Example To Follow? Now we know why Bullying is an epidemic

14-Year-Old Special Needs Student Speaks Out On TODAY About Being Bullied By Teachers

Laura Hibbard


“We were shocked … we didn’t know,”
14-year-old Cheyenne’s father tearfully said in an interview on the TODAY show Tuesday.

After their complaints to the school board reportedly went uninvestigated, the parents of the special needs student decided to hide a tape recorder in their daughter’s clothes. What they captured left them upset — and angry.

“Don’t you want to do something about that belly?
” teaching aide Kelly Chaffins said to Cheyenne, according to the recording.

“Yes,” the girl responded.

“Well, evidently you don’t because you don’t do anything at home,” Chaffins said. “You sit at home and watch TV.”

WATCH:

In his emotional interview, Cheyenne’s father told NBC’s Ann Curry that his daughter started to react to the stress.

“She got to where she didn’t want to go to school,” he said. “She was … starting to harm herself to keep from going to school and we knew we had to do something at that point.

After bringing the recordings to the school board, officials demanded that Chaffins resign. Chaffins subsequently announced her resignation while Christy Wilt, the classroom teacher, has been put on unpaid leave and ordered to undergo eight hours of training on how to stop child abuse. But these consequences aren’t enough for the family’s attorneys.

“There’s no good solution, but we don’t think that this teacher and this aide should be working with students, especially special needs students,”
one of the attorneys told Curry. “We would like her to be terminated.”

Cheyenne’s parents sued the school district and received $300,000 in damages.

Billionaires for Eugenics

Billionaires For Eugenics

The Intel Hub
By Servando Gonzalez
May 8, 2011

On May 5th, 2009, some of the most notorious members of the “billionaires club” — David Rockefeller, Bill Gates, Ted Turner, Oprah Winfrey, Warren Buffett, George Soros, Eli Broad, Peter G. Peterson, Patty Stonesifer, John Morgridge, Michael Bloomberg and a few other billionaires –, secretly met at the Manhattan residence of Sir Paul Nurse, president of Rockefeller University.

HISTORY OF EUGENICS

The meeting was eerily similar to another meeting that took place on January 20, 1942, in Wansee, a Berlin suburb.

In the Wansee Conference, some high ranking Nazi officials, led by SS-Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich, dispassionately discussed the more efficient methods to carry out the “Final solution to the Jewish question.”

Though European Jews were the main targets for elimination, other groups, especially Slavs, Romany and mentally and/or physically disabled Germans, were also persecuted and murdered. The total death toll is estimated at between 12 and 26 million.

As expected, the U.S. mainstream media was very careful not to inform the American people about the billionaires meeting in Manhattan, but some details eventually were known.

Quoting an anonymous person who attended the meeting, a major U.K. newspaper reported that “a consensus emerged that they would back a strategy in which population growth would be tackled as a potentially disastrous environmental, social and industrial threat.”

According to other sources, billionaires who attended the secret meeting convened on the initiative of Bill Gates. Giving credibility to this is the fact that Gates had made similar points at a conference he attended on February 18, 2010, in Long Beach, California.

“Official projections say the world’s population will peak at 9.3 billion [up from 6.6 billion today] but with charitable initiatives, such as better reproductive healthcare, we think we can cap that at 8.3 billion,
” Gates said. Translated into plain English, this means that Mr. gates is planning to participate in the killing of more than a billion human beings.

Also present at the meeting in Manhattan was media czar Ted Turner, billionaire founder of CNN who stated in a 1996 interview for the Audubon nature magazine, where he said that a 95% reduction of world population to between 225-300 million would be “ideal.” In a 2008 interview at Philadelphia’s Temple University, Turner fine-tuned the number to 2 billion, a cut of more than 70% from today’s population.

The Rockefeller family is known for their generosity in contributing, through their non-profit, “philanthropic” foundations, to all causes whose goal is population control. Actually they were instrumental in the creation of the eugenics movement in the U.S., which later was exported to Germany where the Nazis brought it to its highest development.

Since the early 1920’s the Rockefeller Foundation began funding the eugenics research in Germany through the Kaiser-Wilhelm Institutes in Berlin and Munich. Beginning in the 1950’s, John D. Rockefeller III, used his foundation money to create a population reduction neo-Malthusian program through his private Population Council in New York.

It is not a coincidence that all of the billionaires who attended the Manhattan meeting are strong supporters of the creation of a New World Order. The NWO they envision is the global, communo-fascist totalitarian regime that will be implemented after they have killed 70% of the current world’s population and reduced the survivors to pre-industrial level of consumption.

This will be a techno-fascist medieval society with no middle class, with only the dirty poor serfs confined to decaying cities and the billionaire masters living in fortified castles, enjoying the beauty of a depopulated Gaia.

Some naïve people see this as another unfounded conspiracy theory. Their rationale is based on the belief that they would not want to kill us, when they need us as consumers to further engross their fortunes. We must remember that, when news spread that the Nazis were killing the Jews, some people, including some Jews, didn’t believe it.

