The state of Queensland, still reeling from the effects of weeks of widespread flooding, is bracing for the arrival of what could be the state's worst cyclone in history.
Tropical Cyclone Yasi, which currently lies northwest of Vanuatu in the Pacific Ocean, is expected to strengthen into a category four storm, the second highest category, before hitting the north coast of the Sunshine State later this week.
In preparation for its arrival, tourist resorts on the popular Whitsunday Islands have been evacuated and several ports along the busy coast have been shut down. Residents in towns from Innisfail to Mackay have been warned to batten down the hatches or consider fleeing before the storm hits early on Thursday morning, while emergency management teams have held meetings across the state's north.
Authorities have also warned locals to stock up on food, water, batteries and other essentials in case they are cut off for a number of days after Yasi strikes.
There are fears that Yasi could whip up the seas and create a storm surge that would cause significant flooding in low-lying areas, just weeks after devastating floods killed more than 30 people and covered an area the size of France and Germany combined.

COLUMBIA, Mo. – A monster winter storm took aim at a third of the nation Monday, threatening to lay a potentially deadly path of heavy snow and ice from the Rockies to New England, followed by a wave of bitter, bone-rattling cold that could affect tens of millions of people.
Cities including St. Louis, Kansas City and Milwaukee could be hardest hit, with expected midweek snowfalls of up to 2 feet and drifts piled 5 to 10 feet. Even hardy Chicago could be in for its third-worst blizzard since record-keeping began.
"I wouldn't want to be on the road in open areas tomorrow night," said forecaster Tom Skilling of Chicago television station WGN. "I don't think I'd want to be driving in the city either. The fact is people die in these things. They skid off the road and go wandering around in whiteout conditions."
Warmer areas were not safe, either. The system could spawn tornadoes in parts of the South.
While record snowfalls have pounded the Northeast in one of that region's most brutal winters, the Midwest has been comparatively unscathed, until now.

From Joseph Farah at World Net Daily:
In case you didn't notice, and few have, there is a global Islamist revolution under way.
The world's press doesn't see it.
The talking heads on cable TV don't see it.
Washington doesn't see it.
It's a case of not noticing the forest for the trees.
With revolts going on in Egypt, Tunisia, Pakistan, Yemen, Lebanon and Jordan, most of them clearly orchestrated from Iran, it's easy to believe these are unrelated, disconnected uprisings.
But if you have been observing the Muslim world like I have been for 35 years, what's happening right now is as big a development – maybe bigger – than what happened in 1979 when backers of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, with a push from Jimmy Carter, overthrew Iran's Shah Mohamed Reza Pahlavi in one of the most tragic and unfortunate international developments of the late 20th century. We, in the West, have been paying the price for it ever since.
This is the work of the Muslim Brotherhood, with the aid and encouragement of Tehran. And the ripple effect of what we're seeing is hard to overstate.
As the leader of Jordan's powerful Muslim Brotherhood, Hammam Saeed, warned over the weekend, the unrest in Egypt will spread across the Mideast and Arabs will topple leaders allied with the United States.
I've done my part to alert the public to the insidious work of the Muslim Brotherhood, including right here in the U.S. But, again, most Americans don't get it. They've been hoodwinked by the media and government school system into believing there is no active conspiracy for a worldwide caliphate, and certainly no threat to the U.S. from what the brotherhood refers to as the Muslim Mafia.
An amazing book by the same name, "Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America," was published more than a year ago by WND Books with the intention of exposing the secret international cabal working on behalf of Saudi-style Shariah law right here in America. Again, the book, a work of daring and courage and enterprise got a collective yawn from the politically correct establishment news media.
Mohamed Ghanem, one of the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, calls Egypt to stop pumping gas to Israel and prepare the Egyptian army for a war with it’s eastern neighbor.
Speaking with Iranian television station Al-Alam, Mohamed Ghanem blamed Israel for supporting Hosni Mubarak’s regime. Ghanem also said that the Egyptian police and army won’t be able to stop the Muslim Brotherhood movement.
There are doubts about the loyalty of the Egyptian army to president Mubarak. If the brotherhood takes control over Egypt, it will be very messy from the whole region.
In the meantime, EUR/USD , GBP/USD other pairs have enjoyed the relative calm in the Egyptian crisis and regained most of their losses on Friday. An escalation will send them down, and will strengthen the dollar, yen and Swiss franc.
Editor's note: Learn more about the Muslim Brotherhood:
The MB describes itself as a political and social revolutionary movement; it was founded in March 1928 in Egypt by Hassan al-Banna, who objected to Western influence and together with MB’s most influential ideologues Sayyid Qutb , called for return to the earliest days of Islam as a model for society. MB is an expansive and secretive society with followers in more than 70 countries, dedicated to creating a global Islamic order that would discriminate against women and punish nonbelievers. Its members and supporters founded and funded al Qaeda, Hamas, and other radical Muslim terror groups, as well as Muslim student organizations on six continents, including one “of the largest college student groups in the United States.”

