[Daily Reading]

Lamentations 1:1-2 How deserted lies the city, once so full of people! How like a widow is she, who once was great among the nations! She who was queen among the provinces has now become a slave. Bitterly she weeps at night, tears are upon her cheeks. Among all her lovers there is none to comfort her. All her friends have betrayed her; they have become her enemies.





Matthew 25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Matthew 25:13 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.



The UN and One World Worship–By Fay Voshell
Bolivia’s president Morales, having achieved the establishment of pantheism as his country’s official religion, has taken his religious agenda to the UN, which has acceded to his wishes by establishing April 22 as Mother Earth Day, thus establishing the worship of the goddess Pachamama (known as Gaia in other circles)…

Thomas Paine: Oracle of the American Revolution–By Chris Pinto
While some will tell us that Paine was a deist and “critic” of Christianity, the reality is that he was an antichrist by biblical definition. Paine did not merely disagree with Christianity, but specifically made it his business to denounce it. He wrote: …

One in four born-again Christians hold universalist thoughts when it comes to salvation, according to a new Barna analysis of trend data.

Twenty-five percent of born-again Christians said all people are eventually saved or accepted by God. A similar proportion, 26 percent, said a person’s religion does not matter because all faiths teach the same lessons.

And an even higher proportion, 40 percent, of born-again Christians said they believe Christians and Muslims worship the same God….

Decoding Doomsday, Part 2
As the world moves closer to 2012, many speculate that the end of the world could be near. What does that mean? And is there any truth that end-times events could climax in 2012 or in the next few years? S. Douglas Woodward looks to the Bible, the Mayan calendar, and other ancient artifacts to give his thoughts on end-time biblical events.


Importing Disaster: Demographic Changes Mean Democrat Future
At a gathering some years ago, I had a political conversation with a man who had recently arrived here from Denmark. He was advocating his home country’s socialist system, which, of course, led to profound disagreement. He was good natured and cordial, however, so the debate ended on a polite note. Yet it also ended on an ironic one: When asked if he wanted to return home, his answer was no. This is a common phenomenon. We see it, for instance, in liberal northerners who move to…..

U.S. Officials Suspected Al-Jazeera Ties to Al-Qaeda

Al-Jazeera is spinning the newly released “Guantanamo files,” saying they show that dozens of enemy combatants detained at the U.S. facility at Guantanamo Bay were innocent. But that’s not what the previously secret documents say about one high-profile detainee, Sami al-Hajj, an Al-Jazeera journalist released from Guantanamo after legal intervention by his Soros-funded lawyer and protests from human rights and press freedom groups. The controversial allegations against this former…….

Rebuttal: Some Obama Birth Records Made Public for Years
In an article published on various websites, Mark Niesse of the Associated Press, has made various claims regarding Barack Hussein Obama’s birth records. As always with such stories, Niesse has carefully avoided the deeper issues and the real issues regarding Obama’s eligibility to the office of president. First of all, Niesse claims that…..

The Wall Street Journal editorial page’s Steve Moore critiques the president’s speeches attacking Republican budget plans.And it’s a lot closer than you may think.According to the latest IMF official forecasts, China’s economy will surpass that of America in real terms in 2016 — just five years from now.Put that in your calendar.It provides a painful context for the budget wrangling taking place in Washington, D.C., right now. It raises enormous questions about what the international security system is going to look like in just a handful of years. And it casts a deepening cloud over both the U.S. dollar and the giant Treasury market, which have been propped up for decades by their privileged status as the liabilities of the world’s hegemonic power.According to the IMF forecast, whomever is elected U.S. president next year — Obama? Mitt Romney? Donald Trump? — will be the last to preside over the world’s largest economy.” …

BEIJING, April 23 (Xinhua) — China should reduce its excessive foreign exchange reserves and further diversify its holdings, Tang Shuangning, chairman of China Everbright Group, said on Saturday.The amount of foreign exchange reserves should be restricted to between 800 billion to 1.3 trillion U.S. dollars, Tang told a forum in Beijing, saying that the current reserve amount is too high. China’s foreign exchange reserves increased by 197.4 billion U.S. dollars in the first three months of this year to 3.04 trillion U.S. dollars by the end of March. Tang’s remarks echoed the stance of Zhou Xiaochuan, governor of China’s central bank, who said on Monday that China’s foreign exchange reserves “exceed our reasonable requirement” and that the government should upgrade and diversify its foreign exchange management using the excessive reserves. Meanwhile, Xia Bin, a member of the monetary policy committee of the central bank, said on Tuesday that 1 trillion U.S. dollars would be sufficient. He added that China should invest its foreign exchange reserves more strategically, using them to acquire resources and technology needed for the real economy.” …


National Insecurity — Part 1: A Culture of Federal Corruption and Collusion

Here’s part 2


The Braggadocio of the International Monetary Fund
Judi McLeod
Not only is the IMF presenting the end of the ‘Age of America’ as a fait accompli, so is the news.

