Limudah - a doutrina dos apóstolos nazarenos   

Nós da Comunidade Beth Yisrael Netzarim Sar Shalom que fomos chamados e eleitos para levar o nome de YHWH, com a meta de permanecer firme e fiel aos ensinamentos de Yahshua Hamashiach e fundamentada na Halakhah(Yahshua Torah estilo!) dos Sh´luchim(Apóstolos) e Nevyim(Profetas) Netzarim, é com muita alegria que adotamos definitivamente o Limudah como parte dos estatutos e regulamentos do Ministério Mundial Sar Shalom no processo de Teshuvah completo de Efrayim e Yahudah para nossa querida terra de Yisrael e bem como na recepção e acolhimento dos Guerim/prosélitos advindos do meio dos gentios, pois abba YHWH também chamou um remanescente do meio das nações para fazer parte de sua Comunidade Eleita de Yisrael. Veja o que diz as notas da Beth haNesarim de Jerusalém acerca do Limudah, leiamos:
“Está em Atos 15:25-29, denominado de "Limudah", comumente referido no ocidente como “Didache”, traduzido do Aramaico o dialeto da Kahal de Jerusalém. Esta é a Carta Apostólica que foi escrita pelo Primeiro Conselho Apostólico por volta do ano 50 D.M debaixo da direção do Shaliach +Mar Ya'aqub haTzadik (“São Thiago o Justo”). Esta foi enviada através de +Mar Shaul (São Paulo) aos Crentes gentios com respeito ao que se esperava que eles seguissem toda a observância da Torah”.

A riquissima enciclopédia judaica assim descreve o Limudah(Didache):

Um manual de instrução para prosélitos, aprovada no início da “Sinagoga cristã” (Nazarenos), e transformado pela alteração e ampliação da Igreja em um manual. Descoberto entre uma coleção de manuscritos antigos cristãos em Constantinopla por Bryennios em 1873, e publicados por ele em 1883, que despertou grande interesse entre os estudiosos. O livro, mencionado por Eusebius ( "Hist. Eccl." Iii. 25) e Atanásio ( "Festal cartas", 39), no quarto século, tinham-se perdido desde o século IX.
Por uma questão, evidentemente, este manual judeu não podia ser utilizado na sua totalidade pela Igreja a partir do momento em que ela se desviou das práticas judaicas e pontos de vista. Todo o livro tem caído em desordem, e é muito mal compreendido e mal interpretado por estudiosos cristãos, que julgam só a partir do ponto de vista da Igreja. As ideias fundamentais do "Didache"(Limudah) são indiscutivelmente judaica”. Conteúdo da "Didache"; enciclopédia judaica/jewish encyclopedia


A Doutrina dos apóstolos está baseada no entendimento completo da Torah que o nosso Adom Yahshua veio trazer para seu povo Israel, então os Efraimitas que são as 10 tribos perdidos de Israel que estavam gentilizados entre os goyim e resgatados por nosso Adom Yahshua e os Guerim/prosélitos dentre os goyim não Israelitas (gentios); também chamados para fazer parte de seu povo resgatado; Eles não devem observar toda a Torah de imediato, inicialmente foi aprovado apenas 04 mitsvot(mandamentos) como parte da proposta e do pacto que YHWH fez a eles para que Pudessem adentrar na Comunidade do Israel de YHWH. Gradualmente os grupos de Efraimitas e Guerim estavam recebendo as lições inicias da Torah de Yahshua (Arrependimento, Fé, Batismos...etc); e a Cada Shabat tinham como obrigação ir numa Sinagoga para aprender progressivamente toda a lição da Torah de acordo com o ciclo Septanual da Torah(subdivido em ciclos trienais), já que o Shabat é o sinal de ser Yisrael, é um sinal entre YHWH e seu Povo. Vemos claramente no Limudah que Yahshua não veio fundar nenhuma entidade pagã separada de Yisrael e nem desobediente aos mandamentos de Abba YHWH, E nem viver disperso entre os gentios, mas RESGATAR MASSIVAMENTE SEU POVO DISPERSO PARA LEVAR SEU KADOSH NOME E LEVANTAR A TENDA DE DAVID QUE SÃO AS 12 TRIBOS DE YISRAEL NO LUGAR QUE ELE ESCOLHEU, Em Matityah/mateus 15.24 Ele diz claramente: “Eu não fui enviado senão as ovelhas perdidas da Casa de Yisrael”. Amein!
Selah! Medita!
Baruch haShem YHWH!

          The fast Day of Erev Shabbos Parshas Chukas   
By Rabbi Yehuda Spitz
‘Zos Chukas HaTorah’ There is no mention in the Gemara of the week of Parshas Chukas being one of tragedy, nor is it mentioned by the Rambam, nor Tur, nor Shulchan Aruch! Not even in the Siman where tragedies and proper days to fast are mentioned, Orach Chaim 580! In fact, most are wholly unfamiliar with anything specifically attributed to this week. Yet, the Magen Avraham, citing the Sefer HaTanya[1] (an earlier source that the famous Kabbalistic work of the Shulchan Aruch HaRav), tells of a terrible, albeit fascinating, historical tragedy.

Friday of Fire

The Magen Avraham prefaces his terrible tale by quoting certain writings[2]
explaining that it is “worthwhile for every Jew to cry for the burning of the Torah”. He then proceeds to tell of a customary annual fast specifically for this purpose, on Erev Shabbos Parshas Chukas. On that day, in the year 1242, 20 wagonloads (other versions state 24) filled with Gemaros and Talmudic literature, were burned in Paris by agents of the Church and King Louis IX. The pretext was a public debate between an apostate monk and several of the most eminent rabbinical authorities in France; the official verdict against them a foregone conclusion[3]. The impact and importance of this loss was tremendous. Keep in mind that this occurred over 200 years before the printing press was invented, and each of these volumes was a priceless, handwritten manuscript. In fact, this was considered such an enormous loss for Klal Yisrael, that the famed Maharam M’Rottenburg[4], an eyewitness, composed an elegy for our loss, ‘Sha’ali Serufa Ba’Aish’, deemed so essential, that it is incorporated into the Kinos recited every Tisha B’Av (Kinah 41).

The great rabbis at the time, at a loss to understand the extent of the tragedy, inquired of Heaven by means of a dream (known as a she’elas chalom) to discover whether this terrible event had been so decreed by Hashem. The heavenly reply was a succinct three words ‘Da Gezeiras Oraysa’. This is the Aramaic translation (see Targum Onkelus) of the opening verses to Parshas Chukas, ‘Zos Chukas HaTorah’, ‘These are the decrees of the Torah’ (Bamidbar Ch. 19, verse 2). The Rabbanim understood from this cryptic reply that the burning of the Talmud was indeed Heavenly decreed. Moreover, they gleaned that it was due to the proximity of the Parsha that the tragedy transpired, and not the day of the month[5].

Therefore, and as opposed to every other fast on the Jewish calendar, instead of a specific day established as a fast day, this one, designated a Taanis for Yechidim (fast for individuals), was set annually on the Erev Shabbos preceding Parshas Chukas. For those fasting, Asarah B’Teves would not be the only Taanis that practically occurs on a Friday[6]!

Retribution for the Rambam?

Rav Hillel of Verona, a talmid of Rabbeinu Yonah, and another eyewitness to these events, wrote a famous letter[7] in which he considered the burning of the Talmud as a clear sign of Divine anger and retribution for the burning of the works of the Rambam, in the exact same place in Paris not even forty days prior!

After the Rambam’s passing (in 1204), many great scholars who did not agree with his philosophical observations in his ‘Moreh Nevuchim’ and ‘Sefer HaMada’ banned his sefarim, with a tremendous controversy erupting throughout the Torah world[8]. Eventually, a number of his detractors submitted copies of his work to the monks of the Dominican Order to determine whether the Rambam’s works contained heretical ideas. The Dominican Friars, naturally, summarily concluded that the Rambam’s writings were not only false, but blasphemous. In 1234, inMontpelier, France, they publicly collected and burned all copies they found of ‘Moreh Nevuchim’ and ‘Sefer HaMada’. Similarly, in 1242, afanatical mob burned many of the Rambam’s writings in Paris. Less than 40 days later, at the exact same site, the 24 wagonloads of the Talmud were burned, on Erev Shabbos Parshas Chukas[9].

According to Rav Hillel’s letter, the famed Rabbeinu Yonah, one of the Rambam’s primary opponents, took the Talmud burning as a Divine sign, and publicly and vociferously denounced his former position and opposition against the Rambam’s writings and instead emphatically concluded “Moshe Emes V’Toraso Emes, V’Kulanu Bada’in!” “Moshe and his Torah are true (here referring to the Rambam), while we all are liars”[10]. He planned on traveling to the Rambam’s grave (in Teverya) and begging forgiveness. Some say this tragic incident was the catalyst of Rabbeinu Yonah’s writing what came to be known as his Magnum Opus, ‘Shaarei Teshuva’.

Further Grounds for Fasting

After discussing the burning of the Talmud, the Magen Avraham offers another reason for fasting. On this very day, Erev Shabbos Chukas, two entire cities of Jews were brutally decimated, as part of the Gezeiras Ta”ch V’Ta”t, the Cossack massacres led by Bogdan Chmielnitsky ym”sh[11] in 1648 - 1649, as recorded by the Shach.

Although most know of the Shach as simply one of the preeminent halachic authorities, due to his extensive and authoritative commentary and rulings on the Shulchan Aruch, few know that he also wrote a sefer titled ‘Megillas Eifa’[12], detailing the horrific slaughter of tens of thousands (possibly hundreds of thousands!) of Jews (and hundreds of entire communities) during these terrifying years. Among his entries he mentions the two cities that were wiped out on this same day in the year 1648 (5408). Hence, the Magen Avraham avers, that it is proper to fast (Taanis Yachid) on Erev Shabbos Chukas, due to both of these tragedies happening on this same day in history.
          Hold On to Your Jaw, Because This Is What OITNB's "Skinhead" Helen Really Looks Like   

Image Source: Netflix

By now, most Orange Is the New Black fans know just how different the cast looks outside of their Litchfield jumpsuits, but few of the makeunders are as jaw-dropping as the one Francesca Curran agreed to while playing "Skinhead" Helen. With her shaved head and striking face and neck tattoos, Helen has always been one of the most recognizable characters on the show, despite not being one of the leads. In the show's fifth season, however, the actress gets way more screentime than she has in past seasons, so it made us wonder: what does she look like outside of her OITNB costume?

Spoiler alert: SHE'S FREAKIN' GORGEOUS.

Luckily Francesca's Instagram account is a veritable treasure trove of shocking before-and-after shots chronicling her transformation into the white supremacist character. Although she fully committed and shaved off all of her hair, she's not afraid to rock some pretty glam wigs during her downtime from filming.

While speaking with Business Insider, Francesca revealed that despite her character's intimidating look, she's actually "girly" at heart. "In real life, I'm so feminine. I'm so girly. I love my makeup, I love my jewelry and all that," she said. "So to really be stripped of all that . . . The first time I was like, okay, wow. I found myself in the mirror and was like, this is a striking . . . what a difference."

That's not to say she isn't tough, though. During a recent chat with POPSUGAR, she told us that she was thrilled to be doing her own stunts this season. "We did combat training, and it was just the craziest experience because we have this amazing guy, Greg, and we have a whole team of guys that come in and show us how to do these crazy flips and wall kicks and some of the stuff we do, we'll get professional stunt people in," she explained. "But the fun part for me this season was while some of the other girls were having stunt people do it, they, for some reason, had a crazy sense of faith in me. And they were like, 'Hey, do you think you can handle this?' And being the crazy person that I am, I was like, 'Absolutely.'"

At least she didn't have to worry about her hair getting snagged on anything during training, right? Francesca has also shared a few peeks at what her normal, natural hair looks like when the show goes on hiatus and she has the chance to grow some of it back.

Her transformation even gives America's Next Top Model a run for its money (and that's a show that once attempted a "beard weave," so that's really saying something).

          The Clarke Boland Big Band is "All Smiles"   
© -Steven Cerra, copyright protected; all rights reserved.


Georges Paczynski, the author of the immensely important, Une Histoire de la Batterie de Jazz, which won the “Prix Charles Delauney 2000,” offered this succinct, background information about the Kenny Clarke/Francy Boland Big Band:

“The C.B.B.B. - The Clarke Boland Big Band - was formed in 1962 through the efforts of Francy Boland and Kenny Clarke. The pianist and the drummer wanted lo form a European orchestra whose sound would be instantly recognizable.

After recording in Cologne on May 18 and 19, 1961. with a smaller group - Kenny Clarke/Francy Boland (The Golden Eight) - the two leaders decided to put together a bigger band, and on December 13. 1961, the recording of Kenny Clarke/Francy Boland ("Jazz is Universal") took place. Among the thirteen musicians were the future mainstays of the band: the American trumpeter Benny Bailey, the English alto sax player Derek Humble, and the trombone player from Sweden, Aake Persson. After the success of this disc, the decision was made to increase the band even further; on January 25. 26 and 27. 1963 the Kenny Clarke/Francy Boland Big Band recorded in Cologne with 21 musicians. Throughout its career, the band never included less than 12 nationalities.

The personalities of the two leaders. Kenny and Francy. were directly opposite of those of the legendary big band leaders, iron-fisted megalomaniacs like Buddy Rich or Benny Goodman. Not only did Francy write the arrangements for a given instrument, but in thinking of a particular musician in the band, and composed according to the sound, phrasing and style of the individual. Team spirit reigned in the C.B.B.B. Each musician was aware of his importance in creating a good ensemble sound.

The name of Kenny Clarke is definitively associated with the birth of bop drumming. Following in the footsteps of Jo Jones and Sidney Catlett. it is to him that we owe the fact that still today the rhythm is played on the ride cymbal, with snare drum/bass drum punctuations. Jazz lovers see Kenny primarily as a small group drummer, forgetting that he was also a great big band drummer [check out Kenny’s playing in Dizzy Gillespie’s first big band in the 1940’s].

Drummer/leaders have existed from the earliest times in jazz. After "Papa Jack" Laine. there were Ben Pollack. Chick Webb, Gene Krupa. Buddy Rich, Don Lamond. Mel Lewis... the list (and the beat) goes on. The C.B.B.B. is situated in the grand traditions of the big bands. The basic musical concept was of a rhythmic foundation on which the entire orchestra reposed. Here the role of the drummer is clearly vital; along with the bassist, he plays throughout the piece, and is both accompanist and soloist.

But this key role is not without its disadvantages; the drummer has incomparably less freedom than in a small group. He has to memorize the arrangement, playing strictly what has already been laid down, while still leaving room for improvised fills. Some famous drummers have never succeeded in imposing such discipline on themselves. Others have adapted magnificently to it. Such was the case with Kenny, who was able to play with what I will call "controlled madness". In the big band, he played with a big band drummer's phrasing - unlike, for example. Mel Lewis, who in a big band setting performed with exactly the same vocabulary as in a quartet. ...

Running a big band poses all kinds of difficulties, financial and organizational among others. The C.B.B.B. lasted 11 years, and broke up in 1973. It was in no sense a revolutionary band, but there was within it a fundamental and precious element: an intense love of playing. Francy Boland and Kenny Clarke had the great merit of believing that the formation of a European jazz orchestra was possible, despite the supposedly insurmountable obstacles. They believed... and they were right... and we now reap the benefit.”

Georges overview of the Clarke Boland Big Band - known to its many fans as the CBBB - assumes a new relevance with the CD reissue with enhanced audio quality of one of its later recordings on MPS - The Kenny Clarke Francy Boland Big Band - “ALL SMILES."

ABOUT THIS RECORD - by Stefan Franzen [translated by Martin Cook]

“Without ever making concessions to the trend of the moment, the Kenny Clarke Francy Boland Big Band was the embodiment of the timeless art of the jazz orchestra. Its play was proof positive that a jazz big band compiled of top-flite musicians from both sides of the Atlantic could take off and soar. Regarded as the most important big band outside of the US, this bi-continental orchestra recorded over two dozen albums, close to a third of these under the SABA and MRS labels. Recorded in May, 1968, All Smiles was one of the Bands highpoints. The album exhibits a style that became synonymous with this US-European enterprise: it not only swung it was the perfect vehicle for Bolands sophisticated modern arrangements. Trumpeters Benny Bailey and Idrees Sulieman, saxophonists Johnny Griffin and Ronnie Scott, as well as special guest vibraphonist Dave Pike are some of the jazz giants among the soloists in this 17-man combo who turn out some masterly short portraits. From the fleet-footed waltz I’m All Smiles to the bluesy party piece, By Strauss and the sensuous theme from Gloria, the journey continues on through to the furious John Phillip Sousa finale, High School Cadets. Preferring varicolored intricacy over massive walls of sound, The Kenny Clarke/Francy Boland Big Band stood up against the constant flow of momentary fads, remaining true to the inventive tradition of the great big bands.”

