• So-Called "Limited" Nuclear War Would Actually Be Very Bad and Kill Tens of Millions, Warns New Report

    Eoin Higgins, staff writer

    Even a limited nuclear war would be catastrophic and kill millions, a new study finds, despite the belief of the Pentagon that the U.S. military could effectively and safely use nuclear weapons in a conflict.

    The report, which Princeton University's Science and Global Security Lab presents in video form, affirms the position of anti-nuclear war activists that no use of nuclear weapons is sensible—or safe.

    "This terrifying new video shows how just one tactical nuke can trigger a U.S.-Russian war that kills tens of millions," Daryl G. Kimball, the director of the Arms Control Association, said in a tweet. "We urgently need sensible action to reduce and eliminate nuclear risk."

    Reaction to the video of the lab's findings emphasized the importance of the information, especially in a world where the U.S. military is considering using nuclear weapons as part of its conventional war strategy.

    "The whole world needs to see this video," tweeted John Hallam, a campaigner at Australia's People for Nuclear Disarmament.

    The lab developed the scenario after the Pentagon published, and shortly thereafter removed, a new draft of the Doctrine for Joint Nuclear Operations (pdf) on June 11.

    As Common Dreams reported at the time, the document raised questions from observers and antiwar advocates concerned over the hubris of the Pentagon to assume it could win a nuclear war.

    That document, combined with the scrapping of arms control treaties, led the researchers to develop testing for a scenario wherein the U.S. and Russia engage in a limited conflict.

    The results point to a devastating cost in lives in short order.

    "It is estimated that there would be more than 90 million people dead and injured within the first few hours of the conflict," the site reads.

    The scenario envisions a back and forth between the U.S. and Russia. The conflict begins with Russia striking the border of Germany and Poland in an effort to dissuade NATO aggression—but the reaction from the U.S. is to strike Kaliningrad, Russia's small territory on the Baltic Sea. From there, things get worse as both countries launch ever-increasing barrages of bombs at one another. Within hours, over 34 million people are dead and over 57 million are injured, to say nothing of the ongoing effects from radiation and nuclear winter.

    The study is "based on independent assessments of current U.S. and Russian force postures, nuclear war plans, and nuclear weapons targets," according to the lab.

    "It uses extensive data sets of the nuclear weapons currently deployed, weapon yields, and possible targets for particular weapons, as well as the order of battle estimating which weapons go to which targets in which order in which phase of the war to show the evolution of the nuclear conflict from tactical, to strategic to city-targeting phases," the lab's summary reads.

  • Positive Outlook September 8 The LORD has done great things for us; We are glad. Psalm 126:3

    “Some Christians,” wrote Charles Spurgeon, “are sadly prone to look on the dark side of everything, and to dwell more upon what they have gone through than upon what God has done for them.” As you go through, don’t focus on the growling enemies nor the threatening wilderness, but on the promise.

    Refuse to let past defeats and pains hobble you. Rather, celebrate what God did in bringing you through the crisis. Remember, He did “great things” for you back there. Keep that fact in the center of your vision as you go through, and you will have strength to go on. https://mailchi.mp/6ad6f2946fdf/the-truest-freedom-you-can-ever-experience-452957?e=9cbe669f39

  • While these ideas continue to "Progress" and change over time, this is how Christian Television says that the Modern Church is Reforming, and describes the path to Salvation in the Catholic Church. Neither of these seem to agree with what Luther said, or what the Bible says.

    The Roman Catholic Church believes Faith + Works = Salvation.

    The Modern Reformation Believes Faith = Salvation + Works.
    James 2:17 "Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone."

    The original Lutheran Reformation taught that Faith + Repentance = Salvation.

    Notice how they have removed Repentance, and replaced it with Works? The idea with the Modern Church, is that if you have Faith, and are Saved, then Good Works will be a result. The issue is that they don't want you to accept or follow God's Laws, so there is no standard for Good works. The knowledge of Good and Evil is defined and confirmed by every Word that comes from God Matthew 4:4.

    The Works of the Catholic Church, that I am against, are confession to a priest, having a Catholic Father (Matthew 23), Praying to Marry, and the Saints (1st Samuel 28), and anything else God did not command us not to do. Jesus said: "It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." Matthew 4:4 KJV Today many in the Catholic Church are Baptized into the Church, but never receive Jesus as their savior. This also happens in many other Churches where people are Baptized into the Church, and don't receive salvation.

    Isaiah 55:7! Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto YHWH, and He will have mercy upon him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon!

    Ezekiel 36:27-38
    27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. 28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God. 29 I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you. 30 And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine among the heathen. 31 Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations. 32 Not for your sakes do I this, saith the Lord God, be it known unto you: be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel. 33 Thus saith the Lord God; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the wastes shall be builded. 34 And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by. 35 And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited. 36 Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that I the Lord build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I the Lord have spoken it, and I will do it. 37 Thus saith the Lord God; I will yet for this be enquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them; I will increase them with men like a flock. 38 As the holy flock, as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn feasts; so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men: and they shall know that I am the Lord.

  • Paradise
    "Let Paradise, California, be the wakeup call for our entire nation.
    We need a Green New Deal to address the climate crisis.

