Will the BLM riots lead us into another civil war?!?

https://youtu.be/BbxmzRc6OGc

Glenn Beck

Are we headed to a 2nd Civil War? The Democrats plan to cheat in the 2020 election with mail-in voting, violent BLM riots plague the streets of America's cities, and the Mainstream Media is outright lying to the American people. We are living through very troubled times and it only looks like things are getting worse. ► Click HERE to subscribe to Glenn Beck https://bit.ly/2UVLqhL ►Click HERE to subscribe to BlazeTV: https://www.blazetv.com/glenn Connect with Glenn on Social Media: http://twitter.com/glennbeck http://instagram.com/glennbeck http://facebook.com/glennbeck

Подробный анализ предпосылок и причин организации и осуществления геноцида армян 1915г. в Османской Турции: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NkYub...

AGHET -- A Genocide [produced by NDR (German public television)] is a new award-winning documentary made by German filmmaker Eric Friedler which compellingly proves the truth of the genocide of the Armenian people. Using the actual words of 23 German, American and other nationals who witnessed the events, and armed with archival materials, AGHET expertly takes on the challenge that PM Erdogan hurled at the world by stating: »Prove it.« AGHET incorporates never-before-seen footage and documents -- making it one of the best researched and presented documentaries on the Armenian Genocide. More than just a historic retelling of the Genocide, the film also delves into the ongoing campaign of denial that the Turkish government has mounted since these events occurred in World War I. AGHET was debuted on NDR in April, 2010. Friedler has assembled an impeccable cast, who bring to life the original texts of German and U.S. diplomatic dispatches and eyewitness accounts, interspersed with never-before-seen footage of the Genocide and its political aftermath. The film, applauded by Nobel Prize laureate Gunter Grass, has sparked renewed debate throughout Europe. It is now being showcased around the world on television, in major film festivals and has been seen by members of the U.S. Congress. AGHET represents a significant contribution to political and cultural awareness not only for Armenians worldwide, but also more importantly for the non-Armenian world community.

Pritzker Military Presents  Washington's Immortals

Washington's Immortals: The Untold Story of an Elite Regiment Who Changed the Course of the Revolution by Patrick K. O'Donnell

In August 1776, little over a month after the Continental Congress had formally declared independence from Great Britain, General George Washington’s young army faced off against over 20,000 British and Hessian soldiers at the Battle of Brooklyn. This was the largest battle of the Revolution, and with the Americans outmanned and outmaneuvered, it was almost the end of the war, as well. But thanks to a series of desperate bayonet charges by a single heroic regiment from Maryland, known as the “Immortal 400,” Washington was able to retreat and regroup. He evacuated his men to Manhattan, and the Continental Army lived to fight another day.

Robert Kiyosaki- Don’t Get Manipulated, America Headed for Totalitarianism, Will Flee with Gold.

 

Robert Kiyosaki: America headed for totalitarianism, will flee country with gold (Pt. 1/2)

Kitco NEWS

The U.S. used to be a capitalist country, but is now becoming a Marxist society, said Robert Kiyosaki, best-selling author of “Rich Dad Poor Dad.” Kiyosaki was a veteran of the Vietnam War who had seven uncles fighting in World War 2. “I fought for capitalism,” he said. “America is going Marxist.” Watch part 2 of this interview: https://youtu.be/3LXNI3UZW38

 

Robert Kiyosaki says don’t make this financial mistake and get ‘manipulated’ (Pt. 2/2)

https://youtu.be/3LXNI3UZW38

Kitco NEWS

Too many people have fallen into the trap of investing in U.S. Treasuries and putting their money in pensions, thinking that these assets are safe investments, said best-selling author Robert Kiyosaki. Kiyosaki referred to these assets as “fake money” and detailed how investors can differentiate between “real” and “fake” assets in his book “FAKE: Fake Money, Fake Teachers, Fake Assets: How Lies Are Making the Poor and Middle Class.” “The problem with my generation is that they think that what is safe is U.S. Treasuries,” Kiyosaki told Kitco News. “Treasuries are how the Fed and the Treasury manipulate the markets, and they’ve wiped out savers.” Watch part 1 of this interview: https://youtu.be/Yd6AZnpBdeM __________________________________________________________________ Kitco News is the world’s #1 source of metals market information.

The Sociopath Next Door by Martha Stout

The Sociopath Next Door by Martha Stout

This selection serves as an introduction to this fine book. Purchase the book or audio book on Audible. 

Who is the devil you know?

Is it your lying, cheating ex-husband?
Your sadistic high school gym teacher?
Your boss who loves to humiliate people in meetings?
The colleague who stole your idea and passed it off as her own?

In the pages of The Sociopath Next Door, you will realize that your ex was not just misunderstood. He’s a sociopath. And your boss, teacher, and colleague? They may be sociopaths too.

