It's been a busy news week. A supreme court decision that the FCC was not clear enough on its nudity standards. And there's talk about Romney considering Rubio. Me, I think Romney's just throwing Rubio's name out there and he has no chance of being the veep candidate. 
 
but with this "big news" going on there are some really serious things happening in the world. The Egyptian military literally threw a junta and took over. It looks like there may have been Election Fraud .  
 
Election Theft; An American Plague Around the World
I have this theory that election theft is becoming more and more rampant throughout the world, and I blame the members of congress who have intentionally neglected to pass tight legislation banning un-recountable electronic voting. The US is now setting the standard for crooked elections around the world. Shame on the congress. 
 
Then there's Julian Assange's efforts to gain asylum with Ecuador. Assange really should win a Nobel prize. Again, shame on the USA for the way it's dealt with him and Manning. Ray McGovern writes about it in his article,  Julian Assange's Artful Dodge.

 
And here's an interview with former OEN editor, Kevin Gosztola about Bradley Manning.  Interview with Kevin Gosztola: The Political Persecution & Inhumane Punishment of Pfc. Bradley Manning 

Wondering why Jamie Dimon got off so lightly with his buddies in congress? Ellen Brown gives some answers in Why Congress Won't Touch Jamie Dimon: JPM Derivatives Prop Up US Debt
 
And, as always, there are a lot more really solid articles. 
Enjoy,

Election Fraud in Egypt

The Egyptian presidential election was rigged to produce a winner that the military could manipulate. After removing the two leaders from the ballot, the military engineered an election that had only 15% turnout and no legitimacy. It is an example of pure election fraud.

Is a Rising Anger, Frustration and Distress Propelling America Toward a Societal Eruption?

Never have I seen the people of America in such a state of anger, frustration and feelings of hopelessness; one in which their contempt for this pathetic, deeply corrupted government is at such a high level. Only one question remains: How much longer will many millions of Americans continue to absorb this pain and suffering before some form of societal eruption occurs?

Health Care: Give the People What They Want

Obamacare is a faux reform born of opportunism, as was Romney's original version: Play ball with those who have profited most from the run-up of medical costs and expect them to make it more affordable.

Interview with Kevin Gosztola: The Political Persecution & Inhumane Punishment of Pfc. Bradley Manning by Larry Everest

Why Congress Won't Touch Jamie Dimon: JPM Derivatives Prop Up US Debt

The national debt is growing at $1.5 trillion per year. Ultra-low interest rates MUST be maintained to prevent the debt from overwhelming the government budget. Near-zero rates also need to be maintained because even a moderate rise would cause multi-trillion dollar derivative losses for the banks, and would remove the banks' chief income stream, the arbitrage afforded by borrowing at 0% and investing at higher rates.

Dimon in the Rough: How Wall Street Aims to Keep U.S. Regulators Out of Its Global Betting Parlor

The Street's antics required a giant taxpayer-funded bailout. Most Americans are still living with the results, as are millions of Europeans.

History Is The Enemy As "Brilliant" Psy-Ops Become The News

Last September, Obama killed a US citizen, Anwar al-Awlaki, purely on the basis of hearsay that he was inciting terrorism. "This one is easy," he is quoted by aides as saying as he signed the man's death warrant. On 6 June, a drone killed 18 people in a village in Afghanistan, including women, children and the elderly who were celebrating a wedding.

City of Tulsa, OK, destroys woman's edible landscaping containing over 100 varieties of medicinal plants

An Oklahoma woman is the latest victim of government terrorism after City of Tulsa code enforcement officials came to her house and illegally tore up her entire edible garden, which contained over 100 varieties of medicinal plants. Denise Morrison was in full compliance with local laws concerning her garden, and yet city officials proceeded to both violate a court order, and willfully deny Denise of her legal right to grow food on her own property by illegally destroying it. She used the plants for food, and also to naturally treat her diabetes, high blood pressure, and arthritis. "Not only are the plants my livelihood, they're my food and I was unemployed at the time and had no food left, no medicine left, and I didn't have insurance," said Morrison about her garden. "They basically took away my life and my livelihood."

Greedy Obfuscating Polluters - GOP

If one Googles the letters GOP, one finds Greedy Old Perps, Gluttons of Power, Greedy Obfuscating Polluters, Greedy Old Pillagers (of Nature), Golf Oil and a P-word that means a person of ill repute, Greedy Obstinate Polluters, etc. One does not find any GOP references to Government Of the People in google.

Michael Klare: The Cheney Effect (in the Obama Administration)
Back in September 2001, Dick Cheney was, according to Jane Mayer in The Dark Side, being chauffeured around Washington "in an armored motorcade that varied its route to foil possible attackers." In the backseat of his car (just in case), adds Mayer, "rested a duffel bag stocked with a gas mask and a biochemical survival suit." And lest danger rear its head, "rarely did he travel without a medical doctor in tow."

Why is Obama using his ordered killing (rather than capture for trial) of bin Laden as a campaign issue? Is it because, unable to fix the economy, he is running as "warrior-in-chief"?

And my sense is that no one expects the U.N. Conference on Sustainable Development, a.k.a. Rio+20, which begins this week, with representatives from 190 countries attending, to make any difference in our disastrous drift ever more deeply into unsustainability . . . because nothing can make a difference. We're stuck, apparently, in a system that won't be constrained by international goals and agreements, which are already compromises to that system. No matter that this is a life-devouring system that serves the interests of the very few -- and at best serves them temporarily. No matter that more and more people see the insanity of this system. There seems to be no escape from it.

