Update: Subpoena to be Delivered, Obama Birth Certificate to be Examined in Hawaii on August 8th, 2011

Update August 8, 2011: Hawaii DOH Refuses to Comply with Subpoena, Federal Judge Tells Hawaii Officials to Explain Obama’s Birth Records – “California attorney Orly Taitz today secured an order from United States District Court Magistrate Judge Richard L. Puglisi demanding representatives of the Hawaii Department of Health appear in federal court Sept. 14 to show why Taitz should be prevented from seeing whatever original 1961 documents the agency has on record regarding Barack Obama’s birth.

Taitz returned to federal court in Honolulu today after Hawaii DOH officials presented her with a letter refusing to comply with her subpoena on grounds that Hawaii privacy laws prevented officials from releasing Obama birth records to the public.

‘It’s ridiculous,’ Taitz told WND.

She had argued previously – without getting a response from the state – that Obama had waived all privacy rights by releasing his long-form birth certificate to the American public at a White House press conference April 27.

The ExParte Emergency Motion for Order to Show Cause and to Compel Attendance for Production of Documents that Taitz filed with the federal magistrate asked the court to demand Hawaii DOH head Loretta Fuddy appear in court to explain why she would not comply with the subpoena.

‘Getting a federal judge to demand Fuddy’s attendance at a show-cause hearing is a victory,’ Taitz said. ‘I will return to Hawaii on Sept. 14 and I expect then to be able to force the Hawaii DOH to turn over the relevant records as demanded by the subpoena.'” Read more.

Subpoena to be Delivered, Obama Birth Certificate to be Examined in Hawaii on August 8th, 2011 – “Computer scanning expert Doug Vogt and typesetting expert Paul Irey say they will accompany attorney Orly Taitz when she presents to the Hawaii Department of Health a subpoena that should allow her to examine Barack Obama’s original 1961 typewritten birth certificate.

Vogt and Irey both told WND they are making travel plans to join Taitz in Honolulu when she goes to the state agency at 10 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 8, to present the subpoena in person.

‘We will plan to hold a press conference late in the day of Aug. 8,’ Vogt said, ‘and if the document we see varies from the birth certificate documents the White House released, we plan to file criminal charges in Hawaii immediately.’

Vogt shared with WND a copy of a letter he has written to Hawaii Attorney General David Louie, putting Louie on notice regarding the reasons he believes the birth certificate released by the White House is fraudulent.

WND previously reported on Vogt’s decision to file a 22-page criminal complaint with the FBI.

Irey says it won’t take long to evaluate the original birth record, if it exists.

‘Over the years of my career, I’ve seen everything that can be put on paper,’ he said. ‘Now that I’m thoroughly familiar with what the White House released, I will be able to tell you within a few minutes, if what the Hawaii DOH has matches what the White House has released, or not.

‘I will expect to see the same differences in typeface that are on the White House version, otherwise I will know immediately that what the Hawaii DOH is showing us is a forgery.'” Read more.

UK: Islamists Continue to Set Up ‘Sharia Neighborhoods’ in London, Plans to Flood Muslim and Non-Muslim Communities

08/08/2011 Leave a comment

Daniel 7:25, “And he shall speak [great] words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.”

And still the government has failed to round up, jail, and deport all those responsible for treason. They say they’ll use the ‘full extent’ of their powers to prosecute any offenders, but when those powers are neutered by political correctness and couched under a veil of so-called ‘human rights’, the only government message that these Islamists are effectively hearing is this: You’re making a difference.  You can’t be stopped.  Seize the moment before the infidels come to their senses, and the world will be yours for the taking …

By Elad Benari – “Islamists in Britain have set up zones where the Muslim Sharia law would be enforced, local media reported last week.

The Daily Mail reported that some communities have been bombarded with bright yellow posters which read: ‘You are entering a Sharia-controlled zone – Islamic rules enforced.’

The messages were found on bus stops and street lamps, said the report, and have already been seen across certain boroughs in London. They order that ‘no gambling’, ‘no music or concerts’, ‘no drugs or smoking’ and ‘no alcohol’ should be seen in the Sharia-controlled zone.

