CHRISTIANITY, IDOLATRY & NEW AGE MARKETING
Oils in and of themselves are fine. There are oils in the Bible, after all. It’s the idolatry and new age marketing that are the problem.
Former essential oil distributor, Liberty Rose Brewster explains how essential oil blends are marketed as magical formula blends such as “abundance,” “trauma recovery,” and “forgiveness,” with new age teachings blended in.
As a Christian, Liberty could no longer support this idolatrous marketing.

INTERVIEW WITH DOREEN VIRTUE, EX-NEW AGER: “DIVINATION, OIL COMBOS WILL BRING MONEY”; MEDICAL CLAIMS EXPOSED; FTC STOPS THEM
THE CULT I ALMOST JOINED Young Living Essential Oils is a cult, and an MLM. I almost joined the cult in college, but I got informed and avoided it. I used to thing Young Living was a scam and nothing more, but after having studied the work of cult expert and psychologist, Steven Hassan, I now know otherwise. D. Gary Young is a scam artist, criminal, and conman of the highest order. Contrary to what he taught, essential oils don’t work as medicine, and they certainly don’t cure cancer. Whether it’s Young Living, Doterra, or any other multilevel marketing company selling oils, keep in mind that oils have minimal use outside of aromatherapy for comfort/relaxation.

WASHINGTON — The National Institutes of Health (NIH) paid at least $18,000 from December 2016 to August 2018 to Planned Parenthood partner Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR) for livers and thymuses extracted from second trimester aborted babies, according to over 600 pages of documents obtained by the group Judicial Watch.
The documents show that the NIH purchased the organs to create “humanized mice” used in finding cures for HIV.
“Beginning with a December 21, 2016 payment to ABR and running through April 2018, the records show that a fetal liver and thymus set costs $680, and payment was due upon receipt. On May 23, 2018, the cost increased to $750,” Judicial Watch outlined in a press release on Feb. 13.
At least 26 purchases were made by Dr. Kim Hasenkrug, senior investigator at the NIH Rocky Mountain Laboratories in Hamilton, Montana, and purchase orders state, “These tissues, liver and thymus, are required [by] Ron Messer for ongoing studies of HIV in the Hasenkrug Lab. Our mice will be ready for reconstitution soon.”
“These records detailing the federal government’s purchases of organs of aborted fetuses are the most disturbing I’ve ever seen in all my time at Judicial Watch,” President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “Every responsible official in government — from President Trump to HHS Secretary Azar — should investigate and stop the trafficking of organs of aborted unborn human beings for taxpayer-funded Frankenstein-type experimentation.”
As previously reported, in September 2018, 85 members of Congress urged the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to discontinue its contract to obtain fetal remains from ABR.
The sale of fetal remains for profit is illegal under federal law.
“[I]n June of 2014, an ABR technician obtained a 20-week-old fetus at a Planned Parenthood clinic, for which it paid $60,” the Committee outlined in a report. “From that one fetus, ABR sold its brain to one customer for $325, both of its eyes for $325 each ($650 total) to a second customer, a portion of its liver for $325 to a third customer, its thymus for $325 and another portion of its liver for $325 to a fourth customer, and its lung for $325 to a fifth customer.”
In addition to making over $2,200 from just one baby, ABR also allegedly charged shipping and disease screening fees, making over $6,000 from a single child. A technician from ABR would go to Planned Parenthood and personally collect the aborted baby body parts on site the day of the procedures.
As a result of the congressional outcry, HHS soon announced that it had ended a contract between ABR and the FDA and decided to review all HHS-related research involving the use of aborted babies “in light of the serious regulatory, moral, and ethical considerations involved.”
“So long as HHS trades taxpayer dollars for freshly-aborted baby body parts, the U.S. government is setting its own abortion quotas and sending the message that these children are worth more dead than alive,” remarked the Center for Medical Progress, which had first exposed Planned Parenthood’s partnership with such biomedical companies in undercover videos.
