Type in a search of “ObamaCare” into Google — the world’s most popular search engine — and the results may surprise you. According to Politico’s Ben Smith, the Obama administration has purchased top billing to divert internet surfers away from antagonist websites to a new “sponsored link” — the Department of Health and Human Service’s (HHS) healthcare.gov

Adam Smith Institute: Tax and spend destroys living standards

Most market sympathisers know that lower are overall taxes, the smaller is government and the higher are living standards, but for support they concentrate on statistical evidence such as the adverse relationship between economic growth and the level of overall taxes. This evidence is very strong, but an underlying theory showing WHY this is the case would make it far stronger.

The Department Of Homeland Security is ‘teaming up’ with the EPA to combat the effects of the hoax known as global warming or (climate change depending on the weather).
Via CNSN:
At an all-day White House conference on “environmental justice,” Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced that her department is creating a new task force to battle the effects of climate change on domestic security operations.
Speaking at the first White House Forum on Environmental Justice on Thursday, Napolitano discussed the initial findings of the department’s recently created “Climate Change and Adaptation Task Force.”
Napolitano explained that the task force was charged with “identifying and assessing the impact that climate change could have on the missions and operations of the Department of Homeland Security.”

The Survival Station - Americans Will Need DHS Approval for Private Sector Jobs

http://blog.survivalstation.org/americans-will-need-dhs-approval-for-private-sector-jobs-62848.html
You’ve heard of no fly and no buy lists – get ready for no work lists. Millions of workers now must apply to the DHS and prove they are not terrorists in order to be granted permission by the government to work.
On the Alex Jones Show today, a caller pointed to information posted on a union website for ironworkers spelling out details on the Department of Homeland Security’s TWIC and SWAC programs.
Americans Will Need DHS Approval for Private Sector Jobs onepixel
Americans Will Need DHS Approval for Private Sector Jobs twic Americans Will Need DHS Approval for Private Sector Jobs onepixel
TWIC is short for Transportation Worker Identification Credential and SWAC stands for Secure Worker Access Consortium.
TWIC “is a biometric credential that ensures only vetted workers are eligible to enter a secure construction site, unescorted,” Ironworkers Local 361 in Ozone Park, New York, explains. “Before issuing a TWIC, TSA must conduct a security threat assessment on the TWIC applicant. An applicant who, as a result of the assessment, is determined to not pose a security threat, will be issued a TWIC card.”
In other words, construction workers in New York will need permission from the TSA and DHS in order to practice their profession and earn a living. It was much the same in the former Soviet Union and authoritarian states such as China where the government determines all aspects of an individual’s life and where even the mildly rebellious are severely punished.

December 13, 2010
In Iraq, a wave of attacks targeting Christians is leading to an exodus from Baghdad and other cities. Before the 2003 U.S. invasion, there were nearly 1 million Christians in the country. That number was cut in half in the past several years.
Now, with the latest violence, families are seeking refuge in northern Iraq and trying to emigrate.
The latest spate of attacks on Christians started at Our Lady of Salvation Church, a Syrian Catholic church in a mixed, middle-class neighborhood in Baghdad.
During evening mass on Oct. 31, militants climbed the walls of the church, shot scores of worshipers, took hundreds more hostage, and then detonated suicide vests when Iraqi security forces mounted a rescue attempt. In all, 58 people died.
On a recent Sunday, bullet holes and signs of a battle remain all over the church. Toward the front doors is the telltale spray of a suicide bomber: bits and pieces of hair and skin stuck to the ceiling.

