FBI Shuts Down Child Porn Social Networking Site

Click to read full story from CNN

Authorities have shut down a global social networking-like site where members traded child porn, talked about their fantasies and traded tips about not getting caught, according to the Department of Justice.

The investigation into the site is ongoing, the agency said, and it is working with police officials from several countries to try to find members who haven't been identified. More than 50 people have been arrested around the world and 35 convicted since the 2008 start of the investigation, dubbed Operation Nest Egg, the Department of Justice said.

The members "participated in a sophisticated, password-protected Internet bulletin board group, which existed to allow members to meet like-minded individuals with a sexualized interest in children, to discuss that interest and to trade images of child pornography," according to court documents.

At one point, the site had more than 1,000 active members.

"The individuals who participated in this Internet-based bulletin board exploited the most innocent and vulnerable in our society," Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer said.

The Department of Justice said the operation began by targeting 26 defendants who were charged in the Southern District of Indiana and then expanded to about 500 other individuals around the globe who were a part of the online group that was "dedicated to trading images of child pornography."

Most of the people charged are accused of conspiring to advertise and distribute child pornography, along with substantive counts of advertising and distributing child pornography.

Officials said the inquiry led them to further investigate some people for sexual abuse of children.

High School Valedictorian Sues School To Stop Graduation Prayer

Click to read full original article from The Indy

GREENWOOD, Ind. -- A student who sued his school to stop a prayer at graduation spoke out for the first time about his intentions and a backlash at school.

In September, Greenwood High School gave its senior class a ballot, asking them if they wanted to include prayer at graduation. Most students were in favor, but not all.

"I saw that as the school asking the students whether or not we wanted to violate the U.S. Constitution," said Eric Workman, the school's valedictorian. "I'm a Christian, but I also believe the law is the law."

With the backing of the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana, Workman sued the school and won.After the courtroom battle ended, Workman had another to fight at the school with angry students."Dealing with my peers, it was difficult, but it showed their true character," Workman said.

Workman has heard rumors that there will be protests when he addresses his peers at commencement on Friday."Someone is going to sneeze, and everyone says, 'God bless you,' in order to get back at Eric Workman," said Nick Rice, a junior at the school."If something does happen, I wouldn't be the one to stop it," said senior Craig Egenolf. "I wouldn't be the one to not participate in it, either."Workman said that he's a little concerned about his safety and that no matter what happens, he is going to finish his speech, which will address the controversy."I would have done it again in a heartbeat, because I know I was standing up for what I believe was right," he said. "To do anything but that would have let me down at the end of the day."

In the wake of the suit, school officials said they will not screen speeches by four seniors, which leads some to believe a student will read a prayer as part of their speech.David Edds, superintendent of Greenwood Schools, said he expects students to behave at commencement, but he is concerned about audience members. Extra security officers will be on hand.
JMC Ministries Response

This young man is the future of the United States Of America. And even before he graduates high school he is already trampling on the Rights of his fellow Students and American Citizens Even while saying he is a Christian but The Law is the Law.

If students want to pray at their graduation let them pray. If they don't then let them sit by silently out of respect for those who do want to. No one is forcing this kid to pray.

What is so wrong with people wanting to pray over your future and life? When we pray we ask for blessing not curses and bad things or so we have been taught in the bible.

As long as "Freedom Of Religion" is in our U.S Constitution People need to continue to fight against children and people like this or we will just see all our rights taken away.

WE can only pray for this young man that he sees the truth and allow the Love of Christ to infiltrate into his heart and change his life.

13 year old Suspended Indefinitely from School For Wearing Rosary

By Michael Carl

Officials at a New York middle school have decided a rosary could be a symbol of gang activity and have suspended a student for wearing one, but now a legal action is developing that will challenge the school's censorship.

Oneida Middle School officials say their district-wide police in the Schenectady Public School District bans any bandanas or other apparel – including beads – that can be associated with street gangs.

The result? The suspension of 13-year-old middle schooler Raymond Hosier, who chose to wear the rosary as a symbol of his faith and in honor of a deceased brother and uncle.

The American Center for Law and Justice now has confirmed officials have dispatched a letter to the school demanding the school allow the rosary, as protected by the First Amendment, or face a court challenge.

The ACLJ said the school system's dress code is too vague and that just about any clothing accessory could be labeled gang-related.

The dispute started last week when Hosier came to school wearing a rosary, and a principal ordered him to go home.

"A week ago, he was told to either remove the rosary or be sent home. The first day he was sent home. He returned back to school with the rosary, and the school district said he was suspended for two more days.

He said 'Fine, send me home,'" Jordan Sekulow of the ACLJ explained.

"Raymond goes home, the weekend comes and he came to school this week, and when he showed up with his rosary on, they said he was suspended indefinitely," Sekulow said.

Sekulow, the ACLJ's foreign affairs coordinator, said Hosier was just trying to do what he believes he should.

"You know, Raymond decided to take a stand. He's just 13 years old. He decided to take a stand and I don't think many 13-year-olds would be able to take a stand like that," Sekulow said. "He was clearly trying to do something here that his conscience was telling him to do."

"Raymond said he wasn't trying to start something, but the school officials targeted him specifically and came after him because of their policy on gang-related items including bandanas, colors, flags, and beads," Sekulow added.

Sekulow believes that if the issue goes to court as he expects, Hosier's suspension will not be the only issue that will be on trial. Sekulow believes that the district's dress code will also be on trial.

"The federal courts have been very leery of these school dress code policies that ban anything that could be related to gang imagery. If you look at their school policy, it's so broad that they go to the point where they are defining what is gang related," Sekulow added.

"In their definition, they can ban colors, flags, bandanas, and anything with beads. Let me read you the actual policy. Quoting directly, 'A student's dress shall not denote, represent or be deemed to be gang related, including but not limited to, bandanas, colors, flags or beads,'" Sekulow quoted.

"The school told him to take that (the rosary) off because it could be gang related," Sekulow stated.

"He said, 'Listen, I'm doing this for my uncle and my brother. I'm not doing this because I'm a member of a gang. Everyone knows I'm not a member of a gang,'" Sekulow quoted.

The ACLJ attorney added that Hosier had not been in trouble before.

"He's a good student. He's never been in any trouble. He's not a rabble rouser and he's not trying to start any controversy. He's not trying to start a religious trend. He only wanted to express his faith and honor his uncle and brother," Sekulow said.

