China Flight Tests New Multiple-Warhead Missile

DF-41 launch comes amid heightened tensions over S. China Sea
April 19, 2016 5:00 am

China conducted another flight test of its newest and longest-range intercontinental ballistic missile last week amid growing tensions with the United States over the South China Sea.

Pentagon officials told the Free Beacon the flight test of the new road-mobile DF-41 missile took place Tuesday with two multiple, independently targetable reentry vehicles, or MIRVs, that were monitored in flight by U.S. military satellites and other regional sensors.

Officials did not say where the test took place. Past DF-41 launches were carried out from the Wuzhai Missile and Space Test Center in central China.

The latest flight test followed an earlier, rail-based canister ejection test of a DF-41 on Dec. 5.

U.S. Strategic Command commander Adm. Cecil Haney said Jan. 22 that China’s multiple warhead missiles are part of a significant investment in both nuclear and conventional forces.

“China is re-engineering its long-range ballistic missiles to carry multiple nuclear warheads,” Haney said in a speech.

The flight test came around the same time that a high-ranking Chinese general made an unusual visit to a disputed South China Sea island. Also, the missile test occurred three days before Defense Secretary Ash Carter visited the aircraft carrier USS Stennis as it sailed in the South China Sea.

Pentagon officials said the visit to Fiery Cross Reef in the Spratly Islands by Gen. Fan Changlong was timed to the Carter visit to the region. Fan is vice chairman of the Central Military Commission, the most powerful military organ under the ruling Communist Party of China.

The Pentagon has said China is covertly building military bases on disputed islands in the sea. Beijing has accused Washington of militarizing the sea by deploying warships and bolstering regional alliances.

Disclosure of the DF-41 test follows a newsletter report last month that stated China is nearing deployment of the new ICBM.

Kanwa Asian Defense reported last month that the new ICBM is in the final testing phase, and its expected deployment area will be near Xinyang in Henan province, in central China.

From that location, the missile would be capable of striking the United States in around 30 minutes, either through a polar trajectory or over the Pacific.


Saudi Arabia threatens economic ‘turmoil’ over 9/11 bill | New York Post

Saudi Arabia is threatening to sell $750 billion in American assets if Congress passes a bill that would allow 9/11 victims to hold the kingdom legally responsible for the terrorist attacks, a report said.

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir warned the Obama administration and congressional leaders last month that the kingdom would sell treasury securities and other assets if Congress didn’t yank the bill, The New York Times reported.

A Saudi sale could, in theory, destabilize the dollar and create global market turmoil, although some economists believe it is an empty threat.

The bill, co-sponsored by Sen. Charles Schumer, would remove immunity given to a foreign nations if the country’s government is found responsible for a terrorist attack on US soil — which could make the Saudi government vulnerable to a federal lawsuit by the families of 9/11 victims.

The threat comes before President Obama’s trip to the oil-rich nation for meetings with King Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud on Wednesday.


The Washington Post: Hillary’s new star turn: heroine of children’s books

In a presidential election year, there will, of course, be political biographies. But political biographies for children? This month three children’s books about one candidate — Hillary Clinton — hit the shelves. Aimed at a variety of age groups, the books deliver a similar message of female strength, though admittedly one likely to go down easier in Democratic-leaning households.

Jonah Winter’s picture book “Hillary” (Schwartz & Wade, ages 4 to 8) begins with a slightly tongue-in-cheek overview of history’s notably strong women: Queen Elizabeth, Joan of Arc (“she was . . . kind of intense”), Rosie the Riveter, “and now there is . . . Hillary.” The first image, rendered delicately in watercolor, colored pencils and lithograph crayon by Raul Colón, shows young Hillary in a baseball cap, surrounded by tall boys, pointing assertively. “She was scrappy,” Winter writes. The tale that unfolds will be familiar to parental readers — Hillary graduating from law school, becoming a mother and first lady. There’s even a summary of her work for health care reform. In simple terms, Winter offers younger readers a portrait of someone who learns all she can and draws on her experience in tough situations. As secretary of state, “she was the hardest of workers, getting up earlier and staying up later than anyone, reading countless reports filled with important information, making decisions that might save lives or cost lives.”There is little subtlety to Winter’s depiction, and his author’s note says it most plainly: “By becoming president, she would demonstrate that a girl can grow up to be the most powerful person in the world. That’s the world where I want to live. And this is a story I am thrilled to tell.”


