THE REVELATION HAS A PLAN FOR THE DOWNFALL OF THE EVIL EMPIRE

The Revelation has a Plan for the Downfall of the Evil Empire.

In my analysis, the LORD God Creator made no plan to end this World. The Apocalypse, the Doom, the Catastrophe, the Cataclysm, the Calamity, the Disaster, and the End Times mentioned in The New Testament Book of Revelation specifically refers to the Downfall of the Evil Empire code-named as Babylon.

In Earth’s long history, the planet encountered several calamities but none of them have ended the World. Indeed, lifeforms have been lost or became extinct and yet the World reemerged with the introduction of newer forms of Life.

How close has the world come to meet its end? Very close, and more times than you think. We know from geologists, paleontologists, and archaeologists that the planet was slammed by asteroids millions of years ago, and the impact virtually wiped out life on Earth. And this was long before humans were on the scene.

Since the ascent of mankind, humans have staved off possible extinction from massive volcanic eruptions, floods, and ice age glaciers.

More recently, many of the threats to our planet have originated with ourselves. Since the end of World War II, we have lived with the Damocles sword of nuclear annihilation, and we have come close to that fiery demise more than a few times because of miscalculation, computer malfunction, and human error.

We are not free from unwelcome visitors from the cosmos, either. Solar flares, asteroids, and comets have threatened our existence in the past and continue to do so.

With a nod toward our mortality, 24/7 Wall St. has compiled a list of the ways the world could have ended, using resource material such as Live Science, NASA, National Geographic, and Scientific American.

9. Permian era extinction

> When: 250 million years ago

It was called by National Geographic the greatest natural disaster in Earth’s history. About 250 million years ago, at the end of the Permian period, almost all of Earth’s trees were wiped out, as well as 95% of all marine animal species, and more than two-thirds of land animal species.

There are various theories as to why this event happened, including impact from an asteroid, fallout from a titanic volcanic eruption, depletion of oxygen in the oceans, and massive buildup of carbon dioxide.

8. Chicxulub impact

> When: 66 million years ago

The Chicxulub impact is one of the most thoroughly researched, and catastrophic, natural disaster events in Earth’s history. During the Mesozoic era 66 million years ago, an asteroid traveling 40,000 miles an hour struck the Yucatán Peninsula in what is now Mexico with a force estimated to be more than 100 trillion tons of TNT.

It created a crater 115 miles wide and several miles deep. Scientists believe creatures hundreds of miles away were killed by a giant fireball. The force of the blast created a tsunami scientists believe was up to 1,000 feet high.

7. Marine Isotope Stage 6 glacial event

> When: 123,000-195,000 years ago

Marine Isotope Stage 6 is the rather clinical-sounding name for the long glacial event that nearly wiped out Homo sapiens between 195,000 and 123,000 years ago. Scientists believe rapid climate change leading to cold, dry climate conditions made the African homeland of our descendants uninhabitable.

They migrated toward the southern coast of Africa to escape disaster because that region had edible plants and a profusion of shellfish.

6. The eruption of Mount Thera

> When: 1645-1500 BC

The eruption of Mount Thera in Greece about 3,500 years ago was four to five times more powerful than the more widely known Krakatoa event in 1883. Geologists believe the energy emitted from the blast was that of hundreds of atomic bombs exploding in a fraction of a second. The blast could be heard 3,000 miles away.

The Minoan culture that held sway over the Mediterranean region at the time disintegrated. Earth was covered with enough ash to bring on darkness all over the world. Tsunamis raced around the planet and wiped out untold numbers of coastal villages, just as civilization was dawning.

5. The eruption of Mount Tambora

> When: 1815

Another volcanic episode that predates Krakatoa was the eruption of the Indonesian volcano Mount Tambora in 1815. The next year became known as “The Year Without a Summer” following what scientists said was the biggest volcanic eruption in history. About 71,000 people perished.

The resulting “volcanic winter” — when debris spewed into the atmosphere from the volcanic event blocked ultraviolet rays from the sun and lowered Earth’s temperature — killed livestock and crops all around the world.

