Hillsdale College - Mixed past reviews about this beautiful Michigan campus
I'm at a conference at Hillsdale College, Hillsdale, Michigan. It is sponsored by a Hillsdale institution called "The Center for Constructive Alternatives." I ran into interesting people here last night with the very similar concerns to me on the issues. There will be a campus tour today. My husband attended Hillsdale College for his freshman year of college and then transferred later to Wayne State University (one of my own alma mater's). The focus of this conference which is directed towards both writers and readers is "The Art of Biography."
I have several friends -- some close -- with Hillsdale College backgrounds. Harry Veryser, a noted economics professor and author himself, was Assistant to the President here many years ago. My stepson, David, graduated from Hillsdale College before I discovered the existence of the New Age Movement.
Hillsdale was not without its own New Age infiltration. I had been informed that one of the professors back in the 1980s was a Rosicrucian and for several years all the "Excellence in Religion" awards had gone to members of his Rosicrucian study group. Among those invited for presentations were Barbara Marx Hubbard, John Naisbitt, Willis Harman, and Marilyn Ferguson. Ipsa res loquitor, legal speak for "the facts speak for themselves."
I'm told the Shavano Institute still exists but has been renamed. I asked about it in the orientation session for visitors this morning. My educated guess for at least the period of the 1980s when they spoke was that the purpose of inviting them was not just to study "comparative ideologies." I rather suspect there were true believers even at conservative Hillsdale College, just as just about everywhere else.
Well, a lecture is now scheduled and it would be rude for me not to attend, so I'm off. I would love to know if anybody else out there ever followed the Shavano Institute situation. Shavano is now renamed as "National Leadership Seminars."
I'm not the only one with these challenges . . . Please BE PATIENT
I've spent extensive time over the past two years reviewing my library and archives. I've scanned enormous amounts of material, made extensive notes, ordered discovered potential references. As a result, I've got lots of irons in the fire and am frustrated trying all I need to do in this human body. Going through my library, I recently found a reference that probably proves I'm not the only one, neither am I the first and probably not the last. Reading an internet reference to Theosophical bent - "religious scholar" and lecturer, Mircea Eliade, originally a Romanian based academic, I discovered he had similar woes. I also discovered that what I was trying to do was probably larger than Eliade's post-war 1949 frustrating project of classifying 9,000 projects was. The passage that inspired me to order and review Journal I, 1945-1948 of his journal was a quoted unfavorable reference to Alice Bailey and her husband Foster Bailey. Quoted below is the part I found interesting:
Mircea Eliade - Journal I - Alice Bailey references are on page 160 of this book.
At teatime, Mme. Froebe tells me about visions experienced by certain eccentric guests, among them Alice Bailey, who saw a monk repeatedly entering the window on the right (all this happened in the room where we're staying, on the second floor, the room in which I'm writing this) . Alice Bailey (what an able adventuress! I met her in London in 1940; my Polish translator-God only knows what her name was; and what an intelligent, likable, informed woman !- gave me a letter of recommendation, and Alice Bailey invited me to dinner. She was with her husband- a nonentity-and a friend , a tremendously voluble American woman, probably her patroness, because she paid for the dinner. Alice Bailey conducted a school of " initiation by correspondence" with a rather high tuition; she had published a number of books-unreadable, and absolutely worthless)-Alice Bailey evoked her master and protector in Tibet, with whom she was in regular communication through telepathy; and with the aid of a ritual she expelled the shade of that mysterious monk who kept coming in the window. After that, Mme. Froebe adds, the monk visited the room next door, where a young Dutch Quaker was staying; he would come at 2:00 A. M. Since the young man's room was directly over Mme. Froebe's bedroom, she would hear him jump out of bed and turn on the light. He would start reading aloud from the Bible. I don't know what sins that monk bad committed, but on hearing the words of the Bible he would disappear.
Well, that was interesting, although Eliade's religious scholarship fails to impress me -- he was obviously a hanger-on himself at Eranos, the institute co-founded by Olga Froebe and Alice Bailey. HOWEVER, I was amused and could related to something else related in this book -- his difficulty in finishing a plethora of projects:
I've written nothing in this notebook for several weeks because
I have been totally immersed in analyzing, classifying, and completing
the materials on shamanism, gathered in the last nine years. Every day,
at the Musee de I 'Homme. Have opened the notebook in order to record
that today I received the corrected proof copy of Le Mythe de l' eternel
Am continuing to work, day and night, on shamanism. Sometimes
I feel almost crushed by the massive Soviet ethnographic
production. And since I can't see a problem clearly until I see it whole,
I keep putting off writing until the last moment, until I've verified even
the smallest detail (verifications which often are futile because I can't
use them; at most, I content myself with an allusion in a footnote).
Another danger: sometimes my "enthusiasm" is exhausted in the
research itself, and when I decide to write it up, I compose somewhat
reluctantly, hastily, using only a small part of the documentation I've
collected and spent days mulling over. (page 90, Mircea Journal I)
Well, I've similar problems. I've been almost totally immersed (besides my remaining law practice) with ANALYZING, CLASSIFYING, and COMPLETING . . . It has dawned on me that I've been in this struggle for now nearly 35 years since 1981. That's five years longer than the religious wars ending in the Treaty of Westphalia lasted in Europe!
I do think I have things computer organized now to the point where writing and accurate referencing will proceed smoothly. Pray for me. I've had health issues recently that has also served to somewhat slow me in this process. I've amassed tremendous materials on General Vallely and Michael Aquino -- that backburnered projecd continues.
Merry Christmas to all and thank you for your patience. I'm also behind in reading comments. I had several rough days with the "cold" or whatever it was last weekend and beyond. I'm still coughing up part of it. We plan a quiet Christmas with Church, family and close friends. Clearly our world is in a real mess. Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus! This day reminds us all of the Hope we have!