“By terminating a grotesque contract for ‘fresh’ aborted baby parts from Planned Parenthood’s business partners ABR that never should have been signed in the first place, HHS has taken a small first step to stop the epidemic of trafficking tiny baby hearts, lungs, livers, and brains from late-term abortion clinics into government-sponsored laboratories for taxpayer-funded experimentation,” said founder David Daleiden, who is currently facing criminal charges in California for his work to uncover Planned Parenthood’s activities.
“HHS’s mission to ‘serve all Americans from conception to natural death’ cannot permit trafficking unborn children to stitch their body parts into lab rats,” he stated.
The Center for Medical Progress characterizes the government’s hand in the matter as being much more expansive, calculating NIH expenses for aborted babies — both intramural and extramural (intramural meaning research conducted in a government laboratory and extramural referring to monetary grants to other research entities) — as being over $200 million in 2017-2018.
“The taxpayer-funded experimentation on aborted fetal body parts is shocking,” it writes. “In a recent study funded by multiple NIH grants, published June 2018 in the Journal of Neuroscience, scientists transplanted human brain cells from aborted fetuses into baby lab mice. For the experiment, ‘Fetal brain tissue samples, between 17 and 22 weeks of gestational age, were obtained from Advanced Bioscience Resources.'”
“In another study funded by multiple NIH grants, published October 2013 in PLoS ONE, UC Berkeley scientists obtained ‘normal fetal eyes’ at ’24 week gestation’ from ABR,” it outlines. “The study notes the eyeballs ‘were collected from elective abortions,’ and, ‘All fetal eyes were harvested within minutes of death.'”
“When the audit and review began, HHS had an existing contract with the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) regarding research involving human fetal tissue from elective abortions,” it outlined. “HHS has been extending the UCSF contract by means of 90-day extensions while conducting its audit and review. The current extension expires on June 5, 2019, and there will be no further extensions.”
HHS further explained that current extramural projects at other universities would not be affected by the decision, but should a university seek a renewal once its contract nears expiration, “an ethics advisory board will be convened to review the research proposal and recommend whether, in light of the ethical considerations, NIH should fund the research project — pursuant to a law passed by Congress.”
Now, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has announced that it is seeking nominations for the creation of an National Institutes of Health (NIH) advisory board that will discuss the ethical concerns of using the remains of aborted babies to find cures for diseases.
“The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announces the establishment of, and intent to convene, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Human Fetal Tissue Research Ethics Advisory Board,” a notice published earlier this month states.
The board will meet with and advise Secretary Alex Azar on “the ethics of research involving human fetal tissue (HFT) proposed in NIH grant and cooperative agreement applications and R&D contract proposals.”
“Recommendations will address whether the secretary should withhold funds or not withhold funds from a proposed project because of ethical considerations,” the document explains. “[T]he Ethics Board will consider, among other things, the use of alternative models, and review and verify the core ethical principles and procedures used in the process to obtain written voluntary informed consent for the donation of the tissue.”
Ultimately, the board will advise the government as to whether or not it is unethical to conduct or otherwise support research utilizing organs, tissues and cells extracted from aborted babies.
The board will be comprised of 15 non-government employees and will include an attorney, an ethicist, a physician and a theologian. At least one-third of the group will be scientists with significant accomplishments in biomedical or behavioral research.
ATF Proposes Step to Make a National Gun Registry Easier
The ATF has issued new rules that will alter the format for Form 4473’s and make it easier to create a national gun registry.
The movie, Red Dawn, shows how the 4473 form can be used as a backdoor gun registry. In the movie, a Cuban commander orders an officer to obtain the 4473s from the sporting goods store, so the invading forces know who owns firearms.
Here’s what we know. ATF agents have used annual inspections to electronically record the contents of Form 4473’s being kept by federal gun dealers. See here and here.
