[WND EXCLUSIVE] America’s ticket for divine judgment may have already been signed and sent off to the printer, but there’s still time for God to cancel the order, according to a leading Bible teacher and author.
That time could be running short, though, says Jonathan Cahn, a messianic rabbi and author of the New York Times-best seller “The Harbinger” and the newly released sequel “The Mystery of the Shemitah.”mystery_shemitah
In the absence of repentance and mass revival, Cahn sees a continuation of catastrophic “shakings” that will gradually break America down, knocking it off its perch as world leader. –Read More…
[Infowars.com] The Centers for Disease Control is advising funeral homes in the United States on how to handle the remains of Ebola victims, although officials are keen to stress that the development is not a cause for alarm.
A three page list of recommendations instructs funeral workers to wear protective gear while handling Ebola victims, as well as warning them not to carry out autopsies or to embalm corpses.
“If the outbreak of the potentially deadly virus is in West Africa, why are funeral homes in America being given guidelines?” asks WFSB.com.
[American Spectator] Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and bitch about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington. If you’re in Mississippi, you can stay mad at Thad and allow Travis “no repeal” Childers to win. That’ll show those RINOs!
It isn’t necessary to speculate about the results of such petulance. We are already suffering the consequences of a similar tantrum. As R. Emmett Tyrrell pointed out last week, about 4 million conservatives declined to participate in the 2012 presidential election: “The wise psephologists tell us that these conservatives did not like Romney. He was too bland for the Tea Partiers.… Frankly, I do not know why they stayed home given the choice between a community organizer and a former governor.” Regardless of the rationale, those abstainers are responsible for the domestic corruption and foreign policy disasters of the last two years. –Read More…
[TheBlaze.com] The man who scaled the White House fence this month actually ran through the building into the East Room, much farther than the Secret Service initially disclosed.
The intruder overpowered a Secret Service officer posted near the door before penetrating deep into the mansion’s main floor, the Washington Post reported:
An alarm box near the front entrance of the White House designed to alert guards to an intruder had been muted at what officers believed was a request of the usher’s office, said a Secret Service official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
[FoxNews.com] Official: White House aware of ISIS threat for over a year
One wouldn’t be surprised if President Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, woke up Monday morning checking for tire tracks after his boss effectively threw him under the bus for having “underestimated” the threat posed by the Islamic State militant group.
But Obama’s remarks in a “60 Minutes” interview drew immediate objections from lawmakers and the intelligence community.
In the interview, Obama was asked how the Islamic State was able to gain so much territory. “Our head of the intelligence community Jim Clapper has acknowledged that I think they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria,” the president said. –Read More…
[HumanEvents.com] As American government transforms itself into a concierge service for illegal aliens – the imported electorate liberals have been daydreaming about for decades is about to be delivered at last! – the importance of keeping the truth from actual citizens has grown. Remember, you weren’t supposed to know about Obama’s human wave assault this year. The photos of children stacked up like cargo in warehouses were leaked, provoking a crisis that sent immigration rocketing from an issue that didn’t crack the Top 10 lists of voters to their Number One concern. You also weren’t supposed to know about the buses and planes distributing thousands of illegal aliens to communities across the country, making it effectively impossible to deport them.
“Don’t worry about all that,” the American people were told, when the use of public money and resources to ferry illegals hither and yon was discovered. “They’ve all been served notice that they must appear at immigration hearings.” President Obama went so far as claiming that he would purchase billboards across Central America, warning people not to load their children onto the coyote network headed northward, because they would be swiftly returned home, making the money spent on illegally boosting them across the border – and the hideous risk to the children’s safety – all for nothing.
Obama’s political rhetoric was an absolute lie, a complete inversion of reality, and while he prattled on about dastardly smugglers misinforming the poor chumps south of the border to pump up business, the dastardly smugglers were the ones telling the truth. Get across the border and you’re in. The American government has little interest in monitoring you, much less deporting you. –Read More…
[National Journal] The attorney general has been held in contempt of Congress and battled Republicans on multiple fronts.