4. The Carrington Event

> When: 1859

Had electricity been in widespread use in 1859, the solar storm that struck Earth that year would have been a truly catastrophic event. The event was named after British astronomer Richard Carrington, who witnessed it and was the first to understand the connection between the sun’s activity and geomagnetic disturbances on Earth. As it was, the cosmic episode damaged telegraph communications all over the world.

The solar flare was so intense that people in countries where nighttime had fallen thought it was morning.

3. Bonilla Comet

> When: 1883

In the same year Krakatoa erupted in the Pacific, Earth was nearly visited by the Bonilla Comet, and it would have been calamitous if it had. In 1883, portions of the comet, named after astronomer José Bonilla, missed Earth by just 400 miles. Had they not missed Earth, they likely would have caused hundreds of thousands of deaths.

Scientists estimate fragments might have ranged in size from 164 feet to about 3,280 feet across. Each chunk was estimated to be as big as the fragment that hit Tunguska in Russia in 1908.

2. Comet Hyakutake

> When: 1996

The Great Comet of 1996 was massive in size. Discovered by amateur astronomer Yuji Hyakutake just two months earlier in January 1996, it was the closest approach to Earth of any comet in 200 years. At its nearest approach in March 1996, the comet was 9.3 million miles away, the distance between Earth and the planet Neptune. It had been the brightest comet in 20 years. The comet’s tail stretched 311 million miles, one of the longest ever seen.

1. Solar flare

> When: 2012

A latter-day Carrington Event, a massive solar flare, occurred in July 2012. But unlike the Carrington episode of 1859, Earth was not in the line of fire. However, the event was close enough to have struck the Stereo-A spacecraft and touched the portion of Earth’s orbit where the planet had been a week prior.

Proclamation of Independence of Tibet (1913) 
by Thubten Gyatso

February 13, 1913. On This Day Tibet Declared Full Independence.

Proclamation of Independence Issued by the 13th Dalai Lama (1913)

PROCLAMATION ISSUED BY H.H. THE DALAI LAMA XIII, ON THE EIGHTH DAY OF THE FIRST MONTH OF THE WATER-OX YEAR (February 14th, 1913)

Translation of the Tibetan Text

I, the Dalai Lama, most omniscient possessor of the Buddhist faith, whose title was conferred by the Lord Buddha’s command from the glorious land of India, speak to you as follows:

I am speaking to all classes of Tibetan people. Lord Buddha, from the glorious country of India, prophesied that the reincarnations of Avalokitesvara, through successive rulers from the early religious kings to the present day, would look after the welfare of Tibet.

During the time of Genghis Khan and Altan Khan of the Mongols, the Ming dynasty of the Chinese, and the Ch’ing Dynasty of the Manchus, Tibet and China cooperated on the basis of benefactor and priest relationship. A few years ago, the Chinese authorities in Szechuan and Yunnan endeavored to colonize our territory. They brought large numbers of troops into central Tibet on the pretext of policing the trade marts. I, therefore, left Lhasa with my ministers for the Indo-Tibetan border, hoping to clarify to the Manchu emperor by wire that the existing relationship between Tibet and China had been that of patron and priest and had not been based on the subordination of one to the other. There was no other choice for me but to cross the border, because Chinese troops were following with the intention of taking me alive or dead.

On my arrival in India, I dispatched several telegrams to the Emperor; but his reply to my demands was delayed by corrupt officials at Peking. Meanwhile, the Manchu empire collapsed. The Tibetans were encouraged to expel the Chinese from central Tibet. I, too, returned safely to my rightful and sacred country, and I am now in the course of driving out the remnants of Chinese troops from DoKham in Eastern Tibet. Now, the Chinese intention of colonizing Tibet under the patron-priest relationship has faded like a rainbow in the sky. Having once again achieved for ourselves a period of happiness and peace, I have now allotted to all of you the following duties to be carried out without negligence:

1. Peace and happiness in this world can only be maintained by preserving the faith of Buddhism. It is, therefore, essential to preserve all Buddhist institutions in Tibet, such as the Jokhang temple and Ramoche in Lhasa, Samye, and Traduk in southern Tibet, and the three great monasteries, etc.

