    Bavarian medical ‘breakthrough’ with spider silk

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 11:35 am

    It’s amazing what scientists can do, and the lives and quality of life they can save. Especially with 3-D printing available now, the sky is the limit.

    Biomaterial experts at Germany’s Bayreuth and Würzburg universities claimed a breakthrough in cultivating living cells while holding them in place with liquified spider silk.

    The research method mixed spider silk with connective fibroblast cells from mice to generate a so-called “bio ink” or gel. Fibroblasts typically begin wound repairs.

    When extruded from a 3-D printer, the silk molecules quickly wrapped those cells, giving them a porous matrix in which to flourish, the team said. …

    This could be a God send to people with nerve damage and perhaps paralysis.

    France mobilizes 10,000 troops at home after Paris shootings

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 6:57 am

    Lord, keep the U.S. from becoming France with our immigration policies. The French are mobilizing almost as many troops and policeman in their own country as they have deployed in foreign wars.

    “The threats remain and we have to protect ourselves from them. It is an internal operation that will mobilize almost as many men as we have in our overseas operations,” Le Drian told reporters after a cabinet meeting.

    Mr. Defense Minister, it’s going to take a lot more than additional troops to protect your minorities from the animals in the no-go zones. You need to rid your country of the scourge of Islam before it totally takes over and kills all the minorities, Jews, and anyone who disagrees with them. Unfortunately, France is probably too politically correct to get it in time.

    The victims, including journalists and police, died in three days of violence that began on Wednesday with a shooting attack on the political weekly Charlie Hebdo, known for its satirical attacks on Islam and other religions. Many at Sunday’s march wore badges and carried placards declaring “I Am Charlie”.

    Sadly, wearing your little badges isn’t going to solve the problem either. It just makes all those wearing them a target.

    Second Deadly Shooting Rocks Paris

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 9:24 am

    The carnage continues over a cartoon image of the “prophet” Muhammad. Today it’s another shooting. This is what happens when a country doesn’t monitor their immigration and lets everyone in the door. Barbarians that haven’t gotten over the 9th century blow stuff up and shoot people. That’s where we’re headed if we don’t close off our borders and stop handing out visas like they’re candy. Our leaders think we’re immune to this kind of thing. What will it take to wake them up? Sadly, it will probably take the same thing the French are dealing with. Unless the powers that be decide to take away our freedom to express ourselves and stomp on the first amendment instead of dealing with the real problem.

    Gunshots rang out in Paris this morning on a second day of deadly violence that has stunned the French capital. A policewoman died after being shot in the back less than 24 hours after a deadly terrorist attack on a satirical magazine. French police and security officials, who are hunting two brothers they suspect of murdering 12 people in an assault on the Charlie Hebdo magazine, are searching for links between the two attacks. Officials described Thursday’s shooting as another terrorist attack….

    Obama Spokesman Condemns ‘Terrible Act of Violence’; Calls Islam ‘Peaceful’

    And there you have it again. A peaceful Muslim man slaughtered 12 people in cold blood. But, he did it peacefully in the name of Islam. I’m so sick of hearing that lie repeated every time one of these barbarians chops another head off, or takes part in a mass murder. Our politicians don’t live in the real world, just like they have no idea what the American people actually want them to do.

    “This is a terrible act of violence, and one that we condemn in the strongest possible terms,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Wednesday morning, shortly after masked gunman killed 12 people at the offices of a satirical newspaper in Paris that has made fun of the Prophet Mohammed. French President Francois Hollande called Tuesday’s massacre a terror attack, but Earnest did not: He used the phrase “terrible act of violence” three times, and he also called Islam a “peaceful religion.”…

    BREAKING — Up to 10 Killed in Paris Terrorist Attack

    But, Bush and Obama said Islam is a religion of peace. How can it be that they would retaliate against a magazines anti-ISIS articles by killing more people. There is no such thing as a real moderate Muslim. The “moderate” Muslims are the ones standing in the streets cheering the death of the infidels. They are the one’s who don’t follow the koran and just watch from the sidelines. When will France wake up and do something about their Islam problem? Muslims procreate like polygamist rabbits, so maybe the outcome will be a Muslim France.

    Ten people have been reported killed in a what appears to be a terrorist attack in the offices of the Charlie Hebdo satire magazine on boulevard Richard-Lenoir in Paris (Paris XI). A policeman has also been wounded.

    At least 2 or 3 gunman are believed to have been involved, shooting Kalashnikov rifles.