Temple of Baal in New York Is Going Up Just Before Baal’s Biggest Day of the Year — Charisma News

Is it just a coincidence that reproductions of the 48-foot-tall arch that stood in front of the Temple of Baal in Palmyra, Syria are going to be put up in Times Square in New York City and in Trafalgar Square in London exactly 13 days before Baal’s biggest day of the year?
In the occult world, 13 is the number of rebellion, and these arches are going to be put on display precisely 13 days prior to the major occult holiday of Beltane on May 1. In a previous article, I explained that the chief god of ancient Babylon named Marduk eventually came to be known as “Baal” or “Bel” which both mean “Lord.” As worship of this ancient deity spread all over the globe, sometimes this language was retained, and this is definitely true when it comes to “Bel-tane” or “Baal-tein”.
Beltane can be translated as “Baal fire,” and even many Wiccans acknowledge that this festival has origins which can be traced all the way back to the Baal worship of the ancient Middle East. For example, the following comes directly from the website of a Wiccan named Lady Bridget:
La Baal Tinne, Beltane, Beltain, all are names for the ritual which was traditionally held on May 1st, also known as May Day. The astrological festival occurs when the Sun reaches 15 ° Taurus, which lately has been happening more towards May 4-6th. Either the traditional date or the astrological date can be used to determine when to hold your festival as both will have significant energies for the season.
And the season is Spring! The lusty month of May is called so for a reason! Watch the animals, they are “rutting” now, looking to attract mates to raise their families. Butterflies and insects are pollenating flowers all over, and trees are bursting into blossoms and new green growth. In spring, “the young man’s fancy turns to love..” and the young girls fancies turn to young men! (sic)
Beltane, named for the Celtic Sun God, Bel, or Bal, or Baal, also means Bale, to banish, as in the bale fires, which are lit on Beltane to cleanse and purify. Cattle were led between two fires to cleanse them, and I have heard theories that the Druids quite possibly may have put purifying herbs on the fires to physically help the process along, but there is no actual proof of this.
And here is another example that comes directly from
Beltane is the second most important sabbath in the Witches’ calendar after Samhain. Again, it is an intercalary day when the veil between the worlds of the living and the dead is thin. But whereas Samhain is a time for greeting and celebrating those who have gone before, Beltane is a time when more mischievous spirits may take advantage. For this reason the results of divinations performed at Beltane should always be approached cautiously, for the Gods also enjoy a sense of humour! Similarly, be very careful of working Magic at this time, for the phrase ‘Be careful what you wish for’ is even more appropriate around Beltane. Many a Witch has found a wish being granted very literally and has received what they asked for as opposed to what they wanted.
This is the festival of the fire God Bel. Bel has been worshipped under many names in all parts of the world for thousands of years; Bel, Beli, Balar, Balor, Belenus, Baal, and Belial. Traditionally, Beltane would be the night on which the old hearth fires were extinguished and the new were kindled from the Bel fire. These fires were placed on the top of hills and produced a chain of beacons which ran across the land. Cattle would be driven between the fires and people would leap over them to ensure fertility for the coming season. In Britain, the tradition of hilltop fires has seen something of a revival lately, although not necessarily associated with Beltane. Fire beacons were lit at the passing of Princess Diana and to mark the Millennium celebrations.
Even the occultists understand that the purpose of Beltane is to honor Baal.So isn’t it odd that these arches from the Temple of Baal are going up in New York and in London just in time for this high occult holy day?
READ: “It’s Not Just Times Square—Altars to Baal Will Be Built Around the World”Posted below is the Wiccan wheel of the year. You can see that Beltane is opposite Samhain (Halloween) on the wheel, and it has experienced a tremendous resurgence in popularity in Europe in recent years.In ancient times, Beltane celebrations involved lots of sex and lots of fire sacrifices.It is also important to note that May 1 is more commonly known as “May Day” around the world. It is a major holiday for communists and socialists, and it is also the date on which the Bavarian Illuminati was formed in 1776.Leading up to Beltane is a 13-day period of time that also appears to have special occult significance. This is something that I wrote about the other day, but I wanted to explore this a bit more.Admittedly, there are not a lot of mainstream sources that discuss this 13-day period just prior to Beltane, and much of the information on the Internet appears to be speculation.

