Wikileaks – Where is the Case Against Assange?


The case against Julian Assange is all about exposing the truth that goes on behind the curtain. There has NEVER been any allegation that the information he has released was false. Even the emails from the Democrats that they blame on hacking by Russians have NEVER been denied as fake. All of the information that has been released is REAL.

So where is the crime? The crime is that the people have no right to know what the government is doing illegally. It is why Snowden is in Russia. These people are threats to the government — not the people. The Democrats protect a whistleblower when the leaked info supports a faction in the government. The government is NOT the sovereign of the nation, and that is clearly stated in the Constitution — We the People.

This begs the question: who is the real traitor

Hillary Refuses to Support Bernie & Dark Secrets of the Past


COMMENT: Marty, your writings are always ahead of the curve and your sources are amazing. Just read today Hillary gave an interview and she is obviously trying to stay in the mix. She came out and said about Bernie Sanders: ”He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done. He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.”

HB

REPLY: She wants to be the first woman president and that has always been her goal. It was the reason she married Bill. All my sources have always made it very clear she has been the driving force behind Bill. She has tolerated his countless women because she is really a lesbian and it has been all about power. Some younger women hate her. They call her a “feminine nazi” who has hated men. It was Madeline Albright who had the audacity to say there was a “special place in hell” for women who don’t support Clinton. She expects women to vote for her just because she is a woman regardless of her political positions.

I have known women politicians like Maggie Thatcher. NEVER was there any emphasis that she was qualified because she was a woman. It was always about the issues – NEVER about gender. Hillary has NEVER gotten beyond the ’60s. She relives it every day in her world. It is well known that Bill Clinton lives in New York and Hilliary Clinton lives in DC where they collectively own separate residences. Now they only appear together in official capacities because the Clinton’s have a political partnership, not a marriage. Gennifer Flowers revealed in an interview that would ONLY be published in London, that she and Bill would have been together now if it wasn’t for Chelsea. She reported that Bill confided in her that Hillary was bisexual.

When they first got in the White House, a friend of mine who was the former chairman of the Republicans for Ronald Regan in a state, called me to tell me that a Secret Service agent had walked in on the second floor in the White House and caught Hillary in bed with another woman. She picked up an ashtray and threw it at him hitting him in the head. It was just a few weeks in the White House. I did not believe it and asked if this was what I was going to have to listen to for the next 4 years? He said this came directly from the Secret Service. I still did not believe it. Then I read a small piece on the incident. Hillary’s conduct with other women in the White House was indeed coming from the Secret Service and the rumor mill was overflowing so much that the Secret Service was warned to keep their mouths shut.

The interesting aspect is that these stories would make the print, but typically OUTSIDE the USA – not within.

In America, Women and Men Earn Equal Pay for Equal Work


Certain media outlets are giving fawning coverage to “Equal Pay Day,” a “public awareness event” invented by the National Committee on Pay Equity to “illustrate the gap between men’s and women’s wages.” This group claims that women earn much less than men because of “discrimination.”

Parroting that storyline, NBC News published an article entitled “What Is Equal Pay Day? Here’s Everything You Need to Know.” Penned by Shira Tarlo, this article states that:

  • women make “77 cents for every dollar that men earn.”
  • Republican Senators and Donald Trump have blocked measures to solve this problem.
  • “Equal Pay Day is a reminder that despite some progress, the wage gap persists, and women have ways to go when it comes to economic equality.”

Likewise, Brett Molina of USA Today reports: “On average, women are paid about 80% of what men are paid. To reach pay parity, women will have to wait until 2119, according to AAUW [American Association of University Women]. If you are a woman of color, that gap is even wider.”