According to the report, dozens of streets in the London boroughs of Waltham Forest, Tower Hamlets and Newham have been hit with these signs.

Hate preacher Anjem Choudary is reportedly behind the scheme, and he has said he plans to flood specific Muslim and non-Muslim communities around the UK and ‘put the seeds down for an Islamic Emirate in the long term.'” Read more.

India: Muslim Extremists in India Attack Christians, Threaten Christian Woman Who Converted from Islam to Christianity

08/08/2011 Leave a comment

“NEW DELHI – Four months after a recent convert to Christianity from Islam in eastern India’s West Bengal state was stripped and beaten, about 50 Muslim extremists yesterday disrupted a prayer meeting held in her home, threatening to burn it down if she did not return to Islam, area Christians said.

The extremists warned Selina Bibi of Motijil village in Murshidabad district that if she did not return to Islam, then she must either leave the area or see her house burned down. At her baptism at Believers Church four kilometers from her home on March 29, a large crowd of Muslim extremists disrupted the service, said a pastor identified only as Bashir.

‘I pleaded with them to let me at least finish the worship service before they attack us,’ he told Compass.

When word of her conversion to Christianity reached her village, another extremist group from Motijil led by Jamal Shaike disrupted the service. Shaike and the others verbally abused the Christians, and he ordered his son who was present at the service to leave immediately, Bashir said.

The pastor said that on April 5, two Muslim women along with members of the extremist group summoned Selina Bibi to one of their homes and forcefully stripped her naked.

‘The radicals believe that when any person from the Muslim community becomes Christian, they get Christian marks on their body,’ Bashir said. ‘When the radicals could not find such marks, they started beating her up.'” Read more.

India: Group of Muslim Men Try to Enforce Sharia Law on Women Shopping Alone and Without a Veil

08/08/2011 Leave a comment

No need to worry.  It was ‘almost’ another one of these 17,500+ misunderstandings only …

“Bhopal: A group of Muslim youths made an unsuccessful bid to enforce ‘Shariat’ on women shopping alone in the markets of Bhopal, leading to a brawl with shopkeepers on Sunday.

The youth were trying to put into practice the preachings of the City Qazi, who had advised women against shopping alone or without purdah (veil).

Inspired by the sermon, some youth went on a rampage, asking women to go home. When the women refused to accept their firman, the youth attacked shop keepers with scissors and looted their shops.

The incident took place at Chowk Bazzar here on Sunday. The police, however, registered a case of loot against 12 unidentified persons in Kotwali police station based on a complaint lodged by a shop keeper.

The frenzied action from the youths, according to community members, was the outcome of a ‘misunderstanding.'” Read more.

UK: After Repeatedly Beaten by Husband Young Muslim Mother Seeks Divorce, ‘Sharia Court’ Tells Her to Grin and Bear It

08/08/2011 Leave a comment

What?  Surely, this sort of inequitable treatment of women can’t really be happening within the ‘religion of peace.’  Then again, maybe this guy really is just telling it like it is …

By Jonathan Wynne-Jones – “After being beaten repeatedly by her husband – who had also threatened to kill her – Jameela turned to her local Sharia council in a desperate bid for a way out of her marriage. Today she discovers the verdict. Playing nervously with her hands, the young mother-of-three listens as the panel of judges discuss whether they should grant her a divorce.

The council meets once a month at the Birmingham Central Mosque. Many of the cases relate to divorce and involve the husbands and wives entering the room separately to make their appeals.

In an airless room in the bowels of the mosque, Jameela is asked to explain why she wants a divorce. She replies that her husband spends most of his time with his second wife – Islamic law allows men to have up to four wives – but complains he is abusive whenever he returns to her home.

Across the desk, Dr Mohammed Naseem, chair of the mosque’s Sharia council, sits alongside Talha Bokhari, a white-robed imam, and Amra Bone, the only woman sitting on an Islamic court in this country.

While a husband is not required to go through official channels to gain a divorce – being able to achieve this merely by uttering the word ‘talaq’ – Islamic law requires that the wife must persuade the judges to grant her a dissolution.

Although the judges appear sympathetic, they are concerned about the rights of the father, as Islamic law says he is still responsible for his children’s education. ‘For the sake of the children, you must keep up the façade of cordial relations,’ says Dr Naseem. ‘The worst thing that can happen to a child is to see the father and mother quarrelling.’

