Homeland eyes special declaration to take charge of elections

This isn't good......

Even before the FBI identified new cyber attacks on two separate state election boards, the Department of Homeland Security began considering declaring the election a "critical infrastructure," giving it the same control over security it has over Wall Street and and the electric power grid.

The latest admissions of attacks could speed up that effort possibly including the upcoming presidential election, according to officials.

"We should carefully consider whether our election system, our election process, is critical infrastructure like the financial sector, like the power grid," Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said.

"There's a vital national interest in our election process, so I do think we need to consider whether it should be considered by my department and others critical infrastructure," he said at media conference earlier this month hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.   MORE


Now 30 BENGHAZI-related emails have been recovered from Hillary's server

The State Department says about 30 emails that may be related to the 2012 attack on U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya, are among the thousands of Hillary Clinton emails recovered during the FBI's recently closed investigation into her use of a private server.

Government lawyers told U.S. District Court Judge Amit P. Mehta Tuesday that an undetermined number of the emails among the 30 were not included in the 55,000 pages previously provided by Clinton. 

The State Department's lawyer said it would need until the end of September to review the emails and redact potentially classified information before they are released.

Donald Trump's campaign lashed out, asking what else might be lurking among the emails Clinton ordered deleted.

Andrea Tantaros is NOT a victim, says Fox News

Network hits back at host who claims it operates like 'a sex-fueled Playboy Mansion-like cult' in $50m lawsuit

(yet she had no problems being a "bunny" while employed!)

Former Fox News host Andrea Tantaros is not a 'victim' but 'an opportunist', the Fox News has said in its response to the sexual-harassment lawsuit she filed last week.

In that response, filed Monday in New York, the network is calling for an arbitration which it says is in accordance with her employment agreement.

The network notes that she is already a party to pending arbitration after having been suspended by Fox, which has accused her of breaching her employment agreement by writing a book without prior authorization by the network.

Tantaros last week sued the network, its ousted chairman and other top executives, claiming they retaliated after she detailed unwanted sexual advances made by her onetime boss, Roger Ailes.

Mediterranean diet better for the heart than taking statins, major study suggests

image from www.telegraph.co.ukMediterranean diet could be better than statins at reducing the risk of an early death for millions of Britons, research suggests.

Leading heart experts said patients should be prescribed the diet - rich in fruit, vegetables, fish, nuts, whole grains and olive oil - before being put on drugs.

In the first major study to look at the impact of the Med diet on survival of heart patients, experts found it cut the chances of early death by 37 per cent.

Previous research has found just taking statins cuts mortality by 18 per cent. Experts said the figures were not directly comparable, and that many heart patients could get maximum benefit by doing both.

But they said the results were so remarkable that the state should consider handing out free fruit and vegetables, or subsidising such produce, to encourage the public to change its eating habits. Seven million people in Britain live with heart disease.

The diet regime is already known to have a powerful protective effect against a number of diseases, including diabetes and cancer. 

Experts hailed the new findings, presented at the world's biggest heart conference in Rome, Italy, as “extraordinary”, showing that the diet was “more powerful than any drug”.

EXCLUSIVE - 'JFK assassination was an inside job'

Ver Plausable Story

Ex-government agent claimed 'JFK assassination was an inside job'

A former member of JFK's (left, moments before he was killed) security team known simply as 'Ron' told Oliver Stone of how one of his team members killed the president in November 1963. Dying from cancer, the ex-agent known only as 'Ron' wanted to share a secret he had only told his son. Stone (top right, on the set of JFK with Kevin Costner), who directed an Oscar nominated biopic about the president, said he was convinced by his 'military jargon' and intricate detail. Lee Harvey Oswald (bottom right) was accused of shooting the president from the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository before he was shot dead two days later.   EXCLUSIVE - 'JFK assassination was an inside job': Ex-government agent claimed 'someone from his team' killed the president in remarkable deathbed confession to director Oliver Stone


Government request to survey his property – read his brilliant response

SOURCE

So many people cave in and bend over backwards to accommodate the most ridiculous requests of federal and state governments, but this story is a reminder of how we all should respond when bureaucrats come knocking at our doors.

Recently, Oregon ranchers Larry and Amanda Anderson received a letter by the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife asking for permission to survey their land in order to track a nearly endangered species. The letter requested use of the landowners’ creek to document the amphibian life represented, specifically the foothill yellow-legged frog which is noted to have recently declined in population. If the Anderson’s agreed to give the department access, they were ensured as being responsible for “the conservation of this important species.”

