Traditionalist Catholics Are Starting To Believe Francis May Actually Be Petrus Romanus

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis may have been named Time magazine's Person of the Year, but he has come under scathing criticism from a growing number of traditionalist Catholics for cracking down on a religious order that celebrates the old Latin Mass. The case has become a flashpoint in the ideological tug-of-war going on in the Catholic Church over Francis' revolutionary agenda, which has thrilled progressives and alarmed some conservatives.

The matter concerns the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate, a small but growing order of several hundred priests, seminarians and nuns that was founded in Italy in 1990 as an offshoot of the larger Franciscan order of the pope's namesake, St. Francis of Assisi.

Then-Pope Benedict XVI launched an investigation into the congregation after five of its priests complained that the order was taking on an overly traditionalist bent, with the old Latin Mass being celebrated more and more at the expense of the liturgy in the vernacular.

Benedict, a great admirer of the pre-Vatican II Mass, had relaxed restrictions on celebrating the old Latin Mass in 2007.

While the order was in turmoil over this liturgical issue, the dispute at its core comes down to differing interpretations of the modernizing reforms of the Second Vatican Council, which include the use of local languages in Mass that some considered a break with the church's tradition.

The Vatican in July named the Rev. Fidenzio Volpi, a Franciscan Capuchin friar, as a special commissioner to run the order with a mandate to quell the dissent that had erupted over the liturgy, improve unity within its ranks and get a handle on its finances. In the same decree appointing Volpi, Francis forbade the friars from celebrating the old Latin Mass unless they got special permission, a clear rollback from Benedict's 2007 decision.

In the weeks that followed, traditionalists voiced outrage: four tradition-minded Italian intellectuals wrote to the Vatican accusing it of violating Benedict's 2007 edict by restricting the Latin Mass for the friars, saying the Holy See was imposing "unjust discrimination" against those who celebrate the ancient rite.

Volpi though was undeterred: He sent their founder, the Rev. Stefano Maria Manelli, to live in a religious home while he set about turning the order around.

And on Dec. 8, he took action, issuing a series of sanctions in the name of the pope that have stunned observers for their seeming severity: He closed the friars' seminary and sent its students to other religious universities in Rome. He suspended the activities of the friars' lay movement. He suspended ordinations of new priests for a year and required future priests to formally accept the teachings of the Second Vatican Council and its new liturgy or be kicked out. And he decreed that current priests must commit themselves in writing to following the existing mission of the order.

In a letter detailing the new measures, Volpi accused friars loyal to Manelli of seeking to undermine him and accused some of embezzlement. He denounced a cult of personality that had grown around Manelli, saying it "reveals a great spiritual poverty and psychological dependence that is incompatible with" the life in a religious community.

The sanctions seem harsh when compared to recent actions taken by the Vatican against other much larger religious orders or groups found to have doctrinal or other problems, such as the Holy See's crackdown on social justice-minded American nuns or the Vatican's reform efforts of the disgraced Legion of Christ. In both cases, a papal envoy was named to rewrite constitutions or statutes and oversee reforms, but Volpi's actions with the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate would appear to go much further.

Traditionalists have charged that a double standard is at play, with a conservative, tradition-minded order being targeted for particular sanction on ideological grounds by a pope with a progressive bent.

"I hope that I am not being intemperate in describing this as rather harsh," the Rev. Timothy Finigan, a British priest whose "The Hermeneutic of Continuity" blog is much-read in traditionalist circles, wrote last week of the sanctions.

Francis has called Benedict's 2007 decree allowing wider use of the Latin Mass "prudent," but has warned that it risks being exploited on ideological grounds by factions in the church; Francis has made clear his disdain for traditionalist Catholics, saying they are self-absorbed retrogrades who aren't helping the church's mission to evangelize.

A group of tradition-minded lay Catholics has launched an online petition seeking Volpi's ouster, but it's not clear how many signatories have signed on; an email seeking figures wasn't returned Saturday.

The Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, defended Volpi as a sage, esteemed and experienced administrator and dismissed calls for his removal.

"He knows religious life well, was for many years head of the Italian conference of religious superiors and I think his nomination was a wise choice," Lombardi said in an email to The Associated Press. "While the situation seems difficult and painful, it appears the letter is yet another demonstration that the naming of a commissioner was necessary and that he knows what to do with the powers he has.

