The Face of Jesus?

As our family gathers together for the Christmas holiday there has been much discussion amongst the children about the gifts under the tree and their speculation of what may lie under the wrapping paper. True beauty exists in the glow of their eyes as they wonder and anticipate what could be in that gift for them. I also love to soak in the georgeous smile on my wife's face as she prepares to feed all the gathering family members.

There really is nothing like the Christmas season, beginning with Thanksgiving, to remind us of all of our blessings and to especially remind us of the sacrifices made by our elders that provided these blessings. The most important sacrifice is that of our Savior who laid his life down for us to create the bridge to eternal life with Heavenly Father.

Tis the season we celebrate Jesus's birth and speculate in awe of what that birth means for all of mankind.

I found a story on World Net Daily that I wanted to share.
What did Jesus Christ of Nazareth look like as a boy?

While no one knows for certain, forensic experts are now using computer images from the Shroud of Turin along with historical data and other ancient images to make an educated guess.

The group points out the facial proportions between the nose and eyebrow, as well as the shape of the jaw are identical to those on the shroud, which is a piece of linen some believe to be the actual burial cloth of Jesus after he was crucified.

The resulting image shows a fair-skinned child with blond, wavy hair and dark eyes.

"We made a rigorous effort based on the Shroud of Turin, but it's clear that the data at our disposal were limited," police official Carlo Bui told the Italian paper Corriere della Sera. "Let's say we have made an excellent hypothesis."

The New Testament does refer to linens in connection with Jesus' burial, recounted when Jesus' disciples went to his tomb:

Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre. So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in. Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself. (John 20:3-7)

And so we have this as the result of this forensic research...
Is it for real? Who knows... it really doesn't matter.
It did provide me a few chills and definatelly reminded me of the reason we celebrate the Christmas Holiday. Isn't that all that really matters? I hope all of you out there in the ether get touched with the sacredness of the Christmas holiday. Teach your children what the real meaning of Christmas is. Absorb the magic and wonder of the season and take an inventory of all around you. It may still have existed without the birth of Jesus but would it have had the same significance? I don't think so.

With love,

The UN's Abu Ghraib?

HOME-MADE pornographic videos shot by a United Nations logistics expert in the Democratic Republic of Congo have sparked a sex scandal that threatens to become the UN’s Abu Ghraib.

The expert was a Frenchman who worked at Goma airport as part of the UN’s $700 million-a-year effort to rebuild the war-shattered country. When police raided his home they discovered that he had turned his bedroom into a studio for videotaping and photographing sex sessions with young girls.

The bed was surrounded by large mirrors on three sides, according to a senior Congolese police officer. On the fourth side was a camera that he could operate from the bed with a remote control.

When the police arrived the man was allegedly about to rape a 12-year-old girl sent to him in a sting operation. Three home-made porn videos and more than 50 photographs were found.

The case has highlighted the apparently rampant sexual exploitation of Congolese girls and women by the UN’s 11,000 peacekeepers and 1,000 civilians at a time when the UN is facing many problems, including the Iraqi “oil-for-food” scandal and accusations of sexual harassment by senior UN staff in Geneva and New York.

Where's the media outrage? Is it reserved only for American Soldiers who dared to place women's underwear on a poor terrorist's head? Or when they dare to wrap one of them in an Israeli flag?

The African Continent, one of the most chaotic and dangerous places on Earth (as well as the home of the UN's leader Kofi Annan) flies completely under the radar of our media as dopey reporters trip over themselves to twist anything that comes out of the mouths of our government leaders in an effort to destroy their characters in order to advance their own careers in our liberal media complex.

Humanitarians (primarily from America) seem to be the only people who are actually doing anything about any of these atrocities as the UN 'peacekeepers' sit around paying little African girls with jelly or a few bucks to lure them into fully wired rape rooms.

This is the same continent that has mass murder of Christians, dictators stealing plantations from white landowners, and rampant spread of sexually transmitted diseases.

See what happens to an area of our planet left up to the UN to care for?

WorldNetDaily has further details and more specific charges against the UN in this Dec 24th article.

The Hillary Chronicles

In the next installment of the Hillary Chronicles we have this...
Let's just get this out of the way now: She's running.

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton has a re-election campaign in front of her in 2006, but as far as many around her are concerned, the train has already departed for a destination two years farther out- the Presidency.
"She is going to focus on going for Senate and getting that out of the way, but the eye is always on the prize," a former aide to Mrs. Clinton told The Observer.

Mrs. Clinton currently is gearing up for her re-election with a campaign whose cost and intensity are taking on the scale of a national race. The first, slightly frantic fund-raising letters already have gone out, warning of coming Republican attacks. And a veteran national Democratic player, Ann Lewis, will start work at Mrs. Clinton's Washington, D.C., offices in January. Mrs. Clinton is on a path to finish her re-election campaign in November 2006 and- assuming she isn't the first New York Democrat in a century to lose a Senate seat- pivot swiftly toward the White House. A loyal circle of advisors led by her husband is urging her on, allies say, despite the doubts that some supporters will express privately.

