Doug Hagmann 12-11-13 The plot of a film noir of a half-century ago consisted of an unassuming man confessing to police his involvement in a number of murders in London while each remained unsolved. The murders took place over a period of a few months and were ostensibly performed at the hands of a serial killer.
He purposely gave police incorrect information about the killer’s signature which was publicly withheld by the police, although he learned of this critical bit of information through an obscure contact he had in the department. Soon, the police tired of his confessions and treated him as a serial confessor, rather than the murderer that he was. When an innocent man was arrested, convicted and sentenced to death, the real actor wanted to do the right thing to spare the innocent man, but no one believed him, including the police. Could this pattern of behavior apply to Bill Ayers with regard to
Michael Snyder 12-11-13 When QE1 ended there was a substantial stock market correction, and when QE2 ended there was a substantial stock market correction. And if you will remember, the financial markets threw a massive hissy fit a few months ago when Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke suggested that the Fed may soon start tapering QE3. Clearly Wall Street does not like it when their supply of monetary heroin is interrupted. The Federal Reserve has tricked the American people into supporting quantitative easing by insisting that it is about “stimulating the economy”, but that has turned out to be a massive hoax. In fact, I just wrote an article that contained 37 statistics that prove things just keep getting even worse for ordinary Americans. But quantitative easing has been exceptionally good for Wall Street. During QE1, the S&P 500 rose by about 300 points. During QE2, the S&P 500 rose by about 200 points. And during QE3, the S&P 500 has risen by about 400 points. The S&P 500 is now in unprecedented territory, and stock prices have become completely and totally divorced from reality. In essence, we are in the midst of the largest financial bubble this nation has ever seen. So what is going to happen when
Tyler Durden 12-10-13 Gold ($1260) and silver ($20) are extending yesterday’s gains as US markets awake this morning. The crack higher at around 8:07ET caused the futures market to be halted after 3,000 Gold Futures contracts traded in one second at 08:07:45 on December 10, 2013 sending the price up $10 and tripping circuit breakers for 10 seconds. Silver is now +4% on the week and gold +2.5% as Treasuries are also bid. Stocks are stumbling overnight, driven by the “fundamentals” of a drop in EURJPY after it tagged 142 overnight and fell back. PMs spiking again at the US open…

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation Blames Free Speech for “Islamophobia” in West – (How About Chopping Heads Off, Or Blowing Up Innocent People, Murdering Any Person Who Refuses To Follow The Scum Of The Earth, Pig Of A Sub-Human Mohammed)rc
Soeren Kern 12-11-13 The Organization of Islamic Cooperation, an influential bloc of 57 Muslim countries, has released the latest edition of its annual “Islamophobia” report.
The “Sixth OIC Observatory Report on Islamophobia: October 2012-September 2013″ is a 94-page document purporting to “offer a comprehensive picture of Islamophobia, as it exists mainly in contemporary Western societies.”
Do you wonder why our Great Lakes water levels are at historic lows? Read this article about our President and the Nestle Corporation. Water is being shipped in ships for sale in China, earning Nestle up to $1.8 million per day. “Plunging water levels are beyond anyone’s control,” says another expert, James Weakley. But in one of our most popular posts, last year we warned, “Lake Michigan water is being shipped by boat loads over to China! By using a little known loophole in the 2006 Great Lakes Compact, Obama minions are allowing Nestle Company to export precious fresh water out of Lake Michigan to the tune of an estimated $500,000 to $1.8 million per day profit.” Recent heavy rains and snowfall may mitigate low Lake Michigan water levels somewhat, but this trend must be stopped NOW.Read more at http://www.westernjournalism.com/obamas-blessing-nations-water-supply-disappearing/#g0E29iI6Kc5OM1Pk.99 http://www.westernjournalism.com/obamas-blessing-nations-water-supply-disappearing/
Taxpayers Lose $10.5B on GM According to The Washington Times, “Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew announced Tuesday that the government sold its remaining shares in the Detroit automaker,” General Motors. And it netted taxpayers a loss of only $10.5 billion! “The government received 912 million GM shares, or a 60.8 percent stake, in exchange for a $49.5 billion bailout during the financial crisis in 2008 and 2009,” the Times reports. “It recovered $39 billion of the money, meaning taxpayers came up more than $10 billion short.” On there other hand, this might just be the most “profitable” investment we’ve seen yet under this administration.
Baker Loses Rights On Friday, Administrative Law Judge Robert N. Spencer ruled that the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop near Denver must bake for and sell cakes to homosexual couples for their same-sex ceremonies. Last year, the Christian bakery owner turned away two men who “married” in Massachusetts but wanted a reception in Colorado. FRC’s Tony Perkins offers this rebuttal: “The President’s HHS mandate insists on the same kind of viewpoint capitulation. … Americans are being required to do something the Founders never intended: separate their values from their vocations. If Jack Phillips, Barronelle Stutzman, Elaine Huguenin, or Hobby Lobby want to serve the Lord full time, the First Amendment encourages it. What it doesn’t encourage are judges like Spencer, who trample Americans’ rights as a way of inventing others.”
Congress Re-Bans Plastic Guns Years ago, the “Glock 7 handgun” was an all-plastic movie prop. In response to the very idea of a plastic gun, Congress dutifully passed the Undetectable Firearms Act to ban such horrifying weapons. This week, both the House and Senate rode to the rescue, renewing the bill as it was about to expire. 3D printable guns have made headlines in recent months, meaning Congress had a convenient justification for acting quickly. At least they didn’t expand the law any further, though the fight against gun control will never be over.

