Social Unrest by 2023. Why in America?

Writing about the future is not always easy . I have a hunch based on the now , where we might be heading . Starting off from my blog post called (  " Madam President I presume ......" 12,23,14) (7)> That Hillary R Clinton won the Presidential election of 2016 . (4)>  I am going to focus here on America , not as much less the world . I am assuming that from 2015 onward we will continue to see news reports of strife , mass shootings , cop shootings , terrorism , earthquakes and economic uncertainty, Again, under Obama we have seen a very slow, anemic, but at least steady recovery. A long-term economic recovery, even if slow, is enough to keep this key. Even if there is a sudden recession during the (6)>  2016 campaign, this will probably remain true. . While things will continue to happen as they always do . It will be up to us to make those changes and not be caught up in the illusion that all is well until you see who or what is actually running (ruining) your government

. SOCIAL UNREST .Violence. Rioting. Looting. Economic collapse and civil unrest. This isn’t a dystopian movie plot, but something else according to an economist with a good track record for prognostication: America’s dark future. (1)>  It's coming in the next decade the 2020's . That's why need to pay attention to this, and how it came about.  In speculation it's January 2017 . ## Mrs. Clinton is president , and congress has on both seats of Republican's and Democrat's full of  women representatives . It's the largest ever in American history , the 2014 midterm elections first brought many women of both parties to Washington D.C. .  & they won seats . the rule of the matriarchs began in America  . ***For the FIRST time the DOW hit over 20,000.  The Market was strong while the economic situation was weak . (2)>  By 2017 the banks were back  again slipping in the loan sub primes , it was a repeat of 2008 , when  the housing market hit the roof with " UN affordability" .
By 2023 . The Shanty towns appear outside
of the City of  Los Angeles  with over
 a million people homeless.

 (8)>Trust me a 600,000 to 800,000 dollar one story "family home" out west by 2020 will cost over 1.5 million dollars . The key here is that while Wall Street (1%) continued to make profits , the so called "middle class" was hit . The 100,000 dollar salaries could no longer keep up with inflation . ANY ONE earning over one million dollars in 2020 was able survive.  I base this economic view on the statistics of inflation ,wages . Comparatively those who earn hourly ( 10 dollars an hour in 2020 minimum wage increase ) will still be poor in America . Many of them will be unable to afford rent .  (3) >In the 2020's America's first shanty towns appear .  Many full of poor illegal immigrants .Silicon Valley’s answer to Shantytowns? Diaspora-Ville. Sim City Refugee Camp? Fun little game controlling who gets the penicillin, which granny croaks, and whose dog gets cooked for dinner? Watch as the disease takes over. Who is in the hoard that will come out blazing with AK-47? Sounds like a plan? Sounds like an app? Sounds like the new gigabyte game of the decade. Crime is so bad that many of the upper scale Americans will be living in guarded "gated" communities . While most cities will have heavily armed police in armored vehicles patrolling . I know it seems like something out fiction , but the trends now are pointing to a vary scary future for Americans . The Great American Depression, by Ashley Walker, PhD, the book chronicles an almost decade long upswing in clinical depression, paranoia, schizophrenia, and phobias among the US population at large. Walker is quick to blame “…the glorification of fear in our society; from radical Islam who carry out acts of immense violence to state their religious and political beliefs, to a cable news media who would say the sky is falling if it meant people paid attention. This drives us to high school students having heart attacks, thousands of schizophrenia developments, and a disturbing lack of empathy and trust for Americans of all races and economic backgrounds. The only response we have to this is to sit and wait to be literally scared to death.” The book, initially released solely on e-reader formats, sells very well, topping e-reader sales charts and quickly warranting a print run.  ANOTHER economic  killer was  (5) >Mrs. President Clinton's 2018 Tax increase , sure enough she tried to follow her husband on what he did back in the 1990's . Mr. Clinton had the brains back then when the American economy was recovering , and it was easy . BUT in 2018 it was nothing but a sticker shock , many taxes for people across the United States hit over 10.95 % increase . Wages were taxed more  and so were American's  own bank accounts . Loss of the American dream is probably one of the causes of the coming social unrest . In short, anger, protests, riots and other forms of violence have engulfed cities all across the United States in the 2020's . Years of authoritarianism, a stagnant economy, and police brutality among many other issues are coming to a head, regardless of what one thinks about the methods or even the merits of some of the protesters/rioters.  So I write this as a wake up call. I admit that I took liberties to write this . The future can go many paths . I hope that the American people take action to preserve their own democracy and not let it erode because of civil unrest and future elected leaders.
 In 2023 America's homeless people take to
the street in a series of nation wide
protests that turn violent.

