    "A MORE SURE WORD OF PROPHECY"

    in Christianity

    “The government under which Jesus lived was corrupt and oppressive; on every hand were crying abuses,–extortion, intolerance, and grinding cruelty. Yet the Saviour attempted no civil reforms. He attacked no national abuses, nor condemned the national enemies. He did not interfere with the authority or administration of those in power. He who was our example kept aloof from earthly governments. Not because He was indifferent to the woes of men, but because the remedy did not lie in merely human and external measures. To be efficient, the cure must reach men individually, and must regenerate the heart. Not by the decisions of courts or councils or legislative assemblies, not by the patronage of worldly great men, is the kingdom of Christ established, but by the implanting of Christ’s nature in humanity through the work of the Holy Spirit. ‘As many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name: which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.’ John 1:12, 13.”((White, Ellen. The Desire of Ages, 1898, page 508)

    Hard Starboard Radio: The Weaponization Of Cultural Politics

    in Politics Conservative

    Do the Clintons even care about how their myriad scandals affect their public image?  They've never had to before, but they'd better start now; "The current notion that we must avoid hurting the feelings of anybody from the "right tribe," but the feelings of people of the "wrong tribe" are fair game is becoming oppressive; Lack of "investment" is NOT the problem in Baltimore; Baltimore, Charlie Hebdo, and the weaponization of cultural politics; Republicans acting in the spirit of Barbara Jordan?; and guess who's running away with Iowa?

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. Are the transgressions of the American government equal to the injustices inflicted upon us. ARE WE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES IN  only a different time with the same transgression of treason imposed on us by the Government, when these words were written by the White Establishment Government?  Can we derive  from the reading and citing of the Declaration of Independence any basis for our PROTEST violent or otherwise? If there is one iota of truth to the Establishment of the American Government against the British Crown then WE THE PEOPLE HAVE A RIGHT TO HAVE A TIME OF OUTRAGE!! A TIME OF CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE SO LETS EXAMINE THESE 


    1.)For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:


    2.)He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.


    3.)For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States In every stage of these 


    4.)Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. :" Teenaged boys outraged are  protesting now because  our men are dying at the hands of government troops in our neighborhood who are an oppressive force in our community with Racist Profiling of Black Men, while walking, driving, fleeing for their lives, killed with no provocation or reasonable cause, by the polic!! ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE!!!

    Spirit Journeys Radio Show with Rita Ricks

    in Self Help

    SPIRIT JOURNEYS radio introduces Khalid Moussa Foster, an academician, researcher and author with lots of knowledge and opinions.  He speaks his truth and that to me is BEING AUTHENTIC.  Our conversation promises to be lively as we touch on a variety of subjects such as race-class-gender, urban inequality, black masculinities, non-oppressive relationships etc.  Moussa’s journey to this point is quite intriguing and I look forward to hearing from him.

    Are men to blame for the struggles that women deal with?

    in Education

    With the rampant feminist talks and progressive movements, it has me thinking about what role men play in women's lives. Have men been "that" domineering and oppressive over the years, that women were forced to ask for equality? 


    In the case of single parent households, are men to blame for leaving those mother's alone with the kids? Are men the one's who sets the tone and shapes the image of what a man should be, to his children?


    In the case of romantic relationships, are men to blame for the relationship woes that women experience, due to men have treated them so badly?


    In the case of music and entertainment, are men to blame for the "B's" and "Hoes" content gaining so much popularity?


    Tune in to Darryel's Daily Dialogue tonight, "where positive words, manifest positive action."

    AUTHOR ROSEMARY BRACCO

    in Entertainment

    If centuries of sex, sin, violence, Romance and Heresy echoed within the walls of your childhood home, would you dare spill the secrets now solely in your possession?


    The Sins of Castel du Mont is based partly on Italian Folklore  passed down From generation to generation... secrets whispered from father to son, mother to daughter, until the day the author incredibly became the first legitimate child born within its infamous walls.


    In 1964, feeling the lure of the castle and the legends surrounding it, author Rosemary Bracco Greenbaum Kohler was drawn to her birthplace  to unravel the mysteries of the Castel du Mont. Conducting intensive interviews with only local citizens over eighty years old, the author collected the four epic tales artfully woven together into this monumental novel. The haunting stories surrounding The Castel were given to her in the dying dialect of Piedmontese.


    For centuries, The Castel has kept its secrets and for decades, these unorthodox accounts whispered from generation to generation simmered in translation until the time was ripe for the stories to be revealed…


    Legend has it that the occupants of the castel lived a life of notoriety and scandal. The Sins of Castel du Mont  is actually four interwoven stories based on the  research the author  collected and some of castel’s most memorable residents, including Bianca, the bride of an oppressive and cruel count, Clara and dante, victims of an indecent and obscene priest, and lovers, Roxanne and Father Claudio whose forbidden love was shocking not only because Father Claudio was a member of the clergy but because it was under the dispassionate eye of Roxanne’s womanizing husband. 


    For Centuries, The Castel has kept it’s secrets. For decades these unorthodox accounts simmered in translation until the time was ripe for the enigma to be revealed.
