Old Life New Life by Valerie Cheers Brown

Take each day as it arrives, see the opportunities as they are presented, and find comfort in the vulnerability of changing.

2016 is just about to leave us and what a blessed year It has been!

We’ve all heard the idiom “Out with the old, in with the new.” It’s very easy to comprehend and simpler to state, however like most guidance we provide for each other, this is an extremely troublesome thing to really DO. As I consider my life now there are such a large number of new places where I am applying this expression and in the same class as that is, a portion of the progressions I’m confronting are HUGE and certainly overpowering.

Well, I’ve positively been one of these individuals and change is troublesome and normally uncomfortable. I’m likewise very determined and nostalgic so unless I’m compelled to roll out an improvement, I have a tendency to stay right where I am. Be that as it may, as of late I understood how unfavorable this manner of thinking is to my future and my determination this year is to grasp the new and toss out the old. I’m somewhat alarmed and additionally so energized!

To make something new,
You got to revoke the old out,
With the objective for things to accrue,
There are seeds for you to sow.
You can’t go from nothing
To something to grow
In the blink of the eye.
You won’t get from here
To there in case you don’t try .
So let the…. old out
Plant something…. in new.

You never will know what you can see to be true.

Out old In new

I see a change of address coming and what do you see coming in 2017?











“It’s impossible to have religious freedom in any nation where the churches are licensed to the government.” 

When a church accepts the 501c3 status, that church:

  • Waives its freedom of speech
  • Waives its freedom of religion
  • Waives its rights to influence legislators and the legislation they craft
  • Waives it constitutionally guaranteed rights
  • Is no longer free to speak to the vital issues of the day
  • Becomes controlled by a spirit of fear that if it doesn’t toe the line with the IRS it will lose the tax-exempt status
  • Becomes a state-owned church
Religion can’t be free on the off chance that you need to pay the legislature, through tax assessment, to practice it. Since churches  aren’t assessable in any case, why do as such a significant number of them go to the IRS and look for authorization to be expense absolved? It happens out of:
Lack of knowledge (“We didn’t know any better”)
Temporary logic rationale (“Everyone else is doing it”)
Proficient exhortation (numerous lawyers and CPAs suggest it)
Does the law require, or even support, a congregation to compose as a 501c3? To answer that question how about we swing to what the IRS itself needs to state.
NOTE: Places of worship Need Not Apply
Keeping in mind the end goal to be considered for duty excluded status by the IRS an association must round out and submit IRS Form 1023 and 1024. Nonetheless, note what the IRS says in regards to houses of worship and church services, in Publication 557:
A few associations are not required to record Form 1023. These include:
Holy places, interchurch associations of nearby units of a congregation, traditions or relationship of holy places, or coordinated helpers of a congregation, for example, a men’s or ladies’ association, religious school, mission society, or youth gather. These associations are absolved automatically if they meet the necessities of segment 501(c)(3).
Houses of worship Are “Naturally Tax-Exempt”
As per IRS Code § 508(c)(1)(A):
Exceptional principles regarding area 501(c)(3) associations.
(a) New associations must tell secretary that they are applying for acknowledgment of segment 501(c)(3) status.
(c) Exceptions.
(1) Mandatory exemptions. Subsections (an) and (b) should not make a difference to—
(A) places of worship, their incorporated assistants, and traditions or relationship of chapels.
This is alluded to as the “required exemption” run the show. Subsequently, we see from the IRS’ claim distributions, and the duty code, that it is totally superfluous for any congregation to apply for expense excluded status. In the IRS’ possess words a congregation “is consequently impose excluded.”
Places of worship Are “Consequently Tax-Deductible”
Furthermore, shouldn’t something be said about duty deductibility? Doesn’t a congregation still need to end up distinctly a 501c3 with the goal that commitments to it can be taken as a duty derivation? The answer is no! As indicated by IRS Publication 526:
Associations That Qualify To Receive Deductible Contributions
You can deduct your commitments just on the off chance that you make them to a qualified association. To end up distinctly a qualified association, most associations other than places of worship and governments, as depicted underneath, must apply to the IRS.
In the IRS’ possess words a congregation “is consequently assess deductible.”
Houses of worship Have a Mandatory Exception To Filing Tax Returns
Not just is it totally pointless for any congregation to look for 501c3 status, to do as such turns into an allow of locale to the IRS by any congregation that acquires that State support. In the expressions of Steve Nestor, IRS Sr. Income Officer (ret.):
“I am by all account not the only IRS representative who’s asked why houses of worship go to the administration and look for consent to be exempted from a duty they didn’t owe in any case, and to look for an assessment deductible status that they’ve generally had at any rate. A large number of us have wondered about how church pioneers need to be directed and controlled by an organization of government that most Americans have implored would quite recently escape their lives. Holy places are in an incredibly special position, yet they don’t appear to know or value the ramifications of what it would intend to be free of government control.”
Most houses of worship in America have composed as “501c3 expense excluded religious associations.” This is a genuinely late pattern that has just been continuing for around fifty years. Chapels were just added to segment 501c3 of the duty code in 1954. We can express gratitude toward Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson for that. Johnson was no partner of the congregation. As a major aspect of his political plan, Johnson had it at the top of the priority list to hush the congregation and dispose of the huge impact the congregation had dependably had on molding “open strategy.”
Despite the fact that Johnson proffered this as “some help” to places of worship, the support likewise accompanied strings connected (more like shackles). One need not look far to see the staggering impacts 501c3 acknowledgment has had to the congregation, and the ensuing confinements set upon any 501c3 church. 501c3 places of worship are disallowed from tending to, in any substantial way, the crucial issues of the day.
For a 501c3 church to straightforwardly stand up, or sort out contrary to, anything that the administration pronounces “legitimate,” regardless of the possibility that it is shameless (e.g. fetus removal, homosexuality, and so forth.), that congregation will imperil its assessment excluded status. The 501c3 has had a “chilling impact” upon the free discourse privileges of the congregation. LBJ was a clever and shrewd government official who appeared to well-acknowledge how effortlessly large portions of the pastorate would offer out.
Did the congregation ever need to look for consent from the legislature to be absolved from expenses? Were holy places preceding 1954 assessable? No, chapels have never been assessable. To be assessable a congregation would initially should be under the locale, and in this manner under the burdening power, of the legislature. The First Amendment unmistakably puts the congregation outside the ward of the common government: “Congress should make NO LAW regarding a foundation of religion, nor restricting the free practice thereof.”