Sekulow said this isn't the first time the Schenectady school system has been sued over the issue.

"In 2005 a 12-year-old girl (Raven Furbert) had family members serving in Iraq and she wore a red, white and blue beaded necklace and was told by the school to take it off," Sekulow said.

"She sued and the school had to settle out of court and that presumably means a monetary out of court settlement. The superintendent of the school district was an assistant superintendent then and he was named in the suit," Sekulow said.

RFID Chip Implanted in to Humans Can Get Viruses

Click to read original article from BBC News

Researchers have found that implanted identity chips can pick up computer viruses.

Reading University's Mark Gasson conducted an experiment to show how radio frequency identity (RFID) chips could become electronically infected.

He explained to Rory Cellan-Jones the risks involved with the new technology including its effects on medical implants such as pacemakers.

JMC Ministries Response

Back in 2007 CNBC did an interview with one of the people who works for those who make the RFID Chip/Verichip Technology. He states in this debate that there are no worries about getting the Chip implanted into you because it has been FDA Approved. Even though as you will see people are arguing there could risks involved with taking this chip into your body.

But now the article above has come out from the BBC News that there are risks. That people can hack into these chips and infect them with viruses. So obviously those who are working to make this technology and trying to sell it to America and the world are NOT Telling us the truth. As you will see when you watch the below video

Obama Skipping Memorial Day Tradition To Go On Vacation

Click to read full Article from

Posted by Erick Erickson (Profile)

Barack Obama is skipping the Memorial Day tradition of the President laying a wreath at the tomb of the unknowns. It is not unprecedented. George H. W. Bush was on the campaign trail in 1992 and scheduled to speak at an American Legions event in Maine on Memorial Day.

Ronald Reagan was in the midst of a contentious economic summit in 1983 and so sent George H. W. Bush on his behalf.

Barack Obama wants to go on vacation — the second vacation he has had since oil began spilling out of the gulf. That’s okay though because the oil spilling is George W. Bush’s fault, just like all the new dead soldiers are George Bush’s fault too. Why should he care?

The problem for Barack Obama is simple.

The troops don’t like him no matter how much the White House propaganda machine tries to gin up staged pictures of Obama voting soldiers fawning all over him. But see the tepid response from cadets at West Point or talk privately with lots of soldiers and sailors and you get something else — they fundamentally do not respect their Commander in Chief.

There was no question they respected and loved Ronald Reagan. Same with George H. W. Bush, the last veteran of World War II to serve as President.

Obama? Not so much. And what does the left do when you point this out? They equate dead soldiers to political props/ Seriously.

By suggesting this President, in the midst of a war, should probably be going to Arlington National Cemetery for Memorial Day instead of taking his second vacation in a month, conservatives are somehow suggesting he use dead soldiers as political props.

After eight years of the left demanding publicity of flag draped coffins returning to Deleware from overseas to use as political props against George W. Bush, it is more than a little humorous to have the left now accuse the right of doing the same. It also ignores a fundamental point leftists too busy calling our soldiers “war criminals” and our dead soldiers “political props” miss — going to Arlington National Cemetery to lay a wreath at the tomb of the unknowns has nothing to do with using dead soldiers as political props and everything to do with a Commander in Chief who seems to not like the military showing some basic respect to the men and women, alive and dead, who have actually kept us free.

Obama may talk about the government in the first person, but the men and women lying at Arlington know differently.

Should it really surprise us that our President would rather take a vacation during memorial day and in the midst of the worst oil spill ever in history along with all the other problems our country is facing? I don't think so.

Obama canceled the National Day of Prayer Ceremony at the White House This Month so it should not be a surprise that he is canceling all other events that all past Presidents have taken part in. Those who voted for our current leader voted for someone who does NOT care about anything that has to do with our country. He's more about trying to put the blame on past presidents and leaders for everything that is wrong with our country and so to avoid dealing with anything it seems he takes a 2nd vacation trip in just 2 months. What a way to use our Tax dollars Mr. President Great Job!

As the wife of a Veteran of our Current War and the granddaughter of a Korean War Veteran I feel Mr. Obama has NO respect for our service men and women. I am happy that my Grandfather is no longer alive to see what this country has become that he fought for because he would be heart broken.

But for us that are still alive we must keep fighting against those who are trying to take everything away that our armed service men and women have fought and died for since the Revolutionary War. FREEDOM!

President Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize this year. Why? Honestly I have no idea because he is doing NOTHING to promote peace he is sending more and more of our troops to fight and protect our borders. To fight in Afghanistan, and just the other day made the statement that the U.S will help fight against North Korea to protect South Korea from being attacked again after North Korea Sank one of South Korea's Ships. He keeps placing our troops into harms way and won't even acknowledge them on Memorial day for all they have done and sacrificed. That should make us all boiling mad!

We as Christians need to lift up our Service men and women in prayer and support those who are fighting right now to protect us from terror and those who seek to destroy our freedoms. Because it is obvious that our Current President sure isn't going to do it.

Man Brings Gun To Church In Pennsylvania

Gulf Coast Oil Spill of 2010

Written by Miranda Caverley

It has been almost 40 days since a BP offshore oil rig collapsed in the Gulf Of Mexico killing all the workers and creating what is now the worst Oil Spill Ever in History. We at JMC Ministries have been following this story since it happened. And after nearly 40 days oil is still spilling out of the ruptured pipe that is now 150 miles wide.

Animals are dying, and now the oil has begun to reach the shores of Louisiana and the states that line the Gulf Coast. Volunteers are trying to help by cleaning up what they can and saving as many animals as they can. And with the Hurricane Season Approaching there is no idea how much devastation could happen if a category 5 hurricane hits the Gulf Coast While this oil is there. The damage could be on a biblical proportion.

But the most insulting news that we found out today was from our local NBC 4 news station here in Ohio. They posted this question on Facebook today "Question: The government wants to increase an oil tax to help pay for the oil spill in the Gulf. Should taxpayers have to foot the bill for BP's mistake? Or should we help clean it up? Sound off!"

American Citizens didn't cause this it was the company BP and they make Billions of dollars every year but they want the already struggling American Citizens to take the responsibility for what they caused.

We have a president who has been in office for nearly 2 years now and still is saying that what is wrong with America since he has gotten in to office is NOT his fault and puts the blame on the past president who isn't even leading this country any longer! He has not taken any responsibility for anything that he has signed into law or done but throws the blame onto someone else who is not even in power anymore. So BP is obviously going on the example our own President has been showing for the past 2 years.

