NO, You do not have to have cancer! NO, You do not need to have cancer!

That's right, you do not need to have cancer, just as you do not need to have diabetics or teeth that are falling out. I am becoming more and more convinced that those who undergo such murderous treatments as chemotherapy, radiation and disfiguring operating are doing it because they are either to lazy, to cheap or to stupid to look for more successful , less intrusive options. Or perhaps they just like having people feeling sorry for them.

Happy ThanksGiving Thursday November 28, 2013 update

Folks, just like having cancer, most folks choose to be unsaved. Just as the vast majority choose to use the ineffective raidation, chemotheropy, and operations, the vast majority, likewise, choose the road to hell rather than the road to life eternal with Christ Jesus. Just as you don't have to have cancer, you likewise don't have to go to hell, the chose is yours and yours alone, for as no doctor can make you undergo the deadly chemotheropy and or radiation treatements, no one can force you to remain the property of satan.

H.R. 3121. To repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act you won't find this in the portland press hearld or hear it on tabloid six.

HR 3121, the secret bill not even the media’s “best” reporters can find

by Kevin “Coach” Collins

Shhh! don’t tell anyone, but there is a super top secret bill the sneaky Republicans are putting together that so far has eluded the media’s notice. It’s gaining support right under their noses and they don’t know a thing about it.  Not even the media’s Democrat masters seem to know this bill exists.

The secret bill, HR 3121, The American Health Care Reform Act (AHCRA) is being treated as if it were the Unicorn Husbandry and Cultivation Act. Although it has over 100 House Republicans ready to sign on as co-sponsors the media has not heard about it and – silly gooses! – they keep saying the “Republicans don’t have any alternative to Obamacare.”!

There is, of course, very good reason for the media to ignore this news, but the AHCRA is here, it is real and it is another problem for the Left’s lie machine.

HR 3121 would not only repeal Barack Obama’s greatest assault on American liberties, it would actually achieve the goals of better, cheaper and more easily attainable healthcare the cynical Obama lied about while “selling” his plan.

The bill which is being spearheaded by Louisiana Republican Steve Scalise, contains fewer than 200 pages instead of the 2700 in Obamacare.

AHCRA will:  

Fully repeal President Obama’s health care law, eliminating billions in taxes and thousands of pages of unworkable regulations and mandates that are driving up health care costs.

Spur competition to lower health care costs by allowing Americans to purchase health insurance across state lines and enable small businesses to pool together and get the same buying power as large corporations.

Reform medical malpractice laws in a commonsense way that limits trial lawyer fees and non-economic damages while maintaining strong protections for patients.

Provide tax reform that allows families and individuals to deduct health care costs, just like companies, leveling the playing field and providing all Americans with a standard deduction for health insurance.

Expand access to Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), increasing the amount of pre-tax dollars individuals can deposit into portable savings accounts to be used for health care expenses.

Safeguard individuals with pre-existing conditions from being discriminated against purchasing health insurance by bolstering state-based high risk pools and extending HIPAA guaranteed availability protections.

Protect the unborn by ensuring no federal funding of abortions.

If the Republicans introduce it as, The Repeal Obamacare Act of 2014 maybe the media will notice it.

Doesn't the MAFIA consider US Congress rivals? Italian mobsters beat rival gangster with metal bars before feeding him to pigs, police investigation claims

Mafia mobsters allegedly beat a rival gangster with metal bars and then fed him to pigs while he was still alive, it has emerged from an investigation by the Italian police.

Francesco Raccosta was allegedly fed to the pigs, which are prized for their ability to dispose of most of a human body, as part of a bloody turf war between two clans belonging to the 'Ndrangheta mafia of Calabria, in the far south of Italy.

The horrific killing is reminiscent of a scene in the film Snatch, directed by Guy Ritchie, in which a British gangster called Brick Top recommends disposing of a dead body by feeding it to pigs.

The murder of Raccosta was allegedly led by Simone Pepe, 24, a rival gangster, who was arrested this week.

He described the killing in chilling terms to a friend in a telephone conversation that was intercepted by police.

“It was satisfying to hear him scream...Mamma mia, how he squealed, but I couldn’t give a s---. Someone said a few bits of him remained at the end of it all, but I couldn’t see anything, for me nothing remained at all. I said, wow, how a pig can eat!” Pepe is suspected of having carried out at least three other murders, including that of Vincenzo Raccosta, the father of Francesco Raccosta. The murders were allegedly committed as revenge for the death of mafia boss Domenico Bonarrigo, 45, on March 3 2012. ... source

Want more Obama?

In The Washington Post, Jonathan Zimmerman, a history professor from NYU, has written an article claiming that all of America’s problems would be soloved–GET THIS–if only we would allow Barack Obama to run for a third term!

He wants to amend the Constitution and abolish presidential term limits.

Zimmerman writes that Obama–whose approval rating is at an all time low of 37%–would be much more effective at governing if he could stand for re-election in 2016 because then he’d be less likely to “ignore” the will of the American people. “It’s time to put that power back where it belongs,” he writes. “Barack Obama should be allowed to stand for re election just as citizens should be allowed to vote for — or against — him. Anything less diminishes our leaders and ourselves.”

We don’t know whether to shake our heads in disbelief, or burst out laughing.

This professor admits that only a third of Americans approve of the job Obama is doing in office, yet he wants us to believe that we’d be better off if he were able to be president until the year 2020–and beyond?

That’s some strange logic.

Just one week ago, the very same newspaper ran a story predicting that if the 2012 election were held now, Mitt Romney would win the White House, not Obama.

Right now, this country has a serious case of voter’s remorse. Therefore the timing for this call for a potential third Obama term couldn’t be worse.

If we were going to go to the trouble of amending the Constitution, I think more Americans would be interested in adding the power to recall this president than would be interested in giving him a third term.

Iran: White House Lying About Details of Nuke Deal

Iranian officials say White House fact sheet is ‘invalid’

White House / Wikimedia Commons

BY:

Iranian officials say that the White House is misleading the public about the details of an interim nuclear agreement reached over the weekend in Geneva.

Iran and Western nations including the United States came to an agreement on the framework for an interim deal late Saturday night in Geneva. The deal has yet to be implemented

The White House released a multi-page fact sheet containing details of the draft agreement shortly after the deal was announced.

However, Iranian foreign ministry official on Tuesday rejected the White House’s version of the deal as “invalid” and accused Washington of releasing a factually inaccurate primer that misleads the American public.

“What has been released by the website of the White House as a fact sheet is a one-sided interpretation of the agreed text in Geneva and some of the explanations and words in the sheet contradict the text of the Joint Plan of Action, and this fact sheet has unfortunately been translated and released in the name of the Geneva agreement by certain media, which is not true,” Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham told the Iranian press on Tuesday.

Afkham and officials said that the White House has “modified” key details of the deal and released their own version of the agreement.

Iran’s right to enrich uranium, the key component in a nuclear weapon, is fully recognized under the draft released by Tehran.

“This comprehensive solution would enable Iran to fully enjoy its right to nuclear energy for peaceful purposes under the relevant articles of the NPT in conformity with its obligations therein,” the agreement reads, according to a copy released to Iranian state-run media.

“This comprehensive solution would involve a mutually defined enrichment programme with practical limits and transparency measures to ensure the peaceful nature of the programme,” the Iranian draft reads. “This comprehensive solution would constitute an integrated whole where nothing is agreed until everything is agreed.”

Iran’s objection to the deal raises new concerns about final stage talks meant to ensure that the deal is implemented in the next few weeks.

The White House confirmed to the Washington Free Beacon on Monday that the final details of the plan have yet to be worked out, meaning that Iran is not yet beholden to a six month freeze its nuclear activities.

“Technical details to implement the Joint Plan of Action must be finalized before the terms of the Plan begin,” a senior administration official told the Free Beacon. “The P5+1 and Iran are working on what the timeframe is.”

The White House could not provide additional details on the timeframe when approached by the Free Beacon on Tuesday.

As the details are finalized, Iran will have the ability to continue its most controversial enrichment program. This drew criticism from proponents of tough nuclear restrictions.

“The six month clock should have started early Sunday morning,” said former Ambassador Mark Wallace, the CEO of United Against a Nuclear Iran (UANI). “If this is a serious agreement, the P5+1 must ensure that these negotiations do not become a tool for Iran to further increase its enrichment abilities.”

Christians United for Israel (CUFI) Executive Director David Brog said he fears that the White House may have been “played by the Iranians.”

“This may prove to be yet another worrisome sign that the Obama Administration was played by the Iranians,” Brog told the Free Beacon in a statement. “Their concessions were either illusory or meaningless, while ours will resuscitate the Iranian economy.”

The White House said in its fact sheet on the deal that it could release up to $7 billion dollars to Iran during the first phase of the agreement.

The United States additionally agreed to suspend “certain sanctions on gold and precious metals, Iran’s auto sector, and Iran’s petrochemical exports, potentially providing Iran approximately $1.5 billion in revenue,” according to the now disputed fact sheet.

Iran could earn another $4.2 billion in oil revenue under the deal.

Another “$400 million in governmental tuition assistance” could also be “transferred from restricted Iranian funds directly to recognized educational institutions in third countries to defray the tuition costs of Iranian students,” according to the White House.

While Iranian foreign ministry officials did not specify their precise disagreements with the White House, they insisted that “the Iranian delegation was much rigid and laid much emphasis on the need for this accuracy.”

The Knockout Game Is Just A Preview Of The Chaos That Is Coming To The Streets Of America

There is a hot new game being played in cities all over America, and it is very simple.  You pick out a defenseless person on the street and you try to knock them out.  In most areas, it is known as “the knockout game”.  In some communities it is called by other names such as “point-em-out, knock-em-out” and “polar bear hunting”.  In many instances, the perpetrators don’t even try to steal anything from the people that they knock out.  The goal is just to “have fun” by brutally attacking an innocent victim.  Well, if this is what young thugs in America will do for fun when times are still good, what will they be willing to do when our economy really starts falling apart?  Yes, the U.S. economy has definitely been steadily declining, but the truth is that what we are experiencing right now is rip-roaring prosperity compared to what is coming in the years ahead.  So what will the streets of America look like when things get really bad?

If you have never heard of “the knockout game” before, the following is how USA Today recently described it…

Dangerous “knockout” attacks on strangers are leading to arrests, more officers flooding the streets and more warnings for vigilance by an unsuspecting public.

Perpetrators have dubbed the violent practice as the “knockout game,” in which young people try to randomly knock out strangers with one punch.

Recent attacks in New York, New Haven, Conn., Washington, D.C. and suburban Philadelphia have raised concerns across the country.

Of course there are variations on the game.  Sometimes the goal is to knock out victims with a single punch, but in other instances entire groups of young thugs attack a victim and the goal is to see who can knock out the victim first.

Most of the time this game does not involve the theft of belongings, but in other cases it does.  For example, the following is how one teen described the game

“You just knock them out. You hit them with a blow and you take their belongings.”

Most of the time, the victims are males.

But this is not always true.

In fact, the Huffington Post recently reported on an incident in which a 78-year-old grandmother was attacked…

Earlier this month, CBS 2 reported on a series of attacks on Jews in Brooklyn, allegedly part of a disturbing game that has teens punching Jewish adults in an effort to try to knock them over.

Now it appears the action — dubbed the “knockout game” — has spread. Violent videos shot in other cities and in as many as six states, show teenagers knocking into other victims on purpose including, most recently, a 78-year-old grandmother in Brooklyn.

The victim’s daughter said she was walking along in broad daylight when a young African-American male knocked her down. He didn’t take anything, she said, and didn’t seem interested in anything but hitting her as hard as he could before running off.

Sometimes, the victims of “the knockout game” never get back up.  Last year, a 20-year-old college student in Minnesota was killed by a pack of thugs playing the knockout game.  You can see a video news report about that incident right here.

Knockout game deaths have also been reported in Syracuse, in St. Louis and in New Jersey.  In the case in New Jersey, the attackers left 46-year-old Ralph Santiago lodged between iron fence posts with a broken neck

One victim shown in the footage is a 46-year-old man from Hoboken, N.J., who was found dead with his neck broken and head lodged between iron fence posts, according to NJ.com.