"I don't have any reason to doubt it," Lombardi concluded.

North Korea 'preparing to carry out new nuclear test'

North Koreans pledged their allegiance to Kim Jong-un on Tuesday, the second anniversary of the death of his father, as South Korea warned Pyongyang could be preparing to carry out a fourth nuclear test and launch a long-range rocket.

Cho Won-jin, a senior member of South Korea's parliamentary intelligence committee and the ruling Saenuri Party, said on Tuesday that the North is attempting to shift the attention of its citizens away from the execution of Jang Song-thaek, his uncle and mentor, and to play up external threats to the nation.

A new nuclear test and the successful launch of a rocket would also serve to enhance the image and prestige of the young dictator as the nation marks two years since Kim Jong-il's sudden death.

North Korea has already conducted three underground nuclear tests, the most recent in February. Analysts believe that nuclear engineers attempting to miniaturise a warhead so that it can be fitted to a ballistic missile have made good progress in the last 12 months, but still need to carry out at least one more test.

Nearly 500 Sheriffs Stand Up for Gun Rights

China Test of New Long-Range Missile

China’s military conducted the second flight test of its newest long-range missile that is capable of hitting targets in the United States with a nuclear warhead, according to defense officials.

The flight test of the new Dong Feng-41, or DF-41, took place Friday from the Wuzhai missile launch center in Shanxi province to an impact range in western China, said officials familiar with details of the tests.

It was the second test of the new, road-mobile, long-range ICBM that U.S. intelligence agencies assess will be outfitted with up to 10 multiple, independently-targetable reentry vehicles, or MIRVs.

Prior to Friday’s flight test, the last DF-41 flight test took place July 24, 2012.

Pentagon spokesmen did not return emails seeking comment on the missile test.

The most recent test indicates that China’s long-range missile development is continuing, and the missile is raising new concerns about China’s professed nuclear doctrine of not being the first to use nuclear weapons in a conflict.

Disclosure of the nuclear missile flight test comes as tensions remain heightened between the United States and China over the near collision between the USS Cowpens, a guided missile cruiser, and a Chinese navy tank landing ship in the South China Sea on Dec. 5.

The State Department and Pentagon protested the incident, which involved the Chinese ship stopping in the path of the Cowpens, forcing the cruiser to make an abrupt maneuver to avoid a collision. The incident took place near China’s first aircraft carrier, the Liaoning.

The DF-41, with its range of between 6,835 miles and 7,456 miles and expected multiple-warhead capability, is viewed as a potential “first strike” weapon, or a weapon capable of carrying out a surprise nuclear attack that would knock out an enemy’s arsenal and limit its counterstrike capability.

A report by the Air Force National Air and Space Intelligence Center made public in May referred to China’s development of a new long-range missile with multiple warheads, in addition to current long-range DF-31 and DF-31A mobile ICBMs.

“China has the most active and diverse ballistic missile development program in the world,” the NASCI report said. “It is developing and testing offensive missiles, forming additional missile units, qualitatively upgrading missile systems, and developing methods to counter ballistic missile defenses.”

“The Chinese ballistic missile force is expanding in both size and types of missiles.”

Without mentioning the DF-41, the report said, “China may also be developing a new road-mobile ICBM capable of carrying a MIRV payload, and the number of warheads on Chinese ICBMs capable of threatening the United States is expected to grow to well over 100 in the next 15 years.”

Defense officials said the report was referring to the DF-41.

If the new DF-41 is deployed in the future with a reload missile per launcher, it would vastly increase the numbers of nuclear warheads in the Chinese arsenal, as many as 120 to 240 warheads for each DF-41 unit.

“What this means is that Obama administration suggestions that the United States can continue to reduce its number of deployed warheads, perhaps to 1,000 or less, is simply irrational,” Fisher said.

“What we know and don’t know about China’s ability to rapidly increase its warhead numbers points to an unacceptable level of risk for the United States.”

In addition to the DF-41, China also has begun to deploy its submarine-launched ballistic missile called the JL-2 and may develop a follow-on JL-2A with up to three warheads.

“Inasmuch as the U.S. Navy estimates there will be up to five of the 12-missile carrying Type 094 nuclear powered ballistic missile submarines, this at least indicates that [missile submarines] could become another source for fast Chinese warhead growth,” he said.

