Cellphone radiation can cause cancer: study

image from
The scientists were right — your cell phone can give you cancer.

There have long been whispers of a cancer connection from your cell — and a new study backs up the claims.

"These data are a clear sign of the real risks this kind of radiation poses for human health," study author Igor Yakymenko said.

Yakymenko’s meta-study — basically a study of hundreds of other studies — reveals many findings of previous researchers into how radiofrequency from your phone can damage DNA.

That damage can add up over time and cause a variety of health problems, like cancer, headaches, fatigue and even skin problems.

For example, using your phone for just 20 minutes a day for five years increased the risk of one type of brain tumor threefold, and using the phone an hour a day for four years upped the risk of some tumors three to five times, Yakymenko said.  MORE


Big brotherSAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Like a lot of teenagers, Aanya Nigam reflexively shares her whereabouts, activities and thoughts on Twitter, Instagram and other social networks without a qualm.

But Aanya's care-free attitude dissolved into paranoia a few months ago shortly after her mother bought Amazon's Echo, a digital assistant that can be set up in a home or office to listen for various requests, such as for a song, a sports score, the weather, or even a book to be read aloud.

After using the Internet-connected device for two months, Aanya, 16, started to worry that the Echo was eavesdropping on conversations in her Issaquah, Washington, living room. So she unplugged the device and hid it in a place that her mother, Anjana Agarwal, still hasn't been able to find.

"I guess there is a difference between deciding to share something and having something captured by something that you don't know when it's listening," Agarwal said of her daughter's misgivings.


The President for Black's Only: Obama collecting personal data for a secret race database

Quotation from Woodrow Wilson's History of the...Quotation from Woodrow Wilson's History of the American People as reproduced in the film The Birth of a Nation. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The most racist person ever in the White House- and this includes Woodrow Wilson!


A key part of President Obama’s legacy will be the fed’s unprecedented collection of sensitive data on Americans by race. The government is prying into our most personal information at the most local levels, all for the purpose of “racial and economic justice.”


Unbeknown to most Americans, Obama’s racial bean counters are furiously mining data on their health, home loans, credit cards, places of work, neighborhoods, even how their kids are disciplined in school — all to document “inequalities” between minorities and whites.


This Orwellian-style stockpile of statistics includes a vast and permanent network of discrimination databases, which Obama already is using to make “disparate impact” cases against: banks that don’t make enough prime loans to minorities; schools that suspend too many blacks; cities that don’t offer enough Section 8 and other low-income housing for minorities; and employers who turn down African-Americans for jobs due to criminal backgrounds.


Big Brother Barack wants the databases operational before he leaves office, and much of the data in them will be posted online.


So civil-rights attorneys and urban activist groups will be able to exploit them to show patterns of “racial disparities” and “segregation,” even if no other evidence of discrimination exists.  MORE


America, we are mentioned in the Bible - and it's not pretty!

By Bob Barney

Several years ago now, I wrote a new translation of the Bible that took me more than four years to finish. The following is an excerpt of warnings to both Christians and the people of the United States of America. They are not from me but direct quotes from God and the Bible. I have, with poetic license, merged many warnings from different passages to bring clarity. I have combined God's warnings in Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28 also adding other prophetic verses from the Old and New Testaments including Christ and His apostles. 