2. The various Buddhist sects in Tibet should be kept in a distinct and pure form. Buddhism should be taught, learned, and meditated upon properly. Except for special persons, the administrators of monasteries are forbidden to trade, loan money, deal in any kind of livestock, and/or subjugate another’s subjects.

3. The Tibetan government’s civil and military officials, when collecting taxes or dealing with their subject citizens, should carry out their duties with fair and honest judgment so as to benefit the government without hurting the interests of the subject citizens. Some of the central government officials posted at Ngari Korsum in western Tibet, and Do Kham in eastern Tibet, are coercing their subject citizens to purchase commercial goods at high prices and have imposed transportation rights exceeding the limit permitted by the government. Houses, properties and lands belonging to subject citizens have been confiscated on the pretext of minor breaches of the law. Furthermore, the amputation of citizens’ limbs has been carried out as a form of punishment. Henceforth, such severe punishments are forbidden.

4. Tibet is a country with rich natural resources; but it is not scientifically advanced like other lands. We are a small, religious, and independent nation. To keep up with the rest of the world, we must defend our country. In view of past invasions by foreigners, our people may have to face certain difficulties, which they must disregard. To safeguard and maintain the independence of our country, one and all should voluntarily work hard. Our subject citizens residing near the borders should be alert and keep the government informed by special messenger of any suspicious developments. Our subjects must not create major clashes between two nations because of minor incidents.

5. Tibet, although thinly populated, is an extensive country. Some local officials and landholders are jealously obstructing other people from developing vacant lands, even though they are not doing so themselves. People with such intentions are enemies of the State and our progress. From now on, no one is allowed to obstruct anyone else from cultivating whatever vacant lands are available. Land taxes will not be collected until three years have passed; after that the land cultivator will have to pay taxes to the government and to the landlord every year, proportionate to the rent. The land will belong to the cultivator.

Your duties to the government and to the people will have been achieved when you have executed all that I have said here. This letter must be posted and proclaimed in every district of Tibet, and a copy kept in the records of the offices in every district.

From the Potala Palace.

In my analysis, the US President Bill Clinton introduced Slavery into the Land by signing into Law, the PRWORA, the Welfare Reform Act of 1996. President Clinton stooped too low to steal the earnings of hourly wage alien workers who pay taxes while performing labor on the US soil. The Clinton Curse imposes the burden of borrowing money from foreign nations to maintain the day to day operations of the US Government.

WASHINGTON — The national debt has passed a new milestone, topping $22 trillion for the first time.

The Treasury Department’s daily statement showed Tuesday that total outstanding public debt stands at $22.01 trillion. It stood at $19.95 trillion when President Donald Trump took office on Jan. 20, 2017.

The debt figure has been accelerating since the passage of Trump’s $1.5 trillion tax cut in December 2017 and action by Congress last year to increase spending on domestic and military programs.

The national debt is the total of the annual budget deficits. The Congressional Budget Office projects that this year’s deficit will be $897 billion — a 15.1 percent increase over last year’s imbalance of $779 billion. In the coming years, the CBO forecasts that the deficit will keep rising, top $1 trillion annually beginning in 2022 and never drop below $1 trillion through 2029. Much of the increase will come from mounting costs to fund Social Security and Medicare as the vast generation of baby boomers continue to retire.

The Trump administration contends that its tax cuts will eventually pay for themselves by generating faster economic growth. That projection is disputed by many economists.

Despite the rising levels of federal debt, many economists say they think the risks remain slight and point to current interest rates, which remain unusually low by historical standards. Still, some budget experts warn that ever-rising federal debt poses substantial risks for the government because it could make it harder to respond to a financial crisis through tax cuts or spending increases.

Michael Peterson, head of the Peter G. Peterson Foundation, says “our growing national debt matters because it threatens the economic future of every American.”

THOUGHTS ON CELEBRATING THE VALENTINE’S DAY

THOUGHTS ON CELEBRATING THE VALENTINE’S DAY

This Blog Post represents an open, online Petition to the Members of the US Congress to institute a new National Holiday to celebrate the Laws of Love proclaimed by Jesus.

Thoughts on the celebration of Valentine’s Day.