But the Andersons weren’t exactly interested and noticed an opportunity to turn the tables on the request and apply a little “Golden Rule” justice, or at least doing unto the government as is so often done unto them.

The Andersons constructed one of the best come-back letters of all time. The only way to truly appreciate it is to read it in its entirety:

Letter-1-copy

Dear Mr. Niemela:

Thank you for your inquiry regarding accessing our property to survey for the yellow-legged frog. We may be able to help you out with this matter.

We have divided our 2.26 acres into 75 equal survey units with a draw tag for each unit. Application fees are only $8.00 per unit after you purchase the “Frog Survey License” ($120.00 resident / $180.00 Non-Resident). You will also need to obtain a “Frog Habitat” parking permit ($10.00 per vehicle). You will also need an “Invasive Species” stamp ($15.00 for the first vehicle and $5.00 for each add’l vehicle) You will also want to register at the Check Station to have your vehicle inspected for non-native plant life prior to entering our property. There is also a Day Use fee, $5.00 per vehicle.

If you are successful in the Draw you will be notified two weeks in advance so you can make necessary plans and purchase your “Creek Habitat” stamp. ($18.00 Resident / $140.00 Non-Resident). Survey units open between 8am and 3pm but you cannot commence survey until 9am and must cease all survey activity by 1pm.

Survey Gear can only include a net with a 2″ diameter made of 100% organic cotton netting with no longer than an 18″ handle, non-weighted and no deeper than 6′ from net frame to bottom of net. Handles can only be made of BPA-free plastics or wooden handles. After 1pm you can use a net with a 3″ diameter if you purchase the “Frog Net Endorsement” ($75.00 Resident / $250 Non-Resident). Any frogs captured that are released will need to be released with an approved release device back into the environment unharmed.

As of June 1, we are offering draw tags for our “Premium Survey” units and application is again only $8.00 per application. However, all fees can be waived if you can verify Native Indian Tribal rights and status.

You will also need to provide evidence of successful completion of “Frog Surveys and You” comprehensive course on frog identification, safe handling practices, and self-defense strategies for frog attacks. This course is offered online through an accredited program for a nominal fee of $750.00.

Please let us know if we can be of assistance to you. Otherwise, we decline your access to our property but appreciate your inquiry.

Sincerely,
Larry & Amanda Anderson

Pure genius and a testament to the Anderson’s resolve to stand up to an intrusive government.

Globalists Turn Libertarian Party Against Liberty

English: Gary E. JohnsonEnglish: Gary E. Johnson (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The elite, terrified of the potential impact of scandals and health concerns surrounding Hillary Clinton, are promoting third-party candidates in the hope they siphon enough votes from Trump to deny him the presidency in favor of Hillary.

Libertarian presidential candidate and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson recently indicated he is a believer in man-made “global warming” and endorsed carbon taxes under a plan he calls “free market carbon fees.”

“I do believe that climate change is occurring,” he said. “I do believe that it is man-caused” and “that there can be and is a free-market approach to climate change.” MORE


Mandatory Vaccination in CA

Judge Sabraw: here’s something you didn’t know about the DPT shot…

by Jon Rappoport | Infowars.com

image from hw.infowars.comFederal Judge Dana Sabraw is overseeing a lawsuit against mandatory vaccination in California.

So far, Sabraw has denied a petition to suspend mandatory vaccination for school children while the case moves forward. He believes tradition and history are on the side of forced vaccinations. That’s because he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Or he’s just making it up out of thin air.

As the LA Times reports: ““U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw in San Diego wrote that state Legislatures have ‘a long history of requiring children to be vaccinated as a condition to school enrollment, and for as many years, both state and federal courts have upheld those requirements against constitutional challenge’.”

I don’t see how Judge Sabraw’s opinion could be more ridiculous.

Why? Because ‘the long history’ he refers to is quite different.

The states have always upheld exemptions from vaccination on several grounds: medical waiver, religious objection, philosophical objection. Hello? THAT’S the tradition.   MORE


Prophecy—the Proof of God!

image from s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.comDid you know that today’s news—even tomorrow’s—has already been written? In fact, current and future headlines about the United States, the European Union, Germany, Russia, China and other nations were recorded more than 2,000 years ago!

