Is this proof police fired rubber bullets at Occupy Oakland battle?

October 29, 2011 Comments off

This country is Satan’s model of democracy. We will take Mother Yahweh’s theocratic Rule any day of the week over Satan’s poorly run government that treats it citizens no better than the Egyptian government did in Moses day.

A revolt is coming, and as the United States takes more and more away from its own people while continuing to squander their future earnings in a massive collection of debt owed to its lenders, Satan’s throne will eventually collapse. China has a right as one of the U.S. largest lenders to inspect its gold reserve. Not if, but when that happens, the real truth of this country being bankrupt will come to the light.

  • Ex-Marine Scott Olsen now awake after being hit by projectile on Tuesday
  • Police claim they didn’t use rubber bullets during Occupy Oakland protest
  • But protester Shamus Collins says he has proof of bruising from bullets

It’s a serious bruise – and this protester claims it was caused by a policeman shooting a rubber bullet at him as he rushed to help an injured Iraq war veteran during this week’s Occupy Oakland protests.

Shamus Collins showed off his bruise to other protesters yesterday at the demonstrators’ new camp – and it is clear evidence to suggest the police did fire rubber bullets, despite their consistent denials.

He rushed to the aid of former Marine Scott Olsen, 24, who was left in a critical condition after being hit by a projectile believed to have been thrown by police on Tuesday at the California protests.

Mr Olsen, who won medals in Iraq, has become a rallying cry for the Occupy Wall Street movement across the U.S. – and the picture of Mr Collins at Frank H. Ogawa Plaza will only heighten their anger.

Officials are investigating exactly where the projectile that hit Mr Olsen came from, but police have denied using rubber bullets to calm the protests – although admitted firing bean bags.

However two other protesters suggested rubber bullets were used, reported the Washington Post.

Jen Lasher posted a picture on Twitter showing a bruise that looks like it was caused by a rubber bullet – and Schuyler Erle tweeted a photo of what he claimed was a rubber bullet found in Oakland.

Meanwhile, a crowd of 1,000 people, many holding candles, gathered on Thursday night in Oakland to hold a vigil in honour of Mr Olsen, who is hospitalised with a fractured skull.

Twitter users and protest websites have been declaring since the incident: ‘We are all Scott Olsen.’

Joshua Shepherd, 27, a Navy veteran who was standing nearby when Mr Olsen got struck, called it a cruel irony that he is fighting an injury in the country that he fought to protect. – DailyMail

Geologists closely monitoring surge in Arkansas earthquakes

October 29, 2011 Comments off

A battle of enormous conflict between the sons of light and the sons of darkness is being fought under the State of Missouri. It is at the notorious fault line that has caused disastrous upheaval in that State in the past.

The Arkansas Geological Survey says it is stepping up its monitoring of seismic activity in central Arkansas after dozens of small earthquakes in the region. Six minor quakes were recorded Friday near Quitman, the latest of more than 50 temblors in October. The Friday tremors began with a 2.0-magnitude quake around 7:45 a.m. and peaked with a 2.5 quake later in the morning. The shaking follows more than 1,000 earthquakes centered between Guy and Greenbrier from September 2010 to July of this year, when the Arkansas Oil and Gas Commission ordered four gas disposal wells shut down and voted to create a large moratorium area in which no future disposal wells could be drilled. Geologists said the activity – which involves injecting pressurized liquid into the ground – was likely contributing to the shaking. The quakes between Guy and Greenbrier tailed off significantly in August, but more quakes began occurring in October closer to Quitman. It sits about 10 miles northeast of Guy. That distance is potentially concerning, warned Scott Ausbrooks, geo-hazards supervisor for the Arkansas Geological Survey. The Quitman quakes are occurring along the same line as the Guy-Greenbrier ones, but there’s a miles-long gap between Guy and Quitman in which no quakes have been recorded. That might suggest that the tension is building, possibly leading up to a larger quake centered on that gap along the fault. A similar-sized gap occurred on the southern end of the Guy-Greenbrier fault and it in February unleashed a 4.7-magnitude quake, the largest of any of the recent tremors. Anytime there is a gap in seismicity along an active fault, it “bears watching,” Ausbrooks said. “I’m not saying that’s what it is,” he said. “I don’t want to scare people and I don’t want to say it’s going to happen. It’s just something we’re looking at.” The 4.7 tremor was felt across Arkansas and in neighboring states, though no injuries or major damage was reported. It and the other hundreds of smaller quakes that rumbled the area helped convince the Oil and Gas Commission to take action. So why is the shaking continuing if the drilling has stopped? Ausbrooks has a few ideas, though he said the phenomenon is still very much under investigation. Officials have already placed one temporary quake-monitoring station near Center Ridge and he said another will likely be placed elsewhere in the region in the next two weeks. “We’re kind of beefing back up because of this renewed seismicity,” he said. Ausbrooks said the shaking could be purely natural. Earthquakes continued for years after drilling ended at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal in Colorado, where an injection well is thought to have initially triggered seismic activity.  –Arkansas Online/Extinction Protocol

Why the latest eurozone bail-out is destined to fail within weeks

October 29, 2011 Comments off

Do you want Christ to take control of creation, including this planet? Or do you want to remain under a satanic empire that cannot even feed the masses adequately? Satan offers no real incentive to remain in his family. He cannot offer you good health, even though he tries, or a cure for dreaded diseases, even though he has mankind searching for cures. Make no mistake. Satan wants his empire to flourish and be like Yahweh’s spirit realm and the rest of creation in the expanse, but the way he leads, and the factions within his family, it cannot be achieved.

As someone who works in financial services, I follow the markets – in the West, across Asia and the entire world – closer than most. Since the Bear Stearns collapse in March 2008, through the demise of Lehman Brothers and its ghastly aftermath, much of my professional life has been dominated by the angry flashing of those little lights on a Bloomberg screen.

In recent years, the violent gyrations on financial markets have been deeply discomforting, causing angst among market professionals, like me – but that is the least significant aspect. For those little lights represent, of course, the ebbs and flows of cash which, in turn, determines the fate of real businesses. It is at the sharp end of employment and livelihoods, dispossessed homes and broken families that the human impact of financial turbulence is most keenly felt.

So, yes, I want such turbulence, which will never be fully-eradicated, nor should it be in a free-market system, to now lessen to more manageable levels. Yet the responses of our politicians to recent financial troubles – hiding behind complexity and kicking the can down the road – have not only failed to temper the volatility, but have actually made it much worse.

Last week’s eurozone “agreement”, for all the related fanfare, was a case in point. Far from making the situation clearer, allowing investors to make considered assessments, this latest announcement made Western Europe’s grotesque debt crisis even more acute, sowing further infectious spores of confusion.

The deal itself, unveiled dramatically in the early hours of Thursday, was met with the now obligatory “relief rally”. The FTSE All-World equity index soared 4.1pc, helped by signs of renewed US economic growth. European bank shares spiked no less than 12pc on Thursday, as traders recognised, for all the official obfuscation, the latest dollop of government largesse.

By late Thursday, though, and certainly on Friday, the warning signs were there. Global bond markets, by character more sober and smarter than the excitable equity guys, were voting against the deal. This is alarming. For it is only by selling more bonds that the eurozone’s deeply indebted governments can roll-over their enormous liabilities and keep the show on the road.

Some say Western governments shouldn’t “accept” what the market says. “Who do these trading people think they are,” I hear from the lips of the educated but financially-illiterate political elite. Let’s be clear – if global bond markets stop lending to a number of large Western economies, we are in the realms of unpaid state wages and pensions, transport chaos and closures of schools and hospitals – sparking the prospect of serious civil unrest. Forgive my intemperate tone, but these are the dangers we face. And I’m afraid the only rational response to Thursday’s announcement is that the probability of such undesirable outcomes has just been increased.

European leaders have reached an “agreement”, we were told, with the private holders of Greek debt, who now accept a 50pc write-down on their stakes. This is predicated on an additional €120bn (£105bn) cash-injection by EU member states and the IMF. By paying bond-holders less, and making other savings, the hope is that Greece can cut its sovereign debt from 150pc of GDP to 120pc in the next few years.

This deal was presented as a “victory” by the eurocrats. After all, back in July those nasty private creditors agreed only to a 21pc “haircut” on their Greek debt. The deal is “voluntary”, though, nothing having been decided except the “50pc haircut” headline. In reality, by bargaining hard over coupons and maturities – how much the bonds will pay annually, and for how long – those who so unwisely lent money to Greece (eager to reap high yields, while always expecting a bail-out) will get a much sweeter deal. This is the discussion that will take place, behind closed doors, during the coming months. But that sweeter deal will need to be paid for with yet more sovereign borrowing, by some eurozone government or other, plus further sack-loads of taxpayers’ cash.

It is telling that Greek bond-holders themselves were on Friday reassuring their investors that the reduction in the net present value of their stakes, compared with the “21pc haircut” deal, “will not be overly onerous”. In addition, the July agreement, while also “voluntary”, included a 90pc creditors’ participation. Thursday’s variant cited no such number.

So, the centre-piece of last week’s “package” is far less decisive than meets the eye. It was, in fact, singularly indecisive. The hope that Greece will clean-up its balance sheet autonomously now relies even more on a privatization programme that is already laughably behind schedule. So the moral hazard will go on, making it tougher still for the governments of Portugal, Ireland and the other eurozone “peripheries” to sell to their electorates the virtues of fiscal responsibility. These are not clever-clever academic points. I’m pointing-out, quite simply, what the bond markets will have noticed.

Having said all that, the prospect of “haircuts”, however half-hearted, now looms over eurozone sovereign bond-holders, not least fragile European banks. So Thursday’s announcement also stressed that the €440bn (£386bn) euro European Financial Stability Facility would be “levered”, allowing it to borrow to make it bigger. This is supposed to allow the eurocrats to raise cash without having to trouble national parliaments, given that they’re likely to refuse.

