Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars and the Government Shutdown

Psalm 2 mans government is a fail

Psalm 2King James Version (KJV)

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,
Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

Psalm 64 prayer for deliverance

1 Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy
2Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity: 
3 Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words: 
4 That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not. 
5 They encourage themselves in an evil matter:they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them? 
6 They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep. 
7 But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded. 
8 So they shall make their own tongue tofall upon themselves: all that see them shall flee away
9 And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall wisely consider of his doing. 

10 The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.

Proverbs 11:28 wealth is not to be trusted

“He that trusteth in his riches shall fall: but the righteous shall flourish as a branch.” 

Proverbs 22:16 oppressing the poor to gain wealth, and people giving to already rich charities, governments, and organizations (such as these mega churches) that take 90% of the proceeds for themselves while doing very little to help the people.

The Joel Osteen and Creflo Dollar Incidents were wake up calls to the Church to RISE UP AND COME OUT and come to Churches such as this one, where we have an actual plan for the community, but no money and very little bodies implement that plan.

“He that oppresseth the poor to increase his riches, and he that giveth to the rich, shall surely come to want.” 

2 Peter 2:10 real authority comes from God, because when you walk in the flesh you are violating the laws of the Government of God.  Some of you will point to Romans 13, but remember the American Government is only here for these Reasons:

1. To Chastize the Black-Brown Israelites
2. To Spread the Last Days Gospel around the world with freedom of religion and travel
3. To provide Charity, asylum, and food to the rest of the world, because it was blessed to do so- like Sodom and Gomorah was.

America is showing it's fangs.  They are becoming harder and Stiff necked to the Black-brown Israelites, while they are making it harder for people to travel and spread the Gospel if they need to.  America has been paying farmers to not grow food for years, which is helping to starve out the world population.  At the same time, we have a president kicking out Israelites people from bible believing countries.

America is starting to outlive its purpose.

Well except for the last purpose- before it meets a similar fate as Sodom and Gomorrah.

4. To help bring on the Beast system and Spread: Luciferianism, Filthy Lucre, wickedness, and International Racism against the Black-Brown Israelites; so that it can be judged.  Then eventually the World can be Judged.

These Government Shutdown are the beginning of America outlasting its purpose.

Once that happens the World Armies will destroy America in an hour.

2 Peter 2:10King James Version (KJV)

10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.

Trials are momentary

James 1:1-13King James Version (KJV)

James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.
My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted:
10 But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.
11 For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withereth the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.
12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:

1 Clement 21 Through charity and Welfare America covers it sins.  Salvation is also works based.  I myself have dedicated a life to Social Service, and Social Justice Protesting.  For that I have suffered Imprisonments, Impoverishment, and have had my family broken up.  I have done these things, because I have always believed even when I said at point in the past that I didn't believe.  Works covers the multitude of transgressions, because works is a form of salvation.




1 Clement 21- from the Lost Books of the Bible


1 The value which God puts upon love and unity: the effects of a true charity, 8 which is the gift of God, and must be obtained by prayer.
HE that has the love that is in Christ, let him keep the commandments of Christ.
2 For who is able to express the  2 obligation of the love of God? What man is sufficient to declare, and is fitting, the excellency of its beauty?
3 The height to which charity leads is inexpressible.
4 Charity  3 unites us to God;  4 charity covers the multitude of sins:  5 charity endures all things, is long-suffering in all things.
5 There is nothing base and sordid in charity; charity lifts not itself up above others; admits of no divisions; is not seditious; but does all things in peace and concord.
6 By charity were all the elect of God made perfect: Without it nothing is pleasing and acceptable in the sight of God.
7 Through charity did the Lord  6 join us unto himself; whilst for the love that he bore towards us, our Lord Jesus Christ gave his own blood for us, by the will of God; his flesh for our flesh; his soul, for our souls.
8 ¶ Ye see, beloved, how great and wonderful a thing charity is: and how that no expressions are sufficient to declare its perfection.
9 But who is fit to be found in it? Even such only as God shall vouchsafe to make so.
10 Let us therefore pray to him, and beseech him, that we may be worthy of it; that so we may live in charity; being unblameable, without human propensities, without respect of persons.
11 All the ages of the world, from Adam, even unto this day, are passed away; but they who have been made perfect in love, have by the grace of God obtained a place among the righteous; and shall be made manifest in the  7 judgment of the kingdom of Christ.
12 For it is written,  8 Enter into thy chambers for a little space, till my anger and indignation shall pass away: And I will remember the good day, and will raise you up out of your graves.
13 Happy  9 then shall we be, beloved, if we shall have fulfilled the commandments of God, in the unity of love; that so, through love, our sins may be forgiven us.

