The NFL plans to perform or play the black national anthem before games this season, ESPN reports. 'Lift Ev'ry Voice And Sing,' traditionally referred to as the black national anthem, will be performed before 'The Star-Spangled Banner,' during the season opener on September 10, when the Kansas City Chiefs host the Houston Texans. The NFL, in collaboration with the NFL Players Association, is also considering featuring names of victims who suffered police brutality on uniforms, helmets or patches on jerseys. The decision comes as the league hopes to demonstrate 'a genuine commitment to the public, players and coaches and that player voices continue to be heard,' the source wrote in a text message 'This is key to educating fans, and becoming a prominent voice in the fight to end racism.' The NFL has recently displayed increased awareness about the issues of systemic racism, with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell admitting the league was wrong in how it approached NFL player protesting police brutality and systemic racism over the past few years..

On September 20, 1950, a US Navy ship just off the coast of San Francisco used a giant hose to spray a cloud of microbes into the air and into the city's famous fog. The military was testing how a biological weapon attack would affect the 800,000 residents of the city.
The people of San Francisco had no idea.
The Navy continued the tests for seven days, potentially causing at least one death. It was one of the first large-scale biological weapon trials that would be conducted under a "germ warfare testing program" that went on for 20 years, from 1949 to 1969. The goal "was to deter [the use of biological weapons] against the United States and its allies and to retaliate if deterrence failed," the government explained later. "Fundamental to the development of a deterrent strategy was the need for a thorough study and analysis of our vulnerability to overt and covert attack."

’Isn’t Coincidence’ Gay Characters Now Everywhere
Rise of the ’Queer Creators’
The increase of LGBTQ characters and themes popping up in TV shows made for children in the last decade is not an organic development. It’s the consequence of so-called “queer creators” pushing the LGBTQ agenda and working with major entertainment networks, writers, producers, showrunners, and directors to place sexualized themes into on-screen fare made for young audiences.

A growing number of Americans, it seems, are surprised at how fast we are descending from a free and liberty-loving society to one that gives every appearance of emulating any one of many failed socialist/communist states.
But still most cling to the idea that this can never happen here – right? Of course not – although, for example, not too long ago Venezuela was one of the most prosperous nations on Earth. But hey – as the saying goes – they just haven't done socialism/communism right. Seems no one has.
For years we conservatives complained about Obama – that he was a lawless president, he was despotic, that we've never seen anyone like him. How did he ever get elected?

