Utah high school teacher, 34, accused of having sex with 16-year-old student claims SHE is the victim after teen boy ‘wore down her defenses’

A 34-year-old Utah high school teacher accused of having sex with a 16-year-old student claims she is the victim because the boy ‘wore down her defenses.’ Lawyers for Brianne Altice asked a judge to throw out three counts of first-degree felony rape and one count of first-degree felony forcible sodomy against the teacher on Tuesday. They say the boy admitted he set out to have sex with Altice and that it was therefore legally consensual. It is illegal in Utah for a teacher or anyone in a position of power to have sex with a person under 18. ’She repeatedly refused and declined his advances until he ultimately broke down her resistance,’ defense lawyer Edward Brass claimed, according to the Salt Lake Tribune. More

More jets and warships: US increasing military presence in Black Sea

Following President Obama’s commitment of $1 billion to expand NATO’s role in Eastern Europe, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced on Thursday that the United States will be bolstering its presence in the Black Sea region. Hagel is currently swinging through Romania, a NATO member that has urged the US to increase its presence in Eastern Europe in the wake of the Ukraine conflict and Russia’s accession of Crimea. Since then, the country has been a part of joint military exercises with American forces and has promised to increase its own defense spending. According to Reuters, Hagel said President Obama’s $1 billion fund would allow for a “stronger presence of U.S. ships in the Black Sea,” and that the plan would mean a consistent stream of rotating vessels in the region.More

DAVID LETTERMAN DEMANDS GUN CONTROL, ATTACKS SECOND AMENDMENT

In an attempt to prop up the failing gun control movement, television host David Letterman clamored for more gun control during a discussion with CNN anchor Anderson Cooper last night on The Late Show With David Letterman. The nearly four minute segment was little more than a ploy to attack the Second Amendment, with Letterman setting aside comedy in favor of asking loaded questions designed to make the audience believe that support for gun control is much larger than it actually is.More

DAYS OF LOT – Utah To Appeal Same-Sex Marriage Recognition Ruling

In May, a federal judge ordered Utah to recognize hundreds of gay marriages performed in December and January. This week, the state said it won’t accept the ruling without a fight. Utah Gov. Gary Herbert and Attorney General Sean Reyes filed notice in federal court on Wednesday that the state would appeal U.S. District Judge Dale A. Kimball’s ruling validating more than 1,200 same-sex marriages, Fox 13 reports. Kimball had ruled that the state must legally recognize the hundreds of same-sex marriages performed during a 17-day period beginning Dec. 20, 2013, when the state’s ban on gay marriage was briefly overturned. John Mejia of the ACLU of Utah and an attorney for the four same-sex couples who are suing the state told the Salt Lake Tribune that Wednesday’s filing “smacks of a delay tactic.” More

Disney World’s ‘Gay Days’ Slammed By Religious Right Activist Janet Porter

DAYS OF LOT – Walt Disney World’s “Gay Days” tradition has come under fire from religious right activist Janet Porter. As Right Wing Watch first reported, Porter slammed Disney World for the unofficial event, and called upon members of her group, Faith 2 Action, to spread the word. She also suggested families “re-think” their forthcoming visits to the Orlando-based resort. “The homosexual agenda is planning to once again descend upon Disney World in Orlando, Fla. to expose your children to far more than Mickey Mouse and Space Mountain,” Porter said, before adding that “cross-dressing men will be among those parading public displays of perversion” at the theme parks. More

 EU ‘deeply disappointed’ by Israeli settlement announcement

The European Union said Thursday it was “deeply disappointed” over the Israeli announcement to commence construction of thousands of new units in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, and called on the government to “reverse this decision.  The EU also alluded to resolutions to sanction Israel for its settlements activity and vowed to “fully and effectively implement” them. Just before the EU condemnation, and hours after issuing tenders for 1,500 housing units, the Israeli government ordered officials to move forward with plans for an additional 1,800 settlement homes. The statement from the EU condemned 1,466 approved unites, but did not address the later notice. More

Law Professor: President Obama Has Assumed King-Like Powers.

