Happy Chanukah! Light the First Candle Tonight!

Here's a good overview from Chabad (Source):

Chanukah in a Nutshell

With a Medley of Chanukah Links

Chanukah -- the eight-day festival of light that begins on the eve of the 25th of the Jewish month of Kislev -- celebrates the triumph of light over darkness, of purity over adulteration, of spirituality over materiality.

More than twenty-one centuries ago, the Holy Land was ruled by the Seleucids (Syrian-Greeks), who sought to forcefully Hellenize the people of Israel. Against all odds, a small band of faithful Jews defeated one of the mightiest armies on earth, drove the Greeks from the land, reclaimed the Holy Temple in Jerusalem and rededicated it to the service of G-d.

When they sought to light the Temple's menorah (the seven branched candelabrum), they found only a single cruse of olive oil that had escaped contamination by the Greeks; miraculously, the one-day supply burned for eight days, until new oil could be prepared under conditions of ritual purity.

To commemorate and publicize these miracles, the sages instituted the festival of Chanukah. At the heart of the festival is the nightly menorah (candelabrum) lighting: a single flame on the first night, two on the second evening, and so on till the eighth night of Chanukah, when all eight lights are kindled.

On Chanukah we also add the Hallel and Al HaNissim in our daily prayers to offer praise and thanksgiving to G-d for "delivering the strong into the hands of the weak, the many into the hands of the few... the wicked into the hands of the righteous."

Chanukah customs include eating foods fried in oil -- latkes (potato pancakes) and sufganiot (doughnuts); playing with the dreidel (a spinning top on which are inscribed the Hebrew letters nun, gimmel, hei and shin, an acronym for Nes Gadol Hayah Sham, "a great miracle happened there"); and the giving of Chanukah gelt, gifts of money, to children.

Saudi Woman Beheaded for 'Witchcraft'

Saudi Woman Beheaded for 'Witchcraft'

U.S. Pagans (and all other non-Muslims) beware! Islam is making major inroads within the USA!

Source: ABC News

A Saudi woman was beheaded after being convicted of practicing "witchcraft and sorcery," according to the Saudi Interior Ministry, at least the second such execution for sorcery this year.

The woman, Amina bint Abdulhalim Nassar, was executed in the northern Saudi province of al-Jawf on Monday.

A source close to the Saudi religious police told Arab newspaper al Hayat that authorities who searched Nassar's home found a book about witchcraft, 35 veils and glass bottles full of "an unknown liquid used for sorcery" among her possessions. According to reports, authorities said Nassar claimed to be a healer and would sell a veil and three bottles for 1500 riyals, or about $400.

According to the ministry, Nassar's death sentence was upheld by an appeals court and the Saudi Supreme Judicial Council.

Philip Luther, the interim direct of Amnesty International's Middle East and North Africa program, condemned Nassar's killing, calling it "deeply shocking."

"The charges of 'witchcraft and sorcery' are not defined as crimes in Saudi Arabia and to use them to subject someone to the cruel and extreme penalty of execution is truly appalling," Luther said.

Luther said that a charge of sorcery is often used by the Saudi government as a smokescreen under which they punish people for exercising freedom of speech.

Nassar was not the first person to be executed for alleged witchcraft by the Saudi government this year. In September, a Sudanese man was publicly decapitated with a sword in the city of Medina after he was found guilty of the same crime.

According to Amnesty International, at least 79 people have been executed in Saudi Arabia so far in 2011, more than three times as many as in 2010. The human rights group condemned the kingdom's reliance on capital punishment.

"Where the death penalty is used, under international law it should only be applied to the most serious crimes," Luther said.

The Saudi embassy in Washington did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Just for fun: Oy Holy Night!

This is very funny. I hope you enjoy:

What Matters Most: Senate Bill 1867 and the Iranian War

With this video we are changing the way we share our online material. The internet connection here ( seems to get worse every day and so we will no longer be attempting live, streaming broadcasts. Instead we will offer video presentations and post them to our sites so they are available before or at the normal time. Here's the first of these videos:

"What Matters Most" is slated to be online by 5:30 PM Pacific time each Thursday. It is posted to our website:

Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura FEMA CAMP, POLICE STATE

I've been avoiding politics lately, mainly because I am convinced we have already passed the point of no return. This video series is very good however so I figured its worth sharing here. Nothing new in them, but sometimes a reminder is good.

Note that there is a strong pro-Ron Paul sentiment to these videos. As a worshiper of HaShem and a follower of Rebbe Y'shua I strongly reject Ron Paul and his anti-Semitic views. I therefore do not support this aspect of the videos. Otherwise however they are good and accurate according to my research.

Are you ready for what's coming?
Its time to get right with God. Learn the truth at our

Service Schedule Time Changes

Shalom all,

Due to timing considerations expressed by various people Temple Beth HaShem and its various ministries have decided to change our broadcast times.

Shabbat of course always begins approximately 18 minutes before sunset on Fridays local time. During the winter months this often means around 4:30 PM and in the summer sunset is often late into the evening. This makes sharing in services difficult, especially with many of people living on both US coasts and beyond.

