Thinking Outside The US Major News Media Box, On Trump

A Possible Unbrainwashied View

Our US News Media constantly points out that Trump only has polling approval in the high forties. What they don't mention is the even lower polling approval of Democrats, in general, in many polls.

The polls are all over the place with wide differences and contradictions between them all. These differences reflect the personal politics of the pollers, the way their questions are framed, the mindset of the socio-economic class they choose to poll, and dozens of other trickster methods they employ to get the results they want. I personally think the Rasmussen Polling group is the most honest. RB

One way to reassess a complicated, overanalyzed, misrepresented question is to look at it through the eyes of an unaffiliated person, outside the box, who has not been tainted by a flood of propaganda. Here is one such, more objective, fresh-view, in my opinion. RB

British Diplomats Are Quietly Admitting Trump Is A Slam Dunk To Win In 2020

Many people saw Doug Jones’ win in Alabama as a swing for voters back the left, threatening the Republicans in Congress and ultimately President Trump’s chances at re-election in 2020. However, our allies across the Atlantic seem to think otherwise.
Senior diplomats in the United Kingdom have made it clear that they think President Trump is the most likely to be elected in 2020. According to The Telegraph, a reputable British news source, the problem with the Democratic candidates is two-fold; they are either “too old”, or “lacking in the name recognition needed to defeat Mr. Trump.”
The “too old” candidates the diplomats seem to be referencing are possible candidates like Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders. And it seems that the only two that may have the name recognition are the former Vice-President and the Senator from Vermont. The only other possible candidate that has the name recognition is Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Ma.), however, the Washington Post places her odds at running low, especially if Sanders runs again.
The Telegraph also notes that President Trump has seemed to relax on some of the more radical policies that got him elected. He seems to have pulled back on threatening to ignore NATO agreements. This is coupled with his President Trump’s recent move to allow military weapons to go to Ukraine to help repel the Russian insurgency into Crimea and eastern Ukraine that began in 2014. 
   President Trump has also relaxed on his plan to completely pull out of Afghanistan. Instead, he has revised the US’ mission to help better combat the Taliban in the country. This builds of Trump’s existing successful strategy that has reduced ISIS territory by 98% since he took office.
This means that the Prime Minister Theresa May and the Royal Family will have to work hard to build a friendly relationship with the Trump Administration but it will be around for seven more years.

A Tale of New Zealand 

New Zealand was once among the world’ richest countries with a flourishing trade in agriculture and building materials, but after a series of socialistically-inclined governments, by the 1980s, the country could not even feed itself. It was forced to import food. The country had massive agricultural subsidies and supports.  It had a top income tax of 66% and the government share of GDP was 45%.  The economy was paralyzed. 

The saving change, somewhat oddly, came about due to the election of a labor government which adopted zero-based budgeting for all government departments.  New Zealand sold off its nationalized airlines, railways, airports, seaports, bus lines, banks, hotels, insurance firms, maritime insurance companies, radio spectrum, printing facilities, forests, irrigation schemes, and an array of other holdings.  It abolished the farm programs that in 1985 were supplying 45% of all agricultural income. 

(We Americans, knowing the inefficiencies, biases, hubris, waste, and incompetence of our own government, might stand amazed that New Zealand functioned at all prior to the sell-offs.) 

A decade later, New Zealand had one of the most competitive economies in the world.  The government share of GDP had fallen to 27%, unemployment was 3% and the top tax rate was 30%.  Taxes on capital gains, inheritances and luxuries were eliminated and excise taxes were abolished.  The government went from 23 years of deficits to 17 years of surpluses and repaid most of the national debt – chiefly through record economic growth that restored New Zealand as one of the world’s richest nations. 

The most dramatic change was in agriculture.  From its mendicant status as an importer of food, it was transformed into one of the world’s most creative and profitable food exporters.  Its dairy output multiplied from just a handful of products – milk, cheese, and butter – to some 17,000 variations. 

Its success in exporting cheese and butter products was great enough to provoke the state of Wisconsin to make charges of unfair trading practices. (I can think of no better tribute to New Zealand’s industry.)

Trump's Approval Rating Skyrockets

“About six-in-ten stories on Trump’s early days in office had a negative assessment, about three times more than in early coverage for Obama and roughly twice that of Bush and Clinton,” Pew found. “Coverage of Trump’s early time in office moved further away from a focus on the policy agenda and more toward character and leadership.” Only five percent of the mainstream media’s coverage of Trump was positive, compared to 42 percent of the media’s coverage on Obama’s job performance.
That’s not all. Compared to Democrat approval ratings, Trump is untouchable...Only 37% of Americans have a favorable view of Democratic politicians, significantly less than Trump’s 45% approval rating. Meanwhile, a staggering 54% of American voters have an unfavorable opinion of Democrats.

