Japanese artist behind ghastly creature in viral ‘Momo Challenge’ baffled by disturbing hoax.

BY ALEX MARTIN

The ghastly image of a goggle-eyed creature that triggered the so-called Momo Challenge — a viral social-media hoax terrifying children and parents alike — was born in a cluttered two-story studio on the outskirts of Tokyo.

The creator of the girl-like monster, Keisuke Aiso, seemed baffled by his newfound fame brought by the disturbing phenomenon amplified by unverified reports of children being enticed by the fictitious Momo into performing dangerous tasks involving self-harm, and even suicide.

“I have a small child myself so I can understand how parents are concerned,” the 43-year-old special-effects artist said.

“And while I’m glad that my work is being known around the globe, I’d like to ask whoever is behind the phenomenon to be more discreet in using the image,” he said, adding that the sculpture that sparked the craze no longer exists.

Aiso heads Link Factory, a small company based in Tachikawa, a suburban city in western Tokyo, that specializes in making props for television shows.

A longtime fan of the grotesque and the occult, he created the silicone sculpture that inspired Momo three years ago as an extension of a series of ghoulish artworks he calls the Grudge (onnen, in Japanese) Girls Collection.

Based on the ubume, a supernatural creature, or yokai, that appears in both Japanese and Chinese folklore as either a ghost of a woman who had died in pregnancy or a mysterious feathered creature that croaks like an infant and harms children, the 1-meter-tall figure with avian feet and human breasts was featured in an exhibition at Vanilla Gallery in Tokyo’s high-end Ginza shopping district in 2016.

His sculpture, however, attracted little attention at the time. It was relegated to being wrapped and stored outside his studio for nearly two years, left to the mercy of the elements. At one point, the sheets enveloping the figure unraveled, Aiso recalled.

“A neighbor taking a stroll saw the sculpture and said they almost had a heart attack,” he said.

By last year, the figure had been damaged beyond repair, and Aiso decided to do away with it, sending it off to the dumpster.

A week or two later, he began receiving hateful messages on Facebook telling him to be ashamed for creating such a hideous monster. Some even told him to die.

“I was confused about the commotion, but soon learned about the Momo Challenge,” he said.

This was around July 2018, when the phenomenon first began making the rounds on the internet.

Likened to the “Blue Whale Challenge,” a similarly unsubstantiated social media phenomenon dating from 2016 asking participants to engage in increasingly harmful conduct, the Momo Challenge was soon linked to numerous reports and rumors of youth suicides in South America, Europe, India, Mexico and the U.S., leading school administrators and police forces to issue warnings.

At the center of the online fiasco that fed on the anxieties of petrified adults was the haunting image of Aiso’s ubume. Unbeknownst to its creator, pictures of his artwork from the gallery display posted online had been cropped and used to propagate the myth.

The “challenge” is supposedly shared via social messaging services like WhatsApp, where the devilish face of Momo pops up alongside chilling messages and commands.

The mysterious trend once subsided, but was rekindled recently when rumors began surfacing in the U.K. that Momo was finding its way into children’s programs, including “Peppa Pig” and popular video games like “Fortnite” in videos posted to YouTube.

It also saw celebrities like Kim Kardashian take to Instagram, where she urged her 129 million followers to ask YouTube to take down the purportedly disturbing content.

Soon, Aiso began receiving a stream of hate mail again, as well as media interview requests.

YouTube, for its part, was quick to debunk the allegations that such videos had been posted to its service.

“We want to clear something up regarding the Momo Challenge: We’ve seen no recent evidence of videos promoting the Momo Challenge on YouTube,” it tweeted from its official account on Feb. 28. “Videos encouraging harmful and dangerous challenges are against our policies.”

Yuki Yoshida, a freelance writer and author of books on urban legends and unsolved mysteries, said the panic induced by the Momo Challenge may be a reflection of the fear harbored by the public toward social media as a hotbed of unmonitored violence and other unruly behavior.