A Law Professor at George Mason University is afraid that we are on the horizon of a crowning government. Professor and author, Francis Buckley, is ready to state that President Obama will be, “the most consequential American president since George Washington.”Buckley says George Washington was considered the “indispensable man” when he left the seat of President, but President Obama will be acknowledged as “the person who assumed king-like powers as President.” More

TALIBAN: WE’RE INSPIRED TO KIDNAP MORE!

Asked whether the Taliban would be inspired by the exchange to kidnap others, a commander laughed. “Definitely.” In the days and hours leading up to the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl last week, his Taliban captors in Pakistan prepared for a big sendoff. Those selected to physically hand Bergdahl over to U.S. officials at a pre-arranged location on the other side of the border in Afghanistan rehearsed the messages they wanted to convey to the American people. A videographer was assigned to cover the event, for propaganda purposes. And those closest to Bergdahl commissioned a local tailor to make him a set of the local tunic and trousers in white, which, given as a gift, denotes a gesture of respect. More

 

FALLING AWAY – Southern Baptist ‘Church’ Votes to Keep Pro-Homosexual Minister


LA MIRADA, Calif.
 – The leaders of a Southern Baptist congregation in southern California have voted to not dismiss their ‘pastor,’ despite recently stunning his congregation in announcing from the pulpit that he believes homosexual behavior is not a sin. Danny Cortez leads New Heart Community Church—a small congregation in the Los Angeles metropolitan area. Last year, Cortez concluded that he no longer agreed with the Bible’s condemnation of homosexuality and was instead “gay affirming.” In a letter to a Patheos blogger, Cortez further explained that his 15-year-old son came out as “gay” soon after he changed his mind on the homosexuality issue. When his son first broke the news, Cortez emotionally congratulated him. “My heart skipped a beat and I turned towards him and we gave one another the biggest and longest hug as we cried,” Cortez wrote. “And all I could tell him was that I loved him so much and that I accepted him just as he is.” More

 

Remember back in early 2008 when the Presidential election was in full swing and the majority of financial and political pundits were hailing the booming American economy, record home ownership and never ending growth? By the end of the year everyone had changed their tune and the United States of America was, as former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson said, “on the brink” of an unprecedented collapse. When the stock exchanges turned, credit markets froze up and the U.S. was in the midst of its worst recessionary environment since the Great Depression the oft repeated phrase “nobody saw it coming” was being peddled by the mainstream on every front in an attempt to convince Americans that the crash simply came out of nowhere. More

 

Gunman kills 3 officers, remains at large in Canadian subdivision, police say

In a country often stereotyped as being too genteel, the Canadian city of Moncton, New Brunswick, prides itself on a special distinction: It was named the most polite. So what happened here Wednesday seems unimaginable to some residents. A man dressed in fatigues and carrying a rifle went on a rampage, killing three police officers and wounding two others. Police posted to social media a photograph of a man dressed in fatigues, carrying what appeared to be a rifle. Thursday morning, the shooter was still on the loose. More

 

The Diabolical Silence on Holiness

A few years ago, the Spirit of God quickened my wife to pray concerning the importance of a dream she was given. In the dream she was walking with a pastor on church property where many were gathered in a picnic-like fellowship. As they were walking, she noticed a small cookhouse where the pastor took her in. All kinds of meals were being prepared there, including several dishes of which she was familiar with from her years as a missionary in Africa. As my wife’s eyes looked upward in that cookhouse she saw shelf after shelf of warm cooked food that had been stored, but not served. She asked the pastor why he wasn’t serving that food to the people. My wife was shocked when he replied, “This is strange food to them.” ”But it’s being wasted here,” she said. More