Another Real, True, Headline About The Origin Of Life

This from Daily Science News

Oldest fossil ever found shows life on 

Earth began before 3.5 billion years ago

The headline above is a true headline. The headline is right up there above this line. You can see it. It is verifiable as a headline. It was printed in the Daily Science News and therefore has to be a true headline. Thousands of people read the headline and can vouch it was and is a headline. I too read it and can confirm it as a real, published on top (head) of the page, a blue type declaration.  It is not a Bi-line, a Belt-line or a Footnote but a top of the line HEAD-LINE.

Not only is it a true headline, but I can confirm that this very first old fossil was discovered by UCLA and The University of Wisconsin. Their statement that the age of the fossil is, "before 3.5 billion years ago", is really a statement. They really said that. To be more precise, this old fossil is 3.5 billion years, 6 months, 14 days, 3 hours, 26 minutes and 7 seconds old. I know the exact time of the origin of life in this first "old fossil" because it was me and I checked my calendar and watch at the exact time I hatched from an infinitesimal nothing to an infinitesimal something with one eye, a watch, a calendar and a good memory. I am the only "old fossil" still living who was there ... so, by cracky, the world must take my word as to the exact age of the first life on earth ... fossil me. I'm it because I say I'm it and I put my true name to it ... First Foolish Old Fossil RB (Rare Breed). Here is the truth of it ... 1Tim.6:20 KJV

Keep Your Eye On Congressman Trey Gowdy...

Presidential Material

The foundational law of the United State is the U.S. Constitution. All new law legislated in the U.S. or the 50 states or territories must conform to the letter of the U.S. Constitution. That Constitution calls for three branches of government in the United States. 

The First Branch is a Congress, composed of two houses, the Senate House and the House of Representatives. There are 100 Senators, two from each state and 435 Representatives, several from each state, based on the population in the state. The Constitutional function of the Congress is to "legislate" (make) laws, as needed, but firmly based on the U.S. Constitution and never in conflict with it. The "Lower", House Of Representatives, responds to the needs of the people faster since Representatives only have a two-year term. Laws dealing with revenue must start in the House Of Representatives. The "Upper" House, the Senate, is slower, with six-year terms and considers the long-term effects of all new laws.

The Second Branch is the Judicial, composed of nine Supreme Court Justices, at the top,  and a network of lower courts throughout the nation. Theirs is a lifetime appointment. Their Constitutional function is to judge whether new laws conform to the foundational law of the land, the U.S. Constitution and to act as the final authority, on appeal, in determining disagreements which have passed through the lower courts. The Supreme Court is not to make new laws or enforce the laws but to judge if they conform to the Constitution.

The Third Branch is the Executive, the Presidency. The Presidency does not Legislate, or make, or judge our laws but, as the Executive executes our laws. All Law enforcement agencies, prisons, and the military are under his authority in executing the law. The President does NOT make the law or Judge the law but is to enforce it as it is written. That is the extent of his authority. 

When the President or Supreme Court decides to "make" laws, it is a perversion of the Constitution and will result in some form of dictatorship. 

All authority which is not specifically delegated to one of the three federal branches, by the Constitution, belongs exclusively to the States.

Congressman Trey Gowdy, of South Carolina, is Chairman of the House Oversight Committee and is a former Prosecuting Attorney. He is the most outspoken member of the House Of Representatives, for Constitutional Law. Here is a video of Rep. Gowdy doing his job in cleaning up the House.

The Supporting Bridge, For Prophetic Fulfillment, Is Now Open

Expect Rapid Movement Over It ... Not Peace

One of the first things Jesus said, was ...
"Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword." Matt.10:34.
There are two opposing sides in this struggle, God and the Devil, Good and Evil, Right and Wrong, Light and darkness. RB

Quote from Israeli activist: 'Words of 

prophecy are coming forth from the Bible 

and becoming facts'.

WASHINGTON – While Muslims jeer, Israelis cheer President Trump’s Jerusalem declaration, prompting Jewish religious activists to suggest building the Third Temple is closer to reality than ever before. 

“What he did … was an enormous step in bringing the Temple,” said Asaf Fried, official spokesman for the United Temple Movement, an association of organizations working towards making the Third Temple a reality. 

He added, “This necessarily had to come from a non-Jew in order to bring them into the process so they will be able to take their part in the Temple.” 

