Iranian Sentenced To Blinding For Acid Attack Pardoned

Confortare tantum et esto robustus valde, ut custodias et facias iuxta omnem legem, quam praecepit tibi Moyses servus meus. Ne declines ab ea ad dexteram vel ad sinistram, ut prospereris in omnibus, ad quaecumque perrexeris. (Joshua 1:7)

BBC News reports an Iranian man who was ordered to be blinded for carrying out an acid attack on a woman has been pardoned by his victim.

Ameneh Bahrami had demanded qisas, a rarely used retributive justice under Sharia law, but the report said she had forgone that right at the last minute.

A court had backed Ms Bahrami's demand in 2008 that Majid Movahedi be blinded.

He attacked Ms Bahrami in 2004 after she had refused his offer of marriage, leaving her severely disfigured.

The Isna news agency quoted Tehran prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi as saying: "Today in hospital the blinding of Majid Movahedi was to have been carried out in the presence of an eye specialist and judiciary representative, when Ameneh pardoned him".

Ms Bahrami was quoted on Iranian TV as saying: "I never wanted to have revenge on him. I just wanted the sentence to be issued for retribution. But I would not have carried it out. I had no intention of taking his eyes from him".

Isna quoted Ms Bahrami's mother as saying: "I am proud of my daughter... Ameneh had the strength to forgive Majid. This forgiveness will calm Ameneh and our family".

We live in a sad world where beautiful women are attacked with acid.

If there is love, you can see that in the eyes of the person.

If there is no love, why insist?

Unfortunately, most of us often only see what we want to see.

In a way we are all blinded.

We create our own laws when there is a Divine Law.

It is like when Isaac blessed Esau, but it was in fact Jacob.

The intention was for the Latin language, but it was given to the Hebrew.

Then Jesus - the Latinized form of Esau - came as King of the Jews, but He was understood by no one.

We created our own Priests contrary to the word of God, who ordained the Levites to serve Him forever.

As the Romans were upright and truthful, they were promised power and riches.

But that is not how the world looks like today.

It is difficult to build a better world with all this evil around us.

God, mercy, and justice, are unfortunately all too often replaced with other things that seem good, but which lacks substance.

We need to set our hearts right with God.

Norway Massacre: Music Inspired Anders Behring Breivik To Violence

Sicut enim corpus sine spiritu emortuum est, ita et fides sine operibus mortua est. (James 2:26)

Norway has held its first funerals for the at least 77 victims of the bomb and shooting massacre.

At the police questioning, Breivik said he got his inspiration to commit the terrible massacre from music.

During the massacre Breivik listened to music, which he said kept him calm and focused.

When he was arrested Breivik wore earphones to his MP3 player.

Breivik wrote in his manifesto he would use the maximum volume level in his MP3 player to suppress eventual fear.

The music which inspired Breivik the most is the requiem Lux Aeterna by the British artist Clint Mansell.

Apparently Breivik listened to this music at the maximum volume level while he shot his young victims one by one at Utoya island.

Breivik said he just could put "Lux Aeterna" by Clint Mansell on repeat, because it is "such a powerful song".

He said the combination of these factors will provide an extremely focused and a deadly power - a "one-man-army".

"Lux Aeterna" means "eternal light" and is according to Breivik a fitting title for himself.

Brevik said: "I have listened to the song hundreds of times and I never seem to get tired of it".

Breivik applauds the Norwegian singer Helene Bøksle, who made the music to the computer game ”Age of Conan”.

He says her music is very powerful and motivating and worthy to listen to during a martyr operation.

Breivik had considered attacking the Royal Palace because of its symbolic value.

This is the music he wants to listen to when he dies, he says.

Breivik added listening to that music "is the most honorable way to die a martyr during combat".

All forms of art are very powerful; music, paintings, and sculptures.

The forces of pure evil and destruction always understood the high value of art.

Hopefully, the value of art as a positive force in both our societies and in our private lives will now be more focused upon.

It is very sad it is a crazy murderer, rather than the political leadership, that tells of the importance of music and art in our lives and in our societies.

Our emotions will ultimately always be ruled by art.

American Budget Crisis Over Debt Ceiling

Mali autem homines et seductores proficient in peius, in errorem mittentes et errantes. (2 Timothy 3:13)

U.S. President Barack Obama's performance as commander in chief leaves much to be desired, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The U.S. is busted.

That's not primarily because of its foreign policy engagements, which have been a good investment.

It is mainly because America's political leaders have overburdened the productive sector with social obligations that cannot be fulfilled.

The Telegraph wrote Barack Obama warned Republican leaders that they risked tipping the world back into a recession and throwing "millions of more people out of work" unless they could reach a deal with him on increasing the U.S.'s debt.

With a fast-approaching August 2 deadline for the debt ceiling President Obama demands a "balanced" approach of tax increases.

President Obama told Republicans to eat their peas over debt.

White House Press Secretary, Jay Carney, said the President is prepared to eat peas "until the cows come home".

Nancy Pelosi is convinced there will not be an agreement on raising the debt ceiling, according to Weekly World News.

Pelosi predicted that the markets collapsing will cause riots and revolutions and then there will be volcanoes, earthquakes, "and the Earth’s core will explode".

