Financial Times sent shock waves through the U.S. business community last week when headlines announced that China will overtake the United States as the “world’s leading economic power this year,” a title we’ve held since we passed England in 1872. The previous date for this anticipated event was 2019. The grim announcement was based on figures compiled by the International Comparison Program, which is hosted by the World Bank. The awesome part of this fact, however, is that the Chinese are spending this big money to build their growing military arsenal. More

An Alabama teen says she was suspended from school after she refused to take a local assessment test, contrary to an earlier report from WAAY-TV that the test was aligned with the state’s Common Core curriculum. Alyssa McKinney, an eighth-grade student at Whitesburg Middle School in Huntsville, Ala., told the station she was given two in-school suspensions after telling school officials that she didn’t want to take any more standardized tests and opted out, believing she that was an option. WAAY had reported earlier Tuesday that McKinney was suspended for opting out of a test related to Alabama’s Common core program, which allows students that option. A Department of Education spokeswoman told the station parents can choose not to have their child take part in state standardized testing if they put their refusal in writing and give it to their school.

If the constant cold weren’t enough, a brutal winter has many speculating that the polar vortex will be replaced by a “pollen vortex,” leaving allergy sufferers sniffling and miserable. Alesia Kotek is ready for the worst. She and her 13-year-old daughter Caitlin share allergies to grass and trees — and Caitlin started getting itchy, watery eyes this spring while snow was still on the ground outside their Cleveland, Ohio, home. “I’m very nervous about this year with our allergies,” Alesia Kotek said. The long, cold, winter felt by much of the U.S. may indeed have an effect on this year’s spring allergy season. But is this shaping up to be the worst allergy season on record? That depends on what you mean by worst. Experts say that for much of the country, winter’s extended cold could lead to a shorter, but more intense allergy season. More

 

 

The unthinkable may be looming for retail book giant Barnes & Noble, and plans for more store closings by year’s end are sending shockwaves through the publishing world.  In the past two years, Barnes & Noble has closed an average of 20 stores each year, although more than 600 remain, spread across all 50 states. Michael Levin, writing in the Contra Costa Times, warned that gift cards from the book chain might be worthless by year’s end. “If anyone gives you a Barnes & Noble gift card, be sure to cash it in by the end of the year. This may be the last year that Barnes & Noble bookstores remain open.” Levin added that publishers are closely watching Barnes & Noble’s struggles. “The publishers have to be running scared,” he wrote. “If B&N suddenly shutters its doors, then billions of dollars of books, which the bookstores take on consignment, go into the limbo of bankruptcy court.” More 

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz released a definitive list Wednesday of 76 “lawless” Obama administration actions and abuses of power. Cruz’s “The Legal Limit Report No. 4,” obtained by The Daily Caller, delves into little-known and little-reported details of President Obama’s executive actions. Cruz was set to discuss his report at the Federalist Society in the Promenade Ballroom of the Mayflower Hotel in Washington at 2:15 PM Wednesday. “Of all the troubling aspects of the Obama presidency, none is more dangerous than the President’s persistent pattern of lawlessness, his willingness to disregard the written law and instead enforce his own policies via executive fiat,” Cruz stated in the report’s introductory remarks.

A report released Tuesday by the White House charges Americans “literally are destroying the Earth,” according to a critic, and lists threats ranging from longer growing seasons and carbon dioxide to rising ocean levels and less ice in the Arctic.  Or is that more ice? Whatever. Because meteorologist Brian Sussman, who authored “Climategate: A Veteran Meteorologist Exposes the Global Warming Scam,” said the agenda, and the report, are not necessarily linked to reality. “Today the Obama administration released its gloom and doom National Climate Assessment. According to the 800-page report the carbon pollution created by Americans is literally destroying the Earth as we know it,” he said. More
Nancy Strumwasser, a high school teacher from Mountain Lakes, New Jersey, always thought she’d have two children. But the layoffs that swept over the U.S. economy around the time her son was born six years ago helped change her mind. Though she and her husband, a market researcher, managed to keep their jobs, she fears they won’t be so fortunate next time. ”After we had a kid in 2009, I thought, `This is not happening again,’” says Strumwasser, 41, adding, “I never really felt comfortable about jobs, how solid they can be.” More
Chris Sevier, a man from Florida, believes he should be allowed to wed his Macbook. Mr Sevier argues that if gays should be allowed to marry, then so should other sexual minorities. Mr Sevier states he has fallen in love with a pornography laden computer. “Over time, I began preferring sex with my computer over sex with real women,” he told a court in Florida. This appears to be not a passing holiday romance, but a lifelong commitment.   If gays have the right to “marry their object of sexual desire, even if they lack corresponding sexual parts, then I should have the right to marry my preferred sexual object”, he said. Mr Sevier, who describes himself as “a former judge advocate and combat veteran”, is persistent, filing claims not only in Florida but also Utah.

