Sandusky Nation: The Powerful Abuse the Weak
After days of graphic testimony, the conviction of former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky on 45 counts of sexual assault came as no surprise. But it had been a surprise when Sandusky was arrested in November after 15 years of egregious behavior that many in the Penn State community had been aware of. Sadly, Americans often turn a blind eye when the powerful abuse the weak.

Roberts' Switch

As Alexander Hamilton pointed out when the Constitution was being written, the Supreme Court is the "least dangerous branch" of government. It has only the trust and confidence of average citizens. If it is viewed as politically partisan, that trust is in jeopardy. As Chief Justice, Roberts has a particular responsibility to maintain and enhance that trust.

The Righteous Road to Ruin

Moral behavior is determined by our treatment of the weakest and most vulnerable among us. It is easy to be decent to your peers and those within your tribe. It is difficult to be decent to the oppressed and those who are branded as the enemy.

House Not Holder is Contemptible
Attorney General Eric Holder has repeatedly and publicly called the drumbeat attacks on him politically motivated. He said the same again, and punctuated it even more strongly by calling the action "crass," when the House with the backing and to the disgrace of 17 Democrats voted to hold him in contempt.

Hooray! We Won Something ... Maybe

Unlike other industrialized nations, the United States health-care system is centered-around for-profit insurance companies. Selling "insurance" so people can have access to health care is a money making opportunity. Withholding treatment for sickness and pain is a money making opportunity.

Supreme Court Leaves Romney in the Cold

By immediately committing to reverse a health-care reform based on the very program he implemented as governor of Massachusetts, Romney has gone to war with himself. Obviously, neither he nor his advisers has yet grasped that the decision written by Chief Justice John Roberts has changed the terms of the debate.

How Iran Might See the Threats

Hard-headed realism and outside-the-box thinking might be needed to avert another catastrophe in the Middle East, this time an Israeli attack on Iran and the unpredictable consequences. In that light, ex-CIA analyst Ray McGovern imagines a bleak report that an Iranian intelligence officer might report back to Tehran.

Time for Congress to Impeach Justice Antonin Scalia

So in 1803 Samuel Chase criticized the president for trying to expand voter rights and got impeached. In 2012 Antonin Scalia criticized the president for trying to save young undocumented immigrants from deportation... but there's virtually no chance he'll be impeached. But it goes beyond Scalia's comments on immigration -- the guy has a history of tarnishing the integrity of the Supreme Court.

Latest report: More than 1 million U.S. students are homeless
n recent years, you've heard a lot about the growing number of homeless students in Central Florida's public schools. But the problem isn't limited to our region -- or our state. Sadly, data released Tuesday by the U.S. Department of Education show that, for the first time in history, the nation's public schools reported more than 1 million homeless students.

A Brand New Ocean -- on Saturn's Moon Titan

Titan probably has a vast-globe-girdling ocean beneath it's surface too, and unlike the methane-filled lakes above, this one is made of ordinary water. That has very big implications not just for our understanding of Titan, but for our hunt for life elsewhere in the cosmos. "The search for water is an important goal in solar system exploration," said lead author Lucino Iess, a Cassini scientist at Sapienza University in Rome. "Now we've spotted another place where it is abundant"... "It's a matter of what's abundant in the solar system," he says. "Water is far and away one of the most abundant substances. Europa, as well its sister moons Ganymede and Callisto are covered with water ice like Titan... When we do have both will and wallet to make exploratory trips to watery worlds, however, the new study gives us one more intriguing place to which to dispatch our ships.

VIDEO: Outside Of Supreme Court, GOP Front Group Funded With Secret Health Insurance Cash Tries To Hide Affiliation

Money was earmarked for the Karl Rove's American Action Forum ($3.3 million) and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce ($4.4 million), two groups that led the charge in fighting against health reform and running deceptive advertising about supporters of the law. One particularly nasty American Action Network ad said congressmen who voted for the bill were providing viagra for rapists.