Fried sees Trump’s role similar to the one played by Cyrus, the Persian king who ended the Babylonian exile and helped build the Second Jewish Temple. 

“There have been amazing advances towards bringing the Temple this year. It was clear that Trump was part of that process, guided by Hashem (God),” Fried declared. 

He is hardly alone in his jubilation about the possibilities of rebuilding a Temple last destroyed in A.D. 70 – 1,948 years ago. 

“The prophets’ words of prophecy are coming forth from the Bible and becoming facts right before our eyes,” said Likud lawmaker and prominent Temple Mount movement figure Yehuda Glick. 

The future Third Temple ... as it might appear The future Third Temple … Quoting from the opening words of the book of Lamentations, in a reference to Jerusalem, Glick noted that once Jeremiah had wept, crying “How deserted lies the city, once so full of people! How like a widow is she, who once was great among the nations!” 

What do YOU think? Will God’s Temple be rebuilt before Messiah comes to Earth?  

But the rise of the state of Israel, coupled with Trump’s declaration, have now changed all that, Glick suggests: “So, Mister Jeremiah, I’m sending you a What's App: ‘Jerusalem is no longer alone like a widow. Jerusalem is recognized as the capital of the Jewish People.'”
Rabbi Hillel Weiss, the spokesman for the nascent Sanhedrin, was cautiously optimistic.
“One year ago, the Sanhedrin called on Trump to build the Temple as Cyrus did 2,000 years ago,” Weiss said. “He has clearly moved in this direction but there is still a long way to go and many pitfalls that could prevent that from happening. Trump is facing enormous political pressures. The borders of Jerusalem are still open to negotiation. The Temple Mount is still not a settled issue and the United Nations is working hard at trying to convince the world the Jews have no place there. If Trump is to succeed, the Jews have to come together in unity in order for him to remain strong.”
Yakov Hayman, the United Temple Movement chairman, also saw Trump’s statement as part of a major shift in modern history for Israel and the Jewish people.
He said, “1917 was the Balfour Declaration establishing Israel for the nations, 2017 was Trump’s declaration.”
“When Jews and non-Jews go up en masse, the Temple is inevitable,” Hayman added. “The people of Israel are returning to their roots while simultaneously the non-Jews of the world are realizing the authenticity of our claim to the Temple Mount and our right to build a Jewish Temple as a House of Prayer for All Nations. These processes are codependent. It depends on the Jews, our actions, but the non-Jews are an essential part of the process. Our task is to act as priests to make the whole world holy,” Hayman said, citing verse 19:6 in the Book of Exodus: “And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.”
He added: “That will only happen in a Temple in Jerusalem,” he emphasized. “The next step, the most important step, must be taken by the Jews. We need to begin going up to the Temple Mount is massive numbers. Once we do that, the Temple is the next inevitable step.”
Glick said: “Just as I’ve said that the State of Israel is a miracle, one of the greatest of miracles, it seems to me that the fact that hundreds of millions of people, Christians, recognize Israel, is another stage in the miracle.”
“There is something very special and holy in Trump,” added Hayman. “Sometimes, he appears coarse and not connected to religion, but every time he addresses the nation he speaks about God. Last night, he said his motivation for recognizing Jerusalem was because it was the right thing to do. That is precisely how a leader guided by God should speak.”'

Any Intentional Distraction From Christ At CHRISTmas Is Evil

I don't care if they make Santa Claus black or white since he is fictional and has absolutely nothing to do with the true meaning of Christmas ... but "gay?". OK, homogenize his color to light brown and please the whole brownish world. There is nothing wrong with being white, brown or black, but to make him gay perverts the innocent minds of precious little children, most of whom know more about Santa than Jesus and expect more of him. It is Santa who is glorified all over the world, even by most professing Christians, but not Jesus, whose birthday CHRISTmas supposedly represents. This latest, blatant expansion of the perversion of Christmas, all blended with happy humor and homosexual  "sweetness", makes one wonder if there is any limit to the depths of the hellish wickedness of Left Wing Liberals.

This from Conservative 101 News
CNN Is Now Promoting A Children’s Book Showing Santa Claus As A Gay Black Man

It’s disgusting how liberals are determined to disrespect and even destroy our troubled country’s traditions and values. It’s even sadder that left-wing mainstream media outlets are helping them.

