GREETINGS


"Canst thou by searching find out God?
Canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection? It is as high as heaven; what canst thou do? deeper than hell; what canst thou know? The measure thereof is longer than the earth, and broader than the sea. If he cut off, and shut up, or gather together, then who can hinder him? For he knoweth vain men: he seeth wickedness also; will he not then consider it? For vain man would be wise, though man be born like a wild ass's colt.
If thou prepare thine heart, and stretch out thine hands toward him; If iniquity be in thine hand, put it far away, and let not wickedness dwell in thy tabernacles. For then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot; yea, thou shalt be stedfast, and shalt not fear: Because thou shalt forget thy misery, and remember it as waters that pass away:
And thine age shall be clearer than the noonday; thou shalt shine forth, thou shalt be as the morning. And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope; yea, thou shalt dig about thee, and thou shalt take thy rest in safety. Also thou shalt lie down, and none shall make thee afraid; yea, many shall make suit unto thee. But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall not escape, and their hope shall be as the giving up of the ghost." Job 11:7-20

We believe every word in the KJV Bible and believe it is the Word of God and that Jesus is the Christ, God Himself, who spilled His blood on the cross for our sins and rose again to prepare a place for those who repent and accept 'His' righteousness as their righteousness. They are those who accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, Jews first and then Gentiles. "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." We invite you to take this opportunity to say 'yes' to Jesus and commit your life to Him only by clicking on this link: Salvation
Luke 12:20,21 "But God said unto him, "Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God."
We pray the Lord will bless you with a thirst for truth and a desire to serve Him exclusively, in Christ Jesus, Cephas Ministry / Cephas Library.

MORE GREETINGS to all and the newcomers to this list. We'd like to introduce ourselves. George and Rita Williams founded this ministry. We were Mormons (Temple Mormons) for 20 years. We prayed to God in 1992 to allow us to do a ministry speaking out against Scientology. Six months later God led us to the truth: out of the cult of Mormonism. We did not know at the time we were in a cult. No-one had witnessed to us in 20 years.
The Holy Spirit brought us to information about all the cults and the present development of the New World Order. We began bringing our research to you. Because all the research was already done, we decided to build a library within Cephas Ministry. Our newsletters are not designed to provoke anger which is strictly prohibited in Scripture. It is to shed light on activities by those who would deceive those who are recorded in the Book of Life by devious methods and systematic plans.

We are Bible students and have left all worldly organizations. We attend church if the message is from the authorized KJV Bible. The focus of these newsletters is to prove why we had to leave the world system. We are called 'Watchmen on the Wall' which God always had during the Old / New Testament Times.
To understand what is happening, one has to know the Bible to compare notes.
The first section is about the church. The news about churches is unedited unless indicated by Ednotes. The church as we knew it, is undergoing disintegration. This began on a fast track in the early nineteen sixties when the Catholic Church produced liberal Vatican II to replace Vatican I.
The trend since then has been ecumenical which is truly what the word 'Catholicism' means: a universal religion all inclusive and multicultural. The Bible calls for a final church and today's church doesn't resemble what Jesus taught. The Word of God has undergone many changes to fit the progressive modes. Many new Bible tranlations have brought confusion. The Bible calls for a falling away from churches and becoming atheistic before Jesus comes back for His Bride. The true believers are called 'Ekklesia.' Our newsletters prove this fact and prove that the Bible is true from beginning to end.
The second section is about globalism where we bring your attention to the social, political and global trend, the so called democratizing what is left of the world. This is a deception since the underlying new world global government is developed by implementing sustainable development (Agenda 21). The Bible prophesies that there will be ten kings (ten horns), each king (horn) will receive a region of the world as a reward for work well done for the Antichrist. This is the reason for the present development of NAU (The North American Union) as well as the war in the Middle East. It again proves that we are moving to closure of the times of the Gentiles prophesied in the Bible. The end result will not be Democracy but a form of Fascist Communism (Public/Private Corporations enslaving mankind).
The third section compliments End Time teachings because Israel is the time piece of the Biblical Prophecy. 1948 was the beginning of the figtree representing Israel, coming back to life. Israel was allowed to return to its land. Israel is the rock upon which the world stumbles and crumbles. We watch and visit Israel for signs which point to the Tribulation to confirm that we are moving into that space of time.

Watchmen on the wall do not solicit memberships. We have an email group that gets information when we upload new information and newsletters whenever it is possible time wise. We love the Lord with all our hearts and minds and we love all people God has created but especially those who love our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

We trust that our readers will not be discouraged. Believers are under attack that starts with the administration in WDC. We are told to keep on and endure to the end.
It is God’s will that we know the times (1 Ch. 12:32; Mat. 16:3) and that we be as wise as serpents and harmless as doves.
The Cephas Newsletter reminds us that the hour is very late, and we need to be ready for the Lord’s coming. Are you sure that you are born again? Are you living for Christ?
 
"And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof" (Rom. 13:11-14).
 

 
PS We are seeking the truth and use much material from many sources only when we believe their material could be of service to you. That should not imply that we endorse ministries, news organizations or various authors. We are not all-knowing and cannot predict what people will write in the future. CMI

GOOD FIGHT MINISTRIES - Lessons from the Alabama Massacre
In the wake of Alabama’s worst mass shooting in the state’s history, many Americans have been left dumbfounded as the nation mourns and wonders how a young man could murder 11 people in cold blood.

A RIVER OF GRACE FROM BEGINNING TO END: “THAT’S THE MASTERPIECE OF THE BOOK OF REVELATION.”
Any view of this book that dwells on calamity, sorrows, or only the coming judgments is woefully wrong. The mighty power of the Blood and the Holy Ghost is like a river that is at flood stage throughout this incredible book. God’s wonderful grace and power is always like a giant reservoir where a dynamo of electrical current is created. This reservoir of water must have a constant flow or very shortly the electrical current would cease. Our lives are exactly like that reservoir. Unless God’s power is flowing we will soon be an empty vessel. It takes consecration and a strong prayer life to be a powerful and victorious saint. It’s not you, it’s Him in you.
I love the idea of this “Holy Ghost River” at flood stage. With a little imagination you can see a flood of waters carrying all within its bounds downstream and rushing toward the open sea. That’s the picture I want you to see of the grace of God flooding your soul. This is evident in the Book of Revelation. John said it like this. “And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” (Revelation 1:5-6) Spirit filled saints change the climate wherever they shine. They are like a river that has overflowed its banks.
The Masterpiece we call “The Apocalypse” has every great truth in the Bible revealed in a drama of reality. You can name any doctrine of Biblical truth and find it in a living form in this Book. I have challenged Bible students at Prophesy Conferences to name any doctrine in the Bible and I will show it to them in the Book of Revelation. Yet many in our church world still ignore this great revelation. There cannot be but one reason to reject this book. It is the rejection of the pre-Tribulation Rapture and the two doctrines of “The Great Tribulation” and “The Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ in Jerusalem.” Continued: http://www.pawcreek.org/salty-saints/john-the-revelator-saw-the-river-of-grace

SWIFT AS THE LIGHTNING, MAGNIFICENT, HOLY AND INNUMERABLE : ANGELS
WE MUST COME TO UNDERSTAND THE INCREDIBLE NATURE OF HOLY ANGELS. You have probably never considered the almost indescribable nature of God’s mighty army of Angels. If the wicked multitude that flaunt God and His righteousness could get a glimpse of these perfectly Holy beings, they would tremble almost to insanity. Imagine the transgender, homosexual, lesbian and the confused multitudes facing an army of God’s Angels. Suddenly they will see their dark deeds under the eyes of absolute holiness. Every sin will be magnified a million times when God’s Holy Light shines like the noon day sun.
His mighty Angels and Cherubims will be seen shortly in number beyond counting. Isaiah stated by the Holy Spirit, “For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.” (Isaiah 66:15) The Psalmist David said. “The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels: the Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy place.” (Psalms 68:17) Our world has become oblivious toward God and any thought of judgment, but not for long. An end time prophecy in Zechariah is overwhelming, “And I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came four chariots out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass. In the first chariot were red horses; and in the second chariot black horses; And in the third chariot white horses; and in the fourth chariot grisled and bay horses. Then I answered and said unto the angel that talked with me, What are these, my lord? And the angel answered and said unto me, These are the four spirits of the heavens, which go forth from standing before the Lord of all the earth.” (Zechariah 6: 1-5) These chariots of our Lord are innumerable. Four is a number for the activities of the Father in the earth. Continued:

THE MAGNIFICENT CHERUBIMS AND AWESOME ANGELS ARE ALL OVER THE SCENES AND EVENTS IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION.
The Book begins by clearly stating that the total volume was received from Jesus Christ and revealed to John by the “Angel Of The Lord.” You can believe that there is a mighty and special angel that is known in the Bible as “The Angel Of The Lord”. In the First Testament the pre-incarnate Christ is often called the “Angel Of The Lord” or at least it is believed that it was the Lord Himself. That may be a mystery we will soon learn the fullness about. The opening verse states, “ The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his Angel unto his servant John…” (Revelation 1:1) The great interworking of Heaven shines like the sun in this masterpiece.
Angels are named 75 times in the Twenty-Two Chapters of Revelation. The living creatures or Cherubims, called beasts, are named 23 times. These heavenly creatures are clearly supervising and administering the great visions and activities. Their conversation with John the Revelator is constant. The great host of Raptured Saints merge in with the Angels and Cherubims and share the proceedings together. Sometimes John talks with saints, now called Elders, as well as the Magnificent Cherubims and Beautiful Angels. The Father and His Son, called “The Lamb,” are unquestionably the great Masters of the total Revelation.
After the RAPTURED saints have sung their initial song of praise and adoration, then they join the great host of Angels and the Living Creatures in a doxology of praise. We will join together as the heavens are sure to resound with incredible glory. “And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.” (Revelation 5: 11-12) This Book of Scripture gives us our best picture of the many activities of angels. Praise and singing is at the top of the list. Lucifer, in his pre-fallen condition, is believed to have been their music teacher.
In the Second and Third Chapters, Angels are seen as messengers to the churches in close fellowship with the pastors. I believe God ordained for every true church to have a heavenly pastor and an earthly co-pastor. Each of the messages except the last begin with, “And unto the angel of the church… write…..” (Revelation 3:1) The last church letter was no longer addressed to the Angel and the church but to the Angel and the people because the God appointed earthly pastors will barely exist. The Scripture states, “And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write;…” (Revelation 3:14) Remember this as you look toward our present church world and the utter lack of authority in the pulpit.

THE COMING PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS

 END-TIME CHURCH / PLURALISM


 


MORMON'S NEW WORLD ORDER
Above: The Mormon entrance to the Salt Lake City, Utah, Temple (notice the all-seeing eye). Mormon founder, Joseph Smith, was a 33rd degree Freemason. See, Mormonism and Freemasonry.
".....2. As the Mormon nation of “Deseret” was carved up by the US Government between 1858 and 1912 and pieces of it were given to other States populated by US citizens loyal to the United States Government, the Mormon religion became more and more desperate to have their own State, which they knew they would need in order to maintain any semblance of religious autonomy. Because of this, in 1890 the Mormon religion was finally forced to issue what is known today as “The 1890 Manifesto”, which was a formal decree by the Mormon religion to finally ban the practice of polygamy within the United States and its territories.
However, the REAL intent of the “1890 Manifesto” was to initiate an intensive public relations campaign designed to create the appearance that the Mormons of Utah had finally become good and loyal citizens of the United States and were going to live in accordance with the Judeo-Christian laws of America. Ironically, the “1890 Manifesto” resulted in a vast exodus of Mormon polygamists out of the Utah Territory who began fleeing to places “that would be hidden and protected by God” in accordance with yet another Mormon prophecy that God revealed to Mormon President John Taylor in 1884. So, instead of polygamy being limited just to Utah, polygamy spread like the plague to all states in the western United States, and Canada and Mexico, where it still flourishes today. The whole story:

MORMON WOMEN SET OUT TO TAKE A STAND, IN PANTS
LAS VEGAS — A call for Mormon women to wear pants to church, begun this month by a small group of women, has stretched across the globe, but not before creating a backlash and even generating death threats.
“Wear Pants to Church,” an event on Sunday, was meant to draw attention to the role of women in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, using attire as a symbolic first salvo in a larger struggle over gender inequalities.
Though the Mormon Church has no official policy against women wearing pants to church, many say they feel peer pressure to wear a dress, particularly in the Western United States, organizers said. So on Sunday, thousands of Mormon women arrived at church in pants in places like Cambridge, England; Heidelberg, Germany; Austin, Tex.; the Marshall Islands; and Kotzebue, Alaska. A number of the women posted their photos on Facebook and other Web sites. Others said they could not participate because they were fearful of ridicule or reprimand.
A Google map, begun so women could show they participated, included posts like this one, from Kari White, in Sheboygan, Wis.: “felt free to be an authentic me for the first time in my nearly 5 years of membership in the church.”
Joanna Brooks, a professor at San Diego State University and the author of “The Book of Mormon Girl: A Memoir of an American Faith,” called it “the largest concerted Mormon feminist effort in history.”
A church spokesman, Eric Hawkins, declined to comment on the event. Organizers hope the dialogue will now expand to include issues like the ordination of women, or women taking on more responsibilities at church events. They also cited the pronounced role of the Boy Scouts in the church — boys routinely become troop leaders in the organization, but girls have no similar outlet with the Girl Scouts — and the fact that young men are expected to go on two-year missions to spread the faith, but young women are not. The result: the vast majority of Mormon missionaries are men. “Wear Pants to Church” was the idea of Stephanie Lauritzen of Salt Lake City. She and some fellow Mormon women who belonged to a group called All Enlisted posted an events page on Facebook on Dec. 9. Within days, thousands had pledged their support, but one person threatened to shoot women who showed up in pants. Ms. Lauritzen, 26, also received threats on her own Facebook page that are being investigated by Facebook and the local authorities, she said.

