GREETINGS


Isaiah 13:4-11 The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like as of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: the LORD of hosts mustereth the host of the battle. They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the LORD, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land.
Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt: And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.
Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.
Isaiah 13:13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.
Matthew 25:1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
Matthew 25:6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
Matthew 25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

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

LORD, PROP ME UP ON MY LEANIN’ SIDE
The following is from Heads Up! September 2012: “Every time I am asked to pray, I think of the old fellow who always prayed, ‘Lord, prop us up on our leaning side.’ After hearing him pray that prayer many times, someone asked him why he prayed that prayer so fervently. He answered, ‘Well sir, you see, it's like this: I got an old barn out back. It's been there a long time; it's withstood a lot of weather; it's gone through a lot of storms, and it's stood for many years. It's still standing. But one day I noticed it was leaning to one side a bit. So I went and got some pine poles and propped it up on its leaning side so it wouldn't fall. Then I got to thinking about that and how much I was like that old barn. I've been around a long time. I've withstood a lot of life's storms. I've withstood a lot of bad weather in life, I've withstood a lot of hard times, and I'm still standing too. But I find myself leaning to one side from time to time, so I like to ask the Lord to prop us up on our leaning side, 'cause I figure a lot of us get to leaning at times. Sometimes we get to leaning toward anger, leaning toward bitterness, leaning toward hatred, leaning toward cussing, leaning toward a lot of things that we shouldn't. So we need to pray, “Lord, prop us up on our leaning side” so we will stand straight and tall again, to glorify the Lord.’”

EYE HATH NOT SEEN, NOR EAR HEARD
David Cloud: 1 Corinthians 2:9 -- “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” This passage is often misapplied to mean that we don’t yet see everything that God has for us in the future, that we only have a glimpse of heaven, etc. This is true, of course, but this is not what Paul is talking about in this passage. The context is divine revelation that has been given through the apostles and prophets. See 1 Corinthians 2:6-10. Thus, in verse 9 Paul is not referring to what we don’t know; he is referring to what we do know through God’s Word, and this knowledge has not come by natural means (by the seeing of the eye or the hearing of the ear or the natural thinking of man’s heart), it has come by the revelation of the Spirit of God.

There seems to be sufficient evidence that another false flag event is being predicted / planned at the Olympic Games. This youtube had close to 2 million views. London Olympics 2012 Illuminati Conspiracy? (Full Length) ]
DOOM AND GLOOM: OLYMPIC WINS TRUMP CRITICS
Miami Herald Monday Aug. 13, 2012 . The London 2012 Olympic Games closed Sunday. PAISLEY DODDS - LONDON (AP) — For skeptics, the Olympics were deliciously doomed: London's transport network would surely fail, Britain's athletes would flop, rain would prevail and terrorists would strike. But then the sun came out after months of sodden skies, vehicles moved briskly, there were no attacks and British athletes reeled in a shocking 65 medals. On Monday, as international athletes and visitors poured out of London and the city's 8 million residents resumed their normal lives, British officials hailed the 2012 Olympics as an unqualified success. Even the naysayers predicting doom and gloom had to eat their words. "I was moaning like everyone else before the games, thinking the roads would be packed and nothing would work," said London shopkeeper Yvette Tracton, 28. "But it's been brilliant."
Some 116,000 people were leaving Monday from Heathrow airport, London's busiest hub, compared with 95,000 for a typical August day. Gatwick Airport was handling 70,000 departing passengers, 15 percent more than usual. Airports had come under scrutiny in the months leading up to the Olympics for lacking the staff to deal with backlogs of people and luggage, but Monday's crowds moved through without a hitch. The exodus included thousands of athletes and Prime Minister David Cameron, who was heading on vacation to the Mediterranean. Heathrow built a temporary Olympics terminal with 31 check-in desks to accommodate departing athletes and support staff. The terminal was decorated like a park, and some staff wore bearskin hats in the style of Buckingham Palace guards. "I have to say to Britain, you guys did a great job," said passenger Tumua Anae, a 23-year-old Californian who won gold as part of the U.S. water polo team.
London's quirky mayor, Boris Johnson, gloated to reporters, saying London had defied the skeptics. Some 300,000 foreigners and 5.5 million day-trippers flocked to the city for the games. Hotel occupancy was at 84 percent — double what Beijing and Sydney saw during their Olympics. Johnson said the city's public transport had coped just fine. Use of London's subway — the Tube — was up 30 percent but saw few major problems. London's overground commuter train saw double the normal crowds, and the city's bike hire scheme broke a record with 46,000 bikes rented on a single day.

BAPTIST FEMALE PASTORS
Friday Church News Notes, August 31, 2012 David Cloud - It was reported recently that there are at least 635 pastors and co-pastors in Baptist churches in America (“Baptist Women Pastors Reach Milestone,” Associated Baptist Press, Aug. 17, 2012). There are 485 women pastors in the American Baptist Church and 150 in the Alliance of Baptists, the Baptist General Convention of Texas, the Baptist General Association of Virginia, and the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. While the Southern Baptist Convention has an official statement against female pastors, there are large numbers of SBC churches that allow women to teach adult Sunday School classes and otherwise openly disobey 1 Timothy 2:12 -- “But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.” It is just as unscriptural for a woman to teach a class of men as it is for a woman to be a senior pastor. The late W.A. Criswell was one of the conservatives in the Convention, but his wife, Dorothy, taught a mixed Sunday Class for many years composed of men and women at First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas. Some of those who sat under her teaching were students and trustees of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (“Pastor’s letter challenges seminary’s proposed stance,” Baptist Press, Oct 17, 2006). Paige Patterson’s wife, another Dorothy, was the principal speaker at the Sunday morning worship service at Concord Missionary Baptist Church in Dallas (Baptist Press, Oct 17, 2006). Billy Graham’s daughter, Anne Graham Lotz, who preaches to mixed crowds of men and women, is a member of a Southern Baptist congregation. Texas Southern Baptists featured Lotz’s “stirring preaching” at their Evangelism Conference in 1996 and she was again featured as a preacher at a Sunday morning worship service June 15, 2003, sponsored by the Conference of Southern Baptist Evangelists (Ohio Baptist Messenger, July 2003). If is acceptable for women to teach the Bible to men, why is it not acceptable for them to take positions of authority over men? The same Scripture that forbids one forbids the other.

VATICAN WIN: JUDGE SAYS PRIESTS AREN'T EMPLOYEES
By NIGEL DUARA - Associated Press / August 20, 2012 - PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The Vatican won a major victory Monday in an Oregon federal courtroom, where a judge ruled that the Holy See is not the employer of molester priests. The decision by U.S. District Court Judge Michael Mosman ends a six-year question in the decade-old case and could shield the Vatican from possible monetary damages. The original lawsuit was filed in 2002 by a Seattle-area man who said the Rev. Andrew Ronan repeatedly molested him in the late 1960s. The plaintiff tried to show that Ronan and all priests are employees of the Vatican, which is therefore liable for their actions.
Mosman made a previous decision strictly on legal theory and determined that, if all the factual assertions made by the plaintiff’s lawyers in the case were true and applicable, then the Vatican would indeed employ Ronan. But on Monday, Mosman said he looked at the facts in the case and didn’t find an employer-employee relationship.
‘‘There are no facts to create a true employment relationship between Ronan and the Holy See,’’ Mosman said in his ruling from the bench. Jeff Anderson, attorney for the plaintiff, said he will appeal the decision. Continued:

GERMANY, FRANCE RECONNECT IN A PUSH FOR CRISIS SOLUTIONS
By Rainer Buergin on August 27, 2012 - Bloomberg Businessweek - Germany and France agreed to drive ahead measures on closer European integration in a renewed show of unity by the region’s two biggest economies to fix the crisis in the euro zone. German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble, speaking after talks in Berlin today with his French counterpart, Pierre Moscovici, said the two countries will create a working group to advance European Union cooperation on banking union, fiscal union and the strengthening of monetary union.
“We’re having to deal with a phase of weakening growth in the global economy but also in Europe,” Schaeuble told reporters. “We want to take joint decisions” to counter that. French President Francois Hollande said later in Paris that Franco-German ties are key to Europe’s reorientation. The common French-German action signals a turnaround in relations after Hollande led a revolt at a June summit against Chancellor Angela Merkel’s austerity-first doctrine for combating the financial crisis. It builds on a visit to Berlin by Hollande last week when he and Merkel agreed to stand behind the Greek government as it strives to overhaul its economy.
‘Economic Island’
“It’s not in German interests to kick Greece out of the euro zone,” Carsten Brzeski, an economist at ING Group in Brussels, said in an interview today with Bloomberg Radio’s Ken Prewitt. “Everyone realizes that it’s in the German interest to solve the crisis. At the same time, it’s become weak enough to show them that they’re not an economic island any more.” Continued: http://www.businessweek.com/news/2012-08-27/germany-france-reconnect-

LATEST DEVELOPMENTS ON ANTI-ISLAM FILM PROTESTS
Afghan police stand by burning tires during a protest, in Kabul, Afghanistan, Monday, Sept. 17, 2012. Hundreds of Afghans burned cars and threw rocks at a U.S. military base as a demonstration against an anti-Islam film that ridicules the Prophet Muhammad turned violent in the Afghan capital early Monday. (AP Photo - Ahmad Jamshid)The Associated Press - September 17, 2012 2:10 PM EDT - Here's a look at protests and reaction across the Middle East and elsewhere Monday over an anti-Islam film produced in the U.S. ridiculing the Prophet Muhammad.
PAKISTAN
Hundreds of protesters demonstrating against the film torched a press club and a government building in the northwestern town of Wari, setting of clashes with police that killed one demonstrator and wounded several others.
Hundreds also clashed with police for a second day in the southern city of Karachi as they tried to reach the U.S. Consulate there. Police lobbed tear gas and fired in the air to disperse the protesters who were from the student wing of the Jamaat-e-Islami party. Police arrested 40 students, but no injuries were reported.
AFGHANISTAN
Demonstrations turned violent outside a U.S. military base in Kabul, where about 800 protesters burned cars and threw rocks at Camp Phoenix. Many in the crowd shouted "Death to America!" and "Death to those people who have made a film and insulted our Prophet."
Police fired into the air to hold back the crowd and to prevent it from pushing toward government buildings downtown. More than 20 police officers were slightly injured, most of them hit by rocks.
Protests also broke out along the main thoroughfare into Kabul, where demonstrators burned shipping containers and tires. The crowd torched at least one police vehicle before finally dispersing.
LEBANON
In an appeal that could stoke more fury, the leader of the powerful militant group Hezbollah called for sustained protests in a rare appearance at a rally in Beirut.
Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah does not usually appear in public for fear of assassination. "This is the start of a serious movement that must continue all over the Muslim world in defense of the prophet of God," he said to roars of support.
Hezbollah's rallies seemed aimed at keeping the issue alive by bringing out large crowds. But the group also appeared to be trying to ensure it did not spiral into violence. Notably, Hezbollah held Monday's protest in its own mainly Shiite stronghold of Dahieh in south Beirut, far from the U.S. Embassy.
TUNISIA
A hardline Muslim leader blamed for encouraging last week's violent protests outside the U.S. Embassy in Tunisia fled through a police cordon around one of the capital's main mosques, where he had been holed up with his followers.
Hundreds of security forces had surrounded El Fateh mosque in Tunis, where Seif-Allah Ben Hassine had earlier denounced the Tunisian government and police for Friday's violence, claiming it was meant to be a peaceful demonstration.
Friday's protest degenerated into violence and looting, with cars burned in the embassy parking lot and classrooms at a nearby American school trashed and looted. A U.S. flag was torn down and replaced with a black banner.
INDONESIA
Hundreds clashed with police outside the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta, hurling rocks and firebombs and setting tires alight. It was the first violence seen in the world's most populous Muslim country since international outrage over the film exploded last week. Eleven policemen were rushed to the hospital after being pelted with rocks and attacked with bamboo sticks, while four protesters were arrested and one was hospitalized.
Demonstrators burned a picture of President Barack Obama and tried to ignite a fire truck parked outside the embassy after ripping a water hose off the vehicle and torching it, sending black smoke billowing into the sky. Police used water cannons and tear gas to try to disperse the crowd as the protesters shouted "Allahu Akbar," or God is great, and burned a U.S. flag. Demonstrations were also held in the cities of Medan and Bandung.
IRAN
Iran's top leader urged the West to show it respects Muslims by blocking the film. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Western leaders must prove they are not "accomplices" in a "big crime." Khamenei was quoted on state TV as noting that some nations place restrictions on expression, such as banning Nazi-related sites.
EGYPT
An al-Qaida-linked Egyptian jihadist, Ahmed Ashoush, issued a religious edict, or fatwa, saying it is justified to kill anyone who took part in the making of the prophet film.
Ashoush, who was believed close to Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida's current No. 1, Ayman al-Zawahri, heads the relatively obscure "Jihad Group." His edict, posted on a militant website, says the blood of the participants in the movie "should be shed, including the producer, the director and the actors" and that "their killing is a duty of every capable Muslim."

