Is Rick Santorum the only candidate who can provide a clear contrast with Barack Obama?
Or is he, as his opponent Mitt Romney argues, little more than a Bush-era big-spender, a political insider?
Here in Arizona, most voters have already gone to the polls earlier today.
Not many days ago, Mitt Romney had a 20-point lead over Rick Santorum here in Arizona, but Romney has since then been steadily losing ground to Santorum.
It will be very interesting to see the final result of the vote later this evening.
If Rick Santorum can avoid a double digit loss to Romney in Arizona, and if he also wins the Michigan vote, he will probably be the Republican candidate who will confront Barack Obama in the Presidential race later this year.
I don't think Romney can win by tearing down his opponents with Blitzkrieg negative advertizing.
But I’m not at all sure that a Santorum/Romney collaboration is out of the question...
Arizona parents may soon see what text messages their children are sending and receiving, according to a bill making its way through the state Legislature, according to USA Today.
Republican state Sen. Rich Crandall has proposed a law to require cellphone companies to offer Arizona parents access to their minor children's texts.
Crandall said: "If I have a 13-year-old being harassed via text, I can't call and get those texts. This bill will allow me to at least pay to see the text messages for my children".
Phil Schneider was an ex-government engineer who was involved in building underground bases.
He was one of three people to survive the 1979 fire fight between the large Grays and U.S. intelligence and military forces at Dulce underground base.
In January 1996 he was found dead in his apartment with piano wire still wrapped around his neck.
Mr Schneider lectured on the Black Budget, which is a secretive budget that garners 25% of the gross national product of the United States.
Many trillions of dollars have sofar been spent on building over 100 large deep underground bases, which are large cities underground, connected by high-speed magneto-leviton trains that have speeds up to Mach 2.
The average depth of these bases is over a mile, and they are between 2.66 and 4.25 cubic miles in size.
They have laser drilling machines that can drill a tunnel seven miles long in one day.
I don't know if this project has anything to do with the so-called New World Order.
But today we have a beautiful day here in Phoenix, Arizona, where I'm currently at, and it's good to know that the Americans are prepared for less sunny days than today.
For every calendar year that transpires, military technology increases about 44.5 years compared with the increase rate of conventional technology.
68% of the military budget is said to directly or indirectly be affected by the Black Budget.
Special metals are for example milled in space and cannot be produced on the surface of the Earth.
I wonder, though, how prepared the rest of the world is for different threats like the alien threat?

Russian and Ukrainian intelligence services have in recent weeks acted jointly to thwart an assassination attempt on the Russian Prime Minister, Vladimir Putin, according to The New York Times.
Two would-be assassins were arrested in the Ukrainian city of Odessa.
They survived an explosion inside an apartment there, but a third man died in the blast.
The announcement came less than a week before the Russian Presidential election on Sunday.
In the video game "Assault on Iran", players can test their skills as a Special Forces soldier assigned to put a halt to Iran’s nuclear-weapons program, according to the New York Post.
But the idea that Amir Mirz Hekmati's (a 28-year old former Marine who was born in the United States and raised in Michigan, and who was arrested in August while visiting family in Iran) video-game work should somehow be tied to a secret espionage mission seems doubtful.

Remote Viewing is a talent where some individuals get information from events and places that are far away in both distance and time.
Remote viewers predict huge impacts by mid-2013 from what appear to be large meteors leading to tsunamis and possible volcanism, according to Viewzone.

Ecumenism is unfortunately often about watering down the Faith.
But sometimes people of different faiths accomplish great good.
One example of true ecumenism was the action of the Four Chaplains of the USS Dorchester on January 22, 1943.
A Catholic Priest, two Protestant Ministers, and a Jewish Rabbi, gave up their life jackets so other men could live, and died together, arms linked, praising God to the end.

