Nehemiah’s Prayer

by R.L. David Jolly

When the early colonists set foot on what was to become the United States, they came in search of a land where they could freely worship the God of the Bible.  They fled the religious persecution that they were under in their homelands.  Our nation was built upon the Christian principles found in the Geneva Bible that they brought with them.

No John 3:16 at Super Bowl

This is from the network that each year tries and jam "Merry Christmas" down our throats, yet when it comes to the real God instead of paganism, they find no room at the inn.  Well Gretch, we are waiting...

On Super Bowl Sunday, an organization that sponsors debates between Christians and atheists will not be given the opportunity it planned to spark a nationwide discussion on Jesus Christ, for Fox Broadcasting Company has rejected its commercial featuring John 3:16.

 


The Face of a Poisoned Man

Dr. Mark Sircus

Yannick Chenet, a French winegrower, died after contracting leukemia, becoming the first farmer to have his illness officially linked to the pesticides he used for years on his crops. He is among 40 or so farmers in France whose illnesses have now been officially linked to their profession and the pesticides they have sprayed on the land. More than a quarter of the roughly 220,000 tons of pesticides used in Europe per year is sprayed onto French soil.

Yannick started working at 14 or 15 years of age and, like many children around the world, has been heavily exposed to pesticides and many other noxious chemicals. In April 2004, he inadvertently breathed in noxious fumes from his agricultural spraying machine without a mask on. Immediately admitted to hospital, he fell into a coma. Since then his illness continues to affect his kidneys and nervous system and he has again fallen into comas on several occasions. 

Palestinians proposed giving Temple Mount to the Pope

The PA In Ramallah told the US it is willing to give the Old City of Jerusalem to a proposed joint committee to administer the Temple Mount.

The Pope is longing to set up his throne on the Temple Mount, and gains support from Islam. These wicked men are in agreement.


Wikileaks have done it again. Displayed double standards, and the true motives of the “peace makers” in the Middle East.

The battle is not for justice and democracy. The battle is for the control of Mount Zion, the very site of the two Jewish temples in Jerusalem.  The man who soon will sit there will be worshiped as God, the Father Jesus addressed as the “Holy Father“. But the man on the Temple Mount, will be a fake, and a very powerful deceiver. Millions will worship this man of lawlessness.

This is what the Israeli Daily Haaretz write on the latest catch of “secret documents”.

The documents also reveal that the Palestinian negotiators, in an effort to move forward on the hyper-sensitive issue of the holy sites in the Old City of Jerusalem, proposed a joint committee to administer the Temple Mount.

The offers were made in 2008, in the wake of the Annapolis conference, and were privately hailed by chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat as giving Israel “the biggest Yerushalayim [the Hebrew name for Jerusalem] in history.”

The PA In Ramallah is on the pay role of the US and the Papacy. They are not interested in grabbing land in East Jerusalem, for any other purpose than bringing the head of the One World religion back to his former throne in East Jerusalem. The Bishop of Rome ruled in Jerusalem from 1090 A.D to 1291. A.D.

Palestinian negotiators secretly agreed to concede almost all Jewish areas of East Jerusalem to Israel, the Guardian newspaper and Al-Jazeera TV reported on Saturday.

As many as 1,600 Palestinian documents on peace talks with Israel, obtained by Al Jazeera TV and given to the Guardian, covering more than a decade of exchanges, provide a unique look into the breakdown of the peace process.

The biggest leak of confidential documents in the history of the conflict has revealed that Palestinian negotiators secretly agreed to accept Israel’s annexation of all but one of the neighborhoods, Har Homa, built in East Jerusalem.

Hawaii official now swears: No Obama birth certificate

By Jerome R. Corsi
© 2011 WorldNetDaily

 

Former Hawaii elections clerk Tim Adams has signed an affidavit swearing he was told by his supervisors in Hawaii that no long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate existed for Barack Obama Jr. in Hawaii and that neither Queens Medical Center nor Kapi'olani Medical Center in Honolulu had any record of Obama having been born in their medical facilities.


Notary seal on Timothy Adams' affidavit

Adams was employed at the City and County of Honolulu Elections Division from May 2008 through September 2008.

