The deadline for this Endless Bonus is coming fast!
We only have until Midnight January 31st to get this done.
Will you help us send more money to Anna with this?
Most of us agree that Silver and Gold can be a great way to protect our ability to survive when we are looking at a currency crisis. Anna has written about this recently also.
That is why, when we started the pre-launch of Mint Builder a little over two years ago, you helped me become the top personal sponsor in the company in just over 2 months with over 430 people opting in to get a free membership, and some of you started a subscription for at least one collector coin each month. Other distributors have bigger downlines and paychecks because they have bigger networks, but I still hold the record for bringing more people in the company as their personal sponsor. The vast majority of those people joined because of the offer of a free membership, but didn't buy the coins. But many of you did.
My promise to you was and is that I would immediately donate what was left over from our advertising budget up to 25% of the take from Mint Builder.
That action on your part, coupled with donations from others who didn't join Mint Builder has allowed me to send Anna well over $8600.00 in the last 5 years to help with her expenses and those of the Living Law Firm. Remember that I have never charged Anna one penny for all the work I do to publish her articles, and manage this blog. We have survived on Mint Builder commissions, donations, and selling products on the two websites, and I have built a mailing list for Anna's articles of over 6000 people.
Unfortunately Mint Builder had a binary pay plan, which most people found difficult to make work for them, and many of you didn't stay with it. Matt Barkes, the CEO of Mint Builder listened to his distributor network and has initiated the all new Mint Builder 2.0 to fix the problem, with much better pricing and a new and very much simpler pay plan called a uni-level. The new plan allows for a 10% commission on everyone you personally sponsor on everything they buy each month, and a 50% matching bonus on all the commissions paid each month, on your levels 2 through 5, regardless of width. There are no longer any qualifiers or hoops you need to jump through to get a paycheck.
Just start a subscription, introduce people, and get paid.
That brings me to what I need your help with.
As a way to help people take advantage of that new uni-level system, Matt has initiated a new endless bonus for distributors that could effectively nearly double our commissions for the future.
He has offered to increase the 10% on the front line to 15%, and instead of a 50% matching bonus through level 5 he will increase it to a 100% matching bonus. These percentages would be locked in for as long as we are active in the company.
What do distributors like me need to do to qualify? Just introduce 25 people who start a subscription for at least one collector coin monthly, or help someone who is already a member in our downline to renew a subscription for one of the new bundles. That might be you. We only need to do this one time. Once we have 25 new or renewed orders the bonus gets locked in for as long as we are active.
We need about 10 more to join, or renew their subscriptions. The prices are better than they were in the member shop before the new reboot 2.0, with wholesale pricing as low as 50 cents over spot. We have some of the best prices in the industry, especially on silver, and all the pricing is live. The prices follow the spot price and update every few minutes. Remember we only have until January 31st at midnight Eastern time.
So I am asking you to help us by getting on a subscription for one coin per month for a while until we get qualified for this new Endless Bonus. Even if you can only stay on it for a couple of months it will help us lock in this Endless Bonus.
The best way to do that is to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and give them your name and information so they can look up your account and initiate a subscription for your choice of product.
Just go to my website at https://mintbuilder.com/296110 and click on Get Started in the top right corner to see the products in the orange boxes. Those are the subscriptions you can pick from. You only need one item that has a coin.
If you still have your ID number, and your original password, you can log in to the new site and do it yourself on line. But if you don't have your ID I might be able to find it for you. Call me at 406 889 3183. If you don't have your password there is a lost password link on the login page.
If you send them an email with your phone number and tell them you want to order they will call you.
Make sure they find you in the system before they place the order so we get the credit. My Id is 296110. I should be listed as your sponsor. We are listed as Paul & Gladys Stramer.
This would be a great help for us and Anna if Mint Builder will pay this endless bonus from now on.
Thank you in advance for whatever you can do, and if you can't do Mint Builder but want to help you could use the PayPal buttons on the right column of this blog.
God Bless you all.

This note is addressed through Bathsheba and will be understood by those who need to know:
It is best always to remember Merlin's prophecy.
The White Snake has no power over the Red Dragon and fighting will not change that.
The Seals have been broken. The Blessed have returned. It's time for celebration.
If, as you say, you want the original Treaty of Peace with the Devics honored, that is much in our way of thinking, too.
If, as you say, you want the greatness of Scotland honored, that, too, is easy to respect and arrange.
Nothing you have suggested seems outlandish or wrong or improper -- except the idea that six billion people have to die in order to bring this planet back into balance.
Cooperatively, we have the technology and know-how to repair every aspect of the natural environment and resolve the waste management problems, too.