It’s pretty hard for meteorologists to accurately foretell the weather even a few days in advance. But these ancient writers forecasted that Britain and America would rise and fall, that Germany would dominate Europe, that Catholic Europe would clash with radical Islam, and that Russia and China would grow in power and unity. They predicted other specific events that have already come to pass in history and are coming to pass now. And you can find all of these prophecies in one book: the Holy Bible.

How could biblical writers know the future? They had to be divinely inspired.

Herbert W. Armstrong estimated that a third of the Bible consists of prophecy. Fulfilled prophecy proves the existence of Almighty God! It proves that the Bible was divinely inspired, containing revealed knowledge from God that we could not otherwise discover. God challenges us to look within its pages and prove its inspiration by the irrefutable proof of fulfilled prophecy!

Probably the most important pursuit of our lives is to prove God’s existence and the inspiration of His written Word. Today, God is making His existence known to you by showing that His inspired Word—the Holy Bible—is absolutely dependable.

The German Navy Returns to the Pacific Ocean to Militarily Encircle China

Germany and Europe are re-arming and a STRONGMAN will appear!


Beast2BERLIN/BEIJING – In light of the escalating conflict in the South China Sea, the German Navy is, for the first time, participating in a large-scale maneuver in the Pacific Ocean. Mine clearance divers and other support personnel from the naval infantry (“marines”) stationed in Eckernförde, near Kiel, will be involved in the “RIMPAC 2016″ combat exercise, organized by the US Navy, over the next few days, training in various military operations in the Pacific. A total of 25,000 soldiers from 26 countries, coming from the main NATO powers and the most important US allies along the Pacific Coast of Latin America, in the South Pacific and in East and Southeast Asia will be participating. China is involved in some of the training measures, however, explicitly excluded from others. There is a question, if China will be invited to participate in subsequent RIMPAC maneuvers. At the same time, the US military is developing plans for operations, according to western military experts, against China’s defensive lines, erected on islands and artificial reefs in the South China Sea. Tension has been rising since yesterday’s decision by the UN’s Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague on a territorial dispute. The EU has begun discussing participation in naval patrols near the Chinese coast.

Discovery of Ancient Synagogue in Galilee Deemed ‘Very Important for Christians’

Synagogue-compressedJERUSALEM — An ancient synagogue recently discovered in Israel has been deemed an important find for Christians as it confirms text found in the New Testament.

The synagogue, uncovered in Tel Reches Peak near Mount Tabor in the Galilee, dates back to the second temple era. Researchers found a large room nine meters high by eight meters wide, which was lined with benches of limestone blocks. A foundational pillar was also discovered in the rubble.

“This is the first synagogue of its kind in the Galilee villages,” Dr. Motti Aviam, a researcher at the Kinneret Institute for Galilean Archaeology, told YNet News. “In Migdal, for example, there is a synagogue but that is a big city. Here we are talking about a magnificent agricultural area about four Dunam in size where buildings are decorated with frescoes and stucco articles.”

Google has been accused of burying internet searches about an infamous list of mysterious deaths and murders of people allegedly connected to the Clintons.

The search engine altered an algorithm to prevent searches for 'Clinton body count' from auto-completing, InfoWars reports.

Yet when internet users begin to enter the phrase on the likes of Bing or Yahoo search engines, the phrase auto-completes as the top result.

On Google, stories about the Clinton body count are buried under the top results about car repair shops in Clinton.

ISIS Has A New Focus: Killing Christians And Bombing Churches Wherever They Can Find Them

ISIS Has A New Focus: Killing Christians And Bombing Churches Wherever They Can Find Them

If you are a Christian, ISIS wants to kill you. Our politicians keep telling us that our battle with ISIS is not a “religious war”, but to ISIS it most certainly is.

As you will see below, ISIS has a new focus. They are very clear about the fact that they intend to kill as many “citizens of the cross” as they possibly can, and they plan to bomb churches wherever they can find them. In a previous article, I explained how an entire church in the U.S. ended up on an ISIS kill list, and we just saw in France that they are willing to strike anywhere and at any time. Religious targets now appear to be a top priority for ISIS, and that means that every church and every Christian in the western world needs to start thinking differently about security.

Let’s start by taking a look at what is happening in Africa. Boko Haram’s brutality has made headlines all over the planet, and the infamous terror organization has pledged complete loyalty to ISIS at this point. In the past, Boko Haram has hit both Christian and Muslim targets, but now the new leader of Boko Haram is promising to following ISIS guidelines and to focus primarily on bombing churches and killing Christians

Muslims War on the West and Civilization!

