MONDAY UPDATE: An immigrant from Bangladesh allegedly detonated a homemade bomb in New York, this morning. He had entered the United States using a F-4 family immigrant
"chain migration" visa. Following today's attack, the White House issued this statement:
"The President is concerned that Congress, particularly Democrats, have failed to take action in some places that we feel we could've prevented this. Specifically, the President's policy has called for an end to chain migration and if that had been in place, that would have prevented this individual from coming to the United States. So, the president is going to aggressively continue to push forth responsible immigration reform and ending chain migration would certainly be a part of that process."

'Main Street' Republicans press for no-strings DACA Amnesty......Pelosi and Democrats threaten government shutdown to get it! Pelosi calls enforcing existing laws, "reign of terror."
I hope you've been staying on top of your NumbersUSA action alerts this week.
The end of the year is fast approaching, and with it, a crisis. Thursday night, Congress passed a short-term funding bill to keep the government running for just two weeks, setting up a rush of back-door deals as Congress readies to leave for Christmas.
Democrats want the pre-Christmas spending bill to include a no-strings illegal-alien amnesty for around 700,000 DACA recipients, although this vague plan could reach 3 million or even more if Pelosi intends it to cover the broader "DREAM" category. They won't even support ending chain migration to keep that amnesty from more than tripling again. And many of them have pledged they'll shut down the government rather than pass a spending bill without an amnesty.
Rep. Nancy Pelosi spoke on the floor of the House yesterday threatening, "We are not leaving here without a DACA fix." By this, she means they will not break for Christmas without forcing an amnesty into the year-end spending bill.
If they aren't leaving town, then neither are we. NumbersUSA will be in the trenches making sure that Congress doesn't slip in an amnesty while the rest of the country is enjoying the holidays with their families and friends. But to stop them, we need your financial support.
Donate to DEFEAT DACA AMNESTY
We were looking forward to starting off the new year by fighting for the really fantastic legislation we've been telling you about like the RAISE Act and the Legal Workforce Act, but now we've got this costly battle that we must win. We need your support, urgently!
Rep. Pelosi stated, in fact, that "We are not going to turn this country into a reign of terror of domestic enforcement" by simply enforcing the laws that we already have on the books.
Thomas, those of us AGAINST open borders have to get loud right now. Help us keep the government from being held hostage by those demanding amnesty. I don't want you to feel defeated (especially heading into the holidays). I'm confident we can stop this. However, it won't stop itself. President Trump and Republican leaders Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan support a clean spending bill without amnesty. Sen. McConnell called efforts to tie a DACA amnesty to the spending bill a "dumb place" to be.
NumbersUSA has stopped every amnesty proposed in Congress this century, and with your help, we can beat this one, too. And we have such great promise for real good legislation that can turn back the tide on illegal immigration. But there is a unique danger here. It's not just the Democrats pushing for an amnesty.
Donate to DEFEAT DACA AMNESTY
Thirty-three Republicans led by Rep. Scott Taylor (VA02) and Rep. Dan Newhouse (WA04), calling themselves the "Republican Main Street Caucus", signed a letter on Tuesday to House Speaker Paul Ryan urging him that Congress should act "immediately" on a "permanent legislative solution for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients before the end of the year." They seem to prefer a total, unconditional surrender, putting off till later any improvements to the immigration system.
From the "Republican Main Street Caucus" letter sent Tuesday: "While we firmly believe Congress must work to address other issues within our broken immigration system, it is imperative that Republicans and Democrats come together to solve this problem now, and not wait until next year... Reaching across the aisle to protect DACA recipients before the holidays is the right thing to do."
In other words, 33 Republican representatives want to give a 700,000-person amnesty with NO strings attached. They say it's the "right thing to do". What do the American people get if the "Republican Main Street Caucus" plan becomes law?? A secure border? More border patrol and ICE agents? End of Chain Migration? End of the visa lottery? Mandatory E-Verify? NO!! NONE OF THE ABOVE. (Sound familiar?)
Here at NumbersUSA, we are holding off two groups: Dems that are holding government funding hostage for amnesty AND 33 GOP reps that want to give it away for free.
On Tuesday, when we found out these Republicans' names, our social media team sprang into action buying ads to let their constituents know what their Members of Congress are up to. We also mobilized the folks in these districts to call them out.
After the phones started ringing in their offices, the GOP Main Streeters started screaming in our ears, telling us to call off the barrage. Problem is, they haven't repented. They STILL want to give away an enormous no-strings amnesty.
Thomas, we are putting a stop to this. But it is taking a huge amount of resources. We had to advertise on Facebook and get our member's voices heard in their representative's offices.
Only NumbersUSA can work this fast and this big to keep Congress from going over the edge with an amnesty. But I have to have your help. We need generous donations to our Action Fund now!
This could be a time of great success in passing immigration reforms but is also a time of great peril.
We need your help now.

"Russia-China "Shaken To Very Core" As Trump Moves In For "Deep State" Kill Shot"
Kauilapele posted: "This is one that resonated prior to my reading the latest Ben Fulford report. Then Ben mentioned a very similar thing about Donald Rumsfeld. Here's a bit of what was in the full report (due out on 12-14-17): "...former U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsf"
This is one that resonated prior to my reading the latest Ben Fulford report. Then Ben mentioned a very similar thing about Donald Rumsfeld. Here’s a bit of what was in the full report (due out on 12-14-17):
“…former U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld has “flipped” after being confronted with proof that a company on which he was on the board of directors supplied North Korea with the technology needed to make plutonium THE essential ingredient of nuclear weapons, Pentagon sources say. “Rumsfeld was a Navy captain, and his flipping along with former Marine [Special Prosecutor Robert] Mueller would take down draft-dodging [former Vice-President] Dick Cheney, the Bushes, and Israel for 9/11 and other crimes,” the sources say.”
So the main reason I am posting this is because of the “Rumsfeld revelation”. It does appear that many of these people, like Rumsfeld, who were formerly afraid, or resistant to, coming out, are now coming out and helping to expose the cabal (NWO, Khazarians, etc.).
The old order, it’s falling apart (baby)!!
[Note: although I used to believe that these WDiM articles were disinfo, currently I believe they are at least in part, full of exposing information. As always, use that Higher Discernment.]
“According to this report, on 10 September 2001, the longtime Republican Party apparatchik [official in a large political organization] Donald Rumsfeld suddenly… held one of his first press conferences since his being sworn into office as the President George W. Bush regimes Secretary of Defense—and wherein he declared war on the Pentagon after his discovering $2.3 trillion was missing and unaccounted for… [Rumsfeld] remained unscathed by the Watergate Scandal… [and] achieved an unblemished reputation for his open honesty…
“In the aftermath of the 11 September 2001 attacks… diverting Secretary Rumsfeld from being able to discover what had happened to the missing $2.3 trillion — but that by late 2005 he began to reinvestigate — but with his suddenly being attacked, in early 2006, by what is now called the “Generals Revolt”—but which was, in fact, a “Deep State” plot to throw him out office…
As one of the rare President Richard Nixon regime officials who remained unscathed by the Watergate Scandal, this report details, Secretary Rumsfeld had achieved an unblemished reputation for his open honesty, and who prior to being appointed to lead the Pentagon, in 2001, by President Bush, had served as the Secretary of Defense for the President Gerald Ford regime, as well as his being President Ford’s White House Chief of Staff and his, also, having served as the US Ambassador to NATO.