Attorney General Eric Holder’s resignation has caught many on Capitol Hill by surprise, punctuating a stormy tenure of mutual disdain between him and congressional critics who said Thursday they were happy to see him go.
Holder, the only sitting presidential Cabinet member ever to be held in contempt of Congress, had already made it clear in recent months that he was nearing the end of patience with Congress. He told The New Yorker that he would leave office by the end of 2014. And he expressed clear anger in April in addressing the National Action Network, a group founded by the Rev. Al Sharpton, the day after a tense appearance before the House Judiciary Committee.
[Newsmax.com] “The Rush Limbaugh Show” on Wednesday accused a “small number of hardcore political activists” and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee of being behind a two-year-old Stop Rush protest that amounts to “blackmail” of small business people who advertise with the high-profile conservative talk-show host.In a release issued on Businesswire.com, Limbaugh’s show fired back at the smear campaign against him: “The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s newest email spam, asking their recipients to sign a petition calling for sponsors to end their relationship with The Rush Limbaugh Show, is based on the two-year old Stop Rush political protest as its inspiration. After an investigation, The Rush Limbaugh Show has discovered a far darker story to Stop Rush, and is today releasing the hidden story of the people and motives behind the Stop Rush conspiracy.”
Limbaugh show spokesman Brian Glicklich said in a post on the show’s website that “a small number of politically motivated out-of-state activists are distributing target lists indiscriminately, and annoying small businesses until they give up the advertising deals that help them grow, or risk being unable to conduct business at all.”
“It’s not even activism … it’s blackmail,” he said. –Read More…
[FOXBusiness] Wall Street slid deep into the red Thursday, led by the technology sector, as traders reacted to new economic reports.
As of 11:45 a.m. ET, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 210 points, or 1.2%, to 1700, the S&P 500 dropped 24.7 points, or 1.2%, to 1974, and the Nasdaq Composite rose 74.5 points, or 1.6%, to 4480.

[Townhall.com] Thirty four years ago today, the communist regime in China enacted its “One-Child Policy,” one of the most disastrous and immoral social policies ever imagined in human history. It was the communist regime’s answer to curb the growth of the world’s largest population.
The One-Child Policy banned most Chinese couples from having more than one child. When couples conceived a second child, the Chinese government forced them to eliminate him or her, by any means necessary. However, because of cultural norms that place a premium on boys, the policy’s victims also included first-conceived children simply because they happened to be girls. In addition, Chinese women who gave birth to baby girls were also victims of this policy because many ended up being shunned by their husbands, families and society.
For over three decades, China’s One-Child Policy has condemned approximately 37 million Chinese girls – who the policy helped deem unwanted or “surplus” – to abortion, infanticide, abandonment and human trafficking. In recent years, the Chinese government has relaxed this disastrous policy and ironically, China now faces demographic decline in the coming decades, in part due to the One-Child Policy. However, innocent Chinese parents are still forced to endure abortions and sterilizations in the parts of the country that are still subject to it. –Read More…
[HumanEvents.com] Only 28 percent of swing-voting independents support President Barack Obama’s immigration policies, while 59 percent oppose those policies, according to a new CBS poll, which also shows that GOP voters think…
Everyone is on tenterhooks wondering what the Republicans’ national strategy for the November elections will be. Shouldn’t they be thinking of that soon? The GOP desperately needs a “wave” election to rack up Senate seats this year, because the next two election cycles are not favorable for Republicans.
Let’s see, what would make a good national issue?
Democrats are far savvier than Republicans when it comes to winning elections, and I note that Obama has decided to put off his “executive amnesty” until after the elections. Does that ping any neurons in your tired “Diversity Is a Strength” synapses, Republicans? –Read More…
In Speech on Peace, Obama Escalates War Tensions With Russia War is peace, according to Obama ideology
[Infowars.com] In Speech on Peace, Obama Escalates War Tensions With Russia
In his United Nations speech today, President Obama claimed he wanted peace but then blamed Russia for encouraging the deaths of thousands in Ukraine, escalating current tensions between the U.S. and Russia which could lead to war.
