The case of a perpetually angry loner accused of sexually assaulting and murdering a jogger in Queens, New York, has been declared a mistrial. On the last day of the emotional trial Tuesday, prosecutors said Chanel Lewis, 22, (top) had no girlfriend, no friends, no job and was 'angry all the time' when he decided to vent that anger on 30-year-old Karina Vetrano (bottom), killing her in an otherwise random attack in August 2016. 'On this day he took his anger out on a pretty young woman, a girl in a halter top', District Attorney Brad Leventhal said. A mistrial was declared Tuesday evening. Jurors said they were split and that it didn't seem as though they would make progress one way or another by deliberating any further. Vetrano is seen inset in surveillance footage shortly before she was attacked.
Johan Huibers' (bottom left) Biblical boat complete with wooden animals, was constructed six years ago at the cost of nearly $1.6million (over £1million), and is currently a popular attraction in Dordrecht, south of Amsterdam. But Huibers told JTA earlier this month that he wants to take his creation to 'God's land', and is seeking donations from good Samaritans to get him there. Huibers planned to take the ship to Israel soon after its completion, but wildfires in Israel torpedoed the journey. Now he no longer has the approximately $1.3 million necessary for getting there.

I know that many readers will not believe these myths, but regardless, we should know them! However before you reject this fable, understand that this "fable" is AT LEAST 1700 years old. Many church fathers retold this story. The Queen of England accepts this story... So tell me, why doesn't Hollywood make this story? Why aren't these fables recounted? Is it that Satan does not want us to know who we really are? I think it is.

The Link with England
Historic writings support the belief that in 37 A.D. Christ’s great uncle, St Joseph of Arimathea, and followed by the apostle St Simon Zelotes, and later by St Paul of Tarsus with other disciples (according to the Pseudo-Pauline apocrypha: “Acts 29” - from the Sonnini manuscript, on hearing of Jewish Christians settling in Britain, Paul of Tarsus travelled there via Spain from Rome, this is a disputed text but still in antiquity), came to Britannia, to erect the first Christian Church outside Jerusalem, there has been a Church of England (Britannia) ever since although it’s affiliations, allegiances and doctrines have been moderated and switched between Rome and England several times throughout its history:
(i.e. First Christian Church in Britain 37 AD, Martyrdom of St. Simon Zelotes “Bishop of the Britons” 44 A.D., Silurian battles against Romans 52 - 53 A.D., Suetonius Paulinus attacks Western Britons and Druidic and Christian centres of learning 59 - 62 A.D., Boudicea (Iceni) Rebellion 61 - 63 A.D., Phagan and Deruvian mission 167 A.D., King Lucius became Christian 170 A.D., St Alban - Martyred 209 A.D., Constantine proclaimed Emperor at York 306 A.D., three British Bishops attend the Synod of Arles 314 A.D., Early Arianism 319 - 586 A.D., St Augustine 597 A.D., Synod of Whitby 664 A.D., Great Schism 1054 (concluded 1472), Lombardy 1061, Norman Conquest 1066, Ecclesia Scotticana 1218, Ecclesia Anglicana 1246, Schism (Western Church) 1378 - 1417, John Clerk 1521, Henrician Schism (Reformation) 1534, BsCP 1549 and 1552, 42 Articles of Faith 1553, 39 Articles of Faith 1563, Second Schism (Anglicanism independent of Rome) 1570, Puritan abolition of Anglicanism 1649 - 1660, BCP 1662, Arian Movement (Church of England) 1707 - 1747, Catholic Relief Act 1778, Oxford Movement 1833 - 1845, 2nd Vatican Council 1962 - 65);
The fact that there are records of Christian centres of learning in Britannia, during the Roman persecutions, of three British Bishops from: York, London and probably Lincoln, were recorded as being present at the Council of Arles in 314 AD proves that there was already an established Church in Britannia at this time and as this pre-dates the Roman Catholic heresy the early Church of England had its origins in original Catholicism. Therefore the pre-664 AD Church in Britannia had to be Arian in Christological belief!