And so the question isn't whether Mrs. Clinton is running for President. It's whether it's already too late to pull the brakes.

As I said in a previous post a week after the Presidential Elections, we're going to see a character transformation like none other with 4 years to do so. It's obviously already begun with her cutting from her party with her new immigration stance, obviously smelling the opposition's weakness on the issue, not to mention her new found love of the military, and stance against gay marriage.
The Washington Times recently ran a story arguing that she is "more conservative than President Bush" on illegal immigration- a notion which made the gleeful rounds of Fox News punditry, despite its being based on comments drawn from a year-old radio interview.
And while there's no real evidence of a rightward shift on immigration, Clinton supporters say the centerpiece of her drive toward the Presidency is a careful self-definition in the Senate, where she has carved herself a place to the right of where some of her allies, and her critics, might have expected to find her. (Though anyone who paid much attention to the eight years her husband was President might have been less surprised.) She supported the invasion of Iraq from a perch on the Armed Services Committee, for example, and opposes gay marriage.

Amazing eh? Naaaa... not really. Who would you like to see her run against?

Time's Man Of The Year

New York – President George W. Bush has been named TIME magazine’s 2004 Person of the Year.

“For sticking to his guns (literally and figuratively), for reshaping the rules of politics to fit his ten-gallon-hat leadership style and for persuading a majority of voters this time around that he deserved to be in the White House for another four years, we name George W. Bush as TIME’s Person of the Year for 2004,” writes managing editor Jim Kelly in a letter to readers.

I'm suprised that it wasn't Michael Moore or Kofi Annan!
Must be CYA time in the Editor's office at Time. (CYA= Cover Your A**)

Week in review

Ok, I've been slacking a bit lately so I'm gonna do some hyper-ranting...

Wanna find out how the network channels do with their portrayal of religion in this country (primarily Christianity naturally)? Read this.
( - A new study by a television watchdog group finds that televisions treatment of religion has become increasingly negative and doesn't reflect the viewpoints of a majority of Americans.

In the Homeland Security Department we have this...
In a series of investigative stories, The News disclosed that Kerik broke rules on accepting gifts, developed close ties with an allegedly mob-linked city contractor and maintained a secret downtown apartment for simultaneous extramarital liaisons with two women.

Did we dodge a bullet with this guy as our Homeland Security Department head? Perhaps, although I'm willing to bet that he'd be an awesome leader. This background does damn him and will not be allowed to bring down the leadership values the Bush Administration is attempting to portray. Although his background is also reason enough to give him the job.

Oh, and thank heavens a member of the Republican leadership is finally able to stand up and explain to the ignoramuses the reasons for our military's lack of armor.

U.S. Sen. James M. Inhofe said Thursday that cutbacks during the Clinton administration resulted in the lack of armor and other material faced by U.S. troops in Iraq.
"Eight years of Bill Clinton decimated the military to almost half of what it was in 1990," he said during a stop in Muskogee.
The Oklahoma Republican, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said that in 1991, U.S. armed forces were armed with "a Reagan military," and had more funding and ordinance.
However under Clinton, projects were cut and "modernization stopped."

Doesn't anyone remember the "I voted for the 87 billion dollars before I voted against it" C'mon, you can name that tune in two notes. A non issue drummed up by an ambitious reporter. If it leads to our troops being better armored then it was a good thing. You'll be hard pressed to convince me that the only reason our military will be better armored is because of this "story" because this has been a process in the works since the Bush administration took over!

Now we have the signing into law of the new "Intelligence Overhaul Bill"
"Instead of massed armies, we face stateless networks. We face killers who hide in our own cities," Bush said in a somber ceremony in an ornate Commerce Department auditorium where the treaty creating NATO was signed. "To inflict great harm on our country, America's enemies need to be only right once. Our intelligence and law enforcement professionals in our government must be right every single time."

Isn't anyone else concerned about the emergence of an "Intelligence Czar"? The fact that the position is referred to with a Russian monicker is creepy enough.

Here's what Jimmy Carter's master negotiating skills that won him a Nobel Peace Prize resulted in. What a joke...
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - North Korea could flight test at any time a ballistic missile potentially capable of reaching parts of the United States with a nuclear-weapon-sized payload, the State Department's top arms control official said on Friday.

Ok, I'm toast tonight.... I'll be back tomorrow for an update on news and views...

Sign this guy Up!

Now here's someone who has at least half a brain in their head.
SAN JOSE, Costa Rica - Osama bin Laden (news - web sites) take note: You wouldn't be safe in Costa Rica. A startled taxi driver shot and wounded a jokester wearing a plastic mask of the al-Qaida leader, police said Tuesday.