The publication Jane’s Strategic Weapon Systems reported in 2012 that the Chinese were developing the DF-41, also designated the CSS-X-10, and that it is intended to replace easy-to-target silo-based DF-5 and DF-5A missiles.

Larry Wortzel, a former military intelligence officer and member of the congressional U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, told the House Armed Services Committee in testimony last month that the new DF-41 is part of China’s growing nuclear missile arsenal.

“China is enhancing its nuclear deterrent capability by modernizing its nuclear force,” Wortzel said Nov. 20. “It is taking measures such as developing a new road-mobile intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), the DF-41. This missile could be equipped with a multiple independently targetable reentry vehicle (MIRV), allowing it to carry as many as 10 nuclear warheads.”

Wortzel said the Chinese, in addition to MIRVs, could outfit their missiles with “penetration aids” designed to defeat U.S. missile defenses. China also may be developing rail-mobile ICBMs, he said.

The Chinese nuclear buildup could have a profound impact on regional security. China recently has been bullying its neighbors, specifically Japan and Philippines, over islands and maritime claims.

“When China achieves a position of nuclear parity or even superiority, we can expect that it will make far more vigorous demands on the United States that could diminish the security of America and its friends and allies,” Fisher said.

Mark Stokes, a former Pentagon official and specialist on China’s strategic nuclear systems has said the DF-41 has been mentioned in Chinese military writings and appears to involve a larger, solid fuel rocket motor derived from the DF-31 series ICBMS.

Ground tests of the DF-41 motor have been detected over the past several years.

There are suspicions among U.S. intelligence analysts that the DF-41 is based on Russia’s mobile ICBM known as the SS-27 and that the DF-41 will incorporate Russian missile guidance technology.

China in August conducted two flight tests of the DF-31A ICBM and in November 2012, another DF-31A was flight-tested.

Tsai The-sheng, Taiwan’s director of the National Security Bureau, as the intelligence service for the island nation is called, told Taiwan’s legislature that China is still developing the DF-41 and the sub-launched JL-2.

“Neither of them has been deployed at any Chinese military base yet,” Tsai said, the official Central News Agency reported April 15.

Tsai said that China’s fast pace of military technology development makes it very likely the People’s Liberation Army will deploy a multi-warhead DF-41 in the future.

Muslims Massacre At Least 700 Christians

Muslim jihadists have butchered at least 700 Christians, and how much of this news is actually being told? Not that much, in reality. One report says:

The streets of Bangui are littered with corpses. The Red Cross buried hundreds of bodies in mass graves.

With such massacres like this, I know what you are thinking: What can we do? There is something that you can do. Give to Rescue Christians, and you can be sure that your donation will save a life.

The Red Cross has put the death count at 400, but according to Open Doors, its much higher:

In reality we must speak of at least 700 dead. The Red Cross has not counted the people that have been slaughtered and thrown into the river or buried directly by relatives or by fishermen.

As we find out from Open Doors, as a result of the Christian attacks on Muslims, Muslim men, women, and children, armed with guns and blades, went door to door into Christian homes and butchered people senselessly. 20,000 Christians fled into to the church of Pastor Nicolas Guerékoyamé, the president of the Evangelical Alliance, and an open critique of the jihadist Seleka group who were, initially, the aggressors in this religious war.

Amongst those killed were Pastors Raymond Doui, age 46; Elisée Zama, age 33; and Jean-Louis Makamba, age 48.

Pastor Elisee Zama, killed by Muslims

The Muslims murdered Pastor Doui in his own home, and now his five children are fatherless, and his wife is without a husband.

The Muslim devils also charged inside the church compound of Pastor Jean-Louis Makamba, shot him dead and also murdered his son. But this is not enough for these murderers, they are still pursuing the pastor’s wife and nine children.

This type of violence has been unheard of for centuries, which means that we are in a very significant time in human history and eternal Providence.

100 years of Creating inflation at the Fed

On December 23, 1913, the banksters created the private cartel masquerading as a government agency, the Federal Reserve, to manipulate fiat money and engineer asset bubbles designed to level economies.

On December 16, 2013, the current chairman of the Fed, Ben Bernanke, otherwise known as Helicopter or Bubbles Ben, said in a speech celebrating the triumph of financial sector will over the common man and his pocketbook that the cartel will resist all political pressure.