Don’t Hide the Holy Spirit in a Seeker-Friendly Box

Pentecost Sunday is this weekend. Some pastors may preach a sermon on the Holy Spirit’s ministry; others might read Acts 2; others may hang a red and orange banner over the stage to remind people of the Spirit’s fire. Some might even allow a livelier-than-usual song to be performed since, after all, it’s Pentecost! The sermons, Bible verses, banners and music are all great. But I’m looking beyond this Sunday. I’d like to know if we’re willing to allow the Holy Spirit to get out of the box we’ve put Him in. Everywhere I go I hear pastors asking the same question: How can we encourage the freedom of Pentecost in a church culture that has become increasingly scripted, scheduled and controlled right down to the nanosecond. The essence of Pentecost, which came “suddenly” (Acts 2:2), was its unpredictability. But there seems to be no room for God’s sudden surprises when we already have our sermons planned out for the next six months. More

Baker Forced Into Sensitivity Training After Refusing to Make Gay Wedding Cake

A family owned bakery has been ordered to make wedding cakes for gay couples and guarantee that its staff be given comprehensive training on Colorado’s anti-discrimination laws after the state’s Civil Rights Commission determined the Christian baker violated the law by refusing to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple. Jack Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, in Lakewood, Colorado was directed to change his store policies immediately and force his staff to attend the training sessions. For the next two years, Phillips will also be required to submit quarterly reports to the commission to confirm that he has not turned away customers based on their sexual orientation. ”They are turning people of faith into religious refugees. … Is this the society that we want to live in – where people of faith are driven out of business?” More

 

 

A soldier claims that he was told by his chain of command to not say anything about Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl walking off an Afghan base in 2009. Retired Army Spc. Josh Fuller told Fox News Wednesday that he was told to keep quiet about Bergdahl leaving his post and getting captured by the Taliban. “We had all known that he had deserted his post and there was never anything about him getting captured or a POW until a little while later when it came down from the chain-of-command that we needed to keep quiet about it, not say anything and that we’re going with the narrative that he’s captured,” Fuller told Fox News. More

Administration considers freeing another Gitmo inmate.

As controversy grows over the release of five hardened Taliban detainees in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the Obama administration is considering springing yet another prisoner from Guantanamo Bay. Fouzi Khalid Abdullah al-Awda appeared via a video feed before a review board Wednesday morning in northern Virginia, often smiling as his private counsel Eric Lewis made the case for his release. Al-Awda has been held prisoner for 12 years. According to Defense Department officials and his official Guantanamo detainee profile, he traveled from his home in Kuwait to Afghanistan just before the 9/11 attacks to train in terrorist camps, and “possibly” fight alongside the Taliban and Al Qaeda. More

 

 

A newfound huge asteroid, nicknamed “The Beast,” is expected zoom by Earth this weekend, and you can get a sneak preview of the space rock flyby today (June 5).  The asteroid 2014 HQ124, which is the size of a football stadium, poses no chance of hitting Earth in its flyby on Sunday (June 8), and will pass by at a range of three times the distance between the Earth-moon on Sunday (June 8). It was discovered on April 23 by NASA’s Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer, a sky-mapping space telescope. This afternoon, the online Slooh community observatory will host a live webcast preview of asteroid 2014 HQ124, beginning at 2:30 p.m. EDT (11:30 a.m. PDT/1830 GMT) at its website: http://www.slooh.com. You can also watch the asteroid 2014 HQ124 webcast on Space.com, courtesy of Slooh. The webcast will feature a discussion with Slooh astronomer Bob Berman, host Geoff Fox and asteroid impact expert Mark Boslough. More

Chinese state media lashed out at Google Inc GOOGL.O, Apple Inc AAPL.O and other U.S. technology companies on Wednesday, calling on Beijing “to punish severely the pawns” of the U.S. government for monitoring China and stealing secrets. U.S. companies such as Yahoo Inc YHOO.O, Cisco Systems Inc CSCO.O, Microsoft Corp MSFT.O and Facebook Inc FB.O threaten the cyber-security of China and its Internet users, said the People’s Daily on its microblog, in comments echoed on the front page of the English-language China Daily. It is not clear what sparked this latest round of vitriol, nor what information the U.S. firms are alleged to have stolen. But Chinese media have repeatedly attacked American tech companies for aiding the U.S. government’s cyber espionage since U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) contractor Edward Snowden revealed widespread spying programs including PRISM. More

