Big Shock …. Iran has been hiding a 2nd uranium enrichment plant.  {See Story below.}

Have the authorities NEVER dealt with bullies or liars, EVER, in their entire lives?

Hasn’t everyone who has ever lived 20 years or longer  come up against an individual who  has a track record of lying or bullying?!

But I guess everyone in the current  UN and the US administration,  and perhaps all the other larger “powers” of the world, have never come across a bully or a liar, ever, in their entire human existence and so are taken by great surprise that Iran has a 2nd plant, which they didn’t disclose.  Oh, such shock and horror.  You mean a dictatorship actually didn’t tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, to the wonderful, forthright, upright powers of the UN and other world leaders?  Quite shocking indeed.

Just keep reading the Bible, Christians.    At least WE won’t be in the dark about the coming days!

2 Peter 3 —

7 By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.

8 But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.

9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.

11 Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives 12 as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. 13 But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.

AP Iranian President Ahmadinejad

This is a rush transcript from “On the Record,” September 25, 2009. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated. GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: There is disturbing news tonight about Iran’s nuclear program. Iran now admits it has been building, hiding a second uranium enrichment plant. As soon as this news broke, President Obama and the leaders of France and Great Britain blasted Iran for building the site. And the blasting — that was not well received by the Iranian president. He immediately fired back, insisting it is not a secret site, and threatens that the United States and its allies will regret accusing Iran of hiding a nuclear facility. Former U.S. Ambassador the United Nations John Bolton joins us live. That we’ll regret accusing them? What does that mean? JOHN BOLTON, FORMER AMBASSADOR TO THE U.N.: Well, I think he feels in a very strong position. I think he believes he can defeat any sanctions in the Security Council, if the president proceeds with them. Or even if sanctions are adopted by the Council, that they’ll be just as weak as the last three sets (ph). So I think he’s feeling pretty good this week.

//

VAN SUSTEREN: Well, have the sanctions that have been imposed so far and the ones likely to be imposed or possibly imposed — do they have any bite to them, any impact?

BOLTON: Well, they certainly have some impact on the institutions or the individuals who are specifically named by the sanctions committee, but those are sort of additional transaction costs for Iran. But the test of sanctions should be, Do they dissuade Iran from continuing its pursuit of nuclear weapons? And the answer on the three sets we have now is unquestionably no.

VAN SUSTEREN: All right, as long as we’re talking — and I mean, we – – the world is talking, they’re building! What’s sort of the timetable? I mean, how — I mean, they want to keep us talking forever so that they can build. How long are we going to be able — or how long are they going to be able to keep us talking?

BOLTON: Well, they’ve succeed so far for nearly seven years keeping the Europeans talking. And as you say, during that time, there’s no question they used it to continue to make progress on the nuclear program. That’s why people who say, What does it hurt to engage in negotiations, don’t understand that, in fact, it can hurt a lot. I think we’re very close to the point where the Israelis are going to make a decision on the possible use of military force that’ll take these negotiations out of the picture.

VAN SUSTEREN: All right, today when we listened to President Obama and others, it was, like, Oh, shock, horror, you know, this is — you know, now we know Iran is doing that. But it turns out that we were on to this a little earlier, is that right?

BOLTON: It’s true according to the administration’s own background briefings after the announcement, which means that everything the president’s been saying about his extended hand to Ahmadinejad and how much he wants to negotiate has to be in context of yet another incident in 20 years of Iran lying about this program. There is not a shred of evidence that you can commit any commitment that Iran makes about its nuclear program, so even if you get to the table and negotiate with them, why do you think they’ll live up to whatever they agree to?

VAN SUSTEREN: Well, why was he willing to say those — make those statements, do you think — I realize you can’t get in his head, but make those statements that he wants to talk to them, or we’re going to have this meeting her on October 1st with a number of nations but — why — why would he — why would he or why would anyone else (INAUDIBLE) doing this if they all know that — and have known for months that they’re building a second nuclear weapons plant?

BOLTON: I have to believe that it’s because he thinks that his ability to negotiate will find a way through this problem, and it’s not the George Bush approach of trying to isolate Iran, that he thinks he can carry it through. In fact, much of what he is doing is built on the mistakes of the Bush administration, which has allowed the European negotiations to go on for so long.

VAN SUSTEREN: So what happens on October 1st? All the nations are supposed to get together for the — the Security Council nations plus Germany and talk to Iran.