An assassination attempt against Pope Benedict XVI may be carried out before November 2012, according to RIA Novosti.
The previous Pope, John Paul II, survived a 1981 assassination attempt, although he was shot and gravely wounded by his attacker, Turkish national Mehmet Ali Agca.
Stagnation has become a way of life in Europe.

The Church in Turkey which was the scene of the 7th Ecumenical Council, the last recognized as such by both east and west, was closed to the public for several days of construction work in October last year.
When it reopened in early November, the Hagia Sophia was reopened for service as a mosque, according to Sassy Wire, and The New York Times.
As the imam intoned the prayer and the worshipers faced Mecca, some noted 7th century frescoes of Jesus, Mary, and John the Baptist.
Byzantine mosaics relate the Church's history as the venue of the seventh Ecumenical Council of Christendom.
When Hagia Sophia was reopened for service as a mosque, some Turks thought it was not a good place for a mosque.
Nilgun Tuna for example said: "It should have remained a museum. We should protect our historical heritage, and that includes the Christian heritage".
But one young man from Istanbul said he was in favor of the conversion saying, "and high time too. Next, I want to see it happen in the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul".
Outside the Iznik mosque, Fahri Ugur, a taxi driver, shrugged and ordered another tea from the corner store.
He said: "We had just begun to make a few pennies from tourism. Now we can forget that again".

In a bid to curb the number of illegal immigrants that enter the country, Greece has begun construction on a 6 mile-long, 13 foot-tall barbed-wire-topped fence along its border with Turkey, according to Business Insider.
The fence - to be completed in September in the Evros region on the Greek-Turkish border - will be equipped with a network of night-vision cameras providing live feed to a new command center.
Border control is hard work and 55.000 migrants were arrested in the area last year.

In his book, "The Last Exorcist – My Fight Against Satan", Father Amorth, the exorcist for the diocese of Rome claims the mere presence of the pontiff cures men of their demonic afflictions, according to The Telegraph.
Father Amorth gives a bizarre account of how he and two assistants brought a pair of "possessed" Italian men to one of the Pope's weekly audiences in St Peter's Square in May 2009.
Father Amorth said his two female assistants escorted the two men into St Peter's Square as the Pope was driven between crowds of faithful in the white Popemobile jeep.
The women managed to obtain seats for the two men in an area of seating normally reserved for the disabled.
As the Pope approached them, the men, identified only as Marco and Giovanni, began to act strangely, Father Amorth wrote.
He described how they trembled and how their teeth chattered.
When one of the assistants asked Giovanni to control himself, he said "I am not Giovanni" in a voice that was not his own, Father Amorth claimed.
As soon as the Pope stepped down from the Popemobile the two men flung themselves to the floor.
"They banged their heads on the ground. The Swiss Guards watched them but did nothing", Father Amorth wrote.
Giovanni and Marco started to wail at the same time, they were lying on the floor, howling.
They were trembling, slobbering, working themselves into a frenzy.
Father Amorth continued: "The Pope watched from a distance. He raised an arm and blessed the four of them. For the possessed it was like a furious jolt - a blow to their whole bodies - to the extent that they were thrown three meters backwards".

U.S. President Barack Obama signed an executive order on Monday imposing new, stricter sanctions on Iran and its central bank, saying a broader asset freeze was necessary because Iranian banks were concealing transactions, according to Reuters.
Obama said in a letter to Congress: "I have determined that additional sanctions are warranted, particularly in light of the deceptive practices of the Central Bank of Iran and other Iranian banks to conceal transactions of sanctioned parties, the deficiencies in Iran's anti-money laundering regime and the weaknesses in its implementation, and the continuing and unacceptable risk posed to the international financial system by Iran's activities".
The executive order, described as a further step in the U.S. effort to isolate Iran, prevents any assets deemed to be in U.S. control - including foreign branches of American banks - from being transferred, paid, exported, or withdrawn.
After all, Barack Obama got the Nobel peace prize a few years ago, and that is why he tries so hard to achieve a peaceful reconciliation with Iran.
Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said of the Jewish people the opportunity must not be lost to remove "this corrupting material", according to WND.
The article quotes the Koran: "And slay them wherever ye find them".
The Ayatollah said it is a jurisprudential justification to kill all the Jews and annihilate Israel.
This evil rhetoric and war-propaganda is indeed very sad.
All who harbor evil thoughts against God's people should pray to Jesus Christ and ask for forgiveness.

