Corrupting Christian Liturgy With The Fantabulosa Fairy
What happens when gay slang becomes the dominant liturgy of a church service?
Westcott House, an Anglican college of theology in Cambridge England, recently came under fire for allowing gay slang or Polari to be used in a liturgical service.
Forced to apologize after the outcry, the college was conducting a "liturgical experiment" to honor LGTB history month by "queering the liturgy of evening prayer, locating the queer within the compass of faith, and recovering for the Christian tradition a sense of its own intrinsically subversive jouissance," according to a printed pamphlet.
It was only two months ago that another Anglican church was forced to apologize for allowing a Muslim woman to recite verses from the Qur'an that denied the divinity of Christ during a Christmas service.
In this most recent service, the Holy Spirit was referred to as the "fantabulosa fairy" and God the Father became just "the Duchess" in this queer performance.

Muslim Refugees Truly Turning To Christ Or A Means To An End?
A record numbers of refugee applications are coming from recent converts to Christianity.
Conversions from Islam to Christianity are considered apostasy and in many Muslim countries, including Syria, are punishable by death.
In Iran, the death penalty is not officially prescribed but such punishment is still carried out for those who turn away from Islam.
So, it is no surprise that record numbers of refugee applications are coming from recent converts to Christianity.
Hoping to bolster their asylum applications in any way they can, the extreme risks associated with being Christian in countries such as Syria or Yemen can make a valid case for the need to flee.
This, however, raises the question whether the conversions are authentic or merely a ploy to bring their families out of desperate situations of poverty, violence and chaos.

In the first three months of 2016, the church in Austria recorded as many as 300 applicants for adult baptism and it was estimated that 70% of those were from refugees.
Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral now holds a weekly worship service in Farsi that ministers to a congregation of between 100 and 140 immigrants from Iran and Afghanistan.
Across Europe, mass baptisms are now being conducted but reliable, cross-border and multi-denominational data is not easy to collect, so the extent of the movement is not fully understood.

Americans Divided Over Establishment Of Palestinian State
Democrats and Republicans, old and young show sharp divide over Palestinian State
Although an increasing number of Americans oppose the establishment of a Palestinian state, a new Gallup poll shows the U.S. public is divided over that issue.

Currently, 45 percent of Americans say they support the creation of an independent Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza, and 42 percent are opposed to it, the latter figure representing a 5-percent increase from last year.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/salsubannerfeb122017.jpg
According to the survey, a large portion of the American public supports and views Israel favorably.
Of the Americans polled, 71 percent said they support Israel and 27 percent expressed an opposing view.
This was the fourth consecutive year in which support for Israel in the Gallup poll remained above the 70-percent mark.
The low point in American public support for Israelat 49 percentcame in the 1989 Gallup survey. The high point came just two years later, in 1991, when support reached 79 percent.
In the realm of political affiliation, Republicans expressed 81 percent support for Israel in the new poll, while 61 percent of Democrats said they support the Jewish state.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/DTF_Course.jpg
Support for establishing a Palestinian state is also divided along party lines61 percent of Democrats, 50 percent of independents and 25 percent of Republicans expressed support for the idea.
Additionally, younger Americans support Israel less than older Americansthe poll saw 63-percent support among respondents ages 18-29, and 77 percent among those 65 and older.

Google's Artificial Intelligence Getting "Greedy," And "Aggressive"
Will artificial intelligence get more aggressive and selfish the more intelligent it becomes?
A new report out of Google's DeepMind AI division suggests this is possible based on the outcome of millions of video game sessions it monitored.
The results of the two games indicate that as artificial intelligence becomes more complex, it is more likely to take extreme measures to ensure victory, including sabotage and greed.
The first game, Gathering, is a simple one that involves gathering digital fruit. Two DeepMind AI agents were pitted against each other after being trained in the ways of deep reinforcement learning.
After 40 million turns, the researchers began to notice something curious.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/trumparticlebanner.jpg
Everything was OK as long as there were enough apples, but when scarcity set in, the agents used their laser beams to knock each other out and seize all the apples.
The aggression, they determined, was the result of higher levels of complexity in the AI agents themselves. When they tested the game on less intelligent AI agents, they found that the laser beams were left unused and equal amounts of apples were gathered.
The simpler AIs seemed to naturally gravitate toward peaceful coexistence.
Researchers believe the more advanced AI agents learn from their environment and figure out how to use available resources to manipulate their situation -- and they do it aggressively if they need to.
"This model ... shows that some aspects of human-like behaviour emerge as a product of the environment and learning," a DeepMind team member, Joel Z Leibo, told Wired.

China Practices For War With US - Tests Preemptive Missile Strike Against US
Chinese military doctrine is well known for placing an emphasis on surprise and preemptive strikes.
The increasing tension between the United States and China has been no secret in recent years, but now satellite evidence appears to indicate that China is preparing for a crippling, preemptive missile strike in the Pacific.
The evidence gleaned from Chinese rocket battery training grounds is easy to miss at first, until the pattern emerges from the targets.
Across numerous training grounds, the rocket targets are clearly designed to imitate the shape and dimensions of United States military targets.

Turkey - A Prophetic Piece Aligned
Secular Turkey is no more. In it's place stands a nation of the verge of Islamic fundamentalism under a new sultan and a hatred of Israel
"And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: 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: Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet: Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee" ( Ezekiel 38:3-6).
In the late 1980s, and again in the late 1990s I served two, two-year tours of duty in Izmir, Turkey and Ankara, Turkey, respectively. I loved living in the Republic of Turkey. It was a unique anomaly in the world; a truly secular nation with a 95 percent Muslim population.
However, the nation I once knew...is no more, for since those times Turkey has dramatically changed to align itself into its prophetic end-time position.

Anti-Israel Divestment Campaigns Kick Off On Campuses Across The US
Student groups across the US are renewing their efforts to pass anti-Israel divestment resolutions and prepare for Israeli Apartheid Week.
Following a defeat two years ago, a coalition of student groups at Ohio State University (OSU) -- under the auspices of "OSU Divest: Buckeyes for Human Rights" -- is seeking to put the issue to a vote in the Undergraduate Student Government (USG) in the spring.

The OSU Divest measure calls on the student government to "cease and/or prohibit any investments in G4S, Caterpillar, CoreCivic, The GEO Group and Hewlett Packard Enterprise until they are no longer engaged in the violation of human rights of Palestinians and other practices deemed unethical by the Buckeye community."
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/salsubannerfeb122017.jpg
The group is currently attempting to gather the 1,895 signatures needed from the student body to secure the measure on the USG ballot, the campus newspaper The Lantern reported.
At the University of South Florida (USF) in Tampa, groups such as the campus chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), are pushing to place an anti-Israel bill on the Student Government (SG) ballot next month. The measure demands that the USF Foundation divest from "companies complicit in human rights violations in Palestine and Yemen."
According to campus newspaper The Oracle, a similar divestment measure that only singled out Israel for condemnation was shot down last spring by the SG Supreme Court after it was deemed unconstitutional.

Hindu Radicals Battle Christian Compassion & Conversion
With media focus on Islamic extremists, people forget that Hindu nationalists are also engaged in a large-scale campaign to persecute Christians.
India is the world's largest democracy and also the most populous Hindu nation. With the media focus given to the numerous atrocities of Islamic extremists, most people forget that Hindu nationalists and radicals are also engaged in a large-scale campaign to persecute Christians across India.
The violence that flared up in 2008 has continued across the country but is now also being carried out through a series of discriminatory laws aimed at subjugating or dismantling Christian populations.
In 2008 the state of Orissa saw a massive riot by Hindu fanatics. Attacking villagers in their homes and in the street, the Hindu bands didn't stop until they had hacked to death 500 innocent Christians in the worst wave of violence in recent memory.

Trump And The Third Temple
Jewish leaders, including the re-convened Sanhedrin, are looking for President Trump to play a role in rebuilding the Jewish Temple
The Jewish Temple Mount movement are excited over the recent election of Donald Trump. They know very well that rebuilding the Jewish temple in today's world would be a dangerous and politically incorrect task.

In their view, if there is any modern political leader with the guts and determination to stand behind such a project, it could be President Trump.

Biblically, many Christians affirm that the Jewish temple will be rebuilt at some point in the End Times.

Could President Trump's strong pro-Israel stand be the game changer which could help lay the groundwork? What role would President Putin play in the mix?

The Cyrus Mandate

A number of Christian leaders have been comparing Trump to the Biblical King Cyrus. They point out that King Cyrus was a leader called and appointed by God.

Despite the fact that this Persian King did not know the God of Israel, God appointed him by name with the mandate to fulfil God's divine purposes concerning the nation of Israel.

image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/salsubannerfeb122017.jpg

President Trump, like King Cyrus, appears an unlikely champion for God's purposes. Despite the controversies swirling around him, Trump has though already taken action to re-align America with important Biblical values (such as pro-life) as well as making an unusually firm stand alongside the nation of Israel.

While several Christian bible teachers have pointed out similarities with Cyrus, few have raised the point that a primary part of Cyrus' divine calling was to order the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem (Isaiah 44:28, Ezra 1:2).

If President Trump really has a similar calling to King Cyrus, could it be that God would use this real estate developer turned President to facilitate the greatest property development of modern time - the rebuilding of the Temple?

A Letter from the Sanhedrin

Key figures in Israel's Temple Mount movement certainly are optimistic that Trump's victory could be the catalyst needed to bring their dream to reality.

Within days of the election victory, long time Temple Mount advocate and now prominent member of the Israeli Knesset Rabbi Yehudah Glick, issued a public call inviting Trump to visit the Temple Mount.

This call was followed days later by an open letter from the re-convened Jewish Sanhedrin. The open letter addressed BOTH Russian President Putin and the new US President Trump - asking them both to fulfill the Cyrus mandate of enabling the rebuilding of the Temple.

Rabbi Hillel Weiss, who serves as spokesman for the Sanhedrin, explained that Donald Trump's rise to power had 'made the eternal Jewish dream a very real possibility'.

Trump's strong stand in support of the Jewish claim to Jerusalem and the West Bank (Biblically known as Judea and Samaria) has led to the Sanhedrin to the belief that he could also support full Israeli rights to the Temple Mount.

Compared to President Trump, Russian President Vladimir Putin might seem like an even more unlikely Cyrus. Many would instead view him as a potential 'Gog' - one of Israel's great End Time enemies.

The Sanhedrin however are basing their letter to Putin on unverified positive reports concerning Putin's attitude to the Temple Mount. Visiting the Western Wall in 2012, Putin allegedly disclosed that he was personally praying for the rebuilding of the Temple.

On this basis, the Sanhedrin decided to write to both Putin and Trump - inviting them both to fulfil the Cyrus mandate.

The optimism of the Sanhedrin is palpable. Rabbi Weiss explains: "We are poised to rebuild the Temple.

The political conditions today, in which the two most important national leaders in the world support the Jewish right to Jerusalem as their spiritual inheritance, is historically unprecedented".

Cyrus or the Anti-Christ

While the Sanhedrin is looking for a Cyrus type figure to arise to help support the building of the Third Temple, many Christians tend to link the rebuilding of the Temple not with a Cyrus but rather with the anti-Christ himself.

The Scriptures appear clear that the coming anti-Christ will defile the temple, but we shouldn't necessarily equate foreign leaders who facilitate the rebuilding with the coming anti-Christ.

In his day, King Cyrus helped build a temple in Jerusalem at divine instruction, which was later defiled by Antiochus and then frequented by Jesus the Messiah.

Could it be that God will likewise in the End Times raise up a new Cyrus figure that will help facilitate the rebuilding of the temple - which will later be defiled before the Messiah finally returns to take His rightful place in the Temple?

Trump's got the numbers

Jewish leaders have pointed out that the gematria (numerical value) of Donald Trump's name equals that of the phrase 'Meshiach Ben David' (Messiah, Son of David). These same rabbis are quick to point out that they do not believe that Trump is the Messiah (just as well!).
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/TFP_freedvd.jpg


They view the gematria of Trump's name as an indication of him playing a role in the 'redemptive process' - a role in preparing the conditions for the Messiah's arrival. What could prepare the way for the Messiah more than the rebuilding of the Temple?

It is interesting in this context to also consider Michael Snyder's calculations that Trump was born 700 days before Israel became a nation, won the election on Prime Minister Netanyahu's 7th year, 7th month and 7th day in office, and served his first full day in the White House at the age of 70 years, 7 months and 7 days old.

While we should be careful of reading too much into these numbers, it would seem that God Himself has had His hand on the unusual rise of Donald Trump and if so would have a particular purpose for his presidency.

Could these Jewish leaders be right that Trump could have a Cyrus call on his life?

Summary
There is great excitement within the Temple Movement in Israel that the time might be drawing near for the long desired rebuilding of the House of God.
While the Sanhedrin is obviously excited about the rise of Trump and rumours of Putin being supportive, it is still early days, and we have no definite statements from either leader to support these assumptions.
As believers we should none-the-less be watching these developments, praying for God's prophesied purposes to be accomplished, and checking our own spiritual lives to make sure that we are ready to meet the soon coming King.

Germany's Muslim Demographic Future
Germany's Muslim population - which surpassed six million in 2016 for the first time - has already changed the face of the country forever.
Germany will need to take in 300,000 migrants annually for the next 40 years to stop population decline, according to a leaked government report.

The document, parts of which were published by the Rheinische Post on February 1, reveals that the German government is counting on permanent mass migration -- presumably from Africa, Asia and the Middle East -- to keep the current size of the German population (82.8 million) stable through 2060.

The report implies that Chancellor Angela Merkel's decision to allow into the country some 1.5 million mostly Muslim migrants between 2015 and 2016 was not primarily a humanitarian gesture, but a calculated effort to stave off Germany's demographic decline and to preserve the future viability of the German welfare state.

If most of the new migrants arriving in Germany for the next four decades are from the Islamic world, the Muslim population of Germany could jump to well over 20 million and account for more than 25% of the overall German population by 2060.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/trumparticlebanner.jpg



Critics of Germany's open-door immigration policy are warning that the recent surge in Germany's Muslim population -- which surpassed six million in 2016 for the first time -- has already changed the face of the country forever.

Mass migration is fast-tracking the rise of Islam in Germany, as evidenced by the proliferation of no-go zones, Sharia courts, polygamy, child marriages and honor violence.

Mass migration has also been responsible for social chaos, including jihadist attacks, a migrant rape epidemic, a public health crisis, rising crime and a rush by German citizens to purchase weapons for self-defense -- and even to abandon Germany altogether.

The government has not said how it plans to integrate potentially millions of additional Muslims into German society. The price for reversing Germany's demographic decline appears to be the further Islamization of Germany under the guise of multiculturalism.

According to the report, which was drafted by the Federal Statistics Office (Destatis), the government had previously predicted that Germany's population would drop from a high of 82 million to 73 million by the year 2060 -- or even 67.6 million in the worst case scenario.

That estimate is now being revised, however, based on a recalculation of forecasts regarding immigration, birth rates and life expectancy.

Due to positive net migration (more people entering the country than leaving it), the German population increased by 1.14 million in 2015, and by another 750,000 in 2016, to reach an all-time high of 82.8 million at the end of 2016, according to preliminary estimates by Destatis.

With a fertility rate of 1.6 births per woman, well below the replacement rate of 2.1, Germany will require a permanent influx of 300,000 migrants per year in order keep the current population level stable through the year 2060, according to the report.

The report stresses the need quickly to integrate migrants into the workforce so that they can begin paying into the social welfare system. "According to past experience, this will not be easy and will take longer than initially often hoped," the report concedes. "Successes will only be visible in the medium to long term."

A recent survey by the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung found that the 30 biggest German companies have employed only 54 refugees, including 50 who have been hired as couriers by Deutsche Post, the logistics provider. Company executives said the main problem is that migrants lack professional qualifications and German language skills.

According to the Federal Labor Office, the educational level of newly arrived migrants in Germany is far lower than expected: only a quarter have a high school diploma, while three quarters have no vocational training at all. Only 4% of new arrivals to Germany are highly qualified.