In a recent segment, CNN helped left-wing author Daniel Kibblesmith plug his new children’s book titled Santa’s Husband. Said the description of the book, “Offering a fresh twist on Kris Kringle, a clever yet heartfelt book that tells the story of a black Santa, his white husband, and their life in the North Pole. Everyone knows that Santa Claus is jolly, but in Santa’s Husband, this cherished symbol of the holiday season is also black and gay, and married to an equally cheery man.”
Said CNN host Christi Paul cheerfully, introducing the segment, “There’s a new children’s book out this Christmas — takes us inside Santa’s wedding. We meet Santa’s husband David. We’re going to talk to the author and illustrator ahead.”
The author talked about his inspiration for making a book about a black, gay Santa, saying, “It was sort of inspired by the annual tradition we have in this country of pretending that there’s a giant war on Christmas and that traditional Christmas is under attack. So, among other things, we were reading all of the news about the Mall of America hiring a black Santa Claus last year.”
He went on, “And me and my now-wife made a joke on Twitter that, if we ever had a child, they would only know about black Santa Claus — and if they saw a white Santa Claus at the mall, we would just explain, ‘Well, that’s his husband.’ And then Ashley and I knew each other from the internet and from her illustration already, and she jumped into my Twitter mentions and said, ‘Boom — new book.'” Do you think this children’s book and how CNN is helping promote it is proof that there’s a war on Christmas?

Sproul Ascends From The Top Of The Mountain To Glory

From The New American

R.C. Sproul Goes to His Eternal Reward

Robert Charles “R.C.” Sproul left his earthly existence around 3:00 p.m. Thursday afternoon in a hospital in Altamonte Springs, Florida, surrounded by his wife, Vespa, and members of his family.
When he suffered a stroke in 2015, someone asked him what he wanted to see engraved on his tombstone. His cheerful response: “I told you I was sick!”
He never fully recovered from that stroke, and in early December a combination of the flu and COPD (from which he suffered for years) sent him back to the hospital. Despite the medical efforts to restore his breathing, he passed into eternity after 12 days in the hospital, at the age of 78.
Sproul came to faith in Christ in an experience that he said was probably unique in all of human history. As a football player at Westminster College, he was having dinner with the captain of the team:
[The captain] quoted Ecclesiastes 11:3: “Whether a tree falls to the south or to the north, in the place where it falls, there will it lie.” [I] just feel certain I’m the only person in church history that was converted by that verse. God just took that verse and struck my soul with it.
I saw myself as a log that was rotting in the woods. And I was going nowhere. When I left that guy’s table I went up to my room. And into my room by myself, in the dark, I got on my knees and cried out to God to forgive me.
As Sproul’s faith deepened and his influence expanded, he was led to start Ligonier Ministries in Pennsylvania’s Ligonier Valley just outside Pittsburg in 1971. He wrote, studied, preached, taught, held conferences, and in general did everything he could to — in the words of the ministry itself — “equip Christians to articulate what they believe, why they believe it, how to live it, and how to share it.” As Chris Larson, one of R.C.’s students and now president and CEO of Ligonier Ministries, expressed it: “Through his teaching ministry, many of us learned that God is bigger than we knew, our sin is more deeply rooted than we imagined, and the grace of God in Jesus Christ is overwhelming.”
Although taking himself in a light-hearted manner, R.C. took the message of the Gospel very seriously indeed: “Whatever else we do with this Gospel, we must never, never, ever, ever, ever mess with it." A Calvinist, Sproul was a critic of the Roman Catholic Church and its theology, and sharply criticized the 1994 attempt to reconcile the differences between Protestants and Catholics in “Evangelicals and Catholics Together.” Sproul held that essential differences made reconciliation impossible.
An indefatigable laborer for the Gospel, Sproul and his ministry poured out a veritable river of educational materials, including more than 500 teaching programs on apologetics, philosophy, ethics, Christian theology, and discipleship available in both video and audio formats. His ministry offers more than 500 books authored by more than 100 of Sproul’s students, including 100 written by Sproul himself. His radio program, Renewing Your Mind, reaches potentially 100 million people, while more than 200,000 people receive his monthly Tabletalk magazine. Ligonier’s website receives over 500,000 unique visitors every month, with close to four million page views. Its Christian Internet radio program is broadcast to believers in more than 175 countries.
With his departure from this life, not only is Sproul now enjoying his heavenly reward but the angels there are celebrating his arrival. In Sproul’s last tweet dated December 1, he wrote, “When God writes our names in the ‘Lamb’s Book of Life,' he doesn’t do it with an eraser handy. He does it for eternity.”

Think On These Things The Final Hours Of 2017

You will be a happier, better person when you do.

Find Something Beautiful To Notice! 

Lisa Beamer on Good Morning America -If you remember, she's the wife of Todd Beamer who said 'Let's Roll!' and helped take down the plane over Pennsylvania that was heading for Washington, DC back on 9/11. 

