Iran’s Rouhani: “We Are Not Dismantling Our Nuclear Facilities; Iran Will Maintain Its Uranium Enrichment Programme”

(ZeroHedge) – In case there was any confusion just how “historic” last week’s agreement with Iran, loudly trumpeted by the Obama administration as the most “historic” since Syria in a, well, long time, truly was in terms of curbing Iran’s nuclear ambitions, here is the explanation straight from the horse’s mouth i.e., Iran president Hassan Rouhani who spoke today in an interview with the FT. “Mr Rouhani struck a tough line on Iran’s expectations over a comprehensive nuclear deal to be negotiated following last weekend’s landmark interim pact.

One hundred per cent [no],” he said when asked about dismantling nuclear facilities.” So ixnay on the ismantleday. What about halting Uranium enrichment – that other pillar of Obama (and Hollande’s of course) historic agreement? “[Rouhani] made clear that Tehran was determined to maintain a uranium enrichment programme for peaceful purposes.” In other words, Iran will continue doing what it said it did before, only this time it will get billions of implicit subsidies as various embargoes are lifted.

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Puts Drag Queens on Display

WEB Notes: The fall of our society and nation cannot be in doubt. When these types of things are openly put on display there is a real attempt to pollute the minds of our people and children. Even a child is wise enough to ask, “Dad why is that man dressed up like a woman?” Yet adults openly accept and promote this type of behavior. This is a very act against nature itself.

(Video, WND) – Snoopy, Spider-Man, SpongeBob — the iconic big balloons of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade took to the air Thursday at half their standard height due to high winds — but spirits of the young spectators were still flying high at the sight of their favorite cartoon characters.

Wide-eyed kids looked with wonder as the massive floats slowly wound down the streets of New York City.

Black Friday: A Shameful Orgy Of Materialism For A Morally Bankrupt Nation

WEB Notes: If this is how people treat their fellow man when they have a full belly… Imagine how they will treat their fellow man when they are hungry… The world’s economies are bankrupt my friends. Don’t let the stock market fool you, the Government is printing money by the billions in order to keep this show going on. It is a system being propped up by sticks and duck tape.

(Video, Activist Post) – It has been called “America’s most disturbing holiday”.  Black Friday is the day when millions of average Americans wait outside retail stores in the middle of the night in the freezing cold to spend more money that they do not have for more cheap Chinese-made products that they do not need.  It is a day when the rest of the world makes fun of Americans for behaving like “rabid animals” and “zombies” as we indulge in a tsunami of greed.  It truly is a shameful orgy of materialism for a morally bankrupt nation.

Bank Glitch Causes Declined Cards Across Southern Colorado

WEB Notes: When your money is in a digital form anyone can manipulate it or even honest mistakes can happen as what appears to be the case in this article. In either case it can leave you without your hard earned money. Shouldn’t you have a backup plan in case? Use your mind folks, do not be at the mercy of anyone.

(KKTV11) – As millions of Americans headed out for some Black Friday shopping, customers of Academy Bank were hit with some shocking news about their accounts.

Their cards were declined.

11 News received call after call Friday morning from customers all over the area with the same complaint about transactions that had been run multiple times. In one case, we received a report of an ATM fee that ran 70 times.

No Polio in the Philippines Since 1993, But Mass Polio Vaccination Program Targeted for 500,000 Typhoon Victims Under Age 5

WEB Notes: We just witnessed this in Syria as well. After the “peace agreement” with the U.N. in came the “medical care.”

(Video, From The Trenches) – In the aftermath of one of the strongest storms to ever strike land, the most dangerous place for children in the Philippines to be right now could very well be the evacuation centers, or living near one.

This past week, the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF began an aggressive program to vaccinate more than 500,000 children with the measles and polio vaccines in the typhoon affected areas of the Philippines. They have already vaccinated more than 30,000 children in Tacolban, one of the worst hit areas.

‘Israel, US to stage large-scale military drill when Iran nuclear deal expires’

WEB Notes: This further confirms there is no real intent at peace with Iran. This is merely a facade for the inhabitants of the world. One last attempt at peace which will ultimately fail and then the only “reasonable” solution will be war with Iran to make the world a “safe place” again. This has been the plan all along. God’s Word is coming to pass daily, get into His Word in order to understand the events taking place…

(JP) – Israel and the United States will stage a large-scale military exercise toward the end of the six-month period in which the interim agreement between the P5+1 powers and Iran takes effect, Time magazine reported on Thursday.

The drill is intended to signal to the Iranians that while the West may prefer diplomacy to solve the nuclear stalemate, it is still keeping the military option alive should the need arise to use force in order to deny the Islamic Republic a nuclear weapons capability.

Islamic extremists slaughter at least 71 Christians in Nigeria

WEB Notes: Our Christian brothers and sisters continue to be murdered around the globe. This trend is increasing and Western Governments of the world are assisting with these hateful acts. We see that in Syria, where Western Governments are destabilizing Syria which is leading to the destruction of Christianity there. We see it in Libya and we have already seen it occur in Iraq. Please pray for the safety of our brothers and sisters in harms way.

(Christian Today) – Suspected Muslim herdsmen slaughtered 37 Christians in coordinated attacks on four Plateau state villages early this morning after Boko Haram terrorists killed at least 34 Christians in Borno state earlier this month, sources said.

“The attackers killed 13 persons in Katu Kapang, eight in Daron, nine in Tul and seven others in Rawuru,” he said.

The 10 Corporations That Control Almost Everything You Buy

(ZeroHedge) – We know the ten “people” that run the world, that 25 cities represent over half the world’s GDP, and that the world’s billionaires control a stunning $33 trillion in net worth… but who controls what the average joe-sixpack on Main Street buys? As PolicyMic notes, these ten mega corporations control the output of almost everything we buy – from household products to pet food and from jeans to jello. The so-called “Illusion of Choice,” that these corporations (and their nepotistic inter-relationships) create is remarkable…

Nuclear Deal With Iran Prelude to War, Not “Breakthrough”

WEB Notes: This is exactly what we have been saying. There will be no peace, this is only a ploy to make it appear as though peace was attempted (1 Thes 5:3). The scriptures are coming to pass daily. Are you paying attention to them (Daniel 8)?

(Infowars) – “…any military operation against Iran will likely be very unpopular around the world and require the proper international context—both to ensure the logistical support the operation would require and to minimize the blowback from it.

The best way to minimize international opprobrium and maximize support (however, grudging or covert) is to strike only when there is a widespread conviction that the Iranians were given but then rejected a superb offer—one so good that only a regime determined to acquire nuclear weapons and acquire them for the wrong reasons would turn it down. Under those circumstances, the United States (or Israel) could portray its operations as taken in sorrow, not anger, and at least some in the international community would conclude that the Iranians “brought it on themselves” by refusing a very good deal.”

Sanica villagers panic as fish-filled pond vanishes into gigantic, moonlike ‘abyss’

(National Post) – Just outside the rustic village, children fished in a tranquil pond bobbing with green algae and lined with willow trees, as cattle grazed nearby.

Now, Rezak Motanic gazes in disbelief down a gigantic moonlike crater where the pond used to be. It’s like something from a science fiction movie: a sinkhole swallowed the water, the fish and even nearby trees.
