The Player Hater's Journal For July 31, 2015
My focus on this evening's show will be these three articles that have been published this past week:
The Summer 2015 edition of the quarterly journal, The Social Contract, just published my in-depth analysis of the nexus between immigration and national security and the threat of terrorism, “The 9/11 Commission Report and Immigration: An Assessment, Fourteen Years after the Attacks.”
On June 28, 2015 FrontPage Magazine published my article, “Illegal Aliens Are Not 'Law Abiding' - The vital importance of America's immigration and inspection laws.”
On June 27, 2015 CAPS (Californians for Population Stabilization) posted my article, “Heroin Epidemic: The Real Metric for Determining Border Security.”
We will also consider what Rick Perry had to say when he appeared on Fox & Friends this week and was asked about his position on “in-state tuition for illegal aliens.”

The Christine Upchurch Show. Anything is Possible with guest Krysta Gibson. Join Christine and author, spiritual teacher and publisher of The New Times and New Spirit Journal Krysta Gibson, as Krysta finally shares her life with us so we get to know the stories behind the woman. Yes, she was a nun. Yes, she counseled people on probation and parole. Yes, she worked with a serial killer who would have killed her if she had not followed her inner guidance. Yes, she bluffed her way past four men who did not have her best interests at heart. And, yes, she became a spiritual teacher and publisher. Listen in and learn more about her life and what it can mean to you!
The flesh is the life-lie that is in radical opposition to the way of the cross. The flesh way of being is all about "me." The me-centered life is rarely satisfying contrary to popular belief. Selfishness is a spiritual disease that may be terminal. We are beings that were made to glorify God and enjoy him forever, but that reality seems to have been forgotten. I have never seen or read a publication called 'Journal of Selfishness' nor 'Journal of Self Caused Misery,' but I have seen up close and from a distance the havoc of the flesh-lie. Jesus promises rest to those who bring their multiplied bundles of self-engendered and other-engendered miseries to him.

This Thursday, July 30th, 2015 at 3 p.m. PST on MetalSmith BenchTalk, we will be re-airing one of our favorite past episodes with guest Robert Liu, Editor Ornament Magazine.
About Robert: Robert Kung Shan Liu was born in Rome in 1938 and immigrated to the US from China after World War II with his mother and 4 siblings. Trained as an ethologist and ichthyologist, the Dr. Liu received his Ph.D. from the UCLA where he worked on experimental gerontology and immunology in the Dept. of Pathology, School of Medicine until 1975. Founder of the magazine "The Bead Journal" in 1974, Dr. Liu and his wife Carolyn L.E. Benesh are publishers and coeditors of its successor, "Ornament" since 1978.
Self-trained as a jeweler and photographer, he has written extensively on ancient, ethnic and contemporary personal adornment, as well as gerontology, ichthyology (Ichthyology [from Greek] is the branch of zoology devoted to the study of fish), animal behavior, military technology, and construction equipment. Liu started collecting and researching beads in 1972, in addition to designing jewelry that incorporated beads and other artifacts. In 1995 Dr. Liu wrote/published what is considered to be the most thorough resource on beads "Collectible Beads: A Universal Aesthetic". Check out his book on Amazon: http://bit.ly/7ORn5L.
