Sat Jan 11th Todays News

What aren't the Australian press saying. The age criticised the Australian Government for denying the visa of a disfigured woman who had been offered free medical care in Australia. The government changed the decision. Only, it was the previous government that had made the decision to bar entry to the woman. The Age had reported the criticism and attributed it to the conservative government. Selectiveness in reporting is undemocratic and weakens the ability of a democratic nation to make free, informed decisions. In France, Hollande is accused of having an affair and he is upset it is reported. In his defence, she is acknowledged as being pretty and his doormat of a wife doesn't seem concerned. French people can still glory in their leader being an economic champion. 
But the disturbing question has to be asked, what is not reported in Australia?A mother and daughter die in Bali and the family demand a Queensland coroner examine the bodies. A school child dies in NSW at a school outing in 2002, and a public servant with relevant information gets silenced. The difference is ALP. The press will not criticise an ALP government if it can avoid it. And they are willing to lie to do it.

LEADERSHIP POSITION

Tim Blair – Saturday, January 11, 2014 (3:57pm)

Less than one year ago, Tim Flannery told a typically docile ABC interviewer about China’s great coal rejection: 
China was building a coal fire power plant every week or two. That’s now stopped. What we’re now seeing is a coal cap in place, so China has capped the amount of coal that they’re going to be burning, pretty close to current levels and instead are expanding renewables very quickly … they really are taking a leadership position. 
Australians used to pay Flannery $180,000 per year for these brilliant insights. As it turns out, China is showing leadership, but not in the direction Flannery claimed
China approved the construction of more than 100 million tonnes of new coal production capacity in 2013 – six times more than a year earlier and equal to 10 percent of U.S. annual usage – flying in the face of plans to tackle choking air pollution.
The scale of the increase, which only includes major mines, reflects Beijing’s aim to put 860 million tonnes of new coal production capacity into operation over the five years to 2015, more than the entire annual output of India …
Chinese coal production of 3.66 billion tonnes at the end of 2012 already accounts for nearly half the global total, according to official data. The figure dwarves production rates of just over 1 billion tonnes each in Europe and the United States. 
And what happened to those darling renewables? Senior commodities analyst Helen Lau explains: 
“The replacement of coal hasn’t been as fast as expected, and other sources of energy are not only expensive but also face a lot of technical and environmental problems,” said UOB’s Lau. 
As Brad Pitt recently discovered, everything green is invariably worse. It’s a quality of life issue. Meanwhile, check recent trends in Germany.

On a Northwest Airways flight from Atlanta, a well attired middle-aged woman found herself sitting next to a man wearing a kippa ('yarmulka' in Yiddish).

She called the attendant over to complain about her seating.

'What seems to be the problem, Madam?' asked the attendant.

'You've sat me next to a Jew!! I can't possibly sit next to this strange man. Please find me another seat!'

'Madam, I will see what I can do to accommodate,' the attendant replied, 'but the flight is virtually full today and I don't know if there is another seat available.'

The woman shoots a snooty look at the snubbed Jewish man beside her (not to mention the surrounding passengers).

A few minutes later the attendant returned and said, 'Madam, the economy and club sections are full, however, we do have one seat in First Class.'

Before the lady had a chance to respond, the attendant continued, 'It is only on exceptions that we make this kind of upgrade, and I had to ask permission from the captain. But, given the circumstances, the captain felt that no one should be forced to sit next to an unpleasant person...'

The flight attendant turned to the Jewish man sitting next to her, and said: 'So if you'd like to get your things, sir, I have a comfortable seat for you in First Class...'

At this point, the surrounding passengers stood up and gave a standing ovation while the Jewish man walked up to the front of the plane.

The lady then said indignantly, 'The Captain must have made a mistake..'

To which the attendant replied, 'No Ma'am. Captain Lipschitz never makes a mistake.'