Disturbing New Issues in the Wake of the San Bernadino Shootings
Disturbing Issues in the Wake of the San Bernadino Shootings
Names have been released of the dead shooters yesterday in the San Bernadino massacre of 14 and wouding of many more. The names are that of an Illinois born Moslem named Syed Farook and his wife Tashfeen Malik. They are undoubtedly Islamic names. Syed was 28 and his wife was 27. They had a 6 month old baby. They were reportedly, per CNN accounts this morning, "religious." It has not been characterized so far as "terrorism," but San Bernadino police, also per CNN reports, "have not ruled terrorism out." Per an article by Michele Hickford Farook had recently taken a month long trip to Saudi Arabia and came back with Tashfeen as his wife. They left their baby with grandparents, Farook went to his employer's Christmas party and then appeared to be enraged at a co-worker. He and Tashfeen returned and the rest is very tragic history. Now, I'm not an Islamic basher, per se. We have many Moslems in the Detroit metropolitan area and so far the relations between Jews, Christians, and Moslems has been mostly peaceful. While there have been arguments over Christian presence at Moslem street festivals, there is also peaceful business interaction and even social friendships. From SE Michigan's large Arabic community, there are large groups of both Christians and Moslems. The Chaldean community is primarily Catholic, but I've met Chaldean Baptists. Probably the most agitated of Arabic communities in the Detroit area to my observation are the Palestinians. I do recall seeing reports of post-911 celebrations in the Dearborn area. As I recall the celebrants were Palestinian. Now, the interesting part from my observation -- not of the shooters -- but of the planned "dialogue and reconciliation". A pleasant appearing fellow appeared on CNN's morning programming within the past half hour of my writing. He said that he represented the Ahmahdiyya Mosque and they were holding a large prayer service at their San Bernadino mosque this evening (Thursday, December 3, 2015). He urged everybody to come and pray with them. I somewhat blinked as I thought I heard him say it was a movement founded by "the Messiah." I've heard of Sunni Moslems and Shia Moslems. This was the first I had heard of the Ahmadiyya movement of Moslems. I decided to do a little research and found much of concern that like other phases of the New Age Movement (a Movement dedicated to eliminating Jews, Christians, and Moslems) was acting in a way that could subtly channel folk into the bottom line of the New Age Movement -- acceptance of a new "Messiah" who was neither Jesus nor Jewish. What was the Ahmadiyya Movement about? The following significant and disturbing material is found in the Wikipedia article on the subject and I quote it here:
Ahmadiyya . . . officially, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community or the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama'at; . . . is an Islamic religious movement founded in British India near the end of the 19th century. It originated with the life and teachings of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835–1908), who claimed to have fulfilled the prophecies of the world's reformer during the end times, who was to herald the eschaton as predicted in the traditions of variousworld religions and bring about, by peaceful means, the final triumph of Islam as per Islamic prophecy. He claimed that he was the Mujaddid (divine reformer) of the 14th Islamic century, the promised Messiah and Mahdi awaited by Muslims. The adherents of the Ahmadiyya movement are referred to as Ahmadi Muslims or simply Ahmadis.
Ahmadi thought emphasizes the belief that Islam is the final dispensation for humanity as revealed to Muhammad and the necessity of restoring to it its true essence and pristine form, which had been lost through the centuries.Ahmadiyya adherents believe that Ahmad appeared in the likeness of Jesus, to end religious wars, condemn bloodshed and reinstitute morality, justice, and peace. They believe that upon divine guidance he divested Islam of fanatical and innovative beliefs and practices by championing what is, in their view, Islam’s true and essential teachings as practised by Muhammad and the early Islamic community. Thus, Ahmadis view themselves as leading the revival and peaceful propagation of Islam.
Mirza Ghulam Ahmad founded the movement on 23 March 1889 and termed it the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama'at, sometimes translated as Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. Since his death, the community has been led by a number of Caliphs and has expanded to over 200 countries and territories of the world. The Ahmadis were among the earliest Muslim communities to arrive inBritain and other Western countries. Currently, the community is led by its Caliph, Mirza Masroor Ahmad, and is officially estimated to number between 10 and 20 million worldwide.
So, the Ahmadiyya Movement stands for a "Messiah," clearly neither Jesus nor Jewish. It is very interesting to me that it was founded in India at just about the same time that the Theosophists were promulgating very, very similar philosophies and preparing the world to receive a new messiah, although the Theosophical Society originally passed itself off as merely studying comparative religion. My impressions? That the California killings could well have been part of a Isis or radicalized equivalent "sleeper cell" and that the New Age slogan of "crisis = opportunity" is also at work. I'm still researching this, but as Californians were urged to flock to the Mosque for the communal prayer service I suspect it is another diabolical move towards their long awaited "New World Religion" where all say "blessed be thy God" rather than "blessed be My God." My research in this area will continue and your comments are invited. Stay tuned! Constance
Grant from New Zealand and past active participants in the comments section forum of of this blogspot have alerted me over the years to the activities of Bill Johnson, the book, PHYSICS OF HEAVEN, and concerns that this is New Age invasion of particularly the Charismatic churches. Today I received a phone call from somebody very close to my home area giving me nearly identical concerns and steering me to the work of Andrew Strom who was helping to report on disturbing developments among Charismatic Christians.
New Age leader Jeremy Rifkin wrote THE EMERGING ORDER God in the Age of Scarcity (1979). It was co-authored with Ted Howard. The mass paperback Ballantine Epiphany edition had the following Christian endorsements:
J. Edward Hakes, Dean, Trinity College
John Bernbaum, Christian College Consortium
Myron Westphal, Philosophy Department Chairman, Hope College
Bishop James Armstrong, President, National Council of Churches
Gilbert Bilezikian, Professor of Bible, Wheaton College
John W. Alexander, Past President, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship
Interestingly, Rifkin was hailed as a "prophet" for this book that in essence said that a New World Order would be ushered in by a "new Protestant reformation." The Charismatics would supply the "liberating energy." The Evangelicals would supply the new theology and/or "new covenant vision" in the form of a "Stewardship Paradigm" in place of the 'outmoded' "Fall and Dominion" paradigm.
