Search crews 'find El Faro's missing data recorder in the Bahamas

Search crews on Tuesday found the missing data recorder of the sunken freighter El Faro, which went down in 15,000 feet of water last year after getting caught in Hurricane Joaquin.

Scientists and federal accident investigators using a remotely operated undersea vehicle found the device northeast of Acklins and Crooked Islands, Bahamas, the National Transportation Safety Board said. 

The small device was mounted to the El Faro's mast and has yet to be recovered, officials said.

'Finding an object about the size of a basketball almost three miles under the surface of the sea is a remarkable achievement,' NTSB Chairman Christopher A. Hart said in a news release. He added that they have not yet figured out how to retrieve the recorder.

The NTSB has announced that the data recorder was located northeast of Acklins and Crooked Islands, Bahamas. El Faro, a 790-foot freighter, sank last October after getting caught in Hurricane Joaquin

The 790-foot freighter sank last October after losing propulsion while traveling between Jacksonville and San Juan, Puerto Rico. The ship got caught in Joaquin's 155 mph winds and strong seas. All 33 crew died.

The NTSB failed to find the data recorder in its first search of the wreckage near the Bahamas. But images from an underwater vessel showed the ship's top decks had broken loose and a breach had punctured its hull.

The device is capable of recording conversations and sounds on the El Faro's bridge, which may help investigators better understand the final moments of the ship's final journey.    Read more: 

Earth Day predictions of 1970. The reason you shouldn’t believe Earth Day predictions

Luckily, we haven't run out of oil, but have exhausted our supply of 70s fashion.

Luckily, we haven't run out of oil, but we have exhausted our supply of 70s fashion.

For the next 24 hours, the media will assault us with tales of imminent disaster that always accompany the annual Earth Day Doom & Gloom Extravaganza.

Ignore them. They’ll be wrong. We’re confident in saying that because they’ve always been wrong. And always will be.

Need proof? Here are some of the hilarious, spectacularly wrong predictions made on the occasion of Earth Day 1970.

“We have about five more years at the outside to do something.”
• Kenneth Watt, ecologist

“Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.”
• George Wald, Harvard Biologist

We are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation.”
• Barry Commoner, Washington University biologist

“Man must stop pollution and conserve his resources, not merely to enhance existence but to save the race from intolerable deterioration and possible extinction.”
• New York Times editorial, the day after the first Earth Day

“Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.”
• Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist

“By…[1975] some experts feel that food shortages will have escalated the present level of world hunger and starvation into famines of unbelievable proportions. Other experts, more optimistic, think the ultimate food-population collision will not occur until the decade of the 1980s.”
• Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist

“It is already too late to avoid mass starvation.”
• Denis Hayes, chief organizer for Earth Day

“Demographers agree almost unanimously on the following grim timetable: by 1975 widespread famines will begin in India; these will spread by 1990 to include all of India, Pakistan, China and the Near East, Africa. By the year 2000, or conceivably sooner, South and Central America will exist under famine conditions….By the year 2000, thirty years from now, the entire world, with the exception of Western Europe, North America, and Australia, will be in famine.”
• Peter Gunter, professor, North Texas State University

“Scientists have solid experimental and theoretical evidence to support…the following predictions: In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution…by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half….”
• Life Magazine, January 1970

“At the present rate of nitrogen buildup, it’s only a matter of time before light will be filtered out of the atmosphere and none of our land will be usable.”
• Kenneth Watt, Ecologist


Stanford's Paul Ehrlich announces that the sky is falling.

Stanford's Paul Ehrlich announces that the sky is falling.

“Air pollution…is certainly going to take hundreds of thousands of lives in the next few years alone.”
• Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist

“We are prospecting for the very last of our resources and using up the nonrenewable things many times faster than we are finding new ones.”
• Martin Litton, Sierra Club director

“By the year 2000, if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate…that there won’t be any more crude oil. You’ll drive up to the pump and say, `Fill ‘er up, buddy,’ and he’ll say, `I am very sorry, there isn’t any.'”
• Kenneth Watt, Ecologist

“Dr. S. Dillon Ripley, secretary of the Smithsonian Institute, believes that in 25 years, somewhere between 75 and 80 percent of all the species of living animals will be extinct.”
• Sen. Gaylord Nelson

“The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years. If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.”
• Kenneth Watt, Ecologist

Keep these predictions in mind when you hear the same predictions made today. They’ve been making the same predictions for 39 years. And they’re going to continue making them until…well…forever.

