6:19 PM - More Evidence US is Supporting ISIS
BAGHDAD -- It's all a ruse, some Iraqis say, nothing more than a carefully thought-out plan to destabilize their bloodied country even more. Twelve years after the 2003 invasion of Iraq, and three years after U.S. forces pulled out, the U.S. role in fighting the Islamic State group here is met with great distrust.
Conspiracy theories abound, with many Iraqis insisting that the United States is actually funding and supporting the Sunni extremist group in order rip apart what's left of the country and strengthen Iraqi reliance on the West.
In late December, the popular Iraqi television show, Afaq, funded by former prime minister turned vice president Nouri al-Maliki, aired a news segment claiming that the United States was arming ISIS militants. "Video shows international alliance airplanes dropping military aid to the terrorism groups of Daesh and landing in an area controlled by ISIS," the television presenter said.
Naeem al-Ubody, spokesman for the notorious Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq, one of the Iran-supported militias fighting ISIS in Tikrit, doesn't pause for a moment when asked if he believes that the United States is supporting ISIS. "We have evidence and documents that have been found by our fighters on the frontlines proving that the United States is dropping aid and ammunition to ISIS," he said. His group is infamous for its attacks on American and Iraqi soldiers during the Iraq War.
I've never been more frustrated in my career. After 13 years of the mind-numbing low intensity conflict in Afghanistan, I've never seen the knife more dull. All the hard lessons learned in Vietnam, and fixed during the first Gulf War, have been unlearned again. The level of centralized execution, bureaucracy, and politics is staggering. I basically do not have any decision making authority in my cockpit. It sucks. In most cases, unless a general officer can look at a video picture from a UAV, over a satellite link, I cannot get authority to engage. I've spent many hours, staring through a targeting pod screen in my own cockpit, watching ISIS sh**heads perpetrate their acts until my eyes bleed, without being able to do anything about it. The institutional fear of making a mistake, that has crept into the central mindset of the military leadership, is endemic. We have not taken the fight to these guys. We haven't targeted their centers of gravity in Raqqa. All the roads between Syria and Iraq are still intact with trucks flowing freely. The other night I watched a couple hundred small tanker trucks lined up at an oilfield in ISIS-held northeast Syria, presumably filling up with with oil traded on the black market, go unfettered. It's not uncommon to wait several hours overhead a suspected target for someone to make a decision to engage or not. It feels like we are simply using the constructs built up in Afghanistan, which was a very limited fight, in the same way here against ISIS, which is a much more sophisticated and numerically greater foe. It's embarrassing.
6:17 PM - Huge Flood of Criminals Coming into US
Huge Surge of Unscreened Muslims Flooding U.S.
Muslim immigration from dangerous nations is dramatically higher in recent years, and government assurances that immigrants are being properly screened is "a farce," according to accomplished author and columnist Paul Sperry.
"It's a huge surge under Obama. In the last three years, he's averaged 100,000 new immigrants from Muslim nations a year. That is very alarming. It's more than we're importing both from Central America and Mexico combined. This is a big shift in immigration flows," said Sperry, who is the author of "Infiltration: How Muslim Spies and Subversives Have Penetrated Washington" and co-author of "Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America."
"It's really insane what we're doing. No one's really talking about it, but this mass immigration from Muslim countries poses a serious national security threat," said Sperry, who is also a Hoover Institution media fellow and former Washington bureau chief of WND. Sperry frequently writes for the New York Post and Investor's Business Daily.

8:13 PM - The Solid Rock
Words by Edward Mote (1797-1874)
Music by William Bradbury (1816-1868)
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly trust in Jesus’ name.
On Christ the solid rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;
All other ground is sinking sand.
When darkness seems to hide His face,
I rest on His unchanging grace.
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.
His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood.
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.
When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh may I then in Him be found.
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.

Passion For Truth Pastor Jim Staley Says He Didn't Tell Church He Was Arrested for Fraud Because He Didn't Realize He Was
Jim Staley, 39, pastor of Passion For Truth Ministries in St. Louis, Missouri, is now facing up to 30 years in prison and/or up to $1 million in fines for allegedly defrauding investors, according to a June 18 federal grand jury indictment. He did not tell his congregation, however, until more than a week later because he claims he didn't realize he was arrested.
"James Staley was indicted for his alleged scheme to defraud investors by making false promises of high rates of return and minimal risk. The indictment states that Staley defrauded 11 investors/lenders by causing them to invest over $3.4 million, giving him commissions totaling over $570,000," announced the release.

