That was the message from Tesla Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk this week while discussing, for the first time, the early response to his new product line of storage batteries designed for use in homes and businesses. The numbers are impressive. In the first few days of reservations since the battery announcement late on April 30, Tesla took orders worth roughly $800 million in potential revenue.

“The multiplication of public offices, increase of expense beyond income, growth and entailment of a public debt, are indications soliciting the employment of the pruning knife.” —Thomas Jefferson, letter to Spencer Roane, 1821
TOP RIGHT HOOKS
When will the U.S. economy roar back to life? First quarter GDP dismally underperformed expectations, and it can’t be blamed on the weather. The only good number in April’s Bureau of Labor Statistics’ jobs report is that the U.S. economy added 223,000 jobs. But even that number is tempered by the paltry number of workers the country added in March. Unemployment “was essentially unchanged” as it was 5.4%, and the U-6 measure of labor underutilization edged down a tenth of a percentage point to 10.8%. And the labor force participation rate remains at historic lows. “Since April 2014, the participation rate has remained within a narrow range of 62.7 percent to 62.9 percent,” the report says.
Of the jobs that were added, most of the growth was in the economic sectors of professional and business services, health care and construction. The oil and gas industry lost 3,000 jobs in April, which shows it’s contracting and jettisoning workers after the glut of energy production in December. The factories are slowing down, as the average manufacturing workweek is shortening to 40.8 hours. This is all in contrast to the Obama administration’s mantra that the economy will kick itself out of first gear any day now. Before BLS released the numbers, The New York Times said the shadowy policymakers at the Fed will be watching this report to see if they should raise interest rates. While it would be nice to get a little something for keeping money in a bank, it seems like the Fed will follow the economy’s lead and stay frozen.
The Conservative Party won an absolute majority in Parliament in Great Britain’s elections Thursday, ensuring not only that Prime Minister David Cameron will still reside at 10 Downing Street but that the party can govern alone after five years in a coalition. The results confounded British pollsters, who had predicted a tight race and perhaps even a loss for Conservatives, also called Tories. (Completely wrong polls sound quite familiar.) But National Review’s Andrew Stuttaford has a theory: “Where did the pollsters go wrong? Probably by underestimating the amount of ‘shy Tories’ that there are. Brits should pause to think of what it says about the country’s intellectual climate that so many voters on one side of the aisle are unwilling to disclose their voting preferences.” That, too, sounds sadly familiar.
Cameron ran on a referendum of the Tories’ record of turning around the nation’s economy. He defeated Ed Milliband, whose leftist Labour Party promised a return to a more robust, government-led agenda that would increase spending on entitlements. Labour’s loss was largely attributable to Scotland, where the Scottish National Party took 56 of 59 seats in a typical Labour stronghold. That could mean a new push for Scottish independence, though Cameron could perhaps head that off with a British version of American federalism, shifting more power to the four home nations of the United Kingdom.
Next up: a referendum by 2017 on British membership in the European Union.
Before the Senate Appropriations Committee on Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies, newly minted Attorney General Loretta Lynch outlined her proposed budget for the Department of Justice, backing rhetoric with proposed dollars for fixing the unrest in places like Baltimore. First, Lynch proposed boosting the money going to the Community Relations Service, a program arising out of the Civil Rights Act designed to smooth over racial and ethnic tension. But when the CRS glided into Ferguson last year, National Review’s Ryan Lovelace reported that it lectured residents on “white privilege” and the first town hall meetings disintegrated into shouting. Lynch also announced a proposed $69.5 million boost to the Community Oriented Policing Services to make America’s police force more diverse. “Again, it is efforts like these that may help to prevent situations like those in Ferguson and Baltimore,” Lynch said in her written testimony to the committee. Finally, the two-week-old AG suggested she will announce a DOJ probe investigating if Baltimore’s police department used excessive force. Lynch is doubling down and asking for more funding for the failed programs of the past, the very programs that didn’t prevent the problems we have now. More…

