Satanic Temple sees Arkansas as possible monument location
The Satanic Temple says Arkansas’ approval of a Ten Commandments display gives the group a right to erect the statue.
The group says Arkansas is an alternative site for the 8 ½-foot-tall Baphomet statue, depicting Satan as a goat-headed figure. Arkansas legislators have passed a bill similar to one establishing Oklahoma’s Ten Commandments monument.

ISIS will Be Defeated with Better Ideas…
CNN reported Tuesday that President Barack Obama emerged from a meeting with top brass at the Pentagon to address his administration’s evolving strategy in combating the spread of ISIS in Iraq and Syria. He pledged to “counter ISIL’s hateful propaganda, especially online.”
“Ultimately,” Obama said, “in order for us to defeat terrorist groups like ISIL and al-Qaida is gonna also require us to discredit their ideology, the twisted thinking that draws vulnerable people into their ranks. As I’ve said before, and I know our military leaders agree, this broader challenge of countering violent extremism. Ideologies are not defeated with guns; they are defeated by better ideas. A more attractive and more compelling vision.”
“So the United States will continue to do our part by working with partners to counter ISIL’s hateful propaganda, especially online,” he continued. “We’ll constantly reaffirm with words and deeds that we will never be at war with Islam, we’re fighting terrorists who distort Islam and whose victims are mostly Muslims.”
***Sadly, our leader is Spiritually clueless and blinded. Islam has a demonic spirit at it’s heart and will not respond to reason or alternative “ideas”. We cannot engage in Supernatural Warfare with political and natural weapons. That dog won’t hunt! We must be praying that the Lord will give him Godly, spiritual eyes to see before it is too late!
Wars and Rumors of Wars: Never turn your back on the Bear
Russia is boasting a major advance in electronic warfare technology enabling Vladimir Putin’s armed forces to zap foreign military satellites, and “switch off” enemy weapons.
The new system will muzzle the guidance systems of Western cruise missiles and other high-precision arms, it is claimed.
Its Russian makers say it is a “fundamentally new electronic warfare system” which can be mounted on ground-based as well as air- and sea-borne carriers.
Russia’s Radio-Electronic Technologies Group (KRET) deputy chief Yuri Mayevsky said: “The system will target the enemy’s deck-based, tactical, long-range and strategic aircraft, electronic means and suppress foreign military satellites’ radio-electronic equipment.”

Russian Bombers Spotted off of Swedish Coast on 4th of July
Swedish fighter jets were sent on Saturday morning to monitor the activity of two Russian bombers to the east of Gotland.
“Two Jas Gripen planes followed the planes and monitored them,” said Marie Tisäter, duty officer at the Swedish Armed Forces. “They did not violate Swedish airspace.”
The past year has been one of heightened tensions between Sweden and its eastern neighbour, riddled with spy allegations, submarine hunts and claims Russia rehearsed a military invasion of Gotland, strategically located in the middle of the Baltic Sea, back in March.
Increased Russian military activity has caused jitters in Sweden, prompting Defence Minister Peter Hultqvist to announce that Sweden would be stepping up its military power, including stationing 230 Swedish troops on Gotland from 2018 in a bid that would effectively make the island Sweden’s first line of defence to the east.
USAF jets scrambled TWICE as nuclear-capable Russian bombers go on practice run off Alaska… then fly within 50 miles of Californian coast on 4th of July
- Air defense systems triggered twice by Tu-95 Bear H aircraft
- Incursions began on Monday at around 4.30pm Pacific time
- F-22 jets were scrambled near the far western Aleutian Islands
- Two of the four aircraft turned back, but the other two carried on
- Then, 50 miles off California, two U.S. F-15 jets were deployed
The North American Aerospace Defense Command confirmed U.S. air defense systems were triggered twice by nuclear-capable Tu-95 Bear H aircraft last week.
A spokesman said incursions began on Monday at around 4.30pm Pacific time when radar detected four bombers approaching the U.S. air defense zone near the far western Aleutian Islands.
