Huge! ‘Life Insurance’ Bombshell! Hillary’s Aide Vanishes After WikiLeak Corruption Scandal Huma Life in Danger (Video)

Has Hillary ordered another ‘Hit’?!

The plot thickens in the Hillary Clinton criminal FBI investigation as leaked information aledges Huma Abedin kept the thousands of newly discovered emails in a folder labeled ‘life insurance’ on her home computer. Some are calling it Huma’s own ‘Deadman Switch’ to be activated if Hillary ordered her death. Meanwhile Huma hasn’t been seen on the campaign trail, at Hillary’s side, all weekend.



Alert: Will Just the Perception of #VoterFraud be All That Is Needed for Chaos on a Massive Scale?


Will the credibility of the 2016 U.S. election be undermined by Russian hackers? Or is this another reason for ISIS ‘migrants’ being flooded into the USA, to ‘vote’ for Obama’s Mini Me; Hillary Clinton?  As we witness unprecedented violence against the Republican Party, is this a prelude to complete chaos post-election should Donald Trump win? How safe are you and your family?

Lets examine a few voter-fraud options and possible outcomes to prepare for.

Another Prophetic Dream of an Attack on America! Prophecy Alert and Update! Not to Teach But to Impart!

Prophetic Dream of an Attack on America! Prophecy Alert and Update!

Another FASCINATING account of yet another prophetic dream, a dream of warning to heed and to inspire! Folks, this one is a DO NOT MISS and do share, please. Our time is short and the Great Commission is NOT a suggestion, it is a command.


Erick Enz joins me on this program as we discuss a dream he had last week regarding an attack made on the United States and the importance of seeking the Lord with all of our heart and obeying His voice.

The purpose of the program is not to teach but to impart, to reproduce the work God has done in my life into the lives of others.

God wants to use each of us to impact the world around us but the question is will we let Him start with us. Great Heavenly followers become great earthly leaders. God is no respecter of persons, what He does in one man’s life, He will do in another. Let it be the goal of all of us that we would become great Heavenly followers so God can use our lives to the utmost. – Andrew Foote, Program Host

Not Now, I’m Having FUN! And Even Better It’s New Year Eve!


-party-animal-masquerade-mask-2469-pLet’s Par-tay! Woohoo!!

I look back at my life having fun, joking around with the guys, playing and working with my horses, lazy and hot days lying on the beach, the sound of the surf and the crashing waves still clear in my mind. Friendships forged, some forgotten and laid aside. Then as I got older, learning about drinking and sex and not joking around with the guys so much; life got a bit more serious. But still fun. I was enjoying my freedom on the fast track.

One of the supervisors where I was working asked me to lunch one day, I was thrilled and excited. I thought I knew what he was up to, and figured why not? He’s a good looking guy, let’s party! So off we went. As we ate, I kept thinking to myself, “Is all this guy can talk about is Jesus?” …

Apollyon Rising: Lawmakers Approve the Display of Satanic Snaketivity Scene in Michigan | Plus, Demonic Mockery on the Loose! Now a Zombie “Natvity” Scene


Dec 23 2014





I actually cried when I saw this. It hurt to the deepest core; my spirit was deeply grieved. The absolute INSULT and BLASPHEMY is beyond my ability to express. With Tyrant O’s silence on this, he is approving of this horrific action! This policical correctness is total garbage and is incorrect to the core!! This is barbaric mockery!


Talk about a nightmare before Christmas

An Ohio homeowner was ordered by town officials to remove a Nativity scene in front of his house that featured zombies instead of wise men and a baby Jesus.

“I wanted a Nativity and I worked with what I had,” Jasen Dixon, who manages a nearby haunted house, told Fox 19. ”The neighbors don’t like it. My father hates it and anything bad that happens he blames it on that.”

The Nativity scene features life-size figures and a zombie baby Jesus, with pale skin and pure white eyes. At night, the figures are illuminated by red and green lights.

“I didn’t really pay it any attention until the different color lights came on, then finally the baby was put in the manger,” Dan Fluker, a neighbor, told the station.

According to documents obtained by Fox 19, Sycamore Township, which is outside Cincinnati, does not allow structures to be located in the front or the side yard to occupy more than 35 percent of the area. Also, the primary structure must be 3 feet from the street, and 6 feet from the house. READ MORE IF YOU CAN

A Word for Every Christian (Video)


A Word for Every Christian

March 30 2014

A word given while on our hike today.

Are you prepared?

“You are the chosen ones just as surely as I have formed the heavens, the earth and the seas.  I proclaim My word: evangelism.

This is to be your goal, My purpose; do you not know it?

Before the foundations of the earth I declared My day of salvation. I am the returning King; the Bridegroom comes for His brides.

I will pour out My Spirit as suddenly and with greater power as an erupting volcano.

I pour out the Refining Fire of My Spirit says the King of kings, Lord of lords!

Prepare. Prepare the harvest of souls.

Let your praises rise for My hearts desire is for all to know Me!

Let your praises rise!

I am here, My Spirit surrounds you; the love of My creation. My shinning…

The Most Difficult Surrender Possible!

Nothing like looking down both barrels of a loaded shotgun to bring everything into perspective.

March 18, 2014

As the momentum of fulfilling prophecy continues to increase, it sometimes feels exactly like that, face to face with one’s mortality while looking at the loaded weapon in front of you.  And the perspective I discovered while questioning my plan of action when faced with life or death circumstances, well I wasn’t altogether pleased with the memories that flooded my brain, there were too many regrets and “should’v’s”.

I have been taking daily stock of my priorities; evaluating, readjusting, and repenting. Making definite time for daily Bible reading, prioritizing my morning prayers and devotionals to the point that I now do my “morning” prayers as I go to bed for the night, getting a very early start on them. Why? Because the way things are going, most of my mornings I’m being shot out of a cannon with no time to spare and the distractions are tough competition. It works for me, I sleep better knowing that I’m braced for the coming day and that I’m falling asleep as a forgiven person with a clean slate since I begin my prayers with asking for forgiveness. God is ok with it too, He’s not legalistic about our prayers; what hour of the day that we pray at is inconsequential, the point is to pray, to communicate with Him.

As I go for my morning run I mentally and often verbally put on my armor, (Ephesians 6:12-18) then I move into praise and worship, then continue to expand  my plans and my responses for the  inevitable hard times coming ever so quickly. The plan for the inevitable  is what brought me to my knees and tearfully, mid-run today.

I had moved into the “I want to’s” in my conversation with God.  “I want to be a faithful servant, Lord. Please help me to be steadfast.  I want to surrender my all to You” …  when it hit me.

My children.

It was as though my heart was being pulled from my body. Oh, God, NO! I so desperately need to be close to my children, to have them near me during the tribulations to come! They need me, even though they are adult children, and I most certainly need them!  Oh, God this is the hardest surrender ever! But I surrender my all to You … I … and I choked on the words and broke down right there in the middle of the block, only a few miles into the run.

This was a commitment that I could not make lightly. Yet I knew that He had inspired my thinking to “go there”. Surrendering my all.

That meant to surrender my children; my parentage, my rights, my preference to be with them.

If I “bug out” when all the stuff hits the fan, that means going it alone. My kids don’t agree with how the world is shaping up and my interpretation of the events. They are still of the mindset that there’s still plenty of time; every generation thought they were the generation that would usher in the antichrist and all the horrors that that brings. Surely people thought Hitler was the antichrist and that WW2 was “it”, etc etc. I often worry that they are simply in denial.

