News You Can Use

Postby mes5464 » Mon Aug 12, 2013 10:25 am

It has been suggested that I start a thread to contain my new posts. I don't really like doing it that way but I have decided to do it out of respect for my fellow forum members.

Here we go.

Suggestion.
I have been criticized on other forums for posting useful information that is difficult for researchers
to access. Example putting climate change in the same posting topic with pedophilia.
Or putting material dealing with voter fraud ....etc
So I have tried to contain the subject matter so if people with an interest in global warming
go to heatisonline that is what they will find,kibbish?

President Uchtdorf, speaking in the Priesthood session of the October 2009 General Conference,( that is, to us in our day), reminded us that "For members of the Church, education is not merely a good idea—it’s a commandment. We are to learn "of things both in heaven and in the earth, and under the earth; things which have been, things which are, things which must shortly come to pass; things which are at home, things which are abroad;" The remainder of that Verse 79, which was referenced in the published version President Uchtdorf's address, reads "The wars and the perplexities of the nations, and the judgments which are on the land; and a knowledge also of countries and of kingdoms–" A knowledge about these things is essential to understanding the threats that prophets have warned will afflict us in our time.

I take that to mean that we are commanded to pay attention to what has been, is, and will be going on in the world.

Probably a good idea but this is way more effort than I want to put into this. I just want to share news that I think is relevant and that people should know.

3 years ago this month President Packer advised us that "We live in a time of war, that spiritual war that will never end. Moroni warned us that the secret combinations begun by Gadianton ‘are had among all people." 25 years ago President Bensons warned us that " A secret combination that seeks to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations and countries is increasing its evil influence and control over America and the entire world." This should not be news to any of us here, but I think it helps to be aware of this as we try to analyze the recent and latest news. All the "news" we usually read or hear is generally a mix of truth, half-truths, misinformation, and disinformation. Filtering out the truth begins with finding reliable sources, and I venture to say that the above statements come from sources about as reliable as they get.

Obama to Sign UN Arms Treaty This Month While Congress is in Recess
President Obama will move forward with adding his signature to the UN Arms Treaty before the end of this month according to Press Secretary Jay Carney.

It is feared and predicted by many gun rights groups and advocates that the treaty, if ratified, could open up the US gun market to international regulation.

The President has the power to negotiate and make treaties, but 2/3 of the Senate must concur/ratify any treaty for it to have the force of law. So let's see what actually happens.

Sad part is, that it seems that they make and break whatever law(s) they feel like. It also appears that they can get away with it too.

Family Raided By SWAT Team For Their Weeds

Postby mes5464 » Wed Aug 14, 2013 7:49 am

Family Raided By SWAT Team For Their Weeds
Arlington, Texas — A family with a passion for gardening and conscious living was raided by the Arlington SWAT team early Friday morning. All 8 adults present in the house were initially handcuffed at the gunpoint of heavily armed SWAT officers, including the mother of a 22 month old and a two week old baby who was separated from her children during the raid. I had a chance to interview Quinn who gave me his first hand account of the raid and the background behind it all.
After several hours and many requests from the community members, the City Police Officers finally produced two warrants. The first was a Search Warrant for a suspected marijuana growth and distribution operation purportedly being concealed on the premises. There was also an Inspection & Abatement Warrant for code compliance violations such as tall grass and storage in the yard, an issue that the City of Arlington and The Garden of Eden have been disputing since February of this year. The marijuana warrant was issued based on an unsubstantiated claim by an Arlington City Police Officer of possession of marijuana by one of the community members for which there is no police record. Garden of Eden community members also say they have a series of documents showing that their dispute with the City of Arlington over the code compliance violations had already been addressed and settled.

How much do you want to bet they never had the warrants before the raid, and then got warrants that matched what they found.

Agreed, but here is how I think this will play out.

They will do the investigation and admit that they are funding abortions with tax dollars.
Then there will be a small debate about it, and then either nothing will happen or a law will be passed to permit them to use tax funds for abortions.
That is my prediction.

Miss Teen USA Reveals Cyberstalking and Extortion Plot

Miss Teen USA Reveals Cyberstalking and Extortion Plot
Cassidy Wolf should be on top of the world after being crowned Miss Teen USA Saturday in the Bahamas. But the 19-year-old is using her newfound fame to reveal a very dark private struggle.

Four months ago, Wolf, a California native, was notified that someone had tried to log into her Facebook account from a different state. Shortly after, she received an anonymous email from someone claiming to have hacked into the webcam on the computer in her bedroom. The stalker tried to extort the teen saying the photos would not be made public in return.

"I wasn't aware that somebody was watching me [on my webcam]," Wolf, who was targeted before she'd won her national title, told Today.com. "The light [on the camera] didn't even go on, so I had no idea."

So, don't have a webcam! But, if you must have one put a piece of electrical tape over it and take it off when you plan to use it.

The Surprising Benefit of Having Siblings

Postby mes5464 » Wed Aug 14, 2013 8:10 am

The Surprising Benefit of Having Siblings
The more siblings you have, the better you chance of a long-lasting marriage. With each sibling (up to about seven), your probability of getting divorced is reduced by 2 percent, according to research published Tuesday by the American Sociological Association. “This study suggests one positive benefit of having siblings,” Donna Bobbitt-Zeher, co-author of the study and assistant professor of sociology at Ohio State University, told Yahoo! Shine. “This is significant because it shows a long-term consequence of growing up with siblings.”