Train Wreck: How the Media Kept Blowing It On Obamacare

When the long-awaited decision arrived Thursday morning, two cable-news channels botched the moment. As Wolf Blitzer was speaking, CNN ran an on-screen headline: "Supreme Ct. Kills Individual Mandate." Correspondent John King called the ruling "a dramatic blow to the policy and to the president politically." On Fox News, anchor Bill Hemmer was reporting with this headline: "Supreme Court Finds Health Care Individual Mandate Unconstitutional." Both networks soon corrected their mistakes, but the damage had been done.

Another Domino Falls in the LIBOR Banking Scam: Royal Bank of Scotland | Matt Taibbi

Another one bites the dust. The Royal Bank of Scotland is about to be fined $233 million ( �150 million pounds) for its role in the Libor-rigging scandal. It joins Barclays as the first banks to walk the plank in what should be, but so far is not, the most sensational financial corruption story since the crash of 2008.

O brother, where art thou?

From Washington's point of view, whatever happens must not rock the regal dhow; blind support for whatever Israel does; barely disguised support for whatever the House of Saud and the GCC do (including harsh suppression/repression of Arab Spring installments in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Oman); and if anyone defies us, we'll bomb you or drone you to death.

Julian Assange told to turn himself in at London police station

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been served with a police letter saying he has to present himself to a London police station on Friday. Assange has been seeking political asylum inside Ecuador's embassy in London since last week as he tries to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he is wanted for questioning about alleged sex offences.

Times/HBO: A Flower For "Poppy" Bush

The problem, which neither HBO nor The Times will mention, is that Poppy Bush is only a "gracious" man in his public manners, not in his (largely deniable) actions -- the most odious of which have never been reported to the American people by either the establishment media or the so-called "alternative" (liberal) media.

Black Market for Body Parts Spreads in Europe

BELGRADE, Serbia -- Pavle Mircov and his partner, Daniella, nervously scan their e-mail in-box every 15 minutes, desperate for economic salvation: a buyer willing to pay nearly $40,000 for one of their kidneys. "Organ trafficking is a growth industry," said Jonathan Ratel, a European Union special prosecutor who is leading a case against seven people accused of luring poor victims from Turkey and former communist countries to Kosovo to sell their kidneys with false promises of payments of up to $20,000.

Scientists Recreate Matter That Flooded Universe Moments After Big Bang

This soup of quarks and gluons formed nearly friction-free primordial plasma thought to resemble the stuff that filled the universe just after the Big Bang created it some 13.7 billion years ago. (This matter would have cooled and condensed to form the protons and neutrons that make up the matter here today.) "There are many cool things about this ultra-hot matter," physicist Steven Vigdor, who leads Brookhaven's nuclear and particle physics program, said in a statement. He added that while they expected to reach such super-hot temperatures, "we did not at all anticipate the nearly perfect liquid behavior. "This friction-free liquid occurs at both ends of the temperature spectrum. "Other physicists have now observed quite similar liquid behavior in trapped atom samples at temperatures near absolute zero, ten million trillion times colder than the quark-gluon plasma we create at RHIC."

How Texas Inflicts Bad Textbooks on Us, by Gail Collins

No matter where you live, if your children go to public schools, the textbooks they use were very possibly written under Texas influence.

Sheldon Adelson pledges $10M to Koch brothers venture

Sheldon Adelson, whose donations kept Republican Newt Gingrich's U.S. presidential bid afloat for months, pledged $10 million to the Koch brothers' network. The pledge was delivered by the casino mogul's aide, Andy Abboud, during David and Carl Koch's donor summit this week in suburban San Diego and was among the biggest pledges made there, Politico reported Friday. The summit also featured the announcement of the Grassroots Institute, a new candidate training academy supported by the conservative billionaire brothers. Politico said the Grassroots Institute adds a new tool to a coalition of Koch-backed groups, including Americans for Prosperity, among the biggest spenders on anti-President Obama ads. Groups in the Koch network said they collectively would spend nearly $400 million in the run-up to the 2012 election, making the brothers key players in a planned $1 billion...

