2. and Mr. Morsi’s assurance that Egypt would reach an agreement with the I.M.F. after more than a year of talks over a $4.8 billion loan package. The statement issued by Mr. Kerry noted that he and Mr. Morsi had discussed the need to ensure the fairness of Egypt’s coming elections, 3. but it did not mention any specific political commitments the Egyptian president had made to receive the aid.
I wanted to clarify and be corrected if I am wrongly informed: In May 2011, President Obama pledged $1 billion to support Egypt’s democratic revolution. This is how it is going down; Secretary of State John Kerry announced Sunday that the United States would provide $250 million in assistance to Egypt after: 1. Egypt’s president promised to move ahead with negotiations with the International Monetary Fund over economic reforms... In a statement issued after his two-hour meeting with President Mohamed Morsi, Mr. Kerry said the aid decision reflected Egypt’s “extreme needs "
government was organized to do, and that’s what the Constitution was put into place to do. I think this is something we shouldn’t give up on so easily. The president does not have the power to act as the judge, jury and executioner. Are we so afraid of terrorism that we’re willing to just throw out our rights and our freedoms? I think he helped many to think for the first time about these things and people need to think on them. I applaud his effort and am grateful.
and added: "When Mr. Brennan was asked directly, “Is there any limit to your killing? Is there any geographic limitation to your drone strike program?” He responded no, there is no limitation. The obvious question would be, then, if there’s no limitation to whom you can kill and where you can kill and there’s no due process, does that mean you will do it in America?" there is more, but the point is, IMO I applaud his couragous attempt at upholding highly esteemed and honored truths...and we need to guard them closely. His speaking of them - helped many think of them for the first time. He impressed me with his Filibuster and I say Thank you to him for doing it. We have separation of powers to protect our rights. That’s what...
I spoke with some last night on this and I am surprised how many just do not get the point of what Sen. Rand Paul did what he did: He told us then, during the filibuster and again as clarification saying: "I rose to defend the principles of our Constitution, principles for which we have fought long and hard. To give up on that principle — the Bill of Rights, the Fifth Amendment — is a travesty. I will not sit back and allow the president to shred our Constitution."
This is what Sen McCain said: "But I also think that when, you know, it's always the wacko birds on right and left that get the media megaphone." I think, IMHO - that he missed the point of the Filibuster. That said, I believe Sen Rand Paul did an excellent in Standing For a Thing 'very important' and because of that, we got an answer....That was a good thing. :)

Yes. you are correct...the June 2009 sermon, Benedict XVI’s encyclical Caritas in Veritate: a globalist manifesto 'Caritas in Veritate' presented to the G8 summit talks. With the publication of Caritas in Veritate, Benedict XVI has himself come out strongly for a new world order. He might wish to put a new international system to different uses than those supported by Gorbachev, Merkel, Kissinger, or others – but he agrees that a new international system, “a true world political authority,” must come into being. So it seems the church has been working with others and for this ultimate goal. That was my point.

Thank you for this well written and explained article. You are more respectful toward the Catholic Pope than I am, but that aside...you are correct, he is not an evangelical. The simple fact that pope benedict the 16th called for a New Economic World Order 2009 and delivered this plan before the G8 talks. The Vatican plan called: The leader of the Catholic Church, Pope Benedict XVI, has called for the establishment of World Government and a New World Order. In a speech made at the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace on Monday December 3 2012, the Pope called for the “construction of a world community, with a corresponding authority,” to serve the “common good of the human family”. I posted this on the 17th. I saw it was...
I agree it is a well written article, I just disagree with the time frame...I think we are going to see severe and massive change worldwide within 2 maybe 3 years at the longeset. Obi is a helper in rushing it along. The writting is on the wall to all with eyes to see. Just my nickel on our times.
