The Arctic is believed to hold up to 25 percent of the planet’s untapped oil and gas supplies, and Russia, the U.S., Canada, Denmark and Norway have all been trying to assert jurisdiction over parts of the territory. Russia’s had submitted a bid for vast Arctic territories that could contain large quantities of oil and gas to the United Nations. In 2007, Moscow staked a symbolic claim to the Arctic seabed by dropping a canister containing the Russian flag on the ocean floor from a submarine at the North Pole. The Kremlin also has moved to beef up Russian military forces in the Arctic. The effort has included the restoration of a Soviet-era military base on the New Siberian Islands and other military outposts in the Arctic. Moscow has justified the activity by claiming that the new facilities are vital to protect shipping routes that link Europe to the Pacific Rim. Earlier this year, the military conducted sweeping maneuvers in the Arctic that involved 38,000 servicemen, more than 50 surface ships and submarines and 110 aircraft. As part of the drills, the military demonstrated its capability to quickly beef up its forces on the Arctic
The reasons alzo the US and Canada they now are telling Ukraine to join NATO and lose Russia.. Russia’s energy and over the next decade Canada’s Alberta Crude and the U.S. production of shale oil and gas rises and so even the United States becomes a major energy exporter. By 2020, according to administration estimates, the United States could be able to export more than 90 billion cubic meters of LNG annually, or about half of the gas Russia now supplies to Europe. There it is.. Russia is the second-largest producer of dry natural gas and third-largest liquid fuels producer in the world.
A surge of light oil from North Dakota and Texas is cutting into the earnings of Canadians who turn heavy oil sands into a lighter crude that fetches more from refiners. Producers in Alberta, home of the country’s greatest reserves, upgraded 20 percent less of the region’s crude in October than four years earlier, according to the province’s energy regulator. Two of five plants under construction were canceled and the province’s upgrading and refining capacity fell in 2013 for the first time in three decades. Companies are now sending record amounts of the heavy stuff on pipelines and trains to refineries in the U.S. Midwest and Gulf Coast, Projects including Suncor Energy Inc. (SU)’s Voyageur joint venture with France’s Total SA (FP) and Value Creation Inc.’s BA Energy Heartland were abandoned. Global oil prices, down by more than 50 percent since June, will make upgrading projects even more challenging because the price difference between heavy and light crude is narrower, U.S. output has risen 70 percent in the past five years as producers used horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing to tap into previously inaccessible shale rock layers thousands of feet below the Earth’s surface. Most of the increase has been in light, sweet crude, similar quality Alberta upgraders get from processing heavy, thick oil sands. The rising flows south of Canadian crude are drawing a backlash in Alberta from labor groups, who say jobs, not just oil, are being exported. Alberta’s 4.6 percent unemployment rate, second lowest in Canada after Saskatchewan, may increase after oil’s 55 percent drop in six months prompted some producers to curtail future investment. “Building upgraders in Alberta is seen by the industry as uneconomic,” Dinara Millington, a vice president at the Canadian Energy Research Institute, said in an e-mail Jan. 13. “The U.S. refining market is being flooded with the light crude and they wouldn’t necessarily want our light stuff.”
Do also note Ukraine’s, Kiev’s own energy payment debt and is largely of its own making. Its economy was for decades and is hugely inefficient even in the use of energy, lacking either a realistic cost structure or the means to meter usage. Furthermore, its energy industry and regulatory system are corrupt, an inheritance of they many past previous corrupt regimes that continued to follow Soviet-style practices long after the USSR had disappeared. In fact, their past governments had close ties to organized crime even now.. Kiev’s past and present governments have done too little to break the power of the country’s indigenous energy mafia. Kiev needs to clean up its act if it wants to Join the EU. However, it will likely still take a long time even decades more.. in part because many Ukrainians will not want to give up the benefits they receive from the present inefficient and corrupt system. That still won’t solve any of Ukraine’s major problems, nor the use of any of the US military forces. Kiev’s use of volunteer paramilitaries to stamp out the Russian-backed Donetsk and Luhansk “people’s republics”, proclaimed in eastern Ukraine in March, should send a shiver down Europe’s spine. Recently formed battalions such as Donbas, Dnipro and Azov, with several thousand men under their command, are officially under the control of the interior ministry but their financing is murky, their training inadequate and their ideology often alarming. The Azov men use the neo-Nazi Wolfsangel (Wolf’s Hook) symbol on their banner and members of the battalion are openly white supremacists, or anti-Semites.
