James 3

1NOT MANY [of you] should become teachers (a]">[a]self-constituted censors and reprovers of others), my brethren, for you know that we [teachers] will be judged by a higher standard and with greater severity [than other people; thus we assume the greater accountability and the more condemnation].

2For we all often stumble and fall and offend in many things. And if anyone does not offend in speech [never says the wrong things], he is a fully developed character and a perfect man, able to control his whole body and to curb his entire nature.

3If we set bits in the horses' mouths to make them obey us, we can turn their whole bodies about.

4Likewise, look at the ships: though they are so great and are driven by rough winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the impulse of the helmsman determines.

5Even so the tongue is a little member, and it can boast of great things. See how much wood or how great a forest a tiny spark can set ablaze!

6And the tongue is a fire. [The tongue is a] world of wickedness set among our members, contaminating and depraving the whole body and setting on fire the wheel of birth (the cycle of man's nature), being itself ignited by hell (Gehenna).

7For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and sea animal, can be tamed and has been tamed by human genius (nature).

8But the human tongue can be tamed by no man. It is a restless (undisciplined, irreconcilable) evil, full of deadly poison.

9With it we bless the Lord and Father, and with it we curse men who were made in God's likeness!

10Out of the same mouth come forth blessing and cursing. These things, my brethren, ought not to be so.

11Does a fountain send forth [simultaneously] from the same opening fresh water and bitter?

12Can a fig tree, my brethren, bear olives, or a grapevine figs? Neither can a salt spring furnish fresh water.

13Who is there among you who is wise and intelligent? Then let him by his noble living show forth his [good] works with the [unobtrusive] humility [which is the proper attribute] of true wisdom.

14But if you have bitter jealousy (envy) and contention (rivalry, selfish ambition) in your hearts, do not pride yourselves on it and thus be in defiance of and false to the Truth.

15This [superficial] wisdom is not such as comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual (animal), even devilish (demoniacal).

16For wherever there is jealousy (envy) and contention (rivalry and selfish ambition), there will also be confusion (unrest, disharmony, rebellion) and all sorts of evil and vile practices.

17But the wisdom from above is first of all pure (undefiled); then it is peace-loving, courteous (considerate, gentle). [It is willing to] yield to reason, full of compassion and good fruits; it is wholehearted and straightforward, impartial and unfeigned (free from doubts, wavering, and insincerity).

18And the harvest of righteousness (of conformity to God's will in thought and deed) is [the fruit of the seed] sown in peace by those who work for and make peace [in themselves and in others, that peace which means concord, agreement, and harmony between individuals, with undisturbedness, in a peaceful mind free from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts]

WFRL: The King Must Die

Stop this day and night with me
and you shall possess the origin of all poems

You shall possess the good of the earth and sun....
there are millions of suns left.

You shall no longer take things at second or third hand....
nor look through the eyes of the dead
nor feed on the specters in books

You shall not look through my eyes either
nor take things from me

You shall listen to all sides and filter them from yourself
~ Walt Whitman

Elton John
The King Must Die

No man's a jester playing Shakespeare
Round your throne room floor
While the juggler's act is danced upon
The crown that you once wore

And sooner or later
Everybody's kingdom must end
And I'm so afraid your courtiers
Cannot be called best friends

Caesar's had your troubles
Widows had to cry
While mercenaries in cloisters sing
And the king must die

Some men are better staying sailors
Take my word and go
But tell the ostler that his name was
The very first they chose

And if my hands are stained forever
And the altar should refuse me
Would you let me in, would you let me in, would you let me in
Should I cry sanctuary

No man's a jester playing Shakespeare
Round your throne room floor
While the juggler's act is danced upon
The crown that you once wore

The king is dead, the king is dead
Long live the king

You will hardly know who I am or what I mean
But I shall be good health to you nevertheless
And filter and fibre your blood

The article has made serious insulting, derogatory and incorrect references against Prophet Muhammad that has hurt the sentiments of the Muslims all over the world. The spokesman strongly condemned the incendiary contents in the article and called for appropriate steps against publication or broadcast of materials that insult and hurt religious sentiments.

