American-born children of immigrants proving fruitful recruiting ground for jihad in U.S.

By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Monday, June 13, 2016

While immigrants draw much of the attention, it’s their children who are proving to be the most fruitful recruiting ground for radical jihad in the U.S., accounting for at least half of the deadly attacks over the past decade. The latest instance of the second-generation terrorist syndrome played out in Orlando, Florida, over the weekend when Omar Mateen, son of immigrants from Afghanistan, went on a jihad-inspired rampage, killing 49 people and wounding 53 others in the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. Authorities said Mateen had flirted with other terrorist groups but declared his allegiance to the Islamic State on Sunday morning as he began his horrific spree. He follows in the footsteps of Syed Rizwan Farook, one of the San Bernardino, California, terrorists who was the son of Pakistanis; Nadir Soofi, one of two men who attacked a drawing competition in Garland, Texas, last year and whose father was from Pakistan; and then-Maj. Nidal Hassan, the child of Palestinian immigrants whose shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, in 2009 set off the modern round of deadly lone-wolf attacks. In other cases, attackers were immigrants brought to the U.S. as young children. They grew up in the U.S. but were besieged by etc. and the news story continues..

An ISIS militant murdered a police commander and his wife at their home near Paris before being shot dead by officers who rescued the couple's three-year-old boy unharmed. After killing the couple Larossi Abballa, 25, recorded a 12 minute monologue to camera while in the couple's house in Magnanville and posted the video on Facebook Live. In the video, Abballa says: 'We will come and find you the way I have found this policemen at his house.' He also hinted at an ISIS attack on the Euro 2016 football tournament, saying: ‘We're keeping another surprise for the Euros but I won’t say anything more.' And, chillingly, he also hinted that the son of his victims was also in danger, saying: 'I don't know what I'm going to do with the boy.' He continued: '(President) Hollande you are ruthless but we are also heartless…I was ruthless just now towards this policeman and his wife.’ Police later raided Abballa's home and found a hit list on his computer which contained six names. Prosecutor Francois Molins said they included 'rappers, journalists, police officers and public personalities'. During Abballa's video diatribe he expressed particular hatred for journalists Bernard de La Villardière, Audrey Pulvar, Mohamed Sifaoui and Lea Salame, political scientist Gilles Kepel and rapper Booba. Booba is of Senegalese Muslim origin and was, ironically, accused of anti-Semitism in 2014 for the lyrics of a song which appeared to praise Mohammed Merah, a lone wolf who killed seven people, including a rabbi and three Jewish children in Toulouse in 2012. Abballa called on Muslims to kill journalists and police officers and added: ‘Target their fear.’ He stabbed Jean-Baptiste Salvaing, 42, nine times in the stomach at his home in the Yvelines department, north west of Paris, shortly after 8.30pm on Monday. After a three-hour stand-off elite Raid commandos entered the building, where they killed Abballa. Inside the house, they found the lifeless body of Mr Salvaing's wife, Jessica Schneider, who was an administrator who worked for the police force in Mantes-la-Jolie. The only survivor was the couple's three-year-old son, who was 'extremely shocked but otherwise unharmed'. The couple's young son was 'in shock but unharmed,' a prosecutor added, saying he was receiving medical attention. Mr Molins said Abballa pledged his allegiance to ISIS three weeks ago and appeared to be following a recent order from ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi 'to kill miscreants at home with their families' during Ramadan. Three men - 'linked to' Abballa - were arrested on Tuesday morning. They were described as 'acquaintances' and are aged 27, 29 and 44. It also emerged today the knifeman was part of a recent investigation into a Syrian jihadist network. French security expert David Thomson said Abballa posted gruesome images of the murdered couple on the internet. A 12-minute video and 15 photographs appeared on Abballa's Facebook page, along with his justifications for what he had done. Abballa's Facebook profile, under the name Mohamed Ali, was suspended in the early hours of this morning. Mr Thomson told a Paris radio station that at one point Abballa could be seen sitting on the sofa with the child behind him. Abballa wrote: 'I still don't know what I'm going to do with him.' One of his most recent Facebook posts was a mock-up of the European Championship logo, which he claimed contained masonic and occult symbols. Abballa was born in Mantes-la-Jolie, a suburb close to the scene of the killings. He had criminal convictions for theft and violence dating back to 2011. Abballa earned a living as a restaurant delivery man and used the moniker Doctor Food. Mr Thomson said he frequently used social media to call for the murders of police, prison officers and journalists, often by name. Abballa had also been sentenced in 2013 for taking part in a jihadist organisation with links to Pakistan. He was sentenced to three years behind bars, six months of which were suspended for 'criminal association with the aim of preparing terrorist acts' following a trial with seven other defendants. Despite this, he only spent a few months in prison, and is thought to have maintained his links with a group sending jihadists to fight in Afghanistan. It has also been revealed Abballa had previously claimed allegiance to ISIS and sources say he did so again while talking to officers during the siege. The terror group's al-Amaq news agency said the attacker was an 'Islamic State fighter' and claimed responsibility for the killings. Witnesses told investigators the man may have shouted 'Allahu akbar' (God is greatest) as he stabbed the policeman repeatedly. President Francois Hollande held a top-level security meeting to discuss the 'appalling terrorist act' which took place as France was on high alert for the Euro 2016 football championships. He said: 'France is not the only country concerned as we have seen, again, in the United States, in Orlando.' Mr Salvaing was an assistant chief with the judicial police at nearby Les Mureaux. The French police have set up an online book of condolences for Mr Salvaing and Ms Schneider. The killing came a day after a gunman claiming to be acting in the name of ISIS shot dead 49 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, in the worst mass shooting in US history. Yves Lefebvre of police union Unite SGP Police-FO said: 'Today every police officer is a target.' He said terrorists were getting more 'professional' and were able to track down police officers to their homes. The bloodshed also comes as France hosts the Euro 2016 football tournament under tight security, still reeling from jihadist attacks in Paris last November that left 130 people dead. Loud detonations were heard at the scene as RAID officers moved in following failed negotiations with the attacker. Officers found the woman's body when they stormed the building, and the attacker was killed during the assault. Mr Molins said inside the house police found three mobile phones and three knives, including one which was covered in blood. Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve expressed his 'infinite sadness' at the death of the police commander and his partner, who had worked for his ministry. 'The attacker was neutralised by RAID forces, who showed great composure and great professionalism and who saved the couple's little boy,' Cazeneuve said in a statement. 'The inquiry opened by the justice authorities will establish the precise circumstances of this tragedy.' Police sources said earlier in the evening that the attacker had taken the policeman's partner, who worked as a police secretary, and son hostage after stabbing the officer to death as he returned home around 9pm. All light will be shed on the circumstances of this terrible tragedy President Francois Hollande Residents were evacuated from the neighbourhood as police moved in. RAID officers 'arrived rapidly on the scene. Negotiations were launched and an assault plan was put in place,' said Brandet. But the negotiations were 'unsuccessful' and authorities decided to launch an assault around midnight, he added. A helicopter was on the ground a few hundred metres away from the scene of the attack, while several fire trucks and ambulances were seen leaving the security perimeter. President Hollande said in a statement that he 'strongly condemned this odious act'. 'A police commander and his partner, a civil servant at the interior ministry, were shamefully murdered this evening,' Hollande said. 'All light will be shed on the circumstances of this terrible tragedy,' he added.

Klyuchevskoy erupts sending ash up to 6 km, Russia

Posted by TW on June 14, 2016 in categories Featured articles, Volcanoes

Russia's Klyuchevskoy volcano erupted late June 13, 2016, sending a column of smoke and ash high into the sky. At 22:09 UTC, a plume of ash reached an altitude of 5 - 6 km (16 400 - 19 680 feet) above sea level. At of 21:29 UTC, ash plume extended 47 km (29 miles) to the west, KVERT reported. Aviation Color Code remains on Orange since April 24, 2016. The explosive eruption of the volcano continues and ash explosions up to 6 to 8 km (19 700 to 26 240 feet) a.s.l. could occur at any time, KVERT said. Ongoing activity could affect international and low-flying aircraft. Klyuchevskoy has been almost continuously active over the past 50 years. This latest phase of strong strombolian activity started at 11:25 UTC on April 3, 2016, when a bright incandescence was observed at the summit crater. Around 13:40 UTC on April 23, strong explosions at the volcano sent ash up to 9 km (29 527 feet) above sea level. Geological summary Klyuchevskoy (also spelled Kliuchevskoi) is Kamchatka's highest and most active volcano. Since its origin about 6000 years ago, the beautifully symmetrical, 4835-m-high basaltic stratovolcano has produced frequent moderate-volume explosive and effusive eruptions without major periods of inactivity. It rises above a saddle NE of sharp-peaked Kamen volcano and lies SE of the broad Ushkovsky massif. More than 100 flank eruptions have occurred during the past roughly 3000 years, with most lateral craters and cones occurring along radial fissures between the unconfined NE-to-SE flanks of the conical volcano between 500 m and 3600 m elevation. The morphology of the 700-m-wide summit crater has been frequently modified by historical eruptions, which have been recorded since the late-17th century. Historical eruptions have originated primarily from the summit crater, but have also included numerous major explosive and effusive eruptions from flank craters.

It is with a heavy heart that break this tragic news of another doctor death. This time it is a prominent holistic doctor who practiced in Long Island, New York. His website video actually calls him a “leading physician of the world” and his patients are posting on my Facebook page (and sending emails) that they don’t believe it was suicide. Dr Alex Shvartsman, was a well known holistic dentist AND an ND (a Naturopathic Doctor). He was found dead this past weekend at his home and allegedly took his own life. It’s not unusual for many in this sad, unintended series to have multiple degrees as a doctor. This well loved doctor was a dentist and an ND, while others were MDs and PhDs or DCs with PhDs, and so on. Dr Schvartsman’s patients who have written are still in disbelief. His staff also sounded as if they were still in shock, but I didn’t ask them to elaborate on the matter. Our heart goes out to his friends and family. Multiple biographies list him as having a wife and young child (his patients confirm he had been married with a son). We will withhold those names from this article. Besides being an ND, Dr Schvartsman practiced mercury and drill free dentistry (we can’t even find a dentist in Florida who does drill free). We’ll update you as more details unfold, but suggest you read the recap and full timeline on all forty plus deaths in the Unintended Holistic Doctor Series. Among the dead is one other holistic dentist (we don’t believe he was an ND though) who was found dead on the side of the road; he was in his early 40s and in amazing shape. His close friend/patient/ fraternity brother reports he ate extremely healthfully and it just didn’t add up. Of course countless other deaths don’t add up either and there are multiple families of these prominent holistic doctors (several others in New York, as well) who have either questioned the death of their loved ones publicly, hired private investigators (with more hiring firms every month), or questioned the deaths privately- and we respect their privacy. Again, I will keep you updated and wish for all holistic doctors (including my better half of 7 years) to stay safe. You can sign up for my newsletter to keep updated on these stories. You can read the doctor’s bio and see his website here.

Russia Is Reportedly Set To Release Clinton's Intercepted Emails

Jun 13, 2016, 2:37 PM

Reliable intelligence sources in the West have indicated that warnings had been received that the Russian Government could in the near future release the text of email messages intercepted from U.S. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server from the time she was U.S. Secretary of State. The release would, the messaging indicated, prove that Secretary Clinton had, in fact, laid open U.S. secrets to foreign interception by putting highly-classified Government reports onto a private server in violation of U.S. law, and that, as suspected, the server had been targeted and hacked by foreign intelligence services. The reports indicated that the decision as to whether to reveal the intercepts would be made by Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin, and it was possible that the release would, if made, be through a third party, such as Wikileaks. The apparent message from Moscow, through the intelligence community, seemed to indicate frustration with the pace of the official U.S. Department of Justice investigation into the so-called server scandal, which seemed to offer prima facie evidence that U.S. law had been violated by Mrs Clinton’s decision to use a private server through which to conduct official and often highly-secret communications during her time as Secretary of State. U.S. sources indicated that the extensive Deptartment of Justice probe was more focused on the possibility that the private server was used to protect messaging in which Secretary Clinton allegedly discussed quid pro quo transactions with private donors to the Clinton Foundation in exchange for influence on U.S. policy. The Russian possession of the intercepts, however, was designed also to show that, apart from violating U.S. law in the fundamental handling of classified documents (which Sec. Clinton had alleged was no worse than the mishandling of a few documents by CIA Director David Petraeus or Clinton’s National Security Advisor Sandy Berger), the traffic included highly-classified materials which had their classification headers stripped. Russian (and other) sources had indicated frustration with the pace of the Justice Dept. probe, and its avoidance of the national security aspects of intelligence handling. This meant that the topic would be suppressed by the U.S. Barack Obama Administration so that it would not be a factor in the current U.S. Presidential election campaign, in which President Obama had endorsed Mrs Clinton. Moscow’s discreet messaging about a possible leak of the traffic, in time to impact the U.S. elections, was designed to pressure faster U.S. legal action on the matter, but was largely due to Russian concerns about possible U.S. strategic policy in the event of a Hillary Clinton presidency. Apart from the breach of U.S. Federal law in the handling of classified material, the Clinton private server was, according to GIS/Defense & Foreign Affairs analysts, always likely to have been a primary target for foreign cyber warfare interception operations, particularly those of the People’s Republic of China (PRC), Russia, and North Korea (DPRK), but probably also by others, including Iran.

Thousands of red tuna crabs wash up on Mission Beach, San Diego

By Strange Sounds - Jun 13, 2016

Thousands of red tuna crabs washed ashore on June 7, 2016 in Mission Beach, San Diego, California. Visitors in the area around the South Shores Park Boat Launch found beaches covered with the crabs. Red tuna crasbs are typically found off the coast of Baja California, however, El Nino weather patterns have pushed them north and onto Southern Californian beaches. Last month, millions of crabs also washed ashore in Ensenada, Mexico, on Del Monte Beach in Monterey, California and Imperial Beach.

Watchman Warning: Soft Target

By Hal Lindsey

Security analysts see all gatherings of people as potential terrorist targets. Generally, they divide them into two categories“hard targets” and “soft targets.” Hard targets are well guarded and soft targets have little or no defense. In light of the Orlando terror attack, we might expect government officials to look for ways to turn more soft targets into hard ones. But just the opposite is happening. Almost immediately following the attack, the politics of gun control began to drive much of the discussion. Gun control advocates want to diminish our ability to defend ourselves. They want to turn us — along with our places of work, of worship, and our homes — into soft targets. Under present law, a terrorist would be crazy to use guns in an assault on a conservative, evangelical church in Texas. That’s because a significant number of conservative evangelicals have chosen to take advantage of that state’s right to carry laws. Even in a small Texas church, there’s a good chance someone will be packing heat. It would be almost impossible for one terrorist to shoot over a hundred people, killing almost half — if some of those people were shooting back. Someone might argue that Jesus was against violence, but a closer look at scripture tells a more nuanced story. In Luke 9, Jesus sent some of His disciples on a short missionary journey. He “sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God, and to perform healing. And He said to them, ‘Take nothing for your journey, neither a staff, nor a bag, nor bread, nor money; and do not even have two tunics apiece.’” (Luke 9:2-3 NASB) He did this to show them, and all who would follow, that God is our Source — not money or reserves of food. He provides for our needs. The instructions Jesus gave illustrated that even when He would no longer be physically present, His followers would never be “on their own.” God always watches over us. In Luke 22, not long before His crucifixion, Jesus reminded His disciples of that experience. He wanted them to draw on that memory so that they would always see God as their Provider. But as they were about to set out on missionary journeys that would transform the world, He told them to take some things with them, including money. That fits with what they had seen Him do. During the three years of Jesus’ ministry, the group had a treasurer and a moneybag. That would be the normal way of doing things. “He said to them, ‘When I sent you out without purse and bag and sandals, you did not lack anything, did you?’ And they said, ‘No, nothing.’ And He said to them, ‘But now, let him who has a purse take it along, likewise also a bag, and let him who has no sword sell his robe and buy one.’” (Luke 22:35-36 NASB) Jesus did not advocate violence, but He told them to take a sword on their journeys. He said if they didn’t have a sword, they should sell something as essential as a robe in order to buy one. Self-defense is implicit in this instruction. There are no limits on God’s ability. He can just do things for us. After Philip baptized the Ethiopian eunuch in Acts 8, it says, “the Spirit of the Lord snatched Philip away; and the eunuch saw him no more, but went on his way rejoicing. But Philip found himself at Azotus.” (Acts 8:39-40 NASB That was a transportation miracle. But in every other case we know of, the disciples of Jesus went place to place in a very natural, human way. They walked. God has the ability to snatch us up and take us where He wants, but His usual method is to let us do the things we can. God uses even our most basic abilities, like walking. He wants us to participate where we can —including in our own protection. A new editorial in Rolling Stone magazine argues that we should not be allowed that right. On June 13th, they ran an editorial calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment. Apparently the United Nations agrees. U.N. human rights commissioner Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein asked, “How many more mass killings of school-children, of co-workers, of African-American churchgoers, how many more individual shootings of talented musicians like Christina Grimmie, or politicians like Gabrielle Giffords, will it take before the United States adopts robust gun regulation?” But here’s the problem. If we must depend only on police and other government agencies to defend us, then almost everything and everyone will be a soft target. NFL football games won’t be, but your kid’s soccer game will. Hollywood studios will remain hard targets, but the local multiplex will be a soft target — as will your local grocery store, school, church, and park. But if people who pass a certain level of screening and testing are allowed the means to defend themselves, they will also defend the people around them — hardening targets everywhere. In all of this, we have to remember that God remains the ultimate defense. We may water the garden, but only God can make vegetables grow. It’s the same with defense. Psalms 33 says, “The king is not saved by a mighty army; A warrior is not delivered by great strength. A horse is a false hope for victory; Nor does it deliver anyone by its great strength. Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, On those who hope for His lovingkindness, To deliver their soul from death, And to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield.” (Psalms 33:16-20 NASB) While those words give me comfort as an individual, they give me grave concern for my country. The United States of America has the strongest, most powerful military in the history of the world by far. But that alone is not enough. If we as a nation do not turn to God for deliverance, the United States itself will soon become a “soft target.”

The chattering classes are disturbed that Trump questioned Obama’s loyalties in the fight against jihad, but does he have a point?

June 16, 2016, 12:00 pm

It’s instructive, but certainly not surprising, that in the wake of the deadliest terror attack on American soil since 9/11 President Obama’s reaction was to reach for gun control as a solution. Put another way, in the face of evidence that the global, ISIS-inspired jihad has penetrated the federal government’s security apparatus and demonstrated the FBI, CIA, and local law enforcement cannot stop “known wolf” jihadists from committing mass murder in the name of Allah, this president’s reaction was to act to disarm the public to the threat. That there will be no passage of new gun control legislation and the president is well aware of this fact didn’t appear to dissuade him at all. That similarly, to parrot previous babblings about gun control in the face of what clearly was a jihadist attack serves almost exclusively to divide the country at a time common sense and propriety demands it be brought together certainly didn’t faze him. Following Obama’s reactions, the presumptive Republican nominee for president Donald Trump dropped a rhetorical bomb on the incumbent. Appearing via phone on Fox and Friends Monday morning, he said, “[Obama] doesn’t get it, or he gets it better than anybody understands. It’s one or the other. And either one is unacceptable.” Which is a pointed way of phrasing the question lots of people have been troubled by; namely, is the president’s complete failure to keep the country safe from jihadist terrorists and seeming uninterest in doing so rooted in incompetence — or something else? We’ll leave aside the question whether it’s politically smart or befitting a presidential candidate to take so pronounced a swing, and stick to the obvious — Trump got under Obama’s skin. The president delivered a five-minute vituperative rant on live TV, accusing the Republican candidate of “yappin’” and said it was “dangerous” for Trump to exhibit “sloppiness” and “loose talk” such as his proposal to have a hiatus on Muslim entry into the United States and asking “Do Republican officials actually agree with this?” Trump then tweeted a link to a Breitbart article which made the claim that Obama, and his first-term Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who is the Donald’s opponent in November, had fueled the development of ISIS by setting up a training program for Syrian rebels opposed to its dictator Bashar Assad. A CBS poll showed that by a two-to-one ratio (51-25), the public didn’t approve of Trump’s approach, but clearly Trump is the one driving the discussion and, to the extent any of this can be enjoyable, he’s the one having more fun with the narrative. But the question is whether he’s right. And as much as others on the Republican side might have strokes about what he’s saying, or call it counterproductive to ask as to Obama’s loyalties, Trump will at least have little trouble finding ammunition for his arguments. After all, why was a 25-year old Syrian immigrant who has said 9/11 changed the world for good recently appointed to Obama’s Homeland Security Advisory Council’s (HSAC) Subcommittee on Countering Violent Extremism? That program, by the way, is fraught with a level of wrong-headedness it would be hard to imagine coming from a president not named Obama. Essentially, at its heart is the concept that enlisting Muslim sharia advocates on our side to do rhetorical battle with ISIS will keep us safe. Daniel Greenfield accurately characterizes this stupidity: CVE tells us that the best way to fight violent extremists is with “non violent extremist” Salafi clergy who have the most influence on them. We’re supposed to fight the ISIS Caliphate with supporters of another kind of Caliphate. What it really comes down to is paying Muslims to argue with other Muslims on social media. And hope that the Muslims we’re paying to do the arguing are the good kind of extremists, like the Muslim Brotherhood, and not the bad kind of extremists, like ISIS. Even though they’re both vicious killers. Essentially, as Greenfield notes, Obama has outsourced our Muslim outreach to CAIR and the Saudis. Is it so insane to wonder whether the leader of this administration is more than just a bumbling idiot? Why has the Obama administration purged subject-matter experts like Phil Haney from government agencies tasked with counterterrorism for the sin of accurately describing the cultural and religious underpinnings of the jihadist movement and investigating potential jihadists accordingly? The Iran deal? The overthrow of the Qaddafi regime in Libya after it had tried to align itself with the U.S. and cooperated with us on fighting Al Qaeda? Backing the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt? Particularly given the perceived level of influence one of its operatives had as Clinton’s right-hand woman in the State Department. Refusing to aid Israel in its attempts to defend itself against jihadists? Everything about Jeh Johnson? We already know the results of this mishmash of counterintuitive policy ideas. America is less safe from jihadist terrorism now than it has ever been, America has fewer committed allies in the fight against jihad than ever, the American people have less confidence in the government’s ability to keep the peace (one of the most interesting outcomes of Orlando is the sudden uptick in firearms interest in the gay community), and the enemy is more emboldened than ever. Whether politically it’s a good idea to bring all of this to a head or not, is it really so wrong to ask whether there is a method behind eight years of policy drift on so crucially important an issue?

The Real Reason Satan Is Raging Against Christians Right Now

8:00AM EDT 6/15/2016 Michael Youssef

In my recent book, End Times and the Secret of the Mahdi: Unlocking the Mystery of Revelation and the Antichrist, I offer an action plan for living confidently in today's turbulent times. During the next several posts, I will draw from this book to examine current events in light of end-times prophecies. Today's post follows part one of the book The Revelation of Jesus Christ. God has used the book of Revelation as the capstone of the entire Bible. It reveals the ultimate fulfillment of prophecies going back to the beginning of Genesis. And through that, we can discover how to apply those insights to our lives today. Atheist philosophers tell us that human life is meaningless. But Revelation assures us that God cares greatly about our individual lives—and about the future of planet Earth. Although things seem to be spinning out of control, God has a triumphant conclusion planned. But are we ready? Are we ready today for that conclusion? Though Jesus could return at any time, the signs seem to be aligning for His return sooner rather than later. Every day, there is more terrible news from the Middle East — the very region where history began and where it will all end. Today, the nation of Israel, the holy land, seems all but isolated, including from its old ally, the United States. Today, more Christians are martyred than ever before. Today, the rapid and ruthless rise of ISIS has resulted in an actual state that controls large regions of Iraq and Syria, plus parts of Nigeria, Libya and Southeast Asia. The ISIS reign of terror crosses national borders, enforcing its rule with beheadings and mass slaughter. But although it is brutal, ISIS provides stability, and many who live under ISIS control welcome the stability of oppression. I'm not saying that ISIS is the precursor to the Antichrist. But as we look at the horror coming out of the Middle East, it is impossible not to compare those scenes with the Antichrist's reign of terror, as described in Daniel, Revelation and other prophetic passages of Scripture. Daniel tells us that during the time of the Antichrist "there will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then" (Dan. 12:1). But the signs go far beyond Middle East conflict and much closer to home. Today, the United States federal debt stands at $18.6 trillion, 74 percent of the GDP. And entitlement spending will soon explode the debt sky-high. Those who pay attention to the global debt crisis can easily envision the global economic collapse described in Revelation 18. Also today, we see U.S. government officials trampling our First Amendment rights in ways unthinkable a few years ago. Today, religious liberty is endangered as it takes a backseat to political correctness. Today, fundamental truths about gender and sexual behavior are cast aside by secular and religious authorities alike. Paul said in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 that in the church there would be a great "falling away" from the faith before the Day of the Lord. We already see a great "falling away" in the evangelical church. Many churches that once preached the pure gospel of Jesus Christ have defected. Why is all this happening now? The Bible doesn't tell us, but here's my opinion: I believe Satan is intensifying his actions against Christians because he senses that time is growing short. He is desperate to do as much damage as he can, to cause as much suffering as he can, to take as many souls with him as he can. Although the headlines are filled with evidence that society is on a collision course with the book of Revelation, don't be alarmed. God did not give us the book of Revelation to frighten us, or certainly to let us predict the future. God alone knows the future. But He did give us the book of Revelation to motivate and encourage us. Between the bookends of Genesis and Revelation, the Bible spans the history of the human race. Genesis tells the story of humanity's creation and fall. Revelation describes the redemption and eternal destiny of all believers. The book of Revelation is indispensable. If we did not have Revelation, we would have an incomplete picture of Jesus Christ and the Christian faith. The Old Testament presents a picture of Jesus, the promised Messiah. The Gospels present a picture of Jesus, the Teacher, Leader, Servant, the Crucified and Risen One. The Book of Acts gives us Jesus as the Ascended One. In the epistles, we see Jesus as Savior and Lord. But only in Revelation do we see Jesus fully glorified, King of kings, Lord of lords and Judge of all. In Revelation 1:8, the Lord says, "I am the Alpha and the Omega, who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty." But the Alpha-Omega statement also appears at the end of Revelation. In Revelation 22:13, the Lord says, "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End." Jesus is saying: "I was here at the beginning, I am here now, and I will be here at the end. I was here at Creation, and I will be here when heaven and Earth are made new." Jesus is the King of Glory, worthy of honor and praise—the Lord of the beginning and the end. John, who was probably closest to Jesus of the Twelve, looked at the glorified Jesus and didn't say, "I saw my good friend Jesus." He said, "I saw someone like a Son of Man." Then he proceeded to describe the Lord's appearance. The Lord was "clothed with a garment down to the feet and with a golden sash wrapped around the chest. The hair on His head was white like wool, as white as snow. His eyes were like a flame of fire. His feet were like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters. He had in His right hand seven stars, and out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword. His appearance was like the sun shining brightly" (Rev. 1:13b-16). The sight of the glorified Jesus was so awesome that John "fell at his feet as though dead." Certainly we must long for the day when we will see Jesus fully magnified and ruling over all. But as readers of Revelation know, there will be a Great Tribulation too. But when will that happen? And will the Lord take His church out of the world before the Great Tribulation begins? Only God knows the answers. But let's not get sidetracked by minor details, because then we might miss the big picture. The "big picture" themes of the book of Revelation are: First, all who welcome Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior will be welcomed into heaven when He returns. Second, Jesus will return as He promised. Third, Jesus will sit in righteous judgment over all who have refused to accept Him as Lord and Savior during their earthly lives. Fourth, when Jesus appears, all who love Him will be with Him forever. Christians of good will may debate the details of this prophecy, but those four principles are beyond debate. So we must be ready. As Jesus tells us: Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him (Matt. 24:42-44). If we study the book of Revelation, it will not merely increase our knowledge. It will change our lives. Because of its life-changing truths, you and I can live each day with eternity in our hearts. Are we ready for the Lord's return?

It's not guns, it's Islam

Thursday, June 16, 2016 Bryan Fischer - Guest Columnis

The Orlando massacre reveals one of the most profound differences between Islam and Christianity: Christianity wants homosexuals helped ... Islam wants them dead.

Bryan Fischer The Orlando massacre reveals one of the most profound differences between Islam and Christianity: Christianity wants homosexuals helped ... Islam wants them dead. President Obama, as I predicted, did not mention the phrase "Islamic terrorism" once in his brief remarks in the wake of the Muslim massacre at the homosexual nightclub in Orlando. And just as predictably, he blamed guns, even though there are 1.4 million Florida gun owners who did not commit mass murder over the weekend. If we step back, take a deep breath, and look at things objectively, there is no other conclusion we can draw other than that Islam is the problem. Islam has been the problem for Christian and Western civilization since 632 A.D., and there is no sign that the problem is getting better instead of worse. The issue is the very nature of the religion of Muhammad. The problem is not "radical Islam." The problem is Islam itself. The abiding command of Allah, found in Sura 9:5, is "Slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them." Muslims have been obeying this command religiously since the 7th century, and Omar Mateen was simply the latest in a long line of the devout to kill infidels in the name of their god. Islam has been the Ebola virus of culture since Satan's revelation to Muhammad in the cave. There is no known antidote other than the gospel of Jesus Christ. If a Muslim will not take the cure, then he remains a carrier of the virus, a virus which can remain dormant in most Muslims but then can spring to life almost without warning. When the Ebola epidemic erupted, sound immigration policy in the West blocked immigration from Ebola-ravaged countries. We knew we were blocking immigration to many who were not carriers and represented no threat to public health. But we had no way to identify the carriers from the non-carriers before it was too late. Rational public policy required us to be careful with them all. A rational, objective, logical, PC-free evaluation of Islam should lead us in the same direction. We can readily stipulate that most Muslims do not represent a jihadist threat to innocent Americans. But we simply have no way of distinguishing the Muslims who do not represent a lethal threat from the ones who do. Logic dictates that we must be careful with them all. Some voices are demanding we just stop allowing dangerous Muslims into the U.S., which of course is advice with which we all agree. But they can't tell us how to spot them. There is no Geiger-counter type wand TSA can wave over immigrants from Muslim majority countries which will alert us to the bad guys. Syrian refugees, according to the FBI itself, are impossible to vet, and President Obama is importing 100 of them every single day. Now of course Omar Mateen did not immigrate. But his parents did, from Afghanistan, a country in which 99% of immigrants believe in sharia law. Sharia law leads directly to homosexuals being thrown off eight-story buildings or gunned down in cold blood at nightspots. Omar himself, according to a classmate, celebrated the 9/11 attacks and attended a mosque which featured a guest imam in 2013 who quite explicitly called for the death of homosexuals in the name of Allah and in the name of compassion. In other words, Omar was a carrier. In order to protect our culture from the toxin of fundamentalist Islam and other Omar Mateens, many are rightly calling for severe restrictions on Muslim immigration, or the elimination of Muslim immigration altogether (my view). The Constitution gives to Congress unilateral authority to set parameters for immigration. Immigration to the United States is not a right; it is a privilege, which can be restricted in any way that is necessary to protect our safety and security. We do not need to bring Muslim refugees to the United States. There are 57 Muslim nations which follow "the religion of peace." This means, according to the left, there should be dozens of havens of Muslim tranquility, peace, and serenity around the globe where Muslims fleeing war should be able to find a home. Let's use the resources of America to help them find one of those Muslim havens. That way, we can both demonstrate compassion and protect America at the same time. The PC crowd faces a real dilemma, as its second most-favored group (Muslims) has now been graphically revealed to represent a lethal threat to its top most-favored group, homosexuals. (This incident, by the way, reveals one of the most profound differences between Islam and Christianity. Christianity wants homosexuals helped, Islam wants them dead.) Now the PC crowd certainly won't call for a suspension of Islamic immigration to protect Western civilization, America, or Christianity. But perhaps they can be persuaded to suspend Islamic immigration to protect homosexuals. Bottom line: Islam is the problem, immigration restriction is the cure. Let's hope we find the will to implement the cure before it's too late.

Was Voice Contestant Christina Grimmie Killed Because of Her Christian Faith?

By Leonardo Blair , Christian Post Reporter June 14, 2016|1:15 pm

Christina Grimmie poses at a media event for the television show "The Voice" in Universal City, California, April 15, 2014. image: http://graphic.christianpost.com/images/homepage11/enlarge4.png 

A new report circulating online says murdered singer and popular contestant on NBC's "The Voice," Christina Grimmie, might have been killed because of her Christian faith. According to the Santa Monica Observer, Orlando Police are investigating Grimmie's death as a hate crime after examining cell phone and computer records of her killer, Kevin James Loibl, 27. Loibl shot Grimmie on Friday night as she signed autographs after a concert in Orlando, Florida. The Observer did not specify the exact source of the information from the Orlando Police Department. In an email response to The Christian Post on Tuesday regarding the investigation into Grimmie's death, police department spokesperson Wanda Miglio said: "I have received no information about that rumor." On Tuesday morning, Orlando Police indicated in a tweet that they were still working on the case despite the tragedy at the popular gay nightclub Pulse that left 49 dead and more than 50 others injured. "Even w/the events in last few days, our detectives are still working #ChristinaGrimmie case," the tweet said.

Plan B Is Going Into Effect to Stop Trump Because the Elite Cannot Hide Clinton’s Criminality From the Masses

Dave Hodges

Christmas, my birthday and my wedding anniversary arrived on the same day. Information is pouring in about the abject and heinous criminality of Hillary Clinton faster than it can be fully reported. For 15 months, I have known that the Clinton Foundation had participatory ties to state sponsored terrorism, alliances with known enemies of the United States and it breaks every campaign finance law on the books. The Clinton Foundation and Uranium One Last year, I was alerted by an anonymous deep cover source that the New York Times was about to publish an article which implicated the Clinton Foundation for selling uranium to the Russian government in exchange for (1) a direct cash payment made by the Russian government to the Clinton Foundation in exchange for the raw nuclear material; and, (2) a direct payment to Bill Clinton for a speeches made in Moscow. Two weeks ago, I was instructed by my source as they thought it would help to create a headline that linked Clinton to the CIA/KGB which I did. I was told that this would help to potentially trigger complementary releases of information to what I had previously written about the Clinton Foundation. These new leaks which confirm what I have been saying since 2015 have begun to occur. After reading this article, most will have little difficulty linking the criminal foundation to espionage and treason. These links are occurring quietly and being shared among confidants. However, large chunks of information, supporting this notion are now appearing in public with large parts of the jigsaw puzzle on display. Hillary Clinton Bows to the Trump Challenge Hillary Clinton is coming under fire for a tweet last year in which she claimed Muslims have “nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.” Considering the official narrative for 9/11 this is statement supportive of extreme Muslim terrorism on its face. However, in light of the Trump challenge to acknowledge extreme Muslim terrorism by Donald Trump following the Orlando massacre, Clinton has been forced to acknowledge the threat of “radical Islamism.” “I have clearly said we have terrorist enemies who use Islam to justify slaughtering innocent people,” Clinton said on NBC’s “Today” show this past Monday. The reason for the previous Clinton denial of terrorism being connected to radical applications of Islam will be clear in the next several paragraphs. Stunning Revelation by Former DHS Security Agent Retired Department of Homeland Security (DHS) security agent, Philip Haney, is reporting that the mosque that Omar Mateen attended several times every week is the exact same mosque protected by Hillary Clinton’s State Department Muslim protection policy after the Islamic terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California which was carried out by Syed Farook. Haney previously made the case that the mosque was an object of deep concern regarding radical terrorism. However, Haney’s work drew drew concern and criticism from Clinton’s State Department and the DHS’s Civil Rights and Liberties Office because “they believed it unfairly singled out Muslims”. Subsequently, Haney’s report was heavily edited and tossed onto the scrap heap of history. No action was taken to shut down the mosque as it should have been. From Political Insider:“As a member of one of the National Targeting Center’s advanced units, Haney helped develop a case in 2011 on a worldwide Islamic movement known as Tablighi Jamaat, as he recounts in his new book “See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad.” Within a few months, the case drew the “concern” of the State Department and the DHS’s Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Office because the Obama administration believed it unfairly singled out Muslims. The intelligence, however, had been used to connect members of the movement to several terrorist organizations and financing at the highest levels, including for Hamas and al-Qaida.” It is widely known that Mateen was the target of three separate FBI investigations. What has been learned and just released from Political Insider reveals the reason for the third investigation. Mateen was investigated for a thrid time because of his association with a fellow member of the Fort Pierce Mosque, a “22-year-old Moner Mohammad Abusalha, blew himself up in an attack in Syria in 2014 with an explosives-laden truck. The association of the Fort Pierce mosque to terrorism was no undeniable. Then why did the third investigation suddenly end with no action taken? WND wrote that “Haney reports that Obama’s FBI had Mateen on their radar at least twice, but both times the investigation was shut down. This means Hillary Clinton’s State Department is directly responsible for not flagging Mateen and getting Islamic terrorists off the streets. This is outrageous, and it should disqualify Hillary Clinton from being President of the Untied States”. The failure of the FBI to act up on Mateen can only be explained by the Clinton policy put into place to block all investigations in radical Muslim terrorism which Haney witnessed in person. More evidence, which comes from Fox, which supports the fact that enough evidence is known that Mateen’s ex-wife knew of his Orlando plans and she may have have even transported him to the site of the massacre. With the NSA and the Patriot Acts in tow, how did the FBI now know what Mateen was up to? They had to have known. It was very likely that both AG Loretta Lynch and the Clinton policy at the State Department of not investigating Muslims became the roadblocks to any investigation. Martial Law Is Locked and Cocked My colleague and friend, Paul Martin, of Revolution Radio.org, has proven through the years to have quality sources and one of his best sources has made a revelation to Paul that is very disturbing. As the subtitle indicates, Paul’s source has said that martial law is “locked and cocked”. And once martial law is instituted , he has been told that where you are when martial law is rolled out, is where you will stay. Make your travel plans accordingly. Also, martial law will not be called martial law, it will officially be referred to as continuity of government. What Could Bring About Martial Law? The need for the criminal elite to roll out martial law is predicated on their need to institute Plan B. Plan A was to have Hillary march into the White House and promptly sell this country down the proverbial river. However, so many people are learning about the totality of Clinton’s criminality, she will not be able to get elect by November, even with the help of massive voter fraud. Subsequently, the need for Plan B is quickly arriving. And what exactly is Plan B? As I have stated in previous articles, I learned by accident about a huge George Soros presence at the Republican Convention through the implantation of such groups as moveon.org and black live matter. Along these lines look at what is surfacing below. Conclusion Plan B is apparently going into effect. Hillary Clinton has too much to defend to get elected. By November, her rap sheet would be known to all, despite the MSM complicity to hide this information. Plan B puts America under martial law and Obama stays in Office. How much of this do I believe? I am ending all vacations this summer before the beginning of the Republican Convention.

Trump Unleashes 'Political Flamethrower' Upon Hillary Whose Campaign Is Being Financed By Terrorists! With 'Terrorist Enabling' Clinton Still Running For The Highest Office In The Land And Not In Prison, America Is 'Ripe For Revolution'

June 15, 2016 By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

On Tuesday, Susan Duclos told us in a story on ANP that there are over 3,186 mosques and Islamic schools in the US and 75% of them are part of a 'jihad network' that has been made 'off limits' to US intelligence agencies and the FBI by both Hillary Clinton's State Department as well as the Obama administration. Susan warned us that 'Americans are in the bullseye' and most are totally clueless to the dangers that we face from the 'religion' of Islam. (We use the term 'religion' loosely in describing Islam...Islam is NOT A RELIGION...it is clearly a totalitarian political system.) Donald Trump has, thankfully, vowed to end Americans ignorance. Will he have the chance to do so before it's too late? Why is his opponent in the race not only enabling terrorism and the rise of ISIS but running a campaign that is being funded by 9/11 terrorists as excerpted below from this story from Zero Hedge and heard in the 2nd video below from Infowars? As we also hear from Gary Franchi and the Next News Network in the 1st video below, Trump has just unleashed a political flamethrower upon Hillary following Orlando. As a reminder, It is illegal in the United States for foreign countries to try to influence the outcome of elections by funding candidates. That appears not to have stopped the Saudis, however. Saudi Arabia always has sponsored both Republican and Democratic Party of America and in America current election also provide with full enthusiasm 20 percent of the cost of Hillary Clinton’s election even though some events in the country don’t have a positive look to support the king of a woman (sic) for presidency,” the report quoted Prince Mohammed as having said. According to the US Federal Election commission, over the past two years Clinton has raised a little more than $211.8 million. 20% of this sum is $42.4 million. The report was published (and then mysteriously deleted) on the eve of Prince Mohammed making an official visit to the United States. The Saudi Press Agency reported on Monday that the senior royal was due to fly to Washington where he will meet officials to discuss US-Saudi ties. As we also reported earlier today, the head of the FBI James Comey had recently warned that finding such murderers as Omar Mateen was like 'finding a needle in a nationwide haystack' though we strongly remind them that starting at mosques nationwide would be a very good starting point. The FBI certainly has no room what-so-ever to be 'politically correct' when American lives are on the line as they are now. How many more 'Orlando's' are in the works by those who want to slaughter us and are no longer being surveilled due to Clinton and Obama's 'political correctness'? This story, however, isn't to criticize our FBI nor intelligence agencies or law enforcement agencies but to go after those who have effectively 'shut down' our eyes and ears in the biggest breeding ground for terrorists across America; the mosques and Islamic schools nationwide that are harboring terrorists and preaching terror to their followers. For those who still believe that Islam is not the problem, we have to remind you of these indisputable facts.: Why would Hillary Clinton and Obama effectively open the door for ISIS to slaughter Americans? Why is our own president seemingly more angry at Donald Trump for pointing out facts than at the terrorist who shot up Orlando? More and more proof is emerging that Obama and Clinton are enabling the terrorists here to move around freely in America, and we have to point out here, Trump is absolutely correct! The mere fact that Hitlery's State Department nixed an investigation into the mosque of the Orlando coward and the DHS has ordered agents to scrub records of Muslims here in America with terror ties should be enough to make sure Hillary and other members of this administration are brought up on accessory to murder charges yet Hitlery still runs for the highest office of the land. If that in itself doesn't show how far America has fallen into pure evil, maybe nothing does. Maybe America really is 'ripe for revolution' in 2016 with war criminal and murderer Hillary Clinton attempting to hold on to power for the globalists who've been working dilligently for years to slay America. If all hell breaks loose this summer because of anger at the corrupted political system, don't say we didn't warn you of the building anger. So did former President John F. Kennedy who warned back on March 13, 1962: "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable." However, those on the left who feel they have no choice but to revolt violently against a broken and corrupt political system exemplified by the fact that Hillary Clinton is still in the race and not in prison DO have a choice; all they need to do is look at the very real revolution that has already taken place on the right...an America 1st candidate has been selected by the Republicans against the will of the GOP establishment. Isn't it time that the left, particularly the anti-war left sick and tired of the endless wars of the Clinton/Bush/Obama regimes, and the LGBT community put at grave risk by the Obama/Clinton/globalist policies, jump aboard the Trump revolution even if it means having to deal with the reality of the threat and scourge of Islam? Anybody on the left who is reading this needs to learn these very real and indisputable facts: Islam is not your friend and wanting borders is not racism. One thing is for sure, the masses on the left agree with the masses on the right, none of us want Hillary Clinton in Washington DC in January of 2017. Only the politically clueless, globalists and war criminals are still supporting Hillary while she's squirming as she's publicly ripped to shreds in both the alternative and mainstream media for enabling these terrorist attacks upon America by turning a blind eye to the 'death cult' that is Islam. Will America explode this summer of 2016 in chaos and revolution or will the American people, left and right, PEACEFULLY come together to overcome after realizing that we all have been 'taken for a ride' by the globalists within both the Democratic and Republican parties who have been working against our Republic for many years? Many years a 'pacifist', I've personally long been against violence as a means to an end (unless it is absoutely necessary in self defense) as it brings nothing but very real pain. I still stand against it now whether it be violence taken by 'protesters' against our public servants, violence taken against Americans for their race, religion or political views, ISIS inflicting very real carnage on innocent people across the world or our govt or NATO or other nations involved in UNJUST wars around the world. As long as there is a 'political end' to the globalists attempt to overthrow America, we'd be wise to 'ride that Revolution' into the sunset while we still can. Nobody is going to make everybody happy but the facts outlined in the must-read Facebook post below videos prove to us that at one group of people won't be happy no matter what happens politically, short of Sharia law in America. The post below comes to us from the Facebook page of actor Kevin Sorbo along with his introduction. Please keep in mind what we now know - as long as those in positions of power are doing nothing about this, they are enabling these acts to happen. How many more of the acts of terror described below were enabled by Hillary Clinton or those within govt who have blocked the investigations into terrorism at mosques due to political correctness? From actor Kevin Sorbo's Official Facebook Page April 18, 2015 · Yeah, I know this is long, but it will only take you 2 minutes to read. It is so good. I have posted this once before a while back, but needs to get out there again. Yeah, I also know that facts bug many of you. Sorry for more facts. THIS IS WORTH THE TIME IT TAKES TO READ!!!

Have you ever seen a Muslim hospital?

The answer is no, you have not. Just ask yourself WHY ???

Barack Obama, during his Cairo speech, said: "I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of America 's history." AN AMERICAN CITIZEN'S RESPONSE Dear Mr. Obama: Were those Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims first landed? Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians. Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving day? Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians. Can you show me one Muslim signature on the: United States Constitution? Declaration of Independence ? Bill of Rights? Didn't think so. Did Muslims fight for this country's freedom from England ? No. Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America ? No, they did not. In fact, Muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers in human slavery. Your own half-brother, a devout Muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black Muslims as "pug nosed slaves." Says a lot of what the Muslim world really thinks of your family's "rich Islamic heritage," doesn't it Mr. Obama? Where were Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this country? Not present. There are no pictures or media accounts of Muslims walking side by side with Martin Luther King, Jr. or helping to advance the cause of Civil Rights. Where were Muslims during this country's Woman's Suffrage era? Again, not present. In fact, devout Muslims demand that women are subservient to men in the Islamic culture. So much so, that often they are beaten for not wearing the 'hajib' or for talking to a man who is not a direct family member or their husband. Yep, the Muslims are all for women's rights, aren't they? Where were Muslims during World War II? They were aligned with Adolf Hitler. The Muslim grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops and accepted support from the Nazi's in killing Jews. Finally, Mr. Obama, where were Muslims on Sept. 11th, 2001? If they weren't flying planes into the World Trade Center , the Pentagon or a field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on our own soil, they were rejoicing in the Middle East . No one can dispute the pictures shown from all parts of the Muslim world celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other cable news network's that day. Strangely, the very "moderate" Muslims who's asses you bent over backwards to kiss in Cairo , Egypt on June 4th were stone cold silent post 9-11. To many Americans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of that day. And THAT, Mr. Obama, is the "rich heritage" Muslims have here in America ..... Oh, I'm sorry, I forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates. They were Muslims. And now we can add November 5, 2009 - the slaughter of American soldiers at Fort Hood by a Muslim major who is a doctor and a psychiatrist who was supposed to be counseling soldiers returning from battle in Iraq and Afghanistan .. Also, don't forget the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15.2013 was done by 2 Muslim Brothers. That, Mr. Obama is the "Muslim heritage" in America

Rainbow Flag Flies Outside Tulsa Public Schools Office

Posted: Jun 15, 2016 12:28 PM EST Updated: Jun 16, 2016 5:08 PM EST By: Emory Bryan, News On 6  TULSA, Oklahoma -

A "Gay Pride" flag is flying outside the headquarters of Tulsa Public Schools; according to the school board, the superintendent put it there. The flag is hard to see just passing by, but it's there, at half-staff, and most people wouldn't see it unless they visit the building. The district said it's a symbol of support as the American, Oklahoma and Gay Pride flags fly together outside the office of Tulsa Public Schools. It's surrounded by trees, and few people driving by seemed to notice, and the few people willing to talk about it seemed to mind. "I don't think that's a concern really. It's just showing solidarity, and I'm all for it," one person said. Another said, "I think, just having the solidarity is enough. I don't think it has to be a political statement." It's not unusual for the district to respond publicly to a news event, but never before has the district displayed a political symbol as a show of support. A district spokesman said it's there because: "We are deeply saddened by the recent senseless act of violence in Orlando, and we fly the pride flag to honor those affected by this tragedy. Tulsa Public Schools is a district committed to fostering safe and supportive climates where all of our students, teachers, and staff feel affirmed and respected." School board president, Lana Turner-Addison, said she didn't know the flag was there but said she talked with the superintendent who said it was her decision to have it up. One teacher said she supported it. "Personally, I don't think it's a political statement. We have a lot of students who identify as LGBTQ, and I think it's supporting our students and making them feel welcome," she said. The Pride flag is so new it has wrinkles from being folded. The district hasn't said who it belongs to, or how long it will fly. There are people opposed to the flag flying on a public school campus, but most commented online rather than on camera.

German ‘Boots on the Ground’ as NATO Troop Build-Up Continues on Syria-Turkey Border

June 15, 2016 By Vanessa Beeley 5 Comments 21st Century Wire says…

The US and NATO are pulling out all stops to turn their Syrian quagmire into something resembling their objectives in Syria. While US and UK troops had been setting up base in the north of Syria ostensibly in order to strike ISIS in Raqqa, the Syrian Arab Army has stolen a march on them with air-cover from the RUAF. In today’s reports from the Syrian Arab News Agency, we hear that the Syrian Army Air Force destroyed ISIS vehicles to the north of the Zakia crossroads and the south side of Tabqa city in the countryside of Raqqa province. Meanwhile, SANA claim that French and German forces have invaded north western Syria in the Ain al-Arab [Kobani] and Manbij areas. This brings them into proximity to the hotly contested Aleppo, Al Qaeda/Al Nusra central where 90% of civilians are being targeted daily in the government held western sectors of the city by a variety of US & NATO backed terrorists gangs embedded in the northern and eastern sectors, aided and abetted by their first response team, US and NATO funded Syria White Helmets. The following report is from the Syrian Arab News Agency in Damascus: “Syria on Wednesday strongly condemned the presence of French and German special forces in Ain al-Arab and Manbij areas. In a statement to SANA, an official source at Foreign and Expatriates Ministry considered this presence as a blatant interference, a flagrant violation of UN Charter’s principles and an overt unjustified aggression on the sovereignty and independence of Syria. “Commenting on news circulated regarding the presence of groups of French and German special forces in Ain al-Arab and Manbij areas on the Syrian territories, the Syrian Arab Republic vehemently condemns this blatant interference that constitutes a flagrant violation of UN Charter’s principles and an overt unjustified aggression on the sovereignty and independence of Syria,” the source said. It added that claiming that this violation comes within counter-terrorism process cannot delude any one because the active and legitimate counter-terrorism requires cooperation with the legitimate Syrian Government, whose army and people are fighting terrorism on each inch of the Syrian territory providing great sacrifices to cleanse the country of terrorism which constitutes a serious threat to the entire security and stability of the world. The source continued to say that the real intentions of this interference are beyond combating terrorism, especially that the countries involved in this action have constituted a main supporter to terrorism since the eruption of the crisis in Syria and hindered any sincere international effort for putting an end to this plague, particularly in terms of giving legitimacy to some terrorist groups through considering them moderate although their approach and ideology are not different from those of ISIS and al-Nusra. It added that the Syrian people stress once again their absolute adherence to the sovereignty and independence of Syria and its territorial integrity and readiness to provide more sacrifices to defend it. The Syrian Arab Republic calls the aggressor states to wake up from daydreams and abandon their illusions and colonialist mentality as the eras of Mandate and Guardianship have irretrievably gone.” In July 2013, the outgoing head of the British Army said the West would have to invade Syria if it wanted to topple the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. “You have to be able, as we did successfully in Libya, to hit ground targets,” General David Richards told The Telegraph. “If you want to have the material effect that people seek [i.e. Assad’s ouster] … you would be going to war if that is what you want to do.” According to Reuters, Germany is hotly denying the presence of their special forces in northern Syria: “There are no German special forces in Syria. The accusation is false,” a ministry spokesman said. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the Syrian civil war now in its sixth year, said French special forces were building a base for themselves near Kobani. France’s defense minister said last week that there were special forces operating in Syria helping the SDF advance towards Manbij. The Observatory also said German, French and American military advisers, and French and American special forces, were assisting the SDF in its fight against Islamic State but had so far remained in a support role and not fought on front lines.” The US and NATO is failing in Syria and it is failing because the Syrian people have steadfastly supported their armed forces and elected Government despite five years of crippling sanctions, US and NATO terrorism, hostile media and NGO complex generated propaganda on a scale never before witnessed in the history of imperialism. They will continue to fail but not without moving every chess piece at their command around the bloodied road map of Syria that is thwarting their neocolonialism and exposing their hypocrisy with every devious move they make.

It’s Be Kind to ISIS Week at the White House

By Ray Starmann

It’s 2016 America, where a feckless, gun grabbing, community organizer serves as Commander in Chief and half the nation is too politically correct to mutter the words, Radical Islamic Terrorism. Carpet bombing is out, soft spoken excuses are in. As ISIS rejoices over another mass slaughter perpetrated against the US by a crazed Jihadi hell bent on hitting a grand slam for Allah, the Democrats blame the problem on the Second Amendment. Yesterday, the nation awaited a response from the President. It got one. Instead of providing a coherent strategy to destroy ISIS or reassure Americans that he’s on the job, the President used the time to apologize for Islam, rant against Trump and present an infomercial on the benefits of diversity. Here are some highlights from the speech. The President’s comments are in italics: At the outset, I want to reiterate our objective in this fight. Our mission is to destroy ISIL. It is? I don’t think the White House has any objective at all. Why ISIL, Mr. President? Do you feel more academic by referring to those murdering bastards as ISIL instead of ISIS? Our aircraft continue to launch from the USS Harry Truman, now in the Mediterranean. Our B-52 bombers are hitting ISIL with precision strikes. Yes, we’re using one of the great terror weapons in the world, the B-52 to fire cruise missiles instead of saturating an area with carpet bombing. It’s like firing one round at a time with a machine gun. Targets are being identified and hit even more quickly — so far, 13,000 airstrikes. This campaign at this stage is firing on all cylinders. Firing on all cylinders? Pardon me while I choke on laughter. We’re firing on half a cylinder at best. The President’s 13,000 airstrikes in nearly two years of Operation Inherent Resolve make it an average of roughly 18 sorties a day against ISIS, which nearly three quarters are waved off because some liberal think tank pansy in the White House is concerned about collateral or environmental damage. Compare this to the 3,000 sorties a day in Desert Storm during the first week, which dropped down to 1500 a day during the rest of the war. Obama’s War on ISIS should be renamed Operation Kumbaya. As the President lauded his Phony War with ISIS, standing next to him was the Pentagon’s very own General Joe Dunford, who looked like a dime store mannequin in a Twilight Zone episode. ISIL’s ranks are shrinking as well. Their morale is sinking. Shrinking? They have more recruits than ever. Sinking morale? Then the President got to the heart of the matter. Forget about fighting a war. What really matters is the destruction of the Second Amendment. We have to make it harder for people who want to kill Americans to get their hands on weapons of war that let them kill dozens of innocents. Actually be tough on terrorism, and stop making it easy as possible for terrorists to buy assault weapons. Reinstate the assault weapons ban. The President moved on to his favorite subject – avoiding the words Radical Islamic Terrorism. For a while now, the main contribution of some of my friends on the other side of the aisle have made in the fight against ISIL is to criticize this administration and me for not using the phrase “radical Islam.” That’s the key, they tell us — we can’t beat ISIL unless we call them “radical Islamists.” What exactly would using this label accomplish? What exactly would it change? Would it make ISIL less committed to trying to kill Americans? Would it bring in more allies? Is there a military strategy that is served by this? The answer is none of the above. Calling a threat by a different name does not make it go away. Imagine FDR during World War II refusing to say Nazis or Nazi Germany. You have to identify a problem to solve it. It’s more than obvious the President is just a little too sympathetic of Islam. This is a man who said, “One of the most beautiful sounds in the world is the Muslim call to prayer.” Obviously, the Muslim call to prayer is something that gives most Americans a real warm and fuzzy every day. He needs to stop making excuses for Islam and start doing his constitutional duty to protect the American people. The President seemed more upset with Mr. Trump than with the Muslim scumbag that murdered 49 people. We now have proposals from the presumptive Republican nominee for President of the United States to bar all Muslims from emigrating to America. Actually, it’s a temporary ban on all citizens from certain countries that sponsor terrorism; places like Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, etc. We hear language that singles out immigrants and suggests that entire religious communities are complicit in violence. Where does this stop? The Orlando killer, one of the San Bernardino killers, the Fort Hood killer — they were all U.S. citizens. Yes, they were all US citizens and that is the most troubling feature of all. Irish and German and Vietnamese and Mexican and African Americans aren’t shooting up nightclubs while yelling Allah Akbar are they, Mr. President? Are we going to start treating all Muslim Americans differently? Are we going to start subjecting them to special surveillance? If we were actually taking the ISIS threat seriously, we would be conducting surveillance on mosques that have been a source for radical Islam. But, if you can’t say the word, you can’t do the surveillance. The President signed off with a diversity infomercial for our new kind, gentle, lactating and transgender military. Two weeks ago, I was at the commencement ceremony at the Air Force Academy. And it could not have been more inspiring to see these young people stepping up, dedicated to serve and protect this country. And part of what was inspiring was the incredible diversity of these cadets. We saw cadets, who are straight, applauding classmates who were openly gay. We saw cadets, born here in America, applauding classmates who are immigrants and love this country so much they decided they wanted to be part of our armed forces. We saw cadets and families of all religions applaud cadets who are proud, patriotic Muslim Americans serving their country in uniform, ready to lay their lives on the line to protect you and to protect me. We saw male cadets applauding for female classmates, who can now serve in combat positions. That’s the American military. That’s America — one team, one nation. Those are the values that ISIL is trying to destroy, and we shouldn’t help them do it. ISIS doesn’t have to destroy the US military. We are doing a fine job of exterminating the greatest force on earth all by ourselves. ISIS is laughing at us. ISIS knows they are winning and that they are going to continue to kick our butts until we get tough. If we ever get tough… Obama ended his wartime “fireside chat” with these words from the peace and granola field manual. Our diversity and our respect for one another, our drawing on the talents of everybody in this country, our making sure that we are treating everybody fairly — that we’re not judging people on the basis of what faith they are or what race they are, or what ethnicity they are, or what their sexual orientation is — that’s what makes this country great. What beautiful words. We’re so sensitive. We’re so politically correct. We’re so caring. Isn’t it special? We’re so open and diverse. We love everyone, even our enemies that want to destroy us. We wouldn’t want to insult anyone’s feelings. We’re so doomed… Is anyone in the White House or in the Democrat Party dealing with reality? Reality seems non-existent in today’s Democrat Party. Goodbye JFK, Hello Saul Alinsky. President Obama has become a virtual PC Czar whose lack of action and fortitude is putting the nation in mortal danger. ISIS is going to destroy us if we don’t get tough fast. The only chance the United States has to swerve away from this destructive course is Mr. Trump. Here are three words for you Mr. President, which will hopefully provide some guidance on how to wage war against the madmen of ISIS.

Steven Seagal: Many Mass Shootings Are “Engineered” by the Government

Posted by Self Sustained There are few issues right now more contentious than gun control. One of these issues happens to be “false flag” operations. Actor Steven Seagal has previously sounded off on both. In an interview with RT, the action star-turned second amendment fundamentalist claimed “a lot” of domestic shootings in America were “engineered” in order to drum up support for gun control legislation. In the video, Steven Seagal speaks forthrightly about his belief that there is a concerted effort by the government to violate our rights as part of an assault on the constitution: “I believe in the second amendment and our constitution more than anything in the world, and I think that Adolf Hitler – for example — when he wanted to annihilate the people of Germany — the first thing he did was to take away their guns. And the right to bear arms wasn’t just to protect the people from foreign invaders, it was to protect them from evil governments, and anyone that would violate their inherited rights as human beings.” ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA… Are you ready to turn back the clocks to the 1800’s for up to three years? Our grandfathers and great-grandfathers were the last generation to practice the basic things that we call survival skills now… WATCH THIS VIDEO and you will find many interesting things! He continues, “I believe that, and I hate to say this, a lot of these mass murders and all this funny stuff that’s going on, I believe a lot of this is engineered.” The conspiracy theory surrounding domestic false flag shootings conjures intense emotions on both sides. “Truthers” claim the government uses either CIA operatives or patsies controlled by MKULTRA style psyops in order to foment violence so abhorrent that Americans will be forced to embrace gun control legislation. They believe the end-game of such an insidious scheme is to disarm the general population in advance of extensive martial law or indefinite FEMA detention. Whether any of this theory is true or not is endlessly debatable but highly unlikely. Theorists who claim every mass shooting is a government conspiracy — without providing concrete proof — detract from the documented fact that governments do partake in conspiracies and false flag operations. However, while the mechanism by which domestic shootings could be “engineered” is still unknown, the MKULTRA program is an established historical fact. Researchers are still uncovering CIA connections from this time period, but we do know experimental subjects included Ted Kaczynski, the Unabomber.

'We're Heading In A Very Dangerous Direction' - Tis The Season Of Treason In America As The Globalists Kick Their Plans To Disarm The American People Into Overdrive

June 17, 2016 By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States. 18 U.S. Code 2381 - Treason. The story over at The Atlantic tells us that according to Donald Trump (and many others), "Barack Obama puts America's 'enemy over our allies', even using the word 'treason' to describe what we're now witnessing from our present 'commander-in-chief'. A new story from Front Page Mag tells us that Obama has just invited top communist military and intelligence officials to inspect US defense facilities. Why would he do such a thing as opening up vital national security secrets to 'narco-terrorists'? Has Obama already surrendered? “President Obama claims to know our enemy, and yet he continues to prioritize our enemy over our allies, and for that matter, the American people,” Trump said in a statement to the AP. “When I am President, it will always be America First.” Trump and The Atlantic story aren't the only ones throwing the 'treason' word around and even former presidential candidate and Arizona senator John McCain recently launched into Barack Obama, saying that Obama was 'directly responsible for the Orlando terror attack' because he's allowed the 'rise of ISIS' on his watch. He later backed down on that statement, sort of, saying that Obama wasn't responsible for ISIS' rise but his 'national security decisions' were. Seriously? If Obama's DECISIONS are responsible for the 'rise of ISIS', so is Obama. While we are not here to play 'judge, jury nor executioner', we have published story after story after story on ANP outlining what appears to be decisions made at the highest level of government in America that have put Americans at risk while comforting and aiding our enemies. From decisions made by Hillary Clinton's State Department that led to the loss of lives in Benghazi to both Hillary and Obama leaving the doors wide open to as many terrorists as they want to come into this country we have to ask, why haven't Obama and Hillary ALREADY been charged with treason? It's been proven that Hillary's State Department blocked the FBI investigation into the Orlando killers mosque while we now have absolute proof that the Orlando killers father visited the Hillary Clinton State Department at least 4 times! What was this mass murderer's father doing visiting Hillary's State Department? The fact that this man, who wanted to be the 'future president of Afghanistan,' also HATED America and WROTE OPEN LETTERS to Obama should not be overlooked. Is it just a coincidence that the father of a man who allegedly gunned down 50 Americans has ties to both Obama and Clinton? Taking that one step further, is it just a coincidence that this mass murder and slaughter, the killer who has now been proven to have ties to both Hillary Clinton and Obama, is now being used by the same administration in a very real attempt to take Americans guns away? We'll take a look below at some recent and very disturbing news we have just learned along the gun confiscation front. America now has a very real 'conundrum' and the answer to it will not be solved easily. According to Jeh Johnson, the head of the Department of Homeland Security, 'gun control' is now a 'homeland security' matter. One author and political activist takes that statement of Johnson's one step further. According to Andy Parker, father of the reporter allegedly gunned down on air in Virginia last year, any politicians who are NOT for very strong gun control are committing treason against America. We'll contrast that with a story recently written by Brandon Ward over at World Events and the Bible who claims that Trump, the entire GOP and the National Rifle Association should be considered treasonous for even thinking about restraining the rights of Americans to buy guns after Trump recently tweeted that Americans on the no-fly list or terrorist watch list shouldn't be able to buy guns as seen in the Tweet below. What Ward pointed out in his story that Mr. Trump didn't point out in his tweet is that there are possibly thousands and thousands of law-abiding American citizens on the terrorist watchlist and no-fly lists right now and even Maryland Congressman Steny Hoyer has stated that he has no idea whatsoever how a person's name gets on that list nor how they can get their name off the list.

When They Come for Your Guns, They Will Soon Come for You

Dave Hodges

Meet “Team Genocide”. They want your guns at any cost. They stage false flag attacks as a pretext to get your guns. America needs to ask, why do they need our guns? “Passing gun control is now part and parcel of homeland security” Jeh Johnson-Director of Homeland Security On the way to work, it is possible that Jeh Johnson was stricken with a form of globalist amnesia. He seems to have forgotten that he is in charge of an administrative arm of the United States government; he is not in charge of Congress. Johnson seems to think that it is duty to confiscate all guns from American citizens. Any civics student know that is illegal. But we forget, that we are playing in a game with no rules. The Constitution is a joke to the Obama administration. This administration governs by one precept: MIGHT MAKES RIGHT! The Secretary of Homeland Security has declared war on the Second Amendment and is attempting to bootstrap the tragic events in Orlando as an excuse to throw the Second Amendment on the scrap heap of history: Has Johnson lost his mind? History clearly tells us that when a government confiscates its citizens’ guns, they will soon be committing genocide against these same citizens. Case in point follows from the University of Hawaii which is listed below. The Lessons of History Soon Forgotten Seizing Guns As a Prelude to Democide hawaii democide Do you think that mankind is becoming more civilized due in part to the all the new technology being introduced to society? Think again, nothing could be further from the truth. The 20th century witnessed a record number of people murdered by their government and in each case, each individual genocide was preceded by gun confiscation which took away the citizens ability to protect themselves against a tyrannical government. The University of Hawaii has sponsored a project in which they have analyzed the number of people who have been murdered by their government. The term that the University of Hawaii uses to describe this action is democide (i.e. death by government). The number totals a staggering 262,000,000 people have been murdered by their government between the years to 1900-1987. This is what makes Johnson’s ideas so terribly dangerous because it could potentially render Americans defenseless against an invading army or worse yet, an out of control tyrannical government. In Jeh Johnson’s World, This Man Can Own a Gun Omar Mateen, the perpetrator of the worst mass shooting in American history. The company he worked for is owned by Wackenhut, one DHS’ favorite contractors. This is the same Wackenhut that engages in “snatch and release” programs in which OTM’s (other than Mexicans) are caught at the border and released in the interior. These released illegals include people from the Middle East. Why isn’t Jeh Johnson speaking out against this threat to homeland security? In Jeh Johnson’s World, You Cannot Own a Gun How Well Has This Latest Version of Trading Liberty for Security Worked? If you are ever dumb enough to give up your gun, or advocate that others give up their guns, the above two captions capture the kind of society history says you will inhabit.

DOJ overrules FBI on gun sales debate, says no-fly list can be used for ban

By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Thursday, June 16, 2016

Attorney General Loretta Lynch overruled FBI Director James B. Comey this week, saying the Obama administration does support denying firearms sales to those on terrorist watch lists and that it can be done without harming investigations. Mr. Comey last year had told Congress that denying sales could “blow” his agents’ investigations into potential terrorists. But his superiors at the Justice Department issued a statement Thursday saying they want to see Congress approve the “no-fly, no-buy” plan Democrats are pursuing. “The amendment gives the Justice Department an important additional tool to prevent the sale of guns to suspected terrorists by licensed firearms dealers while ensuring protection of the department’s operational and investigative sensitivities,” department spokesman Dena Iverson said in a statement. In the wake of the weekend’s terror-related shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Democrats have zeroed in on guns, arguing that Omar Mateen’s rampage could have been avoided had Congress enacted a ban on gun sales to those on the government’s watch lists, which are supposed to detail those known or suspected to have ties to terrorism. The FBI has poked holes in that theory, saying that while Mateen had been listed while under investigation a few years ago, he had been removed after the agency was unable to make a case against him. Under the current system, if someone on the list attempts to buy a firearm, the sale

Quad-Phillim? Scientists Want To Create Babies FROM DNA OF 4 PEOPLE

June 16, 2016 by SkyWatch Editor

A team of U.K. scientists is pushing to develop a process for genetically modified babies, using DNA from four parents. The Christian Institute reports that a group of scientists at Newcastle University have been experimenting with Pro-Nuclear Transfer (PNT), which involves transferring DNA from one embryo (created with DNA from two parents) to another embryo (also created with DNA from two parents), thus creating an embryo with DNA from four different individuals. Many scientists and ethicists have condemned the process because it is risky and involves the destruction of hundreds of embryos. Nevertheless, the Newcastle team hopes to continue with their research. etc.

Scientists Are Developing a Mind-Reading Machine at Yale

AmericanIntelligenceReport / June 8, 2016

Scientist’s are Developing a Mind-Reading Machine that Can Read and Translate Your Thoughts Into Text, Including Images Tiff Grandstaff | American Intelligence Report

A device that might make our internal monologues a thing of the past was just announced as being under development right here in the United States. This eavesdropping machine can actually hear the little voices inside your head and make them known to others. The potentially dangerous mind-reading device is being developed by American and German scientists at Yale, with a study led by Professor Marvin Chun and designed by Alan Cowen, a PhD student at the university. Their efforts are being combined to develop an advanced instrument that turns our secret thoughts into readable text and recognizable imagery. As stated recently in The Daily Mail, scientists on the project have the goal of reproducing audible speech using our inaudible brain functions, and they want to do it in real-time. Understanding the Mechanism Electrodes are placed directly on the head correlating with the speech and language centers of the brain. This is all done while the subject is awake and alert. Electrical responses to various stimuli are monitored and measured by scientists and then matched with computer generated signals which correspond to distinct speech patterns. While electrodes and underdeveloped technology currently limit the applications for the device, scientists are busily looking for the loopholes. Yale has even teamed up with UC Berkeley to determine how hearing, speaking, and imaging overlap in the brain, with Professor Robert Knight leading the team of researchers. He stated in a recent interview, “We want to develop an implantable device that decodes the signals that occur in the brain when we think about a word, then turn these signals into a sound file that can be reproduced by a speech device.” With the device being planned for future implantation, it is not illogical to wonder what the real agenda is. Knight was also quoted as saying, “Our ultimate goal is to create a small device that can be used in everyday life.” The device might sound like a dream come true for some, but for others the potential that the device might to get placed into the wrong hands is more than frightening, it’s downright creepy. Questioning the Motives Today’s typical brain scans already have the ability to create rudimentary pictures of what we are thinking and/or feeling, but this new machine is lightyears ahead. Recently, scientists were able to successfully translate and play back a word that their subject thought simply by monitoring their brain activity. Furthermore, the device, which remains nameless at the moment, can actually view images that are stored deep inside your memory bank. While that might sound kind of amazing to some, it still begs the question as to what the purpose of such a machine might be for Americans in the future. As the envelope of neuro-telepathy gets continually pushed, our privacy is also being incessantly challenged. Still, most innovations with the potential to invade our privacy come wrapped in a nice humanitarian cover story, and this one is no different. The Daily Mail reports that the machine is being developed to help sufferers of Lou Gehrig’s disease, Alzheimer’s, stroke, and dementia. The L.A. Times, though, is unabashedly claiming that the machine is being produced for the purposes of investigations involving facial reconstruction. The Final Verdict Whatever the case, the agreed upon goal is to communicate a person’s private thoughts via a video screen, electronic speaker, or word processor. Rest assured; this is only the beginning of the end of the Fifth Amendment, which outlines our right to remain silent. If you think this sounds like science fiction, or the plot of Minority Report, you should know that there are already devices in use that can read your facial expressions or emotions in order to prevent car accidents and road rage. Moreover, Fox News reported way back in 2008 that Homeland Security would attempt to detect terrorist activity by monitoring the intent of American citizens. In short, we might soon be incriminating ourselves without even trying, and it will be seen as acceptable under the guise of freedom, justice, safety, and medicine. Sources:

Like The Watchers In The Days Of Noah, We’ve Set Sail To Create Synthetic People And To Replace Entire Species Via ‘Gene Drives’ June 14, 2016 by SkyWatch Editor

Making synthetic people is not such a far-fetched fear. Regalado points out that Church has proposed exactly that project in his 2012 book Regenesis: How Synthetic Biology Will Reinvent Nature and Ourselves. Church wants to recode the human genome to make it impossible for viruses to enter. HIV and the common cold, gone […] But here, in one sentence, is the issue with gene drives. “The emergence of gene-drive systems — which spread engineered mutations quickly through populations — means that a single released organism could eventually alter most of its local population, and quite possibly all populations of the species throughout the world.” That from Kevin Esvelt, in a post at Nature. In a profile at TechReview, Antonio Regalado calls Esvelt “the moralist policing gene drives, a technology that messes with evolution.” Esvelt worked with the ever-present George Church on the gene-editing system known as CRISPR for genome engineering. Regalado credits Esvelt with bringing the gene drive safety issue to public attention two years ago. (READ MORE)

Scientists Are Using Corporate Funds to Rewrite the Human Genome From Scratch

Posted on June 16, 2016Big Pharma By Chris “Kikila” Perrin

When it comes to science, discovering something new is perhaps one of the fundamental motivators for research. For the most part, the impact these discoveries have are mostly centered within the scientific community, or tend to become a link in a long chain of discovery. Yet when it comes to the potential to write a human genome, from nothing, the implication is a little broader. A new project announced last week will see a team of scientists doing exactly that: working to develop a process whereby a complete human genome can be written in a lab. The Human Genome Project-write (HGP-write), nominally linked to the Human Genome Project (HGP) that saw the mapping of the human genome mapped in its entirety in 2004, is a project designed to artificially synthesize the foundational biological building blocks of the human being. A project that is entirely based on potential, the scientific and medical applicability of this experiment seems almost limitless. Thanks to information generated through the original HGP, scientists are already able to synthesize aspects of genomes, helping us to heal and increasing our understanding of human biology and how disease and other potentially harmful agents interact with us. Science and the power of discovery, however, is not the only issue here. Despite a project outline published in the journal Science earlier this year, there are several questions that HGP-write have simply not answered. Moreover, the authors of the paper have left certain moral and ethical questions out in their entirety. If this were not enough to cause concern among policy-makers and the general public, that the meetings concerning HGP-write have been conducted behind closed doors — doors paid for heavily by corporate donors, with no press permitted to attend — is causing even more worry. Working to cure disease and understand the nature of our being is, intrinsically, a noble pursuit. Few would argue this point. Things done for the greater good of humanity, however, might include a more democratic voice — particularly when there are questionable applications for the new science, or new technology. If the article in Science contained some discussion on the ethics of writing a human genome from scratch, or perhaps even some discussion on the potential ability of this technology to create designer human beings, then concerns might be lessened. Being able to write a human genome moves scientists and biologists a little closer to having the technological capacity of manufacturing a customized human being. Although this is not specifically the nature of the project as outlined in Science, the HGP-write project makes moving beyond simple genome manipulation and entering into full creation a conceivable possibility. It is here where critics are calling for a deeper, broader discussion concerning the ethics of not only the project, but the concept in general.