The president evoked memories of both world wars when he accused Russia of trampling a neighboring country “in pursuit of territorial ambition.”
“Russia poured arms into Eastern Ukraine, fueling violent separatists and a conflict that has killed thousands,” Obama asserted. “When a civilian airliner was shot down from areas that these proxies controlled, they refused to allow access to the crash for days.” –Read More…
[LATimes.com] Southeast of this city, at a place called Hill of the Flowers, Kurdish forces gaze toward a concrete bridge bedecked with fluttering black flags. The guns of a few Soviet-era tanks peer from a nearby ditch at this makeshift frontier not found on any map.
A steady stream of traffic flows in both directions, but the midday calm is deceptive: This spot marks the dividing line between Kurdish-controlled territory and lands under the dominion of Islamic State, the extremist faction that holds sway in vast stretches of northern Iraq and neighboring Syria.
“We are ready for them,” said Maj. Nasser Jaff, commander of Kurdish forces known as peshmerga, standing less than a mile from his adversary’s trademark black banners. “We will not retreat.”
[ABCNews.com] The Pentagon justified the strikes, saying that they targeted Khorasan, a part of al Qaeda that US military forces reported were in the process of plotting an attack against Western targets.
“We believe they were nearing the execution phase in either europe or the homeland,” Lt. Gen. William Mayville said at a briefing this morning.
He added, “Strikes like this in the future can we expected.”
The U.S. was joined by a coalition of Arab nations, including Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Bahrain, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, the U.S. military’s Central Command said early today. –Read More…
[TheBlaze.com] The U.S. military on Monday began striking Islamic State targets in Syria using a “mix of fighters, bombers and Tomahawk missiles,” Rear Admiral John Kirby said on Twitter.
“Given that these operations are ongoing, we are not in a position to provide additional details at this time,” Kirby added in a statement. “The decision to conduct theses strikes was made earlier today by the U.S. Central Command commander under authorization granted him by the commander in chief. We will provide more details later as operationally appropriate.”
According to multiple reports, the U.S. was joined by some Arab countries in the mission to strike hard targets.
[Newsbusters.org] Starting Friday night, CBS began previewing an exclusive “60 Minutes” interview with Leon Panetta, which aired Sunday night, where the former Secretary of Defense said he had advised President Obama to arm the Syrian rebels as early as 2012.
Despite Panetta’s criticism of President Obama’s strategy to combat ISIS, ABC and NBC have ignored the story altogether since the preview for the interview first aired on Friday’s CBS Evening News w/ Scott Pelley.
During an interview with CBS’s Scott Pelley, Panetta argued that in order to defeat ISIS “my view was to have leverage to do that, we would have to provide the weapons and the training in order for them to really be willing to work with us in that effort.” –Read More…
[FloppingAces.net] There appear to be two strains of protesters who attended the People’s March. Some cling desperately to the ideals of Marx and who repeat rhetoric and slogans which have largely remained unchanged since the Rutherford B. Hayes administration. These folks ironically consider themselves “progressives.” The other strain of protester who spoke with Foster seemed lost, misplaced, left behind in a world which no longer made much sense.
It is a condition as old as time; the aimless in search of personal meaning complement the ranks of a movement which promises personal purpose. The revolution is over, but the tragically committed revolutionaries persist.
What Foster uncovered in New York City was what so many on the right have known for years, but the public rarely sees. The modern climate alarmism movement has been hijacked by the remnants of those who still adhere to the defunct tenets of revolutionary Marxism. It is no wonder, then, that so few climate change devotees in government and the media go out of their way to make sure you never hear from their grassroots supporters. — HotAir –Read More…
[FoxNews.com] COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Two F-22 fighter jets intercepted six Russian military airplanes that neared the western coast of Alaska, military officials said Friday.