Canada the US puppet follows the US lead.

The news media should stay with reporting the news, facts and not rather too often trying to brain wash others, trying to enforce their hidden or unhidden agendas, or presenting their too often false, distorting, sensationalized presentations.. If any internet News media or Internet site goes overboard with their censorship too they can be sure the reader, users, the people will go elsewhere en masse and their site will suffer as a result..
These days people have million of choices where to go on the net these days.. and can post what they want there too.. These days it is not just the cops, crooks, Jews, Blacks. Muslims, Politicians, governments, Lieberals, or whoever that only has the right to speak and to be heard.. we all still do and anywhere too.
We already can know that the New York Times, major western media lie and lie..
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is one of the world’s major sources of instability.
1- Israel currently has 262 Jewish-only settlements and ‘outposts’ built on confiscated Palestinian land. Palestinians do not have any settlements on Israeli land.
2- The Israeli unemployment rate is 5.8%, while the Palestinian unemployment in the West Bank is 22.5% and 41% in Gaza.
3- 133 Israeli children have been killed by Palestinians and 2,060 Palestinian children have been killed by Israelis since September 29, 2000
4 -1,195 Israelis and at least 9,826 Palestinians have been killed since September 29, 2000.
5- 11,018 Israelis and 71,841 Palestinians have been injured since September 29, 2000.
6 – During Fiscal Year 2014, the U.S. is providing Israel with at least $8.5 million per day in military aid and $0 in military aid to the Palestinians.
7 – Israel has been targeted by at least 77 UN resolutions and the Palestinians have been targeted by 1
8 – 0 Israelis are being held prisoner by Palestinians, while 6,500 Palestinians are currently imprisoned by Israel.
9- 0 Israeli homes have been demolished by Palestinians and at least 28,000 Palestinian homes have been demolished by Israel since 1967
And the reality is that because of the death of Jesus Christ on the cross the New Covenant next replaces the Mosaic Covenant, which is commonly referred to as the “Old Covenant”. All of the The early Christian CHURCH theologians saw the New Covenant in Christ as a NEW replacement for the Mosaic Covenant for most of the last hundreds of years. (Matthew 21:33-45), addressed Israel, the Jews of that time, “the chief priests and the Pharisees”, “‘When therefore the lord of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those farmers?’ They told him, ‘He will miserably destroy those miserable men, and will lease out the vineyard to other farmers, who will give him the fruit in its season.”
The USA President Obama had lied to us all, for he and his followers in his first attemtp to be elected President had said to all that he was a Christian.. next he said he was a Muslim. but you cannot be both what a big liar he really is.. you cannot trust a Liar.. Islam the devil inpsired, false religion has no part in Christianity as Islam rejects both the deity of Christ (Sura 5:17) and His death on the Cross (Sura 4:157-158). You need to get as far away from Islam as possible.. The fact is that no imam is about to bring a Bible into a mosque and suggest that our God is their god. For the Muslim cleric, the only acceptable agreement that both religions are somehow equals is if doing so presents the perceived image of a kinder, gentler, politically correct Islam and if doing so furthers the cause of Islam. The Muslim practice of deception of the infidel (that’s everyone outside of Islam) knows no boundaries. This is called “Kitman” and “Taqiyya.” Kitman, or half truths meant to mislead an infidel, and Taqiyya, which is complete deception of unbelievers, are acceptable tactics – as long as Islam is the winner in the end.
Some correctly suggest that both Islam and Christianity have Abrahamic roots and that both religions teach morals, ethics and monotheism, the similarities quickly disintegrate with a careful study of either the Bible or the Qur’an. An examination of the deities worshiped by the two religions immediately brings into question how any thoughtful, biblically-minded Christian could ascertain Islam’s chief edict – that we all worship the same God. * Allah is NOT Jehovah * The Jesus of Islam is NOT the Jesus of the Bible * The Bible does NOT harmonize with the Qur’an * Salvation by faith is NOT available through Islam * Chrislam is neither Christian nor Muslim

– Its is undeniable reality that most of Churches today, at least over half, are still often cultural, social groups, not real Christian Churches, and that includes both the white and black, ethnic churches.
– Obama election shows deep racial divide in church or the deep theological divides? or what is accepted in one denomination can not be accepted in others. The liberal churches clearly voted for Obama.