Bernanke took the opportunity to declare himself an inflation warrior just like his predecessors, Paul Volcker and Alan Greenspan. This is doublespeak in its full glory.

In fact, Bernanke’s legacy is inflation, albeit miscalculated. “The way that inflation is calculated has changed more than 20 times since 1978, and each time it has been changed the goal has been to make it appear to be lower than it actually is,” notes Zero Hedge. “If the rate of inflation was still calculated the way that it was back in 1980, it would be about 8 percent right now and everyone would be screaming about the fact that inflation is way too high.”

Obama and crew play along with the trick. The government cites something called the “chained consumer price index” (chained CPI) to measure the deleterious effect of inflation on people’s standard of living.

Ron Paul explains:

Chained CPI is an effort to alter the perceived impact of inflation via the gimmick of “full substitution.” This is the assumption that when the price of one consumer product increases, consumers will simply substitute a similar, lower-cost product with no adverse effect. Thus, the government decides your standard of living is not affected if you can no longer afford to eat steak, as long as you can afford to eat hamburger.

“One of the tricks the CPI formula uses to keep the metric low is to remove food and energy from the CPI,”Duane Storey explains. “Unfortunately, since food and energy consume a large portion of most family’s disposable income, the removal of those items from the CPI limits its usefulness in tracking price inflation.”

The government came up with the CPI doozy to avoid raising the cost of living adjustment on the Social Security Ponzi scheme. It does not, however, prevent the government from jacking up taxes on folks who experience a nominal increase in income. Like a skilled Mafia lawyer, the government has all kinds of tricks up its sleeve when it comes to the practice of separating you from your money.

Bloomberg once ran a segment (see above) on the “hockey stick,” not the one used by warmists led by Al Gore that insist your diminishing standard of living is responsible for wrecking the planet, but another one based on inflation and the consumer price index. The index remained low, with minor bumps up and down, until 1913, when the Fed was established in the dead of night at Christmas, and then the hockey stick curve began to shoot up in earnest.

Likewise the value of the dollar, the real mark of inflation. The following chart gets the point across:

As you can see, our pathetic dollars are now almost entirely worthless. But that has not stopped the Fed from devaluing what puny worth is left.

In February, 2012, the Federal Open Market Committee said its goal over the next 20 years is to devalue the dollar another 33 percent. As Forbes noted at the time, “an increase of 2% a year over a period of 20 years will lead to a 50% increase in the price level. It will take 150 (2032) dollars to purchase the same basket of goods 100 (2012) dollars can buy today. What will be called the ‘dollar’ in 2032 will be worth one-third less (100/150) than what we call a dollar today.”

In other words, the Federal Reserve has decided to engineer massive inflation while its current chairman insists the bankster cartel is in the business of controlling inflation.

Creating inflation is job one at the Fed. “The unelected policymakers at the Fed are also the last to feel the effects of inflation. In fact, they benefit from it, as does the government as a whole,” Ron Paul explains. Government colludes with the Fed to hide the real rate of inflation, currently around 9 percent. According to the warped-out CPI, though, you are experiencing a mere 2 percent inflation rate.

“If you trust the 9% number (which I believe is a more useful metric of inflation than the current one that uses fancy substitution math to come up with a metric that represents a reduced standard of living), then the purchasing power of every dollar is effectively halved in only 8 years. That means whatever you have in the bank will be worth only 50% of what it is today by the year 2018,” writes Duane Storey.

Meanwhile, Bubbles Ben, as he prepares to exit office and make way for the next bankster cigar store Indian, tells us he is a master inflation warrior and, for the most part, the corporate media print this fallacy without criticism.

The Crimes of HSBC

Money Laundering, LIBOR Banking Scandal, Destruction of Indigenous Lands

Derrick Broze
Activist Post

Multinational bank HSBC is known for scandals as much as for global banking.

In the summer of 2012 the British multinational bank HSBC was exposed for laundering money for drug cartels, Iran, and moving money for an al-Qaida linked Saudi bank. A report presented to the Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigation in July 2012 detailed HSBC subsidiaries transporting billions of dollars in armored vehicles, clearing suspicious checks, and assisting drug cartels in buying planes through Cayman Island accounts. At the hearing David Bagley, HSBC’s head of compliance, resigned in front of the committee stating that, “Despite the best efforts and intentions of many dedicated professionals, HSBC has fallen short of our own expectations and the expectations of our regulators.” In the wake of the investigation and 335-page report HSBC was fined $1.9 billion.