His first instinct when he thought he saw Osama bin Laden? Shoot the dude! The CIA needs to recruit this guy!
Police declined to detain Sandoval, saying he had believed he was acting in self-defense.

People, don't mess with taxi drivers.

Take this Michael Moore

Eat your heart out Michael Moore. Here's someone who has trumped you in the modern day race for the ignorant mind.
Or shall we say the race for the not so far in the future Emmy catagory nominee of "Best Propagandist".
Thanks again to Little Green Footballs for an excellent post.
This is who we're fighting people... please pay attention, our kids lives depend upon it.

Insight into the fall of Modern Day Europe

I've always loved J.R.R. Tolkien's fantastic tales. How prophetic they were to our modern times. The allegorical references to societies of the past, present, and future are uncanny. One of my favorite writers, Victor Davis Hanson writes an excellent article on the current state of Europe and the precipice that European societies are dangling on.
Well worth the read if you have the time, make time to read this eventually.

The Reagan Prophecies

As long as Bush adheres to the brilliance and guts of Ronald Reagan in his second term, America will continue to be the innovative leader in the world on almost all fronts.
Nearly a quarter-century after the Reagan earthquake first rocked our economy, the aftershocks are still a very real and continuing phenomenon. Every tax cut, every regulatory stranglehold broken, every economic shackle unlocked, and every despot or totalitarian regime toppled increases freedom, creativity and entrepreneurship. And in the ultracompetitive world that has sprung from the ashes, "old line" hegemony and subjugation lose their strength.

As Ronald Reagan said in 1981, "We who live in free market societies believe that growth, prosperity and ultimately human fulfillment, are created from the bottom up, not the government down. Only when the human spirit is allowed to invent and create, only when individuals are given a personal stake in deciding economic policies and benefiting from their success--only then can societies remain economically alive, dynamic, progressive and free. Trust the people."

Even Clinton was inspired by one of the greatest World Leaders in history:
President Clinton contributed to the Reagan revolution by declaring that the "era of big government is over." He signed into law welfare reform and Nafta, continuing the trend toward more personal responsibility, less government and more competition.

And the result?
In the past 24 years, the top marginal tax rate has been cut in half, while dividend and capital-gains tax rates have been reduced significantly. These lower tax rates have spurred massive new investment and attracted talent and brainpower from around the world. The U.S. has led the way in a global and technological revolution.

The result of these changes is a New World Order--one in which competition comes from everywhere. A growing number of people have "skin in the game" and a "personal stake" in public policy. This has created an American population, as we saw in the election, that values greater individual freedom and supports government actions that bolster economic growth and wealth creation, not wealth redistribution.

Even better, these policies have allowed an explosion in information dissemination and business ownership.
The Internet, its irreverent blogs and cable TV are making information ubiquitous and stealing market share from major networks. Minority groups have also been lifted by the years of strong growth. The entrepreneurial society has created opportunity for all and increased wealth for many. Union membership is declining, while stock ownership is rising. Tensions between labor, management and shareholders must be worked out in the marketplace. Free-market capitalism works best when business owners and investors work toward the highest possible profits, not toward the latest fad in social responsibility.

The foresight and steadfastness of the Reagan philosophy had altered the course of world history forever and for the better.
The U.S. is living through an entrepreneurial renaissance of historic proportions. It started 24 years ago and the tectonic plates continue to shift. Part of this process will be an accelerated upheaval in the centers of power. The Europeans are trying to move in this direction with a push towards freer labor markets and lower taxes. Many will fight this process every step of the way. Others will "trust the people."

We were blessed to live in the presence of this great and inspired man.

It's only fair

In the fairness of the times...
And for further provocation...
I thought I'd balance the gender equation on my site by discussing another Biologically based topic. The Evolution of the Breast.
Sorry pervs, this is entirely in the interest of the biological content of the subject. Come on, haven't you ever wondered where those amazing, uhh, aparatuses evolved from?
Human female breasts may have become permanently enlarged secondary to sexual selection, as they potentially resembled the double ovoid region of the distended buttocks, which in turn are employed to signal appeasement as well as sexuality in primates.

Hmm... chew on that one for a while.
Get your minds out of the gutter!

Burnin' the Jeans... err Genes?

I KNEW there was a reason I sit the way I do! I remember being repremanded by certain socialites that the way I sit isn't proper. Yeah so I liked to hang back and just sit with my legs wide open, so what? There is nothing wrong with that unless you have inadequate coverage, if you know what I mean. So this article explains it all...
Past research shows that higher scrotal temperatures can damage sperm and affect fertility.

To keep the testicles at an ideal temperature — and for greater comfort — men naturally sit with their legs further apart than women.