During times of “miscellaneous” prayer, I felt that the Lord confirmed to me that my kids would not be participating in the end time evangelism that I will be participating in and that He would deal with them on His terms, for me to back off from trying to persuade them otherwise.

This was the first stage of surrendering my kids and I hadn’t realized it until today. See how God brings us gently to a difficult crossroad with such kindness?

One of my sons will be getting married this June and it has crossed my mind repeatedly that we just may not make it to June without a significant event changing the lives of every American. How would my son respond to my absence from his wedding?! Wondering if I should mail his gift early “just in case” since the wedding will be in another state 18 hours from where I live. Many sleepless nights on that one, I can assure you!

Yet, that was the second stage of surrendering my children and I hadn’t realized it until today.

So, am I at stage three in surrendering my children to God’s capable Hands? And if so, are there only three stages? I honestly do not know.

It is painful and even frightening. If ever there was a time for family to be together …

Ah, but bottom line I need to ask myself:  just how much do I trust my Lord and Savior?

I’m getting just a hint of what Jesus may have felt on that cross, when the sins of the world were placed on Him. When He was separated from God the Father, His Father, a literal part of Him, by those sins; the anguish and loneliness He must have experienced! “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” or “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

My heart goes out to parents with younger children. I pray that this post will encourage you to prepare. To prepare your heart, emotions, and to instruct your children on what to do and Who to call upon should the stuff hit the fan while you are at work or they at school, separated from their parents and their security. PLEASE prepare your family while you are able to! Do not wait for circumstances to reveal themselves, anything can happen at any time. Between mother nature, nations with crazy powers ruling over them, and spiritual adversities, anything can happen. They don’t need to know the horrible details if they are young, but they do need to know that their heavenly Father will guide and protect them in emergency situations when they can’t be with their family.

Parents, prepare your spiritual lives. There has never been a greater time of need to be in-tune with God than now. We all need to surrender to Him while it’s relatively easy to do, in preparation for really dire circumstances.

I’m learning that I can’t place situations or people in His Hands if I am are still holding onto them, as painful as it is to let go.

God’s love has no limits. He demonstrated that through Jesus surrendering to the humility of human existence and to the agony of the cross, revealing the fact that God’s love has no limits. The additionally cool thing is, He loves us all … individually and equally; He does not play favorites.

Do you know and experience His unending and faithful love towards and for you? It’s not complicated becoming an adopted child of the King of kings, Lord of lords. I invite you to surrender your all. Difficult, but not impossible through Him Who strengthens us:

Dear Holy God, because I am not perfect, I am a sinner that needs forgiveness and I ask You to forgive me. Please remove all deception that I have embraced knowingly or unknowingly so that I hear You only.

There is a soul-devastating false doctrine that is spreading and the consequences of believing this filth is spiritually lethal.

It is always time to be spiritually discerning but it has never been more necessary in volume than now. We were warned that in the last days, even the days before then, that there would be false teachers and prophets, Matthew 24:4,5 But the thing is, the intensity and increase of these deceits are exponential during the last days and we are in the last days, folks.

There is a teaching being spread that mankind is not the sole creation of God Almighty, that mankind was spawned from satan. When I speak of “God” this is the God that I serve, honor and speak of, I want to be crystal clear:

Becoming an End Times-Prepared Christian

February 13 2014

The necessity of self-discipline and the danger of flaunting one’s liberties can’t be over-emphasized. We must practice self-denial and self-control even in matters that are morally indifferent such as strengthening our bodies, storing food; essentially  in ALL areas of our lives.

“24 Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. 25 And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown. 26 Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air. 27 But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.”  1 Corinthians 9:24-27

‘Urgent’ world conference on Syria a must: Kerry

It’s urgent that an international conference, dubbed Geneva II, be called to set up a transitional government in Syria where Bashar Assad has lost control.

LONDON — U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and the U.N-Arab League envoy for Syria said Monday that an international conference to set up a Syrian transitional government must be organized urgently and held as soon as possible.

“There has to be a transition government, there has to be a new governing entity in Syria in order to permit the possibility of peace,” Kerry said. He said it was imperative to get the so-called “Geneva II” conference organized by a mid-November target the United Nations has set.

Kerry and envoy Lakhdar Brahimi spoke to reporters after meeting at the residence of the U.S. Ambassador to Britain.

“There can be, there will be, a political solution if everyone gets together and works for it,” Brahimi said. “Very soon we have to set a precise date.”

Syria’s civil war, now in its third year, has killed more than 100,000 people.

Kerry says calls 'urgent' for Syria transitional government: An explosion of weapons depot

Never in history has a war been covered with such a constant barrage of images of violence and war, such as this explosion at a Syrian weapons depot.

“We believe it is urgent to set a date, convene the conference and work towards a new Syria,” Kerry said.

He said that Syrian President Bashar Assad “has lost the legitimacy to be able to be a cohesive force that could bring people together.”

he planned Geneva II conference is aimed at implementing an agreement hammered out last year in the same Swiss city that calls for the establishment of a transitional government that would run Syria and prepare it for democratic elections.

Brahimi said he’ll travel to the Middle East this week to see representatives of all sides to try to plan and set a specific date for the meeting.

Kerry was in London on the last stop of a an extended two-week overseas trip that has also taken him to Japan, Indonesia, Brunei, Malaysia and Afghanistan.

Rand Paul: ‘There’s a worldwide war on Christianity, but the attackers must police themselves.’


There’s a war raging against Christianity, but the attackers must police themselves, says Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul

“From Boston to Zanzibar, there’s a worldwide war on Christianity,” the world’s most-practiced religion, he said Friday at the Values Voters Summit, an annual conservative gathering. The intensity of attacks is so high, he later added, that it’s “almost as if we lived in the Middle Ages,” a period that included the Crusades.

Today’s war is perpetrated by “a fanatical element of Islam,” Rand said, adding that most Muslims are not commited to violence against Christians. However, those who are number in the tens of millions, he said. And it falls upon Muslims themselves to take on their violent brothers.

Obama says ‘willing to compromise’ in long-term, but no fiscal talks now

President Obama used a lengthy White House non-press conference Tuesday to once again accuse “extreme” Republican lawmakers of holding the nation for “ransom,” while offering a somewhat nuanced framework for fiscal talks in which he’s “willing to compromise” — but not negotiate.

The president tried to stake out his position during a lengthy exchange with reporters in the White House briefing room. Even the nature of the event was unclear. Though it was not considered a formal press conference, the president answered questions from 11 reporters and spoke for over an hour.

The takeaway was that the president, while willing to talk with Republicans about “almost anything,” will not do so until they pass a spending bill and raise the debt ceiling.

“I’ve been willing to compromise my entire political career,” Obama said. “But I’m not going to breach a basic principle that would weaken the presidency, change our democracy and do great damage to ordinary people.”

It’s unclear how Republicans will navigate that stance, with the country in week two of the partial government shutdown. Their demand is that they get some concessions — like spending cuts — in exchange for approving both pieces of legislation. House Speaker John Boehner’s appeal on Tuesday was for Democrats to simply come to the negotiating table.