SUPPORT FOR EGYPT'S MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD ERODES IN AN ISLAMIST BASTION
[Ednote: Rt.com referred to a 1 out of 4 (25%) unemployment rate in Egypt 12.28.2012]
AL TALBEYA, Egypt — Mohamed Salamah used to vote with the Muslim Brotherhood. But in Saturday’s referendum on the Islamist-backed constitution, Mr. Salamah says he is voting against it, mainly because he no longer trusts the movement.“They aren’t even doing anything very Islamic,” said Mr. Salamah, a 24-year-old waiter in a cafe in Al Talbeya, a working-class neighborhood in Giza across the Nile from Cairo that was an Islamist stronghold in previous votes. “They are just doing things that aren’t very competent.”
Throughout the neighborhood, both loyal supporters and critics of the Brotherhood described a deep erosion in the group’s street-level support. That was evident, they said, even before the low turnout and narrow margin in last weekend’s first round of voting on what residents here call “the Brotherhood constitution.” The results so far appear to have surprised leaders of the Brotherhood and their opposition. And even if the draft constitution is approved, as expected, on Saturday in the second half of the vote, the new questions about the charter’s popularity and the Brotherhood’s mandate could prolong Egypt’s political turbulence and, as a result, defer badly needed economic reforms as well. Residents here and around Cairo say the damage to the Brotherhood’s popularity is unrelated to its religious ideology. It reflects a consistent trio of complaints: confusing economic policies of the Brotherhood-led government, a near-monopoly on power and civilian supporters’ use of force against opponents in a street battle two weeks ago. Even so, many say the Brotherhood remains the most potent political force, in part because of the incoherence of the opposition, which has often focused on accusing the Brotherhood of imposing religious rule.

ROMAN CATHOLIC CLERIC CELEBRATION PALESTINIAN STATE

BETHLEHEM, West Bank (AP) December 24, 2012 10:19 AM EST - The top Roman Catholic cleric in the Holy Land celebrated the United Nations' recent recognition of a Palestinian state in his annual pre-Christmas homily on Monday, saying that while the road to actual freedom from Israeli occupation remains long, the Palestinian homeland has been born.
Latin Patriarch Fouad Twal told followers at the patriarchate's headquarters in Jerusalem's Old City that this year's festivities were doubly joyful, celebrating "the birth of Christ our Lord and the birth of the state of Palestine."
"The path (to statehood) remains long, and will require a united effort," added Twal, a Palestinian citizen of Jordan.
From Jerusalem, he set off in a procession for the West Bank city of Bethlehem, Jesus' traditional birthplace. There, he was reminded that life on the ground for Palestinians has not really changed since the U.N. recognized their state last month in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and east Jerusalem and the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.

THE HYLES EFFECT A SPREADING BLIGHT
by David W. Cloud - “Close your Bibles and listen to me” (Jack Hyles). - The original title of this book, which was first published in March 2012, was The Two Jacks, referring to the ministry and influence of Jack Hyles and his son-in-law Jack Schaap, who took the pastorate of First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana, upon Hyles’ death.
We have changed the name to The Hyles Effect: A Spreading Blight, because the book is still relevant, in spite of the fact that Jack Hyles is dead and Jack Schaap is heading to prison. This is for the simple reason that Hyles’ vast influence continues unabated and we see it as a spiritual blight. One pastor made the following comment about the new title:
“Having farmed, one of the things we had to fight against was blight. Blight will soon ruin a vegetable crop like tomatoes, melons or cucumbers. Blight was our deadly enemy.”
This book has never been just about First Baptist of Hammond. It’s about a large number of IFB churches that have been influenced by the cultic pattern modeled at First Baptist and it’s about large numbers of IFB preachers who have not spoken out against it but rather have chosen to bask in the glory of “bigness” rather than take a stand for truth.

CONTEMPORARY WORSHIP MUSIC IS A WARNING A MINISTRY IS HEADING IN THE WRONG DIRECTION
"... And justifying the use of contemporary worship is a loud warning that a ministry is heading in the wrong direction, yea, a most dangerous direction. If you justify it, you are justifying the end-time apostasy that ALL of the mainstream contemporary worship musicians represent. You are justifying the breakdown in biblical separatism. If you justify it, you will use more and more of it, and you will give your family and church an appetite for it, and you will build bridges to that extremely dangerous world: bridges over which your church will eventually walk. Those who are justifying the use of contemporary worship music are playing with fire, and they will be accountable to God for their unwise decisions.

ELEPHANT DUNG COFFEE, THE WORLD'S MOST EXPENSIVE
By Alex Johnston - December 11, 2012 - "... More than 20 elephants in Northern Thailand’s Golden Triangle region produce the world’s most expensive coffee beans. The elephants are being fed coffee cherries produced on nearby plantations, and then mahouts (elephant drivers) and their wives pluck the beans from the dung. The beans are then sun-dried and roasted. The coffee, called Black Ivory, is said to have an earthy and smooth flavor, but costs $50 for a cup and $500 per pound. It was first unveiled last month at several luxury hotels in Thailand, Maldives, and United Arab Emirates. The total supply for 2012 is 50 kg (110 pounds) with hopes for that to increase in 2013, depending on manpower. To make a single kilogram of roasted coffee (2.2. pounds), approximately 10,000 beans are picked. Some are lost in the process because elephants chew them. Whole story:

ONE NATION UNDER GOD?
By MOLLY WORTHEN - Published: December 22, 2012 - THIS week millions of “Chreasters” — Americans who attend church only on Christmas and Easter — will crowd into pews to sing carols and renew their vague relationship with the Christian God. This year, there may be fewer Chreasters than ever. A growing number of “nones” live in our midst: those who say they have no religious affiliation at all. An October Pew Research Center poll revealed that they now account for 20 percent of the population, up from 16 percent in 2008.
Avoiding church does not excuse Americans from marking the birth of Jesus, however. Most of us have no choice but to stay home from work or school — and if you complain about this glaring exception to the separation between church and state, you must be a scrooge with no heart for tradition. Christmas has been a federal holiday for 142 years. Yet Christianity’s preferential place in our culture and civil law came under fire this year, and not simply because more Americans reject institutional religion. The Obama administration subtly worked to expand the scope of protected civil rights to include access to legal marriage and birth control. Catholic bishops and evangelical activists declared that Washington was running roughshod over religious liberty and abandoning the country’s founding values, while their opponents accused them of imposing one set of religious prejudices on an increasingly pluralistic population. The Christian consensus that long governed our public square is disintegrating. American secularism is at a crossroads.
The narrative on the right is this: Once upon a time, Americans honored the Lord, and he commissioned their nation to welcome all faiths while commanding them to uphold Christian values. But in recent decades, the Supreme Court ruled against prayer in public schools, and legalized abortion, while politicians declared “war on Christmas” and kowtowed to the “homosexual lobby.” Conservative activists insist that they protest these developments not to defend special privileges for Christianity, but to respect the founders’ desire for universal religious liberty — rooted, they say, in the Christian tradition.

AMERICA IS THE LAST MAN STANDING
Geert Wilders is a Dutch Member of Parliament.- 'In a generation or two, the US will ask itself: who lost Europe ?'
Here is the speech of Geert Wilders, Chairman, Party for Freedom, the Netherlands , at the Four Seasons, New York , introducing an Alliance of Patriots and announcing the Facing Jihad Conference in Jerusalem .
Dear friends,
Thank you very much for inviting me. I come to America with a mission. All is not well in the old world. There is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very difficult to be optimistic. We might be in the final stages of the Islamization of Europe . This not only is a clear and present danger to the future of Europe itself, it is a threat to America and the sheer survival of the West. The United States as the last bastion of Western civilization, facing an Islamic Europe .
First I will describe the situation on the ground in Europe . Then, I will say a few things about Islam. To close I will tell you about a meeting in Jerusalem .
The Europe you know is changing.
You have probably seen the landmarks. But in all of these cities, sometimes a few blocks away from your tourist destination, there is another world. It is the world of the parallel society created by Muslim mass-migration.
All throughout Europe a new reality is rising: entire Muslim neighborhoods where very few indigenous people reside or are even seen. And if they are, they might regret it. This goes for the police as well. It's the world of head scarves, where women walk around in figureless tents, with baby strollers and a group of children. Their husbands, or slaveholders if you prefer, walk three steps ahead. With mosques on many street corners. The shops have signs you and I cannot read. You will be hard-pressed to find any economic activity. These are Muslim ghettos controlled by religious fanatics. These are Muslim neighborhoods, and they are mushrooming in every city across Europe . These are the building-blocks for territorial control of increasingly larger portions of Europe , street by street, neighborhood by neighborhood, city by city.
There are now thousands of mosques throughout Europe . With larger congregations than there are in churches. And in every European city there are plans to build super-mosques that will dwarf every church in the region. Clearly, the signal is: we rule.
Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim: just take Amsterdam , Marseille and Malmo in Sweden . In many cities the majority of the under-18 population is Muslim. Paris is now surrounded by a ring of Muslim neighborhoods. Mohammed is the most popular name among boys in many cities. Continued:

JUSTICES TO HEAR TWO CHALLENGES ON GAY MARRIAGE
By ADAM LIPTAK - Published: December 7, 2012 - WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court announced on Friday that it would enter the national debate over same-sex marriage, agreeing to hear a pair of cases challenging state and federal laws that define marriage to include only unions of a man and a woman.
One of the cases, from California, could establish or reject a constitutional right to same-sex marriage. The justices could also rule on narrower grounds that would apply only to marriages in California.
The second case, from New York, challenges a federal law that requires the federal government to deny benefits to gay and lesbian couples married in states that allow such unions. The court’s move comes against the backdrop of a rapid shift in public attitudes about same-sex marriage, with recent polls indicating that a majority of Americans support allowing such unions. After the elections last month, the number of states authorizing same-sex marriage increased by half, to nine. The court’s docket is now crowded with cases about the meaning of equality, with the new cases joining ones on affirmative action in higher education and on the future of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Decisions in all of the cases are expected by June. Continued: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/08/us/

ILLINOIS CLERGY MEMBERS SUPPORT SAME-SEX MARRIAGE IN LETTER SIGNED BY 260
By MAGGIE ASTOR - Published: December 23, 2012 - More than 250 religious leaders in Illinois have signed an open letter in support of same-sex marriage, which the legislature is likely to take up in January.
State Senator Heather A. Steans and another legislator plan to introduce the Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act.
“We dedicate our lives to fostering faith and compassion, and we work daily to promote justice and fairness for all,” the leaders wrote in the letter, which was released Sunday. “Standing on these beliefs, we think that it is morally just to grant equal opportunities and responsibilities to loving, committed same-sex couples. “There can be no justification,” they continued, “for the law treating people differently on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.”
This is not the first time members of the clergy have endorsed same-sex marriage, but the public nature of the letter and the number of signatures made it an especially strong statement.
The timing is also significant: State Senator Heather A. Steans and State Representative Greg Harris, both Democrats, plan to introduce a bill next month to legalize same-sex marriage. Ms. Steans said they would not put the legislation, the Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act, up for a vote unless they were confident it would pass. She added that the Senate, at least, was “definitely within striking distance” of the 30 votes needed for passage and that she hoped the letter would help persuade undecided legislators to support the bill.

