GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul issued the following statement on his campaign website this afternoon, following his son Rand’s treatment at the hands of the TSA in Nashville.

“The police state in this country is growing out of control.  One of the ultimate embodiments of this is the TSA that gropes and grabs our children, our seniors, and our loved ones and neighbors with disabilities.  The TSA does all of this while doing nothing to keep us safe.

“That is why my ‘Plan to Restore America,’ in additional to cutting $1 trillion dollars in federal spending in one year, eliminates the TSA.

“We must restore the freedom and respect for liberty that once made American the greatest nation in human history.  I am deeply committed to doing that as President of the United States.”

The website also posted a picture of Senator Rand Paul talking to reporters following the incident with the TSA:

Congressman Paul has been a long time critic of the TSA. In 2010 he introduced into the House the “American Traveler Dignity Act,” which would remove TSA agents’ immunity from prosecution for implementing invasive pat-down procedures. Paul re-introduced the legislation in the summer.

Israeli-Saudi Cyberwar Heats Up

Israeli-Saudi Cyberwar Heats Up

Last week the Insider Report disclosed that an Israeli teenager identified only as “OxOmer” launched a cyberwar counterattack against Saudi hackers who divulged tens of thousands of Israeli credit card numbers on the Internet.

Now the Saudi hackers have struck again, attacking the websites of the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange and El Al Israel Airlines.

And once again OxOmer has retaliated, bringing down the official websites of Saudi Arabia’s Monetary Agency and Abu Dhabi’s Securities Exchange on Tuesday.

In the new attacks on Israel, “what was hacked was our main website, which provides information,” Idit Yaaron, a Tel Aviv Stock Exchange spokeswoman, said on Monday. “The trading computer was not hacked and trading is going on as usual.”

El Al issued a statement saying it was taking measures to protect its website and warned there may be more disruptions.

OxOmer claims he is 17 years old and belongs to a four-member team of hackers who call themselves Israel Defenders. In the earlier counterattack, they published hundreds of Saudi credit card numbers. They told the Jerusalem Post they were also behind the new attacks on the Saudi and Abu Dhabi sites.

They said in a message on a forum that their actions came “because lame hackers from Saudi Arabia decided to launch an attack against Israeli sites.”

The cyberwar shows no signs of ending. The Saudi hacker who calls himself OxOmar told the Post he would continue to organize attacks on Israeli sites until the government apologized for what he called “genocide against Palestine.”

And Israeli hacker OxOmer warned: “If the lame attacks from Saudi Arabia will continue, we will move to the next level, which will disable these sites longer term.”

Also on Monday, a pro-Israeli hacker named Hannibal opened up another front in the cyberwar, publishing the details of 30,000 Facebook account holders from Arab countries, and threatening to publish information about bank accounts and credit cards belonging to Arab citizens if the attacks on Israeli sites continue.

Then on Wednesday, Arab hackers broke into the server of Israel’s Anti-Drug Authority and redirected visitors to a website showing images of Palestinian gunmen and the words “death to Israel” and “Gaza hackers were here.”

A group of Israeli hackers calling themselves the “IDF Team” retaliated on Thursday by disabling the websites of the Arab Bank of Palestine and the UAE’s central bank, the Post reported.

The Israeli hackers threatened to “disable stock market sites, government sites, and sites related to economy and even security.”

The cyberwar continues.

Finding The Will Of God

Finding The Will Of God
TGIF Today God Is First Volume 1 by Os Hillman

I desire to do Your will, O my God; Your law is within my heart. – Psalm 40:8

How would you describe the process by which you find and do God’s will in your life? For some, finding God’s will is like playing bumper cars. We keep going in one direction until we bump into an obstacle, turn, and go in another direction. It is a constant process of elimination, failure, or success. Is this the way God would have us find His will? No. There is much more relationship between hearing God’s voice and living within the mystery of His omnipotence in our lives. Perhaps this process is more like water in a streambed. The water is constantly flowing to a final destination. As it presses against the streambed, it gently points the water toward its final destination. There are no abrupt head-on collisions, simply slight modifications of direction. Occasionally, we come to a sharp turn in the contours of our life. For those times, God allows us to stretch our normal response to change. A popular Bible study says that we cannot go with God and stay where we are. Finding and doing God’s will always require change. What changes are necessary in your life to join God in what He is already doing?