##  Let the preparations begin for the coronation of Mrs Clinton as the 45th President of the United States.………………..And why not?You can be sure that THE VAST RIGHT WING CONSPIRACY is preparing its talking points for the next round of anti-democratic political hate speech to unleash against any potential Democrat who may become president.In the New GOP, Democrats have no moral right to govern and any action that is legal will be used to vilify and obstruct Democrats who will not agree to Republican demands. Impeachment, used once in more than 200 years of Constitutional government, is now a standard tool to be utilized against any Democrat in the White House. There is also a issue that Mrs. Clinton could end up much like husband did in scandal . *** PAY CLOSE attention to the DOW . If it hits 20,000 or over it's not a good sign ( it means some one just got rich )  , but a warning . (1)> The FUTURE is all but speculation , but it can be written here  (2)> Obama is now presiding over a $10 trillion bank bailout, all money down a rat hole. Meanwhile, Obama's so-called anti-foreclosure program is an incentive payment bonanza for predatory subprime lenders - the Angelo Mozillos of Countrywide and their ilk, who sold subprime Adjustable Rate Mortgages which should have been illegal all along. Want to stop foreclosures? It's easy: pass a law making foreclosure on any primary residence, family farm, or business a federal crime -- for five years, or for the duration of the depression, whichever is longer. Put a family out on the street, shut down a farm, close a factory, and the banker goes to Leavenworth. Start with the great foreclosers --  Dimon of JP Morgan, Pandit the Bandit of Citibank, Lewis of Bank of America, Blankfein of Goldman Sachs, and the other zombie bankers. Don't let them destroy Detroit, Toledo, Stockton, or any other American city.(3)> IN REALITY the FIRST SHANTY TOWNS are happening now , see It’s reminiscent of the Hoovervilles of the Great Depression and as our current depression worsens, and Americans lose the ability to pay their mortgages or buy food, we’re going to see more of this".  (4)>Peter Turchin, an ecologist, evolutionary biologist and mathematician at the University of Connecticut. compiled historical data about violent incidents in U.S. history between 1780 and 2010, including riots, terrorism, assassinations and rampages. The data indicates that a cycle of violence repeats itself every 50 years in America, like a wave that peaks in every other generation. This short-term cycle is superimposed over another, longer-term oscillation that repeats every 200 to 300 years. The slower waves in violence can either augment or suppress the 50-year peaks, depending on how the two cycles overlap.If Turchin's model is right, then the current polarization and inequality in American society will come to a head in 2020. (5)> Taxation is one of the civil evils in our century . We pay taxes to the government and never really get anything back since our money is used , shipped to help other foreign nations . Sadly, it is the honest, hard working Americans in the middle class that always get hit the hardest.  The tax code is absolutely riddled with loopholes that big corporations and the ultra-wealthy use to minimize their tax burdens as much as possible.  Many poor people do not pay any income taxes at all.  The dishonest are rewarded for cheating on their taxes (if they can get away with it) and the ultra-wealthy have moved trillions of dollars to offshore tax havens where they can avoid U.S. taxation altogether. Our system is incredibly unfair to the millions of hard working people in the middle class and upper middle class that drag themselves out of bed and go to work each day and try to do the right thing.  In addition, the current U.S. tax system is incredibly inefficient, it diverts a tremendous amount of resources away from more valuable economic activities, and it has chased thousands of businesses and trillions of dollars out of the United States. (6)> I'd be surprised if we make it to 2016 at this rate. With any luck, when the collapse comes, Americans will be educated enough to know who caused it (banksters/globalists/politicians) and how to fix it (legitimate limited government/legitimate money). (7)> ANOTHER less exiting fact about having Mrs. Clinton as president is her constant flip flopping in the years 2017-2019 . Mrs. Clinton won the election because she was a woman , just as much as Mr. Obama winning because he was black . Feminist chose her over Sarah Palin in 2008 . She also "claimed" be a feminist ,  has made it perfectly clear: she’s a feminist and she has no problem with letting the world know. Women flocked.  Her first line of attack as a "Moderate Democrat " was the legalization of Marijuana . So many voters were mislead that she would jump on the band wagon as the first American President to push for legalization , instead she turned to the right on getting tough on drugs and "renewing the drug war" . The States of Colorado , Oregon, California and Washington  ( many other states that voted for legalization ) soon found the Feds , and the SWAT police busting the doors on the cultivators , and medicinal marijuana users . In stilling fear in Americans as the police state takes it's shape. ( 8)> Affordability of  housing is what keeps a society in balance , the end of poverty should be first tackled by government . If the "American Dream" is gone , so goes the nation .

The LOST GOSPEL . My Overview.

