  • Carra Crouch, now 24, was awarded $2million in damages on Monday
  • She is the granddaughter of Trinity Broadcasting founders Jan and Paul Crouch
  • Carra filed a lawsuit five years ago claiming she was assaulted when she was 13 by a 30-year-old Trinity employee in an Atlanta hotel room in 2006
  • She claims when she reported it to her grandmother Jan, the employee was fired and the assault kept quiet 
  • Carra filed the lawsuit before Jan and Paul died in 2016 and 2013 respectively

Jan and her husband Paul made millions through their pioneering religious shows on the Trinity Broadcasting Network. Their granddaughter says she was attacked by someone who worked for the company but that neither did anything because they didn't want the bad press

Jan and her husband Paul made millions through their pioneering religious shows on the Trinity Broadcasting Network. Their granddaughter says she was attacked by someone who worked for the company but that neither did anything because they didn’t want the bad press

Trinity attorney Michael King said after the verdict that the organization disagrees with the ruling and plans to appeal.

Paul and Jan Crouch both died since the lawsuit was filed five years ago. They denied the allegations when the lawsuit was first filed.

Both sides agree that during Trinity Broadcasting’s 2006 ‘Praise-a-Thon’ fundraiser, Carra and the man smoked a cigarette together, drank alcohol together, and watched a movie on a bed in her room.

But Carra and her attorneys allege the man fondled her, tried to kiss her, and gave her a glass of water that she believed was laced with a drug. She suspected she had been raped when she awoke.

The lawsuit stated that when Carra reported the incident to her grandmother back in California, Jan berated her and screamed ‘it’s your fault’.

The lawsuit said that as an ordained minister, Jan was required to report potential sexual abuse to authorities.

‘A Roman Catholic nun from Japan has been arrested and charged on suspicion of helping priests sexually abuse children at a school for youths with hearing disabilities in Argentina.

Kosaka Kumiko, 42, was charged with helping the priests with anal and vaginal rapes, fondling and oral sex, which were allegedly committed in the bathrooms, dormitories, garden and a basement at the school in Lujan de Cuyo, a city about 620 miles northwest of Buenos Aires.

The case against Kumiko began after a former student accused her of making her wear a diaper to cover up a hemorrhage after she was allegedly raped by priest Horacio Corbacho.

‘I am innocent,’ she told judicial officials, who ordered her to be taken into custody at a local women’s prison while detectives investigate the alleged crimes.’

No matter whom we elect, we get the same thing:

Endless war. Terror. Gender bending. Why is this?
 
Our “leaders” are all Rothschild flunkies. The Rothschilds are cabalists (Satanists.) 
They have a monopoly over the creation of the medium of exchange, credit  & currency. They produce these coupons from nothing, something our government could do itself, interest-and-debt-free. Alas, our “money” is just chips in their digital casino. They can
void these chips any time they want. 
 

Their agenda is to protect their money monopoly by extending it into a monopoly over everything – power, knowledge, culture, religion — by reengineering humanity to serve them. This requires the breakdown of nation, race, religion (God) and family (gender).  This is why Western nations are flooded by migrants. Why Communist and LGBT values are foisted on children. Why universities have been neutered. Why corporations and banks promote migration and homosexuality.  Why the foreign policy of the West is bent on destroying any resistance (Russia, Syria, Yemen, Iran, Korea.) Society is satanically possessed. Freemasonry and organized Jewry are their instruments. Why do so few “pundits”  get this? The process of human reengineering has advanced to the point where society is an accomplice in its own destruction.

‘Pope Francis’ unshakeable belief in the power of mercy has been called into question after a previously-convicted pedophile priest struck again, around two years after the Pontiff reduced sanctions against child-abusing clergy, according to a report by AP.

The case of Rev. Mauro Inzoli, an Italian priest who received church clemency but was later convicted for abusing children, has turned the spotlight back on the sins of the Catholic Church. The report has revealed that Inzoli is now facing a second church trial after new evidence emerged against him.

Inzoli was found guilty of abusing young boys by a 2012 Vatican investigation and was ordered to be defrocked.

He appealed his punishment and, in 2014, Pope Francis overruled the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and granted clemency, reducing the priest’s penalty to a lifetime of prayer.’

Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu is in danger of being brought down, possibly soon, over what initially appears to be little more than an imprudent taste for Cuban cigars and pink champagne.