Raw Girl in a Toxic World by Valerie Cheers Brown

Fluoride is a profoundly harmful substance that can bring about a scope of unfriendly wellbeing impacts. Certain individuals from the general population are at especially high danger of damage.

“We observed that for males diagnosed before the age of 20 years, fluoride level in drinking water during growth was associated with an increased risk of osteosarcoma, demonstrating a peak in the odds ratios from 6 to 8 years of age. All of our models were remarkably robust in showing this effect, which coincides with the mid-childhood growth spurt.” (Bassin, et al., Cancer, Causes & Control, 2006)

Cancer will be called a Tumor in this story:

As per the National Toxicology Program (NTP), “the dominance of proof” from research facility examines shows that fluoride is a mutagen (an exacerbate that can bring about hereditary harm). A substance that can bring about hereditary harm is one that can likely bring about, or add to, the improvement of growth.

While the convergences of fluoride bringing on hereditary harm in research facility studies are for the most part far higher than the fixations found in human blood, there are sure “microenvironments” in the body (e.g., the bones, bladder, kidneys, oral cavity, pineal organ) where cells can be presented to fluoride levels that are similar to those creating hereditary harm in the lab. In addition, some exploration has found that cells of primates (counting extraordinary chimps and people) are more powerless to fluoride’s mutagenic impacts than cells of rodents. These elements may clarify why seven studies since the 1990s have discovered proof of hereditary harm in people with high fluoride exposures. (A few studies have not discovered this affiliation.)

Fluoride and Osteosarcoma (Bone Cancer):

The worry that fluoride can bring about growth has been powered by proof connecting it to a genuine type of bone disease known as osteosarcoma. This confirmation incorporates an administration creature consider and also a few investigations of human populaces living in the United States.