Several hundred Palestinians held a peaceful protest in the city of Ramallah against the film. Men stood on one side, chanting, "We will sacrifice for you, oh Muhammad." Women wearing headscarves stood on the other side, holding up large posters in Arabic, including one that read: "The Prophet is more important than my family."
UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
The country's telecommunication regulator said it has blocked access to the video and urged users to report any existing links to the country's Internet providers. Internet users in the Emirates searching by name for the film on YouTube, for example, now get a standard page used for other censored sites in the country saying, "This website is not accessible in the UAE." There are loopholes, though, since YouTube itself is not blocked and it is still possible to view the film by clicking recently posted links found within the site.

FREE SPEECH, RELIGION CLASH OVER ANTI MUSLIM FILM
A Muslim youth pauses near a poster during a protest against an anti-Islam film in Jakarta, Indonesia, Monday, Sept. 17, 2012. Indonesians enraged over an anti-Islam film hurled rocks and Molotov cocktails at the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta on Monday, marking the first violence in the world's most populous Muslim country since outrage exploded last week in the Middle East and beyond. GILLIAN FLACCUS - From Associated Press - September 18, 2012 5:16 AM EDT
CERRITOS, Calif. (AP) — While the man behind an anti-Islam movie that ignited violence across the Middle East would likely face swift punishment in his native Egypt for making the film, in America the government is in the thorny position of protecting his free speech rights and looking out for his safety even while condemning his message.
It's a paradox that makes little sense to those protesting and calling for blood. To them, the movie dialogue denigrating the Prophet Muhammad is all the evidence needed to pursue justice — vigilante or otherwise — against Nakoula Bassely Nakoula, an American citizen originally from Egypt.
In America, there's nothing illegal about making a movie that disparages a religious figure. And that has the Obama administration walking a diplomatic tight rope less than two months before the election — how to express outrage over the movie's treatment of Islam without compromising the most basic American freedom.
"The thing that makes this particularly difficult for the United States is that ... we treat what most of us would refer to as hate speech as constitutionally protected speech and Americans don't appreciate, I think, how unusual this position seems in the rest of the world," said Lawrence Rosenthal, a professor at Chapman University's School of Law in Orange, Calif.
The situation also raises vexing questions about how far the government can and should go to protect someone who exercises their First Amendment right. In the past, for example, police have stood guard to ensure Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan could march without being attacked for their views.
But Nakoula's case invites scrutiny because the free speech he exercised with the film "Innocence of Muslims" has had such far-reaching and violent implications. Continued: http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/

TERRY JONES PART OF ISRAEL PLAN TO INSTALL ROMNEY, ATTACK IRAN: ANALYST
Fury over a US-made anti-Islam film has spread across the Muslim world, with protesters marching on US embassies and torching US flags.
Demonstrators in Iran, Sudan, Egypt, Yemen, Tunisia and many other Muslim states came out after weekly Friday prayers to value their faith, condemning the blasphemous movie produced in the United States and insulting to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
Press TV has conducted an interview with Gordon Duff, a senior editor of Veterans Today, from Ohio, to further discuss the issue. The following is a rough transcription of the interview.
Press TV: Mr. Duff, first of all, with regards to this recent anti-Islam film which insults Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), there’s a man somehow related to this film, of course, in his promotion, Mr. Terry Jones. You have extensively researched and studied the background of this man. Tell us how he is a CIA agent and, of course, how he contributes to US interests both in and outside the US?
Duff: Terry Jones was initially recruited by the CIA in the late 1970s. He was sent to work in Germany in the 1980s under what NATO called “Operation Gladio” where he ran a church in northern Germany and used that as a cover for recruiting terrorist groups that were to stay behind in case of a Soviet invasion.
Since that time, he has been heavily supported by a number of powerful financial interests, some tied to Israel, the Koch brothers.
Certainly, the CIA has now splintered so we really have more than one CIA in the US, one closely allied with Jones and with Netanyahu, which is where we put the blame.
But the US backers for this film, we have tracked him down. The film itself was never made in its entirety. Only the 13 minutes was made. There is no film. The stories about an entire film are fabrications.
The actual distribution is tied to Google Corporation and YouTube which has had 46,000 inappropriate complaints; and it only takes three to take down a film -- they’ve refused; but also to a group called Pajama Media, tied to the Tea Party; again, the Koch brothers and very oddly enough with direct ties to the Cato Institute, a top Washington think tank that has been directly involved in this project. It’s a real surprise for us to see them because they have typically been very respected.
Press TV: This man, Terry Jones, he burned pages of the Holy Quran. He designated 9/11 as the international ‘Quran burning day’.
At the same time, on this 9/11 anniversary, we have this anti-Islam film out. First of all, what do you make of all this and how do you relate it to the fact that the US is clutching its straws to keep the 9/11 momentum going?
Duff: We have two issues here, really. Nine eleven in the US has become to a large extent that issue. Any American with reasonable education has begun to look on 9/11 as highly speculative.
Nations like Australia, 78 percent of the people in Australia in a poll believe that 9/11 was an inside job.

CHRISTIANS HAVE NO RIGHT TO WEAR CROSS AT WORK, SAYS GOVERNMENT
Christians do not have a right to wear a cross or crucifix openly at work, the Government is to argue in a landmark court case. The Government has refused to say that Christians have a right to display the symbol of their faith at work Photo: PA By David Barrett, Home Affairs Correspondent
9:00PM GMT 10 Mar 2012 - In a highly significant move, ministers will fight a case at the European Court of Human Rights in which two British women will seek to establish their right to display the cross.
It is the first time that the Government has been forced to state whether it backs the right of Christians to wear the symbol at work. A document seen by The Sunday Telegraph discloses that ministers will argue that because it is not a “requirement” of the Christian faith, employers can ban the wearing of the cross and sack workers who insist on doing so. The Government’s position received an angry response last night from prominent figures including Lord Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury. He accused ministers and the courts of “dictating” to Christians and said it was another example of Christianity becoming sidelined in official life

6:26PM BST 15 Sep 2012 - On the second day of his visit to Lebanon he urged mankind to pardon the offences of others, after meeting an array of the country's political and religious leaders, including representatives of Hezbollah, the Shia Muslim "Party of God". "Only forgiveness, given and received, can lay lasting foundations for reconciliation and universal peace," the Pontiff said at the Lebanese presidential palace.
Hundreds of people from different religious denominations lined the road as the Holy Father travelled to the lush Beirut suburb of Baabda, home to the presidential palace, preceded by a mounted parade of Lebanese ceremonial cavalry. Crowds waving both the Vatican and Lebanese flags cheered as he passed, and confetti swirled in the air.
Hezbollah's leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah has also welcomed the Pontiff's arrival in Lebanon, describing it as "historic and extraordinary" and the party has been eager to show its involvement. Banners declaring a "welcome to the land of resistance" and signed by the militant group were erected along the roadside as the Pontiff passed through its heartland districts in south Beirut on Friday.

Pope Benedict urges Christians in the Middle East to be peacemakers at an open-air mass in Beirut attended by hundreds of thousands of people. 4:31PM BST 16 Sep 2012 - Pope Benedict urged Christians in the Middle East to work for peace to counter "the grim trail of death and destruction" in the world, in a sermon delivered in Lebanon as civil war raged in neighbouring Syria. Benedict was speaking at an open-air mass on Beirut's Mediterranean seafront attended by 350,000 worshippers and leaders of Lebanon's Christian and Muslim communities.
Peace between warring factions and among the many religious groups in the Middle East has been a central theme of his visit to Lebanon, along with his call to Christians not to leave the region despite war and growing pressure from radical Islamists. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/religion/the-pope/9546432/The-Pope-calls-for-

THE POPE'S VISIT AND TRIPOLI'S BIG LOSS
By Alia Ibrahim - Saturday, 15 September 2012 - Pope Benedict XVI had barely set foot on Lebanese grounds when demonstrators started burning a KFC restaurant in Tripoli, my hometown, in protest against the inflammatory anti-Islamic movie, the innocence of Muslims.
They were no more than a couple of hundreds chanting “we don’t want the pope…no more insults to Islam.” Some of these guys may have been among the vandals who just hours earlier had torn down the posters spread in some neighborhoods of the city welcoming the Pope.
I swallowed my disgust, not without a pinch of bitterness, and forced my self to think that this was another reason why this papal visit is so important and why its timing is so crucial.
There was a long list of social, political and even security related points I had in mind to defend my argument about the vitality of this visit and in ways that by far exceed the border of this country.
In light of last week’s events, I decided to write about Tripoli.
To say things bluntly, most of those who oppose the Syrian revolution, amongst them a big chunk of Syria’s minorities, Christians included, say they fear the ascension of Islamists. Continued:

IS HILLARY'S AIDE'S FAMILY PROMOTING SLAUGHTER OF CHRISTIANS IN EGYPT?
September 19, 2012 by da Tagliare - "... Once Mursi and the Muslim Brotherhood gained control of Egypt, Mursi announced his plan to make Egypt a Muslim nation. Mursi is instigating a national policy in which any non-Muslims either pay a special tax to remain in Egypt or they leave the country. At the time of Mursi’s election, it was estimated that ten percent of the Egyptian population was made up of Coptic Christians.
However, it seems that many of Egypt’s Muslims are taking that policy one step further. In the past month, there have been a number of reports coming out of Egypt of Christians being harassed, beaten, tortured and even burned. Not all of the violence against Christians has been carried out by Muslim extremists. It seems that some government soldiers as well as police have been involved in the attacks on Christians as well.
Mursi’s government has done nothing to condemn the violence against the Christians. The only comments I’ve read from the Egyptian government are those that repeat Mursi’s desire to have an Islamic nation..." Full story::

BLACK CLOUDS AND BLACK FLAGS OVER OBAMA
Exclusive: Joel Richardson explains Islamic symbol appearing amid global riots
Published: 2 days ago - today September 18, 2012 - The late Osama bin Laden in front of the black flag of Islam
It was in 2004, when American businessman Nicholas Berg’s brutal execution by beheading was widely shown all over the Internet, that most Americans caught their first glimpse of the black flag of Islam. Hung on the wall behind Berg and his murderous executioners was a black banner with Arabic writing in white. Since the murder of Nicholas Berg, in numerous al-Qaida videos posted online, the same black flag has been observed hanging prominently behind the speaker. And now the same black flag is proudly flying high over the U.S. Embassy in Tunisia and is waving across the world. Welcome to Obama’s so-called “Arab Spring.”
Get Joel Richardson’s newest blockbuster book: “Mideast Beast: The Scriptural Case for an Islamic Antichrist”
Over the past few days, the black flag has been observed amidst the protests and riots in Egypt, Libya, Sudan, Nigeria, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, Syria, Kuwait, Bahrain, Iran, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Indonesia, India, Turkey, Jerusalem, Gaza and even Germany, Australia and England. Across the world, Muslims of every race, tribe and nation are marching under the same black banner.
Protesters burn the U.S. flag under the black banner of Islam in London (Photo: YouTube) While many commentators have been referring to this banner as the flag of al-Qaida, this does not convey its full meaning and history. What exactly what does the black flag of Islam truly symbolize? According to Islamic history and tradition, during the career of Muhammad, the “prophet” and founder of Islam, his forces carried a large black banner known as ar-Raya into battle. The first black banner was said to be made from a large piece of cloth once wrapped around the head of his child-bride, Aisha. When Muhammad and his men attacked a convoy, or village, it was this black flag that would herald their approach and lead them into battle.... The restoration of the Caliphate, a goal shared by jihadist groups such as al-Qaida, as well as moderate activist groups such as Hizbut Tahrir is a vision to unify the entire Islamic world into one Islamic superstate, called the Caliphate, led by a single leader, known as the Caliph. The Caliph is the pope, president and general of the Islamic world, bringing the religious, governmental and military offices all under one head. At virtually every Hizbut Tahrir rally, it is the black flag that will be the most prominent symbol on display.... Another version of the prophecy as recorded by Tirmidhi, has the armies marching from the east and placing their flags on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, as the seat of the coming unified Islamic superstate under the Mahdi/Caliph:
“Armies carrying black flags will come from Khurasan. No power will be able to stop them and they will finally reach Eela, (Baitul Maqdas, “The Holy House” in Jerusalem) where they will erect their flags.”
Christian theologians have highlighted the similarity between the Islamic vision of their Mahdi with the warnings of Jesus and Paul who saw the biblical Antichrist setting himself up on the Temple Mount as the demonic claimant to world leadership:
So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’ spoken of through the prophet Daniel – let the reader understand – then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. – Matthew 24:16 - Whole article: http://www.wnd.com/2012/09/black-clouds-and-black-flags-over-obama/

Obama's Shariah-inspired war on 1st Amendment - Exclusive: Pamela Geller calls response to Islamic riots 'a constitutional coup'
Published: September 18, 2012 - While we were conducting our hugely successful Stop Islamization of Nations (SION) International Freedom Congress on free speech last Tuesday, Sept. 11, our embassies were being viciously attacked in the jihadists’ war on free speech and the freedom of conscience. The bloody irony was not lost on us. The U.S. Embassy in Cairo immediately tweeted: “We condemn the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.” Although it later deleted the tweet, the Obama administration’s apology for “religious incitement” and “hurting the feelings of Muslims” crystallizes the battle set before us.
We had gathered on the 11th anniversary of the jihad attacks that murdered 3,000 people to fight exactly the same battle that erupted with such fury on the same day: the global battle for free speech. A group of freedom fighters from all over the world gathered to tell the truth about Islam, jihad and the mainstream media’s war on free speech and honest reporting and analysis of that jihad. Speakers from the U.S., England, Europe, India, Israel and Australia spoke to a standing-room-only crowd about the media’s craven complicity in whitewashing the reality of jihad and demonizing those who fight for freedom.

