Threat to evacuate U.S. diplomats from Iraq raises fear of war Washington has made preparations to withdraw diplomats from Iraq after warning Baghdad it could shut its embassy, two Iraqi officials and two Western diplomats said, a step Iraqis fear could turn their country into a battle zone. Any move by the United States to scale down its diplomatic presence in a country where it has up to 5,000 troops would be widely seen in the region as an escalation of its confrontation with Iran, which Washington blames for missile and bomb attacks.
Study: Persecution having reverse effect in Iran A spokesperson for an international Christian organization is glad to have proof showing that more and more Iranians are turning to Christ.
Research conducted by The Group for Analyzing and Measuring Attitudes in Iran estimates that about 350,000 Iranians have recently converted to the Christian faith, though the number might actually be higher. Their statisticians questioned 50,000 Iranians, 90 percent of whom live in the country, and Claire Evans of International Christian Concern (ICC) tells OneNewsNow the result was surprising.
We can't make America great without God There are only two things that can save America: first, God, and second, the instruments of God, His people. We must be collaborators with Him in the saving of America.

US-brokered Israel-Lebanon talks on sea & land border disputes off to a good start

Overnight, there were another 10 deaths raising the total to 1,375.
Are we living in the Tribulation right now? No, absolutely not. Yes, times are very difficult right now, but this isn't anything God didn't know would come to pass.

Is Peace At Hand In The Middle East?
Having presided over the recognition of Israel by the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, President Donald Trump has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize amid talk of peace breaking out across the region. Assuredly, this is a major diplomatic breakthrough, and Nancy's Pelosi's sour-grapes dismissal of the deal as a "distraction" testifies to that truth.
Will the Peace Accords Stabilize the Middle East?
From a biblical prophecy standpoint, how are we to regard these peace accords that the Trump administration refers to as the "Abrahamic Accord?" Opinions vary widely within the Christian community. Many welcomed the news of these agreements and praised the President and his team for achieving these milestone accords.
Others, such as a popular prophecy speaker, did not share the excitement of those celebrating the deals. He criticized them because of the dividing of the Land inherent in them, which is also a feature of the Deal of the Century unveiled back in January.
AreWeLivingInTheLastDays: One thing we know for sure according to the Bible... Before the War of Gog and Magog, according to Ezekiel 38:10-12, Israel will be "living securely without walls and feeling a sense of great peace in its region".

Trump Rips Into Critical Race Theory, Says Teaching It To Kids 'A Form Of Child Abuse' Speaking at the National Archives on Constitution Day, President Donald Trump ripped Critical Race Theory - the left-wing ideology that purports that racism is an effectively permanent and inescapable feature of American society - saying that it was a form of child abuse to teach it to children. "This is a marxist doctrine, holding that America is a wicked and racist nation - that even young children are complicit in oppression - and that our entire society must be radically transformed," said Trump.
Pro-Communist China Group Funding Black Lives Matter-Linked Organization The pro-communist China group, the Chinese Progressive Association (CPA) in San Francisco, is actively funding a venture by Black Lives Matter (BLM) co-founder and unabashedly anti-capitalist Alicia Garza.

Here's how George Soros is funding today's riots & chaos Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich was awkwardly cut off yesterday by Fox News hosts after he correctly explained how George Soros is funding today's riots and chaos: he uses money to elect corrupt District Attorneys throughout the nation, who then release criminals onto the streets. So, why is Soros off limits? Glenn says he won't play the game of the mainstream media, and he'll continue to expose Soros. Because his fingerprints are everywhere.
Soros-Backed Coalition Preparing for Post-Election Day Chaos - 'We're Going to Fight Like Hell'

'Southern' being mothballed - a sign of the times? Southern Baptist churches around the U.S. are dropping the word "Southern" from their name – and in many cases are branding themselves "Great Commission Baptists" instead. Dr. JD Greear, president of the Southern Baptist Convention. announced this week that the theme of the 2021 Annual Meeting will be "We Are Great Commission Baptists." He said his Summit Church in the Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina-area will begin identifying itself as a Great Commission Baptist Church, a move he says churches around the country are exploring to replace the Southern Baptist label.