Madonna will headline the halftime show today of the 2012 Super Bowl in Indianapolis, according to ABC News.
The pop icon will join other artists such as Michael Jackson, U2, Aerosmith, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, and The Who, in playing what is called the biggest annual sporting event in the world.
With Madonna performing, the show will certainly be spectacular.
New Bible translations accomodate to the religious prejudices of Muslims, according to Caryl Productions.
A literary bias has unfortunately crept into modern Bible translations.
It is especially popular to remove of any references to God as "Father", to Jesus as the "Son" or "the Son of God".
The Gospel of Matthew 28:19 is for example changed from: "baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit"
"cleanse them by water in the name of Allah, his Messiah and his Holy Spirit".
This heretical movement is based on deception.
When you replace the Father or the Lord in the Bible, with something else, then you are practizing devil worship.

18-year-old Jyoti Amge, who at 2 feet 6 inches is the world’s shortest woman, has moved to the U.S. and is running for Congress.
Jyoti Amge has moved to Massachusetts and is running for Barney Frank’s seat in the House of Representatives, according to Weekly World News.
But Barney Frank was quick to dismiss her as a viable candidate for his Congressional seat, saying: "Congress is not a freak show".

Politicians in Pennsylvania have made a bold proclamation.
Last week, the state’s House of Representatives unanimously passed a resolution (H.R. 535) declaring 2012 the "Year of the Bible", according to The Blaze.
The declaration partly reads: "Knowledge of and faith in God through Holy Scripture can strengthen us as a nation and a people".
Patrick Elliot, a staff attorney for the Freedom From Religion Foundation, reacted and said that House leadership violates and intentionally interfers with the rights of conscience of their constituents in violation of the U.S. Constitution.
But I think it is admirable, courageous, and great, that the politicians in Pennsylvania unanimously stand up for God and the Holy Bible.
It makes sense and is appropriate this year to have the "Year of the Bible".
We should not let the atheists force their religion upon us.
Hopefully, more states and nations will soon restore God’s rightful place, and give Christ the glory He is due, according to Holy Scripture.

They say Detroit has become a very scary place.
100 bus drivers in Detroit recently refused to drive their routes out of fear of being attacked on the streets.
The head of the bus drivers union, Henry Gaffney, said that the drivers were literally "scared for their lives".
When people feel as though they have lost everything, they get desperate.
And desperate people do desperate things.

At least 73 people have been killed in clashes between rival fans following a football match in the Egyptian city of Port Said.
Wednesday's violence broke out at the end of the match, which, unusually, Port Said side Masry won 3-1.
Pastor Neftali Leiva, a father of five daughters, was gunned down on his way to a regional meeting of Church leaders in a violent border area near Mexico, according to Worthy Christian News.
The shooting was witnessed by another Pastor.
The witnessing Pastor was quoted as saying that an unknown assailant walked up to the victim without a word and shot him point blank several times.
When the shooter saw the witness a short way down the street, he reportedly also fired three times in his direction.
Christians said that the murdered Pastor had been on leave for nearly a year because he had been severely injured when hit by a car.
The Church leaders meeting was to mark "his return to full-time ministry", Christians said.
Mexico registered more cases of all types of swine flu in January than in all of 2011, federal health officials said Tuesday, according to Bay News 9.
Health Secretary Salomon Chertorivski Woldenberg explained the dramatic jump in cases in January: "Last year, H1N1 barely circulated in the country or in the world".
Chertorivski said there are plenty of doses of antiviral drugs in the country, but pharmacies initially were understocked after the low incidence of last year.