For my personal analysis of Rifkin's theology and works, consult my chapter "A SECRET KINGDOM" in my second book, A PLANNED DECEPTION: THE STAGING OF A NEW AGE MESSIAH. Here is an online link to a free downloadable edition from Internet Archives, org.
I believe based on what I have seen so far that the concerns coming to me from as far away as New Zealand and as close as Pontiac, Michigan are legitimate. Therefore, I'm recommending the viewing and downloading of Andrew Strom's videos. I noticed that his obviously professionally produced documentaries were available without charge and reproduction was urged. I like that! I can't conceive of any legitimate Biblical prophet of old saying "send me $39.95 and I will send you my prophecy video of the month."
Please watch and many thanks to New Zealand and Pontiac, Michigan -- far and near to home, for putting me onto these issues.
TMERadio Break for Studio Equipment Repairs & Upgrading next two Saturdays
Dear Readers: Many of you regularly listen to my internet radio program on TMERadio.com. It is also known as TheMicroEffect.com. The program has been a tremendous bully pulpit for me for the past eight years since April 2007 when Joe McNeill, the network owner, first offered me a program of my own. Previous to that, I had been interviewed by some of his other then hosts. Joe runs an amazing operation in Kamiah, Idaho. He has made brilliant use of "recycled" computers combined with other technology that is "beyond my pay grade" to reach an international audience. I have had people call in to my program from as far away as New Zealand. I have used the program to lay out detailed expository information that I have not yet had time to reduce to the printed page. I have also used it to share critical information on what is currently transpiring in the New Age Movement as well as overlooked history accessible to me through my private library, but not readily sitting on most conventional public library shelves. For the last four years or so, I have done the program for two hours each and every Saturday morning. Occasionally I have used guest hosts including the late Dr. Stanley Momteith, John Loeffler, and Sarah Leslie. There are many other hosts on Joe's network from which my own world views radically diverge. Joe McNeill tells me that he believes in "Freedom of Speech" and he believes that listeners can do their own research and sort it out for themselves. But at any rate, Joe gave me a platform when many who professed to be cult experts tried to muzzle me. You might want to review my past articles on "The Hi-Jacking of Evangelicalism," both here and on NEWSWITHVIEWS.COM. TMERadio is revamping its studios and equipment. New broadband lines are scheduled for installation and the provider has notified Joe that it will take two weeks to properly install and test the equipment. Therefore, we will be off the air for the next two Saturdays. I had a guest scheduled for this coming Saturday, David Livingstone. I have interviewed him successfully in the past about his own extensive research and writing on the New Age Movement and its impact. He has now written a brilliant new book on TRANSHUMANISM. He sent me a .pdf review copy that I am still reading, but the depth and breadth of his research amazes me, just as Lee Penn and Cliff Kincaid's work never cease to humble me. I'm still working on Part 3 of my series on General Paul E. Vallely and military New Age and Satanism with possible tentacles reaching into the Tea Party Movement. I've also been doing extensive research lately on the obvious continuation of the 1970's Weathermen Movement, a violent branch of SDS (Students for a Democratic Society). I did my radio program last Saturday on that, reviewing a book long in my library on DIANA: THE MAKING OF A TERRORIST (Thomas Powers, Houghton Mifflin Publishers, 1971.) My particular copy was purchased several years ago at a Baldwin (Birmingham, Michigan) Public Library used book sale. It was discontinued by the library for reasons I do now understand.
DIANA: THE MAKING OF A TERRORIST book covers.
The book should be required reading and it gives deep insights into ideological radicalization similar to that we are seeing now. Bill Ayers, the same Bill Ayers now married to Weatherman leader, Bernadein Dohrn, was Diana's then boyfriend. That young woman, Diana Oughton was killed on March 6, 1970,by a bomb she was helping to make misfired and destroyed a Greenwich Village townhouse where she was located. She was the beautiful daughter of a wealthy and prominent Illinois family. She became radicalised probably by her finest and best motives after witnessing extreme Guatemalan poverty. She was also co-running a New Age school in Ann Arbor, Michigan with Bill Ayers. The school was based on the beliefs of Alexander Sutherland Neill who believed that the student should shape learning, not the teachers. The school Diana and Bill Ayers ran in Ann Arbor, Michigan, it developed, never taught a single one of its many students to read. That was discovered when third grade children started begging their parents to teach them to read. Diana's radicalisation then went on to more violent manifestations, including a belief that they were making war on all USA citizens. Many believe this to have been a Marxist operation. There was Marxist indoctrination and ideology there. But, there were even heavier New Age aspects, including free love, sexual experimentation, "smash monogamy", group sex, "free love" and beyond. LSD, drugs, and the like were heavily employed by those in the Weatherman operation. There was extreme violence by this group that included bombings of several government buildings, including the United States Capitol Building. It is relevant now because of the current links of the unrepentant leadermen leaders (Dohrn and Ayers, now a married couple) who have been publicly advising OCCUPY members on the stages they can expectg in their movements, including violence.
Bernardine Dohrn and Bill Ayers at Occupy rally,
I will have much more to say on this later. Stay tuned! CONSTANCE
Pope Francis' Speech to Joint Session of Congress -- My concerns are yellow high-lighted
To my readers:
I have watched Pope Francis' speech to Congress with no small degree of consternation. In 1981 I opened a file and called it "War on Fundamentalism." It appears that the present Pope's speech fired a significant salvo in that war against "Fundamentalists" (those believing the fundamentals of Scripture and their religion to be true). The "we are all one and we are all inter-connected themes of Alice Bailey and other New Agers come through, albeit subtly. The "technological advances" to facilitate global wealth redistribution, ditto. And then there were the spiritual examples given by him, the most glaring in my opinion being that of Thomas Merton. Obviously, Thomas Merton was canonized long ago -- by the THEOSOPHISTS, the mothership of the New Age Movement."
