7 reasons every American should rally behind Herschel Walker

Walker is a man of faith who has lived most of his life as a committed Christian. No man is perfect, including me. George Washington was absolutely right when he said, "Perfection falls not to the lot of humanity." "Herschel's story is one of redemption and hope,"...

Water, the miraculous proof of God's existence

By Bob Barney: Do you believe in a creator God? Did the universe arise from chaos? Are there clues that prove that a DIVINE FORCE was behind the creation of the universe and if so, what are such clues? Most atheists' arguments come from a deep Ignorance of Natural Law! Here is a small lesson on the Divine design behind water! Most of our planet is covered with water. The oceans and seas make up three fourths of the earth's surface while the land itself contains countless numbers of rivers and lakes. The snow and ice on the planet are water in its frozen form. A substantial part of the earth's water is in the sky, just as the Bible claims in Genesis chapter 1.

You see, every cloud contains millions–of tons of water in the form of vapor.  From time to time, some of this water vapor turns into drops of liquid and falls to the ground; in other words, it rains. Even the air you're breathing now contains water vapor. Life can exist without water - everyone admits that, but are you aware that water itself has miraculous properties that without those properties, life could not exist on earth? The most comprehensive analysis of the suitability of water for life was to come from Lawrence Henderson, a professor in the Department of Biological Chemistry of Harvard University. In his book, "The Fitness of the Environment", which some were later to call "the most important scientific work of the first quarter of the 20th century", Henderson makes these observations about water:1) Except for water, all other known solids decrease in size as they grow colder. This is true of all known liquids as well: 2) as their temperatures decrease, they lose volume. As volume decreases, density increases and thus the colder parts of the liquid become heavier.

This Week in History ~ The first-ever U.S. car race in 1895 was survival of the fittest

His most famous, of course, was the second Motor Wagon, winner of the first American car race in 1895.

By Jeff Peek of Hagerty Media

It’s been said that the first car race was held shortly after the second car was built, but since that’s impossible to document, we’ll go with what we know: 125 years ago this past weekend, the United States’ first official car race was held on cold and snowy Thanksgiving Day in Illinois. And the winner was … a Duryea Motor Wagon. Not a name that leaps to mind when you think of motorsports success, but certainly a key player in automotive history.

Although brothers Charles and Frank Duryea built motor cars together for less than 10 years before going their separate ways, they created a superior machine for the era. And in winning the Chicago Times-Herald “motocycle” race (yes, motocycle) on November 28, 1895, the two may have also created the “win on Sunday, sell on Monday” automotive business mentality.

The Duryea brothers completed their first one-cylinder, four-horsepower Duryea Motor Wagon in September, 1893, in Springfield, Massachusetts. The second Duryea Motor Wagon, built the following year, was the one entered in the legendary race.

Years later, while recalling how it all began—the race, not the car—founder H.H. Kohlsaat wrote in a 1941 issue of The Saturday Evening Post that the Chicago contest was inspired by the Paris-Rouen race he had seen in France in 1894. The stateside contest was originally planned for July 4, 1895, and Kohlsaat convinced the Times-Herald to put up a whopping $5000 in prize money—the equivalent of more than $135,000 today.

At Kohlsaat’s urging, President Grover Cleveland appointed a member of the War Department to supervise the event, based on the opinion that motor vehicles would be of the most use in the military and as commercial trucks. Some 60 contestants signed up, but applicants begged Kohlsaat for more time, so the race was pushed to Labor Day. It was later postponed again and rescheduled for Thanksgiving.

On November 2, a bit of a warm-up match was set between the Duryea and H. Mueller Benz’s Gasoline Motor Car (from Decatur, Illinois). Mueller was the only finisher, as the Duryea crashed into a ditch while trying to avoid a team of horses and broke a wheel. Repairs were made on the car in time to complete in the actual race 26 days later.

When November 28 arrived, it was greeted by two inches of snow and brisk wind, which whittled an already small field. That morning only six cars took off on an out-and back course from Chicago to Evanston, a race of 52.4 miles: the Duryea; three Benz cars (one sponsored by R.H. Macy’s department store in New York), and two electrics.

