  • Daily Reflections with Oswald Chambers [June 20, 2012]

    06/20/2012 4:32:57 AM PDT · by Vision · 4 replies
    Have You Come to “When” Yet? "The Lord restored Job’s losses when he prayed for his friends" —Job 42:10 A pitiful, sickly, and self-centered kind of prayer and a determined effort and selfish desire to be right with God are never found in the New Testament. The fact that I am trying to be right with God is actually a sign that I am rebelling against the atonement by the Cross of Christ. I pray, “Lord, I will purify my heart if You will answer my prayer— I will walk rightly before You if You will help me.” But...

    Israeli demographics have always made for a chaotic political culture. While to the outside world, it's a nation of Jews, internally it's a nation of Russians, Anglos, native Sabras, Yemenites, Syrians, Persians and a hundred others. Even the smallest group has its compartmentalized identities: the delicate differences between immigrants from a single country but different towns, the countless distinctions among its religious communities in their own way are united and disunited. The politics of such a country encompass too many groups to list. There are the 19th Century Hungarian immigrants who came in preparation for the coming of the Messiah...

    The Oklahoman ^ | June 16, 2012 | Sean Murphy
    Thrown open last summer when U.S. Rep. Dan Boren announced plans to step down and not seek a fifth term, six Republicans are looking to flip the only Democrat-held seat in the state's congressional delegation from blue to red. This really is the big prize for the Republican Party in Oklahoma this year, said Oklahoma's Republican Party Chairman Matt Pinnell. It will be the biggest race in Oklahoma this year, outside of the presidential race. This is a battleground congressional race. The six Republicans are three-term state Rep. George Faught, 49, of Muskogee; business owner Markwayne Mullin, 34, of Westville;...
  • There's A Triple Tax Increase In Your Future

    IBD ^ | 06/20/2012 | By MERRILL MATTHEWS,
    Imagine if your taxes tripled literally overnight. The so-called Bush tax cuts are set to expire at the end of the year. That means that all of the current income tax rates will rise to pre-2001 levels overnight. The lowest rate will jump from 10% to 15% and the highest from 35% to 39.6%. Although Congress extended all of the cuts at the end of last year, some Democrats have pledged to let the tax cuts expire for the "rich" individuals making $200,000, and $250,000 for families. Pre-2001, dividends had been taxed at workers' income tax rate. The...

    The Obama Record: The chief executive who swore to faithfully execute the nation's laws picks those he'll ignore and makes up others through regulation and executive order. He sees no need for a Congress or Constitution. Maybe it's because Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts stumbled a bit in leading President Obama through the oath of office that the president doesn't feel bound by it. But through the awkwardness these words were heard: "I, Barack Hussein Obama, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best...

    Obama himself, Maraniss finds, deliberately distorted elements of his own life to fit into a racial narrative. The author writes that Obama presents himself in his memoir as blacker and more disaffected than he really was. The memoir accentuates characters drawn from black acquaintances who played lesser roles his real life but could be used to advance a line of thought, while leaving out or distorting the actions of friends who happened to be white. Fabricated?: 'Barack Obama: The Story' by David Maraniss catalogues dozens of instances in which Obama deviated significantly from the truth in his book A new...

    Republican White House hopeful Mitt Romney will address the largest black civil rights group in the United States next month, the NAACP said Tuesday. Romney, who squares off against President Barack Obama in November's election, will attend the annual convention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, set for July 7-12 in Houston, Texas. Romney was invited to address the convention shortly after he clinched his party's presidential nomination last month, NAACP spokesman Derek Turner said.

Over the weekend, the Montana Republican Party proved wrong those of us who believe our political discourse has gone down the toilet. In fact, our political discourse has gone to a place where there isnt even plumbing. Outside the Montana GOP convention in Missoula stood an outhouse labeled Obama Presidential Library and painted as though it had been shot full of holes, according to the local paper. Inside, a fake birth certificate for Barack Hussein Obama was stamped with an expletive...

    The Telegraph ^ | 6/20/12 | Donna Bowater
    Professor Patrick Pullicino has claimed that doctors are using a care pathway designed to help make people's final days more comfortable as an equivalent to euthanasia. The Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP) is used in hospitals for patients who are terminally ill or are expected to die imminently. Under the pathway, doctors can withdraw treatment, food and water while patients are heavily sedated. Almost a third of patients - 130,000 - who die in hospital or under NHS care a year are on the LCP. Professor Pullicino said he believed the LCP was being used as an "assisted death pathway" with...

    NHS doctors are prematurely ending the lives of thousands of elderly hospital patients because they are difficult to manage or to free up beds, a senior consultant claimed yesterday. Professor Patrick Pullicino said doctors had turned the use of a controversial death pathway into the equivalent of euthanasia of the elderly. He claimed there was often a lack of clear evidence for initiating the Liverpool Care Pathway, a method of looking after terminally ill patients that is used in hospitals across the country. It is designed to come into force when doctors believe it is impossible for a patient to...

