Illinois: Largest Outbreak To Date Of ‘Nightmare Bacteria’ Worries Health Experts

01/08/2014 Leave a comment

Matthew 24:6-7, “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.  For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places…”

By Caroline Porter, The Wall Street Journal – “The largest outbreak to date of one strain of what authorities have called ‘nightmare bacteria’ is adding to concerns about the spread of such drug-resistant bugs.

The outbreak, centered on a hospital in a Chicago suburb, has infected 44 people in Illinois over the past year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said. The bug, known as carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae, bears a rare enzyme that breaks down antibiotics.

‘This is a huge cluster,’ said Alex Kallen, a medical officer with the CDC and supervisor for the Illinois outbreak investigation, noting that only 97 cases of the infection have been reported to the agency since 2009.

The superbug, which typically lives in the intestines and is part of a large family of bacteria, can be spread via fecal matter. It isn’t typically transmitted by casual contact outside hospitals.” Read more.

The superbug, called methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus strain 398, or MRSA ST398, was first identified in an infant in the Netherlands in 1994 and traced back to her family’s pigs. Now, researchers are starting to see more serious infections and some of the cases reveal no direct link to livestock, said Lance B.

Matthew 24:12, “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.”

By Michael Snyder, InvestmentWatch – “Hearts in America are getting colder even faster than the weather is.  Sometimes it is hard to believe how twisted and deranged many Americans have become.  In order for a society to function efficiently, people need to be able to have a basic level of trust in one another.  Unfortunately, we are rapidly getting to the point in America where it is becoming very difficult to trust anyone that you do not know personally.  As you will see below, the United States is rapidly becoming a cesspool of liars, thieves, murderers, perverts and psychopaths.  Please do not allow any young children to read this article.  All of this material is from mainstream news reports, but a lot of it is too disturbing for young kids to be exposed to.  The reason why I write about this stuff is because there is never going to be any hope of a turnaround in this country until we take a good, long look in the mirror and admit how far we have fallen.  Yes, a lot of these things are almost too horrible to talk about, but as a nation we must understand how bad things have become.  There is evidence of extreme social decay all around us, and it is steadily eating away at the very foundations of our Republic.

The following are excerpts from 12 recent mainstream news reports.  Once again, let me warn you that some of these crimes are so twisted that it is very difficult to even read about them.  But this is how you get an addict that has reached ‘rock bottom’ to change.  You show them how their behavior is literally destroying them and the people around them.  And without a doubt, America is being systematically destroyed by all of this evil.  The following are 12 signs of extreme social decay in America that are almost too horrible to talk about… Read more…

Retired Military Scientist Exposes Fukushima Cover-Up, ‘Will Become A Planetary Problem, Not Just A Pacific Problem’

01/08/2014 1 comment

Dr. Richard Davis: “Remember, there were multiple reactors … that blew up at Fukushima. They all had different kinds of isotopes that were involved — the MOX 3 obviously with plutonium which is a deadly, deadly material — so we have a mixture of toxins and poisons that are being emitted into the atmosphere, under the ground, seeping into the ground water, and now being flushed out into the Pacific ocean with the cooling that’s going on there in an unrestricted, unrestrained way. And it doesn’t surprise me that you’re seeing this plume now finally washing up on the shores of the Western part of the United States, Canada, and eventually this will become a global phenomenon as these sea waters mix and cross the equator and move into the Southern Hemisphere … Eventually Fukushima will become a planetary problem, not just a Pacific problem …

It hasn’t stopped. It’s continued. These meltdowns that occurred are ongoing and it is significantly bigger than Chernobyl …”

‘Horrible’: 100,000 Bats Fall Dead From The Sky In Australia, Trees And Earth Littered With Dead Creatures

01/08/2014 Leave a comment

By Jonathan Pearlman, The Telegraph – “About 100,000 bats have fallen from the sky and died during a heatwave in Australia that has left the trees and earth littered with dead creatures.

In scenes likened to ‘an Alfred Hitchock thought bubble’, a heatwave across the north-east state of Queensland in recent days caused mass deaths of flying foxes from an estimated 25 colonies.

‘It’s a horrible, cruel way to die,’ a conservation worker, Louise Saunders, told The Courier Mail.

‘Anything over 43 degrees [Celsius, 109F] and they just fall. We’re just picking up those that are just not coping and are humanely euthanising what we can.’

Health experts have warned residents not to touch the dead creatures amid concerns about the spread of virus or bites and scratches from bats that may still be alive. At least 16 people have been are receiving antiviral treatment after coming into close contact with a bat.

‘If you find a bat it is very important not to touch it because of the risk of infection with Australian bat lyssavirus,’ the state’s chief health officer, Dr Jeannette Young, told APN.

‘Some bats may appear dead but they are not and when people have attempted to remove them they have been bitten or scratched. Bats also have a claw on their wings which is a frequent cause of injury.’