p. 136
14 For so it is written,  1 Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord imputeth no sin, and in whose mouth there is no guile.
15 Now this blessing is fulfilled in those who are chosen by God through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

AN EXCERPT FROM: Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars

Introduction to Economic Amplifiers Economic amplifiers are the active components of economic engineering. The basic characteristic of any amplifier (mechanical, electrical, or economic) is that it receives an input control signal and delivers energy from an independent energy source to a specified output terminal in a predictable relationship to that input control signal. The simplest form of an economic amplifier is a device called advertising. If a person is spoken to by a T.V. advertiser as if he were a twelve-year-old, then, due to suggestibility, he will, with a certain probability, respond or react to that suggestion with the uncritical response of a twelve-year-old and will reach in to his economic reservoir and deliver its energy to buy that product on impulse when he passes it in the store. An economic amplifier may have several inputs and output. Its response might be instantaneous or delayed. Its circuit symbol might be a rotary switch if its options are exclusive, qualitative, "go" or "no-go", or it might have its parametric input/ output relationships specified by a matrix with internal energy sources represented. Whatever its form might be, its purpose is to govern the flow of energy from a source to an output sink in direct relationship to an input control signal. For this reason, it is called an active circuit element or component. Economic Amplifiers fall into classes called strategies, and, in comparison with electronic amplifiers, the specific internal functions of an economic amplifier are called logistical instead of electrical. Therefore, economic amplifiers not only deliver power gain but also, in effect, are used to cause changes in the economic circuitry. In the design of an economic amplifier we must have some idea of at least five functions, which are:

PAGE 30 Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars (1) the available input signals, (2) the desired output-control objectives, (3) the strategic objective, (4) the available economic power sources, (5) the logistical options. The process of defining and evaluating these factors and incorporating the economic amplifier into an economic system has been popularly called game theory. The design of an economic amplifier begins with a specification of the power level of the output, which can range from personal to national. The second condition is accuracy of response, i.e., how accurately the output action is a function of the input commands. High gain combined with strong feedback helps to deliver the required precision. Most of the error will be in the input data signal. Personal input data tends to be specified, while national input data tends to be statistical. Short List of Inputs Questions to be answered: * what * where * why * when * how * who General sources of information: * telephone taps * analysis of garbage * surveillance * behavior of children in school Standard of living by: * food * shelter * clothing * transportation Social contacts:

PAGE 31 Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars * telephone - itemized record of calls * family - marriage certificates, birth certificates, etc. * friends, associates, etc. * memberships in organizations * political affiliation The Personal Paper Trail Personal buying habits, i.e., personal consumer preferences: * checking accounts * credit-card purchases * "tagged" credit-card purchases - the credit-card purchase of products bearing the U.P.C. (Universal Product Code) Assets: * checking accounts * savings accounts * real estate * business * automobile, etc. * safety deposit at bank * stock market Liabilities: * creditors * enemies (see - legal) * loans Government sources (ploys)*: * Welfare * Social Security * U.S.D.A. surplus food * doles * grants * subsidies * Principle of this ploy -- the citizen will almost always make the collection of information easy if he can operate on the "free sandwich principle" of "eat now, and pay later." Government sources (via intimidation):

PAGE 32 Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars * Internal Revenue Service * OSHA * Census * etc. Other government sources -- surveillance of U.S. mail. Habit Patterns -- Programming Strengths and weaknesses: * activities (sports, hobbies, etc.) * see "legal" (fear, anger, etc. -- crime record) * hospital records (drug sensitivities, reaction to pain, etc.) * psychiatric records (fears, angers, disgusts, adaptability, reactions to stimuli, violence, suggestibility or hypnosis, pain, pleasure, love, and sex) Methods of coping -- of adaptability -- behavior: * consumption of alcohol * consumption of drugs * entertainment * religious factors influencing behavior * other methods of escaping from reality Payment modus operandi (MO) -- pay on time, etc.: * payment of telephone bills * energy purchases * water purchases * repayment of loans * house payments * automobile payments * payments on credit cards Political sensitivity: * beliefs * contacts * position * strengths/weaknesses * projects/activities Legal inputs -- behavioral control (Excuses for investigation, search, arrest, or employment of force to modify behavior)