These changes are intended to make communications and sharing between us easier. Our websites and blogs will be updated to reflect these changes as soon as possible. Your thoughts on these changes are sincerely invited. They are as follows:

Congregation Beth HaTikvah

Hakham Yochanan ben Zalman of our Congregation Beth HaTikvah in Yardley, PA has announced that their broadcast Shabbat services will now take place at 7 PM EASTERN time each week (they will be lighting their candles as Shabbat begins regardless of broadcast time). Their live broadcasts can be viewed here:
Once our Temple Beth HaShem website is back online these broadcasts will also be available here:

Temple Beth HaShem

Temple Beth HaShem is now in its new home in Fort Bragg, CA. The new temple and gift shop are NOW located at:

Temple Beth HaShem
474 South Franklin
Fort Bragg, CA 95437

The first service in their new location will be held tonight at 7 PM. Rebbe Larry plans to light the Shabbat candles according to the service time (so around 7:10 pm) and thus will be lighting the candles during the broadcast year round. Because the internet is not yet hooked up there Rebbe Larry will not be able to broadcast from there tonight. Since the internet is not yet available at the new shul, Rabbi Yochanan will be presenting the Beth HaShem service live at 7 PM PACIFIC tonight. All future Shabbat services from Temple Beth HaShem will be at 7 PM Pacific.

As soon as we can manage it, the Temple Beth HaShem Shabbat service will be broadcast live from the Fort Bragg shul and offered by Rebbe Larry Levine. These Shabbat services can be watched live here: at UStream or live on our website: (once the website is back online)

Once Rebbe Larry resumes the regular Shabbat service there we at Beth Yachad plan to join his service via the Net rather than offer a separate service from here.

Congregation Beth Yachad

We at Beth Yachad (in Yankee Hill, CA) will be broadcasting the weekly Parsha readings every Saturday at 11 AM Pacific as well as our ongoing prophecy series at 1 PM Pacific.

To watch the Parsha reading:
And our site:

To watch and/or read the Prophecy Study:
or at:

"What Matters Most" with Rabbi Yochanan will continue at 5:30 PM Pacific time. It can be viewed here:

If you have any thoughts or questions about the new schedule please share them with us. We are trying to make things more consistent and more readily available for you.

We're Back Home... Temple Website Hacked... Obladee Oblahdah...

We're back home (Oroville area California) now.

The trip was wonderful in more ways than we can express! We met with several of the yeshiva talmidim (students) and other friends and family members all across the US from Northern Ca to Rochester, NY to Yardley, PA, Pigeon Forge, NC, to Atlanta, GA, down into Ormond Beach and western Florida, to Dothan, Al and Dallas, Tx... . We performed weddings, conversion rites, an ordination, spoke to several people in various settings and more.... We exalted in the splendor of HaShem's creations as we experienced the sheer might of Niagara Falls, the awesome beauty of the Great Smokies, the swamps, rivers and people of the Southeast.... Oy! Such a blessing!

Over the next few days I hope to add the rest of the videos and photos not yet uploaded to our trip page as well as a bit description to put them into context:

We do have one difficulty however. The best I can figure is that a hacker has managed to take over the web site NAME. It currently has an alt page (that is not of our choosing!). I have spoken with the group that now controls our domain name (we don't now how they gained control of it!) and they have assured me this matter will be resolved soon. Please join with us in prayer to this end! and were not hacked and remain secure. All of the files for the temple website are safe and will be restored asap. This was an attack on our domain name not on our web server. Once I regain control of the name I will transfer it to a dependable host (where all the others were... Rebbe had paid for this name well into the future and so when I came on the scene I saw no reason for move it and loose that money... Now I do... not all name servers are honest nor professional. Thanks for your patience on this. We hope to resolve this within a day or two.

NOTE: Rebbe Larry and Hakham Leah are recovering nicely from their auto accident. They plan to sign the papers on the new shul and bookstore (in Fort Bragg, CA) on Wednesday and begin local services shortly thereafter. Hakham Ahuva and I will be remaining in this area (Orville-Chico-Paradise-Yankee Hill-Concow) for now at least. Those wishing to assist Rebbe with the new temple and gift shop may contact him by mail at:

Temple Beth HaShem
32200 space 25 North Harbor Dr.
Fort Bragg, CA. 95437

Please Be in Prayer: Our brother (Rebbe's dear son) Froim may have to go in for surgery soon. As many of you know, Froim is severely disabled. Carefully placed rods in his body enable him to walk and apparently one of these snapped after Froim took a fall recently. Rebbe told me you can feel the broken rod under his skin. Please be in prayer for Froim. He is a man overflowing with love and goodness and we pray for HaShem's mercy to be upon him.

Those who have yet to receive replies from me, thanks for your patience. I hope to be caught up completely within a few days. Feel free to write and confirm that I am aware of your issues etc. In such situations things are sometimes lost.

May HaShem bless you all in the upcoming week!

Shabbat service woes...

The internet was strong until broadcast time, then it suddenly died. We experience this at home as home.
We apologize we were not able to air however with HaShem's blessings we will post both the conversion and Shabbat service, along with the parsha reading, after returning home later this week.

Also, On Monday 11.14 Rebbe Larry will be signing the papers on the new physical location of Temple Beth HaShem in Fort Bragg, CA. The opening service will probably be on December 2. We'll let you know as the time approaches.