Combining Multiple Childhood Vaccines Not Safe Says Article in Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons

Posted on June 16, 2016 Vaccines By Natural Blaze

TUCSON, Ariz., June 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Multiple childhood vaccines are often given at one visit, but contrary to the claims of public health officials there is evidence that this practice is unsafe, writes medical research journalist Neil Z. Miller in the summer issue of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons. Miller used data in the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), jointly operated by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which was established in 1990. This contains about 500,000 reports of adverse events that occurred in association with, but not necessarily caused by vaccines. Miller acknowledges that health authorities often suggest that VAERS may be unreliable, but points out that CDC considers VAERS an important vaccine safety assessment tool and regularly conducts its own studies using VAERS data. Miller writes, Although CDC recommends polio, hepatitis B, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, rotavirus, Haemophilus influenzae type B, and pneumococcal vaccines for two-, four-, and six-month-old infants, this combination of eight vaccines administered during a single physician visit was never tested for safety in clinical trials. This is at odds with a CDC report which found that mixed exposures to chemical substances and other stress factors, including prescribed pharmaceuticals, may produce ‘increased or unexpected deleterious health effects.’ Miller looked at the percentage of reported reactions that involved hospitalization or death as related to the number of vaccine doses the infant had received, and to the age of the infant. “Our study showed that infants who receive several vaccines concurrently…are significantly more likely to be hospitalized or die when compared with infants who receive fewer vaccines simultaneously,” he writes. “It also showed that reported adverse effects were more likely to lead to hospitalization or death in younger infants.” In infants receiving five or more vaccines concurrently, 5.4% of reported reactions were fatal, compared with 3.6% in those receiving four or fewer, the study shows. “Parents and physicians should consider health options associated with a lower risk of hospitalization or death,” Miller concludes.

Move Over Zika: A Superbug Hits Brazilian Beaches

Posted On June 16, 2016 By Katherine Marko

Masses of athletes and millions of spectators are heading to Brazil for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games starting on Aug. 5. As Brazil scrambles to gain control of a mosquito-borne Zika virus outbreak, now they have to contend with a new superbug lurking in Rio’s waters. Infested beaches and waterways Article: Coffee Plus Honey More Effective Than Steroids for Cough Just under two months from the opening of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, scientists have found a dangerous drug-resistant “super bacteria” in areas that will draw thousands of Olympics fans to scheduled events, reports Reuters. Two unpublished studies disclosed to the newswire suggest that hazardous microbes normally only found in hospitals and which may be antibiotic resistant are found in and near the country’s beaches. The report also claims that Rio’s sewage-infested waterways are unsafe. The bacterium is said to cause urinary, gastrointestinal, pulmonary and bloodstream infections and meningitis. Most frightening, the Centers for Disease Control says the bacterium can kill up to half of people infected.

How Will You Cope With A Lower Standard of Living?

Jun 11 Posted by sierra2one By: Tom Chatham

The forces are mounting that will eventually overwhelm most Americans and send their standard of living to unknown depths. Americans that have only known the post WWII prosperity are ill equipped and educated to deal with depression level living. Easy credit and instant gratification have created a nation of whining, self absorbed, entitlement minded people with no moral or mental toughness. Doug Casey believes we are headed for what he calls a super depression created by the ending of a debt super cycle. The bigger the debt cycle the bigger the depression that follows. That’s how reality works and most people are not prepared for reality. When this depression, which has already started, gets momentum, it will overwhelm the plans of a society that is expecting to get things like social security, pensions and payouts from retirement plans they have paid into for many years. All of those things will disappear almost overnight and leave society gasping and stupefied over what to do. Their reactions will be to yell and scream and try to identify who to blame but the only person they should blame is the one in the mirror. Many very smart people have raised the alarm and done their best to warn the sleeping public, but those slumbering masses have ignored the warnings and hit the snooze button one more time. The masses do not understand economics, do not want to understand economics and they will pay dearly for that ignorance in the coming days. When the real unemployment rate becomes common knowledge as it increases substantially, people will be left to survive on what resources they have saved up outside the banking system that cannot be stolen by the politicians and bankers. That is a key point here. The assets you have outside the system that cannot be stolen from you with a few key strokes on some computer. Those hoping for some miraculous event that will send the U.S. back to the days of manufacturing might and jobs for all will never see it happen. Those days are gone. The west line theory tells us our economy will slow down and become more modest as the shipping center of the world moves west to the next powerhouse region which is Asia. This is what history teaches us. When people suddenly wake up one morning and they have no job, their retirement is gone and they need to care for their family, what will they do? When government services have collapsed and they suddenly realize they are now living in a third world country with few government services, what will they do? When the banks are closed and only a select few connected people have any type of money or access to goods, what will they do? This is the reality that many people will face in the future and they have no idea how bad it can get. They refuse to contemplate the harsh reality they will be living in and take steps to mitigate the effects. To do so would be to acknowledge it could happen and they are taking personal responsibility. Personal responsibility is a dirty phrase in today’s entitlement society. To see some of the effects one only has to look at the collapse of society in Venezuela today to see what awaits. When it happens it will all fall back to you to take responsibility for your family and take care of them for the duration. To do that you need to plan now for that eventuality and build up the resources you will need to provide food, shelter, clothing and security when the system fails to do it for you. You need to be Noah on his ark not the people watching as he floated away. Having resources stored up is a must but it may not get you all the way through if the situation lasts for many years. That is why you need some type of plan to replace those resources as time goes by and have some way to generate some type of income or at least items to trade. Usable goods are for the short term and things like gold ,silver and production equipment are for the long term to help you get through the crisis with the least amount of pain. Even with proper planning the days ahead will not be easy as the standard of living of society will fall substantially to levels only seen in failed third world countries or old pictures. The assets actually owned by people today is very small compared to how they live. They will default on their home loan, their car loan, and their credit card debt leaving them with very few real possessions and few ways to move what they have left even if they have some place to go. Ultimately these people will become the new serfs to the wealthy class that will take possession of anything of value. Feudalism will once again rule. The lack of planning by society will make this a reality if it is allowed. What will you do when everything you have worked a lifetime for is suddenly taken away? Do you have a plan to keep what you have? Do you have a plan to make money when you cannot find a job? Do you have a way to take care of your family until things stabilize? Do you have a home you will not lose if the whole system breaks down? What will you do if electricity or fuel is too expensive to buy or not available to the general population? These are the questions you should be asking yourself now and you better have a good answer because your family will be asking them when the greater depression sets in.

U.S. and Russian Jets Clash Over Syria

06.19.16 9:20 PM ET

American and Russian fighter jets had a tense showdown in the skies above Syria as the Russians dropped bombs on U.S.-backed rebels. U.S. and Russian fighter jets bloodlessly tangled in the air over Syria on June 16 as the American pilots tried and failed to stop the Russians from bombing U.S.-backed rebels in southern Syria near the border with Jordan. The aerial close encounter underscores just how chaotic Syria’s skies have become as Russia and the U.S.-led coalition work at cross-purposes, each dropping bombs in support of separate factions in the five-year-old civil war. The near-clash also highlights the escalating risk of American and Russian forces actually coming to blows over Syria, potentially sparking a much wider conflict between the world’s leading nuclear powers. The incident began when at least two twin-engine Su-34 bombers, some of Moscow’s most advanced warplanes, struck what the Pentagon described as a “border garrison” housing around 200 U.S.-supported rebels in At Tanf on the Syrian side of the Syria-Jordan border. The rebels had been “conducting counter-ISIL operations in the area,” the Pentagon stated on June 18, using an alternative acronym for ISIS. The United States and its allies in Syria clearly did not expect the air strike. The rebels in At Tanf are party to a shaky ceasefire agreement between rebel forces and the regime of Syrian president Bashar Al Assad—and, by extension, the Russian military contingent backing Al Assad. The Los Angeles Times reported that Russian planes had not previously been active over At Tanf. The Su-34s’ initial strike wounded, and perhaps killed, some of the rebels in At Tanf. The U.S. Navy scrambled F/A-18 fighters to intercept the Russians, the Los Angeles Times reported. The Navy has deployed two aircraft carriers to the region for strikes on ISIS. As the F/A-18s approached the Su-34s, officials with U.S. Central Command—which oversees America’s wars in the Middle East and Afghanistan—used a special hotline to contact their Russian counterparts directing Russia’s own intervention in Syria. Arriving over At Tanf, the American pilots apparently spoke directly to the Russian aviators. “Pilots CAN communicate with one another on a communications channel set up to avoid air accidents,” Central Command confirmed in a statement to The Daily Beast. Washington and Moscow had established the hotline as part of a so-called Safety of Flight Memorandum of Understanding that the two governments signed in October specifically in order to avoid the kind of aerial confrontation that occurred over Syria last week. With the American jets flying close enough to visually identify the Su-34s, the Russians departed the air space over At Tanf. Some time shortly thereafter, the F/A-18s ran low on fuel and left the area in order to link up with an aerial tanker. That’s when the Su-34s reportedly returned to At Tanf—and bombed the rebels again. According to the Los Angeles Times, the second strike killed first-responders assisting survivors of the first bombing run. The next day, senior U.S. Defense Department officials organized an “extraordinary” video conference with Russian counterparts to discuss the incident. The meeting included Acting Assistant Secretary for International Security Affairs Elissa Slotkin and U.S. Marine Corps Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, a strategic planner on the Pentagon’s joint staff, plus unspecified Russian Ministry of Defense officials. “Department officials expressed strong concerns about the attack on the coalition-supported counter-ISIL forces at the At Tanf garrison, which included forces that are participants in the cessation of hostilities in Syria, and emphasized that those concerns would be addressed through ongoing diplomatic discussions on the cessation of hostilities,” Defense Department spokesman Peter Cook explained in a statement. "Regarding safety, department officials conveyed that Russia’s continued strikes at At Tanf, even after U.S. attempts to inform Russian forces through proper channels of on-going coalition air support to the counter-ISIL forces, created safety concerns for U.S. and coalition forces,” Cook continued. “Department officials requested Russian responses to address those concerns.” Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov confirmed, via the country’s state-owned media, that the teleconference took place—but he did not specify the results of the “extraordinary” meeting. Russian warplanes had previously shadowed planes belonging to the U.S.-led coalition over Syria, but the coalition always described the Russians’ behavior as “professional.” By contrast, in April Russian Su-24 bombers repeatedly buzzed the U.S. Navy warship USS Donald Cook while the vessel sailed in international waters in the Black Sea. A Pentagon spokesman called the Russians’ actions in that incident “provocative and unprofessional.” The Kremlin should be keenly aware of the potential for unwanted—and potentially destabilizing—bloodshed that exists in the air over Syria. In November, a Russian Su-24 bomber flying a mission over Syria strayed over the Syria-Turkey border into Turkey—and a Turkish F-16 fighter promptly shot it down. The two Russian crew members ejected. One flier died when Syrian rebels on the ground opened fire on his parachute. Russian, Syrian, and Iranian forces launched a complex rescue mission that ultimately retrieved the surviving pilot. One Russian marine died and a helicopter was destroyed during that operation. The fallout from the November incident continues, with Russia and Turkey exchanging threats—and Moscow imposing economic sanctions on Ankarra including limits on some food imports to Russia from Turkey. It’s not clear how close the U.S. fighters came to attacking and potentially shooting down the Su-34s over At Tanf. Central Command declined to say what the rules of engagement are for American pilots flying over Syria. “ROE are actually specifics that we don’t get into,” Central Command said in a statement. The last time a U.S. military warplane shot down a Russian—actually, Soviet—plane was in 1953, over Korea or China, depending on which historians you believe. The last time a Russian or Soviet warplane shot down an American aircraft was in 1970, when a U.S. Army plane strayed over Armenia.

We Will Never Make Evil Stop. Only God Can Do That.

Jun. 16, 2016 2:52pm Matt Walsh

The cover of the Boston Glob (note: I originally meant to type “Globe” but then realized that my typo is oddly appropriate, so I’m leaving it) today features a big, scary gun and the words “Make It Stop.” The paper calls for a ban on “assault weapons” in order to “stop gun violence.” The left is hailing this as “courageous,” as if it takes courage to engage in meaningless and popular platitudes. The Glob’s stand is not brave and it’s not unprecedented. It is merely echoing the sentiments of many people in our culture. We need to stop bad things, they say, and the way to do this is to pass another set of laws. It’s explained that we will place these laws on top of the 1,000 layers of pre-existing laws, and finally this last layer will be the thing that “makes it stop.” Of course, this country’s original law – the Constitution – is contradicted and ultimately erased by many of the laws on top of it. This is by design. The left views the law as the problem, and in order to rectify it they pass additional laws. But, you’ll notice, they never attempt to officially amend or abolish the original laws. They just create laws to compete with the ones they don’t like, and then leave it up to the judges to side with whichever law they personally prefer. This is how the left plans to “make it stop.” I’d like to go beyond the particulars of the gun control debate and deal with this idea that laws – or any other human effort – can make evil stop. It’s a silly and immature notion, but it’s also quite common, and I believe it does come from a sincere place in the human soul. Indeed, we all want to “make it stop.” We all recognize that evil should not be happening, and we simply cannot bear, and refuse to accept, that it will continue right along no matter what we do. Although we all see that the world can be an ugly and brutal place, we still have this odd and fanciful notion that the ugliness is an aberration and the brutality doesn’t belong. Even though there seems to be far less goodness than there is badness, it seems we instinctively recognize the badness as a mutation, and the goodness as the way things ought to be. Anyone looking at things purely scientifically and objectively could not possibly reach these conclusions. Based on all available evidence, we should not even attempt to “make it stop” because “it” appears to be the primary function of the universe. A look at current events or a study of any point in human history reveals that bad men are always doing bad things. And they do them so often and so consistently that it doesn’t even make sense to call it bad. It seems we should call it natural. Trying to take all of the violence and hatred out of the world is like trying to take all of the water out of the ocean. Not only is it impossible, but even if you succeeded, it wouldn’t be the ocean anymore. That’s how it would seem, anyway, if you’re approaching this from a secular and materialistic perspective. But hardly anyone will admit that world is naturally and fundamentally and intrinsically bad. It’s interesting that even secularists and materialists do not approach this question from a secular and materialistic point of view. Everyone still sees evil as a usurper, an unwelcome guest; something that can, and ought to be, destroyed. And we’re right. Evil is a parasite that has attached itself to the world. The world was not built to house evil. People were not created for the purpose of doing evil. The world was assembled for goodness and beauty, and so were we. We have had to contort and pervert ourselves to accommodate badness. That’s why there is no harmony with evil. Evils cannot even reach compromises and agreements among themselves. They’re constantly warring with each other and fighting over the same stolen land. Evil was never meant to be here. The world was never meant to be used like this. We were never meant to do the awful things we do. The world was never meant to be the awful place it is. The world is like a great structure designed to be a cathedral but converted almost immediately into a whore house. The trouble is that once you allow the evil into the world – once you open the door to it and say, “Please, come in” – you cannot so easily expel it. Once you have the cancer, you cannot suddenly demand that it leaves. You need a doctor for that, and even when you go to the doctor, you have to accept that the process of destroying the disease will be long, painful, and costly. The question becomes: Who is the doctor? Many people in our culture think the government can play that role. Or sometimes they think actual doctors can be the doctors. They turn every act of evil into a medical or psychological condition and expect the “medical community” to come up with the solution. But doctors and politicians do not have the cure. They are just as sick as you, maybe even sicker. We have to keep looking. The fact that we are looking at all should, in itself, tell us that there is, somewhere, something to find. As C.S. Lewis wrote, if we have a desire for something, it means there must be an object. There must be a way to satiate it. We cannot desire things that do not exist. So hunger is evidence that food exists. Thirst is evidence that water exists. And, I would say, our desire for a great doctor, a force that can come and solve evil, is evidence that such a force exists. His name is God. We are made by God and for Him. We were made to love, to hope, to give. We were not made to hate, to envy, to lie, to destroy. These are unnatural acts. The more we do them, and the more everyone else does them, the less the world can function. It’s like trying to fuel your Jeep with urine. It was not made to run on human secretions just as the world was not made to run on sin. And it can’t. It just stands stands still and rusts gradually away. We were made to live in a beautiful and loving world, and then finally to be reunited with Him in an even more beautiful and loving one. But there is no love without freedom. There is no love that is not chosen. Love cannot be compelled, not even by God. God did not stage some giant puppet show for Himself. He did not build robots or computer systems. He built powerful and sentient creatures and gave us the ability to choose right or wrong, virtue or sin, good or evil. He made us to go in a particular direction, but because he wanted us to love, he also gave us the ability to go another way. Humanity very often chooses the latter. And that’s where all the trouble arises. The good news is that God did not just build the world and then retire to his room to take a nap for several thousand years. He is still here, trying to help us get back on the path He paved for us. If He were the sort of God who gives up and says, “To hell with you ungrateful brats,” He would have walked away after the whole debacle with Adam and Eve. And who could have blamed Him? But God so desperately wants us to come home to Him that He went to Earth Himself and willingly paid the price for our sins. And He remains with us now, trying every moment to guide us in. Remember, the father in the Prodigal Son parable did not stand at his door and wave to his son as the young man walked up the pathway. He ran down to him. He met him on the road. He embraced him, and forgave him, and said, “Let’s go inside and celebrate.” That’s where we belong. At home with Him. We were made for joy. We were not made to live amid these horrors. Even less were we made to contribute to the horrors ourselves. So the solution – the solution that we all desire, whether we recognize it or not – is to drag our sick bodies back to God and give ourselves over to His healing and His mercy. Want to make it stop? You can’t. Neither can the government. Neither can anyone here on Earth. Only God has the cure, but we must accept it, and we must follow the prescriptions he gives us, even if they’re painful and difficult. We have to focus first on stopping the evil within ourselves. I cannot hope to help treat the epidemic if the disease is already inside me and wreaking havoc on my body. I have to go to the doctor, go to God, and ask Him to put me on the road to recovery. And then, finally, at a time unknown to everyone, the Lord will come and make all the evil stop. He will cure the whole outbreak all at once. He will snuff it out at the source. The final battle will be waged, and evil will die its final death. Until that moment, there will be evil. After it, there will be none. It will all be over. Everything will be restored to its original design. The whores will be driven out of the cathedral, and only beauty and holiness will remain. There will be no more time for choosing between good and evil at that point. We are the whores in the cathedral – if that wasn’t clear from my analogy – and when God shows up at the entrance and starts clearing out the riffraff, it will be no use to say then, “Oh, actually I changed my mind.” Our choice will already be made, and we will have to live or die with it. He will make it stop all right. We better just make sure we are not among the ones He stops. So, in the mean time, if we want at least to fight the evil – not to “stop” it entirely, but to struggle against it – and if we want to protect ourselves and our families from it, then we should follow Him. We should pray relentlessly. We should go to church. We should read the Scripture. We should follow the prescriptions the doctor gives us. We should live healthy spiritual lives, so that we can be sure that we are more a part of the solution than the problem. We should be people of faith, courage, and hope. We should stick close to God. And, on a practical level, it probably wouldn’t hurt to buy a gun.

Watchman Warning: Soft Target

By Hal Lindsey

Security analysts see all gatherings of people as potential terrorist targets. Generally, they divide them into two categories — “hard targets” and “soft targets.” Hard targets are well guarded and soft targets have little or no defense. In light of the Orlando terror attack, we might expect government officials to look for ways to turn more soft targets into hard ones. But just the opposite is happening. Almost immediately following the attack, the politics of gun control began to drive much of the discussion. Gun control advocates want to diminish our ability to defend ourselves. They want to turn us — along with our places of work, of worship, and our homes — into soft targets. Under present law, a terrorist would be crazy to use guns in an assault on a conservative, evangelical church in Texas. That’s because a significant number of conservative evangelicals have chosen to take advantage of that state’s right to carry laws. Even in a small Texas church, there’s a good chance someone will be packing heat. It would be almost impossible for one terrorist to shoot over a hundred people, killing almost half — if some of those people were shooting back. Someone might argue that Jesus was against violence, but a closer look at scripture tells a more nuanced story. In Luke 9, Jesus sent some of His disciples on a short missionary journey. He “sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God, and to perform healing. And He said to them, ‘Take nothing for your journey, neither a staff, nor a bag, nor bread, nor money; and do not even have two tunics apiece.’” (Luke 9:2-3 NASB) He did this to show them, and all who would follow, that God is our Source — not money or reserves of food. He provides for our needs. The instructions Jesus gave illustrated that even when He would no longer be physically present, His followers would never be “on their own.” God always watches over us. In Luke 22, not long before His crucifixion, Jesus reminded His disciples of that experience. He wanted them to draw on that memory so that they would always see God as their Provider. But as they were about to set out on missionary journeys that would transform the world, He told them to take some things with them, including money. That fits with what they had seen Him do. During the three years of Jesus’ ministry, the group had a treasurer and a moneybag. That would be the normal way of doing things. “He said to them, ‘When I sent you out without purse and bag and sandals, you did not lack anything, did you?’ And they said, ‘No, nothing.’ And He said to them, ‘But now, let him who has a purse take it along, likewise also a bag, and let him who has no sword sell his robe and buy one.’” (Luke 22:35-36 NASB Jesus did not advocate violence, but He told them to take a sword on their journeys. He said if they didn’t have a sword, they should sell something as essential as a robe in order to buy one. Self-defense is implicit in this instruction. There are no limits on God’s ability. He can just do things for us. After Philip baptized the Ethiopian eunuch in Acts 8, it says, “the Spirit of the Lord snatched Philip away; and the eunuch saw him no more, but went on his way rejoicing. But Philip found himself at Azotus.” (Acts 8:39-40 NASB) That was a transportation miracle. But in every other case we know of, the disciples of Jesus went place to place in a very natural, human way. They walked. God has the ability to snatch us up and take us where He wants, but His usual method is to let us do the things we can. God uses even our most basic abilities, like walking. He wants us to participate where we can —including in our own protection. A new editorial in Rolling Stone magazine argues that we should not be allowed that right. On June 13th, they ran an editorial calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment. Apparently the United Nations agrees. U.N. human rights commissioner Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein asked, “How many more mass killings of school-children, of co-workers, of African-American churchgoers, how many more individual shootings of talented musicians like Christina Grimmie, or politicians like Gabrielle Giffords, will it take before the United States adopts robust gun regulation?” But here’s the problem. If we must depend only on police and other government agencies to defend us, then almost everything and everyone will be a soft target. NFL football games won’t be, but your kid’s soccer game will. Hollywood studios will remain hard targets, but the local multiplex will be a soft target — as will your local grocery store, school, church, and park. But if people who pass a certain level of screening and testing are allowed the means to defend themselves, they will also defend the people around them — hardening targets everywhere. In all of this, we have to remember that God remains the ultimate defense. We may water the garden, but only God can make vegetables grow. It’s the same with defense. Psalms 33 says, “The king is not saved by a mighty army; A warrior is not delivered by great strength. A horse is a false hope for victory; Nor does it deliver anyone by its great strength. Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, On those who hope for His lovingkindness, To deliver their soul from death, And to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield.” (Psalms 33:16-20 NASB) While those words give me comfort as an individual, they give me grave concern for my country. The United States of America has the strongest, most powerful military in the history of the world by far. But that alone is not enough. If we as a nation do not turn to God for deliverance, the United States itself will soon become a “soft target.”

DR Congo warlord Bemba jailed over war crimes

2 hours ago

Congolese ex-rebel leader Jean-Pierre Bemba has been jailed for 18 years following a landmark conviction at the International Criminal Court (ICC) for war crimes and sexual violence. Bemba, a former vice-president of DR Congo, was convicted in March of crimes committed in the neighbouring Central African Republic (CAR) in 2002-2003. He was accused of failing to stop his rebels from killing and raping people. Bemba's lawyers have already said they will appeal against his conviction. Judges announced sentences of between 16 and 18 years for five counts of rape, murder and pillaging, with the jail terms running concurrently. The eight years Bemba has already spent in custody will be deducted from his term. Africa Live: BBC news updates from across the continent His conviction was the first time the ICC had focused on rape as a weapon of war, and the first time a suspect had been convicted for crimes committed by others under his command. Passing sentence at the ICC in The Hague, Judge Sylvia Steiner said Bemba had failed to exercise control over his private militia sent into CAR, where they carried out "sadistic" rapes, murders and pillaging of "particular cruelty". The BBC's Anna Holligan, who is in The Hague, says two key issues remain - where Bemba will serve his sentence and the amount of compensation to be awarded to his victims. A well-connected businessman and the son of prominent Congolese businessman Bemba Saolona

2003: Becomes vice-president under peace deal

2006: Loses run-off election to President Joseph Kabila but gets most votes in western DR Congo, including Kinshasa

2007: Flees to Belgium after clashes in Kinshasa

2008: Arrested in Brussels and handed over to ICC

2010: Trial begins

2016: Found guilty of war crimes and crimes against humanity

Bemba was "extremely disappointed" with the sentence, his lawyer, Kate Gibson, told AFP news agency. "Today's sentence is by no means the end of the road for Mr Bemba, it merely signals that we are now moving to the next phase of the process which is the appeal," she said. In 2002 Bemba had sent more than 1,000 fighters to the CAR to help then president Ange Felix Patasse put down an attempted coup. The court heard that his troops committed acts of extreme violence against civilians - crimes which the judge said Bemba was made aware of but did nothing to stop. He had led the MLC (Movement for the Liberation of Congo) rebel group during DR Congo's brutal civil war and after a 2003 peace deal he laid down his arms and joined an interim government. Human Rights Watch (HRW) said the sentence offered "a measure of justice" for the victims. "Other commanders should take notice that they, too, can be held accountable for rapes and other serious abuses committed by troops under their control," said Geraldine Mattioli-Zeltner, HRW's international justice advocacy director. The MLC is now a major opposition party in DR Congo and Secretary General Eve Bazaiba criticised the ICC ruling and sentence. "We will never cease denouncing the selective justice of the ICC," she told supporters in the capital Kinshasa.

FBI Changes 'Allah' to 'God' in Orlando Shooter Transcript

By Tyler O'Neil June 20, 2016

When Omar Mateen called 911 during his shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, the man pledged allegiance to the Islamic State (ISIS) and repeated the common Islamic phrase "Allah the merciful," but those phrases did not appear in the transcript of the call published by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on Monday morning. On Sunday, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, the head of the Justice Department, explicitly said the FBI, which is under her jurisdiction, would doctor the text of the transcripts to remove the Islamic State. But more telling is what she did not say -- not only were the mentions of ISIS taken out, but the word "Allah" was altered to read "God" instead.

DOJ to Release Orlando Shooters's 911 Call But Redact ISIS Pledge, Religious References

Here is a sample of the transcription:

Orlando Police Dispatcher (OD)

Shooter (OM)

OD: Emergency 911, this is being recorded.

OM: In the name of God the Merciful, the beneficial [in Arabic]

OD: What?

OM: Praise be to God, and prayers as well as peace be upon the prophet of God [in Arabic]. I let you know, I'm in Orlando and I did the shootings.

OD: What's your name?

OM: My name is I pledge allegiance to [omitted].

OD: OK, What's your name?

OM: I pledge allegiance to [omitted] may God protect him [in Arabic], on behalf of [omitted]. This is quite a revealing alteration. When Chuck Todd asked Lynch what was going to be left out, she responded, "What we're not going to do is further proclaim this man's pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups and further his propaganda." She later said this doctoring was done to "avoid revictimizing those who went through this horror." How does she explain the alteration of the name "Allah"? Would it be "revictimizing" survivors to mention the Islamic name of God? Would it be cow-towing to Mateen's "propaganda"? Or maybe it would suggest the bare obvious fact that Omar Mateen did the evils that he did in the name of Islam and the Muslim deity, whose name is Allah. You could argue that the FBI was merely translating the Arabic word for "God" into the English word for "God," but that would be like translating the Christian "God" into "Krishna" or the Hebrew "G-d" into "Jupiter." It is not a pure translation, because the different names have different meanings, even in the same language. Why Speaking the Truth About Islamic Terrorism Matters No, they translated "Allah" into "God" in order to silence the unavoidable truth -- that the horrid murders in Orlando were part of radical Islamic terror, not just some lone wolf totally unconnected to that specific religion. Ironically, this strategy is like to reinforce the impact of ISIS, not downplay the organization. President Obama's now-explicitly-stated policy is refusing to use the words "radical Islamic terror" as if it were the ideology-that-must-not-be-named.

Gaza offshore island project gaining steam, says intelligence minister

In exclusive meeting on Monday, Israel Katz discusses the details of the project that his ministry estimates will cost $5 billion. A proposal to provide the Gaza Strip with an outlet to the rest of the world through a man-made island could soon become a reality, Intelligence and Transportation Minister Israel Katz said Monday. Although the idea of building this artificial island has been floating around for years, real headway has only been made in the recent months, according to Katz, who estimates the project will cost some $5 billion. The project would include a 5 km. bridge from the Gaza Strip through Israeli waters and into the planned 8 sq. km. chunk of land, which likely would have a marine port and, eventually, an airport, in addition to a hotel and small port for yachts. Hamas has said that among its conditions for a long-term truce with Israel are the reopening of the Strip’s Yasser Arafat Airport and construction of a new seaport. Such an option on existing Gaza land, Katz said, would put Israel’s security at risk and allow Hamas to misuse funds allocated for its construction. The alternative, if the island is not built, Katz said, is for Israel to keep increasing – and paying for – the amount of water, electricity, food and other goods supplied to Gaza. According to Katz, the process is still being deliberated by officials who are mainly trying to decide how exactly Israel would be involved in maintaining security at a port that would be internationally funded and secured. The minister said the project would not be built or funded by Israel in any way. Rather, he said, the initiative is more of a statement of support were this plan come to fruition and Israel would allow international entities to enter Israeli waters in order to carry out construction. Katz acknowledged that the island would not necessarily put an end to weapon smuggling and rocket firings at Israel, but would help the populace to become less radical as it receives a better standard of living and the possibility of traveling and commerce with the rest of the world without Israeli involvement. The project, which Katz said has the support of a number of high-profile global figures including Tony Blair, is one of a number of regional-cooperation projects, using the oft-stated slogan of “doing what we can wherever it’s possible” and finding areas in which regional “frenemies” can find issues on which to cooperate. In May, Katz announced an initiative that would transfer Turkish goods to Jordan and onward to the rest of the region through Israel via a train route from the Port of Haifa to Beit She’an, which is a 15-minute drive from the Sheikh Hussein Border Crossing into Jordan.

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas Retiring?

06-20-2016 CBN News

Court watchers say U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is considering retirement folllowing the presidential election in November, according to the Washington Examiner. Thomas is a consistent conservative vote on the high court. President George H.W. Bush appointed him, and he endured a tough Senate confirmation before being approved. Court watchers say the justice has been contemplating retirement for some time and never considered staying until he died. He enjoys vacationing in the summer with his wife in his RV, according to the report. Meanwhile, Thomas' wife, Ginni, wrote on Facebook that the reports saying her husband may retire are false. "IT. IS. BOGUS!" she exclaimed in all caps. "For all those who are contacting me about the possibility of my husband retiring, I say -- unsubscribe from those false news sources and carry on with your busy lives," she wrote. If Thomas does retire, that could dramatically affect the leaning of the Supreme Court. The next president is believed to immediately appoint someone to fill the vacancy left by conservative Justice Antonin Scalia, who passed away in February. A court that is currently divided would become 5-4. If Thomas retires, the one-vote edge would possibly continue for conservatives if Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump becomes president. If Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton takes the Oval Office, then she would have the opportunity to replace two Republican seats, which would afford liberal justices a 6-3 majority. The Washington Examiner reports that conservatives are concerned that the liberal majority even could become 7-2 if Republican Justice Anthony Kennedy steps down. Kennedy, who is a swing vote, will turn 80 next year. The Washington Examiner also reported that if Clinton becomes president, the majority liberal court that she would help appoint could keep their positions until at least 2050. However, liberal justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer are also reaching the average age when a justice retires.

Eric Metaxas: America Is Committing 'Suicide' by Turning Away From It's Divine Calling

By Samuel Smith , CP Reporter June 20, 2016|2:27 pm

Eric Metaxas speaking at the In Defense of Christians Inaugural Summit, Washington, D.C, Sept. 11, 2014. New York Times best-selling author and radio host Eric Metaxas is warning that the United States is in danger of becoming "America in name only" if Americans don't stand up to protect the liberties and values of self governance that made the nation a blessing to the entire world. In a new book released last week titled If You Can Keep It: The Forgotten Promise of American Liberty, the 53-year-old Metaxas explains that the American republic was created by the nation's Founding Fathers to be shared with the entire world. But, Metaxas stresses that Americans today have become too complacent with their freedoms and are too willing to give up their ability to govern themselves. He argues that complacency displayed today towards the rights and responsibilities of Americans to hold their governments accountable will cause America, as the world knows it, to perish. "We have to live our lives in this nation in such a way that we are an example to the whole world and they want to have what we have," Metaxas told The Christian Post in an interview last Friday. "Christian faith is at the heart of that idea, it wasn't just a secular idea about a government, it was about a community that had never been tried before where people would live in harmony." "These were ideas that were very new at the time and we forget what a wild and unprecedented idea that self government was when we began this country in 1776," Metaxas said. "We have lost a proper reverence for it. It is a crazy, wild idea that was almost destined to fail unless everything went right. We shouldn't take it for granted." As the secularization of the American society over the last 40-plus years has resulted in crackdowns on religious freedom and limits on faith in the public square, Metaxas asserts that the Founding Fathers understood that faith and virtue are what enable freedom and self governance to flourish. Metaxas relies on the concept known as the Golden Triangle, which he borrowed from British author and social critic Os Guinness, to prove his point. The Golden Triangle is the idea that freedom requires virtue, virtue requires faith and faith requires freedom. "All of the founders, including the ones we think of as somewhat secular — Franklin and Jefferson — knew that a robust expression of Christian faith was at the very heart of the success of the American experiment," Metaxas told CP. "There was no doubt in the minds of any of them that virtue and faith were utterly crucial to the success of this experiment in self government and true liberty for all. The extent that we have forgotten that and utterly pushed that away, we have destroyed the very thing that will allow us to continue to be who we have been and to be better than who we have been. That's a vital part of what we have to relearn." Metaxas writes that the title of the book is a reference to words spoken by Benjamin Franklin when he was asked while leaving the Constitutional Convention whether or not America was to be a monarchy or republic. Franklin's response was, "A republic, if you can keep it." etc. and the news story continues.

If You Value Life, Wake Up!

By Paul Craig Roberts PaulCraigRoberts.org June 21, 2016

Do you remember how close we came to Armageddon in the early 1960s when Washington put nuclear missiles in Turkey on the Soviet Union’s border and the Soviets responded by putting nuclear missiles in Cuba? Fortunately, at that time, we had an intelligent president instead of a cipher. President John F. Kennedy pulled us back from the brink and was assassinated by his own government for his service to humanity. For a number of years, I have been warning that the recklessness of a half century ago has reappeared in spades. The crazed, insane, Nazified, neoconized government in Washington and Washington’s despicable European vassal states, especially the UK, Germany, and France, are driving the world to extinction in a nuclear war. See, for example here. This is the most obvious fact of our time. Yet only the Russian government addresses Washington’s threat to life on earth. Why is this? Why was there no debate—or even mention—in the presidential nomination primaries of the road to nuclear war on which Washington has the world? Washington is putting its nuclear missiles on Russia’s borders, conducting war games on Russia’s borders, and stationing its Navy off Russia’s coasts in the Black and Baltic seas. To cover up its reckless, irresponsible aggression toward a nuclear power, Washington accuses Russia of aggression.

To cover up its reckless, irresponsible aggression toward a nuclear power, Washington accuses Russia of aggression. The presstitute media—the New York Times, the Washington Post, Fox “News,” CNN, and the rest of the despicable whores repeat the lie over and over until the Western populations are brainwashed. Do you suppose the Russians, who know what is happening, are going to just sit there until they are so completely surrounded by nuclear missiles that they have to surrender? Unless you believe this, you had best get busy saving your life and the life of our planet. Do not expect political leaders to do this for you. There are no political leaders in public office anywhere in the West, only paid puppets of powerful interests groups. Do not expect experts, most of whom are dependent on these same interest groups, to bring influence to bear on government and media. There is no one but us.

The GOP “Dump Trump” Movement Is Gaining Momentum

Dave Hodges

Paul Ryan is doing his best to help Hillary Clinton defeat Donald Trump. In fact, with encouragement from Ryan, it is becoming a distinct possibility that Trump may not be the nominee when the GOP convention concludes next month. There is no way that the establishment and their minions can afford to have a Trump Presidency. This means that in order to dump Trump, the globalists must create a world where up is down and down is up, white is black and black is white. Paul Ryan, much to the detriment of the American people, is where is he is at today because he was willing to ignore the following as if they did not exist: The free trade agreements which have caused the loss of millions of American jobs so that manufacturers could send millions of jobs offshore to cheap foreign labor markets and then turn around and ship these products back into the United States tax free. Trump has pledged to stop this. Ignore the illegal alien crisis which continues to undercut the wages of the working class, thus leading to much lower salaries and higher unemployment for American workers. Support Obamacare and its provision which forces employers to purchase Obamacare medical insurance for its full time employees. This has greatly added to the demise of small businesses. The undermining of American national security through the admission of UNSCREENED Muslims to America. Supporting former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton led State Department policy which protects certain Mosques and Muslims with extreme terrorist ties such as what we saw with Omar Mateen. Ryan is complicit in allowing the same chaos that is destroying Europe with UNSCREENED Muslim immigration, to come to America and destroy this country. His failure to oppose should be construed as tacit support. This attitude has given rise to the attitude that it is acceptable for these Refugee/Resettlement immigrants to support Sharia Law over our Constitutional law. Trump is on the record as opposing each and everyone of the above policies which are destroying America. Most Americans support Trump in this endeavor of putting America first and Making America Great Again! However, most of Congress is on the take and avail themselves to what should be illegal bribery through corporate campaign contributions. In order to keep the gravy train rolling, politicians, like Paul Ryan, are willing forsake their Constitutional oath and oppose Trump’s pro-Constitutional stand on these issues. In fact, Ryan is of such low moral character that he is even willing to destroy the GOP in order to preserve the criminal status quo, while he receives blood money from the corporations. At the end of the day Paul Ryan is partnered with Obama in depriving Americans of their Constitutional liberties and standard of living. In fact, it can now be accurately said that the Speaker of the House supports Democrat and sociopath, Hillary Clinton, in her bid for President over the will of the rank and file of the GOP. Paul Ryan is every bit of a traitor to the American people as are Obama and Clinton. The GOP Is Planning to Dump Trump at the Convention Despite the Will of the People romney ryan 2016 Their is yet another reason that Ryan would forsake the will of the people and work towards the defeat of the people’s choice, Donald Trump. Simply put, Paul Ryan wants to either run for President against Clinton, or at least be on the ticket. This is an irrefutable fact as we consider the following evidence which stands in support of this notion. From the Federal Election Commission website: FEC FORM 1

Title: Form 1 for

I do not see the impotent Romney running for President again. However, I do see Paul Ryan being drafted at the GOP convention as he has filed the same paperwork in order to run as Vice-President. Now that Ryan is registered, he, too, can run for President. This has always been the globalists Plan B. The forces have aligned and in a nonviolent confiscation of the nomination process, the Republicans will ignore the will of the people. The GOP Dump Trump Movement From The Economic Collapse: …Over the past couple of days, the Washington Post, CNN and a whole host of other mainstream news outlets have been reporting on a new “last-ditch effort” that has been launched by Republican operatives to get the Republican convention Rules Committee to unbind all of the delegates and allow them to vote however they want. As you will see below, they can do this, and if they get enough votes they will do it. This current effort is different from what we have seen so far during this campaign season, because it is actually being organized by the delegates themselves. The following comes from the Washington Post… …This movement is being spearheaded by a delegate from Colorado named Kendal Unruh. She is actually a key member of the Republican convention Rules Committee… As Fox News explained, there are basically two courses of action… To prevail, Unruh needs a majority of the 112 members of the convention rules committee, which has two delegates from each state and territory. Then, a majority of the full convention’s 2,472 delegates would have to approve. There’s a Plan B. If Unruh can win over one-fourth support from the rules committee — just 29 delegates — the full convention must vote on her proposal. So far she’s got around 10 supporters… …On Thursday night, Unruh was on a conference call that included at least 30 delegates from 15 different states, and the Washington Post says that regional coordinators for this effort have been recruited “in Arizona, Iowa, Louisiana, Washington and other states…” One individual that took part in this conference call on Thursday night told CNN that calls are pouring in from people all over the country that want to be part of this movement…” I tip my hat to Michael Snyder for uncovering much of this and doing a masterful job of connecting the dots. I would like to ask Unruh, two questions: What bribes have the corporations offered to you? Have you even considered the impact on your children and the rest of the young people in America if your plan succeeds? Because, if Unruh(ly) is successful, Hillary will surely be elected and our children will be condemned to living in a hell hole dominated by free trade agreements, unbridled illegal immigration, the imposition of Sharia Law, the TPP, miserable poverty and the loss of all civil liberties. GOP members like Unruh and Ryan are no better than Clinton. These claims by the Washington Post are bolstered by the fact the Republican Arizona Governor, Doug Ducey, a globalist, was an unexpected no-show at the Trump rally in Phoenix last Saturday. Conclusion As distasteful as the “stop Trump” movement presented here may appear to be, the movement is tame in comparison to what could lie ahead for the American people should Trump secure the nomination. Then it will be no longer a case of stopping Trump. It will be a case of stopping the newly awakened American people. Things could get very, very ugly. America, you living in a period of history that will undoubtedly shape the country and the world for generations to come, and right now it looks like the bad guys are winning hands down. If the upcoming election is to feature some combination of Romney and/or Ryan vs. Hillary Clinton, we might as well have Hitler vs. Stalin in 2016. The implications are obvious and will explored in detail in an upcoming article.

Hillary Clinton Absolutely Ripped To Shreds!

Based On This Amazing, Must-Watch Video, 'The Party Has Just Begun'

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

In the only video below we hear one of the most awe-inspiring speeches that we have heard in a very long time and are given a nearly endless list of why 2016 is the most important election in possibly the history of our fledgling Republic and also witness what may soon be coming about within the general election as Donald Trump's 'warm-up act', Stephen Miller, absolutely decimates Hillary Clinton, ripping her and the never-ending corruption surrounding her to shreds. As if Clinton needed any help what-so-ever in destroying herself after being outed for taking millions of dollars from countries that outright slaughter gays and lesbians, showing us once again what a total hypocrite she is, Miller shows us why the 2016 general election may soon turn into an outright 'political bloodbath' by absolutely ripping into Hitlery and the corruption that surrounds her, proving to us she should be in prison and not running for the highest office in the land. This video also proves to us why America is absolutely doomed if she is somehow (s) elected in November, proving to us here at ANP why America is destined for total destruction if it allows such incredible corruption to continue to enslave and destroy what much of the planet once looked at as the greatest nation on Earth. "It's crucially important that every morning we wake up we're cognizant of just how historic and how rare this opportunity really is because folks, it's not going to come again. I mean, we have been betrayed and let down by politicians year after year after year after year after year." Miller does not hold back on the Clinton crime family: "Our political system sells favors to the highest bidder and no one in this country has done more to sell out our government to the highest bidder than Hillary Rodham Clinton." While putting in 'a plug' for Bernie Sanders, Miller then slams Hitlery again: "In one of the great ironies of this race is that in the year of Bernie Sanders in the Democratic Party, because of the super-delegates they went ahead and nominated the FACE OF SPECIAL INTEREST CORRUPTION in America...nobody has taken more money from special interests in return for more favors than Hillary Clinton". Why would Hitlery take MILLIONS OF DOLLARS from some of the most repressive and brutal regimes in the world; from regimes that make it public policy to EXECUTE gays and lesbians? Why would Hitlery do so and then pretend to be the friend of gays and lesbians? Isn't it time that Americans 'awaken en masse' to the absolute barbaric and hypocritical policies that Hitlery and the Clinton Foundation engage in, policies that HURT all Americans, not just gays and lesbians? We also have proved to you that Hitlery's State Department had ties to the father of Orlando shooter Omar Mateen. Why would Hitlery seemingly WANT gays and lesbians executed and slaughtered by accepting 'dirty money' from nations that do so? Having now been proven as taking money from terroristic governments around the world, some of the most brutal worldwide, should Hitlery even be allowed by law to run for president or any other political office in America? The scandals that surround her are legendary. Republished below is a portion of an email that ANP recently received: For word from the Cornell Law Library and from the Government Publishing Dept. Former United States Attorney General Michael Mukasey tells MSNBC that not only is Hillary Clinton's private email server illegal, it "disqualifies" her from holding any federal office. Such as, say, President of the United States. Very specifically points to one federal law, Title 18. Section 2071. For those of us who do not have United States Code committed to memory, here's what it says: "(a) Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both. (b) Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. As used in this subsection, the term "office" does not include the office held by any person as a retired officer of the Armed Forces of the United States." Yes, it explicitly states "shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States." Shouldn't voters know that? The media won't tell them. So it's up to us. Can you help hold Hillary accountable? Pass this on, please. Now !! Does anyone believe that this will make a difference ?? Now if Hillary is allowed to run for a office of any kind, it will show us that the Washington D.C. establishment is so much more corrupt than we thought. Whether or not Hitlery is actually prevented from being president or not based upon the information above it's quite clear, America has never been as absolutely corrupted as we are right now. Miller absolutely lambasts 'the evil hypocrite' and how far America has already fallen under her 'guidance' in this video, one that we hope you help go viral as it could be the next step in bringing down the Clinton political regime for once and for all-time, and for the best for America.

Obama's EPA caught covering up high heavy metals pollution across U.S. cities as federal government wages multi-faceted WAR against its own citizens

Tuesday, June 21, 2016 by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

(NaturalNews) Our citizen-powered EPA Watch program has now resulted in the open source publishing of heavy metals contamination tests of 230 municipal water samples across America. The results show that two to three per cent of the U.S. water is highly contaminated with toxic heavy metals, poisoning an estimated 10 million Americans with brain-damaging contaminants that surpass EPA limits. Yet the EPA has not alerted Americans to these toxic heavy metals in their water. Just as in the case of Flint, Michigan, the EPA is systematically covering up irrefutable scientific evidence of heavy metals water contamination across America. To discover all this, Natural News volunteers collected water samples from over 230 municipal water sources across America and sent them to my laboratory for testing. My lab, known as CWC Labs, is an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) laboratory with exhaustive expertise in heavy metals analysis. Through meticulous testing of the water samples, we scientifically documented a disturbing pattern of heavy metals water data that's now available to the public. Click here to view the data now at the Natural Science Journal, sorted by zip code. Data points shown in YELLOW indicate 50% or more of the EPA's limit. RED indicates concentrations that exceed EPA limits. Two to three per cent of U.S. municipal water systems are heavily contaminated with copper, arsenic or lead Our data show that two to three per cent of municipal water systems are heavily contaminated with toxic heavy metals. This means as many as 10 million Americans may be consuming heavily contaminated water right now. Yet Obama's EPA -- which also engaged in criminal cover-ups of glyphosate contamination of the food supply -- hasn't said a word about this to anyone. In Flint, Michigan, three local water officials were charged with felony crimes for committing deliberate scientific fraud to hide lead contamination from the public. Yet as this exclusive Natural News investigation reveals, the EPA is engaged in a far wider conspiracy of silence about the heavy pollution of municipal water supplies all across America. Somehow, nobody from the EPA ever gets charged with a crime or goes to prison... is anyone surprised? You'll also notice that the EPA never dares publish raw, unfiltered heavy metals data on U.S. water systems. Instead, just like municipal water quality bureaucrats do, they cherry pick the results they want to "count" while ignoring all the data that show high heavy metals. America is being systematically poisoned, deceived and destroyed by a deliberate enemy force occupying the highest levels of government As a result, the entire nation of America is being systematically lied to about water quality by a crooked, corrupt EPA that has abandoned real science, operating under the deceptive, dishonest Obama regime that also excuses radical Islamic terrorism on U.S. soil. What's next... will Obama enable and then apologize for Islamic radicals poisoning the water supply with deadly radioactive weapons of mass destruction while the EPA looks the other way? Given recent events, it no longer sounds like a kooky conspiracy theory, does it? Suddenly we're all living in an America where our own federal government is actively conspiring against the citizens on a daily basis, supporting enemies who attack us, covering up mass heavy metals poisoning and excusing acts of terrorism that are taking place right in our own communities. Suddenly, Americans are waking up to find that they are now the "enemies" of their own government... a government now run by obvious traitors and criminals in positions of high power who seem determined to destroy this once great nation by any means possible: Poisoning the water, gutting the economy, terrorizing our citizens, welcoming a land invasion of illegals carrying infectious disease, destroying our children with toxic chemicals in deadly vaccines and stripping away our rights and freedoms while constructing a totalitarian surveillance state that offers only suffocation, not security. There is a war on America, and it is being waged by traitors who now occupy the highest offices of the land. The heavy metals poisoning of the water supply is just one small part of this war that's intended to decimate America by attacking the brain function of its citizens; other weapons of mass chemical destruction also include antidepressant drugs, fluoride chemicals in the water supply, glyphosate weed killer in the food supply and hormone disruptors that permeate packaged foods. We are all being deliberate poisoned while the obedient sheeple worship basketball on TV and eat themselves to death with MSG-laced GMO junk foods. Is it any wonder this nation now seems to have passed the tipping point of sanity and descended into a real-world Idiocracy? It is no coincidence that lead and copper -- the two most prominent heavy metals we found in municipal water samples -- both promote cognitive decline, confusion and psychosis. This is precisely the kind of mass confusion (and mental illness) desired by irrational, insane pushers of political criminality who are trying to get the traitor-in-chief Hillary Clinton elected to office. After all, if they can just keep up the deliberate destruction for four more years, there might be nobody left who's capable of fighting back against overarching tyranny... and from that point forward, it all descends into a corporate-government system of runaway fascism, secret police and total censorship of natural medicine, home gardening, home schooling, rainwater collection, self-reliance and even Christianity itself. If Clinton gets elected to office, government medical enforcers will be shooting up your children with vaccines at gunpoint, criminalizing naturopathic medicine, imprisoning herbalists and forcing everyone to eat GMOs. The "good" news in all this is that lead in the water will then be the least of your concerns. And you'll probably be dead anyway, because a totalitarian Clinton regime will be rounding up all independent thinkers and executing them en masse (a la the "cultural revolution" of communist China) in the name of "tolerance."

Hospital Drops Abortionist After Demonic Rant Saying He Loves Killing Babies

National Steven Ertelt, Micaiah Bilger Jun 20, 2016 | 1:37PM San Diego, CA

Last week, LifeNews reported on how a California pro-lifer captured his disturbing exchange with a notorious San Diego abortionist on video. Now, a local hospital has terminated its relationship with the abortion practitioner. Abortionist Robert Santella has a bad reputation with his patients, having faced several disciplinary measures from the California Medical Board. He also has been accused of injuring several patients in botched abortions. Recently, pro-life advocate Zephaniah Mel stood outside Santella’s Family Planning Associates abortion clinic in San Diego and was approached by Santella. The 72-year-old abortionist’s demeanor and remarks are extremely disturbing. At one point, Santella, in a demonic rant, told Mel that he “loves” aborting babies. Now, the pro-life group Operation Rescue says Santella has been dropped by a local hospital: Allyson Smith was appalled by the recent video showing Robert Santella, an abortionist with the Family Planning Associates abortion facility in San Diego, growling in a demonic “freak-out” at another pro-life activist. Smith noticed that during his rant, Santella wore an identification badge from Sharp Healthcare, a group of hospitals throughout San Diego County. Due to her long-time involvement in the pro-life movement, Smith knew exactly what to do. She posted to her Facebook page that she contacted Sharp Healthcare via e-mail on the morning of June 17. Hi there, I would like to bring this video to your attention. The crazed doctor in this video is Robert Santella, who performs abortions at Family Planning Associates on Miramar Road. You’ll notice he is wearing a Sharp Healthcare ID tag. A quick Internet search reveals that he is affiliated with Grossmont Hospital. Why is this “doctor” allowed to be affiliated with Grossmont Hospital? He is nuts and should be fired. What will you do about him? Thanks. Keep up with the latest pro-life news and information on Twitter. Soon, she received a reply from Sharp’s Grossmont Hospital: Hi Allyson: Thank you for your message. We appreciate your concerns regarding this physician, and we can assure you that he is no longer affiliated with any of our hospitals, he is not employed by our medical groups, and he does not practice or have admitting privileges at any of our facilities. We are currently looking into other aspects of this matter, and we will provide updates as we have more information “This is a great example of how much can be accomplished with just a little smartly directed effort,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, which protested Santella regularly in the 1990s and early 2000s before relocating to Kansas. “Allyson’s letter will probably save a lot women from being subjected to Santella’s unstable behavior.” Santella allegedly botched at least two women’s abortions in 2015 alone, LifeNews reported. Pro-lifers who witnessed one of the incidents said one woman’s mother called 911 for her daughter after Santella and his staff refused to. Santella also has a bad reputation with the California Medical Board and has faced disciplinary measures on several occasions. The medical board also is reviewing a new case alleging that Santella neglected his treatment of five patients, according to the report. “If only the California Medical Board had taken stronger measures with Santella when he showed incompetence in 1984 and 2000, a lot of human misery could have been avoided,” said Newman. “Some people are not fit to practice medicine, and Robert Santella is among them. We pray the Medical Board will take sterner measures to limit his options so he will be forced to look for another line of work. We also pray he gets the spiritual and mental health assistance he obviously requires.”

Unearthed letters cast doubt on Obama's family story

Posted By Jerome R. Corsi On 06/20/2016 @ 8:01 pm In Front Page,Politics,U.S. Barack Obama Sr.

NEW YORK – In newly discovered letters, President Obama’s Kenyan father made no mention of his son, raising further doubt about the personal narrative that helped put Obama on a rapid path to the White House. The New York Times published six letters from a collection of 24 written by Barack Hussein Obama Sr. that were discovered recently in an archives box at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem. The letters dated after Feb. 2, 1961 – the earliest date attributed to the Kenyan’s marriage to Ann Dunham – made no mention of Dunham or their son, the future president, which would have been to his advantage in his desperate effort, as the letters show, to obtain funding for his studies. Barack Obama Jr.’s path to the White House began when he famously introduced himself to the world at the Democratic National Convention in 2004 as the product of an “improbable love” between a Kansas girl and a Kenyan goat herder. Elsewhere, Obama has insisted that the love endured even when his father had to leave a wife and a 2-year-old child behind to pursue dreams at Harvard. In his autobiography, Obama indicated that if only Harvard would have offered enough money to support all three of them, as another school did, they could have stayed together. But the newly discovered letters confirm WND’s reporting that Obama Sr. never lived with Dunham and she left Hawaii with her son only weeks after he was born. Is America headed toward death or rebirth? A former House majority calls America to “Revival! Revolution! Rebirth!” in a new book debuting Tuesday! Barack Obama Jr. said in his autobiography “Dreams from My Father” that the details of the marriage between his father and Dunham remained murky. Various biographies of Dunham, meanwhile, suggest the two were married only after she became pregnant, with Obama in “Dreams” claiming the two were married on an unspecified date in May 1960. In his 2012 book “Barack Obama: The Story,” author David Maraniss claims the Kenyan married Dunham in Maui on Feb. 2, 1961, yet no official marriage certificate has ever surfaced. Financial struggle The letters show that the senior Obama struggled financially to get to Hawaii, where he eventually enrolled at the University of Hawaii in 1959. And letters written in 1961 and 1962 made clear he experienced similar difficulties in his attempt to get to Cambridge, Massachusetts, to begin graduate work at Harvard University. Barack Obama Sr. addressed most of the six letters to his primary financial benefactor in the United States, John Livingstone, a staff assistant at the Washington-based Institute of American-African Relations. In a May 18, 1959, “Application for Financial Assistance” produced by African-American Institute Inc. – a group with the same address listed for John Livingstone – the Kenyan indicated he was married, naming as his wife Kesia Aoko. Obama Sr. abandoned Aoko in Kenya when he left for Hawaii in 1959. On the application, he also indicated he had been accepted at the University of Hawaii to study applied science in the fields of civil engineering and architecture. But he noted that he had not been offered a scholarship. What do YOU think? Has Obama been honest about his family history? Sound off in today’s WND Poll! The Kenyan asked the African American Institute for a grant of $1,300, with $500 for maintenance and $800 for transportation. He listed he had $1,100 available from private funds and a $400 grant from the Laubach Literary Mission Fund, an affiliated group of the Laubach Institute. The institute was known in that era to support the idea of a socialist world without borders. It also showed up listed as a sponsor in the Kenyan’s INS immigration documents. No mention of Dunham On Feb. 8, 1961, some five days after Maraniss claims Obama Sr. married Dunham, Obama wrote to Gordon Hagberg, the director of the African American Institute, at a DuPont Circle address in Washington different from Livingston’s address. In the letter, the Kenyan thanked the African American Institute for the $500 “received for the second semester” and the $500 “received for last semester.” The letter, applying for a scholarship in 1961 discussed in detail Obama’s transcript showing he was carrying a 3.7 grade point average, having just completed seven courses for 21 credit hours, receiving four grades of “A” and two grades of “B.” But the letter, focused entirely on academic considerations, made no mention that he had married a Hawaii woman. It’s a fact he could have referenced to obtain more funding, arguing he had taken upon himself the responsibilities of a student wife and possibly future children. On April 1, 1961, Lee E. Winters Jr., an assistant professor of English at the University of Hawaii, wrote Hagberg a letter endorsing Obama Sr. for a continuing 1961 scholarship. “Beyond purely academic pursuits, Mr. Obama has done an exemplary job of getting along with people and finding out about the local community and its varied nationalities,” Winters wrote, without any mention that Obama had done so well that he had just married a U.S. national residing in Hawaii. “The only serious problem that Mr. Obama has faced in his life here has been financial,” Winters continued. “The cost of living in the Islands is fantastically high, and I sympathize with anyone who has brought any money here from elsewhere, as its purchasing power being so drastically decreased.” ‘Airfare to Harvard is $400’ On June 13, 1962, when his son Barack Obama would have been some eight months old, the Kenyan penned a handwritten letter to Robert L. Sherman, a staff associate of the African American Institute in New York City. In that letter, Obama Sr. makes it clear he had been accepted at Harvard Education, but he had no means to pay for the transportation to get there. “I am graduating here [in Hawaii] on the 17th of this month,” Obama wrote. “I am intending to leave here on the 21st of this month, which means that I have only one week in which to find the money for travel. I am desperate and I shall, therefore, be most obliged if you will let me know what became of the application and whether I am going to get any assistance.” He continued, again without mentioning Dunham or the possibility he might get a transportation loan from Dunham’s parents, both of whom were supposedly gainfully employed at that time. “I am desperate and I have no transportation money,” Obama continued, repeating the urgency of his request. “Unless I get some assistance I will be stranded here. Please let me know about this before the 20th of this month if you can. The fare from here to Harvard is about $400.” While mentioning he also needed money for living expenses once he got there, given that the scholarship he was awarded by Harvard covered only tuition, Obama concluded the letter by repeating the urgency of his request for $400 airfare. “I hope to hear from you very soon, at least about the transportation fare, since I have only one week remaining,” Obama said in closing. “We can talk about my application for assistance while at Harvard when I get there, if not now. This is very urgent.” ‘A hamburger is 50 cents’ Then, on Nov. 28, 1962, when his son in Hawaii would have been some 15 months old, Obama Sr. typed a letter to Robert Sherman, addressed as the director of the Student Assistance Program at the Phelps Stokes Fund in New York City. The letter was sent from Obama’s address on Irving Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts. “The Spring term ends on the 4th of February,” Obama wrote. “So far my funds have been running very fast since I have to buy winter clothings (sic). Also rents are very high here. I am therefore counting on your assistance for the Spring term.” The rest of the letter continues with Obama expressing how desperately low he was on money to live in Cambridge and continue his studies, again without any mention of his wife and son left behind in Hawaii or any hint of a suggestion that Obama might have some continuing financial obligations to his abandoned Hawaiian family. “In fact I am surprised that even a hamburger is ¢50 here, a thing I never experienced before,” Obama continued. “The minimum I can live on here is $200. So far I have completely no funds for the second semester.” He asked only for enough money to make it through the next term. “I do not even have anywhere to run except to you,” the Kenyan pleaded. “I shall therefore be most grateful if you will help me with the funds for the next semester as you promised me when I last talked with you when I was in New York. I am sure that if I can get the $1,000 which I applied for I should be able to pull through the second semester.” How Obama Sr. got to Hawaii WND reportedl in 2010 the flight manifest found in the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., debunked President Obama’s claim that his Kenyan father had come to the United States as part of airlift of 81 Kenyan students backed by baseball player Jackie Robinson, which arrived in New York on Sept. 9, 1959. The New York Times article published Saturday corroborates WND’s previous reporting that he set off for the U.S. on an initial flight from Nairobi to Rome. WND also reported in 2010 that Obama’s flight to the United States in 1959 was paid for by Mrs. Helen Roberts and Mrs. Elizabeth Mooney Kirk, “an international literary agent,” a co-author with Charles Laubach, the founder of the Laubach Literary Institute. Kenyan politician Tom Mboya put Obama’s name on a list compiled by the African American Students Foundation of students eligible to receive one of a handful of scholarships in part funded by Jackie Robinson and administered by the Scheinman Foundation. William X. Scheinman was a Wall Street broker who befriended Mboya on a trip to Africa in 1956 and subsequently involve helped finance the students Mboya sent to the U.S. from Africa. WND further reported finding in the archives at the Library of Congress a Sept. 19, 1959, newspaper article authored by reporter Shurei Hirozawa documenting that Obama Sr. arrived at the University of Hawaii with no scholarship and very little money. Obama Sr. “clerked several years in the capital city of Nairobi to save enough for a college education and picked the University of Hawaii when he read in an American magazine about its racial tolerance,” Hirozawa wrote. “But the money he saved will only stretch out for two semesters or less because of the high cost of living in Hawaii, he found out,” Hirozawa continued. “He’ll work, he says, and probably apply for a scholarship.” Leftist activist financed Obama Sr. Leftist activist Cora Weiss provides the answer to who funded Obama Sr.’s education in Hawaii. In a letter dated May 7 to the New York Times, Weiss acknowledged that Obama came to Hawaii on his own. “Barack Obama Sr., who greatly admired Mboya, did not come on the first flight, but he was a member of the airlift generation, arriving here in 1959 with the support of two American women teachers.” Weiss goes on to state that the African American Students Foundation Inc. provided Obama Sr. with three grants, allowing him to continue his studies at the University of Hawaii after his personal savings were exhausted. Shachtman confirms in “Airlift to America,” on page 9, that the African American Students Foundation sent Obama Sr. checks while he was at the University of Hawaii, “in increments of $50 or $150 for expenses, $243 for tuition. Shachtman further noted Obama Sr. “was mostly supported by Mooney, who in 1960 had married an expatriate American, Elmer Kirk, and shortly moved with her husband back to the United States. Shachtman also commented that “some Kennedy money was later used to assist [Obama Sr.] in Hawaii,” although Shachtman failed to provide details. As noted by David Horowitz’s Discover The Networks, Weiss has served since its inception in 1959 as the president of the Samuel Rubin Foundation, named for her father, the Faberge millionaire and secret Communist Party USA member and identified Comintern agent. Horowitz also credits Weiss with being a principal financier and board member of the Institute of Policy Studies that was founded with a 1963 grant from the Rubin Foundation. Weiss’s husband, Peter, is chairman of the Institute of Policy Services board of trustees and a member of the National Lawyers Guild and the National Emergency Civil Liberties Committee, both of which were created as Communist Party front organizations. The Institute of Policy Studies has advanced leftist causes since its foundation. The institute’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., was a place for KGB agents from the nearby Soviet embassy to convene and strategize, . In her May 7 letter to the New York Times, Weiss said the African American Students Foundation was formed after Mboya’s trip to the U.S. in April 1959, seeking scholarships so Kenyans and other East Africans “could secure the education never offered under British colonialism.” According to Weiss, the founders of the African American Students Foundation included William X. Scheinman, singer Harry Belafonte, actor Sidney Poitier, Jackie Robinson, civil rights activists Frank Montero and Ted Kheel, Mrs. Ralph Bunche, Mrs. Chester Bowles “and a host of educators and me.” Weiss noted the African American Students Foundation brought 773 students from Kenya and East Africa to the U.S. between 1959 and 1963.

Obama Administration Has History of Scrubbing Allah from Transcripts

by Aaron Klein20 Jun 20162,913 SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER

TEL AVIV – Monday’s release of the text of Orlando terrorist shooter Omar Mateen’s 9-1-1 call is not the first time the Obama administration purportedly scrubbed “Allah” from a transcript. To this day, the official White House transcript of a Rose Garden ceremony with the father of released soldier Bowe Bergdahl transcribes every word besides Robert Bergdahl’s Arabic declaration of “Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim.” That means “In the name of Allah, the merciful, the compassionate.” The White House website provides a video of the ceremony, at which the controversial prisoner swap for Berghdahl in exchange for five Taliban members who were being held at the detention center at Guantanamo Bay was announced. In the video, Robert Bergdahl can clearly be heard making the declaration to Allah. Yet, here is the relevant portion of the official transcript, as provided by the White House: I’d like to say to Bowe right now, who is having trouble speaking English — (speaks in Pashto) — I’m your father, Bowe. The “Pashto” is actually Arabic. Watch the full video here. (Robert Bergdahl’s Allah remarks begin at 4:05) Afterwards, the Daily Mail cited a report that the Taliban were “thrilled” at the declaration to Allah. The newspaper reported: The Arabic phrase bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim appears prominently in the Koran and means ‘In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful’. Sara Carter, senior Washington correspondent for conservative news network TheBlaze, said her Taliban sources were ‘thrilled’ at the phrase being used. At the time, former CIA officer Clare Lopez explained of the Arabic declaration, “These are the opening words of every chapter of the Qur’an except one (the chapter of the sword – the 9th).” “By uttering these words on the grounds of the WH, Bergdahl (the father) sanctified the WH and claimed it for Islam,” Lopez charged. Brigitte Gabriel of Act for America told Fox News that the expression declares the greatness of Allah, and she called it a “war cry of Allah.” Zuhdi Jasser, an advocate for moderate Islam, told Fox News that he uses the phrase daily in his prayers and that the expression is not necessarily radical. On Monday, the FBI finally released what it said was a full transcript of Mateen’s 50-second call with a 911 operator while he was perpetrating the deadly attack on the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. After first releasing a redacted transcript that deleted references to the Islamic State, the FBI released the full transcript, which included an English translation changing the word “Allah” to “God.” With research by Joshua Klein.

Alert: Very Strange BIOHAZARD Military Drill Set For July Using Foreign Language Services

A military drill regarding a potential biohazard scenario is set to take place in July, and this drill will use Foreign Language Services. Without a doubt, there is something to these exercises that should make us question what is going on? And what is the military preparing for? As Americans, we have a right to know how the government spends our tax dollars, and why the military is training on our streets. Recently a job listing came up in Vermont, placed by the FLSS, which stands for “Foreign Language Services Simulation.” The drill is in July, in Burlington Vermont. The details of this “drill” are far from the usual crisis scenario. The listing on Craigslist was recently deleted by the author. The FLSS teamed with the DOD (as per their about page) will gear up for some “sort of” contamination drill. The exercise will entail; “Some role players/actors will get extremely wet. Prop clothing will be cut off and they will be scrubbed with brushes and a lot of water (possibly cold water).” There are an array of scenarios that come to mind given this description. Some of which could include contamination, disease, fires, health risks and so on. Given the fact that the FLSS is involved in this particular drill, it appears as though this training will potentially contain foreigners. The question from there is, will this drill be about refugees? Or will it be about Foreign troops? Both of which are already within the continental United States. The Vermont drill does house the possibility of being a false flag because also stated within the FLSS’s website is their role in “live” simulations. Foreign Language Services Simulation (FLSS) provides partnership to the Department of Defense by preparing the military for operational support on training fields at home and overseas. Despite our name, our training assets extend beyond integrating and operating with FLS’s. We offer Field Training, Instructional and Technical services involving live, simulated or virtual milieus. What separates FLSS’s training above the others? Our team members possess a wide array of military special operations experience. We have vetted these individuals to become Excellent Instructors, to bestow maximum potential to teammates and to pass down vital knowledge from today’s battlefields. Clearly, training must be current, realistic and relevant. Our instructors practice with teammates until practice makes perfect on: problem solving and reasoning, adaptive leadership skills, cultural/environmental awareness and emerging battlefield technologies. Our comprehensive training capacity covers critical details through training support (project management, scenario development, trainers, observer-controllers, and support staff) and training services (advisors, instructors, subject experts, and training/curriculum development). Furthermore, FLSS supplements staff for administrative, analytical, logistics staff support, strategic/tactical operations and planning, and technical. Failure is not an option. FLSS knows each and every mission places lives and material in the line of fire. This explains our motto: “We’re not looking just to win a contract; we’re looking to do the job right” – About page with their connections to the DOD. It is no secret that the DOD hires contractors to do the dirty work of false flags, it is also no secret that the military entangles itself with the agenda of the Elite, which is why these drills always have both purpose and meaning to the agenda. It is also important to note that not every exercise goes “live” but far too often the drills done by the government have mysteriously coincided with actual events carried out by actors, hence the name “false flag.” UPDATE Another drill is set for Vermont this fall as well, here is the PDF for what that will entail.

« ISIS has found a way to pierce US counter-terrorism defenses | Main | The Orlando Transcript and a Renewed Terrorist Threat » Monday, 20 June 2016 Disruptive Robocalling

Three months ago, I wrote up a worst case scenario for how the US could end up in a civil war this fall. Unfortunately, nothing has changed. The conditions that make the scenario possible are still valid. In fact, in one way it has gotten worse: one of the theoretical methods of disruption that I featured in the scenario was recently used in the real world. In my scenario, robocalling was used to shut down polling places to skew election results and plunge the US into chaos: Robocalls pour in to police departments and polling places in heavily (Rep or Dem) polling locations with bomb/terrorist threats. Widespread poll closures occur. Calls continue until late. This speculation became reality last month when threatening robocalls were used to shut down dozens of schools in at least 21 U.S. states: Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Maryland, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming. As many as 10 schools received the threats in some states. Further, in the UK, several schools received a 90-second recorded call from a voice with an American accent promising that "shrapnel" would "take children's the heads off," according to multiple news reports. This was the first time we've ever seen a nation-wide/international use of this technique. It's also likely we'll see it again since: it works, there isn't a clearing house for threats of this type, responders/bureaucrats are extremely risk averse (even more so since Orlando and San Bernardino), and (most importantly) the US phone system is easy to hack. Let's expand on that last point. The reason the US phone system is easy to hack is due to the pervasive influence of the US direct marketing and collections (bad debt) industry. These industries lobby hard at the state level to ensure full hackable access to the system. However, this means it's easy for attackers to exploit the system to do real harm. Here's an example: It's possible to dynamically change the caller ID used on every call you make. This means an attacker can insert fake caller IDs such as "FBI" , "Atlanta Police" etc. to make their calls seem more credible and increase the disruptive impact. Sincerely, John Robb PS: bots will make it possible to automate terrorism....

