.@realDonaldTrump Announces He is Running 2016 for US President “We will make America great again” [VIDEO]

Here is a quick summary not included in the above Reuters video but heard earlier today on Sean Hannity’s radio show:
Great speech given by Mr. Donald Trump. He hit the topics that matter to Americans: Jobs, military, American Exceptionalism, fair Trade… He promises to repeal Obamacare, build a wall on our southern borders and have Mexico pay for it.

Mr.Trump believes we should rebuild and support our US Military. Donald believes in keeping Social Security intact and demanding foreign governments such as China and others pay up their fair share of taxes when it comes to us not taxing their imported goods since we are unfairly taxed on our goods entering China. We think Donald should do away with Most favored nation status given to China for decades.

DR. Michael Savage radio talk show host, author speaker stated this evening on his show about Donald Trump’s US Presidential announcement on “Savage Nation” “I’ve asked him on my show. He is extremely busy. If I get to have him on my show, I will interview him as my friend, He is my friend…”I hope he does run. He’ll win by a landslide!…Run Donald run!…What a change that would be in the US Presidency if we had him (Donald Trump) in office…What a change that would be if we had Donald Trump in office…I pray to God he runs, he wins. Go Donald go!.” DR. Michael Savage ~SavageNation

Trump also believes our nation deserves the spoils of us winning in the surge in the Iraq war and finances from oil should go first to US Military families who have died serving our country, then to our current wounded warriors.

We’d like to hear more about Donald Trumps strategic long term plans about kicking ISIS butt as well as Donald’s view on faith, life of the unborn and restoring our dwindling Freedoms of Speech currently in the public square, specifically on college campuses where, we believe, lively civil debate should be unbridled.

We have always respected and loved Mr. Donald Trump ~ M. Katherine Orts & husband Pastor David A. Orts founders of USDefenseLeague.com & WorldWideBroadcasters.com

#RedAlert #RT! Your Medicine & Surgeon Taken Away by #TPP #ObamaTrade [VIDEO]

Expect all US & Global access to generic medication and access to lifesaving surgeries to disappear completely if the new trade agreement, known as Trans-Pacific Trade Pact (TPP) goes through Congress as law. Our US patents for medicine and even surgical techniques will become renewably extended at 20 year intervals, making affordable access inaccessible to the majority of patients in the United States and around the globe..

#TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) future in anyone’s hands will be potentially life threatening for everyone who needs generic alternatives for medicines because they will not be available any longer if this indeed goes through.

Under the aforementioned, recently declassified, yet still secret to the US public, international TPP agreement, US & Global International Medical Patents will be indefinitely renewable at the 20 year mark for most any reason by the Tradenamed Patent holder, including dosage changes or any modifications to the original patent. Even surgical techniques will become renewably patentable making life saving medicines and surgeries available to only the wealthiest 99% in every nation on the globe.

We ask, why have only about 2000 people, so far, seen this video (below) out of our actual total US population of 370 million (including 40M illegal and alleged foreign undocumented Islamic hostile Muslim immigrants located in Islamic Jihadist training camps on US soil.) ~ M.

#NewYork #NewJersey Marines Landed at NJ Grammar School Prior to Start of #JadeHelm15 #USMilitary Excercises

Published on May 25, 2015, by Gary Franchi

NEW JERSEY | In a scene that could have been pulled from the movie Red Dawn, the Marines of Special-Purpose Marine Air Ground Task Force-New York landed on the baseball diamond of the Orange Avenue School in New Jersey. And with parents and teachers in tow smiling students adorned military hardware and toured the weapons of war.

Clearly conditioning the public to accept a military presence when the collapse occurs, this public school landing was only one part of a larger annual East Coast domestic military exercise consisting of 1800 Marines, sailors, and Coast Guardsmen.

This exercise is currently underway adding New York and New Jersey to the list of active drills while Jade Helm 15 is still months away.

That’s my take. What is yours? Let me know in the comments below.

