DOOMSDAY COUNTDOWN Hawaii preparing for nuclear war as Kim Jong-un dons white suit to party with military chiefs after successful North Korean missile launch

– May 29, 2017

HAWAII is drawing up plans to protect its population from a North Korean nuclear strike and its radiated aftermath.

Officials have produced a doomsday survival blueprint which reveals how seriously they are taking threats from tyrant Kim Jong-un about striking the US.

The nuclear contingency plans are described as “formidable and critical to the survival of our 1.4 million residents and visitors in the unlikely event of a nuclear detonation”.

This includes “reviewing existing procedures for mass casualty and fatality management” and reviewing nuclear fallout shelters, sirens and other warning systems.

The doomsday plans come amid fears North Korean intercontinental ballistic missiles are on the verge of being able to reach American owned Hawaii.

Alaska and the west coast of America, including California which is the engine of the US economy, are also under threat.

Following Merkel Criticism, Trump Says Relationship With Germany Is ‘Very Bad’ And ‘Will Change’

Kaitlan Collins – May 30, 2017

Donald Trump lashed out at German Chancellor Angela Merkel shortly after she said Europeans can no longer rely on other countries and should “take our fate into our own hands.”

On Twitter Monday, the president said the relationship between the U.S. is Germany is “very bad” and “will change.”

“We have a MASSIVE trade deficit with Germany, plus they pay FAR LESS than they should on NATO & military. Very bad for U.S. This will change.”

After Trump and Merkel met twice twice during his foreign trip, both at the NATO summit in Brussels and the G-7 gathering in Sicily, she said “Europeans truly have to take our fate into our own hands.”

Why Is The Media Ignoring America’s Drinking Water Crisis?

– May 30, 2017

America has a looming water health crisis and no one seems interested in talking about it.

Over the last year many Americans have likely heard of the lead poisoning affecting the drinking water of Flint, Michigan. We have heard the horror stories of children being sickened due to the failure of Flint’s bureaucracies and failing infrastructure. However, a new report from the Natural Resources Defense Council reveals that Americans in every state are suffering because of failing infrastructure, under-reporting of violations, and lax enforcement of drinking water standards. The NRDC is an environmental advocacy group based in New York City.

The report, “Threats on Tap: Widespread Violations Highlight Need for Investment in Water Infrastructure and Protections,” found close to 80,000 violations of drinking water standards in every state in the U.S. “Very small systems found in rural or sparsely populated areas account for more than half of all health-based violations, and nearly 70 percent of all violations,” the NRDC writes.

BREAKING: Ontario gov’t announces bill to ban pro-life speech outside abortion facilities

Pete Baklinski – May 29, 2017

OTTAWA, May 29, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Ontario’s Attorney General announced plans for “bubble zone” legislation this morning that would ban pro-life demonstrators and sidewalk counselors from being in front of any of the province’s abortion clinics.

Yasir Naqvi, Ontario Attorney General and Ottawa Centre MPP, made the announcement alongside Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson and Ottawa City Councillor Catherine McKenney. He said the legislation will be tabled in the fall.

Naqvi said during a press conference that it was his “steadfast belief that every woman in Ontario has the right to make decisions about her own health care and she deserves to do so freely without fear, without fear for her safety, privacy or dignity, without fear of being judged or publicly humiliated because of her choice, without fear of being threatened with violence, harassment, or intimidated.”

He also added that “no healthcare professional should have to take such things into account when going into work in the morning.”

Church of Scotland to Allow Gay Marriage?

Anugrah Kumar – May 28, 2017

A leader of the Church of Scotland, who convenes the church’s Theological Forum, told the General Assembly there is no theological reason to oppose same-sex marriages in the Church, as he presented a report that proposes the governing body approve a detailed study of how such ceremonies could be allowed.

“We see this as permissive rather than directive,” the Very Rev. Iain Torrance told the assembly, according to BBC. “We say that after reflection we can see no sufficient theological reason for the Church now not to authorize specific ministers to officiate at same-sex weddings, if doing so does not prejudice the position of those who decline to do so for reasons of conscience.”

Torrance added, “I hope, I pray, we are moving to a different stage in this long argument. We can begin perhaps by saying gently to those with whom we have disagreed, I am sorry. That notion of an apology is directly linked to taking this into a non-binary stage and trying to think these pieces differently with a different perception.”

Comment: John Durrad

Is this just foolishness or something more sinister?  The book of Proverbs tells us that foolishness is bound in the heart of a child but correction will drive it from them.  In other words, a child who is foolish should be punished to protect them from greater hurt.

So, are these people just foolish or is it another step to degrade the sanctuary of marriage?  Instead of this nonsense people should be growing up and seeking wisdom instead of vain interpretations of what true marriage is all about.

“I applied mine heart to know, and to search, and to seek out wisdom and the reason of things and to know the wickedness of folly. Even of foolishness and madness.” Ecc 7:25

It is good for children to know the wickedness of folly and foolishness; how much more does this apply to adults?

US, Japan to take ‘specific action’ after N. Korea missile hit Japanese economic zone

RT – May 29, 2017

Tokyo will take “specific action” and join forces with the US to deter Pyongyang, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said after a North Korean missile flew about 450km before landing inside Japan’s economic zone.

“As we agreed at the recent G7, the issue of North Korea is a top priority for the international community,” Prime Minister Abe told reporters in a televised comment, as cited by Reuters.

“Working with the United States, we will take specific action to deter North Korea,” Abe said, adding that Japan will also maintain close contact with neighboring South Korea and other countries.

The strident statement came in response to the latest missile launch by North Korea. On Monday morning, a short-range ballistic missile traveled around 450km and landed in the Sea of Japan, 300km off the Japanese coast.

5 Highly Respected Financial Experts That Are Warning That A Market Crash Is Imminent

Michael Snyder – May 29, 2017

If everything is going to be “just fine”, why are so many big names in the financial community warning about an imminent meltdown?  I don’t think that I have seen so many simultaneous warnings about a market crash since just before the great financial crisis of 2008.  And at this point, you would have to be quite blind not to see that stocks are absurdly overvalued and that a correction is going to happen at some point.  And when stocks do start crashing, lots of fingers are going to start pointing at President Trump, but it won’t be his fault.  The Federal Reserve and other central banks are primarily responsible for creating this bubble, and they should definitely get the blame for what is about to happen to global financial markets.

My regular readers are quite familiar with my thoughts on where the market is headed, so today let me share some thoughts from five highly respected financial experts…

#1 When Altair Asset Management’s chief investment officer Philip Parker was asked if a market crash was coming to Australia, he said that he has “never been more certain of anything in my life”.  In fact, he is so sure that the investments that his hedge fund is managing are going to crash that a decision was made to liquidate the fund “and return ‘hundreds of millions’ of dollars to its clients”

Islam on Track to Overtake Christianity as World’s No. 1 Religion

Brendan Kirby – May 29, 2017

Muslims will double their share of the population in the United States by 2050 and surpass Christianity as the world’s dominant religion by the end of the century, according to a Pew Research Center report released last week.

The Pew study comes the same week that saw two acts of mass murder perpetrated by Muslim extremists — a suicide bombing outside a concert in Manchester, England, and a gun attack on a bus filled with Coptic Christians in Egypt.

Based on demographic trends, Pew projects that the Muslim population will grow by 70 percent worldwide between 2015 and 2060, compared with an overall population growth of 32 percent. That far exceeds the projected growth of the second- and third-fastest growing religions, Christianity and Hinduism, respectively.
