The rise and fall of NASCAR

Why racetracks are removing hundreds of thousands of seats

The infield of the Charlotte Motor Speedway on race weekend is a universe unto itself. Here, you enter the Vatican of Internal Combustion, a microcosm ruled by the forces of V-8 power and flat-out speed.

Multicoloured race cars blast around the speedway’s steep grey banks at more than 330 km/h, and the infield resembles a cross between the Woodstock festival and aRoad Warrior set. Race fans, encamped here for days, arrive by the thousands in jumbo-sized motor homes, jacked-up Ford F-150s and old school buses with viewing platforms welded on top.

Steel scaffolds and deer hunting stands rise from the crowd like minarets, each topped with a group of partiers. A black, hemi-powered Ram pickup truck rolls past, loaded with shirtless revellers and a stack of beer coolers. A Confederate flag flutters from one of the chrome-plated exhaust stacks and it brings to mind what one writer said after visiting a NASCAR race at Talladega: “It has not come to the attention of eastern Alabama that the civil war ended.”

Where Does All of the Oil Come From?

Articles 4 Kids adjOil is a very important part of our lives.  We use oil to make gasoline and diesel fuels for our cars, trucks, trains, ships, planes and other forms of transportation.  Oil is also used to produce other products such as plastics that we use every day.

Oil reserves are found in many places throughout the world.  Mankind has been pumping millions of barrels of oil out of the ground for over a century yet there are still trillions of barrels of oil in reserves waiting to be extracted.  One barrel of oil is equal to 42 US gallons or to put it in another way, one barrel of oil is the same as 42 gallon jugs of milk.

Where does all of this oil come from and why is there still so much of it left?

Evolutionists want us to believe that most of the oil was produced by animals that have been buried over hundreds of millions of years.  The combination of dead bodies, heat from the earth and the pressure of being buried hundreds and thousands of feet deep all worked together over time to turn them into oil.

If that’s true and evolutionists believe in slow gradual processes, how do they explain trillions of dead animals all buried in massive graves hundreds and thousands of feet deep in the earth?

NASCAR sends its fans into a spin after launching scantily-dressed 'Monster Energy girls'

NASCAR fans have complained about the scantily-clad Monster Energy Girls on show at the start of the racing season.

Fans took exception to the revealing outfits worn by the models for the Daytona 500's new sponsor.

They claimed the tight leather tops made them feel 'uncomfortable' and were 'inappropriate' for family viewing.

NASCAR fans claimed the girls were dressed inappropriately and needed to wear more clothes

One observer on Twitter said: 'NASCAR and Monster Energy need to rethink those uniforms for the girls if they don't want naughty jokes.'

Lynn Smith said: 'Wow! Sprint Cup girls were replaced with Monster Energy hookers! Really? NASCAR, the purpose of these girls is unnecessary, always has been!'

Archaeologists plan a mission to explore the Ark of the Covenant

The search for the Ark that inspired the Indiana Jones blockbuster has been given a new lease of life.

The Ark of the Covenant, a wooden and gold-plated box, is believed to contain the famous stone tablets which bear the Ten Commandments.

But despite its fame, nobody has ever been able to find the sacred box.

Moses and Joshua bowing before the Ark of the Covenant, which was believed to be kept at the ancient site of Kiriath-Jearim, in west Jerusalem, for two decades

WHERE ELSE IS THE ARK RUMOURED TO BE KEPT? 

  • Mount Nebo: An ancient biblical text claims that the prophet Jeremiah buried the Ark in a cave on Mount Nebo. Mount Nebo is believed to be the site where Moses viewed the Promised Land. Mount Nebo is near the east bank of the Jordan River near Jerusalem.
  • Ethiopia: The Ethiopian Orthodox Church claims to possess the Ark. The sacred box is kept under guard at the Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion in Aksum.
  • United Kingdom: British author Graham Phillips claims that an English baron called Ralph de Sudeley found the Ark in Jordan and brought it back to his estate in Herdewyke, Warwickshire

Now, researchers from Israel and France are reigniting the quest to find the Ark by excavating a little-explored biblical site believed to have once held the lost artifact. The ancient site of Kiriath-Jearim, in west Jerusalem, will be opened up for the first time this summer. 

'The place is important for several reasons,' Professor Israel Finkelstein, from Tel Aviv University, told The Times of Israel.