Pelosi said, "The Tea Party has ruined the world. When the history of the universe is written, the Tea Party will be the villains that caused the world as we know it to end. The Tea Party, collectively, is Satan".

Pelosi ended her press conference by saying, "have a nice day".

God Will Feed His People With Manna Again

Et datae sunt mulieri duae alae aquilae magnae, ut volaret in desertum in locum suum, ubi alitur per tempus et tempora et dimidium temporis a facie serpentis. (Revelation 12:14)

"Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end", see Deuteronomy 8:16.

God gave miraculously manna to the Israelites in the Exodus, after the food they had brought with them out of Egypt had run out.

The Israelites found it one morning after the dew had evaporated.

Upon the face of the wilderness there lay a small round thing, as small as the hoar frost on the ground.

Manna caused the Israelites to submit to the Lord.

God did this by imposing sanctions – the manna stank and grew worms when they left it overnight.

Furthermore, the Lord did not give them any on the Sabbath.

They had to collect double on Friday as instructed. This did not decay.

As a result, the Jews learnt that God meant what He said and obeyed His Word.

Now, everything in the Bible happens at least twice, and the Lord will feed the Jews with manna again for three and a half years, as He promises in the book of Revelation 12:14.

But it is the Levites that will administer the manna machine, which is described in the Zohar, one of the books of the Kabbalah.

The machine is nuclear powered and is processing a kind of algae-culture.

The Israelites brought the manna machine with them from Egypt.

Maybe this technology one day will be used to help the starving in the world?

Human Brains Shrinking At Alarming Rate

Et unum de capitibus suis quasi occisum in mortem, et plaga mortis eius curata est. Et admirata est universa terra post bestiam. (Revelation 13:3)

Weekly World News reports that human brains for some unknown reason are shrinking.

But is it just the brain size, which is shrinking?

Human brains shrink as people grow old, unlike even our closest animal relative.

A new study shows human brains are 17 percent smaller than they were even back in 1930.

A research team leader of the National Academy of Sciences said: "We already knew that human brains shrink as they age, but when we compared brains from today with brains from the 1930s, 1960s and 1990s, we noticed an alarming trend – human brains are shrinking".

People in the fields of politics, entertainment, blogging, and the legal professions are experiencing even more shrinkage.

The shrinkage seems to diminish the brain’s ability to process thoughts and memories and signals to the rest of the body.

"To put it bluntly, humans are becoming stupider", said Dr. John Holmes of the National Academy of Sciences.

Intriguingly, the brains of monkeys seem to be growing in size.

Will humans soon be less intelligent than monkeys?

Anders Behring Breivik May Be Charged With Crimes Against Humanity

In principio creavit Deus caelum et terram. (Genesis 1:1)

Images of dead and missing people in the Norway massacre are now published.

The suspect may face crimes against humanity charges, according to France 24.

Anders Behring Breivik is currently facing terror-related charges carrying a maximum 21-year sentence.

If convicted of crimes against humanity he could receive a 30-year sentence.

Anders Breivik is said to be a Christian, a conservative, and a zionist.

Myself, I think he rather is an evil madman and a mass murderer.

1 John 3:15 states that "no murderer hath eternal life".

A person who takes innocent lives will never experience eternal life or see paradise.

In fact, the Bible prescribes capital punishment for murder.

Leviticus 24:17 states: "If anyone takes the life of a human being, he must be put to death".

I don't like the death penalty and it should generally be avoided.

However, in this case, capital punishment should be used against Anders Behring Breivik, according to the Divine Law.

On Friday morning Breivik wrote that "today you will become immortal".

But what he did was criminal and had nothing in common with the values of Christianity, conservatism, or zionism.

In Exodus 22:21 we read, "Do not mistreat an alien or oppress him, for you were aliens in Egypt".

What we find in the Bible is actually knowledge and wisdom much older than the Bible itself.

Most of the Bible - Christ, the laws, and the temple - has Egyptian origins and much can be found in the Egyptian Book of the Dead.

"You shall not abhor an Edomite; for he is your brother: you shall not abhor an Egyptian; because you were a stranger in his land", see Deuteronomy 23:7.

"Timidis autem et incredulis et exsecratis et homicidis et fornicatoribus et veneficis et idololatris et omnibus mendacibus, pars illorum erit in stagno ardenti igne et sulphure, quod est mors secunda", Revelation 21:8.

Anders Behring Breivik Supporter Of Pam Geller And Richard Pipes

Tunc dixit David: "Illicitum est, ut a quocumque portetur arca Dei, nisi a Levitis, quos elegit Dominus ad portandum eam et ad ministrandum sibi usque in aeternum". (1 Chronicles 15:2)

Anders Behring Breivik went on a rampage Friday night and killed more than 90 people, most of them children, at a summer camp sponsored by Norway’s ruling Labor party.

Breivik, a conservative Zionist wrote in his manifesto: "So let us fight together with Israel, with our Zionist brothers against all anti-Zionists, against all cultural Marxists/multiculturalists".

The American blog of Wayne Madsen, who says he is a former U.S. military analyst, wrote that Breivik has been a "supporter of such vile Zionist Islamophobes as Pam Geller and Richard Pipes".

Breivik states a passionate loathing of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi program of the Third Reich.

