Daily Headlines

There are so many interesting stories today, I'll have to limit things to headlines and a brief intro:

First up, there are a couple of stories on the coming famine from Foreign Policy Magazine:

The New Geopolitics of food

Welcome to the new food economics of 2011: Prices are climbing, but the impact is not at all being felt equally. But for the planet's poorest 2 billion people, who spend 50 to 70 percent of their income on food, these soaring prices may mean going from two meals a day to one. Those who are barely hanging on to the lower rungs of the global economic ladder risk losing their grip entirely. This can contribute -- and it has -- to revolutions and upheaval.

More Than 1 Billion People Are Hungry in the World

For many in the West, poverty is almost synonymous with hunger. Indeed, the announcement by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization in 2009 that more than 1 billion people are suffering from hunger grabbed headlines in a way that any number of World Bank estimates of how many poor people live on less than a dollar a day never did.

Cleric: Jihad coming to 'heart of America'

Warning there are motivated jihadists "in the heart of America," Choudary said al-Qaida will likely carry out revenge operations with "meticulous accuracy" and "devastating affect" comparable to that of the 9/11 attacks.

Al-Qaida warns U.S. of 'big revenge' over Osama death

The leader of the group that represents al-Qaida ideology in the Gaza Strip warned in an interview today of "big revenge" against the U.S. and Israel for the killing of Osama bin Laden.
Speaking from the Gaza Strip, Abu Saqer of Jihadiya Salafiya told WND that al-Qaida groups worldwide "made a connection" to initiate what he called "big revenge."

Israel fears bin Laden revenge attacks

High alert in Israel: Security officials are preparing for the possibility that radical Islamists will attempt to strike American targets and interests in Israel to avenge the killing of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

World braces itself for revenge attacks

The American intelligence agency, the CIA, warned retaliation was almost certain. “Although bin Laden is dead, al Qaeda is not,” said CIA director Leon Panetta. “The terrorists almost certainly will attempt to avenge him, and we must remain vigilant.”

Smaller Earthquakes Could Mean A Large One Is Coming

In the past week, the El Paso region has had four earthquakes at least 4.2 in scale. Seismologist Aaron Velasco tells KFOX14 the earthquakes could foreshadow a large scale earthquake in El Paso. These earthquakes all happened in a remote area of Chihuahua, Mecico. They were still pretty close to the U.S. border.

Mississippi River to exceed 1927 flood levels

Mississippi River levels will reach an all-time high this month, exceeding even the great flood of 1927, according to a new forecast by the National Weather Service
Still, even corps officials like Simrall were surprised by the new crest prediction.
“It would be more water than we’ve ever had,” he said. “I’ve worked here more than 25 years and I never thought I’d see this.”

Chinese Warships in Australian Ports?

Western defence analysts are also concerned about the potential for a maritime accident triggering war, given China’s increasingly assertive conduct and the absence of the kind of maritime incident protocols that defused incidents between the US and the Soviet Union during the Cold War. Ms. Gillard said neither Mr. Hu nor the Premier, Wen Jiabao, raised any concerns about Australia’s military relationships with the US, or its allies, and nor did she raise concerns about the People’s Liberation Army.

The Ultimate Ally

What is the definition of an American ally? On an ideological level, an ally is a country that shares America's values, reflects its founding spirit, and resonates with its people's beliefs. Tactically, an ally stands with the United States through multiple conflicts and promotes its global vision. From its location at one strategic crossroads, an ally enhances American intelligence and defense capabilities, and provides ports and training for U.S. forces. Its army is formidable and unequivocally loyal to its democratic government.

Few countries fit this description, but Israel is certainly one of them.

Muslim Brotherhood Makes Different Statements in English and in Arabic

Muslim Brotherhood’s statement on their Arabic-language page said nothing critical of him. The website refers to the killing of “Sheikh” Osama bin Laden, using an honorific title, and condemns the attack as an assassination. It demands America stay out of the internal affairs of Arab and Muslim countries, and blames the West for launching a media campaign to demonize Islam.