.@FBI Was Engineer Knocked Out Before #Amtrak188 Crash? Witness Saw Shadowy Figure Leaving Scene of Derailment [AUDIO/VIDEO]

Brandon.BostianIn America, all are innocent until proven guilty. The Amtrak train engineer, Brandon Bostian, who remembers nothing preceding the Amtrak #188 derailment and violent crash may have been knocked out by a projectile shot or rock thrown, shattering through the train’s front windshield. The FBI is examining the new witnesses details as well as the Amtrak train’s windshield after employees reported projectiles thrown at other trains. Two other trains experienced shattered windows on the same track the same day and reported it over radios.

We linked in our initial reporting of #Amtrak188 tragedy to the fact that the FBI had issued warnings to all law enforcement agencies stating RailRoad Derailment devices were being stolen via its in-house Weekly Intelligence Bulletin which is not accessible to the general public. Yet ABC must have had an inside source and ran intel story May 8th, 2015 alluding to the FBI’s warning of stolen derailment devices.

We wrote and quoted an excerpted ABC Story on our site here: #RedAlert USA FBI Warned Railroad Derailment Devices Stolen 05.08.2015 Purposefully Derailed by Islamic Terrorists? #Amtrak188 #PhillyAmtrak

We were one of the first journalists to put two and two together. This wasn’t the engineer’s fault at all. Too many out of the ordinary security warnings going on here

Another like minded individual pieced together similar concerns in his article. H/T KevBakerShow

USDefenseLeague.com Related Posts:

There is new evidence of a projectile possibly having caused the inexplicable increased speed of 106MPH. The engineer has no recollection of anything preceding the Amtrak #188 derailment which killed eight and injured 200+ people. Someone in the Engine car pulled on the emergency brake at the last minute, bringing the speed down to 102MPH but not enough to make the sharp left-hand turn which has maximum speed of 50MPH.

Who was it that pulled the emergency brake if the engineer wasn’t conscious at that point? Was the man pulling the emergency brake already on the train? Or had he been the one outside the train who threw or shot a projectile or rock which catapulted the engineer into unconsciousness?  A witness, telling authorities, said she saw a man with black hair and beard quickly leaving the crash scene. Is it possible that the engineer was knocked out prior from someone with nefarious intentions on the train? Or did the projectile hit him in the head causing him to fall onto the gear causing the acceleration? ISIS (The Islamic State) had just made a recent detailed public announcement to attack USA. Who was the blackhaired bearded man standing by then running away from the crash scene? Was he an accomplice shooting or throwing projectiles at oncoming trains? Or just someone walking.

Was there a derailment device found at the crash site of Amtrak188? A lot of unanswered important questions still. God Bless the FBI and local law enforcement. And we also pray truth will come out with proper coordination between agencies working with NTSB.

We believe it is possible that this was a lone wolf ISIS attack or was even more organized. According to our count 238 passengers, 5 crew, 8 deceased, along with hospital number counts of persons treated, there are 7 persons yet to be accounted for. There were 7 train cars.

PORT RICHMOND (WPVI) —
As investigators try to determine whether Amtrak train 188 was hit by something just before crashed, for the first time – we’re hearing the frantic call made by transit police about another incident on the same night.

Action News has obtained a SEPTA Police scanner call from the night of the terrible incident.

“An unknown object made contact with that train shattering the windshield,” one person is heard saying.

In it they are responding to reports that a SEPTA train was hit by an unknown object.

The engineer of that SEPTA train is expected to be interviewed by the NTSB this weekend.

SEPTA says something hit the front window of one of their trains, about 20 minutes before the Amtrak train crashed.

That’s what the SEPTA engineer was discussing with the Amtrak engineer over the radio shortly before derailment.

The conversation, which was captured on tape, was turned over to the NTSB.

It was on Friday that the NTSB first revealed that an interview with an assistant conductor indicated something may have hit Amtrak 188 before Tuesday night’s wreck that left eight people dead.

