“It is notable that the DHS, alongside other federal and state agents, conducted perhaps the biggest national security sweep in the Port of Wilmington’s history at the same time that Delaware officials were devising a plan to hand over one of America’s key critical infrastructure ports in the Northeast to Gulftainer.”

Background checks: Richards and GULFTAINER want “to find a way around that” and hire port workers with criminal backgrounds — with help from Delaware’s secretary of state. What could possibly go wrong?
Peter Richards is “working with Delaware’s Secretary of State Jeff Bullock, a Democrat, to hire people with criminal backgrounds” NPR affiliate Delaware Public Media reported.
“I’m working with Secretary Bullock there to try to find a way around that,” Richards said. “We always believe in giving people a second chance and if there’s a way that they can do it legally and through the legislation, then we’re all for it, we really are.”
CRUISE MISSILES COULD BE HIDDEN IN CARGO CONTAINERS
DELAWARE LIBERAL STUPIDITY LEAVES ENTIRE EAST COAST VULNERABLE TO ATTACK~JUDGE JEANINE PIRRO & REP. DUNCAN HUNTER DISCUSS DANGEROUS “GULFTAINER” PORT OF WILMINGTON DEAL TIES TO OBAMA & ISLAMIC SOCIETY
The Obama administration placed Aimen Nabi Mir, formertwo-time president of the youth wing of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), into the top advisory position to the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), a national security post at the Treasury Department.
Aimen Mir was the CFIUS Staff Chairperson from 2009 until 2014. During that time, Aimen Mir played a key role in the CFIUS panel’s decision to approve the sale of Uranium One to Russia’s Rosatom. Mir also played a key role in the Treasury Department’s refusal to investigate the UAE’s Gulftainer 35-year cargo container terminal lease at Port Canaveral, a critical military infrastructure facility for U.S. naval and space operations. Both decisions severely damaged United States national security.
EXCERPTS: The Delaware General Assemblyapproved a 50-year lease to cede control of the entire Port of Wilmington to United Arab Emirates-based Gulftainer. Gulftainer is a ports management company in business with Russian arms giant ROSTEC. The agreement was reached only days after DHS agentsraidedthe Delaware port and Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA)warnedPresident Trump about Gulftainer’s ties to Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi WMD programs. On April 6, 2018 President Trump slapped sanctions on ROSOBORONEXPORT, the wholly-owned subsidiary of ROSTEC that exports the Russian Trojan Horse Club-K Container Missile System. The Port of Wilmington is entering into a 50-year lease that turns over control of the strategically-located U.S. port to UAE-based Gulftainer. The Port of Wilmington is located 30 miles from Philadelphia, 110 miles from Washington D.C., 125 miles from New York City, and, as the crow flies, only 16 miles from the Salem Nuclear Power Plant. Gulftainer, co-owned by a UAE ruler and Iraqi oil billionaire Hamid Jafar, a Saddam Hussein loyalist, is in a joint venture with ROSTEC. A multi-agency task force of federal and state law enforcement personnel, led by Department of Homeland Security Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers raided Delaware’s Port of Wilmington on April 18, 2018. Federal agents seized fentanyl-laced heroin and marijuana making several arrests during the surprise operation. “In addition to CBP, the multi-agency team consisted of Homeland Security Investigations, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, U.S. Coast Guard, Transportation Security Administration, Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF), Delaware State Police, and Delaware National Guard Counterdrug Task Force”. In aletter to President Donald J. Trump, Representative Duncan D. Hunter (R-CA), Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation, wrote: “Several news reports indicate a family connection between the officers of the company [GULFTAINER] and Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar, a top Iraqi nuclear scientist during Saddam Hussein’s regime,” Rep. Hunter asked President Trump to place a hold on Gulftainer’s Port of Wilmington deal until the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) conducts a full national security review of Gulftainer. Hamid Jafar’s brother and business partner, Iraqi nuclear physicist Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar was the director of Saddam Hussein’s nuclear weapons and uranium enrichment programs. Gulftainer co-owner Hamid Jafar plotted with Iraq’s military-industrial complex and Lt. Gen. Dr. Amir al Saadi, the “Superweapons Czar” of Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi regime, to sell Iraqi oil through Crescent Petroleum to finance Iraq’s nuclear weapons program, according to congressional records.