As for the broken economic and banking system, we have all the answers for that, also. King Darren has already agreed.
Killing six billion people would cause a vast labor shortage if the object is to turn the Earth back into a garden space and create peace. And if that is not the goal that unites us, what is?
You know as well as I do that such a catastrophe would create no enduring peace. Quite the opposite.
That said, let go that one contention, and the rest is easy. The Great Dipole is complete. The Heavenly Host is content. The Interstice is cleared. The Ancient Kingdoms are restored.
There is nothing left, except your peace--- and while I cannot grant your desire to have the Romanovs live again, or return the child you once were, my Father can.
In view of all you have been given and the kindness of life within you, is it really such a stretch to trust the Lord and Giver of Life to "make all things new"? Even them? Even you?

If anything bad happens in Richmond, Virginia, tomorrow, we are holding you and your respective governments entirely, 100%, commercially and personally responsible for it.
"Governor" Northam is administering a "Commonwealth" entity and unnecessarily and recklessly imposing upon law-abiding Americans in violation of their Constitutional guarantees.
This affront to our substantive law and to us is duly noted, on top of the many other offenses that your respective governments have promulgated in Breach of Trust.
It is also duly noted that the in respect to the British Commonwealth United States the Queen acts as the Overseer for the Pope, so that in effect, Pope Francis is the Principal responsible for any bloodshed or acrimony or public damage in Virginia tomorrow.
In the event that Governor Northam does not show appropriate and due diligence to ensure that he is not presuming upon Americans who are lawfully guaranteed their absolute right to keep and bear arms, we shall hold both the Queen and the Pope accountable for condoning through their employees and agents the promotion of violent insurrection and conflict on our shores.
You have both been given due and appropriate Notice that illegal and immoral contracting practices have been employed by the British Crown and CAPSTONE to create fraudulent and unconscionable citizenship contracts with Americans. These contracts are invalid, null and void.
This conspiracy to evade your responsibilities under the Constitutions has been discovered and fully vetted and both your administrations have been found wanting.
You need to correct, not exacerbate this problem. Any harm, any public disturbance, any destruction of people or property will be held against you and charged at a rate of ten trillion dollars per life lost, and one billion dollars per house or building damaged.
We are posting this commercial fee schedule in advance to make it clear that there will be unpleasant consequences for you as well as for the people of this country should you continue on this reckless path.

Any Fool should know that a gas accounting for 1/300th of one percent of the atmosphere (carbon dioxide) and alterations in the minute amount of this gas caused by human activities, could never account for any such phenomenon as "Global Warming" or "Climate Change".
Whatever else we know, we know that much right off the cuff, without years of public debate, without spending billions of dollars on "climate research".
Barring the existence of some unknown, unobserved, mysterious catalytic effect, there is simply no way that variations in the amount of carbon dioxide could change anything. The total amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is far too small have any general impact at all.
Honestly, it seems to be a contest to find out how gullible we are, and what line of horse hooey they can get away with as an excuse for their power-grabbing and taxation and depopulation schemes.
Here (see link) you have competent science giving you a reasonable and documented explanation of climate change. The warming is caused by reduced cloud cover.
2020/01/18/climate-change- hoax-collapses-as-new-science- finds-human-activity-has- virtually-zero-impact-on- global-temperatures/
And guess what? The reduced cloud cover is being exacerbated, if not caused by the Chemtrail spraying, which kills forests and acts as a drying agent as well as an environmental inflammatory agent. And this is being brought to us by who?
The same madmen who just published this craziness --- Vatican official promoting New World Order and the "Removal" of 6 Billion People:
vatican-offical-introduce-new- world-order-and-remove-6- billion-people-314705?fbclid= IwAR2k5lwDx5dCQoQRxUc- 6i7FYhbU97Rk4mu2jY9tCYA3OoeVaJ EA-uksdWU
I have a better solution.
The People of the World send their compliments to the Italian Government and demand that they revoke The Lateran Treaty signed by Nazi-Collaborator Benito Mussolini, and dissolve the basis for Vatican City's international independent city-state status.
Next, we arrest all members of the Roman Catholic Clergy operating above the level of Parish Priests and all upper level management of the [former] Vatican City State who are non-clerical employees.
Next, we nationalize all Roman Catholic Church properties and bank accounts and securities holdings worldwide, leaving only local church buildings and their immediate grounds and cemeteries and attached buildings undisturbed for the use of innocent parishioners.
Next, we arrest the senior management of the slightly over 700 corporations worldwide who have been engaged in the interlocking trust directorate scheme promoted and implemented by the Vatican and Universal Postal Union and Bank of International Settlements.