PAGE 33 Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars * court records * police records -- NCIC * driving record * reports made to police * insurance information * anti-establishment acquaintances National Input Information Business sources (via I.R.S., etc): * prices of commodities * sales * investments in o stocks/inventory o production tools and machinery o buildings and improvements o the stock market Banks and credit bureaus: * credit information * payment information Miscellaneous sources: * polls and surveys * publications * telephone records * energy and utility purchases Short List of Outputs Outputs -- create controlled situations -- manipulation of the economy, hence society -- control by control of compensation and income. Sequence: 1. allocates opportunities 2. destroys opportunities 3. controls the economic environment 4. controls the availability of raw materials 5. controls capital. 6. controls bank rates 7. controls the inflation of the currency 8. controls the possession of property 9. controls industrial capacity

Table of Strategies Do This To Get This Keep the public ignorant Less public organization Maintain access to control point for feedback Required reaction to outputs (prices, sales) Create preoccupation Lower defense Attack the family unit Control of the education of the young Give less cash and more credit and doles More self-indulgence and more data Attack the privacy of the church Destroy faith in this sort of government Social conformity Computer programming simplicity Minimize the tax protest Maximum economic data, minimum enforcement problems

PAGE 35 Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars Stabilize the consent Simplicity coefficients Tighten control of variables Simpler computer input data - greater predictability Establish boundary conditions Problem simplicity/solutions of differential and difference equations Proper timing Less data shift and blurring Maximize control Minimum resistance to control Collapse of currency Destroy the faith of the American people in each other Diversion, the Primary Strategy Experience has prevent that the simplest method of securing a silent weapon and gaining control of the public is to keep the public undisciplined and ignorant of the basic system principles on the one hand, while keeping them confused, disorganized, and distracted with matters of no real importance on the other hand. This is achieved by: * disengaging their minds; sabotaging their mental activities; providing a low-quality program of public education in mathematics, logic, systems design and economics; and discouraging technical creativity. * engaging their emotions, increasing their self-indulgence and their indulgence in emotional and physical activities, by: ο unrelenting emotional affrontations and attacks (mental and emotional rape) by way of constant barrage of sex, violence, and wars in the media - especially the T.V. and the newspapers. ο giving them what they desire - in excess - "junk food for thought" - and depriving them of what they really need. * rewriting history and law and subjecting the public to the deviant creation, thus being able to shift their thinking from personal needs to highly fabricated outside priorities. These preclude their interest in and discovery of the silent weapons of social automation technology.

PAGE 36 Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars The general rule is that there is a profit in confusion; the more confusion, the more profit. Therefore, the best approach is to create problems and then offer solutions. Diversion Summary Media: Keep the adult public attention diverted away from the real social issues, and captivated by matters of no real importance. Schools: Keep the young public ignorant of real mathematics, real economics, real law, and real history. Entertainment: Keep the public entertainment below a sixth-grade level. Work: Keep the public busy, busy, busy, with no time to think; back on the farm with the other animals. Consent, the Primary Victory A silent weapon system operates upon data obtained from a docile public by legal (but not always lawful) force. Much information is made available to silent weapon systems programmers through the Internal Revenue Service. (See Studies in the Structure of the American Economy for an I.R.S. source list.) This information consists of the enforced delivery of well-organized data contained in federal and state tax forms, collected, assembled, and submitted by slave labor provided by taxpayers and employers. Furthermore, the number of such forms submitted to the I.R.S. is a useful indicator of public consent, an important factor in strategic decision making. Other data sources are given in the Short List of Inputs. Consent Coefficients - numerical feedback indicating victory status. Psychological basis: When the government is able to collect tax and seize private property without just compensation, it is an indication that the public is ripe for surrender and is consenting to enslavement and legal encroachment. A good and easily quantified indicator of harvest time is the number of public citizens who pay income tax despite an obvious lack of reciprocal or honest service from the government. Amplification Energy Sources The next step in the process of designing an economic amplifier is discovering the energy sources. The energy sources which support any primitive economic system are, of course, a supply of raw materials, and the consent of the people to labor and consequently