Robert Sumwalt of the NTSB described an interview with one of the train’s assistant conductors.

The assistant conductor allegedly told investigators that she heard engineer Brandon Bostian talking to a SEPTA engineer.

The SEPTA engineer said something may have hit his train or his train had been shot at, the assistant conductor recalled.

The train on the SEPTA Trenton line was hit by an object around 9:10 p.m., shortly before the Amtrak crash.

Meanwhile, Bostian told the SEPTA engineer he believed something hit his train as well, the assistant conductor said, according to the NTSB.

She felt a rumbling and then the train tipped over, she told the NTSB

Sumwalt described Bostian as “very cooperative.” He said Bostian remembered ringing a bell as he passed through the North Philadelphia train station, but doesn’t remember anything after that.

Bostian had a good working knowledge of the territory, Sumwalt said, and said he was not tired or sick.

Meanwhile, federal officials announced Saturday that Amtrak must immediately expand its use of a speed restriction system on Philadelphia’s northbound rails.

The Federal Railroad Administration said an emergency order would be issued in coming days that calls for Amtrak to ensure the presence of the automatic train control system that notifies an engineer when a train is above the speed limit and automatically applies the brakes if the engineer doesn’t act to slow the train down.

The system is already being used for southbound trains approaching the curve where Tuesday’s derailment occurred.

e SEPTA train wasn’t the only train hit that night. Action News has confirmed that an Acela train was hit by an object just minutes before at 9:05 p.m.

Sumwalt said the NTSB also interviewed Bostian on Friday. According to Sumwalt, Bostian did not report being struck by anything and, when asked by the NTSB, he did not recall saying the train was.

The NTSB says a forward-facing camera on Amtrak 188 did not immediately indicate anything striking the train.

Sumwalt said, “Our investigation has not independently confirmed this information, but we have seen damage to the left-hand lower portion of the Amtrak windshield, that we have asked the FBI to come in and look at for us.”

Sumwalt described Bostian as “very cooperative.” He said Bostian remembered ringing a bell as he passed through the North Philadelphia train station, but doesn’t remember anything after that.

Bostian had a good working knowledge of the territory, Sumwalt said, and said he was not tired or sick.

Meanwhile, federal officials announced Saturday that Amtrak must immediately expand its use of a speed restriction system on Philadelphia’s northbound rails.

The Federal Railroad Administration said an emergency order would be issued in coming days that calls for Amtrak to ensure the presence of the automatic train control system that notifies an engineer when a train is above the speed limit and automatically applies the brakes if the engineer doesn’t act to slow the train down.

The system is already being used for southbound trains approaching the curve where Tuesday’s derailment occurred.

Amtrak said it would abide by the federal directive and others announced Saturday, adding that Amtrak’s “overarching goal is to provide safe and secure rail passenger travel.”

It was on Thursday that the NTSB said in the last minute or so before the derailment, the Washington-to-New York train sped up from 70 mph until it reached more than 100 mph at a sharp bend where the maximum speed is 50 mph.

Sumwalt said Thursday it was unclear whether the speed was increased manually by engineer Brandon Bostian.

So far, investigators have found no problems with the track, the signals or the locomotive, and the train was running on time, Sumwalt said.

Bostian was in the cab in the front of the high-tech engine. On the left, there is a throttle handle to increase speed. There is also a red alert button the engineer has to hit a few times each minute or the engine goes into emergency shutdown mode.

On the LCD screen in front of him, there is a speedometer which would tell him how fast he’s going and, to the right, is the red-handled train break. The NTSB says it’s one of the newer models of engines Amtrak is putting into service.

“And this particular locomotive was placed into service just over a year ago,” said Sumwalt.

Investigators say there were no signs warning to reduce speed ahead like you may see on roadways. Engineers must rely on memory.

“There is no sign alongside the track. That is part of the engineer’s qualifications that they’re supposed to know,” said Sumwalt.

The new information comes on the same day that the first funeral for the victims was held.