Original Liner Notes - by Manfred Miller

[Warning these have some syntactical and grammatical challenges for native speakers of English. I decided to represent them in their original translation as I do not speak enough German to attempt my own.]

The one window is open. Hubbub comes up from the street and into the room that is in Cologne's elegant Hohe Strasse/High Street (no thoroughfare!) on the first floor above the branch of some bank. The large, plain writing-table hides itself under paper. Telegrams, notes, contracts, excerpts pile up to several layers. Two of the three phones at least are constantly in operation. On the second table, in a corner, there, too, is scarcely a spot left for an ash-tray. Sheets of notes, a bunch of newspapers, at least ten tape boxes. If a film chose to feature a manager's office like that everybody would laugh at the cliche of overburdening.

The man who hired this room does work hard. It is not that sort of work, however, which the German treasury of proverbs has always rated higher than fun. The man offers his latest product music. Powerfully swinging, precise, intelligent music, music that interests head and feet and everything in between. “All Smiles" is going to be the title of the new Clarke-Boland Big Band album. The man has to shout to make that understood. The two loudspeakers are turned on to the limits of their capacity. The one window is still open...

Gigi Campi never listens to his tapes quietly. An American trombonist, who for some time belonged to the CBBB, once complained. "Funny band. No dynamics", to the protest of his colleague Nat Peck "Yes there are! One is loud, the other is louder..." An exaggerated sentence, no doubt. Yet like every good exaggeration it catches some truth. The CBBB does not play for self-forgetting, absorbed listeners. If it provokes self-forgetfulness, it is that of rhythmical ecstasy. The CBBB does not know the charms of the morbid. This is hopelessly sound and optimistic music. All Smiles.

The Clarke-Boland guys stand for Ellington's fundamental truth: "It don't mean a thing..." It is not by chance that this band plays with two drummers - as if Klook Clarke alone were not a deuce of a swinger. Once his near namemate Kenny Clare acted as a substitute for Clarke who was prevented from making a date. The Clarke indemnification thrilled the band, he was invited to the next session. Klook personally persuaded the English studio musician to become a constant member with the CBBB - as a percussionist.

"Then there was one number", Clare reports, "a Turkish march thing on which I played snare drum. On the playback it sounded pretty good together, just like one drummer. There were some talks. The next time would I bring my drums along, too? Let's see, if it works with both of us playing together. It worked."

Indeed, Clarke and Clare together play like one musician; only that one musician alone could never realise all they play together. Clare: "There are many who would like to get that springy kind of beat Klook gets. I would, too. When I'm with him I can play that way without even thinking about it. As soon as I'm away from him I can't do it anymore. Strange. I have yet to figure it out." Whatsoever may be the key to this secret - the result is a fabulous co-ordination of the two drummers. The first piece - LET'S FACE THE MUSIC AND DANCE - is an example of this. The fills Klook on the snare drum (for stereo listeners left channel) and Clare on the bass drum do in concert seem as if sprung up from one and the same feeling; and a swinging feeling into the bargain.

It would be wrong, however, to list the CBBB simply under the rubric "powerhouse.” The co-leader, arranger, and pianist Francy Boland has too many ideas for that. You will never catch upon Boland copying simple riffs nor - as the legend goes - exercising. SWEET AND LOVELY forces out of the standard melody continually fresh versions, new harmonic nuances and shades of sound, variations in a strict sense (into which Johnny Griffin excellently joins with a concentrated solo citing motives from the theme once and again): that is - also - an intellectual delight. As the British musical journalist Kenny Graham noted, Francy Boland does not care for trends. Harmonically scored choruses for the reed section have become rare in jazz. Yet Francy dedicates an entire number to the saxophones and with numbers such as YOU STEPPED OUT OF A DREAM, GET OUT OF TOWN and WHEN YOUR LOVER HAS GONE shows what other arrangers do not care to miss.

Certainly who besides Boland disposes of such a reed section? The musicians of the CBBB do not know a comparison to Derek Humble's lead alto that is relaxed and vigorous at once, and ever riding the tip of the beat wave - they give a tired shrug even to the most renowned names. Each of the three tenor saxophonists takes a fine solo - "Li'l Giant" Griffin justifies his nickname time and again. Ronnie Scott blows a virile and straight solo in Gershwin's homage to the king of waltz BY STRAUSS. Tony Coe tells of Dame GLORIA'S merits with rhapsodic vehemence (,,a masterpiece", says Gigi Campi): and Sahib Shihab, who in the Barbara-Streisand-title I'M ALL SMILES solos on flute, is “the outstanding baritone saxophonist of modern jazz" according to Joachim Ernst Berendt. Each of the five reed men is himself a star with a distinguished style of his own, and yet jointly they make up a homogenous and disciplined section. Whosoever generated the rumour that precision and musical temperament were exclusive to one another; he has to be refuted by these five musicians.

And the same applies to the other sections. Benny Bailey, the brilliant, willful lead trumpeter, blows the delicately musical flugelhorn solo in I'M GLAD THERE IS YOU. Cole Porter's GET OUT OF TOWN is meant for Jimmy Deuchar's elegant trumpet and for Ake Persson's powerful trombone-Idrees Sulieman, who in the Clarke-Boland combos mostly comes out with untamed attacca and splendid bop phrases, shows off a different side now: a simple melodic lead and a warm tone in LET'S FACE THE MUSIC AND DANCE and in the standard ballad of WHEN YOUR LOVER HAS GONE, from which he chooses the first few bars to set out a well-controlled improvisation that does not waste a note.

To those who are still in the dark the Sousa-march HIGH SCHOOL CADETS tells what is the matter with the CBBB. That drives on straight away like - well, no: a steam roller is not likely to go so easily at 250 km/h. You had better not try to sit still to these pieces: Let's face the music and dance. Still one thing to tell you: perhaps you really ought to shut that window now.”

TO EVERY AGE ITS SOUND by Dirk Sommer, reissue producer [Translated by Martin Cook]

Yes, we have worked on the sound of the music that was stored on tapes, some of which are over 40 years old, before they were transferred to the lacquers that are used for the vinyl record production. In the music business this is commonly known as remastering. However, it says nothing about how intensively and with what a sense of purpose mastering engineer Christoph Stickel and I have worked on modifying and improving the sound of the original tapes. Of course as with any LP that appears in the triple-a-series, all the procedures took place using only the finest analogue equipment. As the headline - modeled after the Vienna Secession movement's motto: 'to every age its art' - already indicates, every period has its own typical sound esthetic. We felt that fitting the MPS records to the way recordings sound today would be a sort of sacrilege. As a result, we have simply redressed a couple of traces of aging as well as small inconsistencies in the sound that, because of the technological limitations of that time, were not optimally dealt with on the original recordings. So enjoy some of the most exciting jazz albums of the 1970's and 80's the way they originally sounded - despite or because of our remasterings!”

"The Debate on the Resurrection of the Dead in Late Antiquity. Traces of Jewish-Christian Interaction in the Talmud"

In this workshop Professor Morgenstern will concentrate on a larger passage in the tractate Sanhedrin of the Babylonian Talmud. The passage shows that it was difficult for the Rabbis to prove exegetically, from the Hebrew Bible, that there will be a resurrection of the dead at the end of time. Morgenstern will discuss new approaches in interpreting this passage. 

Both the lecture and the seminar take place in Aud. 2, MF.

Russians were holocausted by Bolshevik Jews
I am part Russian and will continue to expose the Jews behind the New World Order.  The same tactics and death camps are here in america just waiting to be used.  we know from the apocalypse they will "behead" Christians that is why there were 30,000 guillotines sent to these FEMA camps.  You may ask why beheading?  This is where the "organ harvesting" business comes into play.  It is not conspiracy folks get your head out of the sand.  The Jews are now saying their Messianic Era will start in about 5 years or so hence why I warn you that Antichrist Maitreya is about to arrive onto the scene.
SOURCE
WARNING: Sensitive Material
Below is a excerpt from the book, ‘under the sign of the scorpion’ which describes some of the methods of torture and mass murder the Jewish Communists (Bolsheviks) sadistically inflicted onto the Russian Christian people. I warn you, you will be horrified. This is the real holocaust that happened in the 20th century, the Russian Holocaust, carried out by blood-thirsty and demonic bolshevik jews. I highlighted the parts I found to be most gut-wrenching in red.
Here it must be pointed out that the Cheka was under the control of Jews, according to documents now available. Much of this was known already in 1925. The researcher Larseh wrote in his book “The Blood-Lust of Bolshevism” (Wurttemberg, p. 45) that 50 per cent of the Cheka consisted of Jews with Jewish names, 25 per cent were Jews who had taken Russian names. All the chiefs were Jews. Lenin was well informed about all those serious crimes. All of the documents were placed on his desk. Lenin answered: “Put more force into the terror… shoot every tenth person, place all the suspects in concentration camps!”
Image result for under the sign of the scorpion
Lenin incarcerated people without any sentence, despite the establishment of revolutionary tribunals, as was the case in France under the Jacobins. Lenin actually claimed that the concentration camps were schools of labour. (Mikhail Heller and Alexander Nekrich, doctors of history, “Utopia in Power”, London, 1986, p. 67.) Lenin also claimed that the factory was the workers’ only school. They did not need any other education. He emphasised that anyone who could only do simple arithmetic could run a factory. Just like the terror of the Jacobins in France, the Jewish Bolshevik functionaries used barges to drown people in. Bela Kun (actually Aaron Kohn) and Roza Zemlyachka (actually Rozalia Zalkind) drowned Russian 110 officers in this way in the Crimea in the autumn of 1920. (Igor Bunich, “The Party’s Gold”, St. Petersburg, 1992, p. 73.)
The unusually cruel Jewish Chekist Mikhail Kedrov (actually Zederbaum) drowned 1092 Russian officers in the White Sea in the spring of 1920. Lenin and his accomplices did not arrest just anyone. They executed those most active in society, the independent thinkers. Lenin gave orders to kill as many students as possible in several towns. The Chekists arrested every youth wearing a school cap. They were liquidated because Lenin believed the coming Russian intellectuals would be a threat to the Soviet regime. (Vladimir Soloukhin, “In the Light of Day”, Moscow 1992, p. 40.) The role of the Russian intellectuals in society was taken over by the Jews. Many students (for example in Yaroslavl) learned quickly and hid their school caps. Afterwards, the Chekists stopped all suspect youths and searched their hair for the stripe of the school cap. If the stripe was found, the youth was killed on the spot.
The author Vladimir Soloukhin revealed that the Chekists were especially interested in handsome boys and pretty girls. These were the first to be killed. It was believed that there would be more intellectuals among attractive people. Attractive youths were therefore killed as a danger to society. No crime as terrible as this has hitherto been described in the history of the world. The terror was co-ordinated by the Chekist functionary Joseph Unschlicht. How did they go about the murders? The Jewish Chekists flavoured murder with various torture methods. In his documentary “The Russia We Lost”, the director Stanislav Govorukhin told how the priesthood in Kherson were crucified. The archbishop Andronnikov in Perm was tortured: his eyes were poked out, his ears and nose were cut off.

In Kharkov the priest Dmitri was undressed. When he tried to make the sign of the cross, a Chekist cut off his right hand. Several sources tell how the Chekists in Kharkov placed the victims in a row and nailed their hands to a table, cut around their wrists with a knife, poured boiling water over the hands and pulled the skin off. This was called “pulling off the glove”. In other places, the victim’s head was placed on an anvil and slowly crushed with a steam hammer. Those due to undergo the same punishment the next day were forced to watch.
The eyes of church dignitaries were poked out, their tongues were cut off and they were buried alive. There were Chekists who used to cut open 111 the stomachs of their victims, following which they pulled out a length of the small intestine and nailed it to a telegraph pole and, with a whip, forced the unlucky victim to run circles around the pole until the whole intestine had been unravelled and the victim died. The bishop of Voronezh was boiled alive in a big pot, after which the monks, with revolvers aimed at their heads, were forced to drink this soup.
Other Chekists crushed the heads of their victims with special headscrews, or drilled them through with dental tools. The upper part of the skull was sawn off and the nearest in line was forced to eat the brain, following which the procedure would be repeated to the end of the line. The Chekists often arrested whole families and tortured the children before the eyes of their parents, and the wives before their husbands. Mikhail Voslensky, a former Soviet functionary, described some of the cruel methods used by the Chekists in his book “Nomenklatura” / “Nomenclature” (Stockholm, 1982, p. 321):Related image
“In Kharkov, people were scalped. In Voronezh, the torture victims were placed in barrels into which nails were hammered so that they stuck out on the inside, upon which the barrels were set rolling. A pentacle (usually a five-pointed star formerly used in magic) was burned into the foreheads of the victims. In Tsaritsyn and Kamyshin, the hands of victims were amputated with a saw. In Poltava and Kremenchug, the victims were impaled. In Odessa, they were roasted alive in ovens or ripped to pieces. In Kiev, the victims were placed in coffins with a decomposing body and buried alive, only to be dug up again after half an hour.” Lenin was dissatisfied with these reports and demanded: “Put more force into the terror!”
All of this happened in the provinces. The reader can try to imagine how people were executed in Moscow. The Russian-Jewish newspaper Yevreyskaya Tribuna stated on the 24th of August 1922 that Lenin had asked the rabbis if they were satisfied with the particularly cruel executions. The Ideological Background of the Terror Compare the crimes mentioned in the previous chapter with the Old Testament account of King David’s massacre of the entire civilian population of an enemy (“thus did he unto all the cities of the children of 112 Ammon”). He “cut them with saws and with harrows of iron” and “made them pass through the brickkiln”. After the Second World War, this text was changed in most European Bibles. Now, many Bibles state that the people were put to work with the tools mentioned and were occupied with brick-making – something the inhabitants had been doing continually for several thousand years already. (This is found in II Samuel, 12:31, and in I Chronicles 20:3.)
The Jewish extremists’ serious crimes in Russia were committed in the true spirit of the Old Testament (King James’ Bible): * The god of the Israelites demands the mass-murder of Gentiles (i.e. goyim = non-Jews), including women and children. (Deuteronomy, 20:16.) * Yahweh wishes to spread terror among the Gentiles (Deuteronomy, 2:25). * Yahweh demands the destruction of other religions (Deuteronomy, 7:5). * The Jews may divide the prey of a great spoil (Isaiah, 33:23). * The Jews may make Gentiles their slaves (Isaiah, 14:2). * Those refusing to serve the Jews shall perish and be utterly wasted (Isaiah, 60:12). * Gentiles shall be forced to eat

their own flesh (Isaiah, 49:26).


Returning to the Bolshevik terror: in order to control the people’s hatred of their Jewish torturers and executioners, people suspected of having an anti-Semitic attitude were also executed. Those in possession of the book “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” were executed on the spot. At the end of March 1919, Lenin was forced to explain: “The Jews are not the enemies of the working classes… they are our friends in the struggle for Socialism.” But the people hated precisely this Socialism and those who practised terror in its name. Vladimir Ulyanov’s passion was to kill as many people as possible without thinking of the consequences. Of course, he never wondered whether it was really possible to build a state on violence and evil.
Lenin showed the same kind of thoughtlessness by the Yenisei, where he had loaded his boat with so many dead rabbits with crushed heads that it sank under the weight. In August 1991 the state-ship Lenin had launched, sank. What else was to be expected? In the beginning of the 1920s there were already 70 000 prisoners in 300 concentration camps, according to “The Russian Revolution” by 113 Richard Pipes at Harvard University, though in reality there were probably many more. It was in this manner that Lenin built his GULAG archipelago.

About 10 million soldiers died in battle on both sides in World War One, one of the costliest wars in history.  The needless slaughter in trench warfare is usually portrayed by the Masonic-controlled media and education system as an unintended consequence. 

