On a recent Sunday morning in my father’s hometown of Charlotte, N.C., a group of atheists gathered for their first Sunday Assembly, what they are proudly calling a “godless congregation.” They plan to meet regularly, one of more than 60 similar Sunday Assembly groups who have organized in cities around the country as well as internationally. At the Charlotte group’s inaugural event, they played John Lennon’s song “Imagine” as their theme. The lyrics begin with the words, “Imagine there’s no heaven …”
Instead of the peace, harmony, and love that Lennon envisioned in his song, what I imagine—in fact, what I know from God’s Word—is that a world without Heaven, without God, is a nightmare filled with wickedness, torment, and eventually eternal punishment. Lennon’s dream of utopia is really a vision of Hell.
Friends, we are surrounded by people every day who are destined for eternity separated from God. They are living “separated from Christ, … having no hope and without God in the world” (Ephesians 2:12, ESV). “They will suffer the punishment of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might” (2 Thessalonians 1:9). We must sound the warning. We must reach them with the hope of Heaven, before it’s too late.
Think about how little hope there is in our world today. In Iraq, under ISIS, there is not much hope. In West Africa, living under Ebola, people are losing hope. Here in the U.S., under widespread drug and alcohol abuse, depression, chronic unemployment, violent crime, and the downward moral spiral, hope seems elusive.
The ultimate hope is to know that our sins are forgiven, that one day we will be in the presence of God for eternity. There is no greater hope regardless of what happens on earth.
When Jesus met the rich young ruler, the man asked, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” (Luke 18:18). That is still the question on the lips of millions of human beings. How can anyone face eternity with no hope? Jesus Christ is the only hope—no one else can take away our sins. Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).
This November, we’ve got a great tool for the nationwide My Hope 2014 with Billy Graham evangelistic outreach—a powerful new 30-minute film called Heaven. You’ll want to watch this with your friends and invite people to see it, especially those who are unsaved and have no ultimate hope. They’ll see gripping, real-life stories of people who desired lasting hope and found it in Jesus Christ, and they will hear a clear and loving presentation of the Gospel. As they watch the program, you pray and see what God will do.
Churches and individuals all over America are planning ways to show Heaven during November and beyond. If your church is not participating yet in My Hope 2014, it’s not too late. Go to MyHopeWithBillyGraham.org today and sign up. You can get a free Heaven DVD, whether for your church or yourself, or download it after October 27. In the film, my father asks a pointed question: “Is it right for me to warn you what Jesus taught and what the Bible teaches from cover to cover? Suppose you were a drowning man and I have the Gospel lifeboat. I’m not going to let you drown if I can help it!”
The Bible teaches us that “he who wins souls is wise” (Proverbs 11:30, NKJV). Jesus talked about the futility of building up treasure on earth, where “moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal.” Rather, He said, the wise investment is to “lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven” (Matthew 6:19–20).
God can use your prayers for a lost person, your invitation to someone to hear the Gospel, and your financial gift to make an eternal difference. The times today are so difficult—the world is moving so fast that it can be absolutely frightening. I hope you take advantage of this opportunity to invest in the souls of men.
My father will be turning 96 on November 7, and we are thankful to still have him with us. Even though he is weak physically, he is doing reasonably well for someone his age. He is so grateful for all who stand with this ministry in their prayers and support.
May God richly bless you,
Now that is setting the stage for the rest of this story. You got now this Levite, young kid from Bethlehem as a professional religious priest, personal priest of Micah in his house.
Now, in those days there was no king in Israel: and the tribe of the Danites sought an inheritance to dwell in (Jdg 18:1);
For they were unable to drive the Philistines out of that territory of Ashdod, Ashkelon, Gaza and that beautiful valley area. And they were only, at this point, occupied a small little territory, oh, twenty miles from Jerusalem, fifteen miles from Jerusalem towards Tel Aviv, the little valley of Eshcol. But this whole territory was still occupied by the Philistines and they couldn't drive them out and so they were beginning to look for another place to live. And so they sent out six men to sort of look out over the whole country to see if there isn't another place that they might move that the tribe of Dan might inhabit in order that they can have more territory for farming and all because that area that they had taken just wasn't sufficient for their needs.
