Pope Francis Says All Major Religions are Paths to Same God

A new video has just been released in which Pope Francis very clearly expresses his belief that all of the major religions are different paths to the same God. 
He says that while people from various global faiths may be "seeking God or meeting God in different ways" that it is important to keep in mind that "we are all children of God". 
This is the most recent example that shows that the Pope has completely abandoned any notion that a relationship with God is available only through Jesus Christ. 
As he has done throughout his papacy, he continues to lay the groundwork for the coming one world religion, and yet hardly anyone seems upset by this.
When I first heard of this new video, I was so stunned that I thought that it might be a joke. But the truth is that this video is very real. The following comes from an article that was put out by Catholic News Agency...
The Popes first-ever video message on his monthly prayer intentions was released Tuesday, highlighting the importance of interreligious dialogue and the beliefs different faith traditions hold in common, such as the figure of God and love.
"Many think differently, feel differently, seeking God or meeting God in different ways. In this crowd, in this range of religions, there is only one certainty that we have for all: we are all children of God," Pope Francis said in his message, released Jan. 6, the feast of the Epiphany.
 
But it isnt just Pope Francis speaking in this video. In fact, one section of the video features leaders from various global religions expressing faith in their respective deities. The following comes from an article about this new video that was posted on Christian News Network...
The video then features clips of those from different world religions declaring belief in their various deities.
"I have confidence in Buddha," a female lama announces.
"I believe in God," a rabbi affirms.
"I believe in Jesus Christ," a priest states.
"I believe in Allah," an Islamic leader declares.
Are you shocked yet?
The Pope closes the video with an appeal for people from every religion to talk with one another and to work with one another. Here is more from Catholic News Agency...
Later on, after the Pope affirms that all, regardless of their religious profession, are children of God, the faith leaders state their common belief in love.
Pope Francis closes the video by expressing his hope that viewers "will spread my prayer request this month: that sincere dialogue among men and women of different faiths may produce fruits of peace and justice. I have confidence in your prayers."

Clinton Email Outlined Plan to Spark Arab-Spring Style Protests Against Israel
a former US diplomat suggested to Clinton that she push the Palestinians to form Arab Spring-like protests against Israel to push the government to make fresh overtures towards a two-state solution. Thomas Pickering, a former US ambassador to Israel, wrote to Clinton on December 18, 2011 that she should recommend sparking Palestinian demonstrations, led by female protesters, to force Israel to re-enter peace negotiations.

Hezbollah: Russia is arming us
Russia is providing Hezbollah with heavy weaponry, according to two of the Lebanese terrorist organization's field commanders.

Exposing Major PC Cover-up in Sweden – Leading Daily Dagens Nyheter Refused to Write About Cologne-like Sex Crimes in Central Stockholm
The Cologne sex assault on New Year’s Eve, where groups of Arab and North African men groped more than a hundred German women, has shocked Europe this last week. But a very similar incident, with a large number of perpetrators and victims, took place in the Swedish capital last summer. That incident however was silenced by large Swedish newspapers and media companies, despite repeated attempts from police officers to contact journalists. This is how leading Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter tried to cover up a politically inconvenient sex assault story.  

The State of the Nation: A Dictatorship Without Tears
There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.”—Aldous Huxley.  

GOP Congress Critters would rather watch the USA die than give up Power and extreme Wealth
With ongoing acts of patent lunacy—or the darker reason…collaboration—the Republican-controlled US Congress refuses to remove the cancer eating away at Washington D.C. just as the Democrats have done for decades. Instead, the aforementioned Congress seems to prefer the ultimate demise-for-lack-of-proper-care that will soon be the cause of death.