Trip Update: HaShem had other plans...

We're still at Florida Caverns State park....

As we were pulling out this morning the truck started coughing and spitting. We didn't what was up... so we returned to the campground, figuring that HaShem had something new for us here (or that a major repair was coming). We asked the rangers here for a mechanic recommend and went where they said: RoadMart. We explained our problem to Adam, one of the mechanics, and soon he returned with the info. A spark plug wire had come undone somehow! That was it. We asked what we owed them and they said Nothing! Ya'll have a great vacation! Baruch HaShem! Other than the Daytona Beach Boardwalk parking garage (see last entry) everyone we've encountered here in Florida have been great. Now sure why HaShem wanted us here for another night... there are many possibilities (maybe we would have been in an accident, maybe gotten stuck if the truck had died, maybe we're supposed to meet someone... who can say. What we can say is Baruch HaShem! AND thank all of you who have been praying on out behalf. We have a couple of weeks left on this trip and you continuing prayers are certainly requested and appreciated.

Unless HaShem has other plans, we expect to leave here again in the morning and drive to Dallas.

Shalom and thanks to everyone.

~ Rabbi Yochanan

We're leaving for Daytona Beach in the Morning....

Shalom friends and fellow talmidim!

Just a quick note to let you all know we will be leaving Jekyll Island for Daytona Beach in the morning. We hope you are all doing well and growing every more into harmony with HaShem!

As always your prayers are requested.
Please pray also for talmidim Yaran and Yiska that HaShem would heal the flu they caught while visiting Stone Mountain.

Peace, Love and Light,

Rat Cheese! Yum Yum!

Where we are currently camped (Stone Mountain, Georgia) has good internet but strict upload and download limitations so we wont be able to post as many of videos as I'd like from here. But this short one from Cherokee I wanted to share with you... This shop sells rat cheese... and its really good! Here's the owner explaining the only down side...

Rat Cheese

The Highland Games are being held here at Stone Mountain this weekend and we're excited!

There's always more to come....Shalom for now!

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

We're at Stone Mountain....



We are in Stone Mountain, GA now and plan to stay: Friday, Oct 11 - 23.

I mentioned the kilt previously... Talmid Yaran has decided to not wear his kilt for the wedding in order to honor his family's preferences. However... Baruch HaShem ... as Hakham Ahuva and I were setting up camp we heard bagpipes! Investigating further we found a nice man from New Jersey playing the pipes beside the lake here. AND he informed us that THIS weekend is the Highland Games! Several clans of kilt-clad Highlanders are expected to be setting up camp here over the next couple of days! Two days of this annual event will be held right here at Stone Mountain! How cool is that? We were going to be camping at Lake Lanier originally but we felt led by HaShem to camp at Stone Mountain instead. I stumbled across a Celtic store in Gatlinburg, Tennessee (seems like an unlikely place!) and bought a kilt for the wedding (where we wont be wearing kilts after all) only to discover we camping at the site of Atlanta's annual Highland Games (where I will be). HaShem leads His people! Never doubt that!

The guy who handles the park's internet is supposed to be in the office tomorrow so I am hoping to talk with him and get our access expanded. If that's not possible, the dual conversions and wedding of Talmidim Yiska and Yaran, our Shabbat service, out special Sukkot broadcast and so on may not be broadcasted live as planned. If this is the case, I'll try and video tape them all and post them as I have access. There should be some very neat videos coming over the next couple of weeks!

I requested prayers for my parents before and I do so again now. Both are in ill health due to various age related issues. They are both doing well for now Baruch HaShem. We plan to visit them tomorrow before Sukkot begins. During this visit to the Atlanta area we'll also be visiting with my brother (a Baptist minster who sometimes posts here: maybe even attending his Sunday service) and my sister (an incredible artist), nieces, nephews and others. We're playing this portion of the trip largely by ear. We're having a great time, meeting lots of interesting people and so on. Including a man who sell rat cheese (video coming as soon as possible)!

Talmidim Yaran and Yiska should be camping with us Friday and Saturday. Yiska should be lighting the Shabbat candles this week.

More to come from Stone Mountain...

Shalom from the Roam'n Rabbi and Hakham Ahuva

Our Trip: Gatlinburg Tn. and Cherokee NC

From our: The Continuing Adventures of the Roam'n Rabbi and Hakham Ahuva!


I've always loved kilts and we found a Celtic shop in Gatlinburg! So I bought two kilts. Talmid Yaran says he plans to wear the kilt at his wedding to Yiska in Stone Mountain October 15th and now I can do the same! My ancestry is largely Cymry (an ethnic group centered in Wales) and kilts were as common among my ancesters as they are among the Scotts. Felly rwy'n falch o wisgo'r chilt!

Today and tomorrow (10.9,10) we plan to relax around the campsite, maybe check out Cherokee a bit more. More pictures and video coming soon! We're having a great time! Shalom Shalom!

Updates/Videos from Pigeon Forge Tn. Prayer Requests and Rosh Hashana

Shalom friends,

We're now in Pigeon Forge Ten. We will be in this area for 2-4 days (not sure yet). We've uploaded new videos from the trip if you are interested. This is from our trip page:


A quick stop at Havre de Grace Maryland: We stopped at the Decoy Museum here. Incredible artistry (just don't think about the poor ducks :-(

To: Pigeon Forge, Tn.


