ISIS Leader: 'See You in New York'
The mystery surrounding two white flags that appeared on top of the Brooklyn Bridge today deepened as the New York City Police Department admitted they don't know who committed the security breach or how they accomplished it.
White flags, which are symbols of surrender, flew from poles on the stone supports atop the famed bridge that connects Brooklyn and Manhattan over the East River.
"I'm not particularly happy about the event," said NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton.
Police officials said this afternoon that they have surveillance video of a group of four or five individuals walking onto the bridge shortly after 3 a.m.
"Those people will be of particular interest in this investigation," said NYPD Deputy Commissioner John Miller, who also oversees intelligence and counter terrorism.

Prostitution in Canada is legal as there are no laws prohibiting the exchange of sex for money or other consideration. On the 20th December 2013, the Supreme Court of Canada found the laws prohibiting brothels, public communication for the purpose of prostitution, and living on the profits of prostitution to be unconstitutional. The ruling gave the Canadian parliament 12 months to rewrite the prostitution laws with a stay of effect so that the current laws remain in force. Amending legislation was introduced in June 2014.

The Canadian government introduced Bill C-36, a piece of legislation that, if passed, would make it illegal to buy sex in Canada.
Under the proposed bill, buying sex would be a criminal offense, as would the selling of sex in public areas where minors could “reasonably be expected to be present.” The advertising of sexual services, either online or in print, would be punishable by up to five years in prison. The bill also provides $20 million in government funding for “exit” services for sex workers who wish to leave the profession.
Passage of the bill, says Justice Minister Peter MacKay, would mark the first time that buying sex has been criminalized in Canada, where the commercial exchange of sex between consenting adults is currently legal. It’s being touted by MacKay and other Conservatives as Canada’s answer to the “Nordic model,” a term used to describe the prostitution laws in Scandinavian countries that target johns rather than sex workers themselves.

According to the government bill tracking site the status of Bill C-36 is "In committee (House), as of June 19, 2014."
The reasoning behind this, says MacKay, is to curb prostitution by targeting the pimps and “perverts” who buy or directly profit from the selling of sex. He sees the bill is an attempt to “protect” sex workers, the majority of which, he says, are not selling sex of their own volition.
"The bill recognizes that the vast majority of those who sell sexual services do not do so by choice. We view the vast majority of those involved in selling sexual services as victims," MacKay said in a press conference after the bill was introduced.
Needless to say, sex workers and their advocates are not happy with C-36, nor are they pleased with the Canadian government’s suggestion that women who sell sex are “victims.” Over the past 24 hours, many have taken to Twitter to protest against the bill’s vague and abstruse language, which they argue further endangers the sex workers the bill ostensibly aims to protect.

Some people are illiterate or simple-minded. They cannot understand world events. Some are intellectually unable to comprehend realities beyond the level of an animal. They can eat, sleep, work, move, react naturally to physical stimuli and converse reasonably about any of those things but they cannot function very well (if at all) beyond those limits. Trying to engage them in a conversation about world events is much like trying to talk to your dog or cat; there is attention and some response to your voice and body language, but comprehension and reason are absent regarding the world stage.
Some are willfully ignorant and choose not to know. They understand that knowledge will make them responsible to react.They bask, unmoved and unconcerned about the dangers surrounding them, like idiots in the bliss of ignorance.
In the area of debate about today's world events, there are two sides in stark opposition; morality and immorality. To the moral, we can identify the two sides as right or wrong. To the immoral there there is only immorality which they attempt to cloak in right sounding language to sway the simpleminded, the intellectually incapable and the willfully ignorant. When the majority fit into the category of the immoral, simple, mentally incapable or purposefully ignorant, that constitutes the critical mass necessary to destroy anything and everything good in a society.
All evidence is overwhelming that Obama is immoral. I will not state any of that evidence here because everyone who is moral knows that except for the simple, mentally incapable and purposefully ignorant. Obviously, the immoral know their own and rejoice that one of their own is in the White House.
Spirit-led Christians can identify the two sides as good and evil. All evidence points to the fact that Obama is evil. That is undeniable to any moral person.
Some have asked me how, as a Christian, I can speak against the President of the United States? I am not speaking against the office of the President of the United States. I am speaking against evil and against the violations of the oath of office. Holding any office, high or low, is not a license for the elected office holder to violate the oath of that office without response or consequence.
"If (an evil man)...come...receive (support) him not...(or you will be) a partaker of (participant in and promoter of) his evil deeds. 2 John 1:11, KJV, Parenthesis mine.
"...follow not...evil..." 3 John 11
"I know you...canst (do) not bear (tolerate) them which are evil...." Revelation 2:2,
"...the Lord is against them that do evil." 1 Peter 3:16
If we speak well of evil, we align ourselves with Satan who does the same. If we do not receive, partake of, follow, tolerate or promote (by our support or silence) evil, but stand against those who do evil, then we align ourselves with God.
Certainly, the Bible instructs us not to speak evil of dignified (honorable) people (2 Peter 2:10-12). There is no dignity or honor in Obama.