“Kultur kostet Geld. Sie kostet Geld vor allem auch deshalb, weil der Zugang zu ihr nicht in erster Linie durch einen privat gefüllten Geldbeutel bestimmt sein darf. Vor ein paar Jahren, eben hier in Berlin, habe ich bei einer Ansprache vor dem Deutschen Bühnenverein ausgeführt, dass Kultur nicht etwas sein darf, was die öffentlichen Hände nach Belieben betreiben oder auch lassen dürfen. Substanziell hat die Förderung von Kulturellem nicht weniger eine Pflichtaufgabe der öffentlichen Haushalte zu sein als zum Beispiel der Straßenbau, die öffentliche Sicherheit oder die Finanzierung der Gehälter im öffentlichen Dienst. Es ist grotesk, dass wir Ausgaben im kulturellen Bereich zumeist “Subventionen” nennen, während kein Mensch auf die Idee käme, die Ausgaben für ein Bahnhofsgebäude oder einen Spielplatz als Subventionen zu bezeichnen. Der Ausdruck lenkt uns in die falsche Richtung. Denn Kultur ist kein Luxus, den wir uns leisten oder auch streichen können, sondern der geistige Boden, der unsere eigentliche innere Überlebensfähigkeit sichert.
Und Kultur hängt auch von Personen ab, die sie ins Werk setzen sollen. Es ist ein zentrales öffentliches Interesse, dass Leute, die das können und die schon in Berlin leben, die notwendigen Entfaltungsmöglichkeiten behalten oder bekommen. Und darüber hinaus auch, dass in möglichst großer Dichte und Qualität solche Menschen für Berlin gewonnen werden, wenn sie bereit sind, sich zu engagieren, damit sie hier ihre Kreativität und ihre Kenntnisse wie ihre Weltläufigkeit in den Dienst der Kultur der Stadt und des ganzen Landes stellen.” (Richard von Weizsäcker 1991)
The belt tightening hurts the poorest artists most. Those who have to work at other jobs to get the money to keep the skills of their trade. And the cost when these artists miss out is not felt immediately, but for decades after the arts community will miss leaders and shining lights. - ed

“The hero journey is one of the universal patterns through which that radiance shows brightly. What I think is that a good life is one hero journey after another. Over and over again, you are called to the realm of adventure, you are called to new horizons. Each time, there is the same problem: do I dare? And then if you do dare, the dangers are there, and the help also, and the fulfillment or the fiasco. There’s always the possibility of a fiasco.
But there’s also the possibility of bliss.”
Or you can just be an ordinary, compassionate person and do the right thing.  - ed

Written by Charles Krauthamer

Made more so when you consider the state of human rights in Israel’s neighborhood. As we speak, Syria’s government is dropping “barrel bombs” filled with nails, shrapnel and other instruments of terror on its own cities. Where is the ASA boycott of Syria?

And of Iran, which hangs political, religious and even sexual dissidents and has no academic freedom at all? Or Egypt, where Christians are being openly persecuted? Or Turkey, Saudi Arabia or, for that matter, massively repressive China and Russia?

Which makes obvious that the ASA boycott has nothing to do with human rights. It’s an exercise in radical chic, giving marginalized academics a frisson of pretend anti-colonialism, seasoned with a dose of edgy anti-Semitism.

And don’t tell me this is merely about Zionism. The ruse is transparent. Israel is the world’s only Jewish state. To apply to the state of the Jews a double standard that you apply to none other, to judge one people in a way you judge no other, to single out that one people for condemnation and isolation — is to engage in a gross act of discrimination.

And discrimination against Jews has a name. It’s called anti-Semitism.

God Gives What You Need
The Scripture says,“And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”(Philippians 4;19)
In Second Samuel Chapter 12,The prophet Nathan was correcting David. In doing so, he reminded David of what God had brought him through. David had seen God’s goodness, favor, protection, finances and healing down through the years. And in verse 8, Nathan made an interesting statement. He said, “David, if it had not been enough, God would have given you much, much more.” In other words, “David, looking back over your life, if you were ever lacking, if you ever needed more wisdom, more favor, more protection, more finances, God would have given it to you." Today, be encouraged that you have what you need, and what you need tomorrow is on its way! God is faithful and gives you what you need to fulfill His purposes.God bless you.