    According to La Figaaro, the gunman are on the run after a shootout with policemen.

    Doctors Euthanize 650 Babies Under Assisted Suicide Law in the Netherlands

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 9:53 am

    The Assisted Suicide law in the Netherlands was originally deemed necessary to allow the elderly to die with dignity. But, it’s increasingly being used to get rid of the undesirables in society. Babies who supposedly have mental illness are being euthanized because the parents think a little baby can be diagnosed with mental illness for life and they think it’s too painful of a life for their child. That’s exactly what Hitler did with the mentally ill. It’s even sicker that it’s being done in this day and age when there are a plethora of treatments for most mental illnesses that work and allow the person to live a normal life. They will pay for what they have done to the weakest among us, and pay dearly.

    Although the law was designed to help terminally ill patients have a dignified death, the right to die has also been granted to a growing number of people who are physically healthy but have psychological problems. Official figures show that 13 patients suffering from mental illness were euthanized in 2011; by 2013 this number had risen to 42 patients.

    And it is not just adults who are being euthanized. According to the Royal Dutch Medical Association, as many as 650 babies are killed by doctors each year because they are deemed to be in pain or facing a life of suffering.

    Writing in the National Review, Wesley J Smith, senior fellow at the Discovery Institute’s Center on Human Exceptionalism has called on those who support assisted dying to “stop pretending assisted suicide is about terminal illness and admit it is much more about disability–which is why the disability rights movement remains so opposed as they are the primary targets. It is about allowing killing as an acceptable answer to many causes of suffering, whether terminal or chronic disease, disability, mental illness, or existential despair.”

    I have several chronic diseases leading to disability. I guess in the Netherlands they wouldn’t consider me worthy of life. I personally think the problem in many cases is lazy, self absorbed parents, that see themselves as too good to parent a child with health issues. They’ll pay.

    Brutal Cold to Invade Midwest, East Next Week

    Uhoh! The greenies better have a global warming summit asap to counter the evidence that there is no global warming. Weather changes, it has always changed, and it will continue to change. But the global warming enthusiasts will need to spew green house gas into the air at a record rate to meet and counter this freezing cold business. And, what of the increase in polar ice. They must excuse it and find a way to blame climate change. We’re doomed…we really are…really.

    In a pattern fitting for January, waves of cold air will flow into the Midwest and East with brutal blasts of arctic air poised to sweep southeastward next week.

    Following a large storm that bring snow and ice to a large part of the Upper Midwest and interior Northeast this weekend, multiple blasts of cold air will follow.

    The first blast will have many people shivering as they head back to work and school in the Midwest early next week.

    The Islamization of Britain in 2014

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 5:11 pm

    What cowards. The Brits are willing to let their country go down the toilet into an Islamic cesspool of Jihad, sex slaves, and brutality, rather than face the truth and endure some criticism. Why do politicians always put their reputations ahead of human life, and their country? It’s the same in the U.S. We can’t teach Christian history in our classrooms, but we can teach Islam, because no one wants to be labeled Islamaphobic. I’ll admit to it. I have a phobia of people who chop other people’s heads off. I have a phobia of people who set off road side bombs to kill our troops and innocent civilians. I have a phobia of people who worship a “prophet” that taught war and plunder. I don’t want their beliefs taught in my schools, influencing my government, or a part of my society. What’s wrong with that?

    Britain remains the world’s leading recruiting ground for al-Qaeda.

    British school teachers are afraid to teach their students about Christianity out of fear of offending Muslims. — Roger Bolton, BBC Radio 4′s Feedback program.

    Rather than taking steps to protect British children, police, social workers, teachers… and the media deliberately played down the severity of the crimes [of Muslim sexual grooming gangs] in order to avoid being accused of “Islamophobia” or racism. — From the report “Easy Meat: Multiculturalism, Islam and Child Sex Slavery.”

    The problem of honor-based violence and forced marriages in England is “worse than people think.”

    On August 26, Alexis Jay, the leader of an independent inquiry in the sexual abuse of children in Rotherham, released a horrifying report that found that gangs of mainly Muslim men of Pakistani heritage had groomed, terrorized and abused at least 1,400 girls, some as young as 11, in Rotherham over a 16-year period between 1997 and 2013…..