But unlike last year, when the phenomenon was said to have manifested itself on social messaging services, he said recent reports appear to target video-streaming platforms like YouTube, perhaps taking its cue from “ElsaGate,” a term referring to outwardly child-friendly videos posted online that contain material inappropriate for kids.

“Interestingly, last year when the hoax made headlines overseas, it barely registered in Japan,” he said. “But this time around, it went viral as Japanese parents picked up on the scare. I speculate that unconfirmed reports saying Momo showed up on YouTube Kids, which many parents show their children, hit a nerve and rapidly spread safety concerns through parental networks.”

Yoshida also noted the eerie connection between the Momo Challenge, which supposedly preys on kids, and the ubume, from which Momo’s image is modeled after.

“Ubume is said to be a ghost of a woman who died during childbirth. Since it functions as a symbol of death during a process of paramount importance for the survival of all things living — giving birth — I consider the ubume to be the most important out of all Japanese yokai,” he said.

“Furthermore, I believe the primal fear it inspires is universal.”

Aiso, meanwhile, still doesn’t know what to make of the madness — the creator said he has received phone calls from overseas agents asking him to sell them the rights to Momo’s image for potential film productions.

“I just received a similar call from Mexico, and I’ve told all of them that I can cooperate,” he said. “So far none of them have gotten back to me.”

He recognized that there may be huge marketing potential in Momo, but isn’t enthusiastic in pursuing that, citing the sensitive nature of the topic that involves children and suicide.

“It would be terrible if I tried to monetize this,” he said, as a molded mask of Momo that his friend found and brought back as a souvenir from Mexico’s Day of the Dead festivities sat on his desk.

And while Aiso’s original ubume is gone, it could easily be reproduced. The plaster casts used to make the now-iconic figure are lying around somewhere among the tons of garbage piled behind his workshop, he said.

Still, that may be a bridge too far.

“I’ve received so many inquiries about this, but strangely no one has shown interest in wanting the actual sculpture.”

BurneyRelief.Med

The Burney Relief (named for the antiquities dealer who owned it in 1935) is one of the most important works of art from the Ancient Near East. This terracotta plaque (37 cm wide by 49.5 cm high) is of undoubted authenticity and has been dated by the British Museum to 1800 B.C. According to the British Museum web site it “equals the Stele of Hammurabi in quality of execution but surpasses it in iconographical quality.”

The Burney Relief : Innana, Ishtar, or Lilith?

analogicalplanet.com

One cannot escape the sense of contradiction expressed in this image of a goddess. At first glance one sees a beautiful young goddess, but as the eye follows down the realistic figure, the raptorial talons shock the imagination. This is no goddess! This is some sort of demon, perhaps a harpy. However, the serenity of the face and the symmetry of the posture are dignified in their composure. The body of the goddess is so naturalistic it could have been modeled from life, yet the owls are stilted in their stylization. The accentuated femininity of the figure suggests an earthy sexuality, but the rod and ring held above either shoulder are geometric abstractions and symbolic of universal laws.

The mix of styles and symbols suggests a hybrid divinity, a link between ancient archetypes and more recent devolutions. According to Baring and Cashford (The Myth of the Goddess1991) it is probable that the plaque represents “Innana in her role as the goddess of sky, earth and underworld, Queen of the Great Above and the Great Below.” They go on to explain that
“The Sumerian word for owl is ninna and the name Nin-ninna given to the goddess in her owl form meant ‘Divine Lady Owl’. The ancient texts also give the Akkadian word kilili for Nin-ninna, and this name was one shared by Innana and Ishtar. (Perhaps kilili is the original derivation of Lilith, who, much later, in biblical times, is called ‘night-owl or screech-owl’.”

They also note a possible connection to very ancient paleolithic (approximately 20,000 B.C.) symbols of the bird goddess.