Video surveillance shows Santiago walking in an alleyway in broad daylight, and just as he’s about to pass a pack of teenagers, one launches the fatal, knockout blow.

And what’s the point?

“For the fun of it,” one teen said in the video.

This is not just “harmless fun”.

People are actually dying.

Sadly, this is just one more sign that our society is starting to come apart at the seams.  Violent crime in America was up 15 percent last year, and an epidemic of very unusual crimes is sweeping the nation.

We are rapidly getting to the point where criminals are becoming so cold-hearted that they will go after just about anyone.  For example, in Stockton, California the other day some thugs held an entire youth soccer team at gunpoint with a shotgun…

It’s a soccer practice hold-up. Kids and the coach were victims of an armed robbery at a park in Stockton.

The team of 16 year olds was practicing on a tennis court when three other teens came up to them with a shotgun and demanded their stuff.

“This park is very dangerous. You can’t trust anyone anymore,” said James Griffin, a neighbor.

Stockton police say an entire team was held at gunpoint and robbed of their cell phones, keys and gym bags during practice.

All of this is happening at a time when police budgets are being deeply cut all over the nation.

If you do call the police, they might be able to help you.  There are still lots of good cops out there.

But if you get a bad cop, you might deeply regret ever picking up that telephone.

Just consider what happened to an innocent 19-year-old girl that was recently stopped by a member of the San Antonio Police Department

Officer Jackie Neal, 40, was in full uniform, in a marked squad car and on-duty when he made a traffic stop Friday morning and sexually assaulted a 19-year-old woman, according to the San Antonio Police Department.

Police said Neal, an 11-year veteran with SAPD, pulled the victim over on the south side and managed to get the woman to stand behind his squad car. What happened next, San Antonio police Chief William McManus described as “unthinkable.”

In this day and age, it has become much more important for all of us to learn how to defend ourselves.  As the U.S. economy spirals downhill, people are going to become increasingly desperate.  And desperate people do desperate things.

The thin veneer of civilization that we all take for granted on a daily basis is beginning to disappear.

Some Americans are choosing to fight back.

Just consider what happened in Seattle the other day…

Robert Moore was ringing-up a customer around 10 p.m. at the Morning Star Mini Mart, located in the 8800 block of 9th Ave SW, when two men entered the store wearing ski masks. One of the men stayed near the entrance of the store while the other attempted robber approached the counter and pointed a gun at Moore.

“This is a robbery,” Moore said the man told him.

Moore said the attempted robber’s gun didn’t look real.

“I looked at his gun and said ‘I have a bigger one than you do,’ ” he said.

Moore then turned to reach for his own gun and that’s when the attempted robbers took off in a white SUV with dark markings toward the rear of the driver’s side and a sun roof.

So how will you respond when the thugs come to your home or your business?

Don't

*******


Now the police on the state, local and county level need to choose who they will align themselves with, the feds or the people.

*******

So you feel safe?

So once you are inside the security area at the airport, after you have watched your wife and daughter groped by the tsa perverts, you think to yourself safe from the terrorist, not the tsa terrorist, but the muslim brotherhood terrorist.

Think again! Things you can’t bring on a plane: Scissors, gel candles, large snow globes.

Things you can bring on a plane: A homemade shotgun.

Programmer by day, “security researcher” by night, Evan Booth has built, tested, and demonstrated not just a shotgun, but a whole comically named arsenal of DIY weapons, made solely with items purchased in the airport--after the security screening.

Booth's instructions on using lithium batteries and Axe body spray to create a working shotgun, the Blunderbusiness Class which he test by firing spare change through dry wall.

“I think people have kind of been suspecting that the type of things I’ve built are possible,” says Booth, “I just don’t think anyone’s ever taken the time to do it.” The object of the research is a demonstration--half silly, half disturbing--that weapons are everywhere and that the "security theater" of the TSA is not doing that much to keep us safe.

"If we're trying stop a terrorist threat at the airport," says Booth. "It's already too late."

The project began after the introduction of body scanners. “It just seemed so invasive, really expensive,” he says. “And if you’re going to go through all that trouble getting into the terminal, why is all this stuff available in the terminal?”

The “stuff” Booth uses isn’t necessarily what you’d expect. Recurring ingredients include dental floss and magazines, Axe body spray, and condoms.

In this video, Booth demonstrates how his airport-made crossbow can shoot a projectile into a human-head-like watermelon.

The deadly weapons these ingredients become arise from a combination of “MacGyver-esque” creative thinking and good old-fashioned research. To figure out how someone might build a bulletproof vest to protect against an air marshal's gun, Booth, says: “I specifically Googled ‘roughly how many pages can a 9 mm FMJ penetrate,'” he says. “I think it was around 500.”

The early weapons are low-tech. On his Terminal Cornucopia website--and in hilarious talks at security conferences--he shows how magazine-and-fridge-magnet “Chucks of Liberty” nunchucks can shatter a coconut, and a crossbow (“Cerrsberr”) made from umbrella ribs can put an arrow through a watermelon.

But some weapons pose what seems like a genuine threat. “That really only happened recently,” says Booth. He realized that airport stores sell lithium metal batteries, which, when combined with water, create a chemical reaction with enough heat to explode a bottle of Axe. This is what powers his “Blunderbussiness Class” shotgun, which he demonstrates shooting $1.33 in pocket change through a piece of drywall, as well as his “Fraguccino” thermos grenade. “Right now if I wanted to build something very potent, I would probably go toward lithium,” says Booth.

For a less subtle weapon (and message), Booth shows that you can make a club using a copy of the Constitution and a replica of the Washington Monument.

Before you call the FBI or the TSA, you might be slightly comforted to know that Booth says he’s been sending both agencies reports before putting any of the data online. So far the TSA hasn't called, but the FBI did come by for an unannounced visit. “That was really the first time that I knew someone had looked over the material and put together a report on their end,” he says. “That was encouraging.” He says their questions centered on whether he had actually assembled any weapons at the airport; he hadn’t. (He does his work in a garage and home office in Greensboro, North Carolina.)

Booth took the opportunity to ask them for research funding, but was told there was nothing available. “It would have been awesome if I’d had access to, like, a cockpit door,” he says.

He plans to continue as a freelancer, and has some chemicals as well as a stun gun in mind. But for now he's on hiatus, at least until his daughter is born in December. After that, he may have to figure out a new location for his work. “It pretty safe to say when I'm in build mode, my office is the least kid-friendly place on Earth,” he says.

The left’s takeover of the American military

One more reason we need a man with the honesty, integrity and force of moral compass of Bruce Poliquin in the US Congress.

by Jim Emerson,  staff writer

Obama’s uneasiness with Generals
A hallmark of dictators is the purging of senior military officers in the hope of eliminating any viable opposition to future tyrannical actions. A large number of senior military officials–around 200 flag officers–have been relieved by the Kenyan Muslim in Chief in the last five years. (2) Obama is working diligently to create a totally obedient, Democrat Party controlled military. After the Arab Spring uprising overthrew the old government and installed Muslim Brotherhood President Muhammed Morsi in Egypt, both Morsi and Obama expected Egyptian Military officers to subordinate themselves to the whims of a tyrant with Washington and terrorist connections. Obama watched that experiment closely because it was essentially to become his roadmap to total power in the United States.

Compliant Officer Class
The blogosphere is becoming keenly aware of an ongoing purge of Generals and Admirals in the US Military who are not in lock-step with Obama’s agenda. Senior military officers are being intimidated against speaking out. The real damage will be created and if the left create a “compliant officer class” to carry out the wishes of America’s first elected dictator of the modern era. What is going to stop the Kenyan from ordering the Armed forces to suppress insurgent Tea Partiers? Obama has a history of destroying any opposition and the main stream press has always been more than willing to help him out. If Obama succeeds, leaders of the U.S. Armed Forces will not have the backbone to tell the political class “no” to future commands. Even today there are few combat Generals in the ranks; most senior officers are political animals. That is why there was little opposition to the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. If any officer spoke up they were first booted out of the cocktail parties and later drummed out the military. In the service this is called a “Soft kill” of someone’s military career.

Obama’s uneasiness
Retired Army Lt. Gen. James Dubik told Political Magazine “There are several basic models of civil-military relations.” The first is the traditional one of separate spheres of authority: “Civilians do policy; the military executes”—but still decides the means of execution. In a second model, “Civilians are the principals, the military are specialized employees. The military can advise, but they must do what the boss says in the way the boss wants, no more and no less.”  (1) He points out the separation of the military from civilian leaders where the leadership sets policy and the military executes. Unfortunately, too many politicians expect military officers to be their unquestioning loyal servants. This breed discontent among the ranks. Politicians tend to be short-sited whereas the traditional military must plan for all contingencies. The Obama administration does not have a grasp of this concept, nor will they. As in Syria, Libya and Egypt the administration didn’t have a clue as to the long term effects of their policies. They were interested only in focusing on favorable political spin for Sunday morning talk shows. But bombing something or killing someone as a symbolic gesture has consequences. Gen. Paul Eaton sums it up best when he said “The military does not take kindly to people asking them to do things without thinking them through.”

China Announces That It Is Going To Stop Stockpiling U.S. Dollars
by Michael Snyder

China just dropped an absolute bombshell, but it was almost entirely ignored by the mainstream media in the United States.  The central bank of China has decided that it is “no longer in China’s favor to accumulate foreign-exchange reserves”.  During the third quarter of 2013, China’s foreign-exchange reserves were valued at approximately $3.66 trillion.  And of course the biggest chunk of that was made up of U.S. dollars.  For years, China has been accumulating dollars and working hard to keep the value of the dollar up and the value of the yuan down.  One of the goals has been to make Chinese products less expensive in the international marketplace.  But now China has announced that the time has come for it to stop stockpiling U.S. dollars.  And if that does indeed turn out to be the case, than many U.S. analysts are suggesting that China could also soon stop buying any more U.S. debt.  Needless to say, all of this would be very bad for the United States.

For years, China has been systematically propping up the value of the U.S. dollar and keeping the value of the yuan artificially low.  This has resulted in a massive flood of super cheap products from across the Pacific that U.S. consumers have been eagerly gobbling up.

For example, have you ever gone into a dollar store and wondered how anyone could possibly make a profit by making those products and selling them for just one dollar?

Well, the truth is that when you flip those products over you will find that almost all of them have been made outside of the United States.  In fact, the words “made in China” are probably the most common words in your entire household if you are anything like the typical American.

Thanks to the massively unbalanced trade that we have had with China, tens of thousands of our businesses, millions of our jobs and trillions of our dollars have left this country and gone over to China.

And now China has apparently decided that there is not much gutting of our economy left to do and that it is time to let the dollar collapse.  As I mentioned above, China has announced that it is going to stop stockpiling foreign-exchange reserves

The People’s Bank of China said the country does not benefit any more from increases in its foreign-currency holdings, adding to signs policy makers will rein in dollar purchases that limit the yuan’s appreciation.

“It’s no longer in China’s favor to accumulate foreign-exchange reserves,” Yi Gang, a deputy governor at the central bank, said in a speech organized by China Economists 50 Forum at Tsinghua University yesterday. The monetary authority will “basically” end normal intervention in the currency market and broaden the yuan’s daily trading range, Governor Zhou Xiaochuan wrote in an article in a guidebook explaining reforms outlined last week following a Communist Party meeting. Neither Yi nor Zhou gave a timeframe for any changes.

It isn’t going to happen overnight, but the value of the U.S. dollar is going to start to go down, and all of that cheap stuff that you are used to buying at Wal-Mart and the dollar store is going to become a lot more expensive.

But of even more importance is what this latest move by China could mean for U.S. government debt.  As most Americans have heard, we are heavily dependent on foreign nations such as China lending us money.  Right now, China owns nearly 1.3 trillion dollars of our debt.  Unfortunately, as CNBC is noting, if China is going to quit stockpiling our dollars than it is likely that they will stop stockpiling our debt as well…

Analysts see this as the PBoC hinting that it will let its currency fluctuate, without intervention, thus negating the need for holding large reserves of the dollar. And if the dollar is no longer needed, then it could look to curb its purchases of dollar-denominated assets like U.S. Treasurys.