Services for Justin Zemser, a 20-year-old midshipman at the U.S. Naval Academy, took place on Long Island on Friday morning.

H/T NPR

ARUN RATH, HOST:

This is ALL THINGS CONSIDERED from NPR West. I’m Arun Rath. The mystery over the derailment of an Amtrak train near Philadelphia just took another twist. There are reports of objects hitting trains in the area just before the crash. Since the deadly derailment last Tuesday, much of the focus has been on the engineer and why the train increased speed to 106 miles per hour before entering a curve with a 50 mile per hour speed limit. NPR’s Jeff Brady has the latest.

JEFF BRADY, BYLINE: The National Transportation Safety Board on Friday interviewed workers who were on that Amtrak train when it derailed. Robert Sumwalt with the NTSB says an assistant conductor reported hearing a radio transmission that a nearby regional train had been struck by something or shot at.

(SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING)

ROBERT SUMWALT: She also believed that she heard her engineer say something about his train being struck by something.

BRADY: But Sumwalt says the Amtrak engineer told investigators he doesn’t remember anything in the moments before the train derailed. Sumwalt says the assistant conductor reports that those radio transmissions came just before the accident.

(SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING)

SUMWALT: Our investigation has not independently confirmed this information, but we have seen damage to the left-hand lower portion of the Amtrak windshield.

BRADY: Sumwalt says the FBI is examining the windshield damage. Meantime, passengers on a third train also report an object hitting their car in the same area just 15 or 20 minutes before the derailment. Doug Harris says he was on that train from New York to Washington.

DOUG HARRIS: I had headphones on. As we were approaching Philadelphia, I heard a loud thump. I looked up, and two rows in front of me and on the opposite side of the train, a passenger was pointing out his window, which now had a large crack in the glass that obviously hadn’t been there before.

BRADY: Harris says Amtrak workers in Philadelphia examined the 8-to-10-inch circular crack and decided it was safe for the train to continue. He says no one saw what hit the window.

HARRIS: Just given the size of it and the thump, it just kind of instinctively felt like a rock to those of us around.

BRADY: All this new information has some in the neighborhood near the accident site speculating about what happened. Just a few blocks from where the train derailed, a truck passes by Sharon Achuff’s house. Tuesday night, she says she was outside visiting with neighbors.

SHARON ACHUFF: That night that the train accident happened, we were sitting out on the step. And a light of blue come right across the wires – I mean (whistling) so fast.

BRADY: Her neighbor, Debbie Chappell, says at first, she thought it was lightning. But they soon realized something bad happened up on the train tracks. Chappell says that’s when they saw a shadowy figure quickly leaving the scene.

DEBBIE CHAPPELL: Then we see this guy coming down on the opposite side of the street real fast – walking real fast. And we all said, he probably had something to do with it. I wonder what he did.

BRADY: Did you get a look at the man? Do you know what he looks like?

CHAPPELL: No. All I seen that he had black hair and a beard, and he went real fast.

  • BRADY: Could these be faulty memories of a chaotic moment or a potential lead for investigators? Philadelphia police spokeswoman Christine O’Brien tells NPR there are a lot of reasons someone might walk away from the scene. Still, she’s forwarding the information to colleagues collecting reports about the derailment. If it is determined the accident was the result of a criminal act, the investigation would transfer from the NTSB to a law enforcement agency. So far, there’s no announcement that has happened. Jeff Brady, NPR News, Philadelphia.

Clinton Allegedly CoveredUp Obama’s Fake Family Hushed Queen of England’s Archive Chief [2VIDEOS]

Clinton.w.Queen+Hosts+Reception+Deligates+London+Summit.
Hillary Clinton was sent, it is believed, under great emotional trauma and possible duress, allegedly on behalf of the President Barack Obama the 44th President in the White House, on a covert purposed mission to England in August 2009 prior to also traveling to the subsequent and very out of the way jaunt to Kenya, Africa for two weeks that same August 2009.

