A Japanese study showed that producing a kilogram of beef leads to the emission of greenhouse gases with a global warming potential equivalent to 36.4 kilograms of carbon dioxide (CO2). It also releases fertilising compounds equivalent to 340 grams of sulphur dioxide and 59 grams of phosphate, and consumes 169 megajoules of energy (Animal Science Journal, DOI: /j x). In other words, a kilogram of beef is responsible for the equivalent of the amount of CO2 emitted by the average European car every 250 kilometres, and burns enough energy to light a 100-watt bulb for nearly 20 days (New Scientist magazine, 18 July 2007, page 15 ). The table indicates the CO2 production in kg CO2 equivalents per kg of meat depending on the animal: 1 kg of beef meat produces in the growing process, 34.6 kg CO2e, lamb 17.4, pork 6.35 and chicken 4.57 kg CO2e.

DocumentLibrary/EV02007/EV02007_4601_FRP.pdf Un-deploreables Conclusion: Since the deplorables advocate a political platform that is certain to return prosperity to America, when they are in control the population will be made able to consume more meat. are cleared to create new pastures, it is a major driver To avoid global warming we must rid the world of of deforestation, especially in Latin America where, deplorables, keep the world in poverty; thus, eat less for example, some 70 percent of former forests in the meat and dairy products reducing the greenhouse Amazon have been turned over to grazing. gasses dramatically. Deplorables Conclusion: Since a major portion of the world populations are un-deplorables, simply rid the world of them eliminating all poverty and the methane gas they generate. Then we can all produce and eat all of the beef we desire. Are cows the cause of global warming? A cow does on overage release between 70 and 120 kg of Methane per year. Methane is a greenhouse gas like carbon dioxide (CO2). But the negative effect on the climate of Methane is 23 times higher than the effect of CO2. Therefore the release of about 100 kg Methane per year for each cow is equivalent to about 2'300 kg CO2 per year. Let's compare this value of 2'300 kg CO2: The same amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) is generated by burning 1'000 liters of petrol. With a car using 8 liters of petrol per 100 km, you could drive 12'500 km per year (7'800 miles per year). World-wide, there are about 1.5 billion cows and bulls. All ruminants (animals which regurgitates food and re-chews it) on the world emit about two billion metric tons of CO2-equivalents per year. In addition, clearing of tropical forests and rain forests to get more grazing land and farm land is responsible for an extra 2.8 billion metric tons of CO2 emission per year! According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) agriculture is responsible for 18% of the total release of greenhouse gases world-wide (this is more than the whole transportation sector). Cattle-breeding is taking a major factor for these greenhouse gas emissions according to FAO. Says Henning Steinfeld, Chief of FAO's Livestock Information and Policy Branch and senior author of the report: "Livestock are one of the most significant contributors to today's most serious environmental problems. Urgent action is required to remedy the situation." Livestock now use 30 percent of the earth's entire land surface, mostly permanent pasture but also including 33 percent of the global arable land used to producing feed for livestock, the report notes.

After all, in their view, it is the deploreables that consume most of the beef and dairy products; and, for pity sake, it is high time that we stop it! We must Are cows to blame for global warming? Are cattle the true cause for climate change? We cannot deny that farming has a major impact on global warming. Since farming is basically serving the consumer's demand for food, we should look at our nourishment. With increased prosperity, people are consuming more meat and dairy products every year. Global meat production is projected to more than double from 229 million tonnes in 1999/2001 to 465 million tonnes in 2050, while milk output is set to climb from 580 to 1043 million tonnes. Methane Emissions Properties of Methane Chemical Formula: CH4 Lifetime in Atmosphere: 12 years Global Warming Potential (100-year): 25 Methane (CH4) is the second most prevalent greenhouse gas emitted in the United States from human activities. In 2014, CH4 accounted for about 11 percent of all U.S. greenhouse gas emissions from human activities. Methane is emitted by natural sources such as wetlands, as well as human activities such as leakage from natural gas systems and the raising of livestock. Natural processes in soil and chemical reactions in the atmosphere help remove CH4 from the atmosphere. Methane's lifetime in the atmosphere is much shorter than carbon dioxide (CO2), but CH4 is more efficient at trapping radiation than CO2. Pound for pound, the comparative impact of CH4 on climate change is more than 25 times greater than CO2 over a 100-year period.

2 THE SPOKESMEN 2 The Peoples Voice Thousands of Scientists Now Call Global Warming Crisis a Fraud Conservative Force fact, in 2014 a year that was touted as being the hottest ever in the Earth s history there were record amounts of ice reported in Antarctica, an increase in Arctic ice, and record snowfalls across the globe. On top of those inconvenient truths, the White House s assertion that 97 percent of scientists agree that global warming is real has been completely September 5, 2016 As we head into the 2016 presidential election, global warming alarmists continue to argue that government must do something about climate change, even if we aren t sure that there is anything we can do about it except spend billions of tax dollars on pie-in-the sky ideas to solve imaginary problems. Despite the fact that the climate has been changing throughout the earth s history, these control freaks fantasize about controlling that change by forcing others to live in poverty to fund their proposed solutions. This is in spite of the fact that no one is really sure what to do or if anything even needs to be done. According to a story in Natural News, Weather Channel founder John Coleman is now warning that the election could prove to be a tipping point in favor of people like Al Gore, who continue to amass vast fortunes based on the global warming scam. In a recent interview with Climate Depot, Coleman said: Al Gore may emerge from the shadows to declare victory in the global warming debate if Hillary Clinton moves into the White House. Yes, if that happens and the new climate regulations become the law of the land, they will be next to impossible to overturn for four to eight years. Climate change proponents remain undeterred in their mission, ignoring numerous recent scientific findings indicating that there has been no warming trend at all for nearly two decades. Al Gore s dire predictions of the melting of polar ice on a massive scale have proved to be completely false. In debunked. Several independentlyresearched examinations of the literature used to support the 97 percent statement found that the conclusions were cherry-picked and misleading. More objective surveys have revealed that there is a far greater diversity of opinion among scientists than the global warming crowd would like for you to believe. From the National Review: A 2008 survey by two German scientists, Dennis Bray and Hans von Storch, found that a significant number of scientists were skeptical of the ability of existing global climate models to accurately predict global temperatures, precipitation, sea-level changes, or extreme weather events even over a decade; they were far more skeptical as the time horizon increased. Other mainstream news sources besides the National Review have also been courageous enough to speak out against the global warming propaganda even the Wall Street Journal published an op-ed piece in 2015 challenging the Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) pseudoscience being promulgated by global warming proponents. And, of course, there are the more than 31,000 American scientists (to date) who have signed a petition challenging the climate change narrative and 9,029 of them hold PhDs in their respective fields. But hey, Al Gore and his cronies have also ignored that inconvenient truth, as well. What do you think, readers? Are you ready to start paying for Al Gore and his pals plans for funding ways to try to control the earth s climate to exactly the correct temperature that they think is perfect? Do they have a clue? A Nickle Soda Pop Jason Curtman Currently hosting a syndicated radio show heard over a hundred times a week across the country, The Jason Curtman Show. he can be reached at Let s Get Cookin About 4 years ago my personal circumstances dictated that I learn to cook; that is to say cook better than I did at the time. I knew two recipes. One was for Mac & Cheese the other one wasn t. Instead of learning to cook right away I let the community do it for me. Thanks to the good graces of Long John Silver s, Taco Bell, and all the other assorted fast food places in town I was able to get by. I must also thank a friend of mine, Rob, for not letting me go without a home cooked meal for a number of weeks. Rob is definitely a gourmet cook. He use to prepare meals for several famous people like Andy Griffith back in the day. He really knows how to use a skillet. I had to learn to cook. Thank goodness for the internet or I would still be filling up on Mac & Cheese with a side of peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Yep I was reliving my early school years. I learned how to cook a number of things. I started out simple with things like spaghetti and baked potatoes, then I moved on to more difficult things like pork steaks, hamburgers, pizza. My skills increased and I was able to cook a few more complicated things like a ham and eventually even an entire smoked turkey. One day my son brought home some smoked brisket and a few ribs that were unbelievable. I found out who made them and how they did it. Primarily, they used a smoker. Well I just had to have one so I went shopping. After about 3 hours of looking around, flipping coins and $400 later I finally had my smoker. was probably just a little bit too proud of myself, at least more than I should have. The best compliments I ever receive regarding my culinary skills always come from my 14 year old boy, the one who thinks it is Christmas every time he opens a box of chicken nuggets. When I prepare a meal, he asks for seconds and enthusiastically declares that I have outdone myself; well, that just makes my day. My mother s cooking made me popular with a few of my peers during my high school years. After inviting a few friends over for mom s fried chicken and peanut butter pie my friends cried that it was the best they had ever eaten. This was followed by pleas not to inform their own mothers. I posted on Facebook a picture of mom s peanut butter pie sometime back and the response from those old friends was quite complimentary. Mom was and is a great cook. So was her mother. Their cooking methods were always appetizing. I once visited an elderly lady in the Ozark hills of Missouri. While scrambling some eggs with a spatula, she paused to kill a fly on the wall with that same spatula. The fly dropped to the floor and she returned to scrambling the eggs with said spatula. I did not eat breakfast that day. I don t recall how I graciously got out of it but I know that I did. I will say that not every cook in the south has such poor manners when it comes to preparing meals, yet I am reminded of a quote from a man who sold a popular Bar-B-Q from a roadside stand in the deep southeast, Everyone knows you can t make a good Bar-B-Q and still follow the health code! I m sure that he said this in jest. I hope he did anyway.