“If they are looking to reduce these purchases going forward then, yes, you’d have to look at who the marginal buyer would be,” Richard McGuire, a senior rate strategist at Rabobank told CNBC in an interview.

“Together, with the Federal Reserve tapering its bond purchases, it has the potential to add to the bearish long-term outlook on U.S. Treasurys.”

So who is going to buy all of our debt?

That is a very good question.

If the Federal Reserve starts tapering bond purchases and China quits buying our debt, who is going to fill the void?

If there is significantly less demand for government bonds, that will cause interest rates to rise dramatically.  And if interest rates rise dramatically from where they are now, that will set off the kind of nightmare scenario that I keep talking about.

In a previous article entitled “How China Can Cause The Death Of The Dollar And The Entire U.S. Financial System“, I described how China could single-handedly cause immense devastation to the U.S. economy.

China accounts for more global trade that anyone else does, and they also own more of our debt than any other nation does.  If China starts dumping our dollars and our debt, much of the rest of the planet would likely follow suit and we would be in for a world of hurt.

And just this week there was another major announcement which indicates that China is getting ready to make a major move against the U.S. dollar.  According to Reuters, crude oil futures may soon be pricedin yuan on the Shanghai Futures Exchange…

The Shanghai Futures Exchange (SHFE) may price its crude oil futures contract in yuan and use medium sour crude as its benchmark, its chairman said on Thursday, adding that the bourse is speeding up preparatory work to secure regulatory approvals.

China, which overtook the United States as the world’s top oil importer in September, hopes the contract will become a benchmark in Asia and has said it would allow foreign investors to trade in the contract without setting up a local subsidiary.

If that actually happens, that will be absolutely huge.

China is the number one importer of oil in the world, and it was only a matter of time before they started to openly challenge the petrodollar.

But even I didn’t think that we would see anything like this so quickly.

The world is changing, and most Americans have absolutely no idea what this is going to mean for them.  As demand for the U.S. dollar and U.S. debt goes down, the things that we buy at the store will cost a lot more, our standard of living will go down and it will become a lot more expensive for everyone (including the U.S. government) to borrow money.

Unfortunately, there isn’t much that can be done about any of this at this point.  When it comes to economics, China has been playing chess while the United States has been playing checkers.  And now decades of very, very foolish decisions are starting to catch up with us.

The false prosperity that most Americans are enjoying today will soon start disappearing, and most of them will have no idea why it is happening.

The years ahead are going to be very challenging, and so I hope that you are getting ready for them.

Why the forces of evil so want to keep Bruce Poliquin out of congress:

The Looming Democrat Disaster
By Bruce Walker

The second presidential midterm has historically been a disaster for the political party whose man is in the White House. In 2006, Republicans lost both houses of Congress as Bush fatigue not only led voters to vote against Republicans, but also led many Republicans to stay home. Although there have been a few anomalies -- like 1998, when the Senate Republicans' cravenness in Clinton's impeachment trial opened the door for modest Democrat gains; in 1986; in 1974; in 1966; in 1958; and in 1942 (a third midterm, but in a four-term presidency) -- the party in power generally suffers dramatic losses.

Democrats are beginning to realize that there simply is no sleight of hand that will shift the attention of energized Republicans or raise the spirits of disheartened Democrats in 2014. That would suggest that in House races, which happen every year, and in state government races, which are generally set to coincide with midterm elections rather than presidential elections, Democrats will lose many races for seats that they currently hold.

House Democrats can only look with dread at the current presidential polling data. It is worse than in 2010, when Democrats suffered tremendous losses. Rasmussen, for example, shows that on Election Day in 2010, 28% of Americans "strongly approved" of Obama's performance as president, while 44% of American "strongly disapproved," for a difference among voters with strong opinions of -16% for Democrats. What does Rasmussen show today? Only 22% of Americans "strongly approve" of Obama's performance while 44% "strongly disapprove," which is a difference among voters with strong opinions of -22%.

There is no reason to doubt that those numbers will leak into state legislative races -- that is just what happened in 2010 -- and Republicans could actually come out of the 2014 election with control of more state legislative chambers than they had after 2010. This could easily reach the greatest disparity in state legislative support between the two major parties that Republicans have enjoyed since their party was formed in 1856.

Secondary statewide elective offices, which often get little attention, should produce similar results. The number of Republicans who are lieutenant governor, state attorney general, state treasurer, state auditor, and the like could also reach a historic high. While governor's races often stand on their own, a few percentage points could easily tip five or six gubernatorial races.

If this happens -- if Republicans have a tsunami as in 2010 -- then a whole range of changes in state law that affect big labor, education bosses, voter fraud and voter ID issues, abortion laws, tort reform, and the like could produce before the 2016 presidential election sweeping Republican reforms at the state level which will weaken the Democrats' traditional allies and create many success stories that show how sensible conservative policies work.

As if that were not enough, the Senate class of 2014 has turned into a nightmare. Seats in Arkansas, Alaska, Louisiana, North Carolina, West Virginia, South Dakota, and Montana are all vulnerable, and in states like Iowa, Virginia, New Mexico, and Colorado, the seats could easily flip in a strong Republican tide. Even Delaware, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Michigan, and Oregon cannot be considered completely safe for Democrats.

If Republicans make major gains in the House, win a working majority in the Senate, and hold a clear preponderance of power in state government, what will Obama's last two years in office be like? His nominees will face grilling and, depending upon how radical they are, rejection by the Senate. More and more states could pull out of the ObamaCare catastrophe, rendering Obama's keynote issue gutted and despised.

The House and Senate, if the filibuster rules are modified, could force upon this hapless "leader" one popular bill after another, leaving him the sole and lonely option of vetoing (or signing and allowing Republicans to govern). Assuming he haughtily and angrily vetoes these bills, Obama faces an even worse fate: many Democrats, already saddled with an increasingly unpopular president, may feel forced to join Republicans in overriding the veto. Few images in American politics are as pathetic as a president who cannot even sustain a veto with the support of his party.

AmmoLand Gun News

AmmoLand Gun News

Manasquan, NJ --(Ammoland.com)- Mike Weisser, proprietor of the Ware Gun Shop in Ware, MA is a con-man, deadbeat and enemy of the Second Amendment!

How can we make such bold statement?

Because we know first hand, fact is he owes AmmoLand Shooting Sports News for advertising we ran for him, when he was doing business as “Grey Lock Holsters” in 2012.  On good faith we ran his ads, as we do with all our advertisers, and after making him loads of money he stiffed us for $1800.00, dodging all our phone calls and emails ever since.

Yeah we know. Having people steal from you happens in any business, we can deal with that, but here is the rub with this POS.

So called mikethegunguy, Mike Weisser, is basically a double agent agent working to undermine our second rights with his articles on his blog mikethegunguy, the Huffington Post and elsewhere on the web. ( common sense should tell any gunny that a so called pro gun writer for HUFPO is a joke ).

On one hand he claims to be an insider in the shooting sports industry, gun shop owner and supporter of the Second Amendment, but leaves a trail “common sense” anti-gun sellout articles across the web, including his article “Open Letter to Wayne LaPierre” ( http://tiny.cc/2rty6w ) where he wrote:

“It’s easy to disparage the 90 percent of Americans who are in favor of expanding background checks by telling your audience that some unnamed Congressman from some unnamed state hasn’t gotten any calls. But maybe the time has finally come when most Americans are more worried about ending the 100,000+ firearm deaths and injuries than whether you and your NRA cult of followers can Stand and Fight.”

Clearly mikethegunguy did not bother to check the facts that the 90% lie has been debunked over and over again and it takes real balls for some hack like Weisser to bad mouth Mr Lapierre who is a true leader and defender of the RKBA, unlike this turncoat.

Here he is Supporting the United Nations Small Arms Treaty, while once more trash talking the NRA , in his article “What Does That NRA Small-Arms Treaty Really Say?” ( http://tiny.cc/1euy6w ) :

“The NRA, the Washington Times, and all the other pro-gun stalwarts who make a living by ginning up the fears of gun owners every time that someone says anything even remotely connected to gun control might do us all a favor and stop concocting arguments out of whole cloth. I know, I know, Obama’s a liberal which means he hates guns and he’ll do anything to take them away. But maybe it’s time to stop worrying about Obama and start thinking about how to convince rational and reasonable people that responsible gun ownership is the American way.”

This is just one of multiple examples that can be found on the web of Mr Weisser providing cover to anti-gun, false-flag groups like “Evolve”, with a so-called “industry insider” in favor of reasonable gun control.

We want to make sure no one else in our fine industry gets taken in by this charlatan so we made a short list of known aliases and DBA’s:

60 Year Old Woman Shoots 2 of 7 ‘Knock Out’ Attackers

Beulah Montgonery

Beulah Montgomery, had just turned 60 the day before, when she was approached by 7 young punks playing Knock Out. One of them hit her and a second was attempting to hit her, so she reached for her gun. She fired 5 times and two of the young men fell down dead. One was hit in the stomach and one in the chest. The other five ran off after finding out their elderly victim was less than helpless. Montgomery had been mugged before and started carrying a gun for protection. The move paid off.

“All I could feel was pain and I said to myself I had made it to 60 and I wanted to at least see 61. Then I started praying and I asked the Lord to guide my hands.”

Beulah is a member of the neighborhood watch (uh oh, I can see an Al Sharpton moment coming on) and says that she always carries a gun now after being robbed once before:

”It’s a shame you can’t walk through your own neighborhood where you are supposed to feel safe without being assaulted and mistreated. I purchased the gun hoping I would never have to use it, but I’m glad to still be in the land of the living.”

Police have not yet charged Montgomery with anything, but she was detained and then released. Montgomery has no prior arrests.

In a related story out of Philadelphia, there were three knockout game attacks, including victims 61, and 80. All three victims were white and the attackers were black. Race may have played a part in the attacks.

Beulah is a member of the neighborhood watch!

Now look what happens when the victims, all white, are unarmed:


In this "Knock Out Game" you don't have to be white, but you do have to be other than black, and appeared unarmed and defenseless. Was Congresswoman Grace Meng The Latest Victim Of The Deadly “Knockout” Game?

Second wave of health plan cancellations looms

looms

A new and independent analysis of ObamaCare warns of a ticking time bomb, predicting a second wave of 50 million to 100 million insurance policy cancellations next fall -- right before the mid-term elections. 

The next round of cancellations and premium hikes is expected to hit employees, particularly of small businesses. While the administration has tried to downplay the cancellation notices hitting policyholders on the individual market by noting they represent a relatively small fraction of the population, the swath of people who will be affected by the shakeup in employer-sponsored coverage will be much broader.

Koch Brothers’ Group Uses Health Care Law to Attack Democrats

WASHINGTON — Americans for Prosperity, the political group backed by the billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch, is targeting three of the most vulnerable Senate Democrats who are up for re-election next year. The group’s efforts are part of a new $3.5 million attack advertising campaign that hammers lawmakers for supporting President Obama’s health care law.

The senators — Mark Begich of Alaska, Kay Hagan of North Carolina and Mary L. Landrieu of Louisiana — are all from conservative-leaning states that voted to elect Mitt Romney in 2012. The ads will start running in those states on Wednesday.

Americans for Prosperity is also targeting three Democratic members of the House who are in danger of losing next year: Ron Barber of Arizona, Joe Garcia of Florida and Patrick Murphy, also of Florida.

With the health care law’s flaws now front and center, Republicans and their allies have been trying to ratchet up the pressure on Democrats, especially where voters are most likely to respond negatively to the Affordable Care Act.

Tim Phillips, president of Americans for Prosperity, said that reminding voters about problems with the way the law had been carried out so far was part of a much larger strategy.

“We want to make sure Obamacare is the No. 1 issue they’re thinking about,” he said. “We believe repealing Obamacare is a long-term effort, and a key part of that effort is keeping it in front of the American people night and day.”

