Cindy Jacobs – False Prophecy for Australia 2001

Cindy Jacobs - False Prophecy for Australia 2001

Cindy Jacobs

Cindy Jacobs was invited by so called well to do preachers and ministers to come and speak on the 23rd May in South Africa at the  Global Day of Prayer. Why she was invited I have no idea because Cindy Jacobs is part of the New Apostolic Movement and a false prophetess.  Oh wait, so are the organisers of the GDOP.

She prophesied that Zimbabwe would be the breadbasket of Africa – that was over 10 years ago.

When Cindy Jacobs was invited to Australia in 2001 she prophesied the following:

1. Australia is going to be a first fruits nation, an apostolic nation – a sending out nation.  [DTW note:  A first fruits nation?  That’s quite bad for Australia, because it means no matter what happens they will have to be the first ones to cough up the bucks first time, every-time for eternity.]

2. God is releasing the Anzac Light Horseman anointing, especially upon the young people to take down the strongholds, and the Joshua anointing (great courage, determination, persistence ) to take the land.   [DTW note : The Anzac Light Horseman anointing?  I give you permission to laugh out LOUD.]

3. Australia will send out the greatest number of missionaries per capita.   [DTW note:  Maybe she meant Hillsong releases.]

4. Australia will be a nation that will help transform other nations (because despite what others have said Australia is not an “ugly ducking” but a “swan” nation). [DTW note:  Sounds like the Zimbabwe prophecy. She said Zim would transform Africa, that Zim would become the Switzerland of Africa (without the snow).]

5. Evangelism. The various ethnic groups in Australia are not here by chance but by God’s appointment. They will go back to their own countries with the Word of God to evangelise. This is especially so of the Asian people. Many Australians will go too.   [DTW note:  Yeah, right.  Maybe Cindy needs to leave and not come back].

6. Australia will release much wealth to the nations. God is raising up “apostles to business” for this nation. The super rich will be born again. God is going to use the giving of this nation and the structure of “apostles to business” as a model for others.    [DTW note:  So here we have the Prosperity gospel shining through; where only the SUPER RICH will be born again.  If you are poor and live in Australia you will stay poor and remain unsaved.  Notice the ‘Redistribution of Wealth’ talk here that fits perfectly with the United Nations agenda on Global Warming and the transfer of wealth from richer countries to poorer countries.]

7. Australia has a specific anointing as a reconciling nation.   [DTW note: A Reconciling anointing?  These guys have an anointing for EVERYTHING.  Except for false teaching.  So I will henceforth bestow on Cindy Jacobs the ‘False Teaching anointing’]

8. Australia will be a nation walking in holiness. The holiness movement is going to hit this land – purity, righteousness, set apart for God. This is especially going to hit the young people. A counter revolution of holiness and a counter culture.    [DTW note:  An entire nation walking in holiness?  That will be the day.  Delusions of grandeur, yes, if anyone falls for this rubbish.]

9. We are a merry heart nation with a great sense of humor and able to laugh at ourselves.  [DTW note:  I hope they are laughing at this prophecy and not taking it seriously.]

10. A great healing of the Vietnam Veterans is coming, and a healing of the soul of this nation concerning Vietnam.  [DTW note:  Is she saying that Vietnam Veterams are going to be healed? Many of them are limbless.  Are their limbs going to suddenly grow back?]

11. Prayer and healing rooms will be opened across this nation.   [DTW note:  This prophecy was spoken awhile ago and nothing of the sort has happened.]

12. There will be 24 hour churches – prayer chapels at churches, universities and schools.  This will start to shift things in the heavenlies, the lost will get saved 2.00/3.00am in the morning. [DTW note:  errrrr…. you kidding?  The lost will only be saved between 2 and 3am.  Nope, apparently she is not kidding.]


Well there you have it folks, another FALSE prophecy by Cindy Jacobs.

  • Jey

    Creepy – given the reality of Zimbabwe. I wish pple would wake up to these money spinners…

  • Donna

    Deb, This is the same old, same old. These false prophets are so overtaken w/ the demons of delusion that they have literally lost their own/true minds! Cindy J. came to PA USA) many years ago w/ similar prophecies for our area! HA!

    Your comments, tho were hilarious & had me laughing thruout the article. May some people who are her followers wake up before it’s too late & come out of this RELIGIOUS MATRIX!