Police confirmed they have received 22 reports from women saying they have been attacked during the We are Stockholm event. 

Officials said seven complaints came on the festival’s first day on Tuesday this week, with another 15 reported by Thursday.

Stockholm police added the figure was expected to increase as the event is still ongoing.

They also refused to disclose the nationality of the suspected assailants.

Police spokesman Kjell Lindgren said: “Many report the incidents a while after the assault happened, so there is reason to believe the figure will increase.”

The official said the majority of the reports had involved men groping girls in the crowd.

Mr Lindgren added police had identified the assailants in about half the reported incidents as he said it is believed the same person had committed several assaults.

Police officer Mats Eriksson said the reported attacks had happened while the artists were on stage.

Jerry Falwell Jr.: Trump is the Churchillian leader we need

August 19 at 9:36 PM

Jerry Falwell Jr. is president of Liberty University.

image from img.washingtonpost.comIn the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections, American voters were forced to choose between a liberal Democrat and weak establishment Republicans. Democrats won both times. In the 2010 and 2014 midterms, tired of the leftist agenda, voters sent an unmistakable message to Washington: Republicans took control of the Senate and filled more seats in the House than at any time since 1929. Still, nothing changed.

In 2016, we have a clear choice.

This moment is historic because Donald Trump is not another establishment Republican.

We have lived through nearly eight years of weak leadership from a president who did not sign the charter to create the Islamic State but whose policies had the intended or unintended effect (we will be debating that for decades) of breathing life into the lungs of the terrorist group. President Obama and Hillary Clinton most definitely signaled to Islamic State leaders that they had no intention of seriously challenging them, or even of calling radical Islamic terrorism by its name. Instead, Obama and Clinton pulled our troops out of Iraq, drew and then quickly erased a red line in Syria and tried to convince us that unverifiable pinpoint drone strikes (after leaflet warnings) would win the war against the Islamic State.

All of this was enabled by a feckless establishment Republican Congress.

The policies of Obama and Clinton have made the world unstable and unsafe and created a world stage eerily similar to that of the late 1930s. We could be on the precipice of international conflict like nothing we have seen since World War II. Obama and Clinton are the Neville Chamberlains of our time. The deal to make $150 billion available to Iran, the leading state sponsor of terrorism in the world and a nation committed to the destruction of Israel, clearing the way for Iran to become a nuclear power, reminds me of Chamberlain’s deal with Hitler in 1938, when the British prime minister declared “peace for our time.”

MARK OF THE BEAST!!! - Updated!

---- By Mike Exton (July 30, 2016 Edition)

image from marianneclements.orgIn the book of Revelation (the last book of the Holy Bible) we are sternly warned against receiving the mark of the BEAST (i.e. the Antichrist!). But what exactly is the MARK OF THE BEAST? And does this mark have anything to do with the NAME of the BEAST or the number 666? Or, is the mark of the Beast something totally different & separate from the name of the Beast and the number 666? And what exactly is the name of the Beast anyway? Is it an individual, a nation, a group of nations, or a church? And what about this mark—is it a LITERAL, PHYSICAL MARK? Or does it instead have a figurative, symbolic meaning? 

Let’s start off in our quest to answer these questions by first turning to Revelation 13:16-17. Here we are told that the Beast “required everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a MARK on the right hand or on the forehead. And no one could buy or sell anything without that MARK, WHICH WAS EITHER THE NAME OF THE BEAST OR THE NUMBER [666] REPRESENTING HIS NAME” (NLT). So this Scripture makes it perfectly clear that the mark of the Beast is simply either the NAME of the Beast or the NUMBER that represents his name. Therefore, having the MARK of the Beast on you is the same as having the NAME of the Beast on you (or the NUMBER that represents his name—666!). 

NUMER OF THE BEAST—666! 

But why the number 666? How does this number represent his name? Well, let’s let the Bible answer that question. Revelation 13:18 (LB) — “…the numerical values of the letters in his name add to 666.” This Scripture plainly shows that 666 is just the NUMERICAL SUM VALUE of the NAME of the Beast! For example, take the name “VIX.” If we use “Roman Numerals” then V = 5, I = 1, & X = 10. Then if we add up the numerical value of each letter of this name (5 + 1 + 10) we get 16. Therefore, Vix couldn’t possibly be the Beast because his name only adds up to 16 (while the name of the beast will add up to 666). But if Vix isn’t the Beast, who is?

