“Once upon a time, before Memorial Day inspired thoughts of a weekday at the beach, it marked an opportunity to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of America.”

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s military service.
It’s difficult to prove conclusively the origins of the day. It’s more likely that it had many separate beginnings; each of those towns and every planned or spontaneous gathering of people to honor the war dead in the 1860’s tapped into the general human need to honor our dead.

Memorial Day was officially proclaimed on May 5, 1868 by General John Logan, and was first observed on May 30, 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. After World War I, the holiday changed from honoring just those who died fighting
in the Civil War, to honoring Americans who died fighting in any war.

Traditional observance of Memorial Day has diminished over the years. Many Americans nowadays have forgotten the meaning and traditions of Memorial Day. At many cemeteries, the graves of the fallen are increasingly ignored, neglected. Most people no longer remember the proper flag etiquette for the day. While there are towns and cities that still hold Memorial Day parades, many have not held a parade in decades. Some people think the day is for honoring any and all dead, and not just those fallen in service to our country.

The “National Moment of Remembrance” resolution was passed on Dec. 2000, which asks that at 3 p.m. local time, for all Americans “To voluntarily and informally observe in their own way a Moment of remembrance and respect, pausing from whatever they are doing for a moment of silence or listening to ‘Taps.”

The Moment of Remembrance is a step in the right direction to returning the meaning back to the day. What is needed is a full return to the original day of observance. Set aside one day out of the year for the nation to get together to remember, reflect and honor those who have given their all in service to their country.

Across the U.S. this weekend, Americans are honoring the fallen, veterans, and military personnel in ceremonies and private remembrances.

May God bless our service men and women and their families on this Memorial Day.

JPost: “In a huge blow to Israel, Dutch Foreign Minister Bert Koenders announced Thursday that calls to boycott the Jewish state fall within the limits of free speech, undermining intensive Israeli diplomatic efforts to sway European capitals to outlaw the Boycott, Sanctions and Divestment Movement.”

Statements or meetings concerning BDS are protected by freedom of expression and freedom of assembly, as enshrined in the Dutch Constitution and the European Convention on Human Rights,” Koenders said Thursday during a debate on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict at the Dutch parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee in  the Hague.

He added that the Dutch government has explained to Israel that it opposes any boycott against it, but that BDS endorsement is a free speech issue. Sweden recently made a similar declaration.”

Opinion: In a response to our post on world leaders being rattled by Donald Trump’s candidacy, one off our readers, Shelly, sent in a quote from Benjamin Franklin that makes the case against labeling BDS as hate speech.

“Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech.”

BDS is the essence of anti-Semitism. It wants to destroy Israel economically and literally starve it out of existence. I may find it repugnant but it is free speech.

In recent weeks the Attorney General of the United States has said she is considering legal action against:

  • Anti-transgender speech
  • Speech against Muslims
  • Climate change deniers

While I am convinced that the government of a future world dictator as described by Daniel 8:23-26 will quickly eliminate freedom of speech, we need to hang on to it as long as we can.

CFR Globalist: End U.S. States, Build China-style Regional Gov't

The New American: “It is time for the United States of America to ditch the whole “states” thing, and for the federal government to re-organize the nation politically into massive regions with powerful regional governments fully subservient to national and even international authorities. The goal of the dystopian “economic master plan” is for America to become more like Communist China on the road toward a North American Union.

That might sound ridiculous — perhaps like the ravings of a mad man — to the average American. After all, the United States is, by its nature, a union of 50 states that have delegated a few limited and defined powers to their agent, the federal government, in pursuit of, among other objectives, securing “the Blessings of Liberty.”

If globalists get their way, though, that “antiquated” notion would be tossed onto the ash heap of history.

Opinion: The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)  is the premier U.S. “think tank” promoting world government. For the past century, the CFR has pushed stereotypes of the US as arrogant, self-indulgent, hypocritical, inattentive and unwilling or unable to engage in cross-cultural dialogue.

It is said around Washington that no one becomes president without the approval of the CFR. Four of seven Federal Reserve governors are members as well as Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Steven Breyer and former US President Bill Clinton.

So now the CFR desires a new map for America with open borders in order to get rid of what the globalists call “an antiquated political structure of 50 distinct states.”

But here is the most astounding part of the article:

“Instead of the 50 states, Khanna argues that America’s new map should be based on regions, each with its own regional government. “We don’t have to create these regions; they already exist, on two levels,” the CFR operative explained. “First, there are now seven distinct super-regions, defined by common economics and demographics, like the Pacific Coast and the Great Lakes. Within these, in addition to America’s main metro hubs, we find new urban archipelagos.” Federal policy should be used to bring it all about, he said.”

Daniel 7:23-24 says there will indeed be regions, only Daniel called them kings and there would be 10, not 7,  and the 10 kings will make up the revived Roman Empire.

One of the symbols for the CFR is a naked man on a white horse. The Latin VBIQVE means everywhere or omnipresent.

It is the 11th king, Antichrist, that will trample the earth for 7 years Daniel 7:23.

And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.” Rev. 6:1-2

Bill To Ban Muslim Brotherhood Advances In Congress

Investors Op-Ed: “Jihad: Washington’s strategy to defeat terrorism is lacking in many ways, but none more than its failure to attack it at its root: the Muslim Brotherhood. But that may change with the fast-tracking of a bill to outlaw the terror network. In a major development on this important front, the House Judiciary Committee