  • elize

    She probably forgot the part about Australia getting an atheist Prime Minister? And the myriad of Eastern religion temples being built? And the fact that the majority of people who call themselves Christians here, are Catholic…. We just had a minister in a reformed church here, resign, because the management back in RSA asked him to tone down the sin preaching and up the “feel good message”. Oh and by the way, make the sermon shorter…like 15 minutes??? Well, he didn’t take kindly to that…

  • Macky

    seems like we need an Elijah or Jeremiah to expose these decievers.

  • light


    Friend, i don’t know how many men and women of God you have maligned in these past years. But have you noticed that non of them ever get to respond to your accusations? Trust me, you would to good to concentrate on your God given assignment because your reward is in that. Preach the gospel and if your gospel is the real one, God will draw many to listern to you. Read your bible carefully and never concentrate on the specks in God’s children’s eyes. Be careful, lest you decieve many and lead many astray.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)


    Cindy can come here and respond. Send her an email please!!! Let her come. Let her give scripture for her each and every false prophecy and then I will give mine.

  • really?

    I notice you did not take one comment of Jacobs and test it–including identifying the basis of your test. Or did I miss a Biblical injuction to make sarcastic response to any prophetic word? How does such a response undergird a loyalty to Biblical truth and love?

  • Michael

    “Light”…it is impossible to be led astray when you take instruction directly from the scriptures with integrity and you are truly saved and not merely had an “experience”.Debs calls a spade a spade and this offends those who have hidden agenda’s…wof,unbalanced lunatics who have delusions of self-annointed glamour and those who twist and contaminate the word of God to suit their selfish worldly lusts and desires and those puffed up with religious self righteous pride
    If you honestly read her comments in the right context she does not malign the person but demonstrates against the false message and lies these self-appointed messengers of a false Christ and gospel expound. The purpose of this forum is to stand up for the Word in the right context and expose those who abuse it either willfully or ignorantly.Understanding the scriptures is not difficult for those with an honest heart and have a burden to die to their sinful self and change their old lifestyles and have been truly saved and obey the Lord Jesus Christ.Those who truly want the real Jesus as their Saviour are born again and become reconciated with God because they hate their sin and want it out of their life and have the unction caused by the Holy Spirit to be obedient to God.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)


    Tell you what. What don’t you test her for me and give me scripture ok?


  • david

    I am appalled by the level of criticism that is so apparent on this web site.
    While there is a place for constructive criticism of wolves in sheep’s clothing in the body of Christ, I see these uncharitable articles and comments very disturbing.
    Why, it appears that you have absolutely NOTHING posaitive to say about the many servants of God that you featured on this site. Even when writing about Cindy Jacobs, you could not point to ONE good thing she has done in the ministry, but to a prophecy she gave which is “false” (never mind none of you could prove that yet; the world has not ended; she did not attache a time to their fulfillment).
    Why not spend time instead praying for these “false prophets”, rather than allowing yourselves to be possessed by the spirit of superiority, doling out criticism after criticism, while doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to advance the Kingdom of Christ? It is always easy to play the Pharisee–sitting on the sidelines, binding up heavy burdens and not lifting one of them with a little finger.
    I am really concerned about your spiritual states. No, seriously. Anyone filled with the Holy Spirit of love will not write the way you people are writing on this site. It is a big shame indeed.
    You are the ones that must repent first, and get the beams out of your eyes, before you can see clearly to carefully and lovingly remove the speck out of someone else’s eyes.
    God bless,


  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    *bangs head on desk*

  • sylesa

    You truly need discernment. The refference you made to the scripture about binding heavy burdens is used of the false teachers of Christs day! They added to the scriptures! Also, God is Love, Jesus is God , and here is His attitude toward false teachers:

    He proclaims eight woes, against the hypocrisy of the scribes and Pharisees
    13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in. 14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation. 15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves. 16 Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor! 17 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold? 18 And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty. 19 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift? 20 Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon. 21 And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein. 22 And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon. 23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. 24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel. 25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. 26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also. 27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness. 28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. 29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, 30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. 31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. 32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. 33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

    David, God is LOVE , and yet, can you see his heart on false teachers? Here is more from the book of Jude:

    8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. 9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. 10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. 11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. 12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; 13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever. 14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,

    15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. 16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage. 17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; 18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. 19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. 20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, 21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. 22 And of some have compassion, making a difference: 23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. 24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, 25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

    Jude 1:8-25 (KJV)

    Here is more from 2 peter 2:

    1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.

    3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not. 4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly
    2 Peter 2:1-6 (KJV)

    David, are you getting the picture that doctrine is VERY important and that mens very eternal destiny hangs in the balance? If these false teachers had any “good” to be mentioned, the Lord didn’t seem to much focus on it did He? THEY ARE DESTROYING MENS SOULS!