Need Nail Polish Remover? Bring Your ID
The next time you need to swing by the drugstore to pick up some supplies for your at-home manicure, you might want to make sure you have a valid driver's license with you.
It turns out acetone, a key ingredient found in many formulas of nail polish remover, is also being used illegally to make crystal meth. And since some amateur chemists have been scooping up the product in bulk to create the psychoactive drug, the megachain drugstore CVS is taking action to prevent acetone from getting into the wrong hands.

Just what we need. CVS to be our mother, alone with Fed, State, Local governments. But not Mom. She's no longer qualified to be mom.

California Poised to Pass Bill Requiring License and Backgro

California Poised to Pass Bill Requiring License and Background Checks for Ammo Purchases
As if ammo isn’t hard enough to get in recent days, California is seeking to make it even harder to acquire.

Senate Bill 53, first introduced in December has passed the California State Senate.

The bill will require anyone wanting to purchase gun ammunition to obtain a license from the state, which is good for only 1 year and required a background check as well as a mental health check to acquire.

The bill would also require all ammunition dealers to acquire a license from the state as well as track and report all ammo sales at their location.

The bill would completely eliminate online and mail order sales of ammunition.

This already sounds like the UN Small Arms Treaty. When will people wake up to the fact that states can't violate the Constitution either.

"So the challenge is ahead of us, for all of us, and I know that the United States has a great commitment under President Obama to take our own initiatives, not even to wait for congressional action, but to move administratively in order to do our part. I know we can continue to work with Brazil on this issue of climate, and we look forward to doing so."

So, in a previous report we learn that Obama is going to sign the UN Small Arms Treaty with congressional approval and now he plans to move ahead with "climate change" without a law. We have a criminal in the White House and it is time we impeach him and send him and his cabinet to jail.

AZ School District: Parents Submit Contract Lock Up Guns

Postby mes5464 » Wed Aug 14, 2013 10:32 am

Arizona school district wants parents to submit to contract agreeing to lock up guns
A school district in a generally rural section of northwest Tucson, Arizona is asking the parents of high school students and junior high school students to pledge never to use guns or violence to resolve problems.

The “Student/Parent/Principal Contract for Eliminating Guns and Weapons from School 2013 — 2014″ was part of the Flowing Wells Unified School District’s registration packet for the upcoming school year, reports the Arizona Daily Independent.

Second Amendment advocates see the terms of the contract — particularly the ones set out for parents — as a patronizing attempt to govern behavior in private homes.

Dash Cam Footage Captures Cops’ Panic Following Illegal Deta

Dash Cam Footage Captures Cops’ Panic Following Illegal Detainment
Upon returning to their vehicle, the officers forget to turn off their recording devices.

The subsequent anxious conversation and reaction to discovering an active recording speaks volumes to the officers’ misconduct.

“He’s already going to get lawyers,” one officer, presumably Deputy Brian Beck says, “We gotta go… This…this guy’s the real deal. This guy is the one that posted everything last year on his site.”

Beck next says, “Here’s the problem, they [the rodeo] didn’t trespass him when we were there… they asked him to leave.”

“Well, even so, we’re going off what we were told,” Belnap says attempting to rationalize their unlawful mistake. “I wasn’t there so…”

“I didn’t want to stop the man,” Beck continues, adding “God we’re gonna get sued…”

“Perhaps you’re right,” Belnap says.

“We’re gonna be in a world of hurt here,” says Beck. “It’s all because of that rodeo board…. you know that, right?”

“[Insert Obrien's favorite curse word here] I was still recording!” Beck announces when he finally realizes the dash cam is still on.

Marine Corps Colonel: Homeland Security Building “Domestic A

Postby mes5464 » Thu Aug 15, 2013 6:29 am

Marine Corps Colonel: Homeland Security Building “Domestic Army”
The comments by the Colonel, whose identity remains unknown, were made during public testimony at a Concord City Council meeting on Tuesday. The meeting concerned a decision on whether to accept a $260,000 Homeland Security grant on behalf of the Central New Hampshire Special Operations Unit to purchase a BearCat armored vehicle.

The purchase of the vehicle has been surrounded by controversy after the city’s Police Chief wrote in an application filing to the DHS that the vehicle was needed to deal with the “threat” posed by libertarians, sovereign citizen adherents, and Occupy activists in the region.

Referencing signs in the crowd which read “More Mayberry, Less Fallujah,” the Colonel spoke of how he didn’t even have armored vehicles when he was stationed in Fallujah.

The Colonel’s role as a Ministry of Defense coordinator was to command, train and equip the Iraqi Army, noting that he helped do everything he could “to make it as strong as possible,” but that “Homeland Security would kick their butts in a week.”

Stressing that it was unlawful and unconstitutional to use US troops on American soil, the Colonel warned, “What’s happening here is we’re building a domestic military,” adding that police are now “wearing the exact same combat gear that we had in Iraq, only it was a different color.”

The Colonel warned that the DHS was following military tactics by, “pre-staging gear and equipment” in order to build a “domestic army” while shrinking the US military “because the government is afraid of its own citizens.”

The Colonel slammed the idea of law enforcement purchasing militarized vehicles for domestic security, noting, “The last time more than ten terrorists were in one place at the same time was September 11th and all these vehicles in the world wouldn’t have prevented it nor would it have helped anybody.”

“I don’t know where we’re going to use this many vehicles or this many troops,” he continued, “Concord is just one cog in the wheel – we’re building an army over here and I can’t believe that people aren’t seeing it – is everybody blind?”

Once an countries military looses it morality, it becomes a danger to that country and it looses God's blessing.
So, it will ultimately fail to do what it is supposed to do, which is to protect the country.
George Washington plead with the Revolutionary Army to be moral, and he attributed their success to God's blessing because the army kept the Lord's commandments.