"There are a lot of issues we need to work out with Moscow," said Wood.

On the agenda was nuclear arms reduction, stabilizing Afghanistan and a dispute with Moscow's ally Kyrgyzstan over its plans to close the Manas military base.

And Now, a Word from Dr. Robert Morey

Dr. Robert Morey Speaks


By Dr. Robert Morey

Jewish and Christian Apologists have always used satire in the defense of the faith and the ridicule of unbelief. The satire of Elijah on Mt. Carmel was as brilliant as it was brutal (1 Kings 18:27). Jesus and Paul did not lack in the use of satire (Gal. 5:12). John Bunyan and many great Christian writers and preachers used satire as a sword to cut to the heart of unbelief. Did they offend people and hurt their feelings? You bet they did! Did they care? NO! In Matt. 15:12-14 we read,

Then the disciples came and said to Him,
“Do You know that the Pharisees were offended
when they heard this statement?”
But He answered and said,
“Every plant that My heavenly Father did not plant shall be rooted up”.
“Ignore them.”
“They are blind guides of the blind.”
“And if a blind man guides a blind man, both will fall into a pit.”

Jesus had just ridiculed them and called them “hypocrites” for robbing their parents in the name of God (vs. 1-18). Did the Pharisees “feel hurt” when Jesus publicly called them names and described them as thieves? Yes. Did Jesus run over to them, get down on his knees, and beg their forgiveness for hurting their feelings? No.