His position was senior elections clerk, overseeing a group of 50 to 60 employees responsible for verifying the identity of voters at the Absentee Ballot Office. It was in this capacity that Adams became aware of the search for Obama's birth-certificate records.

See the movie Obama does not want you to see: Own the DVD that probes this unprecedented presidential-eligibility mystery!

"During the course of my employment," Adams swears in the affidavit (viewable in full as part 1 and part 2), "I became aware that many requests were being made to the City and County of Honolulu Elections Division, the Hawaii Office of Elections, and the Hawaii Department of Health from around the country to obtain a copy of then-Senator Barack Obama's long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate."

As he inquired about the birth certificate, he says, his supervisors told him that the records were not on file at the Hawaii Department of Health.

"Senior officers in the City and County of Honolulu Elections Division told me on multiple occasions that no Hawaii long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate existed for Senator Obama in the Hawaii Department of Health," Adams' affidavit reads, "and there was no record that any such document had ever been on file in the Hawaii Department of Health or any other branch or department of the Hawaii government."


Tim Adams, former senior elections clerk for Honolulu

In a recorded telephone interview, Adams told WND that it was common knowledge among election officials where he worked that no long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate could be found at the Hawaii Department of Health.

"My supervisor came and told me, 'Of course, there's no birth certificate. What? You stupid,'" Adams said. "She usually spoke well, but in saying this she reverted to a Hawaiian dialect. I really didn't know how to respond to that. She said it and just walked off. She was quite a powerful lady."

Moreover, Adams was told that neither Queens Memorial Hospital nor Kapi'olani Medical Center had any records of Obama's birth at their medical facilities: "Senior officers in the City and County of Honolulu Elections Division further told me on multiple occasions that Hawaii State government officials had made inquires about Sen. Obama's birth records to officials at Queens Medical Center and Kapi'olani Medical Center in Honolulu and that neither hospital had any record of Senator Obama having been born there, even though Governor Abercrombie is now asserting and various Hawaii government officials continue to assert Barack Obama Jr. was born at Kapi'olani Medical Center on Aug. 4, 1961."

"We called the two hospitals in Honolulu: Queens and Kapi'olani," Adams stressed. "Neither of them have any records that Barack Obama was born there."

Abercrombie drops effort to disclose more information on Obama birth certificate

This is just so funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Yet, nobody will cover this.

 

Democratic Gov. Neil Abercrombie will end his quest to prove President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii because it's against state law to release private documents, his office said today.

State Attorney General David Louie told the governor he can't disclose an individual's birth documentation without a person's consent, Abercrombie spokeswoman Donalyn Dela Cruz said.

"There is nothing more that Gov. Abercrombie can do within the law to produce a document," said Dela Cruz. "Unfortunately, there are conspirators who will continue to question the citizenship of our president."   MORE>>>>>>>>


Add Rush Limbaugh to big list of 'birthers'

Talk-radio king asks why Hawaii governor
seems to be alone in quest to resolve issue

Rush Limbaugh

Rush Limbaugh opened his top-rated program today asking why Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie appears to have no support from the White House in his publicized quest to resolve the growing doubt about Barack Obama's eligibility for the Oval Office.

"Where's Obama? Where's the White House? Is this guy flying alone? Neil Abercrombie on his own on this? So much of this is difficult to fathom, to believe," the king of talk radio said.

Limbaugh noted WND's story Wednesday that has led to established media such as the Daily Mail of London declaring in a headline: "Hawaii governor claims record of Obama's birth 'exists in archives' but cannot produce the vital document."

Abercrombie said in a Honolulu Star-Advertiser interview published Tuesday that he wanted to resolve the issue because he feared it would jeopardize Obama's re-election in 2012.

"But he's done the exact opposite now," Limbaugh said. "How many of us could get away with saying, 'Yeah there's a little notation somewhere there in the archives, but we can't find the birth certificate.'"

Franklin Graham: Spirit of Anti-Christ Is Everywhere

By David A. Patten

The Rev. Franklin Graham says just mentioning the name Jesus Christ in the public square is increasingly frowned upon and warns: "The spirit of anti-Christ is everywhere."