ASIA ONE NEWS KAGOSHIMA, Japan - Minor eruptions continued at Shinmoedake peak on the border of Kagoshima and Miyazaki prefectures Friday, a day after the volcano erupted explosively for the first time in 52 years.
The volcano in the Kirishima mountain range spewed columns of smoke reaching more than 3,000 meters high, sending volcanic ash flying over the prefectures.
The Meteorological Agency said the explosive eruption--defined as one that causes air vibration and a seismic tremor--occurred at 3:41 p.m. on Thursday. House windows shuddered throughout the Kyushu region, and in Kochi and Ehime prefectures on Shikoku as the blast affected air pressure.
KING5.com Swarm of nine earthquakes at Mount St. Helens MOUNT ST. HELENS, Wash. – A series of nine small earthquakes shook an area near Mount St. Helens over the weekend.
Seismologists at the University of Washington have been monitoring the quakes.
A 2.6 quake occurred at 2:26 p.m. on Saturday about six miles north of the volcano. Another quake, a 2.5, occurred at 2:44 p.m. in the same area. The depth for both quakes was two miles. Another quake occurred six miles north-northwest at 10:48 p.m. That measured 2.2 and was 2.2 miles deep.
Smaller quakes, ranging from magnitude 1.3 to 2.2, occurred on Sunday.
THE TIMES LIVE Jan 30, 2011 10:50 PM | By Sapa-DPA
Israeli Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu said that his country was "anxiously" watching events in Egypt and elsewhere in the region, amid the continuing massive anti-government protests in Israel's large Arab neighbour.
At the weekly cabinet meeting, Netanyahu said he had spoken about the Egyptian situation to US President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
It had also been discussed by the Israeli cabinet, including Defence Minister Ehud Barak and Foreign Minister Avigdor Liebermann, and with Israeli intelligence officials, he said.
"...The constant, unrelenting pressure of the hydrocarbons creating the corrosive mix will widen the fissures, split open the cracks and permit more oils to gush into the Gulf at hundreds, and then thousands, and then tens of thousands of breached points over a greater and greater area.
The process is underway right now, initiated by the titanic blowout and failure of the wellhead. Nothing on Earth can stop it and the technology to reverse it doesn't exist.
Meanwhile the biology of the Gulf is being radically changed by the massive ongoing hydrocarbon pollution and the chemical agents created by part of the oil bonding with the dispersant Corexit.
The deep sea soup that is clouding the Gulf is like an erupting volcano of toxins. Those toxins are not just sitting dormant under the water. There's evidence they are mutating and poisoning the aquatic life, poisoning the seafood that is now being caught and eaten by humans again—even "poisoning" the Gulf Loop current, according to some recent U.S. Navy studies and affecting the flow of the Gulf Stream.
“...I think the media now has to…tell the American people who’s getting money for poisoning the millions of people in the Gulf." – Hugh Kaufman, senior EPA analyst, admits millions have been poisoned in the Gulf states.
A biochemical bomb went off in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20, 2010—a bomb as dangerous and destructive as a nuclear blast.
A nuclear explosion causes deaths that can be measured immediately; BP’s unintentional biochemical bomb, however, is a slow-motion explosion that's propelling forward shockwaves of disaster.
Millions exposed to future uncontrolled hemorrhaging, lesions, cancers
Angry scientists presented strong evidence that millions of Gulf area residents have been poisoned by the BP Gulf disaster. Worse, millions more could be exposed to long term poisoning from benzene contamination. Benzene exposure leads to cancer.

Is the world's largest super-volcano set to erupt for the first time in 600,000 years, wiping out two-thirds of the U.S.? - The UK DAILY MAIL
"...This is the nightmare that scientists are predicting could happen if the world’s largest super-volcano erupts for the first time in 600,000 years, as it could do in the near future.
Yellowstone National Park’s caldera has erupted three times in the last 2.1million years and researchers monitoring it say we could be in for another eruption.
They said that the super-volcano underneath the Wyoming park has been rising at a record rate since 2004 - its floor has gone up three inches per year for the last three years alone, the fastest rate since records began in 1923."

Recent record-setting cold weather across the globe may very well confirm this report from the Italian National Institute Nuclear Physics and The Colorado Center for Astrodynamic Research back in July 2010:
From The UK's Weather Online:
Some 11,000 years ago the NADW shut down in response to subtle shifts in global climate. This slowed and diverted the course of the Gulf Stream to such an extent that the regional climate of the Northeast Atlantic became considerably cooler. As a result Northwestern Europe dropped back to ice age conditions within tens of years. It is now suspected that global warming may trigger a shutdown in the NADW, and a slowing or diversion of the Gulf Stream, which would ironically lead to colder climates throughout the UK and Northwest Europe.
Editor's note: Global warming causing global cooling? The hockey stick data was proven to be manipulated junk science. The Gulf Oil Disaster is contributing to the earth changes as well as volcanic eruptions, the earth's weakening magnetic field and solar flare activity.