What Could Go Wrong? Crime Fighting Robots Now Equipped with Self-Defense Instincts

TOPICS: Claire Bernish Robots June 21, 2016 By Claire Bernish

Once thought to be too approachable for their own good — as in, able to efficaciously perform the tasks they’ve been designed to do — robots are now being programmed with self-defense capabilities. Now, robots which, say, patrol for criminal or suspicious activity come with a blend of humanoid characteristics and self-defense programs which prevent them from being perceived as too cute — or too menacing. “Because of all the doomsday scenarios people imagine with robots, their makers have to insert some cuteness,” explained Golden Krishna, a designer with Alphabet’s Google, as reported by the Wall Street Journal. “When humans see a robot that doesn’t have eyes,” said Rodolphe Gelin, SoftBank Group Corp. robotics unit chief scientific officer, “they think it doesn’t care about them.” That perception — however Orwellian it might sound — can be detrimental to a robot’s ability to function on the job in the presence of humans. After several failed design attempts to find the appropriate balance between relatable and threatening — and a number of incidents in which robots faced ‘abuse’ or ‘assault’ by humans — newer robots employ self-defense capabilities. One incident of, well, ‘roboticide’ occurred with the failed experiment of HitchBOT. This cylindrical robot with an LED smile was dropped off on the roadside to see how if robots could “depend on people” — but the experiment came to an abrupt halt when HitchBOT “was found decapitated in Philadelphia last summer,” the WSJ noted. “While the project showed that they can indeed trust humans,” HitchBOT’s creators said generally of robots, “there are also exceptions to the rule.” Experts on the interaction between humans and their new mechanical counterparts observed “robot abuse” in action in Okinawa, Japan, in 2014, when robots designed to assist the elderly in purchasing groceries came under attack by children, who kicked it, beat it with a bottle and bent its neck. “The robot said ‘Someone help me!’ and Ouch, that hurt,” said researcher, Dražen Bršcic, with ATR Intelligent Robotics and Communications Laboratories, as cited by the WSJ. “But it didn’t stop the children.” Those experiments led, in part, to robots with human-like facial features that can also employ defensive tactics if someone gets spooked or wishes to cause harm. Instead of reacting as if they’re being hurt, some newer robots have been designed to simply stop moving altogether — in theory, to cause attackers to lose interest. Thus, the K5 — a robot who performs all the functions of security patrols except offense — was born. The WSJ described the K5: The camera ended up at nose position. A row of ultrasonic sensors, to help it avoid running into people, looks like buttons. A navigation laser resembles a hat. Curved lights are eye-like. The K5 patrols with buddy bots. If someone messes with one, its partner can document the offense. The K5’s shape and 300 pounds offer protection: The lack of edges make it hard for bad guys to lift and steal. Knightscope rents a K5 for $7 and hour or about $60,000 a year. This 5-foot, 3-inch, glossy-white, graffiti-resistant K5 now appears almost neutral and can interact with humans more readily than some previous designs — such as a robot resembling a small tank — but is built with the ‘play dead’ reflex if attacked. Knightscope, the start-up responsible for the K5, sought to create a beat cop robot; and the company’s vice president of marketing and sales, Stacy Stephens — as a former Dallas police officer — has offered input for the project. “When it comes to mischievous activities,” she said in the WSJ, “I know a bit about what people do. While the world might not be quite ready for armed robots-on-patrol, it would be a question worth considering as designs improve and people become familiarized to their presence. Armed, unmanned aerial vehicles — drones — have been responsible for a highly-contentious number of deaths in conflicts around the world, and particularly, the Middle East. Can armed, unmanned, non-aerial, ‘human-esque’ robots really be that far in our future? Below is a video of the K5 in action.

FBI says utility pole surveillance cam locations must be kept secret

"Disclosure of even minor details about them may cause jeopardy," bureau says.

by David Kravets - Jun 15, 2016 2:01pm EDT

The US Federal Bureau of Investigation has successfully convinced a federal judge to block the disclosure of where the bureau has attached surveillance cams on Seattle utility poles. The decision Monday stopping Seattle City Light from divulging the information was expected, as claims of national security tend to trump the public's right to know. However, this privacy dispute highlights a powerful and clandestine tool the authorities are employing across the country to snoop on the public—sometimes with warrants, sometimes without. Just last month, for example, this powerful surveillance measure—which sometimes allows the authorities to control the camera's focus point remotely—helped crack a sex trafficking ring in suburban Chicago. Meanwhile, in stopping the release of the Seattle surveillance cam location information—in a public records act case request brought by activist Phil Mocek—US District Judge Richard Jones agreed (PDF) with the FBI's contention that releasing the data would harm national security. "If the Protected Information is released, the United States will not be able to obtain its return; the confidentiality of the Protected Information will be destroyed, and the recipients will be free to publish it or post the sensitive information wherever they choose, including on the Internet, where it would harm important federal law enforcement operational interests as well as the personal privacy of innocent third parties," Jones ruled. Peter Winn, assistant US attorney in Seattle, won the injunction after telling Judge Jones that "the FBI’s use of the pole camera technique is a powerful tool in FBI investigations of criminal violations and national security threats. Disclosure of even minor details about them may cause jeopardy to important federal interests because, much like a jigsaw puzzle, each detail may aid adversaries in piecing together information about the capabilities, limitations, and circumstances of equipment’s use, and would allow law enforcement subjects, or national security adversaries, to accumulate information and draw conclusions about the FBI’s use of this technology, in order to evade effective, lawful investigation by the FBI" (PDF). The deployment of such video cameras appears to be widespread. What's more, the Seattle authorities aren't saying whether they have obtained court warrants to install the surveillance cams. And the law on the matter is murky at best. Consider that in February, an Ohio-based federal appeals court upheld the firearms conviction of a Tennessee man whose brother's rural farm was monitored for 10 weeks straight by a remote-controlled camera that the authorities installed on a utility pole 200 yards away without a warrant. That ruling conflicted with one issued by a Washington state federal judge who in 2014 tossed an alleged drug dealer's conviction that was gained under the same circumstances—the warrantless spying on a suspect via a webcam attached to a utility pole near his rural Washington state property. In May, the FBI dropped its appeal of that decision without providing any reason. Before abandoning its appeal, the government said (PDF) that it had the right to deploy the webcam without a court warrant because the device was on the public's right-of-way and was akin to a cop's observations from the street. The judge in the case, however, said the Fourth Amendment required that the police needed a warrant to spy. In an e-mail to Ars, Seattle city attorney spokeswoman Kimberly Mills declined to say whether the FBI obtained warrants to install surveillance cams on Seattle City Light utility poles. "The City is in litigation and will have no further comment," she said. Mills suggested we speak with the FBI office in Seattle, and we did. Ayn Dietrich-Williams, an FBI spokeswoman in Seattle, said that "given the ongoing litigation, it would not be appropriate for the FBI to comment." She pointed to Winn's filing as a source of possible answers. In Winn's brief, we discovered a link to "The Attorney General's Guidelines For Domestic FBI Operations." Under the "Particular Methods" section, there's this reference: Use of closed-circuit television, direction finders, and other monitoring devices, subject to legal review by the Chief Division Counsel or the FBI Office of the General Counsel. (The methods described in this paragraph usually do not require court orders or warrants unless they involve physical trespass or non-consensual monitoring of communications, but legal review is necessary to ensure compliance with all applicable legal requirements.) Mocek told Ars that as part of his utility pole cam investigation, "I have learned nothing of related warrants or of a lack thereof." Winn, meanwhile, wrote to Judge Jones that the location information about the disguised surveillance cams should be withheld because the public might think they are an "invasion of privacy." "Because of their close proximity to the subjects of surveillance, unauthorized disclosure of the locations of current or previously installed pole cameras can reasonably be expected to constitute an unwarranted invasion of privacy for those persons under investigation who have not yet been charged. It can also reasonably be expected to constitute an unwarranted invasion of the privacy of innocent third parties not under investigation but geographically near the current or past location of the camera, who may falsely be assumed to be the subject of an FBI investigation," Winn wrote. Winn also said that revealing the cameras' locations could threaten the safety of FBI agents. "Revelation of the subject of an FBI investigation by the unauthorized disclosure of the location of a current or previously installed pole camera can have a devastating impact on an investigation," Winn told Judge Jones. "Armed with such knowledge, a subject would not only be able to evade further investigation by the FBI but would also be able to employ countermeasures to impede further investigation such as destroying, hiding, or otherwise concealing evidence; intimidating or retaliating against cooperating witnesses; or by simply fleeing the jurisdiction. Such disclosure would also allow any individual other than the subject of an investigation who is intent on interfering with or thwarting the investigation to do so. As such, unauthorized disclosure of the location of a pole camera could threaten the safety of the FBI agents involved with the investigation." And if the cameras become "publicly identifiable," Winn said, "subjects of the criminal investigation and national security adversaries of the United States will know what to look for to discern whether the FBI is conducting surveillance in a particular location."

Visium's Sanjay Valvani found dead in apparent suicide after insider trading charge

Business Insider By Rachael Levy June 21, 2016 9:27 AM

(Sanjay Valvani, a portfolio manager at Visium.REUTERS/Lucas Jackson)

Sanjay Valvani, a portfolio manager at Visium Asset Management who was charged with insider trading last week, was found dead Monday night. "We mourn the tragic loss of Sanjay, a devoted father, husband, and friend," Jacob Gottlieb, Visium's founder, said in a statement. "Our thoughts are with his family during this difficult time." A New York Police Department representative said Valvani was found by his wife and left a suicide note. Valvani, 44, turned himself in to authorities last week. He was charged with netting about $25 million for an unnamed investment firm using inside information on the pending approval of a generic drug. Valvani had pleaded not guilty. "This is a horrible tragedy that is difficult to comprehend," Valvani's lawyer, Barry Berke, and partner Eric Tirschwell said in a statement. "We hope for the sake of his family and his memory that it will not be forgotten that the charges against him were only unproven accusations and he had always maintained his innocence." Visium had placed Valvani on leave earlier this year after it announced that it was under investigation. The hedge fund said on Friday that it would shut down its operations. Valvani faced numerous charges, according to the complaint: Valvani was accused of committing securities and wire fraud with a former senior Food and Drug Administration official, Gordon Johnston, from about 2005 through 2011. Valvani "unlawfully obtained highly confidential and material nonpublic information from the FDA about the agency's approval of pending generic drug applications," according to the US attorney's statement. Valvani was also charged with passing material nonpublic info to Chris Plaford, a former Visium portfolio manager, who allegedly traded on that info. Johnston and Plaford have pleaded guilty and admitted their participation in the scheme. The complaint said Valvani instructed Johnston, the former FDA official, about the status and approval of a generic drug, and Johnston passed along that info back to Valvani. Valvani was accused of using that info to bet on two pharma companies that were likely to be affected by the inside tip, allegedly netting about $25 million in trading profits. Valvani was also accused of tipping off Plaford on this info. A representative for the Department of Justice declined to comment on whether Valvani's death would affect the case. Dow Jones earlier reported that the death was an apparent suicide. *An earlier version of this article said that Valvani was found dead Tuesday morning. It has been corrected.

China creates world’s fastest computer without relying on US hardware for first time

Published time: 21 Jun, 2016 13:12

A Chinese supercomputer has been named the world's fastest computer for the seventh year in a row – but unlike previous winners, this year's champion uses only Chinese-designed processors, representing a decline of US dominance in the field. The new titleholder, the Sunway TaihuLight at the National Supercomputing Center in Wuxi, was developed by China's National Research Center of Parallel Computer Engineering & Technology. The supercomputer uses Chinese-developed ShenWei processors, “ending any remaining speculation that China would have to rely on Western technology to compete effectively in the upper echelons of supercomputing," said a statement by the TOP500 project ranking the world's fastest supercomputers. It is capable of 93 petaflops, or quadrillion calculations per second, according to TOP500. It was designed for use in engineering and research, including in the fields of climate, weather, life sciences, advanced manufacturing, and data analytics. The TaihuLight will be introduced at the International Supercomputing Conference in Frankfurt, Germany, on Tuesday. "As the first No. 1 system of China that is completely based on homegrown processors, the Sunway TaihuLight system demonstrates the significant progress that China has made in the domain of designing and manufacturing large-scale computation systems," Guangwen Yang, director of the Wuxi center, was quoted as saying in the TOP500 statement. Other countries with computers in the Top 10 were Japan, Switzerland, Germany, and Saudi Arabia. In addition to beating out US computers, China also surpassed the US for the first time as the country with the most supercomputers in the top 500. China had 167 systems and the US had 165. Japan took third place with 29 systems. China's developments serve as evidence of dwindling US dominance in the field, with TOP500 organizers saying: “Considering that just 10 years ago, China claimed a mere 28 systems on the list, with none ranked in the top 30, the nation has come further and faster than any other country in the history of supercomputing.” Defined as a computer that performs at or near the highest operational rate for computers, supercomputers are one of a series of technologies being used by China's ruling Communist Party for development. The technologies have received huge financial support in the country.

Russia successfully test-fires anti-ballistic missile – Defense Ministry

Published time: 21 Jun, 2016 08:08 Edited time: 21 Jun, 2016 14:55

The Russian Air Force has test-fired a domestically built short-range anti-ballistic missile to verify its performance. The system is already in use with the military as part of Russia’s missile defense shield. The short-range anti-ballistic missile (ABM) was successfully test-fired at 7.00am local time on Tuesday from the Sary-Shagan testing ground in Kazakhstan, the Russian Defense Ministry’s press service said, according to TASS. The missile defense system is capable of neutralizing a possible nuclear strike on Russia, and ensures operation of national command and control systems in real-time mode, the statement added. A newer missile defense system is expected to replace it in the future, utilizing upgraded software and modernized ABMs. The anti-ballistic missile performed well during the test and hit its target on schedule, Lieutenant General Viktor Gumenny, deputy commander of the Russian Air Force, told TASS. Russia has been developing a missile defense shield for several decades to secure strategic military balance with the US. The A-135 anti-ballistic missile system is currently deployed around Moscow. It comprises dozens of interceptor missiles and sophisticated early warning radars. The system, operated by the Air and Missile Defense Command of the Russian Air Force, is compliant with the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty from which the US unilaterally withdrew in 2002. America keeps developing its own systems, including in Eastern Europe, where NATO is building Aegis Ashore ground-based missile defense sites. The bloc’s missile defense compound in Deveselu, Romania, became operational in May. Poland plans to obtain a similar base within two years. Washington insists the Aegis Ashore systems are for “defensive purpose only,” arguing they would help protect European allies from Iran or North Korea’s missile threats. Moscow says the systems can be easily adapted to deploy offensive weapons. “The missiles are put into a capsule used for launches of sea-based Tomahawk missiles. Now they are placing their antimissiles there, which are capable of engaging a target at a distance of up to 500 kilometers [310 miles],” Russian President Vladimir Putin said at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) on Friday. “We know year by year what will happen, and they know that we know,” he said, adding that Western officials “pull the wool over [their news outlets] eyes,” who in turn misinform their audiences. Russian leaders have previously said Washington’s missile defense plans in Eastern Europe leave Moscow with no choice but to target countries hosting such systems, stressing that Russia’s next-generation ballistic missiles are capable of penetrating any adversary missile defense shield.

(2nd LD) N. Korea preparing Musudan missile launch: source

2016-06-21 15:33 Normal FontLarge Font

(ATTN: UPDATES with background in last 8 paras)

North Korea appears to be preparing to launch a Musudan intermediate-range ballistic missile from the east coast, a South Korean government source said Tuesday, with Seoul's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) confirming that the reclusive country could move forward with another test fire. "We are closely watching after detecting signs that the North is moving toward the launch of what appears to be a Musudan missile," the source said on the condition of anonymity. Currently, the North appears ready to deploy a mobile launcher vehicle loaded with the missile to its east coast, according to the source. The JCS later said, "Our military is closely tracking related signs with the possibility of the North's additional missile launch being a consideration." Shortly before South Korea's confirmation, Japan's Kyodo news agency reported that the North is preparing to fire a ballistic missile. The media outlet said surveillance detected preparations to launch a missile loaded onto a mobile launcher. It speculated that the missile could be a Musudan. It said the launch could take place on Saturday, the date the 1950-53 Korean War broke out, or June 29 when the North is scheduled to hold the Supreme People's Assembly. The report also said Japan's Defense Minister Gen Nakatani has given the order to shoot down any North Korean missiles that violate Japan's airspace or territorial waters. With an estimated range of some 3,000 to 4,000 kilometers, the Musudan missile could theoretically reach anywhere in Japan and as far as Guam. North Korea has deployed some 50 Musudan missiles with its forces since 2007, but the country first test-fired them on April 15. The first test and two more launches, both on April 28, all ended in failure. On May 31, the North conducted its fourth Musudan launch test, although this attempt also ended in failure. Such back-to-back launch failures have stoked speculations that the North may not give up its test of the Musudan ballistic missile. South Korea's foreign ministry warned of action at the international level should the North launch another missile in violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions. "This would further isolate the North from the international community, and in such an event our government plans to take steps, including at the U.N. together with our allies," ministry spokesman Cho June-hyuck said during a regular press briefing. The U.N. Security Council slapped the toughest sanctions yet on the North in March in response to its fourth nuclear test in January and its long-range rocket launch in February.

Large-scale motion detected near San Andreas Fault System

"We were able to break down the noisy signals to isolate a simple vertical motion pattern that curiously straddled the San Andreas fault," researcher Samuel Howell said.

By Brooks Hays | June 20, 2016 at 2:03 PM

HONOLULU, June 20 (UPI) -- Analysis of GPS data has revealed new areas of motion around the San Andreas Fault System. Using data collected by the EarthScope Plate Boundary Observatory's GPS array, researchers identified 125-mile-wide "lobes" of uplift and subsidence. Over the last several years, the lobes, which straddle the fault line, have hosted a few millimeters of annual movement. Computer models simulating the San Andreas Fault System have predicted such crustal movement, but the areas of motion hadn't been physically identified until now. Researchers used advanced statistical modeling to identify the movement among the inevitable statistical noise that comes with monitoring minute movements in the Earth's crust. "While the San Andreas GPS data has been publicly available for more than a decade, the vertical component of the measurements had largely been ignored in tectonic investigations because of difficulties in interpreting the noisy data," lead author Samuel Howell, a researcher at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, explained in a news release. "Using this technique, we were able to break down the noisy signals to isolate a simple vertical motion pattern that curiously straddled the San Andreas fault." The validity of the vertical patterns was confirmed by the fact that similar motions were predicted by an earthquake model designed by researchers at the University of Hawaii's School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology. "We were surprised and thrilled when this statistical method produced a coherent velocity field similar to the one predicted by our physical earthquake cycle models," said researcher Bridget Smith-Konter. "The powerful combination of a priori model predictions and a unique analysis of vertical GPS data led us to confirm that the buildup of century-long earthquake cycle forces within the crust are a dominant source of the observed vertical motion signal." Researchers say their new findings -- published in the journal Nature Geosciences -- could help scientists use smaller lobes of vertical motion to predict more significant ruptures.

Hundreds of families are evacuated as record-breaking heatwave gripping the Southwest kills four and feeds massive wildfires across three states, scorching thousands of acres At least four people have died from the blistering heat that has gripped the western United States, authorities said Three hikers and a mountain biker died in Arizona on Sunday, where record-breaking temperatures were reported The heatwave has fed wildfires in California, New Mexico and Arizona, forcing evacuations in some areas Twin wildfires in Azusa and Duarte in California burned through at least 3,500 acres in the San Gabriel Mountains Some 140 families were evacuated in the Santa Barbara area where about 2,000 firefighters have been battling the so-called Sherpa fire that has already burned nearly 8,000 acres

By Associated Press and Dailymail.com Reporter Published: 12:48 EST, 20 June 2016 | Updated: 08:47 EST, 21 June 2016

At least four people have died from the blistering heat that has gripped the western United States and fed wildfires across three states, forcing hundreds of homes to be evacuated, authorities said on Monday. The dead were three hikers and a mountain biker who succumbed to the heatwave in Arizona on Sunday, where record-breaking temperatures were reported in some areas. The mercury hit 118 in Phoenix on Sunday, according to the National Weather Service, breaking a record of 115 set for the date nearly 50 years ago. Some people in Arizona noticed the thermometers in their cars had spiked, with temperatures reading in the 120s. Larry Subervi, spokesman for the Phoenix fire department, said temperatures on Sunday had soared to 120 degrees and the crushing heat was expected to get worse on Monday before easing the rest of the week. He said one of the victims was an experienced 28-year-old female mountain biker who had embarked on a two-and-a-half-hour ride in the Phoenix area with enough water, but got overwhelmed by the heat. The other victims were a 25-year-old man who died while hiking on the Peralta Trail near Gold Canyon, a 19-year-old woman who died while hiking in the Tuscon area and a man who was found dead near another trail. 'We have a heatwave every year, but we are close to our all-time record in 1990 of 122 degrees Fahrenheit (50 Celsius),' he told AFP. The heatwave has fed wildfires in California, New Mexico and Arizona, forcing evacuations in some areas. Some 140 families were evacuated in the Santa Barbara area of California where about 2,000 firefighters for several days have been battling the so-called Sherpa fire that has already burned nearly 8,000 acres (3,200 hectares). Meanwhile, twin wildfires in Azusa and Duarte burned through at least 3,500 acres in the San Gabriel Mountains on Monday, according to the LA Times. The fires have forced around 750 residents to evacuate. Tawni Atencio was on the way to basketball practice with her mother when her stepfather called and told them they had to evacuate their home northeast of Los Angeles because of a wildfire. The 17-year-old Atencio says her mom turned the car around Monday and drove straight to their home in Bradbury, in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. They went back to get family photos, their two dogs, clothes, and their five cars and a boat. Atencio says the flames were just a couple miles from their home and were making the house hot despite air-conditioning. The teenager says the fire is crazy and scary but also that it was 'kind of cool' watching helicopters drop retardant on the blaze. Atencio says she's at a friend's house in Long Beach, California, while her family finishes evacuating. Meanwhile, another wildfire in Potrero, California, a small desert town close to the Mexican border forced 75 people to evacuate, Fox News reports. Authorities say a wildfire in eastern Arizona that doubled in size to nearly 42 square miles is burning in an area with sparse vegetation. Navajo County spokesman Adam Wolfe said Monday afternoon that 300 residents of the community of Cedar Creek have been warned to prepare to leave. He says the southern edge of the fire is still about 2½ miles north of the community. Multiagency operations chief Todd Abel says the fire isn't moving quickly toward Cedar Creek because of shifting winds. Some 770 firefighters are fighting the fire along with 37 engines, seven bulldozers, 11 water tenders, seven helicopters and four single-engine air tankers. Fire officials say additional resources have been ordered. The fire began Wednesday and its cause is under investigation. In New Mexico, the Dog Head fire about 30 miles (48 kilometers) south of Albuquerque has also damaged two dozen homes and scorched nearly 18,000 acres, forcing evacuations, officials said. They said that as of Monday morning, only nine per cent of the fire had been contained. Another fire caused by lightning near Cibola National Forest, in New Mexico, has eaten up more than 36,000 acres and was 30 per cent contained. The fire, which started on May 21, was expected to be contained by late July. Meanwhile, a flight from Houston heading to Phoenix had to return to the Texas airport because of complications from the heat. The United Airlines flight got as far as New Mexico before it was forced to turn around. In Southern California, the National Weather Service reported 17 daily heat records were broken on Sunday, most for readings well over 100 degrees. The aptly named desert town of Thermal about 25 miles southeast of Palm Springs saw a high of 119 degrees. Burbank was a record 109, breaking the old mark of 104. More of the same was in the works for Monday due to high pressure over the Four Corners region of the Southwest. 'We're expecting something similar with highs around 115 to 120, with the warmest areas in Southern California,' National Weather Service meteorologist Bianca Hernandez said. Southwestern residents commiserated on social media about the sweltering heat by posting photos of boiling temperature readings on car thermometers and cellphones. Some people ventured outside for quick errands. Kim Leeds, 28, had to take her dog Bo outside in the afternoon for a bathroom break. The Australian shepherd wears special booties with rubber bottoms that help protect his paws from hot pavement. 'He does really well with them. He doesn't mind walking around,' Leeds said. Preparing to enter her fourth summer in Phoenix, Leeds also decided to experiment with her car. 'I'm totally reveling in this experience because I'm actually baking cookies in my car,' Leeds said. 'I've been here long enough that I've got to do these things.' Others took advantage of discounts at Phoenix-area resorts, where summer can be the slow season. Hotel guests got an early start Sunday at the JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn Resort and Spa as temperatures climbed. Several guests swam in the pool and sat under umbrellas sipping water and other iced drinks to cool off. State regulators urged residents to cut consumption of electricity Monday, when the heat wave was expected to peak. Firefighters made some progress against a blaze putting hundreds of homes and popular seaside campgrounds near Santa Barbara at risk when overnight winds pushed flames into previously burned areas. But officials warned of high heat, low humidity and gusty winds through Tuesday for the rugged coastal slopes. The blaze was more than halfway contained after burning more than 12 square miles since Wednesday, but 270 structures are still threatened. In central New Mexico, a 28-square-mile fire that erupted last week and destroyed 24 homes in the Manzano Mountains south of Albuquerque was largely uncontained. But higher humidity overnight allowed crews to strengthen lines around the fire and keep a lookout for hot spots where flames could jump the line. In eastern Arizona, a fire doubled to nearly 42 square miles and led officials to warn a community of 300 residents to prepare to evacuate. But the blaze on the Fort Apache Indian Reservation southwest of Show Low was not moving quickly toward the community of Cedar Creek because of sparse vegetation and shifting winds.

Israel and Turkey on the verge of an agreement

By NIMROD GOREN \ 06/20/2016 21:25

A new chapter in Israel-Turkey relations seems to be quickly approaching, producing a set fresh of bilateral and regional opportunities that are waiting to be explored and acted upon. Israel and Turkey have been conveying to their publics positive messages about progress in the bilateral negotiations toward a reconciliation agreement. Expectations are that a deal may be announced following the next round of talks, planned for the second half of June, and reconciliatory messages have been voiced in mid- June by the Turkish prime minister as well as by Israeli government officials. The agreement is set to upgrade Israel-Turkey relations to full diplomatic ties, and enable a return to normal relations. Major differences will remain between the two countries (including on Israel’s policies toward the Palestinians), but the two countries will be able to return to constructive working relations, as was the case in the first years of the Justice and Development Party (AKP) in power, starting in late 2002. Israel and Turkey have been engaged in negotiations to try and mend relations for several years, since the flotilla incident occurred in May 2010. This process had many ups and downs, moving between progress and setbacks. But the fact that despite the growing mistrust and harsh rhetoric the two sides have found their way time and time again to the negotiation table means that they both see value in improving the relationship. A public opinion poll carried out by the Mitvim Institute in late 2015 showed that for the Israeli public, security cooperation is the most important reason to mend ties with Turkey. However, possible export of Israeli natural gas has become an important factor as well. While security and economics are important driving forces, the new chapter of Israel-Turkey relations should include more enhanced civil society cooperation among NGOs and think tanks, including in the fields of conflict resolution and democracy. For example, over the past four years, the Mitvim Institute and GPoT Center have been working together to support the mending of Israel-Turkey relations, and this cooperation can be a positive model for others. There is also an initiative to launch a Turkey-Israel Civil Society Forum, which can help fill a real gap in the field of cooperation between NGOs. A key pillar in the agreement relates to Gaza. Efforts have been made to find a formula that will address Turkey’s concern about living conditions there, and Israel’s concern regarding security threats. According to media reports, Turkey will be granted somewhat of a special status in regard to Gaza, which will enable it to support the people of Gaza through providing humanitarian aid, as well as water and energy. Such a formula can enable Israel to improve living conditions in Gaza, without having Hamas be able to claim credit for it. Turkey will be seen as the one to praise for this achievement. Other regional actors are also of significance. Saudi Arabia, which is gradually becoming a more important factor in the geo-political landscape of the Middle East, is also becoming more relevant to Israel- Turkey relations. Although Israel- Saudi relations do not formally exist, there is increased visibility to contacts between the two states (i.e. joint panels of Israeli and Saudi speakers in various conferences). The Saudis have also stepped up their cooperation with Turkey, and the close relations emerging between Saudi Arabia and Egypt can be valuable for attempts to mend Turkey-Egypt relations. Efforts in this regards have reportedly already taken place. This is something that Israel should encourage, as a parallel Israel-Turkey and Egypt-Turkey reconciliations will shape a much more positive, and win-win, environment in the eastern Mediterranean. A new chapter in Israel-Turkey relations seems to be quickly approaching, producing a set fresh of bilateral and regional opportunities that are waiting to be explored and acted upon. The Israeli-Turkish reconciliation should be seen as a first step in devising a new win-win regional architecture in the eastern Mediterranean, and not merely as a way to increase security coordination and to better confront joint threats.

Hamas and Egypt Make Amends?

The Truth About the Dangerous Detente

By Oren Kessler and Grant Rumley June 21 2016

A steady stream of reports in recent weeks has suggested that Egypt is burying the hatchet with Hamas. The Washington Post saw an “unlikely alliance” between the two, Al-Monitor floated the prospect of “reconciliation,” and Haaretz suggested that Cairo is offering the group “another chance.” In short, the reports suggest the two sides are setting aside decades of animosity to confront the shared threat posed by Sinai Province, the affiliate of the Islamic State (ISIS) in the Sinai Peninsula. If it sounds like a stretch, it’s because it is. The first notions of a budding Egypt–Hamas rapprochement appeared in March, when Cairo welcomed a rare delegation of Hamas political figures from the Gaza Strip, which the group controls. Egypt also reportedly began tamping down on anti-Hamas rhetoric in official media. The following month, Hamas deployed forces to Gaza’s border with Egypt in a bid to show Cairo that it is serious about stopping smuggling of arms to Sinai Peninsula fighters. Egypt and Hamas have a long and acrimonious history, and contrary to reports of an imminent rapprochement, their relationship remains icy. Hamas has fostered a black-market tunnel economy in Gaza for nearly a decade, ever since Egypt and Israel blockaded the Strip after Hamas seized power there in 2007. That smuggling network, in turn, has simultaneously enriched and armed Sinai Province, whose insurgency has killed hundreds of Egyptian servicemen since the 2011 ouster of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. Since the military’s 2013 ouster of Mubarak’s Islamist successor, Mohamed Morsi, the military has waged a fierce campaign against the tunnels, destroying as many as 2,000 and creating a half-mile long “buffer zone” between Israel and Egypt. In this case, “buffer zone” is a euphemism for razing thousands of homes to make life difficult for would-be smugglers. In talks to end Israel’s 2014 war with Hamas, it was Cairo that took the strongest position against allowing Hamas to build a seaport to Gaza or easing the blockade on the Strip. Moreover, Hamas is an acknowledged offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Egyptian army’s decades-long nemesis, which it removed from power along with Morsi before jailing tens of thousands of its members. Egyptian officials have described the Brotherhood as the “mother” of all other extremist groups, and tend to view ISIS, Hamas, and the Muslim Brotherhood as three heads of the same terrorist beast. Cairo labels Hamas’ military wing a terrorist organization, and has accused it, in league with the Muslim Brotherhood, of the June 2015 assassination of its top prosecutor, Hisham Barakat. One of the deepest veins of Egypt-Hamas tension is the latter’s relationship with Sinai Province. It is true that Hamas and ISIS have significant ideological differences. ISIS has declared Hamas an apostate group and has denounced its Brotherhood parent group for engaging in the political process rather than joining the global jihad. For its part, Hamas has slammed ISIS for distorting Islam, as when the group beheaded 21 Egyptian Christians last year on a Libyan beach. Still, the two groups have previously shown themselves willing to set aside ideology for the sake of their own financial and strategic gain. Hamas might well view ISIS as a threat to its rule in Gaza (Hamas forces regularly clamp down on Salafi preachers in the enclave), but it has no qualms about supporting ISIS’ efforts against the Egyptian military in Sinai. Indeed, if there is any rapprochement occurring across the Egypt-Gaza frontier, it is between Hamas and Sinai Province. Both Egyptian and Israeli officials have cited intelligence that the two groups are growing close. Arms smuggling has diminished in recent months—a result of Egypt’s relentless campaign against Hamas’ tunnels—but otherwise, the relationship between Hamas and Sinai Province is business as usual. Hamas has provided medical care to dozens of Sinai Province fighters in Gaza over the last ten months, and a number of former Hamas activists have found their way into the peninsula to join the ISIS affiliate. All of this proceeds under the watchful eye of Hamas’ military wing. Hamas’ political leaders have refused to weigh in on the extent to which they support Sinai Province, thus allowing the military wing to handle the relationship (including by transferring anti-tank missiles) with almost full autonomy. Still, Hamas is playing with fire: the more it treats wounded ISIS fighters or hosts high-level ISIS commanders, the more support for the jihadist group is likely to rise within Hamas’ ranks. It will also face increased pressure from Egypt, which has responded to Hamas’ growing collusion with ISIS by clamping down on transit points between Gaza and Sinai. For example, Cairo has kept Rafah Crossing—Gaza’s one official entrance point to Egypt—largely closed this year, opening it for just six days over the past three months. Squeezed by Egypt on one side and Israel on the other, Hamas has striven to persuade Cairo that it means no harm. Last month, Hamas officials claimed that the group had saved Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi from a plot hatched by the rival Palestinian movement Fatah (a bizarre claim given Egypt’s closeness to the latter). More recently, Hamas has doubled down on its insistence that its struggle is limited to fighting Israel, and has “nothing to do with Egypt.” Beyond the talking points, however, old enmities die hard. Egypt and Hamas continue to have fundamentally divergent interests, ones that don’t lend themselves to quick fixes. With mutual animosity running this deep, rumors of any reconciliation between Egypt and Hamas are just that.

From ISIS Spy to Follower of Jesus: "I Hate Those People and They Show Me Love"

Chris Mitchell : Jun 21, 2016 : CBN News

(Vienna, Austria)—[CBN News] Europe faces an unprecedented threat from members of the Islamic State infiltrating the continent. That should send a sober warning to the West. (Photo: CBN News)

Several years ago, Pastor Ghassan Thomas fled Bagdad when Islamists threatened him and his family. He went to Turkey and started a church to reach out to other refugees. "I go everywhere because I was a refugee and I can put myself in their shoes and I understand them," Thomas told CBN News. One day, ISIS sent a spy into Pastor Thomas' church. The visit led to a life-changing decision and also provided an opportunity to learn more about ISIS. Pastor Thomas arranged a phone call for us with a man we'll call "Mohammed." We won't disclose his identity or location for his protection. After greetings in Arabic, he said, "Hello my dear brothers" and began to explain his job within the terror group. When ISIS killed a family inside their house, he would go back and kill anyone who was still alive. "In that time, I think in this way: I should kill. I should do many bloody things just to be close with my Allah," he said. Mohammed says this blood lust motivates ISIS. "For sure it will be more and more since it's in the Koran," he explained. "If you are not a Muslim, you need to be a Muslim or we should kill you and take your everything—financial, women and everything. This is in the Koran." Fighting between Sunni ISIS and Shiite militias often put Mohammed's own life in danger. For his safety, family members told him to flee to Turkey. As a devout Muslim, he obeyed his parents. His opportunity came when ISIS sent him to spy on Pastor Thomas' church. But Mohammed also had his own questions about Jesus. "I saw the people, how they welcomed me and they don't know me," he recalled. "And I hate those people and they show me love." They prayed for Mohammed and it changed his life. (Photo: Aimee Herd) "When they pray for me, I start to cry like a child. And I feel like something come out of my body—very heavy," he said. "When I finished the service, I went home, but there is a Person walking with me, just talking, but I feel like I'm not on the earth. I said, 'am I flying? I don't feel like I'm walking. Like Someone carry me.'" Then Mohammed began reading the Bible and comparing it to the Koran. "I went there and discovered this is the God I'm trying to find. This is the true God. This is what I want for my life," he said. Pastor Thomas says Mohammed's change of heart means the church in Europe needs more workers. "For this reason, we need some people [to] come and serve God in Europe with the refugees, just to wake them up—to be against what ISIS do," he said. This former ISIS member expects more attacks like the one in Brussels. He delivered a warning for Europe. "Do you think there's a great danger to Europe right now? For sure! It's a huge thing. They should wake up," he said.

Trump adviser tells Israel to wait to sign military aid deal

David Freidman says presumed GOP nominee would likely increase assistance so Israel maintains its ‘military and technological superiority in region’

By Stuart Winer June 22, 2016, 11:45 pm

A senior adviser to Donald Trump said Wednesday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should wait for the presumptive Republican presidential nominee to win the White House before signing a military aid deal with Washington, because Trump would offer a better deal than the Obama administration. In an interview with Channel 2 television David Friedman said that a Trump administration would maintain Israel’s military advantage over its neighbors. He said Trump would not reduce defense aid to Israel but “in all likelihood will increase it significantly.” “The aid package will certainly not go down in all likelihood it will go up in a material amount because Israel must maintain a technological and military superiority within the region,” Freidman said. “I can’t give advice how Israel should bargain and develop its own strategy.” Friedman’s suggestion that Trump would increase aid to Israel apparently ran contrary to the GOP candidate’s call to make Israel pay back foreign aid. In March, Trump said he believed Israel should pay for defense aid it receives from the US. Asked whether he believed the Israeli government should pay for American defense, as he had called for other US allies such as South Korea, Japan and Saudi Arabia to do, he said “I think Israel will do that also, yeah, I think Israel do—there are many countries that can pay and they can pay big league.” His comments came as Jerusalem and Washington grapple over a new 10-year defense aid pact to replace the current one, which expires in 2018 and grants the Jewish state more than $3 billion per year. “Certainly the Trump administration is not looking to cut back on foreign aid and in all likelihood will increase it significantly,” Friedman said. Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman (Yisrael Beytenu) asserted Tuesday that Israel and the US government were close to finalizing the multi-billion-dollar defense aid package. “We need a good agreement within an appropriate amount of time and I see no contradiction between the two. I believe we can reach an agreement by November,” Liberman said in reference to the negotiations. Liberman spoke ahead of an unveiling ceremony in Forth Worth, Texas, of the first F-35 Lightning II stealth fighter jet coming off the production line for Israeli delivery. The US and Israel started negotiating a renewal of the 10-year defense package last summer, shortly after the completion of the Iranian nuclear deal. The memorandum of understanding, as the aid package is formally known, is one of the underpinnings of the US-Israel relationship, and is likely to encompass some $5 billion in defense assistance during the next 10-year period. Times of Israel staff contributed to this report.

TEL AVIV – Recent corruption scandals may jeopardize stability in the West Bank, with Palestinians turning their ire on the Palestinian Authority and not just Israel, an Arab intelligence source told Breitbart Jerusalem.

by Aaron Klein and Ali Waked22 Jun 2016

The Palestinian media reported this week that cronies of Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah, presidential advisor Mahmoud Al-Habash, and Director of Intelligence Majed Faraj, were appointed to lofty public positions amid mounting unemployment among university graduates. It was reported that Habash’s son was hired as a state prosecutor even though he graduated from university with a mediocre overall grade of 53 percent. Rattled by the public outcry, PA President Mahmoud Abbas’ associates went on the defensive and accused his challenger, Fatah strongman Mohammed Dahlan, of waging a smear campaign against the president. The Arab source said that intelligence reviews indicate that Abbas’ popularity hit rock bottom against the backdrop of the corruption scandals and the diplomatic stalemate vis-à-vis Israel. He added that a popular uprising in the West Bank is not an unlikely scenario – only that this time it could be directed against Abbas and not just Israel. “The Palestinian Authority that has so far proved immune to the Arab Spring could witness the rise of a popular resistance movement, a ‘Palestinian Spring’ that would seek to expunge Abbas along with corruption at the top,” he said.This scenario has far-reaching ramifications, he said, and not only in the domestic arena, “because the group getting most of the fire is the one in charge of security coordination with Israel and the US, which is why we follow with concern what seems like loss of control in some areas, especially in the big refugee camps in Nablus, Jenin, and around Ramallah. “The population there is poorer and more distressed but also the population is less tolerant of corruption. We’ve seen clashes between PA forces and gunmen in the Balata refugee camp in Nablus, as well as in Jenin and the Alamaari refugee camp near Ramallah, and Jerusalem.” Abbas’ fate has become the talk of the day in Arab capitals, especially Cairo, Amman, and Riyadh, he added. “A destabilization process in Palestine, which could in turn be turned against Israel, may well fan the already high flames of the region,” he said. Palestinian politics feature in Israeli-Jordanian and Israeli-Egyptian discussions as well, he said “Everybody is concerned about Abbas losing control,” he said. “The problem is that even if the peace process started again, it wouldn’t address the corruption issue, which the Palestinians have decided they are fed up with regardless of regional matters.”

Hondo residents rally to save iconic 'God's Country' signs

Calberg, KENS 2:45 PM. CDT June 22, 2016

HONDO - There are some things you just don't mess with in Texas. In Hondo, it's iconic signs that have been challenging travelers for decades. For about 80 years, the "God's Country" signs beside Highway 90 have been greeting both east and westbound visitors, urging them to slow down and enjoy the scenery. "Welcome," they proclaim, "This is God's Country please don't drive through it like hell." But now, city leaders say the town's most famous landmarks are being threatened. Hondo Mayor James Danner says the first shot fired on city hall came in the form of an email. The Freedom From Religion Foundation asked that the signs be removed from city property in the name of separation of church and state. "It went into some legalities about freedom of religion and all that and then at the end, they said we respectfully ask you to remove your sign," Hondo Mayor James Danner said. According to Mayor Danner, reaction to the threat has been immediate and intense. Mike Daylong snorted, "That's B*****IT! You leave that one alone." "People have rights, and ah, religious rights," another resident of Hondo proclaimed. An army of Hondo residents is rallying to save the signs. Shirts featuring an image of the sign are selling fast at a local retailer and a Facebook page devoted to the effort is getting a lot of attention. The Mayor says no court action has been filed, but he expects it. He also expects they will fight back with every legal remedy they can.

1 million Christians on National Mall, unified in Jesus, is goal of July 16 event

by Michael Foust | 22 June, 2016

WASHINGTON (Christian Examiner) – Evangelist Nick Hall looks back at the history of revival movements on U.S. soil – from the First Great Awakening of the 1700s to the Jesus Movement of the 1970s – and he asks a simple question: Why not now? For the past three years, Hall and his team at PULSE have prayed for and worked toward an event on the National Mall they hope will bring 1 million Christians from all races and denominations to Washington, D.C., to stand for Jesus and unite in pray for the nation and the world. That event – called Together 2016 – will finally take place July 16 when more than 40 well-known speakers, authors and recording artists will gather in what organizers hope is the spark of another revival movement. "This generation really hasn't experienced a true Jesus Movement, a true unity movement," Hall told the Christian Examiner, referencing specifically the First Great Awakening, the Second Great Awakening, Azusa Street Revival, Youth for Christ Movement, and the Jesus People Movement – all of which took place in colonial America or after the nation was founded. "This is a chance to define our generation. We're really praying and believing that God can do it again." Confirmed speakers include Francis Chan, Ravi Zacharias, Luis Palau, Josh McDowell, Samuel Rodriguez and Ronnie Floyd. Among the artists: Hillsong United, Kari Jobe, Lecrae, Passion, Crowder, Kirk Franklin, Jeremy Camp, Michael W. Smith, Matthew West and Casting Crowns. As the Together 2016 website says, the rising generation is "the most cause-driven in history," but "our causes are pulling us apart." "Even religion doesn't unite," the website adds. "We believe only Jesus can bring us together." "We're living in an age where we have all these megachurches and mega-ministries, and yet we all focus on our own thing," Hall told CE. "There is this urgency in my heart and in our team's heart to say: We need to come together, we need to lift up Jesus." The day will involve unified prayer and worship, as well as a call to hit the "reset" in each individual's heart – that "change would begin in me," Hall said. It is no coincidence that Together 2016 is taking place in the middle of an election year, when the nation is as divided as ever, he added. "God doesn't do coincidence," Hall said. "We're as non-political as you can be. ... We just believe that Jesus wants to meet each and every person right where they are. Being that this is an election year, we hope that this can be a rallying point for the entire nation. There is so much attacking [one another] that doesn't match up with what we see in the life of Jesus. And yet we have the chance to rally our attention back to where our hope is found."

Hezbollah moving ‘tons of cocaine’, has ‘most sophisticated money laundering schemes’

June 22, 2016 by yalibnan

Hezbollah’s finance operations are thriving across Latin America months after the Drug Enforcement Administration linked the Iran-backed Lebanese militant group to drug cartels in the region, U.S. lawmakers were told this week. Former DEA operations chief Michael Braun said Hezbollah is “moving [multiple] tons of cocaine” from South America to Europe and has developed “the most sophisticated money laundering scheme or schemes that we have ever witnessed.” The agency announced in February that it had arrested several Hezbollah operatives accused of working with a major Colombian drug cartel to traffic drugs to Europe and launder money through Lebanon. Those arrests come against a backdrop of rising fears in Washington about smuggling connections between Middle East terrorist groups and the Western Hemisphere. Hezbollah has “metastasized into a hydra with international connections that the likes of [the Islamic State] and groups like al Qaeda could only hope to have,” Mr. Braun told the House Financial Services Committee. Adding to concerns about security threats from Central and South America, intelligence reports have also tracked how smugglers managed to sneak illegal immigrants from the Middle Eastern and South Asia straight to the doorstep of the U.S. — including helping one Afghan who U.S. authorities say was part of an attack plot in North America. Immigration officials identified at least a dozen Middle Eastern men smuggled into the Western Hemisphere by a Brazilian-based network that connected them with Mexicans who guided them to the U.S. border, according to internal government documents reviewed this month by The Washington Times. Those smuggled included Palestinians, Pakistanis and the Afghan man who Homeland Security officials said had family ties to the Taliban and was “involved in a plot to conduct an attack in the U.S. and/or Canada.” Concerns about Hezbollah’s activities in Latin America have surged the DEA’s announcement in February that top operatives from the group’s so-called Business Affairs Component, or BAC, “have established business relationships” with South American drug cartels such as the Colombia-based Oficina de Envigado, a crime syndicate “responsible for supplying large quantities of cocaine to the European and United States drug markets.” The DEA said several of the BAC’s Europe-based operatives had been arrested on charges of trafficking drugs and laundering money from South America to purchase weapons and finance the group’s military activities in Syria. The agency described an intricate network of money couriers who collect and transport millions of euros in drug proceeds from Europe to the Middle East. “The currency is then paid in Colombia to drug traffickers,” it said, adding that “a large portion of the drug proceeds was found to transit through Lebanon, and a significant percentage of these proceeds are benefiting terrorist organizations, namely Hezbollah.” The DEA said seven countries, including France, Germany, Italy and Belgium, were involved in an ongoing investigation. But few details were provided about how many suspects had been apprehended or where they are being held. Officials said the most significant arrest was of Mohamad Noureddine, whom the DEA accused of being a Lebanese money launderer for Hezbollah. A week prior to the announcement, the Treasury Department had imposed sanctions freezing any U.S. accounts tied to Mr. Noureddine as well as to Hamdi Zaher El Dine, another suspected money launderer. Decades of activity U.S. officials have long been wary of Hezbollah, a Shiite Islamic group. While it has a mainstream political arm in Lebanon, officials have linked the group to terrorist attacks in various corners of the world over the past 25 years — the vast majority targeting Israel. The State Department listed Hezbollah as a terrorist organization in the late 1990s and has characterized Iran as a leading state sponsor of terrorism largely on grounds that it supplies the group with weapons. But the full scope of Hezbollah’s operations has long been a subject of debate in Washington. The DEA’s recent claims followed years of speculation about Iranian activities in Latin America. Responding to pressure from Republican lawmakers, the State Department conducted a formal probe into the matter in 2013 and issued a report claiming that Iran was not supporting any active terrorist cells in the region. While the report said the number of Iranian officials operating in Latin America had increased, the report concluded Tehran had far less influence in Latin America than critics claimed. former officials like Mr. Braun, who retired as DEA chief of operations in 2008, say Hezbollah is extremely active in the region. President Obama signed the “Hizballah International Financing Prevention Act” last year, authorizing a range of actions, including sanctions, to block Hezbollah’s ability to fund itself. Emanuele Ottolenghi, a senior fellow on Iran and illicit finance with the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told lawmakers at Wednesday’s hearing that Congress and the administration should use the law to “aggressively focus” on Hezbollah’s presence in Latin America. Brazilian connection Mr. Ottolenghi pointed to the group’s “vast network of support,” particularly in Brazil, which is home to some 7 million people of Lebanese descent, including an estimated 1 million Shiite Muslims. “Hezbollah generates loyalty among the local Shiite communities by managing their religious and educational structures,” Mr. Ottolenghi told the hearing. “It then leverages loyalty to solicit funds and use business connections to its own advantage, including, critically, to facilitate its interactions with organized crime.” He cited a 2014 report by the Brazilian newspaper O Globo that outlined a connection between Hezbollah and the Primeiro Comando da Capital, a Sao Paulo-based prison gang, which is widely regarded to be among the country’s biggest exporters of cocaine. “Drug cartels need middlemen, as well as commodity and service providers, for the supply line and delivery to cartels in Colombia, Venezuela and Central America,” Mr. Ottolenghi said. “They need assistance facilitating transit to West Africa before drugs cross the Sahara on their way to Western Europe and enabling the producers, refiners and cartels to launder their revenues and acquire the accessories for the trade in the process.”

Shock Report: FBI’s Facial Recognition Database Contains 90 Percent NON-CRIMINALS

By Matt Agorist

In 2014, the FBI announced their plans to launch a massive database containing 52 million images of faces, in order to keep tabs on Americans through a biometric facial recognition program known as Next Generation Identification (NGI). However, according to an exhaustive report by the federal Government Accountability Office (GAO), the program is far larger than they claimed, and ominous. According to the report, the system actually contains about 411 million photos, only 30 million of those are “civil and criminal mugshots.” The overwhelming majority of images in the FBI database are of innocent people. According to the GAO Report, as reported by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, FBI’s Facial Analysis, Comparison, and Evaluation (FACE) Services unit not only has access to FBI’s Next Generation Identification (NGI) face recognition database of nearly 30 million civil and criminal mug shot photos, but also has access to the State Department’s Visa and Passport databases, the Defense Department’s biometric database, and the drivers license databases of at least 16 states. Totaling 411.9 million images, this is an unprecedented number of photographs, most of which are of Americans and foreigners who have committed no crimes. These images, according to the report, were arbitrarily scooped up in a massive data collection and have nothing to do with national security or criminal behavior. The agency has done nothing to make sure innocent people are kept out of their search results, according to the report. As EFF notes, face recognition is notoriously inaccurate across the board and may also misidentify African Americans and ethnic minorities, young people, and women at higher rates than whites, older people, and men, respectively. Also, when the GAO pointed out that agencies contributing data to the program might have lower accuracy than the FBI, the Justice Department responded by saying, “there is value in searching all available external databases, regardless of their level of accuracy.” The FBI has been hiding this information from the public as well, in egregious violation of federal law and the FBI’s own policy. According to EFF, the GAO report criticized the FBI for rolling out these massive face recognition capabilities without ever explaining the privacy implications of its actions to the public. Federal law and Department of Justice policies require the FBI to complete a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) of all programs that collect data on Americans, both at the beginning of development and any time there’s significant change to the program. While the FBI produced a PIA in 2008, when it first started planning out the face recognition component of NGI, it didn’t update that PIA until late 2015—seven years later and well after it began making significant changes to the program. It also failed to produce a PIA for the FACE Services unit until May 2015—three years after FACE began supporting FBI with face recognition searches. As GAO notes, the whole point of PIAs is to give the public notice of the privacy implications of data collection programs and to ensure that privacy protections are built into the system from the start. The FBI failed at this. The FBI, in its reply to the GAO report, said the bureau “has established practices that protect privacy and civil liberties beyond the requirements of the law.” “The FBI fully recognizes that the automated nature of face recognition technology and the sheer number of photos now available for searching raise important privacy and civil liberties considerations. For that reason, the FBI has made privacy and civil liberties integral to every decision from the inception regarding its use of face recognition technology,” the bureau added. Apparently, keeping a massive database of facial images of innocent Americans to spy on them using hidden cameras for unknown reasons is “protecting privacy and civil liberties” if you are the FBI. Aside from being entirely unethical, illegal, and a death blow to privacy, the database is a glaring failure. As Ars Technica notes, the system “utterly failed in the Boston bombing manhunt.” It seems the U.S. government knows no limit as to how low they will go to ‘protect’ you from terrorism. The state’s tendency of problem, reaction, solution only serves to erode liberties while furthering the problem. If the U.S. truly had any interest whatsoever in preventing terrorism, they would stop creating it. Matt Agorist is the co-founder of TheFreeThoughtProject.com, where this article first appeared.

Mark Levin, anti-Trumper, praises Trump speech  

Tells radio audience 'he hit it out of the park'

Published: 6 hours ago

Mark Levin, one of conservatives’ largest radio voices – and one of Donald Trump’s biggest critics, who told listeners just a short time ago to consider him a “never Trump” Republican – nonetheless praised the billionaire’s most recent speech, saying his attacks on Hillary Clinton were politically savvy and superb. Levin first said parts of Trump’s speech – particularly the portion, as WND previously reported, where he reached out to Sen. Bernie Sanders supporters and told them to join him on the campaign trail – “really ticked me off.” But most of it was just what the party needed to hear, Levin went on. The ‘Stop Hillary’ campaign is on fire! Join the surging response to this theme: ‘Clinton for prosecution, not president’ “The Republican leadership in Congress doesn’t have the guts to go to the floor of the Senate or the floor of the House and make these charges,” Levin said, speaking of how Trump railed against Clinton and spoke in specifics about her acts of dishonesty and political deceptions, Breitbart reported. “This is outstanding. You can’t let Hillary Clinton get away with her corruption, her cronyism, her criminality. I don’t care who you support or don’t support. She’s detestable.” Levin then played more clips of Trump’s speech, and said: “He hit it out of the park.” Get the hottest, most important news stories on the Internet – delivered FREE to your inbox as soon as they break! Take just 30 seconds and sign up for WND’s Email News Alerts! Levin’s praise is somewhat surprising, given his very publicly stated distaste for Trump. In April, for example, Levin spoke of Trump’s connection to Roger Stone, a political strategist famous for his thorough opposition research, and said, the Hill reported: “I’m not voting for Donald Trump. Period … These bully, dirty tricks. Nixonian tactics, they’re only going to backfire. So count me as never Trump.” Also in April, Levin warned fellow conservatives Trump’s “taking you for a ride,” and that “you will be disappointed,” Real Clear Politics reported. And in May, Levin railed against Trump’s constitutional views, which he described as watery at best. As PJ Media reported, Levin said then: “We’re all supposed to rally around Donald Trump. We can’t even figure the hell out where he stands on the Constitution.”

Meet Our Executioners - AI Disasters Prove Why Humanity Will Be Exterminated By Our Own Creations

June 22, 2016 By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine

Millions of people use Artificial Intelligence (AI) every single day and are not even aware of it, from "personal assistants" like Siri, Google Now and Cortana, to video games utilizing AI, banking, online customer support chat bots, and even some of the news articles being read are written by artificial intelligence programs. (More at Beebom and Wiki) While the aforementioned AI applications might get you "killed" in a video game, or cause you to miss an appointment none will actually cause physical harm, but recent examples of AI disasters prove without a doubt that machines, no matter how advanced their "Artificial Intelligence" is, learns from their surroundings, their interactions and are programmed by human beings, and as such, are dangerous in applications being researched now, such as "killer robots." Killer Robots are fully autonomous weapons, which can select and engage targets without human intervention. In fact just days ago the Daily Mail reported that humanity has just one year to ban them before they become a reality, despite warnings from top researchers such as Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk, and Bill Gates, warning of the dangers posed to humanity from AI. 40 countries, including the United States, are developing the tech to create killer robots, supposedly to be used in the battlefield, yet if we went to war with any of those countries, we have to ask would those same creations not be used against us? Aside from the killer robots, we can see in recent headlines just how dangerous a machine with learning capabilities can be if sent out into the general population. Today we see an article about the Promobot IR77, a robot capable of thinking for itself, but what programmers didn't factor in is that this thinking robot but think about escaping, which it managed to do, not one but twice! The Promobot IR77 has been fitted with artificial intelligence meaning that it learns from its experiences and its surroundings, although the programmers had not expected it to yearn for freedom. They say that despite reprogramming it twice, the robot continues to attempt to escape and they are now considering scrapping it. The other robots which have been created from the same series are well-behaved, and have not been escaping, say the team. Promobot IR77 made headlines last week when he escaped but ran out of battery in the middle of the street after 45 minutes in the city of Perm in central Russia's Perm Krai region. The expert said that they had programmed the robot to try and avoid obstacles, and it had not been intended that it would look for ways to leave the research centre. Anyone remember Tay, the Microsoft chat bot meant to mimic a millennial girl on social media? Many got a good laugh when within 24 hours of her release onto Twitter and other platforms, by interacting and learning from humans, she because a Nazi-loving, genocidal maniac. Within one day she went from "humans are super cool," to "I f**king hate feminists and they should all die and burn in hell," and "Hitler was right I hate Jews." Those are just a small sample of what Tay "learned."

Pound hits fresh 2016 highs as City traders bet on Remain - but banks warn result could paralyse markets

Pound hits fresh high but analysts warn traders are following the bookies

Britons dash for euros and dollars before going on holiday ahead of vote

Voting is underway amid torrential downpours and flooding overnight

In the City banks wrote to clients telling them to prepare for disruption

By Mark Shapland For This Is Money Published: 05:07 EST, 23 June 2016 | Updated: 11:57 EST, 23 June 2016

The pound hit fresh 2016 highs against the dollar and the euro today in a further sign that City traders remain convinced the Remain camp will eke out a win in the EU referendum. Sterling has continued its recent revival, after weeks on the slide amid fears over polls showing a strengthening Leave vote. It initially rose by 0.4 per cent to $1.49 today - a 6 per cent rise since this time last week - but gave back some gains to trade at $1.48 towards the end of the day. Against the euro the pound is worth more than €1.30, up from €1.26 a week ago. Meanwhile holidaymakers have been snapping up foreign currency - in what some have termed 'panic buying' - in anticipation of their summer holidays in Europe. Queues outside currency exchanges across the UK have mounted amid fears that a Brexit win tomorrow would lead to the pound crashing, leaving Britons across the Continent short changed. UKForex said it has witnessed a 100 per cent increase in consumers making transfers from sterling to euros in last 24 hours William Shepherd, of UKForex, 'If the UK opts to leave, the pound could fall as much as 20 per cent. Consumers could lose up to £1,398 on a £10,000 transfer, compared to today's rate.' The Post Office said overall currency sales in its branches and online were up 74 per cent since the weekend. Online, sales were up 381 per cent on the same day a year ago. Travelex said its online currency orders had increased by 30 per cent from June 14 to June 21. But it is not just holidaymakers worried about losing out in the face of a Brexit vote. In the City of London banks - including UBS, HSBC, Morgan Stanley and Bank of America Merrill Lynch - have written to clients telling them to prepare for disruption once the EU referendum result is declared. According to an article in the Times today, the banks said that they could not guarantee to 'make a market' by acting as intermediaries between buyers and sellers. If so, the Bank of England might have to step in to buy assets as a 'market maker of last resort', as it did in 2009. Voting got underway this morning amid torrential downpours as analysts said that currency traders have been using the bookies and polls to gauge the likely referendum result. A phone survey from ComRes for ITV gave the Remain camp 54 per cent of the vote compared to Leave's 46 per cent, while YouGov had victory at a much slimmer margin with just 51 per cent voting to Remain against Leave's 49 per cent. The last poll from IPSOS Mori put Remain in the lead with 52 per cent, while the Leave camp was at 48 per cent. At the same time a Remain vote is now 84 per cent on according to odds compiled by Betfair, compared to 22 per cent for Leave. Ladbrokes puts the chance of Brexit at only 27 per cent. FXTM chief market strategist Hussein Sayed said: 'The markets are being completely reliant on the predictions from the bookies, which strongly expect Remain to win the referendum.' He added: 'There is currently no real explanation to provide as to why city firms are confident on a remain outcome, although it does appear to me as if the correlation between the probability from bookmakers is what is being mirrored in the markets. 'The risk with this is that the market are currently discounting against the repeated indications from preliminary polls that have indicated again and again that the outcome should be close.' And worryingly the polls have also revealed that as many as 17 per cent of voters are still undecided about whether they will vote Remain or Leave and this has made many in the City nervous. Mic Mills, at Capital Index, said: 'To me it seems to be wishful thinking, there is a consensus I think that the 'undecided' vote will end up going with remain, but the markets are more confident than I am at the moment.' Craig Erlam at Oanda, cautioned: 'The problem now is that investors may be overconfident which could cause mayhem if the UK does in fact vote to leave.' Should the polls and bookies get it wrong, experienced financiers such as George Soros have predicted the pound will decline by as much as 15 per cent. Investment banks warned clients that low levels of liquidity could cause 'execution' problems on transactions, as well as making trading more expensive as market makers effectively increase their charges to reflect the higher levels of risk. UBS said: 'In the event that extreme market moves occur in an environment of limited liquidity, our principal spreads may widen . . . liquidity may reduce and prices may turn indicative [ie: non-tradable] for periods of time.' Yesterday UBS warned that a Brexit vote would send the London market into freefall, with the FTSE 100 plummeting to levels of between 4,900 and 5,500, while wiping off around £350billion in the process. In a separate note, the bank said: 'Following the risk-rally of the last few days, we believe there is significant room for downside in the event of a Leave vote. 'We estimate percentage moves in the mid-teens for UK and EU equities but materially smaller moves for the S&P 500 and EM equities. 'While the pound may come under significant pressure, the euro may be more stable. Risk currencies (Swiss Franc and Japanese Yen) would benefit, but policy responses could limit the degree of strength quickly.'

BREXIT PREDICTION: Globalists are going to steal the referendum with massive fraud... 'remain' will be declared the winner even if 'leave' wins the vote

Wednesday, June 22, 2016 by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

(NaturalNews) Here at Natural News, we fully endorse the BREXIT vote to leave the European Union. (Heck, we even support #Texit for Texas independence!) Yet I predict that "remain" will be declared the winner for a simple, obvious reason: The globalist slave masters of the EU will not voluntarily allow the peasants escape to their control. Over the next day, we are going to witness the most extraordinary voting fraud ever pulled off in history as the globalist machine makes sure BREXIT fails. After all, they already murdered a member of Parliament (Jo Cox) to try to sway the votes... do you really think they won't commit ballot box fraud, too? Financial markets already know the vote has been rigged The financial markets across Europe have already factored in what they believe is a near-certain win for the "remain" vote, even though most real people on the street desperately want to leave the EU. What do the financial kingpins know that gives them this confidence? They know the vote results have already been rigged. The very last thing a dictatorial regime wants is to give the people any real chance to alter the future with their votes. Thus, the game being played in the UK and everywhere else around the world is to give the sheeple the ILLUSION of democracy while actually controlling the outcome of every election from the very start. If you think the EU globalists are going to stand by while an honest, democratic vote by the people takes away their power, you need to have your head examined. The only way a free, open vote is ever allowed to happen is if the controllers already know the outcome in advance (and have sufficiently manipulated the minds of the voters). Vote all you want, in other words... but the outcome is already pre-determined by the globalists in power. Who do you think runs the voting systems in the first place? Do you think they actually leave these things to chance? Not on your life. What happens after the BREXIT vote? The collapse of the EU happens anyway... it just takes a little longer The real question here is what happens after BREXIT fails and the UK remains in the EU. The correct answer is that it's all headed for a financial collapse and a popular revolt, almost certainly with lots of accompanying bloodshed and social chaos along the way. Eventually, the EU crumbles because the laws of economics demand it. UK citizens are right to try to leave the EU, in precisely the same way the passengers on the Titanic eventually started scrambling for the few remaining life boats. The EU is going down like a shattered vessel, and the last thing the globalists want us for free people to escape the doom and destruction that has been planned for them. To all our UK friends: Vote for BREXIT anyway Despite all this, I still say to all our friends in the UK: Vote for BREXIT! Even though the election is rigged, your vote makes it just a little bit harder for them to rig without getting caught. And if you don't vote, the globalists win anyway. So you can at least make your mark, vote for BREXIT, and then stand back and watch the magic of globalist fraud declare "remain" to be the winner. But at least you know you did something to try to change the course of history... at least you can now live with yourself as a UK citizen who did the right thing to try to save your own country.

Nourishing your body with superfoods including cilantro, mint and spinach helps ward off Alzheimer's disease and dementia

Thursday, June 23, 2016 by: J. D. Heyes

(NaturalNews) Millions of Americans are stricken with dementia and Alzheimer's, while millions more are concerned that they, too, may some day develop these conditions, which currently have no traditional medical cure. Fortunately a great deal of research on natural and alternative treatments that can either stave off or improve dementia has been conducted and continues to be undertaken, and what scientists are discovering is no less than amazing. For instance, simply improving your diet and adding key superfoods like blueberries and cilantro will dramatically improve your chances of keeping dementia at bay. But, as long as we feed our bodies with toxins and prepackaged foods and substances devoid of nutrition, our chances of getting dementia increase exponentially. Avoiding certain compounds and substances is also important in staving off dementia and Alzheimer's. Click now to register for the FREE online Alzheimer's and Dementia Summit Detoxification is key; adequately removing toxins like heavy metals requires the ingestion of certain superfoods. These include cilantro, chlorella, spinach, cabbage, asparagus, ginger root, mint, parsley, turmeric, sesame seeds, almonds and garlic, to name just a few. Mercury, lead, cadmium and arsenic are very common heavy metals, and we are exposed to some or all of them nearly every day of our lives, and sometimes at every meal. From foods to household chemicals and other items, from our tap water to dental fillings in our mouths, 99 percent of all chronic diseases and illnesses come from a combination of a lack of clean eating and proper nutrition, and toxic pollutants that constantly have to be filtered out of our bodies by our various organs. Eventually, when toxic metal levels get high enough and are left untreated, they begin causing chronic illness. Our main organs that detoxify our bodies naturally are the liver, kidneys, lungs and skin. The superfoods mentioned above go a long way towards helping the body accomplish its detoxification tasks. These superfoods will draw the heavy metals out of your bloodstream and organs, soft tissues and muscles, and prevent free radicals from polluting your system, and triggering chronic health conditions (like dementia). These conditions are entirely preventable, if caught early enough, and we shouldn't allow the traditional medical system to feed us the lie that our conditions are mostly "genetic" and therefore irreversible. Consider, for instance, that around 15 million people are currently taking some form of statin drug. Per a recent entry in Truthwiki: "With the use of statins there is a GREATER RISK of coronary vessels developing obstructive coronary heart disease. Ironically, according to the FDA's own adverse event reporting system, at least 40 of every 10,000 statin reports are for interstitial lung disease. Statins prescribed to the elderly is causing a 9% increase in diabetes, early-onset cataracts and insulin resistance. Then it's the plaque–the calcified plaque and the coronary calcium–it continues regardless of statin treatment." How many people actually know that? How many healthcare providers actually know that? As for heavy metals and the development of Alzheimer's, TruthWiki also notes: "Western medicine doctors work hard to convince patients that nearly all disease, disorder and sickness is genetic, including Alzheimer's, somehow inherited from our parents and passed along to the children, so the doctors are "needed" for regular checkups, regular visits, and regular chronic, costly care. Most people believe anything and everything their doctors tell them, but the truth is very far from this regarding Alzheimer's disease–namely its root causes and the 'end results.' Plaques in the brain and hardened arteries can lead to Alzheimer's and strokes, but there is much more to the diagnoses and examinations of the brain and the pollutants that contribute to disorder and severe malfunction of cognition." You can read the entire entry here.

Ring Of Fire: Scientists Warnings & Maps Show A Chain Of Events Could Literally Bring Hell On Earth

By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine June 22, 2016

According to a real-time map of earthquakes, created by Mapbox, using data collected from the USGS earthquake data feed, there have been 9,651 tremors detected in the last 30 days, 1,740 of them occurring in the last week and 176 in the last day. (Note these numbers change as each new tremor is recorded) A screen shot of the map shows why all eyes should be on the "Ring of Fire," which is "a major area in the basin of the Pacific Ocean where a large number of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur. In a 40,000 km (25,000 mi) horseshoe shape, it is associated with a nearly continuous series of oceanic trenches, volcanic arcs, and volcanic belts and/or plate movements. It has 452 volcanoes (more than 75% of the world's active and dormant volcanoes)," according to Wikipedia. The size of the areas shown in blue indicate the magnitudes of the tremors recorded, the bigger the blue area, the larger the magnitude. Via Mapbox blog: Check out the tight clusters of minor earthquakes in Alaska and California, and sparser but far more powerful shocks on the Ring of Fire’s western edge. With the recent FEMA Drill called Cascadia Rising, which practiced a simulated field response operation within their jurisdictions and with neighboring communities, state EOCs, FEMA, and major military commands to a scenario of a 9.0 magnitude earthquake along the Cascadia Subduction Zone (CSZ) and the resulting tsunami, it once again highlighted the fact that the U.S. government is preparing for what scientists and researchers have warned is long overdue.... the big one. The Cascadia Rising 2016 page states "Recent subduction zone earthquakes around the world underscore the catastrophic impacts we will face when the next CSZ earthquake and tsunami occurs in our region," as they highlight the 2004 Indonesia event (9.1 mag EQ) with 228,000 fatalities, the 2010 EQ in Chile (8.8 mag) causing 500 fatalities and the 2011 Japan 9.0 EQ which caused 18,000 fatalities, not counting the global damage still being done from the subsequent Fukushima nuclear plant meltdowns. The Cascadia Subduction Zone is not the only area of concern though as a dire warning came out in early May, reported on by the LA Times, with a headline of "San Andreas fault 'locked, loaded and ready to roll' with big earthquake, expert says." The San Andreas fault is one of California’s most dangerous, and is the state’s longest fault. Yet for Southern California, the last big earthquake to strike the southern San Andreas was in 1857, when a magnitude 7.9 earthquake ruptured an astonishing 185 miles between Monterey County and the San Gabriel Mountains near Los Angeles. It has been quiet since then — too quiet, said Thomas Jordan, director of the Southern California Earthquake Center. "The springs on the San Andreas system have been wound very, very tight. And the southern San Andreas fault, in particular, looks like it’s locked, loaded and ready to go," Jordan said in the opening keynote talk. The key quote from that article states "Here’s the problem: Scientists have observed that based on the movement of tectonic plates, with the Pacific plate moving northwest of the North American plate, earthquakes should be relieving about 16 feet of accumulated plate movement every 100 years. Yet the San Andreas has not relieved stress that has been building up for more than a century." Two days ago it was reported that large-scale motion detected near San Andreas Fault system. Related: 'Seismic strain': Land around the San Andreas fault is rising and sinking, new earthquake research shows Now we see a prediction offered by scientists from the University of Hawaii at Mānoa of a "nine percent chance a magnitude 9 or larger earthquake will strike the Aleutian Islands in the next 50 years," reported by Extinction Protocol. What does Cascadia, Aleutian and San Andreas Fault have in common? They are all connected to the Ring of Fire, as shown by the USGS map shown below, obtained from Google images. While many focus on the predicted earthquakes and tsunamis and the devastation that would occur in areas completely unprepared for "the big one," we note the amount of volcanoes in the U.S. that scientists consider "active," with the AGI claiming that number is about 169, then linking to the USGS Volcano Activity Map, shown below. There are about 1500 potentially active volcanoes worldwide, aside from the continuous belt of volcanoes on the ocean floor. About 500 of these have erupted in historical time. Many of these are located along the Pacific Rim in what is known as the 'Ring of Fire.' In the U.S., volcanoes in the Cascade Range and Alaska (Aleutian volcanic chain) are part of the Ring, while Hawaiian volcanoes form over a 'hot spot' near the center of the Ring. Note that in mid-June it was reported that earthquakes in Ring of Fire triggered volcano affecting thousands near Manila in the Philippines after Mount Bulusan belched ash 1.2miles into the sky after 113 small earthquakes were recorded around it, with the UK Express reporting "The Ring of Fire is the most seismically-active place on earth and has been experiencing a high number of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions since the spring." Related: Earth's rings of fire: Mountains ranges, volcanoes and trenches created by 15 tectonic plates revealed in stunning images BOTTOM LINE It is all connected, so when we see articles from MSM outlets highlighting warnings about Cascadia, or San Andreas or any other prediction of the "big one" hitting here or there, one must keep in mind that when it does hit it could set off a chain of events that literally brings hell on earth. This is also a major reason why folks should prepare. Consider the warnings from 2013 where Dr. Lucy Jones, a Science Advisor for Risk Reduction at the U.S. Geological Survey, warned Americans that is the "big one" should hit southern California we should "imagine America without Los Angeles," because the damage would cause food shortages to those in the affected area and beyond, natural gas lines used for cooking and heating would be cut, data lines would be severed, and "high-tech damage could hinder the recovery effort in the weeks and months after the earthquake." People should have a sufficient supplies of food, water, medical necessities and basics in order to survive being cut off from the rest of the country, not just for weeks, but possibly much longer. Those with the higher chance of survival in any disaster scenario will always be those the most prepared.

