The Daily Jot

Treasury Secretary selling out America at G-20 for "rebalancing" of world economy

The White House monetary policy aims to devalue the American position in the world and bring the nation into alignment with other lesser nations--this is the goal of the White House's Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner as he seeks to "rebalance" the world economy at the weekend meetings of the worlds top 20 producing nations. The concept of American exceptionalism and leadership appears to be far from the Geithner strategy, the Democratic wonder boy who owed back taxes prior to becoming Treasury Secretary.

The Wall Street Journal reports, Geithner says that leaders of the G-20 "are trying to figure out what is in their self-interest." Geithner thinks that it is in America's self interest to reduce its trade deficit by saving more and reducing US demand for products. That is bureaucratese for having a lower standard of living in America. This is the result of globalization, practiced by every president since Ronald Reagan. The idea was to send jobs overseas that Americans "did not want to do," and import such goods back to the country. Over the decades, politicians have "globalized" the American auto, textile, and its electronics industries, and more to the point America is reliant on other countries like China.

Meantime, the politicians have refused to secure the borders of this nation while allowing illegals into the country to do the jobs that Americans "do not want to do." This is a ridiculous and absurd policy, but it is all part of the "globalization" of America. The true aim of globalization is like that of any one world order--to control the people. By getting rid of the American middle-class, the backbone of the Republic in so many ways--globalists are able to control the lower class with government programs and control the upper class through buying their loyalty with programs and loopholes that make them wealthier. This is called class warfare and its ultimate goal is not what it seems.

Christians know that there will be a one world order establishing the antichrist. Revelation 13:16,17 says, "And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or on their foreheads; And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name." The true class to be warred against in these days is Christians. Globalization is the strategy of satan in that Christians will be prohibited to preach the gospel. We see this beginning even today. But we are commanded to occupy till Jesus returns. Therefore, we need to resist globalization and preach the gospel to the ends of the earth--with even more passion.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

By Joel C. Rosenberg

(Jacksonville, Florida, October 22, 2010) -- That National Public Radio fired liberal commentator Juan Williams this week for publicly expressing on the Fox News Channel his anxieties about Muslims in America is appalling, but not surprising. NPR has long been hostile to the views of evangelical Christians and conservatives. Now, apparently, they are even hostile towards liberals who express personal sentiments on a conservative TV program. But the dustup is important not simply because it exposed once again the left-wing bias of NPR and demonstrated yet again why the network should not receive a dime of public funding. It was important because of the chilling implications over free speech in this country.

Are we really not allowed to say in a post-9/11 world that Muslims traveling on planes make some Americans uneasy? What else are we not allowed to say? Should we not discuss the threat of Radical Muslims to Judeo-Christian civilization? Are we not allowed to express our concerns about what would happen if Radical Muslims acquired nuclear, chemical or biological weapons? What happened to free speech in this country? Read more.

Obama Claims "Ignorance"

The Arrogance of Claiming Ignorance

The problem with his agenda, Obama now says, is that not enough people know about it. This coming from a man who seems to love the camera almost as much as the media's cameras love him. In addition to being fawned over by many in the press, he's also made guest appearances on numerous talk shows, from "The View" to "The Daily Show," and even had his own special on MTV.
With all that prime time, how can Obama think that his problem is that he hasn't talked about his agenda enough? Maybe the real problem is that he's talked about it too much--and people don't like it!

Here at FRC Action, we've done all we can to expose the President's plans by talking about the policies he has implemented and those he'd like to. Things like the greatest expansion of taxpayer funding of abortion in history with ObamaCare, the $814 billion stimulus pack age that failed to stimulate, his new taxes and regulations on job creators, his "Cash for Clunkers" program that's considered to be a failure by most, and his insistence on passing legislation and regulations that give homosexuals special federal protections over others.