Christians remained the largest religious group in the world in 2015, making up nearly a third (31%) of Earth’s 7.3 billion people, according to a new Pew Research Center demographic analysis. I am asking the global Christian Community to evaluate the need for instituting a new Holiday Tradition to celebrate the Love Commandments proclaimed by Jesus Christ.

WHOLE BODY - WHOLE LOVE - WHOLE HOLIDAY: IN JEWISH TRADITION, THE DAY OF PROCLAMATION OF THE TORAH TO THE JEWS AT MOUNT SINAI IN EGYPT IS CELEBRATED AS SHAVUOT, THE HARVEST HOLIDAY, THE FEAST OF WEEKS, AND THE HOLIDAY OF THE FIRST FRUITS. AMONG CHRISTIANS OF NUMEROUS DENOMINATIONS THERE IS NO COMPARABLE HOLIDAY TRADITION TO CELEBRATE THE PROCLAMATION OF THE TWO GREAT ;LOVE' COMMANDMENTS OF JESUS CHRIST.

AMONG CHRISTIANS OF NUMEROUS DENOMINATIONS THERE IS NO COMPARABLE HOLIDAY TRADITION TO CELEBRATE THE PROCLAMATION OF THE TWO GREAT; LOVE’ COMMANDMENTS OF JESUS CHRIST.

The word ‘LOVE’ does not appear in the TORAH(LAW) given to the Jews at Mount Sinai. I conducted a study of the Holiday Traditions of the US and I am totally surprised to note that there is no traditional celebration of the Proclamation of the two Great “LOVE” Commandments of Jesus Christ. Jewish Holiday Shavuot celebrates the giving of the Torah(The Law or Instruction) to the Jews. The climax of the Torah is the Decalogue, the Code of the Ten Words received by Moses on Mount Sinai. Indeed, Mount Sinai was the scene of an epochal event in the entire human history. While Jesus Christ has retained the essence of The Code of the Ten Words, He has changed the Operating Principle of the Torah, or The Law. Jesus has instructed His believers that the Law would be operated not by the use of force or authority but by simply embracing the equally powerful influence called LOVE. 

WHOLE BODY - WHOLE LOVE - WHOLE HOLIDAY: THIS IS AN OPEN APPEAL TO ALL THE MEMBERS OF THE US CONGRESS TO PASS A DECREE OR LAW TO BEGIN A NEW TRADITION IN THE NATIONAL LIFE THAT CELEBRATES THE CENTRAL ROLE OF LOVE IN WHOLESOME HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS.
Thoughts on celebrating the Valentine’s Day: THIS IS AN OPEN APPEAL TO ALL THE MEMBERS OF THE US CONGRESS TO PASS A DECREE OR LAW TO BEGIN A NEW TRADITION IN THE NATIONAL LIFE THAT CELEBRATES THE CENTRAL ROLE OF LOVE IN DEVELOPING WHOLESOME HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS.

I am posting this article to make an open appeal to all the members of the US Congress to pass a decree or law to commence a new tradition in the national life that celebrates the central role of Love in developing wholesome human relationships. I am using the term ‘Whole Body’ to describe the perfect unity of body, mind, heart, soul, and God that establishes man as a Whole Being. Love is central to man’s relationship to God and man’s relations with other persons. The term love includes the feelings or the emotion of love expressed by a person( “The Subject”) and it involves a personal experience evoked when another person(“The Object”) reflects the feelings of love. Love has to be known as “The Medium” that generates the attachment or devotion to another person; and this attachment implies connection by ties of affection, sexual attraction, devotion, friendship, goodwill, compassion, respect, trust, and commitment. This kind of care and concern for a person or persons in a relationship could be called ‘Whole Love’ if whatever is done for Love occurs beyond good and evil.

WHOLE BODY - WHOLE LOVE - WHOLE HOLIDAY: GERMAN PHILOSOPHER FRIEDRICH WILHELM NIETZSCHE(1844-1900) HAD STATED: "WHAT IS DONE OUT OF LOVE ALWAYS TAKES PLACE BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL." GOD'S LOVE FOR MAN IS UNCONDITIONED.
Thoughts on celebrating the Valentine’s Day: GERMAN PHILOSOPHER FRIEDRICH WILHELM NIETZSCHE(1844-1900) HAD STATED: “WHAT IS DONE OUT OF LOVE ALWAYS TAKES PLACE BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL.” GOD’S LOVE FOR MAN IS UNCONDITIONED AND GOD LOVES MAN WITHOUT DEMANDING THAT MAN MUST ACKNOWLEDGE GOD’S LOVE.