Iraqi Christians inspect damage last month at the altar of Our Lady of Salvation Church, a Syrian Catholic church in central Baghdad. U.S. and Iraqi forces stormed the church on Oct. 31 to free dozens of hostages in an attack by al-Qaida gunmen.
Iraqi police recently arrested a man who they say was the mastermind behind the attack. They say he is a top leader in the local branch of al-Qaida.
Threats Escalate
Just a few days after the church siege, homemade bombs targeted houses belonging to Christian families around Baghdad.
A mother of two, who only wants to give her name as Um Milad, or "mother of Milad," says she was just starting her day when she heard the boom.
"I woke up at 6 o'clock because I had to prepare my kid for school," she says. "And as we were in the room, suddenly all the glass were shattered. 'Are we being bombed from somewhere?' "
That somewhere turned out to be inside the family's home. Militants had sneaked in and planted a bomb. The explosion set the house on fire. The family escaped from the roof.
They were so scared, they actually sought refuge inside Our Lady of Salvation Church — the church that was attacked on Oct. 31.
Christians around Baghdad have been getting threats by text messages and envelopes with bullets inside.

Somali Teenage Girl Shot to Death for Embracing Christ | Christianpost.com

"Arabic Language" in the Arabic Al-B...Image via Wikipediahttp://www.christianpost.com/article/20101204/somali-teenage-girl-shot-to-death-for-embracing-christ
NAIROBI, Kenya (CDN) - A 17-year-old girl in Somalia who converted to Christianity from Islam was shot to death last week in an apparent “honor killing,” area sources said.
Nurta Mohamed Farah, who had fled her village of Bardher, Gedo Region to Galgadud Region to live with relatives after her parents tortured her for leaving Islam, died on Nov. 25. Area sources said they strongly suspected that the two unidentified men in Galgadud Region who shot her in the chest and head with a pistol were relatives or acting on their behest.
“Reports reached the relatives in Galgadud that Nurta Farah had converted to Christianity,” one source said. “The suspicion that the family is responsible is a solid one. The sister was killed in Abudwaq, a district in Galgadud Region, and the place where the incident took place is about 200 meters from where the sister was staying with relatives.”
Relatives buried Farah, sources said. Her parents had severely beaten her for leaving Islam and regularly shackled her to a tree at their home,

Earthquake 'swarm' rattles Arkansas town and its residents - CNN.com

http://www.cnn.com/2010/US/12/13/arkansas.earthquakes/index.html?eref=mrss_igoogle_cnn
(CNN) -- The Arkansas Geological Survey is trying to unravel a mystery: What is causing earthquakes in the town of Guy, Arkansas?
Since September 20, the community of 549 residents north of Little Rock has experienced an almost constant shaking from 487 measurable earthquakes.
"We've had 15 today including a 3.1 (magnitude) from this morning," Scott Ausbrooks, geohazards supervisor for the Geological Survey, said Monday. "These are shallow quakes between two and eight kilometers (between one-and-a-quarter and five miles) below the surface."
While earthquakes aren't unusual in the Southeast state, the frequency is.
"This time last year we had 39 quakes total for the entire state," said Ausbrooks.
Most of the quakes in the swarm -- a localized surge of earthquakes with all of them about the same magnitude, according to the United States Geological Survey -- are so small they go unnoticed. The largest, a 4.0 on October 11, caused the only documented damage, cracking a window at a visitor's center to a state park.

The first global cyber war has begun, claim hackers

Get ready folks. This is not just a warning but also shows us this will be the very reason they decide to take away a very own internet among the Freedom of Speech we all have today.
Whether or not you've been keeping up with this. Now would be a good time.
If these hackers do exist, I would like to say one thing. Thanks for messing up our only choice of Freedom of speech that we have left.
On the other hand I seem to feel like this is the very warped frame of Politics to make us believe that the internet would be better controlled by Government.
Either way we look at it. Get ready. Here is the number 1 reason they will tell us that we can no longer use the Net on our own terms. Time for more people to be controlled and what we will be able to access on the internet.  Be sure to click the link for the full story here.
You'll see right away what I'm talking about.