Iran Defies U.S. and UN on Nuclear Weapons

Teheran's actions towards the United States over the past few weeks have been visibly belligerent, defiant and antagonizing. A provocative missile attack, frenzied stockpiling of missiles and violations of the U.N nuclear and security terms by Iran have recently combined to strain relations severely between the U.S and Iran.
Irans  actions signifying that 'the gloves are off' would be strange, coming from a government whose nuclear program is one that the U.S has bent over backward to accommodate - while ignoring loud and consistent  warnings from allies and observers regarding Irans true intentions. 
Indications are that the chickens have finally come home to roost for the Obama administration, which is reeling with embarrassment from the inevitable 'we told you so for free' fallout. The Iranian government has now pulled off the sheeps mask and exposed the hidden wolf, apparently having decided that it has fooled the U.S enough and has little to lose by coming out in its true colors.
Breitbart.com's Jordan Schachtel reported that on January 5th, 2016 the Islamic Republic of Iran revealed what appeared to be an underground missile base, with state television footage showcasing a stockpile of precision-guided missiles. The Emad missiles appear to violate a 2010 UN Security Council resolution that banned Iran from developing nuclear-capable ballistic weapons, according to Reuters.
The Emad is a ballistic missile with an alleged range of over 1,000 miles.  It is also claimed to have an advanced guidance system and is suspected by UN sanctions monitors of having the capacity to deliver a nuclear weapon. 
Irans unveiling of the 'seemingly impregnable' underground facility comes less than a week after the White House bailed out on an effort to impose sanctions on the Ayatollahs regime.
 
This is at least the third incident that shows Iran has violated international sanctions and resolutions. The regime has already conducted two ballistic missile tests in recent months, following the signing of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), otherwise known as the Iran nuclear deal.
Sanctions were reportedly going to be implemented following Irans blatant violation of international resolutions, but the Obama administration backed down, reportedly at the request of Tehran.
Its interesting to note how this magnanimous act from the White House was reciprocated. On behalf of Tehran, Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehqans reaction stated:  "Iran's missile capabilities have never been the subject of negotiations with the Americans and will never be. Irans defense power is a guarantee for security and stability in the region."
The Ayatollah regime would therefore seem to be ready to capitalize fully on what it perceives to be U.S weakness and shortsightedness through this and its other recent actions of defiance  rewarding U.S goodwill with mockery and an open betrayal of trust.
Instead, as Rick Gladstone (nytimes.com) also reported, Irans president has ordered his Defense Ministry to respond by swiftly building more of the missiles. The White House reacted by circulating a draft of proposed sanctions on Wednesday but reportedly did not provide a timetable or even say that they would be put into effect.
Iran, on the other hand, has not shied away from bold and aggressive action. On December 30th, writers for nbcnews.com and other news outlets reported the firing of unguided rockets by Iran just 1,500 yards away from ships including an American aircraft carrier, the USS Harry S. Truman.

The U.S carrier was crossing international waters in the Strait of Hormuz when Iranian Revolutionary Guards (IRCGN) conducted a live-fire exercise nearby.
Senior U.S. military commanders on Wednesday accused Iran's military of "highly provocative actions that came with only 23 seconds of warning. The actions were also described as unsafe, unprofessional, and inconsistent with international maritime law."
Nobody from Iran's foreign or defense ministries gave official comment, but the country's state-run news agency, Fars, said in its report of the event that no vessel was in danger. The incident was a planned training exercise and all vessels in the area had been warned, it said.
A flippant remark; adding insult to injury. On the other hand, Israel, current U.S ally and sworn enemy of Iran has seemingly made a more accurate assessment of Iran and adopted a more realistic approach. towards it. 
Israel has long emphasized the dangers of the Iranian nuclear threat and Iran's support of terror cells and has been actively working to counter both. This was further reiterated as Yossi Cohen was sworn in as the new head of the Mossad intelligence agency early January.
Cohen warned that the nuclear agreement signed between Iran and six world powers in July had "significantly increased" the threat to Israel posed by the Islamic Republic, but added that he was confident the spy agency would be able to formulate an "appropriate response." He also pointed to internecine conflict in the Muslim world and the strengthening of regional terror organizations as a threat to the entire world, and to Israel in particular.
Christians United For Israel would agree. In a recent statement regarding these latest developments, CUFI says that an emboldened Iran is not ignoring Israel. The pro-Israel U.S based group recounted that on January 4, the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah planted a roadside bomb on the border between Lebanon and Israel, striking a convoy and injuring IDF troops.
CUFI concludes: "We were right about the Iran deal. And we are now seeing the harvest of aggression and terror we predicted. But we cant just sit back and tell our leaders and neighbors that we told them so. We need to show them the error of this deal. It is not too late to turn past support for this deal into future opposition. A consistent message to our elected representatives, friends and neighbors  and electing wiser leaders in November  will help us roll back this disastrous deal".
 