In tandem with all this, we search and destroy and/or confiscate all planes used to distribute Chemtrail pollution and seize the assets of all companies and management-level individuals engaged in this criminal activity and similarly confiscate all assets of corporations engaged in disruptive weather warfare and scalar resonance "tests" impacting "non-domestic" populations in countries around the world.
So, we've been foxed into using "credit" as money, and then not even getting the credit applied to our accounts. We've believed that "the Americans" dropped nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and that turns out to be "the US" and another Big Lie. We've been told that the death of one wandering Jewish prophet paid for all the sins of mankind forever, and have yet to see the
"PAID IN FULL" receipt from his self-proclaimed "representatives".
And in keeping with this Tradition of Big Lies, we've been told that the "desperate situation" caused by changes in 1/300th of one percent of the atmosphere justifies Draconian taxes and coercive regulatory practices on a planet-wide basis, and, moreover, the death of six billion innocent people.
Are you getting all this?
The Roman Catholic Church. Again.
Catholics, if you don't want to be held responsible for this, and don't want your Church held responsible for this, you need to get on the move and protest in no uncertain terms.
United Nations? If your Officers and your corporations don't want to be held responsible for this, and don't want your organizations forced into Chapter 7 involuntary bankruptcy for crimes against humanity, you'd better haul rump, too.

It is happily noted that someone, somewhere, has realized that the Second Article has far more power and standing as Law of Substance than any theoretical "Second Amendment", and that this principle guarantee cannot be violated as a taking against the Will.
Kudos and congratulations to whoever had the good sense to notice that there is a difference between an "Article" of the Constitution and an "Amendment" to the Constitution.
That said, and in the same spirit of awareness --- when you take reference to "civil rights" and Federal Code sections (except for the explicitly declared purpose of reminding them of what their own law requires) you are placing yourself under their law, not yours, and you are then unavoidably separating yourself from the protections of the actual Constitution.
You can't be "in" and "out" at the same time. You can't claim "Equal Civil Rights" as a Federal Citizen, and at the same time claim Natural and Unalienable Rights (and Constitutional Guarantees) as an American.
I cannot say this often enough or emphatically enough: both US Territorial and Municipal "Federal" citizenship(s) are created by the Constitutions, so either variety of "US Citizen" are not Parties to the Constitutions and cannot make any direct claim to any constitutional guarantee.
American State Citizens are direct Parties to the Constitutions and have the right of enforcement, but US Citizens --- either Territorial or Municipal, do not.
Read that again: US Citizens are not parties to any Constitution and have never had any Constitutional rights or guarantees. As long as you persist in claiming to be any variety of "US Citizen" ---- neither do you.
At best such Persons can hope that the Congress honors its agreement to provide "Equal Civil Rights" and this is a vain hope, as they have already declared a "state of emergency" which, for Federal Citizens, suspends their "Equal Civil Rights" access to the Constitutions.
So, here you are, mis-identified as some sort of US Citizen, depending on second-class "Equal Civil Rights" that have already been suspended.
This is not a tenable situation to be in, and if you wish to access the protections and guarantees you are heir to, then you must take pro-active measures to declare and record your correct political status as an American-----not a US Citizen dependent on "Equal Civil Rights".
For help getting back to where you should be go to: www.TheAmericanStatesAssembly.
net and declare and record your correct political status as an American today.
Don't wait. Don't try to argue it in court. Secure your evidence and position today. I am constantly contacted by people who get themselves in trouble with the Federal Authorities and then after-the-fact want to declare their correct political status and enforce the substantive law in their favor.
It doesn't work that way.
Once you are in their courts and identified as one of their citizens, you are obligated to obey their policies and statutory laws. Any attempt to change your political status in "mid-stream" looks suspicious and self-serving and is discredited as evasion.
Most Americans have been blissfully ignorant of their obligation to declare and record their political status as Americans, and as a result, are incorrectly identified as British Territorial United States Citizens or Municipal (Federal Civil Service) citizens of the United States----and there is no evidence on the Public Record otherwise.
So --- if you want to enforce your Second Article right to keep and bear arms, you must declare and record your political status as an American State Citizen and access your Guarantees directly, instead of relying upon the rogues in Congress to honor their action granting "Equal Civil Rights" to Federal United States Citizens.
What the Congress gives to its Employees and Dependents (Equal Civil Rights) the Congress can take away.
What is owed to you directly by international treaty and service contract is a different story.

Rev. Fr. Leonard Goffine's
The Church's Year
The Church's Year
In the Introit of this day's Mass the Church calls upon all creatures to thank God for the Incarnation of His only-begotten Son.