Julian Assange
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Photograph: Lennart Preiss/AP

He is one of the newest recruits to Operation Payback. In a London bedroom, the 24-year-old computer hacker is preparing his weaponry for this week's battles in an evolving cyberwar. He is a self-styled defender of free speech, his weapon a laptop and his enemy the US corporations responsible for attacking the website WikiLeaks.
He had seen the flyers that began springing up on the web in mid-September. In chatrooms, on discussion boards and inboxes from Manchester to New York to Sydney the grinning face of a Guy Fawkes mask had appeared with a call to arms. Across the world a battalion of hackers was being summoned.
"Greetings, fellow anons," it said beneath the headline Operation Payback. Alongside were a series of software programs dubbed "our weapons of choice" and a stark message: people needed to show their "hatred".
Like most international conflicts, last week's internet war began over a relatively modest squabble, escalating in days into a global fight.
Before WikiLeaks, Operation Payback's initial target was America's recording industry, chosen for its prosecutions of music file downloaders. From those humble origins, Payback's anti-censorship, anti-copyright, freedom of speech manifesto would go viral, last week pitting an amorphous army of online hackers against the US government and some of the biggest corporations in the world.
Charles Dodd, a consultant to US government agencies on internet security, said: "[The hackers] attack from the shadows and they have no fear of retaliation. There are no rules of engagement in this kind of emerging warfare."

YouTube - End of Liberty

"World News Now"Image via WikipediaThough this Video is a bit long. I feel it's somthing that most people should know about. In Todays World News and the issues we face on a daily basis. I find more and more people that try so hard to ignore the facts. America is in debt, Inflation is on the rise. Corrupted Politians only worsen the problems. Food prices on the rise, Along with Farms and land being taken over to growing and produce organic foods. Law maker have gone out of control. Security in the Airports taking away personal rights and freedoms. The list goes on and on.
Though the end of this video talks more about investing in Silver and Gold. I have to say this may be the only area I don't quite agree with. For on main reason only.
You see weather or not you Believe in the Bible or God for that matter, All of these issue are talked about in there that is refered to the End of Days.
A Global system and Global Goverments and even Global False Peace, in which most of the entire world will begin to believe at first. There is also the mention of a Global World leader that will seem to take control of everyones lives even down to fixing the problem of a Global economy problem.
The answer to this problem is what they call The Mark. Not saying that we have this just yet. But we do have the technology that is very capable of doing everything it speaks of. Including, Nobody will be able to buy or sell ANYTHING without it.
Read it for yourself here. Revelation 13

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Revelation+13&version=KJV
13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Revelation+13&version=KJV

Now without going into a long Bible study with this. You can see more in the book of Daniel and many others with even more detailed information on this subject.

Now, for those who understand who God is and the Bible. In order for Gold and Silver to take any effect in a Digital Monetary Global System. In other words. RFID Chips and ID's. We would have to sell the Metals to add to currency on our own specialized and Biometric chips in order to actually get something to eat or buy gas.

If you think this is not possible. You may want to do a search right here on the blog and For RFID and go through them. It's World wide and all over the news today.
Or you can just click here.
http://todaysworldnewsinfo.blogspot.com/search?q=RFID+
As for the rest of this Video. Anyone that has actually Read the Bible should see the sign of every and each subject they are talking about here. Food shortages, Farm land take overs The budget of the World. Recessions, and a Global Control System happening right before our very eyes. This is no joke. You either google or do a search right here on Todays World News for each one of these and it will pull up every one of these subjects.

Part of the reason I started this page was to help people wake up. Being that we all live very busy lives. Who really has time to see all this? Maybe it's time to make the time.
What we don't know will indeed hurt us all in everyone of these cases.
Are you ready? Be sure to watch all of this. I will leave you with a verse.


http://nasb.scripturetext.com/mark/13.htm

Matthew 24

33Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. 34For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. 35Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: 36Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. 37And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

