Don’t Panic But California Could Be on the Brink of Its Worst-Ever Wildfire Season
Strange Sounds –
Aug 20, 2019
After being devastated by wildfires last year, California has gone through several months of being relatively fire-free.
But as we head into the heat of late summer, the state is ready to burn. When the ignition happens, experts warn, it could cause wildfires more intense and destructive than anything California has experienced.

Phoenix has broken another record – and not the good kind.
The National Weather Service tweeted that Phoenix had broken its heat record for Aug. 20 on Tuesday afternoon, reaching a high of 113 deg F (45 deg C) just after 2 p.m.
The previous record was 112 deg F (44.4 deg C) in 1986.
Isaac Smith, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, told The Arizona Republic that the unusually high temperatures were due to a high-pressure system.
Are airstrikes on Shi’ite militias in Iraq new front for Israel?

Four airstrikes against Iranian-backed Shi’ite militia bases in Iraq in the last month represent a new front that appears to be developing against these groups, however they remain shrouded in mystery. On Tuesday, an explosion destroyed munition storage near Balad Air base in Iraq.
Israel’s Channel 12 reported on the explosion. It is now clear that it could be a new front line, the report noted. The mysterious airstrikes have targeted storage of rockets and is aimed at groups backed by Iran. The first strikes hit Camp Ashraf and Amerli and the third struck Camp Falcon near Baghdad. The first two areas were not far from the Iranian border. These are sensitive areas and are associated with areas that militias seek to store their weapons, many of them stockpiled during the war on ISIS. However, it is not clear how the strikes were carried out; some media and locals have reported drones and others suggested it could be the F-35.
There has been complete silence in Israel regarding the air strikes, however, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was reportedly asked about them in Ukraine. Israel has warned in the past about Iranian entrenchment in Syria. Netanyahu said in July that the F-35 can reach Iran. Sumer News in Iraq has reported in Arabic that Netanyahu hinted Israel was behind the strikes. Al-Ain news reported that the base was linked to Ktaib Hezbollah, one of the militias in Iraq closely linked to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

Israel has conducted several strikes on Iranian-controlled bases in Syria and Iraq in recent weeks with permission from the United States and Russia, a Western diplomatic source told a Saudi-owned newspaper Wednesday.
Moscow and Washington agreed that the Jewish state could conduct these attacks on Iranian targets in order to “ensure Israel’s security,” the source told the London-based Arabic-language Asharq Al-Awsat.
In recent weeks, a number of explosions have been reported in Iraqi military installations connected to pro-Iranian Shiite militias, including on Tuesday night in an arms depot north of Baghdad.

Aug 21, 2019 | 0 |
(CP) – A pastor in southwest Mexico was shot and killed during a church service on Sunday amid ongoing targeting of faith leaders by criminal gangs. According to international watchdog charity group Christian Solidarity Worldwide, Pastor Alfrery Líctor Cruz Canseco was preaching from the pulpit of the Fraternidad Cristiana church in the town of Tlalixtac de Cabrera in the Oaxaca state when he was shot at point-blank range. Canseco died while he was being transported to a local hospital. His attacker was
arrested after congregants prevented his escape. “We extend our deepest condolences to the family and congregation of Pastor Cruz Canseco,” CSW Chief Executive Merwyn Thomas said in a statement. “The fact that he was targeted while in the pulpit is particularly shocking.” A translated statement posted on the Fraternidad Christiana Facebook page reads: “We regret the departure of Alfrery Lictor Cruz Canseco, friend and brother in Christ very loved by our congregation.

