A Spirit Of Violence Rises In America Following The Unveiling Of The ‘Harbinger Of Baal’ In New York

baal-arch-photo-by-jeanie-laboyIs it just a coincidence that we have seen violence erupt all over America since the unveiling of the arch that served as a gateway to the Temple of Baal in New York City on September 19th? First there were the terror attacks in New York, New Jersey and Minnesota, then there were the unprecedented riots in Charlotte, and over the weekend there was a horrific mass shooting near Seattle. All of these events took place within a week after the Arch of Triumph was put up in New York. Baal was an ancient deity that was often associated with violence and bloodshed, and those that erected this arch have no idea what they are messing with.

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn was standing in the crowd when “the harbinger of Baal” was unveiled last Monday afternoon, and he posted video of the unveiling on YouTube

YouTube encourages ‘heroes’ to censor video giant into safe space

On the heels of its recent announcement that potentially offensive content won’t be eligible for monetization, the video sharing giant YouTube is now encouraging users to “mass flag” content that isn’t politically correct.

The “Heroes” initiative incentivizes YouTubers to report other users for making inappropriate comments and remarks in videos by offering a number of perks for people working as PC snitches for the company.

“YouTube Heroes will have access to a dedicated YouTube Heroes community site that is separate from the main YouTube site, where participants can learn from one another,” the company told Digital Trends. “Through the program, participants will be able to earn points and unlock rewards to help them reach the next level.”

The company announced the new program, an extension of a trusted flagger program it set up in 2012, in a new video.

Taking one for the team? Report shows Trump empire losing money

GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump’s polarizing bid for the White House is reportedly losing customers for his brand.

That’s according to a new report out from Reuters which reveals that Trump’s prestigious hotels and golf courses have lost about 14 percent market share since last year.

According to the report, Trump-owned hotels took a hit of a 54 percent decrease in bookings last year.

One interesting point the article makes is that the key demographic Trump’s businesses target is different from the majority of voters the Trump campaign is reaching.

“The Trump brand used to be one-dimensionally focused on success. It was simple and relevant to a large audience,” said Allen Adamson, founder of consulting company BrandSimple, told Reuters. “Now it’s more complex and polarizing and relevant to a smaller market segment.”

UK parliament reveals how ‘erroneous assumptions’ informed Clinton diplomacy

Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, who is leaning heavily on her supposed foreign policy expertise in the 2016 race, continues to assert that the U.S.’s efforts to destabilize Libya represent “smart power at its best.” But it looks like leaders in the UK are more inclined to agree with President Barack Obama’s “**** show” assessment.

“I think President Obama made the right decision at the time. And the Libyan people had a free election the first time since 1951. And you know what, they voted for moderates, they voted with the hope of democracy. Because of the Arab Spring, because of a lot of other things, there was turmoil to be followed,” Clinton said during a primary debate last year.

What Clinton didn’t mention is how her State Department aggressively pushed Obama to back the Libyan regime change or how it’s a decision that Obama has come to publically say he regrets.

Former Mexican diplomat: Trump’s wall idea really isn’t that crazy

A former Mexican foreign secretary says that GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s plans to deport millions of illegal immigrants and force Mexicans to pay for a wall along the southern are “perfectly feasible.”

Jorge Castañeda, Mexico’s secretary of foreign affairs from 2000 to 2003, told an audience gathered at the Hudson Institute in Washington that there are several ways in which Trump could make good on his immigration-related promises.

President Barack Obama, despite his amnesty rhetoric, has deported 2 million illegal immigrants during his time in the White House, Castañeda noted, adding that Trump should have no trouble doubling that number.

“He certainly could deport twice as many as Obama, why not, why not? Everybody knows where they it’s very easy to find them. It’s expensive, but it’s not outrageously expensive and you could pressure a bunch of people including my country into paying for part of it and taking them back,” he said.

Why you should always carry a gun

People often ask why I’m such a staunch advocate for gun rights, why I believe so strongly in the 2nd Amendment, and why I close my preparedness articles with the words, “store ammo and guns.” There are many answers, but one need only look at the video below from Charlotte, North Carolina for an emphatic, dramatic and traumatic one.

The riots in Charlotte show what a societal breakdown looks like… especially in urban centers. Looting, gangs, large mobs and traffic jams put innocent people in dangerous situations. Without warning, individuals and families can easily and all-to-quickly find themselves surrounded and in a dangerous spot. A gun is an equalizer.

So I urge you, dear reader, to buy a gun, get trained in its use, and practice, practice, practice. Have a spare magazine handy for situations like this one. Don’t be a helpless victim.

Separating the myths and facts of long-term care

Long-term care is a great American paradox. On the one hand, most people don’t want to talk about it. A recent survey found that 25 percent of adults would rather go to the dentist than discuss LTC. Fewer than 30 percent of adults have had a conversation about long-term care planning. Yet, paying for LTC and the financial cost of long-term care are the greatest financial concerns of Americans. Perhaps that’s because they don’t talk about LTC, so they misunderstand it.

Few topics generate more confusion and misinterpretation. The discussions that do occur about LTC tend to be filled with misleading statistics and information.

The U.S. government says that 70 percent of those now age 65 or older will need long-term care in their lifetimes. That number is used to make the case that everyone should own long-term care insurance (LTCI). But a closer look at the data indicates that only 19 percent of men and 31 percent of women should purchase LTCI, according to a recent study from the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College.