Above all, the MB’s Arabic-language statement “confirms that the legitimate resistance against foreign occupation, for any country is a legitimate right guaranteed by divine law and international convention,” in reference to America’s presence in Iraq and Afghanistan. By supporting violence against America’s troops in Muslim lands, the MB essentially defends the al-Qaeda campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Palestinians: Jerusalem is already ours

While Israelis from the right and left of the political spectrum argue over the future of Jerusalem, Palestinian leaders say the eastern half of the holy city is already in their hands.

In his weekly radio address last week, Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad announced that his government would soon resume administrative duties in eastern Jerusalem neighborhoods.
Fayyad noted that the PA had already allocated half-a-million dollars to altering the curriculum in Arab schools in Jerusalem, and that it would also bolster health and judicial services.

The move is a direct violation of the Palestinians' signed agreements with Israel, which prohibit Palestinian administrative activity in Jerusalem. It is seen as part of the new Palestinian Authority strategy of unilaterally seizing control of the lands it claims and winning international backing for sovereignty over them.

Of special concern are the changes to the curriculum in Arab schools. The new textbooks that Fayyad's government is bringing in deny the Jews' right to live in Israel and even contain excerpts of the infamous Czarist blood libel The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

Fayyad claimed that with eastern Jerusalem in Palestinians hands, the city would become a symbol of peace and coexistence, but the schoolbook changes in particular show that the Palestinians are only interested in sowing the seeds of hate and continued conflict.

It will be important in the coming months to remember the words above - as the world pretends that creating a "PA State" will be the ultimate "Peace Plan"...We'll know better - we'll know the truth.

I can see there is no let up in prophetically significant news. The last article on the PA asserting administartive control over east Jerusalem was most disturbing.

That breaks a treaty and will add to the mounting pressure on Israel to respond. How much longer before war breaks out? The answer is probably best measured in days or weeks and not months or years.

Gee whiz Scott- And I thought this might be a slow news day! I've been in labor before and usually you get a break between contractions unless you are getting really close to the birth! Thank you again for being so diligent in your service for Christ!-ally

Anonymous said...

Thank you for the time you take in writing all of this information daily. Thank you! There are so many things happening around the world that most people are not aware of. I would not be aware of much of it if it were not for you. Thank you!
I agree with the above post..and I am pretty sure the woman giving birth would be dialated to 10 cm any time now!

Scott said...

WV - I agree - that article struck me as the most ominous. Its almost like "if they say it enough, it will come true", and unfortunately, there seems to be some merit in that...I believe there are a lot of 'agreements' that are leading into sept...We'll have to wait until Sept to find out - but I believe there is more going on that the PA State and new borders....

Ally and Anon - it truly is my pleasure, and I am grateful for your various comments and all you guys add to this board. God Bless and thank you.

"...and I am pretty sure the woman giving birth would be dialated to 10 cm any time now!"

All this modern technology beats me! Is it near, or not yet? What's that in old fashioned finger?


Anonymous said...

Is Obama bin Laden dead for real? I think the war would start anytime now. Do you think the Gog Magog war is the beginning of World War 3 ?

Scott said...

I'd say about 8.5 cm at this point :)
Anon - I believe he is dead - otherwise video's would start coming out making the admin look foolish - if there is any question, IMO, it would be how long has he been dead...

Anonymous said...

Scott-touche! on the how long he has been dead and ei 10 centimeters is maximum dialation and birth is imminent :-) well there could be some pushing time involved but rev. doesnt discuss that. 8.5 sounds about right to me. another weird labor fact guys that just struck me. a point comes when the mother is getting close to dialation of say 7-10. they begin to lose touch with reality, become panicky and scared. i see that starting to occur here on earth. Thank you Jesus for you are our anchor! and though our boat may get tossed, you are the calmer of storms! -ally

Paula said...

"they begin to lose touch with reality, become panicky and scared."

o.O ?

