timelapse footage traces Central Park through the seasons in two minutes

This incredible timelapse project shows how one of the world's most iconic green spaces is a park for all seasons.  Mesmering footage of Central Park in New York City chronicles how the leafy oasis transforms over the course of a year...   But the project was no mean feat for Tyler Fairbank, who spent two whole years (eight seasons) just shooting the footage.

image from i.dailymail.co.ukWhether it be winter snow in the background, autumnal leaves on the trees, or pedestrians rowing boats in glorious summer sunshine, all can feature in a single frame of Mr Fairbank's flowing video. 

The short final clip features a series of well-known landmarks, changing flawlessly from spring into winter and back again.  Included in the video are Sheep Meadow's open playing field, the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir and the historic Gapstow Bridge set against the Manhattan skyline.

'The Seasons of Central Park chronicles the incredible seasonal and atmospheric changes that take place every year throughout Central Park,' said Mr Fairbank, aged 28.


Private island off Sicily with 17th century watch tower hits the market for 2 million

image from i.dailymail.co.uk

A rugged private island off the coast of Sicily that boasts a 17th-century watch tower and medieval ruins has hit the market for £1.7million.

The island, called Isola delle Femmine, is an uninhabited, wild 37-acre atoll, almost 1,000 feet from the mainland, close to the city of Palermo.   It is located within a protected marine park that is a hit with both scuba divers and snorkellers due to its vibrant marine life and the ancient Roman relics that lie on the sea bed. The island's focal point is a watch tower on top of a grassy hill that had been part of a defense network around Sicily against pirates.  The building has been abandoned, but the agent listing the island, Romolini Immobiliare, says there is scope to fully restore it.

Other features of the island include ancient Greek and Roman stones as well as a private beach.  Its name translates into English as 'island of women' as legend has it that 13 Turkish criminal maidens were cast adrift on the island as punishment for their bad behaviour.  The island is being sold by Italian countess Paola Pilo Bacci, whose family have owned the land since the 1600s.  She is selling up as the family no longer use it for holidays.

image from i.dailymail.co.ukThe island had at first been put on the market for over £3million (3.5 US) but the asking price has now been lowered to interest more buyers.  Agent Riccardo Romolini, who is marketing the property, told CNN Travel: 'The price at first was €3.5million (£3million) but given nobody showed up we've now lowered it to a flexible range between €1 and €3million (£857,000 and £2.5million), open to offers and negotiations.

'Anywhere close to €2 million (£1.7million) we'd be very interested.'

In the listing, the agent also suggests that the island could be the perfect 'trophy asset'. 


Probiotics may DAMAGE your stomach

1Good gut bacteria in probiotic yoghurts could evolve in the stomach and become harmful, scientists fear.

The bacteria are marketed as being beneficial for our digestive system and, in the process, improve our health.     But in a study on mice, bacteria in the probiotics ate the protective coating of their intestines - which can lead to irritable bowel syndrome.   They also showed a level of antibiotic resistance, a growing threat to humanity that is considered as severe as terrorism.    Scientists said the probiotics appeared to evolve the most in unhealthy stomachs, working against them rather than improving them.  

Researchers from Washington University School of Medicine in St Louis, led Dr Gautam Dantas, studied a stain of bacteria called E. coli Nissle 1917 (EcN).   It has been used to combat diarrhoea for a long time - especially in children - after being discovered over 100 years ago.  The researchers used mice with different gut microbiomes. One had no gut bacteria at all, while the others had various healthy and unhealthy guts.   MORE


SHOULD CHRISTIANS OBSERVE EASTER OR THE PASSOVER?

Easter1

Editor's Note: TUESDAY (April 2) night is Passover. It is a Christian holy day. The following explains....