3 THE SPOKESMEN 3 The Peoples Voice HOORAY! Keep the oink in Canada at all costs! Pork On YourFork Well Said Mayor! Dorval, Quebec. PUT SOME PORK ON YOUR FORK The MAYOR OF DORVAL REFUSES TO REMOVE PORK FROM SCHOOL CAFETERIA MENU AND EXPLAINS WHY: Muslim parents demanded the abolition of pork in all the school canteens of a Montreal suburb. The mayor of the Montreal suburb of Dorval has refused, and the town clerk sent a note to all parents to explain why. "Muslims must understand that they have to adapt to Canada and Quebec, its customs, its traditions, and its way of life, because that's where they chose to immigrate. "Muslims must understand that they have to integrate and learn to live in Quebec. "They must understand that it is for them to change their lifestyle, not the Canadians who, so generously, welcomed them. "Muslims must understand that Canadians are neither racist nor xenophobic. Canada accepted many immigrants before Muslims showed up (whereas the reverse is not true, in that Muslim states do not accept non-muslim immigrants)." "Just like other nations, Canadians are not willing to give up their identity or their culture.; and, if Canada is a land of welcome, it s not the Mayor of Dorval who welcomes foreigners, but the Canadian-Quebecois people as a whole. "They must also must understand that in Canada ( Quebec ) with its Judeo-Christian roots, Christmas trees, churches and religious festivals, religion must remain in the private domain." The municipality of Dorval was right to refuse any concessions to Islam and Sharia. "For Muslims who disagree with secularism and do not feel comfortable in Canada, there are 57 beautiful Muslim countries in the world, most of them under-populated and ready to receive them with open halal arms in accordance with Sharia. "If you left your country for Canada, and not for other Muslim countries, it is because you have considered that life is better in Canada than elsewhere. We will not let you drag Canada down to the level of those 57 countries. "Ask yourself this question - just once: "Why is it better here in Canada than where you came from?" "A canteen with pork on the menu is part of the answer." If you came to Canada with the idea that you will displace us with your prolific propagation and eventually take over the country, you should pack up and go back to the country you came from. We have no room here for you and your ideology. If you feel the same, this. If not, prepare to be displaced. Your Everyday Freedom is Not Free, Your Military Paid For It! VISION FOR TODAY Dr. Terry Marquardt 903 New York Ave Alamogordo, NM (575) It is very important for seniors to get frequent health check ups, which enable them to nip emerging health problems in the bud, or control them before they become critical. Senior eye care is an important component of an older persons health plan... The figures say that about 20 percent of Americans over the age of 65 years have some kind of eye problem, which are usually likely to increase with age. Problems relating to senior eye health and care range from low vision to blindness causing eye disease. Common eye care concerns for older people are cataracts, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy. Many of these conditions are debilitating, and emphasize the importance of preventive eye care, which in turn plays a crucial role in correcting, stalling, or preventing serious senior eye concerns altogether. The onset of most vision problems happen with telltale warning signs. If you are 60 years or older, and experience such symptoms, you should immediately visit your physician or optometrist. Some of them are: Increasing dryness or tearing A drooping eyelid A film over the colored portion of the eye or fading of the colored part of your eye. Diminished peripheral vision If one begins to see spots or shapes that float in one s field of vision Blurred or distorted vision If one fails to tear or has blocked eye ducts Reduced ability to discern colors, especially shades of blue, beige and brown If one develops an eye infection, even a mild one, or suffers swelling around the eyes If the eyes are troubled by light or glare, and aren t able to adjust to it Now to address the problem of inconvenience.

His/her office should be easily accessible, and convenient parking would be an added benefit. Ideally, the office should be equipped with handicapped facilities and equipment. The waiting areas should be comfortable and easy to navigate. Helpful and friendly staff would definitely make you more willing to visit, as would a simple registration and check-in process. It is also very important to pick an optometrist who is patient, kind, understanding, and a good listener. Once you decide to visit an optometrist, there are a few points you must keep in mind to get the best treatment. 1. The first is to form a plan with your eye care provider 2. Schedule your appointments and medical eye exams (those that include dilatation of your pupils). 3. Every time you experience any problem, write it down, so you will have a list of symptoms ready when you visit your doctor, which ensures that you don t forget any, and your doctor is able to correctly diagnose your condition. 4. It is a good practice to ask your provider to prescribe nutritional supplements that can improve eye health. 5. Clarify that they won t interfere with any other medication you may be taking. Senior eye care is very important in preventing and managing eye problems that develop with age. According to the American Association of Optometrists, if you are less than 70 years of age, you should get your eyes checked at least every two years, and annually thereafter. However, those who suffer from diabetes or other eye illnesses, must have frequent check ups. Gather With The Gathering Place At 7:00 P.M.