For now, the vast majority of migrants who entered Germany in 2015 and 2016 are wards of the German state. German taxpayers payed around ¬21.7 billion ($23.4 billion) on aid for refugees and asylum seekers in 2016, and will pay a similar amount in 2017.

A Finance Ministry document revealed that the migrant crisis could end up costing German taxpayers ¬93.6 billion ($101 billion) between now and 2020. About ¬25.7 billion would be for social spending, such as unemployment benefits and housing support. About ¬5.7 billion would be destined for language courses and ¬4.6 billion for integrating refugees into the workforce.

Mass migration has also increased the demand for housing and has pushed up rental costs for ordinary Germans. Some 350,000 new apartments are required each year to meet demand, but only 245,000 apartments were built in 2014, and another 248,000 in 2015, according to the Rheinische Post.

Meanwhile, migrants committed 208,344 crimes in 2015, according to a police report. This figure represented an 80% increase over 2014 and worked out to around 570 crimes committed by migrants every day, or 23 crimes each hour, between January and December 2015.

A leaked German intelligence document warned that mass migration from the Muslim world will lead to increasing political instability in the country.

The document warned that the "integration of hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants will be impossible given the large numbers involved and the already-existing Muslim parallel societies in Germany." The document added:

"We are importing Islamic extremism, Arab anti-Semitism, national and ethnic conflicts of other peoples, as well as a different understanding of society and law. German security agencies are unable to deal with these imported security problems, and the resulting reactions from the German population."

In an interview with Die Welt, an unidentified high-ranking security official said:

"The high influx of people from other parts of the world will lead to the instability of our country. By allowing this mass migration, we are producing extremists. Mainstream society is radicalizing because the majority does not want migration, which is being forced by the political elites. In the future, many Germans will turn away from the constitutional state."
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/TFP_freedvd.jpg


A recent YouGov poll found that 68% of Germans believe that security in the country has deteriorated due to mass migration. Nearly 70% of respondents said they fear for their lives and property in German train stations and subways, while 63% feel unsafe at large public events.

An INSA poll found that 60% of the Germans believe that Islam does not belong to Germany. Nearly half (46%) of those surveyed said they are worried about the "Islamization" of Germany.

If the German election were held today, however, Angela Merkel would easily win another four-year term as chancellor. An INSA poll conducted for Bild on February 2 found that Merkel's ruling Christian Democratic Party (CDU) would win with 33% of the vote, compared to 27% for the center-left Social Democratic Party (SPD) and 9% for the anti-immigration party Alternative for Germany (AfD).

Calculating the Muslim Population of Germany

Germany now vies with France for the highest Muslim population in Western Europe.

The increase in Germany's Muslim population is being fueled by mass migration. An estimated 300,000 migrants arrived in Germany in 2016, in addition to the more than one million who arrived in 2015.

At least 80% (or 800,000 in 2015 and 240,000 in 2016) of the newcomers were Muslim, according to the Central Council of Muslims in Germany.

In addition to the newcomers, the rate of population increase of the Muslim community already living in Germany is around 1.6% per year (or 77,000), according to data extrapolated from a Pew Research Center study on the growth of the Muslim population in Europe.

Based on Pew projections, which were proffered before the current migration crisis, the Muslim population of Germany was to have reached an estimated 5,145,000 by the end of 2015.

Adding the 800,000 Muslim migrants who arrived in Germany in 2015, and the 240,000 who arrived in 2016, combined with the 77,000 natural increase, the Muslim population of Germany jumped by 1,117,000, to reach an estimated 6,262,000 by the end of 2016. This amounts to approximately 7.6% of Germany's overall population of 82.8 million.

The Muslim population of Germany could swell to 20 million as early as 2020, according to the president of the Bavarian Association of Municipalities (Bayerische Gemeindetag), Uwe Brandl.
His forecast is based on so-called family reunifications -- individuals whose asylum applications are approved will subsequently bring between four and eight additional family members to Germany.
More than a decade ago historian Bernard Lewis warned that if current migration trends continue, Europe will be Islamic by the end of the 21st century. Germany's political elites are at the vanguard of making that prediction come true.

What Makes Christianity Different
One aspect of Christianity is so amazing, that it impresses even the CBS Evening News.
Quick, name the practice that most sets Christianity apart from the non-Christian world. Respect for human life? Not really.

Religions such as Jainism have, if anything, an even more uncompromising prohibition against harming any living things.

Sexual morality? Again, there are religions--Orthodox Judaism and Islam immediately come to mind--that place an even higher premium on sexual purity than Christianity.

If you doubt this, ask yourself when was the last time you saw a Christian woman in a burqa.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/salsubannerfeb122017.jpg



The answer to this question is forgiveness.

No other belief system has the equivalent of forgiving your brother seventy times seven, i.e., every time--much less commands you to love your enemies, and bless those who persecute you.

The radical nature of Christian forgiveness is so startling, so overwhelming, that it made the CBS Evening News.

Watch here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCeG1223e1M


The story began in 2005 in the city of Benton Harbor, Michigan. On that day, Jameel McGee was, in his words, "minding his own business," when he was stopped by a policeman, Andrew Collins.

The encounter did not go well for McGee. Collins accused him of selling drugs and arrested him. At the time, McGee insisted that the charges were "all made up."

As CBS noted, "Of course, a lot of accused men make that claim," and the outcome in McGee's case was pretty much the same as in other such cases: He wound up serving four years in prison.

In McGee's words, "I lost everything."

Making matters infinitely worse was that McGee was telling the truth: He was in fact an innocent man.

We know this because the policeman, Collins, was subsequently "caught, and served a year and a half for falsifying many police reports, planting drugs and stealing."

Among the falsified police reports was the one concerning Jameel McGee.

While exoneration is sweet, it doesn't make up for the four years spent behind bars. As McGee told CBS, "My only goal was to seek him when I got home and to hurt him."

He appeared to have gotten his chance when both McGee and Collins ended up working at a café run by Mosaic Christian Community Development Center. As CBS put it, the "bad cop and the wrongfully accused man had no choice but to have it out."

And that brings me back to what I said about Christianity's unique emphasis on forgiveness. Collins told McGee "Honestly, I have no explanation, all I can do is say I'm sorry."

McGee's response, "That was pretty much what I needed to hear."
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/TFP_freedvd.jpg


But McGee did not stop there: He befriended the man who wronged him, so much so that he eventually told Collins that he loved him. As Collins tells the tale, "I just started weeping because he doesn't owe me that. I don't deserve that."

Thankfully, forgiveness, and the healing it brings in its wake, has nothing to do with "deserve."

As McGee, a Christian, understood, we forgive one another because, as Paul told both the Ephesians and the Colossians, God in Christ has forgiven us.

The power of forgiveness transcends personal relationships. Think of the reaction to the Amish forgiving the man who killed ten young girls back in 2007. There was a power at work there that even the most hardened skeptic could not deny.

Today, McGee and Collins share their story with others. At least one person seems to have taken its message to heart.

The CBS reporter ended with the following question: "If these two guys from the coffee shop can set aside their bitter grounds, what's our excuse?"

The answer, especially for the Christian, is "none."

The Evolving Threat of Jihad in the West
Caroline Glick, Jersusalem Post
isis.pngOne of the most important stories related to the September 11 attacks was the one that was deliberately left largely untold. That story is the response of some Muslims in America to the massacre of nearly 3,000 people by Islamic supremacists in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.
According to a Washington Post article published on September 18, 2001, in Jersey City, New Jersey, across the river from the destroyed World Trade Center, “Within hours of the two jetliners plowing into the World Trade Center, law enforcement authorities detained and questioned a number of people who were allegedly seen celebrating the attacks and holding tailgate-style parties on rooftops while they watched the devastation on the other side of the river.”
The New York Post reported on September 15, 2001, that Muslim Americans in Patterson, NJ were also seen celebrating the attacks. Word-of-mouth reports abounded in the weeks and months following September 11 of spontaneous celebrations carried out that day in Dearborn, Michigan, in Virginia and other Muslim American communities.
The most notable aspect of the published reports of the celebrations was that there were so few of them.
After all, the notion that any Muslim Americans would celebrate the jihadist attack was certainly newsworthy.
The stories were suppressed at the time by political leaders. Then New York mayor Rudy Guiliani for instance said the celebrations shouldn’t be reported lest they lead to violent attacks against peaceful Muslims.
Then president George W. Bush rushed to defend and uphold Islam as a “religion of peace,” almost immediately after the attacks. Bush insisted that al-Qaida was a fringe movement and ideology in the world of Islam. Its Islamic supremacism did not reflect either the Islamic faith or the ideology of the overwhelming majority of Muslims.

MARTIAL LAW COMING TO AMERICA
Army Preps For Urban Warfare In MegaCities
The military is increasingly preparing for urban warfare that centers around civil unrest, economic breakdown and widespread riots.
The scenarios are many, the issues are complex. The current anger from the left, who are violently protesting against President Trump, is just one aspect of it.
But the Pentagon and the U.S. national security structure is increasingly looking towards the shifting demographics around the globe - people have moved from rural areas, and shifted into cities.
Where ever conflict stirs, there will be a need for military and SWAT response to the call. Entire cities will be locked down; door to door sweeps will often have violent ends.
Baghdad could be brought home to the streets of America, and the military already knows it.
The powers that be are deeply concerned about the unfolding situations with migrants, illegal immigrants, potential terrorists, political factions, violent protests, arson and riots.
Increasingly, they are training for and expecting a homegrown conflict that will call for them to restore order in a major cities - and even hunt down suspects block to block, like in the Boston Marathon bombing incident, while making some significant infringement of our civil liberties.

During the past several years, there have been reports about unannounced urban warfare drills in major U.S. cities, sometimes in coordination with major events; there have also been military training scenarios that have maintained a consistent theme of civil unrest, economic breakdown and widespread riots.
As Intellihub reported:
For years the alternative media has warned about the US military possibly being used against the American people in a time of economic collapse or any sort of martial law scenario.

Forgotten Dangers - Fukushima Radiation Spikes To 'Unimaginable' Levels
Most people seem to think that since the mainstream media doesn't talk about Fukushima anymore that everything must be under control. Unfortunately, that is not true at all.
Radiation inside one of the damaged reactors at the Fukushima nuclear power facility has reached an "unimaginable" level according to experts.
Because so much nuclear material from Fukushima escaped into the Pacific Ocean, there are many scientists that believe that it was the worst environmental disaster in human history, but most people in the general population seem to think that since the mainstream media really doesn't talk about it anymore that everything must be under control.
Unfortunately, that is not true at all.
In fact, PBS reported just last year that "it is incorrect to say that Fukushima is under control when levels of radioactivity in the ocean indicate ongoing leaks".
And now we have just learned that the radiation level inside reactor 2 is so high that no human could possibly survive being exposed to it.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/trumparticlebanner.jpg
According to the Japan Times, the level of radiation inside the containment vessel of reactor 2 is now estimated to be "530 sieverts per hour"...
The radiation level in the containment vessel of reactor 2 at the crippled Fukushima No. 1 power plant has reached a maximum of 530 sieverts per hour, the highest since the triple core meltdown in March 2011, Tokyo Electric Power Co. Holdings Inc. said.
Tepco said on Thursday that the blazing radiation reading was taken near the entrance to the space just below the pressure vessel, which contains the reactor core.

Pro-Choice Movement Goes After The Ultrasound
The ultrasound is part of a conspiracy to humanize the unborn?
magine being told that microscopes falsely "advance the idea" that bacteria and viruses cause disease. Or what if someone told you that telescopes falsely "advance the idea" that galaxies exist?
You'd think that person was a few fries short of a happy meal, right?
Well that's exactly the sort of argument Moira Weigel made at The Atlantic last month in an article originally entitled--I'm not kidding: "How Ultrasound Advanced the Idea that a Fetus is a Person."

I say "originally," because the title has since been changed to the much less provocative, "How Ultrasound Became Political."
Either way, Weigel's point in this bizarre rant against medical technology is to convince readers that ultrasound imaging does not, in fact, reveal babies in the womb.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/trumparticlebanner.jpg
Rather, it's a tool pro-lifers have used to dupe women into seeing fetuses as human beings.
She begins by recounting ultrasound's origin as a weapon in submarine warfare--a weapon that men soon turned from the ocean's briny depths "toward women's bodies."
"Ultrasound," Weigel opines, "made it possible for the male doctor to evaluate the fetus without female interference," (as if women never become doctors).
"The framing of the ultrasound,"--again, this is a quote--"was notable for what it excluded: the woman. In order to make the fetus visible, it made her disappear." I'm not making this up.
Weigel argues that the form on an ultrasound screen isn't meaningfully different from the "rapidly dividing cell mass" of early pregnancy.

Israel Continues To Rank As One of the Most Powerful Militaries In The World
Just how powerful is the Israeli military?
Israel possessed the 16th strongest military in the world as of March, 2016, according to Global Firepower's annual ranking.
The rankings omit consideration of nuclear capability and it likely that if this were not the case, Israel would gain in rank considerably over the 8 non-nuclear countries currently ranked ahead on the list.
Global Firepower considers amount and diversity of armament, recent combat experience, number of troops, alliances, logistical factors, geography, technological sophistication and many other elements for a total of 50 factors.
When population is taken into consideration as well, Israel's relatively small 8.3 million (98th largest country in the world) easily competes with rival nations that dwarf it in the size, such as Brazil's population of 211 million (15th in the ranking).
Compared within its own region, Israel is still a veritable powerhouse next to Iran at 21st, Saudi Arabia at 24th and Iraq at 59th.
Egypt ranked above Israel if nuclear arms are not taken into account, although Egypt does so with eleven times the population base.
Yet the Six Days War showed the effectiveness of the Israeli defense Force against a coalition of Arab states.
So, what sets Israel so far ahead of other countries and secures its perennially-high position in military rankings?
A 2014 report by Business Insider pointed out that "a close defense relationship with the US and an energetic domestic defense industry give Israel a qualitative edge over all of the region's other militaries."

Gender Neutral Police - "Expectant Mothers" Considered Offensive
The newest target of gendered-language crusaders? Motherhood.
The newest target of gendered-language crusaders? Motherhood.
Gender neutral language guidelines just took a turn for the bizarre, even for the new standards of liberal language manipulators when "expectant mother" made the list of words that could be offensive to pregnant females who identify as male and plan to play the role of fathers.
In an internal document, the British Medical Association has cautioned its members that the use of "pregnant people" is now preferred, along with a series of other similarly awkward terms that try to twist the English language into a bland, liberal parody of itself, so as not to offend even the most sensitive.
The 14-page booklet titled "A Guide To Effective Communication: Inclusive Language In The Workplace" applies to 156,000 doctor members and is meant to guide them in their patient and workplace interactions.

Aging Clergy Could Present Pulpit Vacuum As Millennials Shy Away
The average age of of pastors is seeing a dramatic increase as the West goes through a profound demographic shift.
The West is experiencing a profound demographic shift as the baby boomer generation enters retirement but one surprising effect is the dramatic increase in the average age of pastors who, in record numbers, are choosing not to retire until much later.
An aging pastoral population and the reticence for the millennial generation to fill church leadership roles now threatens to create a vacuum in the pulpit in the coming years.
The Barna Group, in partnership with Pepperdine University, recently published the study The State of Pastors 2017 that reveals the startling 'graying' of Protestant pastors in the United States.
In 1991, George Barna published the book Today's Pastors which placed the average age at 44 years old. Over the past 25 years, the average age of Protestant pastors has increased by a full ten years, going from the original age of 44 years old to an average now of 54 years, edging ever closer to the age of retirement.

Trump's Iran Sanctions Realign US Mideast Policy Back Toward Sunnis And Israel
Trump' shift in approach comes as Iran's regional ambitions continue to spread deeper into Iraq, Yemen, Syria and Lebanon.
President Donald Trump's administration issued new sanctions against Iran's ballistic missile program last week, marking a major step toward realigning U.S. policy in the Middle East away from the Obama administration's rapprochement with the Iranian-Shi'a axis and back toward supporting the interests of America's traditional Sunni regional allies.
The newly announced sanctions target 25 individuals and entities associated with Iran's ballistic missile program, in response to the recent Iranian ballistic missile test that purportedly violated a United Nations resolution forbidding the Islamic Republic from conducting such tests for eight years after the July 2015 Iran nuclear deal.
With the sanctions, Trump backed up his administration's warning from earlier in the week that put Iran "on notice" about its ballistic missile tests and support for terrorism.
Former President Barack Obama had pursued warmer U.S. ties with Iran by making concessions to reach the nuclear deal as well as by not responding to aggressive Iranian behavior.