In fact, these wars are orchestrated by the Illuminati Jewish bankers and their Masonic minions to kill Christians in order to degrade Western civilization in advance of the Satanic NWO now clearly manifesting itself. (See, World War One- First Christian HolocaustRitual human sacrifice to their god Moloch may also be a factor.

All wars are designed to enrich and empower the bankers while destroying and demoralizing humanity. Warmongering “patriotism” is a ruse. The sooner gullible non-Satanists stop falling on a sword, the better.
I’m going to focus on the Battle of the Somme, one of the biggest battles of the first world war. My information is based on John Laffin’s British Butchers and Bunglers of World War One, (1988, p. 63ff.)

Both General Douglas Haig, Commander in Chief, Western Front,  and his principal co-planner Sir Henry Rawlinson were Freemasons. The Somme offensive (“The Big Push”) was intended to end the stalemate and win the war. The Allies had 700,000 men, a 7-1 numerical superiority. Haig and Rawlinson anticipated losing 500,000 men. 

The plan was simple: to bomb the Germans for five days and nights then walk to the enemy trench and kill the remaining soldiers or capture those who surrendered. 

However, after 5 days of bombing, the German trenches and their defences were barely scratched. The English neglected to reconnoitre or observe this from the air.  The Germans just had to shoot their machine guns, reload and shoot again. The same type of attack continued from the 1st of July until November 1916. Over a million men died; 58,000 on the first day.

On July 1 1916, 11 British divisions attacked on a 13-mile front. By 7.30 am the six German divisions finished breakfast, wiped their faces with their napkins, and carried their machine guns from comfortable deep cellars. They began spraying the attackers who were advancing in neat rows, “to maintain order.”

A German machine gunner wrote, “We were surprised to see them walking, we had never seen that before. The officers went in front. One was carrying a walking stick…When we started to fire, we just had to load and reload. They went down in their hundreds. We didn’t have to aim, we just fired into them. “

A German officer reported his impression of the attack. “Whole sections appeared to fall. All along the line, Englishmen could be seen throwing their arms into the air and collapsing, never to move again. Badly wounded rolled about in agony, while badly wounded crawled into shell-holes for shelter. “

John Laffin: “Of the 110,000 men who attacked, 60,000 were killed or wounded on this one day. About 20,000 lay dead between the lines. Haig and Rawlinson were directly responsible for the assumption bombardment would cut barbed wire and render the Germans vulnerable.  The Germans lost an estimated 8000 men on July 1. 2000 were taken prisoner.” (64) 

A hospital station dealt with 10,000 casualties in the first 48 hours. A surgeon wrote:  ”Streams of ambulances a mile long waited to be unloaded. The whole area of the camp, a field of six acres, was completely covered with stretchers placed side-by-side, each with its suffering or dying man. We surgeons were hard at it in the operating theatre, a good hut holding four tables. Occasionally we made a brief look around to select from the thousands of patients those few we had time to save. It was terrible. (73) 

Haig’s chronicler Colonel Boraston wrote that the attack, “bore out the conclusions of the British High Command, and amply justified the tactical methods employed.” (No doubt these men were all Freemasons.)

Laffin writes: “This is an outrageous statement. It is more accurate to call 1 July 1916, as H. L’Etang does, ‘probably the greatest disaster to British arms since Hastings….Certainly never before nor since has such wanton pointless carnage been seen…’ (70)

Laffin bemoans the  complete “absence of cleverness” in the military strategy. He emphasizes that, “high casualties were a basic rule of the game and simply had to be accepted.” (76)

Who knows how the world would be different if the cream of that generation of Christians had not been trampled into the mud of France in 1915-18?

There is simply no explanation for sending wave after wave of men to their slaughter other than that this was the deliberate goal. Any sane general would have stopped the attack as soon as it became apparent that the strategy was a failure. 

Western society is controlled by a satanic cult whose goal is to degrade and exploit humanity.
It’s time we stopped we being complicit in our own destruction.

Yes, Virginia, there really were hijackers on the 9/11 planes—but not the ones we were told

This post is not intended to be taken dogmatically; I do not insist that its conclusions are correct; they are just presented for consideration.
In this post, though they have already been much discussed and debated within alternative media, I’ll address three major components of the 9/11 controversy: (1) what brought down the Twin Towers; (2) what initially struck the Towers; and (3) what happened to the original planes and passengers.
However, there is a valid complaint often voiced in the Truth Movement, which runs like this: “I really don’t care how 9/11 was done and I’m tired of all the infighting about this. What really matters is, we know the government’s story is bogus, so we need to focus on identifying the criminals and bringing them to justice.”



I consider this a very legitimate grievance. But I don’t think we can separate “who” from “how.” When a prosecutor presents his case in a courtroom, he doesn’t name a crime’s perpetrator without describing how the crime was carried out. Nor does he present the jury with the crime’s details and methodology without identifying the suspect(s).
So let’s tackle both how and who, and we’ll start with “who,” because doing so clarifies a lot of “how.”

The Who

What’s wrong with the following math equations?
3 + 3 = 68
98 – 7 = 2
58 X 7 = 35
What’s wrong, of course, are the 8s. Take away the 8s and each equation reads correctly.
I believe that, when it comes to resolving the mystery of how 9/11 was executed, the Truth Movement suffers from a major “8” (in addition to any individual doses of cognitive dissonance that have been deliberately sprinkled in). I believe that “8” is:
9/11 was an inside job.
I believe a far more correct rendering is:
9/11 was an outside job, done by Israeli operatives, but with consent and cooperation at the highest levels of the U.S. government.
To understand this, it may be helpful to compare Israel’s vicious 1967 attack on the USS Liberty. It is well understood that President Lyndon B. Johnson and Defense Secretary Robert McNamara fully cooperated, by twice recalling U.S. fighters that the Sixth Fleet had sent to rescue the Liberty, and later by ordering a cover-up. However, at the physical operational level, the attack was carried out by Israelis, not by Americans in an “inside job.”
OK, but what’s the evidence that Israel was behind 9/11? By far the best summary I’ve seen is the WikiSpooks post 9-11/Israel Did It. (Incidentally, as many of my regular readers know, I’m half-Jewish on my father’s side, so knee-jerk charges against me of “anti-Semitism” can be stuffed in the appropriate place.)
A sampling of highlights:
• The five notorious “dancing Israelis” who filmed the Twin Towers’ destruction, after which they celebrated, high-fiving each other and even photographing themselves flicking a lighter against the backdrop of the smoking ruins. They were arrested after driving off in a van whose license number was reported by a neighbor. Later it was revealed that at least two of them were agents of Mossad, Israel’s intelligence service.
• Michael Chertoff was put in charge of the Justice Department’s investigation of 9/11, despite his mother having been a Mossad agent, and Chertoff himself reportedly holding dual citizenship in Israel. Chertoff released hundreds of arrested Israelis back to Israel, including the notorious “dancing Israelis.”
• Quoting Wikispooks: “The company that ran airport security at all three airports where the alleged hijackings originated was Huntsleigh USA, a wholly owned subsidiary of ICTS International and owned by Ezra Harel and Menachem Atzmon —both Israeli Jews.”
• ”Lucky Larry” Silverstein, who became the new owner of the World Trade Center less than two months before the attacks, and earned an insurance payout of nearly $5 billion on his $124 million investment (after missing the disaster due to a fortuitous doctor’s appointment on the morning of 9/11) was such good friends with Benjamin Netanyahu that the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported in November 2001: “Every Sunday afternoon, New York time, Netanyahu would call Silverstein. It made no difference what the subject was or where Netanyahu was, he would always call.”1
• Supported by funds from Israel’s government, Zim Israel Navigational was the world’s ninth largest shipping firm. It had its American headquarters in the World Trade Center—until about two weeks before 9/11. Zim then moved its offices and employees to a new building, claiming rent was cheaper there.
• The 9/11 Commission’s executive director was Philip Zelikow, a dual U.S.-Israeli citizen. Why should anyone with sworn loyalty to a foreign nation be entrusted with such a position?
• On 9/11, the chairman of George W. Bush’s Defense Policy Board was Richard Perle, whom the National Security Agency had caught spying on the U.S. for Israel in 1970.
• On 9/11, employees of the Israeli instant messaging company Odigo received messages two hours before the attack, warning them not to be in the World Trade Center.
• Ptech, a software firm linked to Israeli intelligence, had provided vital software being used by the FAA, FBI, and U.S. armed forces on 9/11.
• On 9/11, seated in row 9 of Flight 11 (directly behind “Mohammed Atta”) was Danny Lewin, a former captain in the IDF (Israeli Defense Force), and who served in the Sayeret Matkal, which specializes in counter-terrorism, hostage rescue, and assassination. Lewin could bench-press 315 pounds and “was trained to kill terrorists with a pen or a credit card, or just his bare hands.”2 In 2000, he had himself photographed in front of panels resembling the Twin Towers, wearing a Swatch Watch whose model name was “Hijacker.” The hour, minute and second hands were all on the “11” and the date was set to the 11th, even though the picture was taken on the 10th.




The odds against all four time indicators being on “11” are more than 20,000 to 1. Times the odds of the watch model being named “Hijacker”: unfathomable.
That’s just a small sampling of the evidence that Israel did 9/11. When police detectives try to solve a murder, among the first questions asked is: Who benefitted from the crime? In 9/11’s case, Middle Eastern Muslims did not benefit—the U.S. has been making war on them for 16 years. America did not benefit—we’re suffering the casualties and trillions in costs from the wars, as well as degradation of our liberties in the name of security. The only beneficiary was Israel—her enemies have been neutralized one by one, courtesy America, in fulfillment of the Greater Israel plan, with Iran reputedly next on the hit list.
That’s the main who; let’s talk about the how.

(1) How were the Twin Towers destroyed?

Within alternative media are three major schools of thought about this. One is nano-thermite, largely advocated by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. Another is Directed Energy Weapons (DEWs), whose foremost advocate is Dr. Judy Wood. The third is nuclear devices, which I and a few others support. Let me be clear: I have friends in all three camps, and differing opinions on this matter don’t impede our friendships.
I’ve laid out why I believe the Twin Towers’ collapse was a nuclear event in an extensive blog post. To minimize redundancy, I’ll shrink this to a “top ten” list:

TOP TEN REASONS THE WTC COLLAPSE WAS A NUCLEAR EVENT

1. Thyroid cancer occurs at above-average frequency in 9/11 first responders more than any other type of cancer (see full post for citations). This is a signature of nuclear bombs; they emit iodine-131, which collects in the thyroid, often causing cancer. (This is why some people keep potassium iodide tablets on hand—to protect their thyroid glands in case of a nuclear attack.)
2. World Trade Center dust samples examined by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) found Uranium, Strontium, Barium, Thorium, and other products of nuclear fission, in high concentrations that only an atomic blast could explain. Although the Survey avoided calling attention to the significance, William Tahil vetted it in his pioneering 2006 book Ground Zero: The Nuclear Demolition of the World Trade Centre. (The phrase “ground zero,” incidentally, had only been applied to nuclear detonation sites prior to 9/11.)
3. There was molten steel underneath the rubble of the World Trade Center, whose fires kept burning for over three months. Extraordinary heat is yet another signature of a nuclear bomb.
(Note: I’m aware that molten steel was seen at a corner of the South Tower before its collapse; I don’t doubt that pre-planted explosives were in the Towers, probably including the incendiary thermite, but I don’t believe these explosives were what destroyed the WTC. To clarify, each Tower had six basement levels, and the thesis of my full post—which I had excellent assistance with—is that each Tower was destroyed by a suitcase nuke positioned at the lowest point in either building: the services pits beneath elevator 50. This was the only elevator that ran the full length of either Tower, and the only elevator whose service pits were carved into the bedrock beneath the World Trade Center. This location would make the ideal “launching pad” for a nuke, as the bedrock would contain the sideways and downward force of a nuclear explosion, which would follow the path of least resistance up through the shaft. See the full post for diagrams.)
4. The Towers did not simply “fall,” they exploded, throwing chunks of steel weighing multiple tons hundreds of feet. Check, for example, this piece that embedded itself in the American Express Building across the street:

No exotic weapons are needed to explain this. A nuclear bomb is the most powerful explosive known.
5. The Towers’ inner contents were vaporized: no furniture, filing cabinets (except one), computers, or toilets survived. All turned into dust. Even the buildings’ concrete became dust, instead of falling as chunks of debris. The vaporization, of course, included the people inside (whole bodies that were found belonged to people who jumped before the Towers disintegrated). Not only is a nuclear bomb the most powerful explosive known, its blast—unlike conventional explosives—endures for several seconds, enabling it to inflict considerably more damage.
6. At the times of the two Tower “collapses,” seismographs at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in Palisades, New York, recorded enormous off-the-chart spikes consistent with huge explosions.


This shot of the South Tower exploding caught a huge singular upward burst of energy.
7. A nuclear blast explains the damage to the rest of the World Trade Center. Buildings 5 and 7 suffered enormous fires, and building 6 was cratered out. These phenomena could not have begun before the Towers’ destruction; otherwise, videos of the burning Towers would have shown additional smoke plumes, and cameras would have panned to the blazes.
Nuclear blasts originating at the lowest levels of the Twin Towers may provide the answer. Underground the World Trade Center was interconnected by pipes, not only for sewage, but a 3-foot-wide storm water drainage system.
Any building’s place at greatest risk for flooding is its lowest point. For the Twin Towers, this would have been Elevator 50’s service pits. From here flood water would be pumped through pipes to the 36-inch storm drain. Thus atomic blasts here would not only follow the path of least resistance through Elevator 50’s shaft, but through the 36-inch storm water drain, traveling through the underground pipes and shooting up through buildings 5, 6 and 7, igniting them. Falling debris could not have caused the raging internal fires seen in the smaller buildings; edifices outside the World Trade Center (American Express Building, Winter Garden Atrium) were heavily impacted by debris, but they did not catch fire. THEY WERE NOT CONNECTED TO THE WTC’S UNDERGROUND DRAINAGE SYSTEM.
Please see my full post for elaboration and documentation of the above point.
8. On 9/11, New Yorkers fled two terrifying dust clouds that engulfed the area surrounding the WTC. Anyone who watches videos of nuclear bombs detonating will see that they create sprawling ground-level clouds. Although building demolitions also routinely make dust clouds, the 9/11 ones seemed to have had a life of their own.

EXODUS II:  Escaping the New World Order (Part TWO)
By:  Eric Gajewski

There are still so many people who are ignorant of the New World Order.  What do I mean when I say a New World Order and what is the Old World Order?  The Old World Order was Christendom.  We will only have true peace in this world once hearts come back to Christ and the Catholic Faith through the Blessed Virgin Mary.  There is NO other path.  A good portion of the world was once unified in Faith in the Catholic religion but over centuries due to heresy Christendom has been broken down.  The Gospel of our Lord has been replaced by Vatican II and a “feel good humanitarianism” which is only paving the way for the False Prophet and Antichrist.  It is void of the true Gospel and Faith.  How do we escape all that which surrounds us today? Whether it be false doctrine or the immoral filth being shoved down our throats.  Let me now continue on in this analysis between the crisis of Moses time and our own.  


Connection between Exodus 4:12 and Luke 21:15. God’s own then were being persecuted as so are we now.  We now have a hierarchy so theologically clueless that they are willing to give real Catholics new labels such as fundamentalist or Pharisaical.  Fortunately, Gods own then had good leadership and we have a hope of the great Pope to come to lead us through this tribulation as Moses once did.  Moses led His people through the Red sea and so will Peter II.  We shall arrive in the Promised Land safely passing through the two pillars of victory The Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Eucharist.  Nevertheless, see how in Exodus 4:12 God is telling Moses not to worry about what to say to the Pharao and persecutor’s.  God is telling His own the same now.  We have not seen anything yet in terms of the great persecution this is still to come leading up to the arrival of Antichrist and during the Great Tribulation.  The Holy Ghost will talk we must simply remain in patience to win our souls.  Faithfulness.