The concept of Holiday begins with the story of creation as revealed in the Book of Genesis and it involves the observance of a ‘Holy Day’. “And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy because on it He rested from all the work of creating that He had done(Genesis, Chapter 2, verse#3).”

WHOLE BODY - WHOLE LOVE - WHOLE HOLIDAY: THE OLD TESTAMENT BOOK OF EXODUS, CHAPTER 20, VERSE#8 IS THE FOURTH COMMANDMENT THAT ASKS, "REMEMBER THE SABBATH DAY BY KEEPING IT HOLY."
Thoughts on celebrating the Valentine’s Day: THE OLD TESTAMENT BOOK OF EXODUS, CHAPTER 20, VERSE#8 IS THE FOURTH COMMANDMENT THAT ASKS, “REMEMBER THE SABBATH DAY BY KEEPING IT HOLY.”

Holiday is a day of freedom from labor sanctioned by God, and it is set aside for leisure and recreation to renew man’s relationship with his Creator. In Civil Society, certain days are set aside by Law or Custom and Traditions for the suspension of official business activities and very often in commemoration of some important events in national life. I am using the term ‘Whole Holiday’ to recognize a specific day that is set aside by Human Law in recognition of the Divine Law that is conducive to the development of harmonious, or wholesome interpersonal relationships that are essential to promote the health, and well-being of all people. In the US, there are several holidays that are legal and none of them directly address the central issue of developing Love relationships.

THOUGHTS ON CELEBRATING THE VALENTINE’S DAY.

Saint Valentine’s Day is celebrated on February 14 and it has become a popular tradition to choose or to greet a sweetheart. But this concept of romantic interest in a person is more related to a sexual attraction and other attributes of ‘Whole Love’ such as trust, respect, and commitment may not be always present. Secondly, the tradition of Valentine’s Day is not related to the concept of God is Love and God Loves man.

WHOLE BODY - WHOLE LOVE - WHOLE HOLIDAY: CHRISTMAS DAY, A HOLIDAY ON DECEMBER 25, CELEBRATES THE BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST. THE FOCUS UPON GOD'S UNCONDITIONED LOVE IS NOT ALWAYS EXPRESSED IN THIS TRADITIONAL HOLIDAY CELEBRATION.
Thoughts on celebrating the Valentine’s Day: CHRISTMAS DAY, A HOLIDAY ON DECEMBER 25, CELEBRATES THE BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST. THE FOCUS UPON GOD’S UNCONDITIONED LOVE IS NOT ALWAYS EXPRESSED IN THIS TRADITIONAL HOLIDAY CELEBRATION.

Christmas Day Holiday celebration should reflect the very essence of Christianity.  The Gospel according to Apostle John, Chapter 3, verse# 16 declares: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” The Christmas tradition is about the Joy that is associated with the birth of baby Jesus and the exchange of gifts to express the sense of happiness. Christmas holiday is not in remembrance of God’s Law. Jesus Christ has established ‘LOVE’ as God’s Greatest Commandment. The Gospel according to Apostle Matthew(Chapter 22, verses#37-40), and The Gospel according to Apostle Mark(Chapter 12, verses# 28-31) describe the Commandments of Love: “Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. This is the first great commandment. The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two Commandments.” The Gospel according to Apostle John, Chapter 13, verse# 34 describes the need for neighborly relations among people based upon Love: “A new command I give you: Love one another, as I have loved you, so you must love one another.”