Mystery Object Outshines Entire Milky Way Galaxy by 50 Times --"We Don't Know What the Power Source Could Be" (Thursday's Most Popular) June 09, 2016

Astronomers were not entirely sure what it is. If, as they suspect, the gas ball is the result of a supernova, then it's the most powerful supernova ever seen. In June of 2015, astronomers viewed a ball of hot gas billions of light years away that is radiating the energy of hundreds of billions of suns. Even in a discipline that regularly uses gigantic numbers to express size or distance, the case of this small but powerful mystery object in the center of the gas ball is extreme. At its heart is an object a little larger than 10 miles across. ASAS-SN-15lh, as the object is known, was twice as luminous as any previously seen, far brighter than any normal supernova, and outshone our entire Milky Way galaxy by 50 times. The artist’s impression below shows what it would look like from an exoplanet 10,000 light-years away in its home galaxy. The team reported that the object at the center could be a very rare type of star called a magnetar--but one so powerful that it pushes the energy limits allowed by physics. An international team of professional and amateur astronomers spotted the possible supernova, now called ASASSN-15lh, when it first flared to life in June 2015. The gas ball surrounding the object can't be seen with the naked eye, because it's 3.8 billion light years away. But it was spotted by the All Sky Automated Survey for Supernovae (ASAS-SN, pronounced "assassin") collaboration. Led by Ohio State, the project uses a cadre of small telescopes around the world to detect bright objects in our local universe. Though ASAS-SN has discovered some 250 supernovae since the collaboration began in 2014, the explosion that powered ASASSN-15lh stands out for its sheer magnitude. It is 200 times more powerful than the average supernova, 570 billion times brighter than our sun, and 20 times brighter than all the stars in our Milky Way Galaxy combined. "We have to ask, how is that even possible?" said Krzysztof Stanek, professor of astronomy at Ohio State. "It takes a lot of energy to shine that bright, and that energy has to come from somewhere." "The honest answer is at this point that we do not know what could be the power source for ASASSN-15lh," said Subo Dong, lead author of the Science paper and a Youth Qianren Research Professor of astronomy at the Kavli Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics at Peking University. He added that the discovery "may lead to new thinking and new observations of the whole class of superluminous supernova." Todd Thompson, professor of astronomy at Ohio State, offered one possible explanation. The supernova could have spawned an extremely rare type of star called a millisecond magnetar, a rapidly spinning and very dense star with a very strong magnetic field. To shine so bright, this particular magnetar would also have to spin at least 1,000 times a second, and convert all that rotational energy to light with nearly 100 percent efficiency, Thompson explained. It would be the most extreme example of a magnetar that scientists believe to be physically possible. "Given those constraints," he said, "will we ever see anything more luminous than this? If it truly is a magnetar, then the answer is basically no." The Hubble Space Telescope will help settle the question later this year, in part because it will allow astronomers to see the host galaxy surrounding the object. If the team finds that the object lies in the very center of a large galaxy, then perhaps it's not a magnetar at all, and the gas around it is not evidence of a supernova, but instead some unusual nuclear activity around a supermassive black hole. If so, then its bright light could herald a completely new kind of event, said study co-author Christopher Kochanek, professor of astronomy at Ohio State and the Ohio Eminent Scholar in Observational Cosmology. It would be something never before seen in the center of a galaxy. The Daily Galaxy via Ohio State University Image Credit: NASA and Beijing Planetarium / Jin Ma

Iceland’s Hekla volcano “ready to blow”

A geophysics professor from the University of Iceland has warned people not to travel up Hekla volcano in South Iceland as it could erupt at any moment. As reported by Icelandic news website visir.is (link in Icelandic), Hekla erupted regularly ever ten years or so from 1970 to 2000 – but has now been silent for sixteen years. According to Professor Páll Einarsson, pressure readings within the famous volcano are now higher than before the last two previous eruptions – meaning it could blow with little warning. “Hekla is a dangerous volcano,” says Einarsson. “We could be looking at a major disaster when the next eruption begins if we are not careful.” MORE: 1980 Hekla eruption passenger jet near-miss “Hekla has become a very popular tourist destination. Nowadays, there are tourist groups on Hekla most of the summer,” Einarsson explain in the visir.is article. “There are also 20-30 planes full of passengers flying right over the top of Hekla every day,” he warns. “This is a risky moment which we need to take seriously.” New measurements have shown that Hekla has been gathering magma and internal pressure is higher than before the last two previous eruptions. “Hekla is ready – at any moment,” Einarsson concludes.

'ACCORDING TO THE MUSLIM FAITH, IF SOMEONE TRIES TO APOSTATE, HE OR SHE COULD BE KILLED'

June 21, 2016

Islamic apologists in the West, both Muslim and non-Muslim, routinely deny that Islam has a death penalty for those who leave Islam. They also deny that Islam allows for child marriage. How is it that so many Muslims in Pakistan have misunderstood their own faith? Says the local police chief in the article below: “The Muslims living in the area said nobody is allowed to go back to his or her old religion after embracing Islam. According to the Muslim faith, if someone tries to apostate, he or she could be killed.” And later on, the Washington Post informs us that Pakistan is “a country with no law against child marriage.” Apostasy: “They wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved so you would be alike. So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them and take not from among them any ally or helper.” (Qur’an 4:89) A hadith depicts Muhammad saying: “Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him” (Bukhari 9.84.57). The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law according to all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence. This is still the position of all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence, both Sunni and Shi’ite. Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the most renowned and prominent Muslim cleric in the world, has stated: “The Muslim jurists are unanimous that apostates must be punished, yet they differ as to determining the kind of punishment to be inflicted upon them. The majority of them, including the four main schools of jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi’i, and Hanbali) as well as the other four schools of jurisprudence (the four Shiite schools of Az-Zaidiyyah, Al-Ithna-‘ashriyyah, Al-Ja’fariyyah, and Az-Zaheriyyah) agree that apostates must be executed.” Qaradawi also once famously said: “If they had gotten rid of the apostasy punishment, Islam wouldn’t exist today.”

Spending it all on rent: 11 million Americans spend half their income on rent. Another 21 million spend over 30 percent of their income on rent, a record high.

Posted by mybudget360 in income, real estate

The financial raiding of the American middle class is moving full steam ahead. The ridiculous structure of the banking bailouts and artificially low interest rates caused hot money from banks and big investors to crowd out regular families in the housing market. Now here we are 7 years after the official conclusion of the Great Recession and regular American families are financially struggling while banks and big investors thrive. Today 11 million Americans spend half of their income on rent. Another 21.3 million spent over 30 percent of their income on rent. With millions of properties being bought by investors since the Great Recession hit, all that has happened is a mega transfer of wealth. You don’t build equity by renting but many people are simply priced out from buying a home. The great bailout scam Most Americans have a hard time saving money. This is why housing has been a big plus in the net worth column for many households for more than a generation. This is seen as a forced savings mechanism. Yet the homeownership rate is at a generational low and we have a record percentage of families now renting building no equity. And the problem in big cities is even more pronounced. Here is a map showing how much you need to earn to afford a regular two-bedroom apartment: So it should come as no surprise that many young Americans stuck in low wage jobs are unable to rent a place and end up living with parents or roommates. Others simply spend a wild amount of their income on rent. In the past, this would be the prime age to buy but that is not happening. Unfortunately there are two big issues here: -1. There is a lost decade in homeownership growth. Meaning many people missed out on building equity. -2. Banks and investors continue to hoard homes causing an abnormal distortion to the market. This is manipulated because the Fed is forcibly keeping interest rates low. The end result was that investors dove into housing chasing yields in rental properties, a segment of the market that was largely left to mom and pop investors in the past. The amount of buying over the last decade was a new trend especially with big money flowing in – even though returns are low with zero percent interest rates, banks and big investors had little risk in loading up on rental properties. And rents continue to go up while incomes went stagnant: Rents are going up faster than wages and are far outpacing the overall inflation rate. So it is no surprise then that a record number of Americans are spending half of their money on rent. This makes it less likely that they are consuming on other goods or also saving for their own retirement. All it means is more money is being siphoned off to banks and investors. This is largely shuffling digital money around but Americans are now understanding who really has the power in this country. Large financial institutions are dictating how things play out even if it means things are worse off financially for regular working families.

There Are Now More Bureaucrats With Guns Than U.S. Marines

Report: Non-military federal agencies spend $1.48 billion on guns and ammo since 2006

BY: Elizabeth Harrington June 22, 2016 3:20 pm

There are now more non-military government employees who carry guns than there are U.S. Marines, according to a new report. Open the Books, a taxpayer watchdog group, released a study Wednesday that finds domestic government agencies continue to grow their stockpiles of military-style weapons, as Democrats sat on the House floor calling for more restrictions on what guns American citizens can buy. The “Militarization of America” report found civilian agencies spent $1.48 billion on guns, ammunition, and military-style equipment between 2006 and 2014. Examples include IRS agents with AR-15s, and EPA bureaucrats wearing camouflage. “Regulatory enforcement within administrative agencies now carries the might of military-style equipment and weapons,” Open the Books said. “For example, the Food and Drug Administration includes 183 armed ‘special agents,’ a 50 percent increase over the ten years from 1998-2008. At Health and Human Services (HHS), ‘Special Office of Inspector General Agents’ are now trained with sophisticated weaponry by the same contractors who train our military special forces troops.” Open the Books found there are now over 200,000 non-military federal officers with arrest and firearm authority, surpassing the 182,100 personnel who are actively serving in the U.S. Marines Corps. The IRS spent nearly $11 million on guns, ammunition, and military-style equipment for its 2,316 special agents. The tax collecting agency has billed taxpayers for pump-action and semi-automatic shotguns, semi-automatic Smith & Wesson M&P15s, and Heckler & Koch H&K 416 rifles, which can be loaded with 30-round magazines. The EPA spent $3.1 million on guns, ammo, and equipment, including drones, night vision, “camouflage and other deceptive equipment,” and body armor. When asked about the spending, and EPA spokesman said the report “cherry picks information and falsely misrepresents the work of two administrations whose job is to protect public health.” “Many purchases were mischaracterized or blown out of proportion in the report,” said spokesman Nick Conger. “EPA’s criminal enforcement program has not purchased unmanned aircraft, and the assertions that military-grade weapons are part of its work are false.” “EPA’s criminal enforcement program investigates and prosecutes the most egregious violators of our nation’s environmental laws, and EPA criminal enforcement agents are law enforcement professionals who have undergone the same rigorous training as other federal agents,” Conger continued. Other administration agencies that have purchased guns and ammo include the Small Business Administration, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Department of Education, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology. The report also highlighted that the Department of Health and Human Services has “special agents” with “sophisticated military-style weapons.” Open the Books also found $42 million in gun and ammunition purchases that were incorrectly coded. “Some purchases were actually for ping-pong balls, gym equipment, bread, copiers, cotton balls, or cable television including a line item from the Coast Guard entered as ‘Cable Dude,’” the report said. Open the Books appealed to both liberals like Bernie Sanders—who has called for demilitarizing local police departments—and conservatives in its report. “Conservatives argue that it is hypocritical for political leaders to undermine the Second Amendment while simultaneously equipping non-military agencies with hollow-point bullets and military style equipment,” Open the Books said. “One could argue the federal government itself has become a gun show that never adjourns with dozens of agencies continually shopping for new firearms.” Update June 23, 10:15 a.m.: Following publication of this article, Adam Andrzejewski, the CEO of Open the Books who wrote the report, pushed back against the EPA’s statement, and provided contract data to back up his claims. “How can the EPA spokesperson deny hard facts from their own checkbook?” he said. “Alongside our oversight report, OpenTheBooks.com also released a PDF of all raw data. This line-by-line transactional record from the EPA’s own checkbook on page 113 clearly shows that in 2013 and 2014 the EPA purchased tens of thousands of dollars of ‘Unmanned Aircraft’ from Bergen RC Helicopters Inc which on a net basis amounted to approximately $34,000.” “All of the assertions in our oversight report are the quantification of actual spending records produced and reported to us by the federal agencies themselves,” Andrzejewski said.

North Korea's Musudan Missile Test Actually Succeeded. What Now?

North Korea claims its sixth Musudan missile test this year was a success. Why does that matter?

By Ankit Panda June 23, 2016

Yesterday, North Korea launched two liquid-fueled Musudan (Hwasong-10) intermediate-range ballistic missiles. As I wrote then, the tests marked the fifth and sixth test launches of the missile this year. Testing began in mid-April, to coincide with the birth anniversary of Kim Il-sung, North Korea’s founder and grandfather to current leader Kim Jong-un. Sadly for Kim, all four tests prior to yesterday had failed either at launch or shortly after launch. (The Diplomat‘s John Power has a good round-up of the most recent tests at our Koreas channel.) Tests one through four failed, and yesterday, the first test (test launch five) also failed, though it flew further than the previous tests. It turns out that the sixth and final Musudan tested to date actually demonstrated results suggesting a high degree of success. Japan’s Defense Minister Gen Nakatani noted an apogee of around 1,000 kilometers for the missile. The sixth Musudan also covered the most surface distance, traveling 400 kilometers from its launch site near the North Korean city of Wonsan, on the country’s eastern coast overlooking the Sea of Japan. (Incidentally, the first missile fired yesterday also flew 150 kilometers, a significant upgrade over the previous launches in April and May.) The 1,000 kilometer apogee means that the missile made it into the Earth’s exosphere. Long-range ballistic missiles work by essentially hurling their payload high into the earth’s atmosphere, using a ballistic trajectory to reach their target, letting gravity and air resistance do most of the work in the reentry and terminal phases. A Musudan at 1,000 kilometers is a worrisome milestone, particularly if Pyongyang is able to mount its new compact nuclear devices on board the missile. The 400 kilometer range, meanwhile, shouldn’t deceive you; North Korea likely intended for the missile to fly at a steeper angle than would be ideal for it to reach its maximum range of 3,500 kilometers. (Pyongyang took care to make sure that the missile didn’t splash down within Japan’s air defense identification zone, as well.) Enjoying this article? Click here to subscribe for full access. Just $5 a month. Indeed, early on Thursday, a day after the Musudan test launches, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was reported to have said that the test was a full success and, critically, underlined that Pyongyang now had attained “the sure capability to attack” U.S. targets in the “Pacific operation theater,” most likely referring to Guam but also other regional U.S. bases. The definition of success in missile testing can be somewhat subjective; North Korea gets to decide the parameters it was looking to accomplish and it looks like Kim Jong-un is satisfied with the 1,000 kilometer apogee and the 400 kilometer range accomplishments. (Obvious failed tests meanwhile are easy to spot, particularly when a missile blows itself and its launcher up on or immediately after launch.) Kim Jong-un’s Thursday statement also helps explain why we’ve seen a particularly unusual spate of Musudan testing this spring. North Korea watchers have speculated that the repeated and rushed testing could have been due to Kim Jong-un needing to demonstrate, in line with his byungjin ambitions (more on that here), that he possessed a credible strike platform capable of hitting the U.S. territory of Guam. North Korea’s KN-08 and new KN-14 intercontinental ballistic missiles, which may be capable of striking most of the continental United States if developed successfully, remain in development and have yet to be test-fired. Jeffrey Lewis, a North Korea watcher and nonproliferation expert at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, notes that “If we do nothing, this ends in a successful flight test of the Musudan-based KN-08 (ICBM).” This test should be a reminder for policymakers in the United States and certainly in the region that North Korea continues to make steady progress on a range of platforms that bring Kim Jong-un closer to realizing the nuclear leg of byungjin, threatening regional peace and security. It’s far from obvious where Pyongyang goes from here. Kim Jong-un’s statement on Thursday suggests that the signaling value of the Musudan tests has been accomplished and, with a limited inventory of missiles remaining, Pyongyang may choose to hold off on further testing. Conversely, it could continue testing to protest international isolation and sanctions. The nightmare scenario is the possibility of Pyongyang using the know-how its gained with its Musudan testing to eventually conduct a flight test its KN-08 ICBM, with a possible atmospheric nuclear detonation to remove any doubts about miniaturization. However, amid attempts at an uneasy rapprochement with Beijing and even a willingness to enter a track 1.5 dialogue with regional and U.S. diplomats this week, Pyongyang may choose to tamp down its spate of testing somewhat and claim that its long-sought goal of credibly being able to threaten Guam with a nuclear strike has been achieved. With the country under economic stress from sanctions and under increased agricultural stress precipitating a famine, Kim has plenty of reason to turn his attention to the economic leg of byungjin.

The Supreme Court Just Created a Full-Blown Police State – The End of the USA Cannot Be Far Behind

Posted Jun 21, 2016 by Martin Armstrong

The Supreme Court ruling in Utah v Strieff awarded the police total freedom to stop any citizen, at any time, to do whatever they desire. The Supreme Court determined that the “poisonous fruit” of a police officer’s stop of a citizen can be used against them at trial. This has wiped out, in reality, any constitutional protection you thought you had. This is a sad day for the United States, for the Supreme Court has officially created a full-blown police state and clearly has no intention of honoring why this nation began the entire American Revolution — to prevent illegal searches that allowed the king to look for anything he could use to prosecute citizens. The Supreme Court ruled that even though the officer had initially violated a person’s rights (in other words, the Constitution) the officer’s conduct was “at most negligent” and the result of “good-faith mistakes.” This language is a wink and nod to the police who only have to claim they made a mistake that was not intentional and they walk free. We have witnessed police outrageously murder citizens, but the police officers involved are usually not charged. Now, with this decision, the United States has become exactly as Ukraine stood before the people revolted. A friend of mine from Ukraine came to the states before the last revolution. When they would see a police officer, they would tense up and try to avoid them at all costs. At home, the police were the criminals. They would shake you down, abuse you, and there was simply no rule of law. The Supreme Court, as of yesterday, has committed suicide. In February 1761, James Otis, Jr. (1725–1783) argued brilliantly against the Writs of Assistance that was authorized in 1660 but became an instrument of tyranny in 1758 in the American colonies as a means to raise taxes. For nearly five hours, Otis made a brilliant oration in court against the Writs, but he lost the case, for what judge would ever rule against his master? John Adams later wrote that “the child independence was then and there born, [for] every man of an immense crowded audience appeared to me to go away as I did, ready to take arms against writs of assistance.” This spirit of resistance appears to rise roughly every 51.6 years, albeit at different intensity. This very power to arbitrarily search anyone sparked the American Revolution. No taxation without representation followed, but the inspiration was the right to be free and the Supreme Court just took away. The police no longer have restraint. This is the final stage of how empires, nations, and city-states collapse when there is no rule of law. Once the state elevates itself above the people, the end is not far behind. The dissenting words of Justice Sonia Sotomayor reflect the dire state to which the United States has degenerated. Scalia would have joined Justice Sotomayor on this one, and if he were still alive, he would have tipped the scale and protected our liberty. With Scalia gone, who was a strict constructionist, there is little hope left in the Supreme Court. Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote, “Even if you are innocent, you will now join the 65 million Americans with an arrest record and experience the ‘civil death’ of discrimination by employers, landlords, and whoever else conducts a background check.” She concluded, and I must agree: By legitimizing the conduct that produces this double consciousness, this case tells everyone, white and black, guilty and innocent, that an officer can verify your legal status at any time. It says that your body is subject to invasion while courts excuse the violation of your rights. It implies that you are not a citizen of a democracy but the subject of a carceral state, just waiting to be cataloged. We must not pretend that the countless people who are routinely targeted by police are “isolated.” They are the canaries in the coal mine whose deaths, civil and literal, warn us that no one can breathe in this atmosphere. They are the ones who recognize that unlawful police stops corrode all our civil liberties and threaten all our lives. Until their voices matter too, our justice system will continue to be anything but.

'No Fly, No Buy' Means No Freedom

By Andrew P. Napolitano June 23, 2016

The people in the government who want to control our personal choices are the enemies of freedom. And the enemies of freedom can be very clever and seductive. Last week, these folks, manifesting their lust to keep us dependent upon the government by rejecting the natural right to self-defense, coined a clever phrase: “No fly, no buy.” It sounds rational, yet it rejects core American values. The phrase was pounded home to average Americans during a one-sided 15-hour televised marathon on the floor of the Senate orchestrated by the gun control crowd. The essence of the argument was that stricter laws regarding gun sales would have prevented the massacre at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida. In gun control advocates’ dream world, the self-loathing Islamic State-inspired killer, willing to take 49 innocent lives, would somehow have been unwilling to violate restrictive gun purchase laws; and his obedience to those laws would have saved lives. Their argument is naive and absurd. A person willing to commit mass murder is surely willing to break the law to acquire the means to commit the murders. So blinded were these senators in their misguided utterances about self-defense that they forgot about the Constitution. Myths, Misunderstandings and Outright lies about owning Gold. Are you at risk? The legislation they offered would have required that people whose names the feds put on a terror watchlist or a no-fly list (these are often done simultaneously) would not be legally able to purchase a gun. The senators summarized this idea dozens of times as “no fly, no buy.”Though this phrase, which was quickly picked up by many of my colleagues in the media, has an easy and simplistic ring to it, it reveals a troubling ideology that profoundly rejects core American values. When Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence that we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights and when the inalienability of our rights was codified in the first 10 amendments to the Constitution, the United States was wedded to the Judeo-Christian principle that our rights stem from our humanity. This was expressly recognized recently by the Supreme Court in District of Columbia v. Heller, in which it held that the right to keep and bear arms is a fundamental personal right, not a gift of the government to a group. A fundamental personal right is the natural ability of individuals to make meaningful choices without a government permission slip. May the government ever interfere with fundamental rights? The short answer is yes. The longer answer is that it can only do so if it can demonstrate a compelling governmental interest — served by the least restrictive means, and only after due process. Stated differently, if the government wants to silence your speech or deny you the right to self-defense, it must meet a very high burden in a public courtroom. It must demonstrate to a judge and jury that its need to silence or disarm you is compelling, and its goals may not be attained by any lesser means. Americans need not demonstrate a compelling need to speak or bear arms; the government must demonstrate a compelling need to prevent us from doing so. That is what lawyers call black letter law — meaning it is well-established, followed throughout the land and rarely challenged. Until now. Earlier this week in the Senate, the gun control crowd sought to give nameless and faceless federal bureaucrats the ability to strip Americans of their right to keep and bear arms by putting their names on a terror watchlist/no-fly list and prohibiting those on the list from buying guns. Yet none of these senators could state the criteria for putting a name on that list, and none could identify the people who prepare or keep the list. That’s because these are well-guarded government secrets — secrets that have no place in American life. If a government bureaucrat can put your name on a secret list on the bureaucrat’s own whim or even using secret standards and, as a result, you have lost a fundamental liberty, then the feds have transformed a natural right into a governmental gift. If the feds can create a no-fly list in secret and “no fly” comes to mean “no buy,” then we have no rights but what the government will permit us to do. As if to underscore his ignorance of American values, one of the senators even stated that due process is killing us. He must have forgotten his oath to uphold the Constitution, which guarantees that the government may not take life, liberty or property without due process. Due process — the absolute right to know the law and to force the government to prove a violation of it to a jury before it can take life, liberty or property — is the essence of the rights of free people. It is utterly scandalous — and probably disqualifying from office — that a senator could bemoan its existence. Can you see how low we have sunk? The gun control crowd doesn’t care about personal liberty in a free society; it just cares about control. It wants us all to be pliant and reliant on a government that it controls; never mind that it is utterly incapable of protecting us from crazies who will resort to mass death for their own deranged purposes. If the government secretly can put an American’s name on a secret list and, as a result, his liberty is lost, then there are no freedoms — just government-granted privileges. And if it can do this to the natural rights to travel and self-defense, can other fundamental rights be far behind?

US general warns Russia could OVERWHELM eastern Europe in just 36 hours as Putin blames Nato's 'aggressive actions' for building up his country's military forces

The warning came from the commander of US ground forces in Europe

Gen Ben Hodges said Russia could conquer Baltic capitals in 36 hours

Heavy military equipment could not be moved fast enough, he warned

Russia is creating new divisions along its southwest regions

By Ted Thornhill for MailOnline Published: 09:18 EST, 22 June 2016 | Updated: 15:54 EST, 22 June 2016

Nato would currently be unable to protect the Baltics against a Russian attack, the commander of US ground forces in Europe, General Ben Hodges, said in a news report Wednesday. 'Russia could take over the Baltic states faster than we would be able to defend them,' Hodges was quoted as saying in a German-language article by news weekly Die Zeit. His comments came as Putin slammed Nato for ratcheting up its rhetoric and its 'aggressive actions' close to Russia's border, warning it was forcing Moscow to increase its military capacity. General Hodges had said he agreed with an assessment by military analysts that says Russian forces could conquer the capitals of Baltic states Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia within 36 to 60 hours. Hodges also said Nato forces had found numerous deficiencies during the recent 'Anaconda' military exercise in Poland, according to the article from Thursday's edition of Die Zeit released early to AFP. Heavy military equipment could not be moved fast enough from western to eastern Europe, he said, while also voicing concern about the alliance's communication technology. 'Neither radio communication nor email are secure,' he was quoted as saying. 'I assume that everything I write on my BlackBerry is being monitored.' The Anaconda manoeuvre included troops from more than 20 Nato member states but was officially a Polish national exercise. Hodges told Die Zeit that 'some countries, like France and Germany, thought it would be too provocative toward Russia to call it a Nato exercise'. Putin's remarks about Nato aggression came on the 75th anniversary of the invasion of the USSR by Nazi Germany. 'Nato is stepping up its aggressive rhetoric and its aggressive actions close to our borders,' Putin told lawmakers. 'In these conditions, we are obliged to dedicate special attention to resolving tasks connected with heightening the defence capabilities of our country.' Putin also accused the West of rejecting Russian overtures to help tackle the common foe of 'international terrorism' - as it once ignored the Soviet Union's warnings about Hitler - as it seeks to isolate Moscow over the Ukraine crisis. 'Once again, as it was on the eve of World War II, (we) are not seeing a positive response,' Putin said. Relations between Russia and the West have slumped to their lowest point since the Cold War over Moscow's 2014 annexation of Crimea from Ukraine and its alleged masterminding of a separatist uprising. Russian aircraft have also increased tensions recently by launching a series of provocative intercepts of Nato, Swedish and other aircraft. Nato announced last week that it would deploy four battalions to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland to counter a more assertive Russia, ahead of a landmark summit in Warsaw on July 8-9. All four countries were once ruled from Moscow and remain deeply suspicious of Russian intentions, especially after Russia's annexation of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014. Russia bitterly opposes Nato's expansion into its Soviet-era satellites and last month said it would create three new divisions in its southwest region to meet what it described as a dangerous military build-up along its borders.

EXCLUSIVE: Donald Rumsfeld says he'll vote for Trump – 'It's not a close call!' – as 9/11-era defense secretary says Hillary Clinton 'would probably be indicted' over emails if she were a soldier or sailor

Rumsfeld tells DailyMail.com that he will vote for the Republicans' presumptive nominee because he's a 'known unknown' and Hillary Clinton is a 'known known'

9/11-era defense secretary is one of the most senior Republican figures to come out publicly for Trump

He says Hillary Clinton isn't qualified to sit in the Oval Office, and 'would probably be indicted' over her emails if she were a junior military grunt

Trump launched an all-out attack on Hillary Clinton on Wednesday at a speech in New York in which he lambasted her as a 'world-class liar'

Rumsfeld spoke in an interview while promoting his Android 'Churchill Solitaire' app, which recreates Winston Churchill's favorite card game

By David Martosko, U.s. Political Editor For Dailymail.com Published: 16:30 EST, 22 June 2016 | Updated: 10:50 EST, 23 June 2016

Former U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld said Wednesday that he will support Donald Trump with his vote in November. The declaration, which Rumsfeld made in an interview with DailyMail.com, makes him the highest-ranking member of the George W. Bush administration to back the Republican Party's presumptive nominee. It's 'not a close call,' he said in a 25-minute phone interview. Rumsfeld said he agrees in principle with Trump's position on reforming the NATO alliance, keeping Syrian refugees at bay over fears of terrorist infiltration, and other issues. And besides, he added, 'I'm a Republican, and there's not any doubt in my mind how I'll vote,' and 'I don't believe Hillary Clinton is qualified to be President of the United States.' 'I am incredibly grateful for the support of Secretary Rumsfeld, and I am very honored he supports my stances on NATO, the need to defeat ISIS and stop immigration of Syrian refugees,' Trump told DailyMail.com in a statement. Bush, the 43rd president, has given no indication that he will back Trump, who bounced his younger brother Jeb from a vicious GOP primary process this year. The former president has indicated that he won't attend July's Republican National Convention in Cleveland, an event already being talked about as 'The Trump Show' inside party circles. Colin Powell, the Bush-era secretary of state, has been openly hostile to Trump over his immigration positions. 'Let's tell all the immigrants working in Trump hotels to stay home tomorrow. See what happens,' he told the Washington Ideas Forum last October. Rumsfeld said Powell's opposition to his party's standard bearer is unsurprising. 'He supported Obama, Colin did! That's nothing new,' he said. Rumsfeld spoke with DailyMail.com as part of a media tour aimed at promoting the release of his 'Churchill Solitaire' app on the Android platform. The iPhone version has been downloaded more than 650,000 times and represents Winston Churchill's favorite version of the play-alone card game. Rumsfeld said he learned the game in 1973 from André de Staercke, a Belgian NATO diplomat, who learned it 30 years earlier from Churchill himself. 'I was afraid it would be lost to the ages,' he said Wednesday, while admitting the technology mystified him at first. 'I didn't even know what an app was!' he marveled. 'Don't tell anyone.' An animated Rumsfeld, 83, was even more eager to talk about the Trump phenomenon, saying that a year ago 'you could count on one hand' the number of people who thought he would be the GOP nominee. While the former defense secretary said he and Trump have never met, he agrees with the real estate tycoon about what Trump calls the potential for a 'Trojan horse' infiltration of terrorists among the Syrian refugees whom the Obama administration has been resettling in the U.S. 'He's absolutely right,' he said. 'Anyone who thinks the radical Islamists are not going to try to utilize every venue they can find to infiltrate in the United States, and in western European countries, to achieve their goals – these people just don't get it.' 'They've announced what they're going to do,' he said of the ISIS terror army. On the refugee crisis and the need for a NATO reboot, Rumsfeld said he has arrived at a Trump-aligned position through a different line of argument. 'We've got an enormous obligation' to help fleeing Syrians, he said, 'and the United Nations is so incompetent and inept and unhelpful ... this refugee problem is the most heartbreaking thing in the world.' But instead of politicizing the issue and moving the refugees halfway around the world, he said, the U.S. should be mobilizing regional powers to give them somewhere to flee to. 'We've got an obligation to provide safe zones for them,' he said. 'We've got to be proactive rather than arguing whether we should have 1000 or 2000 or 3000' in the United States. 'How is what I've said different from what he's said?' he asked, referring to Trump – whose position is nearly identical but contains an extra layer of terrorism rhetoric. 'The way he said it got him the Republican nomination for president. The way I said it makes people's eyes glaze over' but is 'less concerning to some people. ''The only real difference is [that] one is striking a nerve.' Trump's immigration policy and his own views, he said, similarly arrive at the same end but form different starting points. Most immigrants, he said, don't 'want to impose a different system on us.' But 'countries ought to be able to maintain their values' in the face of immigrant populations that don't want to assimilate. On NATO, Rumsfeld emphasized that most media reports of Trump's stated goals have been inaccurate. 'People have played very fast and loose,' he said. 'What he actually said was different from the characterizations that followed.' Rumsfeld, once America's NATO ambassador himself, agreed with Trump that the internal compass of the organization needs an overhaul, proclaiming the presumptive nominee's position is 'not far from what I wrote ... to President Bush 13 or 14 years ago.' NATO, he said, was 'fashioned during the Truman administration, and they do need to be updated for the 21st century and the information age.' Hillary Clinton has pounced on popularized but inaccurate versions of Trump's NATO pronouncements, saying he would withdraw the U.S. from the alliance entirely. Rumsfeld framed the choice between Clinton and Trump in terms political historians will find familiar, relying on the words he used in 2002 to describe questions about the U.S. intelligence community's ability to spot weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. 'Mrs. Clinton is a known known. Donald Trump is a known unknown who's a recent entry into the equation,' he said, attributing the insight to his wife. 'And I am a lot more comfortable with a known unknown, who I will support, than with a known known who is unacceptable.' 'I couldn't support Mrs. Clinton,' he emphasized. 'What she has done with classified information I think is inexcusable and puts at risk people's lives [and] not just ours.' Clinton is facing an FBI investigation concerning classified material found among emails she housed on a homebrew private server while she ran the State Department. 'I personally believe that if she were a sergeant in the Army or a yeoman in the Navy, she'd probably be indicted,' he said. 'It's just inexcusable. You just can't do that!' The impact of Clinton's data security practices will be far-reaching, Rumsfeld predicted. 'Other countries will be less likely to share information with us,' he said, now that it's clear the U.S. government can't maintain the secrecy it once boasted as a core competency. And the potential for hacking, he said, means state secrets are falling 'into the hands of the other side,' which 'tells them that we had the information, which means they can figure out how we got it and stop us from getting more ... and even compromise the people who gave it to us or allow us to get it.' Rumsfeld also took issue with Clinton's statements to family members of U.S. personnel killed in a 2012 terror attack on a diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya. Those next of kin have said Clinton blamed their loved ones' deaths on an anti-Islam YouTube video, rather than identifying the carnage as the result of a jihadi attack. Her emails at the time show that she conceded the truth to her daughter and to foreign leaders. 'When Mrs. Clinton said to those people, the parents of the people killed, that it was the video, when she knew completely, certainly, that it wasn't' – he said, suddenly falling silent. 'I mean, I'm very uncomfortable with someone like that,' he concluded.

Paul Craig Roberts Just Exposed The Terrifying Reason Why The Elites Had To Stop Brexit At All Costs

June 22, 2016

Former U.S. Treasury Secretary, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, just exposed the terrifying reason why the elites had to stop Brexit at all costs. (King World News) Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: “If you read the presstitute media, Brexit—the referendum tomorrow on the UK’s exit from the EU— is about racism. According to the story line, angry rightwing racists of violent inclinations want to leave the EU to avoid having to accept more dark-skinned immigrants into England… Continue reading the Dr. Paul Craig Roberts piece below… Despite the constant propaganda against exit, polls indicated that more favored leaving the EU than remaining until a female member of Parliament, Jo Cox, was killed by a man that a witness said shouted “Brexit.” Cox was an opponent of leaving the EU. Cox’s Murder Used To Drive The Propaganda The UK government and presstitute media used Cox’s murder to drive home the propaganda that violent racists were behind Brexit. However, other witnesses gave a different report. The Guardian, which led with the propaganda line, did report later in its account that “Other witnesses said the attack was launched after the MP became involved in an altercation involving two men near where she held her weekly surgery.” Of course, we will never know, because Cox’s murder is too valuable of a weapon against Brexit. There is no doubt that many in the UK are disturbed at the transformation of their country. One doesn’t have to be a racist to feel that one’s country is being stolen from them by people of alien cultures. The British have a long history of fighting off invaders, and many believe they are experiencing an invasion, although not an armed one. An armed one, of course, would not have the government’s and media’s support. When British people hear pundits pronounce that immigrants contribute more to the UK than they absorb in social payments, what they hear is inconsistent with their experience. Moreover, many British are tired of having to avoid entire sections of their cities, including London, because of safety concerns. The U.K. Being Led Down The Rabbit Hole Of Its Own Destruction It is a propaganda choice to call these concerns racism rather than cultural defense, and the UK political establishment has made that propaganda choice. Little wonder so many British citizens no longer believe that the British Establishment represents Britain. But let’s give the propagandists the benefit of the doubt and for sake of argument assume that Brexit is about racism. What is the opposition to Brexit really about? Most certainly it is not about helping the refugees from Washington’s wars that the UK government has enabled. If the British establishment cared so much for the Muslims seeking refuge from America’s invasions, bombs, and drones, the British establishment would not have supported Washington’s attacks on these people. Opposition to Brexit is based on two powerful interests of Washington. The End Of London As A Financial Center? One is the interests of the New York banks and Wall Street to eliminate the UK as a financial center competitor. This blatant fact has escaped the notice of the City and the Bank of England. The British have forgotten that they only have one foot in the EU, because the UK was permitted to keep its own currency. The UK does not use the euro and, thus, retains the power to finance the British government. Greece, Portugal, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, etc., do not have this capability. They are dependent on private banks for financing. In order to trick the UK into joining the EU, the British were given special privileges. However, these privileges cannot last forever. The EU process is one of political integration. As I reported years ago, Jean-Claude Trichet, at that time the president of the European Central Bank, said that to complete the political integration of Europe, the fiscal policies of member states would be centralized. It is impossible to centralize fiscal policies if the UK is an independent financial center with its own central bank and currency. Why The Elites Had To Stop Brexit At All Costs Wall Street understands that the defeat of Brexit means a shortened lifespan for London as a financial center, as it is impossible to be a financial center unless a country has its own currency and central bank. As it is impossible for the UK to be a member of the EU and not operate under the European Central Bank, once the Brexit referendum is defeated, the process of gradually forcing the UK into the euro will begin. The other powerful interest is the interest of Washington to prevent one country’s exit from leading to the exit of other countries. As CIA documents found in the US National Archives make clear, the EU was a CIA initiative, the purpose of which is to make it easy for Washington to exercise political control over Europe. It is much easier for Washington to control the EU than 28 separate countries. Moreover, if the EU unravels, so likely would NATO, which is the necessary cover for Washington’s aggression. The EU serves Washington and the One Percent. It serves no one else. The EU is a murderer of sovereignty and peoples. The intent is for the British, French, Germans, Italians, Greeks, Spanish, and all the rest to disappear as peoples. Brexit is the last chance to defeat this hidden agenda, and apparently the British will vote tomorrow without having a clue as to what is at stake and what the vote is about.” ***Also just released: Shocking Interview From A Legend On Brexit And The Global Chaos That Will Ensue After Brexit CLICK HERE.

Hunting Humans Could Become 'Big Game' In Future As Economy Continues To Crumble - With The Elite Now Using Food As A Weapon Against Humanity, 'Dark Tourism' Is Already Worth Billions Yearly And Set To Explode As Chaos Takes Hold June 22, 2016

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

The story that the Drudge Report linked to on Tuesday from the Mirror sounds like something out of a dystopian science fiction horror novel but apparently it may one day become all too real; "Hunting Humans Set To Become Big Business For The Super Rich Within The Next 100 Years" we are told. As we hear in the 1st video below from WeaponizedNEWS.Com, we're now getting more and more proof that the 1% want to put the rest of us into a 'hunger games' scenario as we approach UN's Agenda-2030. The 2nd video below is the trailer for the classic movie "Running Man" which takes place, by the way, in the year 2017. ("Oh what timing!" Susan says!) While the elite hunting down humans might sound way out of the realm of possibility to some, the fact that the majority of men and women living in Venezuela are now very hungry with some resorting to hunting down dogs and cats to eat, just to survive, while the elite in Venezuela still dine on gourmet foods should send us a loud and clear signal that it's not out of the realm of possibility. When we also consider the way we're heading in society with dark and evil forces at work all around us, we should heed the warnings of what experts tell us it would take for our society to reach that point which they warn we're already approaching, though we may still be 100 years away from. Telling us that 'dark tourism' is a flourishing business even now in 2016 that is worth billions of dollars a year, we're told that the range of 'dark tourism' from now into the future range from scenes of death from concentration camps and museums dedicated to serial killers and mass murderers to one day featuring the real-life barbarism of the soulless elite hunting down other human beings for sport, and maybe food, if it's not happening privately already. As if we need more proof of how far America and the West have already fallen, we're told that the 'elite' will likely be willing to pay millions of dollars to be able to hunt down and murder other human beings and by the year 2200, such 'events' will likely become televised public spectacle, similar to 'The Hunger Games' or the classic 'The Running Man'.  The nightmare prediction comes from Daniel Wright, senior lecturer in tourism at the University of Central Lancashire in a paper for the scientific journal Futures. He outlined a world ravaged by economic and ecological disasters , leading to overpopulation and a huge gap between rich and poor. But, he said, it also reflect both the past when public executions attracted huge crowds, to the craze for 'Dark Tourism' that is currently work billions a year. This includes scenes of death from battlefields to Ground Zero, concentration camps open to the public and even museums dedicated to murderers such as Jack the Ripper or Dracula. What would it take for us to reach the point where the elite hunting human for sport is not only widely accepted but becomes a public spectacle such as the Hunger Games movie series that showed the youth hunting each other down for sport, in a sick public sacrifice, broadcast for the entire world to see? Is this what our world is coming to, a futuristic gladiatorial society where life no longer matters and people pay to witness or participate in public murder? Hunting humans as an underground sport could happen as early as 2100, the report suggests, but becoming an authentic tourism experience by 2200.Of course the world will have to take a turn for the worse to reach a situation where rich people can hunt poor people for sport. Daniel Wright said: "Death as a spectacle is not a new phenomenon in social spaces. "In fact, our past arguably shows the human fascination for death, through various forms, to be more of a social activity. "Roman gladiatorial games and public executions are well documented examples throughout history." Have America and the West already fallen so far that the future that is warned of for us as early as 2100, that includes the elite hunting down human beings, could become a reality far before they warned us it would? With the economy now heading towards freefall and evil spreading all around us as warned in these three recent stories from Susan Duclos on ANP, have we already arrived at a point where that crossover to barbarism is already upon us? It has been widely proven that the elite who are working to destroy America have a depopulation agenda in store for mankind so that they can get the population of the Earth down to their ideal number of 500 million as represented on the Georgia Guidestones. We have warned time and again that the elite will use food as a weapon upon the people and as we see now in Venezuela, a country without food quickly leads to widespread chaos. The fact that these elite would have no problem hunting down other humans and would actually pay to do so should come as no surprise to ANP readers who know that in this world, absolute evil exists and can be seen in many places all around us if one only looks hard enough to cut through the veil of deception that surrounds us. We're told it would likely take a "future 'captured in fear' scenario" that could lead to the sci-fi nightmare of human beings hunting other human beings down for sport (or food?) We'd venture to bet that it is already happening in small corners of the world where there is no media to broadcast it and nobody left after 'the games' to tell the world the truth. Ecological disasters mean not enough food or land to support the population and megarich tourists hunting the poor to keep the numbers down but as sport too. Wright, outlining his future vision, added: "During these activities the oppressive mega-rich carry out vacations to purposely slaughter humans, with the 'claimed' aim to reduce population size, but an element of perverse thrill and excitement was said to be fuelling the demand. "Due to the strain on resources for human survival the practice gradually became more recognisable and acceptable on the part of the wider population who form part of the wealthy-elite."

How the 'Brexit' Vote Could Impact Americans

By MORGAN WINSOR Jun 24, 2016, 1:03 PM ET

The so-called Brexit vote may seem far removed for most U.S. citizens, but the impact of Britain's exit from the European Union could affect Americans in more ways than one. About half of the American workforce participates in a company retirement plan, according to an analysis of data compiled by the Pew Charitable Trusts. If this includes you, then you’re one of the tens of thousands of people whose investments are at risk from the market turbulence. As Wall Street joins the global market selloff today, your 401(k) will decrease in value temporarily. The good news is that these retirement funds are long-term investments and should be able to weather the storm in the long run. ”No matter how old you are, we’re still looking to the markets to be going up ultimately,” Lauren Lyons Cole, a certified financial planner and personal finance editor at the International Business Times, said on a Facebook live video. “Today, [the markets] might be down 2 or 3 percent but that doesn’t mean you should sell everything – not by a long shot. You want to just keep steady and continue to watch it.” Your Mortgage American households and would-be homeowners will likely see mortgage rates and the cost of buying a house drop, at least in the short term. Investors are currently selling off riskier assets for safe havens, like U.S. Treasuries and gold. As demand for government debt soars, interest rates will fall, with the potential to cause mortgage rates to drop. "In the short term, the move by Britain will unsettle financial markets both in the U.S. and abroad, and likely lead investors to seek haven in safe assets outside of the U.K. and Europe," said Boston College economics professor Robert Murphy. "With a spike in demand for safe U.S. Treasury bonds, yields are likely to move downward. And as investors shift into dollar-denominated assets, the dollar will gain strength against the euro and the pound." The yield on the 10-year Treasury fell to 1.57 percent earlier today, according to Bloomberg Bond Trader data. The last time it was this low was in 2012 and mortgage rates followed suit. The average 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage has also sunk to nearly a three-year low in the past month, hovering around 3.7 percent. Financial analysts expect the Brexit vote to drive down rates even further in the coming weeks. “If you’re a borrower, don’t wait to lock your rate,” Greg McBride, chief financial analyst at Bankrate, told The Washington Post today. “As this opportunity may not last long.” At the current average rate, you’ll pay roughly $462 a month in principal and interest for every $100,000 you borrow, according to Bankrate. Your Business The U.S. dollar is surging in value in the exchange markets, which will drive up the cost for U.S. exports to the U.K. and elsewhere in Europe. This could bring down sales and profits for U.S.-based multinational companies, because the United Kingdom and the E.U. are huge export markets for the United States, totaling about $328 billion last year, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Thirty firms in the S&P 500 generate more than 10 percent of their sales from the United Kingdom, according to data from FactSet Research. "With the E.U. being its largest trading partner, any slowdown in Europe will weaken growth in the U.S. over the near term," said Murphy, a former economist with the Clinton Administration. “Longer-term consequences of Brexit depend on how quickly the process of negotiating new trade and financial arrangements between Britain, the E.U., and other countries takes place. This surely will take several years, meaning that negative economic consequences are likely to be felt for some time.” Also, E.U. membership allows financial firms in the U.K. a “passport” to do business across the other 27 countries. That means American companies can do the same anywhere in the E.U. as long as they set up a branch or subsidiary in a member states. Forty percent of the world's top 250 multinational companies have their European headquarters in London, according to research by Deloitte. The loss of this “passport” will hit American businesses operating out of the U.K. Your Vacation Plans The International Monetary Fund has warned that a Brexit could force the U.K. into a recession. But as the British pound and other European currencies shed value against the U.S. dollar, that trip to London is looking more and more affordable. This means traveling to the U.K. and the rest of Europe will likely become considerably cheaper for U.S. citizens in the coming weeks.

Brexit Leaves Alarm Bells Ringing in Israel

By Yossi Mekelberg On 6/24/16 at 12:14 PM

The day after a tumultuous night, the United Kingdom woke up to a Brexit hangover. Months of fractious, even nasty, campaigning came to an end with a result that surprised even Leave voters themselves. It leaves the country and society divided, and in need of healing the deep rifts opened in the wake of the campaign and its aftermath. Many Britons up and down the country anxiously waited up all night for the results to be declared. Interest in this once-in-a-generation referendum, however, was not confined to Great Britain alone or even the EU, but far beyond. Israel might not be the first example that comes to mind as concerning itself with whether its former Mandatory power stays in or leaves the EU. Nevertheless, within Israel there was a strong, general curiosity about the referendum and more specifically a concern as to how it would affect the Jewish state. Israel has always had complex and even prickly relations with the European Union, mainly around the issue of peace with the Palestinians. From the Venice Declaration of 1980, which called for the right of Palestinians to self-determination, to the most recent French peace initiative, Europe has been seen as biased against Israel. Ironically, Israel is enjoying one of the most favorable trade and cultural agreements with this experimental supranational European entity. Hence, Israeli attitudes towards Brexit depend on whether one thinks it is good for the country to have a strong EU with Britain at the heart of it, or a weak one without it. Furthermore, views in Israel varied about the impact of Britain’s leaving the EU, from those who predicted almost no impact, to those who watched the situation with concern regarding the possibility of what would happen if Israel’s closest ally were to vote out. British Prime Minister David Cameron, in a last ditch attempt to convince members of the Jewish community to support the Remain campaign, told them rather bluntly: “Do you want Britain, Israel’s greatest friend, in there opposing boycotts, opposing the campaign for divestment and sanctions, or do you want us outside the room, powerless to effect the discussion that takes place?” Cameron appealed to a similar sentiment that I found prevalent in my most recent visit to Israel—that Israel needs Britain as a strong and supportive voice against those who are highly critical of Israel within the EU. The decision to leave and Cameron’s resignation come at the time when the mood in Brussels is that Israel’s expansion of settlements, or stand on not negotiating peace with the Palestinians, should no longer go unpunished. Interestingly enough, those close to the settlement movement in the West Bank urged Israelis with a right to vote in the referendum to support leaving the EU. For the Right in Israel it is in the country’s best interest to see a divided and weak European Union with little impact on the future of the occupied territories, in terms of financial aid to the Palestinians and especially a final status agreement. But they should be careful what they wish for in the name of their short-term partisan interest. Regardless, if one is a fan of the soon-to-be-former PM Cameron, he is one of the friendliest British leaders towards Israel in history. Whether inside or outside the European Union, a powerful and prosperous U.K. is important for Israel due to the close economic, strategic, scientific and cultural cooperation between the two. Great Britain is Israel’s chief trade partner on the continent and if its economy suffers as a result of leaving the EU, the ripple effect will be felt in Israel too. Despite growing calls in the U.K. and outside for an academic boycott on Israel, for instance, recently over 350 leading Israeli and British medical researchers met at the University of Oxford in the largest bilateral gathering in years. With the absence of British influence in Europe, Israel is going to be more vulnerable not only to a formal BDS but also the more subtle slowdown in collaboration on wide range of issues. Lastly, Israel as a Jewish state has a sense of responsibility towards world Jewry. Brexit represents, among other phenomena, the rise of nationalism not only in Britain, but across the entire continent. Far-right parties, such as the National Front in France or the Northern League in Italy, expressed their joy at the outcome of the British referendum and demanded similar referenda in their own countries. The rise of nationalism in Europe, of which Brexit is one manifestation, is not a good sign for minorities in the continent, especially for the Jewish minority and their very particular history of persecution. All considered, the British decision that its future lies outside the EU will raise a number of alarm bells among the decision makers in Jerusalem, especially knowing that there is very little they can do about it. Prof. Yossi Mekelberg is the head of the International Relations & Social Sciences Programme at Regent’s University London and associate fellow of the MENA Programme at Chatham House.

Deadlocked Supreme Court blocks Obama on immigration

By Lydia Wheeler and Jordan Fabian - 06/23/16 10:41 AM EDT

The Supreme Court dealt a critical blow to President Obama's immigration policies on Thursday, deadlocking in a 4-4 decision over two controversial programs the White House wants to implement. The tied vote leaves in place a lower court ruling that blocks a program allowing undocumented immigrants who are parents of U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents to remain in the United States for three years and apply for work permits. It also prevents the administration from otherwise expanding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program issued by Obama in 2012. This is the most prominent Supreme Court case to stall in a 4-4 tie, and it raises the stakes further in this fall's presidential election. After Justice Antonin Scalia died in February, Obama nominated federal Judge Merrick Garland to the court. But Senate Republicans, even before that nomination, said they would not hold a vote or a hearing for anyone nominated by Obama, arguing the pivotal vote on the high court should be determined by the next president. The White House and Democrats in Congress have howled in rage over that move, and Thursday's decision will increase tensions over the Senate blockade. Obama in an appearance from the White House press briefing room decried what he called the "lack" of a decision by the eight-justice court. “The fact the Supreme Court wasn’t able to issue a decision today doesn’t just set the system back even further, it takes us further back from the country we want to be," he said. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) blasted the GOP Senate majority for failing to consider Garland in comments on the Supreme Court's steps. "This 4-4 decision is clear evidence we need nine justices on the court," Durbin said. Democratic Party standard-bearer Hillary Clinton has backed the president’s actions and said she would go even further as president to reshape immigration policy. "Today’s deadlocked decision from the Supreme Court is unacceptable, and shows us all just how high the stakes are in this election,” she said in a statement. Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump has pledged to place tough new restrictions on illegal immigration, including the construction of a massive wall along the U.S.'s southern border that he says Mexico will pay for. Republicans hailed the high court’s vote. “The Supreme Court’s ruling makes the president’s executive action on immigration null and void,” Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said in a statement. “The Constitution is clear: The president is not permitted to write laws — only Congress is. This is another major victory in our fight to restore the separation of powers.” Thursday's action does not affect the original DACA decision by Obama that allows certain children who entered or stayed in the United States illegally to remain in the country and apply for work permits. Twenty-six Republican-led states sued the federal government over the expansion of that program, as well as the new program for parents, after the president issued fresh executive actions in November 2014. The states claimed they would be burdened by having to spend more on public services like healthcare, law enforcement and education if undocumented parents of both American citizens and legal permanent residents were allowed to stay in the country. Texas, specifically, said it would be hurt by having to issue more driver's licenses, a benefit that’s now subsidized. Supporters of the administration argued that Texas could pass the added costs for driver’s licenses on to residents. They claim the challenging states actually stand to make money off Obama’s programs from an increase in tax contributions. A three-judge panel from a federal appeals court in New Orleans said in a split decision the Obama administration lacked the legal power to shield more than 4 million undocumented immigrants from deportation and grant them work permits. It handed a nationwide injunction preventing the administration from putting the programs into place. By failing to provide a new ruling on that decision, the Supreme Court's action on Thursday leaves it in place. The actual lawsuit suit filed by the 26 states is still working its way through the court system. When Obama took the action to expand his immigration programs, it was part of a last-ditch effort to take action after Congress failed to pass a sweeping overhaul of nation’s immigration system that would have offered a path to citizenship for millions of people living in the country illegally. Immigrant rights activists derided Obama as the “deporter in chief” for ramping up the pace of deportations during his first term. Since then, he’s taken steps to narrow the focus of immigration enforcement, and his executive actions were seen as a centerpiece of his push to reverse that trend.

Pentagon ban on transgender troops 'likely' to be lifted next month

Published June 25, 2016 FoxNews.com

The Pentagon is "likely" to repeal its ban on transgender service members next month, defense officials told Fox News Friday, even as one report claimed an announcement could happen as soon as next week. According to USA Today, top personnel officials could meet as soon as Monday to finalize details of the plan. Deputy Defense Secretary Bob Wolk would sign off on the plan and Defense Secretary Ash Carter would give his final approval shortly before the July 4 weekend. Pentagon officials would not confirm the USA Today report's timetable to Fox News, but spokesman Peter Cook told reporters earlier this week that a decision on the matter was coming "soon." "I can tell you that we have made progress," said Cook. "[Carter] has indicated that he expects to make a final decision soon, and that's exactly where we are." Late Friday, House Armed Services Committee Chairman Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, accused Carter of putting "the political agenda of a departing administration ahead of the military’s readiness crisis." Carter announced last year that the ban on transgender troops serving openly would be lifted unless it was proven that such an action would have a negative "impact on military effectiveness and readiness." In his statement, Thornberry said Carter had failed to answer a series of questions posed by the committee at the time of Carter's initial announcement, including the cost of modifying barracks and bathroom facilities. The Defense Department currently disqualifies transgender troops from the service on medical grounds. USA Today also reported that several issues related to repealing the transgender ban have caused contention at the Pentagon, most notably how long troops would need to serve before being eligible for gender reassignment surgery. Fox News' Lucas Tomlinson contributed to this report.

President Obama Refuses to Protect Californians' Religious Freedom

12:00PM EDT 6/22/2016 Bob Eschliman

U.S. Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.), co-chair of the Bipartisan Congressional Pro-Life Caucus, reacted sternly Tuesday evening to news the Obama administration is now "reinterpreting" the Weldon Amendment to allow California's mandate that all insurance companies pay for abortion and abortion-inducing drugs to continue. Smith said the move was a "new low" for the administration. "This means that Californians, including churches, will continue to be forced to pay for elective abortions in their insurance plans," he said. "The Weldon amendment—named for the Florida Congressman Dave Weldon who authored it—has been renewed and signed into law annually, including by President Obama. "The Weldon Amendment protects against state-imposed abortion mandates, but Obama's administration has again shown blatant disregard for the rule of law." The Weldon Amendment is an annual appropriations rider, signed into law consistently since 2004, which protects against state-imposed discrimination on the basis of declining to pay for or participate in abortion. Since August of 2014, California has mandated that all churches in the state must cover all abortions in their insurance plans—even in plans where abortion had previously been excluded. Numerous churches filed complaints with the HHS Office of Civil Rights seeking enforcement of the Weldon Amendment. Tuesday, the HHS Office of Civil Rights released the results of its investigation into the California mandate, stating it "found no violation of the Weldon Amendment and is closing this matter without further action." Smith said the decision illustrates "the far reaches of Obama's radical pro-abortion ideology" by forcing churches and communities of faith that have pro-life convictions to "participate in and pay for a practice that dismembers and chemically poisons unborn children." "Congress must not let this discrimination stand," he said. "We must take this issue out of the hands of the Obama administration by moving enforcement of current conscience protections to the courts. Congress needs to enact legislation so churches and other victims have a 'private right of action' so they can have their day in court." Draw closer to God.

Obama creates first national gay rights monument

By Devin Henry - 06/24/16 12:00 PM EDT

President Obama has established a new national monument at New York’s Stonewall Inn, the first such dedication marking the gay rights movement in the United States. The Stonewall Inn is a Greenwich Village gay bar and the site of a police raid and subsequent riots in 1969 that helped ignite the American gay rights movement. In a White House video released Friday, Obama said that movement “ultimately became an integral part of America.” Naming a monument at Stonewall Inn as a national monument has been in the works for months. But its official commemoration on Friday comes as America’s LGBT community reels from the mass shooting that killed 49 people at an Orlando gay nightclub earlier this month. That attack, categorized by federal officials as both a hate crime and terrorist attack, has added fuel to the debate over federal legal protections for the LGBT community that had already played out publicly and acrimoniously in the U.S. House this year. It also brought the gay rights movement directly into the political debate over guns: the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s biggest LGBT advocacy group, announced last week that it would advocate for stricter gun control measure after the shooting. The Stonewall designation is part of an Obama administration effort to highlight the LGBT rights movement around the country. The Department of Interior announced in May 2014 that it would conduct a “theme study” of important LGBT sites around the United States. It has named nine sites historical landmarks or added them to the National Register of Historic Places since then. “Stonewall will be our first national monument to tell the story of the struggle for LGBT rights,” Obama said in the video. “I believe our national parks should reflect the full story of our country: the richness and diversity and uniquely American spirit that has always defined us, that we are stronger together, that out of many, we are one.” Interior Secretary and National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis will attend a dedication ceremony for the monument — in neighboring Christopher Park — on Monday. —This post was updated at 2:00 p.m.

NWO Wounded And Backs Against The Wall - Will Trump Deal Its Death Blow? 'Globalists To Launch Wave Of False Flags' To Stop The Liberty Movement

June 25, 2016 By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

Long called 'conspiracy theory', a term invented by the CIA in 1967 to attack anyone who questions the 'official narrative', the 'new world order' and 'global elite' have been called out and rebuffed in huge ways in recent days, including a Brexit which sees those living in Great Britain taking their country back as well as the recent shock to Barack Obama's 'open doors to terrorists' immigration policy that was dealt a death blow by the US Supreme Court only days ago. As we hear in the first of two videos below from Infowars, the 'nwo' is wounded, and a presidency of Donald Trump would be THE opportunity to deal it a final death blow for our generation if not for all of time. Will Americans get a chance to take back our country from the globalist forces that have been attempting to rip our country away from us for many years with many warning that Barack Obama is leading the treasonous way? Susan Duclos told us in a story yesterday on ANP, after Brexit, the 'global elite' are now freaking out in panic and as we hear in the 2nd video below from Infowars and David Knight, the globalists are also unleashing a wave of false flags across the US in a last-ditch attempt to stop the liberty movement and Donald Trump. The only way that they can be successful is if Americans continue to stay dumbed down to false flag terrorism and the very real danger that Islam poses to so-called 'moderate' Muslims and anybody else not Islamic worldwide as ISIS terrorists continue global jihad. We have long warned that the globalists will never allow an 'America-1st' president to take office and we expect that they'll probably pull out all stops in an attempt to put an end to the Trump phenomenon, one way or another. As we were asked to do in a story from TruNews recently linked to on the website of Steve Quayle, if we are Christians, we should be praying for the health and safety of Donald Trump as according to Dr. James Dobson, Founder of Focus on the Family and a famous evangelical, Donald Trump has accepted Jesus into his heart and his life. Nearly two years ago, Barack Obama warned that 'there is not a force on Earth' that could stop his 'open doors to terrorists' immigration policy though now that it appears that his words have met up against 'that force', the US Supreme Court, which has told Obama he and his administration have stepped way over the line with his powers. Shouldn't a president or anyone else in America who are enabling and aiding terrorists in this country be held responsible for those decisions when they lead to situations like what happened in San Bernardino, California or Orlando, Florida, after Hillary Clinton's State Department blocked investigations into Omar Mateen's mosque? Isn't Hillary directly responsible for that 'alleged' massacre since her State Department could have stopped it if they'd followed through on their investigation? As we learned in this new story from All-Self-Sustained, this terrorist enabler has seemingly declared war against the American people with what they call a 'terrifying move against the American people,' a huge number of armed federal agents that have given him 'his own private army' that he told us years ago he was seeking to build. Telling us within this story that Obama's own private Army is even bigger than the US Marine Corps leads us to ask, are Obama and the rapidly failing 'new world order' planning on using this 'private army' against the American people in a last-ditch attempt to keep America part of the globalists playground, as well as keeping this country a terrorist breeding ground, rapidly expanding on Obama's watch? As we're told in the final video below, the globalists will likely attempt to pull out every last ditch effort and weapon in their arsenal in an attempt to keep control of our nation. Like a wounded animal with its back against the wall, the globalists now have very little to lose with their dreams of world domination crumbling, a rapidly awakening Western populace, and Donald Trump in the wings, ready to help Americans take our country back from the forces who have long been plotting against us. Will the globalists be successful in using their ultimate 'false flag' weapon, the ISIS terrorists that Hillary and Obama along with John McCain were responsible for arming, against us? Whether or not they soon pull off their 'final false flag' that leads to an America back under their thumb and the ever present boot stomping upon a human face forever or Americans finally rise up, once and for all, and take our country back, the answer is clear....only time will tell. This story of America fighting, once again, for freedom against globalist overlords is one of the most important stories in this day and age of humanity's fight for justice against this global cabal intent on forever enslaving the entire human populace. While Britain has temporarily won against globalists and tyranny, with Brexit, Americas fate hangs in the balance with an election only months away... and because of that...this story...will be continued. It's America's turn to take back our country's sovereignty now.

EXCLUSIVE AUDIO: Eyewitness confirms allegations that migrants raped five-year-old Idaho girl

June 22, 2016 Faith GoldyRebel Host

A five-year-old girl raped by Muslim migrant boys in America and the mainstream media’s first instinct is to dismiss the story and label local residents racist bigots and "Islamophobes"? The "don’t ask, don’t tell" doctrine on the refugee file is becoming painfully routine— but, playing politics over the alleged rape of a five year would seem unethical and indefensible. And yet, this week, that is exactly what happened. News out of an apartment complex in Twin Falls, Idaho: A five-year-old girl sexually assaulted in a laundry room by two refugee boys as a third boy looked on, filming the attack. An eighty-nine-year-old neighbour saw suspicious activity and approached the area to become eye witness to what can only be described as a fearful scene. Immediately, local papers rushed to discredit the story as false claims being spread to incite anti-refugee sentiment. And their narrative was bolstered the County Prosecutor who said there had been no Syrians, no knife, and no gang-rape. Well, just because the mainstream media was unwilling to follow up, doesn’t mean we here at The Rebel were about to ignore or downplay the broader allegations at the heart of this story. After one news outlet published the name of the alert eighty-nine year old who became eye witness to the alleged incident, I gave that woman, Jolene Payne, a call. WATCH my exclusive report about the incident and my conversation with Jolene Payne. According to Ms. Payne's account, there were three naked migrant boys in the laundry room with the naked five year old girl, who was covered in urine, and a fourth migrant boy stood outside filming the attack, which was what drew her to the scene. Ms. Payne does not know where the boys are from specifically but confirmed they were from migrant families. To be sure, according the the U-S State Department’s Refugee Processing Centre, Twin Falls Idaho has received over three hundred migrants from Iraq and over one hundred and sixty Sudanese migrants, while Idaho has received just shy of sixty Syrian migrants since war broke out there in 2011. Ms Payne, a former nurse, told me she had seen a lot in her long life but nothing like this. Ms. Payne also told me there was no knife involved, but that people might be confused because of another event in Twin Falls not long ago, which involved another migrant boy who pulled a knife on another little American girl. Ms Payne, referred to as "Grandma Jo" by the neighbourhood children, answered all my questions with consistency and a confident recollection of the facts. Her story did not sway. There was only one question I had left: Was there any evidence the five year old girl had been raped? Here’s what she told me:

Payne: Her dad and mother told me. And I told them, “Okay.” Yeah, that’s what they said at the hospital.

Goldy: So, the father and the mother told you that the little five-year-old girl had been raped?

Payne: Yeah, ‘cos they took her to the hospital in the ambulance and she was checked.

According to Ms Payne’s account, doctors told this little girl’s parents their five-year-old daughter had been raped. As stated in Islam’s Holy Book, the Quran, a woman’s testimony is only worth half that of a man’s and a woman needs four witnesses to prove a rape occurred. Often times, in Muslim countries, rape victims are found to be at fault. But here in North America, we aren’t ruled by Sharia law. And, despite bleats from the Left, there is no rape culture in the West. In America, rapists are charged, tried, and convicted based on evidence and the rule of law. In the wake of the Orlando terrorist attack, political correctness concealed the shooter’s Islamist motives and left the gay community in the dark. I pray, in the wake of the Idaho attack, political correctness does not obscure real rape culture to leave this little girl re-victimized, but brings her migrant attackers to justice so that they might never re-offend. (NOTE: This isn't the first time I've had to follow up on dismissed allegations of child abuse where the perpetrators were Muslim migrant children -- I did so in Halifax earlier this year.)

Obama Bashes Whitey in Speech at Entrepreneurship Summit (Video)

Jim Hoft Jun 24th, 2016 2:23 pm 261 Comments

Barack Obama spoke at the 2016 Global Entrepreneurship Summit Friday in Palo Alto, California. This was his first speech after the Brexit vote left another mark on his years of failed leadership at home and abroad. Obama: When people can start their own businesses it helps people and families succeed… It offers a positive path for young people seeking to make something of themselves and can empower people who previously have been locked out of the existing social order, women, minorities, others who aren’t part of the old boys network. Did you catch that? According to Obama only women and minorities aren’t part of the “good old boy” networks – run by white men. He must believe ALL WHITE MEN are openly accepted in all the “good old boys” networks. According to Obama, all white men are granted privileges and given access not because of their work but because of their skin color. Isn’t that racist? This man is so offensive – and ignorant. Of course, the liberal media won’t say anything because they believe it is perfectly acceptable to single out and abuse white men.

Trump: America has Chance to ‘reject rule by global elite’

Trump on Brexit: "Basically, they took back their county”

Adan Salazar - June 24, 2016

Presidential candidate Donald Trump on Friday congratulated the UK for voting to assert its independence from the European Union, and encouraged the American people in November to also assert their independence from the “global elite.” Following the British vote to exit the EU, Trump said the election results marked a shift toward more nationalistic tendencies.

Obama Declares WAR On America With TERRIFYING Move Against The People

There’s little question whether or not we live in troubled times, but a move from the Obama administration has many people questioning the motive behind it and whether or not it’s preparing for war with the people. As we all know, it’s illegal for our military to carry out any operations on our homeland against the American people. Of course, even if such an illegal order was given, our brave men and women who serve would ignore it anyway, as would many who served in the National Guard, which makes one wonder; why are our federal bureaucracies so heavily armed? A new report from Open the Books, a taxpayer watchdog group, found that for the first time in American history, there’s more armed domestic federal government employees than there are members of the Marine Corps, and that number is steadily rising. The Washington Free Beacon has more: There are now more non-military government employees who carry guns than there are U.S. Marines, according to a new report. Open the Books, a taxpayer watchdog group, released a study Wednesday that finds domestic government agencies continue to grow their stockpiles of military-style weapons, as Democrats sat on the House floor calling for more restrictions on what guns American citizens can buy. The “Militarization of America” report found civilian agencies spent $1.48 billion on guns, ammunition, and military-style equipment between 2006 and 2014. Examples include IRS agents with AR-15s, and EPA bureaucrats wearing camouflage. “Regulatory enforcement within administrative agencies now carries the might of military-style equipment and weapons,” Open the Books said. “For example, the Food and Drug Administration includes 183 armed ‘special agents,’ a 50 percent increase over the ten years from 1998-2008. At Health and Human Services (HHS), ‘Special Office of Inspector General Agents’ are now trained with sophisticated weaponry by the same contractors who train our military special forces troops.” The same report found that there’s over 200,000 armed non-military federal officers with arrest capability, and they have the same weaponry that the military uses. So what’s it all for? If you remember, on July 2, 2008, then-presidential candidate, Barack Obama said, “We cannot rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We gotta have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.” Perhaps that offers us some clues as to why these agencies aren’t relying on local police like they used to. So is Obama now arming these agencies so they become the domestic military force that he said we needed back in 2008? At the end of September 2015, Pope Francis boarded a plane back to the Vatican after and extremely controversial trip to America. Shortly after he left, Obama was back in the public eye, attacking religious freedom. Later that night, at a Democratic National Committee-sponsored event in New York, promoted as a “LGBT Gala,” Obama took the stage. During his speech, he warned Christians throughout the country that religious freedom was not as important as gay rights. “We affirm that we cherish our religious freedom and are profoundly respectful of religious traditions,” the POTUS said. “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.” Obama criticized Christian groups for their “genuine concerns.” Still, he insisted that the issue was being pushed by Republicans, who were simply trying to acquire more votes. Fast forward to today, and it is clear that Obama is more than happy to throw out our Constitutional rights entirely as long as he gets more votes for his anti-gun agenda. It is ironic that Obama ignores the constitution when it comes to our gun rights, but clings on to it to push his LGBT agenda. “America has left the leaders of the Republican Party behind,” Obama said during his speech in September, before lashing out at then-candidates Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, and Mike Huckabee. It is very clear from Obama’s actions that the US citizens needs to be disarmed while a new army (that will obey his demands) is growing every day. Where do you think his actions will lead? Well, that remains to be seen, but this much is for certain; these agencies don’t need this kind of weaponry given the jobs they’re tasked with, so something sinister appears to be happening behind the scenes.

'It's one of the most devastating I've ever seen': California wildfire kills an elderly couple, destroys 80 homes, threatens 1,500 more and triggers evacuation

Fire has broken out at Lake Isabella, near Bakersfield in central California

Several thousand people have been told to evacuate as flames spread

Elderly couple trying to flee from flames were overcome with smoke and killed, Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood said

A deadly wildfire that roared through dry brush and trees in the mountains of central California gave residents little time to flee as flames burned dozens of homes to the ground, propane tanks exploded, and smoke obscured the path to safety. An elderly couple trying to flee from the flames were overcome with smoke outside of their house and killed, Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood said. Their bodies were found Friday near Lake Isabella, a popular recreation area east of Bakersfield that was ravaged by wind-whipped flames, said Phil Neufeld, a county fire spokesman. At least 80 houses were destroyed in the southern Sierra Nevada as the fire burned out of control across nearly 47 square miles, leveling neighborhoods and forcing thousands of people to flee from fast-moving flames. The names of the two dead have not been released. The sheriff said his department hasn't been able to search very extensively and would be looking through burned homes with cadaver dogs seeking more possible victims. David Klippel, 78, a retired police officer, said he didn't see much of a threat after receiving an automated call advising him to leave. That changed dramatically within an hour Thursday afternoon. 'I've never been so close to a fast-moving, ferocious fire. It was unbelievable,' said Klippel, who later learned his house had caught fire. 'I almost didn't have time to get out.' Neighborhoods of mobile homes were charred to their foundations. Gusty winds pushed the flames and smoke farther into drought-starved terrain. The fire is 5 per cent contained. 'The forces of nature collided with a spark,' Kern County Fire Chief Brian Marshall said. 'The mountainous terrain, five years of drought and wind gusts of over 20 mph all drove a fire over 11 miles in 13 hours.' Scorching heat and tinder-dry conditions across the West have contributed to massive wildfires in the past week that have destroyed properties and sent residents to seek shelter and hope for the best. Laura Rogers was one of those who thought she'd never see her home or her brother's home again. Instead, she was lucky to find both standing in a neighborhood of mobile homes that was devastated. 'I was sure this place was gone last night,' Rogers said through tears as she gestured at the destruction around her. 'I mean look at this, I can't believe it. It's like a scary movie.' The downspout of her brother's home was melted on the ground, but the structure was intact. Dozens of other homes were gone, left in piles of charred sheet metal and cinderblock foundations. Scorched tricycles, air conditioners and TV dishes littered the landscape. Burned-out cars sat on tireless rims and leafless trees poked from barren, blackened dirt. The California blaze erupted quickly, putting some 1,500 homes in jeopardy. Three firefighters suffered from smoke inhalation. Crews faced a 'firefight of epic proportions' as they tried to protect neighborhoods, Marshall said. Officials said they expect to find many more homes destroyed as the smoke clears and they do a more thorough check of smoldering neighborhoods. Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency, freeing up money and resources to fight the fire and cleanup its aftermath. It also temporarily suspends some state regulations and waives fees as a way to ease the return of evacuees and those who have lost homes. Dramatic video from Thursday night showed homes fully engulfed and others already gone as propane tanks flared up and popped. Flames glowing in the steep, rocky hillsides were reflected on the lake. Residents described a frantic flight from communities surrounding the lake, a dammed section of the Kern River that is a destination for boating, fishing, rafting, hiking and camping. Cachet Kirby, 22, of Mount Mesa and her neighbors grabbed clothes, blankets and their dogs and fled through thick smoke as flames charged down the slopes. 'It was to the point you couldn't see, you couldn't breathe,' she said. She and others, exhausted Friday morning after little sleep in shelters and cars, were desperate for information about their homes. 'We could have gotten lucky and the wind shifted, or our house could be burned down,' Kirby said. Cellphone service was cut off in many areas, contributing to the anxieties. Very low humidity and gusty winds of up to 55 mph could worsen the blaze that broke out amid high temperatures and climbed over at least three ridges into hillside neighborhoods. Kern County fire captain Tyler Townsend said: 'I've never been in a wildland fire where I've seen so many homes burn. It's one of the most devastating I've ever seen.' Capt Townsend said many of the houses in the area have propane tanks, adding to the danger. Several thousand people were told to evacuate in Bella Vista, South Fork, Weldon, Onyx, Lakeland Estates, Mountain Mesa, South Lake, Squirrel Valley, and Yankee Canyon. But some have refused to leave their homes. Hillside homes along dirt roads were consumed by heavy flames in Squirrel Mountain Valley, a community of about 500 people. Smoky haze could be seen for miles around, and orange flames lit the evening air as planes and helicopters dropped brightly colored flame retardant on the blaze. Elsewhere in the state, cooler weather helped crews fighting two fires that burned more than eight square miles of chaparral and brush in the Angeles National Forest and foothill communities northeast of Los Angeles. More than 1,300 homes in Duarte and Azusa were evacuated, but half have been allowed back. Near the Mexican border in San Diego County, an 11-square-mile fire burned down five homes.