In truth, however, the allegations ensnaring Netanyahu reveal far more than his personal flaws or an infatuation with the high life. They shine a rare light on the corrupt nexus between Israel’s business, political and media worlds, compounded by the perverse influence of overseas Jewish money.

‘The Kingdom of Swaziland in southern Africa has ordered schools across the country to teach only Christianity, a move censured by opponents as inciting anti-Muslim bigotry.

The order went into effect on Tuesday as the new academic year began in Swaziland and officials announced that the old textbooks would be replaced with new ones that will only mention the Bible.

The schools were also instructed to submit a list of “qualified religious studies teachers ahead of the start of term,” AFP reported.

A top education ministry official, identified in the report as Pat Muir, said primary and high schools would not offer other religions.’

Israel’s Channel 2’s transmission was disrupted after hackers gained access to TV satellites on Tuesday night.

The hack allegedly took place in protest of a controversial bill that limits the volume of the ‘Adhan’ from mosques in Israel.’

Class conflict cannot exist in a society without classes, which is what we’re told we have as citizens of the world’s greatest democracy, its most exceptional nation, and other political-religious beliefs to accompany the big economic one about our magnificent free market where nothing is free.

We used to have a middle class and there is an upper middle class living in luxury towers and dining at fine restaurants, and we certainly have poor and rich people, but that doesn’t make us a class society. Does it? Many foreigners think Americans have no class at all but they may be giving the word another meaning. When it comes to economic stratification and wealth inequality, true believers in an alleged democracy that makes us all equal will swear that despite differences in personal bankrolls, by george we are the same in having free choice.

Especially in that fantastic free market where rich or poor, the same products are available to all of us if we just choose them.

Which is why poor people can live in gated communities, penthouses, large estates and lavish mansions, and rich folks can live in slums, housing projects, under freeways and on the street. It’s completely up to them and the educated choices they make at that free market where nothing is free. That’s why some of us eat gourmet as opposed to junk food, ride limos as opposed to bikes, and why some of us visit low-end emergency rooms for common illness while others visit high-end specialists for uncommon ills. Free choice, right?

If you believe any of that it’s amazing you’ve been able to read this far since you either dropped out of elementary school in fourth grade, or you’re employed by the ruling rich as a professional member of their body, mind and soul servant class. Even if you are a member of both those groups, joining with your fellow citizens to create real democracy would bring about a much better world than the one we live in, but if you really believe continued worship of minority wealth is what’s best for us all, you are anti-democratic and possibly fascist no matter how perversely patriotic you may think yourself for standing for the national anthem after lying about your taxes, cheating at your business, or discriminating against other alleged minorities as alienated as you are.

Obedience to symbols can be a sincere and heartfelt behavior but when it’s accompanied by hateful bigotry that would embarrass Nazis it’s a meal to make jackals and hyenas vomit. And hungry people cannot eat symbols of food, nor can homeless people reside in symbolic housing. But symbol worship is another religious observance forced upon good people in hopes that they won’t notice the material ugliness those symbols too often cover for.

The growing pro-democracy movement is learning that the way ruling class minority control of everything is maintained is by reducing the majority to identity group minorities and having them battle over getting a part of the professional class semi-luxury available by obeying the rules of the market religion and thus having some special members of their groups prayers answered by being allowed entry into that privileged group of servants. Unfortunately, it still works for many who not only stand for the anthem but symbolically bend over for their rulers at the same time.

While some of us are terrorized by racism, Trump, staggering debt, Trump, a warfare state, Putin, unemployment, Trump, climate change, Assad, poverty, Trump and a host of other real and imagined menaces, especially the one with which Consciousness Control is obsessing much of the nation, Donald Trump, a host of all too real problems are depicted as only those of certain groups, certainly not all of us. Alleged minorities of beings are Balkanized into believing ourselves separate ethnic-racial-religious-cultural-gender identities which somehow categorize us as different in human substance. Once we are beaten into mental submission that accepts our minority status, the rest is easy for our rulers.

While recent stories of a seemingly disgusting trend towards rape of unconscious women are shocking, more of us will die in automobile crashes and the fatalities will not be sexually segregated or only befall minority subsets of the nation. Yet we are not terrified by media harping on that story about a menace that kills more than thirty thousand americans every year, but rather a disgusting crime which, thankfully, the overwhelming majority of women will never suffer. Why are some menaces hyped to the point of giving us nightmares even if the odds of our enduring them are tiny, while other, real dangers are hardly spoken of at all? Could the fact that automobiles, fossil fuels, health insurance, and related businesses are multi billion dollar profit makers have something to do with it? Duh?

