Romney Family Joins Hollywood fad of Adopting Black Babies..Join us as we speak to an Adoptee Survior, Dockothy Davis! *Last week former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney announced that he had a new addition to his family.
Romney posted a picture on Twitter with the caption,“ Our 22nd grandchild was officially adopted today: Kieran James Romney.”
The picture was of an adorable African American baby who was adopted by one of his sons.
Now here’s where things get interesting. Apparently the name Kieran means “little dark one” in Gaelic. The name is pretty common in Ireland, which translates to “black” or “dark.”
Mitt Romney, AKA Mr. 1% , has a lot of grand kids but you think he would at least be able to keep count and keep up. He announced on Twitter that his 22nd grandchild, Kieran James Romney, was officially adopted. Um, one problem. Back in July, Mitt Romney, tweeted that he and his wife welcomed their 22nd grandchild. Which is it Mitt?
"People immediately started speculating about what type of life he’s going to have growing up with the Romneys, who are known for being severely out of touch when it comes to the poor and minority communities. We should say a serious prayer for our little Kieran.
Join us tonight on The Gist of Freedom as we talk with Dockothy Davis. Mr. Davis will discuss, growing up as a foster child and then living with a white family in an exclusive white town.
These two verses establish our authority as men to have separate and equal station among the powers of the earth. It is from Scripture that we get the word “dominion” which is defined as “Sovereign or supreme authority; the power of governing and controlling.” Unalienable Rights cannot be taken or given away. We the People delegated “just powers” by our consent to institute the government of the United States to “secure these rights.” All political power is inherent in the People. We the People ARE the government. If there was no government WHO would perform the duties that were delegated to it? We the People would, right? And, if the People did not enumerate it, they reserved it to themselves. Therefore, if we did not give the power, we retained it. Once we gave it, we are subject to it and must abide in it. A Republican Form of Government is “Rule of Law”, not politics, religion, special interests and the like.
In September of 1787 the Continental Congress adopted the Constitution for the United States of America and submitted it back to the State Legislatures for ratification. So the supreme Law of the Land was not a work of just one political body (the Continental Congress/federal government but also required the approval (ratification) of at least nine of the thirteen original States for it to become Law. This was accomplished by June of 1788 when New Hampshire became the ninth State which gave the Constitution for the United States force and effect. By September of 1788 the Founders had passed a resolution to establish a seat of government, when to hold elections and the date that the Government of the United States would begin operations under the Constitution; March 4, 1789.
On this episode, we'll be talking to Dr. Chas Gant about the causes and solutions to addiction. Here are his initial thoughts to get us started...
"Over the years, various approaches to solving addictions have been tried with marginal success.
Historically, addiction was first thought to be a moral problem to be addressed by law enforcement. In the early 20th century, a psychological/psychoanalytic model was adopted, based on the poorly substantiated belief that addicts and alcoholics were simply medicating their emotional wounds.
Alcoholics Anonymous then emerged and achieved a modicum of success by promoting the 12-step philosophy, which bypasses immorality or psychological rationales as the cause, focusing instead on spirituality.
The psychopharmacological approach came next. It was based on the assumption that addiction is caused by a or Prozac deficiency in the brain. Substantial education and prevention efforts have also been made for decades.
For the most part, addictions are currently handled by some combination of these models, but with marginal success.
How can we do better? All of these approaches have made contributions, but none of them fully addresses the critical brain/body connection, so let’s explore the little known scientific facts about addiction.
The good news is, we now have the tools to break this hopeless cycle." Dr. Chas

On Thursday January 22nd, 2015 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon
will present a discussion on Hermetic Magical Ethics. This will be
somewhat controversial in that we will examine the ethical aspects of
Hermetic philosophy in comparison to Christianity and other Gnostic
variations including Crowley's Thelema and Golden Dawn Rosicrucianism.
We will also question the merits of egalitarian collectivism compared to
the American/Masonic work ethic and personal responsibility standards.
We will review our newly adopted Code of Conduct for members of our
magical lodges and explain some of the reasons for establishing these
guidelines. So if you want to know how well-behaved and nice to each
other magicians ought to be, tune in and we will give you our Golden Rules.
Can you be "holy" and "hotep" at the same time?
There is no doubt that Christianity is a driving force in the melanin community. History demands its respect as an ideology which counteracted the mental anguish and brutal forces of subordinancy and slavery. Our forefathers adopted, embraced, and cultivated this doctrine in order to secure strength in volatile times. As the conscious mind dissects the legacy of religion and its importance to our survival, it also recognizes various inconsistencies and incorrect respresentations of biblical images. Does this mean that the system as a whole is another agent of white supremacy, or is history so tainted that the truth will forever elude us? Can we reconcile our feelings of anger and reclaim the core beliefs that held our families together through one of the most despicable time periods in American history?
Let's dissect and build.
“Social networking” has replaced conventional methods of forming friendship. The computer and internet is more important than pen and paper. Polishing responses by e-mail removes the sincerity and replaces it with caution. Discussions of true feelings and the demand for respect is viewed as old-fashioned and “boring”. Videos of disrespectful children go “viral” and “twerking” is discussed as a “fashionable dance”. People who show sincerity are serious and truthful. Sincerity is necessary to unite communities and embrace humanity. Oprah Winfrey proved how hungry Americans are for the quality of being free from pretense, deceit, or hypocrisy. The world cried when Oprah cried, they talked about her vicissitudes and adopted her choices as her choices. Many say the “cult-like” influence of Oprah Winfrey came about because what she talked about appeared to come from the heart.
Too often, what usually passes for sincerity is only an artful pretense designed to win the confidence of others. Oh how easy it is to fake sincerity and how hard it is to be sincere. Steps to becoming more sincere: 1. Act the same way alone as you do when in the presence of others. This is the real you and this is the person that people will trust; 2. Do things out of the goodness of your heart.; don't seek a reward or do things to acquire things from people; 3. Don't do it or say it, unless you believe it from your heart. Avoid situations that require you to offer compliments or to express your opinions.Opening up to others about your feelings, motives and aspirations can cause some people to react in insincere ways and attempt to drag you down.
