Friends, if you have not noticed that these events are escalating at an ever-increasing rate of SPEED, I am concerned for your fate. Time is flying by and there is not much of it left. Please, if you have never experienced a relevant living relationship with our Heavenly Father, I pray that you will do all you can to get close to HIM. REPENT… which means turn from your current lifestyle and find out what pleases HIM.
We are getting so close to the end. I pray that you are awake. If you are not, WAKE UP!!! Please watch the videos below. GOD is revealing the truth to those who have ears.
What I want to know is with so much of our country under the threat of annihilation from flooding where is our PRESIDENT? Why is he flying around the Earth making speeches, when people are loosing everything they have in the world. If something isn’t done soon to address the TOTAL MISMANAGEMENT OF WATER in our Nation, they will be able to eliminate 90% of our population fairly quickly and easily. These DAMS and levees were supposed to CONTROL the Water and PROTECT the people. Seems our trust was foolishly invested in the Utilites and Corps of Engineers. We have been had people. They have known these structures were crumbling FOR YEARS. They did nothing to replace them or prepare the general public for their inevitable collapse. Now, all these people and soon to be so many more are not even getting any assistance in dealing with the aftermath of these manmade disasters. Infact, folks who have been paying all their lives for flood insurance, are now being told they don’t have the right KIND!!! Our President should be actively involved in bring aid and relief to these victims. We need to keep our noses and our pockets out of the affairs of the world and start taking care of our own. Mr President, now is the time for you take the reins and show what you are made of.
There are those who are convinced that the US Government created Al-Qaeda/ISIS as a tool to structure foreign nations to align with their agenda. There certainly has been reason enough to support that belief. So, if that is true, then it is looking like it’s OUR TURN. America, take a look at the decisions that are being made in our country today that appear to be totally NOT in the Interest of the AMERICAN CITIZENS but largely in support of FOREIGN TERRORISTS. What is going on? If you don’t think that the globalists are capable of using TERROR to bring our nation down, you had better think again. IF their goal is to bring “Order Out of CHAOS”, introducing TERRORISM on a large scale would make perfect sense. Don’t you think?
DOES ANYONE REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED AT Ruby Ridge, OR Waco, BRANCH DAVIDIANS? In this next video, the gentleman being interviewed claims the police can do NOTHING about these JiHADI MUSLIM TRAINING CAMPS because of the fact that they are stockpiling weapons and training to KILL US citizens due to the fact that they are not breaking any laws. He states that in their own documents these Foreign Muslim Jihadists state they are “A Muslim force, prepared to attack” US FBI documents declassified and posted on his website classifies these compounds as “an enemy army, fully armed and ready to attack”. YET, our government is doing NOTHING to put a stop this threat to the lives of AMERICAN citizens. Don’t you want to know why?? They certainly had no problem converging on the folks at Ruby Ridge or the Branch Davidians at WACO, who were not an enemy army, and posed no threat. Get on the PHONE! Call your Congressperson, Your Senator, Send a letter to the Whitehouse! Do something, don’t just let this happen in OUR Country! Let your voice be heard!
In letter, ‘American Taliban’ John Walker Lindh said ISIS ‘doing a spectacular job’
By Ken Dilanian
John Walker Lindh, the American captured fighting with the Afghan Taliban two months after the 9/11 attacks, is set to be released from prison Thursday amid concerns among U.S. authorities that he remains a potentially violent Islamic extremist, current and former officials told NBC News.
Underscoring those worries is Lindh’s 2015 handwritten letter from prison to NBC’s Los Angeles station KNBC —revealed for the first time Wednesday — in which he expressed support for ISIS, saying the terror group that beheaded Americans was “doing a spectacular job.”
“The Islamic State is clearly very sincere and serious about fulfilling the long-neglected religious obligation to establish a caliphate through armed struggle, which is the only correct method,” Lindh wrote.
Lindh expressed that sentiment—in response to a question from the station about whether ISIS represents Islam—after ISIS had beheaded Americans in well-publicized videos, including journalist James Foley in August 2014. It was his third of four letters in a series of correspondence with KNBC.
He did not respond to a follow-up question asking him about ISIS violence, saying in his final letter that he would no longer respond to the reporter’s inquiries.