Bill Salus: Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the UAE in Prophecy...
Saudi Arabia is back in the news again and that has some Bible prophecy pundits warning that a 2600-year old biblical prediction could be about to happen! In one of his most detailed apocalyptic writings, the prophet Ezekiel identifies the nation of Saudi Arabia in his 38th chapter.
This ancient prophecy informs of a forthcoming massive invasion of Israel in the last days. It identifies an invading coalition that appears to be led by Russia and includes Turkey, Iran and nine populations in total.
In addition to this intimidating list of invaders, Ezekiel identifies a group of nations that appear to be contesting the evil intentions of this coalition. The verse below explains the sinister motives of the invaders and identifies the concerned protesters.
Thursday 17, September 2020
Historic peace treaty, or preparation for the antichrist? Both can be true. For evangelical Christians, it is difficult to look at major developments in the Middle East without wondering about biblical prophecy. Should we rejoice over the historic peace treaty between Israel and the UAE and Bahrain? Or is this leading to a dangerous, false peace that will only hasten the reign of the antichrist? Let's first recognize just how historic this peace treaty actually is.
Pompeo: We'll enforce new sanctions on Iran starting next week

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, earlier this month announced they will donate $300 million to two nonpartisan nonprofits. The groups, the Center for Tech and Civic Life and Center for Election Innovation and Research, will funnel the money to local officials working "to ensure that everyone can vote and every vote can be counted," Zuckerberg said in announcing the donation.

Israel signs pacts with 2 Arab states: A 'new' Mideast?
Israel on Tuesday signed historic diplomatic pacts with two Gulf Arab states at a White House ceremony that President Donald Trump declared will mark the "dawn of a new Middle East," casting himself as an international peacemaker at the height of his reelection campaign.
The bilateral agreements formalize the normalization of Israel's already thawing relations with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain in line with their common opposition to Iran. But the agreements do not address the decades-long conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, who view the pacts as a stab in the back from their fellow Arabs and a betrayal of their cause for a Palestinian state.
Trump says Saudi Arabia among 7-9 countries expected to make peace with Israel
US President Donald Trump said Tuesday he expected Saudi Arabia to normalize relations with Israel following the diplomatic move taken by Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates at a White House ceremony earlier.

Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) and The Center for Morality tells OneNewsNow Burger King is promoting sexual deviance in the name of love with its new "Love Conquers All" slogan.
"It's sad because woke corporations are now in the vanguard of cultural Marxism," LaBarbera laments. "This stunt by Burger King has nothing to do with selling burgers and fries and everything to do with selling perversion and the left's sexual agenda."
Shocking warning from Limbaugh if Biden beats Trump in November
If Joe Biden defeats President Trump in the November election, it will mean the "end of democracy" and leave only one political party in power, warns popular radio host Rush Limbaugh. "If the Democrats win, if Biden wins this election with Kamala Harris or whoever that they put up there, that's the end of democracy. It's the end of the two-party system," Limbaugh said Tuesday.
"We're gonna have a one-party government that is going to devote itself to eliminating all opposition. That's what's at stake. If they win, I think the Republican Party essentially ceases to exist." The self-described "doctor of democracy" stressed the change would happen quickly.
Black leaders: BLM about overthrow of U.S., not race
Many black leaders contend the growing Black Lives Matter movement isn't really about empowering blacks, it's about destroying the American system and rebuilding it according to Marxist principles.
The leaders recognize, points out Gatestone Institute senior fellow Soeren Kern, that Black Lives Matter is "an ideological descendant of the Black Power Movement, the Black Panthers, the Black Liberation Army and the Weather Underground."

Officials: Iran weighing plot to kill U.S. ambassador to South Africa The Iranian government is weighing an assassination attempt against the American ambassador to South Africa, U.S. intelligence reports say, according to a U.S. government official familiar with the issue and another official who has seen the intelligence. News of the plot comes as Iran continues to seek ways to retaliate for President Donald Trump's decision to kill a powerful Iranian general earlier this year, the officials said. If carried out, it could dramatically ratchet up already serious tensions between the U.S. and Iran and create enormous pressure on Trump to strike back - possibly in the middle of a tense election season.
Trump issues stark warning to Iran after reports country is considering plot to assassinate US ambassador
President Trump took to Twitter late Monday to issue a stern warning to Iran that an assassination attempt or attack against the U.S. in retaliation of the airstrike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani earlier this year will be met with a counterattack that "will be 1,000 times greater in magnitude."
Trump cited recent reports that claim Tehran is considering an assassination attempt on Lana Marks, the United States' ambassador to South Africa. U.S. officials have been aware of threats against the ambassador since the spring, but intelligence suggests those threats have become more specific in recent weeks.
Iran says it has 1,044 active centrifuges at Fordow plant
The head of Iran's atomic agency said Sunday that 1,044 centrifuges were active at the Fordow uranium enrichment plant, in line with steps to reduce its commitments to the nuclear deal.