Easter is the greatest of all "Christian" observances, closely followed by Christmas. It supposedly celebrates the resurrection of Christ. WHY, then, did Paul command the Gentile Christians to "show the Lord's DEATH" till He come? Jesus Christ Himself celebrated His famous "Last Supper," with His disciples, proclaiming that a bit of unleavened bread represented His body; that a sip of wine represented His shed blood. This was in commemoration of His DEATH for the sins of all mankind. Why is there no command anywhere in the Bible to celebrate His resurrection? Why did not the apostles celebrate it? Is the "Passover" only "Jewish," and therefore not Christian? Should Christians observe Easter? Does the Bible command Easter observance? You will be astonished at the answers! Here, from the pages of your own Bible is the PLAIN TRUTH about EASTER and the Passover!

by Garner Ted Armstrong   [printer-friendly]     [pdf format]

Easter3 You were born into a "ready-made" world. You had no voice in how it is structured; its customs, traditions, religions, or politics. It took you about two years to learn the language of your parents; about six years to learn your own indigenous alphabet; about seven or eight years to learn to read simple sentences, and to begin to write.

However, from your earliest years, long before you learned to read or write; long before you learned what "research" or "study" was, you heard about the tooth fairy, Santa Claus, the Easter bunny, and watched, no doubt, hundreds of cartoons and kiddy shows on television. From your earliest years on this earth, your parents were inculcating into your mind the traditions, customs, fables, superstitions and assumptions of their own upbringing.

The point is, you first learned of "Easter," or other religious customs through your parents or guardians. You did not research history, carefully weigh the facts, and make a reasoned decision to observe "Easter."

Millions of adults in the western world of professing Christianity have memories of those sleepy mornings when, all excited to be dragged from bed at perhaps 3:00 or 4:00 a.m., they were dressed in frilly little frocks or a new little boy's suit, complete with clip-on bow tie; white patent-leather shoes, greens and yellows—the colors of spring—and trundled off in the family car to an open air coliseum, or perhaps to a hilltop, to join with hundreds or thousands of others in an "Easter Sunrise Service."

You didn't know what "Easter" was. Only that it sounded a little like a point on the compass. Of course, the sun rose in the East. Maybe that was it? Or was it merely the opposite of "Wester"? Most likely, if you are like millions of others, you never became curious enough to go to a major encyclopedia and look up the term. We tend to take our environment for granted.

Have you ever looked into the history and origins of Easter?

The dark side of 'the resistance'

Joe Kovacs rips the mask off the force behind rebellion

By Joe Kovacs
Summer-of-resistance-map-600


Since the presidential election of 2016, the one in which a political outsider by the name of Donald Trump came from seemingly out of nowhere to become the highest elected official in the land, the powers that be who thought they were in control have been on a mission that can be summed up in a single word.

Resistance.

Those who oppose the agenda of President Trump (and his supporters, for that matter) have made no secret about the fact they're looking to staunchly withstand anything and everything proffered by this commander in chief.

In fact, in 2017, shortly after Trump's inauguration, they initiated a national campaign called "Resistance Summer," seeking "to bring Americans together to resist the powers that are trying to rig the system against working families. Our work is inspired and influenced by 60 years of civil rights organizing and resistance. We're hiring organizers across the country to build the Democratic resistance."

Trump himself has taken notice, saying on Halloween 2018, "Their whole theme: Obstruct. Resist. What the hell do you get out of that?"

We have seen the resistance manifest in all kinds of ways, ranging from name-calling and harsh rhetoric to people getting shot because of their political viewpoint. Here are some high-profile examples since Trump won the presidency:

Pop star Madonna said in a march in Washington, D.C.: "I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House. But I know that this won't change anything."

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, was kicked out of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, merely because she works for President Trump.

A Julius Caesar play was reworked to have a Donald Trump look-alike getting repeatedly stabbed instead of Caesar.

Actor Robert De Niro had not-so pleasant words in his resistance of Trump, saying, "I'd like to punch him in the face," and then on national TV saying, "I'm going to say one thing: F*** Trump."

Stand-up comedian Kathy Griffin held up a bloody, severed head that was made to look like a decapitated version of Trump during a photoshoot. She now sells a line of merchandise all proclaiming "F*** Trump."

Aides and advisers to Trump have been investigated for alleged collusion with Russia, with some admitting to or being convicted of crimes as a result of a special counsel probe.

A supporter of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders shot Republican Congressman Steve Scalise and four others on a Virginia baseball field, as the gunman was allegedly looking to kill his political opponents.

U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., had a less-than-civil call to action to resisters: "If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. You push back on them. Tell them they're not welcome anymore, anywhere!"