CHURCH OPENS ARMS TO MUSLIM GROUP, AND IS TAKEN TO TASK
By LAURIE GOODSTEIN - Published: December 13, 2012 - NYT - When the Muslim Public Affairs Council arranged to hold its annual convention at All Saints Church in Pasadena, Calif., this Saturday, leaders of both organizations believed it would be a bold demonstration of progress in interfaith relations.
[Graphic] The Rev. J. Edwin Bacon Jr. of All Saints Church at a 2006 news conference. The church is hosting a Muslim convention.
But now the organizers of the convention have had to call in the local police department and private security guards after a conservative Christian group posted an article accusing All Saints, an Episcopal church, of harboring Muslim extremists, and the church received a barrage of hate mail.
“I’ve been called names all my life from the ultraconservative reactionary position,” the church’s rector, the Rev. J. Edwin Bacon Jr., said in an interview on Thursday, “but this is a level of demeaning that I’ve not seen before. Demeaning not just of me, but of the Muslim faith, of this organization, the Prophet Muhammad and the Koran. It tells me that there’s a culture of fear in America, a perversion of Christianity which has turned it into the religion of fear, which it of course is not.”
The episode is only the latest in which American Muslims and Muslim organizations have been accused of having ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist social and political movement that has taken power in Egypt.
Earlier this year, four Republican members of Congress accused Huma Abedin, a longtime aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, of having connections to the Brotherhood. Ms. Abedin was defended by other legislators, including Senator John McCain, a Republican, who called the attacks “unwarranted and unfounded.” The Justice Department told the Muslim group it planned to send a videotaped message of support to the convention.

ISLAMIST' HARSH JUSTICE IS ON THE RISE IN NORTH MALI
By ADAM NOSSITER - Published: December 27, 2012 - BAMAKO, Mali — Moctar Touré was strapped to a chair, blindfolded, his right hand bound tight to the armrest with a rubber tube. A doctor came and administered a shot. Then Mr. Touré’s own brother wielded a knife, the kind used to slaughter sheep, and methodically carried out the sentence. “I myself cut off my brother’s hand,” said Aliou Touré, a police chief in the Islamist-held north of this divided nation. “We had no choice but to practice the justice of God.” Such amputations are designed to shock — residents are often summoned to watch — and even as the world makes plans to recapture northern Mali by force, the Islamists who control it show no qualms about carrying them out. After the United Nations Security Council authorized a military campaign to retake the region last week, Islamists in Gao, Mr. Touré’s town, cut the hands off two more people accused of being thieves the very next day, a leading local official said, describing it as a brazen response to the United Nations resolution. Then the Islamists, undeterred by the international threats against them, warned reporters that eight others “will soon share the same fate.” Continued: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/28/world/

SAUDIS DETAIN 41 FOR 'PLOTTING' TO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS
December 28, 2012 - By Doug Stanglin, USA TODAY - Religious police in a province in northwestern Saudi Arabia have raided a house and detained more than 41 guests for "plotting to celebrate Christmas," according to a police statement, Al-Akhbar reported Friday. The newspaper, published in Beirut, said the raid in Al-Jouf is the latest in a string of crackdowns on residents perceived to threaten Saudi Arabia's strict religious code. Al-Akhbar said the host of the alleged Christmas gathering is reported to be an "Asian diplomat." Guests included 41 Christians, as well as two Saudi Arabian and Egyptian Muslims. The host and the two Muslims were said to be "severely intoxicated," the police statement said. Saudi Arabia, which only recognizes Islamic faith and practice, has in the past banned public Christmas celebrations, but has been ambiguous about festivities held in private quarters, the newspaper said.
Saudi Arabia's head mufti Sheikh Abdel Aziz bin Abdullah has previously condemned "invitations to Christmas or wedding celebrations," Al-Akhbar noted.http://www.freep.com/usatoday/article/1796747?odyssey=

POPE DECREES CONTEMPLATIVE MYSTICS “DOCTORS OF THE CHURCH”
Friday Church News Notes, November 2, 2012, David Cloud: On October 7, Pope Benedict XVI named two contemplative mystics--Hildegard of Bingen and John of Avila--“Doctors of the Church.” Though Hildegard lived in the 12th century and John in the 16th, they have a large influence among “evangelicals” in our day through their contemplative mysticism. The writings of both “saints” have been promoted by Richard Foster, whose books such as Celebration of Discipline and Spiritual Classics have played a large role in spreading contemplative mysticism. One of John’s disciples was Teresa of Avila, another influential contemplative mystic who claimed to have seen Mary and Joseph and the Trinity, levitated and experienced paralysis and feelings of being strangulated during her visions, and believed that Protestants had brought damnation to themselves by rejecting the Pope and the Mass. Hildegard, a Benedictine nun, practiced such extreme asceticism that it injured her health. She called her visions, which she allegedly began experiencing at age three, “the secret mysteries of God.” She claimed to have seen each member of the Godhead. She falsely prophesied that the end of history was at hand in her day. She was deeply committed to the veneration of Mary and wrote songs such as “Praise for the Mother.” She spoke of God in the feminine. She was committed to a false gospel of salvation through the Catholic sacraments. She claimed to have seen purgatory and described this mythical place in great detail. Her medical works are consulted in the alternative health movement today, though they were largely ridiculous, involving curative stones, incantations, and prescriptions of herbs, etc., with the objective of balancing the “humours in the body,” which is an occultic view. Her cure for baldness was to spread bear’s grease mixed with the ash of wheat straw on the head and leave it there as long as possible, and for jaundice she instructed the sufferer to tie a bat onto his back until it died. These are the dark, occultic waters from which the modern contemplative prayer movement is drawing. Contemporary worship music and contemplative prayer are two of the powerful engines that are constructing the end-time one-world church.

ONE-WORLD CHURCH CONTINUES TO TAKE SHAPE
Friday Church News Notes, November 2, 2012, David Cloud: The signs of a one-world church taking shape are everywhere today. October 7-28 the Roman Catholic Synod of Bishops XIII was held at the Vatican and was attended by Baptists, Protestants, and others as delegates and observers. Baptist leader Timothy George was one of the speakers, praising the process of “dialogue” and calling for “the church’s unity.” George prayed that the Catholic synod and the Catholic New Evangelization program will “be a harbinger of gospel renewal and refreshing for the church and for the world in our time” (“Baptist Addresses Vatican Crowd,” Associated Baptist Press, Oct. 23, 2012). Olav Tveit, general secretary of the World Council of Churches, sent a fraternal greeting to the synod. Tveit expressed a longing for “the visible unity of the Church in one faith and in one eucharistic fellowship” (“Greets of the WCC General Secretary,” Oct. 11, 2012, oikoumene.org). The World Council represents 340 denominations, and they are in close association with Rome. Add to this unholy pot the Evangelicals and Rome movement, the rapid spread of RC contemplative mysticism, the radical ecumenism of contemporary worship music, the close affiliation of the charismatic movement with Rome, and it is obvious that the “visible unity of the Church” is nearly upon us. The WCC is radically liberal in theology, as we have documented in our report “The World Council of Churches,” but Tveit’s message was fascinating for its “evangelical” tone. He talked about “the cross and the resurrection of Jesus Christ, which is the Good News.” He talked about “justification in Christ, the proclamation of the Gospel and the call to holiness.” He talked about “the power of the Holy Spirit,” about “meditating on biblical texts, and witnessing to the Gospel in [our] homes and families, on the streets or at the workplace.” If I didn’t know better, I would conclude that the man is a Bible believer, but he isn’t! He uses those beautiful words, but he has a different dictionary to define them.
For the WCC, the gospel is more about establishing “social-political justice” in this present world than the salvation of the soul. Christ, the Holy Spirit, holiness, justification, meditating on the Bible, witnessing to the Gospel, these have many different definitions within the mixed multitude of the World Council. Since Rome’s Second Vatican Council, a three-year conference that began exactly 50 years ago and that opened the door for the broadest ecumenism church history has ever witnessed, Roman Catholicism has been “evangelicalized” and evangelicals have been Romanized. We are living in a time of great mixing and merging. The black and white of doctrinal truth is being blended into the gray of compromise. Theological words are allowed many different definitions, because to be too dogmatic is impolite and divisive. Thirty years ago, I would not have thought that I would live to see independent Baptist churches playing footsie with people who are affiliated with Rome, but it is happening before our very eyes with the rapidly-spreading acceptance for contemporary worship music, which is probably the single most powerful glue for the creation of the one-world church. http://www.wayoflife.org

THE MAINSTREAMING OF MORMONISM
Friday Church News Notes, November 2, 2012, by David Cloud: Whether or not Mitt Romney wins the U.S. presidential election next week, one thing is certain: His candidacy has helped push forward the mainstreaming of Mormonism, which is something that the cult has been aiming for since Mormon leaders voiced their support for Promise Keepers in the 1990s. 1997 witnessed the publication of How Wide the Divide: A Mormon & an Evangelical in Conversation and former President Jimmy Carter stating at a national press conference that Mormons are Christians and should not be the targets of “proselytizing.” In 1998, AOG pastor Dean Jackson sent “a former declaration of repentance for prejudice against members of the Church of Latter Day Saints” to Mormon leaders in Provo, Utah. In 1999, Mormons were invited to participate in the annual March for Jesus in Salt Lake City. In 2001, Standing Together Ministries was founded by “evangelical” preacher Greg Johnson with the goal of furthering “dialogue between evangelical Christians and Latter-day Saints.” In 2004, evangelical leaders such as Ravi Zacharias, Fuller Seminary president Richard Mouw, Biola University professor Craig Hazen, and CCM artist Michael Card joined “Latter Day Saints” in an “Evening of Friendship” in the Mormon Tabernacle in Salt Lake City. (See Way of Life’s Advanced Bible Studies Series course Defense of the Faith for documentation of the previous facts.) In May 2012, CNN Belief Blog published a report on the growing influence of Mormons in Washington D.C., stating that “the nation’s capital has become a Mormon stronghold, with Latter-day Saints playing a big and growing role in the Washington establishment.” The growth of Mormonism in the nation’s capitol was described as “an absolute explosion.” In late October 2012, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) removed a longstanding reference to Mormonism as a cult from its web site after Billy and Franklin Graham met with Mitt Romney. We have long said that it is inconsistent and hypocritical to affiliate with the Roman Catholic Church while rejecting Mormonism, as both have a false gospel and a false christ. The mainstreaming of Mormonism is further evidence that the one-world church continues to gather stream. http://www.wayoflife.org

TWILIGHT LEADING TEENS TO VAMPIRISM
Friday Church News Notes, November 23, 2012, David Cloud: The following is excerpted from “‘Twilight Break Dawn’ Leading Teens to Bloodletting,” Christian Post, Nov. 12, 2012: “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, which opens in theaters on Friday, is the last chapter of the popular ‘Twilight’ movie series, but a Christian producer and author has warned that it is just the beginning when it comes to leading teenagers into occult practices. ... In his interview with Christian Post, Steve Wohlberg said he has been watching the trend of teenagers getting involved in the occult for a long time--starting with the ‘Harry Potter’ books and movies, which the producer says led many curious teens to inquire about the Wiccan religion. ‘When the Twilight series came out, I knew that just like Harry Potter contributed to interest in Wicca, Twilight will increase interest in vampirism,’ he shared. ‘There is a whole network of organizations that are promoting vampirism, and it is very easy to go on the Internet an type in teenage vampire, and you will find websites that are teaching kids how to get involved in drinking blood, how to find a donor, how to get involved in vampirism, and the evidence is so overwhelming that kids are getting involved in occultism and vampirism left and right.’ Wohlberg noted that the problem is not just limited to American teenagers--there are ‘clans’ reportedly popping up all over Australia that are actually involved in drinking blood. ... ‘The reality is that teens who are involved in mesmerizing entertainment that are saturated with occultism an making occultism look positive, there is just a lot of people who are getting lured into the real things, and that is a very dangerous trip,’ Wohlberg added. ‘The biggest danger is that kids will try to emulate the heroes (in movies like Twilight) and when they check out real occultism, they can be invaded by demonic forces.’” http://www.wayoflife.org

A LETTER FROM HOBBY LOBBY STORES CEO
Monday, November 26, 2012 By David Green, the founder and CEO of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.
When my family and I started our company 40 years ago, we were working out of a garage on a $600 bank loan, assembling miniature picture frames. Our first retail store wasn’t much bigger than most people’s living rooms, but we had faith that we would succeed if we lived and worked according to God’s word. From there, Hobby Lobby has become one of the nation’s largest arts and crafts retailers, with more than 500 locations in 41 states. Our children grew up into fine business leaders, and today we run Hobby Lobby together, as a family.
We’re Christians, and we run our business on Christian principles. I’ve always said that the first two goals of our business are (1) to run our business in harmony with God’s laws, and (2) to focus on people more than money. And that’s what we’ve tried to do. We close early so our employees can see their families at night. We keep our stores closed on Sundays, one of the week’s biggest shopping days, so that our workers and their families can enjoy a day of rest. We believe that it is by God’s grace that Hobby Lobby has endured, and he has blessed us and our employees. We’ve not only added jobs in a weak economy, we’ve raised wages for the past four years in a row. Our full-time employees start at 80% above minimum wage. http://beforeitsnews.com/election-2012/2012/11/a-letter-from-hobby-lobby-stores-ceo-2447310.html

