Why You Shouldn’t Wait for the Government To Save You After SHTF

“Hello, I’m from the government and I am here to help…”

If these words sum of your survival “plan,” you should go on ahead and start kissing your loved ones goodbye right now. The government is NOT prepared, and by the time their underlings start rolling down your street, it will likely be to take and not give, supplies. The government is not prepared to render aid to all American people immediately after a national disaster strikes, and beyond. The massive stockpile of food, potable water, and medicine you might think the government has to distribute, simply does not exist. The aftermath of natural disasters in 2017 alone proves that the problems with getting aid to emergency sights are not just a lack of available stockpiles, but also involves budgetary and logistical hurdles as well. Local and state governmental entities will be as overly taxed as federal agencies, and equally hampered by a lack of resources, funds, ability to reach areas in either the immediate or surrounding, disaster area. In all likelihood, when the government does arrive in your neighborhood, it may be to find more essential resources to keep itself and “top priority” areas going. Your guns could be the first thing to go, especially if martial law has been declared. The redistribution of vital materials, “for the public good” should be something we all are thinking about as we prep….and covertly store our preps. Also read: There Will Be Riots, Looting And A Divided America. Learn How To Become Invisible, To Mobs Disaster Warnings How much of a warning the government has before disaster strikes will directly impact both the amount of aide that can be distributed and how long it will take to deliver. Having time to coordinate with state, regional, county, and local governmental entities and businesses that sell fuel, food, and water, will increase the possibility that aide could arrive within days or weeks if the disaster is not a nationwide event. The chance of having more than a 24-hour warning before disaster strikes is likely only going to happen if the incident is sparked by a weather-related event, like a hurricane, tornado, or flooding. The ability to detect solar flares before they happen has only existed for about two decades and is still not perfected. Do not count on the Emergency Alert System (formerly known as the Emergency Broadcast System) to utter more than a single warning before an SHTF incident – if that. The once simplistic emergency response system went high tech about a decade ago…making it incredibly vulnerable to cyber hackers. Terrorists who are able to hack into the EAS could potentially send out false information to not only the general public but to the first responders who would be rushing into ground zero to help in the immediate aftermath of the disaster. Ponder for a moment, how much more devastating the 9/11 attacks or the Boston Marathon bombing could have been had the first responders intentionally been given false information – or instructions designed to lure them to an area for stage two of a terror attack to take place. If the power grid goes down, as would happen during a solar flare, EMP, nuclear attack, or catastrophic natural disaster near Washington, DC, the ability to enact the Emergency Alert System might not exist. The change over from the Emergency Broadcast System to the high tech Emergency Alert System permits the President of the United States to tap into a direct link to the EAS to issue an alert. To date, no president has conducted a live test on the new system, so whether or not it works or how hard it would be to hack, is basically unknown. Some security tech experts maintain hacking into the EAS system would not take the skills of a seasoned cyber hacker. If a hacker garners access to the root server of the Emergency Alert System, the ability to thwart or alter warnings messages has been gained. Governmental Priorities The government’s first priority will not be to feed, house, and render medical aid to the American people. Maintaining order will be the number one priority of all levels of government during and after an SHTF disaster. If our freedom must be infringed upon to get the task completed, that is what will be done. One of the most revered presidents in the history of the United States did just that, and we now celebrate his birth with a day off of work every year. President Abraham Lincoln has long been heralded for saving the union during the Civil War. He may have done that, but the Constitution was trampled upon to achieve the lofty goal. There is a distinct reason many Southerners refer to what happened between 1861 and 1865 as the “War of Northern Aggression,” and they do not have anything to do with cherishing the abhorrent act of owning other human beings. Contrary to what most public school history textbooks tell you, the Civil War began brewing not over slavery, but after more than a decade of tariffs being levied upon the South alone. Politicians of the 1800s were no different than their modern counterparts when it came to holding onto power and money to spend that was not their own. Prior to taking a vote on secession, President Lincoln had the entire Maryland State Legislature arrested. To keep America intact and collecting increasingly high export tariffs, the Constitution was violated in the following ways by Lincoln during the Civil War: 1. The Navy was ordered to blockade domestic ports. Such an act must be ordered by Congress, but during the Civil War, the president usurped the power of the governing body in an effort to starve the South into submission. 2. President Lincoln ordered the military attack on Fort Sumter without congressional approval and refused to call Congress back into formal session after the attack has taken place. Sumter was not just any fort, it was a primary tariff collection depot. 3. General William Tecumseh Sherman has issued an order by President Lincoln to embark on his march to the sea – burning down whole towns (including hospitals) and “requisitioning” food and other goods from Southern residents, as he saw fit. 4. Lincoln again circumvented Congress when he suspended the writ of habeas corpus. This allowed the arrest of Americans without bothering to file a criminal charge against them – and to hold them without the benefit of a trial indefinitely. When ordered by the United States Supreme Court to immediately restore the writ of habeas corpus. Lincoln not only ignored the mandate without consequence, he ordered the arrest of the justice who dared to issue it. Approximately 20,000 Americans were arrested after the writ was suspended during the Civil War. 5. More than 300 newspapers, the only form of a free press at the time, were either commandeered and then shuttered, by order of President Abraham Lincoln. Some of the publishers and editors of the newspapers who reported negative articles about the handling of the Civil War were arrested for merely exercising their right to free speech. The very protections our Founding Fathers wrote into the Constitution to forever prevent a loss of freedom or for tyranny to rear its ugly head in America, were cast aside by a single man and then soundly forgotten by the history books. If you think such a thing could not happen again, for the sake of keeping order, you would be delusional. The government will once again be acting in the ends justify the means mode during an SHTF scenario. Effort To Maintain Order?

Declare martial law

• Impose a curfew

• Restrict movements of Americans – enter the definite possibility of FEMA camps here!

• Requisition all functioning vehicles, or even horses, if the SHTF disaster was caused by an EMP or solar flare.

• Take control of the food supply

• Suspend the writ of habeas corpus…again

• Shut down the free press

The effective mission statement on FEMA’s own website should be viewed as a harbinger of what to expect during a large-scale disaster: “A secure and resilient nation with the capabilities required across the whole community to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from the threats and hazards that pose the greatest risk.” I can just about guarantee you folks that rural areas will not be anywhere near the top priority list for recovery aid during and after a doomsday disaster. When the agents from the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA show up in rural areas where most preppers live, they will be looking for food – because this is where is grown and raised, and for guns because we have the highest percentage of ownership on a geographic scale. Who will be the government decision makers after an SHTF disaster? That question has far too many variables to offer even an educated guess. We could be way down the presidential line of succession after a doomsday disaster. The HMIC could be the director of the Department of Transportation or the deputy director of Bureau of Land Management – in essence, an unelected appointee with less experience than a small town mayor when it comes to managing a population of any size I am not one prone to conspiracy theories. My description of the typical government response is based upon past precedent, agency priorities, and logic. The government will not think it’s out to get you, but protect you while maintaining order for the “public good.” That, my dear fellow preppers, is the recipe for a freedom-infringing and very dangerous scenario, indeed.

EWG’s 2018 Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 Lists (and Why “Experts” Are Telling Us to Ignore Them)

It’s that time of the year again! EWG has announced it’s annual “Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen” list of the foods that are the most contaminated with pesticides. Meanwhile, nutrition “experts” are telling consumers that the list isn’t important and that we should completely ignore the shopper’s guide. Why is this list so important? “It is vitally important that everyone eats plenty of produce, but it is also wise to avoid dietary exposure to toxic pesticides, from conception through childhood,” said Sonya Lunder, senior analyst with EWG. “With EWG’s guide, consumers can fill their fridges and fruit bowls with plenty of healthy conventional and organic produce that isn’t contaminated with multiple pesticide residues.” (source Studies suggest that consuming pesticide-laden food can result in many different health issues. After countless studies, pesticides have been linked to cancer, Alzheimer’s Disease, ADHD, and even birth defects. Pesticides also have the potential to harm the nervous system, the reproductive system, and the endocrine system. Pesticides can even be very harmful to fetuses because the chemicals can pass from the mother during pregnancy or if a woman nurses her child. Although one piece of fruit with pesticides won’t kill you, if they build up in your body, they can be potentially detrimental to your health and should be avoided as much as possible. (source) Since most of us can’t afford a diet of organic, locally-grown pesticide-free food, the Environmental Working Group came up with an annual list that can help you decide what to buy conventional and what to buy organic. Here were some of their most important findings this year: More than one-third of strawberry samples analyzed in 2016 contained 10 or more pesticide residues and breakdown products. More than 98 percent of samples of strawberries, peaches, potatoes, nectarines, cherries and apples tested positive for residue of at least one pesticide. Spinach samples had, on average, almost twice as much pesticide residue by weight compared to any other crop. Avocados and sweet corn were the cleanest. Less than 1 percent of samples showed any detectable pesticides. More than 80 percent of pineapples, papayas, asparagus, onions and cabbages had no pesticide residues. No single fruit sample from the Clean Fifteen tested positive for more than four pesticides. Read on for the EWG’s lists. The Dirty Dozen: These are the most contaminated foods When you go shopping, you should look for the organic version of these foods. The conventional varieties have the highest levels of pesticides that you’ll find. Strawberries Spinach Nectarines Apples Grapes Peaches Cherries Pears Tomatoes Celery Potatoes Sweet bell peppers The Clean 15: These are the less contaminated foods The Clean 15 list suggests the produce that is least likely to contain pesticide residue. However, if you’re avoiding GMOs, it’s important to note that this list does not take genetic modification into account – this is only about pesticides.

Avocados

Sweet corn

Pineapple

Cabbage

Onions

Frozen sweet peas

Papaya

Asparagus

Mangoes

Eggplant

Honeydew melon

Kiwi

Cantaloupe

Cauliflower

Broccoli

But many “experts” are saying we should ignore the Dirty Dozen list. Sadly, many people touted as nutrition experts say that the lists aren’t relevant. Here’s what some of them had to say. “Pro-choice” nutritionist Toby Amidor wrote: These “shoppers’ guides” are a disservice to consumers and confusing because they are not based upon sound science and are often in direct conflict…Among the key findings, misleading messaging which inaccurately describes certain fruits and vegetables as having “higher” pesticide residues results in low-income shoppers reporting that they would be less likely to purchase any fruits and vegetables – organic or conventional. There is a plethora of research which shows eating any form of fruit and vegetables provides more health benefits than skipping them altogether. (source) Carl K. Winter, PhD, food toxicologist and vice chair of food science and technology at the University of California Davis: [Winter] says the amounts of pesticides found on produce are ”tiny”…Based on the report, he says, “I worry that people are becoming concerned when they should not be.” (source) The Alliance for Food and Farming (AFF) says that the EWG’s conclusions are “unsupportable”: A University of California toxicology analysis found that a child could eat hundreds to thousands of servings of a fruit or vegetable in a day and still not have any effects from pesticide residues. This shows how minute residues are, if present at all. According to the FDA, washing produce under running tap water can reduce and often eliminate pesticide residues, if they are present at all. Scientists and health experts have urged consumers not to rely on this type of list to make produce shopping choices since these lists are not science-based and often provide contrasting recommendations. (source) Teresa Thorne, executive director of the Alliance for Food and Farming, an industry group representing farmers who grow both organic and conventional fruits and vegetables: [Thorne] says ”the report is not science-based.” She points out that much of the research finding benefits to a diet rich in fruits and vegetables has been done on conventionally grown produce, not organic. (source) I think the potential bias with the “Alliance for Food and Farmers” is obvious. So what’s a shopper to do? First of all, we each have to try and provide the best nutrition possible for our families while remaining within our budgets. (I wrote a popular article on making these decisions that you can find right here.) However, I sincerely believe that avoiding pesticides as much as possible is extremely important. I use the Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 guide for my own family when making choices about what to purchase at the grocery store. Pesticides are, by their very nature, poison. Why on earth would I deliberately feed them to my children? Pesticides aren’t the only concern out there in Groceryland, so I recommend avoiding them whenever possible.

Amazon gets on the pre-built blockchain train

Online retail giant launches a ‘blockchain-as-a-service’ platform, joining other tech majors rushing to roll out free-to-download template solutions

By Luke Thompson April 24, 2018 6:14 PM (UTC+8)

This year should go down in history as the year of the blockchain. In 2017 crypto-currencies and blockchain businesses emerged. This year they literally took off. To stay up with the tech times, major companies are now investing resources into blockchain-based solutions and services. Online retail giant Amazon is the latest to jump on the blockchain bandwagon with the launch of its own Amazon Web Services (AWS) ‘blockchain-as-a-service’ platform last week. The system will enable developers to set up their own blockchain-based projects by using pre-designed templates. The firm’s cloud computing division is going into direct competition with similar offerings from the likes of Oracle and IBM. Using two different platforms, AWS will enable users to access a pre-built blockchain framework upon which to expand their projects. The technology choice will be Ethereum, which currently powers the majority of new blockchain projects and initial coin offerings, and Hyperledger Fabric, an open source blockchain development solution developed by the Linux Foundation. Using pre-built templates gives companies an edge on rolling out blockchain projects faster. However they will still need some in-house technical expertise since it is a certainly more involved than setting up an email server or building a website. A guide to how to get started has been posted on the company blog but it is likely that most small to medium enterprises are simply not yet ready to deploy this technology for mainstream operations. Many will still be running decade-old operating systems on their office computers, so Amazon’s offerings seem, for now at least, to be another way of keeping up with the Joneses. Crypto-currency has gone way beyond virtual money over the past year and a number of communities and companies also offer similar services on which they base the value of their digital tokens. EOS market capitalization currently sits just over $11 billion, which makes it the fifth largest altcoin. Just like Ethereum, the community provides a type of operating system upon which decentralized applications (dApps) can be built. The network is highly scalable and provides accounts, authentication, databases, asynchronous communication and the scheduling of applications across multiple computers. Berlin-based Lisk is another blockchain development provider which uses a Javascript model to allow companies to build and deploy blockchain applications. Chinese based Neo has its own version of the development platform, Japan has Cardano, and South Korea is in there with Icon, so there is no shortage of blockchain solutions. The list of companies flocking towards the technology in an effort to gain an edge on their competitors is growing. In China, where crypto-currency exchanges are currently banned, Huawei, Baidu and Tencent already have their own blockchain platforms and it is likely that Alibaba will not be far behind. There are a number of advantages in using a decentralized solution over a centralized one owned by a mega-corporation. The Amazon system is free to download but the tech giant will still charge for and control cloud-based services needed to run projects built on AWS, and this seems to be where its interests lie with this offering.

Military dismantling Cold War radar systems in Ore.

02:50 PM PST on Sunday, February 20, 2005

By RYAN LENZ, Associated Press Writer

MOSCOW, Maine -- It's a dinosaur of the Cold War: a 3-mile-long radar system designed to detect Soviet bombers screaming across the Atlantic. The Over-The-Horizon Backscatter Radar, often described as the world's largest radar, was developed over 25 years for $1.5 billion etc.. etc.. it could monitor a massive swath of ocean and warn of threats nearly 2,000 miles away. etc.. Built in both Maine and Oregon, the radars picked up readings as far as 1,700 miles off both coasts. Built in both Maine and Oregon, the radars picked up readings as far as 1,700 miles off both coasts. etc.. and the news article ends with this... The backscatter radars bounced a beam off the ionosphere, which sends a scattered signal back to the Earth's surface. They were so sensitive, they could detect changes in ocean currents, a useful tool for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which debated acquiring the radars for research.

Gog, Magog, Russia, Syria and the Biblical End Times

By Billy Hallowell , Pureflix.com | Apr 22, 2018 6:21 PM

Are we living in the biblical end times? That's a question that has consistently emerged over the past two millennia, with scores of Christians wondering when Jesus' second coming will unfold. It's a topic that famed Christian author Joel Rosenberg has often discussed, as the prophecy expert routinely shares what he believes the Bible says about the end of days. Rosenberg, author of the new book, "The Kremlin Conspiracy," said during a recent appearance on PureFlix.com's "Pure Talk" that he believes humanity technically entered the last days once Jesus came, died, rose and set the gospel message into motion. While Rosenberg said the Bible tells us not to date-set, he pointed to signs that he believes indicate that humanity is moving further toward the fulfillment of biblical prophecy. "I don't know when, I don't have a date ... but if you look at all the prophecies ... one wonders," he said. "You see a lot of global chaos ... more Christians have been slaughtered in the last century than at any other time in human history — and that's saying something, because we've been often slaughtered." Watch Rosenberg explain why he believes humanity is living in the end of days: It was rebirth of Israel in 1948, though, that Rosenberg believes is quite significant, as he called it one of the "main prophecies" in the Old Testament, pointing back to Ezekiel 36-39 as one of the places where Israel's re-emergence is prophesied. Rosenberg also addressed claims that "Gog of the land of Magog" referenced in Ezekiel was forewarning of a leader from Russia. Based on his reading of the text, Rosenberg explained what his interpretation of the still-unfulfilled events would be. "The one-day, future evil leader of Russia is going to form an alliance with Iran, Turkey and some other hostile countries to come and surround and attack Israel in the last days," Rosenberg said, adding that these events could still be hundreds of years away. That said, he believes Russia's activities in Syria and relations with other dangerous players like Iran and North Korea should raise some eyebrows. "I don't know what to make of it, but it's not good," he said. "Vladimir Putin is more dangerous to the United States and our way of life than radical Islam. And I don't think most Americans process it that way." Regardless of what happens, Rosenberg said that it's essential for Christians to pray for peace in Jerusalem and the surrounding nations and lands. He also encouraged Christians to step in and, when possible, help deliver humanitarian relief to those impacted by the chaos and carnage currently raging in the Middle East.

The 'End of the World' Is Today. Here's Why We're Still Here.

By Jeanna Bryner, Live Science Managing Editor | April 23, 2018 06:46am ET

Today is the day. It's the beginning of the end, according to practiced doomsday diviner David Meade. On April 23, 2018, Meade says, the sun, the moon and Jupiter will line up in the constellation Virgo (in actuality, they will not be in that constellation) — an alignment that has biblical disaster written all over it. In the Bible, Revelation 12:1-2 speaks of a "woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head," who labors to give birth to a dictator who will ultimately bring about the world's end. Meade did a lot of numerical and cosmic gymnastics to come up with today's apocalypse — one that, of course, will not come to be. The same passage used for today's prediction was also the basis for Meade's end-of-the-world prediction last year, when he said the sky would essentially fall on Sept. 23. It did not. [End of the World? Top 10 Doomsday Threats] And, in fact, his current forecast seems to have long roots: Baptist preacher William Miller made multiple failed doomsday predictions, and one of them was for April 23, 1843. Sadly, perhaps for Meade, the planet Jupiter will appear not in Virgo but in the constellation Libra from Earth's perspective; the sun will appear to align with Aries, while the moon will lurk in the constellation Gemini today, according to The Sky Live. This celestial alignment is, according to Meade, just the beginning of the cosmic catastrophe. From there, a rogue planet called Planet X will supposedly pass by Earth in October and cause a planetwide mess (worldwide volcanic eruptions) that will culminate in the return of Jesus Christ — also based on the Book of Revelation. There are a few problems with this part of the prediction. For one, Planet X, also called Nibiru, is fictional. And whereas scientists are looking for an Earth-size planet that they sometimes refer to as "Planet X" or "Planet Nine," this is a different world altogether from the one described by Meade and others. Nibiru, in fact, is the baby of conspiracy theorist Nancy Lieder, who floated the idea in the 1990s. This rogue planet — a body that astronomers who stare at the skies, looking for actual alien worlds, would not miss — was the basis for the failed 2012 Maya apocalypse, among others. Besides Nibiru being a made-up world that has been debunked repeatedly, the Revelation passage also has some issues. "The author of Revelation was wrong in his predictions, so neither this book nor any other ancient book is of much relevance for predicting the future," Allen Kerkeslager, a professor of ancient and comparative religion at St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia, told Live Science earlier this month. All this is to say, the doomsday prediction is bogus. Happy Monday. Original article on Live Science.

Algeria Launches Crackdown on Christians, Shuttering Churches

04-19-2018 CBN News

Authorities in the north African nation of Algeria are closing churches in an attempt to curtail the activities of minority Christians in this Muslim-majority nation. In the past several months, three congregations associated with the Protestant Church of Algeria were shut down after authorities allege the structures didn't meet certain building safety codes. Mohamed Aissa, Algeria's ministry of religious affairs, claims the churches were closed because they "did not meet the standards required of a place of worship." "When a place of worship is built without any notice showing it's a place of worship, which may enable the state to protect it, this place must be closed," Aissa said during an interview with a pro-government television station. A fourth church in Akbou, a town in northern Algeria which has been operating without any government interference for more than six years, was also closed. Aissa insists the government isn't just targeting Christians. "The institutions that were closed have been closed down because they were built without complying with the regulations of the Republic," Aissa alleges, adding that even mosques that don't comply will be affected. Still, an official with the Protestant Church of Algeria told World Watch Monitor that 25 churches affiliated with the organization have received building standard compliance notifications from the government in the past few months. Human rights groups say a law passed in 2006 regulating the religious activity of non-Muslims has only made life more challenging for Christians and other minority faith groups. "It is an unjust law against Christians, who are denied their right to worship and the opportunity to share the Gospel freely," a local Protestant leader said. He added that "the situation of Christians in Algeria will not improve until the outright law, which is no longer justified, is repealed." Open Doors, a group that puts a spotlight on religious freedom abuses around the world, has listed Algeria among the top 50 countries where it is dangerous to be a follower of Christ. "Christians in Algeria suffer from various restrictions and challenges imposed by both the state and society," said Open Doors, "Laws regulating non-Muslim worship, banning conversion and prohibiting blasphemy make proselytizing and public expression of the Christian faith dangerous." Muslims who convert to Christianity often face the most persecution from the government and radical Islamic groups. "Muslim background believers {MBBs) face isolation and shame, often leading to financial hardships, and in areas where extremists are, physical injuries and even death," said Open Doors on its website. "When officials or secret police discover MBBs' places of gathering and worship, they often destroy any means of coming together to be the church and, in turn, prevent the encouragement that comes from worshiping with a body of believers of one mind and heart." There are approximately 68,500 Christians among Algeria's estimated population of 40 million. The rest are Muslim.

Trump dials up cell use as mystery phone spy devices spotted around D.C.

04.24.18 By Steven Melendez2 minute Read

President Trump is using his personal cellphone more heavily lately to contact friends and informal advisors outside the White House, according to CNN, raising fresh doubts about White House Chief of Staff John Kelly’s ability to control access to the president, and new security questions too. “He may be keeping things from his chief of staff, but he will elicit the interest of foreign intelligence services,” former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told CNN’s Don Lemon. “This is potentially a gold mine of intelligence for them. Even if he is using some kind of secure app, there’s all kinds of inferential things you can derive from the fact he’s doing that … even if you don’t get the content.” The vulnerability of Trump’s personal phone coincides with a persistent threat: Just this month, the  While they are increasDepartment of Homeland Security confirmed that it’s spotted unauthorized cell-site simulators, also known as IMSI catchers or Stingrays, around Washington, D.C. The devices–which can cost from $1,000 to about $200,000 and are commonly the size of a briefcase–imitate cell towers, enticing phones to connect to them, which can allow a user to locate the phone or even potentially spy on calls and texts.ingly used clandestinely by law enforcement–who are the only authorized users by U.S. law–it’s unclear who’s operating the devices around Washington, or where they are even precisely located. The mystery dates back at least to 2014, when researchers detected suspected unauthorized devices near locations like the White House, the Supreme Court, the Commerce Department and the Pentagon. Many foreign embassies are also thought to operate their own powerful cell tower simulators. In a March 26 letter, DHS Acting Undersecretary Christopher Krebs told Senator Ron Wyden that unauthorized Stingrays present “safety, economic and privacy risks.” In response, House Reps Frank Pallone (D-NJ), Eliot Engel (D-NY), and Bennie Thompson (D-MS) sent a letter this month to FCC chair Ajit Pai asking him to “address the prevalence of what could be hostile, foreign cell-site simulators, or Stingrays, surveilling Americans in the nation’s Capital.” Back in January, security concerns prompted Kelly to ban the use of personal cell phones for West Wing staffers, over objections by some that they’d be cut off from children and other family members during the busy workday. (Secret Service-issued phones are not intended for personal use, and can’t accommodate texting.) “The security and integrity of the technology systems at the White House is a top priority for the Trump administration and therefore starting next week the use of all personal devices for both guests and staff will no longer be allowed in the West Wing,” press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement at the time. Not much concrete detail has been released about the phone Trump is currently using, or what security measures may be employed when he uses it. Former President Barack Obama used a BlackBerry with special security enhancements while he was in office. Last year, Trump was reported by Axios to have switched from an Android phone to an iPhone with only one app installed: Twitter.

GOLD SHOULD BE $16,450 & SILVER $761

April 19, 2018 by Egon von Greyerz

The super powers in the West are doing what they can to provoke Russia and indirectly China and Iran into a world war. Most people alive today were not adults when WWII started and therefore did not follow the lead up to the war. But today the whole world can watch how the West has chosen to attack a country which has no major significance geopolitically and does not threaten any other country. Still the West clearly knows that bombing of Syria can start a global conflict with potentially horrendous consequences. There is no intelligent reporting of these events in the Western media. Whatever propaganda the media is fed, they just publish it without any analysis or investigation. And the US with its allies do not wait for any independent verification of alleged use of chemical weapons. That a world war could start on such fickle reasoning is absolutely frightening. UK & US starts a war to divert attention from domestic woes Syria is of course only an excuse. As a country it would be of no consequence for the safety of the rest of the world if it was left alone. Most wars are started by nations which are under economic pressure domestically. The US and UK fit that picture perfectly. With debts growing exponentially and massive budget and trade deficits, both these countries are on the way to bankruptcy. Added to that, their leaders are under major pressure at home. Trump has “Deep State” and impeachment pressures and Theresa May suffers from weak leadership in a minority government with an unresolved Brexit. This is the perfect background for pretending that there is a major global conflict and diverting the attention to the international scene. It is only Russia’s restraint which has so far stopped this conflict from turning into something very serious for the world. We must remember that Russia only has two military bases outside of their country whilst the US has around 1,000. Also, according to independent experts, Russia’s military might is far superior to that of the US. But in the case of a nuclear war, both countries have more than enough power to destroy the world. So we must hope and pray that it won’t come to that. Protect against financial risks Virtually nobody can protect against a global nuclear conflict. But we can protect against local conflicts and we can protect against a financial crisis. In 2001 we decided as a company that protection against a potential financial crisis was an absolute necessity. Thus we took the decision to invest in physical gold for our clients and ourselves. At the time, I regarded the continuous deficit spending, credit growth and the derivative time bomb as major risks. The best time to make a strategic and long-term investment decision is when the asset you intend to buy is unloved and undervalued. That was certainly the case with gold at the time. Gold had been going down for 19 years from $850 in 1980 to a low of $250 in 1999. Central banks around the world had been selling a major part of their gold. The UK and Switzerland comes to mind as two countries selling the majority of their gold around the lows – a very good buying signal. As we were forecasting a potential financial crisis at some point in the future, we recommended, in early 2002 to our investors to buy gold for up to 50% of their financial assets. Gold was then $300. At the time this was quite a radical proposition, especially since gold was then a barbarous relic that was totally out of fashion. The advantage with buying an undervalued asset that is not on the front pages, is that the risk is so much smaller than when the trade becomes crowded. Gold ready for the next strong move up The timing was quite fortunate. As the chart below shows, gold rose every year from $300 in 2002 to $1,920 in 2011. In 2013 a bigger correction started which ended in 2015. Since then gold has only moved up slowly just like it did in 1999-2001. In my opinion, gold is now in the process of breaking out from the 5 year consolidation. We need to get proper confirmation with a move to $1,400 but the position of the quarterly chart confirmed by the rising MACD indicator is a strong sign that the next move in gold to new highs is imminent. The chart below also shows that gold is in a strong uptrend and that the correction in the last 5 years is minor and finishing. Physical gold is held for wealth preservation not for speculation We must remember that gold is not bought or held as a conventional investment for capital appreciation purposes. No, gold has a much more important function than that. Our company invested in gold in 2002 because we identified the risks in the financial system as very high. But today the risks are substantially higher and the reason for buying physical gold even more compelling. WE BUY PHYSICAL GOLD BECAUSE:

It has been money for 5,000 years

It is the only money which has survived throughout history.

It guarantees stable purchasing power over time.

It is scarce – It cannot be printed. (Unlimited paper gold creation will soon collapse.)

It is durable – All the gold ever produced still exists.

It is nobody else’s liability – Thus no counterparty risk.

It is held and traded outside a fragile financial system – Thus gives independence.

It is the ultimate wealth preservation asset and insurance against a rotten world economy.

It might appear that I am a gold bug but that is far from the case. We bought gold in 2002 to protect against the colossal risks we saw in the world economy and financial system. We are not in love with gold but believe that it is the best protection you can buy and own today. At some point gold will be overloved and overvalued. Then we will recommend to our investors to sell some of their gold or swap it against other assets which are unloved and undervalued. But I expect that time to be quite a few years away. Inflation adjusted gold should be $16,450 and Silver $761 Today at $1,350, gold is as unloved and undervalued as it was when we bought in 2002 at $300. On an real inflation adjusted basis gold at $1,350 today is at the same level as in 2002. (see chart below) and also at a 300 year low. The 1980 gold peak at $850, adjusted for inflation, would be $16,450 in today’s money – 12x higher than currently. That price is more in line with our own targets. Silver is even more undervalued. On the same inflation adjusted basis, silver is also at a 300 year low. At $17.20 today, inflation adjusted silver is the same as in 2000 at around $4. And the 1980 silver high of $50 would today be $761 – a 44x increase from here. Gold at $16,450 and silver at $761, makes the gold-silver ratio 22, which is in line with historical levels. But since the ratio is just below 79 today, it means that silver will move almost 4x as fast as gold. Gold and Silver are at historical lows – inflation adjusted Bearing in mind that credit creation has been exponential in this century with global debt having doubled to $250 trillion since 2006, gold has in no way reflected this money printing and total destruction of paper money. So this is still to come. Once the intervention in the paper market fails, which could happen at any time, the moves in gold and silver will be explosive. The time to own physical gold and silver is today and not when they move to new highs. Both metals are at inflation adjusted historical lows and the downside risk is minimal. Also, they probably are the most undervalued of all assets currently. With geopolitical, economic and financial risks at an extreme high, please don’t ignore these risks and don’t ignore history. And with the precious metals at extreme lows, it would be very unwise not to own substantial protection in the form of physical gold and silver.

Russia raises questions on Skripal poisoning

Moscow says it has proof that the agent used in the UK attack is a chemical weapon patented in the US

By M.K. Bhadrakumar April 19, 2018 6:10 PM (UTC+8)

The sensational case of the poisoning of the ex-MI6 agent and former Russian military intelligence colonel, Sergei Skripal on March 4 in Salisbury, UK, is becoming curiouser and curiouser. Moscow is strongly refuting British allegations of Russian involvement in the poisoning of Skripal. An engrossing plot in big-power politics is also unfolding. There is stuff here for a Le Carre novel. Are we witnessing a replay of the false flag Gulf of Tonkin attack of August 1964, the imaginary “incident” concocted by the US military to provide legal and political justification for deploying American forces in South Vietnam and for commencing open warfare against North Vietnam? To recap, Britain alleged a military grade nerve agent of a type known as Novichok was used in Salisbury. It was originally developed in the former Soviet Union, and, therefore, Moscow’s hand – possibly, even President Vladimir Putin’s hand – was “highly likely”. Moscow has maintained, on the other hand, that it had destroyed all its chemical weapons and said the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) investigation verified this. The British allegation quickly morphed into a large-scale expulsion of Russian diplomats (over 100 of them) by western capitals, under heavy pressure from Washington and London. The US alone expelled 60 Russian diplomats, while Britain expelled 23. Britain is studiously ignoring the Russian requests for samples of the chemical agent used in the Salisbury attack and for giving consular access to the ex-spy’s daughter Yulia. Meanwhile, Britain instead approached the OPCW to investigate. The OPCW has refused to confirm or deny the country of origin of the chemical agent used in the Salisbury attack. There is egg on PM Theresa May’s face. On April 18, Moscow disclosed that it has handed over to the OPCW alleged proof that the Novichok agent purportedly used in the Salisbury attack actually happens to be patented as a chemical weapon in 2015 in the US and produced in that country. (By the way, unlike Russia, the US is yet to destroy its chemical weapon stockpiles, as required under the Chemical Weapons Convention of 1997.) Now, not only the British government but Washington too has some explaining to do. Participating in the BBC’s Hard Talk program this week with Stephen Sacker, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov punched hard, saying “‘highly likely’ is a new invention of British diplomacy to describe why they punish people – because these people are ‘highly likely’ guilty. Like in ‘Alice in Wonderland’ by Lewis Carroll when he described a trial… and the King said: ‘Let’s ask the jury’ and the Queen shouted: ‘No jury! Sentence first! Verdict afterwards!’ That’s the logic of ‘highly likely.’” Britain is steadily edging away from the Skripal case, hoping, perhaps, that the matter will die down. But will Moscow let Britain off the hook? The Russians also seem to be holding back on some explosive information pointing toward alleged complicity by the US in this affair. Simply put, could the Salisbury attack have been an Anglo-American joint covert operation undertaken with the ulterior motive to ratchet up tensions between the West and Russia? Indeed, it meshed well with the Russia-collusion campaign against Trump. The Washington Post reported on Monday that the former National Security Advisor HR McMaster might have hoodwinked President Donald Trump into approving the expulsion under the wrong notion that similar numbers of expulsions by European allies was in the pipeline. In the event though, the Europeans made only token expulsions. Earlier, McMaster tried to stop Trump from congratulating Putin on his big victory in the Russian election on March 18 in a phone conversation (where they discussed a possible summit meeting in a near future). If the Skripal incident was McMaster’s swan song, the indefatigable Russophobe probably hoped to kill two birds with one stone – push Russia’s relations with the West to a crisis point and second, scotch the prospects of an early US-Russia presidential summit. How far all this is linked to Trump’s decision on March 22, finally, to sack McMaster as National Security Advisor is a moot question. By the standards of military people, McMaster has the reputation of being an “intellectual” but the man proved to be a Cold Warrior fit for a museum. The one-star general who was overlooked for promotion by the Pentagon was Trump’s default choice following the abrupt departure of Michael Flynn as National Security Advisor. Michael Wolff narrates a hilarious episode in his book Fire and Fury that during the job interview for National Security Advisor, McMaster tried to impress Trump when he showed up wearing a uniform with his silver star and launched into a wide-ranging lecture on global strategy. Afterward, Trump reportedly remarked, “That guy bores the shit out of me.”

Experts warn one of the 'most active and dangerous' faults in the US is a 'tectonic TIME BOMB' that could kill hundreds if it produced a major quake in the San Francisco Bay Area

USGS examined devastation that would occur in a M7.0 quake at Hayward fault

The hypothetical earthquake would cause roughly 800 deaths in the region

There would be roughly 18,000 injuries and, nearly 25,000 trapped people

The experts say Hayward last produced a major quake 150 years ago, in 1868

Its most recent major events were separated by 150 years, with some variation

By Cheyenne Macdonald For Dailymail.com Published: 17:36 EDT, 18 April 2018 | Updated: 17:51 EDT, 18 April 2018

A 52-mile fault running through a region of San Francisco Bay populated by more than 7 million people is lying in wait like a ‘tectonic time bomb,’ experts warn. An unsettling new study led by the US Geological Survey has examined the devastation that would ensue if a magnitude 7.0 earthquake were to occur along the Hayward fault. While the San Andreas fault may be better known, USGS warns Hayward ‘is among the most active and dangerous in the United States.’ In the scenario, they found that the hypothetical quake would cause roughly 800 deaths in the region, and an additional 18,000 injuries – and, nearly 25,000 trapped people would have to be rescued from collapsed buildings and stalled elevators. The terrifying estimates come from the USGS’s ‘HayWired earthquake scenario,’ which was conducted in effort to help cities better prepare for a real disaster. Over the last 1,900 years, Hayward produced ‘major prehistoric earthquakes’ roughly every 100-220 years, with the 12 most recent major quakes occurring at intervals of about 150 years, with some variation, according to USGS. And, the last was a magnitude 6.8 quake in 1868. Given its history, experts say another huge event could essentially happen at any time. ‘The fault is what we sort of call a tectonic time bomb,’ USGS earthquake geologist emeritus David Schwartz told the LA Times. ‘It’s just waiting to go off.’ According to the analysis, several East Bay cities would be hit by ‘violent ground shaking’ if the epicenter of the M7.0 earthquake were beneath Oakland. In Oakland, Berkeley, San Leandro, and Hayward, the ground could suddenly move as much as 6 feet as the opposite sides of the fault shift. The entire Bay Area would feel strong shaking, and sandy soils would be come liquid-like. According to USGS, aftershocks could continue to spring up for years after the fact, potentially bringing a magnitude 6.4 in Santa Clara County, near San Jose. The property damage would hit more than $82 billion, the experts say, destroying about 77,000 -152,000 households and displacing roughly 411,000 people. Water distribution in the area would be disrupted as well, causing residents to lose water service for anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months. And, the quake could spark hundreds of gas- and electric-related fires. Hundreds would be killed as a result of the mainshock, and there would be roughly 18,000 nonfatal injuries. While the scenario is worrying, the researchers say preparation could dramatically reduce these numbers. A 52-mile fault running through a region of San Francisco Bay populated by more than 7 million people is lying in wait like a ‘tectonic time bomb.' While the San Andreas fault may be better known, USGS warns Hayward ‘is among the most active and dangerous in the United States’

IS CALIFORNIA AT RISK OF A DEVASTATING MEGAQUAKE? A recent report from the U.S. Geological Survey has warned the risk of 'the big one' hitting California has increased dramatically. Researchers analysed the latest data from the state's complex system of active geological faults, as well as new methods for translating these data into earthquake likelihoods. The estimate for the likelihood that California will experience a magnitude 8 or larger earthquake in the next 30 years has increased from about 4.7% to about 7.0%, they say. 'We are fortunate that seismic activity in California has been relatively low over the past century,' said Tom Jordan, Director of the Southern California Earthquake Center and a co-author of the study. Shown above is the chance of an earthquake across California over the next 30 years 'But we know that tectonic forces are continually tightening the springs of the San Andreas fault system, making big quakes inevitable.' Seismologist Lucy Jones from the US Geological Survey warned recently that people need to accept the fact catastrophe is imminent, and prepare themselves accordingly. Dr Jones said our decision to not accept it will only mean more people suffer as scientists warn the 'Big One' is now overdue to hit California. Dr Jones, who is from the US Geological Survey said there are three key reasons why the peril is so frightening - it cannot be seen, it is uncertain and it seems unknowable. This means people bury their heads in the sand and pretend it won't happen. With early warning systems such as the recently tested ShakeAlert, and the use of the ‘Drop, Cover, and Hold On’ tactic, USGS says as many as 1,500 injuries could be prevented. The new report, the experts say, can help both the state and residents prepare for disaster before one strikes. ‘The HayWired report provides a thorough, comprehensive analysis of the potential impact of a large-scale earthquake in the Bay Area,’ said Ryan Arba, from the Earthquake and Tsunami Program within the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services. ‘The State of California and its local partners have been preparing for decades; however, there is always more that we can do.’

A third of the nationwide increase in 2014-15 came from one state, New York. The reasons for the sharp increase in the state are not clear. (Those who are educated and aren’t financial Big pHARM puppets know the cause) But the numbers have real implications for states and localities, which pay by far the largest share of costs for special education students.

As a physician, I remember the Hippocratic oath, DO NOT HARM. When the ratio of normal to autism goes from 1 out of 250,000 to 1 out of 50, with the only variable I can see is the vaccines. It is criminal to have this information and facts right in city square, and the powers that be, deny it even exists. The question is do the powers that be vaccinate their children? I have heard that the powers that be falsify their childrens’ records, put in false vaccine information, and they then take it to the schools and say, see, my child is up to date, yet, they never even took any of vaccines. As this is second maybe third or more information, I do not know what is true, However, I do know that some health care workers commonly do this for the required work vaccines. The vaccines are poison, and that is one form of following the French underground rules during world war 2. admin on 04/19/2018

It’s estimated that at least 400 U.S. doctors kill themselves every year. After a few cases of vaccine injury, no matter how brain washed they are, they must know. Trapped in a system – six figure medical school debt – they are a cog in the killing machine. If you have power and money – laws don’t apply.

Vaccines are the great equalizer. I remember reading in the 1980’s on the utopia of equality – the best ballerinas would be fitted with sandbags, so everyone would be equal.

Pentagon Warns Of 'Blatantly False' MSM Report As Fake News Warnings Comes From Strange Source

By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine April 18, 2018

2017 was a brutal year for the mainstream media, with multiple outlets busted publishing outright fake news, from ABC News tanking the stock market resulting in the suspension of Brian Ross, to CNN forcing the resignation of three employees, all for "reporting" inaccurate stories that had to be retracted. Then there were other fake MSM stories which didn't result in suspensions or firings, such as the now-infamous CNN claim that Donald Trump Jr. recieved access to Wikileaks documents, which other news outlets gleefully jumped on, just to find out that the date their "sources" gave them was 10 days off and the documents had already been public when Don Jr. received an email about it from some small donor. Another CNN example was when they reported an "exclusive" claiming former FBI Director James Comey was going to "refute" President Trump's claim that he was told personally by Comey, three times, he was not under investigation. They had to re-title that piece and change the entire story after Comey's prepared statement was released where he confirmed President Trump's assertions. Washington Post, NYT, and a variety of other outlets have continuosly been busted over the past year pushing completely false information to the public. Note - Each aforementioned example is sourced and linked for those that still do not understand how badly the press have behaved over the last year. NEW FAKE NEWS WARNING COMES FROM A STRANGE SOURCE Each of the examples above included unnamed or anonymous "sources," which turned out to be completely wrong, and the latest warning about "inaccurate" aka fake news, comes directly after news outlet McClatchy claimed, using two unnamed sources of course, that Robert Mueller had "evidence Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, visited Prague in the summer of 2016." That was a claim originally made in the unverified, Kremlin sourced, Steele dossier that was funded by the Hillary Clinton Campaign and the DNC. The claim that Cohen visited Prague in the summer of 2016, was determined to have referenced another Michael Cohen, as multiple different outlets confirmed back in January 2017. BuzzFeed obtained the passport images of the Michael Cohen associated with president Trump, MediaIte at the time highlighted that even CNN's anti-Trump Jake Tapper had confirmed "People tried to run that down and concluded it was a different Michael Cohen. It was a Michael Cohen with a passport from another country, same birth year, different birth date." Elaina Plott, writer for The Atlantic and Washtonian, reported "Two USC baseball sources confirm for me that @MichaelCohen212 + son visited campus on August 29th, time report places him in Prague." That was confirmed by The Atlantic's WH correspondent, Rosie Gray. One intrepid Twitter user even hunted through Cohen's Twitter feed because he geotags many of his tweets, and found that the Cohen associated with Trump was indeed in New York, and Los Angeles, throughout August 2016, according to those geotags. (Geotag: an electronic tag that assigns a geographical location to a photograph or video, a posting on a social media website) Now more than a year after those claims were made, then debunked, even by liberal media Trump-hating outlets, Mcclatchy claims they have "two sources familiar with the matter," unnamed, that Mueller's team has "has evidence that Donald Trump’s personal lawyer and confidant, Michael Cohen, secretly made a late-summer trip to Prague during the 2016 presidential campaign."  Three days later, no outlet could confirm the report, but many repeated McClatchy's report. The Daily Caller obtained a statement from a spokesperson for the special counsel’s office, who did not address the specific report, but did offer a warning: “What I have been telling all reporters is that many stories about our investigation have been inaccurate. Be very cautious about any source that claims to have knowledge about our investigation and dig deep into what they claim before reporting on it,” the spokesperson said. “If another outlet reports something, don’t run with it unless you have your own sourcing to back it up.” The Washington Times has confirmed the statement from the spokesperson.  The Daily Caller goes on to provide three other examples of the same McClatchy writers reporting "inaccurate" information that could not be confirmed, which also used the same terminology of "two sources familiar" with the individual topic matters. According to Raw Story, a far left liberal website who quotes the Daily Caller statement from the Mueller spokesperson, that man is Peter Carr, which makes the fake news warning strange on a number of levels. First, the timing of the warning so soon after the McClatchy story, from Mueller's team which is known for being closed-mouthed with the press, and has not to date refuted or confirmed any rumor, chatter, or reports regarding the Russia probe. When ABC News' Brian Ross incorrectly reported that Michael Flynn was prepared to testify that Trump "directed him to make contact with the Russians," which is the story that tanked the stock market, caused ABC to issue multiple clarifications, then corrections, and to suspend Brian Ross, Mueller's team did not offer a statement one way or another, simply allowed the chips to fall. Second, the spokesperson named by Raw Story, is quite literally known as "Mr. No Comment," as detailed in a piece on Carr by the Salt Lake Tribune last Sunday. SLT describes Carr as "The most quoted person saying absolutely nothing. And that’s by design." “In recent weeks,” the story explained, “Carr has declined to comment on everything from the scope and progress of Mueller’s investigation to the reason why his office — relocated this summer from a publicly disclosed site near FBI headquarters — is now secret.” For team Mueller to publicly make a statement, some type of truly egregious reporting had to have caught their attention, and the only high profile report in the last few days about the Russia probe has been the McClatchy report, which even Benjamin Wittes from Lawfare urges people to be "cautious" of unless it can be independently confirmed. NYT ACCUSED BY THE PENTAGON OF 'BLATANTLY FALSE' REPORT Since we are highlighting "fake news," we also note that while the Pentagon did not use the term "fake news," according to the AFP and other outlets, they are calling a New York Times claim, using unnamed sources yet again, "blatantly false." Confirmation of the AFP report via Washington Examiner: The Pentagon Wednesday strongly denied a New York Times story that said Defense Secretary Jim Mattis urged President Trump to get congressional approval before launching cruise missiles toward Syria last week, but was overruled by the president. The story is "blatantly false,” said Dana White, the Pentagon’s chief spokesperson, in an email to the Washington Examiner. BOTTOM LINE Independent Media has consistently warned readers to always take news using anonymous or unnamed sources with a grain of salt, to always question the official narrative, and to research every item of news independently. It is why we link heavily to a variety of sources, both liberal and conservative, so readers can have a starting point for their research, and come to their own conclusions. With the examples above, and the horrendously bad reporting, much of which ended up being literal "fake news," from the MSM in 2017, is it any wonder that 77 percent of Americans believe the mainstream media reports "fake news," as found by the most recent Monmouth University poll? 31 percent believe the media does so regularly, and 46 percent say it occurs occasionally. Below Hannity discusses the most recent attacks against him as he points out the hypocrisy and failures of the MSM.  NOTE TO READERS: With digital media revenue spiraling downward, especially hitting those in Independent Media, where attacks from every direction continue to come unabated, it has become apparent that traditional advertising simply isn't going to fully cover the costs and expenses for many smaller independent websites. Any extra readers may be able to spare for donations is greatly appreciated.

Tom Horn’s “Blood On The Altar” Vision Has Arrived. It’s Time For Real Christians To Armor Up

April 19, 2018 by SkyWatch Editor

It’s time for Christians to armor up. It’s time for us all to recognize how serious the other side is to silence our message, to confine us, to restrict us, and eventually to exterminate us. We must push back hard against the darkness rather than meekly surrender. It’s past time for us to “take up the whole armor of God, that [we] may be able to stand firm in the evil day” (Ephesians 6:13). There no longer is any place in the body of Christ for the summer soldier and the sunshine patriot. It is an evil day, and we are fighting for everything that matters. (READ MORE)

CALL FOR LGBTQ AND ATHEISTS TO JOIN FORCES AGAINST CHRISTIANS

In her new book titled Queer disbelief: Why LGBTQ Is an Atheist Issue, author Camille Beredjick calls for atheists to unite with the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community to fight their war together against Christians. A professed atheist and LGBTQ activist, Beredjick says that the two sides have much in common and are fighting a common enemy, reported PJMedia.com. Beredjick wrote about the fact that they have succeeded in suing Christians out of business for conducting business according to their religious beliefs, notably bakeries and florists who refuse to provide cakes and flowers for same sex weddings. Yes, atheists and the LGBTQ communities do have something very much in common, according to the Word of God; they are both servants of the devil (Leviticus 18:22; Psalms 9:17). I have recently written about the fact that Jesus said He would return at a time like the days of Lot, at a time when you will see “militant homosexuals.” “Likewise as it was in the days of Lot…but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, destroying them all. Even so shall it be in the day when the Son of man (Jesus) is revealed” Luke 17:28-30. What was happening in the days of Lot? Lot lived in Sodom, a city overtaken with homosexuality, as the city was named “Sodom.” The homosexuals were so militant, they demanded Lot send out two angels that were in his home, so they could rape them! The angels struck the homosexuals with blindness (Genesis 19) and then rescued Lot, his wife and daughters from the city before God rained fire and brimstone down on it, because of their perverse sins. Beredjick’s book essentially is a fulfillment of Bible prophecy, as are the lawsuits against Christian businesses for not planting two grooms, or two brides on top of their cakes, and for refusing to deliver flowers to gay weddings. We are living in the last of the last days, folks. The Word of God tells us to be “wise as serpents and harmless as doves” (Matthew 10:16). We are obviously not called to aggression; but on the other hand, we are not called to be doormats either. We must be harmless, but we also need to be as wise as a snake, or we could end up in serious trouble. It isn’t God’s will for His people to lose their businesses to the devil, so please take heed to what I am about to write here: If you own a bakery, by all means sell your cakes to anyone who wants one; everyone has to eat! On the other hand, you are not required to decorate it in a manner that goes against your faith in God and His Holy Word. Bake anyone a cake, but if they want you to plant two brides, or two grooms on it, you can tell them in advance you are not going to do that, but to save your business, offer to bake the cake! Offer to sell them bride and groom sets; it’s none of your business what they do with them, or if their hands put two brides on the cake. In this manner, you will not lose your business and you will be able to continue feeding your family. If your conscience will not allow you to do that, you need to sell your business, unless you might enjoy giving it to servants of the devil! The Apostle Paul provided an example that can be compared to this situation, about eating meats sacrificed to idols, which was forbidden by God (1 Corinthians 10:23-31). Florists, sell your flowers to anyone and everyone. It is none of your business what people do with the flowers after you sell them. If it bothers your conscience to sell them to someone that you know will use them for a gay wedding, sell your business and go into business doing something that will not compromise your faith and conscience. Ask God for guidance and He will direct your path, if you are obedient to His will. Now is the time for all Christians to sell businesses that might compromise their faith and conscience, or cause them to have to give their businesses to servants of the devil; now is the time! Definitely, if you own a bed and breakfast, hotel, motel or inn establishment, it is past the time to sell that business and get into a business where you are not going to facilitate fornicators and adulterers! You may be fond of your business, but guess what? You aren’t going to take it with you! Now is the time; we are living in the last of the last days. Be as the “sons of Issachar.” “The children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do…” 1 Chronicles 12:32 (emphasis added). It isn’t coincidental that as the angels of the Lord brought Lot, his wife and daughters out of the City of Sodom, the Lord told them, “Escape for your life; do not look behind you, neither stay in the plain; escape to the mountain, lest you be consumed” Genesis 19:17 (emphasis added). Please understand that Lot and his family were fleeing Sodom – it was time to escape the militant homosexuals and not look back! That time is right now for our generation. Sell those businesses that might compromise your faith and do not look back! From this point forward, things are only going to get worse, friends, much worse. Shortly after Jesus said He would return when the days become as the days of Lot, He also said, “Remember Lot’s wife” Luke 17:32. If you know the story, Lot’s wife looked back and she turned into a pillar of salt. Sell, and don’t look back, rather look up! “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up and lift up your heads, for your redemption draws near” Luke 21:28 (emphasis added). Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth (Revelation 20:12-15)? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you. During the persecutions of Protestants by the Roman Catholics in the valleys of Piedmont, during the Seventeenth Century, Paul Armand was hacked to pieces; a child named Daniel Bertino was burnt to death; Daniel Michialino had his tongue plucked out and was left to perish in that condition; and Andreo Bertino, a very old man who was lame, was mangled in a most shocking manner and at length had his belly ripped open and his bowels carried about on the point of a halbert. Excerpts taken from Fox’s Book of Martyrs – Zondervan Publishing House (1926) A few hundred years ago, Fox’s Book of Martyrs was chained to every pulpit, alongside the Holy Bible. I suppose people decided to turn their heads away from such violent crimes and become more “dignified.” We dishonor those who suffered by burying their testimonies and martyrdom. It also seems most churches today are too “dignified” for the Holy Spirit and fire, Who fell on the apostles of the early church (Acts 2)! The Catholic Church has never issued an apology for the crimes committed during the Inquisition and the brutal torture and murders of Protestant Christians, who denounced papal authority, denied Purgatory, the selling of indulgences in sin, the worship of idols, and prayers to the saints and the Virgin Mary. Neither has any reparation been made to the heirs of the saints who suffered such vile persecutions from the Catholic Church. Protestants were brutally murdered by Catholics by way of burning them alive at the stake, flaying alive, hangings, cutting them to pieces, burying them alive, drowning, torturing them on the rack, whereby bones were broken and bodies ripped apart, beheading them, etc… The property and assets were seized of those heinously murdered by the Catholic Church from about the Twelfth Century through around the 1820s, not that long ago. The Vatican sits atop the blood of the saints. Revelation 18 describes her brutal end for heresies and having committed such abominable crimes. “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that you be not partakers of her sins and that you receive not of her plagues” Revelation 18:4. God is calling His sincere believers to come out of the Catholic abomination, before it’s too late!

Extremely biased high school history textbook casts Christians and Trump supporters as RACISTS and BIGOTS

Posted on April 18, 2018 in Education // 5 Comments

(National Sentinel) Indoctrination: A new version of the AP U.S. History textbook for primary school students reportedly contains bias against President Donald J. Trump and suggests that white Christians are racists and xenophobes. Alex Clark, a radio talk show host of WNOW’s “The Joe and Alex Show” posted pictures of the book and its contents on Twitter after the publisher, Pearson Education, sent samples of the new version to public schools to encourage administrations to buy it, according to Fox News. The book also features sections on the Black Lives Matter movement and the 2016 presidential election. Author James Fraser, of New York University, portrays Christians, conservatives, and Trump supporters as bigots who fear non-whites. “In case you didn’t think there was an effort going on in public schools to indoctrinate kids with an anti-conservative agenda, a friend of mine took pictures and highlighted parts of this AP US History book,” she tweeted with pictures of the book containing highlighted passages. “There are specific parts where it goes off the rails from a historical textbook toward an op-ed,” Minnesota Rosemount High School student Tarra Snyder told Fox News. “It was really, really surprising to me. I really believe that learning should be objective and that students can make their own decisions based on what they’re able to learn in a classroom; and if the facts are skewed, then students aren’t able to make well-rounded decisions on what they believe,” Snyder continued. One section of the book is titled, “The Angry Election of 2016,” and it describes Trump’s supporters as “mostly older, often rural or suburban, and overwhelmingly white.” In addition, the section labels the president’s supporters from the perspective of supporters of Hillary Clinton as “people who were afraid of a rapidly developing ethnic diversity of the country, discomfort with their candidate’s gender, and nostalgia for an earlier time in the nation’s history.” Meanwhile, Clinton’s supporters are said to be ‘worried about the mental stability of the president-elect and the anger that he and his supporters brought to the nation,” the book notes. In actuality, it was supporters of Clinton and her one-time challenger, socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, who spawned Antifa and similar far-Left movements whose members and supporters treated Trump supporters so viciously that Obama’s FBI and Department of Homeland Security labeled them domestic terrorists. In addition, the book claims that white Christians feared the increase in minorities in the years following the 2012 election, the author claims. “Those who had long thought of the nation as a white and Christian country sometimes found it difficult to adjust,” the book says. Regarding the president, Fraser says he exhibits “not-very-hidden racism” and “extremism.”

New York Gov. Cuomo grants 35,000 paroled felons right to vote; GOP sees 'power grab'

By Lukas Mikelionis | Fox News

In an executive order signed Wednesday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo granted some 35,000 paroled felons the right to vote. The move by the second-term Democrat came after state Republicans blocked a bill in the state Senate. “I’m unwilling to take no for an answer,” Cuomo said at the annual convention of the Rev. Al Sharpton's National Action Network in New York City. “I’m going to make it law by executive order.” The new directive includes New York in a list of 14 states and the District of Columbia that allow felons to vote in elections after serving their sentence. “It is unconscionable to deny voting rights to New Yorkers who have paid their debt and have re-entered society,” Cuomo said in a statement. “This reform will reduce disenfranchisement and will help restore justice and fairness to our democratic process. Withholding or delaying voting rights diminishes our democracy.” Cuomo said that nearly three-fourths of parolees in New York are black or Latino, and allowing parolees to vote will help them to reconnect with the community. But Republicans disagree and already started pouncing on Cuomo over the new measure. Republican Senate Leader John Flanagan said Wednesday that the order was bad public policy and could potentially be illegal because the governor ignored the Legislature. Ed Cox, chairman of the state Republican Party, in a statement, called the directive an “outrageous power grab” in a bid to appeal to “radical primary voters,” according to the New York Times. Cuomo is facing an energized Democratic primary challenge from "Sex and the City" star Cynthia Nixon, who has repeatedly attacked the governor from the left and for failing to support minorities in the state. The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Israel Braces For Iranian Counterstrike

The Israel Defense Forces on Tuesday revealed new information about the deployment of Iranian air defenses in Syria, further exposing Tehran's attempts to entrench itself militarily in the war-torn country. In an apparent effort at deterrence, Israeli media was provided by the IDF with a map showing five Iranian-controlled bases in Syria, which would apparently constitute potential targets for an Israeli response should Iran carry out any kind of attack. Tensions between Israel and Iran have been steadily escalating since an Iranian drone that breached Israeli airspace on Feb. 10 was shot down by the Israeli Air Force. Israeli fighter jets later targeted the mobile control center of the T-4 air base from which it was piloted. Seven members of Iran's elite Quds Force were killed in the strike, including the commander of its drone unit in Syria. The drone appeared to be a relatively new stealth model known as a Saeqeh, whose design was stolen from an American unmanned aerial vehicle that was captured by Iran in 2011, according to aviation analysts. During the Syrian counterattack against the Israeli jets, one F-16 was hit by anti-aircraft fire and crashed in a field in northern Israel after the pilot and navigator ejected from it. In response to that downing of the fighter jet, Israel launched a large-scale attack on Syria's air defenses, destroying between one-third and one-half of its capabilities, according to the IDF. IDF spokesman Brigadier General Ronen Manelis reported that the Iranian drone operated from T-4 which had been armed, and was en route to carry out an attack on Israeli forces, and was not merely on an information-gathering mission. One senior Israeli security official told The New York Times that attempted attack was unprecedented, and represented a shift in Iranian policy. "This is the first time we saw Iran do something against Israel -- not by proxy," the senior Israeli security official said. "This opened a new period." According to Tuesday's report by Channel 10, Iran's build up in Syria in preparation for a direct conflict with the Jewish state has included the deployment of advanced airborne weapons platforms - including drone aircraft - shipments of weapons disguised as humanitarian aid, and Iranian military flights conducted under the cover of civilian airline companies. Fuming over the strike, Iran has vowed to exact vengeance on Israel. Tehran is now believed to be preparing for a sustained campaign of direct confrontation with Israel, with plans to use the Iranian military's growing presence in Syria to launch attacks on targets inside the Jewish state. For decades, the radical Islamist regime in Tehran has engaged in a de facto war with Israel via proxies - using terror groups in the Gaza Strip and Lebanon to attack Israeli civilian and military targets. On Tuesday, however, Israeli security officials revealed that Iran is now preparing for a direct assault on Israel, using its growing military assets on Israel's northern border to strike targets inside the Jewish state. Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said Monday that "Israel will receive a blow for what it did at the T4 base. The days when the Zionist regime would hit and run are over. ... I suggest to the Israelis to refrain from foolish steps if they want to continue their treacherous existence," he warned. The IDF said Tuesday that the deployment of Iranian air defenses in Syria was personally supervised by Quds Force commander Maj. Gen. Ghasem Soleimani, one of the most powerful military figures in the Iranian regime. Iran has access to a variety of surface-to-surface missiles, from short-range Fajr-5 rockets to medium-range Fateh 110 missiles, which have a range of approximately 300 kilometers (190 miles) to long-range Shehab ballistic missiles capable of hitting targets over 1,300 kilometers (800 miles) away. To counter those threats, Israel has a multi-tiered missile defense system consisting of the Iron Dome for short-range rockets and mortar shells, the David's Sling for medium-range missiles and the Arrow for long-range ballistic missiles. Israel sees Iran, which has vowed to destroy the Jewish state, as its central enemy in the region. Israeli officials have repeatedly stated that Israel will not allow Iran to entrench itself in Syria, marking it as a "red line" that it will fight militarily if necessary. Many Bible scholars believe we may be starting to see a foreshadowing of a much larger conflict described in the book of Ezekiel in which many nations (including Russia & Iran) launch an attack on Israel and are miraculously defeated by God's direct intervention. Learn more how the converging of events at this time in history could impact you and your family and what other events the Bible predicts are on the horizon.

Hezbollah’s war of words telegraphs Iran’s message to Jerusalem

Why send the Hezbollah messenger?

By Seth J. Frantzman April 18, 2018 06:50

Israel and Iran are in “direct confrontation,” Naim al-Qassem, Hezbollah’s deputy secretary-general, warned on Tuesday. His comments should be interpreted as a message to Jerusalem that the gloves are coming off in Tehran and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps is angry about alleged Israeli strikes on Iranian assets in Syria. The strike on the T4 air base on April 9 was a blow to Iran, more than just an attempt to do what some Israeli experts have called “mowing the grass” to reduce threats. Efraim Inbar and Eitan Shamir argued in a 2014 paper that “Israel’s strategy in the 21st century against hostile non-state groups, reflects the assumption that Israel finds itself in a protracted intractable conflict.” Use of force is designed to weaken the enemy, not to achieve “impossible political goals.” An impossible goal would be to remove Iran entirely from Syria. Why send the Hezbollah messenger? Because Tehran prefers to send mixed messages as part of its strategy. “Israel is trying to draw lines, limiting the ‘resistance axis’ and its freedom of action,” Qassem said. He claimed, as Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah has in the past, that Israel does not want a real war. Hezbollah claims that its and the rest of Iran’s proxies and “axis of resistance’s” freedom of action will not be curtailed by Israel. Iran is still mourning the seven IRGC soldiers killed the air strike on its T4 base in Syria, including Col. Mehdi Dehgan, who led its drone unit. We know now that the February attempt by Iran to fly a drone into Israel was a greater threat than previously reported. It was armed with explosives and, according to reports, not meant to merely test or harass. Iranian regime media is playing up the Hezbollah comments. Press TV and Fars News both have it on their homepages, claiming “Israel won’t be allowed to set rules of engagement in Syria.” Press TV also is attempting to highlight Israel’s alleged violation of Syrian airspace and flouting Russian air defense in Syria, by claiming that Israel has said it will not have its actions limited in Syria. Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on Monday that “sooner or later” Tehran will respond to Israel’s “hostile policies.” Should all this be believed? Hezbollah keeps saying that Israel does not want a real war. Hezbollah says that limits must be set on Israel’s actions. Tehran reports that Hezbollah wants those limits put into place. It almost seems like each one is passing the buck to the other, hoping to goad the other into taking action. And if not Hezbollah or Tehran, then they want to encourage Russia to do something in Syria to curtail what they claim is Israel’s impunity.

With Great Trouble Dead Ahead, End Times Characters Jockey Into Position As 'Epic Event With Prophetic Implications' Happens Next Month

- As We Head For A Date With Destiny, The Month Of May Be The Tipping Point That Kicks It All Off

By Pastor Dick Carmack - All News Pipeline April 19, 2018

Seventy years ago, Zipporah ("Zippy") Porath had joined the Haganah (defense forces) and received training as a medic. In her book, “Letters from Jerusalem, 1947-1948,” she wrote; “Our soldiers are like no others I'VE ever seen. They don't have much to fight with besides guts and determination. No swagger, spit or polish. No drinking, no shirking. Doing the dirtiest jobs, they sing and joke -- even in the fiercest moments, and never with a "here today and gone tomorrow" attitude. Tomorrow is what it’s all about.” Independence for Israel (as detailed in the book above) was won in May of 1948 (70 years ago next month) with “blood, sweat and tears” followed by a Declaration of Independence and the establishment of the Jewish state. With that the time-line of end-times events began. In human history no other single event has more importance than the re-gathering of the Jewish people into one nation. The beginning of the end of latter days prophecy, which began about six thousand years ago had reached its first major plateau with that event. When the modern state of Israel was established a time-table was set. We don’t yet know all the details but as the days go by, the pages flip and we see the chart a little better. One thing seems clear, we are headed for a date with destiny and May, 2018 may well be the tipping point that kicks it off. Re 1:3 ¶ Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. In the last Seventy years the state of Israel has weathered many storms. They began with the odds stacked heavily against them (5 Arab countries to 1 beleaguered small group of Jews) with their declaration of Independence but in spite of it fought off the innumerable hordes of Islam which have only multiplied since as the years progressed. The re-gathering and the existence of Israel is the single most important prophetic sign of the wind-up of history. Just as the beginning of the human experience began in Genesis, the end details are written not only in Revelation but also in the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke as well as many prophetic books like Daniel, Zechariah, Ezekiel, Isaiah and Jeremiah. There, as well as some of the smaller books we can see the hand of God writing crisp and clear as He gives us the signs to look for in our curiosity of how it will all play out. The hands of our clock continue their inexorable clicking toward the second coming of Christ, we can’t see the numbers but we can hear the noises loud and clear. The Bible prophesies wars and rumors of wars as we near the end and we certainly have that. As this is being written Trump has just sent a hundred of so missiles into Syria while Russia ponders their response. A reply in some manner is necessary lest they appear as a paper tiger to the world. Will they lose face or will they respond in kind? If not in kind, how will they respond? Prophecy foretells a period it calls “the times of the Gentiles.” Lu 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. Re 11:2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. The question is, from where is the forty two months measured? As much of prophecy is, until more historical events occur, there will be confusion and disagreement over the prophecy in Luke. Taking Luke 21:24 in context which we must do, this takes place during a time when Jerusalem is compassed about with armies (vs. 20) either making it an historical reference to the siege of Jerusalem of 70 A.D., or a reference to a siege during the Crusades (1099 or 1187) or an event yet to come. On the assumption, while others may disagree, it is a yet future event, this article is about the kick-off date. There is coming a time in the probable near future, when Israel will once more come under direct attack by its neighbors. War is obviously building in the region with different alignments coming into play as end-time characters jockey for position. Recently we have seen an unlikely alliance forming between Saudi Arabia and Israel, a common front against Iran and its aggression in Yemen and Syria (Sunni vs. Shia). Then throw in the possibility of another war described in Psalm 83 and the mix becomes more deadly. The Bible names the players in Ezekiel 38 with that war and mentions in Zechariah 12:2,3 Jerusalem will be both a “cup of trembling” and a “burdensome stone.” Great trouble obviously lies dead ahead. On May 15 this year re-gathered Israel will celebrate its 70th birthday since becoming a nation once again on that date in 1948. The nation is focusing on a celebration but the Bible focuses on the coming troubles. Because the number seven carries such great significance in Bible prophecy, many eyes are on Israel in an attempt to determine whether or not the coming 70th birthday will herald war or other prophesied events. Will next month be the start of the great tribulation? Will 70 be a significant number in the future of God’s Chosen people? Will some sort of a military attack take place on that date or will something else happen? What is the significance of the Trump Administration’s backing of Israel by the decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capitol? Is that an integral piece of the puzzle? Does the number seven apply to these end-time arrangements? The highest priority of God is salvation for all people, including all of the enemies of Israel. In His infinite wisdom He is setting up world events to bring about the maximum harvest of souls (and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me.) Ezekiel says when the armies of Gog come against the “mountains of Israel” He will turn them back (Eze 39:2)… and leave but the sixth part of thee…, In other words, 83% of the invading armies will be destroyed, not by Israel but by the Almighty Himself. Five out of six will die on the mountains. How will it happen? The Bible says not by raining fire down from heaven, but by messing with the minds of the soldiers and turning them against each other. Eze 38:21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother. So we watch May 15 in Israel as they celebrate their re-gathering and re-birth as a nation and try to discern where we are approximately in the Biblical count-down. Are we in the “beginning of sorrows?” or perhaps a little farther along. Is the “great tribulation” about to begin, or will the unbiblical false doctrine of a “pre-trib” rapture somehow whisk us all away from that time of extreme trouble? Mt 24:32 ¶ Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. The fig tree is the key indicator of how we will be able to discern our position in the scheme of final events of TEOTWAWKI. Effort is required on the part of the reader if he wants to know where we are as everything comes to a head. When it comes to biblical prophecy we don’t learn by osmosis. Discernment comes by study and by prayer, commodities in which we all are lacking. A diligent searching of the Word and proper dividing of it is required if we are to properly understand where we are. Lu 21:32 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. If we put it all together yes, we are having and hearing of wars and rumors of war (Mt 24:6). And yes, there are famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes (7) testifying we are at least in the beginning of the final act. And at least in many parts of the world believers are being delivered up and killed but there still seems a long way to go. Christians in America so far seem far away from being put to death for their faith. Persecution? Obviously yes, considering bakers being forced to cook for perverts wanting to marry other perverts. But we are not yet being hunted like animals which is bound to come according to prophecy. Nor has the Gospel been preached in all of the world though several ministries are making a valiant effort. Yet the text tells us the fig tree is putting forth leaves and it’s high time we start looking after the things of God instead of the things of the world. In the midst of it all we must not forget the gospel (good news) of Christ is available to all who will call on His name.