Two U.S. Air Force F-22 jets were scrambled and intercepted the turbo-prop powered bombers over the Aleutians.
Two of the Bears, believed to be based at the Russian strategic base near Anadyr, Russia, turned around and headed west toward the Russian Far East
The remaining two bombers then flew south-east. At around 9.30pm they entered the U.S. northern air defense zone off the coast of Northern California.
The USAF air defense systems were trigged for a second time and two U.S. F-15 jets were deployed. They intercepted the bombers before they turned around and headed west.
Norad spokesman Navy Captain Jeff Davis told the Washington Free Beacon: ‘The last time we saw anything similar was two years ago on the Fourth of July.’
A defense official said the four bombers also were supported by two IL-78 aerial refueling tankers that were used for mid-air refueling during the operation this week.
A U.S. Air Force F-22 Raptor aircraft had to intercept two Tu-95 Bear H aircraft last weekThe Tu-95 is a long-range strike aircraft capable of carrying nuclear cruise missiles. It has a range of around 9,400 miles without refueling.
Davis said the aircraft ‘acted professionally’ and the bombers appeared to be conducting a training mission. ‘They typically do long range aviation training in the summer and it is not unusual for them to be more active during this time,’ he said. ‘We assess this was part of training. And they did not enter territorial airspace.’
The bomber incursion is the latest Russian nuclear saber-rattling amid stepped up tensions over Moscow’s military annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea.
The Tu-95 Bear is the fastest propeller-driven airplane ever built. It was originally designed to carry two nuclear bombs to targets in the continental U.S.
Last month, in a maneuver straight out of the Cold War, a Russian fighter jet purposely flew 100-feet in front of the nose of an American spy plane in April, US officials confirmed on Monday.
The fly-by over the Sea of Okhotsk between Russia and Japan was described by one US official as ‘straight out of a movie’.
The same U.S. official said the Russian jet put the lives of the US Air Force RC-135U in danger and called it ‘one of the most dangerous close passes in decades.’

Iran Gets the Gold
Iran took possession of a 13-ton hoard of gold — worth nearly $500 million — held up by sanctions after working out a deal on the sidelines of nuclear talks in Vienna, the country’s central bank chief told Iranian media.
“A sum of 13 tons of gold that had been purchased before and was deposited in South Africa in the past two years and could not be transferred to Iran due to the sanctions … was delivered to the Central Bank of Iran’s treasury last night,” Valiollah Seif, who heads the Central Bank of Iran, said Wednesday, according to the Iranian state-owned Fars News.
Seif said the transfer is evidence the talks are having some success. Fars News reported the retrieval of the gold was the result of months of hard work. That much gold is worth about $485 million based on current price per ounce.

Greek Bank Closures May Deplete Supermarket Shelves
By Martinne Geller and Lefteris Karagiannopoulos
LONDON/ATHENS (Reuters) – A halt to international payments from Greek bank accounts is hurting Greek businesses and their foreign partners and threatening supplies of vital goods like food and clothing into the debt-crippled country.
With banks closed, people limited to withdrawing 60 euros ($66.62) per day and Greece’s future in the euro possibly hinging on a referendum on Sunday, Greek shoppers have been stocking up on essentials like sugar, flour, pasta, rice, beans, canned and paper goods.
Shelves remain full for now as retailers have inventories in storage. But capital controls put in place after Greece defaulted on a loan to international creditors have essentially frozen companies’ cash flows and credit.
This has severely hampered production and shipping, meaning that goods are in finite supply. With this week’s rush to supermarkets, shortages could be around the corner although budget limits are providing some cushion.
“At this stage there is no problem of shortages. There is sufficient stock in our warehouses and we renew it frequently,” said Melina Varoutsikou, spokeswoman for Sklavenitis, one of Greece’s largest supermarket chains.
“However, nobody knows how much these can last. It all depends on which product we are talking about.”
With no international bank transfers, imports and exports have been clobbered, according to SEV-Hellenic Federation of Enterprises, meaning there are fewer raw materials, even for local production, and less petrol available for deliveries.