Bahrain is first Shiite-majority nation to establish ties with Israel
The announcement of a "historic US-Bahrain-Israel breakthrough to further peace in the Middle East," after the United Arab Republic, underlined the strategic realignment of the Middle East underway under the Trump baton. Israel and Gulf Arab nations were in furtive rapport for years, but its formal breakthrough to open ties happened because the long pan-Arab boycott fueled by hate and fear was ready to make way for normal relations when stimulated by the powerful mutual profit motive.

World wildlife plummets more than two-thirds in 50 years
Global animal, bird and fish populations have plummeted more than two-thirds in less than 50 years due to rampant over-consumption, experts said Thursday in a stark warning to save nature in order to save ourselves.

Why aren't you reading this story in the main stream media? Because Bill Gates has spent untold millions handing out his 'private grants' to new outlets to make sure they only report favorably about him, instead of reporting the truth like we are doing here for you right now.

Coronavirus czar: The High Holy Days terrify me Coronavirus czar Prof. Ronni Gamzu said he feels like he is "attacked with artillery" for trying to cure the country of the novel coronavirus, which will likely involve closures of cities with high infection rates. In one of his most impassioned speeches, Gamzu appealed to the Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee and haredi (ultra-Orthodox) Knesset members, stating that the "upcoming High Holy Days are terrifying" and that a nationwide closure is still on the table, though he does not want to think that way.
Large assemblies of mainline churches... on their way out? Hastened by preventative measures to contain the coronavirus pandemic, large biannual assemblies held by the Presbyterian Church (USA) - and perhaps by other mainline denominations that have leaned leftward over the years - may quickly become a thing of the past as their church membership continues to decline sharply. Even though Rev. J. Herbert Nelson II - stated clerk of the PC(USA) General Assembly - stops short of predicting the extinction of the highest legislative body of his denomination, he does forecast an abrupt end of its large convention hall events.
Liberal Washington Post: Count on catastrophic violence if Biden loses The Washington Post is warning America that only a decisive win for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will prevent catastrophic violence and utter mayhem across the nation.
Appealing to the same scare tactics used to frighten the world to jump on board with environmental alarmists to battle so-called climate change, Georgetown University professor Rosa Brooks - cofounder of the Transition Integrity Project - and her leftwing activist group contemplated war games by laying out "the four most likely scenarios" for the 2020 Presidential Election results.
In this case, it appears that a small group of World leaders, acting on their own accord apart from God's will, made geo-political deals that they thought were best for their own countries Middle East interests.
This move has some Prophecy teachers starting to say this will lead to the peaceful people of Ezekiel 38:11. My opinion is that this prophetic thinking is dangerously driven by newspaper exegesis because it doesn't address the core issue, which is the rallying call of the Islamic Arabs, which is those pesky "Palestinian refugees," i.e. "the tents of Edom" in Psalm 83.
The Pope's Top Climate Change Advisor Does Not Believe In God - But He Does Appear To Believe In 'Gaia' What kind of people is Pope Francis surrounding himself with? The fact that this Pope decided to choose German professor John Schellnhuber as his chief climate change advisor is raising a lot of eyebrows. Schellnhuber doesn't believe in God, but as you will see below, he does appear to believe in 'Gaia'. Schellnhuber has also advocated for the establishment of an "Earth Constitution", a "Global Council" directly elected by the citizens of the world, and a "Planetary Court" that would serve as the pinnacle of a planetary legal system. In addition, he believes that the "carrying capacity" of our planet is less than one billion people. This is the man that the Pope has chosen to advise him on the issue that Pope Francis has made the centerpiece of his papacy.
The report goes on to examine various pandemic diseases and the variety of factors that led to them, eventually getting to a conclusion that many of these "disease emergencies reflect our increasing inability to live in harmony with nature," pointing out that a number of pandemics have been exacerbated by "urbanization and crowding."

