Pictured: Crew member who died alongside captain of HMS Bounty after it is smashed to pieces by Sandy

These pictures show the HMS Bounty moments before it sinks as rescue teams recover the body of one crew member from the sea while the ship's captain remains missing, presumed dead.

Claudene Christian, 42, was pulled from the sea last night but was unresponsive and later pronounced dead, the U.S. coastguard said.

It now means 15 of the 16 crew members of the iconic boat are accounted for - with 63-year-old captain Robin Walbridge yet to be found.

HMS Bounty Sinks. A sad tribute in photos

It appears that the good ship has sunk in this terrible storm in an area that has become a graveyard to many ships like her. It appears 17 are rescued and 2 are still missing. Everyone at The Plain Truth sends our thoughts and prayers to all that are involved. Also a thanks to those brave men in the Coast Guard. Here is the link to The Bounty's Facebook page... Visit them and "like" them and send any thoughts their way. The Virginian Pilot is reporting that: "

Sailors abandoned the HMS Bounty in the Atlantic Ocean on Monday after it took on water during Hurricane Sandy, and the fate of two of its crew in peril.

The Coast Guard is searching the waters off the coast of North Carolina for two missing crew members, including Capt. Robin Walbridge, from the tall ship after rescuing 14 others from lifeboats this morning, a spokesman said. The Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported that the other missing crew member is Claudene Christian of Oklahoma.

Coast Guard helicopters plucked the Bounty’s crewmembers from two canopied lifeboats in the Atlantic Ocean, a short time after the crew abandoned ship. The 180-foot, three-mast tall ship had lost propulsion and was taking on water, said Coast Guard spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Jamie Fredrick.

A short time later, the HMS Bounty sunk into the Atlantic Ocean about 90 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, Fredrick said.

“They lost their generator and when they lost their generator, they lost their ability to dewater the vessel,” Fredrick said. “That’s when they made their decision to abandon ship.”

Survivors told Coast Guard officials that three of the crew were thrown overboard while they were getting into the lifeboats. One man was able to swim to the life rafts but two others were pulled away. 

Everyone was wearing cold water suits and life vests, which means they have a good chance of surviving until they can be rescued, Fredrick said."

Obama's ring: 'There is no god but Allah'

Barack Obama's gold band

NEW YORK – As a student at Harvard Law School, then-bachelor Barack Obama’s practice of wearing a gold band on his wedding-ring finger puzzled his colleagues.

Now, newly published photographs of Obama from the 1980s show that the ring Obama wore on his wedding-ring finger as an unmarried student is the same ring Michelle Robinson put on his finger at the couple’s wedding ceremony in 1992.

Moreover, according to Arabic-language and Islamic experts, the ring Obama has been wearing for more than 30 years is adorned with the first part of the Islamic declaration of faith, the Shahada: “There is no God except Allah.”

Inscription on Obama's ring

The Shahada is the first of the Five Pillars of Islam, expressing the two fundamental beliefs that make a person a Muslim: There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is Allah’s prophet.

Sincere recitation of the Shahada is the sole requirement for becoming a Muslim, as it expresses a person’s rejection of all other gods

Egyptian-born Islamic scholar Mark A. Gabriel, Ph.D., examined photographs of Obama’s ring at WND’s request and concluded that the first half of the Shahada is inscribed on it.

“There can be no doubt that someone wearing the inscription ‘There is no god except Allah’ has a very close connection to Islamic beliefs, the Islamic religion and Islamic society to which this statement is so strongly attached,” Gabriel told WND.  MorE>>>>>>>>>>

Despite Obama's Claims, Al Qaeda Making Comeback in Afghanistan

Since the death of former al Qaeda ring leader Osama bin Laden, President Obama has told America over and over again that the terrorist group has been defeated and severely damaged. Even a day after the 9/11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Obama said, "al Qaeda is on it's way to defeat and Osama bin Laden is dead." Until just last week, "al Qaeda is on the run," was part of Obama's campaign trail stump speech.