I think I shall never forget a YouTube video I watched about ten years ago in which a young man in his twenties discussed a painful ear infection he was battling. To my amazement he went on to lament the decision he made to take antibiotics; a decision made for him by the pain no doubt.
"I believe in evolution and by taking the medicine I am hindering the evolutionary process," he said to the camera.
Upon further investigation I discovered his channel was dedicated to promoting modern atheism and deep time fish-to-men evolution. "Finally," I thought, "an honest atheist."
Any internal infection can kill you. A dental abscess has toxins that can poison your system. Ear infections are a particularly nasty infliction. Yet the evolutionist will ignore the demands of their theory and implement the aggressive use of force against the attempts of nature to kill us at nearly every turn.
And yet I find it equally disturbing whenever we encounter the evolutionist argument against biblical creationism in the form of their favorite red herring: "If you don't believe in evolution then don't take antibiotics or vaccines because, after all, bacteria and viruses evolve (adapt to our attempts to kill them) and medical science must always stay ahead of those evolutionary mutations in order to produce effective vaccines and antibiotics."
Therein lies the single greatest piece of evidence the deep time community has that fish became men, that is, that viruses become viruses and bacteria become bacteria. Therefore we Christians mustn't ever use antibiotics or vaccines because we refuse to believe that fish became men based solely on the fact that bacteria become bacteria and viruses become viruses.
Some of you might be thinking right now that I am totally making this up but no, I am not. We encounter this argument on a daily basis. In fact, when Ray Comfort took his cameras onto a university campus he encountered this very same problem from the professors and students themselves.
The Bible offers the most reasonable explanation for the need to use antibiotics and vaccines, etc. Because of the fall of humanity the earth is against us.
Genesis 3:17 ¶And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;Humanity was thrust into the position of requiring the aggressive use of force to keep sickness away because of this event which happened as the result of man's decision to disobey God. That is the creationist view of the world which lines up perfectly with the evidence and need for such aggressive items as antibiotics (which were accidentally discovered) and vaccines (developed by scientists with God-given intellect).
18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return
I am not sure what happened to the atheist in the video I mentioned at first. I hope he recovered from his painful infection and I hope he rejected the Darwinian demand that the bacteria kill him and take over the earth. Above all I hope the evolutionists embrace the knowledge of the truth that just because bacteria change into bacteria and viruses change into viruses that does not mean the evolutionist was once a fish.
Fox News Reporter Stays Put In Spite Of Threats From Obama - Confirms Zullo Accusations about Media Threats!
Jennifer Griffin (bio) currently serves as a national security correspondent for FOX News Channel (FNC). She joined FNC in October 1999 as a Jerusalem-based correspondent.
Most recently, Griffin reported on the deadly shooting at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C. and the 2013 National Security Administration (NSA) leaks involving the former NSA government contractor Edward Snowden and the NSA’s wide-ranging surveillance activities. Additionally, she has covered the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 and the killing of Osama bin Laden in 2011. She has secured major interviews with former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta in Vietnam in 2012 and General David Petraeus in Kabul, Afghanistan in 2010. Griffin also traveled with former Defense Secretary Robert Gates as a member of a VIP press pool in 2011.
Griffin remains at Fox in spite of attempts from the Obama administration against her career if she persisted in reporting the truth about the Benghazi attack against the US consulate in Libya in which four Americans were killed including the American ambassador.
The Last Great Stand reported Jan 24 that Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren charged that the Obama administration tried to press her to shut down a colleague’s reporting on the jihadist attack in Benghazi, Libya, that cost the lives of a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans.
