Hillbilly clans put 'yee-haw' in Shrine work
At most conventions, delegates try to book at least a little time to let their hair down. At this one, a gathering of Hillbillies in London, there's serious business -- but tearing loose is almost a line item on the agenda. Hundreds of Shriners from across North America are in London for a three-day convention of the Hillbilly clans, a sub-group of the international fraternity known for its network of children's hospitals across the continent. And while they've buckled down for a bit of official Shriners business, this band is bringing a taste of backwoods fun to the Forest City.
A spry senior who leads the oldest of the Hillbilly clans in the fraternity said a good time is not unknown to his mates. "Some of the Shriners units are a little more uptight, but us Hillbillies like to let our hair down," Tommy Leake of Ashland, Ky., said at the hotel holding the convention. He wore a floppy black hat with the word Hillbilly studded in rhinestones. Clad in frayed coveralls and sporting caps, the Hillbillies have been tearing up the town since they arrived Wednesday. On their official agenda, the gang and their wives -- known as "Hillbilly mamas" -- have taken in a brewery tour, sightseeing from a double-decker bus and lots of socializing.
Today, delegates to the convention hosted by London Hillbillies will showcase their spirit in a downtown parade featuring jalopies, floats and the trumpet band from the Mocha Shrine Temple, home to the London Shriners. "We do get a lot of people laughing at us, but we like putting smiles on peoples' faces," said Kentucky Hillbilly Hank Wilkes, who donned patch-covered overalls and a decorated hat. "We're a bunch of fun-loving country boys."
But Ron Cripps, who leads the local Hillbilly Shriners, said the clans' quirky costumes can be deceiving. While their costumes may make the Hillbillies look like a bunch of bedraggled country bumpkins, they've raised more than $7 million for hospitals across North America, he said. "You wouldn't know it to look at us, but we're serious about raising money for the hospitals," he said. "We have a lot of fun, but we get the job done." The Hillbilly parade starts today at 2 p.m. at Catholic Central high school at Dundas and Colborne streets.
So a Hillbilly Shriner parade full of "...fun-loving country boys..." kicking off @ a Catholic HIGH SCHOOL, in order to raise money for sick kids, that NEED to be medicated, is MOST NOBLE indeed.
Peterborough Masons donating blood and playground equipment? WTF!?! Those two are conjoined at the hip
The Shriners’ Oath reads in part:
In willful violation whereof may I incur the fearful penalty of having my eyeballs pierced to the center with a three-edged blade, my feet flayed and I be forced to walk the hot sands upon the sterile shores of the Red Sea until the flaming sun shall strike me with a livid plague, and may Allah, the god of Arab Moslem, and MOHAMMEDAN, THE GOD OF OUR FATHERS, support me to the entire fulfillment of the same. Amen. Amen. Amen.
There gods, lets not forget, only 1 of 3, BAAL !!!...Not only does a Shriner have the 3 evil gods, now he has another !!! You can NOT be a shriner without being a mason.NOW, these ones have 4 !!!
VALDOSTA — VALDOSTA — With ponytails swinging and hips swaying, the pint-size 5-year-old in green butterfly sunglasses and St. Pat’s Day shirt enjoys a game of hula hoops on the Wii. But the game is more than just fun for Alexis Paterson: It’s helping her with her balance following surgery to correct her clubfoot.
Thanks to the generosity of Shriners, including those of the Valdosta Shrine Club, surgery was performed about 1 1/2 years ago at the Shriners Hospital in Tampa, Fla., to straighten her foot so she could walk flat instead of on the side of her foot.
Members of the Valdosta Shrine Club, a part of the Hasan Shrine in Albany, are at the Valdosta-Lowndes County Azalea City Festival today collecting money so that other children with orthopedic problems like “Lexie” and those with burns can get life-changing and, in many cases, life-saving medical help.
“Every penny will go will go to the Shriners Hospitals,” said Alan Davis, a director of the Valdosta Shriner Club.
