More Jerusalem (AFP) - Israel celebrated 70 years since the country's foundation on Wednesday, lauding its improbable economic success and military prowess, but facing a range of political and security challenges. The anniversary of the proclamation of the state of Israel by founding father David Ben-Gurion began at sundown on Wednesday under the Hebrew calendar, but falls on May 14 according to the Western calendar. At the traditional Jerusalem torch-lighting ceremony kicking off what Israelis call Independence Day, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed what he called "real seeds of peace" he said were beginning to sprout among some of Israel's Arab neighbours.

United States Senator Rand Paul (Photo credit: Wikipedia) Senator Rand Paul warned Tuesday that a new war powers act currently making its way through the Senate will expand the President’s authority to declare war without the backing of Congress, essentially allowing the ‘Commander In Chief’ to wage war any where at any time. While the legislation has been presented as a plan to “reassert” Congressional power to “authorize where, when and with who we are at war,” the proposal for a new AUMF (Authorization for Use of Military Force) actually allows the president to declare anyone an ‘associated force’ of terrorists, without even disclosing the details to Congress or the public. The legislation is an update to the 2001 and 2002 AUMF for the war in Afghanistan, following the 9/11 attacks. “Unfortunately, the authorization they’re putting forward will expand the president’s authority to involve us in war,” Senator Paul wanned during an appearance on Fox News.

Republicans are INCAPABLE of nominating conservatives to the Court! Unlike Democrats!- So goes the notion that we need to elect Trump to keep the Supreme Court in check! Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch.Associated Press/Pablo Martinez Monsivais WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court said Tuesday that part of a federal law that makes it easier to deport immigrants who have been convicted of crimes is too vague to be enforced. The court's 5-4 decision — an unusual alignment in which new Justice Neil Gorsuch joined the four liberal justices — concerns a catchall provision of immigration law that defines what makes a crime violent. Conviction for a crime of violence makes deportation "a virtual certainty" for an immigrant, no matter how long he has lived in the United States, Justice Elena Kagan wrote in her opinion for the court. The decision is a loss for President Donald Trump's administration, which has emphasized stricter enforcement of immigration law. In this case, President Barack... Continue reading

CIA director Mike Pompeo secretly traveled to Pyongyang to meet Kim Jong-un over Easter as Trump confirms 'extremely high level' conversation took place between US and North Korea. READ MORE President Trump (pictured at Mar A Lago having dinner with Melania and the Japanese Prime Minister and his wife) says the United States has engaged in 'extremely high level' talks with North Korea and a summit with the country's reclusive dictator Kim Jong-un (bottom right) is still on track to take place in the next few weeks. Unless negotiations go offer the rails, Trump said the meeting will take place in late May or early June in one of five locations he revealed to be under consideration. 'We have had direct talks at very high levels, extremely high levels, with North Korea. I really believe there’s a lot of good will,' the U.S. president said.

By Michael H. Exton www.TheBibleComesAlive.com The Church Lady (Dana Carvey) "Saturday Night Live" exposing Satan Have you ever asked yourself the following question: If Jesus was NOT crucified on a Friday (which is indeed the case), then WHY has Satan deceived the world into believing in a Friday crucifixion/Sunday resurrection anyway? I mean, what does he have to gain in propagating this false teaching? And of course, it is certainly the Devil who is behind such delusions. For it is he who is called the “father of lies” (John 8:44), and it is he “who deceives the whole world” (Revelation 12:9). So, what does Satan hope to gain in popularizing this false tradition of believing that Jesus was crucified on a Friday anyway? Well, for one thing, by getting people to accept this false teaching he has gotten people to DENY that Jesus is truly the Messiah! For it was Christ Himself who said that the ONLY sign that He...

By Amy Martyn As consumers question whether privatized healthcare is in their best interest, Goldman Sachs says that curing hepatitis C caused a drop in one firm’s drug sales Goldman Sachs Group, Inc.(Photo credit: Wikipedia) In a report recently published for its biotech clients, Goldman Sachs questioned whether curing people is good for business. "Is curing patients a sustainable business model?" the company's analysts asked in an April 10 report about promising research into the human genome. The Goldman Sachs report, which was obtained by CNBC, does not answer that uncomfortable question directly. But it does point to pharmaceutical company Gilead Sciences as a cautionary tale. The company introduced a treatment for hepatitis C in 2015 that cured more than 90 percent of patients. In the years since, sales of the treatment dropped drastically, according to Goldman Sachs. While “one shot” cures are one of the most popular aspects of genome research, “such treatments offer a very different outlook with... Continue reading

President Trump’s strike against Syrian president Bashar al-Assad’s regime Friday night did not earn universal praise from his most vocal supporters. Ever since Trump indicated one week ago he would retaliate against the latest chemical weapon attack attributed to regime forces, he netted intense criticism from many on the Right. A lot of it came from sources that have always opposed intervention in Syria, such as InfoWars and social media personality Mike Cernovich. What was most interesting is that Trump’s decision received flak from prominent voices on his favorite news channel. Two primetime Fox News hosts expressed skepticism about the strike. Tucker Carlson spent most of the week attacking the idea of a strike as a betrayal of Trump’s “America First” campaign promises. Joining Tucker in skepticism of the strike was Laura Ingraham. While reports filtered in Friday night of American missiles raining down on Syria, Ingraham wondered what was the purpose of the strike. MORE Continue reading