The question of who will lend to the EFSF, on whose collateral, and who will ultimately repay the loans, was barely addressed last week. Such tricky questions will apparently be answered at the next European summit in December. Meanwhile, the fundamental disagreement between France and Germany regarding who should take the biggest losses – eurozone governments or private creditors – remains unresolved. Since Thursday’s announcement, though, Germany’s powerful constitutional court has issued an injunction requiring the country’s full Parliament to approve any EFSF bond-buying.

What is needed, urgently, is a clean, transparent Greek default – allowing this flailing semi-developed economy to leave the eurozone, re-establish a weaker drachma and regain its self-respect. Portugal should leave too, its membership of the same currency bloc as Germany is as absurd, and self-defeating, as that of Greece. There would be further market turmoil, yes, but a few more months of volatility, leading to an ultimately more stable outcome, is surely better than the current situation where the entire world is living in fear of a massive “euroquake”.

The eurocrats, of course, lack the guts to trim back monetary union to a more manageable size. Too much face would be lost. So “euroquake” fears, once viewed as outlandish, are gaining pace. Despite Thursday’s deal, and all the reassurances of a “durable solution”, the Italian government on Friday paid 6.06pc for 10-year money, up from just 5.86pc a month ago and a euro-era high. Such borrowing costs are disastrous, given that Rome must roll-over €300bn of its €1,900bn debt in 2012 alone. A default by Italy, the eurozone’s third-biggest economy, and the eighth-largest on earth, would make Lehman look like a picnic.

The eurozone must be consolidated. World leaders should similarly force European banks to disclose their losses, we all take the hit and then we move on. Instead, we are served-up, in ever more complex variants, the same “extend and pretend” non-solutions. It gives me no pleasure to write this, but I give this deal two weeks. – Telegraph

New York gets more than inch of snow in October for the first time EVER

October 29, 2011 Comments off

Daniel 2:21 “He changes the times and seasons; He removes kings and establishes kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.”

1 Peter 1:5 “who are being protected by God’s power through faith for a salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.”

Something to be revealed – A SALVATION by means of the LOZ.

Matthew 24:22 ” Unless those days were limited, no one would survive. But those days will be limited because of the elect.”

Dictionary: “limited >adjective 1 restricted in size, amount, or extent. 2 not great in ability. 3 (of a monarchy or government) exercised under limitations of power prescribed by a constitution. 4 (Limited) Brit. denoting a limited company.”

The AMOUNT of days are cut short.

If Yahweh did not cut the time short, NO ONE WOULD SURVIVE. Why so? Mankind is a wild card that would destroy itself with no help from anyone. Even Satan, if left alone, could not save mankind from its own self. Mankind’s disposition is destruction. Without Yahweh’s guidance, they would eventually kill themselves. But even so, only a remnant will be harvested from this crop of evil. The rest are doomed to eternal death by the hand of Yahweh.

  • Earliest New York City one-inch snowfall since records began
  • More than 250,000 customers lost power in Pennsylvania and Maryland
  • More than 1,000 flights in or out of America cancelled
  • Experts predict up to 10 inches of snow to fall across North East
  • Only fourth time since Civil War that snow has fallen in NYC in October
  • Snowstorms already hitting Massachusetts and New England
  • Parts of Connecticut could get a foot of snow this weekend

New York has today been hit by more than one inch of snowfall before Halloween for the first time ever – with experts predicting much more on the way.

A classic nor’easter is chugging up the East Coast at an unusually early period and expected to dump up to 10 inches throughout the region.

More than 1.5 million homes have lost power in the storm.

Some places in mid-Atlantic states saw more than half a foot of snow and approximately 250,000 customers lost power in Pennsylvania and Maryland, requiring utility crews from Ohio and Kentucky to fix it.

More than 1,000 flights into or out of the United States were cancelled today, with New York particularly affected. JFK airport had around 230 called off by 5pm local time.

Around 60 million people will experience the rare October snowstorm, which should unleash heavy, wet snow and wind, causing fallen tree branches and potential travel chaos.

This weekend looks set to see huge amounts of sleet and snow covering the North East, invariably causing power outages and travel chaos. Some areas bracing for up to a foot of snow.

By 2pm, 1.3 inches of snow had fallen in Central Park; never before in October has an inch of snow fallen on a given day in New York City, AccuWeather reported.

The website reported that 10 inches in Ogletown, Pennsylvania, 9.5 inches in Frostburg, Maryland, and 8.5 inches in Lost River, West Virginia.

New York has received measurable snow before Halloween only three times since 1869 – and never more than one inch, as happened today.

The heaviest snow, though, is forecast for later in the day on Sunday in the Massachusetts Berkshires, the Litchfield Hills in northwestern Connecticut, southwestern New Hampshire and the southern Green Mountains. – DailyMail

Federal Reserve Now Backstopping $75 Trillion Of Bank Of America’s Derivatives Trades

October 21, 2011 Comments off

Psalm 94:20 “Can a corrupt throne— one that creates trouble by law— become Your ally?”

Countries, especially the USA, it creates laws that create trouble or problems for its subjects. They claim to be your ally and benefactor, but are in fact corrupt. Satan’s throne was corrupt from day one that he sinned. He carried over that corruption to his children of this old world, and they like him, Satan’s elite, they have an agenda to rule over all nations and to have mankind as their slave class. It has been tested by the banking system, and manipulated by the thieves of Wall Street. All are corrupt.

This story from Bloomberg just hit the wires this morning. Bank of America is shifting derivatives in its Merrill investment banking unit to its depository arm, which has access to the Fed discount window and is protected by the FDIC.

This means that the investment bank’s European derivatives exposure is now backstopped by U.S. taxpayers. Bank of America didn’t get regulatory approval to do this, they just did it at the request of frightened counterparties. Now the Fed and the FDIC are fighting as to whether this was sound. The Fed wants to “give relief” to the bank holding company, which is under heavy pressure.

This is a direct transfer of risk to the taxpayer done by the bank without approval by regulators and without public input. You will also read below that JP Morgan is apparently doing the same thing with $79 trillion of notional derivatives guaranteed by the FDIC and Federal Reserve.

What this means for you is that when Europe finally implodes and banks fail, U.S. taxpayers will hold the bag for trillions in CDS insurance contracts sold by Bank of America and JP Morgan. Even worse, the total exposure is unknown because Wall Street successfully lobbied during Dodd-Frank passage so that no central exchange would exist keeping track of net derivative exposure.

This is a recipe for Armageddon. Bernanke is absolutely insane. No wonder Geithner has been hopping all over Europe begging and cajoling leaders to put together a massive bailout of troubled banks. His worst nightmare is Eurozone bank defaults leading to the collapse of the large U.S. banks who have been happily selling default insurance on European banks since the crisis began. – The European Union Times

Solar Flares 2012 : Is It The Sun’s Final Assault on Earth?

October 17, 2011 Comments off

At the close of Armageddon, Yahweh will cleanse this planet – burst this planet with solar radiated heat and completely obliterate all carcasses and remove the footprint of Satan. Anything living that might escape our swords will be melted away, even if they have hidden beneath the earth’s crust.

The earth is to later be renewed by Yahweh. The remnant will be placed back upon this planet. A new creation will take place as the animal kingdom is replenished.

Everything will line up in the heavens for the coming events that are destined to take place. The SUN typifies the SON in relation to becoming center stage in the final conclusion of this old wicked world.

Solar Flares and 2012 are both hot topics among many people at the moment. Everyone wants to know if the Mayan Calendar, which predicts the end of the world as we know it on December 21, 2012, is accurate or not. Not to promote fear and panic, but it appears as though it could be.

NASA has been reporting for months that the solar flares of 2012 will be the worst that Earth has ever seen. A strong X class flare could easily wipe out all telecommunications across the us or globally for months or even years. Will this be something that we see in the next calendar year?

According to Richard Fisher, who is the director of the Heliophysics division at NASA, scientists need to learn more to protect all of Earth’s inhabitants from certain doom.

“Obviously, the sun is Earth’s life blood,” he said. “To mitigate possible public safety issues, it is vital that we better understand extreme space weather events caused by the sun’s activity.”

Those few words say a lot about how interested NASA is in the coming solar flares. Of course, they wouldn’t tell us if 2012 was in fact the end of the world for fear of creating mass panic. Can you imagine if they announced it? People would start looting, killing and not caring one bit about anyone or anything. It would be absolute chaos and many would die. So, it’s probably best to keep it a secret, even though it’s pretty obvious that something big is brewing for 2012 — and not just according to the Mayan Calendar.

Though the Mayan’s predicted something happening in 2012 thousands of years ago, NASA is also predicting something big themselves for the coming year.

“We’re entering Solar Cycle 24. For reasons not fully understood, CMEs in even-numbered solar cycles (like 24) tend to hit Earth with a leading edge that is magnetized north. Such a CME (coronal mass ejection) should open a breach and load the magnetosphere with plasma just before the storm gets underway. It’s the perfect sequence for a really big event,” said Jimmy Raeder, a NASA researcher.

With all of the hype of the Mayan Calendar and now NASA’s new information, do you believe the Earth will be hit by a massive solar flare in 2012? If so, are you ready to withstand the aftermath? – TechnologyGather.com

Occupy Protests Go Global – Anarchy Reigns in the Streets

October 15, 2011 Comments off
A plan of action: It is now wise if each of you have not already done so, to purchase dry products such as rice, beans, canned foods, bottled water, first aid kit and be prepared to remain in seclusion for a period of time. When things come to a head and break loose upon this Country, those things will not be available for a considerable length of time. The United States has a secret plan to reopen closed military bases for incarceration of those demonstrating against the United States government. For you own present welfare, please do not take part in any of the coming surges of unrest. An iron fist is what awaits those that rise up. Oppression of Satan’s unjust world is only the beginning of the nightmare awaiting mankind, but deliverance will come through Yahweh’s army of heavenly hosts. We are not blind to your dilemma or your cries of desperation. As things culminate into the mire of a feeling of desolation, Yahweh the Warrior will rise up and deliver Her people. Be patient and ever diligent towards your coming deliverance from Satan’s hell on earth.

