"We see, in many a land, the proudest dynasties and tyrannies still crushing, with their mountain weight, every free motion of the Consciences and hearts of men. We see, on the other hand, the truest heroism for the right and the greatest devotion to the Truth in hearts that God has touched. We have a work to do, as great as our forefathers and, perhaps, far greater. The enemies of Truth are more numerous and subtle than ever and the needs of the Church are greater than at any preceding time. If we are not debtors to the present, then men were never debtors to their age and their time. Brethren, we are debtors to the hour in which we live. Oh, that we might stamp it with Truth and that God might help us to impress upon its wings some proof that it has not flown by neglected and unheeded." -- C.H. Spurgeon . . . "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31, 32

euro-crisis_2821613bOn the face of it, they seem worlds apart. Switzerland’s referendum vote against the free movement of labour, the ruling by the German Constitutional Court on the European Central Bank’s (ECB) attempts to save the euro, and the warning to Scotland that it won’t be allowed to keep the pound if it votes for independence – these might seem unrelated, but in truth they are all part of an increasingly explosive stand-off between the forces of national sovereignty on the one hand, and political and economic integration on the other. With elections in May likely to give rise to the most Eurosceptic parliament in the EU’s history, Europe’s long-running financial and economic crisis is threatening to spill over into an all-encompassing political one. According to Berlin and Brussels, Europe’s dark night of the soul – its most serious crisis since the Second World War – is now essentially behind us, with the promise of a slowly recovering economy and renewed political harmony to come. To my mind, it has hardly begun. Europe’s epic attempt to impose political union on widely divergent countries is being broken on the back of economic hardship, popular discontent, and financial disintegration. Virtually all successful currency unions start with political union, and then proceed through shared insurance, institutions, and fiscal arrangements to a common form of exchange. Europe, it hardly needs saying, is trying to do it the other way round; it has forced monetary union on an unsuspecting public, and now, via the resulting financial crisis, hopes to bulldoze through the shared fiscal and political arrangements that might eventually make it work, culminating ultimately in a United States of Europe.

Soros' Secret Political Network Revealed

Jim Messina, David Brock, Neera TandenThe Democracy Alliance is highly secretive in all of its operations. The donors it solicits and the organization to which it directs their financial support are prohibited from speaking publicly about its operations. Security was tight at its recent conference in Chicago where reporters from the Free Beacon and Politico were rebuffed by attendees who would not answer questions about their involvement with the group.

A secretive dark money group backed by George Soros and other liberal mega-donors is looking to steer nearly $40 million to left-wing groups in 2014 to support high-profile political and policy efforts, according to documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

The documents reveal for the first time the Democracy Alliance’s full portfolio of supported organizations, a large network of powerful liberal groups looking to win key electoral and legislative victories.

The Democracy Alliance connects major Democratic donors with some of the largest and most influential liberal activist groups in the country. Previous beneficiaries, such as the Center for American Progress and Media Matters for America, are set to get millions more in 2014.

The list also reveals DA support for newer organizations, such as Organizing for Action, the advocacy group that succeeded President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign. That group has received official sanction from the White House, and operates websites and social media accounts branded with the president’s name.

In all, the document reveals, the Democracy Alliance hopes to provide $39.3 million to 20 organizations this year. If it meets those fundraising targets, it will likely be responsible for one out of every five dollars in those groups’ 2014 budgets.

Jihadists look to form extremist state along Syria-Iraq border
-
A consistent flow of money and foreign fighters are fueling ISIL bid to assert control in eastern provinces

This undated file image posted on a militant website on Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2014 shows fighters from the al-Qaeda linked Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) marching in Raqqa, Syria (photo credit: AP)Jihadists have launched a fresh bid to take over the Syria-Iraq border area and set up a so-called Islamic state they can control, rebels, activists and a monitoring group say.

“Their name is the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). Their goal is to link together the two areas (Syria, Iraq) to set up their state and then to continue spreading,” said activist and citizen journalist Abdel Salam Hussein.

Speaking from Albu Kamal on the Iraq border, Hussein said ISIL, sometimes referred to as ISIS, seeks to crush the Nusra Front, al-Qaeda’s Syria affiliate, and control the eastern, energy-rich province of Deir Ezzor bordering Iraq.

“ISIL are trying to end Al-Nusra Front’s power in the area, and if they do they will take over” the whole province, he said.

ISIL’s long-time ambition of creating an area under its control stretching across Syria and Iraq was undermined by a massive January offensive against it by rival Islamist rebels.

