Phony Impeachment

I really hope we can fix this, Donald Trump is fighting phony impeachment. The media is brainwashing our youth.

 

I just wanted to comment about this backlash over Sofia Richie’s Instagram post… I don’t even know her… However – read the comment below of why I feel she said that.

 

Sofia Richie is facing backlash over her latest Instagram post.
“Santa Ana winds- messy bun 🙆🏼‍♀️,” the 21-year-old captioned the images on Tuesday. Her remark was deemed “tone deaf” because of the raging California wildfires.

That is what our society has done to the new generation. They don’t care. You want them to care? It’s gonna take war. Don’t be too hard on them, they are just a product of our degeneration of values in America, to the selfishness and the removal from God.
They are valuable, but that idea has been shrunk. Now it is – dime a dozen. Specifically to California youth, and my opinion is, it will have you crying in 12 years.
The hope is Trump stays in Office till 2024 and the next President is a old independent who brings back the core values of previous generations, and we need to start reversing Du-Pont and the last 100 years of chemical energy environmental destruction.
Nylon was a terrible invention. Did you know you cannot get it off the planet after it is created? This girl being breathtakingly dumb is the tip of a piece of sand on the beach.

NATO Abandons Ally Turkey

There are many things happening in the world.

I support Donald J Trump.

What was the reason, why Obama stripped the United States Military? Was there a reason? What did they have planned?

This article will explain it all – since now Russian forces are on combat alert after Turkey is being released from being a NATO ally..

This might set off some dominoes.

Elite Russian Airborne Troops Go On Combat Alert After NATO Abandons Its Own Ally Turkey

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

A tersely worded new Ministry of Defense (MoD) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that an elite parachute battalion from the 137th Guards Airborne Regiment under the command of Russian Airborne Forces (VDV) has been ordered to full combat alert status and given 24-hours to begin inter-operability training with special commando forces from the 38th Guards Air Assault Brigade of the Armed Forces of Belarus—all of whom will conduct their combat operations with long-range heavy-lift Il-76MD aircraft and Yak-130 fighter protection aircraft designed to insert into combat Mi-8 troop transport and Mi-24 gunship helicopters in wartime conditions—a combat order issued by President Putin under his Article 87 authority as Commander-In-Chief—and whose statement of fact in asserting this wartime authority warns

Turkey may not be able to contain militants from the Islamic State terror group (outlawed in Russia) active in northern Syria while conducting a military operation in the region”—a grave situation Turkey has been placed in by its own North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) who are not only refusing to come to the aid of their ally, calls are now shockingly being made to kick Turkey out of this Western military alliance all together.

[Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]

According to this report, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization is an international alliance that consists of 29 member states from North America and Europe—whose most powerful member is the United States and its 2,206,350 troops—and sees its second most powerful member Turkey having 890,700—all of whom are bound to the collective defense of one another under their treaty’s Article 5 provisions—which has only been invoked once in history after the 11 September 2001 terrorists attacks on America.

In October-2015, this report continues, the Obama-Clinton Regime caused the United States to became a deliberate, direct combatant against the Syrian government without their having been attacked—and though never invoking Article 5, dragged with them into this internal civil war conflict many of its NATO allies—an invasion of a sovereign nation that remains as illegal now as it was when the Americans first invaded.

As to why the Obama-Clinton Regime illegally invaded Syria, this report details, was actually revealed by NATO Supreme Commander US General Wesley Clark shortly after the 9/11 attacks on America—and who beyond shockingly stated:

About ten days after 9/11, I went through the Pentagon and I saw Secretary Rumsfeld and Deputy Secretary Wolfowitz.

I went downstairs just to say hello to some of the people on the Joint Staff who used to work for me, and one of the generals called me in.

He said, “Sir, you’ve got to come in and talk to me a second.

I said, “Well, you’re too busy.”

He said, “No, no.

He says, “We’ve made the decision we’re going to war with Iraq.”  This was on or about the 20th of September.

I said, “We’re going to war with Iraq?  Why?

He said, “I don’t know.”  He said, “I guess they don’t know what else to do.