How is it that our Country has fallen so far that those with all the power and money don't have to take responsibility for their actions or lack of and just put the blame on someone else or make someone else have to pay higher taxes on gas because they messed up and created the worst oil spill in Human History. And even today they still have not stopped the oil from flowing out of the ruptured pipe we can only pray that they can stop this before it gets any worse.
BP is going to try again tomorrow to try and stop the Oil Spill. To read about that click on the link below and we will continue to cover this story as it develops
BP says equipment in place for 'top kill' effort to plug Gulf oil spill

Rifqa Bary Diagnosed With Uterine Cancer

Click to read original Article from NBC

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A teenage girl who converted to Christianity and ran away from her Ohio home alleging she would be harmed has been diagnosed with cancer and is undergoing surgery.

Rifqa Bary, who fled Ohio last year and stayed with a Florida minister she met on Facebook, is scheduled for an operation for uterine cancer Thursday.

Jamal Jivanjee, a Florida minister and friend of the girl, says Bary is expected to need several rounds of chemotherapy after the surgery.

The 17-year-old girl from suburban Columbus returned to Ohio earlier this year and has been in foster care while a judge tries to reconcile Bary and her family.

Bary's Muslim parents deny allegations she would have been harmed and police found no evidence she was in danger in Ohio.


JMC Ministries Response

We have been following and sharing articles about Rifqa since her story broke over a year ago. This young woman has been through so much and now is facing this battle with Cancer.

We just lift Rifqa up in prayer that God heal her body and restore her to health. We also pray that this battle she is continuing to go through with her family and fearing for her life because she converted to Christianity will be worked out and that peace can come to this family.

JMC Ministries will continue to share news about Rifqa as this story unfolds. We are praying for you Rifqa and may God Bless you.

Homeland Security Issues Search Warrant to Sex Offender Census Worker

PENNSAUKEN, N.J. - May 21, 2010 (WPVI) -- Action News has learned the Department of Homeland Security issued a search warrant in connection with the case of a convicted sex offender who got a job as a Census worker in New Jersey.

Those warrants are for two locations in connection to Frank Kuni, who is being charged with using a fake Social Security number in the application he filled out in March to get the Census job.

Pennsauken Police and the Social Security Administration's Office of Investigations are also involved in the search warrant.

They are searching for laptop computers, false ID's or any documents that would be able to prove he used false identification. They have already confiscated numerous laptops and large sums of money.

This case came to light earlier this week, when Action News reported that Pennsauken resident Amy Schmalbach recognized Kuni from the NJ State Police sex offender registry.

He had come to her door as part of his job, and Schmalbach let him in because he had the proper credentials. Soon, however, she realized something wasn't right.

Schmalbach told Action News, "I looked closely at his face and I realized I recognized this man from the NJ State Police sex offender registry."

Kuni is a registered sex offender who's served time for a number of crimes including inappropriate contact with children. Kuni was convicted in 1996 of sexually assaulting one girl and having inappropriate contact with another.

"He has a laundry list of things he's done," Schmalbach said, "and he could have very well hurt me or, even worse God forbid, my son."

Kuni used one of his 16 aliases to get a job with the U.S. Census, which fired him after he failed the fingerprint and background check. But he'd already started making house visits before being let go.

Fernando Armstrong, the U.S. Census Regional Director, told Action News, "This is an isolated incident, that fortunately we were able to identify and pull the ID and terminate his appointment."

Since becoming a mother Amy Schmalbach faithfully checks the sex offender registries every couple months, and it paid off. She alerted her neighbors and police about the convicted predator knocking on doors and collecting personal information.

Kuni's first court appearance will be on Thursday in Camden.

Why the Government is Failing & How Satan is Taking Over the World!

Written by: Jeremy Caverley

I have been told that Christians should NOT be involved in politics! This is why our world is becoming darker everyday. When the light and salt of the Earth is removed, Satan has free reign to do what he wants. It is time for Christians to STAND UP and VOTE and get involved in the political spectrum again. Go to school and learn the history. Then get involved in political science and some of you will and could be the next LEADERS for this COUNTRY! This is the CHANGE that is needed for the world! Godly advised men & women in office!

Teacher Ordered to Remove 'In God We Trust' Poster 25 years later

Click to read Original Story from
Fox Nation

A San Diego math teacher was forced to remove two posters from his classroom walls because they included the phrases "In God We Trust," "One Nation Under God" and "God Bless America."
A federal judge said the Poway Unified School District was wrong to order the removal of the posters, and now the school district is appealing the judge's decision to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
Brad Johnson, who has been an educator for 32 years, told Baptist Press he began hanging motivational posters in his classroom early in his career.
As he stood with his students to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, and as he thought about the Declaration of Independence and other staples of American history, he decided to hang a red, white and blue poster reflecting the sentiments of the nation. The poster hung in his classroom for 25 years without anyone complaining.

About 20 years ago, Johnson added another poster that says "All Men Are Created Equal, They Are Endowed By Their Creator."
"I have a lot of nature pictures in my classroom from national parks and other nationally recognized scenes, so I put that poster up around all my nature pictures to reflect that as a nation we believe that we're not here as an accident, that we've been created and we've been endowed by a Creator with our rights," Johnson, a math teacher at Westview High School, said.
Johnson doesn't talk about the posters in class, and he said students have commented that his classroom is a relaxing, refreshing and inspirational place.
But in the fall of 2006, another math teacher asked the principal why the posters were permitted. The principal sought guidance from district administrators, and the assistant superintendent, Bill Chiment, was assigned to investigate.
Chiment reasoned, according to the court ruling, that none of the individual phrases on the posters would be a problem, but the combined influence "over-emphasized" God. He also said the phrases were taken out of their original contexts, and as a solution he proposed that Johnson place a full copy of the Declaration of Independence and pictures of U.S. coins on the wall.
Johnson asserted his right to hang the posters in his classroom, and the Thomas More Law Center, a national public interest law firm based in Michigan, filed a federal lawsuit on his behalf in 2007.
U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez ruled in February that Johnson's First Amendment rights were violated and that he should be allowed to hang the posters. Benitez said the posters clearly constitute free speech, and public school teachers have First Amendment rights.


JMC Ministries Response

25 years this poster hung in this classroom and only now someone has a problem with it. So much that even after the judge found in favor of the teacher the school is still fighting over this poster and taking it to the Ninth Circuit Court One of the most liberal Courts in our Country to try and appeal this ruling!

