President Obama heads to Miami tonight for a town hall meeting on immigration while a political fight over funding for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security comes down to the wire as it is linked to efforts to defeat President Obama’s executive order on immigration.
Since Hillary Clinton last ran for president eight years ago, something unexpected has happened in America: Feminism became chic. Celebrities like Beyoncé and Taylor Swift embrace the label as part of their brand. Beauty companies hawk their products with messages of female empowerment. And rising female politicians have made fighting sexual assault a key part of their campaigns. Now, the Clinton brand is getting in on the trend.
Spencer Zwick, the man who helped Mitt Romney raise half a billion dollars in his unsuccessful 2012 presidential run, says Hillary Clinton is poised to rake in more than three times that amount in the 2016 campaign. “Hillary Clinton is going to have $2 billion dollars, or at least from my calculation $1.7 billion if you look at the various entities.”

This Is The Biggest Problem Facing The World Today: 9 Countries Have Debt-To-GDP Over 300%
Fundamentally it comes down to whether one thinks one can get something for nothing. If it has been your experience that something can actually be gotten for nothing, no work, no money, no “other people’s money,” no blood, then congratulations. You live in an easier world than the rest of us. If however you are inclined to think that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, then perhaps you should be concerned about the piles of sovereign debt stretching into the wispy stratosphere.
The stakes are now so high for the proponents of central bank debt creation that even if they saw the error of their ways (unlikely) they will still run us off a cliff if unchecked.
Why Does Maryland Have The Most Millionaires Per Capita? The Answer Might Make You Angry
The fat cats in Washington D.C. are living the high life, and they are doing it at your expense. Over the past decade, there has been one area of the country which has experienced a massive economic boom. Thanks to wildly out of control government spending, the Washington D.C. region is absolutely swimming in cash. In fact, at this point the state of Maryland has the most millionaires per capita in the entire nation and it isn’t even close. If you have never lived there, it is hard to describe what the D.C. area is like. Every weekday morning, hordes of lawyers, lobbyists and government bureaucrats descend upon D.C. from the surrounding suburbs. And at the end of the day, the process goes in reverse. Everyone is just trying to get their piece of the pie, and it is a pie that just keeps on growing as government salaries, government contracts and government giveaways just get larger and larger. Of course our founders never intended for this to happen. They wanted a very small and simple federal government. Sadly, today we have the most bloated central government in the history of the planet and it gets worse with each passing year. (Read More….)
Janet Yellen Is Freaking Out About ‘Audit The Fed’ – Here Are 100 Reasons Why She Should Be
Janet Yellen is very alarmed that some members of Congress want to conduct a comprehensive audit of the Federal Reserve for the first time since it was created. If the Fed is doing everything correctly, why should Yellen be alarmed? What does she have to hide? During testimony before Congress on Tuesday, she made “central bank independence” sound like it was the holy grail. Even though every other government function is debated politically in this country, Yellen insists that what the Federal Reserve does is “too important” to be influenced by the American people. Does any other government agency ever dare to make that claim? But of course the Federal Reserve is not a government agency. It is a private banking cartel that has far more power over our money and our economy than anyone else does. And later on in this article I am going to share with you dozens of reasons why Congress should shut it down. (Read More...)