Dylan said...

Well people losing sense of reality would be why people can't see the conspiracy against Israel going on in the middle east right now.

I had an epiphany last nite... Actually, it was my usual monthly epiphany.

I wuz checking [in vain] the last several postings on this site for any new comments or news from Scott and wondering why there hadn't been any activity for 2 days when I suddenly noticed that little word "May" in the upper right sidebar, right above the little word "April" and then it dawned on me; you guys were all in May now!

This usually happens about the 2nd or 3rd day of the new month...

This has been happening to me [I sorry to admit] for about the past 2yrs.

I'm pretty sure it was EI who mentioned that it was 1 of the 1st 3 things that starts to go as you git older ... but I can't remember what the other 2 are either...

I would like to enlist Scott's, or any other volunteer to faithfully, on the 1st of each month, post the following message on the last article of the previous month:

"DrNofog, we are all over here in the new month!"

DrNofog said...

On that note... ..concerning OBL, Obummer & the Timing of it all...

I can't 'remember' where I saw it, but there was some "conspiracy" stuff saying Obummer wuz greatly concerned about touching up & hiding the freezer burns on OBL before he had his final photo op... prolly why they fed him to the fishies so quick.

And the 'timing' may have to do with the heat of that persistent 'birth' problem that wuz sposed to be "fixed" and go away, but strange things were apparently 'overlooked', just a little bit.

What the ... ? Why does Obama have 2 different birth doctors

Funny how it's hard to keep up on all the little "details" when you start down that path!

[And I hope Scott doesn't slap my hand for the repost]
It seems Obummer's 'New & Improved' long form 'Certificate of Live Birth', that he claimed "didn't exist" awhile back but suddenly here it is, is causing more questions and problems than it wuz sposed to cure:

Online 'birth certificate' document 'was changed'

A forensic computer document expert who analyzed the online image of Barack Obama's purported Certificate of Live Birth confirmed there are anomalies and evidence it has been manipulated.

This is now up on YouTube as well.

And Wiki, true to their leftist nature, is covering for our 1st Illegal-Alien-in-Chief by removing the 'Natural-born citizen' info:

'Natural-born citizen' info vanishes off Wikipedia in wake of Obama's release of his long-form birth certificate.

...just like they did for the "Climate-gate" email scandal, editing the 'telling' stuff out of almost 5000 pages.

Nothing surprises us any more!

DrNoFog, don't forget the CT SSN! The truth will come out!

Anonymous said...

Dr No Fog...You rock :-) ally

DrNofog said...

Anon, I'm not registering anything 'upstairs' right now on "CT SSN"... can you give the old guy a refresher?

Thanx Ally. I'll try for paper and/or scissors on the next one.

Scott said...


As far as the birth cert - I believe its somehow a set-up and I'm not sure what the angle is. The "mistakes" (for lack of a better word) are just too obvious, IMO, and had to be by intent...So my question becomes - Why?
Why would they have the appearances of a forgery that most High School students wouldn't have made. So again, why?

I believe it was by intent, but for the life of me, I can't imagine why.

Scott said...

Oh - and yea - we'll give you a "message" on the 1st of every month!

Expected Imminently said...

Hello Scott

As I am mentally and emotionally still on Imperial Yards, Feet and Inches; I Googled it! 8.5 cm =3.346 inches approx 3-4 fingers dilated?

What I want to know is –is this a ‘first time’ birth, or does the birth of Jesus make two?

If it’s ‘first time’ what about ‘efacement’ will that slow the process?
“ First time mothers have longer labors because effacement and dilation are two separate processes; effacement precedes dilation. In subsequent deliveries dilation and effacement occur concurrently, shortening the labor process.”

Also, as 10cm or 5 finger dilation is the moment of birth does that = the 2nd Coming OR is that when Israel repents just after the AoD – middle of the Seven?