Christian Pilot Praised for Poise in Face of Disaster: 'God Sent His Angels to Watch over Us!'

Veronica Neffinger | Editor, ChristianHeadlines.com | Wednesday, April 18, 2018

A Southwest Airlines pilot who was forced to make an emergency landing on Tuesday relied on her faith to keep calm in the tense situation. Charisma News reports that Tammie Jo Shults had to think fast when the plane she was piloting en route to Dallas from New York City lost one of its engines while airborne at 32,000 feet. Shults was forced to make an emergency landing in Philadelphia. She radioed the Philadelphia air traffic controller, calmly saying, “So we have a part of the aircraft missing so we’re going to need to slow down a bit.” She also told personnel at the Philadelphia International Airport that they would be needed an ambulance for injured passengers. Shults was able to safely land the plane in Philadelphia, although one passenger died after she was nearly sucked out of a broken window. Many of the passengers commended Shults on her poise in the face of disaster. "The pilot Tammy Jo was so amazing! She landed us safely in Philly," said passenger Amanda Bourman on Instagram. "God sent his angels to watch over us. I actually heard someone say, there is a God!!" Shults herself identifies as a Christian. She gained experience as a pilot while in the U.S. Navy, flying F-18 fighter jets. Her skills landing planes at high speeds certainly helped her bring her passengers to safety on the Southwest flight. Shults also said she views her career as a way to shine a light for Christ. She says she is given "the opportunity to witness for Christ on almost every flight." Photo courtesy: Wikipedia Publication date: April 18, 2018

Russia’s just made a secret delivery to Syria. What does the smokescreen hide?

RUSSIA’s up to something in Syria. Cargo ships have begun offloading heavy equipment while hiding it from view under a thick smokescreen.

Jamie Seidel News Corp Australia Network April 19, 20186:09pm

RUSSIA responded an attack on Syrian chemical weapons facilities by the US, Britain and France last week by promising to supply the rogue state with advanced new missiles. Moscow insisted there would be consequences. But the only action it detailed was supplying President Bassar al-Assad with better air defences. It may be in the process of delivering. Unconfirmed reports suggest cargo ships have docked at the Russian naval base of Tartus on the Syrian coast. This in itself is not unusual. What is odd is that, according to pro-Syrian regime sources, they’re unloading their cargo in secret — under the cover of smoke and aerosol gas intended to block prying eyes, satellite and drone sensors. What the ships are carrying is unknown. They have been tracked by military analysts and watchers passing through the Black Sea and the Bosphorus Strait into the Mediterranean in recent days. But speculation is rife they may be delivering advanced S-300 interceptor missiles, their radars and heavy wheeled transports. Such a weapon system, while one generation behind Russia’s state-of-the-art, could dramatically increase Syria’s ability to shoot down Western (and Israeli) missiles — and combat aircraft. If proven correct, this would represent another escalation in the drawn-out conflict wracking the Middle Eastern nation. Russia has already reportedly sold the S-300 to Iran. A standard unit is capable of launching up to six of the missiles, each able to be guided some 200km towards its target. A much older, but recently upgraded, Russian missile system was last month used by Syria to damage an Israeli F-16 fighter jet as it engaged in a strike run over its territory. Israeli media is reporting analysts and former defence officials as saying there can be only one response to Syria posessing state-of-the-art S-300 missiles: Blowing them up. Such an act could threaten to escalate the seven-year-old civil war, and widen the conflict to neighboring states - as well as Russia and the United States. In February it was reported up to 200 Russian mercenaries were killed or wounded after US forces counterattacked to defend a facility its troops shared with rebel and Kurdish forces near the Euphrates city of Deir Ezzor. RELATED: What we know about Russia’s Su57 stealth fighter Later, Moscow deployed at least two of its most advanced stealth fighters to the airfield it controls near Tartus, named Kmeimim. This raised fears of yet further confusion leading to clashes between Russian and Coalition forces.

How Will Iran Respond To The Syria Attacks?

We can consider the April 14th airstrikes against the Syrian regime’s chemical infrastructure as a point of no return in regards to this country’s future developments. For many years Bashar Assad and Iran were able to take the utmost advantage of the Obama administration’s policy of appeasement, and thus pave the path for Russia’s entrance into the Middle East. The main victims have been directly the peoples of Syria, Iraq, Yemen and other regional states. Iran seeks to respond to these attacks, both to lift the spirits of its military and security forces across the country, and in regards to the regional balance of power. Facing increasing anti-government protests and its consequences, however, Tehran lacks the capacity to take on measures outside of its borders . Considered Assad’s main sponsor after spending dozens of billions of dollars in Syria, Iran had prior to these attacks threatened repeatedly that such a US-led initiative will not go unanswered. Tehran, however, has yet to take any action after the early morning April 14th airstrikes, while further reports in Middle East outlets indicate other bases associated to the Assad regime and Iran-backed militias in Syria are being targeted. Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei unprecedentedly described the leaders of the United States, France and the United Kingdom as “criminals,” going against all diplomatic norms. Can such remarks be considered a green light for terrorist attacks by Iran and/or its affiliates? The semi-official Tasnim news agency, associated to Iran’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) Quds Force, claims the Asaeb al-Haq, a 40,000- strong militia group affiliated to Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Force (PMF) with long-term relations with Iran, has several units currently besieging U.S. forces stationed in the Al Zahra airbase located northwest of Baghdad. Tehran’s rulers are comprehending clearly how Obama’s appeasement policy, in the face of this regime’s crimes inside the country and those of its affiliated militias abroad, has ended. Ever since the Trump administration has entered the White House, we have witnessed firm actions against Iran’s belligerence, rendering significant results. For some time, we are no longer hearing reports of IRGC boats harassing US warships in international waters of the Persian Gulf. It has been months since Tehran last test-launched a ballistic missile. Instead they are using Yemen’s Houthis to launch Iranian missiles into Saudi Arabia to both cover any tracks and save face to some extent. In the nationwide uprisings of the past months that rocked the very pillars of Tehran’s entire apparatus, the Iranian people are extensively protesting the regime’s Middle East meddling. This, parallel to the recent currency nosedive crisis, is preventing the Iranian regime from executing widespread military initiatives in the region. Trump’s firm policy has also forced North Korea to agree into significantly curbing its nuclear weapons program and ballistic missiles. Russia, able to voice demands in the past few years due to Obama’s weakness and gaining a significant Middle East foothold through its Syria campaign, refused to respond to the US-led airstrikes against Assad’s forces.

Airstrikes by US, allies failed to significantly reduce Syria's chemical weapons capabilities: report

By Gregg Re | Fox News

Airstrikes conducted by the United States, France and Britain against Syria last week failed to have a major impact on President Bashar al-Assad’s chemical weapons capabilities, according to a new report. Assad's chemical weapons are believed to be strategically hidden in a variety of hard-to-target locations, four U.S. officials who insisted on anonymity told Reuters. U.S. intelligence officials suspect some of those locations include apartments and school buildings -- making them veritable "human shields" for the biological weapons, one of the officials told Reuters. But in the aftermath of the coordinated airstrikes, which hit a chemical weapons research center near Damascus and two storage facilities, U.S. and British officials stressed that they had been extremely careful to avoid any civilian casualties. British Prime Minister Theresa May, for example, described the attack as a "limited and targeted strike that does not further escalate tensions in the region and that does everything possible to prevent civilian casualties." MARC THIESSEN: SYRIA STRIKE WAS 'JUST MUSCULAR ENOUGH NOT TO GET MOCKED,' HURT US CREDIBILITY The strikes, which President Trump called "very successful," did not cause any reported casualties. In fact, according to The Washington Post, they prompted a celebration to break out when pro-government supporters realized that the airstrikes were limited. While French, British, and U.S. officials have said the Syrian government used chlorine gas in an attack on civilians earlier this month, both Syria and Russia strongly contest that claim. A similar chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun in April 2017 that killed nearly 100 people prompted the U.S. to launch dozens of cruise missiles at a Syrian airfield to dissuade Assad from using chemical weapons in the future, officials said. "Clearly the Assad regime did not get the message last year," Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said last week. "This time our allies and we have struck harder." But Russia has accused the U.S. of consistent hypocrisy, saying the White House hasn't acted consistently with its claimed goal of ending the seven-year conflict in Syria. Against that tumultuous backdrop, the U.N. Security Council is set to meet this weekend at a Swedish estate for its annual retreat.

Military Terrorism Complex

By Hal Lindsey

Not long ago in this space, I talked about one of the most underreported facts of the Middle East — that the Lebanese terror group known as Hezbollah has a larger stockpile of missiles than all NATO countries (except the U.S.) combined. The terror group is reported to have approximately 150,000 missiles in the field, ready to go. Hezbollah is the most powerful non-state military actor in the world. They have 20,000 active duty troops and another 25,000 reservists. They are known to have a vast number of deep and sophisticated tunnel and bunker complexes across southern Lebanon, and entering Israel under its northern border. Where does a terrorist group get the weapons and money to build such an immense military machine? It primarily comes from their fellow Shiite Muslims in Iran. In June, we learned that Hezbollah’s military capabilities have taken a dramatic turn. ISIS differentiated itself from other terror groups by taking territory from existing nations, and attempting to build a caliphate on it. But Hezbollah has done them one better. They are building their own industrial infrastructure capable of producing precision weapons, primarily missiles. Israeli Defense Forces Intelligence Chief, Maj.-Gen. Herzl Halevi, said, “We are seeing Hezbollah building a domestic military industry on Lebanese soil based on Iranian know-how. Hezbollah is producing weapons systems and transporting them to southern Lebanon…. Over the past year, Iran is working to establish infrastructure for the independent production of precision weapons in Lebanon and Yemen.” In 2006, Israel and Hezbollah fought a 34-day war. It ended with the Lebanese cabinet, Hezbollah’s strongman leader, and the Israeli Knesset agreeing to the terms of UN Security Council Resolution 1701. Among other things, that resolution provided for “the disarmament of all armed groups in Lebanon…. There will be no weapons or authority in Lebanon other than that of the Lebanese State.” That should have been the end of an armed Hezbollah. But instead, they have had an explosion of military capability in the intervening years. In other words, Hezbollah’s promise isn’t worth the paper it’s written on, and the UN remains a toothless tiger. The resolution also required Hezbollah to stay north of the Litani River. It runs about 18 miles north of and roughly parallel to Lebanon’s border with Israel. Most of their force remains north of the river, but they are building observation towers next to the border. You might wonder how UN peacekeepers could overlook something so obvious. Before I tell you how Hezbollah gets away with it, go ahead and swallow any liquid you may be drinking — because this could definitely provoke choking. Hezbollah is able to work along the border because they made up their own environmental organization — “Green Without Borders.” They say they plan to plant a million trees. Oh, and they just happen to want to plant those trees in South Lebanon — near the border with Israel. Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) released photographs and video showing “Green Without Borders” building large observation towers along the border. The UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) issued a statement supposedly contradicting the IDF. It says its members have “not observed any unauthorized armed persons at the locations or found any basis to report a violation of resolution 1701.” But Israel did not accuse Hezbollah of sending “armed persons” south of the Litani. They accused them of building observation towers. UNIFIL did not deny the basic accusation, nor did they explain why a group whose primary purpose is to plant trees, needs observation towers directly on the border. UNIFIL was formed in 2006, not only to keep Hezbollah north of the Litani River, but to oversee Hezbollah’s disarmament. During the intervening years, Hezbollah’s military power has grown into something far greater than that of most nations. After a failure of such proportions, how does UNIFIL have any credibility left? With ISIS, the world saw the danger, and nations have been cooperating to rein it in. But with Hezbollah, the nations of the world are turning a blind eye, despite the obvious and massive violations of UN resolutions. Only Israel seems concerned about Hezbollah. And it should be. Look at a map of the region. With Damascus and other key Syrian assets in the hands of Iran and Russia, Iran has a direct pipeline to Hezbollah in Lebanon. And with Iran’s growing oil wealth, they can give Hezbollah all the assets it needs. In the early 1980s, Iran created Hezbollah. Now, the terror group has become an extension of Iran’s power in the region. Hezbollah caused massive difficulties for Israel in 2006. At that time, they had 15,000 rockets. Now they have ten times that number. Plus, the 150,000 missiles they presently have are both more sophisticated and more destructive than the 15,000 from eleven years ago. The old ones didn’t have nearly the payload of the new ones, nor did they have the precision guidance systems of the new ones. These weapons are not defensive, but offensive in nature. Hezbollah and Iran have made their intentions clear. They mean to destroy Israel from the face of the earth. God promises to preserve Israel during and after the current regathering, but the nation will experience terrible days. With Hezbollah and so many other armies poised to strike their small nation, you can see why Israel will one day agree to a peace treaty with Antichrist. He will promise what they will crave most — peace and safety. And then he will deliver a reign of destruction. In the end, however, all God’s promises to Israel will be kept. At the end of the book, they turn to the true Messiah. They win… as do all those who put their trust in Jesus.

China Issues Decree that Demands All Christians Register With the Government in the Henan Province

Updated: April 16, 2018 at 9:52 am EST See Comments

Published: April 16, 2018 By Nate Brown For The Christian Journal

The Chinese government issued a notice declaring that all who are religiously affiliated in the Henan Province must register with the government in Anyang, the northernmost city in the region. The order declares that Christians, Buddhists, Taoists, and Muslims must register; however, according to a source that spoke to ChinaAid, the communist government is only going after those who identify as Christians. “In the past two months, the government banned all Catholic churches and (Protestant) house churches, and that didn’t happen to any other religions.” Over the past several months China has ramped up the amount of censorship, imprisonment, and abuse of Christians which the Christian Journal has documented. An officer in China, from the Pingyuan Neighborhood Committee, speaking to ChinaAid stated that all who are religiously affiliated are required to register, but she did not believe that the order was a cause for alarm. “Bring your household registration and ID card to register,” she said. “Fill out a form, fill in your name, birth date, address, religious background, when you converted, the religious background of your family members, etc.” The order, obtained by ChinaAid, details can be seen below; Historically, when a government has required a specific ideology, gender, or race to register the intent was malicious. For example, in 1937 and 1938 the German Jews were required to register their property which in turn disallowed them from earning a living. Furthermore, “In August 1938, German authorities decreed that by January 1, 1939, Jewish men and women bearing first names of “non-Jewish” origin had to add “Israel” and “Sara,” respectively, to their given names. All Jews were obliged to carry identity cards that indicated their Jewish heritage, and, in the autumn of 1938, all Jewish passports were stamped with an identifying letter ’J.'” The Chinese government has displayed actions that starkly remind citizens of a China under Mao Zedong.

First known epidemic of drug-resistant typhoid is spreading through Pakistan, infecting at least 850 people over the past two years - as doctors admit: 'We're out of options'

The strain of typhoid has become resistant to five types of antibiotics

It is expected to replace weaker strains in areas where they are more common

Azithromycin is the only remaining method of combating the disease

The highly infectious condition causes high fevers, headaches and vomiting

A drug-resistant strain of typhoid is spreading through Pakistan and has infected at least 850 people since 2016. The strain which is resistant to five types of antibiotics is predicted to spread across the globe, according to the National Institute of Health Islamabad. It is expected to replace the weaker strains in areas where they are common as experts recognise just one remaining working antibiotic. Azithromycin is the only remaining method of combating the disease however just one more genetic mutation could void the use of the drug. Campaigners are predicting that if modern sanitation systems don't tackle the pathogen then we could be faced with a return to the pre-antibiotic era. Dr Rumina Hasan, a pathology professor at the Aga Khan University in Pakistan, told the NY Times that this wasn't just about typhoid. He said: 'Antibiotic resistance is a threat to all of modern medicine - and the scary part is, we're out of options.' Around 21 million suffer from typhoid each year, with about 161,000 fatalities, caused by the Salmonelle Typi bacteria. The highly infectious condition causes high fevers, headaches and vomiting which is transmitted by contaminated food or water. Typhoid is endemic to Pakistan due to its poor infrastructure, low vaccination rates and overpopulated areas. The outbreak in 2016 saw patients become resistant to the drug ceftriaxone which is used to treat strains of typhoid. Before this only four isolated cases of resistance to this drug had been reported, according to Dr Elizabeth Klemm. It is suspected that the outbreak began due to the large amount of victims who were clustered around the sewage lines in the city of Hyderabad with four deaths reported so far. There has been one case reported in the UK which is thought to be travel-related. Health officials are promoting preventative measures, such as vaccination, boiling drinking water and hygiene. Dr Klemm said that there are several worst-case scenarios for the outbreak which is that migration causes it to spread or that it appears elsewhere unaided. Doctors still prescribe an estimated 50 million doses of antibiotics for typhoid globally each year as antibiotic resistance is increasing by 30 percent each year. In order to prevent the disease becoming untreatable officials are trying to vaccinate 250,000 children in Hyderabad which lasts for five years and can be given to someone as young as six-months-old.

Machete Attack Every 90 Minutes in ‘Gun-Free’ Britain

by Liam Deacon15 Apr 2018

Recorded machete attacks in the UK have shot up by nearly five times in just three years, with the majority in the capital, London. The huge number of crimes committed with the deadly, sword-like weapons means there is an average of 15 a day in the UK, or one every 90 minutes. Figures uncovered using freedom of information requests by the Daily Mail show that police dealt with 928 crimes involving machetes in the last two months of 2017. London saw the bulk, with 425 of the attacks. There were 99 in Greater Manchester, 77 in the West Midlands, and 29 each in Merseyside and West Yorkshire. Just three years earlier, the deadly blades were used in 100 crimes a month over the same period. As violent crime surges across the country, and even faster in London, the long blades, designed for chopping undergrowth, appear to be a weapon of choice for criminals in the UK, which is governed by strict gun-control laws. In January, Office of National Statistics (ONS) figures showed that in the year to September 2017 the police recorded 37,443 offences involving a knife or sharp instrument. This represents a sharp rise of 21 per cent increase on the previous year, and the highest number of blade attacks since records began seven years ago. The rise in knife crime was larger in London, jumping by 38 per cent, and gang-related acid attacks are also on the rise. Across the UK, violent crime overall surged by 20 per cent, robbery was up by 29 per cent, and sex offences surged by 23 per cent. Since 2011, the number of offences involving a knife or a sharp instrument had been falling, but began rising in the past three years, the ONS explained. London under the leadership of Labour Mayor Sadiq Khan has experienced more than 50 murders so far this year – surpassing the number recorded in New York City over the same period for the first time.

Robert Mueller Turned Blind Eye To Backpage And Child Sex Trafficking, So Please Stop Acting As If He Is Some Paragon Of Virtue

- Mueller's Failure To Act Resulted In The Sexual Abuse And Death Of Children

April 15, 2018 By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine

I am sick and tired of liberals, Democratic politicians and NeverTrumpers treating former FBI Director and now-special counsel Robert Mueller as some paragon of virtue for no other reasons than their intense Trump Derangement Syndrome, when a look at one of Mueller's worst failures actually highlights a man of questionable tactics, ethics and morals. BACKPAGE'S CHILD TRAFFICKING BEGAN DURING MUELLER'S TENURE AS FBI DIRECTOR Previously ANP reported on the seizure of the Backpage website and affiliated websites, along with a follow up on the arrest and charging of Backpage officials, including the CEO, founders, and owners, with the full unsealed 61 page indictment with 93 counts charged against them, including human trafficking and the sex trafficking of minors. We highlighted the top officials of Backpage being large donors of the Democratic party, Democratic politicians and Hillary Clinton, and the long history of states trying to shut down what a Senate report indicated was a company involved in 73 percent of reported human trafficking complaints, including trafficking of minors. Three days after the 61 page indictment was unsealed the Department of Justice announced that Backpage's co-founder and CEO, along with multiple other corporate entities had entered guilty pleas. Backpage.com, as an entity, was one of those guilty pleas, admitting to human trafficking in Texas, announced by the Texas AG, Ken Paxton. Backpage’s co-founder and CEO, who pleaded guilty to conspiracy to facilitate prostitution using a facility in interstate or foreign commerce and to engage in money laundering, is Carl Ferrer, 57, of Frisco, Texas. Ferrer entered into a plea deal in which he will testify against others alleged co-conspirators, such as the founders Michael Lacy and James Larkin. Robert Mueller's failures were many in relation to Backpage and their sex trafficking, which continued throughout Mueller's tenure as FBI Director from 2001 through 2013. During his tenure, since 2010, multiple state law enforcement agencies unsuccessfully attempted to shut Backpage down or even just get their adult services section where women and children were being trafficked, shut down, and legislative initiatives were proposed with the same goal. MUELLER 'HONORED' BACKPAGE CEO THAT JUST ENTERED GUILTY PLEA FOR HUMAN TRAFFICKING? Mueller did nothing..... well, not exactly nothing. According to multiple reports, Mueller did "recognize" Carl Ferrer in 2011, amidst the ongoing legal actions being taken against Ferrer and Backpage for sex trafficking, including the trafficking of minors, for his "outstanding cooperation and assistance in connection with an investigation of great importance....." Via WND: Multiple online reports, including by the GOP Briefing Room and True Pundit, documented Mueller’s honoring of Ferrer in 2011. The image of the award from the FBI, signed by Mueller, states the bureau is “proud to recognize Carl Ferrer, Vice President, Backpage.com for your outstanding cooperation and assistance in connection with an investigation of great importance. The FBI’s ability to carry out its investigative responsibilities to the American people has been greatly enhanced through your help, and you can be very proud of your valuable contributions to the success achieved.” FBI sources said the honor might even have included a cash reward. Quick Recap: Backpage continued to run unfettered during Mueller's tenure as FBI Director. Mueller allegedly recognized the CEO of Backpage in 2011, while multiple states were attempting to shut down their sex trafficking business, which included the trafficking of minors. Backpage continued to be allowed to traffic human victims during former FBI Director James Comey's tenure as well. Note- I use the term allegedly because while multiple sites are reporting the image above, we have not been able to independently verify where the original image was obtained. A month after Donald Trump took office he vowed to eradicate the "epidemic" of human trafficking. The April 9, 2018 DOJ announcement of the arrests, charges and unsealed indictment, included the presence of the newly appointed FBI Director Christopher Wray, showing FBI cooperation and resources were needed to successfully shut this organization down. “This website will no longer serve as a platform for human traffickers to thrive, and those who were complicit in its use to exploit human beings for monetary gain will be held accountable for their heinous actions,” said FBI Director Wray. “Whether on the street or on the Internet, sex trafficking will not be tolerated. Together with our law enforcement partners, the FBI will continue to vigorously combat this activity and protect those who are victimized.” Victims, according to the 61 page indictment, included but are not limited to: A 15 years old child victim was forced to do in-calls at hotels; A young teenager victim was told to “perform sexual acts at gun point and choked” until she had seizures, before being gang-raped; A victim was advertised under the pseudonym “Nadia” was stabbed to death; A victim was murdered in 2015 before being set aflame to burn her corpse. How many of those victims, and the hundreds of others not specified in the indictment, could have been saved their fate had Mueller, then Comey, or the Obama administration, simply done their jobs Related: Other Mueller Failures Flashback - Comey, Mueller bungled big anthrax case together Dershowitz: Robert Mueller Is ‘a Zealot’ (Remember Whitey Bulger) LA Times: Robert Mueller's record shows surprising flaws NeverTrumps Protect Mob Boss Robert Mueller Robert Mueller, Andrew Weissmann, the FBI and the Mob BOTTOM LINE Perhaps this sounds harsh, but as far as I am concerned, Mueller, and then Comey's failure to act, along with Barack Obama's failure to put the full force of federal agencies behind the hard work of multiple officials, in a variety of states, to end Backpage's human trafficking once states revealed the scope of their crimes, resulted in the violations, sexual abuses, and deaths, of the combined 17 victims directly specified in the 93-count indictment. The legal cases and proposed legislation to shut down Backpage began in 2010, during Obama's presidency, and continued right up until the beginning of 2017. Once the full powers of the federal government were unleashed it took only one year to shut down the website, indict seven individuals and obtain guilty pleas. The bottom line here is Robert Mueller has a history of failures, misconduct, failure to provide exculpatory evidence as required by law, and ethically questionable tactics, but his failure in the case of Backpage, is perhaps one of worst failures of all.... because women were sold, children were abused and murdered, because of his failure to do his duty to protect them. So, please, Democrats, liberals, RINOs and NeverTrumpers, save your praise of Mueller as some paragon of virtue, he is not. Hannity: Robert Mueller has officially gone rogue

The Russians Are Being Instructed To Prepare For Armageddon

April 16, 2018 danama

Evidently, the Russians are being instructed to prepare for Armageddon.

Russia’s State TV is broadcasting instructions for survival in a bomb shelter. Will you ever hear or see this on American mainstream news? No. Never. However I found it surreal to watch/listen to what the Russians are telling their citizens today (actually yesterday). Yes this is really happening. (Read on for transcript translation) First, The situation in Syria may soon turn into lots more that just a situation. Trump has promised missiles. Putin has promised to strike back. The MIC Deep State may have false flagged the trigger – in want of this war. Ships, subs, and aircraft are being positioned by all sides. I have a gut feeling that Russia won’t back down if Syria is fired upon. So if US missiles launch on Syria, and Russia strikes back, this would be very, very bad indeed for all. Quick escalation likely. There’s lots going on behind the scenes at this very moment. Let’s prepare as though the worst might happen. Are you doing anything different about it right now? Or do you feel that this is just more bluffing and posturing? A big concern is how quickly it could ramp up. It could be dizzying. There probably won’t be much time ‘after’ to finalize your preps, depending on what actually happens. Do I think that this is going to turn into a shooting war (or worse) with Russia? This time I’m really not sure. Trump appears to have been swallowed up by the military industrial complex / deep state. It has seemed evident since he signed the budget. And this indicates (if true) that he may indeed fire those missiles. A lot of preppers have this idea that when a disaster strikes, they’ll just bug out to a rural area. They think they’ll be safe in an area with so few people. But the thing is, unless you’re deep in a national park, you’re going to end up on someone’s property, and eventually a local will spot you and want to know what the hell you’re doing there. WATCH THIS VIDEO that reveals 3 of the most important skills to overcome any disaster. Here’s the transcript / translation form the Russia TV broadcast (video link below). So, what should one bring to a shelter? The basic kit for Judgement Day includes many items. But the main rule to follow when packing a survival kit is ‘fewer sweets’, ‘more water’. By the way, not all food is worth bringing along. For instance, the most lasting grain is rice, which can be stored for up to 8 years. Oats can be stored for 3 years, but buckwheat can’t be stored for more than a year. You can live off of canned meats for a rather long time, they can be stored for up to 5 years. Canned fish can be stored for up to 2 years. Also it would be hard to go on without milk, even if it’s the dry kind, as well as sugar and salt. Russian tradition suggests to stock up on pasta in case of any disasters. However professional survivalists don’t advise stocking your bomb shelter with this product. Pasta must be stored in sealed containers, otherwise, it grows damp and goes bad quickly. Those with a sweet tooth won’t have a sweet life in the underground world. All chocolates, candies, and condensed milk will have to be left behind. Sure, glucose is an unrivaled energy source, but sweets will make you thirsty. And water will be the most valuable resource for bomb shelter residents. Load up on water. You can go 2 – 3 weeks without food, but only 2 – 3 days without water. You even need water to digest your food, so you must think about water first. Here are the norms for water consumption for the population. An adult male needs no less than 2.5 quarts of water per day. Children and nursing mothers need twice as much. About 3.5 quarts of water per person per day is used for cooking. 21 quarts are required for hygiene and cleaning purposes. Water consumption greatly depends on the microclimate of one’s living accommodations. If the ventilation system is weak, and the air in the bomb shelter gets hot, it’ll quickly affect the water supply. If the temperature rises to 85 F, water consumption increases 2-3x. If the room is extremely hot, at 98 F you’ll need four times as much water. I’ll add that, obviously, you’ll need more than just food in the shleter. Experts, or people who believe they are such, recommend loading up on medical supplies, especially those containing iodine. They help the body cope with radiation. Luminescent and chemical light sources may come in handy underground, as well as large sealed containers for waste storage. You might also want to grab a few liters of chlorine to disinfect your new home. What do you think about all this? Will the US back down? Will Trump launch missiles? If he does, will Russia shoot them down? Or will Russia sink the ship that fired them? Will it be tit for tat? Or will it become more than that? Or nothing at all… Do You Feel Something Is Wrong With Our Society? Then You Need To Read This …“ The devil’s finest trick was to persuade you that he doesn’t exist.

Syria War Meant To Demonize America, Create Pretext For Global Government

By Daniel Taylor Old-Thinker News | April 16, 2018

Debates surrounding the recent strikes on Syria have mostly centered on President Trump and his reasoning for military action. There is another, and I believe more pressing reason, that the establishment is pounding the drums of war in America. China’s recent statement regarding the Syria strikes gives us a clue to a wider agenda at play. As reported by Zero hedge, China’s Global Times wrote that the United States actions are a danger to world peace, and that “The US has a record of launching wars on deceptive grounds…” The Obama administration’s treasonous alliance with radical Islam in the middle east angered individuals with conscience in America’s military, who refused to be “Alqaeda’s air force”. Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria; The list goes on. From the opening salvo in the war on terror after 9/11 to the current crisis in Syria, the deep state’s wars – based on flimsy or non-existent evidence – are increasingly angering the globe. America’s name is being dragged through the mud deliberately. Wars are being deliberately launched on false pretexts. The deep state elites, who have no allegiance to any nation, along with communist China, will hold up America as the boogeyman that a world government system will reign in. At this point in time, China could be at the helm of this future world government. This is, I believe, is the ultimate end game of the current geopolitical chaos. America is being used to provoke war to the point that the people of the world will beg for world government to stop the bloodshed. Beware, however. The government that comes in the name of peace in the aftermath will be more tyrannical and ruthless than anything the world has seen.

Senior IDF official confirms Israel attacked ‘live Iranian targets’ in Syria

A senior IDF official has confirmed that Israel attacked the T-4 airbase in Syria, New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman wrote in a piece published Sunday. “It was the first time we attacked live Iranian targets,” the source told Friedman.

Apr 16, 2018, 3:30PM Becca Noy

For the first time, Israel directly attacked Iranian forces in Syria when it struck the T4 airbase near Homs last week, a senior IDF official told New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman. In a piece published on Sunday, Friedman said that the global reaction to the Israeli attack was largely absent due to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons in Douma two days earlier. “It was the first time we attacked live Iranian targets — both facilities and people,” the senior military source told Friedman. In the attack, seven Iranians were killed. The source also commented on the downing of an Iranian drone in February. “This is the first time we saw Iran do something against Israel — not by proxy,” he told Friedman. “This opened a new period.” The IDF recently revealed that the drone was carrying explosives and sent to carry out an attack in Israel. The military stressed that the drone was detected by Israel’s aerial defense system when it took off from the T-4 airbase and was being tracked by the Israeli Air Force. The drone was downed after it crossed into Israeli airspace. In response, the IAF fighter jets targeted Iranian sites in Syria. Syrian air defense forces targeted an Israeli F-16 fighter jet that was involved in the attack with over 25 anti-aircraft missiles. The pilots of the aircraft ejected from it before the Syrian missiles hit, landing near Mitzpe Adi. One of the pilots was critically injured.

Royal Navy's $1.3bn submarine was locked in a deadly game of 'hide and seek' with Russian hunter-killer ships for DAYS before air strikes on Syria

Russian Kilo-class submarines chased British Astute-class vessels backed up by two frigates and an aircraft

They hunted the UK vessel as it carried Tomahawk missiles with a range of up to 1,000 miles close to Syria

Britain joined the U.S. and France in airstrikes against the Assad regime and its chemical weapons facilities

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned of 'consequences' and said said there was no evidence of the attack

President Donald Trump has vowed to carry out further strikes if Assad crosses the chemical 'red line' again

Assad met Russian politicians today and told them the West was spreading 'lies and misinformation' at the UN

Theresa May has faced criticism for authorising the military action without a vote in the House of Commons

Boris Johnson defended the PM but said the UK would take 'precautions' amid fears of Russian cyber-attacks

Labour's Jeremy Corbyn questioned their legality and demanded a 'war powers' law to give Parliament a say

By Jessica Finn and Jennifer Smith For Dailymail.com and James Tapsfield, Political Editor For Mailonline and Tim Stickings For Mailonline Published: 08:23 EDT, 15 April 2018 | Updated: 03:36 EDT, 16 April 2018

A Royal Navy submarine was hunted by Russian warships in a 'cat and mouse' pursuit under the eastern Mediterranean shortly before the UK took part in airstrikes against the Assad regime in Syria, it has emerged. Russian hunter-killer submarines, nicknamed 'Black Hole' because of their stealth, chased the British Astute-class submarines over several days, supported by two frigates and an anti-submarine aircraft, according to a military source. UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said today that the UK would have to take 'precautions' against Russian cyber-attacks, after Russian President Vladimir Putin warned of 'consequences' following the airstrikes by the UK, US and France in which suspected chemical weapons sites in Syria were reduced to rubble. The Russian Kilo-class submarines tracked the British crew as the UK vessel, carrying Tomahawk missiles with a range of up to 1,000 miles, moved within firing distance of Syria, The Sunday Times reports. No missiles were in fact fired from British submarines during the strikes, although though the British boat would have been carrying up to 20 Tomahawk cruise missiles. The US Navy was also flying patrol aircraft over the area to track Russian boats and protect its allied submarines, it is reported. Britain's nuclear-powered Astute submarines cost around £1.2billion each and have been commissioned since 2010, while the Russian Kilo-class submarines are powered by diesel generators and can reach a top speed of 20 knots. Nick Childs of the International Institute for Strategic Studies said submarine commanders were trained not to fire too many missiles at once as they would give away their position. It comes after new satellite imagery revealed extensive damage to targets hit by the airstrikes in Syria, where three sites were destroyed as Donald Trump, Theresa May and Emmanuel Macron responded to a chemical attack by the Assad regime which killed 75 people. Trump has vowed to carry out further airstrikes on Syria if the regime dares to use chemical weapons again, while UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson defended Britain's decision to stand up to 'barbarism' amid criticism of Mrs May for acting without a vote in the House of Commons. America's UN ambassador Nikki Haley said today the U.S. will be imposing more economic sanctions on Russia for its support of Assad, saying they will affect companies that are 'dealing with equipment related to Assad and any chemical weapons use'. Assad continues to deny using chemical weapons, telling visiting Russian politicians today that Western air strikes against his country were accompanied by a campaign of 'lies' and misinformation at the UN. Putin told Iranian President Hassan Rouhani today that more airstrikes would be in violation of the United Nations Charter and 'would inevitably provoke chaos in international relations', according to the Kremlin. Images taken on Saturday show extensive missile damage to the facilities believed to be involved with Syria's chemical weapons program, with two facilities decimated in Homs and the Bazrah Research Center, a scientific research center on the outskirts of Damascus, also hit by a barrage of missiles. Warning of 'consequences', Putin described the airstrikes as 'act of aggression' that would 'worsen the humanitarian catastrophe' in Syria and have a 'destructive influence on the entire system of international relations'. Boris Johnson said failure to respond to Assad's use of illegal chemical weapons against his own people would have undermined 'civilised values'. He said 'so far, thank heavens, the Assad regime has not been so foolish to launch another chemical weapons attack,' adding that Britain and its allies 'would study what the options were' in the event of another attack. But amid fears of revenge attacks by Russia and criticism of Theresa May for acting without a Commons vote, Mr Johnson stressed there was no intention of getting more deeply involved in the Syrian civil war. Concerns have been raised that a cyber backlash could see vital services including water supplies, gas networks, banks, hospitals and air traffic control affected. Speaking on the BBC's Andrew Marr show today, Mr Johnson said: 'You have to take every possible precaution, and when you look at what Russia has done, not just in this country, in Salisbury, attacks on TV stations, on the democratic processes, on critical national infrastructure – of course we have to be very, very cautious indeed.' Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn branded the UK's air strikes 'legally questionable', forcing the Government to publish detailed legal advice justifying the bombings. Today Mr Corbyn demanded a 'war powers' law to ban the Prime Minister from taking military action without a Commons vote. The official legal advice claimed 'the UK is permitted under international law, on an exceptional basis, to take measures in order to alleviate overwhelming humanitarian suffering'. Mrs May will face MPs tomorrow. Asked if there were any circumstances in which he would back air strikes in Syria, Mr Corbyn replied: 'I can only countenance involvement in Syria if there is a UN authority behind it. 'If we could get to a process in the UN where you get to a ceasefire, you get to a political solution, you then may well get to a situation where there could be a UN force established to enforce that ceasefire. 'That surely would save a lot of lives,' he told the Andrew Marr Show. Meanwhile protests broke out today at the entrance gate of a British air base in Cyprus to denounce US-led airstrikes against the Assad regime in Syria. Around 350 demonstrators, from communist organisations in Greece and Cyprus, gathered in front of RAF Akrotiri where four Tornado warplanes took off to take part in the missile strike. Protest leader Akis Poullos said they were demanding the closure of RAF Akrotiri, with signs condemning the 'NATO killers' after the attack. Putin criticised Washington and its allies for attacking without waiting for inspectors from the international chemical weapons watchdog group to visit Douma, just outside Damascus, saying Russian military experts had found no trace of the attack. A Russian motion in the UN Security Council to condemn the airstrikes was rejected with only China and Bolivia joining Russia to vote in favour, as U.S. ambassador Nikki Haley promised the country was ready for another strike if Assad crossed the chemical weapons 'red line' in the future. Moscow's ambassador to the US, Anatoly Antonov, said: 'A pre-designed scenario is being implemented. Again, we are being threatened. We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences. All responsibility for them rests with Washington, London and Paris.' Scores of fast jets, fighters and destroyers fired more than 100 missiles at three military targets in Syria on Friday night in retaliation for President Assad's chemical weapons attack on the rebel enclave of Douma on April 7. Some 75 people, including children, are said to have died when the Syrian regime used chlorine gas and another nerve agent in Douma last Saturday. Aid workers told how chlorine could be smelled in the air and victims were found with foam in their mouth and with burning eyes. Pope Francis told the faithful in St. Peter's Square that he is `'deeply disturbed' by the international community's failure to come up with a common response to the crisis in Syria and other parts of the world. 'Despite the tools available to the international community, it is difficult to agree on a common action toward peace in Syria or other regions of the world,' the Pope told a crowd of 30,000 after his traditional Sunday blessing. The Pentagon shared details early on Saturday of the successful, coordinated missile attack on Damascus which set the Syrian regime's chemical weapons program back 'years'. At a press conference in Washington DC on Saturday morning, Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie gave a detailed break-down of the 105 missiles launched, saying: 'This is going to set the program back for years. We attacked the heart of the Syrian chemical weapons program.' He also rejected the Syrian media's claim that Assad's missile defense systems took down 71 of the missiles launched, revealing that none were compromised and that they were only fired once the coordinated attack was over. Russia also claimed missiles had been intercepted. The first and largest target in the airstrikes was the Barzah Research and Development Center which was considered to be the 'heart' of the regime's chemical weapons program. The second target was the Hinshar Chemical Weapons Storage Facility. It was destroyed by 22 weapons including Scalp and Storm Shadows and three Naval cruise missiles. The third target, the Hinshar CW Bunker, was hit by seven Scalp missiles. Three civilians were injured but there have been no confirmed fatalities. On Saturday, the General said that if any deaths are reported they may well have been the result of Assad's counter fire. 'Syria shot 40 large missiles into the air using ballistic trajectory, without guidance. When we shoot iron into the air without guidance, it's going to come down somewhere,' he said. All of the US aircraft returned safely to base after the attack. Gen. McKenzie did not say where the Lancer B-1 Bombers had flown from but other officials suggested they were deployed from an airbase in Qatar. 'We met our objective. We hit our target. It was mission accomplished,' a Pentagon spokesperson said on Saturday, repeating President Trump's tweet earlier in the day. Hours after Trump hailed the missile strike targeting the Syria's suspected chemical weapons - tweeting, 'Mission Accomplished!' - Vice President Mike Pence defended the president while building support among U.S. allies for the joint strikes with Britain and France on Saturday. 'The objective of the mission the commander in chief gave our military forces and our allies was completely accomplished - with swift professionalism,' Pence told reporters, noting there were 'no reported civilian casualties.' He also had a warning for Russia: 'Our message to Russia is, 'you're on the wrong side of history,' ' Pence also said. 'It's time for Russia to get the message President Trump delivered last night. 'You're known by the company you keep.' Russia has military forces, including air defences, in several areas of Syria to support President Assad in his long war against anti-government rebels. Confusion arose over the extent to which Washington warned Moscow in advance. The Pentagon said it gave no explicit warning. The U.S. ambassador in Moscow, John Huntsman, said in a video, 'Before we took action, the United States communicated with' Russia to 'reduce the danger of any Russian or civilian casualties.' A Pentagon spokeswoman said that to her knowledge no-one communicated with Moscow other than to use a military-to-military hotline that has routinely helped minimise the risk of U.S.-Russian collisions or confrontations in Syrian airspace. Officials said this did not include giving Russian advance notice of where or when allied airstrikes would happen. France has continued to talk regularly with Russia even as East-West tensions have grown. French President Emmanuel Macron spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday, hours before the Western missile strikes. Between the jets and warships, 76 missiles annihilated the Barzah research center. Fifty-seven of those were Tomahawk missiles and 19 were Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missiles. The Tomahawks were mostly fired from the USS Monterey, a Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser and the USS Higgins, USS Laboon and the USS John Warner submarine. France deployed its Mirage and Dassault Rafale jets and reportedly used four frigate warships. It is not clear how many aircraft were deployed. Britain is believed only to have fired missiles from its Torpedoes and Typhoon aircraft. Other ships from each nation's military were in the region, including the USS Donald Cook, but did not fire any weapons. Despite the attack, Pentagon spokesperson Dana White said the US was still committed to a peaceful and diplomatic resolution to the ongoing civil war in Syria. 'Our goal has not changed. Our goal in Syria is to defeat ISIS....but Assad's actions were beyond the pale. We do not seek conflict in Syria but we cannot allow such grievous violations of international law,' she said. 'We will not stand by passively while Assad, backed by Russia and Iran, ignores international law.' Iran condemned the Western strikes on Syria, saying no country has a right to take punitive measures against another 'beyond international procedures.' The semi-official Fars news agency quoted Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif as saying that Iran had warned about the possibility that 'terrorist groups' were behind the alleged chemical attack that triggered the strikes. It said he communicated his concerns in a phone call with Boris Johnson on Sunday. Trump vows to sanction MORE airstrikes against Syria if Assad dares to use chemical weapons again, as Nikki Haley tells UN Security Council members they have FAILED miserably to tackle his evil regime President Trump has vowed to carry out further airstrikes on Syria if the regime dares to use chemical weapons again, as Nikki Haley lashed out at Russia during a fiery meeting of the UN Security Council. Scores of fast jets, fighters and destroyers fired more than 100 missiles at three military targets in Syria on Friday night in retaliation for President Assad's chemical weapons attack on the rebel enclave of Douma on April 7. While President Trump greeted the end of the attacks with a tweet saying 'mission accomplished', Ambassador Haley promised the US was ready for another strike if Assad crossed the chemical weapons 'red line' in the future. 'The time for talk ended last night,' Haley told an emergency meeting of the Security Council called by Russia. 'We are prepared to sustain this pressure, if the Syrian regime is foolish enough to test our will. 'I spoke to President Trump this morning and he said if the Syrian regime uses this poisonous gas again, the United States is locked and loaded.' She also accused the Russians of covering up crimes committed by its ally, Assad, who she said had used chemical weapons 50 times in the past seven years of warfare. President Trump said Saturday in his first comments since the air raid: 'Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military. Could not have had a better result. Mission Accomplished!' 'So proud of our great Military which will soon be, after the spending of billions of fully approved dollars, the finest that our Country has ever had. There won't be anything, or anyone, even close!' he tweeted. The phrase recalled a similar claim associated with President George W. Bush following the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. Bush addressed sailors aboard a Navy ship in May 2003 alongside a 'Mission Accomplished' banner, just weeks before it became apparent that Iraqis had organized an insurgency that tied down U.S. forces for years. Russia proposed a motion at the Security Council to pass a resolution condemning the airstrikes, but this was rejected with only Russia, China and Bolivia voting in favour. The White House's talking points on the airstrikes emphasized the grotesqueness of the photos of children of 'dead and dying children' as a 'call to action among the world's civilized nations.' Surrogates for the administration were told to stress in media appearance that 'actors who use these abhorrent weapons will be held accountable for their actions' but make clear that strikes 'are not intended as a provocation against the Russian Federation or its forces in Syria. We do not seek armed conflict with the Russian Federation.' Nations that can but do not act to stop horrific attacks like the one in Syria 'make themselves complicit in these outrages,' the White House instructed its allies to say, and 'everyone must understand that the costs of using chemical weapons will always outweigh any military or political benefits.' The talking points that were provided to DailyMail.com by a source also revealed the United States' intent to impose new sanctions on Russia in response to Moscow's 'ongoing support for the Assad regime' which the White House says has 'enabled the regime's atrocities against the Syrian people.' Putin warns of 'consequences' for Syria airstrikes amid fears of Russian cyber attacks on British hospitals and banks as Boris defends 'standing up for civilized values' after backlash at May Russia has delivered a dark warning of 'consequences' for the Syria strikes - as Boris Johnson passionately defended Britain's decision to stand up to 'barbarism'. The Foreign Secretary said failure to response to Bashar Assad's use of illegal chemical weapons against his own people would have undermined 'civilised values'. But amid fears of revenge attacks by Russia and criticism of Theresa May for acting without a Commons vote, Mr Johnson stressed there was no intention of getting more deeply involved in the Syrian civil war. The US, UK and France hailed their missile strikes in the early hours of yesterday morning as having successfully degraded the capability of Assad to deploy chemical weapons. The military action passed off without UK casualties or any of the Russian forces on the ground being hit. But there are over a Russian cyber backlash that could see vital services in Britain including water supplies, gas networks, banks, hospitals and air traffic control affected in retaliation for the strikes. GCHQ is thought to be monitoring the web to pick up any signs of cyber aggression from the Kremlin, following the missile strikes on Syrian chemical basis in Damascus. Moscow's ambassador to the US, Anatoly Antonov, said: 'A pre-designed scenario is being implemented. Again, we are being threatened. We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences. All responsibility for them rests with Washington, London and Paris.' There are concerns that cyber attacks could see electricity cuts, while Russian hackers could also disable water supplies, as well as energy grid and financial services being crippled suddenly. Mrs May will face MPs tomorrow after defying calls for a Commons vote to be held before the military action in Syria. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn branded the UK's air strikes 'legally questionable', forcing the Government to publish detailed legal advice justifying the bombings. It claimed 'the UK is permitted under international law, on an exceptional basis, to take measures in order to alleviate overwhelming humanitarian suffering'. A poll has suggested the public also had doubts about the raids. A Survation poll for the Mail on Sunday found nearly six out of ten believe there should be no more missile strikes unless Mrs May wins the backing of MPs. Only one in five were in favour of the PM using her executive powers to launch more raids. However, she is also rated the most trusted Prime Minister to lead the nation into war since Margaret Thatcher, beating David Cameron and Tony Blair. The Syrian children whose pain sparked the allied airstrikes: Survivors of Assad's chemical attack tell how people fell to the ground vomiting, coughing and foaming at the mouth after inhaling 'spicy' gas The suffering of Syrian children who foamed at the mouth and struggled to breathe as they were caught up in a chemical attack last week has been revealed. Children as young as seven have spoken of the horror they witnessed as the Assad regime targeted Douma, Eastern Ghouta, with chemical weapons last week. The horrific attack, which left at least 70 people dead, has spurred the West into action with the US, UK and France co-ordinating airstrikes against Syria. One girl, seven-year-old Masa, had to flee with her mother Amani while people fell to the ground around them amid clouds of white gas and dust, the Sunday Times reports from Syria. Amani, 34, told the newspaper: 'The gas was spicy. Spicy in my throat like chilli. I was vomiting and coughing. 'I couldn't control my body. I was just shaking the whole time. There wasn't oxygen.' The family and their neighbours had heard bombing outside, and discovered a gas attack when two young men went to see what was happening after hearing a hissing sound, it is reported. Amani found her husband and other daughter collapsed after inhaling the chemicals, but while her family survived everyone in the neighbouring basement died, she said. The survivors have been living in a camp in northern Syria after many of their friends and neighbours died in the Assad regime's attack. Another former resident of Douma, who now lives in exile, said eight of his neighbors - two women and their six children - were found dead and were were believed to have suffocated in their underground shelter from the poisonous gas. Donald Trump cited the Syrian children's agony when he spoke from the White House to announce U.S. airstrikes. 'The evil and despicable attack left mothers and fathers, infants and children thrashing in pain and gasping for air,' he said. Footage posted by the White Helmets showed victims with yellowed skin crumpled on the floor, white foam emerging from their mouths. The White House said doctors and aid organizations on the ground in Douma reported 'the strong smell of chlorine and described symptoms consistent with exposure to sarin.' Much of the evidence comes from witness testimony, as well as video and photos shot by aid workers, victims of the attacks and unspecified additional intelligence about barrel bombs and chlorine canisters found in the aftermath. The newspaper said unrelated survivors on the ground had reported similar symptoms suggesting they had been the victims of a chemical attack. The symptoms included coughing, vomiting and foaming at the mouth, as well as a loss of feeling in their limbs which Amani said made it hard to get upstairs. Corbyn demands law BANNING PM from taking military action without MP vote as he says he would NEVER deploy UK forces without UN backing - even though Russia has a veto Jeremy Corbyn today demanded a 'war powers' law to ban the Prime Minister from taking military action without a Commons vote. The Labour leader also made clear he does not accept that the strikes on Syria by the UK, US and France were legally justified on humanitarian grounds. And Mr Corbyn insisted he would never countenance military action without a UN resolution - even though Russia has the power to veto them. The comments - which will fuel deep splits within Labour - came amid a huge political row over Theresa May's decision to join reprisals against Bashar Assad over his use of chemical weapons. Speaking on the BBC's Andrew Marr show, Mr Corbyn said: 'I think what we need in this country is something more robust like a War Powers Act so that governments do get held to account by Parliament for what they do in our name.' The Labour leader warned of an escalation in a 'proxy war' between the US and Russia. He said chlorine has been used by 'a number of parties in the conflict' in Syria as a weapon. Mr Corbyn said that if Britain wants to 'get the moral high ground around the world' it must abide by international law for taking military action. He said the humanitarian grounds used by the UK to justify strikes was 'debatable'. 'Where is the legal basis for this?' he said. Asked if there were any circumstances in which he would back air strikes in Syria, Mr Corbyn replied: 'I can only countenance involvement in Syria if there is a UN authority behind it. 'If we could get to a process in the UN where you get to a ceasefire, you get to a political solution, you then may well get to a situation where there could be a UN force established to enforce that ceasefire. That surely would save a lot of lives.' Shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry said taking military action against the Assad regime had been the 'wrong thing to do'. She told ITV's Peston On Sunday: 'We think that it should be in law that there should be a vote in Parliament before we take military action. 'NATO killers go home': Communist protest breaks out at gates of British air base in Cyprus where RAF Tornados and Typhoons were scrambled from for missile strikes on Syria Protests have broken out at the entrance gate of a British air base in Cyprus to denounce US-led airstrikes against the Assad regime in Syria. Around 350 demonstrators, from communist organisations in Greece and Cyprus, gathered in front of RAF Akrotiri where four Tornado warplanes took off to take part in the missile strike. Protest leader Akis Poullos said they were demanding the closure of RAF Akrotiri, with signs condemning the 'NATO killers' after the attack. Britain joined the U.S. and France to launch airstrikes on suspected chemical weapons sites in Syria in response to an attack on a rebel-held area last week which killed more than 75 people. Poullos said Sunday's demonstration was also a message to the Cyprus government not to lend any assistance to 'imperialist attacks' on Syria and to demand an end to the war in the country. Protesters used red paint to write 'NATO killers go home' on a nearby wall outside the base's gate. Britain retained RAF Akrotiri and another military base on Cyprus after the east Mediterranean island gained independence in 1960. The Cyprus government said it was not given any warning about Saturday's airstrikes. It also said British Prime Minister Theresa May assured Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades that there was no danger to Cyprus and that Cypriots can feel secure.

Heightening Mid-East Tensions

By Hal Lindsey

On Saturday, Syria apparently launched another chemical attack against its people — including small children … By the time you read this, the expected US military response may have already begun … Russia has warned that it will shoot down US missiles and even target the US naval vessels that fire the missilesAfter the chemical attack, came a mystery air strike against Syria — probably launched by IsraelRussia then began a war of words with Israel, finally showing their long-held but usually camouflaged disdain for the Jewish stateHamas continues to stir up violent anti-Israel protests along Israel’s Gaza border Iran says it will soon restart its nuclear program — as if it had ever actually stopped. And that’s just part of what’s gone on, in only the last few days! The first big question is whether the Trump Administration can really be sure that Syria launched the chemical attack. Russia and Syria both deny it. That’s what they would say in either case, but the timing seems suspicious. Only a few days ago, the President said that with ISIS defeated, he wanted to pull US troops out of Syria, and soon. That would seem to be in Syria’s favor. Why rock the boat now? But while tweeting on the subject, Mr. Trump made a good case that the chemical attack really was a Syrian operation. “Many dead,” he tweeted, “including women and children, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria. Area of atrocity is in lockdown and encircled by Syrian Army, making it completely inaccessible to outside world. President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad. Big price...” If the area is “in lockdown and encircled by Syrian Army… completely inaccessible to outside world,” then who else could it be? As President, Donald Trump surely knows the facts, and he has no reason to lie about it. After all, a Syrian chemical attack will delay the troop withdrawal he’s anxious for. The President answered the last major chemical attack in Syria by launching 59 cruise missiles at Syria’s Shayrat Airbase. Most observers expect a bigger response this time, but Russia’s increasingly close relationship with Syria and Iran complicates things. Alexander Zasypkin, Russia’s ambassador to Lebanon, made an ominous threat. He said, “If there is a strike by the Americans, then… the missiles will be downed and even the sources from which the missiles were fired.” It’s unlikely that Russia has the ability to shoot down US cruise missiles. It’s also unlikely that they would actually try to sink the US Navy ships launching the attacks. But even the threat shows how dangerous things have become. A world soaked in gasoline is playing with matches. President Trump has worked hard to form a better relationship with Russia. But by the time of Trump’s election, Putin’s course was already set. He committed to it when he sent the Russian military into Syria in 2015. It’s ironic that Trump’s critics have called him weak on Russia and have demanded a more hardline approach. Yesterday’s peaceniks have turned into today’s warmongers. But in this case, the President has pulled no punches. He directly blamed Putin for Assad’s action, and practically dared Russia to try and stop the US response. On Wednesday, President Trump tweeted, “Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and ‘smart!’ You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!” Assad has placed his troops on alert, evacuating bases near the border with Lebanon, and transporting personnel to Russian installations — presumably safe from a US missile strike. The “mystery air strike” took place Monday on an air base in the Homs province. At first, Syria blamed the US. But after the Pentagon issued a strong denial, they and the Russians switched the blame to Israel. Was it Israel? They didn’t confirm it, but neither did they deny it. Israeli Defense Forces play their cards close to the vest. Just last month they finally acknowledged an air strike on a Syrian nuclear reactor way back in 2007. The Syrian civil war began four years later, so we can all be glad that Israel chose to forcibly shut down the Syrian nuclear program. The strike on Monday caused the deaths of several Iranians as well as Syrians. There were no Russian deaths or injuries reported, but Russia had soldiers assigned to the base. That’s a problem for US forces as well. We don’t know for sure where Russian soldiers are embedded with Syrians. On Monday, Israeli fighter jets hit a Hamas target in Gaza. It was clearly a military target, and no one was hurt. But Russia used it as another excuse to ramp up their anti-Israel rhetoric. In January, Putin and Netanyahu met at the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center in Moscow. They seemed to hit it off. Netanyahu’s main purpose in the trip was to express concern about Iran’s stronghold in Syria, and their movement of advanced weaponry into Lebanon and Syria. The two got along well, but looking at it now, the effort seems to have been wasted. Putin knows that his alliance with Iran is one of the chief causes of unrest in the region. He’s playing a dangerous, high-stakes game. Newsweek reported on Wednesday that Russia is instructing its citizens to stock up on water and buy gas masks in anticipation of nuclear war. The world right now is teetering on many dangerous precipices. All of them fit the dramatic scenario laid out in the Bible for the end times. For Christian believers, I have two pieces of extremely good news. First, God has already shown us how these things eventually work out. We win! In the meantime, we will face difficulties. But that’s where the second piece of good news comes in. God’s promises remain in effect even when the world seems to be falling apart. Trust Him.

Trump discovers that leaving Syria tougher than he thought

AP

WASHINGTON (April 15, 2018) — In heated exchanges with his national security team in recent weeks, President Donald Trump repeatedly made clear he saw little incentive for the United States to be involved in Syria’s intractable civil war. Then he pushed the U.S. military back into the quagmire. In doing so, Trump is trying to confront a dilemma that haunted his predecessor, Barack Obama. Syria’s seven-year civil war presents few fast or easy solutions for the U.S., yet the geopolitical rivalries at play, the presence of the Islamic State group and other extremists, and the atrocities perpetrated by the Assad government make the situation impossible to ignore. Thus far, Trump and his top advisers have sent mixed messages about what Friday’s U.S., British and French strikes may mean for his administration’s future commitment in Syria. The strikes themselves were limited — 105 weapons launched against three targets. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis described the action as a “one-time shot” in retaliation for the Syrian government’s apparent use of chemical weapons in an April 7 attack that killed more than 40 people. Trump, however, cast the strikes in more sweeping terms, promising he was ready to keep the U.S. military engaged if Syrian President Bashar Assad were to use deadly gases again. “We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents,” Trump said in a televised address to the nation from the White House on Friday night. His comments were echoed Saturday by Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, who said the president told her the military was “locked and loaded” if Syria launched another chemical weapons attack. The president’s statement was a marked shift from his recent posture on Syria. Earlier this month, he privately told advisers that the U.S. was getting “nothing” out of being involved in Syria and he made clear he wanted the 2,000 American troops currently there fighting ISIS militants out by the fall. That order left many of Trump’s national security advisers on edge, concerned that pulling out even that small U.S. force would result in a power vacuum that Iran could fill. It did win him praise from political supporters who perceive Syria as a costly wasteland and see Trump as a president who promised an “America First” agenda that did not include sustained American military commitments overseas. The importance of that pledge to some Trump backers quickly became apparent, with even the relatively limited American intervention in Syria leaving them deeply frustrated. “This is not why Donald Trump got elected,” said Laura Ingraham, the Fox News host who has been supportive of the president. Ann Coulter, another conservative commentator, spent the weekend highlighting angry messages on Twitter from apparent Trump supporters, including one who wrote that while the “the direct damage was some buildings in Damascus; the collateral damage was Trump’s political support base.” If Trump was bothered by the growing criticism, he didn’t show it. He took to Twitter on Saturday morning and wrote “Mission Accomplished” — adopting a phrase that haunted President George W. Bush during the Iraq war. For some, those two words represent the short-sightedness about how quickly the U.S. can become entangled in a protracted Middle East conflict. Trump’s view of the situation on Syria has shifted repeatedly in recent years. As a private citizen in 2013, he said Obama should “stay the hell out of Syria.” Trump condemned Obama for declaring that Syria’s use of chemical weapons would cross a “red line” for the United States and he said it made Obama look weak when he didn’t follow through with a military strike after Assad used deadly gases against civilians. Less than three months after Trump took office, the U.S. assessed that Assad had again used chemical weapons to kill Syrians. Moved by the images of dead children, Trump stunned many of his own supporters by saying that the action had crossed “many, many lines” for him. He ordered a U.S. airstrike on a Syrian air base. Since then, Trump’s views on the situation in Syria have evolved. Earlier this year, he began telling advisers that as soon as the U.S. could declare victory against IS, which has taken hold in Syria amid the chaos of the civil war, he wanted American troops out. At a recent event in Ohio, Trump said of Syria: “Let other people take care of it now.” Just one week later came the attack that drew Trump back in.

Russian Superweapons

By Hal Lindsey

President Trump’s critics seem to have their wish. The Cold War is on again! Over the last few days, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a series of new superweapons. Among those weapons is what he called an “invincible,” nuclear-capable, intercontinental cruise missile that travels at 20 times the speed of sound. He said, “No defense systems will be able to withstand it.” According to Russian media, the so-called “Satan 2” can wipe out an area the size of Texas or France. Putin also showed off next-generation ICBMs, underwater drones, and nuclear depth charges. Russia recently announced development of a nuclear-armed torpedo that can take out aircraft carriers as well as coastal cities. “Efforts to contain Russia have failed, face it,” Putin said. There is good evidence that Russia is at least close to putting these new devices into production. The US must assume that the weapons are as capable as advertised. That means a new arms race, and a far more dangerous world. Donald J. Trump is not a traditional conservative. In the past, conservatives tended to take a hard line with the Russians and, before that, with the Soviet Union. Liberals, on the other hand, emphasized the need for communication and cooperation. Clearly, there are appropriate situations for each of those approaches. Before the Trump presidential campaign, you could usually guess where someone stood on Russia by looking at their other political positions. That’s still true in 2018, but the roles have been reversed. Trump and a new generation of conservatives want friendship and cooperation with Russia — the liberals seem itching for a fight. The Trump Administration, and before that, the Trump campaign, were roundly criticized for not being tough enough on Russia. During 2016, Trump told Bill O’Reilly, “If we can make a great deal for our country and get along with Russia that would be a tremendous thing. I would love to try it.” In July of that year, he said, “I would treat Vladimir Putin firmly, but there’s nothing I can think of that I’d rather do than have Russia friendly.” Later, he said, “Wouldn’t it be a great thing if we could get along with Russia?” In an October debate, Hillary Clinton called Trump, Putin’s “puppet.” In that same debate, Trump accused Clinton of playing a game of nuclear “chicken” with the Russians. So, Donald Trump, champion of conservatives, has tried to take a relatively liberal position concerning Putin and the Russians. At the same time, liberals have suddenly decided it’s time to get tough with Russia. They accuse Trump of going easy on Putin. They claim his softer approach comes from making a deal with Putin to help him get elected — the so-called Russian collusion. The problem is that their best evidence so far does not hold up. Much of the media agrees with the liberals that the President’s peaceful overtures to Russia raise a red flag. CNN ran a long article that included 80 quotes of Trump talking positively about Putin. The quotes started in 2013 when Trump, the owner of the Miss Universe pageant, held that pageant in Moscow. Most of the 2016 quotes come from the campaign trail. All politicians use a standard stump speech, and Trump’s standard speech called for America to try to work cooperatively with Russia. But CNN said, “His glowing statements on Putin have become central in stoking the suspicion that he and his campaign were somehow connected to Russian interference in the election.” So far in his dealings with Moscow, President Trump has shown no evidence of wanting to give away the store — as have some of his predecessors. If he or she does not diminish America’s strategic position, a President should be allowed to work toward a peaceful relationship with a former enemy without being called a traitor. Calling for peaceful negotiation should not be seen as evidence of illegal collusion. These Russian next-generation weapons have been in the works for years, if not decades. That means we can’t blame them on President Trump, or his critics. But it clearly hurts the US position when any overture of peace the President may extend toward Russia is presented to the US public as a sign of collusion. Russia’s new superweapons, along with those of China, are quickly changing the world’s balance of power. The Russians’ cyber campaign to disrupt US elections, along with this massive new upgrade to their weapons of mass destruction, mean that Trump will have to deal with them as enemies before he can work with them as friends. And make no mistake, they are a formidable enemy. Bible prophecy presents Russia as one of the major players on the world stage during the last days — capable of quickly unleashing awesome destructive force. Like the United States, Israel has a whole arsenal of missile defense systems — all of them apparently made obsolete by Russia’s new missiles. In fact, the Bible says that Russia’s future attack on Israel will not be stopped by human military might. They will be defeated by God Himself. The countdown to the end of the age continues.

7 inmates killed in 'mass casualty incident' at SC maximum security prison

By Dwayne Mclemore, Teddy Kulmala And Emily Bohatch dmclemore@thestate.com tkulmala@thestate.com ebohatch@thestate.com

April 16, 2018 06:18 AM Updated 24 minutes ago

Seven inmates were killed during fights that lasted more than seven hours at a South Carolina prison Sunday night and into Monday morning, according to officials. At least six emergency agencies responded to the "mass casualty incident" at Lee Correctional Institution in Lee County that resulted in the seven inmate deaths and 17 other inmates requiring medical attention, the S.C. Department of Corrections announced early Monday morning. The fight, which spanned three dorms, was likely gang related, and spawned from a disagreement over territory, contraband and cellphones, SC Department of Corrections Director Brian Stirling said. "These folks are fighting over real money and real territory while they're incarcerated," Stirling said. Though most of the autopsies have yet to be performed, it appears that many of the prisoners died from stabbing or slashing wounds from "shanks," Lee County Coroner Larry Logan said. The official cause of death will not be determined until after the autopsies. Videos that reportedly were taken by inmates inside the prison and shared to social media show the grisly scene after the riot. One video, which was shot from what looks like a catwalk on the upper level of a cellblock, shows towels or clothing items on the floor and a long trail of what appears to be smeared blood leading to a larger puddle of blood near a wall. Another video shows a bloody man lying on his side against a wall, not moving. The seven victims were identified Monday morning. Logan said coroner's offices from across the state reached out to him and offered to assist on the numerous autopsies. An inmate told The Associated Press that bodies at the prison were "literally stacked on top of each other" and that hours after the violence started, no correctional officers or medical personnel attended to the dead or dying. Lee County Fire and Rescue said in a Facebook post Monday morning that it assisted with the incident at Lee Correctional Institution. EMS crews from Florence County, Kershaw County, Lexington County and Hartsville also responded. Inmates were taken to two hospitals in Florence, one hospital in Hartsville and Palmetto Health-Tuomey in Sumter, Lee County EMS Director Tim DuBose said. A mass casualty bus from Lexington County took some to Palmetto Health Richland. The S.C. Department of Corrections said on Twitter around the same time that an incident involving "multiple inmate on inmate altercations" in three housing units at the prison began around 7:15 p.m. Sunday. Corrections officers saw the fight break out in the first dorm, called for back up and waited for response teams around the state to come to their aide, Stirling said. About 44 personnel were present at the prison, double what's normally on shift. At about 8:30 p.m., fights broke out in two more dorms, Stirling said. At 9 p.m., other teams across the state were activated and called to Lee Correctional. The S.C. Law Enforcement Department responded about 20 minutes later. As the clock approached 11:30 p.m., responders entered the first dorm to take it back from prisoners, Stirling said. An hour later, they retook the second. The third dorm wasn't recaptured until 2 a.m. The prison was secure just before 3 a.m., according to the Department of Corrections. The Department of Corrections, the S.C. Law Enforcement Department and Lee county officials worked together to help secure the facility, SLED spokesman Thom Berry said. “We are also continuing to work with Department of Corrections on the investigation into what began this incident and the subsequent fights that broke out,” Berry said. EMS personnel didn't clear the prison until about 5 a.m., DuBose said. The department said all responding officers and emergency workers are safe and accounted for. The maximum-security facility that houses about 1,600 inmates in Bishopville, about 55 miles from Columbia, is home to some of South Carolina's most violent, longest-serving offenders. In recent years, there have been several large insurrections, including one in which an inmate overpowered a guard and used his keys to free others from their cells. The seven deaths at Lee Correctional are the most in any S.C. prison in recent history, The Associated Press reported. Four inmates were killed last year by fellow prisoners at the state's Kirkland Correctional Institution in Columbia. The prison has had several violent incidents over the years. Sunday's fatal fights came three weeks after inmates briefly held an officer hostage and took control of part of a dorm at the Bishopville prison. An inmate died during a fight in the prison last July. In January 2016, five inmates were injured in a fight in one of the housing units. Five months later, one inmate was killed and another injured during an incident. Five corrections officers were injured during a December 2007 attack by three inmates in one of the dorms. In June 2012, the prison was placed on lockdown after a guard was taken hostage. Over the span of 2012 to 2013, the prison was taken over twice by inmates. Check back for updates.