The tires of all six cars were wrapped in twine to improve traction. That didn’t do much for the electrics, whose batteries died almost immediately after the race began. With the entrants fighting through snowdrifts, the Duryea—with Frank at the wheel—passed the Macy’s car just past the halfway mark to take the lead—for good, as it turned out. Pushing to keep up, the Macy’s car first collided with a sleigh and then a streetcar, which damaged its steering. Another Benz also failed to finish.

Smoking one cigarette a day and a regular tot of whisky: How couple stayed married for 86 years

An Article from over 10 years ago.....

A couple celebrated their 86th wedding anniversary yesterday and offered some words of advice.

Karam Chand, 106, who enjoys a daily cigarette and a regular tot of whisky, said: ‘Eat and drink what you want, but in moderation.’ The former mill worker added: ‘I have never held back from enjoying my life.’

While his 99-year-old wife Kartari is looking forward to getting her telegram from the Queen next year, she is conscious of the need to stay fit and healthy.

Happily ever after: Karam and Kartari Chand married in India in 1925 and moved to Britain in the Sixties

She added: 'We have always eaten good wholesome food, there's nothing artificial in our diet but things like ghee (clarified butter), milk and fresh yogurt are what we like.

'We know that being married for 86 years is a blessing, but equally we will be ready to go when it's time, it's all up to the will of God, but we really have lived a good life.' 

The couple from Bradford, West Yorkshire, have eight children, 27 grandchildren and  23 great-grandchildren.

It is thought the couple could be the UK's longest married husband and wife.

Karam, who was born in a small rural village in northern India in 1905 kept with local custom of the time and married at a young age.

Katari was also born in the Punjabi district in 1912 and they married in typical Sikh ceremony in 1925.

Mauna Loa eruption: Hawaii Big Island volcano erupting first time in 38 years as ash fall warnings issued

Mauna Loa, the world’s largest active volcano located in Hawaii, began erupting late Sunday night, prompting officials to issue a warning to residents who live in the surrounding area of possible lava flow.

by Cami Mondeaux, Breaking News Reporter

Hawaii officials issued an emergency alert around 11:30 p.m. local time on Sunday, warning that a volcanic eruption had been detected inside Hawaii Volcanoes National Park near the summit caldera of Mauna Loa. Officials warned the eruption could cause volcanic gas and ash to be carried by the winds but confirmed that “lava flows are contained within the summit area and are not threatening downslope communities.”


“Residents at risk from Mauna Loa lava flows should review preparedness and refer to Hawai‘i County Civil Defense information for further guidance,” the U.S. Geological Survey said in its warning to residents. “Based on past events, the early stages of a Mauna Loa eruption can be very dynamic and the location and advance of lava flows can change rapidly.”

The eruption comes after the active volcano was put into a “state of heightened unrest” due to a magnitude 5.0 earthquake that hit in mid-October. Although the volcano did not erupt in the immediate aftermath of the earthquake, it’s unclear whether that incident contributed to the eruption on Sunday.

Mauna Loa has erupted 33 times since 1843, with its last eruption being recorded in 1984. During that incident, lava flow from the volcano came within 4.5 miles of the island’s largest town, Hilo, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory will coordinate with other emergency management partners to monitor the volcanic activity, it said in the emergency alert. Officials also confirmed it will conduct an overflight to assess future hazards.


CDC spending another $55 million to research tobacco for absurd reason

Working on 'advancing health equity'

By Adam Andrzejewski @Real Clear Wire

For more than half a century, the American public has known that smoking tobacco can cause cancer and lead to an early death. It seems that isn’t enough for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which is awarding at least $55 million next year for more research in that area.

The Division of Cancer Prevention and Control and the Office of Smoking and Health will give $40 million to “a consortium of population-specific, public health-oriented, national networks to impact tobacco-related and cancer health disparities among specific populations.”