As posted on the net.
Obama election shows deep racial or a religious divide in church supposedly says ” The Associated Press – NEW YORK (AP) – The barrier-crossing election of Barack Obama did little to bridge the deep racial divide in American churches. In fact, some clergy say it has only served to underscore their differences. While nonwhite Christians voted overwhelmingly for Obama, most white Christians backed John McCain, according to exit polls. The Rev. Al Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, the denomination’s flagship school, said white evangelicals backed McCain because of his opposition to abortion rights, not because of the race of either candidate. According to Associated Press exit polls, 34 percent of white Protestants voted for Obama, while 65 percent went with McCain. Obama won the overall Roman Catholic vote, but white Catholics backed McCain by a slim majority, 52 percent to 47 percent. Among white Christians, the racial gap was most pronounced with evangelicals: 74 percent backed McCain, 24 percent backed Obama. The pattern is not new and fits the larger trend of white voters overall, the majority of whom voted for McCain..” ignores the fact the white Christians tend to be from the more traditional established Christian churches.
– Religious White people’s racial values was, is not the only issue for many of them now still not supporting Obama. Many white people still also had voted for Obama, and note this that many white people, rightfully or wrongfully, oppose Obama’s socialism which they tend to seem to see as as another form of communism too. Many religious persons still do see Obama rather rightfully as a non Christian
-Also the Black Christians and clearly wrongfully had supported their own race over adequate religious values for Obama’s reality of being a true Christian is still very much debatable. He supports drinking alcohol, gays, abortion and who knows what, and he is the first political candidate to be addressed as an Anti Christ by many because of his inadequate Christian beliefs, or because he is a non Christian?

“”We worship an awesome God in the blue states,” Barack Obama declared during his 2004 Democratic convention keynote. Thunderous applause greeted that line, in part because Democrats felt frustrated that they’d been unfairly cast as a secular or even anti-religion party, and by the political dominance of religious conservatives.”
The Rise of the Religious Left. But clearly Obama still did not get the evangelical votes.
Ten Faith Factors for Election Night
2. Will Palin Turn Out the “Religious Right”? — By picking Sarah Palin, John McCain gambled that she’d be able to rev up the evangelical “base.” Even as her popularity has fallen generally, evangelicals still love her (some even believing she was sent to battle the anti-Christ.) Assuming most conservative evangelicals vote for McCain, the second question is: how many will show up? Point of reference: white evangelicals accounted for 23% of the electorate in 2004.
3. Do Midwestern Evangelicals Split With Their Brethren? — Recent polls have showed Obama trailing badly among evangelicals in Florida and Colorado but doing quite well with them in Michigan, Ohio and
Pennsylvania. If he succeeds there, he may have tapped into regional differences in style, theology and politics and launch a new era in faith-and-politics punditry, in which we no longer talk about “the evangelical vote” as a geographically uniform phenomenon.4. Will Catholics Ignore Their Bishops? – The overall Catholic vote has gone with the popular vote winner every election since 1968. Catholic Bishops have been urging Catholic voters to vote for pro-life candidates but a majority of Catholic voters are now pro-choice so it remains to be seen what influence the church will have. (Obama is also winning with the 100-year-old-nuns bloc) Another factor in Obama’s favor: a higher percentage of the Catholic vote will be Latino this year. Last election, George W. Bush won the Catholic 52%-46%.
5. Can Obama Finally Bowl a Strike With Skeptical White Catholics? – During the primaries, Obama did poorly with white Catholics, often working class ethnics or their offspring. Remember his feeble attempt to curry favor through bowling? They tend to be culturally conservative and haven’t voted for a Democrat since 1996. On the other hand, they’re especially concerned about the economy this year, and Joe Biden has been trying to bond with them as a fellow “cultural Catholics.” Point of reference: In 2004, Bush won 56% of white Catholics, Kerry 43%.
6. Will Whitebread Protestants Back the Black Guy? – Recent polls show Democrats gaining with a group that had leaned Republican for most of the past few decades – Mainline Protestants. It appears that while Sarah Palin energized evangelicals, she may have alienated some Mainliners. In 2004, they went for President George W. Bush 54%-46%.
