 Andrey Afanasyev joins Alex Jones live via Skype to lay out the battleground of the war waged against nationalists and their interests by the global elites trying to forge one world government.


"Two years ago, when Metro Councilman Loinel Greene was implicated in potentially illegal activity and resigned, Mayor Barry had a somewhat different attitude about the standards of conduct that apply to elected officials in Metro Nashville Government." 
“Nashville deserves to have elected leaders they can trust to uphold the laws and serve as role models. I hope whoever is elected to replace Mr. Greene to serve Council District 1 will do just that,” Barry added.
As a councilor, she performed the first same-sex wedding in Nashville in 2015.  
Graduated from the private (CATHOLIC) all-girls Notre Dame de Sion School in nearby Kansas City, Missouri.
Barry worked in business ethics and corporate responsibility for the multinational telecommunications firm Nortel Networks. From 2003 to 2012, Barry was vice president of ethics and compliance at Premier, Inc., a health-care group purchasing organization. She also worked as Principal of Barry & Associates, an independent consulting organization to multinational corporations on issues dealing with business ethics and corporate social responsibility.
 She appointed Nashville's first Chief Diversity Officer to review and oversee policies as it relates to diversity in hiring and promotions within Metro Government.
 On August 29, 2017, Barry dismissed the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood's anti-LGBT Nashville Statement as "poorly named" and unrepresentative of the inclusivity of Nashville and its citizens.
 On December 10, 2017, Barry dedicated the first historical marker in Tennessee to honor an LGBT activist, Penny Campbell, in East Nashville.

Nashville Mayor Megan Barry dodged repeated questions at a televised press conference Wednesday night on whether her extra-marital affair with her chief bodyguard, a city employee, was hypocritical as a champion of women’s rights. She also seemed to acknowledge she only came out because the news was breaking.
“I am embarrassed and I am sad and I am sorry for all the pain I caused my family and his family, and I know that God will forgive me, but I know Nashville doesn’t have to,” Barry said. She added she hopes she can earn back people’s trust.
Earlier in the day, in an exclusive interview with NewsChannel 5 Investigates, Barry insisted that she has not misused taxpayer funds as part of the relationship with Metro Police Sergeant Rob Forrest, NewsChannel 5’s Phill Williams reported on Wednesday.
Forrest resigned — the term being used is retirement after 31 years with the police department. Barry said he gave notice on Jan. 17.
During the press conference, Barry was asked more than once about the professional aspect of having an affair with a subordinate, especially in terms of women’s rights. The point was raised that if a man were in her position, he would be expected to resign. Instead, she as boss kept her job and her employee resigned. One reporter said she was “giving women’s rights a bad smell.”
Barry deflected the questions and said the Me Too Movement is about women who have been sexually harassed and discriminated against economically. Her affair is different because it involved two consenting adults, she said repeatedly.
“I didn’t stop being human when I became mayor,” she said more than once.
Barry was asked why she is talking now about the affair, which dates back to several months after the start of her term. She said rumors were swirling and would become public. “I needed to own it,” she said.
The mayor was asked if she could have asked Forrest to resign once the affair started.
“It was wrong, and I should have gone to the chief and I should have said what was happening,” she said.
Barry has racked up nearly double the out-of-town trips of her predecessor, Mayor Karl Dean, it was mentioned during the press conference. She has journeyed to both coasts of the U.S. and places in between. She also traveled to Athens, Greece — and Paris, the City of Lights, widely acknowledged as a romantic destination.
The mayor denies she and Forrest had the affair while he was on duty, being paid by taxpayers.
He averaged $34,000 a year in overtime for the last three years of former Mayor Karl Dean’s term, NewsChannel 5 reported.
But after Barry took office, Forrest’s overtime pay increased to just below $60,000 in fiscal year 2015-2016.
The next year, that increased to more than $75,000, bringing his total pay to $157,187 in fiscal year 2016-2017.
Barry justified having a police guard as a result of the department’s policy for protecting a mayor. She said her police detail only traveled on official trips, not family trips. Her globe-trotting business trips were made for conferences, transit planning and for the soccer stadium issue.
The mayor justified her extensive traveling as a result of her “aggressive schedule.” The schedule lines up with Forrest’s overtime, she said, and she promised she would turn over any records that were requested. She said she did nothing illegal.
Another question dealt with the expense of her trips versus the $2.4 million she wants to cut from Metro departments for a $13.2 million Nashville General Hospital bailout as well as plans to spend $9 billion on a transit plan. The word “hypocritical” was used in connection to Barry asking taxpayers and Metro government to give up billions while she spends time with a lover on the city payroll.
“What I did was wrong,” Barry responded. “I should not have had that affair.” She added that she would have traveled with someone on her security detail if not Forrest.
Barry would not say when or how the affair ended.
The mayor was asked about speculation she had planned to resign during the press conference. She said she will not resign. She said she plans to keep working on transit and her other agendas.
“This is not a tragedy, this is a mistake,” she said.
When asked how difficult pushing her agendas would be now, Barry said, “I have personal failings. I am only human.”
 Nashville Mayor Megan Barry Releases Statement on Extramarital Affair: ‘Firmly Committed to Working Hard to Serve the People of Nashville Now and into the Future’
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
Late Wednesday, the office of Nashville Mayor Megan Barry released a statement in which she admitted she has “engaged in an extramarital affair with the former head of my security detail.”
Though she apologized to the people of Nashville and her husband, Barry gave no indication she was even considering resigning, saying “I remain firmly committed to working hard to serve the people of Nashville now and into the future.”
A press conference is now scheduled for 7 p.m.
You can read the full statement here:

“Today, I have acknowledged publicly that I have engaged in an extramarital affair with the former head of my security detail.
“I accept full responsibility for the pain I have caused my family and his. I am so sorry to my husband Bruce, who has stood by me in my darkest moments and remains committed to our marriage, just as I am committed to repairing the damage I have done.
“I also must apologize to the people of Nashville who elected me to serve as your mayor. I knew my actions could cause damage to my office and the ones I loved, but I did it anyway. I must hold myself to the highest standard of which the voters deserve to expect. Please know that I’m disappointed in myself but also understand that I’m a human and that I made a mistake.
“In 2015, I was elected to serve as Mayor of Nashville on a platform that included building more affordable housing, improving public education, and promoting better transportation options. We have made progress on these fronts – but there is more to be done. While I regret any distractions that will be caused by my actions, I remain firmly committed to working hard to serve the people of Nashville now and into the future.
“God will forgive me, but the people of Nashville don’t have to. In the weeks and months to come, I will work hard to earn your forgiveness and earn back your trust.”
Two years ago, when Metro Councilman Loinel Greene was implicated in potentially illegal activity and resigned, Mayor Barry had a somewhat different attitude about the standards of conduct that apply to elected officials in Metro Nashville Government.
“Mr. Greene did the right thing by resigning from his position on the Metro Council. Nashville deserves to have elected leaders they can trust to uphold the law and serve as role models. I hope whoever is elected to replace Mr. Greene to serve Council District 1 will do just that,” Mayor Barry said. (emphasis added)
Greene was later disbarred.
Sources tell The Tennessee Star that if Mayor Barry, who has given no indication at all that she intends to resign, were, in fact, to resign, Vice Mayor David Briley would become acting mayor, and a special election for a new mayor would be held within six months.
District Attorney Glenn Funk Requests TBI Investigate Nashville Mayor Megan Barry Affair