EXCERPTS: On Friday, April 6, 2018, the Board of Directors of Delaware’s Diamond State Port Corporation voted unanimously to transfer control of the Port of Wilmington, Delaware, a major strategic U.S. port, to UAE-based GULFTAINER through a $580 million 50-year lease. In 2014, under the Obama administration, Florida’s Port Canaveral handed GULFTAINER the port’s cargo container operations in a secretly-negotiated deal code-named “Project Pelican.” On the same day Diamond State Port Corporations’ Board approved GULFTAINER’s Port of Wilmington lease, President Donald J. Trump imposed sanctions on Russian weapons exporter ROSOBORONEXPORT. Earlier that day, Peter Richards, CEO of GULFTAINER U.S. subsidiary GT USA, publicly assured Delawareans that GULFTAINER has no connections to Russia. Peter Richard’s denial on behalf of GULFTAINER flies in the face of a mountain of meticulously compiled evidence documenting GULFTAINER’s extensive business dealings with Russian state-owned enterprises.

EXCERPTS: A joint Delaware legislative committee on Thursday unanimously endorsed a 50-year lease ofWilmington’s port to Gulftainer Group, a Mideastern port operator that promised to invest $584 million to improve the existing port and to build a new deepwater terminal in Edgemoor. Six senators and six representatives on the Joint Committee on Capital Improvements, meeting in Dover, recommended the full General Assembly approve the lease, although several lawmakers said they had read only a summary of the contract terms, and not the 30-page term sheet approved this month by the Diamond State Port Corp. Jeffrey Bullock, Delaware’s secretary of state and chairman of state-owned port corporation, said he would provide more details to legislators confidentially, but he declined to disclose the term sheet or contract publicly because they contain “some commercially sensitive aspects.”
CLUELESS: PORT CANAVERAL SECURITY DIRECTOR ON GULFTAINER NUCLEAR SCIENTIST
DR. JAFAR DHIA JAFAR
Port Canaveral’s Senior Director of Public Safety and Security is Barry Compagnoni. Director Compagnoni appeared baffled when asked about Port Canaveral’s assessment of Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar, uttering just ten words — “Yeah, I’m sorry. I don’t understand what you’re talking about” — before slamming down the phone at his Canaveral Port Authority headquarters office in Cape Canaveral, Florida.
It was a quick and abrupt ending to a call placed to Director Compagnoni’s office on December 1st in an attempt to gauge Port Canaveral’s security posture toward Saddam Hussein’s rogue Iraqi nuclear weapons physicist Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar.
Dr. Jafar and his family’s ports company Gulftainer were placed ‘inside the wire’ at Port Canaveral with a 35-year lease approved and awarded by the Obama administration in a secretly-negotiated deal code-named ‘Project Pelican.’
The next time you watch a freight train pass by a railroad crossing, or hear the evocative sounds of the mournful horns of trains passing in the night or railroad crossing warning bells as flatbed rail cars double-stacked with cargo containers roll by, or see a flatbed semi-truck hauling a cargo container down the highway, keep in mind that President Barack Hussein Obama and his administration awarded Saddam Hussein’s rogue nuclear mastermind access to Florida’s Port Canaveral cargo container terminal, a U.S. port of entry that gives Russia and its Axis of Evil client states unfettered access to the entire United States.
This paper will explore how the confluence of several seemingly disparate factors have come together to create a perfect storm, threatening the United States and the West.