The campaign cornered ISIL fighters in Raqa province, its bastion in northern Syria.

Once welcomed into the rebellion against President Bashar al-Assad, ISIL’s aim to dominate and its horrific abuses of civilians and rival fighters sparked the wrath of much of Syria’s opposition, including former ally Al-Nusra.

The Era of Chimeras:  Scientists Fearlessly Create Bizarre Human/Animal Hybrids

Did you know that scientists are creating cow/human hybrids, pig/human hybrids and even mouse/human hybrids?  This is happening every single day in labs all over the western world, but most people have never even heard about it.  So would you drink milk from a cow/human hybrid that produces milk that is almost identical to human breast milk?  And how would you interact with a mouse that has a brain that is almost entirely human?  These are the kinds of questions that we will have to start to address as a society as scientists create increasingly bizarre human/animal hybrids.  Thanks to dramatic advances in genetic technology, we have gotten to the point where it is literally possible for college students to create new hybrid lifeforms in their basements.   Of course our laws have not kept pace with these advances, and now that Pandora’s Box has been opened, it is going to be nearly impossible to shut it. Scientists try to justify the creation of human/animal hybrids by telling us that it will help “cure disease” and help “end world hunger”, but what if scientists discover that combining human DNA with animal DNA can give us incredible new abilities or greatly extended lifespans?  Will humanity really have the restraint to keep from going down that road?

Communist Party USA Planning to Unite Left Wing Groups to Protect Democrats and Obama from Losing the Senate Seats

With Democrats facing a real possibility of losing the Senate this November, the Communist Party USA has announced the cavalry is planning to ride to their rescue by helping unite the left and stave off “right-wing extremism.” The plans were announced during a web streaming event held by party Chairman Sam Webb Wednesday titled “Taking care of the future: from here to socialism.” The event was part of the party’s national convention process which will culminate later this year in Chicago, where the party was formed in 1919. Webb told listeners that there is no direct path to socialism and that to arrive at their destination they would have to pass through different stages. He stated one of those steps was to work with other left-wing groups to press for issues important to the left. “We can talk about shortening the work week, green jobs, restructuring the economy, we can talk about the de-militarization of the economy and putting those people back to work in jobs that are productive,” Webb said. “The starting point has to be this immediate engagement, but once we do that many things become possible such as more radical demands.” Webb acknowledged that one of the problems the movement faces is the stigma of the name Communist among some Americans, but he believes under the policies of the Obama administration the country is now more willing to embrace those beliefs.

Belgian lawmakers voted overwhelmingly on Thursday to extend the country’s euthanasia law to children under 18. The law empowers children with terminal ailments who are in great pain to ask to be put to death by their doctor if their parents agree and a psychiatrist or psychologist certifies they are conscious of what their choice signifies. It has wide public support, but was opposed by some pediatricians and the country’s Roman Catholic clergy. As House of Representative members cast their ballots and an electronic tally board lit up with enough green lights to indicate the measure would carry, a lone protester in the chamber shouted “assassins!” Hans Bonte, a Socialist, said no member of the House hopes the law will ever be made use of. But he said all Belgians, including minors, deserved the right to “bid farewell to life in humane circumstances” without having to fear they were breaking the law. The 86-44 vote in the House, with 12 abstentions, followed approval by the Senate last December. Laurent Louis, an independent House member who opposed the legislation, said the majority of his colleagues were violating the natural order.

30,000 Jews prepare to flee Odessa over fears of massacres as Ukrainian troops move in on pro-Russian militants

  • Deaths reported during 'security sweep' by pro-Kiev troops in Slovyansk after armed pro-Moscow separatists occupy city of 125,000
  • Ukrainian helicopter gunship brought down by machine gun fire over city, according to Kiev defence ministry
  • Pro-Putin militants with armoured personnel carriers have set up check-points on outskirts of city
  • Leader of 30,000-strong Jewish community in Odessa says they may have to flee over fears of persecution
  • City saw appalling massacres by Nazis in World War II and was also scene of pogroms in Tsarist Russia
  • Kremlin says Kiev 'must stop the bloodshed' as it steps up rhetoric over troubled country
The Jewish community of the southern Ukrainian city of Odessa is prepared for mass evacuation, should violence re-erupt there, according to a Monday report by Russia Today.

Clashes between anti-government and pro-government activists in the past weeks culminated in the deaths on Friday of dozens of pro-Russian militants, most of whom burned to death in a building that they retreated into after a pitched street battle with pro-Maidan militants.