WHO IS THE BEAST?

So WHO is this Beast (i.e. the Antichrist)? Is it a United European Superpower (a revived “Holy” Roman Empire) as some teach? Or is the Beast the LEADER of this revived system? The Beast is symbolic of BOTH—both the empire and its leader! But first and foremost it stands for its LEADER. To prove that it stands for the end-time political leader of this soon-coming system let’s turn to another Scripture in the book of Revelation. Revelation 19:20—Then the BEAST was captured, and with him the false prophet…. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone” (NKJ). This Scripture clearly shows that the Beast represents an end-time INDIVIDUAL, for both he and the false prophet are thrown into the lake of fire!

LITERAL, PHYSICAL MARK?

But what exactly is the mark of the Beast, the mark of this end-time political leader? Will it be a PHYSICAL, LITERAL MARK (or is this mark just a metaphor, having some kind of hidden, mystical meaning)?

The mark of the beast will DEFINITELY be a literal physical mark! In Revelation 13:16 & 14:11 several different translations of the Bible (GW, NOG, EXB, NEB, & the JB) state that the mark of the Beast will be “BRANDED” on human beings. The AMPC, NABRE, & the EXB state that the mark of the Beast will be STAMPED on people. But I like the way the Living Bible translates these two verses the best, as it declares that the mark of the Beast will be “TATTOOED” on humans! But regardless if the mark of the Beast is branded, stamped, or tattooed, all of these translations unanimously agree that the mark will be a LITERAL PHYSICAL MARK that others will easily be able to see!

RECEIVING MARK = ALLEGIANCE TO SATAN!

If you read the book of Revelation very carefully (especially chapter 14) you will notice that anyone who WILLINGLY receives the mark of the Beast will be severely punished by God. But God most certainly will NOT punish someone who has this mark PHYSICALLY FORCED upon them, nor will He punish someone who UNKNOWINGLY receives this mark (as some conspiracy theorists teach)! The person has to KNOWINGLY, WILLINGLY ACCEPT THE MARK.

 

But anyone who WILLINGLY AND KNOWINGLY allows the mark of the Beast to be placed on his or her body (either on their right hand or on their forehead) will be going directly against God! Instead of obeying their Creator, they will instead be obeying Satan! They will in essence be pledging their ALLEGIANCE and their loyalty to Satan the devil (see Rev. 13:16 in both the AMP & EXB translations of the Bible)! And those who do so will be sternly punished by God! And they will be without excuse, for not only will there be two witnesses (or prophets) who tell them not to worship the Beast (or his statue) or receive his mark, but an angel from heaven will also command the inhabitants of the world not to do so (Revelation 14:9)!

NAME OF THE BEAST? 

So, what is the name of the Beast? And who will this end-time political leader be? Whoever he is, one thing we know for sure, the letters of his name will add up to 666! But can anyone think of a better name than ROMAN?

First of all, “ROMAN” can be translated as “LATEINOS” in the Greek language. (But why use the Greek language? Because most of the New Testament was originally written in Greek—including the book of Revelation). In the Greek language “L” represents the number 30, “A” is 1, “T” is 300, “E” is 5, “I” is 10, “N” is 50, “O” is 70, and “S” is 200. Add them up (30 + 1 + 300 + 5 + 10 + 50 + 70 + 200) and what do you get? 666!

Secondly, if his name were “ROMAN,” it would be similar to the false trinity doctrine as it would represent three things in one. Not only would it be the name of this end-time political leader, but it also would represent the ROMAN Empire as well as the ROMAN (Catholic) Church.

WARNING! 

No matter what you do in the future, NEVER (under any circumstances whatsoever!) receive the mark of the Beast or worship him (i.e. the Antichrist) or his statue!!!

“Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard... the Antichrist is coming... The man of sin... the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped... He will even sit in the temple of God, claiming that he himself is God” (1 John 2:18 NKJ; 2 Thess. 2:3-4 NKJ; 2 Thess. 2:4 NLT).

“Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. And it was granted to him to make war with the saints [TRUE Christians] and to overcome [conquer] them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. And all who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have NOT been written in the Book of Life...” (Rev. 13:6-8 NKJ).

“If anyone worships the beast [i.e. the Antichrist] and his image [i.e. his statue], and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. And he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb [i.e. Jesus Christ]. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever, and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Rev. 14:9–11 NKJ).