The Nazis, they reasoned, needed them to exploit as slave labor in the war factories. Unfortunately, the ones who thought that ended up in the extermination camps. Trying to find logic in the minds of mass murderers is a perilous exercise in frustration.

Early this year, enviro-journalist Bryan Nelson wrote a Mother Nature Network report entitled “Was Genghis Khan History’s Greenest Conqueror?” [1] In it, he claimed that Genghis Khan’s invasions of the 13th and 14th centuries were so sweeping, it “may have been the first instance in history of a single culture causing man-made climate change.” According to Nelson, Genghis Khan contributed to cool the environment by “effectively scrubbing around 700 million tons of carbon from the atmosphere.”

Obviouysly, if Nelson survives the planned mass killing, he would happily write an article claiming that the eugenicist billionaires have gained their rightful place in history as the greenest mass killers in human history. I would not be surprised if somebody suggests carving their smiling faces in Mount Rushmore honoring their success in saving Gaia from us useless eaters.

Had a group of people secretly met to plan the assassination of one single person, it would be a conspiracy to commit a murder, a crime penalized by the U.S. law. But, even though the Manhattan meeting eventually leaked to the press, none of the would-be mass murderers have been indicted. Obviously, these billionaires see themselves above the law because they are above the law.

The would-be mass murderers’ rationale for wanting to kill more than a billion of us is that the Earth resources are limited, and we consume and pollute too much. But just a perfunctory analysis of the problem evidences that any of the billionaires who attended the secret meeting consume and pollute more in a single day than the people of some small third-world countries do in a year. Therefore, I would have expected that, if they really wanted to solve the problem in order to save the planet, they have plans to commit suicide after having killed their whole families.

Actually, just from the point of view of efficiency, that solution may be much more practical. But no. The hyperpolluter billionaires want to do it the hard way, by killing you, me, and several billion more. I guess that currently Hitler, Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot are turning around in their graves, knowing that these billionaires are trying harder to beat their records as the greatest mass murderers in modern history.

“O” ….NO…!!!


O no! USA Today challenges Oprah on Jesus Christ
‘Absolutely contrary to the true teaching of Scripture and historic Christianity’

As Oprah Winfrey’s television show comes to a conclusion this week, USA Today is challenging the queen of daytime TV’s spirituality, quoting authors who say Oprah’s beliefs are “absolutely contrary to the true teaching of Scripture and historic Christianity.”

The report by Cathy Lynn Grossman opens by asking to whom will Oprah turn now that she’s leaving the TV talk circuit.

God?” the report asks. “Not likely. Many Americans no longer believe in a mighty judge who sets the rules for life now and forever. Instead, many of us sing Oprah’s song of self-redemption.”

Oprah told Piers Morgan on the CNN host’s opening show: “I am the messenger to deliver the message of hope and redemption.”

USA Today says to a vast extent, American culture has bought the message: We’re all good, we should not judge each other and morality is relative.

It quotes Rice University sociologist Michael Lindsay who said Oprah draws on multiple religious traditions to “create a hodgepodge personalized faith.”

USA Today explains: “This is, of course, a message that horrifies traditional believers who decry it, like Josh McDowell and Dave Sterrett in their book, “‘O’ God: A Dialogue on Truth and Oprah’s Spirituality.”

In the book, the authors state: “The danger is that while appearing to use Christian and inclusive language that at first seems similar to that of Christianity, Oprah teaches a message that is radically different and absolutely contrary to the true teaching of Scripture and historic Christianity.”

On “Good Morning America” on the day of her final show, Oprah noted, “I often say, ‘Nobody but Jesus could have made this happen for me. I had no stylist, I had no publicist, I [was not] marketing-savvy, I was the most naive in terms of how the business operated.

Though brought up as a Baptist, Oprah has since embraced and promoted a New Age-style philosophy promoted by Eckhart Tolle of “The Power of Now” and “A New Earth.”

She explained how she reconciled her Christian roots with Tolle’s let-go-and-breathe counseling on peace through silence and stillness: “What I believe is that Jesus came to show us Christ consciousness. That Jesus came to show us the way of the heart and that what Jesus was saying that to show us the higher consciousness that we’re all talking about here … .”

Winfrey’s television and print empire was stained in October 2009 by the tragic deaths of three people who were following the spiritual teaching of one of Winfrey’s celebrated and promoted self-help gurus, James Arthur Ray.

Winfrey’s philosophy of spirituality is embraced by many in her audience, especially those, like the TV host, who have grown disillusioned with organized religion and traditional Christianity.

But after 19 people were hospitalized and three killed during one of Ray’s “Spiritual Warrior” seminars at a sweat lodge near Sedona, Ariz., some are questioning whether Winfrey’s brand of spiritual wisdom is leading people closer to or further from the truth.

Best-selling author and Christian apologist Josh McDowell and fellow apologist Dave Sterrett of Probe Ministries released a new book – “‘O’ God: A Dialogue on Truth and Oprah’s Spirituality” – asking that very question just two days before the sweat-lodge tragedy.