Some of the things that are being done in the name of “scientific research” are almost too horrifying to talk about. But it is vitally important that we shine a light on these practices, because most Americans don’t realize what is really going on. Normally when we talk about crime, the primary focus is on the drug abuse and violence in the urban areas of our major cities. But the truth is that often the worst crimes are committed by “doctors”, “scientists” and “researchers” wearing white lab coats. The experiments that I am about to share with you are incredibly disgusting, and I apologize for this in advance, but the only way that they will stop is if they are fully exposed. And since these experiments are funded by our tax dollars, the nation as a whole will ultimately be held accountable for the great evil that is taking place. (Read More…)
Fires raging in Brazil’s Amazon rainforest have hit a record high number this year, according to new data from the country’s space research agency, as concerns grow over President Jair Bolsonaro’s management of the environment. Nearly 73,000 fires were recorded between January and August, compared with 39,759 in all of 2018, the National Institute for Space Research (INPE) said on Monday. The surge marks an 83 percent increase over the same period last year and is the highest since INPE records began in 2013.
Drag Queen Story Hour

The Drag Queen Story Hour question-and-answer session in Canada didn’t go as planned. Street preacher Dorre Love told them to repent or go to Hell
As born again Christians, we are called to a higher standard, that is always the goal though sometimes we admittedly will miss the mark. But our apostle Paul is crystal clear on what we should do if we feel that another person has done us wrong. We are not to avenge ourselves against that person, but put in the Lord’s hands to work out a resolution leading to restoration. The Jezebel spirit arises when we choose to ignore Romans 12 and other places and take the matter into our own hands instead. Even if you feel that someone else has sinned against you, taking the matter into your hands against them is now a sin against God. This is the Jezebel spirit.

When Israel refused admission to two members of the US House of Representatives, the media made it sound like disrespect for America. They didn’t mention that Israel is a sovereign nation. As such, it has the right and obligation to follow its own laws. In this case, that means it has the right to refuse entry into Israel to anyone who supports the Boycotts, Divestment, and Sanctions movement.
1. Soberly consider the insidiously sinful and murderous agenda of the Democrat Party since Hillary lost the 2016 election.
This agenda will become America once the Rapture of the Church occurs!
2. Suddenly, top Israeli politicians are stridently trying to top the other in their stated plans to hit Hamas in Gaza the hardest.
Meanwhile, Hamas is weaponizing the Friday protests at the Gaza wall

First-Ever Mandatory Water Cutbacks Next Year Along the Colorado River For Arizona, Nevada and Mexico
Strange Sounds –
Aug 20, 2019
Arizona, Nevada and Mexico will be required to take less water from the Colorado River for the first time next year.
This decision has been taken to keep enough water in Lake Mead to reduce the risk of a crash.
This March 26, 2019 photo shows the water level of the Colorado River, as seen from the Hoover Dam, Ariz. For the seven states that rely on the Colorado River that carries snowmelt from the Rocky Mountains to the Gulf of California, that means a future with increasingly less water for farms and cities although climate scientists say it’s hard to predict how much less. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation on Thursday, Aug. 15, 2019, will release its projections for next year’s supply from Lake Mead, which feeds Nevada, Arizona and California. (AP Photo/Richard Vogel)
It’s not because there’s a good snowpack that the drought is over! Projections are showing showing that as of Jan. 1, the level of Lake Mead will sit just below a threshold that triggers some cuts. And this is also why the federal Bureau of Reclamation activated the first-ever mandatory reductions in water deliveries last Thursday.
More than half a billion bees dropped dead in Brazil within 3 months

More than half a billion bees dropped dead in Brazil within just three months, according to Bloomberg. Researchers say the main cause of death is pesticides, which could end up effecting more than the bees.
As some of the most integral pollinators in nature, bees contribute to the reproduction of various plants. About 75% of the world’s crops depend on pollination by bees, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) reports.