Lindh’s correspondence with journalists and other comments he made in prison formed part of the basis of a 2016 U.S. intelligence document, produced by the National Counter Terrorism Center, saying that he “continued to advocate for global jihad and to write and translate violent extremist texts.
A memo making a similar point was circulating among authorities last week, according to a U.S. official who read it.
After serving 17 years of a 20-year sentence, Lindh will be released for good behavior, as is standard in the federal system. Judge T.S. Ellis imposed unusually restrictive conditions on him, including mandatory monitoring of his internet usage, banning him from foreign travel and requiring mental health counseling. A U.S. official told NBC News he would live in Northern Virginia, something his lawyer affirmed to KNTV, the NBC station in the Bay Area.
“It is one of the most restrictive sets of conditions I’ve seen in a terrorism case, and it probably speaks to their concerns about him,” said Seamus Hughes, a former U.S. intelligence official who studies extremism at George Washington University.
Lindh’s lawyer and a representative of his family declined to comment to NBC News.
The conditions of his supervised release last three years, after which Lindh will be clear of formal supervision. U.S. officials told NBC News the FBI is likely to keep a close eye on him. It’s unclear whether authorities would have a legal predicate to obtain a national security warrant to intercept his communications.
Lindh expressed remorse during his 2002 sentencing hearing before Judge T.S. Ellis in Alexandria, Va., saying he did not support terrorism and he made a “mistake by joining the Taliban.”
In his letters to NBC 4 Los Angeles, he expressed markedly different sentiments, saying he was proud “to take part in the Afghan jihad.” In the letters, he signed his name as Yahya.
Concerns about Lindh’s extremist views were the subject of a 2017 article in Foreign Policy magazine, but they have not been widely publicized. Many people, including prominent figures, had urged that his sentence be commuted, portraying him as a misguided young man who was caught up in the heightened tensions of the post 9/11 period.
One expert said Lindh would be wise to clarify his views about ISIS.
“John Walker Lindh served his time. Given the support for ISIS expressed in this letter from four years ago, it would be important for Lindh to go on record declaring his intentions to live a peaceful and constructive life and to renounce terrorism and violence,” said Karen Greenberg, director of Fordham University’s Center on National Security. “Without that, allegations, confusion and anger will likely continue to surround him.”
“As many as 108 other federal terrorist offenders are scheduled to complete their sentences and be released from U.S. federal prisons over the next few years,” they wrote. “Little information has been made available to the public about who, when and where these offenders will be released, whether they pose an ongoing threat, and what federal agencies are doing to mitigate this threat while the offenders are in federal custody.”
Also disturbed by the release is Johnny Spann, whose son, CIA officer Johnny Micheal Spann, was killed during a prison riot in an Afghan holding facility where Lindh was detained. Judge Ellis said there was no evidence linking Lindh directly to the death.
Spann sent a letter to Ellis asking for an investigation into the intelligence reports about Lindh’s extremism. Spann could not be reached for comment Wednesday.
He told the New York Times: “We’ve got a traitor that was given 20 years and I can’t do anything about it. He was given a 20-year sentence when it should’ve been life in prison.”
Nick Rasmussen, the former director of the National Counter Terrorism Center and an NBC News contributor, said he could not discuss the intelligence about Lindh.
But, he said, “the looming release of John Walker Lindh highlights in the starkest possible way challenges that lie ahead of us in managing the reintegration into society of extremists who finish their prison sentences.”
The criminal justice system is well equipped to prosecute and convict terrorists, he said, “but we are much less well postured to carry out successful rehabilitation and de-radicalization programs. That means that convicted terrorism subjects who finish their sentences like John Walker Lindh could very well pose a security problem once they leave prison.”
Lindh converted from Catholicism to Islam as a teenager, leaving his home in California to study Arabic in Yemen. more than three years before the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He traveled Pakistan and later Afghanistan, where he spent time at a Qaeda training camp and briefly met Osama bin Laden, according to court testimony.
He was captured fighting with the Taliban even as the fires were still burning under the wreckage of what once was the World Trade Center. His situation provoked outrage in some quarters and sympathy in others.