    Paradise-Is Down A Two-Lane Blacktop
    Narrative Poem By R Andrew Ohge
    As we close in on the 2020 American Political Race-this poem rings more true than it did in 2002 when I first wrote it. If we aren't ready to do what needs to be done to get this for ourselves and children, perhaps we deserve to be serfs in the oligarchy we'll get instead.
    [The Way 'Paradise ' SHOULD Be?]

    First, we were drawn by the land,
    enticed by the promise of freedom…
    fresh faces in new places, where
    we built our farms, our stores, mills
    smithies, with our own dreams
    and our own Hands, paying our way
    with the sweat of our brows,
    leaving our bones and legacies
    as our testimony to those
    who would follow.

    Then, great factories replaced
    the smithies, concrete towers
    supplanted the wheel mills, and
    we were drawn from the land
    to the growing cities for what we
    believed were better dreams,
    brighter futures,…"the good life."

    The farms we left were swallowed
    by corporations, the family
    store was neglected by the lure
    and flash of the corporate chains.

    We were the great middle class,
    living a vision, that for most of us,
    never truly existed, leaving
    nothing, but broken dreams
    as our legacy.

    Times and paradigms pass.
    Some of our small towns just died,
    some were swallowed by the
    circling cities, others are
    barely hanging on, yet,
    here and there, new pioneers
    are returning, bring their
    fresh faces to the old places,
    rediscovering the old ways and
    creating new ones, as America
    finds her roots again.

    Hollywood, Broadway, & Prime Time
    doesn't show our true image.

    Our story isn't on CNN or in USA Today.

    We've journeyed back, off the
    Interstate, rebuilding the
    Courthouse square, starting farms,
    building houses, stores, and families,
    infusing our enterprises with
    faith, truth, love, patriotism, and a
    determination to not allow our
    unique visions or our new freedom
    to ever be swallowed by mere
    sound-bites, glamour, glitz,
    or pulp fiction.

    The America and World
    we must become is the one
    we always knew in our hearts.

    We had only to remember that
    Paradise is down a
    two-lane blacktop,
    where the tree of
    wisdom waits for all
    who prefer revelation
    over information.

    The super highways
    and bypasses, the
    jets, planes, buses,
    and trains can only take you
    by the "American Dream".

    The turn down that two-lane
    is a calculated decision
    to arrive there, a journey
    you take, only if you're
    hungry for a new vision,
    if you're ready to put down
    some new roots, and make
    your own legacy with
    your own hands and the
    sweat of your own brow.

    If you've caught
    that pioneer spirit,
    then here's the place
    to draw close to the tap
    roots of the "American Dream",
    where the juices flow
    strong and rich, near the power,
    right at the source.

    You have truly arrived,
    friend, for you've
    come to a powerful
    place to begin anew,
    where you can find purpose,
    change the landscape, acquire
    wisdom and real estate, create
    your own legacy, where your
    accomplishments and children
    earn respect and receive honor,
    where your babies and bones
    are attended with reverent
    tender care by real peacemakers.

    Oh yes...if you destroy,
    mar, steal, or harm
    those and that which
    is in their care,
    you'll have a fight
    on your hands, the like
    you'll not soon forget.

    No, real peacemakers are
    the architects, the restorers,
    the creators and shapers,the
    healers, the comforters and
    nurturers, the sowers and
    caretakers of paradise.

    They are recreating and
    shaping their future and
    shall be counted blessed.

    No need for a plane, bus,
    or a train to come.

    We're waiting at the
    gates of paradise at the
    end of any two-lane blacktop,
    beckoning, as Lady Liberty
    has for over a century,
    "Send us Your tired, your
    poor, your downtrodden,
    struggling to be free…"

    We'll be waiting.

If you've caught that pioneer spirit, then here's the place to draw close to the tap roots of the "American Dream", where the juices flow strong and rich, near the power, right at the source. You have truly arrived, friend, for you've come to a powerful place to begin anew, where you can find purpose, change the landscape, acquire wisdom and real estate, create your own legacy, where your accomplishments and children earn respect and receive honor, where your babies and bones are attended with reverent tender care by real peacemakers. Oh yes...if you destroy, mar, steal, or harm those and that which is in their care, you'll have a fight on your hands, the like you'll not soon forget. No, real peacemakers are the architects, the restorers, the creators and shapers,the healers, the comforters and nurturers, the sowers and caretakers of paradise. They are recreating and shaping their future and shall be counted blessed. No need for a plane, bus, or a train to come. We're waiting at the gates of paradise at the end of any two-lane blacktop, beckoning, as Lady Liberty has for over a century, "Send us Your tired, your poor, your downtrodden, struggling to be free…" We'll be waiting. https://youtu.be/sYIoYgvuNe4 Bernie Sanders 9/7/19-Narrative By R Ohge 2002

    "Let Paradise, California, be the wakeup call for our entire nation. We need a Green New Deal to address the climate crisis.

  • Bernie WINS Climate Change Town Hall
    CNN’s climate crisis town hall on Wednesday night was an unprecedented seven hours of discussion on climate change with 10 of the Democratic 2020 presidential contenders.

    It was also the most substantive discussion of climate change policies ever broadcast on primetime television.

    Each candidate was given a 40-minute segment, meaning they could provide long, nuanced answers to hard questions on the most far-reaching issue of our time.

    There was a lot that could have gone wrong, so it’s remarkable so much went right.

    The town hall easily outshone the muddled discussion in the paltry half-hour or so devoted to climate change across eight hours of official Democratic debates.
