Oregon’s Covanta plant incinerates aborted babies to generate electricity

We are reminded again and again, in schools and by the media, of the horrific practices of Nazi Germany — how the Nazis dehumanized Jews as Untermenschen (sub-human), herded them into concentration camps, then exterminated an estimated 6 million of them in gas chambers and even used their fat to make soap.

But that’s EXACTLY what we’re doing to tiny human beings of all races under the guise of a woman’s “reproductive rights”. And it’s lawful!

Since 1980, a total of 1,332,55o,000 unborn babies have been killed worldwide. That’s one BILLION 332 million 550 thousand! In the United States, more than 56 million abortions have been committed since the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision of 1972 making the killing of unborn human beings lawful.

A month ago, news came from across “the pond” that the remains of thousands of aborted and miscarried babies in the UK were incinerated as clinical waste, with some even used to heat hospitals.

Now comes news that this barbaric practice isn’t just in the UK. An energy plant in Oregon, Covanta Waste-to-Energy Facility, burnt aborted babies from Canada to generate electricity.

Covanta Waste-to-Energy Facility

Steven Ertelt reports for Life News, April 23, 2014, that The British Columbia Catholic Herald (BCCH) newspaper reported this week that the remains of aborted and miscarried children from British Columbia are likely being mixed with everyday trash and sent to an energy plant in Oregon.

BCCH contacted the British Columbia Health Ministry and received a response back saying that, in accordance with provincial laws, “biomedical waste,” including “human tissue” and “fetal tissue” are being disposed of through officially approved contractors, and that some of that “waste” is shipped to Oregon:

“The ministry understands that some is transferred to Oregon. There it is incinerated in a waste-to-energy plant.”

According to BCCH, the Oregon plant in question is located in Brooks, Marion County, Oregon.

Following the LifeNews story that received national attention, Oregon’s Marion County Board of Commissioners issued the following statement:

Today the Marion County Board of Commissioners learned that the Covanta Waste-to-Energy Facility located in Marion County may be accepting medical waste containing human tissue from outside sources. In response to an April 21 article in The B.C Catholic, the board took immediate action to temporarily halt the acceptance of boxed medical waste at the facility.

Commissioner Sam Brentano, chair, said, “We provide an important service to the people of this state and it would be a travesty if this program is jeopardized due to this finding. We thought our ordinance excluded this type of material at the waste-to-energy facility. We will take immediate action to ensure a process is developed to prohibit human tissue from future deliveries.

“We are outraged and disgusted that this material could be included in medical waste received at the facility,” said Commissioner Janet Carlson. “We did not know this practice was occurring until today. We are taking immediate action and initiating discussions with Covanta Marion to make certain that this type of medical waste is not accepted in the future.”

The board has called an Emergency Meeting to discuss the issue further for 9 a.m. Thursday, April 24, 2014, in the Board of Commissioners Office located at 555 Court Street NE, 5th Floor, Salem.

In other words, the board is meeting TODAY.

Please pray for Air Force veteran with lymphoma

praying hands2FOTM has powerful prayer warriors and you are needed!

Patriot USA, a good friend of FOTM, is asking us to please pray for a veteran of the U.S. Air Force who blogs as Findalis on “Monkey in the Middle.”

Findalis has just been diagnosed with lymphoma, a type of blood cancer.

From Patriot USA’s post, “Helping a friend in crisis“:

Here is a bit about Findalis from her blog:

“I’m in my 50′s, Female, Widowed, Mother of 2 grown children. I was born in Queens, NY, raised in Brooklyn and have the accent to prove it. I’m a veteran of the US Air Force. I worked as a Translator and Analyst. My theater of expertise was the Middle East. Just an NCO here. No need to salute me. I’m currently in semi-retirement, been outsourced once too often. I’m neither a conservative nor liberal. I am liberal on some issues and conservative on others. I vote my conscience. But on one issue I am very outspoken: The threat of Islamic Fascism and the security of the State of Israel!”

Please PRAY for Findalis and she is currently in the hospital in the Midwest. I am asking everyone who reads this to share this post, pray and if you can, help Findalis out. 

Findalis does not know that I am doing this and if anyone gets mad at me for doing this, I do not care. This person lives alone with a couple of cats and she does not have much in the way of financial security and barely gets by. She served in United States Air Force. Many people have assisted me at times the past couple of years and I really believe in paying it forward and just stepping in when a person needs a hand. She has been a really good friend to me from far away. If we can ease her burden a bit, I KNOW she would be extremely grateful and want to thank each of you.