His father, Frank Lindh, in 2006 called him “a decent and honorable young man embarked on a spiritual quest who became the focus of the grief and anger of an entire nation over an event in which he had no part.”
But U.S. officials say that in an era when ISIS is encouraging Americans to attack at home by driving trucks into crowds, his comments and writings in prison make him someone they continue to worry about.

Officially signed onto by the United States in 2013 by former Secretary of State John Kerry, the ATT represented the most dangerous step yet taken by international gun ban advocates. By announcing that he will officially withdraw the United States from the treaty, President Trump made clear that he would not abdicate control over the rights of law-abiding gun owners to foreign bureaucrats. He then signed, in front of all in attendance, a formal letter to the Senate requesting that it halt the ratification process and return the treaty to the Oval Office, where President Trump would “dispose” of it.

TANKER COLLISION SPILLS MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF DEADLY, FLAMMABLE LIQUID IN HOUSTON’S GALVESTON BAY
BP Agrees To Pay $4.5 Billion In Penalties For U.S. Oil Spill
A tanker moving outbound through the Houston Shipping Channel collided with two barges Friday afternoon, spilling an enormous amount of a refined product into Galveston Bay and transmitting a strong gaseous odor that has permeated inland. The vessels were navigating the channel through heavy afternoon rains.
The liquid leaked into the bay is highly-flammable, toxic to marine life and could be deadly to anyone who ingests it.
The collision happened around 3:15 p.m. CT on Friday just east of Barbers Cut, click2Houston.com reported. The barges, each carrying 25,000 barrels of a gasoline-refining product called reformate, were traveling the inbound lane. One barge capsized and the other was badly damaged.
In addition to the chemical spill into the water, a strong odor has reached the western shore of both the Galveston and Trinity bays, and a faint odor has been detected as far west as Interstate-45.
NWS Houston✔@NWSHoustonA barge collision near Bayport has spilled petroleum based product into the water and may be the source of the gasoline like smell being carried westward on the easterly winds across Gavleston Bay. Here is estimate of where the stronger odor may be present.Reformate, the liquid seeping into the waters, is highly toxic to marine animals and can be deadly if swallowed by humans. It is also highly flammable. Reformate is used to boost octane levels in commercially-sold gasoline.
As of 8 p.m. CT, the shipping channel was closed from Light 61 to Light 75, KPRC reported.
Municipal officials inland began receiving reports of a strong gas odor early in the afternoon. The town of Seabrook said its volunteer fire department was dispatched to check out its community.
“We are receiving several reports about a petroleum smell coming from the Bay. The SVFD is investigating, however, we are receiving preliminary reports that the smell may be a result of barge accident in the Houston Ship Channel. We will be working to confirm this information,” Seabrook officials tweeted.

‘Ground-shaking’ explosion rocks Illinois town; 3 dead click to view video
MAY 4, 201901:10
Three people died after a “ground-shaking” explosion Friday night in an industrial complex in Lake County, Illinois, authorities said.
Officials initially classified two men who worked at the complex as missing but police and a company attorney later confirmed their deaths to NBC Chicago.
The explosion and an ensuing fire left the silicone manufacturing plant where the blast occurred too unstable for crews to continue the search, officials said at a Saturday morning press conference.
Download the NBC News app for breaking news and politics
In addition to the dead, Waukegan Police Commander Joe Florip said four workers were transported to the hospital from the scene with “moderate injuries” after the explosion.
Authorities determined that nine people were inside the building at the time of the explosion. Two had been unaccounted for after the body of one employee was discovered Saturday morning, Waukegan Fire Marshal Steven Lenzi said.
“As the evening went on we realized there was more hazardous materials involved, we realized we were going to have to be searching in a building with 90 percent damage to it,” Lenzi said.
Police have confirmed that the explosion took place at AB Specialty Silicones, a 30,000-square-footmanufacturing and distribution company specializing in silicone-based ingredients.
Hours after the initial blast, crews continued to fight the blaze and urged residents to stay clear of the scene.
Lenzi said at least five other buildings in the area have also been damaged. The blast likely caused nearly $1 million in damage, he said.