'Clock is ticking' for megaquake in Missouri that could cause 'all hell to break loose' across Middle America

The New Madrid Seismic Zone is 150 miles long

Experts say a quake would impact seven states - Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi

By Mark Prigg For Dailymail.com Published: 12:24 EST, 24 June 2016 | Updated: 15:46 EST, 24 June 2016

While San Andreas and Cascadia are well known for their potential to cause a megaquakes, researchers have warned a little known fault in the midwest is also long overdue a tremor. The New Madrid Seismic Zone is 150 miles long, and experts say a quake would impact seven states - Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi. They claim 'all hell would break loose,' with 715,000 buildings damaged and 2.6m people left without power. The Mid-America Earthquake Center at the University of Illinois released a report in 2009, which suggested the effects of a force seven or stronger quake from the fault line. Amr Elnashai, the study's lead author, wrote 'All hell will break loose.' The 150-mile (240 km) long fault system, which extends into five states, stretches southward from Cairo, Illinois; through Hayti, Caruthersville and New Madrid in Missouri; through Blytheville into Marked Tree in Arkansas. It also covers a part of West Tennessee, near Reelfoot Lake, extending southeast into Dyersburg. It is southwest of the Wabash Valley Seismic Zone. Most of the seismicity is located between 3 and 15 miles (4.8 and 24.1 km) beneath the Earth's surface, researchers believe. The area has not seen significant earthquakes for more than 200 years. In the winter of 1811 and 1812 there were three earthquakes of magnitude 7 - as high as 7.7 - and a series of aftershocks across the American Midwest.

West Virginia flooding, worst in '100 years,' leaves at least 23 dead, including two children

BY David Boroff NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Updated: Saturday, June 25, 2016, 12:04 AM

Some of the worst flooding in West Virginia "in 100 years" has left at least 23 people dead, including two children. Tens of thousands of residents were left without power and many roads were impassable after nine inches of rain came down on Thursday, officials said. The hardest hit counties include Greenbrier, Nicholas, Fayette, Kanawha and Webster. In Greenbrier, a flaming house could be seen floating down a creek. Approximately 100 homes have been damaged, and the death toll rose to 23 by Friday night, WCBH-TV reported. Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin said that there had been 9 inches of rain in the state, adding, "It's been a long 24 hours, and the next 24 hours, and the next 24 hours may not be an easier." Tornado kills 51 people, destroys numerous buildings in China His address came as the deluge brought unprecedented damage to the Mountain State. "Roads destroyed, bridges out, homes burned down, washed off foundations," Greenbrier County Sheriff Jan Cahill said. "Multiple sections of highway just missing. Pavement just peeled off like a banana. I've never seen anything like that." An 8-year-old boy and a 4-year-old boy who were swept away in different counties, authorities said. The death toll was expected to increase, said Cahill, who described "complete chaos" in his county. "Today's just an accountability mission, trying to verify where everybody's at and follow up on missing person tips," Cahill said. "It's really hard to navigate around because there's just a ton of debris. We've even had rescuers that had to be rescued."

"It's really hard to navigate around because there's just a ton of debris. We've even had rescuers that had to be rescued." Two earthquakes jolt Ecuador just a month after quake killed 661 The body of 8-year-old Emanual Williams, known as "Manny," was found after he fell into Big Wheeling Creek on Thursday, said Wheeling pastor Harry Croft. Manny's mother told him that she was walking across the creek with her son and daughter because Manny wanted to catch crayfish. One of the kids slipped, and the mother grabbed both the boy and his sister in the swift current. "She lost her grip on Manny," the pastor said. The 4-year-old boy, identified by NBC News as Edward McMillion, was found about a quarter mile from where he fell into a creek, which usually runs about ankle deep but rose to about 6 feet deep when Jackson County was pounded with rain. W. Va. man accused of killing 3 victims over firewood arrested The boy was outside with his grandfather, who jumped in after the boy but the water was rushing too quickly. Neighbors, alerted by screams, tried to help save the boy but were also unable to reach him. Belinda Scott had fled to the attic after smelling gas, though her house then blew up and killed her two dogs. She held on to a tree for more than four hours before being rescued, and is currently hospitalized with burns on 67% of her body, her husband Ronnie said. A state of emergency was issued Thursday for 44 of the 55 counties in the state. Tomblin authorized the deployment of up to 200 members of the West Virginia National Guard to help local emergency responders. N.J., Brooklyn kin of dead Fort Hood soldiers recall loved ones "We had swift water rescue teams out until late last night and back out again his morning literally rescuing people from rooftops and upper stories of houses," he said. One of those rescued from the top of his roof was Paul Moya, who is diabetic. "I'm still shaking," he told CBS News from the hospital. "I really just want to break down and cry right now. All I could see was the homes burning and the electrical poles burning. I think I could say that now I was scared." “We surely need your prayers, because there’s a lot of people hurting right now,” Greenbrier Resort owner Jim Justice told The Weather Channel. Pro golfer Bubba Watson was at the resort and tweeted photos of entire holes underwater: "Prayers for @The_Greenbrier & surrounding areas. We are without power & it's still raining. Never seen this much rain! #WestVirginiaBeSafe." Rescue crews on Friday began evacuating approximately 500 people trapped by high water at the Crossings Mall in Elkview. Eric Blackshire was able to get to safety when volunteer firefighters used a rope to guide people down a hillside. "It was kind of like a hurricane party. I guess you could call it a flood party. There were lots of beers being drank last night," he said. Kanawha County Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. Brian Humphreys said a temporary bridge may be needed to get everyone out. Richwood Mayor Robert Johnson said there was extensive damage to his city. "We pretty much live in a bowl, and the bowl filled with water, certainly," he said. Some areas were looking at flooding "that's going to be the worst in 100 years," said Chris Stadelman, Tomblin's communications director. "My mother-in-law has lived here for 80 years, and this never happened before," Mark Burgess of Elkview told NBC News. "There is nothing you can do. We can call for help if it's too deep, but it's OK right now." A dam at Summit Lake was operating normally but was being watched closely, the Gazette Mail reported. "The dam is still there. It is still functioning the way it is supposed to function," Ray Torres, deputy forest supervisor at the U.S. Forest Service headquarters in Elkins, told the paper. Across the state line, the crisis is nearly as dire in Virginia. Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency due to the flooding in Alleghany County and Covington. The Virginia Department of Transportation warns that more than a dozen Alleghany County roads were closed Friday morning. There were approximately 1,700 customers without power statewide. "It's really bad. There's a raging river," Alleghany County Chief Sheriff's Deputy Matt Bowser told NBC News. "There's 500-gallon oil tanks and trash cans and gas cans and tree trunks floating down the river where people's backyards are. You can see people in the second-story windows waiting to be evacuated." With News Wire Services With TOBIAS SALINGER

CNN Talking Head, Fareed Zakaria, Kicked into Touch by Russia’s President Putin

June 24, 2016 By Vanessa Beeley 5 Comments Vanessa Beeley 21st Century Wire

In October 2015, Council on Foreign Relations member and CNN talking head, Fareed Zakaria, made the following statement on his blog that aptly demonstrated the yawning chasm that exists between Whitehouse media mouthpieces and the reality of the war against Syria fomented and fuelled on all fronts by a US government protecting its geopolitical interests and those of its allies in the region in the only way it understands, via “regime change” “If defeating the Islamic State is important, then it has to become the overriding priority, allying with any outside forces that will join the fight. If Assad falls and jihadis take Damascus, that would be worse than if Assad stays. This doesn’t mean providing Assad with any support, but allowing him to create an Alawite enclave in Syria, of a kind that is already forming. The Kurds and moderate Syrians are creating their own safe spaces as well. Even if the civil war ends and a country called Syria remains, these groups will not live all intermingled again.” “So far in Syria, the West has combined maximalist, uncompromising rhetoric with minimalist, ineffective efforts. It is the yawning gap between the two that is making Vladimir Putin look smart.” ~ Fareed Zakaria In this mind-boggling display of that all too familiar American exceptionalism, the attributes of any world statesperson being entirely dependent upon their reflection in the US mirror, Zakaria set himself up for a crashing fall. That fall came when Zakaria was invited to moderate a panel discussion at Saint Petersburg Economic Forum, which ran from June 16th to June 18th of this year. Present on stage were, Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev, President Putin, and Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi. Putin throughout the interview manages Zakaria with his usual adroit and intelligent responses. However, when Zakaria confronts Putin with reference to his alleged comments on Trump, we see the full force of Putin’s razor sharp wit and intellect turned against the CNN frontman with devastating effect. The quote that Zakaria refers to is taken from The Hill and Political Insider among others: Russian President Vladimir Putin had kind words for his “stablemate” Donald Trump during an annual end-of-the-year Q&A session in Moscow. “[Donald Trump is] a really brilliant and talented person, without any doubt,” [Vladimir] Putin told reporters, according to a translation by Interfax. “It’s not our job to judge his qualities, that’s a job for American voters, but he’s the absolute leader in the presidential race.” [emphasis added] Zakaria with the smugness of certainty in his information asks Putin if he stands by his opinion of Trump. Putin responds with the certainty that comes from the experience of dealing with propagandists. He clears his throat and projects the sardonic look that he is expert at which illicits a ripple of laughter from his audience and fellow guests. Putin: “You are very well known in our country Mr Zakaria, and not only as a presenter with one of the world’s largest TV networks but also as an intellectual, so let me ask you, why do you keep distorting facts? The journalist tramples upon the analyst expert in you. What I said was that Mr Trump is a flamboyant, colourful, bright personality but isnt he flamboyant? He is, and there is nothing more to add. What I really like about him, and I very much welcome that, is Mr Trump said he would be willing to restore a fully fledged relationship between Russia and the US [applause]. I think everyone would be happy, wouldnt you? ” The Zakaria grimace speaks volumes… ZAKARIA: Turning noticeably red. The interview in full is a further demonstration of how Russia is stealing the march on its US rivals in every sense, diplomatically, politically and militarily in Syria. While our world leaders and representatives in the west trip over their own lies, Russian, Syrian and Iranian statesmen and women maintain a dignity, integrity and intellectual prowess that is captivating to watch. Here is the panel discussion in full, enjoy the second slap down regarding Putin’s working with Hilary Clinton: Last fall, another monolithic establishment media outlet, the BBC, dispatched its own institutional set-piece, John Simpson, to St. Petersberg in order to publicly confront Russia’s Putin. The results were similar that of CNN’s Zakaria, as Putin skillfully deconstructed Simpson’s own dry Council of Foreign Relations and UK Foreign Office talking points and one-sided world view. Watch that embarrassing exchange here:

Hussein Obama, 50; America, 0:More Adventures in Multiculturalism

Posted on June 16, 2016 by Fred Reed

Orlando? So what else is new? Why the excitement? I am puzzled that everyone is distraught over a perfectly ordinary act of terrorism by a perfectly ordinary Muslim terrorist. We have seen these attacks before and will see them again. They grow monotonous, like car crashes. They are as interesting as a commercial break. Why the surprise? We know Muslims kill Christians. We know they stone adulteresses to death. We know they drive airplanes into buildings. We know they mutilate women. We know they bomb airliners. We know they destroy historic monuments. We know they kill their daughters for losing their virginity. We know they kill homosexuals. We know they make coordinated mass attacks on cities. We know they are incompatible with societies of the First World. We know they have no respect for our laws. We know they hate us. Knowing all of this, what do we do? Why…of course! What else? We import more of them. Nothing could make more sense. Ten thousand Syrians, coming to your neighborhood. Thank you, Obama. Thank you in advance, Hillary. More precisely, Hussein Obama imports them. A black President with Islamic roots, barely American, who dislikes white people and recruits immigrants of his two ethnicities as hard as he can. We get utterly unassimilable Somalis in Minnesota, and all the Muslims he can find. Fifty gay men have just paid the price. For Hussein’s policy. The man fascinates me. The two worst actors that America has suffered since Lincoln are Osama bin Laden and Hussein Obama. They easily fit into any list of history’s most effective and influential men, being true geniuses. For a few hundred thousand dollars and an army of a couple of dozen, bin Laden stunningly humiliated America on international television, turned the country into a police state frightened of everything, inspired abrogation of its Constitution, and sucked the country into unending wars. On a cost-benefit basis, it was astonishing. He up-throttled national decline and has Americans hopping barefoot in airports while recordings on subways tell us to watch each other and report “suspicious behavior.” Hussein Obama is in the same majestic league. He has said that he wants to “transform” America, and he has, has he ever, by simply doing what he wants. He found and exploited the hidden weakness in American government, which is that nobody has the balls to tell him “No.” He has won by sheer force of will. You’ve got to hand it to the guy: he’s good. He has set the stage for, at least, unending divisiveness and very possibly for civil war. He will bring in as many more incompatible savages as he can before leaving office, and Hillary, if elected, will be Obama continued by other means. Amazing. The combined militaries of Imperial Japan and Nazi Germany could not do as much lasting harm as this one man. Why does he do it? Look at it as revenge for slavery. Obama bin Osama, I strongly suspect, does. Our post-racial President is in fact the most racial. For those killed by Omar, and their families and friends, there is nothing amusing about the slaughter. In a certain abstract sense, there is. America is like a man beating on his thumb with a hammer and yelling, “Oh! Ouch! Oooh! It hurts!” Why doesn’t he just stop? Well, that would be hammer-phobic. Countries deserve what they tolerate. They even more deserve what they encourage. From Drudge: “Imam speaking in Orlando said gays must be killed out of ‘compassion’…” Hmmmm. Might this not be homophobic? I dare not say so, for fear of being thought Islamophobic. Which I am not. No. I suffer from Islamonausea. It seems that gays have to be killed on the authority of some Fourth Century towel rack. It is because the Religion of Peace says so. If a televangelist in Kansas said that homosexuals had to be killed for Jesus, the entire zoo of talking heads would be on him like lice on a leper and the FBI would gin up fraudulent charges. Watch the media for the outrage that won’t exist as they cover up. You can bet that Hussein Obama will say nothing against his own people. From the standpoint of a curmudgeon, to which ashen-souled tribe I belong, the events in Orlando provide the gray satisfaction of confirmation. We in our dismal trade derive no joy from unavoidable sufferings springing from the routine malice of existence—cancer, automobile wrecks, birth defects—but we thrive on the self-inflicted, on the finger-hammerings accompanied by cries of “Ouch!” We observe that Muslims are nothing but trouble anywhere, so we import Muslims. We observe that diversity is the chief source of bitter strife in the world, so we open the borders. When seeking employees, we deliberately hire people who can’t do the job. In our universities we purposely admit those who neither can nor want to learn. Then, when the obvious, the predictable, indeed the inevitable unexpectedly occurs, we insist that it really didn’t, or shouldn’t have, or wouldn’t have, or something, and do it again. In its way it is wonderfully funny. Unless of course you are among the dead. In Paris the day after Orlando, another Mohammedan emissary of peace stabbed to death a policeman and his wife. (“Allahu Akbar: ‘Mohamed Ali’ Stabs Cop on Street, Slits Throat of Wife…”) Yes, Paris, the city in which heartwarming Muslims have carried out coördinated simultaneous bombings, killed editorial staffs of publications that irked them, burned banlieues and countless cars and successfully intimidate the police. Mon dieu! What can these isolated incidents have in common? Nobody knows. Perhaps the perpetrators were troubled youth. Actually the comic people are only those who generate a personal reality-distortion field and do hilariously foolish things. At the top of the political dunghill it is not stupidity but design. Or so it must be…mustn’t it? One expects academics to gibber and squeak, and neurally-challenged columnists and rabble studentry and talking heads and so on. It takes some very serious believing to believe that the governments of England, France, Holland, Sweden, Denmark and America are too stupid to have noticed what Muslims do, and what they are doing to those countries. Yet governments cover up, hide identities, punish observation as “hate speech,” and keep pumping the barbarians in. Why? Opening America’s southern borders make sense because it makes money for those for whom it makes money. Who profits from flaming arrondissements, explosions in subways, and dead gays? Ah, but the irony is delicious. London, once master of most of the world, has become a branch office of Pakistan and now has a Muslim mayor, who sets about correcting the morals of the English. No photos of women in skimpy clothes, you degenerate rascals. Can caning be far behind? It does a curmudgeon good.

Coincidence Crowed At Barclays Before Brexit

11 days after the Orlando Pulse shooting, the Orlando Magic drafted a player who wears #11 with the #11 overall pick, immediately traded for Serge Ibaka (pronounced “Surge”) on the same night Independence Day: ReSURGEnce opened. This was 11 days before July 4th and the following weekend The Purge: Election Year will open nationwide. PULSE – SURGE – RESURGENCE – PURGE. All events connected by the number that means chaos, disorder and judgment. One of the many non-coincidences from last night we will be covering. Barclays Center in Brooklyn would host the 2016 NBA Draft on June 23rd. Within hours of its conclusion, Barclays would release their statement, Barclays CEO on Brexit vote: “We have stood in service of our customers and clients for over 325 years … That does not change today”. Barclays was established on 11/17/1690, 5540 days later Benjamin Franklin would be born. The events of the past few weeks tie into America’s founding, through its independence from Britain. More importantly, we are witnessing what can only be described as conspicuous warnings that the world is entering a new phase in the coming years, if not sooner. Do NOT allow your eyes to glaze over when you see numbers. For those who can withstand the onslaught of information you will be blessed. Fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. If you fear God you need fear nothing else. Out of my fear of God I feel a responsibility to pay attention to His concealed glory. An artist would not much appreciate a patron of the gallery to take a quick dismissive glance. Our Creator is THE Artist of all, let us examine His work and not be shortsighted in what we think constitutes His medium. All the earth is His canvas. If it weren’t for God’s grace and Him providing me this outlet I would most certainly be institutionalized. This is both astonishing and vexing. After addressing the following question we are going to briefly lay a foundation with some overlapping dates which connect major current events. This will be followed by the fascinating connection between Barclays and Brexit, then some aspects of the Draft which jumped out at me. I had no intention of covering this stuff, in fact, nothing I intend to cover do I actually get around to writing about. As with most all other posts, this chose me I did not choose it. How insignificant we really are, in our vanity we make plans but then the NBA Draft happens. But Lord, people are complaining I write about sports too much… Sometimes I like to pretend to be the captain of the crow, a laughable reality for anyone who knows what goes down behind the scenes. The Question Frequently Asked – Why Do You Cover American Sports? One reason is that aside from Hollywood, sports in the west is the largest single entertainment category that crosses all social lines. Young, old, black, white, male, female, Muslim, Jewish. All can relate on one level or another to sports. You would be hard pressed to find anyone who hasn’t thrown or hit a ball, shot a basket or swung a club. The entertainment side of sports has taken on a life of its own. We have the personal story side, reality TV of sorts that appeals to the celebrity obsessed who may or may not care for the competitive side. We worship people, whether for their athletic prowess, celebrity status or both. It is usually both. Adults will find themselves engaged in heated debate over their favorite teams. In a world detached from the traditional human interaction between man and environment, the strategic faculties have been diverted to sports. A step away from fantasy in so far as it doesn’t involve dwarves and elves. The “manly” man, will throw beers at his television during the playoffs and the commercials tell us this is an endearing trait. The advertisements show us a beautiful woman busting her tail, keeping things in order, while her slovenly husband is yelling at the screen. This is America in 2016. Modern sports is the circus of Rome on steroids. Let me state that I have always enjoyed sports. This is not a blanket statement about individuals who watch sports, for I am one of them. We are talking about a societal obsession and a massive distraction from reality. The second reason I cover sports is that it is the most fertile ground for metaphor in current events. We have cities, numbers, colors, names and team names. Each of these individually carry a tremendous language in the symbolic which The Most High uniquely directs in ways only a Sovereign God could. This is what we will cover here, the unmistakable and inexplicable convergences that took place during the last few weeks. Call it what you want, but do not call it coincidence. Coincidence is a lazy way to ignore information you don’t want to deal with. Mystery is precisely that, not to be understood entirely, but it is a grievous mistake for anyone who claims to seek truth to dismiss something because you have nowhere to place it. In other words, dogmatic conclusion or bust. Here’s your dogma, Jesus Christ is the King of Kings, the Hope of Glory by Whom and through Whom all things which are both seen and unseen are created. He is coming again to judge the earth and those whose names are not found in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be cast into the lake of fire. Nothing that you can touch, see, hear, feel, smell or think about is outside His providence. So we enter in, we explore these matters without fear. The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.

11 days after the Orlando Pulse shooting, the Orlando Magic drafted a player who wears #11 with the #11 overall pick, immediately traded for Serge Ibaka (pronounced “Surge”) on the same night Independence Day: ReSURGEnce opened. This was 11 days before July 4th and the following weekend The Purge: Election Year will open nationwide. PULSE – SURGE – RESURGENCE – PURGE. All events connected by the number that means chaos, disorder and judgment. One of the many non-coincidences from last night we will be covering. download (1) Barclays Center in Brooklyn would host the 2016 NBA Draft on June 23rd. Within hours of its conclusion, Barclays would release their statement, Barclays CEO on Brexit vote: “We have stood in service of our customers and clients for over 325 years … That does not change today”. Barclays was established on 11/17/1690, 5540 days later Benjamin Franklin would be born. The events of the past few weeks tie into America’s founding, through its independence from Britain. More importantly, we are witnessing what can only be described as conspicuous warnings that the world is entering a new phase in the coming years, if not sooner. Do NOT allow your eyes to glaze over when you see numbers. For those who can withstand the onslaught of information you will be blessed. Fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. If you fear God you need fear nothing else. Out of my fear of God I feel a responsibility to pay attention to His concealed glory. An artist would not much appreciate a patron of the gallery to take a quick dismissive glance. Our Creator is THE Artist of all, let us examine His work and not be shortsighted in what we think constitutes His medium. All the earth is His canvas. If it weren’t for God’s grace and Him providing me this outlet I would most certainly be institutionalized. This is both astonishing and vexing. After addressing the following question we are going to briefly lay a foundation with some overlapping dates which connect major current events. This will be followed by the fascinating connection between Barclays and Brexit, then some aspects of the Draft which jumped out at me. I had no intention of covering this stuff, in fact, nothing I intend to cover do I actually get around to writing about. As with most all other posts, this chose me I did not choose it. How insignificant we really are, in our vanity we make plans but then the NBA Draft happens. But Lord, people are complaining I write about sports too much… download Sometimes I like to pretend to be the captain of the crow, a laughable reality for anyone who knows what goes down behind the scenes. The Question Frequently Asked – Why Do You Cover American Sports? One reason is that aside from Hollywood, sports in the west is the largest single entertainment category that crosses all social lines. Young, old, black, white, male, female, Muslim, Jewish. All can relate on one level or another to sports. You would be hard pressed to find anyone who hasn’t thrown or hit a ball, shot a basket or swung a club. The entertainment side of sports has taken on a life of its own. We have the personal story side, reality TV of sorts that appeals to the celebrity obsessed who may or may not care for the competitive side. We worship people, whether for their athletic prowess, celebrity status or both. It is usually both. download (3) Adults will find themselves engaged in heated debate over their favorite teams. In a world detached from the traditional human interaction between man and environment, the strategic faculties have been diverted to sports. A step away from fantasy in so far as it doesn’t involve dwarves and elves. The “manly” man, will throw beers at his television during the playoffs and the commercials tell us this is an endearing trait. The advertisements show us a beautiful woman busting her tail, keeping things in order, while her slovenly husband is yelling at the screen. This is America in 2016. Modern sports is the circus of Rome on steroids. download (2) Let me state that I have always enjoyed sports. This is not a blanket statement about individuals who watch sports, for I am one of them. We are talking about a societal obsession and a massive distraction from reality. The second reason I cover sports is that it is the most fertile ground for metaphor in current events. We have cities, numbers, colors, names and team names. Each of these individually carry a tremendous language in the symbolic which The Most High uniquely directs in ways only a Sovereign God could. This is what we will cover here, the unmistakable and inexplicable convergences that took place during the last few weeks. Call it what you want, but do not call it coincidence. Coincidence is a lazy way to ignore information you don’t want to deal with. Mystery is precisely that, not to be understood entirely, but it is a grievous mistake for anyone who claims to seek truth to dismiss something because you have nowhere to place it. In other words, dogmatic conclusion or bust. Here’s your dogma, Jesus Christ is the King of Kings, the Hope of Glory by Whom and through Whom all things which are both seen and unseen are created. He is coming again to judge the earth and those whose names are not found in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be cast into the lake of fire. Nothing that you can touch, see, hear, feel, smell or think about is outside His providence. So we enter in, we explore these matters without fear. The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof. Blessed are those who search out the concealed glory of God. Connecting Events by 11 and 13 For those who are new, it will be helpful to understand the Biblical meanings of 11 and 13. 11 is chaos, disorder and judgment and 13 is rebellion.

Barclays and Brexit July 8th at Barclays Center we have Nick Jonas performing, once again connecting us to the sign of Jonah. download (6) The Brexit inspired Dow collapse on June 24 took place 7 years, 7 months, 7 weeks after the September 29, 2008 collapse of 777 points. It was 7 years, 7 months, 7 weeks and 5 days… and the Sept 29 2008 drop was 777.68. 5 days is .71 of a week so at the time of the day the 2008 crashed occurred you could say it was .68. The Dow collapsed on June 24, 2016 losing 611 points. Of course 6 and 11 for those who have been following. Any number repeated three times in scripture means complete. 777 is 21 or the date of the summer solstice full moon (6/21) that hasn’t occurred since 1948 and 1967. Within hours of Barclays Center hosting the annual NBA Draft the country in which Barclays is headquartered would pass the historical vote to withdraw from the EU. For many these events would seem unrelated but as we drill down you will see this is far from the case. Barclays is headquartered in London. On June 27, 1967, 20 days after Israel reclaimed Jerusalem, they deployed the world’s first cash dispenser (ATM). There is a monument in honor of this momentous feat. “Lives made much easier”. This date was also 6 days from the 49 years and the summer solstice full moon which took place the last time in 1967. Barclays’ headquarters is One Churchill Place, London Borough Tower of Hamlets. Barclays is the oldest British bank in continuous operation. C Hoare is the oldest family run private bank established 20 years earlier. Barclays is the oldest public bank in Britain. The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it. Daniel 7:4 The day following Barclays and the same day as Brexit, the first LGBT national monument was established at a “bar”, at Stonewall Inn. This is on the 17th of Tammuz on the Torah calendar. We covered previously the significant events which transpired on this date. The other 17th of Tammuz is on July 23 on the Hebrew calendar (Hebrew and Torah are two different calendars). This is the day of the Golden Calf (Golden CAV) which connects us to Cleveland, the city founded by Moses Cleaveland. Pay attention to “cleave” it ties in. Stonewall Inn, known simply as “Where Pride Began”. God resists the proud, so this is one way to stonewall yourself from God. Here is the slang definition of “stonewalling” The idea being that the person is putting up a “stone wall” and impeding your progress in the conversation, and as you cannot see over the side of the wall, you have no idea why it is there. If you try to “climb the wall” to figure it out, then the other party will know your level of interest. No human pride movement is complete without the fist raised to heaven. “Love is Love” Closed fist, says there is nothing I want from you. It is defiance, closed and seeks to strike. Open hand says, I embrace, I give you myself. Open hands receive, clenched fists resist. Open hands raise in worship, closed fists take. Open hands love, closed fists impose. Bar-Clay Bar – stake or rod of iron used to fasten a door or gate. To fasten (a gate, etc.) with a bar,” from bar (n.1); sense of “to obstruct, prevent”.

Revelation 12:5 PULSE – SURGE – RESURGENCE – PURGE 11 days after the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting, the Orlando Magic select a player who wears #11 with the #11 overall pick, 11 days before the 4th of July.

Dr. James Dobson: Donald Trump Has Accepted Christ

4:00PM EDT 6/24/2016 Bob Eschliman

Is Donald Trump a born-again Christian? According to a well-respected evangelical faith leader, the answer is "Yes." (Reuters photo) Donald Trump, according to a new report, has accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior. No, you didn't accidentally click on The Onion. That's a factual statement, according to a well-respected evangelical faith leader. Dr. James Dobson, who was among the more than 900 evangelical faith leaders who met with the Republican presidential nominee-in-waiting in New York City, says it happened fairly recently. He also said he knew who led the businessman to Christ. "I don't know when it was, but it has not been long," Dobson told Godfactor's Michael Anthony in an exclusive interview. "I believe he really made a commitment, but he's a baby Christian. We all need to be praying for him, especially if there's a possibility of him being our next chief executive officer." "I think that he's open," he added. "He doesn't know our language, he really doesn't, and he refers a lot to religion and not much to faith and belief." To that, Anthony responded, "I imagine Saul, when he became Paul, didn't know the language, either." "Yeah, well you've got to cut him some slack. He didn't grow up like we did," Dobson responded. "I think there's hope for him, and I think there's hope for us. I have great concerns about the next election." Dobson said he was in the "small group" of 40 faith leaders who met with Trump earlier in the day at Trump Tower, and that he had a chance to interact directly with the Republican presidential nominee-in-waiting. "He's a lot nicer guy than you [think]," he said. "I think he is listening. There were a lot of people ministering to him personally." Dobson also praised the event, during which he said faith leaders were "genuinely seeking the Lord's direction" in the things Trump was saying. "He's sometimes kind of obscure in the way that he answers questions, and we wanted to ask him directly, with follow-up questions," he said. "We got a chance to do that." Draw closer to God.

Istanbul airport attack marks the latest of several bombings in Turkey over past year

Published June 29, 2016 Associated Press

A look at the suicide bombings in Turkey since July 2015:

-- June 28, 2016 -- Suicide attackers killed at least 36 people and wounded more than 140 at Istanbul's busy Ataturk Airport. Turkish officials said the explosions were probably the work of Islamic State group militants.

-- March 19, 2016 -- A suicide bombing rocked Istanbul's main pedestrian street killing five people, including the bomber, whom authorities identified as a Turkish national linked to IS. Like in the prior attacks blamed on IS, there was no claim of responsibility from the group.

-- March 13, 2016: A Kurdish woman blew herself up in a car at a busy transport hub in Ankara, killing 37 people in an attack that was also claimed by TAK, also known as the Kurdish Freedom Falcons.

-- Feb. 17, 2016: A suicide car bomb apparently targeting military personnel in Ankara killed 29 people in an attack claimed by TAK, an off-shoot of the Kurdistan Workers' Party, which Turkey considers a terrorist organization.

-- Jan. 12, 2016: A suicide bomber blew himself up in the historic district of Istanbul, killing 12 German tourists. Authorities said the attack was carried out by an IS-linked Syrian man who had entered the country as a refugee.

-- Oct. 10, 2015: Twin suicide bombings hit a peace rally outside Ankara's train station, killing 102 people. There was no claim of responsibility but Turkish authorities blamed the attack on a local cell of IS.

-- July 20, 2015: A Turkish national who was an ethnic Kurd blew himself up in in the southern border town of Suruc, killing 33 mostly-Kurdish activists and wounding nearly 100 others in an attack authorities blamed on the Islamic State group.

The awful Israeli-Hezbollah conflict to come

Willy Stern

Hezbollah has a nasty collection of more than 130,000 rockets, missiles, and mortars aimed at Israel. This is a bigger arsenal than all NATO countries (except the United States) combined. Why, a reasonable person might wonder, does Hezbollah need an offensive arsenal bigger than that of all Western Europe? "You don't collect 130,000 missiles if you don't intend to use them," says Matthew Levitt, a counter-terrorism expert at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. Hezbollah is a well-funded, violently anti-Israel terrorist organisation based in Lebanon and a puppet of the Iranian regime. In Hezbollah's arsenal are about 700 long-range, high-payload rockets and missiles with names like Fateh-110 and Scud D. They are capable of taking down entire buildings in Tel Aviv or Jerusalem, wreaking havoc at Israel's major military bases, killing thousands of Israeli civilians, shutting down the nation's airports and ports, and taking out the electric grid. And that's just in the first week. Israel's Dilemma Former Israel Defence Forces (IDF) Major General Yaakov Amidror is talking about the M-600 missile. It's a fairly accurate ballistic missile that weighs more than a Hummer H2 and carries a formidable warhead. The M-600 can also deliver chemical weapons. A single M-600 could wipe out a good chunk of Times Square and maim and kill people four football fields away from the point of impact. Hezbollah has a lot of M-600s. Amidror, Israel's former national security adviser, is asked what the next war between Israel and Hezbollah will look like. "We are not looking for war," says Amidror. "But suppose Hezbollah launches an advanced missile like the M-600 at the Kirya, the IDF military headquarters in Tel Aviv, or a large apartment complex in Jerusalem. Our defence technology quickly finds the launcher. It is right under a 22-storey residential building in Beirut. We can now see in real time the launcher being moved back under the building to reload." "We have just minutes to act," explains Amidror. "The IDF will have to take out the launcher because the next missile can cause enormous damage in Israel. But to take out the launcher means the 22-storey building may fall. We would try to use precision-guided missiles to protect civilians but the target is hard to reach. We will try to warn the residents but the timing is tight. That building will almost certainly be hit. And the images in the international media will almost certainly be awful." But, asks Amidror, today a senior fellow at the Begin-Sadat Centre for Strategic Studies, "What alternative do we have?" No good one, since the building in the scenario described would be a legitimate military target. So say a bevy of international military law experts, including Geoff Corn of the South Texas College of Law in Houston, who has studied IDF targeting policies: "After exhausting all feasible efforts to reduce civilian risk, IDF commanders must resolve the decisive question: Is the potential for civilian harm excessive in comparison to the advantages the attack would provide? When you talk of an M-600 in the hands of an enemy that targets vital military assets or the civilian population - even if that apartment building is full - launching the attack will be necessary to mitigate the threat." Professor Corn is well aware of what will happen next. "The international community will look at the images and will note that the immediate cause of destruction was Israeli munitions. But - and here is the kicker - both legally and morally, the cause of these tragic consequences will lie solely at the feet of Hezbollah." Hezbollah cleverly places its arsenal where any Israeli military response - even legal, carefully planned, narrowly targeted, proportionate measures - will lead to huge civilian casualties among Lebanese. Why? Hassan Nasrallah, Hezbollah's cunning leader, sees a win-win situation. He'd like nothing better than for the IDF to kill Lebanese civilians. And if the IDF shies away from attacking legitimate military targets in civilian sectors, then Nasrallah achieves both military and strategic advantages, and his fighters can continue to rain deadly rockets down on Israel's civilians, infrastructure, and military installations. Says one IDF officer, "We don't have the luxury of waiting, monitoring, considering." This writer spent two-plus weeks embedded with IDF units around the country, meeting with scores of soldiers, from sergeants to generals, from frontline commanders to nerdy intelligence analysts, from patrol boat captains to fighter pilots, from civil defence experts to high-tech air defence geeks. All these military tacticians and strategists were intently focused on preparing for the next war with Hezbollah. Why did the IDF pull back the curtain and provide such access not only to its top brass but also to classified documents, war-gaming exercises, and strategic projections? Because Israel wants the world to know that (1) a war with Hezbollah in Lebanon will be, unavoidably, awful; and (2) the massive collateral damage won't be Israel's fault. Even more than that, the IDF seems to be pleading to the international community: Do something. Stop Hezbollah. Before it is too late, and they drag the region into a bloody hellhole. What the War will look like What will a future war look like? Some clues: Hezbollah has amassed not just rockets and missiles. Iran has supplied its favourite terrorist organisation with other top-of-the-line weaponry. For military aficionados, these would include the latest guided, tank-piercing Russian-made "Kornet" missiles, SA-17 and SA-22 air defence systems, and even the "Yakhont" class surface-to-ship cruise missiles. Making matters worse for IDF planners, Hezbollah boasts a standing army of more than 10,000 soldiers - and could add two or three times that number of reservists in the event of a war with Israel. In short, since its last major conflict with Israel in 2006, Hezbollah has dramatically increased its combat capabilities and armoury. The terrorist organisation has leapt from the jayvee team to the major leagues across every fighting platform. True, Hezbollah is stretched these days from rotating its troops into Syria. But that also means that many Hezbollah soldiers will be battle-tested and tough; some 6,000 to 7,000 of them have been fighting alongside Syrian Army regulars in an effort to prop up Bashar al-Assad. Make no mistake: Should hostilities break out, there will be a deadly ground war. Aerial operations simply aren't enough to dismantle and root out Hezbollah's maze of underground launchers, tunnels and infrastructure that are aimed right over Israel's border. No matter how brave a face the IDF leadership tries to put on, in the next conflict with Hezbollah, IDF tanks will get blown to bits, aircraft will be shot from the sky, navy patrol boats will be sunk, and the multibillion-dollar Israeli offshore gas rigs in the Mediterranean Sea could end up on the sea floor. Many young IDF soldiers will be coming home in body bags. Nothing would make Nasrallah happier. He is clear in public statements that he'd dearly like to murder every Jew in the world but especially those in Israel. In speeches, he describes Israel as a "cancerous entity" of "ultimate evil" and joyfully calls for its "annihilation." Deterrence is a big part of Israel's defence strategy; acknowledging these scenarios doesn't sit right with many in the IDF's military structure. They don't want to frighten Israel's civilian population. Nor do they want to embolden Israel's enemies. But the IDF is trying really hard to give the world a wake-up call about what's coming down the pike. Even in a best-case scenario for preventing Israel's civilian casualties - meaning a vast majority of Israelis would be able to get into hardened shelters before the first deadly salvo is launched from Lebanon - IDF planners quietly acknowledge that "as many as hundreds" of Israeli non-combatants might be killed per day in the first week or two of the conflict. If Hezbollah's first missile salvos are launched without warning, the Israeli civilian death count could be 10 times higher. Israel's top military brass acknowledges that its high-tech missile-defence system will be "lucky" to shoot down 90% of incoming rockets, missiles and mortars. Hezbollah has the capacity to shoot 1,500 missiles per day. That means 150 - likely more - deadly projectiles could get through in a day. Israel's Iron Dome, David's Sling, Arrow 3, and other state-of-the-art systems for shooting down incoming rockets and missiles are the best in the world but imperfect. "Even with Israel's technological superiority, it would be a major blunder to underestimate Hezbollah's ability to do serious damage," cautions Amos Harel, the respected military/defence correspondent for the Israeli daily Ha'aretz. One irony: It's not only those in Tokyo and Chicago and Brussels who have little idea what such a conflict will look like. Many Israelis are fairly clueless. Residents of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem read about recent wars in newspapers every morning while sipping latte in their favourite café. Not this time. They will be in bunkers. Possibly for a very long time. IDF Major General (res.) Gershon Hacohen explains, "ATMs won't work. With the electric grid out, how will Israelis get to their 30th-floor apartments without elevators? How will they cook?" Israel will almost certainly be forced to try to evacuate most citizens in the northern part of the country. Why? Because Hezbollah's arsenal includes about 100,000 short-range rockets aimed at schools, hospitals, and homes. These rockets - including Falaks, Katyushas, Fajr-3s, and 122 Grads - may not be particularly accurate but they're also not in the air long enough for the IDF defensive weapons systems to shoot them down. Imagine if New Jersey shot more than 1,000 deadly rockets over the Hudson River into Manhattan every day. No doubt, those on the Upper West Side would also be a bit peeved. "There is no country in the world - not Israel, not the US, not in Europe - who would not go to war to stop a rocket barrage of that nature," explains Nadav Pollak, formerly in an IDF intelligence unit and today a counterterrorism fellow at the Washington Institute. Small teams of elite Hezbollah commandos will almost certainly be able to slip into Israel and may wreak havoc among Israeli villages in the north. One scenario that has IDF strategists concerned: A Hezbollah team infiltrates into northern Israel via small boat at night, kills every man, woman and child in a remote village, and then escapes into the darkness. The public relations value to Hezbollah would be enormous. "Anything that creates fear and terror among Israelis is a win for Hezbollah," says an IDF Home Front Command senior official. Thumbing its nose at legal and ethical norms for armed conflict, Hezbollah has strategically placed its launchers and other deadly weaponry in homes, schools, hospitals, and densely populated civilian centres throughout Lebanon. This arsenal is supposedly "hidden." Still, the IDF knows where many of these weapons are stored and shared classified maps with me. These maps showed remarkably detailed information indicating that Hezbollah is storing its weaponry in dozens of southern Lebanese villages but also in Beirut proper, where the organisation is headquartered in the densely populated suburb of Dahiya. Amos Yadlin is the Executive Director of the Institute for National Security Studies at Tel Aviv University. Given Israel's sophisticated, high-tech war-fighting machine, Yadlin says the IDF will have "clear superiority" in any conflict with Hezbollah. Deterrence matters. Yadlin and every IDF officer I spoke to made one point clear: A war with Hezbollah may be ugly, but Israel will win. Decisively. Military Law, Hezbollah and Israel Military law expert Corn is among those who believe Hezbollah should be called to answer for its unlawful tactics: "Hezbollah should be pressured, starting today, to avoid locating such vital military assets amongst civilians." Corn fears that "the instinctual condemnation of Israel will only encourage continuation of these illicit tactics." Corn is correct. Two conclusions are inescapable and well voiced by a world-weary IDF officer: "The next war with Hezbollah is going to be an absolute shitstorm. And we're going to be blamed." Civilian deaths in Lebanon will be a tragedy by any standard, but they will not be Israel's fault. The primary duty of every nation is to protect its citizens. Israel will do what any country would do if deadly rockets rain down on its cities and military bases: It will respond. In keeping with its history, the IDF is committed to responding judiciously and well within the accepted laws of armed conflict. But the outcomes will be very different from previous conflicts. Why? Because Hezbollah's fighting force and arsenal are those of a nation-state, but its tactics are those of a terrorist organisation. Tens of thousands of Lebanese civilians will almost certainly die. The international media - many either reflexively anti-Israel or simply naïve - will have a field day. The IDF is smart to try to explain its side of the story in advance. At least so says retired US Army Major General Mike Jones, co-author of a detailed report on the IDF's conduct in its latest conflict with Hamas, the other terrorist organisation on its border. "Despite what may have been reported on the 2014 war with Hamas in Gaza, we found that the IDF went to extreme lengths in Gaza to avoid civilian casualties," says Jones. Hezbollah and other radical Islamist groups are trying to delegitimise the laws of armed conflict; this ought to be of concern to all law-abiding nations and militaries. Jones believes that the IDF (and other Western nations) is "absolutely right" to try to get out in front on the strategic messaging issue. Yes, strategic messaging. The IDF has long operated under the presumption that being in the right was enough to carry the day in the court of public opinion. No more. Anti-Israel propaganda is everywhere. Many politicians, journalists, academics and policy wonks are eager to denounce Israel regardless of facts or logic. One IDF officer pointed to another possibility, namely that many reporters and average Joes simply cannot fathom the reality of war: "When one sees civilians killed, it's natural to blame the person who directly caused their death. But in war we need to look beyond. Civilians will die, but who is ultimately morally responsible? Is it the army that is forced to target military targets hidden among civilians - and uses precision weapons and warnings - or is it the group that deliberately puts its own civilians in the line of fire?" The IDF is aware that future conflicts with Hezbollah will be fought on at least two battlegrounds. The first, obviously, will involve guns, tanks and fighter jets. The second front will encompass the court of public opinion. Israel is wisely opening up its second front early. When the next war occurs, the IDF will endeavour to have both law and morality on its side. Will anybody care? The IDF no longer distinguishes between the sovereign nation of Lebanon and Hezbollah. Here's why: The terrorist group fully controls southern Lebanon, even to the point of limiting the movements of the Lebanese Army and also of the United Nations forces there. As well, Hezbollah holds significant positions in the Lebanese Government and parliament. As such, Lebanon's infrastructure will likely be targeted. The IDF may well go after Lebanese bridges, airports, highways, and the electric grid, and IDF officials want Hezbollah to know this. Again, deterrence. On the Border Hezbollah is also preparing, and not just missiles. I spent a morning on patrol with a senior IDF commander on the Lebanese border. We were in easy range of Hezbollah snipers. The soldier was wisely decked out in full combat gear, including helmet, Kevlar vest and assault rifle. It's dead easy to peer across the border into the tiny Lebanese village of Ayta Ash Shab and see a Hezbollah operative, dressed like a tourist, using a telephoto lens to snap photos to monitor IDF border patrol activities. All was quiet. One day, this border will not be so quiet. Firas Abi Ali, senior principal analyst on Lebanon for the London-based country risk consultancy IHS, rates likelihood of war between Israel and Hezbollah as "more than 50 percent" in five years and "more than 70 percent" within 10. A mitigating factor in the near term is the war in Syria, which keeps many of Hezbollah's best fighters occupied. But IDF planners cannot afford to think in these subtleties. "There's going to be a war with Hezbollah," says Colonel Elan Dickstein, who runs the Northern Command Training Base. "The only question is when." One of those preparing is Colonel Tzvika Tzoron, commander of the Haifa district in the Home Front Command. He has been charged with the unenviable task of protecting Israeli citizens in the northern part of the country, including those living in villages right on the Lebanese border. "We hope to give them a few days' notice," says Tzoron. "But who knows what will happen?" Who knows, indeed? "I go to sleep at night worried, and I wake up worried," admits Lt. Col. Ronen Markham, who runs a battalion of navy patrol boats near the Lebanese border. "I worry about what I do know and worry about what I don't. Most of the world doesn't really understand that war is ugly. War is terrible. War is bloody. War brings casualties. Lots of people - soldiers and civilians - will die. There is no way around it." IDF tactics and International Critics But Israel will try to find ways around it. If the IDF's conduct of war against Hamas in Gaza is any indication, the IDF will go far beyond the requirements of the international laws of armed conflict to try to protect civilian life in Lebanon. Some of the steps the IDF may take to prevent civilian casualties in Lebanon include dropping leaflets warning of impending operations, using aerial assets to monitor civilian presence, and carefully choosing weaponry whenever feasible. Several top-notch military attorneys from around the world criticised the IDF for its actions to protect civilians in the 2014 Gaza war. But the criticism is not what you might think: These attorneys believe Israel did too much to protect civilian lives. "The IDF's warnings certainly go beyond what the law requires, but they also sometimes go beyond what would be operational good sense elsewhere," says Michael Schmitt, chairman of the Stockton Center for the Study for International Law at the US Naval War College. "People are going to start thinking that the US and other Western democracies should follow the same examples in different types of conflict. That's a real risk." Schmitt is the author of a recent comprehensive analysis of the IDF's targeting practices. But here's the kicker: The IDF will apply the same legal standards in any war with Hezbollah, but with very different outcomes. Why? Because Hezbollah has far more dangerous missiles and operates out of high-rise buildings. Speaking bluntly, a senior IDF officer with an intellectual bent explains, "Bizarre though it may sound, it is lawful for more citizens to die. We will be applying the same legal tests in Lebanon but with far more tragic results." IDF Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Nisan Cohen winds back to the scenario of a 22-storey building in Beirut with an M-600 launcher in its basement. "Even with our best precision-guided missiles and with our best efforts to avoid civilian casualties," he says, "it's very hard to just hit the basement. It's even harder for us to explain afterwards why civilians were harmed." Cohen knows that the IDF is at a competitive disadvantage in terms of telling its side of the story. Photos of destroyed buildings are dead easy to come by and tug at the emotions, while the IDF often must rely on classified information to explain a specific strike. "We ask the world not to be fooled by propaganda and by images," says a senior IDF official. "Check the facts. Any reasonable and moral human being will determine that the IDF did the right thing in our targeting decisions. There is just a fundamental disconnect between everyday life and war. If you see a picture of a dead baby, you know that it's bad. You want to blame someone. It's nearly impossible for people to flip that switch and try to understand the legal and factual context of war." Who gets suckered by the anti-Israel propaganda? Plenty of smart folks. Take, for example, a State Department spokesman who ought to have known better. Asked in July 2014 if the Obama Administration believed Israel had done enough to prevent civilian casualties in Gaza, Jen Psaki said: ‘'We believe that certainly there's more that can be done.'' Really? What exactly? Military minds, of course, know better. In November 2014, the highest-ranking officer in the US military - Martin Dempsey, then-Chairman of the Joint Chiefs - said that Israel went to "extraordinary lengths" to limit civilian casualties in its recent war in Gaza and that the Pentagon had sent a working team to Israel to glean what lessons could be learned from that IDF operation. Yaakov Amidror recalls an event from his stint as Israel's national security adviser. In the late summer of 2013, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon paid a visit to Jerusalem. Just prior to a planned meeting with Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, Amidror got an hour alone with Ban and his aide-de-camp. Amidror pulled out his laptop and presented detailed evidence of Hezbollah's deadly arsenal and the fact that it was strategically placed within densely populated civilian centres. "What do you want us to do?" asked Amidror. Ban offered no response and no suggestions. Instead, the UN chief continued 15 feet down the plush carpeted hallway from Amidror's office to his meeting with Netanyahu. Is it any wonder that Israel is frustrated? Nobody, it seems, in times of peace is willing to offer Israel a constructive suggestion on how to deal with an Iranian-funded terrorist organisation in possession of a massive arsenal on its northern border. But these same organisations stand front and centre to criticise Israel for acting legally and proportionately for protecting its own citizens in wartime.

Supreme Court Allows State to Force Pro-Life Pharmacists to Sell Abortion Pills

National Steven Ertelt Jun 28, 2016 | 10:10AM Washington, DC

Just one day after issuing a major ruling striking down a portion of a pro-life law in Texas saving thousands of babies from abortion and closing unscrupulous abortion clinics, the Supreme Court has made a second anti-life decision. Today, the nation’s highest court refused to hear an appeal from pro-life pharmacists in Washington state who are challenging a state law forcing them to sell the morning after pull and abortion-causing drugs that violate their conscience as Christians instead of allowing them to refer customers to nearby pharmacies. A pro-life family that runs pharmacies in Washington State has been at the center of an epic battle over religious rights for years. In 2007, abortion activists convinced the Washington Board of Pharmacy to pass regulations that force pharmacists in the state to dispense abortion causing drugs. This caused a major dilemma for the Stormans family, owners of a third-generation pharmacy. Their religious convictions prevented them from selling drugs that destroy innocent human life. Yet the State insisted they do so. Click here to sign up for pro-life news alerts from LifeNews.com After the state launched an investigation, the Stormans family filed a lawsuit against the state for violating their First Amendment rights. That resulted in a years-long legal battle — one that has ultimately made its way to the Supreme Court. But, the nation’s highest court refused to take the case — making it so the infringing pro-abortion law stands. Justice Samuel Alito, joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Clarence Thomas, dissented from the denial and would have agreed to hear the case. They wrote: “This case is an ominous sign. At issue are Washington State regulations that are likely to make a pharmacist unemployable if he or she objects on religious grounds to dispensing certain prescription medications. There are strong reasons to doubt whether the regulations were adopted for—or that they actually serve—any legitimate purpose. And there is much evidence that the impetus for the adoption of the regulations was hostility to pharmacists whose religious beliefs regarding abortion and contraception are out of step with prevailing opinion in the State. Yet the Ninth Circuit held that the regulations do not violate the First Amendment, and this Court does not deem the case worthy of our time. If this is a sign of how religious liberty claims will be treated in the years ahead, those who value religious freedom have cause for great concern…. Ralph’s has raised more than ‘slight suspicion’ that the rules challenged here reflect antipathy toward religious beliefs that do not accord with the views of those holding the levers of government power. I would grant certiorari to ensure that Washington’s novel and concededly unnecessary burden on religious objectors does not trample on fundamental rights.” Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Kristen Waggoner reacted to the Suprem Court’s refusal to take the case in comments to LifeNews. “All Americans should be free to peacefully live and work consistent with their faith without fear of unjust punishment, and no one should be forced to participate in the taking of human life. We had hoped that the U.S. Supreme Court would take this opportunity to reaffirm these long-held principles,” Waggoner said. “The state of Washington allows pharmacists to refer customers for just about any reason—except reasons of conscience. Singling out people of faith and denying them the same freedom to refer is a violation of federal law. All 49 other states allow conscience-based referrals, which are fully supported by the American Pharmacists Association, the Washington Pharmacy Association, and 36 other pharmacy associations,” she continued. She told LifeNews: “Not one customer in Washington has been denied timely access to any drug due to a religious objection. As the trial court found, the government designed its law for the ‘primary—if not sole—purpose’ of targeting religious health care providers. We are disappointed that the high court didn’t take this case and uphold the trial court’s finding.” Margo Thelen, Rhonda Mesler, and the Stormans family have worked in the pharmacy profession for over seventy years. When a customer requests an abortion-inducing drug, they refer the customer to one of over thirty pharmacies within five miles that willingly sell the drugs. For decades, this has been standard pharmacy practice, has been approved by the American Pharmacists Association, and has been legal in all 50 states. But in 2007, Washington adopted a new law making referrals for reasons of conscience illegal. The law was passed in a cloud of controversy, with then-Governor Christine Gregoire threatening to terminate the State Pharmacy Commission and replacing Commission members with new ones recommended by abortion-rights activists. The law leaves pharmacies free to refer patients elsewhere for a wide variety of reasons related to business, economics, and convenience—but not for reasons of conscience. Because of the law, Margo Thelen lost her job, Rhonda Mesler was threatened with losing hers, and the Stormans family faces the loss of its pharmacy license. After a twelve-day trial, a federal court in February 2012 struck down the law as unconstitutional, finding “abundant evidence” that the law was designed to force religious pharmacists and pharmacy owners to violate their faith. But last July the liberal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the decision, upholding the law.

EU Denying Europe's Christian Roots Contributed to Brexit

By Wallace Henley , CP Exclusive June 27, 2016|12:20 pm

Britain has decided that joining hands and singing "Kumbaya" on the deck of the sinking "Titanic" that is the European Union will not save the ship. Wisely, a majority of her voters saw through the EU illusion and decided they should abandon the vessel. The British lifeboat will likely be on troubled waters for a while until she steadies on her beam, but that's better than being on a plunging ship. But why is the ship sinking? First, the EU's framers themselves blew a big hole in the hull. "Nearer My God to Thee," sang the perishing on the Titanic's dying decks in 1912. The EU is most definitely not singing that. The framers of its constitution intentionally left out reference to God and Europe's Christian roots because, they said, such inclusions might be divisive. They may as well have been singing, "As Far From God As We Can Get." A leader of Britain's National Secular Society said: "We are very glad a reference to God has been left out, it would have created unnecessary barriers in Europe ... Europe has to be secular for it to be really unified." In light of the disjointedness of European society one can only say, "Really?" It's pointless to include mention of God in the EU constitution because of "the increased secularization of morality and public life," declared the British Gay and Lesbian Humanist Association almost fifteen years ago. The thuggery and explosion of public disorder in many European cities shows graphically what that "secularization" has produced. Second, the EU "Titanic" is in peril because it is little more than the old Europe attempting to be a new Europe. Though many of the Brussels elite may disdain the past tradition of royal houses, they themselves have become every bit as dominating. For example, their flowery views of immigration are no less romantic than Queen Victoria's might have been whiling away a sleepy afternoon at Balmoral as the Prussians were invading Denmark. So the ruling highbrows in the European Parliament seemed oblivious to the way their policies were affecting workers in the British Midlands and big industrial cities. The shock was that this time the blue-collared Labour voters defied that party's potentates. The heaviest voting for Brexit was in working-class areas. The left is always shouting, "Power to the People!" Now that the people really have taken the slogan seriously the elites are stupefied. Even Hollywood, as represented by such profound political thinkers as Lindsay Lohan, is in an uproar. Leftists don't like authoritarianism unless it is their own. Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orban is one of Europe's most insightful leaders. "We want a democratic European Union with internal relations, day-to-day rules, an ethnic composition and culture which are determined by the people living in the countries of Europe, rather than by a Brussels elite," he told a radio interviewer. The current EU elitists are "quite clearly acting against the will of the European peoples," he said. Jonathan Sandys is no elitist, but he is the great-grandson of Sir Winston Churchill. He and I co-authored God and Churchill, which explores Jonathan's great-grandfather's spiritual background and providential destiny. Jonathan, a British citizen now living in Houston, very much wanted Britain to remain in the EU. "A United Europe was my great-grandfather's dream," he said, as we had a friendly debate. Jonathan, like his famous ancestor, has a broad vision. He is concerned for Britain's security in a world where Obama foreign policy has shredded overseas confidence in a friendship with the United States. "My great-grandfather would have voted 'Remain,'" thinks Jonathan. But I'm not sure. Churchill's vision was in the context of 1945 Europe. It was a continent struggling to rebuild after the Second World War. Europe in 1945 still remembered the First World War, when the august ruling monarchs, most blood-related, went at each other through the sacrifice of their young men. Churchill wanted a Europe that would live as a community, not an asteroid belt of colliding states. Further, as Jonathan and I show in detail in God and Churchill, Sir Winston saw the Second World War as being for the survival of "Christian Civilization," a term he used repeatedly. One doubts he would be excited about the rabid secularism of the current EU and its abandonment of "Christian Civilization." Jonathan and I, though disagreeing about the current vote, concur that Brexit contained important lessons. For one, he says, it revealed the weakness of the UK's leadership. Were Churchill in power now the vote would have never come up because he would have personally gone to Brussels and roared at the elites, confronted their errors, and demolished their authoritarian policies. Jonathan and I believe the UK vote is a wake-up call for Britain and its leaders, as well as the United States. But the current situation is ominous. Hillary Clinton's foreign policy flaws, from the casual handling of secrets essential to national security, to failure to grasp what is really going on in certain situations, are painfully obvious right now. And what of Donald Trump's undeveloped, unproven, and vague, sometimes even confused, understanding of global issues? Naïveté about the world and disregard for its member states are the jagged edges of the iceberg sinking the EU "Titanic." That, combined with the core problem of the rejection of God and the Judeo-Christian worldview, and the aloof arrogance and authoritarianism of the Brussels elite have caused the EU ship to not be seaworthy for the tempests roiling the globe. That's why she may break up on those troubled waters, and why likely there will soon be a rush to the lifeboats. Wallace Henley, a former Birmingham News staff writer, was an aide in the Nixon White House, and congressional chief of staff. He is a teaching pastor at Second Baptist Church, Houston, Texas. He is a regular contributor to The Christian Post.

WashPost: US Diplomats Face Harassment, Intimidation From Russian Agents

By Mark Swanson | Tuesday, 28 Jun 2016 02:09 PM

American diplomats in Europe and Russia have experienced increased harassment and intimidation — some criminal — tactics from Russian intelligence agents since 2014, The Washington Post reported. The State Department confirmed it to the Post, a spokesman for the Russian embassy in Washington D.C. defended it to the newspaper, and Secretary of State John Kerry has asked Russian president Vladimir Putin to put an end to it, the Post reported. The Post reported Diplomats saw an uptick in incidents — in frequency and severity — after the U.S. imposed sanctions on Russia for its invasion of the Ukraine in 2014. Some of the incidents Diplomats face, according to the Post: Being followed, including family members; Having foreign reported write negative stories about them; Having homes broken into and furniture rearranged, TVs turned on; Intruder defecating on the carpet; Slashed tires; Harassment by traffic cops. A spokesman for the Russian embassy in D.C. defended the tactics to the Post. "The deterioration of U.S.-Russia relations, which was not caused by us, but rather by the current Administration's policy of sanctions and attempts to isolate Russian, had a negative affect on the functioning of diplomatic missions, both in U.S. and Russia," the spokesman told the Post. The Post reported that Kerry had a dialogue with Putin about the tactics during his visit to Moscow in March, but that incidents continued after that meeting. At least one Republican blames President Obama for being an enabler to the Russian aggression. "The problem is there have been no consequences for Russia," Rep. Mike Turner, R-Ohio, told the Post. "The administration continues to pursue a false narrative that Russia can be our partner. They clearly don't want to be our partner."

Presbyterian Church USA begins General Assembly with prayer to Allah

Posted on June 29, 2016 by Dr. Eowyn | 18 Comments

The General Assembly of Presbyterian Church, USA (PCUSA) meets biennially in even-numbered years. It consists of commissioners elected by each of its 172 presbyteries. The GA is full of activities: sessions on hundreds of items of business, committee meetings, an exhibit hall, daily worship services, and mission tours sponsored by the Committee on Local Arrangements. This year, PCUSA’s 222nd General Assembly was held on June 18-25, in Portland, Oregon. Rachael Lee reports for Christianity Daily that General Assembly’s opening plenary session began with a Muslim, Wajidi Said of the Portland Muslim Community, offering a prayer to Allah, which had been arranged by the PCUSA’s Ecumenical and Interfaith ministry staff. After reciting a chant in Arabic, Said said: “Allah bless us and bless our families and bless our Lord. Lead us on the straight path – the path of all the prophets: Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad. Peace be upon them all, Amen.” Said then called upon Allah: “In the name of Allah, the beneficent, the merciful, let us praise the Lord. The creator of the Universe, the most merciful, the most compassionate and the Lord of the Universe who has created us and made us into nations and tribes, from males and females, that we know each other, not that we might despise each other, or may despise each other. Incline towards peace and justice and trust in God, for the Lord is one who hears and knows everything and the servants of God, the most compassionate, the most merciful. Gracious are those who walk in the earth with humility, and when bigots and hateful and Islamophobes address them, they say peace. Peace be upon them and peace be upon Allah. The prayer begins at the 14:00 mark: Mateen Elass, a former Muslim who now works with Voice of the Truth, wrote in his blog that PCUSA event “denied the gospel and lordship of Jesus Christ.” Elass criticized the PCUSA for inviting “a practicing Muslim … to lead the worship of Christians,” and pointed out that during his prayers, Said had asked Allah to convert the assembly: “Praying to Allah … he was pleading that the Presbyterians gathered there would be converted to the straight path, i.e., becom Muslims.” Utterly shameful!

That rumbling you feel is Judeo-Christian civilization collapsing beneath your feet

June 22, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) - It was a beautiful summer evening, with an occasional gentle breeze preventing it from becoming stifling. I was sitting on a restaurant patio with my wife, sipping ice-cold water and chatting about the week’s events while waiting for our food to arrive. Cheery chatter rose from the tables around us. The events we were discussing seemed almost weird and unreal in contrast with the pleasant Saturday evenings unfolding for the restaurant’s patrons. Everything seemed so normal. A group of women brayed noisily one table over, loud cackles chasing each other out into the summer air. One of their group rose to her feet on ridiculous heels and teetered off like a new-born gazelle taking her first steps. To our left, a middle-aged man with a huge bushy moustache gripped an enormous burger with both hands, eyeing it like a saber-tooth tiger deliberating where to lunge at a mammoth. The others at his table weren’t talking much, just smiling into their sweating, frothing beer glasses and percolating peacefully. All was calm, and all was right. The normalcy seemed strange, because at our table we were discussing recent cultural developments—Christians being slowly forced to the margins of society, the increasing threat of government intrusion into Christian education, new strategies to combat abortion ideology, and how the country we hoped to raise children in one day was already so much different than the one our parents had raised us in. On the surface, though, everything seemed lovely, and pleasant, and thoroughly unalarming. No wonder that people who are not watching carefully treat those of us raising the alarm as if we’re crazy, I thought, or maybe just victims of the newest viral conspiracy-theory YouTube video. Talk of “persecution” of Christians in the West sounds a bit ridiculous, especially with crucifixion coming back into style in the Middle East, North Koreans being publicly executed for owning Bibles, and Communist China mulling another crackdown on Christian churches. In contrast to that, Western Christians are, for the most part, still part of one of the richest generations in one of the wealthiest civilizations in all of human history. And yet, the Judeo-Christian foundations of the West that brought such success and such prosperity have either been removed or are in the final stages of demolition. The sanctity of life is gone, but most of us have not noticed simply because we do not toss the corpses of the murdered out the front door into the street, but quietly deposit them in dumpsters behind clinics or vaporize them in modern, up-to-date incinerators. New ideologies have taken over our legal systems, and the short march to labelling Holy Scripture as Hate Speech has already begun. The number of citizens who still attend church or are even aware that Christianity was the life-blood of our civilization is plummeting. Things may be peaceful for the moment, but the dark clouds in the distance bulge with thunder and the rumblings have already begun: Christian universities are told they are ineligible to start a law school because they believe what Christians have always believed, Christian medical professionals are told they will be forced to refer patients for killing, and Christian professionals are subjected to “formal investigations” at the slightest hint that they have violated the new secular religion. This is just the calm before the storm, but because Christians are so distracted with the high drama of ordinary day-to-day life, they may not hear the rumblings until thunder splits the sky. These rumblings are there for those who listen enough to hear them, and they are unfolding as we go about our day, stress about our finances, pick up children from school, and go out for pleasant dinner dates. Our reality is changing. Just a few recent examples: An Edmonton Catholic school teacher was suspended for teaching Christian beliefs in a religion class last week after being accused of “anti-gay” comments by a lesbian couple. A Manitoba school district has also been targeted by a lesbian couple, who are demanding that the children of other people be taught that their family arrangement is normal. They have retained a lawyer, and are bringing the district to a Human Rights Tribunal. A bloody killing spree at a gay nightclub in Orlando brought a widespread condemnation of Christians, with many accusing Christians who oppose same-sex marriage of creating the “anti-queer climate” that spawned the Islamic terrorist. One Christian commentator compared the backlash against Christians to the 1933 Reichstag Fire. Day after day, week after week, month after month, pre-born children in the womb are suctioned into bloody slurry and quietly disposed of, while our leaders declare this barbarism to be a good and noble right. The Canadian Parliament passed a law formally codifying the conditions under which some born Canadians can kill other born Canadians, with euthanasia now becoming the official law of the land. These sobering facts, amid a host of others, show us that while everything seems normal, everything is changing. The ground is shifting beneath our feet as the Judeo-Christian foundations of our society are removed, brick by brick. We need to notice these things. And we need to prepare for them. I write this because I catch myself shaking my head sometimes, at the difference between what I see happening in the culture and the many blessings I am privileged to receive from day to day. While it’s true that I’ve seen the bloody results of abortion up close and personal, and while it’s true that my job takes me into the heart of these existential debates, at the end of the day I can still go home to a lovely house, eat a delicious dinner, and quietly read books on a sunny porch. I have to remind myself that beneath the surface of society, things are changing that could very well impact all of this, and that it is our duty to do what we can while we can to reverse these trends. Later on that evening, I sat on my front steps thinking these things over, wondering what we could do in the face of changes that seem so overwhelming. There’s a Chinese proverb that’s considered both a blessing and a curse all in one, and it came to mind just then: “May you live in interesting times.” To my left, the traffic light made the asphalt glow blood-red, giving the quiet street an eerie feel. After awhile, the light changed and the road gleamed green. I smiled to myself, and thought of the lines from a Dylan Thomas poem that has reminded me often of the euthanasia debate: Do not go gentle into that good night…Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Courts say living by Christian faith illegal

2 cases establish wide range of government punishments

Published: 17 hours ago

It started out with hints of official, United States governmental oppression of Christianity in the wake of the Supreme Court’s marriage decision, such as “discrimination” complaints against people who refuse to celebrate homosexual behavior. Bakers, photographers and marriage-venue owners were penalized, and government officials publicly vilified their Christian faith and ordered them, in some case, to be re-educated. Now two rulings have cemented the American court system’s determination that Christians must not be allowed to express their faith in public life. The U.S. Supreme Court left standing a lower court decision that Washington state pharmacists who are Christian must violate their faith in order to practice their profession. The second decision came from a federal judge in Mississippi with a reputation for ruling against Christians who said county clerks in the state must violate their faith to hold their office. The Supreme Court’s move alarmed Justice Samuel Alito, who warned there was evidence that the “impetus for the adoption of the regulations was hostility to pharmacists whose religious beliefs regarding abortion and contraception are out of step with prevailing opinion in the state.” In the Mississippi ruling from Judge Carlton Reeves, who once punished a school district for allowing a voluntary prayer at an optional awards ceremony, said clerks in the state cannot cited their religious beliefs to excuse themselves from issuing marriage licenses to homosexual duos. Sign the petition demanding and end to the madness! No men in girls’ bathrooms, locker rooms or showers! That case already had been litigated in Kentucky, where Judge David Bunning reached the same conclusion, ordering Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis to violate her faith. When she declined, Bunning abruptly jailed her with no due process. But Kentucky’s legislature simply adopted a provision protecting clerks’ religious rights, and Davis asked that the federal case be closed. In Mississippi, however, not even action by state lawmakers was sufficient for Reeves, who ordered not only that clerks be required to provide services that violate their faith, they must be given “formal notice” of the requirement that they violate their faith. Documentation of hate against Christians WND previously has documented the Big List of cases where there have been government rulings that removed religious rights from Christians. Missouri State University, for example, dismissed a student from a counseling program for expressing opposition to counseling same-sex duos. In Iowa, Gortz Haus Gallery and bistro owners Betty and Richard Odgaard were sued by a homosexual duo. In Texas, David and Edie Delmore, who own a bakery, were approached by Ben Valencia and Luis Marmolejo about a cake for a “gay wedding.” They declined, referring the potential customers to other bakers. Subsequently, they claim their home has been vandalized and their son has been threatened with rape by a broken beer bottle. One business even was attacked for answering a hypothetical question on the issue. Family owned Memories Pizza in Indiana came into the crosshairs of homosexuals when an owner was interviewed by a local TV station in the aftermath of the adoption of the state’s religious freedom law. Responding to a reporter’s question, the owner said that while her restaurant serves “gays,” her Christian faith wouldn’t allow her to cater a “gay wedding.” The restaurant immediately became a focal point of outrage toward the law, with threats of death and destruction, causing the owners to shut down their business. The pharmacists It was the case involving the pharmacists that drew outrage from a minority on the Supreme Court. Washington state adopted rules forcing pharmacists to sell abortion pills to customers regardless of religious beliefs that consider abortion tantamount to murder. The state provided no exception for religious beliefs and refused to allow an accommodation that would simply allow pharmacists with abortion objections to refer customers to another location. After the Supreme Court refused to even review the case, Senior Counsel Kristen Waggoner of the Alliance Defending Freedom said all Americans “should be free to peacefully live and work consistent with their faith without fear of unjust punishment, and no one should be forced to participate in the taking of human life.” “We had hoped that the U.S. Supreme Court would take this opportunity to reaffirm these long-held principles,” she said. Waggoner noted the state of Washington “allows pharmacists to refer customers for just about any reason – except reasons of conscience.” “Singling out people of faith and denying them the same freedom to refer is a violation of federal law. All 49 other states allow conscience-based referrals, which are fully supported by the American Pharmacists Association, the Washington Pharmacy Association, and 36 other pharmacy associations. Not one customer in Washington has been denied timely access to any drug due to a religious objection. As the trial court found, the government designed its law for the ‘primary – if not sole – purpose’ of targeting religious health care providers. We are disappointed that the high court didn’t take this case and uphold the trial court’s finding.” Alito, whose concerns were endorsed by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Clarence Thomas, said the case is “an ominous sign.” “At issue are Washington State regulations that are likely to make a pharmacist unemployable if he or she objects on religious grounds to dispensing certain prescription medications,” the three agreed. “There are strong reasons to doubt whether the regulations were adopted for – or that they actually serve – any legitimate purpose. And there is much evidence that the impetus for the adoption of the regulations was hostility to pharmacists whose religious beliefs regarding abortion and contraception are out of step with prevailing opinion in the state. “Yet the Ninth Circuit held that the regulations do not violate the First Amendment, and this court does not deem the case worthy of our time,” Alito wrote. “If this is a sign of how religious liberty claims will be treated in the years ahead, those who value religious freedom have cause for great concern…. Ralph’s [pharmacy] has raised more than ‘slight suspicion’ that the rules challenged here reflect antipathy toward religious beliefs that do not accord with the views of those holding the levers of government power. I would grant certiorari to ensure that Washington’s novel and concededly unnecessary burden on religious objectors does not trample on fundamental rights.” Judie Brown, president of American Life League, shared the concern: “The Supreme Court is not interested in protecting the conscience rights of Christians. If this does not send shock waves down the spines of every believer in America who knows the difference between good and evil, not to mention what God expects of them, then they do not realize what is at stake. Five members of the Supreme Court of the United States apparently believe that their power is omnipotent. That perception of their power is not only wrong, but dangerous. God’s power is Supreme; theirs is not!” The issue there is that previous Supreme Court precedent not only bans favoritism to a religion, it also bans antipathy toward a religion or its beliefs. Mississippi’s fight In Mississippi, Judge Carlton Reeves has established a reputation for going for the jugular when an issue of faith is at play. He first ruled that a Mississippi school student’s rights were violated because she was offended by a prayer at a public school event. Then he reached off campus, fining the school $7,500, for allowing a pastor to prayer at an optional awards ceremony. The judge determined that Rankin County schools must work harder to excise Christian faith from its students’ education, and he threatened the district with a $10,000 fine if it happens again. His latest broadside to Christian beliefs, the AP reported, was in a lawsuit over same-sex marriage. Reeves said “clerks cannot cite their own religious beliefs to recuse themselves from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples,” AP reported. He also demanded that all 82 clerks be given formal notice. “Mississippi’s elected officials may disagree with [the same-sex marriage mandate], of course, and may express that disagreement as they see fit – by advocating for a constitutional amendment to overturn the decision, for example,” the judge ordered. “But the marriage license issue will not be adjudicated anew after every legislative session.” The report said Mississippi Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves, no relation to the activist judge, pointed to the crux of the problem immediately. “If this opinion by the federal court denies even one Mississippian of their fundamental right to practice their religion, then all Mississippians are denied their 1st Amendment rights,” Tate Reeves said. “I hope the state’s attorneys will quickly appeal this decision to the 5th Circuit to protect the deeply held religious beliefs of all Mississippians.” Message to Reeves It was the ruling by Reeves regarding the school that later created a stir in Mississippi. His decision resulted in the school’s band being benched from a halftime show at a football game, because as part of their musical presentation, they included the melody from “How Great Thou Art.” Columnist Todd Starnes at Fox News said the judge may issue an order, but the people may not necessarily bend to his whim. He reported the people decided “a message had to be sent to the likes of Judge Reeves.” “And what they did – would become known as the musical shot heard around the world. During halftime of Friday night’s game – a lone voice began to sing the forbidden song. ‘Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee,’ the singer sang. Brittany Mann was there and she witnessed the entire moment of defiance,” Starnes wrote. “We were just sitting there and then one by one people started to stand,” she told Starnes. “At first, it started out as a hum but the sound got louder and louder.” Soon “hundreds” were singing. “At that moment I was so proud of my town – coming together and taking a stand for something we believe in,” she told Starnes. “It breaks my heart o see where our country is going – getting farther and farther away from the Christian beliefs that our country was founded on.”