Psalms Chapter 25

א לְדָוִד: אֵלֶיךָ יְהוָה, נַפְשִׁי אֶשָּׂא. 1 [A Psalm] of David. Unto Thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.
ב אֱלֹהַי--בְּךָ בָטַחְתִּי, אַל-אֵבוֹשָׁה; אַל-יַעַלְצוּ אוֹיְבַי לִי. 2 O my God, in Thee have I trusted, let me not be ashamed; let not mine enemies triumph over me.
ג גַּם כָּל-קֹוֶיךָ, לֹא יֵבֹשׁוּ; יֵבֹשׁוּ, הַבּוֹגְדִים רֵיקָם. 3 Yea, none that wait for Thee shall be ashamed; they shall be ashamed that deal treacherously without cause.
ד דְּרָכֶיךָ יְהוָה, הוֹדִיעֵנִי; אֹרְחוֹתֶיךָ לַמְּדֵנִי. 4 Show me Thy ways, O LORD; teach me Thy paths.
ה הַדְרִיכֵנִי בַאֲמִתֶּךָ, וְלַמְּדֵנִי-- כִּי-אַתָּה, אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׁעִי;
אוֹתְךָ קִוִּיתִי, כָּל-הַיּוֹם.
5 Guide me in Thy truth, and teach me; for Thou art the God of my salvation; for Thee do I wait all the day.
ו זְכֹר-רַחֲמֶיךָ יְהוָה, וַחֲסָדֶיךָ: כִּי מֵעוֹלָם הֵמָּה. 6 Remember, O LORD, Thy compassions and Thy mercies; for they have been from of old.
ז חַטֹּאות נְעוּרַי, וּפְשָׁעַי-- אַל-תִּזְכֹּר:
כְּחַסְדְּךָ זְכָר-לִי-אַתָּה-- לְמַעַן טוּבְךָ יְהוָה.
7 Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions; according to Thy mercy remember Thou me, for Thy goodness' sake, O LORD.
ח טוֹב-וְיָשָׁר יְהוָה; עַל-כֵּן יוֹרֶה חַטָּאִים בַּדָּרֶךְ. 8 Good and upright is the LORD; therefore doth He instruct sinners in the way.
ט יַדְרֵךְ עֲנָוִים, בַּמִּשְׁפָּט; וִילַמֵּד עֲנָוִים דַּרְכּוֹ. 9 He guideth the humble in justice; and He teacheth the humble His way.
י כָּל-אָרְחוֹת יְהוָה, חֶסֶד וֶאֱמֶת-- לְנֹצְרֵי בְרִיתוֹ, וְעֵדֹתָיו. 10 All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep His covenant and His testimonies.
יא לְמַעַן-שִׁמְךָ יְהוָה; וְסָלַחְתָּ לַעֲו‍ֹנִי, כִּי רַב-הוּא. 11 For Thy name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity, for it is great.
יב מִי-זֶה הָאִישׁ, יְרֵא יְהוָה-- יוֹרֶנּוּ, בְּדֶרֶךְ יִבְחָר. 12 What man is he that feareth the LORD? Him will He instruct in the way that he should choose.
יג נַפְשׁוֹ, בְּטוֹב תָּלִין; וְזַרְעוֹ, יִירַשׁ אָרֶץ. 13 His soul shall abide in prosperity; and his seed shall inherit the land.
יד סוֹד יְהוָה, לִירֵאָיו; וּבְרִיתוֹ, לְהוֹדִיעָם. 14 The counsel of the LORD is with them that fear Him; and His covenant, to make them know it.
טו עֵינַי תָּמִיד, אֶל-יְהוָה: כִּי הוּא-יוֹצִיא מֵרֶשֶׁת רַגְלָי. 15 Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for He will bring forth my feet out of the net.
טז פְּנֵה-אֵלַי וְחָנֵּנִי: כִּי-יָחִיד וְעָנִי אָנִי. 16 Turn Thee unto me, and be gracious unto me; for I am solitary and afflicted.
יז צָרוֹת לְבָבִי הִרְחִיבוּ; מִמְּצוּקוֹתַי, הוֹצִיאֵנִי. 17 The troubles of my heart are enlarged; O bring Thou me out of my distresses.
יח רְאֵה עָנְיִי, וַעֲמָלִי; וְשָׂא, לְכָל-חַטֹּאותָי. 18 See mine affliction and my travail; and forgive all my sins.
יט רְאֵה-אֹיְבַי כִּי-רָבּוּ; וְשִׂנְאַת חָמָס שְׂנֵאוּנִי. 19 Consider how many are mine enemies, and the cruel hatred wherewith they hate me.
כ שָׁמְרָה נַפְשִׁי, וְהַצִּילֵנִי; אַל-אֵבוֹשׁ, כִּי-חָסִיתִי בָךְ. 20 O keep my soul, and deliver me; let me not be ashamed, for I have taken refuge in Thee.
כא תֹּם-וָיֹשֶׁר יִצְּרוּנִי: כִּי, קִוִּיתִיךָ. 21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, because I wait for Thee.
כב פְּדֵה אֱלֹהִים, אֶת-יִשְׂרָאֵל-- מִכֹּל, צָרוֹתָיו. 22 Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.

Elton John
This Song Has No Title

Tune me in to the wild side of life
I'm an innocent young child sharp as a knife
Take me to the garretts where the artists have died
Show me the courtrooms where the judges have lied

Let me drink deeply from the water and the wine
Light coloured candles in dark dreary mines
Look in the mirror and stare at myself
And wonder if that's really me on the shelf

And each day I learn just a little bit more
I don't know why but I do know what for
If we're all going somewhere let's get there soon
Oh this song's got no title just words and a tune

Take me down alleys where the murders are done
In a vast high powered rocket to the core of the sun
Want to read books in the studies of men
Born on the breeze and die on the wind

If I was an artist who paints with his eyes
I'd study my subject and silently cry
Cry for my darkness to come down on me
For confusion to carry on turning the wheel

"I'll see what happens at the border. Let them put me in handcuffs," Wilders told Radio Netherlands in an interview Wednesday.

Who won? No one.

