Tue Jan 7th Todays News

The New York Times has described them as 'Warmists' since 1989. One can look at the greenhouse gasses in Earth's atmosphere, and correctly deduce Carbon Dioxide is only responsible for feeding plants. Maybe the technology will exist one day to remove water vapour from the atmosphere, but if that time comes, let us hope there is sufficient wisdom to not do that. US is enduring a cold snap. Summer is so cold in Australia that a research vessel is locked in ice. But Warmists stoically endure. 
Evil endures too. Like that of those german women who followed through with the holocaust. One has to shudder at what the daily atrocity in Middle East is doing to the children there. Obama has isolated the only state capable of stability and peace, Israel. Evil endures as those who collect money for the poor, divert it. Tim Costello and World Vision need to explain themselves. 
Some were surprised at the sentence of a thug. It is ok, he wasn't going to kill a shark. An eight year old girl is wearing a suicide vest in Afghanistan, proving Obama has indeed won the war.

WORD ACCEPTED

Tim Blair – Tuesday, January 07, 2014 (1:34pm)

The New York Times, 1989: 
Among climatologists, global warming is just one scenario for the unusual atmospheric changes that have been observed throughout the world. Those who accept the global-warming theory are said to take the warmist position. 
Your move, Stephen.

PHONING IT IN

Tim Blair – Tuesday, January 07, 2014 (5:13am)

Our World Vision kid – we’ve been sponsoring him for ten years or so – isn’t exactly meeting his KPIs:

World Vision sends us a drawing from the boy every Christmas. Sadly, there is never any sign of improvement. In fact, lately he seems to be regressing.
He’s now 17 years old. The above image is his most recent illustration.
UPDATE. In 2008, an ABC correspondent went to Ethiopia to meet his World Vision sponsor child – who didn’t know she was sponsored
Andrew Geoghegan has sponsored Tsehaynesh for a decade and yet she claims she was unaware, until recently, that she had a sponsor and says the only benefit she has ever received directly from World Vision is a pen and the denim jacket she wore on the day of filming.

STOMPER STOMPED

Tim Blair – Tuesday, January 07, 2014 (4:59am)

As a guide to the absolute lameness of NSW courts, consider that Russell Packer’s lawyer was surprised when his thug client actually received a jail sentence: 
The lawyer of NRL player Russell Packer has challenged a magistrate’s decision to imprison him for two years, claiming he had “no idea” a punishment so severe was being considered by the court. 
The lawyer never saw it coming. Kind of like Packer’s victim: 
The court heard Packer became involved in an argument with another man over two cigarettes, before striking him to the head with a closed fist.
According to facts tendered to the court, Packer continued to strike the victim while he was lying motionless on the ground, before stomping on his head.
The victim, a 22-year-old man, sustained a fractured eye socket as a result of the attack.
Packer’s lawyer claimed his client had no previous criminal record and had the correct support network at the Newcastle Knights to be completely rehabilitated. 
Magistrate Greg Grogin wasn’t swayed: 
“Your behaviour on that night was nothing short of disgraceful,” he told Packer in court.
“It is deplorable ... you should be ashamed.
“The community is sick and tired of the behaviour you exhibited that night.” 
Packer “seemed confused” by the sentence, which is understandable considering how violent idiots are frequently treated lightly by NSW courts. Further on the case here.

INTERNATIONAL ATTENTION

Tim Blair – Tuesday, January 07, 2014 (3:20am)

The ABC is thrilled because a solitary American has joined a Western Australian shark-saving campaign
Western Australia’s new shark killing policy is gaining international attention with an American environmentalist taking her opposition to the plan to the streets of Texas …
Thousands of people joined a protest against the plan at Cottesloe Beach on the weekend.
Now the protest has gone international with Texan Carey Barlow-Heyden circulating information and a petition against the plan in her local area – the city of New Braunfels in Texas.
“What mainly concerns me is they would take such a drastic [action] to kill these animals,” she said …
“I think it’s something we should definitely care about.” 
Given that New Braunfels is only three hours or so from the ocean, you can understand why shark care is such a crucial issue for local residents. Interestingly, Carey Barlow-Heyden is apparently an Etsy girl who makes her own jewellery. Among her favourite materials: 
Shark teeth, Arrowheads, Anything fun, colorful and unique

Chiune Sugihara. This man saved 6000 Jews. He was a Japanese diplomat in Lithuania. When the Nazis began rounding up Jews, Sugihara risked his life to start issuing unlawful travel visas to Jews. He hand-wrote them 18 hrs a day. The day his consulate closed and he had to evacuate, witnesses claim he was STILL writing visas and throwing from the train as he pulled away. He saved 6000 lives. The world didn’t know what he’d done until Israel honored him in 1985, the year before he died.