But there are some authors that have written about this. This first example is an excerpt from a book titled The Most Dangerous Book in the World: 9/11 as Mass Ritual by S.K. Bain.

In case you were wondering, April 19 is a Satanic holy-day, requiring sacrifice by fire, most preferably involving the sacrifice of children, and, indeed, multiple children perished in both Waco (more than 20) and Oklahoma City (19 under the age of 6).

And this next example is an excerpt from a book entitled Phoenix Rising: The Rise and Fall of the American Republic by Donald G. Lett Jr.

In the occult April 19th begins the second highest holy day in the occult called the Beltane, which is a 13 day period which ends on May 1st. The first day of the Beltane is the most important day for human sacrifice. Even the ancient Romans honored April the 19th as the conclusion to their holiday Cerealia, the primary festival of Ceres that was accompanied by “Games of Ceres” in the Circus Maximus.

Lett is definitely correct about the significance of April 19 to the Romans.

According to Wikipedia, it was customary to sacrifice a pregnant cow on that day.

In ancient Roman religion, the Fordicidia was a festival of fertility, held April 15, that pertained to farming and animal husbandry. It involved the sacrifice of a pregnant cow to Tellus, the ancient Roman goddess of the Earth, in proximity to the festival of Ceres (Cerealia) on April 19.

All over the Internet, there are reports that the 13-day period that begins on April 19 and that culminates with May 1 is known as “the blood sacrifice to the Beast.” Many of these reports seem to have gotten their material from an article that was originally posted on the highly respected website

Did you know that April 19 is a most important date every year in the Satanic Calendar of High Holy Days? April 19 begins a 13-day period of blood sacrifice to the Beast, culminating on May 1!

And there is a book from 1995 entitled Circle of Intrigue that also made this claim…

“According to the Satanic Calendar of High Holy Days, April 19 inaugurates a period of blood sacrifice to the Beast, culminating in the Grand Climax on May 1st each year. May 1st (May Day), of course, is celebrated in Red Square (note the color, red) in Moscow each year by a huge parade and spectacle. It was also on May 1, 1776 in Bavaria that Adam Weishaupt founded the Order of the Illuminati, and it was May 1st when the ancient Druids honored their great Sun God and Goddess with an uninhibited festival complete with initiations, sex orgies, drunken revelry, and human sacrifice.”

Joseph Spickard is another respected author that has also written about this.

The following is an excerpt from an excellent article that was posted on his website:

Sacrifice by fire is required by pagan, occult and satanic elements on April 19. An emphasis on the sacrificial victims who are children or youth is made. “Passing through the fire” to the fire god, Molech, in the Old Testament of the Bible, described children going through the ritual of fire worship and sacrifice. In this regard, the arms of the god Molech were operated mechanically beyond a veil or curtain in the back of the image by its priests. When a victim was selected or chosen from among those “passing through the fire,” the child was placed on the supporting Molech outstretched hands, pulled over a pit of flame, and then the hands were shifted mechanically sideways, causing the child to fall and be consumed into the very hot pit furnace below.