PA chief negotiator says in interview that there is no partner in Israel; "Abbas is not threatening an intifada. We want negotiations."
Palestinian Authority chief negotiator Saeb Erekat on Sunday confirmed his instance that a Palestinian state will be created soon. "A Palestinian state is coming, with 1967 borders and with a capital in east Jerusalem, and Israel cannot stop it anymore," he said during an interview with Army Radio.
"The prime minister told us we should not wait for the next government. However we are not waiting for it, we are waiting for you," Erekat said referring to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.
(AP) ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - When two wounded law officers were rushed from the scene of a deadly shooting Monday morning on Florida's Gulf Coast, someone handed St. Petersburg Police Chief Chuck Harmon a ring, two bracelets and a badge.
They belonged to Sgt. Thomas Baitinger and Officer Jeffrey Yaslowitz, who died from the wounds they sustained helping to serve a warrant on a man with a long criminal history.
"I'm having a hard time letting go of them," said Harmon, whose hands shook as he held the dead officers' mementos.
These were the latest police killings in a month that already proved fatal for 14 law officers across the nation. In just a 24-hour period between Sunday and Monday, 11 officers were shot in five states, according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.
THE DAILY RECKONING
A story I’ve been warning about for years is making sensational headlines right now.
It’s a story most people don’t realize could make a huge impact on all of our portfolios in a number of ways.
“US Crop Stock Forecasts Deepen Fears of Food Crisis” read a recent Financial Times headline. The US government cut its estimate for key crops. This came only a week after the UN warned the world faces “food price shock.” Corn and soybean prices jumped and now sit at 30-month highs. Inventories are very tight. Corn is up 94% since June!
And the world worries about a repeat of 2008, when food riots erupted in poor countries around the world.
This has been in the works for a long time. It was there for all to see. The ratio of arable land to people has been falling for decades. Gains in crop yields have slowed. Population has expanded and income levels have grown. Diets have shifted. More people are eating more meat, which is much more grain-intensive to produce.
Will the Earth have two suns in 2012? One scientist thinks so - MNDAILY.com
A physicist from the University of Southern Queensland believes the Earth will experience multiple days of constant daylight due to a dying star — even as soon as 2012.
Is this a sign of the apocalypse?
No, says University of Minnesota physics professor Priscilla Cushman.
According to physicist Brad Carter from Australia, the second biggest star in the universe, Betelgeuse, is losing mass, indicating a supernova, or explosion of the star.
“It goes bang, it explodes, it lights up," Carter explained to news.com.au. "We'll have incredible brightness for a brief period of time for a couple of weeks and then over the coming months it begins to fade and then eventually it will be very hard to see at all.”
Nine months after the Gulf oil spill and the effects of exposure in Gulf residents is starting to show up in people's blood. The Institute for Southern Studies reports that the Louisiana Environmental Action Network has collected blood samples from 12 people between the ages of 10 and 66, finding that four of them had unusually high levels of benzene.
Among the individuals tested were cleanup workers, crabbers and people living along the coast. Among those with elevated benzene levels were three adults and one ten year old child, all were crabbers. The 10 year old is now suffering severe respiratory problems as a result of chemical exposure.

Commentary & Analysis by L. A. Marzulli
The Great Deception is coming. Bet on it. I’ don’t know when it will hit like a firestorm, but when it does it will cause the great falling away, the apostasia - apostasy – that we are warned will come in the last days.
Over the weekend the astronomer to the Pope announced that, he would love to baptize ET. Here’s the link to the article:
The Great Deception is coming and it links up with the unlikely bedfellows of Darwinism and the Vatican. You see ET is the missing link for Darwinism as it solves where life originated from! According to Monsiegnior Funes, a Vatican spokesperson who went on the record last year saying, ET should be regarded as our brother. Now the Pope’s chief astronomer tells us that ET would have a soul and that if asked he would baptize one.
The Great Deception is on it way as last night the pilot for the TV show, The Event aired on NBC. I believe this show deals with ET and how the government has covered up their existence for decades. According to what I’ve read about the show. a new president wants to reveal to the public that ET is real. Of course the bad guys in the government want to keep everything under wraps and this results in a struggle.
At the end of the pilot, a plane, which is on a suicide mission and about to crash into the Presidents motorcade, suddenly vanishes in thin air! You see ET is here to help! They created us, genetically manipulated early man, created the world’s civilizations and now are back at this critical juncture in human history to usher mankind into a new world order of peace, enlightenment and prosperity!
We are warned by Yashua/Jesus, that even the elect would be deceived if that were possible. I consider this a sobering and dire warning that what is coming is off the hook!
We must realize that the Fallen One has had millenia to construct his program of deception. He knows that his time grows short and yet he believes that he can defeat the Most High God. (I cover this in my upcoming book, The Cosmic Chess Match) He is going to pull out all the stops when he manifests in full. Remember we are warned that,
Men will faint from fear from what is coming on the earth.
That unless those days were shortened no flesh would survive.
Woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because Satan has been cast down and he knows his time is short.
I believe that we are on the doorstep to the last days. There are those who will disagree and that’s fine. I really am not interested in debating it, as it goes nowhere. However, from my perspective, the signs are here. The writing is on the wall, for those who have eyes to see. As I have stated before, is it business as usual or something more? The Great Deception is coming and it will shake many and it will cause many to fall away and believe the lie….
Make sure you check out the link below about the earthquakes.
The fissures began appearing years ago. But in recent months, seismic activity has accelerated in northeastern Africa as the continent breaks apart in slow motion. Researchers say that lava in the region is consistent with magma normally seen on the sea floor -- and that water will ultimately cover the desert.
...The earth is in upheaval in northeastern Africa, and the region is changing quickly. The desert floor is quaking and splitting open, volcanoes are boiling over, and seawaters are encroaching upon the land. Africa, researchers are certain, is splitting apart at a rate rarely seen in geology.
THE HUFFINGTON POST
In the latest of a string of mass animal deaths, 10,000 cows and buffalo have died in Vietnam.
Vietnam's Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development confirmed the news this week that more than 10,000 cows and buffalos died nationwide due to harsh weather conditions.
Cattle have been dying throughout Vietnam, which has had a particularly intense winter. The northern mountainous province of Cao Bang was hardest hit with 2,260 dead cattle, per Thanh Nien News. Some have said the number of total dead cattle may be as high as 13,000.

