Russia Plans Missile-Firing Exercise Off Norway Amid NATO Drills

Missiles are fired by the Pyotr Veliky heavy nuclear-powered guided-missile cruiser during the Russian Navy’s Kumzha military exercise in May 2016.

The Russian Navy plans to test missiles in international waters off Norway’s coast this week, Norwegian and NATO officials say, as the Western military alliance conducts its largest military exercise since the end of the Cold War.

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said on October 29 the alliance was informed last week about the planned tests.

"Russia has a sizable presence in the north, also off Norway," Stoltenberg told the Norwegian news agency NTB.

"Large [Russian] forces take part in maneuvers and they practice regularly," he added.

Typhus cases reach 100 in LA; Disease spreading among homeless…

(Daily Mail) The number of flea-born Typhus cases in Los Angeles has hit 107. So far this year 72 patients have been recorded by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health with a further 15 in Long Beach and 20 in Pasadena. In the 2000s there were around 20 cases recorded per year and analysts are putting the dramatic rise down to a 47 percent increase in homelessness since 2012. One official in Long Beach told

NBC News that almost half a million potential cases are ‘under investigation.’ At the start of this month, Pasadena, a city in the north of the county and home to around 135,000 people, reported epidemic levels of typhus fever. But no new cases have been reported there since October 5. Flea-borne typhus occurs when feces from an infected insect come into contact with a person’s cut or gets rubbed into their eyes.

‘Churches’ Celebrate Halloween With Zombies, Dancing Skeletons, ‘Haunted Hayrides’ and ‘Spooktaculars’

(Christian News Network) Conservative, Christian-identifying churches nationwide are hosting Halloween-themed events throughout the month of October, some featuring or including Halloween-centered sermons and performances, haunted hayrides, and/or costume contests with children and adults alike dressing up up as skeletons, ghosts, witches and other images of death or evil. Chet Gallagher, a Christian activist and missions pastor who formerly served as a Nevada police officer, recently posted a short video of a “trunk or treat” event being held at Journey Church in Lebanon, Tennessee.

He said in the recording that he decided to stop and to record video of the happenings outside of the church “to expose how absolutely horrific and wicked it can be for these ‘trunk or treat’ events.” Gallagher then walked to a van that was parked near the entrance to show that sitting inside the back of the open van was a life-size skeleton, with an inflatable angry ghost attached to the side of the vehicle. He noted that the parking lot was still busy after the event was over

Saudi ties to US colleges come under mounting scrutiny

Saudi ties to US colleges come under mounting scrutiny

BOSTON (AP) — US colleges and universities have received more than $350 million from the Saudi government this decade, yet some are rethinking their arrangements in the wake of the killing of a journalist that has ignited a global uproar against the oil-rich nation.

The Associated Press analyzed federal data and found that at least $354 million from the Saudi government or institutions it controls has flowed to 37 American schools since 2011. Much of the money was provided through a scholarship program that covers tuition for Saudis studying in the US, but at least $62 million came through contracts or gifts from the kingdom’s nationally owned companies and research institutes, the AP found.

Do you get sick and tired of people trying to disprove the Bible on a daily basis? Is there anyway to show those that are desperate who mock and destroy the Bile on a daily basis just how wrong they are? The Bible is the word of God, but can we prove it somehow? ..YES YOU CAN, of course we can! Chuck Missler shows us how to prove that the Bible is true.

George Soros is a pariah in his native country of Hungary. So much so, the Hungarian government passed a law called the “Stop Soros” law making it illegal to aid Soros in his efforts to flood sovereign nations with undocumented illegal aliens. Yet the mainstream media is branding Soros as a harmless liberal donor who is being targeted by racists just in time for the midterms. While vilifying veteran American news anchor Lou Dobbs for seeking the truth.

RUMORS OF WAR: China military ordered to ‘prepare for war’ with west…

(The Scottish Sun) China’s President Xi Jinping has told his military commanders to “concentrate preparations for fighting a war” as Beijing ramps up fighting talk with the West. The communist ruler’s instructions come amid rising tensions over the future of the South China Sea and Taiwan and weeks after a Chinese warship tried to ram a US Navy destroyer. China Central Television presented a speech from President Xi – who has claimed the position in perpetuity –

when he met troops and generals on a tour of Guangzhou province. He told officers of the Southern Theatre Command: “It’s necessary to strengthen the mission … and concentrate preparations for fighting a war. “We need to take all complex situations into consideration and make emergency plans accordingly.” He also reportedly said the regional command was having to bear a “heavy military responsibility” as it was responsible for operations in the disputed South China Sea.

RUMORS OF WAR: China, Russia and Israel preparing for War!
Matthew 24:6 – And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.


Netanyahu Says Israel Preparing for War With Gaza
– Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a stark warning to the Palestinian Authority and to the international community during Sunday’s cabinet meeting in Jerusalem. The gist of his remarks was that Israel will not hesitate to launch a full-scale military operation against the Gaza Strip if the situation along the coastal enclave’s border continues to deteriorate. Over the past couple weeks, Gaza’s Hamas rulers have encouraged an intensification of violent disturbances along the Strip’s security fence. Unlike similar demonstrations earlier in the year, those taking part are now hurling grenades and firebombs at Israeli soldiers and openly trying to breach the border. READ MORE

Merkel To Quit As German Leader As Citizens Reject Globalism

Merkel To Quit As German Leader As Citizens Reject Globalism

October 29, 2018 Sean Adl-Tabatabai News, World 3

Angela Merkel quits as German leader

Globalist German chancellor Angela Merkel is stepping down as chair of Germany’s ruling CDU party after citizens rejected her unpopular open-border policies.

Following a disastrous performance by her party in the regional election in the German state of Hesse on Sunday, Merkel accepted that her time was up.

Giving up the party post will weaken her authority in Europe and reinforce the anti-globalist uprising happening across the continent.

Zerohedge.com reports: The Chancellor will reportedly retire after the end of her current term in 2021, which will give the CDU time to groom a successor. Though she remains one of Germany’s most popular politicians, her fellow Christian Democrats have long been demanding that she clear a path for her successor. After leaving German politics, Merkel has reportedly said she won’t consider any EU-wide posts.

That is the warning issued by a study from the University of Exeter and the University of California, Berkeley published Friday in the Journal of Agricultural Research. The study found that 13 percent of U.S. honeybee keepers are at risk of losing their colonies from Zika spraying.