We already know that different populations of Americans smoke more than others — native Americans and some Hispanic communities have high rates of cigarette smoking, and black smokers are much more likely to use menthol tobacco products, according to the American Lung Association.

But the grant is paying researchers in “national networks” $40 million to bring various groups together “with the goals of leveraging and pooling resources, supporting those groups in advancing health equity, and increasing implementation of culturally appropriate interventions deployed through a health equity lens.”

What’s needed, the grant summary argues, is “population-specific” ways to support prevention and control of tobacco use.

These “populations experiencing disparities” have been harmed by “generations of unfair and unjust policies and practices, including the tobacco industry’s aggressive target marketing to certain people and communities.”

Complete Guide to Cacao – The Superfood

Cacao is a super-food consisting of some very high-quality active ingredients; such as vitamins, antioxidants & minerals – ingredients which are disease fighting and anti-aging. History goes that that cacao was first discovered by people called the Olmecs – they noticed rats enjoying it very heartily, and then realized that this ‘stuff’ came from a tree producing the wonderful flavors of chocolate.

They were probably the first humans to eat of the cacao beans – later crushing the beans and adding spices and herbs; then cultivating it in their Mexican environment. Gradually the Mayans and Aztecs also cultivated cacao, even using it as a monetary and measuring unit. Cacao became noted as a symbol which meant abundance, and it went on to be used even in religious ceremonies.

History of Cacao

cacao history
Cacao- A Long and Exciting History

Drinking cacao was once deemed to be only a privilege that the rich could enjoy and sometimes embattled soldiers during wartime would drink it too. Then in 1502, Columbus saw his first glimpse of the cacao bean when he stopped over in Nicaragua.

Discovery of Brown Gold

However, the real importance of the ‘brown gold’ was only recognized when Hernando Cortez drank some of it with Montezuma, the famed Aztec emperor, and he brought it to his Spanish courts later in 1528. He also brought over the necessary equipment so that it could be brewed properly in his country. But still, it was not yet recognized for its importance even then.

It was in 1585 that a shipload of cacao beans was sent to the Iberian Peninsula from Spain, and this launched the cacao trade; after which chocolate shops were started which heralded in a demand for this delicious ‘nectar’ of the new world.

Food Of the Gods

  • the very first chocolate sweet appeared in 1674 in England; and
  • the powder came from the Dutch in 1828, chocolate bars from Great Britain in 1830 and later, chocolates with hazelnuts in. Switzerland followed with their famous Nestlé chocolates, and it was from 1830-1879 that Lindt would develop his chocolate fondant. Later the sweet maker, Hershey started producing chocolate at his Pennsylvania factory in the USA. (need to edit this section)

Today, chocolate is the most popular sweet throughout the world, and over 3 million tonnes of cacao beans are being consumed every year. Chocolate a natural aphrodisiac is also good for the heart and your brian.
No wonder the Aztecs and Mayans considered this gift the “food of the gods”


Cash for Commies: UK Sent Over £50 Million in Foreign Aid to China in 2021

Talk about being NUTS!  While wealthy China (who got rich off the west) is buying our debt as a profit center for their economy, leaders like Boris Johnson sent $80 billion dollars (50 English #'s) as foreign aide to China.   How much of that went back to Boris?  You know it did.  It's time the peoples of the world try their leaders for treason. In The USA for example: Under federal statute, a person guilty of treason against the United States “shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.” 18 U.S.C. § 2381.

So you are the opposite of other prostitutes. You pay your lovers instead of their paying you!

The supposedly cash-strapped British government sent over £50 million in foreign aid to Communist China last year despite previously committing to cut off all aid to the world’s second-largest economy, which boasts a massive space programme and nuclear arsenal.