The Coming Clash With Iran
Why did Trump and Flynn feel the need to threaten Tehran now?
Patrick J. Buchanan
Posted with permission from WND
When Gen. Michael Flynn marched into the White House Briefing Room to declare that "we are officially putting Iran on notice," he drew a red line for President Trump. In tweeting the threat, Trump agreed.
His credibility is now on the line.
And what triggered this virtual ultimatum?
Iran-backed Houthi rebels, said Flynn, attacked a Saudi warship, and Tehran tested a missile, undermining "security, prosperity and stability throughout the Middle East," placing "American lives at risk."
But how so?
The Saudis have been bombing the Houthi rebels and ravaging their country, Yemen, for two years. Are the Saudis entitled to immunity from retaliation in wars they start?
Where is the evidence Iran had a role in the Red Sea attack on the Saudi ship? And why would President Trump make this war his war?
As for the Iranian missile test, a 2015 U.N. resolution "called upon" Iran not to test nuclear-capable missiles. It did not forbid Iran from testing conventional missiles, which Tehran insists this was.
Is the United States making new demands on Iran not written into the nuclear treaty or international law – to provoke a confrontation?
Did Flynn coordinate with our allies about this warning of possible military action against Iran? Is NATO obligated to join any action we might take?
Or are we going to carry out any retaliation alone, as our NATO allies observe, while the Israelis, Gulf Arabs, Saudis and the Beltway War Party, which wishes to be rid of Trump, cheer him on?
Bibi Netanyahu hailed Flynn's statement, calling Iran's missile test a flagrant violation of the U.N. resolution and declaring, "Iranian aggression must not go unanswered." By whom, besides us?
The Saudi king spoke with Trump Sunday. Did he persuade the president to get America more engaged against Iran?
Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker is among those delighted with the White House warning:
"No longer will Iran be given a pass for its repeated ballistic missile violations, continued support of terrorism, human rights abuses and other hostile activities that threaten international peace and security."

Islamization Grows In France
Is France on it's way to an Islamic theocracy? A new survey attempts to classify French Muslims based on their actual beliefs.
Since its revolution in the 18th century, France has been known as a center of freethinking and modern Western values, but this has rapidly changed over the last fifteen years in a startling process of Islamization.
Now many experts fear that France is nearing a tipping point in this culture war as Islamic values, Islamic law and Islam itself replaces French identity in a movement that seized the country from the bottom up.
For those interested in educating themselves on the destruction of France as a nation, two books titled Subjugated France look at this growing wave of Salafism, one in 2002 and its update 15 years later, show the replacement of French laws and French values with those of Islamic theocracy.
By French law, the government is barred from asking questions of race or religion through any census or official government action.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/treefeb03.jpg
The decades old law was intended to prevent racial and religious discrimination, but the effect has been to blind the French State to the true scope of the threat that it faces.

The Biblical Infidelity Of Progressive Christians
Flying under the banner of social justice or emergent church, the Christian Left is nothing more than what they claimed to hate in the old "Religious Right" One of the most fascinating speeches in the Bible happens in Acts 5 with Jewish Pharisee Gamaliel addressing the Sanhedrin. He warns them that if the message being preached by the Apostles of Jesus was of man, it would fail. But if it was from God, it couldn't be stopped.
It was of God, and it wasn't stopped.
I find that passage particularly relevant today within American Christendom.
There is a reason that liberal Christian movements like those championed by Jim Wallis, Rachel Held Evans, Shane Claiborne and others are so ineffective and unpersuasive in American culture.
Rather than seeking to glorify and build the Kingdom of God, they regularly appropriate the language of Scripture to advocate for earthly, largely political causes that never address the principal need of humanity: redemption from sin.
For instance, preaching the words of Scripture when it comes to our nation's policy towards refugees is admirable (provided it is done in context) only if you don't ignore, downplay, or reject the counsel of Scripture when it comes to policy regarding abortion, marriage, and human sexuality.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/treefeb03.jpg
So-called progressive Christians have long chastised their conservative brethren for cherry-picking Scripture to support certain political causes. And to the extent that conservatives have done that, it has been to our detriment.
One need only walk through the graveyard of the "Religious Right" for confirmation of that reality. The Religious Right did not fall apart because it sought to apply the truth of the Bible to politics. It was when it tied the message of the Gospel to a political agenda.
Before long, the Republican Party became an idol, and its success was seen as the most effective way to advance righteousness in the land. The Religious Right ceased to be about God, and thus it ceased to be.

The "Palestinian Village" Where Children Are Raised To Be Terrorists
In 1996 Hillary Clinton wrote a children's book titled "It Takes a Village." The "Palestinian village," sadly, is a place where children are raised to be terrorists. Like schoolchildren everywhere, Palestinian Arab children occasionally are assigned by their teachers to write poems. But the poetry they produce is not like that of children in the U.S. or elsewhere in the free world.
Palestinian Media Watch reports that twice in the past month, a children's program on official Palestinian Authority Television (PA TV) featured children reciting their poems. Among the most common terms they used: "blood," "slaughter" and "revolution."
The PA TV program is called "The Best Home," and the children who were selected to read their poems on air were obviously meant to exemplify what children in "the best Palestinian homes" should believe.
In the Jan. 6 edition, a little Palestinian boy named Muhammad proudly recited these lines about Jews, and what Arabs should do to them: "As we expelled them from Gaza and Sderot; As we slaughtered them in your streets, Beirut; For you, Yasser Arafat, for you we shall die...."
The boy continued with a specific declaration of identification with Fatah, the terrorist movement that is chaired by PA President Mahmoud Abbas: "Tomorrow we will take our vengeance, and their leader will be carried in a coffin; We, Fatah, are a storm, and our blood is food for the revolution...."
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/treefeb03.jpg
Just to make it crystal clear to the viewing audience that the boy's words have the approval and blessing of the PA regime, the program's host (a PA employee) exclaimed at the end: "Bravo, Muhammad, thank you, thank you, thank you!"
There was more Palestinian children's poetry on display in the Jan. 20 edition of "The Best Home." This time, a girl and a boy together recited these charming lines: "We want to speak openly, with no hesitation and with no fear; World, hear and see, my rock has turned into an AK-47 [assault rifle]; Your words are true, Yasser Arafat; O mountain, the wind will not move you."

City Killers - Electromagnetic Pulse Artillery Shells
Could one single artillery shell take out the electronics of an entire city?
The US Army is developing a compact electromagnetic pulse weapon (EMP) weapon capable of fitting inside a 155mm artillery shell capable of being fired near key enemy infrastructure.
The artillery shell, with its non-explosive payload, would be used to disable the electronics and radio communications equipment of anything within a given radius around its flight path.
Such a weapon would disable the modern war-fighting capabilities of an enemy but, aimed at an enemy town or city, it would act as a siege weapon that would disable all communications and electronic infrastructure in the vicinity.
Similar in concept to the nuclear-based neutron bombs that the Soviet Union developed to kill through intense radiation while leaving equipment unaffected, the EMP rounds would disable sensitive equipment while leaving biological life unharmed.

Christian Converts From Islam Face Beheading In Somalia
Somalia is second only to North Korea in the level of danger to its Christian population.
Somalia is second only to North Korea in the level of danger to its Christian population and a recent series of beheadings and other gruesome public murders of Christians has underscored this fact.
Somalia has for decades been a country plagued by extreme poverty and lawlessness but as al-Shabaab Islamic extremists struggle to exert control of towns outside the control of the weak central government, the level of violence directed toward Christians has increased.
Ironically, Somalia's constitution officially allows for religious freedom while at the same time establishing Islam as the State religion.
So, it comes as no surprise that the persecution suffered by Christians tells a far different story. Al-Shabaab militiamen and other radicals, spread throughout the country, seize anyone suspected of converting to Christianity and accounts of public beheadings are becoming all too common.

New Fears For Terrorist Drone Attack After ISIS Proves It Has Weaponized Drone
Is a terrorist drone attack inevitable?
ISIS is boasting that it has entered the drone arms race after it released their first video showing weaponized drones being used against Iraqi forces.
ISIS has been using drone photography to follow suicide bombers and film the attacks from the air for propaganda purposes for quite some time but this is the first time it has weaponized a drone.
It doesn't seem that long ago that drones were regarded as being incredibly high-tech, and prohibitively expensive. That's no longer the case.
Hobbyists race drones against one another through obstacle courses, companies are developing drone delivery services, we're using them to collect geographical data. Yesterday's shiny new gadget is today's affordable toy.

Chrislam Insanity – Qur'an Readings In The Church That Deny Deity Of Jesus Christ
The Church is in a sorry state indeed when the deity of Christ can be denied and the beliefs of another faith espoused from the pulpit of a Christian church.
The Christmas service in Saint Mary's Episcopal Church in Glasgow, Scotland was the cause of no small of controversy when it included a reading of Quranic verses that deny the deity of Christ.
Lest you think that these were read by the Very Rev. Kelvin Holdsworth for their historical or comparative value, video of the service shows the verses being recited in Arabic by a Muslim woman as if she were leading a worship service of Allah in a Mosque (a privilege denied to Muslim women, ironically).
Conducting theological discussions on points of comparative religion can improve understanding of other religions, but that is not what happened here.
Interfaith dialog can be quite positive and lead to better community relations and greater respect, while acknowledging sincere differences of belief.
But that was also not what took place this Christmas in the Cathedral of Glasgow.
In this case, an explicitly anti-Christian message was incorporated into one of the most important celebrations of the year, and Jesus was denied from the pulpit as the congregation sat and looked on.

A Lack of Compassion: "World's Largest Democracy" Clamps Down on Christians
Compassion International has told it's sponsors of 130,000 Indian children that it would cease operations in India in mid-March.
On January 13th, Compassion International told the sponsors of 130,000 Indian children that, barring an unlikely turn of events, it would cease operations in India in mid-March.
The announcement came a year after the Indian government told the organization that "it could no longer receive funding from outside the subcontinent."
While the news dismayed Compassion's donors, it shouldn't have come as a surprise to those familiar with the deteriorating state of religious freedom in India.
Compassion's announcement comes shortly after Open Doors International released its "World Watchlist," which ranked the worst countries in which to be a Christian.

Jewish Ex-State Department Gang Undermines Embassy Move
The machine, Automated Virtual Agent for Truth Assessments in Realtime (AVATAR), is designed as a robot-type kiosk and is now being considered for implementation by the Canadian Border Services Agency. If AVATAR is successful, it is almost certain to be adopted by both employers and law enforcement agencies around the world.
Someday, perhaps, a team of sociologists and psychologists will examine the curious question of why Jewish ex-State Department officials are obsessed with Israel.
Until that day comes, though, the rest of us will be stuck having to listen to those officials' relentless harassment of Israel and promotion of the Palestinian cause.
As the US debates whether to move the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the New York Times trotted out two former State Department officials, both Jewish, to pour cold water on the idea.
The officials, Aaron David Miller and David Makovsky, now enjoy well-heeled positions at the Woodrow Wilson International Center and the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, respectively.

2016 In Review: Christian Persecution In Crisis
2016 has broken records for Christian persecution across the world yet it remains one of the least reported stories in the media.
Once again, 2016 has broken records for Christian persecution across the world.

From terrorist attacks and mass killings to increasingly oppressive laws targeting Christians with imprisonment and excessive fines for practicing their faith, the wave of violence continues to swell.

The atrocities of the Islamic State, the genocide committed by Boko Haram in Nigeria, hundreds of new church burnings in India and the 2016 Easter Sunday bombing in Lahore, Pakistan which killed 74 and injured 320 are all just a few examples of the violence and fear Christians around the world must endure each day.

Several new studies were recently published that track the nature and extent of persecution using varying methodologies, but there is little doubt that the world is growing increasingly hostile to Christians.

To gain a more accurate idea of the dangers faced by Christians, just this month Open Doors USA published its annual World Watch List of the 50 worst countries for Christian persecution.


Both Gordon-Conwell's Center for the Study of Global Christianity and the Turin-based Center for Studies on New Religions have published their own annual reports on killings and persecutions of Christians which largely agree in quantitative terms.

Though the exact totals diverge due to different data gathering methodology, all the research agrees that the trend, especially in the past three years, has seen an increase in persecution.

Open Doors identifies 2016 as the worst year on record after steadily increasing violence since 2014. Though confirmed martyrdom cases total 1,200 deaths, this fails to account for thousands more in active combat zones such as Iraq, Syria and places in Africa where data is difficult to confirm.

The Center for the Study of Global Christianity and Center for Studies on New Religions both offer a more liberal estimate of 27,000 Christians killed for their faith with an additional 63,000 Christians killed over tribal or territorial conflicts, primarily throughout Africa.

North Korea once again tops the Open Doors' list (for the 16th consecutive year) as the most oppressive country for Christians, but Somalia is a close second.

"If a Christian is discovered in Somalia, they are unlikely to live to see another day. Just the suspicion that someone is a Christian can lead to a rushed beheading," said Lisa Pearce, CEO of Open Doors UK and Ireland.

Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sudan, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Yemen and Eritrea round out the top ten worst nations.

The full list can be found here WWL 2016 with not only the ranking, but also individual analysis of each country.

All the countries after North Korea in the top ten are majority Muslim countries and Islam is in fact the primary source of persecution in 35 out of the 50 countries found on the list.

The total number of Christians facing high, very high or extreme levels of persecution is estimated at 215 million.

In the world's largest democracy, Christianity has increasingly become a target of harsh new laws, violent mobs and systematic killing at the hands of Hindu nationalists.

These Hindu nationalists use discrimination and non-violent oppression first on minority Christians, who are largely from the lower social castes, but have increasingly turned to church burnings and campaigns of murder of Dalits and other poor, Indian Christians.

"This year there is a clear pattern of rising religious intolerance across the Indian sub-continent which affects many millions of Christians," said Lisa Pearce.

Iran, coming in at number eight on the list, has refrained from the mass killings and mob violence seen in Pakistan, Syria, India and elsewhere, but has instead embarked on a campaign of social control of churches, arbitrary arrest and torture along with the widespread use of crippling fines for practicing Christian beliefs that amounts to a mass seizure of wealth.

Although it may be easy for those who live in developed nations to forget or ignore the suffering taking place in distant lands, it is important to keep in mind the plight of our brothers and sisters in Christ.

For the millions living in fear and worshiping in secret, the price of their faith can be very high indeed.

So, take a moment to keep these persecuted Christians in your prayers, in your politics and consider supporting an aid organization trying to make a difference such as Open Doors.

Divinity Schools Stop Praying To The Father; Use Gender-Neutral Language
The gender war has now moved from bathroom regulations and into the recommended language in theology classes.
The gender war has now moved from bathroom regulations and into the recommended language in theology classes.

The divinity schools at Duke and Vanderbilt Universities have rekindled debate, previously addressed at Notre Dame and Harvard, by issuing gender neutral guidance to their professors.

Referring to God as "Father", it would seem, serves to reinforce patriarchy.

The current year's course catalog for Vanderbilt University advises professors that they should pay "consistent attention to the use of inclusive language, especially in relation to the Divine because the school commits continuously and explicitly to include gender as an analyzed category and to mitigate sexism."


The course guide goes on to explain that "masculine titles, pronouns and imagery for God have served as a cornerstone for patriarchy."

As it notes that not all names used for God are gendered, it calls for professors to seek an "exploration of fresh language for God." A suggested "beginning point for developing a more inclusive language about God" are terms such as "God" and "Godself" (rather than Himself).

Though the debate may seem petty to some and a gross imposition of feminism to others, there has been significant academic study on the origins of gendered language for God.

The Hebrew Elohim used in Genesis is a dual gendered term that can be singular (for emphasis) or plural, for example.