Hezbollah: Russia is Arming us

Senior Hezbollah militants tell US news outlet that Russia is providing the terrorist group with weapons including long-range missiles and laser-guided rockets. Furthermore, one adds, Russia has placed no restrictions on their weapons being used against Israel.

Russia is providing Hezbollah with heavy weaponry, according to two of the Lebanese terrorist organization's field commanders.

According to The Daily Beast, they met the Hezbollah commanders in Beirut's Dahiya suburb on two separate occasions – once at the end of December and again at the beginning of 2016.

The pair, who were apparently not authorized to speak to the media and therefore did not provide their names, said that Russia is arming Hezbollah with "long-range tactical missiles, laser guided rockets, and anti-tank weapons."

One of the field commanders, who dubbed himself Commander Bakr, told The Daily Beast: "We are strategic allies in the Middle East right now – the Russians are our allies and give us weapons.

"The intervention of the Russians made it much easier (for us)," he continued. "Without their air force we can't advance and they couldn't give us air support without our information from the ground."

Russian officials did not respond to The Daily Beast's request for a comment.

Another commander, who called himself Assir, told the outlet that Russia is relying more and more on Hezbollah – rather than the Syrian army – to guard Russia's arms depots inside Syria, which at the same time gives the Lebanese organization broad access to the depots' contents.

Assir also said that Moscow has given Hezbollah free reign to use its weapons as it sees fit – including against Israel.

While the report acknowledges that so far the increased tensions between Hezbollah and Israel have been kept in check, in the event of a new war, "the Russian 'alliance' might well be put to the test."


GOP Congress Critters Would Rather Watch the U.S. Die Than Give Up Power and Extreme Wealth

With ongoing acts of patent lunacy—or the darker reason…collaboration—the Republican-controlled US Congress refuses to remove the cancer eating away at Washington D.C. just as the Democrats have done for decades.  Instead, the aforementioned Congress seems to prefer the ultimate demise-for-lack-of-proper-care that will soon be the cause of death.  One of the primary reasons used as an excuse is the now cliché false fear of being called a “racist” if they oppose the country’s enslavement of its citizens with replacement of illegal ones and totalitarian leftist policies.  Note…at some point almost all politicians become leftists in order to enrich themselves and they begin to view their constituencies as “the great unwashed masses” who are beneath them.  They, then, begin to use any inane excuse to draw curious eyes away from what they’re really doing.  And, at some point it no longer matters on which side they pretend to be…because it’s the side that solely enriches them.

After passing the “Omnibus” bill—which already includes all sorts of snakes and vermin including, but not limited to, fully funding Planned Parenthood, ObamaCare and the resettlement of Syrians “refugees” and other thousands of assorted Muslims into our country—our replacements—Speaker of the House and Boehner clone Paul Ryan patted himself on the back for passing another bill in the House which eliminates ObamaCare and defunds Planned Parenthood.  Do you remember when Paul Ryan said that he’d wait to pass the omnibus bill until after a new POTUS is elected…then passed it in the middle of the night ala Harry Reid and the rest of the Marxist Dems?  I watched the video (see second Source below) and even Ryan seems to have difficulty not laughing (watch his facial expressions) when he states more of his own rather apparent lies.

As I’ve stated multiple times before, the USA is now under a one-party political system that has 2 heads which attempt to speak opposite messages in order to confuse and better control the proletariat.  Our Republic was replaced quite some time ago.  In the history of our country this has never been clearer than it is today.  Our Founders—including John Adams and George Washington amongst others—warned us about a 2-party political system.

