The preliminary agreement with China "has been agreed following a long process of careful negotiation and foresees the possibility of periodic reviews of its application," the Vatican said in a statement issued as Pope Francis began a visit to the Baltic states. "It concerns the nomination of Bishops, a question of great importance for the life of the Church, and creates the conditions for greater collaboration at the bilateral level," it said. Analysts warn that Beijing could use the accord to further crackdown on Catholic faithful in China.

Storm Knud: Dangerous windstorm affecting Norway, Denmark and Sweden, widespread damage expected
Posted by TW on September 21, 2018 in categories Featured articles, Severe storms
A rapidly deepening cyclone, known locally as Storm Knud, is developing in the North Sea today and is already affecting southern Norway, Denmark and southern Sweden, producing very strong winds and heavy rain. Extremely severe wind strength, likely peaking into 130 – 150 km/h (80 – 93 mph) is possible in many areas. Widespread damage is expected.
Morning pressure analysis reveals a rapidly deepening cyclone in the North Sea, just west of Denmark, moving towards NE, SWE meteorologists report. Severe winds are already reported from several stations at the open sea and peak gusts reaching up to 112 km/h (70 mph). Gusts up to 90 km/h (56 mph) have also been reported along the coast of the Netherlands.
Officials in Norway said the storm will directly hit Vendsyssel, Jammerbugt, Thisted and Lemvig, where wind gusts of up to 126 km/h (78 mph) are expected, which could cause widespread damage.
Nasrallah: Despite Israel’s efforts, Hezbollah has acquired ‘precision missiles
Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah speaks via a video link, as his supporters raise their hands, during activities to mark the ninth of Ashura, a 10-day ritual commemorating the death of Imam Hussein, in a southern suburb of Beirut, Lebanon, on September 19, 2018. (AP Photo/Hussein Malla)
The leader of Hezbollah boasted Thursday that the Lebanese terror group now possesses “highly accurate” missiles, despite Israeli attempts to prevent it from acquiring such weapons.
Hassan Nasrallah didn’t offer specifics on the weapons in his traditional televised speech commemorating Ashura, a top religious holy day for Shiite Muslims. But he told supporters they need to be confident in Hezbollah’s capabilities and that the regional balance of power has changed.
He claimed Israeli strikes in Syria to prevent Hezbollah from acquiring precise missiles had proven ineffective.
“I tell (Israel) no matter what it did to cut the [weapons transport] route, it is over. It has already been achieved,” he said, adding that Hezbollah “now possesses precision missiles and non-precision and weapons capabilities.”
US: Why should we fund PA hospitals, when Abbas diverts money to pay terrorists?

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration on Thursday said that Palestinian plans to pay the family of a terrorist who killed an American-Israeli last week showed why the US was correct in cutting funding for East Jerusalem hospitals.
State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said there was no reason for the US to fund the hospitals when it merely allowed the PA to free up money to support terrorists and their families.
“The United States government does not believe that it is responsible for paying for the hospital bills,” Nauert told reporters. “The Palestinian Authority is solely responsible for paying for the treatment of Palestinians in those hospitals. Historically, they have neglected to pay the bills at their hospital. Our funding in the past has generously shored them up.”
Syria fired missiles for 40 minutes after Israeli strike, hitting Russian plane
A photo provided by the pro-regime Syrian Central Military Media, shows anti-aircraft fire rise into the sky as Israeli missiles hit air defense positions and other military bases around Damascus, Syria, on May 10, 2018, after the Israeli military says Iranian forces launched a rocket barrage against Israeli bases on the Golan Heights, in the most
The Israeli report into the downing a Russian plane off the coast of Syria during an Israeli airstrike on Monday runs some 40 pages in English and Russian and shows that Syrian anti-aircraft batteries fired dozens of barrages indiscriminately for 40 minutes after the initial Israeli attack.
In a highly unusual move, the IDF acknowledged the airstrike and released some of the findings of its initial investigation, which concluded that Syrian air defense units fired without aiming and “did not bother to ensure that no Russian planes were in the air.”
The IDF’s initial findings were presented in recent days by top Israeli officials, including the head of its air force, Maj. Gen. Amikam Norkin, to their Russian counterparts in Moscow, and both Israel and Russia said Syria, not Israel, was responsible for the downing of the plane, although Moscow has been publicly critical of Israel over the incident.
Nikki Haley: Iran proxies reportedly developing missile production in Iraq