The stench from the rotting carcasses has begun to disturb residents of Brisbane and large towns.” Read more.

Libya: American Teacher Shot Dead By Suspected Islamists For Sharing His Faith In Christ With Muslims

01/08/2014 1 comment

Revelation 14:12-13, “Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, ‘Write: ‘Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.’  ‘Yes,’ says the Spirit, ‘that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them.”

By BosNewsLife – “A month after an American teacher was gunned down in Libya friends and family members are convinced that he was killed because of his Christian faith.

The body of Ronald Thomas Smith II, who taught chemistry at the International School in the port city of Benghazi, was found December 5, near the residential compound that housed him and other teachers in an upscale neighborhood.

He had been at school in the morning but went home to change his clothes and go jogging at midday, said the school’s director Adel al-Mansouri. The area is also the site of the U.S. diplomatic mission, where the U.S. Ambassador and three other Americans were killed last year.

The 33-year-old teacher, arrived in turbulent Libya eighteen months ago, after serving on staff at the Austin Stone Community Church, a Southern Baptist congregation in the United States.

The ‘much beloved’ teacher wanted to be ‘a blessing to the Libyan people,’ church leaders said in a statement…

While no group claimed responsibility for his death, Christians said Smith’s faith in Christ, and his talking about it among Muslims, seems to be the main was the motive behind the slaying.

Additionally, Islamic militants had demanded the kidnapping of Americans living in Libya.

‘Ronnie’s greatest desire was for peace and prosperity in Libya and for the people of Libya to have the joy of knowing God through Christ,’ local church leaders added.

Smith, who graduated in 2006 from the University of Texas in Austin with a master’s degree in chemistry, moved to Benghazi with his wife, Anita, and young son. His wife and son had gone home for Christmas, but he reportedly stayed behind to help students with final exams for the semester.

Author Raymond Ibrahim, who wrote ‘Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians’ said in comments published by the website of Christian broadcaster CBN that the killing is part of a wider Islamic campaign against devoted American Christians talking about their faith with Muslims.” Read more.

Italy: Muslim Man Terrorizes And Threatens To Kill Ex-Girlfriend, ‘I’m An Arab … I’ll Cut Off Your Head!’

01/08/2014 Leave a comment

Maybe his ex-girlfriend believed in Scriptures other than the Qur’an …

Qur’an Sura 8:12b, “… terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.”

Adnkronos – “Police on Friday arrested an unemployed Tunisian immigrant on suspicion of stalking his Italian ex-girlfriend for nearly two years and threatening to cut off her head, reports said.

Police arrested 36-year-old Valid Smiri, as he tried to climb over a gate and enter his ex-girlfriend’s apartment building in the town of Quartu, near Cagliari, the Unione Sarda newspaper reported.

Witnesses said Smiri was shouting: ‘I’ll kill you, I am an Arab, you don’t know me. Even if they arrest me, I’ll come back and kill you. I’ll cut off your head!’

As police led him away, Smiri also railed against the Italian government.

The 47-year-old woman ended a three-month relationship with Smiri in 2012, a decision he had refused to accept.

She reported Smiri to police three times after he kept bombarding her with phone-calls and text messages begging her to get back together with him or else, investigators said.

He also hung around outside the woman’s apartment building and hurled insults at her and threatened to kill her each time he saw her go in or out, saying she was ‘his’, according to investigators.” Source – Adnkronos.

A Kingdom Divided: Al-Qaeda Terror Group Orders Members To Kill Rival Al-Qaeda Group Members

01/08/2014 1 comment

So much for being merciful to one another. That verse of the Qur’an must have been abrogated, too. Division. Dysfunction. Destruction. Where would Islam be without it? …

Qur’an Sura 48:29, “Mohammed is [Allah’s] apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another.”

Al Arabiya – “Al-Qaeda group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) on Tuesday urged its fighters to ‘crush’ other rebel groups in Syria, in an audio message from the group’s spokesman.

Abu Mohammad al-Adnani called on ISIL fighters in Syria to ‘crush them (the rebels) totally and kill the conspiracy at birth,’ warning opposition fighters that ‘none of you will remain, and we will make of you an example to all those who think of following the same path,’ AFP reported.

ISIL’s threat came hours after a rival al-Qaeda group said it has joined forces with other rebel groups in fighting ISIL.

Al-Nusra Front leader Abu Mohammad al-Golani said in an audio recording that ‘high-level’ fighting erupted between his group and ISIL on Tuesday.

He blamed the fighting on what he said were ‘mistakes’ made by ISIL, such as the arrest of a Nusra commander in Raqqa.

In his message, Golani urged all rebel groups to unite against President Bashar al-Assad regime.

‘This unfortunate situation prompted us to make this initiative to save the ground from loss. This initiative calls for the formation of a legitimate committee from all recognized factions with an independent leadership,’ he said.

Golani also noted that all infighting in the groups must end and an exchange of prisoners should take place, adding that rebels should focus their efforts on fighting Assad’s forces and not fighting each other.