USA in prophecyThere are two peoples that the Bible talks about and is written for. The first people, are the Children of Jacob (Israel), as they are God's chosen people. The second are Christians, an even higher order of the chosen people. Unlike the first group, Israel, anyone can be a Christian! Israelites do not imply that they are Christians. Many are, many are not. They are who they are by DNA; whereas Christians are who they are by invisible spirit; The Holy Spirit. However, many Christians are also Israelites, but most of those don't realize it! The nation of Israel is made up of12 nations! Nations are not small populations of tribal families. Germany, Iran, Russia, the USA are nations. One of the most misunderstood teachings of the Bible is the identity of Israel. Most people believe that this simply is another name for Jews. IT IS NOT! Yes, all Jews are Israelites, but not all Israelites are Jews! The children of Joseph are not Jews, nor are the children of Dan, Rueben, Issachar, Simeon, etc. These other nations have not and are not Jews! God told Abraham and later Jacob, that their descendants would never be able to be counted, because there would be so many of them. Are Jews that numerous? No they are not, and have never been! The promise of a huge large nation was given to the two sons of Joseph. God said that these two nations (the younger son becoming the 13th nation of Israel) would be the two most powerful nations to ever sit on the face of man's world. Too numerous to count, living in a “promised land,” flowing with milk and honey. What two nations fulfill God's world? The answer is simple. The people of America and those of Great Britain. If you are English, or an American of English, Irish, Scottish, Danish, Scandinavian, Dutch or French heritage, you too are Israelites, and every Bible prophecy that applies to “Israel” applies to you! The warnings to the children of Jacob applies to you, whether you are a Christian or not. You cannot escape your DNA no more than a Jew can. Check out my article on this subject in great detail here!


A GREAT TRIBULATION is coming. The Bible DOES NOT promise a pre-Tribulation Rapture! If you are alive during this time, you will go through this terrible event, Christian or not, so if we are living in the End Times, it may be a smart thing to be prepared! Again, the following are God's words, not mine..

The Unknown Wailing Wall In Jerusalem... Closer to HOLY OF HOLIES

There is a section of the Temple’s retaining wall far closer to the sacred Holy of Holies than the traditional site of prayer, and it’s open to all

image from cdn.timesofisrael.comThere is a section of the Western Wall far closer to the Holy of Holies on the Temple Mount than the traditional site of prayer and perhaps that much more sacred. It is called the “Small Wailing Wall” (hakotel hakatan) and is open to all. There is even room there for notes to God, while at the traditional site every nook and cranny is crammed full with tiny scraps of paper.

This important site is found off HaGuy Street inside the Old City walls, a byway replete with bustling markets and historic buildings. To get there, you enter the Old City at Damascus Gate, descend to the bottom and take the street on the left to HaGuy, which is bursting with colorful shops that range from women’s clothing stores to sweet-smelling spice stands. HaGuy street is crowded and has you rubbing shoulders with people from every possible walk of life.  MORE


image from www.wnd.comPope Francis, who was once heralded by followers of the Catholic faith everywhere – including in the United States – as a true reformer with express concern for the poor has now seen his favor fall among Americans, with recent polls painting in a most unfavorable light.

Gallup finds fully 16 percent see the pope unfavorably, compared to 59 percent who still see him through a positive lens. On surface, that may not seem significant, but when compared to the same poll taken in 2014, the pope’s numbers are down quite a bit. Then, 76 percent saw him in a favorable light.

Conservatives, especially, have lost admiration for the religious leader. Support from this camp has fallen by 27 percentage points in the last year; from liberals, it’s fallen 14 percent.

And among American Catholics in general, the pope’s favor fell from 89 percent to 71 percent, the Hill reported.

“[The decline] may be attributable to the pope’s denouncing of the ‘idolatry of money’ and attributing climate change partially to human activity, along with his passionate focus on income equality – all issues that are at odds with many conservatives’ beliefs,” said Art Swift, at Gallup.

Greece Euro Crisis Reveals That Germany Rules Europe

Der SpiegelDer Spiegel (Photo credit: Wikipedia)


Over the past week, we have seen the clearest, most naked display of German aggression since the end of World War II. Germany, of course, has been ruling the eurozone for years. Der Spiegel even called Germany the new “Fourth Reich” earlier this year. But for the most part, Germany has concealed its dominance behind a fig leaf of consensus.

That ended this week.

Last Sunday, the voice of the Greek people was loud and clear: Greece would not submit to German hegemony. On Monday, Germany ignored the referendum and unilaterally imposed its will on the Greek government. As noted by the EU Observer,“Monday, July 13, will go down in history as the day Greece lost its independence after 185 years of freedom, the day democracy died in the country that invented it .…”

From the left to the right, the mainstream media now sees what the Trumpet has been warning about for years. Greece is now a German colony. Here are some of the conditions Greece must now submit to:

  • European Union officials have veto power over new Greek laws.
  • The Greek government must repeal laws the EU officials do not like.
  • €50 billion (US$54.5 billion) worth of assets are to be taken from Greece and given to an independent fund. The fund will then sell them off.
  • Greece must reform pension and tax laws in line with what EU officials want.
  • The government must commit to automatic spending cuts if it isn’t making enough money.