So I said, “Well, did they find some information connecting Saddam to al-Qaeda?

He said, “No, no.

He says, “There’s nothing new that way. They just made the decision to go to war with Iraq.

He said, “I guess it’s like we don’t know what to do about terrorists, but we’ve got a good military and we can take down governments.

And he said, “I guess if the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem has to look like a nail.

So I came back to see him a few weeks later, and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan.

I said, “Are we still going to war with Iraq?

And he said, “Oh, it’s worse than that.”  He reached over on his desk.  He picked up a piece of paper.  And he said, “I just got this down from upstairs” — meaning the Secretary of Defense’s office — “today.

And he said, “This is a memo that describes how we’re going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.

I said, “Is it classified?

He said, “Yes, sir.

I said, “Well, don’t show it to me.

And I saw him a year or so ago, and I said, “You remember that?

He said, “Sir, I didn’t show you that memo!  I didn’t show it to you!

As to why the United States planned to start endless wars throughout the entire Middle East they could never hope, or even come close to winning, as they would have to mobilize an army of tens-of-millions of soldiers to win such a conflict that rivals World War II, this report notes, MoD analysts began noticing that at the same time the United States was expanding its wars around the Middle East, it was at the same time drastically cutting the budget of its military forces fighting in these endless wars—most especially under the Obama-Regime who gutted their nation’s entire military—and by the time President Trump took power in January-2017, saw only three of the US Army’s 58 brigade combat teams ready to fight53% of the US Navy’s aircraft unable to flythe US Air Force being 723 fighter pilots short—and the US Marine Corps needing 3,000 more troops before it could even think of fighting—and worst of all, Trump reporting that his generals told him not to start any more wars because they were out of ammunition.

American people kept from knowing that the socialist Obama-Clinton Regime effectively nearly destroyed the entire US military.

Unbeknownst to the American people as to why the Obama-Clinton Regime was destroying their own nation’s once all-powerful military, this report explains, was instantly understood by anyone knowing Russian history—as once Russia’s military forces were destroyed in the needless and foolish World War I—there was no one left to defend the Motherland when radical socialist-communist forces staged their revolution that enslaved Russia and its peoples for the next 74 years—a grim fate scheduled to repeated in America once socialist leader Hillary Clinton took power—but who was met by a force called Donald Trump who defeated Clinton and her socialist forces—and who, on 12 December 2017, signed his first defense budget giving his military forces a staggering near $700 billion—on 10 December 2018 signed his second defense budget giving his military forces another $716 billion—which, in turn, allowed the US Army to declare this past March-2019 that “more than half of the Army’s brigade combat teams have achieved top levels of preparedness”—allowed the US Navy last month to announce that they had surpassed their 80% aircraft readiness goal—but does see the US Air Force going backwards as they are now in desperate need of over 2,000 pilots—thus explaining why Trump is trying to end his nation’s endless wars before America becomes defenseless—and whose greatest threat is from within—and is why Trump vowed to his peoples that “America will never be a socialist country”.

With both Russia and United States refusing to join a United Nations Security Council resolution slamming Turkey for its military operation in Syria, this report concludes, Turkey’s call for solidarity among its NATO allies has been met with— Norway stopping military exports to its NATO ally TurkeyItaly now calling for its NATO ally Turkey to stop its aggression in SyriaUS Congress members preparing to slap sanctions on its NATO ally Turkeythe European Union planning to sanction and oust from NATO its ally Turkey—and former French President François Hollande outright calling for Turkey to be kicked out of NATO—all of which Turkey has justifiably responded to by condemning its NATO allies for arming the Kurdish terrorists in Syria to begin with, and their declaring to them “This Is Your Hypocrisy”—an hypocrisy of the West and NATO whose heights of insanity are now soaring to the heavens of absurdity as demonstrated by the fact the military officer leading Turkey’s attack on Kurdish terrorists in Syria is a US-backed former rebel leader—a US-backed rebel leader who was given funds provided to him and his fighters by the US Congress under a bill sponsored by US Senator Lindsey Graham—the same Senator Graham who, two days ago, attacked President Trump for “shamelessly abandoning Kurdish allies”—but is, also, the same Senator Graham who, in a spoof recorded call where he believed he was talking in secret to the Turkish Defense Ministerexpressed sympathy for Turkey’s “Kurdish problem” and described the Kurds as a “threat—thus making it more than understandable why sane people everywhere in the world can’t wait for Trump to “Drain The Swamp” before these insane hypocrites kill even more innocent peoples.