US IMAM: ‘DISREGARD FIRST AMENDMENT'’ REPLACE WITH SHARIA
September 21, 2012 by Tim Brown - A New Jersey Imam has come out in support of disregarding the U.S. Constitution in favor of instituting Sharia law. Mohammad Qatanani, an Imam of one of the largest New Jersey mosques, said that anyone that criticize Islam was a direct threat on our national security. He believes this so strongly that he thinks anyone that speaks ill of Muhammad should be investigated by the Department of Homeland Security.
The Blaze reported on an interview with Qatanani:
“We, as Americans, have to put limits and borders [on] freedom of speech,” Qatanani, leader of the Islamic Center of Passaic County (ICPC), told TheBlaze. He explained that while Americans may ”have the freedom“ to speak their mind, ultimately, they “have no right to [talk about Muslim] holy issues“ as it will incite ”hatred or war among people.”
Qatanani said he thinks agitators who slander Islam, or, more specifically, the Prophet Muhammad, incite violence and hence, pose a national security risk that threatens the safety of Americans at home and abroad. Thus, America should disregard its First Amendment as it is typically applied and instead act in accordance with sharia law for the ultimate “good” of society.
“They [Muslims] think our [American] freedoms are too much,” Qatanani said. “The freedom of the American people is so different from their [Muslims'] freedoms. We believe freedoms have limits and rules, otherwise we will get people into trouble…Freedom according to Islam must be according to the Quran and Sunnah. You can do [anything] you like within the teachings of these two resources. This is the difference and main reason [for the conflict].” Continued: http://freedomoutpost.com/2012/09/us-imam-disregard-first-amendment-replace-with-sharia/

EVANGELICALS TURNING TO CATHOLIC “SPIRITUALITY”
Updated and enlarged July 30, 2008 (first published January 4, 2001) David Cloud - wayoflife.org
Everywhere we look evangelicals are turning to Roman Catholic styles of contemplative spirituality (which in many cases were borrowed from pagan sources), such as ritualistic rote prayers, chanting, meditation, mindless centering prayer, the use of prayer beads, the Stations of the Cross, lectio divina, labyrinths, and “the daily office.”
The cover story for the February 2008 issue of Christianity Today was “The Future Lies in the Past,” and it describes the “lost secrets of the ancient church” that are being rediscovered by evangelicals. The ancient church in question happens to be the Roman Catholic, beginning with the so-called “church fathers” of the early centuries.
The article observes that many young evangelicals dislike both “traditional” Christianity” and the seeker sensitive churches. Traditional Christianity is described as too focused on “being right,” too much into “Bible studies” and “apologetics materials.” Instead, the young evangelicals are lusting after “a renewed encounter with a God” that goes beyond “doctrinal definitions.” This, of course, is a perfect definition of mysticism. It refers to experiencing God beyond the boundaries of Scripture.
Christianity Today recommends that evangelicals “stop debating” and just “embody Christianity.” Toward this end they should “embrace symbols and sacraments” and dialogue with “Catholicism and Orthodoxy”; they should “break out the candles and incense” and pray the “lectio divina” and learn the Catholic” ascetic disciplines” from “practicing monks and nuns.” Continued: http://www.wayoflife.org/index_files/739a394f6f54509480006297b4f7e4f5-118.html

THE EMERGING CHURCH IS A MAGNET FOR THOSE WHO HAVE REJECTED THE "OLD FASHIONED" NEW TESTAMENT FAITH
The emerging church is a magnet for those who have rejected the “old-fashioned” New Testament faith and who despise traditional Bible-believing churches, dogmatic biblical preaching, and biblical “judgmentalism” in regard to lifestyle choices.
Many of the books I have read by emerging leaders make this admission.
For example, in Blue Like Jazz Donald Miller tells how that he refused to be restricted by the teaching of traditional-type churches. He wanted to drink beer and watch raunchy movies and talk trashy and run around with atheists and other rebels. In discussing his involvement in church in his youth he says, “I wished I could have subscribed to aspects of Christianity but not the whole thing” (p. 30). He complains, “In order to believe Christianity, you either had to reduce enormous theological absurdities [i.e., Garden of Eden, universal flood] into children’s stories or ignore them” (p. 31). He wanted to believe the gospel “free from the clasp of fairy tale” (p. 35). In other words, he wanted to pick and choose what parts of the Bible he would believe. He despised dogmatic Bible preaching and hated it when preachers “said we had to follow Jesus” because “sometimes they would make Him sound angry” (p. 34).
In fact, Jesus was angry sometimes even in His incarnation (“he looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts,” Mark 3:5), and He will be very angry in the future when the wrath of the Lamb is poured out upon mankind as described in the book of Revelation and many other places in Scripture!

MORE CHARGES IN TULSA CHURCH ABUSE INVESTIGATION
By JUSTIN JUOZAPAVICIUS Associated Press The Associated Press
Tuesday, September 25, 2012 4:20 PM EDT Victory Christian Center is shown on Wednesday, Sept. 19, 2012 in Tulsa, Okla. Five... (AP Photo/Justin Juozapavicius) TULSA, Okla. (AP) [Pastor Billy Joe and Sharon Daugherty https://www.victory.com ] A fourth victim of alleged abuse at a 17,000-member Tulsa megachurch has come forward, and police said Tuesday that there might be a fifth. At the same time, members of Victory Christian Center are beginning to speak publicly about the allegations that have shaken the worldwide ministry's foundations and tarnished the reputations of its pastor and her family members. Prosecutors added two additional charges Monday against 20-year-old Chris Denman, a former church employee. He was arrested Sept. 5 on a complaint alleging that he raped a 13-year-old girl in a stairwell on the ministry's campus in August and molested a 15-year-old girl. He faces new charges of making a lewd proposal to a child and using a computer to commit a sex crime involving a 12-year-old girl.
Another ex-church employee, 23-year-old Israel Castillo, was arrested last week and is charged with making a lewd proposal to a 15-year-old girl and using a computer to commit a sex crime. Tulsa Police Det. Cpl. Greg Smith told The Associated Press in an interview Tuesday that a third suspect could face charges related to alleged sexual abuse of a fifth victim. Two things are complicating that case, Smith said, because the victim's parents are uncooperative and the suspect is no longer in Tulsa. "We're at a stalemate," Smith said. "The third suspect we haven't talked about because all we have to go on now is secondhand information." On Wednesday, five employees of the south Tulsa church — including the son and daughter-in-law of head pastor Sharon Daugherty — are scheduled to be arraigned in district court for allegedly waiting two weeks before reporting the rape of the 13-year-old by Denman to authorities. John Daugherty, Charica Daugherty, Paul Willemstein, Anna George and Harold "Frank" Sullivan each face one misdemeanor count of failing to report child abuse.
Jason Robertson, an attorney representing John and Charica Daugherty, who are both youth pastors at the church, said his clients did nothing wrong. Continued: http://www.mycenturylink.com/news/read.php?rip_

MUSLIM NATIONS PUSH FOR INTERNATIONAL BLASPHEMY LAW
After an anti-Islam film sparked violent riots across the world, the UN will revisit the debate over international blasphemy laws. - Daniel DeFraia - September 25, 2012 11:25 - Photo: Philippine Muslims pray during a protest over the controversial 'Innocence of Muslims' movie, in front of the US embassy in Manila on Sept. 24, 2012. Hundreds of Muslims in the Philippines protested before the US embassy, calling for a ban on an inflammatory anti-Islam film that sparked deadly riots in other countries. (Ted Aljibe/AFP/Getty Images)What do you think?
The United Nations, at the behest of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), will debate, once again, the merit of blasphemy laws that could potentially criminalize religious defamation. “We are living through a period of unease," UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said last week. "We are also seeing incidents of intolerance and hatred that are then exploited by others. Voices of moderation and calm need to make themselves heard at this time. We all need to speak up in favor of mutual respect and understanding of the values and beliefs of others.”
Rev. Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite, a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, points out in the Washington Post that "since 1999, the 56-nation Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has sought to include the issue of religious defamation in UN Human Rights Council resolutions."
Typically the West and human rights organizations have objected such laws on grounds that they would limit free speech. But this year, after an anti-Islam YouTube video sparked deadly riots throughout the world, the global mood is decidedly altered from previous years.

LIBYAN PRESIDENT CONTRADICTS OBAMA: FILM NOT RESPONSIBL FOR ATTACK
by John Nolte 26 Sep 2012, 7:34 AM - As recently as yesterday, President Obama stood before the world at the United Nations and blamed "The Innocence of Muslims" for the unrest in the Middle East and, more specifically, the death of four Americans in Libya, including Christopher Stevens, our Libyan Ambassador. Obama refuses to acknowledge the assassination of Stevens was a terrorist attack, even though other members of his Administration, including his own Secretary of State, have already conceded it was exactly that.
In fact, every bit of intel also contradicts the President.
And now, Libyan President Mohamed Magarief is on the record declaratively stating the video had absolutely nothing to do with the attacks:
Libyan President Mohamed Magarief said the deadly Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi, which also resulted in the deaths of three other Americans, was more likely pegged to the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
"Reaction should have been, if it was genuine, should have been six months earlier. So it was postponed until the 11th of September," Magarief told NBC’s Ann Curry in the exclusive interview.

PRESIDENT OBAMA DECLARES THE FUTURE MUST NOT BELONG TO PRACTICING CHRISTIANS
By: Erick Erickson (Diary) | September 25th, 2012 at 11:20 AM | 154
In his speech to the United Nations General Assembly today the President of the United States declared that the future does not belong to practicing Christians. Already, the media and the left are in full denial, probably based on their general lack of understanding of theology. This would have been a gaffe had Mitt Romney said it. But with Barack Obama, he’s just speaking bold truths. His bold truth declares that the future does not belong to practicing Christians.
Pay careful attention to what he says.
The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. Yet to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see when the image of Jesus Christ is desecrated, churches are destroyed, or the Holocaust is denied. Let us condemn incitement against Sufi Muslims, and Shiite pilgrims. It is time to heed the words of Gandhi: “Intolerance is itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit.” Together, we must work towards a world where we are strengthened by our differences, and not defined by them. That is what America embodies, and that is the vision we will support.
Now, that’s the full paragraph so no one can claim I took him out of context.
But consider this. It is an orthodox Christian belief that Mohammed is not a prophet. Actual Christians, as opposed to many of the supposed Christians put up by the mainstream media, believe that Christ is the only way to salvation. Believing that is slandering Mohammed. That’s just a fact. If you don’t believe me, you go into the MIddle East and proclaim Christ is the way, the truth, and the life and see what happens to your life.Continued:

'JESUS NOT ALLOWED" ANTI-FAITH SENTIMENT SWEEPS US
By Paul Strand - CBN News Washington Sr. Correspondent - Tuesday, September 25, 2012 Could you imagine going to jail for your faith? A recent report warns that it could happen.
CBN News investigated the growing wave of hostility to Christianity in America that's led to hundreds of court cases.
No Religion Allowed Angela Hildenbrand faced the very real possibility of going to jail for her faith. The trouble began when a federal judge ruled that no one at her Texas high school could pray or even use words like "prayer" or "amen" during the 2011 graduation ceremonies. As class valedictorian, Hildenbrand felt God deserved the praise, even if it meant jail for her.
"I was definitely preparing myself to have to make that sort of tough decision and mentally prepare myself for what well could be coming next," she told CBN News. Hildenbrand's case is just one of more than 640 cases of religious hostility cited in a new report by the Liberty Institute. General Counsel Jeff Mateer, who takes on many of these cases, helped put the survey together. "The atheists and the secularists are well-organized and they're well-funded," the Liberty Institute attorney told CBN News.

GERMAN CATHOLICS WILL BE DENIED HOLY COMMUNION OR A RELIGIOUS BURIAL IF THEY REFUSE TO CHURCH TAX 8% OF INCOME
Allan Hall - Daily Mail., UK - Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:00 CDT Corbis
Worshipers in Germany will be no longer considered Catholic if they do not pay the special church tax.Germany's Catholic Church will deny worshipers the right to Holy Communion and religious burials if people do not pay a special church tax. A newly-enforced German bishops' decree says anyone failing to pay the tax - an extra 8% of their income tax bill - will no longer be considered a Catholic. All people in Germany must pay this tax if they want to worship in either Catholic or protestant churches, or Jewish synagogues. Last year millions of files spanning decades were handed over to criminal investigators by all 27 dioceses of the Catholic Church hierarchy in Germany in a bid to get to the heart of child sex abuse by priests.