58 Million Working-Age People… Not Working

Despite adding more than 8 million people to the working-age population since 2007, total employment has declined by half a million, according to an analysis by the Senate Budget Committee. Before President Barack Obama took office 259.7 million people were part of the working-age population, or between ages 16 and 65. Now, the number has risen to 267.7 million. However, in the same time period, total employment declined from 146.3 million to 145.7 million. In other words, 531,000 fewer people have jobs. More 

Vladimir Putin ‘withdraws troops’ from border

President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that Moscow had pulled back its forces from the Ukrainian border amid Western fears of an imminent military invasion of Russia’s crisis-hit Western neighbour. “We were told constantly about concerns over our troops near the Ukrainian border. We have pulled them back. Today they are not at the Ukrainian border but in places of regular exercises, at training grounds,” he said after meeting with Swiss president and current OSCE chief Didier Burkhalter. More 

Hillsong, a Pentecostal powerhouse with church campuses spanning the globe, recently descended on New York City’s Times Square to declare the name of Jesus before thousands of onlookers while also shooting cover art for a new album that shares its name with the megachurch’s 2014 conference theme. Instead of flashing the usual ads, news reports or the day’s market results, 21 digital screens played for an hour a looped video comprised of just a few frames flashing repeatedly: “Jesus” and “No Other Name.” Jay Argaet, Hillsong’s Art and Communications director, told The Christian Post that at least 400 people from Hillsong NYC church joined in the nighttime campaign at Times Square, one of the world’s most sought out tourist destinations. Times Square, located between 7th Avenue and Broadway from 42nd and 47th Streets, is trafficked by an average of 360,000 pedestrians every day, many of them out-of-towners.

DES MOINES, Iowa – A newspaper editor in Iowa has been fired for opining on his personal blog that the Queen James Bible is an attempt by homosexuals “to make their sinful nature ‘right with God.’” Bob Eschliman has worked as the editor of the Newton Daily News since 2012, and has served as the publisher of the Clarinda Herald-Journal. But he found himself out of a job this past week when he spoke his mind about the Queen James Bible on his personal blog. “It’s pretty easy to brush off a nonsensical contrived version of the Bible, but that’s not the deceivers’ end goal,” Eschliman wrote. “No, they want all Christendom to abandon their faith. They do that by ‘proselytizing’ to church leaders to change their view on homosexuality.” More

 

 

Implanted medical microchips that can be expected to be mainstream by 2017 will be able to deliver drugs, including routine birth control – all through wireless communications. Currently, drug reservoir chips can be implanted right under the skin, delivering pharmaceuticals of all kinds, but here is the troubling part of this – they won’t be controlled by you – but rather by ‘medical professionals’. Imagine someone with the same level of morality as a Monsanto CEO, or a stock owner in Pfizer, or Bill Gates, deciding who gets which meds and how much. Scary, huh? More
For the past six years I have followed and written sporadically about an obscure lawsuit in a town nobody could locate on a map, noting to the few who would listen that this was one of the most important legal battles being waged in the country. This labor in obscurity has ended this week with the Supreme Court ruling in favor of a return to pre-revolutionary America. That the Court even agreed to take the case is a sign of the end of times. The Supreme Court agreed with arguments that undermine our most cherished founding principle, the separation of church and state. As you absorb the folly to come, forget not that early settlers made the arduous journey to our shores in part to escape the stifling oppression of a dominant religion. The urgent need to rid the government from the influence of a single religion was Thomas Jefferson’s unifying and guiding light. But Jeffersonian principles have been set aside for the convenience of promoting Christianity over all other religions. Welcome to the United States of Saudi Arabia. More