Osteosarcoma is an uncommon, however dangerous, type of malignancy that strikes basically amid the high school years. A national case control concentrate on distributed in 2006 by Harvard researchers found that young men presented to fluoridated water amid their sixth, seventh, and eighth years of life (the mid-youth development spurt) had an altogether lifted danger of creating osteosarcoma amid immaturity. (Bassin 2006). The sex-particular connection amongst fluoride and osteosarcoma in youthful guys is reliable with the administration’s creature study, (NTP 1990), which discovered osteosarcomas in the fluoride-treated male rats, yet not the female ones. It is additionally reliable with past studies by the National Cancer Institute and New Jersey Department of Health, which both discovered relationship amongst fluoridation and osteosarcoma in youthful guys, yet not females. (Cohn 1992; NCI 1990)

In spite of the fact that various studies have found no relationship amongst fluoride and osteosarcoma, the Harvard examine by Bassin is the main study to deliberately considered the “age-particular” danger of fluoride introduction. As the famous disease transmission specialist Kenneth Rothman disclosed to the Wall Street Journal:

“‘If there was an antagonistic impact of fluoride, it’s conceivable an impact of early exposure would show in the initial 20 years of life – yet not in the wake of.’ Looking at all ages, as it were, could disguise any connection amongst fluoridation and malignancy.”

Fluoride/Osteosarcoma Link Is “Organically Plausible:”

It is broadly recognized that the fluoride/osteosarcoma association is a naturally conceivable one. At the point when the association between a compound and a disease is organically conceivable, concentrates on that identify a relationship between the two are considered more important, as the affiliation is more averse to be an arbitrary fluke.

The credibility of a fluoride/osteosarcoma association is grounded in the three contemplations:

Bone is the key site of fluoride amassing, especially amid the development spurts of adolescence;

Fluoride is a mutagen when present at adequate fixations; and

Fluoride invigorates the multiplication of bone-shaping cells (osteoblasts), which may “increment the hazard for a portion of the isolating cells to end up distinctly dangerous.” (NRC 2006).

Fluoride and Bladder/Lung Cancer:

Notwithstanding osteosarcoma, various investigations of fluoride-uncovered specialists have discovered relationship between airborne fluoride presentation and both bladder and lung disease. In spite of the fact that fluoride’s relationship with these malignancies has by and large been ascribed to poly fragrant hydrocarbons (PAH) — a non-fluoride airborne contaminant — a twenty-year investigation of a working environment with no PAH presentation found an also lifted rate of both bladder and lung disease in the fluoride-uncovered specialists. (Grandjean 2004). In view of these discoveries, the creators presumed that “fluoride ought to be viewed as a conceivable reason for bladder malignancy and a contributory reason for essential lung tumor.”


Government Admits Dangers Yet Continues To Pump Fluoride Into Your Water Supply

Over 24 other studies have unanimously concluded that fluoride negatively impacts cognitive function. In addition to these 24 studies focusing on cognition, over 100 animal studies have linked fluoride to an increase in male infertility, diabetes, and a whole host of other health problems. In the latest study on cognition, it was found that that 28% of the children who lived in an area where fluoride levels were low achieved the highest test scores. This means that the children exposed to less fluoride scored normal or advanced, while only 8% of fluoridated children did the same.

In fact, the safety precautions regarding sodium fluoride are quite telling themselves.





Something Wonderful? by Valerie Cheers Brown

All of the protest movements of the 1960s captured public attention and raised questions that were important to the nation. The civil rights movement, the women’s movement, and the gay rights movement demanded that Americans consider equality for all citizens in the United States. The student movement probed the meaning of freedom in the United States. The anti-Vietnam War movement asked Americans to consider the use of national power and the appropriateness of their government’s foreign policy. Environmentalists asked what good America’s economic growth was if it resulted in the destruction of the planet.”

Don’t you feel it?

I mean something wonderful is about to happen in this country!

I feel like I am back in the 1960’s when lots of things were fought for.