Rabbi Avraham Wolf, representing the Chabad hassidic community, said they are taking extra security measures, such as posting armed guards, and are prepared for a possible evacuation. Together with the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, they have prepared a fleet of 70 buses, fueled and ready to go, if evacuation of the Chabad community is deemed unavoidable.

China Is Preparing For "Short And Sharp" War With Japan Over Disputed East China Sea Islands: US Officer

China’s military has been beefing up training as the country continues keeping an unwavering stance on various territory disputes with its neighbors. In particular, according to a U.S. naval officer China has been preparing for possible military action over the ongoing dispute with Japan over a small cluster of islands in the East China Sea, and the more recent air-defense zone dispute.
According to a report by the United States Naval Institution, part of China’s Mission Action 2013 exercise, a military drill that includes all branches of the country’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA), included preparation for combat to take over the Senkaku/ Diaoyu Islands, Capt. James Fannell, deputy chief of staff intelligence and information operations for the U.S. Pacific Fleet, said.

Severe Storm Threats Return to Central U.S. Later This Week


Enhanced Severe Threat to Return

The next threat of more widespread severe thunderstorms returns by Wednesday and Thursday as the next southward dip in the jet stream pivots out of the Rockies into the Plains.
A corridor of warm, moist, unstable air should set up from the southern and central Plains to the western Great Lakes by then. This will be an area to watch for the potential of intense thunderstorms and potential severe weather.
A few severe thunderstorms may develop in parts of the central and southern Plains on Wednesday. There is still some uncertainty, as a "cap" of warm, stable air aloft may limit or delay thunderstorm development.
Thursday looks to be a more likely day for strong to severe thunderstorm development in a broad swath from the southern and central Plains to the upper Mississippi Valley – from parts of Texas to as far north as Minnesota and/or Wisconsin. Tornadoes, large hail, and damaging winds are all possibilities. The extent of these threats and the specific areas with the greatest risk should become clearer as we get closer to Thursday.

Satanic group reveals crowdfunded monument for Oklahoma State Capitol

A Satanist statue cast in bronze is just months away from completion, and activists hope that it will find a home on the lawn of the Oklahoma State Capitol. Ultimately, the statue — which features the seven-foot tall, horned figure of Baphomet fawned upon by two exultant children — is intended to stand directly next to a highly controversial monument of the ten commandments that was donated by a state legislator in 2012 and subsequently placed on the grounds of the Capitol. The Baphomet figure, complete with a goat head, angel wings, and a beard, comes from a recently-formed New York group identifying as The Satanic Temple, which raised over $28,000 on Indiegogo earlier this year to commission a sculptor and create the piece. Satanic Temple spokesperson Lucian Greaves tells ABC News that the statue is a symbol to “celebrate our progress as a pluralistic nation founded on secular law.”http://www.theverge.com/2014/5/3/5678782/satanic-group-reveals-crowdfunded-monument-for-oklahoma-state-capitol


Ukraine crisis: Troops surround pro-Russian stronghold

East Ukraine is braced for more unrest, as troops from Kiev prepare to continue "anti-terror" operations and pro-Russian gunmen reinforce barricades. Ukrainian soldiers advanced on several cities on Saturday to regain control of buildings seized by the gunmen. But in at least one city, Luhansk, the rebels made further gains, storming a security services base.

Ukraine: Deadly clashes around parliament in Kiev

Violent clashes have erupted during anti-government protests in Ukraine's capital, Kiev, with at least nine people, including two policemen, dead. In the worst violence in weeks, police used rubber bullets and stun grenades as thousands of protesters marching on parliament. A deadline set by the security forces for the violence to end has passed with no immediate sign of police action. The clashes came as MPs were due to debate changes to the constitution.

Growing number of Americans are in Middle East civil war

The FBI said that it considers Americans fighting in the Syrian civil war a “growing problem for US intelligence and law enforcement,” The Washington Post reported Friday.
The report said the FBI’s central concern was that Americans who affiliate themselves with al-Qaida- linked rebel forces in Syria could return to the US and perpetrate acts of terror.
The FBI source did not give the Washington Post an estimate of how many Americans are believed to be fighting in Syria. However, a study by the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center at the Israeli Intelligence and Heritage Commemoration Center estimated the number of foreign combatants fighting in Syria at between 6,000 and 7,000.