Not only was 9/11 a harsh reminder the terrorist group is alive and well, after all they did rip down the U.S. flag and replace it with the flag of al Qaeda, reports show the group making a comeback in Afghanistan.

Unlocking the Mysteries of Petra

English: Petra, El Deir Deutsch: Petra, El DeirEnglish: Petra, El Deir Deutsch: Petra, El Deir (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

'Atlantis in the Sand'
Bob Barney Forward: Bible Fact- Petra is the THIRD most mentioned place in the Bible (under other names). It is the homeland of Esau (Edomites) the twin brother of Jacob, and has great significance yet to come during the Tribulation.
The discovery of the ancient desert city of Petra by Swiss explorer and Orientalist Johann Ludwig Burckhardt in 1812 is considered a great moment in history. Far away from all settlements, surrounded by dust and shimmering air, he had discovered what Lawrence of Arabia would later describe as the "most beautiful place on Earth." Today, Petra is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Two centuries after Burckhardt's discovery of the rock-cut city in Jordan, the Basel Museum of Ancient Art is exhibiting the latest archaeological finds from the "Atlantis of the Desert." Four teams of scientists -- from France, Germany, Switzerland and the United States -- are currently working at the site.
As archaeologists have been uncovering the true nature of the structures cut into the cliffs, such misconceptions have been dispelled. In truth, Petra was once an oasis with irrigated gardens and streets lined with temples and luxurious homes. There were camel troughs and storage vats for frankincense, myrrh and Indian spices.

Petra, The Bible, and The Church

English: Sandstone Rock-cut tombs (Kokh) in Pe...English: Sandstone Rock-cut tombs (Kokh) in Petra (Jordan) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Bob Barney:

For the most part the city of Petra has been forgotten in church prophecy. Yet Petra, first inhabited by Canaanite Horites, then Edomites, Israelites, Nabatean Arabs, is actually third third most mentioned place in the Bible!  Once a most important place to Ancient Israel and God, then lost to the world for 1500 years, now being investigated again since it’s rediscovery in 1812. Petra has many names in the Bible- The following link is from


Petra, Jordan (Kadesh Barnea)

Josephus says Kadesh Barnea was located at Petra in 1400 BC. The Treasury at Petra was carved by the Nabataeans in 100 BC and represents a reuse of the Hebrew city. This unusual "city of the tombs" carved into solid sandstone by the Nabataeans was the place Israel buried their dead for 38 years.

Since the time of Joshua, is has been called "The Rock" (Sela/Petra) because this is where Moses brought water out of the Rock.

Introduction: Reasons why Petra is Kadesh:

    1.    You can prove from the Bible that Kadesh must be Transjordan, east of the Arabah Valley. (see below or southern boundaries of Judah for more specific details.) When Israel departed Kadesh, they headed south towards the Red Sea and came to Mt. Hor where Aaron died. We know, therefore, that Kadesh is either at Petra, or just north of it.
    2.    Eusebius (325 AD), Jerome (400 AD) both said that Kadesh was located at Petra. They also said that in their day, they could still see the rock that Moses struck with his staff for water.
    3.    Josephus (110 AD), Eusebius (325 AD), Jerome (400 AD) all stated that Petra is where Aaron died on Mt. Hor. Mt. Hor was Transjordan outside the promise land only one stop from Kadesh.
    4.    All Bible maps since 1916 AD wrongly locate Kadesh Barnea at ein el-Qudeirat which is 27 km inside formal stated boundary of the promised land. Israel did not spend 38 years in the wilderness in the territory given to Judah. So the current choice of Kadesh at Qudeirat is wrong for two reasons: 1. it is not Transjordan. 2. It is inside the promised land. Both of these reasons are based upon explicit Bible passages.
    5.    The name "Petra" means rock, because this is the place where Moses "brought water out of the rock". The Bible refers to Petra three times as "Sela", which also means rock. In 325 AD Eusebius said that he could visit Petra and see the very rock that Moses split in two and water came out. We believe that the 1 km long crevice called "the Siq", is itself what was split in two. People are looking for a single rock that split, when in fact it was more like an earth quake that split an entire mountain in two. More on the rock that split.
    6.    There is an ancient tradition (Eusebius) of the "River of Moses" (Wadi Musa) that flows through the 1 km long crevice (Siq), past the Nabataean Treasury then down into the Arabah valley. This reinforces why it is called, "Petra". Both the Rock that Moses struck and the resulting flow of water are ancient traditions at Petra. There are several springs in the Petra area even today. The Siq is a complex geological feature that has many places where water could enter it.
    7.    Geologist, Dr. Don Patton has personally examined the "River of Moses" (Siq), and has concluded that the canyon has hydrological features consistent with water cutting. As you walk the Siq, there are many fissures where water came out of the rock and joined the main flow. The Roman road that was recently excavated below 15 feet of earth, proves that the Siq is a dead relic canyon that has not deepened in 2300 years. This indicates that a large continuous flow of water cut the canyon quickly.
    8.    Archeology has uncovered evidence an occupation of Petra of a people (perhaps Hebrew) before the Edomites (1400 - 950 BC), Solomon (950 - 930 BC) and the Nabataeans (350 BC - 106 AD) Romans (106 AD - 300 AD) There is an ancient "Neolithic" town at Al-Beidha, just north of Petra. This is the general area where we would expect to find Kadesh, although we are not suggesting (to make it clear) that these Neolithic remains are from the exodus period.
    9.    Archeologists look for candidate locations of Kadesh with large natural water supplies. Ein el-Qudeirat, for example, was chosen for just this reason. Today Qudeirat is the almost universal choice of location on all Bible maps because it is the largest spring in the Sinai Peninsula for a 100 km radius. But the real Kadesh was described as a waterless place with no crops, grazing lands or fruit trees. Only with a miracle of Moses hitting the rock, did a large river result. Although we can prove from Tell el-kheleifeh, that sea levels are unchanged, the water table levels have dropped dramatically since the Exodus. Even during the time of Christ there were many springs flowing at Petra. In 15 AD, Strabo: "The metropolis of the Nabataeans is Petra ... and the inside parts having springs in abundance, both for domestic purposes and for watering gardens. (Strabo. Geography 16:4:21, 15 AD) Yet today, the 5 springs of Petra, have almost all dried up. So Kadesh is likely located at a place with no springs at all that we can see today!
    10.    No one knows why the tombs of the dead are there. It even says this in the official site information. Moshe said this. it is because it is near Mt. Hor where Aaron and Miriam were buried.
    11.    Since they spent 38 years at Kadesh, the tombs were where the dead Israelites were kept. The Nabateans found the site continued in the tradition started by the Hebrews of using it as a burial city. "The city underwent major construction in the period 50 BC to AD 100 during the reigns of Obodas II (III) and Aretas IV (with construction of the Treasury, Q'asr al Bint, Temple of the Winged Lions and Theatre), and Roman and Greek technologies most probably influenced the water-system design." (The Water Supply of Petra, Charles R. Ortloff, Cambridge Archaeological Journal, 2005, 15:1:93-109)
    12.    Moshe pointed out what he believed to be where the Israelite camp was at Petra.
    13.    There is no large flow of water now at Petra, the canyons are water cut relics of the past. Just like Mammoth caves in Kentucky are a relic of past events, so too Petra.
    14.    See the main page on Kadesh Barnea.
    15.    "Despite 75 years of excavation, only one percent of the city has been investigated." (How Petra was Built, Shaher M. Rababeh, 2005, p28)
    16.    It is very interesting is that the location of Petra was unknown in 1600 AD. It was rediscovered in 1812, by John Lewis Burckhardt. Yet maps from the 1600's knew of its existence but they were not sure where to locate it. For example, in 1587 AD, Abraham Ortelius had two locations for Petra and Kadesh Barnea. A precedent for mapping uncertain locations in two places is also found in the Madaba map regarding the location of Mt. Gerizim and Mt. Ebal. Just as the Madaba Map has two locations for Gerizim and Ebal, so too does Abraham Ortelius's map have two locations for Petra and Kadesh Barnea. What is clear, however, is that Abraham Ortelius located Kadesh Barnea beside Petra. He just didn't know where Petra was! See our map page for more details.
    17.    After a careful research of the Bible and history, it became evident that Kadesh was either at or just north of Petra. 4 km north of Petra is Beidha which has traces of human occupation going back as far as the flood (3000 BC). The three occupational stages at Beidha occurred between 3000 - 1000 BC. Occupation by the Nabataeans about 100 BC is also evident. We believe that Beidha was part of Kadesh Barnea and represented public buildings used for various communal things. (Early Village Life At Beidha: Neolithic, Brian Byrd, 2005 AD)