Come to find out while researching the secret to my fertility, the younger generation of men are sitting in less than advantageous positions because of the proliferation of lap tops! This could also spell disaster for the human race, much like The Petro Paradox!
The conspiracies are abundant are they not?

The Petro Paradox

Real "Conservatives" understand The Petro Paradox.
That true conservation is the preservation of those things that keep our ability to exist on this planet as a human race possible.

I think it's time for a new Manhattan Project.

Oil is a finite resource...
...yes I think that we should be drilling more domestically, the Caribou will live, at least for now.
The new found capitalism in China and India will create exponential increases in world consumption of oil.
Oil is a finite resource...
Not to mention the potential of countries all around the world to join the wild bandwagon of liberation... all through the middle east, africa, asia, south america...
The engine to all these economies to come to join in the free markets will have to run on Oil... and have I made it clear that oil is a finite resource?

I think it's time for a New Manhattan Project.

Get the worlds best and the brightest.
Give them all the necessary resources, all the most updated studies and give them a time limit and secrecy.
5 years to come up with a revolutionary, practical solution to find infinite resources to construct the energy of our society on.
I know what your thinking... "Oh, create a new federal department and beaurocracy that's completely redundant to dozens of other federal and state departments!"
Well, yeah... but they can only exist for 5 years, and at the end of that five years we will have to have a soluable and practical solution that can be pulled off over the course of the next century or we jail them for life for derelict of duty. If they happen to actually pull it off (which I personally think it's possible) all those wastes of governemental beaurocracies can actually be given some long term goals to all work towards.


All I know something eventually needs to be done.
I don't think that not doing so will bring about the immediate collapse of our civilization as the author of the above article suggests in his first paragraph, but wouldn't having a long term solution to international oil dependence be a nice thing to have in the bank for our kids? I know, I'm not full of solutions myself. I can raise the question and throw it out to you tho so there!

Our generation can solve this, I think it's one of our great generation's missions.
The proven possibilities are there, they're easily available. Our infrastructure, attitudes and perspective has to change. That happens when a well thought out and practical plan emerges and we take it on as an United States. *grin* Pipe dream? Perhaps... money talks, BS walks.

Am I just BS'ing or is this something that should be discussed? If it's being discussed on a long term scale somewhere in our government or perhaps in some think tank will someone refer me to some references???

It's still a paradox to me.

UPDATE: (12/11/04)
SEE "Anything into Oil"
Thanks Alan!

Declaration of War by UN

Consider this: The Oil For Food Scandal has netted the Saddam Hussein regime over 20 Billion dollars of mostly French, German, and Russian currency, much of which went to the arming and equiping of the Iraqi military... also consider that over 1300 of our American soldiers have died liberating the Iraqi people from this same dictator. Does this not lead to the deduction that the UN (who had full disclosure of these events) has indirectly declared war on the US with their complicity and even profiteering of the Iraqi sanctions? If this does not de-legitmize the United Nations as a peace keeping organization, as well as lay bare their true intensions, nothing will. Those who still tout the UN as a logistical operation to further peace on Earth is refusing to see things as they actually are.

The head of the UN, Kofi Annan, needs to be held accountable for these actions. Especially considering that his own son benefitted directly from these under the table dealings, despite Kofi's "suprise".

First things first. Kick Kofi's gang out of NYC and send them packing to Paris. Then Kofi should be held in front of an American Military Tribunal for war crimes and sent to prision for the rest of his life. If we can drop the hammer on the heads of Enron and Worldcom for their scandalous dealings, why not the head of an organization that has feigned ignorance over one of the most insidious scandals of all time that has lead to the death of over a thousand of our best and brightest? Time to drop the hammer on the phony "United Nations". Their only obvious purpose on this Earth is to thwart the advancement and development of free nations across the face of the Earth, all the while lining their pockets with blood money. Are our soldiers lives worth this? Of course not... Time to recognize that War has been declared on the USA, not only by terrorist organizations but by the United Nations itself.

Think the Clintonistas were not involved? Guess again... Check this out.

"Moderate" Muslim Leaders

Click on picture above to see a slideshow of pictures of how babies are trained to kill in the middle east while still in diapers.

Thanks to this post from Little Green Footballs, you think that the "moderate" leaders of Islam fit our defination of moderation? Maybe you should hear what they have to say straight from their own mouths on their own television "news" programs. These guys make David Duke look like an extreme makeover of Ghandi. It's time that mainstream media knew our enemy and condemned them with their own words.

To see a nice little clip from a cute kiddie show shown to Palistinian children? Check this out! Now this makes the muppets look like they've gone bankrupt and joined forces with the crack addict under the bridge! This is complete insanity folks... Is it any wonder these people grow up to sing songs to Allah while sawing off peoples' head with rusty serated kitchen knives? They've been driven insane by propaganda that would've made Hitler proud.