These are the major changes. You could argue that some of them are good changes—or that Greece deserves such harsh treatment. But what you cannot argue, as theEU Observer notes, is that Greece is still a sovereign state!

If the bailout deal is implemented, it is Germany—not Greece—that controls Greece.

Black Pro-Confederate Flag Activist Dies in Car Accident After Confrontation With Group of Black Men

JACKSON, Miss. (TheBlaze/AP) — A black Mississippi man who often dressed in Confederate regalia to support the state flag has died in a one-car accident.

The Highway Patrol says 49-year-old Anthony Hervey was killed Sunday when the 2005 Ford Explorer he was driving left the roadway and overturned on Mississippi Highway 6 in Lafayette County. 

The vehicle’s owner and passenger in the car, Arlene Barnum, tells The Associated Press that Hervey swerved and crashed after another vehicle carrying four or five young black men pulled up alongside them, yelling and looking angry. Barnum, of Stuart, Oklahoma, said Hervey yelled something back at the other vehicle before losing control and crashing.

Barnum later uploaded a video to Facebook after the deadly crash:  MORE

The Future of Europe

By Bob Barney

WAKEUPWhat does the Bible have to say about Europe. After all, if there is a God, then wouldn’t God know what will happen in the future?  As Isaac Newton once said, the future is merely history that has happened yet. History to God, and our job to discover if God has informed us about it before hand. The Bible says that Europe will rise again in the very end time to become a dominate power in the world. Europe will replace the United States as the greatest superpower, but it will not replace our leadership. Europe will become a demon-posed, evil empire, ruled by an antichrist and under the authority of the Roman Church. America, on the other hand, is destined to become a conquered land, where the fragment of ancient Israelites living here, in captivity - with no freedom or rights. Aliens will rule the land, and we will be a nation in poverty and crime.

When we read the prophecies of Daniel 2, 7, 8 and 11 with the historical and prophetic contexts of Revelation 13 , 17 and 18, we read predictions from God that Europe will rise up one last time as a church-state union with significant power, based on future global economic impact.

Israeli Minister Blasts Iran Deal Clause Where the U.S. Helps Iran Protect Nuclear Facilities Against ‘Sabotage’

Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett this weekend blasted world powers for including in the comprehensive agreement with Iran a provision that in essence suggests that they, including the U.S., might protect Iranian nuclear facilities from future external threats, including “sabotage.”

Bennett was referring to Annex III of the agreement forged between Iran, the U.S. and five world powers which addressed issues related to nuclear security.

In the section titled “Nuclear Security,” the document states that those who negotiated the deal — the U.S., China, France, Russia, the U.K. and Germany — “and possibly other states, as appropriate, are prepared to cooperate with Iran on the implementation of nuclear security guidelines and best practices”:

Co-operation in the following areas can be envisaged:

10.1. Co-operation in the form of training courses and workshops to strengthen Iran’s ability to prevent, protect and respond to nuclear security threats to nuclear facilities and systems as well as to enable effective and sustainable nuclear security and physical protection systems;

10.2. Co-operation through training and workshops to strengthen Iran’s ability to protect against, and respond to nuclear security threats, including sabotage, as well as to enable effective and sustainable nuclear security and physical protection systems.

Bennett wasn’t the only one to sound the alarm, particularly, about clause 10.2.


Palace scolds Sun for publishing Queen's childhood 'Nazi salute' image

Many famous people were Nazi's.. But History was rewritten to protect them. Joe Kennedy, Prescott Bush, The Royal Family all had Nazi sympathies. 


Buckingham Palace scolded Rupert Murdoch's top-selling Sun tabloid on Saturday for publishing a previously unknown film from 1933 that appears to show Britain's Queen Elizabeth performing a Nazi salute as a young girl.


