Latest: Watson's Economic Crisis Report - II
This is the second in my Economic Crisis Report series. This report deals primarily with the ongoing global economic crisis and the trends that the world has seen, is seeing and probably will see. We will be discussing how some are working to get their hands on the FDIC insurance fund, leaving ordinary folks out in the cold if their bank fails. I talk about recent and very important events with the Dodd-Frank reform act and how Wall Street is seriously bucking those reforms as well as the still gargantuan problem of Derivatives.
This paper also talks about the Eurozone and the ongoing crisis there as well as deep fissures now being seen in the BRIC nations. We discuss the recent and surprising decline in our fiscal deficit (and the real reason why it happened). The looming municipal failures (with some time spent on Detroit) as well as a special addendum that will give readers some background to a major, major looming problem that no one yet is talking about.
This report is $19.95 to newcomers and is 56 pages in length. But if you have ever purchased a report from me in the past, the price is only $12.00. Think of it as a loyalty discount to those who have assisted and been blessed by this site in the past. Please read carefully the payment page for details on how to get your discount! If you don't read it, you don't get your discount!!!
When this all went down at the beginning, I had to warn all of you just how bad this crisis really was. Many of you watched the evening news, saw the stories slowly leave the front page but a few dedicated bloggers went on to tell you that this crisis is far, far from over. The worst is yet to come. This author has done a lot of writing on the subject and while many of my readers thought I was wearing a tin foil hat for the past two years, the fact remains. This crisis has not gone away, rather it has gotten more critical and is only going to get even worse. Now millions of gallons of radioactive water are flowing into the Oceans and there are fears of nuclear chain reaction.Dr. Cornel West Talks Dr. King And Obama
Many of my readers thought I was nuts when I said that the Japanese race, for the most part is going to cease to be if a solution cannot be found or the people are not allowed to evacuate.
'If and when the corium reaches the Tokyo aquifer, serious and expedient discussions will have to take place about evacuating 40 million people' - Russia TodayWhat I can tell you is that far off the radar screen such discussions did ensue right after the disaster. There was an enormous amount of radiation released. Our Navy personnel got sick and many still experience problems that the US navy refuses to diagnose. The Navy still propounds its lie to the people. The radiation levels were so high that the 7th fleet had to move their ships out of the area for safety reasons it was not a small amount of radiation as the Navy is claiming.
What is the real story here? Its simple. Either Japan gets this problem under control or the radiation in Japan will destroy the Japanese culture and people. I cannot stress this enough, this has the potential to be a major disaster but no one has taken it seriously. Not Japan, who has some strong reasons for covering up its activities there. Not the US, who is beholden to the Nuclear Power industry and to other Lobbyists who don't want to alarm people; Kill them yes - but don't alarm them. Not the Europeans who are busy with their own economic problems. The Russians are concerned for good reason, Japan is very close to Fukushima. The Japanese even approached Russia for a place to put many of its people when the stuff hits the fan; perhaps the Island of Sakalin.
All of this was kept very hush-hush and still is. So look for the possibility of quiet increases in money that goes to house large numbers if 'immigrants' here in the US in the months and years ahead. I say this again, Japan is going to have to get this situation under control with more than 'duct tape and kickstands' and that is going to require a major international undertaking, something that the Japanese will resist and have resisted because of what an international team is likely to find out that would explain many of the anomalies that have taken place since the disaster.
I told one reader of mine that I would really avoid seafood out of the Pacific until this crisis ends or when we have some reliable testing done that is verified by more than just agencies from the US government, who has hidden much of the negative information behind planted stories meant to disinform us in our mainstream media.
What I am not saying is that you are going to get sick if you eat it. I am saying that there is a real good chance that you will get cancer many years down the road if you ingest enough radioactive seafood. And weather the US acknowledges it or not, much of the fish in the Pacific Ocean is radioactive as a result of Fukushima. You say you will take your chances? That's fine. But go and ask a cancer doctor what its like to die of stomach or intestinal cancer and make an informed choice. Is that shrimp salad really worth it?
I say again. The powerful lobbyists have been able to buy off our Media and Federal officials to keep you in the dark that this is a major ONGOING crisis that could make large parts of Japan completely uninhabitable, send millions, perhaps billions of more gallons of radioactive water into the Ocean and seriously undermine the Oceans fragile ecosystems.
We cannot rely on 'good luck' to keep this crisis from getting to the point where millions die as a result of it. We need real action and real solutions from around the world not silent inaction from leaders whose pockets are stuffed with cash from the Nuke Power Lobby.
Dr. Cornel West to March Organizers: Get Off the Obama Plantation
“If Martin Luther King Jr. were to show up” at this month’s commemoration of the 1963 March on Washington, said academic and activist Dr. Cornel West, “what he would say would be so subversive that those on the Obama plantation would be revealed for who they are, which is obsessed with career, obsessed with access, and obsessed with status as opposed to being obsessed with the suffering of poor Black brothers and sisters.” Appearing on the latest edition of Black Agenda Television, Dr. West said Rev. Al Sharpton “and so many others” will not address the New Jim Crow, privatization of education and gentrification because of their ties to the White House. Preacher-educator Michael Eric Dyson and MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry have “become sycophants” of the administration, said West. - BAR
Exorcisms Rise In Bay Area
Today as evil becomes more pronounced, violence rises around the world, bribery becomes a tool of statecraft and kidnapping and rape becomes a tool for evangelism in some religions. the last thing the devil would want is for Christians to get to the root of the source of all of this evil, the devil and the fallen angels and evil spirits that work for him. In Cameroon, they have closed down churches that performed exorcisms. Certainly there is a great deal of 'chicanery' and flim-flamism in many of the exorcists that claim powers to cast out evil and the spirits associated with it. In fact, I would say that about 80% of it is fake, stage managed fakery to turn a quick buck. But that does not mean that all excorcisms are fake.
This is one of the powers that Christ promised his disciples and also, believe it or not, one of his commandments to the same.
And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
Yes, this is something that is not done much anymore as people's belief in literal, spiritual evil has waned with the secularization/socialization of the gospel message turning it into a touchy feely message of worldly 'happiness' rather than a deep spiritual battle against evil.JCPenny: How Long Before Bankruptcy?
Why is this so important? Because the devil does not like to be 'fingered' in his evil enterprises. He does not like to be directly challenged and certainly does not like to have battle done directly with his servants and his host of fallen angels. He knows he is far more effective when folks don't know its him directing the show. He opeates in the shadows rather than the light. It has been said tha the devils greatest trick is to convince people he doesn't exist. This may not be scriptural but I think its very, very true.
Who is the devil? What follows here is a simple, brief but hopefully concise look at who the devil is and who he is not.
The devil is not a creature with horns growing out of his head and cloven hooves. While many like to use that rather comical imagery (even me) to identify the subject as being satanic, the real devil is far from this. In fact, the devil was the most beautiful creature God ever created. But his name was not always the devil. Devil is more of a title than a name, or more accurately it was the title given to him after he fell from God's graces. The name Satan comes from the word adversary or accuser. Here is how Strong's render this word
H7854So the devil is the opponent mankind. In the Book of Job we see him take up the role of chief accuser of Job, God's faithful servant. Pointing fingers and lobbing accusations at him was what was recorded in that most ancient book. As far as we Christians are concerned this is his primary job with us. He accuses us constantly before God.
From H7853; an opponent; especially (with the article prefixed) Satan, the arch enemy of good: - adversary, Satan, withstand.
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.But once again, who was the devil before hand? What was he? Now before I start let me say this. There have been many occult and satanic organizations who have worked very hard to rehabilitate Lucifer and turn him into something that is good. They call him the bringer of light. Here is an example. Alice Baily started a company called Lucifer Publishing. She later changed to the Lucius Trust. I give this aside only to show that among occultists and even some satanists, Lucifer is seen as the bringer of light and wisdom and he is greatly revered as 'god' by many of these groups.
It should be no surprise that many of these groups have begun a campaign to rehabilitate Lucifer in the eyes of many Christians making him into a good spirit and one that brings light. Where do we get the term Lucifer from? Well, it comes from the translation in the KIng James Version of the Bible. The word comes from the Hebrew word Heylel which means brightness like the morning star.
H1966This is the only place (Isaiah chapter 14) the word is used in the scriptures. The proverb was directed to the King of Babylon (a subject I have talked about many times before) but at verse 12, the focus shifts and describes an entity who seriously wanted to de-throne God and become God himself (vs. 14). In short, behind the King of Babylon was another power, a spiritual power who was arrogant enough to try and take over all things. The fate of this spirit is also told in this passage (vs 14).
From H1984 (in the sense of brightness); the morning star: - lucifer.
The only thing I can tell you is that many of those in service to evil often use the name Lucifer and ascribe to their God who brings light to what they view as the 'darkness' of Jehovah, Christ and his followers. Let the reader be the Judge as to whom these passages refer to. It is not a coincidence that even Satanists often call their religion 'Luciferianism'. If any Christian cannot see the danger here and goes on about how the devil's name is not Lucifer, I can only tell you that among those who have rejected Christ and the Gospel, that is the name they use for their God. Be wise and discern the truth.
Some of you will ask me why I say that the devil was the most Beautiful creatures God ever created. This comes from another proverb this time taken up against the King of Tyre (the spiritual power behind the throne). For this we must go over to the book of Ezekiel. Go and read chapter 28. In this passage we note that this proverb (lamentation) is directed at two different entities. The first part to the Prince of Tyrus and then the second part to the King of Tyrus. Once again as with the passage in Isiah, the first part of the passage refers to the temporal system/leader and the second part to the spiritual power behind the throne. We note this by the simple fact that we see it clearly in this passage here in Ezekiel. I am going to lift a bit of it here as it is most instructive.
Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.In this passage we can clearly see does not refer to any human entity. It refers to to an angel (Cherub) who lost favor with God by virtue of his pride and beauty. This was a creature that was in the Garden of Eden (as was the serpent). So here we see an angelic creature full of wisdom and beauty who was once in the very presence of God being cast out and who will be ultimately destroyed.