FEATURED RIGHT ANALYSIS
By Michael Swartz
If we told you that a 2016 presidential candidate said, “We’ve got to do several things, and I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigrants… Certainly, we’ve got to do more to our borders, and people have to stop employing illegal immigrants,” you would probably guess one of the GOP candidates. But while that may be the sentiment of a select few in the GOP field, the words were actually uttered by Hillary Clinton in 2003.
Ramping up for the 2016 election, however, Hillary has changed her tune, as millions of illegal aliens have now become prospective voters. Democrats today realize that these “new Americans” can become a huge voting bloc and put several states permanently out of reach to the GOP. So Hillary is now squarely in favor of “full and equal citizenship” for everyone who wants to come to America, illegally or not.
Hillary’s new message is that she would “go even further” than Obama if Congress doesn’t act. “I will fight for comprehensive immigration reform and a path to citizenship for you and for your families across our country,” Hillary told a Las Vegas audience. This includes not only the parents of so-called DREAMers but also illegal aliens who had already been deported but still have relatives here.
“I want to do everything we can to defend the president’s executive orders [on immigration] because I think they were certainly within his authority constitutionally,” she added. “Legally, they were based on precedent that I certainly believe is adequate. And then still try to go further and deal with some of these other issues like the reunification of families that were here and have been split up since the last eight, 10, 12 years.”
But even the Obama administration won’t say whether her idea is legal. “There may be a legal explanation [for her promises] that they have that you should ask them about,” stammered White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest.
So how will Republicans respond? It goes without saying that accusing Hillary of flip-flopping won’t get them very far, as Democrats are only held responsible for what they’re saying at precisely a given moment, subject to change depending on the audience. Moreover, being against unfettered immigration is now equated with racism, and Beltway Republicans run from that comparison like a squirrel from a dog. But the primary hurdle for Republicans is that they’re flip-flopping themselves.
In short, Republicans have no idea how to address the issue in a consistent, principled and conservative way.
But there is a sizable contingent of voters that is sick of mere talk about securing the border first; tired of the federal government standing in the way of states seeking to enforce their own immigration laws; worried about the direction of our nation; and disgusted by the unwillingness of this generation of immigrants to even attempt to assimilate. Yet the Chamber of Commerce and other amnesty proponents continue to move the needle. Competing forces remain in a tug-of-war for the Republican Party, paralyzing it and allowing Democrats to control the narrative.
Unfortunately, while Republicans dither on their response, the federal government is working overtime to bring in more potential “citizens.” By the time Hillary takes office in 2017, it won’t make any difference who she lets in anymore. And what she said in 2003 will be ancient history.

OPINION IN BRIEF
Tony Perkins: “Aaron and Melissa Klein don’t have much in common with Ray Kasper, convicted sexual predator. But they have even less in common, now that the Kleins have been kicked off GoFundMe — and Ray remains. The felon, who is fighting a ‘wrongful conviction’ for sexual assault, is just one of the shocking examples of the fundraising company’s hypocrisy. A week after pulling the financial rug out from under the Christian bakers fined $135,000 and florist Barronelle Stutzman, GoFundMe’s alleged policy against raising money for ‘formal charges of heinous crimes’ certainly rings hollow here. … All Melissa and Aaron Klein are guilty of is exercising the religious liberty the U.S. Constitution guarantees them — and for that, they were deemed unworthy of support by their fellow Americans. Obviously, the real reason had nothing to do with their litigation and everything to do with pressure from the radical Left. If GoFundMe wants to discriminate against Christians, that’s their business. But at least have the spine to come right out and say it instead of inventing a phony excuse about wrongdoing. One look at their website and it’s clear: the only thing that’s criminal is their application of company guidelines.”
Insight: “The most unresolved problem of the day is precisely the problem that concerned the founders of this nation: how to limit the scope and power of government. Tyranny, restrictions on human freedom, come primarily from governmental restrictions that we ourselves have set up.” —Milton Friedman (1912-2006)
Demo-gogues: “In America, our nation is stronger because we welcome and respect people of all faiths, and because we protect the fundamental right of all peoples to practice their faith how they choose, to change their faith, or to practice no faith at all, and to do so free from persecution and discrimination.” —Barack Obama (Unless, of course, you’re a Christian baker or florist who has objections to servicing a same-sex wedding, or an Armed Forces chaplain who offers biblical doctrine to a disgruntled serviceman, or a city official publicly expressing his Christian faith, ad nauseam…)
Non Compos Mentis: “Not right: A min. wage-earning single parent of two must work 50 hrs/week to escape poverty.” —Sen. Cory Booker, evidently opposed to hard work
Village Idiots: “There are so many kids in this country who look at places like museums and concert halls and other cultural centers and they think to themselves, ‘Well, that’s not a place for me, for someone who looks like me, for someone who comes from my neighborhood.’ In fact, I guarantee you that right now, there are kids living less than a mile from here who would never in a million years dream that they would be welcome in this museum.” —Michelle Obama, who seems to think museums are a haven for white supremacists
Dezinformatsia: “Well, [Team Clinton is], frankly, very confident about [the Benghazi] hearing. They think that at the end of the day, Hillary Clinton can take on that committee, and they’re going into it almost welcoming the opportunity, I think, to try to clear the air.” —MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell
And last… “The great thing about Hillary Clinton as a presidential candidate is that everyone already knows not to trust her.” —Frank Fleming

