"After a spate of violence in the past two weeks, the populist jingoism of ham-handed solutions is raising its head. “Deport them all,” scream some, or “bulldoze their houses.” Shoot them, seal up their neighborhoods, ban them from leaving, ban them from moving, frisk them, stripsearch them all. This cacophony can seem like normal rhetoric in a society gripped by fear and in which there is a conflict between the rights of some citizens not to be subjected to “whatever means necessary” and the attempt to safeguard the rights of others."

For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head.
For as ye have drunk upon my holy mountain, so shall all the heathen drink continually, yea, they shall drink, and they shall swallow down, and they shall be as though they had not been.
But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.
And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for the LORD hath spoken it. ( Obediah 1:15-18 )
Some malware will hold your computer to ransom.....which is why its always good to keep a backup of all your photos and ADSL serttings etc on a portable drive, so if you have to splatter your computer you can easily get back and running again.
The problem you have with new version sof windows is often people try and put them on older machines, which have old chip sets and older CPUs and older peripherals ( like printers etc ) and so they dont work properly. Bad drivers can lock up windows and cause freezes and restarts.
Win 10 is really for the latest hardware and peripherals - naturally MS will say it runs on older stuff........ahem........, but as usually is the case only with "vanilla" drivers at the most basic settings and even then.....and dont forget MS seems to be a marketing company first and foremost, and makes technology second.
I've been in the IT space for 30 years now, and my suggestion is go back to windows 7 ( not vista ) and stay there until win 10 has all the bugs worked out of it which might take 1-2 years. That said, I also think MS is forcing people to go up to latest hardware by not writing drivers for older stuff or porting across old drivers and putting in marginal ammounts of effor to make it sort of work. Seen that a few times.....
Win 10 is really also designed for tablets and portable computing - PCs are sort of a secondary consideration now as people rush to go wirelsss everything ( which I think is a backwards step, IMHO ) but it leaves out real people who live in houses and have ADSL via phone line.....
Almost all of the school-aged jihadists and students who have been radicalised in Australia have come from state-run public schools and not religious schools.
As debate rages about the motive that drove the 15-year-old boy Farhad Jabar to commit an act of terror when he killed NSW Police employee Curtis Cheng earlier this month, it can be revealed that every publicly known teenager who has travelled overseas to fight in Iraq or Syria or is believed to have been radicalised, attended government-run high schools in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland.
The revelation comes amid concerns that religious teaching and prayer groups in public schools are either not effective enough or have been manipulated by religious groups as a cover for proselytising activities.
Premier Mike Baird announced an audit of prayer sessions at public schools following allegations a year 12 student at Epping Boys High was trying to influence students into adopting his extremist views in the school yard. He has also previously urged public school principals to call a dedicated hotline if they suspect extremist behaviour.
Concerns had also been raised last year about lunchtime religious sessions run by students at another school – East Hills Boys High – after one of the students involved ran away in an apparent attempt to join Islamic State.
Obama Warns Christians: Gay Rights More Important Than Religious Freedom
As Pope Francis flew back to Rome, President Obama issued a stern warning to Christians, warning them their attempts to assert their religious liberty to oppose gay rights would fail.
“We affirm that we cherish our religious freedom and are profoundly respectful of religious traditions,” he insisted during a dramatic speech at a LGTB fundraiser in New York City on Sunday night, praising the progress made on gay rights under his administration. “But we also have to say clearly that our religious freedom doesn’t grant us the freedom to deny our fellow Americans their constitutional rights.”
The fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee was specifically billed as an “LGBT gala” held in New York City in coordination with Obama’s trip to the United Nations Assembly.
During his speech, Obama asserted that his administration was respecting what he described as “genuine concerns” of religious institutions but suggested that Republicans were using the issue just to earn more votes, as they did in 2004.
“America has left the leaders of the Republican Party behind,” he declared proudly.