'It's a large, central site in the Jerusalem hills that hasn't been studied until now. 

'It may be the only key site in Judah that hasn't undergone a systematic archaeological excavation.'

The Ark was stored at Kiriath-Jearim for two decades, according to the Book of Samuel.  The ancient site is referred to as a place of worship multiple times in the bible, and has various names including Kiryat Ye'arim, Kiryat Ba’al, Ba’alah and Ba’ale Judah.   Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-4223292/Ten-Commandments-search-reopened-Jerusalem.html#ixzz4YgjVlQ4y 


WARNING: Trump’s EPA Secretary Will Have ‘16,000 Employees Working Against Him’

This is why the EPA needs to be gutted and 75% of all employees be let go! BAN THE NAZI-LIKE EPA- IRS and OSHA!

image from cdn01.dailycaller.comPALM SPRINGS, CALIF. — When likely EPA Secretary Scott Pruitt walks into his first day at the office, “He’ll have 16,000 employees working against him,” Sen. James Lankford told a large gathering of libertarian donors Saturday evening.

“And I expect a flood of lawsuits over everything he does.”

Pruitt, who has been nominated to lead the EPA by President Donald Trump, is the attorney general of Lankford’s state, Oklahoma. He has faced fierce opposition from the environmentalist left.

Lankford, who chairs the Senate Oversight Subcommittee on Energy Policy, Health Care and Entitlements, was joined on stage by Sens. Mike Lee and Pat Toomey. Their panel, moderated by Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips, was during a dinner on day one of Charles and David Koch’s libertarian Seminar Network in Palm Springs, Calif.

Another Satanic Cult - Matthew 24 in today's News....

Inside 'The Family' cult led by Anne Hamilton-Byrne

Anne Hamilton-Byrne (pictured right) was the glamorous, charismatic and delusional leader of the notorious Australian sect dubbed The Family. One of the very few female cult leaders, she convinced herself and up to 500 followers she was the reincarnation of Jesus Christ. Under the influence of LSD, Hamilton-Byrne believed an apocalyptic war was imminent and that she had a duty to collect children from birth in preparation for a new world. She gathered young boys and girls - some through shonky adoptions, others born to cult members - and raised them as her own on a property in Lake Eildon in central Victoria in the 1970s and 1980s. 'We've received the call - and great things will be done,' she said. The identically dressed children (left and inset), with bleached blonde hair shaped into the same bob, were allegedly bashed, starved and injected with LSD by Hamilton-Byrne and other cult leaders in terrifying sect initiation rituals.


National Security Adviser Michael Flynn resigns

Bad News - Blood in the water will only get the anti-Trump sharks going for more

image from s1.yimg.comMichael Flynn, national security adviser to President Trump, resigned late Monday.

Flynn stepped down amid reports that he had misled administration officials about his communications with Russian ambassador to the United States Sergey Kislyak before the inauguration.

"In the course of my duties as the incoming National Security Adviser, I held numerous phone calls with foreign counterparts, ministers, and ambassadors," Flynn wrote in his resignation letter.

"These calls were to facilitate a smooth transition and begin to build the necessary relationships between the President, his advisors and foreign leaders. Such calls were standard practice in any transition of this magnitude."


Ark hunter: Christianity packed with paganism

Richard Rives, right, and son David hunting for the Ark of the Covenant in Jerusalem in 2003.

A Tennessee historian and author best known for his searches for the Ark of the Covenant – the box containing the Ten Commandments – is now challenging much of modern Christianity, claiming the traditional version of the faith has more in common with ancient paganism than actual biblical content.

"Today, it is amazing what is being presented as Christianity," says Richard Rives of Lewisburg, Tenn., who has just released a book and DVD collection titled, "Time is the Ally of Deceit."

"First century believers would have never accepted [today's practices]," the 56-year-old ark hunter told WND. "We must earnestly contend for the faith once delivered to the saints."

In his new book and videos, Rives goes on a history-packed journey beginning with the creation of the world and Satan's deception in the Garden of Eden, examining how worship of the sun god among ancient cultures influenced the worship of the true God of the Bible.