INTROIT Let all the earth adore Thee, O God and sing to Thee: let it sing a psalm to Thy name (Ps. 65:4). Shout with joy to God all the earth, sing ye a psalm to His name: give glory to His praise (Ps. 65:1-2). Glory be to the Father and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
COLLECT Almighty and eternal God, Who disposest all things in heaven and on earth: mercifully hear the supplications of Thy people, and give Thy peace to our times. Through our Lord Jesus Christ Thy Son, who liveth and reigneth with Thee, in the Unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end, Amen.
EPISTLE (Rom.12:6-16). Brethren: We have different gifts, according to the grace that is given us: either prophecy, to be used according to the rule of faith, or ministry in ministering, or he that teacheth in doctrine, he that exhorteth in exhorting, he that giveth with simplicity, he that ruleth with carefulness, he that sheweth mercy with cheerfulness. Let love be without dissimulation. Hating that which is evil, cleaving to that which is good: loving one another with the charity of brotherhood: with honor preventing one another: in carefulness not slothful: in spirit fervent: serving the Lord: rejoicing in hope: patient in tribulation: instant in prayer: communicating to the necessities of the saints: pursuing hospitality: bless them that persecute you: bless and curse not. Rejoice with them that rejoice, weep with them that weep: being of one mind, one towards another: not minding high things, but consenting to the humble. Be not wise in your own conceits.
EXPLANATION. St. Paul in this epistle exhorts every Christian to make good use of the gifts of God; if one receives an office, he must see well to it, so that he can give an account to God of the faithful performance of his duties. He exhorts especially to brotherly love which we should practice by charitable works; such as, receiving strangers hospitably, giving alms to those who are in need, and to those who by misfortune or injustice have lost their property; he commands us, at the same time, to rejoice in the welfare of our neighbor, as we rejoice at our own good fortune, and to grieve at his misfortunes as we would over those which befall us.
How is brotherly love best preserved?
By the virtue of humility which makes us esteem our neighbor above ourselves, consider his good qualities only, bear patiently his defects, and always meet him in a friendly, respectful, and indulgent manner. Humility causes us to live always in peace with our fellowmen, while among the proud, where each wishes to be the first, there is continual strife and dissatisfaction (Prov. 13:10).
INSTRUCTION FOR SUPERIORS
Those have to expect a severe sentence from God, who merely for temporal gain, seek profitable offices, and thrust themselves therein whether capable or not, and if capable care very little whether they fulfill the duties required, or perhaps make the fulfillment of them depend upon bribes. Of such God makes terrible complaint: Thy princes (judges) are faithless, companions of thieves: they all love bribes, they run after rewards. They judge not for the fatherless; and the widow's cause comes not into them (Is. 1:23). A most severe judgment shall be for them that bear rule (Wisd. 6:6).
ASPIRATION Grant us, O Lord, Thy grace, that according to Thy will, we may follow the instructions of St. Paul in regard to humility and love, have compassion upon all suffering and needy, think little of ourselves, and descend to the lowest, that we may, one day, be elevated with them in heaven.
GOSPEL (Jn. 2:1-11). At that time there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee: and the mother of Jesus was there. And Jesus also was invited, and his disciples, to the marriage. And the wine failing, the mother of Jesus saith to him: They have no wine. And Jesus saith to her: Woman, what is it to me and to thee? my hour is not yet come. His mother saith to the waiters: Whatsoever he shall say to you, do ye. Now there were set there six water-pots of stone, according to the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three measures apiece. Jesus saith to them: Fill the water-pots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. And Jesus saith to them: Draw out now, and carry to the chief steward of the feast. And they carried it. And when the chief steward had tasted the water made wine, and knew not whence it was, but the waiters knew who had drawn the water; the chief steward calleth the bridegroom, and saith to him: Every man at first setteth forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now. This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee: and manifested his glory, and his disciples believed in him.
Why was Christ and His mother present at this marriage?
In order to honor this humble and God-fearing couple who, with faithful hearts, had invited Him and His mother to their wedding; to give us an example of humility; to assist them in their poverty, and save their good name by changing water into wine; to reveal His dignity as the Messiah to His disciples by this miracle; and to sanctify by His presence the marriages that are contracted in the spirit of the Church.
Alas! how few marriages of our time could Jesus honor with His presence, because He is invited neither by fervent prayer, nor by the chaste life of the couple: He is excluded rather, by the frequent immorality of the married couple and their guests.
Why was Mary interested in this married couple?
