A ‘tsunami’ of store closings expected to hit retail

WEB Notes: E-commerce is bringing in more customers, however it’s not suddenly taking over. Sales are down for retailers big time. It couldn’t have anything to do with the 92 million American’s no longer in the labor force could it? Or the continued collapse of the Baltic Dry Index?

(CBS) – Get ready for the next era in retail—one that will be characterized by far fewer shops and smaller stores. On Tuesday, Sears said that it will shutter its flagship store in downtown Chicago in April. It’s the latest of about 300 store closures in the U.S. that Sears has made since 2010. The news follows announcements earlier this month of multiple store closings from major department stores J.C. Penney and Macy’s.

Why is US Buying $1 Billion Worth of Russian Helicopters for Afghan Military?

WEB Notes: Remember Obama was caught on a hot mic stating to then Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, “After my election I have more flexibility.”

Flashback: (Video, Huffington Post) – The deal looked sketchy from the start. To outfit Afghanistan’s security forces with new helicopters, the Pentagon bypassed U.S. companies and turned instead to Moscow for dozens of Russian Mi-17 rotorcraft at a cost of more than $1 billion.

Wall Street adviser: Actual unemployment is 37.2%, ‘misery index’ worst in 40 years

(Video, Examiner) – Don’t believe the happy talk coming out of the White House, Federal Reserve and Treasury Department when it comes to the real unemployment rate and the true “Misery Index.” Because, according to an influential Wall Street advisor, the figures are a fraud.

In a memo to clients provided to Secrets, David John Marotta calculates the actual unemployment rate of those not working at a sky-high 37.2 percent, not the 6.7 percent advertised by the Fed, and the Misery Index at over 14, not the 8 claimed by the government.

55 Million Babies Murdererd Since Roe v. Wade

(Life News) – What can I say that hasn’t already been said about today? Yesterday evening, I was sitting in my living room working while watching my sons play. I began to think about what my life would have been without them. How different I would be. How their lives have already made this world a different place since they were born. How much I would hurt if I had chosen abortion.

Then, I thought of the more than 55,000,000 lives that have been taken in the U.S. since 1973, and I became overwhelmed at the tragedy. Tragedy for the babies, their mothers, their fathers, families, and us.

WEB Notes: The perplexity of nations continues.

Luke 21:25  “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;”

Do you understand what comes upon the earth when the Heavens are shaken?

Syria crisis: evidence of ‘industrial-scale killing’ by regime spurs call for war crimes charges

WEB Notes: This story breaks the day before scheduled peace talks between Syria and the foreign backed rebels. Coincidence? Absolutely not, this was a planned release. We should note, there would be no “civil war” if the West was not funding the opposition to Syria. Further, if the world is so concerned about this alleged evidence why are they not concerned about the death and slave camps in China? Because that would be bad for business of course. Why is the world not concerned about the actions of the organ eating rebels, and here, and here?

(The Guardian) – Syrian government officials could face war crimes charges in the light of a huge cache of evidence smuggled out of the country showing the “systematic killing” of about 11,000 detainees, according to three eminent international lawyers.

The three, former prosecutors at the criminal tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Sierra Leone, examined thousands of Syrian government photographs and files recording deaths in the custody of regime security forces from March 2011 to last August.

A “Davos” World In Which The 85 Richest People Have The Same Wealth As Half The World’s Population

(ZeroHedge) – There is something morbidly gruesome and ironic in having the world’s wealthiest people, among them the presidents and central bank heads of the world’s most “advanced” nations, as well as the CEOs of the biggest corporations, sitting down in Davos – a place where the press passes alone cost thousands of dollars – and discussing global inequality: the same inequality that their policies and principles are responsible for. It is even more morbid when one considers that according to a recent Oxfam report, one that will be used in Davos itself, the disparity in wealth between the haves and the have nots has reached absolutely record proportions, surpassing any previous inequality gaps seen before and during the Great Depression.

Geneva 2: UN retracts Iran’s invite, Syrian opposition confirms attendance

WEB Notes: The peace talks continue for now. Yesterday, Iran’s interim peace deal started with a permanent solution scheduled within six months. If there is a permanent peace deal it will not stand. There will be no peace (1 Thes 5:3).

(RT) – The UN has withdrawn an invitation for Iran to the January 22 Geneva 2 peace conference after Syria’s main Western-backed opposition group threatened to pull out of talks if the Islamic Republic attends.

A UN spokesperson announced Monday that UN chief Ban Ki-moon has withdrawn his invitation for Iran.

Combat zone Kiev: Police move to force rioters off streets

(Video, RT) – Tension remains high in Kiev, as rioting radicals and Ukraine’s riot police continue their stand-off in the center of the town. Over two hundred people have been injured in scuffles, half of them law officers hurt by rocks and Molotov cocktails.

The stand-off in the Ukrainian capital is continuing into its third day in Hrushevsky Street, a small area in the vicinity of the national Parliament building, which is the focus of anti-government rioting.
“We have seen Molotov cocktails being thrown at the police, firecrackers, small bombs exploding from time to time. It is still definitely a hotbed of tension,” RT’s Aleksey Yaroshevsky reported from the scene.

Proof of God Through Creation and History

Proof of God Through Creation and History - Earth Painted by God's Hand

By: Brandon T. Ward

In this article we are going to discuss evolution, nature, the universe, history and the Bibles proofs of God. We would like to state that it is our contention that much of the unbelief in the Almighty can be attributed to false teaching in the churches of today. This is why it is extremely important that we all pick up the Bible and read it for ourselves. Only then can we verify if what we are told about God and the Bible are true and correct.

World powers, Iran to activate landmark nuclear deal after IAEA nod

WEB Notes: This interim peace deal starts today while permanent negotiations will last six month by the six world powers in hopes of a permanent peace deal. We know there will not be peace, it will get close as 1 Thessalonians 5:3 tells us, but then it falls a part.

(From The Trenches) – World powers and Iran are due to start implementing a landmark deal on Monday curbing Tehran’s nuclear program, amid hopes that it will pave the way for a broad settlement of a decade-old standoff and ease fears of a new Middle East war.

If, as expected, the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog confirms in the morning that Iran is meeting its end of the agreement, the European Union and the United States will later in the day suspend some economic sanctions in return.