Many other journalists, activists, celebrities, and politicians are making similar claims, but the facts are clear that women in the United States earn the same compensation as men for doing the same work. On average, full-time, year-round female workers earn about 20% less cash wages than males, but when four factors relating to equal work and pay are taken in account, all or nearly all of this gap disappears. These four factors are:

  • Full-time male workers average 6% more workdays per year and 5% more workhours per workday than full-time female workers.
  • Males typically have more work experience and are more likely to pursue technically demanding and higher-paying careers, such as computer science and finance.
  • More than 28% of U.S. workers are in physically challenging occupations (like construction), and most men have considerably more muscular strength than most women.
  • Women are more apt to take jobs that offer higher fringe benefits in exchange for less cash wages.

Various studies that have attempted to account for some—but not all—of these factors have found:

  • “Once we control for outside factors the wage gap between men and women shrinks considerably. Now women earn typical pay that is on average 98% of the typical pay for men by major. Occasionally, women may even earn more. Therefore, when looking at gender-specific pay by major for a controlled sample, the wage gap all but disappears.”
    – PayScale, 2009
  • “[A]fter we controlled for all the factors included in our analysis that we found to affect earnings, college-educated women working full time earned an unexplained 7 percent less than their male peers did one year out of college.”
    – American Association of University Women, 2012
  • “Our analysis of the gender pay gap is the first to include fringe benefits in a comprehensive measure of compensation for men and women. The results show that including fringe benefits makes a considerable difference in the analysis of earnings differentials. In fact, we conclude that any measure of earnings that excludes fringe benefits may produce misleading results as to the existence, magnitude, consequence, and source of market discrimination. For our sample of working men and women between the ages of 26 and 34 in 1990, the average female wage rate was 87.4% of the average male wage rate; but when an index of total compensation is used, the estimate rises to 96.4% of male compensation.”
    – Industrial Labor Relations Review, 1995

Per a 2009 analysis of gender wage studies conducted for the U.S. Department of Labor by CONSAD Research Corporation:

It is not possible to produce a reliable quantitative estimate of the aggregate portion of the raw gender wage gap for which the explanatory factors that have been identified account. Nevertheless, it can confidently be concluded that, collectively, those factors account for a major portion and, possibly, almost all of the raw gender wage gap.

Deceiving the Public

The National Committee on Pay Equity asserts that a 2003 study by U.S. General Accounting Office “found a 20 percent earnings gap between women and men that could not be explained, even when accounting for demographic and work-related factors such as occupation, industry, race, marital status and job tenure. This gap is attributable to discrimination; certain jobs pay less simply because they are held by women and people of color.” To the contrary, this study explicitly states:

Due to inherent limitations in the survey data and in statistical analysis, we cannot determine whether this remaining [wage] difference is due to discrimination or other factors that may affect earnings. For example, some experts said that some women trade off career advancement or higher earnings for a job that offers flexibility to manage work and family responsibilities.

The study goes on to detail that it does not account for:

  • “fringe benefits—most importantly, health insurance and pension coverage.”
  • “job characteristics such as flexibility that men and women may value differently.”
  • “education quality or field of study, such as college major.”
  • “cognitive ability or measures of social skills, all of which may affect earnings.”

The National Committee on Pay Equity does not even link to this study, which is unsurprising given how it distorts it. Yet, instead of exposing this deception, many media outlets are serving as mouthpieces to amplify it.

Stirring Up Racial Strife

The same reporters and media outlets are also echoing the rhetoric of the National Committee on Pay Equity about wages and race. For example, NBC News claims: “While women across all races and ethnicities lag behind those of white men, as well as men in their own racial or ethnic group, minority women face greater challenges in this regard. Data from a 2016 study illustrates that while white, non-Hispanic women make 83 cents for every dollar, Black women make 66 cents, and Hispanic women make 60 cents.”

Just as with gender, the facts are clear that people of all races in the United States earn the same compensation for doing the same work. Racial wage gaps can be traced to differences in work output due to factors like educationmarriagecareer choicesEnglish fluency, and skills in reading, writing and math.