A Great Falling Away - 30 Percent Of Evangelicals Don't Believe Jesus Is God
Every four years, there is a tremendous amount of discussion about "evangelical voters" and the influence that they will have on the outcome of the presidential election.
Most of the pundits on CNN, MSNBC and Fox News speak of evangelicals as if they were this monolithic group that all generally vote the same way and generally believe the same basic things. Perhaps that was somewhat true at one time, but now things have dramatically changed.
As you will see below, surveys have found that large numbers of evangelicals are abandoning core evangelical beliefs at a rate that is staggering. In fact, it has gotten to a point where I am not even sure what an "evangelical Christian" is anymore.
Despite pressure from Trump, Arab nations resist normalizing ties with Israel When he announced a potentially historic deal last month in which Persian Gulf nation United Arab Emirates said it was preparing to recognize Israel, President Trump predicted other Arab states would quickly follow suit. But after two trips through the region by senior Trump advisors to build on what they hoped would be momentum from the Emirates deal, no other Arab nation has said it is willing to take the long-shunned leap to accept and recognize Israel as a legitimate Mideast neighbor, at least not until Israel resolves its conflict with Palestinians.
Sea of troubles: Tensions flare across Mediterranean as world powers jockey for power
The Mediterranean - an on-again, off-again geopolitical hot spot since before the pyramids were built - is emerging anew as a sea of division and instability, with powers including Russia, China, Turkey and Israel jostling aggressively for influence, natural resources and military advantage.
Moscow is eyeing a possible military base along the oil-rich shores of Libya. China is seeking investment deals across the region. Turkey is clashing with NATO partner Greece over drilling rights and militarized islands. Newly discovered offshore natural gas deposits have nations scrambling to stake their claims.
China may dump U.S. Treasuries as Sino-U.S. tensions flare: Global Times
China may gradually cut its holdings of U.S. Treasury bonds and notes, in light of rising tensions between Beijing and Washington, state-backed newspaper Global Times cited experts as saying.
With Sino-U.S. relations deteriorating over various issues including coronavirus, trade and technology, global financial markets are increasingly worried if China would sell the U.S. government debt it holds as a weapon to counter rising U.S. pressure.
Turkey Demolishes Iconic Christian Church, the 'Hagia Sophia of Bursa'
Turkish authorities razed to the ground the historic St. Georgios Christian church late Wednesday, an iconic structure known as the "Hagia Sophia of Bursa."
The Greek Orthodox Church of St. Georgios had been restored and transformed into a cultural center by the Nilüfer Municipality in Bursa. The municipality took over the church in 2006 and invested some 2 million Turkish lira in restorations, reopening it as the Özlüce Cultural House.
California legislators vote to protect sexual abusers If there was one thing we could all agree on, you would think it would be this: minors should be protected from sexually aggressive adults. Yet, with a nod to "equality" under the law for the gay community, the California Assembly has voted to lessen the potential penalty for 24-year-olds who have sex with children as young as 14. Shockingly – or should I say, revoltingly - this is one of two, similar bills that have just been passed by these legislators.
Security and business: Israel charts potential of ties with 3 more Gulf states
In the wake of Israel's speedily progressing normalization process with the United Arab Emirates, the Intelligence Ministry has analyzed the potential of future ties with three additional states in the region and found fertile ground for robust cooperation, especially in the fields of security and trade.
"The emerging agreement with the UAE may open the door for the advancement of ties with additional Arab Gulf countries, primarily (in order of probability) Oman, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia," according to a new ministry report, a copy of which was obtained by The Times of Israel.
Iran's Khamenei: UAE 'treason' against Palestinians and Islam will not last long Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Tuesday accused the United Arab Emirates of betraying the Muslim world with its agreement to normalize relations with Israel, saying the "treason" was a "stain" on the country. "The UAE betrayed the world of Islam, the Arab nations, the region's countries, and Palestine," said Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. "The treason will not last for long."
Gantz: Israel has changed 'equation of response' to Gaza, will strike if needed Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz said Wednesday that with a forceful response to waves of incendiary balloons launched at Israel by terrorists in the Gaza Strip over recent weeks, the military had altered the balance in exchanges of fire with Palestinian territory. "We changed the equation of response. In Gaza they were surprised and realized that we were taking the ballooin issue seriously, so we attacked as we attacked," Gantz told Army Radio. "We will continue with both defense and offensive activity as needed."
Bad News: Iran, world powers agree to work to preserve nuclear deal Representatives of Iran and the world powers working to save the 2015 Iran nuclear deal on Tuesday agreed in Vienna to do everything possible to preserve the agreement, The Associated Press reported.