The Samaritan’s Purse founder and son of beloved evangelist Dr. Billy Graham voiced his dismay at the rapid secularization of society Franklin, Graham, Jesus, Christ, spirit,anti-Christduring a Tuesday chapel service at John Brown University, a private Christian university based in Siloam Springs, Ark.

Graham, who was banned from a Pentagon national day of Prayer event last year for expressing his opinions about Islam, told students: “Even in our government today, you can't pray to Jesus in many public meetings. You can pray to God or a god. You can mention Buddha or the name of Muhammad -- but you can't pray to Jesus Christ.”

The president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association criticized the recent memorial service for the Tucson shooting victims.

Unlike the memorials held after the Oklahoma City bombing and 9/11, he said, the Tucson program did not include an official prayer or mention of God. Graham noted gratefully, however, that President Barack Obama did quote scripture from the biblical book of Job.

Hawaii governor claims record of Obama's birth 'exists in archives' but can't produce the vital document

Pressure was mounting on Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie today amid increasing confusion over whether President Obama was born there.

Abercrombie said on Tuesday that an investigation had unearthed papers proving Obama was born in Hawaii in 1961.

He told Honolulu's Star-Advertiser: 'It actually exists in the archives, written down,' he said.

But it became apparent that what had been discovered was an unspecified listing or notation of Obama's birth that someone had made in the state archives and not a birth certificate.

And in the same interview Abercrombie suggested that a long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate for Barack Obama may not exist within the vital records maintained by the Hawaii Department of Health.

He said efforts were still being made to track down definitive vital records that would prove Obama was born in Hawaii.


Worshiping Moloch

By William J. Murray

I travel often to the Middle East in my capacity as the chairman of the Religious Freedom Coalition. Many times I am exposed to locations and situations that most people, traveling on tour buses or part of official delegations, do not see when in this area of the world. In June of 2010, I was in Samaria dealing with issues of religious freedom. [Note: Western leaders and the media refer to Samaria as the "West Bank." Those who refer to Samaria as the West Bank do so because they refuse to admit that it was ever a part of Israel, even in biblical times.]


Altar to Moloch, Ariel, Samaria. Photo: William J. Murray

 

I stayed in an apartment in Samaria belonging to friends, a Messianic Jewish couple whose son was severely injured in a bombing in 2008. A short distance from their apartment in Ariel is located a newly found sacrificial altar to the god Moloch, which was carved from rock about the time Solomon became involved with pagan gods. Seeing this altar firsthand and actually touching it gave me chills as I recalled its use in biblical times.

Typical of all altars of that day, including altars to Jehovah for animal sacrifices, the stone had been carved to show four horns, one at each corner. However, altars to Moloch were used for the sacrifice of human beings, not goats or lambs. As I looked upon it, a sense of how little has changed in 2,000 years overcame me.

Moloch was one of many pagan gods worshiped by means of human sacrifice. Pagans who worshiped Moloch often sacrificed one of their own children, who was ritually murdered and then placed in a sacrificial altar of fire. The sacrifice of the child was to assure a blessing of prosperity for the family. Some followed the Canaanite practice of placing under the front doorstep of the family home the bones that remained after the burning of the child.

Neil Abercrombie

Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie suggested in an interview published today that a long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate for Barack Obama may not exist within the vital records maintained by the Hawaii Department of Health.

Abercrombie told the Honolulu Star Advertiser he was searching within the Hawaii Department of Health to find definitive vital records that would prove Obama was born in Hawaii, because the continuing eligibility controversy could hurt the president's chances of re-election in 2012.

Donalyn Dela Cruz, Abercrombie's spokeswoman in Honolulu, ignored again today another in a series of repeated requests made by WND for an interview with the governor.

Toward the end of the interview, the newspaper asked Abercrombie: "You stirred up quite a controversy with your comments regarding birthers and your plan to release more information regarding President Barack Obama's birth certificate. How is that coming?"

In his response, Abercrombie acknowledged the birth certificate issue will have "political implications" for the next presidential election "that we simply cannot have."

36th President - LYNDON BAINES JOHNSON Some little known facts

I know liberals long for the good old days of the Great Society and the man who truly freed the slave! President Johnson was a very good politician, but a very lousy president!