And so these men started north and they came to Ephraim, to the house of Micah, and they stayed there. And when they were by thou house of Micah, they knew the voice of the young man the Levite: and so they turned in, they said unto him, What brought you here? And how much are you making in this place? And what are you doing? And he said unto them, Well, I came to Micah, and he needed a priest, so he hired me [and he gives me ten shekels of silver a year, a new suit, all my food], and I'm his priest. And they said, Well ask counsel of God, for us, that we might know whether we're gonna be prosperous in our search. And so the priest said unto them, Go in peace: before the LORD is our way wherein you go (Jdg 18:2-6).
In other words, go in peace God is going before you and He's gonna prosper you in your way.
So the five men departed, and they came to Laish, and they saw the people that were there, how they dwelt carelessly, after the manner of the Zidonians, they were quiet and they were secure; and there was no magistrate in the land, that might put them to shame for any thing; and they were far from the Zidonians, and had no business with any man (Jdg 18:7).
So they found the city of people there in Laish and the people were just really living very carelessly. They didn't have business or trade with anybody else. They were a long way from Zidon, actually, they were clear over the Lebanese mountain range from Zidon and they were isolated and really they looked to be an easy prey.
Now they dwelt in a beautiful section of land. Right past the city there flowed the Jordan River and it was near the headwaters of Jordan. So there was no water pollution, the water was clear; it's great and there's good farming territory around there and it's just a beautiful valley, fertile valley.
And they said, "Wow, look at this, you know, be nice to live up here." So they came back to their tribe and they described the place that they had found; it's beauty and its advantages. Ah, there's plenty of water, good area to live and all and it's beautiful, and it really is. It's one of the most beautiful places in Israel.
And so they sent back an army of six hundred men in order to take this city. And so when they came back to the mount of Ephraim, they came back again to this priest. And these fellows went in and they said, "Hey fellow, look we need a priest, our tribe. Wouldn't it be better for you to be a priest over a whole tribe than a priest in just one family? We'd give you a better salary."
So the young man went with them but he ripped off the little idols and all that were there and took them with him. And so when Micah came home he found that the idols had been ripped off, the priest was gone, and so some of his neighbors gathered together and they were having big conflict and said, "Well they went that direction." And so Micah went chasing after them. And these guys are six hundred tough guys heading off for war.
And Micah came up, said, "Hey, what's the big idea ripping me off, taking away my priest and taking away my silver idols?" and so forth and he was really laying it on them.
And they said, "Hey man, looking for trouble? You might as well, you better go home, there's no sense getting hurt." And so he looked around and saw all these guys with their swords and everything else and so he decided to go home. Wisdom the better part of valor.
And so they went up with this young man and they came to Laish and they captured it. They destroyed the inhabitants and the tribe of Dan, a good portion of them, moved on up and inhabited the upper part of this Hula Valley where the headwaters of the Jordan River come out from Mount Hermon. And thus, that became the territory of the tribe of Dan and the city was called Dan, and the river itself was named Jordan or "out of Dan," because there is the headwaters of the Jordan River and it comes out of Dan. And so that river became named Jordan, "out of Dan."
So that is just one of the little stories that is told here. And the second story that gives us an insight to the confusion that existed, both civil and religious, during this particular time has to do with a story of a man who was a Levite.
Next is the explanation of Book of Judges Chapter 19
Liberals have not one honest bone in their body. Watch the video.
Pope Francis addressed the Pontifical Academy of Sciences at the Vatican on Monday and what he said may shock many Christians, though not those of us who know what he truly is. The Pope said that God is not "a magician with a magic wand" and that the theories of evolution and the Big Bang, which have never been proven, are real.