Hillary’s travel history reveals she was indeed in Kenya, Africa in August 4th through August 7th, 2009 officially meeting with the Somalian President, Shiekh Ahmed, but her published travel history omits the surprise visit to England to meet with the Queen of England’s Chief of Archives.

US Congress: Treason In Time of War Shall Be Punishable By Death #tcot


By Section 110 of Article III. of the Constitution of the United States, it is declared that:

“Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open Court. The Congress shall have power to declare the punishment of treason.”

In 1790, the Congress of the United States enacted that:

“If any person or persons, owing allegiance to the United States of America, shall levy war against them, or shall adhere to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States, or elsewhere, and shall be thereof convicted on confession in open Court, or on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act of the treason whereof he or they shall stand indicted, such person or persons shall be adjudged guilty of treason against the United States, and SHALL SUFFER DEATH; and that if any person or persons, having knowledge of the commission of any of the treasons aforesaid, shall conceal, and not, as soon as may be, disclose and make known the same to the President of the United States, or some one of the Judges thereof, or to the President or Governor of a particular State, or some one of the Judges or Justices thereof, such person or persons, on conviction, shall be adjudged guilty of misprision of treason, and shall be imprisoned not exceeding seven years, and fined not exceeding one thousand dollars.”

JAMES MADISON in the 43d number of the Federalist says:

“As treason may be committed against the United States the authority of the United States ought to be enabled to punish it: but as new tangled and artificial treasons have been the great engines by which violent factions, the natural offspring of free governments, have usually wreaked their alternate malignity on each other, the Convention has with great judgment opposed a barrier to this peculiar danger by inserting a Constitutional definition of the crime.”

The Constitution confines the crime of treason to two species; First, the levying of war against the United States; and Secondly, adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. In so doing the very words of the Statute of Treason of EDWARD the THIRD were adopted; and thus the framers of the Constitution recognized the well settled interpretation of these phrases in the administration of criminal law which has prevailed for centuries in England.

Treason, according to Lord COKK, is derived from trahir, signifying to betray; and trahison, by contraction, treason, is the betraying itself.

In England, high treason can only be committed against the KING, for the oath of allegiance is to the KING alone, as the only supreme Governor — he has no partners in the supremacy.

Hitherto, but few cases have occurred in the United States in which it has been necessary for the Federal Courts to act upon this important subject. In 1807 ERICK BALLMAN and SAMUEL SWARTWONT were committed to prison in the District of Columbia, on a charge of high treason against the United States. The prisoners were brought by a writ of habeas corpus before the Supreme Court of the United States. In delivering the opinion of the Court, Chief-Justice MARSHALL said:

“To constitute that specific crime for which the prisoners now before the Court have been commuted, war must be actually levied against the United States. However flagitious may be the crime of conspiring to subvert by force the Government of our country, such conspiracy is not treason. To conspire to levy war. and actually to levy war, are distinct offences. The first must be brought into operation by an assemblage of men for a purpose, treasonable in itself, or the fact of levying war cannot have been committed.” * * * * * * * “It is not the intention of the Court to say that no individual can be guilty of this crime who has not appeared in arms against his country. On the contrary, if war be actually levied, that is, if a body of men Be actually assembled for the purpose of effecting by force a treasonable purpose, all those who perform any part, however minute, or however remote from the scene of action, and who are actually leagued in the general conspiracy, are to be considered as traitors. But there must be an actual assembling of men for a treasonable purpose to constitute levying of war. Crimes, so atrocious as those which have for their object the subversion by violence of those laws and those institutions which have been ordained in order to secure the peace and happiness of society, are not to escape punishment because they have not ripened into treason. The wisdom of the Legislature is competent to provide for the case.”