Born: August 27, 1908, in the vicinity of Johnson City, Tex.

Died: January 22, 1973, at the LBJ Ranch, the 360-acre retreat not far from his birthplace.

His Person: An imposing 6'3", massive bone structure, slightly paunchy in middle age. Long nose, enormous fleshy ears, and leathery skin. Liked to relax every day with Cutty Sark Scotch stirred into watery highballs. Smoked 3 packs of cigarettes a day, then quit after suffering a severe heart attack at age 47. Boundless energy; as President, he worked every day from 6:30 A.M. till one or 2 the next morning, with a brief break for a nap after lunch.

Little-Known Facts:

After he became President, LBJ briefly considered firing FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, but eventually changed his mind. "I'd rather have him inside the tent pissing out, than outside pissing in," the President reasoned.  Hoover developed a close relationship with Lyndon B. Johnson. The two men shared information that they had on senior politicians. After the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Hoover helped Johnson to cover-up the assassination and the Bobby Baker scandal.

Once, as Johnson prepared to leave an airport after a speech, an army staff sergeant noticed that the President was heading for the wrong helicopter. He came up to LBJ, pointing: "Mr. President, that is your helicopter over there." Johnson threw one of his huge arms over the sergeant's shoulders and smiled: "Son, they are all my helicopters."

 

Quotes from Johnson:

 

"Never trust a man whose eyes are too close to his nose."

 

"I wake up at 5 A.M. some mornings and hear the planes coming in at National Airport and I think they are bombing me."

 

"Just like the Alamo, somebody damn well needed to go to their aid. Well, by God, I'm going to Vietnam's aid."

 

"If we quit Vietnam, tomorrow we'll be fighting in Hawaii, and next week we'll have to fight in San Francisco."

 

"I can't trust anybody! What are you trying to do to me? Everybody is trying to cut me down, destroy me!"--To an aide, 1967

 

Quotes about Him:

"When all the returns are in, perhaps President Johnson will have to settle for being recognized as the greatest American President for the poor and for the Negroes, but that, as I see it, is a very great honor indeed."--Ralph Ellison

"He doesn't like cold intellectuals around him. He wants people who will cry when an old lady falls down in the street."--Jack Valenti

"Can it be that this President, so competent and masterful and overwhelming, is plagued and eaten and driven to immoderation by some inward insecurity?"--John Osborne

And historians today don't understand why America had such great hope for Richard Nixon!

After two weeks, mystery still surrounds death of Wheeler

By Kathleen Brady Shea

Inquirer Staff Writer

An unfitting end to an illustrious career.

That's how several West Point classmates viewed the New Year's Eve discovery of a prominent defense expert's body in a Wilmington landfill.

Two weeks after Newark, Del., police identified John "Jack" P. Wheeler 3d, 66, of New Castle, as a homicide victim, investigators still have released few particulars about the case, allowing conspiracy theorists of all kinds to draw pictures of their own.

Danbury Fair - In Connecticut: A Fair WENT Dark

Forward by Bob Barney: For  hundreds of thousands that grew up in western Connecticut for almost 100-years, The Danbury Fair and Racearena wa unlike any other event!  Some memories for some of our readers who remember....

 

From TIME (1981):

Smack in the center of the red-and-white-striped big top, Arlene Yaple, 63, surveys her domain: prize pumpkins, homemade brownies, dried cornstalks, okra and an American flag crafted of apples and grapes. Square dancers do-si-do to the bidding of a caller on a stage near by, while curious passers-by gape at a 325-lb. squash lying near Yaple's feet. Above the huge oval ring where the plump, gray-haired woman is sitting hangs a carefully lettered wooden sign that reads, "Arlene Yaple: for 35 years superintendent of Granges and Big Top displays. Danbury Fair thanks you for the great job you have done."

It is Columbus Day, usually a time to honor man's thirst for discovery. But in Danbury this year, it is a time for nostalgia and reflection. Tonight the big top is closing down for good. "We always say see you next year," Yaple muses. "This year, we aren't saying anything. We're all disappearing in the darkness."

Everyone knew it was inevitable.