According to the Independent:
Francis explained that both scientific theories were not incompatible with the existence of a creator – arguing instead that they "require it".
"When we read about Creation in Genesis, we run the risk of imagining God was a magician, with a magic wand able to do everything. But that is not so," Francis said.
He added: "He created human beings and let them develop according to the internal laws that he gave to each one so they would reach their fulfillment.
Well, God is no magician and He needs no magic wand for sure, but then the Bible is not the authority for this Pope, nor has it ever been the ultimate authority of any Pope. These comments should come as no surprise.
While he rightly says that Christians should reject that the world came into existence by chance, he then goes on to side with those who don't believe in the actual Creation account of Genesis as written. He declares that the Big Bang is compatible with Creation and that God carries out the Creation by means of the Big Bang and evolution, but fails to explain just how that is accomplished.
At the heart of the issue is the idea of epistemology. Where do we get our knowledge from? Do we get it from science with a preconceived notion that there is no God, or do we get it from God Himself and science comes along to back up that information?
The reality is that both Christians and atheists alike can view the same exact information and yet filter it through their worldview. When it comes the beginning of matter, neither was around to view what brought it into existence nor can they recreate it. So, the reality is that both views rely on…. Faith. Frankly, it takes a lot more imagination to buy into evolution than it does to believe that God merely spoke and things came into existence and over the course of a few days He created all things. However, the difference between the two views is that the one who believes in Creation has a reason for the purpose of Creation. That reason was to glorify God and that He might demonstrate His attributes in the course of history towards His Creation.
But continuing along with Pope Francis, he said that the Big Bang "doesn't contradict the intervention of a divine Creator, but demands it." Really?
My friend Dean Garrison found these comments by Wayne Jackson at The Christian Courier, which I think sum up how I tend to respond to these claims:
Are the Bible and the big bang theory in agreement? No. And informed persons, on both sides of the issue are aware of this fact. Paul Steidl, an astronomer, has noted:
[N]o astronomers would ever think of the big bang as the creation event of Genesis. The big bang was invented specifically for the purpose of doing away with the creation event. An astronomer would laugh at the naivety of anyone who chose to equate the two events (1979, 197).
Evolutionist Paul Davies, in a discussion of the big bang, says that this theory of origins "differs greatly in detail from the biblical version." He then quotes Ernan McMullin of Notre Dame University:
What one cannot say is, first, that the Christian doctrine of creation "supports" the Big Bang model, or second, that the Big Bang model "supports" the doctrine of creation (1983, 17-20).
The fact is, there are significant contradictions between the big bang theory and the Bible record.
This Pope continues to demonstrate that he does not believe the Word of God, much like many who are his predecessors. He has blasted Capitalism as the new tyranny, welcomed Islam with open arms, overseen Vatican bishops that declared "homosexuals have gifts and qualities to offer to the Christian community," talked about establishing a united nations of religions and possibly laying the groundwork for a one world religion.
When are the Roman Catholics going to abandon the Pope… and the papacy in general?

Why I Will Not Submit To Medical Martial Law
by Brandon Smith and originally published at Alt-Market.com
[If the government in question was a proven and honorable institution, then I would say pro-Medical Martial Law arguments might have a leg to stand on.]
One of the most dangerous philosophical contentions even amongst liberty movement activists is the conundrum of government force and prevention during times of imminent pandemic. All of us at one time or another have had this debate. If a legitimate viral threat existed and threatened to infect and kill millions of Americans, is it then acceptable for the government to step in, remove civil liberties, enforce quarantines, and stop people from spreading the disease? After all, during a viral event, the decisions of each individual can truly have a positive or negative effect on the rest of society, right? One out of control (or “lone wolf”) citizen/terrorist could reignite a biological firestorm, so, should we not turn to government and forgo certain freedoms in order to achieve the greater good for the greater number?