In the case of The United States vs. FRIES, Mr. Justice CHASE said on the trial, and stated the opinion of the Court to be,

“That if a body of people, conspire and meditate an insurrection to resist or oppose the execution of any statute of the United States by force, they are only guilty of a high misdemeanor; but if they proceed to carry such intention into execution by force, that they are guilty of the treason of levying war; and the quantum of the force employed neither lessens or increases the crime — whether by one hundred or one thousand persons is wholly immaterial;”

* * * “and that it is altogether immaterial whether the force used is sufficient to effectuate the object; any force connected with the intention will constitute the crime of levying war.”

In the case of the United States vs. AARON BURR, Chief-Justice MARSHALL said:

“There is no difficulty in affirming that there must be a war, or the crime of levying it cannot exist; but there would often be considerable difficulty in affirming that a particular act did or did not involve the person committing it in the guilt and in the fact of levying war. If, for example, an army should be actually raised for the avowed purpose of carrying on open war against the United States and subverting their Government, the point must be weighed very deliberately before a Judge would venture to decide that an overt act of levying war had not been committed by a Commissary of purchases who never saw the army, but who, knowing its object, and leaguing himself with the rebels supplied that army with provisions; or by a Recruiting-officer, holding a commission in the rebel service, who, though never in camp, executed the particular duty assigned to him.”

This able jurist, in the same case, states that the term “levying war,” as used in the Constitution of the United States, was unquestionably employed in the same sense in which it was understood in England and in this country, to have been used in the Statute of EDWARD III., from which it was borrowed, and refers to principles laid down by COKE, HALE, FOSTER, BLACKSTONE and HAWKINS.

FOSTER says:

“Attacking the King’s forces, in opposition to his authority, upon a march or in quarters, is levying war.”

And also that

“Holding a castle or fort against the King or his forces, if actual force be used in order to keep possession, is levying war.” — Sec. 4 Cranch Reps. 75, 137, Appendix 470-507.

FOSTER further states, in his valuable Treatise on Treason, that all insurrection, to effect certain innovations of a public and general concern, by an armed force, to be, in construction of law, high treason within the clause of levying war. He farther says:

“An assembly armed and arrayed in a warlike manner for a treasonable purpose is bellum, levatum, though not bellum percussum; listing and marching are sufficient overt acts, without coming to a battle or action. So cruising on the King’s subjects, under a French Commission, France being then at war with us, was held to be adhering to the King’s enemies, though no other act of hostility be proved.” — See 4 Cranch, pp. 478,479:

Lord COKE says: “If many conspire to levy war, and some of them do levy the same, according to the conspiracy this is high treason in all.” “Why? Because all were legally present when the war was levied? No. “For in treason,” continues Lord COKE, “all be principals and war is levied.” This doctrine of Lord COKE has been adopted by all subsequent writers; and it is generally laid down in the English books that whatever will make a man an accessory in felony will make him a principal in treason:

“It is well known,” says FOSTER, ” that in the language of the law there are no accessories in high treason — all are principals. Every instance of incitement, aid, or protection, which in case of felony will render a man an accessory before or after the fact, in the case of high treason, whether it be treason at common law or by statute, will make him a principal in treason.”

“The propriety of investing the National Government.” says Mr. Justice STORY, in his Commentaries on the Constitution, “with authority to punish the crime of treason against the United States, could never become a question with any persons who deem ed the National Government worthy of creation or preservation. If the power had not been expressly granted, it must have been implied, unless all the powers of the National Government might be put at defiance and prostrated with impunity. Two motives probably concurred in introducing it as an express power. One was, not to leave it open to implication whether it was to be exclusively punished with death, according to the known rule of the common law, and with the barbarous accompaniments pointed out by it — but to confide the punishment to the discretion of Congress. The other was, to impose some limitation upon the nature and extent of the punishment, so that it should not work corruption of blood or forfeiture beyond the life of the offender.”