I'm sharing with you the transcript of the Pope's speech. I honestly can't help but wonder if Pope Benedict XVI (Ratzinger) has been the victim of a literal Vatican coup. While there are some issues on which I applaud things this Pope has said -- asking every Catholic parish in Europe to adopt a refugee family -- the balance to me is presently VERY TROUBLING.
I have yellow highlighted some obvious areas of my own concern. I put a few of my comments in aqua highlighting. I value your opinions and please
Members of Congress,
most grateful for your invitation to address this Joint Session of Congress in
“the land of the free and the home of the brave”. I would like to think that
the reason for this is that I too am a son of this great continent, from which
we have all received so much and toward which we share a common responsibility.
son or daughter of a given country has a mission, a personal and social
responsibility. Your own responsibility as members of Congress is to enable
this country, by your legislative activity, to grow as a nation. You are the
face of its people, their representatives. You are called to defend and
preserve the dignity of your fellow citizens in the tireless and demanding
pursuit of the common good, for this is the chief aim of all politics. A political
society endures when it seeks, as a vocation, to satisfy common needs by
stimulating the growth of all its members, especially those in situations of
greater vulnerability or risk. Legislative activity is always based on care for
the people. To this you have been invited, called and convened by those who
is a work which makes me reflect in two ways on the figure of Moses. On the one
hand, the patriarch and lawgiver of the people of Israel symbolizes the need of
peoples to keep alive their sense of unity by means of just legislation. On the
other, the figure of Moses leads us directly to God and thus to the
transcendent dignity of the human being. Moses provides us with a good
synthesis of your work: you are asked to protect, by means of the law, the
image and likeness fashioned by God on every human face.
would like not only to address you, but through you the entire people of the
United States. Here, together with their representatives, I would like to take
this opportunity to dialogue with the many thousands of men and women who
strive each day to do an honest day’s work, to bring home their daily bread, to
save money and –one step at a time – to build a better life for their families.
These are men and women who are not concerned simply with paying their taxes,
but in their own quiet way sustain the life of society. They generate
solidarity by their actions, and they create organizations which offer a
helping hand to those most in need.
also like to enter into dialogue with the many elderly persons who are a
storehouse of wisdom forged by experience, and who seek in many ways,
especially through volunteer work, to share their stories and their insights. I
know that many of them are retired, but still active; they keep working to
build up this land. I also want to dialogue with all those young people who are
working to realize their great and noble aspirations, who are not led astray by
facile proposals, and who face difficult situations, often as a result of immaturity
on the part of many adults. I wish to dialogue with all of you, and I would
like to do so through the historical memory of your people.
visit takes place at a time when men and women of good will are marking the
anniversaries of several great Americans. The complexities of history and the
reality of human weakness notwithstanding, these men and women, for all their
many differences and limitations, were able by hard work and self-sacrifice –
some at the cost of their lives – to build a better future. They shaped
fundamental values which will endure forever in the spirit of the American
people. A people with this spirit can live through many crises, tensions and
conflicts, while always finding the resources to move forward, and to do so
with dignity. These men and women offer us a way of seeing and interpreting
reality. In honoring their memory, we are inspired, even amid conflicts, and in
the here and now of each day, to draw upon our deepest cultural reserves.
like to mention four of these Americans: Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King,
Dorothy Day and Thomas Merton.
year marks the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the assassination of
President Abraham Lincoln, the guardian of liberty, who labored tirelessly that
“this nation, under God, [might] have a new birth of freedom”. Building a
future of freedom requires love of the common good and cooperation in a spirit
of subsidiarity and solidarity.
us are quite aware of, and deeply worried by, the disturbing social and
political situation of the world today. Our world is increasingly a place of
violent conflict, hatred and brutal atrocities, committed even in the name of
God and of religion. We know that no religion is immune from forms of individual
delusion or ideological extremism. This means that we must be especially
attentive to every type of fundamentalism, whether religious or of any other
kind. A delicate balance is required to combat violence perpetrated in the name
of a religion, an ideology or an economic system, while also safeguarding
religious freedom, intellectual freedom and individual freedoms. But there is
another temptation which we must especially guard against: the simplistic
reductionism which sees only good or evil; or, if you will, the righteous and
sinners. The contemporary world, with its open wounds which affect so many of
our brothers and sisters, demands that we confront every form of polarization
which would divide it into these two camps. We know that in the attempt to be
freed of the enemy without, we can be tempted to feed the enemy within. To
imitate the hatred and violence of tyrants and murderers is the best way to
take their place. That is something which you, as a people, reject.
response must instead be one of hope and healing, of peace and justice. We are
asked to summon the courage and the intelligence to resolve today’s many
geopolitical and economic crises. Even in the developed world, the effects of
unjust structures and actions are all too apparent. Our efforts must aim at
restoring hope, righting wrongs, maintaining commitments, and thus promoting
the well-being of individuals and of peoples. We must move forward together, as
one, in a renewed spirit of fraternity and solidarity, cooperating generously
for the common good.
challenges facing us today call for a renewal of that spirit of cooperation,
which has accomplished so much good throughout the history of the United
States. The complexity, the gravity and the urgency of these challenges demand
that we pool our resources and talents, and resolve to support one another,
with respect for our differences and our convictions of conscience.
land, the various religious denominations have greatly contributed to building
and strengthening society. It is important that today, as in the past, the
voice of faith continue to be heard, for it is a voice of fraternity and love,
which tries to bring out the best in each person and in each society. Such
cooperation is a powerful resource in the battle to eliminate new global forms
of slavery, born of grave injustices which can be overcome only through new
policies and new forms of social consensus.
is, instead, an expression of our compelling need to live as one, in order to
build as one the greatest common good: that of a community which sacrifices
particular interests in order to share, in justice and peace, its goods, its
interests, its social life. I do not underestimate the difficulty that this
involves, but I encourage you in this effort.
too I think of the march which Martin Luther King led from Selma to Montgomery
fifty years ago as part of the campaign to fulfill his “dream” of full civil
and political rights for African Americans. That dream continues to inspire us
all. I am happy that America continues to be, for many, a land of “dreams”.