Because she is merciful, and the Mother of Mercy, and willingly assists all the poor and afflicted who fear God. From this incident, St. Bonaventure judges of the many graces which we can hope for through Mary, now that she reigns in heaven; "For," says he, "if Mary while yet on earth was so compassionate, how much more so is she now, reigning in heaven!" He gives the reason by adding: "Mary now that she sees the face of God, knows our necessities far better than when she was on earth, and in proportion to the increase of her compassion, her power to aid us has been augmented." Ah! why do we not take refuge in all our necessities to this merciful mother, who although unasked assists the needy?
Why did Christ say to Mary: Woman, what is it to me and to thee?
This seemingly harsh reply of Christ was no reproach, for Mary had made her request only through love and mercy, and Christ calls those blessed who are merciful, but he wished to show that in the performance of divine work, the will of His heavenly Father alone should be consulted. He meant to remind her that He had not received the gift of miracles from her as the son of woman, but from His eternal Father, in accordance with whose will He would do that which she asked when the hour designed by God would come. Though the hour had not come, yet He granted the wish of His mother, who knew that her divine Son refused none of her requests, and so she said to the servants: "Whatsoever He shall say to you, do ye." Behold the great power of Mary's intercession! Neglect not, therefore, to take refuge in this most powerful mother!
What are we taught by the words: My hour is not yet come?
These words teach us that we should in all things await God's appointed time, and in things belonging to God and His honor, act only by divine direction, without any human motives.
What does the scarcity of wine signify?
In a spiritual sense the want of wine may be understood to signify the lack of love between married people, which is principally the case with those who enter this state through worldly motives, for the sake of riches, beauty of person, or who have before marriage kept up sinful intercourse. These should ask God for the forgiveness of their sins, bear the hardships of married life in the spirit of penance, and change the wrong motives they had before marriage; by doing so God will supply the scarcity of wine, that is the lack of true love, and change the waters of misery into the wine of patient affection.
Why did Christ command them to take the wine to the steward?
That the steward, whose office required him to be attentive to the conduct of the guests, and to know the quality of the wine, should give his judgment in regard to the excellence of this, and be able to testify to the miracle before all the guests.
ASPIRATION O my most merciful Jesus! I would rather drink in this world the sour wine of misery than the sweet wine of pleasure, that in heaven I may taste the perfect wine of eternal joy.
INSTRUCTION ON THE HOLY SACRAMENT OF MATRIMONY
What is Matrimony?
Matrimony is the perfect, indissoluble union of two free persons of different sex, for the purpose of propagating the human race, mutually to bear the burdens of life and to prevent sin (I Cor. 7:2).
Who instituted Matrimony?
God Himself, the Creator of all things (Gen. 1:27-28). He brought to man the helpmate, whom He formed from one of the ribs of Adam, that she who came from his heart, might never depart therefrom, but cling to him in the indissoluble bond of love (Gen. 2:18, 24). To this original, divine institution Christ refers (Mt. 19:4-6), and the Church declares the bond of marriage perpetual and indissoluble.
Is Matrimony a Sacrament?
Yes; according to the testimony of the Fathers, the Church has held it such from the times of the apostles, which she could not do, had Christ not raised it to the dignity of a Sacrament. St. Paul even calls it a great Sacrament, because it is symbolical of the perpetual union of Christ with His Church; and the Council of Trent declares: "If any one says that Matrimony is not really and truly one of the seven Sacraments of the Church instituted by Christ, but an invention of men that imparts no grace, let him be anathema" (Conc. Trid., Sess. XXIV, can. 1).
What graces does this Sacrament impart?
The grace of preserving matrimonial fidelity inviolate: the grace of educating children as Christians; of patiently enduring the unavoidable difficulties of married life, and of living peaceably with each other. Married people are indeed greatly in need of these graces, in order to fulfill their mutual obligations.
What is the external sign in the Sacrament of Matrimony?
The union of two single persons in Matrimony, which according to the regulations of the Council of Trent (Conc. Trid., Sess. XXIV, can. 1), must be formed publicly in the presence of the pastor, or with his permission before another priest, and two witnesses.
What preparations are to be made to receive the grace of this Sacrament?
1. The first and best preparation is a pure and pious life. 2. The light of the Holy Ghost should be invoked to know whether one is called to this state of life. 3. The parents and the father-confessor should be asked for advice. 4. The choice should be made in regard to a Christian heart, and a gentle disposition rather than to beauty and wealth. 5. The immediate preparation is, to purify the conscience, if it has not already been done, by a good general confession, and by the reception of the most holy Sacrament of the Altar. Before their marriage the young couple should ask their parents' blessing, should hear the nuptial Mass with devotion, with the intention of obtaining God's grace to begin their new state of life well, and finally they should commend themselves with confidence to the protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary and her spouse St. Joseph.