NFL announce they will play the 'black national anthem' BEFORE the Star Spangled Banner during 'tentpole' 2021 season games and players will feature names of police brutality victims on their helmets
By Bob Barney
This is what the LORD Almighty says: “The fasts of the fourth, fifth, seventh and tenth months will become joyful and glad occasions and happy festivals for Judah. Therefore love truth and peace.” — Zechariah 8:19
Fasting in the Bible has been a longstanding practice, in some instances tied to the observance of key festivals and holy days, but also as a communal response to tragedies and a call to repentance. References to fasting can be found in the books of Samuel, Daniel, Ezra, Nehemiah, Psalms, and more. It was quite natural in ancient times for people to fast as part of their service to God. Spontaneous personal and communal fasts were also common.
Six official days, however, are also mentioned in the Bible as a time for fasting. So what are these fast days and why were they established to be observed for generations to come?
The first and most paramount of all fast days is Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Of all the fast days, this day alone was prescribed by God in the Bible. In Leviticus 16:29 we are commanded to “deny yourselves” on Yom Kippur. This included eating or drinking, washing or bathing, marital relations, wearing leather shoes, and applying luxurious oils. As the name of the day would suggest, denying ourselves is part of the process of attaining atonement on Yom Kippur. This is a fast of repentance, and appropriately, the day is spent mostly in prayer and introspection.
Yom Kippur is considered a major fast day, it has only one other counterpart — the fast of Tisha B’Av, the ninth of the Hebrew month of Av, which is the 5th month in God's year... This fast commemorates the monumental events of the destruction of both the First and Second Temple in Jerusalem — both of which occurred hundreds of years apart on the same exact day. In truth, this day was destined to be a day of calamity as, according to Jewish tradition, it was on this day that the 12 spies sent by Moses to see the Promised Land returned to the Israelites with a bad report, causing the people’s hearts to turn away from God. Because of that, God barred that generation from entering the Promised Land and sent them back into the desert to wander for another 40 years.
Both the First and Second Temples were destroyed on this day as well as a host of other Jewish tragedies throughout history: the defeat of Bar Kochba’s revolt, thus ending Jewish resistance to the Romans (135 CE); the expulsion of the Jews from Spain and the onset of the Spanish Inquisition (1492); and more recently, the deportation of Jews from the Warsaw ghetto to the Treblinka concentration camps (1942).
I often mention that God's calendar is NOT like any other calendar on earth today. It is not the Roman calendar that we follow, or the equally pagan Jewish calendar that many churches believe is the calendar of God. To read more about God's Calendar click here . There is a mistake that those who follow a Jewish calendar has made, and that refers to the word for new moon. That is a mistranslation, as the proper rendering should be NEW MONTH, as I did in The Plain Truth's Red Letter Bible.
The Hebrew word 'chodesh', which is Strong's Exhaustive Concordance simply means "new" or to "rebuild." Chodesh does not mean "new moon". It means 'new' with an implication that a month is about to begin again.
Originally, when the earth had a perfect 360 day rotation around the sun, and the moon's journey around the earth was exactly 30 days (today it is 29.5 days), new moons where on the new months. The calendar was in balance. However, probably after the flood, the weight of water slowed the earth rotational spin (this is NOT mentioned in the Bible) to 365.25 days a year and the moon's rotation to the present one of 29.5 days.
The ancients noticed that the months were no longer 30 days and the years were not 360 days, but now over 365. A calendar needed to be made to reflect this. Egypt made the first perfect calendar, one Moses was very familiar with, which had 12 - 30 day months and then 5 days at the end of the year that did not count. This is also seen in Enoch's calendar (see illustration on left).God's calendar was like the Egyptian one except that year no longer started on the first day of summer, but on the first day of spring. Springtime is the birth of the new year in nature, as morning is the start of the day as well. The term for new moon became "new month" as the new moons and new months no longer matched up. This is not hard to conceive as the English word for month comes from moon! Yet our months have nothing to do with new moons! The same applies to God's calendar.

Convinced that the Government is getting ready to introduce law that will make Sunday the designated day of worship, two Sabbath keepers have set about preparing persons to mount fierce resistance to this perceived plan.
Vincent Hoo and Wilhelm Lecky, leaders of the FTB Ministries, have mounted billboards in Portmore, St Catherine; Mandeville, Manchester; and Mountain View Avenue in Kingston, telling people that "Sunday worship will be the Mark of the Beast".
"The Government of the land is going to come with a law making Sunday the compulsory day of worship, and any time that happens, that will be the Mark of the Beast. We want to warn the people not to accept that law in this land, making Sunday the only day of worship. We want to warn God's people of what is coming," Hoo told THE STAR yesterday.
Several attempts to contact Ed Bartlett, the Leader of Government Business in the House of Representatives, to find out whether the Andrew Holness-led administration has plans to introduce such legislation proved futile yesterday. Additionally, no mention was made of any such laws when the governor general gave the Throne Speech at the start of the year. In any event, Jamaica's constitution guarantees every person the right to freedom of religion and worship.
The FTB ministers, however, appear to be taking no chances. Hoo, for instance, argues that the public will soon be forced to contend with the question about whether Saturday and Sunday should be designated the day of worship. He said that Jamaicans should pay attention to their Bible, which he said clearly points to Saturday being designated as the day of rest and worship.
"We fear nothing, we fear no one and we are ready to go on our knees and testify for God. It is no joke, this is serious. Anyone who accepts the Mark of the Beast, the plague that is within this book (the Bible) is going to pour out on them," he stressed.
Lecky, a preacher for the ministry, said it is necessary for the message to be shared as Jamaicans are ignorant to Bible knowledge. He said it is their duty to help others understand the issue at hand.
"This is a warning for persons to investigate the issue, which for many would be an unpopular idea," he said.
"You warn the people not when the crisis begins, but before it does. The Mark of the Beast will be mandated by an enacted Sunday law," he said.
The FTB Ministry is said to be based on Seventh-day Adventist teachings. The ministry, which was started in 2002 by Hoo, does not have a physical home, but is said to capture the attention of about 100 persons in Jamaica with their live-streamed services.