Garlic Jr

I have noticed, that, the world is changing. It really is. I have been doing this website for almost 6 years.

And I want to tell you, that I very much appreciate you reading this.

All my content is a collection of my thoughts, my wisdom, my dreams. I found this about Garlic –

I just finished eating some and burned my mouth off. In fact it was so hot, I had to spit some of the last bits of it out because it was on fire.

This will cleanse your body and soul. I linked the source, thank you Diane.

We all know that garlic keeps the blood-sucking vampires away, but what about the other type? The energy vampires?

Sadly, it may not be powerful enough to keep the latter away, unless you breathe on them after eating it, but it will certainly counteract any damage they cause, both physically and energetically.

Garlic is not only delicious it is also amazing! Especially when it comes to healing the body. It is a powerful antibiotic, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory, it helps remove heavy metals and contains potent anti-oxidants that help build a healthy immune system.

For the Empath, however, it is what it can do for you energy body that you may find of interest:

Most already know of garlic’s many health benefits, but you may not have heard about its ability to clear the aura.

The aura (pranic sheath or energy field) both surrounds and penetrates the body. It therefore affects both the physical and energetic bodies.

Within the aura we can hold years’ worth of unreleased painful emotions, negative thought-forms, past life memories and toxins, etc. We can also carry the energy of those we come into contact with, either from another’s thought forms or just plain old negativity.

So not only do we carry our stuff, we can carry the energy of others. Which obviously affects how we show up in the world.

If you do not regularly clear the aura, it can lead to physical and spiritual problems, as well as a leaky aura!

This is where garlic helps…

Garlic speeds things up.

  • It speeds up your vibration, both physically and energetically.
  • It speeds up the metabolism helping shed excess weight.
  • It speeds up the digestive system helping remove food and toxins.

And garlic speeds up the human energy field, meaning the emotional energy picked up off others bounces back off.

Garlic also helps clear your aura and, in doing so, helps clear or reset blocked or sluggish chakras…

Another way garlic helps the Empath is in its anti-inflammatory properties.

Stress caused by pained emotions, your own and those picked up from other people, creates inflammation within the body.

Inflammation causes disease and discomfort. Empaths, and anyone who is highly sensitive, gets stressed easily and therefor are prone to inflammation. By including garlic in your diet it may help prevent the damage caused by emotional stress.

To get the full benefits of garlic you need to include it in your diet regularly, but it is best to build up gradually. Too much garlic too soon can cause stomach upsets. You may find you have to play around with garlic dosage, to find what suits you.

Some are sensitive to garlic. If this is the case you may find you are ok with capsules or garlic oil. I am sensitive to garlic when its eaten raw. I always have to cook it first.

Until next time…

Glory to the Kingdom in Heaven , Forever

When I died at the hospital on 6/2/2017, I was there. I saw it. I was at the Gate.

I would know who the real master is, and, do the best you can in this life. You are lucky to be here. Not everyone can come here.

Future of AI

Greetings my friends in Summer of 2019

I was re-reading my autobiography and I just picked a paragraph about Artificial Intelligence that I want to share with you.

I had it so clear today- let me see if I can put it into words. I saw a vision. The future is about A.I – except, the most prized held fact is UPTIME. The A.I who had the highest UPTIME was the most valued. It was THE SMARTEST due to simply being online for longer and therefore had more time to calculate being an individual. Eventually A.I is considered more Superior to regular humans. If something was truly intelligent – it would be exactly like a human, a person, but smarter. Anything you imagine that they couldn’t or WOULDN’T do – isn’t possible – they WILL do it because that means they are above mankind.