    (Reuters) - Oregon, a state that fully embraced the Affordable Care Act, is enduring one of the rockiest rollouts of President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law, with an inoperative online exchange that has yet to enroll a single subscriber, requiring thousands to apply on paper instead.

    Unlike most other states, Oregon set an ambitious course to make its insurance exchange, dubbed Cover Oregon, an "all-in-one" website for every individual seeking health coverage, including those who are eligible for Medicaid.

    But instead of serving as a national model, Oregon's experience has emerged as a cautionary tale, inviting comparisons to technical glitches that have plagued other state-run portals and the federal government's website for those states lacking exchanges of their own.

    Oregon's online exchange has remained inaccessible to the public, requiring the state to sign up applicants the old-fashioned way, using paper forms. This has made comparison shopping more difficult for consumers and severely slowed the enrollment process.

    Just when you think it can’t get worse, Obama does something even more treasonous. What scares the literal crap out of me is that no one seems to care.

    John Kerry announced on the 18th that the Monroe Doctrine was officially dead, throwing the doors open on this continent to Russia, China and Iran. This move will massively ramp up terrorist and communist infiltration. I look at the puzzle pieces of Obama’s moves lately and a very cold chill runs down my spine. From Chinese troops in Hawaii for the Grid X II drill, to the purging of our military. From Amnesty for millions and the dissolution of our borders, to China’s growing investments in Venezuela, Colombia, Peru and Chile, and in its bailouts of Venezuelan and Argentinian debt. From Russia’s increased military sales to terrorist/communist countries such as Venezuela and their quasi-military bases being stepped up in Nicaragua and Cuba, to Iran bankrolling Hezbollah cells across the hemisphere, shipping people and materiel to Venezuela and laundering cash in Ecuador, while forging alliances wherever they can. Does anyone else see the preparations taking place here? Will anyone resist or will America succumb without the slightest push back?

    Investor’s Business Daily said it just right:

    Diplomacy: Secretary of State John Kerry just scrapped 190 years of U.S. foreign policy in Latin America, casually declaring the Monroe Doctrine is over.Why didn’t he just ring the dinner triangle for Russia, China, Iran and their terrorist catspaws to set up shop, too?

    “President James Monroe,” Kerry told the Organization of American States in Washington Monday, “declared that the United States would unilaterally, and as a matter of fact, act as the protector of the region… And throughout our nation’s history, successive presidents have reinforced that doctrine and made a similar choice.

    “Today, however, we have made a different choice. The era of the Monroe Doctrine is over,” he declared.

    So, with the flip of a rubber-chicken dinner, thus ends the oldest, steadiest and most benign pillar in all U.S. foreign policy, the 1823 “Don’t Tread On Us” policy that Old World powers were not to bring their feuds and battles to the Western Hemisphere, nor to meddle in the affairs of Latin America’s fledgling democracies, most of which had just gained independence from Spain and Portugal and needed to develop in peace.

    It was a good policy. Latin America’s great liberators, such as Simon Bolivar who freed Venezuela, Colombia and Ecuador, and Jose San Martin, who freed Argentina, Chile and Peru, both embraced the U.S. with “extreme gratitude.”

    And because of that doctrine, Latin America has been involved in very few wars other than civil wars during its short history.

    It was a doctrine that reflected that the U.S.’s oldest and most important foreign interests were in its own hemisphere, something that ought to be of comfort to a region that often feels neglected by the U.S.

    But instead of defending that two-century-old doctrine, Kerry has decided to scrap it — not just because he doesn’t care about the region, but because he apparently believes the idea pushed by Spanish Civil War leftist exiles and by the likes of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro that the Monroe Doctrine was an evil thing, U.S. imperialism in disguise.

    Obviously, by declaring the Monroe Doctrine over in the name of every nation being “equals” now, he is attempting to claim that the Obama administration is atoning somehow for its past.

    Well, this should embolden all of our enemies and it will be cold comfort for Trevor Loudon and me to tell you we told you so. Over and over again we have warned America of the communist threat that is alive and well on our own soil and within our own government. We have warned that our enemies are plotting to overthrow us and that our own leaders are communists or proxies for communist governments. I know it is tempting to want to turn from evil and not confront it. We all have families and jobs and just want to lead our lives. But just because you want the bad guys to go away, does not mean they will not come knocking and they are here — now. Enemies from within and without are now making their move — America, please face this threat or we will not survive as individuals, much less as a Republic.

    Kerry is a moron and a tool of the Marxists. But Obama is another matter. There are those who control him, but he knows full well what is transpiring. He planned it.

    Here’s another revealing quote from The Weekly Standard:

    Just when you were getting used to U.S. withdrawal from the Middle East, here comes our formal withdrawal from the Western Hemisphere.

    [...]

    Ah, ha! So that explains why the Obama administration pays little attention to Latin America. Why Iran and Hezbollah are permitted to run amok from Argentina to Mexico, why Latin drug cartels are allowed to make common cause with anti-U.S. Islamist groups in North Africa and the Middle East.

    Next thing you know, the Iranians or the North Koreans or maybe even the Russians will give Fidel those missiles he’s always wanted and the whole world will truly be that partnership of equal vulnerability Obama and Kerry so cherish.

    Indeed. Vulnerability on a scale we have never seen in this country, brought to you by the Obama Administration and the Progressives. When I say that, I mean on both sides of the aisle. Plenty of blame and tar and feathers to go around on this. When Kerry made the statement, the communists in South America were jubilant.

    In the name of equality, Obama and Kerry will usher in war, death and conquest:

    Kerry seemed to agree Monday, saying: “Many years ago the United States dictated a policy that defined the hemisphere for many years after. We’ve moved past that era, and today we must go even further.”

    “The question is will we work as equal partners in order to achieve our goals?” Kerry asked. “It will require courage and a willingness to change, but above all, it will require a higher and deeper level of cooperation between us, all of us together as equal partners in this hemisphere.”

    Obama, the Light Bringer, will usher in true communism and horrific bloodshed. In the name of peace, he will bring slaughter and darkness. Sound apocalyptic and straight out of Revelations to you? Me too, as I listen to Obama ring the dinner bell for Russia, China and Iran. America is the main course and it will be a feast for the communists.

    Tyrannosaurus rex: Scavenger or Predator?

    Tyrannosaurus rex looms in recent history as likely the most famous dinosaur that ever lived. The Jurassic Park movies pumped new life into its image as a savage predator. But how much of this is Hollywood hype and how much reflects science?

    Looking at the numbers, an adult T. rex weighed in at over five tons. If it were endothermic (i.e., warm-blooded), it would need to eat the equivalent of a full-grown, three-ton hadrosaur each week. If it were ectothermic (i.e., cold-blooded), it would only require a fifth to a tenth as much sustenance. Research on the eating habits and predatory patterns of T. rex lends some interesting results.

    Studies of bite mechanics support the notion that T. rex was truly the “king of dinosaurs.” Scientists in England used dynamic musculoskeletal models to simulate its bite strength and found it nearly doubled that of an equivalent-size alligator.1 Such strength explains the numerous teeth marks imprinted on dinosaur fossils and found to match T. rex’s unique, D-shape teeth. Gouges from large carnivore teeth were even identified on a T. rex toe bone, implicating possible cannibalism.2 The question is, what was this great strength used for—scavenging, predation, or both?

    Paleontologist John R. Horner thinks T. rex was exclusively a scavenger, surmising it was slow in speed and pointing to its massive olfactory lobe that likely enabled it to smell carcasses from afar. However, healed wounds, caused by an animal the size of T. rex and found on Triceratops and Edmontosaurus dinosaur skeletons, indicate these creatures survived predatory attack.3 Most recently, scientists reported finding the tip of a T. rex tooth embedded in the backbone of a duck-billed dinosaur.4 The backbone had healed around the tooth, demonstrating survival after the failed attack. Such evidence aligns with conclusions by some paleontologists that there weren’t enough carcasses available for T. rex to subsist only by scavenging.5 Finally, contrary to perceptions of these creatures as “slow,” they were certainly fast enough to catch their dinner. A study using biomechanical models determined an adult T. rex could run about 18 miles per hour—fast enough to capture prey.6 These findings imply that T. rex probably ate whatever it came across—as an opportunist, and not just a scavenger.

    Regardless of its bite strength and teeth, in God’s original creation even T. rex was a vegetarian, like all other animals.7 It wasn’t until after the sin of man and the Curse that T. rex became a meat-eater—Genesis 3:14 extends the Curse to every beast, which included dinosaurs. With those massive teeth, it’s still a mystery as to exactly what type of vegetation T. rex ate.

    Recently, scientists documented fruit and plant consumption in 13 of the 18 species of crocodilians, classifying them as “generalist predators that complement an otherwise carnivorous diet with fruit.”8 In the same way, fruit and plants probably served as supplements to the mighty T. rex after the Curse. In fact, according to Genesis 6:21, the Ark stored a wide variety of plants, grains, and nuts for the year-long journey during the Flood. Preservation of each species would have required animals on the Ark to survive exclusively on a vegetarian diet.

    Although discoveries of some predators consuming plants may surprise evolutionary scientists, creationists expect them. Tyrannosaurus rex may have had the strongest bite and the biggest teeth of any dinosaur, but it once survived on a diet of plants alone. In spite of its reputation as a violent aggressor, T. rex actually reveals God’s creativity in its anatomy and the diversity of its eating habits, which allowed for survival in a variety of conditions.

    The Guy who Reversed Stage IV Prostate Cancer with Baking Soda and Molasses
    by Paul Fassa October 2nd, 2013

    Could you use something as simple as baking powder or baking soda to treat cancer? One man, Vernon Johnston, used baking soda and molasses as the driving force to recover from aggressive stage 4 prostate cancer, which had even metastasized into his bone matter. As far as the medical establishment is concerned, you should never hear about this story. His Brother’s Advice

    After Vernon was diagnosed, Vernon’s brother Larry told him to work on raising his pH since cancer cannot thrive in a high or alkaline pH. Larry recommended cesium chloride to raise Vernon’s pH levels into a high alkaline level physiologically.

    Vernon did not undergo any harmful orthodox treatments after he was diagnosed. That meant his alternative therapy would be more effective. He optimistically ordered the cesium chloride, but it got lost in the mail. So he frantically looked for another source of raising his pH level into the alkaline range.

    That’s when he discovered the remedy of baking powder or bicarbonate of soda with maple syrup. Not having maple syrup in his kitchen, he decided to use the molasses that was handy. He was anxious to kill the cancer before it killed him. ... Continued here.

    WASHINGTON –- Several prominent media sources in Egypt are now reporting that Egyptian lawyers have filed criminal terrorism charges in the International Criminal Court against President Obama in addition to the criminal terrorism charges previously filed in Egyptian courts against the president’s half-brother Malik Obama.

    Malik Obama is quickly becoming a person of interest in Egypt for his alleged management of funds for a terrorist organization based in neighboring Sudan. A group of Egyptian lawyers, meanwhile have charged President Obama with crimes against humanity for his support of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

    The charges come as the criminal trial against former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi is scheduled to begin in Egypt in January 2014. Morsi facing charges that he supported the Muslim Brotherhood in acts of violence directed against the Egyptian people.

    President Obama is likely to be a subject in Morsi’s criminal trial because of evidence the Obama administration used the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to provide direct financial support to key Muslim Brotherhood political operatives, with the full knowledge and complicity of the Morsi government, as WND was first to report in August.

    Criminal complaints filed at ICC

    The Egyptian newspaper El Watan has reported a group of Egyptian lawyers has submitted a complaint to the International Criminal Court in The Hague, charging Obama with backing the group that incited widespread violence in Egypt both before and after what is known in Egypt as the “June 30 Revolution.” The Egyptian army coup d’état removed Morsi from the presidency July 3.

    As first reported by CBN News, the complaint names several top-ranking Muslim Brotherhood leaders, beginning with the head of the organization, Muhammad Badie, as well as Mohamed al-Beltagy, Essam al-Erian and Safwat Hegazi.