“SHARKS CAN KILL PEOPLE BUT PEOPLE CAN’T KILL SHARKS”: Greens

“Whales must not be slaughtered but for a $5,000 baby bonus, late-term infants can be butchered in an equally bloody mess”: Greens. “Native animals’ habitat must not be back-burnt but people can be incinerated”: Greens.

Every political Party has is its odd extremist; Labor its Macklins, the Libs its Bernadis and the Greens, well the Greens it seems are all extremists.

Of course the Libs aren’t serious about stopping the slaughter of the over-populated Minke whale. That’s a centuries’ old traditional Japanese food source and it used to be a world-wide food source with millions harvested on a yearly basis. Funny, but not one species became extinct.

The only way whale numbers are controlled now, to conserve their own food source of krill, is for them to beach themselves!

But hang on, aren’t the Aborigines permitted their traditional food source of turtles and dugongs? Aren’t the American Indians and the Inuits allowed to traditionally harvest their “endangered” species? Is it because there are just too many Japanese for them to be allowed their traditional food source? Or is it a case of too few whales?

Well, it simply can’t be too few whales because whales once fed and supplied the world with all sorts of stuff from oil to perfume as a renewable resource.

But the Greens’ agenda is far more extreme than mere whales.

Seven per cent of the population won’t be happy until we and our pets are no longer carnivorous, animals are not allowed to participate in sport, the diseased fruit bat can nest in our living rooms and the tree kangaroo has got control of the TV remote.

But the most shameful of the Greens’ hard-wired immorality is that Bob Brown can rail against the bloody slaughter of the Minke whale yet can legislate for the bloody slaughter of a live and kicking unborn baby.

Not only that but the bloody slaughter of the unborn baby is rewarded with a $5,000 baby bonus! The Greens signed off on that despicable legislation of the not-so-ex-communist, Jenny Macklin.

And Abbott says he will not play with abortion laws.

This is not a conservative thing, it’s a moral thing: Women are serving long jail terms right now for the murder of their newborn babies yet a doctor can insert secateurs into a uterus and rip an unborn baby to pieces, dropping it, still moving and with its heart still spewing blood, on the tiled floor!

The infant had a fully-formed nervous system, it could feel pain, yet it couldn’t breathe or make a sound, it couldn’t plead its case for life. It only felt cold instruments tearing at its little limbs and torso.

And the woman says, “It’s my body and I can do what I want!” WTF?

Is this why mum nurtured and coddled me in that warm womb for months? Is this what life’s all about? I could have been anything if only mum had given me a chance! I was perfect!

A few short developmental weeks later and it’s murder, but right now it deserves a $5k bonus.

Macklin’s legislation essentially decrees that, while in the womb and not breathing, the child can be legally murdered for profit. Out of the womb, and after taking its first breath, it could complain, therefore the mother and the doctor go to jail. But that’s only when it’s proven, and it never is.

Want to know why I appear angry?

Well, I sat beside a humidicrib for months watching a little girl of 27 weeks fight for life. She is now a beautiful, intelligent and caring five-year-old and I am within a bee’s dick of posting those horrific pics of late term abortions. But I won’t.

Instead I will listen to the Greens complain of the prolific Minke whale being killed for food and the insufficient numbers of WA bathers to keep those Great Whites happy.

A great video by DVB released today highlighting that many prisoners detained under criminal charges have been released, yet many activists remain behind bars. 

It must be understood that international demands for the release of all political prisoners have not been met by Thein Sein. State-run media and Thein Sein's press office would like the world to believe that all political prisoners have been released as promised. Releasing criminals to make this claim is a slap in the face for the thousands of Rohingya, hundreds of Kachin, and many activists and farmers who remain behind bars for trumped up charges under Draconian laws.