    Welcome to Tennessee! Question: What did Tennessee see? Answer: The same thing Arkansas saw... never mind...
      Welcome to Tennessee
      Welcome to Tennessee
      Welcome to Tennessee
      Welcome to Tennessee
      Welcome to Tennessee

      We arrived October 5. As I knew she would, Hakham Ahuva fell in love with the area immediately. You can go anywhere in the world you want but there is nowhere more beautiful, more comfortable than the Blue Ridge Mountains in the Autumn. We're a tad early for the changing of the leaves but the yearly transformation is already well under way. I just adore this area, I have since I was a kid in North Georgia and we came here for the leaves most autumns. But back then Pigeon Forge wasn't much; Cherokee (NC) and Gatlinburg (Tenn) were the places to be... not anymore! Pulling into Pigeon Forge was like driving into Vegas! Oy this place has grown! We'll be posting lots of videos and photos from here!

      A few miles outside of Gatlinburg we stopped at an old fashion tent revival meeting....

      Nearing Gatlinburg
      Nearing Gatlinburg
      Nearing Gatlinburg
      Nearing Gatlinburg
      Nearing Gatlinburg

Plan change: We're pushing back our arrival in Atlanta a couple of days in order to stay in these mountains longer. We now plan to arrive at Stone Mountain the day before Sukkot (October 11). This changes nothing planned otherwise.

    Yom Kippur: Sunset of October 7 through nightfall of October 8

Please remember to fast on Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) and to pray for Hakham Ahuva and I as out trip continues. Please pray especially for Ahuva's back, that HaShem will heal it or at least give her rest from the pain.

Please pray for Rebbe Larry Levine: His legs are getting bad. He can't really walk now and his left hand is very swollen. He's not sure what's going on and he requests our prayers on his behalf.Please pray also for Hakham Leah as she continues to care for both Rebbe and Froim (their son). May HaShem grant her strength and patience!

Please pray for Hakham Yochanan ben Zalman and his back pains.

Please pray for HaShem's Will as Rebbe Larry continues looking for a new physical location for Temple Beth HaShem in the Fort Bragg, CA area.

Please pray for the all of the talmidim and friends of Temple and Yeshiva Beth HaShem.

Please most of all pray for People Israel and Holy Jerusalem. May HaShem Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

I will be broadcasting "What Matter's Most" today at 5:30 EASTERN time. Our topic, Rosh Hashana:

Shalom my friends.

9-11: The Day the Republic Died and the Globalists Took Complete Control

The truth is out there... but still most people sleep on and believe the lie:

9-11 Was An Inside Job!

Loose Change:

Welcome to the New World Order

Apathy Made it Possible...

Revelation 3:15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

William Butler Yeats (1865-1939)

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: a waste of desert sand;
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.

The darkness drops again but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

God's Glorious Creation on "What Matters Most"

Rabbi Yochanan Levine and Hakham Ahuva will be travelling during late September and most of October. During our travels it wont always be possible to broadcast live. When we can't, we hope to have videos posted for that time. They will be posted on the pages where we present the live broadcasts. Here's the first of these. It was filmed on 9.7.11 at Gansner Bar Campground in Northern California, on the banks of the Feather River:

Hakham Ahuva at Gansner Bar on the Feather River

Hakham Ahuva and I will soon begin our trip across the USA. We'll be meeting several talmidim (students) of our free online school, Yeshiva Beth HaShem. We'll also be visiting with family and friends we haven't seen in years. Needless to say we're looking forward to this trip!

We've just returned home after a couple of days at Gansner Campground on the Feather River in the lower Sierras (about 40 minutes from our home) doing a test run of our trailer etc. We have a great time. Here's Hakham Ahuva at the entry sign:

Good Synopsis on US Debt Crises From Singapore

I haven't posted on this issue in a long time, in part because my view is that EVERYTHING that is going on with this topic is nothing but a smokescreen for what is really happening: i.e. the deliberate and calculated destruction of the USA and the justification for the outward implementation of the Novus Ordo Seclorum ("the New Order of the Ages"): The global dictatorship the coming Rex Mundi (Antichrist) will rule from once all the pieces are in place.
It matters very little if the ruling junta of the former USA calls itself Democrat or Republican. ALL members of the US Congress are traitors. Either directly or by
collusion and silence
. If this government is allowed to remain in power the US is over. Beginning with the next election NO ONE should be reelected and no one with any significant existing ties to any US party should be elected -- Not that that's going to happen of course.

Hence there's not really much point in discussing their various scare tactics and points -- social security checks wont go out (they did), which programs should be cut, how deeply, etc. We are being fed propaganda and fear and most people are gobbling it up.

Having said that.... here is a good piece of propaganda coming out of the globalist media that may help to clarify things a bit (note the dateline is WASHINGTON/SINGAPORE).

Debt deal set to pass but what were the costs?
Source: Reuters

WASHINGTON/SINGAPORE (Reuters) - While the immediate crisis over a threatened default seems to have been averted by the eleventh-hour deal between the White House and Congress, the debt-limit drama has left behind crucial questions about the American political process, the viability of economic policy options and implications for the rest of the world.