Less than 24 hours after Secretary Rumsfeld declared war on the Pentagon in order to discover what had happened to the missing $2.3 trillion though, this report notes, the United States, including the Pentagon itself, was attacked on 11 September 2001—with the most accurate description of what had occurred being published by the globally recognized Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth non-profit organization made up of America’s top building experts, and who wrote:
On September 11, 2001, the three worst structural failures in modern history took place when World Trade Center Buildings 1, 2, and 7 suffered complete and rapid destruction.
In the aftermath of the tragedy, most members of the architecture and engineering community, as well as the general public, assumed that the buildings’ destruction had occurred as a result of the airplane impacts and fires. This view was reinforced by subsequent federal investigations, culminating in FEMA’s 2002 Building Performance Study and in the 2005 and 2008 reports by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
Since 9/11, however, independent researchers around the world have assembled a large body of evidence that overwhelmingly refutes the notion that airplane impacts and fires caused the destruction of the Twin Towers and WTC 7. This body of evidence, most of which FEMA and NIST omitted from their reports, instead supports the troubling conclusion that all three skyscrapers were destroyed in a process known as “controlled demolition,” where explosives and/or other devices are used to bring down a building.
In the aftermath of the 11 September 2001 attacks upon the World Trade Center and Pentagon, this report continues, America was plunged into war in both Afghanistanand Iraq diverting Secretary Rumsfeld from being able to discover what had happened to the missing $2.3 trillion—but that by late 2005 he began to reinvestigate—but with his suddenly being attacked, in early 2006, by what is now called the “Generals Revolt”—but which was, in fact, a “Deep State” plot to throw him out office—and which President Bush did on the day after the 2006 US Congressional elections that put the Democratic Party in power.
This report further notes that as President Trump delivers this “kill shot” to the “Deep State”, his other attacks upon this nefarious shadow government apparatus have become pure “Machiavellianism”—which is a word commonly used to describe the employment of cunning and duplicity in statecraft.
As one example of President Trump’s use of “cunning and duplicity” against his “Deep State” enemies, this report explains, were his video recorded remarks made this past January wherein he stated that one had to assume that all hotels had secret cameras installed in their rooms—and that SC intelligence analysts note that he is an expert in knowing about as it has long been known that all of Trump’s hotels and resorts, especially in the US, have long secretly audio and video recorded the predatory sexual lives of all of America’s top elites.
Prior to taking power, though, this report continues, the “secret recordings” Trump made of America’s debauched elites often found their way to one of his closest friends named David Pecker—who is the Chairman and CEO of American Media—of whose many publications include the tabloid newspapers National Examiner, Star and (most importantly) the National Enquirer—all of whom paid Trump for his celebrity “tips”—and who, in return, protected Trump’s carefully honed image.
Going from mere “Machiavellianism” against his “Deep State” enemies peddling the “Russiagate” fiction, though, this report details, President Trump has gone full “Kafkaesque” against all of these shadow government liars—and is the word commonly used to describe situations and/or circumstances having a nightmarishly complex, bizarre, or illogical quality about them.
As to why Special Counsel Mueller “stacked the deck” against President Trump by surrounding himself with Clinton-Obama loyalist US Department of Justiceprosecutors and FBI agents, this report continues, was to centralize them in a location away from the main headquarters of the US Justice Department and FBI—and where the most important criminal investigation in American history had been started by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) into the crimes of Hillary Clinton—and that current FBI Director Christopher Wray warned this week could very well re-open the entire case against her.
And while the Office of Inspector General has been quietly going about gathering their evidence against Hillary Clinton, this report notes, Special Counsel Mueller has, likewise, been quietly investigating all of the Clinton-Obama loyalist US Department of Justice prosecutors and FBI agents he had gathered around himself—none of whom knew (at least at the start) that they were all being investigated for violating a US federal law that states: “No employee may use his official authority or influence to interfere with or affect the result of an election.”
To the American people being allowed to know Special Counsel Mueller’s true goal of finding and destroying these “Deep State” operatives against President Trump, this report says, is not to be seen as their nations propaganda mainstream media still refuses to tell them the truth—with all of these people, instead, being fed continuous “lies of triumph” celebrating two guilty pleas for lying to the FBI and two indictments of close Trump associates—the crown jewel of which is former National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn having pled guilty to lying to the FBI—but whose only evidence for having done so being based on an “ambush interview” Flynn was tricked into doing by the now disgraced anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok.
As to everything presented to the US Federal Court against Trump associates by Special Counsel Mueller being “dead on arrival”, this report continues, American legal experts are noting that it would expose the United States vaunted legal system to both national and international ridicule should these cases continue—and as recently explained by the noted former award-winning US Federal Prosecutor Nick James, and who stated:
Under federal law, a prosecutor is required “to disclose exculpatory and impeachment information to criminal defendants and to seek a just result in every case.” Specifically, pursuant to Giglio v. United States, prosecutors are obligated to provide defendants with impeachment evidence, which includes, according to the DOJ’s guidelines, evidence of a witness’s biases, “[a]nimosity toward defendant,” or “[a]nimosity toward a group of which the defendant is a member or with which the defendant is affiliated.”
As a result, in any prosecution brought by Mueller against a Republican target, defense counsel would be entitled under the Constitution to all evidence in the government’s possession relevant to exploring the apparent biases of FBI agent Peter Strzok and his animosity toward Trump and the Republican Party.
This, in and of itself, could be a case-killer because it is very unlikely that Mueller or the DOJ would want defense counsel poring through all the records and documents, emails, and texts in the DOJ’s and Strzok’s possession revealing the agent’s biases since this could fatally undermine any other cases or investigations the agent has worked on—such as the FBI’s decision to recommend charging General Flynn with lying to federal agents even though Hillary Clinton’s besties, Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin, were given a free pass despite apparently doing the same thing.
Significantly, the fatal damage done to Mueller’s anti-Trump investigation does not only rest in the fact that defense counsel will be able to conduct an unlubricated prostate examination on the FBI’s key agent at trial. Instead, the real reason why Mueller will not risk a criminal trial is the lasting damage that would be done to the FBI’s reputation by having Strzok’s baggage brought into the daylight.
To expose the agent’s biases, defense counsel would have the opportunity to cross-examine the agent and his apparent mistress, an FBI lawyer who also worked on Mueller’s investigation and the Clinton email probe, about their exchanged messages showing support for Clinton and hostility to Trump.
Additionally, the agent’s wife, a high-profile attorney at another federal agency, apparently was a member of several pro-Obama and pro-Clinton Facebook groups and is a follower of a Facebook page called “We Voted for Hillary.”
As President Trump continues to run circles around his “Deep State” enemies with his “Machiavellianism-Kafkaesque” schemes, and his now preparing the “kill shot” against them by destroying their secret Pentagon funding, this report concludes, neither Russia or Chinese intelligence experts are convinced that he can survive the coming 9/11-type “false flag” attack being planned against him by this American shadow government—thus leading Russia and China to boost their defense cooperation and, should the worst occur, join forces to create a real global gold standard that would destroy the US Dollar—and hopefully stop World War III.
It’s become de rigeur for public figures and media personalities to repeat the tired mantra: Always believe the women. This refers, of course, to any accusation of sexual harassment, no matter how far in the past it took place and even if it was interpreted at the time as innocent flirting..........
It’s The Islamic State In Iraq And Syria (ISIS) Stupid
Despite three previous New York terrorist attacks, despite 9/11, it didn’t take long for CNN to blame this latest attack on President Trump. They reason that because he said the capital of Israel is Jerusalem and that’s where the American embassy belongs, that this has inflamed Islamists to these reactions. And this never would have happened if President Trump’s chain migration policy had been in place.........