Meanwhile, sellers of perishable items like fresh fruit and vegetables stand to realize losses as shipments are stalled.
“The food and beverage industry suffers heavily,” said George Xirogiannis, director of industrial and sectoral policies for SEV, a trade group involved in lobbying the government to reconsider its position on cross-border transactions.
“Cash flow problems are spread throughout the economy, regardless of the size of the enterprise.” “Payment transactions have been severely affected,” said an official from an international consumer goods company who spoke on condition of anonymity.
“Unnecessary items saw a dramatic decline already. With what’s happening now we expect the decline to be even deeper,” said Euromonitor analyst Dimitrios Dimakakos, based in London.

Iran Talk agreement deadline bumped again! Netanyahu: Tough Terrorism talk in Italy!
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (Tuesday, 30 June 2015), met with Italian Foreign Minister Paolo Gentilloni and said at the start of their meeting:
“Our relationship is intact. It’s going forward. It also reflects our common understanding that we live in a very tough neighborhood. Israel has to defend itself against the forces of terror. These forces committed three atrocities, three countries in three continents in one day just two days ago. And we are all under attack.
“When I look around, I think what we need to do is to have unequivocal condemnation of the terrorists and their sponsors. The greatest sponsor of terrorism in the world is Iran. “Iran was just confirmed as a preeminent state sponsor of terrorism in a US State Department report. It also confirmed the continual abuse of human rights in Iran under the present government. Executions are up; imprisonments are up; the harassment of gays, minorities and others; the violation of human rights continues unabashedly in Iran under Rouhani and continues all the time outside Iran in the attacks, in the attempts at conquest, in the proxy wars that Iran is supporting, and in the global terror network that Iran is conducting in over 30 countries with its henchmen, Hezbollah, and directly through its own agents.
“We believe that it is a fundamental mistake to enable such a terrorist regime to get to nuclear weapons, which is what the proposed agreement will give them. It will give them a definite pathway to nuclear bombs – not a bomb, but nuclear bombs. It will also replenish their coffers with many billions, actually perhaps up to hundreds of billions of dollars, to enable them to continue their terrorism and aggression. This is something that is wrong. It is dangerous. It is dangerous for Israel, for Italy, for Europe, for the United States, for the world.
“The world is properly concerned and aghast at the violence and savagery of ISIS. No one would dream of allowing the Islamic State of ISIS to have nuclear weapons. Why would anyone consider giving the Islamic State of Iran, which is a lot more powerful than ISIS and acts with much greater power than ISIS to have additional power of nuclear weapons? That’s a mistake. The Islamic State of Iran, the foremost sponsor of international terrorism, should not have access to nuclear weapons. “We need a better deal. This deal should not pass.

ISIS influence expands in Mexico
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Our southern border is long and U.S. border patrol agents work to fight illegal activity like illegal immigration, drugs and now according to an FBI consultant, the border could be an attractive region for ISIS thanks in part to powerful drug lords.
“Drug dealers have found a way to move money without it being followed,” said Tyrone Powers, Former FBI Agent. “They found a way to move people in and out and they found a way to move product.”
That product powers refers to is tons and tons of meth, heroin and pot transferred through a labyrinth of tunnels from Mexico.
Drugs that are headed for the streets of the U.S.
But these tunnels could easily be an underground highway for ISIS to spawn its brutality here.
“The stronger they get over there, the more power they have so I can definitely see, in the future, collaboration between terrorist groups and drug dealers to our south,” said Senator Lindsey Graham, South Carolina, 2016 Presidential Candidate
“It’s individuals they bring into this country, maybe at some point, suicide bombers which is really scary and then weapons of mass destruction,” said Powers.
Terrorist experts say the epidemic of unstable leadership in Mexico, combined with ruthless drug cartels creates a vacuum.
“What’s been going on in Mexico creates an opportunity for any organization to try to take advantage of it, whether it’s ISIS or Al Shabbab,” said Brandon Behlendorf, Terrorist Targeting Strategist.
Two major drug cartels that could attract ISIS cover a lot of land in Mexico. Both skirt the U.S. border.