PHOENIX (KSAZ)
-There is a controversy over prayer at a high school graduation ceremony in the town of Pima. Students have prayed at that school’s graduation for decades, but this year it’s been banned. Students had already voted on the senior to lead them in the prayer, but yesterday school officials called it off. The superintendent has been with the district for two years now and says he made this change when he found out it could set the school up for a lawsuit. The school is located in the town of Pima near Safford Arizona. A few thousand people live there, and the high school graduating class is about 40 students, so it’s not a very large school but it is at the center of a very big controversy. More

Vietnam and China face off in South China Sea

Vietnam said on Wednesday a Chinese vessel intentionally rammed two of its ships in a part of the disputed South China Sea where Beijing has deployed a giant oil rig, sending tensions spiraling in the region. The foreign ministry in Hanoi said the collisions took place on Sunday and caused considerable damage to the Vietnamese ships. Six people sustained minor injuries, it said. ”On May 4, Chinese ships intentionally rammed two Vietnamese Sea Guard vessels,” said Tran Duy Hai, a foreign ministry official and deputy head of Vietnam’s national border committee.

A controversial sex education book available to middle school students has some parents outraged and seeking to have it removed. The book, titled “Perfectly Normal,” contains cartoon drawings of naked people and others involved in sexual acts. It’s available at middle school libraries. And although it indicates it’s meant for kids 10 years and up, it’s still making some parents uncomfortable. “Most of the time, when I showed this to parents, their jaws just hit the floor,” parent Tim Schmidt said. “They were shocked and then their next reaction was outrage.” According to the authors, the book talks about changing bodies, growing up, sex and sexual health.

This is a village where the people melt away. Tucked into the sunbaked rolling hills of Brazil’s midwest, Araras is home to what is thought to be the largest single group of people suffering from a rare inherited skin disease known as xeroderma pigmentosum, or “XP.” Those with the disease are extremely sensitive to ultraviolet rays from sunlight and highly susceptible to skin cancers. It robs victims of the ability to repair the damage caused by the sun. That’s a particularly vexing burden in Araras, a tropical farming community where outdoor work is vital for survival. “I was always exposed to the sun – working, planting and harvesting rice and caring for the cows,” said Djalma Antonio Jardim, 38. “As the years passed my condition got worse.” Agriculture is no longer a real option for Jardim. He survives on a small government pension and meager earnings from an ice cream parlor he runs. XP shows early signs that it has taken hold of its victims. More 

A professor at a public university in North Carolina forbade his students from thanking God in personal statements that will be delivered during their departmental graduation ceremony on Friday. In an email obtained by Campus Reform, Assistant Professor Eli Hvastkovs, who teaches chemistry at East Carolina University (ECU), instructed his students to prepare a “family friendly” 35­ word personal statement that mentions future plans or “thanks someone.” The students, however, were explicitly forbidden from thanking God. “I’ve had some submissions that needed to be edited. so [sic] here are some guidelines,” the email reads. “1. You can’t thank God. I’m sorry about this – and I don’t want to have to outline the reasons why.” In an interview with Campus Reform late last week, Professor Hvastkovs defended the restrictions and confirmed he sent the email banning giving thanks to God after too many students recognized religious figures during last year’s event.

One Obamacare Tax Could Cost Up To 286,000 Jobs

Just one of Obamacare’s many taxes could cost the U.S. hundreds of thousands of jobs over the next decade, according to an industry report published Tuesday. The National Federation of Independent Business projects that between 152,000 and 286,000 jobs will be lost by 2023 due to Obamacare’s health insurance tax. NFIB, a nonprofit association of business owners, actively supports the repeal of the tax. The health insurance tax has proved to be one of Obamacare’s more controversial fundraising measures. The tax targets insurance companies, charging each one proportional to their market share — the more health plans sold (Obamacare’s goal, the more insurers are required to pay. The report found that the tax will cause a spike in the cost of employer-sponsored health coverage, which will lead primarily small businesses to cut jobs. NFIB estimates that 57 percent of the job losses will come from small businesses — firms with under 500 employees, according to the federal Small Business Administration. More 