There is a direct connection between finding and doing God’s will and having God’s law in our heart. A friend once complained that he did not know what God wanted of him in his life. My immediate response was, “How much time do you spend with God in Bible study, prayer, and meditation on Scripture?” “Only a few minutes a day,” he replied. How can we expect to hear and discern God’s voice if we don’t spend focused time with Him? If you have a spouse, how did you get to know him or her before you were married? You spent time together. You got to know everything about each other. Our walk with God is no different. It isn’t enough to have a desire to follow God; we must put our energy into getting to know Him. His will for us flows out of our relationship, it is not an end in itself. Commit yourself to seeking Him more in your life by spending more time with Him. “Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know” (Jer. 33:3).

Weiner’s Pension Worth a Whopping $1.2 Million

Friday, 17 Jun 2011 12:20 PM

By Martin Gould

With a career in tatters and a pregnant wife, most people would be facing a financial crisis, but Anthony Weiner still has his pension to fall back on — and it’s a pension the rest of America would love.

Weiner, pension, 1.2 millionAfter just 12 years in Congress, Weiner’s benefits add up to $1.2 million, reports The Wall Street Journal, and he doesn’t have to worry if the Stock Market keeps dropping.

Weiner was on the standard congressional salary of $174,000 before announcing his resignation on Thursday, three weeks into his humiliating Twitter sexting scandal. He was covered under the Federal Employee Retirement System, to which he contributed less than 1 percent of his pay.

The Journal’s Smart Money section says the 46-year-old New York congressman has two choices. He could take discounted payments of around $25,000 a year starting when he turns 56 in 2020 or he could wait another six years and get around $35,000 a year.

The National Taxpayers Union came up with even higher figures as it took into account Weiner’s time as a congressional staffer to then-Rep. Charles Schumer in the 1980s and early ’90s. It says he would get $32,356 at 56 and $46,224 if he waited. Taxpayers Union Executive Vice President Pete Sepp told Newsmax that those figures are based on Weiner’s making the highest contributions throughout his congressional career.

“For American taxpayers, the scandal may have only just begun,” said Sepp, who pointed out that even legislation Republican Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois introduced this week to expand the number of crimes that would debar members of Congress from receiving their pensions would not catch Weiner.

Weiner would have been contributing less than $200 a month to his pension, Sepp said.

The Journal compares Weiner’s $1.2 million figure with a private-sector employee who put $1,000 a month into a 401(k) plan and received a $3,000 matching contribution from his employer over the same period. Even if the stock market does well, he could expect to have only $231,000, less than a fifth of what Weiner is entitled to.

Making it more one-sided, any inflation would eat into the private-sector pension, while Weiner’s and others under the federal system adjust automatically to cost-of-living increases.

The Journal also points out that Weiner also has a stock portfolio worth approximately $300,000 and a pension due from his six-year stint on New York City Council.

“The point here isn’t that politicians don’t deserve decent retirement plans. The last thing America needs is financially insecure lawmakers,” the Journal reports. “But Weiner is getting the equivalent of a $1.3 million exit payment after serving just 12 years on the job.

“Now that’s worth tweeting about.”

Obama: UN ‘Legitimated’ U.S. Action in Libya

(CNSNews.com) – In a 30-page report justifying continued military involvement in the NATO-led strikes in Libya, the Obama administration claims that U.S. military involvement is “legitimated” by the UN Security Council – saying that therefore no congressional authorization is needed.

“U.S. forces are playing a constrained and supporting role in a multinational coalition, whose operations are both legitimated by and limited to the terms of a United Nations Security Council Resolution that authorizes the use of force solely to protect civilians and civilian populated areas under attack or threat of attack and to enforce a no-fly zone and an arms embargo,” the report said.

Obama also claimed that the U.S. military’s involvement falls under his constitutional authority as commander in chief and his power to conduct foreign relations.

“Given the important U.S. interests served by U.S. military operations in Libya and the limited nature, scope and duration of the anticipated actions, the President had constitutional authority, as Commander in Chief and Chief Executive and pursuant to his foreign affairs powers, to direct such limited military operations abroad,” the report said.

