Pakistan Says the US Is No Longer Its Ally — and It’s a Much Bigger Deal Than You Think
After the U.S. confirmed it would withhold $255 million in aid, Pakistani Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif said in an interview that the U.S. has failed to behave as an ally, and as a result, Pakistan no longer views it as one.  At the same time, China has already pledged to invest $57 billion in Pakistani infrastructure as part of the so-called “Belt and Road” initiative. Just last month, Pakistan announced it was considering a proposal to replace the U.S. dollar with the Chinese yuan for bilateral trade between Pakistan and China. What is becoming apparent is that Pakistan will look to cooperate with China both economically and militarily while giving up its reliance on Washington. (Source: theantimedia.org)


House Passes Legislation Renewing Controversial NSA Surveillance Program
The bill as passed by the House would extend the NSA‘s spying program for six years with minimal changes. Some privacy groups said it would actually expand the NSA‘s surveillance powers. Section 702 allows the NSA to eavesdrop on vast amounts of digital communications from foreigners living outside the United States through U.S. companies such as Facebook Inc, Verizon Communications Inc, and Alphabet Inc’s Google. The spying program also incidentally scoops up communications of Americans if they communicate with a foreign target living overseas, and can search those messages without a warrant.

Trump administration opens door to allowing Medicaid work requirements
The Trump administration announced Thursday that it will open the door for states to impose work requirements for Medicaid recipients, in a major shift that could affect millions of low-income people receiving benefits. A letter sent to state Medicaid directors Thursday said the move would help “improve Medicaid enrollee health and well-being through incentivizing work and community engagement.” The test programs, could make work, “skills training, education, job search, volunteering or caregiving” a requirement for Medicaid for “able-bodied, working-age adults.” It would not apply to those getting benefits due to a “disability, elderly beneficiaries, children, and pregnant women.” (Source: foxnews.com)


Republican House Bill Exchanges DACA Amnesty for Mandatory E-Verify, Legal Immigration Cut
A Republican-led bill that would give amnesty to the nearly 800,000 illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is the first legislation on the issue that would make E-Verify mandatory for all U.S. employers, thus barring illegal aliens from the American workforce. The Goodlatte bill fulfills another reform that Trump has demanded, which is ending the process known as “chain migration,” whereby newly naturalized citizens can currently bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the U.S. The legislation also fulfills Trump’s single most important campaign promise: The construction of a border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Russia reveals terrorist drones captured in Syria are so advanced they could pose a threat anywhere in the world
Drones used to attack two Russian military bases in Syria were so high-tech they were designed to offset jamming technology, were capable of launching precision strikes and could not have been made without foreign assistance, the defense ministry in Moscow has said. The attacks required satellite navigation data that are not available on the internet, complex engineering works and elaborate tests. Moreover the explosives they carried were stuffed with ball bearings and are only manufactured in a number of countries – including Ukraine. (Source: dailymail.co.uk)


CEO of JP Morgan Chase: ALL Cryptocurrency Will Be Under Government Control
Jamie Dimon stated in an interview, “The bitcoin to me was always what the governments are gonna feel about bitcoin as it gets really big, and I just have a different opinion than other people. I’m not interested that much in the subject at all.” When asked what he thought about the future of bitcoin during an interview with Fortune, Dimon said, “It doesn’t matter, it’s just not gonna happen,” before claiming that the government will make it illegal and begin jailing people for it. “There will be no real non-controlled currency in the world. There’s no government that’s gonna put up with it for long,” he said. (Source: thefreethoughtproject.com)


Twitter Engineers To “Ban a Way of Talking” Through “Shadow Banning”
In the latest undercover Project Veritas video investigation, eight current and former Twitter employees are on camera explaining steps the social media giant is taking to censor political content that they don’t like.  A former Twitter Software Engineer explains, “One strategy is to shadow ban so you have ultimate control. The idea of a shadow ban is that you ban someone but they don’t know they’ve been banned, because they keep posting and no one sees their content.” Parnay Singh, Twitter Direct Messaging Engineer, on machine learning algorithms, “you have like five thousand keywords to describe a redneck…” “the majority of it are for Republicans.” (Source: youtu.be)


Sam’s Club Fails to Notify Employees, Customers About Store Closures
The very same day Walmart announced it was raising the starting hourly wages to $11/hour, it was also closing hundreds of Sam’s Club stores nationwide and laying off thousands of workers according to numerous media reports. The Walmart-owned company announced the closing of 63 stores Thursday, but the message came too late for many employees who were never informed. No formal announcement was posted Thursday morning by Sam’s Club, but the company acknowledged the closures on Twitter with a general statement. (Source: infowars.com)