Exposing Major Political Correctness Cover - Up in Sweden

Exposing Major PC Cover-up in Sweden – Leading Daily Dagens Nyheter Refused to Write About Cologne-like Sex Crimes in Central Stockholm.

STOCKHOLM The Cologne sex assault on New Year’s Eve, where groups of Arab and North African men groped more than a hundred German women, has shocked Europe this last week. But a very similar incident, with a large number of perpetrators and victims, took place in the Swedish capital last summer. That incident however was silenced by large Swedish newspapers and media companies, despite repeated attempts from police officers to contact journalists. This is how leading Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter tried to cover up a politically inconvenient sex assault story.

Nyheter Idag is now able to disclose in detail how major Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter deliberately covered up stories about widespread sexual abuse in central Stockholm in connection with a concert in the Kungsträdgården public square this August. “The mere suspicion that the abuse has been considered as difficult to describe involves a betrayal of the victims”,the newspaper writes about the event, almost six months later.

On Saturday August 15th, the nationally acclaimed and outspoken feminist artist Zara Larsson headlined the youth festival ‘We Are Sthlm” with a crowded concert in Kungsträdgården in central Stockholm. Thousands of young people were in attendance to take part in the event during the last summer nights of the year.

But for an unknown number of young girls the festival soon became a nightmare. Hordes of young men pressed against young girls, fondled and tried to cop a feel over and under skirts, pants and shirts. There were severe sexual assaults happening right in front of the stage, where artists such as Larsson and rapper OIAM performed.

During a single night police and security guards had to intervene against around 90 younger males, but even adult men took part in the abuse, says an eye witness to Nyheter Idag. The eye witness has professional experience from working at the Stockholm Police Department as a psychologist.

The police officer tried to contact Dagens Nyheter several times: “They never called again”

The psychologist who knew of what had happened in Kungsträdgården contacted journalist Hanne Kjöller at Dagens Nyheter, by, among other things, e-mail on August 17. The psychologist says he specifically turned to Kjöller because he knew that she had previously written about controversial topics.

“She was very interested and listened until I told her that all the boys and men that were apprehended were young asylants (unaccompanied is the terminology used by Swedish authorities) from Afghanistan and Syria. I sensed that she changed the tone (of her voice). But she also said that she would contact the police”, he tells Nyheter Idag.

Kjöller got the phone number to one of the police officers who were on duty during the event in Kungsträdgården and could provide a recollection of the events. Nyheter Idag has talked with the police officer who Kjöller talked to in August, and he was eager to tell Dagens Nyheter about the massive cases of sexual assault against young girls in central Stockholm.

“She sent a text message to me once, early on, where she wrote that she was looking for me, she wanted to talk. After that, I tried to get in touch with her, but that was when things started to get awry. She answered sometimes, said she would get back to me. But it never amounted to anything. She was interested in it for half day or a day, then she wasn’t anymore”.

The officer explains that he worked for several evenings during this week in Kungsträdgården square. He tells of how he and his colleagues had to apprehend a large number of young men who sexually assaulted girls, in large part unaccompanied refugees from Afghanistan.
The police officer, who has worked as a police officer for over 20 years, emphatically states several times that the events in Kungsträdgården were systematic and extensive in number. This was what he wanted to tell Hanne Kjöller of Dagens Nyheter.

“We got in touch and talked briefly, and she said she would call back, which she did not. So I looked for her, she did not call back. I tried to reach her at another time, but I never heard back from her again. I called several times, cannot say exactly how many. It was over a three or four day period”.

“The editor at DN dismissed the story as SD falsity”

Time passes and a new year begins – it’s now 2016 and the brutal and massive sexual assaults against young girls that August evening in Kungsträdgården is completely unknown to the public.
But then something happens, a rumor that goes viral on blogs in Germany spreads to the so-called “alternative media” in Sweden. After a day, traditional media in both Germany and other European countries start to report on the same issue.

It is, of course, the Sex Attacks in Cologne on New Year’s Eve.