    Obama Throws Fidel a Rope

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 5:18 pm

    Our President is a Marxist, stupid, and an imbecile when it comes to foreign policy. So he traded a prisoner for three communist prisoners. Fine. But saying that the past President’s policy of Cuban isolation hasn’t worked is idiotic. That isolation helped bring down Russia and end the Cold War. Now when some have said a new Cold War is starting, he ends the isolation of Cuba. He’s dead set on bringing this country down. We’ve got ISIL in Iraq, Russia in Ukraine, North Korea hacking Sony, and terrorists flooding across our borders, and he decides to play footsy with Cuba and Iran. He needs to be impeached for treason.

    The celebrations in Havana and the sullen silence in Miami tell you all you need to know about who won this round with Castro’s Cuba.

    In JFK’s metaphor, Obama traded a horse for a rabbit.

    We got back Alan Gross before his Communist jailers killed him, along with an American spy, in exchange for three members of a Cuban espionage ring. Had we left it at that, the deal would have been fine.

    But Obama threw in an admission that all nine presidents before him pursued a “failed policy.” Calling for recognition of the Castro regime as the legitimate government of Cuba, Obama said, “Isolation has not worked.”

    “Not worked”? What is he talking about? Isolating Cuba during the last 30 years of the Cold War helped bankrupt and bring down the Soviet Empire, which had to carry Cuba on its back….

    Taliban Demand Investigation of U.S. for ‘Violations of International Humanitarian Laws’

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 9:00 am

    This is rich. People known for beheading people, honor killings, stoning women for dressing wrong, and shooting people in the back of the head in soccer fields are asking for an investigation into the U.S.’ human rights record. Dianne Feinstein should be tried for treason for what she has brought on all of us with her self righteousness. She handed the enemy just what they needed to get more recruits and kill more Americans. She’s safe in her well guarded capital building, what does she care? Why do we continue to elect the scum of the earth and expect them to give a damn.

    The Taliban has called for an international investigation into the human rights standards of the United States after the Senate Intelligence Committee Democrats released a lengthy report criticizing enhanced interrogation techniques used in the war on terror. Under Taliban rule, Afghans were subject to public floggings or executions for “violations” such as women wearing nail polish or exposing any skin, or both teachers and students trying to learn in underground schools. Women had zero rights and weren’t allowed to leave their homes except with a male relative. ….

    UN panel raps US record on torture

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 10:52 am

    We’ve got Muslims beheading people, and burying them alive, and the UN is all worked up over US “torture”, to include police brutality, military interrogations, and prisons. I guess we should disband the police countrywide, not interrogate the beheading terrorists, and just let everyone go from our prisons. What a waste of time and money the U.N. is.

    Police brutality, military interrogations and prisons were among the top concerns of a U.N. panel’s report Friday that found the United States to be falling short of full compliance with an international anti-torture treaty.

    The report by the U.N. Committee Against Torture, its first such review of the U.S. record since 2006, expressed concerns about allegations of police brutality and excessive use of force by law enforcement officials, particularly the Chicago Police Department’s treatment of blacks and Latinos. It also called for restricting the use of taser weapons by police to life-threatening situations. But it had no specific recommendation or reaction to a grand jury’s decision not to indict the white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri who fatally shot a black and unarmed teenager.

    What business is it of theirs whether we use tasers, guns, or nightsticks? Maybe they should move their circus somewhere more hospitable, say, like Sierra Leone.

    Pun control: China bans wordplay

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 10:28 am

    China must be running out of things to ban. They’ve now banned any play on words in the media.

    The Chinese language is filled with puns and other humorous wordplay, but the country’s print and broadcast watchdog does not believe it has a place in the newsroom.

    The watchdog has panned wordplay for the media citing that it breaches the law on spoken and written Chinese and if they promote puns, it will make teaching China’s cultural heritage harder and could mislead the public, including children, The Guardian reports.

    Those puns might make it harder to enforce group think, and maintain control of all thought by the government. What a great place to live.

    Inventor says his pills make farts smell like chocolate

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 9:18 am

    Now this is what we need! It should be mandatory that everyone take these pills, including my dogs. The only down side I can see is people sniffing each others butts, or maybe a run on chocolate. But it would be worth it. You’d agree if you’d ever slept with my dogs in your bed.

    Christian Poincheval was enjoying a meal out with friends six years ago when he had his eureka moment and the idea for a new product popped into his head.

    What sparked his creativity? “After a hearty meal, we almost suffocated as our farts were smelly,” the French inventor says, per Mashable. “The winds were not very pleasant for our fellow diners. I had to do something.” Poincheval says he first visited a lab to investigate natural remedies for offending flatulence.