Jezebelic: BLM leaders call on the spirits of the dead Is it true that leaders of the BLM movement, including one of the cofounders, are calling on the spirits of the dead? That they claim to receive spiritual power from the deceased? That they talk with these spirits and even give them names? The answer to all these questions is yes. This is now an open secret.
Lest you think that this type of "spirituality" is exceedingly rare, I remind you that in October 2019, the New York Times ran a story titled, "When Did Everybody Become a Witch?" The article claimed that, "We have reached peak witch," noting, "Real witches are roaming among us, and they're seemingly everywhere."
Lying media ups its game as cities burn, Election Day gets closer The now-demolished "autonomous zone" in Seattle, the scene of murders and robberies, and a security guard handing out guns from the trunk of his car, was hailed by The New York Times at the time as a "experiment in life," and NPR wrote about the food co-ops and festive music.
But that is yesterday's manipulated news. A few hours south in Portland, which has endured nightly riots and street fighting, a CNN correspondent mocked claims of Antifa militants in the streets with a serene scene from the city.
See police arrest pregnant woman at home for corona Facebook post The arrest Wednesday by police in Australia of a pregnant woman in her home over a Facebook post promoting an anti-lockdown protest has prompted national outrage.
Video of Zoe Buhler, 28, being handcuffed in front of her children and partner was posted on the woman's Facebook page.
The video, produced by Caldron Pool, has garnered 2.5 million views since being posted to Twitter on Sunday. In its original post, the Caldron Pool account asks, "how did you think it would end?" insinuating that progressives' calls for violence have indeed given rise to the violence now playing out in communities across the country such as Portland, Oregon; Kenosha, Wisconsin; and Chicago.
'I Am 100% ANTIFA All the Way,' Portland Shooting Suspect Said, Warning of 'War' to Come Portland police have not publicly named a suspect in the Saturday night deadly shooting of Trump supporter Aaron Danielson, also known as "Jay Bishop," but sources told The Oregonian that police are investigating 48-year-old Michael Forest Reinoehl, who has identified himself as antifa, has been arrested at previous antifa riots in Portland, and matches some descriptions of the shooter. Reinoehl has also described his support for Black Lives Matter as part of a "war" that will involve "casualties."
Words matter... The transgender movement, for all its caring rhetoric, is not really about eliciting compassion for sexually confused people. It's part of the Marxist Left's campaign to overhaul society and force people to lie.
Should Government Raise Our 3-Year Olds? The Democratic Party and former Vice President Joe Biden have taken an unambiguous stand on this. Caring for 3-year-old children, in their view, is the government's job.
Students for Life: 'Black Preborn Lives Matter'. Amen! A pro-life billboard campaign is drawing attention to the biggest killer in the Black community and is urging President Trump to take executive action against it. The "Black Preborn Lives Matter" billboards, located in Philadelphia, Phoenix, Atlanta, and Milwaukee, were paid for by Students for Life.

The military wings of terror organizations in the Gaza Strip are preparing for a long-term joint campaign against Israel, a Lebanese newspaper reported on Saturday. The pro-Hezbollah Al-Akhbar newspaper reported that sources in the "Joint Operations Room" of the terror organizations said that the rocket barrage toward Israel in the early hours of Friday morning was an example that no action by Israel would go unanswered.
Urgent Warning from Italian Doctor on the Coming Worldwide CV-19 Vaccine While we are AreWeLivingInTheLastDays.com cannot verify the 100% accuracy of this video, we still think it still is important to see this and understand where our world is heading.