 Here is my pseudo -scientific
Gospel analysis .
It's Christmas time . Time to blow the lid off something . This holiday season a new and sensational book is out that claims that Jesus led a secret married life . You are all familiar with the theme that has been so prevalent in  Dan Brown's books Da Vinci Code trilogy . (1)> You'll like this book , but for a fundamentalist die hard Christian it's a bit blasphemous ,Why would  it bother you so much if Jesus was married? To me whether he was married or not, is not his message. Trying to live a life in Christ is the message. If they are true … well, that would be devastating for Christianity. But to write anything about it in a scientific manner I'd really need something more then repeated claims.  ( I don't marginally repeat my self ). It's right in line with the <>  Gnostic Gospels .  A new theory is in that is a rewrite of all that's ever been speculated upon thankfully Simcha Jacobovici, an author and filmmaker who is famous for promoting stunning theories about Jesus that on further review often turn out to be dubious has set new claim.This is a story that has been around for centuries but was disavowed by early church fathers. Totally inconsistent with the purpose for which he came to earth. No different than the books written today that are false but still receive a lot of attention. Jacobovici’s new claim that he has decoded an old text that reveals (2)> Jesus and the Magdalene were married and had two kids (and she was a “co-deity” with her husband) came out this month and has also been widely dismissed. Called "The Lost Gospel," by  Jacobovici and York University Professor Barrie Wilson, bases its claim on the document dating back to 570 AD and written in Aramaic.  “There is now written evidence that Jesus was married to Mary the Magdalene and that they had children together. … Gathering dust in the British Library is a document that takes us into the missing years of Jesus’s life,” the book states. Disputed by many experts, the theory about Jesus' union with Mary Magdalene is perhaps best represented in works of fiction such as Nikos Kazantzakis' "The Last Temptation of Christ" and Dan Brown's (5)> "The Da Vinci Code."  There is really nothing new to the book , and first of ALL  I Like to say to all the READERS of the Dan Brown books and those who ascribe various new age beliefs about Mary Magalene .(4)>  THERE IS NO MYSTERY.There's a secret code, they ( Jacobovici & Wilson )  say, buried in the ancient words of a 1,500-year-old manuscript and they say in their book and an upcoming documentary, they've cracked that code. The Text is a Hellenistic work called  ***' Joseph and Asneath Many scholars are skeptical. For instance, the name Jesus never actually appears in that ancient text. There is simply no evidence in this text or anywhere else that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene, much less that they had a couple of children.  Mary of Magdala. No trustworthy source has ever been found for this tradition, and there are two good reasons for saying that this was not Mary Magdalene: 1. She is introduced soon after ( Luke 8:2 ) as a new character and also as a woman of wealth and consequence. See also Matthew 27:55 Jesus had delivered her from the possession of seven demons. But there is no connection between sin and demon-possession. This  Gospel account gives us a great puzzle that has been the exact rift between Judaism and Christianity . Jesus's own relationship with women have been a mystery , sure enough he did have female disciples that were written out of the bible , but were interwoven later in the rest of the Letter's of Paul . The Book of Revelation describes the marriage of the Lamb for instance which hints as the final secret that Jesus was married to a flesh and blood women and not a organization ( church) "Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. Marriage Supper of the Lamb - Revelation 19 v.9 Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear." No Christian would accept it as literal , or otherwise fanciful.

The Real Jesus was Jewish .
Exactly, Jesus was circumcised. He celebrated Yom Kippur and Hanukkah. He celebrated Passover. Humans dropped these practices from Christianity, and much more. Who even says Christ would agree with what is modern Pauline Christianity? Christianity kept much of Jewish thought. It's based on Judaism. Ever heard of the Golden Rule? It's Jewish. Ever heard of the concept of heaven? It's Jewish. The messiah is a Jewish concept. Duh. The last supper may have been a seder.Jesus no where calls himself 'God' he's often  praying to his father whom he claimed was the Jewish god. but the worshiper's of Jesus have deified him through out the rest of the new Testament . Creating vary conflicting scriptures .Early Christians were mostly Jewish by birth. Later there was disagreement about the Gentiles. But this was decided in 50 A.D. at the Council of Jerusalem. So, Thus far there's no disagreement that Jesus was a Jew or that His first followers were Jews. But you still refuse to see that this doesn't mean He meant for everyone to be Jewish.