<If the situation that Israel now finds herself in wasn't so tragic it would be almost laughable in terms of stupidity and cowardice. Why are we so afraid to say no to releasing wanton killers especially those who have murdered their fellow citizens. Why are we allowing Abbas who has no real authority over his people to dictate terms that can ultimately lead to the end of the Jewish State. What has happened to the courage we once had in the face of evil. That one man, no not John Kerry, Barack Hussein Obama is able to strike such fear in our hearts that we Jews will agree to anything shows how far we have fallen. Once again Caroline has laid out the bare bones of our dilemma and it is ugly beyond belief.>

“Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming.” - 1 Peter 1:13
===
Morning and Evening by Charles Spurgeon
January 6: Morning
"Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you." - 1 Peter 5:7
It is a happy way of soothing sorrow when we can feel--"HE careth for me." Christian! do not dishonour religion by always wearing a brow of care; come, cast your burden upon your Lord. You are staggering beneath a weight which your Father would not feel. What seems to you a crushing burden, would be to him but as the small dust of the balance. Nothing is so sweet as to

"Lie passive in God's hands,
And know no will but his."

O child of suffering, be thou patient; God has not passed thee over in his providence. He who is the feeder of sparrows, will also furnish you with what you need. Sit not down in despair; hope on, hope ever. Take up the arms of faith against a sea of trouble, and your opposition shall yet end your distresses. There is One who careth for you. His eye is fixed on you, his heart beats with pity for your woe, and his hand omnipotent shall yet bring you the needed help. The darkest cloud shall scatter itself in showers of mercy. The blackest gloom shall give place to the morning. He, if thou art one of his family, will bind up thy wounds, and heal thy broken heart. Doubt not his grace because of thy tribulation, but believe that he loveth thee as much in seasons of trouble as in times of happiness. What a serene and quiet life might you lead if you would leave providing to the God of providence! With a little oil in the cruse, and a handful of meal in the barrel, Elijah outlived the famine, and you will do the same. If God cares for you, why need you care too? Can you trust him for your soul, and not for your body? He has never refused to bear your burdens, he has never fainted under their weight. Come, then, soul! have done with fretful care, and leave all thy concerns in the hand of a gracious God.
Evening
"Now the hand of the Lord was upon me in the evening." -Ezekiel 33:22
In the way of judgment this may be the case, and, if so, be it mine to consider the reason of such a visitation, and bear the rod and him that hath appointed it. I am not the only one who is chastened in the night season; let me cheerfully submit to the affliction, and carefully endeavour to be profited thereby. But the hand of the Lord may also be felt in another manner, strengthening the soul and lifting the spirit upward towards eternal things. O that I may in this sense feel the Lord dealing with me! A sense of the divine presence and indwelling bears the soul towards heaven as upon the wings of eagles. At such times we are full to the brim with spiritual joy, and forget the cares and sorrows of earth; the invisible is near, and the visible loses its power over us; servant-body waits at the foot of the hill, and the master-spirit worships upon the summit in the presence of the Lord. O that a hallowed season of divine communion may be vouchsafed to me this evening! The Lord knows that I need it very greatly. My graces languish, my corruptions rage, my faith is weak, my devotion is cold; all these are reasons why his healing hand should be laid upon me. His hand can cool the heat of my burning brow, and stay the tumult of my palpitating heart. That glorious right hand which moulded the world can new-create my mind; the unwearied hand which bears the earth's huge pillars up can sustain my spirit; the loving hand which incloses all the saints can cherish me; and the mighty hand which breaketh in pieces the enemy can subdue my sins. Why should I not feel that hand touching me this evening? Come, my soul, address thy God with the potent plea, that Jesus' hands were pierced for thy redemption, and thou shalt surely feel that same hand upon thee which once touched Daniel and set him upon his knees that he might see visions of God.

Hagar and Ishmael
Now Sarai, Abram's wife, had borne him no children. But she had an Egyptian maidservant named Hagar; 2 so she said to Abram, "The LORD has kept me from having children. Go, sleep with my maidservant; perhaps I can build a family through her."
Abram agreed to what Sarai said. 3 So after Abram had been living in Canaan ten years, Sarai his wife took her Egyptian maidservant Hagar and gave her to her husband to be his wife.4 He slept with Hagar, and she conceived.

Adultery
27 "You have heard that it was said, 'Do not commit adultery.' 28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.