WHOLE LOVE – WHOLE TRADITION – WHOLE LAW – WHOLE HOLIDAY:

In the United States, we have no Law, or a cultural tradition to commemorate the event in which Jesus Christ has issued the two great commandments asking people to observe the Law of ‘Whole Love’ which demands 1. The Love of God with Whole Body, Heart, Mind, and Soul, and 2. The Love of Neighbor as a requirement of God’s Law for man. After my ‘Whole Discovery’, the discovery of the experience of ‘Whole Love’ at Whole Foods Market, Ann Arbor, Michigan on Wednesday, July 30, 2014, I have decided to promote the establishment of a ‘Whole Tradition’ to follow the Spirit of the ‘Whole Law’ to truly observe the Commandment of ‘Whole Love’. To commemorate my ‘Whole Discovery’, I am writing this appeal to ask all the members of the US Congress to approve a new Law to observe the last Wednesday of July as the ‘Whole Love Holiday’. The choice of Wednesday is very appropriate as most other legal holidays are observed on Mondays as a matter of convenience and not for the purposes of obedience to a Divine Law which should be the source and inspiration for the Human Law. The concept of ‘Whole Love’ represents the ‘Whole Law’ that is explicitly pronounced by Jesus Christ as the only Commandment that man must follow and observe in his lifetime. To acknowledge the ‘Whole Law’, to celebrate its pronouncement, we need a new ‘Whole Tradition’ which is reflected by instituting a new ‘Whole Holiday’.

WHOLE LOVE – WHOLE HOLIDAY – CHRISTMAS IN JULY:

WHOLE BODY - WHOLE LOVE - WHOLE HOLIDAY: I AM ASKING ALL THE MEMBERS OF THE US CONGRESS TO INSTITUTE A NEW LAW IN RECOGNITION OF THE WHOLE LAW OF WHOLE LOVE. THE LAST WEDNESDAY OF JULY SHOULD BE A LEGAL HOLIDAY TO CELEBRATE THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS IN JULY.
Thoughts on celebrating Valentine’s Day: I AM ASKING ALL THE MEMBERS OF THE US CONGRESS TO INSTITUTE A NEW LAW IN RECOGNITION OF THE WHOLE LAW OF WHOLE LOVE. THE LAST WEDNESDAY OF JULY SHOULD BE A LEGAL HOLIDAY TO CELEBRATE THE TRUE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS IN JULY.

I would describe this July ‘Whole Love Holiday’ as ‘BETTER THAN VALENTINE’S DAY’ for celebrating the traditions of Love.

WHOLE BODY - WHOLE LOVE - WHOLE HOLIDAY: THE NEW 'WHOLE TRADITION' TO COMMEMORATE THE PRONOUNCEMENT OF THE 'WHOLE LAW' WILL INSTITUTE A NEW, 'WHOLE HOLIDAY' ON THE LAST WEDNESDAY OF JULY. THIS 'WHOLE HOLIDAY' WILL BE CALLED 'BETTER THAN VALENTINE'S DAY. THE ROSES ARE FOR GOD AND THE CHOCOLATES ARE FOR THE NEIGHBOR.

WHOLE BODY - WHOLE LOVE - WHOLE HOLIDAY: THE AMAZING 'WHOLE COOKIE' SOLD AT WHOLE FOODS. THE 365 EVERYDAY VALUE MISMATCHED SANDWICH CREMES WILL BE CALLED WHOLE COOKIES IF THE US CONGRESS APPROVES A NEW LAW TO CELEBRATE WHOLE LOVE ON THE LAST WEDNESDAY OF JULY.
Thoughts on celebrating Valentine’s Day: THE AMAZING ‘WHOLE COOKIE’ SOLD AT WHOLE FOODS. THE 365 EVERYDAY VALUE MISMATCHED SANDWICH CREMES WILL BE CALLED WHOLE COOKIES IF THE US CONGRESS APPROVES A NEW LAW TO CELEBRATE WHOLE LOVE ON THE LAST WEDNESDAY OF JULY.

The term ‘Cookie’ is used to describe a small sweet cake usually flat and often crisp. The word ‘Cookie’ may also be used to describe an attractive, young woman. As Sigmund Freud had explained, all kinds of love have an element of sexual attraction and it is inherently natural as such attraction is the fundamental nature of all living things that are governed by the Natural Law of Generation and Propagation. So, I love my ‘Cookies’ even if it may imply the Love of more than one person. The ‘Whole Law’ mandates the Love of more than one person. If the US Congress approves new legislation to institute a Holiday on the last Wednesday of July to celebrate Love, I would expect that Whole Foods would rename its 365 Everyday Value Mismatched Sandwich Cremes as “WHOLE COOKIES.” The Vanilla Cookie symbolizes God’s Love for man and the Chocolate Cookie symbolizes man’s love of his neighbor.