   All pledging their allegiance to the NWO and Antichrist Maitreya


 
The Abomination of Desolation: Maitreya's Image 

Notable traditional catholic apologist Kathleen Keating says Maitreya is Antichrist as well
Exodus 5:1 Let my people go that they might sacrifice.  We now have an attack coming from the highest authorities of the Church on the true Mass.  The contrived New Mass is not Catholic and pertains to the Conciliar Church.  A Conciliar Church which so adamantly stands behind “its cult of man” (FreeMasonry) principles and would even claim those not willing to submit to be heretical.  “The Church will be punished because the majority of Her members, high and low, will become so perverted. The Church will sink deeper and deeper until She will at last seem to be extinguished, and the succession of Peter and the other Apostles to have expired. But, after this, She will be victoriously exalted in the sight of all doubters.”   St. Nicholas von Flue (15th century)  We have a supposed Pope who doesn’t even believe in a Catholic God now attacking “traditionalist’s” left and right!  When shall we escape?  Perhaps when Catholics turn from the world and begin to see things through the eyes of God.  Those mixing themselves up with the world will find themselves in hell one day and sadly we so many on this path.  Modern “Catholics” seek a happiness which is not from God.  They do not want to embrace their cross like the Saints and thus they follow along in false obedience blindly to Vatican II and its feel good humanitarian gospel.  The Church is going underground but we shall still Sacrifice.  And the churches too will wail with a mighty lamentation, because neither oblation nor incense is attended to, nor a service acceptable to God; but the sanctuaries of the churches will become like a garden-watcher's hut, and the Holy Body and Blood of Christ will not be shown in those days. The public service of God shall be extinguished.”  St. Hippolytus (3rd century)

Mark of the Beast: New Age Luciferian Initiation 

Exodus 5:2  Who is the Lord that I should listen.  The Jews/Synagogue of Satan want nothing to do with the true God.  They put Him to death and now seek their New World Order who will be headed religiously by the False Prophet, who, thus, takes orders form the Antichrist.  Why should we listen to the Lord they are saying.  For this is not their “god”.  They are building a new world order largely on economics which the post Vatican II popes have supported.  Our supposed very own are in on the game objectively speaking.  This is why so many Catholics refuse to believe we are in an apostasy.  They say God would never allow something like this!  Oh yes He would and its found in Scripture, Tradition and approved Marian revelations!  They too don’t want to listen nor see the truth largely and thus we find ourselves in the endgame.  When Planet X passes and the sign of the son of man is seen up above the Jews and the whole world will see that I AM is coming and that He is in control.  Largely, we are in this mess because Christians take too much pleasure in this world and could truly care less about the work necessary to save their own soul.  It is a poor exchange the temporal now for the everlasting later.



AGE OF DECEIT* (FULL) Fallen Angels and the New World Order 


Exodus 6:4 God’s Covenant.  It continues on with His Catholic Church.  We know He is with us and His Church until the very end.  Matthew 16: 18 confirms this.  CERN, the Antichrist, and all the enemies of the Church cannot defeat that which is Divine.  Fatima records this continuation of the Covenant with His people.  “In the end My Immaculate Heart will triumph”.  Through, the Blessed Virgin Mary the Church continues on in Faith.  What is interesting to note is that the Church Fathers teach the Jews will convert to Catholicism in the end.  Specially over the preaching/finding of the Ark.  Is this not our Lady?  We must pray for the faithless to become of the Faith through Our model of Faith the Blessed Virgin Mary.  It is through her intercession that they shall see clearly in the final analysis.   

Fr. Kramer: Fatima, Church History & Present Crisis  

Exodus 6:6 God delivers.  I touched upon this briefly last installment.  It is not going to be “traditionalists” who save the day for the Church.  No, this crisis is FAR worse than the Arian crisis.  They have their false doctrines in place and a decent number of prelates are truly working for the enemy objectively speaking.  The others just follow in ignorance or in false obedience.  It is going to be God with His mighty Arm which is going to shake this world and deliver us from the enemy.  Make no mistake we still have to do our part in union with the immaculate and Sacred Heart but ultimately Redemption will come once again through the Christ via the Immaculate Heart.  Her mantle covers and His Heart shews forth Fire.  Those who spend little time in prayer are going to have a rude awakening soon as the whole world literally collapses around us.  I prove this daily in my work with all the signs of the end.  To make it through the days ahead you are going to need Faith more greater than the size of a mustard seed.  You are going to need a full tree, therefore, look for those opportunities in your life that God is giving you the opportunity to grow.

          Spiritual Wickedness in High Places: Malachi Martin on The End of Religion (As We Know It)   
Spiritual Wickedness in High Places: Malachi Martin on The End of Religion (As We Know It)
SOURCE
(Note: The following was one of the last interviews by Malachi Martin before his death in 1999.)

      Ever since Nimrod and the Tower of Babel, the Power Elite have never given up on their feverish dream of a One World Government.

      Former Jesuit Malachi Martin's novel, Windswept House (Doubleday/ Main Street Books), offers a lurid behind the scenes look at a cabal of Vatican insiders who want to use the Roman Catholic Church as a foundation for a politico-religious New World Order.

      The plot of the novel involves a group of Church officials who scheme with a group of like-minded corporate executives to manipulate the Church into a ready-made infrastructure for a One World Religion -- a universal umbrella for everybody from Episcopalians to voodoo practitioners.

      The new ecumenicalism is clothed in Globalist garb. The agenda includes promoting issues like population control, environmentalism and secular humanism, which the plotters hope will eventually lead to the complete secularization of religion. 


      The most outrageous and controversial premise of the novel -- described in great detail in the prologue -- is that a ceremony was performed in the Vatican in 1963 -- an occult ritual which enthroned the fallen archangel Lucifer as the head of the Roman Catholic Church.

      Does Dr. Martin believe that this enthronement actually took place in his novel, which could liberally be described as a roman a clef?

      "Yes, it did," he says emphatically. "Beyond a shadow of a doubt in my mind. But now the place, time, hour etc., are all obfuscated to protect the guilty and save the innocent."

      Was it common knowledge in the Vatican at the time? "Not common knowledge," explains Martin. "But I found out about it by being a member of the Vatican circles that learned these things. It's like everything else. I'm sure there are people floating around Washington, and they know an awful lot about what's going on. Someone says, 'how do you know that'? Well, it's just... we know it."

      The story ofWindswept House continues in present day Europe as an international group of conspirators spanning Church and State plots a one world government on behalf of Lucifer. So are readers to infer that no matter what happens, the Pope and the Church hierarchy are bound to serve the fallen angel?

      "No," explains Dr. Martin. "What it means is that for the moment, Lucifer the biggest archangel, the leader of the revolt against God, has a big in with certain Vatican officials. Enthronement doesn't mean that he rules. It means that they did their best to put him there. The ideal would be to have their man as Pope. In that case then Satan would be enthroned."

      The book goes on to describe how two brothers, one a priest and the other an investment banker, grapple with these awesome consequences as pawns in the game. Meanwhile the cabal of Globalist-oriented Vatican officials and European-based internationalists try to corner the Pope into voluntary resignation so that they can get their man in the Chair of Peter.

      This theme coincidentally is also the basis, albeit in non-fiction form, of Martin's book The Keys of This Blood: Pope John Paul II Versus Russia and the West for Control of the New World Order.

      The upshot? A One World Government is a fait accompli, he infers. What Dr. Martin calls the "millennium endgame" is a competition for a new global hegemony by the key Globalist players. What's interesting is that the novel appears to be a seamless transition from his previous non-fiction work. The reader then is put in the position of concluding that the New World Order is a done deal, that a One World Government is here and now and, as the expression goes, it's all over but the crying.

      But you wouldn't expect Globalist agit-prop from a former Jesuit. Or would you?



The Enthronement of Lucifer in the Vatican

 

And Who Is Malachi Martin?

      Author of 15 books on religious and geo-political topics, Malachi Martin is highly regarded and respected as a world renowned scholar.

      Trained in theology at Louvain, he received his doctorates in Semitic Languages, Archaeology and Oriental History. He subsequently studied at Oxford and Hebrew University in Jerusalem. From 1958 to 1964, he served in Rome, where he was a close associate of the Jesuit cardinal Augustin Bea and Pope John XXIII, as well as a professor at the Vatican's Pontifical Biblical Institute.

      Malachi Martin is the author of many best-selling books including Vatican, Hostage to the Devil, The Jesuits, The Final Conclave, and The Keys of This Blood. Also he was a Roman Catholic priest of the Society of Jesus until 1964 when he left the Jesuits. Why?

      "It was a grave decision," he says. "I could see the way the Church was going, the way churchmen were going in their decisions and all the anchors I had for morality and zeal were being undone. Then when the Vatican Council started in 1962, I could see the way the flow of opinion was going in the Vatican by a group of cardinals from Belgium, Germany and France. They were maneuvering the Church into totally new ecclesiology. I couldn't accept this."

      As an advisor to three Popes, Dr. Martin has had his fair share of romanita, that uniquely Roman methodology of connivance and power politicking. "I started off as an advisor on Judaism," he continues. "I was trained in Semitic languages and I spent a year and a half studying the Talmud... Then my superiors in Rome also found that I understood Judaism very well. They wanted someone to explain it, since they were studying the whole question of Jewish-Christian relations. So I was drafted into helping with that."

      And the outcome? "They produced a document in which they sort of absolved the Jewish people of the death of Christ."

      Based on his research? "No, not on my research," argues Martin. "I was only a cog in the wheel. I didn't agree with the final document either. It went too far. And then there were conclusions about the need for Catholics to study Judaism and get to know them better."

So this was the ecumenicalization of the Church that was going on?

      "That's it in one word," concurs Martin. "And I couldn't agree with the total effect of all that because I thought they went too far."

      Dr. Martin was also involved with Vatican intelligence. What did he do? "Just assessing things in Israel, whatever anti-Christianity there was amongst the Israelis. There was and still is. And what was the position of the Arabs. I used to live in Jordan and Lebanon and Egypt. I knew those places very well and could assess the position of the Church and the various Christian communities."

      The many-talented Dr. Martin is also known as a practicing exorcist and has even written a book about the subject called Hostage to the Devil.

      He says he came up against evil as a force in the world in an uncontrovertible undeniable way in his first exorcism.

      "I was in Cairo and it was evil," Dr. Martin recalls.

      "You know you only have to enter its presence, or for it to enter your presence to know that you are in the presence of something which is summarily evil."

      "It's invisible. You can't see it. But you know it wants you dead. Dead. Dead. And in a horrible way," he repeats in a hypnotic voice. "It's touching your very bones by its presence."

      So how does he explain the phenomenon of demonic possession? "Free will", says Dr. Martin. "For the first time in the work we have been doing for thirty-one years in this corner of the globe, during the last ten years or so, we have found young men and women thirty-somethings or twenty-somethings coming forward and saying, 'Listen I made a pact with the devil. I wanted this woman. I wanted this man. I wanted this job. I wanted this money. I wanted this, this, this, and I made a pact and he gave it to me and now I can't get free of him. He dominates my will. Please liberate me. And then people get to it by means of things like a ouija board or by spiritual seances or channeling."

      Malachi Martin is also known as a serious scholar of apocryphal writings, having authored a book called The Scribal Character of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

      (As an impressive mark of his erudition, Malachi Martin even knew about the alternative Abraham and Isaac story in one of the so-called Pseudepigrapha, the Book of Jubilees. In this unsanctioned version of Genesis, Abraham is commanded to kill his son, but not by God. Instead it is Mastema, a fallen angel known as "the accusing angel" as well as the Tempter and Executioner, who tells the Hebrew patriarch to do the dirty deed. To his credit, of course, Abraham doesn't slaughter his firstborn. When asked why the Genesis version omits details of the fallen angel Mastema as the instigator of Abraham's test, however, even Malachi Martin admits ignorance.)

The Globalist Imperative

      Like the prissy intellectuals of the 1930s enamored by National Socialism (as well as Fabian Socialism), the current fin de siecle version of internationalists are likewise paving their own road to a Globalist hell with good intentions.

      Using the Hegelian model of history, first there was Capitalism (thesis), then Communism (antithesis), and now there's the New World Order (synthesis), risen from the ashes of the Cold War and the formerly 'competing' ideologies.

      International socialism or corporate fascism (aka Globalism) is, in fact, the trendy philosophy for the end of the millennium. In his book Megatrends 2000, Olympian futurist John Naisbitt calls it "free market socialism," a hybrid economic system that combines welfare state policies with multinational corporate business on a global level.

      Globalism, however, as a secular religion, has a dogma all its own. Its primary belief system is based on the notion that the usefulness of the nation-state is over. In other words, national sovereignty is a thing of the past and a One World Government is inevitable. But... this effort, at least for now, must be couched in cryptic language for the unwashed masses. Otherwise they'd get too upset.

      Globalist spokesman Zbigniew Brzezinski, former Columbia University professor, President Carter's former National Security advisor, and founder of the Trilateral Commission spoke at the Gorbachev Foundation's State of the World Forum in 1995, "We cannot leap into world government in one quick step," he said. "(It) requires a process of gradually expanding the range of democratic cooperation." In plain language, that means people must be further indoctrinated.

      Eurocrat Jean-Marie Guehenno hints at this global hegemony or one world totalitarianism calling it an "empire without an emperor." Guehenno wrote The End of the Nation-State (1995) which was called La fin de la democratie (The End of Democracy) in the original French version. Since nation states are obsolete, he claims, "'wise men' capable of thinking through the finite world that has become our common lot" must be entrusted to guide us into what he calls an 'Imperial Age'." Presumably Guehenno counts himself as one of the ranks of "The Wise Men."

      Most striking though is a chapter in Guehenno's book called "Religions without God", which evokes the image of the humanist shaking his fist at an empty sky. The ultimate reduction of this conundrum for the internationalists is to hint at a "global politburo" to run the world as posited by Paul Mazur in Unfinished Business (1979).

      According to Dr. Martin's nomenclature, Guehenno is one of the Transnationalists -- bureaucrats who believe that Globalism is based on "the development of new and ever wider interrelationships between the governments of the world".

      On the other hand, the Internationalists are "individuals who operate from a power base of finance, industry and technology". Together these groups are the Globalists, the social engineers conniving for the convergence of East and West in the so-called New World Order.


Luciferian Geo-Politics

      For a Churchman, Malachi Martin shows a remarkable familiarity and understanding of Luciferianism, a belief system which hold human wisdom, secular humanism if you will, as its paragon and the fallen archangel Lucifer as the Prince who will rule the world.

      Readers ofWindswept Houseare given the impression that the old traditional Catholic Church is good because the protagonists, Christian Gladstone and his mother are defending it, while we know that the Church has been dedicated to Lucifer. Faced with these two alternatives, the conclusion is that the Roman Catholic Church run by Lucifer is good -- a classic (and incredibly sophisticated) double bind, which is constantly reinforced in the reader's mind throughout the 646 pages of the novel.

      "Well, the Church itself has not been given to Lucifer," argues Dr. Martin. "He was enthroned in the Vatican by Vatican officials. That doesn't mean he possesses the Church yet. The Church anyway is an ambiguous term because it either means the actual physical bloc of churches, convents, libraries, academies, parish houses and cathedrals, the physical plant. Or it means the group of faithful in the state of grace whether they are alive in Purgatory or in Heaven. That is the body of Christ."

      "There has always been, since the fourth century, this organization set up by the Emperor Constantine. But that is not essential for the Church. The Church can exist without it. So that mystical body of Christ has not fallen into Lucifer's hands. The organization to some degree has. That's the difficulty."

      What about the book putting his readers in a double bind? You're presented with two choices. Either A. The Luciferian-controlled Roman Catholic Church. Or B. The Luciferian-controlled New World Order. So where does Malachi Martin find himself?

      "The New World Order is definitely won by Luciferian believers," says Dr. Martin. "There's no doubt about that."

      And then he starts to rationalize their modus operandi.

      "But these are men who came to be and are in their actions at least, humanitarian and philanthropic. They want to wipe out hunger and disease. They want to limit the population of the world. They believe the world is headed for mass starvation. They also want to enter into education. They would like to have an alliance with the Roman Catholic Church and with another pope. This one -- they know would stand in their way in regards to population control because he is deadstart against abortion, contraceptives, genetic engineering."

      And what about "The Process" he refers to in his book?

      Dr. Martin replies that it's the "Luciferian Process" of secularizing every religious mind so that the common mind today would be one which regarded the earth as a planned paradise to be built up. There is no God above the skies, no heaven, and there is no hell beneath the earth. It's complete secularization."

      (John Lennon's classic rock anthem "Imagine" comes to mind. "Imagine there's no country," he sang. "It isn't hard to do. Nothing to kill or die for. And no religion too.")