TOP 5 RIGHT HOOKS
Yesterday, Barack Obama whipped out his Cross Townsend roller-ball pen and vetoed authorization of the Keystone XL pipeline. In his veto message, Obama wrote, “[B]ecause this act of Congress conflicts with established executive branch procedures and cuts short thorough consideration of issues that could bear on our national interest — including our security, safety, and environment — it has earned my veto.” Obama vetoed Keystone for all the wrong reasons. First, he’s arguing that Congress is infringing on the power of the executive branch — ironic, considering Obama’s recent politicking over immigration. Second, this veto is the pet crusade of ecofascists. It’s clear Obama bent his ear to their lobbying efforts. Finally, a Keystone veto only means less security, as oil is shipped by rail to meet the demand. Freight trains derail. Oil gets spilled and boom: Environmental disaster. Now the bill is back in Congress, where Republican leadership will need to court Democrats to override Obama’s veto. Already, four Democrat senators promised to vote with Republicans.
On Feb. 2, 2013, famed Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, a Patriot from Texas and author of the book “American Sniper” on which the movie of the same name is based, and his colleague Chad Littlefield were murdered in Texas. On Tuesday, a little over two years after the tragic slaying, a verdict was rendered. “It took an Erath County, Texas, jury less than two hours to convict Eddie Ray Routh of capital murder,” Fox News reported. “State District Judge Jason Cashon sentenced Routh to life in prison without the possibility of parole.” Routh pleaded not-guilty by reason of insanity, which proved unsuccessful. According to Fox, “[P]rosecutors said … that whatever episodes Routh suffers are self-induced through alcohol and marijuana abuse.” District Attorney Jane Starnes argued, “That is not insanity. That is just cold, calculated capital murder.” In the end, the jury agreed, and Routh will now spend the rest of his life behind bars. There’s no bringing back Chris Kyle, but there’s at least some consolation knowing his murder won’t go unpunished.
Nearly three years to the day since George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin in what was ruled self-defense, the Obama Justice Department finally admitted its investigation found “insufficient evidence” to charge Zimmerman with violating Martin’s civil rights. Attorney General Eric Holder grudgingly conceded the evidence didn’t meet the “high standard for a federal hate crime prosecution,” though he insisted we “continue the dialogue” about racial tension. Holder, Barack Obama and the usual suspects of professional racial grievance immediately seized on Martin’s death as a platform for their brand of “social justice.” That included Obama’s infamous pronouncement, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.” But attempting to make him a poster boy for “hate crimes” diverts attention from a terribly inconvenient truth: A grossly disproportionate number of murder victims in any year are black men, women and children — about 9,000 annually. And most of these victims are murdered by other blacks — with only a handful of cases that might be associated with racism. More…
Barack Obama’s Summit on Countering Violent Extremism went over about as well as one might expect from an administration determined to deny the truth regarding that extremism’s origins. But the problem is much worse than just semantics. Paul Sperry writes at Investor’s Business Daily, “Between 2010 and 2013, the Obama administration imported almost 300,000 new immigrants from Muslim nations — more immigrants than the U.S. let in from Central America and Mexico combined over that period. … Many of the recent Muslim immigrants are from terrorist hot spots like Iraq, where the Islamic State operates. From 2010-2013, Obama ushered in 41,094 Iraqi nationals from there. Now the State Department says it will quadruple the number of refugees brought here from Syria, where IS is headquartered.” Perhaps many or most of these people are truly refugees. But maybe some are jihadis looking for an American gun-free zone to attack. It’s clear that combining Obama’s immigration policies with his views on national security is dangerous, and it could have dire implications for our nation. More…
Barack Obama once claimed his foreign policy was based on the principle, “Don’t do stupid s—.” Well, here is one of the most egregiously stupid ideas in recent memory: The U.S. is reportedly considering accepting a deal with Iran that would simply kick the can down the road by a decade or so, allowing Iran to continue its nuclear developments in the meantime and even allowing for reduced restrictions toward the end of the agreement period. (John Kerry, of course, denies the report.) Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken, displaying a keen mastery of the obvious, said any such deal would require highly intrusive inspections to verify Iran was meeting the deal’s terms. Perhaps fellow State Department deep thinker Marie Harf could explain to him that we are in this mess precisely because Iran has refused to live up to its previous intrusive inspection requirements under the Non-Proliferation Treaty. After 12 years of lying, cheating, hiding facilities, hindering inspectors, etc., now we’re supposed to believe Iran will agree to a new deal’s inspection terms? Despite all the technical arguments and political dynamics, the problem is a very simple one. Iran is obligated under the Non-Proliferation Treaty to give the International Atomic Energy Agency full, unrestricted access to inspect and verify Iran’s peaceful use of nuclear energy. Iran has refused to do so for more than a decade, openly dismissing the IAEA’s authority and even more openly mocking the UN’s ability to force Iran to comply. Pretending the previous 12 years never happened and accepting Iran’s word that this time it really, truly means it when it pledges to accept intrusive inspections is the very definition of “doing stupid s—.”
It’s been less than 100 days since the Republican Party won Congress in the midterm elections. And in that time, it has garnered Barack Obama’s veto of the Keystone XL pipeline and a fight over immigration that could gridlock Congress for the rest of the legislative session.
On Feb. 27, the Department of Homeland Security will run out of money and partially shut down if Congress doesn’t reauthorize its budget. But Senate Democrats are blocking the vote because Republicans tied the issue to funding DHS, the department tasked with discharging Obama’s unconstitutional executive actions legalizing five million illegals — or as the administration now calls them, “Americans-in-waiting.”
Three times Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell brought forward a bill to fund DHS but defund Obama’s immigration policies. Three times Senate Democrats covered for their president, blocking even the consideration of the bill, in order to show how the GOP is frozen with infighting.
If DHS is funded fully as Democrats want, then Obama continues his executive reign unchecked. If the GOP stands its ground, Democrats will score a political victory, as DHS would shut down and the Leftmedia talkingheads would skewer the GOP for it. Obama’s plan was shrewd.
U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen took some of the peril out of the legislative process when he issued an injunction last week halting the implementation of Obama’s rulemaking. With the cost of failure high, Republicans no longer have to halt Obama through the legislative process.
Obama has sworn he’ll fight anything that undermines his polices. In an opinion piece he wrote for The Hill, he audaciously called the check on his abuse of power “partisan disagreement over my actions.”
Meanwhile, the Department of Justice appealed the court ruling, and DHS hinted it would make this partial shutdown as painful as possible. While government employees tasked with the security of this nation can’t leave their posts, they won’t get paid. No word yet on what Obama would shutter — White House tours and the World War II Memorial are not under DHS jurisdiction.
DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson warned that terrorists want to attack America — specifically mentioning Minnesota’s Mall of America. “I am not telling people to not go to the mall,” he said. “I think there needs to be an awareness. There needs to be vigilance.” Yes, the jihadi threat to America is real, but Johnson is helping Democrats turn the political screws: It sure would be terrible if anything were to happen to America when partisan Republicans are holding up DHS money.
But yet a broad coalition of people stand against Obama, his immigration policies and a clean DHS funding bill. While Obama has his executive branch and Democrat senators, the opposition consists of the majority of Congress, 26 states and a Texas judge.
Democrats have done all they can do until Feb. 27, so now it’s time for a Republican power play.
McConnell introduced legislation separating the congressional response to Obama’s executive amnesty from DHS funding. He told the Senate, “Some Democrats give the impression they want Congress to address the overreach. But when they vote, they always seem to have an excuse for supporting actions they once criticized. So I’m going to begin proceedings on targeted legislation that would only address the most recent overreach from November. It isn’t tied to DHS’ funding. It removes their excuse.”
By untying the two issues, McConnell hopes to pick off a few Democrat votes. That may work, but he’ll also probably lose a few from his own party — especially in the House. And Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid announced he won’t agree to the bill he wants unless House Speaker John Boehner does too.
Again, because the judge in Texas temporarily blocked the implementation of Obama’s immigration decrees, the strategy can change. No longer is DHS funding a hill on which Republicans have to die. Republicans have two more years of rule. And then there’s 2016. What the party does in the next few months will demonstrate to the nation what a conservative president will look like in Congress.
Republicans have three days. Here’s what they should do:
- Don’t own DHS failures. Currently, the Department of Homeland Security is firmly Obama’s responsibility. Any mistake in that organization is a mistake that comes back to him. But if it’s defunded, it becomes a Republican problem. Let Obama’s problems be Obama’s problems.
- Hang together. House Republicans want Obama’s immigration diktats defunded and his power grab curtailed. So do we. But McConnell is the prime minister of Congress and he has to deal with a strong Democrat resistance. He needs realistic compromise if Obama is going to be checked. Republicans need a unified front with a smart strategy, not a suicide mission. So far that hasn’t been the case.
Conservatives have already blocked Obama’s executive amnesty through the courts. But, unfortunately, congressional Republicans don’t have a good option for winning the DHS funding fight. And the longer they drag it out, the worse it becomes.
Marco Rubio began his race for the Republican presidential nomination with a bang by snagging Jim Merrill, Mitt Romney’s top campaign aide in both of his presidential bids. Though the cat’s out of the bag, Rubio’s not expected to formally announce until April.
In joining the first-term senator from Florida, Merrill declared, “What Mitt [Romney] said is right. It’s time for the next generation of Republican leadership.” Merrill called Rubio the “most exciting candidate in the field.” He continued, “I wouldn’t be doing it if I didn’t think he could win. He knows … [how to] engage voters, do town halls, run personal door-to-door campaigns. I’ve never seen a more talented guy.”
Rubio, the son of naturalized Cuban immigrants, would be the first Latino Republican candidate. That in itself should warm the cockles of establishment-type GOP hearts. And make no mistake — Republicans must improve with minorities.
Bright, articulate and energetic, Rubio served eight years in the Florida House of Representatives, eventually being elected speaker in 2006. In 2009, he ran against Charlie Crist in the Florida senatorial primary. Beginning as an underdog, Rubio climbed the polls quickly and won the primary. Crist then ran as an independent, but Rubio beat him again in a three-way race.
In his first term as a U.S. senator, Rubio has authored, introduced or co-sponsored more bills than many of his senior colleagues, and he’s established himself as a substantial cultural and fiscal conservative.
Rubio’s major obstacle in his quest for the nomination may be fellow Floridian Jeb Bush, the man rallying GOP elites. With the establishment behind the former Sunshine State governor and with his own family’s connections, Bush has many wealthy donors already committed to him.
By comparison, Rubio has so far won the backing of George Seay, a Texas financier who supported Gov. Rick Perry in 2012, and Norman Braman, a car dealer billionaire and philanthropist. He was well received at a gathering of donors the Koch brothers put together and will likely win yet more support. But he’s still David to Bush’s Goliath.
His pitch is that he’s the right messenger (an eloquent, young, Cuban-American who can appeal to a diverse array of voters) with the right message (an optimistic plan for American exceptionalism, born of his personal story) for the 21st century.
Rubio espouses conservative cultural and fiscal conservative values — he’s pro-life, pro-religious freedom and pro-Second Amendment. He opposes same-sex marriage and recreational marijuana use. He wants to limit the growth of federal spending via a balanced budget amendment and to restore George W. Bush’s tax cuts. He favors helping small business through tax cuts, including capital gains, and promoting research and development in science and technology, including bringing the moribund space program back to life.
In his senatorial race, Rubio was the Tea Party candidate, and he probably can still expect substantial Tea Party support, even with several candidates competing for that backing.
Some pundits compare Rubio to Barack Obama’s running against a party favorite. Virtually no one knew Obama, so running against Hillary Clinton was risible. She was so far ahead in the polls that his candidacy seemed quixotic. But despite Hillary’s seeming popularity, many Democrats didn’t want a Clinton dynasty. Obama knew it, and he was able to out-charisma Hillary for the nomination.
In most respects, there’s no similarity between Rubio and Obama, but the comparison stands up on one point. Like Obama, Rubio is young and has a popular message, so with a few dozen stump speeches the polls could begin to swing. And average Republicans are leery of a Bush dynasty. Then again, this analogy discounts the several other candidates who have their own sizable followings — something Obama did not face.
Rubio presents himself and his family as being winners because of American exceptionalism — a word conservatives ache to hear again from their president. Unlike the current Oval Office occupant, Rubio exudes patriotism. His parents came from Cuba, escaping poverty and seeking opportunity, and they found it in America. We need a leader who can show us that this great nation will revive economically, will destroy ISIL and will begin to reverse its cultural decline. Maybe Rubio can do it.

