Why did Hurricane Michael leave cities with an electric purple sky as it engulfed Florida? An Ohio motorist has filmed the night sky appearing to glow a magnificent electric purple over the city of Cleveland….
The death toll from the monster Florida hurricane Michael is officially at 27, however, hundreds are still missing.
On top of the devastation from the hurricane, large swaths of the Florida Panhandle and tens of thousands of residents face a dark, powerless future.
Major utilities say it will still take weeks to repair downed lines and poles and reconnect customers.
A monster 80 mile-wide path of devastation has left a massive area without power which could take up to another month to fix.
According to the Miami Herald, the utilities also face a daunting challenge reassembling the shattered grid.
Gulf Power spokesman Rick DelaHaya said there’s a lot that can’t be salvaged: “This isn’t a restore… this is a rebuild.”
Reuters reported this morning that rescue teams are searching ravaged areas of Florida’s Panhandle on Tuesday for hundreds of people reported missing nearly a week after Hurricane Michael flattened communities in the region and killed at least 27.
Matthew Marchetti, the co-founder of Houston-based CrowdSource Rescue, which had hundreds of volunteers on the ground, said he expects the death toll to rise as phone service is restored and roads are cleared.
“For every one person we have made contact with, there are probably three we haven’t,” Marchetti said.
Teams from the volunteer organization were searching for more than 1,135 people in Florida who lost contact with friends and family, he said.
Defying US, UN gives ‘Palestine’ extra rights so it can head major bloc in 2019

The General Assembly on Tuesday voted by an overwhelming majority to temporarily grant the “State of Palestine” additional rights and privileges, allowing it to head the biggest bloc of developing countries at the United Nations.
A whopping 146 states voted in favor of Resolution A/73/L.5, while only three countries — the US, Israel and Australia — opposed it. Fifteen countries abstained. US ambassador Nikki Haley branded the move “a mistake.”
Palestine’s delegates will be able co-sponsor proposals and amendments, make statements, and raise procedural motions. They will have these extra rights for the duration of its chairmanship of the Group of 77, the largest bloc of developing nations at the UN. The Palestinians will assume the bloc’s presidency on January 1, 2019, and hold it for one year.
Palestine — which is not a member state of the UN but has observer state status — was chosen in July to head the so-called G77 plus China, a consortium now consisting of 134 nations that often speaks in one voice at the General Assembly.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held an emergency cabinet meeting in light of the rocket attacks against Israel from the Gaza Strip Wednesday, according to a statement released by the prime minister’s office.
"Israel views very seriously the attacks against it along the fence, in the Gaza border region and in Beersheba, everywhere. I said at the opening of the cabinet meeting this week that if these attacks do not stop, we will stop them.
"I want to say today: Israel will act with great strength," the prime minister said.
The "left" hates the "right" and the "right" hates the "left", and the mainstream media and many of our leading politicians are having a good old time stirring the pot on a continual basis.
New Study Reveals Most Evangelicals Believe God Accepts Worship of ALL Religions
Oct 16, 2018 | 0 |
(The Christian Post) A majority of evangelicals now believe that God accepts the worship of all religions, according to a new study released by Ligonier Ministries that shows many have also grown confused about some core doctrines of the Christian faith. Chris Larson, president of Ligonier Ministries, says the results of the 2018 State of Theology survey conducted by LifeWay Research and released Tuesday shows an urgent need for bold teaching of historic Christianity.
“The State of Theology survey highlights the urgent need for a courageous ministry that faithfully teaches the historic Christian faith. It’s never been popular to talk about mankind’s sinfulness or the exclusive claims of Jesus Christ, but at a time when a darkened world needs the light of the Gospel, it’s disheartening to see many within the evangelical church confused about what the Bible teaches. We hope this survey provides local churches with a little more insight into what people in our neighborhoods and in our pews actually believe,” Larson said in a statement

Message To Hollywood Bimbos: You Do Not Speak For, Nor Represent, All Women In America – NewsFlash: We Do Not Care What You Think
By Susan Duclos – All News PipeLine
Why is it that Hollywood celebrities think they can preach to Americans, tell them what to do, who to vote for, what to think? Even more annoying is seeing the women in Hollywood, I call them the "Hollywood Bimbos" making sweeping statements about how "women feel," without a clue as to how anyone outside their liberal, Hollywood bubbles actually thinks or feels.
Case in point: Alyssa Milano, attention whore supreme, is one of the Hollywood bimbos spending "unprecedented" time attempting to influence the midterm election results, claiming "This is all personal now. And when we are seeing our rights stripped away, we’re scared. Women are scared."

- Turkish authorities repeatedly have threatened Europe with an influx of migrants. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s threats should not be ignored.
- Ever since the migrant crisis started to escalate in 2011 — with the onset of civil war in Syria — those who were critical of mass, unchecked immigration have been called "racists," "bigots" or "Islamophobes."
- Today, however, the continued chaos in many European countries caused by immigration, and accompanying increase in crime — including murder and rape committed by Islamist extremists — appear to have proven the critics right.

Australian PM tells Palestinian muslims to shove it, Jerusalem belongs to Israel
Muslims all over the Middle East are outraged after the Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison informed the Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu that he is considering officially recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and moving the Australian embassy to Jerusalem.
As the only democratic state in the entire Middle East, only Israel can protect and preserve the holy sites of all religions in Jerusalem.
Israel is the only country in the entire Middle East where Christians are safe and women are not considered second class citizens.
Giving Jerusalem to Hamas is like giving the Vatican to ISIS.
Just look at what is happening to Christians all over the Middle East in countries with Muslim majority, the brutal Islamic persecution of Christians has become genocide.
Australia, Canada and the UK must follow Trump and recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Above, red line showing the red tide algae bloom
Florida’s marine shoreline totals more than 8,400 miles but less than 200 miles of the Florida coast is free from an unprecedented red tide algae bloom.
The algae bloom now stretches from Pensacola on the Alabama border in the Gulf of Mexico all the way down the west coast around the southern tip and up the eastern coast to Sebastian.
The bloom has killed an astonishing amount of marine life as well as causing health issues to local residents and tourists.
Just a few hours after Sebastian Daily broke the news that Red Tide was seen in Vero Beach south of the Sebastian Inlet, Indian River County officials say they were working to "assess conditions." "There are indications that Red Tide has reached Indian River County and we are working closely with the Indian River County Department of Health to assess conditions," a statement reads from officials.

Switzerland Votes to Criminalize Homophobia and ‘Hate Speech’
Oct 15, 2018 | 1 |
(CBN News) Switzerland has voted to make it illegal to be homophobic or discriminate against anyone in the LGBTQ community. The National Council, which is the lower house in Switzerland’s legislature, voted 118 – 60 in favor of a law that says anyone guilty of homophobia will face heavy fines or up to three years in prison. “I tabled the motion after speaking to friends of mine who have personally been victims of verbal and physical homophobic violence,” Mathias Reynard, a member of the Swiss Socialist Party told ShortList.
Reynard spearheaded the new law and called it a “great success for human rights.” “Homophobia is not an opinion. It’s a crime. One in five homosexuals attempted suicide, half before the age of 20. This victory sends a strong signal. I have already received hundreds of reactions.” The law criminalizes “physical violence” and “verbal violence” against LGBT people. Reynard never makes clear what “verbal violence” actually means, but says it’s a crime punishable by law