BOLTON: I think there are two possibilities. One is that Iran comes in and says, Well, of course, we’ll negotiate about the nuclear program. No problem. It’s entirely peaceful. Then we’re into six months, nine months of negotiation. Once the State Department gets a chance to sit across the table from Iran, it’ll be very hard to get up from that chair.

But second, even if Iran comes in and says, Of course we’re not going to talk about our nuclear program, and the president goes to the Security Council, it is far from certain he can even get another resolution. Today, Russian president Medvedev said, and I quote, “We will consider sanctions.” Now, let’s be clear. That’s what the Russians have said consistently for three years. They’ve never ruled out sanctions. They’ve always said they’d consider them. The problem is, when you get to the point of drafting the resolution, they did very weak and watered down.

VAN SUSTEREN: All right, this really matters to Europe and it really matters to us, not so much, I guess, to Europe, except for that they’re our allies. But it even more importantly matters to Israel. And I — and you touched on it a second ago, but how long can Israel be patient and sort of watch this talking game?

BOLTON: Well, this is extremely important because if the Iranians have an alternative site for uranium enrichment at Qom, which is what they were trying to build here, it’s at least possible that there are further alternative sites that we have not yet confirmed. And this raises the hardest possible question for Israel, that it could attack the Iranian enrichment facility at Natanz and completely destroy it, but still not stop Iran’s progress toward nuclear weapons. So what’s particularly risky here is that the military option itself may now be a lot harder to accomplish.

VAN SUSTEREN: If we were aware of this, you know, we had some inkling (INAUDIBLE) happens, what’s wrong with our intelligence? Do we not have boots on the ground? You know, what happened to sort of getting the old- fashioned intelligence so we can find out really what they have and even find out earlier?

BOLTON: Well, I think our intelligence inside Iran is very weak. We do have — we rely on information from other intelligence services. But I think the basic point is we should acknowledge there’s a lot we don’t know about the Iranian nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs. That shouldn’t make us more comfortable, it should make us more nervous. And yet today, the administration again defended the famous 2007 National Intelligence Estimate that said there’s no nuclear weapons program, and yet that’s the entire rationale why we’re concerned about this site at Qom, that it’s an alternative location to do enrichment up to weapons-grade uranium.

VAN SUSTEREN: All right, so what would you do?

BOLTON: Well, I think, at this point, we have exhausted the diplomatic option. I don’t think there’s any chance that sanctions will shift Iranian behavior. I think you have two very unattractive options. One is regime change in Iran, which cannot be turned on and off like a light switch. That’s a matter of a couple years, at least. Or other alternative is the use of military force against the assets in the nuclear program we now know about.

I think that is the decision Israel is confronting as we speak. I think there’s zero chance Obama will do it. I think this now rests with Israel.

VAN SUSTEREN: Ambassador, thank you, sir.

BOLTON: Thank you.

Is the World being prepared for the One World Leader, at the End of this Age? {Revelation 13}

Is the United States falling into it’s role in this preparation for a One World Leader.

Will the United States willingly give up it’s own Constitution and submit to the rules and laws of the ‘world’ for the sake of peace and unity?

Are we anywhere near that stage yet?

Let’s take a look at Harold Koh, the United States’ new State Department Chief Lawyer, who was just sworn in on September 17, 2009 (Read Article HERE).

Does Harold Koh actually  believe that international law supersedes U.S. federal law and that the Constitution should be just one of many guide posts for the American legal system?

Read Mr Koh’s answers to such questions, as asked by Senator Jim DeMint and posted on Mr. DeMin’t BLOG.

As I’ve stated in other POSTS, although the End Times Events seem to be taking place at a pace which is shocking,  the events  themselves should not be shocking to Christians….for it was all foretold, thousands of years ago.

Do you believe that Psalm 91 covers the threat of the H1N1 virus for  your family?
Why or why not?

H1N1 Brings Early Flu Season to Colleges, Public Schools

Thursday, September 17, 2009
By Marrecca Fiore


Public schools and colleges are seeing an early and robust flu season thanks to the H1N1 virus, although some are scratching their heads as to why it’s not as widespread as health officials predicted it would be.

And so far, it appears to be far less deadly than its well-known cousin, the seasonal flu that comes every fall and winter and kills tens of thousands of people in America every year.

“There’s no doubt the flu has gotten off to a fast and early start,” said Tom Skinner, spokesman for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “It is very unusual to see the amount of cases we’re seeing this time of year. It’s a long season and some campuses are being hit hard.”