The Real Lost Gospel .
If there is really a lost gospel not included in the New Testament it has to be the book of Didache, an early handbook of an anonymous Christian community, "is the most important book you've never heard of." It spells out a way of life for Jesus-followers, including how to show one another the love of God, how to practice the Eucharist, and how to take in wandering prophets.Likely written before many of the New Testament books, the missing books of the New Testament , most of them were written in Egypt which had a strong christian community out side of Judea . According to some estimates, early Christians wrote at least twenty gospels that weren't included in the bible. Many of these non-biblical gospels apparently disappeared later, although it's possible that copies of some of them still survive at unknown locations. Luckily, several that appeared to be missing have been found again in modern times. But some are still missing, and could be permanently lost.Gospels that were left out of the Bible are called non-canonical gospels. Many scholars also call them apocryphal gospels, because most of them have unknown origins. This uncertainty about their origins was one reason many of them were excluded from the Bible. But some were also excluded because they expressed unorthodox or heretical views.The only extant copy of this gospel was found in Egypt, but the time and place of its discovery are uncertain, and there are indications that it passed through the Egyptian black market at one stage.The existing copy is a Coptic text, probably a translation of a still-lost Greek original. Unfortunately the manuscript is damaged in many places, and some pages are missing, so that translation and interpretation are difficult. However, many scholars believe that it was a secret gospel used mostly by certain gnostic sects of Christians.This gospel is notable in that it may depict Judas Iscariot as the most loyal disciple of Jesus, and an innocent martyr instead of an evil betrayer. But because of the damage to the manuscript, and the difficulties of interpretation, there is some uncertainty about this matter. In any case, this is one of the later gospels, probably not written until the second century, and most scholars doubt that it contains any authentic information about the real Judas Iscariot.According to the Two Source Hypothesis accepted by a majority of contemporary scholars, the authors of Matthew and Luke each made use of two different sources: the Gospel of Mark and a non-extant second source termed Q. The siglum Q derives from the German word "Quelle," which means "Source." Q primarily consists of the "double tradition" material, that which is present in both Matthew and Luke but not Mark. However, Q may also contain material that is preserved only by Matthew or only by Luke (called "Sondergut") as well as material that is paralleled in Mark (called Mark/Q overlaps). Although the temptation story and the healing of the centurion's son are usually ascribed to Q, the majority of the material consists of sayings. For this reason, Q is sometimes called the Synoptic Sayings Source or the Sayings Gospel. Some scholars have observed that the Gospel of Thomas and the Q material, as contrasted with the four canonical gospels, are similar in their emphasis on the sayings of Jesus instead of the passion of Jesus. The OLDEST Christian text is the the Didache or Teaching of the Twelve Apostles has continued to be one of the most disputed of early Christian texts. It has been depicted by scholars as anything between the original of the Apostolic Decree (c. 50 AD). STRANGELY this text is not found in any bible of both Catholic and Protestant editions . It deserves a second look , particularly odd of non canonical acceptance .

Did Ancient Egypt influence Christianity ?
The First Pagan converts to Pauline Christianity did not have a problem accepting Jesus Scholars have debated a number of broad issues related to the parallels drawn between Jesus and other myths, e.g. the very existence of the category dying-and-rising god was debated throughout the 20th century, most modern scholars questioning the soundness of the category.  Gerald Massey argued that there are similarities between the  (3)> Egyptian god Horus and Jesus.[25] Following those ideas, in the 1940s Alvin Boyd Kuhn suggested that not only Christianity, but Judaism was based on Egyptian concepts,I searched only for Horus I found plenty of sites on genuine Egyptology that do not describe Horus in any way that could be confused with the Jesus story .What we do know is that religions evolve. Baptists from earlier Protestants and the first Protestants from Catholicism is one crude but we’ll understood example. Others are the very obvious re-treading of Christianity by Joseph Smith, and the recycling of Judaism by Mohammad.My personal favourite used to be Dionysius and Jesus, but I’m afraid that is probably just as distant a relationship as Horus. Mithraism and Christianity have long been known to have parallels that are fascinating and may point to a nonJewish root for some small parts of Christian mythology and culture.
The Birth of Jesus.
While many people celebrate the birth of Jesus on December 25th every year . By now most of us would have guessed that the holiday was hardly celebrated by early Christians . It's a pagan festival that had gone through several incarnations over the thousand year period . So when was Jesus really born ? The Gospel story gives us some insight .In Christian tradition, the Star of Bethlehem, also called the Christmas Star,[1] revealed the birth of Jesus to the Biblical Magi, and later led them to Bethlehem. The star appears only in the nativity story of the Gospel of Matthew, where magi "from the east" are inspired by the star to travel to Jerusalem.[2] We are so familiar with the story.Many Christians see the star as a miraculous sign to mark the birth of the Christ (or messiah). Some theologians claimed that the star fulfilled a prophecy, known as the Star Prophecy.[4] Astronomers have made several attempts to link the star to unusual astronomical events, such as a conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, a comet or a supernova.  The Comet theory best describes the "star" of Bethlehem . Its appearance was as a star that "pointed" and "stood over" the city of Bethlehem. Josephus, the famed Jewish historian, described Halley’s Comet of 12 BC as heralding the death of Marcus Agrippa and stated in similar language as the New Testament account of the Bethlehem Star, "the star called comet stood for several days over the city [Rome]"  12 B.C. was the year the Jesus was born in November about the same time Marcus Agrippa died.