Rafael Patai (The Hebrew Goddess 3rd ed. 1990) relates that in the Sumerian poem Gilgamesh and the Huluppu Tree, a she-demon named Lilith built her house in the Huluppu tree on the banks of the Euphrates before being routed by Gilgamesh. Patai then describes the Burney plaque:
“A Babylonian terra-cotta relief, roughly contemporary with the above poem, shows in what form Lilith was believed to appear to human eyes. She is slender, well shaped, beautiful and nude, with wings and owl-feet. She stands erect on two reclining lions which are turned away from each other and are flanked by owls. On her head she wears a cap embellished by several pairs of horns. In her hands she holds a ring and rod combination. Evidently this is no longer a lowly she-demon, but a goddess who tames wild beasts and, as shown by the owls on the reliefs, rules by night.”

Patai asserts that Ishtar is the direct descendent of the Sumerian Innana. The Babylonian Ishtar emphasizes the promiscuity of a divine harlot rather than the virginal queenship of Innana. So much so that when Ishtar descended to the Nether world (an Akkadian myth parallel to the Descent of Innana), “neither man nor beast copulated; when she emerged, all of them were again seized by sexual desire.”

Wolkstein and Kramer (Innana: Queen of Heaven and Earth 1983) present a psychological comparison of Lilith and Innana in a discussion of Ereshkigal, goddess of the Underworld:
“Ereshkigal, the neglected side of Innana, has certain qualities that are similar to Lilith’s. Both are connected to the nightime aspects of the feminine- the powerful, raging sexuality and the deep wounds accumulated from life’s rejections- which seek solace in physical union only. Lilith usually flees from rejections; Ereshkigal withdraws ‘underground.’ In ‘The Huluppu-Tree,’ when Lilith could not have her own way, she resentfully and destructively smashed her own home. The powerful Lilith of Innana’s adolescent days had to be sent away so Innana’s life-exploring talents could be developed. But now that Innana has become queen of her city, wife to her beloved, mother to her children, she is more able to face what she has neglected: the instinctual, wounded, frightened parts of herself…”

Let us quote directly from Wolkstein and Kramer’s translation of the Sumerian poem, The Descent of Innana, to get a picture of Innana herself as she enters the Underworld carying the me’s, archetypal forms of personal and social life:

Volvo To Electronically Restrict Speed Across Its Fleet.

Updated: Thursday, March 7, 2019, 14:11 [IST

Volvo aims to achieve “no fatalities” as part of its Vision 2020. The Swedish automaker will restrict top speed on all its civilian cars starting next year. As part of its enhanced safety drive, Volvo will electronically limit the top speed to 180kmph on all its vehicles. They aim for no one to be killed or seriously injured in Volvo cars.
Hakan Samuelsson, President and Chief Executive, Volvo Cars, stated, “Volvo is a leader in safety: we always have been and we always will be. Because of our research we know where the problem areas are when it comes to ending serious injuries and fatalities in our cars. And while a speed limitation is not a cure-all, it’s worth doing if we can even save one life. We want to start a conversation about whether car makers have the right or maybe even an obligation to install technology in cars that change their driver’s behaviour, to tackle things like speeding, intoxication or distraction. We don’t have a firm answer to this question, but believe we should take leadership in the discussion and be a pioneer.”
new-2020-volvo-xc90-upper-view-1551881024
Volvo says the speed limit is necessary because existing active and passive safety features in most cars are unable to prevent fatalities and severe injuries above a certain seed limit. This is also reason why countries set speed limits and restrictions. However, speeding is common practice and the leading cause of road fatalities.

Volvo cars also plans to address two more problems that result in accidents. One is drivers under thee influence of alcohol and or drugs, and the other is distracted drivers. They plan to present some ideas at a safety event at Sweden on March 20, 2019.
Volvo’s cars will include new technology that will monitor the vehicle and also driver behaviour. They’re working on a separate system that will use smart speed control and geofencing technologies to automatically restrict speeds around schools and hospitals.