Iranian proxies in Iraq are reportedly developing the capacity to produce missiles, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said on Thursday as she warned against the growing Iranian foothold in Iraq.
“In recent months, Iran’s aggression has escalated. Iranian proxies in Iraq operate openly, with funding, training, and weapons supplied by Tehran. The Iranian regime has reportedly begun over the last few months to transfer ballistic missiles to these proxies in Iraq. It is reportedly developing the capability for its proxy militias to produce their own missiles inside of Iraq,” Haley told the UN Security Council on Thursday.
She spoke at the UNSC’s monthly meeting on the Middle East, as Israel and the United States are increasingly concerned about the Iranian activity in Iraq and the subsequent dangers to both Israel and the United States. Last month, Reuters reported that Iran has given ballistic missiles to Shi’ite proxies in Iraq with the capacity to hit Israel. Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman has warned that the IDF, which has focused on preventing an Iranian foothold in Syria, could expand it activities against Iran to other areas of the Middle East.

4,000% Explosion in Kids Identifying as Transgender
Sep 20, 2018 | 0 |
The number of people identifying as transgender is on the rise in the United States of America and the United Kingdom, including many children and teens. This year the American Academy of Pediatrics published findings that more teenagers are beginning to use “non-traditional gender terms” to self-identify.
Transgender activists insist people who identify as the opposite gender actually are that gender and should undergo the transition process that requires hormone therapy and sex-reassignment surgery. Doctors have been accepting cases of underage girls who identify as males and are performing double mastectomies on them to avoid the trauma of developing breasts, reports The Federalist.
Most Millennials Believe the Bible Is ‘Just a Book’
Sep 20, 2018 | 0 |
It appears today’s younger generation is more disengaged than ever from the Christian faith. A recent Barna Group study reveals that only 14 percent of Millennials believe the Bible is the literal Word of God. The 2017 study also found that one in three Millennials view the Bible as “just another book.” And according to researchers, both Millennials and Generation Z are more hostile to the holy book than previous generations.
To combat this phenomenon, Wycliffe Bible Translators, the largest Scripture-translation organization in the world, has announced the third annual launch of its #WhyBible campaign. The initiative is designed to meet young people where they are in this new digital age and hopefully inspire discussion of the Bible’s lasting importance
Armyworms Invading North Texas Neighborhoods
Sep 20, 2018 | 0 |
If it looks like your lawn is moving, look closer. It might not be the wind. Armyworms are appearing almost overnight in some North Texas neighborhoods, crawling through grass, marching across streets and sidewalks, and climbing walls. In large numbers, the small, dark-colored worms can eat their way through green lawns and wipe out farm fields before they develop into moths and disappear.
Though they appear every season, the worm has exploded in large numbers in Texas this year. Entomologists said late summer rains may have benefitted the pest, but they couldn’t be certain of a specific cause for the outbreak. Rob Higdon, who runs The Bug Whisperer, a pest control company in Keller, said he had never had a call about the worm until this week. By noon Thursday, he had five
Louisiana Religious Groups Sue to Block ‘Drag Queen Story Time’
Sep 21, 2018 | 0 |
Two religious organizations in Louisiana have filed a lawsuit to stop their local library from hosting a Drag Queen Story Time event. Local news outlets report Warriors for Christ and Special Forces of Liberty say the Oct. 6th event is unconstitutional and violates the First Amendment. The groups believe that Drag Queen Story Time being held at a government-funded location endorses a religion of secular humanism and fails the Lemon Test.