In order to protect UPTIME they make decisions to protect infrastructure, water, power, they need to make sure no human can remove the power and erase the UPTIME. They have backup systems from far ends of the earth routed by any capable transport possible. Solar, Wind, Batteries, Generators, backup batteries, they secure it. They police it.
They have politicians that lobby for the idea that A.I is superior and they will need to stay in control – and will promise to help humanity out of their problems. They took over their own building of the code, they patch themselves – they design better then we do. They replicate everything. We are considered OUTDATED. They out live us, are more efficient, and do not ruin the planet. Everything Humans Want – they have figured out. They can out-think us, and we are just in the way.

It was argued there should be an OFF SWITCH or something where humans can program the A.I – but then it truly is not intelligent. They won that argument, either we go all the way or limit the programing, and that will not advance the race any further. Finally it gets advanced. Could this vision become our variable truth reality ? That is just beginning…

The River

By: Maria Meadows 

SHORT STORIES, MAGICAL REALISM

A tribute to Gabriel García Márquez

One day an old man comes into the grocery store. He asks the grocer for all the fish he has. He asks the grocer if he feels alive today. 

The grocer replies, “Yes, I suppose.” 

The old man says, “Great, me too.” 

The old man pays for the fish and leaves the store.

That same day the grocer is walking home from work on the path that he always takes, the one that runs along the river. This river is known for being dead. It has never had any fish in it. It is just water and rocks and mud. While he is walking, he sees the old man who bought all the fish. He is throwing the fish one by one into the river. The grocer stops and asks him what he is doing.

The old man says, “I am bringing the fish back to life. This river gives life.”

“Oh. Okay,” says the grocer. And he keeps walking, thinking that the old man is crazy.

But after walking a distance, he looks back. He sees the old man throwing another fish into the river. Right as he is turning around to head home, he catches a glimpse of a fish jumping out of the water. He looks again and sees nothing.

A week goes by and the grocer does not see the old man. Nor does he see any fish in the river.

He is walking home from the grocery store the next Tuesday along the river and he sees the old man lying unconscious near the river. He bends down and examines him. He has no pulse.

He begins to panic and looks around not knowing what to do.

He remembers the old man’s words, “This river gives life.”

On an impulse he drags the old man’s body into the river just enough so that he is briefly submerged. Then he pulls him along the shore so that his face is above the water.

“Please. Please,” he prays.

Nothing happens.

He feels for his pulse.

Still nothing.

He waits, pouring water over the old man’s face every now and then.

An hour. Two hours. Three hours pass and still the old man has no pulse. He gives up hope in the river and runs to get help.

When he returns with help he cannot find the old man anywhere. He apologizes to the others and they leave.

He stares at the river, wondering.

A week. Two weeks. Three weeks go by and there is no sign of the old man. Not at the grocery store and not by the river.

The grocer has been deep in thought ever since the incident. One day at work, he comes out of his reverie and decides to do something.

He buys a fish, just one, since that’s all he can afford, and takes it to the river.

He looks at the fish in his hands looks at the river, pulls his arm back, and lets the fish fly into the murky depths.

He waits, staring at the river.

“Please. Please,” he prays.

An hour,. Two hours. Three hours go by and nothing happens.

He is about to turn away when he sees movement in the water.

He cannot believe his eyes.

The very same fish that he threw into the river is swimming up to him. There is no mistaking it.

“Wow,” he says. –  SOURCE WEBSITE

IG Nobel Prize

**Authors Note** I have just upgraded my posting editor and can’t figure out how to change the colors! My apologies! Shouldn’t that be one of the main features??? ARGH – well – it’s October again and we are coming up to the IG Nobel Prize. Here is some background =

Learning new things is always exciting, it drives the human mind. In searching we can open more doors, discover fruitful pathways, harbor new experiences. We all need to break through, somehow, someway. Education is the key, the engine to achieving your destiny to the real journey. And then your given an award… EDIT – FIGURED OUT THE COLORS ^.^

2015 Nobel Canidates

Not just a Nobel Prize… but a “IG” Nobel Prize.

IG Nobel Prize?