The long, tortured debate exposed toxic partisanship and legislative dysfunction in Washington just when judicious efforts at reform were most needed, shaking the faith of international investors and ordinary Americans alike.

The most palpable concern was that gridlock had deprived policymakers of the monetary and fiscal tools they needed to shore up one of the world's bedrock economies, which some feared was already close to stalling.

"Because of the very public and intense squabbles in D.C., already-anemic economic growth will be weaker, the unemployment crisis will worsen, income and wealth inequality will deteriorate further and, ironically, the fiscal dynamics will be more challenging," said Mohamed El-Erian, co-chief investment officer of the international bond fund giant Pacific Investment Management Co., or PIMCO.

China, Washington's largest foreign creditor, has been particularly blunt about other countries' exposure to Washington's partisan warfare. "The ugliest part of the saga is that the well-being of many other countries is also in the impact zone when the donkey and the elephant fight," China's state-run news agency Xinhua wrote in a commentary, referring to the symbols of the Democratic and Republican parties.

Reuters posed several key questions to dozens of investors, policymakers, strategists and economists to gauge the implications of what the debt ceiling fight means for America and the world. While their judgment was almost uniformly dismissive to dire, their collective judgment was not entirely bleak: Republicans and Democrats were at least united on the fact that America must get its fiscal house in order.


Virtually everyone agreed that America's fiscal path is unsustainable: With a national debt of more than $14.3 trillion, the U.S. borrows forty cents of every dollar it spends.

Yet there is intense, fundamental disagreement on how to solve the problem, with Tea Party Republicans as passionately opposed to increasing taxes as progressive Democrats are to making deep cuts in the Social Security pension system and other so-called entitlement programs.

In the marginalization of the political center and dismal prospect for expedient reform, experts saw a threat to America's geopolitical strength.

"It's hard to maintain your influence globally when you can't manage your own country," said Barry Bosworth, a veteran fiscal and monetary policy expert at the Brookings Institution.

The former chair of President Barack Obama's Council of Economic Advisers tacitly agreed. "There is no way we can have persistent deficits of the size the Congressional Budget Office is predicting over the next 25 years and hope to remain the world's preeminent economic superpower," said Christina Romer, who left the CEA in September 2010. "If we don't deal with these deficits there is no way we won't eventually default and become a much weaker country."

Many Republicans and some Democrats fear that defense cuts could have the same effect. At least $350 billion of the initial $917 billion in spending cuts over 10 years are to come from defense and other security programs, which now account for more than half of discretionary spending.

The Pentagon budget for fiscal year 2010 was $680 billion, a reminder of the vast size and reach of America's global military power.

Many, including Pentagon experts, worried that another $500 billion of cuts over the next decade, which could be triggered by a failure of the second phase of the compromise plan, would gravely undercut the United States' international influence and its ability to execute a muscular foreign policy.

Pressure on the dollar as the world's reserve currency would also have geopolitical repercussions.

In the short-term, the United States' and the dollar's world standing is safe, because no other country is able or willing to take its place. Europe's own deep crisis with indebted nations such as Greece, Ireland and Portugal means that the euro is not quite the stable bet it once seemed to be, and China has no clear alternative to buying U.S. bonds to prevent its huge trade surplus from driving up the value of its tightly managed yuan.

But China's economy is rapidly shifting, and its need for reserves of Treasury debt will shrink, according to Stephen Roach, a senior lecturer at Yale University and non-executive chairman of Morgan Stanley.

Beijing's latest five-year economic plan focuses on building up domestic consumption, and China could even post a current account deficit by 2015, Roach said - meaning it would no longer need to buy as much debt. "They are moving away from the dollar whether we like it or not," he said.

If the dollar lost its status as the world's reserve currency it would do more than undercut America's geopolitical position: It would drive up interest rates and borrowing costs for the government, businesses and households.

PIMCO's El-Erian described the debt-limit battle as a "self-inflicted wound that weakens the economy and erodes its standing globally."

John Steele Gordon, a financial historian, downplayed the immediate effect of the debt-ceiling fight. "I don't think it will change the U.S.'s superpower status to any degree. We've had these knock down fights before."

Yet he too saw the government's budget deficit as make-or-break for America's place in the world: "What will affect superpower status is if the U.S. continues to spend more money than it takes in."


There is no way to curb soaring U.S. debt without confronting three of the biggest drivers of American spending: Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare. Deep cuts in any of them represent deal-breakers to large and powerful political forces.

Left unreformed, these three programs - the federal pension system and the programs that support health care for the poor and the elderly - would devour every cent of America's tax revenues by 2047, according to the non-partisan Government Accountability Office.

Yet even with the threat of a catastrophic default as an incentive, and agreement by both parties that deficits must be brought under control, the debt-limit deal that finally emerged still failed to include robust reform of what are described as "entitlements".

The failure is symptomatic: Every important economic lever must work against a big political stick in the gears.

With more government stimulus "off the table," the slow-growing economy cannot generate enough jobs to pull down the unemployment rate. That in turn means Washington has to spend even more than expected on unemployment benefits, food stamps, Medicaid and other programs. Cuts in those programs would then become even more painful.

With tax hikes likewise "off the table," tax revenues will be restrained by weak consumer spending and idled labor.

