U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters in Seoul on Friday that the Trump administration is open to military action against North Korea as a last resort, and that the Obama-era policy of “strategic patience has ended.” All options are on the table.

Following Tillerson’s remarks Friday, President Trump himself issued the following warning to North Korea on Twitter:

“North Korea is behaving very badly. They have been ‘playing’ the United States for years. China has done little to help!” (Source:

Turkish interior minister: “Let’s send 15,000 migrants a month to Europe to shock them”

Turkish Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu has said Turkey could send 15,000 refugees to Europe to shock the Europeans following a recent diplomatic crisis between Ankara and Germany and the Netherlands that stemmed from the latter’s decision to bar Turkish ministers from staging rallies there.

“We have a readmission deal. I’m telling you Europe, do you have that courage? If you want, we’ll send the 15,000 refugees to you that we don’t send each month and blow your mind. You have to keep in mind that you can’t design a game in this region in spite of Turkey,” Soylu said at an event late on March 16, referring to a readmission deal between the European Union and Turkey to return migrants to Turkey who have illegally crossed the Aegean Sea to Greece. (Source:

Trump EPA Appointee Quits Claiming EPA Employees Have a Lack of Loyalty to the President

David Schnare, a member of President Trump’s “beachhead” team for U.S. EPA, is resigning from the agency, according to an internal email obtained by E&E News. “The backstory to my resignation is extremely complex. I will be writing about it myself. It is a story not about me, but about a much more interesting set of events involving misuse of federal funds, failure to honor oaths of office, and a lack of loyalty to the President,” Schnare said. He told The Hill on Thursday that a number of factors led to his resignation, including that some agency employees want to undermine President Trump’s agenda.

Beachhead teams are made up of temporary government posts meant to help settle a new administration at different agencies. (Source:

Remote tribe living deep in the Amazon found to have the healthiest arteries ever studied

A new study estimates that an 80-year-old from the Tsimane has the same vascular age as an American in their mid-fifties. Heart rate, blood pressure , cholesterol, and blood glucose were also much lower, probably as a result of the tribe’s lifestyle, according to the researchers. The indigenous Tsimane people, who live in the Bolivian Amazon, have the lowest reported levels of vascular ageing for any population.

Hardening of the arteries, known as coronary atherosclerosis, which leads to coronary heart disease and angina is FIVE TIMES less common than in the US, according to the research published in The Lancet. Unlike people in first world, the Tsimane survive on a diet low in saturated fats and high in non-processed foods. The main risk factors are age, smoking, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, physical inactivity, obesity and diabetes. (Source:

Daily Bible Verse and Prayer
by “Jolie”

“Be sober and watchful, b/c your adversary the devil walks around as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Pet. 5:8).
“Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4:7).

Heavenly Father, this is so true! A lot of people don’t even believe the devil is REAL. And they certainly don’t think he plays an active role in wanting to destroy us. But this is so far from the truth. Satan and his demons hate us each with a passion, and do all they can to steal, kill and destroy all that is good in our lives. Their ultimate goal is to get us so wrapped in lies and sin, that we end up in Hell with them. However, if we submit to YOU, Lord God, and commit to live our lives according to Your standards laid out in the Bible (ALL of Your standards), we will be able to resist the devil. Resisting the devil means that we say NO to sin. In every temptation: we have a choice. Will we choose to sin, or obey God? As we resist the devil consistently, however, he will flee from us! Lord God, please give us the stamina and determination to faithfully, moment by moment, submit to You and resist the devil! We love You Lord! In Jesus’s name, amen.

Another Best of the Web home run. Keep it going James. While the MSM is boring us to death about Ryancare, you keep on giving us the REAL headlines. Between Trunews and Z3 News we are well informed as current events fit hand in glove with Bible prophecy. All we have to do is connect the dots!

Perhaps the best thing about the Trump presidency is that if things get out of hand it will be Trump in charge if martial law is called which would trump (no pun intended) the MSM and all the other communists and anarchists. The only problem is if the Russians and Chinese ever attack us all our troops are over seas. Only Jesus can save us and Christians are holding a royal straight flush.

Whom is actually controlling the 6 media giants fermenting revolution in the United States against President Trump, is the “Deep State” aligned Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)—whose direct control of every news organization in the West was exposed this past year by Udo Ulfkotte, a German journalist and former editor of Germany’s prestigious newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, who publically admitted that all of the mainstream media was fake and said “we all lie for the CIA”—but whom, just prior to meeting with President Trump in January (2017), was assassinated.