NO TAX, NO BLESSING GERMAN CHURCH INSISTS ON LEVY
By JUERGEN BAETZ The Associated Press
Friday, September 28, 2012 12:22 PM EDT
BERLIN (AP) — The road to heaven is paved with more than good intentions for Germany's 24 million Catholics. If they don't pay their religious taxes, they will be denied sacraments, including weddings, baptisms and funerals.
A decree issued last week by the country's bishops cast a spotlight on the longstanding practice in Germany and a handful of other European countries in which governments tax registered believers and then hand over the money to the religious institutions. In Germany, the surcharge for Catholics, Protestants and Jews is a surcharge of up to nine percent on their income tax bills — or about (EURO)56 ($72) a month for a single person earning a pre-tax monthly salary of about (EURO)3,500 ($4,500). For religious institutions, struggling to maintain their congregations in a secular society where the Protestant Reformation began 500 years ago, the tax revenues are vital.
The Catholic Church in Germany receives about (EURO)5 billion ($6.5 billion) annually from the surcharge. For Protestants, the total is just above (EURO)4 billion ($5.2 billion). Donations, in turn, represent a far smaller share of the churches' income than in the United States. Continued: http://www.mycenturylink.com/news/read.php?

AHAMADINEJAD MEETS WITH NATION OF ISLAM LEADER LOUIS FARRAKHAN
Published 9.26.2012 By Caroline May - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad met with the Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan and other religious leaders Tuesday, according to an English translation of the Iranian president’s Web page posted Wednesday.
In a picture of the Tuesday evening meeting, Farrakhan — known for making brutally anti-Semitic assertions, and calling President Obama a “murderer” for the death of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi — is seen smiling as he sits at a table with the Iranian president.
According to Ahmadinejad’s Web page, the night before his address to the UN General Assembly, Ahmadinejad, Farrakhan and seven other leaders of “Abrahamic religions” listened to the Iranian president’s desires for a new world order.
Ahmadinejad made his case again for the regime’s nuclear program, arguing that Iran has a right to develop clean energy and stressing that “US animosity” against the Iranian government and its nuclear program is due to America’s desire for the Middle East’s energy resources, the Iranian government claimed on their webpage.
“He further pointed to the Western countries contradictory approach regarding their opposition to the atomic bombs and said if they are true with their claims why they do not destroy their own nuclear bombs first,” the Iranian government wrote of Ahmadinejad’s comments.
The Iranian president went on to demonize Israel, saying that the “Zionist regime” demonstrates their weakness by threatening Iran. The Ahmadinejad’s website notes he added that the “Zionist regime is suffering from mental disequilibrium.” Continued: http://dailycaller.com/2012/09/26/ahmadinejad-meets-with-nation-of-islam-leader-louis-farrahkan

'GOSPEL OF JESUS' ' WIFE' PAPYRUS IS A FAKE FRAGMENT, VATICAN SAYS
Editorial in Holy See's official newspaper declares it to be a 'clumsy forgery'
A historian of early Christianity at Harvard Divinity School has identified a papyrus fragment in Coptic that she says contains the first known statement saying explicitly that Jesus was married. The fragment also refers to a female disciple.By Naomi O'Leary - updated 9/28/2012 9:36:55
An ancient papyrus fragment which a Harvard scholar says contains the first recorded mention that Jesus may have had a wife is a fake, the Vatican said Friday. "Substantial reasons would lead one to conclude that the papyrus is indeed a clumsy forgery," the Vatican's newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano, said in an editorial by its editor, Gian Maria Vian. "In any case, it's a fake."..Joining a highly charged academic debate over the authenticity of the text, written in ancient Egyptian Coptic, the newspaper published a lengthy analysis by expert Alberto Camplani of Rome's La Sapienza university, outlining doubts about the manuscript and urging extreme caution.

JORDAN ON THE BRINK: MUSLIM BROTHERS MOBILIZE FOR KING ABDULLAH'S OVERTHROW
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report September 25, 2012, 8:50 AM (GMT+02:00) Jordan’s Muslim Brotherhood has given King Abdullah II notice that he has until October to bow to their demand to transform the Hashemite Kingdom into a constitutional monarchy or face Arab Spring street pressure for his abdication.
debkafile’s Middle East sources report that Israeli and Saudi intelligence watchers are becoming increasingly concerned about the approaching climax of the conflict in Amman between Islamists and the throne .
For Israel, an upheaval in Jordan bodes the tightening of the Islamist noose around its borders – Egypt and Libya to the south and Syria to the north, with unpredictable consequences with regard to Jordan’s Palestinian population.
Saudi Arabia, already threatened by Iranian aggression, fears the oil kingdom may be next in line if its northern neighbor is crushed under the marching feet of the “Arab Spring.”
The oil kingdom’s royal rulers are reported to have belatedly woken up to the peril and are in a panic. They realize that their preoccupation with helping Syrian rebels overthrow Bashar Assad misdirected their attention from the enemies lurking at their own door. Thousands of articles in the Arab press in the past year have predicted that after the Muslim Brotherhood seizes power in Damascus, Amman would be next in its sights followed by Riyadh.
The latest DEBKA-Net-Weekly of Sept. 21 analyzed the plight closing in on the Jordanian monarch and outlined three of his options: Continued: http://debka.com/article/22382/Jordan-on-the-brink-Muslim-Brothers-mobilize-

BRIAN MCLAREN PERFORMS SON’S HOMOSEXUAL “MARRIAGE”
Friday Church News Notes, September 28, 2012 David Cloud - On September 22, Brian McLaren, one of the most influential voices in the emerging church, performed the civil “wedding” ceremony for his homosexual son Trevor. The ceremony was held at the Woodend Sanctuary of the Audubon Naturalist Society in Chevy Chase, Maryland (“Weddings/Celebrations,” New York Times, Sept. 23, 2012). In 2006, McLaren said, “Frankly, many of us don’t know what we should think about homosexuality. ... We aren’t sure if or where lines are to be drawn, nor do we know how to enforce with fairness whatever lines are drawn. ... Perhaps we need a five-year moratorium on making pronouncements” (“Brian McLaren on the Homosexual Question,” Jan. 23, 2006, http://blog.christianitytoday.com/outofur/archives/2006/01/brian_mclaren_o.html). In a 2004 interview with Candace Chellew-Hodge for Whosoever, a homosexual publication, popular emerging writer Philip Yancy said, “When it gets to particular matters of policy, like ordaining gay and lesbian ministers, I’m confused, like a lot of people (“Amazed by Grace,” Whosoever online magazine). Doug Pagitt said, “It we have a theology formed in a worldview that sees sexuality as sin, our means, intentions, and explanations of sexuality will be affected” (Listening to the Beliefs of Emerging Churches, p. 140). Chris Seay said that churches should “approach homosexuals without condemnation but with God’s love and the gospel” (ChurchRelevance.com, June 19, 2007). Spencer Burke believes that “the evangelical church may be wrong about homosexuality” (http://www.zondervan.com/media/samples/pdf/0310253861_samptxt.pdf#
search='spencer%20burke%20homosexuality). Tony Campolo’s wife, Peggy, is affiliated with the Association of Welcoming and Affirming Baptists, the mission of which is “to create and support a community of churches, organizations and individuals committed to the inclusion of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender persons in the full life and mission of Baptist churches.” She advises homosexuals to “ask the Holy Spirit to give you a sense of God’s timing” about “coming out” and says, “I can celebrate the committed monogamous partnerships of my gay brothers and lesbian sisters” (The InSpiriter, Summer 2000). http://www.wayoflife.org

TEACHING CREATIONISM LABELED CHILD ABUSE
Friday Church News Notes, September 28, 2012, David Cloud - The following is excerpted from “Origins and ‘Child Abuse,’” Around the World with Ken Ham, Sept. 18, 2012: “An AiG supporter recently brought to my attention a blog where creationist tours of the Denver Zoo and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science are referred to by the blogger as “child abuse.” Now, this particular blog is not well known, but it highlights an important trend among those who oppose biblical creation. ... In one example, an atheist blogger wrote last year, ‘Sending children to be misinformed by this fundamentalist is borderline child abuse’ (http://littlegreenfootballs.com/page/261504). Richard Dawkins makes an argument that Christianity--specifically belief in the truth of Scripture--is child abuse in his book The God Delusion. ... In 2011, a well-trafficked atheist blog reviewed and gave away copies of a book on how religion is child abuse. In order to receive a copy, people had to post my name, ‘Ken Ham,’ in the comments--the clear implication being that creationism is a form of abuse (http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2011/06/18/shedding-light-on-religious-child-maltreatment/). P.Z. Myers, a professor at the University of Minnesota, said that thinking such as creationism ‘works as a kind of brute-force psychological hammer when abusing the mind of an 8-year-old’ (http://freethoughtblogs.com/pharyngula/2012/01/16/a-little-comparative-religion-would-do-ken-ham-a-world-of-good/). And even Bill Nye, though he did not use the phrase ‘child abuse,’ made the point that parents who teach their children creationism teach them to live in ‘inconsistent’ worlds and destroy their hopes for a ‘scientifically literate’ future (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHbYJfwFgOU). This is all clear evidence of a culture that willingly suppresses the truth of God’s Word.” http://www.wayoflife.org

Fire tornado, Photo: SWNS
SETTING THE WORLD ON FIRE: STUNNING PICTURE OF RARE 'DEVIL TORNADO' EMERGES
September 18, 2012, 6:30 am - An awe-struck filmmaker has told of the moment he witnessed one of nature's rarest phenomena - a fire tornado. Chris Tangey had been out in Alice Springs scouting locations for a new movie.
After finishing he went over to help workers at a cattle station when he was confronted by one of nature's most intimidating spectacles. Just 300 metres away was a 30-metre high fire swirl which "sounded like a fighter jet", despite there being no wind in the area.
A fire tornado, also know as a fire devil, is caused when a column of warm, rising air comes into contact - or causes - a fire on the ground. These fire whirls are known to last for around two minutes on the very rare occasions they take place.
But Chris found himself mesmerised by the tornado for more than 40 minutes. The 52-year-old said: "The weather was perfectly still and it was about 25 degrees celsius - it was an entirely uneventful day.
"Then the next thing a man is yelling 'what the hell is that?' and I turned around and saw a 30-metre fire tornado.
"I was about 300 metres away and there was no wind but the tornado sounded just like a fighter jet. My jaw just dropped." Chris, who runs Alice Springs Film and Television, described it as a "once in ten lifetimes experience".
He added: "I've been shooting in the outback for 23 years and I have never seen anything like it. We've heard about them but they're never seen. "If I had known what was about to happen then I would have happily paid $1,000 to watch it. "At any time there were three different tornadoes, it just kept going and going for 40 minutes. "The whole experience was staggering and the length and variety were astonishing." Although they are rare, these spectacles are extremely dangerous. In 1923, a fire whirl emerged during Japan's Great Kanto Earthquake and killed 38,000 people in just 15 minutes. http://au.news.yahoo.com/world/a/-/world/14878513/rare-pictures-fire-tornado/

TAXPAYERS SPENT $1.4B ON OBAMA FAMILY LAST YEAR, PERKS QUESTIONED IN NEW BOOK
Published 9.26.2012 By Alex Pappas
Taxpayers spent $1.4 billion dollars on everything from staffing, housing, flying and entertaining President Obama and his family last year, according to the author of a new book on taxpayer-funded presidential perks.
In comparison, British taxpayers spent just $57.8 million on the royal family.
Author Robert Keith Gray writes in “Presidential Perks Gone Royal” that Obama isn’t the only president to have taken advantage of the expensive trappings of his office. But the amount of money spent on the first family, he argues, has risen tremendously under the Obama administration and needs to be reined in.
Gray told The Daily Caller that the $1.4 billion spent on the Obama family last year is the “total cost of the presidency,” factoring the cost of the “biggest staff in history at the highest wages ever,” a 50 percent increase in the numbers of appointed czars and an Air Force One “running with the frequency of a scheduled air line.”
“The most concerning thing, I think, is the use of taxpayer funds to actually abet his re-election,” Gray, who worked in the Eisenhower administration and for other Republican presidents, said in an interview with TheDC on Wednesday.
“The press has been so slow in picking up on this extraordinary increase in the president’s expenses,” Gray told TheDC.