Trump warns Syria, Russia to 'get ready' for US missiles

04/11/2018 7:18:36 AM Updated on 04/11/2018 8:31:42 AM Written by i24NEWS

'Smart missiles should fly toward terrorists, not legal governments' Russian FM said in response US President Donald Trump warned Russia on Wednesday to prepare itself for a US attack on its bases in Syria, after the Kremlin warned about destabilizing the already fragile situation in the region. In a provocative tweet, Trump wrote: “Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!” Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 11, 2018

Our relationship with Russia is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War. There is no reason for this. Russia needs us to help with their economy, something that would be very easy to do, and we need all nations to work together. Stop the arms race?

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 11, 2018

"Smart rockets should be aimed at terrorists, rather than the legitimate government, which has for several years been fighting international terrorism on its territory," foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a Facebook post responding to the US threat. Moscow also suggested that any US strikes could destroy alleged evidence from the chemical attack in Douma, the last rebel-held enclave in Syria, on Saturday. On Saturday more than 40 people died in Damascus suburb in an attack, which left victims wheezing, with discolored skin and foaming at the mouth. The Kremlin, only a few hours earlier, urged restraint in Syria saying that countries should avoid taking action that could further destabilize the war-torn country, as the US mulled action. "As before we would hope that all sides will avoid steps that in reality are not provoked by anything and that could destabilize the already fragile situation in the region," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists. In recent days, the threat of a US strike is seeming increasingly likely. President Donald Trump has made it clear he plans to make Assad, and his Russian and Iranian backers, “pay a big price” for the latest toxic gas atrocity of Syria's civil war. He has threatened to respond “forcefully.” But the UN Security Council failure to agree a global response to the incident, after Washington and Moscow opposed each other's rival motions to set up an international investigation into the use of chemical weapon in Syria, has stalled the possibility of a strike. However, Washington's UN ambassador Nikki Haley said that the failure to secure a Security Council vote would not hold America and its allies back. The White House has reiterated it has “a lot of options militarily” and will decide in the coming days. Syria's government has repeatedly denied accusations of using banned weapons such as chlorine or sarin throughout the country's seven-year war. Russia has said that allegations of chemical weapons were not based upon real facts and urged an impartial investigation into the incident. Douma has been heavily bombed by Syria and Russia making it extremely difficult for media to independently verify the claims. Amid the back and forth fiery rhetoric, European airspace authorities have warned aircraft carriers to be cautious when flying close to Syria over the next few days due to the prospect of military reprisals against Assad’s army. In a notice posted to Eurocontrol’s website, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) said: “Due to the possible launch of airstrikes into Syria with air-to-ground and/or cruise missiles within the next 72 hours, and the possibility of intermittent disruption of radio navigation equipment, due consideration needs to be taken.”

What Next?

By Hal Lindsey

The western media remains fixated on Washington, but outside of D.C., the world is spinning toward a series of potential catastrophes. Decisions made over the coming days will affect the future of all humanity. I could illustrate this by examining any of the world’s regions. But, for now, let’s focus on the nations in and around Syria. One of the eeriest specters of our time is the image of Russia and Iran sitting on Israel’s doorstep in Syria. The well-known prophecy in Ezekiel 38 tells of a coming battle with those two countries leading a coalition of nations against Israel. Russia arrived in Syria ostensibly to fight ISIS. Will they leave when ISIS is defeated? I doubt it. Bashar al-Assad, Syria’s President, is no longer his own man. He sold his soul to Vladimir Putin, the mad mullahs running Iran, and the Hezbollah terror group. Putin needs to maintain a foothold in the Middle East — the closer to Israel, the better. The natural gas fields found in the waters off the Israeli coast are a game-changer for Russia. With the discovery of those fields, Israel became a major player in the world’s energy picture. Israel does not yet have the infrastructure needed to sell fuel to the world at large, but their reserves are huge. Israel could break Russia’s monopoly on gas for Europe possibly making it in Russia’s interest to stir up a war in the region. What will Hezbollah do next? One of the most underreported facts of the Middle East is that Hezbollah has a larger stockpile of missiles than all NATO countries (except the U.S.) combined. And these aren’t bottle rockets. They’re sophisticated, high-quality missiles. Hezbollah has become so powerful in Lebanon, that the government works with them as partners. They sit on Israel’s northern border in both Lebanon and Syria. But their presence is not limited to the Middle East. They have been patiently building a physical and organizational infrastructure in South America — primarily by providing weapons to the drug cartels. This generates cash, but, more importantly, it gives them a land route into the United States. Because the U.S. southern border has been so porous for so long, we don’t know if they have transferred personnel or weapons into the country. But it’s hard to imagine that they haven’t. Hezbollah is probably the wealthiest terror group on earth. They have their own nefarious money-making enterprises. But they built their vast arsenal of weapons primarily with funding from Iran. Will Iran stay in Syria once ISIS has been defeated there? In the last few years, Iran has been consolidating the region’s Shiite Muslims under its control. Their support of Shiite militias in Iraq has been one of the keys to defeating ISIS there. Iran is the primary sponsor of civil war in Yemen, where they back the Shiite Houthi rebels. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is an Alawite Muslim. Alawites are a branch of Shiite Islam. And so, they support him. But they expect his loyalty in return. So far, President Trump has not been able to do anything publicly to slow down Iran’s march toward the acquisition of an arsenal of nuclear weapons. But that was a major part of his campaign for President. I think he will act, but the difficulties are innumerable. And right now, his presidency remains embroiled in a series of domestic controversies that make accomplishing anything internationally, especially difficult. Then there’s ISIS. For a while, it did something few terror groups have ever done. It amassed a large territory, and declared itself a caliphate. Now it’s losing ground. Its dreams of a new Islamic State grow dimmer by the day. But ISIS is not done. People who live in apartment buildings often complain when a neighbor sprays for cockroaches. Some of the roaches die, but others just move to neighboring apartments. That’s ISIS in 2017. They have agents and sympathizers in countries all over the world. Their hopes of a caliphate may have been put on hold, but the bloodlust that caused so many beheadings and mass murders has not subsided. They will continue to kill for the killing’s sake — and they will do it all over the world. The emphasis on dismantling ISIS caused a strengthening of other terror groups. I’m not criticizing anyone here. It was correct to make the destruction of ISIS the priority. But during this time, we’ve seen al-Qaeda dramatically strengthened — especially in Syria. Earlier this month, the United States and Russia announced a ceasefire in Syria. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the Russians now “see the situation in Syria transitioning from the defeat of ISIS… to this discussion with them as to what do we do to stabilize Syria once the war against ISIS is won.” Defeating ISIS in Syria will not end the civil war there, but it will end a major component of it. As that war winds down, there are strong indications that some of the big guns that have been protecting Assad, will now turn against Israel. Iran has long been obsessed with Israel. Their most elite special forces unit is called the “Quds Force.” A Quds unit deployed to Lebanon in 1982, assisted in the formation of Hezbollah. The name “al-Quds” means Jerusalem. That makes their goal and purpose clear. With its position on Israel’s northeast border, Syria provides Iran with a stepping stone to Jerusalem. These groups will become more dangerous to Israel as the war in Syria winds down. What will the United States do? What can it do? Where will Europe stand? Don’t make the mistake of thinking these conflicts will remain confined to the Middle East. Intercontinental ballistic missiles give rogue nations enough reach to start World War III. As world tensions mount, it’s comforting to remember that God warned us in advance about perilous times in the last days. It’s also clear from scripture, that God’s loving care, and His many promises, still apply even in times of danger. Soon, He will take us out of this world. In the meantime, He’s got your back.

For as I have said unto you and as you have noticed the weather, the weather, the weather, the troubles that are going on here, the troubles that are going on there, the preparation for war, not just North Korea but Russia and other countries that hate America, they are preparing and getting ready.  For the hour is much later than most people think, it is far later than those that are walking in the false and tell you that you have ten, twenty, thirty years, far later.  But many of them do not understand the word because the word starts in the very beginning in Genesis and as you follow the things through the Bible you get a clear picture of what it was like and what it shall return to, for I have taught you everything goes in a circle and we are headed back now toward the garden once again.  It started in the garden and ends in a sense in the garden way before the white throne judgment.  Things are coming to pass, if you check them very carefully they will all fall in perfect place and you don’t have to walk in doubt, you don’t have to walk in fear, for I have opened your understanding.  Yes, demon activity is far greater, far greater today than it has been, but if you go back to the time of Nimrod you will see the same thing right there.  You will see why I had to cause the languages to be divided and the people to be separated, because they had a mind and whatever they thought, they were purposing to do and today we are seeing the very same things. It is not something new my children, for if you read what I have written and don’t add in to it, you will have a clear picture of everything that is taking place and you will even understand exactly where you are.  For I have spoken to you about the antichrist taking on his new spirit, that should tell you something by itself, that alone is a giant key that I have given unto my church that they may wake up and walk in the fullness of the things that I have given unto them.  Remember this winter it is not over, I will keep this area safe, it will be far safer than other areas, but winter is not over.

Military Terrorism Complex

By Hal Lindsey

Not long ago in this space, I talked about one of the most underreported facts of the Middle East — that the Lebanese terror group known as Hezbollah has a larger stockpile of missiles than all NATO countries (except the U.S.) combined. The terror group is reported to have approximately 150,000 missiles in the field, ready to go. Hezbollah is the most powerful non-state military actor in the world. They have 20,000 active duty troops and another 25,000 reservists. They are known to have a vast number of deep and sophisticated tunnel and bunker complexes across southern Lebanon, and entering Israel under its northern border. Where does a terrorist group get the weapons and money to build such an immense military machine? It primarily comes from their fellow Shiite Muslims in Iran. In June, we learned that Hezbollah’s military capabilities have taken a dramatic turn. ISIS differentiated itself from other terror groups by taking territory from existing nations, and attempting to build a caliphate on it. But Hezbollah has done them one better. They are building their own industrial infrastructure capable of producing precision weapons, primarily missiles. Israeli Defense Forces Intelligence Chief, Maj.-Gen. Herzl Halevi, said, “We are seeing Hezbollah building a domestic military industry on Lebanese soil based on Iranian know-how. Hezbollah is producing weapons systems and transporting them to southern Lebanon…. Over the past year, Iran is working to establish infrastructure for the independent production of precision weapons in Lebanon and Yemen.” In 2006, Israel and Hezbollah fought a 34-day war. It ended with the Lebanese cabinet, Hezbollah’s strongman leader, and the Israeli Knesset agreeing to the terms of UN Security Council Resolution 1701. Among other things, that resolution provided for “the disarmament of all armed groups in Lebanon…. There will be no weapons or authority in Lebanon other than that of the Lebanese State.” That should have been the end of an armed Hezbollah. But instead, they have had an explosion of military capability in the intervening years. In other words, Hezbollah’s promise isn’t worth the paper it’s written on, and the UN remains a toothless tiger. The resolution also required Hezbollah to stay north of the Litani River. It runs about 18 miles north of and roughly parallel to Lebanon’s border with Israel. Most of their force remains north of the river, but they are building observation towers next to the border. You might wonder how UN peacekeepers could overlook something so obvious. Before I tell you how Hezbollah gets away with it, go ahead and swallow any liquid you may be drinking — because this could definitely provoke choking. Hezbollah is able to work along the border because they made up their own environmental organization — “Green Without Borders.” They say they plan to plant a million trees. Oh, and they just happen to want to plant those trees in South Lebanon — near the border with Israel. Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) released photographs and video showing “Green Without Borders” building large observation towers along the border. The UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) issued a statement supposedly contradicting the IDF. It says its members have “not observed any unauthorized armed persons at the locations or found any basis to report a violation of resolution 1701.” But Israel did not accuse Hezbollah of sending “armed persons” south of the Litani. They accused them of building observation towers. UNIFIL did not deny the basic accusation, nor did they explain why a group whose primary purpose is to plant trees, needs observation towers directly on the border. UNIFIL was formed in 2006, not only to keep Hezbollah north of the Litani River, but to oversee Hezbollah’s disarmament. During the intervening years, Hezbollah’s military power has grown into something far greater than that of most nations. After a failure of such proportions, how does UNIFIL have any credibility left? With ISIS, the world saw the danger, and nations have been cooperating to rein it in. But with Hezbollah, the nations of the world are turning a blind eye, despite the obvious and massive violations of UN resolutions. Only Israel seems concerned about Hezbollah. And it should be. Look at a map of the region. With Damascus and other key Syrian assets in the hands of Iran and Russia, Iran has a direct pipeline to Hezbollah in Lebanon. And with Iran’s growing oil wealth, they can give Hezbollah all the assets it needs. In the early 1980s, Iran created Hezbollah. Now, the terror group has become an extension of Iran’s power in the region. Hezbollah caused massive difficulties for Israel in 2006. At that time, they had 15,000 rockets. Now they have ten times that number. Plus, the 150,000 missiles they presently have are both more sophisticated and more destructive than the 15,000 from eleven years ago. The old ones didn’t have nearly the payload of the new ones, nor did they have the precision guidance systems of the new ones. These weapons are not defensive, but offensive in nature. Hezbollah and Iran have made their intentions clear. They mean to destroy Israel from the face of the earth. God promises to preserve Israel during and after the current regathering, but the nation will experience terrible days. With Hezbollah and so many other armies poised to strike their small nation, you can see why Israel will one day agree to a peace treaty with Antichrist. He will promise what they will crave most — peace and safety. And then he will deliver a reign of destruction. In the end, however, all God’s promises to Israel will be kept. At the end of the book, they turn to the true Messiah. They win… as do all those who put their trust in Jesus.

U.S. officials confirm Israel hit Syria after suspected Ghouta chemical attack

The strike came hours after a deadly suspected poison gas attack near Damascus.

by The Associated Press, Ken Dilanian and Courtney Kube / Apr.09.2018 / 7:15 AM ET / Updated Apr.09.2018 / 8:43 AM ET

WASHINGTON — Israel carried out airstrikes against a Syrian air base early Monday morning and informed the U.S. in advance, two U.S. officials told NBC News. The pre-dawn missile attack came hours after a deadly suspected poison gas attack on the last remaining foothold for rebels fighting the Assad regime. A war-monitoring group said the overnight airstrikes killed 14 people, according to the Associated Press. Russia's Defense Ministry said two Israeli aircraft targeted the T4 air base in Homs Province, firing eight missiles. It said Syria shot down five missiles while the other three landed in the western part of the base. Israel's foreign ministry had no comment when the AP asked about the reports. Since 2012, Israel has struck inside Syria more than 100 times, mostly targeting suspected weapons' convoys destined for the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, which has been fighting alongside Syrian government forces. Most recently, Israel hit the same T4 base in February, after it said an Iranian drone that had violated Israeli airspace took off from the base. The base, which was used as a launching pad for counter offensive attacks against Islamic State militants who were at one point stationed close by, is near the Shayrat air base, which was targeted by U.S. missiles last year in response to a chemical weapons attack. President Donald Trump on Sunday warned there would be a "big price to pay" after Saturday's suspected poison gas attack in the eastern suburbs of Damascus. At least 40 people were killed in that assault, including families found in their homes and shelters, opposition activists and local rescuers said. Trump blamed Syrian government forces for what he called a "mindless CHEMICAL attack." In a series of tweets, Trump held Russia and Iran, Syrian President Bashar Assad's chief sponsors, responsible. In his tweets Sunday, the president called Assad an "animal" and delivered a rare personal criticism of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Trump has declared his intent to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria in the coming months, despite resistance from many of his advisers. Trump was expected to meet with senior military leadership later Monday, as his new national security adviser, John Bolton, assumes his post. Bolton has previously advocated significant airstrikes against Syria. The Syrian government denied the chemical weapons allegations, calling them fabrications. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov called reports of the attack a "provocation." He said the Russian military visited the site of the suspected attack and found no traces of the chemicals. First responders entering apartments in Douma late Saturday said they found bodies collapsed on floors, some foaming at the mouth. The opposition's Syrian Civil Defense rescue organization said the victims appeared to have suffocated. More than 500 people, mostly women and children, were brought to medical centers complaining of difficulties breathing, foaming at the mouth and burning sensations in the eyes. Some had bluish skin, a sign of oxygen deprivation, according to a statement, symptoms consistent with chemical exposure. Syria's state news agency SANA said the overnight airstrike resulted in a number of casualties but provided no specific figures. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the war through a network of activists on the ground, said 14 died, including Iranians and also three Syrian officers. Rami Abdurrahman, the Observatory's chief, said the assault targeted a mobile air defense unit and some buildings inside the air base. He added that it also hit posts outside the base used by the Iranians and Iran-backed fighters. Israel fears Iran could use Syria's territory to stage attacks on it. The U.S. launched several dozen Tomahawk cruise missiles at a Syrian air base last year, after a chemical attack in the northern Syrian town of Khan Sheikhoun killed dozens of people. Syria denies ever using chemical weapons during the war and says it eliminated its chemical arsenal under a 2013 agreement brokered by the U.S. and Russia.

Asian shares meander following gains on upbeat trade talk

By ELAINE KURTENBACH AP Business Writer April 11, 2018 12:42 AM Updated 10 hours 48 minutes ago

Shares were mixed in Asia on Wednesday, trading in a narrow range after overnight gains following conciliatory comments on trade by Chinese President Xi Jinping. Xi's pledge to cut tariffs on imported cars and improve intellectual property protection was seen as a step toward easing trade tensions. KEEPING SCORE: Japan's Nikkei 225 stock index lost 0.2 percent to 21,750.92 and the Kospi in South Korea was flat at 2,450.82. Hong Kong's Hang Seng jumped 0.8 percent to 30,960.72 and the Shanghai Composite index surged 0.9 percent to 3,219.07. Australia's S&P ASX 200 dipped 0.3 percent to 5,340.70. Shares rose in Taiwan and in most Southeast Asian markets. WALL STREET: Facebook, Twitter and Snap rallied as senators questioned Mark Zuckerberg about the Cambridge Analytica privacy scandal that has engulfed the company over the last four weeks. Technology companies have stumbled as investors wondered if the government will implement tighter regulations on technology companies, and those worries eased Tuesday. Zuckerberg will testify before the House of Representatives later Wednesday. The S&P 500 index surged 1.7 percent to 2,656.87. The Dow gained 1.8 percent to 24,408. The Nasdaq composite added 2.1 percent to 7,094.30 and the Russell 2000 index of smaller-company stocks advanced 1.9 percent, to 1,543.43.

CHINA FACTOR: General Motors, which has major manufacturing operations in China, rose 3.3 percent after Chinese President Xi Jinping promised changes in some areas that the U.S. has identified as priorities. He didn't address other thorny topics including requirements for foreign companies to give technology to potential local competitors. So far the U.S. has proposed tariffs on $50 billion worth of products made in China, and China has said it could put tariffs on an equivalent amount of goods imported from the U.S. Also, President Donald Trump has directed his trade representative to look into targeting another $100 billion in Chinese goods. ENERGY: Benchmark U.S. crude shed 16 cents to $65.35 per barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. It rose 3.3 percent to $65.51 a barrel on Tuesday. Brent crude, used to price international oils, lost 23 cents to $70.76 per barrel. It had added 3.5 percent to $71.04 a barrel in London. Oil prices have yoyo'd recently as investors wonder if the trade dispute will hamper global economic growth. CURRENCIES: The dollar slipped to 107.06 yen from 107.20. The euro rose to $1.2365 from $1.2357.

Trump tweets ‘Get ready Russia, missiles will be coming nice and new and ‘smart’!’ warning Russia against threats to attack US over Syria

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks during a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday, March 5, 2018 in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, D.C. (Olivier Douliery/Abaca Press/TNS) April 11, 2018 Editorial Staff

Early Wednesday morning, President Donald Trump tweeted that Russia should get ready because missiles will be coming “nice and new and ‘smart'” and chastised Russia for partnering with a “gas killing animal,” referring to Syrian President Bashar Assad. “Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and ‘smart!’ You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it,” Trump tweeted.

Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!

6:57 AM - Apr 11, 2018

The tweet comes after Russia threatened the U.S. that it will attack the United States over a potential airstrike after Syria attacked its own citizens with chemical gas weapons that killed up to 70 people over the weekend, including women and children. Russia said reports of chemical weapons attacks were untrue and “bogus,” despite monitoring watch groups describing the horror on the ground – including children and adults foaming at the mouth. Russia has since aggressively threatened the United States if it were to fire any missiles at Syria in response to the chemical gas attacks. On Tuesday, Russia’s ambassador to Lebanon said: “U.S. missiles fired at Syria would be shot down and the launch sites targeted.” And Russian Army Gen. Valery Gerasimov also warned the U.S. Tuesday, if it were to launch airstrikes against Syria. “In the event of a threat to our military servicemen’s lives, Russia’s Armed Forces will take retaliatory measures to target both the missiles and their delivery vehicles,” Gerasimov said, state-run media TASS News Agency reported. On Monday, an airstrike, reportedly by Israel, attacked a Syrian government air base, killing an estimated 14 people, in response to Assad’s attack on his own people.

Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis said earlier this week that the U.S. won’t rule out airstrikes on Syria after the chemical attack. U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley called out Assad on the floor of the United Nations this week, too, saying that “only a monster would do this.” “The Russian regime, whose hands are also covered in the blood of Syrian children, cannot be shamed by pictures of its victims. We’ve tried that before,” she said. Horrifying footage made its way around the world this week showing Syrian children being treated, some on the verge of death, after being attacked with chemical gas weapons. President Trump said Sunday that there would be a “big price to pay” for the poison gas attack that killed dozens of Syrian civilians, and he issued a rare public rebuke to Russian President Vladimir Putin for backing Assad in the country’s civil war. Trump’s condemnation of the apparent chemical assault on the rebel-held Syrian town of Douma raised the prospect of U.S. military retaliation almost a year after he ordered a cruise missile strike on a Syrian air base after a similar poison gas attack.

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

Many dead, including women and children, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria. Area of atrocity is in lockdown and encircled by Syrian Army, making it completely inaccessible to outside world. President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad. Big price...

Eyewitness Accounts of Red Dawn Military Camps That Will Invade the US

Four years ago, I was contacted by an active DEA agent who had extensive experience with the forces that will be involved in the planned invasion of the United States that we call Red Dawn. This DEA special agent who is still on active status with the agency. His stated reason for coming forward is that he will not be a participant in the planned demise of the United States in which the DEA, as well as other federal agencies, will be complicit by their covert and overt participation. Here are some excerpts from our published communications. My DEA source was involved in drug interdiction in Peru, which is the leading cocaine producer in the world with a 325 metric tons of operation. One of his main jobs consisted of developing confidential sources (CS) into actionable intelligence information which could be used toward retarding of the blossoming drug trafficking business in Peru. The Peruvian police and military only intercept 3-5% of the gross drug traffic and that is by design. It gives the appearance that something is being done, while a drug trafficking empire is being established in this country to a degree never imagined in the past. Senior DEA officials are running interference for a massive drug organization known as the SANCHEZ-Paredes drug cartel and it is based out of Peru. However, not many Americans will have heard of this cartel. Yet, they have been around since 1976 and are more massive that any of the Mexican drug cartels in terms of the size and impact of its operations. DEA senior officials are fully complicit in these drug and gun running operations. Let’s examine the leadership of Patrick Stenkamp who formerly served as the Regional Director (aka Special-Agent-In-Charge) in Peru. Peru now serves as the regional headquarters for the DEA in the region since Bolivia kicked the DEA out. Also, Peru has taken over the title of “King on Cocaine” from Columbia. As Regional Director, Stenkamp decided what cases to pursue and which to conveniently ignore. According to my source, Stenkamp fired the last three special agents who dared to investigate the SANCHEZ-Paredes cartel. This group operates with impunity under the watchful eye of DEA leadership and if DEA special agents want to prolong and advance their careers, they better play along or they will end up like the three agents who tried to investigate the SANCHEZ-Paredes cartel, out of a job…. My previous investigation in looked into the role that Sinaloa’s played with regard to the present immigration crisis and it revealed three significant details: 1. As reported…, the Sinaloa’s have been connected to terrorist organizations since 2007 as reported in the MSM. 2. The Sinaloa’s, along with MS-13 have received paramilitary training at camps outside of San Salvador along with military grade hardware (e.g. RPG missile launchers, AK-47’s and anti-tank weapons. This is all supplied by the terror organization of Hamas and Hezbollah. 3. The Sinaloa’s and Los Zetas drug cartels are using MS-13 gang members as assassins in removing political and law enforcement obstacles in Mexico. The Border Patrol has repeatedly said that MS-13 members are being processed into the United States by the thousands by the Border Patrol who are being told to look the other way, by DHS directives, when it comes to processing MS-13 gangsters into the United States. Thee operations became the Red Dawn base camps. My previous investigations looked into the role that the Sinaloa drug cartel along with various terrorist groups, along with the importation of MS-13 to the US, played with regard to the immigration crisis of 2014 and it revealed three significant details: 1. As previously reported, the Sinaloa’s have been connected to terrorist organizations since 2007 as reported in the MSM. 2. The Sinaloa’s, along with MS-13 have received paramilitary training at camps outside of San Salvador along with military grade hardware (e.g. RPG missile launchers, AK-47’s and anti-tank weapons. This is all supplied by the terror organization of Hamas and Hezbollah and the Muslim Brotherhood. This is why Jeff Sessions was visiting El Salvador. Jeff Sessions is Deep State and he is behind the FBI raid on Trump’s Attorney (this will be released in the next 24 hours) 3. The Sinaloa’s and Los Zetas drug cartels are using MS-13 gang members as assassins in removing political and law enforcement obstacles in Mexico. The Border Patrol has repeatedly said that MS-13 members are being processed into the United States by the thousands by the Border Patrol who are being told to look the other way, by DHS directives, when it comes to processing MS-13 gangsters into the United States. This is why President Trump is so concerned. Thanks to my DEA source I was able to see how the drug running has turned into Red Dawn paramilitary camps which will be used to invade the United States in the heels of war breaking out with Russia and China. A Former ARSOF Source I have used a former ARSOF source since before the days of Benghazi. He is now confirming these terrorist base camps in El Salvador and Honduras. This source says there is a two-phase planinfiltrate the US with as many WMD-carrying sources as possible. Create a total hell-storm of terrorism with MS-13 and ISIS as the mainstay antagonists. Infiltrate the United States with as many WMD-bearing terrorists as possible. There will be a TET offensive of terrorism. They wan to get the UN to invoke the Kigali Principles and put UN troops on the ground in the US. The Kigali Principles will bring Chinese, Russian and other foreign troops to America. They will overthorw Trump, if need be. When war breaks out in the Middle East, a Latin American army, which has been training at these camps will come north and attack the US Red Dawn style. Tey will combine with UN forces andn end the United States once and for all. In the remainder portions of the article, I will highlight the following: The composition of the Red Dawn force An eyewitness account of these Red Dawn military camps and what their plans are. (FEMA camps and genocide). The Substance of the Red Dawn Strike Force In late 2014, I published an article which clearly demonstrated that most of Central and South America had been lured away from America and were clearly in the camp of the Russians and the Chinese. These forces have enetred into several strong and significant military alliances against the United States. The idea of a Red Dawn invasion force emanating from Central American is not just a theory, it is reality and it has already been organized and lies in wait. Further, these same groups are responsible for the border incursions of MS-13, ISIS and other paramilitary types that are awaiting a sign to unleash holy hell upon this country with malls, schools and public events and public transportation centers are primary domestic targets. An Eye Witness to the Red Dawn Training Camps Comes Forward For several years, I have known that Kathy Rubio has first-hand, eyewitness accounts of these terrorist/military base camps throughout El Salvador and Honduras. For years, she has been keenly aware of the coordinated role that the Sanchez Peredes drug cartel plays in coordinating the marriage between the Russians, the Chinese, the various drug cartels and Middle Eastern terror groups, Further, Kathy and members of her family have been to these camps and she has spoken to the participants. She is also aware of the Deep State elements from the United States, including the US State Department that are actively working in concert with these would-be-invasion forces. President Trump knows and this is why we troops at the border. We just do not have National Guard at the border, we have troops and special operations forces operating throughout Central America monitoring and planning interdiction strategies for this combination of Red Dawn invasion force/terrorist 5th column training base camps. It is not safe for either of us to have this information, without spreading this story far and wide. Within 24 hours of the airing of this show, I have been contacted by ARSOF and other assorted groups who also have fragments of the extensive nature of this story. For example, I have authenticated the identify of a man who said that under Obama, we used American based military contractors (eg Blackwater now called Academia) to install an underground missile battery in the jungles of Nicaragua as part of this system. When Trump began dealing with the Caravan to Madness Central American refugee march, Kathy told me to watch the northern border. And was she ever right. We are getting incursions from both Russian and Chinese from Vancouver and they are presumably pre-positioning assets. I have confirmation that I alluded to in related articles in the past week from two military personnel. In short, we are being prepared to be carved up like the proverbial Thanksgiving turkey. Kathy’s story confirms most of what I have been able to find out on my own. However, she is a direct eyewitness and this is what makes her testimony so compelling. And because we both fear that if war breaks out with China/Russia, the distraction will be used to launch the 1st phase, massive domestic terrorism, followed by a direct military invasion from out Southern underbelly. Many, who have heard this live interview with Kathy, have told me that they thought this was my most important interview in the history of my show. It certainly ranks up there. Here is the interview I recently conducted with Kathy Rubio as to these verifiable dangers.

Is a massive tremor on the way? Ring of Fire activity returns as a series of earthquakes shake California and Alaska

Near the end of January, a slew of Ring of Fire activity took place in many places

Alaska experienced an earthquake and a volcano erupted in the Philippines

At the time, the UN tweeted that the Pacific Ring of Fire was 'active'

Now, eight earthquakes have shaken the US with several close to the Ring of Fire

Three earthquakes struck in California with others in Alaska, Nebraska, Texas

By Phoebe Weston For Mailonline Published: 09:14 EDT, 10 April 2018 | Updated: 11:11 EDT, 10 April 2018

A series of earthquakes shook the US yesterday with several hitting worryingly close to the Ring of Fire, sparking fears a massive tremor could be on the way. The most powerful of this latest cluster - which also shook Alaska and California - came in Perry, Oklahoma, where a 4.3 magnitude tremor struck. This follows on from a flurry of earthquakes in California at the weekend, with experts warning residents to 'get those earthquake preparedness kits ready'. Both California and Alaska are on the much-feared Ring of Fire - the most active fault-line in the world. The latest earthquake struck in Perry on 9 April at 5:20am CST (12:20pm GMT) with tremors felt as far as 17 miles (27km) southwest. In the last 24 hours three earthquakes struck in California with others felt in Alaska, Nebraska and Texas, writes the Express. Since 6 April there have been at least 16 noticeable earthquakes in Oklahoma, according to the Geologic Survey. There were 13 quakes over the weekend but no reports of injury or serious damage. A 5.3 magnitude earthquake struck near the Channel Islands on Thursday and was the strongest in Southern California for several years. Although it did not cause any major damage, the quake did cause minor landslides and earth movement on Santa Cruz Island. 'A 5.3 could be damaging if it was right under our feet,' John Vidale, director of the Southern California Earthquake Center told the LA Times. 'It's right on the edge of being an earthquake that could be dangerous. It's a reminder that we need to be ready in the future.' The tremor occurred just before 12:30 PST (19:30 GMT) near Santa Cruz Island, 90 miles (145km) west of downtown Los Angeles. Dr Vidale predicted there was a 1-in-20 chance the quake could lead to a larger one in the coming weeks. The Los Angeles Police Department tweeted; '#Earthquake follow-up: There have been no reports of earthquake-related damage or injuries within the City of Los Angeles. 'Our region hasn't shook like that since 2014. This should serve as a steadfast reminder to act now, get those earthquake preparedness kits ready.' WHAT IS EARTH'S 'RING OF FIRE'? Earth's so-called 'Ring of Fire' is a horseshoe-shaped geological disaster zone that is a hot bed for tectonic and volcanic activity. Roughly 90 per cent of the world's earthquakes occur in the belt, which is also home to more than 450 volcanoes. The seismic region stretches along the Pacific Ocean coastlines, where the Pacific Plate grinds against other plates that form the Earth's crust. It loops from New Zealand to Chile, passing through the coasts of Asia and the Americas on the way. In total, the loop makes up a 25,000-mile (40,000-kilometre) -long zone prone to frequent earthquakes and eruptions. The region is susceptible to disasters because it is home to a vast number of 'subduction zones', areas where tectonic plates overlap. Earthquakes are triggered when these plates scrape or slide underneath one another, and when that happens at sea it can spawn tsunamis. In February another flurry of earthquakes hit the Earth's Pacific plate, renewing fears a massive tremor is on the way after four disasters jolted the region in January. Quakes have hit near Japan, Guam and Taiwan around the planet's so-called 'Ring of Fire', a horseshoe-shaped zone that is a hotbed for tectonic and volcanic activity. At the time, some suggested the frequency and proximity of the tremors are signs of a bigger earthquake to come. However, experts claimed events around the Ring of Fire are rarely linked and that in most cases adjacent disasters are a coincidence. After a series of quakes hit the Ring of Fire in January, a 6.4 quake struck Taiwan's east coast on February 6, killing 17 people and injuring at least 180. A series of tremors reaching magnitude 5.7, 5.6, 5.4 and 4.9 shook the US island territory of Guam in February. And since February 11, three earthquakes have struck Japan: A 4.8 magnitude quake 103 kilometres from Hachijo, a 4.5 magnitude quake 55 kilometres from Nemuro, and a 4.5 magnitude earthquake 103 kilometres from Tokunoshima. But scientists say such activity is normal for the Ring of Fire, adding that there is no chance of a 'domino effect' triggering a larger quake. 'The Pacific Rim is in a period of activity,' Toshiyasu Nagao, head of Tokyo-based Tokai University's Earthquake Prediction Research Centre, told Japan Times at the time. 'In terms of volcanic history, however, the current activity is still regarded as normal.' Dr Janine Krippner, a volcanologist at Concord University in Athens, West Virginia, tweeted: 'It's not referred to as the 'ring of fire' because it sits there doing nothing ... it is normal to have so much activity.' At least four natural disasters jolted the Pacific Rim in January, including a 7.9 magnitude earthquake in Kodiak, Alaska, which sparked a tsunami warning. A 6.4 quake hit Indonesia the same week, and Mount Kusatsu-Shirane in Japan erupted, killing one and injuring 15. Also in January, Mount Mayon in the Philippines sent lava 600 metres (1,970 ft) into the air, forcing 61,000 people to evacuate from nearby villages as thick smoke descended from the mountain. Some researchers, however, said that this string of events in January were not connected. 'There's not really likely to be any connection,' Professor Chris Elders, a geologist at Curtin University in Perth, Australia, told The New Daily. 'While they do indeed have the same origin - the Ring of Fire - these recent events are a coincidence. 'The region itself is a breeding ground for seismic activity.' Roughly 90 per cent of the world's earthquakes occur in the Ring of Fire - a Pacific region home to three in four of the world's active volcanoes. The ring loops from New Zealand to Chile, passing through the coasts of Asia and the Americas on the way. The region is susceptible to disasters because it is home to a vast number of 'subduction zones', areas where tectonic plates overlap. Following from January's events, a 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck Taiwan's east coast on February 6, causing a hotel to collapse and injuring at least 180 people and killing 17.

‘Catastrophic for the Catholic Church’: World media reacts to Pope Francis’ denial of hell

‘Catastrophic for the Catholic Church’: World media reacts to Pope Francis’ denial of hell

ROME, April 4, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Mainstream media was in a furor last week over the news of Pope Francis purportedly saying that “hell does not exist” and that unrepentant souls in mortal sin simply “disappear.” On the eve of the Holy Thursday, an Italian journalist published an article claiming that the pope had told him that hell does not exist. Eugenio Scalfari, 93, atheist journalist and founder of the left-wing newspaper La Repubblica, claimed on March 28 that Pope Francis had told him two days before that the souls of those who do not go to heaven are annihilated. “Souls are not punished,” Francis allegedly said. “Those who repent obtain God's forgiveness and go among the ranks of those who contemplate him, but those who do not repent and cannot be forgiven disappear. There is no hell — there is the disappearance of sinful souls." Scalfari’s article — and then the Vatican’s vague warnings not to trust it — was picked up by mainstream media worldwide. The story was highlighted in the United States by the Drudge Report, whose online headline shrieked “Pope Declares No Hell?” It linked to a March 29 article by Michael W. Chapman of CNS News, who called Francis’s alleged remarks “a denial of the 2,000-year-old teaching of the Catholic Church about the reality of Hell and the eternal existence of the soul.” Chapman cited the translation of the popular Catholic news blog “Rorate Caeli.” The New York Times led with the news that the Vatican had responded to the Repubblica piece with an assertion that Pope Francis does indeed believe in hell and that “no quotation of the article should be considered as a faithful transcription of the words of the Holy Father.” The Times observed that Scalfari does not make notes or use a tape recorder during interviews. Despite this fact, the report also observed that this interview had been Scalfari’s fifth meeting with the Argentinian pontiff. The “Daily Intelligencer” of New York Magazine said that it was “beyond ironic” that Good Friday was “marked by a murky debate over a claim that Pope Francis recently denied the existence of Hell in a discussion with an atheist friend.” “It’s hard to imagine your average Pope having any atheists friends with whom he holds genial conversations. But Francis isn’t your average Pope, and so the controversy continues to rage despite the Vatican’s efforts to pour cold water on its hellish fires.” 'Left is even corrupting the Catholic Church'​ Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said that “it was easy to see, with this pope, that the left is even corrupting the Catholic Church”, something he had not thought possible after meeting the late Cardinal O’Connor of New York. “This pope comes along, and I tell you, not just this,” Limbaugh said. “This pope is left-wing politically active on things like climate change. The whole left-wing agenda, the whole liberal agenda, this pope articulates it, and this pope is doing what he can to intermingle his own personal political beliefs with church doctrine. I never thought I would see that. I mean, I know there are leftists and liberals all over every organization, I’m not being naive, but the church is the church. What it believes is what it believes. It doesn’t change because public opinion changes, and yet it is, at least this pope seems to be doing just that.” The Wall Street Journal intimated that with his remarks, which the Vatican did not deny, Pope Francis had yet again astonished. “It was an extreme yet telling example of how Pope Francis has shaken up perceptions of Catholic doctrine,” wrote Francis X. Rocca, “drawing widespread attention from the non-Catholic world and causing turmoil within the church.” Rocca detailed Francis’s emphasis on social and economic issues, and his downplaying of sexual and medical ethics. “Part of Pope Francis’ strategy has been generally to play down the importance of formal teaching,” he wrote. The Boston Globe interviewed Catholic philosopher Peter Kreeft, who disbelieved Scalfari’s report that Francis had told him hell doesn’t exist. “I doubt he said that because it’s heresy outright,” Kreeft said and explained the significance of the doctrine of hell. “If there’s no hell, then heaven is no big deal,” he told the Globe. “If there’s no valley, the mountain isn’t very high. If it doesn’t exist, then ultimately we don’t have free will. … Scratch the doctrine of hell, and you find the possibility of free will underneath it.” 'Catastrophic for the Catholic Church​' Online newsmagazine Vox.com observed that the Vatican communications department was once again scrambling after a scandal regarding a doctored photo led its chief, Dario Vignanò, to resign. Journalist Tara Isabella Burton wrote, “If the Pope indeed said those words [attributed to him by Scalfari], the consequences would be catastrophic for the Catholic Church, which — according to its own catechism — ‘affirms the teaching of hell and its eternity,’ including eternal fire,’ although it stresses that ‘The chief punishment of hell is eternal separation from God’.” Remarking on Francis’ relationship with Scalfari, Burton said that the question of whether or not Francis denied the existence of hell was “subordinate to another question”: “Why does Francis repeatedly engage in interviews with Scalfari, only to later say Scalfari misquotes his words?” If the answer is that he’s trying to change doctrine by stealth, then Pope Francis risks appearing insincere. “By participating in a kind of bait and switch — putting forth potentially heretical ideas, then formally denying them — Francis leaves himself open to the charge of disingenuousness,” Barton wrote. Gwynne Dyer of Canada’s Hamilton Spectator asserted that “of course” Pope Francis had denied the existence of hell, and that “the reason why is obvious.” “It is very hard for a well-educated person of modern sensibilities to believe that a loving god would condemn any of the human beings he created to an eternity of physical torture and mental anguish,” Dyer wrote “That is not what loving human fathers do, even to children who disobey them, so the traditional notion of Hell is a permanent problem for many Catholic theologians.” But acknowledging that that Annihilationism is a heresy in the Catholic Church, Dyer believes that Pope Francis has found a “practical” way of communicating his true beliefs without wasting the time he wants to direct to “other, more urgent changes”: “Pope Francis is a practical man, and he chooses his battles carefully,” Dyer wrote. “Changing Catholic doctrine on Hell would be a long battle that consumed most of the energy within the Church that he would like to devote to other, more urgent changes. Yet he still cannot resist making his true views known (in a deniable way) by having these occasional conversations with Eugenio Scalfari. In the United Kingdom, the Catholic Herald demanded, “Why on earth does Pope Francis still trust Eugenio Scalfari?” Journalist Christopher Altieri called upon Francis to “disown not only the precise verbiage Scalfari reported in his piece, but the ideas foisted upon him therein—at least the ones that are manifestly heretical.” “The longer he does not,” Altieri continued, “the stronger the case becomes for believing he cannot.” Deploring all previous episodes of “Scalfarism”, Altieri acknowledged that Francis’s continued conversation with the elderly journalist may stem from the pontiff’s wish to save the atheist’s soul. But even this charitable motive suggests that the Pope’s judgement is “appalling”. “If the Pope’s solicitude for Scalfari’s soul is indeed so great, and Scalfari’s protestation of friendship sincere, then let Francis resign the office and go talk with his friend all day over vino burino and biscola,” Altieri concluded. 'Game being played​' In Italy, a Vatican insider named Antonio Socci claimed on his blog Il Straniero (“The Stranger”) that the Vatican’s half-hearted distancing of Francis from Scalfari’s article had been precipitated by a threat from a “non-Italian” Cardinal. According to Socci, this unnamed Cardinal told Francis directly that the heretical statements attributed to him were grounds for the pontiff’s dismissal. The OnePeterFive blog has a translation of this as yet unsubstantiated story. Socci speculated that Pope Francis and Scalfari are at some “game” in these interviews. There is thus a game being played by Scalfari and Bergoglio for over five years now, in which the Argentine pope consents to a sort of double Magisterial track. When he speaks to Catholics he expresses himself in a certain vague and theologically ambiguous way. He avoids explicit statements and thus little by little demolishes doctrine (the tactic of boiling frogs slowly). Meanwhile, he speaks through Scalfari to the secular world, making known his true ideas, which are so totally modern, in order to build up his “revolution” and to have popularity among non-Catholics and the media. [emphasis in original] Some journalists acknowledged that on other occasions Pope Francis has certainly warned of the danger of souls going to hell. Meanwhile, the Catechism of the Catholic Church unequivocally affirms the existence of hell and the immortality of the human soul. It states, "The teaching of the Church affirms the existence of hell and its eternity. Immediately after death the souls of those who die in a state of mortal sin descend into hell, where they suffer the punishments of hell, 'eternal fire.' The chief punishment of hell is eternal separation from God, in whom alone man can possess the life and happiness for which he was created and for which he longs (1035).” It continues, "The affirmations of Sacred Scripture and the teachings of the Church on the subject of hell are a call to the responsibility incumbent upon man to make use of his freedom in view of his eternal destiny. They are at the same time an urgent call to conversion: 'Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is easy, that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life, and those who find it are few.”' "Since we know neither the day nor the hour, we should follow the advice of the Lord and watch constantly so that, when the single course of our earthly life is completed, we may merit to enter with him into the marriage feast and be numbered among the blessed, and not, like the wicked and slothful servants, be ordered to depart into the eternal fire, into the outer darkness where 'men will weep and gnash their teeth’(1036)."

Top 7 Areas of emerging transformational Technologies That Will Be Used To Enhance Humans

BY Rohit Talwar · 03/01/2018

Common sense suggests we are entering, or possibly sleepwalking into at our peril, the age of artificial intelligence (AI). At the same time, we may be on the precipice of radical growth in human productivity enabled by bio-technological enhancements. Although AI technology has advanced to the point where work and jobs are potentially being threatened, the field of human augmentation could quite suddenly raise the bar for our so-called robot rivals. Whilst augmentation may be seen as extremely controversial on social, moral, ethical, and religious grounds, it opens up possibilities which society must be aware of and make careful choices about. Most of the emerging transformational technologies aimed at human enhancement fall under a few general categories, despite a good deal of crossover. 1. Chemical Enhancement Chemical enhancements would include pharmaceuticals which alter the brain, encompassing nootropics for focus and memory) or psychedelics for vision quests. Any transformation resulting from ingesting a food or drug would fall into this 2. Genetic Enhancement Targeting our DNA and genetics, this category of augmentations involves editing or altering the actual chromosomes and genomes before or after conception. The most commonly discussed technology for genetic enhancement today is CRISPR, a “cheap and easy” means of editing DNA in existing life forms, but genetic transformations touch also on cloning, designer babies, chimeras and ageing/disease prevention. 3. Neurological Enhancement Enhancing the brain takes several forms ranging from hardware to software. Neural implants, electronic stimulation, and brain hacking would fall under this category – implants being actual foreign objects embedded in some way to affect the nervous system. Hacking could involve tapping into the brain via “mind over matter” or altered consciousness state to awaken previously dormant mental, physical, or even metaphysical abilities. 4. Physical Enhancement Physical transformations would usually appear as hardware add-ons like exoskeletons (i.e., an “Iron Man” suit), endoskeletons with reinforced bones, chip implantations, bionic eyes, or other prosthetics. These could be bionic, cyborg, 3D/4D printed, or otherwise innovative adaptations which can either be removed (like prosthetics, clothing, or armour) or permanent (surgically attached or implanted). Genetic manipulation to achieve extreme physical beauty or strength would be included in this category. 5. Electronic Enhancement The use of electronics involves the transformation of intelligence, consciousness, or humanity into digital form. Any type of uploading or downloading of human “content” in digital data form (hard drives or to the cloud) could be considered an electronic enhancement. There may also be types of implants or tattoos that read vital signs to communicate to the Internet of things, blockchains, or digital public health data sets. Health applications of nanotechnology could fall under this category along with wearable technology, and human transformations that deal with virtual reality (VR) or augmented reality (AR). 6. Radical Life Extension Extending life often refers to “curing death” as its raison d’être. Ageing is viewed as an unnecessary evil, a mere medical problem waiting to be solved. Being able to live 125 years or more with comfort and good health seems to be the current vision for life extension proponents, who advocate for pharmaceutical, dietary, and lifestyle adaptations to achieve longer than natural life spans. 7. Cryogenic Freezing/Cryopreservation Rather than extend life, this transformative breakthrough puts life on pause, to restart later in time, decades or centuries from now. The idea behind cryogenic freezing is that in the future, medical technology will be able to reanimate a body which has been preserved in liquid nitrogen at very low temperatures. The elderly and the terminally ill are the most likely candidates for cryo, although there could be elective preservation conducted for personal reasons in the future. Of course, we have no idea whether we’ll ever have the technology to re-awaken the physical body and restore memory and consciousness. Conclusion By 2030 our shopping lists may contain several of these future transformations wrapped up in a neat package of human enhancements, from instant content upgrades to our brains, smart contact lenses and enhanced endoskeletons to implanted immunity, cosmetic gene editing, radically enhanced memory and organ regeneration. These may seem like something out of the pages of a Peter Hamilton space opera novel, but by 2030 they could be, not just reality, but commonplace.

Use Technology as a Lever Not a Crutch

April 5, 2018

Technology has allowed modern man to make life faster, easier and more productive. Technology has many benefits for man but all too often man abuses the tools he has developed and he becomes a slave to them. Take the kitchen for example. Many people do not know how to cook from scratch anymore because they rely on prepackaged frozen foods that can be ready in a matter of minutes without a lot of preparation. Some people would be lost if their coffee was not made automatically and awaited their sleepy bodies in the morning. Some people use a microwave oven exclusively to prepare meals on a daily basis. Even worse, some people rely almost exclusively on fast food for their meals and keep nothing at home to feed their families. Many young people do not know a time when they could not email, surf the web, text or call someone from anywhere at any time of day. It has become evident that many people, young and old alike would suffer from a type of withdrawal effect if their electronics were lost for even a day. Many people have replaced human contact with electronic correspondence which reduces their human relations skills and many children spend most of their free hours on the computer instead of playing outside with friends as past generations have done, Growing children have a lot of pent up energy and when they don’t release that energy through physical activity it can cause them to be hyperactive in places such as school where they are diagnosed with all kinds of “disorders” that never existed before. This has caused the present generation to be the most highly medicated people in our history. Lack of regular contact with others can deprive us of skills to deal with everyday life and work through difficult situations. Our dependence on machines and electronics have left many in want of basic necessities when disasters or power outages occur. How many times have you seen people leave home and go to a motel when the power goes out? A snow storm hits and people cannot heat their homes, watch TV or cook food. A thunderstorm knocks out power and people are desperate to find air conditioning and water. I find it incredible that most people feel so important now that they have the need to be on the phone constantly, especially while driving. I can’t help but wonder how we ever made it out of the 1950’s without cell phones. People have become slaves to the machines they made to make life easier and now cannot live without. People rely on GPS now instead of reading maps and because of that they can be a block away from their destination and not know it if their GPS goes out. The art of writhing letters has been replaced with text messages and symbols. When you realize you are one of these people what could you do to limit the effects of the loss of this technology on occasion? Spend one afternoon a week and take a walk through the neighborhood, assuming the area is safe, to get to know the neighbors. At least once a week, cook a meal from scratch and use a cooking source that won’t go out with the power. Meet a friend occasionally for a cup of coffee and chat instead of using the computer or phone. Make your kids go outside and play, without the electronic gadgets, or better yet, go outside and play with them. Have an old fashioned family picnic or a cookout at a local park. Play board games at home occasionally. Avoid using your cell phone one day a week or cut out talking while driving all together. Get a backup heat source such as wood or propane and store some water for a backup supply. Send a card or write a letter instead of sending an email. Plant a garden and can some of your own food during the summer. If you are so dependent on technology that the temporary loss of it causes problems, you are too dependent on it. Using technology to leverage your time and energy is a good thing but it should not replace the human actions we have used for centuries. In the end, the old ways still work and they can help you slow down and enjoy life more rather than speeding through it.

Fear of 'disastrous situation' in farm economy as China targets huge US soybean business America's $14 billion soybean trade with China is at risk after Beijing targets the commodity for a 25 percent tariff. Beef, cotton, corn and wheat are also among the U.S. products targeted for possible retaliatory duties. China buys roughly half of the U.S. soybean exports and is the second-largest buyer of American cotton. The latest trade spat with China follows President Trump's call for tariffs on more than 1,300 Chinese products.

Jeff Daniels | @jeffdanielsca Published 11:46 PM ET Wed, 4 April 2018 Updated 8:34 AM ET Thu, 5 April 2018 CNBC.com

Fears of an expanded trade war with China are spreading across the farm economy after Beijing announced it might slap a 25 percent tariff on American soybeans and other farm products. Affected agricultural products also include U.S. corn, beef, cotton, tobacco, sorghum and orange juice. However, China's Ministry of Commerce is targeting not only U.S. agriculture but other items such as automobiles on its wide-ranging list of more than 100 American products. The move by Beijing on Wednesday came a day after the Trump administration proposed duties on more than 1,300 imported products in China's machinery, electronics, aerospace and robotics sectors. "It's frustrating because agriculture has long been just a pawn in these trade wars," said Mark Kenney, who grows soybeans in central Iowa. "I'm concerned about it because China is a huge market for us." The U.S. exports about $14 billion worth of soybeans to China, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. China buys roughly half of the U.S. soybean exports, and roughly one in three rows of soybeans grown on the nation's farms goes to the world's second-largest economy, according to the American Soybean Association. Overall, U.S. agricultural exports to China represent almost $20 billion annually for American farmers. Potentially 'disastrous situation' "They are hitting soybeans, wheat, corn and cotton — so all the agricultural products — and this is in addition to what they announced already on pork and sorghum," said Wendong Zhang, assistant professor of economics at Iowa State University. "So essentially if this becomes a reality two months later, this will be a disastrous situation for U.S. agriculture." China's planned tariffs on U.S. agriculture come as the nation's heartland already is struggling after years of low crop prices. Some farmers are considering exiting the business. In February, the USDA predicted net farm income in 2018 would fall to lowest level in nominal terms since 2006. The lion's share of the U.S. agribusiness trade to China involves soybeans, which are grown in many Midwestern farm states where President Donald Trump received strong support during the 2016 presidential election. "The Chinese are very clever here," Keith Bliss, a trader for the brokerage firm Cuttone & Co., said on CNBC's "Closing Bell." "They knew that they were going to hit right to the heart of Trump's base of support in the Midwest." "I'm sure the White House got dozens of calls from soybean farmers this morning when they saw that news cross the tape," he added. "And it's going to get both parties to the table. And that's precisely what the Chinese wanted to accomplish that."  Lucrative market To be clear, some farmers support Trump's strategy to hold China accountable on trade issues due to national security concerns but also worry about unintended consequences and the long-term impact it might have on access to China, a lucrative market with a growing middle class that is demanding more food. At the same time, it creates a situation where global agriculture sellers such as the European Union and South America could take share away from the United States in key agricultural commodities sold to China. "Our corn farmers have worked for decades to support fair and open trade practices because we understand that trade is a two-way street," said Texas farmer Wesley Spurlock, chairman of the National Corn Growers Association. Experts point out that the White House has time to decide before the new round of tariffs on some 1,300 Chinese goods — or about $50 billion worth of products — goes into effect since there will be a 30-day comment period for business interests and other parties. Also, that will be followed by up to 180 days for the president to decide before taking the next step to formalize the duties against the Chinese. In early March, Trump unveiled a 25 percent duty on steel imports and 10 percent charge on aluminum imports, essentially targeting suppliers such as China. That ultimately led to China's Finance Ministry on Sunday to unveil retaliatory tariffs on up to 128 kinds of U.S. goods, including pork and fruit. One in 4 hogs in the U.S. is sold overseas, and the Chinese are the world's top consumers of pork. At about $1.1 billion, mainland China and Hong Kong together are the third-largest market for U.S. pork based on value. Last year, China was the second-largest volume market for the American pork industry after Mexico. "There is scope for negotiation going forward," said Dan Ikenson, director of trade policy studies at the Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank. "Maybe it's easier to negotiate if you have on the table your big guns as well. This will certainly encourage the auto industry and soy farmers and Boeing to hang out in Washington and speak to policymakers until this is resolved." Soybean futures dip Reaction to the China trade threat was swift in the futures markets with Chicago soybeans for May delivery falling as much as 5 percent during Wednesday's session to a two-month low before settling down just over 2 percent to $10.167 per bushel. Top soybean growing states include Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska, Indiana, Missouri, Ohio and the Dakotas. Other commodities targeted by China's threat Wednesday were also lower: Chicago corn for delivery in May fell more than 2 percent to $3.805 a bushel and New York cotton futures for May sank more than 3 percent to 79.55 cents per pound. "We expected a bumpy ride on the soybean side," South Dakota soybean farmer Kevin Scott told CNBC's "Power Lunch" on Wednesday. "Traders love a lot of volatility, but for farmers, it gives us a lot of heartburn." Scott said the soybean market declines earlier in the session translated into essentially a $1.7 billion decline in value for the U.S. soybean crop and for him personally a haircut potentially in the tens of thousands of dollars. Traders expect more volatility in the coming weeks — not only from soybeans but other agricultural commodities that China has targeted in the tit-for-tat trade action. They also note that China can get soybeans from Argentina and Brazil, two major growers and exporters, but still will likely need to rely on some American beans for the foreseeable future. "China can't cut out completely from their import program [for soybeans]," said Ted Seifried, chief market strategist at Zaner Group, a Chicago-based futures brokerage. "But even if they were to drop 10 percent of what we're sending to them — and favor South America as much as they can — it would still have a huge impact on our balance." Most of the soybeans shipped to China are used for soy protein to feed roughly 700 million pigs in the country or to make cooking oil. The Chinese also grow some of their own soybeans, mostly for human consumption, but that crop represents less than half the amount purchased from the U.S. The U.S. sold approximately 33 million tons of soybeans in 2017 to China, or just over one-third of the beans imported by the Asian country. By comparison, Brazil shipped more than 50 million tons of soybeans last year to China and represented nearly 55 percent of the total imports. Argentina has been struggling with a drought and is expected to have a smaller crop for export this season. China's announcement also concerns other agricultural commodities, particularly wheat, frozen beef and cotton. Other targets "It is unsettling to see American-produced beef listed as a target for retaliation," said Kent Bacus, director of international trade and market access for the National Cattlemen's Beef Association. "This is a battle between two governments, and the unfortunate casualties will be America's cattlemen and women and our consumers in China." Bacus added that the cattle association backs "trade enforcement, but endless retaliation is not a good path forward for either side." China took delivery just last year of the first shipments of American beef in 14 years. China had shut its market to American beef producers after a case of so-called mad cow disease was detected in the U.S. in late 2003. As for wheat, the industry is also worried about the impact of the escalating trade dispute. "This will definitely be a big hit to the U.S. wheat market," said Chandler Goule, CEO of the National Association of Wheat Growers. "Putting a 25 percent tariff on all U.S. wheat going into China is going to significantly reduce our availability to that market."  Cotton growers, too, expressed concern about China's threat tThe U.S. wheat industry last year sold 61 million bushels of the commodity to China, or about $450 million worth of the product. China ranks as the fourth-largest buyer of American wheat and about 7 percent of total U.S. exports of the grain.  o impose a 25 percent tariff. China is the second-largest export market for U.S. cotton. "I cannot overstate the importance of China's market to U.S. cotton farmers and the importance of U.S. cotton in meeting the needs of China's textile industry," said Ron Craft, chairman of the National Cotton Council.

The Bible Genesis & Geology

The History of the Genesis Gap Interpretation and its Basis in Bible Doctrine

"For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men." (2 Pet 3:5-7 KJV) "And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters." (Genesis 1:2 KJV) On this site's index page we stated that 2 Peter 3:5-7 is NOT a reference to Noah's flood. There are only two (2) places in the entire Bible where the Earth is flooded by water. One is at the time of Noah's flood (Genesis 7). The other is at Genesis 1:2 where it speaks about the condition of the Earth at the time just before God said, "Let there be light." Now, if 2 Peter 3:5-7 is not a cross-reference to Noah's flood, then it MUST be a cross-reference to Genesis 1:2 because there is no other Biblical alternative. And if 2 Peter 3:5-7 is a cross-reference to Genesis 1:2, then the Holy Spirit is calling your attention to something very significant that millions of Christian-Creationists are blindly overlooking. Specifically, that a glorious ancient world that God created in the distant past (Genesis 1:1), had long since been utterly destroyed; plunged into deep darkness and overflowed by a raging flood of great waters on a universal scale at the time of Genesis 1:2. The seven-days of Genesis that follow chronicle God's methodology of restoring the heavens and Earth and repopulating the world with living creatures, including modern man who is made in His image. The seven-days of Genesis was a regeneration, not the original creation. There is a time-gap between the first two verses of the Old Testament. And this is not the only time-gap in the Old Testament; there are two (2) others. There is the "gap" between the first coming of the Lord Jesus Christ and His second coming. It is commonly called the "Church Age" or the "Age of Grace." The other is the 1,000 year Millennial reign of the King of Kings, the Lord Jesus Christ, here on the Earth between His second coming and the final great Judgment Day, followed by the creation of the New Heaven and Earth in eternity. The late Clarence Larkin referred to these Old Testament gaps as "Valleys" between the peaks of prophecy. His illustration below is a schematic of his line of reasoning: All three of these Scriptural Old Testament "gaps" or "valleys" have one thing in common: They are impossible to discern without the witness of the New Testament. These are things that are spiritually discerned through the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ and all the prophesies concerning Him - the source of all true wisdom. (See Revelation 19:10 & Colossians 2:2-3). The Spirit of Prophecy certainly looks forward into the future, but it also can look backward into the past and you will be able to see this in the KJV Holy Bible. Keep in mind that what transpired in the past directly sets the course for what will happen in the future. This is why it is essential to understand why there is a gap between the first two verses of the Bible and what happened during that time. The time-gap in Genesis is obscurely declared but not detailed in the book of Genesis. It is the very first "mystery" found in the Holy Bible. Knowing that there is a time-gap between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2, and WHY there is a time-gap, will open a more perfect understanding of what the Creation narrative is actually saying. When you understand this truth, it cuts a clear path through the confusion of conflicting theories and interpretations that have occupied the ongoing Creation vs. Science debate. The essence of that debate will be discussed in a following chapter. For now, it is very important that we show you the Biblical points that tell us why 2 Peter 3:5-7 is not a reference to Noah's flood. Point #1 - Compare the phrase: "the heavens and earth, which are now" to the phrase the "heavens were of old": What does this mean? Ask yourself this question: When Noah's flood happened did it change anything in the upper heavens? That is, would a flood on the Earth's surface have any effect on the sun , moon, or stars high above? The obvious answer is NO. "And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth." (Genesis 6:13 KJV) The heavens of Noah's days were the same heavens as in Adam's day; same sun, same moon, same stars, same planet Mars. FACT: Noah's flood had no effect on the upper heavens. All of Noah's flood's effects were confined to the Earth's surface and its atmosphere. If the effects of Noah's flood were confined to the Earth's surface and atmosphere, then Noah's flood did not affect or alter anything in the upper heavens, so logic demands that this verse must be speaking about an event other than Noah's flood. And Genesis 1:2 is our only other Biblical alternative. Point #2 - Notice also in the passage that the earth is said to be "standing out" of the water and "in" the water. In our English language, these descriptive terms suggest that these particular waters were not confined to the surface of the planet. The passage describes a deluge that raged across the solar system, and beyond. Our solar system and outer space are the Second Heaven of the Bible's three heavens. Try to draw this mental picture: Think of a dark and ruined universe with water strewn throughout it like one big messy galactic spill. That is what Genesis 1:2 is speaking about. And imagine the planet Earth drifting awash in this roaring and rolling, formless mess and orbiting around a dead star. Where would such waters have come from? Well, it is an established scientific observation that aging stars create and give off lots of water. (See also: When Did the Universe Flood With Water? & Astronomers Find Largest, Most Distant Reservoir of Water) Certainly there must have been lots and lots of stars in the heavens that were "of old" and, if something had caused the entire cosmos to have gone dark and all the stars died, then there would be excessive water everywhere throughout space. If that was indeed the case, then all those extinguished stars would need to be reignited to be seen in our present heavens. Although many "Gap Theory" advocates believe that the sun, moon and stars we not affected, and were only being obscured by deep cloud cover until the fourth of the seven days, that interpretation does not hold up under closer scrutiny of the Scriptures. Let's review: "And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters." (Genesis 1:2 KJV)  At Genesis 1:2 the heaven and the Earth are in darkness and great waters are upon the deep. If we interpret the deep to include everything in the physical universe, which included everything below God's heavenly realm far above (see John 8:23), then the situation becomes clear. Before any reconstruction of the heavens and Earth could begin, God had to do something with all that water scattered across space. That is why the Bible says: "And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so." (Genesis 1:7 KJV) The Bible is saying that God placed a "Sea" between the footstool of His heavenly throne and the less than pure physical universe down below. Although God says, "it was good" concerning days 1, 3, 4, 5, 6 He does not say that about the work of the second day. Prior to that, God made another division at the beginning of the seven-days: "And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day." (Genesis 1:2-5 KJV) This light could NOT be PHYSICAL LIGHT as in sunshine, because God did not make the sun, moon and stars of this present world until the fourth-day. You should take note that the translators of the King James Bible did something very important in this passage. They capitalized the words “Day” and “Night” in Genesis 1:5 to stress the importance of these word definitions. The correct interpretation of these terms is found in this New Testament passage: "Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness." (1 Thessalonians 5:5 KJV) The Bible itself provides the correct interpretation of the meaning. There were two types of darkness present at Genesis 1:2: Yes, there was literal darkness (an absense of light), but there was also spiritual darkness (the presence of evil from the ruins of the prior creation). The Scriptures tell us that both good and evil are present when God made Adam's world. "And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil." (Genesis 2:9 KJV) Why this was the case is discussed in greater detail elsewhere on this website. History of the "Gap Theory" Interpretation Thomas Chalmers This Ruin-Reconstruction interpretation of Genesis was the bread and butter Creation doctrine of the Protestant Fundamentalist Church in the early part of the 20th century. The interpretation has mainly been credited to the Scottish theologian, Thomas Chalmers, who began to preach it back in the early 19th century. Contrary to Young Earth Creationist allegations, Chalmers did not invent the Genesis Gap interpretation as a compromise of the Word of God to accommodate science and the theory of evolution. The "Gap" has always been in the Scriptures since the day Moses penned the book of Genesis. However, only after man's knowledge about Earth's natural history increased has the Spirit opened people's eyes to its existence. Keep in mind that from the days of the Apostles up through the Dark Ages, and until just a few centuries ago, a 6,000 year age for the heavens and Earth was accepted dogma in the institutions of both the Church and Academia. Up until then, the real age of the Earth was not a burning issue. However, after the Bible was published for the masses, and as the scientific evidence for an old Earth grew, so did the breech between the establishment Church and establishment science. What we have in the case of Thomas Chalmers and the post Reformation times is an example of Progressive Revelation from the Holy Scriptures. That is, when the proper time came, the Word of God once again proved itself timely and relevant to the level of scientific and Spiritual understanding of the day. That Bible is still just as timely and relevant today, and can still provide true and faithful answers to scientific discoveries that appear to challenge the fundamentals of the Christian Faith. The problem today is that people have, for the most part, abandoned faith in the infallibility of the Holy Scriptures. Objectively looking at the Fundamental Church in historical retrospect, it is observed that as the juggernaut of Evolutionary Theory became a growing mainstay in academia across the latter half of the 20th Century, the Fundamental Church increasingly retreated into a shell of denial and self-preservation. Having thrown aside their best source of Scriptural Authority and defense (the King James Bible), and with declining numbers who were scientifically literate and intellectually honest enough to deal with the geological arguments, the Fundamental Church has consequently lost the ability to effectively address the overwhelming body of evidence for an Old Earth from a true Biblical perspective. And, as a consequence, has also lost the ability to effectively minister the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to the educated masses of today when it comes to the accuracy of the book of Genesis. Rightly-Dividing the Word of God God is the Divine Author of both the Scriptures and the Earth's Geologic record. Both are from His hand. Both witness to historical and spiritual Truth. He established the principles of science (knowledge) by which we can search out the answers to things preserved within the Earth's geology. His Scriptures provide us with a definitive and infallible source of Authority and a faithful guide to verify the validity of those answers. Therefore, it is our firm belief that there cannot possibly be any real contradiction in facts between Geology and Genesis. Any such contradictions only arise within the flawed paradigms of our understanding, be they scientific or Biblical. Let's be honest, Biblical Creationism will never find fair and equal standing and acceptance with the non-believing world's accepted paradigm of origins. The truth of the Bible must be accepted by faith as the Word of God. The world has placed its "faith" in the Theory of Evolution and carnal reasoning. The supernatural intervention or acts of an invisible Divine Sovereign can neither be proved nor disproved by the scientific method. Regrettably, a large segment of Fundamental Christianity has placed its faith in an interpretation of Genesis which denies not only the historical facts contained within the Earth itself but, in some cases, the concise wording of the Holy Bible as well. A rightly-divided exegesis of the Genesis account, however, reveals the full truth when the geologic evidence is examined in the light of a truly literal Scriptural context. Without apology, we have taken a stand for the King James Authorized Version of the Bible as that Scriptural Authority in the English language. The Authorized King James Bible was first published in 1611 and the "Standard Text" we use today was revised in the year 1769. "For my thoughts [are] not your thoughts, neither [are] your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For [as] the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts." (Isaiah 55:8-9 KJV) On the page that immediately follows, we will discuss two very important Scripturally-defined terms, and the differences in conceptual meanings they convey. It is essential that students of God's Word comprehend these terms and differences in order to discern truth from traditional assumptions. These words are "Earth" and "World" and they are not same.