4 THE SPOKESMEN 4 The Peoples Voice Caught in the Cookie Jar Americans are living in an evil, supernaturally induced slumber. We occasionally roll over and blink a little, but mostly America is asleep. We have been lulled into our coma by directed education and a deliberate dumbing down of the people. When I was a child about the first grade (a long time ago), my dad served on the School Board of our little community. I remember clearly a discussion about school consolidation. Up till that time many Coloradoans were taught mostly in small country school houses unless you happened to live in town where we had bigger buildings and multiple grades. The argument rested on economy. It was simply cheaper and better to bus all the rural kids to town and close the country schools. After much discussion, busses were purchased, teachers were either moved to town or fired and the dumbing-down of our schools kicked into high gear. Prior to my time we had readin, ritin and rithmetic but my first grade reading lessons were quickly changed to Jane threw the ball to Dick and Dick threw the ball to Jane. Really challenging and VERY educational! Memory work started saying byebye, though we were still taught the multiplication table and phonics (some of you won t understand what those words mean). It wasn t too long till new math came along and now communist (COMMON) core takes 15 minutes to calculate the sum of six plus nine. Busy drones make more honey than smart ones. Long story short the de-education of American children got off to a slow start but now is moving like a missile in how not to think. But it didn t start with school consolidation, it can actually be traced back to the Garden when the serpent intellectually seduced the woman and convinced her it was not just OK, but actually desirable to eat the fruit that God told her and Adam to leave alone. Since then, things have gone straight down hill and 21st Century de-education is just one of the final bricks in the top row of the prison wall being built around us. Why would educators want to deemphasize real learning? The same reason the United States invaded the Middle-East. If you break up large dictatorships into smaller ones they are more easily controlled. If you teach children it is a great chore to add numbers together they are more easily controlled and quickly say Yes Ma am. Why control countries or people? So they will become obedient and submissive and work for very low wages without complaint so the Masters can get richer and richer. The LOVE OF MONEY is the root of all evil. (1 Tim 6:10) Meanwhile back at the Bilderberg Ranch, we are fed an ever-increasing diet of alluring technology where dumb people carry smart phones around and pay dearly for them. Looking at the new TVs recently one retailer had a 75 flat screen for $1995 and right above it they had a smart 75 flat screen for $3995. You have to pay for the privilege of being suckered. It takes real brains to invite a spy into your house where you pay $4,000 to get him and then have to furnish the electricity to keep him alive. And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they PLANTED, THEY BUILDED; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, AND DESTROYED THEM ALL. 30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. (Lu 17:26-30) America has become Sodom on the Atlantic and Pacific. As such, we are ripe, nay overdue for Judgment by The Almighty. We have spit in the face of God and He is tired of wiping it away. He is long-suffering but that doesn t mean He will wink at our sin forever. He judged Israel time and time again and essentially destroyed them more than once. America has been mocking God for too long and Judgment has already begun. Our churches have become pagan establishments with music that comes from the devil and preaching that comes from Facebook and Twitter. Sin is now called mistakes and repentance means saying, Sorry God, didn t mean for you to see my hand in the cookie jar. Historic Sands Theater and KVBA-TV WISH YOU A HAPPY THANKSGIVING Happy Thanksgiving from all of us to all of you. At Vision Broadcasting and the Historic Sands Theatre we have a great line up for the holidays. Holidays are for families to get together and enjoy each other s company. Movies on the big screen are a big part of the fun and Mike Elliott, Sands Manager, is doing a great job. He has scheduled some great holiday movies the entire family will enjoy. You ll see some classic favorites like It s a Wonderful Life, White Christmas and even some current day traditions that you will want to see on the big screen. So in keeping with traditions, what are you thankful for? Let s see...thank you Lord for who you are! You are Lord and God, Savior of the world but in particular you are my Lord and Savior. It was 1971, I was in the military and I was a drug user. On this particular night, I was in El Paso TX with a friend trying to buy an ounce of speed. I had the money, my friend was my tester since I was mainly one that snorted the speed and he was a main line drug user. He knew the product and could determine the quality. The purchase was made but then the unthinkable happened, I was pulled over for not using my turn signal. We were toast! The police searched the car and of course they found a bag of white power. I can say this with all truthfulness; when those cell doors closed my entire world changed. I have never experienced such loneliness, a helplessness and rejection that literally took my breath away. My whole life was over, I would be kicked out of the military and who knew what else. But God, Yes But God. So there I am praying the only prayers I Knew, Hail Mary and Our Father and Go to page 11 - Sands Theatre THE BIG LIE OF THE COMMUNISTS/SOCIALISTS/PROGRESSIVES The Communists/Socialists/ Progressives/Marxists. with their many names, all have a common dislike of capitalism and wage disparity, or the 1% of any group. They feel no one should have so much more wealth than the average worker. That is the principal precept of socialists all the way back to the beginning of Karl Marx and his assault on the wealthy of the industrial world. His most important success in rallying the workers against everyone that had position, property, or money was in Russia and China. The Russian revolution took over the countries around Russia; and, eventually Russia had tremendous power around the world. Marxists had some success in Latin America by talking many clergy into partnering with them in support of all the poor people who had little opportunity with their corrupt governments to reach middle class status as we know it in the U.S. Mostly we see dictators deposed, Marxism installed and the nation involved eventually has reduced output of common goods. The unrest and uncertainty in their country caused suspicion in other nations among people who had money to spend on vacations, further isolating them. Countries that offered lower class workers a better life through government supplied entitlements, eventually went downhill economically beyond the point they could recover from. They couldn t achieve their prior level of living standards because no leader would bite the bullet and cut some programs that were hindering progress. Too many people had learned to work the system. Argentina was once an economic powerhouse in the world, elected a socialist president, and now has defaulted on loans and can t seem to right itself. Venezuela has great petroleum resources and was once on a good path for its citizens, when a candidate was elected president and confessed to be a communist. There were riots and unrest against him, but Hugo Chavez was able to keep his position by offering entitlements that gained him supporters. Now it is the home of long lines and food shortages. Socialists in the U.S. claim there are some superior programs in Cuba. Michael Moore has written a book or two that leftists buy, wrote in one that he d gone to Cuba and found there was superior health care there. He wanted to help Obama s ACA all he could. A friend who was raised in Cuba visited her father and other relatives there about the time of Moore s book and she was livid over his outright lies. She told us how her father needed an operation for a dangerous hernia that had been delayed three times for several reasons, reasons that wouldn t happen here. When he got another appointment for his surgery just before she left Cuba for Florida, he was told he had to bring his own sheets and fan. There was no air-conditioning and a shortage of sheets at the hospital. Also, on the day they were to fly out of Cuba, their flight was delayed over and over for fourteen hours and there was no AC in the airport. They had to wait it out in the tropical heat of Cuba. There was no hot water in the restrooms and there was no toilet tissue in the airport restrooms either. She said the simple matter of getting around in town was complicated by the number of horses and bicycles wandering all over the streets and on rural roads it was even worse because the highways needed repair and full of horse riders and bicycles. Socialism in the U.S. is propped up by so many lies it s hard to find a starting point. Obama s ACA is a disaster that Democrats still protect using strange figures and propaganda points. The socialist healthcare in most other countries is far behind our own, especially things like wait times for many procedures. Democrats insist health care is improving with Obamacare. The fact that Obamacare has impacted our nation s healthcare, business community and exacts more taxes every year can t get any traction with any Democrat legislator or the enormous mainstream media. Our income tax, the #2 plank of the communist manifesto, is intrusive and anti-business, but we can t rid our nation of this cause of off-shore banking and much of the out-sourcing of our companies. Despite the unbelievable drain on our economy with its outsized budget and the equally expensive drain of complying with the income tax, there are so many lobbyists and others who have learned to game that system and rely on it for their wealth, we can t seem to scrap the income tax in favor of a far superior tax system. Global warming was begun by a communist who wanted to hobble the U.S. and impact our energy production. Now it s a top U.N. issue which is dominated by socialists, who have convinced millions of people worldwide that the oceans are rising due to melting ice and most of the low-lying areas of the world are at risk of being submerged and lost to human habitation. Thirty years ago we were told we have only 20 years to stop the warming and melting. But the oceans are in the same place they ve always been despite the fear-mongering. Our president even says the CO2 problem is our most important security issue. When statists raise taxes on the rich, the money doesn t go to the poor. They claim they have to advance a regulation to keep big business from hurting the middle class. Actually It s to pay for another appointed bureaucracy that expands government and further limits our ability to run a business with red tape etc. Still, many voters think the left is helping the little man when in reality they re impacting the businesses that hire the poor man where he could someday build a career. These liars and fools have to be defeated. Once entrenched, they fight with desperation and lies to remain in power. We re seeing this in our current election. - Don Omey Have you heard of the honor flight for veterans? It s an amazing program that pays for a veteran to fly to D.C. to tour all the war memorials. Costs you nothing due to many people working together to donate services for the benefit of the veteran. I ll go Sept. 30 and return Oct. 2 which is my birthday when I ll be 85.