We also know that a software company exhibiting its wares at the Shot Show in Las Vegas has crafted a system where ATF can take the contents of all the dealer’s Bound Book entries (which contain all of the buyer’s personal information and gun information which is on a Form 4473) by simply capturing them on a thumb drive.
We know that billionaire “Midget Mike” Bloomberg has made Universal Background Checks/National Gun Registries the centerpiece of his $2 BILLION campaign for the presidency — presumably because, if everyone with a gun has a 4473, then everyone with a gun will be in the national gun registry being compiled by ATF, using its copies of 4473’s.
And we know that the ATF is now trying to put the names of gun owners on the same page of the 4473 as the identifying information of the gun. See here.
But if they’re successful with changing the 4473 in this way, it will be much easier for ATF to create a national gun registry by photographing paper documents.
So it appears that we have an answer to the almost inexplicable question of why ATF is crawling over glass now to reincarnate the format for the 4473 which was junked decades ago.
This is, of course, one piece of the National Gun Registry strategy.
But, given that ATF is required by law to receive comments between now and February 24, it is worth our time to let them know that we know what they’re up to.
So please, go above to urge our federal government to REJECT the proposed changes to the 4473 form.
Again, let them know that bureaucrats shouldn’t be making it easier to register the firearms of law-abiding gun owners! ____________________________________________________ UPDATE: FEBRUARY 25, 2020:

PATERSON, NEW JERSEY CITY COUNCIL ORDINANCE WILL ALLOW ISLAMIC CALL TO PRAYER OVER LOUDSPEAKERS
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research
“A proposed ordinance before the City Council will allow mosques in Paterson to broadcast the Adhan or the Muslim call to prayer. Under the ordinance, mosques will be allowed to use loudspeakers to announce the call to prayer during a 16-hour span. The ordinance states: ‘The city shall permit ‘Adhan’, call to prayer’, ‘church bells’ and other reasonable means of announcing religious meetings to be amplified between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. for duration not to exceed five minutes.’”
Notice the ridiculous comparison to church bells. The Adhan is not merely the sound of a bell. It is the loud shouting and declaration of Islamic supremacism over infidels. Paterson residents now have to be subject to this:
Allah is greater (Allahu akbar); intoned four times.I testify that there is no God but Allah (Ashhadu anna la ila ill Allah); intoned twice.I testify that Mohammed is Allah’s Prophet (Ashhadu anna Muhammadan rasul Allah); intoned twice.Come to prayer (Hayya alas salah); intoned twice.Come to security/salvation (Hayya alal falah); intoned twice.Allah is greater (Allahu akbar); intoned twice.There is no God but Allah (La ilah ill Allah); intoned once.
“Councilman Shahin Khalique proposed the ordinance on Tuesday night as an amendment to the existing noise control ordinance.”
“Paterson ordinance will let mosques broadcast Muslim call to prayer,” by Jayed Rahman, Paterson Times, February 19, 2020:
A proposed ordinance before the City Council will allow mosques in Paterson to broadcast the Adhan or the Muslim call to prayer.
Under the ordinance, mosques will be allowed to use loudspeakers to announce the call to prayer during a 16-hour span. The ordinance states: “The city shall permit ‘Adhan’, call to prayer’, ‘church bells’ and other reasonable means of announcing religious meetings to be amplified between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. for duration not to exceed five minutes.”
Councilman Shahin Khalique proposed the ordinance on Tuesday night as an amendment to the existing noise control ordinance.
Council members spent three minutes discussing the measure.
Paterson has approximately 30,000 Muslims. It has a dozen mosques scattered throughout the city. Presently, mosques make the call to prayer five times a day; however, the sound is not amplified outside the buildings.
Late last year, Khalique, who is up for reelection in May, promised local leaders he planned to introduce the measure modeled on an ordinance in effect in Hamtramck, Mich. At the time, Khalique said he had been in discussions with other members of the City Council to get the measure passed….