People who falsely claim that discrimination is the cause of wage differences can stir up racial strife by fueling resentment and bitterness. Gallup polls conducted from 2001 to 2016 found that both blacks and whites felt that racial harmony reached an all-time modern low in 2015 and 2016.

Holding People Down

Another effect of false discrimination allegations is that they cultivate a victim mentality that prevents people from reaching their potential. A 2015 paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences investigated people’s views about freewill, or “the belief that they are responsible for their actions.” The study found that:

  • “freewill beliefs are intricately linked to basic motor processes critical to effective self-control.”
  • “discouraging a belief in freewill decreases activation in brain regions associated with intentional—and arguably goal-directed—action.”
  • “belief in freewill appears critical to individuals’ ability to overcome the temptation to engage in self-detrimental and antisocial behavior.”
  • “hallmark indicators of self-control are the abilities for individuals to regulate their attention and to persist at challenging tasks.”

In sum, the facts show that much rhetoric surrounding Equal Pay Day slanders employers who have done no wrong, stokes gender and racial hostility, and hinders people from being successful.

Media Predicted Carnage Fail – Virginia Lobby Day Second Amendment Rally Peaceful…


Approximately 22,000 second amendment supporters rallied at the Richmond, Virginia capitol today to petition state government not to infringe on the rights of law-abiding gun owners.

Appearing to cheer for some confrontation or violent outcome, the national media had hyped the event as a massive assembly of “right wing militia groups”; further attempting to inject a racial element around the MLK holiday by proclaiming “white separatists” would be squaring-off against Virginia law enforcement. It was all fake news.

Curtis Houck from the Media Research Center assembled a montage of CNN and MSNBC media reports from this morning to highlight how the national media attempted to set the narrative.

An incredible contrast of media nonsense against the reality, purpose and intent of a peaceful rally to petition state government for a constitutional right.

President Trump was correct on October 29th, 2018, when he shared:

Should Hillary Have Been President?


COMMENT: You just support Trump. Hillary won the popular vote and should be in the white house.

HB

REPLY: You seem to think that the popular vote should pick the president. I am certain if it had been the other way you be against the popular vote. The system was designed to prevent the tyranny of one state dominating the rest, which is what took place in Europe. Merkel unilaterally opened the gates to “Syrian Refugees” and that decision she made herself without a vote, even by the German people. She alone has decided the fate of all of Europe. That is how the political decisions of one state can impose tyranny upon all others in the union.

You are also probably unaware the Hillary also beat Obama in the Democratic primaries. The Democratic nomination for the 2008 election was interesting for Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, but ultimately Obama won more unpledged delegates and therefore the nomination. The delegates made the choice personally, not the people. Did they want to have the first black president or woman? They chose Obama for they believed he would gain them the victory for all the black voters would come out for him but not her.

Even that did not really work for during the actual presidential election of 2008, Obama won only 52.9% of the popular vote. There was no landslide which they were looking for. Obama agreed to give Hillary the State Department, which she turned into a money-making scheme to appease her since she had also won the popular vote in the primaries.

Personally, I prefer a NON-CAREER politician. It does not matter what party they reside in, for it will always be them against us.

Video Walkthrough of Richmond, Virginia, Showing Sketchy Caged Protest Area…


Previous discussion HERE.

Virginia government officials have made extensive preparations ahead of tomorrow’s planned Second Amendment “Lobby Day” protests.  Earlier today a videographer named Stephen B walked through the capitol grounds to highlight the extensive fencing assembled by authorities.  Some slightly salty language:

Additionally, the Virginia State Police are taking the planned protest quite seriously. In a Twitter video below law enforcement show up at a man’s home, 100 miles from the venue, to question him based on a “tip”, and suspecting some thought crimes may be committed.

Virginia Demorats Want to Take Your Guns


Virginia is for Gun grabbers?

Governor “Blackface” Northam and his fellow Democrats in Virginia continue to roll ahead with their Soros and Bloomberg-backed gun control plans, which are a direct violation of our Second Amendment.