The terrible massacre in Norway is blamed on the massive immigration of foreigners, and of Norway's willingness to recognize a Palestinian state.

It happened after Norway's Foregn Minister Jonas Gahr Store promised to recognize a Palestinian state.

God always punishes countries which exhibit anti-Jew behavior.

A Palestinian-controlled Judea, Samaria, and Jerusalem, will become a terror state, according to the Palestinians themselves.

The attack on Oslo came exactly 65 years to the day after the Israeli Irgun blew up the King David Hotel in Jerusalem that also left over 90 people dead.

It is believed God let the tragedy happen in Norway because of Norway's disrespect of God's holy people.

If God's people are not allowed to live in peace in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria, it will be no great surprise if what happened at the Norwegian capital Oslo, also happen to all other capital cities in the West.

It is wrong to blame the terrible Norwegian massacre on mass immigration to Norway, because the gunman is a Norwegian man, who in cold blood gunned down unarmed Norwegian teenagers at a summer camp, because he did not want them to grow up Jew haters.

Immigration is not a problem, but bad people are.

The connection of the mass murder to Norwegian anti-Jew foreign policy is undeniable.

The turmoil it causes now resulted in this tragedy.

It is always evil and stupid to go against God's will for Israel.

It will always be totally unacceptable to kill innocent children.

Mournful Fans Bid Farewell To Amy Winehouse

Sicut enim corpus sine spiritu emortuum est, ita et fides sine operibus mortua est. (James 2:26)

Tributes are being paid to singer Amy Winehouse, who was found dead at her London home at the age of 27, according to BBC News.

Winehouse's distinctive style made her a muse for fashion designers such as Karl Lagerfeld.

TV presenter Kelly Osbourne tweeted: "i cant even breath right now im crying so hard i just lost 1 of my best friends. i love you forever Amy & will never forget the real you!".

Winehouse was credited as an influence in the rise in popularity of female musicians and soul music.

It is very tragic when talented persons die too young.

Marilyn Monroe for example was only 36-years-old when she died, and now Amy Winehouse only 27.

At Least 91 Dead In Norway Attacks

Tunc dixit David: "Illicitum est, ut a quocumque portetur arca Dei, nisi a Levitis, quos elegit Dominus ad portandum eam et ad ministrandum sibi usque in aeternum". (1 Chronicles 15:2)

The Norwegian newspaper VG Nett reports Norwegian police are still searching for a second attacker in what is the worst violence in Norway since World War Two.

Norwegian police on Saturday described the main suspect in the twin bomb and shooting attacks that left at least 91 dead as a 32-year-old Christian fundamentalist, according to The Swedish Wire.

The gunman who killed at least 91 people in Norway on Friday has been named as Anders Behring Breivik.

Police chief Sveinung Sponheim said his internet postings "suggest that he has some political traits directed toward the right, and anti-Muslim views".

On the Facebook page attributed to him, he describes himself as a Christian and a conservative, according to the BBC.

Survivors of yesterday's shooting horror in Norway say the first thing the gunman did was to shoot the most beautiful girl he saw.

People played dead to stay alive, but the gunman approached to them and shot them through the head, according to survivors.

The Norwegian capital Oslo was bombed, and at least seven persons were killed there.

Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg was the main target, but luckily he was at home at the time the Oslo-bombing occurred.

Stoltenberg said the attacks were "like a nightmare".

At least 84 died on Utøya, an island hosting a social democrat youth camp, where the gunman went on the rampage.

It is feared that the death toll will rise, as police continue their search of the island on Saturday.

American newspapers initially guessed it was a terror act of islamists, while some European newspapers at first blamed Mossad and Jewish groups.

It seems that both guesses are very wrong and that the Norwegian terror act was orchestrated by two persons who can be described as Norwegian conservative Christians.

We have seen the result of the Greek-Orthodox religion.

In Russia, Christian Orthodoxy led to the bolshevik revolution and to communism.

Now Greece faces bankruptcy as it is Europe's poorest nation, because of that nation's incompetent spiritual leaders.

While the Catholic Church is rocked by thousands of serious pedophilia and sex abuse scandals, it now seems Protestantism will take a serious hit after this latest mass murder.

Conservative politicians and Protestant Church leaders in Norway must ask themselves how it comes that some of their politically and religiously active supporters obviously believe a better world can be created by killing their nation's left-wing youths.

Another Executive Sacked Over NOTW Scandal

Ergo dum tempus habemus, operemur bonum ad omnes, maxime autem ad domesticos fidei. (Galatians 6:10)

In a sign of further turmoil at News Corp, BBC News reported that a senior executive at the News of the World's sister paper, The Sun, had been sacked for matters relating to his previous job at the News of the World, according to France 24.

The management and standards committee of News Corporation, the parent company of News International, confirmed it had "terminated the contract of a member of staff in relation to his previous work".

The committee said while it was authorized to co-operate fully with all investigations it was also conducting its own enquiries where relevant.

Sun features editor Matt Nixson, previously deputy features editor at the News of the World, was marched out of the building that houses all News Corp's London newspapers, a senior journalist from Murdoch broadsheet the Times of London tweeted.

"Understand at one time Nixson worked on NOTW news desk under Ian Edmondson and Andy Coulson", the Times's Assistant News Editor David Rose wrote on his Twitter feed.