Travelers from other planets ... or from hell?
From Jim Fletcher at World Net Daily:
Tom and Nita Horn have spent years researching how technology is being used by powerful forces to alter our world. Already we see television programs like "Being Human" (in which young people are vampires, werewolves and ghosts) and supernatural elements have been a focus of film for decades. I cite these examples in an attempt to help you see that "Forbidden Gates" should be given a wide hearing, since while its critics would say it strains credibility … their own worldviews are at least as fantastic.
In any event, "Forbidden Gates" is one of the most challenging, engrossing books I've read in some time. I happen to think the authors are on to something.
The Bible describes early on a world so corrupt, God decided to virtually remake it. We learn of beings so evil, they had to be destroyed. Could we be seeing a repeat in our day?
...A side note: The authors of this book, Tom and Nita Horn, are cutting-edge publishers, who have purposed to serve as whistleblowers regarding certain subjects. Only days ago, their home burned to the ground, and Tom lost valuable research materials.

Dr. Paul Elliott's "Truth Above All" series from Colossians chapter two at Teaching The Word Ministries:
"...The evidence is all around us that the battle front has broken down. Many, many preachers in many, many Evangelical pulpits are not proclaiming these truths today. They’re proclaiming counterfeits. The world has come into many churches and taken over. The church is in disarray, not in battle array. And the enemy has rushed in.
Worldly philosophies are gripping the church and carrying it away from the truth. How else can you explain the fact that nearly 40% of Evangelical church members no longer believe the Bible is inerrant? How else can you explain the fact that nearly half of Evangelical church members no longer believe that Jesus Christ is a sinless Savior? How else can you explain the fact that nearly 60% of Evangelical church members no longer believe that Jesus Christ is the only Way to eternal life?
Legalism is gripping the church and carrying it away from the truth. How else can you explain the fact that nearly 60% of Evangelical church members believe that good works gain eternal life?
Man-made teachings are gripping the church and carrying it away from the truth. How else can you explain the fact that so many churches are mingling New Age teachings and psychology with Christianity? How else can you explain the success of the Purpose-Driven Church movement in leading people away from the truth?

Apprising Ministry shares an eyewitness report from Saddleback's New Age Fitness program...
It shouldn’t surprise us that Pastor Rick Warren would allow a seminar of this nature at Saddleback, after all, he himself has “GONE GREEN.”  He is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.  This illustrates the natural progression of one being unequally yoked with non-believers & buying into heresies such as ”Kingdom Now,” “Dominionism,” or ”Restoration Theology.” Where these heresies reign, as they do at Saddleback, you will find that the focus subtly shifts from salvation in Christ alone, through faith alone, to misguided efforts to restore mankind & the earth through “community” works, sustainable living, and social justice. How convenient that these just happen to be the vehicles which the United Nations is using to further it’s own agenda to restructure society & unite the world under its governing body of global elites.

Animapocalypse Continues with Squid and Octopus Die Offs - Hispanically Speaking News
Thousands of octopi have washed ashore in a 5 mile stretch of beaches in northern Portugal.
The causes of this environmental disaster are not yet known.
In addition, the remains of a massive 20ft. octopus washed ashore in Bahamas on January 19. Scientists have not linked his death to the ones in Portugal, but have said that if any more octopi are found, they will test their remains for the cause.
Small animals all over the world have been dying in mass. Birds and fish have been documented to have died by the hundreds at the time. Brazil reported over two million fish washing ashore in one coastal city at the time.
No link between the episodes has been established, as they have happened within thousands of miles of each other, and in random locations spread through every continent, with several events in the U.S, Sweden, Colombia, Brazil and New Zealand.