The following is a narrative taken from a 2008 Sunday morning televised "Meet The Press'.From Sunday's 07 Sept :48:04 EST, Televised "Meet the Press" THE THEN Senator Obama was asked about his stance on the American Flag. General Bill Gann' USAF (ret.) asked Obama to explain WHY he doesn't follow protocol when the National Anthem is played. The General stated to Obama that according to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec During rendition of the national anthem, when the flag is displayed, all present (except those in uniform) are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Or, at the very least, "Stand and Face It". Senator Obama replied : "As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as taking sides." "There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression..." "The anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all that sort of thing." Obama continued: "The National Anthem should be 'swapped' for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song 'I'd Like To Teach the World To Sing'. If that were our anthem, then, I might salute it. In my opinion, we should consider reinventing our National Anthem as well as 'redesign' our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love. It's my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we, as a Nation of warring people, conduct ourselves like the nations of Islam, where peace prevails perhaps a state or period of mutual accord could exist between our governments..." When I Become President, I will seek a pact of agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts.we as a Nation, have placed upon the nations of Islam, an unfair injustice which is WHY my wife disrespects the Flag and she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in thepast". "Of course now,i have found myself about to become The President of the United States and I have put my hatred aside.i will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation,and offer the people a new path. My wife and I look forward to becoming our Country's First black Family.Indeed, CHANGE is about tooverwhelm the United States of America." Yes, you read it right. Dale Lindsborg, Washington Post EVERYONE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA NEEDS TO READ THIS, SO KEEP IT GOING!! SAVE AMERICA BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE! THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INTEGRITY AND DISHONESTY... Semper Fidelis Phillip Jennings is an investment banker and entrepreneur, former Marine Corps Captain who flew missions in Vietnam and, after leaving the Marine Corps, flew for Air America in Laos. He won the Pirate s Alley Faulkner Society short fiction award in He has a degree in business administration and is the CEO of Mayfair Capital Partners. He is the author of two novels and one non-fiction book. He authored the following article which appeared in the May 26, 2016 edition of USA Today. It is short and should be required reading for everyone. Secretary without honor. When I hear people say Clinton s don't matter, I remember a young Marine captain who owned up to his career-ruining mistake. Apologists for Hillary Clinton s alleged criminal mishandling of classified documents say that it doesn t matter, that she really did nothing wrong, or nothing significant. But the real question is not so much what she did as how she has responded to being found out. Once during the mid-1960s when I was on active duty in the Marine Corps, I was the air liaison officer for a battalion of Marines aboard 11 ships in the Mediterranean. As the air officer and a senior captain, I had a rotating responsibility for the nuclear code book, kept in the safe in the operations room of the God s purpose will be fulfilled! Rather than a book of answers or a systematic theology, the Bible is a book full of mysteries and intriguing clues: God is three yet one; Christ Jesus is completely God and at the very same time completely human; and God is raising up leaders while on election day, voters in democracies can freely electing officials. The prophet Daniel wrote that God controls the course of world events; he removes kings and sets up other kings (2:21). Curiously, this was written while the Jewish people were under Babylonian captivity. And the apostle Paul wrote Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God (Romans 13:1). He continues that authorities are God s servant[s] for your good and ministers of God (Romans 13:4, 6). Mysteriously, he wrote that passage while under Roman occupation with deranged dictator, Nero, in authority. So, are God s purposes accomplished in human election? I have a degree in theology and so, with complete confidence, I can emphatically state, It s a mystery! I do, however, know this: God has a record of working through pagan rulers Pharaoh s heart was influenced by God to do His will. For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I might show my power in you, and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth' (Romans 9:17). Cyrus the Great, ruled the four corners of the World and followed Nebuchadnezzar II, who had destroyed Jerusalem and taken the Israelites captive into Babylon. God declares I will raise up Cyrus in my righteousness: I will make all his ways straight. He will rebuild my city and set my exiles free, but not for a price or reward, says Yahweh Almighty (Isaiah 45:13). And so, Cyrus also returned the gold and silver that Nebuchadnezzar II had plundered from the Temple. (Ezra 6:3-5) And in the last century, when the creation of the nation of Israel was being championed by President Harry Truman, he boasted I am your Cyrus. Artaxerxes continued Cyrus favorable treatment of the Jewish people, assigning the prophet Ezra the oversight of the Jewish resettlement in Jerusalem in 457 B.C. In the king s twentieth year, he authorized Nehemiah to rebuild Jerusalem s walls after learning they were is disrepair and even ordered supplies be lead amphibious squadron command ship. I shared that duty with another captain, a squared away young man, liked by all he commanded and the son of a very high-ranking Marine. On the day our ships were leaving the Mediterranean, we met the new amphibious squadron near Gibraltar and made preparations to transfer security codes and other sensitive material to the incoming Marine battalion. The young captain was on duty and went to the operations office to pick up the code book. He was alone in the office. He removed the code book and placed it on the desk while closing the safe. In a rushed moment, he stepped across the passageway to retrieve something he needed from his quarters. Seconds later, he stepped back into the operations office and found the operations sergeant having just entered, looking down at the code book. Against all regulations, the code book had been out of the safe and unattended. It mattered not that it was unattended for only seconds, that the ship was 5 miles at sea, or that it was certain no one unauthorized had seen the code. The captain could have explained this to the operations sergeant. He could have told the sergeant that he would take care of it. He could have hinted that his high-ranking dad could smooth it over. But the Marine Corps values are honor, courage and commitment. Honor is the bedrock of our character. The young captain could not ask the sergeant to betray his duty to report the infraction, no matter how small. Instead, the captain simply said, Let s go see the colonel. That captain had wanted to be a Marine officer all of his life. It was the only career he ever wanted. provided. Alexander the Great conquered much of the known world in BC. As a result, Greek was a universal trade language at the birth of Christianity. And the Roman s world conquest provided major highways that connected the world centers of power. So, when we read in Acts 8 that persecution caused early Christians to flee, the Roman infrastructure allowed them to take the gospel to the ends of the earth on well-built roads. When the written gospel needed to be proclaimed, the universal Greek language provided the perfect medium. And if persecution had not broken out in Jerusalem, the early Christians may have been content to stay in the holy city, ignoring Christ s command to go into all the world. God has a record of working good out of evil But God s workings are often a mystery to his children. It s hard to imagine Adolph Hitler, who was responsible for over 12 million deaths, as being sent for the world s good. Or, worse, that Mao Ze-Dong, who ordered the death of as many as 78 million of his own people, was God s servant. One of the clues to this mystery may be Romans 8:28: And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. Does God personally put specific political leaders in places of authority? I have no clue! Does God work those leaders benevolent and brutal actions for His ultimate purpose? Absolutely! In conclusion 1. Ask God for discernment to choose candidates who best although. probably imperfectly reflect God s principles and values. Then, get out and vote for those candidates. 2. Be assured, that whoever is elected, God s purposes will be accomplished. Not necessarily our will. Not necessarily our good. But the sovereign God s ultimate plan and eternal good will be accomplished. 3. And, as Paul urged the early church under the rule of Nero First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way (1 Timothy 2:1-2). Copyright 2012 James N. Watkins When he reported the incident to the colonel, he knew he was jeopardizing his life s dream. But he did it. The results went by the book. The amphibious squadron stood down. Military couriers flew in from NATO. The codes were changed all over Europe. The battalion was a day late in leaving the Mediterranean. The captain, Leonard F. Chapman III, received a letter of reprimand, damaging his career. He stayed in the corps and died in a tragic accident aboard another ship. [For those interested, Captain Chapman's father was Gen. Leonard F. Chapman Jr., the former Commandant of the Marine Corps.] I saw some heroic acts in combat in Vietnam, things that made me proud to be an American and a Marine. But that young captain stood for what makes our corps and our country great. Clinton is the antithesis of that young captain, someone with no honor, little courage and commitment only to her endless ambition. This has nothing to do with gender, party affiliation, ideology or policy. It is a question of character not just hers, but ours. Electing Clinton would mean abandoning holding people accountable for grievous errors of integrity and responsibility. What we already know about her security infractions should disqualify her for any government position that deals in information critical to mission success, domestic or foreign. But beyond that, her responses to being found out dismissing its importance, claiming ignorance, blaming others indict her beyond anything the investigation can reveal. Those elements reveal her character. And the saddest thing is that so many in America seem not to care.