PAGE 37 Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars assume a certain rank, position, level, or class in the social structure, i.e., to provide labor at various levels in the pecking order. Each class, in guaranteeing its own level of income, controls the class immediately below it, hence preserves the class structure. This provides stability and security, but also government from the top. As time goes on and communication and education improve, the lower-class elements of the social labor structure become knowledgeable and envious of the good things that the upper-class members have. They also begin to attain a knowledge of energy systems and the ability to enforce their rise through the class structure. This threatens the sovereignty of the elite. If this rise of the lower classes can be postponed long enough, the elite can achieve energy dominance, and labor by consent no longer will hold a position of an essential energy source. Until such energy dominance is absolutely established, the consent of people to labor and let others handle their affairs must be taken into consideration, since failure to do so could cause the people to interfere in the final transfer of energy sources to the control of the elite. It is essential to recognize that at this time, public consent is still an essential key to the release of energy in the process of economic amplification. Therefore, consent as an energy release mechanism will now be considered. Logistics The successful application of a strategy requires a careful study of inputs, outputs, the strategy connecting the inputs and the outputs, and the available energy sources to fuel the strategy. This study is called logistics. A logistical problem is studied at the elementary level first, and then levels of greater complexity are studied as a synthesis of elementary factors. This means that a given system is analyzed, i.e., broken down into its subsystems, and these in turn are analyzed, until by this process, one arrives at the logistical "atom," the individual. This is where the process of synthesis properly begins, at the time of birth of the individual.

PAGE 38 Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars The Artificial Womb From the time a person leaves its mother's womb, its every effort is directed towards building, maintaining, and withdrawing into artificial wombs, various sorts of substitute protective devices or shells. The objective of these artificial wombs is to provide a stable environment for both stable and unstable activity; to provide a shelter for the evolutionary processes of growth and maturity - i.e., survival; to provide security for freedom and to provide defensive protection for offensive activity. This is equally true of both the general public and the elite. However, there is a definite difference in the way each of these classes go about the solution of problems. The Political Structure of a Nation - Dependency The primary reason why the individual citizens of a country create a political structure is a subconscious wish or desire to perpetuate their own dependency relationship of childhood. Simply put, they want a human god to eliminate all risk from their life, pat them on the head, kiss their bruises, put a chicken on every dinner table, clothe their bodies, tuck them into bed at night, and tell them that everything will be alright when they wake up in the morning. This public demand is incredible, so the human god, the politician, meets incredibility with incredibility by promising the world and delivering nothing. So who is the bigger liar? the public? or the "godfather"? This public behavior is surrender born of fear, laziness, and expediency. It is the basis of the welfare state as a strategic weapon, useful against a disgusting public. Action/Offense Most people want to be able to subdue and/or kill other human beings which disturb their daily lives, but they do not want to have to cope with the moral and religious issues which such an overt act on their part might raise. Therefore, they assign the dirty work to others (including their own children) so as to keep the blood off their hands. They rave about the humane treatment of animals and then sit down to a delicious hamburger from a whitewashed slaughterhouse down the street and out of sight. But even more hypocritical, they pay taxes to finance a professional association of hit men collectively called politicians, and then complain about corruption in government. Responsibility

PAGE 39 Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars Again, most people want to be free to do the things (to explore, etc.) but they are afraid to fail. The fear of failure is manifested in irresponsibility, and especially in delegating those personal responsibilities to others where success is uncertain or carries possible or created liabilities (law), which the person is not prepared to accept. They want authority (root word - "author"), but they will not accept responsibility or liability. So they hire politicians to face reality for them. Summary The people hire the politicians so that the people can: (1) obtain security without managing it. (2) obtain action without thinking about it. (3) inflict theft, injury, and death upon others without having to contemplate either life or death. (4) avoid responsibility for their own intentions. (5) obtain the benefits of reality and science without exerting themselves in the discipline of facing or learning either of these things. They give the politicians the power to create and manage a war machine: (1) provide for the survival of the nation/womb. (2) prevent encroachment of anything upon the nation/womb. (3) destroy the enemy who threatens the nation/womb. (4) destroy those citizens of their own country who do not conform for the sake of stability of the nation/womb. Politicians hold many quasi-military jobs, the lowest being the police which are soldiers, the attorneys and C.P.A.s next who are spies and saboteurs (licensed), and the judges who shout orders and run the closed union military shop for whatever the market will bear. The generals are industrialists. The "presidential" level of commander-in-chief is shared by the international bankers. The people know that they have created this farce and financed it with their own taxes (consent), but they would rather knuckle under than be the hypocrite. Thus, a nation becomes divided into two very distinct parts, a docile sub-nation [great silent majority] and a political sub-nation. The political sub-nation remains attached to the docile sub-nation, tolerates it, and leaches its substance until it grows strong enough to detach itself and then devour its parent. System Analysis

