The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country.

Prominent Rabbi Breaks Silence: 'Messiah Coming this Year!' -

There have been 5,780 holidays of Rosh Hashanna since the creation of the world but if a prominent rabbi’s prediction proves true, in just a few short weeks, Rosh Hashanna number 5,781 will be quite special.

Rabbi Shalom Arush, an Israeli Breslov rabbi and founder of the Chut Shel Chessed Institutions, made an entirely uncharacteristic announcement: On September 18, Jews will be celebrating the last New Year without the Messiah.

“I am going to tell you with certainty that Hashem (God, literally ‘the name) will help us meet together after Rosh Hashanna,” Rabbi Arush said in an interview last week. “And remember well what I am telling you, that this Rosh Hashana will be the last one without Moshiach (Messiah). And it could very well be that on this Rosh Hashanna the Messiah will be revealed.”

The rabbi emphasized that he has never made such a statement before.

“Anyone who knows me knows that for over 40 years I am teaching, and have I never spoken about Messiah,” Rabbi Arush said. “But these are things that are clear and everyone sees them. I can’t explain but please, don’t miss out on this. Because this year, you will receive gifts like never before.”

The rabbi then discussed the tradition of Breslov Chasidim to travel to the burial site of Rabbi Nachman in Uman, Ukraine on Rosh Hashanna. Last year, more than 30,000 Jews arrived in the city of Uman for the holiday.

Due to pandemic travel restrictions, both the Israeli and Ukrainian governments have issued statements saying that they will forbid anyone from traveling between the two countries. Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said that the mass gathering could create a large spike in COVID-19 infections, spreading it among pilgrims as well as the local population.

Rabbi Arush insisted that this year would be unprecedented.

“I know that in heaven they are going to ask me about every word I am saying now,” Rabbi Arush said. “I cannot just say things without meaning them. This year, people are going to get great gifts. I am telling everyone, don’t miss out on this. Make the effort. There is nothing to be afraid of. Our sages have told us that emissaries sent to do a mitzvah (Torah commandment) are never harmed: not on the way, not when they are performing the mitzvah, and not on their way home. And this is even for a small mitzvah.”

The rabbi again praised those who traveled to Uman for Rosh Hashanna.

TBN Drops Kenneth Copeland From Lineup, Will Be Replaced by Megachurch Leader Steven Furtick

The Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), a worldwide television network that for years has aired a number of controversial prosperity preachers, says that as part of its “new vision” and changes to the lineup, it will no longer air Word of Faith teacher Kenneth Copeland, whose “Believer’s Voice of Victory” broadcast had been a part of TBN for 40 years. Airing in Copeland’s stead will be Steven Furtick, a hipster megachurch preacher who reportedly lives a lavish lifestyle and often preaches man-centered sermons.

“Just like the world in which we live, TBN is constantly evolving, seeking to provide exclusive programming that is uniquely built for the challenges facing Christians in this moment,” Marketing Director Nate Daniels told reporters. “As the leading global religious broadcaster, we want to provide our viewers with compelling and dynamic preaching, teaching, news and entertainment.”

He said that “[in] pursuit of a new vision” from President Matt Crouch, the son of the late Paul and Jan Crouch, the network has been making changes over the past several years, which includes distancing from sharathons and becoming more family-friendly.

“As a part of this transition we chose to move away from telethons, upgraded to HD, expanded our streaming platforms, forged partnerships with family brands like K-LOVE, Museum of the Bible and others, and have replaced some programs with new original content from voices like Christine Caine, Mike Huckabee, Mike Rowe and more,” Daniels told the Christian Post.

Copeland advised his followers about the change via Facebook and his website this week, writing in part, “Recently, Matt let me know they believe the Lord is taking TBN in a new direction, and our daily program, ‘Believer’s Voice of Victory’ (BVOV), isn’t really a fit for their future programming. Therefore, as of Oct. 2, 2020, the BVOV broadcast will no longer air on TBN.”

As previously reported, Copeland, who teaches that God wants Christians to be rich and teaches viewers to confess away sickness, has generated controversy for a number of years, including in 2015, when he asserted on his television broadcast that he flies on a private jet to avoid being bothered by “demon” passengers.

“Oral [Roberts] used to fly airlines,” he said. “But even back then it got to the place where it was agitating his spirit—people coming up to him, he had become famous, and they wanted him to pray for them and all that. You can’t manage that today [in] this dope-filled world, and get in a long tube with a bunch of demons. And it’s deadly.”

While he said that he didn’t want to fly with a “bunch of demons,” moments later, Copeland contended that he needed a private jet to help reach the lost.

“We’re in soul business here. We’ve got a dying world around us. We’ve got a dying nation around us,” he proclaimed. “We can’t even get there on the airlines.”

CONFIRMED: The Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force In The Pentagon Says They Found 'Objects And Vehicles Not Made On This Earth' • Now The End Begins
by Geoffrey Grider
7-9 minutes

Isn’t it funny that people who say that UFOs from outer Space are real, and that encounters actually do happen, have been maligned as wacko conspiracy theorists for decades while the whole time the UN government was seeing them with their own eyes and cataloging each event? There has been so much UFO activity that the Pentagon created the The Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force to deal with it all. Funny, but your dime store King James Bible told you 6,000 years ago that space aliens were real. Nice to see the Pentagon finally catching up.

“There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.” Genesis 6:4 (KJB)

“But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Matthew 24:37 (KJB)

With everything else that has been happening in this ‘Revelation’ year of 2020, it would not only be not surprising for a global sighting of a UFO, but I think it’s to be expected. Am I predicting that will happen? No, but at the same time as I watch all the other ‘beginning of sorrows’ taking place, an alien visitation would be par for the course. And what about those ‘objects and vehicles not made on this earth‘ they say have? Expect for that to be rolled out at a politically expedient time as well, the global elites are great at that sort of thing.
Pentagon’s UFO hunting department was NOT disbanded in 2012 as stated and could now give public reports every six months amid claims it found ‘vehicles not made on this earth’

FROM THE DAILY MAIL UK: The Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force has been tucked away inside the Office of Naval Intelligence, and is now being called on to reveal at least some of its findings to the public every six months, according to the New York Times.

Information on mysterious encounters with unidentified aerial objects has formerly only been discussed in classified briefings, and Pentagon officials are still not at liberty to discuss the program, which deals with classified matters.  The new calls for greater transparency come as officials who previously worked with the unit reveal some of the objects discovered in their investigations were items humans ‘couldn’t make ourselves’ and ‘vehicles not made on this earth’.

And Just Like That, UFOs Are Real In The Mainstream


Last month, US senators demanded to see the Pentagon’s UFO files as they pushed for influence over the secretive Navy program.  The Senate Intelligence Committee wanted defense chiefs to publish a report on the Pentagon’s UFO program and any phenomena it observes.

    The committee says it ‘supports the efforts of the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force’ – appearing to confirm that such a program still existed.

In 2017, the Pentagon acknowledged funding a secret multi-million dollar program named the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program to investigate UFO sightings, although defense chiefs claimed it had ended in 2012.

‘It was determined that there were other, higher priority issues that merited funding and it was in the best interest of the DoD to make a change,’ a spokeswoman said at the time. But the Pentagon had been less clear about whether the UFO program continued to hover somewhere in the vast universe of the US defense establishment.

‘The DoD takes seriously all threats and potential threats to our people, our assets, and our mission and takes action whenever credible information is developed,’ the spokeswoman said.

People who worked with the UFO program through to 2017 and beyond have now confirmed to the New York Times that it continued to exist, but under a different name and a different office.

The program first began in 2007 under the the Defense Intelligence Agency but has now moved to the Office of Naval Intelligence, where last month the Senate Intelligence Committee revealed it to be called the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force.

‘It no longer has to hide in the shadows,’ Luis Elizondo, a former military intelligence official and the program’s previous director, told the New York Times.
In April this year, the Pentagon released three videos taken by US Navy pilots showing mid-air encounters with unexplained objects.

The grainy black and white footage had previously been leaked and the Navy had acknowledged they were genuine videos. One of the videos was shot in November 2004 and the other two in January 2015.

In one, a weapons sensor operator appears to lose lock on a rapidly moving object which seconds later suddenly accelerates away to the left and out of view. Retired US Navy pilot David Fravor, who saw one of the ‘UFOs’ in 2004, said the object he saw had been moving erratically.

    ‘As I got close to it … it rapidly accelerated to the south, and disappeared in less than two seconds,’ Fravor told CNN in 2017. ‘This was extremely abrupt, like a ping pong ball, bouncing off a wall. It would hit and go the other way.’

Former Nevada senator Harry Reid, whose state hosts the top secret Area 51 Air Force facility, welcomed release of the videos.

‘I’m glad the Pentagon is finally releasing this footage, but it only scratches the surface of research and materials available,’ he tweeted. ‘The U.S. needs to take a serious, scientific look at this and any potential national security implications. The American people deserve to be informed.’ READ MORE

Giant 13-Foot Oarfish Found in Baja’s Pichilingue Bay in Mexico

This huge 13-foot sea monster was found in Baja’s Pichilingue Bay in La Paz, Mexico.
And since, the DRAGON fish has gone viral because it is told to predict earthquake…

Prior to Japan’s catastrophic 2011 earthquake, there was an ‘unusual number of’ slender oarfish which appeared off Japan from December 2009 to March 2010 and many of these fish washed up on the beaches.

This fueled the myth that these are ‘earthquake fish’ that show up before large earthquakes. There’s no scientific evidence that these Giant Oarfish have any connection to earthquakes but that hasn’t stopped the myth from carrying on.

Hair weaves from Chinese prison camps seized in New York

Stephen Rex Brown
4-5 minutes

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials in New York announced Wednesday they had seized a shipment of weaves and other beauty accessories suspected to be made out of human hair taken from people locked inside a Chinese internment camp.

The shipment of almost 13 tons of hair products worth more than $800,000 bore signs of “potential human right abuses of forced child labor and imprisonment,” the agency said in a release. The violations included “use of prison labor” and “additional situations of forced labor, including, but not limited to, excessive overtime, withholding of wages, and the restriction of movement,” according to Customs officials.

“The production of these goods constitutes a very serious human rights violation, and the detention order is intended to send a clear and direct message to all entities seeking to do business with the United States that illicit and inhumane practices will not be tolerated in U.S. supply chains,” said Brenda Smith, Executive Assistant Commissioner of the CBP Office of Trade.

Rushan Abbas, a Uighur American activist whose sister went missing in China almost two years ago and is believed to be locked in a detention camp, said women who use hair weaves should think about who might be making them.

“This is so heartbreaking for us,” she said. “I want people to think about the slavery people are experiencing today. My sister is sitting somewhere being forced to make what, hairpieces?”

News of the horrific shipment emerged one month after former National Security Advisor John Bolton revealed in a memoir that President Trump told China President Xi Jinping last year that Uighur concentration camps were “exactly the right thing to do.”

Amid a furor over that account, Trump signed the bipartisan Uighur Human Rights Policy Act of 2020, condemning “gross human rights violations of specified ethnic Muslim minority groups in the Xinjiang region in China.”

The massive shipment was made by Lop County Meixin Hair Product Co. Ltd. Customs made a similar seizure from a different Chinese company in May, though that was of synthetic hair.

Both of the exporters are in China’s far west Xinjiang region, where over the past four years the government has detained an estimated 1 million or more ethnic Turkic minorities.

The ethnic minorities are held in internment camps and prisons where they are subjected to ideological discipline, forced to denounce their religion and language and physically abused. China has long suspected the Uighurs, who are mostly Muslim, of harboring separatist tendencies because of their distinct culture, language and religion.