Those with children 18 and under needing help may call Valdosta Shrine Club President Keith Stewart at 251-0339 or Shrine Hospitals at 1-800-237-5055.
Lexie’s problem was discovered when her mom, Amanda Paterson, was five months pregnant, carrying Lexie and her twin brother, Ayden. (The twins have an older sister, Alley, 7.) The twins’ dad, Anthony, and their mom were both in the Navy, stationed at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station, Oak Harbor, Wash.
Anthony, who had a cleft palate, wanted to learn if his twins also had the birth defect. Instead, the physician discovered Lexie had positional club foot, which meant she didn’t have enough room in the womb for her foot to grow properly.
“When she was born, the side of her foot touched her inner ankle,” Amanda said in an interview Wednesday afternoon at the home of her husband’s parents, Patty and Chris Knupp, near Clyattville, where they now live until she and Anthony finish their schooling at Valdosta State University, she in psychology and Anthony in pre-electrical engineering.
The twins were delivered prematurely at 34 weeks on Sept. 28, 2004. Amanda had been airlifted to the University of Washington in Seattle for their births. A physician from Seattle Children’s Hospital came over to check Lexie. When she was released from the hospital at 1 week old, she was referred to a physician at Seattle Children’s Hospital, who started the Ponseti treatment, a method of stretching the foot and casting it to the groin at an almost 90 degree angle until it is in the proper position.
Amanda said a new cast was put on every week.
“She was 4 pounds, 11 ounces at birth, and the cast weighed half as much as she did. The doctor would manipulate the foot as far as he could to get it to go in the proper position. The cast was almost to her diaper line, and the leg was bent and the foot turned out.”
Lexie handled the manipulations like a trooper.
“Even at a week old, they said Lexie was the quietest baby they ever had.”
Lexie’s first surgery was heel cord lengthening.
“When we arrived in Valdosta (when the twins were 6 months old), the orthopedic surgeon called it a perfect correction,” Amanda said. “Her feet were flat at that point.
But it didn’t last.
“At 1 year old, she could stand, take a step and trip,” Amanda said. “Her foot began turning back to where it had begun. They started talking surgery, and I got scared.”
Anthony’s great-aunt, Doris VanArsdale, and her husband, the late Roy VanArsdale, a Shriner, of South Bend, Ind., told them to contact the Shriners.
The Patersons got an application off the Internet for an appointment with the Shriners Hospital in Tampa. Physicians there said Lexie was too young for the surgery that was being suggested in Valdosta.
“They let Lexie do everything in her time.”
Shriners physicians did the Ponseti procedure.
“They always made her comfortable where she wouldn’t mind the procedure,” Amanda said.
“Almost two years ago, she had the full-blown surgery to do a tendon transfer to make her foot balanced. Then they did the second heel cord lengthening. They have a program where they have dolls to show them this is where the IV will go and what they were going to do.
“(After surgery) they encourage them to get up and get dressed and eat in the cafeteria and interact with the other patients, which I think speeds up recovery. They made sure her pain was manageable.”
After eight weeks in a cast, it was removed.
“Every since then, she’s running; she’s learned how to jump,” Amanda said of her child, now in pre-K at Clyattville Elementary. “Her foot will always look different, but she’s back to a functional state. She is pretty much where her brother is.
“Kristi Yamaguchi was born with a clubfoot. If she could be an Olympic medal ice skater, then Lexie can do anything. The sky’s the limit.”
Lexie’s family did not have to bear the burden of the medical treatment and surgery at Shriners Hospital.
“There’s been no cost to our family at all,” Amanda said. “It’s been a godsend.
“If there is a family that can’t drive there (to Tampa), the Shriners will take them there,” she added.
“I really want the community to understand what the Shriners do. They’re not just men who wear funny hats. It’s men who give their lives to give children an opportunity in life. They’ll give anything for the children. You can’t thank someone enough ...”
Quoted from, "The Angels of Armageddon": Both the U.S. Government, and the cult organization of the Freemasons, are equally subject to inspection. The Masons have their symbols and belief structures embedded in our Government itself. This is just one of many inspirations for such speculations. Their secret language and ancient symbols are visible throughout structures in Washington, the states themselves, and most currency from the United States of America. The signs of their involvement are in countless other significant structures situated around the world.