How old was Jesus , his "death".
 This is a hard one . Most God fearing Christians have a whitewashed image of Jesus , and the movies always show him as a young man in his 30's .  Truth is far from fiction , and the New Testament mingles legends  with facts that can be matched with the accounts given by Josephus .Then they count the number of once a year feast the Gospels say Jesus attended. There are three mentioned, primarily in the Gospel of John. From this they gather his ministry lasted for three years. Thirty years of age at Baptism, three years of ministry = Thirty three years. However that belief is not shared by everyone. The  (6)> second century Church Father Irenaeus wrote that Jesus Christ was around 50 years old during His earthly ministry. (Irenaeus was the disciple of Polycarp, who was a diciple of the Apostle John.) This adds more to the idea that Jesus was not  a single man , and was married , perhaps fathered children . Jesus himself gave clues to his real age as told in the Gospel of John( John 2: 18-21) he said in making an illustration about the Jewish Temple and his body :

18 Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?21 But he spake of the temple of his body.
(7)>  Remember this Novel.
It could be closer to fact
than fiction .
Concerning the death of Jesus . I don't believe that he was crucified , if he was he must of committed an act of political treason . It's hard for me to swallow the story that "healing the sick , and raising the dead" as Jesus own miracles would attest to as he would have been a wonder worker to the ancient people . He would have been worshiped as a "god" . This made this man so hated by the Roman anchorites ? The Crucifixion story , his trial was set in a political context has to be fiction or otherwise the followers of  Jesus may have brought their own ambitions for him as the 'Messiah' , it could have contributed to his arrest . In The BOOK of ACTS there is another clue that Israel was full of would be 'messiah's' claimants running around   . Acts 21:38 gives us a story that around the last few month's prior to the Jesus's death a riot took place in Jerusalem an  Egyptian, etc. He whom Josephus calls (' Bell. Jud.,' it. 13:5) "the Egyptian false prophet," and relates that, having collected above thirty thousand followers, he advanced from the desert to the Mount of Olives, intending to overpower the Roman garrison and make himself tyrant of Jerusalem, with the help of his δορυφόροι, or body-guard, who might very probably be composed of the Assassins or Sicarii, mentioned in the text. Many of Jesus's followers were caught up with this man who's own 'miracles' were mixed up with Jesus's . Obviously the sermon on the Mount of Olives may have come from this ' Egyptian' whom the Gospel writer's later  mistook it coming from Jesus .  Either case The Egyptian had premised his deluded followers that the walls of Jerusalem would fall down like those of Jericho. It is not known exactly in what year the insurrection took place, but it happen the year that Jesus was arrested . This is why Jesus in the Gospel story was hiding in the Garden of  Gethsemane, he was praying that the insurrection would be over . This was during the Passover , which was less peaceful at this time . The City of Jerusalem was filled rebellion . The Gospel ( Matthew 26:36-46)relates this passage in the purported words of Jesus : " Sit here while I go over there and pray.” 37And He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be grieved and distressed. 38Then He said to them, “My soul is deeply grieved, to the point of death; remain here and keep watch with Me.”  39And He went a little beyond them, and fell on His face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; yet not as I will, but as You will.” 40And He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, “So, you men could not keep watch with Me for one hour? 41“Keep watching and praying that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Now the last days of Jesus gets even  more bizarre . Remember the gospels were written some 30 years after Jesus death . The Gospel records two trials that are interwoven in each text.  Jesus has one trial before the Sanhedrin (a Jewish judicial body) with  Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were gathered together. Matthew 27:1 adds that, the next morning, the priests held another meeting. If we are really to  believe the story up to this point that a man could be tried twice ( If the name O.J Simpson for example ) The trial of Jesus ended here with his stoning for apostasy , but here the Gospel says that Jesus was sent to Pilate tried again and was sent to the cross . Remember in  the gospels they found Jesus with out fault. We are led to believe that , I suspect that the man who went to the Cross may have been the Egyptian who led a rebellion at the Mount of Olives . So there were two men who were caught up , one the Egyptian and Jesus . Obviously contrary to what my bible says , I don't  believe that Jesus died on the Cross , there are a number of  clues The first is in the crucifixion itself. When a person was crucified they did not die quickly, but rather a slow painful, morbid death which would have taken two to three days, possibly even a week. Jesus supposedly died within two to three hours.Joseph of Arimethea went to Pilot and asked to have the body of Jesus, which was contrary to Roman law anyway, and when Pilot heard that Jesus was already dead, he was so surprised to hear that Jesus had died so quickly that he sent a centurion to check. The second oddity is that the crucifixion took place in what seemed to be a private garden and tomb owned by Joseph of Arimethea. The importance of this observation is that if there was any fraudulence associated with the crucifixion, then the public could be kept away in a private garden and Jesus could be privately taken away, revived, tendered and ministered to.No Jew would handle a dead body after the beginning of Passover. It be unsettling for many in our modern age as to accept this Lost Gospel . If true it will change nothing what was said over 2000 years . Organized religion has pretty muched bottled necked the scriptures . So from Iving Wallace's book The Word comes a bit fact to fiction as that novel says. Perhaps Jesus did not die on the Cross  , he married fathered children and died a old age while the religon he started somehow got changed . this no need for the agurment, being married or not does not discredit Jesus or the christains. Jesus did not instruct us not to marry,God actually made woman for man to marry, thank God they said "marry" and not that He was funnicting.more than 50% of they life of Jesus christ was not recorded.the bible,it only recorded from His birth to 12th year when he was found with his father in the shop, and from 30 years when he was baptised to 33rd year yes he was not crucified as we are taught . let us not say what we don't know just because we want to discredit one religion. God created us all. 

