Iran Hostages Forced To Buy Own Plane Tickets Home

Disgusting.   Billions to Iran no budget for plane tickets home.

One of the hostages, Pastor Saeed Abedini, told Fox Business’ Trish Regan he spent several days in a hospital in Germany nursing wounds from his torturous treatment, only to be released with little more than “prison clothes” and no way home.

“We flied from Iran to Germany and we were in a hospital in Germany for a few days before we come to United States. In Germany, actually, they told us you need to buy your own (plane) ticket to come to United States, and I was shocked.

“They said that was our job just to bring you out of Iran not bring you inside the country, in United States,” said Abedini, who was born in Tehran. Abedini converted to Christianity in 2000 and was arrested in 2012 in Iran, where he was tortured for three years, according to the news site.

“And I talked to other Americans in hospital and actually we were all shocked because … I came out; I had just prison clothes and they just told us you need to buy your own ticket,” he said, adding that he was in rough shape from his time as a hostage.

“I had the stomach bleeding for months in prison because they beat me very bad there … some physical attacks from the guards,” Abedini said. “And they kind of like make a team against me in the prison from the other prisoners, actually, so they tortured me psychologically and physically a lot.

“So I wasn’t in good health, but I was in my best part because just six months before we get released they let us to order from the restaurant in prison, and now I know probably they knew that we were going to be released so they wanted us to look in good shape,” he said.

Abedini said he told U.S. officials he believed they should return him to Boise, Idaho, where he lived before he was taken hostage, but they responded “there was no budget for that.”

Abedini said U.S. officials told him Christian outreach organizations could probably help get him home.  AmericanMirror

 

Ted Cruz Endorses Donald Trump

Ted Cruz:  This election is unlike any other in our nation’s history. Like many other voters, I have struggled to determine the right course of action in this general election.

In Cleveland, I urged voters, “please, don’t stay home in November. Stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket whom you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution.”

After many months of careful consideration, of prayer and searching my own conscience, I have decided that on Election Day, I will vote for the Republican nominee, Donald Trump.

I’ve made this decision for two reasons. First, last year, I promised to support the Republican nominee. And I intend to keep my word.

Second, even though I have had areas of significant disagreement with our nominee, by any measure Hillary Clinton is wholly unacceptable — that’s why I have always been #NeverHillary.

Six key policy differences inform my decision. First, and most important, the Supreme Court. For anyone concerned about the Bill of Rights — free speech, religious liberty, the Second Amendment — the Court hangs in the balance. I have spent my professional career fighting before the Court to defend the Constitution. We are only one justice away from losing our most basic rights, and the next president will appoint as many as four new justices. We know, without a doubt, that every Clinton appointee would be a left-wing ideologue. Trump, in contrast, has promised to appoint justices “in the mold of Scalia.” Full statement on Facebook

FBI Training Questioned in Recent Terror Attacks On The U.S.

largeThe FBI has slashed training that would give agents a better understanding of the origins and ideologies of Islamist terrorism and extremism.

Counterterrorism expert Sebastian Gorka said the FBI’s counterterrorism division has created excellent counterterrorism training courses since the 2009 Fort Hood attack.

“That is not the problem,” said Gorka, professor of strategy and irregular warfare at the Institute of World Politics. “The issue is the courses aren’t being held.”

Since last year, Justice Department funding for counterterrorism training was slashed by nearly 50 percent, Gorka said. As a result, the “Terrorism: Origins and Ideology” course designed specifically for Joint Terrorism Task Force members—whose mission is to catch people like Rahami before they kill—were reduced from eight courses per year to less than four.

“As a result our law enforcement officers are less prepared just as the threat has increased,” Gorka said.

What do Ameriphobes believe?


Joel Gilbert is a Los Angeles based film maker, and owner of Highway 61 Entertainment. He is the director and producer of recent political documentaries: Dreams from My Real Father, There’s No Place Like Utopia, Atomic Jihad, and Farewell Israel as well as pop culture films on music legends like Bob Dylan.

Joel Gilbert video has an accompanying article, “Hillary Clinton Promotes Ameriphobia.”

Once upon a time, phobias were confined to fears of heights, insects, and closed spaces.

But ever since Stalin’s mad scientists condemned those objecting to collectivism to psychiatric wards, progressives have gleefully labeled opposing opinions as mental disorders.