Lighthouse Trails Research: Emanuel Swedenborg’s Occultic Beliefs Influence Rick Warren’s Health Advisor and Now the Christian Church by John Lanagan, My Word Like Fire Ministries
“You can become a Reiki master in three weekends.” –Lisa Oz, wife of Dr. Mehmet Oz
Perhaps it is not surprising Dr. Mehmet Oz, a key teacher in Rick Warren’s 52 week health-and-wellness Daniel Plan, has been influenced by occultist Emanuel Swedenborg. Although Swedenborg rejected the biblical Christ, and communed with familiar spirits, some of Swedenborg’s admirers have been culturally significant figures. At this point in his career, Dr. Mehmet Oz certainly qualifies as such.
...This is the Eastern meditation advocated by Rick Warren’s Daniel Planteam members Dr. Mehmet Oz, Dr. Mark Hyman, and Dr. Daniel Amen. This meditation, used by Swedenborg and others, involves stilling the mind, sometimes by focusing on a word or phrase to “the exclusion of all else,” as Van Dusen puts it. By repeating the word or phrase over and over, a state of altered consciousness is reached. This is known as the silence. Historically, around the world, much has been experienced in this meditative silence. Spirit guides. Oneness. False “christs.” “Kundalini effect” . . . and so forth.
This is also often portrayed in scientific terms, and portrayed as beneficial, but is an invitation to the spirit realm. As others have pointed out, when the mind is stilled and void, something else may well fill that void.
There is a battle going on—between those who hold to the Word of God and those who promote the mysticism inherent in these meditative techniques. Already the Body of Christ is infected with the “contemplative spirituality” of Richard Foster, Dallas Willard, Gary Thomas, Keri Wyatt Kent and so many others. Contemplative prayer is simply saying a “Christian-ized” word or phrase to still the mind and enter the silence. It is virtually the same as Eastern or New Age meditation, yet it has gained acceptance due to its “Christianese” disguise.

Some places saw the ground rise by ten inches, experts report.
Brian Handwerk for National Geographic News
Yellowstone National Park's supervolcano just took a deep "breath," causing miles of ground to rise dramatically, scientists report.
The simmering volcano has produced major eruptions—each a thousand times more powerful than Mount St. Helens's 1980 eruption—three times in the past 2.1 million years. Yellowstone's caldera, which covers a 25- by 37-mile (40- by 60-kilometer) swath of Wyoming, is an ancient crater formed after the last big blast, some 640,000 years ago.
(See "When Yellowstone Explodes" in National Geographic magazine.)
Since then, about 30 smaller eruptions—including one as recent as 70,000 years ago—have filled the caldera with lava and ash, producing the relatively flat landscape we see today.

On the eve of a U.S. visit, Chinese President Hu Jintao made the boldest statement yet on the future of the U.S. dollar as a reserve currency, calling the current global monetary exchange system “a product of the past” while promoting his own country’s currency as a replacement.
In written answers to questions from U.S. media, Hu roundly criticized the U.S. Federal Reserve for unleashing a wave of dollars into the world, prompting sharply rising inflation in places like China and India.
He also rejected the common U.S. complaint that China holds the value of the yuan artificially low to promote exports to support its own rise.
He called on changes to the currency reserve system in place today "to fully reflect the changing status of developing countries in the world economy and finance," reported The Wall Street Journal.

ISLAMABAD (AP) — A major 7.2 magnitude earthquake rocked a remote area of southwestern Pakistan early Wednesday, shaking many parts of the country and causing tremors as far away as India and the United Arab Emirates.
The quake was centered in Baluchistan province, the country's most sparsely populated area, said the United States Geological Service, occurring at 1:30 a.m. local time at a depth of some 50 miles (84 kilometers.
Its epicenter was in a remote area some 200 miles (320 kilometers) southwest of the Baluchistan capital of Quetta, said chief Pakistani meteorologist Arif Mahmood, not far from the Afghan border.
The closest town to the epicenter was Dalbandin, with a population around 15,000 people, and is so remote that the nearby Chagai hills were the site of Pakistan's 1998 nuclear tests.
WISCONSIN RAPIDS TRIBUNE
TOWN OF STOCKTON -- The Portage County Humane Society is trying to figure out what caused 200 cows in the town of Stockton to die.
According to a Portage County Sheriff's Department news release, deputies were dispatched to the town just after 1 p.m. Friday after they were notified of numerous dead cows lying in a field in the 8000 block of Fourth Avenue.
The owner of the cattle allegedly told deputies that he had been working with a local veterinarian and suspected that the animals died from the either the IBR or BVD virus.
According to Cattletoday.info, IBR -- infectious bovine rhinotracheitis, or red nose -- is an acute, contagious virus that usually occurs in the air passages of a cow's head or its windpipe.
Cattle of all ages that have not been vaccinated or have not recovered from the disease are susceptible to IBR, the website states