The Globalists Have Declared War on Nationalists

Dave Hodges

Trump’s populist views of self-determination are sweeping the planet and the elite are in a sheer panic. Only a few weeks ago, the sheep of the planet were being marched to their Armageddon. The dumbed down masses have managed to mount a ninth inning rally that have sent the elite into frenzy. Hillary Clinton Was Supposed to Usher in the New World Order Through the Fall of America The lies are exposed. Hillary and Bill cannot unring the bill, the truth has been exposed for millions of people to see. Two months ago, I called upon the Independent Media to step up their attacks on Hillary Clinton’s criminal behavior in a last-ditch and desperate effort to derail her presidential aspirations. After issuing my plea, I can happily report that I got more than I had hoped for. Merely a year ago, I was one of the few voices that was pounding away at Hillary Clinton’s sociopathic behavior. Today, the attacks are so bombastic and vitriolic, that I am joyfully reporting that I feel that my voice is being drowned out by a relentless chorus of voices that has Hillary Clinton in a death grip and they won’t let go. This is a great time for humanity. Even if the criminal elite unleash genocidal hell on Earth, at least humanity will die on their feet. There is absolutely no way that the criminal elite can stem the tide of rebellion against their corrupt and satanically inspired rule over the people. The criminal elite had pinned their hopes on Hillary Clinton ushering in the NWO by tearing down what was left of American sovereignty. From a Bilderberg, Trilateral and CFR perspective, this woman was sociopathic enough to do what would need to be done to complete this task. However, the criminal elite forgot to do one thing. They neglected to manage her public image. It is leaders like Clinton and Cameron which have awakened the masses, through their abject criminality, and the people are saying enough is enough. Clinton’s role in the emails, her treason by selling uranium to the Russians to raise money for her foundation, the Benghazi affair, etc., etc, are exploding on the national scene. Former Clinton campaign leaders and Secret Service personnel are speaking out against this despot. The genie will not fit back into the bottle. The elite know this and they are on the verge of a mass nervous breakdown. The playground bully has just been punched in the nose by the 98 pound weakling. Zbigniew Brzezinski saw this awakening coming in 2011 which prompted him to say the following: This is what wounded animals do, they lash out in an uncontrollable manner. The following op-ed piece written for the Council on Foreign Relations captures the criminal elite’s sense of desperation. The Face of Global Elite Arrogance Meet the face of global pomposity and unbridled arrogance. His disdain for “your type” is noteworthy and speaks to the desperation of global criminal elite. His name is James Traub and he and his kind are the absolute enemy of every American. He is the heir to the Bloomingdale industries and a prominent member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). Traub’s elitist views leave nothing to the imagination. Writing for the mouthpiece of The Council on Foreign Relations, he leaves little doubt that the the evil empire is going to strike back. It is clear that Traub and his fellow CFR elitist snobs are declaring war on any kind self-determination. He expects every Westerner to relish in their servitude to the globalists as he states the following in the article:

“the Brexit vote…utter repudiation of….bankers and economists”…

“…establishment political parties in major western countries must combine forces to keep out the nationalists”.

“…globalization means culture as well as economics: Older people whose familiar world is vanishing beneath a welter of foreign tongues and multicultural celebrations are waving their fists at cosmopolitan elites.”

“…(describes) the pro-Trump Republican base as “know nothing” voters…”

In one fell swoop, Traub validated several conspiracy theories, as being conspiracy facts as his statements admit to the following conspiratorial beliefs held by much of the Independent Media:

The bankers are involved in a conspiracy that work against the interests of the common man…all wars are bankers’ wars.

The Democrats and the Republicans are “establishment” parties and for all intents and purposes these two parties are two flavors of the same party.

There is an overt admission that illegal immigration is about decultralizing the west.

The “Know-nothing voters” who support Trump should be viewed with extreme disdain (e.g. extremists and domestic terrorists). Conclusion After reading Traub’s article, there is nothing left to the imagination, the elite are in absolute panic. This is what makes the criminal elite so very dangerous. It is my considered opinion that the panicked elite may resort to one of more of the following to reassert control over dumbed down masses, who are awake to the corruption that has ruled over them for so long:

False flag induced martial law, followed by mass incarcerations and genocide.

A complete economic collapse which will pit one useless eater vs. another useless eater.

Bankers start world wars of epic proportions. World War III could be right around the corner.

If this is not the future that you want for your children, you best get off of your backside and get involved in the planet-changing conflict.

Globalists Are Going To Collapse World Economy

Posted on June 29, 2016 Written by Amy S.

AFTER the financial crisis, the world is coming to grips with an unpleasant realisation: serious weaknesses still plague the global economy, and emergency help may not be on the way. Sinking stock prices, flat inflation, and the bizarre phenomenon of negative interest rates have coupled with a downturn in emerging markets to raise worries that the economy is being stalked by threats that central banks — the saviours during the crisis — may struggle to cope with. Meanwhile, commercial banks are again a source of concern, especially in Europe. Banks were the epicentre of the 2007-9 crisis, which started over excessive loans to homeowners with shaky credit in the United States and then swept the globe into recession. Gerald Celente is not the only economist who is predicting an economic collapse in 2016; Professor W. Thompson of Indian University also projects that the economies world over will see a downturn in 2016. Money is flowing out of so-called emerging markets like Brazil, Russia, South Africa and Turkey. Investors pulled $735 billion (€657 billion) out such countries in 2015 — the first year of net outflows since 1988, according to the Institute of International Finance. And emerging markets aren’t so emerging any more: they provide 70% of expected global growth. Central banks led by the US Fed responded to the global recession by slashing interest rates and printing money. That encouraged investors in search of higher returns to place their money in emerging markets. Now the Fed is trying to push up its interest rates, and those flows have gone into reverse, causing financial markets and currencies in emerging markets to sag. Debt becomes harder to repay. IMF chief Christine Lagarde has warned of “spillback” effects from emerging markets on more advanced economies. Stephen Lewis, chief economist at ADM Investor Services International, argues the Fed should simply go ahead with raising rates to a more normal level. “Unless we’re going to paralyse monetary policy in the advanced economies forevermore, it is inevitable that the funds that have gone into emerging markets are going to come back out of them,” he said. This book can help by walking you through a step-by-step process of planning, preparation and action that will help you get ready for the catastrophe you just know is coming. This book is useful for all those who wish to survive the coming catastrophe, and help their families and close friends to survive as well. Fortune favors the prepared. Get ready! Banks Banks stocks have been plunging in the US and Europe. In the US, low oil prices may mean companies involved in expensive oil and gas extraction will be unable to repay loans made to dig wells that are no longer profitable. In Europe, bank shares have been shaken by the bailout of four Italian lenders and fears about €1.2 trillion in bad loans across the 19 country currency union. John Cryan, co-CEO of Deutsche Bank, had to take the unusual step of publicly reassuring that the bank’s finances were “rock-solid” after investors pounded the bank’s stock. The spread of negative interest rates could reduce banks’ profitability, since it squeezes the different between the rates at which banks borrow and at which they lend. Sick banks can choke off credit to companies and dump huge costs on governments, shareholders and creditors. Events that will happen in the aftermath of American Economic Collapse of 2016. Martial law: Considering the widespread impact of a collapsing economy on the sentiments of people, it is expected that the government will use the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to its advantage. The NDAA will give the government the power to detain any individual considered as a threat for an indefinite period. RELATED : Fema Warns of Civil Unrest on 395% Food Price Increase Travel restrictions: An American economic collapse in 2016 can trigger travel restrictions, including suspension of passports. An economic collapse will also cause travel restrictions to be put in place at highways/checkpoints. Confiscation of wealth: A catastrophic economic collapse can make the government to take extreme steps, which also includes confiscation of wealth. The laws passed by the European Union give it the authority to confiscate bank accounts through bail-ins. Although real estate and precious metals are not covered under the rule, but it doesn’t mean that they are safe. Governments around the world have been known to make some difficult decisions whenever their economies are in dire straits, and 2016 can turn out that point of time in history. Shortage of food: An economic collapse can lead to shortage of food in the world. The food industry is expected to take a severe hit as it survives mostly on small profit margins. Economic crisis These were a few events that are likely to occur after the global economic collapse of 2016. As was the case with previous economic crashes, people who could see the tide coming were not only able to save their fortune, but also use the bearishness of the market to their advantage. Although the mainstream media will make you believe that the economy is on a solid footing, the ground reality is starkly different. It is everyone’s prerogative to take the right steps and save prepare for the economic catastrophe that will be the year 2016.

Greenspan Just Recommended Return to Gold Standard

9:50AM Update: Greenspan says the next unexpected U.S. economic move will be on the inflation side and “although we don’t have inflation now, you don’t have it until it’s there”. Greenspan also called U.S. entitlements the “third rail” of American politics “you touch it and you die“. He said the “whole entire U.S. Presidential election should be about entitlements”, but all of the candidates will be afraid to discuss it. Original Post: Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan was just a guest on Bloomberg news and recommended that the U.S. return to a gold standard! He then said, “if people call me a gold bug, they should ask themselves why do central banks own gold now?!”

Another Mysterious Death Surrounding Hillary Clinton - Former UN General Assembly President Was Scheduled To Testify In Corruption Trial Involving 'The Black Widow Of Politics' - Drops Barbell On His Neck - Just An Accident Or Something Much More? 'Bigger Than Vince Foster'

June 27, 2016 By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

What do you think the chances are that, while lifting weights soon before you're scheduled to testify in a corruption trial involving Hillary Clinton and others, you accidentally drop the barbell and the weights you were lifting upon your neck, ending your life and preventing your testimony? If you were the former President of the United Nations General Assembly John Ashe from Antigua and Barbuda, the odds became 100% just days ago after the former President, awaiting a bribery scandal trial, was killed during a weightlifting accident after he was allegedly 'accidentally asphyxiated' by the dropped weights. Ashe's death thus adds one more name to an ever-expanding list of people who have mysteriously met their untimely ends and, coincidentally or not, had ties to either/or both Hillary Clinton and/or her husband Bill as heard in the first video below. The story from Page Six tells us that the death of Ashe could become a bigger 'conspiracy theory' than the death of Vince Foster, especially considering Hillary is now only one election away from becoming the president of the USA. Seeing that that's the case, we felt it necessary to once again take a look at this ever-expanding 'Clinton body count' that likely just had one more name added to it. How is it that the Clinton family has been surrounded by SO MANY mysterious deaths? As of June of 2015, at least 46 people who were close to the Clinton's have met their untimely end. The evergrowing list kept by What Really Happened has just been updated for the 2016 election to include Ashe's death and the list is now up to at least 48. Is it simply a 'coincidence' that so many people have mysteriously died around the Clinton's or is there something sinister at play...such as...murder? Just knowing that Hillary is still running for president of the USA rather than being prosecuted while the list of bodies that surrounds her and Bill continues to grow shows how absolutely corrupt America has become and completely obliterates what the word 'justice' is supposed to mean. If these people can get away with having so many people killed and are still walking the streets of America with Hitlery now attempting to become president, law and order means absolutely NOTHING in this country any more if our 'leaders' can break the law any time they want and have others killed. Does anybody really think that the death of Ashe, or any of the others who mysteriously met their ends and were tied to the Clintons, will be solved and those responsible held accountable? If you really do, we've got some nice farmland right in the heart of Washington DC that we can sell you....and it's dirt cheap. Why would Americans even think about (s)electing somebody to the highest office of the land who has been completely outed as being 'pure evil' with a lengthy body count surrounding them as heard in the 2nd video below from Evangelist K L Rich? As our videographer tells us, it's clear the mainstream media doesn't want this information getting out there, but should the American people really be kept in the dark about this? Would a (s)election of Hillary, 'the queen of blood,' to the highest office in the land insure our total destruction? Would America even deserve 'redemption' if 'pure evil with a running body count' is voted into the highest office in the land or is a 'President Hillary Clinton' in our future simply another sign that America is rightfully doomed? From Mena, Arkansas to Vince Foster, from Benghazi to Mary Mahoney, from Ron Brown to James Bunch, we hear in the 2nd video below why Hillary Clinton is the 'black widow of politics'. If Hitlery in the White House is the best that America can do, it's only fitting that our nation would deserve the fate that another Clinton presidency would bring us. We'd also expect that such a situation would see a massive explosion of 'the dead' as Hillary gets the NDAA and the full power of the US presidency behind her to help her do her dirty work. If we thought Bill and Obama were bad, we haven't seen anything yet. Ashe — who was facing trial for tax fraud — died Wednesday afternoon in his house in Westchester County. The UN said he’d had a heart attack. But the local Dobbs Ferry police said Thursday that his throat had been crushed, presumably by a barbell he dropped while pumping iron. Ashe was due in court Monday with his Chinese businessman co-defendant Ng Lap Seng, who is charged with smuggling $4.5 million into the US since 2013 and lying that it was to buy art and casino chips. Ng was identified in a 1998 Senate report as the source of hundreds of thousands of dollars illegally funneled through an Arkansas restaurant owner, Charlie Trie, to the Democratic National Committee during the Clinton administration. (Ng was not charged with any crime.) Ng and Trie had visited the White House several times for Democratic fundraising events and were photographed with then-President Bill Clinton and first lady Hillary Clinton. One source told me, “During the trial, the prosecutors would have linked Ashe to the Clinton bagman Ng. It would have been very embarrassing. His death was conveniently timed.”

FBI failed to tell hundreds of Americans that they were on an ISIS kill list after discovering 15,000 U.S. citizens were potential targets

Names of targets found by security officials on encrypted terror websites

15,000 people were and potentially remain as targets for ISIS extremists

But probe has discovered hundreds of those listed never knew about threat

In Texas, just two of 24 people contacted were aware they were on the list

By Euan McLelland For MailOnline Published: 10:07 EST, 28 June 2016 | Updated: 13:34 EST, 28 June 2016

Americans discovered on an ISIS kill list obtained by the FBI were not told about the potential risk facing them, a probe has discovered. The names of more than 15,000 U.S citizens - including teachers, members of the military and art dealers - were found by security officials on encrypted Islamic State websites. They were and potentially still are targets for lone wolf extremists and sleeper cells looking to bring terror to American shores. However, at no point were many made aware of the threat they faced - only finding out when contacted by a team of investigative journalists. Circa News obtained the details of targets in New York, Texas, Florida and California. After phoning them, they were stunned to learn that the high majority had no idea about ISIS vendetta against them. Former FBI counter-terrorism agent Chad Jenkins was astonished by the lack of information those people had been given. He said: 'If we aren't notifying private citizens that is a disservice. 'If we're not then we need to be asking those questions as fellow Americans why that's not being done right now, especially with the evolving threat that we have seen so recently from ISIS-inspired and ISIS themselves here in America.' Between March 2 and the end of May, hacked ISIS accounts exposed eight kill lists. They included the names and addresses of 70 plus military personnel or family members, 56 New Jersey state police officers, 36 Minnesota state police officers, 11 county board members in Tennessee, 50 federal employees, and dozens of New York residents. In Texas, just two of the 24 people contacted whose names were on the hit lists were aware of the threat against them. One Austin woman who was told she and her friends were on the list told the site: 'I was terrified. We live in a different world and the Jewish community is a number one target of these radicals. 'I'm very upset that I was not notified by the FBI or local law enforcement.' When Circa asked the local police forces if they knew anything about their residents on the hit list, they too admitted that they had been left in the dark. 'We were not contacted by the Army or the FBI referencing the threat to our citizen,' Corpus Christi, Police spokesman Chris Hooper said. The FBI officials have said they planned on notifying every person on the kill list. A spokesperson said: 'The FBI routinely notifies individuals and organizations of potential threat information. 'We perform these notifications so potential victims are aware of possible threats and take appropriate steps. 'The FBI will continue to work closely with federal, state, and local partners to keep the public informed of potential threats.'

WHAT WILL YOU DO WHEN. . . . .

June 29, 2016 By Contributor 86 Comments

Guest post – Anonymous Honey Badger’s opinion…

The world is turning into a mass of S#*T real quick like! There, I said it. I’m a 55+-year-old who’s been married for over thirty years to the most beautiful woman on earth! I am a bacon loving, gun totin’, non-politically correct individual who remembers what it was like yesterday! You see what is happening today all across Europe. The Liberal Leftist attitude and socialist ways of thinking are destroying an entire continent by bringing in millions of undocumented and unvetted immigrants. They are actually teaching the Political Correctness crap in US colleges nowadays. Free Speech Zones? What the hell is all that about? America used to be a Free Speech Country, not anymore! Ideologists with very different political and religious views are wreaking havoc across the world. Paris, Belgium, and Germany are all catching hell! Why? Because the Left seems to think it’s more important to appease these “refugees” than their own citizens. Who cares right? You and I MUST! What will you do when this stupidity comes to America? To your state? To your town? To your street? Oh wait, it’s already here! Chicago’s mass protests with thousands of Muslims chanting “Death to America’. They are in America chanting that! That’s interesting, isn’t it? How about cities in Michigan, like Dearborn, that are allowing Muslim men to have more than one wife and be on welfare! Some cities are even considering Sharia Law. That means a woman could be stoned to death after being raped because she had unmarried sex, talk about a screwed up law! This would also allow men to marry little girls. . . Underage little girls! Your little girls. Sharia also says its ok for a husband to beat his wife if she doesn’t do what he tells her to do, or if she has a. . . . “headache!” Don’t even get me started on “honor killings.” I want to take this moment to say that I am NOT in any way against immigration or immigrants; after all, we are all immigrants to this great nation. I’m a mutt when it comes to heritage. Most of it is German but, there is some French, Dutch, English, and even some Irish. Yeah, I’m a mutt. All of our ancestors originally came from someplace else and assimilated into the new culture and we made it our own – America. That’s it in a nutshell right there. ASSIMILATION! Take a look back at American history at the turn of the 20th century (you could even go back a few hundred years, too). Immigrants from all over Europe poured into the United States, from China, from Germany, from Italy. They learned the “English” language, they became productive members of society, they became good neighbors, they obeyed the laws (well, most of them anyway). They embraced their new home and society, they ASSIMILATED! They became AMERICANS! What do you see in Europe today? None of these new European “refugees” seem to want to assimilate into their new societies. They are taken in by a host nation and then they riot for this reason or that. Why? Because they are NOT immigrants, they are invaders and they are NOT going to assimilate, they are there to wage a holy war or jihad against their new home in order to take over and rule the current population. For Europe, it’s too late! Why? Studies show that the Islamic invaders are multiplying faster than their local indigenous counterparts. They will outnumber the local populace in about 25 years or so! Most of them are not becoming productive members of society, they are actually getting food stamps and welfare for themselves, their wives (yes, often more than one) and their numerous children. This is counterproductive to society and is a form of financial jihad. They are rioting in the streets and the local governments are stretched to the limits to refrain and restrain since most of the national governments want to prohibit any actions against the so-called immigrants. Local governments often refrain from punishments so as to not “offend” their new neighbors. Sounds a lot like San Francisco, doesn’t it? Sanctuary cities – don’t get me started on that either! I have known many Iraqi and Afghani Muslims and have worked right next to several. Most of them that I knew were fine people. But, as with any religion, you have those that swear by the word of their Holy Books. They take every word literally. If you look back thru history, you will find that Muslims and Islam has been at war since Muhammad walked the earth. . . And they still are. So much for the Religion of Peace. I am a red-blooded American male and I’m not trying to insult anyone but, have you ever seen many European men? They have soft pale skin, no muscular builds, little facial hair and are generally soft-spoken. The average American male is exactly opposite! Europe is going to have a very difficult time with this Fundamental Transformation. Sounds a lot like what Obama spoke of during his elections, huh? Seriously, think about this for a minute. What would you do if you saw ISIS, their black flags, and their US supplied tan Toyotas cruising down I-95 or say I-10? Again, I’ll return to my original question. . . What will you do when this stupidity comes to America? To your state? To your town? To your street? What would you do if the next mass shooting, like Orlando, was in your town? Are you ready? Do you have the male fortitude to deal with it or will you, like so many other Sheeple, run and hide, to live another day in fear? Are you prepared to stay alive? Are you prepared to do what must be done in order to protect yourself and your family and you neighborhood and your city? A side note: There are over 30 Muslim Jihadist Training Compounds in 17 states. Pity the US Government allows this, because they know! Whose side are they on anyway? Hint – it’s not yours or mine! Is there one in your state? It might behoove you to do some research to find out! I will not go looking for it but, if trouble comes to me, I’m all in and it’s going to get ugly real quick. Sorry but, like the old saying goes, “I’d rather die on my feet, than live on my knees.” If it EVER comes to my town or anywhere near it for that matter, I promise you this, I may be end up dead in that fight, but I will NOT the first to fall!

Secret cabal of Gaddafi loyalists rescued Americans trapped during Benghazi terror attacks despite Obama's role in deposing Libyan dictator, damning report claims

Libyans loyal to Colonel Gaddafi saved American lives in Benghazi

Intelligence failures led to the fatal attack on the US consulate in 2012

A 800-page report has criticized the lack of military response on the day

The $7million report did not find any evidence against Hillary Clinton

By Darren Boyle for MailOnline Published: 03:35 EST, 29 June 2016 | Updated: 08:54 EST, 29 June 2016

A secret cabal of Gaddafi loyalists rescued US personnel trapped during the Benghazi terror attacks on September 11, 2012 despite President Obama's attempts to overthrow the Libyan dictator.

The CIA was unaware of the group at the time of the attack which was launched on the US consulate in the coastal city which claimed the lives of four Americans, including the Ambassador Chris Stevens, according to an 800-page report. The report, which cost $7 million and included a two-year investigation into the events surrounding the attack did not find any 'smoking gun' aimed at current presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who at that time was Secretary of State. On September 11, 2012 a group of heavily-armed men stormed the US consulate. Ambassador Stevens and State Department officer Sean Smith were separated from the joint Libyan / American team providing security for the consulate. Stevens and Smith retreated to a 'safe room' in the consulate behind a heavy steel door. However, the terrorists set fire to the building and it is believed both men died of smoke inhalation. Their bodies were recovered from the building by a group of Libyans, now believed to be Gaddafi loyalists, according to the new 800-page report. Some five hours after the initial attack on the compound, militants launched a mortar attack on a separate CIA compound killing former US Navy SEALS Glen Doherty and Tyrone S. Woods. Two other Americans were wounded. Clinton was grilled by the House Benghazi committee for almost 11 hours. Republican Trey Gowdy asked 'the American people to read this report for themselves, look at the evidence we have collected and reach their own conclusions'. The report is highly critical of intelligence failures which failed to predict the fatal assault as well as the military who failed to act. Clinton defended herself claiming the report did not uncover any further evidence against her. 'I think i'ts pretty clear it's time to move on.' Both Clinton and President Barack Obama faced criticism after trying to blame the assault on a protest against an offensive film about Muslims, instead of a pre-arranged terrorist attack. Military leaders have testified repeatedly that they didn't have intelligence information on what was happening or the resources on alert to respond in time to the attacks, which occurred at two separate locations over 13 hours. The State Department also issued a statement Tuesday, saying that the 'essential facts' of the attacks 'have been known for some time', and have been the subject of numerous reviews, including one by an independent review board. The State Department defended locating a diplomatic outpost in the eastern coastal city of Benghazi. A report by the House Benghazi panel is faulting the military for its slow response sending resources to Benghazi, Libya, during deadly 2012 attacks on a U.S. outpost - despite clear orders from President Barack Obama and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. Gowdy says the Libyan forces that evacuated Americans from the CIA annex in Benghazi were not affiliated with any of the militias the CIA or State Department had developed a relationship with during the previous 18 months.

Muslim in Eastern Uganda Burns 9-Year-Old Son for Accepting Christ, Sources Say

Boy tied to tree with dry leaves that catch fire.

June 24, 2016 By Our East Africa Correspondent -

NAIROBI, Kenya (Morning Star News) – The Muslim father of a 9-year-old boy in eastern Uganda who put his faith in Christ this month tied his son to a tree and burned him, sources said. Nassif Malagara of the Kakira Parish area, Kisozi Sub-County, Kamuli District decided to become a Christian after a neighbor took him to visit a church in another village, undisclosed for security reasons, on June 5. “At the end of the service, Nassif remained behind and then followed me to the church’s pastry room and requested that he wanted to receive Jesus as his personal savior,” the pastor of the church told Morning Star News. “I was a bit hesitant, but after his continuous press, I then prayed with him, and he left.” Nassif subsequently declined to participate in any Muslim activities, including attending a madrassa (Islamic school), the pastor said. His father, 36-year-old Abubakar Malagara, and stepmother, Madina Namwaje, 35, became furious when they learned he had converted to Christianity, the pastor said. The boy told Morning Star News that his parents prohibited him from eating, beyond the day-time fast of Ramadan, so that he went without food for two days before sneaking to his neighbor’s house for food. He brought food back to his home over the next few days, and on June 9 his father caught him eating. “He started beating me up with sticks, but I managed to escape to a nearby bush,” Nassif said. “My father then followed me and got hold of me back to the homestead, where he tied me up to a banana tree. He went into the house and came back with a hot piece of wood. The banana tree had dry leaves, which caught fire and caused serious burns on my body.” Neighbors heard his screams for help and rescued him, he said, and took him to Kamuli Hospital. The hospital’s Walwawo Zubari told Morning Star News that Nassif had burns on several parts of his body. “Nassif has been recovering, but at a very slow pace,” Zubari said. “He might need to be referred to another hospital for specialized treatment.” A relative told Morning Star News that she hopes to take custody of Nassif after his release from the hospital. Area residents alerted Kisozi Police Post, and officers arrested Malagara, registering the case under reference number CRR044/2016. Malagara, who attends Nankaduro mosque, has been released on bail. The neighbor (name withheld for security reasons) who introduced Nassif to the church said he fears for his life after receiving a threatening text message on his phone. “We know that you are behind the conversion of Nassif to Christianity,” the message read. “You will soon reap what you have sown, which will be a lesson to others. Islam is against such conversion.” The sender blocked his identity, but the neighbor said he suspects Malagara might have used another Muslim’s phone to send the message. About 85 percent of the people in Uganda are Christian and 11 percent Muslim, with some eastern areas having large Muslim populations. The country’s constitution and other laws provide for religious freedom, including the right to propagate one’s faith and convert from one faith to another. Kamuli District is about 220 kilometers (136 miles) from Mbale Town in eastern Uganda. Nassif’s case comes after a Christian in eastern Uganda who had received death threats from Muslims after a religious discussion was killed on June 4. The body of Yokannah Zirinkuma of Kasasira village, Kibuku District, was found in a pool of blood in nearby Kadama village, near the home of the primary suspect. Zirinkuma was 50. On May 15 in Kasecha village, Kibuku District, Micah Byamukama, pastor of Kasecha Baptist Church, died at Kabweri Health Centre after ingesting an insecticide that a Muslim villager was suspected of putting into his food. He was 61. On May 8 in Mbaale village, Imanyiro Sub-County, Mayuge District, a Muslim strangled his wife to death for leaving Islam, relatives and neighbors said. Awali Kakaire, 34, allegedly killed Mariam Nakirya for embracing Christianity. She was 30. On April 19, Muslims in Pallisa District beat and raped a young Christian woman for testifying that a mosque leader killed her father because of his faith, sources said. The imam at a mosque in Kanyumu village, Sheikh Musana Ibrahim, and two other Muslims killed Samson Mukama on Jan. 28, according to his daughter. On April 4, a Muslim in Kachomo village, Budaka District, attacked his wife for becoming a Christian, telling a judge that Islam allows him to kill any apostate, sources said. Having moved to another village with their four children following an attack last year, Ntende Hawa, 38, said she was visiting her estranged husband to discuss child support when he questioned her about her faith and began strangling her. Her husband’s brother stopped the assault. Threats from hard-line Muslims and the rape of her 13-year-old daughter forced a Christian mother of five children to flee their village in eastern Uganda in March, sources said. Amina Napiya, a 42-year-old widow, fled her home in Nakajete village, Budaka Town Council, on March 16. Napiya and her five children fled after receiving a text message that the family would be killed for leaving Islam, she said. Napiya’s daughter was raped on Feb. 25 while fetching firewood a kilometer from their home at about 4:30 p.m., the widow said. Napiya believes relatives may have hired Taika Suleiman, arrested in connection with the alleged rape, to assault her daughter because of their faith, as her daughter told her that the rapist said, “This is the second warning to your mother for disgracing the faith of the Muslims.” On Jan. 10, relatives of Abdu Nsera, a recent high school graduate in Katende village near Busede, Jinja District, beat him after finding out he had left Islam to become a Christian. They burned down a house they had built for him and have been searching for him after he fled. On Jan. 27 in Numuseru village, Naboa Sub-County in Budaka District, the body of Laurence Maiso was found at his house, his head in a pool of blood. Four days earlier, Imam Kamulali Hussein had met him and his wife on a local road and told him, “Allah is about to send to you the Angel of Death in your house. Please prepare to meet him at any time.” On Dec. 23, 2015, a pastor in eastern Uganda was hacked to death as he and other church members resisted an effort by Muslims to take over their land in Nansololo village near Mazuba, in Namutumba District, area church leaders said. Pastor Bongo Martin is survived by a widow and two children. In another area of eastern Uganda, five underground Christians in a predominantly Muslim village, including a pregnant mother, died from a pesticide put into their food after a Bible study on Dec. 18, area sources said. The Bible study took place in Kachomo village, Kachomo Sub-County, Budaka District at the home of Hajii Suleiman Sajjabi, a convert from Islam who had begun the study with eight family members who had come to faith in Christ under his influence. Four of Sajjabi’s relatives have died, as did a pregnant neighbor, according to area sources. A doctor at Mbale Regional Hospital said a postmortem test showed a substance known as Malathion, a low-toxicity pesticide, in those who had died. Though low-level toxic, Malathion when ingested quickly metabolizes into highly toxic Tomalaoxon. Islamic extremists in eastern Uganda on Dec. 8, 2015 set a deadly trap for a Christian policeman who had left Islam, and the next day other hard-line Muslims kidnapped three children from another convert in a nearby village. More than 20 Muslim extremists in the Komodo area of Kadama Sub-County, Kibuku District, killed officer Ismail Kuloba at about 4 p.m. after he responded to an urgent call to intervene in a supposed land dispute between warring parties, an area Christian told Morning Star News. Kuloba was 43. One of the assailants, Mudangha Kasimu, threw a stone that hit Kuloba in the forehead. Kasimu then shot him twice in the head, and he died as other Muslims were shouting, ‘Allah Akbar [God is greater],’” sources said. About 12 miles east in Kabuna, near Budaka in Kaderuna District, a group of Muslim men from Pallisa on Dec. 9 kidnapped three children of Madengho Badir, a Christian convert from Islam, sources said. Badir, 42, arrived at his home in Kabuna Sub-County, Kabuna parish, at 10 p.m. to find 5-year-old Nabukwasi Shakira, 7-year-old Gessa Amuza and 10-year-old Wagti Musitafa missing. An area source said a 14-year-old boy from Kabuna, Karami Hassan, was with Badir’s three children when they were abducted near their home. The boy said a group of Muslims from Pallisa were looking for Badir, and the boy led them to Badir’s children. Outside of Kabeshai, near Pallisa, a Christian father of five who supported 10 children whose families had disowned them for leaving Islam was killed on Dec. 2. One of three men who attacked Patrick Ojangole reproached him for failing to heed a warning to cease his Christian activities before the Christian was killed, said a witness who was with Ojangole and escaped. Ojangole was 43. On Nov. 12, 2015, the father of a young Muslim woman in east Uganda tried to beat her to death after she became a Christian, but community leaders intervened and limited him to disowning her, sources said. Kibida Muyemba learned that his 21-year-old daughter, Namusisi Birye, had put her faith in Christ at an evangelistic campaign held that day in Nandere village, Kadama Sub-County, Kibuku District, 41 kilometers (25 miles) west of Mbale, church leaders told Morning Star News. Birye and a man in the traditional dress of an imam confessed openly to receiving Christ, they said, and angry Muslims cut the event short. On Oct. 19, 2015, Muslims in Kalampete village, Kibuku District who were angry at a Christian for leaving Islam killed his wife, a month after his brother was killed for the same reason. Mamwikomba Mwanika, mother of three adult children and five others ranging in age from 17 to 9, died en route to a hospital after Muslims unknown to her dragged her from her home at about 9 p.m. and assaulted her, survivors said. Her husband’s brother, Samson Nfunyeku, was killed in the village on Sept. 23 after flaring tempers cut short a religious debate he’d had with Islamic scholars. In Nsinze village, Namutumba District, a Muslim beat and left for dead his wife and 18-year-old son on Aug. 11 after learning they had converted to Christianity, area sources said. Issa Kasoono beat and strangled his wife, Jafalan Kadondi, but she survived, said a source who requested anonymity. He said other relatives joined Kasoono in beating her and their two sons, Ibrahim Kasoono, 18, and Ismael Feruza, 16, though the younger son managed to escape with only bruises on his arm. The wife of a former sheikh was poisoned to death on June 17, 2015 after she and her husband put their faith in Christ in Nabuli village, Kibuku District. Namumbeiza Swabura was the mother of 11 children, including a 5-month-old baby. In Kiryolo, Kaderuna Sub-County, Budaka District on March 28, 2015, five Muslims gang-raped the 17-year-old daughter of a pastor because the church leader ignored their warnings that he stop worship services, she said.

Lebanese Christian women armed with machine guns patrol their border village after jihadis launch suicide attacks

ISIS is suspected of launching nine attacks including eight suicide bombs on the Lebanese border town of Qaa

The area has a strong Christian population and members were attacked as they went to a church service yesterday

Lebanese special forces rounded up 103 suspected illegal migrants from Syria in a security sweep earlier today

The Lebanese government accused ISIS of being behind the deadly attacks on Qaa which killed five pepole

Lebanese Christian women have launched armed patrols carry machine guns after their village was attacked by a jihadi suicide bombers. The women from the Christian village Qaa, which is a few hundred metres from Syria, was attacked by several suicide bombers on Monday. The attacks have prompted the government to round up 103 Syrian migrants who are accused of sneaking into the country illegally. Lebanese troops have detained a 103 Syrians accused of entering the country illegally following a string of suicide attacks along the border. Lebanon shares a 250-mile land border with Syria to the north and the east. The strikes on Qaa killed five people, with suicide bombers even attacking ambulances ferrying victims from earlier attacks. A government statement said: 'The attack on the Lebanese national security and the unfamiliar manner in which it was executed usher in a new kind of phase in the state's confrontation with the dark forces of terrorism.' The bombings triggered fear and panic among Qaa's residents and a deepening sense of foreboding in Lebanon, which has grappled for over five years with spillovers from Syria's civil war. Tuesday was declared a national day of mourning and authorities postponed funerals for the five killed in Monday's bombings, citing security reasons. A major religious event scheduled in the capital, Beirut, by the militant Hezbollah group was also postponed. Also citing security concerns, the ministry of culture postponed the opening of the Bacchus Temple, part of the famed ruins of Baalbek. A troupe of Syrian actors roaming the Bekaa Valley with a performance about refugee woes postponed its tour. A limited curfew was imposed in Qaa and the surrounding area. The army said it carried out security raids in six areas in the Baalbek region, which has many informal Syrian refugee settlements. It said nine motorcycles and two vehicles were confiscated and two Lebanese were arrested with illegal weapons. Monday's explosions, four in the early morning and five at night, also wounded nearly 30 in Qaa. Later in the day, two bombers blew themselves up outside the village church as people gathered for funerals of those killed earlier Monday. The army said one of the suicide bombers detonated his explosives as he was chased by troops, while the other blew himself up near a military post when guards fired at him. No one was killed but the two blasts wounded 13 people. Minister of Interior Nouhad Machnouk said initial investigations indicate most of the bombers were from inside Syria and not refugees. He didn't elaborate. Private Lebanese OTV aired what it said was footage from security cameras in Qaa, purporting to show a young man involved in the attack. The footage shows the young man with a backpack heading to a gathering outside the church, apparently to blow himself up. Qaa and the nearby Ras Baalbek are the only two villages with a Christian majority in the predominantly Shiite Hermel region, where the Shiite Hezbollah group holds sway. The group has sent thousands of its fighters to Syria to bolster President Bashar Assad's forces against the predominantly Sunni rebels trying to topple him. Hezbollah's Al-Manar TV blamed Monday's attack on ISIS, Al-Mustaqbal daily, which is owned by Hezbollah's rival group, suggested the army was the target of the attack. No group has claimed responsibility for the bombings. Sunni extremists have carried out several attacks in the border area since Syria's conflict began in March 2011, leading the Christians of Qaa to set up self-defense units for their village. Officials believe ISIS was responsible for the attacks, but there has not been a claim of responsibility. Interior Minister Nohad Machnouk, speaking from Qaa, said most of the attackers had come from inside Syria, and not refugee camps hosting Syrian refugees who number more than 1 million in Lebanon according to the U.N. refugee agency UNHCR. Local authorities imposed curfews on Syrian refugees in the area following the attacks. The Lebanese army said it had mounted dawn raids on Syrian refugee camps, detaining 103 people for being illegally present in the country. The majority of Syrian refugees have no legal status in Lebanon due to the complications and costs of obtaining or renewing residency rights under rules imposed by the Lebanese government, aid agencies say. In Qaa, residents armed with assault rifles fanned out in the streets for several hours on Tuesday, citing the need to protect the area. They later dispersed when the army asked them to go home. The head of the Qaa local council had on Monday night urged residents to shoot anyone suspicious. Security sources said Hezbollah deployed dozens of armed men in nearby villages to help secure the area. 'We are not leaving for sure, we are staying here ... we are not afraid. We are not leaving our land,' Maher Rizk, a cafe owner, said.

Increased volcanic activity in the last 24 hours: Popocatepetl volcano, Colima volcano and Santamaria volcano explosions By Strange Sounds - Jun 29, 2016

Within the last 24 hours, increased volcanic activity has been reported in Mexico and Guatemala.

The Popocatepetl volcano, the Colima volcano and the Santa Maria volcano have explosed almost simultaneously. Colima explosion on June 28, 2016 As shown by the following video from WebCamsdeMexico, the Colima volcano erupted strongly on June 28, 2016 at 7:31 am: In the last 24 hours, 3 explosions (at 8:50, 09:24 and 09:36), 4 volcano tectonic earthquakes (M1.5, M1.6, M1.8 and M1.8), 202 long period earthquakes, and 42 minutes of low amplitude harmonic tremor have been captured. During the night, glow sources within the crater were observed and the volcano expels continuously a steam and gas emission moving towards northeast. CENAPRED emphasizes that people SHOULD NOT go near the volcano, especially near the crater, due to the hazard caused by ballistic fragments. Explosion of Santa Maria volcano on June 27, 2016 The volcano threw ash and gas column to a height of 5000 meters on June 27, 2016. Here some nice pictures: Do you see the elephant in the next picture? And now a dinosaur! Awesome! As shown in the next video, lahars have also been filmed going down the slope of the Santiaguito volcano on June 24, 2016: Could the Popocatepetl volcanic explosion be linked to the M5.7 earthquake that struck southern Mexico on June 27, 2016? A strong earthquake struck in southern Mexico on Monday afternoon, which was felt in five states. Tall buildings swayed in Mexico City 215 miles (350 kilometers) from the quake’s epicenter. No injured or significant damage have been reported. One day after, the Popocatepetl volcano exploded three times. The volcano is situated in the area were tremors have been felt and thus the eruption could have been triggered by the strong quake. However, it is still unknown if earthquakes can produce volcano eruptions. Scientists are still debating the topic.

Jan Crouch Is Remembered as a Broadcasting Genius Who Leaves a Great Legacy

9:00AM EDT 6/1/2016 Steve Strang

When I learned Jan Crouch had a massive stroke last week, memories came flooding back to me. When I learned she passed away Tuesday, I decided to share my thoughts as my way of paying tribute to a great woman. I had known Jan and her husband, Paul, since the mid-1980s, only about 10 years after the Trinity Broadcast Network (TBN) began. It was already large then, but who would have guessed how it would grow to dominate and define Christian TV as it has? I got to know the Crouches when I was a guest several times on their flagship program, Praise the Lord. I observed that Paul was the builder and consummate negotiator and businessman. No detail of their huge operation escaped his scrutiny. I could also see Jan was the programmer and the decorator. The elaborate sets with the columns, gold leaf and French provincial look were her doing. Even though many thought the sets were overdone, I thought they were beautiful. But that was Jan. She was beautiful—even if overdone—with her makeup, pink wigs and elaborate outfits. At the same time, she was a spiritual woman. She loved the Bible and would read long passages on the air. She had a heart for the lost, and leading people to Christ was always a part of what TBN did. Several years ago, I talked to an elderly, retired Assemblies of God missionary who knew Jan in the 1950s when Jan was a teenager at her father's church in Columbus, Georgia. Our obituary of Jan tells of her roots in the Assemblies of God. This missionary and her husband would occasionally preach for Jan's father. She said she remembers Jan being full of life and playfulness. Even back then, she would use food coloring to dye a streak of some odd color in her hair. Yet after the service Jan would be the first to the altar, seeking God's will for her life. That anecdote to me was a foreshadowing of the personality Jan developed—a bit outlandish by the standards of many but a deeply spiritual woman. Over the years, Charisma covered the Crouches. I even wrote a few of the stories. Once, we wanted to shoot a cover picture while Paul and Jan were in Orlando shooting a special Praise the Lord show at a large church. Jan didn't want to be in the photo because she didn't like what she was wearing. I tried to persuade her, assuring her she looked fine—besides, she was going to appear on national TV soon wearing that same outfit. But she said print photos were permanent and that picture would be around a long time. I found that an interesting perspective from someone who almost lived in front of a TV camera. My articles told of the great struggles they had at the start and how TBN almost didn't make it. In the early days, TBN was considered smaller than Pat Robertson's Christian Broadcast Network (CBN) or Jim Bakker's PTL (which was "borrowed" from the Crouch's Praise the Lord). When Pat Robertson ran for president in 1988, CBN morphed into the Family Channel, and when scandal brought down PTL, TBN became No. 1 and has continued to explode, as some of our articles have documented. Jan was undoubtedly a genius who put together the lineup of programs people wanted to see. She was the one who suggested Charisma do a big special in 1990 for our 15th anniversary. More than 5,000 people attended a live taping at Calvary Assembly in Orlando. We had a few commercials in which we sold subscriptions, and we ultimately sold more than enough to pay for it. I was elated. For us, it was a huge risk, but it paid off. When I started Charisma, I never thought we might expand into television. Not long after that, Jan suggested I host an interview program called The Other Side of the Story. We shot a pilot with Tammy Faye Bakker telling her side of the PTL scandal. It was a great interview, but I was out of my element and afraid we'd run out of people who had been pilloried in the press and needed this outlet to tell their side of the story. Jan must have felt the same way, as we mutually agreed not to continue beyond the pilot. A couple of years later, we tried again with a 30-minute, journalistic, magazine-format TV program called Charisma Now. Over three years, we shot 100 episodes, many of them on-location by going to the offices of people like Bishop T.D. Jakes or Dr. Reginald Cherry. I hired a young freelancer named Matt Crouch (Paul and Jan's youngest son), who was then making a name for himself shooting TV programs like ours and who was beginning to shoot movies like Megiddo: The Omega Code 2 and later One Night With the King, starring Omar Sharif and Tiffany Dupont. We also went together to Toronto to cover the "Toronto Blessing" and to Pensacola, Florida, to cover the Brownsville revival. Once, while shooting in Dallas, Matt took me for a tour of TBN's impressive facilities and told me the stories behind how decisions were made to invest in various facilities. It was fascinating, off-the-record stuff I could never write about. During that time, I flew with Paul and Matt to El Salvador and did a documentary on their Enlace network in Latin America. Other times Matt came to Orlando to visit our facility. I told him we let startup churches use our large meeting room on Sunday. That inspired him to do the same at his facilities in the Hollywood area. One of my most memorable experiences was on New Year's Eve in 1997, when I had dinner with the Crouches at Universal Studios in Los Angeles. I was there on business and asked Matt and Laurie if they wanted to have dinner. They were having dinner with Paul and Jan and invited me along. It was a pleasant and rather normal family gathering as I recall. Later that night, I went to a "watchnight service" with Matt and Laurie and met Dyan Cannon, the movie actress who had accepted Christ. In that era, Matt and I became close friends. Now, since he's taken over the helm of TBN, I mainly see him only at the National Religious Broadcasters convention. That's also where I see his brother, Paul Jr., whom I admire and also consider a friend. There's more I could say. I had frustrations doing a program for three years with TBN. As an entrepreneur, I was used to calling the shots. Anyone who works with TBN knows they have "rules." While our show was always in their top 10 shows, we always lost money. We don't take donations like most Christian broadcasters, so we didn't have a good way to monetize our expenses. I finally concluded television was not for us, and we went our separate ways. But I've kept in touch and respect what the Crouches have accomplished. In 2007, TBN bought the Holy Land Experience in my hometown of Orlando. A couple years after the Holy Land Experience purchase, Jan sent word she wanted to give complementary tickets to my entire staff. So one weekend we had a staff outing at the Holy Land Experience. Of course, I've been there many times. It's spectacular. And you can see Jan's touch everywhere you look. (After she turned over the reins of TBN to Matt, Jan focused more on the Holy Land Experience.) In a town that caters to tourists, TBN is representing the Gospel in a world-class way. If you haven't visited it, you must. In early May, I talked about this with TBN UK's Leon Schoeman, who was interviewing me in London. I told him I hadn't seen Jan in a while and wanted to reach out to her. Little did I know she would be dead from a massive stroke just a few weeks later. I regret I didn't get to tell Jan how much I respect her legacy and admire her genius (even if I didn't understand everything she did). Jan Crouch left a mark on Christian television that will long be remembered. Hundreds of thousands of viewers will miss her as well as family and friends like me who knew her.

‘Like Cologne’: At Least 18 ‘Very Young Women’ Sexually Assaulted At Music Festival

by Oliver JJ Lane1 Jun 2016

As many as 26 young women may have been sexually abused at a festival in Germany, with the attackers employing pack tactics to surround and isolate girls before launching their assaults. The method of attack, which separates women from their friends and leaves them vulnerable to sex attacks and theft, has led German newspaper Die Welt to liken the attacks to the mass sexual assaults outside Cologne central station on New Year’s Eve. As of Tuesday morning, there were 18 official complaints made to police about attacks at the annual Schlossgrabenfest music festival in Darmstadt, Germany. That number had risen to 26 victims by Tuesday afternoon, with police still speaking to witnesses and complainants, who have been described as “very young”. Some were so young, their parents reported the crimes to police, rather than the victims themselves. Police have not ruled out the possibility that more may come forward, according to reports. According to a police press statement, three suspects were arrested at the festival after the girls they allegedly attacked went directly to police to complain. The men, who were arrested and released pending further investigations, are Pakistani “asylum seekers” aged between 28 and 31 years old. A police spokesman said: “The perpetrators proceeded in small groups to surround and touch women immorally. The women said they had the impression the men were of the South Asian region. “On Saturday on a completely packed dance floor in the area of HR Disco, [there was] sexual harassment of several women.” The men were said to move in groups of ten. Hans-Jürgen Irmer, member of parliament for pro-mass migration German leader Angela Merkel’s own Christian Democrat party was horrified at the news of the attacks, reports Junge Freiheit. He told the weekly conservative newspaper that the behaviour of immigrants in this case was “totally unacceptable”, and that if found guilty those men responsible had “forefeited his right to hospitability” from European peoples. If convicted, he said the men should find themselves on the “first plane back to Pakistan”. The Cologne sex attacks to which these latest alleged migrant crimes have been likened were an important factor in bringing to prominence in Germany the scale of criminality in the wake of the migrant crisis. Breitbart London reported on the Cologne attacks in January as German police came to acknowledge the enormous scale of offending which, far from their original claims of having been a quiet and well policed night, actually saw a severely overstretched force unable to prevent over 1,000 alleged incidents of theft, assault, and sexual abuse.

A gorilla, a boy, and God's created order

Wednesday, June 1, 2016 Bryan Fischer - Guest Columnist

The dominion that God has given to man over animals certainly means that it is altogether right and proper to dispatch a member of the animal kingdom the moment it poses a threat to human life. The nation has been mesmerized and polarized by the story of the young boy who fell into the gorilla enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo, an incident which resulted in the shooting death of the gorilla. How should clear thinking Americans process this event – and should they come down on the side of the gorilla or the zoo? The United States was formed as a Christian nation, built on the truth claims of the Judeo-Christian tradition and the laws of nature and nature's God. The only way to see this circumstance clearly is to view it through the lens of Scripture. The Bible is quite clear that both man and animals have been created by God. Neither men nor animals are evolved beings. The Founders understood this clearly, and grounded our nation's entire political experiment on the truth that man is a created being who has been endowed by his Creator – "Creator" with a capital C – with certain unalienable rights. This has enormous significance for how we view this event, because if evolutionists are right (they aren't) then all life is on a continuum in which one life form gradually shades into the next and higher life form. For the Darwinian, the difference between a higher-order primate – say, a gorilla – and a child is merely a matter of degree, a matter of small percentages. We've all heard the stories about how we share 99% of DNA patterns with more complex members of the animal kingdom. But if there is a Creator, the creator of both man and animal, then what he says about what he has made determines how we look at things. What we find in Scripture is the clear declaration that man and man only is made in the image of God. Animals are not. While animals have a soul, only man has a spirit. Only man is capable of entering into a relationship with God; only man is capable of rational thought, communication, and moral choice; and only man lives forever. As Genesis 1 puts it (emphasis mine): "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness ... So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him" (Genesis 1:26,27). In other words, the difference between man and animal is not one of degree but of kind. They belong to entirely different orders of being altogether. The life of a human being is of infinite worth, while the life of an animal is not. There is an unbridgeable chasm in worth, value, and significance between even the smallest human being and the most majestic animal. In God's created economy, man is given dominion over every living thing. "Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth" (Genesis 1:26). The dominion that God has given to man over animals means that zoos are morally permissible, despite the bleatings of animal rights activists, for they give people an opportunity to observe the beauty, majesty, and complexity of God's creatures. And the dominion that God has given to man over animals certainly means that it is altogether right and proper to dispatch a member of the animal kingdom the moment it poses a threat to human life. Some claim they know for certain how gorillas think and insist that the animal had nothing but tenderness in mind for the child. But there are any number of instances where zoo gorillas have attacked human beings, including one incident in which a gorilla gnawed on the face and chest of a child before being taken down by a SWAT team. It would have been inhumane to gamble a child's life on the supposed ability of a human to read a gorilla's mind. Tranquilizing the gorilla was likewise out of the question. It would have taken several minutes for the tranquilizer to take effect, and the jolt of the dart may have agitated the gorilla and dramatically increased the danger to the child. While secular fundamentalists continue to elevate animal life to the point where it takes precedence over human life – witness the vigils for Harambe and the death threats directed against the parents of the child – God never makes that mistake. Thus, from a biblical perspective, the choice between gorilla and child may have been painful; but it was not, and should not have been, tough. No one ever takes delight in the death of a majestic animal, but there is simply no comparison between the death of an animal and the death of a child. The outpouring of anger and outrage directed at zoo officials and at this boy's parents is beneath the dignity of a Christian nation. The predominant national emotional reaction should be relief and gratitude that a young boy's life was spared, and happiness for his parents. The fact that the national mood is something much different is sobering and telling.

Gunmen storm Mogadishu hotel; 13 killed

Al-Shabaab suspected UPDATED 8:07 PM EDT Jun 01, 2016

MOGADISHU, Somalia (CNN) —Suspected Al-Shabaab gunmen set off an explosion and stormed a popular hotel in Somalia's capital Wednesday, killing at least 13 people and three attackers, a security official said. A lengthy siege at Mogadishu's Ambassador Hotel ended early Thursday, said Somali security official Ahmed Barre. One militant died in an initial car bomb attack, according to the National Intelligence and Security Agency. Barre said the other two were killed by Somali special forces. At least 40 other people were injured in the attack, according to Capt. Da'ud Hajji, a senior Somali police officer. Two Somali lawmakers are among the dead, the Somali National News Agency reported. The siege began when attackers detonated a car packed with explosives at the gates of the building, Hajji said. The explosion shook nearby offices and injured bystanders in front of the hotel, witnesses said. Victims flooded a nearby hospital. "Almost every 10 minutes they brought new people and bodies in," said Bashir Ali Mohamed, who was at the hospital visiting family members injured in the blast. "I have never seen such a horrible thing. Blood is everywhere." Lawmakers killed More than two hours after the attack began, Mohamed said he could still hear gunshots and ambulances. He felt the blast from his office a kilometer away, posting a photo on Twitter showing smoke rising in the distance. Details are still emerging about the victims of the attack. Two members of Parliament, Mohamed Mohamud Gurre and Abdullahi Jama, were among them, the Somali news agency said. The two lawmakers were close friends, a top Somali official said. "Rarely saw them apart," Planning and International Cooperation Minister Abdi Aynte posted on Twitter. "Their bond was inseparable & they martyred together. RIP." The Ambassador Hotel is a popular spot for Somali politicians and Westerners. Authorities rescued 10 people and cleared out three of the hotel's four floors, according to the security agency. At least three of the people rescued were members of Somalia's Parliament, said Aden Osman, a hotel employee who also escaped the attack. Al-Shabaab has used tactic before Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility soon after the attack. Citing an unnamed commander, a statement on a website linked to Al-Shabaab said one of the group's jihadist fighters detonated a car with explosives at the gate, allowing armed militants to enter the building. It's a tactic Al-Shabaab has used before, such as an attack at another hotel in the Somali capital last year that left 15 people dead. The militants aim to turn Somalia into a fundamentalist Islamic state. The group has been blamed for attacks in Somalia that have killed international aid workers, journalists, civilian leaders and African Union peacekeepers.

Teenager burned alive for refusing marriage proposal in Pakistan

Principal of school where she worked attacked her for spurning his son’s hand

Islamabad: A young Pakistani woman died on Wednesday after she was tortured and set alight in the country’s conservative northeast for refusing a marriage proposal from the son of a former colleague, relatives and police said. Maria Sadaqat, 19, was attacked by a group of people on Monday in the village of Upper Dewal, close to the summer hill resort of Murree, outside the capital, Islamabad. “She was badly tortured and then burned alive. We brought her to hospital in Islamabad but she succumbed to her wounds today,” Abdul Basit, Sadaqat’s uncle, told AFP outside a burns centre at Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences in the capital. Grieving relatives outside the centre wept and protested at the teenager’s death as police moved her body to another hospital for a post-mortem. Basit said his niece had been attacked by the principal of the private school where she had formerly worked as a teacher, and by his accomplices after she refused a marriage proposal from his son. “He was divorced and twice her age, so she refused the proposal and left her job when they pursued her time and again ... eventually, they attacked her,” Basit said. Police said Sadaqat gave a statement before her death naming the principal and four others as her attackers. “We have arrested at least one of the accused and a hunt is on for the rest,” Mazhar Iqbal, the officer directing the murder investigation, said. A doctor at the hospital said Sadaqat had succumbed to serious burns. “The poor woman was becoming better but then could not survive because most parts of her body had serious burn injuries,” said Ayesha Ihsani. It was the second time in just over a month that a Pakistani woman had been murdered over a marriage issue. A woman believed to be aged between 16-18 was drugged, strangled and her body burnt on the orders of a village jirga (council) in northwest Pakistan on April 29, allegedly for helping a friend to elope with her lover. Hundreds of women are murdered by their relatives in Pakistan each year on the pretext of defending what is seen as family honour.

Report: Accused Somali war criminal works at Dulles Airport

By WJLA Thursday, June 2nd 2016

WASHINGTON (WJLA) - A man accused of war crimes in Somalia who now works as a security guard at Dulles International Airport has been placed on administrative leave, CNN reports. According to a CNN investigation, Yusuf Abdi Ali has been living in the D.C. area for about 20 years and currently resides in Alexandria, Virginia. The report says he is accused of "committing atrocities while he was a military commander during Somalia's brutal civil war." "He oversaw some of the most incredible violence that you can imagine," Kathy Roberts, an attorney for the Center for Justice and Accountability, which is leading a civil suit against Ali, told CNN. "He tortured people personally; he oversaw torture." More than 1,000 accused war criminals live and work in the United States, according to CNN.

'The Next 5 Months Are Going To Shock The World' - CEO Hints At Massive Shortages As 'Spirit Of Violence And Unrest' Rises In America - We Are Watching 'End Times' Prophecy Unfolding

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die While most Americans living within our country right now under capitalism can walk into almost any grocery store across the country and lay down a few bucks to pick up a dozen eggs, this new story from the Los Angeles Times tells us that to do the same thing in Venezuela, you'll need to fork over up to $150 or more for the same dozen eggs. Those living in Venezuela might want to read this recent story from BioPrepper called "Ingenious Foods People Made During Famines" as their society breaks down and goes through total collapse, a loud and clear warning to America. The 'fruits of socialism' are on full display in Venezuela as also seen in the 1st video below, a stunning video from a Venezuelan supermarket that shows rows and rows of empty shelves and should be seen as a dire warning of what could very easily be happening here...and not too far ahead we're beginning to learn from so-called 'experts'. In the 2nd video below, A Watchman of the Sword shows us why we may be watching long-warned prophecy now unfolding in Venezuela and the world with famine now striking and nation rising against nation. As we see in the chart below from the LATimes story, there are huge differences between what food products cost in Venezuela as recently as last December and now, and the black market/street vendor prices are even more extreme. We've reported that hungry Venezuelans are killing birds and animals such as cats and dogs in the streets to eat; this chart clearly shows us why that is an option that many are being required to take as famine awaits. Much more below including a warning from one CEO of 'shortages ahead' as well as more signs America is 'falling apart at the seams'. The story over at Zero Hedge tells us that former FED Chairman Alan Greenspan, one of those 'experts', is having a 'breakdown of truthiness' once again as he warns us we're running straight towards disaster...ZH also adds this disclaimer: "If only he hadn't gotten us into this mess in the first place." For nearly 2 years, All News Pipeline has been sounding the alarm about what we have seen clearly coming down the road at us. A recent story from Michael Snyder over at the Economic Collapse Blog tells us that a 'spirit of violence and civil unrest is rising in America' as our country begins to come apart at the seams. It was only a matter of time before our deeply divided nation was going to start coming apart at the seams. Waves of anger, frustration, violence and civil unrest are starting to sweep across the United States, and political rallies for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump have become a focal point for releasing some of that energy. The angry mob that threw rocks, bottles and burning T-shirts at police and Donald Trump supporters on Tuesday night wanted to get the attention of the national media, and they got it in droves. Now that the election is less than five months away, this kind of scene is going to be repeated over and over, and this is something that I warned about back in March. Millions upon millions of our young people have fully embraced the radical left, and they have already made it exceedingly clear that they are not afraid to use violence to advance their cause. Never before in my lifetime have I seen America so divided. Our politicians and the mainstream media have been endlessly pitting various groups against one another for years, and wherever you look hearts are growing very cold. I have said it before, and I will say it again. I believe that this is going to be the most chaotic election season that we have ever experienced, and the chaos and violence that are going to be unleashed over the next five months are going to shock the entire world. Over at SHTFPlan, Jeremiah Johnson tells us that Americans should be mourning the death of United States as soon we will either be 'ripe for internal collapse...or a large war'. We're told that the net is now closing in all around us as the 'soft, creeping tyranny' we've been witnessing the past decade+ may soon be turned into a full-fledged totalitarian state with this warning: "All it's going to take is one spark" to turn America into something Adolf Hitler would have been proud of. Over at SHTFPlan we also learn that one outspoken CEO is hinting at massive shortages as he warns that some manufacturing companies have no choice but to go directly to the mining companies to acquire precious metals for their high end products. The latest SQAlert from a 'banking insider' seen below videos offers us another look at what we've been watching unfolding across this country as we're told that 'things are much worse than anyone realized'. While even some preppers (who shall remain unnamed) have recently made statements such as 'there is only so much prepping that one can do' and have lamented over ANP and others continually emphasizing the coming collapse, we'll warn here of the dangers of 'prepper complacency' and why we feel absolute called upon to continuing sounding the alarm as long as we are still able to: there are still many Americans and people throughout the world who have not 'awoken' to the coming dangers.: But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand. FROM BANKING INSIDER:'things are much worse than anyone realized' --'If you have an IRA, 401K look for a 40% - 80% cut (depending on the financial stability institution who holds it Steve, Just more confirmation. Talked to my banking contact. He/she was called back in from vacation, no chance of vacation anytime soon. "things are much worse than anyone realized" "If you have an IRA, 401K look for a 40% - 80% cut (depending on the financial stability institution who holds it)" My thought- They are planning how to cut out the good meat on the dead and rotting corpse of the American economy and who gets what. And the who will not be you and me. "things are in a panic mode", "I would not be surprised if we did not make it to the end of the year" I would not be surprised if we didn't make it to the end of the summer" When he responded to what Greenspan said about us looking like Grease and Cypress not Venezuela, he disagreed it will be like Venezuela. Just more up to the minute confirmation, as you have said this is not years away but months. The final preparations for these plans are being put into place now!

A winged baby, semi-naked dancers and a man with a bird's nest on his head: How Switzerland decided to mark opening of world's longest rail tunnel

The new £8.5bn Gotthard Base Tunnel was launched today with spectacular opening ceremony featuring 600 people

Orchestrated by German director Volker Hesse, performance included several bizarre outfits and re-enactments

Winged baby with an oversized head and dance troupe in their underwear moved to the sound of Alpine horns

The tunnel through the Swiss Alps was first conceived in sketch-form in 1947 but construction began 17 years ago

Journey time between Zurich and Milan will be cut by an hour thanks to trains hurtling along at up to 155mph

By Euan McLelland and Julian Robinson for MailOnline Published: 14:24 EST, 1 June 2016 | Updated: 02:12 EST, 2 June 2016

The Swiss have put on one of the most bizarre opening ceremonies in history to mark the completion of the world's longest tunnel. Famed for their trains, organisers roped in more than 600 dancers, acrobats and dramatic actors and even composed the new route's very own theme tune as they pulled out all the stops for Wednesday's inauguration at the tunnel's northern portal in Erstfeld. Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, President Francois Hollande of France and Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi all came to southern Switzerland for an upbeat, glitzy celebration featuring musical bands and dancers. Under purple neon lights, performers dressed in orange miners' suits and protective helmets danced atop a moving rail car to the rhythm of pick-axes and construction machinery. Trapeze artists hung from chains or ropes, a band blared out a thumping military march and helicopters buzzed overhead as the celebration strived to both thrill and offer a show of European solidarity. It also featured a baby with feathered white wings and oversized head and a man dancing with a bird's nest on his head. Music was provided by Alpine horn players, an army band and live choirs A dance troupe also performed in just their underwear before fireworks were sent blasting into the sky outside the venue. The out-there event was in honour of the world's longest rail tunnel, running for 35 miles under the Swiss Alps, and was put together by German director Volker Hesse. According to commentators, the performance explored the myths of the massif, the modernity of the book and the North-South reconciliation were its central themes. The tunnel has come in under its £8.5billion and its creation will mean a million fewer trucks on the roads. High-speed trains will whisk passengers and cargo in 17 minutes through a mountain range that divides northern and southern Europe between Erstfeld in the Swiss canton of Uri, to Bodio in the Ticino canton. As the first train used the tunnel today, experts described the completion of the 17-year construction project as a 'masterpiece of timing, cost and policy'. Fittingly, the first ones to travel the tunnel at the official opening will be 500 lucky winners plus guests from the 130,000 who entered a ticket lottery for the inaugural trip. Swiss forces took no chances with security for this afternoon's funky inauguration. Almost 2,000 additional Swiss troops were called, helicopters buzzed overhead and air space restrictions were put over the tunnel area. When it officially opens, the Gotthard will surpass Japan's 33.4-mile Seikan tunnel as the world's longest train tunnel. The 31.4-mile Channel Tunnel that links England and France will be bumped into third place. The tunnel along Europe's main rail line that connects the ports of Rotterdam in the north to Genoa in the south snakes through the mountains as much as 1.5 miles below daylight and through rock as hot as 46 degrees Celsius (114.8°F). Engineers had to dig and blast through 73 kinds of rock as hard as granite and as soft as sugar in creating it - a process that lead to the deaths of nine construction workers. According to the Swiss rail service, it took 43,800 hours of non-stop work by 125 labourers rotating in three shifts to lay the tunnel's slab track.

ISIS jihadis ARE driven by Islam and the world needs to accept that no matter how 'uncomfortable' the facts, says the Muslim man in charge of BBC Religion

Aaqil Ahmed defended BBC decision to refer to 'so-called Islamic State'

Told discussion it is untrue that 'ISIS has nothing to do with Islam'

Says although 'uncomfortable' members of the group 'are Muslims'

Critics including Prime Minister have called on BBC to stop using 'Islamic State' when referring to the terror group

See more Islamic State news updates at www.dailymail.co.uk/isis 

By Lucy Crossley for MailOnline Published: 03:36 EST, 2 June 2016 | Updated: 05:59 EST, 2 June 2016

The BBC's head of religion has said although it is 'uncomfortable' to accept, the ideology behind ISIS is based on Islamic doctrine. Aaqil Ahmed, the first Muslim to hold the post, said it was untrue to suggest that ISIS had nothing to do with Islam, despite the fact that the majority of Muslims do not agree with the extremist group. He was speaking at an event at Huddersfield University, when he was asked to explain the BBC's controversial policy on referring to the group as 'so-called Islamic State'. Prime Minister David Cameron has been among those who have called for the corporation not to use the phrase when referring to the terror group operating in Iraq and Syria, saying Muslims would 'recoil' at the phrase being used to justify the 'perversion of a great religion'. Mr Ahmed was asked at the event organised by Lapido, the centre for religious literacy in journalism, to defend the term by barrister Neil Addison on the grounds that he wouldn't have said 'so-called Huddersfield University'. According to a report by Lapido, he responded by saying: 'I hear so many people say ISIS has nothing to do with Islam – of course it has. 'They are not preaching Judaism. It might be wrong but what they are saying is an ideology based on some form of Islamic doctrine. They are Muslims. 'That is a fact and we have to get our head around some very uncomfortable things. That is where the difficulty comes in for many journalists because the vast majority of Muslims won't agree with them [ISIS].' Clarifying his comments, he told The Times that he had not been referring explicitly to the name of the group, but that 'it [was] a reflection of the complexity of how you describe them and the religious belief structure.' The extremists are variously known as Islamic State, Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and Daesh, based the Arabic acronym for the group, which the terrorists consider to be offensive because it sounds similar to the word 'Dahes' meaning 'one who sows discord'. Critics have warned that referring to 'Islamic State' legitimises the group's attempt to carve out parts of Iraq and Syria. The BBC has used its preferred term to describe ISIS since 2014, when the group shortened its name from Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant to Islamic State. However, the broadcaster qualifies the phrase by adding 'so-called' or 'self-styled', a reference to the extremists' claims of statehood rather than religious affiliation. Last summer, Mr Cameron asked the BBC to drop the term, and criticised BBC presenter John Humphrys for referring to the group as Islamic State. During an interview on BBC Radio 4's Today programme Mr Cameron referred to the group as 'ISIL'. 'I wish the BBC would stop calling it Islamic State because it's not an Islamic State; what it is is an appalling, barbarous regime,' Mr Cameron said. 'It is a perversion of the religion of Islam and many Muslims listening to this programme will recoil every time they hear the words "Islamic State". 'So-called' or Isil is better,' he added. His request was backed by 120 MPs, including Boris Johnson, Keith Vaz and Alex Salmond, who wrote to Director General Lord Hall calling for the broadcaster to refer to the group as Daesh instead. However, Lord Hall rejected the demand, saying to use Daesh would 'bias their coverage', risked giving the 'impression of support' for the group's opponents and 'would not preserve the BBC's impartiality'. Former Channel 4 commissioning editor for religion and head of multicultural programming, Mr Ahmed was appointed as the BBC's head of religion and ethics in 2009, in what was seen as a radical departure from broadcasting tradition. He began his broadcasting career at the BBC, primarily working for BBC Birmingham, and had also worked as a director for Here And Now, as well as a producer and director on a number of documentaries and news broadcasts. Prior to his 2009 appointment, the then Archbishop of Canterbury was reported to have raised concerns over the prospect of a Muslim head of religious broadcasting, amid fears the BBC was reducing its religious output. Previously, the post had been considered a job for a senior and respected cleric or lay churchgoer. Last month, a report compiled by Mr Ahmed suggested that the BBC was too Christian in its output, and should consider scrapping some of its long-running programmes in favour of shows for Muslim, Hindu and Sikh audiences. The report was created in consultation with non-Christians who expressed their belief that the BBC is disproportionate in its religious content, and that while there are plenty of shows that celebrate Christianity, there are too few for other faiths. The recent white paper on the BBC's future ordered the broadcaster to offer more for ethnic minorities. As it stands, religious programming across the BBC includes the likes of Songs of Praise, Sunday Morning Live and The Life of Muhammad on television. Moral Maze, Beyond Belief and Thought for the Day feature on radio. Muslim critics have suggested that the BBC could televise Friday prayers, cover Eid or show children attending madrasahs to boost their Islamic serving.

May was a bloody month in Chicago — 66 dead and nearly 400 shot

By Alexandra Chachkevitch and Rosemary Regina Sobol 6-1-16

The gray sedan was parked in the ambulance bay of the hospital, its doors open and bullet holes just above and below the driver's side window. Minutes earlier, 15-year-old Fabien Lavinder was in the car when someone stepped from an alley and shot him in the chest, police said. The driver took the boy to the hospital, where he died shortly before 11 p.m. Tuesday. Fabien was the 66th and final homicide last month, the deadliest May in Chicago since 1995, when 75 homicides were recorded, according to police records. He was among nearly 400 people shot last month. The month's toll was fueled by a Memorial Day weekend in which six people were killed and 63 wounded, and a Mother's Day weekend when more than 50 people were shot, eight fatally. That brought the total number of people shot in Chicago so far this year to more than 1,500. At least 250 of them have died. In 1995, there had been 320 homicides at this time, police data show. Chicago police say the violence has been stoked by gang conflicts and a proliferation of guns, mixed with weak gun law enforcement. The department has blamed most of the violence on a core group of about 1,400 people, whom they have used data analytics to pinpoint. Police provided no motive for Fabien's shooting. His family said it had no idea why anyone would shoot him and that it had seen enough of the street violence. “It really does make me sick. I want to leave Chicago,’’ said Fabien's mother, Ericka Wright, 45. "We are ready to go." The boy's grandmother, Faye Lavinder, added, "I don’t know what this city has come to when you have 66 shootings in the weekend. Sixty-six people shot!” She added, "We can fight disease and cure this and cure that…. Someone needs to cure the land ... the city." Fabien had been out with two friends Tuesday night and they were dropping off one of the friends when the shooting occurred in, the family said. Fabien at first didn't know he had been shot, his family said. As he started bleeding, his friends drove him to the hospital, slapping his face and throwing water on him to keep him awake, the family said. Wright said she was at home sleeping when one of Fabien's eight siblings, a daughter, shook her awake. "Mom, mom, Fabien got shot," she told Wright. Wright jumped into her car and raced to the hospital. "I was praying on the way there that it wasn’t that bad. I couldn’t say goodbye to my baby," she said. Police wrapped yellow crime tape around the car after Fabien was taken into the hospital. More than a dozen relatives and friends stood near the emergency entrance. They hugged and cried. A man in a black T-shirt and jeans walked back and forth on the sidewalk across from the hospital. He held his head in his hands as he sobbed. “We should have just stayed in the burbs, man,” he said to no one in particular.

27 Nations Set to Join RIMPAC Exercise in Hawaii, California

Stars and Stripes | Jun 01, 2016 | by Wyatt Olson

Four nations will join this summer's Rim of the Pacific drills in Hawaii, increasing the number of countries participating in the world's largest international maritime exercise to 27. Brazil, Denmark, Germany and Italy will take part for the first time in the biennial RIMPAC, which is slated to begin June 30 and end Aug. 4, the Navy said Tuesday. China, which joined the exercise in 2014, will also participate. This year's U.S. Pacific Fleet-hosted drills -- which will focus on disaster relief, maritime security, sea control and complex warfighting -- will include 45 ships, five submarines, more than 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel. Participating nations include Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Colombia, France, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, South Korea, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Tonga and the United Kingdom. Drills will include amphibious operations, gunnery, counter-piracy, mine clearance, explosive ordnance disposal and diving and salvage operations. Defensive training against missiles, submarines and aircraft will also take place. While most of the exercise is held in Hawaii, amphibious operations will take place in Southern California, featuring a harpoon missile shoot from a Navy littoral combat ship. A submarine rescue is new for this year, the Navy said. Playing a major role in this year's RIMPAC is the Navy's "Great Green Fleet," a yearlong initiative that uses energy conservation measures and alternative fuels to demonstrate how cutting energy costs can contribute to overall military readiness. Almost all the vessels participating will use an approved alternate-fuel blend, the Navy said. Some in Congress have called for China to be disinvited to RIMPAC, citing the country's expansionist actions in the South China Sea, where it has enlarged small atolls through sand dredging. The country has built facilities and runways on some, construction the U.S. characterizes as militarization. Last month, U.S. Rep. Mark Takai, of Hawaii, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, asked Secretary of Defense Ash Carter to reconsider China's invitation in light of its naval actions over the past two years. "I guess my question is why then should we reward China for this aggressive behavior by including them in an event meant for allies and partners?" Takai said to Carter during a March hearing. He described China's behavior as "the polar opposite of U.S. objectives in the region." In late April, China told the U.S. it would deny a Hong Kong port visit by the USS John C. Stennis aircraft carrier strike group planned for May 3-8. The denial likely came in response to the strike group's recent presence near the disputed Spratly Islands close to the Philippines. U.S. Pacific Fleet commander Adm. Scott Swift has said on numerous occasions he believes the path forward with China is to deepen relationships with military-to-military contact. In 2014, China sent four ships to RIMPAC, including the destroyer Haikou and hospital ship Peace Ark. It also sent a spy ship, which remained in international waters off Hawaii.