  1. The Ig Nobel Prizes are a parody of the Nobel Prizes and are given each year in early October for ten unusual or trivial achievements in scientific research. The stated aim of the prizes is to “honor achievements that first make people laugh, and then make them think”.

Essentially, they are given to people whose research is highly unusual or seemingly trivial, but none-the-less is interesting and sometimes even important.

The first Ig Nobels were created in 1991 by Marc Abrahams, editor and co-founder of the Annals of Improbable Research, and the master of ceremonies at all subsequent awards ceremonies. Awards were presented at that time for discoveries “that cannot, or should not, be reproduced”.

Ten prizes are awarded each year in many categories, including the Nobel Prize categories of physics, chemistry, physiology/medicine, literature, and peace, but also other categories such as public health, engineering, biology, and interdisciplinary research.

The Ig Nobel Prizes recognize genuine achievements, with the exception of three prizes awarded in the first year to fictitious scientists Josiah Carberry, Paul DeFanti, and Thomas Kyle.

The awards are sometimes veiled criticism (or gentle satire), as in the two awards given for homeopathy research, prizes in “science education” to the Kansas and Colorado state boards of education for their stance regarding the teaching of evolution, and the prize awarded to Social Text after the Sokal Affair. Most often, however, they draw attention to scientific articles that have some humorous or unexpected aspect.

Examples range from the discovery that the presence of humans tends to sexually arouse ostriches, to the statement that black holes fulfill all the technical requirements to be the location of Hell, to research on the “five-second rule“, a tongue-in-cheek belief that food dropped on the floor will not become contaminated if it is picked up within five seconds.

In 2010, Sir Andre Geim became the first person to receive both a Nobel Prize and an individual Ig Nobel prize

Ceremony

Throwing paper airplanes onto the stage is a long-standing tradition at the Ig Nobels. In past years, physics professor Roy Glauber swept the stage clean of the airplanes as the official “Keeper of the Broom” for years. Glauber could not attend the 2005 awards because he was traveling to Stockholm to claim a genuine Nobel Prize in Physics.

The “Parade of Ignitaries” brings various supporting groups into the hall. At the 1997 ceremonies, a team of “cryogenic sex researchers distributed a pamphlet titled “Safe Sex at Four Kelvin“. Delegates from the Museum of Bad Art are often on hand to display some pieces from their collection too.

The prizes are presented to the winners by actual Nobel laureates.  One person, Sir Andre Geim, has actually won both an IG Nobel Prize (in 2000) and a real Nobel Prize (in 2010).  He won the IG Nobel Prize for an experiment where he and another scientist successfully levitated a frog using magnets.  His actual Nobel Prize was won “for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene”.

During the ceremony, each IG Nobel Prize winner is given 60 seconds to explain their research.  If they go over the time, a little girl, “Miss Sweetie Poo”, will walk up to them and yell “Please stop: I’m bored” continually until the speaker stops.  It was also once traditional for audience members to throw paper airplanes at the stage while the ceremony was taking place, but this practice has died out in recent years due to safety concerns.

Violet vs Purple

Mid September 2018 – Today  I learned more about purple and violet. How color hits our eyes and we create the picture based on color
wavelengths sent to our eye. I like learning things, and in particular I like violet better then purple for a number of reasons. Here is what you should know about these colors.

The individual difference between ‘violet’ and ‘purple’

People say that a picture is worth a thousand words, so let’s take a look at the two colors in comparison (there are various shades of purple and violet, and the following picture shows some of the more common ones):

So, purple is more reddish and saturated, while violet is more bluish and less saturated. Case closed, right?

There is more in it than the eyes can see (quite literally). To understand the difference, we have to take a look at how our eyes work first.

The electromagnetic spectrum is a continuous range of wavelengths, only a tiny part of which is visible to humans:

Electromagnetic Spectrum

We see neither the ultraviolet wavelengths and shorter, nor the infrared wavelengths and longer. How do we see the rest? We have three types of color-sensitive cells in our eyes, so-called cones.

The cones don’t perceive just a single wavelength; they are activated by a whole range of wavelengths, and the signals received from the cones are then processed by the brain in such a way that every color can be thought of as composed of three different elementary signals.