God’s TRUE Church is pictured in Revelation 12. It is symbolized by a woman-(the bride of Christ). We see that by the end time, the true Church is hated by the world.  The great False Christian Church in Rome is not this church. The Church in Rome will be loved and a leader in the Tribulation times. According to verse 6 the true Church flees the first time from her persecutors for 1260 years - during the Middle Ages. But verse 14 unveils another flight of the Church-in the very last days. This time the duration is only 3y2 years! “And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle”-supernatural deliverance-“that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time”--3 1/2 years.

Revelation 3:7-13. “I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation”-the time of trial--“which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth’ (verse 10). Here is a world-wide terror that will come upon the entire world. This is not for the slow-moving past. It is a prophecy for the soon to come “last days” of human history--just before God intervenes to set up His Kingdom to bring peace to the world.

Isaiah 42:l0-13. Here is a prophecy for today-a time of divine intervention, verse 14. Now read verse 11 from the Jewish Publication Society translation according to the original inspired Hebrew:
“Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar doth inhabit”--the descendants of Kedar are the Bedouin Arabs who dwell throughout the Middle East in black tents. Here we have a wilderness located in the Arab world! But continue reading: “Let the inhabitants of Sela exult. Let them shout from the top of the mountains.” The inhabitants of Sela? Who are they? And where is Sela? (In the King James Version the word for Sela is translated “rock.” Sela is the Hebrew name of Petra)
Isaiah 33: Beginning with verse 13 God warns the House of Israel (which is The United States, Britain, and certain Western and Northern European nations)-the “sinners in Zion”-of their sins (verse 14). “Who will be able to live through the endtime warfare?” God asks (verse 14). Those who obey Him, declares verse 15. But where will they go?
Verses 16 and 17 answer! “He shall dwell on high: his place of defense shall be the munitions of rocks.. .” This verse is poorly translated in most versions because the translators did not understand the prophecy. The true meaning has been hidden. The place of protection shall be, not munitions of rocks, but the “strongholds of Sela!” The original, inspired Hebrew, mistranslated “munitions,” is metsad, and means a stronghold or a castle or a fort. And the word for “rock” in this verse is Sela, the name of Petra in the Hebrew language!
Petra is a dry, barren area. It hardly provides a few dozen Bedouin sufficient sustenance. How are all of the faithful people of God to be provided for? Continue with the end of verse 16: “...his bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.” Here also is supernatural provision! Remember what happened to the children of Israel in the Sinai wilderness? God supernaturally provided them food and water nearly 40 long years! God can do the same today! It is not those who heap up provisions that shall escape! It is those who obey God, who do His work, and who trust Him to provide the necessities and the divine protection when that time arrives!
Verse 17 completes the picture: “Thine eyes shall see the King in His beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off’-or “they shall behold a land stretching afar,” according to the Jewish translation. We shall see Him as He is (I John 3:2). Notice also that those in safety see “the land”-Palestine, the promised land stretching into the distance. Surely here is another indication of the high rocky crags of Petra from which one may look northwest to the promised land.