Hundreds of hooded, masked protesters rampaged through Rome in some of the worst violence in the Italian capital for years Saturday, torching cars and breaking windows during a larger peaceful protest against elites blamed for economic downturn.

Police repeatedly fired tear gas and water cannon in attempts to disperse them but the clashes with a minority of violent demonstrators stretched into the evening, hours after tens of thousands of people in Rome joined a global “day of rage” against bankers and politicians.

Smoke rose over many parts of the neighborhood between the Colosseum and St John’s Basilica, forcing many residents and peaceful demonstrators to run into buildings and churches for shelter as militant protesters ran wild.

After police managed to push the well-organized radicals away from the St. John’s area, they ravaged a major thoroughfare, the Via Merulana — building barricades with garbage cans and setting the netting of the scaffolding of a building on fire.

Discontent is smoldering in Italy over high unemployment, political paralysis and 60 billion euros ($83 billion) of austerity measures that have raised taxes and the cost of health care.

The violence at times resembled urban guerrilla warfare as protesters hurled rocks, bottles and fireworks at police, who responded by repeatedly charging the demonstrators.

Around 70 people were injured, according to news reports, including one man who tried to stop the protesters from throwing bottles.

Rome Mayor Gianni Alemanno blamed the violence on “a few thousand thugs from all over Italy, and possibly from all over Europe, who infiltrated the demonstration.” Some Rome museums were forced to close down and at least one theater canceled a show.

Protesters also set fire to a building, causing the roof to collapse, reports said. The Defense Ministry denied reports it was one of its offices.

Premier Silvio Berlusconi called the violence a “worrying signal,” and added that the perpetrators “must be found and punished.”

Berlusconi barely survived a confidence vote Friday, with many questioning his leadership. Italy’s debt burden is second only to Greece in the 17-nation eurozone and the country is rapidly becoming a focus of concern in Europe’s debt crisis.

At one point radicals surrounded a police van near St John’s Basilica, pelted it with rock and bottles, and set it on fire. The two occupants managed to escape, television footage showed.

Some peaceful demonstrators also clashed with the militants and turned some of them over to police.

A day of worldwide protests inspired by the Occupy Wall Street movement in the United States began Saturday with the hundreds of people gathering in cities from Japan and South Korea to Australia.

Organizers had hoped to see non-violent demonstrations in 951 cities in Asia, Europe, South America and Africa in addition to every state in the United States.

Frankfurt

In the continental Europe’s financial capital, some 5,000 people protested in front of the European Central Bank , while in London, around 500 people marched from St. Paul’s cathedral to the nearby stock exchange. A website called 15october.net urged the people of the world to “rise up” and “claim their rights and demand a true democracy.”

“Now it is time for all of us to join in a global non violent protest. The ruling powers work for the benefit of just a few, ignoring the will of the vast majority and the human and environmental price we all have to pay. This intolerable situation must end,” the website says.

Sydney

About 2,000 people, including representatives of Aboriginal groups, communists and trade unionists, protested outside the central Reserve Bank of Australia.

“I think people want real democracy,” said Nick Carson, a spokesman for OccupyMelbourne.Org. “They don’t want corporate influence over their politicians. They want their politicians to be accountable.”

The crowd cheered a speaker who shouted, “We’re sick of corporate greed! Big banks, big corporate power standing over us and taking away our rights!”

How does a group like Occupy Wall Street get anything done?

Danny Lim, a 67-year-old immigrant from Malaysia, said he moved to Australia 48 years ago in search of opportunities.

Now he no longer trusts the government to look after his best interests. He thinks Australia’s government has become too dependent upon the U.S. for direction.

“The big man — they don’t care. They screw everyone. Eventually we’ll mortgage our children away,” Lim said.

Tokyo

Where the ongoing nuclear crisis dominates public concerns, about 200 people joined the global protests Saturday.

Under the light drizzle, the participants marched outside the Tokyo Electric Power Co., which operates the tsunami-hit Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant, chanting anti-nuclear slogans, while opposing the U.S.-led Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade bloc that Japan is considering joining.

“No to nuclear power,” the marchers chanted as they held up banners.

Taiwan

Over 100 people gathered at the Taipei 101 skyscraper, home to the stock exchange , chanting “we are

Taiwan’s 99 percent”, saying economic growth had only benefited companies while middle-class salaries barely covered soaring housing, education and healthcare costs.

They found support from a top businessmen, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp Chairman Morris Chang, who told reporters in the northern city of Hsinchu that Taiwan’s income gap was a serious issue.

“I’ve been against the gap between rich and poor,” Chang said. “The wealth of the top 1 percent has increased very fast in the past 20, 30 years. ‘Occupy Wall Street’ is a reaction to that. We have to take the issue seriously…”

Manila

About 100 members of various groups under the Philippine left-wing alliance, Bayan, marched on the U.S. Embassy Saturday morning to express support for the Occupy Wall Street protests in the United States and to denounce “U.S. imperialism” and U.S.-led wars and aggression.

They carried a large banner that said, “Resist imperialist plunder, state repression and wars of aggression,” and another expressing “Solidarity action for Occupy Wall Street.”

They also chanted “U.S. troops, out now!” in reference to the presence of hundreds of U.S. soldiers, mostly in the southern Philippines, involved in anti-terrorism training of Filipino troops. One man carried a placard saying “Genuine people’s democracy lives in the streets.”

South Korea

In South Korea, activists gathered on the streets of Seoul.

The Korea Herald newspaper reported that a coalition of 30 local civic groups planned to hold a two-day protest in the main financial district of Yeouido and other parts of the capital.

The protesters, who have adopted slogans and imagery used by those in the U.S., say the rally is designed to motivate “99 percent of Koreans” to complain about the actions of the wealthiest “1 percent,” the paper said.

“The situation is the same in South Korea (as the U.S.), where the financial institutions have speculated to earn high profits in a short time.

The protesters want compensation for people who lost money in the banking crisis.

Seoul police warned that damaging public facilities, occupying roads and assaulting police officers would not be tolerated, the Herald said.

“We will arrest those who stage illegal protests on the spot and also seek legal action even after the rally ends,” the Seoul Metropolitan Agency said in a release, the paper reported.

The call for mass protests around the world Saturday originated a month ago from a meeting in Spain, where mostly young and unemployed people angry at the country’s handling of the economic crisis have been demonstrating for months.

It was reposted on the Occupy Wall Street website and has been further amplified through social media.

London

Protesters in London vowed to occupy the London Stock Exchange Saturday. Nights of rioting rocked the British capital in August after the fatal police shooting of a 29-year-old man.

“We have people from all walks of life joining us every day,” said Spyro, one of those behind a Facebook page in London which has grown to some 12,000 followers in a few weeks.

Spyro, a 28-year-old who has a well-paid job and did not want to give his full name, summed up the main target of the global protests as “the financial system.”

Canada

Protests were planned for Saturday in cities including Montreal and Vancouver. In Toronto, demonstrators plan to gather at Canada’s main stock exchange.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper said he doubted Canadians would be as angry as their neighbors to the south as Canadian banks have not received a U.S.-type bailout.

He declined to comment when asked if he was concerned about a possible repeat of street violence that Toronto experienced at the G-20 summit last year.

New York

In the United States, the hundreds of protesters at Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park — site of the original Occupy protest — called for more people to join them.

Politicians in both President Barack Obama’s Democratic Party and the Republican Party struggled to come up with a response to the growing nationwide movement.

Democrats have been largely supportive but also wary of endorsing criticism of Obama’s rescue of big banks in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis. The bank bailout was launched in the last months of President George W. Bush’s administration.

Republicans at first criticized the demonstrations but have shifted their tone in recent days.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor warned of “growing mobs” but later said the protesters were “justifiably frustrated.” - MSNBC

Family Research Council Calls For Prayers Against Occupy Wall Street Protesters

October 15, 2011 1 comment

Isaiah 17:12 [ Judgment against the Nations ] Ah! The roar of many peoples— they roar like the roaring of the seas. The raging of the nations— they rage like the raging of mighty waters.

No one will halt the roar of the people, at least not until Satan makes his appearance as prophesied and claims to have the answer to mankind’s dilemma.

The Family Research Council’s “Values Voter Summit” recently wrapped up. This year’s gathering of more than 3,000 Christian conservatives had plenty of hate controversy.

On Romney’s Mormon religion:

Talk show host, Bryan Fischer said, A President “needs to be a main of sincere, authentic, genuine Christian faith.”

Southern Baptist Convention leader, Pastor Robert Jeffress, called Mormonism “a cult.”

A straw poll was conducted of Republican Presidential candidates. The clear winner was Ron Paul, but leaders were skeptical.

More controversy arose after the much anticipated straw poll vote was tallied. There were gasps in the ballroom when Congressman Ron Paul, a Libertarian, was announced the winner by a decisive margin. Hundreds of Paul supporters attended the event just long enough to hear their candidate speak and cast their vote, then left. Ideally, the straw poll is intended for voters who attend the entire event and hear all the candidates.The attire of some of the “in-and-out” voters (one attendee wore a shirt that said “Atheist and Proud of It”) suggested not all were “values voters” (Read Tony Perkins’ report on VVS HERE).

Of course, abortion was a big issue with all the attendees, but possibly best summed up by Fischer,

“We need a president who sincerely believes in the God-given, inalienable right to life and who believes that that right begins at the moment of conception. This means a president who would not even think of appointing to the Supreme Court a judge who does not believe that Roe v. Wade was not only unconstitutional but profoundly immoral. A president who believes that no judge is qualified to sit on traffic court, let alone on the Supreme Court, if he does not understand that the primary purpose of law and government is to protect innocent human beings from violence at every stage of life.”

On gay rights and same sex marriage, Perkins had this to say:

“Last weekend, speaking at a fundraiser for an organization that is working to redefine the family and overturn the laws that protect marriage and morality, this is what the president said. He said the 2012 elections “are a contest of values. That’s what’s at stake here. The fundamental debate about who we are as a nation.” You know what? That’s the first time I’ve agreed with this president. This is a contest of values.”