If the government in question was a proven and honorable institution, then I would say pro-Medical Martial Law arguments might have a leg to stand on. However, this is not the case. In my view, medical martial law is absolutely unacceptable under ANY circumstances, including Ebola, in light of the fact that our current government will be the predominant cause of viral outbreak. That is to say, you DO NOT turn to the government for help when the government is the cause of the problem.
The recent rise of global Ebola is slowly bringing the issue of medical martial law to the forefront of our culture. Charles Krauthammer at The Washington Post recently argued in favor of possible restrictions on individual and Constitutional liberties in the face of a viral pandemic threat.
The CDC now argues that in the case of people who may be potential carriers, or even in the case of people who refuse to undergo screenings, it has the legal authority to dissolve all constitutional protections and essentially imprison (quarantine) an American citizen for as long as they see fit to do so.
The Obama Administration is now using militant terminology in reference to Ebola response, including the formation of “Ebola SWAT Teams” for quick reaction to potential outbreak areas.
In typical socialist fashion, the nurses union ‘National Nurses United’ has called for Barack Obama to use “executive authority” to take control of all Ebola response protocols in hospitals across the country. Yet another perpetuation of the myth that more government power is the solution.
And finally, the Department of Defense has been tasked to create a military controlled “quick-strike team” to deal with Ebola within U.S. borders. This team will be under the command of none other than Northcom, apparently trampling the Posse Comitatus Act and setting the stage for the rationalized use of military personnel against U.S. citizens under the guise of pandemic prevention.
It should be clear to anyone with half a brain that medical martial law is being quietly prepared, and that the threat of such measures is not a paranoid conspiracy, but a very real possibility. It should also be noted that such provisions are not only the products of the Obama Administration. It was George W. Bush who first created laws intersecting with the World Health Organization’s pandemic preparedness planning. These laws include the “overrule of existing legislation or (individual) human rights” in order to quell a viral outbreak, and were originally drafted around the potential of an influenza crisis.
It is this kind of executive overreach that has set precedence for states such as Connecticut to announce a tentative state of emergency with medical martial law restrictions.
I discussed in great detail why Ebola works in favor of establishment elites in my article ‘An Ebola Outbreak Would Be Advantageous For Globalists’.
Understand that bureaucrats will come to you with promises of offering a helping hand, hoping that you are afraid enough to accept, but their intentions will not be compassionate. Rather, their intent will be to assert as much dominance over the public as possible during the chaos, and to erase any conception the people may have had in the past that they have inalienable rights.
But going beyond the hidden motives of tyrants, I think it is important to point out that the Center for Disease Control and the federal government in general has already lost all credibility in dealing with Ebola, and therefore, it has lost any authority it may have had in administrating a future response.
Ebola has been officially known to the CDC for over thirty years. Why has the CDC refused for three decades to produce proper care guidelines for hospitals? Medical staff in the U.S. didn’t even receive guidelines when the outbreak in Western Africa was obviously progressing out of control.
Why did the CDC leave Thomas Duncan, the very first U.S. Ebola case, in the hands of the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, without proper procedures in place to prevent further infection, and without a CDC team present? The CDC has an annual budget of nearly $7 billion. Where is all of this money going if not to stamp out such threats as Ebola?
The argument presented by the White House, the CDC, and even the World Bank, has been that stopping direct or indirect travel from nations with an Ebola outbreak would be “impractical”, and that such travel bans would somehow “make matters worse”. They have yet to produce a logical explanation as to how this makes sense, but what if we did not need to institute a travel ban? The CDC, with it’s massive budget, could easily establish quarantine measures in infected countries. Anyone wishing to travel outside of these nations would be welcome to do so, as long as they voluntarily participate in quarantine procedures for a set number of days. No quarantine, no plane ticket. Where has the CDC response been in Western Africa?