I have talked much about these things before in other articles and since I don't like repeating myself I will pass on some links to you.
Each of these pieces will help Christians who do not really understand these things to get a real good look at the spiritual war going on and just where we as Christians stand. Study of these things are going to be ever more important as the days become more and more evil and men more and more deny the existence of real spiritual evil and embrace it in their never ending quest for moral relativism. This evil will not stop with killing Christians, but hates every singly man who was born of women to the death. I cannot stress this enough.
Mankind is deeply hated by all of the devil's fallen host for reasons I have talked about many times on this site. To put this in todays terms, we are talking about extraterrestrial beings who intend on creating a series of extincitionl level events to destroy mankind. In Biblical terms, the devil and his fallen angels are going to steal kill and destroy mankind and earth until there is nothing left.
For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
If you want more study on these issues the above links will provide many hours of study material and help Christians to better understand what we are dealing with in today's world.
The devil is real. He has real people who worship him and some of them are very, very powerful people whose names you would instantly recognize. So know whom your enemy is and use the weapons God has given you.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
Grace and peace to all who call upon the Lord in humble sincerity.
Guardian Destroys Snowden Documents On Threats From UK Govt
The UK was probably threatened by the US to demand this happen.
How can we see these terrorism provisions are abused. Look at how the UK treated Greenwalds domestic partner. They held him on terrorism charges. The guy never bombed anyone, or even thought about it but like all Tyrannies, they use the law to repress any kind if dissent. They tried to get to Greewald via his partner.
As my mother would put it, 'these are some low down, dirty dogs'.
This is so sad to see nations who once upheld human rights, the rule of law and a free press behave like the Soviet KGB or the East German Stasi. Both of those systems fell apart on the weight of their own repression and incompetence.
The US and UK will soon follow them to the dustbin of history if they cannot remember what made each so great in the past. I can tell you want did not make either nation great: Behaving like those afrementioned empires that collpased.
Read this and see how the Obama administration 'classified' even the discussions between the US and UK over this blatant act of intimidation. This is how this President has consistently abused his power as President using the classification system as a shield against repugnant acts he knows his supporters would recoil at, many of which are almost certainly illegal.
Yesterday I watched one of the best films on Nazi Germany I have ever seen, and I have seen just about all of them. It's hard to find and can only be had on Video tape. It's called Inside the Third Reich based on the book by Hitler's architect and armaments minister, Albert Speer. The movie is very good in that, I think it really shows you how an ordinary working person with few political ideas or opinions can get sucked down into a tyranny. Free of the comical and ludicrous stereotypes so typical in many of Hollywood's movies about that era, this one better shows (in just about 300 minutes) just how Germans and Germany got swept into darkness. Just like the US under Obama and the UK under Cameron are doing now to their respective nations. Forget about guys in SS uniforms showing up overnight. It's not going to happen, rather each of these men are using their power to bring about the exact same methods of political repression, surveillance and ultimate evil that we saw back then.
Keep this in mind. Many, if not most Germans saw Hitler as a savior. They loved him and darn near worhipped him as he took away all of their rights and erected a system of surveillance and repression.
Polio Outbreak Hits Somalia
This is a major outbreak in that if 105 people have shown symptoms then many, many more are carriers and given the unstable situation and the existence of some remote areas in Somali, the problem may be worse.I find it strange that this outbreak is occurring just when Doctors Without Borders has decided to shut down operations in Somalia. Polio is a crippling disease that targets children and children have long been targeted by some nations as well as major elitist covert biological warfare programs. The idea is to limit population growth in target nations. You do that by killing children and bringing in birth control methods. I see some real problems here with the sudden outbreak and 'miracle money' now behind eradication. More here and here.Thousands Of Chileans Demonstrates Against The 'Devil's Seeds'
Is this Polio eradication or Black African eradication?
Another factoid is that the UK has now launched a major polio vaccination campaign. Israel as well has begun a nationwide campaign. This appears to be a global campaign. Is it coming to America? Well, before you go and run out to get your kids vaccinated, I strongly recommend you read this one, very carefully.
Study the past if you want to look at our future. Those who bought my last Economic Crisis update got a look at what I called 'The German Memorandum" that delves into some things that provide some background to what is happening today.
These GMO's are really bad news in more ways than one. The world has figured it out, but the US is the one behind pushing this evil on the world all for the profits that go with patents. Let us not forget that it is this administration that hired Monsanto executives to the high ranks of the FDA and has used his State Department to push these dangerous products that make these multinationals a mint onto the worlds farmlands. One of the things we found out in the Wikileaks dump from State was just how much of a puppet the US Department of State is to US multinationals and from it we see why those cables were classified. It wasn't to protect sources and methods, but to keep a secret partnership hidden from the American voter. The partnership between Corporations and the State to make a buck screwing up the Planet.
Time Reporter Advocates Murder Of Antiwar Figure
Pix Source: Presidenza della Repubblica
The statements by this reporter are so typical of the mindset of MSM reporters. So many of them are nothing more than propaganda arms of the America's military-intelligence industrial complex. For many.. they are not reporters, history shows us that, at least in the past, they are often merely well paid propagandists and advocate the very crimes that is turning the world against the US.
Read your history.
Propaganda goes deeper delves into not just lying, but deliberately NOT telling you what is really going on on that you are not being told about. How many people have died as a result of our invasion of Iraq? How many? Do you know what the UN report has stated? Others?
Now here is an amazing thing. Americans can support a war based on falsified intelligence (more here) and not even know how many people their ignorance has killed!!
That is how propaganda works, getting you, the voter, to support our bloodbaths in a flurry of media concocted propaganda and false patriotism that is bankrupting the nation and making the American nation into an object of hatred and derision all of the world? Do you want to see an America continue to head in that direction? I don't. America's enemies do and work very hard at it, helped by the distracted and intellectually lazy American voter. Those who want to destroy our once great nation are using the ignorance of the American people against them in a way most would never figure out if you drew them a picture - even then, most Americans wouldn't look at it if it didn't have a sexy picture on it.
Yes, America, there is an ocean of blood on your hands. The Devil got you to believe all that blood was really 'patriotic paint', so you dipped your hands in it with reckless abandon and supported all manner of crimes and abominations against people who never hated us...
...until you in your pitiful ignorance stepped in.
Now you will have to answer for it not just to your victims but to the living God who will require their blood at your hands.
The Sins of Manesseh were not pardoned.
Moreover Manasseh shed innocent blood very much, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another; beside his sin wherewith he made Judah to sin, in doing that which was evil in the sight of the LORD.
And also for the innocent blood that he shed: for he filled Jerusalem with innocent blood; which the LORD would not pardon.
My strong advice to all of my Countrymen who are quick to support our bloody wars which are based more on spoil and contracts rather than on freedom and democracy is to heed the words of the Wise Man (Solomon).Egypt: The Horror Continues Unabated
My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not. If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause: Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit: We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil: Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse: My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path: For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood.What are abominations to the Lord?
These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
Don't run with the pack. The pack is almost always heading in the wrong direction, being under the direction of the prince of this world (he who steals, kills and destroys). Rather, seek the ways of peace (with all men, including Muslims), righteousness and reconciliation, not bloodshed, loot, war contracts, torture and hate.
Deu_19:10; Deu_19:13; Deu_21:8; Deu_21:9; 1Sa_19:5; 1Ki_2:31; 2Ki_21:16; 2Ki_24:4; Est_8:12; Psa_94:21; Psa_106:38; Pro_1:11; Pro_6:17; Isa_59:7; Jer_7:6; Jer_22:3; Jer_22:17; Jer_26:15; Dan_12:13; Joe_3:19; Jon_1:14; Mat_27:4; Mat_27:24;
And things are only going to get worse, guaranteed. The Junta has declared war on the Muslim Brotherhood and they are not going to come to any table to talk. This looks more and more like a war of extermination. In short, this is very likely going to become a Civil War, ala Syria with the Egyptian Military armed to the teeth with years of US arms sold to them by successive US administrations. Why does this administration hesitate to stop arms Sales To Egypt? Companies like Lockheed Martin who do a lot of business in Egypt.. they were a major campaign contributor to Obama... and many Senators and Congressman as well. This is what happens when you have what is essentially government by bribery.Internet Traffic Dives 40% On Google Outage
It's the Christians in Egypt who are increasingly being targeted now. Even journalists have been targeted.
Inaction is not a sound policy here. The US can play a positive role, but this administration keeps on creating the very crisis it seeks to avoid by its habitual inaction, indecision and its haphazard policy making (like not listening to his cabinet advisers). The sad part is when it does act, its always been in covert arms sales - aiding the very terrorist entities we claim to be fighting... like Libya and Syria.
Will Mubarak Return To power? Is that Obama's wish?
I don't know but all indications seem to point in that direction...
This I know, the Saudi's never wanted Mubarak removed in the first place and Obama and the Saudi King had 'frank' words about his ouster. Obama loves the Saudi's. He really does... they can do no wrong in his book. So Me thinks Mubarak may be heading right back into power.
Maybe the US is covertly assisting the building of a new Torture facility in Egypt to house all of those people who wanted democracy and fought so hard for it.
They should have known better. The Arab Spring sure 'outed' those who had those subversive notions of 'Freedom', Elections' , 'Democracy', and 'Human Rights'.
They'll probably die as enemies of the state if Mubarak comes to power again.
What caused it? They are not saying and probably never will tell us the whole truth. My Guess? I think there have been lots of classified hearings and discussions on the Hill about the NSA's relationship with all of those portholes. I think it quite possible that Congress may be putting a stop to some of the classified programs and this outage have been because of the removal of some kind of snoopware that encompassed all of Googles services (they all went down). Google and the NSA are too close and the data has been abused in the past. I do not think the relationship is a comfortable one being one primarily of necessity for Google to protect them from China.