Stunning report: Vote recount in 1 county had 60% error rate

"And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie." [2 Thessalonians 2:11]
Paul the Apostle taught, preached and wrote of things in the future. He explained how the Holy Spirit has been a restraining force in the world, restraining and holding back both the ultimate evils of human beings and that of the demonic forces of fallen angels.
Paul taught that the human being has a capacity for evil that dwarfs even the appalling acts of Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin and Chairman Mao. For even as just these three combined destroyed hundreds of millions of precious souls, our hearts are even darker, and whose actions, if unrestrained, could have obliterated every human on the face of the earth.
Psychology, secularism and New Age thought (as well as today's majority of mainline Protestant churches) are convinced that people are basically good, and resort to deviant acts and criminal behavior because of negative experiences in their lives. Recent proposals to reduce police forces and intervention with psychologists and social workers is a natural progression of "all people are basically good" ideas.
The Bible clearly and emphatically states the opposite. The Old Testament prophet Jeremiah clearly wrote, in Jeremiah 17:9, "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?"
Jesus, while speaking of the end times (Matthew 24:22), said, "And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened."
Today we have COVID-19, lockdowns, censorship and "the vaccines." Has "the Delusion" Paul wrote of finally arrived?
In one corner we have many fine and sincere people speaking up about fulfilling our biblical "Love thy neighbor" command who implore us to dutifully wear our face masks, receive our vaccine doses and remain sequestered, alienated and isolated from everyone. They insist this is our Christian obligation.
In an opposite corner are those who proclaim the end is near, the Gates-Fauci genocide is upon us and that vaccinations are a prelude to the Mark of the Beast. All hope is lost. And it is our Christian responsibility to resist at all costs.
Many are deluded to believe there was no fraud in the 2020 election and genuinely believe election audits are an attempt to destroy democracy.
Many are deluded to believe nature has confused their biology and that they can change from one gender to another by simply saying so.
Many are deluded to believe that the United States will, by any means necessary, be dragged from a constitutional republic and turned into a social-democratic nation where all men, women and nonbinaries (whatever that is) have equal pay, equal wages, equal housing and equal bank balances.
And many, apparently, have been deluded into believing that the Zuckerberg-Gates-Bezos-et al. Cabal Network, in tandem with the U.S. media giants, are more capable of establishing, monitoring and supervising the new American government (and its citizens) than those legitimately elected by the American people.
Has the biblical "Great Delusion" finally arrived?
Have you bought into this Delusion?