Brett Kavanaugh, after being nominated by Trump for the U.S. Supreme Court, faced severe resistance with claims of attempted sexual assault by a woman who could not remember key details of the alleged incident.

Barack Obama's Attorney General Eric Holder said of Republicans, "When they go low, we kick 'em."

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton defended Democrat tactics of fierce resistance, saying: "You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about."

These are just a few of the well-known comments and incidents.

Radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh  discussed the resistance to Trump, noting: "They call this the resistance, but this isn't resistance. We're so far beyond resistance now. These people are doing much more than resisting. They are literally turning the law upside down. They are ignoring the law when it applies to them. They are accusing people who have not broken the law of having broken the law and forcing those people to either cop pleas or defend themselves, and, in the process, go broke and lose their homes, destroy their families. All of this on no evidence that anything of the original charge that the election was tampered with and is therefore illegitimate, there's no evidence for it.

"It continues unabated. And as these people fail in every element that they try to get rid of Trump, what then happens? Trump becomes even worse. Trump is Hitler. Trump is no different than Mao Tse-tung. Trump is hideous. They keep throwing out these inane, insane, crazy allegations in their unstopping attempt, their never-ending attempt to create anti-Trump public opinion which will then facilitate them getting what they want, and that is him thrown out of office."

Now that everyone is well aware of the resistance, you might wonder about its source. After all, the viciousness is taking place at numerous levels across America and appears to be highly organized. And while there may be big-name politicians and plenty of money being spent to feed this vitriolic behavior, there is likely something else at work here you may not have realized.

There is an unseen player who is doing what he does best, resist. In fact, his name means "Resister."

The individual I'm referring to is none other than Satan the devil. Yes, the Hebrew word Satan actually means "an adversary, one who resists."

I realize most people in today's modern world don't think about this character as they carry on their everyday life, going to work, paying the bills and raising their family. But Satan is a very real individual, who is actually resisting and opposing all those who are trying to be obedient to God and His divine laws.

In case you're not familiar with the Bible, Satan was not always an enemy. In fact, Scripture says he was a cherub, which is an angel, and a perfect one at that.

As God says of him: "You were an anointed guardian cherub, for I had appointed you." (Ezekiel 28:14)

The very next line in Scripture indicates all was well with him until something foul was detected in his character.

"From the day you were created you were blameless in your ways until wickedness was found in you." (Ezekiel 28:15)

Chapter after chapter of the Bible describe what wickedness is, and it can be summed up in a word that virtually everyone is familiar with, but they're not quite sure what it means. And that word is "sin."

You can try this experiment for yourself, asking a variety of people what the definition of sin is. You'll most likely get a different answer from each individual. But there is one place in the Bible where the meaning of the word is clearly spelled out. That verse is in the New Testament, in 1 John 3:4. Here it is from two translations:

sin is the transgression of the law (1 John 3:4 KJV)

sin is lawlessness (1 John 3:4 CSB)

Simply put, when anyone breaks any law or instruction from God, that person is sinning, engaging in wickedness, iniquity or evil. It's as simple as that. Opposing God and doing what He says not to do is an act of RESISTANCE or rebellion against the Maker of everything.

Thus, Satan, the original resister, was perfectly fine in God's eyes until he resisted and engaged in thoughts and activities contrary to the laws of God. He became wicked by resisting and rebelling against God.

As Job explained, "The wicked are those who rebel against the light. They do not recognize its ways or stay on its paths." (Job 24:13 CSB)

And since "God is light, and in him is no darkness at all" (1 John 1:5), the Bible makes it more than obvious that rebelling against the light (God) is wicked.

Satan has been leading a rebellion against God, convincing a large number angels to join him in his resistance.

"So the great dragon was thrown out ​— ​the ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the one who deceives the whole world. He was thrown to earth, and his angels with him." (Revelation 12:9 CSB)

The resister has been hard at work using all kinds of lies and deception to trick mankind, confusing people on virtually every issue, from the existence of God Himself to the ultimate destiny of human beings, which is to become part of God's own family, the children of God, to rule and reign with Him for eternity.