Then there are references such as Isaiah 66:13 "As a mother comforts her child, so I will comfort you; you shall be comforted in Jerusalem." or the many references to childbirth, such as John 1:12 "But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.

When a pastor refers to God as the Father or Jesus as the Son, this is merely referencing attributes of God's nature through such labels.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/TFP_freedvd.jpg


To play linguistic games now serves little purpose but to push a feminist agenda that seeks to undo millennia of tradition. The trinity is composed of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, not as an accident but because those aspects of God are ever present.

Arguments that de-emphasize the masculine grammar in religious language can decrease oppression of women and erode the power of the patriarchy, but don't pass the test of history either.

Hinduism contains a great number of explicitly female deities and Hindu sects that devote themselves to the feminine Kali are no less patriarchic or oppressive to women than any others in a typically "patriarch" Indian society.

The associate dean for academic affairs at Vanderbilt's school of divinity, Melissa Snarr, explained in an email that the precise use of gendered language "is up to the individual professor's interpretation for their classes and is suggestive rather than mandatory.

Few would deny that the awareness of God's nature as being beyond human gender is positive, but if the result is both awkward and unnaturally "progressive" in its attempt to push its liberal agenda, does it really belong in the pulpit or the classroomor neither?

The War On Cash - EU Now Pushing "Restrictions On Payments In Cash"
We may be only one terror attack away from such actions being justified to eliminate cash completely.
In the most far-reaching move toward a cashless society to date, the European Commission proposed enforcing "restrictions on payments in cash" under an all-too-familiar premise -- because terrorism.

"Payments in cash are widely used in the financing of terrorist activities," the Commission's proposal states. "In this context, the relevance of potential upper limits to cash payments could also be explored. Several Member States have in place prohibitions for cash payments above a specific threshold."

On the heels of the European Central Bank's discontinuation of the ¬500 note, the Commission's plan would drastically scale back civilians' ability to conduct transactions using currency -- and, by default, will allow banks and the State further means to track individuals via bank cards.

According to the Commission's Inception Impact Assessment,

Cash has the important feature of offering anonymity to transactions. Such anonymity may be desired for legitimate reason (e.g. protection of privacy).

But, such anonymity can also be misused for money laundering and terrorist financing purposes. The possibility to conduct large cash payments facilitates money laundering and terrorist financing activities because of the difficulty to control cash payment transactions.


In other words, because criminals and terrorists use paper currency, the ability for law-abiding citizens to conduct anonymous transactions with cash must be curtailed.

For any number of reasons -- not the least of which is the laughable presumption terrorists would just walk into a store and purchase big ticket tools of the trade -- this assessment fails the sniff test.

In actuality, moving away from the use of physical currency constitutes a veritable jackpot for the West's Surveillance State, and presents myriad possibilities for abuse by the European Commission and member governments.

How long will it be, after all, before such restrictions extend to transactions of lesser sums?

"Potential restrictions to cash payments would be a means to fight criminal activities entailing large payment transactions in cash by organised criminal networks," the plan states.

"Restricting large payments in cash, in addition to cash declarations and other AML obligations, would hamper the operation of terrorist networks, and other criminal activities, i.e. have a preventive effect.

It would also facilitate further investigations to track financial transactions in the course of terrorist activities."

Notably, though the proposal repeatedly proffers the preventive effect made possible through prohibitions on large cash transactions, evidence supporting that theory is glaringly absent. It continues:

Effective investigations are hindered as cash payments transactions are anonymous. Thus restrictions on cash payments would facilitate investigations.

However, as cash transactions are moved to the financial system, it is essential that financial institutions have adequate controls and procedures in place that enable them to know the person with whom they are dealing.

Adequate due diligence on new and existing customers is a key part of these controls in, line with the AMLD [Anti-Money Laundering Directive].

Terrorists use cash to sustain their illegal activities, not only for illegal transactions (e.g. the acquisition of explosives) but also for payments which are in appearance legal (e.g. transactions for accommodation or transport).

While a restriction on payments in cash would certainly be ignored for transactions that are in any case already illegal, the restriction could create a significant hindrance to the conduct of transactions that are ancillary to terrorist activities.

The Commission's own language evinces a degree of doubt as to whether such a plan would work, saying only "the restriction could create a significant hindrance" to terrorist operations.

Indeed, as pointed out by Sovereign Man's, Simon Black, restricting large-sum cash dealings might have the opposite effect on crime:

If you examine countries with very low denominations of cash, the opposite holds true: crime rates, and in particular organized crime rates, are extremely high.

Consider Venezuela, Nigeria, Brazil, South Africa, etc. Organized crime is prevalent. Yet each of these has a currency whose maximum denomination is less than $30.

The same trend holds true when looking at corruption and tax evasion.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/TFP_freedvd.jpg


Yet the European Commission still asserts, "Organised crime and terrorism financing rely on cash for payments for carrying out their illegal activities and benefitting from them.

By restricting the possibilities to use cash, the proposal would contribute to disrupt the financing of terrorism, as the need to use non anonymous means of payment would either deter the activity or contribute to its easier detection and investigation."

Perhaps the most astonishing and erroneous assumption in the plan is that terrorists and criminals will suddenly abide the law -- as if malicious groups would surmise, 'Well, large cash transactions aren't possible, so I guess we'll have to find another line of work.'

Black presents several examples of countries who have taken the leap away from paper currency only to be hit with soaring crime rates.

In short, banning or severely limiting paper currency is ineffective at what governments claim such programs are intended to do, as Black continues,

Bottom line, the political and financial establishments want you to willingly get on board with the idea of abolishing, or at least reducing, cash...

Simply put, the data doesn't support their assertion. It's just another hoax that will give them more power at the expense of your privacy and freedom.

Freedom to spend, as one desires, on what one chooses comprises such a basic right, governments have had to propagate a massive campaign to conflate physical money with the criminal element -- because the reality is, everyone uses paper currency -- even if the Commission disagrees:

While being allowed to pay in cash does not constitute a fundamental right, the objective of the initiative, which is to prevent the anonymity that cash payments allow, might be viewed as an infringement of the right to privacy enshrined in Article 7 of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights [...]

It should also be observed that national restrictions to cash payments were never successfully challenged based on an infringement to fundamental rights.

It might seem convenient to gradually abolish paper currency in favor of, for instance, a bank or other card for all transactions, but the brutal truth of a cashless society is the heaviest hand of the State in our private lives.

The March for Life And the Anti-Trump Women's March: A Study In Contrasts
Two marches, two very different messages.
I'm writing this article on the eve of the 44th annual March for Life, but I can tell you in advance how it will differ dramatically from the recent Women's March, organized in protest of the inauguration of President Trump.

First, the media coverage of the events will be totally different.

Whereas the Women's March was in the mainstream media's spotlight, the March for Life will be a mere footnote for most mainstream outlets, regardless of how many people attend.

The fact that Vice President Pence will be speaking at the event - the first time a vice president has done so - might get some attention, but comparatively, the coverage of the Women's March will dwarf the coverage of the March for Life.

Not only so, but there's a good chance that those protesting the March for Life - always a miniscule number in comparison to the overall crowd - will get just as much media attention as the participants and the speakers, thereby giving a totally skewed impression to viewers and readers.


Second, the spirit of the events will be totally different.

Despite the deep conviction of pro-lifers that we have witnessed an abortion holocaust, there will be no calls to burn down or blow up abortion clinics (contrast Madonna's thoughts about blowing up the White House while speaking at the Women's March), nor will there be vulgar and obscene attacks on individuals (contrast Ashley Judd's truly deplorable comments).

There will be nothing in the pro-life speeches that will incite people to violence or hatred. Instead, there will be an appeal for life - life for the most innocent and unprotected citizens of our society - and a call to honor life.

And if my surmises are correct, the streets of DC will not be littered with signs and objects from the March for Life, in contrast with the litter left behind by the Women's March.

Third, the ideology of the events will be totally different.

Among the March for Life participants, you will not see signs with messages like this one, from the Women's March, proclaiming, "My menstrual blood will flow through the streets fighting for women of all genders," nor will you hear from radical feminists like Aida Hurtado and Gloria Steinem, extreme media leftists like filmmaker Michael Moore and CNN commentator Van Jones, transgender activists like Janet Mock and Raquel Willis, or women like Donna Hylton, who spent 27 years in prison for her role in the brutal kidnaping, torture and murder of a man. All of these were listed as speakers at the Women's March.

To sample some of the best-known quotes of Hurtado, "White men need white women in a way that they do not need women of Color because women of Color cannot fulfill white men's need for racially pure offspring."

And, "White men perceive women of Color primarily as workers and as objects of sexual power and aggression. Their sexual objectification of women of Color allows white men to express power and aggression sexually, without the emotional entanglements of, the rituals that are required in, relationships with women of their own group."

This is the kind of divisive identity politics that will be absent from the March for Life.

As for Hylton, her message at the march was one of solidarity with female prisoners of color, wanting to tell their story to the world, and I'm sure it's a story we need to hear.

Regrettably, she spoke not a word of her horrific past - not a word of remorse to say, "I was justly incarcerated for my actions, which I deeply regret and categorically renounce" - but only a word of solidarity with "all of those women who have been overlooked, marginalized, sexualized, dehumanized and silenced."

Her failure to renounce her past horrific deeds makes it difficult to hear the positive message she sought to bring.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/DTF_Course.jpg


Contrast that with the spirit of the late Dr. Bernard Nathanson, a founding father of NARAL known affectionately by his colleagues as the "abortion king," responsible for 75,000 abortions (by his own estimate), but who experienced a radical change of heart after watching an ultrasound of an abortion and became a pro-life icon.

Dr. Nathanson spoke at the 25th March for Life in 1998, and you can be sure his message always included the renouncing of his past sins.

And that, perhaps, will be the greatest contrast between the Women's March and the March for Life.

While the former certainly had some redemptive content, along with genuine concern about our new president, in no way was its overarching theme one of redemption or life or hope or even dignity. (In reality, many aspects of the Women's March were downright degrading to women.)

In stark contrast, the great theme of the March for Life will be one of redemption and life and hope and dignity.

Watch and see.

By the time many of you read this article, the 44th annual March for Life, along with the coverage of it by the media, will be history.

Prepping Moves From The Fringe To The Elite
Prepping was something that was previously considered to be on "the lunatic fringe". But in 2017, wealthy elitists are actually the most hardcore preppers of all.
Once upon a time, "prepping" was something that was considered to be on "the lunatic fringe" of society. But in 2017, wealthy elitists are actually the most hardcore preppers of all.

This is particularly true in places such as Silicon Valley, where a whole host of young tech moguls are putting a tremendous amount of time, effort and money into preparing for apocalyptic scenarios.

So while interest in prepping among the general population has fallen extremely low right now, the election of Donald Trump has given liberal wealthy elitists even more urgency to prepare for what they believe is a very uncertain future.

In the January 30th, 2017 edition of the New Yorker, reporter Evan Osnos has done an extraordinary job of profiling these wealthy elitists that are "getting ready for the crackup of civilization". One of the people that he interviewed was Steve Huffman, the young co-founder and CEO of Reddit...

Huffman, who lives in San Francisco, has large blue eyes, thick, sandy hair, and an air of restless curiosity; at the University of Virginia, he was a competitive ballroom dancer, who hacked his roommate's Web site as a prank.

He is less focussed on a specific threat--a quake on the San Andreas, a pandemic, a dirty bomb--than he is on the aftermath, "the temporary collapse of our government and structures," as he puts it. "I own a couple of motorcycles. I have a bunch of guns and ammo. Food. I figure that, with that, I can hole up in my house for some amount of time."

According to the article, Huffman estimates that "fifty-plus percent" of his elite friends in Silicon Valley have some form of "apocalypse insurance". Needless to say, that number would be far higher than for the general population as a whole.


Another tech mogul that was interviewed by Osnos for the story was former Facebook product manager Antonio García Martínez...

Last spring, as the Presidential campaign exposed increasingly toxic divisions in America, Antonio García Martínez, a forty-year-old former Facebook product manager living in San Francisco, bought five wooded acres on an island in the Pacific Northwest and brought in generators, solar panels, and thousands of rounds of ammunition. "When society loses a healthy founding myth, it descends into chaos," he told me.

The author of "Chaos Monkeys," an acerbic Silicon Valley memoir, García Martínez wanted a refuge that would be far from cities but not entirely isolated. "All these dudes think that one guy alone could somehow withstand the roving mob," he said. "No, you're going to need to form a local militia. You just need so many things to actually ride out the apocalypse."

Once he started telling peers in the Bay Area about his "little island project," they came "out of the woodwork" to describe their own preparations, he said. "I think people who are particularly attuned to the levers by which society actually works understand that we are skating on really thin cultural ice right now."

As you can see, a lot of these liberal elitists are actually secretly stashing away lots of guns and ammunition.

So don't believe everything that you read about them being "anti-gun".

Other big names in Silicon Valley have decided that having a property on the other side of the planet is the best form of "apocalypse insurance". The following comes from a story about Paypal founder Peter Thiel in the New York Times...

Mr. Thiel's admiration for New Zealand is longstanding. "Utopia," he once called it. He has an investment firm in the country that has put millions into local start-ups. He also owns lavish properties there, which his Silicon Valley friends hope to fly to in the event of a worldwide pandemic.

And of course Thiel is far from alone. So many wealthy individuals are buying up property in New Zealand these days that it is actually becoming a significant political issue over there.

In fact, it is being reported that foreigners purchased an astounding 3500 square kilometers during the first ten months of 2016...

Statistics showed foreigners had bought over 3500 square kilometers of New Zealand in the first ten months of 2016, which is over four times as much as they did in the same period in 2010.

LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman told The New Yorker that New Zealand had become the hot topic among Silicon Valley leaders lately.

"Saying you're 'buying a house in New Zealand' is kind of a wink, wink, say no more. Once you've done the Masonic handshake, they'll be, like, 'Oh, you know, I have a broker who sells old ICBM silos, and they're nuclear-hardened, and they kind of look like they would be interesting to live in."

Hoffman estimated that over half of the Silicon Valley insiders were into preparedness - especially since anti-elite sentiment has risen around the globe in recent years. It was intensified by events like Brexit and the election of Donald Trump, he added.

So are these wealthy elitists ahead of the curve, or are they just being paranoid?
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/DTF_Course.jpg


Only time will tell, but they didn't become exceedingly wealthy in the first place by being stupid.

As I discussed yesterday on The Most Important News, there are certainly reasons to be optimistic now that Donald Trump has become president, but there are also lots of reasons to be prepping harder than ever.

We should be hopeful for the future and working for a better tomorrow, but we also need to understand that we live in a world that is becoming increasingly unstable.

And most of us think that it is just common sense to purchase insurance for our homes, our cars, our health, our lives and so many other things, and yet most of the population is completely unprepared for a major catastrophic event.

It is a good thing to have balance in life. My wife and I are very proud preppers, and there won't ever be a time when we aren't prepping.

But we also live our lives without any fear. We know that the world is going to get crazier and crazier, but we do not believe that it is a time to dig a hole and try to hide from the world.

Rather, now is a time to rise up and become the people that we were created to be.

So unlike these wealthy elitists, let us not be in fear of what is coming. There is no other time in history that I would have rather lived than right here and right now, and I can't wait to see what comes next.

Pro-Israel Christians Rally Support For A US Embassy In Jerusalem
President Trump will need to decide by June 1 between another waiver or an embassy move.
Aside from its centrality to Jewish peoplehood as the home of the ancient Jewish Temples and now the modern state of Israel's capital, Jerusalem is also synonymous with Judaism for many Bible-reading Christians.

As such, prominent pro-Israel Christian organizations are lining up to express their support for President Donald Trump's promise to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and to hold the president accountable for his words.

Susan Michael, U.S. director for the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ), said Christians already understand that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and would like to see the American government follow suit.

In fact, ICEJ has had its own "unofficial" embassy in Jerusalem since 1980, a point that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu noted in his 2016 Christmas address.

