The failure of the UK's £17 million Trident missile launch

UK - A Trident missile test failure has 'undermined' the nuclear deterrent, the Defence Secretary was warned last night. In an incident branded 'worse than an embarrassment', a £17 million missile misfired and crashed into the sea next to the submarine that launched it. But Grant Shapps insisted Britian's nuclear deterrent remains 'effective' and 'dependable'. He said the Government retains 'absolute confidence' in the nuclear weapons system despite the second failed launch in a row following a misfire in 2016.

German economy is in 'troubled waters'

GERMANY - The German economy is in "troubled waters," according to country's economy minister. Robert Habeck said the German government's forecast for economic growth for 2024 had been revised down from 1.3% to 0.2%. This means that Europe's largest economy has effectively stalled - although it has avoided entering a full-blown recession. Mr Habeck previously called Germany's economic situation "dramatically bad".

GERMANY Getting ready for war

GERMANY - The Bundeswehr is propelling a militarisation of civil society with its “Operationsplan Deutschland”. Military planners want to integrate civilian resources for combating Russia. The still confidential “Operationsplan Deutschland” (Operations Plan Germany) announced by the Bundeswehr sets out not only military measures but also comprehensive steps towards a militarisation of German society as a whole. To discuss the details of the plan, conceived under the motto “Germany. Together. Defend”, Lieutenant General André Bodemann - Commander of the Bundeswehr Homeland Defence Command - invited “around 300” experts to Berlin at the end of January for an “intensified exchange of ideas between military and civilian actors”.

North Korean missile contained US and European components

NORTH KOREA - A North Korean ballistic missile fired last month by the Russian military in Ukraine contained hundreds of components that trace back to companies in the US and Europe, according to a new report. The findings mark the first public identification of North Korea’s reliance on foreign technology for its missile program and underscore the persistent problem facing the Biden administration as it tries to keep cheap, Western-made microelectronics intended for civilian use from winding up in weapons used by North Korea, Iran and Russia.

Was America Just Attacked?

USA - We have now been put on notice that our communication infrastructure is extremely vulnerable. What would we do if we suddenly couldn’t use the Internet or our phones any longer? For a lot of people, such a scenario would be unthinkable. In fact, it felt like the “world is ending” for many AT&T customers on Thursday. The disruption to AT&T’s network only lasted for a few hours, but it created quite a frenzy. If we are going to see this much panic for an outage that happens for just a few hours, what would our society look like if Internet and phone communication was down for days, weeks or even months?

Ship ablaze after missile attack in Gulf of Aden

MIDDLE EAST - A vessel caught fire after being hit by two missiles southeast of the Yemeni port of Aden on Thursday, the United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO) has said. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack. It comes as Houthi militants have escalated attacks on vessels in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden. The militants who control large parts of Yemen have been targeting merchant ships in response to Israel’s military operation in Gaza, which started in October. The United States and the UK have formed an international coalition to protect navigation in the area.

Latest Craze

USA - Do you know what a Zynbabwe is? Or an upper-decky lip pillow? OK, here’s an easier one — how about just Zyn? If you are scratching your head, don’t feel bad: Almost no adult I have spoken to has had any idea either. This is despite the fact that the nicotine pouch Zyn is a jewel in the crown of a multibillion-dollar tobacco company. Haven’t heard of nicotine pouches to begin with? Neither had I. But when I ask my 19-year-old neighbor Ian if he knows what a Zynbabwe is, I get a shocked reply: “You know about Zyns?”

Does America’s freedom and liberty last only as long as its morality?

USA - In addition to establishing a representative republic with all sorts of checks and balances to protect against the biblically defined evil nature of Man, our Founding Fathers repeatedly expressed the belief that Christian morality was absolutely essential for both the preservation of liberty and the stability of law. They emphasized this crucial point in their writings over and over again: Consider, for example, Samuel Adams who served as Governor of Massachusetts, was a signer of the Declaration of Independence, and was the organizer of the Boston Tea Party. He wrote: While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when they lose their virtue they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader. Religion and good morals are the only solid foundations of public liberty and happiness.”

The Western World’s Dying Culture

USA - Many look at Generation Z and wonder how things could have gone so horribly wrong, but it isn’t a mystery at all. The truth is that the young adults of today are the product of the western world’s dying culture. We have often been warned that the liberal elite will fundamentally transform our culture, but in reality they have already fundamentally transformed it. They dominate education, they dominate the media, they dominate the entertainment industry, they dominate the corporate world, they dominate at all levels of government and they even dominate most of our major religious institutions. They have imposed a culture on us that is completely foreign to the culture that was once dominant in the western world, and the consequences have been nothing short of dramatic.

Sexualization of Children Has Replaced Education

USA - In New Hampshire a state representative read to the House sexually explicit passages from school materials for middle school kids. Clearly these materials are part of the sexual grooming of kids for pedophiles. Democrats objected to the reading but were voted down. Bussing was the method of racially integrating schools. The result was to destroy Parent-Teacher Associations (PTA). Consequently, parents lost contact with teachers and influence over what is taught. Now the schools are in the hands of those busy at work sexualizing children. This is the main achievement of school integration along with the complete collapse in educational standards. School integration not only is a total failure. It did massive harm.

 
American Children Are so Bad at Math...

USA - The most recent results of the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) highlight a concerning trend for US students in the field of math. American children are so bad at math it’s actually becoming a national security threat. Obviously concerned by the findings, the Defense Department has called for a new initiative to provide support for education in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). As The Hechinger Report reported, China, the United States’ biggest rival, has eight times the number of college graduates in these disciplines compared to the United States, while Russia, another major foe, has four times the number of engineers. This alarming disparity, noted the Hechinger Report piece, has prompted concerns beyond the realm of education. The United States’ mathematical failings pose a direct threat to its technological supremacy.

US Cattle Inventory to Lowest Levels Recorded in 73 years

USA - We have been monitoring the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and its intention to begin regulations focused on methane. This is out of concern that the organization is poised to join the globalist “War on Meat.” And while rules will start with the “evil” fossil-fuel industry, agriculture is the major emitter of methane. Because of the bovine digestive system, cattle ranches and dairy farms produce significant amounts of this gas. And while methane is a more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, the American plains were once filled with buffalo herds… and the planet remained quite habitable. However, while those rules have yet to be implemented, ranchers must make hard decisions based on current realities. The cattle inventory is currently down to the lowest levels recorded in 73 years.

 
Saudi Foreign Minister: Palestinian State ‘Already Exists

SAUDI ARABIA - Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan said in an interview published Tuesday that the Palestinian Authority, which controls the West Bank, was a “capable and credible” entity that should be considered a contender to govern both the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, united in a hypothetical state of “Palestine.”

“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!