Not long ago, two|FBI agents were stalking a couple of very attractive young women. The girls were not under any kind of authorized investigation.What the FBI men did was they used their official positions at the FBI to gain access to the women's GPS data from Google Maps and found out where they were at any given time. In this particular instance I don't think blackmail was involved but it has been known to happen if the women don't 'put out' for Federal Agents.Even US Attorney's have been caught doing these kinds of things!
Well the good news is that they were caught and given the option to either resign or face charges. They resigned. Last I heard one of them turned up dead when trying to get a job working for a Mexican Drug Cartel. That's the kind of stuff going on that the NSA, Justice Department or this administration don't want to to know about. The abuse is rampant and those procedures they claim to have in place to stop this? No one is following them... they don't have to, not as long as you have Rip Van Winkle sitting on Intelligence Oversight Committee and Diane Blindstien serving as Chairman.
Me? I don't know all the facts surrounding the relationship between the two but I only ask you do do what I do... Read your history. If it's big, makes a lot of money stores lots of data on Americans - the NSA wants in and they will do whatever they have to do get in.
That is just my guess. I think we are going to have (but not see unless you are cleared) a lot of changes over this NSA spying scandal and many of the changes are not going to be told to the public. Congress and the Senate are not happy over the abuses. Not with the NSA, not with the Oversight Committee's who have behaved in a way that is so bad it may even have been criminal.
Perhaps we may begin to see some real reform. I think it possible...
...on the day President Obama leaves office.
NSA = Nazi's Surveilling America
What To Do About Egypt
What is this administration going to do about the rapidly deteriorating situation in Egypt? The crisis is only going to get worse. This administration has played the whole thing very, very badly. Now this is not just a 'rant' against this administration but will look at some deep problems that encumber its ability to formulate coherent and effective policies.NSA Is Not Protecting Privacy, Its Breaking The Law
Right after the coup in Egypt, the US should have cut off all arms sales to he Military, recalled our personnel home and dispatched our warships to protect international shipping in the Suez Canal. I do not say this because I like Morsi,because I don't, not in the least. But he was the democratically elected President. These were elections that the US demanded as a cornerstone to a post Mubarak Egypt. Then a year later, when ousted in a coup, the US wobbles and fails to call the forceful removal of a recently democratically elected head of state by the military, a coup. Why not? What is the problem? Either we support democracy or we support military coups and right now, based on our actions, the Military has taken the signal that the US now supports the coup and has based their violent actions on US inaction. One has to really wonder who was really behind Morsi's ouster.
No one understands our policy, no one knows where we are going going with Egypt and when the President said he was going to suspend the military exercise with the Egyptian military, he didn't consult with his own Secretary of State. Kerry had to learn about it on the News! How can you run a foreign policy like that? Kerry is extremely frustrated with the President and rightfully so. There were some very good reasons why some wanted those exercises to go forward but how can you tell a President who gets his advice from key advisers who have date-raped a 14 year old daughter of another White House Employee (yes, that is who Obama sought advice from) and whose expertise is far outside of foreign policy? The President just will not listen and if someone has an opinion he knows he does not want to hear, he just ignores them or cuts them out of the loop. John Kerry may soon bolt if this is going to be Obama's pattern of mis-governance. The President seems to have acquired the fatal disease that many leaders have who ascended to power based on the cult of personality, they develop delusions of godhood. I say this only half in jest because his bizzare behavior and policies has a lot of people on Capitol Hill talking... 'is this guy all there'? This is the refrain spoken when the doors are closed by some Congressman and their staffers in both parties. This administration just will not take the initiative about anything except pushing gay rights down other nations throats, like in Russia.
Now we have a bloodbath in Egypt largely of our own making. First off, we armed Mubarak and protected his crimes for far too long and thus the Egyptians have only known US sponsored dictatorship. If they hate America, the US government has fully earned it. The expectations that came from Egypt's violent transition to democracy were too high because the problems inside the nation and the damage done by decades of dictatorial misrule are too deep to sweep away in just one year, or two or even five. The power centers of government are not set up for democratic/legal governance. Today, its set up for more Jungle-esque modes of governance; bribery, riots, murder, looting, assassination and one of Egypt's favorites, torture.
It takes time for democracy to filter into a society thus constructed. What you don't want to do is put any kind of stamp of legitimacy on a military coup or any kind of dictatorship,...that is, if you really want a democratic Egypt. I am not sure that this is what the President is really looking for. I don't really think he has a plan other than to hope this problem goes away so that he can re-focus on his Hollywood/Gay agenda, which Egypt and Syria are serious distractions from. I do not say this in jest. I just don't believe this President wants to be bothered with Foreign Policy issues unless LBGT issues are in the forefront.
This I think is the crux of the matter and one that most are just not going to see. This President has a 'past' that can be and is being used against him to blackmail (NPI) him. I strongly suspect that the Hollywood/Gay/Porn Industry/Pedophile/Human Trafficking Networks (they all work together, many of those porn stars in those porn video clips have been trafficked and are in slavery) who gave him so much money have him by his proverbial genitals and are not going to let go. The problem goes right down to domestic issues as well. His wife has been forced to support much of the Presidents 'gayness'. She has little choice. Both are in a vice. The two still do not sleep under the same roof, even when they are forced to travel together. She has her own hotel, separate from her Husband. This is why I refrain from saying anything negative about the First lady. Politics aside, she more a prisoner than a First Lady. They had her doped up once before when they needed to 'control' her. She knows they can do it again... or worse if she does not play the role of the Gay supporting happy First lady.
But back to Egypt - What is the US gong to do about the Suez canal? So far things there are not as bad as they could be, but it could become a point of leverage against the world should the two factions (the Muslim Brotherhood or the Military) start upping the ante as I think is almost inevitable. But what happens in Egypt will have far reaching ramifications thought the region. It will effect Eastern Libya, the conflict in Sudan, the conflict in Ethiopia, and of course the Gaza Strip. The simple fact is that what we are witnessing, barring a miracle, is the opening salvos in a civil war that is being instigated by the corrupt and power-mad Egyptian military that put Egypt in the mess it's in today as well as a violent, educationally challenged, incompetent and backwards looking Muslim Brotherhood who wants to return Egypt to the 11th Century.
The best thing the west can do is to do its best to isolate the military internationally, NOT impose sanctions except on military or military related equipment and compel the UK as well as others to delay or cancel its current military orders with Egypt (this is a story that has completely disappeared from News aggregators. Last I read it was about 43 million pounds of UK Helicopters that they were trying to sell to the Egyptian military to repress the Egyptian People. More here as well as here.
This is a mess of our own making and we have no solution and the administration does not seem to be even concerned about finding one.
And Fienstien and most of the oversight Committee has done nothing effective to put a stop to it. And this President is the main part of the problem. He has stifled and inhibited any kind of effective oversight for years. How can we believe him now when he talks about crating a new privacy post in the wake of this scandal when the ones he has now are vacant? Will he crate a post and not fill it as has already done with posts the laws already requires... REQUIRES?To my brethren in Christ... BE ENCOURAGED!!!
His promises are little more than a political placebo, a pacifier to mask his own pitiful inaction.
My son, despise not the chastening of Jehovah; Neither be weary of his reproof:
For whom Jehovah loveth he reproveth; Even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.
I pray God finds all who read this little spiritual commentary in good health, good spirits and occupying joyfully in these most difficult times. I am talking about this rather unpleasant reality today because we as Christians need to make sure that we are growing and obeying our Lord in these times. Once you are admitted into the Kingdom of God, you have a whole new standard of behavior to live by and a much more important degree of accountability. It is because God loves his children that we are often chastised by him. Nobody likes it, from experience let me say this to each of you - if God is chastising you, find out what you need to do and do it quick, don't wait around for God to have to get your full and undivided attention. Brothers, don't get into the position where the Lord has to call you home in order to save your soul. Are you sick? I have to ask you this - did you forsake God or cease to heed his voice? Have you mocked his servants or reviled his prophets? Has your neck become stiff and your heart hard? Brothers, if God is chastising you over these things, be thankful; be JOYFUL in that it is because God cares for you and loves you that he is taking you out to the divine 'woodshed'. He does not do those things because he hates you, if he hated you, he would let you go right on your merry rebellious way. But in love he is rebuking you.
Why am I talking about this now? Because in the days ahead I see many saints going home before their time because they did not listen to God, nor pay heed to the urgings of the Spirit. This is when you get into serious hot water with God. He may let you stray for a while, but when his correcting hand moves in, that is when he has identified a serious problem that must be dealt with.
...and ye have forgotten the exhortation which reasoneth with you as with sons, My son, regard not lightly the chastening of the Lord, Nor faint when thou art reproved of him; For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, And scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. It is for chastening that ye endure; God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is there whom his father chasteneth not? But if ye are without chastening, whereof all have been made partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. Furthermore, we had the fathers of our flesh to chasten us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed good to them; but he for our profit, that we may be partakers of his holiness. All chastening seemeth for the present to be not joyous but grievous; yet afterward it yieldeth peaceable fruit unto them that have been exercised thereby, even the fruit of righteousness.
- Hebrews 12:5-11
The point is a very simple one and was uttered by the Prophet Samuel when rebuking King Saul in the Old Testament.
And Samuel said, Hath Jehovah as great delight in burnt-offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of Jehovah? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.
For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as idolatry and teraphim. Because thou hast rejected the word of Jehovah, he hath also rejected thee from being king.
- 1 Samuel 15:22-23
Brothers when we see someone in the throes of chastisement, let us not get arrogant nor become calloused towards them. There are few things more odious to God than spiritual pride and religious superiority. Be gracious to your brethren who are struggling or suffering.
In these things a double dose of real humility is in order, remember the Apostle told us that God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble. Whenever you are being chastised or know someone who is, your humility both towards God and your brother will be much appreciated by both God and your brother. Do you want God's grace during your trial?
Learn and practice humility in ALL things.