In July 2012 the news broke that HSBC, along with RBS, JP Morgan, Deutsche Bank and other banks were involved with manipulating the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR)giving off a false impression of credit and providing them with a hefty profit. The European Commission launched an investigation into the claims and now the banks have begun to receive fines for their role in the theft. As of this article eight banks have been fined a total of $2.3 billion dollars, including American banks CitiGroup $95 million and JP Morgan for $107 million. HSBC has not been fined yet but may face fines soon.

Funding violent drug cartels, and financial theft are not the only complaints lodged against HSBC. HSBC is now finding itself the enemy of environmental and indigenous rights activists. The Rainforest Action Network has detailed how an HSBC financed company is forcing the development of oil palms on the lands of indigenous communities in Papua New Guinea.

HSBC-financed palm oil company Kuala Lumpur Kepong (KLK) recently claimed ownership of three land development licenses within traditional indigenous lands. KLK brought in palm oil seedlings and is believed to have begun planting seeds without permission. KLK has been used of using slave labor in Borneo and child plantations in Sumatra.

Although community representatives filed a complaint with the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), the organization charged with overseeing land development within the Palm Oil Industry, the Collingwood Bay case has been largely ignored by the RSPO. It should be noted that HSBC sits on the board of the RSPO. Critics accuse the RSPO of being a mere formality that attempts to legitimize the activities of palm oil firms and their financiers.

The people of Collingwood Bay have responded to the actions of KLK and HSBC with global calls for support. Adelbert Gangai, representative of the over 7,000 people from 326 clans in 22 villages, stated that, “(We) have been marginalized and become slaves on their own land. We do not wish this for the people of Collingwood Bay.”

The Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) released a report,Banking on Extinction, that found HSBC leading the financing of palm oil firms, and the development of indigenous lands. HSBC lent $470 million to palm oil company Triputra Agro. The company has moved forward with plans to clear forest inhabited by endangered gibbons and other species. A rescue mission for gibbons found the animals close to death from starvation believed to be attributed to the destruction of their natural habitat, in Borneo. According to HSBC’s own forest policy they are forbidden from funding activities that destroy “high conservation value areas”.

As the EIA forests spokesman Jago Wadley said: “HSBC’s 60 million customers around the world would be surprised and appalled to learn that such a high-profile and trusted brand is profiting from large-scale deforestation even as it projects a wholesome public image of sustainability.”

Make no mistake, HSBC is not the only criminal financial institution still doing business. These firms have become too big to fail and too big to jail. Banking institutions bankroll governments and finance corporations around the world with ease. Their relationships are further blurred by owning Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and sitting on the boards of various watchdog agencies. As long as there is an oligarchical, corporatist state existing, the people will continue to be robbed, and mistreated.

As individuals we can choose to take actions that will free us in our daily lives and begin limiting the power of these financial institutions that continue to wreak havoc. Stop using the banks and watch them fail. Invest in your community and cut ties with the big banks. It sounds simple because it is. We have the power to choose what we do with our money and how much we let our desire for goods override our ability to create a more free, compassionate, connected world.

Our people cannot even read the Constitution, much less understand it

How to Avoid the Mind-Numbing Weapons of Mass Instruction

Dave Hodges December 15, 2013 The Common Sense Showeducation rips off children

“The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie—deliberate, contrived, and dishonest, but the myth—persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic. Belief in myths allows the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.”

People often ask me, “Dave, how do we turn this around and defeat the globalists”? I frequently tell them that there is no turning this around. I have an attorney who is continually writing to me and stating that we need to teach the people the Constitution. “Mr. lawyer, our people cannot even read the Constitution, much less understand it”.
The parents and grandparents have lost this country to a group of vicious and sociopathic bankers because for 3 generations, Americans have failed to turn off their TV sets and allowed the state to educate their children.This article is about why parents need to home school their children in order to keep them out of the clutches of the government. Yes, there are good teachers and great schools still left. However, there are not enough of them. We need to rescue our children from the propaganda of the state, before they are totally taught to love their servitude and educate them in an environment which will honor true knowledge, not blind obedience.
If the Biblical saying (Hosea 4:6) “My people perish from lack of knowledge.”  is indeed true, Americans should be placed at the top of the endangered species list. We need to educate our children at home before we lose this generation as well.