MEET MONSANTO'S NUMBER ONE LOBBYIST: BARACK OBAMA
Jon Rappoport - Natural News - Tue, 25 Sep 2012 15:42 CDTDuring his 2008 campaign for president, Barack Obama transmitted signals that he understood the GMO issue. Several key anti-GMO activists were impressed. They thought Obama, once in the White House, would listen to their concerns and act on them.
These activists weren't just reading tea leaves. On the campaign trail, Obama said:
"Let folks know when their food is genetically modified, because Americans have a right to know what they're buying." Making the distinction between GMO and non-GMO was certainly an indication that Obama, unlike the FDA and USDA, saw there was an important line to draw in the sand. Continued:

OBAMA STORE SELLS OBAMERICAN FLAG
Thomas Lifson - September 20, 2012
I am shocked that the Obama store would sell a version of the American flag with the fifty stars replaced by the campaign's iconic O with flowing stripes across the bottom. But for 35 bucks you can get a "Screen print designed by Ross Bruggink and Dan Olson of Studio MPLS. Limited edition (250 units), hand-numbered, 24'' x 36'' and made in the USA."
Obviously, the people involved in the project never met (or don't give a damn about) anyone who fought for the American flag and remains passionate about the respect it deserves, nay demands. While the sensitivities if Muslims about a movie trailer are worthy of a full grovel, the feelings of people who regard the American flag as a sacred symbol matter not at all.
The ego and idolatry involved here are staggering. L'etat c'est moi comes to mind. There have been ample disturbing signs of a dear leader wannabe propaganda operation before, but actually defacing the symbol of the nation into the leader's cult is a new low.

WHO WILL WIN AND WILL IT MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE IN YOUR INVESTMENTS? YES AND YES!

Finally, after years of campaigning, debates and never-ending television coverage, the November elections are upon us. Who will win and will it make any difference in your investments? Yes and yes!
Will President Obama win re-election, or will Governor Romney occupy the White House in January?
Right now Intrade, the political futures market, shows Mr. Obama as the heavy favorite by 58% to 42%.
But much could change between now and November 6, and Intrade has had a checkered past in its ability to predict winners…
A better record has been recorded by several economists who have developed economic models that have been surprisingly accurate.
And all of them agree: President Obama is in serious trouble and is likely to lose in November!
Here are the results of four of the best forecasters in the business:
1. Two political scientists at the University of Colorado, Ken Bickers and Michael Berry, used their economic indicator model to predict who would win in November. Their model has correctly predicted the outcome of the past eight elections, and this year they predict a big Romney victory with nearly 53% of the vote, with Romney winning almost all the swing states.
2. Nigel Gault, the chief U.S. economist at HIS Global Insights, a Boston-based research firm, uses proprietary methods and various economic variables, shows the president in even worse shape. The high unemployment rate (8.1%) is a “crucial variable,” he states, and based on his model, Obama will garner only 45.4% of the popular vote.
3. Two economists, David Rothschild of Microsoft Research and Patrick Hummel of Google, have created a model that is both political and economic, and they too show President Obama losing.
4. Ray C. Fair, the Yale economics professor, has developed a successful prediction model that covers elections since 1916. His model depends entirely on the strength of the economy. Right now he has Romney leading by only one percentage point, 50.5% to Obama’s 49.5%, but he says there is a 2.5% “standard error,” so the election is “too close to call.” [source: email]

MORE THAN 100 MILLION AMERICANS ARE ON WELFARE
By Michael, on August 8th, 2012 - There are more Americans dependent on the federal government than ever before in U.S. history. According to the Survey of Income and Program Participation conducted by the U.S. Census, well over 100 million Americans are enrolled in at least one welfare program run by the federal government. Many are enrolled in more than one. That is about a third of the entire population of the country. Sadly, that figure does not even include Social Security or Medicare. Today the federal government runs almost 80 different "means-tested welfare programs", and almost all of those programs have experienced substantial growth in recent years. Yes, we will always need a "safety net" for those that cannot take care of themselves, but it is absolutely ridiculous that the federal government is financially supporting one-third of all Americans. How much farther do things really need to go before we finally admit that we have become a socialist nation? At the rate we are going, it will not be too long before half the nation is on welfare. Unfortunately, we will likely never get to that point because the gigantic debt that we are currently running up will probably destroy our financial system before that ever happens. It is really hard to believe how rapidly some of these federal welfare programs have grown. For example, the number of Americans on food stamps has grown from about 17 million in 2000 to 31.9 million when Barack Obama took office to 46.4 million today. The federal government spent a staggering 71.8 billion dollars on the food stamp program in 2011. Full story:

WHAT MAKES OUR NDAA LAWSUIT A STRUGGLE TO SAVE THE US CONSTITUTION

I am one of the lead plaintiffs in the civil lawsuit against the National Defense Authorization Act, which gives the president the power to hold any US citizen anywhere for as long as he wants, without charge or trial.
In a May hearing, Judge Katherine Forrest issued an injunction against it; this week, in a final hearing in New York City, US government lawyers asserted even more extreme powers – the right to disregard entirely the judge and the law. On Monday 6 August,
Obama's lawyers filed an appeal to the injunction – a profoundly important development that, as of this writing, has been scarcely reported.
In the earlier March hearing, US government lawyers had confirmed that, yes, the NDAA does give the president the power to lock up people like journalist Chris Hedges and peaceful activists like myself and other plaintiffs. Government attorneys stated on record that even war correspondents could be locked up indefinitely under the NDAA.

WARNING: GET YOUR MONEY OUT.
"ALL LEGAL BANK DEPOSIT PROTECTIONS ARE OFFICIALLY GONE"
Former money manager Ann Barnhardt, who in November of 2011 made the decision to cease operations of her brokerage firm and return funds to her customers citing “systemic” problems within the entire financial industry, has issued a new warning about the stability of US banks and the safety of individual deposit accounts. The warning, stemming from a recent federal appeals court ruling surrounding customer funds lost during the 2007 collapse of Chicago futures broker Sentinel, indicates that individuals who lose deposited funds because a financial institution improperly manages that money, even if those funds are supposed to be “segregated” from other operations of the firm, are essentially left with no recourse if the firm goes belly-up. According to the court, a misallocation of those customer funds, “is not, on its own, sufficient to rule as a matter of law that Sentinel acted ‘with actual intent to hinder, delay, or defraud’ its customers.”
The implications of the ruling, according to Barnhardt, will affect the monies of all private individuals who have seen their deposit accounts wiped out in the collapse of firms like John Corzine’s MF Global and put all deposit account holders in the country at risk should their bank be faced with a financial windstorm: The NFA in collusion with the banksters, government and judiciary have achieved their goal. The entire concept of “customer segregated funds” is officially, completely, legally dead. Guys, it is OVER. I know that many of you are still cowering in normalcy bias, unable to deal with reality, unable to face the world as it is, but you have GOT to snap out of it. The marketplace is DESTROYED. You CANNOT be in these markets. All legal protections are now officially gone.
The federal appeals court ruled yesterday that not only does BNYM stay at the front of the line, but that using customer segregated funds as collateral is NOT a crime, and that co-mingling customer segregated funds with proprietary funds is NOT fraud.

WILL CHINESE INVESTORS BUILD A CHINESE TOWN IN RURAL MICHIGAN?
Sarah Goodyear May 22, 2012 - A group of Chinese investors reportedly wants to build a 400-unit upscale housing development in rural Michigan designed specifically for Chinese immigrants.
The plan is being floated in the southeastern corner of the state, where a company called Sino Michigan Properties has purchased 300 acres of land in the rural townships of Milan and London, which border the city of Milan, population 6,000. The property is about 20 miles from Ann Arbor, and its proximity to the University of Michigan is evidently part of the draw, according to The Detroit News:
While details of the project remain under wraps, three investors from the firm have met with Milan city officials to discuss extending public water and sewer lines into the townships. They also have shared a blueprint and pictures of a miniature scale version of the community, complete with Chinese and American flags flying at the entrance along Darling Road.

U.S. BANKS TOLD TO MAKE PLANS FOR PREVENTING COLLAPSE
August 11, 2012 By THE EXALTED TRUTH - By Rick Rothacker(Reuters) – U.S. regulators directed five of the country’s biggest banks, including Bank of America Corp and Goldman Sachs Group Inc, to develop plans for staving off collapse if they faced serious problems, emphasizing that the banks could not count on government help. them if they actually do fail. It shows how hard regulators are working to ensure that banks have plans for worst-case scenarios and can act rationally in times of distress. Officials like Lehman Brothers former Chief Executive Dick Fuld have been criticized for having been too hesitant to take bold steps to solve their banks’ problems during the financial crisis.
According to documents obtained by Reuters, the Federal Reserve and the U.S. Office of the Comptroller of the Currency first directed five banks – which also include Citigroup Inc,, Morgan Stanley and JPMorgan Chase & Co – to come up with these “recovery plans” in May 2010. Continued:

EXECUTIVE ORDER PROMISES TO GIVE TOTAL CONTROL OF INTERNET TO (DHS) DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vo-FAxRdPQo&feature=autoplay&list=UUzHkUNLxxMlwdC5660oBZsQ&playnext=1
VPNREVIEWZ REPORTS - August 13, 2012 By THE EXALTED TRUTH PRWeb
In an event that was devoid of the usual pomp and circumstance, President Obama issued an Executive Order, (EO) that effectively handed the Department of Homeland Security, (DHS) the ability to take complete control over the internet, according to reports from VPNReviewz.
According to privacy advocates like the EFF, EPIC, UsenetReviewz, and many others, this order gives the DHS the authority to take complete control of public, private, and non-profit facilities…giving them the ability to close off or limit any and all civilian communications. And, on the National Communications Systems official website, the order is further elaborated on, saying that the infrastructure, “includes wireline, wireless, satellite, cable, and broadcasting, and provides the transport networks that support the Internet and other key information systems.”
CEO of VPNReviewz, Michael Maxstead, agrees that the existing “Emergency Alert System” used in the US probably does need to be brought up to date to reflect existing technologies, but that, “This EO allows too much control over such a large entity.” He further goes on to wonder “And, what will the system be used for once it is completely in place?” He asks this because the order allows the DHS to “prioritize” internet traffic. In order to prioritize the traffic effectively, the controlling and monitoring agency would have to know the origination point, destination, identification, and type of traffic. Essentially everything about the communication.
Most of the EO is wrapped up in legalese detailing the agency that will be created, the fact that the EO is being issued under the authority of the National Security/Emergency Preparedness, NS/EP, (EO 13618) and what agencies will be contributing to the implementation of the additional measures. But also in the EO is the ability for the DHS to mandate the security measures that are used by private, government, and non-profit agencies. Maxstead said that this statement was rather vague, and worried that privacy software, like VPNs and proxies could be effected. But, the truth in that remains to be seen, and many social networks, like Usenet, and torrent related forums, have been abuzz with supposition.

US ATTORNEYS REFUSE TO ASSURE JUDGE THAT THEY ARE NOT ALREADY DETAINING CITIZENS UNDER NDAA
By Tangerine Bolen - 8-9-2012 4:30pm - The US government seems determined to have the power to do away with due process and Americans’ right to a trial. I am one of the lead plaintiffs in the civil lawsuit against the National Defense Authorization Act, which gives the President the power to hold any US citizen anywhere for as long as he wants, without charge or trial. In May, following a March hearing, Judge Katherine Forrest issued an injunction against it; this week, in a final hearing in New York City, US government lawyers essentially asserted even more extreme powers – the power to entirely disregard the Judge and the law. Indeed, on Monday, August 6, Obama’s lawyers filed an appeal to the injunction – a profoundly important development that as of this writing has been scarcely reported.
In the March hearing, the US lawyers had confirmed that yes, the NDAA does give the President the power to lock up people like journalist Chris Hedges and peaceful activists like myself and other plaintiffs. Government attorneys have stated on record that even war correspondents could be locked up indefinitely under the NDAA. Judge Katherine Forrest had ruled for a temporary injunction against an unconstitutional provision in this law – after government attorneys refused to provide assurances to the court that plaintiffs and others would not be indefinitely detained for engaging in first amendment activities. Twice the government has refused to define what it means to be an “associated force”, and it claimed the right to refrain from offering any clear definition of this term, or clear boundaries of power under this law. This past week’s hearing was even more terrifying: incredibly, in this hearing, Obama’s attorneys refused to assure the court, when questioned, that the NDAA’s provision – one that permits reporters and others who have not committed crimes to be detained without trial -- has not been applied by the US government anywhere in the world -- AFTER Judge Forrest’s injunction. In other words, they were saying to a US judge that they could not or would not state whether Obama’s government had complied with the legal injunction that she had lain down before them. Continued:

WE ARE PREPARING FOR MASSIVE CIVIL WAR SAYS DHS INFORMANT
Truther May 5, 2012 "... In a riveting interview on TruNews Radio, Wednesday, private investigator Doug Hagmann said high-level, reliable sources told him the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is preparing for “massive civil war” in America.
“We have problems . . . The federal government is preparing for civil uprising,” he added, “so every time you hear about troop movements, every time you hear about movements of military equipment, the militarization of the police, the buying of the ammunition, all of this is . . . they (DHS) are preparing for a massive uprising.”
Hagmann goes on to say that his sources tell him the concerns of the DHS stem from a collapse of the U.S. dollar and the hyperinflation a collapse in the value of the world’s primary reserve currency implies to a nation of 311 million Americans, who, for the significant portion of the population, is armed.
Uprisings in Greece is, indeed, a problem, but an uprising of armed Americans becomes a matter of serious national security, a point addressed in a recent report by the Pentagon and highlighted as a vulnerability and threat to the U.S. during war-game exercises at the Department of Defense last year, according to one of the DoD’s war-game participants, Jim Rickards, author of Currency Wars: The Making of the Next Global Crisis.
Through his sources, Hagmann confirmed Rickards’ ongoing thesis of a fear of a U.S. dollar collapse at the hands of the Chinese (U.S. treasury bond holders of approximately $1 trillion) and, possibly, the Russians (threatening to launch a gold-backed ruble as an attractive alternative to the U.S. dollar) in retaliation for aggressive U.S. foreign policy initiatives against China’s and Russia’s strategic allies Iran and Syria.
“The one source that we have I’ve known since 1979,” Hagmann continued. “He started out as a patrol officer and currently he is now working for a federal agency under the umbrella of the Department of Homeland Security; he’s in a position to know what policies are being initiated, what policies are being planned at this point, and he’s telling us right now—look, what you’re seeing is just the tip of the iceberg. We are preparing, we, meaning the government, we are preparing for a massive civil war in this country.” Full story:

DHS AND US MILITARY MAKE FINAL PREPARATIONS BEFORE ANNOUNCING MARTIAL LAW
Susanne Posel, Contributor - Activist Post - Wednesday, August 8, 2012 - Informants and military personnel are coming forth anonymously to confirm that martial law “is right around the corner.” However, right now we are under a silent martial law and citizens are reporting strange and unexplainable activity from the US armed forces and multiple federal agencies that point to a covert preparatory operation to completely lock down America in the very near future.
Sources from multiple locations across the nation have independently confirmed that the US military are repositioning soldiers in conjunction with allied foreign troops in the initial stages of martial law.
The US military are secretly moving massive amounts of “equipment” across the country consistently for more than a year. In Phoenix, Arizona, tractor-trailers transporting tanks on public highways have been spotted. One witness stated that he saw these flatbeds multiple times in the month of June. Eyewitness reports are coming primarily from the northern and southern border states. Peter Santilli, an ex-Marine informant who was a specialist in aviation deployed weapons, explains that a refrigerated truck, allocated by the administration department on base, was directed to the commissary, where the unsuspecting driver believed that he was transporting food. The weapon was placed at the head of the trailer, and covered up with either food stores (like cans of soup) or body bags. In the event that the truck is stopped en route, the weapon would be well hidden and go undetected by inspectors on the public highways Continued:

DEATH BY POLONIUM 210 AND TOBACCO MEDICIDE
Arden Gifford MD - Emailer Note: Litvinenko was killed by Polonium 210. This is most powerful radioactive material in world a product of breeder reactors "enriched uranium" that is the "matches" necessary to trigger and detonate atomic
weapons. With this isotope a atomic bomb can be made. Usually it takes months for a breeder reactor
to make it.
The amount of Po 210 necessary to kill Litvinenko cost was about $ 200 million and be a little more
than a tablespoon of the material. It takes a walnut size to trigger a chain reaction for igniting Uranium 235 and Plutonium of atomic weapons. Nobody but governments can buy it. they don'i sell it on the open market.
Polonium 210 is laced into tobacco since 1952 with Zyklon B cyanide in all products. In US alone of 53 million that gas themselves with tobacco Po210. 48 million die of radiation with Cancer heart disease stroke, reducing entitlement by $ 1.8 trillion dollars for US alone. In China and India they use 3x as much Po210 in tobacco, Since the CC has this as covert program of demographic management, nobody in Pathology autopsy reports checks for it because it is
classed as proprietary "flavoring". Systematic mass genocide by Polonium 210 is covert and is state sponsored to control global entitlements killing 500 times more people than Hiroshima Nakasaki on oeangoing basis funding a massive growth industry of cancer treatment. This movie comes in three parts. There was a massive media propaganda release by CC to give public view this was an "isolated event". Guns and assault rifles are nothing by comparison. All hostile fire from all war in US is only about 600.000 US soldiers from 1776 till today.

NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FOLLOWS DHS IN HUGE AMMO PURCHASE
Hollow point bullets designed to cause maximum organ damage
Paul Joseph Watson - Infowars.com - Tuesday, August 14, 2012
UPDATE: DHS Now Covering Up Ammo Purchases?
UPDATE: Social Security Administration To Purchase 174 Thousand Rounds Of Hollow Point Bullets
Why would the National Weather Service need to purchase large quantities of powerful ammo? That’s the question many are asking after the federal agency followed in the footsteps of the Department of Homeland Security in putting out a solicitation for 46,000 rounds of hollow point bullets.
A solicitation which appears on the FedBizOpps website asks for 16,000 rounds of .40 S&W jacketed hollow point (JHP) bullets, noted for their strength, to be delivered to locations in Ellsworth, Maine, and New Bedford, Mass.
A further 6,000 rounds of S&W JHP will be sent to Wall, New Jersey, with another 24,000 rounds of the same bullets heading to the weather station in St. Petersburg, Florida.
The solicitation also asks for 500 paper targets to be delivered to the same locations in Maine, Massachusetts and New Jersey. Continued with update: http://www.infowars.com/national-weather-service-follows-dhs-in-huge-ammo-purchase/

2,362 MILLIONAIRES GOT UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS
By Matt Cover - August 13, 2012 - (CNSNews.com) - There were 2,362 people who earned a million dollars or more in taxable income in 2009 and who also received federal unemployment benefits that year, according to a report by the Congressional Research Service. In fact, these millionaires collectively raked in more than $20 million in unemployment benefits. The Congressional Research Service report--Receipt of Unemployment Insurance by Higher-Income Unemployed Workers (“Millionaires”)--was published on Aug. 2 and was based on the most recent data available from the Internal Revenue Service. “Among tax filers with AGI [Adjusted Gross Income] of $1 million or more, 2,840 reported receipt of unemployment benefit income in 2008 and 2,362 tax filers reported receipt of unemployment benefit income in 2009,” the CRS reported. The CRS reported that millionaires received $20.8 million in federal unemployment benefits in 2009, up from $18.6 million in 2008. That averages out to $8,806 in unemployment benefits per millionaire.
Unemployment insurance is a joint federal-state program and is funded by a payroll tax assessed against all workers. In the four years preceding 2012, according to the Tax Foundation, the unemployment insurance system was in the red. "Between 2008 and 2011, $174 billion was paid in unemployment taxes while $450 billion was paid out in benefits, a gap of $276 billion," the Tax Foundation said. Continued:

US GOVERNMENT PROPOSES LAW MAKING IT ILLEGAL FOR THEM TO KILL YOU
Simon Black, Sovereign Man - Aug. 7, 2012, 3:39 PM Oxford, England - Last Friday, US Congressman Dennis Kucinich introduced HR 6357, a bill which aims to ‘prohibit the extrajudicial killing of United States citizens’ by the federal government. In other words, in the Land of the Free, they need to pass a law to prevent the government from indiscriminately murdering its own citizens. Now if this doesn’t give one reason to pause and consider the distortions of liberty that have taken place in western civilization, I don’t know what will. Think about it: Does a free society send government hit men to eliminate anyone they perceive to be an enemy of the state?
Does a free society have hundreds of police agencies, each with the authority to deprive a man of his life, liberty and property in their sole discretion?
Does a free society have hundreds of thousands of laws, codes, rules, regulations, and policies which effectively criminalize nearly every aspect of one’s existence?
Does a free society lead the world in prison population?
Does a free society hunt down criminals and terrorists by treating its citizens like criminals and terrorists?
Does a free society tell its citizens what foods they are / are not allowed to consume?
Does a free society steal your money at gunpoint to buy bombs that they drop by remote control on brown people in faraway lands? Continued: http://www.sovereignman.com/expat/us-government-proposes-law-making-it-illegal-for-them-to-kill-you-8378

FACTS AND MYTHS ABOUT RENUNCIATION OF US CITIZENSHIP
Simon Black on August 18, 2010 - I was reading the Financial Times on board a recent flight from Vienna to Vilnius. Right smack dab on the front page was an article about the growing movement of Americans who are renouncing their US citizenship. As the article goes, “At the US Embassy in London, there is a waiting list that none of the officials likes to discuss. On the list are Americans hoping to give up their citizenship, as they seek shelter from the Internal Revenue Service.” The rest of the article drives home a prescient point: renunciation of US citizenship is an emerging trend that, while still in its infancy, is growing.

HEART ATTACK INFO ON NEW ASPIRIN
We did not know that you should not lie down while waiting for the EMT Heart attack .
Just a reminder to all: purchase a box, keep one in your car, pocketbook, wallet, bedside, etc.
Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve under the tongue. They work much faster than the tablets.
Why keep aspirin by your bedside? About Heart Attacks. There are other symptoms of an heart attack besides the pain on the left arm. One must also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating, however these symptoms may also occur less frequently. Note: There may be NO pain in the chest during a heart attack
The majority of people (about 60%) who had a heart attack during their sleep, did not wake up.
However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep.
If that happens, immediately dissolve two aspirins in your mouth and swallow them with a bit of water. Afterwards: CALL 911 - say "heart attack!" - say that you have taken 2 aspirins. - phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by - take a seat on a chair or sofa near the front door, and wait for their arrival and . . . Do not lie down

BOEHNER: NO ONE READS GOP PLATFORM
Written by Michael Tennant Tuesday, 28 August 2012 16:35 - Amid all the cheers and jeers for the 2012 Republican Party platform, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) let slip the truth about that document: He hasn’t read it, and he doesn’t know anyone who’s ever read it or any other platform. At a Christian Science Monitor breakfast August 27, Human Events’ John Gizzi asked Boehner about his comfort level with the recently drafted GOP platform.
“The Republican platform is circulating about in different copies, online, in print,” said Gizzi. “Based on the reports you’ve seen, is this a good document to run on fully, and in particular, the parts about auditing the Federal Reserve, number one, and the review of government agencies as to their efficiency without calling for shutting them down. Are those things you feel that Republican House members can run on comfortably?”
Boehner’s response: “Well, I have not seen the platform, but from every indication that I’ve heard I don’t see any major changes in this platform from what we have had in the past. And if it were up to me I would have the platform on one sheet of paper. Have you ever met anybody who read the party platform? I’ve not met ever anybody.”
This, to use Michael Kinsley’s definition of the word, is a gaffe: when a politician inadvertently speaks the truth. For all the haggling over the details of the Republican platform — CNSNews.com writes that “some activists work for months just to win the right to attend the convention” and influence the platform — the fact is that no one of any consequence in the party reads, much less adheres to, the party’s statement of principles. It exists to convince the grassroots that the party leadership is listening to their concerns and intends to use them as a guide for formulating policy. In practice, however, it is largely ignored.

NEW COLD WAR EMERGING BETWEEN U.S., RUSSIA
Opposite positions over Syria set up conflict - 8.26.2012 by F. Michael Maloof staff writer for WND and G2Bulletin
WASHINGTON – Moscow has informed Washington it will not put up with unilateral U.S. sanctions against Russian companies because of their continued trade with Iran, says a report from Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.
The Kremlin has pointed out it has adhered to sanctions passed by the United Nations but will not abide by unilateral sanctions imposed on its companies by the United States or the European Union.
This development is but the latest as the United States and Russia are heading for a confrontation over their opposite positions on Syria. Moscow continues to support the Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad.
The Russians have a strategic base at the Syrian port of Tartous, which is used for intelligence gathering and to service Russian naval ships for access to the Mediterranean Sea. The Russians perceive the U.S. effort to oust al-Assad really is aimed at the Syrian regime’s alliance with Iran.

