VERSE OF THE DAY: (King James Version)
John 10:1 “I tell you the truth, the man who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber.

KJV vs NIV [WHAT DOES YOUR BIBLE LEAVE OUT – MINE LEAVES OUT NOTHING]:
Mattthew 6:27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
Matthew 6:27 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
“A north St. Louis County man says he can’t believe what he found in his mailbox — a letter from his subdivision committee telling him he had to take down his yard sign. The simple green sign has a single word written in white…”Jesus”. “What is this? What kind of country are we living in?,” Michael Mayfield asks incredulously. Mayfield lives in unincorporated Florissant, in a subdivision called Weatherby Place off Shackleford. He says as a Christian, he proudly placed the familiar green-and-white sign in his yard as a declaration of his faith. “And they told me I had to remove it,” Mayfield tells KMOX News. “I mean it just shocked me to no end to even read a letter like this. It spelled out ‘Jesus’, and that really captured my attention that they would go as far as to spell out the name ‘Jesus’.” The report below continues to show you attacks on the Lord’s children.
“Thousands of Christians have been forced to flee their homes in Western Ethiopia after Muslim extremists set fire to roughly 50 churches and dozens of Christian homes. At least one Christian has been killed, many more have been injured and anywhere from 3,000 to 10,000 have been displaced in the attacks that began March 2 after a Christian in the community of Asendabo was accused of desecrating the Koran. The violence escalated to the point that federal police forces sent to the area two weeks ago were initially overwhelmed by the mobs. Government spokesman Shimelis Kemal told Voice of America police reinforcements had since restored order and 130 suspects had been arrested and charged with instigating religious hatred and violence.”
“Britain, France and Germany want the United Nations and the European Union to propose the outlines of a final settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that would lead to the establishment of a Palestinian state, UN diplomats said. The three European countries, all members of the UN Security Council, are pressing for Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the European Union to propose a settlement text at a meeting in mid-April of the Quartet of Mideast mediators, the diplomats said, speaking on condition of anonymity because talks are taking place in private.” “The quartet includes the UN, EU, U.S. and Russia. The aim is to get a basis for direct Israeli-Palestinian talks to resume. Putting the job in the hands of the EU and the UN would sideline the United States, Israel’s closest ally which has tried unsuccessfully for months to get face-to-face negotiations going, as well as Russia, an ally of the Palestinians.”
“On the streets outside, anarchists battled police. Some officers in Oxford Street were attacked with lightbulbs filled with ammonia, a sinister new weapon that can be assembled by following simple instructions on the internet. Other officers were hit with paint and flying bottles. By the end of the day 75 protesters had been arrested and 28 people injured. Five police officers were also hurt and one was one taken to hospital. Scotland Yard commander Bob Broadhurst said of the rioters: ‘I wouldn’t call them protesters. They are engaging in criminal activities for their own ends. We’ll never have enough officers to protect every building in Central London.’ Several splinter groups brought chaos and violence to what was the largest ¬public protest since the 2003 anti-Iraq war rally. In stark contrast, the daytime demonstration was hailed a ‘fantastic success’ by trade unions as people from across the UK marched through central London. Organisers estimated between 400,000 and 500,000 teachers, nurses, firefighters, council and NHS workers, other public sector employees, students, pensioners and campaign groups converged on the capital.”
“There will be no peace agreement before all Palestinian prisoners in Israel’s custody are released, President Mahmoud Abbas said Saturday. During a reception in Ramallah for the coordinator of the popular committee against the wall and settlements in Bil’in, Abdullah Abu Rahma, recently freed from Israeli jail, Abbas asserted the Palestinian Authority would not spare any effort to release all Palestinian prisoners. The official PA news agency Wafa quoted Abbas saying he gives special attention to the prisoners’ cause as “a pivotal issue” which tops priorities of the PA leadership. The president also expressed appreciation of the great role the popular committees play in resisting the wall and settlement expansion through non-violent protests. Abu Rahma told Abbas that Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails supported Abbas’ initiative to end rivalry and reach unity between the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. “National reconciliation is necessary to counter the dire conditions the Palestinian cause is facing,” Abu Rahma said on behalf of prisoners. He expressed his support for Abbas’ policies to recruit international support for popular resistance and for recognition of statehood on the 1967 border with Jerusalem as its capital.”
“Israel will stop dealing with the Palestinian Authority if it brings Hamas into the government, a senior government official said Saturday night, a few hours after PA President Mahmoud Abbas met in Ramallah with a senior Hamas delegation for conciliation talks. “Abbas has to choose whether he wants peace with Israel, or peace with Hamas,” the official said. “He can’t have both. If he chooses peace with Hamas it will bury the peace process.” “Asked whether this meant that Israel wanted to see a permanent split between the West Bank controlled by Fatah, and Gaza controlled by Hamas, the official said Israel wanted to see the PA under Abbas once again take control of Gaza. Israel’s objection to Hamas inside the PA government would evaporate, the official added, if the organization accepted the Quartet’s three conditions for acceptance: forswearing violence, recognizing Israel, and accepting previous Israel-Palestinian agreements.”
Another war between Israel and Gaza is looming. “It is only a question of time, I’m sorry to say, until we clash with Hamas again and we teach them once again the rules of engagement,” Israel’s Home Front Minister Matan Vilnai said this week. “Our wisdom is to push it off as long as possible — I have no question it’s going to happen.” After the first bomb in seven years at a bus station in Jerusalem, which killed a British tourist and injured 39 others, Israelis are wondering whether this is the beginning of a new intifada.”

