Carbon tax graphic

By Lynda Bryant-Work Two House Republicans have revived an old but ongoing issue and introduced a resolution condemning the idea of a carbon tax. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and West Virginia Rep. David McKinley filed H. CON. RES. 119 on April 28 saying a tax on carbon dioxide emissions would “be detrimental to American families and businesses and is not in the best interest of the United States.” McKinley and Scalise outlined the dangers to the American economy in the resolution stating a carbon tax would increase energy prices,…

Why North Korea Is Now Suddenly Adopting A Conciliatory Nuclear Posture

by Richard Cameron   The term “Hermit Kingdom” was coined in 1882, by William Elliot Griffis.  It has most frequently been used in reference to North Korea since the partition of Korea at the end of the Korean War – (although technically, there is only an armistice, not an actual peace agreement in place).  Hermit Kingdom, describes, to paraphrase the definition given in Wikipedia – any nation that has been walled off, either by force by a dictatorial regime or by collective assent, from the rest of the community of…

School Shootings Part Two – A Warning About Mishandling The Mental Health Component

photo of an informational display from the post war era, created by the Minnesota Mental Hygiene Society, touting the benefits to individuals and society of mental health treatment and counseling.

by Richard Cameron   In the first of this series on the mental health factors of school shooters, we examined the general outlines of the three main categories or psychological profiles of the (mostly) young men who commit these attacks.  In this follow up report, we’ll set forth the hazards of getting the public into a mindset of amateur diagnoses that could conceivably derail any successful program devised to assist those vulnerable individuals in need of professional counseling and treatment.  Before we do, however, I would just like to forward…

by Richard Cameron   With the most recent school shooting by Nikolas Cruz at the Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, a number of solutions are being considered – with added measures of gun control in the forefront. Whether, and to what extent additional gun control legislation will in any way address the problem, is debatable – and of course, as you have noticed, is being debated.  But in this first of a series of  reports we will focus on one of the other common denominators in the shootings. …

Quantum Physics of Prayer: Superstring Theory of Conclusions

by Oletta Branstiter Tap Into Omnipotent Energy Now that we know that we are God’s Thought, connected to Him, invited to respond to Truth in each moment, conscious of both Creator and creation, able to choose His will over our own, and called to a divine purpose, how then should we live? The pastor of the church I once attended liked to use the illustration of a tiny dot to signify our earthly life, and an endless line to describe eternity. “Live for the line”, he preached. Far from being…

Space X’s Falcon Heavy Mega Rocket Gets High Marks In Successful Cape Kennedy Launch

by Richard Cameron   SpaceX, the largest private rocket business in the world, today successfully launched it’s revolutionary Falcon Heavy rocket into space this afternoon from pad 39A at NASA’s Cape Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Quantum Physics of Prayer: Christ-Purpose

by Oletta Branstiter “Lucky” Number Seven Continuing with our consideration of the multi-dimensional power of prayer, and how this “superstring theory” connects us to the Creator, we arrive at the number seven. Light, multiplied to the power of seven (the greatest single prime number, representing the Christed, or perfected state), is purpose. Will, multiplied by the Light of the World, carries out the Creator’s purpose according to His omniscience, weaving His perfect will throughout eternity. This is the dimension that repairs the Superstring. Christ Yeshua is the Purpose ordained from…

Quantum Physics of Prayer: Will-Choice

by Oletta Branstiter Two Paths You Can Go By The Bible says Adam and Eve’s “eyes were opened” upon eating the forbidden fruit from the tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil (Genesis 3:7). All they had known until this time was goodness from the hand of God. Now they perceived that something was missing. They felt uncovered and estranged from God because they had yielded to the temptation of doubting the Word (spoken harmonic) of the Creator. Suddenly, their individuality was more perceptible than the symphonic tapestry of the…

Quantum Physics of Prayer: Self-Conscious

by Oletta Branstiter Omnipresent Consciousness “All the choir of heaven and furniture of earth, in a word all those bodies which compose the mighty frame of the world, have not any substance without the mind … so long as they are not actually perceived by me, or do not exist in my mind, or that of any other created spirit, they must either have no existence at all, or else subsist in the mind of some Eternal Spirit.” – George Berkeley, Idealist Philosopher By now, we realize that we exist…