Volvo also said that none of their police cars will have the 180kmph speed restrictions.

Thoughts About Electronic Speed Restrictions On Volvo Cars.

We think this is a fantastic idea. However, for India, 180kmph is still over the top. Again, watching these technologies work in real time will be interesting.

House Democrats Pass Gun Control Legislation While Media Focuses On Michael Cohen Testimony.

Federal Gun Control is on the Move! Tell Your Senators to Oppose H.R.8, S.42 and H.R. 1112!

nraila.org
FRIDAY, MARCH 1, 2019

Anti-gun Democrats made good on their promises this week, advancing two extreme gun control bills through the U.S. House of Representatives.

While there remains a slim pro-gun majority in the upper chamber, your U.S. Senators need to hear from you NOW to ensure the Second Amendment firewall stays intact and stops this legislation in its tracks.

NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox condemned the measures as a direct attack on Second Amendment rights, explaining that they could “make criminals out of law-abiding Americans” and “make it harder for good people to defend themselves and their families.” He also noted they “won’t prevent criminals from committing murder” and could trap even legally eligible firearm purchasers “in an endless loop of delays.”

The first of the bills to pass was H.R. 8, which proponents falsely portray as a “universal” background check bill. Supporters of the bill want Americans to believe that criminals who currently obtain firearms through illegal markets and straw purchasers will somehow stop when all private transfers are banned.

There is, of course, no evidence or logic to support that.

What is true, however, is that H.R. 8 would make innocent conduct like handing over a shotgun to a neighbor so he could borrow it for skeet shooting a federal crime.

The other bill, H.R. 1112, seeks to do away with a critical provision of federal law that prevents the FBI from effectively vetoing retail gun purchases by indefinitely delaying firearm background checks.

The whole point of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) was to quickly and accurately screen out retail firearm purchasers who have disqualifying criminal convictions or adjudications.

The system, however, has largely failed to deliver on its promises, either by stopping the perpetrators of America’s most infamous firearm-related crimes or by protecting the rights of those who are unjustly delayed or denied a firearm purchase because of bureaucratic missteps like mistaken identity. People who are incorrectly delayed or denied currently face years-long waits for corrective action by the FBI.

And even those who the system correctly turns away as disqualified are almost never subject to federal prosecution for attempting illegally to obtain guns.

Under current law, a licensed dealer can (but is not required to) release a firearm to a purchaser three business days after initiating the mandatory NICS check if the FBI has failed to render a decision on the check.

H.R. 1112 seeks to make NICS even more burdensome and intrusive by abolishing this safety valve and establishing a new three-step procedure for unresolved NICS checks.

First, the dealer would have to wait 10 business days after the NICS check is initiated for a response from the FBI.

If the FBI did not resolve the check in that timeframe, the purchaser could submit a formal petition asking for a decision.

If the FBI still did not render a decision, the dealer would have to wait a minimum of 10 additional business days before deciding whether or not to transfer the gun.

But as we’ve explained elsewhere, the original NICS check might well expire before this three-step process is complete, sending the purchaser back into the same loop of waiting, perhaps again and again.

Indeed, H.R. 1112’s author and primary sponsor has characterized the bill as establishing a “cooling-off period” for gun purchases, while dismissing any “redeeming value” of allowing guns to be purchased without a mandatory delay.

Please contact your Senators TODAY and tell them to oppose H.R. 8, S. 42 and H.R. 1112. You can use this link to send them an email or call the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121.

Gun control is moving on Capitol Hill!

Maryland Democratic Party Secretary Labels Gun Rights Activists “Terrorists,” Calls For Doxing.

FRIDAY, MARCH 8, 2019

In addition to the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, the Bill of Rights protects Americans from government action “abridging the freedom of speech” and ensures “the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” Last week, Maryland Democratic Party Secretary Robbie Leonard offered further evidence that anti-gun advocates are so intent on attacking the Second Amendment that they are willing to destroy the rest of the Bill of Rights along with it.