The items are suspected of being made with forced or prison labor, a violation of U.S. Law.

The Associated Press tried to visit Hetian Haolin Hair Accessories Co. more than a year ago during an investigation into forced labor inside the camps. But police called the cab driver taking AP journalists to the area, ordering the driver to turn back and warning that the cab’s coordinates were being tracked.

From the road, it was clear the factory — topped with “Haolin Hair Accessories” in big red letters — was ringed with barbed wire fencing and surveillance cameras, and the entrance was blocked by helmeted police. Across the street, what appeared to be an educational facility was topped with political slogans declaring “the country has power” and urging people to obey the Communist Party. It was unclear whether the factory was part of a detention center, but former detainees in other parts of Xinjiang have described being shuttled to work in fenced, guarded compounds during the day and taken back to internment camps at night.

The Chinese Ministry of Affairs has said there is no forced labor, nor detention of ethnic minorities.

Yellowstone warning: More than a HUNDRED earthquakes strike volatile super-volcano site

Yellowstone: Expert reveals 102 earthquakes recorded in June

More than a hundred earthquakes struck Yellowstone in the past month, sparking fears of a devastating eruption from the volatile super-volcano. Mike Poland, the chief scientist in charge of the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory, revealed the number of recent earthquakes in an overview of activity at Yellowstone during June. Speaking on behalf of the US Geological Survey (USGS), Mr Poland confirmed that 102 earthquakes had just struck the area.

The earthquakes were detected by the University of Utah seismograph stations which are responsible for the operation and maintenance of the Yellowstone seismic network.

Earthquakes are closely monitored at Yellowstone because the super-volcano at the site is feared by many to be overdue another cataclysmic eruption that could wipe out the United States.

Yellowstone volcano's last big eruptions went off about 640,000, 1.2 million and 2.1 million years ago.

When Yellowstone last erupted - an event known as the Lava Creek eruption - the supervolcano covered an estimated an estimated 2,900 square miles (7,500 square km) with ash and fallout.

Roberts Joins Liberals in 5-4 Ruling, Says Requiring Abortionists to Obtain Hospital Admission Rights Is ‘Burden on Access to Abortion’

Supreme Court Justice John Roberts sided with his liberal colleagues on Monday to strike down a Louisiana law requiring abortionists to obtain admitting privileges at a local hospital in the event that a mother is injured in the process of having her unborn baby killed. Roberts, nominated to the court by then-President George W. Bush, opined that the rule “imposes an undue burden on access to abortion.” Many Christians believe that they must vote Republican in order to put “conservative” justices on the bench.

Roberts joined Justices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan to be the deciding factor in the 5-4 decision. Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh dissented.

“The law would reduce the number of clinics from three to ‘one, or at most two,’ and the number of physicians providing abortions from five to ‘one, or at most two,’ and ‘therefore cripple women’s ability to have an abortion in Louisiana,'” Roberts wrote in a separate opinion.

“The Louisiana law imposes a burden on access to abortion just as severe as that imposed by the Texas law, for the same reasons,” he said, referring to the 2016 ruling in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt. “Therefore, Louisiana’s law cannot stand under our precedents.”

Roberts had dissented in the 2016 ruling, but noted in Monday’s opinion, “I joined the dissent in Whole Woman’s Health and continue to believe that the case was wrongly decided. The question today, however, is not whether Whole Woman’s Health was right or wrong, but whether to adhere to it in deciding the present case.”

Louisiana Act Number 620 required abortionists to “have active admitting privileges at a hospital that is located not further than thirty miles from the location at which the abortion is performed or induced and that provides obstetrical or gynecological health care services.”

Admitting privileges are defined as being “a member in good standing of the medical staff of a hospital that is currently licensed by the Department [of Health and Hospitals], with the ability to admit a patient and to provide diagnostic and surgical services to such patient.”

Read the bill in full here.

Justice Breyer wrote the main opinion for the court, similarly stating, “Some hospitals expressly bar anyone with privileges from performing abortions. Others are unwilling to extend privileges to abortion providers as a matter of discretion. … Still other hospitals have requirements that abortion providers cannot satisfy because of the hostility they face in Louisiana.”

And with fewer abortion facilities due to the inability to meet the admission privileges requirement, “it would still leave thousands of Louisiana women with no practical means of obtaining a safe, legal abortion, and it would not meaningfully address the health risks associated with crowding and delay for those able to secure an appointment with one of the state’s two remaining providers.”

Breyer and the majority consequently agreed with a lower court ruling that “Louisiana’s law poses a ‘substantial obstacle’ to women seeking an abortion; its determination that the law offers no significant health-related benefits; and its determination that the law consequently imposes an ‘undue burden’ on a woman’s constitutional right to choose to have an abortion.”

Read the ruling, along with the concurrences and dissents, in full here.

As previously reported, Roberts also joined the liberal justices of the court to uphold Obamacare in 2012, disappointing a number of conservatives who thought he would save the country from the requirements in the Affordable Care Act. He recently sided with his liberal colleagues to reject a challenge to California’s limits on church attendance during the coronavirus pandemic.

In 2005, during a discussion about the separation of church and state with Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., Roberts, a Roman Catholic, explained, “[M]y faith and my religious beliefs do not play a role in judging. When it comes to judging, I look to the law books and always have. I don’t look to the Bible or any other religious source.”

2 Chronicles 19:6 reads, “Take heed what ye do, for ye judge not for man but for the Lord, who is with you in the judgment.”

Psalm 2:10-12 exhorts, “Be wise now therefore, O ye kings. Be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry and ye perish from the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him.”

Planned Parenthood Partner: Some Aborted Babies Are Intact Before Dissected, Some Hearts Are ‘Beating Independently’

In a new video released by the same organization that conducted an undercover investigation into Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted baby parts, the procurement manager for Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR), which services Planned Parenthood locations in southern California, acknowledged under oath that about every couple of months, an aborted baby “falls out” of his or her mother intact and she is presented with a whole child to dissect. Sometimes, she said, she can see hearts “beating independently” from babies who are not extracted intact.

The Center for Medical Progress (CMP), led by David Daleiden, released the footage on Tuesday after a court unsealed recorded testimony and documents that came out of a lawsuit that Planned Parenthood had filed against the pro-life activist.

The video shows ABR’s Perrin Larton being questioned by an attorney under a deposition, being shown footage from the undercover investigation conducted by Daleiden in which she had stated that sometimes the baby just “falls out” during an abortion, especially if the mother has had a number of children already.

The attorney asked Larton how that child then comes to her, as she would perform the procurement of the infant’s bodily “tissues” needed for resale to researchers.

“Is the entire fetus intact in the lab when the procurement technician enters the lab?” he inquired.

“Yes,” Larton responded.

“How does a tissue procurement occur in one of these situations when the entire fetus in intact in the lab?” he asked.

“We do a dissection,” Larton answered.

The attorney then asked if the dissection is to obtain the “tissues” that are on the list of those requested by researchers. Larton responded in the affirmative.

When asked if the babies don’t have a heartbeat when the procurement is conducted, she advised, “It would depend.”

“I can see hearts that are not in an intact POC (product of conception, i.e. baby) that are beating independently,” Larton outlined.

The Center for Medical Progress is concerned that Planned Parenthood and its partners might be engaging in organ harvesting of babies born alive, in violation of federal law, 18 U.S. Code 1958.

As previously reported, CMP also released a video at the end of May showing Planned Parenthood Mar Monte Chief Medical Director Dorothy Furgerson seemingly testifying under oath that the payments her organization received from partner Stem Express were directly for the baby body parts, based on their usability.

When asked whether Planned Parenthood would still be paid if a “sample” was found to be unusable, Furgerson simply answered “no.” Asked again whether Planned Parenthood Mar Monte would only be compensated if the sample was usable, she replied “yes.”

CMP noted that the admission is important because Planned Parenthood had claimed to the media and others that it was only donating the “tissue” and the funds received were not for the aborted “tissues” themselves but for general administrative “costs” associated with their transferal.

Further, the Stem Express contract with Planned Parenthood Mar Monte also expressly stated that the affiliate would be paid “$55 per POC [product of conception] determined in the clinic to be usable and $10 per maternal blood.”

“Planned Parenthood Mar Monte will invoice Stem-Ex monthly for the number of POC’s and number of maternal bloods procured by Stem-Ex,” it reads.

Invoices sent from Planned Parenthood Mar Monte to Stem Express, which were a part of the court record, show the abortion giant billing Stem Express for thousands of dollars each month.

As previously reported, following the release of Daleiden’s undercover videos in 2015, then-Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards firmly denied that the organization received compensation for aborted babies, stating in a recorded video:

“I want to be really clear: The allegation that Planned Parenthood profits in any way from tissue donation is not true. Our donation programs — like any other high-quality health care providers — follow all laws and ethical guidelines.”

Planned Parenthood also claimed that the videos had been deceptively edited, but the full versions of the recordings were freely viewable on YouTube for all who wished to watch the hours-long raw footage as well.

US Supreme Court Lets Laws Creating Buffer Zones Around Chicago, Harrisburg Abortion Facilities Stand

The U.S. Supreme Court declined on Thursday to take up challenges to rulings upholding laws in Chicago, Illinois and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania that create buffer zones around abortion facilities. The laws require those who wish to reach abortion-minded mothers to stand back at a certain distance away from the entrance to the facility, making it harder to communicate with those intent on having their unborn child murdered.

While the denial for certiorari was without explanation, the court did note that Justice Clarence Thomas was in favor of hearing the cases.

The appeals for consideration were Price v. City of Chicago and Reilly v. City of Harrisburg. Read the appeal briefs here and here.

The 2009 Chicago ordinance classifies a person who “knowingly approaches another person within eight feet of such person, unless such other person consents, for the purpose of passing a leaflet or handbill to, displaying a sign to, or engaging in oral protest, education, or counseling with such other person in the public way within a radius of 50 feet from any entrance door to a hospital, medical clinic or healthcare facility” guilty of disorderly conduct.

The 2012 Harrisburg statute states that “[n]o person or persons shall knowingly congregate, patrol, picket or demonstrate in a zone extending 20 feet from any portion of an entrance to, exit from, or driveway of a health care facility.”

Sidewalk counselors outside of facilities in these cites, who engage in leafleting and one-on-one conversation with abortion-minded women, considered the rules a violation of their First Amendment rights to speak, assemble and exercise their religion. They note that the laws make it difficult for them to effectively communicate since they must stand so far away.

The Chicago and Harrisburg ordinances were challenged in 2016, but the courts upheld both statutes. Their attorneys, the Thomas More Society and Liberty Counsel, respectively, were hoping that the U.S. Supreme Court would take the cases as provide clarity to the issue in light of past legal precedent.

“With its ‘bubble zone’ law, the City of Chicago is doing women a great disservice by denying them access to information at a critical time in their lives,” Senior Counsel Thomas Olp with the Thomas More Society said in an interview posted to the organization’s website.

“Additionally, this law is vague and over-broad and does not serve any legitimate interest of the city. Chicago has never had an issue with obstruction of access to abortion facilities,” he stated. “The abortion lobby wants people to believe that pro-life advocates who witness outside abortion clinics are aggressive and threatening. That’s just not true.”

As previously reported, the Supreme Court did rule on another abortion case this week, as Justice John Roberts sided with his liberal colleagues on Monday to strike down a Louisiana law requiring abortionists to obtain admitting privileges at a local hospital in the event that a mother is injured in the process of having her unborn baby killed.

