Pictured: Crew member who died alongside captain of HMS Bounty after it is smashed to pieces by Sandy

These pictures show the HMS Bounty moments before it sinks as rescue teams recover the body of one crew member from the sea while the ship's captain remains missing, presumed dead.

Claudene Christian, 42, was pulled from the sea last night but was unresponsive and later pronounced dead, the U.S. coastguard said.

It now means 15 of the 16 crew members of the iconic boat are accounted for - with 63-year-old captain Robin Walbridge yet to be found.

HMS Bounty Sinks. A sad tribute in photos

It appears that the good ship has sunk in this terrible storm in an area that has become a graveyard to many ships like her. It appears 17 are rescued and 2 are still missing. Everyone at The Plain Truth sends our thoughts and prayers to all that are involved. Also a thanks to those brave men in the Coast Guard. Here is the link to The Bounty's Facebook page... Visit them and "like" them and send any thoughts their way. The Virginian Pilot is reporting that: "

Sailors abandoned the HMS Bounty in the Atlantic Ocean on Monday after it took on water during Hurricane Sandy, and the fate of two of its crew in peril.

The Coast Guard is searching the waters off the coast of North Carolina for two missing crew members, including Capt. Robin Walbridge, from the tall ship after rescuing 14 others from lifeboats this morning, a spokesman said. The Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported that the other missing crew member is Claudene Christian of Oklahoma.

Coast Guard helicopters plucked the Bounty’s crewmembers from two canopied lifeboats in the Atlantic Ocean, a short time after the crew abandoned ship. The 180-foot, three-mast tall ship had lost propulsion and was taking on water, said Coast Guard spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Jamie Fredrick.

A short time later, the HMS Bounty sunk into the Atlantic Ocean about 90 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, Fredrick said.

“They lost their generator and when they lost their generator, they lost their ability to dewater the vessel,” Fredrick said. “That’s when they made their decision to abandon ship.”

Survivors told Coast Guard officials that three of the crew were thrown overboard while they were getting into the lifeboats. One man was able to swim to the life rafts but two others were pulled away. 

Everyone was wearing cold water suits and life vests, which means they have a good chance of surviving until they can be rescued, Fredrick said."

Obama's ring: 'There is no god but Allah'

Barack Obama's gold band

NEW YORK – As a student at Harvard Law School, then-bachelor Barack Obama’s practice of wearing a gold band on his wedding-ring finger puzzled his colleagues.

Now, newly published photographs of Obama from the 1980s show that the ring Obama wore on his wedding-ring finger as an unmarried student is the same ring Michelle Robinson put on his finger at the couple’s wedding ceremony in 1992.

Moreover, according to Arabic-language and Islamic experts, the ring Obama has been wearing for more than 30 years is adorned with the first part of the Islamic declaration of faith, the Shahada: “There is no God except Allah.”

Inscription on Obama's ring

The Shahada is the first of the Five Pillars of Islam, expressing the two fundamental beliefs that make a person a Muslim: There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is Allah’s prophet.

Sincere recitation of the Shahada is the sole requirement for becoming a Muslim, as it expresses a person’s rejection of all other gods

Egyptian-born Islamic scholar Mark A. Gabriel, Ph.D., examined photographs of Obama’s ring at WND’s request and concluded that the first half of the Shahada is inscribed on it.

“There can be no doubt that someone wearing the inscription ‘There is no god except Allah’ has a very close connection to Islamic beliefs, the Islamic religion and Islamic society to which this statement is so strongly attached,” Gabriel told WND.  MorE>>>>>>>>>>

Unlocking the Mysteries of Petra

English: Petra, El Deir Deutsch: Petra, El DeirEnglish: Petra, El Deir Deutsch: Petra, El Deir (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

'Atlantis in the Sand'
Bob Barney Forward: Bible Fact- Petra is the THIRD most mentioned place in the Bible (under other names). It is the homeland of Esau (Edomites) the twin brother of Jacob, and has great significance yet to come during the Tribulation.
The discovery of the ancient desert city of Petra by Swiss explorer and Orientalist Johann Ludwig Burckhardt in 1812 is considered a great moment in history. Far away from all settlements, surrounded by dust and shimmering air, he had discovered what Lawrence of Arabia would later describe as the "most beautiful place on Earth." Today, Petra is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Two centuries after Burckhardt's discovery of the rock-cut city in Jordan, the Basel Museum of Ancient Art is exhibiting the latest archaeological finds from the "Atlantis of the Desert." Four teams of scientists -- from France, Germany, Switzerland and the United States -- are currently working at the site.
As archaeologists have been uncovering the true nature of the structures cut into the cliffs, such misconceptions have been dispelled. In truth, Petra was once an oasis with irrigated gardens and streets lined with temples and luxurious homes. There were camel troughs and storage vats for frankincense, myrrh and Indian spices.