Fallout from Wednesday’s bombshell admission by Nashville Mayor Megan Barry that she carried on a years-long affair with the head of her security detail, Rob Forrest, continues.
Serious questions as to the taxpayer funds that Barry may have funneled to Forrest in the form of overseas trips and overtime payments has triggered District Attorney Glenn Funk to ask the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation to look into the matter to determine if there was–and the extent to which there may have been– any criminal wrongdoing by Metro Nashville’s chief executive.
“District Attorney Glenn Funk has asked TBI Director Mark Gwyn to investigate whether Mayor Megan Barry and/or others, including Sgt. Rob Forrest, violated any criminal law including misappropriation of public funds and official misconduct,” Funk spokesman Steve Hayslip told The Tennessean Thursday morning.
“As with any TBI investigation, agents will collect any and all relevant evidence and interviews and, in turn, submit investigative findings to the district attorney general for his further review and consideration,” TBI spokesman Josh DeVine confirmed to The Tennessean.
Meanwhile, Rob Forrest’s wife, through her attorney, requested the former security chief’s cell phone and its contents be held and preserved by the Metro Nashville Police Department. MNPD spokesperson Kris Mumford told The Tennessean that, “The phone device was collected and has been preserved.”
Fox News 17 reports Sheri Weiner, who chairs of the Metro Council Ethics Committee, is preparing to release a statement soon:
The head of Metro Council’s Ethics Committee says they are aware of what’s going on but are not not actively doing an investigation. They are, however, prepared to investigate should a formal complaint be filed. In order for the committee to do an investigation, someone must file a formal complaint of which the Metro legal department deems necessary to look in to.
Mayoral Office Statement on 
Mayor Megan Barry's Travel Denies 
Impropriety, Malfeasance
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
"February 5, 2018
Multiple media outlets have requested documents and asked questions related to the travel schedule of Mayor Megan Barry and Sgt. Rob Forrest. Below is a statement from Mayor Barry’s Communications Director, Sean Braisted, outlining the facts and information as best we know them at this time. We will continue compiling information and documents as requested and release them to media in a timely fashion:

“We appreciate the patience of the media and public as we have been working to compile information and records that have been requested by the media. We wanted to get the information out as quickly as possible but also as accurately as possible, and that has taken some time.

“We have been compiling expense reports, receipts, schedules, and other documents that will provide more information to those who want to know whether any taxpayer funds were used in relation to this affair.

“What the records show is this:

“Mayor Barry has never sought reimbursement for meals or other expenses related to travel. She has never sought to financially benefit from any of the travel she has taken on behalf of the city. We believe that at no time did Mayor Barry or Sgt. Forrest ever attempt to use taxpayer dollars to support their extramarital affair.

“Some of Mayor Barry’s trips were paid for by organizations or foundations that requested her attendance. Any other hotel expense or airfare paid for by Metro was for official business on behalf of the city of Nashville booked through the normal scheduling process.

“On most of the Mayor’s travel, she was with an assigned security detail. Nashville is one of the 25 largest cities in the United States of America, and many mayors throughout the country travel with security detail. Whether for a domestic or an international trip, the protective detail is responsible for advancing the Mayor at meetings and events, understanding security protocols and safe entrances and exits, and ensuring that the Mayor is able to travel safely and keep to the schedule of events. In domestic airports, the protective detail goes through the TSA U-FAN program in order to quickly move through security checkpoints while being armed.

“There were a handful of occasions when Mayor Barry stayed an extra day or two in a city where she traveled. That isn’t unusual; in fact, our tourism industry thrives on people who spend an extra day or two outside of a conference to experience a new city.

“In those few cases, Mayor Barry paid for her own hotel rooms out of personal funds or stayed with family.

“On those few occasions, Sgt. Forrest, in his capacity as the head of her security detail, also stayed those extra nights in a separate hotel room – which were paid for by Metro – because the official schedule would soon resume in that city.

“Those total four nights in 2017, and on each of those nights, Sgt. Forrest did not record on-duty hours that would have resulted in pay or overtime.

“The trips being questioned by the media are her trips to San Francisco for the NewDEAL Ideas Summit in May of 2017, her trip to Kansas City to tour soccer and transit facilities and speak with the Mayor of Kansas City concerning that city’s experiences with these projects, and a trip to Athens, Greece, as a member of the 100 Resilient Cities.

“In San Francisco, Mayor Barry arrived on Sunday for a conference that started on Tuesday after Memorial Day. She traveled early so that she wouldn’t have to travel on Memorial Day and would have time to prepare in advance for the conference. She paid for her own hotel room in San Francisco for the extra night.

“In Athens, the 100RC conference ended on Saturday, and her hotel charges were covered by the Rockefeller Foundation through Saturday night, though she did not have any official business scheduled on that day. She chose to stay one extra day – Sunday – before flying back on Monday. That extra night was funded by her own personal funds, not Metro.

“In Kansas City, Mayor Barry stayed with her mother in Overland Park, Kansas, following official business on Friday; she had a private family memorial service for her son, Max, with family in Kansas on Saturday. That flight was paid for out of personal funds.

“On those four nights without business, Sgt. Forrest had a hotel room paid for by Metro because he needed to be available on a following day for travel. While Mayor Barry paid for her own rooms, or stayed with family, Sgt. Forrest’s rooms were a legitimate business expense because of his need to help facilitate travel for the Mayor on her return home.