*** is an ancient apocryphal expansion of the Book of Genesis's account of the patriarch Joseph's marriage to Aseneth.According to Genesis 41:45, Pharaoh gives Aseneth, the daughter of Potipherah (Pentephres in the Septuagint) priest of On to Joseph as a wife. Genesis 41:50-52 narrates that Aseneth bore Joseph two sons Manasseh and Ephraim. No more is said of her. Like many narratives in Genesis, the biblical story is tantalizingly brief, and raises questions that were to fascinate later interpreters. Why would an upstanding descendant of Jacob (Israel) marry the daughter of a pagan priest, and how could it be justifiable? How could two of the eponymous tribes be descended from union with an outsider, otherwise prohibited by the Mosaic Law? The story of Joseph and Aseneth sets out to answer some of those questions.The twenty-nine chapters of Joseph and Aseneth narrate the conversion of Aseneth, from idolatry to monotheism and the worship of Adonai. Aseneth, a virgin who has rejected numerous worthy suitors, falls in love with Joseph when he, as vizier of

This Jesus married with children has been around for a thousand years plus. Several Gnostic sects within Christianity during it's infancy believed in the texts that he was married with children. It's really isn't a new idea. If we think their is a plethora of Christian denominations, sects, and creeds now, there evidently was three times more widely varying groups during the infancy. The Catholic Church, prior to the schism, codified and did rhetorically kill off many competing groups to unify Christian belief under Pauline doctrine. .Old news, literally. (1)> Curiously early LDS ( MORMONS) leaders believed and taught that Jesus was married . It's not just among new ages groups that taught this in occult and spiritual movements   Several early LDS leaders believed Jesus was married, and said so from the pulpit on occasion. Here is one example from Apostle Orson Hyde:

Now there was actually a marriage [at Cana (John 2:1–11)]; and if Jesus was not the bridegroom on that occasion, please tell who was. If any man can show this, and prove that it was not the Savior of the world, then I will acknowledge I am in error. We say it was Jesus Christ who was married, to be brought into the relation whereby he could see his seed (Isaiah 53:10), before he was crucified. "Has he indeed passed by the nature of angels, and taken upon himself the seed of Abraham, to die without leaving a seed to bear his name on the earth?" No. But when the secret is fully out, the seed of the blessed shall be gathered in, in the last days; and he who has not the blood of Abraham flowing in his veins, who has not one particle of the Savior's in him, I am afraid is a stereotyped Gentile, who will be left out and not be gathered in the last days; for I tell you it is the chosen of God, the seed of the blessed, that shall be gathered. I do not despise to be called a son of Abraham, if he had a dozen wives; or to be called a brother, a son, a child of the Savior, if he had Mary, and Martha, and several others, as wives; and though he did cast seven devils out of one of them, it is all the same to me. [3]

# Here is one bible passage that has confused theologians for centuries about Jesus and his relation with women . First of all most of the gospel accounts show Jesus associating himself with fallen women ( Prostitutes) which made him an enemies  of the Jewish Sadducees and Pharisees comprised the ruling class of Israel. 37 And behold, a woman who was in the city, a sinner; and when she knew that he was sitting at meat in the Pharisee's house, she brought an alabaster cruse of ointment. (2)>  Original name for Jesus - The name corresponds to the Greek spelling Iesous, from which, through the Latin Iesus, comes the English spelling Jesus. The Hebrew spelling Yeshua (ישוע) appears in some later books of the Hebrew Bible. (3)> If you would look up gthe book entitled “The Christ Conspiracy,The Greatest Story Ever Sold” by Acharya S published by Adventures Unlimited Press, you will find evidence for simila points not only Horus but a dozen other “Gods”.(4)> There are 18 unknown years of Jesus' life missing in the Bible (ages 12–30). The Aquarian Gospel documents these 18 years as a time when Jesus travels to the centers of wisdom in India, Tibet & Western India, Persia, Assyria, Greece, and Egypt. In each of these capital cities, he is educated, tested, and teaches the religious leaders. Jesus inevitably proves that he is 'God's chosen one' (the Christ) in these locales and brings back this multi-cultural wisdom and confidence to Galilee & Judea. The Urantia  Book records lost details by an 'Apostle named Andrew' which like the Aquarian Gospel says Jesus had a girlfriend .(5)> If you have not read The Da Vinci Code is a 2003 mystery-detective novel written by Dan Brown. It follows symbologist Robert Langdon and cryptologist Sophie Neveu after a murder in the Louvre Museum in Paris, when they become involved in a battle between the Priory of Sion and Opus Dei over the possibility of Jesus having been married to Mary Magdalene. The book is pure fantasy , and it's filled with new age Masonic lore, The novel explores an alternative religious history, whose central plot point is that the Merovingian kings of France were descended from the bloodline of Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene, ideas derived from Clive Prince's The Templar Revelation (1997) and books by Margaret Starbird. The book also refers to The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail (1982) though Dan Brown has stated that it was not used as research material.The Da Vinci Code provoked a popular interest in speculation concerning the Holy Grail legend and Mary Magdalene's role in the history of Christianity. The book has, however, been extensively denounced by many Christian denominations as an attack on the Roman Catholic Church. (6)> The Church Father Irenaeus claimed that Christ was about fifty when he died (Against Heresies II 22:5). His primary argument was that this information has been passed down to him by way of John and the other apostles. We should point out that Irenaeus is a very credible source, a disciple of Polycarp, who in turn was a disciple of the |Apostle John. As such, he is only one generation removed from direct contact with the apostles. Irenaeus was a church bishop who penned this information in his books “Against Heresies” sometime between the years 182 A.D. and 188 A.D. At the time he would have been in his sixties. (7)> The Word is a 1972 mystery thriller novel by Irving Wallace, which explores the origin of the Bible.The plot of the novel is based around the discovery within Roman ruins of a newgospel written by Jesus' younger brother, James in the first century. In the gospel, many facts of Jesus' life, including the years not mentioned in the Bible, are revealed not to be as factual as they were once thought to be.