What has changed so much in America in 25 years that a poster that says What is written on some of  our Nations most historical Documents is now offensive? What has changed?

Those words have not those words on that poster are the same words that were put in our constitution in 1776 they are the same words even today that we say during the Pledge of Allegiance! What has Changed?

Clearly it is the people of this nation, the teachers who are teaching in our schools, those in power leading our country. Who want to obliterate anything that our Country was founded on especially God and Christian Values.

Those words will remain long after the people who are complaining about them and trying to silence those words from even being spoken die and are rotting in their graves! Those words will still live on! Those words will remain after all the bickering, fighting and debating whether they are Constitutional or Not ! Those Words Will Live On.

Because They are the Truth and the truth sets us free.

New Jersey: Registered Sex Offender Hired as U.S Census Worker

Click to read full story from NBC Philadelphia 
A man with a U.S. census badge knocked on Amy Schmalbach’s door on May 4. Thinking that answering the door to a government worker was a safe bet, she did. And then she wondered why he looked so familiar.As soon as the man left her Pennsauken home, Schmalbach realized where she had seen him before: on the state’s sex-offender registry."I figured this is a government worker, I'm safe," Schmalbach, 33, told the Inquirer. She had given him names and birthdates of her family to the man who called himself “Jamie.”The man’s real name is Frank J. Kuni, but goes by many aliases, including Jamie Shepard. It was under the name “Jamie Shepard” that he applied for a door-to-door job with the census bureau.
Schmalbach verified on the sex-offender registry that the man who was knocking on doors in her neighborhood was indeed the 47-year-old Kuni who has been convicted of assaulting an underage girl, and having “inappropriate contact with two other victims,” according to the registry.
Then Schmalbach called police and warned her neighbors.
"If I had not recognized who this person was, none of my neighbors would have, and I believe he would have continued to go door to door," Schmalbach told the Inquirer.
Kuni was arrested Monday on charges of false representation and impersonating a public official, according to police.
A census official told the Inquirer that a “Jamie Shepard” had been hired in late April after passing the name check, but was fired May 5, as he failed the fingerprint check.
The census hired about 600,000 people to work home visits in the last week of April, Fernando E. Armstrong, director for the Philadelphia region, told the Inquirer.
"When you are looking at 600,000 people going through this check, you can understand that it doesn't always work the way it should," Armstrong said.
JMC Ministries Response

This incident in New Jersey is now problem number 5 that we have heard people having from all over the country with the U.S Census and the Workers that are coming and knocking at peoples doors. This particular incident happened just 1 day after the incident we had here in Ohio with a U.S Census Worker.

The Fact that the director of the Census Bureau in New Jersey was quoted in saying, "When you are looking at 600,000 people going through this check, you can understand that it doesn't always work the way it should."  

EXCUSE ME?!!!! How are you NOT going to take full responsibility for hiring people who should NOT be able to just come on your property and ask you questions that they could use like this man could have to rape and even kidnap the children living inside the home? This is why all businesses do background checks, to see if people are who they say they are and are not a danger to those they will be working with or interacting with.  How is the U.S Government saying that they are not responsible?!  Sorry Mr. Armstrong, We cannot understand your logic when you say the System that is set up to hire people to be Government employees isn't always going to work! That is WRONG!  The U.S Government is putting peoples lives in danger just to get us all in the Governments Data Base so they can keep tabs on us any means possible even if it means hiring criminals and registered Sex offenders.

We never did receive a phone call back from the Detroit Michigan Census Bureau Office that is over Ohio about our complaint about the woman who came to our home. And as we continue to hear these kinds of stories it is more and more clear that the U.S Government Census Doesn't care about the citizens of this country and will hire anyone they can to get all the information about you by any means necessary.
This man was fired thank goodness but as Mr. Armstrong stated that they hired 600,000 people and that the system isn't always going to work. So how many other criminals, sex offenders, rapists, etc have slipped through these background checks gave false information who haven't been caught yet? To us it is clear that Mr. Armstrong isn't too worried.  But America We need to be.  

One woman in Indiana woman who is handicapped  was raped last week by a Census Worker!  How many more people have to have these kinds of experiences? How many more people have to report that the U.S Government has hired Registered Sex Offenders before more action is taken to ensure the safety of American Citizens? Enough Is Enough! We must take a stand. 

JMC Ministries did by taking our story to our Local News Station in Ohio, Talking about it on our JMC LIVE show and continuing to cover these kinds of stories here on the Eternal Flame News. The Truth Sets you free so share this with your friends and family and protect yourself. Make sure that if a Census Worker comes to your door you get their name,  badge number everything even what kind of car they are driving and the license plate number if the person is asking you questions that you feel they shouldn't be asking or seem suspicious. And make to call the U.S Census Bureau for your State or Town.  Don't be afraid to take a stand for your family and your neighborhood you may just be saving someones life like this woman did by getting this Registered Sex Offender off the Streets and coming to peoples homes disguised as a U.S Census Worker.

FEMA Photographer Finds Salvation Army Logo Offensive

JMC Ministries Response
JMC Ministries has been involved with the salvation army for 6 years. We have volunteered helping with their children programs, bell ringing at christmas time, even playing music for their church services here in chillicothe Ohio. 
For someone to find the Salvation Army logo offensive like this FEMA worker did, even to go as far as telling these volunteers that he won’t take their picture if they don’t change their shirt is just ridiculous. 
If it was us we would have told the man to not take our picture. How does wearing the Salvation Army Logo on a t-shirt offends someone more than these t-shirts and clothes people wear today that have some of the most horrible language on them and are so revealing that little is left to the imagination of what the person looks like underneath?
If Christians and faith based people helping to rebuild their communities and helping those in need are so bad, then why aren’t the atheists, and others who don’t want religion in anything out their beside the Salvation Army volunteers helping their community? Where are you non-religious people who want to make a difference in your community, help the poor, hungry, and needy? Why aren’t you standing up beside the Salvation Army and all the others who are there helping to rebuild peoples homes since it is so offensive to have faith based organizations and people helping?
We can only thank FEMA for taking a stand against what this person for what he did to these people who just wanted to make a difference in their community by being an example of What Jesus called us to do as Christians.

Texas Homeless Student Becomes Validictorian of His School


HOUSTON - By all accounts, he's the best kind of kid, the kind with plenty of reasons not to be.
"Those things that you experience, that you live through, that you witness, I think they shape the character you become," Victor Cardenas says.