MERS virus arrives in U.S. from Middle East

Two years after it first cropped up in the Middle East, a potentially fatal respiratory illness arrived in the United States aboard a jetliner that landed at O'Hare International Airport 10 days ago.
The news that Middle East respiratory syndrome, or MERS — a virus that by one estimate has killed roughly a quarter of the relatively small number of patients confirmed to be infected by it — is on U.S. soil quickly triggered investigations by federal and state health authorities.
"Right now we don't have a lot of experience with this in the U.S.," said Dr. Michael Lin, an infectious disease specialist at Rush University Medical Center. "Most of our information about how this virus spreads comes from the Middle East."


Two Giant Banks, Seen as Immune, Become Targets

Federal prosecutors are nearing criminal charges against some of the world’s biggest banks, according to lawyers briefed on the matter, a development that could produce the first guilty plea from a major bank in more than two decades.
In doing so, prosecutors are confronting the popular belief that Wall Street institutions have grown so important to the economy that they cannot be charged. A lack of criminal prosecutions of banks and their leaders fueled a public outcry over the perception that Wall Street giants are “too big to jail.”

UN chief to Israel, Palestinians: Avoid unilateral steps

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Thursday urged Israel and the Palestinians to avoid unilateral steps that would put the peace process in further jeopardy.
In an official statement, Ban said he had been keeping abreast of ongoing developments in the Middle East peace process — most recently, the US-mediated peace talks that hit a standstill after both sides deviated from their commitments.
In Israel’s case, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu refused to release a fourth round of Palestinian prisoners before the Palestinians agreed to continue talks beyond their April deadline and because of a dispute over Israeli-Arab releases. On the Palestinian side, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas signed appeals on behalf of his intended Palestinian state to join 15 international conventions, breaking his commitment to abstain from unilateral steps to statehood while negotiations mediated by US Secretary of State John Kerry were taking place.

"One Nation Under Allah" The Islamization of American Schools

So outrageous were the allegations that the usually subdued and sharia-compliant British authorities initiated an investigation into the charges that devout Muslims covertly sought to “Islamize” the public schools in the UK. The bombshell was dropped last month in a leaked letter, describing an operation purportedly named “Trojan Horse.” According to Andrew Gilligan in The Telegraph, the jihad ringleader of the Trojan Horse plot constructed and implemented a “detailed blueprint for the radical ‘Islamisation’ of secular state schools.”


Syria chemical weapons: Britain calls for urgent investigation

Foreign Secretary says new use of chemical weapons by Assad regime, revealed by The Telegraph, is "sickening" 
Britain has called for an urgent investigation into chemical weapons attacks by the Syrian regime after a Telegraph investigation showed chlorine bombs are being used to kill civilians.
Scientific analysis of samples from multiple gas attacks, conducted exclusively for The Telegraph, show sizable and unambiguous traces of chlorine and ammonia from the scene of three recent attacks.
William Hague, the Foreign Secretary, has called for a fact-finding mission from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) announced on Tuesday to be carried out “urgently”.
“Reports suggesting that chemical weapons have again been used, heaping further misery on the people of Syria, are utterly sickening,” the Foreign Secretary said.
“Time is of the essence in establishing the full facts. The mission must be given full access to all sites and be allowed to carry out its investigation without any interference or delay.

Israeli Institute Prepares Priests for Jerusalem's Third Temple

The movement to rebuild Jerusalem's third temple expands.

The Temple Mount, known to Muslims as Al-Haram Al-Sharif,  dominates this aerial view of the Old City of Jerusalem, taken on Oct. 2, 2007.

On April 10, at 5 p.m., hundreds of Jews will gather at the Maimonides rabbinical institution plaza in the Kiryat Moshe neighborhood in Jerusalem and start learning the Jewish laws of Passover. Rabbis and experts, including Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, the head of the Temple Institute in the Old City of Jerusalem, the leading body preparing for the establishment of the third temple, will teach the audience the laws of the Passover sacrifice. Alongside Ariel, the ritual slaughterer (shohet) Rabbi Yehudah Giatt will teach the audience about the unique elements of the slaughter of the Passover sacrifice. After the lessons, the real thing will start: the simulation of the Passover sacrifice.

The timing of the gathering isn’t coincidental: This was the date on which the people of Israel were commanded to take a lamb and sacrifice it, before the exodus from Egypt. The ceremony on Thursday will be, in Israel Defense Forces (IDF) lingo, “practice with live fire.” Slaughtering lambs, sprinkling their blood on the altar by priests dressed in kosher priestly garments and roasting the lambs, with their heads, legs and innards. Just as God intended