PAGE 40 Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars In order to make meaningful computerized economic decisions about war, the primary economic flywheel, it is necessary to assign concrete logistical values to each element of the war structure - personnel and material alike. This process begins with a clear and candid description of the subsystems of such a structure. The Draft (As military service) Few efforts of human behavior modification are more remarkable or more effective than that of the socio-military institution known as the draft. A primary purpose of a draft or other such institution is to instill, by intimidation, in the young males of a society the uncritical conviction that the government is omnipotent. He is soon taught that a prayer is slow to reverse what a bullet can do in an instant. Thus, a man trained in a religious environment for eighteen years of his life can, by this instrument of the government, be broken down, be purged of his fantasies and delusions in a matter of mere months. Once that conviction is instilled, all else becomes easy to instill. Even more interesting is the process by which a young man's parents, who purportedly love him, can be induced to send him off to war to his death. Although the scope of this work will not allow this matter to be expanded in full detail, nevertheless, a coarse overview will be possible and can serve to reveal those factors which must be included in some numerical form in a computer analysis of social and war systems. We begin with a tentative definition of the draft. The draft (selective service, etc.) is an institution of compulsory collective sacrifice and slavery, devised by the middle-aged and elderly for the purpose of pressing the young into doing the public dirty work. It further serves to make the youth as guilty as the elders, thus making criticism of the elders by the youth less likely (Generational Stabilizer). It is marketed and sold to the public under the label of "patriotic = national" service. Once a candid economic definition of the draft is achieved, that definition is used to outline the boundaries of a structure called a Human Value System, which in turn is translated into the terms of game theory. The value of such a slave laborer is given in a Table of Human Values, a table broken down into categories by intellect, experience, post-service job demand, etc. Some of these categories are ordinary and can be tentatively evaluated in terms of the value of certain jobs for which a known fee exists. Some jobs are harder to value because they are unique to the demands of social subversion, for an extreme example: the value of a mother's instruction to her daughter, causing that daughter to put certain behavioral demands upon a future husband ten or fifteen years

PAGE 41 Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars hence; thus, by suppressing his resistance to a perversion of a government, making it easier for a banking cartel to buy the State of New York in, say, twenty years. Such a problem leans heavily upon the observations and data of wartime espionage and many types of psychological testing. But crude mathematical models (algorithms, etc.) can be devised, if not to predict, at least to predeterminate these events with maximum certainty. What does not exist by natural cooperation is thus enhanced by calculated compulsion. Human beings are machines, levers which may be grasped and turned, and there is little real difference between automating a society and automating a shoe factory. These derived values are variable. (It is necessary to use a current Table of Human Values for computer analysis.) These values are given in true measure rather than U.S. dollars, since the latter is unstable, being presently inflated beyond the production of national goods and services so as to give the economy a false kinetic energy ("paper" inductance). The silver value is stable, it being possible to buy the same amount with a gram of silver today as it could be bought in 1920. Human value measured in silver units changes slightly due to changes in production technology. Enforcement Factor I As in every social system approach, stability is achieved only by understanding and accounting for human nature (action/reaction patterns). A failure to do so can be, and usually is, disastrous. As in other human social schemes, one form or another of intimidation (or incentive) is essential to the success of the draft. Physical principles of action and reaction must be applied to both internal and external subsystems. To secure the draft, individual brainwashing/programming and both the family unit and the peer group must be engaged and brought under control. Factor II - Father The man of the household must be housebroken to ensure that junior will grow up with the right social training and attitudes. The advertising media, etc., are engaged to see to it that father-to-be is pussy-whipped before or by the time he is married. He is taught that he either conforms to the social notch cut out for him or his sex life will be hobbled and his tender companionship will be zero. He is made to see that women demand security more than logical, principled, or honorable behavior.