The hand of God???


Not literally, but maybe a symbolic message being sent to us from God Almighty that they (they being the Father and the Son) are in control and puny man has no power to stop God's plan of salvation that is coming to this earth in the future, maybe even the near future by the looks of things around the world. GOD IS IN CONTROL and GOD does give us signs everywhere of the Lord's presence.CLICK HERE!

Lara Logan Blast Obama and Muslim Sympathizers and Media Lies

CBS News and "60 Minutes" reporter Lara Logan lambasted the Obama administration for pushing the "major lie" that the Taliban has been weakened in Afghanistan by the U.S. military.

Logan gave a blistering speech in Chicago this past week that ripped the administration for the way it has handled the war in Afghanistan and the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya.

"I chose this subject because, one, I can't stand that there is a major lie being propagated," Logan said about the administration touting the weakening of the Taliban in Afghanistan. Logan, if you remember, was beaten and sexually assaulted by a mob in Cairo’s Tahrir Square while she covered the demonstrations prompted by President Hosni Mubarak’s resignation in 2011. No doubt that horrible experience left a negative impression on her while covering these international events.

Speaking about Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya who was killed, Logan says she hopes the U.S. will "exact revenge and let the world know that the United States will not be attacked on its own soil. That its ambassadors will not be murdered, and that the United States will not stand by and do nothing about it."

My 2008 warning to America

Official Portrait of President Ronald ReaganOfficial Portrait of President Ronald Reagan (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

In October 2008, I wrote this article on how important it was for Obama and his communistic ways be defeated.... After 4 years, we have seen this warning become real......

By Bob Barney

In yet another move yesterday, the FED moved to directly make loans to large corporations. Little guys need not apply. Some seventy-five percent of all employed Americans works for the little guy, but only large corporations get any help from good Ole Uncle Sam! America, are you going to awaken? Do you not see what your future holds if this continual move towards totalitarianism continues? We are in the darkest hour of our existence as a nation! No, we are not on the verge of losing our homeland, like, we were in 1812, or our nation is not embroiled in a Civil War, as we were in 1863, but we are on the verge of becoming prisoners of our own government with our national malaise and welfare mentality. I have been calling all Americans to stand up for years now. Big business is just as evil as big government and the two in collusion equals FASCISM! Did you read that? Fascism! That's what we are moving to. On one hand, we have this almost surrealistic Obama movement which is much closer to the Nazi's in Germany than anything ever seen before and on the other hand, John McCain who is probably the weakest, and least able candidate to have run since Jimmy Carter! However, John McCain and Sarah Palin is our only hope! At least they are not total socialist and communist itching to destroy America and turn us into a European vessel state. That is what an Obama led nation will do!

I have included some quotes that can say far better than I what our fate is going to be, unless we wake up and take this country back! We must reject every sitting House member that voted for the bailout. I don't care what party they belong to. We must reject the Obama ticket and let McCain know that we will not tolerate any more erosion of personal rights, liberties and wealth. We must break up all monopolistic big business entities into smaller groups and must give American businesses most favored company status over foreign companies. We want Toyota in America, but we want it to be an American company, 51 owned by Americans! Let them spin off a subsidiary, something they do in other countries in order to be there.

Friends, this is a pivotal time for America. We are not just talking about who is elected President of the USA, we are talking about who we select to lead this nation going forward. Hopefully, by God's grace, John McCain will be that man and maybe Palin can return us to our glory days like we had with Ronald Reagan. However, it is important that you take back your government. Stop aliens from voting, stop the nonsense of ACORN and all like organizations and FIRE those who want to see us enslaved. I have warned that the Bible predicts that this will eventually happen to America, but it doesn't need to happen yet. We need to wake up.

In 1972, David Rockefeller(a Director of the Federal Reserve Bank and director of Chase Bank), who with Zbigniew Brzezinski, wanted to "bring the best brains in the world to bear on problems of the future." Speaking at Chase Manhattan International Financial Forums in London, Brussels, Montreal, and Paris, he proposed the creation of an International Commission of Peace and Prosperity (which would later become the Trilateral Commission). At the 1972 meeting, the idea was widely accepted, but elsewhere, it got a cool reception. According to Rockefeller, the organization could "be of help to government by providing measured judgment."