Presidential contender, Rick Santorum went even further:

“You want to have a successful economy? The single thing you can do is to nurture and support the institution of marriage and fathers taking responsibility for their children, building that solid foundation upon which society rests. And that means standing up and defending the institution of marriage as between one man and one woman, not backing away from it.”

One of the newest themes involved the media…specifically, they want to pray away the negative coverage they have gotten.

FRC President Tony Perkins offered this perspective: We clearly recognize the fact that Mormon theology includes doctrines that are distinct from Evangelical theology and Catholic theology. At the same time, the goal of the values voter movement is not to build a “National Church.” Our goal is to build a national coalition based on the shared values of respecting human life, strengthening natural marriage, defending religious liberty, promoting personal and fiscal responsibility, and maintaining our national security. When we successfully work together with those who share our values, we are preserving and strengthening our religious liberty, so that we can freely share the truth of the gospel with everyone.

Perhaps most surprisingly, the organizers had strong words and prayers for the Occupy Wall Street Protesters:

The sixties-style tent city protest, which seemed to fizzle after its September 17 launch, now has momentum and is expanding to cities across the nation, including Washington, D.C. Organizers of the movement (e.g. ACORN, labor unions, and other far-left leaders and groups) have been given new life by the sycophant liberal media, Hollywood celebrities and leading Democrats in Washington, including President Obama. Six arrests were made when one hundred demonstrators conducted an illegal demonstration inside a Senate office building (see Gullible, Who’s Behind it?, Official Website, Senate Building).

  • May God prevent these radical organizers from stirring revolution and distracting voters from the elections and keeping watch on our elected leaders (Num 16:1-14; Is 1:4-6; Pr 12:11-12; Mt 26:41; Eph 4:28; 1 Tim 6:3-10; Heb 13:5-6). – AddictingInfo.org

Arab Spring, Israeli Isolation – Analysis

October 14, 2011 Comments off

The United States and the EU has brokered a deal with the Palestinian leadership to divide Jerusalem with them. This will cause Israel to go on the defense and make an attempt at militarily halting the divide. The EU will try to force Israel to comply.

Is this Joel’s prophecy coming to pass? Yes. The pawns are in place to bring forth the prophetic events to fruition. Israel will be swarmed by a military force that is compared to a swarm of locust. Know this: Each prophecy has a literal meaning and a spiritual meaning. Two things coupled together that forms the coupler.

Joel 1:4 4 What the devouring locust has left, the swarming locust has eaten; what the swarming locust has left, the young locust has eaten; and what the young locust has left, the destroying locust has eaten.

With the Arab uprisings gradually reconfiguring the regional political landscape, Israel is finding itself increasingly isolated. For at least a decade, Israel has identified Iran as its main strategic nemesis, but the Arab spring has rekindled simmering tensions between Israel on one hand, and Arab states as well as Turkey on the other.The ongoing conflict within Syria could also jeopardize the implicit modus vivendi between Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Israel, paving the way for a potential conflict in the future. The whole Arab landscape has actually shifted: the Hezbollah faction is playing a central role in Lebanese politics; the Egyptian public is demanding a reassessment of the 1979 Egypt-Israel peace treaty; and the Jordanian government is facing growing domestic political pressure. Israel is grappling with a totally new emerging regional order.

Meanwhile, Iran has continued with its nuclear enrichment, meanwhile enhancing its ballistic missile capabilities. Palestine, bolstered by growing international support, is pushing for statehood, circumventing the Israeli-dictated “peace process.” Domestically, large demonstrations have shaken major Israeli cities, as people across the political and economic spectrum demand crucial economic and social reforms. There are also growing signs of splits within the Israeli bureaucracy over plans to attack Iran.

Therefore, unless the Netanyahu administration makes necessary changes in its policies, the country might emerge as the biggest loser of the Arab uprisings. This is the perfect opportunity for the Obama administration to redeem itself by pressuring Israel to make necessary compromises, re-evaluate its inhumane policies toward Gaza, and make necessary reforms before it’s too late. The clock is ticking fast. – Eurasia Review

Up to 7,000 held in Libyan prisons, U.N. says

October 14, 2011 Comments off

Do you think this sort of thing could not or would not happen here in the U.S.? Time will tell – The United States has a secret plan to reopen closed military bases for incarceration of those demonstrating against the United States government. For you own present welfare, please do not take part in any of the coming surges of unrest. An iron fist is what awaits those that rise up. Oppression of Satan’s unjust world is only the beginning of the nightmare awaiting mankind, but deliverance will come through Yahweh’s army of heavenly hosts. We are not blind to your dilemma or your cries of desperation. As things culminate into the mire of a feeling of desolation, Yahweh the Warrior will rise up and deliver Her people. Be patient and ever diligent towards your coming deliverance from Satan’s hell on earth.

Up to 7,000 prisoners are held in dozens of makeshift detention centers in Libya more than two months after rebel forces toppled Muammar Gaddafi, amid serious allegations and some evidence of torture, the United Nations said on Friday.

Transitional authorities lack a clear system for screening and registering detainees, thus opening the door to ill-treatment, Mona Rishmawi, a senior official of the U.N. human rights office, told a briefing after a weeklong visit to Libya.

Prisoners include people arrested at checkpoints without identity papers, suspected mercenaries from several regions, pro-Gaddafi fighters captured on the battlefield or people whose names appeared on lists of people to be rounded up, she said.

“There are thousands of people who are being held, we are talking about a large number. It could be up to 7,000,” said Rishmawi, who is in charge of the office’s rule of law branch.

“The majority of these people have not gone through a (judicial) process. This of course is a recipe for abuse. There are indications of very serious issues going on.”

In all, there are believed to be 67 makeshift detention centers across Libya, compared with a few central prisons during the 42-year-rule of Gaddafi, she added.

The International Committee of the Red Cross has visited at least 40 Libyan prison facilities, ICRC spokesman Steven Anderson told Reuters on Friday. Its confidential findings about conditions are shared only with detaining authorities.

Amnesty International issued a report on Wednesday saying Libya’s new rulers were in danger of repeating human rights abuses commonplace under Gaddafi. The NTC said it would look into the report.

“EVIDENCE OF TORTURE”

Hanny Megally, head of the U.N. human rights office’s Asia, Pacific, Middle East and North Africa branch, led the mission to Libya. They met ministers of the National Transitional Council, as well as activists and lawyers, and visited some prisons but did not speak with inmates.

“…We actually believe that the situation in the prisons is that there is ill-treatment, there are allegations and evidence of torture. Yes, I can say that,” Rishmawi said. – Reuters

Fed Plotting to Monitor Critics, Tailor Propaganda

October 14, 2011 Comments off

The United States government has been monitoring the internet for years. This is nothing new. Trying to decipher the mood of its masses is how it makes future preparatory decisions. When the vault at Fort Knox was inspected in the 70′s by a the U.S. Congress, what they viewed was what they believed to be gold bars. But, can you trust your eyes, or must you see what is beneath that which sparkles? The 2009 expose of the faked bars by the independent London Bullion Market Association revealed all that glitters is not always what it first appeared to be. Congress has been fooled once, but will it allow itself to be fooled again?

The collapse of the United States monetary system will cause a domino effect around the globe. The only way to rectify the world’s failing economic collapse is for an international currency to be put into place and under the scrutiny of an independent reserve that monitors all holdings. 

The Federal Reserve is seeking contractors to build a tool that will monitor and analyze blogs, news reports, and social-media chatter about the central bank and its policies, with a goal of being able to use “public relations” strategies to counter the growing barrage of negative publicity. But critics quickly added to the institution’s troubled image as the news spread by lambasting the half-baked scheme as “Orwellian” spying and “intimidation.”

The Fed’s “Request for Proposal” explains that the institution needs a platform to “monitor billions of conversations” and “identify and reach out to key bloggers and influencers.” Information collected will be used to measure the effectiveness of the central bank’s “public relations” and “communication strategies” — known in laymen’s terms as propaganda operations.

“There is need for the Communications Group to be timely and proactively aware of the reactions and opinions expressed by the general public as it relates to the Federal Reserve and its actions on a variety of subjects,” the document states. News outlets, Facebook, Twitter, forums, blogs, YouTube, and other social media platforms will all be targeted.

“A system like this is not cheap,” noted The Economic Collapse Blog, which called the Fed’s plan a “very creepy” part of a disturbing trend. “What the ‘authorities’ want is for us to shut up, sit in our homes and act as if nothing wrong is happening. Meanwhile, they seem determined to watch us more closely than ever.”

The system being sought, which the Fed calls a “Sentiment Analysis And Social Media Monitoring Solution,” should be able to gauge the sentiment and tone expressed by the public. And it must be able to gather information from different countries and regions in multiple languages.

“The solution must provide real-time monitoring of relevant conversations,” the Fed demanded, saying it should also be able to offer summaries or overviews of public sentiment on a variety of topics. An “alerting mechanism” that automatically sends out notifications based on a “predefined trigger” must be incorporated in the system, too.

Other demands listed by the central bank include the ability to track the reach and spread of its propaganda, “handle crisis situations,” and identify emerging trends in Fed-related discussions online. The desired system would also be able to differentiate between “influencers versus followers,” and gauge the true impact of specific anti-Fed criticism beyond simply comparing online traffic data generated by a particular source.

The financial analysis site ZeroHedge, apparently the first media outlet to uncover and expose the scheme, fiercely ridiculed the central bank and its tactics. But it also noted that “the Fed has just entered the counterespionage era and will be monitoring everything written about it anywhere in the world.”

The central bank, however, is not alone. Numerous critics of the plan have compared it to President Obama’s recently unveiled “Attack Watch,” a service for Americans to report negative statements about the administration or its policies. The citizen-snitching operation, as it has been dubbed, also prompted ridicule — but grave concern as well.

And as The New American reported in March, the U.S. military was exposed earlier this year seeking a tool that would allow a single government agent to operate multiple fake social-media characters simultaneously. The objective, similar to the Fed’s desired “solution,” is to monitor critics and influence public opinion through propaganda.