      But do the Luciferians have a timetable?

      "We are now according to the official doctrine of the Luciferians in what they call "the Availing Time". They have a tradition that in these years they can avail of the time to install the Prince, who is Lucifer, as the greatest power on earth in charge of human civilization and adored by men."

      And to what end?

      "To exalt the power of Lucifer. That is the end in itself. It's the Luciferian purpose. If they don't do it in these years, then it is put off sine die, without resolution. They are very keen on getting it done."

      And what are the next steps in this "Process"?

      "The purpose is to secularize education completely," continues Dr. Martin. "And to eliminate from considerations of life and death -- medicine, sociality, finance, birth, development etc., to free that of any religious presumption whatever. To free it from the superstition of religion so that man is dealt with scientifically and humanly. And that is 'the Process'. 'The Process' is to make the human mind accept that... 'The Process' is whereby all education, primary secondary and higher, college university and all public activity is completely rid of all religious presumptions."

      "There is a layer of satanism, of satanist ritual which prepares people for perfect Luciferian adoption. They have covens and sacrifices and rites. The Luciferians have no rites, you know."

      So dabbling with satanism in these rituals leads to a different form of "commitment" which is Luciferianism?

      "It is a preparation for Luciferianism and there are reversals sometimes," claims Dr. Martin. "You will find a crowd of Luciferians having a satanic ritual as a reminder of things. But they have all passed through in a sense and that involves three things: the infliction of pain without flinching, the infliction of death without flinching, and the use of fire."


Windswept House — Message and Subtext

      In Windswept House, Christians and Luciferians clash over the remains of the Roman Catholic Church. It's a controversial and provocative story, a political thriller with metaphysical implications. It delves into the depths of treachery, intrigue and Machiavellian politics at the highest levels of the Church. As a fact-based novel with frequent lengthy asides on real historical geopolitical events like the fall of the Soviet Empire and the Helsinki Accords,Windswept House is a vehicle for one simple message -- the New World Order is here and now.

      While a group of cardinals scheme to force the Pope to resign his office so they'll be able to install a man who will do the Luciferians' bidding, a priest, Christian Gladstone is called to Rome. Cardinal Maestroianni, a power player and one of the leaders of the cabal, enlists the priest to poll bishops regarding closer ties with the European Economic Community. In fact, however, the Cardinal is assessing the timing for a conclave in which the Slavic Pope would be forced to resign because he has become a stumbling block in the Luciferians' plans.

      From the business side, Paul Gladstone, Christian's brother and an expert in international relations working at a Globalist law firm, is also unknowingly recruited to bring the Luciferian plan to fruition. When the brothers find out they are both being unwittingly used in the schemes of the Luciferians, they join forces. Christian then must reach the Pope to tell him that he is being manipulated to abdicate the Chair of Peter.

      Will the Pope resign? And will he exorcise the Church in time?

      The subtext? It doesn't really make a hell of a lot of a difference. 

Father Malachi Martin: End of Christian Civilization



The Future of the Church Militant

      In his novelWindswept House Malachi Martin expostulates his readers regarding the reasons why the "Slavic Pope" (Pope John Paul II) is so ineffectual. But what is the Pope's agenda as he sees it?

      "I think that from the very start John Paul II for whatever reasons, has sought after one thing and one thing only," says Dr. Martin. The formation of what now appears to be in his mind, a universal assemblage of Catholics at the core; grouped with them the Protestant denominations, sects and churches; grouped around them believing Jews, believing Muslims, believing Hindus, believing Buddhists. And that would be a universal religious assembly that could have a powerful dynamic kick in civilization and in solving the problems of men and women today. That is the only thing you can really say this man has sought heart and soul and body with all his travelling. When he went to churches all over the world, member churches of the Catholic Church in all the countries, he was bolstering the reputation of the papacy and he was speaking Catholic dogma, Catholic belief, Catholic morals. But in reality he was reaching out to everybody. He wanted to make friends with everybody."

      And what about the widespread homosexuality, pedophilia and satanic rituals in the Church, common knowledge he avers known to all Vatican insiders? Since as he wrote Christ is no longer honored in the tabernacle, what does he think will happen?

      "Once the tabernacle is emptied of Christ's real presence, then the Church ceases to be holy and therefore it's going to be entered by the opposite power, Lucifer," says Martin. "And this is taking place now. Not widespread, but it is taking place. There's no doubt about that."

      So will the Church fall on its own? "It's disintegrating slowly," says Martin. "As an organization, it's being marginalized sociopolitically and culturally. And religiously, it's weakening and decaying, obsolescing..."

      "If you look at any country today there are three identifiable components of that State. One, the government. Two, there is industry. Third, there are what we call NGOs, the non-governmental organizations. That's everything from Mothers Against Drunk Drivers to the Catholic Church. And they're just simply lumped together, voluntary associations with as much power as they can grasp but of no special importance. Now fifty or seventy years ago, when an ethical or moral question arose, people and governments looked to the churches. Now they don't any longer."

      And yet another sensitive question. Something doesn't add up. Malachi Martin's a priest. He's supposed to fight evil. Yet his bookWindswept Houseis clear evidence that he's thrown in the towel.

      "Well I don't see evidence of having thrown in the towel," protests Dr. Martin. "Because there's a lot I'm being made to pay for, in the sense that the writer obviously likes and reveres this Pope even though he disagrees with him. The writer also believes in the blessed sacrament. He believes in the Pope's infallibility. He believes in salvation. He believes in hell. He believes in the evil of the devil."

      So why doesn'tWindswept Houseend with Christ victorious in the book?

      Does Dr. Martin believe that the Luciferian forces have won already?

      "No. No. No," insists Dr. Martin. "This is an interim book. It ends in a big doubt -- everybody waiting." This must be what they call the European ending -- as opposed to the American ending where all the loose ends are tied up.

      Then the story shifts into "The Devil, Er, I Mean the Editor Made Me Do It". "The publisher said, 'listen the story isn't finished yet,'" says Dr. Martin. "I had a lovely glorious ending. I had a vision. I had a marvellous thing over the Alps. He cut it out."

      This is an actual editorial decision? "Yes," says Dr. Martin.

      But with all due respect, it almost sounds like Luciferian tampering. Not that anyone wants a saccharine ending. So are readers to conclude that the Luciferians won because of the passivity of the Pope in defending the Church?

      "Well, they haven't won yet," says Dr. Martin on a slightly upbeat note. "We're waiting for this man to do something. He's the Vicar of Christ. I know I'm defending him but..."

      "Readers who call me or write me say, what do we do now? I say, read my next book," he continues.

      With Martin's death on July 28, 1999, his suggestion seems to be a moot point.

      "So perhaps editorially," he concludes, "it was the right decision, but religiously it was the wrong decision. I don't know."

      It's been said that "by their fruits, ye shall know them." Malachi Martin's assent to the so-called "process" is the tangible "fruit" of Windswept House.

      Is the novel a prophecy? Or is it just a warning?

      In any case, the New (Luciferian) World Order that Martin describes puts a religious spin to the whole "process" of history.

It's also clear -- the book is a Luciferian masterpiece.

          Comment on India to China: ‘This is not 1962’! by rehmat1   
Usually the criminals and idiot call TRUTH 'conspiracy theory'. Tibet is already occupied by China just like Muslim Eastern Turkistan. the US and India have been creating troubles in Tibet via CIA agent Dalai Lama. https://geopolitics.co/2016/12/19/mainstream-media-confirm-dalai-lama-is-a-cia-asset/ Mongolia owes its political sovereignty to Russia, therefore, it's not friendly toward China. Pakistani dictator Gen. Zia-ul-Haq was crown by Washington to defeat Red Army occupying Afghanistan. After he completed his assignment in Afghanistan - he told military command that he wanted to do the same to Indian army occupying 60% of Jammu and Kashmir state what he did to Russia. That was against US-Russia interests in the region. So, CIA-Mossad killed Zia along with American Jewish ambassador in Islamabad. Zulifqar Ali Bhutto was an Indian creep. Indira Gandhi used to call him UNCLE. He was a alcoholic-womanizer bastard. He was hanged like an ordinary criminal for helping India create Bangladesh and murder of an important opposition political leader. Hanging only happened only when both the US and India refused to give Bhutto political asylum. Gen. Haq is known as Butcher of Palestinian in Jordan. During the King Hussein's massacre PLO fighters and supporter on the behest of Israel - Brig. Gen. Zia-ul-Haq was a military adviser to King Hussein of Jordan - the most beloved Arab leader by the Israeli Jews. King's burial was attended by Shimon Peres, Benjamin Netanyahu and several Zionist rabbis.

          How To Be a Non-Antisemitic Anti-Zionist   
I've long maintained that is perfectly possible, in concept, to be anti-Zionist without being antisemitic (under reasonable definitions of both "Zionism" and "antisemitic"). The simplest way of doing this is through a sort of principled anarchism which objects to anybody having a state. In that case, "anti-Zionism" is not really a specific identity so much as it is the application of a general principle objecting to the existence of states to a particular state that happens to be Jewish -- and the principle doesn't operate materially differently with respect to Arab, or Japanese, or Mexican states.

Concept doesn't always (or, in my estimation, even often) translate into practice of course. And it is not a form of "censorship" or "cheating" to insist that if one wants to radically oppose the manner in which most Jews believe in their collective liberation, it might actually require hard work and difficult, nuanced judgments demanding deep knowledge of and attentiveness to Jewish histories and experiences. Saying that there can be non-antisemitic anti-Zionism doesn't compel the conclusion that it should be easy to do it.

That said, if you want a sketch on what non-antisemitic anti-Zionism might look like in the wild, you could do worse than reading this post by Jewdas (a British-based Jewish anarchist organization) commenting on the aftermath of the Chicago Dyke March fiasco.

I put this post forward not because I "endorse" it. I'm not an anti-Zionist nor an anarchist, I don't find the existence of Israel to be an embarrassment (though I certainly find a decent chunk of its actions to be so), and I have my share of objections to the "New Diasporism" model they are promoting -- not the least of which is my skepticism that the model adequately accounts for patterns of antisemitism in practice.

But what I can say is that theirs is a principled position that can be argued against on the basis of principled reasons. It is not a ticket good for the Jewish ride only (that brand of anti-Zionism can jump in a lake). It takes Jewish experience and Jewish communal life seriously, and offers a serious accounting of alternatives to collective living through a state. I might not find their alternative compelling or persuasive, but that's a far tamer and more prosaic objection than I'd level at the standard-issue forms of anti-Zionism that, say, justify expelling Jewish marchers because they have a Star of David on their rainbow flag.
          Apple tree disease identification help   

 Two of our 4 year apple trees have developed worrying signs of disease.

Kidds orange - this tree had a branch which looked cankerous last year, and this was removed. The tree split this summer with the weight of apples and now an area of  the bark just above the split seems blistered and discoloured.

The other tree is Epicure, and has developed a series of vertical splits in the bark near the ground. 

 

Both trees look otherwise healthy and bore a lot of apples this year.

Any help appreciated

Ian

 We have 3 pear trees planted 2010 as 3 yr old trees. This year all three have black spots and lesions concentrated along the central rib of the leaves. Virtually all the leaves are affected. The worst affected tree also has black areas on the new growth shoots, which look like they are all dying. There are small cracked and peeling areas on the bark of all the trees, nothing oozing from them. We have searched the RHS book on Pests and Diseases but are at a loss to identify.

          Tudor Eating   
I am obsessed with Tudor history. I am on my 6th book. I have read one book about Henry VIII, two about his wives, 1 about Anne Boleyn, and 1 about his mistresses. I am currently reading Food & Feast in Tudor Englan by Alison Sim. It is fantastic. I highly recommend it if you have any interest in being as nerdy as me. I went through a Roman history phase and read everything I could get my hands on that was written about on in the first century BCE to 4 century CE. Funny how I moved into English history.

This past summer we vacationed in England and Scotland. It was fantastic. There we are in front of Westminster Abbey. After a week in London, we left for Cambridge. I could not justify paying to enter to just lay eyes on the badge that has Hank and Anne's initials. Funny enough, in Italy they charge you for museums and the churches are free. In England, they charge you for churches and the museums are free. I cannot decide how I feel about that. It seems wrong on so many levels. I saw the queen's jewels, saw where Anne Boleyn and Katherine Howard had their heads lopped off and visited a bunch of famous dead people (of which no photography was allowed. How lame is that?)

On to Liverpool...we visited the official Liverpool FC store. People, you have no idea. Beatles tour, which was awesome, curry dinner and off to York. York is lovely. We had a proper tea at Betty's. It was spectacular. I know that British food is not Henry VII style, but we loved our English breakfast of eggs, beans, sausage and toast. The kids had tea and Sev stuck his pinkie out with style. We were so close to Hadrian's Wall that I forced John to travel 30 minutes out of his way to see it. Please people! I cannot travel here and not lay eyes on Hadrian's wall. That would be shameful. Just as John was losing his patience, he pull down some road and bam! there it was. So gorgeous, no?

Off to Scotland. Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aryshire, just to name a few. That is another post. England and Scotland are lovely. I am eager to go back. English food is delicious. Don't say it is because I am half English. Times have changed. Yet, what I would give to go back in time to the 16th century. Henry VIII survived on a diet that consisted of 80% protein, 15% alcohol, 5% fruit. Just to witness that kitchen and to taste that bread. I have always said that I would do almost anything to be deposited back to Rome in the 1st century. It is close. My next book is a beast. Elizabeth I by Alison Plowden. I love to stroll through history. We need to get on that time machine technology. Stat.

          7 Ways to Treat Yourself When You Don’t Have Money to Blow   

In an ideal world I’d be able to get daily massages, have someone cook for me and buy any and every plant I want (maybe your thing is jewelry). But I’m not there yet. For now, I’ll just have to enjoy a little do-it-yourself pampering and go easy on the pocketbook. Life’s full of expenses; whether it’s monthly bills, student loans, buying that dream home or building a business, there are times when you just don’t have a lot (or any) extra cash to splurge, and that’s okay. However, that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice simple pleasures. Hang on to... [Read More]

          Vintage Scrap Lone Star   

It all started in 2013, when Quiltdiva Julie sent me a box of crazy pieced vintage blocks.



There were 24 in all, and they came from a quilt top she'd bought on Ebay.
The seller said it came from Ohio.



I had saved this photo on my computer screen for some years before that.  
I don't remember the source, but it became my inspiration.



I sewed the blocks together and cut out the diamond shapes for the star.  
There were just enough leftover for the border.  



Then I bought some embroidery floss.



I learned a few stitches, and embroidered all the seams.



Eventually, it was ready for a background.
I picked this spring green solid, because it was the only thing that seemed to work.
I wasn't excited about the color, but thought I'd get over it.
Well, I didn't.  I just didn't like all that green!



I decided to remove it and find another background.
Several hours of stitch-picking later, I was ready for auditions.
I tried practically everything I had on the shelf.  
Here are just a few.


Too light


Too dark


Too brown


Too bright


Too busy


Too gray

A few dear friends suffered with me and my auditions for WEEKS!


Then I went to the Houston Quilt Festival and found what I was looking for!
It's one of the new woven plaids from Kaffe Fassett.
The top is about 87" square, plenty big for a queen size bed.
I finished it last week.




THEN, just yesterday, I went to the Farmer's Market, like I do every Sunday.
The woman farmer I always buy from gave me this!



She said her great-grandmother had made it from old family clothes.
What a treasure!  I tried to talk her out of giving it away.
But she said she had no room for it.  
So I gladly brought it home.  



While Julie's was sewn in blocks and not yet embroidered,
this one was sewn all on one sheet with embroidery.

Now I have TWO vintage scrap tops to quilt and to love!

News just in:  

Bill Volckening found where the original inspiration quilt came from.
The quilt was shown in the European Patchwork show in France in 2012.  

Katell Renon's quilt group in France was also inspired by the original.
They made a beauty!

          Two arrested in Delhi jewellery shop robbery case   

New Delhi, July 1 (IANS) Two robbers have been arrested in connection with a broad daylight robbery in a jewellery shop in the national capital, police said on Saturday.

Police said the accused persons -- Rakesh Rastogi, 57, and Raja Ram Deshmukh, 55, natives of Muradabad in Uttar Pradesh -- were wanted for a sensational robbery, committed on June 15 in a jewellery shop in south Delhi's Malviya Nagar area.