In CNN Special, Soledad O’Brien Slants Towards Muslims, Omits Woman’s Connection to Mosque
CNN’s Soledad O’Brien’s Sunday documentary about the controversial mosque in Murfreesboro, Tennessee predictably leaned towards the local Muslims who want it built. O’Brien brushed aside an opponent’s concerns over Sharia law in the U.S.: “In New York City, we have a big Muslim community. There is no Sharia law [there].” She also omitted how a featured Muslim woman is related to one of the mosque’s planners. Forty-five minutes into her hour-long documentary, which aired at 8 pm Eastern, the journalist noted the fall 2010 trial which asked for an injunction to halt the construction of the mosque, but instead of reporting that the trial focused on concerns that the approval of the mosque “did not provide adequate public comment and that its members will impose Sharia Law on Murfreesboro residents,” as a local newspaper reported, O’Brien spun this by playing up how, apparently, “in a small courtroom in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, Islam was on trial.”
Ted Koppel Longs for the Old Media and an ‘Objective Accounting’ of ‘What’s Really Important’
Former Nightline host Ted Koppel appeared on Sunday’s Reliable Sources and wistfully called for a return to “more serious objectivity” and the need for reporters who can tell audiences “what’s really important in the world.” This is the same Ted Koppel who once stopped just shy of calling Rush Limbaugh “hateful,” who in a commentary said of enhanced interrogation techniques, “You know, it’s almost the moral equivalent of saying that rape is an enhanced seduction technique.”
NIA Responds to Harvard Economics Professor About Inflation
Harvard economics professor Gregory Mankiw wrote an article that was published in the NY Times yesterday entitled, “It’s 2026, and the Debt Is Due”. In this article, Mankiw gave a hypothetical Presidential address the President of the U.S. might make in the year 2026 after a failed bond auction. Mankiw’s hypothetical Presidential address takes place in a scenario where in the year 2026, the U.S. Treasury “tried to auction its most recent issue of government bonds” but “almost no one was buying.” According to Mankiw’s hypothetical speech, during this 2026 crisis the President will admit, “The private market will lend us no more.”
Unfortunately, Professor Mankiw fails to understand that the U.S. has zero chance of surviving until the year 2026. What Mankiw predicts will happen 15 years from now is already happening today right under his nose, but somehow he fails to realize it.
The public today has already stopped buying U.S. treasuries. The Pimco Total Return Fund, which was the largest private holder of U.S. government bonds, has just reduced their holdings down to zero. The private sector was buying 30% of U.S. treasuries, but today is no longer buying at all. The Federal Reserve is currently buying 70% of U.S. treasuries. If it wasn’t for the Federal Reserve buying U.S. treasuries, we would already be experiencing failed bond auctions today….

Rush Limbaugh recently 1 castigated our putative president for announcing that his regime would not enforce the Defense of Marriage Act. Rush said:
…He’s ordering his Justice Department not to defend a federal law. Nobody has said the law is unconstitutional other than Obama and Holder, and they don’t have the power to do that … For a president to ignore a federal law … for him to act as legislature and court …is hugely troubling …