FOR THE RECORDER
The Fresno Tehran Shriners held a free clinic Saturday at Sierra View District Hospital. The clinic, which ran from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., was held to evaluate and sign-up eligible children for treatment at the Shriners Hospital in Sacramento.
“We support 22 hospitals throughout the united states, Canada and Mexico, which admit children free of charge, for any child under 18 years old, for certain orthopedic, bones, multiple sclerosis, and other cosmetic surgery,” said Thomas Crosno, recorder for the Fresno Shriners Tehran Temple. “Any child that we feel we can help under 18 years old, regardless of income, the Shriners will help that child.”
One such child, Ginelle Hernandez, age 3, was at the clinic with her mother, Sandra Andrade. Andrade spoke of her difficulties with finding treatment for her daughter, who suffers from crooked knees.
“I brought her here because I took her to the clinic, and they weren’t able to help me the way the Shriners have,” Andrade said. “I’ve been waiting for four months and I still can’t get my referral. So to me it’s very helpful.”
A total of 15 children and their parents showed up to Saturday’s clinic, 12 of whom arrived before noon. All of the children who were evaluated were approved for treatment at the hospital. Refreshments, including coffee, juice, and cookies, were provided for the parents and children while they waited, and Beep the Clown, of the Shriners clown unit, kept the kids all smiling with balloon animals and stickers.
“We had a good turnout today,” he said, his smile matching the one painted on his face. “We come to this clinic in Porterville every year. We’ve made some balloons for the kids and took their pictures and gave out stickers and just had a good time.”
Crosno said that he hopes that more parents will turn out for next year’s clinic. On getting parents to come forward, he said “Yes, that’s the biggest problem we have, having people come forward and let us know they have a problem. It’s not charity, it’s what the Shriners do, and it’s what we want to do.”
Saturday’s event was the last free Shriners clinic of the year. There will be roughly six or seven more next year, including another clinic in Porterville. For more information about the Shriners clinics and hospitals,call the Tehran Temple in Fresno at 559-251-1991.
“They can do wonderful things. I’m glad they do this for the community, and it’s wonderful the Shriners can help us,” Andrade said, watching her daughter play with the balloon animal she’d been given. “I’m thankful for them.”
NEW YORK, May 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On May 11, just before
Mother's Day weekend, ten mothers, one victimized child, now an adult, and
leading national organizations and state organizations filed a complaint
against the United States with the Inter American Commission on Human
Rights. The case claims that U.S. courts, by frequently awarding child
custody to abusers and child molesters, has failed to protect the life,
liberties, security and other human rights of abused mothers and their
"For more than 30 years U.S. judges(freemason) have given custody or unsupervised
visitation of children to abusers and molesters putting the children
directly at risk," says Dianne Post, an international attorney who authored
the petition. "These horrendous human rights violations have been brought
to the attention of family court systems, and state and federal
governments, to no avail. We turn now to international courts to protect
the rights and safety of US children."
Like many other boys who grew up in the Pacific Northwest in the early 1980s, Tom and Matt Stewart shared a rugged childhood of hikes, campouts and fishing trips, most of it thanks to the Boy Scouts of America. It was a program that kept the brothers involved in their Federal Way troop all the way to Eagle Scout. Years later, Tom became a Scoutmaster for his own sons.
But as they became adults and moved a thousand miles apart, each privately struggled with memories of Scouting that neither wanted to talk about: the sexual abuse they suffered at the hands of their Scoutmaster, Bruce Phelps. Matt Stewart would grow queasy at the sight of young Scouts in uniform. Tom Stewart suffered nightmares of fighting off Phelps' advances. Finally, after decades of silence, the Stewart brothers grew convinced they weren't alone. In 2003, they sued the Boy Scouts and their former Scoutmaster and won an out-of-court settlement.