7 THE SPOKESMEN 7 The Peoples Voice Harry Reid Disgraces Himself With Parting Speech September 30, 2016 Breaking News Ex Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev) and Destroyer of Congress as we knew it By far the most detrimental legislator in the history of the USA Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev) is set for retirement, but he couldn t resist unleashing a barrage of unwarranted attacks on his Republican colleagues before lurching back to his home state. Reid, who has been one of the most divisive politicians on Capitol Hill for the last decade, used the final day of the congressional term to lash out at the GOP and their 2016 presidential nominee. I feel compelled to comment on how Republicans have treated the president of the United States during the last eight years, Reid said Thursday. History will look back and note the Republicans in Congress treated President Obama with unprecedented disrespect. Well, you get the respect you give (don t you Harry?). Reid said that Senate Republicans have not done the basic work of government, which, in Reid s twisted mind, means going along with whatever Barack Obama dreams up in the Oval Office. They have not stood by their commitments to restore regular order or to pass a budget, he said. Republicans have spent their time doing everything in their power to discredit President Obama and empower Donald Trump. That s a laugh. Republicans in Congress are doing everything possible to empower Trump? If that jab is limited to Mitch McConnell s refusal to hold confirmation hearings on a Supreme Court nominee, we can forgive this otherwise-ridiculous comment, but Reid didn t specify. In fact, as he continued, it became clear that he has a very distorted view of how the GOP establishment has treated their presidential nominee.

Our work is guaranteed If it accomplishes what you desire it to do it is absolutely free, provided you can sucker all of your friends into allowing us to serve their similar needs. Hit men available for the impossible to win cases No person is too needy to approach for cash. After all, if they are poor they are on the Government dole; and, all of our attorneys are familiar with the ways to get the dole increased so they will have more to pay us with. Our Motto Is: The only thing Republicans have done this year was to prove that they are the party of Trump, he said. They are the party of Trump. They would have us believe that Trump just fell out of the sky and somehow mysteriously became the nominee of the party, but that s not the way it is. First of all, Reid needs some help when it comes to keeping his tenses straight. He s all over the place with was and is. Maybe he can consult an elementary English book in his retirement. Second, Reid was all too happy to use the filibuster when Democrats were in control of the Senate, so his criticism of Republicans reeks of hypocrisy. Third, he s out of his gourd if he thinks congressional Republicans paved the way for Donald Trump. If anything, it was their inability to stand on principle and block the worst of Obama s agenda that gave rise to Trump. Trump isn t the ultimate manifestation of the Republican Party; he s a message from Republican voters to the party elite: You had your chance, now we re doing this. He is their Frankenstein monster, Reid said. No, sir. He s OUR Frankenstein monster. And much like the one in the movie, he s unjustifiably demonized and willfully misunderstood by the village idiots on Capitol Hill, including both Republicans and Democrats. They re coming after him with their torches and pitchforks, blithely unaware that in attacking him, they are attacking us. And if they keep it up, they may be joining Harry Reid in the world of the unemployed very soon. SATAN IS WEEPING AT HIS DEPARTURE Editors Comments: Without a doubt Harry Reid has been the most destructive force ever to hit the United States Government. He almost single handily blocked every legitimate piece of legislation voted on by Congress, refusing to allow a single vital bill to reach the Presidents desk. Most certainly Reid, Pulosi, & Clinton will go down in history as those responsible for turning America into a 3rd world country. If America survives, free of Globalism, it will be only by the hand of God; and then, it will never be the same because it is now devoid of the morality and character that made it great!