Analysts said authorities’ growing interest in tracking and manipulating public sentiment expressed online is a sign that the alternative media is becoming increasingly powerful as the “mainstream media” continues to implode. Others said the efforts also appear to be desperate intimidation tactics aimed at quieting the growing wave of public outrage aimed at the Fed, the undeclared wars, and the Obama administration.

Fury over the privately owned central banking system and its policies — multi-trillion-dollar secret bailouts, mass manipulation of markets, wild money printing, resisting a government audit, and more — has been steadily rising for years. Official documents released in 2009 revealed that even the U.S. military was concerned about the growing “End the Fed” movement. – The New American

Return of the Iceland ash cloud? Fears grow of Katla volcanic eruption

October 14, 2011 Comments off

Psalm 68:33 “to Him who rides in the ancient, highest heavens. Look, He thunders with His powerful voice!”

The thunder you hear in thunder storms, that is Mother’s voice. Since She is nature in the raw, you know when She is angry.

Psalm 68:2 2 As smoke is blown away, so You blow [them] away. As wax melts before the fire, so the wicked are destroyed before God.

Like WAX that melts – Yahweh’s SCORCH PROPHECY remains in effect through the end time. ” but the rebellious live in a scorched land.”

Look around you. What is progressively happening to this planet?

Earthquake activity registered near the volcano meaning an eruption could be imminent, experts say.

An Icelandic volcano that could have a more devastating impact than the one that paralysed air traffic last year may erupt at any moment, experts have warned.

Seismologists are nervously watching rumblings beneath Katla, a volcano on the southern edge of the north Atlantic island nation, which could mean an eruption is imminent.

Katla is a much bigger volcano than nearby Eyjafjallajokul, the 2010 eruption of which cost airlines £1.27billion after ash grounded flights across Europe.

Named after an evil troll, Katla has a larger magma chamber than Eyjafjallajokul’s. Its last major eruption in 1918 continued more than a month, turning day into night, starving crops of sunlight and killing off some livestock.

The eruption melted some of the ice-sheet covering Katla, flooding surrounding farmlands with a torrent of water that some accounts have said measured as wide as the Amazon.

Now, clusters of small earthquakes are being detected around Katla, which means an eruption could be imminent, seismologists say.

Worryingly, earthquakes have been growing in strength: after a long period of magnitude three tremors, a magnitude four quake was detected last week.

‘It is definitely showing signs of restlessness,’ said Piall Einarsson, a professor of geophysics at the University of Iceland, who added that the Eyjafjallajokul was ‘small’, despite its impact.

Teams of seismologists and geologists at the university are now working with disaster officials to prepare nearby communities like Vik, a small town of some 300 people that is flanked by black sand beaches.

Disaster officials have drafted an evacuation plan and set aside temporary housing, but many fear they may have less than an hour to evacuate once the volcano erupts. – Mail Online

City Confronts ‘Occupy Dallas’ Protesters

October 14, 2011 Comments off

If people are going to demonstrate - NOT RIOT, because that will only cause more problems – then demonstrate for what will turn the United States around and help to bring it back to what it once was. People create the problems, and people can fix them. So, if you prefer this Country over Christ’s Millennium, then get out there and demonstrate for the changes that will make a difference. Don’t riot, because that will only cause your Country to fall that much deeper into the pit it’s already in.

DALLAS (CN) – Occupy Wall Street has spread to Dallas, where members of Occupy Dallas sued the city in Federal Court, claiming the city unconstitutionally restricted “their right to peacably demonstrate in traditional public forums”. They seek an injunction allowing them to continue their weeklong protest at Pioneer Plaza.

Inspired by the Occupy Wall Street protests in New York City against economic inequality and corporate greed, protesters in Dallas have being living in a makeshift tent city in a park directly north of the Dallas Convention Center and west of Dallas City Hall.

The Occupy Dallas website says there are more than 120 people at the site.

In their complaint, protesters say the city threatened to revoke their special-use permit unless they secure $1 million in liability insurance.

The protesters say their protest is not a “special event” under city ordinances, and they do not need a special-use permit to exercise their First Amendment rights.

The city disagrees.

The Dallas Morning News reported on Tuesday night that city spokesman Frank Librio had sent “an email blast,” stating: “The city had an agreement with Occupy Dallas to remain on the public property provided standard insurance coverage was obtained. The group did not meet the insurance requirements per the agreement. Therefore, the agreement is no longer applicable. The city will begin enforcing local laws (for example: park curfews and sleeping in public).”

So far, there have been no arrests.

City Councilman Dwayne Caraway told WFAA-TV on Wednesday that “nothing has happened because it’s been given time to try to work things through. If [attorneys for both sides] fail to get it worked through, or show effort toward trying to work it through, then the city has a right to go in and protect the property.”
Attorneys for the protesters say no insurance company could be found to write the policy.

Michael Prestonise, a 26-year-old freelance web designer and protester, told the Huffington Post that the dispute centers around toilets at the protest site.

“This is all about sanitation and health and safety of our members,” he said. “I think the more real threat is our people having to walk through the streets at 3, 4 a.m. just to find a public restroom.”

A ruling on the plaintiffs’ motion is expected today (Friday), by U.S. District Judge Jane Boyle. – CourthouseNews.com

Will Israel bomb Iran without notifying the US?

October 13, 2011 Comments off

Shared with this ministry by Seraiah, 2nd in Command of the LOZ, in 2010 was a warning of what was to come: “The European Union will pull itself together and make a move on the chess board. They will move into the dominate position in a pushing match against China and the Middle East. Israel will come under attack and be overrun when the U.S. falters in power.”

Would it be wise to get out of the cities when this occurs?

“Yes. Just as the prophecy to the Israelite’s to leave the city when they see what is happening, now applies to all cities. Be armed and be prepared to defend yourself as you exit. As this culminates, all power grids will go down. Mass hysteria will feed off of itself. Death will become rampant as people are killed and as many more commit suicide. The military will try and roadblock the cities to keep people in. They will try to bring order but will come under attack from within with turncoats and as military bases fall to subversive groups.”

The danger is that Netanyahu may seek to break out of the current political isolation by mounting a spectacular attack.

In recent weeks, intense discussions have taken place in Israeli military and intelligence circles about whether or not to launch a military strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities. Apparently, the key question in the debate was how to ensure that the United States took part in the attack or, at the very least, intervened on Israel’s side if the initial strike triggered a wider war.

Reports of these discussions have caused considerable alarm in Washington and in a number of European capitals. Some western military experts have been quoted as saying that the window of opportunity for an Israeli air attack on Iran will close within two months, since the onset of winter would make such an assault more difficult.

Concern that Israel may decide to attack without giving the US prior warning is thought to be the main reason for the visit to Tel Aviv on October 3 of the US Defence Secretary Leon Panetta. His aim seems to have been to rein in the Israeli hawks.

Amos Harel of the Israeli daily Haaretz summed up Panetta’s message as follows: America is standing by Israel, but an uncoordinated Israeli strike on Iran could spark a regional war. The US will work to defend Israel, but Israel must behave responsibly.

At his joint press conference with Israel’s Defence Minister Ehud Barak, Panetta said: “The US is very concerned, and we will work together to do whatever is necessary to keep Iran from posing a threat to the region. But doing so depends on the countries working together.” He repeated the word ‘together’ several times. In other words, Israel should not act without an American green light.

In recent years, Israel has often threatened to attack Iran. Why has the subject been revived this time? Is Israel worried that Iran is close to acquiring the capability to manufacture a nuclear bomb? Most intelligence experts agree that Iran has not yet made a decision to build nuclear weapons. A more likely Israeli motive is its concern that the five permanent members of the Security Council plus Germany — the so-called P5+1 — may accept an Iranian offer of renewed talks.

Israel’s greatest fear is that the P5+1 will reach a compromise with Iran which would allow it to continue enriching uranium for civilian purposes. This might then lead in due course to the world agreeing to co-exist with a nuclear Iran. If that were to happen, Israel’s monopoly of nuclear weapons — a key asset in maintaining its regional military supremacy — would be lost. – GulfNews

16 Killed As Tropical Depression Hits Guatemala

Isaiah 28:18 “Your deal with Death will be dissolved, and your agreement with Sheol will not last.When the overwhelming scourge passes through, you will be trampled.”

Father is the deal breaker of Satan’s workings by the one that She trusts the most.

Isaiah 28:2 “Look, the Lord has a strong and mighty one like a devastating hail storm, like a storm with strong flooding waters. He will bring it across the land with [His] hand.”

Michael the Archangel using his power to overcome Father’s adversaries. Michael is the chess piece that faces off with Father’s Chief Adversary.

At least sixteen people were killed on Wednesday when torrential rains from a tropical depression hit several regions of Guatemala, officials said. The death toll is expected to rise.

Tropical Depression 12-E formed near the Mexico-Guatemala border on early Wednesday morning, about 150 miles (240 kilometers) southeast of Salina Cruz in Mexico, triggering Guatemala’s National Disaster Reduction Coordination Center to activate a nationwide red alert.

The heavy rainfall began on Tuesday night and continued into Wednesday, causing landslides, overflowing rivers, and accidents. The depression is expected to weaken and dissipate on Wednesday evening, forecasters said, but the harsh weather is expected to continue into Thursday.

Among the 16 confirmed deaths in Guatemala, four were electrocuted and one was buried in the municipality of Almolonga in the Quetzaltenango department. Several others died after their homes collapsed, while rescue workers recovered a couple of bodies from a river in Chiquimulilla, a municipality in the Santa Rosa department.