Where are we now at 8.5 cm – Active or Transition?
“Contractions will widen the diameter of the cervix. Labor is popularly divided into 2 phases: ACTIVE and LATENT with the TRANSITION phase in between. During the latent phase dilation reaches about 3-4 cm; the cervix widens to about 7 cm in the active phase with most of the hard work i.e. intense labor during the transition phase where full dilation is achieved. Repeat contractions stretch the cervix to a full 10 cm.”

When do the waters break? The Rapture maybe hmm?

Get yer gloves on Scott and give us a clue.

Sue :¬)

P.S. Thanks Ally. I’ve had four, but it was Imperial fingers – and I didn’t understand it even then.

Have ya tried knotting yer hankie?


DrNofog said...

I'm getting confused on who the terrorist is... I just mentioned to my wife that the link yesterday to the pictures of inside the Obama compound is gone now, and she laffed and said "You meant 'Osama' didn't you?"

I'm pretty sure it was EI who mentioned the above quip of the "1st things to go" as she seems to be the definitive authority on all these less-than-interesting aging steps, things to go, things to fall off, and "Things to Come"...
[a little play on J.D.P's Book] ;D

EI, what possible good is a knotted-up hankie, except to bruise yer schnoz when ye run it across yer upper lip area?

DrNofog said...

Anyway, my point was sposed to be that the pictures of the bedroom furnishings and blood looked like any murder scene in any low-class neighborhood here on the nightly news, including the wood-framed waterbed that is the exact same make as 1 we had back in the mid-80s! [ie. there was nothing foreign looking about that room, if they were really pix from inside that 'compound'!]

Also, one shot of the floor and blood included someone standing mostly out of the picture but just the dark trousers from the knee down and black *shoes*...
Definitely NOT military uniform and boots, but rather more like a police officer over here, as in a lot of countries they wear khakis.

Could they be fooling us again?!?

"O" has been using a Connecticut SSN. That is fraud and it will hopefully bite him hard.

Scott said...

Gosh, Sue is going to make me go find some of my old OB-GYN books!!! I never expected prophecy news to lead to my refreshing my memory of those OB days- LOL !

But seriously - once you passed the 8.0 cm mark, it seemed to always go fast - first or second (second usually somewhat faster)...

We're in the delivery room, looking for the really rapid contractions (the Tribulation IMO) - and just on the cusp of those final contractions...

(Now Sue will ask what medications the patient is on and her age......) :-)

DrNofog said...

Thanx Anon.-for the refresh... ..Yes, I was aware of that,...the "Ct" messed me up trying to make the connection as I am west-coast.

I think he has been "anointed" for his sock-puppet performance and will be pretty much immune to the very end.

Expected Imminently said...

Scott said
"(Now Sue will ask what medications the patient is on and her age......) :-)"

I don't know if gas and air is much good; I chucked my mask as it didn't work until the contraction had passed @#~! Maybe pain relief comes via prayers for the peace of Jerusalem? As for her age ... she's gotta be geriatric, do we calculate from Abraham 4000 yrs or from Jesus 2000yrs -?

I suppose her name is MRS Israel? but wait a tick, isn't she divorced? Another child out of wedlock - :O Poor love, she needs our support.

Whats in yer notes Scot, I can't decide if her first name is Eve, Sarah, Rachel or Miriam - maybe a conglomeration like Evsarachriam???? I mean to say, there are worse names to get yer tongue around than that!!!

At 8.5cm – have the waters broken??? If they have, was that WW1&2?

SERIOUSLY - c'mon, it IS a BIBLICAL metaphor - these things are so revealing

Big hug
Sue :D

Dylan my dear young sir! Take no notice of E.I., we do tend to ramble with encroaching age - just you ask that DrNofog - he'll tell ya, if he remembers! It SHOULD coz when the knot in his hankie gets up his schnoz, it's meant to remind him why he put it there in the first place ;)

P.S. Anon. Leave Prince Charlie alone, he may be a batty Prince, but he's MY batty Prince! ;)

Anybody using a stop watch to check the contraction - hmm?