Dreams which lead to action, to participation, to commitment. Dreams which
awaken what is deepest and truest in the life of a people.
recent centuries, millions of people came to this land to pursue their dream of
building a future in freedom. We, the people of this continent, are not fearful
of foreigners, because most of us were once foreigners. I say this to you as
the son of immigrants, knowing that so many of you are also descended from immigrants.
Tragically, the rights of those who were here long before us were not always
respected. For those peoples and their nations, from the heart of American
democracy, I wish to reaffirm my highest esteem and appreciation. Those first
contacts were often turbulent and violent, but it is difficult to judge the
past by the criteria of the present. Nonetheless, when the stranger in our
midst appeals to us, we must not repeat the sins and the errors of the past. We
must resolve now to live as nobly and as justly as possible, as we educate new
generations not to turn their back on our “neighbors” and everything around us.
Building a nation calls us to recognize that we must constantly relate to
others, rejecting a mindset of hostility in order to adopt one of reciprocal
subsidiarity, in a constant effort to do our best. I am confident that we can
world is facing a refugee crisis of a magnitude not seen since the Second World
War. This presents us with great challenges and many hard decisions. On this
continent, too, thousands of persons are led to travel north in search of a
better life for themselves and for their loved ones, in search of greater
opportunities. Is this not what we want for our own children? We must not be
taken aback by their numbers, but rather view them as persons, seeing their
faces and listening to their stories, trying to respond as best we can to their
situation. To respond in a way which is always humane, just and fraternal. We
need to avoid a common temptation nowadays: to discard whatever proves
troublesome. Let us remember the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have
them do unto you” (Mt 7:12).
Rule points us in a clear direction. Let us treat others with the same passion
and compassion with which we want to be treated. Let us seek for others the
same possibilities which we seek for ourselves. Let us help others to grow, as
we would like to be helped ourselves. In a word, if we want security, let us
give security; if we want life, let us give life; if we want opportunities, let
us provide opportunities. The yardstick we use for others will be the yardstick
which time will use for us. The Golden Rule also reminds us of our
responsibility to protect and defend human life at every stage of its
conviction has led me, from the beginning of my ministry, to advocate at
different levels for the global abolition of the death penalty. I am convinced
that this way is the best, since every life is sacred, every human person is
endowed with an inalienable dignity, and society can only benefit from the
rehabilitation of those convicted of crimes. Recently my brother bishops here
in the United States renewed their call for the abolition of the death penalty.
Not only do I support them, but I also offer encouragement to all those who are
convinced that a just and necessary punishment must never exclude the dimension
of hope and the goal of rehabilitation.
these times when social concerns are so important, I cannot fail to mention the
Servant of God Dorothy Day, who founded the Catholic Worker Movement. Her
social activism, her passion for justice and for the cause of the oppressed,
were inspired by the Gospel, her faith, and the example of the saints.
much progress has been made in this area in so many parts of the world! How
much has been done in these first years of the third millennium to raise people
out of extreme poverty! I know that you share my conviction that much more
still needs to be done, and that in times of crisis and economic hardship a spirit
of global solidarity must not be lost. At the same time I would encourage you
to keep in mind all those people around us who are trapped in a cycle of
poverty. They too need to be given hope. The fight against poverty and hunger
must be fought constantly and on many fronts, especially in its causes. I know
that many Americans today, as in the past, are working to deal with this
without saying that part of this great effort is the creation and distribution
of wealth. The right use of natural resources, the proper application of
technology and the harnessing of the spirit of enterprise are essential
elements of an economy which seeks to be modern, inclusive and sustainable.
“Business is a noble vocation, directed to producing wealth and improving the
world. It can be a fruitful source
of prosperity for the area in which it operates, especially if it sees the
creation of jobs as an essential part of its service to the common good”
(Laudato Si’, 129). This common good also includes the earth, a central theme
of the encyclical which I recently wrote in order to “enter into dialogue with
all people about our common home” (ibid., 3). “We need a conversation which
includes everyone, since the environmental challenge we are undergoing, and its
human roots, concern and affect us all” (ibid., 14).
Laudato Si’, I call for a courageous and responsible effort to “redirect our
steps” (ibid., 61), and to avert the most serious effects of the environmental
deterioration caused by human activity. I am convinced that we can make a
difference and I have no doubt that the United States – and this Congress –
have an important role to play. Now is the time for courageous actions and
strategies, aimed at implementing a “culture of care” (ibid., 231) and “an integrated
approach to combating poverty, restoring dignity to the excluded, and at the
same time protecting nature” (ibid., 139). “We have the freedom needed to limit
and direct technology” (ibid., 112); “to devise intelligent ways of… developing

another type of progress, one which is healthier, more human, more social, more
integral” (ibid., 112). In this regard, I am confident that America’s
outstanding academic and research institutions can make a vital contribution in
the years ahead. [QUERY: wouldn't the system warned of in Revelation 13 fill the bill here?]
century ago, at the beginning of the Great War, which Pope Benedict XV termed a
“pointless slaughter”, another notable American was born: the Cistercian monk
Thomas Merton. He remains a source of spiritual inspiration and a guide for
many people. In his autobiography he wrote: “I came into the world. Free by
nature, in the image of God, I was nevertheless the prisoner of my own violence
and my own selfishness, in the image of the world into which I was born. That
world was the picture of Hell, full of men like myself, loving God, and yet
hating him; born to love him, living instead in fear of hopeless
self-contradictory hungers”. Merton was above all a man of prayer, a thinker
who challenged the certitudes of his time and opened new horizons for souls and
for the Church. He was also a man of dialogue, a promoter of peace between
peoples and religions. [Doesn't Pope Francis know that Thomas Merton was in effect 'canonized a long time ago -- by the Theosophists and their fellow travelers, including but not limited to Matthew Fox's crowd and Lucis Trust? Merton was one of Matthew Fox's early mentors!]