Why not use minor and measured travel restriction in Africa today, instead of using unprecedented martial law in America tomorrow? It makes no sense, unless, of course, the plan is to allow Ebola to spread…
Why has the White House nominated Ron Klain, a man who knows absolutely NOTHING about Ebola or medical emergency strategies, as the new “Ebola Czar”?
Why has all discussion on Ebola prevention revolved around government measures rather than community measures? Why has all talk centered on what the government will do AFTER an outbreak occurs, rather than on what can be done to prevent an outbreak in the first place?
The reality is that the federal government does not have any treatments for Ebola that are outside of the knowledge and capabilities of the average medically trained citizen. Meaning, the government and the CDC are NOT needed for a community to handle an Ebola outbreak, if that community is given proper guidelines and strategies in advance. Treatment for Ebola, at least in first world nations, consists primarily of regimented transfusions. These transfusions are a mixture of isotonic saline, electrolytes, and plasma, designed to keep the body supported until it’s immune system can build up a proper defense to the virus. Natural and homeopathic methods can also boost immune system functions making the body resistant to the virus before it is ever contracted. The most effective of all treatments appears to be the transfusion of blood from a recovering patient with anti-bodies into a newly sick patient. This is likely the reason for the quick recovery of infected doctors like Kent Brantly.
The CDC would never be able to coherently organize a large scale program of transfusion initiatives, even if it wanted to. Most hospitals around the country have no isolation wards able to handle even a minor Ebola outbreak. The hospitals that do have facilities are limited to less than a dozen beds. According to the medical workers I have spoken with, most hospitals require a minimum of around 50 health professionals to deal with a single Ebola patient. In the event of an outbreak larger than a few people per state, the CDC and local hospitals are simply not equipped to react to the problem. Blood transfusions from recovering donors would be few and far between, unless organized by local citizens working under their own directives.
Ironically, it was the Bush Administration’s own report in 2006 on the possibility of bird flu pandemic that admitted the government is completely unequipped to handle an outbreak of moderate size. The report stated that “all sources of external aid may be compromised during a pandemic,” and that “local communities will have to address the medical and non-medical effects of the pandemic with available resources.” Little has changed in the federal government’s pandemic preparations since the report was written.
This leaves individual communities to either prepare for the worst, or die off while waiting for the government to save them. Self isolation and self treatment are the only practical options.
The greatest danger to American citizens is, in fact, not the Ebola virus, but government reactions to the Ebola virus. Already, several medical outfits around the world are suddenly interested in producing an Ebola vaccination when no one seemed very interested before. This might sound like good news, until you learn the terrible history of modern vaccinations.
Pharmaceutical company Merck was caught red handed faking vaccine efficacy data. Merck’s Gardisil was found to contain DNA fragments of human papillomavirus.
Glaxosmithkline, a major vaccine producer, has been caught repeatedly attempting to bribe doctors and health professionals into promoting their products or outright lying about their effectiveness. Glaxo was caught producing rotavirus vaccinations tainted with a swine virus in 2010. Glaxo has been caught producing vaccines tainted with bacteria and endotoxins.
It is important to point out that Glaxo is also spearheading an Ebola vaccine initiative.
U.S. company Baxter produced a flu vaccination in Austria tainted with both avian flu and swine flu. The mixture just happened to be randomly tested on a group of ferrets by a lab in the Czech Republic. The test animals died. The exposure of this “mix up” was quietly swept under the rug by Baxter and the mainstream media, but reports indicate that if the vaccine had been used on the general population, a terrible pandemic would have erupted.
Beyond the fact that vaccinations have a tendency to cripple our natural immune...............

" 'Treated like cattle': Yazidi women sold, raped, enslaved by ISIS "
By Ivan Watson, CNN
October 30, 2014
Young Yazidi woman says ISIS jihadis kidnapped her and other women, and raped them
Yazidi women treated like cattle, says one adviser to Kurdistan government on gender
ISIS has kidnapped more than 2,500 Yazidi women, according to research by his team
ISIS actually justified its enslavement of Yazidis in its own online magazine
Erbil, Iraq (CNN) -- Jana was a 19-year-old in her final year of high school, with dreams of becoming a doctor. Then, ISIS came to her village last August, and her world collapsed.