RUTHERFORD INSTITUTE ATTORNEYS TO FILE CIVIL LAWSUIT OVER WRONGFUL ARREST
08-30-2012 • The Rutherford Institute - Rutherford Institute Attorneys to File Civil Lawsuit Over Wrongful Arrest, Detention in Psych Ward of Marine Brandon Raub Because of Facebook Posts.
CHESTERFIELD, Va. — At the request of Marine veteran Brandon Raub, attorneys for The Rutherford Institute are preparing to file a civil lawsuit in the near future against government officials who were involved in the arrest and detention of the 26-year-old Virginia resident, who was arrested by a swarm of FBI, Secret Service agents and local police on Aug. 16, 2012, and forcibly detained in a psychiatric ward from Aug. 16-Aug. 23 for posting controversial song lyrics and political views on his private Facebook page.
In challenging the government’s actions as unlawful and an egregious abuse of power, Institute attorneys hope to shed light on and put a stop to what appears to be a growing problem in terms of a governmental system seemingly targeting Americans—especially military veterans—for expressing their discontent about the state of affairs in America. Since coming to Raub’s defense, The Rutherford Institute has been contacted by military veterans across the country recounting similar incidents. (More than 20,000 civil commitments were carried out in 2011 in Virginia alone.) In announcing their intention to file a civil suit against government officials, Rutherford Institute attorneys plan to take issue with the manner in which Virginia’s civil commitment statutes are being used to silence individuals engaged in lawfully exercising their free speech rights. Under these laws, a person may only be involuntarily committed upon clear and convincing evidence that he or she has a mental illness, that there is substantial likelihood that the person will cause serious physical harm to himself or others in the near future, and that there is evidence of recent, actual behavior of causing, attempting, or threatening harm to others. Anthony Troy and Brian Fowler with Troutman Sanders LLP of Richmond, Va., will be acting as affiliate attorneys for The Rutherford Institute in preparation of the civil lawsuit.
“Brandon Raub’s case exposed the seedy underbelly of a governmental system that seems to be targeting Americans—especially military veterans—for expressing their discontent over America’s rapid transition to a police state,” said John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute. “As we are learning, Brandon Raub is not the first veteran to be targeted for speaking out against the government, detained against his will—despite having threatened no one, and isolated from his family, friends and attorneys. Hopefully, by holding officials accountable, we can ensure that Brandon is the last to suffer in this way.” Continued: http://www.freedomsphoenix.com/News/117789-2012-08-30-

BARACK OBAMA'S WAR ON AMERICA'S WATER SUPPLY
September 7, 2012 By Suzanne Eovaldi - Barack Obama is keeping his promise to lower the sea levels, and he’s starting with the drought- plagued Midwest where Lake Michigan water is being shipped by the boatloads over to China! By using a little-known loophole in the 2006 Great Lakes Compact, Obama minions are allowing Nestle Company to export precious fresh water out of Lake Michigan to the tune of an estimated $500,000 to $1.8 million per day profit. By draining the precious jewel of the Great Lakes in the middle of America, our federal water managers are allowing the export of our water out of our country across thousands of miles of oceans into the Asian basin plagued by huge population centers that are suffering from their constant lack of fresh water. How’s that for cutting America down to size?
The water is being sold at a “240 times markup”; that is, well over 240 times its production costs. In 2006, then-President George W. Bush signed into law a set of agreements aimed at safeguarding and maintaining the Great Lakes, which hold 20% of the world’s fresh water. But clever bureaucrats and corporate profiteers discovered they could use a loophole to bottle and sell Lake Michigan water, water intended for use by its surrounding states and their watershed. By saying “this loophole allows for Great Lakes water to be labeled a COMMODITY”, our public water officials are allowing the huge supply to be tapped and sold off to companies like Nestle at a very low price. This water can then be flipped for huge profits! Surrounding wildlife and water critters depending on fresh Lake Michigan water now are feeling the shortage, and our much-needed relief from the horrible Midwest drought of 2012 must compete with foreign countries for water that belongs to America! If anyone is wondering if this current Administration really does have the concern of America at its heart, then this little-publicized Water War should be a huge wake-up call for all of us.

EMERGING CHURCH TONY JONES SAYS: DEATH TO HOMESCHOOLING!
A Commentary by Steve Blackwell - Indywatchman - This article by Tony Jones caught my attention because of the title. Why would someone write an article entitled Death to Homeschooling! The article itself simply states the reason he doesn't send his kid to public French immersion, charter school, or private school, or homeschool; but he doesn?t condemn any of the others, only homeschool. By having some knowledge of Tony Jones' liberal leanings, it is my estimation that the title does more than just point out a personal preference, it communicates a strong contempt for homeschooling and those who homeschool.
It is not unusual to find those who prefer not to homeschool, for whatever reason: time constraints, job constraints, perceived inability to teach, they like the time away from the kids, etc., but to pronounce a death sentence on what has proved to be a very successful method of teaching, creating family closeness, transferring personal values, protecting from negative influences, or instilling historic Christian principles, is puzzling, coming from a 'Christian.' Tony doesn't state why he so detest homeschooling, so he allows us to draw our own conclusions. Making use of the term 'death to homeschooling' may actually expose a deeper desire for the state to mandate education, fulfilling Tony's belief in a liberal social gospel, taking us back into the Dark Ages.

JAPAN'S AMBASSADOR-DESIGNATE TO CHINA DIES IN TOKYO - MINISTRY
TOKYO, Sept 16 (Reuters) - Japan's ambassador-designate to China, Shinichi Nishimiya, died on Sunday in a Tokyo hospital, the Foreign Ministry said, three days after he was found unconscious on a Tokyo street.
Doctors were looking into the cause of death, ministry official Takashi Ariyoshi said in a statement, but no other details were available. Nishimiya, 60, was found unconscious on a street near his home on his way to work.
Nishimiya was to have left in mid-October to take over from Uichiro Niwa as Japan's top envoy in Beijing.
While coincidental, Nishimiya's death came as tensions flared up between Japan and China over a disputed group of islands in the East China Sea claimed by both countries.
Anti-Japan protests flared in cities across China for a second day on Sunday, with police using tear gas and water cannon to drive back thousands of protesters in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen, near Hong Kong.
The protests, the latest setback in long-troubled relations between China and Japan, followed Japan's decision on Tuesday to buy the disputed islands, called Senkaku by Tokyo and the Diaoyu by Beijing and which could contain rich gas reserves, from a private Japanese owner.

Armada of international naval power massing in the Gulf as Israel prepares an Iran strike An armada of US and British naval power is massing in the Persian Gulf in the belief that Israel is considering a pre-emptive strike against Iran’s suspected nuclear weapons programme.
The Strait of Hormuz is only 21 miles wide at its narrowest point
Iran plans military exercises in preparation for Israeli strike
By Sean Rayment, Defence Correspondent 10:00PM BST 15 Sep 2012 - Cruisers, aircraft carriers and minesweepers from 25 nations are converging on the strategically important Strait of Hormuz in an unprecedented show of force as Israel and Iran move towards the brink of war. Western leaders are convinced that Iran will retaliate to any attack by attempting to mine or blockade the shipping lane through which passes around 18 million barrels of oil every day, approximately 35 per cent of the world’s oil traded by sea. A blockade would have a catastrophic effect on the fragile economies of Britain, Europe the United States and Japan, all of which rely heavily on oil and gas supplies from the Gulf.
The Strait of Hormuz is one of the world’s most congested international waterways. It is only 21 miles wide at its narrowest point and is bordered by the Iranian coast to the north and the Oman to the south.
In preparation for any pre-emptive or retaliatory action by Iran, warships from more than 25 countries, including the United States, Britain, France, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, will today begin an annual 12-day exercise.

DESPITE WHAT YOU MAY BELIEVE, HEART ATTACKS RARELY HAPPEN "OUT OF THE BLUE"
In fact, your body may be trying to warn you of an impending heart attack for days, weeks, perhaps even a month or two before it occurs. Unfortunately, by the time you actually recognize you’re suffering a heart attack, it could be too late to prevent death or debilitating heart damage. So-called silent heart attacks, with signs and symptoms that are mild or seem unrelated to the heart, have long concerned cardiovascular expert Dr. Chauncey Crandall. So Dr. Crandall recently created a special free video presentation about the four most sinister warning signs to watch for.

Seminar on Iran cancelled after threats Scientists' killers linked to Israel arrested: Iran
TEHRAN: The head of Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guards on Sunday warned of retaliation against the Gulf's strategic Straits of Hormuz, US bases in the Middle East and Israel if his country was to be attacked.
General Mohammad Ali Jafari, speaking in a very rare news conference in Tehran, also said that he believed Iran would abandon the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty should it be targeted for military action. The warnings underlined the high tensions surrounding Iran and its disputed nuclear programme, which Israel has threatened it could seek to disrupt with air strikes, with or without US help.
Jafari said the Straits of Hormuz, the narrow channel at the entrance of the Gulf through which a third of the world's traded oil passes, would be a legitimate target for Iran should it be attacked.

US LOST EIGHT JETS IN WORST AIR LOSS IN ONE DAY SINCE VIETNAM WAR
Published: 17 September, 2012, 20:36 - After Taliban gunmen destroyed eight Harrier jets at a US camp in Helmand Province, the US military has suffered its worst air loss in one day since the Vietnam War.
The Taliban attacked Camp Bastion, the main strategic base in southwestern Afghanistan, on Sept. 14, causing $200 million in damage in the single most destructive strike on a Western base during the war, according to military officials.
Two Marines were killed, nine coalition personnel were wounded and six jets costing between $23 million and $30 million were completely destroyed.
The approximately 15 insurgents, dressed in US Army uniforms, had penetrated the base Friday night and instantly began shooting and setting fire to parked Navy-AV-8B Harrier jets when they were inside. Three refueling stations were severely damaged during the attack.
“It was a running gun battle for a while, two and a half hours, nonetheless they were able to get to the aircraft before we could intercept them,” a military official told the New York Times. Using machine guns, rocket propelled grenades and possibly mortars, most of the aircrafts were demolished. Continued: http://rt.com/usa/news/us-jets-attack-taliban-343/


TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT ABOUT LIBYA
On Tue, Sep 18, 2012 at 12:32 PM, <carolyn@tapistree.com> wrote: First of all, you need to know that I am fully aware of the secret powers that be which are usually behind events in the world, and those powers are very complex, but I can speak for Libya because of our personal experiences. My husband is Libyan (now a citizen of the USA) and I lived in Libya from 1965 until I left in 1970, just after Ghaddafy took over. We left for health reasons since my husband was allergic to the climate there but did well here in the USA. At the time Ghaddafy took over we watched as he started out, seemingly sly but fair at first, except that he obviously turned on the Americans who helped him to power almost immediately. He seemed to have Libya's interests at heart, but quickly turned into a ruthless dictator. He did some good things, and he stood up to Western bullying, but he was also brutal with his own people and living in Libya became a hell-on-earth. Only particular areas where his tribe reigned benefited from his grace, but the eastern section, in particular, went wanting terribly. I can't begin to tell you about it here.
Within a decade, Libyans began to organize outside the country to oppose Ghaddafy for the best of reasons. In 1984 my non-activist brother-in-law was assassinated by Ghaddafy's henchmen in Cyprus, because at the beginning of every April Ghaddafy would send out hit teams to assassinate Libyans all over the world just to show that he could. Some of these attacks came close to home, and at one time the new president, Mohammed Mogarief, stayed as a guest at our home. All Libyan outside Libya had to be very cautious.
You need to know that the Libyans have been struggling for over 40 years to get rid of Ghaddafy and none really believed it would ever come to pass or that anyone would be able to break the grip of terror he held over the entire country. It was incredible to all when suddenly the Libyans lost their fear and went to real battle with Ghaddafy. I stand all amazed at their courage and dedication, and at the fact that they actually pulled it off, but not without the West's help. France is actually credited more than America for helping the most, and the Libyans are so grateful. One thing for absolutely certain---Ambassador Stevens was NEVER tortured, sodomized, or dragged through the streets of Benghazi! Benghazi has far too much respect for him and for America. Note the absence of clubs, weapons, or even fists in the pictures you sent.
The Libyans, like Ghaddafy, aren't stupid. The Libyans are fabulous people -- generous, kind, and fair-minded as well as skilled in strategic thinking. They are watching their backs and trying to maintain control over their country, which is difficult because most of their treasure has been stolen by the Ghaddafy mob and is still being used against them, possibly even in stories such as you just sent. Only God knows what will ensue, but, for now, we mustn't see a boogie-man behind every tree. Caution is good, but paranoia isn't. [email from Carolyn]

OBAMA WINS RIGHT TO INDEFINITELY DETAIN AMERICANS UNDER NDAA
Published: 18 September, 2012, 19:55 - A lone appeals judge bowed down to the Obama administration late Monday and reauthorized the White House’s ability to indefinitely detain American citizens without charge or due process.
Last week, a federal judge ruled that an temporary injunction on section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 must be made permanent, essentially barring the White House from ever enforcing a clause in the NDAA that can let them put any US citizen behind bars indefinitely over mere allegations of terrorist associations. On Monday, the US Justice Department asked for an emergency stay on that order, and hours later US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit Judge Raymond Lohier agreed to intervene and place a hold on the injunction.
The stay will remain in effect until at least September 28, when a three-judge appeals court panel is expected to begin addressing the issue. On December 31, 2011, US President Barack Obama signed the NDAA into law, even though he insisted on accompanying that authorization with a statement explaining his hesitance to essentially eliminate habeas corpus for the American people.
“The fact that I support this bill as a whole does not mean I agree with everything in it,” President Obama wrote. “In particular, I have signed this bill despite having serious reservations with certain provisions that regulate the detention, interrogation, and prosecution of suspected terrorists.” Continued:

ARMADA OF INTERNATIONAL NAVAL POWER MASSING IN THE GULF AS ISRAEL PREPARES AN IRAN STRIKE
An armada of US and British naval power is massing in the Persian Gulf in the belief that Israel is considering a pre-emptive strike against Iran’s suspected nuclear weapons programme.
By Sean Rayment, Defence Correspondent - 10:00PM BST 15 Sep 2012 - Cruisers, aircraft carriers and minesweepers from 25 nations are converging on the strategically important Strait of Hormuz in an unprecedented show of force as Israel and Iran move towards the brink of war. Western leaders are convinced that Iran will retaliate to any attack by attempting to mine or blockade the shipping lane through which passes around 18 million barrels of oil every day, approximately 35 per cent of the world’s oil traded by sea. A blockade would have a catastrophic effect on the fragile economies of Britain, Europe the United States and Japan, all of which rely heavily on oil and gas supplies from the Gulf.