Unprecedented Wave Of Destruction Of Churches In Egypt
The destruction is truly monumental. I have used the CBN link in because they have a list on the names of the Churches that have been destroyed or defaced.
WorldWatch Monitor is using Storify to keep us updated as to events there, they also have a more complete list of those Churches burned, destroyed or attacked. This is a pretty good resource so if you are at all interested in what is going on there, this may be the place to start.

Indonesian Special Forces raid Christian Church
Indonesian special forces in the province of Papua have left one Christian congregation "bewildered" after they decided to raid a Catholic parish, breaking down one of the doors. The raid was ostensibly part of a search for weapons, though none were found in the church. Christian villagers in Papua have in the past been caught up in the wider conflict between Indonesian settlers and native separatists looking to annex the island from Indonesian control. Christians fear discrimination at the hands of Indonesian soldiers, who are pre-dominantly Muslim. - Persecution.org

Now the quarter horse association no longer can determine its rules, but a Judge decides it for them.
The more mankind tries to 'fix nature' the more he screws it up. What may seem like a great idea today, turns out to be not such a great idea tomorrow. Everywhere Nature is rebelling against mankind's activity. From strange weather to sinkholes, new genetically engineered diseases to poisoned water. Mankind just seems to really hate the world we live in and is working pretty hard to make it worse.
Cloned Horses - is there any kind of threat here? Probably not on the surface, but this I know, the work in genetic sciences has gone far beyond anything you are going to read on the internet. Let me give you an aside. There was once a spate of serious attacks by a certain species of dog on humans here in the US. The dogs, it turns out were genetically modified in another nation and transported to the US as a kind of 'experiment'. This happened about 10 years ago. My point? You have no idea how far this has already gone and the sad part is, I think our intelligence community only has a 'pretty good idea', being hampered by members of Congress, this administration and the last one from find out too much about it. Why? Some are in the pay of foreign powers, lobbyists or others who hope to make a buck from this new industry. Espionage and treason have now been juxtaposed with the word 'lobbying'.
Can we be certain that someone has not secretly inserted a genetic code that will have these horses (and their offspring) un-able to breed in 5 generations or some other major problem that could seriously threaten our Horses or livestock (which is also being cloned) down the road? I know many of my readers immediately assume that this is all regulated and things are being inspected and tested. That is an assumption that you should never make. I know that with GMO's this was not being done to any significant degree. Recently some things were discovered about GMO's and one major company that makes them that demonstrates that these fears are real and that there are those who have embarked on a deliberate policy to destroy, contaminate and otherwise undermine the US food supply using GMO's. Does the US want to see its Horse population start dying out in about 30 years mysteriously while key scientists, lobbyists and government bureaucrats works desparately to make sure that no one finds out why (yes, you read that correctly)? Then let these things go forward without some real oversight and testing and common sense questions that those in government seem to be paid not to ask..
I say these things knowing that many nations who once never possessed these capabilities are now actively seeking them and or are developing them. Ask yourself; if you were the King of Saudi Arabia and found people dying of a genetically modified disease in your kingdom, would you not seek the same kinds of weapons to aim at your enemies? Exactly, the genie is out of the bottle and Pandora's box has been opened.
My point is that there are many threats with Cloning and these new genetic capabilities that are not being discussed either in government nor in the blogosphere that are real and can be utterly devastating as the GMO threat will one day, about 30 years from now, turn out to be with no remedy and destroying a major part of the US economy permanently.
Great Expectations: Iran's New President
In a region that recently has produced virtually nothing but bad news, Hassan Rouhani’s 4 August swearing in as Iran’s president offers a rare and welcome glimmer of hope. There are still far more questions than answers: about the extent of his authority; his views on his country’s nuclear program, with which he long has been associated; and the West’s ability to display requisite flexibility and patience. But, although both sides can be expected to show caution, now is the time to put more ambitious proposals on the table, complement the multilateral talks with a bilateral U.S.-Iranian channel and expand the dialogue to encompass regional security issues. - ICG

Violence In Egypt As Cops Clear Out Pro-Morsi Camps
Meanwhile Churches are being attacked as the protest camps are dispersed.
Egyptian Christians ask for our continued Prayers.
Oh Lord, we pray that you will protect your sheep in the midst of all of the political and social upheaval taking place in Egypt. We pray that your people maintain the ways of peace and do not retaliate for wrongs committed against them. We pray that you will send protecting angels and ministering spirits to look out for those whom you call yours in these difficult times. We also pray that as food prices and the prices of necessities rise, your people will be blessed and comforted as they share, assist others and are obedient to you in these times. We pray that you will raise up voices in Egypt that will proclaim a message that will bring peace to this troubled land and that your people will be able to play a role in molding an Egypt that is free of violent strife, poverty and corruption.
In Jesus name,
Why Are Millions Of Fish Suddenly Dying All Over Earth?
These mass deaths have been happening for many years and there is no singular cause in the natural realm. I talked about some of the causes in one of my recent reports on Earth Changes (see left Column Earth Trends Report). Rather than give a secular type synopsis of the reasons why (I have done this many times already) I will only say that these things have been foretold to us by our Lord Jesus Christ and the Spirit of God in the scriptures. They are judgments on our Earth for mankinds continued wickedness. His murders, thefts, war lust, sexual perversions, hate, thefts, lies and shedding of innocent blood. This is only going to increase as time passes. The Earth and the Sea are not going to be immune to the troubles that are coming. The troubles have already begun.Germany-US Negotiate 'No Spy' Pact
And the first sounded, and there followed hail and fire, mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of the earth was burnt up, and the third part of the trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.No Brethren, we have not arrived at this point in time yet, but what we are seeing is just a foretaste of what is to come. It is as I have said for years now, mankind's probation on earth is slowly drawing to and end.
And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
and there died the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, even they that had life; and the third part of the ships was destroyed.
Folks Fukushima - there is a backstory to this and it is very disturbing. Sadly, going into detail could prove hazardous to this watchman's health. I know many of you get upset with me because I go off on this current administration, but the truth is there is a lot going on that I simply cannot discuss safely that are so abominable... Fukushima as well is going to have a big effect on the earth Oceans, despite what the Government forces Oceanographic Institutes tell you or forced not tell you.
There are now calls for more testing of seafood. Well, here is the problem. When tests are conducted and they show things that are likely to cause concern, they hide the findings (classify them). This was the pattern over and over again at the beginning of the crisis. One West Coast university who was doing some great work had their financing threatened if they continued with it. They for the most part ceased. There are a host of reports done by the Navy and Institutes that get significant government grants and almost all of them are hidden away or sanitized of any useful information because of lobbying. Lobbying by the Nuclear Power Industry and lobbying by the Fishery industry. If you (and 10 million others) get colon cancer 10 years from now for eating Radioactive Tuna, who are you gong to sue since no evidence is in the public domain outlining the danger levels? Exactly... they know how this game is played and this administration is more than happy to play it..
Just put your 'coin of the realm' in the slot and this administration will hide anything you want hidden. Hey, this could be a real profit maker for Obamacare and the Medical profession... all those cancer patients... big bucks!!!
Expect the radiation at Fukushima to have a deep and long lasting effect on Sea life for the rest of our lifetimes, the lifetimes of your children and their children's children. Now what you are going to hear a massive amount of government sponsored propaganda about how radiation is not a threat, its good for you, no need to worry, all is well (because of lobbying by the Nuclear Power industry), while deformed fish wash up on shore and more and more seafood becomes inedible and the government raises radiation 'safe' limits for human consumption to unsafe levels (because of the lobbying of the fishery industry).
So I would only say this to you all. God's patience with sinful man is not eternal. His love for sinful man does know boundaries. Man must learn to turn to his creator and love him first and then turn and love his brother. Love life, love truth, love peace and most of all love God. Don't let the devils ministers deceive you about loving sin as being the way to salvation. That is the way to judgment and damnation. Christ came to save us from our sins, not save us to go on sinning. If you wish to escape God's punishment on sinful man, you have to get in the ark of Salvation, which is in Christ Jesus. He is giving mankind a chance. A chance to repent and change course.
Hear me on this dear readers. There is going to come a time when God's Watchmen, Prophets and even his Prayer Warriors are going to be told, directed and ordered by God to cease praying for this nation and the recalcitrant sinners in it. That day is not here yet, but it will come. I know it is going to be a hard day for some of us for we will see many folks in great need and we will be told to redirect our prayer efforts to others whom God deems worthy of the Great gift of salvation.
America and Americans... you can go too far. (Jer 7:6; 11:14; 14:11)
This is merely a puppet show. The Germans and the Americans have been working hand in hand on this NSA spying. So what is this really all about? To give the public a warm fuzzy feeling that it's going to stop when it will probably increase in secret protocols in any agreement reached. What else is driving it? The big trade deal that is now stuck because of the NSA scandal. That is the real target and each side wants the deal but have to come up with a mutually agreed upon 'story' for public consumption so that a big trade deal can go through. The scandal is hindering the pact, so both of the spying nations (Germany and the US) are going to put on a 'play'. The play will star Barak Obama and Angela Merkel and be directed by Big Oil and other major industries. One of the big issues in this deal is that Fracking will be easier (and probably more environmentally dangerous) because the deal lifts current EU regulations. Like all of these trade deals, the whole idea is to get around pesky laws and regulations that protect the people, labor and environment and get in the way of corporate profits. This new deal he has been negotiating gives his corporate donors new political powers.
DW has a piece here that says any 'deal' would probably expand, not end the spying.
I love how the DW piece calls all of these Internet portholes the 'Steal Industry' because that is what they do and are. Thieves with cool sounding names and cute little icons that let you share everything about you with your friends....