Satan has been resisting for thousands of years, and there's no indication he'll give up his rebellion and repent of his wickedness, even though a main message of Jesus is to love your enemies. Yes, we're told to love those who resist.

Perhaps what we're seeing in our physical world today in America is a picture of what God has dealt with for a very long time: the individuals He created are acting in a stiff-necked fashion resisting peace, law and order. We see lawlessness all around us, and even some groups are targeting law-enforcement agencies as somehow being oppressive, when the opposite is true. It's the ones who want to maintain law and order who are being attacked, in the same way God is the ultimate Lawman dealing with wicked opposition from those who don't wish to obey His instructions.

The apostle Paul reminded everyone: "So then, the one who resists the authority is opposing God's command, and those who oppose it will bring judgment on themselves." (Romans 13:2 CSB)

We all need to realize the world as we know it is not going to last forever. There is a time coming soon that God will be fed up with humanity's resistance and rejection of His ways, and He will put an end it to it in a fashion that won't be pretty.

As one famous prophet predicted: "There will be a time of distress such as never has occurred since nations came into being until that time." (Daniel 12:1 CSB)

It might be wise if we ask ourselves if today's so-called "resistance movement" is a manifestation of what's taking place in the unseen realm. Is it a picture of the demonic resistance by the devil against God Himself, for perceived injustice of some kind?

If it is, then we should be careful to make sure we're always on God's side, and never resist our loving Creator.

BUSH 41 Had a Mistress Book Claims

Barbara Bush was so devastated and humiliated over George's affair with aide she

Former First Lady and family matriarch Barbara Bush was once described as 'a silver-haired pearl draped howitzer'. But a combination of blows in her life in the mid-seventies sent her spiraling into a depression that almost led to her taking her own life. Among the causes of her despair was a woman who would stay by her husband George's side for more than 12 years. Her name was Jennifer Fitzgerald (circled in main, sitting beside George and in front of Barbara in 1975) and she was his aide – and according to some, his mistress, reveals Susan Page, author of The Matriarch: Barbara Bush and the Making of an American Dynasty out next Tuesday. When George was assigned to head the embattled CIA in 1975, Barbara 'fell into darkness'. 'Barbara Bush found herself falling into the worst personal crisis she had faced since daughter Robin had died more than two decades earlier,' writes Page. 'Overwhelmed by pain and loneliness, she contemplated suicide. She would pull over to the side of the road until the impulse to plow into a tree or drive into the path of an oncoming car had passed'. Barbara is pictured with George in 1987, bottom left, and in 1978, top right. 


Great balls of fire! Shocking moment vintage Cadillac goes up in flames

 

This is the shocking moment a vintage Cadillac went up in flames and rolled down a hill before crashing into a nearby front yard.

In footage captured yesterday in Chattanooga, Tennessee, two friends who were supposed to take the car out for a drive when they noticed smoke coming from under the bonnet.

They jumped out of the car before suddenly caught flame and grew into a blazing fire.

The fire department arrived and hosed the car down but moments into the dousing, the brakes burned according to the person recording and the car rolled down the hill

Trump orders agencies to prepare for potential EMP attacks

The Plain Truth has been on this for years. An EMP strike could kill millions!

TimerunningoutPresident Donald Trump signed an executive order Tuesday ordering federal agencies to take steps to protect the country from potential electromagnetic pulses.

The order calls on federal agencies to coordinate in preparations to prevent and react to an electronic pulse, or EMP, which is a blast of electromagnetic energy that can damage the U.S. electric grid and other infrastructure.

“Today’s Executive Order — the first ever to establish a comprehensive policy to improve resilience to EMPs — is one more example of how the Administration is keeping its promise to always be vigilant against present dangers and future threats,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said.

OBAMA'S BRENNAN PROBLEM ABOUT TO EXPLODE?

LiarBarack Obama may not yet understand the effect the Mueller Report will have on his legacy. Caught up perhaps in the details of who said what to whom, he may overlook for the moment the report’s most significant consequence.

His Praetorian Guard has been disarmed. The media will no longer be willing and able to protect Obama as they have for the last 15 years.

Obama’s greatest point of vulnerability is his relationship with former CIA chief and collusion conspirator John Brennan.