...As the Lebanese crisis raced towards it climax, President Barack Obama, Saudi King Abdullah, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri held intense consultations in Washington and New York on a united front against Iran-backed disruptions in Beirut by Hizballah and its allies.
Iran's supreme ruler Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has said repeatedly that the STL and its rulings are "null and void" because they serve "foreign interests."
As the US, France and Israel made military and diplomatic preparations to thwart a clash, Obama scheduled a meeting with the Lebanese Prime Minister for Wednesday night, Jan. 12, to decide how the US, France and its allies would act in a conflagration.
Over the weekend, the US president ordered US vessels to buttress the Sixth Fleet stationed in the eastern Mediterranean with the USS Enterprise carrier and its strike group with 6,000 sailors and marines aboard and 80 fighter-bombers. Already deployed there is the USS Bainbridge missile destroyer.
On Monday, Jan. 10, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, on a tour of the Persian Gulf, expressed concern over the situation in Lebanon. Clinton said: "I'm deeply worried about the efforts to destabilize Lebanon. We should do everything we can to make sure those warnings are not accurate."
American military moves in the Mediterranean are intended to signal to Tehran and Hizballah that Washington will be prepared to use force to defend the Saad Hariri government in Lebanon and if necessary deploy aerial forces and the marines to avert a Hizballah takeover in Beirut. The French fleet was also ordered to bolster its naval strength opposite Lebanon.
But Hizballah got its move in first. Its resignation from the Hariri government showed that its leaders and Iranian sponsors were not fazed by the US-French military moves off the Lebanese coast and were moving ahead with their plans.
See how the recent natural gas reserve discovery in the eastern Mediterranean could also impact the region- ‘Towards an Israeli-Turkish War’.

Pope Benedict XVI has said the beatification of his late predecessor, John Paul II, can go ahead.
The globe-trotting Pope credited with contributing to the fall of communism in Eastern Europe is to be blessed in St Peter's Square on Sunday 1 May.
...It has almost become a tradition in the Roman Catholic Church to beatify and then to canonise outstanding Popes of the past. Beatification, or declaring a person "blessed", is the necessary prelude to full sainthood.
...Vatican experts, including Pope Benedict's own personal physician, have also examined the medical evidence for an allegedly miraculous cure - that of a 49-year-old French nun, Sister Marie Simon-Pierre Normand, in 2005 from Parkinson's Disease, the same malady which afflicted Pope John Paul II in his later years.
Sister Marie claims that she and her fellow nuns prayed for the intercession of Pope John Paul II after his death. Her sudden cure had no logical medical explanation and she later resumed her work as a maternity nurse, the Vatican says.
Editor's note: More than 4 million people are expected to flood Rome for this event. Given the rise in attacks against "Christians" abroad, grave concerns no doubt will be raised concerning an attack during this ceremony.
One can only imagine the outcry for global religious tolerance and interfaith unity if such an attack were to occur. Nonconforming individuals would quickly seen to be the enemies of global peace and unity.

Virginia Offers HR 577 and Alternative Currency to Protect Itself from “Likely” Federal Reserve Meltdown
Virginia Offers HR 577 and Alternative Currency to Protect Itself from “Likely” Federal Reserve Meltdown
Virginia has started a process in which it will try and shield itself and it’s citizens from the likely fallout resulting from the implosion of the Federal Reserve’s banking system (and our way of life as we know it). Several other states have been offering bills that tackle the same subject but in different ways. Idaho State Representative Phil Hart authored the Idaho State Silver Gem Act earlier this year which allows for the Idaho State Treasurer to issue silver medallions and make them available to the public; people may use them for any purpose they want and will have the option of paying their State taxes with the silver. Sadly, it was defeated 51-14, but Hart said he will try again in the next legislative session if he is re-elected.
America’s monetary system is based on fiat money, it has no intrinsic value and it is not asset-backed. Federal Reserve notes have value because of government regulations (the Legal Tender laws) that mandate their use under the threat of fine or imprisonment. The Legal Tender laws require people and businesses to accept Federal Reserve notes for payment, if Federal Reserve notes are offered as payment. However, people, businesses and even governments can also accept payment in the form of gold, silver or any other thing of value – they are not tied to accepting only Federal Reserve notes.

Earth's magnetic pole shift unleashing poisonous space clouds linked to mysterious bird deaths-NATURAL NEWS
Following the unexplained deaths of several thousand birds over the last two weeks, events are now emerging that may offer a physics-based explanation for the mysterious deaths. It all begins on a runway in Tampa, where airport officials recently closed that runway in order to change the numeric designators painted there. Why are those numeric designators being changed? Because the Earth's magnetic poles are shifting and the numbers previously painted on the runway no longer match up with the magnetic measurements of sensitive airplane instruments...
Last week, a report from the Russia's Ministry for Extraordinary Situations (MCHS) warned that the weakening Earth magnetosphere was allowing "poisonous space clouds" to enter deep into Earth's atmosphere where it is coming into contact with birds.
...The working theory in all this, at least for the birds, is that deadly space clouds are reaching into the lower atmosphere and killing these birds in flight, after which the birds fall to the ground. The reports of the birds experiencing "blunt trauma" are likely from the birds hitting the ground.