Findalis, I’m offering my day to you — that our Lord Jesus the Christ envelopes you in a warm blanket of His mercy, grace, and love.

Instant karma: Cop shoots himself while trying to kill non-aggressive dog

David Edwards reports for The Raw Story, April 17, 2014, that a sheriff’s deputy in Riverside County, California, accidentally shot himself in the leg while trying to kill a dog that he said was threatening his life.

copy who shot himself

According to a Riverside County sheriff’s spokesperson, the cop was serving an eviction notice at around 2 p.m. on Wednesday when a “large” dog tried to attack him, KCAL reported.

PreciousPrecious, the “large” “attacking” dog

“A dog came at the deputy in an aggressive manner,” Deputy Armando Munoz said, according to The Press-Enterprise. “The deputy, (attempting to defend himself) pulled his service weapon, shot one round, and injured himself in the leg. He’s OK. He has non life-threatening injuries.”

But video captured by a local television station later showed the dog to be much smaller than reported and peacefully playing with children.

When KNBC film crews arrived on the scene later on Wednesday, they found a medium-sized pit bull — named “Precious” — confined to a pen, and calmly playing with several children. The dog’s owner admitted that it had been barking when the officer arrived.

Deputy Munoz claimed that the dog’s “aggressive” behavior ended when it was startled by the gunfire.

Animal Services did not take the dog into custody because there was no evidence it or the owner had done anything wrong. Precious was not running loose in the streets. Nor did Precious “attack” the deputy; all she did was bark at the cop.

The Empty Tomb

It was very early on the first day of the week and still dark, when Mary of Magdala came to the tomb. She saw that the stone had been moved away from the tomb and came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved. “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb,” she said, “and we don’t know where they have put him.” So Peter set out with the other disciple to go to the tomb. They…saw the linen cloths lying on the ground…and…believed. Till this moment they had still not understood the scripture, that he must rise from the dead. -John 20:1-9

Here’s a reconstruction of what happened from the book The Truth About the Shroud of Turin (Regnery, 2010), pp. 189-191, by my friend Robert K. Wilcox. No matter how many times I read this, it never fails to move me to tears.

The tomb, a rocky chamber carved out of a hillside, a stone rolled against the door, is dark and silent. Lying on a slab is a long, rectangular cocoon, the hills and valleys of which are clearly the contours of a human body. The body of Jesus lies there, face up, a ribbon around the head and chin to keep the mouth closed, packed on all sides with bags of spices.

At some unknown moment in the dead of night, the air in the tomb becomes electric.

At first the vibrations are minute, the sort that could be detected by sensitive twentieth-century instruments; then they dramatically increase until they shake the ground and blow the boulder from the door.

A glow, faint at first, emanating from the shroud suddenly intensifies until rays of light shoot through the threads, star-filled golden rays filling the tomb and pouring out the door.

For thirty seconds — no more — the blinding, pulsating movement continues.

The source of the activity is the corpse, the body, somehow being revitalized, dematerialized, its mass being converted into energy, pure energy, which in the material world is radiant white light.

The body rises from the slab through the cloth, hovers for a moment in midair, then disappears.

The cocoon collapses. Darkness returns. Shouts of “Earthquake! Earthquake!” diminish as the guards run for their lives. And in the air, the distinct odor of scorched linen.

When dawn comes, the women in Jesus’ life draw tentatively toward the tomb, look in the opening, and see the shroud unopened, still wrapped, but definitely deflated. The body is gone. At sunrise the disciples come. John enters the tomb, puts his hand on the cloth, and presses it to the slab. Jesus is there no longer. The disciples and the women quickly gather up the burial garments — the chin band is still in the shroud — and the spice bags and leave before the Romans can return.

At another time, in another place, when they have a chance to gather their wits, they will discover the figure of their master imprinted on the inside of the shroud. The images would be faint, probably not as dark as the passage of time and exposure to air have made them; and the images would be negative ones, a phenomenon that would also become clearer with the passage of time. Regardless, they would view these images as holy — imprints of their precious Lord. The disciples would pay more attention to the images on the shroud if they weren’t already waiting, with the greatest anticipation, for Jesus himself, who, before his death, had promised to visit them after he rose from the dead.