I was encouraged that Trump spoke out on the issue and came down firmly on the side of the patriots who want to protect their right to own firearms. This includes semi-automatic rifles, which are not ‘assault weapons’ as the Democrats claim.

Trump tweeted, Your 2nd Amendment is under very serious attack in the Great Commonwealth of Virginia. That’s what happens when you vote for Democrats; they will take your guns away. Republicans will win Virginia in 2020. Thank you, Dems!”

Perhaps the Democrats want to spark a Civil War in the hopes that public opinion will turn against the president. They are playing with fire. When tyrants create laws to remove our rights, it’s time to remove the tyrants.

Beware Virginia – A Remarkable Confluence of Events…


There is a remarkable confluence of data-points surrounding a second amendment rally in Virginia this holiday weekend that bear a strong note of caution.  Something akin to an astroturf event appears in the background.  ♦ Data-points:

♦ Billionaire Michael Bloomberg is running for President.  Bloomberg has funded the majority of Virginia anti-gun legislators who are now proposing considerable restrictions on lawful gun ownership in the commonwealth.

♦ It is also worth noting in the wake of the astro-turfed Charlottesville narrative, the professional political messaging of the Democrat apparatus, via Joe Biden, proclaimed in April 2019 that Charlottesville represented “the battle for the soul of this nation.”

If there is one consistent aspect to DNC activists (Occupy Wall Street, Antifa etc.), it’s that they use the same playbook.

♦ Provoking civil unrest to achieve political objectives is a well known strategy of the Alinsky wing of the apparatus.  ie. “never let a crisis go to waste”; and they are very good at creating the appearance of an organic crisis.  It’s usually in hindsight when the astroturf originating the crisis is identified.

The reason the Antifa mob was able to attack the peaceful marchers was ONLY because the Charlottesville Police were ordered to stand down by the far-left Democratic Mayor and Governor (link)

As it was noted in the Charlottesville example, the authorities in Virginia purposefully funneled two activist groups together to create the conflict and crisis (‘Unite the Right’ and Antifa).  Consider the possibility of the same play-book being deployed this weekend for the second amendment rally at the Virginia capitol.

Situational Awarness – Take a look at how the authorities in Virginia have literally used chain link fences to fenced-in the current demonstration venue.  One entrance, few exits:

The Virginia state Capitol building is surrounded by fencing, Thursday, Jan. 16, 2020 in Richmond, Va., in preparation for Monday’s rally by gun rights advocates. Gov. Ralph Northam on Wednesday, Jan. 15, announced a state of emergency and banned all weapons from the rally at the Capitol. (Hoffmeyer/Richmond Times-Dispatch via AP)

♦ Also, keep in mind how the national media are framing this: “Virginia has become Ground Zero in the nation’s raging debate over gun control.”

Just as the national media did with the “far-right” -vs- “Antifa” for the Charlottesville example, there is a much larger national narrative overlay being deployed.

♦ Also as noted in 2017, getting President Trump involved in the controversy is a way to keep the story on a national scale and politicize the crisis.  This is a presidential election year, and Democrats are attempting to converge a multitude of social issues for maximum electoral benefit.

♦ VA is an easy and convenient state for political narrative engineering.  The geography of Northern Virginia to DC planning headquarters; in combination with a massive media apparatus in close proximity; has made many Virginia events become national stories.

♦ Establish the narrative to be engineered by the Astroturf:

[…]  Virginia’s solicitor general, Toby Heytens, told Richmond Circuit Court Judge Joi Taylor on Thursday that law enforcement had identified “credible evidence” that armed out-of-state groups planned to come to Virginia with the possible intention of participating in a “violent insurrection.” (link)

♦ Identify who in the Trump orbit is telling POTUS to keep tweeting about the Virginia event, (yesterday and today) and there’s a strong possibility that person is a Judas Goat.

♦ President Trump is being drawn into the engineering.