CDC calls urgent meeting to investigate 226 cases of heart inflammation in teen boys after having Pfizer or Moderna shots
- The CDC will hold an urgent meeting on June 18 to address the number of young men who've had heart inflammation after receiving Pfizer and Moderna vaccines
- The meeting will address the the 226 plausible cases of heart inflammation after receiving the second dose of the vaccines
- It comes a week after Israel reported it had found a likely link to the condition in young men following the second Pfizer dose
- The CDC other health regulators across the world have been investigating links between heart inflammation cases and COVID-19 vaccines since
- Israel said it had found 148 cases of myocarditis soon after the patient had been vaccinated
- In May, officials at the European Medicines Agency also reported receiving 107 reports of myocarditis following the Pfizer vaccine
- Britain's medical regulator announced on Friday it has not yet detected any link between Pfizer and Moderna's vaccines and heart damage
Soon, your speech in your actual phone calls will soon be controlled. Yes, you are listened to everyday by NSA computers on EVERY phone call you make! FACT! Soon, just like your text messages (see story below), Big Brother will soon ban what you can say on your phone! WAKE UP- YOU ARE SLAVES and you are as bad of as a Chinese citizen- DON'T BE FOOLED!
The Biden Regime just went full fascist. They are demanding control and ‘fact checking’ for the words you write in personal, private text communications.
Buried in a Politico article about the White House and Biden Regime planning to aggressively confront anyone who attempts to counter their demands of vaccination, including direct confrontation toward any media outlet that would distribute any counter message conflicting the regime narrative, there is this little alarming notation (emphasis mine):
Politico […] …”Biden allied groups, including the Democratic National Committee, are also planning to engage fact-checkers more aggressively and work with SMS carriers to dispel misinformation about vaccines that is sent over social media and text messages. The goal is to ensure that people who may have difficulty getting a vaccination because of issues like transportation see those barriers lessened or removed entirely.”.. (link)
Yes, you read that correctly. Fact-checking your SMS text messages through your carrier, your cell phone or internet provider.
This is a rather remarkable escalation in totalitarian censorship instruction. Not only will Big Tech social media networks (Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter) censor, delete, and look into any content placed in their “private sector” domain, but the implication is now that AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, T-Mobile, etc., etc. will deploy monitors and fact-checkers to control what you are allowed to say in text messages to your friends and family.
We have noted in past discussion that ISP providers have been enlisted to use their control nodules to steer and restrict internet travel; even placing landing warnings on websites that are arbitrarily deemed dangerous to approved government messaging. However, taking the leap to control the content of all communication platforms is another level entirely.
Another aspect to this is how the Intelligence Branch is closely connected to the private-public partnership. None of these control mechanisms would work if the corporate private sector was not willingly going along with the demands of intrusive government.
The Biden regime is now calling on SMS carriers to “fact-check” text messages in an effort to stop ‘misinformation’ about the Covid-19 vaccine.
Last Tuesday White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the Biden Administration will be sending goons door-to-door to harass unvaccinated Americans.
Biden confirmed that during his remarks last week and said his admin will focus on communities where vaccination rates are low.
“We need to go community-by-community, neighborhood-by-neighborhood, and oft times door-to-door, literally knocking on doors,” Biden said.
Now the Biden regime and its Democrat allies are going to monitor private communications to “dispel misinformation about vaccines that is sent over social media and text messages.”

People fled New York, Illinois and California for Texas, Idaho, Arizona and The Carolinas according to data from moving company North American Van Lines. The states of Florida, Texas, and Colorado also saw a greater influx of movers. Despite the pandemic the company claim people continued to move at rates that were comparable to 2019. The data showed that states that have much less densely populated areas were a big draw for people looking to relocate amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The move away from the likes of New York was driven, in part, by an increased fear of living in densely populated cities and rising crime amid the pandemic.
The very first thing I said to my wife and friends when I learned that the building that collapsed in Miami was 40 years old was that it was too new to collapse, UNLESS THERE WAS GRAFT and CORRUPTION, which by the way is rampant in cities and towns across America, especially those run by Democrats. I was most likely right.
REVEALED: Developers of doomed Miami condo tower were accused of PAYING OFF officials to get permits as Miami calls for inspections of all buildings taller than six stories and over 40 years old within 45 days
Developers of the Miami tower that collapsed were previously accused by building rivals of paying off officials to get permits, according to a the Washington Post. The tower was about to undergo a $15million renovation project to pass a required 40-year certification before it collapsed. A consultant engineer warned back in October 2018 that the Champlain Towers South building in Surfside, Miami Beach, was in need of numerous repairs around the base of the structure 'in a timely fashion.' Miami city officials have now urged owners of condo buildings that are taller than six stories and more than 40 years old to carry out structural inspections within the next 45 days.
Biden COVID czar: Americans should be ready to 'sacrifice a little bit' more in next pandemic
President Joe Biden's former coronavirus czar scolded Americans for not sacrificing enough during the past year to stem the pandemic.
Andy Slavitt, who resigned as a senior adviser to the White House pandemic responseteam last week, suggested that Americans were selfish and have only themselves to blame for the tragedies of the past year.
He made the snide comments Monday on "CBS This Morning" while shilling his new book “Preventable: The Inside Story of How Leadership Failures, Politics, and Selfishness Doomed the U.S. Coronavirus Response." MORE>>>>>>