Trump challenges the Russian-Turkish-Iranian alliance

The US President's remarks about wanting to bring troops home from Syria may have complicated talks on how events should play out in the war-torn state

By M.K. Bhadrakumar April 5, 2018 5:45 PM (UTC+8)

Three is company. But if the trilateral dialogue format in international diplomacy seldom produces concrete results, that is because it cannot be sequestered from external influences. Besides, the three participants are bound to have specific interests and priorities. The long-awaited Turkey-Russia-Iran trilateral summit in Ankara on April 4 has been no exception. The summit didn’t end as a damp squib but its outcome has been measly. Three reasons can be attributed to this. First and foremost, the US President Donald Trump might have been responsible. The Ankara summit’s main agenda was Syria, but Trump’s “very-soon” remark in Ohio last Thursday introduced a strategic ambiguity into the Syrian situation. And he deepened the ambiguity further on the eve of the summit by stating on Tuesday at a meeting at the White House that he wanted to immediately withdraw US forces from the war-torn country, arguing that the US had already won the battle against the Islamic State. Trump said, “I want to get out — I want to bring our troops back home. It’s time. We were very successful against ISIS.” Trump literally barged into the Istanbul tent and hijacked the mind of the three presidents. What is the Syria that Erdogan, Putin and Rouhani would discuss – a Syria with open-ended US military presence or a Syria denuded of the Americans? That is now the big question. Pentagon and White House split on what to do? Even then, it is very unclear whether Trump himself is free to make up his mind. A former British ambassador to Syria Peter Ford framed the paradigm this way: “I have a feeling that there are divided counsels within the Pentagon, definitely in the White House (regarding US troop removal from Syria). Trump sincerely wants to get out since it’s what he campaigned on, but whether he’ll be allowed to by elements of the ‘deep state’ is the question.” The good thing is that there could be elements within the Pentagon who too who aren’t necessarily happy about an open-ended military presence in Syria without a clear-cut objective. The military mind cannot focus well when there are gnawing doubts. Second, the disclosure (by the Kremlin first) that Trump has invited Putin to the White House has opened a vista of new possibilities. What if a joint Russian-American peace initiative in Syria gets revived? Trump now becomes a “stakeholder” in a Syrian settlement. On the contrary, if the trilateral Russian-Turkish-Iranian dialogue on Syria (known as the Astana process) has gravitas today, it is mainly due to the Trump administration’s retrenchment from the Syrian peace process. The dalliance that the Obama administration (secretary of state John Kelly) kept going with the Kremlin (foreign minister Sergey Lavrov) has petered out and what remains today is the military-to-military “deconfliction” mechanism between the US and Russia to ensure that they don’t shoot at each other in Syria. But, if Trump and Putin breathe new life into a Russian-American joint enterprise to choreograph a Syrian settlement, the Astana process gets relegated to the backburner. Participants at the Ankara summit agreed to hold the next meeting in Astana in mid-May, but much water might flow under the bridge by then. Decision on Iran deal due by May 12 Third and finally, the fate of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) remains the “known unknown.” Trump is due to make a decision on the Iran nuclear deal by May 12. And the geopolitics of the Middle East could change dramatically, depending on what he decides to do – especially if Trump were to pull the US out of the JCPOA. The conventional wisdom is that changes at the US State Department and the National Security Council presage a more hawkish US foreign policy toward Iran. But there are weighty arguments too as to why Trump may not sound the death knell of the JCPOA and opt instead to simply give the nuclear deal a fresh lease of life, as he has done twice already. To be sure, depending on the state of play in US-Iranian relations, the geopolitics of the Middle East could change and Syria is the theatre where this could see visible impacts in the near-term. So it was notable that Iranian President Hassan Rouhani didn’t go for Trump’s jugular at the Ankara summit. Iran also refrained from pushing any fresh initiatives and seemed more or less happy with a passive role – biding its time and brooding, as it were. Given the above, what did the summit actually achieve? For a start, trilateral dialogue is always primarily a statement. What emerges from yesterday’s summit on the Bosporus is that the western influence in Syria (and the Levant) is inexorably on the wane. The summit underscored that the three countries intend to reinforce their influence in Syria. Having said that, while the summit flagged the intention of the three countries to deepen cooperation, they also have divergent goals. For instance, the Turkish priority was that Russia and Iran continued to acquiesce with its military operation. Erdogan stated at the joint press conference, “Turkey will not stop until all regions under PYD/PKK (Kurdish militia) control, including Manbij, are securedTurkey values Russia and Iran’s solidarity with its Afrin operation, we will establish grounds for peace in Afrin.” Rouhani and Russian President Vladimir Putin neither nodded agreement nor dissented. The single most important outcome of the summit where all three countries have shared interest is in their forceful affirmation of the unity and territorial integrity of Syria and their rejection of “all attempts to create new realities on the ground under the pretext of combatting terrorism.” The bottom line is that Russia, Turkey and Iran have a strong convergence of interests in the termination of the US military presence in Syria. Paradoxically, here again the Trump factor comes in. Their brittle alliance faces an existential threat if Trump somehow realizes his dream of bringing the US troops in Syria back home “where they belong.”

Preparations underway for second mass protest along Gaza security fence

Gaza and Israel’s IDF are preparing for another tense day along the security fence on Friday, as protesters amassed about 10,000 tires to be burned at the border and obscure Israeli troops’ vision. Both Israel and Palestinian groups have warned against the move, which could see both sides suffering an ecological disaster.

Apr 5, 2018, 1:45PM Avital Zippel

As Friday approaches, Gazans have amassed some 10,000 tires intended for burning during a second mass protest along the Gaza security fence. Women and children were instructed to carry mirrors and lasers to distract IDF snipers at the fence. The burnt tires are expected to create a “wall of smoke” along the border. According to Ynet News, several Palestinian groups in Gaza have expressed their objection to the move, claiming that the ecological repercussions would be negative for all sides. Meanwhile, Israel’s Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Major-General Yoav Mordechai has sent a letter to the World Health Organization (WHO) warning of the environmental impact Friday’s protests will likely bring. In his letter, Mordechai urged WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom to do everything in his power to stop an imminent ecological “catastrophe.” Violent clashes along the Israel-Gaza border began last week as the Palestinians launched a “Great March of Return” near the security fence. At least 18 Palestinians have been killed in the clashes, most of them were members of the Hamas and PIJ terrorist organizations, the IDF said.

Buses ‘of expelled diplomats’ leave US Embassy in Moscow as recriminations continue over nerve agent attack on British soil

The exodus follows a row over a nerve agent attack in the UK blamed on Russia

More than 150 diplomats have been expelled by Britain and its allies

Russia vehemently denies any responsibility and has ordered reciprocal moves

Moscow has called for urgent UN Security Council talks on the poisoning

By Alastair Tancred For Mailonline and Associated Press Published: 23:55 EDT, 4 April 2018 | Updated: 07:56 EDT, 5 April 2018

Three buses believed to be carrying expelled American diplomats have departed from the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. Before the Thursday morning departure, journalists outside the embassy compound saw people leaving the residences, placing luggage on trucks. Some carried pet-carriers. Their departure is the result of a row over the nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy and his daughter in the UK. Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found unconscious on a bench in the city of Salisbury last month. Britain alleges Russian involvement, which Moscow vehemently denies. Russia has meanwhile called for urgent UN Security Council talks on the spiraling diplomatic crisis sparked by the spy poisoning scandal. On Wednesday it convened a meeting of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) but was unable to get the required two-thirds of votes from members to approve a joint investigation into the incident. Six countries voted in favour of the Russian draft motion but 15 were against while 17 abstained, mainly countries from the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM). Moscow last week ordered 60 American diplomats to leave the country by Thursday in retaliation for the United States expelling the same number of Russians. More than 150 diplomats have been expelled by Britain and its allies, and Russia has ordered reciprocal moves. On Saturday, moving trucks pulled into the front of the US consulate in St Petersburg morning as the American flag was taken down, following the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov's announcement of its closure. The consulate's employees were given until 10pm (7pmGMT) to leave, while the residence must be vacated by the end of April, according to the Interfax news agency. It is the biggest wave of expulsions between Russia and the West in recent memory and has seen relations plunge to new post-Cold War lows. On Tuesday, The chief executive of Britain's Porton Down defense laboratory says that while its scientists have identified the nerve agent used they have not verified its 'precise source.' A spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry says Britain's failure to track down the source, shows that the accusations against Russia have been based merely on baseless suspicion.

Google employees petition CEO to drop out of Pentagon AI project

Over 3,100 signed a letter for a new company policy to never build "warfare technology."

David Lumb, @OutOnALumb 04.04.18 in Security

Over 3,100 Google employees have signed a petition opposing the company's part in a Pentagon AI program. The letter asked CEO Sundar Pichai to pull Google out of the project, which harnesses artificial intelligence to analyze video and could improve drone targeting. Further, it urged him to establish and enforce a policy that kept the company or its subsidiaries from ever building "warfare technology." That could include a lot of things, but if this partnership is a baseline, said policy would include simply providing government agencies with Google's tech. Gizmodo broke the news last month that the company would lend AI TensorFlow programming kits to the Pentagon's Project Maven, and according to sources, employees were outraged that the government would use it to improve drone operations. The Pentagon first announced Project Maven last May as a next-gen application of machine learning to churn through big data to get 'actionable' intelligence more quickly. Some of this is intended to automate administrative tasks, but Google's AI tech would improve the system's ability to parse video and could be used to better identify both targets and civilians. Despite what Google maintained was a "non-offensive" involvement with the Pentagon project, the letter to Pichai claimed that involvement would tarnish the corporation's brand. "Amid growing fears of biased and weaponized AI, Google is already struggling to keep the public's trust," the internally-circulating petition read, according to The New York Times. "The argument that other firms, like Microsoft and Amazon, are also participating doesn't make this any less risky for Google. Google's unique history, its motto Don't Be Evil, and its direct reach into the lives of billions of users set it apart." When reached for comment, Google provided the following statement: An important part of our culture is having employees who are actively engaged in the work that we do. We know that there are many open questions involved in the use of new technologies, so these conversations - with employees and outside experts - are hugely important and beneficial. Maven is a well publicized DoD project and Google is working on one part of it - specifically scoped to be for non-offensive purposes and using open-source object recognition software available to any Google Cloud customer. The models are based on unclassified data only. The technology is used to flag images for human review and is intended to save lives and save people from having to do highly tedious work. Any military use of machine learning naturally raises valid concerns. We're actively engaged across the company in a comprehensive discussion of this important topic and also with outside experts, as we continue to develop our policies around the development and use of our machine learning technologies."

Did These Prophetic Vision's Of America's Destruction Foresee Russia's Unstoppable Nuclear Weapons That Could Incinerate New York Or Texas In One Strike?

How Far Will Russia Be Pushed Before Unleashing 'Hellfire' Upon America?

By Mary Taylor - All News Pipeline April 4, 2018

When the enemy speaks, don’t read his lips. Read his body language! Take Russia, for instance. When Putin boasts of weapons with power to blast America from the face of the earth, what is he thinking--does he mean today? Or tomorrow? After all, we don’t really know the enigmatic Russian mind—who can fathom it? Steve Quayle’s site regularly cautions readers to watch a speaker’s body language to determine his or her truthfulness. Don’t just listen to the words; read the body language, the set of his mouth and the furrowed brow. Quayle has pointed out in pictures and videos cases of politicians looking down, staring and glaring, closing their eyes or biting their lips while testifying. It shows that the wary rarely look straight at their accusers--behind their eyes the real danger lies! Consider Eve, who could have profited all mankind by knowing her enemy in the Garden. She didn’t question the serpent but blindly followed his lead, but the Bible stresses the importance of looking behind the obvious and discounting the effects of flattering and lying lips. “A malicious man disguises himself with his lips, but in his heart he harbors deceit.” Proverbs 26:24 “Everyone lies to his neighbor; their flattering lips speak with deception. May the Lord cut off all flattering lips and every boastful tongue that says, ‘We will triumph with our tongues; we own our lips—who is our master?’” Psalm 12:3,4 So the development of discernment by face and body watching is advice that makes sense. Sometimes that’s the only way you can spot a socialist, a Stalinist, a Marxist or a revolutionist hiding behind a label of “Progressive.” “Russia cannot be understood with the mind alone,” the poet Tyutchev wrote. And yet when Russia is your country’s greatest enemy, it’s important to know his mind--what’s really behind all the bluster and the public saber rattling. When we look beyond the seeming impassivity of Vladimir Putin’s unexpressive stare, we wonder, is he really the tough guy—the unyielding powerhouse--that he seems. Is he irresolute, immovable in his threats and strong warnings about avoiding or inciting war? Just how far could Russia be pushed before unleashing the fiery hellfire ready to explode in Russia’s newest weapon of war: the intercontinental ballistic missile known as “Satan 2“? It may be that we won’t know until warnings given by some of America’s end-time prophets are fulfilled and missiles come soaring over the North Pole, ready to strike America’s vulnerable cities. That’s exactly what Putin inferred when he announced Satan 2’s ability to fly over the North or South Poles and strike any target in the world. In his book, “Cross+Wise: Visions of a Walker,” prayer walker Henry Gruver shared a vision about ballistic missiles. At this time, Henry was in Vancouver, British Columbia, but in the vision he shared found himself on the side of a mountain in California and seemed to be looking into the Bay area toward San Francisco. “I looked up and saw what answers to the description of an Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile, just as real as any that you would see these days,” he said. “I was overlooking a huge metropolis when I saw this missile directed toward the city. “It suddenly plummeted down into the city and then exploded. I saw the fire ball, which is identical to what I have seen in a civil defense film release of the first hydrogen bomb explosion.” Although Gruver’s vision happened more than half a century ago, he said he has been warning people ever since that this day is coming to America’s cities. He wants them to seek God’s protection from the enemy’s ballistic weapons and to be aware of their incredible powers of destruction. “The missile I saw hit right in the middle of that large metropolitan area,” he reported, “and the pressure demolished everything before it, leaving a crater over 300 feet deep and two miles across. It is capable of destroying a huge metropolis the size of New York City in one blast.” Gruver and other end-time prophets have shared visions of missile attacks on both the country’s eastern and western seaboards On the United States Prophecy site, John W. Johnston described a vision he had in 1986 where he was lifted high in the heavens and seemed to be flying “like Superman” in the skies. “I saw 10 long-range ICBMs with red Communist stars on their fusilages, each one carrying multiple warheads,” Johnston reported. “As I looked down to the ground I saw Manhattan, and I couldn’t believe these missiles were getting ready to hit New York with such magnitude. “The next thing I knew, I was down on the ground looking at all the devastation. Buildings were totally annihilated, with skyscrapers that had fallen over in a domino effect, and dead bodies lying everywhere.” Victor Ashe, a writer for Foreign Policy Magazine, warned back in 2016 that the US needs to keep a watchful eye on Putin and Russia since this country’s enemies had become emboldened over the seven years under Barack Obama. “Putin no longer feels restrained after the Obama administration allowed him to pursue his ‘near abroad’ strategy,” Ashe maintained. “His goal was to reestablish control over former Soviet states and threaten our allies.” But World News and Prophecy writer Rodney Hall has noted that after the Cold War and the fall of Berlin’s wall, many nations began to downplay Russia’s role in the contemporary world. “Looking back 20 years ago when the Soviet Union disintegrated, America was left as the only great power with unparalleled economic and military capacity,” Hall observed, “causing many Americans to think of Russia as the defeated opponent. “But Russia is stronger both economically and militarily today than most people realize,” he added. “And Bible prophecy reveals it is destined to play a major role in end-time events.” Although America isn’t mentioned in Biblical end-time prophecy, Russia’s role is made clear in the book of Ezekiel, where the prophet warns of a “future time” when the leader of Magog, or Russia, will come against the land of Israel. Russia will lead a “great horde” of nations including Persia (Iran), Ethiopia (Sudan), Gomer (Turkey) and Put (Libya). God himself has masterminded Russia’s role in the assault on Israel, promising that he will draw the great bear to its doom when all the nations surround Israel. “You will advance against my people Israel like a cloud that covers the land. In days to come, O Gog, I will bring you against my land, so the nations may know me when I show myself holy through you before their eyes”. Ezekiel 38:16 “I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army, fully armed.” Ezekiel 38: 3,4ed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing their weapons.” In an ANP article published this week on the Quayle site, author Stefan Stanford noted that other countries, recognizing the superiority of Russia’s “super-nukes”, are urgently taking steps to prepare for World War 3. Pointing out that globalists are pushing for a takedown of America, Stanford warned that war with Russia should be avoided at all costs. He quoted from Club Orlon a warning by Russians living in the U.S. that alerts the American people about the lies they are being told: “And the truth is simply this: If there is going to be a war with Russia, then the United States will most certainly be destroyed, and most of us will end up dead. “We tell you this not to be alarmist, but because, based on everything we know, we are ourselves alarmed. If attacked, Russia will not back down; she will retaliate, and she will utterly annihilate the United States.”

Trump orders troops to border in push for security

By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Wednesday, April 4, 2018

President Trump signed an order Wednesday deploying National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border to boost security while he pressures Congress to deliver more resources to build his wall, hire more Border Patrol agents and make it easier to deport new illegal immigrants. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said it’s too early to know how many troops will be sent, what their exact role will be or how much it will cost, but she suggested it would likely be along the lines of deployments by Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, who sent the National Guard to assist in intelligence-gathering, construction and surveillance. The move came just as the government announced the latest numbers showing illegal immigration leaped 200 percent in March compared with a year earlier. It is the largest increase in records dating back to 2011, and it suggests illegal immigration is quickly rising back to the heights of the Obama administration. Ms. Nielsen said National Guard troops could be on the border immediately, though exact timing would depend on when the White House could strike agreements with governors. Perhaps just as big was the White House announcement that Mr. Trump will pursue a new immigration debate on Capitol Hill. Unlike the February debate, which centered on legalizing illegal immigrants, this one will focus on stiffening enforcement by attempting to close loopholes that smugglers and illegal immigrants have seized on to “game” the system.

World War 3: Turkey's Erdogan calls for 'ARMY of Islam' to ATTACK Israel on all sides

TURKEY’S President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) have announced they want to create an “army of Islam” to wage war against Israel, it has been revealed.

By Matt Drake

Less than a month ago the Turkish state’s mouthpiece the daily Yeni Şafak ran an article for Erdogan titledA call for urgent action” and on the newspaper’s website headlined “What if an army of Islam formed against Israel?” It called for the 57 member states of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to form a joint army to simultaneously attack Israel from all sides. The article said: “If the member states of the OIC unite militarily, they will form the world’s largest and most comprehensive army. “The number of active soldiers would be at least 5,206,100, while the defence budget would reach approximately $175billion (£124billion).” This was accompanied by an interactive map providing formation of military forces for a joint Muslim attack on Israel. The article provided additional details of the plan, saying: “It is expected that 250,000 soldiers will participate in the first of a possible operation. “Land, air and naval bases of member states located in the most critical regions will be used. “Joint bases will be constructed in a short period of time… It is possible for 500 tanks and armoured vehicles, 100 planes and 500 attack helicopters and 50 ships to mobilise quickly.” Erdogan did not deny his support for the report and has on several occasions said he would like to resurrect the Ottoman Empire. The tyrant has established military bases in Qatar and Somalia and recently reached an agreement with Sudan to acquire a Sudanese island in the Red Sea to be used as a military base. He has also repeatedly threatened to invade Greek islands in the Mediterranean and has recently invaded Syria under the pretext of fighting Kurdish terrorism. Erdogan has also locked up journalists and activists who have spoken out against his regime. But the European Union is urging members to approve a further €3.7billion (£3.28billion) to help Turkey deal with Syrian refugees who arrived in their country. Brussels will now push to get Turkey the extra €2.7 billion (£2.4billion) from national governments, some of whom may be unwilling to pump new cash into the country. Europe's relations with Erdogan has been fraught in recent years but the EU depends on Turkey to keep a tight lid on immigration from the Middle East, where the war in Syria has killed hundreds of thousands and pushed millions from homes. However, a draft document seen by Politico notes that if countries do not contribute and order the money be taken from the EU budget only, “standard EU rules would apply and the member states would be excluded from the governance of the facility (for refugees in Turkey).” Top EU officials will meet Erdogan on March 26 in the Bulgarian city of Varna despite misgivings among many on the European side. The bloc's top migration official Dimitris Avramopoulos will announce on Wednesday that the European Commission proposes the extra funding on projects benefiting Syrian refugees in Turkey. Turkey has accepted 3.5 million refugees from Syria, and the EU is already spending a first €3billion (£2.1billion) instalment to help them.

Israel thwarts major Islamic Jihad missile attack against naval vessels

The Shin Bet and IDF foiled the plot, which would use one boat as a decoy and two others to attack and board an Israeli navy vessel in order to kill and capture the sailors.

By Tovah Lazaroff April 4, 2018 13:51

Security forces said on Wednesday they thwarted a potential missile attack by Islamic Jihad in Gaza against its naval forces that also included a plan to kidnap IDF soldiers. The State Attorney’s Office indicted the alleged ringleader, Amin Saadi Muhammad Jumaa, in Beersheba District Court on Wednesday. The IDF charged that this was the latest in a string of attacks by Islamic Jihad in Gaza against Israel, including the terror tunnel it had dug under the border that was discovered in October 2017. Islamic Jihad had also fired mortars from Gaza into Israel last November and December, the IDF said. The Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) published information about the alleged terrorist plot now, during the first week of what is planned to be a six-week popular Gaza protest, called the “Great March of Return.” Starting last Friday, thousands of Palestinians in the Strip gathered by the Israeli border fence, some attempting to break through it. The naval plot “proves the true intentions of the terrorist organizations in Gaza, which are trying to disguise their murderous intentions by provocative actions against the security fence. Their sole purpose is to provide a cover under which terrorists can carry out attacks against Israel,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said. Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman tweeted ironically that he hoped this time the Israeli Left would not demand an investigation into activities of the Shin Bet and the IDF in foiling the plot. He added that Israeli citizens could depend on the army to thwart the complex challenges on the Gaza border. The IDF released a video to the media that showed how on March 12, naval commandos boarded a Gaza fishing vessel from Rafah that had sailed beyond the permissible nautical distance. “Get on the floor and put your hands up,” the commandos told the 10 Palestinians, including Jumaa, before arresting them. The Shin Bet said that during his interrogation, Jumaa, who was born in Gaza in 1994, confessed to a plot by which one Gazan fishing vessel would act as a decoy, forcing an Israel Navy ship to approach it. At that moment Palestinians on board a second fishing boat would fire a Cornet shipto- ship rocket at the naval vessel. Palestinians would then board that vessel from a third ship, so they could kidnap soldiers who survived the attack. Islamic Jihad, with Jumaa’s help, had been gathering intelligence about the navy off the Gaza coast to prepare for the attack, the Shin Bet said. According to the indictment, Jumaa turned to Islamic Jihad in 2016, and in 2017 it was suggested that he become a secret member and undergo secret training. He was recruited for the naval plot in August 2017 for a fee of $5,000 after Israel blew up an Islamic Jihad attack tunnel from Gaza into Israel, killing a number of its terrorists. In 2017 and 2018 he went out on Gaza fishing boats to collect information about how the navy operated and how many sailors were on board its ships. Jumaa also took photographs with his cellphone, which he transferred to Islamic Jihad along with information on how best to carry out the attack. According to the indictment, he was able to hide his phone when the IDF boarded his fishing vessel on March 12. The prosecutor’s office charged that this was not Jumaa’s first involvement in terrorist-related activity. Six years ago he helped Hamas smuggle 300 kilograms of explosives by boat from Egypt to Gaza. Four years ago he was paid $6,000 to help smuggle 150 barrels of fiberglass through a tunnel that ran from Egypt to Gaza. Three years ago he used a tunnel to smuggle four Kalashnikov rifles and a pistol into Gaza. The state has asked the court for a life sentence for his involvement in terrorist activity and for transferring information to the enemy.

'Nightmare bacteria' are trying to spread in the U.S., CDC says

Aggressive testing at hospitals and clinics can stop superbugs

by Maggie Fox / Apr.03.2018 / 1:03 PM ET / Updated Apr.04.2018 / 8:21 PM ET

“Nightmare bacteria” with the power to resist most antibiotics are popping up across the U.S., but new, aggressive policies can help stop them from spreading, federal health officials said Tuesday. A new program for testing suspect bacteria turned up unusual antibiotic-resistance genes 221 times in 2017, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported. And 11 percent of people screened for these superbugs carried them, even though they had no symptoms, the CDC said. “CDC’s study found several dangerous pathogens, hiding in plain sight, that can cause infections that are difficult or impossible to treat,” said the CDC’s Dr. Anne Schuchat. “While they are appearing all over the place, an aggressive approach can snuff them out.” Antibiotic-resistant germs kill more than 23,000 Americans a year. They evolve quickly, developing mutations that let them evade the effects of antibiotics. If they are not stopped fast, they spread. Worse, the antibiotic-resistant DNA can be carried in little cassettes of genetic material called plasmids that bacteria can slip in their entirety to one another and to other species of bacteria. It’s already happened several times in the U.S. — and when one superbug gives new powers to a different superbug, the result can be an infection that is impossible to treat. “Once antibiotic resistance spreads, it is harder to control—like a wildfire,” the CDC said in a statement. The World Health Organization has labeled antibiotic resistance a “fundamental threat” to humanity. The CDC tried out a new system aimed at quickly identifying these superbugs. They’ve helped staff up state health departments and labs to speedily test samples so that hospitals, clinics and other facilities can rapidly isolate patients infected with them. “We were able to put 500 additional staff across the country to help with this,” Schuchat told NBC News. Carrying germs, without any symptoms The results were sobering. One in four of the samples sent in carried superbug genes, the CDC team reported. When the facilities involved looked further, they found 11 percent of seemingly unaffected people screened carried such germs without having any symptoms. “This means the germ could have spread undetected in that health care facility,” the CDC said. That is what has been happening for decades with all sorts of infections, from methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) to killer Clostridium difficile infections. Inappropriate overuse of antibiotics is and has been a major factor, said Dr. Lance Price, who directs the Antibiotic Resistance Action Center at George Washington University. “Healthy people will carry these bugs without symptoms,” said Price, who was not involved in the CDC study. “We can spread them to susceptible people. We can become almost like a human mosquito, spreading these germs.” Healthy people can unknowingly transmit the germs to a cancer patient, someone getting an organ transplant, a vulnerable newborn or a frail elderly person. That’s when an infection can take hold and kill. “What the CDC is highlighting is the need, once you identify people carrying these bugs, to screen them and also their contacts to make sure they haven’t passed these bugs,” Price said. The CDC tested for two of the best-known superbug germs: carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae or CRE, and carbapenem-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa (CRPA) bacteria. They compared the new strategy to a more limited approach aimed at fighting another type of bacteria that resist antibiotics called extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs). The more assertive approach worked better. “We have seen that an aggressive strategy is needed and it works well,” Schuchat said. The intensive approach is expensive and time-consuming. It calls for rapid identification of resistance, something that itself requires a specialized lab. Then the affected clinic, hospital or nursing home has to make an infection control assessment and test patients without symptoms who may carry and spread the germ. “The strategy requires a coordinated response among health care facilities, labs, health departments and CDC through the Antibiotic Resistance Lab Network," the CDC said. “This is a very aggressive approach but containment of new resistance germs is really important," Schuchat added. "Otherwise we could see these new nightmare bacteria become very common and essentially untreatable.” Funding is key, said Dr. Paul Auwaerter, president of the Infectious Diseases Society of America. "The efforts detailed in the Vital Signs report were made possible through new congressional funding in 2016 to combat antibiotic resistance," Auwaerter said. "We urge Congress to sustain and to grow that investment so that further progress will prepare us to meet the future challenges of antibiotic resistance from a position of strength." Price said it is already difficult to get doctors, hospitals and clinics to implement other programs that work, which include regular hand washing and disinfection, as well as testing and the appropriate use of antibiotics. “I am a fan of what they are proposing to do,” he said. But it will do little to catch superbugs that are already spreading in communities. “I think what we need to do is not always wait for somebody to get sick. We need an active surveillance system,” Price said. Plus, doctors need to do the right thing when people do turn up sick. “They should be getting a culture before they write a prescription for an antibiotic,” he said. But doctors are not using the quick tests that already exist. “We need point-of-care tests, so that people can get that answer while they still at the doctor. Until payers start paying for these tests, no one is going to develop them,” Price said. In the meantime, doctors who want good ratings give patients what they demand: a prescription, even though antibiotics do not help viral infections and are helping drive the evolution of superbugs. “Nobody is writing a five-star review for that doctor who is a really good steward of antibiotics,” Price said.

The Engine That Drives Civilization Has Failed In America - Our Ruination Can Be Traced Back To The Decay And Disintegration Of The 'Family Unit' And America Becoming A Fatherless Nation

March 30, 2018 By Mary Taylor - All News Pipeline

Now you see him--now you don’t! When it comes to disappearing dads and fatherless homes, the American family isn’t what it used to be. In short, fatherlessness has become a crisis in this country, as pillars that once upheld the traditional American family—heterosexual married parents, at-home moms, generational boundaries, and parental discipline--give way to a new, looser morality that affects America’s children, and not for the better. The National Center for Fathering maintains that almost every social ill faced by today’s children is related to fatherlessness. The Center cites data showing that children raised in fatherless homes are more likely to be poor and to become involved in drug and alcohol abuse. “They are more likely to drop out of school, and suffer from health and emotional problems,” the site points out. “While boys are more at risk of becoming involved in crime, girls are more likely to become pregnant as teens.” A blog on Fathers Incorporated blames “broad changes in family demographics” for leaving many of America’s children without the support or involvement of their fathers. That’s another way of voicing a truth that more and more describes the plight of America today: the breakdown of families. It isn’t something you can easily discuss, even among friends. An article in the National Review described family breakdown as “a subject that many people are uncomfortable with.” “Everyone either is or knows and has a deep personal connection to someone who is divorced, cohabiting, or gay,” author Michael Barone writes. “Great numbers of people simply want to avoid awkward talk of what are seen as primarily personal issues or issues of individual morality.” In other words, the concept of traditional morality has changed, and society is now tracking the number of “nonmarital births”—children born to a mother, without the blessing of a father. It reflects the current national trend: couples living together or “hooking up” after a few dates, but not marrying anymore when children are on the way. When did all this start to happen? Most young people today can’t relate at all to the TV families like Ozzie and Harriett or The Waltons that served as models for the nation before divorce rates began to spiral in the mid-1960’s. As religious and social barriers started to crumble, children found themselves fatherless with divorce leaving single moms and weekend fathers who didn’t always live up to visitation rights. By 2012 statistics and research by the US Department of Census showed 43 percent of US children living without their father. A startling 90% of homeless and runaway children were from fatherless homes. The problem was universal, not confined to a single ethnic group. But a Vespa survey in 2013 revealed that 58 percent of black children and 31 percent of Hispanic children were living without their biological fathers. As the numbers continue to climb today, we are inclined to ask, what is happening to the American family? Is it becoming a vanishing species? Certainly this isn’t the way it was from the beginning, not the way God’s word says he intended life on this planet to be. “God sets the lonely in families.” Psalm 68:6. “Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.” Psalm 127: 3-5 Father absence has become so rampant in the African-American community that Pastor T.D. Jakes, whose sermons regularly fill the 8,000-seat Potters House in Dallas, has made it the topic of many of his books and sermons. Recently he has produced videos like Fatherless Child and Healing Fatherless America. Jakes’ “ManPower” conferences encourage African American men to assume the roles of faithful husbands, caring fathers, and dependable providers. He regularly reminds men and women in his church that they can have a positive effect on building healthy families. “For children raised without fathers, there is a hole in the soul many try to fill with promiscuity, drugs and other unhealthy behavior,” the pastor said. “But there is a way everyone can fill it in a positive way—by giving what you didn't get. You can fulfill that role for another fatherless child.” Another timely question is, what about teenage boys who father children? Watchtower Online Library notes that teen fathers rarely take any long-term responsibility when it comes to a girlfriend’s positive pregnancy test. An article on the Library site quoted one teenage boy whose girlfriend became pregnant: “I just told her, ‘See ya’ round,’“he said. The article pointed out that without parental pressure, many boys are content to go their own way and let paternity become a girl problem. Neither do millennial men always step up the plate to acknowledge the consequences of their sleepovers and casual dating hookups. When those consequences involve the untimely announcement of a new life on the way, suddenly a guy’s freedom never looked so good. As for women facing an unexpected pregnancy, many soon realize they’ve been looking for love in the wrong places with all the wrong partners. The glow of romantic love suddenly fades when they consider single motherhood without a father willing to help protect and provide for little ones. Sometimes then, the American dream of happily ever after fades and both parties begin to look for a way out. For men particularly, it’s bug-out time. A woman left alone may consider several options, none of which are promising for the new life about to come on the scene. She can choose to carry her baby and raise the child alone or opt to use the services of an accredited adoption agency. But more and more in this country, what used to be the last option---one that no one really ever spoke about--is now becoming the first. Today’s culture has conditioned many young pregnant women to find benefits in becoming pro-choice, willingly following the callous crowd to centers like Planned Parenthood for an abortion. So the would-be dad is let off the hook, never to have to confront the fate of the child he fathered. The attitude often is, just give me my freedom, and I don’t want to know the rest. But this scenario flies in the face of God’s plan for mankind to marry, have children and populate the earth. In fact, the Bible tells us that children are a sign of God’s blessing on the family. “So God created man in his own image….Male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them ‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it.’” Genesis 1:27,28 “Children are a blessing and a gift from the Lord.” Psalm 127:3 The message, according to God’s word, is clear: Procreation and children equal blessings for a nation while a land without fathers becomes largely, a land without God and a moral society. David Blankenhorn’s book Fatherless America, was written in the 1970’s when he looked ahead and saw a time when the nation would suffer from father flight, a trend that he predicted would change the shape of our society. He foresaw that the U.S. of our generation would be divided into two groups, separate and unequal. “They will live fundamentally divergent lives,” Blankenhorn wrote. “One group will receive basic benefits—psychological, social, economic, educational and moral—that are denied to the other group.” He maintained that the primary fault line dividing the two groups would not be race, religion, class, education or gender. It would be patrimony—the presence, or not—of a father. “One group will consist of adults who grew up with the daily presence and provision of fathers and the other did not. It will create a dual citizenry—the haves and the have-nots of our nation’s adult world.”

Parkland, We Have a Problem!

Thursday, March 29, 2018

Breaking News as of April 1, 2018: It has just been revealed that a permit for the Washington DC "March for Our Lives" demonstration, supposedly organized to protest the Parkland Florida school mass shootings, was requested months before the killings occurred! See this article which contains official confirmation from the Washington DC Police Department from The Washington Standard for details and circulate widely. On Valentine's Day, February 14, 2018, a mass murder occurred at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida resulting in the shooting deaths of seventeen people. I am not a fan of the Left or of its "gun control" movement, an admission that will not be news to frequent readers of this page. With that bias fully disclosed, this post identifies problems within the tragedy's reported sequence of events. The event timeline shown below, except for the 9:32 a.m. and 2:52 p.m. entries, is taken from the SunSentinal newspaper in Parkland and the link to the paper's original article is here. Items that require further investigation, explanation, or that just do not make sense are in shown in red font. 9:32 a.m. The 9:32 time is taken from David Hogg's tape in which he claims to be videotaping an interview with fellow student, Alex View. The following exchange was recorded and we've provided a link to the video just below this excerpted dialogue: David Hogg: “This is Alex View. This recording is taken at 9:32 on February 14th 2018, Alex, are you ok with me recording this?” Alex View: “Yes, I am ok with you recording this. I personally have rallied for gun rights and less control, not necessarily less control but this experience has definitely changed my viewpoint.” Here's the link and this video's content is a huge problem for the "March for Our Lives" movement. Hogg's interview with Alex View begins at approximately the 0:57 second mark. Some have attempted to explain the apparent discrepancy between the 9:52 time Hogg provided on the video and the 2:21 p.m. start time of Cruz's killing spree by saying that perhaps the video was shot at 9:32 p.m. However, on February 14, 2018, sunset in Parkland Florida occurred at 6:13 p.m. By 9:52 p.m., it was completely dark. The video that is playing concurrent with Hogg's interview shows students and emergency responders walking around the campus in broad daylight. Moreover, David Hogg himself obligingly destroys this explanation by claiming on this Tweet that the time problem was the result of "manipulative editing". 2:06 p.m. Uber picks up Cruz. 2:19 p.m. Uber drops Cruz off at Stoneman Douglas High School, just before the school day ends, when gates are open and it’s easy to enter the campus. 2:21 p.m. Cruz enters the east stairwell of Building 12 with an AR-15 rifle in a black case and begins shooting. 2:28:35 p.m. Cruz exits Building 12 and runs west towards the tennis courts and then heads south. 2:29:51 p.m. Cruz crosses field and runs west with others who are fleeing the area. 2:50 p.m. Cruz arrives at Walmart, enters the store and buys a drink at the interior Subway, then leaves on foot. 2:51 p.m. First notice of shootings to Broward Health North. 2:52 p.m. David Hogg is the source of the 2:52 p.m. time on this video. EDITOR'S NOTE: This video was embedded here from a link to the LA Times. It appears the Times has taken steps to cripple that link since it was posted here. You may still be able to find it if you'll do a search on "David Hogg Parkland Closet Video". My apologies for the inconvenience. It was allegedly taped during the massacre as Hogg hid in a school closet with fellow students. On the tape, he even names Cruz (whom he did not know) as the probable gunman. The idea that a seventeen year old student would interview fellow students about gun control (or anything else for that matter) with shots ringing out and fellow students dying around him is just too absurd to merit comment. 2:55 p.m. First victim arrives at ER at Broward Health North. 3:01 p.m. Cruz goes to nearby McDonalds, sits down for a short time and then leaves on foot. 3:33 p.m. First patient arrives at Broward Health Medical Center. 3:41 p.m. Cruz is detained near 4700 Wyndham Lakes Drive., Coral Springs by Coconut Creek Officer Michael Leonard. After being identified by witnesses, Cruz is placed under arrest. That concludes the timeline for the day of the shooting. Another problematic video was shot on February 17th 3 days after the massacre, following a Fort Lauderdale gun control rally. Here's the link. At about the 4:26 mark, Hogg begins speaking. Pay close attention to what he says: "On the day of the shooting, I got my camera and got on my bike and road as fast as I could three miles from my house to the school to get as much video and to get as many interviews as I could because I knew that this could not be another mass shooting." That is very odd phrasing to say the least. Why would Hogg say he knew "it could not be another mass shooting" if he was present during the slaughter, particularly if the video he allegedly took in a school closet during the massacre is authentic? Now consider the text of another Hogg interview excerpted from this video at Vox.com. Because of timing. At 6 pm after the shooting, I took my camera, got on my bike. I rode in basically twilight. And I ride my bike three miles down winding sidewalks and find my way to the school, as I’ve done in previous years. All the while, I was making sure my camera bag didn’t rip open, because if you zip it a certain way, the camera falls out, and it would be destroyed. I start shooting B-roll, and I see Fox News over there. I knew I wanted to talk on the news and make sure there was advocacy, especially with so many people from the [National Rifle Association] and different gun-toting Americans who watch Fox News. I went on the day of [the shooting], and said, “There cannot be another mass shooting,” and I think that’s partially why. But also other people started saying that at the same time. Which would be fine, except that is not what he said on camera. He did not say, “There cannot be another mass shooting,” which sounds like something a passionate activist might say. No, instead he said, "This could not be another mass shooting," which sounds like something someone who didn't know what was happening might say. Substituting "There cannot be" for "this could not be" conveys an entirely different meaning. The Left is now outraged over the public's lack of enthusiasm for this allegedly student-led and organized "March for Our Lives" movement and its events, turnout for which has been significantly less than its fired-up advocates anticipated despite an unremitting 24/7 drum-beat of passionate media advocacy. I have no ready explanation for the narrative's very real internal problems. However, real journalists, interested in fact rather than propaganda, could perform a public good by answering the questions raised in this post and by identifying the sources of money that paid for the shiny "March for Our Lives" buses, commercially-produced signs, media advertising, and logistical support. I won't hold my breath waiting for that to happen.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) revealed to Fox News host Laura Ingraham Thursday evening that disgraced former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe lied repeatedly to the Justice Department. Peter Voogd Interviews Amy Porterfield On How to Master Social Media & Build a Real Brand

JORDAN: “McCabe didn’t lie just once, he lied four times. He lied to James Comey. He lied to the Office of Professional Responsibility and he lied twice under oath to the Inspector General. Remember, this is Andrew McCabe, Deputy Director of the FBI. This is Andrew McCabe, the text messages between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page talking about Andy’s office, the meeting where they talk about the insurance policy in case Donald Trump is actually President of the United StatesFour times he lied about leaking information to the Wall Street Journal.” “Ex-FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe admitted Saturday he was “confused and distracted” when he talked to investigators about alleged misconduct during a 2016 investigation of the Trump campaign,” reported the New York Post. Earlier this month, Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe on the recommendation of FBI disciplinary officials. “Both the OIG and FBI OPR reports concluded that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor − including under oath − on multiple occasions,” Sessions said in a statement. According to The New York Times and Washington Post, Inspector General Michael Horowitz is set to accuse McCabe of not only leaking to the media, but then misleading the Justice Department about it. The New York Times reported: A Justice Department review is expected to criticize the former F.B.I. deputy director, Andrew G. McCabe, for authorizing the disclosure of information about a continuing investigation to journalists, according to four people familiar with the inquiry. The disgraced FBI official reportedly authorized a leak to the Wall Street Journal, leading to an October 2016 article revealing an internal dispute between FBI and Justice Department officials about how to handle the Clinton email investigation after discovering classified emails on former Congressman Anthony Weiner’s laptop.

Considering the unbelievable actions by feckless Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday we are once again posting this from October 2017. Two of the loudest slogans that Americans bellowed at Trump rallies last year during the run up to the election were “Drain the Swamp” – It’s amazing that the most important and emotional slogans during the campaign represented what Americans wanted from this President! The Obama years were full of shocking, disturbing, corrupt and criminal actions by a radical far left administration and the DC swamp that kept it afloat. Americans wanted this all cleaned up. Americans want Trump to drain the swamp. Now after nine months in office, much has been done. The stock market is on a record rally, the greatest stock market rally ever. Americans are finding work. The economy is on fire and illegal immigration is way down. Fewer Americans today are on food stamps which was Obama’s major accomplishment. The wall is being designed and selected. But what has happened with the swamp? The answer lies with President Trump’s Attorney General. Day after day since he was sworn in as AG, Jeff Sessions has failed his President and the American people. In July, after his son in law was brought in for questioning related to the fake Russia collusion story about President Trump having ties with the Russians, the President fired off at his AG – He started by tweeting – Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump campaign – “quietly working to boost Clinton.” So where is the investigation A.G. The President was right in being upset with this Attorney General. Sessions recused himself from any Russia related work and then assisted in the hiring of corrupt Assistant AG Rod Rosenstein, who was involved in the Clinton Uranium One scandal and cover-up. Rosenstein then created a special investigation into Trump and Russia colluding in the election and hired his long time friend and work colleague Robert Mueller, the former Head of the FBI who is also involved in the Uranium One cover-up scandal. It’s now suspected that Mueller is trying to cover-up Deep State crimes with the Clintons. Day after day Sessions’ Department of Justice and the FBI prevent requests from Judicial Watch in obtaining government information related to Obama and Clinton scandals and crimes. Where is Jeff Sessions? Why doesn’t he step in and make arrests, fire employees committing insubordination and deal with the corrupt and criminal employees in his Justice Department? If anyone would have said that nine months into a Trump Presidency the only investigation would be a Trump Russia collusion investigation, it would have seemed impossible.  Now it’s clear that Sessions is a bad actor. Sessions is compromised! He’s one of them! He’s the swamp! Senator Sessions was either lying when he presented himself as a Trump supporter or he was caught doing something he is terribly afraid may be leaked to the public. Sessions is afraid of being framed and outed. Right now it just doesn’t matter, his actions, whether due to blackmail or not, make Sessions as bad as Holder and Lynch, Obama’s corrupt AG’s, and the biggest snake in the swamp!

An Objective Analysis of the QAnon Phenomenon

March 28, 2018

Claiming to be a high-level government insider, “Q” has been posting cryptic messages on 8Chan, unveiling the extent of the “deep state” while claiming that it is about to be taken down. Here’s a look at this mind-boggling phenomenon. To some, “Q” is a hero, a patriot, and maybe even something of a savior. To others, Q is a troll conducting either an elaborate LARP (a live-action role-playing game) or a government-conducted PSYOP. At the center of it all: Hundreds of cryptic messages posted on a regular basis by an anonymous 8Chan user who claims to have “Q Clearance”, the “highest level of security within all departments”. (Although we don’t if Q is a man, woman or a group of people, the pronoun “he” will be used in this article for legibility). Through short forum posts comprised of keywords, codes, riddles, questions, pictures, and bizarre computer commands, Q claims to be delivering the “biggest intel drop in known history”. Every few days, a piece is added to a gigantic conspiracy puzzle which, once understood, is said to unlock the truth about the powers that be. And nothing less. Through his posts, Q describes a global elite that is evil, satanic, and bent on pedophilia. In his descriptions, this elite group deals with international human trafficking, it orchestrates false flag events to advance its agenda, and conducts occult rituals behind closed doors. It owns and uses Hollywood, mainstream media and social networks to control the narrative and to censor the truth. While the above might not surprise the average “truther”, Q’s message has a startling twist: Donald Trump is actually raging a silent war against this globalist elite and is even brewing a major “counter-coup” to retake the American government. According to Q, Mueller’s investigation regarding Russian collusion is a front. In actuality, he’s about to indict hundreds of high-profile politicians and celebrities including the Clintons, Podestas, and Soros of this world. This operation is expected to cause intense turmoil and even riots. Q followers refer to this period as “the storm” – a reference to Trump’s eyebrow-raising remark made on October 6th about a gathering of military officers being “the calm before the storm”. When asked what he meant, Trump responded: “You’ll see.” Here’s a look at the main elements of the Q phenomenon. Crumbs Q uses 8Chan for his intel drops – a board that is virtually unmoderated and populated with users who love to sleuth online and obsesses over details. For this reason, they refer to themselves as “autists”. The “autistic” element is necessary because Q claims he cannot reveal things directly. He must use codes and questions to “reduce sniffer programs that continually absorb and analyze data”. Q’s first post, made on October 28th, 2017, made a bold prediction about Hillary Clinton’s arrest, ensuing “massive riots” and the activation of the National Guard across the country on October 30th. Evidently, October 30th came and went, and none of this happened. This did not stop Q from adding hundreds of additional posts in the following months. The second crumb utilizes Q’s characteristic short questions and keywords to lay out the core of the plot. Like many other Q crumbs, this post refers to lots people, theories, and concepts. “Mockingbird” is a keyword that is often used by Q. It most likely refers to the CIA project Operation Mockingbird: “Operation Mockingbird was an alleged large-scale program of the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) that began in the early 1950s and attempted to manipulate news media for propaganda purposes. It funded student and cultural organizations and magazines as front organizations.” – Wikipedia, OPeration Mockingbird Q’s crumb states that Trump is “isolated”, that he goes around the “three letter agencies”, that he relies on Military intelligence and that he purposely surrounded himself with generals. He adds that the battle is not about Democrats versus Republicans. Post #133 details Q’s conception of the global elite which, in his words, is hard to swallow. This post states that the “puppet masters” are based on 3 “sides”, like a triangle: The Saudis, the Rothschilds, and the Soros. At the center of the triangle, the “eye” is fed by governments worldwide using slush funds, wars, and environmental pacts. Q then alludes to Satan worship and Epstein Island. More specifically, he mentions the bizarre temple on Epstein Island, which he believes has hidden levels below. The temple on Jeffrey Epstein’s private Caribbean island Little St James. Jeffrey Epstein is a highly influential billionaire who was known for organizing massive parties with high-profile politicians and celebrities. Flight records show Bill Clinton flew on Epstein’s plane 26 times. In 2008, Epstein was convicted of soliciting an underage “sex slave” for prostitution, for which he served 13 months in prison. “Brought in on the billionaire’s private jets, nicknamed the Lolita Express by locals, numerous teenage girls were allegedly made to take part in depraved orgies at his US Virgin Islands bolthole.” – THe Telegraph, Stephen Hawking pictured on Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘Island of Sin’ Later crumbs allude to the importance of “spirit cooking” and mind controlled slaves in Hollywood. Analyzing each crumb could fill an encyclopedia. Throughout his posts, Q touches on a variety of topics such as the Vegas shooting, the Saudi regime change, the North Korean negotiations, the tracking of Edward Snowden, a push for an Internet Bill of Rights and much more. For many, these claims are hard to believe and “fake news”. However, Q’s “proofs” – evidence that he is directly connected with the POTUS – has turned many skeptics into believers.

Proofs To prove the fact that he is close to the POTUS, Q submitted revealing pictures and predicted some POTUS-related events. This led many to believe that he is indeed a White House insider. Some even believe Q is Trump himself. Here are some examples of proofs. 1- Do It Q A Trump tweet posted on November 8th, which celebrated the one year anniversary of his election win, is said to contain clues relating to Q. If one goes on Trump’s official Twitter account to this specific picture, the file name will be DOITQJ8UIAAowsQ.jpg. The fact that the first letters spell out “DO IT Q” is interpreted by some as clue confirming that Q is directly connected to Trump. Also, the headline of the newspaper in front of Trump says: “Princes and tycoons arrested in Saudi crackdown on corruption” – a topic often brought up in Q crumbs. Finally, this is one of the tweet’s replies: 2- Special Place On December 10th, Q’s crumb said that they’ve picked out a “special place” for GS (possibly George Soros). On December 17th, Trump posted a tweet using the words “special place” which was interpreted as another clue. Q often insists on noting the similarity between his posts and the tweets sent out by the POTUS.

3- The Pen On December 12th, Q posted a picture of a pen next to a White House stationery with the message “Merry Christmas”. 10 minutes later, Trump posted tweet saying Happy Hanukkah. When an 8Chan user highlighted this connection, Q posted another picture of this mysterious pen. In an interview, the journalist Jerome Corsi believes to have identified the mysterious desk. “That’s the Laurel desk. It’s the one that Obama used and apparently Trump is also using at Camp David. That’s the desktop at Camp David. The pen is a Montblanc ink pen that Trump has used for a long time. That’s Camp David over the weekend and that picture had to have been taken by somebody who was there with President Trump. His pen on the desk; that pretty much authenticates that QAnon is very close to Donald Trump and present in some of these really important inner circle White House meetings.”

Obama sitting in the Laurel office in Camp David. Is it the same desk? 4- Consensual Tweet On January 7th, a Trump tweet contained a mistake where the word “consensual” was used instead of “consequential”. Left: The original tweet. Right: The corrected tweet. Although the mistake was corrected a few minutes afterward, it quickly made headlines and was widely ridiculed. An example of a headline mocking the consensual tweet. However, according to Q followers, the typo was no accident. The fact that Trump omitted and then added a word with letter Q was interpreted as a message from Trump to Q followers. Q himself added that it was no accident. 5- Prediction In the evening of December 10th, Q’s drop contained the words Blunt & Direct Time. The next one mentioned “false flag(s)” and “fireworks”. The next morning, a pipe bomb partially detonated in the New York City Subway’s Times Square–42nd Street/Port Authority Bus Terminal station. The suspected bomber was identified by police as 27-year-old Akayed Ullah, a Salafi Muslim immigrant from Bangladesh. The following evening, Q explained what he meant by “Blunt & Direct Time”. BDT is the currency of Bangladesh. Therefore, the crumb implies that Q was aware of the coming “fireworks” and of the nationality of the terrorist. Several other proofs circulate around The Storm, all of which can be interpreted as undeniable clues from the POTUS himself or mere coincidences dreamt up by overactive minds. Media Coverage As expected, media coverage about Q is extremely biased, partisan and opinionated. One of the first articles regarding Q appeared in NYmag. The article states: “A new conspiracy theory called “The Storm” has taken the grimiest parts of the internet by, well, storm. the Storm conspiracy features secret cabals, a child sex-trafficking ring led (in part) by the satanic Democratic Party, and of course, countless logical leaps and paranoid assumptions that fail to hold up under the slightest fact-based scrutiny.” Newsweek magazine’s coverage of the phenomenon is also extremely critical. The title says it all: “How the Storm Became the Biggest Fake News Story of 2018“. In March, the Comedy Central show The Opposition With Jordan Keppler poked fun at Q and The Storm. At the other end of the spectrum, Alex Jones firmly believes in the authenticity of Q. On December 24th he stated: “A lot of what QAnon has said, I had already gotten separately from my White House sources, my Pentagon sources, my CIA sources.” Liz Crokin, a journalist for TownHall.com has stated in an interview that she believes that Q might be Trump himself. “Now, I believe Q is President Trump, working possibly with Stephen Miller, to drop this information behind the scenes to get a campaign going, to red-pill people as to what is going on with The Storm, and their takedown of the Deep State, which includes the Deep State pedophile scene. I’ve been telling people for a very long time the stuff that goes on with these elitists, these occult elitists, who literally are raping, sacrificing children, drinking blood, like eating babies literally. It’s too hard for an average person that has no idea that any of this is going on to take it in all at once. So there’s been a very orchestrated effort behind the scenes by President Trump and his administration to slowly wake up the public as to what, that A), this goes on, that it’s real, and B), that they’re taking down these people. When there are mass arrests, and there are names like Hillary Clinton that pop up, or thrown in prison for sex trafficking, there’s not mass hysteria. People will realize, ‘Oh my gosh, maybe this is real,’ or like, this isn’t just some kind of coup or whatever, this is real and this is really going on.” In Conclusion While Q is an extremely polarizing figure, there are facts about the phenomenon that should be obvious to all. First, everything about Q is 100% pro-Trump and in full accord with Trump’s entire political agenda. From a PR perspective, it is an effective and innovative way of bolstering support for Trump while bypassing mass media. But is this all true? Is Trump truly taking down a network of globalist Satanists? Is this why 90% of the media coverage of Trump negative? Conversely, is The Storm actually a way of gaining the support of “truthers” while, in actuality, no storm is actually happening? Could it be the most elaborate LARP in human history, conducted by a brilliant troll? One thing is for sure: There is something profoundly messianic about the Q phenomenon. Prophecies of great tribulations and promises of delivering the world from Satan’s followers indeed take on epic, biblical proportions. Through “miraculous” tweets and pictures, Q has converted droves of skeptics into devout followers who are now believers and are ready to spread his word. Q himself adds to this mystique by often mentioning God and quoting the Lord’s Prayer. So, is Q the real deal? As he says himself, “truth always wins”. Only time will tell if his prophecies of a Final Judgement will come to pass or if he’ll end up being another false prophet.

The Second Amendment Was Written For Just This Purpose | Jack Mullen

The right of the citi­zens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered as the palladium of the liberties of a republic, since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers, and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them. – US vs Miller 1939 “No freeman shall ever be debarred the use of arms [within his own lands or tenements].”18 1 The Papers of Thomas Jefferson 344 (J. Boyd ed. 1950)). I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God. Oath of Allegiance It should be clear now, Americans have an obligation to arm themselves and prepare for the Civil War being fomented by an enemy whose allegiances are to a world government; a world government where they rule as tyrants over all people. The Framers of the US Constitution understood this would likely face Americans and America someday — That day has come. And be it further enacted, That whenever the laws of the United States shall be opposed or the execution thereof obstructed, in any state, by combinations too powerful to be suppressed by the ordinary course of judicial proceedings, or by the powers vested in the marshals by this act, the same being notified to the President of the United States, by an associate justice or the district judge, it shall be lawful for the President of the United States to call forth the militia of such state to suppress such combinations, and to cause the laws to be duly executed. Militia Act 1792 America is facing a war on two fronts: enemies domestic and enemies foreign. It was no secret the founders provided the guarantee of the Second Amendment for the purpose of keeping their oath – “So Help Me God!.” Without the Second Amendment, none of the words of the Constitution would have any more force than tradition, courtesy and honesty. Currently tradition, courtesy and honesty have been attacked and are now in triage. In the words of the Former President and Buffoon George W. Bush: “Stop throwing the Constitution in my face! It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!” In the spirit of the psychopath explaining away inconsistencies in his life’s narrative, enemies, foreign and domestic, through the use of the captured mainstream media, try to convince the American people the Second Amendment is outdated and no longer necessary for any purpose including “hunting” (nothing about the second amendment was related to hunting) or self protection. Like manipulative narcissist, the enemy insists “if only” the people would give up their right to self protection, the Governments will faithfully protect them – and the nation, overall, will be a safer place. Using techniques developed for psychological torture, the enemy uses repetitive mantra with armies of human badgers agitating for more “gun control,” reinforced by false-fabricated-staged trauma inducing events, often perpetrated on children, in their attempt to bypass critical thinking internally and due process and the will of the people externally, for purposes of disarming the people. In the spirit of malignant narcissists or fully evolved psychopaths, the enemy telegraphs their intentions (projection) by the degree to which they are willing to terrorize children and the public at large to accomplish their goals. Psychopaths are not just identified by their lack of empathy, conscience and their ruthless, manipulative, single-minded, narcissistic and opportunistic ways but also by their almost total lack of application of “System 2” thinking. This means that they have a severe inability to deal with complexity, the welfare of others, or with any further effects of their actions beyond their immediate self-serving objective! 1 Because Americans face fear-causing, trauma inducing, psychological attacks every single day in the form of enemy controlled national and local news, passive aggressive advertising, and the agitation by enemy hostiles mercilessly pushing agendas, we have become emotionally overwhelmed, numb, with a lack of the time necessary to process the traumatic events. These are the tactics of psychological warfare Psychological Operations or PSYOP are planned operations to convey selected information and indicators to audiences to influence their emotions, motives, objective reasoning, and ultimately the behavior of organizations, groups, and individuals. Used in all aspects of war, it is a weapon whose effectiveness is limited only by the ingenuity of the commander using it. A psychological warfare campaign is a war of the mind. Your primary weapons are sight and sound. PSYOP can be disseminated by face-to-face communication, audio visual means (television), audio media (radio or loudspeaker), visual media (leaflets, newspapers, books, magazines and/or posters). The weapon is not how its sent, but the message it carries and how that message affects the recipient. Major Ed Rouse (Ret) Psychological Operations/Warfare America is under-siege Enemies are operating from the inside, usurping positions of authority, creating de-facto government – while being funded from accomplices outside in the form of banking cartels (Central Banks) and the use of mercenary armies causing terrorism and regime changes abroad which is used as further psychological trauma aimed at Americans. America is being traumatized, and everyday pressure intensifies – the call to disarm get louder. It matters not that gun related violence in the USA is falling. It does not matter so-called “Assault Rifles”, the primary target of the disarmers, are involved in negligible gun violence each year; Less than 350 events involving “AR” rifles were reported in 2014. In a population of over 300 Million this number is just noise – negligible compared to other more egregious problems leading to premature death. Students Mobilized as Activist in a Cause they Do Not Understand. Recent marches by Students, agitating on behalf of professional disarmers, were organized by specialized political groups and individuals including ((((((Michael Bloomberg)))))) and his “Every Town For Gun Safety,” Gabriella Giffords, “Giffords” organization, George Soros Funded “Move On,” Planned Parenthood, the Women’s March LA, and the help of celebrities including ((((((Stephen Spielberg)))))), George Clooney, Oprah and others. ((((((Bloomberg)))))) tossing in $1 million and Giffords funding and arranging for students to come to the “March for Our Lives” from Florida. An article on the Canada Free Press website explains how the Disarm America agenda is organized and funded by Anti-American, dishonest, Zionists and Communists working to take down the last nation on Earth where the population is legally armed. From the Canada Free Press article Take Everytown, the noisiest and most dishonest anti-gun group on the scene. The one consistent thing about anti-gun groups is that that they are usually the opposite of what their name says they are. Everytown for Gun Safety was formed out of two other groups: Moms Demand Action and Mayors Against Illegal Guns. Both are actually front groups for (((((((((Michael Bloomberg))))))))), the lefty billionaire and former boss of the Big Apple, who used New York City resources to host at least one of its websites. So Everytown is really New York City. March for Our Lives is on every cable channel, but who runs it? The photogenic teen fronts are out front. But it’s obvious to everyone that a bunch of teens don’t have the resources and skills to coordinate a nationwide movement. Instead it’s the experienced activists who are actually running things. The March for Our Lives Fund is incorporated as a 501(c)(4). Donations to 501(c)(4) groups are not tax- deductible. And they don’t have to disclose donors. That’s why they’re a great dark money conduit. But the March for Our Lives website suggests that donors who want to make a tax-deductible donation should write a check to the “March For Our Lives—Everytown Support Fund”. How will (((((((((Bloomberg)))))))))’s organization provide support for the supposed student group? Why have two March for Our Lives Fund, one dark and one light? And why is one being routed through the godfather of the gun control lobby? The students being organized to “March For Our Lives,” have no idea they are being played as pawns in a serious game to disarm Americans. These students and the younger children used during the event for photo opportunities are being used as political tools to support agendas which they are not old enough to understand. Watch the video below to understand how subversive Neo Communist and Zionist in the media organize children into a polished production of very selective slogans in order to work the agenda to disarm America. Children being used by adults with large amounts of money, to be featured in this highly structured psychological operation. I think this is scary stuff — Something Americans are not used to and will have a hard time understanding the KGB propaganda used in this psyop. It is only because of the Second Amendment that I can write these words . In gun free (people forcible disarmed) nations like Venezuela, roaming death squads, likely supporting the political heirarchy currently in place, room the streets killing groups of people. In June of 2012 we see in the news from Venezuela: Venezuela has brought a new gun law into effect which bans the commercial sale of firearms and ammunition. Hugo Chavez’s government says the ultimate aim is to disarm all civilians, but his opponents say the police and government may not have the capacity or the will to enforce the new law. Criminal violence is set to be a major issue in presidential elections later in the year. 2 In 2018 we find in the Venezuela News Feed: A death squad in rural Venezuela gunned down 11 people in cold blood at dawn Saturday in an ongoing gang dispute. Victims were told to get out of their three respective houses in a town in the Trujillo state, and were then executed. The killers used a combination of shotguns and handguns to murder their targets. Three of the victims were minors, and one victim was from Colombia. The killings are reportedly retribution for an ongoing feud between rival gangs “Cagón” and “Los Cáscaras.” The gangs’ names respectively translate to “Frightened” and “The Fruit Peels.” 3 It is not just Venezuela, similar stories can be found around the world in places were the people were deliberately disarmed. In disarmed South Africa, their Constitution (just a “goddamned piece of paper”) was changed: The country’s constitution is now likely to be amended to allow for the confiscation of white-owned land without compensation, following a motion brought by radical Marxist opposition leader Julius Malema. On Wednesday, the South African Parliament voted in a landslide to forcibly seize farmland from white farm owners for redistribution to black South Africans. This comes after a 2017 audit that discovered nearly 72% of farmland in the nation was owned by white farmers. 4 In Europe, forced immigration has caused violence and rape in once peaceful white nations; Sweden now has Europe’s highest recorded rates of sexual assaults. But it’s not just rape – violent crimes are raging across Europe as immigrants from incompatible cultures are forced on the local populations. Those forcing the immigrants on the peoples of Europe are the same people working the “disarm America” movement in the USA. According to a Jewish Study Group Leader in Sweden, I think there is a resurgence of anti-Semitism because at this point in time Europe has not yet learned how to be multicultural. And I think we are going to be part of the throes of that transformation, which must take place. Europe is not going to be the monolithic societies they once were in the last century. Jews are going to be at the centre of that. It’s a huge transformation for Europe to make. They are now going into a multicultural mode and Jews will be resented because of our leading role. But without that leading role and without that transformation, Europe will not survive. 7 We have shown in previous articles that the main advocates, crusaders and agitators for disarming Americans are Jewish Groups. Checking the newsfeeds for violent crime in Europe we can easily find many articles The number of violent crimes and sex offences recorded by police in England and Wales has risen sharply over the past year, figures suggest. Knife crime and robbery also increased in the 12 months to September 2017 compared with the previous year, the Office for National Statistics said. About 5.3 million crimes were recorded in all in that 12-month period, up 14%. 5 Migrants may be responsible for most of a recent rise in violent crime in Germany, research commissioned by the government suggests. The study used data from Lower Saxony, a state where more than 90% of the rise was attributed to young male migrants. The researchers say the findings are not surprising because many migrants who arrived in Germany in recent years are single males aged 14-30. 6 Recently Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens said in an op-ed piece, the Second Amendment should be repealed. Talking about the student “protesters” Stevens said “But the demonstrators should seek more effective and more lasting reform. They should demand a repeal of the Second Amendment.” 8 Stevens, a 98 year old Democrat, echoing the sentiments of tyrants through out history, continues to claim ” American citizens do not have the individual right to own a firearm for self-protection” Stevens, one of the dissenting votes during “District of Columbia vs Heller”, worked diligently toward disarming America by attempting to change the definition of the words “Bear Arms”, according to the majority opinion, … the meaning of “bear arms” that petition­ers and JUSTICE STEVENS propose is not even the (some­ times) idiomatic meaning. Rather, they manufacture a hybrid definition, whereby “bear arms” connotes the actual carrying of arms (and therefore is not really an idiom) but only in the service of an organized militia. Stevens is also a friend of Israel and the Jewish Agenda, and according to the THE NEW YORK JEWISH WEEK (April 14, 2010,) “Most of the Jewish groups closely tracking court decisions favor Stevens’ liberal record, with minor qualifications, and do not believe that President Obama will choose a replacement who deviates from the norm.” We understand there is a Jewish Agenda, in America, to disarm the American people. But wish to remind Israel and the multitudes of dual Citizen Israelis living in America, the United States was founded and built by European’s with a European culture and heritage. Further, Europeans are still the dominate racial group in America; America is not an Israeli satellite state. Jews wishing to be disarmed can move to any part of the world where being disarmed is not a matter of choice. But the USA is a European founded nation with European traditions and culture and a nation founded on the right of the Citizens to protect themselves at all times by being armed. Any one attempting to Usurp this law, like New Jersey or the State of Maryland through legal fiction labeled Statutes of Law are in violation of the Law and thus criminals. Americans are now and have been, since the signing of the Declaration of Independence, Freeman, with the rights and the tools necessary to remain free codified in Law. “The right to bear arms has always been the dis­tinctive privilege of freemen. Aside from any neces­sity of self-protection to the person, it represents among all nations power coupled with the exercise of a certain jurisdiction. . . . [I]t was not necessary that the right to bear arms should be granted in the Constitu­tion, for it had always existed.” J. Ordronaux, Consti­tutional Legislation in the United States 241–242 (1891). Stevens’ can have his opinion, thanks to the First Amendment, but when the Second Amendment is ‘repealed’ all other Amendments will be honored when convenient or by courtesy, but not by Law, because Law becomes nothing but a ‘goddamned piece of paper’ in the eyes of fully evolved narcissists with deadly power. People who appreciate and wish to keep the protections against Government provided by the Constitution, including the Bill of Rights, must now understand the Constitution is just paper; the words of men now long gone. For this document to continue to protect and provide for Life, Liberty and Happiness, people must believe in the words and use them to find the moral courage to stand against the destruction of the American Republic. The founders’ found victory in their War for Liberty. It is now left to us to keep the fires of Liberty burning. The Second Amendment Was Written For Just This Purpose We leave the reader with a quote from “United States Versus Miller 307 U.S. 174”: “The importance of [the Second Amendment] will scarcely be doubted by any persons who have duly re­ flected upon the subject. The militia is the natural de­ fence of a free country against sudden foreign invasions, domestic insurrections, and domestic usurpations of power by rulers. It is against sound policy for a free people to keep up large military establishments and standing armies in time of peace, both from the enor­ mous expenses with which they are attended and the facile means which they afford to ambitious and un­ principled rulers to subvert the government, or tram­ple upon the rights of the people. The right of the citi­zens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered as the palladium of the liberties of a republic, since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers, and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them. And yet, though this truth would seem so clear, and the impor­tance of a well-regulated militia would seem so unde­niable, it cannot be disguised that, among the Ameri­can people, there is a growing indifference to any system of militia discipline, and a strong disposition, from a sense of its burdens, to be rid of all regulations. How it is practicable to keep the people duly armed without some organization, it is difficult to see. There is certainly no small danger that indifference may lead to disgust, and disgust to contempt; and thus gradually undermine all the protection intended by the clause of our national bill of rights.”