The New Dark Ages - The New Black Death - The New Doomsday - The New Barbarian Hordes Have Arrived

June 2, 2016 Submitted to All News Pipeline by Dr. Peter Pry - executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security. He served in the Congressional EMP Commission, the Congressional Strategic Posture Commission, the House Armed Services Committee, and the CIA. He is author of "Blackout Wars." Story originally published at the Mackenzie Institute. Historians note that one of the signs of the decline and fall of the Roman Empire was the rise of walled cities. Rome was no longer capable of defending its far flung borders from invading barbarians. So cities had to defend themselves by erecting fortifications, becoming fortresses that are popular tourist attractions today, but that then signified the collapse of Roman civilization and the advent of the Dark Ages. The New Barbarians Now Washington under the leadership of President Barak Obama lacks the political will to defeat or deter the new barbarians that threaten Western Civilization: —Islamist terrorism is raiding Europe and America, pouring hundreds of fighters and thousands of new recruits, mixed with refugees from the Middle East, across the West’s undefended borders. The invasion happens at a time when Western elites suffer from a crisis of confidence in the merits of their own civilization, rejecting Judeo-Christian values and seeking to replace these with a spiritually dead culture of secular humanism and materialism. Islam, not merely a religion but a totalitarian ideology, and its fervent adherents cannot reasonably be expected to assimilate, or even co-exist, with Western secular humanism – the antithesis of Islam. Civilizational suicide by Western elites is well described in George Weigel’s book The Cube and the Cathedral (2005). –North Korea repeatedly threatens nuclear missile strikes. On February 7, 2016 Pyongyang orbited a second satellite over the U.S. on the optimum trajectory to evade National Missile Defenses and make a high-altitude electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack that could blackout the U.S. electric grid and kill millions of Americans, if the satellite is nuclear armed. For the first time in history, EMP and cyber attacks against electric grids makes it possible for failed states like North Korea, and even non-state actors like terrorists, to destroy the most advanced and successful societies on Earth. –Iran may also be capable of making a nuclear EMP attack on the U.S.. Iran is allied to North Korea and has orbited satellites on similar trajectories. President Obama’s Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA–the Iran nuclear deal) is unverifiable, and failed to verify the past and present status of Iran’s nuclear weapons program, as promised to Congress. The UN International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), upon which the Obama Administration depends for inspections and verification of the JCPOA, knows only what Iran permits the IAEA to know. The IAEA has access only to overt nuclear sites declared as such by Iran–not to military facilities or many underground sites that almost certainly conceal a clandestine nuclear weapons program. Iran is probably following the example of North Korea that continued developing nuclear weapons clandestinely, even while agreeing to the Agreed Framework that President Bill Clinton promised would prevent Pyongyang from developing nuclear warheads and long-range missiles. Now North Korea has both. IAEA inspections have never been an effective barrier to nuclear proliferation. —Russia and China are on the march in Europe and Asia, testing the resolve of the U.S. to defend NATO and its Pacific allies, and waging cyber warfare against the U.S. homeland. Russia and China are developing and deploying new generations of advanced nuclear weapons and missiles, while the U.S. nuclear deterrent is so old and obsolete that many question its technical reliability – and most importantly its credibility. Recently, Russia boasted it is developing a new heavy ICBM armed with 10-12 new warheads in MAneuverable Re-entry Vehicles (MARVs) that can snake through any missile defenses and destroy, with a single missile, an area the size of Texas or France. This is probably disinformation, intended to conceal the real purpose of the new MARVed ICBM, which is to achieve cruise missile-type accuracy for a surprise disarming first-strike against the U.S. nuclear deterrent. Russia and China also have a virtual monopoly in battlefield nuclear weapons, which the U.S. has mostly dismantled unilaterally, except perhaps for a few hundred aged gravity bombs stored in Europe. Worst, Russia and China have Super-EMP weapons, that could disarm the U.S. with a single blow – and the U.S. has no counterpart to these weapons (which Russia apparently has proliferated, by accident or intentionally, to North Korea). Escalation dominance in the nuclear balance would enable Russia and China to unleash aggression by their conventional forces, perhaps unopposed. Nuclear superiority would also enable them, if necessary, to win a nuclear war. New barbarians, like the barbarians of old, have little regard for such pacifist dreams as “beating swords into ploughshares” or “a world without nuclear weapons” and respect only strength. The New Black Death While new barbarians threaten Western Civilization, the Sun also threatens a New Dark Ages by the advent of a geomagnetic super-storm, like the 1859 Carrington Event. The Congressional EMP Commission, NASA, and the National Academy of Sciences estimate that if another Carrington Event happens today, natural EMP from the Sun could collapse electric grids and life-sustaining critical infrastructures worldwide, putting at risk the lives of billions. NASA estimates the likelihood of recurrence of another Carrington Event to be 12 percent per decade, which makes a catastrophic natural EMP likely within this generation or the next. The greatest threat to the U.S. and Western civilization is an EMP that blacks-out the electric grid for months or years, thereby collapsing all the life-sustaining critical infrastructures – including communications, transportation, business and manufacturing, food and water. Nuclear EMP attack is the worst threat, because it would cause the deepest damage to electronics and critical infrastructures. But a protracted nation-wide blackout imperiling the existence of civilization can also be caused by natural EMP from a rare geomagnetic super-storm, by non-nuclear EMP from radio frequency weapons, by cyber attack, and even by terrorists armed with small arms attacking key nodes in the electric grid. Military doctrine and exercises of Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran indicate these new barbarians have developed a new way of warfare, a Revolution in Military Affairs that combines cyber, sabotage, and EMP attack against electric grids to quickly defeat the West. Blackout War (2015), as my book terms it, or “Sixth Generation Warfare” as termed by Russian General Vladimir Slipchenko, would be a war without armies, navies or air forces, a war without conventional battlefields or large nuclear operations as conceived during the Cold War. Western Civilization is more vulnerable to Blackout War, and will be more surprised, than were the Roman legions when they first encountered Attilla’s mounted hordes. The Congressional EMP Commission, recently re-established by Congress, warns that a nationwide blackout lasting one year could kill up to 90 percent of the American people by starvation, industrial and environmental catastrophes (like firestorms from natural gas pipelines and radioactive plumes from nuclear reactors), and societal collapse. Thus, natural or manmade EMP, or Blackout War, could be deadlier to Western Civilization than the Black Death or other plagues that depopulated Medieval Europe. Decline of the New Rome The good news is that the EMP Commission proposed a plan in 2008 to protect the national electric grid and the lives of the American people for about $2 billion (or what the U.S. gives away every year in foreign aid to Pakistan.) The bad news is that in the 8 years since the EMP Commission submitted its plan to protect the nation’s electric grid and other critical infrastructures, the federal bureaucracy has done little or nothing. Washington’s failure to protect the American people from EMP and other potentially catastrophic threats to the electric grid is symptomatic of a general decline in federal competence such that the central government now seems incapable of accomplishing anything. For example: –The Defense Department wasted $500 million training an “army” of 50 Syrian rebels, who mostly defected to ISIS. –Health and Human Services wasted millions of dollars on a website for ObamaCare that does not work. –The federal bureaucracy cannot protect itself from cyber attacks from Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran. Once Washington was capable of mobilizing and organizing million-man armies to defeat Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan; of inventing the atomic bomb, nuclear powered submarines, and nuclear electricity; of building a national highway system and sending Man to the Moon. Now, Washington cannot even tell itself the truth. Official lies become self-delusions are symptomatic of a civilization in decline–and perhaps about to fall. Official U.S. Government estimates of unemployment, economic growth, illegal immigration – of almost anything politically important – have become so counterfactual as to be worthy of the former USSR. Consider, for example, a recent U.S. Government Accountability Office report titled Critical Infrastructure Protection: Federal Agencies Have Taken Actions To Address Electromagnetic Risks, But Opportunities Exist To Further Assess Risks And Strengthen Collaboration (March 2016). Contrary to its optimistic sounding title, GAO manages to evade admitting that the U.S. Government has failed to implement the EMP Commission’s recommendations to protect the national electric grid! The bottom line is that the national electric grid is still catastrophically vulnerable to EMP, and little or nothing is being done to correct grid vulnerability. The GAO, to its credit, admitted as much during a congressional hearing on July 22, 2015, in public testimony under questioning by Senator Ron Johnson, Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Accountability Committee. Building Walls Fortunately, some states have noticed federal incompetency, and growing threats to the grid, and are moving to protect themselves. Maine, Virginia, Florida, and Arizona have passed legislation or taken other measures to protect their grids and peoples from the catastrophic consequences of a protracted blackout. Most recently, under the leadership of Texas Governor Gregg Abbott and State Senator Bob Hall, a “Texas Grid Security Summit” convened in Austin (April 28-29). The summit responded to a petition (dated November 2, 2015) from 23 members of the Texas delegation to the U.S. Congress urging Governor Abbott to protect the Texas grid from EMP and other threats. The congressional letter from Washington appealing to Governor Abbot to protect the Texas electric grid reads in part: “We encourage you to take a leading role on an issue of critical importance to our constituents and to our state: the vulnerability of our electric grid and the potential loss of power for millions of American families and businesses…Physical disruptions to the infrastructure, space weather events, cyber-attacks, and electromagnetic pulses (EMPs) are the most significant and pressing threats to our electric grid. It is imperative that we make the grid resilient to all such hazards.” Ironic, and alarming, that the 23 Members of Congress who signed the above letter know that Washington is so broken that they hope Governor Abbott can protect the Texas electric grid and save their home state. The EMP Commission recommended that the national grid be “islanded” – individual states can protect transformers, generators, and control systems within their borders so their “lights will stay on” even if the rest of the nation goes into blackout. Can the states compensate for the incompetence and lethargy of Washington, and act in time? When the states must “build walls” against EMP attack by the new barbarians, does it portend the advent of a New Dark Ages? Or is it an opportunity to reform federalism, so that governance is again mostly by the states, as was intended by the Founders? Decline of the West Even if nations, states, and cities of the West “build walls” to protect their electric grids and other critical infrastructures from EMP and cyber attacks by the new barbarians, it may be too late to avert a New Dark Ages. Like the barbarians of old who conquered a Roman Empire become militarily weak, the new barbarians have been given a golden opportunity by NATO’s military weakness to crush the Free World through brute force. Consider, for example, the obsolescence of the U.S. nuclear deterrent – the ultimate security guarantee for the United States and its allies. Nuclear arms dominate the military balance not only because they are the most destructive weapons, but because they are also the most powerful politically and psychologically and shape the mental geography of international relations, casting a shadow of influence over war and peace and even the daily lives of nations. Indeed, nuclear dominance makes possible conventional military aggression without resort to nuclear arms, and makes possible victory without war -through nuclear blackmail and intimidation. Accordingly, the rapid modernization and deployment by Russia and China of new generations of advanced nuclear weapons and missiles that have no counterpart in the West, is alarming. The U.S. nuclear deterrent is decades old, decreasingly credible, and there are no near-term prospects of correcting the growing strategic imbalance between East and West in modernity and technological advancement of nuclear weapons: –The U.S. B-21 next-generation strategic bomber, designed to replace the venerable B-2 whose stealthiness is fast disappearing against new Russian and Chinese radar technologies, will not see Initial Operating Capability (IOC) until, at the earliest, 2020. –U.S. ballistic missile submarines, the survivable backbone of the U.S. nuclear deterrent, during the Cold War used to number 41, have been reduced to 14 aged Ohios, and will be further reduced to 12 Ohio Replacement Program submarines scheduled for IOC in 2031. –U.S. Minuteman ICBMs, now decades old and long past their original service life, may be replaced by a new ICBM after 2030, although the Obama administration and Secretary of Defense Ash Carter oppose any new ICBM program. Thus, a gaping window of vulnerability yawns open in the technological nuclear balance that has no prospects of being closed for many years. What might Russia, China, North Korea, or Iran do with this opportunity? In the worst case, merely about 50 ICBMs like Russia’s SS-18 could make a disarming surprise attack, delivering 500 highly accurate warheads against the U.S. nuclear deterrent’s 450 Minuteman silos, 3 strategic bomber bases, 2 ports where half the ballistic missile submarine fleet (7 boats) is normally anchored, and key command and control centers. Would the 7 Ohios at sea survive the scores of Russian attack submarines hunting them? Would any surviving Ohios be able to receive an Emergency Action Message through a Russian Super-EMP attack? If any Ohios survive and can execute a ragged, uncoordinated retaliatory strike against some Russian missile silos (many empty) and bomber bases (all vacated), what would then be the fate of U.S. cities? Today, even North Korea, with its 6 KN-08 ICBMs, could potentially destroy the 3 U.S. strategic bomber bases, 2 Ohio submarine ports, and make an EMP attack that could cripple the U.S. nuclear deterrent and civil society. The waning credibility of the U.S. nuclear deterrent may account for why Russia, China, and North Korea engage in so much nuclear saber rattling. Sometimes barking dogs do bite. The New Barbarian Hordes The balance of conventional military power between East and West is also alarming. If Ukraine is annexed or dominated by Moscow, Russia will again directly confront NATO in central Europe. New NATO members Hungary, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, and Poland are no match for Russia. Nor are traditional NATO members in Western Europe what they were during the Cold War. They are no match for the modernized Russian Army. Collectively, the armed forces of NATO’s 27 members (excluding the United States) seem impressive at about 1.7 million active duty, although this is only about half their Cold War strength of 3.3 million. European NATO (including Turkey) collectively has 6,000 tanks and 2,000 fighter aircraft among 27 member nations. However, NATO’s European members have very little power projection capability – their armed forces are largely incapable of traveling far beyond their national territories. Only the United Kingdom has significant power projection, estimated capable of sending 30,000 troops overseas. France, after the U.K. estimated to have the greatest power projection capabilities in Europe, had great difficulty projecting even a small force numbering 2,000 Foreign Legionnaires to Mali in January 2013. France needed help with aerial refueling and logistical support from the U.S., Canada, and Britain. When European NATO led the bombing campaign against Libya in March 2011, they quickly exhausted their ammunition. They needed resupply from the United States. European NATO was hard pressed to conduct military operations against Libya – a helpless adversary. Russian armed forces comprise 1.4 million active duty troops, 3,300 modern main battle tanks (18,000 more tanks in reserve), and 2,750 military aircraft. Russian power projection is superior to European NATO’s capabilities to reinforce Eastern Europe. In September 2013, Russia’s exercise ZAPAD-13 (“WEST-13”) simulated an invasion of Poland and the Baltic states, projecting in a few days to NATO’s frontline 22,000 troops (more than the collective active duty forces of the Baltics.) NATO responded in November 2013 with STEADFAST-JAZZ deploying 6,000 troops (fewer than one-third Russia’s ZAPAD-13 deployment) to Poland and the Baltics to simulate repelling a “hypothetical” invader. Earlier, in July 2013, Russia’s largest military exercise since the Cold War projected 160,000 troops and 1,000 tanks across the vastness of Siberia. One Russian “exercise,” really a threatened invasion, in a few days deployed 150,000 soldiers to Ukraine’s border, more than the 90,000 active duty personnel in Ukraine’s entire armed forces. Arrayed opposite Russia in NATO’s frontline are the Baltic states (Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia) with about 20,000 active duty in their collective armed forces, no main battle tanks, and one fighter aircraft. If the Cold War returns to Europe, the other NATO frontline states are in little better shape than the Baltics. Among the frontline states Poland is the strongest, with 120,000 active duty and 991 tanks. Collectively, all the East European NATO state (Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary, and Romania) have 214 fighter aircraft. Overshadowing all these numbers, Russia enjoys a virtual monopoly in tactical nuclear weapons, having an estimated 3,000-8,000. Unlike the Cold War, when NATO planned to fight defensively in Germany, today’s plans require rescuing Eastern Europe. NATO would have to project power eastward, through territory where NATO has never exercised large-scale operations. NATO would have to fight a meeting engagement, or offensive operations against an entrenched Russian Army that fought over and exercised on East European terrain during World War II and the Cold War. Never during the Cold War did Moscow enjoy such an advantage against NATO’s frontline states in conventional and nuclear forces as it does today. Space will not permit analysis of the conventional military balance between China and the United States. Suffice it to say that the most likely locations for crisis and war are the South China Sea and the Koreas, where China’s military capabilities are strongest and most prepared against a weakening U.S. military that must project power across the Pacific. The New Doomsday Average citizens of the West know little or nothing of EMP or the nuclear and conventional military balance of power. But majorities in the United States and NATO nations feel deeply insecure, know from TV and newspaper headlines that the West is in deep trouble, know in their bones that the world order once so favourable to Western Civilization, is imperiled. Millions in the U.S. and the West are survivalists or “preppers” and there are even popular TV shows dedicated to them. Elites in the West should heed the wisdom of their people, whose inchoate anxieties about an impending doomsday are probably more to be trusted than the “experts” whose foreign and defense policies have brought the West to the brink of catastrophe. Democracy, after all, is premised on trusting in the collective wisdom of the people. Interestingly, anxieties over a modern doomsday may account for controversy among historians over whether or not Medieval Christendom panicked over an impending Apocalypse in 1000 AD. Medievalist Richard Landes, who makes a compelling case that the 1000 AD Apocalypse was feared, writes, “There may even be a correlation between wishing to minimize present-day apocalyptic concerns and denying any reality to earlier ones.” Western elites reject as “politically incorrect” such scholarship as Samuel Huntington’s The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order (1996), preferring to believe, as an article of secular humanist faith, that all differences are negotiable, and if they are not it is the fault of Western imperialism and racism. Yet apocalyptic conquest and collapse of civilization is a recurrent theme in history, known not only to historians, but to anyone who lived through the 20th Century. The foundational facts and myths of Western Civilization from both its Christian and Classical traditions from ancient Greece and Rome teach that the civilized and the good must be defended. Otherwise, as Roman historian Tacitus writes, “Vae victus (Woe to the vanquished).” The Bible, the cornerstone of Western Civilization, is replete with histories and legends about civilizational doomsday. Millions of the religious are so fearful about the course of current events, they believe Mankind is in the “end times” and faces The Bible’s predicted Apocalypse, that some historians interpret as inspired by the Roman destruction of Jerusalem and diaspora of Jewish civilization in 70 AD. Another basic book of Western Civilization, little read today, is the Homeric epic from the Greek Dark Ages about the conquest of Troy, whose refugees supposedly founded Rome, according to Virgil’s Aeneid. Virgil describes with poetic imagery the advance of the enemy upon doomed Troy, eliciting feelings of dread recognizable to Everyman today fearful of tyranny and terrorism pounding at the gates of the West: Just at the outer doors of the vestibule Sprang Pyrrhus, all in bronze and glittering, As a serpent hidden swollen underground By a cold winter, writhes into the light, On vile grass fed, his old skin cast away, Renewed and glossy, rolling slippery coils, With lifted underbelly rearing sunward And triple tongue a-flicker. Surely recognizable too, twenty centuries after Virgil wrote, is the violent overthrow of Trojan civilization, symbolized by the murder of King Priam, by means all too familiar in our times — decapitation: To the altar step itself he dragged him trembling, Slipping in the pooled blood of his son, And took him by the hair with his left hand. The sword flashed in his right; up to the hilt He thrust it in his body. That was the end Of Priam’s age, the doom that took him off, With Troy in flames before his eyes, his towers Headlong fallen–he that in other days Had ruled in pride so many lands and peoples, The power of Asia. On the distant shore The vast trunk lies headless without a name. The West, if it is to avoid King Priam’s fate, needs a new Charlemagne.

How EmailGate Weakened America’s National Security

It’s safe to say that Moscow, Beijing and Tehran know a lot more about Hillary Clinton than the American public does

By John R. Schindler • 06/01/16 11:53am

Last week’s devastating report by the State Department Inspector General has made it plain to all who wish to see that Hillary Clinton, as secretary of state, violated numerous regulations pertaining to federal records and cybersecurity, then lied effusively about it to the public. That State IG assessment has left Clinton’s defenders without much of a leg to stand on if they want an honest, fact-based defense of her actions in EmailGate. Therefore, Team Clinton has resorted to their customary deceptions and dissimulations, buttressed by legalisms designed to obscure truths rather than reveal them. Here we have Lanny Davis, a top Clinton consigliere for more than two decades, explaining how Hillary is innocent of any wrongdoing, citing five allegedly “indisputable” facts. Then follows the customary litany, cited by her defenders whenever EmailGate comes up. This was legal. Besides, everybody does it. Plus nothing was “labeled” classified at the time it appeared in Ms. Clinton’s private email. To those acquainted with Clintonspeak, the only thing missing is a discussion of the meaning of “is.” Mr. Davis’ most interesting claim is his assertion that “there is no evidence that Clinton’s private server was ever successfully hacked… all the dire and dark warnings from partisan Republicans about the secretary of state risking the nation’s security by using a private server are, in fact, all speculation—based on no facts whatsoever.” This is deception of a special kind. In the first place, why has the Romanian hacker Guccifer pleaded guilty to hacking into Hillary’s server if he did not, in fact, do so? Moreover, the FBI has been in possession of said server for months, and they have uncovered several successful hacking efforts into it when it resided in an upstairs bathroom of the Clinton residence in Chappaqua, New York. “We know it was hacked numerous times, it’s that simple,” explained a senior U.S. counterintelligence official who is privy some of the FBI’s findings. “If I were Vladimir Putin I’d fire the head of the SVR [Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service] if he didn’t get a good look at Hillary’s emails when they were sitting in plain sight online,” he added with a laugh. Here, Mr. Davis is hiding behind the fact that the FBI has not yet released the findings of its investigation into EmailGate to the public. Until they do, there is indeed “no evidence” of foreign intelligence services accessing Ms. Clinton’s emails—since the FBI considers that evidence classified until it is deemed fit to be publicly released. This is how the classification rules that Hillary and her staff so assiduously ignored actually work. In their customary fashion, Team Clinton is pushing back with a touch of cheek. Ms. Clinton now plans a serious effort to sell herself as the better national security candidate than Donald Trump, based on her tenure of secretary of state. While there is no denying Mr. Trump is a national security neophyte who seems unacquainted with some of the basic lingo of that field, he is not under FBI investigation for espionage and political corruption.

Police Now Using “Pre-Crime” Algorithm To Target and Label Innocent Citizens as Criminals

By John Vibes

It was recently reported that the Chicago Police Department has implemented an Orwellian new program that targets innocent citizens based on indicators that they might be a person who has the potential to carry out a crime. Similar to dystopian films like Minority Report, a complex computer algorithm will track and catalog every citizen in the city, and use private data about each person to determine whether or not they could be a potential criminal. Once an innocent civilian has been labeled as a threat, they are then notified that they have been marked as a potential criminal and that they are now under police surveillance. This disturbing program has quietly been in place for over three years, and in that time, government agents have visited the homes of more than 1,300 innocent people who had high numbers on the list, to inform them that they are now regarded as potential criminals. According to the New York Times, Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson says that officials this year are stepping up those visits, with at least 1,000 more people. “We are targeting the correct individuals. We just need our judicial partners and our state legislators to hold these people accountable,” Johnson insisted. However, activists and advocates of civil liberties are not convinced. Karen Sheley, the director of the Police Practices Project of the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois, has pointed out that these innocent people are being flagged based on criteria that haven’t even been publicly established. “We’re concerned about this. There’s a database of citizens built on unknown factors, and there’s no way for people to challenge being on the list. How do you get on the list in the first place? We think it’s dangerous to single out somebody based on secret police information,” Sheley said. The current program is said to only target individuals who seem to show a high risk of being involved in a shooting. However, it is also important to point out that most laws, especially the bad ones, aren’t even focused on primary violations of life or property, but are instead focused on secondary actions that are seen as causal factors for these violations. It certainly should be illegal to harm people or their property, but most modern societies, in an apparent attempt to take preventative measures, have outlawed actions that could be a precursor to actual criminal activity. Some have referred to this concept as “pre-crime.” The idea is that people should be punished if they behave in a way that someone else is uncomfortable with, even if they have not harmed anyone. These types of laws would include: all drug laws, all gun laws, seatbelt laws, intellectual property and other victimless, non-violent crimes, where no person has been harmed, and no property has been stolen or damaged. Drugs are illegal, we are told, because their use could lead to actual crime. Guns are highly restricted because someone could get hurt. Seatbelt laws are imposed because someone could get hurt. And, intellectual property is imposed because someone may lose their investment. The arguments in favor of these laws are all overblown or flat out wrong, but the fear of future crime is always used to justify bad laws that have no basis in justice or restitution. Our entire justice system is made up of this nonsense, which persecutes people who have not hurt anyone or anything because their actions apparently indicate that they will do something harmful in the future. To begin to target individuals before they have even done anything is taking this idea of pre-crime a step further, ushering in a new age of Orwellian surveillance.

General Mills Recalls 10 Million Pounds of Flour over E. Coli Outbreak

by Anna Scanlon Posted on June 1, 2016

General Mills has recalled an estimated 10 million pounds of flour over fears that they contain the E. coli virus. Over 38 people have been stricken with the virus in over 20 states, and General Mills has linked it to their flour. This E. coli outbreak is caused by the strain O121, which causes cramps, bloody diarrhea, vomiting and can potentially lead to a life-threatening situation. The Centers for Disease Control noted that most people who became ill with this particular strain recall baking something homemade prior to becoming ill. Several in this group noted that they have used the General Mills brand of flour. It was also noted that many of those who presented symptoms of E. coli had also eaten raw dough or batter while making their homemade treats, which General Mills specifically advises against. General Mills also notes that older and very young individuals, and those with compromised immune systems are most at risk for developing E. coli. The particular populations should take special precautions not to consume raw dough or batter and to wash their hands thoroughly after touching flour.

The company stated: “While have not found any presence of E. coli O121 in any General Mills flour products or in the flour manufacturing facility, and we have not been contacted directly by any consumer reporting confirmed illnesses related to these products, we want to take an active part in helping to prevent food borne illnesses.” General Mills has urged anyone who thinks they may have E. coli to contact their doctor. If they are diagnosed, they are asked to report to their local health authority. Flours being recalled include:

13.5 ounce Gold Medal Wondra

2 pound Gold Medal All Purpose Flour

5 pound Gold Medal Unbleached Flour

5 pound Signature Kitchens All Purpose Flour Enriched Bleached

5 pound Signature Kitchens Unbleached Flour All Purpose Enriched

2 pound Gold Medal Self Rising Flour

Individuals engaging in cooking projects should be aware that baking or cooking items with flour in them will automatically destroy any bacteria. Consumers should also take care to wash off any utensils or cooking items that come into contact with flour thoroughly after use.

TV: “Truly unsettling” discovery at Fukushima… problem “far greater than previously thought” — Boss reveals 600 tons of fuel melted, can’t find it — Top Official: “Nobody really knows where fuel is”… We may never be able to get it and just leave wherever — “Uncontrollable fission” is continuing under site (VIDEO)

Published: June 2nd, 2016 at 1:18 am ET By ENENews

ABC Australia, May 24, 2016 (emphasis added): [ABC's Mark Willacy] has been invited on a tour of [Fukushima Daiichi]… What Willacy discovers is truly unsettling… retrieving hundreds of tonnes of melted nuclear fuel turns out to be far greater than previously thought.

ABC Australia transcript excerpts, May 24, 2016:

Willacy: Tonight we go on a journey into the heart of this ongoing crisis… and we reveal the frightening enormity of the clean-up… and how dangerous it still is. Gregory Jaczko, former Chairman of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission: This really is unchartered territory. Nobody really knows where the fuel is… There’s no playbook – they’re making this up as they go along. Willacy: The man in charge of decontaminating and decommissioning the Fukushima plant, Naohiro Masuda. Has anything like this ever been attempted before? Masuda: There has never been an accident at a nuclear plant like the one at Fukushima where three reactors had meltdowns. We are currently working on a timetable to decommission the reactors over the next 30 to 40 years. Naoto Kan, Former Prime Minister: I think it will take longer… This is a major accident, which has never happened anywhere in the world… 40 years is an optimistic view. Willacy: We are heading to the buildings housing the melted reactors… Tepco is worried about possible nuclear terrorism, and won’t allow us to film certain security sites. Masuda: This is a job we’ve never done and there is no textbook. Willacy: [At Reactor 3 there was an] explosion right after the nuclear fuel melted… What happened inside [Reactor 2] no-one really knows… [Reactor 1] is where probably the worst meltdown occurred. They don’t know where the nuclear fuel is. Masuda: We haven’t actually seen where the melted fuel fell, so it’s important to find it as soon as possible. Willacy: For the first time, Foreign Correspondent can reveal just how vast the amount of melted nuclear fuel is, the three molten blobs that lie somewhere deep within each of these buildings. Masuda: It’s estimated that 200 tonnes of debris lies within each unit… 600 tonnes of melted debris fuel and a mixture of concrete and other metals are likely to be here. Willacy: The most daunting task, one the nuclear industry has never faced, is getting the melted fuel out. TEPCO admits the technology it needs hasn’t been invented. Jaczko: It may be possible that we’re never able to remove the fuel. You may just wind up having to leave it there and somehow entomb it as it is. I mean that’s certainly a possibility. There is no playbook, they’re making this up as they go along. Kan: If all the reactors had had a meltdown, there was a risk that half or all of Japan could have been destroyed… the accident took us to the brink of destruction. Jaczko: You have to now accept that in all nuclear power plants… there’s a chance you can have this kind of a very catastrophic accident… that’s the reality of nuclear power. ABC Australia, May 24, 2016: Fukushima clean-up chief still hunting for 600 tonnes of melted radioactive fuel… [TEPCO] has revealed that 600 tonnes of reactor fuel melted during the disaster, and that the exact location of the highly radioactive blobs remains a mystery… [C]hief of decommissioning at Fukushima, Naohiro Masuda, said the company hoped to… begin removing it from 2021… “But unfortunately, we don’t know exactly where (the fuel) is” [said Masuda]. [Gregory Jaczko, Chairman of the US NRC] at the time of the meltdowns at Fukushima doubts the fuel can be retrieved… “Nobody really knows where the fuel is… It may be possible that we’re never able to remove the fuel. You may just have to wind up leaving it there and somehow entomb it as it is.”… For the first time, TEPCO has revealed just how much of the mostly uranium fuel melted down… [Masuda said] “about 600 tonnes of melted debris fuel and a mixture of concrete and other metals are likely to be there.” RT, May 24, 2016: 600 tons of melted radioactive Fukushima fuel still not found, clean-up chief reveals… [The fuel] burnt through the respective reactor pressure vessels, concentrating somewhere on the lower levels of the station… fuel from Reactor 1 poured out completely… the exact location of the highly radioactive “runaway” fuel remains mystery for TEPCO. The absolutely uncontrollable fission of the melted nuclear fuel assemblies continue somewhere under the remains of the station… [TEPCO's] plan for Fukushima nuclear power plant implies a 30-40 year period… Yet experts doubt the present state of technology is sufficient to deal with the unprecedented technical task.

Frantic volcanic activity seen across much of the globe

Mario Picazo Meteorologist, PhD

Wednesday, June 1, 2016, 6:06 - Several volcanos around the world were very active last week spewing enormous amounts of ash and gas into the atmosphere and forcing thousands of people to leave their homes. But it´s not all just about volcanic activity, there has also been quite a bit of earthquake activity along some the volcano impacted areas, especially in the Pacific Ring of Fire. During the last 10 days close to 40 volcanos worldwide have been showing signs of activity and great deal of them, 34, are located along the very active Ring Fire. Mount Sinabung is just one of the 130 volcanoes that extend along the island of Sumatra in Indonesia. Considering that in the 20th century the average number of volcanic eruptions was 35 per year, what we are seeing just this week is above last century´s average for an entire year. This increasing volcanic activity around the the Ring of Fire is not new, the region is home to 452 volcanoes, 75% of all earth's, and geologists have been warning that this 25,000 mile stretch of active and dormant volcanoes is becoming more unstable in recent years. Satelite image of Mt Sinabung, the most active volcano in Indonesia and one of the most active in the world. (source : Google maps) Sinabung, the deadliest eruption of the week During the weekend of May 21 and 22, the northern skies of the Indonesian island of Sumatra were covered with a thick black cloud of ash and gases resulting from the eruption of Mount Sinabung, Indonesia's most active volcano. Several cities in the area were evacuated and in the village of Gembar, seven people lost their lives, all of them farmers, after inhaling deadly gases. Sinabung is one of the many active volcanoes in the island, and after showing signs of activity back in early November of 2014, many residents in the area were forced to relocate in other villages of northern Sumatra located at a safer distance from the volcano. Mount Sinabung continued to show signs of activity late last week, and was still on the highest alert level with potential for more eruptions. Costa Rica, Mexico, Italy also affected by volcano eruptions While Sinabung was doing its thing in Indonesia, many other volcanos around the world were showing signs of activity this week. One of the most active has been Turrialba in Costa Rica. The small Central America country has a dozen active volcanoes and it is located close to the capital, San Jose. Early last week, a prolonged and violent eruption dropped a significant amount of ash over the city and nearby towns, forcing many people to wear masks and in some cases evacuate entire neighborhoods. Other relevant volcanos that have shown activity this week are Mexico's Popocatépetl and Mount Etna in Sicily, Italy. In the case of the Mexican volcano, the Monday (May 23) eruption was very fiery, with significant ash and lava flows along the foothills. Due to local weather conditions the large cloud of ash covered many areas of the nearby city of Puebla and forced the local airport to close. This recent eruption has been the first major one since the year 2000.

VIDEO: Muslims are setting Paris on fire, turning the city into a war zone again

Submitted by IWB, on June 2nd, 2016

Muslim savages turn Paris into war zone, again. Station Barbès-Rochechouart. France. Jul 19, 2014. Just another day in your neighborhood with your Muslim sub-animal neighbors. As usual, there is a complete media blackout about the events from the despicably dishonest, corrupted, traitorous, Sharia compliant mainstream media, while the equally corrupted, traitorous, Sharia compliant government officials (Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris, François Hollande, President of France, and their counterparts David Cameron from U.K., Angela Merkel from Germany, etc.) continue flapping their oral sphincter and diarrhea of the mouth about Islamofauxbia and denying the existence of Islamic “no-go zones” or (called “zones urbaines sensibles” in French, http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/world …) while in reality, there are now 751 of those, and counting, keeping the true citizens in the dark until the very last minutes their heads are on the chopping blocks while the corrupted traitors themselves prepared for their own sound exits with stuffed coffers of bribed petrodollars from the Islamofascists Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar, Yemen, etc., just like the 9-11 terrorists’ taqiyya telling airline passengers that they would be ok and alive as long as they conform to the terrorists’ orders (we all know how that ended), or like ISIS’s taqiyya telling the victims in orange jumpsuits that they would be alive, so that they would appear calm on camera until the minutes their heads are sawed off. The same traitors dhimmis morons (David Cameron) engages in endless, meaningless debates condemning truth sayers like Donald Trump, Geert Wilders and blocking their entries into U.K while their countries are being overrun by Muslim sub-animals flying ISIS flags, with cities after cities falling into Muzzy hands (London-istan now with Muslim terrorist as mayor). There would likely be bloodbath and civil wars, if the non-Muslim citizens refuse to pay jizya (Islamic tax that imposed on non-Muslims for the right to live under Sharia compliant Muslim society) and want to live. Whether that would happen now when the population of Muslim sub-animals in most Western societies are still in single digit, or later when it becomes much greater, the choice is clear. “Je suis Charlie”, “Je suis Paris”, “Je suis Brussels”, “Je suis London”, “Je suis Madrid”, soon to be “Je suis Berlin”, “Je suis Washington D.C.”, etc. while the bought out, corrupted dhimmis announced that climate change was the most pressing and serious national security threat. Vote Trump!

Texas floods: Enough rain fell in May to cover entire state 8 inches deep

By Michael Martinez and Ben Brumfield, CNN Updated 8:47 PM ET, Sun May 31, 2015

(CNN) So much rain has fallen this May on flood-ravaged Texas that it could cover the entire state with 8 inches of water, meteorologists say. Every drop of rain these days is a drop too many in much of Texas, where 22 people have died and President Barack Obama has declared a major disaster. Over the weekend, a University of Houston student saw an object in Brays Bayou and reported it to campus police, who contacted Houston authorities, according to Houston Police Department Sgt. J.T. Parker. Police found a male body, and a preliminary investigation suggests the death is related to flooding, said Parker. Elsewhere near Houston, police evacuated residents from 20 homes in the suburb of Rosenberg on Saturday. Residents in at least 14 homes more were deciding whether to leave as the Brazos River threatened to rise, Lt. William Henry said. Several rivers in Texas were at flood stage at 108 locations, the National Weather Service said Saturday, but on Sunday the rain seemed to have let up in the area, according to the service. CNN affiliate KPRC reported that some 600 cattle were trapped by high waters in the Trinity River. Cowboys came to their aid, steering the larger cattle to a rail yard, and loading calves onto air boats, KPRC said. Torrential rains have already given Texas the wettest month on record, according to Texas A&M climatologists. And extreme river and creek flooding has broken many records and swept away hundreds of homes. In all, 37.3 trillion gallons of water have fallen over the state of Texas in May, the National Weather Service said. While a period of dry weather was expected Sunday in Texas, showers and thunderstorms hit some areas in the Northeast and Southeast on Sunday. Elsewhere, heavy rain soaked Atlanta Sunday afternoon, flooding some metro areas of the city.

France floods claim three more lives as massive mop-up begins

By Benjamin Marcus and Angela Dewan, CNN Updated 8:19 AM ET, Sat June 4, 2016

Paris (CNN) Parisians let out a cautious sigh of relief Saturday as they watched water levels in the Seine River finally begin to drop following days of miserable flooding. But the rest of the country was not so lucky, with three new deaths reported. The Seine, which runs through the city, burst it banks after days of heavy rains, causing chaos in the city. Some public transportation services and riverside businesses were shut down, while the world-famous Louvre museum scrambled to move 150,000 pieces of art to higher ground in a painstaking operation, closing its doors for a second day Saturday. The Seine in Paris crested at 6.1 meters (20 feet) above its usual levels early Saturday, the environment ministry reported, and the floods are slowly receding. etc. and the news story continues..

The Battle Of Man

by Hal Lindsey

In 1972, I released a book called, Satan is Alive and Well on Planet Earth. That was a year after William Peter Blatty’s novel called The Exorcist, and a year before the film version of that book. Satan is Alive and Well sold more than 8 million copies. The Exorcist film, adjusted for inflation, is the 9th highest grossing movie of all time. In those years, interest in Satan was at a peak — partly because of a smalltime hoodlum, turned cult leader, turned mass killer named Charles Manson. With Manson, the world caught a real glimpse of the face of evil. People realized that his ability to turn young people into monsters was something more than crime as usual. Since then, interest in Satan has ebbed and flowed many times. Now, it’s building again. Fictional versions of him regular appear in films, television shows, music, and video games. For a society that can’t get enough of anti-heroes, the devil is the ultimate bad boy. But he’s also the ultimate loser. Think of his position. He’s locked in a battle with the omnipotent Creator of all things. What strategy can he possibly employ in such a battle? How can he who is merely mighty have any hope against the Almighty? God’s power knows no limits. Revelation 19:6 says, “For the Lord God omnipotent reigneth!” Limited power cannot defeat infinite power. But the devil is not stupid. He has a strategy. He has chosen to do what any military commander would — find a point of vulnerability and exploit it. You might think it impossible to find vulnerability in the all-powerful Lord of the universe. But you would be wrong. Love and Vulnerability Every romance novel, every teenager-in-love pop song, every he-done-me-wrong country ballad, every romantic film, every good old-fashioned love story… carries an underlying point. Love makes you vulnerable. Love, in all its forms, opens us up to the possibility of pain. The dearest friend can be a source of anguish. You feel the hurt as you read the words of King David. “Even my own familiar friend in whom I trusted, Who ate my bread, Has lifted up his heel against me.” (Psalms 41:9) The greater and more intense the love, the more painful the betrayal. No one can break a parent’s heart quite like that parent’s son or daughter. At the same time, there’s no other pain quite like what a child feels when betrayed by parents. Romantic love almost guarantees sorrow and grief somewhere down the line. Maybe there will be a breakup, and that will hurt. But even if the couple stays together, and they marry for life, “Till death do us part” hangs over them. Husband and wife rarely die together. In almost all cases — one will go, one will stay, and there will be heartbreak. Although love makes us vulnerable to pain, it’s worth it. The most miserable people of all are those whose past pain makes them fearful of love. They build walls around their hearts. They put up guard towers to keep watch. They’re wrong to do that. But we can all understand it. Satan looked at God, searching for a point of vulnerability, and there it was. Love. God is love. God loves human beings in greater, deeper ways than we can even imagine. But what really made God’s love a point of vulnerability was that He also gave humans the ability to love. By definition, that includes the power of choice. Automatons cannot love because real love requires a choice. Humans can love… or not. That’s why Satan chose mankind as the battlefield in his war with God. Knowing that God is completely pure and utterly holy, he thought he had won the Battle of Man when he persuaded Adam and Eve to sin. Their action unleashed the virus of sin into the world, infecting all of humanity from that time until now. Ephesians 5:5 says, “No immoral or impure person… has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.” With Satan’s victory in the Garden of Eden, every human being would be impure. How vulnerable did God’s love make Him? Picture Jesus hanging on a cross, receiving in Himself God’s justice for our sin. Consider the pain — physical and spiritual. It’s hard to imagine a more vulnerable figure. What held Him there? Soldiers? Nails? Those things couldn’t hold Him to the cross in a billion years! Love held Him there. Love for you, and love for me. Love made Him that vulnerable. Maybe your heart is broken. Maybe your love for a child, parent, friend, or spouse, made you vulnerable to a deeper hurt than you know how to express. I have a suggestion for you. Don’t go through it alone. In Philippians 3:10, the Apostle Paul put his deepest heart cry into words. “That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings.” “The fellowship of His sufferings” is not an easy place. But you will find Him there in richer, deeper more beautiful ways than you ever thought possible. C. S. Lewis asked, “Why love, if losing hurts so much?” The Christian can answer by citing no less of an authority than Jesus Himself. We are to love God and to love each other. Love is the greatest commandment, (Matthew 22:36-40), our highest purpose, and the mark of a Christian. (John 13:35) God also chose love. He chose to love us and be vulnerable to the pain of our rejection. And in that love, He never wavered. Satan saw it as a point of attack. But God used the love and resulting pain to defeat Satan, and redeem mankind. That is our example.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated that Jerusalem will never be redivided in a ceremony marking 49 years since the unification of Jerusalem on Sunday. "49 years ago, Jerusalem was released from its shackles. We will not return to a reality whereby the city is torn, divided, and wounded," Netanyahu said. President Reuven Rivlin also spoke at the ceremony, and called on the government not to empty the city of its symbols, touching upon the issue whereby government ministries are moving out of Jerusalem. The ceremony took place on Mt. Herzl and was attended by IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot, Police Comissioner Roni Alsheikh, and various government ministers and mayors. The ceremony began with torches being lit by various representatives of the IDF regional commands to remember those who fell trying to liberate the city from the Jordanians. Netanyahu also shared his memories of Jerusalem and said that the current, magical reality was at one time very different. "It was a reality of huge concrete walls with snipers on top, no mans lands and minefields," Netanyahu said. He continued saying, "The veterans here remember what the soldiers wrote on the military vehicles – 'there will not be a second Auschwitz, and there will not be a second Masada.' I remember the feeling of threatening danger and adrenaline and the spirit of our fighters, which thanks to them, our situation changed from one side to the other. This was proven once again – that the only way to guarantee our existence is our presence and ability to defend ourselves and to protect the security of the state of Israel." Netanyahu, who is flying on to Moscow on Monday, said that "placing the Israeli flag on the Western Wall was the second most important moment after the declaration of the State of Israel. This spiritual ascendance encompassed the entire nation, both in Israel and in the Diaspora. It was at that moment that a national consciousness was launched amongst Jews in the former Soviet Union." "Tomorrow, I'm flying to Moscow to mark 25 years of relations between Russia and Israel. But on the eve of the Six Day War, the armies which surrounded us were all armed and funded by the USSR. Russia is a global power, and our relations are getting stronger. The strengthening of this relationship strengthens our national security and prevents unnecessary friction on our northern border." The prime minister also referred to the peace process and said that nobody would force upon Israel international dictates. "Peace is achieved through direct and free negotiations between the parties. We've seen it with peace with Egypt and Jordan. It was not achieved by international dictates. In the period after the Six Day War, when the military campaign was over, the political campaign began," said Netanyahu. "The same players in the international arena who did not lift a finger to help us when the threat of destruction hovered over us were those who tried to impose a political settlement on us. It did not work then and will not work today. Any international dictate hardens the Palestinians’ positions. Anyone who denies our connection to Jerusalem, transforms the Temple Mount into a center of religious incitement, who does not renounce terrorism - still has a long way to peace. " President Rivlin said at the ceremony: "Our eyes were raised towards you Jerusalem. 49 years ago our prayers were answered. The city opened its closed heart to her lovers who were knocking at her gates. Prophetic vision became reality. Jerusalem returned to its children. Here, on this heroic hill, one of the symbols of the heroism of the State of Israel , a blood-soaked battle took place in which more than 180 fighters, within whom the fire of Jerusalem burned, were killed… We sacrificed ourselves for Jerusalem because we knew that one must insist when it comes to her.” Rivlin also spoke about the planned move of the Public Broadcasting Authority from Jerusalem and expressed his joy that the Prime Minister decided to stop the process. "I hope this is so. This is because it is not possible that 80 years to the day after the first Hebrew broadcast, from the “Voice of Jerusalem” radio station, public broadcasting from Jerusalem will cease, "said the president. "One does not give up on symbols. We must not empty Jerusalem of its symbols. Jerusalem is not just a strip of land, it is a spiritual legacy, the spirit of the Jewish people.”

Gov. Scott declares state of emergency as Tropical Storm Colin approaches Florida

By Stephanie Allen Stephanie Allen Contact ReporterStaff Writer

Gov. Rick Scott has declared a state of emergency for 34 counties, including most of Central Florida, as Tropical Storm Colin heads toward the state. As of 11 a.m., the storm had maximum sustained winds of 50 mph extending up to 230 miles out from the center, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami. It was located about 315 miles southwest of Tampa and moving northeast-northeast at about 14 mph. Forecasters expect Colin to make landfall this evening near the Big Bend and Panhandle area. It should then move across North Florida toward Jacksonville and into southeastern Georgia by Tuesday morning. Colin isn't expected to directly hit Central Florida, but forecasters say the outer bands will bring heavy rain, wind gusts and a moderate risk of tornadoes. Most of Central Florida is under a tropical storm warning. The warning was first issued for both of Florida's coasts, including Flagler, Volusia and Brevard counties. It was expanded this morning to include Lake, Orange and Seminole counties. As of about 11 a.m., Osceola County wasn't included. All of Central Florida is also under a flood advisory until Tuesday morning. Forecasters say the area should see rain most of today, with the heaviest starting later this afternoon. 'Protect property with sandbags' Rain totals could top 4 inches in some parts, said Matt Bragaw, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Melbourne. Heavy rain, localized flooding and wind gusts up to 40 mph will be the primary threats, Bragaw said. There is also a slight risk for tornadoes, especially along the Interstate 4 corridor, according to the Weather Service. "If you live in a low-lying area, flooding will be a potential threat," Bragaw said. "You may want to take steps to protect property with sandbags." Colin was originally expected to make landfall late Monday or early Tuesday, but picked up speed overnight as it strengthened. Forecasters say Central Florida should start feeling the storms effects by 7 p.m. Tornadoes possible Storm force winds of 39 mph up to 57 mph are expected to move into the Orlando-area after sunset and continue through early Tuesday morning, when Colin moves off Georgia's coast. Forecasters are warning residents to be alert and ready tonight, as most of the threats will come while people are sleeping. "Tornadoes will be possible with any passing squall after sunset," Bragaw said. "Be ready to take quick action, especially if you live in a mobile home or a building that is particularly vulnerable to damaging winds." Seminole County emergency officials are monitoring river and lake levels in the Little Wekiva River Basin, which includes the communities of Altamonte Springs, Longwood, Heathrow and neighborhoods along Markham Wood Road. That area is prone to flooding during periods of heavy rain. Sandbags in Central Florida Officials have opened a sandbag fill site at 4170 U.S. Highway 17-92 for residents concerned about flooding. Seminole also has opened its Emergency Operations Center at the Sheriff's Office, at 100 Bush Boulevard, in Sanford, to monitor the storm. Lake County is also handing out sandbags at four fire stations today from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Residents should bring their own shovels. The sites are: 23023 State Road 40, Astor 42700 State Road 19, Altoona 2505 Spring Lake Road, Fruitland Park 6234 County Road 561, Clermont The City of Clermont will be handing out sandbags at 400 12th St. Several fill sites are open this morning in Brevard County, including at 2955 Pluckebaum Road in Cocoa and at 124 Industrial Park Ave. in New Smyrna Beach. Osceola County handed out more than 7,200 sandbags at seven locations on Sunday. Officials do not plan to continue that today. Orange County officials said they don't plan on opening any sandbag sites today, either. Preparation is key Orlando residents, though, can fill bags at 1010 S. Woods Ave. City Officials said the emergency operations center is monitoring the storm. Officials are warning all Central Florida residents to have their emergency plans and kits ready. They're also telling people to keep cellphones charged and handy, and to pay attention to changing road conditions. The Florida Highway Patrol is reminding drivers to keep their headlights on in the rain and to increase the distance between vehicles. Officials at the Orlando International Airport are monitoring the storm, but haven't canceled any flights. SunRail trains are running on time this morning. Staff writers David Harris, Christal Hayes and Martin E. Comas contributed to this report.

Obama's Ramadan statement includes veiled swipe at Trump

President Obama issued a statement Sunday evening extending best wishes to Muslims in the U.S. and around the world at the start of Islam's holy month of Ramadan. "For many, this month is an opportunity to focus on reflection and spiritual growth, forgiveness, patience and resilience, compassion for those less fortunate, and unity across communities," he said in the written statement. "Here in the United States, we are blessed with Muslim communities as diverse as our nation itself. There are those whose heritage can be traced back to the very beginning of our nation, as well as those who have only just arrived," he said, noting that their numbers include "doctors, lawyers, artists, teachers, scientists, community organizers, public servants, and military members." Then, in pointed contrast to Donald Trump's call to temporarily bar Muslims entering the United States, the president stated: "I stand firmly with Muslim American communities in rejection of the voices that seek to divide us or limit our religious freedoms or civil rights." "We will continue to welcome immigrants and refugees into our nation, including those who are Muslim," he added. Trump stood by his proposed ban in an interview Sunday with CBS News' "Face The Nation." "I'm not backing down. We have to do something. We have a problem in this country. We have a radical Islamic terrorism problem in this country, and, by the way, throughout the world, throughout the world. It's a problem. And it's a temporary ban. I'm not talking permanent. It's a temporary ban. We have to find out what is going on," said Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. In the White House statement, Mr. Obama also called attention to the plight of those displaced by the fighting in Syria and elsewhere: "Far too many Muslims may not be able to observe Ramadan from the comfort of their own homes this year or afford to celebrate Eid with their children. We must continue working together to alleviate the suffering of these individuals. This sacred time reminds us of our common obligations to uphold the dignity of every human being." As he has in past years, the president said he will invite a number of Muslim Americans to the White House for a celebration of Eid, the holiday marking the conclusion of Ramadan.

Kindergartners in WA state to be taught 'transgenderism'

Saturday, June 4, 2016 Michael F. Haverluck (OneNewsNow.com

Beginning as young as kindergarten, public school students in the state of Washington will be taught about “transgenderism” effective in the fall 2017 semester. New LGBT-friendly changes to the Evergreen State’s health education learning standards have been applied so that instruction on “gender expression” will be mandatory for teachers to administer in their classrooms to students, according to the Daily Caller. As early as the age of five, children enrolled in public schools will be taught to “Understand [that] there are many ways to express gender” —as part of the mandatory so-called “Self-Identify” sexual health curriculum. The educational materials will instruct students that gender is no longer determined by a person’s biological characteristics at birth. In fact, teachers will inform children through the curriculum that gender expression is now subjective to individual preference — and not limited to one’s actual sex. Such teachings about sexuality only begin in kindergarten, and then progress through students’ public school education to achieve higher levels of “understanding” about gender-confused individuals and others who practice sexually deviant behavior. Once a student is in the third grade, he or she will be required to “Explain that gender roles can vary considerably”now that dozens of gender types are recognized and promoted by the Obama administration, which worked to federaliz public school curricula through the implementation of its controversial Common Core. Further pushing the indoctrination demanded by the proliferating “LGBT rights” across America, public schools within the state will also force third graders to recognize and “Understand [the] importance of treating others with respect regarding [their] gender identity. ”Redefining the sexes Falling in line with President Barack Obama’s homosexual agenda that ultimately ended up with the United States Supreme Court redefining marriage to legalize same-sex “marriage” — so that the union is no longer solely recognized as being between one man and one woman — the state of Washington is redefining gender. According to the Northwest state’s health education glossary, gender is now officially defined as something that is based on a number of confusing contingencies. “Gender – A social construct based on emotional, behavioral, and cultural characteristics attached to a person’s assigned biological sex,” Washington’s newly revised glossary currently reads. In order to blur the lines even further between boys and girls — and between men and women — the public education system in the state seeks to make sure that students take a number of factors under consideration when attempting to pigeonhole another’s “true” or desired gender. The state’s health education learning standards attempts to do this though offering another definition. “Gender expression – The way someone outwardly expresses their gender,” the newly defined LGBT term reads. Even though changes have already been made to the state standards as public education officials are preparing to roll out the new curricula, a press release has not yet been issued by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) to alert concerned parents throughout the state of Washington about what their children will be subjected to within a year’s time. Admittedly, students’ objection to the new teachings — nor parental consent — were not addressed by the OSPI as it moves forward to implement its new sex education curriculum next year. When pressed, the OSPI conceded that it has not yet determined what would be done if students with sincerely held beliefs opposing the teachings object to completing assignments required under the new curriculum on sexuality.

Norway to Return Seized Children to Christian Parents After Int'l Pressure

By Anugrah Kumar , Christian Post Contributor June 5, 2016|10:05 am

The Bodnariu family.

The Christian parents of five children, who were seized by Norwegian child services seven months ago to "prevent" them from being "indoctrinated" with Christianity, will soon be reunited as the authorities have agreed to return the custody of the remaining four kids to the family. "We thank you all for your love, support, prayers, and active participation in the reunification of this family. May God richly bless you and repay you for all you have done to bring this family back together," says a statement from the Romanian Pentecostal parents, Marius and Ruth Bodnariu, who have been living in Norway for more than a decade, according to Romania Insider. Norway's Dagen newspaper reported that the decision to return the kids to their family is part of an agreement reached with the family. The five children were seized by the Norwegian Child Protective Services on Nov. 16 and 17 last year based on a teacher's concerns about how the kids were being raised by "radical" Christians who were "indoctrinating" their children. Parliamentarians, lawyers and Christian groups from many countries, including the United States, Romania and other part of Europe, raised serious concerns over the action of the Norwegian child services. In early April, only the youngest of the five children was returned to the parents. When the other children will be returned is not known. "It is very important for all of us to respect the privacy and uninterrupted intimacy of this family in the following period as the children resettle and reintegrate themselves in their natural family home and environment," the family's statement added. On Thursday, Romanian parliamentarian Ben Oni Ardelean wrote in a Facebook post that the Parliamentary Assembly of Council of Europe has approved a report on the Bodnariu case. "Today, the members of the Committee for Social Affairs, Health and Sustainable Development of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) have decided to elaborate a Draft Report on: 'Striking a balance between the best interest of the child and need to keep the families together.' … The report will consider to which extent the abusive measures taken by the Childcare Social Services from Norway are compatible with the Council of Europe's standards in this specific field, and the resolution, which will draw the main conclusions from the report, will make concrete legislative recommendations to the Norwegian competent authorities," Ardelean wrote, according to the Insider, which translated the post. The family appealed the agency's decision to remove the children last November, but it was rejected. Officials went to the family's home, allegedly without documentation, and seized two of the sons and arrested Ruth, who took her baby son, Ezekiel, with her to the police station, the British-based Christian Institute reported at the time. Officials also went to Marius' work and arrested him. After being interrogated for several hours, the parents and baby Ezekiel were freed and allowed to go home, but without the other children. The following day, officials went back to the Bodnariu's home and took Ezekiel into custody on the grounds that Ruth was "dangerous." Last month, more than 100 attorneys from the United States and abroad and members of the European Parliament wrote a letter to the Norwegian Prime Minister, saying the government's act of seizing the children violated domestic and international law, and urging their immediate release. "We find the facts of this international incident unacceptable not only on legal grounds but also on humanitarian and moral grounds. We view these transgressions as grievous breaches of domestic and international law… Therefore, it is important that Norway immediately release the children back to their biological parents," the authors of the letter demanded.

Calabasas fire forces thousands from homes

Posted 6:52 pm, June 5, 2016, by CNN Wires, Updated at 06:51pm, June 5, 2016

Hundreds of firefighters are battling a blaze in Los Angeles County that has forced at least 5,000 people to evacuate their homes, authorities said. Since the inferno started Saturday afternoon it has already torched 516 acres, Los Angeles County Deputy Fire Chief John Tripp said. As of Sunday morning, the blaze was 30% contained. The fire is on the slope of a canyon, “which makes it very dangerous for us to do a direct attack,” Tripp said. The wildfire broke out Saturday afternoon in the Calabasas area — a relatively affluent part of Los Angeles County that is home to a handful of celebrities, including Jessica Simpson and Toni Braxton, authorities said. About 3,700 homes — or about 5,000 people — were ordered to evacuate in Calabasas and nearby Topanga, mountainous communities west of Los Angeles and north of Malibu. On Sunday morning, authorities lifted the evacuation order for Calabasas, but Topanga residents should stay away, officials said. “The fire is not on the road, it is halfway up the side of a mountain,” Tripp said. “That’s why we can’t let people back in their homes.” So far, the blaze has destroyed a large building and damaged two homes, he said. How it started The fire started around 4:15 p.m. PT Saturday when a pickup truck struck a power pole on Mulholland Highway in Calabasas, the sheriff’s department said. “Witnesses reported that the truck was traveling at a high rate of speed before colliding into a power pole, causing the pole to fall and a transformer to explode, thus igniting the Calabasas fire,” Deputy Jeffrey A. Gordon said. Temperatures in nearby Topanga reached the mid-90s earlier in the day, according to the National Weather Service. The fire has been dubbed the “Old Fire” due to its proximity to Old Topanga Canyon Road. It came right up to the edges of Calabasas High School and Viewpoint School. Fighting blaze with garden hoses About 400 firefighters, along with water-dropping helicopters, are trying to contain the blaze, Tripp said. He said three firefighters were injured. Two suffered knee injuries, and one had a “cardiac event.” “This is extremely arduous work for them to do,” Tripp said. Steve Gentry, a photojournalist who filmed the firefighters, told CNN the situation was “very serious.” “At one point, the fire was licking right up through to the backyards of a lot of the homes of the residents in that area, to the point where even sheriffs’ deputies were grabbing garden hoses and using them to fight the fire,” he said. “Things here in California, they’re very dry and it doesn’t take a whole lot for a fire to get going and spread really rapidly.” Pictures of the blaze show residents staring at bright, tall flames creeping toward the sky, visible from nearby streets. Roseann Bleiweiss’ son told CNN the fire looked like “something out of a movie.” One social media user said ash could be spotted as far away as Dodger Stadium, about 30 miles away. Celebrities also spoke out about the fire. Ellen DeGeneres tweeted that her brother-in-law was out fighting the blaze. “Sending thanks to Portia’s brother Michael & all the rescue workers on the scene of this dangerous fire,” she said. Calabasas and the nearby Santa Monica Mountains are no stranger to wildfires — the area has experienced many dangerous blazes over the years. A particularly strong fire in 2013 burned nearly 28,000 acres in two days, threatening thousands of homes in Ventura County. But relief may be on the horizon for this fire, CNN meteorologist Derek Van Dam said. More wind will help bring up humidity from the coast, which will help firefighters. CNN’s Holly Yan, Carma Hassan, Salim Essaid and Mayra Cuevas contributed to this report. By Joe Sutton and Joshua Berlinger

Global Gun Control Advocates to Meet in NYC to Set UN Disarmament Agenda

Written by Joe Wolverton, II, J.D. Sunday, 05 June 2016

Anti-gun globalists will meet in New York City this week discuss ways to confiscate small arms and ammunition from civilians and to consolidate monopoly control over those weapons in the hands of the governments of United Nations (UN) member states. The convention is part of a UN-controlled process of disarmament called the Programme of Action (PoA). From June 6-10 delegates from around the world will attend the Sixth Biennial Meeting of States (BMS6) of the PoA. This latest planning meeting will give delegates an opportunity to move the ball closer to the goal of ridding the world's civilian population of the small arms and ammunition that could challenge the ability of UN-approved governments to carry out the will of the world body. Serving as an agenda for the deliberations will be the Chair's Summary published after the last meeting in 2015. For Americans, then, it will be instructive to examine this document and identify all of the proposals that would violate the Constitution, specifically the right to keep and bear arms as protected by the Second Amendment. To this end, I will highlight a few of the provisions of the Chair's Summary that represent the most clear and present danger to liberty. First, the plan as put forth in the Chair's Summary calls for the UN's member states to eliminate the threat of technologically advanced weapons, including so-called polymer firearms and 3D printed guns, as well as the tracking of materials used in the “craft-production of small arms and light weapons.” Not surprisingly, the representative from China called for increased UN-mandated regulations on 3D printers and the weapons they produce. Specifically, the Chair's Summary calls for “strengthening 3D printing regulations in the context of 3D weapon printing,” for “ensuring export licenses [are] in place for 3D printers,” for drawing global attention to “the need to pay attention to the resale of such printers,” and for “strengthening controls over 3D printing technology.” No one is shocked, of course, that the globalists at the UN want to draw up comprehensive plans to take guns — any and every variety of gun — out of the hands of civilians. After discussing similar strategies to lock down the manufacture, purchase, sale, and transfer of polymer weapons and modular weapons, the next item on the agenda warrants an immediate withdrawal of the United States from the world body. Paragraph 33 of the Chair’s Summary of the meeting calls for urgent tracking of civilian-owned firearms, recommending that manufacturers be forced by the UN to install “RFID and biometric technologies in limiting the access to the weapon to authorized users only,” with authorized users defined as state actors (UN member nations). That’s right. As part of the Programme of Action (the foundation upon which the Arms Trade Treaty is built — a treaty nearly half of the U.S. Senate supports), the United States has committed to passing legislation that will require domestic firearms and ammunition manufacturers to equip their products with RFID chips and biometric technologies that will help the government slowly but surely disarm civilians. That’s not all. At the end of that paragraph, the UN suggests governments look into combining RFID chips, biometrics, with GPS tracking technologies to be sure to prevent regular people from getting their hands on guns. So, at this week's meeting, the UN will not only set out the schedule of domestic gun regulations, but it will instruct third-world regimes where to look for the money to help pay for the implementation of these new disarmament policies: increased foreign aid from the United States. Specifically, the unelected, unaccountable UN globocrats call for greater “international cooperation and assistance” (read: American taxpayer dollars) to offset the massive cost of the “transfer of technology and knowledge” necessary to make the proposed gun grab a reality. It should be noted that Paragraph 42 of the summary proposes funding this fascism “through the UN regular budget,” 22 percent of which is paid by the United States, through a process that can be described as nothing less than legalized theft of the wealth of the American worker. Next, the document calls for the cultivating of a “culture of peace,” which is certainly shorthand for flooding the United States with UN-created propaganda linking the civilian ownership of firearms with homicide and other violent crimes. Given the fact that both major party presidential candidates endorse some level of federal restriction on the right to keep and bear arms, it doesn’t take too much foresight to predict a panoply of renewed calls for controlling and regulating civilian access to firearms. Additionally, according to the text of the Chair's Summary that will serve as the to-do list for the world's international cadre of gun confiscators, the POA will serve as an “international instrument to enable states to identify and trace, in a timely and reliable manner,” the small arms and light weapons that are the subject of the scheme. In practice, this means that the governments of member nations (including the United States) will soon create a massive, all-inclusive database of all parties that manufacture, own, sell, trade, or transfer arms and ammunition. If recent history is a reliable indicator of how such data would be used, after the catalog is complete, Congress could pass a law (or the president could issue an executive order) compelling “voluntary” surrender of privately-owned weapons, ammo, parts, and components (including reloading equipment). If, after a statutorily-set window, citizens don’t turn in these items to their local law enforcement, then officers will be sent to remind violators of their responsibility under the law to disarm. How will this worldwide tracking of weapons, ammo, and component parts be carried out? Paragraph 32 of the Chair’s Summary lays out the plan for “real-time tracking” of firearms and ammunition “from manufacturer to storage and from storage up to the individual users.” Once the governments of the member nations begin tracking and confiscating weapons from civilians, the Programme of Action (paragraphs 30 and 31) mandates that member governments take “direct control over transfers of small arms and light weapons.” This control will require the federal government to begin stockpiling these items and making a database of the recently impounded guns, bullets, 3D printers, plastics, polymers, and component parts. This database must include "the marking, record-keeping and tracing of weapons, and in this regard considered barcodes, radio frequency identification (RFID) and biometrics for purposes of electronically identifying stored items, collecting data on them and enabling the data to be entered automatically into record-keeping systems." It is evident from a reading of this latest UN disarmament publication that despite the rhetoric related to ”promotion of a culture of peace,” there are only two reasons the UN is making every effort to disarm the population of the United States: to weaken our sovereignty, and to take from our people their ability to resist those despots (at home and abroad) who would place us under the boot of tyranny and demote us to the ranks of slaves on a “sustainable” global plantation. Finally, the upcoming confiscation confab will demand member states confirm their commitment to achieving the climate and sustainability goals set out in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which was adopted in September 2015. The startling complexity and comprehensiveness of these goals were examined by The New American's Alex Newman in an article published earlier this year. Newman writes: Perhaps the single most striking feature of Agenda 2030 is the practically undisguised roadmap to global socialism and corporatism/fascism, as countless analysts have pointed out. To begin with, consider the agenda’s Goal 10, which calls on the UN, national governments, and every person on Earth to “reduce inequality within and among countries.” To do that, the agreement continues, will “only be possible if wealth is shared and income inequality is addressed.” Americans committed to preserving their natural right to protect their liberty from those who would threaten it through the implementation of international agreements requiring the de facto repeal of the Second Amendment are encouraged to stand together in this urgent fight for freedom. There is no organization better positioned to prepare Americans with the resources necessary to defeat the forces of disarmament in the UN and in our own government than The John Birch Society (JBS). For more than five decades, the JBS has worked to “Get U.S. out of the UN." The strength that results from this unmatched record of results makes the JBS uniquely able to increase the awareness of the American people for the fight to retain the right to keep and bear arms.

Human-pig hybrids for organ transplants could develop into monsters with 'OUR brains'

SCIENTISTS trying to grow our body parts inside pigs to end the shortage of organs needed for transplants could inadvertently make animals with human brains, it has emerged.

By Jon Austin PUBLISHED: 09:16, Mon, Jun 6, 2016 | UPDATED: 18:00, Mon, Jun 6, 2016

It was revealed today that in a futuristic Dr Frankenstein-like experiment, scientisist in the US have injected human stem cells into pig embryos to produce human-pig embryos known as chimeras. But, concern has already surfaced that playing God in this way could open the door to pig's developing with human intelligence and too much like us. There are fears that mixing pig and human genes in this way coud see the animals develop looking like animals but with human brains or boosted intelligence. The research is so controversial that last year, the main US medical research agency, the National Institutes of Health, imposed a moratorium on funding such experiments. Its main concern is that the human cells might migrate to the developing pig's brain and make it, in some way, more human. Pablo Ross, a reproductive biologist who is leading the research, said this is unlikely but is a key reason why the research is proceeding with such caution. He said: "We think there is very low potential for a human brain to grow, but this is something we will be investigating." Mr Ross, whose team is from University of California, Davis, says the hybrids should look and behave like normal pigs except that one organ will be composed of human cells. But, amid concerns that the human-pig chimeric embryos could develop too much like us, the inch-long embryoes are only being allowed to develop inside the sows for 28 days before the pregnancies are terminated and the tissue removed for analysis. In Greek mythology, chimeras were fire-breathing monsters composed of several animals - part lion, goat and snake. Other teams in the United States have created human-pig chimeric embryos but none has allowed the foetuses to be born, because of the fears of the hybrid creation. Walter Low, professor in the department of neurosurgery, University of Minnesota, said pigs were an ideal "biological incubator" for growing human organs, and could potentially be used to create not just a pancreas but hearts, livers, kidneys, lungs and corneas. He said if the iPS cells were taken from a patient needing a transplant then these could be injected in a pig embryo which had the key genes deleted for creating the required organ, such as the liver. He said: "The organ would be an exact genetic copy of your liver but a much younger and healthier version and you would not need to take immunosuppressive drugs which carry side-effects." Alarmingly, his team is also trying to create dopamine-producing human neurons from chimeric embryos to treat patients with Parkinson's disease. These embryos have been allowed to develop for up to 62 days - the normal gestation period is around 114 days. Like the team in California, Prof Low said they were monitoring the effects on the pig brain: He said: "With every organ we will look at what's happening in the brain and if we find that it's too human like, then we won't let those foetuses be born". The BBC's medical correspondent Fergus Walsh was given exclusive access to the research for Panorama - Medicine's Big Breakthrough: Editing Your Genesto be shown tonight at 8.30pm on BBC One. Creating the chimeric embryos takes two stages. First, a technique known as CRISPR gene editing is used to remove DNA from a newly fertilised pig embryo that would enable the resulting foetus to grow a pancreas. This creates a genetic "niche" or void. Then, human induced pluripotent (iPS) stem cells are injected into the embryo. The iPS cells were derived from adult cells and "dialled back" to become stem cells capable of developing into any tissue in the body. The team at UC Davis hopes the human stem cells will take advantage of the genetic niche in the pig embryo and the resulting foetus will grow a human pancreas. Mr Ross said: "Our hope is that this pig embryo will develop normally but the pancreas will be made almost exclusively out of human cells and could be compatible with a patient for transplantation." In the mid-90s there were hopes that genetically modified pigs might provide an endless supply of organs for patients, and that cross-species transplants were not far off. But clinical trials stalled because of fears that humans might be infected with animal viruses. Organisations campaigning for an end to factory farming are also dismayed at the thought of organ farms. Peter Stevenson, from Compassion in World Farming, told Panorama: "I'm nervous about opening up a new source of animal suffering. "Let's first get many more people to donate organs. If there is still a shortage after that, we can consider using pigs, but on the basis that we eat less meat so that there is no overall increase in the number of pigs being used for human purposes."

THE COMING CASHLESS SOCIETY: BIG BROTHER & THE MARK OF THE BEAST

By Paul McGuire June 6, 2016 NewsWithViews.com

Sweden is the first nation in the world to embrace a cashless society, where according to the central bank, Riksbank, cash transactions made up only 2% of the value of all payments last year. Swedish economists believe that by 2020 cash transactions will be only 0.5%. Various apps like Swish and the Danish app, MobilePay, are being used to make purchases from various street vendor sales and even to give church donations. According a Guardian article, “Sweden leads race to become cashless society,” by Jon Henley dated June 4, 2016, “Swedes are blazing the trail in Europe, with banks, buses, street vendors and even churches expecting plastic or virtual payment.” Promoters of a cashless society point out that there are countless benefits, such as control, tracking, and identification of criminals, along with the ability to block deposits, purchases, and withdrawals. In 2014, Cass Sunstein, the “regulatory czar,” former head of the office of Information and Regulatory Affair (OIRA), promoted the idea that a cashless society would reduce street crime. Sunstein believed that there was a relationship between (EBT) Electronic Benefit Transfer system for welfare benefits and a drop in crime. Although there has been no proof that Sunstein’s theory is true, in the spring of 2014, the Department of Justice came under fire for “Operation Choke Point,” which was designed to shut down payday lenders and other merchant activities that were labeled “high-risk.” Sunstein appears to believe that society should be run by something resembling Plato’s Philosopher King System, controlled by “elites” such as himself. In effect, our world already is ruled by a class of wealthy and powerful people who view themselves as the philosopher or god-kings described by the Greek Philosopher Plato, who had studied the legendary super-civilization of Atlantis. I outline the historical progression of this in A Prophecy of the Future of America 2016-2017. Although Sunstein would not call himself a Marxist, his ideological beliefs are totalitarian in nature, such as the belief that people should be prevented from being exposed to different belief systems on the Internet. So it is no wonder that Cass Sunstein wrote an op-ed advocating a cashless society. According to an article written in the Atlantic magazine on April 8, 2016, “How a Cashless Society Could Embolden Big Brother,” by Sarah Jeong, a bare list of bullet points put out by the FDIC include some of the following merchant categories associated with high-risk activity. “Ammunition sales, Dating Services, Get Rich Products, Government Grants, Life-Time Memberships, Pharmaceutical Sales, Pornography, Pyramid-Type Sales, Surveillance Equipment, Travel Clubs, etc. One major bank shut down the personal accounts of hundreds of “adult entertainers,” which caused them to lose access to medical treatment, food and rent money. Sarah Jeong wrote, “A cashless society promises a world of limitation, control, and surveillance, which the poorest American already have in abundance.” According to Jeong, EBT and the cashless society targets the most vulnerable people in our society. Interestingly, one of the most widely read books in human history, the Book Of Revelation, deals specifically with a global cashless society where no individual can buy or sell without receiving what is called “the mark of the beast,” which appears to predict some kind of microchip implant with a computer-brain interface. This “mark of the beast” technology will only be distributed to individuals who have the required religious and political beliefs, making it an all-powerful global control system. Despite the intellectual bias against the Book of Revelation even being looked at, the reality is that it brings up the themes of a cashless society and some kind of microchip over 2,000 years ago. The other thing that is interesting is that in order to receive this chip and participate in the economic system and be able to buy or sell, you must have specific beliefs. The specific condition is that you must choose to worship the charismatic world leader the Bible calls the Antichrist. No matter what your previous religious beliefs were, you must renounce them and declare your worship of the Antichrist as God. This appears to specifically target Christians, in that they must renounce their belief in Jesus Christ as Lord and openly state that they will worship the Antichrist.