The “Regulation Freedom” Amendment And Daniel Webster
We live in a time of constitutional illiteracy. A recent survey found that only 26% of Americans can name the three branches of the federal government. Yet every Tom, Dick and Harry thinks he knows all about how to amend a document he never bothered to read. Our lawyers were indoctrinated in law school with the Supreme Court’s perversions of our Constitution, and know nothing of our actual Constitution. We should read and learn the Constitution we have before we tinker with it or jump on the bandwagon of tinkerers.........

BREAKING News John McCain Did It AGAIN…He Needs To Go NOW!!
The biggest traitor in Washington D.C. might be none other than Senator John McCain. Disturbing information continues to emerge about his direct ties to Muslim terrorists and the London bomber, and how he’s owned and funded by Saudi terrorists and George Soros. Ever since Trump got into office, McCain has done everything in his power to subvert the President of the United States, which is a federal crime. As McCain continues to garner the sympathy of many Americans who still falsely believe he’s a Vietnam “war hero,” it’s time that we finally set the record straight about the unbelievable things McCain did during his time in the military, before McCain dies and nauseating tributes are made about his “service” in Vietnam. It’s important to note that due to McCain’s familial ties to high ranking Naval commanders during his time in service (his father and grandfather were both four-star admirals), the majority of McCain’s massive catastrophes and scandals in the Navy were completely buried, and his military records sealed.
We reported several weeks ago how John McCain was solely responsible for the horrifying atrocity aboard the USS Forrestal Aircraft Carrier on July 31 1967, where McCain’s cocky maneuver of doing a “wet start” of his plane would go on to kill 134 sailors, in the deadliest loss of life the Navy has ever seen. But because of McCain’s daddy being a 4-star admiral, the entire incident was buried, and the Navy never officially put blame on anyone for the tragedy. Astonishingly, McCain would not only be allowed to continue serving in the Navy, but would go on to be responsible for the deaths of numerous other men, in a scandal that has been successfully buried for decades.
Three months after the bloody tragedy on the USS Forrestal Aircraft Carrier, John McCain was sent on a bombing mission over Hanoi in October of 1967 when he was shot down and captured by the North Vietnamese, where he’s go on to be a prisoner of war until 1973. After being released from captivity, McCain would use his POW story and veteran status to rise to political prominence, where his image as a “Vietnam war hero” would go on to propel him to be elected as a United States Senator.
John “Songbird” McCain is welcomed back as a hero by President Nixon But a “hero” is the last thing that John McCain was or will ever be. What most people don’t know is the massive government scandal that McCain helped hide, as he’d go on for decades to tirelessly work to bury stunning information about American prisoners over in Vietnam who unlike him, didn’t return home. Using his position as a senator, McCain would be behind the scenes quietly pushing and sponsoring federal laws that would keep the most damning information about our POWs buried through classified documents. The secrets that John McCain has sought to hide about Vietnam POWs are massive. Despite sworn testimony by two Defense Secretaries of “the men left behind” in Vietnam, McCain continued to push the massive lie that there were no survivors, much to the horror of POW families who were frantic to know the truth about what happened to their loved ones. Enormous amounts of government documents indicate that hundreds of prisoners held in Vietnam were not returned when President Nixon signed the peace treaty in January of 1973. Only 591 in Hanoi were released, among them, Navy combat pilot John S. McCain. After the war, President Nixon promised the Vietnamese a $3.25 billion in “postwar reconstruction” aid “without any political conditions.” But there was a catch to this promise, where Nixon had included that Congress would have to approve these funds; approval that never happened. Furious that the American government had double-crossed them, Nanoi decided to keep the remaining hundreds of American prisoners, because their ransom money (post war provisions) never came. CIA whistleblowers said that the government wanted to keep these missing men a secret, because as more years passed, it became more and more difficult for the government to admit that it knew about the prisoners that were left behind. Years later, CIA officials admitted that their intel indicated that the remaining POWs were eventually executed by the Vietnamese, as they were no longer useful bargaining chips. After the Pentagon’s POW/MIA office was publicly shamed by internal whistleblowers that there were in fact still men in Vietnam being held as POWs, the pressure from the families and Vietnam veterans finally forced the government in 1991 to create the Senate Select Committee on POW/MIA Affairs, to investigate these allegations. John Kerry was made chairman of the board, and McCain became its most pivotal member. In the end, this committee became part of the debunking machine, and McCain would become paramount to sweeping the entire atrocity of these forgotten POWs under the rug. But what people don’t know is John McCain’s vital role in keeping this story about these abandoned POWs hidden from the American public, as a traitor who completely turned his back on his brothers-in-arms who had remained in captivity by the Vietnamese. In the 1990s, legislation was proposed to Congress called “the Truth Bill” that would’ve provided complete transparency about these prisoners and missing men. But the Pentagon and McCain bitterly opposed the bill, and it went nowhere. People were predictably outraged over the bill being shot down, so in an effort for McCain and crooked Pentagon officials to cover their asses, the McCain Bill,” suddenly appeared several months later. This bill eventually became law in 1991, but would only create a bureaucratic maze, making the truth for the families completely impossible to discover. The provisions of the law explicitly states why the Pentagon and other agencies are justified for not releasing information about prisoners held in captivity. Later that year, the Senate Select Committee was created, and McCain and Kerry would work together to bury the last renaming evidence on the missing men. The American Conservative reported on the other ways McCain screwed over the POWs, by authoring a crippling amendment to the Missing Service Personnel Act, that stripped away the obligations that commanders were previously held to of speedily searching for missing men and reporting these incidents to the Pentagon. The American Conservative reported:
“McCain was also instrumental in amending the Missing Service Personnel Act, which had been strengthened in 1995 by POW advocates to include criminal penalties, saying, ‘Any government official who knowingly and willfully withholds from the file of a missing person any information relating to the disappearance or whereabouts and status of a missing person shall be fined as provided in Title 18 or imprisoned not more than one year or both.’ A year later, in a closed House-Senate conference on an unrelated military bill, McCain, at the behest of the Pentagon, attached a crippling amendment to the act, stripping out its only enforcement teeth, the criminal penalties, and reducing the obligations of commanders in the field to speedily search for missing men and to report the incidents to the Pentagon.” “About the relaxation of POW/MIA obligations on commanders in the field, a public McCain memo said, ‘This transfers the bureaucracy involved out of the [battle] field to Washington.” He wrote that the original legislation, if left intact, “would accomplish nothing but create new jobs for lawyers and turn military commanders into clerks.'” “McCain argued that keeping the criminal penalties would have made it impossible for the Pentagon to find staffers willing to work on POW/MIA matters. That’s an odd argument to make. Were staffers only “willing to work” if they were allowed to conceal POW records? By eviscerating the law, McCain gave his stamp of approval to the government policy of debunking the existence of live POWs.” What’s even more sick is how McCain demonized the two Pentagon chiefs’ sworn testimonies who testified under oath about the men left behind, while insisting that all the evidence — to include documents, witnesses, satellite photos — be completely buried. He would go on to paint the entire story as an “unpatriotic myth” calling the testimony of anyone coming forward Vietnam’s POW’s the “bizarre rantings of the MIA hobbyists.” To this day, McCain regularly vilifies those who try to get their hands on these classified documents (that he’s worked for decades to conceal) as “hoaxers,” “charlatans,” “conspiracy theorists,” and “dime-store Rambos.” Ironically, the very same man who who for decades has been propped up and hailed a POW war hero and crusader for the interests of other POWs, is the very same man responsible for their deaths. It’s absolutely sick how this man, despite his murdering and treasonous and crooked antics for decades, is to this day regarded as a “hero” in the minds of millions of Americans. It’s finally time that we set the record straight on who John “Songbird” McCain truly is before he dies of brain cancer, and nauseating tributes are made about his “patriotic service” to our country.