OPINION IN BRIEF
British economist Harold J. Laski (1893-1950): “The only real security for social well-being is the free exercise of men’s minds.”
Columnist Ben Shapiro: “Democrats have for years been questioning the decency of Republicans as human beings. During the Obamacare rollout, President Obama accused Republicans of wanting to deprive people of healthcare; he openly accused President George W. Bush of being ‘unpatriotic’ for raising the national debt. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that Republicans are ‘indifferent’ to hungry and poor children. Anyone who opposes any aspect of President Obama’s agenda has been deemed a racist. The point here is not the media’s double standard, which is egregious but unchangeable. The point is that this perception of Republicans has pervaded the public arena. Republicans’ fundamental burden is not explaining to the American people that Democrats are great people, but wrong on policy. Their great burden is overcoming the generalized perception that they are money-grubbing Snidely Whiplashes bent on strapping widows and orphans to the train tracks. You cannot overcome that perception by ardently pleading that the very folks who call you racist, sexist, homophobic bigots are well-intentioned but incompetent.”
Columnist Michelle Malkin: “The Department of Homeland Security refuses to release a report on ‘right-wing’ terrorism that somehow found its way into CNN’s hands last week during the farcical White House summit on Don’t Say Islamic Extremism. Your tax dollars are once again hard at work – defaming conservatives, deflecting from worldwide murderous jihad and denying the public access to information they funded. CNN splashed the big scoop on its website: ‘DHS intelligence report warns of domestic right-wing terror threat.’ The fear-mongering piece featured a huge map of 24 alleged acts of ‘violence by sovereign citizen extremists since 2010.’ … When I asked DHS public affairs officer S.Y. Lee for the document, he told me it’s ‘not for public release’ because it’s ‘an FOUO document (for official use only). Same as many DHS products to law enforcement.’ I asked whether CNN now qualifies as ‘law enforcement.’ No response.”
Comedian Conan O’Brien: “During her Oscar acceptance speech, Patricia Arquette called for equal pay for women. Then Oprah stood up and said, ‘She’s right, I can’t live like this. I can’t take another second of this living hell.'”