Zbigniew Brzezinski, a professor at Columbia University, and a Rockefeller adviser, who was a specialist on international affairs, left his post to organize the group with Henry Owen(a Foreign Policy Studies Director with the Brookings Institution), George S. Franklin, Robert Bowie (of the Foreign Policy Association and Director of the Harvard Center for International Affairs), Gerard Smith (Salt I negotiator , Rockefeller in-law , and 1st North American Chairman ) , Marshall Hornblower, William Scranton (former Governor of Pennsylvania), Edwin Reischauer(a professor at Harvard), and Max Kohnstamn. Brzezinski was the author of the book Between Two Ages, which was published in 1970, in which he called for a new international monetary system, and is considered to be the "Bible" of the Trilateralists. On page 72, he said: "Marxism is simultaneously a victory of the external, active man over the inner, passive man and a victory of reason over belief." He calls for "deliberate management of the American future (pg. 260)", a "community of nations (pg. 296)" and a "world government (pg. 308)". He became the first Director(1973-76), drafted its Charter, and became its driving force.

Funding for the group came from David Rockefeller, the Charles F. Kettering Foundation, and the Ford Foundation. (quotes from

Journalist Bill Moyers said "David Rockefeller is the most conspicuous representative today of the ruling class, a multinational fraternity of men who shape the global economy and manage the flow of its capital...Private citizen David Rockefeller is accorded privileges of a head of state...He is untouched by customs or passport offices and hardly pauses for traffic lights."

In 1973, David Rockefeller met with 27 heads of state, including representatives from the Soviet Union and China; Furthermore, in 1974, had a meeting with Pope Paul VI, who afterward called for the nations to form a world government. Sen. Barry Goldwater wrote that the Commission was "intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States. Goldwater wrote in his book With No Apologies: "What the Trilaterals truly intend is the creation of a worldwide economic power superior to the political government of the nation-states involved. As managers and creators of the system they will rule the world....In my view, the Trilateral Commission represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power: political, monetary, intellectual, and ecclesiastical." On the left, the U.S. Labor Party alleges that the Commission was created by multinational companies in order to dominate American foreign policy. Upon analysis, their economic plans leaned toward the controlling of energy sources, food production, and the international monetary system, so was there any reason to doubt that there were ulterior motives to their agenda. (quotes from You need to read all of this article!

It wasn't Just Barry Goldwater who predicted economic disaster for America if these industrialist powers over government did not get curtailed, Ronald Reagan said much of the same. In 1964, Reagan said, " No nation in history has ever survived a tax burden that reached a third of its national income..... A government can't control the economy without controlling people. In addition, they know when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. They also knew, those Founding Fathers, that outside of its legitimate functions, government does nothing as well or as economically as the private sector of the economy."

He went on to say some 44 years ago that "Private property moralities are so diluted that public interest is almost anything that a few government planners decide it should be. In a program that takes for the needy and gives to the greedy" Does this sound like 2008? I think so.

I agree with Reagan when he said, "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this Earth. " Reagan also said in 1980 "The people have not created this disaster in our economy; the federal government has. It has overspent, overestimated, and over-regulated. " This is just as true today!

Ronald Reagan, like what I have been writing about knew that our country needed a special relationship with God and that only God's blessings could pull us through tuff times. "We who are privileged to be Americans have had a rendezvous with destiny since the moment in 1630 when John Winthrop, standing on the deck of the tiny Arbella off the coast of Massachusetts, told the little band of Pilgrims, "We shall be a city upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us so that if we shall deal falsely with our God in this work we have undertaken and so cause Him to withdraw His present help from us, we shall be made a story and a byword throughout the world."

Please take the time and Read Ronald Reagan's words. They ring true today! Click Here!

America, if we wake up, we can stop what is certainly going to be our fate. Wake Up!

Archaeologists Explore Two Mysterious Caves Near the Dead Sea

Excavation director suggests that they may be the resting place of the lost archives of the Jewish Second Temple.

Archaeologists Explore Two Mysterious Caves Near the Dead Sea

Hidden within desert desolation near the Dead Sea region of Ein Gedi, Israel, are two caves that at least one archaeologist suggests may possibly contain what remains of the lost archive of the Jewish Second Temple. The famous temple became one of King Herod's greatest architectural achievements and was destroyed by the Romans in 70 A.D. at the time of the First Jewish Revolt against the Roman Empire.