“It’s time for us to just sit down and resolve our differences,” Boehner said. “There’s no boundaries here. There’s nothing on the table, there’s nothing off the table.”

Obama, though, suggested he viewed that request as a trap — a forum where Republicans will seek concessions from Democrats without putting anything on the table.

Obama said Tuesday he’s willing to talk with Republicans about “almost anything” — once the impasse is over.

“I’m not going to do it until the more extreme parts of the Republican Party stop forcing John Boehner to issues threats about our economy,” Obama said.

The president’s remarks lasted longer than many of his formal press conferences; one August press conference lasted 52 minutes. The remarks showed Obama digging in on his position that he will not negotiate until the current pair of fiscal stand-offs is over. The president put increasing pressure on Boehner, suggesting he alone is responsible for the “cloud over U.S. economic credibility” as Republicans seek spending cuts in exchange for an increase in the debt ceiling.

The president likened the GOP’s stance to demanding “a ransom for doing their jobs,” and said he wants to ultimately put a stop to these semi-regular stand-offs over the budget — without mentioning that he and Senate Democrats have not struck a deal with Republicans on a bona-fide full-year budget in years.

“The greatest nation on Earth shouldn’t have to get permission from a few irresponsible members of Congress every couple of months just to keep our government open or to prevent an economic catastrophe,” he said.

Obama, who took questions from several White House reporters, also said he apologizes to the American people for having “to go through this stuff every three months.”

The president cited “Tea Party Republicans” in his complaints, and urged Boehner to hold a vote in the House on a spending bill, claiming such a vote would immediately end the partial government shutdown. Obama said Democrats would join with some Republicans to pass it.

“Let’s stop the excuses. Let’s take a vote in the House. Let’s end this shutdown right now,” Obama said.

Earlier in the day, Obama called Boehner merely to “reiterate” that he will not negotiate. “The president called the speaker again today to reiterate that he won’t negotiate on a government funding bill or debt limit increase,” Boehner spokesman Brendan Buck said Tuesday.

A statement from the White House clarified that Obama “is willing to negotiate” — once Republicans approve the budget and debt-ceiling increase.

The phone call underscores how little progress has been made in reaching a deal ever since Congress missed a deadline to pass a spending bill, triggering a partial government shutdown.

House Republican leaders appear to have eased off their demand that ObamaCare be pared back as part of any spending package.

House Republicans are introducing a bill that would actually create the negotiations Boehner is calling for. The bill would set up a team of House and Senate lawmakers from both parties to immediately start talks on the debt ceiling and other fiscal issues. The bill would also ensure pay for so-called “essential” government employees who are working through the partial shutdown.

“In a divided government, the American people expect us to work together,” House Republican Leader Eric Cantor said.

But Democrats immediately cast doubt on the idea, with one likening it to the “super committee” that failed to reach an agreement to avert steep spending cuts known as the “sequester.”

Rep. Xavier Becerra, D-Calif., questioned whether a new committee on the debt ceiling would produce similar results.

Though the partial shutdown was initially triggered by disagreements over a budget bill — and Republicans’ demand that it include changes to ObamaCare — lawmakers are shifting their focus to an Oct. 17 deadline to raise the debt ceiling.

Boehner and other GOP leaders are demanding spending cuts in exchange for raising that limit. But on this, as well as the budget, Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid say they will not negotiate.

Reid, though, said he would negotiate down the road.

“If Republicans want to propose a legislative way to make the (health care law) better or more efficient, Democrats are willing to talk about that. But shutting down the government and hoping that will make ObamaCare disappear is truly magical thinking,” he said. “Democrats are willing to negotiate — on the budget, on ObamaCare, you name it. And we’re willing to compromise. But first, Republicans must reopen the government and stop threatening a catastrophic default on the nation’s bills. They must respect the Democratic process.”

Democrats controlling the Senate, meanwhile, plan to move quickly toward a vote to allow the government to borrow more money, challenging Republicans to a filibuster showdown as the time remaining to stop a first-ever default on U.S. obligations ticks by.

A spokesman said Reid could unveil the measure as early as Tuesday, setting the table for a test vote later in the week. The measure is expected to provide enough borrowing room to last beyond next year’s election, which means it likely will permit $1 trillion or more in new borrowing above the current $16.7 trillion debt ceiling that the administration says will be hit on Oct. 17. It’s not expected to include new spending cuts sought by Republicans.

Banks Stuff ATMs With Extra Cash In Fear Of Debt Ceiling Breach

With just 10 days left to raise the debt ceiling and congressional Republicans threatening to force the government to default on its obligations, banks are taking some dramatic steps to prepare for the economic chaos that would result should the brinkmanship continue.

The Financial Times reports that one major U.S. bank has started stuffing its automatic teller machines with extra cash in preparation for a possible bank run from panicked depositors. The New York Times reports that another bank is weighing a plan to advance funds to customers who rely on Social Security and other government payments that could stop in the event of a default.

The FT said the moves are part of “a ‘playbook’ used in August 2011 when the government last came close to breaching the debt ceiling.” The 2011 debt ceiling episode produced serious economic harm, costing the country a million jobs and a knock on its credit rating. Despite the GOP’s stated goal of reducing spending and protecting taxpayer money, their 2011 debt ceiling hostage-taking added $19 billion in borrowing costs.

As banks dusted off their 2011 debt ceiling playbooks last week, the list of major economists sounding loud alarms about the consequences of a default was growing longer. Christine Lagarde, who heads the International Monetary Fund, said last week that failing to raise the debt ceiling “could very seriously damage not only the U.S. economy but the entire global economy,” and called a hike to the nation’s credit limit “mission-critical.” Mark Zandi, chief economist for Moody’s and a former adviser to Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) presidential campaign, warned that failing to raise the debt limit would bring a “very, very severe recession with no obvious way out.” The Treasury Department said the recession wrought by a default would be at least as bad as the 2008 crisis and possibly worse.

Despite these warning signs, Republican lawmakers insist a debt ceiling breach would be no big deal. Rep. John Fleming (R-LA) thinks Congress shouldn’t listen to economists because “many times they’re wrong.” Rep. Steve King (R-IA) remains certain that nothing bad will come of blowing past the October 17 deadline. Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) even thinks that financial markets would actually stabilize on news of a U.S. default. For his part, Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) acknowledges that default would indeed happen and be very bad, but says the only way to avoid it is for President Obama to adopt the Republican position on every major policy dispute of the past few years.


With just 10 days left to raise the debt ceiling and congressional Republicans threatening to force the government to default on its obligations, banks are taking some dramatic steps to prepare for the economic chaos that would result should the brinkmanship continue.

The Financial Times reports that one major U.S. bank has started stuffing its automatic teller machines with extra cash in preparation for a possible bank run from panicked depositors. The New York Times reports that another bank is weighing a plan to advance funds to customers who rely on Social Security and other government payments that could stop in the event of a default.

You should always have extra cash on hand just in case the systems goes down. Cash will be king at such time. But, if you don’t have cash on hand, pull some out of  your bank now. You do not want to stand in line at an ATM during a period of  panic, when cash withdrawals may become limited.

Shutdown Pulling People Out of Their Homes Lake Mead

As the Government Shutdown hits day 3, The Federal Government is now telling people who live in Houseboats on Lake Mead that they must leave.