The Temple Institute has announced the completion of an altar of burnt sacrifice intended for the Third Temple (Breaking Israel News, Mar. 9, 2015). Founded in 1986, the Temple Institute’s objective is “to see Israel rebuild the Holy Temple on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem.” The founder of the Institute, Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, was a member of the paratrooper unit that liberated the Temple Mount in 1967 at the end of the Six Day War. At much expense (tens of millions of dollars have been donated) and based on extensive research, they have fashioned priestly garments, the high priest’s golden crown costing $30,000, the high priest’s breastplate with its 12 precious stones inscribed with the names of the tribes of Israel, a copper laver, an incense altar, silver trumpets, gold- and silver-plated shofars, harps, and many other things.
BOB DYLAN SAYS HE WAS CHANGED FOREVER BY BILLY GRAHAM
In an interview with AARP magazine, 60s rock icon Bob Dylan praised Billy Graham. He said, “Billy Graham was the greatest preacher and evangelist of my time--that guy could save souls and did. I went to two or three of his rallies in the ’50s or ’60s. This guy was like rock ’n’ roll personified--volatile, explosive. He had the hair, the tone, the elocution--when he spoke, he brought the storm down. Clouds parted. Souls got saved, sometimes 30- or 40,000 of them. If you ever went to a Billy Graham rally back then, you were changed forever. There’s never been a preacher like him. He could fill football stadiums before anybody. ... Long before Mick Jagger sang his first note or Bruce strapped on his first guitar--that’s some of the part of rock ’n’ roll that I retained. I had to. I saw Billy Graham in the flesh and heard him loud and clear” (“Looking Deeper into Dylan,” AARP the magazine, Feb.-Mar. 2015). This is a strange statement. Dylan was changed forever in the 1950s and 1960s by Graham’s preaching?
THE GAITHER’S NEW BOOGIE WOOGIE ALBUM
Bill Gaither’s new album Happy Rhythm, is described as “bounce, croon, boogie woogie, and worship” (www.hallels.com, Mar. 13, 2015). Boogie woogie and worship are incompatible. One celebrates the flesh, the other the Spirit. One is of the world, the other of heaven. One is of the devil, the other of God. What confusion! Few men have done more to break down the walls between the “church” and the world than Bill Gaither. As far back as 1980, a firsthand report of the Gaither’s appearance at the Southern Baptist Convention in St. Louis said, “The Bill Gaither Trio entertained 15,000 Southern Baptists on Sunday evening with a musical program worldly enough to make any true believer weep” (Robert S. Reynolds, Foundation, Volume VI, Issue 1, 1985, p. 9).

10:08 AM - Pastors Have Enslaved America
By Chuck Baldwin
Having to write this column is so very frustrating. I think I'm beginning to know how the Old Testament prophets of Israel felt. And how they basically felt was ALL ALONE. Their messages were not popular, to say the least. Many of them faced, not only the ire and condemnation of the citizens of their country, but also the abuse and persecution of the established powers. And believe me, if some of the "good Christian" people who have written me the past three or four weeks had the legal power to do it, Chuck Baldwin would have already faced the same fate of the prophets of old. NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.
For one thing, when a man such as Jeremiah, Isaiah, Elijah, or Micaiah delivered a message, they were drowned out by the hundreds and thousands of the king's prophets. In one way or another, these men were on the king's dole. They received the king's "faith-based initiative" monies. They were invited to the king's banquets. They received the king's tax exemptions. They were afforded the king's perks and privileges.
Therefore, it was not surprising that when a Jeremiah or Micaiah brought a message of judgment upon the land, he was drowned out in a cacophony of public rebuke by the king's prophets. God's prophets almost always stood ALONE.
5:53 PM - Alone But Not Forgotten
Lonely people aren’t necessarily all by themselves when not in the company of others. Sometimes they are shut off by themselves, and sometimes they may be in a surrounding with hundreds of others in the same location. There’s nothing like being in a restaurant, for example, watching others socialize, not being a part of it, and feeling a deep-seated loneliness. I’m familiar with that, as I’m sure others are too.
There are times when being alone is desired, such as when Jesus would go off by Himself to be alone. What did He do during that time though? I believe He spent most of His time, if not all of it, in prayer talking to the Father. We all need to have those times of just being alone with God. When you think about it though, we’re really not alone. We’re with God.

7:13 PM - Rapture References
Recently I was challenged to make a list of all the passages in the Bible that hint of a pre-trib rapture. As you may know I believe Paul was the first person on Earth to present a clear pre-trib teaching, about 20 years after the cross. Before that time it was unknown because Jesus didn't teach it to His other disciples during their time together. And since the Olivet Discourse is directed at Israel, there's no mention of it there either, even though the end times is in view. Israel will not participate in the rapture.
Now I'll be the first to admit that doing this requires that you already have a working knowledge of the pre-trib position, because without it you wouldn't recognize some of these references as being pertinent to the subject. But ever since Paul revealed the rapture, scholars have been seeing hints of it here and there, even in the Old Testament.

This is one of the main reasons why the FDA's track record for keeping you safely out of harm's way has failed so miserably over the years, as user fees allow the drug industry to have major leverage over the FDA, and that control is continuing to increase year after year.