The Sinalos Federation takes up western Mexico and borders Texas to California.
Los Zetas occupies eastern Mexico and hugs the southern Texas border.
Experts say Al Qaeda already tried linking up with drug lords in Mexico roughly 15 years ago. But to no avail.
But Isis is far more determined than Al Qaeda.
“It makes logical sense for ISIS to do this,” said powers. “But I do not think they’ll be catching the intelligence agencies off guard, because this has been a persistent problem whether it was Al Qaeda or any other group.”
Mexico Border-The Wave:
DALLAS, Texas (1080 KRLD) – As we enter the merciless summer months where temperatures average well above 100 degrees along the Texas Mexico border, the possibility exist for a larger wave of causalities among illegal immigrants trying to gain access to the United States.
With the oppressive summer heat “it’s going to be very, very dangerous in this part of the country to have young kids women and other folks to come in,” says Texas Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-Laredo, TX).
On Monday a South Texas sheriff announced the discovery of a 11 year old Guatemalan boys body about a mile from the border. Cuellar said the discovery of the boys body reinforces just how perilous the journey is into the US.
“Certainly I hope they stop coming because we probably will have more deaths as the hot weather continues,” says Cuellar. “It’s not just the heat that could kill them but there are other dangers. Officials at Lackland Air Force Base told us that one-third of young girls that come across – and they were just like little babies; 10, 11, 14 years of age. That about one third of them get raped and/or abused on the way here.”
Cuellar says that as he was speaking to Customs and Border Patrol agents he was also discovering a disturbing trend of adults “renting” children in Central America in order to increase their chances of being able to stay in the U.S. once they cross over.
“I was talking to somebody that worked for Border Patrol, and he said that in the late 80’s there were a lot of kids from El Salvador coming in and what they were doing is they had a ‘rent-a-kid’ program.” says Cuellar “In other words they said ‘oh if I come in and I have a kid with me they’ll let me go.” And the Border Agent told him “Henry, I’m seeing this again, I cannot believe it.”
“This is a phenomenon that has gone on for years if not decades,” says George Grayson a Professor of Latin American Politics at William & Mary “As far as I know they pay the families (and remember these economies are in sad shape) and therefore to get maybe a few hundred dollars you’re willing to give up your 7th or 8th child.”
Grayson says that coyotes (smugglers) will often use children as a distraction, “Because your heart goes out to children. If the same group of organized criminals is trying to move drugs you can distract them by having a group of children moving into one part of the McAllen corridor into Texas and then you have your drugs moving in a few miles away.”
Meanwhile Cuellar goes onto say that the wave of illegal immigrants coming across the Southern Texas border has not ebbed at all. “It still is bad… about 1,200 to 1,500 people they’re catching a day and about 20 to 30 percent of them are kids with no parents.”
JULY 02, 2015
Following the influx of illegal immigrant minors from Central America, an official at the federal agency charged with protecting public health describes Barack Obama as “the worst pres we have ever had,” an “amateur” and “Marxist,” according to internal emails obtained by Judicial Watch.
JW got the records as part of an investigation into the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) activation of an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) to deal with the barrage of illegal alien minors last summer. Tens of thousands of Central Americans came into the United States through the Mexican border and contagious diseases—many considered to be eradicated in the U.S.—became a tremendous concern. The CDC, which operates under the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), responded by opening an emergency facility designed to monitor and coordinate response activities to eminent public health threats.
This special emergency division was created after the 2001 terrorist attacks and has responded to more than 50 public health threats, including hurricanes, food borne disease outbreaks, the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic and the Haiti cholera outbreak. Scientists from across the CDC are brought together to analyze, validate, and efficiently exchange information during a public health emergency and connect with response partners. The EOC also coordinates the deployment of CDC staff and the procurement and management of all equipment and supplies that agency responders may need during their deployment.