Cardenas is a film student at Houston's Furr High school who picked up a camera last year and crafted a haunting story.
The tale he told was his own.

"We never had money, we never had food. My mother didn't care that she had four kids," Cardenas tells his own camera in the film he dubbed "Being Victor".
"It was knives, guns and it was people ending up in the hospital. It was my own family ending up in the hospital. She kicked out my brothers, she kicked out me and it was on our own. I was 14 years-old," he says during a tightly framed monologue within the film.

"Being Victor" it seems, meant, being homeless.
For far too many nights, he bedded down, as best he could, on a park bench in Denver Harbor.
A throw away kid, ashamed and alone.

"I guess I didn't want to say anything, to anybody," he explains.
This is where many stories end badly, but not this one, not by a long shot.

by SusanAnne Hiller Just when we thought–which appears to be alive and well when clicked–was scary and invasive–it seems the Obama administration’s Census Bureau has outdone itself.  A US census worker, driving a metallic gray Ford Taurus-type car, has been reported to be combing through the Memphis, TN suburb of Germantown knocking on doors asking people for information on their neighbors.

Yes, you read that correctly. The US census worker was asking how many people lived in the house next door on or about April 1, 2010. As if there wasn’t enough controversy with the census already, this just adds fuel to the fire.
According to the source, here’s what happened when Obama’s Orwellian Big Brother knocked:
The census worker identified himself, showed his credentials, and continued to ask if she knew if the house next door was occupied on April 1 of this year.  The census worker also indicated that he had “difficulty” contacting the neighbors.  After the source confirmed the house was occupied on April 1st, the census worker continued by asking, “How many people occupied that house?”
My source responded by saying, “If they haven’t filled out their census, I can’t help you and I have no intention of telling you anything about my neighbors and your recourse is to enforce your penalties.”
The worker replied, “Well you know why we take the census don’t you?”
My source replied, “Yes, in this case, to redistribute my wealth.  And you are not permitted to ask me about my neighbors.”
The worker went on to say that the census is used to figure out the number of representatives and federal monies that would be allocated.  The source still refused to answer and the census worker was asked to leave the property.
He then proceeded to knock on the other neighbor’s doors, apparently, to get the information he was sent our for.  Let’s just hope that these people are not attorneys because this is a clear violation of the privacy and security procedures of the census to ensure an accurate and secure count.  Nowhere in this information does it say your neighbors can provide census information.

So clearly what happened to us in Ohio is NOT a isolated incident and is happening to people in other states like Tennessee.  They also felt the Privacy and Security act was violated just as we did. 

It is more than clear that The U.S Census has their own agenda and they are NOT doing what their website says a U.S Census should be doing. The Government is trying to get people to fill out Census Forms on their neighbors which could be falsified information. 

Obama said he wanted an accurate count of everyone. So how does having me fill out a Census form on my past neighbors who have moved on to another place give an accurate count? And still we have not gotten a phone call back from the Census Bureau over Ohio to give us these answers.

Don't go to CHURCH? Then you might be an Obama Supporter

( - President Barack Obama’s overall approval rating stood at 49 percent for the most recent three-day period, and at 50 percent for the week ending May 8, but it would be lower than that if America consisted exclusively of people who attend church with some regularity.

Non-church goers form the base of Obama’s support, according to Gallup polling data.

U.S Census Worker Beats and Rapes Woman in Indiana

JMC Ministries Response

When you read the description on this video when you watch it on youtube the person who loaded it wrote..."I guess we know where the acorn employees got jobs... Obama hired them all as census workers it seems.

It was said that SEIU and ACORN would be working to help do the U.S Census this year and after what happened to us and talking to many of our friends they are starting to wonder the same thing about SEIU and ACORNS Roll in the Census.

Either way it is clear that the people doing the hiring of these Census workers are NOT doing their jobs and protecting the American Citizens Last week in Texas a Man was murdered by people pretending to be Census Workers But this case is of An Actual Employee of the U.S Census t takes it to a whole other level of who is really running This Program and hiring these people who clearly should NOT have been hired and going to peoples homes only to turn around to beat and rape them.

The Census Workers have only been going door to door a week and look at all the news that is popping up about it and the troubles people are having. There Needs to Be some answers as to why all this is happening.

Mojave Desert Memorial Cross STOLEN!

The 7-foot-tall metal cross in a 75-year-old war memorial that withstood the heat of the Mojave Desert and a blazing battle in the Supreme Court over its legality was ripped down and stolen Sunday night, according to federal officials.

"This is an outrage, akin to desecrating people's graves," said Kelly Shackelford, president of the Liberty Institute, which represents the caretakers of the Mojave Desert War Memorial. "It's a disgraceful attack on the selfless sacrifice of our veterans. We will not rest until this memorial is re-installed."

JMC Ministries Interviewed by NBC 4 News

Miranda Caverley of JMC Ministries being interviewed by NBC 4 News about a Suspicious U.S. Census
Worker That Came to Her Home Last Week and how you can protect yourself from being a victim of someone impersonating a U.S. Census Worker

Written By: Jeremy Caverley
Miranda Shared this story here on the Eternal Flame News last week when it happened.  To read the full story and get her thoughts on what happened click on  U.S Govt Census Worker Wanting Us To Give Out Personal Information On Our Neighbors

You may be wondering why we went to NBC and shared our story, This is why. Last Tuesday May 4, 2010 the day after the Census Worker came to our home. We called the Census Bureau in Detroit Michigan who is over the state of Ohio after being referred to them by the Census Bureau Headquarters. We called and Miranda told the woman about what had happened gave the woman on the phone all the information she had gotten from our Landlord. Because, the Census worker left a paper for our landlord to fill out with all her information on it she left her name, her badge ID #, The phone number for the Newark Ohio Census Bureau office that she said she worked at, and even a phone number where she herself could be reached personally. 