WASHINGTON, Feb 7 (Reuters) – John Dingell, a gruff Michigan Democrat who entered the U.S. House of Representatives in 1955 to finish his late father’s term and became a legislative heavyweight and longest-serving member of Congress, died on Thursday. He was 92.

“Today the great State of Michigan said farewell to one of our greatest leaders. John Dingell will forever be remembered as ‘The Dean’ of Congress not simply for the length of his service, but for his unparalleled record of legislative accomplishments,” Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer wrote in a post on Twitter.

Dingell served 59 years in the House before retiring in 2015 because, as he said to a Michigan business group at the time, he could no longer “live up to my own personal standard” for serving in Congress.

On Wednesday, Dingell’s wife, Debbie Dingell, who was elected to succeed him, said on Twitter that she skipped Tuesday’s State of the Union address in Washington to be with him as his health declined.

The Detroit News reported he was in hospice care after being diagnosed with prostate cancer, which he had decided not to treat.

On Wednesday, Dingell dictated a tweet for his wife to write: “I want to thank you all for your incredibly kind words and prayers. You’re not done with me just yet.”

Democratic Senator Debbie Stabenow wrote in a post on Twitter: “We have been incredibly lucky to have you and will miss you dearly.”

The Special Frontier Force which represents The Tibetan Resistance Movement to contain, to resist, to engage, to counteract, to “Roll-Back” the Spread of Communism, asks Americans to define their Mission on February 06, 2019 to restore Tibetan Equilibrium using the guidance provided by ‘The Reagan Doctrine of 1985’. Using President Reagan’s words, I ask Americans to do what is “Morally Right.”

FEBRUARY 06, 1985. THE REAGAN DOCTRINE

Tibet Equilibrium 2019. Defining America’s Mission on the Sixth Day of February.

The “Reagan Doctrine” was used to characterize  the Reagan administration’s (1981-1988) policy of supporting anti-Communist insurgents wherever they might be. In his 1985 State of the Union address, President Ronald Reagan called upon Congress and the American people to stand up to the Soviet Union, what he had previously called the “Evil Empire”:

Reagan began his foreign policy comments with the dramatic pronouncement that, “Freedom is not the sole prerogative of a chosen few; it is the universal right of all God’s children.” America’s “mission” was to “nourish and defend freedom and democracy.” More specifically, Reagan declared that, “We must stand by our democratic allies. And we must not break faith with those who are risking their lives—on every continent, from Afghanistan to Nicaragua—to defy Soviet-supported aggression and secure rights which have been ours from birth.” He concluded, “Support for freedom fighters is self-defense.”

“We must stand by all our democratic allies. And we must not break faith with those who are risking their lives—on every continent, from Afghanistan to Nicaragua—to defy Soviet-supported aggression and secure rights which have been ours from birth.”

Breaking with the doctrine of “Containment,” established during the Truman administration—President Ronald Reagan’s foreign policy was based on John Foster Dulles’ “Roll-Back” strategy from the 1950s in which the United States would actively push back the influence of the Soviet Union. Reagan’s policy differed, however, in the sense that he relied primarily on the overt support of those fighting Soviet dominance. This strategy was perhaps best encapsulated in NSC National Security Decision Directive 75. This 1983 directive stated that a central priority of the U.S. in its policy toward the Soviet Union would be “to contain and over time reverse Soviet expansionism,” particularly in the developing world. As the directive noted:

“The U.S. must rebuild the credibility of its commitment to resist Soviet encroachment on U.S. interests and those of its Allies and friends, and to support effectively those Third World states that are willing to resist Soviet pressures or oppose Soviet initiatives hostile to the United States, or are special targets of Soviet policy.”