Coulson, the former editor of the News of the World, went on to become Prime Minister David Cameron's communications chief until he resigned in January.

I feel sorry for all the phone hacking victims, because they are not getting the packages of millions of pounds or a say in this affair, which mostly discusses the innocence of Rupert Murdoch, his news editors, and that the British Prime Minister David Cameron knew nothing about the phone hacking.

I also feel very sorry for the millions of Rupert Murdoch's loyal newspaper readers, who now are abandoned and suddenly find themselves without The News of the World they so loved to read and became used to.

Sometimes I wonder if some newspapers run our countries by proxy...

Rebekah Brooks: Phone-Hacking Payments Were Not My Responsibility

Dixit illi Iohannes: "Magister, vidimus quendam in nomine tuo eicientem daemonia". (Mark 9:38)

France 24 reports British Prime Minister David Cameron expressed "regret" on Wednesday at his decision to hire Andy Coulson, the former editor of the now defunct News of the World tabloid, in front of an extraordinary session of parliament.

Cameron said that Coulson had told him that he was unaware of phone-hacking.

"If it turns out I have been lied to, that would be a moment for a profound apology", Cameron told members of parliament.

An opinion poll this week showed Britons’ satisfaction with Cameron had fallen to its lowest level since he entered office in May last year.

Of course things will always be better with a conservative Prime Minister anyway.

The only thing you will get with the left-wing at power is higher unemployment, more taxes, and less freedom.

According to The Guardian, former News International chief executive, Rebekah Brooks, approved payments to private detectives.

Rupert Murdoch believes that media conglomerates need every advantage they can – and that witchcraft is "a valuable weapon" to win over readers and viewers, according to Weekly World News.

Rupert Murdoch testified the phone-hacking scandal happened because Rebekah Brooks is a witch.

It seems the press has come under bad influence from the New Age movement.

BBC News reports the police team investigating phone-hacking has been boosted from 45 to 60 officers, Scotland Yard has said.

In the Lords, Liberal Democrat peer Baroness Doocey said she raised concerns in February about meetings between senior police officers and News of the World executives.

If it is true Brooks belonged to a Coven in Camdentown and dabbled in the black arts in Blackpool, the Pope's chief exorcist could give some well needed help to bring this phone hacking scandal to an end.

Rupert Murdoch Attacked At U.K. Parliament Hearing

Et illi quidem, qui de filiis Levi sacerdotium accipiunt, mandatum habent decimas sumere a populo secundum legem, id est a fratribus suis, quamquam et ipsi exierunt de lumbis Abrahae. (Hebrews 7:5)

France 24 reports a British parliamentary hearing into the illegal phone-hacking scandal was briefly interrupted on Tuesday when an intruder wielding a plate of white foam targeted News Corp chief Rupert Murdoch.

Jonnie Marbles, the man who attacked Rupert Murdoch, revealed he is an American spy, according to Weekly World News.

Jonnie Marbles was beaten by Rupert Murdoch’s wife, Wendi Deng, at the hearing held in front of British MPs.

Murdoch was splattered but uninjured.

Wendi Deng rushed out of the hearing room and continued to beat Marbles senseless.

Deng also smashed a pumpkin pie into Marbles face.

Witness Andy Thompson, a member of the public from Vancouver, western Canada, said he saw the attacker lunge towards Murdoch holding a green bag with shaving foam in it.

"The sitting is suspended for 10 minutes," chairman John Whittingdale said.

When the session resumed, Murdoch was without his jacket.

Earlier, within seconds of the start of the session, two people stood up three rows behind them with signs reading "The People Vs Murdoch".

"Excuse me, can we not have that, please?", Whittingdale asked, before having the pair removed.

Jonnie Marbles had already been taken to Scotland Yard where he was grilled by detectives for over an hour.

He talked about his deep love for Rupert Murdoch and that he merely wanted to give Murdoch some pie.

"I slipped and lost my balance. His face was in the wrong place and he got hit with the pie. I never wanted that to happen. I love Rupert. I really love him", Marbles said.

Sitting before a panel of British MPs, Rupert Murdoch told the world that he is selling all his media properties - including Fox News - and "getting out of the media business", according to Weekly World News.

BBC News reports Rupert Murdoch said he cannot be held responsible for the scandal at the News of the World, saying he was let down by "people I trusted".

News Of The World Whistleblower Sean Hoare Found Dead

Sicut enim corpus sine spiritu emortuum est, ita et fides sine operibus mortua est. (James 2:26)

BBC News reports a former News of the World journalist who made phone-hacking allegations against the paper has been found dead.

Phone-hacking whistleblower Sean Hoare told the New York Times the practice was far more extensive than the paper acknowledged when police first investigated hacking claims.

According to The Daily Mail, police says the death of journalist Sean Hoare is "not thought to be suspicious", but that he probably killed himself.

Two days before former News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks was to testify before a Parliamentary Select Committee, she was arrested and charged, which unfortunately makes her unable to testify at the Committee on the basis that she is facing a criminal charge and does not want to say anything lest it incriminates her.

France 24 reports Scotland Yard’s deputy commissioner John Yates resigned Monday over the phone-hacking scandal engulfing members of the British police and press.

