I really don’t have to say much in addition. A painful but beautiful song by a beautiful young woman with a beautiful voice – singing truth.

President Obama showed his hand this week when The New York Times wrote that he is considering converting the stock the government owns in our country’s banks from preferred stock, which it now holds, to common stock.
This seemingly insignificant change is momentous. It means that the federal government will control all of the major banks and financial institutions in the nation. It means socialism.
The Times dutifully dressed up the Obama plan as a way to avoid asking Congress for more money for failing banks. But the implications of the proposal are obvious to anyone who cares to look.
So, if Obama gets away with this, it will mean that at a stroke of the pen the USA will have become a socialist country – no longer a democracy or republic as your founders envisioned it.
I’ve been watching since Obama has become President and have been appalled at just swiftly the USA is heading towards becoming a tyranny. It seems to me from reading around the blogs and the forums I visit that quite a few people are aware of whats happening but feel powerless to do anything about it. But we should, by prayer and actions that speak from repentance towards God. Most other actions done apart from that may be good from a purely human point of view but are still just a band aid without that spiritual dimension added. I mean, the whole reason your country, and the UK, and us here in Australia (all in the same sinking boat) are in such trouble is because we turned away from God in the first place. And to add to our judgement all our administrations are turning more and more against Israel, which is a sure road to full judgement from God. We need to be active in whatever way we can that may delay God’s judgement against us all, and in the end only repentance can do that.
I’ve seen nothing on this in the Mainstream Media, not that that surprises me mind you. This news comes from HonestReporting.com, an organisation brought into being specifically to try to keep said MSM honest by shining some truth on biased reporting against Israel by the MSM.
To recall, France 2 successfully sued Karsenty who then appealed against the verdict. At the appeal trial, some of the raw footage taken during that fateful day in Gaza was aired to a packed courtroom that witnessed numerous examples of “Pallywood” staging of events. France 2, however, only made available some 18 out of 27 minutes of footage that apparently exists.
Evidently, these scenes and the unreliability of France 2’s cameraman Talal Abu Rahma has convinced the French appeals judge. Philippe Karsenty has won the appeal against his libel conviction.
So far, despite access to Reuters and Associated Press wire reports, only Jewish and Israeli media have published the trial verdict. The mainstream media has regrettably remained silent. Is the same media that did so much to propagate the al-Dura libel without verifying the facts now too embarrassed to admit that they may have erred?
From the MSM…. “chirp chirp chirp”
This is quite an important archaeological find, especially since Islam is constantly these days pushing their propaganda that the Temple never existed.
The Israel Antiquities Authority announces the first time in the history of the archaeological research of Jerusalem that building remains from the First Temple period have been exposed so close to the Temple Mount – on the eastern slopes of the Upper City.
A rich layer of finds from the latter part of the First Temple period (8th-6th centuries B.C.E.) has been discovered in archaeological rescue excavations near the Western Wall plaza. The dig is being carried out in the northwestern part of the Western Wall plaza, near the staircase leading up towards the Jaffa Gate.
From an article by Stan Goodenough of Jerusalem Newswire.
“Israel – which will in any case not recognize this institution or respect its rulings, has no chance of receiving any kind of a fair “trial” at the hands of the antisemitic individuals and groups involved.”
And that sums it up in a nutshell.