The successor to Father Gabriele Amorth, the Vatican’s former chief exorcist for 25 years, has come out in condemnation of fantasy novels and yoga, declaring both to cause demonic possession. Speaking to The Independent (UK), Father Cesare Truqui explained how the Roman Catholic Church has seen a steady uptick in reports of demonic possession all around the world, and that popular culture pastimes like reading Harry Potter novels and engaging in Vinyasa are largely to blame.
The popularity of many modern television shows, movies and novels that glorify “demonic” creatures such as vampires and magical wizards has apparently led both young and old alike to engage in certain activities that the Vatican says summon satanic spirits, claims Professor Giuseppe Ferrari. Ferrari recently attended a meeting in Rome where Catholic authorities and delegates discussed how to deal with this alleged demonic possession crisis.
Demonic characters in shows like True Blood and The Vampire Diaries are often portrayed as beautiful human beings with desirable characteristics and superpowers, which may lure the unsuspecting into dabbling in the occult. Father Cesare says he’s seen many an individual speaking in tongues and exhibiting unearthly strength, two attributes that his religion says indicate the possibility of evil spirits inhabiting a person’s body.

|Why the California water crisis will lead to a housing collapse, municipal bankruptcies and a mass exodus of climate refugeesPosted: 08 May 2015 06:18 AM PDT
The only proof you need that many Californians are still living in a water fairy tale is the fact that California real estate prices haven’t yet collapsed. Even as the California Governor has declared a state of emergency — and emergency water rationing is under way — there are still people purchasing commercial and residential real estate in precisely the areas that will be hardest hit by that rationing. What is the value of a home or business that has no functioning connection to a water system? Essentially ZERO.
How many California homes and businesses are headed for a zero-water future? Many millions. How many Californians are aware of all this and already have their homes on the market so they can move somewhere else? A very small number… a tiny fraction of the total number of home and property owners invested there. What these people are unfortunately not yet seeing is the catastrophic consequences of a continued drought and how it can utterly destroy the value of their property.
To understand what’s coming, you first need to understand the dynamics of real estate valuations. Here’s a question for you: How many homeowners selling their homes does it take to collapse real estate prices? The answer may surprise you. On any given day in most areas, fewer than 1% of homes are for sale. (99+% of homes are not for sale.) FULL REPORT
|5 Prophetic Words About Shaking and Awakening in AmericaPosted: 08 May 2015 06:07 AM PDT
Written By Joe Joe Dawson – I asked the Lord to wake me when He wanted to speak to me and for five nights in a row at 3 a.m., He answered that prayer. The following are five prophetic words the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart. I pray they touch yours.
Day 1: The Lord spoke early this morning about the future of the American church. I saw a person walk to the edge of a cliff overlooking a huge valley. The Man of God started shouting to the masses and they got up and started moving toward him. Thousands!
The Lord said complacency was leaving and people were ready to move forward. The America church has tried to advice thought programs and worldly structure, but have produced an Ishmael, but now Isaac is on his way! There is a Move of God coming to the church an Awakening!
Day 2: The Lord woke me early this morning … I felt my bed shake so I jumped up! The Lord spoke very strongly and boldly saying, “Will you answer this call or should I call another?” I said, “I will answer your call.”
The Lord said there is a greater shaking coming to America then anyone can imagine. I’m calling the leaders now. They will be the ones of intercession. The broken ones. They have been preparing for years. The current success the American church thinks she has, will have to be repented for. The American church has produced a Ishmael now its time for Isaac. I’ve never felt God so strong, my friends! We are about to see repentance in our churches from leaders who have taken the focus off God. I encourage everyone to fast and pray. Get ready!
Day 3: The Lord says He is making an offensive response to every demonic attack on America. The Lord is putting His armies in place. This will be a wave, and yes, even greater waves are coming of the responsive attacks from heaven. God wants his people and land back!
Day 4: The Lord woke me at 3 a.m. this morning speaking very strongly about this hour in the church. The Lord said, “I need my watchmen to be alert and ready at all hours!” When the Spirit wakes you get up and pray, don’t pray in bed or roll over. This is the time God needs us to be seeking Him. Everything is silent with no hindrances at this time of Day. Whenever God wants your time, give it to Him. Don’t be sleeping when you should be seeking!
Day 5: This morning the Lord spoke a very strong word to my spirit about the revivalists in the land. Many are falling away from the fight and giving up their calling. Like Elijah the powerful mouthpiece for God, when things got hard he complained and quit. So God raised up Elisha! Never watch someone else answer the call GOD placed on your life. MORE

|Hepatitis C-related illness and death increasing in ArkansasPosted: 08 May 2015 06:00 AM PDT
Hepatitis C is now the leading cause or factor in more deaths than HIV in Arkansas, according to new research by Arkansas Department of Health. In a news release, the ADH suggests Hep C related deaths happened almost two times more than HIV related deaths.
The research also showed hospitalizations nearly doubled in the last 8 years with 2,837 in 2004 and 4,141 in 2012. Hep C is a virus that spreads when blood from a person infected with the virus enters someone who is not infected. ADH encourages anyone born between 1945 and 1965 to get tested at least once at one of the 94 county health units across the state. MORE