EU to recapitalise banks directly

After tough all-night bargaining, European leaders appeared to salvage what had seemed to be a summit teetering toward failure by agreeing to funnel money directly to struggling banks, and in the longer term to form a tighter union. The agreements early on Friday at a European Union summit in Brussels suggested Germany had yielded a bit on its insistence on forcing tough reforms in exchange for rescue money. That was a victory for Italy and Spain, who have argued they have done a lot to clean up their economies but are facing rising borrowing costs.

The brigade is a reconnaissance and intelligence unit, according to its Facebook page. A brigade includes three or more battalions.

Merkel Seeks Historic Reforms as Euro Crisis Intensifies

Chancellor Angela Merkel is taking a hard line on the euro crisis this week, insisting that shared debt be avoided at all costs. Her shrill tone, however, is born out of fear. Just as Europe finds itself on the verge of historic reforms, Berlin is losing control of the debate. Idealism, and the euro, might be the victims.

Archaeologists Unearth 2012 Monument with 'End Date' of Dec. 21, 2012

The discovery, one of the most significant hieroglyphic finds in decades, was announced June 28 at the National Palace in Guatemala.

CNN, Fox News err in covering today's Supreme Court health care ruling

CNN's on-air gaffe was compounded by the network sending an erroneous email alert that arrived at 10:09 which read: The Supreme Court has struck down the individual mandate for health care -- the legislation that requires all to have health insurance. It was followed at 10:18 by this: Correction: The Supreme Court backs all parts of President Obama's signature health care law, including the individual mandate that requires all to have health insurance. CNN made the mistake on air, online, by email and on Twitter.

Update: A Huge Break in the LIBOR Banking Investigation | Matt Taibbi

This is a huge story: On Wednesday, Barclays won the race to reach a deal with U.S. and British regulators, beating UBS, which was reportedly the first bank to begin cooperating with international antitrust authorities. Barclays agreed to pay at least $450 million to resolve government investigations of manipulation of Libor and the Euro interbank offered rate (or Euribor): $200 million to the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission, $160 million tothe criminal division of the U.S. Department of Justice and $92.8 million to Britain's Financial Services Authority. I wrote about the Libor investigation in the current issue of Rolling Stone, in "The Scam Wall Street Learned From the Mafia," about muni bond bid-rigging. Throughout this spring, while the Carollo bid-rigging case played out in a Manhattan courtroom, negotiations between banks and regulators were going on...

Mississippi's only abortion clinic sues over new law that could shut it down

The only abortion clinic in Mississippi is going to court to try to block a new law that it says would effectively ban all abortions in the state. The Jackson Women's Health Organization on Wednesday asked a federal judge to issue an injunction barring House Bill 1390 from taking effect on Sunday. The lawsuit contends the requirements of the bill, signed into law by Gov. Phil Bryant in April, are unconstitutional and would force the clinic to close. "This measure would force Mississippi women who are already facing difficult circumstances to travel hundreds of miles to a neighboring state to get an abortion. That is simply not an option for many poor and working-class women, and will certainly lead some to consider unsafe and illegal alternatives that pose grave risks to their health, lives, and reproductive future..."

Supreme Court Upholds Affordable Care Act

The decision says a lot about Chief Justice John Roberts, who was on the verge of writing himself a reputation after seven years in office as a highly partisan player who was using see-saw majorities to further not just a conservative judicial philosophy but also the broad aims of the neo-conservative wing of the Republican Party. This is going to be hard for right-wingers to swallow, since Chief Justice Roberts was their great standard bearer for conservative judicial and political thought and against "judicial activism." But he has enhanced, in no small way, the reputation of a court whose standing has suffered greatly since Bush v Gore.

"Never, never, never let anyone tell you that, in order to be Orthodox, you must also be eastern. The West was Orthodox for a thousand years, and her venerable liturgy is far older than any of her heresies."