    Are you in the charismatic movement David? Is that why you think this website is overly critical? Are you in defence of truth or in defence of what you may be involved in? Just wondering.

  • sylesa

    Also David, when this website starts calling the false teachers snakes, hypocrites,blind guides, filthy dreamers, spots , clouds without water, ect., ect., then notice that this IS the language of the scriptures!!!! But this site is more gracious because i have not seen anybody calling these false teachers what they really are!!

  • Burning Lamp

    David doesn’t consider Jacobs a wolf? We are supposed to give “constructive” criticism to a wolf? Like file down your teeth so you won’t be a threat to the sheep? A wolf is a wolf is a wolf and the worst part is they disguise themselves as sheep and mingle with the flock. They quote scripture but twist it to conform to their doctrine of demons.

    David prides himself with his tolerance – but I doubt very much if the Apostle Paul would be so tolerant of false teachers or Jesus for that matter! We are supposed to HATE the evil – we don’t hate the person – but they are the purveyors of evil so we are to AVOID them.

  • sylesa

    One more thing, then i will let it go. It furthers the Kingdom of God when false doctrine is exposed. It is the Word of God that has power to bring faith into the heart and to transform a sinners heart. Lies and twisting of the scripture cannot do that. The people that you have called servants of God are not servants of God, they are false teachers. They are the instruments of Satan, decievers and decieved as the scriptures say.

    As far as Cindy Jacobs, her false prophecy is only one of many and her entire doctrine is unbiblical. But then , you must not yourself study the Word or you would know that.

    Do you really believe that everyone who has Christ on their lips and a bible in their hand serves God? Remember Satan does not come with horns and pitchfork but comes religious and as an angel of light.

    For every person who has ever lifted his eyes up in hell because nobody showed them the false “Christianity” that decieved them, I wonder if weighed in the balance , would it be more important to find some “positive” comment to make on behalf of the false teacher or would it have served the decieved person more to have been warned as to the nature of the deception they were under? Since nobody can come back from hell, i guess i’m asking you David? If it was YOU that found YOURSELF in hell, would you then be so concerned about the “charity” of finding something good to say about the false teacher who decieved you? Or would you find it a better piece of true charity to have warned you about the nature of your deception and the teachers who decieved you? Satan and doctrines of demons are behind these false teachers. These false teachers are , some of them decieved themselves and others of them know exactly what they are doing and it is for their gain that they decieve.The scriptures say as much.

    If you come across somebody in the process of murdering another person, are you going to contemplate “well, i’m sure there is SOME good in this murderer” or are you going to do what you can to rescue the victim? Well David, this is much more important than the physical rescue of a persons natural life, this is dealing with their eternal state.

    So coming full circle, are you interested in truth and the eternal rescue of souls, or are you defending some individuals that perhaps you listen to and therefore you are not yourself grounded in the truth as to be able to discern the error of those you would defend?

    The Lord had His most scathing rebukes to the false religious leaders. If we care about truth and the souls of those decieved by these charlatans, should we feel any different? Should you? It is a false charity that you speak of David, though you are probably very sincere in your desire to speak well of these teachers.Your hearty may be in the right place , but you are not seeing the reality of the situation.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)


    That is correct. I don’t even call people names. All I do is POINT OUT THE LIES. Apparently pointing out the lies is as good as insulting someone.

    What I found very amusing with David’s comment last night but did not answer because it was too funny at the time was how he goes completely against what BIBLE teaches – GOOD WORKS ARE BUT FILTHY RAGS. But David wants me to mention Cindy Jacobs GOOD WORKS and ignore her false teachings, her LIES. *laugh*

  • Peter

    Deborah, you’ve got some personal issues you need to sort out. The scorn you poured out on David is not what I would expect from a Christian who is full of love and grace. He made some valid points, but looking at your website, it is clear that you do not tolerate anybody who disagrees with you, and prefer to belittle them; neither do you tolerate healthy debate. I was shocked at some of the authors and books that are on your hit list; whilst I would agree with some, and there are many that I don’t know so cannot judge, some are authors or teachers who are good Men of God that have what I know to be superb Biblically-based material. I am curious to know what qualifies you to set yourself up as an expert, how many people you have helped lead to Christ, and on what part of the Bible you based your vitriol.