The black-and-white film from the year Adolf Hitler came to power purports to show future British king Edward VIII instructing his nieces, the current monarch Elizabeth, aged about six or seven at the time, and her three-year-old sister, Princess Margaret, how to perform the Nazi salute.


Dancing and smiling with little apparent understanding of the salute's significance as a sign of obedience to Hitler, the two young girls are encouraged by Edward to briefly perform the raised right-arm gesture in the grounds of Balmoral Castle in Scotland.


The Sun published the story and the 17-second film on its website under the headline "Their Royal Heilnesses". Edward also raises his arm, as does his sister-in-law, the Queen Mother.  MORE


Japan Moves to Allow Military Combat for First Time in 70 Years

Forward by Bob Barney:

We knew this was coming. Thanks to the USA not listening to Gen MacArthur!
Many today do not know this, but the Japanese Constitution was mainly written by Gen MacArthur and staff...The most important reform carried out by the American occupation was the establishment of a new constitution to replace the 1889 Meiji Constitution. In early 1946, the Japanese government submitted a draft for a new constitution to the General Headquarters, but it was rejected for being too conservative. MacArthur ordered his young staff to draft their own version in one week. The document, submitted to the Japanese government on February 13, 1946, protected the civil liberties MacArthur had introduced and preserved the emperor, though he was stripped of power. Article 9 forbade the Japanese ever to wage war again. This establishment of a Japanese war department was presented to the General by the prime minister, who said, "we can never again suffer Hiroshima and Nagasaki"--- to which MacArthur said that he would do everything possible to fulfill that wish.....  Today we are allowing this militarization to happen again and WAR in Asia will be the result.

General Douglas MacArthur warned us:  "Men since the beginning of time have sought peace. Various methods through the ages have been attempted to devise an international process to prevent or settle disputes between nations. From the very start workable methods were found in so far as individual citizens were concerned, but the mechanics of an instrumentality of larger international scope have never been successful. Military alliances, balances of power, Leagues of Nations, all in turn failed, leaving the only path to be by way of the crucible of war. The utter  destructiveness of war now blocks out this alternative. We have had our last chance. If we will not devise some greater and more equitable system, Armageddon will be at our door."

Japan Moves to Allow Military Combat for First Time in 70 Years

TOKYO — Defying broad public opposition and large demonstrations, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe won a crucial vote in Parliament on Thursday for legislation that would give Japan’s military limited powers to fight in foreign conflicts for the first time since World War II.

Mr. Abe’s party and its allies in the lower house of Parliament approved the package of 11 security-related bills after opposition lawmakers walked out in protest and as demonstrators chanted noisily outside, despite a gathering typhoon. The upper chamber, which Mr. Abe’s coalition also controls, is all but certain to endorse the legislation as well.

The vote was the culmination of months of contentious debate in a society that has long embraced pacifism to atone for wartime aggression. It was a significant victory for Mr. Abe, a conservative politician who has devoted his career to moving Japan beyond guilt over its militarist past and toward his vision of a “normal country” with a larger role in global affairs.  Continue Reading.....


Jehovah’s Witnesses take to the streets as busy heathens are rarely home

The church requires its 8 million followers to actively spread the good news about God and Armageddon – and they say that loitering in shopping centers, stations and parks is the way to find new believers..

image from take up position outside train and underground stations in all weather, smartly dressed, courteous and smiling. They are sometimes called God-botherers or Bible-bashers – but this army of polite, freshly-laundered missionaries neither bother nor bash. They may stretch out a hand to offer a pamphlet to commuters streaming past, but they rarely accost anyone.

In fact, on the rare occasions when a passer-by does show interest, the proselytisers seem faintly surprised. “Could I have one of your pamphlets,” I ask a young woman outside a London railway station. “Of course,” she replies – but I have to make a further request for a second title, and at no point does she try to engage me in conversation.