And so on.

As a result, PIMCO's El-Erian expected the debt-ceiling compromise to do "very little, if at all" to fix America's underlying fiscal crisis. "Remember a sovereign debt burden is defined as total liabilities relative to a country's ability to service them. So it is not just about the debt stock, the maturity profiles and interest rates. It is also critically about the ability to grow. And this crisis has undermined growth, investment and employment."

Romer said "a holding pattern" is the most likely outcome of the debt debate saga. "It deals with the immediate issue of the debt ceiling but doesn't face up to our long-term deficit problem."

Morgan Stanley's Roach put it bluntly: "Make no mistake, we are not getting a major breakthrough in America's fiscal dilemma out of this deal. Talk about kicking the can down the road - this is probably the biggest can that's ever been kicked."

Zombies? In Oroville! Such a Day!

Shabbat Service July 29, 2011

Was Friday July 29th weird where you are?

It sure was here!
We got up a bit early and made our way into the big city... well OK... into Oroville. But hey, when you live on the side of a butte surrounded by pot fields even Oroville (population 14,660)
can seem big...

Anyway....Going down the freeway something felt wrong. When people passed us they looked somehow... not there, like their bodies had forgotten to wake up their souls. We tended to our business, piece of pie, everything was good and successful. Then we decided to stop at Wallmart real quick (I know we're all supposed to be boycotting them... but who really is?). In the parking lot we were nearly hit several times. People were backing out of spaces without looking, cutting across the lanes, going the wrong way on one way lanes...And in the store... nothing was really "wrong" but.... nothing was right either. It just felt creepy.

So we headed up to our second appointment 20 miles north to meet a friend. We were helping him with something but when we got there no one was home, even though we had arranged the meeting just the night before. We go to his front door, knocked... and the door opened! He NEVER leaves his door unlocked let alone open. I looked out toward the street and an elderly woman was raking a leafless lawn and staring at us. It felt like Castle Rock! We went into the house to make sure everything was OK. No one was home and everything seemed normal. We wrote a quick note and left.

Driving away there was that same ominous sense of not-rightness. This wasn't Mr. Rodger's neighborhood ("wont you be my neighbor") this was more like Steven King's neighborhood ("won't you be my ghoul!").

We hadn't found what we wanted at Walmart so we stopped at K-Mart in Paradise (can you believe Sears is now part of KMart! Wouldn't Mr. Roebuck be proud!). Good news, Kmart had what we wanted.

All of a sudden we (Hakham Ahuva and I) were absolutely famished (which was odd, neither of us usually eat much in the mornings but we were both so hungry we would have eaten almost anything --- almost ....).

This Kmart has a Little Caesar's restaurant in one corner (now that I think of it that's interesting too! Ceaser's on a day like this...). Turning right beside a display case of ghastly clothing for the restaurant there was the friend we were supposed meet! But he was in a wheel chair and looking as sickly as I'd ever seen him. After a very brief conversion he suggested the Nathan (kosher) hotdog special , asked us to come back to his house and rolled unceremoniously away. Again, not wrong, just weird.

The woman behind the counter had a blank yet harried expression on her face. Hakham Ahuva asked for the Crazy Bread and the woman stared at her blankly. Ahuva told her again what she'd like and the cashier said, "I wonder what that costs" in a deadpan voice and almost staggered out from behind the counter to look at the display sign. I wont bore you with the details of our fruitless attempt to be fed, but none of the three women working there had any idea how much anything cost, what the difference was between the regular nachos and the supreme nachos
(which I was considering), nor apparently how to cook anything being sold at Little Caesar's. Par the course this day... but odd all the same.

It literally took the woman at the cash register ten minutes, I am not exaggerating, to enter our order into the computer. Meanwhile behind us customers came, paused and left as they saw the absolute incompetence of the staff. It was as if they were ... dare I saw it... zombies. that was the sense. The lights were on, dimly at least, but no one was home.

At one point Ahuva suggested the cook might want to go ahead and get started on her order while the cashier struggled with pushing the number buttons, but the "cook" barked, "Sometimes employees do bad things, things we can't ignore and when that kind of thing happens we in management have to step in and replace them (the emphasis she placed on
"replace them" was another tip of the hat Steven Kings -- of maybe Dean Koons). Management had replaced them which, presumably, was a good thing... except that... the replacements were utterly untrained for their tasks!

I whispered to Ahuva that perhaps we should go elsewhere but she, a kind hearted and patient soul... and a person keenly aware of the absolute weirdness of this day thus far... shook her head. "No, we should give these women a chance." Surely they were doing their best --- insert rude comment here --- so we waited, and again explained that Crazy Bread and Crazy Sauce really do go well together and that since the bread cost $2.00 and the sauce $1.50 perhaps she might consider just adding the two figures together -- since she couldn't find the combo button on her register (she nodded at the suggestion and said under her breath that's $2.00 plus $1.50 = $4.50 (no dear... it equals 3.50)....

So finally the untrained cashier, manager, mathematician asks, "Would you like to sign up for the K-Mart Club and save money on your next purchase?" Her zombied countenance suddenly shifted to that of a Stepford Wife and her former gray countenance became positively aglow! For a few seconds.