|Powerful Storm to Bring Hail, High Winds and TornadoesPosted: 08 May 2015 05:54 AM PDT
A storm will bring a wide range of weather to the West into the Mother’s Day weekend as it drops across California and turns eastward toward the Rockies and High Plains. In addition to spreading cooler air through much of the Southwest, the storm system will bring everything from gusty thunderstorms with spotty hail and locally drenching downpours to blowing dust, a couple of tornadoes and snow.The storm will bring hazards for those traveling on the highways, ranging from poor visibility to wet roads and slushy snow in the passes well inland.
Cold air aloft associated with the storm will first create spotty downpours through Friday from California to much of Nevada, Utah and northern Arizona. Rain of any amount is generally welcomed in California at this stage. However, the nature of the pattern will not deliver enough rain to significantly impact the extreme drought. Some of the downpours could strengthen into locally gusty thunderstorms with hail. A small number of the strongest storms could produce a tornado or waterspout in California. MORE

|7,000 Soldiers to Be Permanently Deployed on Streets of FrancePosted: 08 May 2015 04:56 AM PDT
French President Francois Hollande announced 7,000 of the 10,000 soldiers deployed on the country’s streets after the Islamist attacks in January will remain permanently. French police have been on high alert after Islamist gunmen left 17 people dead over three days in attacks on the magazine Charlie Hebdo, a Jewish grocery store and police. The military patrols will guard sensitive sites throughout France in light of the threat of more attacks. France’s miliary presence in the African Sahel region and the Central African Republic has also raised the domestic threat level.
Although Hollande called the soldiers’ presence a “significant effort … even a very big effort” in light of its stretch on the burgeoning French budget, a French official who requested anonymity said that the presence of soldiers could not stem terror attacks. Speaking to the AFP, the official said, “The number of targets has exploded. There are two or three thousand, maybe four thousand, people identified or suspected of evil intentions.” Counter-terrorism experts in France warned last month that the threat of Islamist attacks in France had reached a level “without precedent.”
According to French authorities, close to 800 French jihadists have joined the fight in Syria and Iraq. Four hundred are reportedly still fighting, while 260 have left.

|Violent bond moves signal tectonic shifts in global marketsPosted: 08 May 2015 04:48 AM PDT
A wave of turmoil is sweeping through sovereign bond markets, setting off the most dramatic gyrations seen in recent years and threatening to spill over into over-heated equity markets. Yields on German 10-year Bunds spiked violently by almost 20 basis points to 0.78pc in early trading on Thursday as funds scrambled to unwind the so-called “QE trade” in Europe, with powerful ripple effects reaching Japan, Australia, Brazil and even US Treasuries.
“It is absolute pandemonium in the fixed income markets,” said Andrew Roberts, head of European credit at RBS. “Everybody has been trying to get out of long-duration positions at the same time but the door is getting smaller.” German yields fell back just as fast to 0.58pc later, as bargain-hunters came back into the European debt markets, but are still unrecognisable from the historic lows of 0.07pc two weeks ago.
Ructions of this magnitude are extremely rare in government bond markets. Investors are nursing almost half a trillion dollars in paper losses in two weeks, a staggering sum in what is supposed to be a rock-solid repository for institutional investors. MORE

|China Warns Philippines Military to Stay Away from Disputed TerritoryPosted: 08 May 2015 04:44 AM PDT
China has warned Philippine military planes six times to leave disputed areas of the South China Sea and may be “testing the waters” to see if it can establish a no-fly zone in the region, senior Philippine military officials said. “As we were conducting routine maritime air patrols and flying in international airspace, our air force aircraft were challenged over the radio,” Vice Admiral Alexander Lopez told a Senate hearing in Manila on Thursday.
While Lopez did not provide a timeframe, another senior Philippine air force official who asked to not be identified told Reuters that the six warnings had come in the past three months. That official added that China could be “testing the waters” to see if it can enforce an air exclusion zone above the Spratly archipelago of the South China Sea, where multiple countries have overlapping territorial claims.

|Obama Is Flooding America With Over 100K+ Muslim Immigrants YearlyPosted: 08 May 2015 04:31 AM PDT
THE MUSLIM IMMIGRATION WARNINGS OFFERED BY DUTCH POLITICIAN GEERT WILDERS—WHO WAS IN THE FACILITY IN GARLAND, TEXAS, THAT WAS ATTACKED BY TERRORISTS LAST WEEKEND—SEEM TO BE COMING TRUE.
Wilders, who has asked his own parliament to hold an exhibition on the Muhammed cartoons from the Garland, Texas event, has warned frequently that high levels of Muslim immigration without assimilation to the Western world—Europe and the United States of America—are dangerous to the culture and values of the West A featured speaker at the Garland event, Wilders has been on a terror hit list since 2010 for proposing to place a tax on the Hijab worn by Muslim women in the Netherlands.
He has also been vocal about stopping all Muslim immigration into the Netherlands.“Take a walk down the street and see where this is going,” Wilders, referring to growing Muslim immigration into his country, previously said. “You no longer feel like you are living in your own country. There is a battle going on and we have to defend ourselves. Before you know it there will be more mosques than churches!” MORE