More evidence that peace has been secured in the middle east. ~ Dinar Chronicles
Published on Dec 12, 2017
On December 6, the Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, General Gerasimov, at an annual briefing for foreign military attachés, made an official announcement: In Syria, all the ISIS formations are destroyed, the country's territory is completely freed from terrorists." A total of more than 1,000 settlements have been liberated.
On December 11, President Putin flew from Moscow to Syria and landed at the Russian air base in Khmeimim. Putin came specifically to inform Russian soldiers and officers that their honourable and difficult mission ended in complete victory and now they have a long-awaited journey home.
At the Russian airbase, the head of state communicated with the President of the Syrian Arab Republic Bashar Assad, Russian Defense Minister General Shoigu, as well as the commander of the Russian group in Syria, Sergei Surovikin.
"Syria is preserved as a sovereign and independent state, conditions have been created for a political settlement under the auspices of the United Nations, refugees are returning to their homes."
In an informal atmosphere, Putin talked with military personnel about their mission in Syria. At the meeting from the Syrian side, President Bashar Assad as well as the Syrian commander of the elite 5th assault corps "Tigers" Brigadier General Suhel was also present.
A smaller Russian military contingent remains to observe the situation from the airbase of Khmeimim and Navy base of Tartus. In addition, the Russian Center for Reconciliation will remain in Syria.
After visiting Khmeimim, Putin went on to a real political marathon. From Syria, the Presidential aircraft delivered Putin to Egypt, which can play an important role in the peace process in Syria. From Cairo, Putin went straight to Ankara for talks with Erdogan. Putin informed Erdogan about the withdrawal of the Russian military contingent from Syria, but there was no talk of problematic issues, such as the continued presence of Turkish troops entering the border regions of Syria.
In summary: 1) Leaving Syria now, Moscow demonstrated that it is not going to get involved in a long-term conflict like "the Afghan scenario", as professed by critics.
2) The Syrian government troops are trained and armed with Russian weapons. The negotiation process is developing successfully with the "moderate opposition" both in Syria itself, and in Geneva, where the next round of negotiations with all forces party to the conflict begins shortly.
3) Russia retained military bases in the Middle East - an important geopolitical factor. The army brilliantly demonstrated all of its tactical and technical capabilities, in a short time, destroying the infrastructure of the militants. Any further offensive of the Syrian army will now be supported by the Syrian Air Force with the available forces and means.
Look at this... Just got a new Canadian 10$ bill at the bank. The queen is gone and another woman is in the picture as well!

Increase Human Energy by Nikola Tesla
Information from: Nikola Tesla's book "The Problem of Increasing Human Energy" and Life craves energy and subconsciously you’ll always choose the path of least resistance because of that. That’s why high calorie food tastes better, that’s why whenever your beliefs are questioned you naturally refuse any arguments, that’s why people feel more depressed when there is no sunshine outside. All default responses are just energy saving reactions; ‘more calories’ means more energy, changing the structure of your beliefs requires energy, and it’s more efficient to do less when you are lacking the energy of the sun. However, a momentary ‘energy waste’ can result in a more sustainable energy consumption in the future. This requires higher levels of intelligence. For this to be achieved we must apply conscious effort in the right time and place. But what is the source of our energy? How can we gain more energy? How can we raise our consciousness and increase our intelligence?

SWAMP DRAIN: HOUSE SPEAKER PAUL RYAN TO EXIT CONGRESS
Paul Ryan has indicated this will be his final term as Speaker of the House, a report from Politico claims.
According to the liberal-leaning publication, “Ryan has made it known to some of his closest confidants that this will be his final term as speaker.”
“He consults a small crew of family, friends and staff for career advice, and is always cautious not to telegraph his political maneuvers. But the expectation of his impending departure has escaped the hushed confines of Ryan’s inner circle and permeated the upper-most echelons of the GOP,” write Tim Alberta and Rachael Bade.
Politico notes Ryan is exiting even as he has experienced a “better-than-expected relationship with President Donald Trump,” who frequently criticized the Wisconsin representative on Twitter. Paul Ryan, a man who doesn't know how to win (including failed run four years ago), must start focusing on the budget, military, vets etc. -- Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump 1:54 PM - Oct 16, 2016
Ryan was one of several Republican congressmen who refused to vocalize support for then-candidate Trump during the 2016 campaign.
House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) is resigning due to potential fallout over the debunked Russia dossier now threatening to take down high-level FBI officials as well as the brewing scandal involving former House IT staffer Imran Awan.
Ryan, who was never a fan of Donald Trump, isn’t far removed from the key players involved in the dossier, including GOP super donor Paul Singer, whose web site, the Washington Free Beacon, was reportedly the first to hire dossier maker Fusion GPS to probe Trump’s background.
The FBI may have used the dossier, which claimed Trump had “golden shower” parties with foreign hookers, as “justification” to spy on Trump’s presidential campaign.
The race between Roy Moore and Doug Jones was a close one, and Moore still has not conceded. The current law in Alabama requires a mandatory recount when there is a half of a percent margin, but Moore remains 1.5 percent behind his opponent, Doug Jones, who was declared the winner with 99 percent in. However, the military votes had yet to be counted. Moore is about 22,000 votes short, but it is uncertain whether the uncounted votes will tally up to that number...
Restoring The Beaten Down American Standard Of Living
In the battle to restore the American economy, traditionally the attention of most lawmakers and sovereign citizens is geared toward the lowering of taxes. In fact, lower taxes are one of the most important components of a thriving economy. Without tax breaks, the incentive to grow existing businesses is practically null and void. The eight years of the previous Obama regime was atrocious. In addition to the lowering of taxes in America one of the biggest necessities for the starting a small business is the availability of low interest loans.........
In this season of love and light, we know that there are many of you who also experience the holidays as a season of loss, loneliness, or lack. Anytime there are such massive expectations of how life “should” look, these will, by their very nature, highlight the contrasts.
If the holidays “should” be a time of family and friends, but they are not, you will have a tendency to feel as if something is wrong. If the holidays should be a time of giving but you can’t afford gifts, you might feel a sense of lack.
It is in releasing expectations, and facing the present moment with all the love and light in your heart, that you can find joy amidst loss, loneliness, or lack. If you feel a sense of loss, by facing the present bravely you will see all that you do have. If you feel a sense of loneliness, and face the present you will see all out there who are in need of love and in volunteering, or assisting others you will soothe your own loneliness. If you feel a sense of lack, it is in facing the present that you can look inside of yourself and find the gifts you do have to offer – the ones that don’t cost a dime.
The holidays, or any time of year, are enjoyed so much more easily when you face life as it is, when you look inside yourself, as you are, and when you accept those two things first, then asking yourself, “How can I bring more love into my life? How can I share love with life?”
Perhaps by offering to walk a friend’s dog a few times next year you will connect with other human beings whom you might not have met! Perhaps by making a jar filled with little pieces of paper containing wishes for a friend, you will feel the light of the season rushing through you and, in this positive vibration, enjoy your own miracles. Perhaps by sitting quietly and remembering all the good times with a loved one who has transitioned, you will be in a space to connect with them and feel their continuing presence around you.
Dear ones, release your expectations of yourself and life. Enjoy the holidays and every day as a simple, loving dance with life.
This is our holiday recipe for happiness:
Come as you are. Meet life as it is. Add love.
Very Interesting Article ~ Creative Solution to Feed the World
Source: Cure4Hunger ~ A Global Solution Note: This is the first I've read about Food Domes. I have not researched it further.