DOUBLE-STANDARD OPEN LETTER TO FARAH AND KUPELIAN
Dear Mr Farah and Kupelian,
From: James Kieferdorf <jameskiedallas@yahoo.com>
Subject: Concerned Christian - November 18, 2012 - I have been very concerned that you and WND are promoting the books/tapes of Michael Rood and Joe Kovacs. Both of these men are unorthodox. Many will be duped into thinking that these men are orthodox and Biblical when in fact both deny cardinal teachings of the Historic Christian faith. I have read many of Joe Kovacs articles on WND, and some of his unorthodox statements and teachings in both his books, Shocked By The Bible and The Divine Secret. His teachings and statements are very similar to that of Mr Herbert W. Armstrong and other Armstrong off-shoots. Now I realize why so many Armstrong off-shoots endorse his books.
www.thedivinesecret.com/115-2 Many of these reviewers are Armstrong off-shoots all radical deniers of the Holy Trinity and other orthodox teachings. I noticed John Miller and Jerold Aust.Both of these men are members of the United Church Of God, one of the largest off-shoots of Armstrong. I encourage you, Mr Farah and Kupelian to read the following excellent article concerning some of the unorthodox teachings of Mr Kovacs here. www.thebereancall.org/content/october-2012-extra-1
Concerning the unorthodox teachings of Michael Rood, I would encourage you both to read some of Dr John Juedes excellent exposes. www.abouttheway.org Under Roods picture click on his name. You can also read some other info on Rood by clicking splinter-groups on the left hand column. Dr Juedes is a scholar on the Way International and it's splinter-groups, which Michael Rood was a leader for many years. Although Michael Rood left The Way, did he really leave all of it's unbiblical teachings? Has he really abandoned his anti-Deity of Christ(Messiah) and the Trinity is pagan teachings? I close with Dr. Juedes timely warning concerning Michael Rood, from his article "Michael Rood, Doomsday Prophet" "Michael John Rood is clearly not a reputable Christian minister and Messianic rabbi as he claims to be. Nor is he a reliable source for accurate Bible teaching. His speculative predictions about end time events, archeology, and other topics have led, and will continue to lead, to more disturbance in the minds of those who accept his theories. His adherence to teachings and practices learned in a cult, and his legalism draw people away from the grace of Jesus Christ which the New Testament teaches. People would be wise to neither accept Rood's teachings nor support his ministry" I trust you will do whats right, and stop promoting these men's materials.
Sincerely, James Kieferdorf (email)

8TH CIRCUIT BLOCKS OBAMACARE MANDATE
November 29, 2012 by Tad Cronn - A federal appeals court has granted an injunction blocking the enforcement of the Obamacare mandate that companies must provide insurance coverage for contraceptives and abortifacients in violation of business owners’ religious beliefs. The ruling comes in a lawsuit involving O’Brien Industrial Holdings, a St. Louis, Missouri, company that runs businesses that explore, mine and process refractory and ceramic raw materials.
“By granting our motion, the appeals court blocks the implementation of the HHS mandate and clears the way for our lawsuit to continue – a significant victory for our client,” said Francis Manion, senior counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice. “The order sends a message that the religious beliefs of employers must be respected by the government.” http://godfatherpolitics.com/8314/8th-circuit-blocks-obamacare-mandate/

US CONGRESS IMPORTS 100,000 IMMIGRANTS EVERY 30 DAYS
[Ednote: Since most Mexicans are Catholics, is there a trend to revive the Catholic Church in the U.S.]
December 7, 2012 — Last month, in November our US Congress imported 100,000 legal immigrants into America. This month, December 2012, our 435 citizen-representatives in Congress will bestow another 100,000 legal immigrants upon our shores, into our communities, into our schools and into our job market with green cards. Whether they can speak English, benefit this country with a skill or not, or are compatible with a 21st century culture—doesn't matter. Congress piles them into this country because it's been doing it for the past 47 years. And not 1,000 Americans give it a second glance, sneeze or thought.
Our US congress imports and has imported 100,000 legal immigrants into our country every 30 days, of every month, of every year, of every decade since 1965. That continued importation of an endless armada of humanity added 100 million people to our country in the last 47 years. That same Congress will add another 100 million immigrants to our country within the next three decades, give or take a few years. US Census Bureau projects an addition of 100 million people to our country by 2035, a scant 23 years from now and 138 million by 2050 - a mere 38 years from now. That's a total of all legal, illegal, chain migration and their babies—immigrants landing in America.
Congress continues importing that 100,000 immigrants each month in light of our own 14 million unemployed, crumbling infrastructure, degrading educational systems and our failing cities and erratic environment, i.e., drought, food costs, water shortages and lowering standard of living of the middle class. . . This 10 minute demonstration shows Americans the results of unending mass immigration on the quality of life and sustainability for future generations: in a few words "Mind boggling!" . . .

AHA! JOKES
MICROSOFT GETS CHURCH??
"... MICROSOFT Network, the company's new on-line service, "we will make the sacraments available on-line for the first time" and revive the popular pre-Counter-Reformation practice of selling indulgences, said Gates. "You can get Communion, confess your sins, receive absolution -- even reduce your time in Purgatory -- all without leaving your home." A new software application, MICROSOFT Church, will include a macro language which you can program to download heavenly graces automatically while you are away from your computer...."

APRIL FOOLS: MICROSOFT BIDS TO ACQUIRE CATHOLIC CHURCH
April 1, 2012 VATICAN CITY (AP) - In a joint press conference in St. Peter's Square this morning, MICROSOFT Corp. and the Vatican announced that the Redmond software giant will acquire the Roman Catholic Church in exchange for an unspecified number of shares of MICROSOFT common stock.
"We expect a lot of growth in the religious market in the next five to ten years," said Gates. "The combined resources of MICROSOFT and the Catholic Church will allow us to make religion easier and more fun for a broader range of people." Through the MICROSOFT Network, the company's new on-line service, "we will make the sacraments available on-line for the first time" and revive the popular pre-Counter-Reformation practice of selling indulgences, said Gates. "You can get Communion, confess your sins, receive absolution - even reduce your time in Purgatory - all without leaving your home."
A new software application, MICROSOFT Church, will include a macro language which you can program to download heavenly graces automatically while you are away from your computer. An estimated 17,000 people attended the announcement in St Peter's Square, watching on a 60-foot screen as comedian Don Novello - in character as Father Guido Sarducci - hosted the event, which was broadcast by satellite to 700 sites worldwide.
If the deal goes through, it will be the first time a computer software company has acquired a major world religion. With the acquisition, Pope Benedict XVI will become the senior vice-president of the combined company's new Religious Software Division, while MICROSOFT senior vice-presidents Michael Maples and Steven Ballmer will be invested in the College of Cardinals, said MICROSOFT Chairman Bill Gates.
Pope Benedict XVI said little during the announcement. When Novello chided Gates, "Now I guess you get to wear one of these pointy hats," the crowd roared, but the pontiff's smile seemed strained. The deal grants MICROSOFT exclusive electronic rights to the Bible and the Vatican's prized art collection, which includes works by such masters as Michelangelo and Da Vinci. http://rabble.ca/babble/rabble-reactions/microsoft-acquire-roman-catholic-

THE MAYAN APOCALYPSE: BY THE NUMBERS THE CURRENT CYCLE OF THE MAYAN CALENDAR COMES TO AN END ON FRIDAY..AND SO, SOME THINK, DOES THE WORLD
By Harold Maass | December 18, 2012 - Although most people don't believe that the world will on Dec. 21, there's a camera in space to monitor any potential activity. Many Americans are confident that the world isn't really going to cease to exist on Friday, Dec. 21, the day of the supposed Mayan apocalypse. Still, plenty of people around the world are taking precautions ahead of the day when the Mayan calendar ends and, the theory goes, so does life as we know it. Here, a look at some of the unusual happenings, by the numbers:
100 Members of the "Almighty God" Christian cult in China who have been arrested for pestering people with warnings about the Mayan apocalypse
72 Consecutive days of natural disasters the cultists are telling people will begin on Dec. 21
5 Theories LiveScience found explaining exactly how life on Earth will be snuffed out. We'll be toasted by a massive solar storm; Earth's magnetic poles will flip-flop catastrophically; Planet X (a non-existent "rogue planet") will smash into us; the planets will align in a way that ruins everything (NASA says no planetary alignment is coming, and we've survived past ones); or, there will be some kind of massive global blackout, possibly due to an unprecedented alignment of Earth and Sun (again, NASA says, no).

$100 Price of a fancy margarita — made with DeLeón reposado tequila, Grand Marnier 100 year, agave nectar, and real gold flakes — being offered by Iron Cactus, a Mexican grill in Austin, for people planning to drink like there's no tomorrow
12 Percentage of Americans who believe the end of the world really is upon us
14 Percentage of people in the world who think the planet will be destroyed in our lifetime

CHINA DETAINS 500-PLUS PEOPLE FOR DOOMSDAY RUMORS
Dec 18, 7:33 AM EST - BEIJING (AP) -- Chinese police have detained more than 500 people from a fringe Christian group for spreading rumors about the world's impending end, state media reported Tuesday.
In western China's Qinghai province alone, police arrested more than 400 members from the religious cult group, state-run China Central Television said Tuesday. Police seized leaflets, video discs, books and other apocalyptic materials in the recent arrests of more than 500 people across eight provinces and regions, from the prosperous east coast to less developed western China, state media reports said.
The detentions come ahead of Friday, Dec. 21 - a date some say the Mayans prophesized would be the end of the world and which was the subject of the apocalyptic movie "2012."

ED TARKOWSKI WENT TO BE WITH THE LORD 12.29.2012
[Ednote: There may be some of you who know Ed and the crowd we used to run with in the Promise Keepers days. I was in a meeting in Denver, approximately 1992/1993 just starting out, when I became familiar with Ed's ministry and Ed himself. I too have his articles on our website and hope they will remain as many other teachers have. The family generally carries on. He was our teacher since Discernment Ministries were in infant stages. He showed the way and we will miss his presence on the web and look forward to meeting him in heaven.]
Source: Jewel Grewe Discernment Newsletter - Jan/Feb 2013 - Ed Tarkowski’s official obituary reads: Edward J. Tarkowski, Jr., age 72, went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Saturday, December 29, 2012, after patiently enduring many physical trials throughout his life. He was born in Erie on January 19, 1940. Ed was a teacher of the Word of God and a counselor to many. I [Jewel Grewe] first encountered Ed’s writings in the early 1990s when he was researching education reform and its globalist agenda.
Late in 1992 we met with other education researchers at a retreat in Pennsylvania. Our terrible experiences at this meeting proved to be pivotal for both of us. During and after this meeting we encountered fiery trials and serious testing, the conclusion of which led Ed and his wife Mary, and me and my husband Lynn, to commit to serving the Lord in discernment work.
In many ways Ed was the “father” of us all who now do discernment publishing on the Internet. He had wonderful integrity and he was rock solid standing on the Word of God. He was fearless in exposing the roots of emerging heresies, and published landmark articles exposing the New Age occult entering the church. Ed was computer savvy and seemed undaunted by technology. He set up a bulletin board and later formed an Internet discussion loop. In the mid-1990s the topics included the “laughing revivals” and the Promise Keepers (PK) movement. We published many of Ed’s articles in our magazine The Christian Conscience. The opposition to our work was fierce, and eventually we experienced the betrayal of friends and Internet libel.
The scope of the opposition to biblical truth was a real eye-opener for us. In a pivotal moment in the Spring of 1995, Pastor Bill Randles, Ed and I were scheduled to go on a radio program in conjunction with a discernment conference to warn about the PK agenda. The station manager came storming into the studio minutes before the program, panicking because of a Focus on the Family phone call that threatened to pull their entire programming off the air if we went on the air to talk against PK. The manager explained that this would mean he would lose almost $200,000 worth of programming. This would ruin his station!
We were astonished! Ed encouraged us to go on the air anyway. We did the show, and managed to talk circles around PK without mentioning it precisely by name. We got our point across. Sandy Simpson of Deception in the Church website said of Ed, “He and I got started in discernment issues before the Internet even began with our computer bulletin boards. He was a big help to me when I first started investigating the Toronto Blessing.”
Mike Oppenheimer of Let Us Reason Ministries wrote: “Ed was a major influence in the discerning of the Rodney Browne/Toronto invasion. He had a good biblical understanding of these matters and was one of the first voices to be vocal on these matters. When I listened to him and read his articles I knew he was someone who understood the larger picture. I still have his tapes and recently was going to digitize them. He will be missed until we meet again.”
Warren Smith remembers: “Ed Tarkowski has been an inspiration to me and so many others in the Christian faith. He was a courageous yet kind contributor to the field of Biblical discernment.
When very few were seeing the deception that was creeping into the church, he was there as a watchman and a brother. He will be greatly missed and we will rejoice to see him in heaven.” Ed’s early discernment discussion loop included Jewel Grewe, and in early 1995 when her husband Travers was dying of cancer, Ed’s loop prayed for them. It was because of Ed’s loop that many of us in discernment work online became connected with each other, and many of us remain friends to this day. Ed retired in the early 1990s when his health problems worsened, but he has left us a legacy of articles warning of the apostasy and heresy that was coming into the church. These articles are still very timely and current. You can access most of his articles at: http://www.velocity.net/~edju70/ http://www.velocity.net/~edju70/web/Main.htm

