      Here's the 2018 outline, see page 3 under 'THEOCRATIC PROCEDURES FOR INVESTIGATING WRONGDOING.
      To summarize: 
      'Legal blood-alcohol limits vary depending on local laws and do not necessarily establish that a person was Biblically drunk.
      At times, elders may feel pressured to take judicial action due to notoriety and/or bad publicity.
      Strong suspicions and negative hearsay reports do not establish wrongdoing; elders must adhere to the Scriptural requirements'.
      This is quite a low-key affair with booze. I've seen it before, a gentle reminder here and there to drink less, because you've been stumbling other brothers. But it really sets the tone for how matters which reach the public eye should be handled...what it's saying is 'ignore negative publicity, as long as it doesn't disagree with the bible then the law won't affect your standing in the congregation'. Starting with booze is a sly move to recommend that this format is perfectly acceptable to be applied to more serious issues.
      Now imagine this same template applied to child abuse. I am well aware this is already partly being done, but I can see the scale of it growing exponentially. The quantification of child abuse...the law may say you're guilty, but scripturally there's not enough evidence to disfellowship. Your LEVEL of abuse appears to be significantly less that what the media would have us believe. Did he really rape a child? The media says he did, but our brother wouldn't lie, would he? He's admitted he did touch the child, but he completely denied he actually raped her. We must ignore the pressure applied from the world to remove this brother from the congregation when clearly there is no evidence he did rape the child. 
      Innocent until proven biblically guilty.
      Very frustrating when you see the potential of this outline and how easily it can be taken advantage of.

      Here’s another reason, as if you needed it, to feel crippling anxiety about everything you eat and drink. A new study published in the journalAddiction concludes that alcohol consumption causes cancer — and you’re at risk even if you just enjoy the occasional glass or two of Pinot. Most people probably realize drinking can cause liver cancer, but that’s just thebeginning. The study’s analysis directly links alcohol consumption to the development of seven types of cancer, including that of the breast and liver, and now there’s growing evidence that it can cause skin, pancreatic, and prostate cancer. According to the study, 5.8 percent of cancer deaths around the world can be attributed to drinking.
      Author Jennie Connor, a professor of preventive and social medicine in New Zealand, drew on studies conducted over the last decade by the World Cancer Research Fund, the World Health Organisation’s cancer body, and other organizations. While she says heavy drinkers are most at risk, Connor insists that public-health campaigns should encourage everyone to cut down, and tells The Guardian light drinkers experience a “considerable burden.” That, of course, is the exact opposite of how drinking should make you feel.
      Over in England, the country’s chief medical officer caused some hoopla earlier this year when she warned women that drinking could cause breast cancer. She also helped usher in new government guidelines that suggest men limit their alcohol consumption to seven pints of beer a week. (That limit sounds particularly unrealistic now that the country’s citizens are coping with the consequences of Brexit.) One doctor with Cancer ResearchUK even went so far as to suggest alternating rounds of booze and soft drinks, or drinking low-alcohol cocktails. One thing’s certain: It’s another great reason to avoid blue wine when it hits the market.