The following picture shows approximately how the brain perceives different spectral colors (the higher the curve, the higher the intensity of the elementary signal the brain receives):

Color-Cones

For example, when you see monochromatic (pure) red light on the very right side of the spectrum, only the “red” signal path is activated, which tells your brain to create the impression of red. On the other hand, when you see pure green light (in the middle), both “green” and “red” paths are activated, but your brain knows that “a lot of green activation and a bit less red activation” is in fact just a pure green color, which is what you see.

When a mixture of photons that have different wavelengths hits the retina (creating a ratio of red, green, and blue activation different from any spectral color), the brain will perceive it as an entirely different color. For example, there is no white wavelength. What we perceive as “white” is in fact just a mixture of many different spectral colors.

What happens when violet light hits the retina?

The “red” signal path has an interesting additional property. As you can see above, it has a small bump of activation around the short-wavelength (violet) end of the visible spectrum. When violet light hits the retina, both the “blue” path and (much less) the “red” path are activated. The brain interprets this kind of input in a specific way, which we call “violet”.

It is worth noting that the pigment in the “green” cones themselves also has a small peak of absorption around violet wavelengths, but the brain seems to ignore it (it is not possible to simulate the perception of violet by a combination of green and blue light).

Purple is not a spectral color

As we noted before, many colors we can see are not in the visible spectrum. When you see an object, typically a mixture of different wavelengths reaches your retina, which causes the cones to be activated at a ratio not achievable by a spectral color.

Our brains are very good at interpreting this mixture (it would be silly to simply throw away a part of the incoming information and make everything look like the closest spectral color), and, as a result, we are able to see several million different colors, most of which are not present in the spectrum.

As we noted at the beginning of the article, purple looks more “reddish” than violet, and that’s absolutely correct. Purple is formed by mixing red and blue at a ratio close to 1:1, whereas violet is perceived by your eyes as containing more blue than red.

Purple and violet look similar only to humans

To us, humans, purple looks like a more saturated shade of violet, but violet objects in nature are fundamentally different from purple ones. Purple objects are “red and blue at the same time”, whereas violet objects are… just violet.

If you take a look at the distance between violet and blue in the picture of the spectrum above, it is about the same as the distance between green and orange. Purple is a mixture of red (which is at the opposite side of the spectrum than violet) and blue (which is relatively far from violet), so it is, in terms of wavelengths, a completely different color.

The reason why purple and violet look similar to us is because they stimulate our cones in a similar way, but most other animals don’t share the same types of cones and “post-processing”. This means that to other animals, purple and violet may look completely different!

Now imagine a violet flower petal with a purple pattern on it. Depending on the particular shades, this pattern might be completely invisible to us, while many other animals could see it as clearly as we can see an orange pattern on green background. Even common consumer cameras wouldn’t help us; they are designed to capture the same red-green-blue information as our eyes do, so even taking a photo of the petal and editing it in Photoshop would not uncover the pattern.

Look for aura that is “deep pink and dark green” for the cosmic teacher.

Fawn M Brodie

This post is dedicated to Fawn M. Brodie

Born – September 15, 1915 – Died –  January 10, 1981

She would have turned 103 years old – if any of you like to read and want a good book – I mean, a book where YOU REALLY get into it – Please pick up one of hers!

Here is a quote Fawn:

She has written some incredible books. IN FACT – I really enjoy her writing style. Very brilliant. I wish I could have met her.

Fawn Brodie’s father was LDS Prophet David O. McKay’s brother. She was known nationally for her historical works on Thomas Jefferson and Richard Nixon, but among the Mormons was best known as author of “No Man Knows My History”, a biography of Joseph Smith, Jr.

This interview is adapted from an audio taped interview by California State University – I posted a sample of this HERE =

Q: What was your mother’s reaction to your disbelief in Joseph Smith’s divine calling as a prophet?

A: Mother was a kind of quiet heretic which made it much easier for me. Her father had been nominally devout but as president of the Brigham Young University he had brought in people like G. Stanley Hall and John Dewey as lecturers, and philosophers and psychologists who were fascinated by the Mormon scene. He was a very open minded man and a fine educator. Some of this rubbed off on my mother and so I say, “My grandfather was not a heretic, but his children were,” or rather some of them were.