Anjem Choudary Demands The Death Of ‘Jewish Pig’ Pamela Geller On Fox News (VIDEO)
Islamic Imam Anjem Choudary told Pamela Geller tonight that she should be slaughtered for her Texas cartoon contest.
“And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.” Genesis 16:12 (KJV)
Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary, on Fox News yesterday, not only called for Sharia Law over all of America, he bluntly stated that the Jewish Pamela Geller was “worse than a pig”, and that she deserved to die. Welcome to another church service of the “religion of peace”.
Choudary said Geller should be put before a court and tried, and she would end up punished. Geller shot back, “To blame me and say that my cartoons are controversial… murdering cartoonists is controversial.”
They got into a shouting match and Choudary told her she “knew the consequences.” They continued fighting, Choudary went off on a tangent about the U.S. “murdering innocent people,” and Hannity ended by calling him “evil and pathetic.”
The best exchange of the interview happened when Pam, who was constantly being interrupted by Choudary, said ““I’m talking, sir… I know you’re used to stepping over women but you’re not going to have it here.”’
That was awesome, she has more guts than any 10 of our political leaders combined. She’s as brave as she is beautiful.
We here at NTEB ask all Christians to pray for our friend Pamela Geller, that the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ would keep her safe.

Census Data Confirms Obama Is Flooding America With Over 100K+ Muslim Immigrants Yearly
The Muslim immigration warnings offered by Dutch politician Geert Wilders—who was in the facility in Garland, Texas, that was attacked by terrorists last weekend—seem to be coming true.
Wilders, who has asked his own parliament to hold an exhibition on the Muhammed cartoons from the Garland, Texas event, has warned frequently that high levels of Muslim immigration without assimilation to the Western world—Europe and the United States of America—are dangerous to the culture and values of the West.
A featured speaker at the Garland event, Wilders has been on a terror hit list since 2010 for proposing to place a tax on the Hijab worn by Muslim women in the Netherlands. He has also been vocal about stopping all Muslim immigration into the Netherlands.
“Take a walk down the street and see where this is going,” Wilders, referring to growing Muslim immigration into his country, previously said. “You no longer feel like you are living in your own country. There is a battle going on and we have to defend ourselves. Before you know it there will be more mosques than churches!”
Wilders’ warning rings true not just in the Netherlands, but in the United States as well.
Immigrants from the Middle East are currently the fastest growing immigration demographic coming into the U.S., a recent report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. America in just three years imported more immigrants from the Middle East than from Mexico and Central America combined.
In that three years, there has been a 13 percent growth in the number of immigrants from Middle Eastern countries. And according to the Conservative Review, the immigrant population from the Middle East will double in fifteen years and triple by 2050.
In fact, the United Nations is currently planning to settle roughly one million refugees – mostly Muslims – in western countries, Fox News reports.
Senior Editor of Conservative Review Daniel Horowitz argues against the increasing number of refugees. “We should only grant refugee status to those we can absolutely determine will be an asset to our country. It’s not our job or responsibility to incur risk when it is unclear which refugees have proclivities towards Islamic extremism,” Horowitz wrote.
The Changing Muslim Demographics Around The World:
A report derived from information from the 9/11 Commission and the Center for Immigration Studies validates Horowitz’s concerns. The study revealed that, out of 94 foreign-born terrorists operating inside the United States, 59 of them committed immigration fraud before or during terrorist activity.
Census data reveals roughly 100,000 Muslim immigrants are admitted to the United States each year. Immigrants who enter the U.S. legally are entitled to welfare, U.S. jobs and to vote.
Horowitz warns that the increasing Muslim population, coupled with President Obama’s unwillingness to identify Islamic extremism, creates a national security threat.
“With immigration and our legal ports of entry representing the front lines in the war on terror, in conjunction with this president’s unwillingness to recognize the threat from Islamic extremism, our homeland security has already been shut down for years,” said Horowitz.

Why Iran is Fearless: They Await the Mahdi
The Twelfth Imam, Mohammed al- Mahdi, was a five-year-old boy who escaped the clutches of the Sunnis. The traditions of Twelver Shiism, the official religion of the Islamic Republic of Iran, claim that he disappeared under mysterious circumstances in the year 874, but remained alive. After his disappearance, he communicated to the world through four agents who died out in 941. At that point the Twelfth Imam went silent, entering the period of “Great Occultation.”
The Prophecies That Are Coming True Before Our Eyes
If you were to ask someone on the street “What is your history? Tell me about your roots…”, he or she may not be able to tell you. They may be able to discuss grandparents or perhaps greatgrandparents. But Jews could take you on a journey through 4000 years of time. And they are still living that history. The words of the bible live on in modern-day Israel. Jeremy Gimple, Rabbi Berel Wein, Jon Voight and others for a simple lesson in “Prophecy coming alive”.