Israeli Stealth Fighters Fly Over Iran Amid Speculation Of Imminent War

by Tyler Durden Fri, 03/30/2018 - 05:24

One week after Israel demonstratively released a video of a 2007 airstrike on a suspected Syrian nuclear facility (after refusing to officially acknowledge the operation for more than a decade), the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida reported late on Thursday that 2 Israeli F-35 stealth fighters had entered Iranian airspace over the past month. Sources quoted in Al-Jarida said that two stealth fighters flew over Syrian and Iraqi airspace to reach Iran, and even targeted locations in the Iranian cities Bandar Abbas, Esfahan and Shiraz. Then the two ultra advanced fighter jets circled at high altitude above Persian Gulf - read Iranian - sites suspected of being associated with the Iranian nuclear program. Ominously, the Kuwaiti newspaper also reports that the two jets went undetected by radar, including the Russian radar system located in Syria. It was unclear if the provocative Israeli operation was undertaken in coordination with the US army, which recently conducted joint exercises with the IDF (recall "Top US General Says American Troops Should Be Ready To Die For Israel") The Kuwaiti report added that the seven F-35 fighters in active service in the Israel Air Force have conducted a number of missions in Syria and on the Lebanese-Syrian border, and highlighted that the fighter jets can travel from Israel to Iran twice without refueling. As the J-Post puts it, "the act is a signal of heightened regional tensions, especially in light of recent Israeli military attacks in Syria, including against Iranian bases in the country." Of course, Israel has had no qualms about admitting it launched about 100 air strikes on Syria over the past five years, targeting Hezbollah terrorists, weapons convoys and infrastructure, and it is believed to be behind dozens more. Things turned ugly in February when an Israel attempt to provoke Syria and Iran backfired: one month ago, Israeli F-16 fighter jets entered Syrian airspace, striking 12 Iranian targets in Syria in response to an Iranian drone that was shot down over Israel. Two Israeli crew members were wounded when they ejected from their jet before it crashed, which, according to Israel, was determined to be caused by pilot error. In response to the Iranian drone, a senior Israeli official quoted by the JPost warned that Israel will react with force to Iran's efforts to entrench itself further in Syria: "the Iranians are determined to continue to establish themselves in Syria, and the next incident is only a matter of time,” he said, warning that Israel does not rule out that that the Islamic Republic will continue to try to attack Israel. Meanwhile, if Israel is looking for a military conflict spark, whether legitimate or "false flag", it may get this opportunity as soon as tomorrow, when the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas is reportedly planning a mass demonstration along Israel's border on Friday, prompting fears of a new war with the Jewish state ahead of the Passover holiday, according to regional experts and U.S. officials who say they are closely monitoring the situation. According to the Washington Free Beacon, following a recent military exercise described by observers as "unprecedented," Hamas leaders called for some 100,000 Gaza Strip resident to engage in six weeks of mass demonstrations along the Israeli border as Jewish families gear up for the Passover holiday, which begins Friday evening. Regional experts closely tracking the situation say the demonstrations are meant as cover for a mass military campaign to swarm Israel's border and stoke violence against the Jewish state. The situation is being closely monitored by Trump administration officials, who outlined concerns that Hamas could use civilian protesters as human shields as cover for attacks on Israeli forces. State Department officials told the Washington Free Beacon that they are aware of the upcoming protests and will be tracking the situation closely. "We are aware of calls by Hamas asking people to march along the Israeli border over the coming weeks," one U.S. official told the Free Beacon." We will monitor the situation and developments closely." The State Department also emphasized that it still considers Hamas a terror group and is aware of its routine use of human shields during terror operations. "Our position on Hamas has not changed," the official said. "It is a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization. Any use of human shields is absolutely unacceptable." Omri Ceren, a managing director at The Israel Project, a D.C.-based organization that works on Middle East issues, warned that Hamas is using civilian protests as cover for a massive military operation that could launch another regional war. Evidence suggests Hamas has already prepared to flood Israel with armed assets during the demonstration and has even positioned equipment such as tractors to shift the ground and erect fortifications. "Hamas is trying to trigger a Passover War and the U.N. seems eager to help them," Ceren said. "Hamas is preparing thousands of civilians to rush Israel's border, tear down the defensive fence, and provide cover as Hamas fighters flood into Israel." While Israeli military officials have planned to use as little force as possible to control any violent eruption, things could get out of hand quickly, Ceren said. "The Israelis will do everything possible to prevent escalation and avoid casualties, but this is the kind of thing that could go really bad really quickly," he explained. Of course, the alternative is that Israel will be delighted by, and eagerly welcome any military escalation as it will give it a greenlight to strike not only Palestine, but the country it accuses of being the biggest supporter of Hamas, Iran. In other words, there is a non-trivial probability that a war betwen Israel and Iran may break out as soon as this weekend, catalyzed by one of several potential triggers.

The Hayward Fault in California is the most dangerous earthquake fault in the USA and the single most urbanized earthquake fault in the United States

By Strange Sounds - Mar 29, 2018

California’s Hayward Fault is considered one of the most dangerous seismological zones in the United States. It runs through the densely populated hills of the East Bay, sketching a diagonal line between San Jose and Richmond and can be thought of as a branch of the main trunk of the San Andreas. Technically speaking, the Hayward is a right-lateral strike-slip fault. This means that it shows its everyday action in the form of aseismic creep, the slow, steady sliding of land along the fault’s margin. The symptoms of this tectonic origami are visible across the region in cracked asphalt, off-kilter curbstones, and leaning walls. Every day, people drive on roads and hike on trails that crisscross the Hayward. Children attend a school and play soccer on fields that straddle it. All of which is to say that the Hayward cuts an uncanny transect through the lives of hundreds of thousands of Bay Area residents. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the average rate of creep on the Hayward is 4.6 millimetres per year or about the length of a standard black garden ant, or a quarter of a jelly bean. Not a big deal you think! But the engine of this movement is far to the south, in the Gulf of California, where the seabed along the margin of the Pacific and North American Plates is spreading apart, putting pressure, in turn, on the San Andreas Fault. The sliding poses a threat to the built environment, of course, but it also has a beneficial function. In one sense, creep is our enemy, since it can damage buildings and infrastructure. In another sense, creep is our friend, because it helps relieve the strain on fault lines. The big problem What makes the Hayward so concerning is that it is not creeping quickly enough. In theory, it should be slipping about ten millimetres a year, roughly twice its observed rate. Over time, the deficit mounts until the rock formations along the fault can no longer tolerate it. That distance has to be accommodated eventually by sudden land movement, which is an earthquake. Studies of pond sediments along the fault suggest that these large, strain-relieving tremors have happened regularly in the past. It has been calculated that they occur every hundred and forty or hundred and fifty years. The last one took place on October 21, 1868 – a hundred and forty-eight years ago – and caused significant damage. Dozens of buildings, including an eighteenth-century Spanish mission in Fremont, were destroyed, and a twenty-mile-long crack opened in the earth between Fremont and Oakland. Miraculously, only thirty people were killed, largely because the population of the Bay Area was about four per cent of its present-day size. Until 1906, when a magnitude-7.8 quake devastated San Francisco, the Hayward event was known across the region as “the big one.” Seismologists aren’t sure whether the Hayward’s current built-up tectonic stress will be relieved in one large tremor or a series of smaller, less damaging ones. But what seems certain is that a repeat of the 1868 event would be catastrophic, resulting in heavy damage to thousands of structures and likely causing hundreds of deaths. A Hayward-based company called Risk Management Solutions has estimated that a magnitude-7.0 quake would result in between ninety-five billion and a hundred and ninety billion dollars in damage to commercial and residential property. An earlier study by the Association of Bay Area Governments laid out a “nightmare” scenario, predicting the destruction of a hundred and fifty-five thousand housing units and the displacement of three hundred and sixty thousand people. The average amount of slip in the magnitude-7.0 quake scenarios is four feet – two hundred and sixty-five years’ worth of aseismic creep triggered in an instant. Is it right to call the Hayward Fault the most dangerous fault of the United States? Of course you have the San Andreas and its many subsidiaries in and around Los Angeles. You also have the Cascadia subduction zone, which, when it eventually ruptures, could produce a tsunami that would inundate swaths of the Pacific Northwest. But the threat of the East Bay faults are more immediate. Since 1906, enough strain has accumulated for a couple of magnitude-7.0 earthquakes. Whichever fault you pick, it’s just time.

Report: Israeli Stealth Fighters Fly Over Iran Undetected

Jim Hoft by Jim Hoft March 29, 2018

Two Israeli fighters reportedly flew over Iran undetected this past month. The Kuwaiti paper Aljarida reported this on Thursday. Jerusalem Post reported: Two Israeli F-35 fighter jets entered Iranian airspace over the past month, Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida reported on Thursday. The act is a signal of heightened regional tensions, especially in light of recent Israeli military attacks in Syria, including against Iranian bases in the country. Sources quoted in Al-Jarida stated that two stealth fighters flew over Syrian and Iraqi airspace to reach Iran, and even targeted locations in the Iranian cities Bandar Abbas, Esfahan and Shiraz. Here is the translated report from Aljarida News: In a move that reflects regional tensions and comes in the midst of information about a plan for a US and Israeli military strike in Syria that will include Iranian positions there or possibly infect Iran itself, Al-Jarida learned from an informed source that two highly advanced F35 fighter jets Iran this month. The source said that the fighters crossed Syrian airspace into Iraqi airspace, including to Iran, where they carried out reconnaissance missions and targets in the areas of Bandar Abbas, Isfahan and Shiraz, flying at a high altitude over other sites suspected of its relationship with Iran’s nuclear program on the Gulf coast. He pointed out that the two F35 (stealth) aircraft exceeded all radars in the region, including the Russian radars installed in Syria, but refused to disclose whether the operation in coordination with the American side, knowing that Israel and the United States carried out this month exercises cobra Jr.. The seven F35 fighter jets that have entered service in Israel, some of which have recently carried out air strikes in Syria and on the Lebanese-Syrian border, can fly nonstop twice a day in each direction from Israel to Iran.

New 'Currency' In Decimated Socialist Venezuela Is The Machete - Children Joining Gangs In Desperate Attempt To Survive As Shortage-Plagued Dystopia Is A Foreboding Message To America

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die March 29, 2018

In this heartbreaking new story over at SHTFPlan by Mac Slavo he reports that hungry children in the failed socialist nation of Venezuela have taken to joining gangs to fight other children with sticks, knives and machete's with the prize of 'survival' on the line with the object of their fights something most Americans throw out in the garbage every day: scraps of food barely good enough to eat. As Slavo reports, the children in one particular 15-member gang, whose youngest member is only 10 years old, work together to survive vicious fights for what they consider 'quality garbage' that is tossed away in the few 'more affluent' areas still remaining in Venezuela, also scoping out restaurants for whatever they might throw away in the shortage-plagued dystopia that should be seen as a warning to America of our possible future should we continue along the path we're on. As this story over at the Miami Herald reports, once oil rich and exceedingly wealthy for South America with a health system envied across the region, the mass desertion of doctors who were able to leave combined with widespread corruption and medical shortages have decimated the country with highly contagious diseases spreading as chronic food and medicine shortages continue. And as the Herald story also reports, despite an outbreak of measles in Venezuela that has already spread to neighboring Brazil and Colombia, the Venezuelan government refuses to acknowledge the outbreak and thus refuses to do anything about it while the outbreak continues to spread. As another new heartbreaking story from the Miami Herald reports, these children are joining gangs because there isn't enough food for them in their homes nor communities. And so they form their own groups to protect each other, some of them coming from many miles away to join the gangs. From the Miami Herald story: Caramelo — who asked that the full names of the group’s members be withheld for fear that they will be targeted by police — has created a hierarchy within the Chacao gang. There’s an inner circle she calls the “small combo.” It includes her, Paola and seven other members who roam the city together to “recycle” black trash bags, meaning they search the bags for food and drink. Whatever they find, they share. The rest of the gang is left outside of the leadership circle for various reasons — violent behavior, keeping food to themselves or sometimes a personal dislike. But when it comes to defending their territory, all differences and antipathy are forgotten. Caramelo convenes all 15 members into the “big combo” to present a united front to gangs from different neighborhoods. That’s how Caramelo’s gang took control of Chacao even though many members don’t come from the neighborhood — including Caramelo, who was born and raised in Junquito, a Caracas neighborhood in the mountains about 10 miles away. A year ago, the gang was “stationed” around a supermarket at a mall called Centro Comercial Ciudad Tamanaco that generates tons of garbage. But a feared rival gang from the neighborhood Las Mercedes also wanted the garbage. Caramelo’s gang was attacked and chased out of the zone. So they took their weapons — knives, slingshots, broken glass and machetes — and seized the nearby neighborhood, Chacao. “At this point, we had enough members and we were organized. We pushed the other group out of here,” said gang member Patricio, 23, who added that the clashes with Las Mercedes group “toughened” them up. The reason for the violent takeover, which in gang slang is called a “change of government,” was simple and sad — Chacao’s many restaurants offer a better chance to find food in the garbage. With most children in Venezuela turned into hardened criminals before they reach adulthood just so they can survive into adulthood, in this recent story picked up by Zero Hedge which was originally published over at the Guardian they report that according to Stanford University professor Paul Ehrlich, the collapse of civilization is now a virtual certainty. While ANP hates to put potential dates upon future events that are out of our control, Ehrlich's prediction that this 'collapse' WILL happen, 'certainly within decades' according to him, might be coming to pass much sooner than even he expects. While we disagree with much of what Ehrlich argues, especially his 'solutions', we'll agree that humanity is now being 'driven over the edge' due to our "continuing destruction of the natural world that sustains all life on Earth". Warning that we are massively overconsuming natural products here while replacing them with synthetic chemicals, as Ehrlich warns, "there is an increasing toxification of the entire planet by synthetic chemicals that may be more dangerous to people and wildlife than 'climate change'" and we're seeing Ehrlich's warnings coming true in numerous stories about the mass deaths of animals happening all across the planet over recent years as meticulously kept track of by the End Times Blog. From the Guardian story: “Population growth, along with over-consumption per capita, is driving civilisation over the edge: billions of people are now hungry or micronutrient malnourished, and climate disruption is killing people.” “It is a near certainty in the next few decades, and the risk is increasing continually as long as perpetual growth of the human enterprise remains the goal of economic and political systems,” he says. “As I’ve said many times, ‘perpetual growth is the creed of the cancer cell’.” It is the combination of high population and high consumption by the rich that is destroying the natural world, he says. Research published by Ehrlich and colleagues in 2017 concluded that this is driving a sixth mass extinction of biodiversity, upon which civilisation depends for clean air, water and food. Yet we also see in the Guardian story the globalists 'solution' for this growing problem of massive overpopulation and overconsumption and it echoes what we see written in granite on the Georgia Guidestones. And while coming close to advocating outright genocide, he speaks many of the globalists 'talking points'. The solutions are tough, he says. “To start, make modern contraception and back-up abortion available to all and give women full equal rights, pay and opportunities with men. “I hope that would lead to a low enough total fertility rate that the needed shrinkage of population would follow. [But] it will take a very long time to humanely reduce total population to a size that is sustainable.” He estimates an optimum global population size at roughly 1.5 to two billion, “But the longer humanity pursues business as usual, the smaller the sustainable society is likely to prove to be. We’re continuously harvesting the low-hanging fruit, for example by driving fisheries stocks to extinction.” (ANP: Keep in mind there are over 7 billion living here now!) Ehrlich is also concerned about chemical pollution, which has already reached the most remote corners of the globe. “The evidence we have is that toxics reduce the intelligence of children, and members of the first heavily influenced generation are now adults.” While the 2016 population for Venezuela was 31 million people, the website Deagel.com forecasts 30 million people to be living there in 2025, an expected population drop off of only 1 million. And as we see in the other economic numbers being forecast for the failed socialist nation, Deagel is forecasting Venezuela will actually be doing a little bit better in 2025 than they are now. Yet with children fighting other children for food now, for Venezuela to fall even further by 2025 would be a complete catastrophe. Yet as we see and hear in the videos below, with the Venezuelan dictator Maduro quite literally using food as a weapon against his own people, much of the catastrophe we're already witnessing there is of their government's making. And as we've reported on ANP time and again, if Deagel's forecast numbers for America are correct, what we're seeing now in socialist Venezuela could be a look at 2025 America with Deagel showing America to be a 3rd world nation in less than 7 years. Forecasting 270 million fewer to be living here by then than were living here in 2016 and showing a forecast economy in complete shambles, should several hundred million Americans one day face the same plight as the people of Venezuela, there will be almost nothing that can stop the coming carnage. And there but for the Amazing Grace of God go we.

'Satan 2' nuclear missile again test-launched by Russia, as Putin brags of 'invulnerable' arsenal

By Greg Norman | Fox News

A new intercontinental ballistic missile hailed by Russian President Vladimir Putin as being able to fly over the North or South Poles and strike any target in the world reportedly was test-launched for the second time Friday. Russia’s defense ministry released a video purportedly showing the Sarmat ICBM blasting off in spectacular fashion from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in its northern Arkhangelsk province, the move coming just hours after the Kremlin announced it would expel 60 American diplomats and close the U.S. consulate in St. Petersburg in retaliation for U.S. measures taken in response to the poisoning of an ex-Russian spy and his daughter in Britain. The video shows the missile – dubbed “Satan 2” by NATO -- rising out of the ground and seemingly floating in the air for a brief moment before more flames erupt, kicking up massive clouds of smoke and snow. "No defense systems will be able to withstand it," Putin said about the missile during his state-of-the-nation speech in early March. The test-launch also comes after Putin’s recent re-election and a congratulatory phone call from President Trump -- in which Trump reportedly also warned his Russian counterpart, "if you want to have an arms race we can do that, but I'll win," according to two officials that spoke to NBC News. Days before the launch, the U.S. Navy test-fired its own ICBM from a ballistic missile submarine off the coast of Southern California. Russia has been working for years to develop a new ICBM to replace the Soviet-designed Voyevoda, the world's heaviest ICBM and known as "Satan" in the West. That ICBM carries 10 nuclear warheads, the Associated Press reported. Putin announced during his March speech the Sarmat missile was undergoing tests and debuted a video purportedly showing its first test launch, which he said happened in December. Putin said Sarmat weighs 220 tons and has a higher range than "Satan," allowing it to fly over both poles of the Earth. He also said it accelerates faster than its predecessor, making it harder for an enemy to intercept it in its most vulnerable phase after the launch. Putin added Sarmat also carries more -- and more powerful -- nuclear warheads than the "Satan" ICBM. Johnny Michael, a Pentagon spokesman, said Friday, “We did not receive any advance notice of this missile-related testing activity. I would defer you to the Russian Ministry of Defense to explain where an ejection test falls in the very early stages of the development of an ICBM missile program, and how far the item in question actually traveled.” Russian state-run news agency TASS has reported the Sarmat missile will go into mass production in 2020 and is expected to become operational the year after, according to EuroNews. "No one has listened to us. You listen to us now,” Putin boasted during the March speech, when he revealed other weapons his country apparently has in the works, such as an underwater drone armed with a nuclear warhead powerful enough to sweep away coastal facilities and aircraft carriers, and a nuclear-powered cruise missile that's "invulnerable to any existing or prospective air and missile defense systems.” The White House responded to Putin’s March 1 speech by saying he merely confirmed what the U.S. already knows: that Russia has been developing "destabilizing weapons systems for over a decade in direct violations of its treaty obligations." White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said President Trump understands the threats and that America is "moving forward to modernize our nuclear arsenal and ensure our capabilities are unmatched." Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White also said the Defense Department wasn't surprised by Putin's bluster, adding the U.S. military is prepared to defend the nation. "You will have to assess that new reality and become convinced that what I said today isn't a bluff," Putin had said. "It's not a bluff, trust me." He said the creation of the new weapons has made NATO's U.S.-led missile defense "useless," putting an end to what he described as years of Western efforts to sidetrack and weaken Russia. "I want to tell all those who have fueled the arms race over the last 15 years, sought to win unilateral advantages over Russia, introduced unlawful restrictions and sanctions aimed to contain our country's development: All what you wanted to impede with your policies has now happened," he said. "You have failed to contain Russia." State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said it was "unfortunate" to watch animation depicting "a nuclear attack on the United States" that accompanied Putin's speech, calling the video "cheesy" and adding "we don't think it's responsible." Another new weapon Putin unveiled during the state-of-the-nation speech, called Avangard, is an intercontinental hypersonic missile that would fly at 20 times the speed of sound and strike its targets "like a meteorite, like a fireball.” The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Leaked Texts Suggest Coordination Between Obama White House, CIA, FBI And Dems To Launch Trump-Russia Probe

by Tyler Durden Thu, 03/29/2018 - 16:55

Congressional investigators looking into the origins of Special Counsel Mueller's Russia probe believe they've found a smoking gun that could justify the appointment of a special counsel to investigate whether the Obama administration exerted undue influence over the FBI. A series of text messages between FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and DOJ lawyer Lisa Page have revealed the involvement of Denis McDonough, Obama's chief of staff, John Brennan, Obama's CIA director, and former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in helping create an atmosphere of paranoia that gave them the political cover to launch the Russia probe back in the summer of 2016. The investigators who leaked the information to Fox said the texts between Strzok and Page "strongly" suggest coordination between the White House, two independent intelligence agencies, and a Democratic Congressional leader. That would "contradict" the Obama administration's claims of non-involvement. The texts tell of former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe being concerned with "information control," and suggest a plot to leak details of the FBI's incipient investigation to both the White House and Reid. Brennan also became involved in agitating for an investigation, though his agency was supposed to be operationally separate from the FBI. Page texted Strzok on Aug. 2, 2016, saying: "Make sure you can lawfully protect what you sign. Just thinking about congress, foia, etc. You probably know better than me." A text message from Strzok to Page on Aug. 3 described former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe as being concerned with "information control" related to the initial investigation into the Trump campaign. According to a report from the New York Times, Brennan was sent to Capitol Hill around the same time to brief members of Congress on the possibility of election interference. Days later, on Aug. 8, 2016, Strzok texted Page: "Internal joint cyber cd intel piece for D, scenesetter for McDonough brief, Trainor [head of FBI cyber division] directed all cyber info be pulled. I’d let Bill and Jim hammer it out first, though it would be best for D to have it before the Wed WH session." In the texts, "D" referred to FBI Director James Comey, and and "McDonough" referred to Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, the GOP investigators said. One of Fox's sources said the information was "concerning" enough to justify launching an independent probe into the FBI's role in launching the Trump investigation. "We are not making conclusions. What we are saying is that the timeline is concerning enough to warrant the appointment of an independent investigator to look at whether or not the Obama White House was involved [in the Trump-Russia investigation]," a GOP congressional source told Fox News. Naturally, coordination between political appointees at the White House and DOJ investigators would cast doubt on the entire Russia probe, Fox's sources said. The following day, Aug. 30, 2016, Strzok texted Page: "Here we go," sending a link to the Times report titled, "Harry Reid Cites Evidence of Russian Tampering in U.S. Vote and seeks FBI inquiry." The texts also detail the Bureau and Brennan's role in feeding information to Reid, which inspired him to write a letter to the FBI demanding an investigation be launched. That letter was later leaked to the press. The Reid letter, Fox said, provided political cover for the bureau when it tried to justify launching an investigation into Trump as early as July 2016. In other words, the FBI was well-versed in how to strategically use "leaks" to manage information control and wash its hands over any potential collusion allegations... with the exception of course of the texts that reveal how the plot was hatched in the first place. The question now is whether McCabe, who was fired two weeks ago, will be called in to testify on these stark allegations. One thing is for certain: The texts provide the clearest sign yet into the Obama administration's role in helping get the Russia probe off the ground in an attempt to roadblock Trump's administration, all the while Obama chose to do nothing about reports of Russian attempts at election interference. We imagine we'll hear more about this in the coming days.

Inspector General Targets Deep State FBI, DOJ Members On FISA Abuse Scandal As New Information Emerges

By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine

There has been significant confusion about the March 28, 2018 announcement by the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General, informing the public that a review has been initiated into the actions of the FBI and DOJ in regards to their Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) applications for surveillance in regards to a "certain U.S. person." The announcement states the following: (Press release, one page PDF) Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz announced today that, in response to requests from the Attorney General and Members of Congress, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) will initiate a review that will examine the Justice Department’s and the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) compliance with legal requirements, and with applicable DOJ and FBI policies and procedures, in applications filed with the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) relating to a certain U.S. person. As part of this examination, the OIG also will review information that was known to the DOJ and the FBI at the time the applications were filed from or about an alleged FBI confidential source. Additionally, the OIG will review the DOJ’s and FBI’s relationship and communications with the alleged source as they relate to the FISC applications. If circumstances warrant, the OIG will consider including other issues that may arise during the course of the review. DOJOIGREVIEWMARCH18.jpg One of the many questions I have seen, showing the confusion, came out as FISA was trending on social media, where a user asked "Ok, forgive me if I'm not up to speed, but I thought the OIG had been investigating the FISA issues for past year. So if it hasn't been FISA keeping him busy for over a year, what else has he been investigating?" The confusion seems to stem from the fact that the DOJ's OIG has been conducting an investigation for more than a year, which is believed to be concluded but the official report hasn't been released to the public yet, although much of what the Inspector General Michael Horowitz had uncovered in the course of his investigation, has seeped into the news, not due to leaks, but because senior level FBI and DOJ employees have been reassigned, been demoted, terminated and removed from Robert Mueller's team, after the IG notified the proper officials of the misdeeds and conflicts of interest he had uncovered. The first investigation, which many observers are waiting to see the finalized OIG report, had specific mandates that are unrelated to the FISA Abuse scandal where senior level officials in the FBI and DOJ used an unverified dossier as a basis to request surveillance on a U.S. citizen, Carter Page, who was once part of the Trump campaign. Congressional investigations have found that those FBI/DOJ officials did not inform the FISC that the dossier was paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC, as well as not informing the FISC the dossier was largely unverified. The original investigation, which uncovered the FISA abuses, had nothing to do with that specific issue, but had five specific mandates the final report is reportedly going to address, shown below: etc.. In the course of multiple congressional investigations into Russian collusion, along with the IG's investigation into the conduct of the FBI and DOJ in relation to the Clinton private server/classified emails criminal investigation (shown above as the first bullet point referencing the dates of the three Comey statements on Hillary Clinton), other information arose during the course of those investigations, that have led to other areas in need of investigating FBI/DOJ misconduct, and to compile documentation so the DOJ has what it needs to determine what, if any, criminal charges need to be filed about the FISA abuses that have been revealed over the last few months. Simply put, in the course of the original investigation into alleged misconduct by the FBI/DOJ in regards to the the Clinton investigation, and former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, evidence came to light showing some of the same players being involved in FISA abuses, some of which has been made public, but that wasn't the original mandate of the OIG's January 12, 2017 announcement of that review. Now a separate OIG investigation has been initiated specifically targeting the FISA abuses. Many would argue that a special counsel should be assigned to this task, but a persuasive counter-argument highlights how much information the OIG has already uncovered and exposed, without which the public would not even know about the FISA abuses, the text messages between Strzok and Page, McCabe's leaking to the press, or the part Bruce and Nellie Ohr played in the dossier fiasco, among other things, to make the case that the IG is uniquely positioned to conduct this new investigation into FISA abuses, rather than wasting tax payer money on someone that would have to start from scratch while building team and to catch up with information IG Horowitz is already very familiar with. WHAT TO EXPECT During the course of congressional testimony, senior officials, such as Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, often invoked the OIG investigation as the proper entity to conduct investigations into misconduct by department employees. Rosenstein told Representative Jim Jordan in December 2017 that the OIG had 500 employees and a $100 million budget, and admitted the text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI Lawyer Lisa Page, which showed that before the 2016 presidential election, they were plotting an "insurance policy," (The Trump/Russia collusion investigation), among other highly suspicious actions, were uncovered during the course of the IG's initial investigation which began on January 12, 2017. With it already being public knowledge that the IG had over 1.2 million documents that he has compiled over the course of the original investigation, those observing and awaiting the final OIG report can expect a number of things once the report is released over the next few weeks. One: Depending on the level of misconduct detailed in the final OIG report, we should be seeing more reassignments, resignations and terminations. Two: The DOJ will be able to move forward on prosecuting anyone the Inspector General has determined acted in the criminal manner. Three: With over 1.2 million documents, hundreds of interviews already conducted for the first IG investigation, many of which already detail issues that "arose during the course of the review," which is now subject to its own investigation, and a huge increase of funding for the next fiscal year for the Office of Inspector General, this one should take a far shorter amount of time to complete. Four: Look for lower level intelligence community employees caught up in the IG investigation to start making deals with prosecutors, immunity for information on higher level officials within the intelligence community, or former members of the Obama administration. NEW INFORMATION COMES TO LIGHT New information has been exposed that shows it is not just the FBI and DOJ that were part of a interagency attempt to sabotage a newly elected president, as more text messages have been uncovered between Peter Strzok, who played key roles in both the Clinton investigation and initiating the Russia probe, and FBI lawyer Lisa Page, which shows that there was collusion and coordination between the CIA, FBI, the Obama White House and Democratic officials. Newly uncovered text messages between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page suggest a possible coordination between high-ranking officials at the Obama White House, CIA, FBI, Justice Department and former Senate Democratic leadership in the early stages of the investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, according to GOP congressional investigators on Wednesday. The investigators say the information provided to Fox News “strongly” suggests coordination between former President Barack Obama’s Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, then-Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid, and CIA Director John Brennan — which they say would “contradict” the Obama administration’s public stance about its hand in the process. The timing of a new report is also interesting as we see that a Minnesota FBI agent has just been charged with leaking classified information to a news website, The Intercept. This is the second person charged with leaking classified information to the same publication. Remember, among the long list of things the DOJ has been investigating, they previously announced they had 27 ongoing leak investigations. LINING THE DUCKS UP IN A ROW At this point many are frustrated at the amount of time these investigations have taken, wondering why we haven't seen more people criminally charged, but the sheer scale of the Obama administration's politicization of multiple intelligence agencies, with the sole goal of creating an issue to undermine a newly elected president, is why the IG has spent over a year on the initial investigation. The twists and turns, the conspiracy, which looks to have encompassed dozens of officials, multiple intelligence agencies, and the former Senate minority leader, all the way up to the White House, is the reason there are over a million documents already compiled for just the first investigation. As The Last Refuse points out, months ago the mainstream media were declaring this type of unprecendent targeting of candidate from the opposing political party by a sitting president and his intelligence community, a "conspiracy theory," and now so much has been uncovered during the course of a supposedly unrelated investigation that it is now front page news. For criminal charges to be filed, it is not good enough to "see" the dots being connected with the publicly available information. DOJ prosecutors, using the IG report, are going to have to connect those dots with actionable evidence, enough evidence to obtain a conviction in a court of law, which is why they are carefully lining their ducks up in a row. Once Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election and all these implicated intelligence community members, current and former, realized that everything they had done, either with the Clinton investigation or the FISA abuses, could be exposed, does anyone really believe that Obama, his admin, or these deep state members, were just going to leave everything out in the open for the Trump appointees to find? BOTTOM LINE The new IG investigation announcement has caused a bit of confusion because many of the scandals involving Strzok, Page, Bruce and Nellie Ohr, Andrew McCabe and others, were revealed during the course of a separate and pre-existing OIG investigation. The fact that IG is officially focusing on the deep state shenanigans in regards to the unverified, Kremlin sourced Steele dossier, which was funded by Hillary Clinton and the DNC, being used without full disclosure to the FISC, to fraudulently obtain FISA warrants to surveil a member of the Trump campaign, brings us one step closer to seeing all their dirty laundry exposed to the light of day.

American service member is among the 2 dead in Syria bombing, officials say

An American was identified Friday as one of the two coalition troops killed yesterday by a roadside bomb in Syria, marking the first time this year a U.S. service member has been killed in action in the war-torn country, two U.S. officials told Fox News. It’s not immediately clear about the nationalities of the others killed and wounded. A statement from the U.S.-led coalition did not identify the exact location of the blast. A Syrian official had told The Associated Press earlier that a roadside bomb exploded in the mixed Arab-Kurdish town of Manbij. Mohammed Abu Adel, the head of the Manbij Military Council, an Arab-Kurdish US.-backed group in the town, said the bomb went off hundreds of yards away from a security headquarters that houses the council just before midnight on Thursday. The wounded personnel received immediate care and are being evacuated for further medical treatment. The names of the deceased will be released at the discretion of the pertinent national authorities. “The names of the deceased will be released at the discretion of the pertinent national authorities,” the statement read. The Associated Press and Fox News’ Lucas Tomlinson contributed to this report.

Venezuela fire: Relatives want answers after 68 die

29 March 2018

Relatives of 68 people who died when a fire broke out at a police station in the Venezuelan city of Valencia have demanded answers as to what happened. The blaze reportedly started after prisoners set fire to mattresses in an attempt to break out on Wednesday. The United Nations has called on the Venezuelan authorities to carry out a speedy investigation and to provide reparations to victims' families. The fire is one of the deadliest incidents in Venezuela's prisons. The office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights said in a statement that "where applicable" those responsible should be brought to justice. On Wednesday, anguished relatives had gathered in front of the police station demanding information about their loved ones. They were dispersed by police firing tear gas. Chief prosecutor Tarek William Saab said 66 men and two women, who had been visiting the cells overnight, were killed in the blaze. He also said that an investigation would be launched "immediately". Venezuela's worst prison tragedies: August 2017: A riot in police holding cells leaves 37 dead in Amazonas state March 2017: 14 bodies are found in a mass grave in a jail in Guarico state September 2015: A blaze in a prison in Tocuyito prison kills 17 January 2013: More than 60 inmates are killed in a prison riot in Barquisimeto What happened at the police station? The circumstances surrounding the fire have not been officially confirmed. The association Una Ventana a la Libertad (A Window on Freedom), which monitors jail conditions, said its reports showed a police officer had been shot in the leg by a detainee and that shortly afterwards mattresses in cells were set ablaze and the fire quickly spread. Mr Santander did confirm one police officer had been shot. Rescuers reportedly broke through walls to try to free those trapped by the blaze. Nearly all of those who died were inmates but at least two women who were visiting at the time were also killed, Mr Saab said. Some of the victims burned to death, others died of smoke inhalation. What has the response been? Angry relatives gathered outside the detention centre and clashed with police as they sought information about loved ones. Aida Parra, who said she had last seen her son the day before, told the Associated Press news agency: "I don't know if my son is dead or alive. They haven't told me anything." Dora Blanco told local media: "I am a desperate mother. My son has been here a week. They have not given any information." The government has set up an inquiry. Carabobo state governor Rafael Lacava expressed his condolences, adding: "A serious and profound investigation has been initiated to find the causes and those responsible for these regrettable events." What's the state of Venezuela's penal system? Facilities are notoriously overcrowded, with violence and deadly riots common. The country has struggled to accommodate its prisoners amid an ongoing economic crisis, leading to the use of temporary facilities such as the one in Valencia. 'De facto prisons' By Daniel García Marco, BBC Mundo, Caracas Many police stations in Venezuela are being used as de facto prisons. Their holding cells were built for 30 to 40 people but often hundreds are crammed inside awaiting trial or transfer to a proper jail. Detainees can sometimes spend years there. When I visited such a police station several months ago in Caracas, I saw dozens of men sharing a very small cell. Their relatives came twice a day to deliver them some food which the prisoners shared among themselves. Carlos Nieto of Una Ventana a la Libertad says that about 45,000 people are currently locked up in 500 police stations across the country. He says that a disaster like the one that happened in Valencia could "happen anytime, anywhere and [the next one] could even be worse". Inmates are supposed to be held for only 48 hours in police holding cells. Una Ventana a la Libertad says some police facilities are overfilled at five times their capacity. The organisation says that 65 people died last year in temporary cells due to violence, disease or malnutrition. Last month inmates at a different prison in Carabobo took a number of prisoners and guards hostage in another riot.

Ecuador cuts off Assange's outside communication

By Josh Delk - 03/28/18 01:43 PM EDT

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been cut off from accessing the internet inside London's Ecuadorian Embassy, where he has lived for over five years to avoid extradition. The Ecuadorian government said the embassy took the step in response to Assange's recent activity on social media, which it said violated his agreement not to interfere in the nation's relations with other countries. “The government of Ecuador warns that Assange’s behavior, through his messages on social networks, put at risk the country’s good relations with the United Kingdom, the other states of the European Union, and other nations,” a statement from the government says, the Guardian reported on Wednesday. Assange previously had his internet privileges suspended at the embassy over the site's release of hacked Democratic National Committee emails during the 2016 election. The U.S. intelligence community implicated WikiLeaks in Russia's efforts to meddle in the 2016 election, indicating "with high confidence" that the group got the hacked emails from the Kremlin. As of January, Assange is officially a citizen of the South American country. He was first offered asylum in the embassy by Ecuador's former President Rafael Correa. Assange's asylum prevented his extradition by British authorities to Sweden to answer for claims of sexual assault. Those charges against the WikiLeaks founder have been dropped, but he remains subject to arrest in the U.K. for skipping bail. He could also face potential charges in the U.S. over the publication of sensitive military intelligence first leaked by Chelsea Manning.

Huge 6.9 magnitude earthquake strikes off the coast Papua New Guinea

A 6.9 magnitude earthquake hit just off the coast of Papua New Guinea

Despite no immediate reports of casualties or damage, people fled buildings

Just weeks ago, at least 100 were killed and villages were buried after 7.5 quake

By Hannah Moore For Daily Mail Australia Published: 20:56 EDT, 29 March 2018 | Updated: 10:32 EDT, 30 March 2018

A 6.9 magnitude earthquake has struck off the coast of Papua New Guinea, triggering a tsunami warning for nearby coastlines. The quake struck at a depth of 10km, about 162 kilometres from the town of Rabaul on New Britain Island, about 7.25am on Friday. There have been no immediate reports of damage or casualties, though one hotel worker told Reuters her guests ran out of the building in fright. The tsunami warning was later called off. Little more than a month ago, the country suffered a lethal 7.5 magnitude earthquake. At least 100 people in the Enga province died in the quake on February 26, and massive landslides saw entire villages buried. The townspeople spent weeks trying to determine the damage caused by the quake, and are still struggling to get aid to the most remote and worst affected areas. Water supplies also took a hit on the country's main island after they were damaged by the tremors. Papua New Guinea is no stranger to earthquakes, as it sits on the 'ring of fire' in the Pacific Ocean. The Ring of Fire forms a horse-shoe shape and affects more than a dozen counties. About 90 per cent of the world's earthquakes, and 81 per cent of the largest earthquakes occur in this area. More to come.  Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5560927/Huge-6-6-magnitude-earthquake-strikes-coast-Papua-New-Guinea.html#ixzz5BL3tB8nk

Read Omnibus Bill- Surprising Little Nuggets Hidden In Mammoth Bill As President Trump Announces 'Build WALL Through Military'

- The Wall Is Now A Matter Of 'National Defense'

By Susan Duclos - All News Pipeline March 25, 2018

The one thing that liberals celebrating the 2,200+ Omnibus Bill just passed and signed by President Trump have in common with unhappy Trump supporters, is that no one celebrating or complaining has actually read the mammoth bill. It is bad, make no mistake, but the claims the mainstream media has managed to program into the minds of the public are also very misleading. The entire Omnibus bill is embedded at the bottom of the article, but we will be addressing some specific points from it below. OMNIBUS BILLS VERSUS FEDERAL BUDGET A federal budget is an itemized plan for the annual public expenditures of the United States, Via Investopedia: "Expenses made under the budget are classified as either mandatory or discretionary spending. Mandatory spending is stipulated by law and includes entitlement programs such as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Such expenses are also known as permanent appropriations. Discretionary spending is spending which must be approved by individual appropriations bills...." Since 2009 Congress has appropriated funds to keep the government open with Continuing Resolutions and Omnibus bills rather than proper federal budget legislation. An Omnibus bill provides all discretionary funding for all of the 12 annual Appropriations bills that are required to fund the government, wrapping them all into one mammoth bill, while throwing in "pork," as backroom wheeling and dealing for votes for special pet projects and funding continues to be the subject of justified criticism. An Appropriation bill authorizes the expenditure of government funds and sets money aside for specific spending, with instructions/suggestions on how the money is to be spent, but actual distribution (spending the money congress appropriated) is done by the administration. APPROPRIATIONS AND PRESIDENTIAL SPENDING POWER Cited by Encyclopedia.com , Louis Fisher succinctly explains the process in the most understandable terms, stating "On the basis of the Constitution and traditional legislative prerogatives, Congress lays claim to exclusive control over the purse. Nevertheless, while it is up to Congress to appropriate funds, it is also true that the President and the executive branch enjoy considerable discretion as to how those funds are spent. Examples from both the Obama administration and the Trump administration clearly shows that despite Congressional "instruction" or suggestions, presidents enjoy considerable flexibility in interpreting those instructions. For example, in the Omnibus bill for 2012, when Congress attempted to block funds from being used to "advocate or promote gun control," he would not "construe these provisions as preventing me from fulfilling my constitutional responsibility to recommend to the Congress's consideration such measures as I shall judge necessary and expedient." Congress also attempted to bar Obama from using taxpayer dollars to pay for "salaries and expenses," of Obama's White House czars, to which Obama said could prevent him from "fulfilling my constitutional responsibilities, by denying me the assistance of senior advisers and by obstructing my supervision of executive branch officials in the execution of their statutory responsibilities." Obama then asserted "I have informed the Congress that I will interpret these provisions consistent with my constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed." (Source - The Hill, December 2011) Another example of presidential flexibility comes from August 2017 reports showing that despite Congress allocating funds for the State Department, some $80 billion, the Trump administration simply didn't "spend it," causing Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to complain "We've seen just too many instances these past few months ... where there is clear congressional intent and funds provided, yet an unwillingness or inability to act." Politico reported at the time that funds allocated by Congress for the Norwegian Refugee Council USA, which works with Population, Refugees and Migration bureau at the State Department and the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance at USAID, was complaining they thought the Trump administration was slowing down the "disbursements of money." In the new Omnibus bill one of the small details that has largely been left out of the conversation is a portion of the bill that provides "cross agency funding flexibility." The omnibus also gives agencies some flexibility to transfer unused funds to use for broad, governmentwide initiatives. Specifically, the budget lets agency heads transfer or reimburse the General Services Administration any funds made available during the fiscal year or rebates from charge cards and other contracts to use in support of governmentwide IT modernization, procurement or financial projects, or management initiatives. Agencies must get approval from the Office of Management and Budget. GSA will administer the transfer. They’ll work with inter-agency organizations, such as the President’s Management Council, Chief Information Officers Council and Chief Human Capital Officers Council. Total funds for improving inter-agency coordination or reducing duplication can’t exceed $15 million, while total funds for government priority goals can’t exceed $17 million, the omnibus said. Congress has 15 days to reject these transfers. Otherwise, agencies can move forward with these transactions on their own. ADDRESSING SPECIFIC ITEMS Planned Parenthood: One of the most controversial items contained within the new Omnibus bill is the funding for Planned Parenthood, which is the largest abortion provider in the nation, but which also provides other services to low income areas. Abortion funding is specifically addressed in section 810, Page 639, where it states the following: SEC. 810. No funds available for obligation or expenditure by the District of Columbia government under any authority shall be expended for any abortion except where the life of the mother would be endangered if the fetus were carried to term or where the pregnancy is the result of an act of rape or incest. The Wall: Another complaint seen quite a bit across the internet is the claim that the border wall is not funded, but a look at provisions within the bill, in conjunction with President Trump's statement announcing his signature on the OmniBus bill, shows that the funds are there, and legally can be used to fund the entire wall, if Trump chooses to do so. In President Trump's statement, he included some very specific terminology in relation to the border wall, saying "I want to address the situation on border security, which I call national defense. I call it stopping drugs from pouring across our border. And I call it illegal immigration. It’s all of those things. But national defense is a very important two words, because by having a strong border system, including a wall, we are in a position militarily that is very advantageous......." CNN called it "odd" and "bizarro," but what Trump did was tie "the wall" in to "national defense," putting it directly under the Department of Defense (DoD) umbrella. The DoD itself received nearly $655 billion in the OmniBus bill, which has been touted in the mainstream media, but what hasn't been focused on is that the DoD was also given more "flexibility" and expanded the DoD’s reprogramming authority, where they can move funds from one account to another, with larger amounts being subject to congressional approval. One of the federal agencies that fall under the DoD is the Army Corps of Engineers, which includes approximately 37,000 civilians and military personnel, considered one of the "world's largest public engineering, design, and construction management agencies," as described by www.army.mil. In July 2017, the Army Corps of Engineers reportedly had already "begun preliminary preparations for the construction of segments of a wall in several places along the border with Mexico, According to NYT (Archive is link here), showing they were involved in the process. While President Trump's statement specifically highlighting the border wall as part of his "national defense" strategy, caused considerable chatter and speculation that he would use a portion of the DoD funding to build the wall, which is estimated to cost approximately $25 billion to complete, his statement on Sunday, pretty much turns that speculation into stated intent. Trump tweeted on March 25, 2018: "Because of the $700 & $716 Billion Dollars gotten to rebuild our Military, many jobs are created and our Military is again rich. Building a great Border Wall, with drugs (poison) and enemy combatants pouring into our Country, is all about National Defense. Build WALL through M!" So, while Democrats were dancing a little jig about only providing $1.6 billion for wall construction and limiting what those funds could be used for, specifically barring any of that $1.6 billion from building concrete barrier or construction of any of the wall prototypes President Trump has been considering , in the name of "national defense" the wall has just become part of military strategy to prevent "enemy combatants," from entering the United States. OIG FUNDED TO THE GILLS IN OMNIBUS As Stefan Stanford touched on in a previous article, the Office of Inspector General also saw a huge increase in funding, mentioned on pages 571, 573, 578, and 581, to the tune of nearly $300 million for a variety of functions, which may or may not indicate that the Inspector Generals across the nations federal agencies are expected to be very busy in 2018. Related: As Investigations Of Misconduct Mount, Can Hillary Clinton Avoid Jail? The DOJ OIG has spent over a year investigating the actions of the FBI/DOJ actions in the run up to the 2016 presidential election, with Inspector General Michael Horowitz expected to issue his final report within weeks, which is what multiple agency heads have publicly testified to be waiting for in order to determine if criminal charges needed to be filed. The IG investigation has already caused the termination, resignations, and reassignments of nearly a dozen senior level intelligence community employees. BOTTOM LINE Readers are encouraged to weed through the Omnibus bill embedded below and highlight portions they think are noteworthy in the comment section. While no one is calling this a "good" piece of legislation, there are hidden nuggets that promote and further the Trump agenda, and complaints, criticisms and praise is always more noteworthy when it comes after people inform themselves by reading the actual bill, rather than just going by what the media chooses to highlight. One thing we should all remember is that the media has set themselves up as an "opposition" party to President Trump and it has been their main goal for the last two years to turn Trump supporters against him and cause infighting among them, which is why much of the "good" contained within the bill, things Trump supporters would like, is not being reported by the MSM. Highlights of the omnibus bill can be found at the Committee Of Appropriations website.

Omnibus Bill: Trump Outsmarted The Deep State Again – The Wall is Being Built

March 26, 2018 Kelleigh Nelso

Republicans control the government, yet Congress still follows the Democrats’ playbook. Time and again, spending skyrockets, and conservatives are expected to fall in line to praise the party for making the big-spending status quo worse.Rand Paul Initial Reactions A caller into Rush Limbaugh’s show said he’d become a Never Trumper when Cruz dropped out, but a democrat neighbor, and his entire family told him Hillary was dangerous, vote for Trump. He said he’s not devastated by what President Trump signed, and that he had a lot of room left on his rope before he’d give up on President Trump. He said, “I was challenged, now I’m going to put that same challenge back out there to you. Stay with President Trump.” The majority of calls to Limbaugh were full of anger, disbelief and despair. The people felt betrayed. One caller said he was a democrat who voted for Trump. He wants Obamacare repealed, the border wall built and refugee and illegal immigration stopped. “The only one who can separate Trump voters from Trump is Trump, and he did it today,” said another. This budget was designed to end the Trump presidency and play right into the hands of the Deep State who hate him. But did it? This was a spending bill, not a budget bill. There is a difference, and Trump knows it! Omnibus v Budget Before everyone jumps off the Trump train over the spending bill, there are a few things you should know. From the beginnings of American history, lump sum appropriations have been a source of contention. Jeffersonian Republicans wanted legal restraints, while the Federalists wanted Executive discretion. We have today a mix of both: mandatory spending and discretionary spending. So, does the President have the ability to use the funds as he chooses? Yes, to a point. President Trump was not happy with the Omnibus Spending Bill of 2018 and voiced his displeasure up until he actually signed it at the last minute. He can’t take money from the Jordan Wall, for example to make his own wall, depending on where those monies are appropriated. But within the budget there are likely places where he can adjust the way the monies are spent, and that includes the military building the wall. Link Presidents can use their influence over any items that have been appropriated, depending on the agencies involved. Obama used his to influence spending in agencies that were advancing his agenda. In short, there is little information to tell us how appropriated money is actually spent, and in eight years we never found out what Obama did with the monies in his Omnibus bills, did we?! Link Congressional Betrayal Again All our President had to do to rally the American people who love and support him, was to veto the Omnibus bill and tell Congress to go back and rewrite it. His supporters would have been energized, they would have rallied for him and he could have filled the Congress with new conservative blood in November. But Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell stabbed Trump in the back this week, by giving Schumer and Pelosi everything they wanted. My initial reaction was outrage… People were asking me why the hell Trump didn’t send this pile of bull dung back to the Congress and shut down the government. We all emailed him and called the White House and said, “Veto this filthy thing.” Why didn’t he take this to the people? Why didn’t he talk to us? Why didn’t he listen to what we said? Why did he cave to Schumer and Pelosi? Why did he give McConnell and Ryan (neo-con Trotskyites) the satisfaction of signing this garbage? And don’t give me that old line of crap that he was threatened or his family was threatened, he knew taking this job was a big responsibility and could be dangerous. He could put his family in hiding, so get off that bandwagon. Watch his speech to the American people and look at his lack of exuberance regarding the promotion of this horrid bill. He hated it. The President’s Words Before you read my initial responses to this bill, watch this two minute video where Budget Director Mick Mulvaney gives us the facts. Trump needed nine Democrats to vote for the bill in order to get what he wanted, and the result is national security and restoring the military. Our military has been so decimated by eight years of Obama, putting us way behind both Russia and China. Trump had to have every dime, and had he vetoed this bill, the Congress would have cut defense spending, and that money could build the wall. The President said, “There are a lot of things that I’m unhappy about in this bill. There are a lot of things that we shouldn’t have had in this bill but we were in a sense forced if we want to build our military, we were forced to have.” Really Mr. President, why were you forced to sign this when you know you could have shoved it back in the face of the Congress and said, “NO!” You weren’t forced to do anything. “There are some things that we should have in the bill. But I say to Congress, I will never sign another bill like this again. I’m not gonna do it again. Nobody read it. It’s only hours old. Some people don’t even know — $1.3 trillion. It’s the second largest ever.” Again Mr. President, why did you sign something that is anathema to the campaign promises you made to your supporters? And why would you sign something none of your staff has even read. Let the government shut down before you sign a piece of legislation from the socialist democrats and the false friends on the right. “But in this case, it became so big because we need to take care of our military. And because the Democrats, who don’t believe in that, added things that they wanted in order to get their votes. We have to get rid of the filibuster rule and go to 51 votes in the Senate if we’re going to have really sustained, continued success.” Harry Reid got rid of the filibuster rule for the Dems, but haven’t you figured out yet that Senator McConnell isn’t there to help you even though you gave his wife, Elaine Chao the position of Transportation Secretary to butter up McConnell? And our active military got only a 2.4% raise, biggest since 2010. The Congress gets a 10% raise every year unless they vote against it. Yes, we do need a strong military, and decent pay for our soldiers. “DACA recipients have been treated extremely badly by the Democrats. We wanted to include DACA in this bill. We wanted to have ’em in this bill, 800,000 people, and actually it could even be more. The Democrats would not do it. They would not do it. To prevent the omnibus situation from ever happening again, I’m calling on Congress to give me a line-item veto for all government spending bills, and the Senate must end, they must end the filibuster rule and get down to work.” They’ll never give you a line item veto because they hate you and everything you stand for. And now your supporters feel abandoned and that you allowed the socialist left and the false friends on the right to dictate their demands in a budget bill that should have been loudly defeated and destroyed by you, the man we trust to Make America Great Again. DACA? Are you totally out of touch with the people who supported and elected you? Where the hell are you getting the idea that we want the DACA people to be amnestied? Do you have any idea of the cost of DACA’s to the American taxpayers? We do not want a deal on DACA, we know the criminality within this group and what it has already cost us. I will never sign a bill like this again. You shouldn’t have signed it to begin with Mr. President, but I understand why you had to. Check out the bill if you have time to wade through over 2,200 pages, which obviously wasn’t done by congress or the administration. Rand Paul voted against this monstrosity and he went through sections of it and tweeted parts of it. Ann Coulter immediately threw Trump under the bus forgetting that this rot was the product of the schemes of Ryan, McConnell, Pelosi and Schumer, all of whom are brothers in arms against our President. Ann may be right that Trump will never get another bill to sign because the Congress made it plain to the people that they don’t want to have a republican majority and they detest everything the President campaigned on. We need some new blood in the 34 vacated republican seats, true conservative blood. Put aside misplaced anger and help us get true conservatives in Congress. This is the key to getting rid of these greedy globalists who love personal enrichment more than our country. The Budget On Judge Jeanine’s show, Ann Coulter suggested Trump build the wall via the Seabees and take the monies from defense spending. Instead, let’s use the funds seized from drug cartels to build a grand wall! Rush Limbaugh stated, “This budget not only doesn’t fund his agenda, this budget makes it practically impossible for his agenda to be implemented, particularly on the primary thing that got him elected, which is dealing with the border and illegal immigration. Stop thinking of Congress as Republicans and Democrats. You’ve got to think of that as one unified group of people, establishmentarians who are working in a coordinated way to thwart and nullify the election and agenda of the Trump presidency.” But Rush, that’s under a budget bill, not a spending bill. Limbaugh explained some of what is in this monstrosity. It’s well worth the read, but remember Congress wrote this filth, and it is not a budget. Congress and Broken Promises Planned Parenthood receives approximately $500 million in taxpayer funding every year through Medicaid and Title X grants for family planning. The Omnibus Bill continues their funding. Sanctuary cities which are democratic strongholds will keep their funding. The bill denies President Donald Trump explicit authority to withhold federal grants from the Democratic-dominated “sanctuary cities” which are trying to secede from the nation’s immigration laws. Under a spending bill, Trump can slow walk these monies for things he wants in exchange. Schumer’s Gateway Project Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s Gateway Project, a massive tunnel, bridge, and infrastructure expansion project linking passenger rail service between Newark, NJ, and New York City, NY over President Trump’s southern border wall is in the current omnibus spending bill. As Paul Gosar (R-AZ) explains in this very important Breitbart article, this tunnel is an earmark. “This is an infrastructure process that should go through regular order. It shouldn’t be part of an omnibus bill. The American people spoke out loud and clear about a border wall.” New York and New Jersey aren’t even putting up any money on this. “National priorities such as funding for a southern border wall are being subverted by less important projects,” said Gosar. “This is nothing different than prioritizing earmarks. That’s strictly what’s going on here, is that it’s a negotiation with the Democrats.” “It’s a crap sandwich. The American public lost, and the Republican mantra lost. Why don’t we stand up, grow a spine, and negotiate, and make sure that we get something for something because that’s what the American people put us here for.” Again, Trump can hold this money hostage as leverage for his agenda. Build the Wall Like Rep. Gosar explained, border security was another campaign promise, and this bill screws us over big time. Neither party wants the wall. Why? Because most of them are globalists who want borders eliminated and our sovereignty destroyed. This budget “specifies that none of the budget and none of the construction may resemble the wall prototypes that the Border Patrol has been testing for the past few months.” The budget put together by the Republicans in the House of Representatives specifically states that whatever limited funds are used on fencing for 33 miles in Texas cannot “resemble” anything to do with “the border wall prototypes” that Trump went out and looked at the other day. Conclusion How many of you have heard that two Trump owned helicopters have crashed in the last nine months with Trump family members aboard? The enemies of freedom really don’t want this President or his family anywhere near our White House. They’ll do anything to destroy his presidency. The anger we all initially felt needs to be transferred to where it belongs, on our Congressional leaders, McConnell, Ryan, Schumer and Pelosi. And yes, I was angry when Trump signed this monstrosity because of the rot within it from the Congress and how little Trump received from his republican majority, and the likes of smirking Ryan and McConnell. I have had the weekend to think it through. So, what do we want? Do we want to kick Trump to the curb and go back to Obama, the Clintons, the Bushes or worse? Ais upset as we are over this bill, and as much as we wanted it vetoed, there is still no one better than Donald J. Trump as our President, and he has some discretionary funding! MAGA with Trump is our only hope. Pick up a copy of Ed Martin’s latest book, Can’t Trump This 2017 and remind yourself of what Trump saved us from in just his first year, including no Hillary! We have to get rid of the rot in Congress, and that means we have to fund and vote for true conservatives in our primaries. Kick the incumbents out, vote for no Democrats.

ROBOT WARS Russia could use robots to poison food for ‘untraceable’ AI assassinations in ‘chilling new Cold War’

Technology that hacks into a meal ordering system before tampering with the food could become a weapon of a Cold War future, says top computer science professor

By Nicola Stow 26th March 2018, 10:50 am Updated: 26th March 2018, 1:53 pm

RUSSIA could use robots to poison food for “untraceable” assassinations of state exiles, an expert has warned. Computer science professor Dr Jeremy Straub said technology that hacks into a meal-ordering system before tampering with the food could become a weapon of a “Cold War future”. Army officers remove the bench where Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found in Salisbury. Future attacks could be 'untraceable', it's claimed The Kremlin and Britain are locked in a vicious stand-off after the poisoning of an ex-Russian spy with a nerve gas. Prime Minister Theresa May has pointed the finger of blame at Putin’s Russia for the attack on Sergei Skripal, 66, and his daughter, Yulia, 33. And future attacks on Russian exiles could be untraceable because of artificial intelligence, Dr Straub told the Daily Star Online. He said: “Certainly when you think about a robot, that (assassinating a target) would be something that a robot certainly could do. Dr Jeremy Straub said technology that hacks into a meal-ordering system before tampering with the food could become a weapon of a 'Cold War future' "But I think you'd see something far more subtle to the kind of approach that a human might use, where an AI might order something with an incorrect component. "For example, if it knew somebody had an allergy, perhaps it would get them some food with an allergy where it appears to be a kind of benign mistake, where in actuality it might be intentional. "That would be my guess as to the tactic taking place. In the US when you go into McDonald's there are these kiosks, where you can order food. Dr Straub said he believes Russia is heading towards a new Cold War, led by its use of AI. Russian President Vladimir Putin. Kremlin and Britain are locked in a vicious stand-off after the poisoning of Skripal and his daughter Yulia Prime Minister Theresa May has pointed the finger of blame at Putin’s Russia for the attack He explained: "Based upon what Putin has said it seems like that would be a strategy that Russia would use to the extent that they have the technology available. "Really the question there is what technologies does Russia have, ready at that time? "They are talking about developing it, but it's unclear if they have that stuff on the shelf. "I think certainly if they were to enter a Cold War, and fighting, they would use the technologies at their disposal and AI would certainly be a very strong technology for them to use." He added: "Russians have talked a lot about using AI and one quote, Putin said he saw AI as an equaliser between the US and Russia. "How he was basically going to overcome the US's order of magnitude of more defence spending using AI. "I think he certainly is looking for ways to use the technology now, whether any particular attack type would be employed is an open question.” Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, are still being treated in hospital, where they are both seriously ill.

US trade report lays bare Chinese government cyber-espionage

Report charges Chinese attacks service strategic objectives that are aligned with national industrial policies. Plausible deniability is maintained

By Bill Gertz March 26, 2018 10:55 AM (UTC+8)

China’s government is engaged in a systematic program of cyber attacks on American and foreign companies, according to a US government trade report made public last week. The cyber intrusions into corporate networks are one of four areas identified by the office of the US Trade Representative as unfair trading practices. These have prompted the administration of US President Donald Trump to impose tariffs on Chinese products in the coming weeks. The other areas outlined in the USTR report include restrictions on businesses operating in China designed to induce technology transfers, and systematic acquisitions of technology companies to obtain advanced commercial know-how. The report is the result of a special USTR investigation initiated last August. American officials say that in response to China’s unfair practices the Trump administration will seek to narrow the trade deficit between the countries by imposing tariffs on up to US$60 billion worth of still-to-be-identified Chinese goods. “It’s a very conservative estimate of harm, because it does not include one of the other four points of the USTR compass, which is the cyber theft,” said Peter Navarro, White House director for trade and industrial policy and a key architect of the new tariffs. He added: “Estimates of the losses of cyber theft alone are in the hundreds of billions of dollars.” On cyber attacks, the 215-page report states that for over a decade “the Chinese government has conducted and supported cyber intrusions into US commercial networks targeting confidential business information held by US firms.” It adds that: “Through these cyber intrusions, China’s government has gained unauthorized access to a wide range of commercially-valuable business information, including trade secrets, technical data, negotiating positions, and sensitive and proprietary internal communications.” The report concludes that the cyber intrusions and information exfiltration poses “a grave threat” to the economy and competitiveness of the US. This is the first time the US government has called out the Chinese government for its cyber activities, despite intrusions that have grown in scale and sophistication since at least 2008. The report charges Chinese cyber attacks service strategic objectives that are aligned with national industrial policies. As part of its overall strategy, the Chinese government denies any role in the attacks. “As the global economy has increased its dependence on information systems in recent years, cyber theft became one of China’s preferred methods of collecting commercial information because of its logistical advantages and plausible deniability,” the report says. The Chinese cyber thefts have continued despite an agreement reached in 2015 between Chinese President Xi Jinping and US President Barack Obama to curtail government-sponsored cyber espionage. The report concludes that in contravention of the agreement “the evidence indicates that China continues its policy and practice, spanning more than a decade, of using cyber intrusions to target US firms to access their sensitive commercial information and trade secrets.” Chinese cyber targeting has included harvesting sensitive corporate secrets from oil and gas companies. China’s military, the People’s Liberation Army, is aggressively engaged in the cyber economic espionage effort. For example, the PLA’s General Staff Third Department, known as 3PLA, operates Unit 61398, which was first revealed in 2013 as a major cyber information collector. The secret unit, located in an office building in Shanghai, is staffed by hundreds or perhaps thousands of cyber technicians. The report notes that several private security companies have linked China to most of the thousands of cyber intrusions detected annually. 3PLA, for example, is linked to data stolen from at least 141 organizations around the world in 20 different business sectors, including aerospace, information technology, and satellites and telecommunications. The report for the first time identifies five Chinese hackers indicted by a US federal grand jury in May 2014 as having been part of 3PLA’s Second Bureau, which directs Unit 61398. One of their targets was the computer networks of Westinghouse Electric Company, which were hit by major cyber attacks that netted 3PLA 1.4 gigabytes of data – around 700,000 pages of email messages and attachments. The data included trade secrets, technical and design specifications and sensitive emails from senior company officials. The report notes that during the period of the thefts – December 2010 to January 2011 – Westinghouse was building four of its AP1000 power plants in China and was negotiating terms for construction, including making technology transfers to China’s State Nuclear Power Technology Corporation (SNPTC). “At the same time, a 3PLA actor stole confidential and proprietary technical and design specifications for pipes, pipe supports, and pipe routing within the AP1000 plant buildings,” the report says. “The stolen trade secrets and technical information would permit a competitor to build a power plant without having to invest in associated research and development costs that had been borne by Westinghouse in the past.” Moreover, at the same time in 2010 and 2011 that Westinghouse was conducting other business ventures with SNPTC, a 3PLA cyber attacker stole sensitive e-mails from senior officials at Westinghouse who were engaged in talks with the Chinese nuclear power entity. The decision-makers were responsible for the company’s business relationship with SNPTC. In January 2011, as 3PLA was infiltrating Westinghouse’s servers and exfiltrating its information, Westinghouse announced the signing of two agreements with SNPTC, the report notes. The use of 3PLA for economic cyber espionage is part of what the report says is a policy of “military-civil fusion” programs that involve China sharing resources between science and technology entities and the PLA. “Indeed, the US government has evidence that the Chinese government provides competitive intelligence through cyber intrusions to Chinese state-owned enterprises through a process that includes a formal request and feedback loop, as well as a mechanism for information exchange via a classified communication system,” the report says. An example is the China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC), a state-owned enterprise that tasked Chinese intelligence services with collecting intelligence on several US oil and gas companies and on US shale gas technology. This tasking was detected in January 2012 during commercial negotiations between a US company, CNOOC and China’s Ministry of Agriculture, regarding oil leaks that had occurred at a facility jointly owned and operated by the company and CNOOC in June 2011. According to the report, Chinese intelligence provided CNOOC with information ahead of and during the talks with the US company, including internal company information on the company’s negotiating position. The PLA-CNOOC intelligence sharing was approved by Maj. Gen. Liu Xiaobei, 3PLA’s political commissar, the report says. In a second case, 3PLA operatives provided CNOOC with information on five American oil and gas companies, including data on company operations, development of shale gas technology and lab procedures, fracking technology and fracking formulae. A recent case of Chinese cyber espionage involved a front company posing as a cyber security firm called the Guangzhou Bo Yu Information Technology Co. Ltd., or Boyusec. Three Chinese nationals from Boyusec were indicted for cyber thefts against American companies, including Moody’s Analytics, Siemens AG, and Trimble Inc. Boyusec has been linked by US intelligence agencies to the Ministry of State Security, China’s civilian intelligence services. The trade report rejects the claims of critics who say American cyber practices are similar to those of 3PLA and the MSS. “China’s cyber intrusions are unique from those of Western market economies because the intrusions occur within the framework of China’s extensive state-driven economic development model, which has no parallel in Western market economies,” the report says. The report concludes that “Beijing’s cyberespionage against US companies persists and continues to evolve.” “The US Intelligence Community judges that Chinese state-sponsored cyber operators continue to support Beijing’s strategic development goals, including its S&T advancement, military modernization, and economic development,” the report says.

What Was the 'Crime' of Jesus That Got Him Crucified?

By Jerry Newcombe , CP Op-Ed Contributor | Mar 25, 2018 8:05 AM

Another Holy Week is upon us, beginning with Palm Sunday and culminating with Easter Sunday. It was "the week that changed the world." The week began in a humble, triumphant sort of way. That may seem like an oxymoron. Jesus was hailed as a king, but rode in on a donkey---a humble way to begin His public entry into Jerusalem. Of course, He was fulfilling what Zechariah the prophet had foretold about 700 years before. Dr. Paul L. Maier is a professor of ancient history emeritus from Western Michigan University. He is a terrific scholar on all things related to Jesus and the Gospels. In his 1997 book, In the Fullness of Time, Maier writes of Jesus' entry into the Holy City on the eve of the Passover on that very first Palm Sunday: the donkey "was the common beast of burden of the time, in contrast to the superior horse of gilded chariot used in Roman triumphs." The city was bustling and filled with people. Dr. D. James Kennedy notes this: "Josephus tells us that there were over three million pilgrims that visited the city on this occasion. 256,000 lambs were slain for the Passover." Of course, the climax of Jesus' entry was His death (on Passover) and resurrection. Why was Jesus crucified? What crime did He allegedly commit? Crucifixion was a horrible way to die. It was so bad that no Roman citizen could be crucified. It was an execution reserved for slaves and bandits. How amazing then that the Son of God become man would allow Himself to be so degraded by people whom He Himself had created. Crucifixion was invented in the Near East and perfected by the Romans. It was not uncommon for a crucified victim to suffer for days. Pontius Pilate was surprised Jesus had died in only a few hours---however, He had been scourged so horribly that He could have bled to death, had He been released after the whipping. The crucified victim had the crime he committed posted above his head. Crucifixion was like a living billboard---do what this fellow did and you too could end up like this. In the case of Jesus, we've all seen the crucifixes with INRI above His head. This stands for Iesus Nazarenvs Rex Ivdaeorvm, Latin for Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews, as recorded in John's Gospel. His "crime" was claiming to be a king, a treasonous act in ancient Rome. In a television interview I once conducted with Dr. Paul Maier, he noted that there were three phases of Roman history, beginning with the Monarchy from 753 to 509 B.C. The next stage was the Republic from 509 to 30 B.C. And then there was the Roman Empire from 30 B.C. to 476. Commenting on that first phase, Maier told me, "The first seven kings of Rome ended in a real tyrant. His name was Tarquin the Proud, and they didn't want another king throughout their history." Thus, after 509 B.C., the Romans eschewed the title "king" [rex] thereafter, despite having emperors who were far more powerful than any earthly king. Thus, Jesus' claim to be the King of the Jews was His death sentence. Maier adds "[Rex] was a term of opprobrium. It was somebody who was trying to subvert the masses.... And that is the charge that the prosecution made, which really turned the case as far as Pontius Pilate was concerned." It's a tragic fact that in 2000 years of Christian history, there have been anti-Semitic professing Christians who blamed the Jews for the crucifixion of Jesus. But the fact is that Jesus laid down His life as fully God and fully man, who alone fulfilled the Ten Commandments, on behalf of sinners---so that those who believe in Him might be saved. As Jesus Himself said, "I lay down my life that I may take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again" (John 10:17-18). If there were any "crime" committed for which Jesus was dying, it was the crime committed by sinful people against our holy Creator. Christians believe that Jesus is the King, whose kingdom was foretold by Daniel the prophet about 500 years before He came, who said that in the "days of those kings"---which kings? The Roman kings---the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will smite the Roman Empire. It begins as a small stone but that stone goes on to become a mountain that fills the whole earth. Christianity began very small, but has grown to where about one-third of humanity claims to be Christian. And so during this Holy Week, Christians celebrate the coming 2000 years ago of the King, who came the first time in humility, who will one day ride a white horse as the conquering King of kings and Lord of lords.