But the woman on the phone from the Detroit Census Office tried to argue with Miranda and told her, "Mam they can ask questions about your neighbors." Miranda asked the woman how they could ask questions about people that don't even live in the homes anymore and want you to help them fill out a Census Form on them. After that was said the woman from the Census Bureau tells Miranda, "well mam I'll have to have my manager call you back, because they are in a meeting right now." We gave the woman all our information on how to reach us. They never called us back and that has been a week today. So that is why we contacted NBC 4 because we weren't getting any answers. 
When Tom Brockman came to the house he said he had called The Media head person for the Census and was told that They had only been sending people door to door since May 1st 2010 and as of May 3, 2010 the workers should NOT Be asking you questions about your neighbors and past neighbors. 
So after hearing what Tom Brockman said makes us think there is really more to this story since the Census Bureau told Tom Brockman this shouldn't have happened and the fact that the Detroit Census Office never returned our phone call. This is obviously not a closed case and we will be continuing try and investigate it and if we get any answers to our questions we will be giving an update.

President Obama Cancels White House 2010 National Day Of Prayer Ceremony

Obama cancelled 2010 White House National Day of Prayer ceremony. The National Day of Prayer has historically been the first Thursday in May, since Harry S. Truman put it into effect in 1952, but wasn’t official until the days of Ronald Reagan.

For eight years, the White House held a celebration on the National Day of Prayer, and last year Obama cancelled the celebration, and the ceremony has been cancelled for 2010.  In 2009, CNN reported that Obama was toning down the National Day of Prayer by cancelling the White House ceremony, but that the official day was not cancelled.

JMC Ministries Response

Are we surprised by this headline showing up in the news today? Honestly No. President Obama has from the first day of becoming our President started to remove anything that had to do with God and Christianity from the White House.

He cancelled the 2009 National Day of Prayer Ceremony at the White house so it comes as no surprise to us that he has done it again this year and clearly it seems to do it again every year that he is in office.

After the Federal Judge in Wisconsin ruled that the national day of prayer was unconstitutional The Obama administration is now appealing that ruling. But how can you appeal this ruling and make people think you care about the National Day of Prayer and then turn around a month or so later and completely cancel the ceremony at the White House?

Where is the logic in that? How can you say you are supporting by appealing only to turn around and cancel it at the White House?

So many questions and it seems we will never get them answered  just like the questions people have about his birth certificate.

Franklin Graham Prays for America

A Prayer for the Nation (Franklin Graham, Honorary Co-Chair of this year's National Day of Prayer)


We are thankful for the abundant blessings you have bestowed on America.  Our Forefathers looked to you as protector, provider, and the promise of hope.  But, we have wandered far from that firm foundation. May we repent for turning our backs on your faithfulness. 

We pray that this great nation will be restored by your forgiveness.  From bondage, you grant freedom.  Through your own sacrifice, you offer salvation.  From the state of despair, you offer peace.  From the bounties of heaven you have blessed - not because of our goodness - but by your grace. 

You have given us freedom to worship you in spirit and in truth as your Holy Word instructs.  May our lives honor you in word and in deed.  May our nation acknowledge that all good things come from the Father above. 

President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed that our nation should set apart a day for national prayer to confess our sins and transgression in sorrow, "yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon...announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord. "

"We have vainly imagined in the deceifulness of our own hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own...We have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God who made us!  It behooves us then to confess our national sins and to pray for clemency and forgiveness."

Help us to pray earnestly for our President and leaders who govern, that they will humble themselves and seek your guidance so that everything we do will shine the light of your glory in a darkened world.  May our prayers as a people and a nation be heard and blessed for such a time as this.  We make this plea in faith, believing in the might name of Jesus our Lord.  Amen. 

California School Sends Home 5 Students For Wearing American Flag T-Shirts


Would you believe this shirt is offensive to wear in The U.S.A? One California School thought so and sent 5 students home for wearing it.

Click to read full story from Fox News

Administrators at a California high school sent five students home on Wednesday after they refused to remove their American flag T-shirts and bandannas -- garments the school officials deemed "incendiary" on Cinco de Mayo.

The five teens were sitting at a table outside Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Calif., on Wednesday morning when Assistant Principal Miguel Rodriguez asked two of them to remove their American flag bandannas, one of their parents told The boys complied, but were asked to accompany Rodriguez to the principal's office.

The five students -- Daniel Galli, Austin Carvalho, Matt Dariano, Dominic Maciel and Clayton Howard -- were then told they must turn their T-shirts inside-out or be sent home, though it would not be considered a suspension. Rodriguez told the students he did not want any fights to break out between Mexican-American students celebrating their heritage and those wearing American flags.

Dariano's mother, Diana, told she and parents of the other four students are now demanding an apology from officials and are considering a lawsuit.

"We want an apology," Diana Dariano said Thursday. "Who in the United States of America would have an issue with that? It's a sad, sad day."

Dariano said her son has at least four T-shirts with American flags that he wears often and did not try to cause any conflict at school.

"I'm more hurt than anything," she said. "It is so hurtful and disrespectful the way this has turned. These are American kids"

The boys told Rodriguez and Principal Nick Boden that turning their shirts inside-out was disrespectful, so their parents decided to take them home, the Morgan Hill Times reports.

"I just couldn't believe it," Julie Fagerstrom, Maciel's mother, told the newspaper. "I'm an open-minded parent, but it's got to be on both sides. It can't be five kids singled out."

Galli told NBC Bay Area, "They said we could wear it on any other day, but today is sensitive to Mexican-Americans because it's supposed to be their holiday so we were not allowed to wear it."

In a statement released on Wednesday, the Morgan Hill Unified School District said it did not agree with the school's actions.

"In an attempt to foster a spirit of cultural awareness and maintain a safe and supportive school environment, the Live Oak High School administration took certain actions earlier today," the statement read. "The district does not concur with the Live Oak High School administration's interpretation of either board or district policy related to these actions."

Officials at Live Oak High School and the Morgan Hill Unified School District did not return several messages seeking comment on Thursday. A secretary told the Morgan Hill Times that Boden and Rodriguez were unavailable for comment on Wednesday.

According to its website, Live Oak High School is a 1,300-student institution in the southern part of Santa Clara County, with most students residing in the nearby cities of Morgan Hill and San Jose.

"The student population reflects the rich ethnic and socioeconomic diversity of the community," the website reads.

More than 100 students were spotted wearing the colors of the Mexican flag -- red, white and green -- as they left school, including some who had the flag painted on their faces or arms, the Morgan Hill times reported.

Our first question was did they take down the American Flags that hang in our Schools and on our Schools Flag Poles Too? 

Clearly this proves that there are many who want to get rid of everything that has to do with Honoring or even recognizing The United States of America!

Because, Oh we might offend someone when we proudly wave our Nations flag or Oh we may offend someone when we say the Pledge of Allegiance and leave One Nation Under God in it so we better suppress those who are supporting our nation and what it stands for, or it seems what it USE To stand for.