Four years later, the case has become a landmark in the 97-year history of the Boy Scouts, and the brothers spokesmen for a much larger issue. For the first time, the Boy Scouts of America has been forced to turn over, to the Stewarts' attorneys, its entire archive on sexually abusive Scout leaders. The previously private records show the Boy Scouts have ejected at least 5,100 adult leaders nationwide for sexual abuse allegations since 1946
The abuse, including oral and anal sex, persisted all the way through high school, the brothers say: at Scout outings and camps, at a drive-in movie theater, at Phelps' house in West Seattle, and even in the Stewarts' own basement while their parents were upstairs. Their parents let them spend entire weekends at Phelps' house on the pretext of working on merit badges, even after Phelps had grown up and moved to West Seattle, where he led another Scout troop. "He would say, 'OK, that knot looks fine; you got your merit badge — now let's have sex,' " said Matt.
I do however have a ludicrous list of people in daycares, youth organizations & churches being brought to justice. Masonic doctors, lawyers, cops & judges are steady makin' news as pedophiles.
Satanism is "Do what thou wilst". One perversion after another, seeing as there's absolutely no gratitude for the gifts of life in so many forms. "Do what thou wilst" means go ahead and cannabalize children. Capitalistic war-mongers are defiling the VERY SUSTENANCE of life.
Some think the released documents on Boy Scouts is boring, but that set of papers is but a drop of the overall flood of "Do what thou whilst" perpetrators.

Town Is Shaken After Prosecutor’s Arrest in a Child-Sex Sting
By ABBY GOODNOUGH
Mr. Atchison, 53, was arrested getting off a plane in Detroit on Sept. 16 and charged with the unthinkable. The authorities there said he was carrying a doll and petroleum jelly, and that he had arranged with an undercover agent to have sex with a 5-year-old girl
Baphomet kabalistically sets forth the aims of the Illuminati. The word is an acronym for the title "Templi Omnium Hominem Pacis Abbas", or "Father of the Temple of Universal Peace", reversed. Thus "Tem O.H.P. Ab" becomes bAPHOmeT.

He's been a social worker, a Big Brother, a scout leader -- and now he's accused in an international child porn investigation.
But one thing Norman Blain isn't is chatty. "I have no comment for the press," Blain said yesterday from his Brampton residence, where he's been on home assignment from his Peel District School Board job since getting bail Jan. 11. "He continues to be paid pending the outcome of the investigation," board spokesman Brian Woodland said of the long-time school social worker

Beardstown police officer and wife face sex charges
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Friday, Jan. 18 2008
VIRGINIA, Ill. — A six-year veteran of the Beardstown, Ill., Police Department and his wife face multiple charges alleging predatory criminal sexual assault on a child. Shane A. Lisenbee was charged Wednesday in Cass County Circuit Court with four counts of predatory criminal sexual assault on a child. His wife, Stephanie, was also arrested at the Cass County Courthouse on a warrant alleging two counts of predatory criminal sexual assault on a child. The charges allege Shane Lisenbee, 32, committed sexual acts, including sexual intercourse, with a girl and committed a sexual act with a boy, both of whom were younger than age 13. Stephanie Lisenbee is accused of having sexual intercourse with the boy. Beardstown is about 113 miles north of St. Louis.
Former Boy Scouts leader Charles H. Seamans sat in a corner of Throop Town Court on Thursday, wearing an orange jump suit, his hands in cuffs attached to a chain at his waist, legs in shackles. "Sorry I can't give you a better handshake," he said, greeting a reporter. He was alone and, as he admitted later to the judge presiding at his preliminary hearing, scared. Cayuga County sheriff's investigators have charged Seamans, 46, with two counts of first-degree sexual abuse and two counts of second-degree sexual abuse. If convicted of first-degree abuse, Seamans faces as much as seven years in state prison. Seneca County investigators have charged him with first-degree criminal sexual act, a crime which carries a possible sentence of 25 years in prison. He was arrested Jan. 12 and is being held on $15,000 cash bail or $30,000 bond.