MILITARY CONFLICT 'LOOMS' BETWEEN CHINA AND JAPAN
War between China and Japan looms, with neither power willing to back down over a disputed chain of islands, expert warns.
By Malcolm Moore, Beijing - 3:16PM BST 27 Sep 2012 - The spat over the Diaoyu or Senkaku islands has escalated dramatically in the past month with violent protests across China.
But with a national election approaching in Japan, and a change of leadership in China, politicians on both sides have refused to step back from the brink, afraid that they will appear weak.
"There is a danger of China and Japan having a military conflict," said Yan Xuetong, one of China's most influential foreign policy strategists, and a noted hawk.
"One country must make a concession. But I do not see Japan making concessions. I do not see either side making concessions. Both sides want to solve the situation peacefully, but neither side can provide the right approach," he added
He warned that unless one side backs down, there could be a repeat of the Falklands Conflict in Asia. Continued:

SYRIAN REFUGEES CLASH WITH ORDANIAN POLICE
By JAMAL HALABY | Associated Press – Tue, Sep 25, 2012.. - AMMAN, Jordan (AP) — Angry over harsh living conditions in their desert tent camp in Jordan, dozens of Syrian refugees clashed with Jordanian police, hurled stones and smashed charity offices and a hospital, officials and refugees said Tuesday.
The rioting late Monday in the Zaatari camp was the worst violence since the facility opened in July near the Jordan-Syria border. About 26 policemen were injured by stones thrown by the refugees, a police official said.
A Syrian refugee in the camp, Abu Nawras, said police fired tear gas to disperse the protesters who were demanding improved conditions, better food and education for their children.
The camp, which hosts about 32,000 Syrians who fled the civil war at home, has seen smaller protests in the past weeks as refugees mostly complained about snakes and scorpions, and demanded their tents be replaced with trailers so they can better protect themselves from the scorching sun, cold nights and ubiquitous dust.
Hundreds of thousands have fled the chaos in Syria as the uprising against President Bashar Assad turned increasingly violent, with activists saying nearly 30,000 people have died since the conflict began in March 2011. Jordan alone has taken in some 200,000 Syrians — the largest number in the region — while Turkey, Lebanon and Iraq have taken in the rest.

CONNECTING DOTS: US PATENT OFFICE ADMITS ENERGY SUPPRESSION, THE "TECHNETRONIC" SMART GRID AND SMART METERS
September 17, 2012 - This message you are reading is perhaps the most important I have ever written to date, summarizing the better part of one full year of research. (In brief: The past two weeks has been packed with major news & updates, as more people wake up and speak truth. Over the next couple days, I will send a separate update on the news. Last weekend we also screened 25 minutes of rough cut at an outdoor festival, which was very well-received. Our work continues and there will be updates soon on the film & new website.)
In this email I have included all of the relevant documentation and links. While all of it is fact-based and verifiable, I encourage you to dig deeper for yourself, so you can really come to your own solid conclusions. Coming closer to the truth in your own way will help you stand tall in your convictions, even amongst a sea of lies, corporate rhetoric, and directed propaganda.
I will summarize two key areas of my research, with historical facts. Connecting these dots is paramount to help us to understand why these corporate forces have been so committed to an ubiquitous globalized smart grid installation, which does not save energy, is making people ill, jacks up your bills, causes fires, is neither tested nor approved, nullifies your privacy rights, and instantly creates massive hacking vulnerability.

DALLAS FED: TOP 5 WALL STREET BANKS OWN MORE THAN 50% OF US GDP
Alexander Higgins - March 25, 2012 - The Dallas Federal Reserve blasts too big to fail as a perversion of capitalism, outlining how Wall Street bailouts resulted in an unprecedented concentration of wealth.
The Dallas Federal Reserve has just released its damaging annual report titled “Choosing the Road to Prosperity – Why We Must End Too Big to Fail—Now” which reads much like a manifesto of the Occupy Wall Street movement.
The report holds no punches in pointing out the concentration of wealth that has been amassed in nation’s top Wall Street Banks following the bank bailouts and directly calls out too big to fail as a perversion of capitalism.
If it wasn’t for the pro-federal reserve talking points in the annual report, you could replace the title on the report with “Why We Occupy” and use it as a handout for the Occupy movement.
In any case, the Dallas Federal Reserve’s annual report hammers home the case of why the “Too Big To Fail” Wall Street banks need to be broken up to restore a more balanced approach to economic equality in the United States.

EPA's FOUR GALLON MINIMUM MANDATE (MUST READ TO PROTECT YOURSELF)
By Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) - 09/17/12 01:48 PM ET
The latest mandate handed down from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is so ridiculous, even I was shocked. The EPA has now mandated how much gasoline you must buy at certain gas stations. Say hello to the Obama Administration’s four gallon minimum. This unprecedented EPA overreach applies when filling up at a gas station that provides both E15 and E10, gasoline with 15 or 10 percent of ethanol, respectively, from the same hose.
At the insistence of the ethanol industry, the Obama Administration is pushing E15 into the marketplace, regardless of the serious concerns about the fuel’s impact on drivers. From its inception, E15 is a study in the consequences of government interference in the marketplace. The EPA’s decision to set a minimum purchase requirement is just the most recent example... The EPA approved E15 for sale in the U.S. using a partial waiver, meaning it is only approved for some vehicles on the road— cars 2001 and later.
Most of our gasoline contains only 10 percent ethanol. Increasing the ethanol content will harm older vehicles and it is downright dangerous for small engines like those found in boats, lawnmowers, or motorcycles. E15 is like metal in a microwave for a small engine. Full story:

SHOCK FINDINGS IN NEW GMO STUDY:
RATS FED LIFETIME OF GM CORN GROW HORRIFYING TUMORS, 70% OF FEMALES DIE EARLY
Wednesday, September 19, 2012 - by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger - Editor of NaturalNews.com (See all articles...) Eating genetically modified corn (GM corn) and consuming trace levels of Monsanto's Roundup chemical fertilizer caused rats to develop horrifying tumors, widespread organ damage, and premature death. That's the conclusion of a shocking new study that looked at the long-term effects of consuming Monsanto's genetically modified corn.
The study has been deemed "the most thorough research ever published into the health effects of GM food crops and the herbicide Roundup on rats." News of the horrifying findings is spreading like wildfire across the internet, with even the mainstream media seemingly in shock over the photos of rats with multiple grotesque tumors... tumors so large the rats even had difficulty breathing in some cases. GMOs may be the new thalidomide.
"Monsanto Roundup weedkiller and GM maize implicated in 'shocking' new cancer study" wrote The Grocery, a popular UK publication. (http://www.thegrocer.co.uk/topics/technology-and-supply-chain/monsant...)
It reported, "Scientists found that rats exposed to even the smallest amounts, developed mammary tumors and severe liver and kidney damage as early as four months in males, and seven months for females."
The Daily Mail reported, "Fresh row over GM foods as French study claims rats fed the controversial crops suffered tumors." (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2205509/Fresh-fears-GM...)
It goes on to say: "The animals on the GM diet suffered mammary tumors, as well as severe liver and kidney damage. The researchers said 50 percent of males and 70 percent of females died prematurely, compared with only 30 percent and 20 percent in the control group." Continued:

GMO RESEARCHERS ATTACKED, EVIDENCE DENIED, AND A POPULATION AT RISK
Jeffrey M Smith Sott.net Tue, 01 Nov 2011 16:00 CDT - Biologist Arpad Pusztai had more than 300 articles and 12 books to his credit and was the world's top expert in his field. But when he accidentally discovered that genetically modified (GM) foods are dangerous, he became the biotech industry's bad-boy poster child, setting an example for other scientists thinking about blowing the whistle. ... The results of Pusztai's work were supposed to become the required testing protocols for all of Europe. But when he fed supposedly harmless GM potatoes to rats, things didn't go as planned. Within just 10 days, the animals developed potentially pre-cancerous cell growth, smaller brains, livers and testicles, partially atrophied livers, and damaged immune systems. Moreover, the cause was almost certainly side effects from the process of genetic engineering itself. In other words, the GM foods on the market, which are created from the same process, might have similar affects on humans. Full story:http://www.sott.net/articles/show/237064-GMO-Researchers

100 DAYS UNTIL TAXMAGEDDON
Sunday will mark the start of the 100-day countdown to “Taxmageddon” – the date the largest tax hikes in the history of America will take effect. They will hit families and small businesses in three great waves on January 1, 2013:
First Wave: Expiration of 2001 and 2003 Tax Relief
In 2001 and 2003, the GOP Congress enacted several tax cuts for small business owners, families, and investors (later re-upped by President Obama and Democrat Congress in 2010). The following tax hikes will occur on January 1, 2013:
Personal income tax rates will rise on January 1, 2013. The top income tax rate will rise from 35 to 39.6 percent (this is also the rate at which the majority of small business profits are taxed). The lowest rate will rise from 10 to 15 percent. All the rates in between will also rise. Itemized deductions and personal exemptions will again phase out, which has the same mathematical effect as higher marginal tax rates. The full list of marginal rate hikes is below:

IMMIGRANT REQUESTS STRAIN CONSULATES, SCHOOLS
By ELLIOT SPAGAT (AP) - September 25, 2012 2:19 PM EDT - SAN DIEGO (AP) — Schools in Yakima, Wash., are taking nearly a month to deliver transcripts to former students. The Mexican consulate in Denver introduced Saturday hours last month after passport applications spiked by one-third. San Diego public schools added five employees in a new office to handle records requests.
Schools and consulates have been flooded with requests for documents after President Barack Obama announced a new program allowing young people living in the country illegally to apply for two-year renewable work permits. Up to 1.7 million people may qualify, which would be the broadest stroke to bring illegal immigrants out of the shadows in more than 25 years. Applicants — some eager to get in line before November's presidential elections — are finding they may have to wait a few weeks longer for a prize that has eluded them for years.
The clamor for documents is an early sign that the policy is highly popular. The Obama administration said this month that it approved the first 29 applications among more than 82,000 received since it began accepting requests Aug. 15.
The Mexican consulate in Los Angeles issued 17,444 passports and consular identification cards in August, up 63 percent from the same period last year, said Consul General David Figueroa, who attributes the entire increase to the new policy. The wait for a passport appointment at the largest Mexican consulate grew from one or two days to 40 days last month, then fell to 30 days after the consulate hired five employees to handle the increased workload, opened its main office on Saturdays and extended hours at satellite offices to seven days a week from five.

PINE NUTS CHIPS FOR THE BRAIN COMING TO A STORE NEAR YOU
By McAvoy Layne - Special to the Bonanza - INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — “I'll take a Fantasy Football chip and a chip to understand women, thank you.” Yes my friend, digital neural implants that enhance cognitive skills are not far off, a mere two or three years, according to this month's Journal of Neural Engineering. They're implanting these chips in monkeys today and darned if those monkeys aren't wanting to register to vote.
The cortex of the brain, that part of the brain in the front that does or does not do algebra, is the area they're working on right now. Co-authors of this study are Robert E. Hampson, Sam A. Deadwyler, Ioan Opris and Lucas Santos, all of Wake Forest; Dr. Berger, Vasilis Marmarelis and Dong Song of U.S.C.; and Greg A. Gerhardt of the University of Kentucky. (Dong Song is a great name.) Did you know, all eight Nobel Prize winners in science who are of Chinese descent either were or subsequently became American citizens.
But let's get back to the monkeys. With the help of a little chip, monkey business acumen increased by as much as 20 percent. Just think how a little chip you could pick up at Radio Shack might improve your stock market acumen. Looking ahead to that chip that might help us to understand women, well, we might have to wait awhile for that one.

OBAMA USDA OFFERING WOMEN, HISPANIC FARMERS OVER $1.3 BILLION IN DISCRIMINATION PAYOUTS
Published: 12:17 AM 09/25/2012 - By Caroline May - The Daily Caller. - As part of “a new era of civil rights” at the Department of Agriculture, Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack announced Monday that Hispanic and women farmers and ranchers who believe USDA discriminated against them can file claims to get a piece of at least $1.33 billion in cash awards and tax relief payments and up to $160 million in farm debt relief, beginning this week.
Women and Hispanic ranchers and farmers who feel the agency denied their loan or loan servicing applications because of their race or gender at various periods from 1981 to 2000 can file claims alleging discrimination from Sept. 24, 2012, to March 25, 2013, for a slice of the payout.
“Hispanic and women farmers who believe they have faced discriminatory practices from the USDA must file a claim by March 25, 2013 in order to have a chance to receive a cash payment or loan forgiveness,” Vilsack explained in a statement Monday. “The opening of this claims process is part of USDA’s ongoing efforts to correct the wrongs of the past and ensure fair treatment to all current and future customers.”
In February 2011, Vilsack announced the historic “path to justice for Hispanic and women farmers” to offer them an outlet to receive compensation for past wrongs without having to go to federal court.
