Cleveland driver asked Jesus to take the wheel, hit motorcyclist

Usually when someone says "Jesus take the wheel" it's meant to help them through a rough patch in life.

But police say an Indiana woman took the phrase literally on July 11th, when she took her hands off the steering wheel as she was driving.

The Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette reports 25-year-old Prionda Hill told authorities she let go of the wheel because "God told her he would take it from here."

Unfortunately for Anthony Olivery, her car veered off the road and slammed into his motorcycle, throwing him to the ground. Then the car ran over him.

"When I looked at that bumper and looked at that tire, I told myself, today is the day you die," he told the paper.

The accident broke all of Olivery's ribs on his left side, cut his spleen, bruised his kidney and caused severe injuries to his left arm and leg.

An Arizona execution took nearly two hours on Wednesday, and the prisoner's lawyers said he gasped and snorted for an hour.

The execution of Joseph Wood - which Arizona carried out with a lethal-injection it had never before tried - is certain to fan the debate over how U.S. states carry out the death penalty.

U.S. legal child kidnapping at least in the thousands - Child Protection Services criminality uncovered

Congresswoman Nancy Schaefer talking about the Criminality of CPS, before she was found murdered in her home.
Justina Pelletier and her family traveled to Washington D.C. last week to promote "Justina's Law," a bipartisan bill proposed to end medical research on children. She received a standing ovation from members of Congress.

Justina was taken away from her parents by force at the age of 15, and held for over a year as Boston Children's Hospital kept her confined in their psych ward. They disagreed with the family's doctor over her diagnosis, and had the state's "child protection" social service agency seize custody of her away from her parents, against her will and the will of her parents. What ensued was a long legal battle to get their daughter back, that probably only ended positively because her story went viral and was picked up by the national mainstream media. This because her father refused to obey a court-directed gag order and went to the media with their story. Media heavyweights such as Dr. Phil, Mike Huckabee, and Glenn Beck picked up her story.

Here is a plea Justina made herself to Governor Patrick and Judge Johnston just before she was finally released:

Unfortunately, Justina's story is not a unique situation in America today, but it is part of a corrupt system that has grown in power and is now out of control. Justina's story can be retold by families all across America.

How many families have endured similar circumstances: hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands?? No one knows for sure, but based on reports from attorneys who handle these types of cases, it is at least in the thousands, if not much higher. Here are a few cases we have reported on where children were legally seized away from loving parents due to disagreements over medical treatment:

Bacon and beef prices reach all-time high

The price of beef and bacon hit its all-time high in the United States in June, according to data released Tuesday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

In January 1980, when BLS started tracking the price of these commodities, ground chuck cost $1.82 per pound and bacon cost $1.45 per pound. By this June 2014, ground chuck cost $3.91 per pound and bacon cost $6.11 per pound.

A decade ago, in June 2004, a pound of ground chuck cost $2.49, which means that the commodity has increased by 57 percent since then. Bacon has increased by 78.7 percent from the $3.42 it cost in June 2004 to the $6.11 it costs now.

In one month, beef increased from $3.85 in May 2014 to $3.91 in June 2014. Bacon increased from $6.05 in May 2014 to $6.11 in June 2014.

Each month, the BLS employs data collectors to visit thousands of retail stores all over the United States to obtain information on the prices of thousands of items to measure changes for the Consumer Price Index (CPI). The CPI is simply the average change over time in prices paid by consumers for a market basket of goods and services.

Delusional piece of Israeli propaganda states that Gazan 'terrorist' complains that Jewish God changes the path of rockets

A Mancunian who lives in Ma'ale Adumim on the West Bank

Jewish Telegraph

IN October, 1956, David Ben Gurion was interviewed by CBS. He stated: "In Israel, in order to be a realist, you must believe in miracles."

But the Talmud Yerushalmi tells us that in no way are we to depend on miracles.

It argues that we must not desist from our obligations and must not wait for miraculous intervention from the Supernatural.

How perfectly relevant are both of these views today. We witness hourly miracles.

As one of the terrorists from Gaza was reported to say when asked why they couldn't aim their rockets more effectively: "We do aim them, but their God changes their path in mid-air."

Comment: "Was reported", by whom? We could not find any other sources apart from this one, which makes it an unfounded rumor. Notice that a Muslim would not refer to the Jewish God as "their God" and attribute 'Him' any miracles, since Islam is a monotheistic religion. Therefore, he would have either said "God" (or Allah), in the belief that there is only one God for all religions, or he would have not mentioned the matter at all, not believing that "theirs" was a real God capable of miracles.

Amen! And when our God is not busy doing that, He is ensuring that the high-tech brain power of our "start-up nation" is working overtime to produce yet another Iron Dome battery to help protect our cities and us.

Comment: The Jewish Telegraph, the weekly paper that published this bizarre piece of propaganda, describes itself on its website as 'Britain's only Jewish regional newspaper'. We can only be thankful that, given the articles it publishes, it is released only weekly and is not national in reach.

Indeed, the baseless rumor that a 'terrorist' (there is that word again) has recognized the miraculous powers of the Jewish Tribal God, amounts to a myth or a legend suitable for the Bronze Age. But we live in the year 2014, and a genocide is being committed on the civilians of Gaza because of the political and territorial ambitions of Israel. Fairy tales can only make the situation much worse.