7. Will Latino Protestants Vote Their Values or the Pocketbook? – One positive trend for Obama will likely be the shift of Latinos from the Republican side, where they resided in 2004, to the Democrats. The hidden religious story: most of the shift is driven by Latino Protestants. Many are evangelical and liked Bush’s Christian faith and his conservative positions on social issues (gay marriage, abortion) but have shifted to Obama because of the economy and concerns about immigration.
8. How Will the Kinda-Sorta Religious Vote? – In recent elections, the most religious you were, the more likely you were to vote Republican. This is known as the God Gap, which will still certainly exist. But watch for two things: among weekly churchoers how big is McCain’s margin? Bush won that group 61%-39% Second, Kerry last time beat Bush among more occasional churchgoers 53%-47%. Will Obama increase that margin?
9. Will Jews Schlep to Republican Side? – This only really matters in
Florida, and even there it doesn’t matter as much as you’d think (Jews made up 5% of the electorate there in 2004). Early polls had Obama struggling among Jews – in part because of fears about his former church’s connections to Louis Farrakhan — but more recently he’s caught up, possibly because Jews fear that Sarah Palin is an extreme evangelical. Or possibly the Sarah Silverman factor. Jews reportedly went about 75%-25% for Kerry.10. Will the GOP Become the ROP? – Will Republicans become the Religiously Oriented Party? In 2004, white evangelicals made up 36% of Bush voters.
Will that go up or down? If it becomes an even more dominant force within the party, how will that shape either the way McCain governs if he wins or, if he loses, how the Republicans re-invent themselves.
Carla Hinton Religion Editor http://blog.newsok.com/religionandvalues/2008/10/31/389
so what do you say about the faith factor…
Though the economy clearly was the defining issue of the election, Obama forged a new coalition by luring millions of religious left voters who had avoided Democrats in recent years.
He narrowed the God Gap. Bush beat Kerry among weekly church-goers by 61%-39%. McCain is beating Obama 54%-44% Most of that gain appears to have come from Protestants rather than Catholics
He won Catholics back. Early exit polls indicate he won 54% of the Catholic vote compared to 45% for John McCain. George W. Bush won the Catholic vote 52%-46%. Most of those gains came from Catholics who don’t attend mass weekly.
He also improved among white Catholics, according to the early exit polls. Bush got 56%-43% As of now, McCain lead by just 51%-49% This was despite an aggressive push by more than 50 Bishops to encourage Catholics to focus on abortion as the central issue.
He man real gainst among Evangelicals. Evangelicals and Born Again Christians made up a greater portion of the electorate this year than last election but that didn’t all accrue to McCain’s benefit, as predict. Obama improved slightly on a national level, getting 25% compared to Kerry’s 21%
But far more important, he made significant progress in the pivotal rustbelt states that won him the election. For instance, evangelicals flooded the polls in Ohio and Obama significantly improved on Kerry’s showing.
He attracted more Mainline Protestants – Though shifting toward the center in recent years, mainline Protestants — once a core of the Republican party — – still went for the Republicans in 2004. The exit polls didn’t ask specifically about mainline Protestants but it appears Obama improved slightly with this group..
He energized the lightly religious. Though secular voters already voted Democratic, they did so by an even bigger margin this year. Even more important, a quarter of the electorate says they go to worship services but only a few times a year. Kerry won that group with 54%-45%. Obama won 61%-38%

Five candidates running in Saskatchewan’s April 4 election have had impaired driving convictions, including three from the Saskatchewan Party and two from the Saskatchewan NDP.
Sask. deputy premier Don McMorris resigns after impaired-driving charge. Impaired driving still number one killer on Sask. roads “I am very disappointed in his actions. Drinking and driving risks and ruins lives and is completely unacceptable,” said Wall. Premier Brad Wall said In February, SGI’s annual report on traffic accidents in Saskatchewan showed the total number of collisions involving alcohol in 2014 was the lowest it had been in five years. However, the number of fatal accidents involving alcohol didn’t follow that trend, with 17 more people killed in crashes involving alcohol in 2014 than in 2013.
Newly elected Liberal Member of Parliament comtted himself to rehab.. and dream on if you think it works.. Rookie Newfoundland MP Seamus O’Regan back from rehab, 40 days sober: ‘Alcohol was becoming a part of my daily life’. The newly elected Liberal MP sought treatment for an alcohol problem said Monday he is “reporting back for duty” in Ottawa. “Over the last year or two, alcohol was becoming a part of my daily life. I regularly had several drinks at the end of most days. Sometimes more than several drinks,” Now why did O’Regan not inform voters of his personal issues before the Oct. 19 vote. And why Trudeau did not require his friend to tackle his addiction prior to becoming a candidate. There are too many people in false denial who are slaves to alcohol or are guilty of other substance abuse.