Thirdly, the administration claims that its actions are not governed by the War Powers Act because the U.S. involvement does not constitute “hostilities” – the term used by the act to limit the time the president may commit U.S. forces into combat.

The War Powers Act limits the president to a unilateral military commitment of no more than 60 days before he must request congressional authorization. However, Obama claims that he needs no such authorization.

“The President is of the view that the current U.S. military operations in Libya are consistent with the War Powers Resolution and do not under that law require further congressional authorization, because U.S. military operations are distinct from the kind of “hostilities” contemplated by the Resolution’s 60 day termination provision.”

While the report misleadingly uses the term “further authorization,” the fact is that Congress never granted it authorization in the first place. Instead, Obama has issued a series of letters to congressional leadership explaining his actions and has dispatched various aides and surrogates to brief Congress on the mission in Libya.

Agenda 21

Now these are some scary stuff America. This is not a jock just plain fact and not some doomsday conspiracy stuff. This is not the “the sky is falling” beware America you are being invaded and enslaved slowly but surely, read it for yourselves……

Is the Soros-Sponsored ‘Agenda 21’ a Hidden Plan for World Government? (Yes, Only it Is Not Hidden)

What is Agenda 21?  If you do not know about it, you should.

Agenda 21 is a two-decade old, grand plan for global ’Sustainable Development,’ brought to you from the United Nations. George H.W. Bush (and 177 other world leaders) agreed to it back in 1992, and in 1995, Bill Clinton signed Executive Order #12858, creating a Presidential Council on ‘Sustainable Development.’ This effectively pushed the UN plan into America’s large, churning government machine without the need for any review or discussion by Congress or the American people.

‘Sustainable Development’ sounds like a nice idea, right?  It sounds nice, until you scratch the surface and find that Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development are really cloaked plans to impose the tenets of Social Justice/Socialism on the world.

At risk from Agenda 21;

The Agenda 21 plan openly targets private property.  For over thirty-five years the UN has made their stance very clear on the issue of individuals owning land;

Land cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice; if unchecked, it may become a major obstacle in the planning and implementation of development schemes. The provision of decent dwellings and healthy conditions for the people can only be achieved if land is used in the interest of society as a whole.

Eliminating all of America’s mercury discharges “will do nothing about the other 99.5 percent in our atmosphere,” the authors state.

You probably have heard about waste in government spending. There is so much talk about cut spending from both parties that will make ones head spin. Every one is looking to cut spending and be the hero that saved America! Right now i will give the vote of no confidence to EPA for spending unspecified amount of man hours and Only God would know how much this has cost the tax payers!

EPA Rules on Mercury Will Cost Billions, ‘Do Nothing’

The Environmental Protection Agency has issued nearly 1,000 pages of new rules ordering American power plants to significantly reduce their emissions of mercury and other air pollutants, a move that will reportedly cost electricity producers $10.9 billion a year.

EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson claims the rules will save 17,000 lives and generate up to $140 billion in health benefits, but “there is no factual basis for these assertions,” two experts maintain.

In an opinion piece in The Wall Street Journal, Harvard University scientist Willie Soon, an expert on mercury and public health issues, and Paul Driessen, senior policy adviser for the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow, point out that the United States currently emits only 41 to 48 tons of mercury per year.

Forest fires, meanwhile, emit at least 44 tons annually, cremation of human remains emits 26 tons, Chinese power plants discharge 400 tons — 10 times the American total — and volcanoes, subsea vents, geysers and other sources emit more than 9,000 tons per year.

U.S emissions account for less than 0.5 percent of all the mercury in the air, so eliminating all of America’s mercury discharges “will do nothing about the other 99.5 percent in our atmosphere,” the authors state.

“In the face of these minuscule risks, the EPA nevertheless demands that utility companies spend billions every year retrofitting coal-fired power plants that produce half of all U.S. electricity.”

The authors also state that blood mercury counts for American women and children actually decreased between 1999 and 2008, placing them below the safe levels established by the EPA, and that despite frequent warnings about the dangers of consuming fish, “the 200,000,000 tons of mercury naturally present in seawater have never posed a danger to any living being.”

They conclude: “The EPA’s actions can be counted on to achieve only one thing — which is to further advance the Obama administration’s oft-stated goal of penalizing hydrocarbon use and driving a transition to unreliable renewable energy.”
