  • Goliath Gates: Entrance to Famous Biblical Metropolis Uncovered

    08/05/2015 2:42:29 AM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 6 replies
    Live Science ^ | August 4, 2015 | Tia Ghose, Senior Writer
    A massive gate unearthed in Israel may have marked the entrance to a biblical city that, at its heyday, was the biggest metropolis in the region. The town, called Gath, was occupied until the ninth century B.C. In biblical accounts, the Philistines — the mortal enemies of the Israelites — ruled the city. The Old Testament also describes Gath as the home of Goliath, the giant warrior whom the Israelite King David felled with a slingshot. The new findings reveal just how impressive the ancient Philistine city once was, said lead archaeologist of the current excavation, Aren Maeir, of Bar-Ilan...

    I tried to find out a bit more about this woman. Sadly, the only comprehensive source was Wiki, which is not on the list of acceptable news sources for FR. Since, this is the only source that I could find with any amount of personal background for her, I would suggest you take a look at Wiki. 1. Daughter of Anne Richards 2. Husband SEIU organizer 3. Nancy Pelosi's deputy chief of staff 4. Founder of Texas Freedom Network, (which seems to have ironically the wrong name) This explains a lot about Abortion Barbie in the last Texas election.

    Christians With Their Heads In The Sand Friday, July 31, 2015 I recall how history tells us of the German people living next to the gas chambers, ignoring the smell and horror of over six million Jews being slaughtered, and then acting as though they didn't know it had happened. I can also recall that Eisenhower was so disgusted with these callused and unconcerned people that he made them face their denial by marching them all past the dead and decaying piles of corpses of the slaughtered Jews within these electrified wire compounds.

    John Perkins and His Confessions of an Economic Hit Man By Julio Severo Economist John Perkins said, “Economic hit men (EHMs) are highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. They funnel money from the World Bank, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and other foreign ‘aid’ organizations into the coffers of huge corporations and the pockets of a few wealthy families who control the planet’s natural resources. Their tools include fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, and murder. They play a game as old as empire, but one that...

    People who pay union dues may be donating to Planned Parenthood whether they like it or not. The Free Beacon reported on Monday that three of the biggest unions in America donated a total of $435,000 to Planned Parenthood during 2014. The three unions were the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), and Service Employees International Union (SEIU). AFSCME and SEIU both represent public sector employees.​ But the ties between Planned Parenthood and some of America’s biggest unions go far beyond donations. Almost all of the 2014 union-donated money was spent...

The pictures of the smooth, brown, egg-sized rock are part of a new book that also contains photos of the first printer’s manuscript of the Book of Mormon. Officials with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints unveiled the photos at a news conference in Salt Lake City.

    An Iranian official recently stated that no International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) personnel will be permitted to enter military or missile sites. Another stated that "no country is permitted to know the details of future inspections conducted by the IAEA." Their statements are probably consistent. There may well be other secret deals we don't know about and perhaps never will. Meanwhile, Iran is preparing to test long range ballistic missiles "to prove that the missile ban was invalid."

    The ONLY real, valid alternative in life is freedom. Freedom is at the heart of most issues these days even if many don’t realize it. Your run-of-the-mill politician and most candidates for 2016 election see no political future in freedom. Of course that makes sense since political freedom is the absence of government and government coercion. Individual freedom or liberty is tremendously valuable and easily lost and is being drowned out by the deafening drum beats and bull horns of the Leftist MSM, government schools, government press corps, and politicians grasping for fame, fortune (your money) and power (at the...

    Here’s hoping the CMP videos initiate a paradigm shift in the nation’s thinking. We’ve got nothing to lose but our self-imposed cultural degradation The “banality of evil” became part of the cultural lexicon following the publication of German-born author Hannah Arendt’s 1963 book “Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil.” The book recounted the trial of Nazi Adolph Eichmann, who was chief of operations for the Gestapo-run Department for Jewish Affairs, and responsible for the deportation of three million Jews to extermination camps. Arendt hypothesized that people who carry out such barbarous crimes may not be inherently...

The Holy Father’s approval ratings are falling like a stone in a lake and not without good cause. If approval numbers for Francis were plummeting because he was constantly preaching warnings about the penalty for sinning, I would cheer him and say “Good riddance” to those who are upset and maybe want to move to another church because of such warnings. But this is not the case. We are getting a non-stop dose of “Liberation Theology” that provides solutions to...

It is the theme of God’s gifts. In the reading from Exodus, in the reading from Ephesians, and in the reading from John--in each of those readings, God is busy giving gifts to his people. Our God is a gracious and giving God, there is no doubt about that. But how God’s people receive his gifts--how we receive the gifts God gives to us--now that can be quite another question. Do we...

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has published a new book called “Palestine,” a 416-page screed against the Jewish state. A blurb on the back cover credits Khamenei as “The flagbearer of Jihad to liberate Jerusalem.” A friend sent me a copy from Iran, the only place the book is currently available, though an Arabic translation is promised soon.