CONSERVATIVE ACTOR CHUCK NORRIS HAS WARNED AMERICA ABOUT FEMA CAMP USE FOR RE-EDUCATION DURING HURRICANE SANDY
[Ednote: I heard today 1.23.2013 that people are still living in tents in 0 degree cold without heat or electricity in hurricane Sandy's territory along the East Coast] Many Christians have felt for years that there is a strong potential for these Camps to be used as Re-education and Detention camps for bigotted - anti- homosexuality principled Believers who believe in the Constitution and Right to Bear Arms, BUT because of the Patriot Act- ANY American can be detained without charges or a trial AND without ANY EVIDENCE - BUT charged as a "SUSPECTED TERRORIST" (Sect 503 b ) ..........
We must pray for God's 'Hedge of Protection' and His discernment and wisdom to 'understand these times like the sons of Issachar and know what to do. (1 Chron 12:32)
Eph 5:15-18 gives us God's plan for us" 15 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, 16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is. 18 And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit,( continually seeking HIM and HIS guidance)
FEMA camp for victims of New Jersey Hurricane Sandy is a freezing tent city operated like a prison. Guards are everywhere, black helicopters patrol the sky, inmates even have to show ID to use the bathrooms. [Apparently, FEMA is following the rule book prepared for these camps which really are designed as prisons, not rescue camps. FEMA is spending $300 million per day on this operation and is asking Congress for a bailout to cover the cost yet it is turning away food and water donations from the private sector. This article, written by Chuck Norris (the Hollywood karate star) is an eye-opener for things to come.] WND 2012 Nov 18 http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/realityzone/UFNhurricaneSandyFEMAcamps.html

PAT ROBERTSON SAYS DINOSAURS PREDATE BIBLE TIME
Friday Church News Notes, December 7, 2012 Dave Cloud - Pat Robertson, head of The 700 Club, told a viewer on November 27 that the earth is older than 6,000 years and that dinosaurs predate biblical history - Pat Robertson Says Dinosaurs Prove Young Earth Creationists Are Wrong (Christian Post, Nov. 28, 2012). Robertson was replying to a Christian mother who is concerned that her sons and husband are abandoning the biblical faith for the lies of science, and she got a horribly-wrong answer from Robertson. Sadly, it is obvious that he is ignorant of this important issue, erring in thinking that evolutionary science is established upon real facts. Evolutionary science is not real science. It is a reinterpretation of the facts of science through the eyes of willful skepticism.
All real science supports the Bible, and this has been documented by many highly qualified scientists .. (that we list in Testimonies of Scientists Who Believe the Bible, (available as a free eBook from www.wayoflife.org. It is essential to understand that evolution does not rate as a theory or even as a hypothesis. As David Stone, Ph.D. physics, says, (Scientific theories involve quantitative modeling, experimental data, and repeated validation by prediction and observation. In any aspect of the philosophy / fantasy of evolution, there is no (theory.(There is no theory for formation of the first protein, first DNA, first cellular sub-structures, first cell, multi-celled creatures, transitions between kinds, etc. Just stories.
There are no genetic data, not a single observed case of mutations and natural selection producing new, complex tissues, organs, or creatures. Evolution is also not a hypothesis, which is a reasonable explanation of observed facts, consistent with known physical laws, employing experimental data and analysis. It has been tested at least to some degree to see whether it holds up under certain conditions. A theory arises when a hypothesis has stood up to repeated tests under a wide variety of conditions and cannot be broken. Evolution warrants neither term. Evolution qualifies merely as a philosophical, even a religious idea, void of scientific support, and intended to replace biblical truth with stories (Dr. Stone, e-mail to David Cloud, August 21, 2011). Pat Robertson mentioned (carbon dating as supposed evidence for an ancient earth, but carbon dating actually points to a young earth. When it comes to the Bible, its account of creation is clear.
There is nothing (poetic (about the account in Genesis 1-2. (An evening and a morning does not add up to millions of years. Way back in 1922, William Jennings Bryan wisely said, It is no light matter to impeach the veracity of the Scriptures in order to accept, not a truth--not even a theory--but a mere hypothesis (In His Image, 1922, p. 94). Bryan was correct in this statement, but he too erred by foolishly giving credence to a (Blong day view of Genesis 1, thus undermining the biblical account. This is exactly what men such as Pat Robertson are doing in our day, and it is shameful and destructive to the cause of Christ. http://www.wayoflife.org

ONE-WORLD CHURCH ON THE MOVE IN RUSSIA
Friday Church News Notes, December 7, 2012, David Cloud - The one-world church made a local appearance in Omsk, Russia last year, in an interfaith meeting attended by Lutherans, Catholics, Baptists, Adventists, and Pentecostals. The meeting was held September 24, 2011, in the Lutheran Church. The news report send to me by a missionary stated, "We are all so different, but united in our God and the Lord Jesus Christ. The evening ended with applause for the glory of our God!" This is a great deception. It is blind emotional mysticism. While they feel deeply that they are glorifying God and they encourage one another in this feeling, in the light of God Word they are actually rebels to the truth and to the cause of Christ.
They are deceived by the master deceiver, who transforms himself into an angel of light and whose ministers transform themselves into the ministers of righteousness (2 Corinthians 11:13-15). God commands His people to earnestly contend for the once-delivered New Testament faith and to mark and avoid those who teach heresies (Jude 3; Romans 16:17). We are to turn away from those who have a form of godliness but deny the power thereof, such as the supernatural new birth and the infallibly-inspired, all-sufficient Bible (2 Timothy 3:5). Not surprisingly, the photo of the ecumenical service shows a Christian rock praise band. Contemporary worship music is one of the major forces at play in creating the apostate one-world church, and those who are messing with it are not wise. http://www.wayoflife.org

CLAIM OBAMA HID 'GAY LIFE' TO BECOME PRESIDENT
Chicago homosexual community shocked he could keep it secret
Published: 09/11/2012 at 9:53 PM by Jerome R. Corsi - A prominent member of Chicago’s homosexual community claims Barack Obama’s participation in the “gay” bar and bathhouse scene was so well known that many who were aware of his lifestyle were shocked when he ran for president and finally won the White House.
“It was preposterous to the people I knew then to think Obama was going to keep his gay life secret,” said Kevin DuJan, who was a gossip columnist in Chicago for various blogs when Obama was living in the city as a community organizer and later a state senator.
“Nobody who knew Obama in the gay bar scene thought he could possibly be president,” said DuJan.
DuJan, founder and editor of the Hillary Clinton-supporting website HillBuzz.org, told WND he has first-hand information from two different sources that “Obama was personally involved in the gay bar scene.”
“If you just hang out at these bars, the older guys who have been frequenting these gay bars for 25 years will tell you these stories,” DuJan said. “Obama used to go to the gay bars during the week, most often on Wednesday, and they said he was very much into older white guys.”
Obama, DuJan said, is “not heterosexual and he’s not bisexual. He’s homosexual.” Continued:

OBAMA IMPEACHMENT BILL NOW IN CONGRESS IS DEAD
Declares president's use of military without approval 'high crime, misdemeanor'
Published: 03/11/2012 at 7:23 PM - by Drew Zahn - Let the president be duly warned. Rep. Walter B. Jones Jr., R-N.C., has introduced a resolution declaring that should the president use offensive military force without authorization of an act of Congress, “it is the sense of Congress” that such an act would be “an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor.” Specifically, Article I, Section 8, of the Constitution reserves for Congress alone the power to declare war, a restriction that has been sorely tested in recent years, including Obama’s authorization of military force in Libya.
In an exclusive WND column, former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo claims that Jones introduced his House Concurrent Resolution 107 in response to startling recent comments from Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta.
“This week it was Secretary of Defense Panetta’s declaration before the Senate Armed Services Committee that he and President Obama look not to the Congress for authorization to bomb Syria but to NATO and the United Nations,” Tancredo writes. “This led to Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C., introducing an official resolution calling for impeachment should Obama take offensive action based on Panetta’s policy statement, because it would violate the Constitution.”
Read “The Case for Impeachment” and know why Obama has got to go before America is done for …
Get the bumper sticker that tells everyone to Impeach Obama!
In response to questions from Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., over who determines the proper and legal use of the U.S. military, Panetta said, “Our goal would be to seek international permission and we would … come to the Congress and inform you and determine how best to approach this, whether or not we would want to get permission from the Congress – I think those are issues we would have to discuss as we decide what to do here.” Continued:

UBS TO PAY $1.5 BILLION OVER RATE-RIGGING SCANDAL
By JOHN HEILPRIN - From Associated Press - December 19, 2012 3:59 AM EST GENEVA (AP) — Switzerland's UBS AG agreed Wednesday to pay some $1.5 billion in fines to international regulators following a probe into the rigging of a key global interest rate.
In admitting to fraud, Switzerland's largest bank became the second bank, after Britain's Barclays PLC, to settle over the rate-rigging scandal. The fine, which will be paid to authorities in the U.S., Britain and Switzerland, also comes just over a week after HSBC PLC agreed to pay nearly $2 billion for alleged money laundering.
The settlement caps a tough year for UBS and the reputation of the global banking industry. As well as being ensnared in the industry-wide investigation into alleged manipulations of the benchmark LIBOR interest rate, short for London interbank offered rate, UBS has seen its reputation suffer in a London trial into a multibillion dollar trading scandal and ongoing tax evasion probes.

RUSSIAN FORCES TAKE SYRIAN CHEMICAL, BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS UNDER CONTROL
Saturday, December 22, 2012 The chemical warfare threat looming over Syria’s civil war and its neighbors has taken an epic turn with the announcement by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov Saturday, Dec. 22, that “the Syrian government has “consolidated its chemical weapons in one or two locations amid a rebel onslaught and they are under control for the time being.” He added that Russia, “which has military advisers training Syria’s military, has kept close watch over its chemical arsenal.”
DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources report: The Russian foreign minister’s statement was a message to Washington that the transfer of Syria’s weapons of mass destruction to one or two protected sites was under Russian control. This had removed the danger of them falling into the hands of the al Qaeda-affiliated Jabhat al-Nusra ,which had come ominously close Friday, Dec. 21, when the Islamists spearheaded a Syrian rebel assault for the capture of the al-Safira military complex and Bashar Assad’s chemical and biological stores.
Lavrov did not go into detail about how this arsenal was removed and to which locations. But his reference to “Russian military advisers training Syria’s military” clearly indicated that Russian forces were directly involved in removing the WMD out of the reach of the Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists.
His assertion that they were “under control” indicated that Russia was also involved in safeguarding them.
DEBKAfile’s Moscow sources add: Russia’s military intervention in the Syrian civil war achieved four objectives:
1. The prevention of Western or Israel military action for seizing control of Syria’s chemical and biological weapons arsenals;
2. The prevention of Western military intervention in the civil war behind the forces dedicated to the removal of Bashar Assad. The Russian military is now engaged in the dual mission of guarding his WMD arsenal and his regime;
3. The Russian military presence in Syria delivers a heavy swipe to the rebels;
4. Russia’s intervention and military presence have laid the groundwork for Moscow and Washington to work out an accord that will bring Syria’s civil war to an end.

