A few headlines that caught my eye from the last couple of days…
US Drought Affecting Global Food Security
The United States is the leading producer of corn and soybeans – two commodities that developing countries rely on. However, over the past two months, prices have risen sharply as the U.S. experiences its worst drought since the 1950s.

‘Character Assassination Is Now A Way Of Life’ For The Left And Its Media Allies
since the Left has lost on all the issues, it has resorted to personal attacks and an “ends justify the means” approach (emphasis added): “What is the degree to which the left has gone to the strategy that ends justify the means? And increasingly they’ll do whatever they need to do to get their way. Character assassination is now a way of life with these people. “They can’t debate us on the issues; that’s the key. Their issues have all failed. They have only one weapon left, which is character assassination. And look how it happened. Candidate – whether it was Michele Bachmann, whether it was Herman Cain, whether it was Perry, Santorum- every single one of them was kneecapped. And in every single case it was a personal attack.”

Obama Administration Paves the Way for Sharia Law
The most terrifying danger Americans face from a second Barack Obama term isn’t the economy, which is scary enough. The most harrowing prospect is the Obama Administration’s passivity in the face of attempts to introduce aspects of sharia law into our legal system. Now there is strong and open evidence of the Obama administration collaborating with Islamist activists to ensure the path toward sharia law is accelerated.

Michael Oren: The World Talks as Iran Acts to Destroy Israel
Michael Oren, Israel’s Ambassador to the United States’ op-ed article in The Wall Street Journal was another implied hint that Israel cannot wait much longer before trying to delay Iran’s nuclear program with a military attack, and such articles by the ambassador to the United States presumably are coordinated with Israel’s highest officials.
Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A “Vision” of the Future
This scenario requires us to consider how domestic intelligence is gathered and shared, the role of local law enforcement (to the extent that it supports the operation), the scope and limits of the Insurrection Act–for example maintaining a military chain of command but in support of the Attorney General as the Department of Justice is the Lead Federal Agency (LFA) under the conditions of the Act–and the roles of the local, national, and international media.
US, Israeli intel assessments on Iran closer than ever
Barak asserts that despite increased urgency in Washington, decisions about Israel’s security will be made in Jerusalem, clarifies that any order to attack will be made by the cabinet.

If you have not asked Christ into your life, the essential gospel is that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and that He was raised on the third day (1 Cor. 15:3-4). Believing this is the only qualification for salvation. We are sinners in need of a savior. Jesus died for our sins, and to prove that His death was sufficient for us, God raised Him from the dead on the third day. Believing in our heart that God raised Him from the dead is our assurance that He will raise us, too.
3 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, (1 Cor. 15:3-4).