According to figures released this week by the Foreign Office, £51.7 million in British taxpayers’ money was sent to China last year. While what exactly the money was spent on is yet to be released, the Daily Mail reports

I'm a sinner, you're a sinner, everybody you have ever met is a sinner

image from s17-us2.ixquick.comBY BOB BARNEY

According to the Bible, and to God (whom I try not to argue with very much), I am a sinner.  The fact is that you are a sinner, your best friends are sinners, so is Billy Graham and the Pope.  I am, just like every human ever born, except One, I am a carnal lust filled animal, who like the family dog, am physically attracted to my animalistic urges. I like looking at pretty girls, and I am 62 years old. I probably will continue this for a long time.  I understand fully well that without the help of God Almighty, I am just an animal in the body of a God-Like human trying to survive on instincts.  It is the living God that dwells inside of me that makes me different than an actual 'animal'. I unlike most on this earth today know this fact, and I am grateful for that knowledge. 

Sin is the breaking of God's Law.  That is the definition given in every Bible ever printed.  It reads in 1 John 3:4 "Everyone who commits sin also breaks the law; sin is the breaking of the Law."

Survival medicine: 14 Natural alternatives to antibiotics


(Natural News) The overuse of antibiotics can cause antibiotic resistance, which may be an issue when you are stuck in a long-term survival scenario and you don’t have access to medications.

If you are worried about antibiotic resistance, here are some natural alternatives to antibiotics. (h/t to

Apple cider vinegar (ACV)

Apple cider vinegar is a kitchen staple that is often used to make tangy salad dressings and vinaigrettes.

Studies have found that apple cider vinegar has antibacterial properties that can help kill or reduce the pathogen level of the bacteria that causes infections such as staph infections. It can also be used as an astringent to disinfect a wound.

Clove water

Clove water has been used in home remedies to treat common infections like mouth issues and intestinal issues. Data also suggests that cloves are antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial.

It’s best to use fresh organic clove leaves. Soak them for 12 hours in clean drinking water. Strain the water before drinking it to treat mouth issues and internal issues.

If you aren’t used to taking clove water, do not apply the liquid to your skin. Common side effects of topically applied clove may include:

  • Erection problems
  • Itching, rash
  • Mild skin irritation
  • Trouble having an orgasm (delayed ejaculation)

Colloidal silver

Colloidal silver was used before antibiotics were invented and some people still use the former against bacteria and microbes. Colloidal silver is a mixture of silver particles that have been suspended in a liquid.

You can use colloidal silver as a foot wash for athlete’s foot and as a mouth rinse for cold sores.

Exercise caution when ingesting colloidal silver because it may give your skin a permanent blue-grey hue.


Echinacea is used in traditional medicine to treat the common cold since it may help lessen the duration and severity of your cold symptoms.

You can use echinacea petals and leaves to make an infusion. Alternatively, you can make an echinacea decoction from the roots.

An echinacea infusion can be taken as a healing tea or as a supplement.


Garlic is an effective alternative to antibiotics because allicin, the oil in garlic that gives it its strong flavor, also gives it its antibiotic properties.

There are several ways to use garlic. The easiest way is to chew on a peeled, raw clove. Doing this means the oil gets directly absorbed into your bloodstream through your mouth. If the flavor of raw garlic is too strong for you, add a bit of olive oil or honey.

Alternatively, you can make some garlic honey by crushing and blending a few cloves of garlic into some honey.


Ginger is another powerful antibacterial alternative to antibiotics. Try using ginger as tea or crushed and mixed with honey for wound care.

To make ginger tea, boil several slices of fresh ginger root in water. Strain, then set aside to cool before drinking. Add a bit of honey if you don’t like the taste of plain ginger.


The Arctic lost to time: Amazing archive photos chart a daring 19th-century attempt to reach the North Pole

The Nansen Photographs tells the story of how 12 men set off from Norway in 1893 in a ship called Fram. The expedition was led by Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen, who loaded Fram with 3,000 bottles of beer. 'The expedition proved the theory of a current running across the Polar Sea from east to west,' the author says. Many of the diary entries that appear in the book have been translated into English for the very first time.