Is Damascus soon to be flattened., as God has foretold?
1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.
2 The cities of Aroer are forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid.
3 The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria: they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, saith the Lord of hosts.
4 And in that day it shall come to pass, that the glory of Jacob shall be made thin, and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean.
5 And it shall be as when the harvestman gathereth the corn, and reapeth the ears with his arm; and it shall be as he that gathereth ears in the valley of Rephaim.
6 Yet gleaning grapes shall be left in it, as the shaking of an olive tree, two or three berries in the top of the uppermost bough, four or five in the outmost fruitful branches thereof, saith the Lord God of Israel.
7 At that day shall a man look to his Maker, and his eyes shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel.
8 And he shall not look to the altars, the work of his hands, neither shall respect that which his fingers have made, either the groves, or the images.
9 In that day shall his strong cities be as a forsaken bough, and an uppermost branch, which they left because of the children of Israel: and there shall be desolation.
10 Because thou hast forgotten the God of thy salvation, and hast not been mindful of the rock of thy strength, therefore shalt thou plant pleasant plants, and shalt set it with strange slips:
11 In the day shalt thou make thy plant to grow, and in the morning shalt thou make thy seed to flourish: but the harvest shall be a heap in the day of grief and of desperate sorrow.
12 Woe to the multitude of many people, which make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations, that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters!
13 The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but God shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind.
14 And behold at eveningtide trouble; and before the morning he is not. This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us.
( Isaiah 17 )

The irony - conservative Catholic Rhodes Scholar ( One World Govt ) Tony Abbott is toppled by Rhodes Scholar ( One World Govt ) Malcolm Turnbull Turnbull is a wealthy merchant banker, globalist and is pro-homosexual marriage Abbott is a conservative roman catholic and anti-homosexual marriage.
If the globalists are true to form, this leadership spill was sold as being about "consistent leadership" - but that I suspect is nonsense - its a smoke screen to advance The New Sodom and Gamorrah ..... in Australia....and push the gay marriage thing.
Abbott I suspect was blocking it from happening, so hes been... removed......

"Opposing gay marriage will decide the Prime Ministership
February 6, 2015 Brian Greig
As talk turns to dumping Tony Abbott for either Julie Bishop or Malcolm Turnbull, many people are excited by the prospect of gay marriage becoming a real possibility within this election cycle.
Ever since Abbott unilaterally ruled out a conscience vote for his coalition colleagues on marriage equality (bypassing party room consultation), Abbott has been the bulwark blocking this reform in Canberra since Kevin Rudd's first term.
A genuine conscience vote on this matter from both major parties would now see it sail through the parliament, ending the discrimination. Labor allows a free vote on this and so the Liberals hold the key.
A free vote has been the recipe for success in many other countries including New Zealand, England and Canada, where conservative Prime Ministers including John Keys, David Cameron and Stephen Harper not only welcomed a free vote but supported reform. Their leadership mattered.
If Abbott is replaced by either Bishop or Turnbull, it's seen as a game-changer for the campaign towards equal marriage. Both Bishop and Turnbull support equal marriage, albeit that Bishop has towed the party line as a cabinet minister to fall in behind the Prime Minister.
However, a commitment to blocking equal marriage in the choosing of a federal Liberal leader should not be underestimated. Given that Turnbull is very publically supportive of equal marriage and Bishop has cynically been 'supportive of the current laws', it is highly likely that this issue will be used as a wedge to split party room votes between these two.
God seems to be letting everyone show very clearly who they are for - God or Satan.....there will be no fence sitters.....time is running out
False teachers' teachings can only take root in fetile "soil" , because people choose not to follow sound doctrine, and the devil has been "tilling" the minds of people, believers and non-believers alike, to be ready for his false gospel.
Look at how prevelent sin is - in many ways nmost countries are as spiritually decayed and corrupt as Sodom and Gomorrah were.
Think about the un-sound doctrine so-called "churches" teach - no wonder people will believe the False Prophet when he turns up....
God said to build your house upon the rock of his Word, not the sand of feel-good-ism or false teachings.
God and His Word are the only true rock, accept no substitutes.....
Now consider that most world govts are signed up to and obey the UN.
What does that tell you?
Note they all willingly give thier power to the beast:
"And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth."