In Isaiah 16,  in verses 1 to 5, the prophet foretells, “Send the lambs for the Ruler (Christ) of the land from Petra that is toward the wilderness, unto the mount of the daughter of Zion” The time setting of this prophecy is the return of Christ to rule the world. He is the King of the land. The Moabites are commanded to seek Him, to send Him an offering as a token of their submission. The offering comes from Petra.  Other prophecies also picture peoples from the east capturing the land east of the Jordan. (See Ezekiel 25:l0.) As these hordes plunge toward Palestine, slaughtering as they go, a pitiful remnant--described in Jeremiah 48:1-25--escapes at the Arnon (a stream running into the Dead Sea). The Moabite refugees flee southward for protection. Why? Is it perhaps because they have known of others already there in a place of safety? Now look at verse 4. God is addressing Moab: "Let Mine outcasts dwell with thee, Moab; be thou a covert to them from the face of the spoiler."
 "Mine outcasts," This is what God calls them. Now compare this prophecy with Jeremiah 48:28, “O ye that dwell in Moab, leave the cities, and dwell in the rock”--Petra--“and be like the dove that makes her nest in the sides of the holes mouth...” This is a great description of Petra, with its caves!
Isaiah 16:5 then reveals the very next prophetic event to occur: “then God will establish one of David's descendants as king. He will rule with mercy and truth. He will always do what is just and be eager to do what is right.”

The longest continuous prophecy, covering event by event over 2500 years of history, is found in Daniel chapters 10 - 12. In the eleventh chapter, verse 41, is a prophecy for the “End Times.” The final ruler of the Roman Empire--the King of the North (Europe) -- overruns Egypt and invades Palestine. “He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon” (v. 41). The ancient territories are today all found in one modern nation- Jordan! And in Jordan today is Petra!
Does not this prophecy imply that Jordan escapes because God has chosen this land to be a place of safety? Every one of these prophecies point to the mysterious city of Petra as a place of safety! Not all of the Church will end up here, as the Bible does not preach “protectionism” to the saved. Many Christians are to be slaughtered for the sake of Christ, others will be tortured and imprisoned, but a few will be protected by God in the wilderness - and that place may be Petra!

The hand of God???


Not literally, but maybe a symbolic message being sent to us from God Almighty that they (they being the Father and the Son) are in control and puny man has no power to stop God's plan of salvation that is coming to this earth in the future, maybe even the near future by the looks of things around the world. GOD IS IN CONTROL and GOD does give us signs everywhere of the Lord's presence.CLICK HERE!

Lara Logan Blast Obama and Muslim Sympathizers and Media Lies

CBS News and "60 Minutes" reporter Lara Logan lambasted the Obama administration for pushing the "major lie" that the Taliban has been weakened in Afghanistan by the U.S. military.

Logan gave a blistering speech in Chicago this past week that ripped the administration for the way it has handled the war in Afghanistan and the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya.

"I chose this subject because, one, I can't stand that there is a major lie being propagated," Logan said about the administration touting the weakening of the Taliban in Afghanistan. Logan, if you remember, was beaten and sexually assaulted by a mob in Cairo’s Tahrir Square while she covered the demonstrations prompted by President Hosni Mubarak’s resignation in 2011. No doubt that horrible experience left a negative impression on her while covering these international events.

Speaking about Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya who was killed, Logan says she hopes the U.S. will "exact revenge and let the world know that the United States will not be attacked on its own soil. That its ambassadors will not be murdered, and that the United States will not stand by and do nothing about it."

My 2008 warning to America

Official Portrait of President Ronald ReaganOfficial Portrait of President Ronald Reagan (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

In October 2008, I wrote this article on how important it was for Obama and his communistic ways be defeated.... After 4 years, we have seen this warning become real......