64 dead in Russia shopping mall fire: Alarms were silent, emergency exits blocked

By Associated Press | By NATALIYA VASILYEVA

PUBLISHED: March 26, 2018 at 5:58 am | UPDATED: March 26, 2018 at 6:21 am

MOSCOW — With the fire alarms silent and staff reportedly nowhere to be seen, a fire at a shopping mall packed with children and their parents on the first weekend of the school recess killed 64 people in Russia’s Siberia. The fire at the Winter Cherry mall in Kemerovo, a city about 1,900 miles east of Moscow, was extinguished by Monday morning after burning through the night. Firefighters were still recovering bodies as parts of the buildings were still smoldering. Some of the dead were found inside a cinema, which one witness said had been locked shut. Investigators said Monday that emergency exits were blocked and a security guard turned off the public announcement system when he received a call about the blaze. Four people have been detained in connection with the deadly, fire including one of the mall’s tenants. The investigators did not give the cause of the fire but said they have obtained evidence proving “flagrant violations” that could have contributed to the heavy loss of life, including the fact that the fire escapes were blocked. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Monday it was too early to draw conclusions about whether local officials failed in Kemerovo. Witness testimony indicated that the fire alarm did not go off and that staff did not arrange for the evacuation at the shopping mall, which was converted from a former confectionery factory in 2013. Winter Cherry was one of Kemerovo’s most popular entertainment centers for children, with its own indoor skating rink, petting zoo and trampolines. Kemerovo residents said the mall was packed with children and their parents. The Ekho Mosvky radio station on Monday quoted witnesses who said the fire alarm did not go off and that the mall’s staff did not organize the evacuation. Anna Zarechneva who was on the top floor where the fire started, watching a movie with her husband and son, said they only found out about the fire when a man ran into the theater shouting. “We didn’t hear the fire alarm, they even didn’t turn on the light during the show,” she said. “That movie could have been the last for us, I’ve only just realized that.” Alexander Lillevyali lost three daughters, 11-year-old twins and a 5-year-old, who were in a cinema hall on the top floor watching a cartoon. Lillevyali told the Meduza news website that one of his daughters called him, saying that they could smell the smoke but could not get out because the door was locked. “I was shouting into the phone, telling her to get out but there was nothing I could do — the fire was in front of me,” he said. The Prosecutor General’s Office on Monday ordered all shopping malls in Russia to be checked for fire safety features. Russian companies routinely complain about excessive checks from various government agencies, which often abuse elaborate rules and regulations to pressure businesses. As a result, many companies prefer to pay bribes instead of complying with outdated and excessive regulations, including fire safety rules.

Israeli Planes Hit Hezbollah Positions Along Syrian Border

By Rick Moran March 25, 2018

Israel's undeclared and clandestine war against the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah erupted again today as IAF planes hit several Hezbollah positions along the Syrian-Lebanese border. Hezbollah denies that Israel attacked them. The IDF had no comment. But several Arab media outlets are reporting the strike occurred and residents of Baalbek, a strategic Lebanese hamlet on the Syrian border, are saying they saw the planes and heard the explosions. 24 News: Hezbollah, the Iran-backed Shia group, denied the reports that Israel struck its positions and media outlets associated with the group said that no such strikes occurred. Israel has not yet commented on the report and is unlikely to do so. According to usual protocol it does not disclose information about airstrikes in foreign countries. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has prioritized the northern border as its greatest current threat, referring both to Hezbollah in Lebanon and Iranian proxies on the Syrian border, which carries the danger of a united front against the Jewish state. Hezbollah is said to have accumulated an arsenal of some 100,000 and 120,000 short- and medium-range missiles and rockets, as well as several hundred long-range missiles targeting Israel. Speaking in an interview with Reuters news agency last week, Deputy Leader of Hezbollah Sheikh Naim Qassem said that, despite rising tensions on the border, war with Israel was "not imminent.” The choice of Baalbek as a target is significant. Baalbek is in the Bekaa Valley, a Hezbollah stronghold, and is a key staging area for Hezbollah militia fighting to preserve the regime of Bashar Assad. Why doesn't Hezbollah admit that Israeli planes bombed them? An election is coming up in Lebanon and it would make little political sense to admit the enemy just cleaned your clock. Hezbollah is promoted as an invincible foe of Israel. It wouldn't do their electoral chances any good if they admit the Israelis exposed that notion as a sham. Beyond that, if you don't admit you've been attacked, it didn't happen. And that's the nature of this undeclared war between Israel and Hezbollah. Neither side wants to admit they are at war, but Israel is determined not to allow Hezbollah to set up a united front with the Syrians along the Israeli border. The attack on Baalbek was a reminder to Hezbollah not to get too comfortable and that they are being watched.

Saturday’s Talking Points

Posted March 25th, 2018 at 11:09 AM (CST) by Bill Holter & filed under General Editorial.

MSM: They write the headlines, therefore the truth doesn’t matter!

Most recent examples are the articles which state Trump called Putin to congratulate him on his “win” but doesn’t call him out on his high vote count? or, his election rigging in 2016 in the US? or, the poisoning of the spy? Can you fit more BS on the front page of the NYT? YES! Remember these from 2003? 1. The Iraq war has been going on for 15 years. How did that work out? Colin Powell said it would be 5 days, 5 weeks, at most…5 months. 2. Judith “Yellow Cake” Miller. 3. Cheney, “They will erupt with joy”! 4. Donald Rumsfeld, “The war will pay for itself”. 5. John Bolton in 2002, “We are confident that Saddam Hussein has hidden weapons of mass destruction and production facilities in Iraq”. 6. Remember George Bush landing on air craft carrier saying “mission accomplished”? Why would we trust anything they say? All the above turned out to be LIES! This Tweet 3:41 PM – Sep 5, 2013 from Donald J. Trump ✔ @realDonaldTrump “All former Bush administration officials should have zero standing on Syria. Iraq was a waste of blood & treasure. I ask, why did Donald flip flop? Does the Deep State own him? Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said Tuesday, during an appearance on The Laura Ingraham Show podcast, that the term “Deep State” accurately describes how an un-elected bureaucracy of national security officials in positions of power exert influence without Congressional oversight. Rand Paul is out this week saying the Deep State does exist. George Bush 1, Clinton, Clinton, George Bush 2, George Bush 2, Obama, Obama, Trump any change? China trade war indicates that real war is it about to happen… China can pressure the US in other areas of bilateral cooperation, for example, the Korean Peninsula issue and Iran nuclear issue. China can also set itself against the US in international organizations such as the UN. In addition, China needs to move fast to establish diplomatic ties with allies of Taiwan to further squeeze the island’s space in the international community. At the end of the piece, the writer dropped the mother of all bombshells, “Mainland [China] must prepare itself for a direct military clash in the Taiwan Straits” Today, we have high school kids having a nationwide protest against Guns. They have been so dumb-ed down by the public education system they don’t understand that the 2nd Amendment was put in place to save their sorry little asses from the Government! Schools are gun safe zones, so I could leave it home, or be a felon. What do you do? Citibank sets limits for clients involved in arms manufacturing and sales. “Arms”, is that like the “Arms” deal to the 32 year old Prince from Saudi Arabia “The Donald” showcased? Arms my ass! Why does the public fall for the same BS over and over, be it war or stock market and housing bubbles. They never seem to learn! Are they stupid? It seems so simple… wash, rinse, repeat! If Wall Street is so smart, how did Theranos / Miss Holmes get a value in the billions on a total scam, when miners sitting on known and proven reserves of Gold, a real asset for over thousands of years, get no interest? Gold and Silver: How much is there above-ground, and where is it? How much gold is below-ground, and where is it? How is it that in 2011, Gold was at $1,900, and now, with the world money printing 10 times more out of control than anyone ever thought it was, is only at $1,350 ? Was it over priced in 2011 or is it WAY under priced now? The Silver to Gold ratio at 81 to 1. How is that possible based on history? Could it be rigged? Could Russia be about to use it to back their currency ? In 2005, Russia was the richest country in gold reserves. Russia has the largest land mass on the planet. Do the Neo-Cons want to steal it again? The US sails in South China Sea yesterday. The official press out of China says they will go to war over Taiwan. Monday is D-day. Let’s see what it brings?????????????

US and 18 Other Countries Expel Russian Diplomats; Ambassador says Relations with the USA are "Destroyed" Congress gets "EMERGENCY BRIEFING" as talk of war

Category: World News Monday, 26 March 2018 10:25

President Donald Trump has expelled 60 Russian Diplomatic staff and ordered the closing of the Russian Consulate in Seattle, claiming it is an Espionage risk to Boeing and the US Naval Base in Bremerton, WA. Thirteen Fourteen FIFTEEN SEVENTEEN EIGHTEEN other countries have also announced the expulsion of Russian Diplomatic staff. The Russians now characterize the situation as being "in a state of confrontation with the west" and the Russian Ambassador to the US saying relations are "destroyed." Estonia has expelled the Russian Defense Attache'. Ukraine has expelled 13 Russian Diplomatic staff. The Netherlands says it is expelling two Russian Diplomatic staff with more to follow. The Czech Republic says it is downgrading the Russian Embassy and expelling 3 Russians. Lithuania is beginning Embassy expulsions and is banning 44 Russians from their country. Latvia is expelling a key Russia Diplomat and looking into further Sanctions. Denmark is expelling 2 Russian Diplomats. France has expelled four Senior Russians . Germany has announced the expulsion of four Russian Diplomats. Poland has expelled 4 Russians. Italy has expelled 2 Russians. Denmark has expelled 2 Russians. Canada has expelled 4 Russians. Romania has expelled 1 Russian. Finland has expelled 1 Russian.

IN RESPONSE, RUSSIA ANNOUNCES EXPULSION OF A MINIMUM OF 60 AMERICANS FROM THE MOSCOW EMBASSY - ANNOUNCES DESTRUCTION OF RELATIONS WITH THE USA 12 RUSSIANS EXPELLED FROM THE UNITED NATIONS - USA SAYS THAT THEY WERE INTELLIGENCE OFFICERS ENGAGED IN ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES RUSSIAN AMBASSADOR TO WASHINGTON EXPELLED RUSSIAN AMBASSADOR SAYS USA ONLY UNDERSTANDS FORCE AND WILL BE RECEIVING A GIFt All of this is due to the ALLEGED use of a nerve agent against a former Soviet era spy in side Britain in violation of the Chemical Weapons Convention. The problem with this claim is that the alleged Nerve agent was officially destroyed by Russia under UN supervision decades ago. Britain has thus far FAILED to provide samples of the evidence to Russia for analysis, and it turns out that there is a facility in Britain, eight miles from where the spy was poisoned, that manufactures the same - or similar - nerve agent. Russia says Britain did this to itself as a "false flag" against Russia and is refusing to provide samples because such samples would prove the nerve agent was made in Britain! It APPEARS at this time, that the British "nerve agent" poisoning, is a FALSE FLAG EVENT designed to start a war with Russia - and they are APPARENTLY moving toward that exact goal based upon this deliberate fraud. UPDATE 10:31 AM EDT -- RUSSIA SAYS "THIS AMOUNTS TO A DELIBERATE CONFRONTATION AND WILL BE ANSWERED" - RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT CROATIA EXPELLING DIPLOMAT Hungary to expel Lead Russian Diplomat Spain to expel 2 Russians UH OH . . . US CONGRESS BEING GIVEN "EMERGENCY UPDATE BRIEFING" Hal Turner Comment I am 56 years old; been around a long time. I have NEVER seen anything like this take place on the world stage. This is an unprecedented collective action and it is leading to outright war. You cannot have war until relations are destroyed and the destruction of relations is taking place right now. Today. UPDATE 10:42 AM EDT -- "THE WEST HAS MADE A MISTAKE AND I WILL BE MAKING FINAL DECISIONS ON A RESPONSE" -PUTIN Sweden expels Russian Diplomat UPDATE 10:49 AM EDT -- My sources in the Intelligence Community (IC) are saying this may be related to the "PetroYuan" launched by China to buy and sell OIL in Yuan instead of Dollars. The "PetroYuan" went LIVE last night, and in the first hour of trading, TEN BILLION DOLLARS of notional trading took place. For decades, all oil sales in the world HAD to be performed using Dollars. This meant that countries around the world needed physical US Dollars to buy oil. With a new way to now purchase oil using the Chinese Yuan currency, a whole slew of US Dollars are going to flood back into the USA from countries that don't want our currency anymore and who have resented having to use it. When all that cash starts coming back into the USA, it will cause almost immediate hyper-inflation, wrecking the value of the Dollar, and collapsing the US economy. THAT is something countries go to war to prevent . . . This fits the situation when one sees that the US has been deliberately conducting "freedom of navigation" exercises in the South China Sea, ignoring the artificial islands created by China and the new "territory" claimed by those islands. Last week, China's President Xi Jinping, said "China is ready for a bloody battle" over what they claim is their "Sovereignty" in that region. China is part of the BRICS economic group: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. Those countries collectively equate to a HUGE economic force and if they are now all going to swith to the PetroYuan, then the US may not survive as an economic power! Hence, "trouble" with the two biggest players in that BRICS group: China and Russia. We could see the actual start of World War 3 before the month ends. Expulsion of ambassadors is always the last step before the bullets start to fly. Diplomats getting expelled or leaving is one of the first signs of war. This means all enemy assets are being removed so they cant do anything from within.

China Launches Massive Military Drills "In Preparation For War"

by Tyler Durden Sun, 03/25/2018 - 10:54

Just hours after the latest close military encounter between the US and China, when the US navy sailed a destroyer to within 12 nautical miles of the contested Spratly Islands in the South China Sea as a "freedom of navigation" operation - a move that China condemned as a "severe provocation" just as the two countries launched an all-out trade war - the Chinese military launched its spring combat readiness drills with an air force exercise in the West Pacific and a joint combat patrol mission in the South China Sea. The air force drills include H-6K bombers and Su-30 and Su-35 fighters, according to the PLA , and have a simple, if clear, purpose: "Air Force exercises are rehearsals for future wars and are the most direct preparation for war," the Chinese Air Force said on its Weibo account on Sunday, according to Reuters. "The more exercises China practices far from its shores the better it will be positioned as an important force for managing and controlling crises, containing war and winning battles", it added. Additionally, the PLA Navy is holding drills in the South China Sea to test the navy's combat readiness, China Central Television reported on Friday. It quoted the PLA Navy as saying the drills are routine and do not target any country, although the message had one clear recipient: USA. "The South China Sea and East China Sea will be primary battlegrounds. The PLA is committed to be battle-ready through simulated combat training," Song Zhongping, a military expert and TV commentator, told the Global Times on Sunday. "The 2018 drills will be routine and will be held every month, unlike in previous years," Song said, adding that drills were usually held in spring and autumn. The Global Times reported that "the drills come as the situation in the South China Sea stabilizes." However, the Chinese state-owned nationalist paper added that "some nations are still trying to stir up regional disputes, Wang Xiaopeng, a maritime border expert at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, told the Global Times on Sunday." Although the drills do not target any specific country, they are focused on enhancing China's capability to safeguard the country's sovereignty, Wang said. News of the drills comes a day after the USS Mustin came within 12 nautical miles of Meiji Reef in the Nansha Islands in the South China Sea. Chinese President Xi Jinping, has urged the army at all levels to enhance military training oriented to combat readiness and to put military training at a strategic position and as the central work with effective results, the Xinhua News Agency reported. Xi called on the armed forces to enhance targeted and adversarial training, improve actual combat ability, and firmly grasp the capability to win battles. The Air Force even released a photo of a Su-30 fighter jet on Sino Weibo during its drills. The caption read, "It's spring time. Let's spread the wings across the ocean." By releasing the photo, the PLA Air Force demonstrated its confidence in the open-sea training and the use of weapons, Song said. The routine military drills in 2018 will focus more on the use of high-end weapons, especially in an electromagnetic environment, as well as on combined forces training, Song added. As a strategic force, the air force has extended its activities from inland to the deep ocean, it said on Weibo. The air force has become a key force in shaping situations, controlling crises, constraining wars and winning battles, it said. And so with the US and China already engaged in escalating trade war, it appears that Beijing is preparing for the next step.

As Russia Unveils Unstoppable Nukes That Could Vaporize American Cities Instantly, Atomic Bomb Test Survivor Shares This Warning With America

- 'Now I Am Become Death, The Destroyer Of Worlds'

Submitted to All News Pipeline by Pastor Dick Carmack

De 28:34 So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.

35 The LORD shall smite thee in the knees, and in the legs, with a sore botch that cannot be healed, from the sole of thy foot unto the top of thy head.

66 And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life:

67 In the morning thou shalt say, Would God it were even! and at even thou shalt say, Would God it were morning! for the fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.

With Russia recently unveiling unstoppable nuclear weapons that could nearly instantly vaporize American cities as heard in the first video below and our world becoming increasingly dangerous, it is absolutely prudent to consider possible scenarios for our future. Will there be atomic warfare, warfare that comes here to American soil? If so, here is an eyewitness account of an actual blast. In the spring of 1953 I was a guinea pig in an above-ground atom bomb test at Camp Desert Rock Nevada. Concerning what we are facing today I want to post a story I wrote about the experience. How it applies, I’ll leave to the reader. To give the reader a sense of more reasons of why we believe and how we arrived at our conjecture that atomic-type blasts will probably come into play in the wars that are described in the Bible, we are including here, an account of our own personal experience when the writer was a guinea pig in an atomic test: This writer was stationed at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri (Corps of Engineers, U.S. Army) in early spring of 1953 when many of us were ordered as “volunteers” to board a train for Nevada to participate in an atomic test. It was early, perhaps an hour before sun-up on a chilly March morning. We had been trucked to the site the afternoon before, a few miles from Camp Desert Rock which lay about 80 miles north of Las Vegas, Nevada. We had come almost 1,600 miles from Missouri to be the “invited” (ordered) but reluctant guinea pigs in an atomic test called "Operation UPSHOT-KNOTHOLE, “1953 (CONUS “Continental United States).” We were told the device to be tested was of approximately the same size as “Little Boy” that was dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima on 6 August 1945 which was followed shortly by another called 'FatMan' over Nagasaki on 9 August.” If our recollection is accurate then the test in which we participated was “Annie” and took place on March 17, 1953. The following paragraph is the official government release of information concerning the event: “ANNIE, the first device tested, was an "open shot," meaning that reporters were allowed to view the detonation from News Nob, 11 kilometers south of the shot-tower. The Government wanted to show the American public that nuclear weapons could be used defensively, without destroying large urban centers and populations “ Early next morning, the entire troop of men numbering at least in the hundreds, perhaps more, were ordered into a series of trenches (five or six feet deep) running horizontal to and about 3000 yards from ground zero to the north where the “device” rested atop a 300’ steel tower. It was a cube and looked to be perhaps the size of a small camper trailer (Ed note, device size has since been drastically reduced). There were no distinguishing characteristics, just a black box barely seen in a gradually lightening sky. Sun-up was near, but not yet. First we faced south and at an unknown range in the dark of early morning, saw a huge explosion which we were told had been 20,000 lbs (ten tons) of TNT. Very large, very impressive, but, as we were soon to understand, merely a candle at 50 feet compared to what was to come. “The official yield estimate of "Little Boy" (Hiroshima) was about 16 kilotons of TNT equivalent in explosive force, i.e. 6.3 × 1013.” The comparison therefore between the TNT and the atomic device would be roughly ten tons to 16,000 tons, assuming our test was the same size as Little Boy. We were told to close our eyes but that proved almost impossible. The temptation was great to “take a peek” although we had been warned to do so might result in permanent blindness. There was a huge flash that is impossible to describe. A flash no known machine could produce. A flash that lit your eye up like daylight even with the eyelid tightly closed. The mountain landscape more than 20 miles away exploded in a brilliant white (that’s a few seconds later when we dared to look). The flash lit the mountain as brightly as if a trillion flashbulbs had exploded in unison. It was a blinding, white light that rested on the eye for several seconds. As we began to slowly comprehend what we were seeing, we felt the first shock wave. The ground began to rumble like a sleeping giant rolling over and beginning to wake. The noise started as a low hum and quickly expanded into something like the roar of a locomotive bearing down on you with violent shaking, throwing equipment, men and animals first one direction and then another. Soldiers in trenches, in this and in subsequent tests of similar weapons testified their bodies were thrown uncontrollably from one side of the trenched excavation to the other. As the shaking and heaving continued we looked up to ground level and saw dust and sand. Also rocks the size of five gallon buckets were thrown violently across the ground. A suffocating shroud of dirt immediately dropped on anything that was not blown away. Roughly 15 seconds later, instead of blowing south, the hurricane of debris shifted 180 degrees and instead of small rocks and boulders flying overhead we saw large blocks of fused sand (Trinitite) and possibly large boulders going back to the north, back to “the point of detonation.” This continued for maybe 20 seconds before an eerie silence descended on the scene. Not a sound was heard as the entire army of guinea pigs crouched in stunned silence. Next, as the dust began to settle we were told by loudspeaker it was safe to stand and see the after effects of the blast. First we looked north toward the point of detonation, and where a 300 ft. tower had stood only minutes before there was now only flat ground, no debris, just desert, the tower had disintegrated. In the silence a mushroom cloud ascended in the early morning light and as the sun peeked over the mountains to the east, a beautiful blue, the color of Safire spread across the top of the first “mushroom.” Out of that, the cloud continued its spiral toward the sky and as the second and third mushroom tops formed, the intensity of color grew. We stood in breathless awe and then as we lowered our eyes we saw a “wheel within a wheel” reminiscent of Ezekiel’s description of God Himself…

Ezekiel 1:4 ¶ And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.

A dirty brown cloud roiled and boiled on the ground. The tongues of fire licked through the dirt as a huge fat wheel looking like a dirty donut on its side, was growling and wrestling with itself as it rolled from the bottom up, curling on the outside of the donut and disappearing “infolding,” toward the inside at the top. And out of this writhing mass of dirt and fire at a 90 degree angle came a “wheel within a wheel.”…

Eze 1:16 The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel.

The center “wheel” turned at a right angle from the donut lying on the ground. It spun in a counter-clockwise direction (like a contained tornado) as viewed from the top. Up and up it snaked into the atmosphere mushrooming out at perhaps 500-800 ft., then topping and forming a new “wheel” which continued its trip to the sky, again, topping and continuing on to a third mushroom top, each capped with a layer of blue:…

Eze 1:22 And the likeness of the firmament upon the heads of the living creature was as the colour of the terrible crystal stretched forth over their heads above. (ED: “colour” A beautiful aquamarine beryl blue) We stood with mouths open in speechless, stunned astonishment and as we stood and looked, it gradually dawned on me that instead of my field jacket being buttoned tightly around my throat because of the cold, I had unconsciously opened each button in sequence and stood with jacket wide open. The temperature had risen from probably 35 F to perhaps 70 or 80 F in a matter of a few minutes. As we looked to the outside of the area, in a ring of fire, a radius of what we were told was about eight miles; the sagebrush was burning. The initial blast had burned everything in its path, reaching its extremity at roughly eight miles. At this point, the blast had reached its maximum and the resulting vacuum then pulled much of the debris back to “ground zero,” extinguishing all fires as the air rushed back to the center, filling the void created by the atomic blast. The effect was to leave a “ring of fire” sixteen miles in diameter encircling us. Gradually, the “mushrooms” began to disintegrate, as all the dust settled and a clear Nevada sky came to bloom. Our next and almost immediate action was “scrimmage.” We were ordered, and I mean that as a fact, to take our M1 rifles and scrimmage or dogtrot toward ground zero, only stopping at what we were told was 1000 yards from the blast point. As we scrimmaged toward the center our feet crunched through fused sand (“Trinitite” see addendum), snapping it like thin yellow-green glass as we made our trails across the desert. Jackrabbits wobbled crazily from side to side, somehow having escaped death as the blast tore across the earth. By this time we were sweating heavily because of the physical exertion and the dramatic rise in temperature.

Next on the agenda was a tour to view the effects of the blast on buildings and test animals we had seen the previous afternoon, stick-built sheds and houses simulating a small village and a long, wide excavation sloping downward away from the “device.” In this wide “trench” were about a half dozen sheep. After the blast we went by again and of the six or seven sheep only one had its coat burned and that only on one side. The other animals were singed on their backs and had obviously “instinctively?” lined up one behind the other so only the lead sheep took the main effect of the blast. We surmised they were crowded in the farthest and deepest part of the trench when “Annie” went off. Suffice it to say, the buildings had disappeared. The final action of the morning, before we boarded troop carriers back to camp, was the sweeping down with brooms of accumulated dust and the removal of our REMM badges that each soldier was issued and had pinned to his jacket. The badges were supposed to record the amount of radiation each of us had been exposed to. After the trip back to camp we were finally allowed to shower, never being told the amount of danger we guinea pigs had undergone. A month or so later I was given a 30 day leave and while at home in Colorado I started losing all my hair. Not relating the hair loss with radiation at the time, I assumed I was going prematurely bald, though in a few months the hair later grew back to normal. Many years later we read about one effect of radiation being hair loss, and then made the connection. We heard speculation and stories and in later years I understand many of us guinea pigs died from various types of cancers and other diseases. I was one of those that was spared. I later married and fathered five children, our children giving birth to many more children, till today we number over 70 grand and great grandchildren. None of who, to the best of my knowledge suffer from any ill effects of the experience. Am I claiming my personal observation of an atomic explosion is comparable to the description of God given in Ezekiel 1? Of course not. I simply saw things that to me were hard to put into words until I later became a Christian and then was astounded to read in the Bible, almost exactly what I had seen on the desert of Nevada so many years ago. Addendum: “A number of different types of Trinitite have been identified. Green is the most common form. Black contains iron from the tower structure. Red contains copper from the device used in the blast or from the communications cables that led away from the site. Both black and red specimens are extremely rare. Rounded "pearls" also are found, which come from melted silica that returned to solid form before hitting the ground. “The glass has been described as "a layer “ to 2 centimeters thick, with the upper surface marked by a very thin sprinkling of dust which fell upon it while it was still molten. At the bottom is a thicker film of partially fused material, which grades into the soil from which it was derived. The color of the glass is a pale bottle green, and the material is extremely vesicular with the size of the bubbles ranging to nearly the full thickness of the specimen."

ANALYSIS: How Turkey is working to restore the Ottoman Empire

The Turks have conquered Afrin, in Syria, from the Kurds. Erdogan, working to restore the Ottoman empire, is going on to Manbij and Iraq..

Contact Editor Yochanan Visser, 25/03/18 21:51

Yochanan Visser is an independent journalist/analyst who worked for many years as Middle East correspondent for Western Journalism.com in Arizona and was a frequent publicist for the main Dutch paper De Volkskrant. He authored a book in the Dutch language about the cognitive war against Israel and now lives in Gush Etzion. He writes a twice weekly analysis of current issues for Arutz Sheva. Last week the Turkish military and its ally, the Free Syrian Army, finally succeeded in capturing the city of Afrin in the most northern Kurdish autonomous canton in Syria. The Kurdish militia YPG decided to evacuate its forces after the Turks and their allies had encircled the city from three sides, dealing a severe blow to Kurdish autonomy aspirations in Syria. Turkish dictator Recep Tayyip Erdoğan used the victory to make new threats against the Kurds in both Syria and Iraq, while vowing not to leave Afrin “before the job is done”. The Turkish government claims 3747 YPG fighters have died in the illn-named ‘Operation Olive Branch’ which lasted for more than two months. On the Turkish side 42 soldiers died while 159 fighters of the Free Syrian Army lost their lives, according to Russian state-controlled media.  Approximately 200,000 people were displaced as a result of the Turkish offensive which came to an abrupt end after the Kurds decided not to engage in urban warfare and left Afrin under the cover of civilian convoys. There have been reports about looting by Erdogan’s forces after the fall of Afrin. Turkish soldiers broke into shops and stole food but also other goods and even a number of motorcycles, according to Arab media. On Sunday, the Turkish authorities reported that the Afrin canton was under “complete control” with the state-controlled Anadolu news agency reporting the Turkish army had started to sweep mines and explosives in anticipation of the return of the civilian population. Experts on Turkey now say that the Afrin operation is another indication Erdogan is working to restore the Ottoman empire which included areas in Syria and Iraq such as Sinjar and Afrin. The Turkish regime released a movie about the offensive in Afrin in which the victory over the Kurds was labeled a “conquest”, while state-controlled media used the same term to describe the fall of Afrin . Fears that Erdogan will not stop his second intervention in Syria after the fall of Afrin seem therefore to be justified. He will try to ‘liberate’ other parts of Syria and even Iraq where the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) has a foothold in the Sinjar region. The hotheaded Turkish strongman has vowed he will now order his forces to move in the direction of the predominantly Sunni Arab city of Manbij which was liberated from ISIS by the Arab/Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in 2016. This will most likely pit the Turkish military against NATO ally the United States, which has vowed it has no intention to leave Manbij. During a meeting in Istanbul of Erdogan’s AKP party the Turkish dictator said he “won’t take steps backward from here”. He then said he had spoken with Russian president Vladimir Putin and his American counterpart Donald Trump about his plans to cleanse Manbij and the other two Kurdish cantons in Syria from ‘terrorists,’ a term he also uses to demonize his opponents in Turkey. ‘We won’t take steps backward from here. We are on the side of the suffering and the oppressed,’” Erdogan told his supporters while claiming that 160,000 Syrian “brothers and sisters” are now able to return home. He meant a part of the Sunni Syrian Arab refugees who fled to Turkey as a result of the Syrian civil war. A senior Trump official reacted by vowing the U.S. “has no intention to leave Manbij” which has a contingent of 2,000 American Special Forces which have been assisting the SDF in its battle against ISIS. “US forces are located in Manbij. We have made it very clear with the Turkish government that we will continue to operate there,” State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert said during a press conference last week. Incoming Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is expected not to execute a compromise which was reached by his predecessor Rex Tillerson, who last month brokered a deal with Erdogan about shared control of Manbij. Pompeo is no fan of Erdogan and labeled Turkey “an Islamist dictatorship” after the botched coup in July 2016. There’s more. In southeastern Afrin, Erdogan’s forces could be on the edge of a confrontation with the Syrian army and its allies after they seized four villages and are now approaching a region which is under Syrian army control. Unnamed sources told the Iranian Fars News Agency “Turkish forces have approached the regions near the two towns of Nobl and al-Zahra which are under the Syrian army's control now.” After the new Turkish intervention in Syria, Assad’s forces made inroads to Idlib which neighbors Afrin and from there they proceeded in the direction of Afrin. As for Iraq, Erdogan has repeatedly warned the Turkish army could come to Sinjar “overnight”. "If (Baghdad) cannot (make an end to the PKK presence), we may turn up in Sinjar suddenly one night and clean up the PKK there," Erdogan said last Monday about the impending Turkish invasion of northern Iraq which he dubbed “Operation Tigris Shield”. His remarks drew the ire of the central government in Baghdad which announced its absolute rejection of any foreign intervention in the territories under its control. It didn’t stop Erdogan from ordering new airstrikes on PKK bases in northern Iraq after which the PKK announced it would withdraw 2,000 fighters from Sinjar. Some media reports said the Turks had already invaded northern Iraq. It was another indication that the Turkish dictator is waging a “personal war”, as one pundit put it, against the Kurds who dreamt to establish an independent state even before the allied forces divided the Middle East after WWI and created artificial states.

Supermarket Bankruptcies Are Beginning to Pile Up

By Craig Giammona March 19, 2018, 5:00 AM EDT

Bankruptcies show how tough competition has gotten for grocers

Walmart, Kroger are making expensive investments in technology

This is how the grocery industry lives now. Regional chains are filing for bankruptcy. European-born discounters are expanding, forcing competitors to keep their own prices low. And Kroger Co. and Walmart Inc., the two largest grocers in the U.S., are investing in technology and expanding delivery as they try to fend off an incursion by Amazon.com Inc. It’s a bleak outlook for a sector that was supposed to be rebounding this year. A historic bout of food deflation -- which fueled a price war in the past two years -- has ended, but efforts to sell more groceries online are gobbling up investment dollars. And some well-known names are crying uncle. Southeastern Grocers, owner of the Winn-Dixie and Bi-Lo supermarket chains, filed for bankruptcy last week. “The environment is intensely competitive,” said Jennifer Bartashus, an analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence. “And I don’t see that easing anytime soon.” For now, Amazon is more of a symbolic threat. It acquired Whole Foods Market last year, but that provided it with less than 500 stores. The e-commerce giant’s grocery-delivery business, meanwhile, still only has a small slice of the grocery market. Investors Rattled Even so, Amazon’s expansion has prodded traditional stores into making costly changes -- and the fears of investors have battered their stocks. So far this year, Kroger and Walmart have lost more than $30 billion in market value combined. What Drew Amazon and Alibaba to Brick-and-Mortar: QuickTake Q&A But the grocery giants at least have the scale and resources needed to adapt. The industry’s smaller players are even more at risk. Along with Southeastern Grocers, Tops Friendly Markets also filed for bankruptcy in the past month. Based in Williamsville, New York, Tops has about 170 stores. Southeastern Grocers, meanwhile, has nearly 700 locations. The company announced it was reorganizing on Thursday, with plans to close 94 stores. As the pressure mounts, other regional chains could go under, according to Roger Davidson, an industry consultant. “These weaker retailers are starting to collapse,” he said. Tight Margins Even before Amazon bought Whole Foods last year, pressure was ramping up in the grocery industry, which is known for razor-thin margins. In recent years, food has proliferated at dollar stores and pharmacies, with groceries seen as a reliable drive of store traffic. The rise of meal kits also has given U.S. consumers another dinner option, and one that often translates to less grocery shopping. All of this comes after a building boom in the industry. For years, supermarkets were seen as a safe investment because they were mostly immune to the disruptive forces of e-commerce. “There’s been a bit of a moat around it,” said James Cook, director of retail research at JLL. That feeling of security has evaporated. Last year, new grocery store openings plunged 29 percent as companies curtailed expansion plans, according to a report from JLL. German Rivals To be sure, some chains are still adding stores, most notably Aldi and Lidl. The two longtime German rivals currently account for 27 percent of the grocery stores recently built or in progress, according to data from research firm Planned Grocery. Lidl is a newcomer to the U.S., but research has shown that it forces rivals to lower prices in the markets where it opens stores. Aldi has been operating in the U.S. since 1976 and now has more than 1,750 stores. It’s spending more than $5 billion to remodel 1,300 existing stores and build an additional 750 locations over the next five years. The remodels have included more selling space for natural and organic items, part of a bid for wealthier shoppers, according to Jason Hart, who leads the chain’s U.S. operations. Over the last three years, the company’s organic produce sales have surged more than 200 percent. “We’ve made the Aldi concept appeal to a broader set of consumers,” he said in an interview. “The momentum we have currently is something we always thought we should have -- the concept just makes sense.” Slow Growth All of the competitive pressure comes as the grocery industry averaged only about 2 percent growth over the last five years, according to a report from Forrester Research Inc. That means the industry is mainly fighting for market share at this point. So far, Amazon hasn’t said much about its broader plans for Whole Foods. The premium chain has been struggling under the new management, with complaints rolling in about out-of-stock items and quality problems. That shows Amazon might not have the easiest time turning the business into a fine-tuned part of its operations. But Amazon remains a source of pressure in an industry still recovering from food deflation. And that’s unlikely to change soon. “Everyone hoped the return of inflation would provide some relief,” said Bloomberg Intelligence’s Bartashus. “But it hasn’t happened.”

Brain Implants Are Happening — Are You Ready For Yours?

March 18, 2018 by SkyWatch Editor

Brain implants or other types of neural links, such as Brain Computer Interfaces (BCIs) between the brain, the internet, and the cloud, are quickly entering the realm of science rather than science fiction. The Defense Advanced Research Agency is ready to run trials with closed-loop mood control chips linked to AI that can deliver an electrical impulse to regulate a soldier’s mood. In the private sector, Elon Musk has announced Neuralink — a neurotechnology venture that will not only focus on fighting diseases but also on augmenting humans so they can better compete with machines […] The introduction of brain implants that we normal people could buy at the mall will open a Pandora’s box of possibilities. It’s one of those technological leaps that makes you wonder if our future is going to be heaven or hell. This is something that I spend a lot of time thinking about, and have written extensively about in articles and for my book. I know it might sound like a cliché, but many of the potential “upgrades to human” will probably end up downgrading our lives in terms of health and happiness. While we might gain certain superpowers, we would also lose many attributes that define us as human beings… (READ MORE)

Abortionist Slits Babies’ Throats So They Can’t Scream

The scariest thing about progressives is that their rejection of God and of morality makes them capable of anything. Someone asked Utah abortionist Leah Torres if she hears the screams of the babies she kills. Her response was chilling: “You know fetuses can’t scream, right? I transect the cord 1st so there’s really no opportunity, if they’re even far enough along to have a larynx.” The babies can’t scream because she cuts their throats. Yet liberals puff themselves up with self-righteousness as they defend these inhuman procedures. On a tip from Troy H.

'Liberal Policies Of Mass Destruction' Leave Blistering Path Of Death And Starvation In Socialist Venezuela, Where The Only Full Refrigerator Is At The Morgue

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die March 18, 2018

In this new story over at the Panam Post that Zero Hedge picked up on their website on Saturday, the story shines a very bright light on two of the biggest problems they're facing in Venezuela that help to explain why conditions are now so dire there. Titled "The Only Full Refrigerator In Venezuela Is In The Morgue", the subtitle of their story should sound a very loud and very clear alarm to the tens of thousands of university professors all across America who have been indoctrinating their students into socialism.: Sociologist Tomas Paez argues that the disastrous socialist public policy of Chavez and Maduro has been the primary factor in the massive exodus from Venezuela. The story then goes on to hit straight to home for everybody in America who thinks that we'll be better off with socialism here, especially to those university professors who've been pushing 'liberal policies of mass destruction'. Reporting that the salary of the average university professor in Venezuela is between 5 and 7 dollars.....and if you're waiting to gasp to learn that they only make $5 to $7 an hour, you'd be terribly wrong, the average university professor in Venezuela brings home between $5 and $7... A MONTH! Anybody still ready for socialism in America? vz_prof_salary.gif While the cost of living in Venezuela is 57.18% lower than we have here in the United States and rent in Venezuela is 81.14% lower than what it is in United States according to Numbeo, at least 87% of the people in Venezuela now live in poverty. And even with the much lower cost of living and rents in Venezuela, imagine trying to survive off of even $50 a month. While Numbeo's figures for the average Venezuelan monthly salary of $33.36 differs from the figures given by the Panam Post and even a recent CNN story as we see below, Numbeo also reports the average 1 bedroom apartment rents for $182.22 per month outside of the city center while basic utilities run about $12.29 a month. And while gasoline there sells for 1 cent per gallon according to the global petrol prices website, a meal for two at a mid-range restaurant averages about $30 leading us to ask, how can the people of Venezuela even survive in that socialist nation? In fact, according to the Panam Post story, should the average university professor in Venezuela choose to leave the country like millions of others have already done with an estimated 3 million Venezuelans leaving over the past several years, and they choose to leave Venezuela by plane, they'd have to work between 15 to 18 years, non-stop without spending money on anything else, just to get the money they'd need to buy the plane ticket. "Long live Venezuela, hurrah?" As CNN itself reported earlier in March in this story saved over at Archive, while those in Venezuela who are earning 'minimum wage' recently saw President Nicolas Maduro raise it to what amounts to $6.13 a month using current exchange rates, due to the country's runaway inflation rates, that amount is far less than they were making last year. And last year, the average person in Venezula lost 25 pounds. That amount was up from the 18 pounds that the average Venezuelan lost in 2016. Still ready for socialism, kids? As we've reported time and again on ANP, what has been happening all across Venezuela should be looked at as a very dire warning to America. Is anybody listening? And with the 'mass exodus from Venezuela' mirroring what we're now seeing from the state of California with that socialist-wannabe-nation sinking into collapse with tens of thousands homeless as Mary Taylor recently reported on ANP, it's easy to see that anybody who's pushing us into socialism is pushing us towards complete destruction. With zookeepers allowing zoo animals to battle it out in a 'lose and be-eaten' nightmarish dysphoria and the people of Venezuela selling their selves or their children to acquire their next meals, criminal gangs there are using food to lure children in as new members while starvation becomes the 'new norm' there as we hear in the heartbreaking 1st video below. As CNN also reported back on January 17th in a story titled "You Can't Get $1 Out Of The Bank In Venezuela. I Tried", their reporter Stephano Pozzebon who lives there had recently spent 4 hours visiting 4 different banks in a vain attempt to withdraw money - his net result: 6 cents! While most Americans could dig around on the floors of their cars and find at least 5 times that amount of change without looking too hard, there but for the Amazing Grace of God go we. Yet how close might America be to reaching 'Venezuela-levels' of depths of despair within our own country? While the 'purchase power parity' of Americans in 2016 was $57,300, the forecast PPP for Americans in 2025 is only $11,304. Let's compare that to Venezuela. While Venezuela's 2016 PPP was $15,100, (MORE than the PPP for America is forecast to be in 2025!), the forecast PPP for 2025 Venezuela is only $9,720. Taking that comparison a little bit further, the forecast 2025 PPP for Qatar is $49,726, the forecast 2025 PPP for Russia is $39,702 while the 2025 forecast PPP for Finland is $37,341. What is 'purchase power parity' you might ask? From Investopedia: Purchasing power parity is an economic theory that compares different countries' currencies through a market "basket of goods" approach. According to this concept, two currencies are in equilibrium or at par when a market basket of goods (taking into account the exchange rate) is priced the same in both countries. While the PPP for the US in 2016 was almost 4X that of Venezuela, our forecast PPP for 2025 is not even $2,000 above the PPP being forecast for Venezuela showing us once again, the 'deep state' who Deagel gets their information from is 'forecasting' America in total collapse by 2025. With empty store shelves and mass starvation the 'new norm' in Venezuela and clueless Americans still pushing socialism as 'the answer' to the problems here in our own country that ail us, we remind you that all throughout history, food has been used as a weapon by totalitarian government's against their people, just as we're witnessing now in Venezuela. And while we should be ever grateful here in America, where our grocery store shelves are stocked full every day and our next meals as close as our refrigerator's, it's been warned over and over again that Venezuela should be looked at as a warning to America, even if our country never falls to the catastrophic levels of poverty being seen there. For should war break out upon US soil or an EMP take down our electrical grid, past snow storms across big cities in America show how quickly store shelves are cleared out, especially if in the future people suddenly came to realize that what they saw upon the shelves before them might be the last time they saw food in grocery stores for a very long time. With most people in America still completely unprepared for a TEOTWAWKI situation suddenly happening here and the clueless masses pushing for socialism with a majority of millenials preferring to live in a communist, socialist or fascist country according to this Washington Times story, people should really be careful about what they wish for, they just might get it.

Official Washington flocking to Doomsday Camps

by Paul Bedard | March 19, 2018 08:16 AM

A building network of backwoods doomsday camps around the country are pulling in members from affluent areas and even Washington national security officials as the threats grow from nuclear war, an EMP or virus attack. Called Fortitude Ranch, the outposts promise protection and a year’s supply of food for those unable to build their own bunker. What’s more, until a crisis strikes, they are being used for prepper training and vacations. members from all the three letter agencies,” said Fortitude creator Drew Miller, a retired Air Force colonel and intelligence officer, in a reference to the Central Intelligence Agency, Defense Intelligence Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation. He called an attack or even a weather-related electromagnetic pulse shutdown of the electric grid “inevitable,” and a driving force in his project. One of his members from the Baltimore area, speaking on background, said that he and others joined after “waking up” to the potential of a national crisis from an attack, financial meltdown or political violence. “For most of us, something rattled our cages and woke us up,” he said. Through memberships and his own cryptocurrency called “Fortitudes,” Miller has raised about $400,000 and established a ranch in West Virginia and Colorado with 10 others planned. An open house at the West Virginia ranch is scheduled for April 21-23. He said that for the West Virginia ranch, “most members are professional Washington area folks. They don’t have time to do this own their own.” The cost is about $1,000 per person per year to join. Each camp is expected to house 50-500 in a crisis and Miller said they will have lodges, underground bunkers and guard towers. In the event of a social meltdown, members will be responsible for manning those towers. Each camp has a shooting range. He said that the camps are nearly as survivable in an attack as the Mt. Weather FEMA site near Virginia’s Shenandoah River where several Washington leaders were housed after the 9/11 attacks. There have been numerous reports recently warning of EMP, nuclear and viral attacks from Russia, Iran and North Korea. “You’d have to be an idiot not to think it will happen,” said Miller, author of “Rohan Nation: Reinventing America After the 2020 Collapse.” On his website, Miller plays up the prepper/vacation angle for members. “We are a large survival community that can keep members spread out (virus protection) have sufficient size to deter/defeat marauder attacks and raise crops/livestock.” it says. “The best approach to reliable, effective, affordable survivability is to join a survival community that is large and well prepared to deal with viral pandemics, marauder threats, and long-term collapse conditions. We are also a great, low cost vacation and recreational site for our members since we locate in remote, beautiful forest, mountain areas,” it adds.

Is California's Governor Preparing To 'Wage War' On Conservatives In California? 'Be Careful What You Wish For, Jerry'

Submitted to All News Pipeline by William B Stoecker March 18, 2018

Not satisfied with being dead last among the states, based on things like educational standards, poverty, and homelessness, the glorious leaders of Jerry Moonbeam’s People’s Republic of Fruits and Nuts (formerly known as California) are forging ahead to new depths. California’s major urban areas have declared themselves to be “sanctuary cities” for “undocumented immigrants,” which is leftist newspeak for illegal aliens. In fact, Moonbeam has declared the entire place to be a “sanctuary state.” Of course, there is no sanctuary for the dwindling number of working class US citizens who still live here. The large cities, the Legislature, and the Governor’s office are all dominated by Demoncraps, meaning communists, meaning fascists. Recently, the State even appointed an illegal alien “Dreamer” to head (paid for by the few remaining taxpayers) something called the “California Student Opportunity and Access Program Project Grant Advisory Committee.” Wow. That’s a mouthful. The leftists do have a way with words. Let me guess…this agency will probably give huge educational grants to illegal aliens. Aside from the lying clowns in the Legislature, the critters we can thank for all this enlightenment include, of course, Moonbeam himself. He is an 80 year old White male (sort of) elected by radical feminists who hate the patriarchy of old, White men. Like most leftists, he was born rich into a kind of political dynasty; his late father, Edmund “Pat” Brown, was also Governor and also a Demoncrap. Of course, Moonbeam has never worked at anything like a real job, even a white collar one, and, like most of his class, he has never dirtied his delicate hands with physical laborthat’s for the deplorables, don’t you know. Most of his life has been in politics; he has been Mayor of Oakland and was previously Governor for a few years before taking a break and then returning to the office…he has, thus far, spent 16 years as Governor and can take credit for much of the (downhill) progress the state has made. Moonbeam had his ticket punched at Yale Law School, like so many of our betters, has fathered no children, and did not marry until age 67. He may or may not be a homosexual, but he is anything but mainstream, and has virtually nothing in common with the little people he rules. He supports the sanctuary state idea, and he and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra have threatened businesses with hefty fines if they cooperate (as required by federal law) with ICE by reporting illegal alien employees. It’s not clear that the state law the business owners would be violating (the Immigrant Worker Protection Act) is even constitutional, but leftists have never let the Constitution get in their way before. Moonbeam has even implied some sanction against any local law enforcement agencies that cooperate with ICE. Moonbeam’s prime henchman in all of this is Xavier Becerra, who is himself Hispanic, because diversity is so important (as long as it isn’t a diversity of thought and opinion). Becerra has announced that he is committed to “protecting California’s immigrant communities” and “vulnerable, undocumented youth.” He just oozes compassion, and supports abortion, including sex-selective abortion (killing girls). If killing babies isn’t compassionate, what is? Needless to say, he has announced his adoration of Glibetts (GLBTs). And that’s about the extent of his tolerance. He mostly lives in Maryland rather than in the “paradise” he has helped create in California. Of the many Demoncrap mayors, Oakland Mayor Elizabeth “Libby” Schaff, a 53 year old attorney (aren’t they all), stands out for warning illegal aliens of impending ICE raids since 2/18 so they can escape or ambush and murder the federal agents. It’s not clear who has leaked the information to her. So all these leftists are bravely standing up to the federal government over the one issue that truly is the prerogative of the feds…immigration. There has been an incremental federalization of laws and law enforcement, all of it championed by the left, despite the fact that our Founding Fathers believed in state sovereignty, meaning that most laws and law enforcement should be left to the states. Not satisfied with violating the federal law that truly should be federal, some of California’s heroic leftists are even championing secession of the state from the US…the Calexit movement. The leader of this movement is one Louis Marinelli, who was born in New York and lives in Russia, which makes about as much sense as Becerra living in Maryland. If we get really lucky, perhaps Moonbeam will move to Central Africa. The Calexit movement has little support, mostly from leftists…despite the fact that leftists have always supported a stronger central government (eventually leading to a world government) and opposed state sovereignty. Like they say, if leftists didn’t have double standards they would have no standards at all. But if Moonbeam and his cronies can disobey federal law, why should California counties and individual citizens obey California law? Already Tehama and Siskiyou counties have voted to disobey Moonbeam and cooperate with ICE. What is Moonbeam going to do…send in the National Guard and wage war against the sheriffs and citizens in those counties? People forget that there is a whole other California away from Sacramento and the coastal urban areas and the extreme south of the state (already in effect conquered by Mexico). Much of the northern part of California, the Central Valley (save for the Capital), and the Sierra Nevada and Cascade Mountains are rural and conservative, inhabited by farmers and ranchers, loggers, miners, and fishermen…you know, people who are actually productive. For many years there has been a movement by people in northern California and southern Oregon to break away from those states and create the new state of Jefferson. Oregon and Washington are both as leftist-dominated as California, but those states, too, especially away from the coast, have many counties inhabited by normal human beings. Why shouldn’t they be free to defy Moonbeam and his equivalents in Oregon and Washington? Why shouldn’t individual citizens in California defy the state’s unconstitutional gun laws? Why should citizens pay taxes to support aid for illegal aliens and cushy salaries for leftist politicians, judges, and bureaucrats? And why should the idea be limited to California and the West Coast? If Trump betrays us or is overthrown, why shouldn’t Texas secede, or, short of secession, simply refuse to obey many federal laws? Maybe Moonbeam is on to something. Be careful what you wish for, Jerry.

Google Busted Again Manipulating Search Results As 'Internet Bill Of Rights' Gains Traction

March 18, 2018 By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine

It will come as no shock to regular readers that big tech is completely out of control, as is social media giants like Twitter and Facebook, as we have been documenting the increasing intensity and frequency of their outright censorship of Independent and conservative websites, videos, and social media posts. While it is not surprising, it is important to document their censorship practices as they find new ways to silence anyone that doesn't promote or conform to their preferred narrative and official spin, because one cannot fight against attacks if they do not see them and where they are coming from. GOOGLE WANTS TO CONTROL WHAT YOU ARE ALLOWED TO SEEE One recent example and proof of Google's censorship practices is highlighted over at Free Thought Project is Google's manipulation of search results, shown in screen shots of keyword searches and the difference in results by Google's search engine in comparison to what is seen using the same keywords using other search engines. While the entire piece is a must-read, the lead-in to the screen shots, along with the images showing the contrast, below: The most striking of these results came when we searched for the words “girl says 3 shooters parkland,” expecting the news footage of an eyewitness from the school saying that there were multiple shooters. On Google this video did not come up, nor did any articles about the statement that the student made to the news, despite the fact that our search was extremely specific. Don’t be fooled by the top article “Calling B.S in Parkland, Florida,” it is an op-ed promoting gun control. gglparkland.jpg Whether one believes the information from the girl in the interview or not, is of no consequence. The fact is she said it, and Google is attempting to prevent anyone from finding something that should be publicly available and easy to find, especially using specific keywords. They are quite literally controlling what people that utilize their services are allowed to see. As ANP has highlighted previously, Google's video platform YouTube has done the exact same thing by removing any videos they do not want users to find, the most recent example was when David Hogg, hailed as the "gun control student activist," was caught practicing his lines and being coached by a CNN reporter. Dozens of copies of that video, if not hundreds, were ruthlessly scrubbed from YouTube's site, with other video platforms being the only places that video can be found and shown to the general public. Now we learn that Google's YouTube will be adding "information cues," alongside videos they determine are "conspiracy." Those will contain links to what Google deems a "fact based" website to counter the information contained within the video in questions. Via Vigilant Citizen: After demonetizing thousands of channels (many of which were “truther” and “conspiracy”-related), YouTube is now taking further steps to fight undesirable videos. YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki announced this week that the video platform will soon begin displaying links to “fact-based” sites alongside conspiracy videos. Called “information cues”, these snippets of information will link to “reputable” articles in order to combat “hoaxes” and “fake news” stories (gotta use lots of quotation marks to highlight mass media’s biased vocabulary). Here’s how it will work: If you search and click on a conspiracy theory video about, say, chemtrails, YouTube will now link to a Wikipedia page that debunks the hoax alongside the video. A video calling into question whether humans have ever landed on the moon might be accompanied by the official Wikipedia page about the Apollo Moon landing in 1969. Wojcicki says the feature will only include conspiracy theories right now that have “significant debate” on the platform. “Our goal is to start with a list of internet conspiracies listed on the internet where there is a lot of active discussion on YouTube,” Wojcicki said at SXSW. – Wired, YouTube Will Link Directly to Wikipedia to Fight Conspiracy Theories We have to address the lack of intelligence in the decision of Google to use Wikipedia as a primary source of debunking or verifying anything. They are handy sometimes for quotes or sourcing to find original sources of information, usually more so when it is an uncontroversial topic, but on their own page they admit "While some articles are of the highest quality of scholarship, others are admittedly complete rubbish." They state on that same page "since Wikipedia can be edited by almost anyone anytime, articles may be prone to errors, including vandalism." They also advise readers "please do not use Wikipedia to make critical decisions." HUGE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 'CONSPIRACY' AND A HOAX Please note how Google is attempting now to not only determine what is a "conspiracy," but how they are treating conspiracy theories as hoaxes or fake news. That is a very dangerous game to play, because a hoax is something put out that deliberately offers outright fake information to mislead people, where a "conspiracy," is questioning the official narrative. The CIA actually started pushing the "conspiracy theory" label as an attempt to discredit anyone that does question the official narrative. The fact is many "conspiracy theories" have later been proven to be true. One memorable example was how the MSM labeled Tea Party and Patriot groups "conspiracy theorists," when they accused the Obama administration and the IRS of targeting them due to their political ideology. Years after they were falsely labeled as conspiracy nuts, IRS official Lois Lerner publicly apologized for targeting Tea Party and patriot groups unfairly. Other "conspiracies" that were discovered years later to be true include, but are not limited to: MKUltra and their CIA mind control program; Bohemian Grove, where the rich and powerful go to misbehave; the CIA funding the Dalai Lama to undermine the Chinese Government; President Lincoln's assassination had multiple co-conspirators; The CIA's fake vaccination program; Operation Mockingbird - The CIA's control over the mainstream media; Operation Paperclip: The Secret Intelligence Program to Bring Nazi Scientists to America. Those are just a few examples of the many "conspiracies" that were later proven true. They also offer one of the biggest reasons why Google/YouTube, social media giants and big tech's censorship of any news that doesn't fit the official narrative is doing a massive disservice to all internet users, because any current "conspiracy" that later proves to have been true, means that it is Google/YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and other big tech companies that will, in fact, have been pushing "fake news," by automatically declaring them false, rather than treating them as simply questioning the official, approved narrative. RECOMMENDATIONS TO FIGHT INTERNET CENSORSHIP As always we would like to provide options, a way Internet users can fight back against this type of censorship. While we are encouraged that the idea of an "Internet Bill of Rights," is gaining traction to prevent big tech and others from discriminating and censoring Independent News and views and questions, things like that could take years to fully implement and enforce, and we need options now. Another form of censorship by Google has been Adsense program where publishers like ANP has seen the same amount of ads, the regular off-presidential election year drop of traffic, maybe 15 percent, yet the revenue has dropped by nearly 80 percent in comparison to what was brought in before the 2016 election. This has been noted by the majority of conservative or Independent News sites that supported Donald Trump in 2016. Independent Media Publishers: We can now comfortably vouch for a new ad service, Commodity Ad Network, that is geared toward Independent Media websites, as their first payment not only came in on schedule but was the exact amount their dashboard indicated throughout the first month, which doubled with one single ad, the pittance brought in by Google Adsense with three ads. They offer one banner ad per page. (Note- If after the first three months with Commodity, these numbers continue at this rate, ANP will be able to remove at least one Google ad, perhaps two. The ultimate goal is to be in a position where we can remove all three.) Independent Media sites can join here to start their way toward independence from Google. Future phases will include a social media platform, a search engine geared for Independent Media sites, and a video platform to replace YouTube, all without censorship. Another service run by people that believe in free speech and do not censor Independent News websites is Revcontent. Native ads, they pay on time, and require no contracts, and publishers are paid the next billing cycle. Advertisers: With Google manipulating search results, downranking conservative and Independent Media sites in their results, any drop in organic traffic means that advertisers are not receiving the amount of traffic they could be getting, since Google is blocking them from whole segments of the Internet. Google is also limiting what ads are being seen on those sites, which also damages advertisers that want their ads shown everywhere as part of their advertising goals. Being a new startup, Commodity Ad Network can offer those advertisers being harmed by Google's censorship practices, a whole new audience that Google is preventing them from reaching. Advertisers can join Commodity Ad Netwrok here. Search Engine Alternatives: For internet users that want to get the results they are searching for, rather than the result Google wants them to get, here are links to DuckDuckGo, Bing, Yahoo, Ask, StartPage by IxQuick. We highly recommend testing them all, then finding a favorite and setting it as their default search engine. Video Alternatives to YouTube: While it is still hard to find exactly what is needed in an embeddable format at the smaller start-ups, there are a number of things in the works. Social media website Gab just started their own Gab TV, where content creators can upload videos, with pro-members being able to livestream, without censorship. As of now there are no options to embed on external websites. D.Tube is another option, though they do need to work on their search functionality and streamline the joining process, they do offer videos that can be embedded. Vimeo is a service that does offer embed codes for websites that use clips. Natural News' Mike Adams has also announced a project called Real.Video, which will work differently than most video platforms and users can request an invite here. BitChute has seen a recent uptick of YouTube content creators who see the writing on the wall as Google's YouTube continues to purge accounts as part of their censorship agenda. BitChute does not offer embed codes at this time either. Social Media: After the massive Twitter lockout of conservatives, and the continued censorship practices by Twitter, with shadow bans, limiting the ability to share content that Twitter doesn't approve of, Gab.ai has seen tremendous growth in 2018. While the mainstream media continues to claim Gab is for the "alt-right," we have noted political ideologies from across the spectrum and they don't censor the left or the right. So far, they seem to truly be one of the few truly "free speech" social media sites. BOTTOM LINE The relentless attack on Independent Media sites, specifically those that supported Donald Trump for president in the 2016 presidential election cycle, continued not only unabated, but has consistently increased in intensity. Many Independent Media sites have started moving toward ad services geared to fairness in an attempt to generate enough revenue to first blunt the impact, then reverse the trend in order to be in a position to start removing ads from services that do censor and downrank Independent voices to punish them for their political leanings. Alternative social media platforms are seeing major increases just by offering true free speech. Video platforms are being created to offset Google/YouTube's censorship. Bottom line, things are looking up and moving at a rapid pace to prevent big tech from silencing our online voices.

CALEXIT’s Plan to Use the Kigali Principles to Break Apart the United States

By Dave Hodges

In Part One of this series, I noted how the Deep State has lost control of the country and many of the federal agencies that they once controlled. After years of controlling nearly every major federal agency, each department’s Deep State operatives are in panic mode. From discussions with two confidential and trusted sources as well as with Paul Preston, there is a clear picture that is emerging.  The Original Deep State Plan Designed to Bring About the Demise of the United States CALEXIT, it has always been about Calexit as the primaary way to break up the United States. The Deep State cannot count on the participation of the United States military in a coup against the elected government, even if Hillary Clinton had become the Commander-In-Chief. With the candidacy of the Donald Trump picking up steam in 2016, the Deep State and the globalists forged a joint plan to takeover the United States by inciting domestic unrest and then bringing in the United Nations to take control of the country under the guise of providing humanitarian aid. This plan was the brainchild of the globalists who were afraid of losing control of the United States because of the rising tide of populism. California was chosen as ground zero to act out the new United Nations policies called the Kigali Principles. These priniciples were negotiated with the United Nations by Samantha Powers on behalf of Obama and the Deep State. This conspiracy consisted of the following sequential actions which were to be carried out: Create massive domestic unrest in California stemming from CALEXIT and the absolute defiance federal authority which would cause the federal government to bring in its own peacekeeping force. Import massive amounts of MS-13 and ISIS operatives to form a 5th column headquartered in California but the subsequent and planned unrest would reach across the nation. For example, Minnesota talk show host, Kathy Rubio stated on The Common Sense Show that MS-13 had a massive presence in the Twin Cities after receiving paramilitary training in El Salvador. When violence breaks out, it will begin in California, but the rest of the country will be consumed by violence, all of which is designed to result in a United Nations intervention. California, by plan, would descend into absolute violence which is why the aforementioned terrorists were brought into the country in 2014 during the so-called Central American immigration invasion. I documented the increased presence and admittance of MS-13 into the US and this was made possible by a United Nations/DHS joint operation. Let nature take its course and then bring in the United Nations to subdue America. In Part Three, I will present the complete operational plan. ‘ There is no doubt that some will call this crazy conspiracy nonsense. Therefore, it is necessary to bring in the undeniable documentation with regard for the United Nations to spring into action and takeover this country by using a 29 nation security force headed by the Communist Chinese. Obama Gave Away the Sovereignty of the US In May 2016, the Obama administration approved a set of principles that gave permission for UN peacekeeping troops AND POLICE to use force to “protect” citizens in armed conflicts. The Blue Helmets of the United Nations are coming, and the American police force could now be a part of a global police force. And this police force will be brutal. The Constitution of the United States will no longer be in effect. In fact, in this scenario, we will soon discover the true purpose of the “snatch and grab” of the NDAA. The following is a word-for-word excerpt of what the United States and other member UN nations agreed to. This is a partial document which Obama agreed to which allowed UN troops to come on to American soil and initiate “policing activities”. I have discussed this before in previous articles and people are highly skeptical. Therefore, I have decided to include excerpts of the UN’s Kigali Principles which will put UN troops on American soil in times of trouble. The interesting thing to note is that the Trump administration does not have to approve the United Nations entering the United States. Obama has already guaranteed the UN that right and the right is irrevocable in the mind of the United Nations. U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power told a high-level U.N. meeting Wednesday focusing on the responsibility to protect civilians that the United States was “proud” and “humbled” to join 28 other countries that have pledged to abide by the 18 pledges. U.N. peacekeepers from these 29 countries are now required to act in cases where civilians are in danger. “The Kigali Principles are designed to make sure that civilians are not abandoned by the international community again,” she said, recalling how U.N. peacekeepers left Rwanda before the 1994 genocide and Srebrenica before the 1995 massacre. CONCEPT NOTE The Future of Civilian Protection in Peace Operations Endorsing and Implementing the Kigali Principles May 11th 2016, UNHQ NY Context

Protection of Civilians (PoC) in armed conflict is at the core of the work of the UN. It is a key responsibility for members of the international community. Since the genocides in Rwanda and Srebrenica, the United Nations has taken steps to ensure that peacekeeping is made more effective. Still, challenges in a range of conflict situations remain enormous. Peacekeepers are increasingly called upon to uphold the international community’s responsibility to protect civilians from mass atrocities. The tremendous suffering by civilians in armed conflict can be seen on a daily basis on your newsfeed; it is reflected in the morbid statistics of civilian deaths in conflict situations around the globe. In his latest report on the Protection of Civilians in Armed Conflict issued in June 2015, the Secretary General draws the attention of the Security Council to the deliberate targeting and indiscriminate attacks on civilians that have become a recurrent feature in many conflicts, resulting in increased levels of civilian casualties, displacement, and human suffering. The report highlights the challenges faced by humanitarian organizations to meet basic needs, including access restrictions and direct attacks against humanitarian personnel, supplies and facilities. The Secretary-General noted that prevailing disrespect for international humanitarian law by some States and non-State armed groups, and pervasive impunity for violations, have become “one of the most critical challenges for the protection of civilians.” In an unprecedented joint appeal on 31 October 2015, the Secretary-General and the President of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) condemned the growing lack of respect for international humanitarian law and the decline in protection of civilians in many conflicts. Together the Secretary-General and ICRC President urged States to make every effort, individually and collectively, to achieve political solutions to conflicts, exert their influence to ensure compliance with international humanitarian law, hold perpetrators of violations accountable, grant unhindered access to and protect humanitarian and medical personnel and facilities, and respond to the needs of internally-displaced persons and refugees. On May 28-29, 2015, Rwanda organized a High-level International Conference on the Protection of Civilians in Kigali in the run-up to the Leaders’ Summit on UN Peacekeeping. During that conference, Rwanda presented the Kigali Principles on PoC. A year later several countries have endorsed the principles. More are to follow. The Kigali Principles set out critical benchmarks for Member States to guide collective efforts in improving the capacity of peace operations to protect civilians. This event welcomes those that are ready to join the signatories of the Kigali Principles to do so in a public ceremony. The High-level Independent Panel on Peace Operations (HIPPO) report launched in June 2015 also contains valuable recommendations to the UN and its Member States regarding PoC. A closer look at how these recommendations are being implemented is timely. This event will address the state of play of the main recommendations and the Secretary-General’s reaction to it. There is also a need to pay special attention to the negative impact of misconduct by peacekeepers. The Report of an Independent Review of Sexual Exploitation and Abuse by International Peacekeeping Forces in the Central African Republic of December 17th 2015 illustrates the vulnerability of the actions by a few individuals that have a huge negative impact on the reliability of UN peacekeepers as a whole and additionally inflicts a huge reputational damage to the UN. The UN Security Council has taken steps to prevent and combat sexual exploitation and abuse by UN peacekeepers by adopting resolution 2272 on 11 March 2016. The High-Level Event of the UNGA on “The strengthening of the UN in international peace and security” forms the context in which this event takes place. High level participation from Member States, the UN as well as relevant think tanks and NGO’s will ensure an event that will take the commitment to PoC one step further towards implementation. On the basis of questions from the moderator, panelists will make practical recommendations to Troop Contributing Countries (TPP), the UN and other actors on the protection of civilians in armed conflict. Objectives/desired outcomes · More UN Member States join the current signatories of the Kigali Principles in endorsing these principles · The interactive discussion is an opportunity for Troop and Police Contributing Countries (TCC/PCCs) and other Member States to reflect on the Kigali Principles and consider how their implementation can best contribute to future efforts to uphold civilian protection mandates. It is also an opportunity to better understand the current and emerging challenges TCC/PCCs face with regard to protecting civilians. Member States are encouraged to base their interventions on the following questions relating to civilian protection and linked to the spirit of the Kigali Principles:

o The decision to ‘open the gates’ to civilians fleeing violence in South Sudan saved thousands of lives. However, UNMISS faces considerable challenges and pressures in providing ongoing security to civilians still taking refuge inside the POC sites. What can be done to provide security in POC sites and address internal and external security issues? o Sometimes peacekeepers have decided not to intervene to protect civilians who are under attack just outside their bases or they have retreated from areas rather than confronting approaching armed groups. This can be caused by a lack of clarity regarding the rules of engagement. How can TCC/PCCs achieve better clarity on the use of force to protect civilians (e.g. through better guidance or training)? o How can the UN strengthen its monitoring and evaluations of troops and police in the field and prevent such protective failures? o While civilians still bear the brunt of armed conflict there has been an alarming increase in deliberate attacks against peacekeepers. What can be done to enhance safety and security for uniformed personnel? o Following the pledges made at the September Peacekeeping Summit, what resource and capabilities gaps still exist specifically as it relates to protection of civilians? How successful has phased mandating been in narrowing the gap between expectations and capacities? Using the Kigali Principles as a foundation, concrete recommendations will be drafted on how Member States and the UN can improve their roles in protecting civilians…. The Kigali Principles were rehearsed, in part, during Jade Helm 16 (ie UWEX 16). One may wish to use the search engine on The Common Sense Show in order to discover how the Obama administration practiced military manuevers against “rogue and former US military personnel who were operating in a guerrilla war status”. Foreign troops were used in conjuction with the simultaneously release of the Kigali Principles. The following was Obama’s parting gift to President elect Donald Trump. From the United States Institute of Peace: “Implementing the ‘Kigali Principles‘ for Peacekeeping. … While they are framed around the protection of civilians, the responsible implementation of the Principles would address much broader challenges that undermine the effectiveness of peacekeeping operations conducted in volatile situations. December 14, 2016 This was the complete giveaway of American sovereignty by former President Obama and Secretary of State, John Kerry. Beta-Testing the Kigali Principles I apologize for the cumbersome nature of this revelation. However, past reaction has dictated that nothing be left to chance when demonstrating the intent of the United Nations with regard to entering the United States with deadly force. The Kigali Principles have already been established as a precedent by the Cook County Commissioners in Illinois as they participated in a Beta test of UN authority to act under the conditions set forth in this agreement. On December 14, 2017, The Chicago Tribune reported the following: President Donald Trump’s implicit threat to put the National Guard on the streets of Chicago to tackle the city’s violence problem attracted widespread ridicule earlier this year. But if the soldiers were instead wearing the sky blue helmets of United Nations peacekeepers there might not be such a problem, according to Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin, who flew to New York on Thursday to discuss what he described as a “quiet genocide” in Chicago’s black community with the U.N.’s assistant secretary-general for peacebuilding support, Oscar Fernandez-Taranco. “The United Nations has a track record of protecting minority populations,” Boykin told Inc. before his meeting. “There was tribal warfare between the Tutsis and the Hutus in Africa, and they deployed peacekeeping troops there to help save those populations and reduce the bloodshed. We have to do something — black people in Chicago make up 30 percent of the population but 80 percent of those who are killed by gun violence.” Asked how that might differ from sending in the National Guard, Boykin said, “The difference is, I’m not so sure that the National Guard is so used to peacekeeping and a peacekeeping role: The U.N. is trained in this.” Newswire quoted The Common Sense Show reaction to this development: Newsire quoted The Common Sense Show when they quoted myself on this matter as they stated Hodges wrote about this just yesterday, in fact, saying: For years, The Common Sense Show has been diligent in exposing the existence of UN troops on US soil who are simply waiting for a pretext to emerge and enforce martial law as the opening salvo for the takeover of America… The Common Sense Show has learned from a previously utilized and high ranking and well–placed source, that occupation troops of the United Nations, stationed in Chicago plan to use the extreme tenets for the NDAA to indefinitely detain, without due process that they arbitrarily deem to be a potential problem. The list of detainees WILL NOT be confined to armed gangsters who are creating mayhem and murder in Chicago. The list of permanent detainees may include members of the Deep State opposition. O December 19, 2017, Newswire properly gave credit to myself and Steve Quayle for noting the presence of UN troops on US soil just waiting for the right moment to act. For the record, independent media journalists Dave Hodges and Steve Quayle have been warning about UN troops being unleashed on U.S. soil for many years. And for doing so, they have been derided as conspiracy theorists and lunatics…. Yet here we have an open admission by a Chicago Democrat that this is precisely the plan. It’s no longer just a theory. It’s an admission of the plan. It should be noted that Steve Quayle along with myself have taken tremendous criticism for our unwavering position that there were UN troops on US soil just waiting for the right opportunity to act. Well, they now have the right situation. Remember, CALEXIT in its final phase was to revert to being a protectorate of the United Nations. Conclusion The Cook County event was the Beta-test for the implementation of the Kigali Principles. This event was met with strong opposition. However, and no matter how unpopular the Kigali roll-out may have been in Chicago, the CALEXIT forces, dominated by the Deep State, have no choice but to implement them because if they are not successful in breaking apart the United States, these Deep State operatives are all headed to prison. In Part Three, the operational plan for CALEXIT and the breakup of the United States will be exposed.