Once a Cure4Hunger Food and Water Dome is built, it produces 100% organic food for decades. No matter how dry, windy, wet, hot or cold outside, Cure4Hunger Food and Water Domes keep food safe and secure inside disaster proof domes.
Cure4Hunger is chartered to build 15,000 Food and Water Domes in 150 nations providing fruits, vegetables and fish in these domes. One hundred percent of all fresh water is provided by water atmospheric generators, which harvest 1,320 to 5,000 gallons of fresh drinking water 365 days a year.
Four compact Cure4Hunger Gravity Gardens Systems (10x10x15 feet) are equivalent to growing seven acres of outdoor farmland or 15 acres when poor harvest sections of flooded land or land near walk way or roads where crops receive high amounts of dust are added. Each robotic cylinder system produces more 100% organic crops per square foot in recorded history.
Construction of a Cure4Hunger Dome takes less than 30 days due to ease of design and is half the cost of a traditional building being 50-75% more energy efficient. The grow domes maintain the best environment (temperature and humidity) more effective and affordable than any other indoor farm. Within 15-20 years the energy savings pay for the entire cost of the grow dome.
Each disaster proof grow dome comes with a 100 year warranty and can withstand F5 hurricanes and tornados up to 400mph. Domes are also fire proof, bullet proof, termite proof, flood proof, reflect EMP’s and have an anti-liquefaction option for earthquake regions around the world. Cure4Hunger has a 10 year OEM license contract with SafestHouse to build the disaster proof domes at cost plus 3% royalty license fee.
C4H-30000-sf-Dome-side-view-667x1024Cure4Hunger’s innovative game changing invention grows unlimited crops safely and securely indoors regardless of the outside environment. More than 450 cities worldwide have populations of more than 1 million people. Building a 50-Story Cure4Hunger Tower will store the 200+Million pounds of fruits and vegetables produced annually from just 20,000 square feet of downtown land. Once a Cure4Hunger Dome is built, it produces money and food day after day, year after year, decade after decade maximizing harvests while using very little land and water to produce abundant food.
Cure4Hunger is the only company in the world that can guarantee delivery of any quantity of 3,000+ fruits, vegetables, plants, trees and flowers with a ten year price protect agreement. Cure4Hunger can build one of 3,000 type food domes for any food buyer providing 20% lower prices than their last three years average cost if Cure4Hunger builds the dome next to the distribution center. This eliminates transporting food hundreds or thousands of miles away as imported food costs consumers 20% higher prices. Cure4Hunger doesn’t import food, they import a hi-tech robotic farming technology equipped safely inside disaster proof domes to their customers eliminating issues food buyers face worldwide.
Cure4Hunger then takes 90% of all profits and builds twin Food and Water Domes in more than 150 nations poverty regions over the next decade and beyond to eradicate hunger by 2025. By using one million times less water than traditional outdoor farming with 100% of water collected from the atmosphere saves the world trillions of gallons of water each and every year. Each Gravity Garden has 420 “Crop slots”. A four system rack takes up only 10x10x15 space grows 1,680 crops.
This game changing technology integrates robotic Gravity Garden Systems with 100% of water used to grow the crops collected from the atmosphere allowing all farms worldwide to have the exact same PH levels best-suited for the types of crops grown.
In addition Cure4Hunger Domes do not require any water from the ground, which in many places is not suited for growing crops. This is why a Cure4Hunger crop grown in Gravity Gardens with Water Atmospheric Generators will taste the same on any continent.
C4H Water Atmospheric Generator and Dome
In addition to crop domes, there are state of the art fish breeding domes. Cure4Hunger is dedicated to the highest standards of responsible and humane fish breeding. All Cure4Hunger food domes have video surveillance for the public to monitor.

URGENT: The FCC just voted to destroy Net Neutrality and let companies violate our digital civil rights. We’re taking them to court. Chip in $10 (or whatever you can) to help fuel the fight.
We’re suing the FCC over its shameful decision to destroy the Net Neutrality rules.
Chairman Pai and the two other Republican commissioners voted to destroy the open internet, ignoring the voices of tens of millions of people and handing control of the internet to companies like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon.
These companies are now free to carve the internet into fast and slow lanes. They could block or slow down any content, services or apps they choose — and even silence political speech they disagree with. This is terrifying for anyone using the internet to organize for justice and challenge the powerful.
We won’t stand for it.
Chip in $10 (or whatever you can) to help us fight back and save the internet you love from the companies you hate.
Let us be clear: Ajit Pai will not have the last word on Net Neutrality. We intend to sue the FCC on the basis of its broken process, deeply flawed legal reasoning, willful rejection of evidence that contradicts its preordained conclusions, and absolute disregard for public input. We have a very strong case in court.
But we won’t stop there. We’re also urging lawmakers to overturn the agency’s decision1 and fighting back online and in the streets. And people are showing up — in red states and blue states, big cities and small towns. They’re discussing Net Neutrality in Teen Vogue, NASCAR fan forums, Black Lives Matter meetings and church on Sunday.
There’s no time to lose.
Chip in $10 (or whatever you can) to fuel the fight in the crucial months ahead.
A generous donor will match all donations up to $30K by Dec. 31, so please give right away. The future of the internet hangs in the balance.

Congress now considering an increase in H-2B visas for 2018, along with DACA amnesty -- Call your Members of Congress to oppose!
NumbersUSA has learned that Congressional Leaders may include an H-2B visa increase in the year-end spending bill. The H-2B visa is the low-skilled guest worker program used to fill seasonal or temporary jobs in landscaping, food service, hospitality, and more. This program adds extra job competition for low-skilled American workers and adversely affects the wages for these jobs. In past year's spending bills, Congress has exempted returning workers from the H-2B program, having the potential impact of quadrupling the number of these guest worker visas issued each year. For FY2017, Congress didn't exempt returning workers, but gave the Department of Homeland Security authority to issue visas beyond the annual cap. DHS ultimately increased the number of visas available by 15,000. This new threat adds to the continuing threat of a DACA amnesty being part of the spending bill. Despite rhetoric from leaders of both Parties, Congress could still include this amnesty in the must-pass bill.
We've posted a new phone note to your Action Board with the contact information for your three Members of Congress. Please call your U.S. Representative and two U.S. Senators and tell them to oppose a DACA amnesty and an H-2B visa increase in the must-pass, year-end spending bill.

This Issue: Use this ad/video to explain Chain Migration multiplication to friends & family
Fri, Dec 15th
News articles in hundreds of newspapers and websites today have announced NumbersUSA's advertising campaign to educate Americans on how quickly Chain Migration can spiral out of control. We started just yesterday running these ads on national cable news shows -- especially on CNN. Our aim is to create a visual image that can stick in Americans' minds. Every time they hear the term "Chain Migration," we want them to think of the expanding spiderweb of extended-family chains that we illustrate on the chalkboard of this ad.
2. Share the YouTube link with family and friends, preferably with a note on why you think it is important to reduce overall immigration by at least 250,000 a year (reduced stress on traffic and infrastructure, on farmland and natural habitat, on job competition and wage depression, etc.)
3. In things you write in the Comments section of other websites (especially news sites), put a link to the YouTube video and talk about what you feel the video reveals in terms of needed immigration changes. If the Comments section doesn't allow links, recommend that people "go to YouTube and search for 'Chain Migration NumbersUSA' "
4. Make sure the staff of every politician who represents your town, county, congressional district and state gets a link and a word from you about why now is the time to finally fulfill the bi-partisan Jordan Commission recommendation to end Chain Migration -- restricting family immigration only to spouse and minor children. We'll be sending you some alerts to help you do that. What anybody can say in a 30-second ad is quite limited. This is just the start of the campaign. We will be providing more and longer videos soon to further explain how Chain Migration works and why it is so important to stop it. The counter on YouTube that keeps track of views of our video shows 1.1 thousand at this moment, just below the number of views of Chain Migration videos from the White House and recent news programs. Let's quickly get that number well above all the other Chain Migration videos so it will show up high on any internet searches on "Chain Migration."