"Hundreds of millions of Christians around the world understand from their Bible the spiritual significance of Jerusalem to the Jewish people, and that it was established as the capital of Israel some 3,000 years ago by King David," Michael told JNS.org, adding that Christians "believe the spiritual law of blessing established in Genesis 12 that God will bless those who bless the Jewish people....They want to see the U.S. standing in support of Israel and enjoying the blessings of doing so."

Matthew Staver, founder and chairman of the Liberty Counsel evangelical Christian organization and president of the Christians in Defense of Israel ministry, echoed Michael's assessment.

Pro-Woman, Not Pro-Abortion
Women who don't support abortion aren't real women, according to many modern feminists. Here's why they should read more history.
In a recent Saturday Night Live sketch, a group of millennial women visit the historic home of suffragette Susan B. Anthony in Rochester, New York.

Devout feminists one and all, they decide before leaving to invoke the ghost of Anthony by saying her name three times. Lo and behold, she appears, played by Kate McKinnon--bun, lace collar, and all.

Hilariously, the modern feminists find Anthony quite boring. She drones on about women's rights and dignity, while they check their smart phones and argue about dinner. Until finally she says something that wakes them all up: "Abortion is murder!"

Doubtless many modern feminists were taken aback by this Saturday Night slip-up, given the show's liberal leanings. But as Serrin Foster of Feminists for Life told National Review, all of the "feminist foremothers...without known exception, spoke out against abortion."


That's right. The suffragettes--Susan B. Anthony in particular--were fiercely pro-life, calling abortion a "crime against humanity," "feticide," and "child murder." In fact, one of the primary organizations backing pro-life candidates today--the Susan B. Anthony list--does so in her name.

Given how close the unborn were to the hearts of the earliest women's rights crusaders, it's troubling to see how unwelcome pro-life women are on the modern feminist stage. We saw this discrimination vividly last week during the nationwide Women's March.

Muffled but not quite absent were the voices of pro-life women. Several prominent pro-life organizations that applied as partners of the women's march were either dis-invited or ignored, though several showed up anyway.

Even the New York Times, in a surprising and praiseworthy piece, documented the virtual blackout of pro-life messages at the demonstration.

After booting a Texas anti-abortion group, Women's March co-chairwoman, Linda Sarsour, told the Times, "If you want to come to the march you are coming with the understanding that you respect a woman's right to choose."

In other words, pro-lifers not welcome!

"This is what we conservative women live with all the time," said Charmaine Yoest, senior fellow at American Values: "This idea that somehow we aren't really women and we just reflect internalized misogyny."

The Women's March was, Yoest concluded, a "wholly owned subsidiary of the abortion movement." And were it not for the unexpected coverage by the Grey Lady, these organizers may have succeeded in drowning out the pro-life message.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/TFP_freedvd.jpg


But as Bob Dylan sang, the times, they're a changin'. Just this month, the pro-choice Guttmacher Institute reported that abortions in the United States have fallen to their lowest rate since Roe v. Wade.

A lot has contributed to this decline, from pro-life legislation and ultrasound availability, to acceptance of unwed motherhood. So the news isn't all good.

But when you consider the growing movement of young people who see the rights of the unborn as a social justice issue, the tired assumption that feminism equals abortion support really begins to falter.

Even pop culture and late night TV are straying from the pro-abortion script.

And as Kathryn Jean Lopez wrote in National Review, this may be our chance to reintroduce an older, better women's movement--one that didn't pit the rights of mothers against the lives of their unborn children.

Pentagon Pursues "LOCUST" Drone Swarm Technology - Precursor To Revelation 9?
The Pentagon has continued it's quest to unleash a 21st-century version of locusts on its adversaries, but is there a Biblical connection to this technology?
The Pentagon continued it's quest to unleash a 21st-century version of locusts on its adversaries this week after another successful test of drone swarm technology was completed using 103 Perdix micro-drones.
This large scale drone army is made possible by advancements in artificial intelligence, which allows groups of robots to act together to demonstrate advanced swarm behaviors such as collective decision-making, adaptive formation flying and self-healing.
"Perdix are not pre-programmed synchronized individuals, they are a collective organism, sharing one distributed brain for decision-making and adapting to each other like swarms in nature," said William Roper, director of the Pentagon's Strategic Capabilities Office.

Potential Crisis Looming - Foreigners Are Dumping U.S. Debt At Record Pace
While most of the country has been focused on the inauguration of Donald Trump, a very real financial crisis has been brewing behind the scenes.
While most of the country has been focused on the inauguration of Donald Trump, a very real crisis has been brewing behind the scenes.
Foreigners are dumping U.S. debt at a faster rate than we have ever seen before, and U.S. Treasury yields have been rising.
This is potentially a massive problem, because our entire debt-fueled standard of living is dependent on foreigners lending us gigantic mountains of money at ultra-low interest rates.
If the average rate of interest on U.S. government debt just got back to 5 percent, which would still be below the long-term average, we would be paying out about a trillion dollars a year just in interest on the national debt.
If foreigners keep dumping our debt and if Treasury yields keep climbing, a major financial implosion of historic proportions is absolutely guaranteed within the next four years.
One of the most significant aspects of the "Obama legacy" is the appalling mountain of debt that he has left behind.

Has the Time Come For Amexit From The UN?
As British Prime Minister Theresa May plans a Brexit from the EU, Americans may soon ask what kind of exit we want from another international institution. In our case, the organization is not the European Union, but the United Nations. Earlier this month, Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) introduced a bill to block taxpayer dollars from going to the UN.
These senators, like many Americans, are incensed by a recent anti-Israel resolution adopted by the world body. But the US' problems with the UN run deeper than one bad resolution.
They are endemic to the institution. At some point, our elected leaders will ask whether the time has come not just to defund, but also to depart -- and then replace the UN with something better.

Obama Quietly Sent Palestinians $221 Million In Final Hours Of Presidency
Despite concerns over corruption, incitement of violence, and paying salaries to terrorists, Obama transferred $221 million to the Palestinians as one of his last acts in office. n its waning hours, the Obama administration transferred $221 million to the Palestinian Authority (PA) that had been blocked by Republican members of Congress.
According to a State Department official and several congressional aides, former President Barack Obama's departing administration formally notified Congress of the move on the morning of Jan. 20, just hours before President Donald Trump's inauguration, the Associated Press reported.
While Congress initially approved the funding for the Palestinians for 2015 and 2016, Republicans have increasingly called for blocking or canceling funding to the Palestinian Authority, not only because of unilateral diplomatic moves toward statehood, but also because of increasing evidence that funds are used to incite violence and provide financial rewards to terrorists.

"The easiest way to sum it up is that Congress had been looking at various behaviors from Palestine -- unilateral attempts at statehood, corruption, incitement of violence, and paying salaries to people in jail for terrorism -- and that's why the hold has been there," Dr. Jonathan Schanzer of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies told Business Insider.

'Social Justice' Incompatible With End-Times Focus?
Millennial Christians are shifting from their parents' theological emphasis on Biblical Prophecy to a focus on issues of social justice.

Many young evangelicals in the millennial generation are shifting from their parents' theological emphasis on biblical prophecy to a focus on issues of social justice in this world, such as combating homelessness, economic inequality, racism and violence, the website Religion & Politics reports.
Michael Onifer, director of the Bethlehem Project and author of the book "God, Israel, and You: The Scandalous Story of a Faithful God," said the trend has positive implications.

No 'Safe Spaces' for Persecuted Christians
Christians around the world face discrimination from many sources, not just ISIS and other Islamic radicals.
In America, increasing numbers of people in our colleges and in the media are worried about various "micro-aggressions" and "insensitivities."
So those who find themselves so offended by the words of others can repair to a designated "safe space," where they can work out their distress with hugs and perhaps coloring books.
They probably never heard that saying about sticks and stones.
Meanwhile, these delicate flowers are missing out on the biggest story of injustice in the world.

Political Correctness Is Killing College: Emotions or Education?
The snowflake generation has a new demand of the education system - rewrite history to suit their feelings.
Fragile freshmen took to the streets following the presidential election. But at many schools, the politically-correct are upset about more than who's moving into the White House.
They're demanding professors rewrite history itself to suit their feelings.
Take the University of Pennsylvania, where NBC reports that students removed a portrait of William Shakespeare and replaced it with a photo of Audre Lorde, a "self-described black lesbian, mother, warrior, poet."
They did so to affirm "their commitment to a more inclusive mission for the English department."
Evidently this mission doesn't include the single most important figure in the formation of the modern English language.

Trump Fires Up Europe's Anti-Establishment Movement
Anti-establishment parties in Europe are inspired by Trump to promote "patriotic spring" to topple the European Union
Inspired by the inauguration of U.S. President Donald J. Trump, the leaders of Europe's main anti-establishment parties have held a pan-European rally aimed at coordinating a political strategy to mobilize potentially millions of disillusioned voters in upcoming elections in Germany, the Netherlands and France.
Appearing together in public for the first time, Marine Le Pen, leader of the French National Front, Frauke Petry, leader of the Alternative for Germany (AfD), Geert Wilders, leader of the Dutch Party for Freedom (PVV), Matteo Salvini, leader of Italy's Northern League and Harald Vilimsky of Austria's Freedom Party gathered on January 21 at a rally in Koblenz, Germany, where they called on European voters to participate in a "patriotic spring" to topple the European Union, reassert national sovereignty and secure national borders.

Demographics And Faith - A Very Different America Is On The Horizon
Barack Obama famously said that "we are no longer just a Christian nation", and after the last eight years that is now more true than ever.
In 2006, Barack Obama famously said that "we are no longer just a Christian nation", and after the last eight years that is now more true than ever.

The Pew Research Center has just released a major report entitled "How America Changed During Barack Obama's Presidency", and what struck me the most about the report was the fact that it showed that the United States became a lot less Christian while Obama was in the White House.

Of course this trend did not begin under Obama, but it seems to have accelerated during his presidency.

In particular, the percentage of Americans that have no religion at all is really growing rapidly. According to the report, "nones" now make up nearly a fourth of our entire population...

When it comes to the nation's religious identity, the biggest trend during Obama's presidency is the rise of those who claim no religion at all.

Those who self-identify as atheists or agnostics, as well as those who say their religion is "nothing in particular," now make up nearly a quarter of the U.S. adult population, up from 16% in 2007.

Christians, meanwhile, have fallen from 78% to 71% of the U.S. adult population, owing mainly to modest declines in the share of adults who identify with mainline Protestantism and Catholicism.

The share of Americans identifying with evangelical Protestantism, historically black Protestant denominations and other smaller Christian groups, by contrast, have remained fairly stable.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/planttreejan182017a.jpg
And these numbers don't just reflect a growing dissatisfaction with organized religion. The truth is that Americans are becoming less "spiritual" overall.
Compared with 2007, fewer Americans believe in God, fewer Americans consider religion "to be very important in their lives", fewer Americans pray daily, and fewer Americans attend religious services.
These trends are evident in all age groups, but the biggest shift is with Millennials. According to the report, 11 percent of the Silent Generation are "nones", 17 percent of the Baby Boomers are "nones", 23 percent of those in Generation X are "nones", but an astounding 35 percent of all Millennials are "nones".
As the older generations die off, America is changing, and not for the better.

Pew: Divide In America Deeper Than Ever Before
Americans see their nation separated by a wide gap, with "little optimism that the country's political divisions will subside any time soon".
Bob Unruh
Posted with permission from WND
Americans see their nation's Democratic and Republican parties separated by a wide gap, with "little optimism that the country's political divisions will subside any time soon," according to a new Pew Research poll.

The results come from a survey of the opinions of 1,502 adults on Jan. 4-9.

"Fully 86 percent describe the country as more politically divided today than in the past, while just 12 percent say the country is no more divided," Pew reported.

Interestingly, only about 46 percent said that when Barack Obama became president in 2009, but the numbers started rocketing up the scale almost immediately.

"The current mood stands in stark contrast to January 2009, before Barack Obama took office. At that time, just 46 percent said the nation was more politically divided. But a few months into Obama's first term, the share saying the country was more divided politically had risen to 61 percent."

Pew Research said only 24 percent of Americans now expect the divisions to lessen over the coming years.

"In the near term, the public does not think the new Congress and administration will usher in a new era of political comity in Washington: By 61 percent to 29 percent, more expect Republicans and Democrats to bicker and oppose each other more than usual in the coming year than to work together more. Over the past few decades, the only times the public expected more cooperation than conflict in the year ahead were in January 2009 and in early 2002, in the wake of the Sept. 11th terrorist attacks," the report said.

Nick Adams' book, "The American Boomerang: How The World's Greatest Turnaround Nation Will Do It Again," is endorsed by the likes of Dr. Ben Carson, Glenn Beck, Dick Morris, Gov. Mike Huckabee and Dennis Prager

"When asked a more general question about the year ahead, public views are mixed: 49 percent think 2017 will be a better year than 2016, while 42 percent think it will be worse. Expectations for 2017 are about as negative as for any year over the last decade. Compared with a year ago, optimism among Republicans has surged, while views among Democrats have plummeted. Fully 83 percent of Republicans and Republican leaners expect 2017 to be better than 2016; a year ago, 44 percent expected a better year in 2016 than 2015. By contrast, just 24 percent of Democrats and Democratic leaners expect a better year in 2017 (65 percent thought 2016 would be better than 2015)."

The report said the election of Donald Trump has benefited the Republican Party.

"While the 2016 elections have done little to brighten the public's overall outlook or raise expectations for partisan cooperation, the Republican Party has seen its standing improve in the wake of Trump's presidential win and the GOP maintaining control of Congress."

While majorities in both major parties say it's too early to say how the Trump presidency will unfold, the stark separation was clear, as 42 percent of Republicans say Trump will be successful while just 3 percent of Democrats say so.

"By contrast, 37 percent of Democrats and Democratic leaners say he will be unsuccessful, but just 4 percent of Republicans say the same," the report said.

The assessment found, to no surprise, conservatives are more optimistic about Trump's tenure than liberals. And the GOP's image has improved.

"For the first time since 2011, about as many have a positive as negative impression of the Republican Party: 47 percent now hold a favorable view of the GOP, compared with 49 percent who have an unfavorable view. The share who views the Republican Party favorably is up 7 percentage points since October and is 14 points higher than it was in April of 2016," the report said.

"Ratings of the Democratic Party remain somewhat more positive than those of the Republican Party

Germany's New Propaganda Bureau - Big Brother is Watching YOU!
Germany risks creating it's own State Propaganda Bureau as it restricts free speech and combats fake news.
Officials in Germany's Interior Ministry are urging Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière to establish a "Defense Center against Disinformation" (Ab­wehr­zen­trum ge­gen Des­in­for­ma­ti­on) to combat what they call "political disinformation," a euphemism for "fake news."

"The acceptance of a post-truth age would amount to political capitulation," the officials told Maizière in a memo, which also disclosed that the bureaucrats at the Interior Ministry are eager to see "authentic political communication" remain "defining for the 21st century."

One wonders whether by "authentic political communication," the officials of the Interior Ministry are referring to the way German authorities scrambled to cover up the mass sexual attacks on women on New Year's Eve a year ago in Cologne?

At the time, German police first claimed, surreally, on the morning of January 1, 2016, that the situation on New Year's Eve had been "relaxed." Cologne Police Chief Wolfgang Albers later dryly admitted, "This initial statement was incorrect."
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/planttreejan182017a.jpg
Alternatively, perhaps they are referring to the decision of Germany's public broadcaster, ZDF, not to report on the attacks until four days after they had occurred?
Even a former government official, Hans-Peter Friedrich, Chancellor Angela Merkel's Interior Minister from 2011 to 2013, accused the media at the time of imposing a "news blackout" and operating a "code of silence" over negative news about immigrants. How is that for "authentic political communication"?
"Considering the upcoming federal elections we must act very fast," the officials urged in the memo, citing the need to combat "fake news."
In other words, the Interior Ministry's bureaucrats fear that Chancellor Angela Merkel will lose the elections in September 2017, and are willing to do whatever it takes to prevent that scenario, even if it means using (even more) federal authority to crack down on free speech by inventing an official state propaganda bureau. The current debate on "fake news" is a convenient excuse.