Did you know that in many states now you can’t even hang yellow ribbons on poles and trees in support of our Men and Women fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan?

Where have our freedoms Gone? What is so dangerous about the freedoms that our Forefathers founded our Country on?  When Children in what seems to be socialist schools now a days can’t even wear their own nations flag because others are afraid they might offend someone.

In schools today girls and boys wear clothing that is almost pornographic at times with shorts and skirts so short it barely leaves anything to the imagination. Shirts and pants so skin tight that it looks like just another layer of skin.  Children wearing clothing that says words that 20 years ago were considered swear words and you would be punished for saying them Even clothing that promotes Satanic rock and metal bands and rappers that use some of the most degrading and horrible language in their lyrics  are ok to wear as a fashion statement in today's schools.

But a t-shirt of the American flag is worse than any of those things. It is so bad that these young boys were told to turn their shirts inside out or be sent home!

Why do we have public schools today? In our opinion to try and brain wash America’s children and re-educate them into being mindless people that will do and believe whatever they are told. These are not public schools anymore they are government run institutes that are trying to take control of your children and take their freedoms away little by little. School is a battle ground for America’s future Generations and if we don’t start fighting to take back our schools, and this Country we are hurriedly losing our chances to change it before it is too late.

Kentucky Congregation Turns Former Bar into Church and Worship Center

Click to read full story from WLWT News 5


A local congregation that holds services at a motel and another church has decided to settle down and find a bar to worship in.

MISSION of God Church, which stands for "Mobilizing Ignited Selfless Servants In Obedience Now," is converting the former TJ's Sports Bar Café into a worship space after months of moving around.

Video: Go Inside Bar, Place Of Worship

The congregation had been holding services at Quality Inn in Florence and renting space at Open Door Church in Erlanger, but now they are clearing out the pool tables and barstools at the one-time Tanners Lane watering hole.

"The stripper's pole was over here, we had to take that down," said Pastor Wayne Guilliams. "A couple members did not want that to stay."

Two congregants who now counsel young people at the church recalled their own wild times at TJ's, before they found God.

"Lots of times you'd leave here and think, how did I make it home?" said Scott Lowe. "I mean, why am I not dead? I've lost a younger brother to a drunk driver and two weeks later my father-in-law the same way."

His longtime friend, Matt Morgan, described the path that led them away from the bar, to church – and then back again.

"Me and him both (realized), talking to one another, going, wow, you know, this can't be all there is, just wasting our lives in bars and doing stuff like that," Morgan said. "You know, where do we go? So here we are now turning the bar into a church."

The church still hasn't obtained all the necessary permits to turn the bar into a sanctuary, but they have a lease on the property.

"We're slowly building our finances up, too, but the Lord's providing," Guilliams said. "We're thankful for this."

While the location may be unusual, the building's past just might serve as a drawing card for potential congregants, the pastor's wife said.

This is just a prime example of taking a place that Satan used and make into a place that is now used to Worship our Lord and Savior and also Help the Community. Instead of Lives being destroyed in this place that people went to drink, party and drown their sorrows. Now can be used to help save lives and restore them.

We can only pray that more Christians stand up and start taking their communities back like this church is. One bar at a time.

Church Reinstates Gay Pastor

Click to Read Full Article From 11

ATLANTA -- St. John's Lutheran Church has been celebrating the reinstatement of its pastor, Bradley Schmeling -- who endured a struggle dating back to 2006.  That's when he told his congregation he was gay -- contrary to the laws of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

The church removed Schmeling from its roster of pastors in 2007.  It also removed Schmeling's partner, Darin Easler, another Lutheran pastor.  But church members like Barbara Arne stuck by Schmeling and his partner.

"I think we were always hopeful we would come to this day, where the ELCA would say 'we want to accept and include everyone who has been called to God's ministry," said Arne. 

Although the ELCA decided to remove pastor Schmeling in 2007, he never really went anywhere.  That's because the church congregation voted to keep him around, making him a pastor without portfolio for nearly three years.

"It was always surreal because on a day to day basis, my life in the ministry didn't change. But there were always people, not in this congregation but in the rest of the church, who didn't think of me as a pastor in the church," said Schmeling.

That doubt is now gone.  The Lutheran church not only reinstated Schmeling, it also reinstated Easler.

"It feels good to have them included." said Arne. "We also know there's a lot of pain for some people who may now feel the ELCA is not their church.  We're sensitive to that and want to support them and walk with them on this journey together."

How can a church say that it is ok and even support their pastor who is committing the sin of Homosexuality and also adultery by sleeping with a person that he is not married to?

Why are people today justifying what the bible calls sexual immorality as something that is ok and they even support in their own church?

The bible says you cannot serve two master for you will love the one and hate the other.  You can not be a leader of the church and commit sin openly.

It seem so many people today are being lead astray by the lies that Satan is feeding them and saying they can justify their sins and God will still love and not turn them away. 

The bible says that God cannot even look upon sin, that is why Jesus came and paid the ultimate price so we can have the chance to come to him and ask for forgiveness of our sins and past transgressions. Not so we can justify sin and say well Jesus loves everyone and knows we aren’t perfect. Yes in a since that is true but when you know what the scriptures say and know that it is a sin and that God says that it is an abomination and you still do not turn away from it you are still sinning and not one of God’s Children. No matter how many times you may say that Jesus still loves you and won’t turn you away.

No we can’t turn this pastor out and not be kind to him but there is a line that we have to draw when it come to those who are leaders in the church and are openly sinning and not asking forgiveness of it and turning away from the sin. We must pray for this man and the church that see that what they are allowing to go on in the church is not Godly and pray that their eyes be open to the truth before it is too late.