The Book of Ecclesiastes tells us that history inevitably repeats itself! and this could be a terrifying reality for Oregonians who are about to find themselves living in a bona fide medical police state if State Sen. Elizabeth Steiner Hayward gets her way. She’s spearheading changes to state law that would eliminate philosophical and religious exemptions for vaccines, thereby forcing all parents to have their children physically violated with extremely toxic substances still used in vaccines: mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde and monosodium glutamate — all still used in vaccines as openly admitted by the CDC. Nazi fascism is deeply rooted in the belief that the state owns your body — a belief now shared by Sen. Steiner Hayward. Under the banner of “science,” Nazi scientists readily endorsed all the following “medical science” policies while claiming they were all necessary for the “greater good of society.” Are we witnessing the rise of another Holocaust and a ruthless dictator that will control the masses thru the Media, Healthcare, and etc? time will definitely say and I believe it will be very Soon!

|Scores of GIANT asteroids on course to hurtle past Earth within the monthPosted: 25 Feb 2015 06:19 AM PST
NASA is sounding the alarm once again over asteroids in close proximity of Earth. The latest comes as scores of giant asteroids are on course to hurtle close to Earth before the end of February, according to latest NASA space data. More than 1km wide these Asteroids would produce catastrophic consequences if any of these Asteroids were to strike the Earth. Nearly 70 asteroids are on the radar and most are around 100 metres wide, the size of a double decker bus, and would be capable of causing significant damage. These Monsters travel at up to 70,000 miles an hour, and if any of these were to hit Earth it could “alter life as we know it”! Plumes of debris thrown into the atmosphere would change the climate making the planet inhabitable for all life including humans. Impact would be catastrophic destroying cities and knocking out transport and communication networks. According to NASA’s Near Earth Object Programme, there are 68 ‘close approaches’ forecast before the end of next month. Source

|50+ dead birds found along the waterways in Kapiti, New ZealandPosted: 24 Feb 2015 08:34 PM PST
More Animal deaths are being reported as More than 50 dead birds, including ducks, gulls and a shag, had been collected by Kapiti Coast District Council and SPCA staff, following reports from residents and patrols of waterways. An avian epidemiology expert is urging the public to dispose of dead birds and bring sick birds suspected of having avian botulism to a vet. Massey University veterinary, animal and biomedical sciences associate prof Brett Gartrell said while botulism was possible, it was not the only possible cause for the dead birds. Avian botulism is a toxin caused by a bacteria that lives in rotting vegetation – the same nerve toxin used in botox treatment, he said. When birds eat the toxin they become aggressively paralysed and die because of respiratory failure. ‘ ‘It’s not a nice way to die.” Botulism was difficult to prevent and popped up when least expected but tended to be “tend to be short explosive outbreaks ” A botulism outbreak could pass to pets that eat the dead birds but not humans.

|Dozens Of Dead Sea Lions Litter Malibu Beaches, Unprecedented Year of Strandings expectedPosted: 24 Feb 2015 08:25 PM PST
If you’re planning a vacation anytime soon to Malibu, you may not get a breathtaking view of the beach as you expected, because at some local beaches dead sea lions are reportedly being discovered washed ashore by multiple witnesses. While, no one with the California Wildlife Center was available for a comment on Sunday, A recording on the hotline states they’re experiencing an “unprecedented year of sea lion strandings.” The recording continues “due to the high number of reported animals we may not be able to return your call…we may not respond to the animal on the day of report.” NOAA Fisheries says the warmer than average sea surface temperatures may be a factor in the strandings. They say the higher temperatures affect the sea lion’s food. FULL REPORT

|ISIS Burns 8000 Rare Books and Manuscripts in MosulPosted: 24 Feb 2015 08:10 PM PST
The Mosul public library was torched by ISIS according to latest reports from the Mideast. Among the many thousands of books it housed, more than 8,000 rare old books and manuscripts were burned. The Public library was reportedly burned to the ground by ISIS Militants. They used improvised Notables in Mosul tried to persuade ISIS members to spare the library, but failed. The Mosul Public Library was established in 1921, the same year that saw the birth of the modern Iraq. Among its lost collections were manuscripts from the eighteenth century, Syriac books printed in Iraq’s first printing house in the nineteenth century, books from the Ottoman era, Iraqi newspapers from the early twentieth century and some old antiques like an astrolabe and sand glass used by ancient Arabs.