The child’s screams were muffled by the very low bass sound of drums and music instruments and the corresponding high pitch of tambourines and other music utensils to drown out its cries. This bass sound was exceeding low. This was to be called later the “Devil’s chord.”

A Molech site was located just outside of Jerusalem during the period of the Kings and Minor Prophets. The Valley of Hinnom, or in Greek called Gehenna, was located on the south and southwest side of the city. Gehenna was later translated as the popular rendition or place, of hell fire. For the hundreds and hundreds of children, if not thousands, that were immolated … this was an apt description. The Valley of Hinnom, or Gehenna, became a garbage dump during the time of Christ which continued to emit flame and fire in burning refuse, dead bodies of animals and common criminals, and offal.

So what are we to make of all of this?

It is hard to say.

What we do know is that a lot of strange events have happened on or around April 19th. The following list comes from Advent of Deception.

April 19, 1904—The Great Fire of Toronto.
April 18, 1906—The San Francisco Earthquake Fire.
April 19, 1943—After trapping the last Jewish Resistance Fighters in a storm drain in Warsaw, and holding them for several days, Nazi Storm Troopers began to pour fire into each end of the storm drain, using flame-throwers. They continued pouring the fire into the drain until all fighters were dead. Blood sacrifice brought about by a fiery conflagration.
April 20, 1985—ATF raid on The Covenant, The Sword and the Arm of the Lord compound in northern Arkansas.
April 19, 1993—50 years later after of the 1943 Warsaw, to the day, government troops, tanks and other military equipment stormed the compound of David Koresh and his followers at Waco, Texas. Certainly, this operation fulfilled the basic requirements for a human sacrifice: trauma, fire and young sacrificial victims.
April 19, 1995—Oklahoma City bombing—Once again fire and death on this day.
April 20, 1999—The Columbine High School Massacre.
April 19, 2005—Joseph Alois Ratzinger elected as Pope Benedict XVI.
April 20, 2007—Johnson Space Center shooting and incident of hostages in Building 44.
April 19, 2010—In Canada over 400 hundred of straw bales caught on fire and blazed out of control.
April 19, 2010—Iceland’s Volcanic Ash Grounds all Airlines in Northern Europe while NATO conducts the largest military exercise of the Year.
April 20, 2010—The Gulf Oil Fire.
April 20—The Birthday of Adolf Hitler.
In the end, the significance of April 19 is certainly up for debate, but nobody can question the significance of May 1. Even occultists acknowledge that Beltane is a festival that honors the ancient Middle Eastern god “Bel” or “Baal,” and today it is celebrated with fire and sex just like it was back then.

And on this “May Day,” millions of children around the globe will once again dance around huge “Maypoles” without even understanding what they originally represented.

Once your eyes are opened, it is easy to see traces of the ancient Babylonian religious system all around us. Of course this is precisely what we should expect if we have indeed moved into the period of time that the Bible refers to as the last days. As society continues to reject the God of the Bible, people will increasingly turn to false religion to fill the spiritual void that they feel.

Personally, I find it exceedingly suspicious that reproductions of the 48-foot-tall arch that stood in front of the Temple of Baal in Palmyra, Syria are going to be put up in Times Square in New York City and in Trafalgar Square in London just before Baal’s biggest day of the year.

So what do you think?

Cruz jokes about running over Trump with a car | TheHill

Appearing on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Cruz was asked by Kimmel whom he disliked more: President Obama or Trump. ADVERTISEMENT”I dislike Obama’s policies more. Donald is a unique individual,” he said, trailing off to laughter. “If I were in my car and getting ready to reverse and saw Donald in the backup camera, I’m not confident which pedal I’d push.” Trump last week launched an attack on Cruz’s wife, Heidi, after an anti-Trump super-PAC used a picture of Trump’s wife, Melania, posing nude in an ad. Cruz has said multiple times he was not involved in the ad and has slammed Trump for bringing his wife into the race. He also criticized Trump on Wednesday for his comments about abortion, saying the businessman “hasn’t seriously thought through the issues, and he’ll say anything to get attention.” Trump drew controversy Wednesday for saying women should be punished for getting illegal abortions. He later sought to clarify his position, saying he would not punish women but instead the abortion providers.