Obama to back Palestinian state at Security Council – payback for Israel’s right-wing cabinet
US President Barack Obama did not wait for Binyamin Netanyahu to finish building his new government coalition by its deadline at midnight Wednesday, May 6, before going into action to pay him back for forming a right-wing cabinet minus any moderate figure for resuming negotiations with the Palestinians.
Banking on Netanyahu’s assertion while campaigning for re-election that there would be no Palestinian state during his term in office, Obama is reported exclusively by our sources to have given the hitherto withheld green light to European governments to file a UN Security Council motion proclaiming an independent Palestinian state.
Social Media Obsession Costing Some People Their Marriage
She began to post picture after picture of herself, acquired 5,000 Facebook friends and a thousand followers. Gradually, her husband discovered she was trading messages with ex-boyfriends. The battles began.
“Okay so you dated this guy… and you’re friends with him? And you’re messaging him?” Shari said.
The marriage ended. It’s not the only one. A growing number of divorcing spouses blame social media for playing a part in their divorce. A survey by Censuswide suggests its one divorce in seven.
The Wild, Wild West
Then we have Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s speech the other day at the 226th Inaugural Anniversary of George Washington. If you didn’t hear it, listen here. I only hope that the people in power also listened, because he pretty much bottom lined the predicament of the West and specifically, the United States.
In a nut shell, Dr. Dobson calls for repentance; and Rabbi Cahn explains why what is about to happen is going to happen. And that is because we as a nation, nor the West, have no plans to repent. Life is good.
FAITH CRIMES – How Bad Is It?
How courageous Christians practicing their religion are being persecuted in Obama’s America
But there is another story of growing Christian persecution, which – if not as terrible in scale and severity – is even more inexplicable. That is the rapidly expanding marginalization, demonization and criminalization of the free practice of the Christian faith in the United States of America – a nation uniquely founded upon religious liberty.
Obama IRS Targets Churches
The Obama Internal Revenue Service scandal is about more than the targeting and suppressing of President Obama’s perceived political opponents; it is about using the power of the tax collector to subvert the First Amendment, including the fundamental protection of the God-given right to exercise one’s religious convictions.
Rick Warren’s ‘The Daniel Plan’ Named Christian Book of the Year
NOTE: This shows the pathetic state of the church today. “Daniel Plan” doctors are at best “New Age” and at worst, blatant occultists. That this outfit couldn’t discern that is shocking. — OTM

Christian Today reports “The Daniel Plan” by Warren, Dr. Daniel Amen and Dr. Mark Hyman offers a biblical perspective to weight loss. It emphasizes getting healthy in a group for support.
Christian Singer Amy Grant Partners With Pro-Abortion Gates Foundation

According to Berean Research :
Christian recording artist Amy Grant is joining forces with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to push birth control and contraceptives in developing nations. Since Grant says she is pro-life it seems odd that she would work with any foundation that has given pro-abortion groups millions of dollars to advance their agenda. According to LifeNews:
“Planned Parenthood of America, the International Planned Parenthood Federation, and Planned Parenthood of Western Washington about $71 million from before 2009 through 2013. Additionally, the Gates Foundation gave $46.1 million to Marie Stopes International in 2012 alone.
Much of this giving is focused on Africa, Asia, and Latin America, where abortion-providers like Planned Parenthood, Marie Stopes, and Ipas seek to overturn pro-life laws and sometimes even provide illicit abortion drugs.”
Amy Grant is asking her fans to join her in her work. Sadly, her work now includes a partnership with a staunchly pro-abortion foundation.
Nebraska Woman Files Suit Against All Homosexuals
by Marsha West
The woman who filed the lawsuit, although well-meaning, is not helping the cause of Christ. Many people will conclude that Christians are fools. NBC News fills us in on the details:
A Nebraska woman identifying herself as the “ambassador” for plaintiffs “God and His Son, Jesus Christ,” is suing all homosexuals on Earth for breaking “religious and moral laws,” according to court records filed Tuesday.
In the suit, entered into the docket as Driskell v. Homosexuals, Sylvia Ann Driskell, 66, of Auburn, Nebraska, asks in a seven-page, neatly handwritten petition (PDF) that U.S. District Judge John M. Gerrard decide once and for all whether homosexuality is or isn’t a sin.
Humanities Professor Gives Christian Student Zeroes for Rejecting Anti-Christian Teachings
by Marsha West
Christian News Network reports:
A Christian student in Florida has obtained legal assistance after her humanities professor gave her four zeroes for refusing to conform to assignments that she believed to be anti-Christian indoctrination.
Grace Lewis, 16, (pictured) is a dual-enrolled student enrolled in a virtual school from home. She has been taking college courses from Polk State College since last fall and has a 3.9 grade point average.
However, Lewis recently was given four straight zeros in her humanities class by Professor Lance “L.J.” Russum for being unwilling to answer his assignments about Christianity in the way that he wanted—which she believed was antithetical to, and hostile to, the faith.