  • John Stander

    Perhaps the critic should,in addition to the abovementioned Scriptures, take note of Jesus’ treatment of Peter when, after confessing that Jesus is the Messiah, attempted to dissuade Him from proceeding to Jerusalem to be tried and crucified. My Bible does not record a molly coddling response from Jesus with a meek request to fit in (or whatever), but rather the sternest of rebukes possible. And this to a man destined to be a leading disciple in the early Church.

  • sylesa

    I think David listens to those false teachers and that is why he is upset at the critisism of them.
    We live in a “politically correct” world, which (laugh) is another way of saying fakey ,fakey don’t say what you REALLY feel, don’t point out what you REALLY see! How ridiculous!

    That was why i pointed out to David that the scriptures calls the false leaders names and not very nice ones at that! This website is not doing that! So , I wonder if David and those nay sayers have some serious correction to give to God Himself and to the Lord Jesus Christ whos language concerning false teachers is much harsher than this website!

    Also , as far as her “good works” pthuu! The Pharisees sounded their trumpets also when they did theirs! How good a work is it anyways to “help ” somebody, while spiritually poisoning them? Just to make a name for yourself and to pay for your big mansion? Satan is very clever, better have some “good works” to rope in people like David.

    I hope that he gets into the Word, then he will see Jacobs and the others for what they are and will take heed to himself if he is under their teachings.People that don’t understand the importance of true doctrine always seem shocked when they hear false teachers critisized. *sigh*

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)


    I see you are another lover of lies. And the SCORN I poured out on David? My word you got to be kidding me? Actually no, your words are par for the course of one who loves lies over truth and evil over good.

  • Robbie

    Peter, it is either pride or ignorance that quotes and pastes our own opinions. You are always welcome to quote scripture if you suspect error.
    That would promote healthy conversation/debate.

  • sylesa


    LOL!!!! The SCORN?!! LOL!!!! I can’t stop laughing…., some people are alittle dramatic, lol!!

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)


    I am surprised they didn’t say I tried to murder him. ROTFL

  • Peter

    [Edtied by DTW: How insulting of you to say such things to me. Please do not comment again, they will be deleted.]

  • Robbie


    Constructive criticism instead of the WHOLE TRUTH is still rat poison. Lots of good food mixed with poison.

    When we think that we can forgive blatant error for the sake of “love” we are in darkness too!

    2Jn 1:10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
    2Jn 1:11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

    Indeed David… Paul did not call them names but he called them BY NAME AND he was clear to whom he was handing them over!

    1Ti 1:20 Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.

  • loisa

    I am from Zimbabwe and of late I have been convicted of the Cindy Jacobs prophecy. I believe that to God a thousand years to God is like a day. those who complain that the prophecies are tarrying why not say Joseph was a false prophet when on his deathbed he promised the children of Israel that God will surely bring them out of Egypt. Wake up people and stop trying to be God God delivered the children of Israel after 400 years not 4 years. if God said it, He will perform it. I am praying like Anna the prophetess for this day to pass in my lifetime, if it doesnt that it will not tarry. God is not a man that He should lie.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)


    >> I am praying like Anna the prophetess for this day to pass in my lifetime

    Why don’t you just pray like Loisa and go read your bible. Where are your riches Loisa? On Earth? What does the bible say about those who gather their riches on earth? You are NOT an Israelite – you can’t compare what they went through to what any other country is going through.

  • Thomas Banfield

    Dear Deborah; I have to agree with you regarding false propecies. There are many of them that have been spoken over television ministries. I was quite astounded when hearing one given to a leader which told him he would have a double portion of a certain evangilist that passed away last year, which in reality was passed on to his son by the father. The prophet who spoke to the television minister was false. I was decieved for many years thinking God had anointed me with a prophet’s call because of false words given to me during that time. I humbled myself and repented and asked our Heavenly Father for his calling. I only wish that these breathren would recieve correction in a gracious manner and humble themselves. We do need true prophets today who will tell the truth. thank you

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)


    Hallelujah that your eyes were opened to the truth and you were saved out of this terrible false movement.

  • ryan

    wonder how Noah felt after prophesying…all the nay sayers..plenty of them…

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)


    Cindy Jacobs is NOT NOAH!