OTTAWA — Fisheries Minister Hunter Tootoo has stepped down from cabinet and left the Liberal caucus to deal with addiction issues.Tootoo was a territorial politician for 14 years, and served for a time as speaker of the Nunavut legislative assembly. “Over the last year or two, alcohol was becoming a part of my daily life. I regularly had several drinks at the end of most days. Sometimes more than several drinks,” I was far from my best self.” “Effective immediately, the Honourable Hunter Tootoo has resigned from his position as minister of fisheries, oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard,” Trudeau said in the statement. “He will also be leaving the Liberal caucus.”Tootoo is a cousin of NHL player Jordin Tootoo, who recently authored a book detailing not only his struggles in the NHL, but his continuing battle with alcohol addiction.
(1 Cor 11:28 KJV) But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. 30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
(Prov 3:33 KJV) The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.
Jesus himself had said that professing to be a Christian is not enough,
Matt 3:8 Bring forth fruit that is consistent with repentance [let your lives prove your change of heart];
Gal 5:23 Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law [that can bring a charge].
Matt 7:16 You will fully recognize them by their fruits. Do people pick grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every healthy (sound) tree bears good fruit [worthy of admiration], but the sickly (decaying, worthless) tree bears bad (worthless) fruit. 18 A good (healthy) tree cannot bear bad (worthless) fruit, nor can a bad (diseased) tree bear excellent fruit [worthy of admiration]. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and cast into the fire. 20 Therefore, you will fully know them by their fruits.
Ephesians 5:18 And be not drunkwithwine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
Revelation 17:2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunkwith the wine of her fornication.
Revelation 18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
(Deu 1:13 KJV) Take you wise men, and understanding, and known among your tribes, and I will make them rulers over you.
(Deu 1:14 KJV) And ye answered me, and said, The thing which thou hast spoken is good for us to do.
(Deu 1:15 KJV) So I took the chief of your tribes, wise men, and known, and made them heads over you, captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, and captains over fifties, and captains over tens, and officers among your tribes.
(Deu 1:16 KJV) And I charged your judges at that time, saying, Hear the causes between your brethren, and judge righteously between every man and his brother, and the stranger that is with him.
(Deu 1:17 KJV) Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God’s: and the cause that is too hard for you, bring it unto me, and I will hear it.
(Deu 1:18 KJV) And I commanded you at that time all the things which ye should do.
(1 Tim 3:1 KJV) This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.
(1 Tim 3:2 KJV) A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
(1 Tim 3:3 KJV) Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
(1 Tim 3:4 KJV) One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;
(1 Tim 3:5 KJV) (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)
(1 Tim 3:6 KJV) Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.
(1 Tim 3:7 KJV) Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.
Alcoholics, wine drinkers, smokers, drug users too they all tend to have evidentially lost their self control.. but often try to dominate others, are control freaks themselves too. They have negative values and not positive ones mostly still too.

Reference http://pennyronning.wordpress.com/2008/04/27/elizabeth-edwards-ny-times-article-on-the-news-media/#comment-174I have been working with the News media, press the last 25 years, and for a decade now too I daily write my views to all the major Newspapers, mostly in Canada, and they do next often act upon it as well. I also post my own comments on politics now too. http://groups.msn.com/CanadaToday6 https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/The news media plays a vital role in our society, it tends to be the voice, the conscience of the majority of the people, citizens..Yes I also do even complain about news reporters lies, spins, distortions but fortunately they have their free speech and so do many others too now, me included.. at least most of the time.. I have had the police wrongfully come to my home 6 times in my life time in Canada cause some politician did not like that I had sent him a letter with a copy to the news editors, including a prime minister, premier, mayor now too.. and I am still writing, and most of the bad guys I wrote about are out of office sooner or later. For the news media tends not to support the losers once exposed even by me.. and no politician can win without the news media support, for advertising is very costly as even Mrs. Clinton or the PM Stephen Harper knows.