Have You Ever Wondered Why America Is Not Listed Among The Nations In Bible Prophecy?
Is America is on the verge of being judged and destroyed by God Almighty?
“That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” 2 Thessalonians 2:2,1 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: As Bible believers, we know and understand that the Rapture of the Church will occur before the time of Jacob’s Trouble, the Great Tribulation of Matthew 24 and Luke 21. But that does not mean that we get off the hook scot-free. Paul says that a great falling away from the faith will happen before the Rapture, and he also says that we will see the Antichrist revealed before the Rapture. Thus we present this to you for your prayerful consideration. We are not trying to alarm you so much as we want to wake. you. up. and to get you prepared for the coming days of prophecy that lay ahead. Click here to read Part 1 of this series.
J.D. Faraq is the Pastor of Calvary Chapel Kaneohe in Hawaii. Every week, he records for YouTube, a Mid-East Prophecy Update as a part of his sermon. Because he was born and raised in Lebanon, he’s well qualified to give a unique perspective and insight into that region with regard to these end of days and what the Bible predicts will happen.
In his update on 4/26/15, he stated that one of the most frequent questions he gets from YouTube viewers is this: ‘Does America fit into the prophetic equation?’ He stated “I don’t believe it does. Absent repentance and revival, America is a done deal.”
He went on to say that America is on the verge of being judged and destroyed by God, “And even if this country IS the Babylon spoken of in Revelation, then we’re probably even closer to the end by virtue of the prophecy regarding Babylon’s sudden destruction.” I’m sad to say I concur with his assessment, especially when adding all the available data I and many others have been gathering.
Mid-East Prophecy Update – April 26th, 2015:
In Part 1 of this article, I told you about the upcoming military exercise, Jade Helm 15, to be conducted in this country from July 15 thru September 15, 2015. Many people, including active duty and veterans all across the armed services, are nervous about what this might bring. Is this the precursor to martial law being instituted in America? Are they going to start confiscating our guns and dragging us off to the FEMA camps?
I can’t tell you for certain that these things will happen as a result of Jade Helm. However, gun confiscation and the round-up of political dissidents WILL most assuredly occur in the not too distant future. ‘Balderdash,’ you say? ‘Our government will never do something like that—besides, the military would never turn on their fellow citizens.’ Really?? Well, guess what?
This has already happened. After Hurricane Katrina, the National Guard went door-to-door in New Orleans, yelling “National Guard! Does anyone need assistance?” as they broke in. They made illegal entry at gunpoint, into the private homes of American citizens, in direct violation of the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution, and confiscated any guns they could find. One guardsman recounted, “Only a couple of people resisted verbally and they were quickly thrown down, cuffed and thrown in the back of police cars.”
So, don’t tell me it will never happen. It already did! ‘But,’ you say, ‘they’ll never declare martial law all over the country.’ Is that so? Remember the Boston Marathon bombing? Were you not paying attention as hundreds of National Guardsmen, state and local police locked the city of Boston down, ordering residents to “shelter in place?”
MSNBC Host Caught Lying About Boston Martial Law:
Remember watching on the news as these para-military officers, all outfitted in their G.I. Joe soldier gear, riding in their armored vehicles with gun turrets mounted on the top, stormed in groups onto the front porches of private citizens, pounding on the door, ordering the residents to open up?
Go on YouTube and view cell-phone footage of innocent homeowners being ordered out of their houses AT GUNPOINT, hands raised above their heads, some barefoot and in bathrobes, to be pawed and searched on the sidewalk as other officers tramped through their homes, again confiscating any weapons they happened to find. This went on hour after hour, and for what? To hunt down one unarmed teenage boy!
Actually, it was what they call a psyop; a psychological operation designed to test what the response would be from ordinary folks having their freedoms raped in their own country. Sadly, no one resisted this illegal outrage. Not one person. Now, they know they can get away with it, with nary a sniff from the citizens. Will Jade Helm be the same? Again, I don’t know.
I do believe Jade Helm is being held for the purpose of prepositioning men and equipment for when the Powers That Be do declare martial law. It probably won’t be instituted this summer, but they’ll have everything in place for the right time and the Wal-Marts will be their staging area.
BUT…something dreadful is in the works and coming to America soon. I told you I would give you my opinion as to what’s coming, so I’ll spend the rest of this article explaining what I suspect and why. The Lord just shook the world’s hub of Hinduism in Nepal. That was just the beginning.
“See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from Him that speaketh from heaven. Whose voice then shook the earth: but now He hath promised, saying, ‘Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.’ And this word, ‘Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.’ Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire.” Hebrews 12:25-29 (KJV)
