God to Kim Jong Un - Let My People Go!

God to Kim Jong Un - Let My People Go!
There is little doubt that President Trump knows that nuclear weapons are not the only serious problem with the leader of North Korea.

Even with the difficulty of getting news, pictures and first hand testimony out of the rogue nation, enough information is available from secret sources, defectors and those who have escaped from NK to compile a clear picture of the worst human rights violating nation in the region.

Many of those detained, incarcerated, beaten and regularly tortured have as their only crime the fact that they are Bible believing Christians. Kim Jong Un, is indeed, the modern eastern version of Emperor Nero.

Masses Count on Tommy Robinson Not British Authorities to Keep Children Safe

Masses Count on Tommy Robinson Not British Authorities to Keep Children Safe
No British court can keep human rights activist Tommy Robinson behind bars for long.

Not because prison exposes Tommy to his enemies who can cause him bodily harm, as real as that possibility is, but because Tommy has already won in the most powerful court of them all: the court of public opinion.

Those Tommy’s activism is meant to protect are the most precious of all: innocent children.

Countering China’s Blue Water Navy

Countering China’s Blue Water Navy
Based on China’s massive military expansion over the last two decades, particularly the People’s Liberation Army’s (PLA) Navy, their goal is clearly to challenge the U.S. Navy’s dominance, not only in the Western Pacific, but globally.  In a recent hearing before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on 17 May 2018, that was clearly pointed out by two experts on the Chinese threat, Rick Fisher and Captain James Fanell, USN (ret). They explained how the Chinese Navy dramatically expanded from a coastal force to a global threat, capable of challenging the U.S. Navy’s dominant position in the Western Pacific today, and globally in the next decade.

The Entertainment Industry Is Killing Western Society

The Entertainment Industry Is Killing Western Society
We can, believe it or not, get by without Roseanne Barr, and for that matter without the rest of ABC and most other television networks.

Television networks,  masquerading as news providers,  are part and parcel of the Entertainment Industry and the entertainment industry’ s in sync with the progressive left which is incrementally taking away the freedom and liberty of an all too trusting public.

Why Voters Need to Care About More Water Bonds on June/Nov CA Ballots

Why Voters Need to Care About More Water Bonds on June/Nov CA Ballots
Droughts are naturally occurring; water shortages are government-created and political. Examples of this can be found in every water bond in recent history, put on the ballot by politicians, and passed by emotional voters.

California voters will be facing two more ballot initiatives claiming to be water bonds this year, totaling $13 billion. But the overall cost will be much higher for taxpayers. One water bond is on the June 5 ballot and a second one is on the November 6 ballot.

America’s Underground Water Pipes Are Facing An Alarming Corrosion Epidemic

America’s Underground Water Pipes Are Facing An Alarming Corrosion Epidemic
As the Trump administration and Congress continue to wrangle over a comprehensive infrastructure package, a new report warns that unless dramatic measures are taken, the nation’s rapidly declining underground water networks will imperil public health and safety.

Signs of stress surface daily in cities and small towns across the country as the roughly 300,000 water main breaks the U.S. suffers annually trigger floods and service disruptions, the report notes. The loss of water service is more than an inconvenience; it causes significant social and economic disruptions.

A report released in March by Utah State University’s acclaimed Buried Structure Laboratory titled, “Water Main Breaks in the United States and Canada: A Comprehensive Study,” points out that “a critical component to public health and economic well-being is our drinking water which is brought to the tap through an elaborate network of underground water distribution systems.” —More…

Emerging Market Meltdown Could Undermine Oil Rally

Emerging Market Meltdown Could Undermine Oil Rally
Saudi Arabia and Russia just destroyed the oil price rally, potentially putting an end to all the speculation about what the group might do next. But higher production doesn’t necessarily mean higher oil prices are entirely out of the question, and in fact, the oil market is still faced with a ton of uncertainty.