For the last two years, the media have lauded Brennan as a fearless truth teller. Just two weeks before the report was released, in his role as national security analyst for NBC and MSNBC, Brennan was promising “more indictments.”

Brennan expected Trump family members to be the ones indicted, specifically for colluding with Russia. Two days after the report was released, a seemingly contrite Brennan was claiming he may have received “bad information.”

The Three Mile Island nuclear accident 40 years ago

Washington (AFP) - The 1979 accident at the Three Mile Island power plant, the worst in US history, claimed no lives but provoked an outcry over the country's nuclear electricity program.

Caused by mechanical, design and human errors, the partial meltdown registered a five on the International Nuclear Event Scale that peaks at seven, the rate given to the Chernobyl (1989) and Fukushima (2011) disasters.

Here is a rundown of what happened on March 28, 1979 at one of the two reactors at the Three Mile Island Generating Station in eastern Pennsylvania.

- Early morning alert -

An alert was declared at 4:00 am after a fairly minor malfunction in the water reactor's cooling system that was linked to a filter.   MORE


We Can Never Trust the Media, FBI, or Intelligence Community Again

Trump, Mueller

How can any free-thinking person ever again trust the media, the FBI, or the intelligence community after the debunking of this two-year Russia Collusion Hoax?

This thing was not only a total hoax, a total lie, and total fabrication based on absolutely nothing, and not only a total hoax, a total lie, and total fabrication based on lies, it was also something that everyone knew was a total hoax, a total lie, and total fabrication.

Hoping Dirty Cop Robert Mueller would find something-anything, or that President Trump’s approval rating would dive to where he’d be easy to impeach, the media lied-lied-lied; the Dirty Cops in the FBI leaked-leaked-leaked, and the elders and veterans of the intelligence community infested our TVs screaming about treason and indictments as they swore up and down the Trump campaign had never been spied on or wiretapped — when they knew damn well it had.

That was an actual conspiracy, an actual act of collusion to overturn a legal and constitutional presidential election — which means it was a conspiracy to screw the American people. Even if you didn’t vote for Trump, even if you hate Trump, it was still a crime against your God-given right to choose your own leaders.

And this attempted coup against We the People is only the latest outrageous hoax  committed by these three corrupt institutions.

Look at the media’s history over the last five or so years….

  • Trayvon Martin Murdered By Racist White Man
  • Michael Brown Yelled “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!” Before Racist Cop Murdered Him
  • Brett Kavanaugh: Serial Rapist
  • The Racist White Boys from Covington High School
  • Trump Can’t Defeat Hillary
  • Trump Is a Russian Manchurian Candidate

As for the FBI, even before those Dirty Cops began a series of criminal leaks and acts of perjury and the leaking of classified documents, they had already disgraced themselves by letting a true criminal, Hillary Clinton, off the hook as they played footsie with Obama’s corrupt Department of Justice.

Behind the Green New Deal: An elite war on the working class

image from thenypost.files.wordpress.comThe "New" Green Deal isn't new at all, and it is not a deal!   It is communism, that has failed in every place it was ever tried.  The lie about "global warming" just adds to the scam being perpetrated on the left in an effort to rob you of your God granted rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  The left want you to become their slaves, just as the Russians and Chinese (their heroes) enslaved the working masses in their nation.

The communist in France tried this new deal, and it has led to violence for months now, and if the Democrats had their way, the streets of France would be found in American cities, giving them the excuse to declare Marshall Law, and enslave all Americans.

Tuesday’s 57-0 Senate vote against the Green New Deal, with 43 Democrats voting “present,” shows how Republicans can win on this nutty issue. But their attacks haven’t quite yet hit the bull’s-eye.

At the heart of the GND is a plan to outlaw hydrocarbon energy and produce all electricity from wind, solar and other renewables. This isn’t just wildly impractical. It would deliver a crippling blow to the economy. Coal, oil and gas left in the ground are jobs and income buried forever, causing a permanent contraction in the productive capacity of the economy. The GND would thus be a declaration of war on blue-collar America, imperiling the Trump recovery and its half a million new manufacturing jobs.