Trump: Cruz’s campaign bought rights to GQ photo

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump on Sunday slammed rival Ted Cruz for the recent ad produced by an anti-Trump super-PAC featuring a photo of Trump’s wife posing nude.

“From what I hear, he and his campaign went out and bought the cover shoot. Melania did a cover story for ‘GQ,’ a very strong modeling picture. No big deal,” Trump said on ABC’s “This Week.”

“But it was a cover story for ‘GQ,’ a big magazine. And it was, you know, fine. And from what I hear, somebody bought the rights to it and he was the one or his campaign bought the rights and they gave it to the super PAC.”

Trump said Cruz knew about the ad, adding he started the latest fight between the two. Last week, Trump threatened to “spill the beans” on Cruz’s wife in response to the ad featuring Melania Trump. He then shared a tweet featuring a photo of his wife next to a photo of Cruz’s wife, stating, “A picture is worth a thousands words.”

Cruz has denied knowing anything about the ad, and called it deplorable on Sunday.

But Trump said the super PAC that produced the ad is “very friendly to Ted Cruz.”

“He knew all about it, 100 percent,” he said.

“There’s no way in a million years that super PAC did that without his absolute knowledge.”


A Woman In A Burqa Burns A Bible In Downtown Paris


Provocation. Muslim Burqa was arrested in burning a Bible in the XII arrondissement of Paris relates the Parisian.

She will not chase if not fined for wearing the burqa. A 34 year old woman was seen by police burning a Bible. “Given the current climate of terrorist threats,” the police headed quietly to the suspect before handcuffing him to conduct a search and find that she was not armed.

After making him remove her burqa to carry out an identity check they question the young woman on site which explains his actions by the fact that it “feels persecuted.” The prosecution eventually directed that it be taken to the hospital of the Hotel-Dieu, where she will be deemed “sane”. Resident at Aulnay-sous-Bois, the thirty will have to pay a fine for wearing the burqa but the prosecution did not accept offense to fire and degradation.


Robert Jeffress Rebukes Glenn Beck for Criticism of Southern Evangelicals

…“All throughout the South the Evangelicals are not listening to their God,” Beck said at a rally in Utah on Monday.

“Beck’s wacko comment speaks for itself,” Jeffress tells Breitbart News.

“However, by using the phrase ‘their God’ to refer to the God we evangelical Christians worship, Beck is finally admitting that the true God of the Bible is different than the god of the Book of Mormon. I congratulate Beck for his honesty in differentiating between the two,” Jeffress adds.

NOTE: Mormons are considered a cult, as the book of Moron was not divinely inspired but instead written from a mans soulish perspective of a man standing on a physical planet.

“However, I am somewhat puzzled that Beck claims to know how the God Christians worship would vote in the Republican primaries.”

One prominent academic who specializes in American religion takes exception to Beck’s comments as well.

…None of us has special access to God’s opinions about candidates,” Kidd says.

Religious men’s opinion off…
God’s opinion on…
1 Samuel 16King James Version (KJV)
16 And the Lord said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons.

12… And the Lord said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he.
13 Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the Lord came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.

14 But the Spirit of the Lord departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the Lord troubled him.

God first reveals to his Prophets, Glenn Beck is not a prophet of the most high God but a deception to the masses…

Note: …God has not revealed Ted Cruz as the divinely anointed alternative, either,” Kidd concludes.


Stop Trump Movement Gets Boost From Mexico’s Efforts in U.S.

Mexico is mounting an unprecedented effort to turn its permanent residents in the U.S. into citizens, a status that would enable them to vote — presumably against Donald Trump.