More than 120 Cases of Lung Disease in 15 States Could be Linked to Vaping
Aug 19, 2019 | 0 |
(CNN) — At least 15 states have identified more than 120 cases of lung disease or injury that could be linked to vaping, a CNN survey of state health departments has found. States with the most cases include Wisconsin, with 15 confirmed cases and 15 more under investigation. Illinois has 10 confirmed cases, while 12 more are under investigation. California is looking into 19 such cases. The New York State Department of Health said Friday it was “actively investigating” 11 cases. Indiana and New Jersey both reported nine cases, of which Indiana has confirmed six. Health officials in Connecticut, Florida, Iowa,
Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas and Utah also said they were aware of confirmed or potential cases. A total of 42 states and Washington, DC, provided CNN with a response. “These latest reports of pulmonary disease in people using vaping products in New York and other states are proof that more study is needed on the long-term health effects of these products,” Dr. Howard Zucker, health commissioner for New York State, said in a statement Friday. Health officials in multiple states said it is still unclear whether there’s a connection between the cases or whether vaping definitively caused these illnesses — which led to multiple people being hospitalized.
Earth’s inner core is doing something strange
Aug 20, 2019 | 0 |
(NG) – On September 27, 1971, a nuclear bomb exploded on Russia’s Novaya Zemlya islands. The powerful blast sent waves rippling so deep inside Earth they ricocheted off the inner core, pinging an array of hundreds of mechanical ears some 4,000 miles away in the Montana wilderness. Three years later, that array picked up a signal when a second bomb exploded at nearly the same spot. This pair of nuclear explosions was part of hundreds of tests detonated during the throes of Cold War fervor. Now, the records of these wiggles are making waves among geologists: They have helped scientists calculate one of the most precise estimates yet of how fast the planet’s inner core is spinning.
Surface-dwellers know that Earth spins on its axis once about every 24 hours. But the inner core is a roughly moon-sized ball of iron floating within an ocean of molten metal, which means it is free to turn independently from our planet’s large-scale spin, a phenomenon known as super-rotation. And how fast it’s going has been hotly debated. Capitalizing on the zigzagged signals from those decades-old nuclear explosions, John Vidale, a seismologist at the University of Southern California, now has the latest estimate for this rate. In a recent study published in Geophysical Research Letters, he reports that the inner core likely inches along just faster than Earth’s surface.
University Students Face Punishment for Using Incorrect Pronouns
Aug 20, 2019 | 0 |
OPINION (Todd Starnes) – It is now considered a “microaggression” to use the incorrect pronoun for someone at Northern Kentucky University, according to Young America’s Foundation (YAF) and its Censorship Exposed Project. YAF spokesman Spencer Brown said on the Todd Starnes Radio Show that they uncovered documents “being used to indoctrinate the rising generation.” “We use public records laws in these states to request the internal documents from public colleges and universities and find out what is in the curriculum, what administrators are saying and doing with these sorts of tools,”
said YAF spokesman Spencer Brown on The Todd Starnes Show. “What we find is that it’s just indoctrinating students in all these ridiculous things.” Northern Kentucky University defines a “microaggression” as “verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignities,” that communicate “hostile, derogatory, or negative slights and insults toward people of marginalized groups.” Microaggressions toward trans people in the classroom include not asking or refusing to use correct names, not asking or refusing to use correct pronouns, and asking trans students, faculty and staff things about their “real” name.
Outrage after California high-school students sang Nazi song and gave Hitler salute
Aug 20, 2019 | 0 |
(DB) – A group of high-school students in Southern California gave a Nazi salute and sang a Nazi song during an awards ceremony last year, according to video reivewed by The Daily Beast. The video shows about 10 members of the boys’ water polo team at Pacifica High School in Garden Grove, California, throwing the salute once used to greet Adolf Hitler while singing a Nazi marching song played for German troops during World War II. It’s the second such incident in the region in the year. The video was uploaded to Instagram by one of the athletes, who also posted lyrics to the song in his Instagram bio. After the video expired, the athlete removed the reference. He did not respond to requests for comment.
A spokesperson for the Garden Grove Unified School district where Pacifica High School resides said the school administrators first became aware of the incident and video four months later in March, but did not say if they disciplined anyone. “While the district cannot comment on student discipline, the school did address this situation with all involved students and families,” the spokesperson said. “The district adheres to strong policies about harassment and cultural sensitivity, and we condemn all acts of anti-Semitism and hate in all forms. We remain focused on educating students about cultural sensitivity and are committed to holding students accountable,

Major cities all over America are being transformed into rotting, decaying, disease-infested hellholes, and it doesn’t exactly take a genius to figure out why this is happening. Our actions are the product of our belief systems, and the major U.S. cities where the conditions are the worst are always dominated by a particular political ideology. If the citizens of those major cities like the results that they are currently getting, then they should just continue to do what they have been doing. But if they want real change, then those citizens are going to have to be willing to make fundamentally different choices than they have been making in the past. (Read More…)