- Blessed St. John Maximovitch of Shanghai and San Francisco

The purpose for presenting this Daily News section:

Daily News is very important to those who are true Orthodox Catholic Christians.  For without knowing or gaining information for understanding about what is happening in one's local area and around the world, you could  find yourself faced with denied services in the secular area, lack of income, even (although it sounds far-fetched) ability to worship openly for the time is not far off when all will have to decide if they wish to follow the Anti-Christ through the One World Church and One World Government as prophesied by the Apocalypse, the Book of Revelation of St. John or follow the faith delivered once and for all which will cause for many to be denied the abilities to survive under those kind of conditions, causing for one to consider other options. 


Many of those who subscribe to, and some who have caused or are the cause for, these things to happen are involved in or with the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church (which is not the seat of all things "Catholic") as well as its protestant daughters such as the cultic Jehovah's Witnesses, the Pentecostal Churches, the Church of Latter Day Saints also known as the Mormon Church and far too many more to list. 


Yet, at this web site we do provide some of the reasons about why they are opined to be the harbingers of that which is prophesied in Holy Scripture for the bringing about of the End Times which we have already entered.  It is not necessarily their individual members or parishioners that should be blamed since they are only the "Sheep" and not the Shepherds... So do not think we castigate individual people of themselves as we castigate those "money changers" who Jesus Christ chased out of His Father's House as the Bible Describes; for they exist in these present times too.


Events are already rushing toward that time in which this is beginning to happen and will become more fully wide-spread. In these present times all you need to really do is look around both your local and larger areas as to what is really on-going through.  Things so very little or miniscule that they are barely noticeable except to the more informed observer may become apparent. 

Those little things are the laws of the land, economics, politics, the degrading and erosion of those rights and liberties afforded by the Constitution of these United States of America and many other things such as the manner with which entertainments have taken over much of the populace, entering into and becoming a major focus in worship, and more. 

We ask you, if you don't want to believe us... Have you heard, seen or found what is termed (of the many terms being used) that there are "holding areas" or "camps" or "Closed/Fenced communities" being built by GOVERNMENT? 

Here in North America, especially in the United States of America, we must admit that what Russia has come out of (a communistic, atheist country) we are entering into.  And one last thing that needs also to be understood... Something very important to those of you who are "Catholic" in the Roman sense of its jurisdiction....   And, we believe this also holds true for many who are "Orthodox" whether "Eastern" or "Western"....

[ * Non-Denominational = Synchrestic Ecumenism, Disease of Scholasticism, altering the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ to accommodate the disease of Political Correctness and CULTIC PROTESTANTISM, and the Roman Jurisdiction (Latin Church = Vatican) of the Catholic Church) breaking of - or failure and refusal to respect and abide by  - the ancient Seven Ecumenical "Do Not" Canons which leaves everything else open to God's gift of creativity... failure & refusal to abide by and have respect for those who diligently protect one of the other Pillars of the Church, the Seals of the Confessional, but "Non-Denominational" also includes worshiping Satan's religion of Muslim, Islam by praying with them and other heretics such as 'Pentecostalism,' 'Jehovah's Witnesses,' 'Mormons,' 'Church of Christ,' any so-called church with "Community Church" in their nomenclature and others who by their false and misleading dogmas and doctrines are actually against the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ upon whom and for exacting reason we are called "Christian" in both spirit and truth from which non-denominational protestant sectarian claimants have departed from as being so-called Christian] Only a skilled spiritual father can help you!

Remember: You cannot ride two horses or serve two masters for one of them will be harmed by your thoughts, your very words and your actions which is to blaspheme the Holy Ghost (Spirit) who will depart from you.  And when the Holy Spirit departs, the great deceiver (unbeknownst to you) will rush in to fill the void under disguise of being the Holy Spirit!  Testing of the Holy Spirit to insure it is the Holy Spirit does not, for many a Sectarian Protestant and Roman, work because the Great Deceiver (Satan) is most skilled in worming and snaking his charms around your mind and heart to feign being the Holy Spirit.  Remember, Satan has the same gifts similar to the Holy Spirit but Satan's gifts are UN-HOLY and lead all who accept him (unbeknownst to you) to perdition.