Van Susteren asserted recently on her blog that the administration made an extensive effort to conceal what happened in Benghazi. She cited U.S. officials’ refusal to include the Fox News Channel in several Benghazi briefings along with a warning that her colleague’s career would be ruined if she persisted in her reporting on the attack.As of today's date Griffin remains, several months later, firmly entrenched within the ranks of Fox News.
The Fox News host recalled a “disturbing phone call from a good friend in the Obama administration” shortly after the Sept. 11, 2012, attack, which the administration initially blamed on a protest of an anti-Islam video.
On an equally dangerous footing, it appears, are the folks in media who dare to question the authenticity of the birth documents proffered by the Obama administration which have been proven to be fraudulently manufactured; a charge leveled, investigated, and proven true by the investigation team put together by the Sheriff's Office of Maricopa County Arizona.
The office, headed by Sheriff Joe Arpaio, appointed investigator Mike Zullo to properly examine the allegations that the birth certificate posted to the White House website was a fraud. Their findings concluded that it is, indeed, not authentic. Below is footage from a conference in which Zullo explains that the birth certificate offered by Obama is a "perfect crime scene" and that media "shut down" their own investigations because their personal careers were "threatened."
Below are updates from media personality Carl Gallups of Freedom Friday and PPSIMMONS fame.
Carl Gallups Answers! "Anything NEW on Zullo?" - July 18/14
Caller to Gallups: "Time for YOU to reveal Zullo info YOURSELF!" Gallups Responds!
Jan Markell is host of "Understanding The Times", a national talk radio show heard on various Christian stations across the USA, including KPSZ and KKMS. Markell is also the founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries in Maple Grove, Minnesota. She has been in Israel-related ministry since 1975. Markell has authored eight books and written over 300 articles for publication that have appeared in many periodicals around the world. Markell’s newsletter was first published in 1993.
Markell was interviewed on Freedom Friday with Carl Gallups on the similarities between Hitler's Germany and Obama's America. You can listen to the interview below.
Markell is the author of "Trapped in Hitler's Hell", a first-person account of a young German Jewish girl's trials, tragedies, and triumphs in the years before, during and after World War II -- a wonderful book on so many levels, appealing to every aspect of soul and spirit.
"It's a cliff-hanging adventure story to rival the finest I've ever read. I found it nearly impossible to put down. Most importantly, it's a story of complete faith in the Lord Jesus Christ -- in the childlike trust He wants us all to have as we labor through earthly lives that are plagued by loss. It is, in fact, a story that shows us precisely what it means to live for the Lord -- and to take Him at His word when He promises, 'I will never leave you nor forsake you.'
"My only criticism is that, at just over 200 pages, Trapped in Hitler's Hell is too short. The author has done a magnificent job of giving readers just enough detail to feed our imaginations, without bogging us down. But as quickly as I raced through its pages, desperate to find out what happened to this daughter and her mother, I was very sad to turn the last page. I did not want this girl's story to end.
"My thanks to Anita Dittman and her talented biographer, Jan Markell, for an unforgettable, faith-building book! It will put everyone's trials in perspective." --Kitty Foth-Regner
"This is a brilliantly done film and an equally gripping personal account of confronting and surviving one of the greatest evils that history has recorded. The coordination between the monologue and the film clips was a touch of cinematic expertise seldom seen. There were no obvious special effects to dehumanize the work. The moving recollections were enough to carry the drama right to the heart of the viewer—me! I trust this dual production of film and book will be like an emotional hypodermic needle for America to awaken to the fact that the present leadership has placed the Western public on the cusp of the whole thing being repeated!!" —Merv Watson, Israel
