Forty-five years ago today, two men finished walking on the moon after two and a half hours. They then began the second most important part of their trip: coming back alive.

Forty-five years ago, two men (Neil A. Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin) set foot on a different world. It was the greatest moment in the history of exploration, and a moment men had anticipated for nearly a century.

Forty-five years ago this month, with even the days of the week aligning as they did, three men flew a mission called Apollo 11. All three were veteran astronauts, one of the few missions that few with all-veteran crews. NASA needed veterans for this job. Because for the first time, men would land on another world.

Leadership: epic fail!

When a plane like this was shot down over Ukraine, de facto President Obama failed of leadership.

Two days ago, rebel forces in eastern Ukraine shot down an unarmed civilian airliner. Our de facto President barely acknowledged this. He was on his way to yet another fundraiser. Now we know the Russian Federation supplied the weapon the rebels used and even took it back into Russia. Barack Obama has barely answered this, and his answer lacks luster. All this goes to show his worst failing in the office he holds: he lacks leadership.

Exactly 45 years ago at the time of posting (Wednesday July 16, 1969, 13:32 UTC), Apollo 11 blasted off for the moon. At least one gaming developer rates this as a wonder of the world. One can rightly wonder whether America, or anyone in the world, can ever do this kind of project again. Today begins a day-by-day look back at that historic mission.

NAFTA complicity with aliens

Flag of Mexico. Symbol of the Obama alien invasion?

Most Americans have ignored a big player in the “immigration crisis” on America’s southern border. But today Jerome R. Corsi at WND reminded his readers of that player. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has done as much as, or more than, the de facto President in bringing illegal aliens by the trainload – literally – to American soil. And lately the American company that means “NAFTA Railroad” now faces criminal charges – in Mexico.

Calendar: from 360 to 365

Amenemhet I

When did human beings adopt a 365-day year? Why does a circle have 360 degrees in it? What does one question have to do with the other? The answer has to do with the Global Flood, and how that Flood forced a change in the calendar, long after it happened.

Hobby Lobby wins for us all

Supreme Court rules for Hobby Lobby

The Hobby Lobby store chain, and more particularly the family that holds all its shares, won their case before the United States Supreme Court. They do not have to give any good or service, as a benefit to those who work for them, when such giving would break their religious faith.

Cycle of tyrants and nations

Benito Mussolini in Yugoslavia

 

God, if you are there, strike me dead!

– Italian dictator Benito Mussolini

Many years later God did accommodate when the tyrant Mussolini and his mistress were condemned to death. Mussolini said, “Let me save my life and I will give you an empire!” then began shouting “No, No.” They were both executed along with main members of his cabinet on April 29, 1945. Their bodies were savagely beaten then hung upside down at an Esso gas station in the Plazzale Loreto in Milan.

Iraq in Bible prophecy?

Whore of Babylon. Future of Iraq?

While many preachers say that all biblical prophecies have been fulfilled, there are a few that remain unfulfilled and are puzzling – especially the ones that prophesy about Iraq. Don’t bother looking for the word “Iraq” in your Bible. You won’t find it. You will, however you will find Babylon, which is modern day Iraq. But don’t be confused, the Bible speaks about two Babylons – the physical country of Iraq and “mystery” Babylon, which is a one world government. For these purposes, only physical Iraq is being discussed.