Sicily's Mount Etna erupts - THE TELEGRAPH
Sicily's Mount Etna, Europe's largest active volcano erupted on Wednesday evening, spewing out ash and lava and forcing two airports in Catania to temporarily close.
Etna, which is almost 11,000ft high, sits 18 miles from Catania on Sicily's east coast.
According to the ANSA new agency, flames went hundreds of metres into the air and could be seen from the nearby towns of Catania and Taormina.
Airport officials closed Catania's airport on Wednesday evening.
Etna is in an almost constant state of activity, but is not considered particularly dangerous and its slopes are home to farms and vineyards that make use of the rich volcanic soil.
A 7.3 magnitude earthquake struck off the New Caledonia islands in the southern Pacific, the U.S. Geological Survey said on Thursday.
The quake, which struck at 3:16 a.m. on Friday (1615 GMT on Thursday), was very shallow at 4.5 miles and was located in the water, 77 miles northeast of Tadine in the Loyalty Islands.
The Pacific Tsunami warning Center said the quake had not triggered a widespread tsunami but could cause a local one.

Rising food inflation sparked violence across the Middle East and South Asia over the weekend, as demonstrators protested the high cost of staple commodities like sugar, rice and milk.
The outbursts ignited fears that the world is due for a repeat of the 2008 food protests that rocked countries as far apart as Haiti, Senegal and Bangladesh.
Food prices are now at an all time high, and are trending higher, indicating that this may be only the beginning of the food riot problem.
The coming hunger: Record food prices put world 'in danger', says UN
Perfect storm of climate and oil puts world into 'danger territory'
THE INDEPENDENT - UK
Food riots, geopolitical tensions, global inflation and increasing hunger among the planet's poorest people are the likely effects of a new surge in world food prices, which have hit an all-time high according to the United Nations.
The UN's index of food prices – an international basket comprising wheat, corn, dairy produce, meat and sugar – stands at its highest since the index started in 1990, surpassing even the peaks seen during the 2008 food crisis, which prompted civil disturbances from Mexico to Indonesia.
"We are entering danger territory," said the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation's chief economist, Abdolreza Abbassian.

THE HUFFINGTON POST
Over 100 birds were found dead along a California highway this past weekend, and thousands of dead fish were reported along Chicago's lakefront prior to that. A smaller incident of around 30 dead birds was also reported in Missouri.
According to the AP, the dead birds found along Highway 101 in California "were intact and had not been shot." Thousands of gizzard shad, a member of the herring family, were found dead in Chicago's harbors, many floating in ice, The Sun-Time reports. Even more abnormal, according to wildlife experts, was the sight of Canada geese and mallards munching on the dead fish, something not ordinarily a part of their diet.
California and Illinois join countless other states that have seen mass animal deaths in the past weeks. Thousands of dead birds and fish were reported in Arkansas within 100 miles of each other, and then days later hundreds more dead birds turned up 300 miles away in Louisiana. Reports of similar incidents continued, with dead birds turning up Kentucky and millions of dead fish appearing in Maryland's Chesapeake Bay.
The incidents haven't been isolated to the U.S., as hundreds of dead birds were discovered in Italy, and dozens of birds fell from the sky in Sweden. Massive fish kills were reported in Brazil and New Zealand, while England experienced an estimated 40,000 dead crabs washing onto its beaches.

The Earth's magnetic north pole is slowly heading toward Russia, according to scientists, but one of the places being affected by this is Tampa International Airport.
Airport officials closed its main runway this week until Jan. 13 to adjust the taxiway signs accounting for the magnetic pole shift, Tampa Bay Online reports.
The runway designation change was called for by the Federal Aviation Administration to reflect a previous National Geographic News report which indicated that the magnetic pole was heading in Russia's direction at almost 40 miles a year.
Fire Inspector says, "This was designed for a perfect burn down."

4 How long will the land mourn and the grass of every field wither? For the evil of those who dwell in it the beasts and the birds are swept away, because they said, "He will not see our latter end."
1 Hear the word of the LORD, O children of Israel, for the LORD has a controversy with the inhabitants of the land. There is no faithfulness or steadfast love, and no knowledge of God in the land; 2 there is swearing, lying, murder, stealing, and committing adultery; they break all bounds, and bloodshed follows bloodshed. 3 Therefore the land mourns, and all who dwell in it languish, and also the beasts of the field and the birds of the heavens, and even the fish of the sea are taken away.
3 As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the close of the age?" 4 And Jesus answered them, "See that no one leads you astray. 5 For many will come in my name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and they will lead many astray. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are but the beginning of the birth pains.
...19 For in those days there will be such tribulation as has not been from the beginning of the creation that God created until now, and never will be. 20 And if the Lord had not cut short the days, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect, whom he chose, he shortened the days. 21 And then if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!' or 'Look, there he is!' do not believe it. 22 For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform signs and wonders, to lead astray, if possible, the elect. 23 But be on guard; I have told you all things beforehand.
1 Thessalonians 5
1 Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need to have anything written to you. 2 For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3While people are saying, "There is peace and security," then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.
The birth pains are increasing... Brace Yourself For Tribulation.