Obama Silent As ISIS Kidnaps And Captures Over 90 Syrian Christians
Islamic Terrorist fighters from ISIS swept through villages in Syria early Monday, and captured as many as 90 Assyrian Christians.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Barack Hussein Obama, who claims to be a Christian, is the very first to stand up for and defend Muslims and Islam. But when Christians are slaughtered by Muslim terror groups like ISIS, he says nothing. Why? To better understand what the answer to that question might be, you need to click here and see.
The villages are located on the banks of the Khabur River, close to the towns of Tal Tamr in Hassakeh province. Control of this territory is split between ISIS and Kurdish fighters.
It is not known what the fate of these Christians will be. ISIS beheaded 21 Coptic Christians just a week ago in Libya. They had been captured in Egypt. Sources say that ISIS may use the latest hostages in a swap with Kurdish fighters.
In a damning report, ISIS is now calling Christians “Crusaders” after Barack Obama’s ludicrous narrative, recalling the Crusades, and saying that Christians have done evil things in the name of Jesus. What Mr. Obama did NOT say, is that the fighting by the Crusaders was to recapture territory taken by Muslims in the Holy Land. It is becoming clear that these barbaric fighters (ISIS) are taking their orders from the president of the United States.
“Nuri Kino, the head of the activist group A Demand For Action — which focuses on religious minorities in the Middle East — said the militants took between 70 and 100 Assyrians captive. Kino said his organization based its information on conversations with villagers who fled the onslaught, as well as their relatives.
Kino added that some 3,000 people managed to flee the onslaught and have sought refuge in the cities of Hassakeh and the provincial capital of Qamishli.” source
We can only pray now for our brethren.

Why Is The EU Parliament Building Modeled After The Cursed Tower Of Babel?
The construction of the EU Parliament in the image of the Tower of Babel sends the message that Nimrod had the right philosophy and his Tower of Babel was a good idea.
“And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth. “ Genesis 11:4,5,9 (KJV)
Recently, we have been writing on a particularly interesting character, the new PM of Greece, Alexis Tsipras. Many Christians are now looking at this man with heightened interest. He seems to embody many of the Biblical descriptions of the coming Antichrist. Time will tell, and we will be watching.
In this article, I will be reporting on something that I find as interesting as Tsipras himself. We will look at the EU Parliament Building, and more specifically at their building. Ever since it was completed in December of 1999, the EU parliament has raised questions and many eyebrows by its peculiar architecture. Although it is meant to have a modernist look, many say that it was fashioned after Nimrod’s Tower of Babel from the Scriptures.
Why does it look unfinished?
Promoters say it reflects the “unfinished nature of Europe”. However, some research on the subject reveals the dark and deep symbolism of the building. Exposing the real source of inspiration behind the Louise Weiss building is exposing the esoteric beliefs of the world elite, their dark aspirations and their interpretation of ancient scriptures.
We’ll go straight to the point: the Louise Weiss building is meant to look like painting “The Tower of Babel” by Pieter Brueghel the Elder in 1563. Story says that the Tower of Babel was never completed.
So, the UN Parliament is basically continuing the unfinished work of Nimrod, the infamous tyrant, who was building the Tower of Babel to defy God.
Do you think this is a good source of inspiration for a “democratic institution”?
The Story of Nimrod and the Tower of Babel
The story of Nimrod and the building of the Tower of Babel is found in many ancient manuscripts from various cultures around the world. Genesis 11 in the King James Bible starts off right after the end of the flood of Noah, and lets us know that:
“And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.” Genesis 11:1 (KJV)
The bible tells us that there was worldwide unity and harmony, a good thing, right? Wrong. No sooner is the whole world together then they immediately plan to overthrow God and “build a tower to Heaven”. That’s the result of bringing in World Peace without the King of Peace, Jesus Christ. We all know the story, the build the tower, make some pretty good progress right up until the moment where God confounds their speech with a multiplicity of previously unknown languages., and they are scattered. It looks like the modern-day European Union is headed for the exact same fate.
The official motto of the EU Parliament is this: “Europe – Many Tongues One Voice”. Now, add to their motto that their official headquarters is an updated version of the biblical Tower of Babel and I think you begin to see not only motive but intent as well.
Symbolism of the EU Parliament
The construction of the EU Parliament in the image of the Tower of Babel sends the message that Nimrod had the right philosophy and his Tower of Babel was a good idea.
What we can expect to see from the EU on this path:
- A gradual introduction of tyranny
- The elimination of the worship of God to introduce dependence on power
- All people speaking the same language and the same religion
- Rejecting God while trying to become gods
You know what? Those are major precepts of the esoteric beliefs of the world elite. Their belief system is based on the Mystery Religions (pagan rituals, worship of the Sun, considering Lucifer as the one who gave light to the human race, seeing God as a force wanting to keep humans in the dark).
Their New World Order will have evacuated all worship of God, introduced a single language and changed democracy to tyranny.
Here is the OFFICIAL poster promoting the EU Parliament:
In the poster we see the people of Europe rebuilding the Tower of Babel, only it’s not the ancient Tower of Babel but a very modern-day counterpart, the Louise Weiss building. It reminds me of the movie Jurassic Park where they use DNA samples to recreate the ancient dinosaurs only to find themselves as the prey of those same animals. Amazing how history repeats itself and how bible prophecy is always correct. Every time.
Here’s some points to note:
Point #1: We have a confirmation that the Louise Weiss building was truly inspired by the Tower of Babel. The poster recreated the exact tower on Pieter Brueghel’s painting, even making sure to include the broken part of the foundation. There is NO question there.
Point #2: The slogan: “Europe: Many Tongues One Voice” refers to God confusing the people with many languages. Lessons learned since Genesis 11? Zero.
Point #3: Look closely at the stars at the top. Do they look strange? They are upside down aka reversed pentagrams. The symbolism behind pentagrams is extremely deep and complex but we can say that a regular pentagram refers to “Good Ruling” and a reverse pentagram refers to “Evil Ruling”.
This poster has been banned due to protests by numerous groups. It is however extremely revealing and proves the esoteric mindset of the builders of the European Union’s Parliament.
- The European Union is a superstate that currently includes 28 countries (more in the future).
- The same fate awaits American and Asian countries, who are bound to unite under the same flag and currency to create other superstates. Those are the building blocks towards a Single World Government, a goal actively sought by the world elite.
- The EU Parliament Building is the first monument representing a superstate and reveals, through its intense symbolism, hatred of religion, plans for a New World Order and their subtle endorsement of tyranny.
Are you as convinced of the demonic powers at work here as I am?
With this new information in hand, the Alexis Tsipras piece now is even more intriguing, wouldn’t you say?