Dumb and Dumber

Just how dumb are we? Consider a new report from the Intercollegiate Studies Institute about civic literacy concludes that the average American is too dumb to vote intelligently.


Over 70% of the test takes, including college students and elected officials flunked the 33 multiple choice question test which covered basic civics.
How bad were the results? Consider the fact that 27% of the elected officials surveyed could not name even one right contained in the first amendment. How will we know when the country is placed under martial law? The answer: We won’t!  But neither will the majority of our leaders.
Rick Shenkman, author of the book Just How Dumb Are We, found that 87% of American college students could not find Iraq on a map. In fact, Shenkman also found that:

- Only 1 in 5 know that we have 100 United States senators.
-Only 2 out of 5 citizens can name the three branches of the federal government.
-Only 20% of young Americans between the ages 18-34 read a newspaper daily. An amazingly low 11% report surfing Internet news sites. 
Among 18- to 24-year-old Americans given maps:
-83 percent cannot find Afghanistan
-76 percent cannot find Saudi Arabia -70 percent cannot find New Jersey
-11 percent cannot find the United States

Only 17% of college graduates understood the contrast between a free market economy and centralized planning. Perhaps this explains why America was not rioting in the streets following the passage of the bail out. I am left wondering what percentage of Americans actually believe that the Federal Reserve is both Federal and has reserves. Soon, nearly 100% of Americans will not be able to find their wallets.

 Class Size

Public or private schools, with class sizes of 30-40 kids,  doesn’t inspire creative or critical thinking. If large classeshave to be on the same page, literally, those who learn faster are held back by those who are slower. Rote memorization does not lead to true understanding.

Mass Indoctrination

The public educational system has always been used as a tool for indoctrinating kids into whatever the currently accepted belief systems and standards of behavior are considered acceptable by the elite. As I have written about, elementary students in San Bernadino, CA., made their students bow on one knee when they heard the teachers whistle. All across this country, all support of the Second Amendment is eviscerated from most schools (e.g. suspending children for drawing a gun, pointing a finger gun, playing imaginary war games on the playground). 

Mass Inoculations

Homeschooling your children can help them avoid the often dangerous and required vaccinations and enforced psychotropic “medications”. There are many concerns of how children cope with the drudgery of forced institutional education by resorting to illegal drugs or prescription drugs obtained illegally.

Mass Illiteracy

It takes the schools of today far too many years to teach reading and writing skills along withbasic grammar, and math. Most of the problem is due to sheer class size. It should take only a few months to learn each of these basic items for most. Today, about 40% of  highschool graduates are lacking in those basic literacy skills. 

Mass Cloning

A generation of making dedicated teachers teach the exact same thing, using the exact same methods, has produced an educational cloning factory. This type of education produces a conditioned response in our children, instead of free and independent thinking. It is an excellent propaganda tool.

Mass Deception

Robert Kennedy Jr. once stated that, “Americans are over entertained and under informed.” You can help switch that around by exposing your children to texts and videos that are not allowed throughout all the grades of public education. How about teaching children how the Federal Reserve system is ripping them off and has been for a century in which the dollar has slipped in value to less than four cents. How about teaching our children how to balance a checkbook. How about allowing children to pursue what they love, learn real history, engage in a critical analysis the present political leadership and most of all, let’s have them learn what the research says about real contentment and long lasting happiness? Our children need to be challenged in ways that are appealing to them. The establishment is interested in using school as an instrument of indoctrination and teaching that the state is sovereign, not the people.


The state wants to produce children who are smart enough to do their jobs, but not so smart that they question authority. The banker-run state has accomplished their goal in subverting the Constitution and turning us into passive sheep who are incapable of challenging authority. If we hope to mount any resistance against the tyranny which has taken over our country, we need to remove the tyrants incessant voice from the ears of our children. The biggest reason to home school your children is to reintroduce God to the lives of our young in a manner that integrates His perfect word into the daily lives of our children in a manner which is fully engrained into the lives of our children. 
Home school children consistently outperform public school, home school your children!

Russia Confirms Tactical Missile Deployment on NATO Borders

MOSCOW, December 16 (RIA Novosti) – Russia confirmed Monday that it has deployed tactical ballistic missiles near its borders with NATO but said the move did not violate international agreements.