The narrative for the end of the ‘Age of America’ story was long ago picked up and scripted by two of society’s greediest and most evil of men: One Worlders George Soros and Maurice Strong.

But the narrative they spin is one that can be—and should be—interrupted.

“Boston (Marketwatch)—The International Monetary Fund has just dropped a bombshell, and nobody noticed.

“For the first time, the international organization has set a date for the moment when the ‘Age of America’ will end and the U.S. economy will be overtaken by that of China.

“And it’s a lot closer than you may think.

“According to the latest IMF official forecasts, China’s economy will surpass that of America in real terms in 2016—just five years from now.

“Put that in your calendar.” …

Donald Trump: Obama Too Dumb for Ivies
Katsumi Kasahara
Donald Trump is trying out a new, racist dog whistle about President Obama: Saying he was a “terrible” student and wondering how he got into Columbia and Harvard. “I heard he was a terrible student, terrible. How does a bad student go to Columbia and then to Harvard?” Trump asks the Associated Press. “I have friends who have smart sons with great marks, great boards, great everything and they can’t get into Harvard. We don’t know a thing about this guy. There are a lot of questions that are unanswered about our president.” Obama graduated magna cum laude in 1991 from Harvard Law School, where he was president of the Harvard Law Review….

A Beginner’s Herb Garden
by Mark Sisson
Gardening is a hot topic this week on MDA. Two days ago, Mark gave you the whys – gardening can be therapeutic, it can improve health markers, it can be a great way for people to move frequently at a slow pace, and the list goes on. It’s also a great way to save money on organic produce, to maintain a constant (and self-replicating) supply of edible green things, and to get out into the sun. Let’s just say that gardening is good for you on multiple levels, and if you’ve got the space and the time, you should probably give it a shot….

Obama Won’t Produce Birth Certificate Because It Would Reveal TRUE Identity of His Father: Hawaii Senator’s Extraordinary Claim
A member of the Hawaii State Senate said today he believes Barack Obama is not releasing his long-form birth certificate because he may want to hide the identity or citizenship of his father.

In an extraordinary outburst, Republican Sam Slom said the ‘real issue’ behind the reluctance of the President, who says he was born in Hawaii, to release full details from his birth certificate was unlikely to be because he wanted to hide his place of birth.

‘My particular point of view… is that [Obama] probably was born [in Hawaii] and that the real issue is not the birth certificate, but what’s on the birth certificate,’ Slom said in an interview on New York’s WABC 770 AM radio station….

Cryptographic Protocols – How To Protect Your Wireless Network
by Trace Mayer
We have all done it. If you own a laptop then you have probably done it more than once. We have all been without the Internet for a little while and then decided to use the wireless network unprotected with cryptographic protocols from our neighbor, a business, or a stranger down the street to do a little web surfing.

But just because you have done it does not necessarily mean that you want others doing it to you. After all, some of those restaurants offered the Wifi access for free to entice you to be their patron while your neighbor may just be being nice. But you may not trust others as much as you trust yourself.

For whatever reason you want to keep all strangers out of your network, just like you want them out of your financial business and may use a hawala system, and would help you to avoid private investigators. This is how to keep your network secure from any prying eyes that may be around your neighborhood….

Britain’s Royal Wedding Fiasco and its “Dirty little Secret” in Bahrain
by Finian Cunningham

In case you haven’t noticed, the world is on the verge of a horrific global food crisis.

At some point, this crisis will affect you and your family. It may not be today, and it may not be tomorrow, but it is going to happen. Crazy weather and horrifying natural disasters have played havoc with agricultural production in many areas of the globe over the past couple of years.

Meanwhile, the price of oil has begun to skyrocket. The entire global economy is predicated on the ability to use massive amounts of inexpensive oil to cheaply produce food and other goods and transport them over vast distances. Without cheap oil the whole game changes.

Topsoil is being depleted at a staggering rate and key aquifers all over the world are being drained at an alarming pace. Global food prices are already at an all-time high and they continue to move up aggressively. So what is going to happen to our world when hundreds of millions more people cannot afford to feed themselves? …
