    Four out of the five major events named in an incredible 1981 prophecy have already happened in consecutive order, and the only thing remaining to be fulfilled is ďthe collapse of the economic system of the United StatesĒ. On Friday, I logged into Facebook and I discovered that someone had sent me a message about a website that I had never heard about. I had a few spare minutes so I went and checked the website out and to be honest it was very poorly designed and so I only spent a moment looking at it before I moved on....

    Japanese Rule of 7 ^ | 2OCT2016 | Ken Seeroi
    Itís a funny feeling, being surrounded by a gang of cops, what with the yelling and pointing of guns and all. My first thought was, being shot to death on vacationís gonna suck. Itíd started off well enough. Hidemi and I had breezed in from Haneda two days before. Sheíd wanted to go to California, but I was insistent we spend our vacation in Thailand, lounging on the white sand with a frosty Singha in one hand and a papaya salad in the other. Which would explain why we were lost in the suburbs of Los Angeles with a car...

    I think we can all let our breath out now. Donald Trump is finished. Hillary Clinton will win. A great calamity will be averted. Ms. Clinton probably wonít face an immediate financial crisis, as U.S. President Barack Obama did in 2008. The United Statesí biggest problem at the moment is more insidious. Millions of able-bodied men have dropped out of society Ė out of working life, of civic life, of family life. Many of these men belong to the Trumpenproletariat. How to re-engage them may be the biggest domestic challenge the country faces. Political economist Nicholas Eberstadt calls these men...

    SpaceX hopes to start launching its rockets again in November, a mere three months after the companyís Falcon 9 exploded on a launch pad at Cape Canaveral, Florida. Thatís according to SpaceX president and COO Gwynne Shotwell, who spoke today at Euroconsult's World Satellite Business Week ó a conference in Paris. "We're anticipating getting back to flight, being down for about three months, and getting back to flight in November," said Shotwell, in a video recorded by Andreas Menn, a reporter for German business magazine WirtschaftsWoche. However, Shotwell indicated that the three-month turnaround was the most optimistic scenario for the...

    It sure seems like an odd time to be provoking a war with Russia. As I write this, we stand just a little bit more than three weeks away from one of the most pivotal elections in U.S. history, and Barack Obama has chosen this moment to strongly threaten the Russians. As I wrote about on Friday, Reuters is reporting that Obama is contemplating ďdirect U.S. military actionĒ against Syrian military targets, and the Russians have already indicated that any assault on Syrian forces would be considered an attack on themselves. The rapidly deteriorating crisis in Syria has already caused...

    Engineers erected a commercial Antares rocket vertical on its launch pad on Virginiaís Eastern Shore Friday, positioning the 13-story booster for liftoff Sunday night with more than 5,000 pounds of supplies and experiments for the International Space Station. With a Cygnus supply ship enclosed in its nose cone, the rocket rolled out of its Horizontal Integration Facility on a self-propelled transporter starting around 5:12 p.m. EDT (2112 GMT) Thursday for the mile-long journey to launch pad 0A on Wallops Island, Virginia. Orbital ATKís ground team secured the rocket after reaching the seaside launch pad at dusk, then hoisted the booster...

    As the US officially enters the Yemen military campaign, the UK appears ready and willing to precipiate a catalytic event from which there is no going back. With relations between Russia and the West at post-Cold War lows and deteriorating fast, Royal Air Force (RAF) pilots have been given the go-ahead to shoot down Russian military jets when flying missions over Syria and Iraq, if they are endangered by them. The development comes with warnings that the UK and Russia are now "one step closer" to being at war, according to the Sunday Times. While the RAF's Tornado pilots have...

    DENVER -- Chris Atkins leads a life that might be stranger than any episode of "The Maury Povich Show." The daytime talk show host has made a living out of revealing DNA test results to squabbling couples, but Atkins already knows DNA has proven heís not the father of his ex-wifeís daughter, who was 2 years old when the couple divorced. But since the truth didnít come out until the girl was 11 and his name remains on the birth certificate, he is legally obligated to keep paying child support until she turns 19, reports KDVR. ďIt doesnít make any...

    Because the mainstream media is devoting almost all of their time and energy to covering the Trump and Clinton campaigns, most Americans donít realize that the Obama administration is bringing us perilously close to war with Russia. On Friday, Barack Obama is going to sit down with his foreign policy team and discuss ďmilitary optionsĒ in Syria. As you will see below, the options under consideration include direct strikes ďon Syrian military basesĒ. Russia has already pledged to respond militarily to any direct strikes on Syrian forces, and so the decisions that Barack Obama makes regarding Syria on Friday could...

    A new order from Russian leader Vladimir Putin has stirred fears across the globe that Russia is preparing for a massive conflict. Russia has ordered all government officials to fly home any relatives living abroad, including college students regardless of any impact this has on their studies. ďThis is all part of the package of measures to prepare elites to some Ďbig war,'Ē said Russian political analyst Stanislav Belkovsky. ďItís a fallacy to think that this is like the Cold War.

    At first I thought that this was fake, but now I donít know what to think. On October 1st, a video was posted to YouTube that claimed to show a very strange ďcircle of fireĒ in the clouds that seemed to respond to the blowing of the shofars in the city of Jerusalem below. When this video came out, many immediately dismissed it as a fake because it is only 20 seconds long and because computer-generated graphics can produce these kinds of effects.

    TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KBOI) -- He did it! Stuntman Eddie Braun just mimicked the legendary jump across the Snake River Canyon that his role model, Evel Knievel, attempted 42 years ago. Braun took off at 3:54 p.m. from a property a few miles up the river from the original spot. He launched off a 10-story ramp, flying about 2,000 feet in the air at a speed of 400 mph. This jump mirrored Knievel's in almost every way, including the technology. He's been preparing for the past three years and spent about $1.6 million of his own money on the jump....