Obama Thought He Could Amend Constitution in Second Term

President Obama told Democratic donors he might be “in a very strong position” to demand a Constitutional amendment on campaign finance reform during his second term, according to a new book. The president made the comments at a closed-door, high-dollar 2012 fundraiser in Seattle, where supporters included the likes of billionaire Microsoft founder Bill Gates. “Now, I taught constitutional law. I don’t tinker with the Constitution lightly. But I think this is important enough that citizens have to get mobilized around this issue, and this will probably be a multiyear effort,” Obama said, according to an excerpt from Big Money by journalist Ken Vogel, obtained by Mother Jones. “After my reelection, my sense is that I may be in a very strong position to do it,” Obama continued. More

Drought Is Becoming A Problem For The Economy

The Federal Reserve is out with its latest Beige Book report, and it’s become clear that drought conditions across the U.S. are becoming a problem. From the text: “Agriculture conditions proved challenging in many Districts, with drought conditions reported by some Districts and excessive moisture reported in others. Drought conditions existed in parts of the San Francisco District, particularly in California and Arizona, resulting in a reduction in crop plantings and reduced herd sizes. Dallas also noted widespread drought conditions, especially in the Texas panhandle, as did the Chicago District in parts of Iowa. On the other hand, rains delayed plantings of crops in parts of the Atlanta and Minneapolis Districts. Planting progressed well overall in the Chicago District and in Idaho as reported by San Francisco. Minneapolis and San Francisco reported a loss of hogs due to a fatal virus, contributing to higher hog prices. More generally, low cattle supplies and strong demand resulted in high beef prices in Minneapolis and Kansas City. Both Kansas City and Dallas reported problems with the quality and quantity of the winter wheat crop, though winter wheat crops were generally in good condition in the St. Louis District.” More

 

Planned Parenthood: Having an abortion ‘will not change God’s relationship with you’

Religious leaders who support abortion have written a pastoral letter to women contemplating terminating their pregnancy to assure them God loves them regardless of the decision they make. The letter has been written by the Planned Parenthood Association of Utah Clergy Advisory Board and appears on the Utah chapter’s website. Members of the board insist that abortion is “morally permissible” and that women have the “right and ability to choose what is best for you”. “We believe as religious persons that no one can make a choice for or against abortion except the woman herself. No one knows the circumstances of your life as well as you know them; no one knows what is in your heart better than you,” the letter reads. More

President Obama said electricity bills would “necessarily skyrocket” as a result of his energy policies. Rural Americans are about to find out how much. At least six electric cooperative utilities across the U.S. mid-and-southwest could raise electricity rates up to 40 percent if the Environmental Protection Agency imposes new permitting regulations on coal-fired power plants. The regulations would cost Deseret Power Electric Cooperative (DPEC) $200 million to install advanced equipment to qualify for a Clean Air Act Title V permit. DPEC is made up of six rural electrical cooperatives that serve more than 45,000 customers in Utah, Nevada, Wyoming and Colorado. Rural cooperatives have been heavily opposed to excessive EPA regulations targeting coal plants, which they say raise rates for their customers. More

 

United States officials have been holding secret back-channel talks with Hamas over the last six months to discuss their role in the newly formed unity government, according to two senior diplomatic sources with direct knowledge of the talks. The meetings were held between U.S. intermediaries and Hamas’ leadership, which lives outside the Gaza Strip in third-party countries ranging from Egypt to Qatar and Jordan. Topics included the ceasefire agreement with Israel and the recently formedunity government between Hamas and Fatah. During the talks, Hamas gave assurances that allowed the U.S. to support the unity government, despite heavy pressure by the Israeli government for them to condemn it, the diplomatic officials — one American and one Palestinian — said. They said those assurances including a commitment to maintaining a ceasefire with Israel. More