Let’s take a look at the ‘Protests in the 1960’s:”

These developments incorporate the civil right’s movement, the student movement, the counter Vietnam War development, the women’s movement, the gay rights movement, and the environment movement. Each, to shifting degrees, changed government approach and, maybe more vitally, changed how practically every American lives today.

Supporters of these developments addressed customary practices about how individuals were dealt with. Why did high contrast youngsters go to separate schools? Why were ladies kept from holding certain employments? Why could a man be drafted at 18 yet not ready to vote until 21? This scrutinizing propelled individuals to start sorting out developments to battle against treachery and for equivalent rights for all individuals.

What’s more, they didn’t utilize conventional techniques for political action. Rather than voting in favor of a political hopeful and afterward trusting that the chose authority would make great strategies, these nonconformists had confidence in a more straightforward majority rule government. They made direct move—open walks, picketing, sit-ins, energizes, appeal to drives, and protests—to win proselytes to their causes and change open strategies at the neighborhood, state, and government levels. They contributed their time, vitality, and enthusiasm with the trust of improving an, all the more only society for all.

Environmental Movement

Americans’ worry about the indigenous habitat has a long history, yet just in the late 1960s when such a variety of Americans had turned out to be politically dynamic did a mass development rise that concentrated on ensuring the earth. Scientist Rachel Carson added to this enlivening with her top of the line book, Silent Spring (1962). She point by point the utilization of concoction bug sprays that slaughtered winged creatures, fish, and creatures and jeopardized the human species. Many different books took after Carson’s, cautioning of approaching natural debacles. Broadcast scope of natural debacles, similar to the 1969 oil slick off the shore of southern California, promote spread the caution. In the late 1960s, natural activists utilized this data to enroll an as of now politicized citizenry in another mass development.

In 1970 somewhere in the range of 20 million Americans accumulated for what coordinators called Earth Day to challenge mishandle of nature. Getting a strategy from the counter Vietnam War development, understudies and educators at more than 1500 schools and colleges and at more than 10,000 schools held protests on the earth. A huge number of different Americans arranged challenges and mobilizes around the country. In another unmistakable indication of another ecological cognizance, a great many residents joined natural gatherings like the Audubon Society, whose participation developed from 41,000 in 1962 to 400,000 in 1980.

In light of developing subject dissents, Congress passed the National Environmental Act in 1970. The demonstration made the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to control ecological wellbeing perils and the utilization of normal assets. By and large, in the 1970s Congress passed 18 new laws to secure the regular habitat, including the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act, which set up national air-and water-quality norms. At both a nearby and a national level, subjects united to preserve regular assets, utilize and create elective, cleaner types of vitality, request strict control of poisons, and advance a general familiarity with the interconnectedness and interdependency of all life. By the late 1970s, a significant part of the ecological development’s motivation had entered standard governmental issues.


Lots happened because people did not give up and made things happen.  I feel like I am back in the 1960’s when movements meant something.  I was only seven (7) yeas of age, but I can remember us watching all this happening on the television and we had to write about what we thought when in school about the 1960’s.

A greater part of Americans objected to each of these social change developments when they rose. The activists’ dependence on challenge strategies that disturbed the same old thing maddened many, as did their requests that Americans change their long-standing convictions and practices. In the 1960s, the social liberties development, the understudy development, and the antiwar development confronted genuine provocation and even abuse by nearby police constrains, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and other government organizations. The understudy development, the counter Vietnam War development, and the gay rights development never prevailing with regards to winning the endorsement of a dominant part of Americans, in any event as measured by popular assessment surveys and reviews. After some time, notwithstanding, the social liberties development, the ecological development, and, all the more disputably, the ladies’ development, converted a lion’s share of Americans to large portions of their perspectives.

The greater part of the challenge developments of the 1960s caught open consideration and brought up issues that were critical to the country. The social equality development, the ladies’ development, and the gay rights development requested that Americans consider uniformity for all subjects in the United States. The understudy development examined the importance of opportunity in the United States. The counter Vietnam War development solicited Americans to consider the utilization from national power and the propriety of their administration’s outside approach. Preservationists asked what great America’s monetary development was whether it brought about the obliteration of the planet.