Yesterday, I talked to a number of these people as they were being forced out of the National Parks that they call home. From people who live full-time in Houseboats, to Fulltime Rvers who call the backcountry their home, NPS has now started to target those who live in the parks.

Yesterday people were scrambling to figure out what they were going to do as park officials told them they were no longer welcome; many of them pay monthly fees to moor their boats on the lake, and for most of them this is their only home. I talked to a number of people who’ve lived out on Lake Mead for over 20 years who now have no place to go and no way to move their massive houseboats.

To add insult to injury, NPS officials at Lake Mead National Park actually took the time to pull out every single boat dock on the lake. Now people who wanted to retrieve their boats, are unable to do so.

Voices soaring in Hebrew, Christians in Jerusalem affirm God’s promise to Israel

The scene would have been unimaginable throughout the vast majority of Jewish history. They were cheering the Jews in the audience, singing in Hebrew, and proclaiming God’s love for the Jewish people and the Jewish state.

Row upon row of Christians shouting and swaying, fervently proclaiming their faith right in the heart of Jerusalem. But these Christians, on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, were not denouncing the scattered Jews in the room, or preaching of a time when control of the holy city would be wrested from Jewish hands.

rom Malaysia and the Philippines, the Netherlands and Ireland — even the West Bank — hundreds of Christian Zionists gathered in the Clal Building on Jaffa Road Sunday night. They had come for the 10th annual Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem, broadcast around the world by God TV, which reaches 900 million homes, according to its founder.

The diverse crowd was confident, joyous, articulate, and unashamed of its belief in the Bible as the literal word of God and its support for the Jewish people and the state of Israel.

The DPPJ began in 2002 at the height of the Second Intifada, as leaders in the evangelical Christian world met to create the burgeoning prayer movement. It has, in its short history, become the largest Israel-focused prayer event in history, according to organizers.

Every year, on the first Sunday of October, millions of Christian Zionists join together to pray for Jerusalem. The organizer’s goal this year was to reach 300 million participants. Most of the participants pray in their home country, but hundreds of worshipers came to Israel to participate in person.

Robert Stearns, the founder of Eagle’s Wings, is the driving force behind the event. A gifted singer and powerful preacher, the charismatic Stearns led the program, mixing humor with sermons and swelling songs of prayer.

“The conflicts that surround Jerusalem, the conflicts that surround Israel and the Middle East, touch our whole world,” he told The Times of Israel. “And so anyone concerned about the kind of future our world is going to have to believe that we have to work for peace in the Middle East, and that certainly comes through negotiations and through many different efforts. But maybe it’s also a good idea to take a day or more, a year, to sit back and spend some time in prayer and reflection to bring peace to the city.”

Stearns’s connection with Israel started when he volunteered at the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem, a Christian Zionist organization that sits in Jerusalem’s upscale Katamon neighborhood. He believes that a secure Jewish homeland will lead to a better future for all the peoples of the region.

“We understand the Jewish people’s right to their homeland, to live in peace and security in their land, and the need for all the peoples in this area to be treated with equity and kindness,” he explained.

Stearns has led all 10 days of prayer. “Baruch Hashem [praise God], we are growing every year,” he said, especially in East Asia. Worshipers from the Philippines, Japan, Malaysia, Korea, and Hong Kong made their presence felt in the hall, with pastors rising to the lectern to lead prayers in their native tongues.

While hundreds sang, stood, and danced together in Jerusalem, they were joined by many millions more around the globe. Over 300,000 churches in 175 nations participated, according to Eagle’s Wings.

The prayer guide distributed to participants instructed them to “pray for both Jew and Arab alike, and for all the inhabitants of Jerusalem.” It asked worshipers to pray for “God’s promised redemption” to come to the Jewish people, for Israel to be protected from terrorism, for Israeli leaders to act wisely, and for reconciliation between Christians and Jews.

“Bless the people of Israel with Your promise of redemption,” participants around the world prayed, ”shield them with Your love, and bring them renewed hope for their day of salvation. Guide Israel’s leaders and advisers with the light of Your truth. For Your name’s sake, I ask that You remember Your promise and bless the Land with peace, and its inhabitants with lasting joy. Amen.”

‘God has a blessing for not only Isaac, but also Ishmael’

Christian Zionists are regularly caricatured — often by liberal Jews — as uneducated, uncompromising fundamentalists whose support for Israel masks a desire to convert Jews and use their control over the biblical land of Israel to bring about the apocalypse.

There was not much Sunday night to give that characterization credence. Stearns insisted firmly that the conversion of Jews was not a factor in his passionate support for Israel.

“With great respect,” he explained, “I say it’s time to get over that. We’ve been here for thirty years, we’ve come during intifadas… We are not going to agree on every doctrinal point, or every theological point. But by and large the Christian Zionist community movement has a tremendous sense of respect for Jewish identity, and we are here to support and strengthen Jewish identity and a Jewish presence in the land.”

Even rank-and-file participants proved knowledgeable about Israeli politics. Pastor David Dekker, who has been a resident of Israel for thirty years working on Jewish-Christian relations, has three children, including two girls, who have served in the IDF. He and his children are fluent in Hebrew.

Margaret and Peter Jones, in from the United Kingdom for their second DPPJ and to volunteer in the city, claimed to not be especially fluent in the nuances of Israel’s political and strategic challenges. But they waxed eloquent on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s UN speech last week, and identified what they saw as key impediments to broader support of Israel in Europe- including British anti-Semitism. “I’m ashamed to see that,” said Peter. “Internationally, there are so many people against this small country. As proud as we are of our own country, we’re equally proud of Israel.”

The Joneses, at least, are against territorial concessions by Israel. “I believe very clearly that the land was given to the Jewish people thousands of years ago by God…through his covenant with Abraham,” Peter emphasized.

“We would not support any giving over of land,” added Margaret. “It does sadden me. “

Though many of the participants certainly believed that the land of Israel was given to the Jews, there was a great deal of concern and respect for the Muslims Arabs in the region. “We believe that God has a blessing for not only Isaac, but also Ishmael,” Stearns told the crowd to enthusiastic applause. “He’s an equal opportunity lover, and God’s peace will come when Isaac and Ishmael learn to live together.”

The theme of peace for the entire region was repeated throughout the night.

In fact, the only mention of radical Islam came from the one rabbi speaking at the DPPJ, Shlomo Riskin, chief rabbi of Efrat. He called on God not to “allow fanatic Wahabbi Islam — that stands for power and not for love, for Jihad and not for peace — to rule the world.”

“The word of God is stronger than the sword of jihad,” Riskin added to a standing ovation.

The only people pastors themselves denounced were Christians who advocate against Israel.

“Protect your church,” thundered Petra Helt, “from her church leaders. Who betray the roots of their church …who betray Zion, and give the place of your altar to thieves and liars. And protect the Christian people from their leaders when they falsely claim that Christians replaced the Jewish people.”

Though the event was unabashedly supportive of Jewish rights to the land of Israel and Jerusalem, not everyone praying for Jerusalem at the meeting was a Christian Zionist. Maher Canawati, a prominent Palestinian Christian businessman and city councilman in Bethlehem, first came to the event as a guest speaker two years ago. “Anything that goes toward peace… all the Palestinian people are with that.”

“I will be praying here tonight,” Canawati pledged, though he was not a proponent of Jewish sovereignty over Jerusalem like most participants. “I leave the final setup for Jerusalem for God. I believe that Jerusalem is for all the nations, capital of all nations. I will pray for the peace of Jerusalem no matter who is ruling over Jerusalem.’