    After months of experiments, he had his invention: a line of pills Poincheval says help digestion and turn flatulence into “perfume” using 100% natural ingredients, the Telegraph reports.

    Available here, the pills under the name Lutin Malin—or “Crafty Imp” in English—come in rose and violet scents. And just in time for the holidays, the “Father Christmas” fart pill “gives your farts the scent of chocolate.” A jar of 60 pills, made from blueberries, seaweed, fennel, plant resin, and other ingredients, costs $12.50 and is the perfect Christmas gift for your smelly friends, Poincheval says.

    Now that’s a gift that really says Merry Christmas.

    OPEC Policy Ensures U.S. Shale Crash, Russian Tycoon Says

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 9:43 am

    We need to produce MORE oil. More from shale, more from the pipeline Obama so hates, more from Alaska. We need multiple sources of oil so that OPEC can’t target us. Put OPEC out of business. We aren’t over a barrel here. We have plenty of resources to become completely independent of our oil overlords. We just need the right President to get in there and do it.

    OPEC policy on crude production will ensure a crash in the U.S. shale industry, a Russian oil tycoon said.

    The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries kept output targets unchanged at a meeting in Vienna today even after this year’s slump in the oil price caused by surging supply from U.S shale fields.

    American producers risk becoming victims of their own success. At today’s prices of just over $70 a barrel, drilling is close to becoming unprofitable for some explorers, Leonid Fedun, vice president and board member at OAO Lukoil (LKOD), said in an interview in London.

    “In 2016, when OPEC completes this objective of cleaning up the American marginal market, the oil price will start growing again,” said Fedun, who’s made a fortune of more than $4 billion in the oil business, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. “The shale boom is on a par with the dot-com boom. The strong players will remain, the weak ones will vanish.”

    Nato warns of very serious buildup of Russian troops inside Ukraine

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 2:08 am

    It won’t do any good to warn Obama, and I think Nato probably knows that. He won’t even deal with the biggest threat we face today, that being ISIL. Obama is done playing President now. He’d rather let the adults handle it. The problem is, without American leadership, nothing gets done. We normally pay for it, handle it, and get results. Not under this loser of a President. Now we sit on the sidelines and wait for ISIL to come to us. And, Ukraine isn’t even on his radar.

    Frank-Walter Steinmeier made the downbeat assessment after NATO’s secretary-general spoke of a “very serious build-up” of troops, artillery and air defence systems inside Ukraine and on the Russian side of the border.

    Steinmeier was the first senior European minister to visit Moscow since July, in a sign of how relations between the West and Russia have dived to a post-Cold War low over the conflict in eastern Ukraine.

    “There are no grounds for optimism in the current situation,” Steinmeier said at a press conference after talks with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov in Moscow.

    The German minister warned of a “dangerous situation developing” in Ukraine, which he visited earlier in the day.

    If you asked him, I bet Obama would put down his golf club and announce that he didn’t know about it until now, and he just heard about it on the news.

    Maine’s largest city cuts spending in dispute over immigrant aid

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 6:13 pm

    This is an excellent idea. Cutting funding to cities that give it to illegals eliminates their whole reason for being here. If there’s no money here to be sent back to Mexico, they’ll stop coming. Of course, more cities would have to adopt this policy, but I have a feeling when Obama, once again, opens the floodgates at the border with his amnesty order, people are going to wake up and realize that we have to pay for all their healthcare needs, education, housing, and food. That might change their minds.

    Maine’s largest city has begun clamping down on spending as newly re-elected Republican Governor Paul LePage makes good on a campaign promise to cut funding to cities and towns that give aid to undocumented immigrants.

    In an internal memo released on Wednesday, Portland city officials said they had frozen hiring and cut travel and overtime spending after their requests for reimbursement from the state for assistance provided to families with children in emergencies had gone unanswered since July.

    The budget shortfall could grow to as much as $3 million this year, city officials said, a hefty sum that underscores the increasingly local impact of the tense congressional standoff over national immigration reform.

    “We just don’t have that kind of money sitting around, so we need to act prudently,” said city spokeswoman Jessica Grondin. “We’re in a holding pattern until we receive some kind of official response.”

    Tea Party-backed LePage, who was re-elected last week with a strong mandate to reform the state’s welfare system, had threatened in June to cut funding to municipalities that give state-reimbursed general assistance to undocumented immigrants.

