Thu Jan 16th Todays News

New Zealand is beautiful. I cannot thank her enough for snowing in summer. Sydney hasn't done that for me recently. Meteorologists called some white stuff falling in Turramurra a decade ago "Soft Hail" which is apparently warmer than snow .. We need a Poley Dancer .. a dancer for money .. heat waves in Australia could be made a thing of the past with a Bradfield scheme .. Still, there is a blast of cold coming from highly paid climate scientists claiming the world is warming.
A shot is heard around the world. Rumour has it that an unidentified police source that might be from Indonesia thinks an Australian defence person has discharged a weapon without hitting their target. Further evidence, were it needed, that training has suffered under the ALP in the armed services. Become a climate champion. Change your lights to plasma TVs. Keep the oven hot. If a light is out, replace that TV set. Burn a candle or ten for Maurice Newman.

What’s hot is the alarmism back home

Andrew Bolt January 16 2014 (6:56am)

Global warming - propaganda

Back last night from New Zealand, where tour operators on the South Island were apologising for the unseasonal cold, with summer snow falling on mountains from Southland to Kaikoura. In Queenstown, though, a tourist from Chicago still gloated to me how he’d dodged the record-breaking cold gripping the US:
But back in Melbourne I am plunged back in the same global warming madness, with a local heat wave treated by warmists as a proxy for a world-wide heating. The Climate Council of professional alarmist Tim Flannery once again hypes the scare with the ABC’s help:

Heatwaves in Australia are becoming more frequent, hotter and are lasting longer, a report released today by the Climate Council says.
The interim findings of the report, Australian Heatwaves: Hotter, Longer, Earlier and More Often, come as southern Australia swelters through a heatwave.
After notching up two consecutive days over 40 degrees Celsius, Melbourne is on track to record its second-longest heatwave since records began in the 1830s… The longest heatwave in Melbourne was in 1908, when there were five consecutive days over 40C.
Decades of man-made warming and we still can’t beat a 1908 record?

Still waiting for warming - and a sorry

Andrew Bolt January 16 2014 (6:33am)

Richard Kerr in Science, flagship publication of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, talked to warmist scientists convinced global warming would resume within five years:
The blogosphere has been having a field day with global warming’s apparent decade-long stagnation…
The latest response from the climate community comes in State of the Climate… [in] the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society. Climate researcher Jeff Knight and eight colleagues at the Met Office Hadley Centre in Exeter, U.K., first establish that—at least in one leading temperature record—greenhouse warming has been stopped in its tracks for the past 10 years… But natural climate variability in the model has its limits. Pauses as long as 15 years are rare in the simulations, and “we expect that [real-world] warming will resume in the next few years,” the Hadley Centre group writes.
And that resumption could come as a bit of a jolt, says Adam Scaife of the group, as the temperature catches up with the greenhouse gases added during the pause…
Solar physicist Judith Lean of the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C., and climate modeler David Rind of GISS reached the same conclusion in a peer-reviewed 15 August paper in Geophysical Research Letters…
Researchers may differ about exactly what’s behind recent natural climate variability, but they agree that no sort of natural variability can hold off greenhouse warming much longer. “Our prediction is that if past is prologue, the solar component will turn around and lead to rapid warming in the next 5 years,” says Rind.
Climate modeler David Smith of the Hadley Centre, who was not involved in the State of the Climate analysis, says his group’s climate model forecasts—made much the way weather forecasts are made—are still calling for warming to resume in the next few years as ocean influences reverse...
Time’s up.  Kerr wrote that five years ago. And sill no warming.
What would it take for warmist scientists to admit they were wrong?
Well, more than mere evidence, suggests Maurice Newman:
The IPCC was bound to be captured by the green movement. After all, it is a political body. It is not a panel of scientists but a panel of governments driven by the UN. Its sole purpose is to assess the risks of human-induced climate change. It has spawned industries. One is scientists determined to find an anthropogenic cause. Another is climate remediation. And, naturally, an industry to redistribute taxes to sustain it all. With hundreds of billions of dollars at stake, this cartel will deny all contrary evidence. Its very survival depends on it. But the tide is turning and Mother Nature has signalled her intention not to co-operate.

NAVY ACCUSED

Tim Blair – Thursday, January 16, 2014 (2:45pm)

A totally believable claim from an impeccable source
Indonesian authorities have quoted the asylum seekers on board saying Australian navy personnel fired shots as part of the operation to turn around the boat carrying 25 people …
A local police commissioner from southern Java, who did not want his name or his district published, has told Fairfax Media that villagers plucked a number of asylum seekers from the water a week ago, on January 8, after their boat was turned back by Australia.
The officer, quoting one of those on board, Snilul, 25, from Bangladesh, said the navy had “shot into the air just to scare them”. 
Naturally, leftoids fell for it. They’re seething like hot rats. Never mind this, from immigration minister Scott Morrison: 
“Without commenting on any specific alleged incident I can confirm that no shots have been fired at any time by any persons involved in Operation Sovereign Borders since the operation commenced,” he said in a statement. 
Leftoids aren’t listening to him. They prefer secondhand claims passed on by “a local police commissioner from southern Java, who did not want his name or his district published”.