Hazardous materials technicians became involved as scene conditions worsened and other products from the plant caught on fire, the fire marshal said. Representatives from Illinois Environmental Protection Agency were also on the scene.
The explosion happened near the Gurnee-Waukegan border, which is about 35 miles north of Chicago.
“Something exploded,” resident Emily Laughlin told NBC Chicago. “It looked like it was a building but they stopped everyone from getting closer.”
Neighbor Zach Matusek told the station, “It kind of felt like a freight train hitting the complex. It was almost enough to buckle your knees, it was pretty rough.”
Others in the area posted photos and video of the blast online and described it as a “sonic boom.”
Some as far away as southern Wisconsin reported feeling the explosion, the station reported. Power was knocked out to nearly 1,000 residents and windows were shattered across the area.
WHY IS OBAMA ENCOURAGING ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION WHEN WE CAN’T TAKE CARE OF MILLIONS OF OUR OWN CITIZENS?
For years, the Obama administration has been making it abundantly clear that it is a friend of illegal immigrants
For years, the Obama administration has been making it abundantly clear that it is a friend of illegal immigrants. Border security is a joke, the federal government refuses to go after “sanctuary cities” even though they are breaking federal law, there is a website that instructs immigrants how to sign up for welfare programs once they arrive in the United States, and the Obama administration has distributed flyers that tell illegal immigrants that their immigration status will not be checked when they apply for food stamps. And Obama has even instructed officials to use “prosecutorial discretion” in deportation cases involving non-criminals. In other words, Obama has been flashing a huge green light to illegal immigrants, and so of course our borders were going to be inundated with them.
Apologists for the Obama administration will debate you all day about what Obama “intended” and what he didn’t “intend”, but there is no doubt about what message immigrants from Central America have been receiving.
For example, one young mother recently told the press that she heard that if you “go to America with your child, you won’t be turned away“.
And you can view video of a little boy from Central America telling an investigate reporter that he believes that Barack Obama has “given permission” for him to live in the United States right here.
It isn’t an accident that our southern border is literally being flooded with illegal immigrants right now. Newspapers in El Salvador and Hondurashave been publicizing how easy illegal immigration has become, and even the President of Honduras has said that people are coming to the United States for “Obama’s amnesty”.
When they arrive, thousands upon thousands of these illegal immigrants are using rehearsed answers that border patrol agents are hearing over and over again. Word has spread that if illegal immigrants claim that they are “fleeing gang violence” that it is more likely that they will be allowed to stay.
What we are witnessing down on the southern border is really unprecedented. It has been estimated that twelve times as many kids are crossing our borders illegally now compared to just a few years ago.
And they just keep on coming.
This is utter madness.
Now, please don’t think that I am anti-immigrant. I am all for legal immigration. This is a nation of immigrants and we will always need immigration. But everyone should be required to come in through the front door. Encouraging illegal immigration is simply a recipe for disaster.
If we keep the back door wide open, the truth is that we have absolutely no idea who is coming into our country. Do we really want countless numbers of criminals, welfare parasites, drug dealers and gang members pouring into our cities? According to the FBI, there are now approximately 1.4 million gang members living in the United States, and it has been estimated that illegal immigrants make up approximately 30 percent of the total population in federal, state and local prisons.
And why in the world would we not want to control the diseases coming into this country? Over the past several weeks, it has been documented that some of the illegal immigrants that have been apprehended have scabies and tuberculosis.
But instead of sending them right back out of the country, U.S. officials are setting up camps for this tsunami of illegal immigrants. In other cases, the federal government is simply putting them on buses and planes and shipping them all over the country. The illegal immigrants are released into their new communities and are given papers which order them to eventually appear in court, but of course the vast majority of them never show up. You can see a map that documents areas where the federal government has been shipping illegal immigrants right here.
The rational thing to do would be to secure our borders and to send a very clear message that illegal immigration is not welcome in the United States.
But instead of doing that, the Obama administration is actually bringing in a riot squad to deal with anti-immigration protesters.
During normal times all of this would be crazy enough, but right now we are at a point where we cannot even take care of millions upon millions of our own citizens.
We are told that illegal immigrants do the jobs “that Americans don’t want to do”, but is that really accurate?