The European Central Bank is poised to impose negative interest rates on its overnight depositors, seeking to cajole banks into lending instead and to prevent the euro zone falling into Japan-like deflation. At its meeting on Thursday, ECB policymakers may also launch a loan program for banks with strings attached to make sure the money actually gets out into the euro zone economy.
It will be the first of the “Big Four” central banks – ECB, Bank of England, Bank of Japan and U.S. Federal Reserve – to go the negative interest rate route, essentially charging banks to deposit with it.
Even though the risks are limited of the euro zone entering a spiral of falling prices, slowing growth and consumption, the ECB is increasingly concerned that persistently low inflation and weak bank lending could derail the recovery. The economy grew just 0.2 percent in the first quarter, and euro zone annual inflation unexpectedly slowed to 0.5 percent in May, official data showed this week, piling additional pressure on the central bank to step in. More

 

Putin calls Hillary Clinton ‘weak’, ungraceful with her words

Russian President Vladimir Putin had a few things to say about Hillary Clinton, and women in general, Tuesday during an interview on French television, given in advance of his planned visit to the country. During the interview with Radio Europe 1 and TF1 TV, Mr. Putin was asked about some of Mrs. Clinton’s recent comments in which she compares his recent actions in Crimea to Adolf Hitler’s attempts to redraw the boundaries of Europe in the 1930s. More

 

Rosen: Intel Sources Say Bergdahl May Have Been Enemy Collaborator

Fox News reporter James Rosen told radio host Hugh Hewitt Wednesday intel sources “in and out of government” and “in and out of military” are concerned Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl may have been an enemy collaborator. “There is a major classified file associated with Sgt. Bergdahl that has been compiled by the intelligence community,” Rosen said. “Many in that community harbor ongoing, outstanding, and serious concerns that Sgt. Bergdahl may not have been just a deserter, but that he may have been an active collaborator with the enemy.” Rosen said his sources are detailing “further allegations” against Sgt. Bergdahl. “I am speaking with a number of people […] in the national security apparatus who are detailing further allegations to me, which I am trying to run to ground.” More

 

 

James Rickards: Financial collapse and massive shortages in gold coming

James Rickards’ latest bestselling book, “The Death of Money,” was released in April. Even Rickards is surprised at how fast the economic situation is unfolding, saying: “If you ask me what has happened since you finished writing the book that comes as a surprise, I would say a lot of the things I talk about in my book are happening faster than I would have expected. Things that I thought would happen in the 2015 or 2016 time frame seem to be happening now in some ways. If anything, the tempo of events is faster than expected. Therefore, some of these catastrophic outcomes may come sooner than I wrote about.” On gold manipulation and when it will end, Rickards says, “It will end when the physical shortage gets to the point that someone fails to deliver, which, at that point, there will be a buying panic. There could be a buying panic or what some people call a demand shock. One of the things I said about gold manipulation is if I was the manipulator, I would be embarrassed at this point. The manipulation is obvious. The evidence is coming in from all directions. … The manipulation is clear. When will it end? It will end when there is a physical shortage that pops up somewhere, or it will end with a short squeeze.” More

 

The worst places on Earth for Christians


Somewhere around the world, another Christian is martyred, on average, every three hours, according to a new report that identifies nations where radical Islamists are abundant as the worst locations on Earth for Christians to be.   The new World Watch List research team for Open Doors International said the majority of the cases in which Christians are killed over their faith happen in Nigeria, Syria and the Central African Republic. “The alarming increase of violence against Christians in Nigeria over the past months highlights the lack of religious freedom they have and the daily dangers they face from the Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram and other violent Islamic organizations,” said David Curry, president of Open Doors USA. Curry added, “Going to school, attending church or identifying yourself as a Christian is a very brave decision in Nigeria. It is turning into a bloodbath. Christians in the West must stand in the gap with our prayers and support.” More