Water has flowed from Northern California’s snow-capped peaks to the south’s parched cities ever since the California Aqueduct was built in the 1960s. Now, amid one of the worst droughts in history, state officials are considering an audacious plan to send some of the water back uphill. State water engineers say using pumps to reverse the flow of the aqueduct would be a first in a drought. It would also be a complex engineering challenge that could cost millions of dollars. Still, water agencies in the desperately dry farmlands around Bakersfield say the investment is worth it to keep grapevines, pistachios and pomegranate trees alive. Agencies as far north as the San Francisco Bay Area are talking about a similar project. “There is no place on planet Earth where an aqueduct is designed to go backwards,” said Geoff Shaw, an engineer with the state Department of Water Resources who is reviewing the proposal. “But they have a need for water in a place where they can’t fulfill it, and this is their plan to fix it.” More
Hawaii will no longer defend a law that defines marriage as only between a man and a woman, five months after the state legalized same-sex marriage, state officials said on Monday. The state will stop defending against a lawsuit filed in 2011 by a same-sex couple who sought to declare Hawaii’s old marriage law unconstitutional, according to a statement from Attorney General David M. Louie. Last November, Gov. Neil Abercrombie, a Democrat, had signed a bill extending marriage rights to same-sex couples. The law took effect Dec. 2. ”The law, policy and public sentiment in Hawaii has clearly and dramatically changed in favor of marriage equality,” said Louie. In response to the 2011 lawsuit, the state had filed two separate answers, one representing then-Director of Health Loretta Fuddy and the other representing Abercrombie. Fuddy’s legal team had defended the law as constitutional, while Abercrombie had agreed with the plaintiffs. More
I never imagined when I agreed to host a Bible study in my home that such an action may one day be a violation of law. Yet that’s exactly what my very own Fairfax County Board of Supervisors is prepared to do right here in Virginia. A proposed county zoning ordinance would make it a violation to have more than a certain number of people at your home in a given period of time.  Yet, such an ordinance would stand as a blatant violation of the Constitution. As Fox News explains, “The proposed zoning ordinance limits ‘group assembly’ at residences to 49 people a day. Such gatherings ‘shall not occur more frequently than three times in any 40-day period.’” More

US President Barack Obama is sent his “warmest wishes” to the Israeli people as Israel celebrate 66 years of independence, pledging to work with Israel “to support a two-state solution to the decades-old conflict” with the Palestinian people. Such a solution, Obama said, must ensure “that the Israelis will live alongside their neighbors in peace and with security.” The American president’s Yom Ha’atzmaut message referred to Israel as a “diverse and vibrant democracy,” and as a “start-up nation.” “Generations of Jews dreamed of the day when the Jewish people would have their own state in their historic homeland,” Obama said, “and 66 years ago today that dream came true.”  Obama noted that the US was the first nation to recognize the government of Israel in 1948.  “Today we are still the first to come to Israel’s defense,” he continued. “The enduring relationship between our two nations, based on shared democratic values and our unwavering commitment to Israel’s security, has never been stronger.” Jerusalem Post

Ever wanted to know what it’s like to dance on the sun? Instruments aboard NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) captured stunning views of our nearest star late last month, as seen in this video of “prominence eruptions” blasting off the surface of the sun. It’s not a solar flare, according to NASA, but “material on the sun, doing what it always does, dancing and twisting — and in this case erupting off the side of the sun,” according to NASA spokeswoman Susan Hendrix. The material is a small, hovering mass of twisted plasma that shifts back and forth before erupting into space over the course of just one day. The suspended plasma is being pulled and stretched by competing magnetic forces until something triggers the breakaway, NASA reports. This kind of activity is fairly common on the sun, but we have only been able to view them at this level of detail since the SDO began operations just four years ago. More

 

US prepares for a deal with Iran— and for Israeli backlash

American and Israeli officials have been off script all year on a wide range of issues, caught in public disputes over the wisdom of peace talks with the Palestinians, the fate of Syria and even support for a besieged Ukraine. But perhaps none is more pressing— no single slight or quip against the other more consequential— than recent alarm bells from Jerusalem over the prospect of a nuclear deal between Iran and the rest of the world. To the surprise of many, negotiations under way in Vienna are on pace: diplomats will begin drafting the final agreement next week, and all sides publicly express optimism that a deal can be forged by the self-imposed deadline of July 20.