On February 25, the Maryland House of Delegates Judiciary Committee held a public hearing on several gun control measures. The various gun control proposals included a measure to further criminalize the private transfer of certain firearms, new restrictions on commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms, and new licensing requirements to purchase a rifle or shotgun.

NRA encouraged our members and other Second Amendment supporters to attend this hearing in order to voice their opposition to the proposed restrictions. Many Maryland gun owners heeded the call and exercised their First Amendment right to assemble and petition their government.

In doing so, some gun rights supporters wore t-shirts with the words “We Will Not Comply.” The shirts conveyed a powerful message of civil disobedience, making clear that those gun owners would refuse to obey further infringements on their Constitutional rights. The simple message also garnered the support of Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis.

This constitutionally-protected message of resistance proved too much for Leonard. The Maryland Democratic Party Secretary took to social media to express his outrage that these gun owners would express such defiance to the gun control agenda.

According to a local news source, Leonard posted to Facebook, “I hope the FBI runs the name of every witness who is wearing a t-shirt that says ‘We Will Not Comply.’ They’re a bunch of terrorists in the making.” In another missive, Leonard posted photos from the hearing along with the message “Time to dox some homegrown terrorists.” For those unfamiliar with the term, “doxing” is an intimidation tactic whereby someone makes another person’s private or identifying information available to the public with the intent prompt a harassment campaign against them.

The bizarre posts offer a glimpse into the fevered mind of the gun control advocate. Revealing a severe dearth of knowledge regarding the Bill of Rights, in Leonard’s view, federal law enforcement should be employed to intimidate his political enemies for conduct expressly protected under the First Amendment. Further, Leonard seems to have little understanding of the structure of American governance. The Maryland Democratic Party Secretary is seeking to marshal the federal government to tamp down local grassroots opposition to proposed state laws of the type that federal legislators have repeatedly rejected.

As pointed out by some astute observers, Maryland and other states have criminal laws that can be used against those who engage in doxing. A 2017 item on doxing published in the Fordham Law Review noted, “Maryland Criminal Code section 3-803 prohibits an intentional, malicious course of conduct that constitutes harassment, as long as the actor has received a reasonable warning or request to stop by or on behalf of the subject.” Maryland Criminal Code Section 3-805, explicitly outlaws this conduct when it takes place “through the use of electronic communication.” Given the strong objection Leonard’s conduct garnered, it is likely that the secretary has by now received that “reasonable warning.”

Even more than a message of civil disobedience, “We Will Not Comply” is a recognition of reality.

In Connecticut, a 2013 law required residents to register certain types of semiautomatic firearms, and individual magazines with a capacity greater than 10, by January 1, 2014. Out of an estimated several hundred thousand guns and 2.4 million magazines that were required to be registered, by the deadline Connecticut gun owners had registered 50,016 firearms and a mere 38,290 magazines.

In 1989, California enacted a law requiring registration of certain semi-automatic firearms. According to a February 17, 1992 Los Angeles Times article, in the years following enactment only 46,062 semi-autos were registered. The article went on to note, “The state Department of Justice has estimated there are 200,000 to 300,000. Others have calculated as many as 450,000 to 600,000.”

Results for New Jersey’s semi-auto ban were similar. An April 17, 1992 New York Times article titled, “Owners of Assault Guns Slow to Obey Law,” noted, “In New Jersey, which enacted an assault weapon ban in 1990, 2,000 weapons have been surrendered, made inoperable or registered as collectors’ items, according to the State Police. The state Attorney General’s office estimates that there are between 20,000 and 50,000 assault weapons in New Jersey.”

As for laws that criminalize the private transfer of firearms, the Colorado experience suggests similar resistance.

In 2018, Robbie Leonard ran an unsuccessful campaign for Maryland State Senate. Responding to a Baltimore Sun candidate questionnaire, Leonard noted that he taught remedial math courses at the Community College of Baltimore County. Given that the University of Baltimore School of Law, J.D. appears ignorant as to the Bill of Rights, he would do well to avail himself of a remedial course in U.S. civics.

