On the Skirts of Jacobs Trouble; It is War on Prophecy Headline News
Chinese officials take to churches in an effort to remove the brazen symbols of faith. In China it could be the worst thing you could do, let a cross stand atop a church building. So the fight continues, Christians on the one side bent on defending their crosses and churches and officials bent on taking them down. It is war! In Nigerian the question is asked how so many missing schoolgirls captured by Islamic radicals can go unnoticed by so many. The Parents of some of these schoolgirls have also died waiting. The danger and war continues for these poor defenseless communities in Africa. The war goes on. In Israel the war continues to stop Hamas who is bent on firing rockets and killing innocent citizens. They hate Israel and want Israel removed. The death and war heat up, the battle continues while the world takes the side of the Poor Palestinians who allow Hamas to bring death to their doorstep. Instead of pushing economic reform and creating jobs, they pass their time teaching their children “blood slogans to kill jews”. It is a life built on blood and such a life will bring a curse of blood. There will be no peace for them until they stop the blood libel!
Army Colonel Gilberto Villahermosa served for 33 years and has traveled extensively throughout Afghanistan, first in 1995, when he entered the country for discussions with Tajik rebels; then as the Executive Officer for the Commander of NATO’s International Security and Assistance Force (ISAF) and the U.S. Senior National Representative to NATO in Kabul (2004-2005); and finally with the United States Central Command in 2012.
As the Senior Defense Official and Defense Attaché in Yemen he experienced first-hand Al Qaeda’s 17 September 2008 attack on the U.S. Embassy in Sana’a which killed more than a dozen people, developed America’s counter-terrorism centric engagement strategy, which prevented an Al Qaeda tipping point in the region in 2009, and grew the military budget from $4 to almost $200 million a year, while overseeing a U.S. Military Group of more than 150 military personnel.
Gilberto Villahermosa is a Published Author and experienced Public Speaker. He is the author of “Honor and Fidelity. The 65th Infantry in Korea” and “Hitler’s Paratrooper. The Life and Battles of Rudolph Witzig”. His third book, “Hitler’s Paratroopers in Normandy. The German II Parachute Corps in the Battle for France 1944” is due to be published this Summer by Frontline Books in London.
Colonel Villahermosa is also the On-Camera Historian for the PBS award-winning documentary “The Borinqueneers”, which details the trials and tribulations of the Puerto Rico Regiment in the Korean War.
On June 6th, 1944, the largest armada ever assembled left England for the Normandy coast of France. The Allied invasion of Europe was the greatest feat of arms in human history. It was the beginning of the end of Hitler's "Fortress Europe."
Join ConservativeNationMedia.com G.M. and host Duke Brooks in a conversation with author and History Channel expert Barrett Tillman ("D-Day Encyclopaedia") and Navy veteran and Hollywood screenwriter Tom Cleaver ("Fabled Fifteen"). Tonight's special program will be about history, not politics, and, as always, your calls are welcomed!
On the 70th anniversary of the Allied landing on Normandy's coast, known as D-Day, which was Friday, June 6, Carolyn looks at the possibility of treason as the reason for the poor Wehrmacht response to the invasion. Highlights include:
Generals and even Field Marshals serving in Northwest France in anticipation of the 1944 invasion were the same ones who participated in the July 20, 1944 assassination attempt on Hitler;
Most likely of all to be helping the enemy was Lt. General Hans Spiedel, FM Erwin Rommel's Chief of Staff, who had authority while Rommel was away and was slow to pass on information;
An unusual number of key leaders were away from their headquarters on June 6, but the weather was thought unfavorable for a landing;
Hans Spiedel was released by the French after the war and in 1957 was named Commander of the Allied Forces, Central Europe, an important NATO post, held until 1963;
The last installment of Oblt. Leopold Wenger's letters from the front have been published - comments are welcomre.
D-Day: Honoring the men who saved the World.
Seventy years ago today, the United States, UK and Canada embarked on the largest amphibious operation in the History of the World. The Normandy Landings (codenamed Operation Neptune) consisted of 24k Allied troops landing in airborne assaults and 136k troops storming the beaches of Northern France. Join us tonight for the Backstory on D-Day. You will hear the accounts of some heroes who survived and we will discuss D-Day's role in defeating the German War Machine.

I started this chapter questioning if a mason was naturally curious and wanting to discover the mysteries. But I thought better of that. Some are; many are not. It is esoteric and requires study, asking important, essential questions. If you hear someone talking about enjoying the journey- should we run away...fast? What makes us think, the path to enlightenment is either fun or easy? Did you enjoy reaching the summit of Everest; the journey to the beaches of Normandy or sailing the ocean? We often here it but it seems a weak question in the face of such accomplishments- were you happy? What of motivation; of commitment; of challenges? It is effort required that distinguishes those who do from those who do not. We have no idea beforehand, even with anticipation in our pocket, how we might respond to the moment of truth, until we get there. What we do know is that it deeply understand something is a unique experience. We can agree that something deep happens when a mind see existence for what it is.
Freemasonry is a blend. Part reinactment of ritual. Ritual lets us share experience. It is of the past and from the past relived in the moment. Another part focuses on the future at the door of knowledge. If we choose to make it our laboratory, we take on responsibility to proceed knowledgably; to study, committ attentiveness to the history of religion, philosophy and influences on thought. We are not born understanding metaphor or allegory or enigma. We must acquire such knowledge. As we become an alchemist we learn new skills with unfamiliar terms just as any apprentice does. What does it all mean?
The 70th Anniversary of D-Day Joe celebrates with clips and stories.

Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
A look at how history was changed 70 years ago today on the beaches of France.