We are accustomed to think of sociopaths as violent criminals, but in The Sociopath Next Door, Harvard psychologist Martha Stout reveals that a shocking 4 percent of ordinary people—one in twenty-five—has an often undetected mental disorder, the chief symptom of which is that that person possesses no conscience. He or she has no ability whatsoever to feel shame, guilt, or remorse. One in twenty-five everyday Americans, therefore, is secretly a sociopath. They could be your colleague, your neighbor, even family. And they can do literally anything at all and feel absolutely no guilt.

How do we recognize the remorseless? One of their chief characteristics is a kind of glow or charisma that makes sociopaths more charming or interesting than the other people around them. They’re more spontaneous, more intense, more complex, or even sexier than everyone else, making them tricky to identify and leaving us easily seduced. Fundamentally, sociopaths are different because they cannot love. Sociopaths learn early on to show sham emotion, but underneath they are indifferent to others’ suffering. They live to dominate and thrill to win.

The fact is, we all almost certainly know at least one or more sociopaths already. Part of the urgency in reading The Sociopath Next Door is the moment when we suddenly recognize that someone we know—someone we worked for, or were involved with, or voted for—is a sociopath. But what do we do with that knowledge? To arm us against the sociopath, Dr. Stout teaches us to question authority, suspect flattery, and beware the pity play. Above all, she writes, when a sociopath is beckoning, do not join the game.

It is the ruthless versus the rest of us, and The Sociopath Next Door will show you how to recognize and defeat the devil you know.

What Brings Us to Believe That Christianity Is the Exclusive Way to Truth?

https://youtu.be/3N77D4dUgP4

Ravi Zacharias International Ministries

A student asks Ravi Zacharias and Abdu Murray this important question at an Open Forum at Yale.

 

Why are you so afraid of subjective moral reasoning?

https://youtu.be/0218GkAGbnU

Ravi Zacharias International Ministries

During an open forum at the University of Pennsylvania Ravi Zacharias and Nabeel Qureshi were asked:"Why are you so afraid of subjective moral reasoning? Do you think we all are just going to start raping and pillaging just because we don't have a book telling us what to do? Are you afraid of that? I'm not because that's not what we are going to do. Yes, Nazis were bad but there were Christian Nazis and atheist Nazis. So I don't see... What are you so afraid of?" To this Ravi quickly replied, "Do you lock your doors at night?" Watch his full response in the video above.

 

Why is Christianity right?

Metamorphosis - The Beauty and Design of Butterflies. Documentary.

 

Throughout history butterflies have fascinated artists and philosophers, scientists and schoolchildren with their profound mystery and beauty. In Metamorphosis you will explore their remarkable world as few ever have before. Spectacular photography, computer animation and magnetic resonance imaging open once hidden doors to every stage of a butterfly's life-cycle. From an egg the size of a pinhead to a magnificent flying insect. It is a transformation so incredible biologists have called it "butterfly magic." The superbly engineered body of a butterfly is magnified hundreds of times to reveal compound eyes made of thousands of individual lenses, wings covered with microscopic solar panels that warm the insect's muscles for flight, and navigational systems that unerringly guide Monarch butterflies on their annual migration from Canada to Mexico. How did these extraordinary creatures come into being? Are they the products of a blind, undirected process? Or, were they designed by an intelligence that transcends the material world? Filmed in the rain forests of Ecuador, Mexico's Trans-Volcanic mountain range, and leading research centers, Metamorphosis is an unforgettable documentary filled with the joys of discovery and wonder.

Ivermectin triple therapy is 'amazingly effective' in treating COVID-19

Doctor claims Ivermectin triple therapy is 'amazingly effective' in treating COVID-19

https://youtu.be/93jI7Gl3yic

Sky News Australia

Gastroenterologist Professor Thomas Borody says the Australian government should allow the clinical trials of a drug he says is “amazingly effective” in treating the deadly coronavirus COVID-19. Professor Borody says Ivermectin, used in conjunction with two other drugs, has so-far been extremely successful in treating the deadly pathogen. The drug is Federal Drug Agency and World Health Organisation approved; it is widely used for parasitic infections. However, Professor Borody told Sky News despite early result showing the drug is a successful COVID-19 treatment, he has been met with a “very negative reaction” by the federal government when he suggests the drug should be subjected to rigorous clinical trials.

 

Ivermectin treatment is a ‘real killer of coronavirus’: Professor

https://youtu.be/F6A6RFDprIs

Sky News Australia

Gastroenterologist Professor Thomas Borody says Ivermectin used in conjunction with two other drugs is making it look like “corona is very simple to kill”. The drug is Federal Drug Agency and World Health Organisation approved; it is widely used for parasitic infections and is being cited and prescribed as treatment against the deadly coronavirus. “It has very few side effects, and is a real killer of coronavirus,” Professor Borody told Sky News host Chris Kenny.