Dozens of public schools across the country have reported both confirmed and suspected cases of H1N1. A Houston-area charter school with 200 students closed Wednesday to “disinfect” after a student tested positive for the virus. A high school in Kentucky canceled its Friday night football game on Wednesday after a player was confirmed to have the virus and several other players exhibited flu-like symptoms.

Meanwhile, colleges and universities across the country are reporting thousands of suspected swine flu cases.

//

On Tuesday, the Cornell Daily Sun — the student newspaper of Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y. — reported that the college’s health department had diagnosed 623 cases and 1 death from suspected H1N1. The Ivy League university plans to remain open in spite of widespread concern on campus.

Two weeks ago, a 22-year-old student from the University of Nebraska-Omaha died from suspected H1N1 just before starting classes there.

Still, only 600 Americans have died from the new H1N1 virus, a low number when compared to the 30,000 to 40,000 people who die annually from seasonal flu. Skinner said that could be due to whom H1N1 is targeting.

The very young, very old and people with weakened immune systems are most at risk of contracting and dying from the seasonal flu. But a different group is most susceptible to the H1N1 virus.

“H1n1 is hitting a larger population of teenagers and young adults, people with robust immune systems, so we might not see the number of hospitalizations and deaths that we see with the seasonal flu,” Skinner said. “That’s kind of how things are shaping up early on, but it’s still too early to draw any definitive conclusions on how it will ultimately affect people.”

Colleges See Early Flu Outbreak

The American College Health Association reported that as of this past Monday, 83 percent of the 253 colleges and universities that the organization tracks reported influenza-like illnesses, up from 72 percent the week before. The organization tracked a total of 6,432 cases and 16 hospitalizations over the past week, according to its Web site.

The nationwide attack rate last week was 21.5 cases per 10,000 college students, 20 percent higher than week before. The most cases were reported in the Northwest, with considerable activity also occurring in the Southeast, according to the college health association.

Skinner said the flu’s unpredictability is one reason why H1N1 is hitting some regions harder than others.

“There’s no rhyme or reason as to how it spreads and when it hits a particular region,” he said. “Last week, we, in Georgia, saw a lot of activity at colleges with some areas being hit harder than others.”

Although some regions have yet to see upswing in flu cases, Skinner warned people not to become complacent.

“Even if an area is not being hit hard now, our message continues to be that we want to make sure that those in high-risk groups get vaccinated,” he said.

Article’s topics: Temple Mount

A new Jewish interfaith initiative launched last week argues building the Third Jewish Temple in Jerusalem would not necessitate the destruction of the Dome of the Rock.

“God’s Holy Mountain Vision” project hopes to defuse religious strife by showing that Jews’ end-of-days vision could harmoniously accommodate Islam’s present architectural hegemony on the Temple Mount.

“This vision of religious shrines in peaceful proximity can transform the Temple Mount from a place of contention to its original sacred role as a place of worship shared by Jews, Muslims and Christians,” said Yoav Frankel, director of the initiative.

The Interfaith Encounter Association at the Mishkenot Sha’ananim’s Konrad Adenauer Conference Center in Jerusalem is sponsoring the program, which includes interfaith study and other educational projects.

According to Islamic tradition, the Dome of the Rock, built in 691, marks the spot where Muhammed ascended to Heaven.

But according to Jewish tradition, Mount Moriah, now under the Dome of the Rock, is where the Temple’s Holy of Holies was situated.

//

Until now Jewish tradition has assumed that destruction of the Dome of the Rock was a precondition for the building of the third and last Temple.

However, in an article that appeared in 2007 in Tehumin, an influential journal of Jewish law, Frankel, a young scholar, presented a different option.

His main argument is that Jewish doctrine regarding the rebuilding of the Temple emphasizes the role of a prophet.

This prophet would have extraordinary authority, including the discretion to specify the Temple’s precise location, regardless of any diverging Jewish traditions.

Frankel considers the scenario of a holy revelation given to an authentic prophet that the Temple be rebuilt on the current or an extended Temple Mount in peaceful proximity to the dome and other houses of prayer such as the Aksa Mosque and nearby Christian shrines.

However, both Muslims and Jews have expressed opposition to the initiative.

Sheikh Abdulla Nimar Darwish, founder of the Islamic Movement in Israel, said it was pointless to talk about what would happen when the mahdi, the Muslim equivalent of the messiah, would reveal himself.

