Bone Fragments May Be Those of the Apostle Peter

No.179860 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Bone fragments discovered in an 11th century Catholic church near Rome were labeled as belonging to the apostle Peter.

http://www.trunews.com/article/bone-fragments-may-be-those-of-the-apostle-peter

For centuries, Christians were taught the apostle Peter was martyred for his faith by the Roman Emperor Nero in the year 67, and his body was buried beneath what is now St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican. But a new report suggests at least a part of him may have been moved in the 11th century and placed inside the alter of another Catholic church:

>During restoration works in the Roman church of Santa Maria in Cappella, workers have found several ancient pots that supposedly contain bone fragments from four early Christian martyrs and from four of the first popes, including St. Peter the Apostle. The inscription on the stone covering the lead-lidded pots states they contain bones from several martyrs including Hippolytus and Anastasius, and from Popes Cornelius, Callixtus, Felix and Peter. The church of Santa Maria in Cappella, owned by the Doria Pamphilj family, is located in the Trastevere neighborhood of Rome and was consecrated on March 25, 1090.The bone fragments don’t directly challenge the millennial tradition that Saint Peter was martyred on the Vatican Hill and buried beneath the present-day Basilica bearing his name. During certain period in history, relics of important saints were regularly split up. If authentic, the relics from these early Christian saints would have been collected from various sites and placed inside the medieval altar where they have now been discovered.

The report concludes forensic examinations will eventually determine if the find does in fact contain the partial remains of Peter. The Vatican believes it discovered his remains during an archeological dig in 1939.

GOP schedules 90second debate, no markups, no CBO score, no conference for healthcare repeal bill

No.180413 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
The Senate has less than two weeks, and just a handful of working days, to repeal Obamacare and block-grant Medicaid with a mere 50 votes.

“This vehicle that we’re using turns into a pumpkin on September 30th if we don’t get something else done,” Sen. Mike Rounds (R-SD) warned Tuesday.

With the clock ticking, Senate Republicans have thrown together a crude imitation of regular order in an attempt to quickly check all the necessary boxes and win over their colleagues who are sticklers for process. Next week, they plan to plow through a single hearing, receive an incomplete analysis from the Congressional Budget Office, and if they shore up the votes, take it to the Senate floor for a whopping 90 seconds of debate before launching into a vote-a-rama.

>Some Republican lawmakers are less than pleased.

>“That’s problematic because that is part of the problem of short-circuiting the process,” Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) complained, lamenting that the last-minute repeal effort is having the side effect of killing the bipartisan health care stabilization bill she and others have spent months negotiating.

>Despite their paeans about respecting “regular order,” and barring any surprise defections or changes, this is the process the GOP will use over the next week to take one last run at repealing the Affordable Care Act.

Partial CBO report

>Early next week, the Congressional Budget Office will release a “preliminary assessment” of the Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson bill that won’t include information about what would happen to insurance premiums or how many people could lose their health insurance if the plan became law.

GOOGLE: Refunds to Advertisers Over Fake Traffic...

Google and Its Partners Will Issue Refunds to Advertisers Over Fake Traffic

http://archive.fo/2017.09.21-223239/https://www.wsj.com/articles/google-and-its-partners-will-issue-refunds-to-advertisers-over-fake-traffic-1506029542

Google confirmed Thursday it will issue refunds for ads bought through its systems that ran on websites with fake traffic, and said a handful of its partners have agreed to do the same.

The Wall Street Journal reported in August that Google was issuing refunds to some advertisers after ads purchased through its DoubleClick Bid Manager tool ended up running on websites with fraudulent traffic. At the time, Google was only prepared to reimburse advertisers for the “platform fee,” which ranged from 7% to 10% of the total ad spending. That reflected the fee those advertisers paid to use Google’s ad-buying tools. The rest of the money flows through to dozens of online ad exchanges, which connect marketers to ad space across a vast number of websites through real-time auctions. At issue is when ads run on sites with fraudulent traffic, including those loaded or clicked by software programs known as “bots” instead of humans. In a blog post, Google said a handful of major exchanges have now agreed to issue full refunds for fraudulent ad space that was purchased.

“Supply partners like AppNexus, Index Exchange, OpenX, Teads, Telaria and DoubleClick Ad Exchange have been very supportive of these changes and have committed to provide advertisers with refunds for invalid traffic detected up to 30-days after monthly billing,” the blog post read. The ad industry has been working aggressively to tackle fraud. Some $6.5 billion in ad spending will be wasted this year to fraud, down 10% from 2016, according to a report released in May by the Association of National Advertisers and ad-fraud detection firm WhiteOps.