It’s a major and costly operation that can stick American taxpayers with a huge tab. That’s why JW launched a probe when the Obama administration took in the illegal immigrants, initially coined Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC), with open arms last summer. JW has sued the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for planning records involving the border crisis as well as information relating to the solicitation of “on-demand escort services” for the 65,000 UACs that remain in the U.S. Last year JW also reported that the illegal immigrant minors have brought in serious diseases, including swine flu, dengue fever, possibly Ebola virus and tuberculosis.
The CDC records obtained by JW this week include email exchanges between agency officials directly involved in the activation of the EOC to handle the health threats created by the influx of illegal alien minors last summer. In an email dated June 9, 2014, CDC Logistics Management Specialist George Roark wrote to CDC Public Health Advisor William Adams that “no country in the world would allow” the influx. Adams replies that “in ten years or less, they’ll all be voting…Commander’s intent…” Roark fires back by describing Obama as “the worst pres we have ever had…he truly is ‘the amateur’ but a Marxist too.”

3rd “Alternative” Prominent Doctor From Florida Found Dead in 2 weeks. Authorities say MD was murdered.
July 1, 2015 Less than 2 weeks ago the first doctor, a controversial Autism researcher loved by his patients, Dr. Jeff Bradstreet MD, was found in a river with a gunshot wound to his chest. The second doctor is Dr. Bruce Hedendal DC PhD of Boca Roton area (E Coast, North of Miami) who died suddenly on Father’s day. Sources tell me that he was found in his car and had died but the car, but there was no car accident they say. He was just in his car. Deceased. Both Dr Hedendal and Dr. Bradstreet had dealt with run ins with the feds in the past. In fact, Dr. Bradstreet’s office was just raided by the FDA days before he died. The body of Dr. Teresa Ann Sievers, 46, was found Monday morning at her Jarvis Road home after she didn’t arrive at work.
**Author’s note: Dr. Jeff Bradstreet was my Grandson’s doctor when his practice was briefly based in Phoenix. My best guess is that Big Pharma and the CDC really do not like the “Vaccines make you sick” proponents. Makes you wonder what else they aren’t telling us! RIP Dr. Bradstreet…your work on earth is done.
California Nanny State Passes Controversial Mandatory Vaccination law
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a hotly contested California bill to impose one of the strictest school vaccination laws in the country in the wake of an outbreak of measles at Disneyland late last year.
WHAT PROMPTED THE BILL
After a measles outbreak at Disneyland in December sickened over 100 people in the U.S. and Mexico, Democratic Sens. Richard Pan of Sacramento and Ben Allen of Santa Monica introduced the bill, designed to raise immunization rates in under-vaccinated pockets of the state.
The state’s overall vaccination rate appears sufficient to maintain what immunologists call herd immunity, or the percentage at which enough people are vaccinated to protect the community as a whole. But suburban areas have seen a decline in immunizations in the past decade, with some schools having immunization rates near 50 percent. Herd immunity for measles is between 92 and 94 percent, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
California now joins West Virginia and Mississippi as the only states without a personal-belief exemption for vaccines. Medical exemptions will still be available for children with serious health issues. When considering exemptions, doctors may take family medical history into account.
The California Assembly’s Health Committee also approved legislation Tuesday requiring home daycare providers and daycare center workers to be vaccinated against measles, pertussis and influenza.
The bill’s supporters, including doctors, hospital representatives and health advocates, celebrated the news at an elementary school Tuesday. Lawmakers held babies, declaring the public would be better protected as a result of the bill.
“The science is clear,” Pan said. “Californians have spoken. The governor and the Legislature have spoken. No more preventable contagions. No more outbreaks. No more hospitalizations. No more deaths. And no more fear.”
The bill has proved contentious, with thousands of parents calling representatives and protesting at the Capitol. One state senator said pushback has been so fierce that he briefly closed his district office out of concerns for his staff’s safety. Amid this intensity, the bill passed through four legislative committees and survived votes in both houses. The Senate on Monday approved amendments to the bill, and the governor signed it less than 24 hours later.
Opponents of the bill were deeply emotional Tuesday, but they vowed to continue their fight. Our Kids Our Choice, an advocacy group that rallied against the bill, said it still has a number of options and is considering both litigation and taking the question directly to voters through a referendum.
