A woman said that she stabbed her boyfriend in self defense to protect her unborn child. The man is an accused killer. Her boyfriend wanted her to kill her unborn baby in abortion. Melinda Morin refuse. An argument came out and a deadly fight occurred. The woman is accused of the fatal stabbing. She testified on last Thursday. The on again and off again boyfriend is named Barry Neil Godwin. She or Melinda said that he had packed her bags to leave on the morning of November 10, 2009. Then, he picked her up downtown when she called him. They went back to his northeast home. There was a heated argument and she told him that she planned to keep the child once it was born.
“I told him I didn’t want to go for an abortion. I’d keep the baby and I wouldn’t bother him. I’d take care of it myself,” Morin, 29, told her lawyer Mitch Stephensen during her second-degree murder trial. “But he didn’t want to know there was a kid out there that was his. He was upset and he wanted me to have an abortion. No way around it. So I was trying to leave.” The child was born in July 1. She said that the morning Goldwin kicked her in the stomach, grabbed her and put her in a choke hold. She threw a knife at her at the bottom of the stairs, attacked her, and grabbed her by the hair. He tried to pull her upstairs. She said that he then kicked the door closed, so she couldn't leave. She was scared of him attack her. He was angry. She testified that she picked up the knife form the floor and stabbed him and he collapsed. She saw the knife in his hand. Morin said that she was acting in self defense. So, the abortion issue is serious and cowardly people trying to kill a mother (with an unborn child) is wrong.
People want to see why poverty continues in America. This poverty cancer is causing states, cities, and rural areas to go broke and bankrupt. Camden, New Jersey is suffering as the Nation magazine reports in it November 22nd issue. Americans mostly aren't lazy. It's just that the system is corrupt and it doesn't work anymore. There has been betrayal. People have been betrayed by employers and the federal government has betrayed many people (including the costly criminal wars). Neofeudalism is a threat where cutting social services still don't work to solve problems. States are being more bankrupt and there is a permanent underclass of unemployed human beings. In an article titled “City of Ruins,” Hedges reports that 70 percent of Camden's high school students drop out, that the city's unemployment rate is probably 30 to 40 percent, and that its dangerous streets “are filled with the unemployed." Prostitution, crime (with gangs like the Bloods, the Latin Kings, Lose Nietos, and MS-13), the drug trade (some come into the place to get drugs from the suburbs), etc. thrive in poverty stricken areas like Camden. This causes the crime rate to increase as well. Camden has in 2009 had the highest crime rate in the nation with 2,333 violent crimes per 1,000 population vs. a national average of just 455, Wikipedia reported. About 52 percent of its residents live in poverty. There are places nationwide with more than 30% of its citizens in poverty like Bloomington, Indiana, Flint, Michigan, Kalamazzo, Michigan, Gary, Indiana, Muncie Indiane, Edinburg, Texas, and other places. Large citizens have a high poverty rate like Detroit, Buffalo, Newark, Miami, St. Louis, etc. Structural unemployment is one reason for the high poverty rates. It's not a secret that black people and Hispanics suffer disproportionately in poverty. Manufacturing and construction are hit bad in this recession. For instance, the unemployment rate for blacks is expected to reach 27 percent in Michigan, which has been shedding auto industry jobs. Other states with jobless rates above 20 percent for blacks are Alabama, Illinois, Ohio and South Carolina. Some people want a New Deal like Work Project Administration since it caused 8 million new jobs to be formed. This doesn't occur today, because many Republicans won't allow it to occur. Even the Black Caucus wants the government to create training programs and jobs in low income communities with the highest unemployment rates. That's commonsense since you target the extreme poor first to spir economic growth. "It's like triage in an emergency room -- you take care of people who need the most help first and you help the others later," said Kai Filion, research analyst at the Economic Policy Institute. It should be remembered that the majority of America's unemployed are Caucasian and that the real unemployment figure according to some authorities is 20 percent, not the 10 percent reported by Washington. Large cities have high crime rates since of the poverty rate. Thomas More even mentioned this cycle in the terms of people being corrupted from youth having a higher risk of committing crimes. Some cities refuse to give people pensions and others come into the military because of desperation of income. Reduced employment causes less purchasing power, and a less tax take for local government. California has a $20 billion budget gap according to the Christian Science Monitor. It has already resorted to “mandatory furloughs for all state workers, teacher layoffs, (and reduced) aid to the university system 20 percent, (and made) massive cuts to education, corrections, and social services.” This grim picture is mirrored everywhere. The rising unemployment in New York City's workforce, for example, has worsened its budget crisis, Financial Times reported Nov. 22nd. Corporations from the U.S. still are getting cheap labor in race to the bottom tactics. CNN reported hundreds of U.S. corporations either sending American jobs overseas o using cheap labor instead of American workers. These companies are Owens Corning, Pepsi CO, Pfizer, Pratt and Whitney, Procter and Gamble, etc. There is no Domestic Marshall plan here to help the community (that even the Urban League's Whitney Young called for in 1962). Even the Papist Sir Thomas More was right to mention that: “To start with, most kings are more interested in the science of war...than in useful peacetime techniques. They're far more anxious, by hook or by crook, to acquire new kingdoms than to govern their existing ones properly.” Kings want to use war instead of social betterment of people. Put another way, the Pentagon is spending more money for war (52 cents of every tax dollar) than all 50 states combined spend for all purposes to improve the lot of 300 million Americans. In their book, “The Three Trillion Dollar War”(W.W. Norton), Joseph Stiglitz and Linda Bilmes write, “A $3 trillion figure for the total cost strikes us as judicious, and probably errs on the low side. Needless to say, this number represents the cost only to the United States. It does not reflect the enormous cost to the rest of the world, or to Iraq.” (Stiglitz is former chief economist at the World Bank and a Nobel Prize laureate and Bilmes is a public policy authority at Harvard). This reality continues in the war on terror in Iraq and Afghanistan. When you bomb places, a home collapses in America with neglect. It's easy to see that the military industrial complex is causing poverty in bad terms in America for stripping resources from the people and send the cash into corporations.