this perspective of dialogue, I would like to recognize the efforts made in
recent months to help overcome historic differences linked to painful episodes
of the past. It is my duty to build bridges and to help all men and women, in
any way possible, to do the same. When countries which have been at odds resume
the path of dialogue – a dialogue which may have been interrupted for the most
legitimate of reasons – new opportunities open up for all. This has required,
and requires, courage and daring, which is not the same as irresponsibility. A
good political leader is one who, with the interests of all in mind, seizes the
moment in a spirit of openness and pragmatism. A good political leader always
opts to initiate processes rather than possessing spaces (cf. Evangelii
at the service of dialogue and peace also means being truly determined to
minimize and, in the long term, to end the many armed conflicts throughout our
world. Here we have to ask ourselves: Why are deadly weapons being sold to
those who plan to inflict untold suffering on individuals and society? Sadly,
the answer, as we all know, is simply for money: money that is drenched in
blood, often innocent blood. In the face of this shameful and culpable silence,
it is our duty to confront the problem and to stop the arms trade.

end my visit to your country in Philadelphia, where I will take part in the
World Meeting of Families. It is my wish that throughout my visit the family
should be a recurrent theme. How essential the family has been to the building
of this country! And how worthy it remains of our support and encouragement!
Yet I cannot hide my concern for the family, which is threatened, perhaps as
never before, from within and without. Fundamental relationships are being
called into question, as is the very basis of marriage and the family. I can
only reiterate the importance and, above all, the richness and the beauty of
particular, I would like to call attention to those family members who are the
most vulnerable, the young. For many of them, a future filled with countless
possibilities beckons, yet so many others seem disoriented and aimless, trapped
in a hopeless maze of violence, abuse and despair. Their problems are our
problems. We cannot avoid them. We need to face them together, to talk about
them and to seek effective solutions rather than getting bogged down in
discussions. At the risk of oversimplifying, we might say that we live in a
culture which pressures young people not to start a family, because they lack
possibilities for the future. Yet this same culture presents others with so
many options that they too are dissuaded from starting a family.

fosters a culture which enables people to “dream” of full rights for all their
brothers and sisters, as Martin Luther King sought to do; when it strives for
justice and the cause of the oppressed, as Dorothy Day did by her tireless
work, the fruit of a faith which becomes dialogue and sows peace in the
contemplative style of Thomas Merton.
these remarks I have sought to present some of the richness of your cultural
heritage, of the spirit of the American people. It is my desire that this
spirit continue to develop and grow, so that as many young people as possible
can inherit and dwell in a land which has inspired so many people to dream.
Dear Friends of ours urgently need our help -- Dennis & his mother Peggy Cuddy
This is a special and unusual appeal. I received a phone call from Lee Penn who called my attention to an unusual article on NewswithViews. The article was by reknown and respected researcher and writer Dennis Cuddy. Dennis has been diligently physically caring for his aging mother, Peggy Cuddy, now in her mid 90's. Peggy Cuddy, a brilliant and gifted researcher, raised her son right. Peggy Cuddy is the creator of the Tree Chart. If you want or need a copy of this chart, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line reading only Cuddy Chart and I will send you a printable pdf file that you can use in explaining New Age issues to others. If you read the linked article, you can see, as I did, that this was a serious cry for help from one of our dearest and most deserving friends. If you can help with their serious plight of the loss of already too scant income combined with the loss of their long time leased residence, please send generously what you can to: Dennis Cuddy, 1027 Saint Marys Street, Raleigh, North Carolina 27605-1232. Their situation is urgent. Also, if the residency issue and storage issues are not resolved, Dennis has invaluable papers and library from his many years of research (he is "Dr. Dennis Cuddy, Ph.D.). He has sacrificed so very much as many of us have to bring accurate information to us on the pressing New World Order issues of our time without over-sensationalizing and profiteering in the process. Now, they need our help and those of us keeping up with these issues are increasingly discovering that we need each other. I thank Lee Penn for calling this to my attention -- I had missed that NewswithViews posting. I did call Dennis Cuddy upon receiving the information. Dennis told me that indeed the situation is urgent, even critical. Let's give them our help, as much as we can afford. Dennis and Peggy would have done the same for us had the tables been turned.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF PART 2 OF MY NEWSWITHVIEWS ARTICLE ABOUT MICHAEL AQUINO, GENERAL PAUL VALLELY AND THE MILITARY
To my readers: I'm adding to this article before submission. Refresh your browser frequently. Because of personal health issues, this article and a great deal of my blog participation has been delayed. I'm feeling better now and my draft of Part 2 that will go to NewswithViews tomorrow is below for your reading. Google has placed a notice on blogspots that they are obliged under EUROPEAN UNION law to notify readers of "cookies" placed on their blogspot.. The good news is that I have never used cookies nor do I advertise from here. As to links that I sometimes attach, I cannot vouch for whether or not the same is true of that location. I always run my own virus checker (Norton 360) to check when going to unfamiliar spots. I would recommend the virus checker and/or firewall precautions for all. We wouldn't want to violate European Union law, would we!
PART 2: Did
Major General (Ret.) Paul E. Vallely Help Facilitate Military Satanism?
Part 2 of 4
The last segment I wrote received an unprecedented
NewswithViews publisher’s disclaimer.
The opinions expressed were solely those of the author. Obviously, to my eye, the publisher had been
put under extraordinary pressures. That
is not surprising seeing that I had tackled a characterized “darling of the
Tea Party” who had been a commander in
military PsyOp operations. Those
operations were designed to convince the “enemies” – foreign and domestic –
that they had already lost and all resistance was futile. I learned of intense pressures having been
put on my publisher (NWV) and that the disclaimer had been necessary for their protection.