Yates’ boss, police commissioner Paul Stephenson, resigned Sunday over his ties to Neil Wallis, a former News of the World executive editor who has been arrested over the scandal.

British opposition leader Ed Miliband said PM David Cameron needs to answer "a whole series of questions" about his relationships with Brooks, James Murdoch, and Andy Coulson, the former News of the World editor later hired as Cameron’s communications chief.

The death of Sean Hoare opens a new chapter in this sinister phone-hacking scandal.

The Guardian newspaper says Hoare had long-term drink and drug problems.

Rebekah Brooks Arrested And Released On Bail

Et ideo mittit illis Deus operationem erroris, ut credant mendacio. (2 Thessalonians 2:11)

France 24 reports Scotland Yard chief Paul Stephenson resigned on Sunday while former News International chief Rebekah Brooks was arrested and released on bail.

The phone hacking scandal shaking Rupert Murdoch’s media empire escalated Monday, and it now eclipses Julian Assange and WikiLeaks.

The News of the World, which published its final edition a week ago, is alleged to have hacked up to 4.000 phones including that of murdered 13-year-old Milly Dowler.

Telephones of prominent decision makers have been hacked, such as politicians, military personnel, journalists, and also of terror and war victims families.

Les Hinton resigned as chief executive of Murdoch’s Dow Jones & Co which publishes The Wall Street Journal.

Earlier Fox News had come under fire, and now the London Police chief Paul Stephenson have resigned.

The police have come under fire from the public and politicians for failing to investigate the phone-hacking issue thoroughly in 2006 and, more recently, for allegedly taking bribes from News of the World, according to The Wall Street Journal.

British Prime Minister David Cameron was cutting short an Africa trip to fly home to deal with the crisis that has shaken Britons’ faith in the police, press, and political leaders.

U.S. President Barack Obama's telephone is said to have been hacked, as well as the phone of London Mayor Boris Johnson.

Rebekah Brooks Gets A Seven-Figure Severance Package

Erit enim tempus, cum sanam doctrinam non sustinebunt, sed ad sua desideria coacervabunt sibi magistros prurientes auribus. (2 Timothy 4:3)

The Daily Mail reports former News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks was given a seven-figure severance package after resigning.

Senior colleagues have estimated the pay off, handed out five days after the final edition of the News of the World she used to edit, to be around £3.5million.

News International’s chief executive Rebekah Brooks finally quit after Mr. Murdoch’s daughter Elisabeth allegedly blamed her for having ‘f*****’ the family firm.

Elisabeth Murdoch is also said to be deeply dismayed by her brother James’s handling of the scandal, according to News International sources.

Rupert Murdoch published an unprecedented public apology in several British newspapers, including the Daily Mail.

The now-defunct News of the World, he says, was in the business of holding others to account but had "failed when it came to itself".

"We are sorry for the serious wrongdoing that occurred", he added.

Ireland Censures Vatican On Sex Abuse Crimes

Ecce haec omnia operatur Deus duobus, tribus vicibus cum homine. (Job 33:29)

The Australian reports the Irish government has summoned the Vatican's ambassador for a rare face-to-face confrontation.

There is an looming anger over Rome's advise to Bishops not to report pedophile Priests to police.

This is clear evidence of how wrong it is to separate the religion from the state.

Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny, called the Vatican's role in placing the Church's canon law above Irish criminal law "absolutely disgraceful".

The only Priests the Bible recognizes are Levites.

Today there are numerous false religions.

They are easily recognized, because their Priests are not Levites.

Soon the Temple will be restored in Jerusalem as well as the Levitical Priesthood.

The role of the Church or of religion was never to constitute a state in the state, or to become an organization of sex abuse and crimes, untouchable by police and governments.

The Church and the State are inseparable, just as the secular is permeated by religion in every aspect.

When I drink a glass of whiskey I do it to the glory of God.

When I go to the movie I do it to the glory of God.

When I go to the Casino I do it to the glory of God.

Jesus Christ is a black Jew and He is also God.

As immortal God and eternal King of the Jews, Jesus Christ puts the whole Earth under the obedience of the Levitical Priesthood.

By the end of the day we are all Egyptians.

News International Chief Rebekah Brooks Resigns

Ipse Spiritus testimonium reddit spiritui nostro, quod sumus filii Dei. (Romans 8:16)

France 24 reports News International chief Rebekah Brooks resigned Friday morning.

Rebekah Brooks, a loyal lieutenant of Rupert Murdoch, resigned Friday as chief executive of his embattled British newspapers, becoming the biggest casualty so far in the phone hacking scandal at the now-defunct Sunday tabloid News of the World.

Rebekah Brooks wrote in her resignation letter, "I have worked here for 22 years and I know it to be part of the finest media company in the world".

Brooks continued: "News International is full of talented, professional, and honourable people. I am proud to have been part of the team and lucky to know so many brilliant journalists and media executives".

On Friday, former staff members at The News of the World questioned why Ms. Brooks had not resigned earlier.

"Our paper was sacrificed to save her career, and now she’s gone as well", one former employee said, according to The New York Times.

Weekly World News reports Rupert Murdoch is in talks with WWN’s Neil McGinnis to sell the shuttered London tabloid to Weekly World News.