Roberts, nominated to the court by then-President George W. Bush, opined that the rule “imposes an undue burden on access to abortion.”

 Democrats Are Using America's Younger Generations Like Hitler Did His Nazi Youth: So The Carnage Across America Now Hints Of Total Destruction Ahead If We Stay On The Same Path We're On

- Their ultimate goal is to control the lives, speech, and actions of everyone

By John C. Velisek, Retired, US Navy - All News Pipeline

There are certain aspects of the ongoing Black Lives Matter/Antifa uprising that must be made evident to our country's citizens. The leftist rioters do not understand that what they are doing to destroy our country will not work. The rioting and burning of local businesses, many minorities owned, the overtaking of city property, the tearing down of statues that are a part of our history will do nothing to improve our country.

All the efforts that they feel will intimidate people will only anger those who believe in our country. No amount of indoctrinating our children in academia will keep them from understanding that there is no option for a way of life that has made America the envy of the world. They want to use our children, much like it was done in Nazi Germany.

There are similarities to the Nazi Regime of Hitler and Black lives Matter today. In Hitlers Germany, there was talk of reparations, the monies of those who earned it were taken away and given to those who fomented the revolution. Looting and the destruction of business was also a part of the Nazi regime. Morality and the moral norms that are in any civilized culture were broken down. Freedom of speech and thought were curtailed in the media and everyday discussion if they did not conform to the party line or the "struggle of the people."

Not mentioned is the struggle of the people in our inner cities with rampant violence and murders. Black Lives Matter never mentions it, the media won't cover it, and the leftists in the Democrat party ignore it. Why? It doesn't fit the narrative that they are trying to push on the American people. They can't virtue signal to defund the police if they discuss that constant murders in the significant cites run by the Democrats. They need to set a narrative where they can make law enforcement the villain, even though they coddle criminals with policies like "no bail" bond to put criminals back on the street.

The same words used by the Nazis, such as “social justice” was an integral part of the Nazi doctrine. The next step recently begun is to have the children tattle of their parents. All of these were the agenda forced on the German people as part of Nazi Germany. It is also a significant part of the plan of Black lives Matter. In essence, the final goal is intended to be to control the lives, speech, and actions of those they do not agree with in any aspect.

In today's case, those who do not agree have made it clear that with the help of the progressive socialists and media, they intend to negate those who disagree, conservatives, white, and those who still believe in religion to kneel and treat them as our overlords. They have come up with another mindless bumper slogan – “silence is violence.” It is just a way to force those of our country to blare mindless Marxist slogans to get their approval. They will continue to use mob rule to stifle anyone who may dissent or criticize the Marxist Black lives Matter and globalists who intend to rule.

This will occur because groups like Black Lives Matter intend to do the best they can to break up the nuclear family. In this country, we have an equality of opportunity and equality of effort and not equality of outcome. They want to use Marxist doctrine to nullify the rights of everyday Americans of every color and religion. A little secret is that those on social media and the progressive socialists in the Democrat party do not understand that Americans will fight for their rights.

One of those rights is the freedom of speech that will come forth in condemning their attempt to force Americans to bow to such leftists as Black Lives Matter and Antifa. Black lives Matter is nothing more than the violent army that Obama called a national army. It was founded by three Marxist agitators for the purpose of silencing any dissent that could disavow the radical socialist agenda they have enshrined as part of their attempt to demoralize and destroy the law-abiding Americans that they so despise.

Every day, Americans are starting to get fed up with the terrorism, destruction of property, and condescension of the elites trying to pull the strings of our country to force the American people into something they do not want and will not consent to in their lives.

This agenda of the progressive socialists have already led to civilians using firearms to protect the property they have worked so hard to build. In Provo, Utah, a man who was attempting to evade a swarm of these animals was shot in his car. Does it need to come to the point where everyday Americans need to leave their homes armed to protect themselves from these animals? Can they not understand that no matter how many Marxist celebrities, universities, now nothing more than Marxist Workemen’s circles, or global organizations kowtow to the virtue-signaling they require, the American people will fight back.

Are there any explanations of Black Lives Matter taking in millions of dollars and funneling through ActBlue to the progressive socialists. Is there any explanation for the $33 million funneled to BLM by the anti-American globalist George Soros to incite the violence they feel they need to transform our country into the laughingly corrupt socialist utopia that they need? The staged pre-programmed riots will not make a difference to ordinary Americans, and in the end, will create animosity and anger leading to the civil war they so desperately need. It will do nothing for the inner city groups they say they want to help. And honestly, black lives do not matter to BLM. If they did, the money they have would be used to assist the inner city, particularly the youth, to help them move forward instead of 60% of it going to the leadership and travel.

Today, the word "racist" is meaningless. It's offshoots "systemic racism," "institutional racism," and “white privilege” is nothing more than bumper stickers with no meaning used to attempt to silence those who disagree. But let’s take an honest look at who are the real racists. Antifa is nothing more than rich white liberal kids playing at revolution by using violence to silence their critics. BLM, with the support of the progressive socialist of the Democrat party plan to fulfill the totalitarian agenda of the globalists. They won’t speak of the agenda because they would have to admit that they are the racists. The media is complicit in furthering the plans to blame white America for the challenges faced in Democrat-run cities.

The rioters, with help from the media, celebrities, and academia can not explain that the party they endorse, has been responsible for the destruction of big cities that the Democrats have run for decades. They can’t explain why they have such members as Irami Osei-Frimpong, a University of Georgia teaching assistant, feels free to write that some white people may have to die before black communities are made whole. They can't explain why the party they endorse has to keep minorities weak and on the plantation for so long. They can't explain why a father, as head of the household, is a detriment to the people they claim to be helping. The party that they endorse keeps their children from freedom of choice when choosing a school. They support abortion, a procedure started by a eugenist trying to wipe out the "defective" black race and claimed backs were inferior. They endorse the party that at a convention in 1932 called the KKK “righteous and for the betterment of humanity.

The progressive socialist Democrats use "systemic racism," a platitude with no truth in reality. To further divide our country without stipulating that the systemic racism inherent in this country is part of the history of their own party. The false promises they have made over the past 50 years are damaging to the people of color they claim to support. But they virtue signal to show how they are much better than middle-class white folk who have no power to change things. Defunding the police is fine with them because the progressive socialist Democrats have their gated homes and private security. Even the Minneapolis City Council have received taxpayer funder security, but still, demand that law enforcement be disbanded. And it appears that law enforcement in that city will be replaced with a sharia/BLM contingent to keep the community safe. What is not mentioned is that it will then become a sharia-compliant city.

The BLM today shows many of the same characteristics of the KKK in the 1930s and 1940s. Both the KKK and the BLM/Antifa socialists' goals are much the same. They plan to tear America away from the God-given rights given to us in the Constitution through tactics of terror and fear. They will never realize that the terror and fear they are attempting to force on the American people will become determination and anger to stop the destruction of all that American hold dear.

The post-truth era that we find ourselves in will not end well. And the American people will rise up and demand that the intellectual and indoctrinated social activists admit that America is not on their side. The community agreement that they seek through force and violence will not change the hard-working Americans that love this country. They will soon realize that the patriots of this country will not take anymore. It is not the province of the progressive socialists, globalists, or elites who think they know better than the American people to declare community agreement of policies that the American people disagree with.

China, India standoff more than a war over rocks
8-10 minutes

As China and India square off in a Himalayan standoff after a skirmish in that killed 20 Indian troops in mid-June, it’s becoming clear to most the staredown is not chiefly about which side should control an uninhabited piece of barren mountain rock.

Indeed, observers and analysts agree that the conflict is about something bigger: strategic rivalry between Asia’s two giants and more specifically China’s desire to punish India for rejecting its multinational Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

China, it seems, is keen to send a message to India’s neighbors on who now rules the roost in the Indo-Pacific region, particularly at a juncture when India and many of its allies and partners – not the least the United States – struggle to contain Covid-19 outbreaks at home.

But while it is understandable that an increasingly assertive China wants to flex its growing muscles while the West is preoccupied with health crises, regional analysts are left to wonder why Beijing appears to be simultaneously shooting itself in the foot by antagonizing other regional countries.

Some analysts believe China is flexing its muscles, not just on the Himalayan border but also in the South China Sea and over Taiwan, as a sort of new Cold War litmus test to gauge which nations are willing to openly criticize Beijing’s more assertive posture and which remain reticent.

In this connection, however, China may get more than it bargained for in taking on India.

China’s domestic vernacular media have shied from covering the Ladakh mountain standoff in detail, though the English-language Communist Party mouthpiece The Global Times has published strong warnings to India, including one de facto threat on June 15 to conscript other regional “reliable strategic partner(s)” like Pakistan and Nepal into the dispute.

Hu Zhiyong, a supposedly independent scholar in Shanghai, was quoted in the paper as saying that “If India escalates border tensions, it could face military pressure from two or even three fronts.”

Those reports and commentaries are clearly meant for foreign audiences, especially readers in India, who have been reminded of what the paper referred to on May 25 as India’s “crushing defeat” in a 1962 high mountain border war between the two sides.

In a June 22 editorial, The Global Times wrote that “we would like to warn India’s feverish nationalists not to lead New Delhi down the wrong path, and not allow India to repeat past mistakes.”

Unlike in 1962, Beijing now not only has regional allies but, as the paper also emphasized in a June 22 editorial, China is “an industrialized country with a GDP [gross domestic product] five times that of India, it spends more on defense than India does, and most of China’s advanced weapons are manufactured domestically, but all of India’s advanced weapons are imported.”

While much of that may be true, India is not the same military ill-prepared country that it was in 1962. Indeed, more recent history shows India can stand its ground against China. The first test came when the two sides’ clashed at two mountain passes between Sikkim and Tibet in September 1967.

At that time, China’s Foreign Ministry issued a statement strikingly similar to today’s pugilistic rhetoric: “Do not misjudge the situation and repeat your mistake of 1962.”

But, according to Indian statistics which have not been disputed by independent observers or scholars, 88 Indian soldiers were killed and 163 wounded while the Chinese side suffered 340 killed and 450 wounded in the 1967 Himalayan clash.

The only serious armed incident after that was in October 1975, when Chinese troops ambushed a contingent of the paramilitary Assam Rifles in Arunachal Pradesh in the eastern Himalayas. Four riflemen were killed, but it did not escalate tensions along the volatile 3,500-kilometer frontier that separates the two sides.

In late 1986 and early 1987, thousands of Chinese and Indian troops confronted each other also in Arunachal Pradesh, but no clashes occurred. In that instance, Chinese troops were forced to retreat.

According to an Indian Army officer who was on active duty along the border at that time, then-army chief General Krishnaswamy Sundarji “wanted to show the Chinese that this was not 1962. He wanted to…demonstrate to the Chinese that it’s a different Indian Army they are facing today.”

Indeed, India has strengthened and modernized its armed forces, formed one of the world’s most extensive and sophisticated strategic external intelligence agencies, and, not least, become a nuclear power. When India has fought, it has won, including armed conflicts against neighboring Pakistan, most recently in 1999 at Kargil in Jammu and Kashmir.

With more than 1.4 million active troops and nearly a million in reserve, India now has the world’s largest standing volunteer army. India’s production of defense material declined in the 1990s, but has more recently revived, seen in $1.46 billion worth of military materiel exports in 2018-2019.

While neither side likely wants a full-blown conflict, bickering over the border will not easily be resolved. One problem is that the colonial British who once ruled India drew up several proposed borderlines separating what was once their territory from the Chinese.