By Bob Barney

In yet another move yesterday, the FED moved to directly make loans to large corporations. Little guys need not apply. Some seventy-five percent of all employed Americans works for the little guy, but only large corporations get any help from good Ole Uncle Sam! America, are you going to awaken? Do you not see what your future holds if this continual move towards totalitarianism continues? We are in the darkest hour of our existence as a nation! No, we are not on the verge of losing our homeland, like, we were in 1812, or our nation is not embroiled in a Civil War, as we were in 1863, but we are on the verge of becoming prisoners of our own government with our national malaise and welfare mentality. I have been calling all Americans to stand up for years now. Big business is just as evil as big government and the two in collusion equals FASCISM! Did you read that? Fascism! That's what we are moving to. On one hand, we have this almost surrealistic Obama movement which is much closer to the Nazi's in Germany than anything ever seen before and on the other hand, John McCain who is probably the weakest, and least able candidate to have run since Jimmy Carter! However, John McCain and Sarah Palin is our only hope! At least they are not total socialist and communist itching to destroy America and turn us into a European vessel state. That is what an Obama led nation will do!

I have included some quotes that can say far better than I what our fate is going to be, unless we wake up and take this country back! We must reject every sitting House member that voted for the bailout. I don't care what party they belong to. We must reject the Obama ticket and let McCain know that we will not tolerate any more erosion of personal rights, liberties and wealth. We must break up all monopolistic big business entities into smaller groups and must give American businesses most favored company status over foreign companies. We want Toyota in America, but we want it to be an American company, 51 owned by Americans! Let them spin off a subsidiary, something they do in other countries in order to be there.

Friends, this is a pivotal time for America. We are not just talking about who is elected President of the USA, we are talking about who we select to lead this nation going forward. Hopefully, by God's grace, John McCain will be that man and maybe Palin can return us to our glory days like we had with Ronald Reagan. However, it is important that you take back your government. Stop aliens from voting, stop the nonsense of ACORN and all like organizations and FIRE those who want to see us enslaved. I have warned that the Bible predicts that this will eventually happen to America, but it doesn't need to happen yet. We need to wake up.

In 1972, David Rockefeller(a Director of the Federal Reserve Bank and director of Chase Bank), who with Zbigniew Brzezinski, wanted to "bring the best brains in the world to bear on problems of the future." Speaking at Chase Manhattan International Financial Forums in London, Brussels, Montreal, and Paris, he proposed the creation of an International Commission of Peace and Prosperity (which would later become the Trilateral Commission). At the 1972 meeting, the idea was widely accepted, but elsewhere, it got a cool reception. According to Rockefeller, the organization could "be of help to government by providing measured judgment."

Zbigniew Brzezinski, a professor at Columbia University, and a Rockefeller adviser, who was a specialist on international affairs, left his post to organize the group with Henry Owen(a Foreign Policy Studies Director with the Brookings Institution), George S. Franklin, Robert Bowie (of the Foreign Policy Association and Director of the Harvard Center for International Affairs), Gerard Smith (Salt I negotiator , Rockefeller in-law , and 1st North American Chairman ) , Marshall Hornblower, William Scranton (former Governor of Pennsylvania), Edwin Reischauer(a professor at Harvard), and Max Kohnstamn. Brzezinski was the author of the book Between Two Ages, which was published in 1970, in which he called for a new international monetary system, and is considered to be the "Bible" of the Trilateralists. On page 72, he said: "Marxism is simultaneously a victory of the external, active man over the inner, passive man and a victory of reason over belief." He calls for "deliberate management of the American future (pg. 260)", a "community of nations (pg. 296)" and a "world government (pg. 308)". He became the first Director(1973-76), drafted its Charter, and became its driving force.

Funding for the group came from David Rockefeller, the Charles F. Kettering Foundation, and the Ford Foundation. (quotes from

Journalist Bill Moyers said "David Rockefeller is the most conspicuous representative today of the ruling class, a multinational fraternity of men who shape the global economy and manage the flow of its capital...Private citizen David Rockefeller is accorded privileges of a head of state...He is untouched by customs or passport offices and hardly pauses for traffic lights."