♦ Former Robert Mueller special counsel lead FBI investigative supervisory special agent David Archey; a man who had to know -by design of the investigation itself- that the FBI was being used for a corrupt political operation; is now the head of the FBI field office in Richmond, Virginia.

A remarkable confluence of events.

Something is going to take place.

What that ‘something’ might be is yet unknown.

However, whatever it is, President Trump is unfortunately now attached to it.

[…]  Because of the threat of possible violence, organizers of an annual vigil for victims of gun violence — usually held on the King holiday each year — said Friday that they have canceled their event this year.

“Given the serious concerns about possible violence on Monday, we recognize that we can not guarantee the safety of the brave gun violence prevention activists and survivors who have fought so hard for this day,” said Lori Haas, state director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence.  (link)

Dangerous Communists Loud-Mouths!


The Democrat Party is A Clear and Present Danger to our Nation

I watched the latest Democratic debate with a bit of weariness. I knew what they were going to say in advance and they all said it. Each of them suffered from Trump Derangement Syndrome—even Amy Klobuchar, who is due back at the Senate for the impeachment trial—and her mind is already made up. They all think the president is a danger to the country. 

Democrat’s Always Project- James Carville appeared on MSNBC’s Hardball and stated:

“Trumpism is the greatest threat this country has faced since the fall of communism” and Republicans cannot ever be trusted to “save the United States.”

If you replace Trumpism with the Democrat party, Carville gets it right.

The 2020 Democrats all agree on the climate change narrative. Even the so-called ‘moderate,’ Joe Biden, favors the Green New Deal. Shutting down the fossil fuel industries would cost hundreds of thousands of blue collar jobs. The same blue collar workers that Joe claims love and support him. A total restructuring of the nation’s economy doesn’t sound moderate to me, but apparently the left is the new moderate in the Democrat Party.

On the far left we have the shrill Elizabeth Warren (aka Pocahontas) who wants free health care and higher wages for all, free college, free day care and prescription medicines and oh—she wants to lower our national debt while doing it.

The old communist Bernie Sanders brings up the far, far left. He might call what he’s pushing ‘Democratic Socialism,’ but his goal has always remained the same. Everything will be free and everything will belong to a gigantic government with a labyrinth of bureaus and ministries, which he and his comrades would control. This is of course a recipe for disaster. If people get free stuff regardless of how hard they might work, well, eventually they’ll stop working hard. To make people work harder, communist governments often resort to force. Stalin used fear, gulags, and executions. Regardless, in his quest for equality, Bernie would make sure everyone is equally poor.

The crazy commie admired the old Soviet Union, Castro, and supported the Sandinistas in Nicaragua. Some of his staffers even think gulags and reeducation camps will be good for Trump supporters. A failed carpenter in his younger days, Bernie worked hard only at running his mouth. Now he leads the field going into the Iowa caucuses early next month. The lure of free stuff remains strong among the ignorant. Someone needs to remind them that nothing is free and freedom must be fought for.

I will fight against Bernie with cartoons. He is a true danger to the country.

The Decline & Fall of Religion?


In truth, everything has its cycle. There is no escaping this reality upon which the entire universe was created. There has been a steady decline in church membership which has been consistent with perhaps the politically correct movement with the broader societal trends that also manifest in the declining church attendance. There appears to be a rising trend of an increasing proportion of Americans with no religious preference which is strikingly similar to the decline in religion which took place within the Roman Empire.

Indeed, Constantine’s (309-337AD) decision to decriminalize Christianity within the Roman Empire was a turning point for religious change cyclically. It was the year 313AD, when Constantine and Licinius issued the Edict of Milan decriminalizing Christian worship. Constantine thus became a great patron of Christianity but keep in mind his mother, Helena, was a devout Christian.  She searched all the holy places and constructed churches over them from where Christ was born to where he was crucified.