Days Before Massive 7.6 Caribbean Quake, The Ocean Disappeared In Locations Almost 2000 Miles Apart
Not only are these areas separated by less than 2000 miles but as we see in the google Earth graphic, these ‘events’ appear to line up as if the Earth is trying to tell us a story with the epicenter of the quake nearly aligned perfectly in between the ‘ocean disappearing’ areas. What we were witnessing may have been known as ‘Aguaje’ or ‘Syzygy Tides’ to fishermen in Ecuador. Yet as they reported then, the intensity of the creepy natural phenomenon was unprecedented and unusually strong. Something very strange is going on as this water drainage happened in both the Pacific Ocean as well as off of the Gulf coast of Florida, much closer to the Atlantic than the Pacific.

Obama at odds with community organizers over plans for presidential library
“Grass-roots activists, conservationists and academics on Chicago’s South Side say the Obama Presidential Center, as currently planned, does not do enough to benefit neighborhoods badly in need of economic revitalization,” said University of Chicago political scientist Charles Lipson. Mr. Lipson said the dispute over the center, like the objects and exhibits it will house, is a “deeply, personally revealing” reflection of the 44th president. Mr. Obama is “indulging himself” by building “a monument along the lakefront, where it will have a lot less positive impact than it could have had elsewhere.” It was Rahm Emanuel who introduced an ordinance that would allow the transfer of prime parkland in Chicago for the Obama vanity library.

Helen McCarthy

Author: Helen McCarthy

After graduating with a BFA, Helen McCarthy spent over thirty years in the advertising and entertainment industries as a designer and illustrator. Part of her job required a fair amount of research. About six years ago, the Lord led her to research current news events and share her findings. During that same period she and her husband were led by the Lord to relocate to a new area. This time became an enlightened experience of instruction, correction and refinement which deepened her relationship with the Lord and her devotion to serve Him. One of the many blessings she and her husband received was finding a home church that expanded their relationships and extended their outreach to the community to grow in faith and share the word of God.

Pakistan Says the US Is No Longer Its Ally — and It’s a Much Bigger Deal Than You Think ; One of the things that brought Rome down was they were no longer able to pay the bribes to the barbarians to keep them from attacking . No Muslim nation is our ally any longer than we can bribe them . I worked with Iranians in the 70s when they were one of our best allies . I have worked closely with many Muslims , when they are honest ( which is seldom ) they will admit they hate all other religions and intend to destroy them . The whole Muslim world prays for & looks forward to America’s destruction , even the ones that live here , no matter what they will tell you to your face , hate us in a way Americans can not understand .

I had to do work for a Muslim once too. He was really nice everyone liked him. was super funny and seemed “Americanized” too a degree. Paid me under the table. Insisted on it. Wanted to set me up with someone. Ugghhh. ( not happening) I tried to witness my faith to no avail of course. I was young at the time! He would challenge my faith constantly and say , ” Katie it makes no sense, why would God, have to send His Son to die for you? That’s a weak God. He wouldn’t do that. God is God Katie. “. Then one day he was singing in the back in his language and asked me wasn’t that a beautiful song? And I was like yes, it was beautiful sounding. He then told me as he stared deeply in my eyes that it was about all infidels burning in hell fire and something about Allah that I don’t remember. Wasn’t the best situation.

To be fair, Christianity also teaches that infidels burn in hell fire.

To be fair, I just want to distinguish the difference between the two. Christianity/ God’s word does teach that people who don’t accept Christ do indeed go to hell.
The difference is this.
I , as a Christian/ believer in Christ do not sing songs to people in sin about them burning in hell fire. I
Having a Muslim stare me in the eyes and say that was a little scary. Ok, moving beyond that…
As a Christian the bible does not teach me to brutalize and murder Muslims for their faith. I am not told to behead the infidels. We are not taught to force conversion to Jesus or die , ya know.
Bible versus Koran …..vast difference. Different teachinvs, different beliefs. We serve a God of love and free choice not a God of murder and rape. Bible/ Koran. God / satan. Simple as that to me.