One is the outer Ardagh-Johnson Line which was named after two 19th century colonial administrators and follows the border as drawn on official Indian maps today. The other is the MacCartney-MacDonald Line, named after two other British officials, which follows roughly China’s claims.

The area in dispute and which India claims, Aksai Chin, is so remote that it was not until 1957 that India discovered that China had built a highway connecting Xinjiang with Lhasa in Tibet through it. The Galwan valley, where the mid-June clash took place, was also a flashpoint during the 1962 war.

The Line of Actual (LAC) control today is to the west of the MacCartney-MacDonald Line. Another major problem, Indian negotiators say, is that while they have marked their claims precisely on official maps, China’s are more diffuse and are frequently changed.

Those shifting boundaries are keeping China’s various neighbors on edge as Beijing pushes for a new world order with itself at its center. By testing and probing borders and boundaries, from the Himalayas to the South China Sea, Beijing is gauging responses and acting accordingly to maximize its claims.

An all-out war with India is unlikely, but the dispute may escalate in other ways as China pushes its BRI forward across the region. That infrastructure aims to augment trade, which is still important between the two sides, though the Covid-19 crisis has taken a heavy toll on recent volumes.

As the border crisis started to mount in February, India’s exports to China dropped 13.7% to $1.1 billion compared with the same period in 2019, while shipments to Hong Kong declined by 62.4% to $681 million. It remains to be seen how heavily the Covid-19 crisis will affect future trade and therefore the possibility of a wider conflict.

What is certain, however, is that China is fortifying its military installations along the LAC. In the mid-June clash that killed Indian soldiers, Chinese troops reportedly used clubs wrapped in barbed wire and iron rods welded with nails in their assault.

That explains why no shots were fired and the hostilities were quickly capped. But newly built bunkers, tents and storage facilities now dot the LAC on both sides, meaning both sides are digging in for a long showdown.

Yet if China really wants to “teach India a lesson”, using military rather than crude rudimentary weapons, Beijing should know by now that any armed conflict in 2020 won’t likely proceed or end like the one it handily won in 1962.

California governor bans singing in church

Leftist governors across the country have taken advantage of the coronavirus lockdown procedures by banning most church assemblies – even while allowing other groups to meet. The double standard has been especially obvious in recent days as many of them openly have advocated for the masses of Black Lives Matter rioters torching cars and buildings while still maintaining that church congregations could gather in groups of no more than 10. California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s orders for the July 4th weekend are the latest move in the agenda. The Sacramento Bee reports he has announced that people who meet in church will not be allowed to sing.

In Michigan, House Passes Bill To ‘Voluntarily’ Begin Placing Human Implantable Microchips Into The Bodies Of All State Government Employees

The Michigan House passed a bill making implanted company microchips voluntary for employees, according to a local ABC News report.

People have been placing human implantable microchips in their bodies for years now, and we have chronicled all that for you over the years. Now the state government of Michigan has passed a bill that will call for all state government employees to receive microchips inside their bodies. But don't worry, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, the same person who wants due-date abortion, has reassured everyone that it will be 'voluntary'. After thinking about that long and hard, 🤣🤣🤣 is all I have to say about that.

"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six." Revelation 13:16-18 (KJB)

Is this really where we are, is this actually where things stand, American citizens receiving microchips from the government? Yep, that is exactly where we are. We told you this was coming, welcome to the first wave of 'voluntary' microchip implantations. The second wave will be less voluntary, the third wave will be under Antichrist himself. Hey, all of us born again Christians are booked on Flight #777 on Titus213 Airlines that will get us out before it gets to heavy, wanna come with us? Click here to get your boarding pass and check-in information. But you better hurry, it takes off soon and very soon.

Michigan House passes bill to make human implantable employee microchips ‘voluntary’ for now

FROM THE JPOST: Michigan State Rep. Bronna Kahle sponsored the successful bill, and while the microchips are not widely used throughout the state she believes they will become standard in the coming years. “With the way technology has increased over the years and as it continues to grow, it’s important Michigan job providers balance the interests of the company with their employees’ expectations of privacy,” said the bill’s sponsor Michigan State Rep. Bronna Kahle. “While these miniature devices are on the rise, so are the calls of workers to have their privacy protected.”

    The bill will be introduced to the State Senate where, if it passes, Governor Gretchen Whitmer will be able to sign the legislation into Michigan law.

The microchips in discussion, are about the size of a large grain of rice inserted between an employees thumb and forefinger to give employees access to different amenities throughout the office. They not battery powered, and are instead activated and used as individual ID for the employee when introduced to a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) reader.

The chips can be used as a key fob for the office, time cards, a credit account for the cafeteria or vending machines, a way to access company laptop or office devices and, more controversially, as a way for employers to track employee productivity.

It can track when a person arrives at work and leaves the building, activities the employee does throughout the day such as accessing the laptop or even what they decide to eat at the cafeteria. Under the bill companies would still be permitted to use the microchip system, however, employees would have the opportunity to opt out if they wished. READ MORE

Here Are The Air Force's Reports On Aircrew Encounters With Unidentified Flying Craft

The 25 reports that The War Zone obtained, which cover various types of incidents around the world and come from the Air Force Safety Automated System (AFSAS) database, came in response to a request that asked for copies of "any flight incident, hazard, or similar reports that the Air Force Safety Center received during the calendar years 2013 to 2019 that deal with encounters that any Air Force aircraft had anywhere in the world with any unidentified aerial objects."

This date range was meant to capture a snapshot of similar experiences that the Air Force might have been having around when Navy pilots said they saw a spike in the number of encounters with unidentified aerial phenomena, or UAP, more commonly known as unidentified flying objects, or UFOs, off the East Coast of the United States through the end of the most recent complete calendar year.

Personal identifying information is redacted throughout the Air Force reports. "Safety investigation boards’ Findings, Evaluations, Analyses, Conclusions, and Recommendations are exempt from disclosure," the Air Force Safety Center also said in a letter accompanying the release, citing various Air Force and Department of Defense regulations, as well as relevant FOIA case law, which you can read in full, with certain personal information redacted by us, here.

"All other privileged portions of the report have been withheld according to established laws," the letter added. "Unfortunately, some pages are virtually illegible due to the quality of the microfilm record and our capability to reproduce it."

It's not clear which of the records released, if any, were reproduced from reports contained on microfilm. The Air Force was still offering the option of sending FOIA request responses on actual microfilm in the late 2000s, but generally only for older records created years before the widespread introduction of computerized databases, such as AFSAS.

#1, June 17, 2014: 27th Special Operations Wing

The 27th Special Operations Wing, the main unit at Cannon Air Force Base in New Mexico, reported an unidentified fixed-wing aircraft flying under Visual Flight Rules (VFR) intruding into the nearby R5104 range area. Neither the Range Control Officer (RCO) at the adjacent Melrose Air Force Range nor the base's Radar Approach Control (RAPCON) could establish communications with the aircraft. Members of the 27th Special Operations Wing also advised the Federal Aviation Administration's Albuquerque Center Air Route Traffic Control Center of the situation.

The unidentified aircraft first appeared around 11:04 AM local time and it had exited R5104 by 11:22, after which radar contact was lost.

#2, July 2, 2014: HC-130P Combat King and HH-60G Pave Hawk, 58th Special Operations Wing

The 58th Special Operations Wing, a major unit at Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico, reported a near-collision during a nighttime aerial refueling training sortie on July 2, 2014. An HC-130P Combat King combat search and rescue and tanker aircraft, using the callsign Akela 39, was refueling an HH-60G Pave Hawk combat search and rescue helicopter, with the callsign Skull 65, when an "unidentified helicopter" flew under the two aircraft at a distance of between 100 and 300 feet. Both aircraft were flying in Aerial Refueling Track 117 near Sorocco, New Mexico.

The HC-130P's crew had first spotted to object when they saw a bright light near the aircraft. The HH-60G crew also saw it and initially thought it might be headlights on a vehicle on the road below. However, the light grew brighter to the point of blinding the Pave Hawk's pilots, who were operating using night-vision goggles at the time. This resulted in an extremely dangerous situation in which the helicopter's crew was no longer aware of their distance from the HC-130P, or that they were moving backward away from it, until the HH-60G's aerial refueling probe inadvertently disconnected from the drogue basket trailing behind the Combat King.

No communication was ever established with the unidentified helicopter and there was no indication it ever maneuvered to avoid either the HC-130P or the HH-60G.

#3, July 24, 2014: C-130J Hercules, 317th Airlift Group

A C-130J Hercules airlift assigned to the 317th Airlift Group had a near-collision with an unidentified light fixed-wing aircraft while heading toward the Rogers Drop Zone (DZ), approximately eight miles to the south of Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington State, during a training mission. The C-130J's Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) alerted them to the other oncoming aircraft.

"The EC [Event Crew] called a No Drop and executed a 180 degree turn during which the crew visually sighted a light fixed wing aircraft (EA2) [Event Aircraft 2] behind them still flying toward their position," the report says. "The crew contacted Seattle Approach Control, but the aircraft did not seem to be in radio contact during the incident."

#4, Nov. 21, 2014: KC-135R Stratotanker, 121st Aerial Refueling Wing

A KC-135R tanker assigned to the 121st Aerial Refueling Wing, an element of the Ohio Air National Guard, got notice of a potential hazard from its Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) on Nov. 21, 2014, while climbing away from Wilmington Airpark near Wilmington, Ohio, following a planned missed approach as part of a training sortie. The crew slowed their climb out until the TCAS indicated that there was no longer any air traffic conflict

#5, Feb. 7, 2015: HC-130 Combat King, Unidentified Unit, and 45th Space Wing

On Feb. 7, 2015, an HC-130 Combat King combat search and rescue and tanker aircraft belonging to an unidentified unit had an encounter with what was described as "a possible remote control (RC) aircraft" with a "flashing red light" near the junction of Florida State Road A1A and the Pineda Causeway. The 45th Space Wing at nearby Patrick Air Force Base subsequently reported the incident, which it felt had "high accident potential."

Personnel at the tower at Patrick spotted the possible remote control aircraft and contacted the Brevard Country Sheriff's Office (BCSO), which subsequently sent deputies to investigate. The Air Force Security Forces Squadron at Patrick were also involved, but neither it nor the BCSO found any further evidence of the object, which had been flying an estimated 900 to 1,000 feet in the air.

This particular entry notes the growing hazard posed by "hobbyists and other civilians" operating remote-control aircraft and drones. It states the FAA rules at the time prohibiting the operation of unmanned aircraft above 400 feet within three miles of airports and air bases.

#6, Apr. 21, 2015: KC-135R Stratotanker, 379th Air Expeditionary Wing

A KC-135R tanker assigned to the 379th Air Expeditionary Wing, part of Air Forces Central Command (AFCENT) at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar had an encounter with an "unidentified aircraft" while conducting an operational aerial refueling mission over Afghanistan near Kandahar. The tanker's crew visually acquired the unknown aircraft while refueling an unspecified combat jet, which had an "air-to-air radar."

The crew of that jet could not acquire the unidentified aircraft with their radar. Tactical air traffic control radar in the area never picked it up, either. The KC-135R ultimately completed its mission and safely returned to base.

#7, May 15, 2015: KC-135R Stratotanker, 100th Aerial Refueling Wing

On May 15, 2015, a KC-135R Stratotanker from the 100th Aerial Refueling Wing had a near collision with an unidentified aircraft while on approach to its home base of RAF Mildenhall in the United Kingdom. The aircraft was also in contact with the Radar Approach Control (RAPCON) at RAF Lakenheath during the incident.