Former Asst. FBI Director: Brennan and Obama were Committing Felonies… Not General Flynn (VIDEO)

March 18, 2018 by Jim Hoft

Former FBI Assistant Director James Kallstrom told Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures that there was likely a “big sign of relief” after Andrew McCabe was fired on Friday. Kallstrom went on to tell Maria Bartiromo that John Brennan and Barack Obama were the ones who committed the felonies and not General Flynn. James Kallstrom: My sources tell me [Brennan] was leaking almost weekly or daily, and he was taking that bunch of phony crap supposedly from Russia, and peddling that through the Congress and the media, he was one of the active people. I’ve known him a long time and I think he’s involved, and quite frankly, I think it goes right to the top, quite frankly. Maria Bartiromo: To President Obama? James Kallstrom: It goes right to the top, and it involves that whole strategy. They were going to win [the 2016 election], nobody would ever know this stuff, and they just unleashed the intelligence community. Look at the unmaskings? We haven’t even heard about that yet. Look at the way they violated the rights of these American citizens?… I hope Gen. Flynn sues a lot of people, because he was handled so bad… He didn’t lie to the FBI. They didn’t even interview him about a crime. They are the people who committed felonies, not the General.

In Rare Interview Kim Dotcom Says Obama-Jarrett are Directing Shadow Government From Their DC Bunker (VIDEO) March 18, 2018 by Jim Hoft

Kim DotCom spoke out against the Deep State in a rare interview this week. The YouTube video is going viral and was promoted by Julian Assange. This is an excellent, popular video on the deep state https://t.co/2AIzcDJaRJ  @KimDotcom — Julian Assange ⌛ (@JulianAssange) March 18, 2018

Kim DotCom believes Barack Obama and Valerie Jarrett are running a shadow government against the Trump administration from their DC bunker. Kim DotCom: what’s obvious here is there is a hidden agenda there’s somebody driving the Senior Executive Service and it appears at this time that that’s parked about two miles down from the White House in that bunker that Barack Obama built with Valerie Jarrett… The Senior Executive Service seems to have been put in place to stop any kind of effectiveness within the elected group of people that the people put in place. And it’s apparent with the current president that these people are pulling in another direction. Kim DotCom said 25% of the Democratic candidates in the 2018 election are intelligence community members, “Because the Deep state realizes we can no longer rely on our puppets.” This is a fascinating video – take from it what you will.

 Ezekiel 38:1-8
1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:
5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.
7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.
8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.  (KJV)

'Army of Islam' would be world's biggest military

Turkey hints at forming 5-million-strong alliance against Israel

Published: 2 days ago

WASHINGTON – When Turkey’s semi-official newspaper Yeni Şafak called for urgent action in forming a 57-nation “Army of Islam” to besiege and attack Israel, a suggestion undoubtedly approved with at least a wink and nod by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, it would signal the possible intent to create the largest military force on the planet – one nearly as large as the total population of the Jewish state. The report came just ahead of the summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and was published under the headline “What if an Army of Islam was formed against Israel?” It was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute. But it wasn’t a rhetorical question. It was actually a suggestion to combine the military forces of all Islamic countries to overwhelm the Israeli army in manpower, budget and equipment – even boasting with statistics. What do YOU think? Will Muslims join to create an ‘Army of Islam’? Sound off in the WND Poll On Dec. 12, 2017, ahead of the summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Istanbul, the Turkish daily Yeni Şafak, which is close to Erdoğan and his ruling AKP party, published an article titled “A Call for Urgent Action,” which also appeared on the paper’s website under the title “What If an Army of Islam Was Formed against Israel?” The article called on the 57 member states of the OIC to form a joint “Army of Islam” to besiege and attack the state of Israel. It notes that such a joint army will greatly exceed the Israeli army in manpower, equipment and budget, and presents statistics to prove this. It also advocates establishing joint bases for the army’s ground, air and naval forces that will arrive from all over the Muslim world to besiege Israel, while noting that Pakistan, as the only nuclear country, has “a special status” among the OIC countries. An interactive map provides information on military forces stationed in various locations and the role they can play in the potential joint Muslim attack on Israel. Much of the information in the article was provided by Turkey’s SADAT International Defense and Consulting Company, which provides consultancy on defense and warfare, both conventional and unconventional, and on military organization, training and gear. The company promotes pan-Islamic military cooperation. According to its mission statement, it seeks “to establish defense collaboration and defense industry cooperation among Islamic countries, to help the Islamic world take its rightful place among the superpowers by providing … strategic consultancy and training services to the militaries and homeland security forces of Islamic countries.” The SADAT company was founded by Erdoğan’s senior adviser on military affairs, retired Gen. Adnan Tanrıverdi, and is chaired by his son, Melih Tanrıverdi. Adnan Tanrıverdi served in the Turkish army’s artillery corps and is an expert on asymmetric warfare. He was dismissed from the Turkish military in 1996 for his Islamist leanings. In the report, Israel is described as “the outpost of the new Crusade and a dagger in the heart of Islam,” and “the eyes, ears and fist of the Christian World.” “If the OIC member states unite and form a joint military force, it will be the largest army in the world,” the newspaper report said. “These countries’ total population is 1,674,526,931. The number of soldiers in active service in these countries is at least 5,206,100. Their [overall] military defense budget, of $174.7 billion, is also worthy of emphasis.” It continues by contrasting the size of this potential Islamic force with Israel’s military capabilities. “As for Israel, it is significantly inferior,” the report said. “The population of this country, which attempted to occupy Jerusalem while surrounded by Muslim states, is 8,049,314. Note that the population of Istanbul alone exceeds 14 million. The number of soldiers in active service in the [Israeli] occupation forces is 160,000, and [Israel’s] defense budget is approximately $15.6 billion. The report suggested the formation of a “Jerusalem Task Group” to take steps to form an Islamic army that would besiege Israel. “In a possible military operation, the first step is expected to involve 250,000 soldiers, and the establishment of joint land, air and naval bases for use in the short term,” explained the report. It would include the mobilization of 500 tanks and armored vehicles, 100 war planes, 500 attack helicopters and 50 warships and submarines. Interactive maps provided information on specific bases and operations against Israel. “Turkey will serve as an important headquarters during the operation, due to its land, air and naval infrastructures,” the report continued. “The Turkish army, which carried out ‘Operation Euphrates Shield’ [in Syria in 2017] with great success, is now ranked the world’s seventh strongest army, and the second largest army among the NATO powers. Turkey has approximately 4,000 tanks and 1,000 war planes and other aircraft. Its navy made significant progress during the last years, with 194 vessels at its disposal.” The report also noted Pakistan, with its nuclear arsenal, “has important status among the 57 Muslim countries.” In a statement, Malaysian Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein described President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital as a blow to Muslims, and added: “The Malaysian armed forces are ready to fulfill their duty regarding Jerusalem.”

Edward Snowden: Facebook Is A Surveillance Company Rebranded As "Social Media"

by Tyler Durden Mon, 03/19/2018 - 11:00

NSA whistleblower and former CIA employee Edward Snowden slammed Facebook in a Saturday tweet following the suspension of Strategic Communication Laboratories (SCL) and its political data analytics firm, Cambridge Analytica, over what Facebook says was imporoper use of collected data. In a nutshell, in 2015 Cambridge Analytica bought data from a University of Cambridge psychology professor, Dr. Aleksandr Kogan, who had developed an app called "thisisyourdigitallife" that vacuumed up loads of information on users and their contacts. After making Kogan and Cambridge Analytica promise to delete the data the app had gathered, Facebook received reports (from sources they would not identify) which claimed that not all the data had been deleted - which led the social media giant to delete Cambridge Analytica and parent company SCL's accounts. “By passing information on to a third party, including SCL/Cambridge Analytica and Christopher Wylie of Eunoia Technologies, he violated our platform policies. When we learned of this violation in 2015, we removed his app from Facebook and demanded certifications from Kogan and all parties he had given data to that the information had been destroyed. Cambridge Analytica, Kogan and Wylie all certified to us that they destroyed the data.” -Facebook Of note, Cambridge Analytica worked for Ted Cruz and Ben Carson during the 2016 election before contracting with the Trump campaign. Cruz stopped using CA after their data modeling failed to identify likely supporters. Cambridge Analytica has vehemently denied any wrongdoing in a statement. In response to the ban, Edward Snowden fired off two tweets on Saturday criticizing Facebook, and claimed social media companies were simply "surveillance companies" who engaged in a "successful deception" by rebranding themselves. Edward Snowden @Snowden Facebook makes their money by exploiting and selling intimate details about the private lives of millions, far beyond the scant details you voluntarily post. They are not victims. They are accomplices. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/17/us/politics/cambridge-analytica-trump-campaign.html  …

PRISM's existence was leaked by Edward Snowden before he entered into ongoing asylum in Moscow. Microsoft was the first company to join the PRISM program. The NSA has the ability to pull any sort of data it likes from these companies, but it claims that it does not try to collect it all. The PRISM program goes above and beyond the existing laws that state companies must comply with government requests for data, as it gives the NSA direct access to each company's servers — essentially letting the NSA do as it pleases. -The Verge After PRISM's existence was leaked by Snowden, the Director of National Intelligence issued a statment which stated that the only people targed by the programs are "outside the United States," and that the program "does not allow" the targeting of citizens within US borders. In 2006, Wired magazine published evidence from a retired AT&T communications technician, Mark Klein, that revealed a secret room used to "split" internet data at a San Francisco office as part of the NSA's bulk data collection techniques used on millions of Americans. During the course of that work, he learned from a co-worker that similar cabins were being installed in other cities, including Seattle, San Jose, Los Angeles and San Diego, he said. The split circuits included traffic from peering links connecting to other internet backbone providers, meaning that AT&T was also diverting traffic routed from its network to or from other domestic and international providers, Klein said. -Wired "They are collecting everything on everybody," Klein said.

Exclusive: GOP Leadership Is Going To Fund Sanctuary Cities

Robert Donachie Capitol Hill and Health Care Reporter 10:45 AM 03/16/2018

Republican leadership is going to fund sanctuary cities in the must-pass spending bill next week, giving Democrats a huge victory while simultaneously undercutting conservatives who put them in power, a senior GOP aide told The Daily Caller News Foundation. WATCH, DONACHIE WALKS YOU THROUGH THE CONSEQUENCES OF THIS BILL: “House and Senate leadership has rolled over and played dead on border security. When it comes to a border wall, they say it is not our problem. When it comes to funding sanctuary cities, they say it is not our problem. What they are essentially saying is we are going to pass bills with more Democrats than Republicans,” the aide told TheDCNF.This is a sign to administration that leadership doesn’t care what the White House wants. Even though GOP members ran on these issues. Conservatives mean it. The administration means it.” The White House is arguably more serious about immigration policy than any other campaign promise President Donald Trump made in 2016. Within his first few weeks in office, Trump signed an executive order in January 2017 to strip federal grants from cities that harbor illegal immigrants. A federal judge blocked the president’s move that November, arguing that the administration did not have the legal authority to cut funding that Congress had already appropriated. The battle between the administration and federal courts is still ongoing, but Congress has the means to end the debate, given that it has the “power of the purse.” Conservatives in Congress, along with administration officials, are currently lobbying leadership to stop funding sanctuary cities. The argument is if Congress stops appropriating the money for these federal grants in the spending bill, the court’s claim is undercut and the administration and Republicans could claim a victory. The government shelled out roughly $27 billion in federal grants in 2016 alone, according to American Transparency. The president himself called on Congress March 10 to stop giving money to cities outright disobeying federal immigration laws. “I’m calling on Congress to stop funding sanctuary cities so we can save American lives. The funding bill should not give precious can save American lives. The funding bill should not give precious and massive tax payer grants to cities aiding and abetting criminals,” Trump said at the rally for failed Republican congressional candidate Rick Saccone. “It’s what they do.” Funding sanctuary cities is not the only thing that will rile up conservatives in the omnibus bill, which lawmakers must agree on by the hard March 23 deadline. Early drafts of the spending bill, which are being kept under “lock and key,” a GOP aide told TheDCNF, include Planned Parenthood funding, Obamacare subsidies, gun control legislation, a large tax on internet sales, and a host of other policies completely against Republican campaign promises. “This is why guys like Rick Saccone lose. The expectations for Republicans to maintain control ought to be very low. Republicans want to run on this platform of tax cuts and ‘my name is not Nancy (Pelosi),'” national grassroots conservative organization ForAmerica President David Bozell told TheDCNF. “How much currency does the ‘we aren’t Pelosi’ have anymore? This is not 2012. These are base races. You have to have your base energized for you, and giving Democrats everything they want is going to keep base voters at home.”There is nothing preventing Republicans from being on offense on all of the key issues, like immigration, Obamacare, Planned Parenthood — all of them,” Bozell told TheDCNF. “You are talking about trillions of dollars that our representatives are spending under the cover of darkness. Their number one responsibility is to be stewards of taxpayer dollars.” Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s office did not respond to requests for comment as to whether or not leadership is planning on allocating funds for sanctuary cities. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Israel destroys two Hamas tunnels: one in Gaza, one infiltrating Israel

The tunnel’s neutralization, which was accomplished by flooding it with material that prevents Hamas from ever using it again, was an engineering feat led by the Southern Command inside Israel.

By Anna Ahronheim March 18, 2018 11:01

The IDF destroyed two Hamas tunnels late Saturday night, including one that crossed into Israeli territory, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit announced. One tunnel that was identified by the army several weeks ago ran from Rafiah in the southern Gaza Strip into the Eshkol Regional Council inside Israel. “The IDF foiled an attempt by the Hamas terrorist organization to rebuild an offensive terrorist tunnel in Rafiah in the southern Gaza Strip,” IDF Spokesperson Brig.-Gen. Ronen Manelis said. He added that the tunnel had not posed a threat to residents in the area. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the army for destroying the tunnels, saying Israel will continue to act “resolutely” against any attempt to harm Israeli citizens by “systematically” destroying the terrorist tunnel infrastructure. “The time has come for the international community to recognize that the aid money for Gaza gets buried underground,” he stated. One tunnel was destroyed by flooding it with a material that prevents the passageway from being using again. That action was carried out from inside Israeli territory by the Southern Command. “The IDF has acted in its territory and defended its citizens and sovereignty, and while there is no intention to change the security situation, we are ready and prepared for many scenarios,” Netanyahu said. The second underground tunnel, in the Zeitoun area of the Gaza Strip, was destroyed by an Israeli air strike on Saturday night. Several other Hamas targets were also destroyed in retaliation for the placement of explosive devices on the border fence earlier in the day. “It doesn’t matter who placed the IED on the fence,” Manelis said, “Hamas is responsible for everything that goes on in the Strip. Israel will not allow Hamas to use the Gaza fence as a staging ground for attacks.” “Hamas invests enormous resources in building underground terror tunnels instead of investing in the Gaza Strip and providing welfare to its residents. The attempt to rebuild the tunnel shows that Hamas finds it difficult to accept the collapse of the tunnel project and continues to waste the money needed for Gaza residents to breathe,” Manelis stated. The work by the military to locate and destroy terrorist tunnels has “intensified” in the past six months, Manelis continued, adding this was the fourth time a tunnel was destroyed that infiltrated into Israeli territory. Several other underground targets have also been destroyed inside in the Strip. “We again received proof of the IDF’s effectiveness in thwarting the tunnel threat,” said Gadi Yarkoni, the head of Eshkol Regional Council. “The tunnel was located in time and did not pose a threat to our settlements. At the same time, its very existence is reminiscent of the fragile security reality in Eshkol, and we must be ready at any time for an emergency.” In February, the army destroyed another tunnel in the same area which crossed under the Kerem Shalom crossing that borders the Gaza Strip and Egypt’s restive Sinai Peninsula. Israel denied claims that the tunnel was used for smuggling, asserting Hamas intended to use it to bring terrorists and weapons from Egypt into the Gaza Strip for a possible future combined attack on the Kerem Shalom border crossing from the Egyptian side. Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman responded to the incident by saying Israel consistently destroys one Hamas tunnel after another due to quality intelligence and ground-breaking technology. “Those who thought they could hurt us by burrowing underground ran into an iron wall. Hamas has invested millions in their tunnel building project and now they are drowning in sand. I recommend Hamas invest its money into the welfare of its citizens because by the end of this year, its tunnel warfare project will be destroyed.” During the 2014 war, several soldiers were killed by Hamas terrorists who emerged from tunnels dug into Israel by the group, surprising the IDF and leaving residents of border communities concerned over the possibility of tunnels beneath their homes. By the time of the last cease-fire, the IDF said it had destroyed 32 tunnels that crossed beneath the border.

Importing Israeli Natural Gas Makes Sense for Egypt

The deal is politically fraught but could create an energy powerhouse.

by Robin Mills March 19, 2018, 5:00 AM EDT

The discovery of Egypt’s giant Zohr gas field in August 2015 was heralded as the solution to the country’s energy problems. So why did Egypt cut a deal this year to import natural gas from Israel, its former enemy? Dolphinus Holdings, a private Egyptian company, agreed Feb. 19 to buy gas from Noble Energy and its partners from Israel’s two largest offshore fields, Leviathan and Tamar. The controversial accord is but the latest chapter in an Egyptian gas saga that has gone from triumph to tragedy to tentative renaissance. Egypt’s problems with gas were long in the making. In 2006, Petroleum Minister Sameh Fahmy received complaints from oil companies that low regulated gas prices were making new developments unviable, while new industries gobbled up supplies. Investment dried up and production plummeted after the 2011 revolution. The pipelines through Sinai to Israel and Jordan were repeatedly bombed by insurgents and a lack of gas ultimately forced Egypt them to stop deliveries. And the two liquefied natural gas facilities, built by BG (now Shell) at Idku near Alexandria, and Eni at Damietta in the eastern Delta, had to stop exports. Gas cuts to industry, power cuts, and a turn to expensive oil for fuel compounded the country’s economic woes. The government of President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi was able to get a grip on the problem beginning in 2015. It raised the price it was willing to pay for new deep-water gas, trimmed subsidies to consumers, and began liquefied natural gas imports through floating terminals to feed a new set of quickly commissioned power plants and largely end blackouts. LNG purchases were expensive, though, at about $3.55 billion for the 2015-16 fiscal year, accounting for a large slice of Egypt’s $18.7 billion current account deficit. The fast-track development of Zohr, just two and a half years from discovery to first production, reflected the higher price offered for the country’s gas and the urgency from the government. Since then, it and other new fields from Eni and BP have greatly reduced the need for LNG, with expectations that imports will end entirely this year, and that there should be a surplus for export in 2019. Given that, what is the purpose of the Israeli deal? For one thing, Egypt needs to cover for future demand. The rapid decline of its underlying production and the surge in demand from its new power plants means that without new developments it might be a net importer again as early as 2021. It will have to manage its gas demand by turning to solar, wind and coal power, and a Russian-built nuclear power plant set to start only in 2029, if ever. Egypt also wants to become a “gas hub.” This concept allows a country to import, produce, consume and export gas and derive value from shifting between multiple suppliers and customers depending on the best price. The hub goal is strategic too. Getting Eastern Mediterranean gas to market has always been tricky, because of conflicting borders and two major diplomatic hurdles: Turkey’s non-recognition of the (Greek) Republic of Cyprus, and the lack of relations between Israel and Lebanon. On Feb. 23, Turkish warships prevented Eni from drilling a well to the east of Cyprus, claiming that the Turkish Cypriot part of the divided island should also have a say. And domestic political squabbling and indecision in Israel and Lebanon have deterred investors. Local markets in Cyprus, Israel, Lebanon and Jordan are fairly small, meaning that big fields need to supply Turkey, Egypt or more distant consumers. The finds to date, though large, are in deep water, and low gas prices in the past few years have made construction of long-distance pipelines or new liquefaction plants economically marginal. So, a viable export project requires aggregating gas from several rival countries and companies, using a mix of preexisting and new infrastructure. It is not surprising it has taken so long -- and is still shaky. Corporate rivalries also play a part. The Noble consortium faces a new competitor in Israel: the Greek company Energean, which, despite operating smaller fields, has competed aggressively on price, making it hard for the former to aggregate enough sales to go ahead with developing Leviathan. And Eni has just made a large discovery, named Calypso, perhaps as big as Zohr, off the southwestern coast of Cyprus, and would prefer to develop it via the Zohr pipeline and probably take some gas to its Damietta LNG plant. Eni has no particular reason to help the development of Noble’s gas, nor that of the smaller Noble/Shell-owned Aphrodite field, Cyprus’s first find, which is still undeveloped. The prospect of Calypso competition may have forced Noble’s hand in its dealings with Dolphinus. The apparent gas price agreed slightly undercuts that of Zohr. The current deal has attracted furious criticism within Egypt, where opponents of the project are unhappy about buying gas from Israel when their country is supposed to have achieved self-sufficiency. And the parties have not selected an export route: whether to go via Jordan (whose own gas imports from Israel have also attracted protests), to try to resurrect the much-bombed pipeline from Ashkelon to El Arish, or to build a new underwater pipeline bypassing the troubled north Sinai. Between them, Egypt’s two LNG plants can export about 7.5 billion cubic meters of natural gas a year. The agreed Dolphinus supply is 64 billion cubic meters over about a decade, which, if it isn’t required for domestic use, would allow the LNG facilities to operate at near full capacity. Adding Cyprus’s new finds to the mix could keep these plants running even as Egypt’s own demand rises. In 2015-17, Egypt quickly emerged as the largest of a group of new LNG importers. Its return to significant exports would help supply a market which tightened abruptly this winter. Another possibility is a deal with Saudi Arabia, which is short of gas despite its oil wealth, and currently discussing the possibility of LNG imports with Russia. Its robot-run new city of Neom is intended to be in the northwest of the country, adjacent to Jordan, Israel and Egypt. That might be a good spot to import suitably relabeled “Egyptian” gas. If Egyptians can overcome their discomfort at buying from Israel, they have the chance to secure their own future needs, and be the indispensable player in Eastern Mediterranean gas.

BDS

Angel Mas is president of ACOM, an organization fighting the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement in Spain. The views expressed here are his own.

Intersectionality is the unnatural alliance of seemingly incompatible groups that defend contradictory positions. They unite in their common hatred against western democracies and universal values associated with market capitalism, independent courts, parliamentary representation, rule of law, freedom of speech, worship and press and equal rights for all. One of the favorite “soft targets” of intersectionality is Israel, the right of a Jewish State to exist in freedom and security. To this delegitimizing end, neo-Nazis will operate hand in hand with Communists and anarchists, so-called feminists will demonstrate with Salafists, and utterly confused gay rights activists chant jihadi slogans. They say they target Zionists, but we all know they mean Jews. The compulsive obsession that targets one state, the only Jewish state, follows an ignoble tradition of harassment of one easily identifiable minority. Centuries ago, that bias used religion as justification (the people that murdered Christ). Later, nationalism was the excuse (the fifth columnists such as Alfred Dreyfus who betrayed the country, or hidden conspiracies for world domination by the Elders of Zion). The Nazis appealed to pseudo-science (the inferior, perverted race). Now the ancient sickly obsession uses Israel, the hatred against the Jewish State, as a catalyst. Nothing new either in the four Ds that summarise the means of the bigots: Demonize, Delegitimize, Dehumanize and apply Double standards to the national self determination of the Jewish people. That is what epitomizes the Boycott, Divestments and Sanctions movement against Israel. The BDS is a global phenomena that is born from the modern antisemites’ acceptance of the improbability of defeating Israel through military confrontation or terrorist attacks. The objective is the same: the annihilation of the Jewish homeland, “from the river to the sea.” But now, BDS tries to push the international community to condemn Israel as a pariah state and ostracize all those that support her: Zionists. Jews. BDS in Spain The delegitimizers, as old-time bigots, mask their thuggery, presenting themselves as victims and hiding their true intentions. They appeal to public feelings against oppression or abuse and the sympathy for underdogs and suffering minorities. In this global context, what makes the case of BDS in Spain unique? That all that antisemitic bias against a minority in the country is actually exercised from government institutions, by powers of the state. The BDS movement in Spain acquired its current virulence with the emergence of Podemos, a “Chavist” far left party financed by Venezuela and Iran. Podemos won 25 percent of the votes in Spain’s 2015 local elections. Before those elections, BDS was a marginal confederation of small groups focusing on academic and cultural boycotts of Israel. The core group that formed Podemos had been active in the BDS initiatives for years, and hostility against Israel was a top priority in their political agenda. As Podemos gained control of the municipal governments in the main Spanish cities, including Madrid, Barcelona, Zaragoza and Cadiz, the anti-Israel movement had access to multiple economic, human and organizational resources. When those far left groups occupied public institutions, they didn’t distinguish between their own sectarian agenda and the government’s agenda. Local administrations (provincial and municipal) formally joined the BDS movement and declared their territories “free of Israeli apartheid”. In effect, Judenfrei. Stickers were distributed to be exhibited in shops and offices, public companies were instructed not to work with Israeli firms or individuals and Spanish citizens suspected of being associated or sympathetic to the Jewish state were demanded to repudiate it publicly in order not to be excluded from social, political, economic and civic life. Combating the BDS Tide Podemos has driven over 90 such declarations in Spain in jurisdictions covering a population of over eight million people. Its plan was to create an oil spill of hatred reaching the majority of Spain in 18 months. This was an existential threat, and we had to act. But, frankly, not everybody, in Spain, inside the Jewish communities, in the political system, or even in Israel, saw the need for a decisive and urgent response. We, however, thought that underestimating the commitment and determination of our enemies was a mistake and that ignoring the phenomenon would not make it go away. We prioritized the fight against this menace and mobilized resources. We knew we needed a response combining political, media and lawfare initiatives. And we enjoyed the essential support of Jewish organisations in the country for that. ACOM centralized the effort of the response. More by default than by design: we were a public diplomacy group, but had to transform ourselves quickly into a lawfare organisation too. We are not litigious. We prefer to avoid any discrimination over a judicial victory against the boycotters. Political education and a media presence combined with the threat of potential legal initiatives prevented tens of additional boycotts. In that preventive effort, we have activists screening the activities of BDS gangs, their web pages, Twitter and Facebook accounts, distribution lists and chats. Early warning is critical. Many of their resolutions are formulated in secret and pushed forward in expedited votes. We have spent countless hours reaching to decision makers and community leaders who might have been fooled or misinformed. It is important to invest on exposing the true nature and objectives of BDS, and the legal implications of supporting their declarations. But sometimes, all that failed, and antisemitic resolutions are passed. In such a cases our last resort is litigation. It is sad for a minority to feel targeted and victimized by the state that is supposed to protect it. It is discouraging that it falls upon private citizens and organizations — and not the state attorney — to lead the defense against the abuses of public representatives and local institutions. And we learned that, in order to gain attention from our political system and social media, the cases had to be exposed first in the foreign press. The interest demonstrated by reputed international Jewish organisations also focused the attention on the discriminatory resolutions in Spain. No local boycott is too small to go unchallenged. BDS groups carefully manipulate the information reaching political decision makers, spend massive resources on media campaigns and are masters at social media intoxication. In general, pro-Israel groups are lagging behind in the application of analysis and action in those fields. When it comes to the public opinion, we decided to challenge the anti-Israeli narrative and terminology, even if at first it comes as a shock to the audience: generally accepted terms as occupied territories, refugees, or wall puts us immediately at a disadvantage in any debate. We also knew that the anti-Israel gangs hide behind the rhetoric of human rights, appealing to humanitarian ideals, manipulated international law and UN resolutions. We endeavor to present fact and correct the lies. We invest our efforts in exposing the BDS movement’s true ends: not a two-state solution, but the exclusion of one of the parties. Not a peaceful initiative, but one that glorifies violence. It is crucial to insist on the association of BDS with antisemitism and exposing its links to terrorist organizations. Emphasizing those links remain essential, as most BDS funding is public, in deeply rooted schemes with a network of associations and groups. They master the process of accessing state funding at all levels to feed an industry that employs hundreds people and would dwarf any privately sponsored response we put up. Cutting off that funding is key. We have so far obtained over 25 court resolutions against institutional (municipal or provincial) anti-Israel boycotts. The courts agree that local governments have no competence over these matters. More importantly, they also ruled that the boycotts are discriminatory, breaching constitutional principles and fundamental rights. Furthermore, we have moved from defense to offense, increasing deterrence. To end the impunity associated with illegal BDS behavior, there must be consequences: – We will keep on fighting boycott resolutions, but we will look to cut the BDS groups fundingWe are exposing their leaders to the criminal responsibilities associated with promoting hatred and antisemitism in Spain. Some people raise concerns about free speech in our combat to protect our civil rights. We are very clear: everybody, politicians in particular, are entitled to expressing their own opinions — opinions we might not like, or even those we might feel offensive. But institutions are not entitled to incite or discriminate. The state cannot favor or penalize citizens for who they are or what they think. We are not ashamed to demand court protection for that. BDS Fights Back After the initial surprise our vigorous actions created among the delegitimizers (up until then they had been used to social media monologues and boycotting immunity) we assumed they would attempt an aggressive campaign of slander, targeting pro-Israel activists and spreading libels against pro Israel organizations. A few weeks ago, a BDS group presented a criminal claim against ACOM and me. We are accused of illegal association and promotion of hatred. For over 70 pages, the BDS lawyer — formerly convicted on terror charges of cooperation with the ETA — delegitimizes Israel, demonizes its representatives and criminalizes anybody supporting the Jewish state. They paint our request for court protection as intimidation against the discriminators. The mob accuses the victims of mobbing. BDS bullies are offended by the Jewish refusal to accept helplessness. And, finally, BDS argues that our denunciation of the glorification of terrorism and promotion of violence is actually incitement of hatred against all Palestinians. BDS extremists do not tolerate debate and dissent very well. Their totalitarian instinct demands to silence, exclude and ostracize whoever does not submit to BDS imposition. They will bully and intimidate anyone daring to confront them. Those who despise our constitutional freedoms will try to twist those rights to silence a minority and curtail peaceful coexistence. Fighting BDS requires time, effort and resources. But hiding is not an option for us. This is the place where the diaspora contributes to defend the Jewish State, and by doing that, we also defend our rights as citizens of Spain. We were expelled 500 years ago, but that will not happen again. Not under our watch.

Navy Floats Idea of Atheist Chaplains

Tony Perkins · Mar. 16, 2018

If there aren’t atheists in foxholes, why should we put them in the Chaplain Corps? Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS) can’t imagine. Like most leaders, he’s astounded that the Navy is even considering letting someone who doesn’t believe in God join the chaplaincy. Three years ago, the idea was so absurd that even Obama’s military attorneys went to court to stop it. Now, with Secretary Jim Mattis at the helm, no one can quite understand why the topic is even up for discussion. The bizarre story line started in 2015 when Jason Heap tried to sue his way into the chaplaincy. Not surprisingly, the Navy rejected him because he planned to associate with two humanist groups instead of an actual religious denomination. Ultimately, the military ended up in court defending the notion that religious leaders should serve a religious purpose. It won. But this year, Heap is trying again, and according to Sen. Wicker, the Chaplain Appointment and Retention Eligibility Advisory Group is actually recommending the Navy accept him. Wicker, an Air Force veteran and member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, is doing everything he can to keep the application from moving forward. And he’s enlisted 22 other senators and 40-plus House members to help. In two separate letters to Navy Secretary Richard Spencer, both chambers explain how radically this would alter the Chaplain Corps. Obviously, the dozens of leaders explain, no one is saying that atheists don’t belong in the military. But allowing them to serve and allowing them in the pulpit are two different things.The Navy has sufficient authority to create programs for humanist or atheist service members,” the senators write. “The Chaplain Corps is not the appropriate place. The Chaplain Corps serves religious needs, not philosophical preferences. Approving a secular-humanist chaplain would open the door to other applicants representing other philosophical worldviews. Over time, this situation would erode the distinct religious function of the Chaplain Corps.” The idea is even more ridiculous when you consider that barely three percent of our service members even identify as atheist or humanist. To fling open the chaplaincy to any ideology or philosophy would fundamentally change an institution that’s older than the country itself! Not to mention, the House letter reminds the Navy, that “The Department of Defense’s own guidelines also reinforce the uniquely religious purpose of the chaplain corps, defining ‘religious organization’ as ‘an entity that is organized and functions primarily to perform religious ministries to a non-military lay constituency’ and defining a religious ministry professional as ‘an individual endorsed to represent a religious organization and to conduct its religious observances or ceremonies.’” Throughout the years, the Supreme Court has been clear, the House members go on, that “non-religious beliefs may not rely on the Religion Clauses for protection.” Groups like the American Humanist Association, which helped hatch this crazy idea, argue that nonbelievers suffer the same fear and pain that affects every service member. But isn’t that why the military has psychologists? And, as Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA), a reserve Air Force chaplain, pointed out, nothing is stopping atheists from visiting the chaplains who are already available. “No one is arguing that atheists do not have the same First Amendment rights of free expression as their neighbors of Christian, Jewish, Muslim or other faiths,” Wicker explains in a new op-ed on Fox News. “This is not the subject of scrutiny. The central question here is how an atheist chaplain can be expected to fulfill a role that, by its very nature, is supposed to serve the religious needs of our service members.” By definition, a chaplain’s duties are to offer prayer, spiritual counseling, and religious instruction. If that doesn’t disqualify a nonbeliever, I’m not sure what would! The Trump administration inherited plenty of messes from the Obama military — but this isn’t one of them. It’s time for Secretary Mattis to step in and protect the integrity of chaplaincy.

North Korean rockets fitted with nuclear weapons 'can reach central Europe'

The deputy director of Germany's foreign intelligence agency BND says he is 'certain' about Kim Jong Un's military capability. Ole Diehl, deputy director at Germany's foreign intelligence agency BND, apparently told lawmakers in a private meeting that he was "certain" about Kim Jong Un's military capability. But Mr Diehl also insisted the agency saw talks between North and South Korea as a positive sign, according to German newspaper Bild am Sonntag, citing sources. The BND has not commented on the report. A senior North Korean diplomat left for Finland on Sunday for talks with former US and South Korean officials, South Korean media reported. It comes ahead of a possible US-North Korean summit after President Donald Trump agreed to meet Kim Jong Un to discuss North Korea's nuclear disarmament. However intelligence analysts warned this week that North Korea has started testing a nuclear reactor that could be used to produce weapons-grade plutonium. Kim Jong Un is pursuing nuclear and missile programmes in defiance of UN Security Council sanctions and the North has made no secret of its plans to develop a missile capable of hitting the US mainland. The regime defends the programmes as a deterrent against perceived plans for invasion by the United States, which has 28,500 troops in South Korea.

Scientists reach 'significant milestone' in race to create the world's first quantum computer as they discover how to make atoms in silicon 'talk' to each other

Australian scientists figured out how to control quantum bits to make them 'talk'

To do so, they positioned the atoms precisely on a patterned silicon chip

This means the scientists are one step closer to achieving entanglement

Entanglement is an essential step to create a world-beating quantum computer

By Annie Palmer For Dailymail.com Published: 19:09 EDT, 8 March 2018 | Updated: 19:09 EDT, 8 March 2018

Australian scientists are said to have made a breakthrough in quantum computing after they were able to make two atom qubits 'talk' to each other. The study, which was led by researchers from the University of New South Wales, involved creating qubits by precisely positioning individual phosphorus atoms in a silicon chip. Quantum bits, or qubits, are a unit of measure for quantum information. Once positioned, the scientists were able to get the qubits to communicate and correlate with each other. The move is being heralded as a 'significant milestone' in the broader effort to build a world-beating quantum computer. Building a quantum computer has been called the 'space race of the 21st century' – a difficult and ambitious challenge, with the potential to deliver revolutionary tools. The team of researchers, which is led by Australian of the year Michelle Simmons, is the only group in the world that can see the exact position of their qubits, according to a release from the University of New South Wales. 'Our competitive advantage is that we can put our high-quality qubit where we want it in the chip, see what we've made, and then measure how it behaves,' Simmons explained. 'We can add another qubit nearby and see how the two wave functions interact' 'And then we can start to generate replicas of the devices we have created,' she added. The scientists were able to control the interactions between the neighboring qubits, so that they became correlated, or communicated with one another. They did this by placing two qubits 16 nanometers apart in a silicon chip. Using electrodes patterned onto the chip, they were able to control the interactions between the neighboring qubits, so that the 'quantum spins' of their electrons became correlated, said Dr Matthew Broome, a co-author of the study. 'It was fascinating to watch,' Broome explained. 'When the spin of one electron is pointing up, the other points down, and vice versa.' 'This is a major milestone for technology' 'These type of spin correlations are the precursor to the entangled states that are necessary for a quantum computer to function and carry out complex calculations,' he added. WHAT IS A QUANTUM COMPUTER AND HOW DOES IT WORK? The key to a quantum computer is its ability to operate on the basis of a circuit not only being 'on' or 'off', but occupying a state that is both 'on' and 'off' at the same time. While this may seem strange, it's down to the laws of quantum mechanics, which govern the behaviour of the particles which make up an atom. At this micro scale, matter acts in ways that would be impossible at the macro scale of the universe we live in. Quantum mechanics allows these extremely small particles to exist in multiple states, known as 'superposition', until they are either seen or interfered with. A scanning tunneling microscope shows a quantum bit from a phosphorus atom precisely positioned in silicon. Scientists have discovered how to make the qubits 'talk to one another A good analogy is that of a coin spinning in the air. It cannot be said to be either a 'heads' or 'tails' until it lands. The heart of modern computing is binary code, which has served computers for decades. While a classical computer has 'bits' made up of zeros and ones, a quantum computer has 'qubits' which can take on the value of zero or one, or even both simultaneously. One of the major stumbling blocks for the development of quantum computers has been demonstrating they can beat classical computers. Google, IBM, and Intel are among companies competing to achieve this. By enabling the qubits to communicate with each other, the scientists are now one step closer to achieving entanglement, which is essential to building a quantum computer, the Australian Financial Review noted. In the past, theories had predicted that two qubits would have to be placed 20 nanometers apart in order to correlate, Sam Gorman, another co-author of the study, noted. Instead, the scientists only had to place the phosphorous atoms 16 nanometers apart. 'In our quantum world, this is a very big difference,' Gorman explained. 'It is also brilliant, as an experimentalist, to be challenging this theory,' he added. Unlike traditional computers, which are bound to two different states, quantum computers are able to exist in multiple states at once. This allows quantum computers to process information at more than twice the speed and in a far more efficient manner. Seemingly every Silicon Valley giant has put down a stake in the race to create the first quantum computer, including Microsoft, Intel, Google and many others.

DARPA's Human 'Stasis' Program Sounds Like Science Fiction But It Could Save Lives

[HuffPost UK]

Thomas Tamblyn HuffPost UK5 March 2018

The idea of placing humans in stasis is one that has been explored in exhaustive detail through science fiction. Simply put it is the ability to quite literally press pause on our bodies and then wake up at an undefined time in the future. While many (mostly millionaires) have tried and failed to perfect the technology it’s something that the US Military is now taking very seriously. Its top secret research division known as DARPA has confirmed that it is now launching a Biostasis program where it will try to find a way of slowing the human body to an almost complete standstill. Why? Battlefield injuries are some of the most time-sensitive injuries there are as they so often pair both the need immediate attention and a dedicated field hospital. More often than not neither are close at hand, and so for medics who are out on the battlefield, the ability to pause the human body would become an invaluable lifesaving tool. “The Department of Defense refers to this critical, initial window of time as the “golden hour,” but in many cases the opportunity to successfully intervene may extend much less than sixty minutes, which is why the military invests so heavily in moving casualties as rapidly as possible from the battlefield to suitable medical facilities.” explains the proposal.

To solve this problem the program will turn to the humble tardigrade, an almost indestructible creature that has the ability to place itself in stasis allowing it to survive the most extreme environments. While a relatively easy job for the tardigrade, for humans the task is monumental. Not only do you have to find a way of slowing down the body’s cells, but you have to do it in such a way that they’re all slowing down at the same time. As such the program is still in its complete infancy. For now DARPA is only looking for proof-of-concept ideas, it’ll then progress through those ideas for the next five years until it can settle on one method that might work, and even then there’s absolutely no guarantee. If they do pull it off though, it could be the medical discovery of the century.

Hero dog, beaten and shot, protects boy from home invaders

Posted on March 9, 2018 by Dr. Eowyn | 32 Comments

Tracy Bloom reports for KTLA5 that a German shepherd was brutally beaten and shot multiple times while trying to protect his teenage owner, who was home alone when two thieves broke into the family’s residence in Des Moines, Washington. The home-invasion occurred in broad daylight about 12:20 p.m. on a weekday, February 21, 2018, in the 1400 block of South 234th Street. The heroic German Shepherd is appropriately named Rex, which means king. Des Moines Police Department Cmdr. Doug Jenkins said, “A 16-year-old boy who was home alone said he believed someone was breaking in. He heard noises and voices, ran upstairs and hid in closet. He continued relaying everything he heard on the phone with dispatch.” The teen was hiding in a closet with his dog, Rex, when the 2-year-old German shepherd ran downstairs to confront the intruders. The thieves beat the dog, leaving him badly injured. Even after being bloodied and hurt, Rex still had enough strength left to get back to the boy — his best friend — and protect him as the thieves proceeded into the bedrooms, including the one where the boy was hiding. The thieves opened fire, shooting Rex multiple times. He was struck in the neck, leg and knee, yet managed to survive. The boy’s aunt, Susy Cadena, calls Rex a “hero dog” in a GoFundMe page: “As they entered the room where my nephew was hiding in the closet, Rex came out with the little strength he had left in him and threw himself at them as he knew my nephew was in danger. My nephew was protected by his eternal friend until the last bit of strength he had in him to do what his unconditional, loving instinct told him to.” The intruders fled the home as they heard the sound of approaching police sirens. They were gone by the time responding officers arrived at the scene. Rex was taken to an animal hospital in critical condition and was later transported to BluePearl Veterinary Partners. Rex remains in the veterinary intensive care unit, but his condition has since been upgraded to stable. His owners, who have already spent $2,000 on Rex’s medical expenses, are trying to raise funds to pay for the surgery Rex needs to save his life. After just one day, Rex’s GoFundMe had surpassed its goal of $10,000. H/t The Goldwater ~Eowyn

Assault Weapons Preserve the Purpose of the Second Amendment

Banning them would gut the concept of an armed citizenry as a final, emergency bulwark against tyranny. Arguments about guns tend to suffer from two distinct problems. The first — and most obvious — is they quickly get screechy. The arguments devolve into shouting matches and temper tantrums. The goal isn’t to persuade but to mock and bully as if stigma alone can decisively shift the public debate. The second problem occurs when the debate gets too wonky. Charts and graphs fly across Twitter as if fundamental questions about liberty and American society can be answered by the right kind of cross-country comparison with Australia, Great Britain, or Switzerland. When facing the big questions about guns — such as whether America should “ban” an entire category of weapons (such as “assault weapons”) — it’s better, I think, to go back to the first principles embodied in the Second Amendment. At its core, the Amendment protects a person’s individual inherent right of self-defense and empowers the collective obligation to defend liberty against state tyranny. As Justice Scalia noted in District of Columbia v. Heller, this concept was fully embedded in the founding generation: And, of course, what the Stuarts had tried to do to their political enemies, George III had tried to do to the colonists. In the tumultuous decades of the 1760’s and 1770’s, the Crown began to disarm the inhabitants of the most rebellious areas. That provoked polemical reactions by Americans invoking their rights as Englishmen to keep arms. Related articles: What Would Realistically Happen If The US Government Started Seizing All Privately Owned Assault Rifles? SELCO: Types Of Real Survivalists —The Slaves And Servants Were The Most Common Any given gun-control measure must be evaluated against the background of those twin purposes. That’s one reason why statements such as “The Second Amendment was only designed to protect muskets” are so ridiculous. Imagine trying to defend your family with a flintlock pistol. The right of self-defense is best understood as a right of effective self-defense, and the tools for effective self-defense will evolve right along with weapon design and development. Any other conclusion leads to absurd results. Consequently, as the Supreme Court held, the amendment protects weapons “in common use at the time.” This means that if gun-control measures “freeze” the nature and types of guns that are lawful for civilian use, even as broader gun development proceeds apace, there will be an ever-widening gap between the capacity of a criminal to do harm and law-abiding citizens’ ability to protect themselves from that harm. It will also lead to such a yawning gap between citizen and state that private gun ownership no longer provides any meaningful deterrent to tyranny. Similar to Morphine: The Best Natural Painkiller that Grows in Your Backyard Wild Lettuce is also Known as Opium Lettuce. For a good reason. While it doesn’t contain any opiates, it has similar side effects when used – it acts directly on the central nervous system (CNS) to lessen the feeling of pain, just like morphine.

Giving you a quick, easy way to make your own life-saving painkiller, ready for when you need it. Click Here To Discover More. And this brings us to the two favorite targets of those who argue for so-called commonsense gun control — assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. While the term “assault weapon” is vague, we’ll define it as a semi-automatic rifle with cosmetic features similar to military weapons. They’re typically paired with high-capacity magazines. In fact, an “assault weapon” without a high-capacity magazine is little more than a menacing-looking hunting rifle. There are millions of assault weapons in America. The AR-15 is the most popular rifle in the nation. There are tens of millions of high-capacity magazines, and they’re extraordinarily easy to make. Both are unquestionably in “common use.” This means that the foreseeable criminal threat to you or your family comes from a person wielding — at the very least — a semiautomatic pistol with a high-capacity magazine. This is one reason that police typically don’t carry revolvers. Their own weapons of choice have evolved to deal with the threat, and if a person doesn’t “need” a high-capacity magazine to defend himself, then why do the police use them? If I use an AR-15 for home defense, then I possess firepower that matches or likely exceeds (given how rarely rifles are used in gun crimes) that of any likely home intruder. Limit the size of the magazine to, say, ten rounds, and you’ve placed the law-abiding homeowner at a disadvantage. Prohibit them from obtaining a compact, easy-to-use, highly accurate carbine, and you’ve ensured that homeowners will be defending themselves with less accurate weapons. The best weapons “in common use” would be reserved for criminals. This guy did something very sharp and inventive: His cellar had all the benefits of our great-grandparents’ root cellars, the American Army war bunkers, and the secret Viet Cong building method with none of their drawbacks. Watch the video and learn more! Moreover, an assault-weapon ban (along with a ban on high-capacity magazines) would gut the concept of an armed citizenry as a final, emergency bulwark against tyranny. No credible person doubts that the combination of a reliable semiautomatic rifle and a large-capacity magazine is far more potent than a revolver, bolt-action rifle, or pump-action shotgun. A free citizen armed with an assault rifle is more formidable than a free citizen armed only with a pistol. A population armed with assault rifles is more formidable than a population armed with less lethal weapons. The argument is not that a collection of random citizens should be able to go head-to-head with the Third Cavalry Regiment. That’s absurd. Nor is the argument that citizens should possess weapons “in common use” in the military. Rather, for the Second Amendment to remain a meaningful check on state power, citizens must be able to possess the kinds and categories of weapons that can at least deter state overreach, that would make true authoritarianism too costly to attempt. I fully recognize that there are many millions of Americans who flatly disagree with the notion that armed citizens either can or should try to deter tyranny. Either their trust in the government is so complete (or their sense of futility in the face of its armed might so great) that they don’t believe private ownership of weapons is a meaningful check on lawless government action, or they believe that the cost of widespread civilian gun ownership is simply too high to pay in exchange for a theoretical check on state power. That’s a debate worth having — in the context of a long-term progressive effort to repeal the Second Amendment. But for now, the Founders have settled the question. As Justice Scalia ably articulated in Heller, the Second Amendment was designed to protect what Blackstone called “the natural right of resistance and self-preservation.” Without access to the weapons in common use in our time, the law-abiding citizen will grow increasingly — and intolerably — vulnerable to the lawless. Thus, to properly defend life and liberty, access to assault weapons and high-capacity magazines isn’t a luxury; it’s a necessity.

Fukushima eager to get kids in schools

By Masahiro Sakita and Kanako Ichihara / Yomiuri Shimbun Staff WritersIt has been seven years since the accident at Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings, Inc.’s Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, and more and more elementary and junior high schools are reopening in municipalities in Fukushima Prefecture where evacuation orders have been lifted. Yet as five towns and villages join the list this spring, bringing to nine the number of municipalities where classes have resumed, the number of children enrolled is less than one-tenth of that prior to the disaster. For municipalities in Fukushima, the return of households with young children is critical to recovery. Building new school buildings, offering free school lunches, launching pick-up and drop-off bus services — these hugely expensive projects to boost attendance hint at the desperation of local governments. Numerous kids bused in A “selection show” was held to choose new school uniforms last fall at the temporary school building for Iitate Junior High School, operated by Iitate village in Fukushima. The meeting was held so students could pick one of two uniform patterns newly designed for the school’s reopening in Iitate village this spring. Both uniforms were designed free of charge by famed designer Hiroko Koshino. When students modeling the uniforms appeared, cries of “kawaii” (cute) came from the audience. Students voted for such items as a navy blue blazer and blue-check skirt for the uniform. A new combined elementary and junior high school building, with construction costing a total of ¥3.5 billion, is ready. In the five municipalities — the towns of Tomioka, Namie, and Kawamata, and the villages of Katsurao and Iitate — where elementary and junior high schools reopen locally this April, the number of students expected to attend is 132. Of these, 75 are from Iitate. The number looks significantly higher compared to the other four towns and villages, but the majority of students will actually be bused in from the city of Fukushima, where they have lived since evacuating. They are not returning with family to their village homes. With few children returning, the five municipalities are reopening schools that combine several schools under one roof. An example setup is science labs and other rooms on the first floor, the elementary school on the second, and junior high on the third. As a result, there will effectively be only one school in each municipality. Thus, each local government utilized the national government’s reconstruction budget to construct the school buildings and improve their educational environment. Tomioka spent about ¥860 million on projects such as installing air conditioners in every classroom of its completely renovated school building. The town of Namie offers school lunches and other services free of charge. Despite such incentives, few children are applying. “There’s actually a sincere feeling of relief that the number of applicants wasn’t zero,” a senior official in one of the local government’s board of education revealed. “We can’t predict at all what lies ahead, and have no ingenious ideas to boost the number of kids.” In Kawamata, about ¥400 million was spent building a pool with a retractable roof. Fifteen students will return to school in April, but with none in fifth grade or under, the elementary school will be forced to suspend operations if no new children enroll in the 2019 school year. Local residents mobilize As long as the younger generations and children do not return, hometowns will have a hard time recovering. Those residents who have come back are mobilizing. This spring, Namie will open Namie Sosei Elementary and Junior High School. At the municipal housing complex nearby, there are currently 40 tulip planters lined up. Nineteen residents are tending to the flowers, which will be used to decorate the new school building and welcome the children. “The only people who have returned to the town are the elderly,” said Hidezo Sato, 72, chairman of the administrative ward headman’s association. “Having kids here gives us purpose.” To keep the school alive, the local government is also hoping to take advantage of help from local residents. Namie has built a “clubhouse” inside the school building for children to interact with locals. In Iitate, there is a plan to start “hometown education,” wherein elderly residents will be invited to teach kids things like how to make local dishes. Challenges lie ahead Even after reopening, the challenges will be relentless. Long-distance commuting by bus is one example. In the villages of Katsurao and Iitate, children will come to school from the places they evacuated to, such as Fukushima city, traveling an hour or more along bumpy mountain roads and other routes. It is quite taxing on children in lower grades, and many parents have voiced their concern. Eleven-year-old Sakura Watanabe — a fifth-grader from Katsurao living in public housing for disaster evacuees in Miharu, Fukushima — will commute by bus about 25 kilometers each way starting in April. She is currently studying at a temporary school building in Miharu and wished to enroll at Katsurao school together with her friends. But her father Masahiro, 42, a restaurant manager, voiced concern, saying: “I wonder if it’s safe to travel on those narrow roads. Will the younger kids be able to handle long-distance commuting?” The unease grows when considering other issues, such as the roads freezing over during winter. Ensuring high-quality classes In the four municipalities in Fukushima Prefecture where schools have already reopened locally, efforts are being made to ensure quality is maintained, despite low student numbers. An elementary school in the Odaka district of Minamisoma reopened last spring. This spring, 66 children are expected to attend. A multiple homeroom teacher system will be employed to run combined lessons in a school building for what had been four separate schools prior to the disaster. The sixth-graders have four teachers, one from each of the schools, and the other grades have two or more homeroom teachers. They give careful attention during class, helping students on the spot to work out the areas they struggle in. For certain subjects, classes are split and taught by academic ability. ICT (information and communication technology) education is also a draw. The school introduced 20 tablet devices that the children can use to record and review their performance in physical education classes and look up information for their studies. It is the only school in the city where an assistant language teacher is stationed permanently. Helping households with small children is also a challenge. Elementary and junior high schools in the village of Kawauchi reopened in spring 2012. Having started with a total of 30 students, it will have 64 when the new school year starts. But that is still less than 40 percent of the 166 that were there before the disaster. Compared to the fact that about 70 percent of residents returned to the village overall, households with young children are not coming back. For the 2014 school year, the village started providing ¥30,000 per month to subsidize high school students’ bus fares and lodging costs. In addition to offering free day care, it has set up a system to provide ¥20,000 in monthly aid to families with children aged under 3 who do not attend day care. Since the 2016 school year, the village has also begun efforts targeting ordinary citizens who live outside Fukushima Prefecture. It provides ¥500,000 in relocation expenses for single-parent households with children junior high school-age or younger, and introduced a system to subsidize rent. As a result of providing support for everything from finding a job to finding a place to live, seven households comprising 16 people have relocated to the village from Tokyo, Aichi Prefecture and elsewhere. “We promote the village as a place that puts effort into childcare and education,” said a village spokesperson. “Due to the slow return [of former residents], we want to actively attract city dwellers.” (From The Yomiuri Shimbun, March 1, 2018)Speech

Tepco's 'ice wall' fails to freeze Fukushima's toxic water buildup

Aaron Sheldrick, Malcolm Foster

OKUMA, Japan (Reuters) - A costly “ice wall” is failing to keep groundwater from seeping into the stricken Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant, data from operator Tokyo Electric Power Co shows, preventing it from removing radioactive melted fuel at the site seven years after the disaster. When the ice wall was announced in 2013, Tepco (9501.T) assured skeptics that it would limit the flow of groundwater into the plant’s basements, where it mixes with highly radioactive debris from the site’s reactors, to “nearly nothing.” However, since the ice wall became fully operational at the end of August, an average of 141 metric tonnes a day of water has seeped into the reactor and turbine areas, more than the average of 132 metric tonnes a day during the prior nine months, a Reuters analysis of the Tepco data showed. The groundwater seepage has delayed Tepco’s clean-up at the site and may undermine the entire decommissioning process for the plant, which was battered by a tsunami seven years ago this Sunday. Waves knocked out power and triggered meltdowns at three of the site’s six reactors that spewed radiation, forcing 160,000 residents to flee, many of whom have not returned to this once-fertile coast. Though called an ice wall, Tepco has attempted to create something more like a frozen soil barrier. Using 34.5 billion yen ($324 million) in public funds, Tepco sunk about 1,500 tubes filled with brine to a depth of 30 meters (100 feet) in a 1.5-kilometre (1-mile) perimeter around four of the plant’s reactors. It then cools the brine to minus 30 degrees Celsius (minus 22 Fahrenheit). The aim is to freeze the soil into a solid mass that blocks groundwater flowing from the hills west of the plant to the coast. However, the continuing seepage has created vast amounts of toxic water that Tepco must pump out, decontaminate and store in tanks at Fukushima that now number 1,000, holding 1 million tonnes. It says it will run out of space by early 2021. “I believe the ice wall was ‘oversold’ in that it would solve all the release and storage concerns,” said Dale Klein, the former chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the head of an external committee advising Tepco on safety issues. “The hydrology of the Fukushima site is very complicated and thus the exact water flow is hard to predict,” he said, “especially during heavy rains.” TYPHOON The water inflows often fluctuate with rainfall. The dry month of January averaged 83 tons a day, Tepco data showed. But when a typhoon struck during the last week of October, 866 tons a day poured into the reactors. Overall, Tepco says a combination of drains, pumps and the ice wall has cut water flows by three-quarters, from 490 tons a day during the December 2015 to February 2016 period to an average of 110 tons a day for December 2017 to February 2018. It is hard to measure exactly how much the ice wall is contributing, Tepco officials say, but based on computer analysis the utility estimates the barrier is reducing water flows by about 95 tonnes a day compared to two years ago, before the barrier was operating. “Our assessment is that the ice wall has been effective,” said Naohiro Masuda, Tepco’s chief decommissioning officer, adding that rain falling within the ice wall perimeter contributed to surging volumes. “We now believe we have a system in place to manage the water level.” However, a government-commissioned panel on Wednesday offered a mixed assessment of the ice wall, saying it was partially effective but more steps were needed. Controlling the groundwater seepage using the ice wall has been central to Japan’s program to show it had the Fukushima decommissioning in hand. The barrier was announced just days before Tokyo won the bid to host the 2020 Summer Olympics and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe declared that Fukushima was “under control” in his final pitch to the International Olympic Committee. In addition to the building costs, the ice wall needs an estimated 44 million kilowatt hours of electricity a year to run, enough to power about 15,000 typical Japanese homes. (For a graphic on Fukushima's "ice wall" click tmsnrt.rs/2tqxK1k) NO MORE SPACE Meanwhile, Tepco must decide how to cope with the growing volume of water stored on site. The purification process removes 62 radioactive elements from the contaminated water but it leaves tritium, a mildly radioactive element that is difficult to separate from water. Not considered harmful in low doses, tritium is released into oceans and rivers by nuclear plants around the world at various national standard levels. But local residents, particularly fishermen, oppose ocean releases because they fear it will keep consumers from buying Fukushima products. Many countries, including South Korea and China, still have restrictions on produce from Fukushima and neighboring areas. A government-commissioned task force is examining five options for disposing of the tritium-laced water, including ocean releases, though no decision has been made. Ken Buesseler, a radiochemist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in the United States, suggests that Tepco should open the tanks to external inspections to see if the water is safe. “From the public’s viewpoint, I think they’d want a bit of independent confirmation,” Buesseler said. “It’s no harder and a lot cheaper than building an ice wall.”

Newly-found 'super-deep diamond' in Africa contains a rare Earth mineral never seen before on our planet

Researchers found the mineral in a diamond at South Africa's Cullinan Mine

The mine is known as the source for two diamonds in the British Crown Jewels

The mineral, calcium silicate perovskite, is Earth's fourth most abundant mineral

It was mined less than one kilometre (0.62 miles) beneath Earth's crust

The finding provides proof of the recycling of oceanic crust into Earth's lower mantle and the fate of oceanic plates as they descend into the depths of Earth

By Cecile Borkhataria For MailonlinePublished: 11:47 EDT, 8 March 2018 | Updated: 15:04 EDT, 8 March 2018

A never-before-seen mineral has been discovered in a stunning 'super-deep diamond' formed in the Earth's mantle. Calcium silicate perovskite is usually buried 400 miles below the surface and is thought to be the planet’s fourth most abundant mineral. The researchers found the mineral within a tiny diamond mined less than one kilometre (0.62 miles) beneath Earth's crust, at South Africa's famous Cullan Mine, best known as the source for two of the largest diamonds in the British Crown Jewels. The researchers say that the finding provides proof that slabs of oceanic crust that sink deep within the Earth are recycled into the lower mantle. 'Nobody has ever managed to keep this mineral stable at the Earth's surface,' said Dr Graham Pearson, a professor in the University of Alberta's Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences and one of the best known diamond researchers in the world. He explained the mineral is normally found deep inside Earth's mantle, at 700 kilometres (435 miles). 'The only possible way of preserving this mineral at the Earth's surface is when it's trapped in an unyielding container like a diamond,' he explained. 'Based on our findings, there could be as much as zetta tonnes (1021) of this perovskite in deep Earth.' Dr Pearson and research colleagues from the University of British Columbia and other institutions analysed the diamond, which measures about three millimetres (0.12 inches) across, and published their findings in the journal Nature. According to the study, 'laboratory experiments and seismology data have created a clear theoretical picture of the most abundant mineral that comprise the deeper parts of the Earth's mantle.' But it's the discoveries of some of these minerals in 'super-deep' diamonds - formed between two hundred and about one thousand kilometres (124 - 621 miles) into Earth's lower mantle - that have confirmed part of this picture. Dr Pearson explained that the diamonds from the Cullinan Mine are among not only the most commercially valuable in the world, but they are also the most scientifically valuable, providing insight into the deepest parts of Earth's core. He said that the diamond they found would have sustained more than 24 billion pascals of pressure, equivalent to the pressure of 240,000 atmosphere. The researchers estimate that the diamond originated about 700 kilometres (435 miles) below Earth's surface, whereas most diamonds are formed at a depth of 150 to 200 kilometres (93 - 124 miles). 'Diamonds are really unique ways of seeing what's in the Earth,' said Dr Pearson. 'And the specific composition of the perovskite inclusion in this particular diamond very clearly indicates the recycling of oceanic crust into Earth's lower mantle. 'It provides fundamental proof of what happens to the fate of oceanic plates as they descend into the depths of the Earth.' He said that the discovery once again highlights the uniqueness of diamonds being able to preserve things that we otherwise would never be able to see. 'And it's a nice illustration of how science works,' said Dr Peason. 'That you build on theoretical predictions in this case from seismology and that once in a while you're able to make a clinching observation that really proves that the theory works,' he said. Dr Peason, Canada's Excellence Research Chair Laureate, was also behind the major 2014 discovery of ringwoodite - Earth's fifth most abundant mineral - in a diamond that pointed to a vast reservoir of water bound to silicate rocks in Earth's mantle. Dr Pearson worked with an international team of researchers, including one of the best X-ray crystallographers in the world, Fabrizio Nestola from Padova, Italy, as well as researchers from the Deep Carbon Observatory in Washington, DC. This research also saw Pearson team up with colleagues from the University of British Columbia who together lead a program - the Diamond Exploration Research and Training School, part of NSERC's (Natural Science and Engineering Research Council of Canaca) Collaborative Research and Training Experience - to train the next generation of highly qualified diamond explorers. HOW ARE DIAMONDS FORMED? Naturally occurring diamonds were formed over 3 billion years ago deep within the Earth's crust under conditions of intense heat and pressure. These conditions cause carbon atoms to crytallise, forming diamonds. Diamonds are found at a depth of approcimately 150 to 200 kilometres (93 - 124 miles). Here, temperatures average 900 to 1,300 degrees Celsius, with pressures of 45 to 60 kilobars (which is around 50,000 times that of atmospheric pressure at the Earth’s surface). Under these conditions, molten lamproite and kimberlite (known as magma) are also formed within Earth's upper mantle, and they expand at rapid rates. This expansion causes the magma to erupt, forcing it to Earth's surface and taking along with it diamond bearing rocks. The magma erupts by forming a 'pipe' to the surface, and as it cools the magma hardens to form Kimberlite, settling in vertical structures called kimberlite pipes. These pipes are the most significant sources of diamonds, yet only about 1 in every 200 kimberlite pipes contain gem-quality diamonds. The name 'Kimberlite' comes from the South African town of Kimberley, where the first diamonds were found in this type of rock. Source: Cape Town Diamond Museum

The Collapse of Venezuela Was “a systematic destruction to seize our freedom”

by J. G. Martinez D.