She described to me in chilling detail, how the jihadis first demanded that members of her Yazidi religious minority convert to Islam. Then they stripped villagers of their jewelry, money and cellphones. They separated the men from the women.
A United Nations report explained what happened next. ISIS "gathered all the males older than 10 years of age at the local school, took them outside the village by pick-up trucks, and shot them."
Among those believed dead were Jana's father and eldest brother.
A different fate lay in store for the women.
Jana described how girls like herself were separated from older women, then bussed to the city of Mosul.
There they were put in a big three-story house with hundreds of other young women. The men of ISIS came periodically, and chose up to three and four girls at a time to take home with them.
"These women have been treated like cattle," explained Nazand Begikhani, an adviser to the Kurdistan Regional Government on gender issues.
"They have been subjected to physical and sexual violence, including systematic rape and sex slavery. They've been exposed in markets in Mosul and in Raqqa, Syria, carrying price tags."
Perhaps more importantly, Begikhani is also a researcher at the UK-based University of Bristol's Gender and Violence Research Center. According to the field research and testimonials of Begikhani's team, ISIS kidnapped more than 2,500 Yazidi women.
Meanwhile Narin Shiekh Shamo, a Yazidi activist based in Iraqi Kurdistan has compiled the names of at least 4,601 Yazidi women currently missing.
In the first month after the mass abductions, Shamo says she was receiving calls and messages from up to 70 different hostages a day. Now, she can't reach a single hostage.
After more than a decade reporting on conflict in the Middle East, I was still ill-prepared to hear about the scale of this kidnapping and modern day enslavement.
Suddenly, the words of a 19-year-old ISIS imprisoned fighter whom I interviewed last weekend in a Kurdish prison in northern Syria made sense.
The young man, horribly disfigured from bullet wounds to his abdomen and arm received during his year of fighting on the frontlines, described how ISIS attracted fresh recruits with the offer of cash and "wives."
ISIS actually justified its enslavement of Yazidis in its own online magazine.
"One should remember that enslaving the families of the kuffar -- the infidels -- and taking their women as concubines is a firmly established aspect of the Shariah, or Islamic law," the group announced in the ISIS publication "Dabiq."
The Kurdish authorities say they have rescued around 100 Yazidi women, in part through the payment of ransoms to Arab tribesmen who acted as intermediaries.
Thousands of women remain hostage. And with ISIS successfully defending its territory from a loose coalition of Iraqi military, Iraqi Kurdish peshmerga, Syrian Kurdish militants and US-led airstrikes, it doesn't look like a white knight will charge in to rescue these poor women any time soon.
Begikhani said all of the 100 Yazidi women rescued from ISIS appeared to have been systematically raped, likely by more than one man.
The 19-year-old girl I spoke with here in Iraqi Kurdistan was deeply traumatized, and incapable of showing any joy or humor. Her mother and two brothers are still being held hostage by ISIS.
Asked what she would say if she met the 70-year-old Arab man who took her home and ordered her to convert to Islam at gunpoint, she says: "I wouldn't want to tell him anything. I just want to kill him."
Jana says she has given up her dream of becoming a doctor.
For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by Him we cry, “Abba, Father.”
Romans 8:15, NIV
The Spirit Of Sonship
The Spirit of sonship which we have received from God is the Spirit by which we cry, “Abba, Father.” Have you ever cried to God like He is your Daddy? Yes, He is El Shaddai. He is Elohim. But in the new covenant He is Daddy! The Holy Spirit put the Aramaic word “Abba” there, which means “Daddy” or “Papa” in English, and didn’t have it translated because He wants us to know that God is not a distant, impersonal being, but a close and intimate Daddy! That is the Spirit of sonship.