Rupert Murdoch told BBC News: "Weekly World News is the only news organization that is capable of bringing respectability back to News of the World. We think WWN can revive the paper and make it the storied news gathering organization that it once was".

Meanwhile Los Angeles Times reports FBI opens an inquiry into Murdoch's News Corp.

At the request of U.S. lawmakers, alarmed by reports that British reporters may have tried to hack into phones and access records of Sept. 11 victims and their families, in violation of U.S. law, the agency now launches an investigation.

Rebekah Brooks said she now would focus on "correcting the distortions and rebutting the allegations" and would cooperate with a police inquiry into phone hacking and payments to corrupt police officers.

Happy 14 Of July!

Ipsius enim sumus factura, creati in Christo Iesu in opera bona, quae praeparavit Deus, ut in illis ambulemus. (Ephesians 2:10)

France 24 reports the annual military parade on Bastille Day, France’s national holiday, has been tainted by the deaths of six French troops in Afghanistan in the past two days.

The attack was the deadliest for French forces in the war-torn country in three years.

President Nicolas Sarkozy said that this year's July 14 holiday, which saw the French military display its might on the Champs Elysees in Paris while warplanes and helicopters roared overhead, would be dedicated to the dead soldiers.

In all, France has 13.500 personnel deployed in overseas trouble spots.

I came to France on June 25th last year.

France is a great country with a lot of people from all over the world.

Lyon, where I live is the gastronomic capital of the world.

The weather is fine and I look forward to the fireworks this evening.

Have a fabulous day everyone!

Vive La France!

Murdoch Hacked Obama

Attendite a fermento pharisaeorum, quod est hypocrisis. Nihil autem opertum est, quod non reveletur, neque absconditum, quod non sciatur. (Luke 12:1 - 2)

Weekly World News reveals that Rupert Murdoch’s News of the World has been hacking Obama’s blackberry.

President Obama has been hacked for two years!

President Obama was forced to give up his blackberry when he was inaugurated, but he received a new blackberry that only a very small group of people can access.

That phone has been hacked by News of the World.

Rupert Murdoch is being called in front of Congress to talk about the phone hacking scandal and the information he has obtained from President Barack Obama’s cellphone, information that could threaten national security.

The CIA will be interrogating Murdoch, and his son, James, today and they have not ruled out waterboarding either of them.

Enhanced Interrogation Specialist, Tom Hillstrom said: "This is precisely the situation that waterboarding was designed for. If Murdoch doesn’t talk, we must make him talk and find out what he knows about Obama and his plans for America".

Democrats in Congress didn’t think waterboarded was "strong enough" for Murdoch.

"He should be hung!", said one senior Democrat in the Senate.

There are rumors that President Obama will be in the room when Rupert Murdoch and his son are waterboarded.

Murdoch owns Fox News and the White House has long suspected that the network has "had it out" for President Obama and his administration.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said: "This is the evidence we need to shut down Fox News for good".

Murdoch’s London-based newspaper News of the World closed on Sunday after numerous reports surfaced that employees of the paper had allegedly hacked the phones and voice mails of a murdered British teenager and of families of soldiers killed in action.

News of the World staffers contacted a New York City police officer about hacking 9/11 victims’ phones.

Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Jay Rockefeller said: "I am concerned that the admitted phone hacking in London by the News Corp. may have extended to 9/11 victims or other Americans. If they did, the consequences will be severe".

The ongoing scandal seems to be far from over, and it has already led to a handful of arrests.

Fire Destroys Manhattan's Kehilath Jeshurun Synagogue

Tunc dixit David: "Illicitum est, ut a quocumque portetur arca Dei, nisi a Levitis, quos elegit Dominus ad portandum eam et ad ministrandum sibi usque in aeternum". (1 Chronicles 15:2)

The New York Times reports an Upper East Side Synagogue that was being renovated, was destroyed by fire Monday night.

"It went up like that", said Stephen L. Ruzow, chairman of the FDNY Foundation and a member of the Synagogue.

The Synagogue, which is 110 years old, was being renovated and no one was inside, according to Rabbi Haskel Lookstein.

The Torah scrolls had been removed, thank goodness.

Rabbi Lookstein said: "We’re lucky, because every Torah scroll is as special as a human life".

Obama Sells NASA To Russia

Non enim est occultum, quod non manifestetur, nec absconditum, quod non cognoscatur et in palam veniat. (Luke 8:17)

Weekly World News reports that after the Space Shuttle Atlantis blasted off for the last time, President Obama sold NASA – and all its parts – to Russia.

When asked about whether the Americans can trust the Russians to take care of the employees of NASA, Obama said, "Putin promised me that he would take good care of our NASA employees and I trust him. I have no reason not to trust him".

"For the final time, good luck, godspeed, and have a little fun up there", launch director Mike Leinbach told the shuttle crew before lift off.

He said: "American ingenuity is alive and well, and it will fire up the Russian economy — and help us win the future".

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said: "We are not closing NASA. We are transferring the employees to Moscow".

Carney added: "If the Russians don’t take over NASA, who will?".

"America will continue the dream, but Russia will be busy actually executing the dream", the launch director said as Atlantis lifted-off on its 33rd and last flight.

Obama told reporters that he didn’t watch the final Space Shuttle launch: "I wanted to catch it, but I had an early tee time".