Fast forward from Stalin’s gulags to America today – if you believe in traditional marriage, you are unwell, you are “homophobic” (as was Barack Obama until 2012).

When an ISIS terror attack occurs on US soil, President Obama lectures Americans to keep their “Islamophobia” in check.

If you are not voting for the progressive presidential candidate, it’s due to your “xenophobia,” as Obama told an audience in Laos recently.

The president explained that Americans are born with a latent “racism gene,” which gets triggered when we are low on cash.

And beware, if you are a woman who doesn’t like men in your ladies room, liberals will soon be calling you out for a bad case of “transphobia.”

It is now abundantly clear that progressivism is the only real mental illness to speak of, and it’s time conservatives respond in kind.

So when Democrats banish American flags from their presidential convention, or when they condemn our police, what should Conservatives do?

The answer is: fix the Liberal with a steady gaze, point a quivering finger, and declare loudly “you are an Ameriphobe!”

Who are the Ameriphobes, why are they Ameripobic, what’s wrong with them, and where does their Ameriphobia come from?

What do Ameriphobes believe?

Ameriphobes have disdain for American values, and believe the American character to be “racist” and “selfish” rather than tolerant and generous. Ameriphobes dislike our police and military, and are especially uncomfortable in the presence of the American flag. Ameriphobes consider themselves morally superior to those who are not Ameriphobic.

How do Ameriphobes feel about America’s place in the world? Continue reading Ameriphobe

Federal Immigration Officials Working OT To Swear In New Citizens ‘Due To Election’

approved-stampInstead of checking backgrounds or verifying status and eligibility immigration officials are working overtime to rubber stamp and swear in new Democratic voters.   One wonders about the 1,800 people who should have been deported that were given citizenship, “by mistake”.

An internal Obama administration email shows immigration officials may be literally working overtime to swear in as many new “citizen voters” as possible before the Nov. 8 presidential election, a powerful lawmaker charged Thursday.

The email, from a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services field office chief and part of a chain of correspondence within the agency, urges the unnamed recipient to swear in as many citizens as possible “due to the election year.”

“The Field Office due to the election year needs to process as many of their N-400 cases as possible between now and FY 2016,” reads the email, which was disclosed to FoxNews.com by Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., who chairs the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.

“If you have cases in this category or other pending, you are encouraged to take advantage of the OT if you can,” the email continues. “This will be an opportunity to move your pending naturalization cases. If you have not volunteered for OT, please consider and let me know if you are interested.”

Parts of the email were redacted before it was disclosed to FoxNews.com, but it was sent by the branch chief of the Houston Field Office District 17. It was not clear to whom it was addressed.

“I couldn’t have said it better!” reads the July 21 note introducing the forwarded missive. “It’s the end of the year crunch time, so let’s get crunchy! Go Team Houston! Thanks for all your hard work!”

Johnson and Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, in a Wednesday letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, said it appears the agency is trying to swear in new citizens as the election between Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton and GOP choice Donald Trump approaches.

“Your department seems intent on approving as many naturalization cases as quickly as possible at a time when it should instead be putting on the brakes and reviewing past adjudications,” the senator’s letter read. FoxNews

IDF Begins Construction Of Massive Underground Wall On Gaza Border

gaza-tunnels-digThe IDF  has begun the construction of a massive wall along the 60 km (37 mile) Israel-Gaza border.  The new wall will be below ground and above ground with high-tech detection systems and sensors.

In the 2014 Gaza war, Hamas dug over 30 tunnels to launch attacks in Israel.  Hamas continues digging tunnels.

The IDF has begun construction on a massive, $600 million underground wall along the Israel-Gaza border intended to halt Hamas terror tunnels used to launch attacks and funnel weapons.

The wall, which will run the length of Israel’s 60-kilometer border with the Gaza Strip, will reach to a depth of several dozen meters, said IDF officials. The concrete barrier will also stretch above-ground.

The wall is the largest engineering project ever to be carried out by the IDF engineering corps, said General Gazi Eizenkot, IDF Chief of Staff.

Israel broke ground for the first portion of the new barrier along northern Gaza, near the Sha’ar Hanegev Regional Council, which comprises a cluster of Israeli communities living under the constant threat of infiltration from terrorists burrowing underneath the nearby border with the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.