The most affected regions include Quetzaltenango, Santa Rosa, Jutiapa, and Totonicapan, as well as other scattered areas in the country. More than 130,000 people in Guatemala have been affected by the severe weather, but there were no immediate reports of casualties from Mexico. – IrishWeatherOnline

Recent UFO Sightings from Around the World

October 13, 2011 2 comments

Are all these unidentified crafts of demonic origin? Some sightings are demons grouped together while others are the USA testing out highly advanced mechanical spacecraft that work in a similar fashion. Yes, there is a phenomenal buildup of UFO’s and Aliens in popular media. One of the main reasons is to to pull people away from their Christian faith by planting a seed of doubt in the public’s mind: What if the Theory of Evolution was true? What if we did evolve from an one-cell organism? It is an attempt to destroy the beliefs of all Christians (The Spiritual Israelites) on the planet.

Another reason is to condition the public to think in terms of good aliens (friendly beings who want to teach warring humans to live in peace) vs bad aliens (alien invasion). The Spiritual War that has been raging for 6,000 years is between the Sons of Light (Yahweh’s angelic warriors) against sons of darkness (Satan and his fallen angels/demons).

Let’s reason things out: Dawn Lucifer who followed through his plan to usurp our Creator’s Sovereignty and became Satan, wants peace and harmony for this planet. Do you think he and his followers, both angelic and human, want the Righteous Kingdom of Christ to be established? Of course not! Yahweh will allow no peace on earth until Her Son’s Kingdom is established. The Lions of Zion (LOZ), Yahweh’s elite angelic warriors, are chosen to administer the Wrath of Yahweh – the kingdoms of this planet will be crushed! There will be an invasion (Fight for Planet Earth – Southern Storm Operation) which will culminate into the Battle of Ages! The Lions of Zion (LOZ), Yahweh’s elite angelic warriors, are behind many of the recent sightings. The many sightings of unidentified crafts filling the sky around the globe will escalate to the point that no government can deny that the entirety of this planet is being visited.

In summary: there are people that believe all of the unidentified crafts are of demonic origin. This simply isn’t true. You have the holy angels that are causing these sightings, and you have the U.S. government that is so far advanced that they are privately engaged against the holy crafts in a game of cat and mouse, trying to either capture or shoot them down. But one thing they know for certain, they cannot out maneuver the holy side no matter how hard they try. The truth is this: Yahweh is going to leave no doubt as to who these crafts belong to. And when they have learned the facts, they will curse our God, because then they will know who they are really dealing with. It is then during that period of time Satan will offer his plan to fight off Mother’s forces. They will willingly come under Satan’s guidance. Not because he fools them, but because they will need his help desperately to try and survive the onslaught that Mother plans to strike those left on this planet with. At that time his powers will be back intact and useful to him. It is not without reason the masses curse God in this end time. They will do it because She brings much pain and suffering, even now, but when they know that for certain, they will despise Her and curse Her name for the pain. Christ is the only Hope out of this world destined for destruction.

Chinese fury as US Senate passes currency bill

October 13, 2011 Comments off

China can sink the United States economically without firing a shot. Satan’s own pawns have maneuvered themselves into losing positions. Things will steadily go down hill. There is no climbing back out of this pit. All countries except for the E.U. and China will be bankrupt as this fall continues. Those two kingdoms will push against one another until war breaks out.

China has a right as one of the U.S. largest lenders to inspect its gold reserve. Not if, but when that happens, the real truth of this country being bankrupt will come to the light.

The US Senate has passed a bill to punish China for alleged currency manipulation, a move Beijing slammed as a “time-bomb” that could start a trade war between the world’s top two economies.

Long frustrated at the alleged job-killing impact of China’s forex regime, Democratic and Republican senators came together Tuesday to pass the bill, but it faces bleak prospects in the Republican-led House of Representatives.

“We are in trade war. But today we’re fighting back,” saidDemocratic Senator Sherrod Brown, one of the bill’s champions, defying the White House’s refusal to back the bill at a time of renewed global economic unease.

The proposal, powered by a tide of US voter frustration at a sour economy and high unemployment ahead of November 2012 elections, envisions retaliatory duties on Chinese exports if the value of the yuan is unfairly “misaligned”.

But Republican House Speaker John Boehner has signaled that he will not bring the legislation to a vote, calling it “dangerous” to economic relations.

China, accusing the US senators of scapegoating it during an election year, said the bill flouted World Trade Organization rules and would “seriously” harm relations between the world’s number one and number two economies.

“It is a serious breach of WTO rules, which cannot solve the US’s own economic and employment issues, and will… seriously interfere with Sino-US economic and trade relations,” said foreign ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu.

The official Xinhua news agency said “what the US Senate did planted a ticking time-bomb that may ignite a potential trade war between the world’s two largest economies.”

President Barack Obama last week accused China of “gaming the trade system” in a way that hurts the US economy, but declined to back the legislation and worried it could violate WTO rules.

Many in Washington agree that China keeps the yuan unfairly low against the dollar, giving its goods an edge of as much as 30 percent over similar US products, widening the trade deficit and costing American jobs.

But the measure’s opponents, stressing the bill’s toll on China ties, also warn that a rise in the yuan would boost manufacturing and jobs in countries such as Vietnam or Malaysia — and not in the United States. – Yahoo News

Lackluster economy could lead to next gold rush

October 12, 2011 Comments off

The European Union will be the first to reorganize the currency into an international medium, and then other countries will follow. The United States will have no choice, because sooner or later, the people of the USA are going to march on Fort Knox demanding an accounting of its contents. And Seraiah and Michael have both been inside the vault, and there is no gold belonging to the United States. What little is inside, it is being held in trust. With nothing backing the currency, and the USA setting its value by supply and demand, the dollar is really valueless.

If the Fed decides to try and fake the gold bars, and there is a metal similar to the weight of gold, simply drilling a few bars will tell the story.

Is gold the answer?

With the nation smothered in debt, crippled by unemployment and financed by dollar bills backed by nothing more than the faith of the public, some conservatives are calling for a return to the gold standard.

At The Heritage Foundation’s Conference on a Stable Dollar last week, former Bush economic adviser and Federal Reserve Governor Larry Lindsey said the weight of history leaned toward gold.

The country moved to a fiat currency during the Civil War and then restored the gold standard years later, he noted, pointing out that this kind of back-and-forth is natural.

“I’m sure we’ll do it again,” Lindsey said. “Probably in the next 10 years.”

His reason for the reversal is both disturbing and unsurprising.

American families took on too much debt during the housing bubble. The government responded to the ensuing meltdown by leveraging up its own balance sheet by trillions of dollars. And the strain of navigating through the debt is more than the Fed’s Open Market Committee, which controls the money supply, can endure.

While Lindsey believes the Fed has done an admirable job, he doubts the 19-member committee can resolve the competing pressures better than a dollar pegged to gold.

“None of these guys are gods,” he said. “Nineteen men trying to adjudicate these demands will disappoint society.”

President Richard M. Nixon officially ended the gold standard more than 30 years ago. While the precious metal can foster a stable currency, it can also have downsides. A reliance on gold limits how much money could be flushed into the economy during a downturn, one of the key strategies for combating a recession.

Reintroducing the gold standard, though, has yet to catch fire with most Republican presidential candidates.

Most of them have called for the resignation of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, but only the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, Herman Cain, has endorsed the gold standard, according to the American Principles Project.

Still, Americans are increasingly enthralled by gold’s luster, even if some presidential candidates are not.

An August survey by Gallup Poll found that 34 percent of those questioned considered gold to be the best long-term investment, beating out real estate, stocks, conventional savings accounts and bonds.

It’s not that big a surprise, given that the precious metal has increased in recent years to more than $1,600 an ounce on Comex.

Gallup suggested two explanations for gold’s popularity: Either it’s caught in an investment bubble, or it reflects a “growing lack of confidence in the U.S. economy.”

Longtime gold standard advocate Lewis Lehrman said the current crisis could change the opinion of political leaders.

“Everything,” he said, “depends on the extent of the disintegration and the desperation of American voters.” – Politico.com

Canary Islands residents evacuated amid fears of seabed volcano eruption

October 12, 2011 Comments off

“Be prepared for the worst that nature has to offer.”

Our God, Yahweh, IS nature. So when it is said that these are “natural occurrences” they are both right and wrong. Right in that yes, they are natural occurrences, but wrong in that they are nothing but the evolving process of the planet we live on.

Ecclesiastes 2:14 The wise man has eyes in his head, but the fool walks in darkness. Yet I also knew that one fate comes to them both.

It is foolish behavior to deny, ignore or dismiss the warnings that come from Yahweh, who disciplines His children and righteously judges them as well. It is equally foolish to deny, ignore or dismiss our Creator, Yahweh, whom we depend upon for our very lives. To do so, is to walk in darkness.

The regional government of the Canary Islands has begun evacuating the small town of La Restinga, on the island of El Hierro, and raised its earthquake warning level amid evidence that a volcano is erupting deep on the nearby seabed.

Approximately 600 inhabitants of the fishing port on the island’s south coast were being told to congregate at a local sports field for evacuation on Tuesday.

Scientists have reported that a volcanic eruption is taking place about 5km (3.1 miles) off the coast at a depth of 600 (1,960ft) to 1,000 metres.

The only visible evidence of the eruption is reported to be dead fish that have floated to the surface. The fish had probably been killed by gas escaping from the volcano, scientists said.

After months of continuous earth tremors on the island, vulcanologists had said there was a reasonable chance of an eruption somewhere near or under El Hierro.

That eruption seems to have started on Monday, pushing hot lava and gases up through the seabed.

With the eruption deep down and several miles away under the sea, the danger to local people and tourists who travel to La Restinga for the diving was considered to be minimal – but authorities today decided to carry out their evacuation plans in case that changed.

The decision was made “due to the possibility that the centre of the eruption might move closer to the coast,” the Canary Islands government said in a statement.

Regional government safety chief Juan Manuel Santana told reporters on Tuesday that raising the alert level from yellow to red – the second and third steps of a four-step system – was also a preventative measure. – The Guardian

German satellite hurtles towards Earth: officials

October 12, 2011 2 comments

“Complete communication battery powered and satellite failures, and the loss of all power grids will be how the LOZ combat Satan’s latest plan to keep his prized child in tack.”

This is the third satellite in just over a month’s time. The LOZ reports: “Rain. Raining satellites. This is just the beginning.”