Christianity in Britannia began during the first century and existed autonomously, independent of the Church of Rome until the Synod of Whitby in the middle ages. Although Anglicanism fell victim to Roman heresy, be it amid protest, the Arian Catholic Church has declared that Anglican and Anglican Catholic ordinations will be recognised in principle for clergy wishing to repent of their heresy and convert to the Arian Catholic Church.
We are hearing talk about a NATO for the pro-western Muslim nations of Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, UAE and among others. The more secular Muslim nations appear to be the friendliest to the USA, yet when we look into their history, some have armed the very enemies that have attacked us. All the hijackers on 9-11 were from Saudi Arabia. What does this mean, and could what seems to be a great idea, turn into a problem. We know that the Bible predicts that during the end times, two world powers will clash. One of those powers is the 10 nation Beast of Revelation, which is a revitalized Holy Roman European Nation, that will be led by an antichrist figure. This kingdom is called in the book of Daniel as "the king of the north." However, Daniel also mentions another world power.... The king of the south(a great United States of Muslim nations- from Iran-North Africa). You can read the entire battle in Daniel 11, who would play a pivotal role through history and just before Christ’s return. Who is the king of the South?
The phrase “king of the south” is found in the Bible in only one location—Daniel 11, which is also the chapter containing the most detailed prophecy in the Bible. The first mention of this ruler is found in verse 5, where we find that “the king of the South shall become strong” and that “His dominion shall be a great dominion.” The purpose of Daniel's prophecy was for us today to know what will happen to the Jewish people—Daniel’s people—at the end of this age, before the return of Jesus Christ. Given that the prophecy is written from a Jewish perspective, directions such as south or north are given in relation to Jerusalem, the ancient capital of the kingdom of Judah. So the “king of the south” was located to the south of Jerusalem, whereas the king of the north was located north of Jerusalem (Europe).
Some time in the past, the locations of these two powers changed over the years. Remember Daniel wrote this chapter which foretold of the rest of human history, some 2500 years ago! In one chapter, 2,500 years pass!
Foreword by Bob Barney: The Bible clearly identifies Europe as the Beast of Revelation and the King of the North. For years, Bible scholars who know this has been waiting for Europe to reawaken it's Nazi past and find a strongman to lead a newly yet to be formed Holy Roman Empire, with recognition from the Pope and led by Germany. Modern day Germany are the people that the Bible refers to as the Assyrians. Yesterday, Europe began to get closer to their destiny...
Make no doubt about it, there will be a "strongman" of Europe. He will be a man, not a woman. When he appears (and I don't know when) he will convince the civilized world that he is the greatest person who will have ever lived. He will be more popular than Jesus, and will fool many people. In fact, Jesus said that unless God loved His elect, even they would be deceived! Paul calls this evil man "The man of lawlessness." The man of lawlessness in 2 Thessalonians 2:1–12 is an antichrist who will come on the world stage at the beginning of the Day of the Lord. This Day, sometimes called the “end times.” He is given the title “man of lawlessness” because he will oppose God's Law, just as the Catholic Church and most so-called Christian Churches do today! Daniel 7 speaks of this man as a “boastful” king who will “try to change the set times and the laws” (verses 11 and 25). He will come offering a false peace and prosperity to the civilized world and will with his media-star- personality, convince everyone that he is a great human being. He will be able to perform fake miracles, bring nations together in a global government, and align religiously with the Roman Church and the Pope, the False Prophet, and also an Antichrist. They will make a covenant with Israel for three and one-half years (cf. Daniel 9:27, where “seven” indicates seven years). In the middle of the seven years, the man of lawlessness will break his covenant with Israel, stop their sacrifices (Daniel 9:27), and enter the temple to set himself up as “god” and demand worship (2 Thessalonians 2:4). This is the “abomination that causes desolation” that Jesus spoke of in Mark 13:14.