In 1973, David Rockefeller met with 27 heads of state, including representatives from the Soviet Union and China; Furthermore, in 1974, had a meeting with Pope Paul VI, who afterward called for the nations to form a world government. Sen. Barry Goldwater wrote that the Commission was "intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States. Goldwater wrote in his book With No Apologies: "What the Trilaterals truly intend is the creation of a worldwide economic power superior to the political government of the nation-states involved. As managers and creators of the system they will rule the world....In my view, the Trilateral Commission represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power: political, monetary, intellectual, and ecclesiastical." On the left, the U.S. Labor Party alleges that the Commission was created by multinational companies in order to dominate American foreign policy. Upon analysis, their economic plans leaned toward the controlling of energy sources, food production, and the international monetary system, so was there any reason to doubt that there were ulterior motives to their agenda. (quotes from You need to read all of this article!

It wasn't Just Barry Goldwater who predicted economic disaster for America if these industrialist powers over government did not get curtailed, Ronald Reagan said much of the same. In 1964, Reagan said, " No nation in history has ever survived a tax burden that reached a third of its national income..... A government can't control the economy without controlling people. In addition, they know when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. They also knew, those Founding Fathers, that outside of its legitimate functions, government does nothing as well or as economically as the private sector of the economy."

He went on to say some 44 years ago that "Private property moralities are so diluted that public interest is almost anything that a few government planners decide it should be. In a program that takes for the needy and gives to the greedy" Does this sound like 2008? I think so.

I agree with Reagan when he said, "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this Earth. " Reagan also said in 1980 "The people have not created this disaster in our economy; the federal government has. It has overspent, overestimated, and over-regulated. " This is just as true today!

Ronald Reagan, like what I have been writing about knew that our country needed a special relationship with God and that only God's blessings could pull us through tuff times. "We who are privileged to be Americans have had a rendezvous with destiny since the moment in 1630 when John Winthrop, standing on the deck of the tiny Arbella off the coast of Massachusetts, told the little band of Pilgrims, "We shall be a city upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us so that if we shall deal falsely with our God in this work we have undertaken and so cause Him to withdraw His present help from us, we shall be made a story and a byword throughout the world."

Please take the time and Read Ronald Reagan's words. They ring true today! Click Here!

America, if we wake up, we can stop what is certainly going to be our fate. Wake Up!

Archaeologists Explore Two Mysterious Caves Near the Dead Sea

Excavation director suggests that they may be the resting place of the lost archives of the Jewish Second Temple.

Archaeologists Explore Two Mysterious Caves Near the Dead Sea

Hidden within desert desolation near the Dead Sea region of Ein Gedi, Israel, are two caves that at least one archaeologist suggests may possibly contain what remains of the lost archive of the Jewish Second Temple. The famous temple became one of King Herod's greatest architectural achievements and was destroyed by the Romans in 70 A.D. at the time of the First Jewish Revolt against the Roman Empire.

Led by Dr. Haim Cohen, a team plans to continue excavating a cave known as "Cave 27", a cave where Cohen had previously conducted excavations in 2003 under the auspices of Haifa University and again in 2006, as well as exploratory investigations of a sealed cave discovered by Cohen during a 2007 survey.  

Cave 27, also called the "Mikveh Cave" or Cave of the Pool at Nahal David, is best known for the Second Temple period (530 BCE to 70 CE) mikveh, or ritual cleansing pool>>>>> More>>>>>

"One day we found an opening in the bedrock. I put my hand inside to look to see what is going on and we found a huge water cistern." -Eli Shukron

Cistern found (Israel)—Archaeologists have discovered a huge man-made water cistern, or reservoir, near the Temple Mount in Jerusalem that dates back to Solomon's Temple.

According to a CBN News report, it is one of the largest reservoirs from that time period found in the Holy City.

The reservoir, which measures 40 feet long and more than 15 feet wide, could have held up to 66,000 gallons of water.