In this day and age, there is intense competition for just about any kind of a job. Despite what the mainstream media says, the truth is that there hasn’t been a significant employment recovery in the United States. As you can see from the chart posted below, the percentage of the working age population that is actually working is still far, far below where it was just prior to the last recession…
Yes, there has been a very slight bump in the numbers in recent months, but it is certainly no reason for celebration. When the mainstream media declares that unemployment in America has been steadily going down, they are simply being disingenuous. Right now things are only slightly better than they were during the worst times of the past several years.
And according to shadowstats.com, the broadest measure of unemployment is still well over 20 percent and has been steadily rising since the end of the last recession.
So no, there aren’t nearly enough jobs in the United States.
And thanks to competition from immigrant labor and thanks to the fact that millions of good jobs have been shipped overseas, the quality of our jobs continues to decline as well. For much more on that trend, please see this article.
Needless to say, now is not the time to open up the floodgates to millions of immigrants that will need jobs to support themselves. Many of our major cities are already so economically depressed that they look like war zones. In fact, things have gotten so bad in Detroit that a plan is being considered to bulldoze a fifth of the entire city…
In May, a group ominously titled the “Detroit Blight Removal Task Force” released a report claiming that around 22 percent of the city’s properties were “blighted” – vacant, damaged or considered dangerous. They also found that, of the 84,000 properties owned by public entities, just over 5,000 were occupied by squatters, making the city of Detroit, the report’s authors noted, “a very large and inadvertent landlord”.
The task force’s proposed solution is to demolish it all over the next five years and start again. Unfortunately, the plan doesn’t extend to rebuilding the properties – it’ll be down to private companies and developers to buy up the land and rebuild.
For much more on the decay of our major cities, please see my previous article entitled “The Death Of The Rust Belt“.
Considering the fact that we are already having such a severe problem taking care of our current population, what do you think is going to happen to these waves of illegal immigrants as they attempt to settle in to communities all around the nation?
Ultimately, we are going to have to end up financially supporting a very large percentage of them too.
Right now, more than 20 percent of children in this country are already living in poverty, and 49 million Americans are dealing with food insecurity.
If Obama continues to encourage mass illegal immigration, those numbers are going to get much worse.
Government dependence is already at an all-time record high, and about half the country currently receives benefits of some sort from the federal government every month.
How much more weight can we put on the “safety net” before it breaks? Just check out some more numbers about this crisis from one of my previous articles…
–Ten years ago, the number of women in the U.S. that had jobs outnumbered the number of women in the U.S. on food stamps by more than a 2 to 1 margin. But now the number of women in the U.S. on food stamps actually exceeds the number of women that have jobs.
–The U.S. government has spent an astounding 3.7 trillion dollars on welfare programs over the past five years.
–Today, the federal government runs about 80 different “means-tested welfare programs”, and almost all of those programs have experienced substantial growth in recent years.
–Back in 1960, the ratio of social welfare benefits to salaries and wages was approximately 10 percent. In the year 2000, the ratio of social welfare benefits to salaries and wages was approximately 21 percent. Today, the ratio of social welfare benefits to salaries and wages is approximately 35 percent.
–While Barack Obama has been in the White House, the total number of Americans on food stamps has gone from 32 million to nearly 47 million.
–Back in the 1970s, about one out of every 50 Americans was on food stamps. Today, about one out of every 6.5 Americans is on food stamps.
–It sounds crazy, but the number of Americans on food stamps now exceeds the entire population of the nation of Spain.
–According to one calculation, the number of Americans on food stamps is now greater than the combined populations of “Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.”
–According to a report from the Center for Immigration Studies, 43 percent of all immigrants that have been in the United States for at least 20 years are still on welfare.
A lot of people that are trying to immigrate here illegally just want to make a better life for themselves, and I can appreciate that.
But a policy of making it incredibly difficult for honest people to come in through the front door while keeping the back door completely wide open for lawbreakers is a recipe for national suicide.
And right now we don’t have jobs for these immigrants.
We can’t even take care of the people that are already living here.
Something desperately needs to be done about this, but I wouldn’t hold your breath waiting for Obama to make a bold move to stop illegal immigrants from pouring over the border.