Please take time to read this and pay particular attention to "A Little Gun History" about half way down staggering numbers! Why Carry a Gun? My old Grandpa said to me, 'Son, there comes a time in every man's life when he stops bustin' knuckles and starts bustin' caps and usually it's when he becomes too old to take a whoopin'.' I don't carry a gun to kill people; I carry a gun to keep from being killed. I don't carry a gun because I'm evil; I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the World. I don t carry a gun because I hate the government; I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government. I don't carry a gun because I'm angry; I carry a gun so that I don't have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared. I don't carry a gun because I want to shoot someone; I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon. I don't carry a gun to make me feel like a man; I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love. I don't carry a gun because I feel inadequate; I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate. I don't carry a gun because I love it; I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me. Police protection is an oxymoron: Free citizens must protect themselves because police do not protect you from crime; they just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess. A LITTLE GUN HISTORY In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control: From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. In 1911, Turkey established gun control: From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Germany established gun control in 1938: From 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated. China established gun control in 1935: From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Guatemala established gun control in 1964: From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Uganda established gun control in 1970: From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Cambodia established gun control in 1956: From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. 56 million defenseless people were rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control. You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens. With guns, we are 'citizens'; without them, we are 'subjects'. During WW II, the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED! Gun owners in the USA are the largest armed force in the World! The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield and skill is more important than either.

8 THE SPOKESMEN 8 T h e P e o p l e s V o i c e TRUTH by Wes Bush The apotle, Paul says it with so much more anointing than I can; so please allow me to use his expression of the Gospel in my column this time. 1 Corinthians 13 KJV 1Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 2And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. 3And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. 4Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 5Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 6Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 7Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. 8Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. 9For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. 10But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. 11When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. 13And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. Philippians 2 (KJV) 1 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, 2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. 3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. 4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. 5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. 12 Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings: 15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; When the way gets tough, the tough get going. 2 Corinthians 6(KJV) 1 We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain. 2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.) 3 Giving no offence in anything, that the ministry be not blamed: 4 But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses, 5 In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings; 6 By pureness, by knowledge, by long suffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned, 7 By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, 8 By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true; 9 As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed; 10 As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things. 14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. Phillipians 1 (KJV) 1 I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, 6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: 9 And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; 10 That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ. 11 Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God. Think your body is yours to do with as you please? Lifescope says, Think again! Jesus said, "If your eye is pure, there will be sunshine in your soul. But if your eye is clouded with evil thoughts and desires, you are in deep spiritual darkness. And oh, how deep that darkness can be!" For if the gospel we preach is hidden, it is hidden only to those who are being lost. They do not believe because their minds have been kept in the dark by the evil god of this world. He keeps them from seeing the light shining on them, the light that comes from the Good News about the glory of Christ, Who is the exact likeness of God. Lord, I know that a person's life doesn't really belong to him. No one can control his own life. Lord, correct me, but be fair. Don't punish me in anger. If You do, You will destroy me. Pour out Your anger on other nations. They do not know You. They do not pray to You. Those nations have destroyed Jacob's family. They have eaten him up. They destroyed his homeland. Everyone dies because all of us are related to Adam, being members of his sinful race, and wherever there is sin, death results. But all who are related to Christ will rise again.

(575) Bible Studies Welcome Home Christian Fellowship er Meetings 1601 Hawaii Ave Christian Counseling Sunday Worship Alamogordo, NM Ministy Opportunity Trump Meets With Evangelical Leaders This was a fascinating day in New York City as over 1000 Christian leaders from all over the U.S. gathered to ask Donald Trump tough specific questions about his policy and intentions should he be elected POTUS. The event organizers originally requested Dallas, Texas as a middleof-the-nation location to hold a getsome-private-time with Trump event, hoping to attract some national Christian leaders. But the only opening on Trump s schedule was in NYC for 30 minutes, 30 days out. So they took it. A screening committee, scouring the Internet, sent out invitations to about 1000 Christian leaders. Because the high expense of flying into and staying in NYC, and the date less than 30 days away, they reserved a room for only 100 people at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square. Each person who accepted the invitation then had to be vetted, and ultimately ok ed by the Secret Service. Once cleared, you were notified by phone. I got two sets of phone questions about my work with Compass and when finally approved, had 10 days to make plans.(i m sure I was at the end of the list!!) But despite receiving the late notices, the response to attend was offthe-charts. Almost everyone they invited accepted the invitation. And some who were left off the original list apparently lobbied for inclusion. Ultimately there were over 1000 who hastily changed their schedules to attend. The security was tight for the 7 AM opening for registrants. I stood in long lines for an hour, passing through three check points before finally getting through Secret Service security. Once I finally got to my seat at my table I was astonished to be sitting next to a sharp-as-a tack Auburn grad who is married to another Auburn grad and lives in Vestavia, Alabama where I grew up. She s a registered lobbyist who worked for George Bush (W) when she first got out of Auburn. War Eagle to that one! Also at my table was a Congressional candidate from North Carolina, a Christian TV station owner from Florida and the Chairman of the Board of the Washington Times. There were about four past Steeling conference speakers in the room, that I noticed. Probably more I didn t see. After opening remarks by the conference organizers, Jerry Falwell Jr. spoke, then Franklin Graham. Both attested to the authenticity of Donald Trump. George Barna, the polling guy, spoke. Using several charts he showed that Trump has a genuine path to victory if Christians vote. But in the last Presidential election, some 40 million evangelicals stayed home and that was literally the difference in the election. Then Ben Carson spoke for about 20 minutes. His easy and soft-spoken style easily warmed the crowd. He referred to the fact that Trump had a bad three weeks, and Clinton had a good three weeks and yet the race is still close, virtually tied. But his main point was that Trump is a proven leader. He s certainly not a politician who s always worried about offending someone. And that s what we need, a leader, not a politician. Next came Huckabee, who moderated the discussion between the crowd and Trump. Before introducing Trump, he made the point that we re not voting on a pastor or a Pope, but rather a leader. A leader who is quite different from the past in order to change things from the status quo. So the day was set that this was not about Trump s Christian knowledge or virtues, but rather where Trump wants to take the country. And where we re headed if Trump is not elected. The biggest concern centered around the Supreme Court. The next President will appoint anywhere from one to five members. The Second Amendment, freedom of religion, prayer in public places, etc.will likely be settled by the next President s appointees. When Donald Trump was introduced, he didn t speak from the podium but rather sat next to Huckabee on the stage fielding questions from the crowd for about 90 minutes. So much for the 30 minutes originally allotted there was no press allowed inside, so it was just Trump and the Christian leaders talking back and forth. The really big Christian leader names got to directly ask Trump questions from the floor i.e. people like James Dobson, Ralph Reed, Tony Perkins, etc. Most felt religious liberty was at stake with this election, saying that if the policies Obama has set in place are allowed to continue, Christians will eventually have no freedom to worship. Harassment of Christian organizations would continue. Through it all, Trump answered each of their questions with solid answers, both acknowledging the problem cited and how he would take care of the problem. He seemed to be genuinely concerned about changing the direction of the nation. He addressed many subjects including the Supreme Court, national defense, border problems, Christian persecution, his pro-life stance, Israel, healthcare, education. and energy. I would say that most of those who attended who were not sure if they would vote for him, left convinced of how much is at stake in this election if Trump is not elected. After Trump left, to a standing ovation, more questions were taken from the audience addressed to a panel of Christian leaders. Things like the weakening of the military, Christian business rights, etc. were discussed at length. I have to say, we pretty much all came away thinking that if Clinton, or any Democrat, is elected, the path this Go to page 10 - Evangelical Vote