Amid much celebration, the Fram expedition set off from Kristiania (modern-day Oslo) on June 24, 1893, making four stops in Norway in Bergen, Trondheim, Tromso and Vardo, before arriving at Khabarova in Russia. Its next stop was Cape Tsjeljuskin in Russia, after which they continued east before heading north and allowing the ship to get locked in the drifting pack ice. This picture shows the moment that Nansen (pictured with a hat in his hand centre right) and the crew, standing aboard Fram, waved goodbye to onlookers in Bergen on July 2, 1893. The two days preceding this moment were filled with social events for the team of explorers - 'parties, music, speeches and dance'. The author says: 'The free flow of Champagne was especially appreciated by some of the crew'


It's an extraordinary tale of derring-do told in a mesmerising new book via fascinating archive pictures – and worthy of a Hollywood movie too.

The Nansen Photographs by Geir O Klover, published by Teneues, tells the story of 12 intrepid men, led by Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen, who set off from Norway in June 1893 with the aim of reaching the North Pole.

They sailed in a wooden ship called Fram - packed with skis, kayaks, very woolly jumpers and 3,000 bottles of beer - and braved attacks from polar bears and walruses.

During the ends-of-the-earth expedition, which lasted until August 1896, Nansen put to the test a theory that there was a current running from east to west across the Arctic Ocean. He hoped to reach the North Pole by allowing Fram to get trapped by the pack ice north of Siberia and drift across the ocean. The adventurer was disappointed when he discovered that the drifting Fram did not approach the North Pole, so together with his colleague, Fredrik Hjalmar Johansen, he left the ship and his crew and set out for their intended destination on skis. Though they never made it to the North Pole, Nansen reached a record northern latitude of 86 degrees and 14 minutes.

Throughout the expedition, along with his crew, he carried out a wealth of research into the Arctic and 'painstakingly measured depths to almost 4,000 metres (13,123ft)'. The author notes: 'The expedition proved the theory of a current running across the Polar Sea from east to west and that the earth's rotation probably influences the sea currents, which was later proved and named the Ekman Spiral.'

Every single recovered photograph taken during the expedition appears in the tome, and many of the diary entries that feature have been translated into English for the very first time. 'They illustrate in a touching, sometimes dismaying way how the participants went about their daily lives and carried out their research; what conflicts they fought out and how they ultimately brought the daring undertaking to a good end,' the publisher says. Scroll down to see 10 remarkable archival photographs that appear in the tome, brilliantly illustrating the daring mission undertaken by Nansen and his men...

Should You Celebrate Thanksgiving Day?

By David C Pack

Thanksgiving Day, as celebrated in North America, is a time to gather with family and friends to give thanks for the many blessings enjoyed by these nations and their citizens. However, to many people, its meaning is lost. It has become simply another day for huge meals, dinner parties, get-togethers or reunions. What does Thanksgiving mean to you?

Turkey dinners, cranberries, candied yams, stuffing, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie and family gatherings—these are all commonly associated with most Americans’ and Canadians’ yearly celebration of giving thanks—Thanksgiving Day!

RUSH: It's time for the traditional true story of Thanksgiving, as written by me in my second best seller of 2.5 million copies in hardback: See, I Told You So. "Chapter 6, Dead White Guys, or What the History Books Never Told You: The True Story of Thanksgiving -- The story of the Pilgrims begins in the early part of the seventeenth century (that's the 1600s for those of you in Rio Linda, California). The Church of England under King James I was persecuting anyone and everyone who did not recognize its absolute civil and spiritual authority. Those who challenged ecclesiastical authority and those who believed strongly in freedom of worship were hunted down, imprisoned, and sometimes executed for their beliefs. A group of separatists first fled to Holland and established a community.

"After eleven years, about forty of them agreed to make a perilous journey to the New World, where they would certainly face hardships, but could live and worship God according to the dictates of their own consciences. On August 1, 1620, the Mayflower set sail. It carried a total of 102 passengers, including forty Pilgrims led by William Bradford. On the journey, Bradford set up an agreement, a contract, that established just and equal laws for all members of the new community, irrespective of their religious beliefs. Where did the revolutionary ideas expressed in the Mayflower Compact come from? From the Bible. The Pilgrims were a people completely steeped in the lessons of the Old and New Testaments. They looked to the ancient Israelites for their example.