Jameela is one of hundreds of Muslims applying to Islamic courts every week for a ruling on family and financial issues. While these courts may be the cornerstone of many of Britain’s Pakistani and Bangladeshi communities, there are growing concerns that they are creating a parallel legal system – and one that is developing completely unchecked.” Read more.

Oklahoma City: First Rain Since Drought Started … Is Radioactive

08/08/2011 3 comments

Infant mortality rates are increasing.  Health Canada admits that it is finding massive radiation spikes all across the country.  Biologists are saying that conditions at Fukushima are much worse than they thought.  Now radioactive rain is falling in Oklahoma.  And it’s all just a drop in the bucket.  What’s worse, contaminating crops with radioactive rain, or not growing crops at all?

“Aug 6, 2011 Oklahoma City First Rain Since Drought Started.

Rain stopped long enough to go outside and see what came down in the rain. Got rain sample from top of plastic trash bin. Started raining again toward the end of the video. I had to stop and get out of it. You can come to your own conclusion of what is going on in this video.”

US: Army Approves Atheism-Themed Concert at Fort Bragg, Fools Rush In

08/08/2011 Leave a comment

Psalms 53:1, “… The fool hath said in his heart, ‘There is no God’ …”

By TOM BREEN – “RALEIGH, N.C. — A concert event organized by atheist, agnostic and other non-theist soldiers has been cleared by the Army to take place next spring at Fort Bragg, concert organizers and a spokesman for the post said Monday.

Organizers planned to hold the Rock Beyond Belief event this year, but they canceled after saying Bragg leadership was not providing the same support it gave to an evangelical Christian concert last fall.

Supporters hailed the Army’s decision.

‘You know those goosebumps you get when your favorite song hits that sweet spot? I got those,’ said Sgt. Justin Griffith, main organizer of the event and the military director of American Atheists, in an email. ‘I was overcome with joy and a sense of vindication.’

The plan is to hold the event on March 31 at the main parade field at Fort Bragg, where the Christian-themed Rock the Fort concert was held. Famed atheist Richard Dawkins is scheduled to appear, along with musicians, speakers and other entertainment.” Read more.

The Barack Obrush-Off: Obama Calls US AAA Nation Despite AA+ Rating, Investors Flee

08/08/2011 Leave a comment

“WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama on Monday essentially dismissed the first-ever downgrade of the U.S. credit rating, trying to reassure investors and the public that the nation’s leaders need only show more ‘common sense and compromise’ to tame a staggering accumulation of debt.

Seeking to demonstrate command in a volatile economic climate, Obama said he hoped the decision by Standard & Poor’s would at least give Congress a renewed sense of urgency to tackle debt problems. He said that must be done mainly by taking on the politically difficult issues of reforming taxes and entitlement programs in the coming months.

In his first public comments on the credit downgrade, which S&P announced late Friday, Obama said Washington had the power to fix its own political dysfunction.

‘Markets will rise and fall,’ he said. ‘But this is the United States of America. No matter what some agency may say, we’ve always been and always will be a triple-A country.'” Read more.

U.S. downgrade hits world stocks as investors flee – “The fallout from Standard & Poor’s downgrade of the United States pushed world stocks to their lowest level in nearly a year on Monday and drove investors to the safety of gold and bonds. Strange as it may be, investors sought shelter in the asset that was downgraded — choosing U.S. government bonds for their liquidity and perceived high quality. Investors shunned stocks and commodities, struggling to discern the effects of the downgrade, which could hit various components of the financial sector, from mortgage lenders to municipal issuers and insurers.” Read more.

Iran Planning to Retaliate Against the US for Sabotage Against Its Nuclear Program, ‘Will Be Taught the Mother of All Lessons’

08/08/2011 2 comments

By Reza Kahlili – “Iran is planning to retaliate against the United States for the sabotage against its nuclear program, according to an editorial in the Kayhan newspaper, the mouthpiece of Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

The U.S. has all of its infrastructure connected to the Internet, the editorial says, and as a result, “it is constantly worried about an unknown player, who they will never be able to identify … sitting in some corner of the world who would launch an attack on a sector of (the Americans’) foundations. They will be taught the mother of all lessons.”