    • And do you think that people who are suffering in Venezuela and Nicaragua care if USA or Afrika or whoever support the fall of the regimes? @JW InsiderGo and live in Nicaragua and Venezuela, try to get a decent job, food, health care  and tell me if you won't continue considering privileged your butt for living in a country where you can express freely your dissapointmente without fearing that police will come and torture you.  In the past you have defended Daniel Ortega and Maduro, I thought you were neutral or at least kind towards your fellow believers who suffer.  Have you not read what had happened to the JWS there,? Would you like to be one of those who have been raped, assaulted, or having to leave the country? Ask JW.ORG they posted a video about the crisis in Venezuela.  As for politics, which I don't care but it is good to know. The process in Venezuela with Juan Guaido or whoever  is the most closest to what the law states about a president elected by the congress, a congress elected by people, not a parallel congress created by Maduro to ussurp the power, that is what is has been happening for the past 3 years. Go and read and get informed, because is is hyprocrisy from you siting your butt in the USA, having food everyday and pretending to be a normal JW when you are supporting dictators in the region without having information and worst of all not wearing the shoes of the victims.  Don't come to tell us fairy tales to who know and live the story every day...  
    • Here are some interesting articles. Most of them from venezualanalysis.com US Administrations Have Been Intervening in Venezuela Since at Least the Early 2000s FAIR's Janine Jackson interviews Alexander Main about US-backed regime change efforts in Venezuela and the role of the international media. Janine Jackson: When it comes to Venezuela, elite US media don’t hide their feelings. And their feelings are all the same. Headlines on last year’s reelection of Venezuelan president Nicolás Maduro differed only in tone, including the disdainful: “As Venezuelans Go Hungry, Their Government Holds a Farcical Election,” from the Economist; the decisive:  USA Today‘s “Maduro Is Turning Venezuela Into a Dictatorship,” or Foreign Affairs’ more somber version, “Venezuela’s Suicide; Lessons From a Failed State.” There’s Forbes’ vaguely threatening “Why Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela May Wish He Lost the Presidential Election,” and Foreign Policy’s unashamed “It’s Time for a Coup in Venezuela.” But they’re all pretty much variations on a theme that’s hard to unhear, given that media bang it out so loudly and repeatedly. Here to help us sort fact from froth is Alexander Main. He’s director of international policy at the Center for Economic and Policy Research. He joins us by phone from Washington, DC. Welcome to CounterSpin, Alex Main. read more .... https://venezuelanalysis.com/analysis/14238  
    • This shows the hypocrisy of NPR and the US Government in all their talk about supposed Russian interference in our own US elections. You can't interfere more blatantly than to get behind a coup attempt and declare a person President when he has never been involved in a national election before. Then, a supposedly "Christian" U.S. vice-President named Pence, blatantly lies about the recent re-election of Maduro. Pence claimed that “Nicolas Maduro is a dictator with no legitimate claim to power,” saying he “has never won the presidency in a free and fair election.” In fact, according to Venezualanalysis, a left-leaning reporting source: In accordance with Venezuela’s Constitution, Maduro was sworn in January 10 for his second six-year mandate after defeating three other candidates in the presidential elections of May 2018. The elections, which were boycotted by some sectors of the opposition, were declared to be free, fair, and transparent by independent international electoral observers in the country at the time. One of the big problem with elites in Venezuela is their blatant racism. They have been behind several failed attempts to assassinate Maduro. They promote social media memes showing him as a monkey and many other racist comments. And they use hashtags in Spanish that mean "Assassinate Maduro." He is darker skinned than the white Venezuelans, and he is a socialist. Socialists, because they represent workers, instead of the profiteers, are often persecuted by elites in their own country. The US administration, of course, also hates socialism and has always backed character assassination of socialist leaders, sometimes it goes beyond just "character" assassination. The US will no doubt look for any opportunities to raise the rhetoric, hoping for any opportunity to justify a crackdown and violence. In fact, when Maduro expelled the US diplomats for supporting the coup attempt, the US said that the president didn't have the authority to expel diplomats and that the they will stay there. Marco Rubio immediately made the threat that if anything happened to them they could expect the US to come down with full force (violence) upon Maduro. The US has said that Venezuelans should take to the streets and that they would have the full support of the US. Of course, they only mean the support of anti-Maduro crowds in the streets, as their have also been equal numbers of pro-Maduro crowds. The US hates it when they cannot control the leader of a country that is rich in oil. The direct hypocrisy of the US shows up even more clearly when we look at US recent support for Brazil and Colombia.  
    • Break in US-Venezuela relations raises fresh concerns for oil market and OPEC The break in U.S.-Venezuela diplomatic relations raises concerns that Washington will expand sanctions to energy trade. Venezuela relies on imports of super light oil from the United States, while U.S. refiners are big purchasers of heavy crude from the Bolivarian Republic. Sanctions on Venezuela's energy minister, who holds OPEC's rotating presidency this year, would also create a headache for the 14-nation producer group. A sudden escalation in long-burning tensions between the United States and Venezuela could have far-reaching ramifications in the oil market, where the Bolivarian Republic remains a significant player despite its plunging output. On Wednesday, the Trump administration announced it would back Venezuelan National Assembly leader Juan Guaido, who declared himself the country's interim president earlier in the day. Shortly after President Donald Trump recognized Guaido, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro severed relations with the United States and gave U.S. diplomatic personnel 72 hours to leave the country. The latest development raises the prospect that the United States will expand sanctions to U.S.-Venezuelan energy trade, a move that would be potentially devastating to Venezuela. The nation has seen its oil production crater in recent years, depriving the socialist republic of its lifeblood energy revenue and exacerbating a devastating economic crisis.

    • Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó declared himself the country's interim president amid nationwide protests Wednesday, in a bid to seize power from sitting leader Nicolás Maduro. The U.S. swiftly proclaimed its support for Guaidó. Maduro responded by announcing a break in diplomatic relations with Washington. Guaidó, the 35-year-old recently elected head of Venezuela's National Assembly, took the oath of office on an outdoor podium in Caracas, flanked by yellow, blue and red Venezuelan flags. He raised his right hand as a crowd erupted in cheers. He promised to serve as interim leader and call for general elections.