Jehovah’s Witnesses – for indeed, it is they – are stepping up their presence in city centres across the UK in an effort to attract converts to a church that claims more than 8 million adherents worldwide. Best known for door-to-door evangelism and persistent attempts to engage householders in conversation about God, Witnesses are increasingly to be found in shopping centres, stations, parks and squares in at least 13 cities in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. In London, more than 1,000 people regularly participate in “public witnessing”, handing out 6,000 brochures, 20,000 books and 100,000 magazines each month. In other cities, the number of volunteers averages around 200.  MORE

Israel and Saudi Arabia present united front over Iran deal

The nuclear deal with Iran caused fury in Israel and consternation around the region at the likely increase in influence and resources of a newly enriched Iran.

Most telling was the loudest expression of support. "I am happy that the Islamic Republic of Iran has achieved a great victory by reaching an agreement," President Bashar al-Assad of Syria said in a message to his Iranian opposite number, Hassan Rouhani.

"In the name of the Syrian people, I congratulate you and the people of Iran on this historic achievement."

Israel and the Sunni Arab world have set aside old grievances to stand together against the West’s engagement with Iran.

The more strident denunciations came from Israel, which regards Iran as a direct threat. Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister, said the country would not be bound by what he called a "stunning historic mistake".

"Israel is not bound by this deal with Iran," he said in a televised address hours after the conclusion of the accord. "Iran continues to seek our destruction and we will defend ourselves."

Germany, Greece and the Fight for the Euro

Der SpiegelDer Spiegel (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

For the last five years Germany has dominated the eurozone in what Der Spiegelcalled an “economic … Fourth Reich.” Its power has been astonishing, forcing out heads of state and dictating the laws of its southern vassals. No one has dared fight back. Until Sunday.

On July 5, the Greeks unleashed a fight for the eurozone, threatening Germany’s dominance.

We are at a new stage of the eurozone crisis. In the days ahead that may not be immediately obvious. The Wall Street Journal wrote, “The only certainty now is uncertainty.” There are a number of directions this could go. We could see a sudden escalation of the fight. Or Germany may give ground for now, postponing the major battles until later. There are even some signs that we could see a quick capitulation by Greece.

But unless there is a quick Greek surrender, Germany is now engaged in a fight that will radically transform its power.

Why? Germany’s weakness has just been exposed. It has been ordering around southern Europe. Greece just said no. Now the rest of Europe waits to see what Germany will do about it. 


Pope Continues to Bash Capitalism praise Socialism

ASUNCIÓN, Paraguay — His speeches can blend biblical fury with apocalyptic doom. Pope Francis does not just criticize the excesses of global capitalism. He compares them to the “dung of the devil.” He does not simply argue that systemic “greed for money” is a bad thing. He calls it a “subtle dictatorship” that “condemns and enslaves men and women.”

Beast6Having returned to his native Latin America, Francis has renewed his left-leaning critiques on the inequalities of capitalism, describing it as an underlying cause of global injustice, and a prime cause of climate change. Francis escalated that line last week when he made a historic apology for the crimes of the Roman Catholic Church during the period of Spanish colonialism — even as he called for a global movement against a “new colonialism” rooted in an inequitable economic order.   MORE


The real reason criminal wept when judge revealed they were former classmates

Like many teenagers Arthur Booth had dreams of a successful career. Outstanding at math and science he would tell friends and family he wanted to be a neuro-surgeon.

Sitting across from him in a classroom at Nautilus Middle School in Miami Beach Mindy Glazer also had ambitions.

She had set her sights on college - first she wanted to be a veterinarian, but then she decided she wanted to go to law school and a have career as a top lawyer.

As millions of people have seen in a heart-wrenching courtroom video only one of those students fulfilled their dream.

The former classmates came face to face when Booth, 49, appeared before Glazer in her current role as a bond hearing judge.

Extraordinary moment: Judge Mindy Glazer and Arthur Booth had not met in more than three decades when he appeared in her courtroom for a bail hearing. He is charged with burglary and fleeing police

Trump on top: Outspoken tycoon becomes frontrunner in Republican nomination race

Donald Trump has emerged as the frontrunner in the race for Republican nomination according to a new poll of likely voters

Donald Trump has emerged as the frontrunner in the race for Republican nomination according to a new poll of likely voters.  Donald Trump is now the frontrunner in the Republican nomination race, according to a new poll.  The tycoon has the backing of 15 per cent of likely Republican voters, a four point lead over Jeb Bush and Rand Paul, and six points ahead of Scott Walker, Marco Rubio and Mike Huckabee.  Trump also has the largest share of second preference votes, according to the Economist/YouGov poll, with 12 per cent of candidates choosing him as a backup, over Scott Walker on eight per cent.