Specifically, Iran is looking into launching a cyber attack against U.S. electrical grid systems.

Iranian officials are furious over the July 23 assassination of nuclear scientist Dariush Rezai-Nejad, who was working on electric detonators for the Iranian nuclear program, which can be used on missiles or nuclear bombs. He was the third Iranian nuclear scientist assassinated since 2009.

The frustration over acts of sabotage started with the computer virus Stuxnet in which 1,000 of Iran’s centrifuges at the Natanzs nuclear facility were destroyed and had to be replaced. The virus also attacked the Bushehr nuclear power plant, which has resulted in repeated delays in it joining the country’s power grid.

The July 29 Kayhan editorial threatening America with retaliation said that during the last month, the United States has published two strategy documents regarding cyberspace, both of which emphasize the ever-evolving nature of Internet communications.” Read more.

US: Churches to Read Torah in Response to Other ‘Churches’ That Read From the Qur’an

08/08/2011 Leave a comment

By Gil Ronen – “Churches in the U.S. are preparing to read sections of the Torah on Sunday, August 13, in a show of solidarity with Israel and the Jewish people.

The move is a response to an initiative by a group of churches that read from the Muslim Koran during their services on Sunday, June 26. According to the Faith Shared project, which initiated the Koran reading, 66 churches from 32 states joined that effort.

In an effort to counter the move, a grassroots movement of churches across America is preparing to read from sections of the Torah during their services.

According to Pastor Mark Biltz, one of the pastors leading the move, while Jewish communities around the world read the Shema prayer, Christian communities will join them in solidarity. ‘There is a special bond between Jews and Christians, as both hold as the greatest commandment to love the L-rd their G-d with all their heart,’ Pastor Biltz explained. ‘So I’ve also posted the Shema in as many languages as I could find on our website so everyone could see it.’

‘I am asking in a show of solidarity with the G-d of Israel, the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob that churches/organizations join together in one accord and read from the Torah during their Saturday/Sunday services this coming August 13 and 14,’ he wrote.

Biltz went on to say that ‘The suggested reading from this Torah portion is the greatest commandment, found in Deuteronomy 6:4-9, that we love the Lord with all our heart, soul and strength.’

The pastor is referring to the verses after the one-line Shema prayer. The reading will obviously not be from a parchment hand-written Torah scroll.

‘It is known in Judaism as the Shema and begins with asking Israel to hear and obey the Lord and realize He is the one and only G-d. This date was chosen because the Jewish people all over the world will be reading that portion on that weekend. So Christians will literally be joining a chorus of voices proclaiming on earth and to the heavens that the G-d of Israel is the One and Only G-d and that we are to love Him above all others!! This weekend also is the weekend right after the Ninth of Av and begins the readings of speaking comfort to Jerusalem.'” Read more.

Virginia: Red Tide Algae Blooms Hitting Chesapeake Bay

08/08/2011 Leave a comment

By Scott Harper – “They have become sad summer rites in local waters that feed the Chesapeake Bay: algae blooms, also known as red tides or brown tides. And once again, they have arrived to stain creeks and rivers, frighten swimmers and threaten fish and oyster stocks.

On Friday, the blooms thrived in patches across much of the Lafayette River in Norfolk – great swaths of mahogany and brick-red streaks, looking like someone either spilled oil or dropped a huge load of paint overboard.

And then, suddenly, the unhealthy coloring stopped and the water again turned its normal shade of light green – healthy and sick, side by side, even touching.

From a boat piloted by Chris Moore, a scientist with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, the Lafayette almost seemed its normal self on an August afternoon, with people out fishing, sailing and tending to their riverfront yards.

But Moore knows better.

‘This is a sign that we need to improve our water quality,’ Moore said after cruising through an especially red and thick blanket, just off Colonial Place, a low-lying waterfront neighborhood.

Blooms are modern phenomenons that typically occur in the lower Chesapeake in July or August, then hang around until fall, unwelcome and unpredictable. The state Health Department warns swimmers and fishermen to avoid darkly colored waters.” Read more.