BAYOU CORNE SINKHOLE UPDATE
[See Jamuary newsletter for the latest devastating update now called SALT DOME COLLAPSE.]
2012 December 24, Monday - Bayou Corne, Louisiana - 19 weeks after our first flyover August 13 (see those photos and videos here), and we are seeing quite a different situation!
The trees that were just starting to be impacted by a small pool of liquid are no longer visible at all, and the hole itself looks at least twice as large in diameter as it was back in August. But everywhere the water levels seem higher, so it's hard for us to tell whether the dramatic sight change is because the sinkhole has really grown so much larger or everything is covered more by water than it was last August. In any case, it's not a pretty sight, and homes in the vicinity do not look like they'll be homes again anytime soon.
Check out these paired photos -- the ones on the left were taken last August 13, 2012; the ones on the right were taken today, December 24, 2012, a bit longer than four months later. (Includes Youtube and graphics)

THE CHINESE WANT GUN CONTROL -- IN AMERICA
Selwyn Duke - December 21, 2012 - Canada Free Press - Who’d have guessed it? When the Chinese aren’t busy effecting forced abortions, persecuting political dissidents, sending contaminated products to our shores, or shipping us other junk that malfunctions a month after you buy it, they concern themselves with our well-being. In an article published by the Chinese government-front media outlet Xinhua, the Beijing regime calls on the Obama administration to use the Sandy Hook massacre as a pretext for more gun control. The outlet writes, “Every time a tragedy occurs, there are renewed appeals for gun regulation. However, the calls disappointingly always fail.” Gee, we wouldn’t want to disappoint the Chinese fascists again now, would we?
And that’s a good approximation of what they are. When you institute free-market reforms (which is smart), become the most rapacious, money-hungry, product-pirating vulture capitalists on the planet, but yet maintain an iron-fist grip on the private sector and social sphere, you don’t with credibility get to call yourselves socialists or communists. (This isn’t to imply that communism is better, just different.) Take note of this, Jeffrey Immelt and the rest of you dim bulbs who say things such as Chinese “state run communism” “works” a bit. What works for them is being the most cutthroat, playing-for-keeps economic player in the game. They’re communists like Bill Clinton is a celibate.
Back to the issue at hand, Xinhua writes that the Newtown victims’ “blood and tears demand no delay for the U.S. gun control,” that “with no re-election pressure, President Obama is currently in the best position to promote it” and concludes with, “If Obama wants to take practical measures to control guns, he has to make preparation for a protracted war and considerable political cost.” Wow, to paraphrase the Rodney Dangerfield character in Back to School, “They really care. About what I have no idea.” Continued: http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/51945

400,000 SIGN GUN CONTROL PETITIONS
December 22, 2012 WASHINGTON: US President Barack Obama on Friday vowed to take action to stop gun violence in response to online petitions signed by more than 400,000 people after last week’s elementary school massacre. More than 400,000 people have signed “We the People” petitions on the White House’s website calling for action on gun violence, making it one of the most popular issues since the launch of the site, a White House official said. One such petition set the record for being the fastest ever to reach 25,000 signatures, the official said.
“In the days since the heartbreaking tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, hundreds of thousands of you, from all 50 states, signed petitions asking us to take serious steps to address the epidemic of gun violence in this country,” Obama said in an online video. “We hear you.” “I will do everything in my power as president to advance these efforts, because if there’s even one thing we can do as a country to protect our children, we have a responsibility to try,” Obama said in the video. “But as I said earlier this week I can’t do it alone. I need your help.” Continued:

STUNNING NRA PRESS CONFERENCE BLAMES SHOOTING ON MEDIA, VIDEO GAMES, MOVIES AND CALLS ON CONGRESS TO PUT COP IN EVERY SCHOOL
by Brett LoGiurato, Business Insider, December 21, 2012 - In what was a rather stunning, half-hour press conference, the National Rifle Association called on Congress to put armed police officers in every school in America. The highly-anticipated press conference came one week after the tragedy in Newtown, Conn. last week.
CEO Wayne LaPierre blamed many things in his press conference for the influx of mass shootings in the U.S. — everything from gun-free school zones, the media, movies, violent video games, hurricanes, and a lack of government funding.
"The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun," LaPierre said. At the same time, he deflected any criticism the organization has taken over the past week, saying the organization "remained respectfully silent." He was interrupted by two separate protestors at the event, after which the NRA did not take questions. Continued: http://www.businessinsider.com/nra-press-conference-gun-control-sandy-hook-school-

BUDGET CUTS AND SPECIAL ED COSTS DOOM ALL-DAY KINDERGARTEN AT SANDY HOOK
The Newtown Board of Education voted Wednesday not to implement all-day K for the 2012-13 school year.
By Fred Musante Email the author July 20, 2012 A member of the Newtown Board of Education said the decision Wednesday to cancel plans to start all-day kindergarten in the local schools was forced by unexpected special education costs. School board member Cody McCubbin said the board was facing a shortfall of about $200,000 from what it needed to start all-day kindergarten. Keeping the program for the 2012-13 school year would have required cutting other existing programs from the budget. The board recently learned that new special needs students would increase the school district’s special education expenses by about $100,000, and School Supt. Janet Robinson told them that school officials would hold educational evaluation meetings for other new special needs students this summer, possibly raising those costs even more.

2 MASS SHOOTINGS CONNECTED TO LIBOR SCANDAL?
UBS Libor Manipulation Accord Said to Be as Much as $1.6 Billion

PETER LANZA'S BID RIGGING CONNECTION (MUST READ PAGE ALL THE WAY)

December 16, 2012 - The father of Connecticut school shooter Adam Lanza, Peter Lanza, was the tax director for General Electric, a corporation that paid -0- taxes on 14.2 billion dollars in profits last year. According to Fabian Liberty, Peter Lanza was scheduled to testify in the ongoing global LIBOR scandal. In what could only be described an amazing coincidence, the father of Colorado Batman shooter James Holmes, Robert Holmes, was also a LIBOR witness in his position with FICO. According to the link at FICO, Robert Holmes was a ‘Fraud Scientist’.
From Fabain4Liberty: The father of Newtown Connecticut school shooter Adam Lanza is Peter Lanza who is a VP and Tax Director at GE Financial. The father of Aurora Colorado movie theater shooter James Holmes is Robert Holmes, the lead scientist for the credit score company FICO. Both men were to testify before the US Sentate in the ongoing LIBOR scandal. The London Interbank Offered Rate, known as Libor, is the average interest rate at which banks can borrow from each other. 16 international banks have been implicated in this ongoing scandal, accused of rigging contracts worth trillions of dollars. HSBC has already been fined $1.9 billion and three of their low level traders arrested. Ladies and gentlemen, we have a motive and a link. This coincidence is impossible to overlook. Two mass shootings connected to LIBOR. http://cybertribenetwork.blogspot.com/2012/12/video-2-mass-shootings-

COLORADO THEATER SHOOTING VENUE REOPENING TONIGHT WITH CEREMONY HONORING VICTIMS
1 hour ago (1.17.2013)| The Wrap - The Aurora, Colorado movie theater where 12 people were killed last July during a shooting rampage is reopening Thursday with a private ceremony honoring the victims. Cinemark's "evening of remembrance" at the renovated theater -- now named the Century Aurora instead of Century 16 -- comes nearly 6 months after James Holmes allegedly opened fire on an audience watching a July 20 midnight screening of "The Dark Knight Rises." About 70 people were also wounded in the attack. Also read: Colorado Shooting Victims' Families Criticize Cinemark for Invitations to Theater's Reopening Although Aurora mayor continued:

ARKANSAS TOWN PLANS TO BEGIN MARTIAL LAW ID CHECKS OF EVERYONE IN PUBLIC
Posted by Jacob Sloan on December 21, 2012 - The mayor explains that normal constitutional protections don’t apply, because, due to the high rate of property crime, anyone walking outdoors in his city is a criminal suspect. Via Russia Today: In order to curb the rising crime rate in this town of barely 25,000, Mayor Mike Gaskill and Police Chief Todd Stovall endorsed a plan to send cops dressed in full-fledged SWAT gear and equipped with AR-15s into downtown Paragould starting in 2013. What’s more, Stovall says, is he intends to have the cops collecting identification from everyone and anyone. “If you’re out walking, we’re going to stop you, ask why you’re out walking, check for your ID,” the Daily Press reports him saying during last week’s meeting. “We will be asking for picture identification. We will be ascertaining where the subject lives and what they are doing in the area. We will be keeping a record of those we contact.” Continued: http://www.disinfo.com/2012/12/arkansas-town-enacts-martial-law-id-checks-of-everyone-in-public/

DENVER - A KEY REPUBLICAN SENATOR IS SAYING GOV. JOHN HICKENLOOPER HAS FLIP FLOPPED ON GUN CONTROL AND HAS OPENED THE DOOR TO DISCUSSIONS THAT MIGHT BAN ASSAULT WEAPONS IN COLORADO
December 23, 2012 ABC 7News - The Democratic governor's office told CALL7's Theresa Marchetta Hickenlooper "has not endorsed any changes to gun laws, but he welcomes the discussion."
Hours earlier, Hickenlooper comments in The Associated Press stirred legislators, catching some by surprise.
"When you look at what happened in Aurora, a great deal of that damage was from the large magazine on the AR-15 (rifle)," Hickenlooper said. "I think we need to have a discussion and say, 'Where is this appropriate?'"
The remarks seemed to contrast with Hickenlooper's thoughts in the days after the Aurora movie theater slayings that killed 12 and wounded dozens of others this summer. He told CNN at the time: "If there were no assault weapons available -- there were no this or no that -- this guy's going to find something. Right?"
Hickenlooper added, "And, you know, if it wasn't one weapon, it would have been another."
There is more than just debate in the air now. Two legislators tell CALL7 they anticipate several bills restricting gun ownership to be introduced in January. Continued: http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/call7-investigators/

BREAKING: ANTI-NDAA BILL INTRODUCED IN NEVADA
Posted on Dec 19, 2012 in PANDA Campaign - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Reno, NV – December 19th, 2012 - Contact: - Chris Corbett - pandaunitereno@yahoo.com
The Nevada Chapters of PANDA (People Against the National Defense Authorization Act, the NDAA) announce the introduction of BDR 728, The Nevada Liberty Preservation Act
The Bill, sponsored by Nevada State Senator Don Gustavson, will be part of the 2013 Nevada State Legislative session which begins in February. Passage of the Nevada Liberty Preservation Act will demonstrate the Legislature’s commitment to Constitutional Law and Individual Liberty by restoring the right to due process to all persons in Nevada. The 2012 National Defense Authorization Act was overwhelmingly passed by Congress and signed into law by President Barack Obama on December 31, 2011. The 2012 NDAA declares the United States to be a battlefield in the war on terror and Section 1021 & 1022 authorize the indefinite detention, without charge or trial, of all persons on US soil suspected of terrorist activity or accused of ‘belligerent behavior’. This violates at least 23 Articles of and Amendments to both the US and Nevada Constitutions.
PANDA, a national, nonpartisan, grass roots organization, founded in January 2012, is committed to the nullification of the NDAA’s unconstitutional authorizations at the state and local levels of government. PANDA started in Bowling Green, OH and has since expanded to 30+ states with over 90 chapters nationwide. Continued:

GOVERNMENT TO 'EXIT' GM OWNERSHIP
Rick Moran - December 20, 2012 - Detroit News: the stock buyback by GM will cost the taxpayers billions.
The Obama administration said Wednesday it will sell 200 million shares - or 40 percent of its remaining stake in General Motors Co. - back to the automaker and announced plans to completely exit the Detroit automaker by March 2014. The Detroit automaker said it will purchase 200 million shares of GM stock held by Treasury for $5.5 billion - or $27.50 per share - nearly $2 above the stock's closing price on Tuesday. GM shares jumped sharply on the news and were up 7.5 percent to $27.36, or $1.90, early afternoon in very heavy trading.
The U.S. Treasury, after more than a year of refusing to say when it might start selling its remaining stake in GM, said it will announce a written plan in January to shed its remaining 300 million shares over the next 12 to 15 months, likely in a series of small stock sales.

AS LONG AS WE ARE BANNING STUFF...
Michael Geer - December 20, 2012 - American Thinker - If the 2nd Amendment is responsible for Newtown, Conn. then let's have a look at what really kills Americans. Guilty and innocents alike. Let's legislatively ban the obviously responsible parties in each category of unnecessary death. (using Left-think)
Smoking related deaths - 434,000+
We have to immediately punish all tobacco retailers for these deaths. And the people who smoke tobacco. And who manufacture matches and cigarette lighters. In fact, we must immediately ban all forms of combustible weeds.
Obesity related deaths - 300,000+
Ban all food. Now. It's nearly too late.
Medical mistake-related deaths - 225,000+
Appoint VP Joe Biden to Chair a Blue Ribbon Panel to determine what must be done to prevent medical mistakes, Funeral Directors cheer. Casket manufacturer stock prices soar.
Poor or non-existent health care-related deaths - 100,000+
Know who's getting your healthcare? Prisoners, illegal aliens and welfare recipients. That's why Grandpa can't have nicer catheters.
Vehicle related deaths and costs - 42,000+
Maybe this is the secret to Government Motors, et al. Eliminate vehicles and thus eliminate unplanned death. Note I said unplanned death.
The top five accidental death categories are - Choking (2,500 p/annum) Fire (2,700 p/annum) Falling (25,000 p/annum) Poisoning (39,000 p/annum) and vehicle (already listed) Obviously we must rid our culture of things that choke, any means of combustion, we must all slither on our bellies like snakes to keep from falling and well, as to poisoning? Hard to reconcile with the Left's predilection for drugs and illegal drugs. Continued:

SHOOTERS DESIRE TO DIE RATHER THAN HARM ANOTHER
Why? Because everyone of them has made the statement that they wish someone would have stopped them (with a bullet if necessary) from doing what they did while having this toxic reaction that led them to such out of character violence where they could not stop themselves and yet did not want anyone hurt. Do I believe those feelings were any different for the school shooters from Eric Harris & Dylan Kleebold to Adam Lanza? NO!!! I have always said that they would have been the ones most shocked by their own actions as they reached the other side and were able to realize what they had done because of these deadly drugs.