AFP: Hundreds of Iraq Christians mark church carnage

Assyrians in Iraq account for a slight majorit...Image via WikipediaBe sure to clck here for the full story.
http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5h4xvEjr4QdsP710doAiqzAo2zNiQ?docId=CNG.9c07eaad5245857f7c88d2bb772e1f0c.8d1
BAGHDAD — Hundreds of Iraqi Christians attended mass under heavy security on Friday to mark 40 days since dozens of worshippers were killed in an Al-Qaeda siege that sparked an international outcry.
Teary-eyed parishioners, diplomats, and politicians gathered in the Sayidat al-Nejat (Our Lady of Salvation) Syriac Catholic church, seated on plastic garden chairs as priests read aloud the names of the 46 people who died, recited prayers and sang hymns.
Outside, dozens of armed soldiers, policemen and private security contractors stood guard as streets were closed off to vehicle traffic, and men and women alike were frisked on entry.
The head of the Syriac Catholic Church, Ignatius Joseph III Yunan, told the congregation of his "sadness" over the "disaster," while praying for unity to return to Iraq.
"We came here in order to pray to God for Iraq to be better. God will never give up on you. God will make the sons of this country united," said the patriarch, who came from Lebanon for the ceremony.
Later, appealing to an international audience, he spoke briefly in English, before repeating his message in French and Italian: "Do not consider Iraq the land of (economic) opportunities."
"Just remember, it is a nation with living people -- they deserve life."
Several people wept as a crowd of more than 500 paid their respects inside the church, which still bears the scars of the October 31 siege.
Large posters of the two priests who were among the dead -- Father Wassim, 23, and Taher Saadallah Boutros, 32 -- adorned the entry gate to the church, and pictures of all 46 victims were put up around the building.
Bullet marks were still visible in the building's walls, and shards of wood were broken off its main entry doors, while its wood-panelled columns had multiple chunks broken off.
Outside, a handful of demonstrators held up placards that read "Stop Killing Christians" and called for the results of an investigation into the attack to be published.

 Se more photos at the link.
http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2010/12/gallery-inside-the-secret-space-plane-landing?pid=147
spaceplane1

When the Air Force launched its secret, robotic space plane this spring, military officials confessed that they weren't exactly sure when it was coming back. More than seven months later, the X-37B landed at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, where it was met with Air Force personnel in SCAPE suits (self-contained atmospheric protective ensemble). They gave the robo-orbiter an initial once-over — and made sure the area was safe for humans, too.
Here are the pictures (and infrared video) of the landing, courtesy of U.S. Air Force Space Command.
What the 29-foot-long craft did during all those months in orbit is still a matter of intense speculation. Conspiratorially minded types conjectured that it might be a prototype for an orbiting bomber. Others warned of "a johnny-on-the-spot weapons platform to take out the satellite assets of an enemy."
Prominent members of the Russian military establishment screamed that Moscow needed to build up its own space arsenal, ASAP. The British press, meanwhile, made dark insinuations about "the testing of new laser weapon systems" in space.
Better-informed observers believe the X-37B could be used by the Pentagon as a cheap replacement for the all-but-defunct Space Shuttle — a way to get spy sensors into orbit in a hurry.
And the U.S. military's use of space planes is only getting started. As David Axe noted last week, the Air Force has commissioned a second X-37, to enter service next spring. The first X-37 could find itself back in orbit in short order, as well. Which means we could see more dudes in crazy-looking suits meeting up with robotic spacecraft soon.

WikiLeaks: Syria gave Hizbullah Scud-D missiles - Worthy News

Clinton asks Arab and Western nations to help stop Syria from continuing to transfer ballistic missiles, weapons to Hizbullah.
The US lodged a complaint against Syria for providing "advanced ballistic missiles and other weaponry" to Hizbullah, shortly after Syrian President Bashar Assad denied doing so, according to documents released by WikiLeaks on Tuesday.

"We are concerned about Syria's provision of increasingly sophisticated weapons to Hizbullah," US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton wrote in a February 2010 diplomatic cable classified as "secret."

"In our meetings last week it was stated that Syria is not transferring any 'new' missiles to Lebanese Hizbullah," Clinton wrote. Assad also said that "Syria could not be Israel's policeman."

In that meeting, the US expressed concern that Hizbullah had been given Fateh-110 missiles, which can reach Tel Aviv. A US government official told The New York Times last week that these missiles are highly accurate and especially threatening.