“[Oprah’s] popularity is so huge,”
says Sterrett in a videotaped discussion about his new book, “that when people are getting turned off by organized religion and they think the church is full of hypocrites, they’re turning to Oprah; and we need to respond in love and truth.”

The danger is that while appearing to use Christian and inclusive language that at first seems similar to that of Christianity,” the authors explain, “Oprah teaches a message that is radically different and absolutely contrary to the true teaching of Scripture and historic Christianity.”

Video of the authors discussing their book can be seen below:

A statement from the authors describes the unusual, dialogue style of “‘O’ God: A Dialogue on Truth and Oprah’s Spirituality” this way:

O” God follows conversations of two girlfriends representing the multitudes of Oprah fans, who unwittingly place their faith in the hodgepodge of spirituality embedded in her popular TV talk show, magazine and webinars. In the end, a life-altering crisis helps crystallize the truth from counterfeit teachings. Like classic Christian author C.S. Lewis, McDowell and Sterrett decided to employ fictional narrative to disarm and entertain readers, while refusing to shy away from biblical truths, and expose Oprah’s errant teachings.

“What we want to do is to get people thinking about what they’re saying and what they’re believing, and I mean Christians,”
McDowell explains in the video discussion. “I would say the average Christian would not be able to answer the basic issues that Oprah brings up. What they could is be dogmatic and quote Scripture, and that’s it.”

He continues, “I pray with this book there’s going to be more, informed Christians who are able to think through what they believe and how to make it relevant in their culture and society.”

As WND reported, in addition to being an occasional guest on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” Ray appeared in a DVD version of “The Secret,” a New Age book authored by Rhonda Byrne that was heavily promoted by Winfrey.

Ray’s website advertises that now is the perfect time to “once and for all enjoy total abundance and true wealth: financial, relationally, mentally, physically and spiritually.”

The site proclaims, “You really do have the power within you (regardless of what everyone else does) to create the life you desire and deserve.”

Following the sweat-lodge deaths, Ray has faced potential criminal investigation and vowed to hire his own investigative team to look into the tragedy.

“This is the most difficult time I’ve ever faced,”
he told about 200 people at a subsequent seminar. “I don’t know how to deal with it really.”

From Oprah to Harpo: El Fin

Oprah Winfrey finale is a ‘love letter’, a ‘sermon’, and ‘a master class on life’

Thursday, May 26, 4:13 PM

On Wednesday, Oprah Winfrey signed off after 25 years in daytime talk TV. Lisa

?A look back at the career of daytime talk queen and media mogul Oprah Winfrey.

“There are no words to match this moment,” Oprah said Wednesday.

“Today, there will be no guest,
” Oprah told Wednesday’s gaily dressed studio-audience members, who’d been instructed to wear bright colors, according to news reports.

“This last hour is about me saying thank you. It is my love letter to you. I want to leave you all with the lessons that have been the anchor for my life and the ones that I hold most precious,
” she said in the finale of?“The Oprah Winfrey Show,” dressed in an elegant peach sheath, diamonds bobbing brilliantly off her wrist and ears.

That, in marked contrast to the excesses of her show’s Monday and Tuesday broadcasts, which, under the umbrella name “Surprise Oprah! A Farewell Spectacular,” had featured wave after wave of celebrities making the pilgrimage to the United Center in Chicago to praise her. On Wednesday, she called the two-day walk-up to the finale a “love intervention on steroids for me.”

“You will not be getting a car or a treat,
” she told her very last studio crowd pretty much right off the bat. That was smart, because there is an expectation on the part of “Oprah” audiences that they will receive new cars, or Vera Wang wedding gowns, or honeymoon packages if they’re lucky enough to be in the studio when Oprah is marking momentous occasions — such as the first episode of this last season, when she gave every audience member a trip to Australia.

The final show was a “master class on life,” wrote Moraes, while Sally Quinn called it a “sermon.” Quinn says Oprah finally came out as a true religious leader in the show, an image she has skirted around for these last 25 years. Quinn writes:

She is America’s high priestess.

Standing for the entire show, in a simple pink dress and hair soft around her shoulders, she spoke openly and unashamedly of God.

Why has her show been so successful? she asked. ”Because of my team and Jesus.” She said. “Because nothing but the hand of God has made this possible for me.” And she described what she thought of as God, “the one and only G-O-D. That’s what I’m talking about. “ And she added, “I know I have never been alone.”

She smiled. “How do I know this?I have felt the presence of God my whole life.”

It would be hard for even the most hardened atheist to watch Oprah’s final show and not have moments of asking how it could be anything but what she calls a “miracle,” for a poor, black, abandoned, sexually abused, overweight woman to become one of the richest, most powerful and famous people in the world.

It wasn’t just her own conviction about her faith which was so compelling, it was her manner in delivering her testimonial.

Oprah Winfrey has discovered one of the most effective ways of imparting her beliefs to others. Not by telling them what to do, but by getting them to decide what to do for themselves. She is the master of “free will,” an often controversial subject in contemporary religion.