“There’s irony in the notion that the Harper government finds itself under the gun over its election advertising . Political advertising has played a pivotal role in the Conservative party’s rising fortunes, and persists as the party’s preferred means of communicating with the public. But advertising lately has become a headache for the party, being forced to account for its spending on national ads during the 2006 election… the Conservatives won the last election in large part by being paragons of propriety, making accountability legislation a cornerstone of their election platform. The squeaky clean image was designed to contrast with the tarnish on the Liberal brand following the Quebec sponsorship scandal… Stephen Harper has embraced the mantra “playing by the rules.” His party, he asserts, is the one that represents Canadians who play by the rules. Yet here the Conservatives are accused of grabbing unfair advantage through a secretive scheme involving cash transfers between national and local Conservative campaigns… “
“Advertising is important to the Conservatives because they’ve experienced difficulty communicating by other means. The PM has alienated the Ottawa press corps and shied away from both formal news conferences and impromptu scrums. He appears before media mostly in photo ops, with no questions permitted. In addition, journalists, following the 2006 vote, were restricted in their access to the Centre Block area where the cabinet meets and Harper’s ministers often appear muzzled. With advertising, Conservatives have found that they can tightly control scripting and visuals to achieve their communications goals. And, having perfected the art of fundraising under tighter political financing rules, the party has been flush with money to spend on the favoured communications tool. Conservatives raised four times more money than Liberals in 2007 –about $12 million — which helped them finance a prominent series of ads Unfortunately for the Conservatives, ensuring such advertising supremacy over the Liberals required the circuitous financial machinations that now threaten the party’s reputation.”
The Tories spins are too late, the damage has been done, again and again.. and fighting with the news media who tend to represent the Citizens firstly is a stupid mistake for any politician, party.WWJD? Vote for Obama, more and more young evangelicals say Atlanta Journal Constitution, USA – 18 Apr 2008 They are turning what should be a recipe for conservative confusion into an opportunity for evangelical evaluation.This is a joke, no one should take this serious, I saw on the CTV news today a video of Obama in a bar drinking Beer.. and unlike Catholics, the True professing evangelicals do not consumer alcohol.. so to me he Obama is just another Christian Pretender like the prime Minister of Stephen Harper now too who also consumes, distributes alcohol and he what still professes to be an evangelical Christian. He cleartly too is not.Known Boozer, ex Prime Minister Paul Martin a professing Catholic also consumes alcohol in abundance and he too professes to be a Christian now too..Republican White House hopeful John McCain lashed was pressed on his own endorsement by the Reverend John Hagee, an evangelical pastor who has made outspoken remarks attacking the Roman Catholic Church and who has a definite unbiblical view towards Israel right to the promise land today, Israel’s personal salvation now too. Hagee has a perverted view of the John 3:16 eternal Salvation standards, with One for Christians, Unbelievers and a different one for the Jews. McCain said it was “probably” a mistake to solicit Hagee’s endorsement, which might help him with evangelical voters, but said he was “glad” to have it nonetheless.“Just 1.8 percent of evangelicals believe that Jesus Christ would vote for Hillary Clinton in 2008. “http://airamerica.com/blog/2008/mar/30/southern-baptist-conversion-concern-about-climate-changeAlso Trying to seal the significant loss of public, media support Canada’s federal conservatives resorted even lately to damage control secrecy, spin control instead of being fully honest in the matter.“In a scene out of a second-rate bedroom farce, government operatives skulked around, moving a “secret” briefing for select media outlets from one hotel to another.Most reporters were barred, while a few others, of varying political stripes, were admitted to a closed session. Certainly the topic at hand — allegations that the Tory party outspent its election limit by $1 million — deserves further explanation. The pertinent documents were scheduled to be released Monday anyway. Why would the Harper government go out of its way to further alienate the press corps, in this case including those friendly to Conservatives?”Of course lately this isn’t the first time Stephen Harper’s Conservative government has shown a preference for control, spin doctoring, dictatorship, secrecy and false partiality, RACIAL, ETHNIC and GENDER BIas too, and next even media favoritism and I have said that was rightfully unacceptable still a long time ago too. Unacceptably the Calgary Christian Missionary Alliance church, a false Christian church as I have detailed why before too, , the preferential Christian denomination of the professing Christian evangelical Prime Minister Stephen Harper wrongfully does all that too as I have witnessed first hand many times too is never acceptable, so it is clear why Harper does the same things.
“MP Gilles Duceppe said the Conservatives, Harper shouldn’t complain about being held to a higher standard” for they had claimed they were going to be more honest too.
