CNN and Russia Today are the only two media outlets initially reporting that one of our own US destroyers, The USS Truxtun is en route to the Black Sea. Russia Today seems to be poking fun at the mission calling it a “previously planned exercise” which is incidentally the exact same verbage being used by the Russians explaining their presence in the Black Sea. Russia has sunk, not just one decommissioned ship, but two in their attempts to block the only navigable entryway into the Ukraine territory of the Black sea. ~MKO for PBN
The US Navy guided missile destroyer, the USS Truxton, crossed the Dardanelles on its way to the Black Sea amidst the turmoil in Ukraine. The Dardanelles is a narrow stretch of water in Turkey that separates Europe and Asia. The Truxton still has to pass through the Bosphorus Straights in Istanbul before it reaches the Black Sea. The Truxton is part of the Arleigh Burke class of destroyer and is among the largest destroyers ever built for the US navy. It is designed as a multi-role warship with anti-aircraft, anti-submarine and anti-surface capabilities. The US military said on Thursday it was a routine deployment for “previously planned exercises”scheduled long before the current crisis in Ukraine. The USS Truxton is to carry out training exercise with the Romanian and Bulgarian navies, both members of NATO, which involve joint maneuvers including landing aircraft on ships. “Truxton’s operations in the Black Sea were scheduled well in advance of her departure from the US,” said Lieutenant Shawn Eklund, a spokesman for the US military. The Truxton is part of the George HW Bush Carrier Strike Group, which recently entered the Mediterranean and is training with regional navies. Ukrainian bloggers share the images of the nuclear aircraft carrier with the hashtag #Aquamaidan, in reference to Euromaidan, which was the epicenter of the anti-government protests in Kiev. The USS Truxton will join the USS Taylor as the only two US vessels in the Black Sea. The Taylor, a guided missile frigate, is moored in Samsun, Turkey after running aground in February. This comes as Poland’s defense minister, Tomasz Siemoniak, said on Thursday that the US air force will send 12 F-16 fighter jets and 300 service personnel to Poland next week to take part in a training exercise, whose size has been expanded in response to the crisis in Ukraine. The exercise will be centered on the Lask air force base in central Poland and was originally only to have involved transport aircraft. The US military also announced on Thursday that a further six F-15 fighter jets will be sent to Lithuania to help step up NATO patrols in the region. Source:
Two of my personal favorites, Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly lead in Paramount Pictures telling of ’Noah’. Lord willing we’re going to see it as a family. Films like Noah and Son of God are not only refreshing , but truth in action. Could it be that We the People are making an impact on Hollywood? Yes, I think so. Is Hollywood returning to more family oriented standards like eras gone by and awry? Amen yes again.
We at PBN, USDL are standing upon Truth as led of the Lord. What is not truthful in our opinion but is an attempt to cease the telling of the truth is following quote.
“Depicting prophets in art is a crime; not art, that is harmful to the image of prophets.” -Sheikh Sameh Abdel Hameed
Depicting prophets in art is a crime? But stabbing your daughter or wife because they embarrassed you is okay? Sharing the truth of scripture defined by the Lord as sinful? But holding prisoners and lopping of innocent heads for your god isn’t? Control is terrorism.
AT A TIME WHEN WICKEDNESS WAS GREAT IN THE WORLD SO WAS THE RESPONSE
God will not be mocked and has a response for this dark and dying world, His name is Jesus and He loves you and wants to know you. -DAO
CAIRO, March 7 (UPI) – Several Middle Eastern countries have chosen to ban director Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming epic Noah.The upcoming movie has come under fire because it contradicts Islamic law with its portrayal of a prophet on film. The objection is based on the belief that such depiction of holy figures cannot be accurate, and that actors cannot imitate the prophets’ actual behaviors and mannerisms. An inaccurate portrayal is thought to open the door for believers to then question that prophet’s behavior.
Censorship boards in Qatar, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates, upset by the depiction, reportedly informed Paramount that they will not allow a release of the film. Jordan and Kuwait are expected to follow.
Objection has been raised in Egypt as well. Leading Egyptian Sunni Muslim institute Al-Azhar is said to have issued a statement on Thursday that condemned the movie and called for the film to be banned. The institute said that such depictions are “contrary to faith and to the fundamentals of the Islamic Sharia,” and that Al-Azhar “renews its rejection to the screening of any production that characterizes Allah’s prophets and messengers and the companions of the Prophet [Mohammad].”
The movie has a tentative release date of March 26 in Egypt. Paramount insiders apparently said that the studio foresaw problems with the film’s release in Muslim countries.

Yes USA!!! Praying (silently or out loud) at work (during break time), reading the Bible or Torah at work, school (free period or just carried or placed on your desk), or any governmental (US Military active or non-active) or public place IS ALLOWED per our 1st Amendment US Constitutional RIGHT. No one is allowed to PROHIBIT or STOP you from freely exercising your 1st Amendment rights. No one. Not even our POTUS for he has sworn to uphold the oaths and laws of our land, particularly our United States Constitution.
But you may ask what about the rigid, non-breakable, rule of “Separation of Church and State? Isn’t that a law?”
Great question. I am glad you asked.
No. It has been misunderstood and the well-intentioned yet overreaching prohibition of our freedom to worship is 100% illegal. read more

CROSS PARTY GROUP OF PARLIAMENTARIANS WELCOMES SUGGESTION OF CLEMENCY FOR AMERICAN PASTOR IMPRISONED IN IRAN
The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on International Freedom of Religion or Belief welcomes recent statements by Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif with respect to Saeed Abedini, an American Pastor imprisoned in Iran. The group especially appreciates his statement about the “various clemency measures in Iran that can be introduced, [have] happened in the past, [and] can be introduced again in these cases”.