Republicans have decried the GND as “socialist.” But whatever its real-world outcomes, and they were horrendous, at least the old socialism in theory sought to advance the economic interests of the working class. The GND does the opposite.   MORE


Senate votes down Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal as DEMZ refuse to vote

The final Senate vote was 57 nays and 43 present  (nay means you are really for it, but don't have the guts to vote)

Democrats slammed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for holding a 'sham' vote on the matter - it was a non-binding resolution, meaning it had no force of law, and needed 60 votes to advance in the legislative process, which was an impossible task given Democrats only have 47 votes in their corner. 

Most of the Democrats voted 'present' in protest while Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin, who represents the red state of West Virginia; Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona; and Doug Jones of Alabama voted no, as did Independent Sen. Angus King of Maine, who caucuses with Democrats.

The final vote was 57 nays and 43 present.

New Populist Party Goes from Zero Seats to Largest Party in Dutch Election

Foreword:  Again, as mentioned below, The United States, Great Britain, Western Europe and Scandinavia are all constantly mentioned in the Bible, these nation make up the peoples of "Lost Israel" and are the scattered lost people of God.  The rise of populism in Europe will not result in the same benefits as the rise in populism in America.  Europe is headed towards another Hitler-like despot.  The fruits of populism in Europe will be a tyrant (called the Beast in the Bible), a great False Religion and war and destruction.  

image from media.breitbart.comA new populist, Eurosceptic party has achieved the remarkable feat of going from zero seats to becoming the largest single party in the Dutch Senate in a single election, as a young politician likened to a “Dutch Donald Trump” beat seasoned professionals in Wednesday’s poll.

Thierry Baudet’s Forum for Democracy party, which has gained attention for its Euroscepticism, campaigned against open borders politics and against what he calls “climate-change hysteria,” winning 86 seats across the Dutch regions. The victory put his party ahead of even the ruling mainstream conservative People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD), which achieved 80 seats.

Forum was founded in 2016, and this is the first regional election the party has contested. Remarkably, in some Dutch regions Forum was so unexpectedly successful it won the right to appoint more elected members than they actually have registered candidates living in those areas.

Dems Just Like Satan

("Huckabee"/YouTube)

By Jason Devaney    |   Saturday, 23 March 2019 09:24 PM

Author David Horowitz compared Democrats to Satan in an interview Saturday night, saying they have the same "arrogance" as the serpent did in the Garden of Eden.

Horowitz, whose latest book is "Dark Agenda: The War to Destroy Christian America," was on "Huckabee" and did not hold back on his criticisms of the American left.

"What did the serpent say to Adam and Eve? 'If you eat of that tree, you shall be as God.' Every leftist has that arrogance," Horowitz told host Mike Huckabee.

"They think they can remake the world. Just look at the Green New Deal that this idiot woman is proposing."

THE 1ST 'GREEN NEW DEAL' FLOPPED

STEPHEN MOORE About | Email | Archive

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal has been widely ridiculed for its massive disruption to the economy and a price tag of tens of trillions of dollars.

Climate hoaxNow some Democrats are countering that this isn’t the first Green New Deal in America. They point to President Barack Obama’s fiscal stimulus plan of 2009-2010 as an example of how spreading around tax dollars for green energy programs can be good for the environment and the economy.

Think again. That isn’t at all what happened during the Obama “Green New Deal.” By every objective criteria confirmed by every independent investigation, the avalanche of green dollars in Obama’s first term was a colossal waste of money. The House Oversight Committee’ exhaustive investigation of the $14 billion renewable energy loan guarantee program exposed widespread “dysfunction, negligence and mismanagement by DOE officials.” The report concluded the Obama administration routinely “turned a blind eye” to the mismanagement.

In all, Obama (and George W. Bush before him) spent some $100 billion on giveaways to wind and solar power producers, electric cars and for weatherizing homes and buildings. It was arguably one of the largest corporate welfare experiments in American history, enriching an industry and its investors. Most of this money went for research to speed up commercial applications of green energy or was pipelined directly into bank accounts of individual companies.

Melting glaciers are exposing the bodies of dead climbers on Mount Everest

Melting glaciers on Mount Everest are exposing the bodies of hundreds of climbers who have died while trying to scale the peak. 