The spirit of Sodom will destroy any society that embraces it and America is embracing this spirit.
Uzbekistan is attempting to deprive the registered Baptist Union of land it owns and uses to run summer camps for children and families, Forum 18 News Service has learned. The state is claiming – without any apparent legal foundation – that the land was "illegally" bought in 2000. Baptists have complained to the Prosecutor-General that "the future of Uzbekistan cannot be built on the plundering of religious organisations". Separately in Samarkand Region, an unrelated children's camp organised by local Protestants was raided. The raid on a camp of 31 adults and children involved 30 ordinary police, 20 riot police, and 30 officials from the regional tax authorities, Fire Brigade, Sanitary-Epidemiological Department, and the regional administration. Police "began brandishing their rubber batons, and collected statements from everyone – even from small children separated from their parents". After over six hours of questioning and raids on the alleged organisers' homes, it is expected that charges will be brought against six Protestants. Police have refused to discuss the raid with Forum 18. - Forum 18China: Xinjiang House Church Raided

So many reservations that they really wanted to get out of the USSA and sell their interests here to one of America's leading 'in bed with NSA' telecom providers and leave Americans to their new Secret Police. The Germans have been down that road before and for most, it's not one they ever want to go down again.Anti-Catholic Facebook Pages Worry Latino's
The scope of the spying is making a lot of people around the world very, very angry. Now I don't think these new servers (referred to in the article) they are setting up are going to protect you from NSA spying in the least, but the move is a great PR program to show that they 'care'. This is mostly a fig leaf solution which is what I think the encryption system they propose really is today as is almost all internet encryption. If the NSA doesn't have a back door, you cannot legally distribute it.
If these firms really want security, they need to develop their own encryption system and software to use it and distribute that to its customers and change those systems every so often... about the time it would take for a major internet spying agency to get the money and build the systems to break the old systems. Then just when they did, change the encryption system again. Americans cannot legally do this. Europeans can and I hear tell that some in South America already have. We Americans have been trapped and corralled by our own invasive government.
Meanwhile our President gave a speech where he laid out what turns out to be non-reforms to the spy program. To me what is so tragic is that this President's word simply cannot be trusted. He says he's comfortable with spying, but I am not, nor are most Americans. But a White Paper here shows that Obama's domestic spying program may be outside of the law. The 'Law' he steadfastly maintains he is following and that no one is breaking. Remember this is a program that Obama claimed did not exist! This President has used false statements and false promises too often in the past to be trusted purely based on his public statements and speeches meant for public consumption. The President is clearly the primary part of the problem and has no intention of being part of a reasonable solution that truly respects Americans from the 'legal' and illegal intrusions of the NSA or just as importantly the spying done by his major corporate donors.
Too many folks who served under him know what this man is really all about. I can tell of two Christians who left his service while working intimately with him - they were disgusted. There is good in Obama, his problem is that he see's that it is easier and more profitable to do wrong and so he does. No one calls him out on it, not Black leaders, not liberals, not his own party, not the gays. They just sit there and let him behave like a Black Richard Nixon. They all seem to be thinking "He's black and good looking... hey, he even has a black wife! Therefore, he can't do evil."
I know that these NSA programs are going to be abused because I know who some of the folks who have been pushing them from the very beginning. They really hate Black Folks and I do mean hate. I know my history I know how domestic spying programs were used against Black folks back in the 50's and 60's. The program has been euphemistically called 'COINTELPRO' and was targeted against many groups in America that racist elements in the government wanted eliminated....
The FBI has used covert operations against domestic political groups since its inception; however, covert operations under the official COINTELPRO label took place between 1956 and 1971. COINTELPRO tactics have been alleged to include discrediting targets through psychological warfare; smearing individuals and groups using forged documents and by planting false reports in the media; harassment; wrongful imprisonment; and illegal violence, including assassination. The FBI's stated motivation was "protecting national security, preventing violence, and maintaining the existing social and political order."A series of interesting articles can be found here as well the are all pretty good and worth your perusal.
FBI records show that 85% of COINTELPRO resources targeted groups and individuals that the FBI deemed "subversive", including communist and socialist organizations; organizations and individuals associated with the civil rights movement, including Martin Luther King, Jr. and others associated with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, and the Congress of Racial Equality and other civil rights organizations; black nationalist groups; the American Indian Movement; a broad range of organizations labeled "New Left", including Students for a Democratic Society and the Weathermen; almost all groups protesting the Vietnam War, as well as individual student demonstrators with no group affiliation; the National Lawyers Guild; organizations and individuals associated with the women's rights movement; nationalist groups such as those seeking independence for Puerto Rico, United Ireland, and Cuban exile movements including Orlando Bosch's Cuban Power and the Cuban Nationalist Movement; and additional notable Americans —even Albert Einstein, who was a socialist and a member of several civil rights groups, came under FBI surveillance during the years just before COINTELPRO's official inauguration. - Wikipedia
My point here is to acquaint you with a very dark chapter in US history and where domestic spying leads. It always leads to this. In Nazi Germany, Stalinist Russia, Maoist China, the same basic pattern. You give the state that much power and good people wind up dead or in a labor camp and the rats. vultures and jackals run the show. The good news in America is that we saw where we were heading back in the '70's and self corrected (The Church Committee) more here. The problem is that the power behind the throne is working very hard to bring this all back again to America. Let us be realistic about what is happening. Many government agencies, including the FBI and the DOD (of which the NSA is part) view American protests as terrorism. Once that word gets used, the NSA/FBI/CIA/DHS/ATF, etc could conceivably get involved to do what Hoover did to the Civil Rights leaders back in the day. Once again, it is important and imperative to understand just how Obama or any future administration defines terrorism. Those definitions as recent hearings have shown are very, very different than the dictionary meaning of those terms.
If you want to know who really was the trigger behind MLK's death, you have your answer in COINTELPRO. I have long had deep suspicions about the deaths of so many antiwar activists back in those days as well even Rock stars who were vocal about the war who wound up dead from 'drug overdoses' - Hendrix/ Joplin/ Morrison/RFK/ MLK/ John Lennon/ Malcolm X, etc...) If you were a famous rock star, politician or activist and could sway young people to avoid the draft (we had the draft in those days) and you spoke up against the war, your chances of dying of a 'drug overdose' or being shot by a 'lone nut' assassin rose significantly.
My point is also to point out that you never give anyone that kind of power because as surely as decay follows death, they will abuse it. We self corrected once, we need to do it again or else more activists, journalists, protesters, Black folks, Middle Class White Folks, Patriots and Nature lovers will die in single car accidents, drug overdoses, or hang themselves with their hands tied behind their backs from secret government programs overseen and directed by the President and hidden from Congress.
Last week I mentioned that I don't pay too much attention to the laws so much but rather THE CAPABILITIES. I know that there are ways the intelligence community operates outside of the law when they want to and Congress is none the wiser. So don't let this or any President tell you about 'Laws'. Presidents will (and do) break any law at anytime as long as it will not cost them significantly politically or lead to impeachment. This is why I think this President has been by far the hardest on Whistleblowers. It think he's hiding some serious criminality behind the wall of secrecy. The sky's the limit in the Executive Branch because Congress could really care less what any President does... except when the CSPAN cameras are rolling then they make their 'deep concern' face until the camera's are off.
So one day, as I have told you in the past, these programs will be used (not might, not could but WILL be used) on Americans to start picking up, smearing or even assassinating those whom the State wants to deal with. Blacks, Native Americans, Mexicans, Iranians, Christians, Catholics, Pro-Abortion Groups, Anti-Nuclear power groups anti-GMO groups/natural food advocates... did I mention Christians? If I didn't, let me mention Christians as well, who are already under significant state-sponsored pressure in many states in our perverted world and severe pressure in a few others. In these days of Government by bribery, you pay a President enough money and they can do pretty much whatever they want. They did it before and are now trying to do it all over again.
I don't want us to be paranoid about this spying, but I also do not want us to be complacent either. When there is no effective oversight, there will be abuses, guaranteed.
Brothers, I fully understand and appreciate the threat of terrorism. I was looking at this issue long before just about anyone who now claims to be an 'expert' back in my Intelligence analyst cubical while serving in the Military. But I think our actions have magnified a small problem into a Global anti-American campaign when before it was just a few loosely knit groups who were easily manageable. I do not think for a moment that terrorism is something we can ignore. Yet I also think our actions are the greatest boon the terrorists have had. America's violent, ill conceived and unilateral actions are truly excellent recruitment tools that these groups exploit with unimaginable success. We are our own worst enemy on this front. But stoking up the hate has made many US defense Contractors hundreds of billions of dollars in war and spying contracts and keeping the fear here in the US stoked up keeps them in those Defense dollars.
This is why we need to keep an eye on the contracts, who is getting rich and who is getting paid off to keep the programs in tact. THIS IS MOSTLY ABOUT MONEY, Anti-terrrorism and the 'security of the nation' are just the excuse to maintain these massive war budgets and contracts. I know that most people do not (want to) understand the cynical and wicked ways of Washington, but it's there for anyone with an open mind and a little time to do some reading. But some of the darker parts of our government and elite see a future where the old COINTELPRO actions can be re-instituted here in America and this administration appears to be working for the guys who want to bring this about. He's been taking their money, doing their bidding and if you want to know why there is such a disconnect between what he said he was going to do back in 2008 and what he is doing now, you now have your answer.
It's the money.

Pakistani Christians Hold Police Accountable
Hundreds of Pakistani Christians braved scorching summer heat for three days and two nights in agricultural fields to ensure that police would register the alleged murder of a Punjabi agricultural smallholder in front of his two children.China-Japan: Chinese Ships Enter Disupted Waters
45-year-old Ishaq Masih, a resident of a village in the Okara district, near Lahore, was shot dead on July 27, his children say, by a man named Muhammad Luqman (alias Ranjha) who, accompanied by others, had illegally occupied Masih’s land.
Fearing the police would not follow “due process” as a minority Christian was involved, local Christians rushed to the scene. They then refused to bury the body for three days (contrary to Pakistani practice of burial the next day) until police had agreed to register the murder, arrest two of the suspects and conduct an autopsy.
Samsung Vs. Apple: Trade Decisions By Bribery
I have long watched the decisions between Apple and Samsung with some disappointment. This administration, utterly beholden to the Tech industry and Hollywood has thrown out good policy for a campaign donation. Last week Obama overruled our legal system and his own trade rep and sided with Apple (a major contributor) in long running patent disputes.
Many people do not see the import of this kind of decision but I do. While our President is busy out touting a 'pivot east' to contain China, he has been even busier alienating our allies like the steadfast South Koreans. This President has also done enormous damage to our Japanese ties by his inaction in the China sea. The Japanese have consistently asked for help and support and Obama barely has time for the Japanese Ambassador.
The Japanese I think are wise to shore up their military and yes, seek Nuclear Weapons (a subject I have covered here with the utmost care) because US assurances in the region are not worth much with what appears to this author to look more and more like a 'China First' administration. What our foreign policy is doing is forcing our once solid allies into China's sphere of influence. Our Asian pivot looks more like a massive deception to assuage his critics while this administration continues a covert policy to isolate America in the region. This recent decision has 'China owns me' all over it. His decision to side with Apple is HIGHLY unusual and pretty much unprecedented.
I hope I am wrong, but I frankly do not think I am far off on this at all.
Please pray for our President. Pray that if he has been captured by dark forces, their snares and nets are removed. I say again, his job is a tough job and he really does need our prayers even and especially when he makes poor decisions.
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

The Rise Of The Russian Bear
The Russian Bear is stronger and more powerful than it has ever been before. Sadly, most Americans don't understand this.