Here we are, 39 years later and the economy sucks, but the ecology’s fine. In factthis planet is doing a lot better than the planet on which those green lunatics live.

Update: Earth Day 2010 version.


Earth Day's Big Lie

By Alan Caruba

image from 4.bp.blogspot.comMonday, April 22, is Earth Day. Begun in 1970, it led to the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency, along with the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. It is the global platform for the Big Lie that carbon dioxide (CO2) is causing the Earth to warm and the basis of the environmental movement’s ceaseless efforts to reduce the use of energy for any reason.

Carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere has been increasing, but the Earth has been cooling due to reduced solar radiation. CO2 has virtually no relationship to the climate except to show up well after a significant change has occurred.

On April 18, the Wall Street Journal reported that the International Energy Agency had announced that, despite spending “more than $2 trillion in investment into renewable-energy projects…the world had made almost no progress over the past 20 years in reducing the carbon content of its energy supplies.” It has never needed reduction. How many hospitals, schools, bridges, and other useful things that could have been built instead?


Ben Carson says escaped slave Harriet Tubman should not replace Andrew Jackson on $20 bill


Republican Ben Carson said Andrew Jackson, who is currently on the front of the $20 bill, should not be moved in the redesign put through this week because he was 'a tremendous president'.  

Former presidential candidate Ben Carson has questioned plans to put abolitionist Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill.

The Republican said Andrew Jackson, who is currently on the bill, should not be moved in the redesign because he was 'a tremendous president'. 

He suggested instead that Miss Tubman, an African-American who helped rescue slaves, should be put on a $2 note.

Harriet Tubman is the next face of the $20 bill; $5 and $10 bills will also change

The changing of America, by the guy who HATES AMERICA!

On Wednesday, Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew said Tubman would replace Jackson on the front of the $20 bill, becoming the first woman in more than a century and first African American to grace the front of a paper note. Jackson will be featured on the back of the bill alongside an image of the White House.

In another twist, Alexander Hamilton got a reprieve. Initially targeted for replacement by a woman on the $10 bill, Hamilton's reputation was burnished by an unlikely smash Broadway play and his case pressed by outraged historians pointing to his seminal role in creating the nation's first central bank. 

Treasury's announcement followed almost a year of heated public debate, shaped by social media and history alike.

Even former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke weighed in, pressing Hamilton's case on his blog. Bernanke wrote Wednesday that Tubman was an “excellent and deserving choice” while Hamilton had a better claim than any to stay on a bill.

Lew said the final concept designs of new $20, $10 and $5 bills are scheduled to be completed and unveiled by 2020, the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.

On This Day: 1865 President Lincoln dies

English: Abraham Lincoln, the sixteenth Presid... (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

At 7:22 a.m., Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States, dies from a bullet wound inflicted the night before by John Wilkes Booth, an actor and Confederate sympathizer. The president’s death came only six days after Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered his massive army at Appomattox, effectively ending the American Civil War.

Booth, who remained in the North during the war despite his Confederate sympathies, initially plotted to capture President Lincoln and take him to Richmond, the Confederate capital. However, on March 20, 1865, the day of the planned kidnapping, the president failed to appear at the spot where Booth and his six fellow conspirators lay in wait. Two weeks later, Richmond fell to Union forces. In April, with Confederate armies near collapse across the South, Booth hatched a desperate plan to save the Confederacy.

Learning that Lincoln was to attend Laura Keene’s acclaimed performance in Our American Cousin at Ford’s Theater on April 14, Booth plotted the simultaneous assassination of Lincoln, Vice President Andrew Johnson, and Secretary of State William H. Seward. By murdering the president and two of his possible successors, Booth and his conspirators hoped to throw the U.S. government into a paralyzing disarray.   MORE

On this day in 1865, John Wilkes Booth, an actor and Confederate sympathizer, fatally shoots President Abraham Lincoln at a play at Ford’s Theater in Washington, D.C. The attack came only five days after Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered his massive army at Appomattox Court House, Virginia, effectively ending the American Civil War.

Booth, a Maryland native born in 1838, who remained in the North during the war despite his Confederate sympathies, initially plotted to capture President Lincoln and take him to Richmond, the Confederate capital. However, on March 20, 1865, the day of the planned kidnapping, the president failed to appear at the spot where Booth and his six fellow conspirators lay in wait. Two weeks later, Richmond fell to Union forces.