Instinctively we both took a step back.

Yet our ever patient Hakham Ahuva paused and replied completely deadpan, "No thank you. But I would like my food if you think that's possible!"

"Huh? Oh sure..." she murmured..

So now the cashier cum coupon seller cum rain (wo)man called out in her best greasy spoon accent: "Crazy Bread, Crazy Sauce and..."

At that the oh so charming cook said, "I don't know how to make Crazy Bread, let me check the book..."

At that I figured we had three viable choices:
1. We could rush off to the Goth section (this Kmart actually had one!), grab an upside-down crucifix and put the zombie out of her (and our) misery
2. We could fall to the floor in hysterics, while asking where the Candid Camera was hidden (you'll understand if you're over 30)
3. We could quietly back away and leave -- hoping that nothing undead emerged by the back room to block our departure.

We left....

We went back to our friend's house, had a nice visit, did what we needed to do, and then drove back to Oroville -- noting every few miles how amazingly badly many of the people (if that's what they were muhahah) were driving (it was like driving in downtown Berkley or DC only in slow motion! ... cars were swerving across the lanes, double and triple parking for no apparent reason, passing when it was not safe to do so...and always VERY painfully slowly....

Needless to say we took extra care, finished our business with about 2 hours to get home for Shabbat. Easy as pie....

But as we drove along highway 70 and back into the buttes we came around a curve and then upon a short line of cars. A policemen, dripping sweat in 109 degree temperature, was going car to car with unwelcome news and turning everyone back. I rolled down my window.

"What's up?"
"Where you heading?"
"Yankee Hill."
"Can't get there from here."
"Nope, been a wreck. Bodies strewed all over the highway up there. Road's closed from Penz to Cherokee."

Checking for alternative routes we realized there was no way we could home in time for the broadcast of our Shabbat service. We'd have to drive all the way around the lake (and its a big lake!). The way things were going we figured Bigfoot or one of his buds would probably step out of the woods on that remote route and pounce on us... not really... but today I would not have been that surprised had that happened!

So... since we had our laptops and MacDonald's offers free WIFI now I figured I could broadcast an abbreviated Shabbat service from there... might be interesting.

As we pulled into the parking lot an SUV was straddling two of concrete parking lot dividers and rocking back and forth. As we -- and an interesting looking homeless guy in his early 70's I'd guess, sitting on the curb sipping a coke and munching fries -- watched the SUV it suddenly roared and jerked with a mighty bolt over the curbing and drove away. Where its rear tire had been a large broken hole in the blacktop remained. We pondered whether the hole could have been caused by the SUV and decided that this day... yeah, probably was...

We also kept tract of the Highway Patrol report on the Net and eventually discovered that one person had died in what was apparently a pretty serious accident... the cop had surely exaggerated about the strewn bodies... but given the day and the zombies that were driving all over town it seem plausible enough that highway 70 might be strewn with corpses and that those might be reanimated... The ride home might be interesting....

So, we hurried back home uneventfully -- none of the Undead barring our way -- and get here with ten minutes to spare. I quickly set up the camera, did my sound check etc. and at 8:01, just a minute late, I clicked the broadcast button to go live...

And... well, its not that nothing happened... something happened. Its not that we didn't have internet access, the connection was weak but strong enough... But when I clicked "Broadcast" the button greyed out but did not give a fail to connect not the connected display, but nothing happened. Same with the record button... But the main screen said "Connected." I looked for the live feed at nada. I restarted, tried a couple of times and decided to just record the audio (which you can hear above).

After the broadcast I came inside to upload the audio to my website and thought, I wonder... so I tried the broadcast live button... and of course it worked fine...

So wonders of wonders... only a couple of minutes uploaded to my website even though the whole service did record. I gave up and went to sleep (I need my beauty sleep!).

Oy!!! Such a day!

This morning I tried again and everything is completely as its supposed to be.

So... here (I hope!) is the audio of last night's Shabbat service from Beth Yachad and Temple Beth HaShem.

No Virginia, there were no real zombies in Oroville... but SOMETHING was really off!

Shabbat Shalom!

Israel Is Preparing For All-Out War! PRAY

From Mike Evans the founder of the Jerusalem Prayer Team

Dear Yochanan,

I was just informed by a high-level source in Jerusalem that the nation of Israel is preparing for war. The belief is that once the UN vote on a unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital city takes place, war will break out. Israel is preparing to be attacked by its neighbors--not only the Palestinian terrorists of Hamas and Fatah, but Hezbollah, armed and funded by Syria and Lebanon, and perhaps even troops from Egypt, Syria, Lebanon and Iran as well.

My source also said that public support expressed by the Arab League for UN recognition of Palestine poses a grave risk because of the leverage of the oil nations over Europe. Europe imports most of its oil, and in addition, the vast oil wealth of the Arab Gulf states is coveted by the European Union to help them survive their current financial crisis. The threat Israel faces is not just a meaningless UN vote; it is a life and death struggle for survival...and Israel's enemies are focused and fully committed to their evil plan.

We have produced a major TV documentary revealing the origins and goals of the plan to divide Jerusalem and curse Israel. There is no time to waste. We must sound the alarm and warn Believers across America of what is going on before it is too late. We need to raise $250,000 immediately for this urgent project. I would like to thank the 575 loving Jerusalem Prayer Team members who have already given $40,000 toward this goal.