She said: It's the little things that I miss most about Todd, such as hearing the garage door open as he came home, and our children running to meet him. 

Lisa recalled this story: "I had a very special teacher in high school many years ago whose husband died suddenly of a heart attack.  About a week after his death, she shared some of her insight with a classroom of students". 

As the late afternoon sunlight came streaming in through the classroom windows and the class was nearly over, she moved a few things aside on the edge of her desk and sat down there.  With a gentle look of reflection on her face, she paused and said, 'Class is over.  I would like to share with all of you, a thought that is unrelated to class, but which I feel is very important.  Each of us is put here on earth to learn, share, love, appreciate and give of ourselves.  None of us knows when this fantastic experience will end.  It can be taken away at any moment. Perhaps this is God's way of telling us that we must make the most out of every single day'.  Her eyes, beginning to water, she went on, 'So I would like you all to make me a promise. From now on, on your way to school, or on your way home, find something beautiful to notice.  It doesn't have to be something you see; it could be a scent, perhaps of freshly baked bread wafting out of someone's house, or it could be the sound of the breeze slightly rustling the leaves in the trees, or the way the morning light catches one autumn leaf as it falls gently to the ground.  Please look for these things, and cherish them. For, although it may sound trite to some, these things are the "stuff" of life.  The little things we are put here on earth to enjoy.  The things we often take for granted'. 

The class was completely quiet.  We all picked up our books and filed out of the room silently.  That afternoon, I noticed more things on my way home from school than I had that whole semester.  Every once in a while, I think of that teacher and remember what an impression she made on all of us, and I try to appreciate all of those things that sometimes we all overlook. 

Take notice of something special you see on your lunch hour today.  Go barefoot.  Or walk on the beach at sunset.  Stop off on the way home tonight to get a double-dip ice cream cone.  For as we get older, it is not so much the things we did that we often regret, but the things we didn't do. 

"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away." 

GOD Bless you every day of your life.  The nicest place to be is in someone's thoughts. The safest place to be is in someone's prayers, and the very best place to be is in the hands of God. 


"And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another." 
1 Cor.4:6

"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." Phil.4:8

The Shadow Elements Of End Times Prophecy Unfolding

All U.S. coins and currency have "In God, we trust", the national motto, on them except the $1.00 coin minted in 2013 by the Obama Administration. That tells you all you need to know about Obama. It wasn't a matter of having to get public acceptance to add the motto to the coins and currency, it was a matter of hoping the public would accept the coin with the motto left off. Such a radical change was not done accidentally; it could not be overlooked; it was done with malice aforethought, intentionally.
If you have never seen one of these coins, it is because the vast majority of Americans rejected it. They are probably stored up with all those 8000 tons of gold that isn't there in the vaults of Fort Knox... awaiting a more agnostical American public. Nothing reflects the Spiritual quotient of the U.S. than putting "In God We Trust" on our national money. But things are changing. Just 25 or 30 years ago, if a U.S. President tried to sneak a thing like that by the people, he would have been impeached. Obama did it with little outcry.

I recently saw a high tech Geek wearing a tee shirt inscribed "In Crypto We Trust". That motto has a much deeper meaning than on the surface. You see, "Crypto" is the world's future money. I could give you the Geek definition of the word but neither of us would know what it meant ... I read it. My simple-minded definition is, It is the nearest thing to a "virtual reality" of the spirit world, invisible in space. Bitcoin is crypto. It's neither coin nor paper nor anything but an electrical pulse, so to speak. Bitcoin is based on what the Geeks call Blockchain. It's a thousand times more than a means of untraceably transferring money, buying or selling, worldwide. Blockchain is said to be potentially more powerful in futuristic terms than all the governments of the world, much more so than Bitcoin or it's emulated twins. What governments and financial systems do so poorly, blockchain does well. It has only become common knowledge in the last few years and there are only about 1000 geniuses in the world who know it well enough to answer all the questioners about it. Blockchain is believed to be so powerful that it will eliminate poverty and revolutionize medicine, education, governing, and either accomplish absolute freedom for everyone in the world or absolute control of everyone in the world, depending on which way fate carries it.

With all of that, the single fallacy of Bitcoin, built on Blockchain, is just now being realized. It will be so globally pervasive that it will become electrically and exponentially unsustainable. It will reach a peak and who knows what the outcome will be. However, believe it or not, another offspring of the Blockchain miracle has arisen on the horizon of the technologically unimaginable.  This arriving new tech is a quantum leap above and beyond the Bitcoin wonder.  It looks as if Bitcoin may die in its crib, antiquated before puberty by a technology with a thousand times more potential to build our Babel Tower to heaven. It will accomplish "wonders and apparent miracles, unimaginable. Everything from replacing the Internet, currency, banks, dissolve borders and antiquating practically all other technologies. Its name is Hashgraph and it will make it possible to determine world consensus in an instant.