    “Tell your city councilors and selectmen to stop handing out your money to illegals,” LePage said in a radio address…

    Shift work could be affecting your mental ability, scientists claim

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 8:19 am

    Uhoh! I work nights a lot when it’s quieter. If my blog posts start to sound a bit off, you’ll know why.

    Working an irregular shift pattern may be causing long-term damage to people’s memory and mental abilities, new research has shown.

    Shift work can disrupt the body’s internal clock in a similar way to jet lag, and has been linked before to an increased risk of health problems such as heart problems and even some cancers.

    However, scientists have now found a link between working shifts and a decline in brain function – especially among those whose shifts rotated between morning, afternoon and night.

    In a study of 3,000 people living in France, scientists found that those who worked rotating shifts performed significantly worse in memory and cognitive speed tests than people who had worked regular hours.

    The level of cognitive decline seen in people who worked irregular shifts for 10 years was equivalent to six and a half years’ worth of natural, age-related cognitive decline, said researchers from the universities of Toulouse and Swansea…..

    Reviving the Woolly Mammoth: Will De-Extinction Become Reality?

    Biologists briefly brought the extinct Pyrenean ibex back to life in 2003 by creating a clone from a frozen tissue sample harvested before the goat’s entire population vanished in 2000. The clone survived just seven minutes after birth, but it gave scientists hope that “de-extinction,” once a pipedream, could become a reality. Ten years later, a group of researchers and conservationists gathered in Washington, D.C., today (March 15) for a forum called TEDxDeExtinction, hosted by the National Geographic Society, to talk about how to revive extinct animals, from the Tasmanian tiger and the saber-toothed tiger to the woolly mammoth….

    ‘Tumour’ of Israel will soon be destroyed: Ahmadinejad

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 12:00 am

    Ahmadinejad hasn’t been reading his Bible, but Iran’s actions could very well be the spark that fulfills the prophesies in Ezekiel. If Iran attacks, or Israel launches a preemptive attack it could end up involving the entire Middle East, and eventually the West. It would be an earth shattering event to be sure, and a life changing one for much of the planet.

    It’s also interesting that Syria is on a path to destruction at the same time. Isaiah 17 includes the end times prophecy that Syria will no longer be a city, but a heap of ruins.

    Israel is our time clock, and Jesus is our hope. Be looking up, if this regional war actually begins.

    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told an annual anti-Israel protest in Tehran on Friday that the Jewish state was a “cancerous tumour” that will soon be excised, drawing Western rebukes.

    Washington said Ahmadinejad’s statements were “reprehensible”, while Paris viewed them as “outrageous.”

    Ahmadinejad’s diatribe against Israel in his Quds (Jerusalem) Day address was the latest in a long line to have drawn criticism from Western governments.

    “The Zionist regime and the Zionists are a cancerous tumour,” he said.

    “The nations of the region will soon finish off the usurper Zionists in the Palestinian land…. A new Middle East will definitely be formed. With the grace of God and help of the nations, in the new Middle East there will be no trace of the Americans and Zionists,” he said.

    It was only a matter of time before the culture of death, bombarded with proof that a living child is being killed during an abortion, would have to take a new approach. Now one must be not just a human, but must be considered a “person” before you are worthy of a right to life.

    What kind of animals could slaughter a new born baby and excuse it because they don’t deem that little baby to be a person yet? Who won’t be considered a true person next? Perhaps, disabled people, or old people won’t be considered a full person. This proves, without a doubt, that they know it is murder and they just flat don’t care. We are up against serious evil in this world. What bothers me the most is that most people won’t even hear about this, until it’s too late, or they won’t care until it actually affects them.

    Two ethicists working with Australian universities argue in the latest online edition of the Journal of Medical Ethics that if abortion of a fetus is allowable so to should be the termination of a newborn.

    Alberto Giubilini with Monash University in Melbourne and Francesca Minerva at the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics at the University of Melbourne write that in “circumstances occur[ing] after birth such that they would have justified abortion, what we call after-birth abortion should be permissible.”

    The two are quick to note that they prefer the term “after-birth abortion“ as opposed to ”infanticide.” Why? Because it “[emphasizes] that the moral status of the individual killed is comparable with that of a fetus (on which ‘abortions’ in the traditional sense are performed) rather than to that of a child.” The authors also do not agree with the term euthanasia for this practice as the best interest of the person who would be killed is not necessarily the primary reason his or her life is being terminated. In other words, it may be in the parents’ best interest to terminate the life, not the newborns.

