U.S.: Signs Point to Syria Using Chlorine Gas in Attacks

(Video, Source: CNN) - The Obama administration and its allies believe the Syrian government may have used chlorine gas in a deadly attack this month on its own people, several U.S. officials and other diplomats told CNN.

The alleged assault that killed at least two and affected dozens of others occurred in the village of Kafr Zeita, a rebel-held area.

While there is no firm proof as the matter is being looked into, several U.S. officials and Western diplomats say the United States believes the regime of Bashar al-Assad is responsible because it has such chemicals and the means to deliver them.

Fukushima radiation killing our children, govt hides truth - former mayor

(Source: RT) - Katsutaka Idogawa, former mayor of Futaba, a town near the disabled Fukushima nuclear plant, is warning his country that radiation contamination is affecting Japan’s greatest treasure – its children.

Asked about government plans to relocate the people of Fatuba to the city of Iwaki, inside the Fukushima prefecture, Idogawa criticized the move as a “violation of human rights.”
Compared with Chernobyl, radiation levels around Fukushima “are four times higher,” he told RT’s Sophie Shevardnadze, adding that “it’s too early for people to come back to Fukushima prefecture.”

California drought: Food banks drying up, too

Waterless Land
(Source: SF Gate) - The effects of California's drought could soon hit the state's food banks, which serve 2 million of its poorest residents.

Fresh produce accounts for more than half the handouts at Bay Area food banks, but with an estimated minimum of 500,000 acres to be fallowed in California, growers will have fewer fruits and vegetables to donate.

Moving in with parents becomes more common for the middle-aged

(Source: LA Times) - Debbie Rohr lives with her husband and twin teenage sons in a well-tended three-bedroom home in Salinas.

The ranch-style house has a spacious kitchen that looks out on a yard filled with rosebushes. It's a modest but comfortable house, the type that Rohr, 52, pictured for herself at this stage of life.

She just never imagined that it would be her childhood home, a return to a bedroom where she once hung posters of Olivia Newton-John and curled up with her beloved Mrs. Beasley doll.

Is the Easter Holiday Biblical, How Does God Feel About It?

Is the Easter Holiday Biblical, How Does God Feel About It? - Jesus Yeshua Passover Lamb
By: Brandon T. Ward
- Published: 3-17-2013
- Revised: 3-25-2014
Have you ever asked yourself the following questions: "Are the traditions of Easter Biblical? Why is the Resurrection of Jesus Christ called Easter? Are Easter rabbits and eggs mentioned in the Bible?"

It will shock most Christians to discover that none of the traditions of Easter are Biblical. As a matter of fact, Easter is the name of a heathen god and found in the Bible only one time in the book of Acts. Unfortunately, this word was placed in scripture by error, the word Easter is a mis-translation. Meaning it is not in the original manuscripts! The correct word is "Pascha" in the manuscripts, meaning Passover.

Before we start our Bible study, let us ask our Father for wisdom and understanding of His Word, in Jesus Name Amen.

Psalms 27: "Whom Shall I Fear?"

By: Brandon T. Ward

When we consider God’s promises it is important to remember they do not necessarily apply to everyone. Rather, they apply to those who love our Father, those who seek after Him and those who accomplish the tasks required of us in His Word. “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose,” (Romans 8:28).

The next element is to understand what God’s promises are. God Himself has said, “Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified,” (Isaiah 43:26). God is saying, tell Me what My promises are so I may Bless you with them. God knows what His promises are, but He wants to see if you know them or not.

This Means War: US To Target Putin's Personal $40 Billion Stash

Putin Holding Gold Bar
(Source: ZeroHedge) - While the White House has continually threatened further sanctions against Russia for non-de-escalation (even as it un-de-escalates itself), the specifics of the additional sanctions have been sparse. German CEO warnings over blowback from economic sanctions... the "nonsense" of replacing Russian gas with US gas... the Russian warnings of "interdependence" and "boomerangs"... all reduce the West's arsenal of financial sanctions. But, as The Times of London reports, perhaps the US has found a crucial pain point for Putin - a sanctions regime that would target Putin's personal wealth, which includes a reported $40 billion stashed in Swiss bank accounts.

As Hayes pressed Fiore about her position on the standoff, she relentlessly criticized the government’s handling of the situation.

“Why are you there near the Bundy ranch tonight celebrating?” Hayes asks.

“Questioning why the heck the federal government felt the need to come in armed to collect an unpaid bill. I mean, that was pretty bold and blatant,” Fiore said. “I mean, generally when my — when our federal government comes in armed, we’re expecting a bigger problem… We will not allow governance by gunpoint, ever.”

The "Shocking" Buying Spree Of America's Mysterious Third Largest Treasury Holder Ramps Higher

Tower of Basel
WEB Notes: As the Federal Reserve continues to "taper" an entity in Belgium is purchasing treasuries at a record setting pace.

(Source: ZeroHedge) - When we reported last month that in a shocking twist, "Belgium" holdings of Treasurys had soared by a massive amount in the past three months, making the tiny country the third largest holder of US paper, our Belgian readers took offsense alleging it is impossible that Belgium itself could be buying all this paper, explaining it was all Euroclear. Well, yes: we know and noted that, which is why those same readers probably should have actually read the part in the post which said: "our question is: just who is Belgium being used as a front for?