 

Medical News | Australian Researcher: Triple Therapy (Ivermectin, Zinc, Doxycycline) for COVID-19

https://youtu.be/MZRyzEhh2nk

TrialSite News

Well-Respected Australian Researcher: Consider Triple Therapy (#Ivermectin, Zinc, #Doxycycline) for COVID-19: Thomas Borody touts FDA and Australian food and drug authority TGA approved Ivermectin, which he reports to use regularly in his hospital as it evidences positive results for #COVID19 and should be used immediately to fight the pandemic. The developer of the world’s first cure for peptic ulcers, which saved millions of lives worldwide, employed the same methodology to come up with the Ivermectin triple therapy. With over 30 formal clinical trials, many dozens of observational real-world initiatives and hundreds to possibly thousands of doctors already using the medicine, a particular momentum gains speed for additional randomized controlled trials and, just as importantly, a more serious dialogue about the potential of this approach for pragmatic and economical treatment options for COVID-19. https://www.trialsitenews.com/well-re...   TrialSite News Documentary: TrialSite have produced a documentary on this very topic in South America and will be releasing it to the public by this Friday. In this TrialSite production out of Peru we take an objective probe into the situation in Peru: how did Ivermectin become approved as a drug targeting COVID-19? What data was used as evidence to validate such a decision? Has consensus been met there on the approval or is there debate? https://youtu.be/vzO_9TX5vXc RLF-100 (Aviptadil) Associated with Rapid Respiratory Failure Recovery Among COVID-19 Patients: Last week we touched on this subject of RLF-100 and this week, we’ll continue to expand on this story. NeuroRX, Inc. and Relief Therapeutics Holdings AG announced that the investigational therapy RLF-100 (Aviptadil) showed evidence of rapid recovery from respiratory failure in the most critically ill patients with COVID-19. In parallel, an independent group of researchers have reported that Aviptadil blocked replication of SARS-CoV-2 in human lung cells and monocytes. The drug has been granted Fast Track designation by FDA and is being developed as a Material Threat Medical Countermeasure in cooperation with the National Institutes of Health and other federal agencies. https://www.trialsitenews.com/rlf-100... Russia’s Gamaleya Vaccine Approved by Russian Health Authorities: The Russian Health Ministry has approved the world’s first COVID-19 vaccine after fewer than two months of formal human clinical trials. TrialSite News has been following the Gamaleya National Research Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology (Gamaleya Institute) vaccine effort, and it is suspected that the Russians introduced some form of intensive human challenge trial that started with scientists and perhaps military personnel and then included broader groups, even an elite “VIP” group cohort. Now Russia’s President, Vladimir Putin, proudly declared to all via a televised video conference call with government ministers: “This morning, for the first time in the word, a vaccine against the new coronavirus was registered” in Russia. Putin, in anticipation of the critics, emphatically declared, “I would like to repeat that it has passed all the necessary tests.” https://www.trialsitenews.com/gamaley... The Need for Convalescent Plasma in TN: Research is proving convalescent plasma can help those that have COVID-19 recover faster. However, Ballad Health is having to outsource plasma from other regions due to a lack in local donations, but one Northeast Tennessee native is making the most of an unfortunate situation. https://www.trialsitenews.com/the-nee...

Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences by Jeffrey Long and  Paul Perry.

This Audiobook selection serves as an introduction to this fine book. Purchase the book at your favorite book store on on Audible . Highly Recommended by ACU.

About the book-

“There is currently more scientific evidence to the reality of near death experience (NDE) than there is for how to effectively treat certain forms of cancer,” states radiation oncologist Dr. Jeffrey Long is his groundbreaking new book Evidence of the Afterlife. In 1998 Dr. Long and his wife, Jody, began the Near Death Experience Research Foundation with the goal of creating a forum for near death “experiencers” to share their stories. Grounded in first-hand evidence culled from over 1,600 verified NDE accounts, Evidence of the Afterlife presents the strongest argument yet for the underlying truth of those who have died and returned to share their tales.

The Cultural Revolution: A People's History, 1962―1976 by Frank Dikötter

The concluding volume--following Mao's Great Famine and The Tragedy of Liberation--in Frank Dikötter's award-winning trilogy chronicling the Communist revolution in China.

After the economic disaster of the Great Leap Forward that claimed tens of millions of lives from 1958–1962, an aging Mao Zedong launched an ambitious scheme to shore up his reputation and eliminate those he viewed as a threat to his legacy. The Cultural Revolution's goal was to purge the country of bourgeois, capitalistic elements he claimed were threatening genuine communist ideology. Young students formed the Red Guards, vowing to defend the Chairman to the death, but soon rival factions started fighting each other in the streets with semiautomatic weapons in the name of revolutionary purity. As the country descended into chaos, the military intervened, turning China into a garrison state marked by bloody purges that crushed as many as one in fifty people.

The Cultural Revolution: A People's History, 1962–1976 draws for the first time on hundreds of previously classified party documents, from secret police reports to unexpurgated versions of leadership speeches. After the army itself fell victim to the Cultural Revolution, ordinary people used the political chaos to resurrect the market and hollow out the party's ideology. By showing how economic reform from below was an unintended consequence of a decade of violent purges and entrenched fear, The Cultural Revolution casts China's most tumultuous era in a wholly new light.