Surely by now, you’re awake enough to fully understand we’re living in the very end of days before the Lord Jesus Christ snatches His Bride off this earth and the Father pours out His wrath on the wicked, and deals with Israel. I’ve been taught that a particular sequence of events would occur in this time, but I’m beginning to see that we can’t put God into our preformed box and expect Him to stay there.
The Lord doesn’t usually like to come in the front door. He loves to receive glory and acclaim for His amazing works. No, the front door is for losers. HE likes to come through the window, down the chimney or up through the basement. He loves to do the unexpected to show off His might and strength. Therefore, I’m positive events will NOT play out exactly the way Pastor Brown or Sunday school teacher Sue, taught.
Time to step into the rabbit hole.
(PLEASE NOTE: We do not put stock in modern-day “prophets”, we have the whole Bible as our guide. But we mention Efrain Rodriguez here because the United States military seems to be taking his prophecy quite seriously, and we felt you should know about it from that perspective.)
In 2010, a Puerto Rican man named Efrain Rodriguez wrote a letter to NASA warning that Almighty God had revealed to him that a large asteroid is going to collide with Earth. It will hit the ocean slightly west of Puerto Rico, strike a fault line and cause a 200-400 foot high tsunami to travel into the Gulf of Mexico and all the way up the Eastern Seaboard of America, wiping out coastal cities. It will cause a 10+ earthquake across the world, trigger volcanic eruptions and split America in two up the New Madrid fault line.
Of course, NASA laughed at him. However, in late 2010, news of a huge influx of military equipment, MRE’s, body bags, ammunition and the black, plastic FEMA coffins started to leak out of Puerto Rico. Reporters took notice and people started questioning the sudden governmental activity. Here is an article from Veterans Today describing this prediction.
At the same time, American military contractors were ordered to stop building vehicles for Iraq, and to immediately start building Combat Bridge Trucks (CBT) and Dry Support Bridge Trucks. Both of these military vehicles are designed for use in water disaster areas where roads and bridges are destroyed. They help span waterways, to reconstruct roads and bridges. This was a ‘rush’ order and over 100 of these vehicles were shipped to Puerto Rico. The rest were for use here in the states.
Efrain Rodriguez is not a pastor or evangelist. He travels around warning about this event. He’s not out for money and he’s not crazy by any stretch of the imagination. He does not know WHEN this event will happen but he has given a general outline of what he says will occur.
Interestingly enough, Efrain says this is NOT part of the Tribulation. It is the judgment of God Almighty on America as well as the Caribbean, areas that are rife with hedonism and witchcraft. It’s the Lord’s wake-up call for the apostate church, meant to cause her to repent and turn to Him for cleansing, to get her ready to be taken in the soon coming rapture.
“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.” Daniel 12:4, 8-9 (KJV)
I’m not even mentioning all I’ve read about ISIS infiltrating our wide-open borders, preparing for multiple terror attacks. September 13th will have a solar eclipse, and is the end of this Shemitah year. If past history is any indication, America’s economy will collapse on that day. If you’re not sure what the Shemitah is, please look it up. Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, who wrote The Harbinger, discovered the Shemitah cycle as it pertains to the United States.
I know this all sounds crazy. I’ve had a difficult time digesting all this myself, and I’m not even giving you 50% of all I’ve read and watched. September 23-24 is the start of a Year of Jubilee. September 23rd is also Yom Kippur, Day of Atonement. September 25th is the final Blood Moon of the tetrad. Many things converge in September of this year, and it is my guess that’s when this will occur. Of course, the Lord is in charge of His plans and timing. But consider…
America has not repented of her sins. Our disgusting, treasonous president betrayed the Apple of God’s Eye, Israel, by disclosing their classified nuclear weapons cache and program for the whole world to see. He is snubbing them more every day while playing footsie with their avowed enemy, Iran, and America will pay dearly for that. Our Supreme Court is considering changing the very foundation of society by approving sodomite marriage. Our sins just keep piling up.
“Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but He revealeth His secret unto His servants, the prophets.” Amos 3:7 (KJV)
I’ve included several resources for you to look at and pray over. I ask that you take the time to do so. This is no joke. As a watchman on the wall, I MUST warn of the things I see coming. We ARE in the final seconds of the Age of Grace. Tomorrow is promised to no man. If these events are unleashed upon this world, millions will die. Are you ready to stand before your Creator? Are you covered by the blood of the precious Lamb of God? Are your sins forgiven? TODAY is the day of salvation, people. Please, wake up.
After you’ve reviewed this material, please warn your family and friends. Make sure you share the Gospel with them. Don’t be a coward and say nothing! The days of worrying what men think of you are over. Get over your ego and sound the warning to get ready. Judgment IS coming to America and she will be totally destroyed. Maranatha, Lord Jesus!
