US special forces deployed to 133 countries in first half of 2018

USA - US special forces have already deployed to 133 nations in the first half of 2018, signaling a sharp increase in the Pentagon’s shadowy operations when compared to previous years, according to a new report. America’s Special Operations forces (SOF) are stationed all around the world, where they participate in a wide range of missions, including special reconnaissance, unconventional warfare, counterterrorism, hostage rescue, as well as training and advising foreign troops. But special forces soldiers are also regularly involved in shadowy combat operations that receive little to no oversight. Shrouded in secrecy, these global operations continue to grow in quantity, size and expense – despite the fact that even Congress is often left in the dark... According to Turse, last year US special forces deployed to a staggering 149 countries –about 75 percent of the nations on the planet.

 
Boris Twists the Knife

UK - Boris Johnson launched an excoriating attack on Theresa May's 'dithering' Brexit strategy today in his first Commons speech since quitting. The former foreign secretary exploded back into the political fray by lambasting her 'miserable' strategy as the Prime Minister struggles to contain open warfare in the Tory party. He complained that a 'fog of self doubt' had descended on the government after Mrs May's landmark Lancaster House speech on Brexit last year, and she had allowed negotiations with the EU to be dictated by questions about the Irish border.

Do Americans Really Care About The Situation With Russia?

USA - While ever-hope-filled expectations among the left are for a 'blue wave' in the Mid-term elections, we suspect things may not turn out quite as planned given the last week's "crisis". Even before President Trump had set foot in Helsinki, the left and the media were banging the drums of war against "the thug" Putin and how he would trump Trump, and once the press conference furore was over, all hell broke loose as the left-leaning world attempted to out-signal one another's virtue as to the "treasonous", "surrender" that had occurred.

Tech giants: What they’ll ban next

USA - The left-wing media has become a dangerous lynch mob, desperately calling for Infowars to be completely “deplatformed” (blacklisted) from all prominent online platforms. The calls for such drastic censorship action against Infowars centre around an array of utterly false accusations which fraudulently assert that Alex Jones claimed no children died in the Parkland shootings — a claim that is utterly false and fraudulent. Jones never uttered any such thing, and no one has produced a single video clip of him making such an assertion.

Terrible translations of Brexit White Paper make Britain a laughing stock in Brussels

UK - British officials botched the translation of Theresa May’s discredited White Paper into European languages, part of a UK strategy to win concessions from Brussels, and failed to translate the document into Irish, despite being locked in fraught Brexit talks over Ireland’s border. The paper’s executive summary, which Britain hopes to use to help solve the vexed border issue, has been translated, poorly, into 22 languages. The full 100-page document has only been translated into one other language, Welsh, which, unlike Irish, is not an official EU language. After The Telegraph contacted the British Government, an Irish version was published on Thursday afternoon, two days after the other translations...

 
Donald Trump lashes out at Europe

USA - Donald Trump hinted that he may block trade routes with Europe after its lawmakers hit Google with a record £3.9 billion fine over its smartphone business. The US president took to Twitter to lash out at the European Union, which handed the penalty to the search giant over its Android operating system. “I told you so! The European Union just slapped a Five Billion Dollar fine on one of our great companies, Google. They truly have taken advantage of the US, but not for long!," he wrote on the social network. It comes just days after he called the bloc a “foe of US”  for “what they do to us in trade”. Relations have hit a low point...

 
Which kills more Americans, cancer or chemotherapy?

USA - One in every three Americans will “contract” some form of cancer in their lifetime, and only about 50 percent will survive that attack. Those are some grim statistics, huh? Now get this: Has any doctor reviewed with you or your loved ones the odds of chemotherapy actually working, or what the statistics are for Americans getting killed by the now infamous chemical medicine that’s supposedly “designed” to kill the cancer?

Instagram censors Planned Parenthood meme posted by black activist

USA - Instagram deleted a meme comparing the number of blacks lynched by the Ku Klux Klan to the number of black fetuses aborted by Planned Parenthood. Ryan Bomberger, black co-founder of the pro-life Radiance Foundation who was conceived during the rape of his mother, is defending a controversial meme he created blasting abortion giant Planned Parenthood as worse than the KKK after Instagram said it encourages violence. “While writing this article, we were censored by Deities of Diversity. Apparently, Instagram deleted our post, threatening to restrict or disable our account if we violate their guidelines again. But … we didn’t violate any guidelines,” Bomberger wrote in his defense of the meme Friday.

Texas Smashes 1925 Heat Record

USA - North Texas smashed a 93-year-old daily heat record Thursday, with the mercury climbing to 108 degrees Fahrenheit (42 Celsius) in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. “Delay walking your dog until sunset” during the heat wave, the National Weather Service said in a message posted on Twitter. “Our infrared thermometer measured 136 degrees this afternoon on the sidewalk. These temperatures are hot enough to burn Fido’s paws.” Texas was set to break its power-demand record for the second day in a row, according to the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, the state’s grid operator. “It’s insanely hot here,” said Ercot spokeswoman Leslie Sopko. “You can only be outside if you’re in a swimming pool.”

 
Tornadoes Sweep Across Central Iowa

USA - A flurry of tornadoes swept through central Iowa Thursday afternoon, flattening buildings and damaging the courthouse in Marshalltown and hitting an agricultural machinery plant in Pella as people were working. Authorities said a hospital was evacuated and there were some injuries from the storms, but no reports of deaths. Hardest hit appeared to be Marshalltown , a city of 27,000 people about 50 miles (80 kilometers) northeast of Des Moines, where brick walls collapsed in the streets, roofs were blown off buildings and the cupola of the historic courthouse tumbled 175 feet (53 meters) to the ground.

 
EU hits Google with record $5 billion antitrust fine

EUROPE - The European Union hit Google with a record antitrust fine for abusing the dominance of its Android mobile operating system. It ordered Google to put an end to illegal conduct within 90 days, or else face additional charges of up to 5 percent of Alphabet's average daily worldwide turnover. The ruling comes little over a year after the EU fined the company $2.7 billion for favoring its shopping service over competitors. Along with the fine, the EU aims to change the way that Google conducts its business. Although the company doesn't break out how much revenue it makes from Android, it has said that its advertising business is growing much faster on mobile than desktop. By bundling its apps together, Google has much more real estate to sell its ads.

 
Inside Facebook: Secrets of the Social Network

UK - This investigative documentary in the estimable Dispatches strand sent a reporter undercover as a content moderator for a rare look at the secretive process that rules what can and what cannot be posed on the world’s biggest social network. What are their criteria for what gets deleted from the site and what stays? And what are the implications for the unwitting 2.2 billion people who use it?  Forget fake news, data harvesting or influencing elections. This was about the footsoldiers patrolling Facebook’s frontline. For Mark Zuckerberg and co, it won’t have made comfortable viewing. 

USA: Mystery as IDENTICAL letters appear in 21 newspapers

USA - Judge Brett Kavanaugh is going into the Supreme Court confirmation process with a hail of rhetorical arrows zinging by him, including a phony letter-writing campaign aimed at unsuspecting American newspaper editors. At least 21 papers were duped last week, including big-market brands like the Dallas Morning News and The Washington Times. They ran identical letters over a four-day period, each signed by a different person.

Peaceful multicultural societies don’t exist

HOLLAND - Peaceful multicultural societies don’t exist and the EU won’t be able to force “equal” migrant distribution on Eastern Europe, where colored people are beaten to a pulp, the Dutch FM said according to a leaked video.

“Just what is an APOSTLE?”
Just what is an Apostle?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!
