  • Confession and/or Denial ....

    Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God: But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God. And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven. ( Luke 12:8-10)There are a few scenarios that would have been unthinkable just twenty years ago but which are now increasingly and frighteningly commonplace; A young girl coming home from school...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Army estimates the Russian army’s military capabilities will peak in 2028, closely followed by the Chinese around 2030, giving the United States almost a decade to prepare for those threats, a senior Pentagon official said in an interview on Monday. The top civilian at the U.S. Army, Secretary Mark Esper, said the Army will reduce, eliminate or delay nearly 200 weapons programs and refocus the funds on investing in capabilities to beat emergent Russian and Chinese militaries.

    A report by the now-defunct Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from EMP Attack, for the first time reveals details on how nuclear EMP weapons are integrated into the military doctrines of China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran. "Nuclear EMP attack is part of the military doctrines, plans, and exercises of Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran for a revolutionary new way of warfare against military forces and civilian critical infrastructures by cyber, sabotage, and EMP," the report states.
  • [2016] Harry Reid lied about Mitt Romney’s taxes. He’s still not sorry. [Mentor to Democrat Leaders]

    Washington Post ^ | 09/15/2016 | Chris Cillizza
    ... That is the ultimate statement of political cynicism. What Reid is saying — if you consider the comments to Bash last year and those to Terris recently — is that the ends justify the means in all cases. It doesn't really matter if what he said about Romney's taxes is wrong. All that matters is that Romney lost. That Romney lost is justification enough for Reid to have made the false allegation. ...
  • Iran Accuses US Of 'Psychological Warfare' As Sanctions Are Reimposed

    Iran President Hassan Rouhani has accused the US of 'psychological warfare' after sanctions were reimposed on the country. The move comes three months after the United States pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal, with President Trump saying his policy is to exert "maximum economic pressure" on the country. President Trump said the international decision in 2015 to freeze Iran's nuclear programme in return for the lifting of sanctions was a "horrible, one-sided deal". The President of Iran, Hassan Rouhani also said the deal left the Iranian government flush with cash to use to fuel conflict in the Middle East....
  • Russian Jamming Devices Poses a Growing Threat to U.S. Troops in Syria

    American troops deployed in Syria are increasingly having to defend themselves against Russian jamming devices—electronic attacks with potentially lethal consequences, according to U.S. military officials and analysts. Officers who have experienced the jamming—known as electronic warfare—say it’s no less dangerous than conventional attacks with bombs and artillery. But they also say it’s allowing U.S. troops a rare opportunity to experience Russian technology in the battlefield and figure out how to defend against it. “It’s a great opportunity for us to operate particularly in the Syrian environment where the Russians are active.” Daniel Goure, an expert on national security and military...

    The head of the United States Marine Corps says the Marines' air power could be completely uncrewed within 15 years. General Robert B. Neller, commandant of the Marine Corps, says the technology exists to realize this future. Neller stressed, however, that aircraft would not be completely autonomous, and would still be directed by a human being making key decisions. The Marine Corps Times quoted Neller from an event at the Brookings Institution saying: “I don’t know what war is going to look like in the future, [but] I think things that fly in the sky, the great majority of them...

    “War was always here. Before man was, war waited for him. The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.” – Cormac McCarthy It doesn’t take a biologist to see that mother nature has cruel and violent tendencies. Consider some of the fiercest competitors in the animal kingdom, such as apes, crocodiles, bears, snakes, hippos and many others. These creatures’ natural instincts are to resort to violence when it comes to the pursuit of power, territory and resources. Humans are playing the same game but on a much higher level. In the early days of human evolution, humans were not far ahead...

    It was December 2015, and Dr Weisi Guo was having dinner and listening to the grim news about the conflict in Syria. Over the previous decade, Dr Guo had grown increasingly troubled by the amount of violence towards civilians. He had worked in UNHCR refugee camps in Algeria and seen the human cost at first hand. His own expertise - as an academic specialising in communication networks and telecoms - seemed a world away. But as a physical scientist he wanted a model to help understand the nature of conflict, and so a highly innovative approach began to take shape....
  • The Spiritual Warfre Is Confessional...war on the saints pt 14

    And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say: For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say. (Luke 12:11-12)Notice that Jesus says “When they bring you before…”not “…If …they bring you before…”. Sooner or later every last one of us Christians on some level will be called upon to make the good confession. The setting is never a favorable one, it will range from either mildly hostile to absolutely death dealing hatred,...

    And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.(I John 5:10-21)We cannot do a study of Satan’s War on the saints without facing the reality the Apostle John warns us of, that the Whole World lies in the power of the...

