    What is TRUTH? 'The USS Liberty'

    in Culture

    The Israelis attack on the USS Liberty in 1967 is one of the most blatant acts of war ever happening on an American ship especially by a supposedly "friendly" country.   Why did this happen?
    Why does there seem to be a coverup even after all these years?  We will be discussing these issues and play some interesting interviews.

    Military Monday With John D. Gresham and Zenith Press Author Phil Keith

    in History

    USS Lexington (CV 2), along with her sister ship, USS Saratoga (CV 3), were America's first real aircraft carriers, and genuine wonders of the world we were commissioned in the late 1920s. Converted from a pair of battlecruiser hulls made surplus by the Washington Naval Treaty, the two ships were the largest, most powerful, and fastest warships in the world. Able to carry and operate up to 90 aircraft, twice as many as any of the contemporary British and Japanese aircraft carriers, Lexington and her sister ship were the platforms where the U.S. Navy learned to take airpower out to sea. But Lexington was more than just a ship, for she also was a home and a schoolhouse for the men who served aboard her. As American's aircraft carrier fleet grew prior to World War II, Lexington and her sister were the ships where the men who would crew those new carriers learned their trades. In addition, some of the U.S. Navy's greatest leaders in World War II were captains aboard the Lexington, including Adm. Ernest J. King and Rear Adm. Forrest Sherman. And even though Lexington was lost at the Battle of the Coral Sea in May 1942, her loss taught critical damage control lessons that are still used today.


    To learn more about "Lady Lex," tune in at 1 PM EDT for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) hosted by author, historian, journalist and documentary filmmaker John D. Gresham (@greshamj01). John's guest this week is Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press) author Phil Keith, who has written a new book, STAY THE RISING SUN, chronicles the story of the Lexington to her sinking in the Coral Sea.

    in Christianity

    2. A Shiite rebel leader in Yemen vowed to not surrender amid Saudi-led airstrikes in a rambling speech that rejected U.N. efforts to halt violence there, even as the political party of the country’s former leader welcomed international efforts for a cease-fire.


    3. A tsunami as big as one metre was forecast to hit the Okinawa island chain after a 6.8 magnitude earthquake struck far-southern Japan. 


    4. The first French weapons from a $3 billion Saudi-funded program will arrived in Lebanon on Monday as allies seek to bolster the country’s defenses against the Islamic State group and other jihadists pressing along its Syrian border. 


    5. A senior commander in Iran’s Revolutionary Guard said on Sunday that international nuclear inspectors will be barred from all Iranian military sites under any deal with world powers, setting up a possible standoff as negotiators try to reach a final deal.

    The prophetic passage of Scripture we are looking at today is Joshua 10:7-10 which reads: "So Joshua ascended from Gilgal, he, and all the people of war with him, and all the mighty men of valour. And the Lord said unto Joshua, Fear them not: for I have delivered them into thine hand; there shall not a man of them stand before thee. Joshua therefore came unto them suddenly, and went up from Gilgal all night. And the Lord discomfited them before Israel, and slew them with a great slaughter at Gibeon, and chased them along the way that goeth up to Bethhoron, and smote them to Azekah, and unto Makkedah.”