U.K. Tabloid News Of The World Publishes Last Ever Issue

Hac libertate nos Christus liberavit; state et nolite iterum iugo servitutis contineri. (Galatians 5:1)

France 24 reports the 168-year old British tabloid News of the World published its last ever edition Sunday with a montage of its best-known splashes.

The Sunday Times said at least nine journalists and three police officers were facing jail in connection with the hacking scandal and quoted senior police officers as saying it was likely there would be further arrests soon.

James Murdoch decided Thursday to close the publication following the controversial phone hacking scandal.

The scandal has raised questions about relations between politicians, including Prime Minister David Cameron - who hired a former editor of the paper as his spin doctor - and media barons such as News Corp chairman and chief executive Murdoch, 80.

It has also brought to light accusations that journalists working for Murdoch and others illegally paid police for information.

The final edition of the newspaper was published on Sunday as Rupert Murdoch headed to London to try to save the bigger prize of his takeover of the British broadcaster BSkyB.

Editor Colin Myler told the media scum outside its east London offices: "This is not where we wanted to be and it's not where we deserve to be, but as a final tribute to 7.5 million readers, this is for you and for the staff, thank you!".

Accusations that the eavesdropping stretched to missing children, relatives of those killed in the 2005 attacks on London's transport network, and families of soldiers killed in action, have triggered a huge public outcry.

Murdoch, who made the News of the World his first British newspaper acquisition in 1969, told Reuters he expected to leave for London on Saturday afternoon or Sunday and was not planning any management changes as a result of the crisis.

British police on Friday arrested Andy Coulson, the former spokesman for Cameron who had resigned as News of the World editor in 2007 after one of his reporters and a private investigator were convicted of hacking the phones of aides to the Royal family.

A senior police officer told the Sunday Telegraph that voicemail hacking had been "standard practice" at the News of the World and that its executives had failed to cooperate fully with police during an investigation in 2005-06.

Some 200 people at the News of the World are now losing their jobs.

Reporters, editors, and production staff walked out of the News of the World's offices in east London for the last time en masse on Saturday night and lined up before the world's cameras waiting to capture a piece of media history.

The Guardian said on Saturday police were investigating evidence that a News International executive may have deleted millions of emails from an internal archive in an attempt to hamper investigations.

When Weekly World News complained Murdoch’s News of the World hacked into the cellphones of top reporters at WWN, News of The World responded to the findings saying: "We just got confused. News of the World is very similar to Weekly World News. We were trying to hack into ourselves, but things went awry".

WWN reporter Garrett Hawley said: "I feel like I’ve been violated. They’ve published details of my relationship with Jennifer Aniston. It’s horrifying".

Thanks to The New York Times, a stone has been lifted on a whole squirming zoo of low life in the News of the Screws.

Woman Shows Up Two Guys

Girls usually have better mental growth than boys.

That is why the bride should have less age than the bridegroom.

Brzezinski Predicts Middle Class Unrest

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Sine offensione estote Iudaeis et Graecis et ecclesiae Dei. (1 Corinthians 10:32)

Infowars reports former U.S. National Security Advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski, predicts "really serious international turmoil", as a result of the United States, Europe, and Japan, the three traditional pillars of global economic strength, struggling with deep financial crises.

Growing rage, caused by economic and social disenfranchisement, could certainly threaten the existing power structure, and not only in the U.S., but also here in Europe.

Recently, there has been some revolutions in the Middle East, but we are still far from an economic Armageddon or tribulation.

UFO Found At The Bottom Of The Baltic Sea?

Sicut ergo accepistis Christum Iesum Dominum, in ipso ambulate. (Colossians 2:6)

io9 reports that on June 19, maritime treasure hunters — who were looking for priceless submerged hooch in shipwrecks — discovered a 60-meter-diameter circle 87 meters under the Baltic Sea between Sweden and Finland.

It could be a natural ground formation, according to Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet.

But maybe it is a UFO, because next to the circle is a 300 meter long slide track - as if the circle has traveled across the seabed before it has settled.

Experts rule out theories that it is a depth bomb or mine from the First World War.

The object is massive and it seems to be made of steel.

It even looks similar to the remains of the Millennium Falcon.

Kate Middleton Is Pregnant

Fidelis autem Dominus est, qui confirmabit vos et custodiet a Malo. (2 Thessalonians 3:3)

Weekly World News reports Kate Middleton is pregnant with Prince William’s first child.

"Prince William and Princess Kate spent over fifteen hours in the Royal Wedding Suite", said Royal butler, Thomas Hillstrom, and added, "They spent quite a lot of time enjoying each other’s company".

Rumors are there’s been a lot of moaning coming from the Royal Suite.

Queen Elizabeth is reportedly thrilled to learn that she will have her first great-grandchild.

But according to WWN Prince Charles is not so happy.

"What’s the point of having a baby, when the world is about to burn up. We must all stop using fossil fuels, we must kill all the cows, and we must plant as many trees as possible", Prince Charles said before getting onto his private jet in Los Angeles with twenty-five members of his staff.

It is always wonderful with great news and I wish the Royal couple all the best.

Man Struck By Lightning For The Sixth Time

Ego movebo non solum terram sed et caelum. (Hebrews 12:26)

WYFF Greenville reports Melvin Roberts, 58, is recovering at Oconee Memorial Hospital, after being struck by lightning for the sixth time.