Editor’s Note: As we begin to become more concerned about the possibility of our own economic collapse, it’s important to see what has happened in other countries. Today, Jose explains how the collapse of Venezuela was deliberately engineered to make the populace bend to the will of a dictatorship. It didn’t happen all at once and most people never saw it coming until it was too late, and they were starving, oppressed, and dying. ~ Daisy The Collapse of Venezuela Was “a systematic destruction to seize our freedom” In this article, I would like to expose how this government-induced collapse has affected the psychological health of the population. And I would like to make special emphasis on the word induced. The nature of the corruption cases has been so large, and the damage to our economy has been so wide, with such devastating effects, that there is no any doubt that this could never have been generated by ignorance, lack of the needed aptitudes and skills, or plain and simple negligence, nor combination of all these factors. This was a systematic destruction of our institutions, our government structure, and way of life, to allow the government, against the will of the people, to seize our freedom and our democratic system. What is a crisis? Let’s formally define what a crisis is. A harmful, hazardous situation lived by a person or community as a consequence of an unexpected and sudden change in their living conditions. This situation is a threat to their welfare; physical integrity, social and economic stability, and the usual way to face adversity. This can result that the person crashes down, or otherwise, gets their guts together to overcome whatever they have to face. As it can be supposed, the magnitude of the impact is proportional to the threat, to the personality and the previous mind and body health of the individuals, of the support they could have, and most importantly…of the preparedness level the people had. The impact has been divided by the experts into 3 stages: Stage 1: The Warning. This exists just when there is a previous warning between the initial awareness and the occurrence of the event, such as a hurricane. In this stage, the individuals shall be able to foresee the real dimension of the hazard to be able to act accordingly to mitigate or minimize the damage. In unprepared communities the impact is huge. In the case of Venezuela there were a lot of things people could have done, but in our society the concept of preparedness is almost unknown, and this can´t be addressed enough. Even those who were aware of the possible situations, like us, saw our preppings swept out in a few months. A dictatorship taking place with bloody and lethal force was something that, despite what some readers may say, was not present even in the worst nightmares of Venezuelans. Stage 2: The impact phase itself. The gangs took control of the food supply system, under the government’s eye in broad daylight. The military was designated via a presidential bill to seize food companies (including Cargill, and lots of other basic staples producing enterprises). The rationing became more and more common in the entire territory. Then a huge black market appeared, and medications and food disappeared suddenly. The military controlled a large corporation, CASA, in charge of IMPORTING food, instead of producing. Huge business and bribes are involved here, therefore this was, to my eyes, one of the main signs about what was going to come, and I was not wrong. But the reactions are as different as persons. My main reaction was to prepare a “vacation” trip overseas, as our preps were not going to be enough and my job was a waste of precious time. The salary wouldn’t buy two weeks worth of food (now it does not cover even a week). So I bought my ticket 5 months before the trip and dedicated my time to other online jobs paid in foreign currency, to survive a few weeks while I could settle down and get my family out. Still a work in progress, though. Having one of my most desired possessions in this world, a motorhome in good shape, would have saved us a LOT of money and it would be right now a very valuable asset. Renting an empty lot in a subdivision to park the RV, would have provided us a more solid condition to migrate. Stage 3: The aftermath. The common feeling among my former coworkers who are in the middle of the collapse who did not prepare (basically all of them) are now struggling, and I mean, REALLY having a hard time. Their salary is not enough even for food. The benefits, like a full coverage medical insurance that was once the envy of the rest of the working class, are now useless. Doctors have migrated, there are no medications in the private hospitals either, and the coverage is not enough because of the high inflation rates. Those who worked 11 hours a day without developing a plan B, relying just on the company work, are getting their backsides kicked, and I am not lying: they STARVE. Even with both of the adult members of the family working, their joint salary, benefits and special savings assignations the company provided (12,5% of the salary was additionally paid so the employees could have a savings ability) is not enough. A former coworker, engineer, and his wife, an engineer as well, told me via social networking that his family had been eating just white rice three days in a row. If this is not under your definition of collapse, then please let me know. The rationing that should be once a week is not arriving to them but once every month and a half of the previous amount if they’re lucky. People want to get out and can’t. They need to buy food and can’t. They need medical care and can’t get it. They need to fix their cars and can’t afford the parts, not even an oil change. Crime is rampant. Kids have been kidnapped at gunpoint from the doors of their schools. To me, this is the collapse. There was NOT any possible way to prepare for this, I think, other one than but bugging out outside of the borders of that politically-induced mess until the dust settles down. The reactions of the rest of the expat communities all over South America, the receivers of most of the Venezuelans who could leave, have been, in my opinion, appropriate. There have been blossoming NGOs to assist those who had to stay and those who are migrating in desperation. There have been people who fell into such deep depression that they have commited suicide. Every week the news reports one or two self-inflicted deaths. Official media is under heavy censorship. This is not something that you are going to see in the world media. In the hospitals, the children dying from malnutrition are registered with some other cause of death. Those pictures we used to see from Ethiopia, now we see it in the main social networks, but the children are white, with straight hair and clear brown or green eyes this time. But they are indeed starving, just like the Ethiopian people. What could be done? I am not the kind of person who stays sitting for too much time. I look for solutions to problems. It’s in my blood. I am going to be creative now, and you will have to allow it to me so we, as a prepping community perhaps could submit some solutions. (I am already working in a project with nutrition specialists, agronomical engineers, and some other people with more experience in this stuff than I have.) Everyone with a small plot should start to grow assorted vegetables and fruit, under expert advising, focusing on a short crop cycle. The same should be done with those with land suited to have some cattle, mainly goats and pork, as these are short cycled and abundant. People in the cities, living in the barrios who are still working for a so-called salary should pack up their families and bug out, heading to the fields and rural communities. Crime, crowding-induced diseases, lack of water, and the general environment of desperation are taking their toll on the adults’ and children’s psyches. It is better to get to some friends’ farm or cottage and help as much as possible to feed the family than to stay in a barrio under gang control. There have been shadowy reports about the gangs getting stronger, to the point they have actually taken young woman as sex slaves. The communities should organize themselves to avoid robbery of their production. This is now a more and more common situation. If someone grows anything in their backyard, neighbors will trespass in the middle of the night once the crop is ripe to feed their own starving children. This happened several times to one of my plumbing freelancers. He packed, sold the house in that crappy barrio, and went back to his original mountain place where he had a small plot on the property of his family, all of them farming people. Now they can feed their wonderful kids, they are healthy, and in a less populated, closer-knit community in their small original rural town. This was my advice to him, and it was great to see them leave and improve their life conditions. A local exchange trading system should be stablished in the communities, as the currency has no value. This is as old as humanity itself, I know. But now we have one advantage: we may stabilize and set up fair trades because we have access to information from other countries and their economies. In a town close to a river with pleny of fish, it should be cheaper than another one with lots of green hills for keeping goats. With a little research, a fair price for basic staples could be achieved. And last but not least, alternative energy production systems should be installed, the better systems with renewable sources that one can afford. I am a huge fan of closed cycle steam turbines. They can be fed with vegetable debris product of the cleaning and grooming of orchids and crop plots, and their output power rate is decent. Combine these with home made wind systems or small water steam turbines, and there is a lot of potential. And they can be made up with readily available parts: bike gears, 200-liter barrels, and old car alternators, farm equipment, old batteries, you get the picture. Someone close enough to your place needing light for the house, at night, could provide you with eggs for the week, and you provide power enough for a TV or a small fridge. Why this? Because our power grid is going to fail anytime soon. There is a union secretary in jail because he transmitted the warning. The government called him a traitor, accused him, and he is in the can now. Go figure. That is what preppers do, after all, don’t we? In our Venezuelan example, with a worthless currency these solutions could be life-saving.

Election interference ALERT: Google / YouTube now blatantly trying to steal the 2018 elections

Wednesday, March 07, 2018 by: Mike Adams

(Natural News) The realization is suddenly obvious: The Google / YouTube selective “censorship rampage” that has targeted conservative websites and content creators is a brazen, illegal scheme to interfere with U.S. elections and steal the 2018 mid-terms. (Related: Read 10 powerful things you can do NOW to take back your freedom from the “techno tyrants”…) The systematic silencing of conservative views is necessary, of course, for Democrats to win enough seats to gain control of the U.S. House of Representatives after the mid-term elections. Once control is established, Democrats will immediately move to impeach President Trump. Although the Senate would not likely prosecute that impeachment, the mere achievement of the U.S. House declaring “impeachment” would be enough to convince most brainwashed news consumers that Trump is somehow a guilty criminal (nobody will remember that Bill Clinton was also impeached by the House). From there, the 2020 presidential election is also stolen, and Democrats land their selected tyrant in the White House just in time for Ginsberg’s retirement from SCOTUS. Once that is accomplished, the effort to utterly dismantle both the First and Second Amendments of the United States Constitution / Bill of Rights will be placed on urgent priority. Before long, conservative speech will be criminalized, and following a carefully staged mass shooting of hundreds of schoolchildren — because of course when children are murdered, no one is allowed to debate the facts of what happened — all Americans will be ordered to surrender their firearms to the government. It’s all “for the children,” you see, and anyone who opposes the idea will be smeared as an evil person who hates children. Once that is accomplished, the “final solution” of the radical Left’s communist sweep across America can finally be initiated. Conservatives will be named “terrorists” and subjected to arrest, imprisonment or mass killings by deranged, lunatic Leftists who are ordered to purge the countryside in exactly the same way students at UC Berkeley called for the murder of conservative speakers. The Left, after all, openly argues that violence against political opponents is a perfectly acceptable way to silence them. Team Trump is already aware the technocrats are trying to steal the election This is the future for America that Google, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter are desperately trying to see play out. And to accomplish it, they’re turning to outright criminal fraud and election interference via selected censorship that targets pro-liberty, pro-America voices. Trump’s 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale is fully aware of the attempted elected fraud by the tech giants. Today he tweeted out a warning: “In public interviews, Parscale has argued that social media, not traditional media, was the key to Trump’s victory in 2016, and identified Facebook as particularly critical to the president’s success,” reports Breitbart.com. “His comment follows weeks of high-profile revelations about Silicon Valley openly limiting the reach of conservatives.” The tech giants are knowingly committing massive election FRAUD in advance of the 2018 mid-terms Make no mistake: The goal of the technology tyrants is the silencing of non-left-wing views and a blatant, criminal attempt to defraud the United States of America by interfering with the 2018 mid-term elections. Not coincidentally, this is exactly the crime that 13 Russians were recently charged with by Robert Mueller. The real interference, however, isn’t from the Russians: It’s from Google, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. Russia’s lame attempts at online chaos and disruption are nothing compared to Google’s deliberate purge of pro-America websites, video channels and voices. And the only reason Google is doing that is because Google is pure EVIL, and like all radical left-wing extremist groups, Google hates our Republic and wants to see liberty crushed into oblivion. Listen to my videos, below, to find out what else YouTube doesn’t want you to hear…

OBAMA ON EDGE: DOJ to Disclose Secret FAST AND FURIOUS Records After SIX YEAR Fight

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.08.18

The Department of Justice officially announced this week its plan to release previously unseen documents regarding the Obama administration’s ‘Fast and Furious’ gun-running scheme; saying they have reached a “conditional settlement agreement” that ends a six-year search for the hidden material. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced his decision Wednesday night, confirming his agency would transmit the documents to the House Intelligence Committee in the coming days; adding “The Department of Justice under my watch is committed to transparency and the rule of law.” “Today, the Department of Justice entered into a conditional settlement agreement with the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and will begin to produce additional documents related to Operation Fast and Furious. The conditional settlement agreement, filed in federal court in Washington D.C., would end six years of litigation arising out of the previous administration’s refusal to produce documents requested by the Committee,” adds the official statement. Operation Fast and Furious was a covert mission ran by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) that allowed Arizona gun store owners to knowingly sell weapons to members of Mexican drug cartels in the hopes of tracking the firearms back to Mexico. Thousands of guns went missing, with some showing up at crime scenes across the border.

By Francesca Chambers, White House Correspondent For Dailymail.com Published: 18:53 EDT, 8 March 2018 | Updated: 09:22 EDT, 9 March 2018

President Donald Trump has accepted North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un's dramatic offer to meet, the White House has confirmed. South Korea's national security adviser Chung Eui-yong first announced the face-to-face and claimed it was due to take place by May. However, a statement from the White House did not confirm the two-month timeframe and said the place and time of the meeting was still being worked out. Governments around the world welcomed the announcement, with praise coming from the UK, Russia and Australia. 'President Trump greatly appreciates the nice words of the South Korean delegation and President Moon. He will accept the invitation to meet with Kim Jong Un at a place and time to be determined,' White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement a half hour after South Korea's announcement. 'We look forward to the denuclearization of North Korea. In the meantime, all sanctions and maximum pressure must remain.' Chung, who made the announcement on behalf of South Korea, led the delegation visiting North Korea earlier this week. The invitation to meet Trump was made to him directly by Kim. The foreign official said that Kim understands and accepts the fact that joint U.S.-South Korean military exercises will continue and that he also made promises to halt nuclear and ballistic tests until the meeting with Trump takes place. A U.S. official later said the meeting would take place in 'a matter of a couple of months' but did not commit the president to a face-to-face with Kim this spring. 'He conveyed that he wants to meet with President Trump as quickly as possible,' the senior official stated. The official said the stiff punishing actions on North Korea would also stay in place. 'At this point we're not even talking about negotiations,' the U.S. official said of a plan to hold North Korea to its word that it would freeze its illicit nuclear and ballistic missile development programs. President Trump reiterated the point in a tweet that followed. 'Kim Jong Un talked about denuclearization with the South Korean Representatives, not just a freeze. Also, no missile testing by North Korea during this period of time. Great progress being made but sanctions will remain until an agreement is reached. Meeting being planned!' the U.S. president said. The planned meeting drew immediate praise from other nations. A spokesperson for the British government said, 'The UK welcomes the South Korean announcement that Kim Jong Un has made a renewed commitment to denuclearise and will refrain from further nuclear missile tests while dialogue continues. 'We welcome the announcement of direct talks with President Trump by May and (South Korean) President Moon Jae-in in April. 'We have always been clear that we want Kim Jong Un to change path and put the welfare of his people ahead of the illegal pursuit of nuclear weapons. 'We will continue to work closely with the US, South Korea and the international community to ensure that pressure on North Korea continues and sanctions are strictly enforced until Kim Jong Un matches his words with concrete actions. We will continue to monitor developments closely.' Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov also welcomed the news, saying that Russia considers the move 'a step in the right direction.' He went on to express hope that an agreement would be implemented because it is 'necessary for normalizing the situation around the Korean peninsula.' Australia's former prime minister expressed surprise at how 'surprisingly good' Trump has been at foreign policy compared to his predecessors. Paul John Keating said the United States was directionless under the previous three administrations and Barack Obama blew an opportunity to reshape the world. On Friday Keating said he had not expected Trump to have 'such a pragmatic' foreign policy on China and Russia, and he urged the U.S. president to continue down the path he was on. Meanwhile, the foreign ministry in China - North Korea's key ally - said it hopes all parties to the will 'show their political courage' in restarting negotiations, and pledged its support in working toward that goal. Spokesman Geng Shuang on Friday said China welcomes and supports the 'positive inter-Korean and U.S.-North Korea interactions.' Geng told reporters at a regularly scheduled press briefing that China hope that all parties 'will continue to strive for the political resolution and lasting peace and stability on the peninsula.' News that Trump had agreed to meet the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un sent Asian stock markets surging and the yen tumbling. It provided a springboard for Asian markets, with Seoul jumping 1.1 percent and Tokyo ending 0.5 percent higher. Hong Kong added more than one percent, Sydney and Singapore each rose 0.3 percent, and Shanghai jumped 0.6 percent. Taipei, Manila, Wellington and Mumbai were also higher. Hopes that the two men could reach some sort of agreement also led to a plunge in the yen, which is considered a go-to safe currency in times of volatility and uncertainty. The dollar jumped to its highest level in a week. 'It's a big deal - there's no question this is a positive move,' Ian Bremmer, president of Eurasia Group, a political-risk research and consulting firm in New York, told Bloomberg TV. 'But also there is the possibility that it could go badly, that Trump could be embarrassed that they make an agreement that Kim Jong-un could backslide on.' Bruce Klingner, former head of the CIA division for the Koreas, also warned Trump to beware of Kim's siren song. 'Washington has fretted that Seoul's acquiescence to North Korea's Olympic charm offensive conveyed legitimacy to the regime and risked undermining international resolve to maintain pressure. The U.S. counseled its ally to exercise caution and move forward cautiously and only after lengthy preparations,' said Klingner, a research fellow now at the Trump-aligned Heritage Foundation. 'The Trump administration should take its own advice before it is seduced by the same sirens' song,' he said in a statement. The announcement on the White House lawn came hours after Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the U.S. was 'a long way from negotiations' with the North. Speaking to reporters during a visit to the African nation of Djibouti, Tillerson said the turnaround was down to the president. 'That is a decision the president took himself. I spoke to him very early this morning about that decision and we had a very good conversation,' Tillerson said Friday. 'President Trump has said for some time that he was open to talks and he would willingly meet with Kim when conditions were right. 'And I think in the president's judgment that time has arrived now,' the top U.S. diplomat said. Tillerson said the United States was surprised at how 'forward-leaning' Kim was in his conversations with a visiting South Korean delegation. He said it was the strongest indication to date of Kim's 'not just willingness but really his desire for talks.' Chung had met Kim earlier in the week in Pyongyang, the dictator's capital. After relaying parts of his conversation to reporters in Seoul and appraising South Korean President Moon Jae-in of the situation, Chung flew to Washington. At the White House on Thursday, Chung and other South Korean officials briefed the president and his national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, as well as Trump's chief of staff, John Kelly, his secretary of defense, James Mattis, the director of national intelligence, Dan Coats, and Vice President Mike Pence. 'I explained to President Trump that his leadership and his maximum pressure policy, together with international solidarity, brought us to this juncture. I expressed President Moon Jae-in's personal gratitude for President Trump's leadership,' Chung said at an outdoor briefing position that's typically used by lawmakers and organization heads who want to speak to the press after White House meetings. Chung says he relayed Kim's commitment to denuclearization. 'Kim pledged that North Korea will refrain from any further nuclear or missile tests. He understands that the routine joint military exercises between the Republic of Korea and the United States must continue. And he expressed his eagerness to meet President Trump as soon as possible,' the South Korean official said. 'President Trump appreciated the briefing and said he would meet Kim Jong-un by May to achieve permanent denuclearization,' Chung said. Trump had pre-empted Chung by saying that South Korea would making a major announcement this evening at 7pm EDT on North Korea. The president popped into the White House press briefing room on Thursday evening at close of business and told a small contingent of reporters who just happened to be present that an announcement was coming. The U.S. president gave no indication of what would be declared but suggested with the surprise appearance that the news would be positive. According to CNN, an excited president turned to Jon Karl of ABC News saying, 'Hopefully, you will give me credit.' White House press officers scrambled to make good on Trump's pledge, waiting until just 30 minutes before the time of the announcement to say where it would take place and that the update from would come from Chung. South Korea's Moon later said the planned summit will be a 'historical milestone' that will put the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula 'really on track.' Moon in a statement read out by his spokesman on Friday also complimented Trump for accepting Kim's invitation for a summit, saying the American president's leadership will be praised 'not only by the residents of South and North Korea but every peace-loving person around the world.' Moon is also preparing for a summit with Kim at a border village between the Koreas in April. Talks are a 180 from Trump's complaint last fall that Tillerson, his secretary of state, was 'wasting his time' with diplomacy. Tillerson had suggested that officials from the U.S. and North Korea sit down for talks without preconditions only to have the White House assert that a conversation would only take place if Kim agreed to abandon his nuclear weapons program. Tensions began to thaw as the Winter Olympics approached. The games, held just across the border from Pyongyang in South Korea, provided an opportunity for the two Koreas to renew ties. Earlier this week, Chung spent two days in the neighboring country that ended with a proffer to the U.S. to halt nuclear and missile testings and take up talks. Trump said Tuesday that a 'very good dialogue' had opened up with North Korea as he cautiously approached Pyongyang's proposition. He told reporters in the Oval Office that the conversations had yielded progress, striking an optimistic tone. 'We're gonna see. We're gonna see,' he told a journalist asking about North Korea's commitment to ending its nuclear weapons program if it no longer felt threatened. 'They seem to be acting positively, but we're gonna see.' The U.S. president said he wants to take the 'proper' pathway, which he suggested was diplomatic talks, 'But we are prepared to go either way.' 'And as I said, hopefully we'll go in the very, very peaceful, beautiful path. We're prepared to go whichever path is necessary,' he added. 'I think we're having very good dialogue, and you're gonna certainly find out very soon what's happening, but we have, we have made progress, there's no question about it.' That morning, Trump warned Kim, 'The U.S. is ready to go hard in either direction!' The U.S. president said then that 'possible progress' toward talks had been made, but it could also be a 'false hope.' On Saturday evening, Trump said that the North Koreans had reached out and his administration would be meeting with Kim's government. 'They, by the way, called up a couple of days ago and said, 'We would like to talk.' And I said, 'So would we, but you have to de-nuke, you have to de-nuke.' So, let's see what happens,' the president stated. 'But we will be meeting and we'll see if anything positive happens.' A National Security Council spokesman did not respond to DailyMail.com's request for clarification, and a senior official would not tell reporters during a call on Tuesday afternoon if talks were already under way. Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven offered Tuesday during a joint press conference with Trump at the White House to mediate talks with the North Koreans, if that is what Trump wants. His country maintains an embassy in Pyongyang and serves at the United States' protectorate there. Löfven said it's not up to Sweden to solve the dispute, however, he believes that the North Koreans trust his nation to act as arbiter. 'If the president decides, the key actors decide, if they want us to help out,' he said, 'we'll be there.' Other potential meeting places were the Demilitarized Zone, or DMZ, between North and South Korea, in addition to Seoul, Beijing and Tokyo. A senior U.S. official said Thursday evening that Trump had spoke to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. The official did not say if a call to China's Xi Jinping was also underway. Complicating a conversation between Trump and Xi was the U.S. president's announcement on Thursday afternoon that he was slapping a 25 percent tariff on imported steel and a 10 percent penalty on imported aluminum in an aggressive bid to prevent Chinese dumping and boost American metal workers. A week ago, Trump signaled his openness to a talk with Kim -- if it took place 'under the right conditions.' 'Otherwise, we're not talking,' Trump told United States governors. He commented that Kim 'wants to talk, as of last night' and said 'we want to talk also.' Trump went on to make a familiar complaint about his predecessors, blasting former President Bill Clinton and others for failing to keep North Korea in check. 'The Clinton administration spent billions and billions of dollars. They gave them billions. They built things for them. They went out of their way, and the day after the agreement was signed, they continued with nuclear research. It was horrible.' Continuing, Trump said, 'The Bush administration did nothing — both. The Obama administration wanted to do something. He told me it's the single biggest problem that this country has. But they didn't do anything. 'And it would have been much easier, in those days, than it is now. I think most people understand that. But we've been very tough with them.' Trump's administration has led an international charge to cripple North Korea's economy and bring Kim to his knees. The advance will not cease, the U.S. has said, until the rogue dictator abandons his nuclear ambitions. At his White House news conference on Tuesday, Trump said he believes that the North Koreans are sincere in their offer to halt nuclear and missile tests if the United States sits down for talks. 'But I think they're sincere also because the sanctions,' he assessed. 'The sanctions have been very, very strong and very biting. And we don't want that to happen. So I really believe they are sincere. I hope they're sincere. We're going to soon find out.' The Pyeongchang Games provided a long-awaited opening for the kind of detente that could lead to substantive talks between North Korea and South Korea, along with the United States and its allies. The two Koreas marched under one flag at the opening ceremony of the games, and Kim sent his sister, Kim Yo Jong, to the South to head the North's delegation. A South Korean envoy lead by Chung returned Tuesday to Seoul from a meeting with Kim in Pyongyang where the North Koreans are said to have offered to halt nuclear tests for the time being if the United States agrees to talks. North Korea also expressed its willingness during the two-day summit to put a total moratorium on its nuclear program if the South backs off from military behavior it perceives to be a threat. Chung said said that Kim promised not to use nuclear or conventional weapons against South Korea in the conversation where the two countries also agreed to open a hotline between their leaders 'to ease military tension and have close coordination' and meet for another round of talks in April. The next summit is expected to take place in Panmunjom. It will be only the third inter-Korean set of talks ever held and the first in more than a decade. The last time the rival countries held high-level talks was in 2007, when the North was under Kim's father's command. A summit in 2000 also took place while Kim Jong Il controlled the North. The elder Kim passed away in 2011, giving rise to Kim Jong-un's reign. Chung said Tuesday that the younger Kim, 34, said he wants to 'write a new history of national reunification' during a four-hour dinner this week in Pyongyang. Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, hailed the announced talks as a 'glimmer of hope.' 'It would of course be wonderful if we could see an easing of tensions because... the nuclearization in North Korea has been a source of great concern for all of us,' she said. Former NBA star Dennis Rodman, who has traveled several times to North Korea and is one of the few Americans to have met its leader, also praised Trump for his decision to hold talks. Rodman told The Associated Press he looks forward to returning to the pariah nation for 'basketball diplomacy' in the coming months. 'Well done, President Trump. You're on the way to a historical meeting no U.S. president has ever done,' Rodman said. U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham said in a statement on Thursday that he beckons peace. He also told Kim that 'it will be the end' of him if he tried to take advantage of Trump. Other senior US politicians were also skeptical, with Republican Cory Gardner of Colorado saying the 'price of admission' for Trump and Kim's meeting must be 'complete, verifiable, and irreversible de-nuclerization of the Korean peninsula.' Democrat Ed Markey of Massachusetts said Trump should treat it 'as the beginning of a long diplomatic process,' avoiding 'unscripted' remarks that could derail it. Meanwhile, Republican Rep. Ed Royce of California, the House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman, credited Trump and said that North Korea's desire to talk shows that sanctions are 'starting to work.' As the Olympics unfolded in South Korea, it was the United States that had loudly warned the world that Kim was putting on a charm offensive. Pence, who led the U.S. delegation to the opening ceremony, urged the international community, and South Korea, not let up on the North until Kim fully capitulates when it comes to his building of nuclear weapons. 'The policy of the U.S. is the denuclearization of North Korea. The maximum pressure campaign is going to continue and intensify. All options are on the table,' a senior official said of Pence's message to Moon as he departed the peninsula. The vice president announced during the trip, and the United States followed up with, a rigorous set of sanctions that the Trump administration described as the largest and most aggressive to date. Treasury blacklisted one person, 27 companies and 28 ships with the action it says was 'aimed at shutting down North Korea's illicit maritime smuggling activities to obtain oil and sell coal.' The sanctions hit entities in Taiwan, Hong Kong, China and Singapore and others. Steve Mnuchin, the U.S. Treasury Secretary, said that nearly all of North Korea's shipping sector had now been targeted. The total number of sanctions steps since 2005 has now hit 45 - with almost half of the actions coming since Trump took office. At a press conference later in the day, Trump said he'd make preparations for 'phase two' if the punishing actions are not successful, the outcome of which could be 'very, very unfortunate for the world.' 'But hopefully the sanctions will work,' he said during remarks at a joint White House press conference with the Australian prime minister. A senior administration official told reporters then, 'The president is clearly frustrated and rightly so over the efforts that have failed in the past and also over the uptick in testing and the advances we've seen in the North Korean program.' In his Tuesday morning tweets on North Korea, Trump said, 'Possible progress being made in talks with North Korea. For the first time in many years, a serious effort is being made by all parties concerned. 'The World is watching and waiting!' he added. 'May be false hope, but the U.S. is ready to go hard in either direction!' His comment suggested that military action against North Korea is still in his back pocket, despite the decreased likelihood of a confrontation. President Trump said Saturday evening during a roast at a dinner in Washington that's held off camera that he 'won't rule out direct talks' with Kim. 'As far as the risk of dealing with a madman is concerned, that's his problem, not mine,' he joked. Trump went on to say that Kim 'must be a fine man' and that his hardline against North Korea saved the Winter Olympics. 'Without President Trump and his strong attitude they would have never called up and said, 'Hey, we'd love to be in the Olympics together,' ' he recalled South Korea's Moon as saying. 'It was heading for disaster and now we're talking.' Diving off script in the 35-minute speech that was supposed to stay light and last approximately 10 minutes, Trump said, 'Maybe positive things are happening. I hope that's true, and I say that in all seriousness. 'But we will be meeting, and we'll see if anything positive happens. It's been a long time,' he said. 'It's a problem that should have been fixed a long time ago.' The insults Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un have hurled at each other: President Donald Trump accepting an offer to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is a stunning turn of events after a year of heated verbal warfare that included crude insults and mutual threats of nuclear attacks. While the move to hold a summit appears to be an effort to ease decades of animosity between the US and North Korea, it comes after months of the two leaders trading insults and Trump threatening to 'totally destroy' the country. From Trump calling Kim a 'rocket man' and 'short and fat' to the US President being labeled 'mentally deranged' there has been no shortage of nasty insults between the leaders. So ahead of the summit - for which a time and place is yet to be determined - here is a look at some of the more notable war of words between Trump and Kim so far. Short and fat: Back in November last year, Trump hurled an insult at Kim during a trip to Vietnam calling him 'short and fat'. 'Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me 'old,' when I would NEVER call him 'short and fat?' Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend - and maybe someday that will happen!' he tweeted. He was retaliating after North Korean media had labeled Trump as an 'old lunatic'. Rocket Man: During his address to the UN General Assembly back in September, Trump said the US would 'totally destroy North Korea' if forced to defend itself or its allies. He also referred to Kim as 'Rocket Man' during his speech. 'The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea,' Trump said. 'Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime.' Mentally deranged: Kim hit back to the Rocket Man comments accusing Trump of 'mentally deranged behavior.' He said he would 'surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire'. Trump responded on Twitter the following morning: 'Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn't mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before!' Big button: Kim said that he has a nuclear button on his desk in his New Year's address this year. In the same speech, he also called for improved relations with South Korea and suggested sending a delegation to the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. Trump quickly responded saying that he has a bigger and more powerful nuclear button. 'North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the 'Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.' Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!' he tweeted. Fire and fury: Ever since Trump was elected, the two leaders have traded barbs about threats of potential nuclear attacks. After North Korea announced they had tested a series of missiles, Trump said the country had best not make more threats or 'they will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.' North Korea hours later announces a plan to launch a salvo of missiles toward the US territory of Guam, a major military hub in the Pacific. Other threats of nuclear attacks: Kim said in his New Year's address in 2017 that preparations for launching an intercontinental ballistic missile had 'reached the final stage.' A day later Trump, who was then president-elect, tweeted: 'North Korea just stated that it is in the final stages of developing a nuclear weapon capable of reaching parts of the US It won't happen!'

Russian Spy Ship Off Georgia Coast

Viktor Leonev currently sailing near Navy nuclear submarine base

By : Bill Gertz March 8, 2018 5:35 pm

A Russian spy ship is currently conducting surveillance operations in waters near a U.S. ballistic missile submarine base in Georgia, according to Navy officials. "We are tracking the Viktor Leonov's presence off the East Coast, much like we are aware of all vessels approaching the United States," said Navy Cmdr. Bill Speaks, a Navy spokesman. "We respect the right and freedoms of all nations to operate in international waters in accordance with international law," he added. A military official said the Leonov, a ship known for conducting annual forays near sensitive U.S. military facilities off the East Coast, is currently operating off the Georgia coast near Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, home to U.S. nuclear missile submarines. The ship for the past several days was located some 20 nautical miles offshore and has been closely shadowed by U.S. military ships and aircraft, including P-8 surveillance aircraft. The spy operations come days after Russian President Vladimir Putin announced Moscow's development of new and "invincible" nuclear weapons aimed at the United States. A video presentation during the Russian leader's speech showed a simulated multiple-warhead nuclear strike on Florida. Putin, in a speech in Moscow, also touted a new unmanned underwater vehicle capable of delivering a megaton-sized nuclear warhead against ports and coastal cities. Kings Bay is the location of Submarine Group 10 that includes six nuclear-armed ballistic missile submarines and two guided missile submarines. It is also the location of Strategic Weapons Facility, Atlantic, that is in charge of maintaining nuclear warheads for submarine-launched ballistic missiles. The Leonov has been tracked since January when it left Port of Spain in Trinidad and Tobago. The Leonov is part of a major increase in Russian naval activity around the world. Under the Trump administration, Russia and China have been elevated to national security threats after nearly two decades of a major focus on counterterrorism operations. Last year, when the Leonov was spotted off the U.S. coast, President Donald Trump told reporters in commenting on Russian election meddling, "the greatest thing I could do is shoot that ship that's 30 miles off shore right out of the water." The Leonov was tracked by Steffan Watkins, a Canadian security analyst who closely tracks Russian ship movements. Using the data provided by military aircraft electronic tracking information, Watkins noticed that several P-8 flights had circled over water areas directly east of Kings Bay on March 6 and a second series of flight slightly south of that area on March 7. "The most obvious purpose of the ship being off the coast is collecting signals intelligence," Watkins said in an email. "The ship is outfitted with more than antennas above the water line," he said. "Viktor Leonov is reported to have magnetic anomaly sensors, acoustic gear to profile American vessels, and have the capability to map the ocean's floor." The ship is likely mapping the paths used by submarines in or out of the base and that also conduct training missions in nearby waters. "It could be looking for uncharted cables that might be connected to previously unknown sensors, or DoD communications cables that reach across the ocean," Watkins said.

Guest Post: Russia Applauds Nuking Florida and Hillary Clinton Paid for It! – Jon Robberson

President Vladimir Putin addressed the Federal Assembly, including the State Duma Parliamentarians, regional governors, members of the Federation Council and other high ranking Russian officials in Moscow on March 1, 2018, eight days ago. His words, however, are timeless in their warrior-profundity and practicality for our future. The Speech: President Putin did not mince words and his words would have resonated with average Americans like a locomotive between the eyes. Except average Americans never heard President Putin’s remarks. Main Stream Media decided for you that Putin’s words and the video that he played to roaring applause from Russia’s elite, are unimportant, even while CNN, MSNBC and the networks carp and cry about purported collusion between President Donald J Trump and Russia. Collusion that never occured. What did occur was Vladimir Putin enumerating classified weapons systems (again to thunderous applause) that are faster, quieter, carry higher payloads and are so stealthy that any foe may be annihilated before detection of said weapons. Also, according to President Putin, “there is no range limitation.” Should Americans be aware of this? President Putin chatted almost casually about a new intercontinental ballistic missile that can circumnavigate the globe multiple times (if necessary) and employ new defensive platforms that leave current missile defense systems mired in The Cold War Era. Multiple roving cameras covered the large audience and there were innumerable expressions of satisfaction and even unconfined glee, among Russia’s elite; the power players’ celebration of a “regional power” graduating to back to its previous global superpower status. President Putin’s sentiments ran verbatim, “Efforts to contain Russia have failed. Face it.” He later remarked, “Nobody listened to us. Listen now.” Once applause and the obvious energy buzzing around Manzeh Central Exhibition Hall mellowed; the volume indicative of loud consensus that will certainly propel Mr Putin into his fourth term as Russia’s President (with an approval rating of 80%), once the hall quieted, President Putin asked that a queued video be played. While cohosting The Hagmann Report alongside Joe Hagmann on Tuesday March 6, 2018, I methodically went through a number of screen captures that tell the story of Russia’s aforementioned hypersonic missile making its way from base, to ignition, to implied destruction. The ICBM shot perfectly vertical into space and began its journey halfway around the globe. But first, back to Russia’s other new toys. Russia has been quietly and intensely in research and development since The United States unilaterally withdrew from the ABM Treaty in 2002. The results? In President Putin’s words, Russian weapons technology has developed to a place where Mr Putin promises a ,”decisive breakthrough.” After pledging Russian military might as a global balancing factor, he noted, “We’re not threatening anyone–Russia’s growing military might is a reliable guarantee of peace on our planet because it ensures the strategic balance in the world.” The new examples of Russia’s military advances include cruise missiles with “unlimited range.” Video footage showed underwater drones, launched from submarines, striking coastal cities. But the jaw-dropper was yet to come. The revealing of Russia’s military technological prowess had such an unusual air of festivity that President Putin even announced that there is a contest being held to name some of the new weapons systems! His message was twofold and clear: Russia has advanced weapons systems that American intelligence agencies and the average American main stream news consumer are totally unaware of. And any attack on Russia or her allies (think, Syria and Iran) will initiate a retaliatory strike from Russia without hesitation. As the video, charting the flight of the hypersonic missile played behind the Russian President, viewers witnessed the circumnavigational flight capability of said missile and the ICBM reentry, followed shorty thereafter by the separation of the nose cone, revealing a MIRV (Multiple Independent Reentry Vehicle) configuration. A strange anticipatory feeling then consumes the viewer. Until one realizes that the independent warheads are descending through the clouds, directly onto the state of Florida! As President Putin’s audience applauded their approval, I wondered, why Florida? The answer: total crippling of CENTCOM (US Military, Middle East Command) and SOCOM (Central and South America Command). But wait! There’s more! President Trump’s treasured Mar a Lago also lies directly in the path of the shotgun-like spread of warheads carrying 200 tons of destructive power each. I promised you that this has something to do with The Clintons; and believe me it does. Skolkovo Innovation Center: Malia Zimmerman, writing for Fox News back on August 10th, 2016 nailed Clinton cash directly to what evolved into President Putin’s confident remarks regarding Russian military innovations (and the perceived potential destruction of Florida). This from Fox News: “A 2010 program headed by then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to help Moscow develop a ‘Russian Silicon Valley’ may instead have drawn some of America’s biggest tech companies into ‘industrial espionage. Zimmerman continues: “Major US corporations like Boeing, Google, General Electric, Cisco and Microsoft – also generous donors to the Clinton’s family foundation – were solicited by Clinton to invest more than a billion dollars in the Skolkovo tech park, outside Moscow, formally called the Skolkovo Innovation Center.” Just to satisfy American tax payers’ curiosity, in fiscal year 2010, both Boeing and General Electric paid ZERO in Federal Taxes, leaving the American Middle Class, through their dutifully paid taxes, effectively subsidizing the venture capital that went to Hillary’s “Russian Silicon Valley” scheme! A scheme that The Russians, as recently as March 1, 2018 seem to have few qualms demonstrating could result in the global thermonuclear drowning of Florida! The Five Year Plan…or “Pay to Play” If you have not seen Peter Schweizer’s documentary “Clinton Cash” then you absolutely must set aside some time and view it on YouTube (before Google deletes it). He also wrote a smash non fiction book by the same title. Laura Italiano, writing for the NY Post on July 31, 2016 quoted “Clinton Cash” author, Schweizer as follows: “I think the idea that you’re going to help develop a Russian version of Silicon Valley, which, by the way, will be controlled by the Russian government, and then not to expect that the technology will be siphoned off for military uses, is incredibly naive.” In her concise investigative piece, Laura Italiano further quoted Peter Schweizer as saying,”Of the 28 US, European and Russian companies that participated in Skolkovo, 17 of them were Clinton Foundation donors.” (Emphasis mine.) The dangerous and quintessentially globalist approach to the traditional post-World War Two enemy of America was all part of a plan cooked up by then Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton and her Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov. These two infamously played with a handprop “reset” button in Geneva in 2009. So the EU and American mega-corporations would pound a big red “easy” button and help Russia get back on her feet (after the CIA took down their economy in the early 1990’s). Almost one billion bucks poured in. A cool million of which was handed over by Cisco, facilitating the money that would, over a five year period, expand Russia’s economic base from fossil fuel, natural gas, rare earth minerals and weapons manufacture into the 21st Century of supertech. The only problem was (is) what is known around think tanks and Pentagon environs as “Dual Use” Technologies. As the name implies (and Iran has demonstrated in no uncertain terms) nations must use extreme discernment when sharing specific technologies. Often civilian innovation and tech-breakthroughs can easily be transferred to military applications. Question: with all we have learned since 2009 from investigative journalists like Doug Hagmann and Dr Jerome Corsi, is it a stretch to assume that American military industrial complex-corporations like General Electric and Boeing would be attracted to signing onto the Clinton-Lavrov “five year plan” in order to gain front row access to the US Secretary of State? Furthermore, willingly joining Cisco in cutting multi million dollar checks…to future global competition. And since when does America engage in “five year plans?” The Fate of Florida The good news is that according to notes presented to me on March 6, 2018 by Doug Hagmann, “By 2012, US military researchers were warning that Skolkovo ventures include work related to Russian defense capabilities.” The bad news is that the interim period between 2009 and 2012 (let alone six years hence) may as well be eons when compared to President Putin’s uber-confident description of the new hypersonic missile system that, he said, “heads for its target like a meteorite.” Update March 9, 2018 11:41am EST: Dr Peter Vincent Pry wrote an excellent piece on the specifics of Russia’s nuclear capability that is posted at All News Pipeline. I highly recommend supplementing this piece with Dr Pry’s article.

Warning: China Is Close To Complete Domination Over 5G And Internet Of Things

Written By: Robert Kraychik March 9, 2018

NOTE: President trump blocked the Qualcomm takeover based on security concerns. China’s Technocrats are playing chess with a far-reaching strategy to dominate the system of Globalization, while America plays checkers, worrying only about the next ‘hop’. If the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) does not block the Qualcomm takeover, China will move into the vacuum and dominate the industry. ⁃ TN Editor According to Chang, Broadcom — a Singapore-based semiconductor manufacturer — will likely break up Qualcomm into constituent businesses if it succeeds in its attempted hostile takeover of its San Diego-based industrial competitor. Such a breakup, he added, would destroy America’s ability to compete in the development of cutting-edge wireless telecommunication technologies. “At this moment, the United States and China are competing to develop the standards [and] chips that will power 5G wireless communications,” said Chang. “5G will be much faster than the current 4G, and also 5G will have much greater connectivity. So most devices in your home, workplace, and car are going to be controlled by 5G. There’s only one American company that can win the 5G race, and that’s Qualcomm.” Chang added, “What we have seen is Broadcom — which is now a Singapore company [and] probably will domesticate into the U.S. — is trying to take over Qualcomm, and Broadcom has a business model that shareholders love because what they do is buy companies and break them apart [to] realize the underlying value that has been trapped in the pieces. That’s great for shareholder value, but it’s terrible if you’re trying to compete with the Chinese to develop 5G services, and Qualcomm is a national treasure because it has such an emphasis on innovation and patents, and that is why it is such a leader in global wireless.” Elaborating, Chang stated that “if Broadcom succeeds in taking over Qualcomm and breaking it up, Qualcomm will not be able to compete effectively against Chinese for 5G. That means the Chinese Huawei — which is nominally a private company but backed by the communist party — will win 5G hands down because there will be very little competition, which means that your toaster probably will be communicating with Beijing in the future if Broadcom takes over Qualcomm.” Chang added, “I’m a little bit uncomfortable with the U.S. national policy supporting one company, but, unfortunately, that’s the situation we now have. It’s either Qualcomm or the Chinese. It’s that simple.” In a column titled “Why the bid to buy Qualcomm poses a dire threat to US national security,” published Friday, Chang described the stakes of the developmental race to develop 5G technologies: “The company controlling 5G will control much of the world’s communications for a decade.” “The Trump administration should immediately step in to stop what is the first step of a hostile takeover,” wrote Chang. The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) should review the tentative Broadcom-Qualcomm deal given that “the consequences of a successful Broadcom takeover [of Qualcomm] will surely be severe for the U.S.,” Chang also wrote.

Third Coastal Storm in 10 Days Could Affect the East Coast Early Next Week

By Chris Dolce Mar 8 2018 04:00 PM EST weather.com

Story Highlights

- The East Coast could be facing another coastal storm early next week.

- This would be the third coastal storm in 10 days, following Winter Storms Riley and Quinn.

- The magnitude of impacts, if any, from this third potential storm is unknown at this time.

March is off to a roaring start for the East Coast with two strong coastal storms in five days and another potential one looming for early next week. First was Winter Storm Riley, which brought destructive winds, heavy snow and severe coastal flooding to the Northeast late last week. Now Winter Storm Quinn will continue to dump heavy snow on the Northeast Thursday. (MORE: Winter Storm Central) After Quinn departs Thursday night, we'll turn our attention to the next potential East Coast storm candidate. To be clear, the impacts, if any, from this potential storm early next week are unknown at this time. Specifics on the forecast will hinge on how the upper-level weather pattern evolves this weekend. Specifically, the evolution of energy in the upper atmosphere that is currently thousands of miles away from the eastern United States over far western Canada. That energy will first bring snow to the Mountain West as it slides east on Friday, including the Cascades and the northern Rockies. Thereafter, the energy will spread into the eastern states this weekend, and, once again, low pressure could strengthen near or off the East Coast early next week. Some cold air should still be in place, partially due to the fresh snowpack from both Riley and Quinn. Depending on its location, strength and track, the low-pressure system could be yet another coastal storm for parts of the Eastern Seaboard. The setup is uncertain, so we do not know for sure whether there will be another round of snow, rain, coastal flooding and strong winds early next week in portions of the East. In general, a low tracking slower and closer to the East Coast would increase the odds of significant impacts. Conversely, if the low remains weak and moves progressively out to sea, that would prevent any harsh weather from occurring early next week. Neither of those scenarios or something in between can be ruled out just yet. In fact, model guidance Thursday afternoon widened the spectrum of possibilities from a coastal storm to a distance miss.

Thanks To Barack Obama, Russia Has Achieved The Holy Grail Of Nuclear Superiority: 'Escalation Dominance'

- Russia's New Third Generation Nuclear Weapons Have No US Counterparts

Submitted to All News Pipeline by Dr Peter Vincent Pry March 8, 2018

On March 1, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin delivered a speech that effectively declared Russia has overwhelming nuclear superiority and war-winning capability against the United States, NATO, and the entire world. While President Obama neglected modernizing the U.S. nuclear deterrent, questing for a “world without nuclear weapons” — Russia achieved what the USSR never could against any U.S. president during the Cold War, the holy grail of nuclear superiority, what strategists call “escalation dominance.” Escalation dominance means being able to prevail with superior nuclear capabilities in any crisis or conflict across the full spectrum of tactical and strategic possibilities. Dr. Stephen Blank, former Russian security studies professor at the U.S. Army War College noted that Russia’s strategy is “to demonstrate nuclear capability ostentatiously throughout all the stages of any crisis. Should war ensue, escalating to deescalate is part of that process … but … the broader strategy is one of escalation control to inhibit any Western response to attempted Russian faits accompli.” Escalation dominance also means being able to win without war through nuclear diplomacy, nuclear blackmail, and nuclear terror. Not just during crises, but in the daily lives of nations, states “surrender” to escalation dominance when awesome nuclear threats overshadow every decisionas in NATO’s virtual appeasement of Russian aggression in Crimea and Ukraine. Escalation dominance shapes the psychological geography of international relations and world order. While Obama was content to allow the aged and obsolete U.S. nuclear deterrent and the scientific-industrial nuclear weapons infrastructure to wither away, Dr. Blank describes the nuclear sinews of Russian escalation dominance: “At present, Russia is running over 20 production lines for short, medium, and long-range nuclear weapons that are to be tailored to any kind of contingency ranging from low-yield to high-yield weapons.” Russia has also deployed Third Generation nuclear weapons designed for special effects — like electromagnetic pulse (EMP), neutron and x-ray kill, and “fallout free” battlefield mini-nukes — that have no U.S. counterparts. Dictator Putin’s speech is an act of escalation dominance and nuclear blackmail aimed at the United States. His nuclear presentation began with a video of Russia’s Sarmat missile, dubbed by NATO Satan-II: a super-heavy ICBM capable of hurtling a payload 10-20 times heavier than the U.S. Minuteman, including 14 or more megaton-class warheads and penetration aids. Pavel Felgengauer, often a mouthpiece for Russia’s general staff, provided additional details in a March 1 article, writing, “Sarmat will have an ‘unlimited range’ thanks to taking a so-called suborbital trajectory. While ... ICBMs launched from Russia at the U.S. would have traveled over the North Pole, the Sarmat will pass above the South Pole to arrive from ‘the other side’ thus baffling U.S. missile defenses.” Satan-II is probably capable of delivering Russia’s new 100-megaton warhead on a south polar trajectory to make a surprise EMP attack blacking-out North America, simultaneously destroying satellites vital to U.S. military and economic power. Another super-weapon revealed by Putin is a hypersonic maneuverable warhead called Avangard. Felgengauer: “Such a warhead may be attached essentially to any ICBM. During reentry, it will perform high-speed maneuvers to avoid U.S. missile defense systems and then successfully home in to kill its designated target.” Avangard can impart to Russian ICBMs cruise missile-type accuracy, striking bullseye or a few meters from target. Avangard accuracy would enable Russian ICBMs to destroy U.S. hard targets, like missile silos, with a single very low-yield or even non-nuclear warhead. Theoretically, just 30 Satan-IIs armed with 15 Avangard warheads could destroy all 450 Minuteman silos — a kill ratio of 15-to-1. If low-yield or non-nuclear warheads are used, Russia could make a disarming first strike cleanly, causing little collateral damage and few civilian casualties. Another Russian super-weapon confirmed by Putin is a robot submarine armed with a single enormous nuclear warhead for detonation underwater, to destroy aircraft carrier groups, submarines, or inundate cities, described by Felgengauer as an “unmanned doomsday drone.” Called “Kanyon” by the Pentagon and “Ocean Multipurpose System Status-6” by the Kremlin, according to Felgengauer: “The underwater autonomous torpedo can travel at speeds of up to 85 kilometers per hour (some 56 knots), go as deep as one kilometer, and has a range of up to 10,000 kilometers ... The drone may carry a massive warhead of up to 100 megatons and is designed to destroy, according to Putin, U.S. aircraft carrier groups or ‘coastal infrastructure.’” Nuclear shockwaves travel much faster and further underwater than through air. So Kanyon’s kill radius against U.S. carriers and submarines is enormous. U.S. missile submarines at sea were the only Triad deterrent relatively invulnerable during the Cold War. Felgengauer describes Kanyon’s potential if used for doomsday: “The blast would create a gigantic radioactive tsunami, destroying and contaminating large stretches of densely populated U.S. territory, like New York, Washington, Los Angeles, Boston and so on, leaving them uninhabitable for centuries or millenia.” “Moscow will negotiate with Washington and the West from a position of nuclear superiority,” Felgengauer writes. “Putin called on the West to admit defeat, sit down and negotiate an end of sanctions and a new world order … otherwise its doomsday nuclear super-weapons are ready.” Welcome to Russia’s new world order of nuclear blackmail. This story originally published here. Dr. Peter Vincent Pry was chief of staff of the Congressional EMP Commission. He served on the staff of the House Armed Services Committee and at the CIA.

David Wilkerson—IN ONE HOUR EVERYTHING IS GOING TO CHANGE

David Wilkerson September 3, 2007

The prophet Isaiah warns us that in the last days God is going to “turn the world upside down.” He declares, “Behold, the Lord maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down” (Isaiah 24:1). According to this prophecy, sudden judgment is coming upon the earth, and it will change everything in a single hour. Within that short span, the whole world will witness fast-falling destruction upon a city and a nation, and the world will never be the same. If you are attached to material things — if you love this world and the things of it — you won’t want to hear what Isaiah has prophesied. In fact, even to the most righteous of God’s people, what Isaiah says might seem unthinkable. Many would surely ask, “How can an entire world be stricken in one hour?” If we didn’t believe the Bible is God’s pure Word, few of us would take Isaiah’s prophecy seriously. But Scripture makes it clear: in a single hour, the world is going to change. The church is going to change. And every individual on earth is going to change. The apostle John gives a similar warning in Revelation. He speaks of destructive judgment coming upon a city and nation: “In one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her…. For in one hour so great riches is come to nought” (Revelation 18:8, 17). In Isaiah’s prophecy, the city under judgment is cast into confusion. Every house is shut up, with no one coming or going. “The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in” (Isaiah 24:10). The entire city is left desolate: “In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction” (24:12). All entrances and exits to the city are gone. The passage indicates that a fire has come, a blast that has shaken the very foundations of the earth (see 24:6). We who live in New York City know something about this kind of scene. When the Twin Towers were attacked, the ominous fires and smoke could be seen ascending to heaven for miles. Recently, New Yorkers panicked as a mass of steam erupted from below a city street. People ran in all directions screaming, “Is this it? Is this the end-all attack?” Today, multitudes of secular prophets are saying a nuclear attack is inevitable. The target they mention most often is New York, but it could happen in any major city: London, Paris, Tel Aviv, Washington. Neither Isaiah nor John names the city upon which destructive judgment falls. I don’t intend this message to frighten anyone. Let me make clear at this point: I don’t intend this message to frighten anyone. Paul tells us that as disciples of Jesus Christ, we have already passed from death into life. We who call on Jesus as Lord should be confident that no matter what happens in this world, his shed blood saves and redeems us. Therefore, we are not to fear any newscast, but rather to be attentive to what the Lord is doing in the world. Like many people, I hear grievous reports that make me want to tune everything out. But the truth is, God moves in the midst of such times, and through them, he speaks warnings to all who would hear his voice. Isaiah’s prophecy points clearly to our generation. I believe, along with many eminent Bible scholars, that Isaiah’s prophecy points to the last days. By that, I mean our present time. In short, sudden judgment is coming, and Scripture strongly indicates it is now at the door. At this point, you may be wondering: “How can we be sure we’re the generation this prophecy points to?” We can know by two reasons that such judgments are imminent: A growing number of prophets warn of an apocalyptic disaster at the door. When I use the word “prophets,” I speak not just of those in the church. I’m talking also about “secular prophets.” There are several precedents for secular prophets in Scripture. God used Assyria as his rod of correction with Israel. And he appointed King Cyrus as his servant to assist Israel: “(The Lord) saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure” (Isaiah 44:28). Likewise today, God uses secular prophets to send warnings. These become “his prophets” for a season. And their prophecies can be harder than those delivered by believers. The message I’m writing here is mild compared to the prophecies being delivered by all manner of secular voices. Just check your newspaper or radio reports. “Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7). Sudden destruction comes when the cup of violence overflows. Sensuality, perversion, and greed are running rampant throughout our society. Yet, when God sent the Flood upon the earth, it was because of a worldwide eruption of violence: “The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence” (Genesis 6:11). Right now, there are numerous wars and bloody uprisings taking place around the globe. Yet foremost in my mind is the violence being waged against children worldwide: I think of the sexual violence of pedophiles. Children all over the world are being raped, kidnapped and forced into enslavement in the global sex trade. Recently, a pedophile in the U.S. was discovered running a website that advises other pedophiles on the easiest places to pick up children. There is no law in place to stop this man. The world’s largest church denomination has spent hundreds of millions of dollars to settle the claims of those who were molested in childhood by clergy. Tell me, how long will God endure the pitiful cries of children who are molested by those who would represent Christ? Thousands of children in Africa are being slaughtered in tribal wars, hacked to death by machetes. Young boys — even those under ten years of age — are enlisted into tribal militias and forced to murder men in initiation rites. Here in the U.S., the blood of millions of aborted babies cries out from the ground. Reports of school murders no longer shock many of us but continue to terrorize our children. We may grow hardened to such reports, but God’s heart is grieved by them. I tell you, there is no worse violence than the brutalizing of children. Heaven is crying out, “Woe, woe! Your judgments have no cure.” 1. In one hour, God is going to change the whole world. A sudden cataclysmic event will strike, the first of the final judgments of God. This great event will cause the earth to reel. And Isaiah says that when it hits, there will be no place to escape: “The lofty [proud] city, he layeth it low…even to the ground; he bringeth it even to the dust” (Isaiah 26:5). “The inhabitants of the earth are burned” (24:6). Once this happens, utter chaos will erupt. All civic activities will stop, and society will descend into massive disorder. Government agencies will be helpless to restore any kind of sanity. No state troopers, no national guard, no army will be able to bring order to the upheaval. You well remember that when the Twin Towers were destroyed, help poured into New York from all over the world. An army of people came to assist in whatever way they could. But the scene in Isaiah’s prophecy is different: this calamity is clearly beyond humankind’s capacity to respond. Once this judgment strikes, it will devastate the economy. Rich merchants will stand by watching in torment, weeping and mourning, as they face bankruptcy. In an instant, all the wealth they amassed will be reduced to nothing. John describes the scene: “The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city… For in one hour so great riches is come to nought” (Revelation 18:15–17). Overnight, all buying and selling will cease. Every restaurant and bar will be shut down, and all drinking and music making will end. Indeed, every trace of mirth and delight, joy and gladness, will vanish: “All the merryhearted do sigh. The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth. They shall not drink wine with a song…. The mirth of the land is gone” (Isaiah 24:7–9, 11). Yes, this is a picture of gloom and doom. But it is not my prophecy. This word was given by the Holy Spirit of Almighty God, to be delivered by his righteous prophet Isaiah. Even the secular world is preparing for it to happen. Billions are being spent on homeland security in the U.S., England, Europe, and Israel. Why? Military experts warn that a world-impacting terrorist attack is sure to come. You may ask: “Why would the whole world change if a nuclear attack occurs in just one city?” It will happen because of the fear of retaliation. If a rogue nation sends such an attack, you can be sure that within hours that nation will be wiped out. Consider the plan Israel has in place, known as the Samson Option. The moment a nuclear warhead is launched against them, within moments Israel will unleash nuclear missiles to devastate the capital cities of all enemy states. The world has become a ticking bomb, and time is quickly running out. 2. In one hour, God is going to change the church. This hour of devastation will suddenly change churches, whether they are alive or dead. Isaiah writes, “There shall be the shaking as of an olive tree” (Isaiah 24:13). The image is of God shaking an olive tree after it has been picked of fruit. In short, he’s going to shake everything that can be shaken, sparing nothing. It will be a time of cataclysmic destruction and overwhelming darkness. So, you ask, “What about God’s people in the midst of all this? What will happen to the church?” Isaiah gives us an incredible word about what will happen with believers. In the midst of the terrible shaking, a song will be heard, and its sound will grow steadily stronger. Suddenly, in that darkest of hours, a worldwide chorus of voices will sing praises to the majesty of God: “They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the Lord, they shall cry aloud from the sea” (24:14). Do you get the picture? There will be panic everywhere. Men’s hearts will fail them for fear, as fires belch smoke seen for hundreds of miles. Disorder and chaos will reign on all sides. Yet amid the devastating fires and calamity, the world will hear a glorious song being sung: “Glorify ye the Lord in the fires, even the name of the Lord God of Israel… From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous [One]” (Isaiah 24:15–16). A holy remnant is going to awaken, and a song will be born in the fire. Instead of panicking, the people of God will be praising his awesome majesty. Imagine it: in the darkest hour of all time, a collective voice will rise by the millions out of every nation, not in fear or agony, but in joyful praise to the Lord. How will this happen, you ask? In one hour, God is going to regenerate and restore his church. Dry bones will shake and rattle, and the righteous will be awakened, as the Holy Spirit calls multitudes of lukewarm believers back to their first love. In his mercy, he’s going to rouse those who have neglected him, ignoring his Word, avoiding prayer, perhaps even contemplating divorce. Suddenly, their souls will be flooded with pangs of remorse and godly sorrow. And many will fall on their knees, crying out in repentance. There will be a revival of glorifying God’s majesty. And the song of this revival will be heard from the uttermost parts of the earth. East, west, north and south — from Arab lands to China, Indonesia, Africa and all parts of the earth — a glorious song will rise up from the midst of the fires. In one day’s time, those who survived the fires are going to be singing a new song throughout the world. Isaiah 25 tells us wonderful miracles will come in this time, as “God makes all things new.” All around the world, the Lord’s people are going to “feast” on his Word: “In this mountain shall the Lord of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined” (Isaiah 25:6). “And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the veil that is spread over all nations” (25:7). Right now, in this time of prosperity, the world’s masses seem to be covered with a veil, unable to see the truth of Jesus Christ. But when God rises up to shake the world through judgment, the shrouds covering the minds of billions will be cast aside. The veil of darkness will be removed, and many will see the Lord in his glory. The Holy Spirit won’t force Christ upon these opened eyes and hearts; rather, a remnant is going to rise up from among them. I believe the darkest shroud-coverings today are over the eyes and hearts of youth worldwide. This is especially true of college-age students, whose faith has been bombarded for up to four years. Over that time their minds have been indoctrinated by godless professors in classrooms where belief is attacked, mocked and scorned. Now, these young men’s and women’s faith has been shipwrecked. They leave college convinced God is dead. But in one hour of devastation — nuclear, economic and social — all such hypocritical veils are going to fall away. Those same professors who mocked them will realize, as they face the possibility of death, a choice must be made: “What about eternity? Is there life after death?” They’re going to look for someone to explain to them all that’s happening. When the song is sung, it’s going to be heard by young people from every walk of life, from every nation under the sun. Many will harden their hearts and curse God at the sound of this song, but multitudes of others will join in the singing of his majesty. 3. In one hour, God is going to change us as individuals. In a single hour, the focus of our lives will be changed. We’ll no longer obsess about our own adversities and troubles. Suddenly, so many things that we held dear will no longer be of any value to us. Why? In that hour, everyone will be in the same boat: “It shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him” (Isaiah 24:2). The sudden judgment that comes will not be a respecter of anyone. Rather, it is going to touch all who are within the realm of its fury. Presidents, kings, the world’s richest and most famous — all will tremble just like the poorest of the earth. And this cataclysmic event will bring to naught every idol, purging iniquity and tearing down all false altars: “By this [the calamity] therefore shall the iniquity of Jacob be purged; and this is all the fruit to take away his sin; when he maketh all the stones of the altar as chalkstones that are beaten in sunder, the groves and images shall not stand up [be left standing]” (Isaiah 27:9). The world’s most prominent idol is money, and right now America is facing a monstrous financial disaster. Investors are scrambling to move their money out of high-risk funds, and mortgage companies are going bankrupt. One recent financial headline read, “Abandon Ship!” Everyone is selling and nobody is buying. Many households are in a panic, as overnight their lives are changing. I think of the president of a multi-billion-dollar hedge fund, who recently put up for sale his 142-foot yacht and his sixteen-bedroom mansion in Aspen, Colorado. His fund had dried up virtually overnight. The day is coming when sports will be the last thing on people’s minds. I have nothing against sports, but soon there will be no more 250-million-dollar deals for athletes when so much of the world is starving. All idols will come crashing down, crushed to dust, and the playing field will be leveled. The richest and the poorest alike will face the same conditions. It will all happen within a day. “When they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape” (1 Thessalonians 5:3). Why such apocalyptic warnings? You may wonder: what good can come of these prophetic messages? Why should anyone have to live under such anxiety? I remind you, Jesus warned Jerusalem of sudden devastation to come upon that city. It was going to be burned to the ground, with over a million people murdered. Christ explained his warning: “I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe” (John 14:29). He was saying, in essence, “When it happens, you’ll know there is a God who loves you and forewarned you.” Paul calls such warnings “light,” insights that expel darkness. He says, in short: “You are children of light, because you know what’s coming in the future. So, when destruction comes, and there’s panic all around, you will have the calm of the Holy Spirit. Something will quicken inside you, and you’ll remember, ‘God warned me.’ This prophecy isn’t a message of wrath to God’s people, but a wakeup call to begin preparing.” “God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him” (1 Thessalonians 5:9–10). Paul is speaking here of a time of possible destruction. Therefore, he says, “Comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do” (5:11). In this day of prosperity, nobody wants to hear a message like Isaiah’s. I certainly don’t want to hear it. But we cannot ignore it, because it is here at our door. In such times, Paul says, when we have knowledge that sudden destruction is coming, we are not to tremble or sorrow as the world does. Instead, we are to comfort one another in faith, knowing that God rules over every aspect of our lives. “Be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation” (5:8). Paul instructs, “Arm yourself with faith. Build up your belief now, before the day comes. Learn your song, and you’ll be able to sing it in your fire.” “Glorify ye the Lord in the fires, even the name of the Lord God of Israel” (Isaiah 24:15). This is the hope of our most holy faith: our Lord causes a song to come out of the darkest of times. Start now to build up your holy faith in him, and learn to praise his majesty quietly in your heart. When you sing your song, it will strengthen and encourage your brothers and sisters. And it will testify to the world: “Our Lord reigns over the Flood!”

You are going to see much more happening overseas now much more.  Russia, they have been poked in the eye so long they are ready to fight.  North Korea has been mocked for so long they are ready to fight.  They are not afraid of those ships that are out there; they were out there during the Korean War.  Oh, wake up, wake up, you need to turn to me and not to your own ways, for the old ways never did work etc

Keep a very careful spiritual eye on Russia, that is right, I didn’t say North Korea, I said Russia, Russia.  Listen to the news and you will notice how she is building and building and testing and testing.  Soon she will strike.

Russian Superweapons

By Hal Lindsey

President Trump’s critics seem to have their wish. The Cold War is on again! Over the last few days, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a series of new superweapons. Among those weapons is what he called an “invincible,” nuclear-capable, intercontinental cruise missile that travels at 20 times the speed of sound. He said, “No defense systems will be able to withstand it.” According to Russian media, the so-called “Satan 2” can wipe out an area the size of Texas or France. Putin also showed off next-generation ICBMs, underwater drones, and nuclear depth charges. Russia recently announced development of a nuclear-armed torpedo that can take out aircraft carriers as well as coastal cities. “Efforts to contain Russia have failed, face it,” Putin said. There is good evidence that Russia is at least close to putting these new devices into production. The US must assume that the weapons are as capable as advertised. That means a new arms race, and a far more dangerous world. Donald J. Trump is not a traditional conservative. In the past, conservatives tended to take a hard line with the Russians and, before that, with the Soviet Union. Liberals, on the other hand, emphasized the need for communication and cooperation. Clearly, there are appropriate situations for each of those approaches. Before the Trump presidential campaign, you could usually guess where someone stood on Russia by looking at their other political positions. That’s still true in 2018, but the roles have been reversed. Trump and a new generation of conservatives want friendship and cooperation with Russia — the liberals seem itching for a fight. The Trump Administration, and before that, the Trump campaign, were roundly criticized for not being tough enough on Russia. During 2016, Trump told Bill O’Reilly, “If we can make a great deal for our country and get along with Russia that would be a tremendous thing. I would love to try it.” In July of that year, he said, “I would treat Vladimir Putin firmly, but there’s nothing I can think of that I’d rather do than have Russia friendly.” Later, he said, “Wouldn’t it be a great thing if we could get along with Russia?” In an October debate, Hillary Clinton called Trump, Putin’s “puppet.” In that same debate, Trump accused Clinton of playing a game of nuclear “chicken” with the Russians. So, Donald Trump, champion of conservatives, has tried to take a relatively liberal position concerning Putin and the Russians. At the same time, liberals have suddenly decided it’s time to get tough with Russia. They accuse Trump of going easy on Putin. They claim his softer approach comes from making a deal with Putin to help him get elected — the so-called Russian collusion. The problem is that their best evidence so far does not hold up. Much of the media agrees with the liberals that the President’s peaceful overtures to Russia raise a red flag. CNN ran a long article that included 80 quotes of Trump talking positively about Putin. The quotes started in 2013 when Trump, the owner of the Miss Universe pageant, held that pageant in Moscow. Most of the 2016 quotes come from the campaign trail. All politicians use a standard stump speech, and Trump’s standard speech called for America to try to work cooperatively with Russia. But CNN said, “His glowing statements on Putin have become central in stoking the suspicion that he and his campaign were somehow connected to Russian interference in the election.” So far in his dealings with Moscow, President Trump has shown no evidence of wanting to give away the store — as have some of his predecessors. If he or she does not diminish America’s strategic position, a President should be allowed to work toward a peaceful relationship with a former enemy without being called a traitor. Calling for peaceful negotiation should not be seen as evidence of illegal collusion. These Russian next-generation weapons have been in the works for years, if not decades. That means we can’t blame them on President Trump, or his critics. But it clearly hurts the US position when any overture of peace the President may extend toward Russia is presented to the US public as a sign of collusion. Russia’s new superweapons, along with those of China, are quickly changing the world’s balance of power. The Russians’ cyber campaign to disrupt US elections, along with this massive new upgrade to their weapons of mass destruction, mean that Trump will have to deal with them as enemies before he can work with them as friends. And make no mistake, they are a formidable enemy. Bible prophecy presents Russia as one of the major players on the world stage during the last days — capable of quickly unleashing awesome destructive force. Like the United States, Israel has a whole arsenal of missile defense systems — all of them apparently made obsolete by Russia’s new missiles. In fact, the Bible says that Russia’s future attack on Israel will not be stopped by human military might. They will be defeated by God Himself. The countdown to the end of the age continues.