Follow up with this. We don’t mow people down in the street, we aren’t taught to kill ourselves and our children. God doesn’t encourage us to blow buildings and trains up and so on. We also do t go into public places and do mass shootings . God’s not in that. So there is a big difference in what Christianity teaches. That’s not fair to God , that’s a slap in His face and I love him dearly. Big difference between Christianity and Muslim .

Well, the Bible does tell us to sing Psalms, and one of them is this:

Psalm 9:17
The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.

Here Katie. Don’t let these things trouble you.

Really now I see his problem. I was taught that The Greeks took all their knowledge from the Arabs. (E.g. Maths and science came from the Arabs, alchemy – chemistry, algebra, etc). This makes sense because his logic is really Greek logic, and I know this is how Muslims think about Jesus.

23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

Yes, but Muslims are instructed in the Koran to murder unbelievers, while Christians are instructed to lay down their lives for them.

Hi brother Mike , this is true and they both have nukes . I believe it was the twelve hundreds when the Muslims began to invade India and they have been at war since .

I’d like to bring a little clarity here, dear John and Mike.

While Pakistan is a Muslim-majority nation and, yes, India and Pakistan have been at odds with each other since their independence from the British, India is not at war with Muslims.

India too has a significant Muslim population, and while they may be strong adherents to Islam, the majority also remain fervently Indian. Yes, there have been religious riots between Hindus and Muslims; yes, there is persecution of believers from both communities (there are believers in both countries); and, yes, this is going to get worse as the world gets darker. But the dispute between India and Pakistan is not between Hindus and Muslims; it is a territorial dispute. There are some nefarious elements (in both countries) though who wish to spice it up by adding extremist religious sentiments to it.

India currently also has a no-first-use policy when it comes to nuclear weapons. Of course, that can always change, but that is not the reality today.

. Thank you brother Sujit , while what you say is true , so is this . Islamic India – The Biggest Holocaust in World History | SikhNet

https://www.sikhnet.com/news/islamic-india-biggest-holocaust-world-history

Mar 1, 2016 – Islamic India – The biggest holocaust in World History. The genocide suffered by the Hindus of India at the hands of Arab, Turkish, Mughal and Afghan occupying forces for a period of 800 years is as yet formally unrecognised by the World.

Brother John,

This is something I remember from my social-studies classes during school. And I was fascinated by history. Still am. So I know about the Muslim invasions. But war and genocide did not arrive in India with the Muslims. The rulers of the then princely states of India were already fighting among themselves. And the wars then were just as brutal (e.g., Kalinga war).

The brutality of the Muslim armies that invaded India is, no doubt, verifiable by history. But the truth is that godless behavior is intrinsic to fallen man irrespective of which man-made faith or false religion the fallen man subscribes to, unless the fallen man has been redeemed and transformed by the blood of the Lord Jesus.

Brother, light and darkness are manifesting in increasing measure in human vessels across the world, and unless the label a vessel wears is “a true faith in Jesus Christ,” the vessel will be a vessel of darkness. And while such vessels of darkness may have fought among each other in the past and may continue to do so, it does not make one vessel of darkness better than the other or less harmful than the other, for they will independently and jointly persecute the vessels of light.

Brother Sujit we know in the time of Alexander the Great , where the Indian King Porus ( 326 BC ) gave Alexanders Army a bloody noise , India has been made up of powerful warring States . Your Spiritual point is well made & I agree completely . Well said Brother !

Julianne Assange just reported the the Awan brothers are the key to bringing down the DNC. This is probably why Trump cut off relations with Pakistan. They were reading ALL of our mail. Big question is whether the Potus will live long enough to deliver death blow to the elites. Think JFK vs. CIA.

China is spending trillions of dollars around the global to build alliances and relationships. China is in the process of building a $60 billion, high-tech city in Nigeria. This city includes a school, hospital, factories, power generation, waste water treatment plant, roads, bridges and electrical transmission lines.

What does China hope to gain from this massive investment?

I don’t know, but it is clear that much of the world now views China as the dominant world power.

China is building colonies for Chinese and when the time comes they will exterminate the native populations and move right in. The Chinese communists are brutal and have no qualms about ethnic cleansing. They are using cheap credit to flood the world with inexpensive goods and buildings to gain an entrance for invasion. They did the same in Vietnam though it didn’t work so well then. Now however they have chemical and biological weapons that can be tailored to target only specific peoples,like say those with blue eyes, or genetic markers common to certain ethnic groups such as Jews for example. China is the model NWO society and anything they have a hand in is for evil make no mistake.