TIMING WHEN NATION PAYING ATTENTION
The timing of the start of our ad campaign couldn't have been better. The nation's attention has turned to Chain Migration this week because the New York City pipe bomber has been widely described as being in the U.S. because of Chain Migration and because the White House announced a major Chain Migration educational campaign of its own just as our TV ads started running yesterday. But I started working on OUR ad and campaign over the Thanksgiving weekend. Our plan had been to go public by late this week. My statement to the national media yesterday included: While Congress debates yet another amnesty, we want to help Americans visualize how the presence of chain migration categories means that amnesties are never limited to the people receiving them but instead open up lifetime work permits to millions more of their extended family and in-laws.
Using an animated chalk board, the 30-second ad shows how an amnesty for just one illegal border crosser or visa overstayer can lead to hundreds of distant relatives and in-laws lining up with the chance that they sooner or later can also get a lifetime U.S. work permit and path to U.S. citizenship. When you look at that giant spiderweb of potential Chain Migration in the ad, keep in mind that not one of those Chain Migration recipients is screened for skills, education or how they might affect local communities and American workers. The American people through their government are only involved in picking the first immigrant who may be chosen because Congress decides to give them an amnesty, or give them refuge or pick them for some exceptional skill. All the rest in that network are chosen by the first immigrant and by the chains of immigrants to follow. Our Chain Migration system operates basically as if you invite one person to be a guest in your house and then tell that guest that he/she is in charge of all future guests -- to YOUR house.
NEW THREAT ON SPENDING BILL
We posted a new phone note to yourAction Board today, urging your three Members of Congress to oppose adding a DACA amnesty and an H-2B visa increase to the year-end spending bill.
Our Capitol Hill Team has recently learned that Congressional Leaders are considering adding an H-2B provision to the bill similar to what's been added in previous years. In the past, Congress has exempted returning workers from the cap, potentially quadrupling the number of visas issued that could be issued in 2018. Earlier this year, lawmakers used the omnibus spending bill to authorize DHS to increase the total number of visas issued. Ultimately, DHS issued an additional 15,000 H-2B visas.

China preparing to trade oil in yuan, no more US dollar
Samson: China preparing to trade oil in yuan, no more US dollar
15th December, 2017
China earlier this year announced plans to start a crude oil futures contract priced in yuan and convertible into gold in a bid meant to challenge the dominance of the US dollar
China has reportedly completed its fifth dry run in yuan-backed oil futures contract trading thus moving closer to what could be a revolutionary move to challenge the dominance of the US dollar.
Bloomberg in a report said 149 members of Shanghai International Energy Exchange traded 647,930 lots in the rehearsal with a total value of 268.2 billion yuan. The system met the listing requirements of crude futures after the exercise, it added.
The report quoted economists as saying that the contract had the potential to greatly help China’s push for yuan internationalization.
The success of the contract, however, would depend on the degree of freedom allowed for the capital flows related to it, Bloomberg quoted Yao Wei, chief China economist at Societe Generale in Paris, as saying.
Since the 1970s, the global oil trade has almost entirely been conducted in US dollars.
The largest energy consumer, China, is interested in having oil contracts in yuan. Beijing plans to introduce its own oil benchmark which will rival Brent or West Texas Intermediate. Analysts say Chinese authorities will need to first convince large oil producers and consumers to use the yuan and invest in the Shanghai benchmark, Bloomberg added in a report that was also carried by the website of the Russian news television channel Russia Today.
The Chinese government announced plans to start a crude oil futures contract priced in yuan and convertible into gold earlier this year. The contract will enable the country's trading partners to pay with gold or to convert yuan into gold without the necessity to keep money in Chinese assets or turn it into US dollars
The new benchmark will reportedly allow exporters, such as Russia, Iran or Venezuela to avoid US sanctions by trading oil in yuan.
In September, Venezuela ditched the greenback for oil payments. Caracas has ordered oil traders to convert crude oil contracts into euro and not to pay or be paid in US dollars anymore. The measure followed the rolling out of sanctions by the United States against the country.
Samson: Silk Road ... An economic belt linking Iraq with China
- One Day Ago
The Silk Road is a 12,000 km long land and sea road linking Asia, the Middle East and Europe hundreds of years ago with commercial, cultural, religious and philosophical links. The exchange of goods and products such as silk, perfumes, incense, spices, and cultural and scientific exchanges.
The name Silk Road is relatively recent. In the mid-19th century, the German geologist, Ferdinand von Richthofen, named the name "de sidenstrasse" (the Silk Road in German) on the trade and transportation network.
China's surplus industrial production is one of the most important drivers behind the initiative. For example, China produces about 1.1 billion tons of steel a year (equivalent to that of all other countries), but it does not consume internally Only 800 million tons. The Federation of European Chambers of Commerce estimates that the initiative will absorb only 30 million tonnes of this surplus.
China enjoys friendly, good and influential relations with most countries in the region as it is expected to have a more effective security and political role in the Middle East.
In June 2007, Iraq's President Jalal Talabani visited China, the first visit by an Iraqi president, during which four agreements were signed by the two countries. Including an agreement on the cancellation of 80% of Iraq's debt owed to China, amounting to eight and a half billion dollars, including The other three agreements of cooperation between the two countries' foreign economic and technical cooperation ministries and a program for the training of human resources and signed a memorandum of understanding between the ministries of science and technology in both countries to train dozens of Iraqis in the field of energy and how to make use of solar energy to produce electricity.
Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi seeks to find an outlet for the suffocating crises in Iraq, security, political and economic through the signing of quick and far-reaching agreements to avoid the fall in oil prices, which is the main source of Iraqi income, calling for the recruitment of Iraq's joining the Silk Road in developing areas of cooperation in many sectors , Especially coordination and cooperation on energy with China.
Abadi called for "activating the Iraqi-Chinese relations committee, resuming its meetings and increasing trade exchange with China." He welcomed the expansion of Chinese enterprises in the country, where Chinese President Xi Jinping supported the invitation.
A statement by Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi's office said that the Iraqi government signed with its Chinese counterpart at the end of 2015 five agreements and memoranda of economic, technological, military, diplomatic, oil and energy cooperation.
The notes are:
The first "understanding on participation in building the economic belt of the Silk Road and the Silk Road of the 21st century".
And the second "economic and technological cooperation between the two countries".
The third included the signing of a framework agreement on energy cooperation.
The fourth note focused on "military cooperation between the two countries", while the fifth memorandum signed an agreement on the mutual exemption of visa for the entry of diplomatic passports.
The importance of the new Silk Road comes from the Chinese initiative and the areas it is linking to form an economic belt that will expand economic and cultural exchanges and connect groups of small emerging nations, as well as the traditional G20 emerging nations.
The economic belt of the Silk Road is centered on three main lines of the so-called "aspirations and actions on pushing forward the joint construction of the Silk Belt and Road",
"connecting China-Europe line through Central Asia and Russia," and a line extending from China to the Gulf and Mediterranean region Central Asia and Western Asia "," a third line from China to South-East Asia, South Asia and the Indian Ocean ".
The maritime silk route of the 21st century focuses on two main lines: "A line that starts from China's coastal ports and reaches the Indian Ocean through the South China Sea and the coasts of Europe"; and "a line linking China's coastal ports to the South Pacific."