In April, with Confederate armies near collapse across the South, Booth hatched a desperate plan to save the Confederacy. Learning that Lincoln was to attend a performance of “Our American Cousin” at Ford’s Theater on April 14, Booth masterminded the simultaneous assassination of Lincoln, Vice President Andrew Johnson and Secretary of State William H. Seward. By murdering the president and two of his possible successors, Booth and his conspirators hoped to throw the U.S. government into disarray.

On the evening of April 14, conspirator Lewis T. Powell burst into Secretary of State Seward’s home, seriously wounding him and three others, while George A. Atzerodt, assigned to Vice President Johnson, lost his nerve and fled. Meanwhile, just after 10 p.m., Booth entered Lincoln’s private theater box unnoticed and shot the president with a single bullet in the back of his head. Slashing an army officer who rushed at him, Booth leapt to the stage and shouted “Sic semper tyrannis! [Thus always to tyrants]–the South is avenged!” Although Booth broke his leg jumping from Lincoln’s box, he managed to escape Washington on horseback.

The president, mortally wounded, was carried to a lodging house opposite Ford’s Theater. About 7:22 a.m. the next morning, Lincoln, age 56, died–the first U.S. president to be assassinated. MORE

Drag Racing Driver Ronnie Davis Killed In Weekend Crash, Journalist Badly Injured

A sudden crash during a drag race Saturday killed veteran driver Ronnie Davis, 66, and seriously injured a journalist.

Davis died on Sunday of his injuries, while photographer and writer Ian Tocher, 55, was injured and underwent surgery; he is now recovering, the Associated Press reported.

At the time of the crash, Ronnie was driving a 1963 Chevrolet Corvette during a qualifying run at the PDRA Spring Nationals at the Rockingham Dragway in North Carolina, the Richmond County Daily Journal reported.


He had just completed the final run when, as the AP described it, the Corvette “turned left and shot across the track in front rival Mark Malcuit’s car. Davis’ car cleared the right-side guardwall and barrel-rolled.”

At one point, Davis’ car shot into the right lane before being launched into the air and above a retaining wall. According to Bleacher Report, Ronnie finished the lap in lap “in 4.130 seconds at 178.19 miles per hour” before the wreck.

Merle Haggard Dies on His Birthday- a Brief Bio that you won't read anywhere else

By Bob Barney

  image from I have listened to Merle Haggard since I was a boy. I liked rock and roll, but grew up in a total country and western household.  Listened to Hank Williams (and that is SR) and Ernest Tubb; but one star I really did like was the early songs of Merle Haggard.  So back in the day when I would listen to Garner Ted Armstrong on the radio, he would frequently mention that Haggard was one of his best friends.  After Garner Ted died, I came across some interviews with Haggard where he talked about his friendship with Ted, and was especially shocked to find out that Merle's largest hit, was in fact inspired by a Garner Ted radio show.

According to Merle Haggard, his 1969 hit, "Oakie From Muskogee," his biggest hit ever, started out as a joke and was written over a period of time, but the total time spent writing the song was probably no more than twenty minutes!

Merle said, "We were on the road, coming out of Arkansas and the bus passed a sign that read "Muskogee-19 miles." And somebody, I don't remember who, said "I bet they don"t smoke marijuana in Muskogee." Everybody thought that was funny. Roy Burris who was our drummer at the time - and I - started adding to that. Several days later, I was listening to a Garner Ted Armstrong radio program and he talked about the smaller colleges just didn't have the problems like drugs and riots-all those things you heard about happening at the larger colleges."

The two were fast friends, and spent time hunting together in Colorado, Wyoming and Montana.  Garner Ted would often talk about their friendship and how Haggard's songs reflected the good and bad about American middle class society.  He once joked about Haggard's song "If we can make it through December" about a married couple that basically was always on the verge of breaking up - an American moral dilemma, especially worrisome in the 1970's.

For his part, Haggard had said of Armstrong, “He was like a professor to me. What education I have, I owe to him."

Haggard said after he heard of the death of Garner Ted Armstrong, "after Johnny [Cash] died, I lost a real close friend in Garner Ted Armstrong. There was a period where I didn't even want to watch the news to see who else was gone."

Haggard's manager, Frank Mull, said Haggard died at home in Palo Cedro, California, of pneumonia.  The death came just a few days after the singer canceled his April concert dates after suffering from a recurring bout of double pneumonia.   In a statement issued by his publicist last week Merle said: 'I want to thank my fans for their prayers and well wishes.   'I hope to be back on the road in May, but I'm taking it one day at a time.'