The RAF Lakenheath RAPCON had informed the crew of the KC-135R of multiple contacts along its route, but they were unable to visually identify any of them. The subsequently descended to 2,600 feet Mean Sea Level as part of their approach before air traffic controllers warned them about another aircraft directly below them. Around five seconds after getting that alert, the aircraft's own Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) also warned of a potential collision and advised an immediate 4,000 feet-per-minute climb. The crew performed that maneuver, leveling off at 3,600 feet Mean Sea Level when the TCAS indicated that the danger has passed.

The crew of the aircraft never visually saw the other aircraft or received any radio calls from another plane warning of a potential collision. The KC-135R landed at Mildenhall without incident.

#8, May 21, 2015: C-17A Globemaster III, 452nd Air Mobility Wing

One of the C-17A Globemaster III airlifters assigned to the 452nd Air Mobility Wing, an element of the Air Force Reserve, had a near-collision with an "unidentified remotely piloted aircraft" while on approach to March Air Reserve Base in California on May 21, 2015. The pilot said that the flying object came within 15 feet of the aircraft, passing it above and to the left.

#9, July 25, 2015: MC-130P Combat Shadow, 129th Rescue Wing

An MC-130P Combat Shadow combat search and rescue and tanker aircraft from the California Air National Guard's 129th Rescue Wing had to take evasive action to avoid hitting an unidentified object during a nighttime training mission on July 25, 2015 near Niagara Falls International Airport in New York State. While on approach to the airport, the pilot saw through their night-vision goggles an "object [that] appeared to be illuminated by a single external light]" and that looked to "be accelerating from left to right" in front of them.

"Immediately after seeing the object, the pilot took evasive action by executing an abrupt climb and roll to the left," according to the report. "Within one second of initiating evasive action the right wing of EA1 [Event Aircraft 1; the MC-130P] passed directly over the object."

The plane's navigator also reported having seen a "hot spot" on the aircraft's Infrared Detection System (IDS), which is meant to spot incoming missiles. No other members of the crew beyond the pilot said that had actually seen anything, but the incident was reported as a near-collision.

#10, Aug. 13, 2015: KC-135R Stratotanker, 452nd Air Mobility Wing

A KC-135R tanker assigned to the Air Force Reserve's 452nd Air Mobility Wing suffered a near collision with what the crew described as a quad-copter-type drone while flying a pattern around March Air Reserve Base in California on Aug. 13, 2015. The "remotely piloted aircraft" (RPA) passed by the tanker at a distance of approximately 100 feet below and 300 feet to the right of where it was flying.

It continued on in the opposite direction from the KC-135R and "disappeared from sight."

#11, Jan. 15, 2016: 45th Space Wing Wing

Members of the 45th Space Wing's detachment at RAF Ascension Island on the island of the same name, a territory of the United Kingdom in the South Atlantic Ocean, reported seeing an "unauthorized personal drone" flying within restricted Class D airspace at two separate locations on Jan. 15, 2016. One of these sightings was near the island's Long Beach within 3 miles of the "Ascension Auxiliary Airfield around the time a UK Royal Air Force (RAF) flight was scheduled to arrive." The RAF pilots did not report seeing the drone nor did it interfere with their landing, but the 45th Space Wing described the incident as having a "high accident potential."

#12, Apr. 21, 2016: EC-130J(SJ), 193rd Special Operations Wing

One of the EC-130J(SJ) aircraft assigned to the Pennsylvania Air National Guard's 193rd Special Operations Wing had a near collision with "a small drone/Small Unmanned Aerial System" on April 21, 2016. The aircraft was flying at around 4,000 feet Mean Sea Level and was in contact with aircraft controllers at Philadelphia International Airport.

The aircraft was returning from a training airdrop mission over the Coyle Drop Zone near Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey. "The crew initially thought they saw a bird, until they saw a flashing red light pass 3 ft above the left wing," the report notes.

#13, Jan. 25, 2017: 27th Special Operations Wing

On Jan. 25, 2017, an unidentified apparently private fixed-wing aircraft flying at around 10,000 feet Mean Sea Level under Visual Flight Rules (VFR) intruded into the R5105 range area near Cannon Air Force Base in New Mexico. The 27th Special Operations Wing is the main unit at that base and reported the incident to the Air Force Safety Center.

The aircraft entered R5105 at approximately 4:10 PM local time, had flown to an area west of the adjacent R5104A range area by 4:20, and Cannon's Radar Approach Control (RAPCON) had lost the signal from the aircraft's transponder by 4:37. Authorities at the base reported "no training interruption or other aircraft were effected [sic]."

The narrative also includes a typo suggesting this occurred in 2016, rather than 2017, but the 2017 date appears in multiple sections of the report, which itself was published on Feb. 1, 2017.

#14, June 9, 2017: T-6A Texan II, 12th Flying Training Wing

On June 9, 2017, a T-6A Texan II trainer from the 12th Flying Training Wing had a near collision with a "red unmanned aerial system" while flying at approximately 3,500 feet Mean Sea Level and around one nautical south of the Mobile Bay Bridge in Alabama. The aircraft was conducting a training sortie along an established route designated VR1024. "The UAS was spotted approximately one half to one wingtip away from the EA [Event Aircraft] and was co-altitude," the report added.

Naval Air Station Pensacola is identified as the "accounting base," indicating that the training flight originated or end there, or both.

#15, Nov. 1, 2017: F-15E Strike Eagle, 48th Fighter Wing

An F-15E Strike assigned to the 48th Fighter Wing, an element of U.S. Air Force's in Europe (USAFE), performed evasive maneuvers to avoid colliding with an "unidentified flying object" while flying near its home base at RAF Lakenheath in the United Kingdom on Nov. 1, 2017. "The object passed over the right side of the aircraft with an estimated minimal separation of 100 feet," according to the report.

#16, Jan. 20, 2018: T-1 Jayhawk, 47th Flying Training Wing

One of the 47th Flying Training Wing's T-1 Jayhawk training jets, with the callsign Rake 06, reported a near-collision with an "unidentifiable unmanned drone" while on approach to Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport in Arizona on Jan. 20, 2018. The incident occurred approximately 4.2 nautical miles from the airport's runway 25L. The aircraft was flying at approximately 2,400 feet Mean Sea Level, or around 1,300 feet Above Ground Level, at the time and flew right under the drone.

"The ECP [Event Copilot] was just able to maneuver below its flightpath as both EC [Event Crew] members called out the conflict when it became visible," according to the report. "The ECP initially thought it was a bird but both pilots identified it as a UAV due to the fact it was not moving (hovering) and they saw a small white steady light emanating as they passed underneath it."

#17, Feb. 7, 2018: T-38C Talon, 71st Flying Training Wing

On Feb. 7, 2018, a T-38C Talon jet trainer assigned to the 71st Flying Training Wing had a near collision with an unspecified drone while on approach to Vance Air Force Base in Oklahoma. The unmanned aircraft came with 300 feet of the jet trainer, but did not prevent it from landing safely.

#18, Feb. 5, 2018: 325th Fighter Wing and U.S. Navy T-6A Texan II

On Feb. 5, 2018, the 325th Fighter Wing, one of the major units at Tyndall Air Force Base, reported a sighting of "a sizable, black in color, drone" near the base. The pilot of a transient U.S. Navy T-6A Texan II from an unspecified unit that was on approach had spotted the unmanned aircraft "approximately 1,200 feet off his left wing" and alerted personnel at the base.

The T-6A was flying at approximately 1,000 feet Above Ground Level at the time and the pilot "noticed sun glint off of metal, this is when he realized the black object was not a bird and that it was moving to the southeast," according to the report. "The pilot reported the sighting to tower personnel and 325 FW flight safety followed up later with a telephone interview. Local search efforts for object or operator was negative and no military or Air Force Civil Engineering Center (AFCEC) drone operations were being conducted."

#19, Mar. 26, 2018: 45th Space Wing and Civilian Helicopter

On Mar. 26, 2018, the pilot of an unidentified civilian helicopter flying near Patrick Air Force Base in Florida "had a model airplane come within about 100 feet." The pilot of the civilian helicopter informed air traffic controllers at Orlando Melbourne International Airport of the incident, who appear to have relayed to the report to personnel at Patrick, after which the 45th Space Wing submitted a report to the Air Force Safety Center. The civilian helicopter had been in contact with personnel at Patrick during its flight, which took it through Class D airspace near the base.

All the other major details about this incident are redacted, but it appears to have led to the issuance of a formal Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) regarding the potentially hazardous situation.

#20, Sept. 10, 2018: C-130J Hercules, 86th Airlift Wing

One of the C-130Js assigned to the 86th Airlift Wing, part of U.S. Air Forces in Europe, had a near collision with an unidentified unmanned aerial vehicle while flying near Ramstein Air Base in Germany. The report describes the drone as "spherical with an approximated 6 feet diameter top mounted rotor."

#21, Mar. 6, 2019: T-1 Jayhawk, 12th Flying Training Wing

A T-1 Jayhawk training jet from the 12th Flying Training Wing reported seeing "a quad copter or non-traditional aircraft" that was "silver in color" while flying in Mississippi on a low-level training flight along an established route designated VR1022. "The UAS was stationary or near stationary" and was seen within one nautical mile of the T-1 hovering at around 1,500 feet Above Ground Level. The presence of the drone did not impact the training sortie or the aircraft's ability to return to base safely.

Naval Air Station Pensacola is identified as the "accounting base," indicating that the training flight originated or ended there, or both. The crew of the T-1 also contacted air traffic controllers at Trent Lott International Airport in Moss Point, Mississippi about the drone sighting.

#22, Mar. 13, 2019: C-17A Globemaster III, 445th Airlift Wing

A C-17A Globemaster III airlifter assigned to the 445th Airlift Wing, an Air Force Reserve unit, had to take evasive action to avoid a small drone during a training sortie on Mar. 13, 2019. The aircraft was flying at approximately 3,500 feet Mean Sea Level over Ohio at the time.

"The pilot flying (PF) observed a white sUAS [small unmanned aerial system] with either brown or black accents or propellers just below the EA [Event Aircraft]," the report notes. "The PF executed an evasive maneuver up and to the left to miss the sUAS, which was within 50 feet of the EA."

An unspecified "local police department" was informed about the incident afterward.

#23, Mar. 21, 2019: E-3B Sentry, 552nd Air Control Wing

On Mar. 21, 2019, an E-3B Sentry assigned to the 552nd Air Control Wing and using the callsign Sentry 60 reported that a "DJI style quad-copter/unmanned aerial system" passed by the aircraft approximately 20 feet below its number four engine. The plane was flying at approximately 3,000 feet Mean Sea Level near Tinker Air Force Base at the time.

The aircraft's pilot visually identified the drone, but their co-pilot never saw it. In addition to the informing personnel at Tinker about the encounter, the crew also told air traffic controllers at Oklahoma City Approach that "they came close to one." The E-3B eventually moved to a holding pattern at Tinker for approximately 20 minutes so as not to return to the area where they had seen the drone, before ultimately landing without incident.

#24, July 25, 2019: C-17A Globemaster III, 445th Airlift Wing

A C-17A Globemaster III airlifter from the 445th Airlift Wing, part of the Air Force Reserve, when departing RAF Lakenheath in the United Kingdom on July 25, 2019. The crew of the aircraft "visually acquired an orange colored small unmanned aerial system (sUAS) as it passed approximately 50' below the left wing" after climbing out to an altitude of 7,500 feet Mean Sea Level.