My friend, when you pray, learn to say, “Dear Daddy God…” Forget the formalities and traditions of man. Just call Him “Daddy”, and sense His closeness to you. You can bring all your cares, worries and anxieties to Him, knowing that the all-powerful King of the universe is your Daddy!
At the cross, Jesus cried out, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” (Matthew 27:46). For the first time, He addressed His Father as “God.” He experienced distance—in fact, a cutting-off—from the Father because He was carrying all our sins upon Himself. Why? So that you and I can experience closeness and intimacy with the Father, and cry out “Daddy!” from our hearts.
A child who cries “Daddy!” belongs in his daddy’s embrace. So when we cry out, “Daddy God!” we take our place as His beloved children, and find our strong and loving Daddy rushing in to embrace, protect and deliver us!
EVERYONE might want to read this. Be ready people......THat is all I have to say
To see the recent mainstream media headlines, one who ponders a little deeply might rightly think we are on the precipice of something strange. More Ebola funny business, shootings, a rocket explosion, and the Department of Homeland Security's recent raising of security levels at all federal buildings within the United States.
Just like the months leading up to 9/11, the American public is being assaulted with an onslaught of reports suggesting the possibility of another major terror attack inside the United States. Are we being invited into a terror theater? A little predictive programming perhaps? A couple news pieces should offer some pause, if nothing else.
In this Fox News report about the DHS raising security levels, favored mouthpiece and former New York mayor, Rudolph Giuliani, speaks about expecting attacks. Certainly, his words were meant to unsettle the public, rather than reassure. According to him, we have to assume a major attack is imminent. His words really need no introduction, but deserve some analysis, which can be left up to the readers:
A former intelligence official also likened Tuesday night's press release to "terror theater," though said it is a good thing to keep the public aware of these threats.
To actually read the report, however, the major bent of the message surrounds domestic terrorist threats. Strangely, it's the same reconciliation of foreign terrorism juxtaposed with domestic played out in the series Jericho (2006) - a show about the aftermath of nuclear attacks in the States, where factions within U.S. government set off a nuke false flag, blamed on foreign/domestic combined terrorism.
Again from Fox:
"ISIS is waging a campaign of war over the Internet to incite homegrown violent extremism in the United States," McCaul, R-Texas, said. "We must do everything we can to protect every American abroad and at home." [emphasis added]
This "marriage" or mirage was also explored in Brandon Turbeville's pieces, "FBI Visiting Gun Shops to Investigate "People talking about Big Government'" and "11 Signs of a False Flag."
Additionally, one of those false flag signs is conducting terror drills before or during an actual event. So, it is all too discomforting that last month, Nebraska scheduled simulated nuclear explosion drills. As Webster Tarpley writes in his book 9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made In USA, at least 46 drills were underway in the months leading up to 9/11 and on the morning of the attack.
Like Turbeville, I'm not attempting to predict anything myself or say that it's certain to occur, but simply pointing out that the recent media talking points and imagery could be signaling such a catastrophe to the masses, whether it would occur or not.
In July, Turbeville wrote in "Media Propaganda Foreshadows Massive False Flag Inside The United States:"
The narrative being inserted into news media reports and government statements no longer revolves around terrorists hijacking planes or blowing up specific buildings. This time, the narrative is that there is the very real possibility that terrorists who have traveled to Syria and Iraq in order to overthrow the governments in those countries are now traveling back to the United States and Europe with the intention of launching terror attacks at home.
Of course, ever since 9/11, Americans have been relentlessly bombarded with the prospect of more and greater terrorist attacks taking place at home and abroad, even while the U.S. government openly funds the very terrorists it uses to keep the public frightened into submission.
What was some of the predictive programming he noticed?