    It’s a game of words to them. Instead of murder, they just call it after birth abortion. It’s the difference between stabbing a child in the head and suctioning out their brains two minutes earlier when they’re in the womb, or when they come out. They are just so evil and disgusting, they don’t need to hide it in the womb anymore.

    Earth’s Polar Ice Melting Less Than Thought

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 12:52 pm

    Nooooo, really?? It’ll take an ice age to convince the global warming geeks that they not only can’t predict future climate, climate has always changed, and it doesn’t work to fudge the data and lie through your teeth.

    Nearly 230 billion tons of ice is melting into the ocean from glaciers, ice caps, and mountaintops annually—which is actually less than previous estimates, according to new research by scientists at the University of Colorado, Boulder.

    If the amount of ice lost between 2003 and 2010 covered the United States, the whole country would be under one-and-a-half feet of water, or it’d fill Lake Erie eight times, researchers say. Ocean levels worldwide are rising about six tenths of an inch per year, according to researcher John Wahr.

    While vast quantities of ice melting into the ocean is not exactly good news, Wahr says, according to his team’s estimates, about 30 percent less ice is melting than previously thought.

    I’ve also heard many scientists make the claim that the ice caps are growing. So, why don’t we stop making policy based on made up science and focus on the real problems facing the world today. Novel, I know.

    Update: Yet another example: The Himalayas and nearby peaks have lost no ice in past 10 years, study shows

    Could it be that Algore doesn’t haven’t the faintest clue what he’s talking about? I think the proof for that condition is overwhelming and growing by the day.

    This is how World Wars Begin

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 9:19 am

    It’s sad to think, but we may see another world war in our lifetime, and sooner than you might think. Historically speaking, this is how they start.

    US, Russian French and British air and naval forces streamed to the Syrian and Iranian coasts over the weekend on guard for fresh developments at the two Middle East flashpoints.
    The Russian carrier Admiral Kuznetsov anchored earlier than planned at Syria’s Tartus port on the Mediterranean Sunday, Jan. 8, arriving together with the destroyer Admiral Chabanenko and frigate Yaroslav Mudry.
    To counter this movement, France consigned an air defense destroyer Forbin to the waters off Tartus.

    debkafile’s military sources report a buildup in the last 48 hours of western naval forces opposite Iran in the Persian Gulf and Arabian Sea in readiness for Tehran to carry out its threat to close the Strait of Hormuz.

    Britain has dispatched the HMS Daring, a Type 45 destroyer armed with new technology for shooting down missiles, to the Sea of Oman, due to arrive at the same time as the French Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier.

    Our sources report too that Saturday, the giant RQ-4 Global Hawk UAV, took off from the USS Stenning aircraft carrier for surveillance over the coasts of Iran. The Stennis and its strike group are cruising in the Sea of Oman at the entrance to the Strait of Hormuz after Tehran announced it would not be allowed to cross through.
    This was the first time the US has deployed unmanned aerial vehicles over Iran since its RQ-170 stealth drone was shot down by Iran on Dec. 4. It was also the first time the huge drone was ordered to take off from an aircraft carrier for a Broad Aerial Maritime Surveillance Mission (BAMS).

    Egyptians back in Tahrir for anti-military protests

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 12:05 pm

    The Islamist, terrorist group The Muslim Brotherhood is going back to the streets in Cairo without the leftists covering for them. It doesn’t appear they’re going to stop with the Arab mess until they’ve rested power from the military regime currently running the country.

    Hundreds of thousands of Egyptians rallied Friday in Cairo’s Tahrir square with Islamists in the forefront to protest against what they say are attempts by the country’s military rulers to designate themselves as the guardians of a new Egypt. It was one of the largest rallied in Egypt in recent months.

    Most rallies in Tahrir have been led by liberal- or left-leaning groups. But Friday’s rally was dominated by the country’s most organized political group, the Muslim Brotherhood, which has rarely come out in full force since the protests that forced President Hosni Mubarak to step down in February.

    The Brotherhood had until recently avoided confrontation with the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, but now warns of escalating its protest campaign if plans to give permanent political powers to the military are not scrapped.

    Magnitude 7.2 Earthquake Rocks Turkey

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 8:29 am

    Pray for those affected by this tragedy.

    Building codes are something the Turkish government might want to look into. With the Muslim Brotherhood taking over power in that country, I don’t think there’s much hope of that happening, though. It’s truly sad that so many Muslims in Arab countries have to suffer such senseless death and destruction.