All of us are endangered by the intellectual rape of an unconscious public kept “drugged with religion and sex and tv” according to John Lennon in song back in the sixties. What might John be singing now, with 24-hour cable news mind assaults convincing us that perpetual war is normal, online anti-social media lynch squads aroused over almost anything, narrower minded and louder than ever pundit pinheads, richer and more powerful than ever big Pharma joining the orgy of weapons, drugs, gossip, scandal and the further reduction of passive citizens in an idealized democracy into a fanatic mob of zombie consumers at a realized dystopian mall?

Many of us are so mentally abused by the lies of ruling power that we believe only the most far fetched tales of plots seemingly conducted by forces of evil invisible to all but the anointed who can spot false flags a mile away but are blind to political economics staring them in the face. Reduced to an endless mob of consumers buying bullets, cosmetics, pizza, fashion, beer or pet food, and a parade of proles carrying plastic bags filled with merchandise, garbage or dog poop, most of us are innocently swept up in whatever trend of the moment comes via our networks of believability. And all those networks are directly or indirectly owned by the same financial powers which have nothing to do with fantastic schemes or the illuminati but everything to do with what is quite visible, material and threatens the world we all live in whether compelled to wave fabric painted red white and blue or coerced to carry truly false banners denoting a sub-human status forced upon us as alleged minorities.

The real and most threatening minority is that of the relative handful of billionaires – just over 400 in America – whose domination of the global economy is growing more critical and dangerous as unemployment, poverty and mass murder is suffered by more people while prosperity is enjoyed by a much smaller upper-middle class of servants clinging to the belief that it’s status not only reflects a general condition, but is entirely justified by the rules and regulations of the religious economy; the alleged free market under the control and dominance of a tiny minority growing obscenely richer by the day as a global majority carries the massive public loss caused by their private profits. How can they get away with this?

The tactic of dividing and conquering the opposition is among the oldest known to minority power, but in the age of instant electronic communication, it has become a tool for wielding more power than ever in the past. Royalty, feudal lords, slave owners and other deities of bygone eras would have been orgasmic if they could have had such instantaneous control over what reached the minds of their vassals, peasants, slaves and armies. While the digital age has made possible more direct communication among the people than was ever imaginable before, it has also placed incredible power of consciousness control and mind management in the hands of ruling classes never before as rich, dominant or dangerous.

Great masses of people under the heel of minority rule in what were called empires of the past were no more than national neighborhoods. Now, private capital’s continued and faster rape of the earth and its people in pursuit of ever greater profit for some at ever greater loss for most threatens the planet itself, and not just one or another fiefdom, kingdom or community. While the degradation of poorer and less developed nations is more criminal than ever, what is called the developed world suffers not only a spiritual and moral epidemic of social degeneracy but a vast material breakdown as well. All the more reason for ruling power to keep people relatively isolated on the equivalent of mental plantations, kept from any notion of the potential for global democracy and chained to the idea of national, cultural and most ignorant of all, racial difference making it necessary to band together in only the smallest possible groups which guarantee the ruling minority its continued power and make the collective danger much worse.

This continued rule division plays out in the lesser evil politics employed by regimes of capital in supposed democracies like America that allows their subjects to choose between a demublican representative of Goldman Sachs and the Israeli Lobby or a republicrat representative of the Koch Brothers and the Gun Lobby, with full assurance that whether the selected lesser evil needs a proctologist to conduct a brain scan or a pus removal from veins to allow a blood test, Goldman Sachs, the Israel lobby, the Koch Brothers and the Gun Lobby will maintain their control. They will serve and maintain a system by appealing to fictional minorities that insure the tiniest, richest and only real minority still dominates.

That system needs to be radically transformed by a unified, organized majority that acts for the common identity of humanity, which is all the more reason ruling regimes need to keep it divided. More of us seem to be moving in the direction of such organization and that is making capital’s minority rulers, like rats on a sinking ship, more desperately dangerous than ever. Which means the people need to find our identity as a human race sooner than ever or it will be stripped from all of us, no matter what hyphens, accents, beliefs, skin tones or other divisions we have been conditioned to accept as making us somehow un-human, less-human, more-human, super-human or sub-human.