•The report “Al-Qaeda Training British And European ‘Jihadists’ In Syria To Set Up Terror Cells At Home,” by Ruth Sherlock, Gaziantep, and Tom Whitehead and published by The Telegraph.
•The article written by Andrew G. Doran for the National Review, published on June 16, 2014 entitled “ISIS In The Homeland,” where Doran argues that not only do ISIS and ISIS-style fighters have American and European passports, but that these terrorists are already back home.
•Recent (and eerily specific) advice from former Vice President Dick Cheney: "I think there will be another attack and the next time I think it’s likely to be far deadlier than the last one...You can just imagine what would happen if somebody could smuggle a nuclear device, put it in a shipping container, and drive it down the beltway outside Washington D.C.” (Again, it's hard not to think back to Jericho, especially if you view Cheney's whole conversation about reconstituting the U.S. government after hypothetical attack.)
•Another Cheney gem: “One of the things I worried about 12 years ago and that I worry about today is that there will be another 9/11 attack and that the next time, it'll be with weapons far deadlier than airline tickets and box cutters.”
•In September, 2013, as the rush to war with Syria was ramping up, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham suggested that, if the U.S. did not use military force against Syria, the Iranians would view America as weak and, eventually, nuclear weapons could end up in the hands of terrorists resulting in the bombing of Charleston Harbor.
•Another Graham quote: “I believe that if we get Syria wrong, within six months, and you can quote me on this, there will be a war between Iran and Israel over their nuclear program. My fear is that it won’t come to America on top of a missile, it’ll come in the belly of a ship in the Charleston or New York harbor.”
Not only is that as eerily specific and similar to Cheney's quotes, but Giuliani has echoed Graham's frustration that we just didn't "get things right" with the handling of propagated security threats stemming from the middle east and then he drives the idea of it being "here at home." And the news anchor chimes in, in reference to Canadian and U.S. events, that "we have no program, no plan, in place to tip off our intelligence, folks, to that kind of behavior."
To this writer, the symbolism underlying NASA's unmanned Antares rocket explosion in the same 24 hours was not lost, but you can make of that what you will.
I also couldn't help notice that "tares" are a type of false wheat that often show up at harvest. Harvest that could also be called "homegrown."
Regardless of actual future events, the idea of a large-scale attack is certainly being pumped out in the media - subconsciously and consciously - with complete abandon and in full bloom.
The media is awash in articles declaring that the U.S.-Israel relationship has hit a new low. And yes, when you have an unnamed Administration official calling the Prime Minister of Israel a "chickensh**t," things have definitely gotten bad.
But what troubles us more than the childish name calling is the persistent policy. In recent months, we have seen this Administration take a number of disturbing actions towards our ally, Israel, including:
• Delaying shipment of critical weapons to Israel in the middle of Israel's summer war with Hamas.
• Denying Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon key meetings with the Vice President and the Secretary of State during his recent visit.
• Implying -- as Secretary of State Kerry recently did -- that Israel is in danger of becoming an apartheid state and that the failure to solve Israel's conflict with the Palestinians is somehow fueling the growth of ISIS.
At a juncture like this, it's more important than ever that we in CUFI speak up in support of our ally Israel and remind our neighbors, friends and elected officials of certain fundamental truths.
It is absolutely true that Israel is exercising enormous caution as it contemplates an attack to stop the existential threat of a nuclear Iran. This caution in the face of such a challenge should not be mocked as if Israel is ducking a schoolyard fight. Israel's concern for the lives of its own citizens and those of Iran should be respected. Last we checked, the Obama Administration was sending signals that it will do little more than capitulate to Iran's main demands in the ongoing nuclear negotiations.
Israel remains the only U.S. ally in the region, and the world, that is on the front lines fighting our shared enemies in Hezbollah, Hamas and al Qaeda for us.
Israel is not boosting ISIS recruitment. The true source of ISIS' appeal is its ugly, genocidal ideology and the absence of clear U.S. leadership in the Middle East.