High-tech detection systems and sensors incorporated into the thick concrete wall will represent an additional barrier to terrorists.BreakingNewsIsrael

From Damage To Discovery Via Virtual Unwrapping: Scientists Reveal Biblical Text From Ancient Scroll

The scroll after it was virtually unwrapped. (Seales et al. Sci. Adv. 2016; 2 : e1601247)

Amazing.

“Researchers at the University of Kentucky have used a new digital reconstruction technique to resurrect one of the earliest known versions of the Old Testament from a Hebrew scroll that was burned beyond recognition.” WSJ

In a significant archaeological achievement, an ancient Hebrew scroll that was burned in a fire in the distant past and was seemingly impenetrable has finally become readable— and scientists have discovered that it contains verses from the book of Leviticus.

The breakthrough was made through a high-tech process called “virtual unwrapping” and involved a collaboration between experts in the United States and Israel. While no one is sure of the precise age of the parchment, referred to as the En-Gedi scroll, radiocarbon dating suggests it is from about the third or fourth century. Discovered in 1970, it likely was burned in a fire that destroyed a synagogue in the year 600 AD.

“We’re reading a real scroll. It hasn’t been read for millennia. Many thought it was probably impossible to read,” Brent Seales, a professor in the computer science department at the University of Kentucky, said during a teleconference with the media on Tuesday.

Seales, the first author of the paper announcing the discovery in the journal Science Advances, explained that the breakthrough occurred after a scan of the fragile scroll was made in Israel using a micro-CT scanner; then his team digitally unpacked the rolled, charred object. They later corresponded with experts in Israel for the analysis of the lines of Hebrew text.

They first could see that the scroll contained writing when they examined the digital version of the document in the lab, which made them feel “elated,” Seales said in a response to a question during the news conference.

“The real joy came when [Pnina Shor, an expert with the Israel Antiquities Authority] sent me back the result of having read our first results, because then I knew not only were we seeing writing, but it was readable,” Seales continued, “because she and her team were able to identify it as a known text, and at that point, we were absolutely jubilant, I have to say.”

Seales also said during the news conference that their method may hold interest for those in security or intelligence who want to read something “noninvasively.”  FoxNews

George Soros To Invest $500m In Migrants

Christians need not apply.

George Soros
George Soros

Soros and other progressive elitist pushing Islamic immigration on Europe and North America (U.S. & Canada) is based on rejection and hatred of Judeo-Christian morality and civilization.  They want spiritual chaos and confusion resulting in easily manipulated people.  They seek to eradicate constitutional republics and democracies to have a non-white, non-Christian socialist global order.

Billionaire George Soros said in an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal that he would invest $500 million to meet the needs of migrants.

The White House announced the commitment from Soros and around 50 other companies ahead of Obama convening a refugee summit Tuesday afternoon.

Soros also said that he plans to work more closely with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and the International Rescue Committee to assist in his investments.

‘In response, I have decided to earmark $500 million for investments that specifically address the needs of migrants, refugees and host communities. I will invest in startups, established companies, social-impact initiatives and businesses founded by migrants and refugees themselves. Although my main concern is to help migrants and refugees arriving in Europe, I will be looking for good investment ideas that will benefit migrants all over the world.’

‘Governments must play the leading role in addressing this crisis by creating and sustaining adequate physical and social infrastructure for migrants and refugees.’ 911

Clinton Foundation AIDS Program Distributed ‘Watered-Down’ Drugs To Third World Countries

Despicable.

bclintonFormer President Bill Clinton and his Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) distributed “watered-down” HIV/AIDs drugs to patients in sub-Saharan Africa, and “likely increased” the risks of morbidity and mortality, according to a draft congressional report obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The congressional report, titled,“The Clinton Foundation and The India Success Story,” was initiated by Rep. Marsha Blackburn, a Tennessee Republican and vice-chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

The CHAI program to help AIDS victims is considered one of the Clinton Foundation’s most important contributions and is probably its best known initiative.

The congressional report focused on Clinton’s decade-long relationship with a controversial Indian drug manufacturer called Ranbaxy, which CHAI used as one of its main distributors of HIV/AIDS drugs to Third World countries. Read full article at DailyCaller