False Doctrine 4 - The Sabbath Day Abolished

http://www.end-times-prophecy.org/false-doctrines.html

Sabbath Commandment

Although I have labelled this as the sabbath day abolished, there are a few differing views and beliefs concerning the sabbath day throughout the mainstream Christian churches. Some believe that the sabbath day of the 4th commandment has been abolished completely. Some believe that the sabbath day has been changed from the 7th day of the week to the 1st. And others believe that we can keep any day as the sabbath day. But, you guessed it. They are all wrong, because the 7th day sabbath still stands exactly as per the 4th commandment today. Let me share with you an interesting statement made by Christ Jesus Himself:

Matthew 5:17-18 ...'Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.'

Now many Christians look at this verse and for some strange reason use it to defend their belief that Jesus "did away" with the ten commandments. And yet that is a clear contradiction to what Jesus actually said above. Look, Jesus said He DIDN'T come to destroy the law, He came to "fulfil". And that word fulfil in the original language actually means "to bring FULL MEANING" to the law. And the next verse is even more clear:

"Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law."

Do you see what Christ Jesus is saying here? It is so clear. One jot or tittle shall NOT pass from the law till the end of this world. What law? Read the rest of Matthew 5 and you will see that Jesus was talking about the ten commandments. Friends, if one jot or tittle has NOT passed from the ten commandments, then the 4th commandment concerning the sabbath day remains EXACTLY as it was, which means the sabbath day is the 7th day of the week (our Saturday), not the 1st (Sunday).

If you study the creation account, you will see that God instituted the seventh day sabbath BEFORE there was any sin in this world. Meaning He meant it to be an eternal weekly day of rest, which the prophecy of Isaiah 66:22-23 confirms. And the seventh day of the week is the ONLY day that God has ever blessed and set apart for holy use.

The mystery of the North Star: It is getting BRIGHTER!

Pleiades (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

Forward: It is funny how God keeps telling us that we are DUMB to Hos creation: In Job: Job 26:7, which says, "He spreads out the northern skies over empty space, he suspends the earth over nothing." Job 38:31-32  "Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? Or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?" God is saying, “Hey Job, you think you can keep Pleiades together? Well, I can!”

 

A team led by Scott Engle of Villanova University in Pennsylvania recalibrated historic measure ments of Polaris by Ptolemy in 137 C.E., the Persian astronomer Al-Sufi in 964 C.E., and others.

 

They investigated the fluctuations of the star over the course of several years, combing through historical records and utilising the Hubble Space Telescope.

 

The team found that Polaris is 2.5 times brighter today than in Ptolemy's time, which they say is a remarkable rate of change.

Revenge of the pigs: Animals rip apart a giant PYTHON - Video

This is why we have pigs on our farm- They are snake killers - even rattlesnakes!

A huge python was ripped to shreds by a pack of furious wild boars seeking revenge after the snake ate one of their young.

At least eight of the wild beasts descended on the reptile after he slithered into their home and gobbled up a piglet.

Completely outnumbered, the eight foot python did not stand a chance as he was surrounded by the boars and attacked from all sides.

The animals used their powerful jaws to bite into the snake's body, ripping the animal to pieces.

 


OSHA assailed for regulatory ‘overreach’ on family farms

image from totalroofingandconstruction.files.wordpress.com

HOPEFULLY TRUMP WILL END THE TYRANNY of OSHA, THE EPA, and IRS!

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) decision to enforce regulations on certain small farms amounts to “blatant overreach” that unfairly targets small farmers, a pair of Senate Republicans argues. 

Sens. Mike Johanns (R-Neb.) and Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) are calling on the Labor Secretary Tom Perez to rescind OSHA guidance clarifying that the agency intends to enforce regulations on farms with less than 10 workers. 

For decades, Congress has inserted language in appropriations bills prohibiting OSHA – an arm of the Labor Department – from enforcing provisions of the 1976 Occupational Safety and Health Act at farming operations with 10 or fewer employees.

Groundhog Day 2017: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know -YES it's Pagan

February 2 is Groundhog Day 2017. Learn about the history and origins of the holiday here and what Punxsutawney Phil has prognosticated: an early spring or more winter?

Groundhog Day was first officially established in 1887 by the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club. The club has monitored the event every year since. “Punxsutawney Phil” has been the name of the resident groundhog used for weather prognostication for the club since its inception, and the club jokingly claims that there has only ever been one Punxsutawney Phil.

However, the average lifespan of a captive groundhog is 9-14 years.    PAGAN ROOTS:MORE