"The water comes from a tunnel in the Tyropone Valley," said archaeologist Eli Shukron, "and from the valley they [moved] the water into the water cistern."

Blaze readers are likely familiar with CBS correspondent, Lara Logan, the wartime journalist who endured a horrific ordeal in Egypt last summer when she was beaten and sexually assaulted by a mob of angry Egyptian men during their Arab Spring “celebrations.” Now, Logan has a message for the public: “they” (the Taliban and other Islamic operatives) are as strong as ever.

During a recent keynote address at the Better Government Association annual luncheon last Tuesday, Logan delivered what the Chicago Sun Times called “a provocative speech” to some 1,100 movers in government, politics, media, and the legal and corporate arenas. She explained that the Taliban, al Qaeda and its proxies haven’t gone away and are in fact re-energized and coming back in force. Logan also informed the crowd that a “lie” is being propagated by the American government.  More>>>>>>>>

In a new foreign policy headache for the embattled Obama administration, a memo has now leaked from the White House detailing numerous ways in which the U.S. Embassy in Libya warned Washington about an upcoming attack, according to Jake Tapper of ABC News. The memo comes from the embassy’s “security support team,” a group of 16 special forces soldiers assigned to protect the embassy who were inexplicably removed from Libya in August over their commander’s objections, just one month before the attacks in Benghazi. That commander, Lieutenant Colonel Andy Wood, will testify about their removal before the House Oversight Committee this week. More>>>>>>>>>>>

Solomon, Socrates and Aristotle in Pompeii

(Biblical Archaeology Review) Is it possible that the earliest existing picture of a scene from the Bible also includes the philosophers Socrates and Aristotle as onlookers? It is not only possible; I believe that is the case.

The earliest depiction of a Biblical scene comes from a site that is perhaps better known to some for its erotic art than for its religious devotions: Pompeii. The city was buried in volcanic ash in 79 A.D. following the eruption of nearby Mt. Vesuvius. It was a devastating tragedy for Pompeii’s residents but a boon to modern scholars and art historians.

In the building known as the House of the Physician, excavators found a wall painting clearly depicting King Solomon seated on a raised tribunal and flanked by two counselors. As described in the Bible, two women have come to the Israelite monarch, each claiming to be the mother of the same infant.

The plans for a ship that has been dubbed Titanic II will be unveiled in New York, according to Australian billionaire Clive Palmer said.

Palmer, one of Australia's richest men, announced plans in April to construct the replica Titanic with exactly the same dimensions as the original.

He will release the design on the Intrepid Museum on Manhattan's West Side during a gala on Dec. 4, according to AFP.  The dinner menu will reportedly be the same menu as Titanic passengers were served on the day it say on April 15, 1912.

He plans on having the ship built in China before an initial passenger trip from Southampton in England to New York.

The ship is planned to be the same dimensions of the original and would have the same class separations as the original.

Unlike the Titanic, Palmer has said the new ship would have more safety features and air conditioning.

Pastor Offers Fiery Rebuke of Fellow Blacks: End Your ‘Slavish Devotion to the Democrat Party’


image from www.theblaze.comThe Bishop E.W. Jackson, founder of Chesapeake, Virginia-based Exodus Faith Ministries, recently released a controversial video calling for African Americans to make a mass exodus from the Democratic Party. Throughout the clip, Jackson delivers stinging blows to both liberals and the African Americans who continue to support them, while decrying what he sees as a “slavish devotion to the Democrat Party.”

“They have insulted us, used us, and manipulated us. They have saturated the black community with ridiculous lies,” he said, speaking directly to the black community. ”They think we are stupid and that these lies will hold us captive while they violate everything we believe as Christians.”

Jackson went into detail in the video, taking aim at the “unholy alliance” that he sees between Democrats, faux-civil rights leaders and Planned Parenthood.

“The Democratic Party has created an unholy alliance between certain so-called civil rights leaders and Planned Parenthood, which has killed unborn black babies by the tens of millions,” he proclaimed.