    If Iran does take steps in the future to annihilate Israel, the leftist Jews who are criticizing Huckabee will never see it coming. And that, Mr. Obama is “sad.” As much as can be generalized, Jews have traditionally been liberal. This can be explained by the fact that Jews have been persecuted throughout history and they tend to identify with people and groups that are or appear to be marginalized.

    The Islamic Republic vows to stay its deadly course There’s nothing quite like the astonishment of progressives whenever their profound and enduring ignorance of human nature is thrust in upon them. And so it is with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and his reaction to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s speech last Saturday. It was a speech during which the Supreme Leader reminded the world the hostility that exists between his nation and the United States is not about to be extinguished by the nuclear arms agreement. “Whether the deal is approved or disapproved, we will never stop supporting...

    IVERNESS, Fla. — A Florida gun store owner has announced that Muslims are now banned from his gun shop. Andy Hallinan, owner of Florida Gun Supply in Inverness, says that, effective immediately, his store is a “Muslim-free zone.” In a controversial video posted online, he speaks of the history of the Confederate flag and goes on to say, “Our leaders are telling you Islam is a peaceful religion full of tolerance and love and hope. Don’t believe their lies.” Hallinan stated that last week’s deadly shooting in Chattanooga, Tennessee, was the final straw for him....

    Super. Thanks a bunch. Thanks to the President’s glorious, perfect, and absolutely imperative nuclear deal, Iran will suddenly have access to $150 Billion in previously frozen assets. This is great news for terrorists and despots the world over because we will have absolutely no say in how they choose to spend it. In fact, as Obama’s National Security Advisor Susan Rice points out, the Obama administration assumes that at least some of that money will go to fund terror operations. During an appearance with Wolf Blitzer, Rice said that “We should expect that some portion of that money would go...

    Spanish government official, José Manuel García Margallo, just recently declared that the only way to deal with ISIS is war, and that all of the terrorist members of ISIS need to be destroyed. According to one Spanish report: Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Garcia Margallo, has been loud and clear in the Congress of Deputies, referring to the Islamic State, against which he says is not worth any diplomatic solution. With Daesh there can be no other solution than the military, there is no negotiation, or Libya or Syria or Iraq. There is only one possibility: physically eliminate [them]. God willing,...

    Gay marriage and abortion have little in common except for how each became federal law without ever being codified by Congress. The U.S. Supreme Court's Obergefell decision delivers social change the citizenry not only did not want but which it actively fought against.

    Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.The current "deal" is based on a long-standing scamPart I of this series, published on July 14, 2015, pointed out what should be a glaring consistency in the “Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action,” first made available on that date, and the November 24, 2013 Joint Plan of Action: neither provides for any "anytime -anywhere" inspections of Iran's nuclear weaponization or missile sites. That consistency has been little remarked upon elsewhere. Secretary Kerry now acknowledges that he never sought such inspections.

    Sunday, July 19, 2015 Millions and Millions of Mohammeds Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Before Mohammad Youssduf Adulazeer shot up a military recruiting center in Chattanooga from a car and then sped away, another Mohammed, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad did much the same thing in 2009. Both struck military recruiting centers in the South, but the 2009 Mohammed had a message for Americans that we unfortunately failed to heed. "This is not the first attack, and won't be the last," Muhammad warned. “I'm just one Muhammad. There are millions of Muhammads out there. And I hope and...

    A Time To Confront Our Enemies At Home "This is not the first attack, and won't be the last." July 19, 2015 David Horowitz, Daniel Greenfield    The killing of five unarmed military servicemen at two military recruiting centers is an omen and a warning: The “war on terror” has come home. Thanks to Obama’s retreat from Iraq and the Middle East, the jihad waged by Islamic terrorists is now being fought on American soil, instead of on a battlefront in Fallujah and Anbar. Thanks to the borders Obama has destroyed and the tens of thousands of legal immigrants the...

    A Muslim boy — who is a member of the Islamic State — sawed a man’s head off and held up the head like it was a trophy:(link to picture...not appropriate to post here)According to the report: A new video purportedly released by the Islamic State shows a young boy soldier beheading a Syrian army officer in Palmyra, Syria.According to The Mirror, after the murder, the overseeing, older jihadi says: “Our goal is not only Palmyra nor Homs or Damascus but our goal is to conquer Bayt al- Maqdes (Jerusalem) and Rome, God willing.”This is ISIS’ second video showing a...

    Charming song… Who says jihadis can’t be creative?Good thing that the US foreign policy in the region since the 90’s has been to weaken Serbia and the Serbian people and support the Muslims in Bosnia and Kosovo. Even though Serbia has been on the side of justice in both WW1 and WW2 (not the mention previous centuries) and suffered enormously in the both those wars, as well as the ones in the 90’s (that nobody ever mentions)…The gratitude from the West is instead… bombs (in 1999) and now the resolution on Srebrenica at the UN. There was no resolution on...