Satan Finally Found His Political Party—The Democrats!

The Devil is Using the Democratic Party to Destroy America

Politics and the Culture Wars

The Devil is Using the Democratic Party to Destroy America
By Larry Tomczak

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour”: (1Pet. 5:8-9).

I lived in the DC area for 24 years, worked directly across from the White House and taught the Bible weekly to 2000 young people 10 minutes away. Positioned in the heart of the Capital, we prayed for the government each meeting (1Tim.2:1-4) convinced of our call to “…stand against the schemes of the devil. “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.””For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”(Eph. 6:11-12). On our watch we witnessed the exposure and removal of a President and Vice-President for the first time in U.S. history.

The time has come to acknowledge spiritual realities: the devil is using the Democratic Party to try to destroy America. If we don’t awaken, our children will soon awaken in a nation unrecognizable to us today.

Thanking the Devil.

Actor Christian Bale, a Democrat activist and stepson of feminist Gloria Steinem, recently gave thanks to Satan for helping him win his Golden Globe award for his role in Vice destroying the reputation of former Vice-President Dick Cheney. In C.S. Lewis’s classic Screwtape Letters, novice demon “Wormwood” likewise thanked his Satanic life coach for teaching him how to deceive unsuspecting humans.

His diabolical advice:

“… the safest road to hell is the gradual one-the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts…”

While there is no perfect Party or politician, God-fearing Americans are asking if the time has come to say “Sayonara” to the Democratic Party as it morphs into a European secularist and socialistic entity. It has become increasingly leftist and anti-capitalist in its pursuit of “social justice” and “income equality.” It’s not the “fringe” or a few factions who believe they must aggressively remove “outdated” policies and “unenlightened” politicians hindering those they deem as the “disadvantaged”.

They believe man is not sinful but basically good and by wealth distribution, freedom from repressive religion and by “progressive” education, we’ll enjoy utopia. They dismiss the wisdom of Nobel laureate Frederick Hayek, author of The Fatal Conceit, “The curious task of economics is to demonstrate to man how little they really know about what they imagine they can design.”

Recall the sincere but misguided socialist experiment of Governor William Bradford with the Pilgrims in pooling their harvest together but discovering there were slackers trying to live off the labors of others. He quickly exposed their laziness and apportioned each a plot of land to work and reap the fruit of his individual labor. This rescued them and incentivized them resulting in productivity and success.
Exposing Dangerous Delusion

The Democratic Party’s socialistic economic initiatives are taking root especially among millennials. They’re woefully uneducated on its tenets and the devastation it has brought hundreds of millions in history. They’re seduced by lofty yet unrealistic promises and lured by charismatic politicians often going unchallenged by the sympathetic anti-Trump media.

A current example is their “Green New Deal”:

1. Full employment and if you dislike your job you depart and the government gets you another.
2. You cannot be fired.
3. Free healthcare
4. Free tuition from pre-K through college
5. Affordable housing for all with rent control and inability to be evicted! This will fix “climate problems” and income inequalities they promise.

New York Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez is the Party’s new “star” who’s a symbol and proponent of Democratic Socialism. She told 60 Minutes she was a “radical”; “advocated free healthcare for everyone”; and proposed a “top tax rate of 70% like the U.K. (falsehood – it’s 45%), Finland or Sweden” (miniscule and easily manageable populations of 5 and 10 million compared to our 350 million). Our already $22 trillion debt would quickly explode from this delusional scheme, devastating millions, collapse our economy and result in rioting like in Venezuela.

Do you know that in his Communist Manifesto Karl Marx said the “progressive income tax” imposed by the governing elite was a “despotic inroad on the rights of property” requiring the Communist revolution?

Are you ready for the government to confiscate your savings and property upon death instead of you bequeathing them to your family?