For those who missed that last segment, my article had an
unexpected inspiration. I was invited by
some very nice Michigan people to become part of the Board of Directors of
“Women Defending America.” I was told
that the organization had been proposed by three generals. The women were to be organized in uniformed
battalions. When I half jokingly told my
inviting person that “you realize that you will be accused of forming a Fascist
brigade”, she told me that one of the Generals proposing the operation told her
that they only reason America had not been “taken over” yet was because too
many of her citizens were armed. Towards
the end of our otherwise congenial meeting, I casually asked her for the names
of the three generals. “McInerney,
Vallely, and Boykin” was the reply.
It was a nearly mid June Friday night. I do a regular two hour internet radio
(TMERadio.com) broadcasts on Saturday mornings.
I often sit at my computer late on Friday nights preparing for them. At about 11:30 p.m., I recalled my conversation
and thought that maybe I’d better check the Generals out while I still recalled
their names. Fully expecting to find
stars, bars, Purple Hearts, and military commendations only, I first Googled
“McInerney.” Up popped several “people
also search for” pictures. One was
“Paul Vallely.” I recalled that was the
name she mentioned as the one who told her why America had not yet “been taken
over.” I clicked that link and was
astounded to come up with references on the first page of hits on his name only
to his association with Satanic leader, Michael A. Aquino. Dumbfounded, I then Googled the terms
“Aquino” and “Vallely” and came up with many hits. I made an improvident 11:45 call to the lady
who graciously invited me in good faith to be part of the Board for WDA. I left a message that I was disturbed to find
links to Satanism in connection with one of the Generals. I could not afford to have my name associated
with that and hopefully she would not either.
Chagrined that I had nearly stepped into this, I made an
immediate blog posting to my own site, “My
Perspective” with the suggestive title of “Watch Where You Walk – I Nearly
Stepped into This One!” I did a cut and
paste of the Googled hits as illustrations of the “Hidden Dangers” I had nearly
failed to miss.
I then made a search of my personally archived computer
files and again was shocked to see that I had identified Paul Vallely in Vol.
1, No. 2, June 1986 newsletter as Michael Aquino’s ongoing patron and protector
in the military. I had received that
information from impeccable sources, including a former lady friend of Lt.
Colonel Michael Aquino, former minister in Anton Szandor LaVey’s Church of
Satan, and founder of the equally if not more Satanic Temple of Set.
Not reaching the lady who invited me – a woman who was
heavily emotionally and financially invested into what she thought was good and
right for our country, I then tried reaching out to others. I perused the materials I had been given at
that meeting for WDA and located another officer, a fine Christian lady. I reached her with the information together
with a letter I was sending to the inviter.
She thanked me, but then called me back saying she had spoken to a
“prayer partner” and instead wanted me to draft a new bylaw for that
organization saying they did not support Satanism in any way.
My research then dismayingly told me that General Vallely
had been very busy and very successful even with many of my long time friends
and supporters in the struggle against the New Age Movement. I reached as many of those people as I
could. Some seriously listened, some so
far are awaiting more evidence.
This was not the first time General Vallely had encountered
references to the Aquino association.
Wen Colonel Riley proposed a 10 million man march on Washington using an
“Arab Spring” (Operation America Spring) model of bringing down a
government. Reportedly, that plan had
been endorsed by General Vallely. Many
had come forward with the Satanic charges then.
Through his website, General Vallely had made veiled threats that they
needn’t bother purging their websites of the “ridiculous allegations” – he already
had them archived and they would hear from his lawyers. He told them that attempts to “defame a
reputation” were actionable slander and libel.
He forgot to tell them that in the law, at least in the USA, truth is an
He was, in my opinion, obviously practicing the time-tested PsyOp art of convincing his opposition
that “all resistance is futile” to the ultimate degree! It also appears to me that some very big lies are being repeated often enough that more naive followers might believe them.
General Vallely, per the Michigan WDA leaders, sent the
following (via Scott Winchell, his editor) to their organization. They forwarded the same to me via email:
Back in early 1980s, Vallely was Commander of the 7th Psychological Group, a Colonel at the time. Colonel Paul Vallely was assigned by Army senior officers to study what the Soviets were doing about mind control, or what we now refer to as Psychological Operations. The Army and Col. Vallely assigned Major Michael Aquino to prepare a draft and analysis for a final paper on the subject. Shortly thereafter, it was learned that Major Aquino was associated with the Temple of Set, based and registered in California, fou nded in 1975. The church was a Satanist sect and was actively recruiting members in the Army and Army Headquarters was non-too-pleased. An Army General then assigned Col. Vallely to investigate the case and report the findings to the Department of the Army in Washington. Colonel Vallely was the one who conducted the investigation and determined the facts. Aquino was indeed a Satanist in the Temple of Set and was the second or deputy to Anton levay, then head of the Temple of SEt, which was a sect of the Church of Satan. He was closely associated with the movie "Rosemary's Baby" from 1968. There was even a study on "Staring at Goats" which was made into a movie in 2004. Col. Vallely reported his findings but Army lawyers could do nothing as the church was classified as a religion under the First Amendment, freedom of religion. Aquino and the other officers were reassigned and stayed in the Army for sometime afer. MG [Major General] Vallely is a devout Catholic and at no time was he ever involved with the Satanists of the Temple of Set or anothing other than Catholicism. Aquino himself has said that MG Vallely and he were not working to establish any CIA or Nazi derived program. That is in his words: "assorted cranks tried to make a public issue outof this paper just because of its catchytitle . . . that paper had no connection MK-Ultra, nor Paperclip, nor any crazy Nazi experiments. "As y ou can see it is only because these studies that were performed, and there were a great many performed in other areas, do crackpots like [names wihheld] try to force some conspiracy theory that we are all under mind control operations."
I responded to this material in my NewswithViews
article. I spent a little money doing my
research. I ordered both the Kindle and
the oversized book, EXTREME PREJUDICE.