“We are also releasing travel schedules from 2015 and 2016.

“You will see a security detail traveled sporadically with Mayor Barry until mid-to-late 2016. This was based on the recommendations of the Police Department that Mayor Barry have police detail on all official business trips, increases in terrorist attacks and mass shootings both domestic and international, and because we had an opportunity to learn what worked best in terms of logistics for travel.

“We have not identified any days during this time period in which the Mayor stayed more than necessary for her official duties.

“To the best of our knowledge, Sgt. Forrest has not claimed overtime or other expenses beyond what was required of him in his official capacities.

“Mayor Barry’s travel was a reflection of our city’s growing prominence on a national and international stage and her desire to learn more from other Mayors and leaders on how best to implement policies and practices that would meet the needs of the people of Nashville. Sgt. Forrest’s travel was a reflection of his role as the head of the Mayor’s security detail and the person primarily responsible for the Mayor’s safety and security.

“As the Mayor has acknowledged, it was inappropriate to start and continue this relationship, but we believe that any and all expenses incurred by either Sgt. Forrest or Mayor Barry were in the course of normal business.

“We will continue to be releasing documents as they become available, and will do our best to answer questions in a timely fashion; however, we will wait to gather as many facts as necessary before commenting in the interest of accuracy.”"

Barry’s Marital Vow-Breaking Consistent with Her Oath-Breaking Hypocrisy on Guns
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
USA – -( “People that we admire can also be flawed humans, and I'm flawed, and I'm incredibly sad and sorry for the disappointment that I will see in those little girls' faces,” Nashville Mayor Megan Barry told The Tennessean Wednesday.  She was talking about being caught in an extramarital affair with the head of her security detail, a situation coinciding with his “retirement” while she still tries to keep her place at the public trough.
Tellingly, her self-serving mea culpa lets slip that she considers herself admired.

Why she should see disappointment in the faces of any little girls remains unexplained. Time was adults sheltered small children from salacious sexual details, but then again, we’re dealing with a “progressive.” Bringing that up though, along with talk of “forgiveness” and “regaining trust,” should resonate with the sob sister constituency. It should also divert attention from concerns about potential criminal conduct, questionable overtime, and solo trips with her lover — including seven days in Athens.

“But, what I hope they can also see is that people make mistakes, and you move on from those,” Barry further equivocated.  Sorry, but a mistake is when you add numbers and forget to carry over to the next column, or read the label wrong and set the oven at 350 instead of 375. Breaking your vows and betraying trust, deliberately, repeatedly and with premeditation, is a choice, and one she knew was hurtful and wrong, yet did anyway.
But it’s not the broken vows gun owners should be outraged over, except as an indicator of a petty tyrant who demands control over others yet will not exercise it over herself. What we should be concerned about is her oath, and repeatedly breaking it is also no “mistake.”
Article. VI. of “the supreme Law of the Land” mandates:
“[A]ll executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution.”
Barry took that pledge as freely as when she promised “I do.”
But while enjoying the benefits of a taxpayer-funded “four-person team in charge of keeping the mayor safe and transporting her to various functions,” Barry was an outspoken citizen disarmament zealot.
Among the infringements she’s publicly called for: Ending private sales, overturning preemption to allow a patchwork quilt of urban (Democrat) bans, opposing open carry, and keeping teachers disarmed so that schools will remain “gun-free” predator-empowerment zones.
It’s no surprise that the husband Barry cheated on for two years is also anti-gun. While he appeared to try and straddle the issue in a recent editorial, it’s clear his sentiments are with the side that disparages the “political and personal liberty” view of the Second Amendment:
“[T]he rest of us see it as a grotesque desecration of the very idea of a free and civilized society.”
If there’s any doubt how he really feels, a recent tweet, complete with blame-apportioning to NRA for school shootings ought to clear things up:

How can you feel sorry for the guy?
It’s ironic, but hardly surprising to observers of “progressive” cognitive dissonance, that when an anti-gun “feminist” made a conscious decision to reject one man and couple with another, she chose the one who is capable of protecting her – with a gun.