Note that the medallion pictured here showed Constantine with Sol, the sun god. The cult of Sol was becoming the supreme god even among the pagans – Sol Invictus (invincible sun because it roise every day no matter what). Constantine had set a precedent for the position of the Christian emperor within the Church and raised the notions of orthodoxy, Christendom, ecumenical councils, and the state church of the Roman Empire was officially declared by edict in 380AD. However, Constantine was not really such a devout believer. He adopted Christianity because the movement was rising substantially when people prayed to the pagan golds and nothing happened. The Christians exploited that and argued that the reason their pagan protectors failed was because they did not exist. The pagans, on the other hand, persecuted Christians because the barbarian invasions and the fall of the Roman Empire was taking place because the gods were angry at the Christians.

Constantine sought to be the sole emperor. He really wages civil war. He took a risk to move against Maxentius’ forces which greatly outnumbered his own. Constantine descended through the Genevre Pass and entered Italy. Several battles were fought as Constantine neared Rome itself. The final battle came on October 28th, 312 AD at Milvian Bridge. It was this battle where Constantine I claimed to have had a vision of Christ and marched against Maxentius under the Christian symbol of the cross. Despite the biased historical accounts, the Battle of Milvian Bridge was less of a battle between Christianity and paganism as it was a battle for power and control. While Maxentius may have been a pagan, he did not persecute the Christians and in fact built the first Christian church in Rome. Many of his own troops were Christians. No doubt, Constantine realized that placing the cross on the shield of his army would disrupt his opposing force. Many were Christian and were reluctant to kill a fellow Christian. It was a brilliant move.

Maxentius-Basilica

Historians have written much of the Battle of Milvian Bridge. It has been characterized as the battle between Christianity and Paganism. As Maxentius’ troops began to retreat across a temporary bridge constructed upon boats, Maxentius fell into the water when the bridge collapsed along with thousands of his troops. His armor proved too heavy and thus he drowned in the waters of the Tiber. That ended the battle.

It is not certain when Jesus Christ was actually born. The census that is the story of having to travel to Bethlehem was actually the Census of Quirinius which took place in 6AD after Herod I the Great had died and the Romans were dividing Judaea into thirds among Herod’s sons. There is no actual evidence of Herod issuing an order to kill the firstborn males when in fact he clearly died about 10 years before. Such an order would have to have been issued by one of his sons, yet there is no surviving evidence to support that as fact.

Nevertheless, our model does place a turning point about late 3AD when most scholars agree that Jesus was born based primarily upon the Census of Quirinius. We then have in 312AD the victory of Milvian Bridge by Constantine the Great who then decrees that Christianity will be the state religion primarily so he got to plunder all the wealth of pagan temples. It is rather stunning how we come to major religious events every 309.6 years. This appears to be a change in beliefs that do not necessarily suggest complete changes in religions. Often these are shifts that become more fundamentalist in their beliefs or a turn toward liberalism.

There are two primary cycles. First we can look at the cycle of change in religion which seems to follow the 309.6 year cycle which is, of course, the 8.6-year frequency. The second is to look at the derivative of the 8.6-year which produces a target for a major collapse in religion, which is underway at this time, by 2033.

From the Battle of the Milvian Bridge which took place between the Roman Emperors Constantine I and Maxentius on the 28th day of October 312AD (312.824), it was 309.6 years until the rise of Islam. At the age of 40 in 610AD, Muhammad is said to have received his first verbal revelation in the cave called Hira.

This was the beginning of the writing of the Quran that continued up to the end of his life. There was also the persecution of the newly converted Muslims like there had been among the Christians. Muhammad and his followers migrated to Medina in 622AD, an event known as the Hegira and the birth of the Islam calendar (622.298).

The next cycle produced the target where we see the beginning of pilgrimages to the Middle East during the 10th century. The belief that the world would end come the year 1,000 was very prominent, so much so that the English King Aethelred II (978-1016AD) replaced his image on the coinage with the symbol of Christianity – the lamb. We seem to fear whole even numbers like the 2000 Y2K bug which was going to destroy all computers.