Lt. Col. Michael Jazdyk, a spokesman for the North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD, said the U.S. jets intercepted the planes about 55 nautical miles from the Alaskan coast at about 7 p.m. Pacific time Wednesday.
The Russian planes were identified as two IL-78 refueling tankers, two Mig-31 fighter jets and two Bear long-range bombers. They looped south and returned to their base in Russia after the U.S. jets were scrambled. –Read More…
[PJMedia.com] Demonstrating yet again that we do not have an effective opposition party in the United States right now, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives voted Wednesday in favor of Barack Obama’s plan to arm and train “vetted” members of the Free Syrian Army. As expected, the Senate went along on Thursday. The Hill noted about the House vote that “vocal opposition” came from “both war-weary liberals and defense hawks who feel the Syria plan should include more robust steps.” No one, however, seems to have mentioned the main reason why this is a bad idea: the Free Syrian Army is on the wrong side.
Obama made big promises last Sunday on Meet the Press: “What I want people to understand is that over the course of months,” he asserted, “we are going to be able to not just blunt the momentum” of the Islamic State. “We are going to systematically degrade their capabilities; we’re going to shrink the territory that they control; and, ultimately, we’re going to defeat them.” He was using the term “we” loosely: “This is not going to be an announcement about U.S. ground troops. This is not the equivalent of the Iraq war.” But if American troops were not going to perform this herculean task, then who would do it?
“In the interview on Sunday,” said the New York Times, “Mr. Obama said he envisioned the Free Syrian Army’s providing the ground presence needed to confront ISIS in Syria.” –Read More…
[Breitbart.com] First the good news. Thanks to last night’s “No” vote in the Scottish referendum Britain has been spared the following: a run on the pound; the hasty exodus of Scotland’s finance industry; the premature death of UKIP; the gloating of Alex Salmond; a Red-Wedding-style outbreak of backstabbing and bloodletting among Tories and Labour alike; a collapse in the markets; at least two years of procedural sclerosis in the British and Scottish parliaments; the entirely unnecessary and utterly ill-considered rupture of a the greatest Union between nations the world has ever known; waking up this morning to find ourselves no longer in bed with cherished (if fractious) friends, allies, partners and comrades alongside whom we’ve fought, loved and prospered for over 300 years.
Now the bad: it’s all over anyway.
What Alex Salmond and his Scottish National Party (SNP) insurgency achieved in Scotland last night is equivalent to what the Viet Cong and NVA achieved during the 1968 Tet Offensive in Vietnam. Yes they may have lost the battle. But it was their stepping stone towards ultimately winning the war. –Read More…
[Newsmax.com] For the first time since President Barack Obama took office, more Americans disapprove than approve his handling of terror threats, The New York Times reported Thursday, citing a new poll.
The slide in the president’s approval ratings on terrorism comes as the White House ramps up its fight against the Islamic State group that recently beheaded three Westerners, including two US journalists.
The New York Times-CBS poll found that 50 percent hold a negative view of how Obama is generally dealing with terrorism , while only 41 percent approve.
The poll also found that 55 percent do not believe Obama has a clear plan for dealing with the IS militants and 57 percent say he is not being tough enough on the group. –Read More…
[Newsbusters.org] Meanwhile, Fox News Channel’s flagship evening news show, Special Report with Bret Baier, offered a full segment on Wednesday from FNC’s chief congressional correspondent Mike Emanuel.
In his nearly three-minute-long report, Emanuel told of how the main focus of the first hearing was examining “the latest State Department Accountability Review Board recommendations after Benghazi and implementation.”
While Wednesday’s proceedings were described as relatively calm, Emanuel predicted that:
There are signs future hearings may feature more fireworks, when the panel looks into the explosive allegations made by former State Department official Robert Maxwell: that aides to then-Secretary Clinton scrubbed Benghazi documents that made top officials look bad. –Read More…
[FoxNews.com] A group of Al Qaeda fighters in Syria is emerging as a rival terror threat to the Islamic State.