Sweden on alert, explosives found near nuke plant
Sweden ramped up security at its three nuclear power plants Thursday after a small amount of explosives without a triggering device was found on a forklift on the grounds of the country's largest atomic power station, authorities said. Police were investigating possible sabotage, but insisted that even if there had been a blast it would not have posed any great danger. Bomb-sniffing dogs detected the explosives in a routine check Wednesday afternoon by security staff in the power plant's industrial area near its high-security enclosure. Police declined to describe the amount or type of explosive. Bomb technicians said the material lacked a detonating device, meaning there was no danger of an imminent explosion. "But even if it would have been equipped with a detonator, a potential blast would have had pretty limited effects -- the truck would have received some damage and...

Romney Campaign Said to Ask Scott to Downplay Job Gains

Mitt Romney's presidential campaign asked Florida Governor Rick Scott to tone down his statements heralding improvements in the state's economy because they clash with the presumptive Republican nominee's message that the nation is suffering under President Barack Obama. Scott, a Republican, was asked to say that the state's jobless rate could improve faster under a Romney presidency, according to people, who asked not to be named.

Building a multi-platform media for--and by--the public
Commercial broadcasters make for bad trustees. Let's go around them... For more than 50 years, television broadcasters have been allowed to use the public's airwaves for free--based on the understanding that they would give something back to their local communities. These public service obligations, such as covering current affairs and providing children's programming, are the foundation for broadcasters' special status as trustees of the airwaves, a principle first established in the 1927 Radio Act. But the fact that over 35 percent of commercial broadcast stations do not provide any local news programming demonstrates that the trustee model is broken--and the broadcasters' opposition to mere online disclosure of data they were already obligated to collect and make public underscores just how broken it is. If the broadcasters fight simple transparency requirements...


Misbehaving particles poke holes in reigning physics theory

The reigning theory of particle physics may be flawed, according to new evidence that a subatomic particle decays in a certain way more often than it should, scientists announced. This theory, called the Standard Model, is the best handbook scientists have to describe the tiny bits of matter that make up the universe. But many physicists suspect the Standard Model has some holes in it, and findings like this may point to where those holes are hiding... What they found is that this process apparently happens more often than the Standard Model predicts it will. "The excess over the Standard Model prediction is exciting," BaBar spokesperson Michael Roney of the University of Victoria in Canada said in a statement. "But before we can claim an actual discovery, other experiments have to replicate it and rule out the possibility this isn't just an unlikely statistical fluctuation."

Dan Froomkin: Vast Majority Of Secret Money In Presidential Race Spreads Misinformation: Report

Advocates of unlimited secret political spending say it leads to a more informed electorate, but according to a new study, in reality it spreads more lies.

Nancy Pelosi Slams Contempt Vote: 'I Could Have Arrested Karl Rove ... But We Didn't'

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Wednesday that the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is playing politics with its vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress, an action she said that even she didn't seek as House Speaker when she thought someone was legitimately deserving of it. "I could have arrested Karl Rove on any given day," Pelosi said to laughter, during a sit-down with reporters. "I'm not kidding. There's a prison here in the Capitol ... If we had spotted him in the Capitol, we could have arrested him." Rove was senior advisor and deputy chief of staff to former President George W. Bush from 2001 to 2007. Asked on what grounds she could have arrested Rove, Pelosi replied, "Oh, any number. But there were some specific ones for his being in contempt of Congress. But we didn't."

Karl Rove: Too Clever For His Own Good With Crossroads GPS Secrecy?

Measures that secretive political groups keep coming up with to avoid disclosing donors may eventually backfire, Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) said Wednesday. "These organizations are doing all sorts of gymnastics to try to prevent voters from knowing the sources of their funding," Van Hollen said at a conference on "Shadow Money" hosted by the Center for Responsive Politics. "I think they're already becoming too clever for their own good." Van Hollen succeeded in closing one of the most consequential campaign finance loopholes affecting the 2012 race last month, when an appellate court turned down a request to delay a district court ruling in his favor. As a result, even secretive nonprofit groups organized under sections 501(c)(4) or 501(c)(6) of the tax code now must disclose major donors if they buy certain kinds of broadcast ads.

Arizona Radio Host Calls Obama "Monkey" and Can't Admit She's Racist

I call him a monkey."

Eric Holder contempt vote: House panel moves against attorney general

Lingering Fears Push Spanish Short-Term Borrowing Costs Up

In an auction of short-term debt, the Spanish Treasury had to pay interest of 5.074 percent to attract buyers. That compared with a yield of 2.985 percent, itself a lofty level, only a month earlier. And it came after Spain's 10-year bond on Monday reached its highest interest rate since the creation of the euro currency union. Spain plans to test the market again on Thursday, with an auction of longer-term bonds.

Republicans Back Down On Effort to Defund Transparency Rule - ProPublica

Republicans on the House Appropriations Committee today dropped an effort to defund a new Federal Communications Commission rule that will make political ad data available on the Internet.

The files are currently public but are kept on paper at stations.

Ron Paul Admits He's On Social Security, Even Though He Believes It's Unconstitutional

Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) may rail against Social Security insolvency in the public eye, but that hasn't stopped him from accepting the government checks. The libertarian-leaning Republican and former presidential candidate admitted Wednesday that he accepts Social Security checks just minutes after he called for younger generations to wean themselves off the program, in an interview on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "I want young people to opt out of Social Security, but my goal isn't to cut," he said. The Huffington Post's Sam Stein then asked Paul, "A bit of a personal question -- Are you on Social Security? Do you get social security checks?" Paul admitted he does, stating, "[It's] just as I use the post office, I use government highways, I use the banks, I use the federal reserve system. But that doesn't mean that you can't work to remove this in the same way on Social Security."

Even though we don't always give the credit they deserve... We want you, the viewer to know that they are a part of our life and living...

"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.