To that end, the Reagan administration focused much of its energy on supporting proxy armies to curtail Soviet influence. Among the more prominent examples of the Reagan Doctrine’s application, in Nicaragua, the United States sponsored the contra movement in an effort to force the leftist Sandinista government from power. And in Afghanistan, the United States provided material support to Afghan rebels—known as the mujahadeen—helping them end Soviet occupation of their country.

TIBET — Two days ahead of the Year of the Earth Pig, Tibetans have geared up for the final preparations of the Tibetan New Year, also known as the Losar celebration.

The alleys around Tsalgongthang Monastery in the regional capital of Lhasa were more crowded than usual on Sunday, and business was booming as people were busy preparing for not one but two New Year’s celebrations on the same day. This year, Losar and Spring Festival both fall on Tuesday.

Losar dates to about 100 BC, the time of the ninth king of Tibet, Pude Gungyal, and the celebration runs as long as 15 days.

The city’s atmosphere was resplendent with holiday spirit. Red lanterns hung from trees and decorations graced the walls of family homes.

A grand religious ritual took place at Lhasa’s Sera Monastery on Friday. Thousands of pilgrims paid visits and prayed for a peaceful and prosperous year.

Tsetan Drolkar, 40, a restaurant owner in the city, said her business boomed last month, and she was excited about taking part in family reunions during the holiday period.

“I do my business in the morning and New Year’s shopping in the afternoon. I have finished frying khasai (wheat strips fried in yak butter), and I am almost ready for Losar,” she said.

Tsetan Drolkar said she would prepare guthuk noodles, an important part of a ritual during Losar.

Guthuk contains yak meat, cheese, cabbage, wheat, barley, beans, water and salt.

Chili pepper is sometimes wrapped inside noodles and boiled together with the soup.

“Anything you find in your guthuk has a symbolic meaning. For example, chili peppers represent loquaciousness, and salt symbolizes laziness,” she said.

“I expect to see beans and onions in my bowl tonight,” she added, saying the two represent harmony and profitable business, respectively.

Tenzin Nyandrak, the eldest son of Tsetan Drolkar, said the holiday meant playing games and spending time with his grandparents.

“I am looking forward to visiting monasteries in the countryside together with my parents during Losar,” said the 13-year-old.

“We will have competitions with other kids, and I want to win as the best archer,” said Tenzin Nyandrak, adding that he also wants to set off fireworks.

Losar usually lasts for around two weeks, and the family plans to visit their relatives and have many gatherings during the period.

As a New Year’s wish, Tsetan Drolkar said she hopes everyone will be happy, healthy and wealthy.

“As for myself, I hope to have better business in the new year, and see the whole world enjoy peace and prosperity.”

China cracks down on Tibet CPC officials over links with Dalai Lama

The Cold War in Asia. The Spread of Communism to Tibet.

Beijing, February 2

China’s ruling Communist Party is cracking down on its officials who are taking part in religious activities violating party’s ideology of adhering to atheism and secretly maintaining contacts with Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama, who has been branded as “separatist” by Beijing.

A video produced by the Tibetan provincial government has revealed cases in the region where local Communist Party of China (CPC) members violated the CPC regulations on religion, anti-separatism and anti-corruption, state-run Global Times reported on Saturday.

So far, three officials have been expelled from the party and 10 others received a warning, the report said.

The Tibetan authority attaches great importance to the party discipline consistent with a nationwide campaign to strengthen the party management. It regulated 46 violations by local CPC members, including religious beliefs, according to the video produced by the publicity department of the regional commission for discipline inspection of Tibet and Tibet television.

The video, part of a four-episode series featuring the region’s efforts on anti-corruption and regulating the party members, was aired from January 28 to 31 on Tibet television, the report said.

Buddhism is a widely popular religion in Tibet, which is governed by the CPC ever since China took control of it in 1950. Despite his exile in India since 1959, the Dalai Lama remains the most revered religious figure in the Himalayan region.

The CPC remains an atheist organization. Thus, CPC members are banned from religious beliefs, because they can only believe in Marxism and believing in other religions means betrayal of their chosen belief and it will shake their belief in Marxism and separate them from the party, Xiong Kunxin, an ethnic studies professor at Tibet University in Lhasa, told the Global Times. — PTI