The group, which is largely bankrolled by the conservative billionaire Koch brothers, is already on the air in Montana and Wisconsin, tying Tester to President Obama and hitting Baldwin on deficit spending.

    An illegal immigrant who passes the bar exam and demonstrates good moral character should be eligible to practice law, the State Bar has declared in a court filing. The bar, which oversees California's 225,000 lawyers, told the state Supreme Court on Monday that federal law leaves regulation of the legal profession largely up to the states and does not appear to prohibit Sergio C. Garcia, 35, of Chico from obtaining an attorney's license. Garcia was 17 months old when his parents brought him to the United States from Mexico.

    Minimum wage has been a topic of debate ever since the creation of the Fair Labor Standards Act in 1938. Just this month, U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. of Illinois has attempted to once again bring the discussion into a modern context. Jackson introduced a bill to Congress that calls for an immediate raise of the federal minimum wage up to $10 from its current standing of $7.25, according to the New York Times. This may seem like an extreme jump, but this increase was proposed in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, June 6, 2012. In fact, President Obama stated back...

    Over the course of his life, Marco Rubio has prayed in Mormon sanctuaries, Catholic cathedrals and Protestant worship centers. According to the book, Rubio put forth the same energy he directed to the LDS teachings to the traditions of the Catholic Church, and still considers himself a member of the Church to this day. As a young man, he attended services with his wife at Christ Fellowship Church in Miami, but never felt the same attachment that he did to the ancient church. After years worshiping in a Protestant congregation, Rubio says, a campaign supporter brought him back to Catholicism....

    Joy Garcia is just one of the young Panhandle voters that's worried about the future. Unemployment topped the list with young voters I spoke with, but that's not the only issue that came up. Marla Pacheco says, her issue is about human rights. "One thing that would have to be on my mind would be gay rights. You know if you take out the church, which is the whole reason why it is not legal, which the whole separation of church and state, then it should be legal." For Robert Gore, it's about city development. "Public transportation. If you don't...

    Friend -- Something big happened in Richmond last week -- and a couple millionaires and billionaires are hoping you didn't notice. The U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed last week that groups like the Koch brothers' Americans for Prosperity and Karl Rove's Crossroads GPS should have to disclose exactly who's behind the millions of dollars they're spending to influence this election. They're going to try to avoid this for as long as they can. After all, they have a vested interest in being able to spend millions anonymously to influence our elections -- many of the corporations and individuals...

    Pop star Carrie Underwood should take her own advice, which she provided in one of her top hits, and let Jesus Take the Wheel. In an interview with the London Independent, Underwood, an American Idol winner who professes to be a follower of Jesus, expressed her passionate support for same-sex marriage. Heres some of what she had to say about that: I dont know what its like to be told I cant marry somebody I love, and want to marry. I cant imagine how that must feel. I definitely think we should all have the right to love, and...

    -snip-Justice Scalia writes, for instance, that he has little use for a central precedent the Obama administration has cited to justify the health care law under the Constitutions commerce clause, Wickard v. Filburn. In that 1942 decision, Justice Scalia writes, the Supreme Court expanded the Commerce Clause beyond all reason by ruling that a farmers cultivation of wheat for his own consumption affected interstate commerce and thus could be regulated under the Commerce Clause. Justice Scalias treatment of the Wickard case had been far more respectful in his judicial writings. In the books preface, he explains (referring to himself in...

    Sarah Palins husband, Todd, is among those competing in NBCs new reality series Stars Earn Stripes, the network revealed Tuesday. This is not entirely surprising, given that SES exec producer Mark Burnett also exec-produced Sarahs TLC reality series Sarah Palins Alaska. And late last year, word around Hollywood was that Sarah and Burnett were pitching a reality series about Todds career as a championship snowmobile racer. Apparently, there were no takers. Maybe more surprising, retired Gen. Wesley Clark, the former supreme allied commander in Europe for NATO and a 2004 presidential candidate, is going to host the show with Entertainment...

    The kinds of drones making the headlines daily are the heavily armed CIA and U.S. Army vehicles that routinely strike targets in Pakistankilling terrorists and innocents alike. But the real high-tech story of surveillance drones is going on at a much smaller level, as tiny remote controlled vehicles based on insects are already likely being deployed. Over recent years, a range of miniature drones, or micro air vehicles (MAVs), based on the same physics used by flying insects, have been presented to the public. The fear kicked off in 2007 when reports of bizarre flying objects hovering above anti-war protests...

    A self-described homophobic Christian posed as a gay man for an entire year, even coming out to family and friends in the process, all to reform his beliefs. [I wanted] to see if there was any justification in the fear I had, Timothy Kurek, of Nashville, told MSNBC. Kurek, 26, who says his religious upbringing taught him that homosexuality was a sin, launched the experiment in January 2009 after a close female friend broke down in tears and admitted she was gay. She had just come out to her family and been brutally disowned, Kurek said. She had been excommunicated...