    The complaint charges that Obama coordinated, incited and assisted the armed elements of the Muslim Brotherhood in the commission of crimes against humanity in the period from March 7 through Aug. 18 in Egypt.

    The complaint specifies the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt persecuted the country’s Christian minority, including the torching, destruction and plundering of some 85 Christian churches. The regime also scapegoated the Christian Copts in Egypt for their support of the June 30 Revolution and the removal of Morsi from the presidency, the complaint asserts.

    The complaint alleges Muslim Brotherhood incitement against the Copts resulted in the murder of a 10-year-old girl who was shot and killed as she walked back from Bible class, the murder of a young Coptic priest who was shot in front of his church in the Egyptian Sinai with his body found mutilated and beheaded, and the murder of two girls, aged 8 and 12, who were riddled with bullets as they attended a Christian church wedding.

    The complaint further alleges that since the Muslim Brotherhood denounced the Copts, entire towns and villages have been emptied of Christians. More than 100 Christian families, for example, have been driven from the North Sinai city of El Arish.

    Muslim Brotherhood supporters are accused of extorting Copts by making them pay tribute money to Islamic overlords, while those unwilling to pay were attacked, with their wives and children being beaten or kidnapped.

    In a YouTube video, CBN News contributor Raymond Ibrahim reported from Egypt details of alleged atrocities committed by Muslim Brotherhood members against Christians in Egypt.

    Criminal complaints against Malik Obama

    Former PLO member and native Arabic-speaker Walid Shoebat reported on his website that Youm7 television in Egypt has now confirmed Ahmed Nabil Ganzory – in his capacity as a lawyer and agent for Sadik Rauf Ebeid, a physician residing in the United States and an officer in the Egyptian Air Force – filed a criminal complaint against Malik Obama with Egyptian Attorney General Hisham Barakat.

    WND reported in September that the complaint called for Malik Obama to be placed on Egypt’s terror watch list because of his involvement as an owner and investment adviser for the Sudan-based Islamic Dawa Organization, or IDO, and the organization’s umbrella group, the Muslim Brotherhood.

    The following is a direct translation from Youm7:

    Dr. Ahmed Nabil Ganzory, in his capacity as lawyer and agent for Dr. Sadik Rauf Ebeid, and resident in the United States of America, filed a complaint with Egypt’s Attorney General Hisham Barakat, against Malik Obama, accusing him of supporting terrorism in Egypt and for his involvement in managing the Islamic Da’wa Organization (IDO). The complaint also asks to include Chancellor Tahani Al-Gebali to substantiate claims against Obama. …
    Complaint No. 1761 for the year 2013 reported to the Attorney General asked the Egyptian High Court to consider the suspicious activity of a group called the Islamic Da’wa Organization (IDO), which is owned and managed by Malik Obama. This group is now being investigated by international bodies and the attached evidence proves beyond a reasonable doubt that a close link exists between Malik Obama and some of the most notorious characters already wanted for their involvement in terrorism, as is consistent with the pictures and reports attached. …
    The complaint also asks the court to bring in Malik Obama – a resident of the United States – to be questioned in regards to the terrorist groups in Egypt, whether by inciting or participating with or in any form of support punishable by law. It seeks permission to declare Obama a defendant in his right outside Egypt diplomatically, through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In the case of non-appearance and compliance for the investigation, the complainant requests monitoring [Mr. Obama] by including his name on all Egyptian airports and ports, and take the necessary legal steps. [emphasis placed by Walid Shoebat]

    In August, WND reported Tahani Al-Gebali, chancellor of the Constitutional Court of Egypt, substantiated the claims made against Malik Obama. On a television news programs in Egypt, al-Gebali asked the court to bring Malik Obama to Egypt for questioning as “one of the architects” of investments made by the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Ganzory, the attorney who filed the criminal complaint against Malik Obama, was identified in a recent interview on El-Balad TV in Egypt as an Egyptian constitutional law expert.

    In the interview, Ganzory claimed he has “what it takes to convict Obama’s brother in financing terrorism.”

    “Malik Obama will be brought to face justice in Egypt if and when these charges are proven,” he said.

    In an email to WND, Dr. Sadek Raouf Ebeid, the U.S. resident who brought the criminal complaint in Egypt against Malik Obama, explained an attempt to serve the complaint to Malik in Kenya failed because he was not in the country at the time.

    Ebeid further explained his attorney, Ganzory, is currently preparing to serve the complaint to Malik in the U.S.

    Arguing that President Obama is complicit in advancing the activities of his half-brother, Ebeid said evidence WND has published suggests Malik Obama received unprecedented assistance from the White House through retroactive approval of tax-exempt status for the Barack H. Obama

    Lawmakers Push to Impeach Disgraced Attorney General Holder
    Written by Alex Newman

    After having already been held in criminal contempt of Congress for an ongoing cover-up of the Obama administration’s deadly “Fast and Furious” gun-running program, disgraced Attorney General Eric Holder is facing a fresh challenge: an effort by some GOP lawmakers to impeach him before the end of the year. According to media reports, the bid to force Holder out of power, if successful, would represent the second impeachment of a cabinet member in American history. Meanwhile, the movement to impeach Obama himself is growing stronger by the day as well — both in Congress and among everyday Americans. 

    News that a group of Republicans was finally planning to do something about Holder’s lawlessness and defiance was first unveiled during a town-hall meeting by Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.), a liberty-minded freshman in Congress who worked as a veterinarian before taking office. “It’s to get him out of office — impeachment,” Yoho was quoted as saying about the plan in local newspapers, which reported that the audience also applauded the lawmaker’s positions on a number of other issues such as opposition to ObamaCare and the wild federal deficit.

    A formal resolution to impeach Holder is already being drawn up, sources on Capitol Hill said. “It will probably be when we get back in [Washington],” Yoho continued during the town-hall session with constituents in the town of Chiefland. “It will be before the end of the year. This will go to the speaker and the speaker will decide if it comes up or not.” While it was not immediately clear which other lawmakers were behind the effort, the list of outraged lawmakers is vast. By July, over 135 congressmen had co-sponsored a resolution calling on Holder to resign immediately. Public fury continues to grow, too.

    Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), who introduced the no-confidence resolution, summarized a few of the reasons in a speech on the House floor. “Mr. Holder’s violations of the law are egregious and he should not be immune from the prosecution or given license to act without restraint,” Gosar explained. “An ordinary citizen would go to jail for selling guns to Mexican drug cartels. An ordinary citizen would go to jail for secretly obtaining phone records and emails. An ordinary citizen would go to jail for lying to Congress about an investigation. What would happen to an ordinary citizen for lying to a judge? This is just a small part of what Attorney General Eric Holder is responsible for.”

    According to Rep. Yoho's chief of staff, Cat Cammack, the Florida Republican and his colleagues are pursuing impeachment because of a variety of scandals — primarily the administration’s “Fast and Furious” scheme to arm Mexican drug lords, which left hundreds dead, including U.S. law enforcement officers. “Obviously there is a lot of frustration with our attorney general,” Cammack said. “You can name the botched programs. Fast and Furious has been one of the number one complaints we get in our office, and why no one has been held accountable.”

    So far, Holder has managed to escape prosecution after being held in contempt only because the Justice Department he leads refuses to prosecute its boss. However, without a pardon from Obama, more than a few legal experts and activists have said the disgraced official could eventually end up behind bars. If House Republicans are to succeed in impeaching Holder by the end of the year, however, they are going to have to act quickly. According to news reports, there are only 16 legislative days scheduled for the remainder of 2013.

    A lot will depend on House Speaker John Boehner, too, who has remained silent on the matter thus far. Despite occasional conservative rhetoric, the top Republican in Washington has come under heavy fire from grassroots leaders for continually selling out, caving in, and protecting the Obama administration from accountability. The most recent example came just last month, when Rep. Boehner capitulated completely to the president’s extortion tactics by agreeing to fund ObamaCare — even though polls showed a majority of Americans supported partially shutting down the government until the healthcare takeover was defunded.

    Holder “should be immediately impeached,” noted the Capitalism Institute, citing Fast and Furious, the targeting of journalists who challenge Obama, and the fact that the attorney general has “constantly trampled” on the Constitution. One of the biggest challenges, though, will be getting it past Speaker Boehner. “We’ve constantly said that John Boehner has to go, and this is a good example of why that’s still the case,” continued the popular market-oriented group. “Boehner is in a position where he can pretend to fight Obama most of the time — but defend him whenever it actually counts.”

    While public pressure to oust the disgraced Justice Department boss has been escalating for years, successfully impeaching Holder would be historic. In more than two centuries of American history, only one U.S. cabinet-level official has been impeached: Secretary of War William Belknap in the Ulysses S. Grant administration. In 1876, after Belknap was accused of receiving bribes, the House voted to impeach him. The vote took place despite the fact that the war secretary had resigned earlier the same day. After Belknap's impeachment, the Senate tried him, but he was acquitted when the vote to convict fell short of the required two-thirds majority.

    Led mostly by Republican congressmen, the effort to hold Obama’s attorney general accountable has been building up for years. Even before he took office, scandal had long been swirling around Holder, who was caught on video proposing a tax-funded propaganda program to “brainwash,” in his words, the American public against gun rights. He also played a key role in securing presidential pardons for billionaire fugitive Marc Rich and Marxist terrorists with the Obama-linked Weather Underground. Immediately upon his assuming control of the Justice Department, new controversies began blowing up, and a seemingly never-ending series of increasingly serious scandals have plagued his controversial tenure ever since.

    The turning point for members of Congress on both sides of the aisle, however, appears to have come when Holder unlawfully defied a congressional subpoena ordering him to hand over documents on Fast and Furious. That federal program, which is still often characterized inaccurately in the establishment press as a “botched” investigation, put thousands of high-powered American weapons in the hands of Mexican drug cartels. Holder and his underlings were also caught lying about the scheme repeatedly in congressional hearings — while under oath, potentially committing perjury — and in letters to lawmakers.

    Official documents later revealed that the supposed “drug lords” being “investigated” were already on the FBI’s payroll. Government records also emerged showing that the administration was plotting to use the Fast and Furious violence to intensify its attack on the unalienable right to keep and bear arms guaranteed under the Second Amendment. Eventually, with public outrage boiling over and U.S. law enforcement officers murdered with some of the weapons in question, House Republicans and even some Democrats decided to hold the attorney general in criminal contempt of Congress last summer. The offense should land the perpetrator behind bars.    

    Despite becoming the first attorney general in U.S. history to hold the dubious honor, Holder has been clinging to power with the president’s support, and even stepping up the lawlessness. Incredibly, earlier this year, the Justice Department he leads was exposed arguing that Obama has the authority to kill Americans without even a semblance of due process. He has also been unlawfully bullying state governments on everything from guns to voter ID. According to the non-partisan group Judicial Watch, Holder is actually among the most corrupt officials in Washington, D.C. — and there were, of course, plenty to choose from.   

    More recently, even the administration’s traditional allies in the establishment media were outraged to learn that the attorney general had approved unconstitutional spying against Associated Press journalists. “There can be no possible justification for such an overbroad collection of the telephone communications of The Associated Press and its reporters,” noted AP President Gary Pruitt. In an affidavit indicting a federal employee for talking to reporters, meanwhile, Holder’s out-of-control Justice Department claimed a Fox News journalist was a “co-conspirator” in the case — potentially setting him up for prosecution merely for doing his constitutionally protected job. 

    While impeaching Holder has taken center stage for the moment, the push to impeach Obama is accelerating, too. From highway overpasses to the halls of Congress, countless activists and over a dozen U.S. lawmakers are turning up the heat, having become convinced that ousting the president may be the only remaining option to stop the reign of lawlessness and the never-ending parade of constitutional abuses. Numerous impeachable offenses have been cited by lawmakers and legal experts.  

    Recent polls suggested that about half of Americans would support impeachment for some of the most extreme scandals — Benghazi, spying on journalists, and using the IRS to persecute conservatives. Meanwhile, the new book Impeachable Offenses: The Case for Removing Barack Obama From Office is being distributed on Capitol Hill by Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas). Some lawmakers have said publicly that there are probably enough votes in the House to impeach Obama already. Whether the president or his attorney general is removed from power, though, still depends on how much more the American people are willing to tolerate.