'Very large' fish kill reported in bay - BALTIMORE SUN
Cold believed cause for 2 million dead spot, croakers
State officials say they are investigating a "very large" fish kill in the Chesapeake Bay, but suspect cold temperatures killed them, rather than any water-quality problems.
An estimated 2 million fish have been reported dead from the Bay Bridge south to Tangier Sound, according to the Maryland Department of the Environment, which investigates fish kills. The dead fish are primarily adult spot, with some juvenile croakers.
Agency spokeswoman Dawn Stoltzfus said bay water quality appears acceptable, and biologists believe "cold-water stress" the likely cause of the fish kill. Spot are susceptible to colder water, she said, and normally leave the upper bay by now. Water temperatures plummeted in late December to near-record lows for that time of year, about 36 degrees. The average air temperature last month was 32.4 degrees, 4.3 degrees below normal, and reached 16 degrees at its lowest, according to the National Weather Service.
Illnesses Linked to BP oil disaster -ALJAZEERA.NET
Doctor attributes widespread sickness to toxic chemicals from the Gulf of Mexico catastrophe.
Despite BP having capped its well in the Gulf of Mexico in July, the health-related after-effects of the disaster subsist.
Gulf Coast residents and BP cleanup workers have linked the source of certain illnesses to chemicals present in BP's oil and the toxic dispersants used to sink it - illnesses that appear to be both spreading and worsening.
Dr. Rodney Soto, a medical doctor in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, has been testing and treating patients with high levels of oil-related chemicals in their blood stream. These are commonly referred to as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's). Anthropogenic VOC's from BP's oil disaster are toxic and have negative chronic health effects.
Dr. Soto is finding disconcertingly consistent and high levels of toxic chemicals in every one of the patients he is testing.
"I'm regularly finding between five and seven VOCs in my patients," Dr. Soto told Al Jazeera. "These patients include people not directly involved in the oil clean-up, as well as residents that do not live right on the coast. These are clearly related to the oil disaster."
"...It's criminal for the government to tell people to eat the contaminated seafood, and that it's alright for people go to our toxic beaches and swim in the contaminated water," Dr. Soto concluded, "This crisis has to be taken seriously by the government and health care community."

Bees in freefall as study shows sharp US decline- Guardian.co.uk
The abundance of four common species of bumblebee in the US has dropped by 96% in just the past few decades, according to the most comprehensive national census of the insects. Scientists said the alarming decline, which could have devastating implications for the pollination of both wild and farmed plants, was likely to be a result of disease and low genetic diversity in bee populations.
Bumblebees are important pollinators of wild plants and agricultural crops around the world including tomatoes and berries thanks to their large body size, long tongues, and high-frequency buzzing, which helps release pollen from flowers.

Dead birds mysteriously appear in Kentucky - FOX41
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB Fox 41) -- A Paducah television news station is reporting that a Gilbertsville, Ky. woman has found dozens of dead birds in her front yard -- and Fox 41 News has learned that more birds have been found near Murray State University.
It's a story that sounds eerily similar to an event that took place in Arkansas over the weekend. Residents there have found 3,000 dead blackbirds on the ground, starting last Friday. Biologists have developed several theories on the cause of the deaths, but have been at a loss to determine a solid conclusion.

Pope Focuses on Christian Persecution for 2011 World Day of Prayer - The Christian Post
In a New Year’s day address, Pope Benedict XVI called for an interfaith meeting to urge for peace and an end to religious violence.
Speaking from St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City, Pope Benedict announced plans to hold an October summit similar to that of his predecessor, the late Pope John Paul. He said the purpose of the conference would be to “solemnly renew the effort of those with faith of all religions to live their faith as a service for the cause of peace.”
...The October 2011 meeting will mark the 25th anniversary of the 1986 World Day of Prayer for Peace in Assisi. Held by Pope John Paul, the meeting focused on the need for peace in the wake of the Cold War.
The meeting drew as many as 160 religious leaders from groups such the Baptist World Alliance, Lutheran World Federation, Disciples of Christ and Anglican Communion. Participants stood together with leaders of faith groups such as the Dalai Lama to proclaim that peace was both necessary and attainable.
This sequel to The End Times Passover (Why Christians Will Suffer Great Tribulation) biblically proves why God's true disciples will experience great tribulation, and will have to remain on earth awaiting the return of Jesus Christ. Most evangelical Christians believe in The Rapture - a unique event where they believe Jesus Christ will return to earth and snatch them secretly up to heaven while all hell breaks loose on earth - but what would happen if there wasn't going to be a Rapture? Are they prepared to experience great tribulation?

500 birds found dead in Louisiana
LABARRE, La. (AP) - State biologists are trying to determine what killed an estimated 500 birds that littered a quarter-mile stretch of highway in Point Coupee Parish.
The birds included red-winged blackbirds and starlings.
Monday's discovery along Louisiana Highway 1 came just three days after more than 3,000 blackbirds fell from the sky in Beebe, Ark. Authorities say examinations showed those birds suffered internal injuries that formed deadly blood clots.
Louisiana state biologists are sending some of the birds found at Labarre to laboratories in Georgia and Wisconsin for testing.