The network, known as the Khorasan Group, was acknowledged and named publicly for the first time on Thursday by Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. He confirmed the group is operating in the region and said they may pose as great a threat to the U.S. as the Islamic State.
“There is potentially yet another threat to the homeland, yes,” Clapper said at an intelligence conference in Washington. –Read More…
[Townhall.com] National – Let’s start with the latest New York Times/CBS News poll, which speaks to the national ‘fundamentals’ of the 2014 cycle. The environment remains treacherous for Democrats:
– Republicans hold a six-point lead on the Congressional ballot among likely voters, winning independents by nine points and holding a double-digit enthusiasm advantage. Those are all very significant numbers. The GOP holds substantial voter preference edges on the economy (+11), terrorism (+21) and foreign policy (+12), while pulling even with Democrats on immigration and largely erasing Democrats’ wide, decades-long lead on healthcare.- Obama’s overall approval rating is sagging at 40 percent, underwater by double-digits. He’s fallen to new lows in this poll on his handling of terrorism (41 percent approval) — formerly a bright spot amidst otherwise ugly numbers — and foreign policy (34 percent).
– Nearly six in ten Americans say Obama’s posture toward ISIS is “not tough enough, with 31 percent saying he’s handling things “about right.” Some respondents said he’s being “too tough” on ISIS: Two percent, which is within the poll’s margin of error.
– “This poll finds no improvement in overall views of the health care law.” –Read More…
[MRC.org] NBC, ABC, and CBS completely ignored the latest setback for ObamaCare after news broke Monday that around 115,000 people were expected to lose health insurance coverage at the end of September due to their failure to verify their legal status as United States citizens.
Not only did CBS skip any mention of the bad news for President Obama’s signature legislation, but on Tuesday’s CBS This Morning, co-host Norah O’Donnell actually touted a good news story about the law in the New York Times: “Federal researchers say the number of uninsured Americans dropped by about 4 million to 41 million during the first quarter of this year. It’s the first time the government has counted uninsured Americans since President Obama’s Affordable Care Act kicked in last January.”
Meanwhile, Tuesday’s Washington Post did cover the ObamaCare failure, but buried it on page B-2. –Read More…
[FoxNews.com] A week after President Obama vowed not to get “dragged into another ground war in Iraq,” his top military leader opened the door to just that.
Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey addressed the possibility of U.S. ground forces getting involved in the fight against the Islamic State during blunt testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday. He said he would consider recommending that option if the international coalition being formed proves ineffective.
“My view at this point is that this coalition is the appropriate way forward,” Dempsey said. “I believe that will prove true, but if it fails to be true and if there are threats to the United States, then I of course would go back to the president and make a recommendation that may include the use of U.S. military ground forces.”
The comment is a departure from what Obama vowed in his address to the nation a week ago, and from what the president’s top spokesman said just one day before Dempsey’s testimony. And it marks the latest mixed message to emerge from the administration on the fight against ISIS, which for weeks U.S. military advisers have described in more urgent and dire terms than others in the administration. –Read More…
[Breitbart.com] In an interview with Breitbart Texas, Staysi Barth, organizer of “Shut Down All Ports of Entry”, said militia groups are not welcome at the national event planned for this weekend across the southern border of the United States. “Only peaceful protesters are coming,” Barth said.
After fighting with the problem of the open border for years and the negative impact she claimed illegal immigration is having on her home state of California, it was Mexico’s imprisonment of Marine Corps Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi that moved her to take this step of shutting down the international bridges. “Tahmooressi served our country and our leaders are just leaving him behind,” she said. “By blocking these bridges we can cause economic disruption that can force the government to take action.”
Her organization’s website boldly puts forward a travel advisory: “Please be aware that traveling across the US/Mexico border will be impeded, beginning on September 20, 2014, with no designated end date.” –Read More…
