Marilyn Ferguson, the author of the 1980 bestseller "The Aquarian Conspiracy" and a galvanizing influence on participants in scores of alternative groups that coalesced as the New Age movement, died Oct. 19 at her home in Banning. She was 70.

The cause was believed to be a heart attack, said her son, Eric, of the adjacent Riverside County city of Beaumont.

Who Is A Jew? Orthodox Judaism Says 40,000 Are NOT!

“But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in." (Matthew 23: 13).

“... I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan." (Revelation 2:9).

Jesus spoke very clearly about the Babylonian traditions of men that weighed heavy over His people. It was later revealed to John, on Patmos, that the future would still deal with this issue.

Michael Hoffman's iron worded revelation book entitled "Judaism Discovered" deals in depth with the issue above and today's article form Fox They are one in the same. Students of Bible Prophecy will be foolish to ignore Hoffman's timely discovery. There is a pace that is converging to one point of humanities greatest fall, be forewarned. - Johnny

Israel's Rabbinical High Court Annuls 40,000 Conversions

Sunday, November 02, 2008

JERUSALEM — Raised without religion in Maryland, Shannon sought to make a new life for herself as a Jew in Israel.

In a rigorous conversion process, she studied religious law for a year, took a Hebrew name and changed her wardrobe to long skirts and sleeves as dictated by Orthodox Jewish custom. Finally, a panel of rabbis pronounced her Jewish.

But five years later, she and some 40,000 like her have suddenly had their conversions annulled by Israel's Rabbinical High Court. The court says the rabbi who heads a government authority set up to oversee conversions is too liberal in approving them.

The issue, now headed to Israel's Supreme Court, has exposed an intensifying power struggle inside Israel's religious establishment over the age-old question of "who is a Jew." It also threatens to deepen the wedge between Israel and American Jews, who largely follow more liberal schools of Judaism.

UN Calls For Sweeping New "Bretton Woods" System

UN calls for sweeping new "Bretton Woods" system

Boo!!!! World's Scariest Stock: Citigroup

Bat got your tongue?

What scares me about Citigroup (NYSE: C)?

Let's start with the obvious ... it's a bank.

I could probably stop there and gain the agreement of most investors, but I'll try to elaborate.

The beginning of the end

To understand the magnitude of Citi's woes, we have to go back to the late '90s. The repeal of the Glass-Steagall act -- a depression-era law designed to protect investors -- paved the way for Citicorp to merge with Travelers Group, forming what we now know as Citigroup ... the granddaddy of "supermarket" banks.

The idea seemed brilliant at the time: Slap every financial product you can think of together, forming a do-it-all behemoth where average Joes could deposit their paychecks, insure their car, and plan for retirement, while investment mavens could structure CDOs, form IPOs, peddle ARSs, and advise CEOs on mergers and acquisitions, all under one roof.

For about a decade, it worked beautifully. Shares tripled from 1997 to 2007, buoyed by juicy dividends. At one point, Citigroup even held the glamorous title of "world's largest company," a colossal giant home to trillions in assets and tens of billions in profits that could do no wrong.

And then the house of cards crumbled.

One heckuva Frankenstein