"Rastogi and Deshmukh were arrested on Saturday afternoon from Botanical Garden Metro Station in Noida's Sector 37 following a tip-off. Police also recovered robbed gold jewellery valued at several lakhs of rupees from their possession," Deputy Commissioner of Police Ishwar Singh told IANS.

"Police had on June 27 arrested their other associates, identified as Azeem, 26, Dilshad Mohammad, 26, and Saurabh Verma, 24, from different areas of Uttar Pradesh. With covered faces and carrying firearms and meat choppers, they entered victim Pramod Jain's jewellery shop in Malviya Nagar," Singh said.

They threatened Jain and escaped with all the jewellery, valued at Rs 65 lakh, from his shop, the police officer added.

"Both Rastogi and Deshmukh are being produced in the court and will be taken on police remand to unearth the entire conspiracy of the daring robbery. Several teams of south District are conducting raids at Bijnor, Moradabad and Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh to arrest the remaining accused," he added.

          New York — Fashion's Golden City 1967   

Most other fashion industries of the world rely for solvency on the American store buyer: New York itself can import the best from Paris, London and Rome, and exacts the utmost in professionalism from her own fashion industry. The enormous demand in rich America has made New York the financial centre of world fashion, considers Cherry Twiss.





MINI-SKIRTED velvet doublet and orange hose photographed at the Electric Circus. Note: This particular photograph was chosen as the magazine cover shot for the seven page fashion report from New York contained within, but apart for the previous brief description which I found in the contents section, there were no other details included about it. However, I'm pretty sure that it is the work of the designer Diana Dew, which was available from the boutique at the Electric Circus. I've uploaded an illustrated example of her design from a print advert for the Electric Circus Store below, also from December 1967.




Muttonchop Dress in brown crepe and brown velvet by Diana Dew, available from the boutique at the Electric Circus, December 1967.




THE STRAIGHT SHIFT—another New York basic—is given a bosom-revealing top, by Rudi Gernreich, the originator of the topless swimsuit. A transparent caramel silk crepe bodice joins a lined wool skirt crepe skirt. Its lines are almost as pure as those of the suspension wires scanning the skyline of Brooklyn Bridge (Most shops ordered this dress with the bodice lined).



RUDI GERNREICH is so highly thought of that his clothes are donated to museums of modern art in the United States. This short silk apron dress, above, by him, the apron in a contrasting print, is supported by some of the ever-increasing youth of the Puerto Rican section of Harlem.




NEW YORK fashion is personified by the dazzling pink crepe dress above — dead simple and an obvious choice for the casually chic. It was designed by Leo Narducci, who specialises in the middle price range. It is coolly at home even in this no-women, no-whites atmosphere of a Harlem pool-room. The ''little dress'' is an American forte.





THE CONSPICUOUS EAST frames the long printed silk crepe shift above by Oscar de la Renta, the newest star in the New York design firmament. His design holds it's own with the ultra-violet lighting and psychedelic murals of the Electric Circus, New York's swingiest discotheque, in the East Village. The stimulants are drugs — the Circus is strictly non-alcoholic. The constantly changing colour films projected on ceilings and walls — stretched with jersey stockinette — and flickering strobe lighting give the illusion of being ''turned on''. Note: Although uncredited in the magazine, I believe this to be a photograph of the Electric Circus mural artist 'Louis Delsarte' alongside the model, surrounded by his work, on the stairway to the entrance of the club.




TUNIC AND SHORTS above, in wool, are by Oscar de la Renta, and typify the present classic's-can-swing trend of New York clothes. De la Renta's clothes are worn by the '''best dressed'' set, who like the Europeanised approach. These were photographed in the easy-going atmosphere of a Sunday game of boule in the Italian district.





MINI CULOTTES, above, by sportswear manufacturers like Ginori have invaded the American scene. Designed in brown twill, this whole outfit, from gaucho hat to the thigh boots, is clearly influenced by London. Only a confident pedestrian would take as background the intertwined overpasses of highways to and from Manhattan, the nerve centre of New York.





THE SHIRT DRESS, the New York classic stand-by, is softened and romanticised, above, by Donald Brooks in white organza strewn with organza tulips. The wind-blown look was caused by the arrival of of the half-hourly helicopter from John F. Kennedy Airport on the roof of the Pan American building, towering majestically over Park Avenue in the heart f New York. This service, scheduled to connect with Pan Am flights, speeds travel-worn passengers between airport and city centre in minutes.




AMERICANISED KIMONO, above, was designed by Chester Weinberg, whose clothes are an essential buy for hundreds of upper-income shoppers throughout the states. His reputation is based on his ability to create truly American designs out of ideas from all over the world. Doubly stating this dress's Americanisation is the blatantly Broadway atmosphere of the Fun City night-club, where scantily clad showgirls frug incessantly in large windows on the corner of Broadway and Times Square.

          How to Remove Facebook Page Like Count or Fans and Rename Page   

Aminul Islam Jewel asks in BIMPA: I really need to rename my Facebook Page name. But, Facebook is not allowing me to rename my page for having more than 200 fans. 275 to be exact. How can I rename the page?

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Renaming your Facebook Page

If you have 275 fans, then it is easy to remove 75 fans. Remove 75 fans from your Facebook page and then rename it. It works. Just be choosy in who to remove. See below for the thought process to remove.

How to Remove Facebook Page Like or Fans

How to Remove Facebook Page Like or Fans

Go to your Facebook Page and if you are an admin of the page, you should see the Dashboard at the top of your page. Please don’t go directly to the Like Tab in your page. Because, you can not remove fans from there. Instead:

  1. Click the “See All” link beside “New Likes”. It’ll pop-in with a new dialog box showing people and pages that liked your page.
  2. At the top of the pop-in dialog box, you’ll see a drop-down option that says “People who like this”. If it says something else, then select "People who like this" from the drop-down menu.
  3. At the right side of the list. there are remove or “X” buttons. Click to remove the fans you don’t want.

Thought Process for Removing Page Fans

But, as I mentioned earlier, you should apply some thought process in removing the fans. And they are: 

Fake accounts

They never help you in engagement. Engagement is more important than likes. Good Engagement helps to spread your posts like virus. Rather, having fake accounts pollutes your Engagement Ratio (i.e. the % of fans engaged to your page). Not sure if Facebook uses it as a signal. But what if they do? Then your efforts in Facebook Page Marketing will be useless.

Many businesses are using the numbers and selling or boasting high number with fake likes. But, just like Google Algorithm update, please also expect EdgeRank Update from Facebook. So, it’s always smart to keep your fan-base clean.

Brand Accounts

Brand accounts are the accounts that do not represent a person, but a company. You should remove them for the same reason of fake accounts. They really don’t ensure much engagement and most of them are interested in spamming. Moreover, they are breaking Facebook terms.

However, many businesses can like other pages “as page”. This is done by logging as page and then hitting the like button on another page. If you come across Fans that does not have “Add Friend” button, instead have “Like" button  then that fan liked your page as a page. It’s advised not to remove them. However, you need to be sure that they are not your competitors or 2nd level competitors like 2nd level cousins :-)

Geographically Irrelevant Fans

You can remove fans that are not geographically relevant for your page. e.g. a US fan for a local Bangladeshi page. Again it also depends on the language as well. If your posts are mostly in a specific language and you see fans from other countries without any engagement, it might have been a mistake. So, you should help the fan. Since such fans may report your page, when they realize that they did not like your page and you somehow hacked their account. Which can hurt you more than to have just one fan. 

Demographically Irrelevant Fans

Facebook has very strict advertising guideline for Dating Sites. But, for page like, they are not much strict. But, Facebook might impose strictness in future. Therefore, you should remove fans that are not demographically relevant for your page. e.g.

  • A female fan for a male-oriented product or vice versa (though, large number of male fans in Lingerie page is not a bad thing).
  • 18+ product like Durex with a under 18 fan
  • Married fan, while the Product is intended for single people, etc.

Competitor Fans

Yes, competitors also follow you to understand your Facebook Marketing strategies and you might not notice. BTW, you also can do the same and not let them know. But, if you can spot them, remove them.

You may also look after second level competitors. e.g. many companies hire Internet Marketing Agencies to do their Facebook Page Marketing. And to understand the playing field, the first thing they do is, follow some competitors.

F&F Fans

You can remove your friends and family from the fan list. You always can request them later to like the page. In fact, you can use the invite tool to invite them again. So, you don’t need to worry much about removing them.

          Air Force’s Economic Impact Rebounds From Past Lows but Down From Peak   
By Grand Forks Herald
Grand Forks Air Force Base had a $252 million economic impact on the region in 2014, an increase of nearly 24 percent over the previous year's $203.7 million.

The base's annual economic impact analysis, released this week, shows that the impact has increased by 33 percent since the 10-year low point of $189 million in 2011, the year the first Global Hawk high-altitude drone arrived in Grand Forks.

In 2010, the last KC-135 air refueling tanker left Grand Forks as the base moved from a refueling mission to unmanned aerial systems under the 69th Reconnaissance Group of the 319th Air Base Wing.

"That's great news. A $250 million impact is huge," said Bruce Gjovig, director of the Center for Innovation at UND. "The Global Hawk mission has certainly been the catalyst for growth."

The report for Fiscal 2014, which ended Sept. 30, shows the base had 1,586 active duty airmen. While that's slightly fewer than the 1,615 on the same date in 2013, it's nearly 400 more than in 2011.

The total number of personnel, including airmen, family members and civilians at the base totaled 3,984, compared with 4,116 in 2013 and 3,741 in 2011.

The report also estimated annual dollar value of jobs created by the base at $35.9 million, an increase of $2.1 million from 2013 and a rise of $6 million since 2011.

The air base's economic impact is the third largest in the Grand Forks region, trailing only UND and the agricultural industry, according to Barry Wilfahrt, president and CEO of the Grand Forks and East Grand Forks Chamber of Commerce.

"Grand Forks Air Force Base is providing a lot of good quality jobs," he said. "Obviously it's a vital part of not just Grand Forks' economy, but the whole state of North Dakota's economy."

In 2013, the air base was the 12th largest employer in Grand Forks County, according to Job Service North Dakota.

Despite growth over the past year, the base still lags nearly 42 percent behind the mark of 2008, when 2,189 active duty airmen were stationed in Grand Forks and the local economic impact totaled $433.9 million.

The 319th Air Base Wing at Grand Forks recently received the Air Force Outstanding Unit Award for 2014, while several units within the 319th also received awards for outstanding performance last year, according to the report.

"We should be proud of our base, and we are proud of the base. It's a major, major part of our community," said Tom Ford, coordinator of the Grand Forks Base Realignment Impact Committee. "It shows that we really have one of the hidden jewels in the Air Force in Grand Forks."

BEAUTIFUL POM POM MULE


the 9am - Midnight Wardrobe

when I worked in the Fashion Office of  Sak's 5th Avenue we were often asked to
create a travel warbrobe for certain clients, which meant knowing what they already owned

& adding new pieces so they would be completely updated.

 using Polyvore I have pulled together the pieces below which should
suffice for any woman who could be attending any function anywhere. 

once you look through
the pieces I'll explain below why I think they work together,
and why I don't think you need to pack other pieces.

on another note:  if you know you won't be attending anything super fancy,
like meeting friends for something wonderful, or you're just a MUCH MORE CASUAL
person, leave out the glitter top & the dressy long skirt.
otherwise, you need everything else.
I'm in Hawaii often and believe me no one dresses up in Hawaii!


and OK,  if you're attending a ball perhaps you do need a couple of other things :)'s


"Perfect Travel Wardrobe" by splenderosa on Polyvore


BLACK & WHITE with RED or TURQUOISE


CLOTHING
1 fabulous blazer/jacket (non wrinkle, lint repelling)
3 tee shirt tops (wash by hand, hang up)
2 dressier tops
1 pair longer shorts like Bermudas
2 pants
1 casual long skirt
1 dressier long skirt
1 cardigan (if you need one)

total  
12 PIECES of apparel
= multitudes of outfits,
the scarves make even basic black look spiffy & fashionable

bunches of underwear, socks if you wear them, hosiery if you wear
(roll all of it, put inside other items)


3 Handbags

huge one for the plane, car, etc.
2 small, black & red

5 SHOES
OK, let's face it...we gotta be comfortable
1 tennies (I love the high tops)
1 sandal
1 flats
1 low-heeled bootie
1 high heels
notice the colors of the shoes, black with red/turquoise/white


2 (or more) long scarves
the long ones can do double duty by tying around your head
on a bad hair day, or draping your shoulders in a cool restaurant,
or just adding spice hanging around your neck, along with your long necklaces
red/black, turquoise/black
1 pashmina (black/white circles)

1 silk flower lapel pin

if you don't want the flower, feel it's too frou-frou,
add a big brooch, or a couple of brooches, to the lapel or top.
seriously, no one is going to think you're over-the-top if they don't know you!

JEWELRY
this is where you can shine.
  jewelry can make any outfit important.

3-4 Bracelets
 cause they are hugely important now
wrap bracelets are such a big rage now, put several one at the same time.
coordinating earrings, of your choice

a couple of necklaces, fashionable ones
1 necklace to wear all the time, a darling, dainty one.

RINGS

truly, I cannot be without jewelry, it makes
the simplest outfit seem important



OUTFITS
now, let's see

1. the sequined top, with the long split skirt, blazer, silk flower,
high-heeled booties, fabulous earrings...
go to dinner at the finest restaurant,
even Anna Wintour would approve.

2.  the beautiful tie-front blouse left outside, the other long skirt, or the black dressy pant,
add the striped cardigan or the blazer if you need a bit of cover,
the stripes go with the dots on the pashmina too.

3.  the cardigan & the long sleeved striped tee will look excellent together,
worn with the white Bermudas or a pair of slacks, you're totally happening fashion-wise.
& think how cute you'll be with the black/white ballerina shoes.

4. wear the tie front blouse open over one of the plain tees,
add the long dangling necklaces & you're dressed for whatever comes up,
but yet you're casual too.
the turquoise sandals would work here.

5.  I am a true believer in high-top shoes, I think they rock, they certainly
don't look "old" and they're comfortable.

6.  even if you're travelling with a group you won't be wearing the same thing
every other day. there are enough pieces to mix it up.

7. try to pack everything completely flat, put plastic bags between items
(like those from the dry cleaner)
totally eliminates wrinkling and they weigh nothing.
if you don't have a fold-over bag lay all the clothing out, on top of
a big plastic bag, then layer everything, roll it all up and put into
a duffle or carryon.  believe me, this works and saves so much time later on.

8. use every square inch of empty space to pack small items,
like jewelry inside shoes, etc. + they don't rattle around when packed this way.
I roll up underwear & stuff into shoes, cause I CANNOT skimp on panties.

9. I don't travel with jeans.  ever.
there are so many beautiful things available I don't want to wear jeans.


final word:   the fabulous pashmina 
never go anywhere without one,
if it's in the way, tie it around your bag. 


other women have said it...
don't take too much.
there are no Sherpas.
unless you have a driver who picks you up at each
airport immediately after you retrieve your luggage,
you will be schlepping quite a lot on your own.
I absolutely did not like learning this new fact of life.


the main thing is to have a wonderful time !

now, tell me...what is the ONE item of clothing you always take with you?