I see these global changes in the progression of civilization as stepping stones from the beginning of humanity leading up to the final and ultimate change. I don't know the exact order of the different ages of the race, in physical terms, but it was something like this. Stone Age, Bronze Age, Iron Age, Industrial Age, Technological Age, Cyber Information Age ... Global Unity Of Domination (7 years).
All these ages sought progress, survival, power, domination, comfort, and a co-operative god who would help them not hinder them. The constant stumbling stone and downfall of the world is not technology nor global warming nor political disagreement, but sin which is the result of original sin born in us since Eden and chosen by Adam and Eve's free will to do right or wrong. We have the same choice. All the progress in the world of technology, science, financial, physical, governmental, mental and religious, no matter how high sounding and effective, will ultimately fail to deliver us from the negative effects of sin. The final one being death and then hell. Faith in Jesus Christ is the one and only remedy from sins condemnation.

I say all the above to introduce to you a current flowing through the world and floating upon the same spirit of total independence from God as the one demonstrated by Adam and Eve and by the Nimrod people who, at Babel, thought they could build a Tower into heaven, fame, and fortune. They were well on their way when God came down and scattered them. He did so because, as He said, "Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do." Gen.11:6

Man's powers of knowledge, given us by God when he created us in his own likeness,  are almost unlimited. Besides that, God told Daniel,  "O Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased." Dan.12:4.

Below is the link to one of the most knowledgeable and well-presented dissertations of the Bitcoin, Blockchain, Crypto Currency, Artificial Intelligence and Hashgraph miracle you will ever see. Neither I nor you can absorb all this information, but the purpose of my sending it to you is that you might simply be aware of its existence and the possible place it will play in the unfolding of last days prophecy. Watch both halves, first, the Blockchain then Hashgraph with a splice in the middle. Here it is...

Future Centralization Of Goods And Services Could Lead To Universal Fascism

Predictions Of A Secular Futurist 

In 2008 we experienced what it means for a bank, or other company, to be judged "Too Big To Fail". It meant, when a company becomes so vital, with millions of us affected by its possible bankruptcy, that the government adjudicates it "Too Important To Fail" or its failure "Too Destructive To The Nation To Let It Fail". Prior to 2008, it had only happened once. President Jimmy Carter bailed out Chrysler in 1979 but Chrysler supposedly paid the money back. This time it was more like a government contribution. But because those mismanaged companies were not allowed to fail in 2008, and were bailed out with taxpayers' money (by politicians, not us), some of them have now gotten even bigger and deeper in trouble. They have now, indeed, become too big to fail, and they know it, without bringing down the world economy. Other companies, in the U.S., like Tesla, Google, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft and several international banks have grown past the real point of  Too Big To Fail. They have gotten our nation out on a limb and our government would not let them fail. That action could lead to U.S. national Fascism and then to international Fascism. Fascism is when a Centralized, autocratic Government embraces Business Enterprise, The Press, Economics, Social and Educational entities, to itself, and forcibly oppresses opposition. The State dictatorship becomes everything and the individual is nothing ... all, quote, "For the good of the people".

A so-called "Futurist", Dr. Robert Goldman, lays out a prediction of what the world has to look forward to considering embedded and developing trends. Some of what Dr. Goldman says is true, and undoubtedly, some may not be. But if most of what he predicts turns out to be our future here on earth, it could lead to a centralization of goods and services and a universal Fascist government. And that fits neatly with the one world government of the Antichrist. At any rate, it's worth reading. Some of these predictions would be big improvements in human welfare. And that is exactly what will sell it to the great majority of governments and the world population. RB

Software will disrupt most traditional industries in the next 5-10 years. 

Uber is just a software tool, they don't own any cars, and are now the biggest taxi company in the world. 

Airbnb is now the biggest hotel company in the world, although they don't own any properties. 

Artificial Intelligence:  Computers becoming exponentially better in understanding the world.  This year, a computer beat the best Go player in the world, 10 years earlier than expected. 

In the U.S., young lawyers already can't get jobs.  Because of IBM Watson, you can get legal advice (so far for more or less basic stuff) within seconds, with 90% accuracy compared with 70% accuracy when done by humans. 

So, if you study law, stop immediately.  There will be 90% fewer lawyers in the future, only specialists will remain. 