10 'Humiliating' Minutes At An Israeli Checkpoint
International news media regularly accuses Israel of unfairly restricting Palestinians at checkpoints. Let's take a closer look.
Remember John Howard Griffin's 1961 book "Black Like Me," about a white journalist who posed as an African-American in order to experience what life was like for blacks in the South? An American journalist recently undertook a Palestinian version of that experiment.

Hearing complaints about Israeli checkpoints that supposedly restrict the movement of Arabs in Judea and Samaria, filmmaker Ami Horowitz of Fox News decided to see for himself.

He hired a Palestinian driver and, traveling in a car with Palestinian license plates, they drove "throughout the West Bank." How often did Israeli troops interrupt their journey? "We were never stopped," Horowitz reported.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/planttreejan182017a.jpg


Next he decided to see what it's like for Palestinians crossing at the checkpoints that separate Israel from Palestinian Authority-controlled areas.

One was the Kalandia checkpoint. It's the last defense line for Jerusalem--the final point at which Israeli soldiers can check to make sure that Palestinians are not smuggling bombs, guns or knives into Israel's capital. One would expect there to be long lines and complicated searches that would make the lives of Palestinian travelers difficult. But that wasn't the case at all.

Horowitz asked three different Palestinians at the Kalandia checkpoint how long it takes them to get through on a typical day. All three said, "10 minutes." One, in fact, told Horowitz that the time "the soldier checks my ID or my work permit is just one minute."

The allegation that Palestinians are unfairly restricted by the checkpoints is circulated regularly by the United Nations, much of the international news media and J Street types.

It is an accusation that has been embraced even by the U.S. State Department. Secretary of State John Kerry, in his infamous Dec. 28 speech, declared that the Palestinians in the disputed territories "are restricted in their daily movements by a web of checkpoints and unable to travel into or out of the West Bank without a permit from the Israelis."

Yet you could say the exact same thing about Americans. We are restricted by security checkpoints in every airport, every courthouse and countless office buildings throughout the country.

We have to empty our pockets, take off our coats, turn our laptops on and off, sometimes remove our shoes, throw out our bottles of water, and submit to body scans and searches, among other things. And we can't travel across America's border without a permit--known as a passport--from the U.S. government.

How many of those awful security checkpoints does the Israeli military actually maintain? Look at the website of the extreme left-wing group "B'Tselem," a leading critic of Israel. It states that the military "currently operates 27 permanent staffed checkpoints in the West Bank."
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/DTF_Course.jpg
Twenty-seven--in a region of more than 2,000 square miles. And 26 of the 27 are situated at the border between Israel and the disputed territories. What sovereign country does not have checkpoints at its border?
According to B'Tselem, the Israeli military also operates 16 "temporarily manned checkpoints." They "are generally open for Palestinians to cross without being checked." Israeli security forces are present only "sometimes." I would say they hardly even qualify as "checkpoints."
Every year, there are hundreds of attempts by Palestinians to smuggle weapons into Israel. The last year for which I could find that statistic was 2012, when there were 475 such smuggling attempts.
So: a 10-minute delay for Palestinians versus 475 terrorist attacks against Israel. Is that a justified trade-off? You decide.

Bikers For Trump vs. Anarchists - Stage Is Set For Confrontation At Inauguration
A potentially ugly confrontation between radical leftist protesters and law enforcement authorities and Trump supporters appears to be looming.
The stage is set for a potentially very ugly confrontation between radical leftist protesters on one side and law enforcement authorities and Trump supporters on the other side.  
It is being estimated that hundreds of thousands of supporters will be arriving in D.C. to celebrate the inauguration of Donald Trump, but it is also being estimated that hundreds of thousands of people will be coming to D.C. to specifically protest the inauguration of Trump.  
These protesters plan to set up blockades, disrupt inaugural balls and generally cause as much chaos as they possibly can.  In fact, a spokesperson for #DisruptJ20 says that the goal of his organization is for Trump to be inaugurated "amid complete chaos"...
"We would like the headline the next day to be Donald Trump inaugurated amid complete chaos, not Donald Trump, inaugurated amid applause," said Legba Carrefour, who is an organizer with #DisruptJ20.

The "Peace Conference": An Outright Admission of Failure
The US has provided $1.4 billion in support over the last 20 years to the Palestinians..who have yet to create infrastructure for a viable economy.
The Paris Peace Conference was not as bad as it could have been.

The British and Russian governments sent low level delegations. Some of the wording in UN Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 2334 disappeared, and the assembled agreed to resolve "all permanent status issues on the basis of United Nations Security Council resolutions 242 (1967) and 338 (1973), and also recalled relevant Security Council resolutions."
Resolution 242 is the benchmark for Israel's security requirements and its right to legitimacy and permanence in the region. And "recalling" is somewhat different from "planning to enforce."
Most interesting, however, is a three-part section toward the end. The mostly-European plus American gathering:
Expressed their readiness to exert necessary efforts... ensuring the sustainability of a negotiated peace agreement, in particular in the areas of political and economic incentives, the consolidation of Palestinian state capacities, and civil society dialogue. Those could include:

Will Trump Bow To Arab Intimidation On Jerusalem?
Israel
Israel Indivisible: The Case For The Ancient Homeland DVD
Does the modern State of Israel have a right to the land on which it exists? Examine the historical, archaeological, legal and Biblical evidence for the ancient and modern state of Israel.
President-elect Donald Trump has promised to move the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Predictably, cataclysmic warnings are coming from the Palestinians, Arab leaders and State Department Arabists.
For nearly 60 years, American presidents have wilted in the face of these threats. Will Trump be different? As someone who has up until now refused to back down from bullies, or to feel obligated to conventional wisdom, Trump -- one hopes -- will fulfill his promise.
The US Embassy is sovereign American territory. Since when do we let foreigners dictate where American sovereignty begins and ends?
Jerusalem is the only place over which blackmailers have succeeded in limiting our independence. Out of the 190 nations with which America has diplomatic relations, Israel is the only one whose capital is not recognized by the US government.

Surveys Show Global Trust At All-Time Low As Central Governments Lose Control
Distrust of central governments and institutions have snowballed into an uprising of nationalism and populism.
Multiple studies are finding that trust in central governments and their institutions (including the establishment media) is at an all-time low around the world.
Regarding a recently released global survey titled Leader's Report: The Future of Government Communications, the Guardian reports:
Weakened and distrusted central governments around the world have been incapable of responding to the way the internet and social media have empowered populist but previously fringe groups, a unique worldwide survey of government communication chiefs has found.
The survey spanning 40 countries is the first international review to reveal how deeply governments feel they are losing control and authority over communications.

Distrust of central governments and institutions of authority plus Internet as an alternative means of gathering information have combined and snowballed into an uprising of nationalism and populism, although the people attempting to run this dog and pony show like to mush those two concepts together with radicalization and extremism... because if you don't trust your loving central government, you obviously must be a radical extremist.
"When people feel ignored, unheard and unrepresented they turn to alternative sources of information. If governments do not communicate with citizens properly, citizens will go somewhere elsewhere for information," the report says.
Another way of reading this? "Waaaah! Our propaganda is no longer working!"
The report also says people are "more apprehensive than perhaps at any time since the end of the cold war". Really? Could that be because they are finally are more informed?

‘Heretic’ Prosperity Preacher Paula White Issues Defense After Selection for Trump Inauguration Criticized Jan 07, 2017 05:59 pm
Prosperity preacher Paula White, who was invited by President-elect Donald Trump to deliver the invocation at his inauguration ceremony on Jan. 20, has released a statement in defense of herself as some Christians have expressed concern over Trump's selection of the female preacher for the event. "I have been called a heretic, an apostate, an adulterer, a...
and an addict,” she wrote this week. “It has been falsely reported that I once filed for bankruptcy and—my personal favorite—that I deny the Trinity!”
White said that she had been hesitating “to even address such patently false accusations about my personal life and my beliefs so as to not dignify them with a response.” However, since she believed the objections to her appearance pose “a potential distraction to an otherwise celebratory and historic time in our country,” she wanted to present her side of the story.

In the footage, the black-clad male toddler, who appears to be in an abandoned playground, enters the pit filled with broken balls where he finds a man tied to the fence. An adult ISIS member hands him a small gun, which the child then holds up to take aim, scrunching his face.

Appeals Court Rules in Favor of California Christian Arrested for Reading Bible Aloud Outside DMV
By Heather Clark on January 13, 201713 Comments

PASADENA, Calif. — A federal appeals court has ruled in favor of a Christian who was arrested six years ago for reading the Bible aloud outside of a California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) office.
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a lower court decision on Wednesday that granted summary judgment to the police officer who arrested Mark Mackey for his Bible-reading. Mackey had civilly sued the officer following his arrest, a legal challenge that was then placed on hold until after he was exonerated in criminal court.

70 Nations Gathered In Paris Unanimously Call For Creation Of Palestinian State
The global community has reaffirmed their commitment to a Palestinian state, without further action against Israel...for now.
On Sunday, the 70 nations that gathered in Paris for a conference on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict unanimously agreed to call for the creation of a Palestinian state.
The joint declaration that was issued at the conclusion of the conference also endorsed UN Security Council Resolution 2334 which was adopted on December 23rd and the six principles that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry laid out in his 71 minute speech on December 28th.
The good news is that this conference did not immediately recognize a Palestinian state, nor does it appear that additional action will be taken at the UN Security Council before Donald Trump is inaugurated on Friday.
It had been feared that this conference may attempt to impose some sort of a solution on the Israelis and the Palestinians, but that didn't come to pass. Instead, the conference participants agreed to work toward "a negotiated solution with two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security".
So the global community has clearly reaffirmed their commitment to a Palestinian state, but the outcome of this conference was not nearly as bad for Israel as many had been anticipating.

Welcome To One of The Most Pivotal Weeks In Modern American History
Some believe peace and prosperity is just a few days away, but others are using terms such as "civil unrest" and "civil war".
Many are anticipating that a wonderful new era of peace and prosperity is just a few days away, but others are using terms such as "civil unrest" and "civil war" for what they believe is about to happen in America.
Without a doubt, Donald Trump is one of the most electrifying politicians in modern American history, but he is also one of the most polarizing.
So will the next four years bring us together as a nation, or will anger, frustration, strife and discord tear us much farther apart?
It is being projected that extremely large crowds of supporters will attend Donald Trump's inauguration on January 20th, but the mainstream media is also reporting that "hundreds of thousands of protesters" are on their way to Washington.
Many on the far left are hoping to turn Trump's inauguration into one of the biggest riots in U.S. history, but thousands of law enforcement personnel are going to do their very best to prevent that from happening.

Christian clergy joined other religious leaders in "blessing" the opening of a new abortion mega-clinic in Washington, DC.
Christian clergy joined other religious leaders in celebrating and "blessing" the opening of a new abortion mega-clinic in Washington, DC, calling it "sacred work".
"In almost every message to our staff, I talk about our doing sacred work," Dr. Laura Meyers, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, told news outlets. "This confirms the sacredness of the work we do."
The event was organized by the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice and Christine and Dennis Wiley, who lead Covenant Baptist United Church of Christ in Washington, D.C.

Christine Wiley pointed out that while Conservative Christians dominate much of the media, she was offering a "progressive voice" to counter the orthodox Christian understanding of abortion as the sin ofmurder, saying this is not her brand of Christianity and "it is far from representing the true tenants of the person of Jesus Christ".

3D Printed Drone Swarms Could Give U.S. Army On-Demand Eyes In The Sky
A swarm of robots that can self-replicate and make decisions about surveillance and targeting without human input.
3D-printed military drones have been explored for several years, with some successes reported. In May of 2013, Robo Raven was announced which incorporated 3D-printed components to produce independently flapping wings.
This development was followed shortly after by the Department of Defense funding a project at the University of Virginia for what would become the first fully 3D-printed military-grade drone, called The Razor.
At the time of the announcement, it was expected that a full drone could be produced in approximately 30 hours at a price per unit of around $800.

Now, several years later, the military is seeking to combine advancements in 3D printing with a trend toward drone miniaturization into a project that will offer the capability for soldiers in the battlespace to produce their own quadcopter drones within 24 hours.

The Nations Plot In Vain - Leaked Draft Of Paris Peace Conference Revealed
A draft of the summary statement that will be released at the conclusion of the 70 nation conference in Paris on Sunday has been leaked.
As you will see below, this communique is going to call for the division of the land of Israel, for the establishment of a Palestinian state, for the 1967 borders to serve as the basis for final negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians, and for the condemnation of any officials that refuse to support a two state solution.

Activists Want To Turn Inauguration Into One Of The Biggest Riots In US History
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/protestjan122017.jpg
News Image BY MICHAEL SNYDER/ECONOMIC COLLAPSE BLOG JANUARY 12, 2017
Radical leftists are planning to make January 20th the most chaotic Inauguration Day in American history. Their stated goal is to "disrupt" the Inauguration festivities as much as possible, and they are planning a wide range of "actions" to achieve that stated goal.

Some of the more moderate groups are using terms such as "civil resistance" and "civil disobedience", but others are openly talking about "blockades", jumping barricades, throwing projectiles and "citywide paralysis".

My hope is that all of their efforts will turn out to be a big flop, but it is important to understand that these groups are well funded, highly organized and extremely motivated.

The election of Donald Trump has been perhaps the single most galvanizing moment for the radical left in modern American history, and they are working very hard to turn January 20th into a major political statement.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/DTF_Course.jpg


In fact, just recently one activist group took out a full page ad in the New York Times...

Thousands of activists, journalists, scientists, entertainers, and other prominent voices took out a full-page call to action in the New York Times on Wednesday making clear their rejection of President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence with the simple message: "No!"

"Stop the Trump/Pence regime before it starts! In the name of humanity we refuse to accept a fascist America!" the ad states, followed by a list of signatories that includes scholar Cornel West; author Alice Walker; Chase Iron Eyes of the Standing Rock Sioux; educator Bill Ayers; poet Saul Williams; CNN's Marc Lamont Hill; Carl Dix of the Communist Party USA; and numerous others.

The ad pointed people to refusefascism.org, and it asserted that Trump must be stopped whether he was legitimately elected or not...

Trump promises to inflict repression and suffering on people in this country, to deport millions, to increase violence up to the use of nuclear weapons on people across the globe, and to inflict catastrophes upon the planet itself.

He has assembled a cabinet of Christian fundamentalist fanatics, war mongers, racists, science deniers. NO! His regime must not be allowed to consolidate. We REFUSE to accept a Fascist America!

If you go to refusefascism.org, you will discover that the protests that they are organizing in Washington D.C. will begin on January 14th. They say that they want to "stop the Trump-Pence regime before it starts", and they hope to have protests going "every day and every night" without interruption through at least January 20th.

Another group that plans to kick things off on January 14th is DisruptJ20. Of course that is short for "Disrupt January 20th". If you go to their official website, you will find a long slate of events that have already been scheduled.

According to Legba Carrefour, a spokesperson for DisruptJ20, one of the goals of the group is to block major transportation routes into and throughout our nation's capital. And he is not shy about the fact that they literally want to "shut down the Inauguration"...

"We are planning to shut down the inauguration, that's the short of it," he says. "We're pretty literal about that, we are trying to create citywide paralysis on a level that I don't think has been seen in D.C. before. We're trying to shut down pretty much every ingress into the city as well as every checkpoint around the actual inauguration parade route."

If Carrefour and his fellow conspirators are able to actually accomplish that, it truly would be unprecedented.

And while DisruptJ20 is not publicly advocating violence, they are not exactly discouraging it either...

Carrefour says DisruptJ20 has no publicly announced plans to jump barricades along the inauguration parade route or throw projectiles at the new president, but that autonomous direct actions are encouraged.

"I can't comment on specific stuff we're doing like that, mostly because that would be illegal. But, yeah, it will get pretty crazy, I expect," he says. "'Have fun!' I say."

After the rioting that we have seen in Baltimore, Ferguson, Charlotte and many other communities around the nation in recent years, I hope that authorities are taking these threats quite seriously.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/TFP_freedvd.jpg


Once Donald Trump won the election, many conservatives seemed to think that the war was won. But the truth of the matter is that many on the left were completely blindsided by Trump's surprise victory, and now that they are fully awake they are gearing up for battle like never before.

