Obama has said redistricting will be his primary cause. He has said he wants to help rebuild Democratic strength by preventing Republicans from drawing legislative maps that are favorable to them and will define the political landscape for the next decade.

A senior Iranian leader and confidant of the Islamic Republic’s president is threatening to "depose" President Donald Trump if he continues his policy of confronting Iran and its terror proxy groups in the Middle East, according to recent comments that come as Iranian military leaders threaten missile strikes on U.S. forces and bases in the region.
Mostafa Tajzadeh, a leading Iranian politician and ally to President Hassan Rouhani, claimed this week that the Trump administration is too "fragile" to confront Iran and that if U.S. officials do "anything unwise against Iran," the Islamic Republic will see that Trump is "deposed," according to Farsi-language comments independently translated for the Washington Free Beacon.
The threats come as Iranian politicians and military leaders amp up their rhetoric against the Trump administration following a series of strikes in Syria on Iranian-backed forces bolstering embattled President Bashar al-Assad.
Violent thunderstorms hit Germany, two people killed, one seriously injured
Posted by TW on June 23, 2017 in categories Featured articles, Severe storms
Violent thunderstorms hit Germany on Thursday, June 22, 2017, producing gale-force winds, heavy rain and large hail. The storms caused widespread damage and traffic chaos, killed two people and severely injured at least one person. Contrary to numerous media reports, there was no tornado ripping through the city of Hamburg yesterday.
The first set of storms marched through the country during the early morning hours, damaging power lines and rail tracks, thus forcing trains to be halted between Berlin, Hamburg, Bremen, Kiel, and Hanover. Regional train provider Metronom said its services in the northwest were also affected after storms downed trees onto the tracks in several places.
The storms also affected and temporarily closed some of the busiest road routes connecting Hamburg with Berlin, Hanover and Wolfsburg.
Deutsche Welle reported that some planes departing overnight from Berlin were grounded at both of the capital’s airports amid heavy rain. Those stranded at Tegel and Schönefeld airport were given blankets and water, while camper beds were also set up. At Schönefeld Airport normal service was expected to resume at around 09:00 local time. However, a speaker for the airport warned of potential further delays and urged travelers to check the status of their flight before departing for the airport.

Etymology, word play, pattern analysis are some of the facets of study considered when deciphering the spiritual world we live in, that which is shape-shifted as a mere physical manifestation of unrelated events. Whereas when one dons the spectacles shaded with the light to see the spiritual interconnectedness of everything, that “in which we live, breathe, and move”, the conclusion then, is that language is far more designed and planned, inter-related than the Social Engineers would have us know. They live to deceive. Scripture calls them the “builders”, “the great men of the earth”, they live to build the world in which we live. They build the world we see. Cleverness is their modus. Puns, innuendo, trompe l’oeil, all tangentially morphed from the Word, the base code for all that is, was, will be. All else is a distortion. Taught to think one way, we have been immersed in a world where we think we know how it actually works. From DNA, to the cosmos, to the hollywoodized form and function of reality. Deception is king, and perceived reality rules the day.

Face-detecting systems in China now authorize payments, provide access to facilities and track down criminals. The technology is already in use and could be a precursor to Revelation 13.
The recent terror attacks in London have re-energized the debate over the term “radical Islam,” but not among students interviewed, nearly all of whom insisted that it is “wrong” to employ the phrase.
Campus Reform Curious to know where college students would come down on the matter, Campus Reform headed to Washington, D.C. to ask students at George Washington University a simple question: “Should we use the phrase ‘Radical Islam,’ or is it too offensive?” Quickly, it became clear that students found the phrase abrasive and unnecessary.

Avigdor Liberman: Abbas is dragging Israel into war with Hamas

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas will halt all financial payments to Gaza in the future and in so doing push Israel into war with Hamas, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman warned on Thursday morning as he addressed the annual Herzliya Conference.
“I have no intention of initiating any military activity; not in the summer and not in the fall, not in the South and not in the North. Our objective is to prevent war and the only way to do that is through credible deference,” Liberman said.
He blamed internal Palestinian politics for creating a humanitarian crisis in Gaza such that its 2 million residents are living on less than four hours of electricity a day.
Andrew Ng has likened artificial intelligence (AI) to electricity in that it will be as transformative for us as electricity was for our ancestors. I can only guess that electricity was mystifying, scary, and even shocking to them — just as AI will be to many of us. Credible scientists and research firms have predicted that the likely automation of service sectors and professional jobs in the United States will be more than 10 times as large as the number of manufacturing jobs automated to date. That possibility is mind-boggling. So, what can we do to prepare for the new world of work? Because AI will be a far more formidable competitor than any human, we will be in a frantic race to stay relevant. That will require us to take our cognitive and emotional skills to a much higher level.
What does it mean to be human? The answering of this existential puzzler has powered progression for millennia, but now, as nascent technologies fuse physical, digital and biological worlds, it has never been more complex, and critical, to define the age-old question. Alarmingly, we are hurtling inexorably towards the ‘singularity’ – a hypothetical point when artificial intelligence advances so much that humanity will be irreversibly disrupted. But, in fact, the migration from man to machine has already started […] “We can envision ever larger gaps in capability between enhanced humans and unenhanced humans,” adds Wood. “This will be like the difference between literate and illiterate humans, except that the difference will be orders of magnitude larger.
The authorization act reads, under the headline ASTROBIOLOGY STRATEGY: “The Administrator shall enter into an arrangement with the National Academies to develop a science strategy for astrobiology that would outline key scientific questions, identify the most promising research in the field, and indicate the extent to which the mission priorities in existing decadal surveys address the search for life’s origin, evolution, distribution, and future in the universe.” The Act calls for NASA to enlist the help of partners from both the international community and the private sector as well. This is small, but critical. NASA’s work in astrobiology and its investigation into extraterrestrial life stretch back for decades, but Congress has hardly ever acknowledged that work, let alone sent instructions to NASA to look pursue such endeavors. But times have changed.

SICK: Children under six are being prescribed antidepressants by doctors
(Natural News) What sort of world are we living in when children below the age of six are being given antidepressants? A rather sordid one if the National Health Service (NHS) figures are anything to go by. Of the 198,906 prescriptions of antidepressants handed out to those under 18 in the UK, a shocking 12,756 of those were children … [Read More…]