Homework for USA!!! Please watch, take notes even. Share with all whom you know to help them see the truth clearly without the cloud of illusory propaganda which always surrounds the SOTU when Barack Hussein Obama speaks. It’s usually a rerun of his last speech anyway, lets be honest people.
The video is under 5:00 minutes, if you are pressed for time please watch from 1:31 on!
This is the truth about capitalism in society:
“The record of history is absolutely crystal clear that there is no alternative way, so far discovered of improving the lot of the ordinary people that can hold a candle to the productive activities that are unleashed by free enterprise citizens.” Milton Friedman to Phil Donahue -~PBN
Americans who care about their country, their military, their families, and their very lives also usually care about the truth. The unanswered questions about what really went down on September 11, 2012 in Benghazi, Libya will not go away until the absolute truth comes out.
South Carolina’s savvy, stern yet steady Congressman Trey Gowdy says in his still highly relevant, short yet powerful “slap down” address to the media which took place in October of 2013,
“In conclusion Congress is supposed to provide oversight. The voters are supposed to provide oversight. And you are supposed to provide oversight. That’s why you have special liberties and that’s why you have special protections. I am not surprised that the President of the United States called this a “phony scandal.” I’m not surprised that Secretary Clinton said, “What difference [at this point] does it make?!” I’m not even surprised that Jay Carney said that, ‘Benghazi happened a long time ago.” I’m just surprised at how many people bought it!” ~Trey Gowdy
Additional questions that Congressman Gowdy asked, “Why was ambassador Chris Stevens in Benghazi? Why were the Americans the last flag flying in Benghazi, after the British had left and the Red Cross had been bombed? Why were requests for additional security denied? Why were no assets deployed during the siege? Do you know whether the president called any of our allies to request help? Why was Susan Rice picked to go on the Sunday talk shows and present the video story? Do you know the origin of the “mythology” that the attack was spawned by a video?”
We here at PBN will continue to do our part along with the rest of the media, however many of us are left that still believe in true investigative journalism, until the truth is told. Hurting family members of deceased and injured military and contracted civilian servants are authentic heroes. They all deserve answers and so do Americans. America is and we pray and hope we will always be “The Home of the Free and The Home of the Brave!” ~PBN
Hatred continues to flow from the radical left, this time in the guise of a Christian reverend. What gives Rev. Barber the right to say these disparaging things about Senator Scott? Because they’re both black? It sounds to us here at PBN that race-based politics are as strong as ever. –PBN A prominent NAACP official recognized Martin Luther King Day by labeling black senator Tim Scott a puppet for the Republican party. “A ventriloquist can always find a good dummy,” said Reverend William Barber II, the president of North Carolina’s NAACP chapter. The State reports that Barber’s remarks came in a speech in Scott’s home state of South Carolina. “The extreme right wing down here,” he said, “finds a black guy to be senator and claims he’s the first black senator since Reconstruction and then he goes to Washington, D.C., and articulates the agenda of the Tea Party.” Last year, Barber gained national attention leading the “Moral Monday” protests in opposition to North Carolina’s Republican governor, Pat McCrory. Scott is the first black senator from the South since Reconstruction. He dismissed Barber’s remarks as ”baseless and meaningless rhetoric.” “I will honor the memory of Dr. King by being proactive in holding the door for others and serving my fellow man. And Rev. Barber will remind me and others of what not to do,” he told the Daily Caller. Source: National Review Online
It’s about time. Many months later, the State Dept. finally comes clean. Anyone who stills believes this was a “out of control protest” needs to refresh their talking points. As we get closer to the midterm elections it will be interesting to see what truths the liberals reveal in an attempt to garner more moderate support. Only time will tell. –PBN
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration for the first time on Friday identified two militant groups in Libya, including one led by a former Guantanamo Bay detainee, as being allegedly involved in the attack in Benghazi that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.
The department designated the two branches of the Ansar al-Sharia in Libya, those in the cities of Darnah and Benghazi, and a third branch in Tunisia as foreign terrorist organizations.
It also named Sufian bin Qumu, the leader of the Darnah branch, and Ahmed Abu Khattala, a senior leader of the Benghazi branch, as specially designated global terrorists.
The Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi is still a political issue in Washington. Republicans in Congress criticized the Obama administration’s handling of the attack and the level of security at the diplomatic outpost.
U.S. officials have said that Khattala and an unspecified number of others have been named in a sealed complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, but it’s unclear what they have been charged with. No one has been arrested in the attack in which a group of militants set fire to the diplomatic mission and killed the four.
Qumu, who was released from Guantanamo Bay in 2007 and later freed in Libya, was described as read more
Saying that these garments are “conservative” puts it far too lightly. Why is it that liberals always point at the US first when it comes to women’s rights? If questioned, most liberals would tell you that it’s okay “because it’s their religion”. So then, why is it that fundamental Christians can’t believe that homosexuality is a sin without constant persecution? The double standard is, as always, astounding. –PBN
The way women dress is an important social issue in most Middle Eastern countries, where more conservative clothing is generally the rule of thumb.
When those who condone the murdering of the innocent and the open derogation of the substance of Faith this Nation has been built on, you know it won’t be long before the fall.
