  • The Armageddon Code: A Must-Read for All Those Looking for a Fuller Understanding of Christianity

    Like most people, the list of books I have read over the years is in the hundreds. The ones still to be read also in the hundreds. That said, of all the books I’ve read or planned to read, a book about “The End Times” had never made either list. Until now. While never a “Bible thumper,” I have always been a person of deep faith, and as outlined in the past, my personal relationship with Jesus Christ started when I was five years old, when a little plastic Baby Jesus became my sole comforter during a fairly violent eviction...

    CONCERNED scientists have revealed how we can prevent the human race from being wiped out — and it involves either changing our planet’s orbit or uploading ourselves into machines. In around 500 million years, scientists believe that the Sun’s expansion will leave our planet completely uninhabitable, with conditions so unforgiving that the Earth will return to being the scorched, lifeless lump of rock it once was. However, there is still hope for Earth’s future inhabitants, as researchers claim there are extreme measures we may be able to go to in humanity’s hour of need. Columbia University astrophysicists Michael Hahn and...

    Jim Berkland, a former US Geological Survey scientist, who once famously predicted the Loma Prieta quake, said mega quakes usually strike at a new moon or full moon because of the gravitation effect on the Earth…and the next full moon is on FRIDAY. The maverick, now retired, scientist spoke out after eight powerful earthquakes struck across south Asia and the pacific in the past 80 hours, claiming hundreds of lives in Japan and Ecuador. Mr Berkland predicted on October 13, 1989, an earthquake of magnitude 3.5 to 6.0 would strike San Francisco within the next week. Four days later on...

This will likely be a two parter that probably will lead to a second show tomorrow, but we'll see how everything goes. This week as I took a look at some of the stories that I've read and in some cases shared on the Facebook page, I wanted to focus on where all of this ultimately ends when it comes to war and conflicts amongst nations. There will come a time I believe in which we can count on a conflict with a huge...
  • Report on whether Iran was making nuclear bomb won't be clear cut: U.N.

    A U.N. report on whether Iran has in the past carried out work related to nuclear weapons will not reach a definitive conclusion on the subject, the chief of the U.N. nuclear watchdog said on Thursday. The report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is required under a landmark deal between major powers and Iran, which provides for a lifting of sanctions against the Islamic Republic in exchange for restrictions on its nuclear program. A clear verdict that weapons-related work occurred would have made it difficult for the deal to proceed, but diplomats have said for weeks that they...

    Senate Democrats on Thursday used a procedural device to block a vote on a resolution disapproving the Iran nuclear agreement, saving President Obama the discomfiture of having to veto a measure of opposition to a signature foreign policy initiative. “Yes!,” came an exclamation as the number of votes to prevent the disapproval motion from moving forward reached the target of 41 required by Iran deal supporters. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) punched the air with both fists in evident delight at the outcome. The final vote was 58-42, with Republicans—joined by Democratic Sens. Chuck Schumer of New York, Robert Menendez of...

[…] “This is historic. This is grand. This is visionary. This is about peace,” Pelosi said at her briefing. “Some of our members are saying this is the first time since I have been here that I have been able to vote for peace rather than just against war.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell Wednesday blasted the Obama administration for reducing the debate on the Iran nuclear deal to "a partisan contest" that "raises even more serious questions about its durability and merits." "While the president may be able to sustain a veto with the tepid, restricted and partisan support of one third of one House of Congress over Americans' bipartisan opposition, it will require a bipartisan Congress to strengthen our defenses in the Persian Gulf and to stand up to the inevitable Iranian violations of the agreement that will need to be addressed after he has left office,"...

    The Iran deal has potential, both because of public opinion and the way the administration is positioning itself, to hurt Democrats in much the same way that the Iranian hostage crisis did in 1980 and 1981. Should New York Senator Chuck Schumer succeed in killing the deal, he will be saving the Democrats from what appears to be a grave political mistake. President Obama has branded opponents of the deal as either ideological extremists or ignorant. In his speech at American University, he compared the agreement’s opponents with Iranian extremists chanting “death to America.” He pointed out that most of...

    I believe we are seeing in our world right now what can be described as the foreshocks of Armageddon. We are seeing these foreshocks all around us. Jesus said that in the last days, we “will hear of wars and rumors of wars” (Matthew 24:6 NKJV). And it seems today that at every turn, there is a new conflict. ISIS is creating chaos in the Middle East, North Africa and Nigeria, and they only continue to grow. Syria is effectively under siege by ISIS. And in Iraq, about one-third of the country is now reportedly under ISIS control. Meanwhile there...

    Liberals are livid at Sen. Charles Schumer’s (D-N.Y.) decision to oppose the White House’s nuclear deal with Iran, and have threatened to launch a full-scale war as retribution. Activists and former top officials within the Obama administration are openly contemplating whether Schumer’s stance disqualifies him from serving as the next Senate Democratic leader — which he is primed to do — and seeking to temporarily cut off money to Democrats in the upper chamber. It’s unclear whether Schumer’s announcement will have a devastating effect on the White House’s efforts to prevent Democrats from killing the deal when it comes up...