I’M A CLIMATE CHAMPION

Tim Blair – Thursday, January 16, 2014 (4:45am)

The latest Greens email to their tragic supporters:

image

Yet Sophie is somehow still alive despite all those years of superheated horror. Her email launches the Greens’ fantastic new climate champion campaign: 
The Abbott Government wants to demolish our clean energy laws – legislation we know is working to halt global warming. 
This is a lie. Australian legislation cannot change the planet’s temperature. 
Currently, the Greens are standing in the way of Abbott ramming his roll-back through the Senate. 
Sophie! Language! 
Becoming a climate champion means you’ll be the first to know about campaign actions and opportunities in the coming months. We’ll send you a Climate Champion toolkit with everything you need to build awareness and support in your community. 
A climate champion toolkit … how absolutely darling. I’ve already applied for mine, and strongly encourage all of my fellow climate champions to join in. We want our climate champion toolkits now.
UPDATE. Links dropped out earlier, possibly due to climate change. Or maybe the Greens don’t want us in their climate champion club. Try them again.

MINISTER FOR SNOOP

Tim Blair – Thursday, January 16, 2014 (2:17am)

Immigration minister Scott Morrison no doubt anticipated one or two elements of his current job: hypocritical heckling from those whose policies killed more than one thousand asylum seekers, for example, and crybaby complaints from reporters who never bothered covering illegal boat arrivals when Labor was in power. But he probably didn’t expect thismagnificent ministerial moment: 
“Snoop Dogg has a visa,” Mr Morrison told reporters in Canberra.

PARTY OVER

Tim Blair – Thursday, January 16, 2014 (1:49am)

Maurice Newman, the man who made Jonathan Holmes so angry he could barely concentrate, continues his pursuitof climate berserkers: 
The IPCC was bound to be captured by the green movement. After all, it is a political body. It is not a panel of scientists but a panel of governments driven by the UN. Its sole purpose is to assess the risks of human-induced climate change. It has spawned industries. One is scientists determined to find an anthropogenic cause. Another is climate remediation. And, naturally, an industry to redistribute taxes to sustain it all. With hundreds of billions of dollars at stake, this cartel will deny all contrary evidence. Its very survival depends on it. But the tide is turning and Mother Nature has signalled her intention not to co-operate.
In the meantime, childish personal attacks on those who point out flaws in IPCC reasoning and advice only increase scepticism. They are no substitute for empirical evidence and are well into diminishing returns. The party’s over. 
Not much fun these days either for Lord Stern, the bumbling British warmist who doesn’t know anything aboutCadillacs and China.

Hamas rockets endanger 3.5 million Israeli lives every day. SHARE this so others know why we remain determined to protect our people.

Chag Tu B'Shevat Sameach to JEWS worldwide: Tu B’Shevat, the 15th of Shevat on the Jewish calendar, celebrated this year on Thursday, January 16, 2014, is the day that marks the beginning of a “new year” for trees. This is the season in which the earliest-blooming trees in the Land of Israel emerge from their winter sleep and begin a new fruit-bearing cycle. We mark the day of Tu B’Shevat by eating fruit, particularly from the kinds that are singled out by the Torah in its praise of the bounty of the Holy Land: grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives and dates. On this day we remember that “man is a tree of the field” (Deuteronomy 20:19), and reflect on the lessons we can derive from our botanical analogue.>

We have started 2014 continuing to do what we do best - speak the truth! At Patriot Voices, we refuse to back down, even when faced with extreme opposition!
If you had a chance to see me onMeet the Press last Sunday, it was stunning to see how quickly everyone on the panel tried to discount what I had just said about the new book by former Defense Secretary Robert Gates.
The other panelists couldn't wait to talk over me, liberals like Chris Matthews and columnist Jeffrey Goldberg.  
screen shot1

This headline couldn't be more telling:  "Liberal 'Meet the Press' Panel Shouts Down Lone Conservative to Defend Obama Against Gates."
I am glad to have the opportunity to be the 'lone conservative' voice on a show like Meet the Press, and I appreciate their willingness to have my viewpoint.  This gives me the chance to stand up for our views and our values, but it also shows us all just how important Patriot Voices is to our fight since conservatives are so marginalized in the main stream media. 
Look no further than the panel on Meet the Press.  It was me against three liberals!
Patriot Voices is providing a megaphone for the conservative voice on the issues of the day.  Issues like restoring the American dream for hardworking families, standing up for the unborn and the family, and fighting for the values our Founding Fathers put forth when our country was founded.
We are fighting in the Halls of Congress to ensure that dangerous United Nations treaties are not ratified - like CRPD, the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. We are fighting the Obama Administration to demand the release of American Pastor Saeed Abedini. And we are fighting to reignite the manufacturing sector of this country and restore the American dream for hardworking families.
Our work continues, but only if we have the resources to keep our voices amplified.
To sit back and do nothing would be a mistake for our future and for our country. We must fight for our children and grandchildren.
Thank you,