Two beasts are described in Revelation chapter 13, one from the sea (vs. 1) and one from the land (vs. 11). With the beast out of the sea, we come to that one who, regardless of his claims as the white horse rider or peace maker, comes as a great source of darkness into the world. He comes not to save the world, but to damn the world. In essence, what we have in this chapter in the rise of the beast and the false prophet is nothing short of the ‘trinity from hell’ in that both are the product of the machinations of that old serpent, the devil or Satan.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said that European Union (EU) member states must be prepared to transfer powers over to Brussels at a debate on the ‘tensions’ between globalisation and national sovereignty.
“Nation states must today be prepared to give up their sovereignty,” Merkel said, speaking at an event organised by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Berlin on Wednesday.
“In an orderly fashion of course,” Merkel said, explaining that — while Germany had given up some of its sovereignty in order to join the EU, national parliaments were in charge of deciding whether to sign up to international treaties.
Trust and the willingness to compromise are vital in addressing tensions between sovereignty and globalisation, asserted the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) leader, highlighting the controversial UN migration pact, debate over which has continued to split her own party.
Merkel condemned the fact that, in discussions over whether Germany should join a fast-growing number of nations pulling out of the agreement, “there were [politicians] who believed that they could decide when these agreements are no longer valid because they are representing The People”. Read MORE

Brazil’s new foreign minister believes climate change is a Marxist plot
Ernesto Araújo has called climate science ‘dogma’ and bemoaned the ‘criminalisation’ of red meat, oil and heterosexual sex
Jonathan Watts Global environment editor Fri 16 Nov 2018 04.13 AEDT
Brazil’s president-elect Jair Bolsonaro has chosen a new foreign minister who believes climate change is part of a plot by “cultural Marxists” to stifle western economies and promote the growth of China.
Ernesto Araújo – until recently a mid-ranking official who blogs about the “criminalisation” of red meat, oil and heterosexual sex – will become the top diplomat of South America’s biggest nation, representing 200 million people and the greatest and most biodiverse forest on Earth, the Amazon.
His appointment, confirmed by Bolsonaro on Wednesday, is likely to send a chill through the global climate movement.
Brazil was where the international community first came together in 1992 to discuss reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. Its diplomats have played a crucial role in bridging the gap between rich and poor nations, particularly during the forging of the Parisagreement in 2015.
But when the new government takes power in January, the foreign ministry that leads that work will be headed by a man who claims climate science is merely “dogma”.
In his blog, Araújo states his goal is to “help Brazil and the world liberate themselves from globalist ideology”, which he sees as anti-Christian.
Naturally President Bolsonaro’s opponents are flinging the usual slurs – racist, dictator, anything else they can think of. But this time it isn’t working.
This all seems very familiar somehow.
One interesting thing I noticed, Google Translate doesn’t seem to work on Ernesto Araújo’s blog, at least when I try it. I was hoping to obtain a translated copy of the original statement about cultural marxism. If anyone speaks Brazilian Portuguese please post a translation in comments if you can find it.
Thirty years ago, George Paxinos noticed an unusual assortment of cells lurking near the brain stem -- but he didn't think much of it.
Going over the region in 2018, he was once again struck by it. Now Paxinos' new research suggests that cluster of cells is definitely important. In fact, it appears to be a completely unknown region of the human brain. The early suggestion is that this bundle of neurons may be responsible for fine motor control, dictating our ability to strum the guitar, write and play sports.
Professor Paxinos is one of the world's most respected "brain cartographers". He creates atlases of human and animal brains that allow neuroscientists, brain surgeons and clinicians to get a better grasp of just what makes up the thinking boxes in our skull.