California School District Gives Students Absolutely Jaw-Dropping Assignment in Attempt to ‘Meet Common Core Standards’

The Rialto school district in California is under fire over a stunning eighth-grade assignment that asked students to write an argumentative essay about the Holocaust and “whether or not you believe this was an actual event in history, or merely a political scheme created to influence public emotion and gain wealth.” The thoroughly debunked idea that the Holocaust was nothing more than a “hoax” created by the Jews has long been alleged by anti-Semitic conspiracy theorists. The San Bernardino Sun first reported on the 18-page assignment that gives students three sources to use to write their essays. One of the sources reportedly alleges the gassings in concentration camps were a “hoax” and there is no evidence Jews actually died in gas chambers. More

Attendees at a wedding Saturday were shocked to spot a 60-year-old woman and a 56-year-old man engaging in sex acts on the church lawn, Utah cops report. A Salt Lake City Police Department cop was summoned to Sacred Heart Catholic Church around 6 PM by a wedding guest who “ran into the road to stop” a passing police cruiser being driven by Officer Rich Stone. Stone then approached Sandra Kruser and Wilson Benally, who were laying on the church lawn. “I walked over to the couple and I physically saw the sex act,” … More

Businesses Are Being Destroyed Faster Than They Are Being Created

What would you say about an economy where businesses are shutting down faster than they are opening?  Well, a shocking new study released by the Brookings Institution indicates that this is exactly what is happening in the United States.  We are absolutely killing small businesses and the entrepreneurial spirit in this country, and as you will see below, the number of self-employed Americans has been on a downward trend for a decade even though our population has been steadily growing.  Traditionally, small businesses have been the primary engine of job growth in this nation, so the fact that study after study has found that small business creation is being crippled in the United States is a really bad sign for our economic future.

Japan, worried about China, strengthens ties with NATO

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, concerned about China’s rising military spending and disputes with Beijing over islands in the East China Sea, signed a new partnership agreement with NATO on Tuesday. The accord, signed by Abe and NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen during Abe’s visit to NATO’s Brussels headquarters, will deepen Japan’s cooperation with the Western military alliance in areas such as counter-piracy, disaster relief and humanitarian assistance. More

WAR DRUMS – Russian Aggression Prompts Finnish-Swedish Military Pact

Finland and Sweden are looking into pooling their defense resources as the crisis in Ukraine shifts the Nordic states’ military-policy focus to protecting their home turf from participating in international peacekeeping. The countries yesterday agreed to conduct a study by October to find ways to ensure the same money spent on arms will stretch a longer way. Cooperation will begin next year with a focus on the period from 2016 onward, according to Finnish Defense Minister Carl Haglund and his Swedish counterpart Karin Enstroem. More

Every Country Will Have Armed Drones Within Ten Years.

Virtually every country on Earth will be able to build or acquire drones capable of firing missiles within the next ten years. Armed aerial drones will be used for targeted killings, terrorism and the government suppression of civil unrest. What’s worse, say experts, it’s too late for the United States to do anything about it. After the past decade’s explosive growth, it may seem that the U.S. is the only country with missile-carrying drones. In fact, the U.S. is losing interest in further developing armed drone technology. The military plans to spend $2.4 billion on unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs, in 2015. That’s down considerably from the $5.7 billion that the military requested in the 2013 budget. Other countries, conversely, have shown growing interest in making unmanned robot technology as deadly as possible. More

DAYS OF LOT – 20 Year Old German Woman kills Newborn son to save “Sex Life”

A young mother killed her baby by slitting his throat only 30 minutes after giving birth because she feared the child would interfere with her sex life, a court heard. Nadine Koenig, 20, from Regensburg in the German state of Bavaria, smothered her newborn son before killing him with a Stanley knife. Then she went out to a disco, judges were told. Prosecutor Ulrike Klein said the child was a responsibility she could not handle. ‘You couldn’t bear the thought of your far-reaching sexual and social contacts being jeopardised by this baby,’ she added.

Jerusalem
– Israeli President Shimon Peres said Tuesday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blocked a 2011 peace agreement he had secretly negotiated with Palestinian leader Mahmud Abbas. Peres said he and Abbas had finalised a draft agreement in a series of secret meetings in neighbouring Jordan but the draft was rejected by Netanyahu’s right-leaning government. ”We had gone through all of the points and the agreement was ready,” Peres told Israel’s Channel Two television in an interview on the occasion of Israel’s independence day.