Last week a generous Jerusalem Prayer Team member offered to match the first $50,000 we raise for this project. He is so incensed by the actions of the Obama Administration in cursing Israel that he called me and increased his pledge. He will now match every gift up to $125,000 for July. We only have 16 days left to match this gift to bless Israel! Will you join with us in standing for Israel today?


The only book on the subject of the Obama Administration's plan to curse Israel is my book "Cursed" and the only television special with this information is "Save Jerusalem." I am going to step out in faith and air the special everywhere possible in the U.S. this month. We must tell the truth; it will set us free. We must awaken millions of God-fearing Americans to pray and speak up to stop this evil before it is too late.

Your support is urgently needed today! We must not allow the enemies of Israel to win this battle.

When you send your gift of $30 or more, we will send you a copy of "Cursed." This powerful book explains what is behind the plot to divide Jerusalem and curse Israel. If you already have a copy of "Cursed," you can get one to share with your pastor, a Christian friend or a family member. If you are able to send a gift of $80 or more, we will send you an autographed hardback copy. And if you can send $150 or more, we will send you this special Jewish prayer shawl designed especially for members of the Jerusalem Prayer Team in addition to the autographed hardback copy of "Cursed." Remember that your gift today will be doubled to allow us to reach even more people with the trumpet of warning.

Your support of the Jerusalem Prayer Team makes it possible for us to continue to stand for Israel on the world stage, to rally believers across the globe to join in fervent intercession for Israel and to meet the urgent humanitarian needs of the Chosen People. Thank you so much for being part of the team.

Barukh atah Adonai eloheinu melekh ha-olam, ozier Yisrael bigvurah.

Blessed art thou, Lord our God, King of the universe, who girds Israel with might.

Your ambassador to Jerusalem,

Dr. Michael Evans

Ever Again ..... Dry Bones

Ever Again

Passover, Pessach, Haggadah, antisemitism,  : Dry Bones cartoon.
Stand With Israel!
Stand Against God!

You Decide!

The US Government is now siding with the enemies of God's people

US Junta Now Officially recognizes al Ikhwan (Muslim Brotherhood)

Note: The author of this piece is a so-called Moderate, Secular Muslim. Such people are not actually Muslims according to al Qu'ran, al Hadith, al Sunna, nor the vast majority of Muslim imams and pundits today nor in the past. "Islam" means Submission and only those completely "submitted" to the barbaric tenants of Islam are truly Muslim. So called "moderate Muslims" are always either "non-practicing" (in which case they are no longer Muslims) or they are practicing taquiyya (Sharia justifiable deception) intended to lull the populace for the planned takeover. American Muslims fall into both categories.

Also note that much of the author's rejection of al Ikhwan's covert participation in the overthrow of the various Mideastern countries now falling is incorrect and reveals the author's lack of understanding of the current and intended operations of al Ikhwan. Al Ikhwan, including the al Ikhwan covert operative Hussein Obama, are moving fast to take over the world.

Nonetheless... this piece is an eye-opener.

Excerpt: Last week, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that the Obama administration is open to dialogue with the once-banned Muslim Brotherhood.

"Obama Undermining Moderate Muslims"- writes Khaled abu Toameh

Posted: 05 Jul 2011 06:06 PM PDT

by Khaled abu Toameh in Hudson - New York

The United States administration's recent decision to establish contacts with Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood organization is a severe blow to moderate, secular Muslims who are trying to achieve democracy and prosperity in their countries.

The U.S. announcement will only undermine the so-called "Facebook Uprising" that has been sweeping the Arab and Muslim world in the past few months.

This is an uprising spearheaded by secular Muslims who have, until now, succeeded in marginalizing Islamic fundamentalist groups like the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Muslim Brotherhood did not play any role in toppling the regimes in Tunisia and Egypt. Nor does the organization seem to have any significant role in the anti-government uprisings in Yemen, Syria and Libya.

But the Obama administration's decision to engage the Muslim Brotherhood will pump life into the organization and bolster its supporters in the rest of the Arab and Muslim countries.

Moreover, the decision sends a message to radical Muslims that they are marching in the right direction and it is only a matter of time before the rest of the world, including the Leader of the Free World, recognizes them as legitimate players.

Those who want to conduct dialogue with the Muslim Brotherhood are also endorsing the organization's political and religious allies, including Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hizbullah.

These organizations seek to impose strict Islamic teachings and laws on all Muslims and Arabs. Their common goal is to take the Arabs and Muslims several centuries back.

Last week, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that the Obama administration is open to dialogue with the once-banned Muslim Brotherhood.

The Muslim Brotherhood, for its part, has, of course, welcomed that decision, expressing hope that Washington has "revised its previous policies and decided to side with the rights of the people and their demands to stop supporting the corrupt and tyrannical regimes, backing the Zionist occupation and using double standards."

If the Obama administration is going to talk to the Muslim Brotherhood, there is no reason why it should not also launch dialogue with Hamas, the Taliban, Hizbullah and even al-Qaeda. Engaging Muslim extremists, without demanding that they abandon their dangerous policies and violence, is a huge mistake.
