power was crucial in this early history, as was the later U.S. support of Israel, right or wrong. Thomas explores the larger context of this history in chapters on colonization, hegemony, weapons diplomacy, terrorism, nationalism, religion, Zionism, and prospects for resolution of the conflict.   While students and scholars of Middle Eastern studies and international relations will find this book valuable, it is intended for the intelligent general reader who is curious about current events yet puzzled about the Palestinian- Israeli conflict. Israel's national identity, founded on the memory of being victims of the Holocaust, focuses on current events that seem consistent with the past, even as the nation uses force to thwart Palestinian national aspirations. The Dark Side of Zionism argues that peace for both Israelis and Palestinians can only come if Israel relinquishes military rule. 6057969?ie=UTF8&*Version*=1&*entries*=0 added 10:57 am mst: New York Post: How Obama is funding the anti-Trump resistance. By Paul Sperry (09/23/2107) Excerpt:  The Obama administration’s massive shakedown of Big Banks over the mortgage crisis included unprecedented back- door funding for dozens of Democratic activist groups who were not even victims of the crisis. At least three liberal [see below]nonprofit organizations the Justice Department approved to receive funds from multibillion- dollar mortgage settlements were instrumental in killing the ObamaCare repeal bill and are now lobbying against GOP tax reform, as well as efforts to rein in illegal immigration. An estimated $640 million has been diverted into what critics say is an improper, if not unconstitutional, “slush fund” fed from government settlements with JPMorgan Chase and Co., Citigroup Inc. and Bank of America Corp., according to congressional sources.  The payola is potentially earmarked for third-party interest groups approved by the Justice Department and HUD without requiring any proof of how the funds will be spent. Many of the recipients so far are radical leftist organizations who solicited the settlement cash from the administration even though they were not parties to the lawsuits, records show.“During the Obama administration, groups committed to ‘revolutionary social change’ sent proposals and met with high-level HUD and Justice Department officials to try to get their pieces of the settlement pie,” Cause of Action Institute vice president Julie Smith told The Post. Some of the chosen beneficiaries are now actively militating against the Trump administration and its policies, including: THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF LA RAZA: The Hispanic-rights group strenuously protested the Republican-led “skinny” repeal of the Affordable Care Act after receiving at least $1.5 million from the Obama regime’s bank settlement funds, congressional researchers say. The notoriously radical organization, which advocates on behalf of illegal immigrants, argued the Trump proposal would have a “harmful impact” on the Hispanic community, including stripping potentially “8 million Latinos” of medical coverage….Other two NATIONAL URBAN LEAGUE  NATIONAL COMMUNITY REINVESTMENT COALITION added: 12:47 pm mst: MSN:  Iran Warns USA against imposing furthur sanctions AAt4yR4?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp Excerpt:  Iran warned the United States against designating its Revolutionary Guards Corp as a terrorist group and said U.S. regional military bases would be at risk if further sanctions were passed…"As we've announced in the past, if America's new law for sanctions is passed, this country will have to move their regional bases outside the 2,000 km range of Iran's missiles," Guards' commander Mohammad Ali Jafari said, according to state media…The Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) are Iran's most powerful internal and external security force. The Quds Force, the IRGC's foreign espionage and paramilitary wing, and individuals and entities associated with the IRGC are on the US list of foreign terrorist organizations, but the organization as a whole is not.  Iran sees the Sunni Muslim militants of Islamic State as an existential threat to the Islamic Republic where the majority of the population are Shi'ites…On June 7, Islamic State claimed an attack on Tehran's parliament and the mausoleum of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic, killing 18 people. The Guards fired missiles at Islamic State bases in Syria on June 18 in response.  Guards commanders have framed their military involvement in Iraq and Syria, where they are fighting to support the government of President Bashar al-Assad, as a fight against Islamic State. Dozens of members of the Guards, including senior commanders, have been killed in Syria and Iraq.