Now, it's time to expose Rushdoony some more and his ideological sons. There is that link between some Minutemen, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, Malthusian population control advocates, and Dominionist groups like the Council for National Policy or the CNP. So, this real fifth column wants to radicalize activist and demonize real Patriots trying to make reforms ion society. Balkanization of countries by the elite existed for thousands of years. That is why it isn't surprising that such groups want to balkanize America, so the constitutional government is gone, and the new world order is really formed. These neo-Confederate reactionaries act as libertarians, but they advocate totalitarianism in a slick package. Rousas J. Rushdoony and Gary North promote anti-religious liberty doctrine that exploits spirituality at the expense of human freedom. Thomas E. Wood Jr. believes in the league of the South. It's a group that promote Anglo-Celtic supremacy and promotes the Confederacy. Gary North has been working with the CNP in the 1980's and the 1990's. Other CNP people are Marvin Olasky, Howard Ahmanson Jr., and the late Dr. D. James Kennedy. North promotes the heresy of Christian Reconstrcutionism that created Dominionism (CNP member Rushdoony loves Dominionism). Rushdoony advocated segregation, opposed interracial marriage, and promote Confederate nationalism. Neo-Confederates are in the von Mises Institute. People know that the Confederacy wanted to preserved slavery. They had ties to the Knights of the Golden Circle. Suspected KGC member John Wilkes Booth assassinated Abraham Lincoln in a conspiracy. Anton Chaitkin wrote about Pike working with Mazzini. Anton wrote that Pike was a racist, tried to get rid of free black people from Arkansas and supported the Know Nothings (an anti-legal immigration policy). Pike was a Confederate Army General. Ironically, the Scottish Rite Journal in 1950 called the Anglo-Saxons as the race to promote the novus Ordo Seclorum or the new age. That is why black folks couldn't join the Scottish Rite Freemasons in high number until the late 1980's and early 1990's. The neo-Confederates worked with the robber barons to oppress minorities and the poor of many colors. That's their job. Their job is to hate people and oppress people of every background. So, we should oppose this evil.
The transhumanist agenda is still here. The New York Times ran a feature article on July 20, 2010. This article talked about the Lifeboat Foundation. This concept behind the group is simple yet disturbing. The article talks about protecting people from new threats (like artificial intelligence running amok to self replicating nanobots). The article talked about high tech shields to protect humans in the 21st century. The issue deals with the areas of neuropharmaceuticals, neurodevices, and neurodiagnostics. The Lifeboat Foundation have people that overreact. Some of their honors include Google, Hewlett-Packard, Sun Microsystems, and other list of industry (and technology executives including names on their advisory boards like Nobel laureate and Princeton University Professor Eric Maskin). Transhumanism believes in the posthuman agenda. There are genetic modification of living organisms. Some wants shields to protect the Earth species form designer viruses, nanobugs, prison contamination, and other dangers. There are shortcomings to biotechnology corporations. Some people need to realize that man i more than the sum of biological functions or biochemical reactions. Man has a spirit and soul that are vulnerable to spiritual plus environmental dangers. Too much human machine integration can cause the borgification of man that can ruin family links, and it can distort cognitive pathways. Dr. Mark Gasson, from the School of Systems Engineering at the University of Reading in the United Kingdom, intentionally contaminated an implanted microchip in his hand that allows him biometric entry through security doors and that also communicates with his cell phone and other external devices. In the experiment, Dr. Gasson (who agrees that the next step in human evolution is the transhuman vision of altered human biology integrated with machines) was able to show how the computer virus he infected himself with spread to external computer systems in communication with his microchip. He told BBC News, “With the benefits of this type of technology come risks. We [will] improve ourselves...but much like the improvements with other technologies, mobile phones for example, they become vulnerable to risks, such as security problems and computer viruses.” So, these issues of the post human should be addressed.