    Countering Republican criticism, Secretary of State John Kerry declared Thursday it is “fantasy plain and simple” to claim that President Barack Obama failed to insist on enough restraints on Iran’s nuclear program before agreeing to lift economic sanctions long in place. “So what’s your plan? … Totally go to war?” he challenged lawmakers who want to torpedo the deal. Republicans were unpersuaded—and said so—at an occasionally contentious Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing that marked the opening of a new phase in the administration’s drive to prevent Congress from undermining the accord. “You guys have been bamboozled,” said Sen. Jim Risch,...

    Iranian sources familiar with the details of a final agreement scheduled to be announced on Monday said sanctions and an arms embargo against Iran will be lifted and restrictions on its nuclear activity will only be “temporary” in a deal that falls “within the redlines” laid out by Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, according to Iran’s state-controlled media. As world powers work to secure a final deal, Iranian sources are indicating that the United States has caved on most major issues, including the timing of sanctions relief, the length of the deal, and arms sales to Tehran. Initially, U.S officials had...

    Illustration Of A Planetoid Crashing Into Earth In 2013, a 60-foot-wide meteor exploded over Russia, and no one saw it coming. The Chelyabinsk impactor was relatively small by interplanetary standards, but the blast injured about 1,500 people and damaged 7,000 buildings. If a larger rock were headed for Earth, how would we defend ourselves? The short answer is, scientists aren’t really sure, but one solution sounds a lot like the plot from a 1998 Michael Bay movie: just nuke ‘em. In hopes of averting a space rock calamity, The New York Times reports that NASA has just sealed a deal...

    On Thursday, April 23, 2015, the Jewish state celebrated its 67th birthday – corresponding to the 5th of Iyar on the Hebrew calendar. What makes this unique in the annals of history is that Jews in the 20th century reestablished Jewish sovereignty in the Land of Israel after 2082 years of the land having been occupied and the Jewish people having been oppressed, exiled, persecuted – including, most notably, the Spanish Inquisition, pogroms, and the Holocaust. The last Jewish sovereign entity was the Hashmonean dynasty, which lasted 47 years, from 110BCE to 63BCE. The Romans colonized and ruled the land...

Unfortunately, the truth is that Russia and China both consider the United States to be their number one geopolitical threat, and both nations have been systematically strengthening and updating their strategic forces.

There was a distinct change in tone from the White House this week on what sequestration would mean.

Without intervention by Europe, which could use its political and economic weight, the talks likely won’t amount to much, Chomsky told reporters and guests at the Geneva Press Club, in a visit sponsored by the Swiss foreign ministry. But if Europe broke from American policies supporting Israel, he said, that could swing momentum toward a breakthrough. …

Yet the slogans that now ring out on the streets of Iraq each Friday are the voice of a community not best known for championing civil rights - be it for themselves or anyone else.

    <p>‘The worst-case scenario for us,” a leading anti-budget-cuts lobbyist told the Washington Post, “is the sequester hits and nothing bad really happens.”</p> <p>Think about that. Worst case? That a government drowning in debt should cut back by 2.2 percent — and the country survives. That a government now borrowing 35 cents of every dollar it spends reduces that borrowing by 2 cents “and nothing bad really happens.” Oh, the humanity!</p>

    Former Iraqi Parliamentarian Mithal al Alusi contacted me by phone last week to report that, according to “good sources,” U.S. President Barack Obama is expected to meet soon with Iranian Prime Minister Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Alusi, who served two terms in Iraq’s Parliament and has promoted normalized relations between Iraq and Israel, has frequently been prescient in alerting the West about developments in Iraq. Last April, he told this reporter that Iraqi politicians were participating in large scale money-laundering and smuggling to help the Iranian regime skirt U.S.-led sanctions, a report which was confirmed several months later by The New York...

A report in Newsweek that US military interrogators at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, had desecrated the Koran - subsequently retracted - initially set off...

    MEGIDDO, Israel -- The Book of Revelation says the biblical fortress of Armageddon will be the site of an apocalyptic battle between good and evil at the end of time. Scientists believe it could also be the place where time begins -- at least for archaeology. In a groundbreaking new project, scholars are using the rich archaeological remains that soar more than 50 feet above the Jezreel Valley in northern Israel to synchronize the clocks of the ancient world and create the first definitive calendar of human history. The word "Armageddon" comes from the Hebrew Har Megiddo, which means mountain...

    There is much discussion on the Web, radio talk shows, cable pundit programs and other disreputable sources about the name of Barack Obama, who has been soliciting votes hereabouts.Some folks are uneasy because his middle name is Hussein, the name of Muhammad's grandson, spiritual granddaddy of Shiite Muslims. Whether that is worrisome depends on what's in a name, as Ms. Juliet Capulet, a well-known Italian girl, liked to point out. In the interest of full disclosure, I should mention that my great-grandfather was Ishmael Smart, named for the Biblical chap the Arabs consider to be their founding father, so maybe...

    In his regular appearance on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show on Thursday, Mark Steyn, author of “After America: Get Ready for Armageddon,” noted what he said were absurdities in President Barack Obama’s address to the United Nations. Obama carved out new territory for a U.S. president during that speech when he said, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” “He also said, I believe, that the future belongs to those who empower women,” Steyn said of Obama, ”and the power belongs to those who invest in education.” “It doesn’t quite add up to me, all...