Coming back to the region that he was originally interested in before publishing his first atlas 28 years ago led to the discovery of the tiny grouping of brain cells. He's crowned the new region "the Endorestiform nucleus" because of its location at the base of the brain in the restiform body. Read More
The Thanksgiving Code: Five Hidden Symbols of America’s Holiday
The real story of Thanksgiving reads like a Dan Brown novel. It involves a little-known web of secret societies, biblical imagery, presidential power, and lost books. A few years ago, I set out on a 10,000-mile journey through the hidden symbols of American life that became the basis for my new book, "America’s Prophet: Moses and the American Story." One afternoon I was invited to join the all-male, secret society based in Plymouth, Massachusetts that is the keeper of the Thanksgiving flame. Thanksgiving begins in America’s hometown when these men make their annual sail across Plymouth Harbor to the off-limits island where the pilgrims spent their first Sabbath. What I learned on this trip would forever change how viewed America’s holiday.

A letter newly-released from the FBI's archives may prove that DB Cooper - the 1971 hijacker last seen leaping out of a plane with a fortune in cash - survived his apparent death. The letter (seen right, excerpt inset), which was sent 17 days after the robbery appears to contain information about the hijacking that was not released into the public domain until 13 years later. If that's the case it might reveal not only that Cooper (seen in police sketch left) lived to tell the tale of his extraordinary heist, but that the FBI covered it up to hide their embarrassment at his escape, the leader of a team of private investigators told DailyMail.com.
Leiden, The Netherlands - The first Pilgrims of the first American Thanksgiving in 1621 were unusually devout – even by Puritan standards. They crossed the ocean on a conviction that "the Lord has more truth and light yet to break forth out of his holy Word," as pastor John Robinson said before they sailed from the Netherlands.
Yet the Pilgrim band that braved the Mayflower and shared deer and turkey with native Americans were also some of the most cosmopolitan and tolerant among the Puritan groups willing to brave the wilds of a new world.
Before going to Plymouth, the Mayflower group lived 11 years in the Dutch city of Leiden. Those years of exile in Leiden, where the Pilgrims worked, worshipped, and debated – amid hefty clashes of civilizations and belief in Europe – profoundly influenced their sensibilities in ways that have not been widely recognized.
Katarina Moller (pictured), 24, was making her first run in a jet dragster when she crashed Thursday night
A jet dragster driver who died in a crash in Florida last week was killed by debris that struck her helmet during her first run in a racing category that saw her reach speeds up to 200mph.
Katarina 'Kat' Moller, 24, was making her first run of an exhibition event in a jet dragster when she crashed at the Sebring International Raceway on Thursday night.
The Highlands County Sheriff's Office said Monday that the district's medical examiner has not issued a final autopsy report, but a preliminary investigation 'determined that a piece of debris impacted Moller's helmet, which is what caused her death'.
During the first of two scheduled exhibition runs, Moller’s dragster drifted from the left lane towards the center line, police said in a statement.
As it crossed the center line during the run, the dragster struck a timing device located between lanes at the drag racing finish line.
Police said a parachute was observed to have deployed at or around this same time.
'As the dragster continued down the track, it drifted further right, scraping the right side retaining barrier wall before coming to rest after a low-speed impact with a tire barrier near Turn One on the race track,' police said.
Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke backed President Donald Trump on the years of forest mismanagement that led to the California fires as Zinke joined Breitbart News Sunday radio with host Amanda House.
He suggested that even photos of the devastation don’t do justice to what it was like to see it in person. Pointing to years of neglect and dead and dying timber, he observed, “It was like a flamethrower of embers shooting through the forests.”
Zinke said many people were unprepared for the fire. He described situations where firefighters were fighting back fire encroaching on commercial buildings with people still inside of them.

According to the Holy Scriptures, there are two major resurrections of salvation coming. The first, to eternal-life spirit (see What Was The Lesson Of John 3:16?and the Fact Finder question below), will occur on the day of the Messiah's return. It will be composed of all of the people, from all time, who were given the means to understand the Truth and who accepted it by living a repentant life thereafter. Along with them will be those of that same category who will be alive that day - they will instantly be changed from physical life to spirit ("We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed"; see Those Who Won't Sleep).
"4:13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 4:15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 4:18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words." (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 KJV)
"15:20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.15:21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. 15:22For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 15:23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming." (1 Corinthians 15:20-23 KJV)
"15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. 15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed." (1 Corinthians 15:50-52 KJV)
The second resurrection will occur 1,000 years later, after those of the first resurrection "shall reign with him a thousand years" (see Why Love A Dictator? and the Fact Finder question below).