    Fellow Conservative, This is not a drill. The Obama administration just implemented a new regulatory change that has sent the entire firearms industry into a tailspin overnight. A key ingredient necessary for making gunpowder has been re-classified as a high explosive, making it illegal for any company within the industry to transport or store it as they have for decades. It all stems from how the ATF regulates a chemical compound known as nitrocellulose. For decades, the firearm industry has been allowed to store and transport wetted nitrocellulose without having to treat it as a high explosive. Manufacturers deliberately mix...

    18:19 Juno should now be starting a slow maneuver from its power-generating sun-pointing attitude toward the orientation required for tonight's Jupiter Orbit Insertion burn. This slow precession maneuver should take about 21 minutes, then Juno will hold its position before starting a faster precession to the burn attitude. 17:56 Last pre-JOI image from JunoCam Here is the official caption from NASA: "This is the final view taken by the JunoCam instrument on NASA's Juno spacecraft before Juno's instruments were powered down in preparation for orbit insertion.

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) - The Sacramento Kings scrapped plans for a T-shirt giveaway at the last-minute on Monday after DeMarcus Cousins reportedly objected to them. The shirts were part of the Sacramento Kings' celebration of the Lunar New Year in February. The shirts depicted a purple monkey symbolizing the year of the monkey in the Chinese New Year in the team's color. The giveaway seems to have been unfortunately planned as Monday was the first day of Black History Month. Referring to African-Americans as monkeys or lower forms of primates has been considered racist, and a shirt with a monkey on...

    That's one way to bring humor to a snowy situation. A man donned a dinosaur costume to shovel snow in Fort Campbell, Kentucky. His wife, Amy Saxon White, told ABC News that he got the costume for Halloween and he loves to dress up for the kids. He decided to put the costume back on in the snow to give a friend a laugh, she said. White posted the photo to Facebook around 9 a.m. today and it already has over 2 million views. "Only my hubs," the caption reads. Kentucky is one of many states that has declared a...

    European Space Agency's head Jan Woerner released the vision outline for the Moon Village, which could replace the International Space Station as early as 2030. The lunar village will be composed of structures created by 3D printers and robots using Moon dusts as raw materials. Woerner became the ESA head in July 2015 and made the Moon mission the space agency's central project. Woerner added that this lunar project is a crucial step towards the future flight to Mars. "I looked into the requirements I see for a project after ISS. As of today, I see the Moon Village as...

    The Falcon 9 booster that dramatically flew back to Earth last month following a commercial satellite launch ignited again Friday in a hold-down test at SpaceX‚Äôs Cape Canaveral launch pad, days before the company is due to launch its next mission from California, officials said. SpaceX chief executive Elon Musk tweeted that the ‚Äúdata looks good overall‚ÄĚ but one of the Merlin engines ‚ÄĒ Engine No. 9 ‚ÄĒ showed thrust fluctuations during the test firing. Officials did not say how long the nine-engine first stage fired at the Complex 40 launch pad at Cape Canaveral, where the Falcon 9 took...

    Elliot Fineman, of the National Gun Victims Action Council, has penned an op ed on CNN.com calling for Obama to declare a "National State of Emergency for the Gun Violence Epidemic." He says this needs to "include universal REAL backgrounds checks, suspending the gun industry's immunity from lawsuits, monitoring ammunition sales and banning those on the terror watch list from buying guns." Fineman goes on to say: It is clear why a National State of Emergency scares the gun lobby and pro-gun lawmakers - it would neutralize them. My organization is encouraging a petition. As we tune in to CNN's...

    The third attempt at a historic reusable-rocket milestone was the charm for SpaceX. The private spaceflight company brought the first stage of its Falcon 9 rocket back to Earth for a soft touchdown tonight (Dec. 21), pulling off history's first-ever rocket landing during an orbital launch. (Blue Origin, the company led by Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos, landed its New Shepard booster successfully last month, but that occurred during a suborbital test.) The Falcon 9 blasted off at 8:29 p.m. EST today (0129 GMT on Dec. 22) from Florida's Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, tasked with delivering to orbit 11 spacecraft...

    Artist's concept of a Falcon 9 booster stage descending to a landing site at Cape Canaveral. Credit: SpaceX Assuming SpaceX's plans come to fruition, a Falcon 9 flight from Cape Canaveral on Sunday will end with a vertical rocket-assisted landing at an abandoned Cold War-era launch facility a few miles away. SpaceX confirmed the rocket's first stage, a slender cylindrical kerosene-fed rocket body standing 156 feet tall, will aim for a controlled touchdown at a landing pad the company rented from the U.S. Air Force less than six miles south of the Falco 9's Complex 40 launch pad.

    SpaceX says Sunday is the target launch date for the first launch of a remodeled version of its Falcon 9 rocket, and the launcher’s first mission since a June failure, after completing a practice countdown and engine ignition test Friday. The mission’s firsts, including a possible landing attempt for the Falcon 9’s first stage, make it a critical launch for SpaceX as the company simultaneously resumes flying its fully-booked manifest, debuts a new generation Falcon booster, and continues a lengthy research and development initiative into rocket reusability. Sunday’s launch attempt is timed for 8:29 p.m. EST (0129 GMT Monday) from...

    Since China's capital city Beijing issued its first ever air pollution red alert last week, sales of bottled Canadian fresh mountain air to Chinese customers have soared. Two entrepreneurs from Alberta have been selling Vitality Air for just over a year, but over the last two weeks their sales to China have increased dramatically, reports The People's Daily Online. The red alert over air pollution was issued by Beijing authorities on December 7, lasting three days, amid the second bout of bad air this month. During this time PM2.5 levels - tiny hazardous airborne particles - exceeded 900 micrograms per...