The x-ray observatory, named ROSAT, is expected to return to Earth between October 20 and 25, travelling at a speed of around 28,000 kilometres (17,000 miles) per hour, the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) said in a statement.

“The latest studies reveal that it is possible that up to 30 individual pieces weighing a total of 1.6 tonnes may reach the surface of the Earth,” the DLR said in a statement on its website.

“The time and location of re-entry cannot be predicted precisely,” added the agency, citing fluctuations in solar activity for the uncertainty.

The satellite could re-enter the atmosphere three days before or after this range, the DLR said, stressing there was very little danger to humans.

Last month, a bus-sized US satellite that hurtled unpredictably toward Earth crossed over Africa and the northern Atlantic before plunging into the Pacific Ocean off California, NASA said.

There were no sightings or reliable accounts of damage as the six-tonne Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) fell from the sky. – Physorg.com

Occupy L.A. Speaker: Violence will be Necessary to Achieve Our Goals

October 12, 2011 5 comments

This ministry continues to sound the warning.

The rioting will soon invade the news as Americans vent their frustrations and feeling of being treated as cattle. Military intervention will occur and Marshal law will be declared as the citizens of the United States have lost their jobs and will then lose their liberties.

Do not oppose the government of the United States. Await Yahweh’s army to liberate Christ’s followers.

“If you are military or police anywhere in this world and you take up arms against your citizens you are fighting against your Creator. You will be putting your life in with Satan’s. He will eventually lose his life for eternity, but your life will be extinguished early by the LOZ forces that are going to take up the fight for the remnant, and you will not only lose your precious life, but any remembrance of you will also be extinguished as you are cast out of creation into the dark pit of oblivion. Be forewarned. Your future existence depends on your actions and you heart condition. Either choice you make, also know this: YOU CANNOT WIN OUT IN COMBATING THE LOZ.”

Citizen journalist Ringo captured this speaker at the Occupy Los Angeles camp a few days ago letting the cat out of the bag: After dismissing nonviolence as a dead end, he admits that for the Occupiers to achieve their goals, violence and bloodshed will be necessary:

Here’s a transcript, starting at 32 seconds into the video:


Occupy L.A. Speaker: “One of the speakers said the solution is nonviolent movement. No, my friend. I’ll give you two examples: French Revolution, and Indian so-called Revolution.

Gandhi, Gandhi today is, with respect to all of you, Gandhi today is a tumor that the ruling class is using constantly to mislead us. French Revolution made fundamental transformation. But it was bloody.

India, the result of Gandhi, is 600 million people living in maximum poverty.

So, ultimately, the bourgeoisie won’t go without violent means. Revolution! Yes, revolution that is led by the working class.

Long live revolution! Long live socialism!”

Crowd: [Cheers.]


Incredibly, he praises the massacres of the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror rather than Gandhi’s nonviolent philosophy.

And the crowd laps it up.

Every single day, more videos emerge from the Occupy movement showing people saying things that, if they had been said by a Tea Partier, would have been front-page news for weeks and discredited the movement forever. But since it’s the Occupy Wall Street movement, darlings of the media and Democratic politicians, they get a pass. – The PJ Tatler

Buckle Up: America Is Getting Very Angry And The Protests Are Going To Become Much More Frightening

The Occupy Wall Street protests and the rise of the Tea Party movement have both changed America, but you haven’t seen anything yet. You better buckle up, because America is getting very angry and as the economy continues to decline the economic protests are going to become much more frightening in the years ahead. Americans have become very accustomed to prosperity. Now that our prosperity is vanishing, people are starting to become very angry. The scary thing is that the vast majority of our population now lives in tightly congested urban areas. That makes the potential for mass rioting and civil unrest much greater. Back in 1910, 72 percent of Americans lived in rural areas. Today, only 16 percent of Americans live in rural areas. So what happens when you have millions of incredibly angry people crammed into tightly congested metropolitan areas? Well, we are about to find out.

Over the past 4 years, we have seen some unprecedented things happen in America. First we witnessed the rise of the Tea Party movement. Initially it pretty much was a true grassroots movement but now it has been mostly taken over by establishment Republicans. Now we are witnessing the rise of Occupy Wall Street. While there are some grassroots elements to it, the reality is that Occupy Wall Street seems to be pretty much controlled by the Democrats. In fact, one individual was recently told that “Ron Paul signs are not welcome here” at a recent protest.

So we have the left and the right fighting with each other like cats and dogs. The Tea Party movement and Occupy Wall Street both pretty much hate each other.

Meanwhile, those that control both political parties are enjoying the view.

But the people that are expressing their anger through protest movements such as Occupy Wall Street are not going to be content with the status quo for long.

The truth is that there is a lot of anger in the United States today, and that anger is rapidly growing. Millions upon millions of Americans are deeply upset about the economy and about our financial system.

Right now, protests by both the Tea Party movement and Occupy Wall Street have been mostly peaceful.

But that will not last indefinitely.

In fact, there are already signs that Occupy Wall Street protesters are not content with simply sitting in the park and banging on drums.

For example, protesters stormed the Senate Hart Office Building in Washington D.C. today. A handful of protesters were arrested.

Also, more than 50 protesters from the Occupy Boston movement were arrested today when they would not do what police were ordering them to do.

But most notable of all was the march to the homes of certain millionaires up in New York. Earlier today, Occupy Wall Street protesters marched to the homes of Jamie Dimon, David Koch, John Paulson, Howard Milstein, and Rupert Murdoch.

Needless to say, that is going to seriously upset some people.

The home protests were not spontaneous. The truth is that they were highly organized. Organizers such as SEIU board member Stephen Lerner have been talking about them for quite some time. In fact, you can hear him discussing plans for the upcoming protests at the homes of these millionaires back on October 3rd right here.

There is a lot about Occupy Wall Street that can be criticized (just check out this article), but one thing that Occupy Wall Street is actually doing right is that it is focusing on the role of money in politics.

The big financial powers spend hundreds of millions of dollars on political campaigns. Just check out this infographic. All of that money buys a lot of influence over the political process. If it didn’t, the big financial powers would not be spending that kind of money.

But the big financial powers are not just spending money on political campaigns. It has now come out that the big Wall Street banks can order New York City police officers just like they would order pizzas. In fact, over a million dollars is going to be spent this way just this year alone.

A recent article that was posted on counterpunch.org detailed how this works….

One of the ingenious methods that has remained below the public’s radar was started by the Rudy Giuliani administration in New York City in 1998. It’s called the Paid Detail Unit and it allows the New York Stock Exchange and Wall Street corporations, including those repeatedly charged with crimes, to order up a flank of New York’s finest with the ease of dialing the deli for a pastrami on rye.

The corporations pay an average of $37 an hour (no medical, no pension benefit, no overtime pay) for a member of the NYPD, with gun, handcuffs and the ability to arrest. The officer is indemnified by the taxpayer, not the corporation.

New York City gets a 10 percent administrative fee on top of the $37 per hour paid to the police. The City’s 2011 budget called for $1,184,000 in Paid Detail fees, meaning private corporations were paying wages of $11.8 million to police participating in the Paid Detail Unit. The program has more than doubled in revenue to the city since 2002.

So expect the big Wall Street banks to be sending in orders for huge numbers of New York City cops to protect them from the half-crazed Occupy Wall Street protesters.

Sadly, if recent poll numbers are any indication, the anger of the American people is not going to abate any time soon….

*According to Gallup, the percentage of Americans that lack confidence in U.S. banks is now at an all-time high of 36%.

*According to a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll, 90 percent of Americans believe that the economy is performing poorly and approximately 80 percent of Americans believe that it is “difficult” to find a job right now.

*According to a recent Rasmussen survey, 48 percent of all Americans believe that reductions in government spending are “at least somewhat likely” to result in civil unrest inside the United States.

*Another recent survey found that 73 percent of all Americans believe that the nation is “on the wrong track”.

*According to a recent CBS News/New York Times poll, Congress has a disapproval rating of 82%.

*A recent Rasmussen survey found that 85 percent of Americans believe that members of Congress “are more interested in helping their own careers than in helping other people”, and that same survey found that 46 percent of the American people believe that most members of Congress are corrupt.

*According to a different Rasmussen survey, only 17 percent of all Americans now believe that the U.S. government has the consent of the governed.

*A recent Washington Post poll found that 78 percent of Americans are dissatisfied “with the way this country’s political system is working” and that only 26 percent of Americans now believe that the federal government can solve the economic problems that we are facing.

So what does all of that add up to?

It adds up to a U.S. population that is very frustrated and that is looking for outlets for that frustration.

As the U.S. economy continues to fall apart, that frustration is going to continue to rise.

What we are seeing all across America is only the beginning. We are going to see protest movements and explosions of anger that we can’t even imagine right now.

Dark days are coming for America.

You better buckle up. – EndofTheAmericanDream.com

Not a Single Christian Church Left in Afghanistan, Says State Department

October 11, 2011 1 comment

(CNSNews.com) – There is not a single, public Christian church left in Afghanistan, according to the U.S. State Department.

This reflects the state of religious freedom in that country ten years after the United States first invaded it and overthrew its Islamist Taliban regime.

In the intervening decade, U.S. taxpayers have spent $440 billion to support Afghanistan’s new government and more than 1,700 U.S. military personnel have died serving in that country.

The last public Christian church in Afghanistan was razed in March 2010, according to the State Department’s latest International Religious Freedom Report. The report, which was released last month and covers the period of July 1, 2010 through December 31, 2010, also states that “there were no Christian schools in the country.”

“There is no longer a public Christian church; the courts have not upheld the church’s claim to its 99-year lease, and the landowner destroyed the building in March [2010],” reads the State Department report on religious freedom. “[Private] chapels and churches for the international community of various faiths are located on several military bases, PRTs [Provincial Reconstruction Teams], and at the Italian embassy. Some citizens who converted to Christianity as refugees have returned.”

In recent times, freedom of religion has declined in Afghanistan, according to the State Department.