E-4B Nightwatch allows US to maintain chain of command in the event of a major conflict The Nightwatch took off from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Indiana shortly after President Trump tweeted that missiles “will be coming” despite Russia’s vow to shoot them down and attack launch pads. Pentagon officials declined to comment on the deployment of the aircraft. Another of the ‘doomsday planes’ – a Boeing 747 E-4B was also stationed over the White House shortly after the 9/11 attacks. From everything Infowars understands, there is no “debate” on whether the Syria strike is happening or not. The only disagreements are over the number and location of targets to be hit. While the media appears to be blasé about the threat of World War 3 – preferring instead to focus on James Comey’s salacious new book – more sober voices are offering stern warnings.

Michael Bowman (Pictured) told a U.S. District Judge on Thursday that that he is not a tax protester and considers himself a true patriot An Oregon man who cites his Christian faith as a legal defense against the government in a felony tax evasion case has won the first round in court. Michael Bowman told U.S. District Judge Michael W. Mosman on Thursday that that he is not a tax protester and considers himself a true patriot, but refuses to give a dime of his money if its allocated to fund government subsidized abortions. Mosman noted in his ruling that prosecutors failed to prove Bowman tried to conceal or mislead the government by keeping a low bank account balance so tax collectors couldn't garnish his account to pay taxes, according to The Oregonian. 'Not everything that makes collection efforts more difficult qualifies as evasion,'' the judge added Wednesday. Bowman said that he has refused to pay federal income taxes since... Continue reading

People approaching death produce a crackling noise that signals they have around 23 hours left to live, a doctor has revealed. As part of the dying process, people lose their ability to swallow or cough, which stops them clearing secretions in their respiratory tracts, according to the infectious disease specialist Dr Daniel Murrell, from the University of Alabama, Birmingham. This causes them to emit a gurgling noise with every breath, which may make them sound as though they are choking. Although the noise may be distressing for their loved ones, Dr Murrell stresses the death rattle is not painful and is simply part of the dying process. The mother of seven-year-old Braiden Prescott, who died from cancer of the nerve tissue in September 2016, woke in the night to hear what sounded like him choking and knew he did not have long left.

Foreign currency reserves and gold minus external debt, based on 2010 data from CIA Factbook. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) How can China hurt us? Let us count the ways: First and foremost, they hold most of our foreign debt, 19 percent, or $1.17 trillion. By buying U.S. treasuries, China keeps our interest rates low, but it also gives China leverage over U.S. fiscal policy. What would happen if China stopped buying U.S. treasures or, worst still, called the loans? China also controls the supply of the world’s rare earth metals that are used in most of the high-tech products we take for granted like smartphones and hard drives. More importantly, these materials are necessary components for building smart bombs and military radar. It’s not that we don’t have any of these minerals. It’s just that our government shut down our only rare earth mine and allowed the Chinese to buy the company that supplied them. Lastly, China now has access to... Continue reading

Sen. Ted Cruz slammed Facebook for its perceived political bias against conservatives and asked Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg about it on Tuesday Sen. Ted Cruz, a Republican from Texas, slammed Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg during his Congressional testimony on Tuesday, accusing the social media platform of being politically biased. 'There are a great many Americans who I think are deeply concerned that Facebook and other tech companies are engaged in a pervasive pattern of bias and political censorship,' Cruz said. 'There have been numerous instances with Facebook.' One such example that the Texas Republican and former GOP presidential candidate cited had to do with the Trump-supporting sisters, Diamond and Silk.

Tucker Carlson blasted those who feel the latest gas attack targeting Syrian civilians is a call to declare war on Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad. Carlson said “talk-show generals” and war hawk politicians like Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) have “no real idea what happened.” He said that both Assad forces and those who oppose him have the capability to use sarin, as was used in a 2017 attack, or Chlorine gas that was used over the weekend. Carlson noted that shortly before the attack, President Donald Trump said he would like to see an end to American involvement in Syria. “How would [gassing civilians] benefit Assad?” Carlson asked, calling instant calls for a response “foreign policy by viral video.” Read more Continue reading

Washington and the US media seem to have no doubts about the Syrian government’s complicity in the Douma incident despite the fact that those who want America to stay in Syria have far more solid motives, Ron Paul told RT. The assertion by White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders that Washington is “confident” that Syrian President Bashar Assad is culpable for the alleged chemical attack on the Damascus suburb of Douma does not stand up to scrutiny, Ron Paul, former congressman and founder of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, told RT. “I don’t know what they are confident about. They are confident in telling lies and hope people will believe it,” he said. Mainstream American media don’t seem to need facts to back the White House’s claims, either. “Most of the time when a crime is committed in this country, the stations, when they are not sure, they carefully say: ‘this is allegedly’ – but they...