The next target was 1241 which was the year of the Great Mongol Invasion. Poland fell to the Mongols that year who are eventually beaten back. We also see in this cycle was a new trend of Antipopes when France seized the Catholic Church and installed French popes as puppets of the French king that became known as the Avignon Papacy. This was the period from 1309 to 1376 during which seven successive popes resided in Avignon. The Seventh Crusade was a crusade led by Louis IX of France from 1248 to 1254. This was the cycle that we see Constantinople fall to the Turks in 1453.

The next cycle turning point began in 1551 when the Council of Trent reconvened to deal with the Protestant Reformation. This cycle also marks the attempt of Islam to conquer Europe and impose Islam as the state religion. The invading army was the new Ottoman Empire, which was defeated at the Battle of Vienna which took place on the 12th of September 1683 after the imperial city had been besieged by the Ottoman Empire for two months. The peak of that cycle arrives 212 years from the beginning. That was 1763 and the start of George II restrictions placed upon Americans which led to the American Revolution, which was also about the freedom of religion.

This brings us to 1860 and this is the beginning of the American Civil War, which was rooted in a religious question concerning slavery. This current cycle will reach its peak in 2072 and the next will begin in 2170. We are clearly moving toward a clash of philosophies both within Christianity as well as among different religious foundations. As we move into that major turning point, we will see rising discontent and religious confrontation engulf the world. In the USA, we have the liberal v conservative confrontation which is also incorporating the religious right and anti-abortion movements v women’s liberation factions. They see this as plain and simple – thous shalt not kill. Yet this is inconsistent with the idea of war itself. Perhaps it is ok to kill someone if the government tells you to do it?

This is part of the religious cycle as well. We will also see the conflict between Christianity and Islam build in Europe. This will be no different from the anti-immigration movement that surged into gun battles on the streets of Philadelphia during the economic depression that followed the Sovereign Debt Defaults by states during the 1840s. As the economic decline picks up speed from 2018 into 2020, the tensions against immigration will only rise. This is also behind the separatist movements in Europe.

 

 

While we are currently in the Seventh Wave 309.6-year cycle following the birth of Christ, from a pure cyclical perspective, the next turning point in 2072 may be a significant religious change. What comes, can only be subject to speculation. We have completed six waves of 309.6 years. The Seventh is where major change and conflict will be unleashed. However, if we just look at Christianity, from the Edit of 313AD decriminalizing this religion, then 2 x 8.6 = 17.2. Therefore, 1720 years from 313AD brings us to 2033 which aligns with the Sixth Wave of the ECM – 2032.

Further confirmation that we are in a major Private Wave is that the belief systems also shifts not merely away from government (Public v Private) but also from formalized religion and even sports. The evidence is very clear that church memberships have been declining. The various church membership data reflected the steady decline from the 76% level to the 50% level. There has been rising discontent even within the Catholic Church over the left-wing statement of Pope Francis. He has been alienating many Catholics. He has adopted the climate change agenda and supported the United Nations in this anti-industrialization movement. He has also adopted the Piketty argument against capitalism supporting the Marxist view of economic inequality. Many feel he has abandoned the faith since one of the Ten Commandments is thou shall not covert what other people have. This has led many to question if he is not just expressing his personal beliefs disguised as religion.

What is clear is that under Pope Francis, the finances of the Church has been declining significantly. Some argue it is due to his political statements that are not grounded in religion. There is a rather famous Italian investigative journalist, Gianluigi Nuzzi, whose new book, Universal Judgmentis the latest in a string of reveling dispatches on financial crises which he has helped to uncover within the church. In his latest book, he warns that the Vatican will run out of funds by 2023. Certainly, the attendance is declining sharply. His previous book, Merchants in the Temple, focused on the internal corruption in the Vatican bank.