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.Why is it today that we have Christian (so called) leaders are telling you that God is a liar, the Bible is not to be trusted and to obey it is the new 'sin'? Why would some say they want to go to hell rather than serve God? Is this not what the devil says? In his rebellion against God, when he took one third of the Holy host with him was this not his sin? Yes, he wanted to be God and set up his own kingdom CONTRARY to God. When you hear some of these Pastors speak today, know that you are only hearing the devil speak. His ministers do his work which is to lead you into sin; into rebellion against God, not away from evil They work to lead you away from God, not towards him. This has always been the devils M.O. and we should not be shocked when we hear satan speak so clearly out of the mouth of so many 'christian' ministers today. The devil knows many tricks and 'bait and switch' is one of his most tried and true. It is always the same basic methodology he has used since from he fall of man, 'Yeah, hath God said?' First he plants doubt, and then he springs his trap calling God a liar. Once he gets you to buy that, he's got you.

Iranian Christians have requested our prayers following the conviction and sentencing of another believer. Mostafa is a believer from a Muslim background, whom we have mentioned in some recent prayer requests, most recently on 25th July.
Recall that he was arrested on 27th December 2012 in Tehran. He was offered release on bail. However the title deeds offered were rejected because they were for property in Rasht, where he lives, rather than Tehran where he was arrested. Consequently, he remained in detention. On 9th June he appeared in court on charges of “attending an illegal gathering and participating in a house church.”
We regret to report that on 31st July his lawyer was handed an eight-page document stating that Mostafa had been convicted and sentenced to ten years’ imprisonment. The document detailed the charges and the evidence for each charge. - Middle East Concern

You know what I see as the real bad thing in all of this? Bond holders and investment groups always want someone else to pay for their risk. Investing in these Mortgage bonds is risk. What these investors are now doing is their best to make sure that the courts remove this particular risk from their portfolio. The mortgages are not worth what banks and bondholders paid for them, they are not worth much of anything. The empty houses are bad news for the city. The banks themselves are now part of the problem as to why mortgage values plummet in these area's. Who wants to live on a street with vacant houses?
Maybe if the banks did what all homeowners should do like take care of their homes, there would not be such a problem. But what they are asking for is the right to be lousy and irresponsible homeowners and mess up America's cities in the process. If I were mayor, I would seize a couple homes and make the banks come to the table to talk... With that kind of leverage, they will talk and have a very different tone than their usual arrogance. I think an amicable solution could be found. The problem is the arrogance of the banks... arrogant because they know that they own Washington and can do whatever they please.
They are all falling one after another. The NSA nor Obama like any kind of privacy. It runs counter to the fascist model both are bringing to America.

Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
It may answer some questions for you.
Many readers ask me if I think our President is the antichrist. The answer to that is firmly no. I think the man of sin will come out of the Middle East. But I do think our current President is a very strong 'type' of Antichrist. His whole administration can be marked by what I call the the three satanic traits. Steal Kill and Destroy. He is what you would expect of an Anticrhist. He is highly, HIGHLY charismatic, good looking and has the traits that attract those who ordinarily would loath his policies to him (like race/political affiliation, etc). He has rarely spoken a word of truth and almost all of his promises and 'solemn pledges' have turned out to be lies (revealing his spiritual fatherhood). You could not come up with a better 'antichrist' if you made him in a test tube. This is not a swipe at him personally, though it may sound like it. I think Bush as well was a type of Antichrist. Though he did not posses our current President's charisma, but he did get the 'steal, kill and destroy' part down to a science.
My point here is twofold. First off you are not going to recognize the man of sin when he comes on the scene unless you have some real discernment. He is going to dazzle the planet with signs, miracles and charisma. Think about the Obama phenomenon in 2007-08 and magnify it 100 fold. Most folks, including non-discerning Christians are going to get swept up in the emotion of the moment like many did with this President. It's only now slowly are some beginning to wake up to what they really elected... the last President on Steroids with a different color skin. Many christians will wake up from their worship of the antichrist with a mark on their right hand or forehead and realize the horrible irredeemable mistake they have made.
This is not personal, this is about the spirit of the nation and its corrupt and increasingly satanic political system and the mammon driven politics that runs DC. It's just like the bible describes the last days Babylonian system. Commerce comes first (Revelation 17&18).

Google Chome Flaw Gives Hackers Your Passwords
Everyone loves Google Chrome.
I am ambivalent about this browser, I am very reticent to use a browser that is made by a company in bed with the NSA and whose primary revenue stream is spying on me to throw ads at me later. I feel the same way about Android and the deceitful way Google gets you to agree to their terms. insiders tell me that the phrase insiders use (who know what Chrome is doing and its victims...I mean users don't say, "No Chrome at Home". In other words, they never use it at home. Work or a cafe, yes... home no. Besides the NSA and criminals (is there a difference?) , who else would want your passwords? Just asking...
Google does not tell you about those terms until after you buy an Android Tablet. This really should not be legal. If there is a major user agreement, then that should be made clear, along with those terms before you buy the tablet or phone. Google just is not a very honest company in my book. Insiders I know praise them to high heaven. I am wholly unconvinced of Google's integrity and respect of its users or even the ultimate ownership of this massive conglomerate.
The world of technology is rapidly changing because of classified directives that companies are now forced to implement by virtue of a state that is obsessed and has become unbalanced with a monotonous, compulsive focus on 'security' to the degree that it now views its own citizens as the enemy and a primary threat. Now the TSA is putting VIPR (a take on the name of a serpent) to go to all the Transportation hubs across the nation. More here. You already have major problems with TSA agents stealing things out of people's luggage at airports. Who knows what evil these minimum wage federal officials will engage in when they can stop you on the road and shake you down without any reason or cause? Hey, go and read the report by the GAO on misconduct if you think I am off. You used to have some pretty big heavy hitters in government who had organized crime rackets that used these agents... I do not jest. One Congresswoman who was investigating this suddenly had a family member come turn up dead. You even had Pedophiles hired by the TSA. Have these problems been corrected? Nope. Are they going to be? Not under this President's watch. His actions seem to wish to encourage as many abuses as possible, as though he deliberately wants to build a wedge between the people and their government, something the Chinese have been trying to do for years to America (internal destabilization). He has let the intelligence and security communities run wild targeting Americans. The Chinese and other foreign powers must be very, very happy with this Presidents performance in office.
If you use the internet you are in more danger than you realize. Despite all of the lies you are hearing, encryption is not sacred and your passwords almost certainly reside in an intelligence database, ready to be signed away to the highest bidder by this or a future occupant of the White House. Every encryption system on the net is breakable, if it was not, you would not be able to use it - the law specifically prevents it. Criminals have long had their hands in that pie, deeply embedded in our intelligence communities.
So when we talk about men like Snowden, he is only revealing the skimmings of the spying and criminality going on in the Intelligence community. How can this continue? There is no oversight, or those conducting the oversight are either being blackmailed, bribed or are part of the criminal enterprise and getting rich in the process. How do you think all of these Senators get so much money?
How much is Feinstein worth? How about Jay Rockefeller. Both are on the Intelligence committee.
Where do you think this money is coming from... a magic genie? Alakazaam! Here's 10 million dollars.
Does anyone care about what is going on out there in the world of technology and intelligence? Look at Verizon, they have their own 'government' spy facility
It makes you wonder if these big Telecom companies are not secretly part of the government doesn't it? They always seem to get favorable regulatory rulings, are allowed to swallow up humongous portions of the RF spectrum to force out competition and get massive loans from Federally Bailed Out Wall Street banks. When you only have about few major telecoms that control 70% of the market, you don't need to strong arm all the players to spy, just a few. Some of these are actually Tier 1 Internet providers, that means they have to have very, very special connections with Uncle Sam because many other providers MUST go to them to get access to the internet. If you want to spy on the whole internet, you get a Tier 1 provider to help you... provided they are not secretly part of the government that is!
Teir 1 providers get a massive revenue stream by virtue of their government connections. They can charge what they want to businesses and peon's who are not 'anointed' by the NSA to behave like a defacto monopoly
Meanwhile the NYT is telling us that all mails in or out of the US get scanned. You can only do that if you have access to the Teir 1 companies data... or own them. Read this one, you get a better idea of the kinds of falsehoods we have been told by our leaders. Let me tell you something, there is massive, massive amount of money in all of this spying; huge classified contracts to work on huge classified programs that Congress is not even aware of. Just like in Nazi Germany, domestic spying became a key pillar of the state and big business.
Government Private Partnerships = Fascism (The Nazi Form of Government)
It doesn't matter if you buy this analysis now, you will one day soon when you can no longer do anything about it. The devil is just closing his fist on America because he plans on squeezing the life out of us. The rising spy/police state is not a joke nor theory. Just read your headlines any thinking person can see this one. Those who got my last economic update understand what I am talking about.
Finally my Brethren in Christ, don't let pastors try and continually tell you that you must always do what the government says and that to protest these evils is not godly. Many of these pastors are very comfortable sitting in the devils lap, taking his very favorable tax breaks, being invited to the White House to push sin on the Churches, making serious money and living better than Kings and President's do. These are the kinds of men for the most part, who would have put a Swastika in the Church during Hitlers time and turned in any Jew to the death camps because "Caesar told me to". They love Caesar. They love their comfortable palaces and to be known as 'father this' or 'Pastor that'. When religion and money get mixed in together sound doctrine always goes by the wayside and vile men rise to power inside the Church because there is money to be made. I think this is one of the problems with the Catholic Church today. There was a lot of money and for years, mafiosi, Intelligence agencies and others found ways to get into the Vatican to get rich.
The problem in Protestantism is just as bad, if not worse. Worse because it is not centralized and here in America, the protestant Churches, many of them have become defacto arms of the state and are used to implement state policy, good or evil. This is why you do not hear any hue and cry about the things happening in America by these Churches; many are merely 'fronts'. They are there for a political, not a spiritual purpose. It is pastors like these who will turn in their own parishioners when things get hot... and things WILL get hot. They won't speak about approaching evil because they are comfortable with it and use their pulpits to help usher it in. Brother, if your pastor or Church is in lockstep with the devil, get out of step with your pastor! Get on and stay on the narrow path that leads to life; get on the Jesus Road, not the Highway to Hell so many pastors are driving their parishioners down. Don't defile yourself by doing or supporting evil simply because your pastor says you should.
Finally, brothers, we must respect our leaders. But real respect means that when they are wrong you tell them. What if your wife or husband robbed a liquor store - would you not point out that it's wrong? If you hated them, you probably would tell them to go and rob again and maybe take a gun and kill someone in the process, hoping they get a death sentence. But this is the kind of 'honor' our leaders too many pastors are preaching today. But if you really cared form them and respected them, you would tell them in no uncertain terms that what they did was wrong. Honor and respect does NOT mean become a bobble-head of approval. The same can be said of our rulers and leaders. Honor does not mean support evil as many Pastors would have your believe. Use your head and be wise and know that in far too many pulpits, the serpent is speaking, not God. You brethren, must have discernment and that only comes from God and from years of walking close to God. It's meat, not milk. Get discernment because it will be vital in the days ahead.
But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
Be like Solomon and ask God for wisdom in these times.
And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment;
Be wise brothers in these times and know that 'big brother' really is listening...