Divisions within al-Qaeda

Divisions within al-Qaeda appeared in November 2013, when al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri appointed al-Nusra Front jihadists to carry the network’s banner in Syria and ordered the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant to disband.

Zawahiri’s remarks confirmed a written order issued in June that has so far gone unheeded.

Zawahiri said that al-Nusra Front was the jihadist group’s only branch in Syria, tasked with reporting ‘to the general command,’ and will no longer operate under the banner of al-Qaeda’s Iraq affiliate.

‘The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) is to be abolished, while the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) remains functioning,’ he said.” Read more.

The dead militants are all reportedly non-Syrian members of ISIS. Al Qaida militants have executed overnight 50 Syrian activists they had detained in Aleppo, activists in the northern Syrian city told ANSA on Tuesday in a Skype interview. The prisoners were killed at a former eye hospital in Aleppo, the activists said. The sources said the executions were carried out by members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, an al Qaida-linked militant group in Syria which has been attacked by local insurgents over the past few days.” Read more.

Egypt: Christian Man Shot Outside Church By Suspected Islamists, Dies After Hospitals Refuse Treatment

Qur’an Sura 2:191-193, “And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-Muslims] … fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah.”

By BosNewsLife – “A young Coptic Christian man has died from gunshot injuries in Egypt’s capital Cairo, after three local hospitals turned him away, Christians said Tuesday, January 6.

Ihab Ghattas, 23, reportedly died on New Year’s Eve from a gunshot wound to the head because of ‘negligence’ as the hospitals which refused to treat him, said Copts activist group Maspero Youth Union (MYU).

He was shot outside Mar Girgis (St George’s) Church in the Ain Shams area of Cairo after celebrating mass by suspected supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood movement, MYU said in published remarks.

Ghattas was allegedly denied access in one hospital because it was deemed not to be an emergency, while another cited ‘a lack of beds.’

The third hospital refused to treat him due to the absence of an intensive care unit, the MYU said…

A fourth hospital, St. Peter’s in Heliopolis, admitted him but he died soon afterwards, news reports said.

However doctors could no safe his life as he had been ‘bleeding for three hours’, Christians said. MYU has demanded an investigation, but it was not immediately clear Tuesday, January 6, when and if authorities will search for the attackers.

Muslim Brotherhood supporters reportedly fired birdshot at St. George’s Church, after which a group of young people from the church, including Ghattas, had joined police in defending it.

News of the latest killing overshadowed Coptic Christmas, which was celebrated in Cairo and other areas Tuesday January 7 by Egypt’s Copts, who comprise 10 percent of Egypt’s population…

The tensions came before the trial was scheduled to resume Wednesday, January 7, against Egypt’s democratically-elected President Mohamed Morsi, who was ousted in a military coup last July.” Read more.

Sun Unleashes Powerful X-Class Solar Flare Towards Earth, And More May Come

01/08/2014 1 comment

By Alan Boyle, NBC News – “The sun erupted with a powerful solar flare on Tuesday, disrupting radio traffic and sending a blast of electrically charged particles our way. And there may be more blasts to come.

The X1.2-class flare was recorded by sun-observing satellites, including NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, at about 2:32 p.m. ET. X-class flares are the strongest category of solar outbursts, although X1.2 is toward the category’s low end. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Space Weather Prediction Center said the flare sparked a strong radio blackout.

For days, space weather forecasters have been bracing themselves for solar eruptions from a large active sunspot region called AR1944. This region has now turned to face Earth directly, which means strong solar flares are likely to send storms of charged particles — also known as coronal mass ejections, or CMEs — heading straight for us.

Strong solar storms can damage satellites and electrical grids. One such outburst in 1989 knocked out power for a wide swath of Quebec. And don’t get us started about the superstorm of 1859! …” Read more.

New York: Muslim Tenant Beheads Landlord At NYC Apartment

Islam and beheading. You can’t think of one without thinking about the other …

Hadith – Al Bukhari, 2977, “I have been made victorious with terror” – The ‘Prophet’ Of Islam, Mohammed

Qur’an Sura 8:12b, “… terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.”

NBC 4 New York – “A 27-year-old man has been charged with murder after the landlord of his Brooklyn building was found nearly decapitated in the basement Tuesday, police say.

Rasel Siddiquee was arrested early Wednesday in connection with the death of Mahuddin Mahmud, a 57-year-old businessman and father of three who was found with his head nearly cut off and his face burned in the basement of a building he owned, according to the NYPD.

Police found Mahmud’s body after getting a 911 call about an assault at the building on McDonald Avenue in Kensington. Siddiquee lived in the basement, police say.

Family and friends say Mahmud, a Bangladeshi immigrant, came to the U.S. decades ago and worked hard to build a computer software training business. A childhood friend told NBC 4 New York that Mahmud believed so much in the American dream that his wedding portrait hangs next to an American flag.” Read more.