And these protests are not going to end on January 20th. In fact, abortion advocates are hoping to get close to a million women into Washington D.C. on the day following the Inauguration to protest for abortion rights.

Filmmaker Michael Moore is hoping that this march will be the beginning of "100 days of resistance" against Trump's presidency...

Filmmaker and liberal icon Michael Moore has announced his plans to attend the Women's March on Washington to protest Donald Trump's inauguration later this month and has called for sore loser liberals to go further -- by staging protests acts of resistance through the first 100 days of Trump's presidency.

In an appearance, this weekend on MSNBC's The Last Word, the 62-year-old Trumpland and Fahrenheit 9/11 director made a "call to arms" to those opposed to Trump's presidency to join the Women's March on Washington scheduled for January 21, the day after the presidential inauguration.

"It's important that everybody go there," Moore told MSNBC's Ari Melber.

Of course it is easy to imagine how all of this could spiral wildly out of control. If Trump cracks down on these protests really hard in an attempt to restore law and order, that could end up sparking a dramatic backlash against his "police state tactics".

And if the protests become even bigger and more violent, Trump could respond by cracking down even more harshly.

Let us hope for some really cold weather in D.C. at the end of January so that as many troublemakers as possible get discouraged and stay home.

Violent protests, blockades and riots aren't going to solve anything, and they could easily open fresh wounds in a nation that is becoming more divided with each passing day.

Widow Of Truck-Ramming Terrorist To Receive Lifetime Support From PA Government
When is a cold-blooded murderer hailed as an international hero? When he's a radical Islamic terrorist who slaughters Jews.
The widow of the terrorist who committed Sunday's truck-ramming attack at the Haas Promenade in Jerusalem, killing four Israeli soldiers and wounding another 15, will receive a lifetime monthly stipend as a reward for her husband's "martyrdom for Allah," a prominent research organization reported on Wednesday.
According to Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), Fadi al-Qanbar's widow, a resident of the Jabel Mukaber neighborhood in east Jerusalem, will receive a total of NIS 2,900 (approximately $760) each month, in accordance with Palestinian Authority law.
PMW broke down the sum, based on the statute, as follows:
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/DTF_Course.jpg
All families of "martyrs" receive a base monthly payment of NIS 1,400 ($365). Widows of "martyrs" receive an additional NIS 400 ($104). NIS 200 ($52) is paid for each of their children; al-Qanbar has four. And Jerusalem residents, such as al-Qanbar, receive an extra NIS 300 ($78).

The Retail Apocalypse Continues: Sears And Macy's To Close Hundreds Of Stores
It has only been two weeks since Christmas, and already we are witnessing a stunning bloodbath of store closings.
Macy's shocked the retail industry by announcing that they will be closing about 100 stores. The downward spiral of Sears hit another landmark when it was announced that another 150 Sears and Kmart stores would be shutting down.
And we have just learned that The Limited is immediately closing all stores nationwide. If the U.S. economy is doing just fine, then why are we experiencing such a retail apocalypse?
All over America, vast shopping malls that were once buzzing with eager consumers now resemble mausoleums. We have never seen anything quite like this in our entire history, and nobody is quite sure what is going to happen next.
Not too long ago I walked into a Macy's, and it was eerily quiet. I stumbled around the men's department looking for something to buy, but I was deeply disappointed in what was being offered.
After some time had passed, an employee finally noticed me and came over to help, but they didn't have anything that I was looking for.

Genetic Engineering Set to Override Natural Selection - What Could Go Wrong?
Fears that genetic engineering could subvert natural selection have been mostly groundless--until now.
A technique known as a "gene drive" uses molecular mechanisms to increase the inheritance of an engineered trait far above normal, all but ensuring that the offspring carry the new trait, whether harmful or not.
The highly reported CRISPR-Cas9 technology, which was introduced in 2013 and proliferated in 2016, now allows even amateurs to experiment and for low cost.
The combination of using gene drive techniques with CRISPR-Cas9 could be the release of newly created species that would, within just a dozen generations, completely push out all natural versions.
How it Works
Sexual reproduction owes its success to the system by which genetic traits are encoded on the alleles of both parents. In theory, both alleles would have an equal chance of being passed on and some would present greater survival chances to offspring.
Natural gene drives are molecular mechanisms that give one allele a greater chance of being transmitted (above 50%), but in the long term healthy traits are favored.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/DTF_Course.jpg
Artificial gene drives circumvent this natural process by boosting transmission rate for a particular trait far above normal, even if it is detrimental to the organism.
In simple terms, an endonuclease gene drive operates on the molecular level by cutting chromosomes that do not encode the drive gene at a specific site in the genetic code and inducing the cell to repair the damage by copying the desired sequence into the damaged area.

Your Tax Dollars At Work - Funding Palestinian Terror
Palestinians took to the streets and social media this week to celebrate the truck-ramming attack in Jerusalem in which 4 IDF soldiers were killed.
The street celebrations included the handing out of sweets while Palestinian social media promoted a post of Fadi al-Qanbar's (the terrorist who drove the truck into the soldiers) sister displaying a big smile and commenting "thank Allah for his saintly death" after news that her brother had died in the act of killing Israeli soldiers.
This was followed by another celebration in which the terrorist's mother was honored at a community celebration who proceed to throw flowers to the cheering audience.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/DTF_Course.jpg
In attendance of this celebration was the PA Prime Minister. Had any other government official in the world been present for such celebration their would be world outcry.
However the double standard towards PA leadership has been a fact of life for decades.
Sadly, this same government is being promoted as a partner for peace with Israel and will soon be granted a UN directive outlining a future Palestinian State.
For too long the US has turned a blind eye to Palestinian leadership corruption and support for terrorism, including social incitement, naming streets and parks after terrorists and promoting hatred of Israel in it's school textbooks.

The Infinite Value of Every Life: From A Chinese Jail To Carnegie Hall
When we save just one life from abortion, we're saving the future. I'll explain with a beautiful story.
A thirteen-year-old girl named Anni is seated at the piano on the stage at Carnegie Hall. She is wearing a neat white dress, and she's playing brilliantly. The crowd applauds enthusiastically.
That was one month ago. Three years ago, it was a different story. Then, Anni was huddled in a jail cell in China. She was kept there overnight without food, water, or even access to a toilet.
The Chinese government had locked her up as retaliation for her father's activities protesting China's repressive policies.
The story of how Anni got from there to Carnegie Hall is a miracle--one that teaches us how much God values every human life.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/DTF_Course.jpg
Anni's father, Zhang Lin, is a nuclear physicist who was himself sent to prison. To get his daughter out of China, he contacted my friend Reggie Littlejohn, founder of Women's Rights Without Frontiers.
Reggie, along with U.S. Representative Chris Smith and others, succeeded in bringing Anni and her sister to the U.S. Praise God. Reggie and her husband took the girls in, to raise as their own daughters.

Christian Clergy Welcomes Islam Into The Church, Then Bows To It
In the US, more than 50 churches, including the Washington National Cathedral, hold Koran readings. Is there any reading of Christian liturgy in mosques? In this new interfaith "correctness", only Islam gains. Christians have everything to lose.
There is a disturbing and growing trend in Italy and Europe.
For the first time in more than 700 years, Islamic songs resonated in Florence's Cathedral, the Church Santa Maria del Fiore.
Under the famous Dome of Brunelleschi, Islamic melodies accompanied Christian ones. The "interfaith initiative" was promoted a week after the barbaric massacre by Islamist terrorists in Paris at the magazine Charlie Hebdo, and included "Koran is Justice" and other such "hymns".
A priest in the south of Italy then enraged parishioners by dressing the Virgin Mary in a Muslim burqa for his church's Christmas nativity scene.
The pastor of the parish of Saints Joachim and Anne in Potenza, Father Franco Corbo, said that he had the special crèche constructed "in the name of dialogue among religions".
These interfaith initiatives are based on the gradual elimination of the Western-Christian heritage in favor of Islam.

No Women Allowed - Parts Of France Now Resemble Saudi Arabia
Women have literally disappeared from cafés and bars in certain predominantly Muslim suburbs in France, according to recently aired undercover footage from the France 2 television channel.
Women have literally disappeared from cafés and bars in certain predominantly Muslim suburbs in France, according to recently aired undercover footage from the France 2 television channel.
The footage featured two women activists, Nadia Remadna and Aziza Sayah, from the women's rights campaign group, La Brigade des Mères (Brigade of Mothers), entering a café in the Paris suburb of Sevran, where they were met with surprise and hostility from the all-male customers.
One told them: "It is best to wait outside. There are men in here... In this café, there is no diversity."
Another customer told them: "In this café, there is no mixing. We are in Sevran, not Paris. Here there is a different mentality. It is like back home."
In a suburb of Lyon, France 2 TV journalist Caroline Sinz spoke to a young woman who said that she is quite simply afraid to go out, and wears baggy clothes and no makeup to avoid being targeted by the Muslim men in the neighborhood.

Five Potential Major Developments In US-Israel Relations In 2017
The new year and new administration bring intrigue and unanswered questions on a number of major storylines that could shape the complexion of American-Israeli ties both this year and for years to come. Here are five potential major developments to watch for this year.
The new year and new administration bring intrigue and unanswered questions on a number of major storylines that could shape the complexion of American-Israeli ties both this year and for years to come. JNS.org presents five potential major developments to watch for this year.
Will the U.S. Embassy in Israel move to Jerusalem?
Trump and his ambassador-designate to Israel, David Friedman, have pledged to move America's Israeli embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Will they follow through?
Typically, any country's foreign embassies are located in capital cities. Israel set up its capital in Jerusalem in 1948, but many nations, including the U.S., have established their embassies in Tel Aviv as part of a refusal to recognize Israel's annexation of eastern sections of Jerusalem and the unification of the city following the Jewish state's victory in the 1967 Six-Day War.

Algorithm Of Truth - Lie Detection Robot Coming Soon
The machine, Automated Virtual Agent for Truth Assessments in Realtime (AVATAR), is designed as a robot-type kiosk and is now being considered for implementation by the Canadian Border Services Agency. If AVATAR is successful, it is almost certain to be adopted by both employers and law enforcement agencies around the world.
Traditional lie detector machines function based on the premise that the natural anxiety of lying will cause variations in blood pressure, pulse, respiration and skin conductivity. People trained to detect lies, on the other hand, look for micro-expressions that indicate anxiety.
A movement of the eyes, lifting one corner of the mouth, and even a barely perceptible movement of fingers and toes. Now a machine called AVATAR is capable of detecting lies by analyzing a person's facial expressions, voice changes and body language reactions, all with a video camera.
The machine, Automated Virtual Agent for Truth Assessments in Realtime (AVATAR), is designed as a kiosk. Developed in 2012 by the University of Arizona, it has seen significant advances since that time and is now being considered for implementation by the Canadian Border Services Agency.

If AVATAR is successful, it is almost certain to be adopted by both employers and law enforcement agencies around the world.

New Year, Same Issues, Eternal Hope: Looking Forward To 2017
Many people are glad 2016 is behind us, and I understand why. But of course, the issues that made last year a struggle are not behind us. Let me explain.
We talk a lot on BreakPoint about what the French philosopher and theologian Jacques Ellul called the "political illusion"--the idea that our problems are primarily political ones with political solutions. Or that, as Chuck Colson put it so pithily, salvation will arrive on Air Force One.

Israel Prepares For Hezbollah Threat In 2017
A senior Israeli defense official said that the IDF is cautiously optimistic about making it through the coming year without having to conduct major combat operations, unless a preemptive strike against the Lebanon-based Shiite terrorist organization Hezbollah becomes necessary.
Defense News reported on Monday.
"The probability for war in 2017, generally speaking, is low," the official said, but with a caveat: "Due to the dynamic of escalation, we might find ourselves in one."
The official told Defense News that Israel needs to calculate its moves very carefully, as it is facing threats from Hezbollah in the north, Hamas in the south and the Palestinian Authority in the center, as well as from far beyond its borders -- the regime in Tehran.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/DTF_Course.jpg
The official explained that each of these fronts is volatile, and require close attention.

Financial Lockdown - What Will You Do When The ATMs Go Dry?
The big theme for 2017 will be Cash. Not a pro-deflationary "time to own cash" theme, but a "let's ban it as quickly as possible" theme. Which is why 2017 will shape up to be the year of the Global Cash Bans.
Is it any coincidence that the financial crises, and the subsequent restrictions, follow the general chaos and upheaval that surround hotspots and conflict zones?
The European Union has once again been confronted with a major terror attack, and is coming down harsh on cash, gold and other valuables as a response. Due to its supposed connection to financing terrorism, cash and gold are being closely monitored and seized as it flows into the EU.
Meanwhile, economic crisis is driving extremely tight cash control measures in Venezuela, India and other parts of the developing world. In the name of combating illicit financial activities, these countries have banned nearly all of the currency, while placing a very short leash around their already impoverished populations.
The United States, too, is under a great deal of economic pressure. Enormous mounts of debt, rising interest rates and a number of massive bursting bubbles, could explode into a major crisis. While there are already fairly tight restrictions on transferring, withdrawing or crossing borders with large amounts of cash, even greater restrictions may be coming.

Even now a "blacklist" of international companies that have ties with Israeli companies in Judea, Samaria, East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights are being prepared for the expected boycott coming soon.

The outgoing Obama Administration reportedly orchestrated what even Haaretz called a "hit and run" campaign in UN to denigrate the Jewish State and leave it to a fate where only conflict and hate loom.

10 Previous Times America Faced Major Disaster After Attempting To Divide Israel
Over the past several decades, whenever the U.S. government has taken a major step toward the division of the land of Israel it has resulted in a major disaster hitting the United States.
Because Barack Obama has cursed Israel at the United Nations, America is now under a curse. Friday's stunning betrayal of Israel at the UN Security Council is making headlines all over the planet, but the truth is that what Obama has just done is far more serious than most people would dare to imagine.

Over the past several decades, whenever the U.S. government has taken a major step toward the division of the land of Israel it has resulted in a major disaster hitting the United States.

This keeps happening over and over again, and yet our leaders never seem to learn. And despite the fact that President-elect Donald Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and prominent members of both parties in Congress strongly urged Obama to veto Security Council resolution 2334, he went ahead and let it pass anyway.

Because the United States has veto power on the UN Security Council, nothing can get passed without our support. And it has been the policy of the U.S. government for decades to veto all anti-Israel resolutions that come before the Security Council.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/rootsquare1.jpg


But this time around, it appears that the Obama administration was working very hard behind the scenes to get this resolution pushed through the Security Council before the end of Obama's term. At least that is what Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is claiming...

"From the information that we have, we have no doubt that the Obama administration initiated it, stood behind it, coordinated on the wording and demanded that it be passed," Netanyahu said in a statement. "This is, of course, in complete contradiction of the traditional American policy that was committed to not trying to dictate terms for a permanent agreement, like any issue related to them in the Security Council, and, of course, the explicit commitment of President Obama himself, in 2011, to refrain from such steps."

I am sure that there will be a tremendous amount of debate about to what extent the U.S. was involved in creating and drafting this resolution, but there is one thing that is exceedingly clear.

The ultimate decision as to whether or not this resolution would be adopted was in the hands of one man. Barack Obama knew very well that he had this power, and in the end he ultimately decided to betray Israel.

And now that our government has cursed Israel at the UN, our entire nation will be cursed as a result.

In the Scriptures we are repeatedly told that God will bless those that bless Israel and will curse those that curse Israel.

When Barack Obama blocked a similar resolution that France wanted to submit for a vote in September 2015, it resulted in America being blessed, and we definitely have been blessed over the past 16 months.

But now that Barack Obama has reversed course and has betrayed Israel, we will most assuredly be cursed. In the days ahead we will see how this plays out, and perhaps we can get some hints about what may happen by reviewing recent history.

There have literally been dozens of instances in recent decades when the U.S. has been hit by some sort of immediate disaster when it has made a move toward the dividing of the land of Israel.

The following are ten of the most prominent examples that stand out to me...