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, a Communist, has announced the availability of total healthcare – primary, specialty, pediatric, OBGYN, geriatric and mental – for all 9.5 million residents including 300,000 illegal immigrants, 600,000 uninsured and anyone with pre-existing conditions. Simply call a 311 number. He proposes the government assume authority over everyone’s property; universal free pre-K childcare and marijuana legalization. Additionally, Governor Cuomo and Hillary Clinton propose the “Reproductive Health Act” be enacted immediately to codify abortion guaranteed up until birth.

Presidential hopefuls Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, are both avowed socialists. California Senator Kamala Harris is announcing her candidacy having gained notoriety for arrogant behavior at the Kavanaugh hearing along with forcefully assaulting a judicial nominee simply because he’s a member of the 2-million strong,136-year-old Catholic “Knights of Columbus”.
Once Marginal, Now Mainstream

My parents were Democrats and I grew up as a boy having a positive view of Presidents Truman and Kennedy. I was shocked and saddened when I later discovered the history of the Democratic Party as the Party of slavery, secession and segregation. As I’ve watched the ascent of extremism, socialism and godless secularism in their ranks, I’m alarmed with millions of patriotic Americans at the trajectory of their politicians, policies and platform attractive on the surface but dangerous in their outworking.

House Speaker Pelosi stated in USA Today (1/3/19) the top two “generational challenges of our time are reducing income disparity and combating the climate crises.” While all of us should strive to be good stewards of the environment, we must be discerning not to succumb to hysteria not based on scientific empirical evidence but much from Al Gore’s theories and disproven myths catapulting him to multimillionaire status.

21 Areas Reveal Democratic Party Positions

1. Radical redistribution of wealth
2. Aggressive climate change initiatives
3. Complete takeover of healthcare by federal government plus inclusion of all illegal immigrants
4. Open immigration policy with full acceptance of all children and relatives; no border “walls”, entrance requirements, E-verify or penalties for those refusing deportation; disregarding the rule of law and full support for “sanctuary cities”; neglecting national security and allowing George Soros funded anarchy to “crash” our immigration system
5. Government control over corporate profits
6. Progressive taxes on the upper middle class and above
7. Legalization of recreational marijuana
8. Implementation of comprehensive LGBTQ agenda – including indoctrination of children in schools, transgender initiatives, gender reassignment surgery and removal of any “sexual discrimination” in the workplace and schools, disregarding conscience objections
9. Taxpayer abortion-on-demand until birth with full-funding of Planned Parenthood
10. Major defense spending cuts with money redistributed to entitlements
11. Comprehensive gun control
12. Liberal not originalist judges on the Supreme Court and Federal courts
13. Alignment and support for radical feminist agenda and marches
14. Increased censorship of “hateful” conservative thought on social media
15. Liberalized voting standards to include fraudulent practices and everyone the Party deems as “disenfranchised”.
16. Partnership with Palestinians
17. Alignment with United Nations and European Union trans-nationalism initiatives promoting “One World” globalism, rather than nationalism with international cooperation
18. Euthanasia/Physician-assisted suicide
19. Taxpayer-funded childcare and college tuition
20. Elimination of the Electoral College
21. Reestablishing of Iranian “nuclear deal” alongside increased protection for Islamic “rights” in America and abroad at the expense of Israel’s safety
Warning and Wake Up Call

Without a desperately needed spiritual awakening, America is on a dangerous slope. Millions must recognize how the enemy is using the Democratic Party with its seductive, totally unrealistic, godless vision for America. It is totally foreign to that of our Founding Fathers and 242-year heritage.

The brutal reality is that the Democratic Party is not the one of even a generation ago. It has become radicalized; hostile to biblical values and religious freedoms; disrespectful to individuals and institutions; unashamed in using profanities and employing intimidation in the media and public square; increasingly irrational, lawless, dishonest, hypocritical, corrupt, and mean-spirited (remember the Brett Kavanaugh hearing?); and finally, flippant in dismissing “due process” and our two foundational societal pillars of the sanctity of human life alongside the sanctity of man and woman marriage.