Dr. Jack Wheeler The O-man, Barack Hussein Obama, is an eloquently tailored empty suit. No resume, no accomplishments, no experience, no original ideas, no understanding of how the economy works, no understanding of how the world works, no balls, nothing but abstract, empty rhetoric devoid of real substance.
He has no real identity. He is half-white, which he rejects. The rest of him is mostly Arab, which he hides but is disclosed by his non-African Arabic surname and his Arabic first and middle names as a way to triply proclaim his Arabic parentage to people in Kenya . Only a small part of him is African Black from his Luo grandmother, which he pretends he is exclusively.
What he isn’t, not a genetic drop of, is ‘African-American,’ the descendant of enslaved Africans brought to America chained in slave ships. He hasn’t a single ancestor who was a slave. Instead, his Arab ancestors were slave owners. Slave-trading was the main Arab business in East Africa for centuries until the British (mostly) ended it.
Hope For Skeptics

Bible in a Year: Hosea 5-8; Revelation 2
Randy Kilgore As a workplace chaplain, I’m privileged to be in conversation with many different people. Some are skeptics of the Christian faith. I’ve discovered three major hurdles that keep them from trusting in Christ for salvation.
The first barrier, surprisingly, isn’t an unwillingness to believe that God exists; instead some doubt that they’re important enough for God’s attention. Second, some believe they are unworthy of His forgiveness. People are often their own harshest judges. The third hurdle? They wonder why God is not communicating with them if He is out there.
Let’s work backward through the hurdles to see what God’s Word says. First, God doesn’t play head games. He promises that if we read His Word, He will make sure it accomplishes His purpose (Isa. 55:11). In other words, if we read it we will discover that God is communicating with us. This is precisely why the Bible speaks so often of His grace and mercy toward all (v.7). His willingness to forgive surpasses our own. Once we learn that we can hear God in the Bible and once we see the emphasis on His mercy, it becomes easier to believe we have His attention when we cry out to Him.
God’s story is amazing. It can give hope for all of us. There can be times when one’s mind is in doubt, Times when one asks what the faith is about; But we can believe Him, we know that He cares—Our God is real, as the Bible declares. —Fitzhugh
Honest skepticism can be the first step to a strong faith.

It’s Reasonable To Wonder How Many Western Leaders In South Africa For Mandela’s Memorial Today Have Been Keeping Their Tears Of Grief In Check Since June. He Died In June And Had Been Kept On Life Support Until Everything Was In Place For The Announcement. EVERYTHING Obama DOES Or SAYS Is STAGED To Impact His Sheople Followers. And That Includes His Lap Dog Media.
Judi McLeod 12-10-13 President Barack Obama may have already known the real date of Nelson Mandela’s death and studiously planned funeral when he made his June 2013 African trip—and was even able to take the photo he would later Tweet on the day of Mandela’s officially announced death while he was still in South Africa.
Claiming to defer to Mandela family members on visiting the ailing Mandela during his June 28-30 whistle-stop trip through Johannesburg, Obama instead met with South African President Jacob Zuma.
Zuma was one of the key figures who kept the news that doctors had been keeping Mandela alive in a vegetative state, a top world secret.
Among thousands of news outlets, only one newspaper made a valiant attempt to get the true story out and keep it there.
According to the read-by-millions Las Vegas Guardian Express, Mandela died on June 26th, 2013, but was kept on life support until December 2013.
FORGET WARM, FUZZY DEMOCRATS – THEY’VE LEARNED A LOT ABOUT TERRORISM TACTICS SINCE OBAMA IN OFFICE TO TEACH THEM “CHIGAGO STYLE” POLITICS – EVEN THREATENING FAMILY MEMBERS (See Below)
Dr. Eowyn 12-10-13 The Left like to congratulate themselves for being “tolerant,” “open-minded,” warm and fuzzy bleeding hearts, as opposed to those intolerant, bigoted, nasty, hateful, murderous right-wingers.
Ha! A classic case of psychological projection. Latest example:
Erin Gloria Ryan, the news editor of a feminist blog Jezebel.com, wishes that Wisconsin’s Republican governor Scott Walker had died in a fiery car crash in Southern California on Nov. 30, 2013, instead of actor Paul Walker.
That evening at 7:14 p.m., Ryan tweeted (Source: BizPacReview):Jezebel bills itself as a feminist blog aimed at women’s interests, under the tagline “Celebrity, Sex, Fashion for Women. Without Airbrushing.” It is one of several blogs owned by Gawker Media.
After receiving critical tweets from conservatives, Ryan deleted the tweet before posting an apology: “No excuse. It was dumb. I’m sorry,” followed by another one a short time later: “I don’t wish death on anyone. Joking about that was insensitive and inappropriate.”
A conservative, John Sitkiewicz @Jrock41S, sent this tweet to Ryan: “@morninggloria It would go a long way if you tweeted an apology to Gov. Walker.”
But M. D. Kittle reports for the new site Watchdog that as of Dec. 2, 2013, Ryan has not apologized to Gov. Walker.
In his new book, Unintimidated: A Governor’s Story and a Nation’s Challenge, Gov. Walker details some of the vile death threats he’d received over the Wisconsin’s public employees union bargaining reform known as Act 10.Death threats were even made at the governor’s wife, Tonette Walker, who received this anonymous letter:
“Has Wisconsin ever had a governor assassinated? Scott’s heading that way. Or maybe your sons getting killed would hurt him more. I want him to feel the pain.”
The writer of the letter also knows the names of Mrs. Walker’s parents, and claims to have followed the Walkers’ two sons to their school in Wauwatosa.