PRAY ALONG.
Lord help me to know You as I should.To obey You each time You speak,Lord give me joy, Your Love to see,teach me always to trust in Thee.I have not obeyed Thee as I ought Or been thankful for Your Love,Help me Lord to know You're near,Cause' one day soon I'll meet You there in Jesus Name,Amen.
=
I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD. The LORD hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me over unto death.NO matter what life may deal out to us we can stand tall knowing that God has purposed our lives and because He has spoken into our spirits, we can keep faith that His word will not return back void.God bless you.
=
Father, right now, I renounce the negative voices that have come against me and against Your Word. I choose to trust You. I choose to believe You. I choose to forgive others and believe Your Word which stands forever in Jesus’ name. Amen.
=
The word of our God will stand forever.(Isaiah 40:8)
No body can determine your destiny,only God. People can’t stop God’s plan for your life. People may not approve you. Don’t worry about it. God approves you. God called you, people didn’t call you. People don’t equip you; God equips you. People don’t anoint you; God anoints you. When you come to the end of your life, you don’t have to answer to people, you’ll answer to Almighty God.

What you have in your hand is what you need. When you dedicate it to God and do what He tells you, He’ll bless and multiply what you have and use it to take you further than you ever dreamed.God bless you.
=
The Love of God.
For I am persuaded, that neither death,nor life, nor angels, nor principalities,nor powers, nor things present,nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God,which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.Romans 8:38-39 (KJV)

Friend, 
In January, we often find ourselves reflecting on the past year as we decide how to prioritize our activities for the coming year. If you are like our family, you want to use your time efficiently to make a real, lasting difference.
Our organization is a grassroots community of Americans standing together to make a difference. Our members are moms, dads, nurses, teachers, firefighters, students, truck drivers, veterans, and grandparents. They're from every walk of life.
We're concerned about the direction of our country and frustrated because our government has gotten too big, spends too much and is no longer accountable.
We believe in freedom, opportunity, personal responsibility and American exceptionalism. We're a voice for those who often cannot fight for themselves.
We are fighting to restore the American dream.
And in our first year and a half, Patriot Voices has done a lot to make an impact!  We defeated CRPD - a dangerous United Nation's disabilities treaty, fought to protect our religious liberties being eroded by ObamaCare, stood up for moms and their unborn children, and sent thousands of emails to President Obama on behalf of Pastor Saeed Abedini, a prisoner of the Iranian government.   
And our fight continues in 2014.
We need you in this fight with us and engaged in your own community.Visit our 'Get Connected' page right now to join others in your state who are making a difference!
You may be asking, what does getting involved with Patriot Voices really mean?  What kind of a time commitment is required, and what exactly will I do?  It can mean lending your name to our petitions or being active on social media by weighing in on issues on our Facebook page and on Twitter. 
If you feel called to be involved in a bigger way, you can join our leadership team and start a chapter in your community. Many of our local leaders start out by holding an event in their home with fellow conservatives to talk about Patriot Voices. 
Or you could join us at events like the March for Life or the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), where we come together with fellow conservatives to affect change in our nation's capital.
There are a lot of ways to get involved, but first visit our Get Connected page.  After you sign up, someone from your state leadership or our staff will be in touch to help you get started.
Thank you,