Treason has ever been deemed the highest crime which can be committed in civil society; since its aim is an overthrow of the Government and a public resistance by force of its just powers, its tendency is to create universal danger and alarm, and on this account it has often been visited with the deepest public resentment. Hence, by the common law, the the punishment of high treason was accompanied by all the refinements in cruelty which were oftentimes literally and studiously executed. But under the Constitution of the United States the power of punishing the crime of treason against the United States is exclusive in Congress; and the trial of the offence belongs exclusively to the Federal tribunals. A State cannot take cognizance or punish the offence, whatever it may do in relation to the offence of treason committed exclusively against itself.

USA’s PBN Welcomes PM Benjamin “Bibi“ .@Netanyahu “For Such A Time is This…“ #Purim #Fast&Pray #Israel

In the Prime Minister of Israel’s own words…

“I’m going to Washington on a fateful, even historic, mission,” he said as he boarded his plane in Tel Aviv. “I feel that I am an emissary of all Israel’s citizens, even those who do not agree with me, and of the entire Jewish people,” ~Prime Minister of Israel, Bibi Netanyahu  (Reuters)

spoken March 1st, 2015 as Benjamin “Bibi“ Netanyahu was boarding his plane from Israel to the United States in order to give a highly important speech Tuesday morning to our United States Congress.

Bibi’s speech before Congress will air on FoxNews Channel Tuesday morning. Check your local cable network for details

Mr. Netanyahu will be speaking on a topic of historic importance regarding Iran obtaining Nuclear weapons capabilities and Iran’s hostile intent to use those weapons to destroy Israel and even reach The United States of America.  The Obama administration has been aiding and abetting Iran and other Islamic nations and entities such as IS by not even speaking of the existence of radical Islam, Islamic Jihad or Iran and other Islamic nations to establish a one world order global Islamic Caliphate at the behest and approval of all 57 Islamic States who are members of the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) not loosely, affiliated with the UN (United Nations).

For the very first time in the history of our two nation’s allegiance, The President of the United States, Mr. Barack Obama, the 44th,  has refused to meet with Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The Christian Broadcasting Network wrote of the historic significance of Israel’s Prime Minister, Netanyahu’s arrival and the apocalyptic Toranical and biblical timing of Bibi’s speech on the eve of Purim, a Holy day of Fasting and prayer for Jews and Christians who celebrate Holy Days in both of their faiths united by the Word.

In the days ahead, Jews around the world will celebrate Purim, a festival the Bible directs us to remember, when the Jewish people were delivered more than 2,000 years ago in Persia (modern day Iran) from an evil anti-Semite –Haman — who had manipulated the king into issuing a decree that would annihilate the Jews.

According to the biblical account, Esther, a Jew, and her cousin, Mordecai, who raised her, were the instruments of deliverance.

This Tuesday, just hours before the Purim holiday begins, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will address the U.S. Congress, at the invitation of House Speaker John Boehner, to explain why his country cannot tolerate the threat from another group of evil anti-Semites in Iran to annihilate the Jews: the acquisition of nuclear weapons by the Ayatollah Khamenei and his government…

In the meantime, the gravity of the world situation and the daily reports of the persecution and murder of Christians and Jews has focused the attention of millions of Christians, as well as Jews, on what Netanyahu has to say. Many will pray and intercede, and others will fast, as Esther and her people did in biblical times.

We will pray for Israel, for Benjamin Netanyahu and Israel’s leaders, for wisdom for our own leaders, and for discernment to navigate the dangerous waters ahead. Who knows whether, as in the days of Esther and Mordecai, the address wasn’t appointed “for such a time as this…

“Your United States Air Force is still the best on the planet, but we mustn’t take that for granted because we are a force under strain,” James said. “And we mustn’t let our edge slip away.”

WASHINGTON, Feb. 27, 2015 – The Air Force is requesting $10 billion above what sequestration-level funding provides in order to support its global responsibilities, Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James told members of the House Appropriations Committee’s defense subcommittee here today.

James said the potential return of sequestration jeopardizes the Air Force’s ability to sustain its various global missions and hampers its ability to focus on its main priorities: people, modernization and stewardship.

“Sequestration needs to be lifted, lifted permanently,” the secretary said.