"After spotting the sUAS [small unmanned aerial system] the EC [Event Crew] marked their position and proactively reported the encounter to the controlling air traffic agency, which seemed unaware that the UAS was operating in the area," the report added.

#25, Sept. 9, 2019: LC-130H Hercules, 109th Airlift Wing

An LC-130H Hercules airlifter assigned to the 109th Airlift Wing, an element of the New York Air National Guard, reported a near-miss with a quad-copter-type drone while conducting a proficiency flight around Albany International Airport on Sept. 9, 2019. During a climb out at 1,100 feet Above Ground Level, the crew spotted the drone, which they said was yellow in color, approximately 300 feet away laterally and between 100 and 200 feet below the altitude at which they were flying.

They reported it to air traffic controllers and did not see it for the remainder of their flight, which concluded with the plane landing safely at nearby Schenectady County Airport.

Is this all?

When The War Zone published the eight Naval Safety Center reports in May, we immediately noted that it was curious that there were so few such records apparently available in the Navy's Web-Enabled Safety System (WESS) Aviation Mishap and Hazard Reporting System (WAMHRS). The number of incidents recorded in the Air Force Safety Automated System (AFSAS) also seems very small for a six-year time span.

The fact that only one of these reports deals specifically with the direct experience of the crew of combat jet of any kind – the Nov. 1, 2017 near-collision involving the F-15E Strike Eagle from the 48th Fighter Wing – and that only one other report – the Apr. 21, 2015 event that the crew of a KC-135R Stratotanker assigned to the 379th Air Expeditionary Wing reported – mentions the tangential involvement of a tactical aircraft also seems extremely odd. As The War Zone has noted in the past, tactical aircraft, especially fighter jets with more and more capable radars and other sensors, which will soon include the widespread deployment of Infrared Search and Track Systems, have already proven to be particularly well-positioned to spot and track small, unidentified objects.

There is the possibility that, or a high probability rather, that for whatever reason, additional reports are getting passed through separate or even classified systems, including those outside the normal reporting channels for military aviation safety incidents. This week, The Black Vault received a number of internal Air Force Emails via FOIA related to this topic, including one that said "Currently the Air Force is not working any specific guidelines for reporting UAPs."

"**Side note and off the record – we do have reporting instructions for Unauthorized Air Vehicles/Military Installation Airspace Violation, but that is more in the C-UAS realm," it continued. "That information is provided via OPREPs on SIPR."

"OPREP" refers to the Operational Reporting system, which, as this Email also notes, is contained on the Department of Defense's classified Secret Internet Protocol Router Network, or SIPRnet.

Now, regardless of how complete the reporting of incidents involving unidentified aerial objects in AFSAS is, the 25 reports that we do have still show some interesting trends. The most immediate of these is the steady rise of lower-end drone activity in general, something that has been an increasing issue for commercial air operations, as well. Regulators around the world, including the Federal Aviation Administration, have struggled to develop rules and guidelines that are practical and enforceable.

The scope of the reports that are available also shows that these are issues that are global in nature, even impacting areas as remote as Ascension Island. This only underscores the fact that small drones not only present real safety concerns, but also that they could be very real threats to U.S. military activities at home, as well as abroad. The proliferation of relatively cheap, but capable drone technology has already enabled non-state actors, in addition to the military forces of nation-states, to increasingly employ unmanned aircraft for surveillance and actual kinetic attacks on and off the battlefield. This is an issue we have been hammering on for years and it will rise to become among the most pressing strategic issues of our age, especially as more complex attacks become a reality and as the Department of Defense scrambles to play catchup to a threat they were astonishingly too incurious to recognize before it fully materialized.

The War Zone is continuing to dive deeper into this issue, and especially in terms of how it relates to the recent rash of UAP/UFO encounters that the military and the intelligence community is supposedly grappling with, via a number of ongoing investigations, some of which you will hear more about very soon.

Idol Worshipping Pope Francis Gives Three More Titles To The 'Virgin Mary', Of Course They Were Stolen From God Just Like The Name 'Holy Father' Was • Now The End Begins
by Geoffrey Grider

First let me say that the Roman Catholic ‘virgin Mary’ is not the humble and obedient Mary from the bible, not by a long shot. The Roman Catholic ‘mary’ is a ‘Queen of Heaven’ superwoman who is literally divine, and appears to have taken over much of the workload from her overburdened Son Jesus.  According to the Litany of Loreto, the Roman Catholic ‘mary’ is most renowned, the counselor, cause of all joy, without sin, queen of peace, and the comforter. And today, Pope Francis gave her three more titles as well – Mother of Mercy, Mother of Hope and Comfort of Immigrants. If most of these names and titles seems familiar to you, that’s because they are names and attributes of God in the bible.

“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:9-11 (KJB)

The real virgin Mary was not sinless, she was an obedient young woman who was visited by an angel, and was told God had selected her for a very special task, which she did beautifully. But Mary needed a Saviour just like every other sinner does, Mary performed no miracles, counseled no one, and performed no known function in the Church when it began. She was present in the upper room in Acts 2, but not in a seat of honor and she makes no remarks of any kind. Mary didn’t stay a virgin, giving birth to all these:

“Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.” Mark 6:3 (KJB)

So why does the Roman Catholic Church attribute all these miracles to her, and give her all these titles stolen from Jesus and the Holy Spirit? To get your focus off of the redemptive work of Jesus that can save you, and get you busy ‘venerating mary’ which has no saving power of any kind. The Roman Catholic Church is Satan’s masterpiece, the Catholic counterfeit, and it will damn your soul to an everlasting Hell. If you are counting on the ‘intercession of mary’ to get you to Heaven, you are already lost. Click here to see the bible’s path to the Throne of God.


Pope Francis adds ‘Mother Of Mercy’ to Virgin Mary

FROM CRUX NOW: The new titles are “Mother of Mercy,” “Mother of Hope,” and “Comfort of Migrants.” In letter dated June 20, Guinean Cardinal Robert Sarah, prefect of the Vatican’s Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, announced the titles would be added to the Litany of Mary, called the “Litany of Loreto,” which is usually recited during the rosary or on major Catholic feasts.

Addressed to the presidents of all bishops’ conferences worldwide, the letter said the move comes at the express wish of Pope Francis.

    The first new title is to be placed after “Mother of the Church,” the second after “Mother of Divine Grace,” while the third will go after Mary’s designation as “Refuge of Sinners.”

In the letter, Sarah said “the Church which walks along the pathways of history as a pilgrim towards the heavenly Jerusalem and enjoys inseparable communion with Christ her Spouse and Savior, entrusts herself to her who believed in the word of the Lord.”

    “We know from the Gospel that the disciples of Jesus had in fact learned from the very beginning to praise her as ‘blessed amongst women’ and to count on her maternal intercession,” he said, insisting that the numerous titles given to Mary throughout history are a “privileged and sure way to an encounter with Christ.”

Pope Francis has often emphasized the topic of mercy in the Church, most prominently through his 2015-2016 Jubilee of Mercy, and his own episcopal motto, Miserando atque eligendo, or, “choosing with mercy.”

He has also been a champion of migrants and refugees since his election in 2013, making frequent appeals on their behalf in his public audiences, and in his meetings with diplomats and heads of state. His first trip outside of Rome as pope was to the visit the Italian island of Lampedusa in 2013, where he met migrants detained at a large camp who had fled poverty and war in the Middle East and Africa.

In September 2019, he added a sculpture depicting a boat full of migrants to St. Peter’s Square. Marking the first new sculpture installed in square in over 400 years, it’s called, “Angels Unaware,” and depicts 140 migrants and refugees from different cultures and periods of history, including indigenous people, Jews escaping Nazi Germany, and Syrian and African refugees fleeing war and famine in modern times.

OUCH! 'Vaccination passport' coming, report says - WND

Even before the coronavirus pandemic, the European Union was developing a plan to boost confidence in vaccines that included combatting "myths," identifying opposition and even creating a "common vaccination card-passport" for all EU citizens.

The card, according to a "Roadmap on Vaccination" by the European Commission, is to be the subject of a proposal in as little as 20 to 24 months, reports the website OffGuardian.

The scope and power of various vaccination schemes has been under review since as early as 2018, and "the endpoint of the roadmap is, among many other things, to introduce a 'common vaccination card/passport' for all EU citizens," the website says.

The "passport" is to take "into account potentially different national vaccination schedules" and be "compatible with electronic immunization information systems," according to the EU.

It must be "recognized for use across borders."

The coordination for the card is the subject of a feasibility study, the report said.

OffGuardian said: "To underline the point: The 'vaccination roadmap' is not an improvised response to the Covid19 pandemic, but rather an ongoing plan with roots going back to 2018, when the EU released a survey of the public’s attitude toward vaccines."

The survey was released in a report called "State of Vaccine Confidence in the EU 2018."

"While this survey shows that a majority of citizens in the EU still believe in the importance, effectiveness and safety of vaccines, it has also revealed important declines in confidence in certain countries since 2016, highlighting the need for continuous monitoring, preparedness and response plans," OffGuardian said.

"In a number of EU countries, anti-vaccine groups, aided by social and mainstream media, are gaining traction and have started influencing politics and political elections. The examples of Sweden and Poland more generally illustrate how confidence can decline in any country, even those with optimal coverage rates and successful vaccination programs."

OffGuardian said that even health-care professionals were having doubts with certain vaccines.

That resulted in a recommendation for a plausibility study regarding "an EU-wide vaccination monitoring system," the report said.

The subsequent "Vaccination Roadmap" advocates spreading vaccine "understanding" while fighting off "vaccine myths."

The report highlighted :

    "The feasibility of developing a common vaccinationcard/passport for EU citizens"
    An "EU guidance for establishing comprehensive electronic immunization information systems for effective monitoring of immunization programs"
    And overcoming "the legal and technical barriers impeding the interoperability of national immunization information systems"

Last fall, a report called "Ten Actions Towards Vaccination for All" recommended "national immunization strategies" in every country and "strong surveillance systems."

It also tackles "the root-causes of vaccine hesitancy" and aims to "continuously generate data on the effectiveness and safety of vaccines and the impact of vaccination programs."

OffGuardian's report said: "One month later, in October 2019, Event 201 was held. For those who don’t know, Event 201 was a simulated pandemic exercise focusing on a zoonotic novel coronavirus originating in bats. It was sponsored by Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, the World Economic Forum, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation."

A report of The Event 201 pandemic exercise, which was conducted Oct. 18, 2019, warned "the next severe pandemic will not only cause great illness and loss of life but could also trigger major cascading economic and societal consequences that could contribute greatly to global impact and suffering."

It recommended that governments plan how "essential corporate capabilities" would be used during a pandemic, how stockpiles of medical supplies should be handled, how much travel should be allowed and how vaccines manufacturing should be supported.

"One month later, China reported the first cases of Covid-19," OffGuardian said. "To be clear here (and forestall any below-the-line arguments): this is not about vaccines, their effectiveness, safety or lack thereof. The point is that proposed COVID countermeasures, which have been presented to the public as emergency measures thought up on the fly by panicking institutions, have in fact existed since before the emergence the disease."

OffGuardian warned: "They already wanted to monitor your vaccination records and tie that to your passport, introduce mandatory vaccinations and clampdown on 'misinformation.' They just didn’t have a reason yet."

In a pandemic, no one wants to touch it. Why cash has become the new Typhoid Mary

“This note is legal tender for all debts, public and private.” That’s what it says right under “Federal Reserve Note” and “The United States of America.”