Watson already helps nurses diagnosing cancer, 4 times more accurate than human nurses.  Facebook now has a pattern recognition software that can recognize faces better than humans. In 2030, computers will become more intelligent than humans. 

Autonomous cars: In 2018 the first self-driving cars will appear for the public.  Around 2020, the complete industry will start to be disrupted.  You don't want to own a car anymore.  You will call a car with your phone, it will show up at your location and drive you to your destination.  You will not need to park it, you only pay for the driven distance and you can be productive while driving.  Our kids will never get a driver's license and will never own a car. 

It will change the cities because we will need 90-95% fewer cars for that.  We can transform former parking spaces into parks. 

1.2 million people die each year in car accidents worldwide.  We now have one accident every 60,000 miles (100,000 km), with autonomous driving that will drop to one accident in 6 million miles (10 million km).  That will save a million lives each year. 

Most car companies will probably go bankrupt.  Traditional car companies will try the traditional approach and try to build a better car, while tech companies (Tesla, Apple, Google) will take the revolutionary approach and build a computer on wheels 

Many engineers from Volkswagen and Audi are completely terrified of Tesla. 

Auto Insurance companies will have massive trouble because, without accidents, car insurance will become much cheaper.  Their car insurance business model will slowly disappear. 

Real estate will change. Because if you can work while you commute, people will move further away to live in a more beautiful neighborhood. 

Electric cars will become mainstream about 2020.  Cities will be less noisy because all new cars will run on electricity.  Electricity will become incredibly cheap and clean:  Solar production has been on an exponential curve for 30 years, and now you can see the burgeoning impact. 

Last year, more solar energy was installed worldwide than fossil.   Energy companies are desperately trying to limit access to the grid to prevent competition from home solar installations, but that can't last.  Technology will take care of that strategy. 

With cheap electricity comes cheap and abundant water.  Desalination of salt water now only needs 2kwh per cubic meter (@ 0.25 cents).  We don't have scarce water in most places, we only have scarce drinking water.  Imagine what will be possible if anyone can have as much clean water as he wants, for nearly no cost. 

Health innovations:  The Tricorder X price will be announced this year.  There are companies who will build a medical device (called the "Tricorder" from Star Trek) that works with your phone, which takes your retina scan, your blood sample, and you can breathe into it. 

It then analyses 54 biomarkers that will identify nearly any disease.  It will be cheap, so in a few years, everyone on this planet will have access to world-class medical analysis, nearly for free.  Goodbye, medical establishment. 

3D printing:  The price of the cheapest 3D printer came down from $18,000 to $400 within 10 years.  At the same time, it became 100 times faster.  All major shoe companies have already started 3D printing shoes. 

Some common spare airplane parts are already 3D printed in remote airports.  The space station now has a printer that eliminates the need for the large number of spare parts they used to keep in the past. 

At the end of this year, new smartphones will have 3D scanning possibilities.  You can then 3D scan your feet and print your perfect shoes at home. 

In China, they already 3D printed and built a complete 6-story office building...  By 2027, 10% of everything that's being produced will be 3D printed. 

Business opportunities: If you think of a niche you want to go in, ask yourself:  "In the future, do you think we will have that?", and if the answer is yes, how can you make that happen sooner? 

If it doesn't work with your phone, forget the idea.  And any idea designed for success in the 20th century is doomed to failure in the 21st century. 

Work: 70-80% of jobs will disappear in the next 20 years.  There will be a lot of new jobs, but it is not clear if there will be enough new jobs in such a small time. 

Agriculture:  There will be a $100 agricultural robot in the future. Farmers in 3rd world countries can then become managers of their field instead of working all day on their fields. 

Aeroponics will need much less water.  The first Petri dish that produced veal is now available and will be cheaper than cow produced veal in 2018.  Right now, 30% of all agricultural surfaces is used for cows.  Imagine if we don't need that space anymore. 

There are several start-ups who will bring insect protein to the market shortly. It contains more protein than meat.  It will be labeled as "alternative protein source" (because most people still reject the idea of eating insects). 

There is an app called "moodies" which can already tell in which mood you're in.  By 2020 there will be apps that can tell by your facial expressions, if you are lying.   Imagine a political debate where it's being displayed when they're telling the truth and when they're not. 

Bitcoin may even become the default reserve currency ... Of the world! 

Longevity:  Right now, the average lifespan increases by 3 months per year.  Four years ago, the lifespan used to be 79 years, now it's 80 years. The increase itself is increasing and by 2036, there will be more than one year increase per year  So, we all might live for a long time, probably way more than 100. 

