Russia Takes The Crimea As Obama Stands Helpless On The Sideline.


SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine (Reuters) – Crimea’s parliament voted to join Russia on Thursday and its Moscow-backed government set a referendum within 10 days on the decision in a dramatic escalation of the crisis over the Ukrainian Black Sea peninsula.

The sudden acceleration of moves to bring Crimea, which has an ethnic Russian majority and has effectively been seized by Russian forces, formally under Moscow’s rule came as European Union leaders gathered for an emergency summit to find ways to pressure Russia to back down.

U.S. President Barack Obama took steps to punish those involved in threatening the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, ordering the freezing of their U.S. assets and a ban on travel into the United States.

The U.S. Navy announced a guided-missile destroyer, the USS Truxton, was heading to the Black Sea in what it said was a long-planned training exercise and not a show of force.

Israel Unveils ‘Iron Beam’ Laser Defense System.


Israel yesterday unveiled its anticipated missile shield known as Iron Beam that uses a laser to “superheat” the warheads of short-range rockets, mortar bombs, and drones and blow them up in flight.

The first-of-its-kind system was shown off for the first time at the annual Singapore Air Show, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

Israel-based developer Rafael Advanced Defense Systems said Iron Beam will be operational next year.

Iron Beam is designed to handle threats that fly on too small a trajectory for longer-range Iron Dome, the Rafael-developed interceptor credited with an 80 percent success rate against rockets fired by Palestinian militants, The Jerusalem Post reported.

With its maximum interception range of 4.5 miles, Iron Beam would intercept rockets, mortar and artillery shells, and drones coming from Hamas in Gaza or Hezbollah in Lebanon — a vital capability for the security of vulnerable towns and kibbutz settlements along the border, the Free Beacon noted.

American funding was involved, the newspaper said, and has been tested successfully.

Advantages for Iron Beam are that it can be mounted on a single truck operating with another truck carrying the radar equipment, and that each laser blast costs several hundred dollars compared with Iron Dome anti-rockets that cost tens of thousands of dollars each, the Free Beacon reported.

Israel is also developing an interceptor known as David’s Sling for medium-range rockets, and the Arrow System against ballistic missiles like those in Iran’s arsenal, the Free Beacon reported.

The U.S. Navy has announced a laser system will be installed this year on a transport vessel, the USS Ponce, for testing. A spokesman for the U.S. Naval Sea Systems Command, Chris Johnson, told the Free Beacon if the Navy moves forward on the project “the first operational weapons could enter the fleet between 2017 and 2021.”

US Navy Blimp Hovering Over Baltimore Conducting Aerial Mapping In Fema Region III.


Preparing America for FEMA interment camps

Germany, as a nation, watched as Hitler slowly rose to power. At each step along the way he left open clues for whoever was watching and paying attention to see what was truly going on. Hitler wrote nearly his entire manifesto for what he planned to do to Germany in his ghost-written book Mein Kampf. Then the curtain rose, and Nazi Germany was born, seeminly out of nowhere.

RELATED STORY: Barack Hussein Obama and the Rise Of Hitler

In Obama’s America in 2013, there are the same ample and open clues for those who war watching and paying attention. The blimp now hovering over Baltimore, Maryland is doing aerial mapping for FEMA Region III.

Just remember this: Hitler’s concentration camps were not something he readily admitted to. Every step along the way he denied, denied and denied as the souls of over 11,000,000 people perished in them. The America government will deny, deny and deny the coming FEMA Camps every step along the way right up to the very moment YOU find yourself living in one, waiting to be executed.

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — You may have noticed an unusual sight over the Baltimore area in the last few days—a Navy balloon hovering in the sky. Christie Ileto explains what the blimp is doing.

The Navy is conducting aerial mapping over Baltimore, and it’s caught the eye of many residents far below.

If you’ve looked up lately, you may have spotted a U.S. Navy blimp hiding in the clouds, or hovering over Baltimore’s harbor on clear sunny days.

“I’ve been seeing it all week. Like, every day,” said Ashley Bradley. Almost 200-feet long, it’s flying over Baltimore.

“Me and my friends were actually talking about it and wondering what it was,” Bradley said.

“I was coming down 95 and I was like, ‘what is with that blimp?’” said Dennis McGill.

The U.S. Navy research laboratory says the blimp is a government research airship conducting aerial mapping, and that the MZ-3A lighter than air blimp began roaming above the D.C. area on September 21 and can remain stationary for more than 12 hours.

The blimp is mapping in the flight restriction zones around Washington D.C. It includes places like the Department of Agriculture and at some of ourmajor airports like BWI.

YouTube video even shows the blimp propelled by two 180 horsepower engines, landing as far west as the Frederick Municipal Airport.

The “Baltimore Blimp” as it’s being called online has even sparked Twitter discussions. People want to know what it’s doing in the sky—others are just “blimp watching.”

“Usually when they have a football game or something you see a blimp. But this one was, like, way high,” McGill said. But the blimp won’t be up for much longer. The research lab says after October 5, it’s flying away.

When the mission is complete, pilots will fly the blimp north to a base in New Jersey. Right now, it is stationed at the Naval Air Station in the Patuxent River. source – CBS/Baltimore.

Belief – It’s A Choice as Much as a Feeling!.


boats

“Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, ‘I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!'” -Mark 9:24

         Dr. Daniel Poling, a greatly respected churchman, had a son, Clark, who enlisted in World War II as a Baptist chaplain in the U.S. Navy.He served during the war on the Dorchester along with George Fox, a Methodist chaplain, Alexander Goode, a rabbinical chaplain, and John Washington, a Roman Catholic chaplain.

When the Dorchester was struck and was sinking, these four lieutenants gave their lifejackets to other men, helped them into lifeboats, and were seen praying as the ship went under.

Dr. Poling, upon hearing of the loss of his son, was consumed with grief.

He faced a true faith crisis.

This respected man of God had doubts. Was God there? If, so did He care?

One morning he woke up and forced himself to look out the window.

Without feeling anything, he managed to mutter, “I believe.”

The next morning he repeated this behavior. He went to the window and declared without feeling, “I believe.”

After doing this for several mornings and several weeks, the affirmation became stronger and stronger, and one morning he realized, “I DO believe!”
Sometimes belief is a choice. It is always a choice that God honors. Choose to believe today – anyway!

      *                       *                      *

PRAYER:

Lord, I believe!

I believe!

I believe!

I choose to believe in You today and every day!

Help, Thou, my unbelief.

Thank You! Amen.

     *                       *                      *   

   

Have you ever had to choose to believe – even when you couldn’t feel it? Did it help you?