Morning and Evening by Charles Spurgeon
January 15: Morning
"Do as thou hast said." - 2 Samuel 7:25
God's promises were never meant to be thrown aside as waste paper; he intended that they should be used. God's gold is not miser's money, but is minted to be traded with. Nothing pleases our Lord better than to see his promises put in circulation; he loves to see his children bring them up to him, and say, "Lord, do as thou hast said." We glorify God when we plead his promises. Do you think that God will be any the poorer for giving you the riches he has promised? Do you dream that he will be any the less holy for giving holiness to you? Do you imagine he will be any the less pure for washing you from your sins? He has said "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." Faith lays hold upon the promise of pardon, and it does not delay, saying, "This is a precious promise, I wonder if it be true?" but it goes straight to the throne with it, and pleads, "Lord, here is the promise, Do as thou hast said.'" Our Lord replies, "Be it unto thee even as thou wilt." When a Christian grasps a promise, if he does not take it to God, he dishonours him; but when he hastens to the throne of grace, and cries, "Lord, I have nothing to recommend me but this, Thou hast said it;'" then his desire shall be granted. Our heavenly Banker delights to cash his own notes. Never let the promise rust. Draw the sword of promise out of its scabbard, and use it with holy violence. Think not that God will be troubled by your importunately reminding him of his promises. He loves to hear the loud outcries of needy souls. It is his delight to bestow favours. He is more ready to hear than you are to ask. The sun is not weary of shining, nor the fountain of flowing. It is God's nature to keep his promises; therefore go at once to the throne with "Do as thou hast said."
Evening
"But I give myself unto prayer." - Psalm 109:4
Lying tongues were busy against the reputation of David, but he did not defend himself; he moved the case into a higher court, and pleaded before the great King himself. Prayer is the safest method of replying to words of hatred. The Psalmist prayed in no cold-hearted manner, he gave himself to the exercise--threw his whole soul and heart into it--straining every sinew and muscle, as Jacob did when wrestling with the angel. Thus, and thus only, shall any of us speed at the throne of grace. As a shadow has no power because there is no substance in it, even so that supplication, in which a man's proper self is not thoroughly present in agonizing earnestness and vehement desire, is utterly ineffectual, for it lacks that which would give it force. "Fervent prayer," says an old divine, "like a cannon planted at the gates of heaven, makes them fly open." The common fault with the most of us is our readiness to yield to distractions. Our thoughts go roving hither and thither, and we make little progress towards our desired end. Like quicksilver our mind will not hold together, but rolls off this way and that. How great an evil this is! It injures us, and what is worse, it insults our God. What should we think of a petitioner, if, while having an audience with a prince, he should be playing with a feather or catching a fly?

Continuance and perseverance are intended in the expression of our text. David did not cry once, and then relapse into silence; his holy clamour was continued till it brought down the blessing. Prayer must not be our chance work, but our daily business, our habit and vocation. As artists give themselves to their models, and poets to their classical pursuits, so must we addict ourselves to prayer. We must be immersed in prayer as in our element, and so pray without ceasing. Lord, teach us so to pray that we may be more and more prevalent in supplication.

Today's reading: Genesis 36-38, Matthew 10:21-42 (NIV)

View today's reading on Bible Gateway

Today's Old Testament reading: Genesis 36-38

Esau's Descendants
This is the account of the family line of Esau (that is, Edom).
2 Esau took his wives from the women of Canaan: Adah daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Oholibamah daughter of Anah and granddaughter of Zibeon the Hivite-- 3 also Basemath daughter of Ishmael and sister of Nebaioth.
4 Adah bore Eliphaz to Esau, Basemath bore Reuel, 5 and Oholibamah bore Jeush, Jalam and Korah. These were the sons of Esau, who were born to him in Canaan.
6 Esau took his wives and sons and daughters and all the members of his household, as well as his livestock and all his other animals and all the goods he had acquired in Canaan, and moved to a land some distance from his brother Jacob. 7 Their possessions were too great for them to remain together; the land where they were staying could not support them both because of their livestock. 8 So Esau (that is, Edom) settled in the hill country of Seir.

Today's New Testament reading: Matthew 10:21-42

21 "Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death. 22You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. 23 When you are persecuted in one place, flee to another. Truly I tell you, you will not finish going through the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes.
24 "The student is not above the teacher, nor a servant above his master. 25 It is enough for students to be like their teachers, and servants like their masters. If the head of the house has been called Beelzebul, how much more the members of his household!