#1 The last time the U.S. government refused to veto an anti-Israel resolution at the UN Security Council was in 1979. On March 22nd, 1979 the Carter administration chose not to veto UN Resolution 446.

Four days after that on March 26th, the Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty was signed in Washington. As a result of that treaty, Israel gave up a tremendous amount of territory. Two days later, on March 28th, the worst nuclear power plant disaster in U.S. history made headlines all over the globe. The following comes from Wikipedia...

The Three Mile Island accident was a partial nuclear meltdown that occurred on March 28, 1979, in reactor number 2 of Three Mile Island Nuclear Generating Station (TMI-2) in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, United States. It was the most significant accident in U.S. commercial nuclear power plant history.[2] The incident was rated a five on the seven-point International Nuclear Event Scale: Accident With Wider Consequences.[3][4]

#2 On October 30th, 1991 President George H. W. Bush opened the Madrid Peace Conference which brought Israelis and Palestinians together to negotiate for the very first time.

In his opening speech, Bush told Israel that "territorial compromise is essential for peace". At the exact same time, "the Perfect Storm" was brewing in the north Atlantic.

This legendary storm traveled 1000 miles the wrong direction and sent 35 foot waves slamming directly into President Bush's home in Kennebunkport, Maine.

#3 On August 23rd, 1992 the Madrid Peace Conference moved to Washington D.C., and the very next day Hurricane Andrew made landfall in Florida causing 30 billion dollars in damage. It was the worst natural disaster up to that time in U.S. history.

#4 On January 16th, 1994 President Clinton met with President Assad of Syria to discuss the possibility of Israel giving up the Golan Heights. Within 24 hours, the devastating Northridge earthquake hit southern California. It was the second worst natural disaster up to that time in U.S. history.

#5 On January 21st, 1998 Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu arrived at the White House but received a very cold reception. In fact, President Clinton and Secretary of State Madeleine Albright actually refused to have lunch with him. That exact same day the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke, sending the Clinton presidency into a tailspin from which it would never recover.

#6 On September 28th, 1998 Secretary of State Madeleine Albright was working on finalizing a plan which would have had Israel give up approximately 13 percent of Judea and Samaria. On that precise day, Hurricane George slammed into the Gulf Coast with wind gusts of up to 175 miles an hour.

#7 On May 3rd, 1999 Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat was supposed to hold a press conference to declare the creation of a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as the capital.

On that precise day, the most powerful tornadoes ever recorded in the U.S. ripped through Oklahoma and Kansas. At one point one of the tornadoes actually had a recorded wind speed of 316 miles an hour.

#8 On April 30th, 2003, "the Road Map to Peace" that had been developed by the so-called "Quartet" was presented to Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon by U.S. Ambassador Daniel Kurtzer.

Over the next seven days, the U.S. was hit by a staggering 412 tornadoes. It was the largest tornado cluster ever recorded up to that time.

#9 In 2005, President George W. Bush (the son of George H. W. Bush) convinced Israel that it was necessary to remove all of the Jewish settlers out of Gaza and turn it over entirely to the Palestinians.

According to the New York Times, the very last of the settlers were evacuated on August 23, 2005. On that precise day, a storm that would be given the name "Katrina" started forming over the Bahamas.

The city of New Orleans still has not fully recovered from the damage that storm caused, and it ranked as the costliest natural disaster in all of U.S. history up to that time.

#10 On May 19th, 2011 Barack Obama told Israel that there must be a return to the pre-1967 borders. Three days later on May 22nd a half-mile wide EF-5 multiple-vortex tornado ripped through Joplin, Missouri. According to Wikipedia, it was "the costliest single tornado in U.S. history."

The UN Security Council resolution that was passed on Friday is the biggest betrayal of Israel in modern history. As I explained in my last article, I believe that America's reprieve is now over and all hell is about to break loose in this country.

When Barack Obama blocked the UN Security Council from dividing the land of Israel in September 2015, according to the Word of God we should have been blessed as a nation as a result, and we were blessed.

But now Barack Obama has cursed Israel by stabbing them in the back at the United Nations, and according to the Word of God we should be cursed as a nation as a result.

And as surely as I am writing this article, we will be cursed

Obama's Abandonment Of Israel Should Surprise Nobody
For the American Jewish community that voted overwhelmingly not once, but twice for President Barack Obama, America's abstention and refusal to use its veto power on an anti-Israel measure at the U.N. was a betrayal of historic proportions.
The United Nations resolution condemning Israeli settlements comes in the wake of two other U.N. resolutions, passed by the UNESCO cultural body in October, that denied the historic and biblical relationship between the Jews and the land of Israel.
The U.N. can pass resolutions, but it can neither change history nor alter reality.

Generation Snowflake: Increasing Percentage Of Young Adults Living With Parents
News Image BY MICHAEL SNYDER/ECONOMIC COLLAPSE BLOG DECEMBER 27, 2016
Share this article:
Have we failed this generation of young adults by not equipping them to be able to handle the harsh realities of the real world?
According to the Wall Street Journal, the percentage of Americans in the 18 to 34-year-old age bracket that are currently living with their parents hasn't been this high in 75 years.
At this point nearly 40 percent of our young adults in that age range are living at home, and many are concerned that this could have some alarming implications for the future of our nation.
In the United States today, more than 60 million people live in multi-generational households, and it is a good thing to have a tight family.
But at some point young adults need to learn how to live their own independent lives, and in millions of cases this independence is being delayed or is never happening at all.
There are many factors involved in this trend. First of all, there is truly a lack of good jobs despite what we are being told about an "economic recovery".

Facebook Fact Checkers - New Arbiters of Truth All Lean Left
Just as "fact checking" by many major media companies has become code for "left-wing spin", Facebook looks poised to continue the trend, but on a truly massive scale.
After an election cycle plagued by widely believed "fake news" stories from both the left and the right, Facebook has announced its plan to employ official 'fact checkers'.
News stories appearing in the Facebook feed for a user will have a button that a user can click to report the news as fake.
The reported new items will then be examined by the third-party fact checkers who will imbed a tag marking the story as disputed and with a link to support the claim.
The idea could be a fine way to improve Facebook as a news platform, but all of the third-party fact checkers Facebook has announced have shown strong left-wing bias.
Just as "fact checking" by many major media companies has become code for "left-wing spin", Facebook looks poised to continue the trend, but on a truly massive scale.

Obama Betrays Israel At The United Nations - Is America's Reprieve Now Over?
Barack Obama actually did it. Despite enormous pressure from the government of Israel, President-elect Donald Trump and members of his own party in Congress, Barack Obama decided to stick a knife in Israel's back at the United Nations.
On Friday, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution that calls for a "two-State solution based on the 1967 lines" and that shockingly states that "the establishment by Israel of settlements in the Palestinian territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, has no legal validity".
This resolution was approved by a vote of 14 to 0, and the U.S. abstained from voting. But essentially the outcome of the vote was going to be determined by Barack Obama.

Culture Wars: Colleges Abandon Open Debate to Create Leftist "Safe Spaces"
Calls for "safe spaces" where students won't be emotionally "triggered" by ideas with which they disagree have multiplied and the number of violent protests, overwhelmingly against conservative speakers, have exploded in the past year.
Classes that previously taught political philosophy, rhetoric, debate and moral philosophy are either closing or finding it difficult to continue under student pressure to censure thinking that doesn't lean left.
The most recent example of leftist student groups issuing demands to mold universities into safe echo chambers is the 64 point list of demands issued to the University of Maryland.

Evangelicals and Assisted Suicide: Playing God Is Always Wrong
If it's right to oppose the killing of human beings at the beginning of life, why do so many evangelicals say it's okay near the end of life?
Evangelical support for the pro-life cause is both well-known and extensive. The Pew Research Center says a full 75 percent are still willing to tell a pollster that "having an abortion is morally wrong."
But there's disturbing news when it comes to evangelicals and another pro-life issue: assisted suicide. According to Lifeway Research, 38 percent of those who profess to be evangelical--nearly four in ten--agree with the following statement: "When a person is facing a painful terminal disease, it is morally acceptable to ask for a physician's aid in taking his or her own life."

Obama Enrages Israel On Way Out The Door - Refuses To Veto U.N. Vote
Israeli officials are furious with President Obama for allowing the U.N. to pass a resolution Friday demanding the Jewish state "immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem."
WASHINGTON – Israeli officials are furious with President Obama for allowing the U.N. to pass a resolution Friday demanding the Jewish state "immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem."
With the U.S. taking the extraordinary move of abstaining, the Security Council unanimously passed the resolution, which also calls for the limiting of the Jewish state to the borders it had before the 1967 war.

Microchiping Fears Force Changes To Bill That Allows Tracking People
Under the guise of public safety, Democratic and Republican law makers have pushed for a law that would allow for the implantation of tracking microchips in minors with autism and senior citizens with dementia.
Following the drowning deaths of 9-year-old Kevin Curtis Wills in 2008 and 14-year-old Avonte Oquendo in 2014, both diagnosed with autism, legislators presented Bill H.R. 4919 that would apply to both children and the elderly.
Introduced by Rep. Christ Smith (R., N.J.) the bill, known as Kevin and Avonte's Law, would have allowed for the Attorney General to implement different tracking methods while grants would be given to law enforcement and non-profits for participating and promoting the program, one of which could be microchip tracking.

An expansion of the Missing Alzheimer's Disease Patient Alert Program already in place, the bill would both authorize $2 million for 5 years and extend the program to children with autism as well as see its name changed to Missing Americans Alert Program.

Depression Epidemic Hits Many Hard This Christmas Season
For many people, the holiday season is the most dreaded time of the year. But does it have to be that way? The holidays can be a real pressure point because they tend to magnify our problems.
If you are a very busy person, it is likely that you are even busier and more stressed for time during December. If your family relationships are strained, this time of the year can be really tough because there is pressure to interact with family.
Other people that feel a deep sense of loneliness often find that it becomes even deeper and more intense around Christmas.

Tis The Season For Credit Card Debt
Once again in 2016, parents will spend far more money than they should because they want to make their children happy. According to a brand new survey from T. Rowe Price, parents in the United States will spend an average of 422 dollars per child this holiday season.
For many Americans, the quality of Christmas is determined by the quality of the presents. This is especially true for our children, and some of them literally spend months anticipating their haul on Christmas morning.
I know that when I was growing up Christmas was all about the presents. Yes, adults would give lip service to the other elements of Christmas, but all of the other holiday activities could have faded away and it still would have been Christmas as long as presents were under that tree on the morning of December 25th.
Perhaps things are different in your family, but it is undeniable that for our society as a whole gifts are the central feature of the holiday season.

Born-Again Babies: Saved By Surgery In The Womb
Did you know that babies can be born again? No, it's not theology I'm talking about but science, and the implications are enormous.
While in her mother's womb, Lynlee Boemer developed an exceedingly rare tumor that grows near the tailbone at the base of the spine. According to the National Organization for Rare Disorders, the tumor appears in only one out of 30,000 to 70,000 live births.

Now in about half these children, the tumor is harmless. But for the rest, like little Lynlee, the tumors can create stress on their developing hearts.

In Lynlee's case, the tumor had grown as big as her body. Her mother, Margaret, said, "It almost looked like a baby with two heads." While other specialists recommended an abortion, those at Texas Children's Fetal Center said there was a chance the child could be saved.

There was no time to lose. "Little Lynlee's heart showed signs of failing, so we knew that it was urgent," said Dr. Darrell Cass.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/rootsquare1.jpg
Lynlee was just 24 weeks along and weighed only one pound. During the emergency operation, Cass and another pediatric surgeon made an incision, pulled Lynlee from the uterus, exposing her tiny frame from her legs to her torso.

Europe: Christmas Shoppers In Jihadist Crosshairs
As the winter nights lengthen, an even darker shadow is falling across the run-up to the Christmas holidays in several European nations. Families in markets and shopping districts across the continent are buying presents in the knowledge that jihadists mean to target them.
Editors Note - This article was originally written Dec 18 - one day before the terror attack on the Christmas Market in Berlin, Germany that killed 12 and wounded 48.
As the winter nights lengthen, an even darker shadow is falling across the run-up to the Christmas holidays in several European nations. Families in markets and shopping districts across the continent are buying presents in the knowledge that jihadists mean to target them.
On November 21, the U.S. Department of State cited a "heightened risk of terror attacks" in an advisory statement set to expire only on February 20, 2017.
"Credible information," quotes Newsweek, prompted a warning to American travellers to "exercise caution at holiday festivals, events, and outdoor markets," given planned attacks by Al-Qaeda and ISIS.
Those attending "large holiday events, visiting tourist sites, using public transportation, and frequenting places of worship, restaurants, hotels, etc." were likewise urged to exercise vigilance.

Israel Shifting Strategies To Prepare For Long Term Russian Presence In Region
Israel's December 7th use of long range, surface-to-surface missiles to strike a military airport inside Syria indicates a dangerous change in the tense dynamic of the Middle East.
Israel's December 7th use of long range, surface-to-surface missiles to strike a military airport inside Syria indicates a dangerous change in the tense dynamic of the Middle East.
The fact that Israel attacked a military target inside Syria shouldn't surprise anyone. A week before, reports indicate that Israeli bombers struck two Hezbollah weapons conveys within Syria and as back in 2007, Israel bombed a Syrian government nuclear site.
There is no doubt that Israel is willing, and has been compelled, to defend its existence with military force. But what sets this attack apart is the use of surface-to-surface missiles rather than bombers.
Simply put, the Russian presence in the skies over Syria and their air defense system has elevated the risk for manned flights from Israel. The cost of a single guided missile with a range of over 25 miles is greater than the cost of a precision munition dropped from an F-16, even considering the cost of fuel for the aircraft.

But it is less costly when considering the danger posed to the pilot, the fighter jet or the risk of starting a war should Israeli planes engage with Russian jets and anti-air batteries.

Why Donald Trump Is Catching Hell For Planning To Move Our Embassy To Jerusalem
There is no controversy like the controversy that surrounds the city of Jerusalem, the most divided city on the earth and the most coveted city on the earth. The Bible predicted this more than 2,500 years ago, describing the day when Jerusalem would be a "a cup that brings dizziness to all the surrounding nations" (Zech. 12:2), even declaring that one day, the whole would be in uproar over Jerusalem.
Stop and think about it for a moment.
Why does the whole world get so exercised over Jerusalem? Is there any other city on the planet that evokes such intense emotions and polar views?
And why does every nation put its embassies in the city that the host country identifies as its capital, except for the city of Jerusalem, identified as Israel's capital in 1950? Why do virtually all embassies remain in Tel Aviv?
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/DTF_Course.jpg
There is something of spiritual significance to this ancient city that simply cannot be denied

Merry Christmas Building and Loan!: The Gospel Message in "It's a Wonderful Life
It's one of the most beloved movies of all time. But I wonder how many people miss the gospel message in "It's a Wonderful Life."
I love the film, "It's a Wonderful Life." My family watches it every Christmas. I sometimes think about how much fun it would be to visit Bedford Falls, and meet all those delightful characters--even Old Man Potter.
My friend and long-time BreakPoint colleague, Anne Morse, recently did just that: well, almost. She visited Seneca Falls, New York, which, legend has it, is the town on which Frank Capra based his fictional Bedford Falls.
It really does look amazingly like Bedford Falls, and every December the town holds an "It's a Wonderful Life" festival. Festival-goers can't resist running down the street yelling "Merry Christmas, Emporium! Merry Christmas, you wonderful old Building and Loan!"--just like Jimmy Stewart did. They can also chat with "Uncle Billy," "Old Man Potter," and other characters.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/DTF_Course.jpg
My friend Anne Morse is so fond of the film that she wrote a sequel to it, titled "Bedford Falls: The Story Continues," in which she imagines what happened to the Bailey family after the Christmas of 1945. Anne also wrote a wonderful piece about her experiences in the "real" Bedford Falls for The Christian Post--and about the gospel message the film contains that many viewers miss.
As Anne puts it, "It's a Wonderful Life" "is a magnificent cinematic depiction of the words of Jesus: 'For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his own soul?' " (Matthew 16:26)