Here’s the deal: as we’ve watched the difficult-to-believe destruction of the 108-year-old Boy Scouts of America because they capitulated to forces the Democratic Party championed, let us consecrate ourselves at this defining time to intercession, gospel proclamation, “salt and light” activism and courageous, uncompromising obedience to God. Extraordinary circumstances require extraordinary measures. “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” (2 Cor. 6:17-18).

The devil is a defeated foe and no matter how destructive his influence is at this critical time, remember:”The earth is the LORD’S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.” (Ps. 24:1)

May God bless the United States of America as we pray and communicate we must return to Him and His ways upon which our nation was founded and as a result is the most blessed and prosperous nation on earth.

Possible Guardian Angel Caught On Video Saves Man.

CoastToCoastAm.com

By Tim Binnall

A shopkeeper in Turkey was left mystified after a tap on his shoulder from a mysterious stranger seemingly saved him from being seriously injured by a passing truck. According to a local media report, the eerie encounter took place in the city of Adana as Serdar Binici’yi was preparing to close his store for the night. However, his normal routine of picking up sale items from outside the shop was decidedly different this time around thanks to a truly strange series of events.

In a video captured by a nearby security camera, an unidentified man can be seen walking down the road toward Binici’yi as he stands in front of his store. When the stranger reaches the shopkeeper, he nonchalantly reaches over, taps him on the shoulder, and keeps walking. Wondering who just touched him, Binici’yi turns around, but only sees a white van rumbling down the street. Suddenly, from the back of the vehicle, a rather sizeable metal grate swings around and narrowly misses the shaken shopkeeper, who ducks at the last minute to avoid being struck.

Upon regaining his bearings, Binici’yi looks up and down the road, ostensibly trying to figure out who had alerted him to the imminent danger, yet there is no one to be found. It was only later, when he looked at the CCTV video of the incident, did the shopkeeper fully comprehend how miraculous the encounter had been. According to Binici’yi, the driver of the van did return to the scene to apologize for nearly smashing into him, but the stranger who tapped his shoulder simply vanished.

While the strange scene is likely just a matter of fortuitous timing, some observers have suggested that Binici’yi may have actually been saved by an angelic being. They point to the casual nature in which the man approached the shopkeeper and how the stranger seemingly had no idea that the van with the loose grate was en route towards them, yet somehow knew to warn Binici’yi. What’s your take on the odd encounter? Was it a case of divine intervention or merely a spooky coincidence? Weigh in with your thoughts at the Coast to Coast AM Facebook page.

Bibles And Crosses Found Unscathed In Church Destroyed By Massive Fire.

Firefighters in West Virginia surveying the damage from an inferno that had gutted a church over the weekend were astounded when they discovered that a bevy of Bibles and crosses had somehow survived the conflagration unscathed. The remarkable find was reportedly made early Sunday morning after the Coal City Fire Department helped to battle a blaze that had engulfed the Freedom Ministries Church in the community of Greenview.

Upon entering the building, the team of rescue workers was stunned to see that every Bible inside the church had apparently made it through the harrowing ordeal undamaged. Posting pictures of the amazing sight to Facebook, the department noted that the fire had, at one point, been so hot that they were actually forced to pull personnel from the building for their safety. The temperatures were so extreme, they explained, that everything inside should have been reduced to ashes.

However, they marveled “not a single Bible was burned” and also revealed that none of the crosses inside the church fell victim to the blaze either. While skeptical observers may offer a prosaic explanation for the odd nature in which the objects survived the fire, but one can’t help but notice that the case in West Virginia is merely the latest in a series of eerily similar events involving religious items surviving massive infernos, including a painting of Jesus at a Massachusetts church, a trio of icons in Serbia, and a number of statues which were found intact after wildfires swept through Tennessee.