Canawati was pro-peace as much as he was pro-Palestinian. “Palestinians should speak about the cause of the Palestinians wherever they can,” he explained. Though he doesn’t speak Hebrew well yet, Canawati said he had many Israeli “brothers.” “All of the Muslims love Jews. All of the Christians love the Jews. And the Jews love the Muslims and Christians. It’s not an issue of religion,” he said, rather optimistically.

‘You are the best friends Israel has in the world’

Broadcast live around the world, the 90-minute prayer meeting featured songs, sermons, and speeches. There was a heavy dose of Hebrew and Jewish terminology, with God often referred to by Hebrew terms as “Hashem — God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob”, and Israel as Eretz Yisrael. The Jerusalem Childrens’ Choir, affiliated with the ICEJ, sang in Israeli-accented Hebrew. “There is no other god in the world but you, there is no other salvation in the world but you,” they sang. “Shema Yisrael, hear O Israel, God is our God, God is one.”

Jerusalem’s Deputy Mayor Naomi Tzur gave a well-received speech on the city’s efforts to ensure that Jerusalem is a city of peace for all religions. “Ten measures of beauty were given to the world, and nine were given to Jerusalem, she quipped. “Of course, we got nine measures of many other things as well.”

Riskin, who founded the Center for Christian-Jewish Understanding and Cooperation, followed with a passionate address. “We didn’t reach out to you,” he told the crowd. “You, my beloved brothers and sisters, reached out to us.”

“You are the best friends Israel has in the world.”

The event brought supporters from around the world, including many from developing countries. A group of women from South Africa made the trip – their first — to celebrate their birthdays.

Robert Eustagio was in from the Philippines for his fifth visit to Israel, along with his pastor. He had won a free trip after a clip of him praying for Israel received first place in a video prayer contest. He and Pastor Francis Nicholas thought it was too good to be true until they received their tickets in Manila. About half their small church ended up making the trip, a stunning move considering the poverty of the country.

“Remember,” said Nicholas, “the average monthly salary in the Philippines is $300.” The congregants took loans to visit and pray for Jerusalem.

One of their requests is that God see to it that the Jewish Temple is rebuilt in Jerusalem. “We believe,” said Nicholas, “and we even give money to groups preparing for the Third Temple.” But he does not suggest Israel tear down the Dome of the Rock and al-Aqsa mosque, which sit on the Temple Mount.

“God should make it happen. I don’t know how; man can’t comprehend.”

‘It sure feels good to hear from people who do want you to be here’

There were a significant number of Jews at the event, many of them wearing yarmulkes, in the crowd. For many, it was their first prayer meeting with Christian Zionists. It did not take long for them to be won over by the intensity of the support and love for them as Jews, for Israel, and for God.

Hatikva, the Israeli national anthem, came on. The crowd sang it in Hebrew. Israelis sitting in the third row, skeptical and somewhat bemused until that point, took note. “Hey, there’s even Hatikva!” one of them exclaimed.

As the evening continued, the Israelis felt increasingly at ease. Helt gave a prayer for the Israel Defense Forces, similar to the one recited in synagogues across the world on Sabbath morning. When she asked God to “give to a Jew that what every Christian and Muslim and pilgrim enjoys in Jerusalem…the joy of walking freely and safely through all of Jerusalem, in the Old City and the New City, in the capital of Israel — and indeed that every Jew can live safely, walk safely, drive safely in all of Israel,” they stood and cheered.

And by the final song, the Israelis were dancing and clapping along with everyone else.

Natalie Solomon and Jay Schultz came in from Tel Aviv for the event. Solomon called herself “a friend and admirer of Robert Stearns.”

They run Tel Aviv International Salon, an organization that brings young Tel Aviv residents of all stripes together to discuss pressing issues. Stearns came in to speak to the group about Christian Zionism.

“It’s amazing to stand here as a Jew,” Solomon reflected, “who has fulfilled my dream of being in Israel, and to know there’s people that support that, when I know there’s so many people out there who don’t want me to be here. It sure feels good to hear from people who do want you to be here.”

“Now that we have friends, and they’re extending their hands to us, they need us to be here,” Schultz said emphatically. “They need to know that we’re grateful for their friendship. It’s as important for them to see us supporting them as it is for them to be supporting us.”

Dear Lord Jesus,
I am a sinner that needs forgiveness and I ask You to forgive me. I believe You are Savior and Lord Who shed Your Blood and died for my sins to be forgiven, and rose from the dead; You live forever. I turn from (repent) my sins and invite You Jesus Christ of Nazareth,t he Messiah to come into my heart and life as Savior and Lord. Please, help me to glorify You in all I say and do. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and personal Savior. In the all powerful Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth I pray. Amen.

North Korea warns US of ‘horrible disaster’, places military on alert

Warning of a “horrible disaster,” North Korea placed its military on high alert on Tuesday as it continued to ramp up the rhetoric against the United States and South Korea.

Citing “imperialist aggression” and American military training maneuvers in the region, along with the moving of an aircraft carrier and other U.S. ships into a South Korean port, a spokesman for the North’s military said they were reexamining their operation plans to, “keep themselves fully ready to promptly launch operations at any time.”

“The U.S. will be wholly accountable for the unexpected horrible disaster to be met by its imperialist aggression forces’ nuclear strike means,” the spokesman said in a statement carried by the official KCNA news agency.

“The U.S. should bear in mind that the Korean people and army are highly alerted to promptly and confidently cope and foil blatant provocations of any hostile forces in the world with its own powerful military muscle,” he added.

The reclusive communist country has often issued threats and in March they declared it was no longer bound by the armistice that ended fighting in the 1950-53 Korean War signed with the United States and China.

The impoverished country’s leader Kim Jong Un, has pushed ahead with his late father Kim Jong Il’s strategy of establishing North Korea as a nuclear state, no matter the cost in lost trade and international sanctions.

Defying international warnings not to build nuclear and long-range missiles and is believed to have enough fissile material to build up to 10 nuclear bombs, although most intelligence analysis says it has yet to master the technology to deploy such weapons.

The North’s large but ageing conventional military is also considered unfit to fight an extended modern battle although in 2010 it staged surprise attacks on the South that killed 50 people.

Seemingly used to its neighbor’s threats to attack, South Korea did not respond by placing their military on high alert.

The joint industrial complex in Kaesong is operating as usual, an indication that the North Korean threat has not reached any critical level.

Calling the criticism “wrong” South Korea’s Defence Ministry said on Monday the ships were taking part in a routine maritime search and rescue exercise.

The North’s announcement came a day after South Korean president President Park Geun-hye asked the president of China, North’s Korea’s only ally in the region, to persuade the country to renounce its nuclear program and focus on the economy, according to The Korea Herald.

During talks on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit President Park Geun-hye told her recently appointed Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping that close relations between their countries were vital to the prosperity of the region.

“When many North Koreans are suffering from malnutrition at the moment, I believe Pyongyang should not focus all of its resources on nuclear development,” she reportedly said during at the Ayodya Resort Bali hotel.

“I ask China to exert efforts to persuade North Korea to focus on its economic development. For the North to make the right choice, I believe close cooperation between Seoul and Beijing is of great importance.”