Iran Playing War Games In the Persian Gulf is Raising Fears of War

Click to read full article from Fox News

TEHRAN, Iran — In the second military show in less than a month, Iran will hold a new set of maneuvers in the strategic waters of the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman, Iranian media reported on Tuesday.
Iran regularly holds such military exercises but they are likely to heighten tensions, coming at a time of a deepening standoff between the West and Tehran over the country's controversial nuclear program.
"The massive maneuvers dubbed Velayat-89 will show (Iran's) defensive and deterrent naval power," Iranian Navy chief Adm. Habibollah Sayyari was quoted as saying by the official IRNA news agency. Submarine and air force units are also due to participate, he added.
Sayyari also confirmed a recent flyover by an Iranian surveillance jet and its close encounter with a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier, the semi-official Fars news agency reported.
Iran "has the right to conduct routine surveillance flights," Fars quoted Sayyari as saying. He said the F-27 jet flew over the U.S. vessel and "despite their objection, we persisted on our right" to carry out the surveillance.
Sayyari did not elaborate on the time and location of the flyover.
But a U.S. military official said last week the U.S. Navy had a close encounter in international waters of the Gulf of Oman. The official said the jet buzzed the USS Eisenhower, coming within about 1,000 yards (meters) of the ship on April 21. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.
Iran's new war games are to start Wednesday, said IRNA. Fars said the exercise will last for eight days and cover a span of about 97,000 square miles (250,000 square kilometers) of Iranian territorial waters.
Iran's Revolutionary Guard held five-day maneuvers in late April in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz — the waterway for around 40 percent of the world's oil and gas supplies.
The exercises are intended to show off the country's military might and act as a warning, should U.S. or Israel consider a strike on Iranian nuclear facilities. The West suspects Iran's nuclear programs is aimed at building an atomic bomb. Iran denies the charge, saying it's for peaceful purposes, such as power generation.

Tennessee Still Under Water after Historical Flooding

Click To read full article from Fox News

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The dark waters of the Cumberland River slowly started to ebb Tuesday as residents who frantically fled the deadly flash floods returned home to find mud-caked floors and soggy furniture. Rescuers prayed they would not find more bodies as the floodwaters receded.
The river and its tributaries had flooded parts of middle Tennessee after a record-breaking weekend storm dumped more than a foot of rain in two days, rapidly spilling water into homes, roads and some of Music City's best-known attractions.
At least 28 people were killed in Tennessee, Mississippi and Kentucky by either floodwaters or tornadoes. Water submerged parts the Grand Ole Opry House, considered by many to be the heart of country music, and the nearby Opryland Hotel could be closed for up to six months.
The flash flooding caught many here by surprise, and efforts to warn residents to not drive on flooded streets were hampered by power outages. As the water began to recede, bodies were recovered late Monday from homes, a yard and a wooded area outside a Nashville supermarket.
By Tuesday, the flash floods were blamed in the deaths of 17 people in Tennessee alone, including nine in Nashville. Authorities initially said 10 people were killed by floods in Nashville, but on Tuesday, they said one of those people died of natural causes.

Hundreds of people had been rescued by boat and canoe from their flooded homes over the past few days. Those rescue operations were winding down in Nashville on Tuesday, though emergency management officials were checking a report of a house floating in a northern neighborhood, trying to determine if anyone was in it.
It remained unclear how many -- if any -- people were missing in Tennessee. Authorities in southcentral Kentucky searched Tuesday for a kayaker who was last seen Monday afternoon in the swollen Green River.
"Those in houses that have been flooded and some of those more remote areas, do we suspect we will find more people? Probably so," Nashville Deputy Fire Chief Kim Lawson said. "We certainly hope that it's not a large number."

Damage estimates range into the tens of millions of dollars. Gov. Phil Bredesen declared 52 of Tennessee's 95 counties disaster areas after finishing an aerial tour from Nashville to western Tennessee during which he saw flooding so extensive that treetops looked like islands. The flooding also prompted election officials to delay Nashville's local primary, which had been set for Tuesday.
The Cumberland topped out around 6 p.m. Monday at 51.9 feet, about 12 feet above flood stage -- the highest it's reached since 1937. It began to recede just in time to spare the city's only remaining water treatment plant.
The severity of the storms had caught everyone off guard. More than 13.5 inches of rainfall were recorded Saturday and Sunday, according to the National Weather Service, making for a new two-day record that doubled the previous mark.
The water swelled most of the area's lakes, minor rivers, creeks, streams and drainage systems far beyond capacity. It flowed with such force that bridges were washed out and thousands of homes were damaged. Much of that water then drained into the Cumberland, which snakes through Nashville.
The weekend storms also killed six people in Mississippi and four in Kentucky, including one man whose truck ran off the road and into a flooded creek. One person was killed by a tornado in western Tennessee.
About 30 National Guard troops assisted local authorities in southcentral Kentucky on Tuesday, where flooding washed out roads and bridges and shuttered post offices, schools and government buildings.
"It's serious out there still," said Mark Marraccini, spokesman for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife. "These waters are very dangerous."

U.S Govt Census Worker Wanting Us To Give Out Personal Information On Our Neighbors

Written by Miranda Caverley
Normally JMC Ministries shares news that others have found or are covering here at the Eternal Flame News, but this is breaking news right here from our street in Chillicothe Ohio.
Just a few minutes ago I  was sitting here in my house and I see a woman wearing one of those vests that road construction workers normally wear. She was walking up and down our little dead end road that only has 7 houses on it so I knew something was going on. 
She walks down to our landlords house then back up past our house to our new neighbors.  My husband Jeremy looks out the window and says it’s a Census Worker.  I figured she wouldn’t bother us because we had already turned our Census papers back in. 
But no….Just after Jeremy left to go to his college class she knocks on our front door.  The first thing she says is that she’s not here to talk about me because my husband and I had turned our census forms in. What she was here for was to get all the information should could out of me about all my neighbors and even the ones that had recently moved out of the 2 houses on our road.
She wanted to know our landlords name her phone number. What the names were of the neighbors that had just moved out in the past couple of months. How long they lived their even exact dates. And even where they moved to after they moved away from here!
I was seriously thinking “Are you kidding me! The U.S Government is trying to get me to give them all the info I know about my present and past neighbors! NO WAY.”
The only information I gave her was our landlords name when she asked for the phone number I didn’t give it to her because honestly the U.S Govt should already have that information. I politely told her that I knew nothing of our past neighbors and just really tried to keep my mouth shut. 
I already don’t trust the our current President and most of the leaders running our country right now and I am NOT going to be their personal spy agent and give them the information they want.  They have all this technology supposedly to track all of us and keep tabs on us let them use that. But I am NOT going to be a pawn for them to use to get information on my neighbors and friends READ MY LIPS MR. OBAMA! NO!
So be warned U.S Citizens you may be getting a knock on your door from the U.S  Census Worker this year wanting you to give as much information as you know about your neighbors and those that live in your community.
Stand up don’t be afraid to just say NO! It works for drugs why not the U.S Government too!