It WAS a ransom after All

The administration that makes Nixon look like an apostle of Christ, has done nothing but lie about everything to everybody!

The Obama administration said Thursday that a $400 million cash payment to Iran seven months ago was contingent on the release of a group of American prisoners.

It is the first time the U.S. has so clearly linked the two events, which critics have painted as a hostage-ransom arrangement.

State Department spokesman John Kirby repeated the administration's line that the negotiations to return the Iranian money — from a decades-old military-equipment deal with the U.S.-backed shah in the 1970s — were conducted separately from the talks to free four U.S. citizens in Iran.

But he said the U.S. withheld the delivery of the cash as leverage until Iran permitted the Americans to leave the country. 

Speaking on CNN Thursday night, Kirby pushed back at those who interpreted what he said today as confirmation that the U.S. paid 'ransom' to Iran.  

'First of all this is Iran's money,' he said. 'No. 2 I think the way ransom works is you have to pay first and then you get your hostages back, and that's not what happened here.' 

 
Admission: John Kirby, the State Department spokesman, said Thursday that paying $400 million to Iran had been 'contingent' on release of prisoners held by the regime

Where Does Russia Fit in End-Time Bible Prophecy?

image from www.ucg.orgMore than two decades after the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia is very much back in the news—and not in a good way. Recent aggressive moves are raising fears of a renewed Russian expansionism. How might this play out in Bible prophecy?

Russia has been in the news a lot lately—mostly for negative reasons. Ukraine, once a part of the Soviet Union, has been rocked by turmoil from Russian-backed factions. In 2014 the Crimean peninsula, also part of Ukraine, was taken over and annexed by Russia, violating a 1994 treaty in which Russia had committed to respecting Ukraine’s existing borders.

There is good news for Russia—and the rest of the world. Jesus Christ is returning to put an end to human politics, greed and war.

Now a part of Eastern Ukraine is in armed conflict, and Ukrainian troops are fighting pro-Russian forces aided and armed by Russia. Europeans and other neighbors are quite alarmed by this aggression, and they fear it can spill over to other European territories neighboring Russia, such as Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

Fearing more Russian aggression, the president of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, recently called for the formation of a united European army, since “a common army among the Europeans would convey to Russia that we are serious about defending the values of the European Union” (Andrew Sparrow, “Jean-Claude Juncker Calls for EU Army,” The Guardian, March 8, 2015) .

Is Russia preparing for nuclear war?

Putin May think so - but in reality all he is doing is pushing Europe to Go Nuclear!

In yet another troubling sign for America's tense relations with Russia, U.S. intelligence officials say Putin has began construction on new nuclear-proof underground bunkers.

Russia began building 'dozens' of underground bunkers across the country several years ago, the Washington Free Beacon reported citing US officials.

The U.S. and Russia have been working together to get rid of their nuclear weapons since the end of the Cold War, but the revelation coupled with Russia's recent surge in missile production suggests they are preparing for conflict.

'Russia is getting ready for a big war which they assume will go nuclear, with them launching the first attacks,' Mark Schneider, a former Pentagon nuclear policy official told the Free Beacon. 'We are not serious about preparing for a big war, much less a nuclear war.' 

Few details about the new nuclear bunkers have been released, but Russian state-run media says they are being built in Moscow as part of a new national security strategy. 

Russia built several similar underground bunkers during and right after the Cold War both in Moscow and in the Ural Mountains. 

Russia's new nuclear defense strategy is reportedly costing the country billions, and there are questions about whether some of that money may have come from U.S. aid.   

U.S. intelligence officials say authorities in Russia are building new underground bunkers to survive a nuclear war. Above, a Cold War-era nuclear missile silo in Saratov, Russia

America on the BRINK of a CIVIL WAR between White and Black

USA in prophecyAfter the Financial Crisis, Civil War? Get Ready to "Leave Your Region ..."-3/2 TruthOut/Le Monde, by Claire Gatinois-- According to the European think tank, LEAP/Europe 2020, two factors make the US a likely candidate for civil violence: the absence of a strong social safety net and the presence of hundreds of millions of firearms. Will the economic and financial crisis degenerate into violent social explosions? Tomorrow, will there be civil war in Europe, the United States and Japan? That's the rather alarming conclusion that the experts of European think tank LEAP/Europe 2020 lay out in their latest bulletin dated mid-February. ...After the Financial Crisis, Civil War?