Marine task force on high alert after seizing al-Qaeda leader

The U.S. has placed a beefed-up Marine quick-strike force on high alert to respond to any security threats after U.S. commandos captured a senior al-Qaeda leader during a weekend raid in Libya, a U.S. military official told NBC News on Monday.

Eighty Marines have been moved to Naval Air Station Sigonella on the Italian island of Sicily, bolstering 100 who are already there as part of Special Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force Crisis Response.

The task force — which was created after the September 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans — is designed to deploy rapidly to respond to a threat throughout the region, including attacks on U.S. embassies.

The redeployment is “in direct relation to the raid” Saturday in Tripoli, the Libyan capital, in which U.S. forces captured Abu Anas al-Libi, who had been wanted in the 1998 bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, the official said.

U.S. interrogators specializing in high-value targets will question al-Libi aboard the USS San Antonio, an amphibious helicopter carrier in the Mediterranean Sea, U.S. officials told NBC News, hoping for a better picture of al-Qaeda activities in or outside Libya.

US will interrogate terror suspect aboard warship in Mediterranean, officials say

United States interrogators who specialize in so-called high value targets will question a suspected al Qaeda operative aboard an American warship without reading him his rights, U.S. officials told NBC News on Monday.

The suspect, Abu Anas al-Libi, was whisked off the streets of the Libyan capital of Tripoli over the weekend. He will be taken to the United States to stand trial in the 1998 bombings of the American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, the officials said.

Al-Libi will be in U.S. military custody for several more days, perhaps a few weeks, a senior administration official told NBC News.

The interrogation will be conducted by a team including representatives of the CIA, the FBI and the military aboard the USS San Antonio, an amphibious helicopter carrier in the Mediterranean Sea, the U.S. officials said.cia, fbi, USS SAn Antonio, sea,

By interrogating al-Libi, U.S. officials hope to get information about al Qaeda activities or pending operations in or outside of Libya, the officials said.

None of what al-Libi says during the questioning can be used in a trial. The FBI could read him his Miranda rights later and seek to question him again.

Once the military turns al-Libi over to the Justice Department, he is expected to be taken to New York, where charges are pending in the embassy bombings 15 years ago. Of the 21 men indicted in those attacks, eight have been killed, including Osama bin Laden; nine are in custody; one has died awaiting trial, and three are at large.

The USS San Antonio was headed for the coast of Libya in late August to take part in the operation to capture al-Libi, then was diverted elsewhere in the Mediterranean to support potential U.S. airstrikes against Syria, they said.

It was not clear whether the operation to capture al-Libi was delayed by the Syria plans. The United States threatened an attack on Syria, then pulled back after diplomats struck a deal to try to rid Syria of chemical weapons.

Anas al Libi

Secretary of State John Kerry, in Indonesia for an economic conference, told reporters Monday that the seizure of al-Libi complied with American law and that al-Libi was an “appropriate target” for the military.

He said that he hoped the world perceived that “the United States of America is going to do anything in its power that is legal and appropriate in order to enforce the law and to protect our security.”

Al-Libi was among the top remaining leaders of al Qaeda. His was among the first names placed on the FBI’s list of most wanted terrorists after the Sept. 11 terror attacks. A reward of $25 million was attached.

The Libyan prime minister, Ali Zeidan, said Sunday that he wants an explanation for the raid and “kidnapping of a Libyan citizen.”

The raid to capture al-Libi was one of two operations by American commandoes on Saturday.

U.S. officials said a raid on a Somali seacoast town was aimed at a high-value target from the al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab movement, but Pentagon Press Secretary George Little said officials were “not prepared to provide additional detail at this time.”

Militants from al Shabaab said that no such target was there.

“Normal fighters lived in the house, and they bravely counter-attacked and chased the attackers,” Sheikh Abdiasis Abu Musab, al Shabaab’s spokesman for military operations, told Reuters.

“The apostate Somali government is nothing in Somalia. No one asked them for permission to carry out the attack,” he said.

Al Shabaab, based in Somalia, claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack on the Westgate shopping mall that killed dozens of people in Nairobi, Kenya, two weeks ago.

The Somali raid was carried out by members of SEAL Team Six, the same unit that killed bin Laden in his Pakistan hideout in 2011, another senior U.S. military official said told The Associated Press.

Videos, The jellyfish are coming! Researchers puzzle over exploding population


A “jellyfish bloom” may sound pretty, but it can get ugly fast. A swarm of moon jellyfish from the Baltic Sea were sucked into the cooling pipes of a nuclear power plant on the Swedish coast last week, shutting down one of the three units for four days.

In 2008, another such “bloom,” glowing purple, wiped out an entire farm of salmon in Northern Ireland by stinging and suffocating the 100,000-strong school to death. Every summer, since the early 2000s, fishermen in Japan brace for swarms of Nomura jellyfish, tentacled monsters the size of a Smart Car. In Israel, where jellyfish routinely clog plumbing in power plants, some companies have set up designated summer jelly-watch squads.

And guess what? This jellypocalypse is our fault.

“There are systems in which jellyfish have increased,” said Mark Gibbons, a researcher at the University of the Western Cape in South Africa…

What’s the Big Deal About Heaven? Harps, clouds, angels…come on now.


Are you prejudice about Heaven? Picture this for a moment:

“…After satan and the unrepentant sinners are cast into the lake of fire, God is going to create a new heaven and a new earth. In Revelation chapter 21 John is speaking of the atmospheric heaven, not the dwelling place of God.  He saw a new heaven & earth for earth had past away. In  2 Peter chapter 3, the present earth will pass away with a roar & intense heat. Now, why would God do that?

“Because this present earth has been contaminated by mans sin. God will create a earth, a wonderful holy city; the New Jerusalem.

city of gold heaven“(Revelation chapter 21) The New Jerusalem is bigger than any city the world has ever known; 1,400 miles wide and height and depth. A glorious, massive outer wall, the Bible tells us. God is going to descend from the heavens…

The Maker of the Mountains I Can’t Climb

These are not ordinary times and I am ready to dive off into the deep end.

Finally, I have reached the “want-to”, the readiness, the acceptance of furthering my “wilderness experiences” and I am willing to dive into the deep end, even though I can’t swim a single stroke on my own. Really, I can’t swim. I can fake it with fins on my feet, otherwise I’m floundering and lost in the vastness of the ocean, definitely “without a paddle”.

Recently there have been monumental mountains/changes in my life.  I lost a sibling to suicide on July the 4th to name just one.  Amazing how this tragedy has paved the avenue for a renewed and reconciled relationship with other family members, as only God can arrange, making beauty from of ashes.  Two of us got together yesterday and it was a delightful day of reunion and of memories, discovery, jokes and sharing.  Loving one another again and delightfully so.

After arriving home last night, I realized that I had not attended to the Maker of the mountains that I can’t climb. I failed to be alert to His promptings. Don’t misunderstand, I did not ignore Him, I failed to even be listening for Him. The mountain I am currently facing is due diligence in sharing the Lord on a personal level rather than using the comfort of, and preferred method of writing about my God. It wasn’t until later that I even recognized that I missed a “golden opportunity” to pray with this person on a one on one level.  He places these mountains in the path of my everyday journey and either I don’t even see them or I view them as unclimbable, too hard, too big, well beyond me. These are the “deep end” obstacles and challenges of my everyday life. My spiritual wildernesses. When I am in His will, no matter how large the obstacle to climb, to overcome, He is my safety net! Why would the trustworthy God of love and goodness give me a task that I couldn’t climb, much less complete?