“Why are we taking upon ourselves the responsibility to decide such things?” Darwish said in a telephone interview with The Jerusalem Post. “Even Jews believe that it is prohibited to rebuild the Temple until the messiah comes. So what is there to talk about.

“The mahdi will decide whether or not to rebuild the Temple. If he decides that it should be rebuilt, I will go out to the Temple Mount and help carry the rocks.”

Darwish warned against any attempt to rebuild the Temple before the coming of the mahdi.

“As long as there is a Muslim alive, no Jewish Temple will be built on Al-Haram Al-Sharif [the Temple Mount]. The status quo must be maintained, otherwise there will be bloodshed.”

In contrast, Baruch Ben-Yosef, chairman of the Movement to Restore the Temple, made it clear that the Temple had to be built where the Dome of the Rock presently stands.

“Anybody who says anything else simply does not know what he is talking about,” he said. “A prophet does not have the power to change the law which explicitly states the location of the Temple.”

Ben-Yosef also rejected the idea that rebuilding of the Temple had to be done by a prophet.

“All you need is a Sanhedrin,” he said.

Mainstream Orthodox rabbis have opposed attempts to rebuild the Temple since the Mount came under Israeli control in 1967.

The Chief Rabbinate of Israel even issued a decree prohibiting Jews from entering the area due to ritual purity issues.

However, several grassroots organizations such as the Movement to Restore the Temple, and maverick rabbis, including Rabbi Israel Ariel, head of the capital’s Temple Institute and a leading member of the revived Sanhedrin led by Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz, have called to take steps to renew the sacrifices on the Temple Mount and rebuild the Temple.

Come on …. one can’t actually be  refused U.S. citizenship for refusing the Gardasil Vaccine …. can one?

Welcome to the Land of the Free …. ?

No Gardasil vaccine?  No citizenship, says U.S.
Teen facing deportation for refusing unneeded meds for STD

Posted: September 11, 2009
8:26 pm Eastern

© 2009 WorldNetDaily

The controversial medication Gardasil created and marketed by Merck & Co. to battle a sexually transmitted disease is causing problems for a Florida teenager: It could cost her U.S. citizenship.

Simone Davis, born in 1992 in Britain, was abandoned by her parents and adopted at age 3 by Jean Davis, her paternal grandmother, who then married and moved to Florida, ABC News reported.

However, her adoption in Britain wasn’t recognized in the U.S., the report said, so the process was begun again in the U.S.  The 17-year-old was on track for citizenship, attendance at Pensacola Christian College and a career as a teacher, until she ran into Gardasil.

The drug was added to the list of vaccinations required for female immigrants in 2008, but the teen has declined it. For one thing, it’s purpose is to protect against the sexually transmitted human papillomavirus only. Simone has taken a virginity pledge and doesn’t see she why she should be forced to take it.


//

//

The dangers of the vaccination are not lost on her either; it’s been documented to cause serious injury and death.

“I am only 17 years old and planning to go to college and not have sex anytime soon,” she told ABC News. “There is no chance of getting cervical cancer [though to result from the papillomavirus), so there’s no point in getting the shot.”

The teen sought a waiver on religious grounds, ABC reported, and the government turned her down.

More than a dozen states are considering requiring the vaccinations, but none has so far.

Meanwhile, the ramifications of the vaccinations are being reported. WND has confirmed side effects including, “anaphylactic shock,” “foaming at mouth,” “grand mal convulsion,” “coma” and “paralysis.”

The results were confirmed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in a report obtained by Judicial Watch, a Washington group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption.

Deaths also have been confirmed.

“Given all the questions about Gardasil, the best public health policy would be to re-evaluate its safety and to prohibit its distribution to minors. In the least, governments should rethink any efforts to mandate or promote this vaccine for children,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

The document reveals the case of an 18-year-old woman who received the Gardasil vaccine, was found unconscious that evening and died. Another woman, age 19, got the drug and the next morning was found dead in her bed.

Thousands of “Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System” cases have been documented.

WND also reported on the aggressive push by Merck to lobby state legislatures to make the vaccination mandatory for schoolgirls across the nation.

In 2007 alone, Merck’s aggressive lobbying campaign and contributions to the Women in Government organization for women state legislators resulted in proposals in at least 39 states to institutionalize such vaccinations.

“I am most definitely surprised [by the immigration requirement], and I would love to know how it ever became policy,” Dr. Jacques Moritz, director of gynecology at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital in New York City, told ABC. “I wonder if the drug company could have had any influence.”

A company official told the network it wasn’t involved in making the vaccination required.
