September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

The De-Moralization of the West by Hollywood’s Culture Machine

You thought it could never happen here. Well, you’re wrong…

The west faces the extraordinary situation today whereby, even though the communist iron curtain fell in 1989-1992, Marxist-Communist operatives at all levels of society in the west – have continued their ideological drive (and in many cases passed the torch over generations) to disrupt and de-moralise… western politics, economics, society and culture.

Hollywood plays a central role in not only feeding talking points and concepts, but also by lowering the moral bar – lowering moral standards, by constantly targeting ever younger audiences with gratuitous sex and violence, and even subliminal imagery. In this kind of social environment, the populace is rendered unable to make informed decisions in their local, or national interests.

According to a high level Soviet defector, Yuri Alexandrovich Bezmenov, who granted this interview in the mid 80′s, operations against the west were less about intelligence gathering and more to do with what is known as ‘ideological subversion’ and ‘active measures’ – programs designed over 15 to 20 year period in order to subvert moral foundations by targeting students and the educational systems. The operations “change from within” using “agents of change”, and ultimately to change people’s behaviours – a practice now used openly by western governments, known as Applied Behavioral Psychology. 

We’ve now reached a unique crossroads where countries like Russia and China are moving away from Marxism and are in the process of opening up, while the West is in the process of constricting its social charters and bill of rights. All this is happening and most people are completely unaware of it.

All this, disguised under political banners like ‘redistribution of wealth’, ‘social justice’ and ‘equality’.

“Marxist-Leninism ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least three generations of American students without being challenged, or counter balanced by the basic values of Americanism.”

PG-13 movies match R rating for violence, study says
Brady Dennis
Washington Post

The prevalence of gun violence in top PG-13 movies has more than tripled since the rating was introduced in the mid-1980s, and last year it eclipsed even the amount in R-rated movies, according to findings to be published Monday in the journal Pediatrics.

“I think most parents would be surprised to learn that,” said Brad Bushman, a professor of communication and psychology at Ohio State University and one of the study’s authors. “We were pretty shocked.”

The authors said their findings are particularly troubling given considerable research into what has been called the “weapons effect,” which suggests that depiction of gun violence in media could lead to more aggressive behavior in the real world.

“We know that movies teach children how adults behave, and they make gun use appear exciting and attractive,” said Dan Romer, another co-author and the director of theAdolescent Communication Instituteof the Annenberg Public Policy Center in Pennsylvania.

To determine how violence — and specifically gun violence — has changed in films over time, researchers chose 945 films sampled from the 30 top-grossing releases each year from 1950 to 2012. Coders sifted through the movies, noting violent sequences.

Researchers said they excluded violence not intended to harm anyone, such as accidents and run-of-the-mill sports aggression. They also excluded activities such as hunting and the use of large-scale weapons such as rocket-propelled grenades and military artillery.

In the end, they found that violence in films had more than doubled since 1950, and that violence had tripled in PG-13 films over the past quarter-century. In addition, while PG-13 movies initially had only about as much violence as G- and PG-rated films, since 2009 they have contained as much violence as R-rated films, or more.

Romer said even though some of the most popular PG-13 films in recent years, such as “The Hunger Games,” “The Dark Knight Rises” and “Snow White and the Huntsman,” are based on comic-book heroes or other fantasy characters, “these films have a lot of violence in them."

“We think that the PG-13 rating is no longer very helpful,” he said. “If they’re going to allow content like that in PG-13 movies . . . it sort of goes against the grain of how they define the difference” compared with an R-rated movie, he added.

The PG-13 rating, introduced in 1984 after an uproar over violence in “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom,” indicates that parents should be “strongly cautioned” that some material may not be appropriate for children not yet teenagers. The R rating means anyone under 17 must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian.

According to the Motion Picture Association of America’s rating system, “there may be depictions of violence in a PG-13 movie, but generally not both realistic and extreme or persistent violence.” By comparison, an R-rated movie could contain “intense or persistent violence.”

An MPAA spokeswoman declined to comment on Monday’s study but referred to information about how the group determines ratings at the Web site FilmRatings.com. The site says that while the ratings are meant to help guide parents about a movie’s content, “it’s ultimately up to you to decide whether a movie is suitable for your family.”

The findings in Monday’s study, the authors write, are “troubling given the large body of research evidence showing that violent media can have harmful effects on children and youth.”

While many scholars agree with that conclusion, others have questioned the link between media violence and real-world violence. Christopher J. Ferguson, chairman of the psychology department at Stetson University, has written that the weight of evidence so far does not merit drawing hard conclusions. “If you are curious whether media violence contributes to violent crime,” Ferguson wrote in 2009, “the simple answer to that is we really don’t know.”

Meanwhile, two California economists, Gordon Dahl and Stefano DellaVigna, found in 2008 that attendance at violent movies actually reduced violent crime in the short term, possibly because they were keeping some at-risk individuals out of bars and off the streets for several hours. But both men said in e-mails that deciphering the long-term effects of media violence is trickier.

Monday’s study “does a good job showing that gun use has increased over time in movies, especially in PG-13 movies,” Dahl said. “But the more important question is whether repeated exposure to media violence increases violent behavior in the long run. This is a difficult question to answer, and not one that I’ve seen a convincing answer to.”

Romer and Bushman emphasized that their findings are not intended to pin violent behavior in young people on increased violence at the movies. But they said the MPAA should at least reevaluate how it rates films with growing amounts of guns and gore.

“I’m not a policymaker. I don’t really care what adults see,” Bushman said. “What I do care about is children exposed to age-inappropriate media. . . . Maybe films that contain excessive gun violence should have an R rating.”

Added Romer: “We think that’s pretty reasonable.”