Why are there so many unhappy marriages?
Because so many people prepare the way by sins and vices, and continue to sin without interruption, and without true amendment until marriage, therefore always make sacrilegious confessions, even perhaps immediately before marriage. Besides this many enter the married life on account of carnal intentions, or other earthly motives; in many cases they do not even ask God for His grace; without any proper preparation for such an important, sacred act, on their marriage day they go to church with levity and afterwards celebrate their wedding with but little modesty. Is it any wonder that such married people receive no blessing, no grace, when they render themselves so unworthy?
Why did God institute married life?
That children might be brought up honestly and as Christians, and that they should be instructed especially in matters of faith; that married people should sustain each other in the difficulties of life, and mutually exhort one another to a pious life; and lastly, that the sin of impurity might be avoided. For they who in such manner receive matrimony as to shut out God from themselves, and from their mind, and to give themselves to their lust, as the horse and mule which have not understanding, over them the devil hath power (Too. 6:17).
'With what intentions should the married state be entered?
With such intentions as the young Tobias and his bride had, who before the marriage ceremony, ardently prayed God for His grace, and took their wedding breakfast in the fear of the Lord (Too. 14:15). Hence God's blessing was with them until death. If all young people would enter the married state thus, it would certainly be holy, God-pleasing and blessed, and the words of St. Paul, spoken to wives, would come true unto them: Yet she shall be saved by bearing children, if she continue in faith, and love, and sanctification with sobriety (I Tim. 2:15).
Why are the bans of marriage published three times in Church?
That all impediments which would render the marriage unlawful may be made known. Such impediments are: consanguinity, clandestine marriages, etc. Therefore, any one who is aware of such impediments, is bound to make them known to the pastor.
Why is the marriage performed in the presence of the parish priest?
Because the Catholic Church expressly declares that those marriages which are not performed in presence of the pastor, or with his permission before another priest, and two witnesses, are null and void (Conc. Trid., Sess. XXIV can. 1)1; and because the blessing of the priest, which he imparts in the name of the Church, gives the couple, if they are in a state of grace, strength, fortitude and grace to be faithful to each other, to endure all trials patiently, and to be safe from all the influences of the evil enemy."
Why do they join hands before the priest, and two witnesses?
By this they bind themselves before God and His Church to remain true to each other, and to be ready to assist each other in all adversities. The bridegroom puts a ring on the bride's finger which should remind her of her duty of inviolable fidelity; to this end the priest signs and seals this holy union with the unbloody Sacrifice of the New Law.
Can the bond of marriage be dissolved in the Catholic Church?
A valid marriage, contracted with the free consent of each of the parties, can according to the plain doctrine of the Scriptures, the constant teaching and practice of the Church, be dissolved only by the death of one of the parties. If the pope or a bishop, for important reasons, gives a divorce, this is only partial, and neither can marry again while the other lives. Such a marriage would not be valid. How pure and holy are the doctrine and practice of the Catholic Church in this the most important and sacred of all human relations, preserving its inviolability and sanctity; while, on the contrary, by means of the wanton doctrine of the heretics, which for trivial reasons entirely dissolves the marriage contract, this sacred union is made the deepest ignominy of mankind, and the play-ball of human passions and caprice!
What is thought of mixed marriages, or marriages between Catholics and Protestants?
The Catholic Church has always condemned such marriages, because of the great dangers to which the Catholic party is unavoidably exposed as well as the offspring. Such marriages promote indifference in matters of religion, by which the spiritual life of the soul is destroyed; they are a hindrance to domestic peace, cause mutual aversion, quarrels, and confusion; they give scandal to servants; they interfere with the Christian education of the children, even render it impossible, and they frequently lead to apostasy and despair. But the Catholic Church condemns especially those mixed marriages, in which either all or a number of the children are brought up in heresy, and she can never bless and look upon those as her children who do not fear to withdraw themselves and their own children from the only saving faith, and expose them to the danger of eternal ruin. Therefore, those Catholics who enter the matrimonial union with Protestants, although the marriage if lawfully contracted is valid, commit a mortal sin if they permit their children to be brought up in heresy, and should it not be their full intention to bring up their children in the Catholic faith at the time of their marriage, they would commit a sacrilege.
What should the newly married couple do immediately after the ceremony is performed?