Number of people seeking asylum in Canada at levels not seen since 2009

During a briefing Monday with immigration organizations in New York City, Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen said based on current trends, Canada could see 40,000 claimants by the end of the year, according to Conservative immigration critic Michelle Rempel, who was in the room. Hussen's office confirmed her account.
"Given the global forced displacement and forced migration, this is now a public policy concern," Rempel said.
"Nobody is saying that this is going to stop."
At current levels, the federal and provincial governments are looking at a bill of at least $353.9 million to $548.8 million to process claims and provide the required services -- the cost per claim ranges from $12,900 to $20,000, the Immigration Department says.
Those numbers don't take into account the cost of deporting failed claimants, nor the special measures rolled out to manage the sudden summer spike in border arrivals -- it's too early to know that price tag, the department says.

There Is A Massive Network Of Muslims Kidnapping Christian Girls And Selling Them Into Sex Slavery

No.180343 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
A former Muslim turned Christian has admitted to being part of a massive network in Egypt targeting Christian girls. After kidnapping the girls, they would then sell the girls to rich Muslim men to be sex slaves:
An Egyptian man has shared horrifying details about how Egyptian authorities are aiding networks of abductors who get paid by Islamic extremists to kidnap unsuspecting Coptic Christian girls, convert them to Islam and marry them off to Muslim men.
In an interview with World Watch Monitor, a former Muslim man known only by the letter “G” admitted that he used to work alongside a Salafist network of kidnappers before he left the Islamic faith.
The value of the reward for kidnapping a girl is greater when that girl is from a family of greater social standing or the “daughter of a priest,” he added.

“We’ve done everything we could to get our girl back. We even sent a complaint to President Sisi, the interior minister and many other important people,” the priest said. “Her family lives in bitterness and pain, and we don’t know what to do anymore.”
According to G, “[k]idnappers of Christian girls rarely get arrested or brought to the prosecution.”
“For instance, the police don’t report it as a kidnap but say the girl ‘went missing,'” G explained. “This way they cover up the crimes of those they see as their ‘Muslim brothers.'”
Ebram Louis, an Egyptian human rights activist, told World Watch Monitor in 2014 that the police often don’t act on Christian families’ reports of kidnapping “because they are afraid of the militant groups.”
“There is also a state of terror, panic and fear among all the Christians in our village. They worry about their children. No father will allow his daughter to walk on the street alone anymore,” Khalaf stated. “He goes with her or sends her mother or brother to accompany her.”

UN AMBASSADOR UNDER OBAMA ILLEGALLY UNMASKED MORE THAN 260 AMERICANS

No.180338 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power tried to reveal the identity of more than 260 Americans in 2016, according to a Fox News report published Wednesday.
The ex-public official allegedly averaged more than one unmasking request for each formal working day, even continuing her spree towards the final days of the Obama administration.

The House Intelligence Committee’s unmasking probe named Power as a person of interest, along with former Obama national security advisers Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes, as well as former CIA Director John Brennan. Congressional investigators suspect that at least one of them may have tried to obtain the identities of Trump associates through intelligence reports.
The people of interest are all expected to testify before Congress in October, Fox News reports, but likely in classified sessions.
NSA Director Mike Rogers said earlier in March that 20 people at the NSA, along with a few officials at the FBI, the CIA and the U.S. Department of Justice, have the ability to “unmask” Americans whose communications are entangled with the communications of a foreigner. (RELATED: Will The GOP Remake Surveillance Laws After Trump Leaks?)
In a letter to Dan Coats, the director of the office of national intelligence, California Rep. Devin Nunes, a Republican, wrote that investigators within the House Intelligence Committee “learned that one official, whose position had no apparent intelligence-related function, made hundreds of unmasking requests during the final year of the Obama Administration.” He did not specify, however, who the particular person is and what their proper jurisdiction and responsibility was due to their position.

North Korea likens Trump to ‘barking dog’

No.180348 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
North Korea’s top diplomat issued a scornful response to US President Donald Trump on Thursday, likening his United Nations speech to “the sound of a barking dog.”
In his first speech to the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, Trump vowed to “totally destroy” North Korea if the isolated regime threatened the U.S. or its allies.
“If he was thinking he could scare us with the sound of a dog barking, that’s really a dog dream,” North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho told reporters near the UN headquarters in New York.
In Korean, a “dog dream” is one that is absurd or unrealistic.
“There is a saying that goes: ‘Even when dogs bark, the parade goes on’,” Ri added.
Asked by reporters what he thought of Trump calling North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un “rocket man,” Ri quipped: “I feel sorry for his aides.”

China pleas for calm
North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un has said he’s seeking a military “equilibrium” with the United States.
Pyongyang’s repeated missile launches in recent months have drawn worldwide condemnation and prompted the UN Security Council to slap further sanctions on the country just last week.
On Thursday, China warned the crisis was getting more serious by the day and the world could not let it spin out of control.
“We call on all parties to be calmer than calm and not let the situation escalate out of control,” said Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, according to a report from the state-run China News Service.