Social Justice mania continues to infringe on First Amendment rights as an Ohio Court has told a Christian professor he could be fired for refusing to use trans pronouns, upholding the school’s nondiscrimination policy.
Shawnee State University (SSU) professor Nicholas Meriwether filed suit against SSU after the university sided with a student who became hostile when Professor Meriwether said he would not refer to the student by his preferred pronouns.
According to Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), who filed the lawsuit on Meriwether’s behalf, the student — Alena Bruening — to whom the ruling refers only as “Doe,” “became belligerent, circling around him, getting in his face in a threatening fashion, while telling him, ‘Then I guess this means I can call you a c**t.’”
SSU later sided with the student after he filed a formal complaint, and claimed Professor Meriwether created a “hostile” environment in violation of the school’s non-discrimination policy. SSU issued an official warning in June 2018.
ADF noted in its suit that the school violated Meriwether’s First Amendment-protected rights, a charge that was dismissed by the U.S. District Court of Southern District of Ohio.
Meriwether’s chief complaint is that forcing him to refer to each student’s self-identified gender “would require him to violate his conscience and sincerely held religious beliefs,” the suit reads.
He charged that his rights were violated because he was threatened and punished “for refusing to communicate a University-mandated ideological message regarding gender identity both in and out of the classroom” and that he was compelled to communicate in regard to gender identity in a way that conflicts with his religious beliefs.
Judge Susan Dlott dismissed these charges.
“Plaintiff’s refusal to address a student in class in accordance with the student’s gender identity does not implicate broader societal concerns and the free speech clause of the First Amendment under the circumstances of this case,” the court ruled.
The court claims that because Meriwether could have simply opted to remove all gendered language from the classroom, his free-speech rights were not infringed upon. Meriwether rebuts this assertion, however. He explained that he typically refers to his students as Mr. or Ms. followed by their last name, and that to assuage the transgender student’s concerns, he opted to refer to him by just his last name. The court contends this still amounted to discrimination because Meriwether didn’t call all the students by just their last name.
Meriwether argues the university’s nondiscrimination policy is “overbroad” and even dictates speech outside of the classroom, a point the university does not dispute. But the court ruled it is in the University’s best interest to create and promote “an educational and working environment for students and employees that is without unlawful or prohibited discrimination and harassment,” and that interest is not limited to the classroom but extends to all employees’ “official duties outside of the classroom.”
And yet the court found that Meriwether did not face discrimination despite his superior laughing at and dismissing his concerns that his religious beliefs were being violated when he was asked to refer to the student by his preferred pronouns. The court side-stepped Meriwether’s allegations by claiming that any professor would have been disciplined for refusing to use the preferred pronouns, and therefore, no discrimination was present. Of course, the counter-argument is simply that all those professors would have faced discrimination as a result of their religious and/or personal beliefs.
It’s also worth noting that Judge Dlott did refer to the transgender student by his preferred pronouns in her ruling.
The ADF states they are considering their next course of action.
“This is wrong,” ADF’s Travis Barham, Meriwether’s attorney, said in a statement following the court’s ruling. “Public universities have no business compelling people to express ideological beliefs that they don’t hold. And we are currently evaluating our next steps with our client in ensuring that these basic principles are respected,” Barham continued.
The Hill reports Meriwether has stated that he intends to continue the case.
“Philosophy especially — but certainly higher education in general — is all about the free exchange of ideas, but this exchange cannot happen unless faculty and students are in fact free to share their views,” he said.
“But the University insisted that I endorse an ideology I do not believe is true. This is simply wrong. True tolerance must be a two-way street. Now the district court suggests that professors have no free speech rights, which should trouble us all," Meriweather said.
Meanwhile, SSU spokeswoman Elizabeth Blevins praised the ruling in a statement to Campus Reform.
“We are pleased with the District Court’s ruling to dismiss the case. We remain committed to providing a work and educational environment that is respectful of individual beliefs and free from discrimination," Blevins said.