Rioters behead trump effigy, macron calls for new world order as we race towards impending prophetical climax Earlier, French president Emmanuel Macron tweeted that "In all crises, an old world disappears, a new one appears. This crisis can be an opportunity. Our goal with the recovery plan: that France, Europe, play their full part in the invention of the world after." Last night, members of ANTIFA, Black Lives Matter and other various Democratic groups took an effigy of President Trump and placed it in a guillotine for beheading. VP candidate Kamala Harris says these riots won't stop even after election day. Does all this seem like 'business as usual' to you? If it does, you're either unsaved or so backslidden you can't see prophecy being fulfilled before your very eyes.
H.R. 6666 a devil of a COVID-19 government surveillance plot A House resolution from Illinois Democrat Rep. Bobby Rush that would put Big Government in charge of tracking citizens' movements as they relate to COVID-19 mitigation efforts - even sending health bureaucrats to "individuals' residences," "as necessary," as the legislation states - has a most apt number: 6666. Mark of the beast. Mark of the beast for a beastly, monstrously unconstitutional bill. After all, what's more devilishly un-American than launching one of the most massive government surveillance programs of private citizens in U.S. history, all under the guise of protecting people from the coronavirus?
"Hail Satan": After Terrorizing Churches, BLM Witchcraft Exposed... There is now proof that there are very dark forces behind Black Lives Matter, and it's not just the blatant Marxism of its founders and leaders. The darkness literally includes summoning dead spirits and allowing them to work through BLM leaders. Sound crazy? BLM bosses admit it.
Clues about the true nature of BLM have been available for quite some time. Last month, Black Lives Matter activists terrorized church attendees in Troy, New York, while chanting "hail Satan." They even shrieked at black families and young mothers trying to get in the building. Just this week in Kenosha, Wisconsin, a church with a "Black Lives Matter" sign on it was torched by BLM activists. In a video that went viral this week, a mob of white BLM activists shout at a couple at a D.C. restaurant for refusing to raise their fists, with one activist asking the confused victims, "Are you a Christian?"
America's mayhem and massive decline in Christianity We shouldn't be surprised at what we're witnessing in major urban areas like Seattle, Portland, and Chicago. The increasing anarchy and corresponding calls to upend the American republican system (and to move toward socialism) could not occur without the massive decline in Christianity in America.
In the last 10 ten years, the percentage of Americans identifying as Christian has dropped from 77% to only 65%
During that same time, the percentage of those unaffiliated with religion skyrocketed from 17% to 26%
Protestant Christian Americans plummeted from over half of Americans (51%) to only 43% by 2019
The percentage of atheists doubled during that period from 2% to 4%
China fires missiles in South China Sea 'in warning to US' after plane entered no-fly zone Beijing has launched two medium-range missiles into the South China Sea in a scathing warning to the United States, as tensions between the superpowers soar, triggering World War 3 fears in the region. The move came on Wednesday morning, one day after China said a US U-2 spy plane entered a no-fly zone without permission. A source close to the Chinese military is understood to have told local media the missile launch was intended to send a warning to the United States.
Taiwanese military releases video of troops 'fending off attack from Chinese mainland' Taiwanese television broadcast a video on Friday of a military exercise simulating the island coming under attack. The film, produced by the defense ministry, showed troops firing anti-aircraft, anti-tank and anti-ship missiles in defense of the island against a mock invasion from across the Taiwan Strait, the waterway that separates it from mainland China.
China says US U-2 spy plane disrupted its military exercises Beijing has accused the US of sending a U-2 spy plane into a no-fly zone to "trespass" on live-fire exercises being conducted by China below. The high-altitude US reconnaissance craft went into airspace Beijing deemed off limits during drills by the People's Liberation Army's Northern Theater Command on Tuesday, Wu Qian, a spokesperson for the Chinese Defense Ministry, said in a statement.
EVIL: Why Satanists are trying to sidestep abortion laws A former satanic leader says the cult needs to be taken seriously, especially for the sake of preborn babies.
Zachary King, who grew up in a Baptist home, began practicing magic at age ten. He joined a satanic coven at age 13, and from his teen years to adulthood he worked his way up to "high wizard" in the coven, actively pushing ritualistic abortions and breaking up churches.
King says it is folly to think child sacrifice is not practiced in Satanism; it is done now by impregnating a woman and then aborting her child.
California continues crushing churches A church in Pasadena is facing criminal threats from its city – something one Christian attorney maintains is unconstitutional.
Liberty Counsel' Mat Staver recently told "Washington Watch with Tony Perkins" that his firm has received a letter from the Pasadena Prosecutors Office to Pastor Ché Ahn of Harvest Rock Church saying the church will face a $1,000 fine for every day it meets and a criminal charge punishable by up to a year in prison.
Could injectable microrobots one day run in your veins? Scientists have created an army of microscopic four-legged robots too small to see with the naked eye that walk when stimulated by a laser and could be injected into the body through hypodermic needles, a study said Wednesday. Microscopic robotics are seen as having an array of potential uses, particularly in medicine, and US researchers said the new robots offer "the potential to explore biological environments".
With Israeli lives and property being deliberately targeted for destruction, and thousands upon thousands of acres of Israel being set on fire by Arabs from Gaza, it appears that Israel has once again finally started to overdose on these clear acts of war. It appears that Israel is preparing to respond in a big way.
In his proposal, Hauser suggests delaying the deadline to pass the budget by 100 days, during which time Israel's government would agree on a budget and a plan for stabilizing the economy. No appointments would be made during those 100 days, while a new committee would examine how senior officials are appointed. Instead, the focus would instead be on managing the coronavirus outbreak, preparing for flu season, and security concerns on the Gaza and northern borders.
Holy Land 'on brink of war' as doomsday preacher says Bible prophecy 'happening' As tensions between Israel and Palestine heat up once again, a doomsday preacher is predicting this could be the ultimate war for the "Holy Land" that will wipe Hamas out for good. This week Israeli warplanes bombed the Gaza strip in retaliation for balloon and rocket attacks from Palestinian forces, despite Egyptian security officials trying to defuse tensions. Israeli defence minister Benny Gantz had said Hamas is "playing with fire" which will be "turned back on them".
Orwell's nightmare? Facial recognition for animals promises a farmyard revolution There are many challenges to applying facial recognition technology to animals: Pigs don't have distinguishing features and cows often want to lick the cameras. But there is an advantage: Farmyard inhabitants tend not to complain about infringement on their civil liberties. Having mastered facial recognition for humans to an alarmingly precise degree, even picking out wanted criminals from huge crowds, Chinese tech whizzes are turning their attention to furrier faces.
At Oklahoma State University, students' steps are tracked to stop the coronavirus Newfound freedom is part of the allure of going off to college, but COVID-19 changes things.