"We are aware, however, of current Syrian efforts to supply Hizbullah with ballistic missiles," Clinton explained. These missiles include Scud-D missiles, based on North Korean technology. "I must stress that...we strongly caution [Syria] against such a serious escalation."

Muslim poll, Hamas, Hezbollah: Majority of Muslims want Islam in politics, poll says - latimes.com

Islam in New Zealand book launch, 2007Image via Wikipediahttp://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/world/la-fg-1206-muslim-poll-20101206,0,252922.story
A majority of Muslims around the world welcome a significant role for Islam in their countries' political life, according to a new poll from the Pew Research Center, but have mixed feelings toward militant religious groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah.

According to the survey, majorities in Pakistan, Egypt, Jordan and Nigeria would favor changing current laws to allow stoning as a punishment for adultery, hand amputation for theft and death for those who convert from Islam to another religion. About 85% of Pakistani Muslims said they would support a law segregating men and women in the workplace.

Muslims in Indonesia, Egypt, Nigeria and Jordan were among the most enthusiastic, with more than three-quarters of poll respondents in those countries reporting positive views of Islam's influence in politics: either that Islam had a large role in politics, and that was a good thing, or that it played a small role, and that was bad.

Commercial Spaceport to Open in New Mexico

Entrance and guard shack to Spaceport America,...Image via WikipediaI wanted to share this story here on Todays World News mostly because this is a huge deal and a major Breakthrough for America. To see them actually builiding the Space Port in New Mexico is something so many have been waiting for for decades. Be sure to check out the link here below for the full story and Videos.
http://commercialspaceport.blogspot.com
British millionaire and Virgin Galactic founder Richard Branson is one step closer to his dream of providing commercial flights into space with the construction of a spaceport in Upham, New Mexico. What is certainly the product of the commercialization of the space industry, Spaceport America is destined to become the "flagship" of other spaceports throughout the world. In fact a similar spaceport project is already underway in Singapore.

Ticket pre-sales for the pricey space flights have already reached over $45 million dollars. Each ticket, costing approximately $200,000 will take you on a sub orbital flight on the VSS Enterprise. Boasting only 6 seats, it is sure to be an adventure to brag about.


The Taxpayer funded, $198 million spaceport will take tourists on short hops into space at first, but plans are already underway for more extended flights that Branson hopes will one day include orbit flights and stays in a space hotel.


Fortunately, the design allows for "green technology" by incorporating a core design implementing renewable energy. According to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, southern New Mexico has the second highest potential for solar power in the nation. The videos at the bottom of the page contain more information on some of the methods being incorporated into planning.


In addition, cooling methods such as buried air pipes will assist traditional methods. According to the
Spaceport America
site, " By powering the nation's first purpose-built commercial spaceport, Spaceport America, with clean, abundant solar energy, the world will look to New Mexico as the leader in implementing renewable energy solutions!"

Weekly flights are set to begin in approximately April, 2012. Also on the agenda for the new spaceport are several companies who will be specializing in research and in transporting payload to space.

Extending the Bush Tax Cuts. Extending Unemployment Benefits and a payroll tax cut.
Then to top it off, If I get this right. It doesn't cost any more money to pass.

Mother sentenced to die for Blasphemy? Pakistan

Whether or not this mother did happen to say anything about a guy Mohammad or not. I seriously think people go way to far at their reasons for trying to start yet more war.

I Thank My God in Heaven for the Freedom of speech we have here in the United States. To be put to death over saying something about a dead man is beyond my way of thinking. Even though they think he was some kind of Prophet. The fact still remains.

Can you imagine if Christians put to death every person that ever talked bad about Jesus Christ? There would be nobody left on the planet.
The difference between the 2 is that Jesus is still alive and not dead. Among so much more like Jesus is about Peace, and Hope, Love. Mohammad was about war, murder and death, unless you did everything his way.

But either way. This woman and so many others out there who wish not to worship a dead man should never have to be punished like this. When is the World going to wake up to this reality and stop trying to tell us its about peace.

Yet they claim its even more reason to start WAR? See For yourself.