The 50,000 member Golden Lampstand Church was detonated with dynamite and demolished by the Chinese government.
On the heels of once again being named one of the worst persecutors of Christians on the planet, the Chinese government used dynamite to blow up and then destroy an evangelical megachurch in one of the neediest regions of the country. The brazen persecution of Christians who do not abide by government-controlled religion is just one example of the inhumane treatment of Christians in many countries today.

A History of Persecution

Bible verses on persecution and suffering | Communist persecution of Christians
Despite being in a low-income area, church members donated $3 million to build the Golden Lampstand Church.
“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.” – 2 Timothy 3:12.
According to reports:
“One of the largest evangelical churches in China was completely demolished in a shocking government campaign on January 9th. Golden Lampstand Church in Shanxi Province has been around for nearly a decade with 50,000 congregants. But it wasn’t registered with the Chinese government.
“It’s an unregistered church, but it was completely paid for by many of the Christians there,” reports Anthony Rhodes with Voice of the Martyrs Canada. “The church has a history of being persecuted by government officials and state police in that area…. Previously, there were harassments and some of their leaders were arrested and interrogated.”
Then, last Tuesday, officers of the People’s Armed Police went to the Golden Lampstand Church and announced because it was an unregistered church building, it would be demolished.
“They actually cleared the church of the congregants and put dynamite in the church and blew the church up. They actually blew up the building and completely destroyed the church. There’s video footage of this happening, and then you see many of the workers cleaning up the rubble and bulldozing what was left of this church.” (source).
As Beginning And End previously reported in our article “Christian Persecution And Genocide ‘Worse Than Any Time In History'”, China was named on Open Doors USA World Watch List, which details the 50 worst nations on the world where Christians are persecuted. Its Communist regime forces all churches to register with the government – who can then monitor, regulate and even instruct pastors on what to preach. On a whim, the government can order a church to remove any crosses displayed on its building and a pastor who resists is met with arrest and imprisonment. Poor Christians families are cut off from government assistance if their churches are in violation of any arbitrary government rule.

Pray for China’s Underground Church Movement

Worst places in the world to be Christian | Bible verses on persecution
Believers worship at an underground church service. Pray for their faith in the face of persecution.
This oppression has helped spawn an underground church movement – where believers risk their freedom, jobs and lives to worship in unregistered churches. The underground church movement has exploded with an estimated 60 million Christians attending nationwide.  These believers live out their faith in Jesus Christ despite knowing that at any moment, an unregistered church can be raised by government authorities and all Christians arrested.  Continue to pray for believers in China to maintain their faith under this oppressive regime and for the light of the gospel to continue to shine in the hearts of those who do not know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.  Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.” – Luke 6:22-23.
The Golden Lampstand Church in China's Shanxi province has been demolished sparking fears of a campaign against Christians. The Golden Lampstand Church is the second church to be demolished in less than a month.