A wave of electrical activity in our brains called 'spreading depression' appears to mark the final moment before death, researchers have found.
Experts examining brain activity in dying patients observed a flurry of activity that appears to precede the fatal shutdown of our most vital organ.
The finding suggests that consciousness may still be present for many minutes after the rest of the body has stopped showing signs of life.

The finding suggests that consciousness may continue to work after for many minutes after the rest of the body has stopped showing signs of life. This graph shows reading taken by a depth electrodes which detected an initial and a second later period of electrical activity
A team of neurologists, including from the Charité–Universitätsmedizin Berlin, continuously monitored electrical signals in the brains of of nine people as they died.
Each of the patients - from Berlin, Germany, and Cincinnati, Ohio - had received fatal brain injuries and had 'do not resuscitate' orders.
Experts hoped that, by implanting electrodes in the brains of their test subjects, they could uncover the mechanisms and timing of events during the process of dying.
They found that even five minutes after a person’s heart stops beating their brain cells, or neurons, may still function.
Never have you seen indicated on tombstones that some of the bodies there were only the physical relics of souls which are now screaming in hell fire!
Yet, such is the belief of millions who confidently assume the teaching of a heavenly home, or an ever-burning hell.
No matter how sinfully the recently departed might have lived, many a pastor seems able to comfort distraught loved ones with the thought that, at the very last moment, cantankerous and crusty old Uncle Claude somehow made it through the pearly gates!
For over twenty-eight years, I have offered a certified cashier's check for $10,000 to anyone who can come up with the words "immortal soul," "When we get to heaven," "I will see you in heaven," and "We go to heaven when we die."
Not in all those twenty-eight years, with millions hearing my words, has a single person been able to claim the certified cashier's check for $10,000!

With a long history of the terror group encouraging wildland arson, al-Qaeda supporters circulated a new poster through media channels highlighting "California burning."
"They will question you about the mountains. Say: 'My Lord will scatter them as ashes,'" says the text citing the Quran, imposed over news photos from the blazes.
The al-Qaeda propaganda comes shortly after one of the many media groups supporting ISIS operations online claimed that the deadly wildfires in northern and southern California are retribution for coalition bombings in Syria.
The image circulated online by Al-Ansar Media uses a photo of a burning building and misspelled the state "kalifornia." MORE
Every Thanksgiving Time (The anniversary of this Hijacking) we get a new suspect.... Here is the latest
A new suspect has entered the decades-old DB Cooper hijacking mystery.
An anonymous US Army data analyst now believes the person who hijacked a commercial airplane in 1971 and parachuted from the aircraft with $200,000 cash is a deceased man named William J Smith.
The analyst turned his research in to the FBI this summer, claiming there were 'too many connections to simply be a coincidence' according to The Oregonian.
This comes amidsthundreds if not thousands of people investigating the case, claiming they have finally discovered the true identity of DB Cooper.
The man dubbed by the FBI as DB Cooper, who is one of the 20th century's most compelling masterminds, hijacked a Boeing 727 at Seattle-Tacoma airport and held its crew and passengers hostage with a bomb. READ MORE
Initially it did not appear that the much-hyped “blue wave” would be that impressive, but since election night we have seen race after race flip in favor of the Democrats.
In fact, vote totals have moved in favor of the Democratic candidate in almost every race that was not officially settled on November 6th. As a result, it has now become clear that a “blue wave” has materialized, and Republicans are scrambling to try to save some of the seats that are still being contested. The biggest prize is the Senate seat in Florida where a recount is currently being conducted. But there are also a number of House seats that are still up for grabs, and as you will see below, vote totals are rapidly moving in favor of the Democratic candidates in several of those races.
Since November 6th, the political landscape has shifted dramatically. The following summary of how things have changed since election night comes from Gateway Pundit…