China attaches great importance to Iraq for several reasons:
First, Iraq is a rich country with large oil resources, water, minerals, agriculture and various resources.
This has led the Chinese to think about working and investing in Iraq and have a foothold because China needs great energy. They expect to face problems in this regard. In 2020. By 2025, they expect their oil consumption to be around 15 million barrels a day, while today they consume 6.5 million barrels a day, of which 4 million barrels of extraction, so that the amount they import from the oil abroad 2.5 million barrels per day, then Go ahead China's development of the past 20 years will require large amounts of energy consumption, although 65 percent of the energy is coal, 30 percent is oil and gas, and 5 percent is nuclear power.
There is an old agreement between China and Iraq to extract oil in the field of "Ahdab" in the province of Wasit at a time when Iraq is suffering the blockade and now the Chinese demand the renewal of the contract and work, as well as geographically and civilizational and cultural heritage and they are one of Iraq's four civilized countries in the world: Egypt, India, and Iraq, and therefore they want to participate actively in rebuilding Iraq and the use of capital in it, they have a lot of money and China is the first country in terms of financial reserves.
Iraqi Ambassador to China Ahmed Berwari said Sino-Iraqi relations enjoyed an important economic strategy against the backdrop of the belt and road initiative.
He stressed that the "Belt and Road" initiative is important for Iraq because it is historically located on the Silk Road. Therefore, we have prepared ourselves as part of the initiative since it was put forward by Chinese President Xi Jinping.
The importance of this initiative is to support Iraq so that it can rebuild the infrastructure and help it economically and developmentally to be active in the region. The initiative is important for Iraq and the Middle East because it provides them with significant economic and developmental support.
Berwari said that China enjoys superiority in many fields, and since Iraq, an oil-exporting country, is mutually beneficial between the two countries, which enjoy strategic relations.
Chinese state-owned enterprises are the biggest oil investors in Iraq, especially the modernization and development of Iraq's oil infrastructure.
Berwari said that 90% of Iraq's imports came from the sale of oil. Therefore, investment is important in development, which is a great support for Iraq.
Berwari said that the volume of trade exchange between the two countries in 2016 amounted to 18 billion US dollars, but this year, according to statistics of the Chinese official body, in the first half of 2017, reached 11 billion US dollars.
Despite the decline in the price of oil, the amount of Iraqi oil exported to China has not decreased, but increased. But because of the low price, we notice that the amount compared to 2013 and 2014 decreased slightly, but the price is down and not the amount of export.
The relative importance of trade relations between the two countries relative to the volume of exports and imports is relatively balanced, a sign of healthy economic and trade relations between the two countries.
And Berwari to the decline in trade in Iraq; because of wars and siege and problems in Iraq, did not have the opportunity to develop and modernize the infrastructure in various areas, after being destroyed in those wars, and the occupation of a terrorist organization calling for cities in Iraq, And reconstruction in full.
"Chinese companies are very effective in Iraq, in fields such as oil, energy, energy, energy, and energy. We have a huge shortage in this field, and Chinese companies are very active and effective in this field.
Berwari said that about 60% of the electricity of the city of Baghdad is produced by Chinese companies in Iraq, and that China is a pioneer in the field of transportation, communication and communication.
Berwari describes Iraqi-Chinese relations as historic and strategic, meaning they have reached a very advanced stage.
This type of relationship between the two countries includes areas of development, economy, oil, electric power, transportation, infrastructure, residential construction, and others.
We look forward to entering into new areas, including agriculture, security and defense, and to develop our relations more, because we want China to have a more active role in our region.
Motives and fears
Despite the development of cooperation between Iraq and China, there are fears that the surplus of Chinese industrial production is one of the most important motives behind the initiative of the belt and road; China produces about 1.1 billion tons of steel annually, a quantity equivalent to that produced by all other countries of the world, but it does not Internally consume only 800 million tons. The Federation of European Chambers of Commerce estimates that the initiative will absorb only 30 million tonnes of this surplus.
China's Development Bank said it was already tracking more than 900 projects in 60 countries at a cost of about $ 850 billion and by late 2014 it had allocated $ 40 billion to the Silk Road Fund to start funding the $ 1 trillion initiative.
China's investment in the Silk Road initiative has reached 60 billion US dollars since 2013, and China's overseas investments will total US $ 120 billion to US $ 130 billion annually over the coming years, mainly to the countries involved in the Silk Road project, Chinese officials said. Will be a major engine for a steady recovery in the global economy, free trade and investment, according to the Chinese view.
Economic advantages for the countries of the region of the Silk Road:
The Arab Republic of Egypt believes that "the belt and the international road" and joining the Chinese initiative 2014, to revive the road will achieve cooperation and the interests of the people.
And a good opportunity for Egypt to present its investment incentives and the application of the new investment law, and in light of the great interest of Chinese companies to invest in the area of the axis of development of the Suez Canal, which Egypt aspires to turn into a global industrial and logistics area that is attractive and not just a navigational corridor.
Turkey has received the project of the belt and the road with great pleasure, said Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan: The project «belt and road» known as the «new Silk Road» initiative «will eliminate the escalating terrorism in the world," stressing that the project has an influential role in the future, Linking Asia, Europe, Africa and even South America to each other. "
The project covers more than 60 countries on an area of 40 million km, and 4.5 billion people live in the world, Erdogan said.
"Turkey is one of the most important countries in the Silk Road, and it wishes to cooperate with all countries in this regard," Erdogan said.
"China is a global power in the fields of trade, economy and defense industries that can fill the vacuum of the West and Turkey's survival away from this power is a loss," said Turkish economists.

In previous messages we have said that your year 2017 ends the decade of delay in Earth’s peoples advancing spiritually and consciously because some souls reneged on their agreement to join the light forces after creating the circumstances that let masses of souls experience chosen karma. Now we shall put that into the context of what has happened to date and what is forthcoming.
Very few individuals were enlightened when Earth still was mired in deep third density only 80-some years ago. The profusion of light from other civilizations that enabled the planet to begin ascending was available to all of her residents, and volunteers came from their homelands to generate light as members of the society.
Persons who responded by awakening started radiating their own light, and the increasing amount on the planet kept stirring others to open their hearts and minds. And so it was that throughout the decades the numbers of enlightened souls slowly, steadily grew. Henceforth, the numbers will swiftly increase until the light swells into a “love revolution” that encircles the globe and Earth’s Golden Age can begin to bloom in glorious fullness.
A recent email evoked the thought that other lightworkers also may be pondering this: “I truly want to be a good lightworker, but I can’t send love or light to people who brutally treat other people and animals. Please don’t tell me, ‘They’re the ones in our universal family who need it most.’ I know that. I don’t know how to separate who they ARE from what they DO. Is love in a metaphysical or spiritual sense different from the love that is natural to feel for family and friends?” In a sense it can be, but love, which is attributed to spirit, and light, which is attributed to science, are one and the same energy so there is no actual difference.
However, while energy cannot be divided into “light” and “love” compartments, it can be expressed both ways and experiencedboth ways. Most simply stated, light is experienced as visual illumination and love is experienced as the feelings of persons who are dear to each other, but other facets enter into this. Energy is cosmic consciousness that continuously is drawing in what every soul in existence does.
Energy is neutral; each streamer is given direction by the intention attached in thoughts and feelings—when the intention is visual illumination, your sense of vision perceives light provided by Sol or electrical lighting fixtures; when the intention is love, that sensation is provided and actions based in love follow naturally.
The universal law of attraction brings back more of whatever intention is sent forth in energy streamers. And, love is light within radiating its god-self, the pure love-light essence of Creator, and the amount radiated is in accordance with the amount of light within the soul.