It came to grow into a major scandal after police initially did not report on the large number of sexual abuses and rapes that occurred on the New Year’s Eve. A police chief was fired and it has been speculated why there was so much silence initially, despite all the sexual assaults. But the scandal was a fact and just over a week into the year, there is no way avoiding the subject – are authorities and the media deliberately trying to cover up sexual abuse carried out by men with migrant backgrounds?

Now something happens at newspaper Dagens Nyheter.

The journalist Hanne Kjöller tries to establish contact with the psychologist on January 7th about the events in Kungsträdgården nearly five months earlier. She writes an e-mail to the psychologist. “Would like to get in touch with you again after what happened in Cologne during the New Year holidays,” she writes. In the e-mail conversation it is apparent that she learned of the sexual assaults in Kungsträdgården already on August 17th, but is only now ready to give attention to what happened.

She also calls the psychologist and records a message on his voicemail.

“We had contact in August. Now, after what happened in Cologne, I would like to talk to you again. It got stuck on certain things when we were doing this in August”, says Kjöller in the voicemail.

Then they get in contact with each other again. The incident in Kungsträdgården was suddenly a very pressing matter for Hanne Kjöller to report on, says the psychologist to Nyheter Idag.

“Hanne Kjöller contacted me again yesterday because of the events in Germany, she said it gave her a bad feeling. She was fidgeting when I asked her why she never contacted the police and never wrote an article”, says the psychologist.

He says that Kjöller claims she never got hold of the police, and that is why no article was ever published in Dagens Nyheter about the incident in Kungsträdgården. But the psychologist also says that he’s been given a different explanation. That Kjöller over the phone told him that “the editor for the Stockholm section of Dagens Nyheter had taken charge of the case herself, and (the editor) considered the story to be “SD fabrications” (SD, or Sweden Democrats, are a populist anti-migration party that for a long time has been at odds with Swedish mainstream media).

“She (Kjöller) said that her editor had used the term ‘SD fabrications’ or ‘SD falsifications’, something like that. I remember that detail specifically”, says the psychologist.

The psychologist takes out his mobile phone, his fingers dances over the touch screen. He is upset because of the way he thinks Dagens Nyheter has handled the issue. In a text message, sent from Hanne Kjöller, she is basically apologizing for the critically important story not having been published.

“But a warm thanks for your tip. I am sorry that we didn’t use it in a better way. Hanne”, the text message reads.

Dagens Nyheter: “A betrayal of the victims”

January, Saturday 9th 2016 Dagens Nyheter runs an article with the headline “Women’s right to party safely cannot be sacrificed”. The article is written by freelance writer Lasse Wierup, Hanne Kjöller’s colleague at Dagens Nyheter. In the article the incident in Kungsträdgården is now mentioned for the very first time.

“One of the police officers who took part in the command, and had to give a lot of time in support of the victimized girls, says that the whole incident was considered very sensitive. The young lads that were sent away were judged to be mostly unaccompanied (asylum seekers or refugees)”, writes Wierup.

Then Wierup continues, pondering why the events haven’t been covered in the media previously. He claims it’s “unclear” (why that is), despite that his colleague Hanne Kjöller, according to the psychologist, explained that the editor at Dagens Nyheters Stockholm section earlier dismissed the whole story as “SD fabrications”.

“Why the widespread sexual harassments, in the midst of central Stockholm, with some minor exception, were left in a media shadow, is unknown to me. But the very suspicion that the sexual assaults were considered awkward to (write about) is a betrayal of the victims”, writes Wierup in the very same newspaper that covered up the whole incident to begin with.

After Wierups article is published, some readers are catching on. Andreas Ericson, editor at the now-canceled magazine Neo, is pondering on Twitter if Dagens Nyheter is withholding some information.

“The information about we are sthlm raises a couple of questions. Were crimes reported? Was there any criminal investigation?”

“The details are sketchy and the source is anonymous. But Wierup has a good eye. The (incidents) were going on “night after night”. Were the news desks told about it?”