VACCINE BOMBSHELL LEAKED CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENT EXPOSES 36 INFANTS DEAD AFTER THIS VACCINE - CHEMICAL COCKTAIL
Dec 16th, 2012 - By Christina England - A report to the government noted babies died after receiving a vaccine. A confidential GlaxoSmithKline document recently leaked to the press exposed that within a two-year period, a total of 36 infants died after receiving the 6-in-1 vaccine, Infanrix Hexa. [1] According to the website Initiative Citoyenne [2] who reported the news, the 1271 page document revealed that GlaxoSmithKline received a total of 1,742 reports of adverse reactions between October 23, 2009, and October 22, 2011, including 503 serious adverse reactions and 36 deaths. Initiative Citoyenne stated: “It’s not that 14 deaths were recorded by GSK between October 2009 and end in October 2011 as we had originally calculated but 36 (14 from 2010 to 2011 and 22 from 2009 to 2010). In addition to these 36 deaths at least 37 other deaths (sudden death mainly), bringing the total to at least 73 deaths since the launch of the vaccine in 2000, and again, this concerns only the death by sudden death, no further recovery of under-reporting.” Continued: http://vactruth.com/2012/12/16/36-infants-dead-after-vaccine/

(AP Photo - U.S. Navy) By KIMBERLY DOZIER - From Associated Press - December 23, 2012 5:47 PM EST
WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. military officials are investigating the apparent suicide of a Navy SEAL commander in Afghanistan. Navy SEAL Cdr. Job W. Price, 42, of Pottstown, Pa., died Saturday of a non-combat-related injury while supporting stability operations in Uruzgan Province, Afghanistan. A U.S. military official said the death "appears to be the result of suicide." The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the death is still being investigated.
"The Naval Special Warfare family is deeply saddened by the loss of our teammate," said Capt. Robert Smith, Commander of Naval Special Warfare Group Two, which manages all Virginia-based Navy SEAL teams. "We extend our condolences, thoughts and prayers to the family, friends, and NSW community during this time of grieving."
"As we mourn the loss and honor the memory of our fallen teammate, those he served with will continue to carry out the mission," Smith added Sunday. A U.S. military official confirmed Price was from Virginia Beach, Va.-based SEAL Team 4, which is part of the mission to train Afghan local police to stave off the Taliban in remote parts of Afghanistan. Price is survived by a wife and a daughter. http://www.ktbs.com/news/Military-Death-of-SEAL-commander-is-suicide/-/144844/

RUSSIAN PARLIAMENT ENDORSES ANTI-US ADOPTION BILL
December 26, 2012 - Russian President Vladimir Putin gestures while speaking during a meeting in Moscow, Russia, Monday Dec. 10, 2012. - By NATALIYA VASILYEVA, MOSCOW (AP) — The upper chamber of Russia's parliament on Wednesday unanimously voted in favor of a measure banning Americans from adopting Russian children. It now goes to President Vladimir Putin to sign or turn down.
All 143 members of the Federation Council present voted to support the bill, which has sparked criticism from both the United States and from Russian activists who say it victimizes children by depriving them of the chance to escape often-dismal orphanages.
The bill is one part of a larger measure by angry lawmakers retaliating against a recently signed U.S. law that calls for sanctions against Russians deemed to be human rights violators. Putin hasn't committed to signing the bill, but has referred to it as a legitimate response to the new U.S. law. Some top government officials, including the foreign minister, have spoken flatly against it, arguing the measure would be in violation of Russia's constitution and international obligations. But Senator Mikhail Margelov, chairman of the Council's foreign affairs committee, referred to the bill as "a natural and a long overdue response" to the U.S. legislation.
"Children must be placed in Russian families, and this is a cornerstone issue for us," he said.
Several people with posters protesting the bill were detained outside the Council before the vote. "Children get frozen in the Cold War," one poster read. There are about 740,000 children without parental custody in Russia, according to UNICEF. More than 60,000 Russian children have been adopted in the United States in the past 20 years.
The bill is named in honor of Dima Yakovlev, a Russian toddler who was adopted by Americans and then died in 2008 after his father left him in a car in broiling heat for hours. The father was found not guilty of involuntary manslaughter. Russian lawmakers argue that by banning adoptions to the U.S. they would be protecting children and encouraging adoptions inside Russia.

CHECKING THE COSTS OF HOMELAND SECURITY
Published: December 9, 2012 - Andrew Rosenthal - NYT - It was no surprise that a fierce budget hawk like Senator Tom Coburn, Republican of Oklahoma, pounced on ridiculous grants doled out by the Department of Homeland Security supposedly to help local police and fire departments prepare for terrorist attacks. Mr. Coburn’s recent report on the department’s decade-long, $7 billion program, called the Urban Areas Security Initiative, offers many depressing examples of locally misspent money.
.There was an armored car in New Hampshire whose duties included patrolling the annual pumpkin festival. Car-bomb barriers and surveillance cameras, purchased by authorities in Peoria, Ariz., to protect spring-training fans. License plate reading machines in Louisiana used to track car thieves.

And $1,000 fees for first responders to attend a “zombie Apocalypse” demonstration at a counterterrorism conference in California to learn how to handle chaotic events, with actors playing the living dead.

A NEW JOB DESCRIPTION FOR TREASURY SECRETARY
By TERESA TRITCH - Published: December 15, 2012 - When President-elect Barack Obama selected Timothy Geithner to be his Treasury secretary in November 2008, the financial system was in full-blown crisis and the economy was in free fall. Given the urgency of the situation and his own inexperience in economic matters, Mr. Obama badly needed seasoned help, most prominently at the Treasury Department. In choosing Mr. Geithner, then the head of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and a prominent player in the bailouts that year, Mr. Obama left no doubt that the job at hand was to revive the financial markets.
Four years later, the financial crisis has dissipated and the president himself has become more sure-footed in economic policies and politics. But his choice of a Treasury secretary to replace Mr. Geithner, who has said he does not wish to stay for a second term, is still extraordinarily important. The economy, though no longer in extremis, is still weak; in the current quarter, growth is expected to slow to about 1 percent, not nearly enough to spur job creation and reduce unemployment. This, in turn, presents a fundamentally different challenge for President Obama, and for the person he chooses. The task now is to revive growth and create jobs, and for that Mr. Obama needs a secretary who will champion and execute an agenda in which the interests of Wall Street give way, at long last, to the public need for broad and shared prosperity.
On budget issues, that means a secretary who can explain to the public — and sell to Congress — the need for lasting, substantial investment in infrastructure and education. In the near term, there must be a push for more safety-net spending, both to preserve and create jobs and to position the economy for stronger growth. The widespread notion that such spending is incompatible with a healthy budget is a triumph of bad politics over sound policy, and it will fall to the secretary to counter the calls for premature austerity with a strategy to couple needed spending with deficit reduction that takes hold as the economy recovers.

DON'T BLAME AUTISM FOR NEWTOWN
By PRISCILLA GILMAN - Published: December 17, 2012 - LAST Wednesday night I listened to Andrew Solomon, the author of the extraordinary new book “Far From the Tree,” talk about the frequency of filicide in families affected by autism. Two days later, I watched the news media attempt to explain a matricide and a horrific mass murder in terms of the killer’s supposed autism.... Underlying much of this misreporting is the pernicious and outdated stereotype that people with autism lack empathy. Children with autism may have trouble understanding the motivations and nonverbal cues of others, be socially naïve and have difficulty expressing their emotions in words, but they are typically more truthful and less manipulative than neurotypical children and are often people of great integrity. They can also have a strong desire to connect with others and they can be intensely empathetic — they just attempt those connections and express that empathy in unconventional ways. My child with autism, in fact, is the most empathetic and honorable of my three wonderful children.
Additionally, a psychopathic, sociopathic or homicidal tendency must be separated out from both autism and from mental illness more generally. While autistic children can sometimes be aggressive, this is usually because of their frustration at being unable to express themselves verbally, or their extreme sensory sensitivities. Moreover, the form their aggression takes is typically harmful only to themselves. In the very rare cases where their aggression is externally directed, it does not take the form of systematic, meticulously planned, intentional acts of violence against a community.
And if study after study has definitively established that a person with autism is no more likely to be violent or engage in criminal behavior than a neurotypical person, it is just as clear that autistic people are far more likely to be the victims of bullying and emotional and physical abuse by parents and caregivers than other children. So there is a sad irony in making autism the agent or the cause rather than regarding it as the target of violence. Whole excellent article:

AFTER RECESSION, MORE YOUNG ADULTS ARE LIVING ON THE STREET
SEATTLE — Duane Taylor was studying the humanities in community college and living in his own place when he lost his job in a round of layoffs. Then he found, and lost, a second job. And a third.
Matthew Ryan Williams for The New York Times - Anna Wiley says she has spent the night at Roots, a young adult shelter in Seattle, instead of going home because her parents are also in dire straits.
Read All Comments (1009) » Now, with what he calls “lowered standards” and a tenuous new position at a Jack in the Box restaurant, Mr. Taylor, 24, does not make enough to rent an apartment or share one. He sleeps on a mat in a homeless shelter, except when his sister lets him crash on her couch. “At any time I could lose my job, my security,” said Mr. Taylor, explaining how he was always the last hired and the first fired. “I’d like to be able to support myself. That’s my only goal.”
Across the country, tens of thousands of underemployed and jobless young people, many with college credits or work histories, are struggling to house themselves in the wake of the recession, which has left workers between the ages of 18 and 24 with the highest unemployment rate of all adults.
Those who can move back home with their parents — the so-called boomerang set — are the lucky ones. But that is not an option for those whose families have been hit hard by the economy, including Mr. Taylor, whose mother is barely scraping by while working in a laundromat. Without a stable home address, they are an elusive group that mostly couch surfs or sleeps hidden away in cars or other private places, hoping to avoid the lasting stigma of public homelessness during what they hope will be a temporary predicament.
These young adults are the new face of a national homeless population, one that poverty experts and case workers say is growing. Yet the problem is mostly invisible. Most cities and states, focusing on homeless families, have not made special efforts to identify young adults, who tend to shy away from ordinary shelters out of fear of being victimized by an older, chronically homeless population. The unemployment rate and the number of young adults who cannot afford college “point to the fact there is a dramatic increase in homelessness” in that age group, said Barbara Poppe, the executive director of the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness.

by PinkNews.co.uk Staff Writer for PinkNews.co.uk 3 January 2013, 7:08pm Democrat Tammy Baldwin has become the first openly gay politician to be sworn into the US Senate. Earlier today, the junior senator for Wisconsin swore the oath of office to US Vice-President Joe Biden. In her election night speech last November, Ms Baldwin said: ““I’m very aware that I will have the honor to be the first woman senator from Wisconsin. And I’m well aware that I will be the first openly gay member of the United States Senate.”
Chuck Wolfe of the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund said today: “LGBT Americans have finally broken through a glass ceiling that held firm for more than two centuries. “This is real progress – a victory for us all. And this is a moment to smile, celebrate and raise a glass to toast a record number of out federal lawmakers.”
After announcing her run for the US Senate in September of last year, Joe Solmonese of the Human Rights Campaign said: “Tammy Baldwin’s candidacy for the US Senate is monumental for both the state of Wisconsin and the country’s LGBT community”.

Collins’s presence underscores the ironic dynamic behind Warren’s election as senator: Had Senate Republicans not vowed to block her nomination as head of the consumer bureau, she never would have run for elective office... Warren will take a seat alongside Shelby not just in the Senate chamber, but as a member of the Senate Banking Committee.

29 SIGNS THAT THE ELITE ARE TRANSFORMING SOCIETY INTO A TOTAL DOMINATION CONTROL GRID
Written By Michael Snyder - The elite want to tightly control almost everything that we do, say and think. When most people think of “tyranny”, they think of thugs with guns and little dictators running around barking orders at everyone. But that is not how the elite are accomplishing their goals these days. They want us to actually believe that we have freedom and that we are choosing our own leaders, but in the background they are exerting “soft power” in a way that is absolutely ruthless. They fund the political campaigns of our politicians, they own nearly all of the large corporations and financial institutions, they exert very tight control over the media and their agenda is being promoted through the education systems of virtually every nation on the planet. What the elite are doing is not illegal. In fact, they use the government and they use the law to accomplish their purposes. That is one reason why the elite love big government. For them, it is an instrument of control. The larger the government is, the easier it is to watch, track, monitor and control the rest of us. As you read this, a “total domination control grid” is being constructed all around us that is far beyond anything that George Orwell ever dreamed of. This system is advancing on hundreds of different fronts, and it is getting tighter and more restrictive with each passing day. We may think that we still have a certain degree of liberty, but if you start doing things that the system does not like, the system has a way of getting you back in line very quickly.

PRISON LABOR BOOMS IN US AS LOW-COST INMATES BRING BILLIONS
Truther December 10, 2012 - US breeds a Chinese-style inmate labor scheme on its own soil. Both state and some of the biggest private companies are now enjoying the fruits of a cheap and readily available work force, with tens of millions of dollars spent by private prisons to keep their jails full.