 ABOVE RIGHT: Rev. Alex Dyer, rector of St. Thomas’ Episcopal Parish

A trifecta of resolutions introduced and passed by the Episcopal Diocese of Washington’s annual convention confirm a further politicized and progressive direction in which the denomination is headed.
Embracing progressive themes, delegates to The 123rd Diocesan Convention approved legislative proposals “On Becoming a Sanctuary Diocese: Offering Sacred Welcome to Immigrants,” “On Inclusion of Transgender People,” and “On the Gendered Language for God” at the Washington National Cathedral on Saturday, January 27.
Resolutions were passed in under one hour and were introduced by a small number of delegates. The Rev. Kimberly Lucas, Rector of St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C., and a graduate of liberal Union Theological Seminary in New York, sponsored all three resolutions. Two of the three resolutions were submitted by The Rev. Alex Dyer, rector of St. Thomas’ Episcopal Parish in Washington, D.C. Dyer was briefly notable last year on social media for wrapping banners around construction fences at St. Thomas in which an image of a face-palming Jesus was accompanied by political messages including the tagline “a progressive church for a progressive city.”
According to statistics made available by the Episcopal Church, St. Thomas has declined precipitously in the past five years, shrinking from a weekly attendance of 150 down to 75 (-50%). St. Margaret’s has similarly declined from approximately 240 attendees in 2006 down to 130 (-46%).
In the past decade, weekly attendance in the Diocese of Washington has declined 17 percent. Meanwhile, baptisms have dropped 35 percent and weddings have declined 39 percent. In April, the diocesan clergy conference will hear from an organization assisting churches “to move from a place of plateau or decline to sustained congregational health.”
“Sacred Welcome”
Resolution #1 “On Becoming a Sanctuary Diocese: Offering Sacred Welcome to Immigrants,” was endorsed by the Race and Social Justice Task Force of the Diocese. It read:
Resolved, that the people of the Diocese of Washington, as disciples of Jesus Christ and persons of faith and conscience, take seriously the biblical mandate not to wrong or oppress the alien in our midst, and in faithfulness to our Baptismal Covenant, oppose the policies of the incumbent Executive Branch that target undocumented immigrants for deportation while also placing undue restrictions on refugees seeking safe haven in the U.S.
The resolution was amended to remove reference to the presidency and to change “alien” to “immigrant” out of concern that the former term had a negative connotation (resolutions can be viewed in full here.)
Resolution drafters asserted, “Its passage would send a message of solidarity to the hundreds of immigrants in our midst.”
Transgender Persons
Resolution #2, “On Inclusion of Transgender People” calls upon the diocese to “encourage all parishes to remove all obstacles to full participation in congregational life by making all gender-specific facilities and activities fully accessible, regardless of gender identity and expression.”
Resolution drafters cited the Episcopal Church Baptismal Covenant wording “Will you strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being?” as a basis for transgender advocacy. The statement quickly dived into intersectionality theory, charging “that the intersections of racism, sexism, homophobia and transphobia give rise to discrimination” and that “Fixed boundaries of gender identity are being challenged and churches need to respond.”
The resolution was adopted without debate or discussion.
Gendered Language
Resolution #3, “On the Gendered Language for God,” related to Book of Common Prayer revisions that will potentially be considered by the national church at General Convention this summer:
“…eliminate, when possible, all gendered references to God and to replace them with gender neutral language, and if necessary, to alternate gendered titles when referring to God.”
The resolution was amended to read “…if revision of the Book of Common Prayer is authorized, to utilize expansive language for God from the rich sources of feminine, masculine, and non-binary imagery for God found in Scripture and tradition and, when possible, to avoid the use of gendered pronouns for God.”
“Over the centuries our language and our understanding of God has continued to change and adapt,” the resolution drafters asserted. “Our current gender roles shape and limit our understanding of God. By expanding our language for God, we will expand our image of God and the nature of God. Our new Book of Common Prayer needs to reflect the language of the people and our society … language should not be limited by gendered pronouns when avoidable.”
Clergy delegate The Rev. Linda R. Calkins from St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in Laytonsville, Maryland, brandished a copy of The Inclusive Bible: The First Egalitarian Translation and asked when the Episcopal Church would join with those behind the 2004 translation.
Reading from Genesis Chapter 17, in which God tells Abraham “I am El Shaddai,” Calkins asserted “if we are going to be true to what El Shaddai means, it means God with breasts.”
El Shaddai is traditionally translated to mean “God Almighty,” but The Inclusive Bible reads “..and God said, I am the breasted one.”
“Having studied much feminist theology in my masters’ degrees, I wrote a thesis on liberation and freedom and non-equality in feminist theology and existential counseling,” Calkins told the convention. “And I am still waiting for the Episcopal Church to come to the place where all people feel that they can speak God’s name. Many, many women that I have spoken with over my past almost 20 years in ordained ministry have felt that they could not be a part of any church because of the male image of God that is systemic and that is sustained throughout our liturgies. Many of us are waiting and need to hear God in our language, in our words and in our pronouns.”
(Publisher’s comment: We will be posting more information on this blatant apostasy on Feb. 8th. We need to heed the warning of Paul to the church at Thessalonica:
2Th 2:3  Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
Before the “Man of Sin”, the Anti-Christ is revealed, there will be a great, “Falling away” first.  A great apostasy that will come over the Christian world.)

 Doug Hagmann joins Alex Jones live via Skype to break down the strategy behind the puppeteer-ed stock market 'crash' that is meant to shed doubt across President Trump's America First agenda.
 Media Coordinates Effort To Plunge Stock Market
 The fake news media attempts to trick Americans into crashing the stock market in order to delegitimize Trump's America First Agenda.
 Media Blames Trump For Stock Collapse, 
But Credits Obama For Economy
 Brian Stelter, otherwise known as Pennywise the Clown, gets called out for his severe disregard of journalistic integrity for the pushing of his narrative.