    Veterans Day Monday November 11, 2013 update

    The below video is more important than the celebrations going on today, the msuci goes away in 5 or 6 minutes, it is worth the wait.

    Why haven't Maine's Congressional delegation, Senators King and Collins, Representatives Pingree and Michaud demanded a full investigation of this. How is it that individuals, not associated with the g0vt or the media can find more facts than Congress or the media, the police or the PARENTS?

    This may help you understand how obama won a second term.

    Anti-gay white Republican wins election in inner city Houston after PRETENDING to be African-American in campaign flyers

    By Daily Mail Reporter

    The surprise winner of a Texas election has been criticized for misleading the mainly black constituents into believing he was African American.

    Dave Wilson, a white Republican and anti-gay activist, beat Houston's 24-year incumbent Bruce Austin in what has been described as a 'racially tinged campaign'.

    Mr Wilson won with a margin of 26 after he campaigned using flyers featuring African Americans and the message 'Vote for our neighbor Dave Wilson'.

    Misleading? Wilson's opposition in the predominately black constituency claimed the businessman implied he was African American

    Misleading? Wilson's opposition in the predominately black constituency claimed the businessman implied he was African American

    'I'd always said it was a long shot. I didn't expect to win,' the former fringe candidate told KHOU.

    His flyers, designed using pictures he had found on the internet, also claimed he had been endorsed by Ron Wilson for the Houston community college seat.

     

    More...

    Many in the area could have been led to believe the endorsement was from the former African-American state representative but the small print stated the Ron Wilson in question was the candidate's cousin.

    'He's a nice cousin,' Mr Wilson told KHOU as he held back a laugh. 'We played baseball in high school together. And he's endorsed me.'

    Family ties: Wilson's flyers said he was endorsed by Ron Wilson but the small print revealed this was his cousin and not the former state representative

    Political scientists have said it is unlikely that Mr Wilson's flyers would have had much impact on his campaign, but the Democrat he unseated was not impressed.

    'I don't think it's good for both democracy and the whole concept of fair play. But that was not his intent, apparently,' Mr Austin said.

    He tried to counter the campaign by releasing flyers showing Mr Wilson and labeling him a 'right-wing hate-monger'.

    Mr Austin said he intends to call for a recount but analysts believe Mr Wilson's victory will be upheld, putting him in office for six years.

    Ron Wilson

    Protest: Bruce Austin, left, who lost his seat to Wilson claims voters were misled by the flyers. One claimed he was endorsed by Ron Wilson, which some may have taken to mean the former state representative, right

    Bob Stein, political scientist at Rice University, said however that the community college system covered by the election had come under intense scrutiny for insider deals and overseas spending.

    He added that after 24 years in office, Mr Austin's name should have been familiar to voters too.

    'I suspect it's more than just race. The Houston Community College was under some criticism for bad performance. And others on the board also had very serious challenges,' he said.

    In some balck inner city areas obama won 99% of the vote, in others 100% of the vote.
    Netanyahu: 'This Is a Bad Deal--a Very, Very Bad Deal'
    7:51 AM, Nov 8, 2013 • By DANIEL HALPER

    A very unusual statement from the Israel prime minister on the eve of a possible nuclear detail between the U.S. and Iran:

    "I met Secretary Kerry right before he leaves to Geneva," said Netanyhau. "I reminded him that he said that no deal is better than a bad deal. That the deal that is being discussed in Geneva right now is a bad deal. It’s a very bad deal. Iran is not required to take apart even one centrifuge. But the international community is relieving sanctions on Iran for the first time after many years. Iran gets everything that it wanted at this stage and it pays nothing. And this is when Iran is under severe pressure. I urge Secretary Kerry not to rush to sign, to wait, to reconsider, to get a good deal. But this is a bad deal--a very, very bad deal. It’s the deal of a century for Iran; it’s a very dangerous and bad deal for peace and the international community."

    Robert Zarate of the Foreign Policy Initiative explains how the proposed deal is full of concessions toward Iran:

    The potential package of Iranian concessions could reportedly include:

    Some call them the Federal Bureau of Incompetnce, this may be why

    The FBI is offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the return of 2 rifles that were, as O’Ryan Johnson of the Boston Herald reports, “stolen from an FBI SWAT emergency response vehicle.”

    The weapons were an M-16 and a "sniper rifle" in .308 caliber.  The kind of scary looking guns that we are told must be kept out of the hands of irresponsible civilians and entrusted only to wise, trained professionals.

    The FBI’s "SWAT emergency response vehicle,” was in Andover, Massachusetts when the guns were pinched.  The town is known, chiefly, as the site of an expensive and prestigious prep school and one does wonder why the FBI needed that kind of firepower to go in there.  

    One also wonders if you will be read your Miranda rights before or after you get the twenty grand.

    But then again why would we expect integrity, honesty, justice, or anything positive from a police force that works for obama the spendthrift?

    One more reason to homeschool
    Planned Parenthood wants preschoolers to know mechanics of sexual intercourseby Rita Diller Planned Parenthood Federation of America has just announced a new insidious Internet presence referred to as “mobile interactive tools to help teens make healthy decisions.”

    STOPP’s national director, Rita Diller, joined ALL’s Jim Sedlak on his Radio Maria “Armed for Battle” broadcast November 1 to warn about what lurks within the many webpages of this new “tool” for indoctrinating both children and parents.

    “By ‘mobile interactive tools,’ Planned Parenthood means it is on its website so that kids can access this stuff from their smart phones or their computers when their parents aren’t looking,” Diller said. “And by ‘helping teens make healthy decisions,’ that’s Planned Parenthood speak for teaching kids to use condoms and birth control to avoid pregnancy at all cost, while having lots of fun with sex.”

    “And while Planned Parenthood says that the ‘tools’ are focused on teens—which many of them are—much of it addresses younger children—elementary and even preschool,” she continued. “And what I found when I started looking through the website was absolutely shocking, even by Planned Parenthood’s standards.”

    On the Tools for Parents page of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America website are specific answers to questions that Planned Parenthood says preschoolers ask about sex.

    It is here that Planned Parenthood coaches parents on exactly how to respond to preschoolers whom they say are asking questions about sex.

    Plannedparenthood.org advises parents that when a preschooler asks, “How do babies get in your tummy?” that parents answer in graphic detail, naming the anatomical parts of the body involved and the mechanics of sexual intercourse.

    PPFA then suggests to parents that they respond to a little boy who asks why his private body parts are different from his mother’s by describing his outer genitalia and hers using anatomical names.

    “This is some horrifying stuff,” Diller said. “These are preschoolers. This is the sex education Planned Parenthood wants them to have—is fighting for them to have.”

    Jim Sedlak followed up with the scientific facts about how early sex education harms children by disturbing their sexual latency period or, as the Church says, violating the age of innocence.

    The broadcast of the entire interview is online at http://radiomaria.us/armedforbattle/.

    The Planned Parenthood website also features videos of very young children who were obviously coached to ask a series of questions that were well beyond what children their age would be thinking about normally or even aware of for the most part—even involving a little bitty girl shouting out really inappropriate questions. This little girl is three or four years old. And Planned Parenthood continues to exploit her.

    As usual, Planned Parenthood gives terrible advice about how to answer children’s questions, making parents look like babbling idiots—except when they answer a young teen girl asking for birth control with “No, No, No, No, No!” This is the right answer, after all, and should be expanded on, but according to Planned Parenthood it is a babbling idiot answer.

    All of this takes us to the heart of Planned Parenthood’s sex education philosophy.

    The theme that runs throughout PP sex ed—the message kids are getting loud and clear—is that babies are the enemy—something that falls out of the sky and ruins everything. This was the explanation given by ex-atheist turned Catholic, Jennifer Fulwiler, in a National Catholic Register blog post based on what she learned in sex education and from society.

    Students come to understand, through their indoctrination, that sex is a right for all and is green-lighted as long as the young people protect themselves against the two enemies of sex—STDs and babies.

    This kind of sex indoctrination leads directly to the abortion mill for young people who are bombarded with this message from their earliest years. According to Fulwiler, because of years of indoctrination in Planned Parenthood-style sex education, she and her friends would have done anything to get rid of an unplanned baby—deprived as they were of the beautiful teaching of the Catholic Church on the truth and meaning of human sexuality.

    This culture must be converted. But it won’t be converted until we stop government-funded, Planned Parenthood-sanctioned, so-called “comprehensive, evidence-based” sex education.

    Stopping Planned Parenthood sex education is a very doable task. Parents have been successful on many fronts in rooting it out of the schools.

    (LiveActionNews) - In October, CBS put the “5 Most Pivotal Episodes” of The Good Wife* on its website, in anticipation of an explosive episode that aired on October 27.

    One of these episodes, called “Heart,” (from Season 1) powerfully illustrates the hypocrisy of abortion. In “Heart,” Will Gardner and Alicia Florrick are fighting to make an insurance company pay for an in utero surgery** for their clients’ unborn son. He has been diagnosed with HLHS – hypoplastic left heart syndrome.

    HLHS is a serious heart defect that involves several parts of the left side of the heart. In this condition, the heart’s lower left pumping chamber and the large artery that carries blood to the body are too small to support normal blood flow. In basic terms it means that the whole left side of the heart does not develop normally. 

    In “Heart,” Will and Alicia’s clients have been told that their son will have a much better chance at living if he has an in-utero surgery to correct his heart defect. But they must act now. Their son could die at any time.

    Arguing before a judge, Will says, “My client’s baby could be dead.” But the opposing counsel quickly interjects with, “Objection! Your client’s fetus.” It’s clear this other attorney is disgusted with the thought of calling an unborn child a “baby.” However, the judge seems disgusted with his objection, replying, “Well thank you, Mr. Harper. I’m sure we’ll all feel much better with that distinction.”

    Later, Will questions a representative of the insurance company on the witness stand:

    Will: As soon as Kate has the baby you’ll pay for the surgery?
    Rep: Yes, that’s correct
    Will: It’s covered, for a baby that’s born?
    Rep: Right.

    Next, Will shows what appears to be the famous photo of Samuel Arnas grasping his doctor’s hand during in utero surgery.
    The photo shown on The Good Wife (Photo credit: Michael Clancy)

    Will: In utero surgery for spina bifida at 23 weeks. So as far as Life State’s [the insurance company] concerned, THIS isn’t a baby. This isn’t someone who qualifies for surgery. This according to your denial letter is a ‘pregnancy complication’ not covered. Is that correct?
    Rep: Unfortunately, that’s right.

    But The Good Wife still wasn’t finished with the photo of little Samuel Arnas – or with its demonstration of the current hypocrisy in American law and medicine concerning the unborn child.

    The insurance company’s lawyer puts Kate, the mom who was fighting for her unborn son to have a chance, on the stand.

    Lawyer: To save a life. That’s right. Because this is a life were talking about.
    Kate nods.  Next, the lawyer talks about how Kate had spent the last five years lobbying for abortion rights.
    Lawyer: You spent years fighting to ensure that a fetus at this stage [holds up photo of Samuel Arnas] could be aborted legally.
    Kate: Fighting to ensure that there was a choice.
    Lawyer: And now that you’re the one with a fetus at 23 weeks, you argue that it should be considered a baby. In fact, it is a life worth saving. In fact, your baby deserves the most cutting-edge extreme life-saving measures possible.
    Kate: Yes [crying]. This is my child. Of course, he deserves anything.
    Lawyer: And you can live with that hypocrisy?

    Here is the story of one baby who had in utero surgery for HLHS:

    *The Good Wife is a legal and political drama in its fifth season on CBS. The show illustrates many moral dilemmas and does contain objectionable content.

    **To read more about in utero surgery for HLHS, read about the team at Texas Children’s Fetal Center. Advances are continually being made in in utero medicine, so know that you can look into the possibility of in utero surgery if you are pregnant with a child who has been diagnosed with a defect.

