The Bronx Household of Faith is an inner-city New York City church that sought to rent a public school building on Sundays to hold its weekly worship service but had its request rejected by the New York City Board of Education.
There is compelling evidence that over the past 100 years the populations of industrialized countries have drifted away from the somatic heritage of their forbearers. We have adopted postural habits which are dramatically different from those used historically and still found in non-industrialized peoples today. Modern “adaptations”, such as tucking the pelvis and S-shaping the spine have had detrimental effects on the biomechanics of our gait and structure, generating an epidemic of foot, knee and back problems. Restoration of healthy and sustainable functioning requires a return to natural alignment, our Primal Architecture. The Gokhale Method is a systematic and effective program for attaining this.
Esther Gokhale (Go-clay) has been involved in integrative therapies all her life. As a young girl growing up in India, she helped her mother, a nurse, treat abandoned babies waiting to be adopted. This early interest in healing led her to study biochemistry at Harvard and Princeton and, later, acupuncture at the San Francisco School of Oriental Medicine where she became a licensed acupuncturist.
After experiencing crippling back pain during her first pregnancy and unsuccessful back surgery, Gokhale began her lifelong crusade to vanquish back pain. Her studies at the Aplomb Institute in Paris and years of research in Brazil, India, Portugal and elsewhere led her to develop the Gokhale Method®, a unique, systematic approach to help people find their bodies’ way back to pain-free living.
Gokhale has practiced acupuncture and taught posture, dance and yoga in her Palo Alto wellness center for over twenty years. Her Gokhale Method Foundations course is now taught by qualified teachers all over the world. Their offerings, her book, 8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back, DVD, posture-friendly cushion, and chair are all available on her website at gokhalemethod.com. In May 2013, The New York Times featured Esther in an article giving her the title, “The Posture Guru of Silicon Valley”.
Gokhale has been a speaker/teacher at corporations such as Google, IDEO, and Mimosa Systems and conferences including TEDx(Stanford), Ancestral Health Symposium, Western Price Foundation Conference, and PrimalCon. She also speaks with medical physician groups including Stanford, PAMF, UCSF and sports teams such as the trainers of the SF 49ers and several Stanford teams. Her method has been featured in publications including The San Francisco Chronicle, Toronto Sun, Chicago- Sun Times, Prevention Magazine, and AAOS.
U.S. National Guardsman plotted military attack on Illinois armory in name of ISIS
Posted on March 29, 2015 by Dr. Eowyn
Foxes are guarding the hen house in Obama’s America. Four days ago, on March 25, 2015, an Illinois National Guardsman and his cousin were arrested for planning a mass terror attack on a military facility in Joliet, Illinois.
The Chicago Tribune reports, March 27, 2015, that federal authorities say Hasan and Jonas Edmonds had been aspiring terrorists for months when they arrived at the Joliet Armory on Tuesday to scout out a brazen attack.
Hasan Edmonds, 22, a specialist with the Illinois National Guard who had trained at the Joliet Armory since 2011, talked with his cousin, 29-year-old Jonas Edmonds, and an accomplice about where the soldiers might be stationed inside, which rooms to avoid and the firepower that would be required, according to prosecutors. Hasan then went into the low brick building to pick up a military training schedule for Jonas, who was going to carry out the attack later wearing his cousin’s uniform and carrying AK-47s and grenades.
If all had gone according to plan, the body count could reach 150.
Soon after Medicare started, the government was collecting billions. Congress saw a great opportunity and took it. They broke open all those lockboxes, took the cash, put it in the General Account, and replaced your money with government-issued I.O.U.s. The government is good for it, right? Anyway, what’s the difference?
There are two huge differences. First, hard cash can be invested and grow: I.O.U.s cannot and do not. Second, your Medicare savings were supposed to be spent on your personal medical expenses. In the General Account, Congress could spend that money on any pork project, for political payback, or whatever crony capitalism scheme they liked. In short, the money Medicare needs to pay for your care isn’t there, by Congressional action.
Ted Cruz made me cry
By Lloyd Marcus
At Liberty University, Sen Ted Cruz officially threw his hat into the ring as a contender for president in 2016. Cruz’s speech brought tears to my eyes. It was inspiring, boldly Christian, and unapologetically conservative – vowing to stand for liberty.
Cruz touting the greatness of our legacy as Americans gave me the same goosebumps I felt as a young voter hearing the same pride, optimism, and high expectations from Ronald Reagan.
But folks, we have heard it all before: promises to repeal Obamacare, to stop Obama’s illegal amnesty for illegals and all of Obama’s other assaults on our freedoms and trashing of our Constitution. The GOP has tricked us before. We conservatives are fed up, tired of being used and abused, suffering Battered Conservative Syndrome.
Cruz said everything we conservatives have been longing to hear. As I have stated numerous times, it always comes back to character. Can we trust Cruz to follow through on his campaign promises when we get him elected?
In our tour bus, I met Ted Cruz and hung out with his awesome dad, Rafael, at a Tea Party rally in Texas.
This is not a formal endorsement, but Ted Cruz is a man of character. I believe we can trust him.
In an interview about persecution of Christians in the Middle East and restrictions on religious freedom in the United States, evangelical preacher Franklin Graham said America faces radically different issues than those that confronted his father, Billy Graham, and stressed that “we’re losing our country,” that “the foundations of this country are collapsing and falling apart.”
Within the first couple of months of Obama’s illegal immigration executive action, at least ninety thousand Social Security cards were issued to illegal aliens.

The first response to these stats and to these profiles should be intense sympathy. We now have multiple generations of people caught in recurring feedback loops of economic stress and family breakdown, often leading to something approaching an anarchy of the intimate life.
But it’s increasingly clear that sympathy is not enough. It’s not only money and better policy that are missing in these circles; it’s norms. The health of society is primarily determined by the habits and virtues of its citizens. In many parts of America there are no minimally agreed upon standards for what it means to be a father. There are no basic codes and rules woven into daily life, which people can absorb unconsciously and follow automatically.
Reintroducing norms will require, first, a moral vocabulary. These norms weren’t destroyed because of people with bad values. They were destroyed by a plague of nonjudgmentalism, which refused to assert that one way of behaving was better than another. People got out of the habit of setting standards or understanding how they were set.
Next it will require holding people responsible. People born into the most chaotic situations can still be asked the same questions: Are you living for short-term pleasure or long-term good? Are you living for yourself or for your children? Do you have the freedom of self-control or are you in bondage to your desires?
One of the key arguments made by constitutional nationalists is that the Constitution provides that “We the People of the United States . . . do ordain and establish this Constitution.” The idea is that a single people throughout the country as a whole established the Constitution and therefore sovereignty resides at the national level in that people.
Moreover, this national sovereignty negates any inferences that might otherwise follow from the idea that the Constitution consists of a compact of states. While this is certainly one interpretation of this language, it is certainly not the only one. And here I want to suggest an intermediate understanding – one that is in between national and states rights sovereignty.