PAGE 42 Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars By the time his son must go to war, father (with jelly for a backbone) will slam a gun into junior's hand before father will risk the censure of his peers, or make a hypocrite of himself by crossing the investment he has in his own personal opinion or self-esteem. Junior will go to war or father will be embarrassed. So junior will go to war, the true purpose not withstanding. Factor III - Mother The female element of human society is ruled by emotion first and logic second. In the battle between logic and imagination, imagination always wins, fantasy prevails, maternal instinct dominates so that the child comes first and the future comes second. A woman with a newborn baby is too starry-eyed to see a wealthy man's cannon fodder or a cheap source of slave labor. A woman must, however, be conditioned to accept the transition to "reality" when it comes, or sooner. As the transition becomes more difficult to manage, the family unit must be carefully disintegrated, and state-controlled public education and stateoperated child-care centers must be become more common and legally enforced so as to begin the detachment of the child from the mother and father at an earlier age. Inoculation of behavioral drugs [Ritalin] can speed the transition for the child (mandatory). Caution: A woman's impulsive anger can override her fear. An irate woman's power must never be underestimated, and her power over a pussy-whipped husband must likewise never be underestimated. It got women the vote in 1920. Factor IV - Junior The emotional pressure for self-preservation during the time of war and the self-serving attitude of the common herd that have an option to avoid the battlefield - if junior can be persuaded to go - is all of the pressure finally necessary to propel Johnny off to war. Their quiet blackmailings of him are the threats: "No sacrifice, no friends; no glory, no girlfriends." Factor V - Sister And what about junior's sister? She is given all the good things of life by her father, and taught to expect the same from her future husband regardless of the price. Factor VI - Cattle Those who will not use their brains are no better off than those who have no brains, and so this mindless school of jelly-fish, father, mother, son, and daughter, become useful beasts of burden or trainers of the same.

What happens during a government shutdown? 7 things you should know

Jennifer Earl
FOX News

It may be a new year, but Congress is returning to the same old challenge it left behind in 2017 – agreeing on a budget.
And the clock is ticking. A temporary spending bill passed in the House of RepresentativesThursday night, 230-197, but its fate in the Senate remains unclear.
Lawmakers are trying to achieve a compromise on the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, build a wall along the Mexican border and agree to a limit on how much Congress can spend on military and domestic programs in order to prevent a government shutdown by midnight Friday.
"Government Funding Bill past [sic] last night in the House of Representatives. Now Democrats are needed if it is to pass in the Senate - but they want illegal immigration and weak borders," Trump tweeted Friday morning. "Shutdown coming? We need more Republican victories in 2018!"
The measure requires 60 votes in order to break a filibuster. And with the absence of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., due to cancer treatment, Republicans need at least 10 Democrats to get on board.
But Democrats said they wouldn't support the temporary GOP spending bill, which would fund the federal government through Feb. 16, unless it extends protection for young illegal immigrants.
"The overwhelming number in our caucus have said they don't like this deal and they believe if we kick the can down the road this time we'll be back where we started from next time," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said. "So there's very, very strong support not to go along with their deal."
Fox News asked Marc Goldwein, senior policy director of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget – a bipartisan, nonprofit organization that educates the public on fiscal policy issues – to explain a government shutdown, and he answered seven basic questions about the process that Americans should know.

What causes a government shutdown?

shutdown occurs when Congress and the president fail to sign into law 12 appropriations bills (which determine spending for specific government agencies) in order to continue providing funding for government operations.

How can you prevent a government shutdown?

To avoid a shutdown, members of Congress can give themselves an extension, known as a continuing resolution (CR). The temporary funding measure keeps the federal government open and allows lawmakers more time to negotiate the remaining appropriations bills.
“The bar for a CR is pretty low. You’re not agreeing to anything new politically; it’s a no-brainer,” Goldwein told Fox News.
That’s exactly how the government has been operating since Oct. 1.
Funding has been extended twice since then. The House and Senate approved a temporary spending bill on Dec. 21, and Trump signed the measure to keep the government funded through Jan. 19.
With the frequency of CRs, Goldwein says he doesn’t anticipate a government shutdown.
“I expect as long as we can we’ll continue at least kicking the can with a CR,” Goldwein said. He added that he was "not saying it won’t happen, but it’s almost always in everyone’s interest to keep lights on rather than to shut the government down.”