They should kneel and thank God for the graces received in this holy Sacrament, in such or similar words: "Ratify, we beseech Thee, O Lord, that which by Thy grace Thou hast wrought in us, that we may keep that which in Thy presence we have promised unto the day of our Lord Jesus Christ." That they may keep their promise made at the altar, they should always remember the duties laid down to them by the priest at the time of their marriage, and the exhortations which are taken from the epistle of St. Paul to the Ephesians (Eph. 5:29, 31), wherein he instructs married people how they should comport themselves towards each other, and recalls to them as an example the union of Christ with His Church, and His love for her. To the husbands he says, they should love their wives as Christ loved His Church, for which He even gave Himself up to death; from this is seen, that men should assist their wives even unto death, in all need, and not treat them as servants. To the wives St. Paul says, that they as the weaker should be in all reasonable things obedient to their husbands, as the Church is obedient to Christ; for as Christ is the head of the Church, so is the husband the head of the wife. Experience proves there is no better way for women to win the hearts of their husbands than by amiable obedience and ready love, while, on the contrary, a querulous, imperative deportment robs them of their husbands' affections, and even causes them to be regarded with aversion. St. Paul says further; that husbands should love their wives (and consequently wives their husbands) as their own bodies, because married people are, as it were, one. They shall be two in one flesh; no man ever hated his own flesh, but nourisheth and cherisheth it, as also Christ doth the Church (Eph. 5:29, 31). How unjustly and barbarously do those act, who, instead of loving one another, rather hate and outrage each other, and cause the loss of their property, and by detraction steal their honor! These do not consider that he who hates and disgraces his partner in life, hates and disgraces himself; while according to the words of St. Paul he who loves her, loves himself. If married people would remain in constant love and unity, it is most necessary that they should patiently bear with each other's infirmities, wrongs, and defects, exhort one another with mildness and affection, keep their adversities, trials, and sufferings as much as possible to themselves, and complain in prayer only to God, who alone can aid them. By impatience, quarrels, and complaints the cross becomes only heavier and the evil worse. Finally, not only on their wedding day, but often through life, they should earnestly consider that they have not entered the married state that they may inordinately serve the pleasures of the body, but to have children who will one day inhabit heaven according to the will of God; as the angel said to Tobias: "For they who in such manner receive matrimony, as to shut out God from themselves and from their mind, and to give themselves to their lust as the horse and mule, which have not understanding, over them the devil hath power" (Tob. 6:17).
PRAYER Most merciful Jesus! who didst work Thy first miracle at the wedding in Cana by changing water into wine, thereby revealing Thy divine power and majesty, and honoring matrimony: grant we beseech Thee, that Thy faithful may ever keep sacred and inviolate the holy sacrament of Matrimony, and that they may so live in it truthfully, in the fear of the Lord, that they may not put an obstacle in the way of obtaining heaven for themselves, and their children.
1. In all such dioceses of the United States, where the Council of Trent has not been published, civil marriages are considered valid. The Catholic, however, who becomes married by civil authority commits a mortal sin, except in case of extreme necessity. To be married by a sectarian preacher is looked upon as a denial of faith, and incurs excommunication.

There is more than enough evidence to prove that whatever hopped-up fire-bombing occurred at Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the end of World War II, it was not a nuclear bomb and not a nuclear disaster. Somehow, perfectly sane people, including physicists, have failed to note the radioactive half-life of the isotopes involved.
If the bombs unleashed at Hiroshima or Nagasaki had actually been nuclear bombs, those cities and a large bit of the countryside around them would be dead and uninhabitable as a result of nuclear pollution and that pollution would remain for tens of thousands of years---- like Sodom and Gemorrah, not like Hiroshima and Nagasaki today.
There would also be evident vitrification of the soil and subsoil at least two meters down.
So, we have another Big Lie to face up to and it's not a matter of "National Security". National Shame and money laundering is more like it.
I don't believe in nuclear weapons in the sense that the popular notion of "nuclear explosion" has it, but I do believe in nuclear pollution---and the deadly effects that radioactive isotopes can have on biological systems. Fukushima, the reactor, not a bomb, is creating exactly this horrendous scenario in the Pacific Ocean.
Radio-isotopes are very silent, effective, and long-lived biological poisons.
That's why the pollution caused by including "spent" nuclear fuel in the payloads of bombs used during recent wars in the Mideast is a war crime against humanity and against the Earth---- a crime against our soldiers and a crime against the civilian populace of the Middle East where this heinous thing was done.
That in itself is more than enough reason to summon an International War Crimes Tribunal to Nuremberg.
Similarly, it is the pollution potentially caused by a nuclear "dirty bomb" that is implied by the Baby Boomer bombs ---- not just physical explosive destruction which could be caused by any combination of metallic firebomb materials including Thermite, powdered Barium, etc.