    OWS anti-Americanism spreads to Tehran

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 7:44 am

    Good job Owsies. Now, instead of Iranians protesting their own government as they did in the early days of Obama’s Presidency (which he ignored), they’ve joined the occupiers in chanting “down with Wall Street”, and “death to the U.S.A. and capitalism”. Nothing like encouraging the biggest threat we face today to hate us even more. I wonder if the OWS crowd knows that Iran has ICBM’s that can reach the EAST coast?

    Iranian demonstrators gathered outside the Swiss embassy in Tehran Saturday, setting an Israeli flag on fire to show support for the ongoing Occupy Wall Street movement sweeping the U.S.

    They carried signs that bore familiar slogans, including, “The end of Wall Street” and “We are the 99 percent.“ Chants included ”Death to capitalism“ and ”Death to U.S.”

    Interesting that they show their solidarity with the New York mob by setting an Israeli flag on fire. I hope and pray that Americans are waking up to the character and absence of morals of these people.

    NATO Helping Cause Humanitarian Crisis in Libya

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 1:01 pm

    Where are all the anti-war progressives now. Under George Bush we heard wild accusations of hundreds of thousands of civilian deaths in Iraq. The Left was frothing at the mouth about the “unjust war”. Now we have crudely armed rebels wiping out civilians right and left in Libya, and what do we hear from the progressives? Crickets. They’re too busy throwing a fit on the Brooklyn Bridge and getting arrested.

    The fighters of Libya’s National Transitional Council, the rebel movement turned temporary government, have launched what they say is a “final assault” on Sirte — hometown of ousted dictator Colonel Gaddafi and one of the last redoubts of his supporters.

    Thousands of civilians have fled the town, but thousands more are trapped inside, unable or unwilling to leave. The Red Cross reports that conditions inside Sirte are deteriorating, with people dying in the main hospital due to shortages of medical supplies, fuel, and water; food is also said to be in short supply.

    There are no reliable casualty figures, although pro-Gaddafi forces — not surprisingly — are reporting hundreds of civilian deaths caused by both NTC fighters and NATO airstrikes. While those claims can’t be verified, with both rebel forces bombarding the town for the past couple weeks it’s inconceivable that civilians are not being killed and injured.

    No one can find a statistic for the civilian deaths, because it couldn’t be blamed on George Bush. They must protect dear leader at all costs.

    China shuts down rare earth metals trade

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 2:43 pm

    I’m so glad we’re in debt up to our eyeballs to a country like Communist China. If we hadn’t spent ourselves into oblivion, and then added to the fire with two years of Obama, we might be able to reason with the Chinese and prevent moves like this. When we’re paying ten dollars a light bulb, I wonder if the greenies will change their minds about having the government regulate our lighting? Probably not. They’ll just light candles and sing koombaya. Stock up folks. We squandered the easy life we had in America, sadly.

    In the name of fighting pollution, China has sent the price of compact fluorescent light bulbs soaring in the United States.

    By closing or nationalizing dozens of the producers of rare earth metals — which are used in energy-efficient bulbs and many other green-energy products — China is temporarily shutting down most of the industry and crimping the global supply of the vital resources.

    I think we can now count China out as a source of more money. We’ll be at QE15 before they wake up.

    Obama in statistical dead heat with GOP Candidates

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 8:31 pm

    It looks like just about anyone who wins the Republican primary has a shot at putting Obama out of a job. The question is, which Republican candidate do we really want occupying the Oval Office during these tumultuous times. I know I don’t want Ron Paul acting as the leader of the free world. Going from a self avowed Marxist to an isolationist doesn’t sound like progress to me. I would love to see Bachman rise to the top, stomp Obama at the polls, and send the liberal Palin-mockers spiraling into a fit of BDS. Have no doubt, if the first woman president happened to be a conservative and a…….everyone cover your ears…. pro life Christian with traditional conservative values, the far left would be seeking psychiatric help in droves…think Florida 2002.

    Sadly, I’m not sure the United States has changed its attitude about women in leadership positions enough, especially among elderly voters, to elect a woman as our President and Commander in Chief. Any serviceman will tell you that women have just as much responsibility, and fill just as many high ranking positions in every branch of the military, but there just aren’t that many civilians that are aware of that. Female troops no longer sit behind desks, or just work as nurses and secretaries for high ranking men. They fly aircraft worth millions, work as linguists in the middle of war zones, and the list goes on. If the brave women of our armed forces can risk their lives right along side men, they can certainly do a better job than Obama as our acting Commander in Chief, and leader of the greatest country on earth.