How long does a government shutdown last?

As long as it takes. Congressional leaders from both parties have to reach an agreement to fund the government.
It usually takes a weekend for this to happen.
“We’re talking days or weeks – not months,” Goldwein said.

The federal government would be forced to shut down “nonessential services." Who would be affected?

"Essential staff at top level agencies would continue working, but most federal employees whose jobs aren’t vital would likely be sent home," Goldwein said.
For example, those who work at national parks, monuments and museums would be told to go home. 
"It doesn’t feel awesome to be told you’re not an essential employee. It's a little demoralizing to go home because you’re not important," Goldwein said.
In the 2013 shutdown, roughly 850,000 employees were furloughed per day, according to the Office of Management and Budget.
But not everyone is required to take unpaid leave.
The president, presidential appointees and members of Congress are exempt. The Postal Service, the TSA and Air Traffic Control will also continue business as usual.
Americans will still be able to get their Social Security and Medicare benefits and food stamps. However, people expecting VA benefits, unemployment benefits, farm subsidies and tax refunds may experience delays.

Do federal employees still get paid?

Most likely. The problem: They're not sure when they'll get their money. 
"Everyone loses from the government shutdown. An employee loses their paycheck at the time he or she needs it," Goldwein said. "Ultimately, we’re going to fund it anyway. It’s kind of silly."
Federal employees typically receive back pay shortly upon their return, though, Goldwein says, nothing is certain. Every agency has their own contingency plan in the event of a shutdown.

How many times has the government shut down?

The government has shut down 18 times since 1976, the year Congress introduced the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act, according to the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget’s research. Half of the shutdowns occurred over a weekend.
“Before 1980, the government didn’t really shut down,” Goldwein explained. “A lot of others were over the course of weekends. I call them ‘fake shutdowns.’”
Goldwein says there have really only been three significant government shutdowns in the history of the U.S.
Two occurred during the Clinton administration in the winter of 1995 to 1996. Former President Bill Clinton and the Republican Congress were at odds and shut the government down for a total of 26 days, Goldwein said.
The third occurred during the Obama administration in 2013, when a stalemate between the House and Senate led to a 16-day hiatus.

How much money can the country lose during a shutdown?

The 16-day government shutdown in 2013 cost the country $24 billion of lost economic activity, according to an analysis from ratings agency Standard & Poor's
"The payroll cost of furloughed employee salaries alone – that is, the lost productivity of furloughed workers – was $2.0 billion," the Office of Management and Budget reported in 2013.
Goldwein says shutdowns "waste money" more than they "cost money."
"We’re not going to spend more money. We’re just going to spend it on worse stuff," he explained. "Instead of paying employees to work, we’re paying them not to work."

Here's what happens to Social Security and disability benefits during a government shutdown

  • The federal government entered into a partial shutdown at midnight Saturday.
  • In the event of a shutdown, Social Security and disability checks will still go out.
  • While core functions would not be affected, some Social Security Administration employees would be placed on furlough and minor services would be frozen.

The federal government entered into a partial shutdown at midnight Saturday, which could cause widespread adjustments for a slew of government programs.
All essential services will continue during a shutdown, such as public safety operations and Medicare payments.
Additionally, the shutdown should have little effect on Social Security checks. According to the Social Security Administration's shutdown contingency plan, released in December, most core programs and benefits would continue in the event of a shutdown.

Scenes from the night of the looming government shutdown
"Funding for the programs under Titles II, XVI, and XVIII of the Social Security Act will continue, even in the event of a lapse in appropriations," the plan says.
A shutdown only affects funds annually appropriated by Congress, not funding that is sustained long-term. The Social Security trust fund is paid for through a combination of taxes and long-term investments.

Other core functions like disability claims or appeals over benefits would continue to function.
While checks still go out, some aspects of the Social Security Administration would get hit during a shutdown. Many employees would be placed on furlough, meaning they couldn't work and would not receive pay for the duration of the shutdown. (In past shutdowns, Congress has passed legislation to back-pay employees placed on furlough.)
Additionally, some functions like benefit verification and issuing Social Security cards would cease.