Obama's arrogance must be contagious since his chief deputy, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), is now proclaiming he saved the world from a "worldwide depression." The reality is, if Senator Reid and Obama stopped trying to "do so much," the world wouldn't be quite as depressed. (Family Research Council)

Europe Shuns Iranian Planes

Iranian airplanes are no longer allowed to refuel in the majority of European airports and those still open to them are due to close their gates to Iran next month. An agreement signed between the US and Europe's four largest oil companies increases Iran's aviation isolation significantly, the Washington Post reported Monday [October 18].
The four companies, the Dutch and British Shell, French Total, Italian ENI and Norwegian Statoil, all agreed to stop investing in Iran and to avoid any new involvement with Tehran. The annulment of contracts with Iran forces Iranian aircraft to refuel only on German and Austrian soil, where Total and the Austrian company OMV will provide fuel until the end of their contract next month.

Iranian planes were blacklisted by the European Union back in July. Then it was said that the reason for the decisive move was safety issues with Iranian airplanes. The EU has stated that two-thirds of planes belonging to IranAir, the national airline of the Islamic Republic of Iran, will not be allowed to enter Europe. The plane models that will not be allowed in are: Boeing-727, Boeing-747 and the Airbus-320. Similar restrictions have been imposed on Mahan Air airlines. US Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg, who heads the American delegation for strategic dialogue, has stated that the objective is to get companies to stop doing business with Iran. The delegation is meeting in Washington Monday [October 18] with the Israeli delegation, headed by Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon.

Ayalon arrived in Washington after visiting Beijing, where he met with his Chinese counterpart and requested that China boost its sanctions and join the 32 countries, including South Korea and Japan, that have imposed sanctions on Iran. (By Yitzhak Benhorin, Ynetnews, October 18, 2010) Read more.

Prayer Focus

Pray that the effort of the US and Israel be successful in uniting the world in imposing sanctions on Iran. Pray that such sanctions will be successful in discouraging the Iranian regime from continuing its nuclear program.

Election Prayers


10. Pray against the evil spirit that brings division to the political parties, our Congress and our nation.

Luke 11:17 But He, knowing their thoughts, said to them: 'Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and a house divided against a house falls.'

11. Come against any and all fraudulent actions that are planned to take place at the polls. Pray that all hidden things be revealed and brought to justice.

Mark 4:22 "For whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed, and whatever is concealed is meant to be brought out into the open."


Matthew 18:19 "Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven."
More than anything: PRAY THAT THE LORD'S WILL BE DONE in this election. Rev. 17:14 These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful."

I pray that this scripture is in us in America as it was with Moses when he spoke to the Israelites in the desert. I pray that we won't have to repent of disobedience.

Deuteronomy 4:5-7
"See, I have taught you decrees and laws as the LORD my God commanded me, so that you may follow them in the land you are entering to take possession of it. 6 Observe them carefully, for this will show your wisdom and understanding to the nations, who will hear about all these decrees and say, "Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people." 7 What other nation is so great as to have their gods near them the way the LORD our God is near us whenever we pray to him?"

A Revolution in Skin Cancer Detection

The most common form of cancer in the United States, skin cancer, is becoming even more widespread as sunlight exposure increases worldwide.

"Early detection is the key to battling the disease. With early detection, almost all forms of skin cancer are curable," says Col. (ret.) Yossi Biderman, CEO of Skin Cancer Scanning (SCS), an Israeli company that has developed a breakthrough technology using fiber-optic cables to scan for potentially malignant moles.
Clinical trials at the Rabin Medical Center in Petah Tikva in central Israel show the system to be 92% effective in detecting certain types of skin cancer at an early stage-a higher rate than that of any apparatus currently available. Now a marketable device called Skinscan 650 is close to being ready, Biderman tells ISRAEL21c.

"We assume we will have a working prototype by mid-to-late 2011."

The unique technology is based on the observation that cancerous cells proliferate faster than healthy cells, and their accelerated metabolic activity releases energy at a higher frequency. . .
Two stages of clinical trials have already proved the system's feasibility. "We compared our results using patients who had been referred for a biopsy after a doctor had eyeballed a lesion," Biderman recounts. "We already knew that cancer cells appear in different ranges of the [light] spectrum, depending on the type of cancer, but in the first set of trials we still didn't know what we were looking at. . .