Officially, Mexico says it respects U.S. sovereignty and has no strategy to influence the result of the presidential race. Yet Mexican diplomats are mobilizing for the first time to assist immigrants in gaining U.S. citizenship, hosting free workshops on naturalization.

“This is a historic moment where the Mexican consulate will open its doors to carry out these types of events in favor of the Mexican community,” Adrian Sosa, a spokesman for the consulate in Chicago, said before an event on March 19. In Dallas, about 250 permanent residents attended the consulate’s first “citizenship clinic” in February and another 150 in its second in March. In Las Vegas, the turnout topped 500.

Underscoring the fine line that separates participation from interfering in another country’s election, Sosa noted that the consulate only hosts the event but it’s community organizations who offer the advice.

Mexico may have the most at stake but it’s not alone among U.S. allies bewildered by — and worried about — the reality-television star’s success in the Republican primaries. Trump, who launched his campaign with invective directed at Mexico and a promise to build a border wall (with a “big beautiful door”), identified himself last week as his own top foreign-policy adviser.


Soros Board Member Chairs Firm Running Online Voting for Tuesday’s Utah Caucuses

The chairman of Smartmatic’s board, Lord Mark Malloch-Brown, currently serves on the board of George Soros’s Open Society Foundation and has close ties to the billionaire.

The Wall Street Journal dubbed the Republican party’s online adventure on Tuesday as “one of the biggest online votes conducted so far in the U.S.” and the “largest experiment with online presidential voting since 2004, when Michigan allowed Democrats to vote in a party caucus via the Internet.”

The Journal further reported:

Utah residents will have the option of casting ballots in the Republican presidential contest using computers, tablets, and smartphones next week. …

Online “polls” will be open between 7:00 a.m. and 11 p.m. on March 22. Voters will get a receipt that will verify that their vote was recorded correctly. The state party declined to release the number of online voter registrations that it has received. …

“We expect all the jurisdictions across the U.S. to take notice and to look at this experience as something to study and, hopefully, follow,” said Antonio Mugica, founder and chief executive of Smartmatic Group, an election-equipment vendor that is running the Utah election.

Fox News Debate Scrapped After Donald Trump Cancels

The announcement was made hours after the GOP frontrunner said he would skip the event.

The upcoming Fox News debate set for March 21 in Salt Lake City has been canceled, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The announcement was made hours after frontrunner Donald Trump said he would skip the event, marking the second time he would be a no-show for the network’s debate.

Rather than attend the debate, Trump will be speaking at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

After Trump pulled out of the debate, Ohio Gov. John Kasich passed, according to a statement from Fox News.

“Ted Cruz has expressed a willingness to debate Trump or Kasich — or both. But obviously, there needs to be more than one participant. So the Salt Lake City debate is canceled,” according to the statement.

When asked for a response to the news, Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks said “Mr. Trump looks forward to speaking at AIPAC, as planned.”


Pope Francis Says Donald Trump Is ‘Not Christian’ – This is why we have Separation of Church and State

Pope Francis took umbrage at comments Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has made about immigrants, saying in an interview that the real estate mogul was “not Christian.”The pope’s strong dismissal of Trump was in response to measures Trump has proposed on the campaign trail, including building a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border and deporting millions of undocumented immigrants living and working in the U.S.When asked by a reporter, “Can a good Catholic vote for this man?” Francis responded by saying, “Thank God he said I was a politician, because Aristotle defined the human person as ‘animal politicus.’ So at least I am a human person. As to whether I am a pawn — well, maybe, I don’t know. I’ll leave that up to your judgment and that of the people.”2016 Candidates React to Pope and Trump’s Back-and-ForthHe continued: “And then, a person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not in the gospel. As far as what you said about whether I would advise to vote or not to vote, I am not going to get involved in that. I say only that this man is not Christian if he said things like that. We must see if he said things in that way and in this I give the benefit of the doubt.”The pope made these remarks before he concluded his visit to Mexico, which included a public Mass at the U.S.-Mexico border. Tens of thousands of people from both countries gathered for Mass