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
The abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) by senior Obama administration officials is “worse than Watergate.” So said House Judiciary Committee member Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa; shown) in January. King based his comments on his reading of the FISA memo, whose much anticipated release to the public occurred Friday. And since Watergate led to history’s only resignation of an American president, we should ask: is King’s pronouncement risible or right? Let’s contrast and compare.
For a brief history, courtesy of, the “Watergate scandal began early in the morning of June 17, 1972, when several burglars were arrested in the office of the Democratic National Committee, located in the Watergate complex of buildings in Washington, D.C. This was no ordinary robbery: The prowlers were connected to President Richard Nixon’s reelection campaign, and they had been caught wiretapping phones and stealing documents.”
As for current events, the FISA memo relates the surveillance of former Donald Trump campaign advisor Carter Page. As Bloomberg reports, the “memo says that the FBI presented an opposition research dossier as evidence to a secret court for warrants to spy on Page beginning in October 2016. The bureau did not tell the court that this dossier was paid for by the Democratic Party and the Hillary Clinton campaign through cutouts. Senior officials at the bureau and the Justice Department knew all of this, but declined to tell the judge who approved the warrant, according to the memo.”
The dossier was a compilation of reports by ex-British spy Christopher Steele, who used uncorroborated information provided, ironically, by anonymous Russian sources. The Washington Examiner gives us more detail, writing:
• The Steele dossier formed an essential part of the initial and all three renewal FISA applications against Carter Page.
• Andrew McCabe confirmed that no FISA warrant would have been sought from the FISA Court without the Steele dossier information.
• The four FISA surveillance applications were signed by, in various combinations, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Sally Yates, Dana Boente, and Rod Rosenstein.
• The FBI authorized payments to Steele for work on the dossier. The FBI terminated its agreement with Steele in late October when it learned, by reading an article in Mother Jones, that Steele was talking to the media.
• The political origins of the Steele dossier were known to senior DOJ and FBI officials, but excluded from the FISA applications.
• DOJ official Bruce Ohr met with Steele beginning in the summer of 2016 and relayed to DOJ information about Steele's bias. Steele told Ohr that he, Steele, was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected president and was passionate about him not becoming president.
Note that Steele was also funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign.
So we can see similarities and differences between Watergate and the FISA abuse. Both occurred in the midst of a presidential election campaign. Both involved the executive branch of government spying on member[s] of the opposition party who were seeking the White House, perhaps to gather dirt on them. Both used illegal means to effect that spying. Both involved paying ex-spies (ex-CIA agent E. Howard Hunt, for instance, in Nixon’s case) to make mischief.
As for the differences, the FISA abuse was perpetrated by government agencies while the Watergate break-in was the handiwork of the president’s campaign operatives. (Of course, if Nixon had FISA at his disposal, he might have been able to weaponize government agencies, too.) Also note that when campaign operatives surveil, it’s called spying; when government agencies spy, it’s called surveillance.
Another difference is that Nixon took aggressive steps to cover up the crime afterwards, which led to his downfall. In the FISA-abuse case, we don’t yet know if Barack Obama will be implicated.
There’s another notable fact: Whomever Page communicated with — which could have included Trump campaign officials — would have gotten caught up in the surveillance as well. Moreover, more information will be released in the future, which may or may not point to even wider surveillance.
The new information may include the Democrats’ “perspective” on the FISA court application, mind you. Of course, the Democrats don’t exactly have great credibility here. They just spent a week lying to the American people, claiming the “memo was full of ‘classified information’ and releasing it would expose ‘our spying methods,’” as FrontPage Mag’s Daniel Greenfield put it. He then wryly opined, “By ‘our,’ they didn’t mean American spying methods. They meant Obama’s spying methods.”
Greenfield later wrote that the “Clinton campaign had enlisted figures in the FBI and the DOJ to manipulate an election. The coup against America operated as a ‘state within a state’ inside the United States government.” If this is true, the FISA abuse is indeed far, far worse than Watergate.
Below is a very good summation of the FISA memo’s contents by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson.