Madam President I presume ..................

In 1995 I used to watch a science fiction show called *** SLIDERS about a genius who discovers a wormhole and finds that he and his friends can slide to different alternative 'Earths' in different universes/ dimensions,that exist parallel to our own . ONE episode that caught my attention this week named " The Weaker Sex". In this world (1)> WOMEN rule the world , and the Silders soon watch on TV a Mrs. Hillary Clinton give a press conference . The Sliders are all stunned with disbelief as we shall soon see in our real world. it's important to remember that this episode showed a world where Hillary Clinton became president, and bill Clinton did not become president. thus it had nothing to do with any prediction about the future.

 Funny the Slider's script had this remark about Mrs. Clinton  " ARTURO Unfathomable. Hillary Clinton, President of the United States? What's next - Marla Maple, Secretary of State?WADE What's so wrong with Hillary?Who's to say we didn't choose the wrong Clinton on our world? REMBRANDT She may have a point. ARTURO Utter nonsense.WAD E It's not nonsense! Women can run things just fine - remember Margaret Thatcher? Indira Ghandi?

Bella Abzug?"

It's January 2017 A.D. You turn on TV and see the "Inauguration" of Hillary R Clinton , beside her stands an already beleaguered looking former President Barrack Obama , and a vary sickly looking William Jefferson Clinton . The Election was so close that Mrs. Clinton's opponent Jeb Bush cried afoul , like Al Gore years before a "recount" of the nation election had accord . This was no easy day for America with rioting across the nation , more news overseas of terrorism ,war .  The national debt hit 20 trillion dollars . It was snowing in Washington D.C. after a cold arctic blast swept half the nation . It look's bleak and depressing . Yes, I know what I am saying . Pardon me for such a "fictional" introduction . Is America ready for this kind of woman President? Hillary Clinton has so far artfully dodged questions about her 2016 presidential ambitions from the press, her supporters and potential Democrat rivals. Yet she is a vary sneaky woman , her ambitions are almost as high as her husband's Mr. Clinton at her side . The truth could be laid bare that there is a Clinton conspiracy in the works.  While the last few years of Obama as President were nothing but a shambles , the Clinton network was slow destroying Obama as "they" distanced themselves from him . Mrs Clinton grinned sheepishly as the audience in liberal Oregon leapt to their feet in a full minute of sustained cheering and applause. The former secretary of state looked genuinely embarrassed as she walked offstage without answering, pausing to offer a comic shrug before disappearing into the wings.America still burns with questions over Mrs Clinton's future and the prospect of a second bid to become the country's first female commander-in-chief. Here I am telling you to beware .... Republicans in 2017 have both control of the Senate and control of the House of Representatives, but that isn’t “necessarily a good thing for the republic” and may be exactly what former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wanted it to be in the long ride to the Oval Office . For her she will have  walked into a "gridlock" Congress  situation as never before seen in American History. In the past month alone, a "grassroots" movement has started a natianal finance council and selling T-shirts and other campaign basics. Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri has formally endorsed Clinton, calling her the "best to lead this country forward". And House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California all but endorsed Clinton for president in an interview with USA Today last week, saying she would definitely win if she ran. Never mind that the election is over three years away. There could be a change for the democrats if (2)>  Joe Biden decides to run Then again, she still has a 47-point lead over her nearest competitor, Vice President Joe Biden, who clocks in at 14 percent in a new poll. Liberal-wing darling Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D) of Massachusetts comes in third at 13 percent, up 6 percentage points since June. The years 2012-2014 have not been good for Mrs. Clinton Her record as secretary of state was undercut by the rise of the Islamic State and a breakdown in relations with Russia. Her much-awaited book didn’t sell many copies. Her face graced the cover of this year’s worst-selling issue of People magazine. The Benghazi ghost came up right up to her election in 2016 , not as much as the "ghost of Christmas past , but as the ghost of Christmas future." Any way The problem is the reality check will inevitably come. Just ask Obama. A decade worth of Obama has hurt the democrats the recent "high-risk immigration gamble"  halting the deportations of 5 million illegal immigrants is just the latest thorn in the side of his former secretary of State,Hillary Clinton already was seeing her support faltering, the men write. Only 43 percent polled during the midterm elections said they think she would make a good president. Against an unnamed Republican candidate, Clinton lost 40 percent to 34 percent.Clinton's favor ability already had slipped from 59 percent in 2009 to 43 percent in September in a Wall Street Journal/NBC poll. Obama's unilateral doubling-down on his unpopular policies after the election will only hurt her further. There is however a "chance" that we all will be saying Madam President I Presume....The worst possible first black and the worst possible first woman.Clinton will be another Obama, except maybe without as many preemptive concessions on the things that she doesn't WANT to concede on.