Started in 1869, the Danbury State Fair had become an anachronism. It celebrated the farm at a time when farms hereabouts can be counted on two hands. But how people loved it: hundreds of thousands streamed through its gates every year to gawk at the livestock, ride the Ferris wheel and gorge on Italian submarine sandwiches and homemade pies. Finally, this stubborn outpost of rural sentiment could hold out no longer.

Sandwiched between Interstate 84 and Route 7, the lifelines of Connecticut's suburban sprawl, the 142-acre fairground was gobbled up by Wilmorite Inc., a Rochester, N.Y. , development firm. Wilmorite plans to construct one of New England's largest shopping malls, with more than a million square feet of commercial space. It will be called the Danbury Fair Mall, and the developers anticipate that it will draw nearly 35,000 customers a day, generate between $200 million and $300 million in sales annually, and stand in blacktop splendor as a testimonial to the properous future of Danbury (pop. 60,470).

"If this is what they call progress, fine", wearily says Leroy E. Paltrowitz, 75, who has been the fair's public relations director for the past 40 years. He pulls at his battered fedora, then adds, voice breaking: "But after 112 years, this is a sad ending to a remarkable and beautiful existence. I just hate to see it go."

Like Paltrowitz, most Danburyites are of two minds about the shopping center. Says Mayor James E. Dyer, 35: "As a citizen, I don't like it. But as mayor, I believe the mall offers some tremendous economic gains for Danbury."

 


Congress quietly prepares to renew Patriot Act


David Edwards and Stephen Webster
Raw Story

Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI) has introduced a little-noticed bill that intends to once again renew controversial provisions of the Bush administration's USA Patriot Act that are due to expire this year.

When the act was first signed into law, Congress put in some "sunset" provisions to quiet the concerns of civil libertarians, but they were ignored by successive extensions. Unfortunately, those concerns proved to be well founded, and a 2008 Justice Department report confirmed that the FBI regularly abused their ability to obtain personal records of Americans without a warrant.


"Spiritual Doorway in the Brain": The science of near-death experiences

Katherine Don
Salon

We've all heard about the bright white light at the end of the tunnel, but what's really going on in a "near-death experience"? That's what neurologist and medical doctor Kevin Nelson tries to uncover in his first book, "The Spiritual Doorway in the Brain: A Neurologist's Search for the God Experience."

Dr. Nelson is one of the world's leading researchers in the biology of near-death and other mystical experiences, and his fascinating book takes the reader from investigations of MRI studies of the brain to historical anecdotes and philosophical inquiry. Three decades of research led Dr. Nelson to a unique and unexpected conclusion about near-death experiences -- rather than arising from parts of the brain that are unique to higher cognitive functions, they actually involve the oldest, most primitive parts of our brain, and might also relate to having dreams while still awake.


Raw milk farmer wins victory against county over ‘illegal’ sales

Ethan A. Huff
Natural News

A small victory has been won on the raw milk battle front. Greene County, Mo., Circuit Judge Daniel Imhoff recently threw out a lawsuit against Armand Bechard, a farmer who sells raw milk to customers in the Springfield area. According to the judge, Bechard was not the proper subject of the lawsuit, and the statute of limitations prevents any further action in the case, so Bechard is free to resume business as usual.

It all started back in April 2009 when undercover agents tricked Bechard’s daughters into selling themraw milk. Farmers can legally sell raw milk in the state of Missourias long as they do so directly from the farm, but they cannot sell it from anywhere else. Cusomters can also legally pick up milk from “drop points”, which Bechard had set up to deliver farm-purchased milk to customers. But agents pretending to be new customers were able to persuade Bechard’s daughters to sell them extra milk right from the drop point, which landed the family in legal trouble.

The divine island of Patmos: Where St John's once lived

By Teresa Levonian Cole

The Greek Islands are about beaches, you say, with maybe a ruin or two to satisfy the nagging cultural imperative. But then, I suspect, you haven't been to Patmos.

This northern Dodecanese island is a special place. Its claim to fame lies in a unique mystical event that took place at the dawn of Christianity, and is embodied in the looming apparition that hovers like a benediction above the island.