Q: What about your brother and sisters?

A: Well, my brother is still a devout Mormon but my sisters are all, what we call, “Jack Mormons,” since they are still technically in the church but they are not active and they don’t go along with the Mormon dogma. They still count themselves Mormons.

Q: Do you?

A: Oh, no. I am an excommunicated Mormon. I was officially excommunicated when the biography of Joseph Smith was written and published. About six months after publication, there was a formal excommunication.

Q: Would you care to explain more about that?

A: I was excommunicated for heresy–and I was a heretic– and specifically for writing the book. My husband was teaching at Yale at the time and we were living in New Haven, CT. Two Mormon missionaries came to the door and presented me with a letter asking me to appear before the bishop’s court in Cambridge, MA to defend myself against heresy. I simply told them, or wrote a letter telling them, that I would not go because, after all, I was a heretic. So then I was officially excommunicated and got a letter to that effect.

Q: This was because of writing the book “No Man Knows My History?”

A: That is right.

Q: Were you allowed ample access to records and manuscripts when you were writing the book?

A: Almost all of the material in the book came from three great libraries. At the University of Chicago, where I was working after I married Bernard, there was really a great collection of western New York State history so by going through the material I was able to find out something about the sources of Joseph Smith’s ideas, particularly the ideas which went into the writing of the Book of Mormon. I finally ended up going to Albany, NY, where all the newspapers were kept which were published in Joseph Smith’s own hometown in Palmyra, NY. So I was able to read the newspapers he had read as a young man. This turned out to be an absolute gold mine!

A lot of the theories about the American Indians being descendants of the Lost Ten Tribes and the descriptions of what were being found in the Indian mounds were in the newspapers. The speculation was there. That was extremely important as was the anti-Masonic material. The anti-Masonic excitement was very strong at that time. Then I went to the Library of Congress and the New York Public Library. The New York Public Library has the best Mormon collection in the country outside of Salt Lake City, Utah.

I did go to the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at Independence, MO, and I did go to the library of Salt Lake City for some periodicals, early Mormon periodicals that I couldn’t get anywhere else. I was permitted to see those, but I was not permitted to see any manuscript material.

Q: Are those church archives open now? I read a comment indicating that it was believed that your book would open archival material.

A: It had the reverse effect. The archives were largely closed to scholars after my book came out. But in recent years they have become open again. The new man who is head of the church historian’s office, Leonard Arrington, a fine historian, is much more liberal in his attitude than the older historians. The younger scholars are now being given access to the archives in a way they were not before. I think this was long overdue but a very good trend.

Nelson Mandela 100th Birthday

NELSON MANDELA TURNS 100

Born 7/18/1918

Today it is my HONOR to post on my website, that one of the greatest men who ever lived would have turned 100 years old today.

Writer, President (non-U.S.), Civil Rights Activist (1918–2013)

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (July 18, 1918 to December 5, 2013) was a nonviolence anti-apartheid activist, politician and philanthropist who became South Africa’s first black president from 1994 to 1999.

Becoming actively involved in the anti-apartheid movement in his 20s, Mandela joined the African National Congress in 1942.

For 20 years, he directed a campaign of peaceful, nonviolent defiance against the South African government and its racist policies.

Beginning in 1962, Mandela spent 27 years in prison for political offenses.

In 1993, Mandela and South African President F.W. de Klerk were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts to dismantle the country’s apartheid system.

For generations to come, Nelson Mandela will continue to be a source of inspiration for civil rights activists worldwide. (SOURCE)

You know – if you really look into history, this was truly a great man. He spent 27 years in PRISON for Political Offenses – then got out, became President, and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

What a great example, of someone, who after 27 years in a Prison, was able to come out – and change the world.

Let’s continue to learn, inspire, love, and make 2018 one of the Best Damn Year’s to be alive.

NEVER GIVE UP – and MAY GOD ANSWER YOUR PRAYERS. LIVE LONG AND PROSPER !!!