Civil unrest: Liberals most at risk

Should civil unrest break out over economic or social factors (or both), your rank-and-file liberals will likely be hit harder than most. Think about it. These are people who will have done nothing to prepare for such a scenario; either they don’t believe it can happen, or they assume the government will step in and “take care” of them if it does. Should their children want for food and no one provides any, they’ll perceive themselves entitled to take it from someone else. This will add to the mayhem, of course, but it will serve the government’s purposes quite well.

Many liberals live in major cities. Should full-scale chaos erupt, these will be the absolute worst places to find oneself. During Hurricane Katrina, the police cleared out of much of New Orleans for fear of heavily armed gangs. I suppose that liberal dads will be able to sell off their daughters to gangs for protection should things get too desperate.   Read the whole article here

George Soros

JERUSALEM – Philanthropist billionaire George Soros has funded opposition organizations in Egypt and throughout the Middle East, where anti-regime chaos has already toppled the pro-Western leader of Tunisia and is threatening the rule of President Hosni Mubarak, a key U.S. ally.

Mohamed ElBaradei, one of the main opposition leaders in Egypt, has also sat on the board of an international "crisis management" group alongside Soros and other personalities who champion dialogue with Hamas, a violent offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Brotherhood, which seeks to spread Islam around the world in part by first creating an Islamic caliphate in Egypt, now backs ElBaradai, who has defended the group in the news media the last few weeks.

ElBaradei suspended his board membership in the International Crisis Group, or ICG last week, after he returned to Egypt to lead the anti-Mubarak protests.

Soros is one of eight members of the ICG executive committee.

U.S. board members include Zbigniew Brzezinski, who was national security adviser to Jimmy Carter; Samuel Berger, who was Bill Clinton's national security adviser; and retired U.S. ambassador Thomas Pickering, who made headlines in 2009 after meeting with Hamas leaders and calling for the U.S. to open ties to the Islamist group.

Another ICG member is Robert Malley, a former adviser to Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign who resigned after it was exposed he had communicated with Hamas. WND first reported Malley had long petitioned for dialogue with Hamas.

Why the Protestant Reformation FAILED!

By Frank M. Walker, from a tract by Raymond Clark, D.D.

image from mormonbeliefs.orgBlessed are they that do His commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city,” Revelation 22:14.

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free,” John 8:32.

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge...seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God. I will also forget thy children,” Hosea 4:6.

...here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus,” Revelation 14:12.

It seems that most mainstream Christians cannot fully grasp the tremendously important role God’s Holy Sabbath has played in church history. For instance, what part did the Sabbath play in the Reformation? The reformers paid a terrible price for their rejection of the seventh-day Sabbath and for their refusal to accept it as an article of revolt against the Catholic Church. They flatly rejected the Sabbath rest of the Scriptures. They claimed to follow the written word only (the Bible as we now call it), and to refuse the traditions of the Church. (Sunday is a tradition of the Roman Church that has not one text word of divine authority.)

Martin Luther was not the staunch advocate of truth that many suppose. He is highly praised for claiming to follow the Scriptures only. He stated that he was discarding all tradition. He and the reformers (so-called) were challenged at the termination of the Council of Trent by the Archbishop of Reggio. He said all their claims of discarding tradition were false as long as they retained Sunday. This rejection of the seventh-day Sabbath was also a tradition instituted by the Catholic Church. This change in the day of worship is nowhere to be found in the Scriptures.

Sabbath Truth Presented, But Rejected by Luther

The mystery of Piltdown Man is solved: Charles Dawson, was behind the hoax

Evolution. like Global Warming is a fraud - Bad science - which has a devious purpose... To fool the unsuspecting into rejecting God, The Bible and common sense. Just like Global Warming today, evolution has a history of fraud and downright lies. Learn the Plain Truth. Evolution is NOT SCIENCE!

It was one of the greatest scientific hoaxes in history, fooling the most eminent minds at the time into believing a previously unknown human ancestor had been found in an English gravel pit.

But new research may have finally solved the 100-year-old mystery of who was responsible for creating the faked remains that became known as Piltdown man.

Analysis of the collection of fossilised bones found across two sites at Piltdown, East Sussex, in 1912 points to a single individual as being behind the forgery.  

The notorious hoax of Piltdown Man (jawbone pictured) has been shown to have been perpetrated by a single person - the man who discovered the 'fossil', Charles Dawson. In fact, it appears he created it with a jawbone from an orang-utan and human craniums
