the IPCC and Al Gore lied....

"In the last assessment report, Climate Change 2007, the IPCC predicted that 20 to 30 percent of all animal and plant species faced a high risk for extinction should average global temperatures rise by 2 to 3 degrees Celsius (3.6 to 5 degrees Fahrenheit). The current draft report says that scientific uncertainties have "become more apparent" since 2007.

It notes that key environmental processes and life form characteristics were given scant consideration in the models -- the ability of plants and animals to adapt to new climatic conditions, for example. Consequently, the new assessment report will not include any concrete figures regarding the percentage of species that could become extinct as a result of global warming."

The Vatican is a political enterprise.

Has it's own bank.

They hung a corrupt Banker, Roberto Calvi, known as God's Banker because of his connections with The Vatican, under The Blackfriars Bridge in central London.
He was hung in full Free Mason execution style.

Known as "Mafia, Masons and Murder" back in 2005. It was discovered Bishops were/are connected with or are Free Mason Members ... But, nobody wants to ... Old news really.

Anyway, Free Masons and The Vatican are wealthy, and if one is connected,$40M easy.

Elgin officials shocked by child porn investigation of ex-Rep. Farnham
Federal agents search for indications of 'sexually explicit conduct'
March 24, 2014|Stephanie K. Baer, Tribune reporter
Former Rep. Keith Farnham, 66, announced his resignation Wednesday, one day after he won the Democratic primary, running unopposed.(E. Jason Wambsgans, Chicago Tribune)
Reports that federal agents were looking for evidence of child pornography when they seized computers from the Elgin district office of former state Rep. Keith Farnham shocked local officials who said the lawmaker was well-liked and active in the community.
"I couldn't even fathom it. I was stunned," said former Elgin Mayor Ed Schock, adding that Farnham always worked on the city's behalf.
Federal agents were searching for documents "pertaining to the possession, receipt or distribution of child pornography" as well as computer files, copies and negatives of child pornography or any documents that depicted minors "engaged in sexually explicit conduct," according to a search warrant released Friday.
Farnham, 66, a Navy veteran who ran a painting business in Elgin before running for office, announced his resignation Wednesday, saying he had been "battling serious health issues for a number of years." He won the Democratic primary the day before, running unopposed.
Farnham told the Tribune on Monday that he is receiving treatment for bladder cancer but that his main struggle is with pulmonary fibrosis, a condition that causes lung tissue to scar.
He declined to comment further on his resignation and the federal investigation.
Elgin Mayor David Kaptain, who referred to Farnham as a close friend, said he knew of the former representative's fight with cancer over the past few years — a battle the two had in common.
"He and I were both at a point where we were starting to move on … kind of having it under control probably two or three months ago," Kaptain said.
"I've worked well with him since he's been in the state legislature and I'm sorry to hear that he has problems."
Kane County Board member Joseph Haimann, D-Carpentersville, said he was surprised to learn about the investigation.
"If you talk to anybody, they all have nothing but good to say about him," Haimann said. "I thought very highly of him."
Farnham joined the General Assembly in 2009 to represent the 43rd District, which includes parts of Elgin, Carpentersville, East Dundee and South Elgin.
Before running for office, he worked as a painting contractor all over the Chicago area. In the early 2000s he served as president of the Finishing Contractors Association of Chicago board of directors.
I thought the new jewelry was a coat hanger for the democrats and now I find out it is hand cuffs. This Illinois democrat guy you cited left because he was 'sick'-I guess so.

I didn't know these two were going down at the same time:
In both his and Yee’s cases, the Capitol was treated to the specter of FBI agents wading through offices in search of evidence.
At almost the same time that Yee was taken into custody, a Southern Democrat, Mayor Patrick Cannon of Charlotte, N.C., was arrested on a federal complaint that charged him with theft, bribery and extortion.
According to U.S. Atty. Anne M. Tompkins, the complaint alleges that Cannon repeatedly took bribes from undercover FBI agents—the last time accepting $20,000 in cash in a meeting in the mayor’s office. Cannon’s arrest followed by days the resignation of Rhode Island House Speaker Gordon Fox after investigators involved in a secret inquiry searched through the Democrat’s home and office.