          Trentenni high tech   

articolo tratto da www.blogonomy.it


Diecimila euro. Tanti sono bastati a Luca Ascani, a 25 anni appena, per lanciare nel 2004 GoAdv, società di servizi d’informazione dal 2007 quotata alla Borsa di Parigi e che oggi ha una capitalizzazione di circa 60 milioni di euro. Scommessa vinta, dunque, per un enfant prodige «senza agganci», che in pochi anni ha saputo trasformare un’idea apparentemente irrealizzabile in una macchina da soldi: stando agli analisti dovrebbe chiudere il 2008 con un giro d’affari di 40 milioni di euro e uno staff di 100 persone in tutta Europa (vedere l’articolo a pagina 19). Ma Ascani non è certo l’unico «genio tecnologico» made in Italy degli ultimi anni. Anzi, nonostante che il nostro Paese sconti un ritardo storico sul fronte dell’innovazione tecnologica (e non solo), le buone idee non mancano: secondo i dati espressamente elaborati per Economy dalla Camera di commercio di Milano, alla fine del 2008 erano esattamente 130.731 le imprese hi-tech italiane, il 3,6% in più del 2007. E la sola Lombardia ne vanta 28.470 (vedere la mappa a pagina 20). A mancare, semmai, sono i fondi di venture capital: quelli che, per capirci, negli Stati Uniti hanno finanziato migliaia di grandi e di piccole aziende tecnologiche, da Google fino alle miriadi di società da anni presenti nella mitica Silicon Valley, l’areea a sud di San Francisco che è tra le regioni più hi-tech del globo.
In Italia più che altrove c’è un folto gruppo di imprenditori di prima generazione, trentenni o poco più, che hanno saputo rischiare nel settore tecnologico. E di fronte alla carenza di capitali hanno iniziato chiamando a raccolta parenti e amici per racimolare i primi soldi da investire. «È quello che gli anglosassoni chiamano l’approccio delle “3F”, ossia family, friends and fools (cioè famiglia, amici e folli, ndr)» dice a Economy Alberto Giusti, 36 anni, «imprenditore seriale» ormai giunto alla sua sesta avventura hi-tech

I business angel. Alle «3F», in alcuni casi, si aggiungono poi i cosiddetti «business angel», ossia gli investitori informali, manager o professionisti, che sono soliti intervenire quando l’attività è ancora in fase embrionale. «Sono privati con patrimoni accumulati sul campo, generalmente nelle stesse attività che vanno poi a finanziare. Per questo motivo, a differenza delle banche, sono in grado di valutare i rischi dei progetti di start-up» specifica Simone Bassanini, senior manager della società di consulenza Kpmg che, con il supporto dell’Aifi (Associazione italiana private equity e venture capital) e di Intesa Sanpaolo, ha tracciato l’identikit dei «business angel» italiani. Il loro investimento medio si aggira sui 180-200 mila euro circa, pari, in genere, a una quota del 30-40%, o anche meno, del capitale sociale. Portano soldi, dunque, ma anche competenze e in 3-5 anni escono, vendendo le proprie quote a terzi, di solito investitori formali: private equity o, ancora, partner industriali veri e propri.
Purché sia possibile trovarne. In Italia, infatti, la strada in questo settore è tutta in salita. Nel primo semestre del 2008 l’Aifi ha calcolato che su 170 operazioni di private equity e di venture capital, per un totale di 2,77 miliardi di euro, soltanto 40 interventi per 52 milioni di euro complessivi hanno riguardato start-up al livello d’inizio. Queste operazioni, oltretutto, sono state coperte nel 50% dei casi da finanziarie regionali e solo in minima parte da banche (7,5%) o da società di gestione del risparmio (2,5%). Eppure «se c’è un momento in cui diventa vitale puntare su nuove idee di business è proprio quello attuale» interviene Alessandro Spada, presidente di Innovab, l’azienda per l’innovazione della Camera di commercio di Milano, Monza e Brianza. «Solamente così si può dare nuovo impulso all’economia una volta che la crisi sarà passata».
Tanto più che con il decreto-legge 112 varato il 25 giugno scorso, meglio noto come «decreto Brunetta», sono state introdotte per la prima volta in Italia misure fiscali che incentivano gli investimenti in start-up. Che sia giunta l’ora della svolta? I tre giovani imprenditori intervistati da Economy nelle pagine che seguono si augurano di sì. E ricordano: «C’è chi pensava che fossimo folli, e invece…».
La loro è una vera professione di ottimismo.

Una ventottenne di Milano ha unito gioielli e tecnologia e oggi vende le sue creazioni nelle migliori gioiellerie d’Europa. Un trentaduenne di Vicenza ha fondato un’azienda di telefonia «low cost» per le chiamate all’estero. Un romano di 29 anni ha fondato un’azienda che ha scavalcato le Alpi per quotarsi a Parigi: ora capitalizza 60 milioni di euro. Antonella Fiorentino, Manuel Zanella e Luca Ascani, nonostante le difficoltà di accesso al credito e le ritrosie di una cultura «made in Italy» che non agevola le start-up tecnologiche di giovani imprenditori, ce l’hanno fatta. Ecco come ci sono riusciti.

Antonella Fiorentino
Gioielli che suonano molto bene
(e le star stanno ad ascoltare)

Si dice che alle spalle di ogni grande uomo agisca una donna forte. In questo caso, una giovane di carattere e dall’indubbio talento imprenditoriale sta dietro un’iniziativa commerciale partita nel dicembre 2008 e che, nel giro di un mese, è già riuscita a conquistare ordini e commesse per un valore superiore ai 100 mila euro.
Lei è Antonella Fiorentino, 28 anni: a cavallo fra il 2007 e il 2008 ha fondato ad Azzate Varesino la società di trading Double Crazy, dalla quale è sorto poi il marchio commerciale «Kiwie Jewels». La missione era trasformare gli oggetti hi-tech più popolari e affermati in veri gioielli, incastonandoli in cornici e in supporti fatti di autentiche pietre preziose. Grazie ad alcune precedenti iniziative commerciali, durate circa un anno, Antonella e il marito Daniele De Molli (37 anni) hanno incamerato la maggior parte del milione necessario all’apertura della nuova impresa.
Hanno sviluppato contatti cruciali con i produttori asiatici di prodotti digitali, tra Mp3 e cuffie per cellulari, mantenendo il design in Italia. «Quello dell’elettronica» dice Fiorentino a Economy «è però un settore maturo dove è difficile riuscire». Per farlo serviva qualcosa di innovativo, che differenziasse l’offerta. «L’abbiamo trovato nei gioielli» continua Fiorentino. «I prodotti Kiwie Jewels oggi sono in 42 vetrine in tutta Italia».
I guadagni dell’azienda hanno raggiunto gli 80 mila euro nel giro di un mese, già alla fine del dicembre 2008. Ma è stato solo l’inizio, perché dopo avere preso parte alla fiera mondiale dell’elettronica di Las Vegas e dopo avere trovato spazio nei punti vendita più chic di Londra, ora Kiwie Jewels vuole ampliare la sua rete. Da febbraio sarà anche in Spagna e in Svizzera, dapprima nei negozi di Foxtown a Mendrisio e poi in altre dieci gioiellerie.
In Italia le creazioni di Kiwie Jewels sono in boutique «trendy»: il Cielo di piazza Duomo a Milano e Brusco, il distributore di Rolex e di Bulgari del centro di Roma. Ma tra due mesi i tecnogioielli saranno in altri 100 negozi: «Naturalmente siamo molto interessati a mercati come gli Emirati Arabi o gli Stati Uniti» dice Antonella «dove però abbiamo già una serie di testimonial di primo piano: ci hanno garantito un’ottima visibilità internazionale».
Sono cantanti come l’emergente Rihanna o famosi come Mariah Carey; ma anche attrici del calibro di Eva Longoria (Casalinghe disperate), cui il marito Tony Parker, campione della pallacanestro, ha appena regalato un ciondolo a forma di cuore che si schiude per scoprire due lettori di file Mp3: è il modello «Twinheart» di Kiwie Jewels. «Crediamo che possa essere un successo per il San Valentino 2009» dice la giovane manager «ed è in vendita a soltanto 80 euro».
L’idea di base è che il lusso hi-tech debba restare il più possibile alla portata di tutti, anche se i prodotti di fascia alta con diamanti, come l’Mp5, partono da 400 euro. Progettata e disegnata nell’atelier di Azzate, in provincia di Varese, ma realizzata in Asia con il supporto delle sedi aperte a Shenzhen, in Cina, la linea Kiwie Jewels è rivestita con pietre incastonate di provenienza certificata, lavorate in Italia da maestri orafi. La gamma, che oggi è fatta di sette «famiglie» di prodotto (compresi gli Swars, orecchini-auricolare tempestati di preziosi), accoglierà presto creazioni inedite: «Il 14 febbraio» dichiara Fiorentino «sarà anche la nostra festa, perché presenteremo le nuove proposte proprio per il giorno degli innamorati. E se tutto andrà bene, il prossimo passo sarà un negozio monomarca».
Intanto c’è la soddisfazione di essere cresciuti senza aiuti. «Abbiamo avuto credito dalle banche» conclude Fiorentino «ma per piccola parte del capitale iniziale. E solo la Popolare di Bergamo ha creduto davvero in noi».

Manuel Zanella
L’inventore che convinse il «mito»
della sua infanzia a entrare nei telefoni

L’ufficio di Manuel Zanella è una macchia di colore arancio-verde nel grigio della zona industriale di Vicenza. A pochi centimetri dal computer, sulla scrivania, la foto di suo figlio nato il 12 dicembre 2008. Sulla parete di fronte, due copertine di un mensile economico. La prima ha in primo piano il volto di Silvio Berlusconi. Sulla seconda campeggia Ennio Doris, numero uno di Mediolanum. «Un giorno metterò lì accanto la terza copertina: magari quella di Economy» dice. «E ci sarà la mia foto».
Presuntuoso? Forse. Di sicuro ambizioso e determinato. Zanella, 32 anni, è figlio di un perito elettrotecnico che aveva una fonderia venduta nel 2005 e il mito di Doris, vicentino, imprenditore «fai-da-te» se lo porta dietro da quando è bambino, da quando voleva fare l’inventore. Dopo una laurea in ingegneria elettronica a Padova, inizia a lavorare come «family banker» proprio in Mediolanum. Nel 2003 si sposa e parte per il Kenya. E lì nasce l’idea che nel 2006 lo porta alla fondazione di Zero Mobile: «Per telefonare e ricevere chiamate dall’Africa all’Italia spendevo 6 euro al minuto, un’enormità» racconta.
Come evitare quel salasso? «Non ho fatto altro che guardare a quanto già esisteva in Inghilterra e Stati Uniti» risponde«e ho fondato Zero Mobile, un operatore globale di telefonia low cost rivolto solo a chi viaggia all’estero per lavoro e per turismo».
Particolare è anche il canale di vendita: solo agenzie di viaggi e società che forniscono servizi business alle imprese, oltre alle agenzie Lottomatica. L’idea c’era. Ma servivano i soldi: almeno 250 mila euro, per iniziare. Zanella sapeva che le banche difficilmente avrebbero finanziato una start-up. E voleva che fosse proprio Doris il suo «business angel».

Un incontro difficile. Così decide di andare a casa sua: a Tombolo, vicino Vicenza. Tenta due volte di consegnare una lettera a Doris. Poi ottiene un incontro, ma con un suo collaboratore che non si mostra interessato. Zanella non si arrende. Torna a Tombolo e consegna una terza lettera. È il luglio del 2006. La segreteria di Doris lo chiama e gli fissa un appuntamento. «Questa volta Doris c’era» racconta Zanella. «Mi ha detto: io di telefonia non capisco molto. Ma voglio fidarmi della tua determinazione».
E ha finanziato Zero Mobile con 100 mila euro attraverso due società personali, H Invest eH Equity. Altri 150 mila sono arrivati da Daniele Bortolotti, che è il cognato di Zanella e il titolare di Petrolvilla Group, 400 milioni di ricavi da prodotti petroliferi. Nel 2007, poi, è stato fatto un aumento di capitale fino a 400 milioni. Oggi il 75% di Zero Mobile è in mano alle due società di Doris, il 10% a Petrolvilla Group e il 15% a Zanella. L’azienda ha otto dipendenti e coinvolge una rete di circa 100 agenti. E le sim di Zero Mobile sono in vendita in circa 900 agenzie, più nella rete di Lottomatica. 
Il meccanismo è semplice: Zero Mobile ha un accordo con un operatore di telefonia estone che gli mette a disposizione la piattaforma di roaming internazionale e un sistema («call back») tale per cui la chiamata viene trasformata da internazionale a nazionale. I risparmi arrivano all’85%. E dopo la sim è nato anche lo «Zerofonino», un cellulare dual sim Umts realizzato dalla cinese Techfit (la stessa che produce apparecchi per la Nokia) in cui inserire due card: la prima dell’operatore tradizionale, la seconda di Zero Mobile per i viaggi all’estero. Il business plan prevede 15 milioni di fatturato entro il 2011 e il break even nel 2009. «Gli accordi che abbiamo già in mano ci consentono di pensare che rispetteremo gli obiettivi» dice sicuro Zanella: l’«inventore» vicentino che ha convinto il suo mito dell’infanzia a rischiare con lui.

Luca Ascani
Partire su internet con 10 mila euro
e arrivare a capitalizzare 60 milioni

È del 1979, ma tiene moltissimo a dire che «non ha ancora 30 anni», perché è nato in novembre. Luca Ascani, romano, sventola all’estero la bandiera del talento italiano alla guida di GoAdv, società di servizi d’informazione e di comunicazione, quotata al listino Alternext (Nyse-Euronext) di Parigi, con una capitalizzazione che oggi vale circa 60 milioni di euro. La sua è la classica storia dell’enfant prodige «senza agganci». Non ha una laurea nel cassetto perché, dice a Economy, «ho fatto due anni di giurisprudenza, ma non faceva per me», ed entra nel mondo internet in maniera casuale. Era il 1999 quando, a soli 20 anni, viene reclutato da BuyCentral, società specializzata nella comparazione dei prezzi su internet, per fare uno stage a Parigi. «L’unico punto di forza che avevo era la buona conoscenza della lingua francese» dice. «Ma non ero un patito di computer e anche oggi non so realizzare nemmeno una riga di html».
Essere italiano, invece, gli dà la possibilità nel 2000 di diventare il responsabile del lancio del progetto BuyCentral in Italia: e come partner e amministratore delegato. Quattro anni dopo BuyCentral viene acquisita da Lycos e, nel luglio 2004, Ascani si lancia in un nuovo progetto: la società di servizi d’informazione e comunicazione online GoAdv. Con lui c’è il socio Salvatore Esposito, 34 anni, che dopo BuyCentral ha fatto un’esperienza in Altavista.
Partito con un investimento di 10 mila euro, Ascani è riuscito a crescere sviluppando una società con un fatturato di oltre 18,4 milioni di euro al primo semestre, che si è chiuso il 30 giugno 2008, e uno staff di 100 persone in tutta Europa. La chiusura d’anno è attesa alla fine del febbraio 2009 con un fatturato che gli analisti stimano sui 38 milioni di euro. Ascani ricorda di avere avuto da subito una visione paneuropea per lo sviluppo della sua impresa: «Ho iniziato in Italia, che non è considerata il punto di partenza ideale per avviare un business online: ma sono andato contro gli stereotipi e ho dimostrato che non era solo una possibilità, ma una vera opportunità». Così l’imprenditore ha deciso che la società non si limitasse al mercato italiano e in pochi mesi ha aperto un ufficio nel Regno Unito: «Un anno dopo eravamo attivi in otto Paesi europei e questo ci ha consentito di sviluppare velocemente il business».

Diciassette milioni di utenti. Adesso GoAdv conta su 17 milioni di utenti al mese, con una rete di siti web ad alta visibilità attivi nel Regno Unito, in Germania, Paesi Bassi, Francia, Italia, Spagna, Svezia e Polonia e sedi a Roma, Dublino, Parigi, Manila e Casablanca. La rete include il gruppo di portali generalisti Excite Europe, acquistati subito dopo la quotazione in Borsa;BetterDeals, una serie di siti verticali personalizzati che aiuta gli utenti a sfruttare al meglio le ricerche sul web; e Track Set, società di Pisa che opera nella web analytics, ovvero analizza i percorsi di navigazione degli utenti sui siti.
«Per una crescita reale è di vitale importanza adottare una prospettiva paneuropea e una visione che vada oltre il territorio, specialmente nel mondo internet» dice Ascani che va fiero del fatto di non essere mai ricorso alle banche. «Il nostro sviluppo è sempre stato organico, non ho mai avuto bisogno di investire al di là della liquidità che la mia azienda produceva» dice. La gestione oculata del denaro la ritiene un’eredità familiare: «Ho sempre seguito il prezioso consiglio di mio padre: prima fare profitto e poi investire» dice.
Per questo Ascani procede sempre a piccoli passi, attenendosi a due punti fermi: «rentability and scalability», ovvero il business deve essere in utile e scalare, altrimenti si crea un limite alla crescita. «Momenti difficili ce ne sono stati» ammette «ma lo stress negativo può durare qualche ora, poi bisogna trovare la soluzione, positivizzare sempre».
Un passo fondamentale, però, lo ha fatto due anni fa, cedendo al mondo della finanza con l’ingresso in Borsa. «Siamo stati fortunati perché siamo entrati prima della discesa e abbiamo tenuto bene» dice. La quotazione è avvenuta con un private placement interamente sottoscritto, per 5,5 milioni di euro, dal fondo di private equity Truffle venture.
E l’impatto con la finanza è stato positivo, visto che nel giugno 2008 Ascani è tornato sul mercato con il lancio di un’obbligazione convertibile da 11,5 milioni e scadenza cinque anni, sempre rivolta a investitori istituzionali. «Adesso abbiamo 20 milioni di euro in cassa da investire in acquisizioni e strategicamente nel 2009 ci guarderemo intorno». Per crescere ancora. A piccoli passi.