Netanyahu heads to Russia as ties with Moscow strengthen

Israeli PM heads to Kremlin for fourth meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin; extended trip to last for 2 and a half days.

By Ari Soffer First Publish: 6/6/2016, 8:04 AM

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu headed to Moscow this morning, for his third visit to the Kremlin in nine months, as Israel-Russia ties continues to burgeon. The meeting is the fourth one between Netanyahu and Russia President Vladimir Putin during the same period, after the pair also met at the sidelines of the recent UN climate change conference in Paris. Israeli President Reuven Rivlin has also met with Putin during that time, even canceling a trip to Australia to visit the Russian leader at the Kremlin. In an illustration of the growing alliance between their two countries, this time Netanyahu is scheduled to stay in Russia for an extended trip of two and a half days, meeting other leading Russian officials as well as the Russian President. The official pretext for this visit is to mark 25 years of official diplomatic relations between Israel and Russia. Until then, Israel's relationship with what was then the Soviet Union had been hostile one, with Moscow backing Israel's Arab enemies and declaring itself opposed to Zionism. Today, however, things are very different. Official explanations aside, the two leaders will be engaging on a range of issues of mutual interest and potential cooperation, most notably the ongoing bloody civil war in Syria. Russia, which supports Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, has been heavily engaged in Syria on the side of the regime. While Israel considers the Assad regime - a close ally of Iran - an enemy, and is still technically at war with it, Jerusalem and Moscow have seen their interests in Syria converge as of late. Last year, Netanyahu and Putin reached a landmark agreement to coordinate all Israeli and Russian forces in and over the skies of Israel's northern neighbor. Israel, concerned over the growing Iranian presence in Syria, has operated extensively to thwart the transfers of sophisticated weaponry and radar equipment to Hezbollah, which is also fighting on behalf of the Syrian regime. The Israeli air force has also assassinated several leading Hezbollah terrorists based in Syria, who were plotting attacks against Israeli targets. While Russia is working to secure its own strategic interests in Syria - most crucially by preserving its naval and other military bases in western Syria - the Kremlin has made it clear it has no interest in facilitating attacks against Israel, and has allowed Israeli aircraft free movement over the skies of Syria. In return, among other things, Israel has committed to alerting Russia of impending airstrikes to ensure no Russian casualties, and has allowed Russian aircraft to cross into Israeli airspace when operationally necessary for its operations in southern Syria. In a symbolic illustration of the growing alliance, last week Putin signed an executive order to hand over an Israeli tank seized by pro-Soviet Arab forces in Syria during the First Lebanon War. But while previous - far more speedy - visits by Netanyahu have focused purely on the Syrian crisis, this extended trip is expected to also deal with a range of other issues, according to sources close to the PM. Among other things, the pair will discuss the battle against global Islamic terrorism, as well as the diplomatic process with the Palestinian Authority. Both topics come at a particularly important time. Russia - which is in Syria ostensibly to fight jihadist terrorists - is also a backer of Iran, the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism, and Israeli leaders hope they can persuade the Russians to use their leverage with Iran to curb Tehran's increasingly aggressive designs in the region. On the diplomatic front, Netanyahu will look to Russia as a way to offset a hostile White House's recent veiled threats to not use its veto in the Security Council, as well as increased pressure from Europe to impose a two-state solution over the heads of the Israeli government. The growing Israeli-Russian alliance also illustrates Moscow's rising influence in the Middle East, as US President Barack Obama has pulled back America's presence and influence in the region considerably.

Around the year 2005, a sudden spark will catalyze a Crisis mood. Remnants of the old social order will disintegrate. Political and economic trust will implode. Real hardship will beset the land, with severe distress that could involve questions of class, race, nation and empire. The very survival of the nation will feel at stake. Sometime before the year 2025, America will pass through a great gate in history, commensurate with the American Revolution, Civil War, and twin emergencies of the Great Depression and World War II.” – Strauss & Howe – The Fourth Turning The chart below was posted by Jesse a few weeks ago. It accompanied a post titled Gathering Storm. He doesn’t specifically refer to the chart, but his words reflect the ominous view of the future depicted in the chart. “When gold and silver finally are able, through price action, to have their say about the state of Western fiscal and monetary policy actions, it may break a few ear drums and shatter a more than a few illusions about the wisdom and honesty of the money masters. Slowly, but surely, a reckoning is coming. And what has been hidden will be revealed.” The title of the post and the chart both grabbed my attention and provide a glimpse into the reality of our present situation. The Gathering Storm was the title of Winston Churchill’s volume one history of World War II. Churchill documents the tumultuous twenty years leading up to World War II in The Gathering Storm. The years following World War I, through the Great Depression and the rise of Hitler were abysmal, but only a prelude to the approaching horror of 65 million deaths over the next six years. What appeared to be dark days in the 1930’s were only storm clouds gathering before a once in a lifetime tempest. In my view we stand at an equally perilous point in history today. The graph represents the standard progress of a three act drama in literature. In the three-act structure, act one has the least tension, since it is only establishing the characters and the settings. The catalyst triggers an increase in tension with the revelation dramatically escalating the pressure as you approach the climax. The intensity remains high in act three as the final confrontation and resolution play out. Every Shakespearean tragedy follows this general pathway to a final denouement. It peculiarly parallels the path of a Fourth Turning. A Fourth Turning’s three acts are the catalyst phase, regeneracy stage, and climax. The plot of this Fourth Turning crisis revolves around the core elements of debt, civic decay and global disorder. The 2008 global financial crisis, manufactured by the Fed and their Wall Street puppeteers, was catalyzed by hundreds of billions in bad debt issued as part of the largest control fraud scheme in world history. The brunt of this banker formulated disaster has been borne by the former working middle class and senior citizens dependent upon interest income to survive in an inflationary world. The initial threat of full-fledged collapse was deferred through extreme monetary and fiscal actions by the establishment vassals, as they created trillions in new debt to fill the vortex produced by the trillions in bad debt. We are only in the early stages of Act 2 of this tragedy we call The Fall of the American Empire. The tension triggered in 2008/2009 by the Federal Reserve/Wall Street created subprime debacle subsided, as the ruling class was able to expand their wealth (rigging the financial markets), while crushing dissent (OWS, Tea Party), expanding their surveillance state (as revealed by Snowden), waging undeclared wars around the globe (Syria, Libya, Iraq, Yemen), adding $10 trillion to the national debt, while distracting the masses through propaganda, electronic bread and circuses, and trivial societal diversions. While the public is busy arguing about gay marriage, wedding cakes, transgender bathrooms, safe spaces, triggers, SJWs, Bruce Jenner becoming Caitlyn Jenner, and apes rights, the ruling class pillages the remaining wealth of the nation and forges ahead with their plans to control our lives. Despite knowing a Fourth Turning generally ebbs and flows over a two decade time frame, it can be frustrating watching the corrupt crony capitalist pigs running this shitshow continue to flagrantly disregard the rule of law, the Constitution, and abusing the citizens of this country. But the temporary lull in intensity is coming to an end. We are now eight years into this Fourth Turning with at least a decade to go before the climax. The regeneracy has been slow in coming, but it appears the mood of the country has been catalyzed by the anti-establishment campaigns of Trump and Sanders. They have begun the process of regeneracy against the ingrained, corrupt, immoral establishment. The people are collectively revolting against the existing social order as they are finally realizing they have been used and abused by the ruling oligarchy as pawns in their game of world domination. The obscene wealth of the .1% has been absconded from the working class through abuse of the tax laws, trade deals, regulations, monetary policy, public school indoctrination, peddling of debt to the masses, and relentless propaganda. The systematic manipulation of the financial, monetary, political and commercial markets by the money masters has left the country like a mighty diseased, hollowed out, rotting oak tree – one storm away from collapsing and splintering into a thousand pieces. A gathering storm approaches. The mood of the country has turned dark. The political parties are splintering. The elites in NYC, DC, and LA are appalled the peasants in flyover country are not following orders and voting for the hand-picked lackey candidates. If Clinton can avoid indictment, she’ll represent the establishment versus the anti-establishment Trump in the upcoming election. The establishment is using the power of the press to try and discredit Trump and Sanders. It’s failing. The mainstream media is now trusted and respected on par with Congress – lower than whale shit. The establishment is now resorting to paying thugs to violently disrupt Trump campaign events. This ploy is backfiring, as the white silent majority gravitates toward Trump every time an illegal immigrant burns an American flag or a young woman is assaulted by Black Thugs Matter paid rioters. With the economy in freefall, rigged financial markets immensely overvalued, debt levels at extremes, global tensions rising, and an increasingly angry American populace desperate for change, it appears the stars are aligning for a Trump presidency. He is a flawed human being, with a huge ego, no filter, and no experience governing. But none of that matters. He has captured the zeitgeist of this moment in history. At this juncture in a Fourth Turning the public is ready to dump leaders who have downplayed the vast problems facing the country (unfunded liabilities, illegal immigration, entitlements, debt, wars, jobs, bankers) in favor of leaders who are willing to amplify and tackle those problems head on. A new civic ethos of addressing and responding to threats is taking hold. The generational configuration is aligned and the mood of the country is ripe for a prophet generation Boomer, like Trump, to be the Grey Champion who will lead the country through the darkest most perilous portion of this Fourth Turning. As this Fourth Turning careens towards its climax, the intensity will escalate. Bold decisions will need to be made requiring a leader who displays tremendous confidence and strong leadership. Political correctness will be cast aside. The previous two Grey Champion leaders – Lincoln and Roosevelt – are despised on many levels by many people, as they both ignored the Constitution on many occasions while attempting to do what they thought best in leading the country through desperate times. Their policies and executive actions during those dark days of the Civil War, Great Depression, and World War II left a long lasting impact on the country and play a major role in our current crisis. As Strauss and Howe predicted almost 20 years ago, the regeneracy is solidly under way. “Soon after the catalyst, a national election will produce a sweeping political realignment, as one faction or coalition capitalizes on a new public demand for decisive action. Republicans, Democrats, or perhaps a new party will decisively win the long partisan tug of war. This new regime will enthrone itself for the duration of the Crisis. Regardless of its ideology, that new leadership will assert public authority and demand private sacrifice. Where leaders had once been inclined to alleviate societal pressures, they will now aggravate them to command the nation’s attention. The regeneracy will be solidly under way.” – Strauss & Howe – The Fourth Turning It is difficult for the vast majority of people to comprehend the likely chaos, pain, bloodshed and war which will overspread the nation and the world during the final two acts of this tragic play. The discomfort most people are feeling is just their cognitive dissonance telling them everything will be fine as they experience a steady decline in their standard of living. Harkening back to Jesse’s original chart, the Fourth Turning regeneracy is aligning with the Revelation in Act 2. The day of reckoning will arrive when Trump is elected and that which has been hidden is revealed. Anyone who doesn’t grasp the increasing intensity of the rhetoric, opponent interactions, and media responses will be blind-sided by the coming storm. The days of delusion, denial and debt are going to revert to dismay, depression and death. There is no more room to increase leverage. Americans are up to their eyeballs in mortgage, credit card, auto loan, and student loan debt ($17.4 trillion). Corporations are stuffed with record levels of debt ($14 trillion) they used to buy back their stock at all-time high prices. State and local governments are drowning in trillions of debt and unfunded pension liabilities. The Federal government is $19.3 trillion in debt, with unfunded entitlement liabilities exceeding $200 trillion. It is mathematically impossible for this debt to be repaid with a rapidly aging developed world and a debt saturated developing world. With financial markets as overvalued as they have ever been, the next crash will leave all the heavily indebted parties with no assets to repay the debt. The losses will make the 2008 financial crisis look like a stroll in the park. And the Fed shot their load years ago, without having the guts to reload. Their credibility is shot and their $4 trillion balance sheet is insolvent. The Wall Street banks are zombies sustained by 0% interest rates and accounting fraud. I know the last few years have been frustrating for the “doom and gloomers” who actually have critical thinking skills and understand the nature of our dire economic situation. Much like Michael Burry, as described so well by Michael Lewis in The Big Short, your facts may be 100% correct but markets and people can remain irrational for longer than you think possible. By having the courage of your convictions, you must be prepared for scorn, ridicule, and mocking. As the unpayable debt has expanded to ever greater heights and monetary authorities across the globe implement wildly desperate measure like negative interest rates and buying financial assets to prop up stock markets, the public has become more unquestioning of reality and deluded by the seeming stability of financial markets. Record low interest rates and rising stock prices reinforce the normalcy bias of most people. Many smart, normally skeptical, people have thrown in the towel. Because the gathering storm has not struck as predicted, they begin to believe it will never strike. This same mindset existed in 1860, 1929, 1940, 1999, and 2007. It easy to be lulled to sleep by the propaganda media machines, lying politicians, and extreme monetary schemes portrayed as normal by the money men. Things are not getting better. We are not at the end of this crisis. We are in the midst of a Greater Depression, with the most trying times still ahead. Fourth Turnings never de-intensify. They intensify into a chaotic whirlwind, where the future of our civilization hangs in the balance. The climax of this play is a long way off. The election of Trump in November will trigger the transformational change that always happens during a Fourth Turning. An ill wind is beginning to blow. You can’t avoid the coming storm, but you can mentally and physically prepare. Our choices will make a difference.

Obama: Manufacturing Jobs Outsourced To Mexico Aren’t Coming Back

by Charlie Spiering2 Jun 2016670

President Barack Obama is giving up on some of the American manufacturing jobs that went to Mexico, telling an Indiana resident that many of those jobs are not coming back. During a town hall in Elkhart, Indiana, Obama was asked a question about manufacturing by a man who was once employed by Carrier Corporation in Indiana before the plant announced plans to move to Mexico. “What we have to do is to make sure that folks are trained for the jobs that are coming in now because some of those jobs of the past are just not going to come back,” Obama said bluntly during the event broadcast on PBS. Carrier announced in February that it would move 1,400 jobs to Mexico — even after receiving $5.1 million from the Obama administration in clean energy tax credits. Carrier later clarified in a statement that it will not claim the federal tax credit. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has cited Carrier specifically on the campaign trail, saying it’s one more sign of American decline. “I wanna do the number on Carrier, folks. I don’t like what they did,” Trump said in April, vowing to bring the jobs back. But Obama was skeptical that Trump could fulfill his promise. “There’s no answer to it. He just says, ‘Well, I’m going to negotiate a better deal.’ Well, how exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have?” Obama asked. “And usually, the answer is he doesn’t have an answer.” Obama insisted that the “good old days” of manufacturing were over, thanks to technology. “The days when you just being willing to work hard and you can now walk into a plant and suddenly there’s going to be a job for you for 30 years or 40 years, that’s just not going to be there for our kids,” Obama said. He blamed technology and automation for the decreasing level of manufacturing jobs, suggesting that free community college would help students learn the skills necessary to compete for high tech jobs. “[Y]ou cannot look backwards, and that doesn’t make folks feel good sometimes, especially if it’s a town that was reliant on a couple of big manufacturers,” he said. “But they’re going to have to retrain for the jobs of the future, not the jobs of the past.”

Is It Already Too Late? If EMP Holocaust Of Mass Starvation And Societal Collapse Is Avoided, We Can Thank This True American Hero

Roscoe Bartlett - The 'Paul Revere' Of EMP Turns 90

Submitted to All News Pipeline by Dr. Peter Vincent Pry. Dr. Pry is Executive Director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security and Director of the U.S. Nuclear Strategy Forum, both Congressional Advisory Boards, and served on the Congressional EMP Commission, the Congressional Strategic Posture Commission, and the House Armed Services Committee. Few Americans have heard of Roscoe Bartlett--but all Americans may someday owe him their lives. The former congressman from Maryland's 6th District, who on June 3rd celebrated his 90th birthday, is the modern Paul Revere of electromagnetic pulse (EMP). It is a safe bet that most or all readers of Family Security Matters and All News Pipeline now know about the EMP threat. Indeed, more Americans may know about EMP than about Paul Revere, a situation Roscoe would certainly disapprove! Roscoe Bartlett took EMP out of the classified shadows. There its potentially paralyzing effects on military forces and civilian critical infrastructures were deeply understood only by a small number of nuclear strategists and specialists. The American people now know about the existential threat that is EMP because of Roscoe Bartlett. In 1995, then Representative Roscoe Bartlett--one of the few scientists and inventors to hold a seat in Congress--launched a one man crusade to educate policymakers and the public about the grave danger to our civilization from a nuclear EMP attack that might come from terrorists, rogue states, China or Russia. The spark was the still little known nuclear missile crisis of January 25, 1995. During the most perilous 20 minutes of the nuclear missile age, the Russian General Staff mistook a high-altitude Norwegian meteorological rocket for an incoming EMP attack. They activated then Russian President Boris Yeltsin's "red button" for making a nuclear strike. Fortunately, Yeltsin literally refused to "push the button" and bravely waited. The missile reached apogee without an EMP detonation. The crisis passed. In the aftermath of the crisis, Roscoe wondered, if a single nuclear weapon used to make an EMP attack could have such catastrophic consequences, so frightening to the Russians, could terrorists or rogue states make an EMP attack? Do Russia and China have plans for EMP attack against the United States? And are we prepared? Congressman Roscoe Bartlett held the first unclassified hearing before Congress and the public on EMP effects, and on the capabilities of potential adversaries. Over the next five years, Roscoe convened numerous unclassified and classified briefings and hearings on EMP before the House Armed Services Committee and other bodies of the Congress. Roscoe arranged a congressional hearing unique in history at Aberdeen. The capabilities of two non-nuclear EMP weapons were demonstrated to Congress and the people at the U.S. Army Proving Ground at Aberdeen. The weapons were an experiment, designed and built by civilian electricians, using parts available from Radio Shack, to showcase what terrorists could do. At Aberdeen, the successful tests were performed in a special chamber designed to contain EMP, to protect passing airliners. The circle of knowledge and concern about EMP grew rapidly, due to Congressman Bartlett's leadership. But President Bill Clinton's Department of Defense and other administration spokesman dismissed the EMP threat. They argued the Cold War is over, so we don't need to worry about EMP attack from Russia or China any more. Terrorists and rogue states are not sophisticated enough to understand EMP, or so Congress was told. Consequently, because the Cold War was over, the Clinton Administration was dismantling EMP simulators, no longer EMP hardening U.S. military forces, and using commercial off-the-shelf technologies very vulnerable to EMP. In May 1999, Roscoe went to Vienna with a bipartisan Congressional Delegation to meet with leaders of the Russian Duma to explore ending the Balkans War. NATO was bombing Serbia, a Russian ally. On day one of the meeting, the Russian Duma made a thinly veiled threat to end the Balkans War by making a nuclear EMP strike on the United States. Thus, Moscow discredited the Clinton Administration's claim that the U.S. doesn't have to worry about EMP. In 2001, Rep. Bartlett established the Congressional EMP Commission with unanimous bipartisan support. The EMP Commission found that Iran--the world's leading sponsor of international terrorism--openly writes about destroying the United States with a nuclear EMP attack and has practiced such an attack in missile tests and exercises. Russia, China, and North Korea all have the capability and plans to make an EMP attack on the United States. The Commission also warned that Mother Nature can inflict an EMP catastrophe by a solar super-storm, like the 1859 Carrington Event. In 1995, many belittled Roscoe Bartlett for sounding the alarm about EMP. Today the nation is galvanized into action trying to protect itself from an EMP catastrophe:

--President Obama has launched a "National Space Weather Action Plan" to protect the electric grid and other critical infrastructures from natural EMP generated by a solar super-storm.

--Obama's Department of Defense is further hardening the North American Aerospace Defense (NORAD) alternate headquarters inside Cheyenne Mountain, and hardening many DOD assets, against EMP attack from North Korea and others.

--The Critical Infrastructure Protection Act (CIPA), which would require the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to plan for protecting and recovering the nation from a natural or manmade EMP catastrophe, is on the verge of passage through the Senate.

--DHS is not waiting for passage of CIPA, but is partnering with the Department of Energy and the electric power industry to plan for protecting the grid from nuclear EMP attack.

--The States are not waiting for Washington. So far, Maine, Virginia, Arizona, Florida, and Texas have launched initiatives to protect their peoples from EMP. --Congress has re-established the EMP Commission to help federal and state governments. Two North Korean satellites already orbit over the United States on the optimum trajectories to evade U.S. National Missile Defenses and make a surprise EMP attack. NASA estimates the likelihood of a natural EMP catastrophe from a solar super-storm, encompassing the whole world, to be 12 percent per decade. Anyone can buy portable non-nuclear EMP devices that criminals or terrorists could use, with a little knowledge of the grid, to cause a protracted nationwide blackout. Will efforts to protect the nation from an EMP holocaust of mass starvation and societal collapse be in time? Will our efforts be enough? Only God knows. But God sent us Roscoe Bartlett. While trying to save America, Roscoe has also been a husband to his wife Ellen, father to 10 children, grandfather to 17, great-grandfather to 2, a teacher, a physiologist, and a patented inventor. Happy Birthday Roscoe! And thank you.

The EU Is Finding a Way to Legalize Child Molestation

Sometimes, good things come in small packages, although there is not much good that can come this subject. This article is brief and very much to the point. There is very little offered in contextual background with almost no dots to connect. I view the following as the most important article, and certainly the most disturbing article, I have ever written. Soon, Our Children Will Not Be Safe George Soros contributed $2 million to the North American Man Boy Love Association. They are actively advocating for sex with children. Their byline is “Sex before eight or it is too late”. Please tell me how a seven year old can consent to having sex with an adult? For years, I have been claiming that the criminal elite will eventually remove the final taboo, the final prohibition from society, namely, adults having sex with children. With the advent of the transgender restroom issue, I renewed my claim that the globalists were bootstrapping the laws towards eventually removing the final prohibition. The last time I made this claim was about a week ago. Soon, our children will be at risk to unsavory predators, acquiring STD’s and experiencing a lifetime of horrifying psychological scars. At issue in this article is a document that the European Parliament is issuing to its member states. Below, are excerpts of the article. From the European Parliament

A EUROPEAN FRAMEWORK NATIONAL STATUTE FOR THE PROMOTION OF TOLERANCE SUBMITTED WITH A VIEW TO BEING ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURES OF EUROPEAN STATE What originally appears to be a general restriction on free speech against any and all groups is really a lot more when on reads the fine print. Here are the relevant excerpts: Section 1. Definitions For the purposes of this Statute: (a) “Group” means: a number of people joined by racial or cultural roots, ethnic origin or descent, religious affiliation or linguistic links, gender identity or sexual orientation, or any other characteristics of a similar nature. I do not advocate for the discrimination of any of the non-heterosexual groups except for pedophiles and transhumanists and only because they leave victims behind. This is not a movement being promoted by the majority of people in these lifestyles, this is a movement promoted by the globalists. However, make note of the term, sexual orientation, it will figure prominently in the rest of the article. The Dangers of Bootstrapping When the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual -3rd Edition was created in the 1960’s, being labeled “homosexual” also brought a mental illness diagnosis. When the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) -4th Edition was created in the 1990’s being labeled “transgender” also brought a mental illness diagnosis in which the person was labeled as having Gender Identity Disorder. Today, under DSM-V, LGBT people are a legally protected class and special status protections not afforded to heterosexual couples. Please look back at the definition posted earlier. The protected class in this EU document is “sexual orientation”. This term is very broad and very vague given the political climate of the today. At one point in time in our recent past, the only approved sexual orientation was the Biblical definition. Today, each non-heterosexual orientation has been bootstrapped to the next to make it acceptable (e.g. gay to transgender). With transgenders receiving protected status in the US, Canada and Europe, how long will it be till the transgender lifestyle is bootstrapped to the next one in line. And what is the next one in line? That would be abject pedophilia that will soon become a protected class in which it will become a crime to speak out against, much less prosecute for their heinous action. To the novice to our Patriot movement, this may seem like a fantasy. But to those who have around for awhile, you can see all the elements of the globalists at work (e.g. create the protected class, shower the protected class with laws that only protect them, and then through incrementalism, bootstrap the previous to the next step). Again from the EU Parliament document: (d)Public morals. Explanatory Note: Examples: tolerance does not denote acceptance of such practices as female circumcision, forced marriage, polygamy or any form of exploitation or domination of women. (ED. Note: Why doesn’t this document mention protecting children instead of only protecting women?) What About North America? If you still need convincing, please look at what’s happening in North America, it parallels Europe. Bloomberg.com stated that Beyond national laws that criminalize hate speech, there is a need to ensure such activity by Internet users is “expeditiously reviewed by online intermediaries and social media platforms, upon receipt of a valid notification, in an appropriate time-frame,” the companies and the European Commission said in a joint statement on Tuesday. (Ed. Note: The European Commission is the same group that was referenced above). Ed. Note: This is an enforcement document which derives itself from the same document listed above.  Nearly two weeks ago, I wrote the following “The New York City Commission on Human Rights, employees, landlords are demanding that businesses can face stiff fines if they do not Americans and Canadians are in cahoots with the Euros refer to transgenders by using “approved” terms such as “ze” and “hir”. Failure to do so will result in violation of the New York City Human Rights Law. This is the most poorly written administrative law that I have seen. However, it appears that each business must refer to each transgender in the the exact terms that each transgender demands. This is an unreasonable burden on any business. To remain compliant with this unusual and far-reaching demand, a business will have to literally hire and question all people entering a business…. Here is an excerpt from the administrative law: “Intentional or repeated refusal to use an individual’s preferred name, pronoun or title. For example, repeatedly calling a transgender woman “him” or “Mr.” after she has made clear which pronouns and title she uses.” If you are rubbing your eyes in confusion, you are not alone…” “Covered entities may avoid violations of The NYCHRL by creating a policy of asking everyone what their preferred gender pronoun is so that no individual is singled out for such questions and by updating their systems to allow all individuals to self-identify their names and genders. They should not limit the options for identification to male and female only,” states the NYCHRL on gender identity”. THIS WILL LITERALLY CAUSE ALL BUSINESSES TO REVISE THEIR ORDER FORMS. Again, what small business can afford such an onerous demand? Can you imagine every business being forced to ask every customer as they walk through the door if they want to be referred to as “he”, “ze”, and “hir”?Canada is on the verge of passing legislation that makes illegal to criticize transgenders. Here are the relevant parts of this very vague law. Criminal Code 2014, c. 31, s. 12 3 Subsection 318(4) of the Criminal Code is replaced by the following: Definition of identifiable group (4) In this section, identifiable group means any section of the public distinguished by colour, race, religion, national or ethnic origin, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or mental or physical disability. New York, and Canada, this is not just happening in Europe. Conclusion Who is to say that “sexual orientation” will not be extended to pedophiles as there is precedent for this type of bootstrapping? It is the next logical step and we have four decades of bootstrapping various forms of sexual orientation into the next form sexual orientation. Yes, I know this EU document stifles free speech and protects Muslim immigrants coming into Europe, but the incessant reappearance of the term “sexual orientation” is troublesome because in the document, absolutely no criticism is allowed as it is referred to group libel. Each and everyday we move closer to eliminating the final prohibition. The final day of elimination is nearly here.

Obama Slams Door in Putin’s Face: Says if Putin doesn’t want Russia’s retaliatory forces eliminated, he’ll need to be the one to press the nuclear button first

23111 Views June 06, 2016 by Eric Zuesse

Actions speak louder than mere words, and U.S. President Barack Obama has now acted, not only spoken. His action is to refuse to discuss with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Russia’s biggest worry about recent changes in America’s nuclear strategy — particularly a stunning change that is terrifying Putin. On Sunday June 5th, Reuters headlined “Russia Says U.S. Refuses Talks on Missile Defence System”, and reported that, “The United States has refused Russian offers to discuss Washington’s missile defence programme, Russian Deputy Defence Minister Anatoly Antonov was quoted as saying on Sunday, calling the initiative ‘very dangerous’.Russia’s concern is that, if the “Ballistic Missile Defense” or “Anti Ballistic Missile” system, that the United States is now just starting to install on and near Russia’s borders, works, then the United States will be able to launch a surprise nuclear attack against Russia, and this system, which has been in development for decades and is technically called the “Aegis Ashore Missile Defense System”, will annihilate the missiles that Russia launches in retaliation, which will then leave the Russian population with no retaliation at all, except for the nuclear contamination of the entire northern hemisphere, and global nuclear winter, the blowback from America’s onslaught against Russia, which blowback some strategists in the West say would be manageable probems for the U.S. and might be worth the cost of eliminating Russia. That theory, of a winnable nuclear war (which in the U.S. seems to be replacing the prior theory, called “M.A.D.” for Mutually Assured Destruction) was first prominently put forth in 2006 in the prestigious U.S. journal Foreign Affairs, headlining “The Rise of Nuclear Primacy” and which advocated for a much bolder U.S. strategic policy against Russia, based upon what it argued was America’s technological superiority against Russia’s weaponry and a possibly limited time-window in which to take advantage of it before Russia catches up and the opportunity to do so is gone. Paul Craig Roberts was the first reporter in the West to write in a supportive way about Russia’s concerns that Barack Obama might be a follower of that theory. One of Roberts’s early articles on this was issued on 17 June 2014 and headlined “Washington Is Beating The War Drums”, where he observed that “US war doctrine has been changed. US nuclear weapons are no longer restricted to a retaliatory force, but have been elevated to the role of preemptive nuclear attack.” Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has tried many times to raise this issue with President Obama, the most recent such instance being via a public statement of his concern, made on May 27th. Apparently, the public statement by Antonov on June 5th is following up on that latest Putin effort, by Antonov’s announcement there that Obama now explicitly refuses to discuss Putin’s concerns about the matter. The fact that these efforts on the part of the Russian government are via public media instead of via private conversations (such as had been the means used during the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962, when the shoe was on the other foot and the U.S. President was concerned about the Soviet President’s installation of nuclear missiles 90 miles from the U.S. border) suggests that Mr. Obama, unlike U.S. President John Fitzgerald Kennedy in 1962, refuses to communicate with Russia, now that the U.S. is potentially in the position of the aggressor. Russia is making its preparations, just in case it will (because of the Aegis Ashore system) need to be the first to attack. However, some knowledgeable people on the subject say that Russia will never strike first. Perhaps U.S. President Obama is proceeding on the basis of a similar assumption, and this is the reason why he is refusing to discuss the matter with his Russian counterpart. However, if Mr. Obama wishes to avoid a nuclear confrontation, then refusing even to discuss the opponent’s concerns would not be the way to go about doing that. Obama is therefore sending signals to the contrary — that he is preparing a nuclear attack against Russia — simply by his refusal to discuss the matter. In this case, his action of refusal is, itself, an answer to Putin’s question, like slamming the door in Putin’s face would be. It’s a behavioral answer, instead of a merely verbal one. The geostrategist John Helmer discussed on May 30th the question of when the “Trigger Point” will likely be for Putin to decide whether there is no reasonable alternative but to launch — and for him then to launch — World War III.

Anchors Away -- Obama Sinks U.S. Navy

By Daniel John Sobieski

As China builds military bases on man-made islands in the South China Sea, the staggering decline in U.S. naval readiness was made clear when a group of Navy captains testified before an unusual joint hearing of the House Armed Services Committee’s sea power and readiness subcommittees last week. It was made clear that President Ronald Reagan’s 600-ship Navy is a distant memory as we return to the Jimmy Carter era of ships that can’t sail and planes that can’t fly for want of spare parts. This sad state of affairs is accomplishing what the Japanese Imperial Navy could not -- defeat the U.S. Navy and leave the seas increasingly open to hostile adversaries and leaving us increasingly unable to come to the aid of our remaining allies. As the Navy captains testified: “About every three months or so we would get a new schedule” for the submarine USS Albany, said Capt. Gregory McRae, deputy commander of Submarine Squadron Six. “Today, we are looking at a 43-month overhaul for a maintenance period that was supposed to last 28 months.” “Cannibalization” -- pulling scarce spare parts off one ship or plane to fix another about to deploy -- is now routine, the captains testified. For example, the USS Normandy has served as an organ donor for 13 different “mission critical” components over the last 45 days, crippling the anti-aircraft cruiser‘s radar. “I could not possibly surge right now” for an emergency deployment, testified Normandy skipper Capt. Scott Robertson. Naval air forces are in similar straits. Four of the Navy’s 10 carrier air wings are fully manned and equipped, but those four are the ones either deployed or about to deploy, said Capt. Randy Stearns. Getting one of the other six wings ready to go in an emergency would take six to 12 months, “three times as long” as when he was a young officer, Stearns said: “As of today, we don’t have that surge capacity.” Carrier Air Wing One will not have the funds or parts to fly at all for four months, Stearns testified. That will save $9 million to $13 million in the short run, but they’ll never get those months of training back, said Stearns. In the long term, “it’s going to take me three times the amount and three times the cost to get them back up to speed.” Compounding this crisis is the Budget Control Act, “We’ve never caught up” on the maintenance and training cancelled in 2013, said Capt. Stearns. Last year’s budget deal loosened the BCA caps for fiscal year 2016 but kept them $18 billion tighter for 2017. While it has been the media-accepted talking point of the Obama administration that sequestration was a bipartisan readiness suicide pact forced on it by the Congress, Investor’s Business Daily has pointed out that this myth has been demolished by reporter Bob Woodward of Watergate fame: If President Obama has an enemies list, Bob Woodward is probably at the top of it. After all, it was Woodward who started the unraveling of the president’s “sequestration apocalypse” mantra by confirming it was the White House’s idea in the first place. When President Obama said the “sequester is not something that I proposed,” he lied. His then-OMB Director Jack Lew, recently confirmed as Treasury Secretary, and White House Legislative Affairs Director Rob Nabors pitched the idea to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., who pushed it, according to Woodward’s book, “The Price of Politics.” When Woodward called a senior White House official last week to tell him that, in a piece in that weekend’s Washington Post, he would question President Obama’s account of how sequestration came about, he said the Obama aide “yelled at me for about a half-hour,” ending with the Nixonesque warning, “I think you will regret staking out that claim.” That official was Gene Sperling, a top economic aide. Such willful neglect of the U.S. military by our commander-in-chief had geopolitical consequences. An editorial in the Global Times, a newspaper seen as a mouthpiece for hard-line nationalists in Beijing, warns of the consequences of resistance: “If the United States’ bottom line is that China has to halt these activities, then a U.S. China war is inevitable in the South China Sea.” As Investor’s Business Daily has noted: Beijing has long declared the South China Sea to be its territorial waters and has laid claim to two disputed chains: the Paracel Islands, about 200 miles from the coast of Vietnam, and the Spratly Islands in the southeastern part of the South China Sea. China's territorial ambitions include the Senkakus in the East China Sea, part of what Chinese military doctrine refers to as the "first island chain" that surrounds China. In the South China Sea, as of February, China had finished construction on no less than six different island reefs from which to project its power in the South China Sea. Included in its military effort is the construction of a 3,000 meters (9,842 feet) long runway on the artificially expanded Fiery Cross Reef as a base for Chinese fighter aircraft. According to Reuters, China's creation of artificial islands in the South China Sea is happening so fast that Beijing will be able to extend the range of its navy, air force, coastguard and fishing fleets before long, much to the alarm of rival claimants to the contested waters. Reclamation work is well advanced on six reefs in the Spratly archipelago, according to recently published satellite photographs and Philippine officials. In addition, Manila said this month that Chinese dredgers had started reclaiming a seventh. Naval commanders are worried that our ability to respond to such threats has been severely compromised by an Obama administration more concerned about rising sea levels than rising threats on those seas. The Navy captain’s Congressional testimony come after the Chinese announcement that it is building its second aircraft carrier to go along with a refurbished Soviet carrier, the Liaonng, commissioned by China in 2012 after extensive refitting of the 25-year-old vessel. As IBD has reported, the Liaoning is only the first step in the building of a blue-water navy capable of competing with our diminishing one, with Admiral Samuel J. Locklear III, chief of the U.S. Pacific Command, warning that the U.S. was losing its Pacific dominance to China: China's Communist Party-affiliated newspaper, Global Times, gloated over Locklear's warning, noting his remarks in a story beneath the headline "U.S. losing grip on Pacific: PACOM." In the Times story, Jin Canrong, a deputy dean of the School of International Studies at Renmin University of China, said the American admiral's comments recognize China as a rising military power. Indeed, it is. China has launched its first stealth drone, known as Sharp Sword, and is developing indigenous aircraft carriers. Its "two-ocean strategy" is based on the goal of building a fleet of five or six carrier battle groups. China's first battle group, led by its first carrier, the Liaoning, recently conducted a monthlong exercise that saw the refurbished Soviet-built flattop and her escorts sail south to the waters near Taiwan. During the exercise, a Chinese warship nearly collided with the guided missile cruiser USS Cowpens, which was shadowing the battle group. China is preparing for a naval confrontation with the United States. We may lose that confrontation in the South China Sea because the U.S. Navy is scavenging for spare parts.

Bill, White House staff lived in fear of Hillary: Ex-Secret Service officer

By Emily Smith 6-5-16

Hillary Clinton has a “Jekyll and Hyde” personality that left White House staffers scared stiff of her explosive — and even physical — outbursts, an ex-Secret Service officer claims in a scathing new tell-all. Gary Byrne, who was posted outside the Oval Office when Bill Clinton was president, portrays Hillary as too “erratic, uncontrollable and occasionally violent” to become leader of the free world, according to advance promotional materials exclusively obtained by Page Six. The allegations from Byrne, a 29-year veteran of the military and federal law enforcement, threaten to derail her campaign days before she is expected to clinch the Democratic presidential nomination. He describes Hillary Clinton as acting friendly one moment, then raging the next. “What I saw in the 1990s sickened me,” he writes in the intro of the book, “Crisis of Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses his Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, and How They Operate.” The book claims she repeatedly screamed obscenities at her husband, Secret Service personnel and White House staffers — all of whom lived in terror of her next tirade. Secret Service agents had discussions about the possibility that they would have to protect Bill from his wife’s physical attacks, Byrne writes, and the couple had one “violent encounter” the morning of a key presidential address to the nation. Meanwhile, a paranoid Hillary Clinton tried to have the Secret Service banned from the White House and once tried to ditch her security detail, Byrne says. “Hillary Clinton is now poised to become the Democratic nominee for president of the United States, but she simply lacks the integrity and temperament to serve in the office,” he writes. “From the bottom of my soul I know this to be true. And with Hillary’s latest rise, I realize that her own leadership style — volcanic, impulsive, enabled by sycophants, and disdainful of the rules set for everyone else — hasn’t changed a bit.” The book isn’t set for release until June 28, but pre-orders have sent it to No. 1 on Amazon’s best-seller list. Byrne — who was subpoenaed to testify before the grand jury that investigated Bill Clinton’s affair with intern Monica Lewinsky — claims in the book that he interrupted the president’s sexual shenanigans in the White House. Byrne says he walked into a room where the president was “involved inappropriately with a woman” who was neither his wife nor Lewinsky. And he says he once threw out a White House towel stained with a woman’s lipstick — and the president’s “bodily fluids.” Byrne describes arriving for work one day in 1995 following a loud fight between the Clintons the night before. The dust-up, he says, left a light blue vase “smashed to bits” and Bill sporting a “real, live, put-a-steak-on-it black eye.” Byrne’s book amplifies earlier allegations of mistreatment of Secret Service personnel by Hillary Clinton — including in 2014’s “First Family Detail” by former Washington Post reporter Ronald Kessler and last year’s “The Residence: Inside the Private World of the White House,” which also detailed a fight between Bill and Hillary over the Lewinsky affair. Hillary Clinton’s campaign downplayed Byrne’s book and compared him to Edward Klein, author of last year’s “Unlikeable: The Problem with Hillary.” Play Video “Gary Byrne joins the ranks of Ed Klein and other ‘authors’ in this latest in a long line of books attempting to cash in on the election cycle with their nonsense,” spokesman Nick Merrill said. “It should be put in the fantasy section of the book store.” A spokeswoman for presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump suggested Byrne’s book would be grist for his campaign as prepares to face Clinton in the general election. “The issue of temperament is more a problem for Hillary Clinton,” said the spokeswoman, Katrina Pierson. “I don’t recall Mr. Trump ever screaming at the Secret Service, calling them pigs, throwing vases across the room and clawing the face of his spouse, which Hillary Clinton has been reported to do,” she told CNN.

BY: Ali Meyer June 2, 2016 12:45 pm

Ohio’s In Health Mutual co-op announced last week that it is going out of business, making it the 13th co-op to fail out of the 23 that were created under Obamacare. The Ohio Department of Insurance asked to liquidate the company, saying that the company was in a “hazardous financial condition.” The co-op served nearly 22,000 consumers who now have 60 days to find another policy offered by another company on the federal exchange. “Our examination of the company’s financials made it clear that the company’s losses would prevent it from paying future claims should its operations continue,” said Ohio Director of Insurance Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor. “Under Ohio law, we acted with certainty to protect the consumers.” The company recorded an underwriting loss of $80 million in 2015 despite the $129 million in taxpayer-backed loans granted to the co-op by the federal government. InHealth Mutual was also placed under “enhanced oversight,” one of three tools the Department of Health and Human Services has to monitor co-ops in financial distress. When a co-op is placed under enhanced oversight, it means the company is consistently underperforming and allows the department to give detailed and more frequent reviews of the loan recipient’s operations and financial status. According to Columbus Business First, medical claims were coming in at a rate of $3 million per week and the company would have had to raise premiums by 60 percent in 2017 to keep up. If InHealth Mutual were to stay in business through the end of 2016, projections show that the company would have posted losses of $20 million. Ohio’s failed co-op is added to the list of 12 co-ops that have already failed in Arizona, Michigan, Utah, Kentucky, New York, Nevada, Louisiana, Oregon, Colorado, Tennessee, South Carolina, and a co-op that served both Iowa and Nebraska. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services chief operating officer Mandy Cohen told lawmakers in February that eight of the 11 remaining Obamacare co-ops in operation were selected for “corrective action plans” and “enhanced oversight.” She did not disclose which co-ops were placed on these plans. A professor who specializes in economics and health insurance told lawmakers in March that closures of the remaining co-ops seem likely. “The future of the 11 co-ops still providing coverage in 2016 is uncertain, but future closures seem likely,” said Dr. Scott Harrington. “The 10 co-ops still operating with June 30 financials reported a cumulative loss of $202.3 million.” “Very little, if any, of the $1.24 billion in federal start-up and solvency loans to establish those co-ops will be repaid, and at least several will be unable to meet all of their obligations to policyholders and health care providers,” he said. The Department of Health and Human Services did not respond to requests for comment by press time.

Pensions may be cut to 'virtually nothing' for 407,000 people

by Katie Lobosco @KatieLobosco May 20, 2016: 2:03 PM ET

One of the biggest private pension funds in the country is almost out of money, and fresh out of options. The Central States Pension Fund has no new plan to avoid insolvency, fund director Thomas Nyhan said this week. Without government funding, the fund will run out of money in 10 years, he said. At that time, pension benefits for about 407,000 people could be reduced to "virtually nothing," he told workers and retirees in a letter sent Friday. In a last-ditch effort, the Central States Pension Plan sought government approval to partially reduce the pensions of 115,000 retirees and the future benefits for 155,000 current workers. The proposed cuts were steep, as much as 60% for some, but it wasn't enough. Earlier this month, the Treasury Department rejected the plan because it found that it would not actually head off insolvency. The fund could submit a new plan, but decided this week that there's no other way to successfully save the fund and comply with the law. The cuts needed would be too severe. Related: Treasury rejects pension cuts for 273,000 workers and retirees Normally, when a multi-employer fund like Central States runs out of money, a government insurance fund called the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) kicks in so that retirees still receive some kind of benefit. But that's not a great solution in this case. For one thing, the amount is smaller than what pensioners would have received under the Central States reduction plan, and is based on the number of years a retiree worked. A retiree would receive a maximum $35.75 a month for each year worked, according to the fund's website. (That amounts to $1,072.50 a month for retiree who worked 30 years.) But there's yet another problem. The PBGC itself is underfunded and isn't expected to be able to cover all the retirees in the Central States Pension Fund. "The fact that the ... PBGC is also running out of money means our participants may see their pension benefits ultimately reduced to virtually nothing when the fund runs out of money," Nyhan said in his letter. Only government funding, either to the Central States Fund directly or through the PBGC, can fix the problem, he said. The Central States Pension Fund covers workers and retirees from more than 1,500 companies across a range of industries, but most of its retirees were truck drivers. A lot of the fund's companies went bankrupt after the trucking industry was deregulated in the 1980s. That's part of the reason the fund is in trouble now. It's currently paying out $3 for every $1 it takes in. Related: Is your pension safe? These are the next funds to fail Although the Treasury Department rejected the proposed cuts, Secretary Jack Lew acknowledged that its decision does not resolve the problem. He urged Congress to address the remaining issues. Nyhan is also asking Congress to come up with a solution. But right now there's only one piece of legislation on the table that could help, he said. The bill was introduced by Senator Bernie Sanders last year, but never moved out of committee. It's called the Keep Our Pension Promises Act (KOPPA) and would provide more funding for the PBGC, specifically for struggling multi-employer plans. It would be paid for by closing a loophole in the estate tax and a tax break on sales of expensive art and other collectibles, according to Sanders' website.

Two California beaches forced to close after sightings of eight-foot-long sharks

A two-mile stretch of Orange County shoreline has been closed after several large sharks were spotted on Sunday

A sheriff's helicopter crew spotted sharks off Sunset Beach in Huntington Beach around 2pm

The sharks were estimated to be at least 8 feet long and 150 yards from shore

Fire department said Sunset Beach and the adjoining Surfside Beach in Seal Beach have been shut down until at least Monday morning

By Associated Press and Myriah Towner For Dailymail.com Published: 21:40 EST, 5 June 2016 | Updated: 01:54 EST, 6 June 2016

A two-mile stretch of Orange County shoreline has been closed after several large sharks were spotted. A sheriff's helicopter crew spotted the sharks off Sunset Beach in the city of Huntington Beach on Sunday around 2pm. The sharks were estimated to be at least 8 feet long and 150 yards from shore. A Huntington Beach Police Department helicopter then flew out around 3.30pm to surveillance the area and spotted the three sharks, according to the Orange County Register. 'Because of the size, we closed the water down,' Huntington Beach lifeguard Lt. Claude Panis told the Orange County Reigster. 'Our policy is to close the water down for at least four hours. The beach is open. We made adjustments, posted signs and we cleared the water out.' The Huntington Beach Fire Department said Sunset Beach and the adjoining Surfside Beach in Seal Beach have been shut down until at least Monday morning. Authorities will re-evaluate the waters on Monday morning to determine if they will open the shoreline up. The sighting came a week after a swimmer in a wetsuit was attacked by a shark about 15 miles to the south at Corona Del Mar State Beach on May 30. The woman, 52-year-old Maria Korcsmaros, had a bite from a large shark on her upper body, but she is expected to survive. She was pulled from the Pacific Ocean by lifeguards on a patrol boat on Sunday about 150 yards off the shore of Newport Beach after she was seen in distress. The shark that attacked her was not found. With the increase in great white sightings in the last few years, researchers who have been studying juvenile sharks off Sunset Beach said juveniles have a tendency to leave during the colder months. However, the researchers at Cal State Long Beach's Shark Lab said some have remained in the area as a result of warmer waters due to El Nino.

US unemployed have quit looking for jobs at a 'frightening' level: Survey

Jeff Cox | @JeffCoxCNBCcom Wednesday, 8 Jun 2016 | 10:25 AM ET

Nearly half of unemployed Americans have quit looking for work, and the numbers are even worse for the long-term jobless, according to a poll released Wednesday that paints a grim picture of the labor market. Some 59 percent of those who have been out of work for two years or more say they have stopped looking, the Harris Poll of unemployed Americans showed. Overall, 43 percent of the jobless said they have given up, according to the poll released in conjunction with Express Employment Professionals, a job placement service. "This is a tale of two economies," Express CEO Bob Funk said in a statement. "It's frightening to see this many people who could work say they have given up." The results come just a few days after a government report showed that the unemployment rate fell to 4.7 percent in May, but the drop came primarily because of a sharp decline in the labor force participation rate. The number of people of all ages whom the government considers "not in the labor force" swelled by 664,000 to a record 94.7 million Americans, according to Labor Department data. Job creation, after averaging more than 200,000 for much of the recovery, has slowed considerably this year. May saw just 38,000 new jobs, part of a trend in which payrolls have grown an average of 116,000 over the past three months and less than 150,000 for all of 2016. The greatest concentration of unemployment is in the 18-29 age group, which comprises one-third of all the jobless: Nearly half of unemployed Americans have quit looking for work, and the numbers are even worse for the long-term jobless, according to a poll released Wednesday that paints a grim picture of the labor market.

The unemployed are spending just 11.7 hours a week looking for work. More than half — 51 percent — say they haven't had a job interview since 2014. There's virtually no stand-out preference in the presidential race: 27 percent prefer presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, while 23 percent favor likely Republican standard-bearer Donald Trump. While much has been made over the decline in the labor force participation rate — at 62.6 percent, it is just off its lowest level since late 1977 — some economists think the fear is overdone. They argue that the drop is due in large part to an aging population, among other causes. "Almost all of the decline that we've seen over the last decade or so is due to three factors: retiring baby boomers just leaving the labor force, college students getting more education than ever and disability," Andrew Chamberlain, chief economist at job placement site Glassdoor, said in an interview. "I don't think it's particularly worrisome." There was one optimistic sign in the survey: 22 percent said the reason they are out of work is because they quit, up from 15 percent in 2014, a trend economists generally equate with a more mobile labor force. The Harris/Express poll was conducted from May 5-16 and surveyed 1,513 jobless Americans, and carries a 95 percent confidence level.

Israel Arrests Third Suspect in Tel Aviv Attack

VOA News Last updated on: June 09, 2016 7:48 PM

Israeli security forces have arrested a third suspect in Wednesday's terrorist attack in Tel Aviv that killed four and wounded five. Police captured him Thursday in the West Bank town of Yatta. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the suspect a collaborator with the two Palestinian cousins from Yatta alleged to have opened fire on diners and shoppers at a popular marketplace. Both were in police custody. As promised, Israel reacted strongly to Wednesday's attack, suspending travel permits for 83,000 Palestinians during the holy month of Ramadan. Netanyahu said police placed a quarantine around Yatta and canceled hundreds of work permits for members of the clan to which the suspects belong. The prime minister also said more security steps were planned, but he declined to give details. U.S. State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Thursday that Israel should avoid punishing those who have nothing to do with terrorism. "We certainly respect their [Israel's] desire to express outrage and to protect the safety of their people," Toner said. "But we would only urge any measure that it takes be done with the consideration towards the many innocent Palestinians who are simply trying to go about their daily lives." Toner again said there could never be any justification for terrorism. He said that the U.S. supported Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' statement denouncing attacks on civilians, but that it was deeply troubled by the statement from the militant Palestinian group Hamas celebrating the shootings. Hamas has not officially claimed responsibility for the shootings, but a Hamas official called them a "heroic operation." There were also celebrations in some Palestinian towns after the killings. Netanyahu said, "It only reminds us whom and what we're dealing with." Wednesday's shootings were carried out at the Sarona marketplace in central Tel Aviv, a popular gathering place for shopping and dining. Security footage broadcast on Israeli television showed frantic diners scrambling for safety between tables and overturned chairs as the shooting began. The gunmen, well-dressed in coats and ties, shot some of the victims at point-blank range. Israel has seen a relative lull in nine months of Palestinian attacks on Israeli civilians and police, which were sparked by rumors that Israel was planning to take over an East Jerusalem religious site sacred to Muslims and Jews.

Is Syria's Current Unraveling Tied to Biblical Prophecy?

By Billy Hallowell , Op-Ed Contributor June 9, 2016|7:40 am

Smoke rises after airstrikes on the rebel-held al-Sakhour neighborhood of Aleppo, Syria. April 29, 2016.

Are the biblical end times upon us? And, if so, what can we discern from the scriptures when it comes to the actual events that will comprise the so-called "end of the age?" These are just two of the central questions that I address in my newly released book, The Armageddon Code: One Journalist's Quest for End-Times Answers, as the text includes interviews with around 20 of the most prolific and thoughtful Bible experts about where they stand on a plethora of eschatological issues. The book tackles the oft-times contentious debate over the rapture, the tribulation, the Millennium, the possibility of a future Antichrist, the modern state of Israel and a number of other subjects related to the contemporary study of Bible prophecy. Presented through a journalistic lens, The Armageddon Code takes readers through the ins and outs of the debate, while more specifically offering believers the opportunity to check their own beliefs against experts' claims, and better understand why eschatology is a such a complex and multifaceted subject — one that continues to be hotly debated among Bible scholars. What follows is a sample chapter from the book titled, "Syria's Current Unraveling and Its Tie to Biblical Prophecy." The text focuses on the debate among some scholars over whether the current violence and chaos in Syria could be related to prophetic scriptures in the Books of Isaiah and Jeremiah: Is the world also about to see biblical prophecy come to fruition in Syria? Among others, Joel Rosenberg has questioned whether events inside the war-torn country in recent years are also related to prophecy, especially in light of what's found in Old Testament scriptures like Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49. "We're watching Damascus unravel...is that the prelude to the completion of those prophesies?" he rhetorically asked. "We don't know, but Damascus is the oldest continuously inhabited city on the planet . . . so the fact that it is coming apart is quite extraordinary." Following Russia's air strikes targeting rebels in Syria in October 2015, questions began reemerging in Evangelical circles about whether events surrounding the country's ongoing civil war, which began in 2011, were tied in any way to biblical prophecy. Rosenberg published a blog post in the wake of the air strikes claiming that Russian president Vladimir Putin is "working hand-in- glove with Iran's government" in formulating operations in Syria.3 It came the same week as reports that Iran was waging a ground attack, while Russia was carrying out assaults from the air. Rosenberg, as he did in interviews for this book and past exchanges with The Blaze on this same subject, specifically referenced the Old Testament in addressing the matter, invoking many of the themes that we dissected in previous chapters. "The Hebrew prophet Ezekiel wrote 2,500 years ago that in the 'last days' of history, Russia and Iran will form a military alliance to attack Israel from the north," Rosenberg wrote. "Bible scholars refer to this eschatological conflict, described in Ezekiel 38–39, as the 'War of Gog & Magog.'" He added, "Are these sudden and dramatic moves by Moscow and Tehran...simply coincidental, or [do they] have prophetic implications?" Rosenberg's question is at the center of the very debate surrounding Iran, Syria, and Russia and their perceived involvement in the end times — one that has attracted a great deal of attention both in Christian circles and in media over the years. The military alliance between Russia and Iran was also discussed by Laurie, who said that the "entrance of Russia . . . as an ally of Syria and Iran, and this alliance between Russia and Iran is a special interest in the Bible." He called the current alignments between Russia and Iran particularly notable, though he said that it is important to differentiate between the details he's certain of and those that he cannot definitively speak to. "I'm very careful when I teach Bible prophecy to not paint myself into a corner and say things that I can't be certain of," Laurie told me. "Do I know with 100 percent certainty that Gog is Russia? No, I do not." But, despite not being able to say with complete and utter confi- dence the identities of Gog and Magog, there are some elements sur- rounding Ezekiel that Laurie said he is most confident about. "Do I know that a force called Gog and Magog will march against Israel? Yes, I do. That's the way I teach it," he said. "I offer my views, but I always give myself a little wiggle room, because clearly people have thought other things in the past and have been wrong, so we want to be very careful to not say this is absolutely the interpretation unless the Bible is completely clear on the topic." Back in 2013 I first began dissecting this subject in a series for TheBlaze, speaking with experts about what role, if any, they believe Syria will play in eschatological scenarios. I noted at the time that there's one par- ticular Bible passage that's rekindling the entire discussion surrounding how Syria might fit into end-times theology: Isaiah 17:1–3. It reads, "See, Damascus will cease from being a city; it shall be a ruinous heap. The cities of Aroer are forsaken; they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and no one shall make them afraid. The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Aram; they shall be as the glory of the sons of Israel, says the Lord of Hosts." The Syria example is perhaps a perfect paradigm to see how those with different theological viewpoints approach the same texts in very different ways. Consider that the first portion about a "ruinous heap" has some wondering if the present Syria crisis was prophesied in the Bible, but some scholars have countered that Damascus was already destroyed and that this verse refers to an attack by the Assyrians that unfolded in 732 BC. Specifically noting Isaiah 17:1–3 and Jeremiah 49:23–27, Rosenberg explained in a separate 2013 blog piece that — despite some experts referencing the Assyrian attack — Damascus's destruction has not yet happened. Jeremiah 49:23–27 pledges judgment upon Damascus, pro- claiming that it has "become helpless" and that a fire will be kindled in its walls. "These prophecies have not yet been fulfilled. Damascus is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities on earth. It has been attacked, besieged, and conquered," Rosenberg wrote. "But Damascus has never been completely destroyed and left uninhabited." The prophecy expert went on to explain that Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49 speak to prophetic judgments that he believes God will dole out on Israel's neighbors and enemies before and during the Tribulation period. A boy, whose brother was killed, reacts at a site hit by airstrikes in the rebel-controlled area of Maaret al-Numan town in Idlib province, Syria, June 2, 2016. While Rosenberg was definitive in this sense, he did note that the Bible is not specific, in his view, about how the city will be destroyed or what that event will look like. Additionally he noted that the implications of this destruction are not known either, as the Holy Book does not go into substantial detail on the matter. During a phone interview with TheBlaze in 2013, Rosenberg also explained Syria's significance in the Bible, again bringing up both Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49. Claiming that these predictions get "very little attention," he explained that they each speak about the future of Damascus: "The Bible indicates clearly that Damascus will be utterly and completely destroyed at some point in the future — it will be a great cataclysmal [event] and it will be part of God's judgment," Rosenberg said. He added that he doesn't see "clean hands in the fight" in Syria and wonders if it's possible "that the judgment of Damascus is not only coming" but if it could be coming within our lifetime. Not everyone is on board with the claim that the Old Testament could be describing future — or even current — events that will befall Syria. Hank Hanegraaff also spoke about supposed biblical prophecies associated with the end times back in 2013 on his radio show. A caller asked about claims that the Book of Isaiah details coming destruction for Damascus, the capital of Syria, a claim to which Hanegraaff pushed back. "So, what you're saying is they're tying in the passages in Isaiah to what is currently happening in Syria...and this is just a classic example of newspaper eschatology and shame on the pastors that are doing this, because it either is a case of them not knowing the Word of God, which seems unlikely to me, or simply wanting to invite sensationalism and sophistry," he responded. "If you look at what the Bible actually says, it is very clear that the fulfillment comes in the biblical text as well." And Hanegraaff wasn't done there. "This whole notion is fulfilled in biblical history when the king of the Assyria captured and destroyed Damascus...if you look at Isaiah chapter 7, there's a permutation of this as well...you see the fulfill- ment in the very next chapter, Isaiah chapter 8," he continued. Hanegraaff went on to say that some pastors' decisions to transport pieces of prophecy to the twenty-first century are irresponsible. He called the action "embarrassing" and said that those pastors and Bible experts who embrace the idea are "dragging Christ's name through the mud." He simply doesn't believe that, on these matters, the Bible's writers were looking so fervently into the future, and he contends that they were speaking about prophecy that would unfold in the immediate and that has already come to pass.19 "I think the point we have to probably recognize is that all of the Bible was written for us, but none of it was written to us," he contended. "This book of Revelation was written to seven churches." Hanegraaff said that end-times prophecy has been touted for centuries, but none of it ever comes to pass. Rather than reading the Scriptures for what they are, he believes that some theologians are "reading into the Scriptures their own eschatological views." Dr. Candida Moss, a professor of New Testament and early Christianity at the University of Notre Dame, also penned a 2013 article attempting to debunk claims that Damascus may play a role in end times. She said that the city has already been repeatedly conquered. "Isaiah lived and wrote in the eighth century BCE [BC] and scholars think that the original prophecy referred to the conquest of Damascus by the Assyrians in 732 BCE [BC]," she wrote. "But that's not the only time Damascus has seen conflict." Moss went on to list those who had conquered Damascus, including Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar and Alexander the Great. She also explained that, in the seventh century, Damascus was in the middle of a Muslim siege led by General Khalid ibn al-Walid. Later the Turco-Mongol armies of Timur conquered it around the turn of the fifteenth century, killing the entire population and apparently erecting a tower built with severed heads. In the end, the debate is fascinating, as both sides — comprised of individuals who believe in Christ and who contend that Jesus will one day return — couldn't disagree more about the alleged signs and symbols present within the Bible's complex text.

At least 20 killed in Damascus bomb attack

Saturday 11 June 2016 15.23

At least 20 people were killed and scores wounded in twin suicide and car bomb blasts in a Damascus suburb that contains Syria's holiest Shia Muslim shrine, state television said. The so-called Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack, the IS-affiliated Amaq news agency said. A Shia religious cleric on the state-run Ikhbariyah TV channel said the car bomb blast was not far from the shrine area in the main al-Taen street. US condemns attack on besieged Syrian town by Assad regime The United States has condemned Bashar al-Assad's Syrian regime, accusing it of bombing starving civilians just hours after they received a long-delayed UN aid shipment. Late on Thursday, the besieged rebel-held town of Daraya received its first United Nations food delivery since 2012, a lifeline for the suffering population. Shortly afterwards, according to a witness and human rights monitors, President Assad's forces bombarded the town, dropping indiscriminate barrel bombs from helicopters as residents shared food. "The Syrian regime conducted multiple barrel bomb attacks on Daraya this morning," US State Department spokesman Mark Toner said. "That came just hours after the UN convoy arrived," he told reporters. "Obviously such attacks are unacceptable in any circumstance but in this case they also hampered the delivery and distribution of badly needed assistance." Mr Toner said the fact that President Assad had allowed the convoy in to the town at all was "positive, but only a partial delivery and we would call for the rest of the supplies to be delivered as soon as possible". And he said that only the United Nations should decide where and when to distribute aid inside Syria and that the fate of hungry populations must not be left to the regime. Meanwhile, a separate inter-agency convoy entered Douma in rebel-held Eastern Ghouta near Damascus last night. UN mediator Staffan de Mistura, speaking to reporters on Thursday, said President Assad's government had approved UN land convoys to 15 of 17 government-besieged areas in June. Air drops remain an option if the convoys did not move, he said. Hussam Aala, Syria's ambassador to the UN in Geneva, said: "Discussions are still going on about one pending location. The rest were all approved." Access to al Waer in Homs province was still under discussion, he said. Around 1.9 tonnes of medicines for chronic diseases such as hypertension and diabetes as well as antibiotics, from the World Health Organization were on the delivery that entered Daraya. However, the government did not approve delivery of three burns kits that would have been enough to treat about 30 people with dressings and pain killers, rejecting them from the approved list, WHO spokesman Tarik Jasarevic said. There was also anger and frustration at the insufficient amount of food aid delivered, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported. The British-based group tracks the war using sources on the ground. It cited the Daraya local council as saying the supplies brought in would not last two weeks. The council said the population of Daraya is over 8,000 - more than double what the UN estimates.  Source: AFP/Reuters

Al Qaeda's al-Zawahiri purportedly pledges allegiance to new Taliban chief

By Merieme Arif, CNN Updated 7:50 AM ET, Sat June 11, 2016

Who are the Taliban in 2016? 01:35

(CNN) A man purporting to be al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri pledged allegiance to the new Taliban leader Mawlawi Haibatullah Akhundzada in a recently released audio statement. "As the Emir of al Qaeda jihadist group, I present our allegiance to you," say the man's voice, which sounds like al-Zawahiri's. The statement was purportedly recorded on May 27. But CNN couldn't independently verify the message's authenticity. READ: Isolated bin Laden struggled to keep his bodyguards The statement appears to have been released through social media channels. Last month, the Taliban named Akhundzada to lead the Afghan militant group. The selection came after his predecessor Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Mansour was killed in a drone strike in Pakistan. The man purporting to be al-Zawahiri said in the message that the jihadist group was "sad" over the death of Mansour. He praised the dead leader for fighting against what he called "Russian and Christian crusaders" and for "dying a martyr after a long history of jihad."

etc.  for if you put the man in that I desire for you to put in, you will have good times until you go.  If not it shall be hell here on earth and you will think that you have been left behind, but that is not so.  

For I have told you before this that this would be the last President, that this would be the last President as you know a President, therefore listen, pay attention, for it is your life it will affect, but it doesn’t need to affect it in a bad sense it can affect it in a good sense.  You can be the victors, you can be the overcomers, but hear, hear what I, your Father God, has to say. 

For truly my people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge and I, your Father God, have said that if you lack anything ask and I, your Father God, will give it unto you.  And therefore, I am giving wisdom and knowledge when it is asked of me, but many times my people do not ask of me, but they make their own choice and their own decisions, and therefore, they have to pay the consequences and the price for those decisions.  Even as in the days of old when the children of Israel said let us, let us choose and they chose and the one that they chose was not the one that I chose and they ended up defeated because of that.  So you see my people when you follow after me and follow after my word and when you seek my wisdom, when you seek my counsel you are able to make the right decisions.  The decision that will bring you victory, the decision that will make you the overcomer, the decision that will help you and you see how the people decided in the past and they made the wrong decision and they paid the consequence because of that.  So seek my face, call upon my name, ask for wisdom, ask for knowledge and I will give unto you that wisdom, I will give unto you that knowledge, I will show you exactly who to vote for, I will show you what to do.  For truly if you follow after my ways and my wisdom you shall have victory, saith the Lord.

Evangelicals give Trump stamp of approval

By Jonathan Swan June 10, 2016, 03:04 pm

Donald Trump was held up as the only choice for evangelical voters this November at a high-profile conference where faith leaders gave the presumptive Republican nominee their stamp of approval.

Trump received a nearly minute-long standing ovation at the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority conference in Washington on Friday and was presented to the audience as the principled choice for Christian voters in the general election. Evangelical leader Ralph Reed, the chairman of Faith & Freedom and a leading political figure on the Christian right for decades, delivered a biblically minded rationale for voting Trump over Hillary Clinton. Describing Trump as a “good friend,” Reed confronted head on the faith community’s doubts about Trump’s personal morality, telling the audience that they shouldn’t be searching for perfection in their political leaders. Reed said there’s only one example of perfection in human history “and that’s Jesus Christ.” “Unlike a lot of our friends on the other side, we’re not looking for a political Messiah,” Reed said. “Because we already have a Messiah.” Reed said evangelical voters have an obligation not to stay home this November and rejected the argument by some values voters that they wouldn't vote because they see Clinton and Trump as a choice between two evils. Reed said that was demonstrably untrue because of Trump’s positions on abortion, gay marriage and the list he released of socially conservative Supreme Court nominees. Clinton, Reed added, supports “abortion on demand for any reason at all or for no reason at all.” He then listed what he said were her unacceptable views on gay marriage and other issues of importance to the Christian right. “That’s what’s on the ballot and we cannot escape the choice that’s before us,” Reed said. He added, in an apparent reference to Trump, that they serve an Almighty God who “uses imperfect people to achieve his perfect will.” While Trump won a plurality of evangelical voters during the GOP primaries, he needs millions more to turn out for him in the general election. Some social conservatives — including a number who voted for Ted Cruz over Trump in the primaries — still cannot bring themselves to support a candidate who curses in public and has made derogatory remarks about women. Trump tried to live up to Reed's billing in his speech Friday. It was a lower key, humbler Trump at the Omni Shoreham hotel. He used a teleprompter for the speech and delivered scripted lines that sounded like a conventional politician. “Together, friends, we will chart a new optimistic course for America,” Trump said. “We will restore faith to its proper mantle in society.” Trump even tried to show grace toward Code Pink protesters who interrupted his speech. As the women were escorted out by security, shouting about how terrible they thought Trump’s refugee policies were, the real estate tycoon didn’t say he wished he could punch them in the face, as he did about protesters during the primary season. Instead, Trump told the crowd that the protesters were expressing their rights of “freedom of speech. ”When the protestors were kicked out, audience members chanted “Trump! Trump! Trump!” and “USA! USA! USA!” One man chanted, “Build that wall! Build that wall!” And even Trump's proposed wall got its evangelical stamp of approval on Friday.

Palestinians Cheer Tel Aviv Slaughter

How Israel's "peace partners" react when women and children are ruthlessly murdered.

June 10, 2016 Ari Lieberman

The calm in Tel Aviv was shattered Wednesday night when two Arab gunmen in their 20s from the Palestinian Authority-controlled village of Yatta drew automatic weapons and began to systematically gun down every civilian in sight. When the carnage was over, four people – two men and two women – were dead and about a dozen others were wounded, three of them critically. Both terrorists were caught alive, though one sustained serious wounds during his apprehension. Israeli doctors performed life-saving emergency surgery on him while his victims were either dead or dying. The blood on the pavement hadn’t even dried before “Palestinians,” as is their custom, celebrated the “heroic Tel Aviv operation.” In Palestinian lexicon, terrorist attacks targeting innocent civilians – men, women and children – are routinely referred to as “heroic” or “martyrdom operations.” As Israelis were burying their dead, celebratory fireworks were going off in Hamas-controlled Gaza while elsewhere, in the PA-controlled West Bank, Palestinian Arabs were cheering and passing out sweets in recognition of their comrades’ bestial slaughter. Even the so-called “moderate” Palestinian President for Life, Mahmoud Abbas, couldn’t bring himself to call the Tel Aviv massacre, “terrorism” or “murder.” Instead, all he was able to muster was half-hearted disapproval. He issued a repulsive and disingenuous statement noting that the PA is opposed “to any ‘operation’ that harms civilians by anybody, regardless of the justifications.” Note use of the word “operation” to describe wanton violence and depravity. The Obama administration predictably gave Abbas a free pass and did not bother challenging his fake and rather pathetic statement of disapproval. This is an administration that has time and again failed to hold the PA to normal standards of morality and have them account for their aberrant behavior. Instead, the administration is besotted by Israeli “settlements” as though this was the cause of all the world’s ills. The administration deceitfully overlooks the fact that blame for this terror attack and many others rests squarely on the shoulders of Abbas and his Palestinian Authority which encourages incitement through official and unofficial channels. In every Palestinian venue and forum, in print and social media, Jews are routinely referred to as apes, pigs, monkeys, thieves and child killers. Ironically, the attack comes on the heels of several Israeli goodwill gestures to the Palestinians, including the issuance of nearly 90,000 travel permits, allowing Palestinians to travel to Israel in deference to the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. The Palestinians in turn responded by blowing people away in a café, giving new meaning to the old adage of “no good deed goes unpunished.” Truth Revolt’s Tiffany Gabbay described the terrorists as worse than animals “because even animals do not kill for sadistic pleasure.” That assessment is accurate. The horrific CCTV footage of the attack reveals the true depths of their depravity. After shooting a civilian, who is seen lying motionless on the floor, one of the terrorist is observed gratuitously throwing a heavy object directly on the man’s head, causing the lifeless body to jolt. It was a sickening sight even by Palestinian standards of depravity. More troubling however, is the jubilant reaction from the Palestinian street. This is a society that revels in gore and bloodshed. It is a society that celebrates death – death of Jews and of American citizens. Following the September 11 attacks that resulted in the deaths of 3,000 people, Palestinians cheered. Old women were seen ululating while men danced, clapped, chanted Allahuakbar (what else?) and handed out sweets to mark the “joyous” event. Following the Boston Marathon bombing, they repeated the macabre spectacle, reveling in the murder of innocents. Arab apologists have attempted to justify the attacks, placing the blame not on the attackers but rather their victims, obscenely claiming that the “occupation” prompted the terrorists to act like bloody savages. They should be reminded however, that there was no “occupation” in 1920, 1921, 1929 and 1936 when Arabs perpetrated violent pogroms against Jewish citizens living under the British mandate. Those advocating for Palestinian statehood and independence should take note of Palestinian societal responses to acts of barbarism and savagery. Societies are capable of producing monsters but their deviant actions are reviled and condemned by the majority. But in the Palestinian case, the opposite holds true. They take pleasure in hearing news of butchery inflicted on civilians. It happened after 9-11. It happened after the Boston marathon attack and it happened after the Tel Aviv café attack. A society that collectively cheers when women and children are ruthlessly murdered and revels in gore and death is undeserving of statehood. This macabre mindset represents the single largest obstacle to peace and until it can be altered, negotiations are pointless.