Nature’s hurricanes, tsunamis, droughts and other events, and societies wars, pollution and poverty are all tending to get worse and do not differentiate among humans when they become all encompassing. The way to avoid the fire next time is to stop the fire hazard now. That hazard is anti-democratic, minority-controlled capitalism and the only way to stop it is with democracy. That means the only identity group that is real, humanity, needs to un-divide, unite, and conquer. Period.

The current state of American politics must make us question whether any of our leaders in the Beltway can be described as “grown-ups”, i.e., fully mature and sane individuals. Between the endless war crimes, corporate corruption, lobbyists who bribe congressmen and write legislation, and the ineptitude of federal entities who are supposed to protect our health such as the FDA, EPA, and CDC, it would appear that leaders in all three branches of government, as well as the leaders of the corporate world, are either insane, suffer from various psychological disorders, as well as suffering from a type of collective hallucination, the common denominator being an utter lack of empathy for others humans, or respect for the Earth.

Further, we must at least question whether collectively, we the citizenry, are as susceptible to mass delusions as our psychopathic leaders are. Our society can be effectively generalized as forming what Paulo Freire calls a culture of silence, many of whom see no problems with exploiting and despoiling other countries, looting wealth, and killing millions; and many more that are simply afraid to speak out against the indignity of the US empire, in fear of socio-cultural reprisals. This culture of silence, which we are taught at a young age, indoctrinates and effectively eliminates the ability of people to form critiques of our rotten political and economic systems. This is who Richard Nixon was really referring to, when he spoke of the “Silent Majority”: citizens too naïve, dumb, childlike, and afraid to confront the injustices inherent to our system were exactly who Tricky Dick was appealing to.

A squad of about half a dozen cats patrols a small, overgrown cemetery in central Istanbul.

“It’s a kind of magical place, right under our noses,” says Memo Kösemen, a local artist and graveyard habitué, surveying the small plot of land.

But something’s caught his eye and suddenly he’s crestfallen. He bends down and hoists a freshly smashed tombstone, trying to fit the pieces back together. An older woman’s face, split in half and incised with a spider web of cracks, gapes up at him. This is one of the special ones, Kösemen quickly realizes; one of them, the Dönme.

The shattered tombstone seems sadly symbolic of a small, secretive society founded during the Ottoman Empire but cruelly stigmatized with bombastic conspiracy theories and forced to assimilate into the subsequent Turkish republic or conceal their true identities.

Today, the Islamist-rooted Justice and Development Party, known as the AKP under its Turkish acronym, do not just control of the government; after defeating the recent attempted military coup, its leaders are feeling empowered. Their push to bring Sunni Islam ever closer into public life in Turkey has intensified, making many religious minorities, including descendants of the Dönme, feel ostracized.

As one of the few Dönme members still living in Turkey put it, “They’re trying to force everyone to become a type of Sunni Muslim.”

WTF is going on…is this upside down or what??????

After 20 years of crisscrossing the country as a touring musician, Trey Pearson knows how to work a stage.

On Friday, though, he will enter unfamiliar territory: His performance at the Columbus Pride Festival — a first for the Grandview Heights resident — will mark a brand-new stage, one that has given him an overnight global audience.

In an open letter published May 31 in the arts-and-culture magazine (614), the 35-year-old lead singer of the pop-rock band Everyday Sunday came out as gay.

Given his ties to Christian music, historically not a haven for gay artists, the announcement drew national attention, raising speculation about his future as a gay Christian in the music industry.

Yeah… today is the Fourth of July. Today we celebrate our freedom but that’s a sham. There is no freedom when you are chained to a wheel and where you have surrendered your liberty in the false hope of a non existent security. It doesn’t get taken from you. You give it up. No one becomes a slave until they cease to be their own master. Like the country western song says, “If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything.”

Be Not Afraid of Death


Any human being who has long ignored their pangs of conscience eventually and essentially become all but soulless,* and is to be called an entity.

*I believe that all creatures retain at least some remnants of a soul, which carry the potential of developing from a mere entity to a human being to a spiritually advanced being to being a soul themselves as part of a family of souls.  Currently, our world is controlled by entities with their tiny-souled minions in high finance, governments, and most societal institutions. The unthinking purpose of these controlling entities is a world with only entities in it – in other words, a soulless world. This, however, will not come to pass.