DNC Committee Omits 'Under God' From The Pledge Of Allegiance
A Democratic National Convention moderator omitted sacred words from the Pledge of Allegiance during a panel discussion Tuesday: "under God." During the Muslim Delegates Assembly, the video of the livestreamed event shows A.J. Durani led the pledge but left out an important part, saying, "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." Durani was elected to be a super delegate for the 2016-2020 term of the Democratic National Committee.
The left-wing war on America's suburbs Sadly, there are those who think Washington should get involved in local zoning decisions, and that local demographics is the business of Washington. But it speaks all we need to know about the left-wing grab for power – and proves that their vision for America takes precedence over our freedoms.
The Trump administration recently rescinded the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) rule, adopted in the early months of the Obama administration. The rule was an add-on to the 1968 Fair Housing Act. The act was about preventing discrimination in the sale, rental or financing of housing.
'Radical' material exposed.. A consortium of Christian organizations is strongly urging parents to view a documentary today that reveals what children are learning in public school sex education programs.

School District Making Parents Sign Waiver Agreeing Not To Monitor Virtual Instruction A school district in Tennessee is asking parents to sign a form agreeing not to monitor their children's virtual classrooms over concerns that "non-student observers" could overhear confidential information.
The form, a copy of which was sent to the Tennessee Star, reads: "RCS strives to present these opportunities in a secure format that protects student privacy to the greatest extent possible, however, because these meetings will occur virtually RCS is limited in its ability to fully control certain factors such as non-student observers that may be present in the home of a student participating in the virtual meeting."
We Just Crossed the Line Debt Hawks Warned Us About for Decades Economists and deficit hawks have warned for decades that the United States was borrowing too much money. The federal debt was ballooning so fast, they said, that economic ruin was inevitable: Interest rates would skyrocket, taxes would rise and inflation would probably run wild.
The death spiral could be triggered once the debt surpassed the size of the U.S. economy - a turning point that was probably still years in the future. It actually happened much sooner: sometime before the end of June.