“The government’s level of respect for religious freedom in law and in practice declined during the reporting period, particularly for Christian groups and individuals,” reads the State Department report.

“Negative societal opinions and suspicion of Christian activities led to targeting of Christian groups and individuals, including Muslim converts to Christianity,” said the report. “The lack of government responsiveness and protection for these groups and individuals contributed to the deterioration of religious freedom.”

Most Christians in the country refuse to “state their beliefs or gather openly to worship,” said the State Department. – CNSNews

Subsea Volcanic Eruption Underway Near El Hierro (The Canary Islands)

October 10, 2011 Comments off

Those that perished at the great flood drowned, but this time, it is going to be a burn off for those left behind. After the nations are crushed, Yahweh is going to make certain nothing and no one survives.

The earth is about to become barren as Yahweh prepares it for a complete change after the great earthquake. All of Satan’s footprint will be decimated and removed.

A submarine volcanic eruption is taking place approximately 5 kilometres off the southern coast of El Hierro, the smallest of The Canary Islands.

The Mayor of La Frontera (El Hierro), David Cabrera, confirmed in an interview on Radio iron Garoé that ‘underwater eruption’ is taking place about 900 metres beneath the sea surface five kilometres south of La Restinga. The eruption has been ongoing for four hours, the Mayor said.

Spanish newspaper laopionion.es quoted the Minister of emergencies of the Cabildo of El Hierro, Maria of Carmen Morales, as saying the eruption is taking place because ‘the seismic movement of 4.3 occurred on Saturday afternoon caused a fissure, from where the energy is been released’. Scientists remain unclear if the emissions are gas or lava.

A meeting of PEVOLCA – Actualidad Volcánica de Canarias, comprising representatives of Instituto Geografico Nacional (IGN) and The Canary Islands Government, took place on the Spanish Island. In a statement issued shortly before 4 p.m. local time, the IGN stated (translated from spanish language press release): “…although there is no certainty that at the moment is producing an underwater volcanic eruption, since the last morning there has been a release of fluids and volcanic gas on the southern coast of the island.”

“Scientists from IGN have reported to the direction of the Plan all the indicators that have been analyzed to point towards the possibility of the beginning of an eruptive process that has changed the type of waves that have registered seismographs in the last hours, implying the beginning of emission of gases or lava…”

“The helicopter of the emergency and rescue of the Government of the Canary Islands (GES) group has done reconnaissance flights during the morning without exit of volcanic material to the surface.”

“Although this activity is not exposed to, the direction of the PEVOLCA encourages people to perform their usual tasks normally and to remain attentive to any unusual activity”, the statement added.

Meanwhile, La Agencia Estatal (CSIC) scientists equipped with special detection cameras have been making numerous sorties over coastal areas of El Hierro in an attempt to verify the existence and scale of the underwater eruption. This is Spain’s first volcanic eruption since 1971 when the erupted of the Teneguía volcano  on the island of La Palma (Canary Islands), located to the north of El Hierro.

Initial reports of the eruption were received from crews on board four separate ships. On Monday afternoon, Terra Noticias/Agencia EFE reported that an eruption occurred 2000 metres below sea level in the Las Calmas sea at 10.43 local time (05:43 EDT).  Spanish newspaper El Mundo placed the depth of the eruption at 13oo metres.

The eruption takes place amidst an unprecedented earthquake swarm in El Hierro. The number of earthquakes recorded since July 17, 2011 on El Hierro has now exceeded 10,000. - Irish Weather Online

US food supply threatened: Foreign insects, diseases

October 10, 2011 Comments off

The one world currency will soon come into reality, and shortages of food and other items of rationing will require that anyone whom purchases them must have complied with the world government’s mandate so that no one can steal someone else identity and purchase additional items so as to hoard or black market them. Enters the new age of Satan’s mark of the beast. 666 representing the number of a man, being in alignment with Satan as the new ruling authority over all of mankind. Computer chips will be implanted, or Satan’s law will dictate that those refusing must be eliminated.

Dozens of foreign insects and plant diseases slipped undetected into the United States in the years after 9/11, when authorities were so focused on preventing another attack that they overlooked a pest explosion that threatened the quality of the nation’s food supply.

At the time, hundreds of agricultural scientists responsible for stopping invasive species at the border were reassigned to anti-terrorism duties in the newly formed Homeland Security Department — a move that scientists say cost billions of dollars in crop damage and eradication efforts from California vineyards to Florida citrus groves.

The consequences come home to consumers in the form of higher grocery prices, substandard produce and the risk of environmental damage from chemicals needed to combat the pests.

An Associated Press analysis of inspection records found that border-protection officials were so engrossed in stopping terrorists that they all but ignored the country’s exposure to destructive new insects and infections — a quietly growing menace that has been attacking fruits and vegetables and even prized forests ever since.

“Whether they know it or not, every person in the country is affected by this, whether by the quality or cost of their food, the pesticide residue on food or not being able to enjoy the outdoors because beetles are killing off the trees,” said Mark Hoddle, an entomologist specializing in invasive species at the University of California, Riverside.

Homeland Security officials acknowledge making mistakes and say they are now working to step up agricultural inspections at border checkpoints, airports and seaports.

While not as dire as terrorism, the threat is considerable and hard to contain.

Many invasive species are carried into the U.S. by people who are either unaware of the laws or are purposely trying to skirt quarantine regulations. The hardest to stop are fruits, vegetables and spices carried by international travelers or shipped by mail. If tainted with insects or infections, they could carry contagions capable of devastating crops.

Plants and cut flowers can harbor larvae, as can bags of bulk commodities such as rice. Beetles have been found hitchhiking on the bottom of tiles from Italy, and boring insects have burrowed into the wooden pallets commonly used in cargo shipments.

A look at the damage:

  • No fewer than 19 Mediterranean fruit fly infestations took hold in California, and the European grapevine moth triggered spraying and quarantines across wine country.
  • The Asian citrus psyllid, which can carry a disease that has decimated Florida orange groves, crossed the border from Mexico, threatening California’s $1.8 billion citrus industry.
  • New Zealand’s light brown apple moth also emerged in California, prompting the government in 2008 to bombard the Monterey Bay area with 1,600 pounds of pesticides. The spraying drew complaints that it caused respiratory problems and killed birds. Officials spent $110 million to eradicate the moth, but it didn’t work.
  • The sweet orange scab, a fungal disease that infects citrus, appeared in Florida, Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi, which all imposed quarantines.
  • Chili thrips, rice cutworms and the plant disease gladiolus rust also got into Florida, which saw a 27 percent increase in new pests and pathogens between 2003 and 2007.
  • The erythrina gall wasp decimated Hawaii’s wiliwili trees, which bear seeds used to make leis.
  • Forests from Minnesota to the Northeast were also affected by beetles such as the emerald ash borer, many of which arrived in Chinese shipping pallets because regulations weren’t enforced.
In all, the number of pest cases intercepted at U.S. ports of entry fell from more than 81,200 in 2002 to fewer than 58,500 in 2006, before creeping back up in 2007, when the farm industry and members of Congress began complaining. – MSNBC

Occupy Wall St.’s drumbeat grows louder

October 10, 2011 Comments off

“A plan of action: It is now wise if each of you have not already done so, to purchase dry products such as rice, beans, canned foods, bottled water, first aid kit and be prepared to remain in seclusion for a period of time. When things come to a head and break loose upon this Country, those things will not be available for a considerable length of time. The United States has a secret plan to reopen closed military bases for incarceration of those demonstrating against the United States government. For you own present welfare, please do not take part in any of the coming surges of unrest. An iron fist is what awaits those that rise up. Oppression of Satan’s unjust world is only the beginning of the nightmare awaiting mankind, but deliverance will come through Yahweh’s army of heavenly hosts. We are not blind to your dilemma or your cries of desperation. As things culminate into the mire of a feeling of desolation, Yahweh the Warrior will rise up and deliver Her people. Be patient and ever diligent towards your coming deliverance from Satan’s hell on earth.” Bebai, LOZ

The drumbeat of the Occupy Wall Street protest is growing louder and wider.

“Wall Street got bailed out, and we all got sold out!”

From the streets of New York … to the nation’s capital … to the South (Mobile, Ala., Jacksonville, Fla.) and West (Portland, Ore.), Americans are frustrated and making their voices heard.

“Wealthy individuals who own giant corporations have bought off our Congress and bought off our government and, you know, the people no longer have a voice anymore,” one protester told CBS News.

The marchers come from all walks of life – young and old, male and female, hoping their lawmakers are listening.

“I think the message is obvious,” said Jesse Lagreca, 38. “The wealthiest one percent is taking advantage of working class people. They’ve been selling us faulty financial products, they’ve been taking huge bonuses while depending on society to bail them out.”

CBSMoneywatch’s Jill Schlesinger points out that, according to economists at Northeastern University, corporate profits represented 88 percent of the growth in real national income between the 2Q of 2009 and 4Q of 2010, during the same period aggregate wages and salaries accounted for just over 1 percent. “The money that companies have earned during the recovery has mostly stayed within corporate America,” writes Schlesinger, “and has not trickled down into higher wages, nor has it created enough jobs to put some of the 14 million unemployed Americans back to work.”

“Ninety-nine percent of the people need to be prospering, not just the top one percent,” said Michael Mulgrew, president of New York City’s United Federation of Teachers.

“Every community knows they’re hurting, what’s going on is wrong, and it’s time to stop this and make a difference, and do things that allow all people to prosper.”

On “The Early Show” Monday, Former Senator Russell Feingold, D-Wis., said of the protests spreading across the country, “I’m not just pleased about it, I’m excited about it.”

He reflected on the pro-labor demonstrations in Wisconsin earlier this year that were sparked by the governor’s fight to take away collective bargaining rights from public sector workers in his state. “We did it here, and I think this is going to happen all over the country,” Feingold said, “because people have been kicked when they are down, over and over again. You can only kick people so long before they react.

“This is time now for accountability, and this is a good way to show people how strongly we feel. The working people of this country have been treated very brutally and it has to change.” – CBSNews