Almost 300 people are thought to have died on the 29,000-ft mountain and many of their bodies are extremely well preserved in the cold climate - even decades after they died. 

Many are still buried under the Himalayan ice but mountaineering experts believe global warming is starting to reveal them. 

As this year's spring climbing season begins, some of the bodies are now being removed from the Chinese side of the slopes, BBC News reported.

Another new Toyota RAV4 spontaneously caught fire

It’s safe to say that few people if any prepare for the possibility that their car might spontaneously catch fire or anticipate what will happen after the fact.

Still, Stephani and Shaun Klamm say that they would have expected a bit more urgency from Toyota. Instead, the San Diego family tells ConsumerAffairs that Toyota has been surprisingly cavalier about a sudden fire that the family says nearly killed Shaun and the couple’s two children.

The family’s ordeal started early in the morning on March 12. Shaun was on his way to take his two children to school when he thought he had forgotten his cell phone. They headed back to the house to look for it. As it turned out, the device had been in his pocket the whole time.

Now running late, the children got back in the car and Shaun started to drive away. They weren’t far from the house when his 12-year-old daughter began screaming. She told her father to pull over. It was then that Shaun noticed that smoke was coming out of the steering column, from under the dashboard. The kids grabbed their backpacks and jumped out of the car as he quickly pulled over. Below is a video they took:   MORE


Facebook stored millions of passwords in plain text viewable by employees

NEVER put 1 ounce of personal information on FB unless you make it up - use a Facebook ONLY password

Facebook has another privacy headache to contend with.

The company reveals that millions of Facebook users had their passwords stored in plain text and searchable by Facebook personnel, going back to 2012. Facebook said the discovery was made in January as part of a routine security review.

In a statement, Pedro Canahuati, Facebook’s vice president of Engineering, Security and Privacy, said the passwords were not accessible by the general public and there is no evidence that Facebook employees abused their access. He said the issue has been fixed and that affected users will be hearing from Facebook.

“We estimate that we will notify hundreds of millions of Facebook Lite users, tens of millions of other Facebook users, and tens of thousands of Instagram users,” Canahuati said.

Facebook Lite is a version of Facebook predominantly used by people in regions with lower connectivity.

The technology blog KrebsOnSecurity cites a source as saying as many as 20,000 Facebook employees may have access to the unencrypted passwords. The company says there is no evidence any employee intentionally searched for a user’s password.   MORE

  In her book,  "Roosevelt and Stalin", Susan Butler tells the story of how the leader of the capitalist world and the leader of the Communist world became more than allies of convenience during World War II. They shared the same outlook for the postwar world, and formed an uneasy yet deep friendship, shaping the global  stage from the war to the decades leading up to and into the new century. The book makes clear that Roosevelt worked hard to win Stalin over, by always holding out the promise that Roosevelt’s own ideas were the best hope for the future peace and security of Russia. Stalin, however, was initially unconvinced that Roosevelt’s planned world organization, even with police powers, would be strong enough to keep Germany from starting a new war. 

Wow!   You don't see to many people talking about that do you?  The democrat icon Franklin Roosevelt met with, worked with and even helped one of the biggest butchers of all time stay in power.  It could be said that because America helped to save the USSR from Germany, FDR also helped Stalin murder tens of millions of people, and keep eastern Europe in chains and slavery for 50 years!  The story gets even worse.

Another book, "Roosevelt and Stalin: Portrait of a Partnership" describes the friendship that developed between the two men, and history shows that the friendship bothered our true ally Winston Churchill!  For one thing, Roosevelt pushed for the US to recognize the Soviet Union well before Pearl Harbor, despite the pesky matter of communists despising capitalists and vice versa. And he  supported US help for Russia when “most Americans still thought of Europe’s problems as being as far away as the moon.” The two men bonded by making fun of an annoyed Churchill, and Stalin even teases FDR by acting offended to learn he’s called “Uncle Joe” behind the scenes!  How's that for dissing your allies?

You won't hear anything about this fact of history because:

1 Our modern educational system won't allow such news to fly.  They have dumbed down American children for at least 50 years now.