You can see it as the boat arrives in the pretty harbour of Skala: a halo of whitewashed houses, encircling what looks like a huge, crenellated castle of volcanic stone. 

A bay on Patmos

Traditional beauty: Patmos is just as stunning as other Greek islands

Leaving Skala's picturesque cafes, ouzeris and tavernas, a drive through thick pine forest will lead straight to it; not a castle at all, but the imposing 11th-century Fortress Monastery of St John the Theologian.

The story of St John  -  sometimes referred to as the Apostle or Divine  -  is central to Patmos. Exiled by emperor Domitian in AD 95 to this backwater, he settled in a cave, where he had the apocalyptic vision recounted in Revelation, the final book of the New Testament.

Nothing much more happened until 1088, when the Blessed Christodoulos, a monk, acquired Patmos from the Byzantine emperor Alexios komnenos, and founded the Monastery to honour St John. This was to become the nucleus of the island and, thanks to the strict observance of tradition and the absence of mass tourism, little has changed.  MORE


The REAL Mount Sinai

MT Sinai Exodus route

Bible Texts Locate the Real Mount Sinai

  • "Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh and dwelt in the land of Midian; and he sat down by a well"  Ex. 2:15 NKJV.   Maps indicate Midian is near the border of the Gulf of Aqaba in Northwest Saudi Arabia, in the area shown on the map above.

  • "And she [Zipporah] bore him a son, and he called his name Gershom; for he said, "I have been a stranger in a foreign land"  Ex. 2:22.  Moses was in a different country, away from any Egyptians in Saudi Arabia.  He could not have been in the Sinai Peninsula, as that area was Egyptian controlled territory, full of Egyptian mines and communication towers.  Moses would have been easily captured in that area.

  • "Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian.  And he led the flock to the back of the desert, and came to Horeb, the mountain of God"  Ex. 3:1.  Jethro lived in the vicinity of Mount Sinai.  Jethro was the leader of the Midianites who were found in this area, "East of the Gulf of Aqaba in the northwestern regions of the Arabian Desert" Britanica.  When researching the location of Mt. Sinai in Saudi Arabia that Mr. Wyatt proposed, I went to the East Tennessee State University Library and found two extremely detailed maps of Saudi Arabia.  On BOTH maps I found the name "Jethro" next to the town of Al Bad, which is near Jebel el Lawz, the correct Mt. Sinai!  See maps below.  Jethro was Moses' father-in-law as we saw in the texts above.  He was from the town of Al Bad, according to the local people who live there today, which is only about 15 miles from Jebel el Lawz.  The local people there today told Ron Wyatt that Jethro was from that area.

Patriot Act, a Nazi law: Ex-CIA official

The United States Patriot Act is similar to the legislations carried out by the Nazi Germany in the World War II era, a former CIA officer says.

“The Patriot Act was similar to legislation carried out by the Nazis because essentially it was using terrorism in both cases as an excuse to strip civil liberties that were enjoyed in both countries; in the United States and Germany,” Phillip Giraldi said in an interview with Press TV.

“Governments have been willing to use fear, such as fear of terrorism, and fear of the enemy, as a way to get the people lined up in support of government policies. Very often these policies are essentially bad for the people because they take away many of their rights,” the former CIA officer said.

He went on to say that the relationship between the American citizens and the US government has changed for the worse since the introduction of the Patriot Act, adding that Americans had not become any safer by their rights being stripped away.

The US Patriot Act and desecration of the constitution has brought a dictatorship surveillance society of phone tapping, hidden cameras and policy brutality in the United States, Giraldi said.   Read the story.......

Ariel Sharon in coma for five years

With little fanfare, Israel on Tuesday marked five years since former prime minister and tough army general Ariel Sharon fell into a coma, ending a controversial political and military career. The long-time leader of the right-wing nationalist camp in Israeli politics suffered a massive stroke on January 4, 2006, slipping into a coma from which he has never recovered. His family have kept him alive on life support, although the former strongman has shown no sign of improvement or indication that he is likely to recover.  No official events marked the anniversary, while Sharon remains hospitalised in the Haim Sheba medical centre at the Tel Hachomer hospital in Tel Aviv.  More.........