But legal tender won’t be accepted to play at one of the city of Los Angeles’ dozen public golf courses. Or for the $15 charge to enter the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Gardens in Arcadia. More than 30 Armstrong Garden Centers around California also ask for “touchless” payment options, as does the Beehive clothing boutique in Manhattan Beach and the Munch Company sandwich shop in South Pasadena.

The Almighty Dollar has lost some of its might in the time of COVID-19. While most struggling businesses will take payment in any form to make ends meet during the economic downtown, a minority reject cash, fearing that it could be a transmission vehicle for the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Some experts predict that the pandemic will accelerate a steady flight by American consumers away from dollars and cents.

“This crisis is clearly pushing us even farther away from using cash in our everyday legal transactions,” said Kenneth Rogoff, a Harvard University economics professor and author of “The Curse of Cash.” “And it’s for obvious reasons. No one wants to touch something you or someone else just touched. That’s not going to change any time soon.”

Dollars remain in record circulation around the world, in part as a perceived safe haven for investors and, not infrequently according to Rogoff, as the preferred vehicle for money launderers and tax evaders. But on Main Street, the use of greenbacks makes some retailers and customers flinch, and contrary to popular belief, there is no federal law that requires businesses to accept cash and coins, according to the Federal Reserve’s website.

Noshi Sushi in Koreatown, a cash-only business for decades, has begun taking ATM and credit cards and now completes nearly half its transactions with plastic, said manager Jacky Gomez.

At a Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf in Manhattan Beach, cashier Jennai Dreger notices how cash often comes scribbled with notations. “People put down their phone numbers and I see the area codes are from all over the place,” said Dreger. “And, I’m like, ‘OK, this money has been everywhere.’”

She much prefers the no-touch transactions when customers use the coffee chain’s mobile phone app. “I don’t have to touch their money. I don’t have to touch their card. I don’t have to touch anything. The only contact is between the scanner and their phone,” Dreger said. “And I am like, ‘Yes!’”

Sinnaca Bell of South Los Angeles delivers food for Postmates. He has noticed even before the COVID-19 crisis how cash would be stained, sometimes with what looked like blood. “If you have Venmo, or anything like that, you use it,” said Bell, 41. “Most people don’t really want to deal with cash.”

There has not been specific research on the danger of the coronavirus being transmitted via cash. A National Institutes of Health study found that SARS-CoV-2 remained infectious on cardboard for up to 24 hours. But germs picked up from surfaces can be eliminated by thorough hand washing. The primary means of transmission remains through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

That doesn’t make cash any less creepy to many of the consumers and workers who handle bills, with no way of knowing who has touched them before.

Kay Nam, owner of Current Events newsstand in Manhattan Beach, said she serves customers every day who leave cash and coins rather than take the money, and potential germs, with them.

“With the virus, some people don’t want to touch money at all,” said Nam, whose family has owned the business for 22 years. Some loyal customers also want to leave their change to help support a local business, including one regular who pays $20 for his $2.50 newspaper. Says Nam: “There are a lot of good people out there.”

Good intentions don’t equal safety, though, and most cashiers said they wash their hands routinely, sometimes after every transaction. Or they apply regular shots of hand sanitizer.

At El Tarasco, a Mexican food joint in Venice, cashier Maricela Moreno goes a step further. She takes each new bill offered to her and sprays it down with alcohol. She leaves the dead presidents lying atop a paper towel until they have dried, before returning them to the cash drawer.

Moreno laughs a bit at her money laundering (the literal and legal kind, that is) but adds: “Why not? Just to be safe.”

A shift to other forms of payment has been encouraged by government agencies, such as the California Department of Public Health, which suggests the use of debit and credit cards. Reopening plans for multiple counties also recommend “contactless” payment systems.

The retreat of cash comes with an advance of electronic payment systems like Square, created by Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey and PayPal, also the parent of Venmo.

PayPal added an average of 250,000 new accounts a day through April and now has 325 million active accounts worldwide, up from 277 million accounts a year ago. More than half of its accounts are in the United States.

“I think what’s happened with the pandemic is it’s taken a three- to five-year time frame that it would have taken for digital payments to hit a tipping point and fast-forwarded it to reach that tipping point, literally within months,” PayPal CEO Daniel Schulman said in an interview.

While some older consumers had clung to cash, the digital pay platform now sees the 50-plus age group as its fastest-growing demographic. “Before it used to be cash or checks. Now they are going to a payment platform to send money to the grandkids,” Schulman said.

Some businesses prefer cash to reduce charges from bank card companies. They also don’t suffer a tremendous penalty for holding the money outside of banks, for a time, because low interest rates would generate almost no growth. But there are hidden costs, like the higher rates of insurance paid by companies that carry lots of currency.

Much of the demand for cash in the United States comes from businesses that also save by underreporting their income and thus illegally reducing their taxes, said Harvard’s Rogoff. His 2016 book concluded that about 15% of individual federal taxes are never paid, even after audits, amounting to a $500 million-a-year loss for the U.S. treasury.

While many hail the shift to a cashless economy, others say that it raises equity concerns, because the poorest Americans have no access to digital alternatives. Much of the world, led by Scandinavia and Japan, has moved to assure virtually their entire populations have access to online payments. China introduced a digital currency this spring in four cities, paving the way to its becoming perhaps the world’s first cashless society.

But a survey by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation found that roughly 6% of the U.S. population, about 14.1 million adults, doesn’t have a checking or savings account, and thus can’t access funds online. That gap will have to be closed if America is ever to come closer to a cashless future.

Acknowledging the “bankless” community, San Francisco last year passed a measure requiring all businesses to keep taking cash. The policy remains in place, despite the pandemic.

For now, many businesses just want to reassure customers that their transactions won’t come freighted with a load of microscopic intruders.

For the first time since the Kargil intrusions of 1999, Indian territory is in the hands of foreign soldiers. Starting in the third week of April, more than 5,000 Chinese soldiers of China's People’s Liberation Army (PLA) have intruded into five points in Ladakh – four along the Galwan River, and one near the Pangong Lake.

While patrol intrusions from both sides are routine in areas where the Line of Actual Control (LAC) – the de facto border between India and China – is disputed, the LAC in the Galwan Valley corresponds to China’s official claim line.

That means that, in sending thousands of PLA troops three-to-four kilometres into the Galwan Valley, China has violated its own claim line and occupied territory that Beijing itself has traditionally acknowledged to be Indian.

This is not shaping up like a routing patrol confrontation, or even a temporary occupation of disputed territory of the kind that took place in Depsang in 2013, or in Chumar in 2014. This time the PLA soldiers are digging defences, preparing bunkers, moving in heavy vehicles and have reportedly even moved artillery guns to the rear (albeit in their own territory) to support the intruders, say the sources.

The Chinese have pitched close to a hundred tents at four points on the Galwan River between Patrolling Point 14 (PP 14) and another location called Gogra.

Indian troops in the area were taken by surprise when a large Chinese force crossed the LAC into the Galwan area in late April. Since then, Indian forces have not challenged or confronted the PLA.

Sources say the PLA is expanding its presence. There are fresh reports that the PLA has already initiated another infiltration into another sector in Southern Ladakh.

The Pangong Lake intrusion has been especially bloody for the Indian soldiers there. Sources say 72 Indian soldiers were injured in the confrontation and some of them needed to be flown to hospitals in Leh, Chandi Mandir and Delhi.

The PLA intrusions into Ladakh do not appear to be a localized operation, since they are spread across the area of responsibility of different PLA brigades and division. That suggests centralized coordination from at least the PLA’s theatre command.

Contacted for confirmation, senior officers in the army’s public information directorate declined to comment. Sources say the prime minister’s office (PMO) and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval are overseeing the Indian response.

At the local military level, which falls under the ambit of the Leh Corps Commander, there is little contact with the Chinese. It is learnt that the PLA has stopped responding to Indian requests for flag meetings under the mutual protocol termed the “Border Management Posture” (BMP). “It is a stand-off in which there is presently no communication,” says a senior military officer.

The unusual level of Chinese aggression is illustrated by an incident at the end of April when two Chinese helicopter chased off an Indian helicopter in which the Leh Corps Commander was surveying Indian positions near the Pangong Lake.

The army admits that there was an incident involving helicopters from both sides, but states it was a “coincidence” that the Chinese helicopters were there. The Indian Air Force (IAF) chief, Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria admitted in an interview this week that there was Chinese helicopter activity in the area, but claimed that the IAF was taking “necessary action”.

There is little clarity within government about why the Chinese have triggered this intrusion, along with another simultaneously in Sikkim. Some officials speculate that Beijing is punishing New Delhi for publishing a revised map of the former state of Jammu & Kashmir in November, which showed Aksai Chin – which both countries claim, but China occupies – as a part of India.

Another viewpoint holds that the traditionally peaceful Galwan River has now become a hotspot because it is where the LAC is closest to the new road India has built along the Shyok River to Daulet Beg Oldi (DBO) -- the most remote and vulnerable area along the LAC in Ladakh.

Along the 800 kilometre LAC in Ladakh, there have traditionally been just five trouble spots, where the two sides dispute the LAC. These are Chumar, Demchok, Pangong and two places near DBO. The PLA’s ingress into the Galwan River valley opens up a new and worrying chapter.

Chinese Soldiers Cross Into India as Standoff Ensues

Hundreds of Chinese troops entered Indian territory on Saturday reports the Times of India. The Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) soldiers breached India’s border in several locations in the Ladakh region of the northern Himalayas.

“Chinese had managed to come well inside the Indian territory and are also conducting aggressive patrols with motor boats in the Pangong lake,” Indian broadcaster NDTV reported. “The Chinese troops crossed 3 km into what India perceives to be its territory South East of the Galwan Valley in eastern Ladakh,” according to Indian news website The Print.

The report adds that the Chinese forces detained several Indian troops during the incursion. “An Indian patrol party was detained and later released by Chinese forces,” NDTV reports. The Indian army has refused to comment on the confrontation.

NDTV also reported that the Indian troops that were detained were a patrol squadron. They were later released by Chinese troops following a skirmish between the two sides. And although tensions rose, the situation was reportedly calmed after commanders representing both sides met at the border.

The Times of India reports that both sides have ‘dug in’ and India is showing no signs of ceasing their border activities. The report added that India is preparing for a long stand-off.

Televangelist Jim Bakker Fights to Keep Selling Sham COVID-19 ‘Cure From God’

Televangelist Jim Bakker is fighting the state of Missouri—and now a class-action lawsuit—for the right to continue peddling a phony COVID-19 “cure.”

The Missouri Attorney General sued the 80-year-old Bakker to stop him and his company from promoting and selling Silver Solution, a product his TV show falsely claimed could cure coronavirus, HIV, SARS, and other illnesses.

On Monday, Bakker filed a motion to dismiss on the grounds of First Amendment and religious freedom. That filing included a declaration from one of Bakker’s employees, who said the TV pastor feels “divinely inspired” to bring the silver mixture to the masses.

But Bakker is also battling a class-action lawsuit over his sale of the concoction, The Daily Beast has learned. The complaint, filed in late March by Missouri resident Ronnie Karin, accuses Bakker and his Morningside Church Productions of common law fraud, unjust enrichment and of violating consumer protection laws.

Karin said he purchased Silver Solution from December 2019 through March 2020 after Bakker’s TV show claimed the product could treat not only COVID-19, but also SARS, H1N1, and cold and flu symptoms.

“It makes it all the more egregious,” Tim Dollar, a lawyer for Karin, told The Daily Beast. “You have a situation where a product is already on the market and you seem to pivot its use to whatever the fear is, regardless of the scientific evidence.”