No, It's Not OK
In our times when so much evil and sin seem to permeate out societies and now open sin is accepted, blasphemy is now comedy and most Christian's in America really aren't, we who are truly born of God must be strong in discernment but not rash in judgment. Both of these principles are important. The tragedy today I think especially with American Christians, is that once they get a little knowledge they stand on their own judgment and rail against other Christians who are struggling or have a slightly different view on an issue.Impeachable Offenses?
Brothers, I see this much too often. Christians who have read a couple of conspiracy books or articles begin to rail against Baptists, or Quakers or Catholics or whomever. I wonder how many have spent any time going back and reading some Christian history. Real history, not conspira-history. I love history, I tell you reading it is 100 times more entertaining than watching a movie. Often at night when I hit the hay, I am listing to an audiobook. Right now I am toward the end of a series of lectures on Byzantium. If you are cash strapped (like me) you can go to a local library and check them out. I listen to a lot of those books and some really good ones can be found at LibriVox for free!!! I like to understand how we got where we are today. Particularly Christianity. How did the Church split up into eastern and western halves (Catholic and Orthodox) what were the big debates of the day? How did Iconoclasm launch a veritable civil war inside the Eastern Empire? What was the political backdrop of the Crusades? What kind of disputes arose over the nature of Christ? Why are there so many different protestant denominations?
I think it meet that we as Christians try and have decent understanding of these things lest we repeat some tragic mistakes made by the Church of old - and they made some very tragic mistakes. Protestants, who think they own all truth, go and take a real good look at some of your history. It's as bloody as the Catholics that Protestants so dutifully rail against. It was Protestants that started the Ku Kux Klan and only a Protestant could join it, it was Protestants who took sport in lynchings. It was a protestant Church who burned Catholics in England. It was a protestant king who robbed Catholic Abbey's to fill his own Treasury. It was the father of Protestantism (Luther) who railed against Jews in a work that would have made Hitler proud. So you Protestants who rail against Catholics about their sins, what about yours? How dare you point your finger!! I say this to NO ONE in particular and everyone in General, even myself when I slip up in this area.
You Christians who rail against others and are steadily pointing a finger at someone else what about you...are you now going to play the holy hypocrite? Who set you up as a Judge and why have you not cast the 2-by-4 out of your own eye so that you can see clearly enough to pluck the speck of dust that is in your brothers eye?
Brothers, standing before Christ to be judged is going to be no easy or light matter. Let me tell you how you can make it so difficult that many will simply not be able to enter in. Here is how. Pass Judgment on your brother. That's right, put on those Pharisee robes and start pronouncing sentences against them.
Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.
You who say you obey Christ, why have you not done it this important matter? Why is it that I get an inbox full of folks who try and 'correct' me about Catholics and then I get hit with some 'conspiracy link' I read 10 years ago, full of half truths and blatant inaccuracies? I have many books in my library on the errors of Catholicism. I know them well. I am under no illusions. I have some history books that talk about the errors sins and evils of Protestantism as well. Somehow, those who email me don't want to hear that. They are guided by the spirit of self-proclaimed holier-than-thou-ness (reader beware, lest this dreaded spiritual malaise infect you as well).
I have long ceased to argue with such people. I really have. If they really belong to Christ, he is going to set them straight. They'll be back, but probably with some bumps, bruises and a limp (spiritually speaking) after having learned a very basic lesson in Christianity in the Lords correctional woodshed - Judge Not.
Now this does not mean 'discern not' nor does it mean that sound doctrine should be jettisoned in an assembly. Those in authority have a job to do to keep their flock on solid scriptural ground. 'Judge not' does not mean allowing unrepentant sinners into your fellowships or Churches.
I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? But them that are without God judgeth.Brothers, I say these things to you so that you will not err and wind up being severely chastised of the Lord. I know that I personally do not want to get lumped in with all of the Protestant crimes of the past 500 years so I am not going to lump all of Catholicisms crimes on today's Catholics. I don't want to get lumped in with the horrible errors of many of today's protestant (so-called) ministers so I'm careful about how I view the ordinary the Catholic in light of the bad actions of todays curia and priesthood.
Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.
But that does not excuse sin. It's not OK to sin. It's not OK to wink at it among your brothers in Christ. No brothers, 'Judge not 'does not mean accept unrepentant sin in the household of faith.
Brothers and Sisters, let us all be wise and serpents here and understand what I am saying. Take it to heart because if the Lord has to re-teach these lessons in very basic Christianity to you the hard way, it's only because you would not listen when he told you the easy way.
The more and more I watch the reactions of the Obama administration (they lobbied hard against Congress' recent move to gut these NSA programs), the strange extreme views of key members of the Intelligence Oversight committee, the false statements made under oath before Congress by Senior administration and Intelligence officials and the Presidents insistence that no more information come out about these NSA programs and Putin's acquiescence on this as a condition for Snowden to stay in Russia (Putin probably has all of that info now and would not want to share it with anyone else) and Greenwald's assertion that the worst part of these programs has not been released to the public, I think one can reasonably surmise that whatever they have been doing is pretty far outside the law and the President has probably committed grave and impeachable crimes while in office.Hastings Death Was No Accident
Now we are getting what are probably specious (made up, non-existent, exaggerated or perhaps even 'co-operational' - let's remember this administration has armed Al Qaeda in the past, more than once.) These new Al Qaeda threats have closed US Embassy's on Sunday. This is about par for the course and something I kind of expected from an administration who wants desperately to continue on with its illegal spying programs - to come up with 'a scary picture' to frighten Americans into giving up their liberties. "If we can't read your emails or watch your videos on Facebook, the terrorists are gonna get you...Booooo!!"
This new threat? It's just too convenient. Step back a moment. This administration has already been told that they are going to lose some of the NSA's authority; its just a question of how much and when it happens. That has been made pretty clear. Now, put on your 'evil hat' and jettison all morality and ask yourself this question - How do you drum up support for keeping that authority? Do I need to draw you a picture? I can't draw but I will send you a link. This couldn't be more convenient if you ordered it online at NSA-shopping.net. "We get you headlines that no one can ever disprove because its classified. Guaranteed to scare the hell out of anyone who reads it and get you what you want most - MORE POWER!!"
Let me say this bluntly so that there is no misunderstanding. Recent Presidents have abused the National Security system, not to secure the nation, but as a legal shield against criminal, highly profitable and at times Treasonous behavior (laying the nation open for its enemies). Go back and READ THE PAST. (online version here)
The story is worse today. But as in this spying scandal, Congress has not stepped up to the plate and done its job. If Congress did not know the extent of the abuses, it's because they did not want to know. They were busy. Many with their very sexy interns in horizontal refreshment, others were (and are) obtaining some blow to feed their well known cocaine habits, others are sitting down with foreign corporations or foreign intelligence agents that help them write American laws to the benefit of foreign intelligence front companies (Espionage).
If the President has gotten supremely arrogant it's because he knows Congress isn't going to do anything to him and the people could care less as long as they have movies, sports and porn. He is too confident and that makes me wonder if the President has deemed the Congress as a 'National Security Threat' ( I do not jest) and now spy's on and 'influences' them with brown envelopes when he wants something done or more importantly when he wants a bill killed in the House.
Our form of government cannot withstand that kind of criminality if it has gone that far, and I think on some level, it has. Why is this the least productive Congress EVER? I don't think the NSA surveillance is all or even most of the reason why, but I would venture a guess that it does play a noticeable role.
Our republic is in deeper trouble that most Americans realize. Our increasingly Criminalized National Security System now poses probably the greatest threat to America, her liberties and her form of government, even more so that a few nut-jobs in the desert who have to have the Koran read to them because they can't even read.
I will tell you something else. I also do not think Americans realize that you never get your freedom back without wading through streets paved in blood and walls painted with pieces of human organs; often the organs that once belonged to those you love.
Ask the Syrians or Egyptians ... they'll tell you.
Surveillance footage shows it was no accident. I don't know who was behind this but I will only say that this administration has waged a relentless war (and all that word means) on Journalists who report things about him and his actions, especially in the National Security arena.