    Anyway, it will be interesting to see who rises to the top of the Republican Ticket. Lord, just don’t let it be Romney. Sure, he’s got the economic credentials to clean the floor with Obama in a debate, but can you picture the man as the Commander in Chief of our troops. If you can, think a bit on all of the wars we’re involved in right now, the instability in the Middle East, the “Arab Sring” that will likely become the “Arab nightmare”. Think about the alliances being formed between Arab countries like Syria, Iran, etc., and Russia, always there and willing to provide intelligence, arms, and a great deal of experience and technology gained from a long Cold War with the United States.

    The U.S. economy is in trouble, no doubt. But, the world is on the brink of something big that isn’t just about a global economic crisis, or one of many wars around the world. Even more importantly, it’s about a spiritual battle. If you want to be on the right side of that battle, choose your leaders wisely and be certain they will never turn their back on Israel – not just the country, but God’s chosen people, the Jews. Our battle is not against politicians or countries, but against spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12). We will need a president who talks, and LISTENS, to God, whether that be a man or a woman.

    Greece is Imploding – Signs of the Times

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 2:58 pm

    If you don’t think the financial collapse of Greece affects the U.S. and the rest of Europe, you don’t understand how truly global our economies are. Greece can’t pay it’s bills. It’s not just a budget problem that can be fixed, they are defaulting on their loans. And, guess who holds those loans that aren’t being paid back – the U.S. and Europe among others. The Dow is going to take a huge hit according to economists and the Euro is going to be hit hard.

    In other signs of the times, a recent lunar eclipse turned the moon blood red. There will indeed be signs in the skies, the sun (a huge solar flare affected temperatures globally), and the stars.

    Luke 21:25
    “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.

    Why do we have to experience God’s Wrath?

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 9:09 pm

    For those of you who might be wondering why devastating earthquakes, tsunamis, Tornadoes, Hurricanes and other natural disasters will, and are, taking so many lives, and bringing with them tragic suffering, remember these things:

    First, we are entering what Jesus called the “birth pains” that will signal His return. The hope that Jesus return gives us will sustain us through these difficult times.

    Second, there is a reason for these events that will ultimately save millions for eternity. God tells us in His Word that these natural disasters, global financial upheaval, and other tragedies are His final attempt to wake people from their complacency and show them that they too have a need for a higher power. Those who choose not to think about what happens after death, might suddenly start thinking about it. In some cases those Sunday school lessons we learned when we were children make a little more sense, and decades later a person might open their Bible and find Christ in those pages before the chaos of the end-times takes his life while he’s unprepared. When were speaking in terms of eternity, I think you’ll agree that one soul means a lot. We should all be praying for a revival like this world has never seen.

    Our Lord and Savior wants all of us to go to heaven to live out eternity with Him, but he also gave us free will (would you really want to live life without that?). He’s also given us thousands of years of evidence for His existence, and many chances to find Him, spread the gospel, and bring as many to Christ as we can in our life time. Yet, God weeps at the vast numbers who have ignored His message of love and salvation, and chosen, instead, to follow doctrines of men, and worship creation rather than the Creator. It is for this reason that He is desperately trying to get our attention, before it’s too late to avoid an eternity of torment just because we stubbornly and pridefully refused the simple gift of life God offers to every one of us. All He asks of us is that we believe in Him and love Him with all our heart. If you think of it, He asks no more than we expect of our spouses and our children. Search the scriptures and I promise that you will find the clarity and hope you’re looking for.

    Read these Bible verses to gain further understanding of God’s purpose for our current tumultuous times and then keep reading, starting with the New Testament:

    Matthew 24:7; Luke 21:25-26; Revelation 6:12; 11:13; 16:18

    Dollar in graver danger than the euro

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 6:28 pm

    Not surprising news. We know the global government we’ll see rise from the current world chaos will be occupy the same land that made up the Old Roman Empire (EU), so naturally the Euro will likely replace the U.S. as the world currency, and the only currency used in oil trading. Being that the US economy is propped up by this current, exclusive privilege to trade oil only in dollars, in much the same way that the dollar was once backed by gold, the dollar will soon be seeing a far more dismal status in the world economy. Which, also makes perfect sense if you know your end-times prophecy.