He doesn’t.

My old habits haven’t completely changed and I need to do something about it right now! Time is so limited! I am aware, I am very aware of a call He has placed on my life, which will include evangelism as the primary objective, survival secondary and I am VERY, VERY aware of my abject  inability to complete the mission on my own. Am I so full of myself that I would think that I am exempt from His commission? Ha! Although I am not fully equipped, I remind myself that He does not call me to a task that I can not complete, a test that I will assuredly fail; what purpose could that possibly serve?  He lives and His Spirit lives in me as my Enabler. How do I know with complete certainty that He lives and enables?

He healed me spiritually, led me to the foot of the cross through coworkers and I responded.

He healed me physically many times and continues to.

He instructs me, I need to listen; it’s a freedom-blessing and a choice.

He blesses me, I enjoy returning the blessing back to Him with praise to my High King.

He talks to me, I talk back.

He protects me and provides for me.  Daily I thank Him for this.

He walks with me, I treasure His companionship.

He knows my every thought yet loves me anyway. I love Him in return, more each day.

His mercies truly do endure forever, I am dependent upon them.

He comforts me. I rest at His Feet; tears-exhausted yet consoled.

He is the Potter, am I the compliant lump of clay?

As I write this post and gather my thoughts, my eyes slide to my left to the Bible open on my desktop; I was reading something earlier.  Where my eyes rest is quite interesting, considering the last line of thought that I typed about Him. Isaiah 58:1-5 talks about guarding against godliness that has no life.  We are instructed that godliness begins with a heart turned toward God, with a life seeking to be molded into the image of Christ; responding to the conviction of sin, and growing in love with the Lord.

Despite, or because of, the hardships I have faced throughout my years He is changing my mindset and He is softening my hard-life-toughened heart. Lovingly, He caresses the scars and folds back the layers of crust. What I find intriguing is, that even those who have had an “easy” life have their own invisible scars and layers of crust even at a minimal level.  It’s the byproduct of the contamination of sin, and every single person has sinned, no human is perfect, no matter how hard we try or how many good things we do. Yes, God is the Maker of the mountains we can’t climb on our own.  Oh, thank God for His priceless, yet free to us Gift!  Jesus Christ of Nazareth, God the Messiah hung on a cross of wood yet made the hill on which it stood. For our individual salvation and for His ultimate glory. What a precious, “I’m forever grateful” gift to each and every mortal.

Are you ready to dive off the deep end?  I finally am.

Get your feet wet first. Start here:

Lord God, I am a sinner in need of the only true Savior, Jesus Christ the Messiah. I am sorry for my sins and I am willing to turn from sinning. I believe You shed Your majestic Blood for my sins, died, were buried and rose from the dead. You live forever, victorious over death for You are God.  I invite You to be my personal Savior, come into my heart. Help me to live for You and to overcome the hard-set sins in my life through Your power in me.

Congratulations brothers and sisters! I love it when my family expands!

To help you in your walk, read the Bible, (which is getting to know Him!) talk to God in prayer every day. (He’s been waiting for you!) Be baptized, worship Him, get connected with a Bible-pure doctrine Christian church. Tell others about Jesus Christ the Messiah (not the prophet!) God desires that ALL be saved and live with Him forever!  (John 3:16,  2 Peter 3:9)

And there’s a short post about heaven if you’re interested:

Be blessed, my friends and ever-increasing family!

What would a U.S. default look like?

(Reuters) –

Nobody knows exactly when America would default on its bills if Congress fails to raise a cap on government borrowing. But the recent past gives a pretty good idea of how a default could unfold.

Even the Treasury Department can’t know how much tax revenue will come in each day after October 17, when it expects to hit its $16.7 trillion debt ceiling. Nor can officials anticipate exact costs, such as how many people will apply for jobless benefits that week.

Yet we can infer how quickly the government might run out of cash by looking at the equivalent of the Treasury’s daily bank statements from that same period a year ago.

What follows is a timeline that shows what a default might look like, based on daily Treasury statements from October and November of 2012.

OCT. 17

The Treasury Department exhausts all available tools to stay under the cap on borrowing and can no longer add to the national debt. Treasury expects it would still have about $30 billion cash on hand to cover its bills. Among the many inflows and outflows that day, it takes in $6.75 billion in taxes but pays out $10.9 billion in Social Security retirement checks. By the end of the day, its cushion has eroded to $27.5 billion.

OCT. 18 – OCT. 29

Treasury’s cash reserve quickly dwindles. Washington only takes in about 70 cents for every dollar it spends and is now unable to issue new debt to cover the difference.

The tide turns briefly on October 22, when the government takes in $3.5 billion more than it spends.

But that temporary gain is soon erased. October 24 is an especially rough day: Treasury pays $1.8 billion to defense contractors, $2.2 billion to doctors and hospitals that treat elderly patients through the Medicare program, and $11.1 billion in Social Security, while taking in only $9.6 billion in taxes and other income.

One possible wild card: Treasury could lose the trust of the bond market.

Even though the government cannot add to the national debt at this point, it can legally roll over expiring debt. Investors have the opportunity to cash out about $100 billion worth of U.S. debt every week but choose to reinvest it. If fear of default causes investors to steer clear of new debt offerings, Treasury’s finances could unravel almost overnight.

“It’s very hard to predict,” said Brian Collins, an analyst at the Bipartisan Policy Center, which helped Reuters with this analysis. “It’s the same thing that causes (bank) runs or credit markets to freeze.”

OCT. 30

Default happens. By the end of the day, the government is $7 billion short of what it needs to pay all of its bills.

So who gets stiffed?

Everybody, according to the Obama administration.

Treasury says it doesn’t have the ability to pick and choose who gets paid. The last time the government faced this situation in 2011, they planned to wait until public coffers were full enough to pay a full day’s bills before cutting any checks, according to a Treasury Department watchdog report from 2012.

That would mean delays for everybody: the local schools that are owed $680 million, welfare recipients owed $553 million and defense contractors owed $972 million.

Some companies that count the government as a major customer would take a big hit. “If you’re Lockheed Martin … it’s a big deal,” said R. Bruce Josten, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s top lobbyist.

Payment delays would grow longer as the default continues, sapping billions of dollars out of the economy within days.

OCT. 31

Things get really spooky on Halloween when a $6 billion interest payment to bondholders comes due.

U.S. Treasury bills are the foundation of the global financial system, a supposed risk-free investment that underpins everything from retirement portfolios to China’s export-driven economy.

A missed payment could shake that foundation. The United States currently pays some of the lowest interest rates in the world due to a strong history of repayment; those borrowing costs would almost certainly rise. Stock markets could tumble and nervous consumers could spend less of their money, further damaging the economy.

For the Treasury Department, this is where the truly tough decisions begin. Does the government pay bondholders in China or troops in Afghanistan? The Obama administration says it doesn’t have the ability to prioritize payments, but analysts are convinced it would at least try.

“Not making an interest payment on time is probably a worse way to default than not making other payments,” Collins said.

NOV. 1

At this point, the United States goes into truly unchartered territory.