Education:  The cheapest smartphones are already at $10 in Africa and Asia.  By 2020, 70% of all humans will own a smartphone.  That means, everyone has the same access to world-class education. 

Every child can use Khan Academy for everything a child needs to learn at school in First World countries. There have already been releases of software in Indonesia and soon there will be releases in Arabic, Swahili, and Chinese this summer. I can see enormous potential if we give the English app for free so that children in Africa and everywhere else can become fluent in English.  And that could happen within half a year.

He Who Does The Work Is Due All Of The Income Of His Labors

"...Who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of the fruit thereof? or who feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock? ...saith not the law the same also? For it is written in the law of Moses, thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen? Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope ...." 1 Cor. 7-10.  Hope for a full and just return.

In my opinion, this is a cardinal doctrine. It parallels the doctrine of Sowing and Reaping.   "Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.Gal.6:7.

God told Adam that he would, for the rest of his life, earn his food through labor.
  "In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread ..." Gen.3:19.   There is no second choice if a person isn't too young, too old or too handicapped to earn a living. It is absolutely essential that a person be free to expect (hope) to enjoy the fruit of his own labors. If he loses that "hope" he loses motivation to work hard and with consistency. It was not, in the plan of God, that a person is forced to pay the way of those who will not work. This is the irredeemable flaw in Socialism, that able-bodied workers, producers, pay the way of able-bodied consumers who either will not work or will not work to their full potential and will not be frugal with resources. As Margaret Thatcher said, "Socialism works until it runs out of other people's money."

Labor is also part of God's Ten Commandments. He created us to work by putting muscles on us which increase in strength with use. Not to be willing to work, if you are able, is a transgression of God's Law of Commandments for all humans. The 3rd Commandment:  "Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor and do all thy work." Ex.20:8-9.

 There you see it. Labor is commanded along with the "holy" day of rest that we have all heard about in a thousand sermons.

"...Sin is the transgression of the law." 1 John 3:4.  That includes any one of the Ten Commandments. If we kept all of them but one, we are guilty of them all. They are one thing ... God's Law. It is like, if you broke your arm, you are broken. Your whole body hurts. The Scripture says as much in James 2:11.

"For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law."

There are many benefits of obeying the Commandment to labor. Stronger body muscles, a healthier body, less tiring, a sharper mind, self-defense, enjoyment of other activities, self-image, admiration of friends and family, and respect of enemies. It is also an aid to a good night's rest ... sweet sleep.   "The sleep of a laboring man is sweet, whether he eat little or much." Ecc.5:12.

Therefore, to the extent of your ability, apply yourself to your share of the work and only then do you have the right to expect to have food to eat or the other benefits of labor such as self contentment, a happy outlook and "well" being.   
"...Eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee." Psm.128:2.

But, if you would rather gossip and sow division rather than work, and expect others to share the fruit of their labors with you or do your work for you, when you are able to do for yourself, God says you are a sluggard... 

"Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise." Pr.6:6.
"How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard?" Pr.6:9.
"The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing." Pr.20:4.
Not only are you a lazy, unwise, couch potato, sluggard and beggar, God's word says you are not to be fed ... Not by individual, church or government.
"Neither did we eat any man's bread for nought; but wrought with labor and travail night and day... When we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies. Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread. 2Thess.3:8-12.
We owe it to ourselves and to society to make our own living and save for our own retirement if we are not too handicapped to do so. And for those who are handicapped and unable to help themselves, another cardinal doctrine is that we show the love of God to them (Agape, Charity) and voluntary help and assist them, not by force of government and confiscatory taxation. Giving must be based on Agape love (charity), not upon force and the threat of punishment.
There is no heavenly reward for giving out of unwillingness, fear or intimidation.
Agape giving is one of the primary purposes of the church Jesus built, but the government has taken over that vital function by robbing motivated producers and giving their money to unmotivated takers, drug addicts, prostitutes and a few honestly handicapped and deserving recipients. Giving by the local church has the advantage of seeing the need and determining if the needy person is truly disabled, sick, a child, very old, wasteful, lazy or temporarily out of work.
Fully half of those on welfare do not truly qualify. The local church sees that because they are there in the same neighborhood. The government does not have that advantage. So work to change welfare programs which rob recipients of motivation and self-respect and many taxpayers of motivation to work if they can survive on welfare without working or paying taxes. It is a self-destructive program which discourages "plowing" and destroys "hope".
"...Who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of the fruit thereof? or who feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock? ...saith not the law the same also? For it is written in the law of Moses, thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen? Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope ...." 1 Cor. 7-10.