Morning and Evening by Charles Spurgeon
January 10: Morning
"There is laid up for me a crown of righteousness." - 2 Timothy 4:8
Doubting one! thou hast often said, "I fear I shall never enter heaven." Fear not! all the people of God shall enter there. I love the quaint saying of a dying man, who exclaimed, "I have no fear of going home; I have sent all before me; God's finger is on the latch of my door, and I am ready for him to enter." "But," said one, "are you not afraid lest you should miss your inheritance?" "Nay," said he, "nay; there is one crown in heaven which the angel Gabriel could not wear, it will fit no head but mine. There is one throne in heaven which Paul the apostle could not fill; it was made for me, and I shall have it." O Christian, what a joyous thought! thy portion is secure; "there remaineth a rest." "But cannot I forfeit it?" No, it is entailed. If I be a child of God I shall not lose it. It is mine as securely as if I were there. Come with me, believer, and let us sit upon the top of Nebo, and view the goodly land, even Canaan. Seest thou that little river of death glistening in the sunlight, and across it dost thou see the pinnacles of the eternal city? Dost thou mark the pleasant country, and all its joyous inhabitants? Know, then, that if thou couldst fly across thou wouldst see written upon one of its many mansions, "This remaineth for such a one; preserved for him only. He shall be caught up to dwell forever with God." Poor doubting one, see the fair inheritance; it is thine. If thou believest in the Lord Jesus, if thou hast repented of sin, if thou hast been renewed in heart, thou art one of the Lord's people, and there is a place reserved for thee, a crown laid up for thee, a harp specially provided for thee. No one else shall have thy portion, it is reserved in heaven for thee, and thou shalt have it ere long, for there shall be no vacant thrones in glory when all the chosen are gathered in.
Evening
"In my flesh shall I see God." - Job 19:26
Mark the subject of Job's devout anticipation "I shall see God." He does not say, "I shall see the saints"--though doubtless that will be untold felicity--but, "I shall see God." It is not--"I shall see the pearly gates, I shall behold the walls of jasper, I shall gaze upon the crowns of gold," but "I shall see God." This is the sum and substance of heaven, this is the joyful hope of all believers. It is their delight to see him now in the ordinances by faith. They love to behold him in communion and in prayer; but there in heaven they shall have an open and unclouded vision, and thus seeing "him as he is," shall be made completely like him. Likeness to God--what can we wish for more? And a sight of God--what can we desire better? Some read the passage, "Yet, I shall see God in my flesh," and find here an allusion to Christ, as the "Word made flesh," and that glorious beholding of him which shall be the splendour of the latter days. Whether so or not it is certain that Christ shall be the object of our eternal vision; nor shall we ever want any joy beyond that of seeing him. Think not that this will be a narrow sphere for the mind to dwell in. It is but one source of delight, but that source is infinite. All his attributes shall be subjects for contemplation, and as he is infinite under each aspect, there is no fear of exhaustion. His works, his gifts, his love to us, and his glory in all his purposes, and in all his actions, these shall make a theme which will be ever new. The patriarch looked forward to this sight of God as a personal enjoyment. "Whom mine eye shall behold, and not another." Take realizing views of heaven's bliss; think what it will be to you. "Thine eyes shall see the King in his beauty." All earthly brightness fades and darkens as we gaze upon it, but here is a brightness which can never dim, a glory which can never fade--"I shall see God."

Candace
Scripture Reference: Acts 8:27
Name Meaning: Queen or Ruler of Children
The exact name of this Ethiopian queen is not given by Luke. It was the name of a dynasty, not of an individual, and was used for many years by the queens of Ethiopia, just as Pharaoh was the hereditary title given to ancient Egyptian kings and Caesar to Roman emperors. The fascinating context Luke gives us is taken up with the eunuch, a man of great authority, a potentate in his way, returning through the desert to Meroe, Ethiopia, interested in Old Testament Scripture. Philip the Evangelist found him sitting in his chariot reading Isaiah 53, and from this chapter so full of the truth of the cross, preached unto him Jesus. The eunuch was converted to God, and baptized there in the desert, and returned to his country rejoicing. Tradition has it that he witnessed to the Candace of his newly-found Saviour and that she, too, embraced the Christian faith. Such was the influence of this converted eunuch, that many souls were saved and ultimately he became bishop of the first Christian Church in Ethiopia...