Leaders of the two main Israeli parties are seeking coalition partners to form a government after neither emerged the clear winner in early elections. The governing centrist Kadima won 28 seats and the right-wing Likud opposition won 27 - both well short of the 61 needed to form a government. The ultra-nationalist Yisrael Beiteinu came third with 15 seats. Israel's president is expected to begin consultations next week about which party to ask to form a government.

"Policy was always behind the curve, always chasing the escalating crisis," Geithner said, criticizing his predecessor, Henry M. Paulson Jr. "The emergency actions meant to provide confidence and reassurance too often added to public anxiety and to investor uncertainty."

But yesterday, Geithner seemed to be following the Hank Paulson playbook, according to a wide consensus on Wall Street, in Washington, and beyond.

The Obama Brand
It's clear that Obama recognizes the power that his email list, which boasts more than 13 million names, represents in American politics and is working to ensure it stays within the control of a small group who are charged with protecting the Obama brand.
David Plouffe has a list
It was Plouffe (rhymes with bluff) who gathered the president's unprecedented thirteen-million-name contact list, which has grown into a fulsome pulsing beast, and it is Plouffe who now owns it and keeps it under lock and key. Plouffe sent those thirteen million people an e-mail in mid-November and they replied, Yes, I still want to be involved, and yes, David Plouffe, I'll have house parties when you tell me to. Here is who I am socioeconomically and socially. I am boxers; my next-door neighbor is briefs. Now the president has instructed him to make that list a new lever of government.

No president has ever entered office with this much information. The closest thing to it, Begala says, were direct-mail lists like Ronald Reagan's back in 1980. But, he says, "it's a different thing than Reagan writing, 'Send me thirty-five bucks if you want to fight the Commies.' " This list is granular. And it is flexible and transferable to myriad media outlets — even those not yet invented. Begala believes it could potentially "revolutionize progressive politics."
David Plouffe and the Call of Oil
...but now he’s flying off to oil-rich Azerbaijan at the invitation of a pro-democracy front group that works closely with the ruling despot.

Plouffe will be giving a speech and also be meeting with President Ilham Aliyev, who inherited power from his father, a former KGB chieftain who took over the country when the Soviet Union collapsed.

Melanie Phillips:
The seditious role of the community organiser was developed by an extreme left intellectual called Saul Alinsky. He was a radical Chicago activist who, by the time he died in 1972, had had a profound influence on the highest levels of the Democratic party.

Alinsky was a ‘transformational Marxist’ in the mould of Antonio Gramsci, who promoted the strategy of a ‘long march through the institutions’ by capturing the culture and turning it inside out as the most effective means of overturning western society. In similar vein, Alinsky condemned the New Left for alienating the general public by its demonstrations and outlandish appearance. The revolution had to be carried out through stealth and deception. Its proponents had to cultivate an image of centrism and pragmatism. A master of infiltration, Alinsky wooed Chicago mobsters and Wall Street financiers alike. And successive Democratic politicians fell under his spell.

WORKERS WORLD SEZ: Marx, Darwin, and the upheaval in the biological sciences
This essay by the founder of Workers World Party was originally published in the Workers World of March 25, 1983, to coincide with the centennial of the death of Karl Marx.

It would be wholly inappropriate and indeed regrettable to discuss the centennial of Marx’s death without touching on the relationship between Marxism and Darwinism, and on the relation of Marx and Darwin as contemporaries who also corresponded with each other.
The media proposal, which was included in “The Global Agenda 2009” report, is to create “a new global network” with “the capacity to connect the world, bridging cultures and peoples, and telling us who we are and what we mean to each other.” Several prominent U.S. media figures signed on to the alarming and controversial proposal.

Isn’t it nice that we might have a TV network telling us “who we are?” And “what we mean to each other?” Perhaps we will learn that we are global citizens. Perhaps a global leader of some sort will tell us that. Who might that be?

This outlandish and frightening proposal doesn’t come from a fringe organization. The WEF is an exclusive club of very rich and powerful people from around the world. It describes itself as “an independent international organization committed to improving the state of the world by engaging leaders in partnerships to shape global, regional and industry agendas.”