In a frequently angry way, development activists asked troublesome inquiries that numerous Americans would rather have disregarded. In noting these inquiries, Americans changed drastically. Parallel open door and equivalent rights turned into the tradition that must be adhered to for American natives paying little respect to their race, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. The smoke screen that encompassed quite a bit of American outside strategy was, at any rate halfway, expelled. The wellbeing of the country’s surroundings turned into a national need. Law based activism at the neighborhood and national levels and resident oversight of government authorities got to be acknowledged exercises.

Something wonderful is about to happen and I feel it and God is showing me in so many ways because He has had me and many activist working overtime!

History is being made as we speak.

Drinking Ourselves To Death

Enough fluoride in one tooth paste tube
to kill a small child
though we’re told that it “promotes healthy teeth
and gums” and is mild.
That’s why protesting doctors and dentists and scientists were put on blacklists.
Fluoride in reality it is only a by-product
of the production of aluminum and atomic warfare.
While men that could be bought in the field of science conduct
produced tests of their sold imaginations,
to whom Uncle Sam pays his buck
to keep their mouths shut
and to poison the useless eaters
who are out of luck…
Distant memories of elementary school days,
small white cups, filled with bubble-gum taste.
Gargle and spit don’t swallow- it’s the next dental craze.
The fluoridation of our water
puts “the people” in a haze.
First introduced to Jews in the Holocaust
and when you have realized that you will know
it is our humanity in government we have lost.
Why is it we Americans trust blindly in our leaders?
When everything hits the fan
who will be under big brother’s finger?
Will you let your mind be open
and let the truth-seekers opinion linger
long enough to do homework of our own?
Only God can help you with this.
Or will you choose to join the thoughtless majority?
Join the countless millions who never question what they see.
By going along to get along, we have allowed a great tragedy!

God Shapes the World by Valerie Cheers Brown

God shapes the world by prayer. The more prayer there is in the world the better the world will be, the mightier the forces of against evil… 

We have a challenging situation to deal with. We have been given the notices.

Will we focus?

I think that we should.

The world acts like they don’t know a lot, but it is we who don’t ask a lot and the choices we make are detrimental to the children’s  future right now.

God will make a way but it is up to us to make the difference now and we are the change He is waiting on and He will lead us in the right direction.

Are we even paying attention are or we being misdirected and focusing on false idols like the flesh?  God is a jealous God.

Thirty-three hundred years prior in Deuteronomy 30:19, Moses said, “This day I call the sky and the earth as observers against you that I have set before you life and passing, endowments and condemnations.

Presently pick life, so that you and your kids may live.” As you see, the issue of radiation and EMF’s goes path past an atomic disaster in Japan.

We are encompassed by ionizing radiation and EMF brought on radiation in a way that is effectively supporting the Culture of Death.

In these exceptionally extraordinary times, it would be imperative to take a big look at our ways of life to perceive how we can change our ways of life to minimize our radiation and EMF introduction.

What ends up being a mechanical accommodation may end up being a more genuine burden of extensive pain, disability and even passing.

I would ask you to pick life.

In view of research of the post-Chernobyl investigations of peri-natal mortality and general mortality, the expansion in the U.S. in these two measurements grew dim around 3 months after the Chernobyl emergency, which, in the Japan emergencies, would be roughly the period amongst now and the end of June as the most imperative time to take after the suggested convention.

In survey, some straightforward things to do would be to pick life and pay attention what goes on around us at all times: Watch what God does when we pay attention!

Mineralize well for over exposure of radiation  emergencies with natural, plant-source-just eating regimen, which actually alkalizes the body and is low on the evolved way of life. Also, cover your garden from the environment and greenhouses would be so much safer!

May we as a whole be protected from future mischances by focusing on the notices of God to give it full consideration so we will ban all potential radiation causes and continue with incredible care in radiation demonstrative testing, which is presently abused.

May we understand that we are in a period of changes that require activity on the physical plane and activity on the profound plane to enhance the quality and importance of our lives with the goal that we may move from the Culture of Death into the Culture of Life and Liberation in each part of our lives. Favors to your wellbeing.