SOME HOSPITAL EMPLOYEES DISMISSED, SUSPENDED AFTER REFUSING MANDATORY FLU SHOTS
December 05, 2012 - BY WILLIAM WEIR, bweir@courant.com - Despite resistance from some employees, more state hospitals this year are making flu shots mandatory for all workers, and some have even suspended or dismissed a handful who have not complied. This year, 19 of the 29 acute care hospitals in the state require that all employees get flu vaccinations. It's a sharp increase from last year, when there were only five. State health officials did not name the hospitals. There has been dissent from some employees.
At Waterbury Hospital, dozens of employees initially refused to get a flu shot, but after being threatened with unpaid suspension and possible dismissal, only two full-time employees had failed to get a vaccination or exemption by Wednesday. They have been suspended. "There are a few hardcore people who are holding out, and that's their prerogative," said Steven Aronin, chief of infectious diseases at Waterbury Hospital. If those employees get the shot, he said, "they can come back immediately." According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, hospitals that require flu shots for employees had 95 percent compliance, while those that didn't had vaccination rates of 68 percent. http://articles.courant.com/2012-12-05/news/hc-flu-shot-hospital-20121205_1_mandatory-

FLUORIDE: A CHRONOLOGICAL HISTORY
Fluoride is THE main ingredient in rat poison.
Fluoride is THE main ingredient in Sarin nerve gas.
Fluoride is THE main ingredient in Prozac.
Fluoride destroys the brain (accumulates the pineal gland), the bones, the organs and causes cancer.
Hitler and Stalin used it in concentration camps and gulags as mass control instrument to make the prisoners docile.
Guess why fluoride is really added to your drinking water?
Over 170 million people, or 67% of the United States population drink fluoridated water. 43 of the 50 largest cities in the country are fluoridated.
After reading this you will understand what water fluoridation and fluoride containing anti-depressants like Prozac are all about. Also take a close look how many times it has been scientifically proven that fluoride damages DNA http://www.infiniteunknown.net/2010/10/31/fluoride-a-chronological-history/

US STARTS TO BAN BOTTLED WATER
January 6, 2013 - Source: The Watchers - A law passed by the town of Concord, in the US state of Massachusetts, went into effect with the New Year, making single-serving bottles of water illegal. However, Coke or other soft drinks are exempt, it only applies to non-sparkling, unflavored drinking water. The ban is intended to encourage use of tap water and curb the worldwide problem of plastic pollution. Sanctions for now include first time warning and a second offend will be fined $25, and $50 thereafter.
Developed nations such as the US spend billions of dollars buying bottled water and the plastic bottles that this water comes in create billions of pounds of oil based trash destined to live out a thousand year lifespan in a trash dump. In one year, 318 billion bottles of water are consumed. Major cities in America have made recycling available but only 1 in 5 water bottles ever gets recycled – 4 go to the trash dump to create about 3 billion pounds of waste just from all of the discarded plastic. This leads to an unseen global waste catastrophe. Many researchers and environmental organizations now list plastic as the number one threat to our marine environments around the planet. Plastic bags and other plastic garbage thrown into the ocean kill as many as 1,000,000 sea creatures every year!

GOVERNOR TO SUE NCAA OVER PENN STATE SANCTIONS
By PETER JACKSON Associated Press - January 1, 2013 - US News HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Gov. Tom Corbett said Tuesday he plans to sue the NCAA in federal court over stiff sanctions imposed against Penn State University in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal. The Republican governor scheduled a Wednesday news conference on the Penn State campus in State College to announce the filing in U.S. District Court in Harrisburg.
The sanctions, which were agreed to by the university in July, included a $60 million fine that would be used nationally to finance child abuse prevention grants. The sanctions also included a four-year bowl game ban for the university's marquee football program, reduced football scholarships and the forfeiture of 112 wins.
The governor's office announced the news conference late Tuesday afternoon. His spokesman did not respond to repeated calls and emails seeking to confirm a Sports Illustrated story that cited anonymous sources saying a lawsuit was imminent.

'DEAR ABBY' ADVICE COLUMNIST DIES AT AGE 94
USA Today: 1:55p.m. EST January 17, 2013MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Pauline Friedman Phillips, who under the name of Abigail Van Buren, wrote the long-running "Dear Abby" advice column that was followed by millions of newspaper readers throughout the world, has died. She was 94.
Publicist Gene Willis of Universal Uclick said Phillips died Wednesday after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease.
Phillips' column competed for decades with the advice column of Ann Landers, written by her twin sister, Esther Friedman Lederer. Their relationship was stormy in their early adult years, but later they regained the close relationship they had growing up in Sioux City, Iowa.
The two columns differed in style. Ann Landers responded to questioners with homey, detailed advice. Abby's replies were often flippant one-liners.
Phillips admitted that her advice changed over the years. When she started writing the column, she was reluctant to advocate divorce:
"I always thought that marriage should be forever," she explained. "I found out through my readers that sometimes the best thing they can do is part. If a man or woman is a constant cheater, the situation can be intolerable. Especially if they have children. When kids see parents fighting, or even sniping at each other, I think it is terribly damaging."

WAKE ME UP WHEN MEN GET PREGNANT
Biological transhumanism starts the 21st century on the wrong foot.
Tim Cavanaugh from the March 2010 issue - 10.25.2012 - “Gene therapy has had a tough decade, because of poor safety outcomes,” says Ramez Naam, a nanotechnology researcher, winner of the H.G. Wells Award for Contributions to Transhumanism, and author of the 2005 book More Than Human: Embracing the Promise of Biological Enhancement. Naam is referring to the case of Jesse Gelsinger, an 18-year-old suffering from an inherited liver disorder who died in 1999 when an experimental genetic treatment by University of Pennsylvania researchers caused a traumatic immune reaction. But he could just as well be describing the entire field of organic human enhancement.
These days transhumanists talk a lot about subcutaneous data ports, permanent immersion in virtual reality, even extending male life spans by removing the gonads. But they spend noticeably little time considering enhancement through inheritable, rather than mechanical, means. “I don’t know why biological stuff is off the plate,” says Greg Fahy, chief scientific officer at Twenty-First Century Medicine Inc. “It’s just not the flavor of the day.” Continued:

WHETHER WE LIVE OR DIE IN THE U.S. WILL BE DECIDED IN DRONE ROOMS:

'DID WE JUST KILL A KID?': THE MOMENT DRONE OPERATOR WHO ASSASSINATED AFGHANS WITH THE PUSH OF A BUTTON ON A COMPUTER IN THE U.S. REALIZED HE HAD VAPORIZED A CHILD .. AND COULD NOT GO ON.
By Helen Pow - Published 16 December 2012 - Updated 17 December 2012 - A former U.S. drone operator has opened up about the toll of killing scores of innocent people by pressing a button from a control room in New Mexico.
Brandon Bryant, 27, from Missoula, Montana, spent six years in the Air Force operating Predator drones from inside a dark container. But, after following orders to shoot and kill a child in Afghanistan, he knew he couldn't keep doing what he was doing and quit the military. 'I saw men, women and children die during that time,' he told Spiegel Online. 'I never thought I would kill that many people. In fact, I thought I couldn't kill anyone at all.'
But it began to take its toll immediately. The first time he fired a missile, he killed two men instantly and cried on his way home. 'I felt disconnected from humanity for almost a week,' he said.
But it was an incident when a Predator drone was circling above a flat-roofed house made of mud in Afghanistan, more than 6,250 miles away, that really sticks in his mind.

TRANSHUMANISM WAS FOUNDED IN THE 1950s BY TOP EUGENICIST JULIAN HUXLEY AND THE ROCKEFELLER FOUNDATION, AS A NEW BRAND NAME FOR PSEUDOSCIENCE
Its obsession for culling off the 'genetically inferior', while at the same time striving to promote dominance for the 'superior' had given Eugenics a bad name, particularly after the Nazi brand of Eugenics created the Holocaust, during WWII. Sadly, what most people didn't know at that time was that Nazi eugenics was merely the full-blown application of the principles that had been developed and were openly espoused by the British, French and American Eugenics Societies.
So, Eugenics lived on, under many, heavily funded formats, one of them being Transhumanism. By and large, Transhumanism proposes to use applied science in the fields of genetics, robotics and others, to 'steer human evolution into the future'. A Transhumanist society will have, as its name implies, 'transcended humanity'. In such a society, human beings will have been replaced with hyper-efficient worker chimeras, bio-robotic warriors, and other purpose-made humanoid life forms.

THE OSAMA BIN LADEN MYTH
[Ednote: President Bush Jr. later stated publically [I heard him say that], that they were not pursuing Osama bin Laden. Yet his picture appeared in the news almost daily as the fugitive for years?]
Paul Craig Roberts, Contributor - Activist Post Monday, November 26, 2012 - The interview below with Osama bin Laden was conducted by the Karachi, Pakistan, daily newspaper, Ummat and published on September 28, 2001, 17 days after the alleged, but unsubstantiated, al Qaeda attack of September 11, 2001, on the World Trade Center twin towers and Pentagon. The interview was sensational. The alleged “mastermind” of 9/11 said that he and al Qaeda had nothing to do with the 9/11 attack. The British Broadcasting Corporation’s World Monitoring Service had the interview translated into English and made public on September 29, 2001.
Osama bin Laden’s sensational denial was not reported by the US print and TV media. It was not investigated by the executive branch. No one in the US Congress called attention to bin Laden’s refusal of responsibility for the greatest humiliation ever inflicted on a superpower.
To check my memory of the lack of coverage, I googled “Osama bin Laden’s interview denying responsibility for 9/11.” Some Internet sites reproduced the interview, but the only mainstream news source that I found was a 1 minute YouTube video from CNN in which the anchor, after quoting an al Jazeera report of bin Laden’s denial, concludes that “we can all weigh that in the scale of credibility and come to our own conclusions.” In other words, bin Laden had already been demonized, and his denial was not credible.
The sensational news was unfit for US citizens and was withheld from them by the american “free press,” a press free to lie for the government but not to tell the truth.
Obviously, if bin Laden had outwitted not only the National Security Agency, the CIA, the Defense Intelligence Agency, and the FBI, but also all 16 US intelligence agencies, all intelligence agencies of Washington’s NATO puppet states, Israel’s Mossad, and in addition the National Security Council, NORAD, US air traffic control, and airport security four times on the same morning, it would be the greatest feat in world history, a movement building feat that would have made al Qaeda the most successful anti-imperialist organization in human history, an extraordinary victory over “the great satan” that would have brought millions of new recruits into al Qaeda’s ranks. Yet the alleged “mastermind” denied all responsibility. Continued: http://www.activistpost.com/2012/11/the-osama-bin-laden-myth.html

EPA TO OUTLAW MANY WOOD BURNING STOVES
Our ever so helpful government has decided that your wood burning stove is now a danger to the world. In another attempt to outlaw the off grid lifestyle, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the same agency that was recently caught using drones to spy on Americans, is now going after home owners who use Wood Burning Stoves to heat their homes.
Shortly after the re-election of President Obama, the agency announced new radical environmental regulations that threaten to effect people who live off the grid. The EPA's new environmental regulations reduce the amount of airborne fine-particle matter from 15 micrograms to 12 micrograms per cubic meter of air.
This means that most wood burning stoves would now fall into a class that would deemed unacceptable under these new draconian measures. The EPA has even launched a nifty new website called burn wise to try to sway public opinion. Continued: http://cybertribenetwork.blogspot.com/2013/01/epa-to-outlaw-many-wood-burning-stoves.html

BILL GATES FUNDING DRONE TECHNOLOGY TO DELIVER VACCINES
November 3, 2012 ? My calm, (somewhat) rational opinion is: They are, for the most part, not necessary, not working, and not safe. The lack of science, not to mention common sense, behind the dozens of vaccines injected into our children is beyond appalling. There are two things, however, that the vaccine program definitely isn't lacking. One is money. The other is imagination.
Billions of dollars are being spent on developing new vaccines, improving vaccination rates worldwide, ensuring that vaccines are available to everyone on the planet, all through phenomenally creative methods. We have. or soon will have, needle-free vaccines, vaccines with micro needles, sublingual vaccines, vaccine patches, inhalable powder vaccines, the old Star Trek type of vaccines, even mail-order vaccines. Vaccines that are easier and faster to produce.
No more accidental needle sticks and cross-contamination of deadly diseases. No more refrigeration or syringes. No more vaccine phobia. No more pain. No more tears. . . Thanks to a sizable grant from the Gates Foundation (with oversight from WHO and UNICEF), $100,000 is being provided to 17 different initiatives, for a total of $1.7 million. The purpose is . . . to ensure new vaccines reach the millions of people in the poorest countries . . . One "bold idea" is unmanned aerial vehicles to quickly and inexpensively deliver vaccines to hard-to-reach areas. The vehicles will be deployed remotely by healthcare workers. The winner of this project is the Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology Division . . . Since the Vietnam War, the US has been using modern drones that are operated by a remote control and monitored through a live-streaming screen thousands of miles away from the target area. The vehicles hover silently, undetectable by radar . Full story: http://vactruth.com/2012/11/03/bill-gates-funding-drone-vaccines/