General Vallely claimed that neither he nor the army knew about Aquino’s
Satanism until after he and Michael
Aquino did the joint paper commissioned by General Vallely in 1980.
General Vallely, I’m informed personally told the group here
that he investigated on behalf of the Army to see if
Michael Aquino was a Satanist. He further said that "he testified against him (Aquino).
shown in the above video clip of the Oprah Winfrey Show of February 1988,
Michael Aquino plainly says that the Army knew of his Satanic religion from his
original commissioning in 1968. This was
a full 12 years before the Aquino-Vallely project in 1980. Vallely also wrote in his book, EXTREME PREJUDICE, that his involvement had been known since 1968 and no official nor adverse official concern or action was ever taken. He records this on page 197, paragraph 20 of that book.
might be expected, some of the leadership of the Michigan group is most unhappy
with me. There were others who thanked me and resigned
their WDA posts rather than work further with General Vallely. I understand the lady who invited me to join
the Board protested that even if true, the information published in my
newsletter was nearly 30 years old. That
What is not old, however, is the very new and obvious lie told by General
Vallely that he was charged with investigating Michael Aquino AFTER their joint
operations. Clearly, he and the others
in the military – particularly their brand of “military intelligence” knew of
Aquino’s open Satanism. Clearly, Vallely
knew of Michael Aquino’s Welwelsburg Working in 1983, 3 years before I wrote my
newsletter with information from credible sources that “Brigadier General Paul
Vallely” was Michael Aquino’s protector.

before and after using these links, should you decide it is necessary. It was necessary for my research and my virus
checker discovered numerous tracking links that were promptly quarantined
Unfortunately, the influences in the military are broader
and deeper. Aquino’s own books plainly
reveal the deep cross-pollination.
Aquino exemplifies the “left hand path” of Satanism. Other facets of the New Age are sometimes
called by adherents, the “right hand path.”
All those paths converge to the same ultimate
destination. In addition to “watch where
you walk,” to avoid stepping into something unpleasant, may I respectfully
suggest, “you don’t want to go THERE.”
Part 3 will discuss “Chaos Theory” and how it is playing
into military and other society changing scenarios. In the meantime, “watch where you walk!” Stay tuned! CONSTANCE

reading this, the first of 4 articles planned for the next 4 weeks on this
sobering subject, it might be helpful to review the principles of Hegelian
Dialectics – controlling both sides to direct all to the desired planned
destination. Reading the Bible would help
even more. I particularly recommend the
passages about deception that could, if possible, “deceive even the Elect.” For those of you who believe you are “Elect”
and therefore immune, I suggest you are perhaps now the most vulnerable. One of my all time favorite writers Fr.
Seraphim Rose )1934-1982) before his death in his sobering book ORTHODOXY AND THE RELIGION OF THE FUTURE
made this picturesque observation:
“Satan, it would seem, is now entering naked
into human history.”
not so hidden links between American military leadership and one of the
country’s most significant Satanic leaders, obviously Satan has clearly entered
very much naked into our human history, yes right here in the USA. Most have failed to see it, even though there
have been abundant warnings, some albeit from rightfully questionable sources,
but generating enough smoke to tell us we should be cognizant of lurking fire.
part of this four part planned series will give you warning about a figure presently
revered in Tea Party, Constitutionalist and Patriot circles. He is General Paul A. Vallely. In 1980 in his role as a military person in
charge of “PsyOp” and military intelligence circles, he commissioned
self-confessed Satanist. Lt.
Colonel Michael Aquino to co-author a study with him. Both
were inspired by another military New Ager, Lt. Col. John Alexander who wrote
his enthusiastic 1980 paper, Beam
Spock. This proposed using New Age
tactics and practices as a cost effective method in the United States Army. All this took place before there was any
suspicion that a backlash might develop to the New Age Movement. I personally did not discover the existence
of the New Age Movement until 1981 and my book on the subject that also
included some military developments was released in mid 1983.
Vallely released in 2014 and 2015 statements to his followers claiming that not until AFTER this (1980-1981) did he learn of Michael
Aquino’s Satanism. General Vallely tells
his followers that he (Vallely) was the one who investigated and discovered
Aquino’s Satanism – post 1980. He then
says that there was nothing that could be done.
Satanism was a recognized religion in the United States Military and as
such protected under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. Besides, Aquino was a brilliant man and had
done fine military intelligence work, per Vallely.
military intelligence work included a self-publicized trip to Himmler’s SS
castle where Aquino while on a US Military trip to inspect NATO bases went
inside to meditate and invoke the same demons propelling World War II Nazi
forces. Aquino called this the “Welwelsburg

relationship. This was part of my Constance Cumbey’s NEW AGE MONITOR, Vol. 1,

New Age developments in the United States military. You may have this newsletter from me free of

her own book and made it freely available in the public domain, the need for
confidentiality no longer exists.
subject is once again critical because General Vallely and his associates have
injected themselves into the Tea Party Movement. They are using extreme incitement techniques
that have included forming Platoons and backing a planned but fizzled
“Operation American Spring” (a 10 million man 2014 march on Washington) that they publicly hoped would include camping out by these massed forces until they brought the government
down. Then they would have convened military tribunals to try and punish Congressional, Judicial
and Executive Forces that were brought down by this hoped for revolution that
would emulate the Arabic Spring operation that brought down Egypt and several
other Middle East governments.
the radical center, General Vallely has recently announced that he is forming a
group of retired American generals (LEGACY) to advise all Presidential candidates on
national security needs. Noble as the
thought may appear, it appears to this seasoned but cynical eye that regardless which candidate wins, General Vallely and his forces would also win.
And since General Vallely has obviously lied about his timeline and role
with Michael Aquino, ex-leading member of Anton Szandor LaVey’s Church of Satan
and founder of the even more radicalized Temple of Set, the American people
have a right to know of the possible more sinister forces being employed under an allegedly patriotic banner.