Bild newspaper in Germany reported over the weekend that Russia had “quietly” moved 10 Iskander-M (SS-26 Stone) missile systems into its Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad and along its border with the Baltic States and NATO members Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

The deployment marks the realization of threats from Moscow to respond with a firm gesture to NATO plans to place elements of the so-called European missile shield close to Russian borders.

“The deployment of Iskander missile battalions on the territory of the Western Military District does not violate any respective international agreements,” ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said.

Konashenkov declined to provide details on the number of deployed missiles or their specific locations.

The Iskander-M is a mobile theater missile system equipped with two solid-propellant single-stage 9M723K1 guided missiles with "quasi-ballistic" capability.

With its reported effective range of 400 kilometers (250 miles), the Iskander does not fall into the category of intermediate-range nuclear missiles banned by the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty between Russia and the United States.

The missiles deployed in Kaliningrad could hit NATO targets located in Poland, Lithuania and even in Germany, however.

This GLOBAL Debt Problem Is Going To Cause MASS DEATH..Here's Why.

Japan Launches "No Guts But All The War Spending Glory" Military Plan

We warned last week of the rising nationalism and concerns about Abe's intentions and this evening the escalating tensions in the East China Sea are clear once again. In an effort to "normalize" an officially 'pacifist' policy, a hawkish Abe announced that Japan has tonight increased its military budget notably to buy drones, amphibious vehicles, submarines, and vertical take-off aircraft to boost defenses around the remote Senkaku islands. It seems the farce is getting more surreal as Japan also considers obtaining the means to counter ballistic missiles the point of launch. Why go to war and risk it all by printing and deficit spending your country into oblivion for a 'purpose' when you can do it without spilling a drop of blood?

Via AFP,

Japan said Tuesday it intends to boost military spending by five percent over the next five years, with a hardware splurge intended to beef up defence of far-flung territories amid a corrosive row with China.

The cabinet of hawkish Prime Minister Shinzo Abe agreed 24.7 trillion yen ($240 billion) would be spent between 2014 and 2019, including on drones, submarines, fighter jets and amphibious vehicles, in a strategic shift towards the south and west.

The shopping list is part of efforts by Abe to normalise the military in Japan, which has been officially pacifist since defeat in World War II. Its well-equipped and highly professional services are limited to a narrowly defined self-defensive role.

New defence guidelines approved by the cabinet on Tuesday said Tokyo will introduce a "dynamic joint defence force," intended to help air, land and sea forces work together more effectively in the face of danger.

"China ... is taking dangerous action that can draw unexpected contingencies," said the guidelines.

Via Bloomberg,

The government will also consider obtaining the means to counter ballistic missiles at the point of launch, according to new security plans which set a total five-year budget of 24.67 trillion yen ($239 billion), up about 1 trillion yen on the previous five-year plan.

Japan will set up a marines-style force to deal with any island incursions, equipping it with 17 tiltrotor aircraft and 52 amphibious vehicles, as well as three surveillance drones, according to documents given to reporters in advance.

Of course, the populism garnered by such a move is worrisome as these two powers engage in a bigger and bigger pissing match; but it seems, as we warned here, that no matter the cost, there may be war. Bear in mind this move comes on top of passing the Secrecy bill last week.
The right to know has now been officially superseded by the right of the government to make sure you don’t know what they don’t want you to know. It might all seems like a bad joke, except for the Orwellian nature of the bill and a key Cabinet member expressing his admiration for the Nazis, "just as Germany needed a strong man like Hitler to revive defeated Germany, Japan needs people like Abe to dynamically induce change."

We are sure the world (and the BoJ) will be more than happy to fund this latest Keynesian black hole.

Ash cloud from Mount Etna's latest eruption forces closures Catania airport in Sicily


An ash cloud from Mount Etna's latest spectacular eruption has forced the closure of Catania's airport in eastern Sicily.

The airport said it would remain closed at least until Monday evening. Several flight departures and arrivals were canceled, and at least two flights were diverted to Palermo's airport in the western part of the Mediterranean island.

Etna is Europe's most active volcano. Its latest series of eruptions has lasted for weeks now, occasionally causing a change in flight routes. The eruption hasn't forced evacuation of the villages on the mountain's slopes. Its last major eruption occurred in 1992.