  • How is Cindy Jacobs a prophet? According to Scripture the prophets were until John. Oh, wait a minute… I get it! Cindy Jacobs is a prophetESS. That means she what she must say will always come to pass.
    Pardon the sarcasm. I couldn’t resist it.
    In the first place, her prophecy on Zimbabwe failed. She as a Dominionist which is patently unbiblical. She agrees with the Seven Mountain Mandate nonsense. Hello, it’s unbiblical. Check Chris Rosenbrough’s Cindy Jabob’s Inadvertent Admission that She is a False Prophet.
    Chris Rosenburgh shows Cindy Jacobs is a Bible illiterate. Anyone with a basic knowledge of the Bible should see that. Tragically few people do.
    I wonder how those who make gods of these people can be so blind. If those who set themselves up as Bible teachers and contradict the Bible in any way, it ought to scream out to us that they are deceivers. But it doesn’t to those who still defend these charlatans. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. Whatever we put above god is our god and is not God. When we do that we are idolators. We will one day have to answer for that idolatry. Best repent of it now.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Just note Chris Rosenburgh is a Lutheran, so he has one foot in Rome, he may as well join Cindy on the trek there.

      1. Any false, defamatory, libelous, abusive, threatening, racially offensive, sexually explicit, obscene, harmful, vulgar, hateful, illegal, or otherwise objectionable content;
      2. Any content that may be seen as stalking or harassing of any other Site contributors;
      3. Any content that personally attacks an individual. (An example of a personal attack is posting negative comments about an individual in a way meant to demean that person. Note that posting your opinion about someone’s ideas, doctrine or actions is not a personal attack);
      4. Any content that discloses private details concerning any person, for eg., phone numbers that have not been made public, photos that are not in the public domain, residential address that is not public, ID numbers, Social Security numbers, email addresses that are not in the public domain, etc.;
      5. Any content that you know to be false, misleading, or fraudulent;
      6. Any use of profanity;
      7. Any content including advertisements or otherwise focused on the promotion of commercial events or businesses, or any request for or solicitation of money, goods, or services for private gain;
      8. Any content that contains software viruses or any other computer code, files or programs designed to interrupt, destroy or limit the functionality of any computer software or hardware or telecommunications equipment; or
      9. Any content directly or indirectly soliciting responses from minors (defined as anyone under 18 years of age).
    1. If any part of the “Comment” is not your original work, it is your responsibility to add the name of the third party, name the book with page number or a link (url) to the website where you obtained the information.
    2. Your “Comment” may contain Copyrighted material, the use of which has not always been specifically authorized by the copyright owner. You are however allowed to make such material available in your “Comment” in an effort to advance understanding of environmental, political, human rights, economic, democracy, scientific, and social justice issues, etc.  This constitutes a ‘fair use’ of any such copyrighted material as provided for in section 107 of the US Copyright Law. In accordance with Title 17 U.S.C. Section 107, the material on this Site is distributed without profit to those who have expressed a prior interest in receiving the included information for research and educational purposes.

    3. If you wish to use copyrighted material from a website or any other medium for purposes to add to your “Comment” that go beyond ‘fair use’, you must obtain permission from the copyright owner. (Fair Use means you may quote from copyrighted sources, but you may not publish the whole article, book, etc., in your “Comment”.)
  8. You are solely responsible for the “Comment” you upload, post, transmit or otherwise make available to others using this Web Site. Under no circumstances will Discerning the World be liable in any way for any “Comment” posted on or made available through this Site by you or any third party.
  9. You understand that all “Comments” on this Site are pre-screened or moderated. That means that every “Comment” needs to be approved by Discerning the World before it appears in the “Comments” section.  This is not an automatic process.  Discerning the World does this for SPAM reasons.
  10. Discerning the World has the right (but not the obligation) in their sole unfettered discretion to remove any “Comment” that is posted on or available through the Site. Without limiting the foregoing, Discerning the World has the right to remove any “Comment” that violates these Terms or is otherwise deemed objectionable by Discerning the World in its sole discretion.

  12. When submitting a “Comment,” you will be asked to provide your name and your email address. While Discerning the World does not object to your use of a pseudonym instead of your actual name, Discerning the World reserves the right, but not the obligation, to reject, change, disallow, or discontinue at any time any submission name that, in Discerning the World’s sole unfettered discretion, is objectionable or inappropriate for any reason. Discerning the World requires the submission of your email address, but Discerning the World warrants that it will not publish your email address to an outside third party without your consent.
  13. Discerning the World does not sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes. From time to time, Discerning the World may contact you personally via email. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge and understand that the “Comments” feature of the Site is designed to permit users to post information and commentary for public review and comment and thus you hereby waive any expectation of privacy you may have concerning any likeness or information provided to the Site by you.

Discerning the World shall have the right, but not the obligation, to monitor interactions utilizing the “Comments” facility of the Site, between you and other users of or visitors to the Site.