2 The hate Trump media doesn't want you to know the plain truth about American history, if that history doesn't fit its narrative

3 The DEEP STATE is at war with ordinary Americans, trying to take away our liberties at every chance they can

4 Big Business, Big Politics, Big Banksters and Big Government want to enslave the American worker and force them to work for "Mexican" wages--- maybe even 'Chinese" wages, and that is the Plain Truth!

Since the end of the Cold War there has been considerable reviewing of President Roosevelt’s policies toward the Soviet Union. Most notable has been the essay of Professor Arthur Schlesinger Jr., who has argued that the 1989 counter-revolution in Central Europe vindicates President Roosevelt’s wartime diplomacy, which, he says, had been criticized for its “naiveté” about Stalin. 

Wait, did you read that?c Professor Arthur Schlesinger Jr., says FDR was “naiveté” about Stalin!   Wow, yet we are to believe that Donald Trump deserves to be impeached!

Wake up America. Your media, your government, the globalist, and your police state hates you!

Tucker Carlson on Mueller Probe Conclusion: ‘The People on TV Have Been Lying to You’

Friday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson reacted to reports that Department of Justice special counsel Robert Mueller was submitting his the probe’s report to Attorney General William Barr, which signified the conclusion of the probe’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Given there were no indictments tied to alleged collusion between 2016 Trump campaign officials and the Russian government, Carlson concluded the many had been misled by some who have taken to television to make claims of Trump-Russia collusion.

“The people on TV have been lying to you,” Carlson said. “They will deny it now. They will tell you it was always about Trump’s taxes or some foreign real estate deal or hush money he paid to a girlfriend. That’s a crock. This investigation was always from day one about collusion with Russia. About betraying this country. They told us that for years.”


Retired Army General Warns of ‘Balkanization’ in U.S. Military

FOREWORD:  The United States is a nation that is talked about extensively in the Bible; and the future is not that good.  We are eventually going to break up and become a captive nation (see who we are), here is yet another headline from today's news showing us that God's words will come true.

image from media.breitbart.comFROM BREITBART.COM.    Retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Sean MacFarland was at an event in Washington this week to discuss his experience training Iraqi and Syrian militaries. But he ended up delivering a warning for the U.S. military: “Identity politics is a cancer.”

It was a surprising comment given that retired generals typically do not weigh in on politics, but also since the topic of his discussion, hosted by the right-leaning American Enterprise Institute, was “Building Better Arab Forces.”

During the discussion, MacFarland spoke of navigating cultural and religious differences in trying to rebuild an Iraqi military in the wake of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS)’s offensive in 2014.

But during the Q and A portion of the discussion, he was asked by an audience member to weigh in on how politics and polarization of the country was affecting the U.S. military.

MacFarland replied:

My last job in the Army — I was the deputy commander for Training and Doctrine Command, so all the recruiting, and all the initial entry training was under Training and Doctrine Command, and it is something that we do focus on. We call it ‘soldierization.’ We assimilate people into the Army, and teach them what it’s like to be part of a cohesive whole.

And many people come from — well soldiers come from all walks of life and we bring them all together, and it’s remarkable that after basic training or their initial training, how acculturated they become. I mean we used to talk about the melting pot in schools in America. I don’t know if we still do anymore. My guess is we don’t.

And I mean I just heard a statistic recently that about 80 percent of American kids consider themselves as just plain old Americans before they enter high school, and about two-thirds of them about halfway through college become hyphenated-Americans.

We remove those hyphens in the Army, in the military. You know, ‘You’re a soldier, next question.’ You know, we all wear the same patch on our right shoulder — the American flag. And that’s what it’s all about.

And that’s a process that most armies do not go really through. You probably don’t have to go through it in some armies where everybody is mono-linguistic, mono-ethnic, or whatever, you know, Finland, or some place like that. But in the United States we do. They should go through it in Arab armies, but they don’t. And that’s a significant difference.

Is it getting harder in the U.S. military to assimilate everybody and get everybody on the same — playing for the same team? Yea, it is. Identity politics is a cancer. And an army is a reflection of its society. And we have seen what Balkanization looks like. I’ve been in the Balkans multiple times and in Afghanistan and Iraq. And it’s a dangerous path that we’ve moving along, and eventually it’s going to become too hard for us to fix in the military.