Think of the Spokesmen as your newspaper and help us make the best presentation possible to your newspaper s readers. Advertising content in articles may include contact information only The combat code of the U.S. Military is that we don't abandon our dead or wounded on the battlefield. In U.S. Air Force lingo, fighter pilots don't run off and leave their wingmen. If one of our own is shot down, still alive and not yet in enemy captivity, we will either come to get him or die trying. Among America s fighting forces, the calm, sure knowledge that such an irrevocable bond exists is priceless. Along with individual faith and personal grit, it is a sacred trust that has often sustained hope in the face of terribly long odds. The disgraceful abandonment of our Ambassador and those brave ex-seals who fought to their deaths to save others in that compound is nothing short of derelictionof-duty. Additionally, the patently absurd coverup scenario that was fabricated in the aftermath was an outright lie in an attempt to shield the President and the Secretary of State from responsibility. It has been over three years since the attack on our compound in Benghazi. The White House strategy, with the aid of a "lap dog" press has been to run out the clock before the truth is forthcoming. The testimonies of the three "whistle blowers" have reopened the subject and hopefully will lead to exposure and disgrace of those responsible for this embarrassing debacle. It would appear that the most recent firewall which the Administration is counting on is the contention "that there were simply no military assets that could be brought to bear in time to make a difference" mainly due to the unavailability of tanker support for fighter aircraft. This is simply BS, regardless how many supposed "experts" the Administration trot out to make such an assertion. The bottom line is that even if the closest asset capable of response was half-way around the world, you don't just sit on your penguin ass and do nothing. The fact is that the closest asset was not half-way around the world, but as near as Aviano Air Base, Italy where two squadrons of F-16Cs are based. CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING Consider the following scenario (all WHAT HAS OBAMA DONE? The following is a narrative taken from a 2008 Sunday morning televised "Meet The Press'.From Sunday's 07 Sept :48:04 EST, Televised "Meet the Press" THE THEN Senator Obama was asked about his stance on the American Flag. General Bill Gann' USAF (ret.) asked Obama to explain WHY he doesn't follow protocol when the National Anthem is played. Citing The United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec During rendition of the national anthem, when the flag is displayed, all present (except those in uniform) are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Or, at the very least, "Stand and Face It". Senator Obama replied, "As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as taking sides. There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression...the anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all that sort of thing." Obama continued: "The National Anthem should be 'swapped' for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song 'I'd Like To Teach the World To Sing'. If that were our anthem, then, I might salute it. In my opinion, we should consider reinventing our National Anthem Betrayal in Benghazi Phil Hands Handley, Colonel, USAF (Ret.) Phil Hands Handily is credited with the highest speed air-to-air gun kill in the history of aerial combat. He flew operationally for all but 11 months of a 26-year career, in aircraft such as the F-86 Sabre, F-15 Eagle, and the C-130A Hercules. Additionally, he flew 275 combat missions during two tours in Southeast Asia in the F-4D and F-4E. His awards include 21 Air Medals, three Distinguished Flying Crosses, and the Silver Star. Here is what Col. Handley wrote in response to Panetta and Dempsey s claims there was no time to send help to Benghazi. times Benghazi local): 1. At 9:40 PM Hicks in Tripoli receives a call from Ambassador Stevens informing him "Greg, we are under attack!" (his last words), Hicks immediately notifies all agencies and prepares for the immediate initiation of an existing Emergency Response Plan." 2. At AFRICON, General Carter Ham attempts to mount a rescue effort, but is told to "stand down". 3. By 10:30 PM an unarmed drone is overhead the compound and streaming live feed to various "Command and Control Agencies" so everyone watching that feed knew damn well what was going on. 4. At 11:30 PM Doherty and five others leave Tripoli, arriving in Benghazi at 1:30 AM on Wednesday morning, where they hold off the attacking mob from the roof of the compound until they are killed by a direct mortar hit at 4:00 AM. 5. At 10:00 PM AFRICON alerts the 31st TFW Command Post in Aviano Air Base, Italy of the attack, the Wing Commander orders preparation for the launch of two F-16s and advises the Command Post at NAS Sigonella to prepare for hot pit refueling and quick turn of the jets. 6. By 11:30 PM, two F-16Cs with drop tanks and each armed with five hundred 20 MM rounds are airborne. Flying at 0.92 mach they will cover the 522 nautical miles directly to NAS Sigonella in 1.08 hours. While in-route, the flight lead is informed of the tactical situation, rules of engagement, and radio frequencies to use. 7. At 1:10 AM the jets depart Sigonella with full fuel load and cover the 377 nautical miles directly to Benghazi in 0.8 hours, arriving at 1:50 AM which would be 20 minutes after the arrival of Woods, Doherty and their team. Providing that the two F-16s initial pass over the mob, in full afterburner at 200 feet and 550 knots did not stop the attack in its tracks, a few well-placed as well as 'redesign' our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love. It's my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we, as a Nation of warring people, conduct ourselves like the nations of Islam, where peace prevails perhaps a state or period of mutual accord could exist between our governments..." When I Become President, I will seek a pact of agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts. We as a Nation, have placed upon the nations of Islam, an unfair injustice which is WHY my wife disrespects the Flag and she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past". "Of course now,i have found myself about to become The President of the United States and I have put my hatred aside. I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation,and offer the people a new path. My wife and I look forward to becoming our Country's First black Family. Indeed, CHANGE is about to overwhelm the United States of America." Yes, you read it right. Dale Lindsborg, Washington Post OBAMA IS GUILTY OF TREASON! strafing runs on targets of opportunity would assuredly do the trick. Were the F-16s fuel state insufficient to return to Sigonelli after jettisoning their external drop tanks, they could easily do so at Tripoli International Airport, only one-half hour away. As for those hand-wringing naysayers who would worry about IFR clearances, border crossing authority, collateral damage, landing rights, political correctness and dozens of other reasons not to act -- screw them. It is time our "leadership" get its priorities straight and put America's interests first. The end result would be that Woods and Doherty would be alive. Dozens in the attacking rabble would be rendezvousing with "72 virgins" and a clear message would have been sent to the next worthless POS terrorist contemplating an attack on Americans that it is not really a good idea to "tug" on Superman's cape. Of course, all this depends upon a Commander-In-Chief more concerned with saving the lives of those he put in harm s way than getting his crew rested for a campaign fund raising event in Las Vegas the next day. It also depends upon a Secretary of State who actually understood "What difference did it make?", and a Secretary of Defense who was watching the feed from the drone and understood what the attack consisted of instead of making an immediate response that "One of the military tenants is that you don't commit assets until you fully understand the tactical situation." YGBSM! (You Gotta Be Shitting Me) Ultimately, it comes down to the question of who gave that order to stand down? Whoever that coward turns out to be should be exposed, removed from office, and face criminal charges for dereliction of duty. The combat forces of the United States of America deserve leadership that really does "have their back" when the chips are down. FOR THOSE OF YOU HAVE ACTUALLY TAKEN THE TIME TO READ THIS, DO ONE THING FOR ME AND SHARE IT! TO AVOID THIS HAPPENING AGAIN, WHOMEVER GAVE THE "STAND DOWN" ORDER NEEDS TO BE HUNG FOR TREASON From page 9 - Evangelical Vote nation is currently on will continue and WILL lead to disaster. If we don t turn the ship now, we re headed to be like socialized Europe religion pushed out of everyday life and a financial disaster getting worse by the month. Even reaching problems like what s going on in Argentina, where they are currently literally fighting for food, is not out of the realm of possibilities. It s that bad. Don t think it can t happen here. At the end of the day was prayer. With few exceptions, the entire room knelt on the floor in corporate prayer for our nation. I took the opportunity to take a quick picture of that sight, some 1000 people in their Sunday clothes on the ground praying together. Who knows where this will lead. Maybe. So, the bottom line for me is that I love this country and our Constitution more than I dislike Trumps antics and ego. He will attempt to change the direction that Godless liberals and their propaganda-media have led this nation. With Trump we have a chance. With Clinton we have no chance. Be thankful we still have a chance and VOTE this fall. Please share this. The future of our country in general and our religious liberty in particular depend on every Christian being registered to vote -- AND VOTING.