In theory, the government could keep bondholders whole indefinitely because tax revenues are more than enough to cover interest payments, and Treasury pays creditors through a separate system than other obligations.

That would mean longer delays for everybody else. U.S. troops could fall behind on their rent payments, and seniors who rely on Social Security may have trouble buying groceries.

If, on the other hand, the Treasury missed the Halloween interest payment and Washington shows no sign of resolving the crisis, the creditworthiness of the country could suffer. That would throw the value of almost every financial instrument into question: the U.S. dollar, bank loans in Asia, the cost of crop insurance in Illinois.

“A default would be unprecedented and has the potential to be catastrophic,” the Treasury said in a report on Thursday. “The negative spillovers could reverberate around the world.”

Mysterious underwater circles created by 5-inch fish seeking love

Oct. 3, 2013 at 11:48 AM ET

Kawase et al
These “mystery circles” found off Japan are about 7 feet wide and are made by a 5-inch fish.

In 1995, divers noticed a beautiful, strange circular pattern on the seafloor off Japan, and soon after, more circles were discovered nearby. Some likened these formations to “underwater crop circles.” The geometric formations mysteriously came and went, and for more than a decade, nobody knew what made them.

Finally, the creator of these remarkable formations was found: a newly discovered species of pufferfish. Further study showed these small pufferfish make the ornate circles to attract mates. Males laboriously flap their fins as they swim along the seafloor, resulting in disrupted sediment and amazing circular patterns. Although the fish are only about 12 centimeters (5 inches) long, the formations they make measure about 2…

Man’s ‘Horrific’ Infection Sparks Seawater Warning

The widow of a Florida man who died from a gruesome infection says the seawater bacterium “creeped through his body like acid.”

Henry “Butch” Konietzky, 59, is believed to have contracted vibrio vulnificus while crabbing along Central Florida’s Intracoastal Waterway with his wife, Patty. The microscopic bug, which belongs to the same family as cholera, lurks in murky seawater along the Gulf Coast.

“I never heard there was even a bacteria in the water,” said Patty Konietzky, recalling how her husband thought he’d been bit by a spider before heading to bed. He woke up hours later with pain coursing through his legs. “He felt like there was some sort of burn on his ankle.”

By the morning,  Konietzky had lesions all over his body. And within 28 hours after arriving at the hospital, he was dead.

“He has never been diagnosed with anything ever,” Patty Konietzky said of her once healthy husband, calling the fatal infection “the most horrific thing I had seen in my life.”

Vibrio vulnificus can cause vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain if ingested through contaminated seafood, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But the bacterium can also invade open wounds and infect the blood in people with compromised immune systems, causing fever and chills, septic shock and blistering skin lesions.

Blood infections caused by vibrio vulnificus are fatal about 50 percent of the time, according to the CDC.

“It is extremely rare that someone without any medical problems — the picture of health — to get this infection and die,” said ABC News’ chief health and medical editor Dr. Richard Besser.

Henry Konietzky is the 27th Floridian to contract vibrio vulnificus this year and the ninth person to die, health officials told

“I can’t imagine going day by day without him,” Patty Konietzky said.

The CDC recommends the following precautions to avoid vibrio vulnificus infections:

  • Avoid eating raw shellfish
  • Cook shellfish thoroughly
  • Avoid food contamination with juices from raw seafood
  • Wear protective clothing when handling raw shellfish
  • Eat shellfish promptly after cooking and refrigerate leftovers
  • Avoid exposing open wounds to warm saltwater, brackish water or to raw shellfish

Livni vows to end Mideast conflict with final-status accord

Justice minister avoids commenting on Netanyahu’s UNGA remarks; denies working on interim agreement with PA.

Justice Minister Tzipi Livni

Justice Minister Tzipi Livni told The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday that she is aiming, in her current negotiations with the Palestinian Authority, to reach a final-status agreement to end the Israeli-Arab conflict.

In an interview to mark the The Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference in Herzliya on October 24, at which she will be a featured speaker, Livni said she had not changed her negotiating tactic from her previous talks with the Palestinians, which ended in 2008: There is no deal on anything until there is a deal on everything.

She denied repeated accusations by Likud deputy ministers Danny Danon and Ze’ev Elkin that she is working on achieving an interim agreement with the PA that would create a Palestinian state in temporary borders.

“My goal is an agreement that will end the conflict and all claims for both sides,” she said. “I have never used the term ‘interim agreement.’” Livni explained that a partial agreement would not work with the negotiating tactics used by both sides in her talks with the PA.

She said there could not be give and take if it is not clear that all issues will be resolved in the process.

“These tactics maintain our interests in the negotiating room,” she said.

Livni declined to comment on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s address to the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, which leftwing groups and politicians said did not include a firm-enough commitment to advance talks with the PA. She said she preferred cooperating with Netanyahu privately to judging what he says publicly.

“If there wasn’t hope of achieving peace, I wouldn’t be doing this,” she said. “I don’t want to raise false expectations. There has been a lack of confidence in the diplomatic process for years. Having low expectations can be advantageous. But I see we are generating hope and people are crossing their fingers for us.”

Likud MK Tzipi Hotovely said that if Livni’s intention in denying that she was seeking an interim deal was to ease the fears of her coalition colleagues on the Right, what she told the Post had only the opposite effect.

“I am scared because going for the whole pot is the most dangerous approach,” Hotovely said. “US pressure could make Israel give up everything without the Palestinians declaring an end to the conflict.”

Speaking at a right-wing rally at the Jerusalem International Convention Center, Hotovely advised Netanyahu to hold strong and not to give the Palestinian leadership the benefit of the doubt any more than he gives to the leaders of Iran. She paraphrased his UN speech to make her case.

“The Palestinians are also wolves in wolves’ clothing,” she said. “But they are fooling the world. They don’t want peace and peace can’t be made with them.”

Held under the banner “build more communities in Judea and Samaria,” the “One State for One People” rally featured calls by politicians and rabbis to get involved in stopping the prime minister from withdrawing from territory.

“To balance all the leftwing pressure Netanyahu is under from the official Left and the unofficial Left in the media and the legal establishment, the prime minister needs pressure from you,” Bayit Yehudi MK Orit Struck told the packed auditorium.

Flyers were distributed at the event by Mattot Arim organization, warning of the dangers of an interim agreement with the Palestinians.

Samaria Regional Council head Gershon Mesika called US President Barack Obama a villain. He complained that so-called price-tag incidents of vandalism against Arabs were overplayed in Israel and around the world.

“We didn’t return to our land to give parts of it to our enemies, but to build it and be built by it,” said former MK Rabbi Haim Druckman.

“If we dedicate our souls, we will merit the assistance of God.”

After three ministers canceled their participation in the event, Economy and Trade Minister Naftali Bennett made a surprise appearance and spoke about the connection of the Jewish people to their land.

He was heckled on his way out by activists who accused him of betraying the land of Israel.


Dear Lord Jesus,
I am a sinner that needs forgiveness and I ask You to forgive me. I believe You are Savior and Lord Who shed Your Blood and died for my sins to be forgiven, and rose from the dead; You live forever. I turn from (repent) my sins and invite You Jesus Christ of Nazareth,t he Messiah to come into my heart and life as Savior and Lord. Please, help me to glorify You in all I say and do. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and personal Savior. In the all powerful Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth I pray. Amen.</h3>