His wife, Martha Roberts, said that her husband was outside trying to cover his lawn mower when he was struck.

Neighbors found Roberts lying unconscious in the yard.

Melvin Roberts got a wound on his foot and blisters on his ankles.

Roberts had to give up his work as a heavy equipment operator due to injuries from previous lightning strikes that have left him permanently disabled.

Melvin Roberts said he was struck several times over the last several years, and in the last case in 2007, it was not even raining when it happened.

Roberts said: "I went to cover my chickens up, and I believe it was clear. But when I woke up, I was all bloody and burned and confused and had my little chickens lying with their feet up".

Poor chickens!

Melvin Roberts said that his love life has paralleled his experience with lightning, but that’s about to change.

Roberts said: "I've been married five times and I've been hit by lightning five times. (My wife) says this is the sixth time. I'm not leaving my wife, so I'm going to have to try to do something different".

Roberts said: "It can happen to anybody".

Who knows, after surviving six lightning bolts, Melvin Roberts might now possess amazing healing powers?

Happy Fourth of July!

Over at the conservative blog of Donald Douglas - American Power - I found this charming video of Anne V from Sports Illustrated, as Donald continues another Rule 5 weekend.

Donald never misses an opportunity to add some hot babe blogging in the midst of his accurate and sharp neoconservative analyzis of current politics.

I agree with Donald that Anne V is one gorgeous lady.

Have a fabulous Sunday everyone!

Strauss-Kahn Released Amid Doubts About Witness

Carissimi, si sic Deus dilexit nos, et nos debemus alterutrum diligere. (1 John 4:11)

France 24 reports former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn was released from house arrest on Friday, after prosecutors acknowledged there were serious doubts about the credibility of the hotel maid who accused him of sexual assault.

Mr. Strauss-Kahn remains charged with forcing the woman to give him oral sex after trying to rape her, before fleeing and being arrested aboard a flight on the tarmac of JFK airport, minutes away from take-off for Paris.

The French Socialist, who had been expected to stand against Nicolas Sarkozy for the French Presidency in 2012, was forced to resign as head of the International Monetary fund five days later, his career apparently in tatters.

Allies of Dominique Strauss-Kahn have said he could make a political comeback in France now that he has been freed from house arrest in the U.S.

The Manhattan prosecutors face a more difficult task now that the accuser has been found to have lied on several occasions, including about what happened immediately after the purported attack.

According to The New York Times twenty-eight hours after a housekeeper at the Sofitel New York said she was sexually assaulted by Dominique Strauss-Kahn, she spoke by phone to a boyfriend in an immigration jail in Arizona.

Investigators with the Manhattan district attorney’s office learned the call had been recorded and had it translated from a "unique dialect of Fulani", a language from the woman’s native country, Guinea, according to a well-placed law enforcement official.

When the conversation was translated — a job completed only this Wednesday — investigators were alarmed: "She says words to the effect of, 'Don’t worry, this guy has a lot of money. I know what I’m doing', " the official said.

Little by little, her credibility as a witness crumbled — she had lied about her immigration, about being gang raped in Guinea, about her experiences in her homeland, and about her finances, according to two law enforcement officials.

She had been linked to people suspected of crimes.

She changed her account of what she did immediately after the encounter with Mr. Strauss-Kahn.

Sit-downs with prosecutors became tense, even angry.

Initially composed, she later collapsed in tears and got down on the floor during questioning.

She became unavailable to investigators from the district attorney’s office for days at a time.

Now the phone call raised yet another problem: it seemed as if she hoped to profit from whatever occurred in Suite 2806.

Here in France the Socialist MP, Jean-Marie Le Guen, said Mr. Strauss-Kahn will be present for the French Presidential campaign.

Le Guen added: "If what we heard is true, that the American justice will free him and re-habilitate him, give him back his honor and dignity. Then, since Dominique Strauss-Kahn is a fighter, he will fight in our country".

It seems the man who had been written out of the script for next year's French Presidential elections is back in the running...

Are You Ready For The Perfect Solar Storm?

Ego movebo non solum terram sed et caelum. (Hebrews 12:26)

Soon a great flood will sweep the whole planet.

But according to Popular Science, one of the biggest disasters we face would begin about 18 hours after the sun spit out a 10-billion-ton ball of plasma.

When the ball, a charged cloud of particles called a coronal mass ejection (CME), struck the Earth, electrical currents would spike through the power grid.

Transformers would be destroyed. Lights would go out. Food would spoil, and the entire transportation system would be shut down.

A high volume of loss of life is very likely, just from the looting and robberies.

Solar storms back in 1859 and 1921 caused worldwide chaos, wiping out telegraph wires on a massive scale.

But how can we avoid mass panic, and from the elderly and faint hearted?

In our secular societies it would be difficult to implement the theology of crowd control.

Computers and everything digital would break down.

Our nuclear power plants’ emergency backup systems are currently insufficient.

Nuclear power plants would be left without power for one to two years.

But we would get rid of all the satellites, which can be used as weapons of mass destruction.

Anyway, we need to build protection against 100-year solar storms.

We know it is coming, and it will be worse than most of us can imagine since it will wipe out the entire planet's power grid.