Can you identify with my prayer? It s been said that, there are no atheists in fox holes. Those of you that are believers have fox hole experiences of your own and I would think that at this time of year you too are thankful for God s firm but tender hand upon you to change and re direct your life. It s like the staff of the Sheppard that can gently bring the lamb back into the fold or the when the lamb continues to wonder it s the same good Sheppard that may even break the leg of the lamb for its own good and to save its very life. So there I am alone and afraid, it s still night and I can t wait for the morning. There is no sleep only remorse. But I m the lucky one. I get to hire a bondsmen at 8am and get to go home and leave this awful place. My friend has no such luck; he is not military and has no money, so he waits for weeks and then months for the results to come back from the State labs in Austin. In the mean time my wife prays, she prays that I will turn my life over to Christ in a real and meaningful way. She was raised in a Christian home and knew her way back to Christ. She ran home to the waiting arms of Jesus the moment she heard of my problem. That is what we call it, a problem, a mistake, we never call it sin. The real breakthrough for me came when an evangelist came to Tiger Stadium and I agreed to attend for one night. One night was all I could get off from work to even attend. It was the last night of the crusade and he spoke about something he called the second coming of Christ. Well that was interesting since I had only heard of Christ coming as an infant in a manager. So when the alter call was given I went forward to find out more. It was there and then that I gave my heart, my life, all of me to Jesus Christ. Remember at this time I still had the drug charges hanging over my head. I was still in my fox hole and my heart was ready for a change. The new me! It happened and it changed my life and even the life of those around me. AND NOW you know why I am so thankful...not just during this Thanksgiving season but all the year through. Christ has set me free from being me. WOW what a relief it is. God is real...he is not just on the pages of The Book; he lives his life in and through me.

The Site is: I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. Romans 1:16 As it turned out... the results from Austin came back negative for drugs, I think it was baking soda and sugar or something like that. Wow, it was great to be burned. Only God knew what it would take to get my attention. Sometimes the worse thing is actually the best thing. Remember the Sheppard that broke the lambs leg? As bad as it was, and I m sure, if the lamb could reason it had to wonder why the Sheppard was causing this hurt. Well a broken leg is the one thing that kept the lamb out of the wolf s mouth. NOW THE QUESTION IS DIRECTED TO YOU? What are you thankful for? It s like the game we played sitting at the Thanksgiving table. I would love to hear yours. Normally most of our thankfulness is superficial and lacks any lasting sincerity. Not everyone s is superficial, but from my perspective, if you don t have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ you don t have much to be thankful for. Of course there is the normal thankfulness of family and friends but in light of eternity everything seems superficial. Now take a look around society and what do you see, uncertainty, confusion, where are the absolutes we grew up with? The world is filled with the turmoil of war. War in the Middle East, North Korea is threatening and I believe war will come to America. I believe it s just a matter of time. The world is a mess, only Jesus Christ is the answer for the world today and He is the answer to give you peace beyond understanding. This is why at Vision Broadcasting, KVBA we promote the promise of Jesus Christ, and we have the promise of eternal life. Is it time to surrender your life to Christ? He is waiting with open arms, humble yourself today and ask Christ to forgive you of your sins and to be your Lord and Savior.

Then, we'll go to a nice old country area in Montana and show them how much admiration and respect we have for the hard working people living there." So they did, and found just the place they were looking for in Bozeman, Montana. With the dog in tow, they walked inside and stepped up to the bar. The bartender took a step back and said, "Hey! Aren't you Bill and Hillary Clinton?" "Yes we are!" said Hillary, "And what a lovely town you have here. We were passing through and Bill suggested we stop and take in some local color." They ordered a round of bourbon for the whole bar, and started chatting up a storm with anyone who would listen. A few minutes later, a grizzled old rancher came in, walked up to the Labrador, lifted up its tail, looked underneath, shrugged his shoulders and walked out. A few moments later, in came another old rancher. He walked up to the dog, lifted up its tail, looked underneath, scratched his head and left the bar. For the next hour, another dozen ranchers came in, lifted the dog's tail, and left shaking their heads. Finally, Hillary asked, "Why did all those old ranchers come in and look under the dog's tail? Is it some sort of custom?" "Lord no," said the bartender. "Someone's out there running around town, claiming there's a Labrador Retriever in here with two a--holes!"

Pessimist and a dog An avid duck hunter was in the market for a new bird dog. His search ended when he found a dog that could actually walk on water to retrieve a duck. Shocked by his find, he was sure none of his friends would ever believe him. He decided to try to break the news to a friend of his, the eternal pessimist who refused to be impressed with anything. This, surely, would impress him. He invited him to hunt with him and his new dog. As they waited by the shore, a flock of ducks flew by. they fired, and a duck fell. The dog responded and jumped into the water. The dog, however, did not sink but instead walked across the water to retrieve the bird, never getting more than his paws wet. This continued all day long; each time a duck fell, the dog walked across the surface of the water to retrieve it. The pessimist watched carefully, saw everything, but did not say a single word. On the drive home the hunter asked his friend, "Did you notice anything unusual about my new dog?" "I sure did,"responed the pesimist. "He can't swim." Catching the bear Two men went bear hunting. While one stayed in the cabin, the other went out looking for a bear. He soon found a huge bear, shot at it but only wounded it.