    The shooter in Sunday night’s mass slaughter of 59 concert goers in Las Vegas, identified as 64-year-old Stephen Craig Paddock, a man with no criminal history, is now being investigated for possible ties to Islamic terrorists. At least 527 people were injured in what was described by Sheriff Joseph Lombardo as a well-coordinated attack. ISIS claimed credit in an Arabic-language website, but authorities immediately tried to debunk the claim saying they had no evidence to support it. “We will investigate that down to the end,” but thus far nothing has been found to connect Paddock to international terrorism, Lombardo...

    A retired U.S. general said a Pentagon war scenario showed a conventional war with North Korea could result in about 20,000 deaths per day in South Korea, according to the Los Angeles Times. Meanwhile, a retired U.S. Navy admiral sees a 50/50 chance of a conventional conflict with North Korea although much less likelihood of a nuclear war. On Monday, North Korea's foreign minister, Ri Yong Ho, accused President Donald Trump of declaring war against the hermit regime and threatened that the North has the right to shoot down U.S. strategic bombers even if they are flying in international airspace....

    To pitch her book, Hillary Clinton is sitting down this week for a series of media interviews, mostly with supportive TV personalities, such as Rachel Maddow, to discuss her views of “What Happened,” the book’s title. Calls for Clinton to be quiet and disappear are misguided for all sorts of reasons, including the fact that she is a very smart, informed, and articulate politician, which means her interviews — especially when she’s liberated from programmed campaign mode — are illuminating about how she, and her fellow establishment Democrats who have driven the party into a ditch, really think. An hourlong...

    ngineers working with the Royal Navy have let their imaginations run wild designing what submarines of the future could look like and have come up with stunning concepts which mimic nature. Vessels shaped like manta rays, eel-like drones and swarms of fish-shaped torpedoes are just some of the ideas proposed for revolutionising underwater warfare. Eel-like drones could be deployed from the submarines “With more than 70pc of the planet's surface covered by water, the oceans remain one of the world's great mysteries and untapped resources,” said Commander Peter Pipkin, the Royal Navy's fleet robotics officer. "It's predicted that in 50...

    In today’s wars, American troops face not one enemy, but three: jihadists, infiltrators, and lawyers. Today, our soldiers and Marines are held not just to the laws of warfare, but to unprecedented standards of criminal law, even though they are operating in a combat environment,” said John Maher, a former Army attorney and current reserve lieutenant colonel who specializes in the defense of military accused. Incidents that in the past would have been viewed as collateral damage in the ‘fog of war’ are now being prosecuted as war crimes. Texas defense attorney Colby Vokey, a retired Marine lieutenant colonel, considers...

    The Bible teaches that the Christian life is one of constant growth. When you were born again, you were born into God’s family. It is God’s purpose that you will grow into fill stature and become mature in Christ. It would be against the law of God and nature if you were to remain a baby and thus become a spiritual dwarf. In 2 Peter 3:18, the Bible says that we are to grow. It implies steady development, constant enlargement, increasing wisdom. For one to grow properly certain rules must be observed for good spiritual health. 1.Read your Bible daily....

    Where did the USS Carl Vinson or the “armada” that was “steaming” full speed ahead toward North Korea disappear to? As I was looking over the news I was shocked to read it was on its way to the Sea of Japan. That is exactly where Vice President Pence is today. Pence did a wonderful and honorable job in South Korea for the American people. He spoke directly to the Kim Dynasty when he said “all options were on the table.” The Kim Dynasty also includes Lil’Kim’s sister, who has as much influence in North Korea as Kim. So President...

    HONOLULU (AP) — The U.S. Army soldiers finished wading across a stream in a rainforest in Hawaii, and they were soaked. Their boots and socks were water-logged and their clothes, hair and ears were caked with mud. The soldiers were going through training at the first jungle school the Army has established in decades. The course is part of a program to train soldiers for exercises and potential combat on terrain that looks more like islands and nations in the Pacific than arid Afghanistan and the deserts of the Middle East. Brig. Gen. Stephen Michael, deputy commander of the 25th...

    Lake Sediments Record Climate Change At Cahokia INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA —National Public Radio reports that climatologist Broxton Bird of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis and colleagues analyzed layers of calcite crystals interspersed with layers of mud on the bottom of Indiana’s Martin Lake in order to learn about historic rainfall levels at Cahokia. The study suggests that beginning in the 900s, the Central Mississippi Valley received more rain than usual. And carbon isotopes found in skeletons at Mississippian cities indicate that people ate a lot of corn. “That comes at right around 950, and that’s around the time the population at Cahokia...