Not quite as bad as it sounds but...Kidnapped Christians
This piece deals with the epidemic in Egypt. But this is a world wide phenomenon, not just with Christians but with kids and teens the world over. It is a serious problem here in the US. Here young White Girls (between 12-17, as they command the most money) are often abducted here in the US, taken to a safe house and raped repeatedly and often very violently. The ones they like are shipped of to some rich person or powerful politician overseas. Local police officials who deal with these issues often have the Feds come in and take all of the investigative material, lock it up and then shields the pedophile networks, warning the cops to shut up about it. Often, this is because foreign embassies are involved, But sometimes because powerful US politicians are involved. This is big business and well protected.
Please pray that God releases these kids from this bondage and slavery and executes judgment on those do and those who protect those who do these wicked things.

Send her back to California, let her work in her garden... she will have a very comfortable retirement and lets get someone who will oversee these programs with some vigor.
FYI, it has not escaped my attention that based on revelations that members of the Senate Intelligence oversight Committee were once under surveillance and that anyone who got hold of private conversations and private habits of these members could use that information to blackmail them. So in all fairness, she may very well be being blackmailed to knee-jerk support everything coming out of the agency.

Well OK, maybe David Duke would be worse.
The other replacement is Feinstein. She really needs to be removed and retired from the Senate. Insiders who have dealt with her personally describe her as a very petty, vindictive person with delusions of granduer. She as well has not been honest in her assessment of the value of these programs. One Senator's assessment (who sits on the Intel Oversight Committee) says that no terror plots have actually been stopped as a result of these programs.
Feinstein has been in the Senate too long and like most Senators who sit that long, they get arrogant, lazy, corrupt and unwilling to listen to the people.
I am not trying to get personal. It is just that she chairs this committee and had to know (or should have known) of these abuses. Yet she is out there defending the abuses as though something meaningful has been gained by them and refuses to deal with her failure to curtail the NSA's interpretation of laws that were waaaaay outside the intention of the law that was originally passed.
Oversight means just that - Oversight, not Oversleep and the honorable Senator from California has not been doing her job at providing the adult supervision that the NSA and this administration so clearly needs.
Government Agrees To Review 2000 Cases Involving Hair Samples
Today the Innocence Project, the National Association for Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) and its partners announced a groundbreaking and historic agreement with the FBI and the Department of Justice (DOJ) to review more than 2,000 criminal cases in which the FBI conducted microscopic hair analysis of crime scene evidence. The agencies agreed to undertake the review after three men who had served lengthy prison sentences were exonerated by DNA testing in cases in which three different FBI hair examiners provided testimony which exceeded the limits of science and contributed to their wrongful convictions. The review will focus on specific cases in which FBI Laboratory reports and testimony included statements that were scientifically invalid.
Moreover all the chief of the priests, and the people, transgressed very much after all the abominations of the heathen; and polluted the house of the LORD which he had hallowed in Jerusalem. And the LORD God of their fathers sent to them by his messengers, rising up betimes, and sending; because he had compassion on his people, and on his dwelling place: But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against his people, till there was no remedy. Therefore he brought upon them the king of the Chaldees, who slew their young men with the sword in the house of their sanctuary, and had no compassion upon young man or maiden, old man, or him that stooped for age: he gave them all into his hand. And all the vessels of the house of God, great and small, and the treasures of the house of the LORD, and the treasures of the king, and of his princes; all these he brought to Babylon.
Special Prayer Request
The Lord has asked me to ask my dedicated Christian readers to lift up all of the people who currently reside in refugee camps, especially those who have fled Syria.
We all tend to worry and plan our futures. Weather it is retirement, career, where we are going to live, etc. But think about having lived in a camp for many months with no hope of going back to your homes anytime soon or even finding it still standing when you do. Think about living in makeshift tents and accommodations and essentially being in an alien nation as a refugee. Think about the daily discomforts and the difficulties, especially if you have children. Think about Christians who are in these camps who may not be treated well by the majority of Muslims.
I ask all of you to pray for the refugees of Syria, old and young Christian and Muslim that their troubles will be eased and that the Civil War comes to an end quickly.

FPIF also has a piece on events in Turkey where Erdrogan has embarked on a brutal crackdown ala Mubarak.
For the time being, Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan—with brutal police tactics that killed four people and injured more than 8,000—appears to have successfully crushed demonstrations aimed at blocking the demolition of Gezi Park in central Istanbul and has weathered a similar outbreak in the country’s capital, Ankara.
But the upsurge was never just about preserving green space, and the picture conjured up by most of the Western media—secular Istanbul liberals vs. a popular prime minister backed by a conservative majority in Turkey’s Anatolian hinterlands—was always an oversimplification of the grievances behind the unrest. - FPIF

Congress Holds Hearings On Prism
Those interested in watching the latest dog and pony show with more perjured testimony Senators have probably suborned from intelligence officials, the link is at CSPAN.
I will only add that nothing these guys tell you in open and unclassified session on these programs is going to resemble the whole truth. You will get half truths at best and outright lies more that once or twice... yes under oath. Officials will have lots of qualifiers in their testimony that is designed to give you a warm fuzzy while they collect all of this data on you and me and reassure you of bureaucratic 'procedures' that have replaced the legal regime of probable cause before a Judge. 'Procedures' that they talk about may or may not even exist.
I often heard the words 'in this program' when asked heated questions by Senators when asked about capabilities. 'No that is not possible in this program' was the kind of response.
But it appears that other programs do allow for the very things these high ranking prevaricators say don't exist. Forgive me for using the word perjurer, but to my legal mind when you tell a deliberate untruth under oath, that by definition is perjury. The Director's responses to questions in the past were not truthful and as I understand it, he was given a list of questions before the hearing so this was no inadvertent slip.

Why? The President suddenly develops a reason to talk to House Democrats (he usually ignores) at the exact same time Greenwald was to Testify.

The Muslim Persection Of Christians - April 2013
Before Egypt's President Muhammad Morsi was ousted, April was one of the worst months for Christian Copts there. On April 5 near Cairo, when a longstanding feud between a Christian family and a Muslim family—based on male Muslims sexually harassing Christian girls—culminated in the violent deaths of six Christians, including two of the participants, a Christian and a Muslim, being set on fire, local Muslims went on another "collective punishment" spree. It resulted in the injury of at least 20 other Copts, an Evangelical church being set on fire, and an attack on a Coptic church, Two days later, after Copts had mourned their dead in the St. Mark Cathedral—Coptic Christianity's holiest site and home to the Coptic pope—Muslim mobs, who had waited outside, launched yet another attack—aided by state security forces. Eyewitnesses said as many as 40-50 tear gas canisters targeted the mourners, many of whom were women and children hiding in the cathedral. Two more Copts were killed and many dozens wounded as other officers stood by while the Muslim mob tried to destroy the cathedral.
On one Friday after prayers, the Bilal Ibn Rabah Mosque in Cairo was turned into a "torture chamber" for Egyptians, many of whom were Christians, protesting the Muslim Brotherhood. One of the victims, Amir Ayad, a Christian, said he was severely beaten before being left for dead at the side of the road. He suffered a fractured skull, a broken arm, bleeding in his right eye and pellet wounds. Coptic Christian children, mostly boys, were targeted for kidnapping and held for ransom; one 6-year-old, after his family had paid the Muslim kidnapper, was killed. And a video appeared on Arabic-language websites showing a crowd of Muslims in Egypt assaulting and raping two Christian women on a crowded street and in broad daylight. Throughout, the women scream in terror as the men shout Islamic slogans such as "Allahu Akbar" "[Allah is Greater.] None of the many passersby intervenes in any way.
Also in April, during Easter week in Nigeria, Muslim herdsmen launched a series of raids, killing at least 80 Christians, on Christian villages. Most of those slain were either children or the elderly. Over 200 Christian homes were destroyed, eight churches burned, and 4,500 Christians displaced. According to a pastor present at the time, "It was a helpless situation, as no Christians had any weapon to fight back. Women, children, and the elderly who were not able to escape were shot and killed. Luckily, all my children are in school, so this made it easier for our escape from the Muslim attackers. We sneaked away in the midst of the confusion and trekked for more than 20 kilometers [12 miles] to find a place to stay."
Categorized by theme, the rest of April's Muslim persecution of Christians around the world includes (but is not limited to) the following accounts, listed by theme and in country alphabetical order, not necessarily according to severity:
Central African Republic: A number of church buildings were attacked and the homes of Christians looted in the aftermath of a bloody coup by Sharia-adherent Muslim rebels. During the chaos, as in a standard jihad, Christian property was targeted for plundering, while Muslim property was spared. The leader of the Muslim rebels, Michel Djotodia, "assumed the presidency from the ousted François Bozizé, becoming the predominantly Christian nation's first Muslim president." According to one Christian, "We are no longer at home. They pillage our goods which are then sold by the Muslims, who export them."
Indonesia: Local officials, at the behest of Islamist forces, demolished the Batak Protestant Church building in West Java and threatened to close others, causing hundreds of Christians to protest in the streets. Once again, as happens with increasing regularity in Indonesia, congregation members then held services in the street, near the site of the destroyed church. As the Morning Star News added: Indonesian officials routinely delay or deny church building permits… thus providing Islamic extremists a pretext for protests and attacks." Newspapers covering the event posted photos of "church members in tears—singing hymns, crying and begging local officials not to demolish their facility. Hundreds of police and army officers guarded the area while Muslim militants, shouting Koranic verses, cheered the excavator."
Saudi Arabia: Apparently once again "The Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia—the top Islamic official in the country of Saudi Arabia—has [again] declared that it is 'necessary to destroy all the churches of the region." ( First reported here over a year ago.)