Led by Dr. Haim Cohen, a team plans to continue excavating a cave known as "Cave 27", a cave where Cohen had previously conducted excavations in 2003 under the auspices of Haifa University and again in 2006, as well as exploratory investigations of a sealed cave discovered by Cohen during a 2007 survey.  

Cave 27, also called the "Mikveh Cave" or Cave of the Pool at Nahal David, is best known for the Second Temple period (530 BCE to 70 CE) mikveh, or ritual cleansing pool>>>>> More>>>>>

Blaze readers are likely familiar with CBS correspondent, Lara Logan, the wartime journalist who endured a horrific ordeal in Egypt last summer when she was beaten and sexually assaulted by a mob of angry Egyptian men during their Arab Spring “celebrations.” Now, Logan has a message for the public: “they” (the Taliban and other Islamic operatives) are as strong as ever.

During a recent keynote address at the Better Government Association annual luncheon last Tuesday, Logan delivered what the Chicago Sun Times called “a provocative speech” to some 1,100 movers in government, politics, media, and the legal and corporate arenas. She explained that the Taliban, al Qaeda and its proxies haven’t gone away and are in fact re-energized and coming back in force. Logan also informed the crowd that a “lie” is being propagated by the American government.  More>>>>>>>>

Shock Memo: State Dept. Removed Security In Lead-Up to Benghazi Attack

In a new foreign policy headache for the embattled Obama administration, a memo has now leaked from the White House detailing numerous ways in which the U.S. Embassy in Libya warned Washington about an upcoming attack, according to Jake Tapper of ABC News. The memo comes from the embassy’s “security support team,” a group of 16 special forces soldiers assigned to protect the embassy who were inexplicably removed from Libya in August over their commander’s objections, just one month before the attacks in Benghazi. That commander, Lieutenant Colonel Andy Wood, will testify about their removal before the House Oversight Committee this week. More>>>>>>>>>>>

Solomon, Socrates and Aristotle in Pompeii

English: Pompeii, with Vesuvius towering above.English: Pompeii, with Vesuvius towering above. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

(Biblical Archaeology Review) Is it possible that the earliest existing picture of a scene from the Bible also includes the philosophers Socrates and Aristotle as onlookers? It is not only possible; I believe that is the case.

The earliest depiction of a Biblical scene comes from a site that is perhaps better known to some for its erotic art than for its religious devotions: Pompeii. The city was buried in volcanic ash in 79 A.D. following the eruption of nearby Mt. Vesuvius. It was a devastating tragedy for Pompeii’s residents but a boon to modern scholars and art historians.

In the building known as the House of the Physician, excavators found a wall painting clearly depicting King Solomon seated on a raised tribunal and flanked by two counselors. As described in the Bible, two women have come to the Israelite monarch, each claiming to be the mother of the same infant.

Design for Titanic II to be unveiled in NYC

The plans for a ship that has been dubbed Titanic II will be unveiled in New York, according to Australian billionaire Clive Palmer said.

Palmer, one of Australia's richest men, announced plans in April to construct the replica Titanic with exactly the same dimensions as the original.

He will release the design on the Intrepid Museum on Manhattan's West Side during a gala on Dec. 4, according to AFP.  The dinner menu will reportedly be the same menu as Titanic passengers were served on the day it say on April 15, 1912.

He plans on having the ship built in China before an initial passenger trip from Southampton in England to New York.

The ship is planned to be the same dimensions of the original and would have the same class separations as the original.

Unlike the Titanic, Palmer has said the new ship would have more safety features and air conditioning.

Pastor Offers Fiery Rebuke of Fellow Blacks: End Your ‘Slavish Devotion to the Democrat Party’


image from www.theblaze.comThe Bishop E.W. Jackson, founder of Chesapeake, Virginia-based Exodus Faith Ministries, recently released a controversial video calling for African Americans to make a mass exodus from the Democratic Party. Throughout the clip, Jackson delivers stinging blows to both liberals and the African Americans who continue to support them, while decrying what he sees as a “slavish devotion to the Democrat Party.”

“They have insulted us, used us, and manipulated us. They have saturated the black community with ridiculous lies,” he said, speaking directly to the black community. ”They think we are stupid and that these lies will hold us captive while they violate everything we believe as Christians.”

Jackson went into detail in the video, taking aim at the “unholy alliance” that he sees between Democrats, faux-civil rights leaders and Planned Parenthood.

“The Democratic Party has created an unholy alliance between certain so-called civil rights leaders and Planned Parenthood, which has killed unborn black babies by the tens of millions,” he proclaimed.