The statement said that his doctors wanted him to take one more month off the road to rest and recover.  The singer of hits like Okie From Muskogee, Mama Tried and Workin' Man Blues had also cancelled dates in February and March.  He had a battle with lung cancer in 2008 but despite illness and his advancing age kept up an ambitious touring schedule.  Indeed, his 2015 tour schedule saw him perform in over 30 cities.

RIP Merle. It's a blessing, and a good sign from God to die on your birthday!




Donald Trump Don't Hold a Candle to This Figure!

Advent Truth Ministries, P.O. Box 307, Forsyth, GA 31029
There seems to be no stopping Donald Trump. He has obliterated  just about all of his politically correct opponents. Much has been said and written about his inability to become the president of the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave, but nothing nor no one has been able to slow his growing popularity with a significant swath of the American people.
His sound bite refrain, 'Let's Make America Great Again' has certainly captivated the minds of many. But the question must be asked, what does he really mean and with whom is it resonating so powerfully?
  Unstoppable Donald Trump

In 2007, housing prices sunk to a catastrophic low and the housing market was about to collapse. But today, it is at an all time high. Prices have risen and the market is robust. At that time, the unemployment rate was 12%. Today is at less than 5%. Who can forget the banking and auto industries that were imploding at a faster rate than the now defunct French Supersonic Transport passenger aircraft. Back then, the stock market was dropping precipitously and the body bags from Iraq were a staple on the daily news.
America is still the world's #1 Superpower. It remains the strongest economy on the planet. Sure we don't have a perfect, problem-free scenario; but America is already great.
The comparison has been made between the Donald and Hitler---same emotional  rhetoric, void of substance or reason. They both preyed on people's fears, prejudices, and insecurities. If Donald makes it to the White House, will he complete the comparison by eliminating those he deems unacceptable? 
Hitler had his pope, Pius XII. Will Jesuit Francis be the Donald's, and what would they accomplish together?  Here's some insight.

By Mike Exton TheBibleComesAlive@gmailcom,,

I have never voted in my entire life and I am not about to start now. Just about every single politician we have ever had has been corrupt. Even “Honest Abe” (i.e. Abraham Lincoln) was only elected president because he bribed the delegates at the National Republican convention.

So how about Donald Trump? Well, he does have one thing going for him: he is not a politician! And so far it appears that he is not bought (though I'm not at all convinced he won't someday take "legal" bribes just like all the rest of the politicians). Does he lie just like a politician? Absolutely! Does he say a lot of foolish things at times? Absolutely! Does he sometimes say things that are immature and downright childish? Absolutely! Does he sometimes say things that are offensive and irresponsible at times? Absolutely! Is he (if he becomes president) going to "make America great again"? Absolutely NOT!

Was it General McArthur who said (right after WWII) that the problems of the world are spiritual in nature. He said that if we want to solve the world's problems we need to change our hearts, both individually and collectively. And how true those words are! But unfortunately that is never going to happen. This world is bent on evil and things are getting worse and worse with each and every passing day. As the Bible states: "The heart is deceitful above all else and terribly wicked. Who can understand it?"

The ONLY one who could possibly change this country (as well as the rest of the world) for the better is Jesus Christ. Right now (as the Bible makes abundantly clear) Satan is running the show and he is not about to let up on deceiving mankind. He (along with his demonic cohorts) are very busy every second of every day inspiring humanity to do wicked things (not the least of which is savagely slaughtering over a million precious little babies each and every year in our nation alone). And things are only going to get worse, much worse, until we find ourselves on the brink of the total annihilation of the human race ("cosmocide") in the soon-coming third world war. But the good news is this: just as we are about to destroy ourselves (and the planet as well) Jesus Christ returns to earth. And He WILL stop the madness for once and for all, as Satan will be dethroned and removed. Christ will then rule in righteousness, love, power, and wisdom. The world will then burst forth in joy, peace, and prosperity. But until that day, things are prophesied to get worse and worse.

So would Trump (if elected president) be able to bring about the change that so many of us desperately desire? Of course not! The lies and deceptions will continue. The politicians will continue to be bribed ("legally" and "illegally") and to submit to their big corporate masters. Islamic terrorists will continue to savagely massacre scores of innocent people. Helpless little babies by the millions will continue to have their limbs ripped apart and their precious little bodies sucked out of their mother's wombs (all in the name of "pro-choice"—pro-murder actually!). Morals will continue to get even worse and worse (very similar to the ancient cities of Sodom and Gomorrah) with ever increasing perversions. More and more people will continue to reject God and instead have faith in the foolish evolutionary hypothesis. And on and on and on it goes.