The advantage to these monsters in the use of dirty bomb technology is that it helps prevent/preclude recovery of surviving records and examination of the bomb site. I hope that those promoting this scheme will now realize that the records will still exist and are still safe no matter what they do to the record repositories in Kansas and Colorado.
Also, the important records had already been removed from the Kansas repository, so that tells us right there that someone knew something and that the records had already been cashiered, stolen, or otherwise transported for purposes unknown by persons unknown. A big nasty explosion with radioactive fallout would seal the site and provide an excuse for the theft to remain undetected and provide an excuse to say that the records had been destroyed.
Just like 911.
The rats are not having a good week. And I personally hope it gets even hotter for them.

Lexington And Concord Redux In Virginia
Tragically, most Americans do not have any idea what it was that actually triggered America’s War for Independence. The primary reason was not “taxation without representation,” or taxes of any kind, for that matter. And it was certainly not because our Founding Fathers were a bunch of anti-government extremists or demon-possessed puppets of the Illuminati.

The Great Fraud scheme we have unraveled comes back, always, predictably, to the same Persons, the same Offices, and the same Institutions.
It is all caused and operated equally by omission and by deceit.
The intended "Gift Recipients" of all the lucre and physical assets on Earth were set up to be the Pope and the Holy See. These were intended to be the only unincorporated Public Office (Pope) and the only unincorporated Government (Holy See) left standing.
This means that they would "inherit" everything of actual value on Earth, own all land, all businesses, all other governments, all people ---- and be able to run everything through their Vassal organizations, the incorporated government services corporations, all acting under the auspices of the United Nations organization, all secretly owned and operated by the Vichy French UN Corp.
All power and ownership interest would belong to the Holy See and be exercised by the Pope by Default, because the living heirs and rulers of our countries were deliberately mis-characterized and left without disclosure or Notice that the entire world was in probate.
You all know what happens in probate, don't you? Well, everything gets thrown into a Slush Pile, and the Heirs have to come forward in the absence of a Will and claim back their own as best they can. Otherwise, their assets are deemed "abandoned" and up for grabs.
That's what they have tried to claim about America and much of the rest of the world, too -- as a means of gaining control of all assets on Earth.
Rather than admit what they've done and the deals with the Devil [aka "Marduk"] that they've made, the various parties responsible for this circumstance have tried to avoid the facts. Among the salient points:
Benedict XVI separated himself so that he could still act as Pope in "the ministerial office" --- that is, the unincorporated Office---- and act in behalf of the Holy See, while Francis took on closure of the Pontificate --- the corporate secular government of the Church, and the incorporated Vatican, too.
By their reckoning, there can be only one government, one church, one monetary system, one megalithic hell hole to live in. And they think of that as paradise. The Great Cause. No borders. Everyone mish-mashed together. Everyone enslaved.
One must ask ---- having control of all the corporations on Earth wasn't enough for the Pope? Especially in view of the fact that he didn't do his duty to control the corporations and liquidate those engaged in criminal acts?
So now they are deliberately folding the umbrella and rushing to try to pull off their intended fraud----when they need to admit that their Plan has been observed, the Great Fraud has been exposed, and none of it is going to work.
Let us also observe that the Queen is in on this plan and has been since June of 1953, when she abdicated the actual Throne and occupied The Chair of the Estates, instead. Read that: the British Throne has been vacant since 1953 and this has been fully proven in court. She can't go back to the Throne, because she broke her Coronation Vow.
So at this moment, the entirety of the British Homeland and the British Commonwealth is "unclaimed" by anyone having standing to do it, and the Principal Parties are trying their best to ignore the fact that The United States of America has "risen from the dead" and has the standing and is making the claim for all the American assets.
A 'General Melee" must shortly ensue, in which all the member corporations of the United Nations acting "as" governments must come to terms with the fact that they aren't really national governments at all and never have been. By definition, they are just commercial corporations in the "government services" business.
So far, the only government on Earth to have itself together, standing ready to deal with the facts, other than The United States of America, is Russia. Vladimir Putin has claimed his living status and is now occupying the vacant Throne of the Czar.
This shouldn't be interpreted as a power-grab by him, because it's not. And it won't be a power-grab when someone competent stands up to claim back the Throne of Great Britain, either.
Someone with the correct standing has to act for all the people in each country to receive back their land and soil assets. There has to be a lawful government --- not just a "legal" government --- present and making the claim for each country, or the bogus "abandoned assets" claim rears its ugly head.
Like us, the Russians woke up to the way that Operations of Law have been used to set up this situation, where it is all going, and what they need to do to stop it.
And that is indeed a great comfort to us and to every thinking soul on this planet. It means that The United States of America --- the actual country -- does not stand alone.