 I was brewing on this before I typed this article how much the American Presidency has changed over the last two decades . I am getting a gut feeling that it is in "decline" . The highest office in the nation has been dragged to the level of a Company CEO. We aren’t electing a C.E.O. to occupy the White House.the president did not do all this "declining" in America by himself. Mr. Obama also put the presidency at a celebrity level over the years . So my question is how would a woman like Hillary do ? I assuming that her Husband Bill Clinton will be by her side probably dictating policy from behind her desk at the Oval Office .Allegations that she was drawing heavily on her husband’s legacy for her political capital. It's a sure sign for  political cartoonists to mock . (4)> America's first woman president might just be our last.

*** The group arrives on a world where women hold public office, play professional sports, fly planes, and are captains of industry while men cook, clean, and stay home to take care of the kids. Over the centuries, men had gradually come to believe there is a benefit to female leadership. There is no war, social issues are handled quickly and crime is almost non-existent. However, it is definitely a caste system; men have little avenues of employment aside from modeling, secretarial work and nannying. Hillary Clinton is the president of the United States of America, and Jane Pauley is the Pope. Maximillian Arturo runs against San Francisco mayor Anita Ross. Remember this show was on TV in 1995 , the Slider's own astonishment may not have been a reaction that a woman can be a an American President , but  the problem is that it is Mrs. Clinton who in 1995 was rocked in a political scandal involving Health Care reform .The Clinton health care plan, known officially as the Health Security Act, was a 1993 healthcare reform package proposed by the administration of President Bill Clinton and closely associated with the chair of the task force devising the plan, First Lady Hillary Clinton. The plan, which became known as "Hillarycare" was so wildly unpopular on all levels, it led to the Republicans simultaneously winning both the House and Senate in 1994 for the first time since 1953. (1)> Women frankly rule western world politics already , sadly many of the modern female rulers not as much as their ancient counter parts have ended up in a scandal , or worst killed . IN America ,  More women than men are enrolled at universities, where they typically earn higher grades; once they graduate, those who live in big cities might even receive higher salaries—at least in the early years of employment. The Speaker of the House is female, as are eight governors and 16 percent of Congress (never mind that this is 11 percent fewer than Afghanistan’s parliament). Many women believed we had access to the same opportunities and experiences as men—that was the goal of the feminist movement, wasn’t it?(2) >People who’ve been talking to Biden say the factor
The Democratic Party has
a better choice with
Joe Biden in
2016 over
Hillary Clinton .
weighing on his mind may be less Clinton than Obama. Even as a sitting vice president, Biden might not be too proud to run a long-shot campaign, they insist. He was living it up during those months in 2007 when he was lucky to get a dozen people in a room and finished with a grand total of 1 percent in the Iowa caucuses.
But he might not be willing to risk losing the integral role he revels in at the White House. A presidential run would mean missing meetings because he’s out in Iowa or New Hampshire. He’d be asked to draw distinctions between himself and Obama, and the Biden orbit worries about the inevitable loyalty questions that would raise, the West Wing discussions he might start getting excluded from.Nobody who’s run for president twice stops wanting the job. But Biden’s been in politics more than long enough to see what’s happening around Clinton and what a Joe Quixote run would mean. Does he essentially give up the best job he’ll likely ever have two years early for a run at one he probably won’t get?Anyway, some around Biden say, maybe he’d be a better fit to be Clinton’s secretary of state. (4)> I tackled this question before " Is America ready for a Woman President ?" . I don't want to be accused of gender sexism , but it's not that any women are good for the job . We have seen that  women run organizations in the United States . The IRONY is that America and it's Constitution were drawn up by men who marginally were no perfect . We had slavery , women did not get to vote not until the 1920's . The language in the constitution is basically not gender natural in all places it refers to men as the power holders . Most of all the United States has never had the experience of a woman as president like in other nations . Most of all women who had become leaders of other  nations like Argentina for example had ended  up getting torn apart in scandal and in Media.
