A Story of the First Apocalypse of James Discovered

A rare original Greek copy of ‘Jesus’ secret teachings to his brother James’ has been discovered by biblical scholars.

Fragments of a 1,600-year-old heretical document describe how Jesus passes on knowledge of heaven and future events, including James’ inevitable death.

The text, from the story the ‘First Apocalypse of James’, refers to James as Jesus’ brother, though ‘not materially’.

The story was deemed ‘forbidden’ because writings that added to or changed the existing New Testament in any way were not permitted.

It forms part of the Nag Hammadi library, a series of 52 religious manuscripts written sometime between the 2nd and 6th Century AD.

Spread across 13 leather-bound vellum codices found buried in Egypt, they are of a heretical tradition known as Gnosticism – an early, mysterious form of Christianity. read more

Israel Capital Finally Recognized

President Donald Trump announced Wednesday in a televised address from the White House that the United States officially recognizes the city of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and will begin moving its embassy there.

“I have determined that it is time to official recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,” President Trump said. “While previous presidents have made this a major campaign promise, they failed to deliver. Today, I am delivering.”

He later added: “Today, we finally acknowledge the obvious: that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital. This is nothing more or less than a recognition of reality. It is also the right thing to do. It’s something that has to be done.” read more

Pearl Harbor – A Day of Remembrance

By the President of the United States of America
A Proclamation
National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day
December, 1986 – Ronald Reagan
Captain – U.S. Army Air Forces (AAF)

In the annals of American history, only a few events are so well-known and so deeply rooted in national remembrance that the mere mention of their date suffices to describe them. Of these occurrences, none could have had more significance for

our Nation than December 7, 1941.

On that Sunday morning, 45 years ago, the Imperial Japanese Navy launched an unprovoked, surprise attack upon units of the Armed Forces of the United States stationed at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. This attack claimed the lives of 2,403 Americans, wounded 1,178 more, and damaged our naval capabilities in the Pacific. Such destruction seared the memory of a generation and galvanized the will of the American people in a fight to maintain our right to freedom without fear.

Weapon Wednesday – Warthog Gets a Propellar

 

My Favorite Attack Aircraft Ever! A-10 Warthog

A partial replacement for the A-10 Warthog has reached a key milestone, with lawmakers backing a $400 million investment in the program. The OA-X program, designed to procure a light attack/observation aircraft, could see up to 300 aircraft purchased by the U.S. Air Force to take over aerial warfare in low-intensity conflicts.

The Air Force took one step closer to fielding a fleet of up to 300 light attack aircraft. Funding for the OA-X, or Observation, Attack, Experimental aircraft was included by Congress in the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act, other

wise known as the 2018 Defense Budget.

OA-X is an attempt to develop a low cost weapon and sensor platform for close air support duties. The Air Force expects to use the aircraft over conflicts that don’t involved high tech adversaries like Russia or China, where the biggest threat is a light anti-aircraft cannon or a shoulder-fired surface to air missile. OA-X could have supported U.S. forces against the insurgency in Iraq, or today’s conflicts in Afghanistan, Syria, Somalia, and the Philippines.

This summer, four candidates for the program, the Textron ScorpionHawker Beechcraft AT-6 WolverineEmbraer/Sierra Nevada Super Tucano A-29, and Air Tractor AT-802U were all tested at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico in a variety of simulated missions from convoy escort to supporting friendly ground troops in contact. Earlier this fall the Air Force proposed sending two of the aircraft, the Wolverine and Super Tucano to fly real missions in a conflict zone.

Trump May be Becoming the President We Conservatives Wanted

Not Yet – But Maybe Soon!

Despite his constant tweeting, his loud and brash exterior, is President Trump slowly becoming the President we wanted all along? He just may be.

Sure, he may never be the strict Constitutionalist that I have been pining for oh these many years. I don’t reckon another Calvin Coolidge will be rising to prominence any time soon, if ever again.

But the decisions Trump makes without having to include Congress have been impressive. His campaign platform was replete with conservative ideas. Tax cuts were his idea. He chose supreme Court justice Neil Gorsuch. Deportation of illegals was his idea, as was the construction of an actual border wall – not just lame picket fence, or a hollow promise. Unlike Congress, he actual does want to repeal ObamaCare.

Renegotiation of trade deals to be more beneficial to America is his idea. Backing out of the Paris Climate hoax was all him. Dealing more harshly with Iran and North Korea – him. Vetting of refugees, etc. The list grows larger seemingly every day. And they are all good ideas that get lost in the tone and tenor of his presentation. That, and the constant yapping of the “purse dogs” in the press.

And now he has just done something that should impress even the hardest-core federalist. read more

WND Exclusive -Accountability for Sexcapades: Only in Private Sector

Scandals involving every sort of impropriety have been blowing up over the last year. Virtually all of them involve Hollywood and Washington, D.C.

This year has shaped up, like no other, to be the year of the scandal. I wonder if the Chinese could, at this late date, retroactively change 2017 from the Year of the Rooster, to the Year of the Scandal? It’s probably too late. However, the way things are shaping up, 2018 will likely bring more of the same.

A woman called into Rush Limbaugh’s national radio program Thursday to discuss the topic of scandals. But it wasn’t just regarding the scandals themselves, but the response to them. read more

British Elite Special Forces to Allow Women

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The British Special Air Service, or SAS, is the effective forerunner for American Special Forces. They rival American operators in skill and toughness.

The elite SAS was founded in 1941, for the North Africa campaign against the Nazis. This was six months prior to the Americans entering the war. Two years later, in 1943, began what we know today as the Navy SEALs. When they began, the SEALs were known as the Naval Combat Demolition Unit, or NCDU, and worked exclusive in the water.

For almost three quarters of a century, the British SAS, SEALs, SWCC, Army Rangers, Delta, Green Berets, Marine Corps Special Operations Command, or MARSOC, and Air Force Special Operations Squadrons, or AFSOC, have been male only.

Then President “Feminizer” Obama was elected and things began to change – for the worse. The era of politically correct military social experimentation was on. And what a perfect group of test subjects – ones who can’t quit or merely walk out. Soldiers, sailors, airman and Marines were trapped and forced to put up with new military P.C. directives. read more