          Cruising in Lithuania   
West Hollywood, June 1997

Lane and I haven't lived together for a year, and I've been sort of dating Kevin the Vampire, so we're not sure if we are a couple or not.  But we don't want to break our tradition of a trip every summer, either Europe or a road trip across the U.S.

"Paris, Brussels, and Amsterdam?" I suggest.  "We haven't been there in a while.  Or maybe Germany?"

"No Germany!"  he exclaims.  "I want to go somewhere off the beaten path.  Lithuania.  In search of my Jewish ancestors."

"Your mother was Polish -- we've already been to Poland to check out her heritage -- and your father was from California."

"But Dad's parents were Litvak -- Lithuanian Jews.  Bubbe -- Grandma -- immigrated with her parents in 1915.  She used to tell stories of the shtetl of Kvedarna, where her father was a rabbi."

The more I research Lithuania, the less I want to visit.  Granted, the Lithuanian language is the closest we have to the original Indo-European.

English:  My sausage is very big.
Hindi: Mera sosej bahut bada hai
Lithuanian: Mano dešra yra labai didelė

But it is an extremely homophobic country, like Mississippi squared.  No gay bars, no bathhouses, no nothing.  Plus 95% of the Jewish population was killed in the Holocaust.

95%!  Why would you want to go there?

But Lane is  adamant about investigating his Bubbe's Rabbi father, and he is paying for the plane tickets, so....Paris, Amsterdam, and Lithuania

Day 1:

There are no nonstop flights from Amsterdam to Vilnius, so we have  to go through Frankfurt, arriving at 1:30 pm.

Six years after independence, Soviet influence is everywhere: most signs are in Russian, not Lithuanian; there are long blocks of Brutopian apartment complexes, and statues of liberated workers gazing defiantly at the future; there are police officers and soldiers everywhere, who keep asking for our papers.

But our hotel is in the Old Quarter, on a winding Baroque street near the University and the Signatory House (where independence was declared).

We tour the rather austere Palace of the Grand Dukes and the Vilnius Cathedral, have dinner in a French restaurant, and, near dusk, see the statue of the Gaon, Elijah ben Solomon Zalman (1720-1797), a Talmudic scholar and leader of the non-Hasidic Lithuanian Jews.

Then back to the hotel and to bed, having not met any actual Lithuanians, gay or straight, Jewish or Gentile.













Day 2:

After breakfast, we rent a car (quite a feat in a country not set up for tourism) and drive to Kaunas, about an hour away, which once had a Jewish population of 40,000 (today about 500, mostly elderly).   We arrive in time for Shabbat services at the Ohel Jahov Synagogue, where the congregation consists entirely of elderly men.  We don't talk to anyone.

In the afternoon, we visit the Museum of the Devil and Kaunas Castle, then the small, austere monument to the Jews who died in the Holocaust.

"This is all very interesting," I tell Lane, "But I need some masculine companionship.  What's the point of traveling, if you don't meet locals?  Preferably hot ones."

Our Spartacus guide doesn't list any gay bars in Kaunas, but it lists a "mixed bar," Baras, which caters to "students, bohemians, transvestites, fairies, and misfits."


Although we roil at being labeled "misfits," we check it out.

Mostly students and bohemians, not a lot of cruising going on.  I try to strike up a conversation with a twink reading a paperback book and drinking beer: in his 20s, slim, pale, weird half-mohawk hair style, horn-rimmed glasses:

"Mano vardas Boomer.  Aš esu iš Toronto." (I always claim to be Canadian while traveling in Europe, to avoid the extreme anti-American prejudice.)

He responds briefly and coolly, in English.  Soon I back off.

Well, at least I talked to a local.



Day 3

Our hotel has a gym, so we can work out before hitting the road for Kvedarna, where Lane's great-grandfather was a rabbi.  It's about two hours west over flat, green countryside.

The main street doesn't look anything like a main street: just single story, gable-roofed Lithuanian farmhouses, painted orange and green, so widely separated that they seemed rural, not urban.  There's a gas station, a grocery store, a Catholic church, a row of ugly apartment buildings leftover from Soviet times, and a monument to Vytautas the Great (1350-1430), the leader of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and a hero in the independence movement.

The only trace of a Jewish presence is a small, overgrown Jewish cemetery, with fifty or so markers in Hebrew.  We can't find one for Lane's great-grandfather, the rabbi, although there are a few with his Bubbe's name that could be relatives.

The trip has been a bust: some interesting sights, but mostly sadness, loss, and loneliness.  It's an odd feeling being in a country of 3.6 million people, and not knowing anyone.

Since there's no restaurant in town, we stop at Kvedarna's small grocery store for some meat, cheese, and bread to make sandwiches.

There's a twink boy outside, eating a popsicle, shirtless even though it's a cool, rainy day: slim, pale body, pinprick nipples, tight abs.  He has the same weird hair and eyeglasses as the guy from last night.

For a moment I think it's the same person, so I say "Sveiki!  Small world, isn't it?"

He smiles.  "Americans?"

I realize my mistake.  "Taip.  I'm Boomer, and this is Lane.  We're from Hollywood, California."

"Joku."  He switches the popsicle to his left hand so he can shake our hands.  "You are from Hollywood!  You are movie stars?"

"We've been in some tv shows," I lie.

"Palike!  You will give me your...your..."  He made a writing sign.  "Why you come to Kvedarna?"

"My grandmother was born here,"  Lane said.

"Tikras!  My grandmother, too.  Maybe we are...um...cousin.  Come, cousins hug."  He wrapped us both in a bear hug.  "You come home, meet my mother and brothers?"

So we spend an hour having tea and very sweet pastries with Joku and his mother, two brothers, and two very hot friends, discussing Hollywood celebrities, Lane's Jewish heritage ("lots of Jews in Hollywood, no?"), and, obliquely, being gay:

Brother: "Do you have wives in California?"
Joku:  "Lane and Boomer don't want wives.  They are free."

Then it is time to drive back to Vilnius to catch our plane in the morning.

No sex, no gay people, that I know of.  But sometimes, meeting a local is enough.

 Especially a hot one.

          Decree from Pope Roger on the Williamson Affaire   
The Remnant linked today to an important announcement in the Observatore Silicano. From the Taj Mahoney in Los Angeles, Pope Roger (in a declaration signed by himself and two officials of the American Jewish Committee) decreed that Bp. Richard Williamson was banned from Catholic facilities in the Archdiocese. So what? I can't imagine any member of, or lay adherent to, the Society, much less Bishop Williamson, spending a whole lot of time on Pope Roger's property. The whole point and beauty of being SSPX in L.A. is that you can ignore Pope Roger!

But his Holiness further declared as follows:
"Holocaust deniers like Williamson will find no sympathetic ear or place of refuge in the Catholic Church, of which he is not—and may never become—a member," said a commentary signed jointly by Mahony, head of the nation's largest archdiocese, and two officials of the American Jewish Committee.

"The cardinal wishes to send a clear signal to the Jewish community that Williamson is not a member or even welcome in the Catholic Church until he renounces his views," said Tod Tamberg, spokesman for the archdiocese.

Hmm. So Bp. Williamson isn't a member of the Catholic Church and may never become one? It seems that crazy Kraut antipope Ratzinger has it all wrong, huh, your Holiness? We're so glad we have you could take time from your liturgical dancing at the annual Religious Education Conference (and your federal grand jury investigation) to declare what Bp. Williamson's status is and to do so jointly with two Jewish guys who themselves aren't members of the Catholic Church.

I guess this is just one of the next logical steps after setting up your own liturgical rules contrary to Roman authority...to declare for yourself who is and who isn't Catholic, even if you don't have territorial jurisdiction over such persons.

Then again, wouldn't it be cool if Bishops could do such things? I can't imagine it would be difficult to find some Bishop somewhere to declare Pope Roger to be forever and irreconcilably outside the Church.
          [Der LACKtastische Adventskalener] 3. Advent - Lieblingsweihnachtslacke.................   
..........................Hallo und Willkommen zum 3. Advent und Gemeinschaftssonntag des LACKtastischen Adventskalenders.


Nachdem es gestern Süßes bei Eliane gab, zeigen wir heute schon unsere Lieblingsweihnachtslacke. 

Wir hatten letztes Jahr schon das Thema Top 3 Weihnachtslacke und die Mädels fanden das Thema toll. Daher haben wir es erneut in den Kalender aufgenommen.

Ich habe ja letztes Jahr aus den Top 3 spontan eine Top 12 gemacht, in dem ich aus meinen Top 3 Weihnachtsfarben jeweils meine 4 liebsten Lacke gezeigt habe.

Einer davon war Leading Lady von Essie. In meinen Augen ein Klassiker.....Rot und Glitzer.....perfekt für die Weihnachtszeit.

Lackiert habe ich 3 Schichten auf meiner neuen Peel Off Base von UNT. Noch trage ich den Lack und bin echt gespannt, wie die Entfernung abläuft.

Und weil nur Lack für den Kalender doch ein bisschen öde war, kam noch ein Stamping mit dem heiligen Schorsch (aka Saint George von A England) drauf. Das Motiv ist, wie üblich, von der MoYou Festive 06.

Ich hatte erst Angst, dass Schorsch auf der dunklen Lady nicht so gut zur Geltung kommt, aber die Kombi war dann doch sehr hübsch.






Was sagt Ihr zu der Kombi? 

Und jetzt her mit Euren liebsten Weihnachtslacken :) Habt noch einen schönen 3. Advent ♥

Morgen öffnet sich das nächste Türchen bei Steffi.






          [Ankündigung] Der LACKtastische Adventskalender 2015..........

Und auch dieses Jahr war Myristine mir wieder eine riesige Hilfe und hat die tolle Image Map erstellt. Tausend Dank dafür ♥♥♥. Mit einem Klick auf den jeweiligen Tag kommt ihr dann zu dem entsprechenden Blog.




Folgende Mädels sind in diesem Jahr dabei


Ich freu mich riesig auf die Designs der Mädels und auf Eure und darauf, dass ich Euch mit meinen erfreue.

          Sterling Silver Pencil or Pen Charm School Teacher Writer 3D Solid 925 by jewelbecharmed   

3.95 USD

This sterling silver charm is in the shape of a pencil or pen. It would be a fun gift idea for a teacher, writer, artist, or anyone else who uses these writing implements in their work or hobby! The charm is solid and three-dimensional and it measures approximately 5mm tall and 21mm wide. This listing contains multiple photos and a detailed description (keep scrolling down for additional information!) If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Material: solid .925 sterling silver
Size (mm): 5mm tall and 21mm wide
Size (inches): just under 3/16" tall and a little less than 7/8" wide
Made in the USA

If you're looking for charms for a teacher, I carry a variety in my store:
www.etsy.com/shop/jewelbecharmed/search?search_query=teacher

Please note that the charm measurements do not include the length of any removable attachments. These will vary some, but a jump ring or split ring would add about 4mm (1/8") onto the overall length, a lobster clasp about 10mm (3/8"), and a large hole bead about 13mm (1/2").

---------------------------

Pick Clasp / Closure:
Select an attachment to go on this charm from the options provided. All are solid .925 sterling silver. If you're not sure which one you need, choose the jump ring. To see samples of the different attachments offered, please refer to the last photo in this listing.

JUMP RING (most popular): slide your charm onto a necklace chain or attach it to a traditional chain style charm bracelet with this option. A jump ring can be opened and closed with pliers. While you don't have to, you could have a jeweler permanently solder the jump ring shut after it's on your bracelet for maximum security. I use a sturdy 18 or 19 gauge jump ring, the 18 whenever possible and the 19 on charms with smaller loops (most common with miniature charms).

SPLIT RING: some people prefer a split ring when attaching a charm to a bracelet. A split ring is similar to a jump ring, but has a double loop like a keychain. I use a 6mm split ring on all charms that will fit one, and smaller rings when necessary.

LOBSTER CLASP: people who like to change their charms frequently may prefer this option, as you can quickly clip it on and off your jewelry. I use a small 9mm lobster clasp for these. As this is a smaller clasp, it will fit on many traditional chain style bracelets, but not on thick or European style chains.

PENDANT BAIL: adding a pendant bail to a charm gives it a nice, finished look if you intend to use the charm as a pendant on a necklace. A charm with a pendant bail attached will arrive ready to slide on a chain for a unique necklace! The bail (see example #6 in the last photo above) is a little less than 10mm tall and 4mm wide, the opening is about 2mm x 4mm, so it will fit on chains or cords measuring less than 2mm wide. The pendant bail may vary slightly from the one shown. Please note that miniature charms may have a miniature pendant bail attached instead (#5 in the photo above), which measures a bit smaller than the other bail but has a similar sized opening.

LARGE HOLE BEAD: these are necessary if you wish to add the charm to a European style charm bracelet, the other attachment options will not work with those. The bead has an inner diameter just under 6mm across and will fit on popular brands of European style bracelets and thicker chains or cord. You can pick the bead style you want from the following options, just leave me a note when you checkout with your choice (pictures of these can be found in the last photo above). If you don't indicate a preference, I will pick one for you.
A = Narrow plain
B = Narrow beaded
C = Curved inwards
D = Beaded (most popular)
E = Spiral
F = Textured inner band
G = Banded
H = Rectangles with square cutouts
I = Triangles with cutouts
J = Southwestern style cutout
K = Arrow / arrowhead cutout
L = Squared
M = Plain
N = Dotted

NONE (Add Your Own): no attachment will be added for you. To put the charm on your jewelry, you will need to add your own attachment later, such as a jump ring. The closed loop (usually at the very top) of a charm is permanent and will still be on the charm! If you're not sure what I'm referring to, look at the last picture in this listing. Each of the sample size charms have their permanent closed loop at the top, those will not be removed. In that same picture, you can see how the different attachment options need to be inserted through that loop, and only then can the charm be added to jewelry.

Quantity:
The price listed is for one (1) charm. To view current information on discounts available for larger orders, please refer to my store's Policy page:

Shipping:
Most items from my store, including charms, qualify for flat rate shipping. The shopping cart will automatically combine multiple purchases from my store into one order. My processing time to prepare this item for shipment may vary, please refer to the Shipping & Policies tab on this page for the "Ready to ship in" time frame. If you are in a rush and need a faster processing time than what is shown, please contact me in advance to find out whether an expedited processing time is possible. Once an order has been processed and shipped, standard shipping (USPS First Class mail) averages 2-5 business days for delivery within the U.S. While this timing is accurate for most orders, the U.S. post office does NOT guarantee delivery times for First Class or Priority mail, so neither can I. Due to recent restructuring within the postal system and closures of distribution centers, a small number of First Class and Priority packages have been experiencing shipping delays. If you need your package to arrive in a certain time frame, please consider upgrading your shipping. You may select an alternate shipping method in your shopping cart.

---------------------------

Additional information for international orders:
For international mail (including Canada), first class delivery is usually within 2-4 weeks. Please note that I have no control over whether your country may or may not charge you importation fees, duties or tariffs when they deliver your package and I am not responsible for those. I also will not falsify customs documents, so please do not ask. Expect shipping delays around the holidays! International mail can move very slowly the entire month of December and beyond.

---------------------------

Ordering gifts:
I can mail your purchase directly to the gift recipient if you wish. Leave me a note at checkout telling me it's a gift so I know not to include an invoice. Confirm the shipping address and give me your name or a gift message to include in the box, so the recipient knows who their gift is from! I do not offer gift wrapping services, but can pack your purchase in a little gift bag or paper gift box by request.

---------------------------

Interested in this charm on finished jewelry?
Do you love this charm, but prefer it on finished, ready-to-wear jewelry? I do sell other jewelry components separately, including bracelet and necklace chains. If you purchase any of those components and the charms to go on them, all you have to do is ask and I can put the finished jewelry together for you at no extra charge.