Israeli professor Mordechai Kedar suggests rape as 'terror deterrent'

Mordechai Kedar
"The only thing that can deter terrorists, like those who kidnapped the children and killed them, is the knowledge that their sister or their mother will be raped." This assertion was made by Middle East scholar Dr. Mordechai Kedar of Bar-Ilan University on an Israel Radio program. "It sounds very bad, but that's the Middle East," added Kedar, of Bar-Ilan's Department of Arabic.

The program "Hakol Diburim" ("It's All Talk") was broadcast on July 1, immediately after the discovery of the bodies of Gilad Shaar, Naftali Fraenkel and Eyal Yifrah, who were kidnapped and murdered in the West Bank. It dealt, among other things, with the question of how Hamas can be deterred.

"You have to understand the culture in which we live," said Kedar. "The only thing that deters [Hamas leaders] is a threat to the connection between their heads and their shoulders." When presenter Yossi Hadar asked if that "could filter down" the organization's ranks, Kedar replied: "No, because lower down the considerations are entirely different. Terrorists like those who kidnapped the children and killed them - the only thing that deters them is if they know that their sister or their mother will be raped in the event that they are caught. What can you do, that's the culture in which we live."

When Hadar said, "We can't take such steps, of course," Kedar continued: "I'm not talking about what we should or shouldn't do. I'm talking about the facts. The only thing that deters a suicide bomber is the knowledge that if he pulls the trigger or blows himself up, his sister will be raped. That's all. That's the only thing that will bring him back home, in order to preserve his sister's honor."

Comment: Just like the IDF can't and doesn't target civilians. Except it does. What Israel says and what it does are worlds apart.

Comment: Hadar's backtracking seems disingenuous at best. If he really thinks this is the only thing that will work to deter 'terror', does he really think the IDF won't use it? What kind of a mind even thinks in these terms?


The cover-up begins? MH17 black boxes will go to UK for analysis

Black boxes from the Malaysian jetliner downed over eastern Ukraine will be sent to a lab in the United Kingdom, said Malaysia's deputy transport minister on Tuesday.

"The procedure is to have the black boxes sent to the nearest lab that is authorized by the ICAO for analysis," Aziz Kaprawi told Reuters, referring to the International Civil Aviation Organisation.

The two black boxes are now in the possession of Malaysian authorities after Prime Minister Najib Razak brokered a deal late on Monday with eastern Ukraine's separatists leader to hand over evidence that could shed light on the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 last Thursday.

Aziz said that the black boxes would travel to a lab under the Air Accidents Investigations Branch in the U.K.

A Belgian Air Force jet was already heading towards Kiev on Tuesday afternoon to collect the boxes. A Belgian defense ministry spokesman said it should deliver them to Britain in the evening.

The Malaysia Airlines plane crashed last Thursday while en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, and a ground-to-air missile is suspected of bringing it down.

Comment: Given the sensitive nature of the current situation, with accusations coming from all sides, the handling of the black boxes should be overseen by a team of international experts, and the data should be made public. There is simply too much room for evidence tampering with a U.S./Kiev-friendly country overseeing the data analysis.


Anonymous' cyberwar against the Israeli government, the inside story

Operation Israel
The shadowy hacker outfit vows to make Israel "feel fear tingling in their servers."

The shadowy hacker collective known as Anonymous has announced it will launch a round of cyber-attacks this Friday against the Israeli government, in retaliation for Israel's ongoing military intervention in Gaza. This onslaught would add to a wave of cyber assaults staged in recent weeks by hackers largely from the Middle East, Asia, and South America, who are supporting "OpSaveGaza," an Anonymous-backed campaign targeting Israeli government websites that has succeeded in temporarily taking down the sites of the Israeli defense ministry and the Tel Aviv police department.

This isn't the first time Anonymous has zeroed in on Israel; the collective has been launching cyber-attacks against the country for several years, with mixed results. "As a collective 'Anonymous' does not hate Israel, it hates that Israel's government is committing genocide & slaughtering unarmed people in Gaza to obtain more land at the border," an Anonymous spokesperson, using the Twitter handle @YourAnonCentral, tells Mother Jones. The spokesperson notes that there has never been any Anonymous action taken against Palestinian targets, including Hamas, the outfit governing Gaza and launching rocket attacks against Israel.

The most recent round of cyber-attacks began in early July, and the Anonymous spokesperson claims that collective members sabotaged "thousands" of Israeli websites. Several of the sites targeted were indeed down recently. The International Business Times reported last week that "numerous Israeli government homepages have been replaced by graphics, slogans, and auto-playing audio files." On Monday, hackers leaked a list of log-in details they claim belong to Israeli government officials, but the government hasn't confirmed this

Comment: So far it is a "wait and see" as to how effective Anonymous can/will be in disrupting cyber security and making a statement. If successful, the group will deliver a strong message and create a degree of infrastructure havoc. At the least, they continue to draw attention to the sham of world politics and the state of humanity, more than most of us do in a lifetime.