Karin relied on the bottle’s “all natural” and “clinically tested” labels. But, according to his lawsuit, “Silver Solution cannot treat or cure any disease, has not been clinically tested for its capacity to do so, and is not ‘all natural.’”

The Silver Solution bottle indicates it’s made of purified silver (50 mcg per 1 teaspoon serving) and deionized water, which Karin’s lawsuit claims is not “all natural” because it is “artificially created through a process of distillation or reverse osmosis.”

In answer to the lawsuit, Bakker’s legal team denied Karin’s accusations and said his claims are barred in part by the First Amendment. Reached by The Daily Beast, the lawyers declined to comment on Karin’s complaint.

“Each of the products offered on The Jim Bakker Show, including Silver Solution, are products that Pastor Bakker and Morningside feel divinely inspired to offer to the world.”

— Maricela Woodall, president of Morningside Church Productions

Bakker’s church isn’t the only one facing government crackdowns over dubious COVID-19 treatments. A federal judge issued an injunction against the Florida-based Genesis II Church of Health and Healing for its “mineral miracle solution” (MMS) which the FDA said “has a chlorine dioxide content equivalent to industrial bleach.”

Genesis II “archbishop” Mark Grenon claimed he wrote to President Trump about chlorine dioxide before the president floated bizarre, dangerous treatments during a press conference, suggesting that injecting disinfectants might fight COVID-19. On Tuesday, Australian media reported the country’s health officials are also warning about the dangers of MMS, as an international chapter of Genesis II Church continues hawking the “miracle cure.”

As for Bakker, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt sued him in early March to stop his TV show and website from promoting the supplement as a coronavirus cure and from selling bottles in exchange for $80 to $125 donations.

Bakker also received a warning from the Food and Drug Administration and a cease and desist letter from New York Attorney General Letitia James—weeks after “naturopathic doctor” Sherrill Sellman appeared on his show and claimed Silver Solution could “eliminate [the virus] within 12 hours.”

This week, Bakker’s attorneys filed a motion to dismiss Schmitt’s case, saying the TV preacher’s religious freedoms are being violated. That court filing included a declaration from Maricela Woodall, the president of Morningside Church Productions, which operates the preacher’s The Jim Bakker Show.

“God gave us this product, I believe.”

— Jim Bakker, on Silver Solutions and coronavirus

“Our sincerely held religious beliefs require us to encourage our partners to prepare spiritually, mentally, and physically for the second corning of Christ, and assist them in doing so by bringing experts to our broadcasts to teach how to accomplish this goal,” Woodall stated in the declaration.

According to Woodall, Bakker’s ministry believes products like Silver Solution “have been made available to this generation by God.”

“Each of the products offered on The Jim Bakker Show, including Silver Solution, are products that Pastor Bakker and Morningside feel divinely inspired to offer to the world,” Woodall added. “Such offerings are an integral part of Morningside’s mission and a vital part of how we interact with our partners to spread the Word of God.”

“God gave us this product, I believe,” Bakker said on his show in February, before asking whether the concoction would be effective against COVID-19. Sellman told Bakker the product had successfully been tested on other strains of coronavirus. (It has not, according to the FDA, which warned “colloidal silver is not safe or effective for treating any disease or condition” in a notice targeting Bakker and other silver companies. It’s not clear, however, whether Bakker’s product is specifically “colloidal silver.”)

“Silver Sol has been proven by the government that it has the ability to kill every pathogen it has ever been tested on including SARS and HIV,” Sellman said. (Silver Sol does not kill SARS or HIV, previous FDA notices show. In 2003, the agency warned “colloidal silver” could not ward off SARS, and in 2009, issued similar warnings about “ionic silver” treatments for H1N1. Last year, the FDA warned a company its “colloidal silver” was not approved to treat HIV.)

“People say, ‘Well, we don’t want you to get panicked.’ Well, the thing of it is, I want you to be prepared. Order it now,” Bakker concluded, according to one chilling mashup of the interview with Sellman.

One of Bakker’s lawyers, former Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon, said the televangelist “is being unfairly targeted by those who want to crush his ministry and force his Christian television program off the air.”

“The video recording of The Jim Bakker Show clearly shows the allegations are false. Bakker did not claim or state that Silver Solution was a cure for COVID-19. This case is about religious freedom,” Nixon said in a statement.

“Similar silver products are commonly sold health supplements, available at Walmart, Amazon, CVS, and GNC,” Nixon added. “Targeting a Christian pastor, who has been using and offering the product for the past 10 years, is not supported by the facts or the law.”

In response to Nixon’s claim, Dollar told The Daily Beast, “Freedom of religion protects the government from interfering in your theological beliefs. It does not allow you to commit consumer fraud.”

While a page on Bakker’s website still has a spot for “Silver Sol Specials,” the product is no longer being sold online or on his show.

“Freedom of religion protects the government from interfering in your theological beliefs. It does not allow you to commit consumer fraud.”

— Tim Dollar, a lawyer for a plaintiff suing Jim Bakker

Derek Ankrom, a lawyer for Bakker, told The Daily Beast that while Attorney General Schmitt has requested an injunction, the court has not entered one against Baker or Morningside Church Productions.

“Nevertheless, Morningside has removed all references to the Silver Solution products from its television broadcasts, website, and social media pages, and has suspended any plans to offer those products as it awaits further direction from state and federal agencies,” Ankrom said in an email.

Bakker and his ex-wife Tammy rose to fame in the 1970s and ’80s after building a multimillion-dollar Christian empire that included their PTL Club show—short for “Praise the Lord”—and Heritage USA theme park.

But in 1987, their high-rolling world came crashing down, after Bakker resigned from his ministry following reports that he raped his then-21-year-old secretary and paid her $279,000 to keep quiet. (Bakker claimed the sex was consensual.)

One year later, Bakker was indicted for wire and mail fraud, accused of diverting millions in church donations to bankroll a luxurious lifestyle that included multiple houses, cars and a private jet. He was convicted and served five years behind bars.

After the controversy with the silver snake oil, Bakker begged his flock for funding in the form of cash or check lest he and his wife, Lori, be forced to file for bankruptcy. He claimed his credit card companies have cut him off.

“You can’t use credit cards if you do give to our ministry at this time because there’s a situation,” Bakker said on air in April, according to the Kansas City Star.

“Your products are going to come to you,” Bakker added. “Every one of them will come to you, come right to your house, and if we can’t, we are going to refund. I will sell the buildings, parts of the buildings at Morningside in the long run if you give me a chance.

“Don’t let me have to file for bankruptcy.”

It Begins. California Officials Announce Program to Remove People with COVID-19 From Their Homes to Quarantine Centers (VIDEO)

And here we thought Democrats were against internment camps?
Guess not.

Ventura County officials in California announced plans to remove infected residents with the Wuhan virus from their homes and place them in quarantine centers.

On Wednesday, Ventura County Health Director Robert Levin announced that the forcible quarantines are underway and will continue.

    Robert Levin: Some of the people we find are going to have a hard time being isolated. If they live in a home where there is only one bathroom and there are three or four other people living there and those people don’t have covid infections we’re not going to be able to keep that person in that home. Every person who we’re isolating needs to have their own bathroom. So we’ll be moving people like this in to other kinds of housing that we have available.

As Victoria Taft pointed out Ventura County has 846,000 people and only 595 total cases since March.

Democrat Illinois Governor Pritzker Says Christian Churches May Not Reopen for a Year

Illinois Democrat Governor J.B. Pritzker told reporters on Wednesday churches in his state may not reopen for a year.

Pritzker must believe the First Amendment is optional.

As Cassandra Fairbanks previously reported an Illinois church filed a lawsuit against Democrat Governor J.B. Pritzker in April for violating the First Amendment and the state’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

The lawsuit, filed by the Thomas More Society on behalf of The Beloved Church in Lena, claims that the governor has a “hostility” towards religious faith.

Pastor Steve Cassell is seeking a temporary restraining order to stop him from being arrested if he holds a service at the beginning of May.

We now know that top US physicians based their COVID-19 plan based on garbage models from the UK.

The Washington Examiner reported:

    It could be more than a year before churches are allowed to resume their in-person gatherings, according to Democratic Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker.

    Pritzker announced a five-phase plan to reopen Illinois that gives guidance to schools, businesses, churches, and other religious centers about when they will be allowed to reopen. In phase three, gatherings of up to 10 people will be allowed. In phase four, gatherings of up to 50 people will be allowed. Gatherings of more than 50 people will not be allowed until phase five.

    During a press conference on Wednesday, Pritzker confirmed that churches will be held to the same standards and not be allowed to hold in-person services of more than 50 people until phase five, even if it takes more than a year to get to that position.

    “You know, that in phase three, there can be gatherings, church gatherings, of 10 or fewer. In phase four, 50 or fewer. So that’s the guidance that’s been given to me,” Pritzker said. “I’m not the one providing that guidance. It really is what the scientists and epidemiologists are recommending.”

The Romanians who fled communism say they will open their churches.

Now That Churches Are Closed With Weekly Services Moved Online, Google Begins Censoring 'Unapproved Sermons' And Deleting Their Accounts • Now The End Begins
by Geoffrey Grider

It was only a matter of time, and frankly, I am surprised this didn’t start happening sooner but here we are. First they force all churches to shut their doors, forcing a mass exodus over to social media so church services can continue. Then when everyone makes the switch and preaching starts resounding around the Internet, now tech dictators like Google are deciding what can and cannot be preached online.

“But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake. And it shall turn to you for a testimony. Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer: For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.” Luke 21:12-15 (KJB)

In the over ten  years that Now The End Begins has been online, we also have experienced the anguish and virtual blunt force trauma of being censored and blocked for preaching, teaching and posting bible truth. Facebook has blocked me in excess of 100 times in ten years. I am blocked right now yet again, and have to rely on our wonderful NTEB team members to do the posting for me. Thank God for faithful workers in the harvest field, I could not continue without them! The longer this coronavirus lockdown continues, the more we are going to see censorship of pastors and preacher who teach and preach the gospel of the grace of God. I say…to the fight!

“But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God. And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more.” Acts 20:24,25 (KJB)
Tech Giants Like Google Begin Censoring ‘Unapproved Sermons’ as Churches Are Forced Online Due To Coronavirus Lockdown

FROM CALDRON POOL: Churches are now employing popular social media and video sharing platforms to conduct their services and broadcast their sermons. But how will the tech giants and social media outlets respond, especially considering their tendency to censor unapproved messages? Well, it would appear straight-up banning churches isn’t off the table for some platforms, as a church in Moscow, Idaho discovered last week.

On Friday, Google suspended Christ Church’s app from the Google Play store after accusing the pastors of a lack of sensitivity and/or capitalizing on the current coronavirus pandemic.

    The church received a notice from the platform, stating: “We don’t allow apps that lack reasonable sensitivity towards or capitalize on a natural disaster, atrocity, conflict, death, or other tragic event. Your app has been suspended and removed due to this policy issue,” the notice added.

It’s believed Google was referring to Pastor Douglas Wilson’s short lessons on responding faithfully to the COVID-19 crisis, and Pastor Toby J. Sumpter’s sermon calling God’s people to humble repentance in the face of the pandemic.

Is this a glimpse at what’s now in store for the church online? Should we expect to see more censorship of church services? Will the platforms that we now depend on dictate what our pastors can and cannot preach on? Time will tell, but if the past is any indication of the future, I don’t think Christ Church will be the last church gagged.