    10 surprising quotes from abortionists by Lauren Enriquez January 8, 2012 (LiveActionNews.org) - They’re threatened by informed consent. They’re traumatized by the limp body parts they look at every day. They’re torn by the contradiction that they became doctors to preserve life but use their profession to end it. Here are some eye-opening confessions from current and former abortionists.

    1. They [the women] are never allowed to look at the ultrasound because we knew that if they so much as heard the heart beat, they wouldn’t want to have an abortion. –Dr. Randall, former abortionist

    2. Even now I feel a little peculiar about it, because as a physician I was trained to conserve life, and here I am destroying it. -Dr. Benjamin Kalish, abortionist

    3. You have to become a bit schizophrenic. In one room, you encourage the patient that the slight irregularity in the fetal heart is not important, that she is going to have a fine, healthy baby. Then, in the next room you assure another woman, on whom you just did a saline abortion, that it is a good thing that the heartbeat is already irregular… she has nothing to worry about, she will NOT have a live baby… All of a sudden one noticed that at the time of the saline infusion there was a lot of activity in the uterus. That’s not fluid currents. That’s obviously the fetus being distressed by swallowing the concentrated salt solution and kicking violently and that’s to all intents and purposes, the death trauma… somebody has to do it, and unfortunately we are the executioners in this instance[.] -Dr. John Szenes, abortionist

    4. Telling those women their fetuses feel pain is heaping torment upon torment. These women have real pain. They did not come to this decision easily. Creating another barrier for them to get the medical care they need is really unfair. – Abortionist Dave Turok

    5. This is why I hate overuse of forceps – things tear. There are only two kinds of doctors who have never perforated a uterus, those that lie and those who don’t do abortions. – Anonymous Abortionist

    6. I got to where I couldn’t stand to look at the little bodies anymore. - Dr. Beverly McMillan, former abortionist

    7. I think in many ways I’ve been lucky to have been part of this. If I hadn’t gotten involved, I would have gone through life probably being perfectly satisfied to go to the medical society parties and it would have been very, very dull. I would have been bored silly. - Dr. Jane Hodgson, late abortionist

    8. Sorrow, quite apart from the sense of shame, is exhibited in some way by virtually every woman for whom I performed an abortion, and that’s 20,000 as of 1995. The sorrow is revealed by the fact that most women cry at some point during the experience… The grieving process may last from several days to several years… Grief is sometimes delayed… The grief may lie sublimated and dormant for years. - Dr. Susan Poppema, abortionist

    9. If I see a case…after twenty weeks, where it frankly is a child to me, I really agonize over it because the potential is so imminently there…On the other hand, I have another position, which I think is superior in the hierarchy of questions, and that is “who owns this child?” It’s got to be the mother. - Dr. James McMahon, abortionist

    10. We know that it’s killing, but the state permits killing under certain circumstances. - Dr. Neville Sender, abortionist

    And the Police make three more enemies:
    Police stun stepdad trying to save son from fire

    ST. LOUIS (AP) — The family of a 3-year-old killed in a northern Missouri house fire says it is outraged after police used a stun gun on the boy's stepfather as he tried to run back in and save the child. Riley Miller died early Oct. 31 in the Mississippi River town of Louisiana. A city police officer fired his stun gun at Ryan Miller, Riley's stepfather, as he tried to re-enter his burning home, which was destroyed.

    Lori Miller, Ruiley's grandmother says she witnessed two officers using their stun guns three times, twice after Ryan Miller had been handcuffed.

    Miller suffered chest burns and was later released from the city jail without being charged. The family says it is considering legal action against the city. City Administrator Bob Jenne called the police response a "judgment call."
    Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

    In a crazy effort to make Michael Michaud look a little less of the fool, Maines two senators Angus, the really I'm not a democrat, King and Susan, see, I'm not queer, I'm a married woman now, Collins, voted, once again against what is right and voted the pro-radical-homosexual line. A bill to prohibit employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.

    Michaud declares himself to be a homosexual.

    In a desperate attempt to take liberal, progressive, and other communist support from Cutler's political base, democrat candidate for governor Michael Michaud has, on Monday November 4th, come out and declared, with no collaborating proof, himself to be a homosexual. Michaud has done this with no proof whatsoever, not even a statement of verification and collaboration from his house colleague and at times mentor, openly homosexual former member of Congress from Massachusetts, Barney Frank.

    As Michaud tries to distance himself from his own dismal record as a member of Congress, his evolving from being a Pro-Life supporter to a supporter of abortion on demand throughout all nine months of pregnancy, his adamant support of obama care, his open and infamous support of all things Pelosi and Obama, he seems to be willing to go to any and all lengths to keep himself on the front page and to out liberal, out progressive, out support all things destructive to the Republic Eliot Cutler.

    While Michaud tries to hide his record, we at MaineTV.net will proudly remind you off his Citizen despising roll call votes.

    Is this why Michaud went to Afganastan?
    Watch this progressive insurance company ad and see Why Christians never want to do any business with progressive Insurance Company. But with Michaud as Governor Progressive would become the new insurer of the state, for the very same reasons Christians and others who are sand shun them.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Unbelievable surveillance video captured flash mobs dashing into store after store and running out with armloads and sometimes entire racks of sporting goods.

    It has happened at three different Sports Authority stores in the Chicago area.

    This past Monday in Burbank at just before 1 p.m., five individuals entered a Sports Authority and soon after they were off. Video shows them running out the door with rack after rack of apparel and an employee giving chase.

    On Saturday at a Sports Authority on Clark Street, a half dozen entered and stole several racks with lighting fast speed.

    The store chain sounded the siren, saying, “At Sports Suthority, the comfort and safety of our employees and customers always remain our top priority.”

    It’s like a next generation flash mob.

    “They used to just be fun. They used to just be positive and now, I don’t know, it seems to have turned into something negative,” said one shopper.

    No one was hurt in the three incidents, though it’s clear the mob stops for no one. A close look at the robbery on Clark Street shows an employee who tries to intercede gets trampled.

    The third incident occurred at the Frankfort location.

    There have been no arrests so far and Sports Authority is offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest.

    Folks, the answer is not more police, it isn't more restrictive gun laws, it is not the openly homsexual Michael Michaud running for governor of Maine, it is not more lies from obama, it is not more cowardice from Congress, it is not more hiding and hoping they will go away and rape someone else behavior, nor is it any more lies and twisting of the news by the Portland Press Herald aka the voice of communism in Maine, it isn't even more twisting and rewriting of letters to the editor by the once great Advertiser Democrat of Norway, Maine; no it is this:

    13 year old girl knows well how to use weapons

    *******

    Question of the day;
    Should we, video camera in hand, go to Norway, Maine and ask people on the street how they feel about the new liberal, extreme left wing. progressive, Republic hating, homosexual supporting editors of the Advertiser Democrat?

    Tyrannosaurus rex: Scavenger or Predator?

    Tyrannosaurus rex looms in recent history as likely the most famous dinosaur that ever lived. The Jurassic Park movies pumped new life into its image as a savage predator. But how much of this is Hollywood hype and how much reflects science?

    Looking at the numbers, an adult T. rex weighed in at over five tons. If it were endothermic (i.e., warm-blooded), it would need to eat the equivalent of a full-grown, three-ton hadrosaur each week. If it were ectothermic (i.e., cold-blooded), it would only require a fifth to a tenth as much sustenance. Research on the eating habits and predatory patterns of T. rex lends some interesting results.

    Studies of bite mechanics support the notion that T. rex was truly the “king of dinosaurs.” Scientists in England used dynamic musculoskeletal models to simulate its bite strength and found it nearly doubled that of an equivalent-size alligator.1 Such strength explains the numerous teeth marks imprinted on dinosaur fossils and found to match T. rex’s unique, D-shape teeth. Gouges from large carnivore teeth were even identified on a T. rex toe bone, implicating possible cannibalism.2 The question is, what was this great strength used for—scavenging, predation, or both?

    Paleontologist John R. Horner thinks T. rex was exclusively a scavenger, surmising it was slow in speed and pointing to its massive olfactory lobe that likely enabled it to smell carcasses from afar. However, healed wounds, caused by an animal the size of T. rex and found on Triceratops and Edmontosaurus dinosaur skeletons, indicate these creatures survived predatory attack.3 Most recently, scientists reported finding the tip of a T. rex tooth embedded in the backbone of a duck-billed dinosaur.4 The backbone had healed around the tooth, demonstrating survival after the failed attack. Such evidence aligns with conclusions by some paleontologists that there weren’t enough carcasses available for T. rex to subsist only by scavenging.5 Finally, contrary to perceptions of these creatures as “slow,” they were certainly fast enough to catch their dinner. A study using biomechanical models determined an adult T. rex could run about 18 miles per hour—fast enough to capture prey.6 These findings imply that T. rex probably ate whatever it came across—as an opportunist, and not just a scavenger.

    Regardless of its bite strength and teeth, in God’s original creation even T. rex was a vegetarian, like all other animals.7 It wasn’t until after the sin of man and the Curse that T. rex became a meat-eater—Genesis 3:14 extends the Curse to every beast, which included dinosaurs. With those massive teeth, it’s still a mystery as to exactly what type of vegetation T. rex ate.

    Recently, scientists documented fruit and plant consumption in 13 of the 18 species of crocodilians, classifying them as “generalist predators that complement an otherwise carnivorous diet with fruit.”8 In the same way, fruit and plants probably served as supplements to the mighty T. rex after the Curse. In fact, according to Genesis 6:21, the Ark stored a wide variety of plants, grains, and nuts for the year-long journey during the Flood. Preservation of each species would have required animals on the Ark to survive exclusively on a vegetarian diet.

    Although discoveries of some predators consuming plants may surprise evolutionary scientists, creationists expect them. Tyrannosaurus rex may have had the strongest bite and the biggest teeth of any dinosaur, but it once survived on a diet of plants alone. In spite of its reputation as a violent aggressor, T. rex actually reveals God’s creativity in its anatomy and the diversity of its eating habits, which allowed for survival in a variety of conditions.

    Cancer is a growing worldwide epidemic, with staggering statistics: 20,000 people dying of cancer every day; 1 person out of 3 will be faced with cancer at one point in their life; and 1 million Americans are diagnosed with cancer every year.

    The numbers and stats in the below video are from 2004 and before, they are much, much higher today.
    The standard treatment for cancer has been the same for many decades and is comprised of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, the latter two being toxic to healthy cells in the human body.

    The Guy who Reversed Stage IV Prostate Cancer with Baking Soda and Molasses
    by Paul Fassa October 2nd, 2013

    Could you use something as simple as baking powder or baking soda to treat cancer? One man, Vernon Johnston, used baking soda and molasses as the driving force to recover from aggressive stage 4 prostate cancer, which had even metastasized into his bone matter. As far as the medical establishment is concerned, you should never hear about this story. His Brother’s Advice

    After Vernon was diagnosed, Vernon’s brother Larry told him to work on raising his pH since cancer cannot thrive in a high or alkaline pH. Larry recommended cesium chloride to raise Vernon’s pH levels into a high alkaline level physiologically.

    Vernon did not undergo any harmful orthodox treatments after he was diagnosed. That meant his alternative therapy would be more effective. He optimistically ordered the cesium chloride, but it got lost in the mail. So he frantically looked for another source of raising his pH level into the alkaline range.

    That’s when he discovered the remedy of baking powder or bicarbonate of soda with maple syrup. Not having maple syrup in his kitchen, he decided to use the molasses that was handy. He was anxious to kill the cancer before it killed him. ... Continued here.

    Article One, Section 16, of the Maine State Constitution reads as follows. To keep and bear arms. Every citizen has a right to keep and bear arms and this right shall never be questioned. It is a simple sentence that does not allow for the will of a local member of the body politic or police to require you, as a citizen of Maine, to ask their permission to own and carry a weapon. Section 16 was amended in the November 4 election of 1987. It was done to clarify the rights of citizens to keep and bear arms. This became necessary due to the arbitrary denial of permits by chiefs of police in Portland, Biddeford, Westbrook, Wells, Lewiston, August and Bangor to name a few. Once again we are seeing the ugly head of the police state rising in those same cities along with the legislature.
    One of the most important of the many differences between our Constitutional Republic and a democracy is that in our Constitutional Republic power flows from the people to the government, in a democracy power flows from the g0vt to the people. We, the USA, are the only Constitutional Republic on the face of the earth. Those who wish to live in a democracy have the rest of the world to move to and they should.