The dark ones became lost in internal darkness, they are devoid of light within except the spark that is their life force. The intentions attached to their thoughts and feelings come from that deep void, and the darkness they send forth keeps coming back to them. Only light can fill the void and engender actions created in love. It is on behalf of all life on Earth that we have urged you to send love-light to those individuals—by transmuting the low vibrations of darkness into love’s high vibrations, darkness is done away.
Shortly after my mother and I started conversing, she told me she couldn’t separate her thoughts about people who caused terrible suffering from her feelings about them. We hope that what I told her will be helpful to the reader and others who may feel the same.
Mother, you would turn on a flashlight to guide someone out of the darkness of uncertainty and anxiety onto a path where they are confident and secure, wouldn’t you? Those souls have lost their way and are fearful and foundering. Do not think of them as their deeds, but rather what you want for the world! Think of kindness, helpfulness and justness and sharing, think about the world’s people living in harmony, peacefulness and love and send those thoughts to those souls in darkness.
Dear family, never underestimate your power to “light up the world”!
“I heard that beneath his kindly demeanor, Pope Francis is an evil man who works for the Illuminati and sides with neo-Nazis. I’m not a Catholic, but it’s hard for me to believe that could be true.” It is not true. This is what is true: Pope Francis has encountered relentless opposition from the Illuminati because he is doing his best to oust or demote cardinals who are high in their ranks; end sacrificial rituals—the Vatican is the international headquarters of Satanism; make the Vatican’s immorally amassed monetary fortunes available to uplift the lives of the impoverished; end centuries-old dogma devised to control the masses; and he exemplifies the spiritual aspects of the religion—love, compassion, empathy, humility and forgiveness.
All of that is completely contrary to Illuminati interests and intentions. Pope Francis’ only connection with anything Nazi is his desire to return to the rightful owners the art treasures stolen by WWII Nazis and hidden in the Vatican.
“I never heard of parallel and possible worlds before Matthew mentioned them in a message. What are they and do they have any importance?” Although we were speaking about those worlds with reference to Earth, how you create your personal worlds is the same principle and very likely of greater interest because they do have importance. You initiate a parallel world each time you reach a significant fork in the road, so to say—perhaps what vocation to pursue, whether to attend college or apply your aptitude for a specific endeavor, what kind of company to work for, whom to marry, how much of earnings to save, where to relocate.
Let us say that you have received two good job offers. As you think about what each job entails and contemplate which is more likely to lead to the future you want, you put forth considerable energy into both. Energy cannot be destroyed, and that which you put into the “fork not taken” continues a course that is logical for what had transpired prior to your decision.
The course is given further direction and momentum by the energy of your subsequent thoughts and feelings such as I’m sure I made the right choice by not taking that other job. Or, If I had accepted that other job, I’d be working overseas and could travel and learn more about the world. Or, I wonder if that other job would have been as stressful as this one. All of the energy you put into “that other job” before and after your decision creates a parallel world in keeping with the energy you generate, and it is the same with all other “forks” you encounter.
None of your parallel worlds becomes part of your lifeprint in the Akashic records, but none of the energy in those numerous worlds that are unknown to you consciously is wasted. It is recorded in a separate system where it can be used beneficially in this lifetime as subconscious helpers with your chosen karmic lessons. Applicable aspects of your parallel worlds can serve equally as well as could a “future” physical lifetime wherein you choose to work on mastering those lessons.
And there can be no confusion as to where the assistance goes. Each soul’s unique registration in the frequency airwaves of the universal mass consciousness is permanently attached to the soul’s Askashic records and to its parallel worlds’ recording system, and from the latter, energy streamers flow flawlessly to the soul wherever it is experiencing a physical lifetime.
There are two major differences in parallel and possible worlds. First, possible worlds are completely within your conscious awareness and can lead to probable worlds and on to a certainty. Let us use as an example that you think about going on a trip. As you give this more attention—where to go, when, and how to budget the expense—the world of possibility becomes probability and so it remains unless it reaches certainty, your departure.
Second, energy streamers in parallel worlds are much stronger than those in possible worlds. When an idea about a trip goes no further than a few passing thoughts, those form a weak streamer that wafts around until it meshes with a pool of energy awaiting attachments to give it direction.
“Will the human-looking ETs you said are ‘special forces’ keep that appearance after they identify themselves or will they shift into their ‘real’ bodies?” It would be difficult for most people to believe individuals are from other civilizations just because they say they are, so it is likely that they would introduce themselves in their recognizable form, then shift into their native homeland bodies so the change could be witnessed. Afterwards, we think they would do whatever is most comfortable for everyone working with them. We add that part of evolving consciously and spiritually is accepting differences in peoples’ physical appearances as naturally as those differences in flowers and animals.
You may discover that you and some of the visiting extraterrestrials have the same ancestry. A member of one of the many civilizations that are helping Earth spoke about familial relationships in her presentation. Mother, please copy that part of what Agnes said.
“My civilization was partly responsible for the populating of Earth in its earliest seedings. We always have held most dear not only the humans living within this atmosphere, but that paradise of a homeland selected for your breeding and experiencing. It was intended that someday we would reunite with you in all glory and recognition, but there has been no attempt on your part to encourage such a reunion. This is from fear and loss of memory, and it does not change our relationship, it does not lessen our love and brotherhood. So that tells you most clearly why we are here at this time of severe changes. ….
“Our purpose is to reunite with those souls who came from our own beginnings. All souls here are precious in God’s regard, so we do not denigrate one soul and uplift another arbitrarily. It is as if a family on Earth called in the cousins and aunts and uncles so all are under the grandparents’ roof for reunion. It is a natural selection, is it not, and you do not feel it is necessary to invite all who may pass by the roadway beyond? So it is with our mission and purpose. Yes, of God, in all ways and always.” [Those excerpts from the chapter “Agnes,” which I received in 1994, are in Revelations for a New Era.]
Thank you, Mother. Beloved sisters and brothers, we are with you in unconditional love and joyous spirit during your celebratory season of religious services, uplifting music and festivities with family and friends. Greet your new year with gratitude for blessings in your life, excitement about benevolent happenings on the near horizon, and peaceful feelings—peace in the world starts with peace within.
Some say that Christmas began with the sun worshipers in the time of Nimrod at the Towel of Babel. Later, it coincided with the Roman Feast of the Birth of Sol, the sun god. Those who stand against Christmas will tell you the early church never celebrated the birth of the Savior, but that in the fifth century, it was made a "Christian" holiday by the apostate Church, as a way to make the church more appealing to the worldly.........

If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah. If Mike, Dave and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Bubba and Wildman.
When the bill arrives, Mike, Dave and John will each throw in $20, even though it's only for $32.50. None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want change back. When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators. (this one is so-o-o-o true)!!
A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs. A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need but it's on sale.
A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel. The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337.. A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items.
A woman has the last word in any argument.. Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.
A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband. A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.
A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't. A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, but she does.
A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the trash, answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail. A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.
Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed. Women somehow deteriorate during the night.
Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams. A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
A married man should forget his mistakes. There's no use in two people remembering the same thing!
So, send this to the women who have a sense of humor .... and to the men who will enjoy reading it.
Good friend are like quilts, they age with you and yet, they never lose their warmth. Take good care of them.
Justice prevails today in our court system like sunlight in a sewer. Today's system is a travesty of judicial arrogance, prosecutorial suppression of evidence, attorney greed, and special interest cupidity. More and more the goal of justice is being replaced by simply "volume of convictions" achieved by any means in order to convey the appearance of effectiveness..........
