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!

UK: Preacher Arrested for saying Homosexuality is a Sin

Click to read full story from London Daily Times
A Christian street preacher has been arrested and charged with a public-order offence after saying that homosexuality was sinful.
Dale Mcalpine was handing out leaflets to shoppers when he told a passer-by and a gay police community support officer that, as a Christian, he believed homosexuality was one of a number of sins that go against the word of God.
Mr Mcalpine said that he did not repeat his remarks on homosexuality when he preached from the top of a stepladder after his leafleting.
But he has been told that police officers are alleging they heard him making his remarks to a member of the public in a loud voice that could be overheard by others.
Mr Mcalpine, 42, who earns about £40,000 a year in the energy industry, was arrested and taken to the local police station in the back of a police van after preaching in the Cumbrian town of Workington on April 20.
After seven hours locked up in a cell, he was charged with using abusive or insulting words or behaviour contrary to the Public Order Act 1986.
Mr Mcalpine – who has delivered open-air sermons and handed out leaflets in Workington for years, and has never been in trouble with the police – said the incident was one of the worst moments of his life.
‘I felt deeply shocked and humiliated that I had been arrested in my own town and treated like a common criminal in front of people I know,’ he said.
‘My freedom was taken away on the hearsay of someone who disliked what I said, and I was charged under a law that doesn’t apply.’
He said he was not homophobic and has gay friends, but he feels compelled by his faith to urge people to abandon all types of sins so they can seek salvation.
‘If you are preaching hate and calling on people to harm others, it is right that is against the law,’ he said. ‘But I would never do that. If we have a free society, I should be allowed to preach the Gospel as generations have before me.’

Christian campaigners said last night they were alarmed that the police seemed to be using legislation originally introduced to deal with violent and abusive rioters and football hooligans to curb free speech.
Neil Addison, a barrister and expert on religious law, said: ‘People should be able to express their opinions freely as long as their conduct is reasonable. In fact, it is part of the duty of the police to protect free speech.’
Mike Judge, a spokesman for the Christian Institute, which is supporting Mr Mcalpine, said: ‘Dale is an ordinary, everyday Christian with traditional views about sexual ethics.
'Some people will agree with him, others will disagree. But it’s not for the police to arrest someone just because others may disagree with what is said.’

Berlin Germany opens new museum At The"Third Reichs" former headquarters

BERLIN (AP) — A knee-high wall, a rusty gate, the brick foundations of razed buildings — such are crumbling remnants of the Nazi empire in the heart of Berlin known by historians as the "center of evil."
Sixty-five years after the end of World War II, a new exhibition center is opening this week on the site where the feared Gestapo, SS and other Nazi agencies ran Adolf Hitler's police state from 1933 to 1945.
The center adds a museum and a library to the previously Spartan exhibit known as the "Topography of Terror," which has attracted as many as 500,000 annual visitors for the last two decades to the former Prinz Albrecht Strasse. New exhibits document how Hitler's Reich operated and how Germans dealt with the dark chapter of history in the aftermath of World War II.
The area — adjacent to the Martin-Gropius-Bau arts museum — once housed not only Hitler's secret police Gestapo and its prison, but also the leadership of the SS, the Nazi party's paramilitary unit, and the Reich Security Main Office, which combined and coordinated all different police agencies.
Nazi leaders such as Heinrich Himmler, Reinhard Heydrich, and Adolf Eichmann all had offices on the street.
"People coming to Berlin still want to know 'Where were the agencies of terror? Where was the capital of the Third Reich?'" Nachama told The Associated Press.
In addition to the new buildings, the new exhibit opens up the entire site, he said.
"Now, they can see the whole area for the first time, all 4.5 hectares (about 11 acres) not just one-eighth of it. They can see the layers of history on the site and they can come in and learn where the terror against millions was initiated and planned," he said

BP Vows to pay for Clean Up of Oil Spill

Energy giant BP vowed Monday to pay "all necessary and appropriate clean-up costs" from the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
The promise came after the White House demanded that BP step up efforts to contain the oil slick that is threatening the Gulf coastline from Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle.
"BP takes responsibility for responding to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. We will clean it up," the company said in a statement.
"BP will pay all necessary and appropriate clean-up costs," it said, adding that BP was "committed to pay legitimate and objectively verifiable claims for other loss and damage caused by the spill."
In an interview Monday with NBC's "Today Show," BP Chief Executive Tony Hayward reiterated the promise, saying said company was "absolutely responsible" for cleaning up the oil spill that resulted when a well exploded on April 20.
Hayward also said BP preparing for a "worst case scenario" that it would need to contain the spill for two to three months.
Hayward said crews have been able to reduce the amount of oil reaching the surface from a massive underwater gusher with a new approach of using chemicals at the gusher.  He said BP is injecting dispersant chemicals into the oil as it pours out of an undersea well. He said it was a new approach and appeared to be having a significant impact on the amount that reaches the spreading surface slick. He did not elaborate.