Jeb Bush, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio were selected as backup candidates by seven per cent of voters, while Mike Huckabee trails on six per cent.  The shock lead for Trump has opened up  three weeks after he launched his election campaign with an astonishing attack on Mexican immigrants.  Promising to build a wall along America's southern border, he said rapists, drug dealers and killers were being allowed to flood into the country thanks to lax border controls.

While the comments led to several of Trump's lucrative business deals collapsing, it seems to have struck a chord with sections of the Republican voter base.

The poll shows Trump's approval rating is particularly high among Tea Party members, as two thirds of those who said they were backing him identified with the ideology.

PATRICK J. BUCHANAN About | Email Archive

The Oklahoma Supreme Court, in a 7-2 decision, has ordered a monument of the Ten Commandments removed from the state Capitol.

Calling the Commandments “religious in nature and an integral part of the Jewish and Christian faiths,” the court said the monument must go.

Gov. Mary Fallin has refused. And Oklahoma lawmakers instead have filed legislation to let voters cut out of their constitution the specific article the justices invoked. Some legislators want the justices impeached.

Fallin’s action seems a harbinger of what is to come in America – an era of civil disobedience like the 1960s, where court orders are defied and laws ignored in the name of conscience and a higher law.

Only this time, the rebellion is likely to arise from the right.


Rise of sea levels is 'the greatest lie ever told'

If one thing more than any other is used to justify proposals that the world must spend tens of trillions of dollars on combating global warming, it is the belief that we face a disastrous rise in sea levels. The Antarctic and Greenland ice caps will melt, we are told, warming oceans will expand, and the result will be catastrophe.

Although the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) only predicts a sea level rise of 59cm (17 inches) by 2100, Al Gore in his Oscar-winning film An Inconvenient Truth went much further, talking of 20 feet, and showing computer graphics of cities such as Shanghai and San Francisco half under water. We all know the graphic showing central London in similar plight. As for tiny island nations such as the Maldives and Tuvalu, as Prince Charles likes to tell us and the Archbishop of Canterbury was again parroting last week, they are due to vanish.  Read More..........

Pope Calls for New World Order - The Beast of Revelation and End Times Marches On

4 horsemanQUITO, Ecuador –  Pope Francis wraps up the first leg of a three-nation South American pilgrimage Wednesday after issuing an impassioned call for a new economic and ecological world order where the goods of the Earth are shared by everyone, not just exploited by the rich.

Francis will visit the elderly and give a pep talk to local priests before flying to Bolivia, where the environment, ministering to the poor and the government's tense relations with the Catholic Church are high on the agenda.

Bolivian President Evo Morales, an Aymara Indian known for anti-imperialist and socialist rhetoric, will greet Francis at the airport and join him for a speech to local officials and diplomats before the pontiff goes to the Bolivian city of Santa Cruz. The stop in La Paz is being kept to four hours to spare the 78-year-old pope from the taxing 4,000-meter (13,120-foot) elevation.

Francis and Morales have met on several occasions, most recently in October when the president, a former coca farmer, participated in a Vatican summit of grassroots groups of indigenous and advocates for the poor who have been championed by Francis. Their shared views on the need for wealthy countries to drastically change course to address climate change bump up against Morales' anti-clerical initiatives that have roiled relations with the local church.

Taking up the global warming issue in Quito on Tuesday, Francis pressed the arguments made in his headline-grabbing encyclical earlier this month that the planet must not be exploited by the wealthy few for short-term profit at the expense of the poor.

"As stewards of these riches which we have received, we have an obligation toward society as a whole and toward future generations," Francis said. "We cannot bequeath this heritage to them without proper care for the environment, without a sense of gratuitousness born of our contemplation of the created world."