So would Donald Trump be able to bring about real positive change? Absolutely not! Besides many of his other shortcomings, he is terribly lacking in character, which is one of the most important things for a president to have. But unfortunately, as bad as he is, he's probably the best candidate that we have (which shows just how bad things have gotten and how low we have sunk!).

Bernie Sanders is perhaps the only candidate who doesn't lie on a continuous basis. Plus, you know exactly what you are getting with him as he doesn't play games and try to deceive the American public. (Hillary "Let Me Tell You A Lot More Lies" Clinton of course is an expert at this, and this is why she has a great chance of being elected, as she is too clever in her deceptive ways for much of the American public.) Unfortunately, Bernie Sanders is a Democrat, which means he is in favor of the barbaric butchering of millions of little babies, so there is no way I could possibly support him (or any other pro-murder candidate). Plus of course he has socialist (if not even communist) leanings (and has even praised Fidel Castro as well as at least one other communist dictator). Plus of course he's in favor of stealing from the rich (as he said he want's to tax them 90%) and giving to the poor (free food, free housing, free cell phones, free college, free medical, free sex changes, etc.—what's next—free pornography and free sex for everyone?). (But of course none of this is really free. The federal government is about 18 trillion dollars in the red, and it’s only a matter of time before we collapse from bankruptcy.)

But the best thing about the possibility of Donald Trump being elected president is this: If he becomes president the American public would essentially being telling politicians: "Kiss My XXX!!!" Which of course is why so many people are supporting him! They are sick and tired of the BS that takes place in this country each and every day from our elected corrupt habitually-lying officials. And they have said "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! I'M MAD AS HELL AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!! LET'S SEE HOW YOU LIKE THIS—I'M VOTING FOR DONALD TRUMP!!!" And that’s what it’s all about. — Mike Exton (3-31-16) TheBibleComesAlive@gmailcom,,


WHEN WAS JESUS CRUCIFIED? Another Perspective....

Forward: The following is the theory that Christ was Killed on a Thursday.  This is not our view, but worth the read!

WHEN WAS JESUS CRUCIFIED?Most people in the Christian world believe that Jesus Christ was crucified on a Friday—“Good Friday.” But this is absolutely, positively, NOT what your Bible teaches! On the contrary—the Bible makes it clear that Jesus was killed on a different day! And it wasn’t Wednesday either—as many others believe! But which day was it?

When Was Jesus Crucified?  















Crimes of the Pope

Forward: The Pope has a long history of being as violent and evil as anyone from ISIS. The Bible explains all you need to know about the Papacy and the Final Beast Authority mentioned in Revelation. (CLICK HERE.. 


image from now give a rapid summary of the crimes and vices with which many of the popes disgraced the chair of St. Peter; and before we conclude, the reader will see that every villainy the imagination can conceive has been practised by the vicegerents of God. Peculation, theft, cruelty, murder, fornication, adultery, and incest, not to mention still darker crimes, have all been notoriously committed by the supreme rulers of Christendom, who sat in the seat of infallibility, and claimed universal jurisdiction over the thoughts and consciences of mankind.

ST. DAMASUS (366-84). He was the first to assume the title of Pontiff. His election was opposed by Ursicinus, whose partisans accused Damasus of adultery. [122:1] Riddle says:

"After some deadly conflicts between the followers of the two rivals, Ursicinus was banished from the city; and a similar sentence was about to be carried into effect against seven presbyters of his party, when the people interfered, and lodged them for safety in one of the churches. But even here they found no shelter from the fury of their opponents. Armed with fire and sword, Damasus, with some of his adherents, both of the clergy and of the laity, proceeded to the place of refuge, and left no less than a hundred and sixty of their adversaries dead within the sacred precincts." [122:2]

That this was a massacre and not a faction fight is shown by the fact that on the side of Damasus not a single person was killed. [123:3] Ammianus Marcellinus, the contemporary historian of the event, says of the contention between Damasus and Ursicinus:

"I do not deny, when I consider the ostentation that reigns at Rome, that those who desire such rank and power may be justified in laboring with all possible exertions and vehemence to obtain their wishes; since after they have succeeded, they will be secure for the future, being enriched by offerings from matrons, riding in carriages, dressing splendidly, and feasting luxuriously, so that their entertainment surpassed even royal banquets. [123:4]

Damasus gained the title of Auriscalpius Matronarum, ladies' ear-scratcher. [123:5] He died of fever, and the Romish Church still invokes the aid of this saintly vicar of God in fever cases. [123:6]