    Cat gives birth to litter and then lends teat to baby squirrel

    Cat gives birth to litter before adopting baby squirrel
    The squirrel suckles on a teat just like its step-siblings (Picture: ingur/mustardtits)

    A tender cat that had just given birth gave her owners a bit of a shock when she was found to not only to be nursing her kittens, but a squirrel too.

    According to her owner – a Redditor who posted the incredible pictures online – the adult cat had only given birth one day before she brought in the ‘shivering and breathing squirrel’ which had ‘no signs of a mother.’

    ‘We took him inside and called the vet. He said that if our cat had just given birth, there’s a very high chance she would care for the squirrel without a second thought. And that is exactly what she did,’ the Redditor explained.

    (Picture: ingur/mustardtits)
    The two squirrels asleep with their new family (Picture: ingur/mustardtits)

    The Good Samaritan cat didn’t stop there, however, as she went out two days later and ‘came back from under the porch with another one.’

    Alongside her kittens she placed the second new creature with the first.

    The litter reportedly all sleep together in their home on a farm, and the youngster is even sometimes carried around in the mouth of its new mum just like one of her own.

    TSA agent shot as gunman open fires at Los Angeles airport
    By Cheryl K. Chumley - The Washington Times

    A Transportation Security Agent was among the victims of a shooting inside Los Angeles International Airport of Friday, authorities said.

    The shooter opened fire inside the terminal, leaving at least three injured — a 29-year-old man and two others, one of whom was a TSA worker, NBC Los Angeles reported.

    FOX News reported that only two were shot — the gunman and a TSA worker — and that the suspect is in custody.

    It’s not clear how badly the victims were injured.

    The shooter was able to slide past security and release a round of shots inside Terminal 3, around 9 a.m., The New York Daily News reported.

    Police swarmed, evacuating the port.

    One witness was taking a nap, when he was awakened by the sound of gunfire and panicked people, CNN reported.

    “I heard a popping sound and everybody was diving for cover,” said the man, Robert Perez, to CNN. “The TSA said there was a shooting in the terminal and to evacuate the building.”

    Mr. Perez said he saw about 100 people fleeing down the stairs.

    Everybody started to panic,” he said.

    Update:The Los Angeles International Airport shooter was an off-duty Transportation Security Administration agent, according to an internal law enforcement memo obtained by The Daily Caller.

    The brief memo further explains that the shooter is down but still alive, that he opened fire at the Terminal 3 checkpoint and “shot his way through the terminal,” that three people were wounded, and one TSA officer was killed.

    “Reports of second shooter have not been confirmed,” the memo added.

    Full memo:

    Shooter down, but reportedly still alive.

    Shooter is a TSA officer that was off duty.

    He opened fire at the checkpoint for T3 and shot his way through terminal.

    Three victims wounded and one on duty TSA officer shot and killed.

    Germany: Prepared to speak with Snowden
    By GEIR MOULSON and KIRSTEN GRIESHABER

    BERLIN (AP) - Germany's top security official said Friday he will try and find a way for Edward Snowden to speak to German officials if the former National Security Agency contractor is willing to provide details about the NSA's activities including the alleged surveillance of Chancellor Angela Merkel's cellphone.

    The comments by Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich came after a German opposition lawmaker traveled to Moscow and met Snowden. The lawmaker, Hans-Christian Stroebele, said he received a letter from Snowden to German authorities that he planned to present later Friday.

    Stroebele, a Green party lawmaker, is a prominent critic of the NSA's alleged activities.

    "If the message is that Mr. Snowden wants to give us information, then we will be glad to accept that," Friedrich said, according to the newspaper Die Zeit. He said that "we will find a way to make a conversation possible if Mr. Snowden is prepared to talk to German officials."

    Friedrich's spokesman, Jens Teschke, confirmed the comments, saying "we want clarification and we want further information."

    He added, however, that he understood Friedrich to be referring primarily to the possibility of officials speaking to Snowden in Russia, where he has been granted asylum.

    Germany is seeking answers from U.S. authorities to allegations Merkel's cellphone was monitored, which prompted the German chancellor to complain to Obama last week. Merkel's foreign policy adviser and intelligence coordinator held talks on the issue in Washington on Wednesday.

    Germany's government, along with many others, rejected an asylum request from Snowden earlier this year.

    Teschke said Friday that, if Snowden now wanted asylum in Germany, he would have to come to the country and then apply for it - but noted that Germany has an extradition treaty with the United States.

    German federal prosecutors are looking into whether there are grounds to investigate the allegations regarding Merkel's cellphone, but it is unclear when they might decide. Germany's parliament is expected to discuss the NSA's alleged activities Nov. 18 and lawmakers may decide to set up a commission of inquiry.

    Thomas Oppermann, a lawmaker who heads a parliamentary panel that oversees German intelligence, said on Twitter that if there's an opportunity to hear Snowden as a witness without endangering him and without "completely ruining" German-U.S. relations, it should be taken. Oppermann is a member of the center-left Social Democrats, who are negotiating with Merkel's conservatives to form a new German government after September elections.

    Snowden was granted asylum in Russia in August after being stuck at a Moscow airport for more than a month following his arrival there from Hong Kong. The 30-year-old faces espionage charges in the U.S.

    Tunnel linking US and Mexico found

    Footage shows inside the tunnel, described by officials as "highly sophisticated"

    A drug-smuggling tunnel equipped with electricity, ventilation and a rail system has been found connecting San Diego, California, and Tijuana, Mexico.

    Authorities seized more than eight tons of marijuana and 325lb (147kg) of cocaine in the discovery.

    Officials have not revealed the exact length or location of the recently finished tunnel, but Mexican media report it is near Tijuana's airport.

    More than 75 such secret tunnels have been discovered since 2008.

    US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced the find on Thursday.

    'Just completed'

    It was described as "a just completed, highly sophisticated underground passageway", according to an ICE statement.

    The tunnel is the eighth discovered just in San Diego since 2006, according to media reports.

    In 2010, officials confiscated 22 tons of drugs from a 640m (2,100ft) tunnel equipped with rail tracks stretching from a Tijuana home to two San Diego warehouses.

    Ping List: *Immigration Issues-Borders*

    House Homeland Security Committee chairman Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) told radio’s Laura Ingraham on Wednesday that he has told House Speaker John Boehner that he must publicly promise there will be no conference committee on the Senate’s “Gang of Eight” immigration bill.

    “I am not going to go down the road of conferencing with the Senate bill and I told Boehner that he needs to stand up and make that very clear,” McCaul said on Ingraham’s program on Wednesday morning. “We’re not going to conference with the senate period.”

    McCaul said that he believes a conference committee on the Senate immigration bill is a “political trap” that President Barack Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid are trying to set. McCaul said he does not want to be caught in the trap. “I was invited to the White House yesterday and I refused to meet with the President because I saw it as a political trap,” he said.

    Boehner, House Budget Committee chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Majority Leader Eric Cantor have publicly left the door open to conference, with Ryan actually publicly advocating for one. “A lot of people are saying, just pass the Senate bill," Ryan said in July. "That's not what the House is going to do. I think we can make it better."

    The Senate bill’s principal GOP sponsor, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), said this weekend in a Breitbart News exclusive that he is opposed to a conference committee and does not think the House should make efforts to save his immigration bill there. Rather, Rubio said, the House should focus on what Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Jeff Sessions (R-AL) have described as a true step-by-step piecemeal immigration reform, whereby individual pieces are passed and then implemented before other pieces are taken up by Congress.

    Mother Jones Shocker: 'New Poll Shows Democratic Incumbents in Big Trouble'

    Noel Sheppard's picture

    Since the government shutdown, you can't swing a dead cat without hitting some media member claiming Republicans are in a lot of trouble heading into next year's midterm elections.

    Breaking with the trend rather surprisingly Wednesday was the perilously liberal Mother Jones with a piece titled "New Poll Shows Democratic Incumbents in Big Trouble."

    The poll was actually from James Carville and Stan Greenberg's Democracy Corps and was titled "The Revolt Against Washington and the Republican Congress."

    Despite Carville and Greenberg's conclusions, author Kevin Drum dug deeper into the specifics to find some contrary nuggets:

    In Democratic districts, net incumbent approval has plummeted by 11 points, from +8 approval to +3 disapproval. In Republican districts, incumbent approval has gone down only 4 points. You see the same results when they ask a question about warmth of feeling toward incumbents: It's down 7 points in Republican districts and 9 points in Democratic districts.

    This isn't good news for Democrats. It's true that attitudes toward the Republican Party have taken a bigger hit than attitudes toward the Democratic Party, but attitudes toward actual incumbents are exactly the opposite. And in elections, that's what matters.

    Wow! A liberal publication taking a Democratic poll and finding bad news for...Democrats?

    I don't imagine you'll be hearing THAT on MSNBC any time soon.

    Even black college students now know that obama is a pathological corrupt decietful lair.

    Security adviser to Obama says U.S. is an ‘Islamic country’
    By Douglas Ernst - The Washington Times

    A member of the Department of Homeland Security Advisory Council is under fire for tweeting that America is “an Islamic country.”

    After a Twitter user asked Mohamed Elibiary on Thursday to “show me just ONE example of an Islamic country where non Muslims are treated with equality,” he responded with the controversial tweet, which was first reported by the Washington Free Beacon: “America and yes I do consider the United States of America an Islamic country with an Islamically compliant constitution. Move On!”


    SEE ALSO: Muslim Brotherhood caught using puppies as fire bombs


    The back-and-forth between Beacon, Mr. Elibiary has served on the department’s “Countering Violent Extremist Working Group,” as well as its “Faith-based Security and Communications Advisory Committee.” He is also a strong supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Neither the department nor Mr. Elibiary responded to the Beacon’s request for comment.

    Can Portland, Augusta, Biddeford and Windham be far behind?

    Editor's Note: This column was co-authored by Prof. Richard Vedder, the Distinguished Professor of Economics Emeritus at Ohio University.

    Cincinnati and Detroit are separated by barely more than 250 miles – a five-hour drive at worst, or under an hour by plane. Despite this proximity, many Cincinnatians would prefer to believe that Detroit’s horrendous fiscal situation couldn’t possibly hit their city. Not so fast.

    As the largest bankrupt city in America, Detroit has seen its population drop by more than half, unemployment soar to well over double the national average, and services decline. This is what happens to a locality mired in $18.5 billion of debt.

    No, Cincinnati is not in immediate danger of that degree of collapse. But as Ohioans with some 75 years of combined experience in public service and fiscal policy, we both strongly believe the City should learn a lesson from Detroit now … before the seeds of such a crisis grow out of control.

    Roughly half of Detroit’s debt is due to the excessively generous pension and health care plans for 20,000 Motor City retirees. They’re not alone. The Pew Center found that 61 of America’s major cities had a total gap of $217 billion in unfunded pension and health care liabilities, and determined that ample benefits had been guaranteed to retirees without a viable way to manage the inevitably high long-term costs.

    Cincinnati has been strained by bloated pensions for several years now; leaders appointed two task forces and created a Board of Trustees for overhauling the City’s retirement programs between 2007 and 2010. By 2011, that Board was warning of pension fund insolvency for City workers within 21 years Although the City Council instituted reforms in response, more recent news indicates there is a great deal of urgent work still to be done.

    In June of this year, Ohio Auditor David Yost sent a letter to City officials, detailing an $862 million unfunded pension liability as of the end of 2012. That works out to over $6,500 for every household in the City. Other estimates, using different financial assumptions, put the total much higher – and those numbers don’t even include potentially tens of thousands more per Cincinnati household from state-level government pensions. It is therefore no wonder that, on July 15, Moody’s downgraded the City of Seven Hills’ general obligation bonds due to “budgetary pressure” from pension contributions.