End Times Bible Prophecy Is Unfolding Before Our Very Eyes (VIDEO)
Do we really need the newspaper or online news websites any longer?
“Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.” Amos 3:7 (KJV)
As followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, and loving His holy Word, can we not just read Scripture to know the world news? This is one of many amazing things we get from the Word, and that is knowing what will happen before it happens!
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” 2 Timothy 3:1-5 (KJV)

“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” Colossians 2:8 (KJV)
And of course there are Scriptures which have yet to be fulfilled:
“Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” 1 Thessalonians 4:17 (KJV)

Since so many prophecies are being fulfilled, doesn’t it make sense that we are coming down to the last stretch before we are removed from the earth?
What should we be doing?
SHARE THE GOSPEL WITH EVERYONE YOU MEET!
Wouldn’t you yell out to a person if you saw them running toward a cliff??
PRAY PRAY PRAY for the lost. Pray that the Lord would bring His people, the ones of His choosing, into their lives to share the message of Salvation.
Get your Left Behind letters typed up and put in a prominent place in your home. There are some excellent ones on Rapture Ready– you can modify them as needed.
Reconcile with other Christians – something you’ve been putting off. Forgive them of the hurts they inflicted. Jesus forgave you! We MUST forgive.
If you inflicted pain on someone else – go to them and ask their forgiveness. Even if they don’t forgive, YOU did the right thing. You are only responsible for what you have control over.
If any of the readers of this piece are not sure that you are truly saved, this is of utmost importance!!
God’s Simple Plan of Salvation
My Friend: I am asking you the most important question of life. Your joy or your sorrow for all eternity depends upon your answer. The question is: Are you saved? It is not a question of how good you are, nor if you are a church member, but are you saved? Are you sure you will go to Heaven when you die?
God says in order to go to Heaven, you must be born again. In John 3:7, Jesus said to Nicodemus, “Ye must be born again.” In the Bible God gives us the plan of how to be born again which means to be saved. His plan is simple! You can be saved today. How?
First, my friend, you must realize you are a sinner. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23 (KJV)
Because you are a sinner, you are condemned to death. “For the wages [payment] of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). This includes eternal separation from God in Hell.
“ . . . it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27).
But God loved you so much He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus, to bear your sin and die in your place. “ . . . He hath made Him [Jesus, Who knew no sin] to be sin for us . . . that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21).
Jesus had to shed His blood and die. “For the life of the flesh is in the blood” (Lev. 17:11). “ . . . without shedding of blood is no remission [pardon]” (Hebrews 9:22).
“ . . . God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” Romans 5:8 (KJV)
Although we cannot understand how, God said my sins and your sins were laid upon Jesus and He died in our place. He became our substitute. It is true. God cannot lie.
My friend, “God . . . commandeth all men everywhere to repent” (Acts 17:30). This repentance is a change of mind that agrees with God that one is a sinner, and also agrees with what Jesus did for us on the Cross.
In Acts 16:30-31, the Philippian jailer asked Paul and Silas: “ . . . ‘Sirs, what must I do to be saved?’ And they said, ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved . . . .’ ”
Simply believe on Him as the one who bore your sin, died in your place, was buried, and whom God resurrected. His resurrection powerfully assures that the believer can claim everlasting life when Jesus is received as Savior.
“But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name” John 1:12 (KJV)
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13 (KJV)
Whosoever includes you. Shall be saved means not maybe, nor can, but shall be saved. Surely, you realize you are a sinner. Right now, wherever you are, repenting, lift your heart to God in prayer.
In Luke 18:13, the sinner prayed: “God be merciful to me a sinner.” Just pray: “Oh God, I know I am a sinner. I believe Jesus was my substitute when He died on the Cross. I believe His shed blood, death, burial, and resurrection were for me. I now receive Him as my Savior. I thank You for the forgiveness of my sins, the gift of salvation and everlasting life, because of Your merciful grace. Amen.”
Just take God at His word and claim His salvation by faith. Believe, and you will be saved. No church, no lodge, no good works can save you. Remember, God does the saving. All of it!
God’s simple plan of salvation is: You are a sinner. Therefore, unless you believe on Jesus Who died in your place, you will spend eternity in Hell. If you believe on Him as your crucified, buried, and risen Savior, you receive forgiveness for all of your sins and His gift of eternal salvation by faith.
You say, “Surely, it cannot be that simple.” Yes, that simple! It is scriptural. It is God’s plan. My friend, believe on Jesus and receive Him as Savior today.
If His plan is not perfectly clear, read this tract over and over, without laying it down, until you understand it. Your soul is worth more than all the world.
“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?” Mark 8:36 (KJV)
Be sure you are saved. If you lose your soul, you miss Heaven and lose all. Please! Let God save you this very moment.
God’s power will save you, keep you saved, and enable you to live a victorious Christian life. “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, Who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it” (1 Corinthians 10:13).
Do not trust your feelings. They change. Stand on God’s promises. They never change. After you are saved, there are three things to practice daily for spiritual growth:
- Pray — you talk to God.
- Read your Bible — God talks to you.
- Witness — you talk for God.
You should be baptized in obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ as a public testimony of your salvation, and then unite with a Bible-believing church without delay. “Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord . . . .” (2 Timothy 1:8) God’s Simple Plan Of Salvation Gospel Tract
“Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 10:32 (KJV)

2016 Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton Endorses Government Takeover Of Internet
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signaled support for the Federal Communications Commission upcoming vote to make the internet a Title II public utility.
Democrats have always been opposed to fundamental American rights like the Second Amendment, they are not overly fond of the First Amendment, the right to free speech against the government, either. By taking over and regulating the flow of free speech on the Internet, the greatest communication medium this world has ever seen, the government will be able to effectively squash the tide of truth that the main stream media has long since stopped reporting on.
Hillary Clinton as president of these United States? Welcome to Barack Hussein Obama’s third term.
When asked directly by Re/Code’s Kara Swisher if she supported the FCC’s upcoming vote, she said she supported President Obama’s position on the issue.
“I would vote for net neutrality, because as I understand it, it’s Title II with a lot of changes within it in order to avoid the worst of the utility regulation,” she said. “It’s a foot in the door, it’s a value statement, I think the president is right to be upfront and out front on that.”
“They have to have a hook to hang it on, so they’re hanging it on Title II,” she said, defending the FCC’s decision as “the only hook they’ve got” to bring about change.
Clinton signaled support for “another hook” for net neutrality derived from a “modern 21st century telecom technology act” but conceded that it was unlikely to happen in the near future. source

Netanyahu speech setting stage for Last Days?
Many Christian leaders around the globe agree — the United States is at a very pivotal point in world and biblical history with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s much-contended March 3 speech before Congress at the nation’s capital.
President Barack Obama rebuked House Speaker John Boehner for inviting Netanyahu to speak to Congress. The President and some other Democrats will not attend the speech, causing an unprecedented disconnect between the U.S. and Israel.
Mark Biltz, author of the book Blood Moons: Decoding the Imminent Heavenly Signs, says that biblical prophecies about Israel standing alone in the End Times may be coming to pass. Signs in the heavens could also be a warning of things to come. Next month, near the time of Israel’s vital elections and the Passover season there will be a solar eclipse and then a blood moon. He says, “God is trying to tell us something about a divine appointment.”