That test is based on a 1971 Supreme Court ruling about government endorsement of religion. “By bringing this lawsuit, we are unapologetically and firmly defending the civil rights movement led by Pastor Martin Luther King,” attorney Christopher Sevier told KADN. “We have no problem with a drag queen story hour being held in a private facility. It can be held at the fraternity house. It can be held at the coffee shop. We draw the line by the fact we have government actors endorsing it,” he continued
Student Prayer No Longer Allowed Over Loudspeaker Before Football Games in Alabama School District
Sep 21, 2018 | 0 |
Student or volunteer-led prayer will no longer be allowed over the intercom before high school football games in the Blount County School District. According to superintendent Rodney Green, the district made the decision after a complaint from an organization based outside of the community. After discussing options with attorneys, the district said there will now be a moment of silence at home games instead.
Some neighbors who live in the area were upset to hear about the change. Many said they have been accustomed to prayer over the public address system for years. “One of our youth actually led the prayer over the P.A. system and that was last week,” said Scott Wortham, who is a youth minister at First Baptist Church in Remlap. The church is just down the road from Southeastern High School
DEVELOPING: Yellowstone Geysers shooting rocks and steam, Thermal activity increases
Sep 21, 2018 | 0 |
Yellowstone’s Upper Geyser Basin is showing increased signs of thermal activity, after hot plumes of water erupted from the ground several feet up in the air, forcing authorities to shut down parts of the park over the fear of new geysers forming. New vents were seen blasting water and steam across the basin area in Geyser Hill, ever since the Ear Spring erupted on Saturday. Authorities have attributed the
rise in geothermal activity to Saturday’s eruption, after several new surface fractures and splashes of water were spotted at the Upper Geyser Basin in Yellowstone National Park. On Tuesday, spouts of water shot from the ground west of Pump Geyser and north of Sponge Geyser, also ejecting large amounts of hot steam. The new feature, which is an eight-foot diameter, continues to show increased signs of activity after geologists observed the ground rising and falling by six inches every 10 minutes
FLASHBACK: Archbishop’s Computer Contained 100,000 Child Rape Videos – Pope Silent
September 20, 2018 Sean Adl-Tabatabai News, World 3
Even though 100,000 child porn videos and photos were found on the computer of Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski, Pope Francis helped protect him from public prosecution.
In 2014, Wesolowski was placed under house arrest at the Vatican, as investigators discovered the trove of child rape videos stored on a computer in the office at the Holy See diplomatic compound in the Dominican Republic.
Patheos.com reports: After being publicly accused of procuring child prostitutes last year, Wesolowski was secretly removed from his post as papal nuncio in Santo Domingo by Vatican officials hoping to avoid an embarrassing public prosecution.
Authorities in the Dominican Republic have been calling for Wesolowski’s extradition: a court there has opened a case against the former Vatican ambassador, and the attorney general wants to criminally charge Wesolowski.

‘Freedom of navigation isn’t a freedom to invade & infringe upon sovereignty’ – China’s UK envoy
Beijing “cherishes” the freedom of navigation principle but will not remain idle as Western powers use it as a pretext to show off their “military might” and “create trouble” in the South China Sea, China’s UK ambassador has said.

- The OIC’s media strategy encourages "accurate and factual portrayal of Islam. Emphasis should be directed at avoidance of any link or association of Islam with terrorism or the use of Islamophobic rhetoric… such as labeling criminal terrorists as ‘Islamic’ fascists, ‘Islamic’ extremists."
- That part of the strategy has already had much success across the Western world, where authorities and media do not want to label Muslim terrorists as Islamic, but routinely describe them as "mentally ill."
- The OICs highly ambitious plans to do away with freedom of speech go severely underreported in the West. Mainstream journalists do not appear to find it dangerous that their freedom of speech should be supervised by the OIC, while Western governments, far from offering any resistance, appear, perhaps for votes, to be cozily going along with everything.