Higher oil production from the OPEC/non-OPEC group would seem to close off the higher-price scenario. But a “complete collapse” of Venezuela’s oil production could still push oil prices up to $100 per barrel, Bob Parker, investment committee member at Quilvest Wealth Management, told CNBC.

Questions We’re Often Asked: Aphids

Questions We're Often Asked: Aphids
You are admiring the roses when you notice what appear to be flecks of white cotton. Closer inspection reveals the stems crawling with green bugs: aphids. The white flecks are their moulted skins.

The roof of your car, parked under shade trees, is covered with a sticky coating. Lick your finger and the substance tastes sweet: aphids. The substance is called ‘honey dew.’ You’ve been shat upon from a great height.

Sniffing out real truffles

Sniffing out real truffles
At a cost of thousands of dollars per pound, truffles are an expensive food. The fungi are prized for their distinctive aroma, and many foods claim truffles or their aromas as ingredients. But some of these foods may actually contain a much less pricey synthetic truffle compound. To help detect food fraud, researchers report in Analytical Chemistry that they have developed a technique that discriminates between these natural and synthetic compounds.

Blackcurrant dye could make hair coloring safer, more sustainable

Blackcurrant dye could make hair coloring safer, more sustainable
Whether they’re trying to hide some gray or embrace a new or quirky color, people adore hair dyes. But some of these dyes may be harmful to humans and the environment. Now in a study appearing in ACS’ Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, scientists report that they have developed a natural, non-toxic hair dye derived from blackcurrant skins that is as durable as conventional dyes and capable of sustaining hair color through multiple washings.

Faith Leaders Object to Subpoena

Faith Leaders Object to Subpoena
WASHINGTON, D.C. -  Liberty Counsel filed an objection to a staggering subpoena from Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund (Lambda Legal), which represents the Human Rights Campaign and other plaintiffs in the case of Karnoski v. Trump. The objection to the subpoena was filed by Liberty Counsel on behalf of Dr. Ronnie Floyd, senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Springdale and The Church at Pinnacle Hills, and Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council. Floyd and Perkins have been targeted by these activists for simply participating in President Trump’s Evangelical Executive Advisory Board,  which the president established to understand the concerns of Christians and receive counseling on a wide range of issues.

The Only Way Back to God

The Only Way Back to God
If Jesus is the Son of God, if God became man and walked among us, if the incarnate deity suffered and died to pay for the sins of the world, if He descended into hell and took the keys of death from the devil, if He rose again from the dead justifying all who become one with Him, if He rose into heaven and anointed the ultimate altar with His blood offering up the payment for the fall of man, what is there that can be of more importance than that?

If out of all the millions of books ever written God wrote one book, one set of writings infused with His Spirit, and alive with His Word, what can compare with that?

You Eat Gar?

You Eat Gar?
Whenever folks on Dad’s Mississippi Delta farm saw my boyhood best friend and mentor Jaybird “whuppin’ gars” early in the morning, they hoped to be sitting at his supper table later that day. The old black man could cook anything to gustatory perfection, even garfish, which most folks consider inedible. Unchanged since the Jurassic Period, gars are bony on the inside with thick skin and scales on the outside.

In a nearby creek, Jaybird caught gars on trotlines baited with gar hors d’oeuvres: putrefied carp chunks. To determine if the catch was edible, he used a short piece of four-inch-diameter pipe. If a gar’s body was too thick to pass through the pipe, bones in his flesh would be difficult to chew, whereas bones in flesh of gars that passed through the pipe would be soft like cartilage, and therefore edible.

Federal reforms make environmental assessment process more uncertain, more political

Federal reforms make environmental assessment process more uncertain, more political
VANCOUVER—Environmental assessment has always been arbitrary and political and the federal government’s proposed changes (contained in Bill C-69) do nothing to change that, argues a new report released today by the Fraser Institute, an independent, non-partisan Canadian policy think-tank.

If anything, the reforms will increase uncertainty in the project approval process.