The tectonic shift of (i) the placement of Saddam Hussein’s nuclear scientist Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar and Gulftainer inside the wire at Port Canaveral with a 35-year container terminal lease through a secret operation known as ‘Project Pelican’ (ii) the dawn of Russia’s Club-K container missile launch system, (iii) The Jafars’ and Gulftainer’s joint venture with Russia’s state-owned Rostec, which owns 100% of the shares of Rosoboronexport, the exporter of the Club-K, (iv) Dr. Jafar’s miniaturized nuclear weapon, known as the ‘Arab bomb’ or ‘Beach Ball,’ (v) the Jafar family’s long-term relationship with Russia and the KGB/SVR and GRU intelligence services revolving around nuclear, chemical, and biological WMD, (vi) Dr. Jafar’s collaboration with North Korea on weapons delivery systems, and (vii) the similarities between Dr. Jafar’s ‘Beach Ball’ and the miniaturized nuclear weapon seen with Kim Jung-un, has become the perfect storm of danger, both on and off our shores.
In December 2016, we wrote “What Could Possibly Go Wrong.” Subsequently, we learned that several things have already gone wrong and could likely get worse. The advent of a new advanced weapon system designed and built by Russia, and the involvement of hostile foreign governments deeply tied to the Iraqi weapons of mass destruction (WMD) experts who leased Port Canaveral’s container terminal, have now made the already dire national security situation at Port Canaveral exponentially more dangerous. The situation has reached critical mass. All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.– Sun Tzu
‘Project Pelican’: Gulftainer’s Jafar Family, Which Includes Saddam’s Rogue Nuclear Scientist Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar, The Creator Of Miniaturized Nuclear Weapon ‘Beach Ball,’ Given 35-year Lease To Florida’s Port Canaveral Container Terminal
‘Project Pelican’ was the secret operation that handed over the cargo container terminal at Port Canaveral, Florida to Iraq’s oil-wealthy Jafar family, major power players in Saddam Hussein’s rogue nuclear WMD programs.
Particle physicist Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar, under the watchful eye of KGB General Yevgeney Primakov, masterminded Saddam Hussein’s top secret Petrochemical Complex Three (PC-3) nuclear weapons program. As Saddam’s Deputy Defense Minister and chief nuclear adviser, Dr. Jafar also oversaw procurement operations for Iraq’s vast nuclear, biological, and chemical WMD programs.
Dr. Jafar, his brother Hamid Jafar, and Hamid’s sons Majid and Badr are all key executives steering the family business, the Crescent Group conglomerate. The Crescent Group is the ultimate parent company of Gulftainer and Crescent Petroleum.
The Jafars were able to take control of the American cargo facility at Port Canaveral through an illegal 35-year lease granted to the Jafars’ UAE-based ports company Gulftainer (GTUSA).
Hamid Jafar was the key player in Saddam’s ‘Oil for Superweapons’ scheme, also known as ‘Put a Tyrant in your Tank.’ Under this scheme Crescent Petroleum, acting as a front company for Saddam, would sell millions of barrels of Iraqi crude oil to be used for Fina gasoline sold in the United States in order to fund Dr. Jafar’s rogue nuclear weapons program.
This ‘Oil for Superweapons’ scheme resulted in Crescent Petroleum becoming the target of investigations by the U.S. Treasury Department and four Congressional committees as a ‘front company for Saddam Hussein.’
“Crescent Petroleum is owned by senior Iraqi military figures” according to a citation in Dr. Christin Marschall Routledge’s (Ph.D. Harvard — History and Middle Eastern Studies) 2003 book “Iran’s Persian Gulf Policy From Khomeini to Khatami.”
The Project Pelican operation succeeded in placing Gulftainer and Dr. Jafar inside the wire at Port Canaveral without the required national security reviews because the Committee of Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) process was corrupted. CFIUS staff chairperson Aimen Mir at the Treasury Department bypassed the mandated 30 and 45-day national security reviews of the Gulftainer Port Canaveral transaction, allowing the Jafars to fly under the radar of the intelligence community.
In an October 18, 2017 tweet, author James Rickards, former advisor to the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) Support Group of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), revealed that “before Uranium One” Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper “disbanded” the CFIUS DNI advisory group.
Russia’s Club-K Container Missile Launch System: An Apocalyptic Threat
A paradigmatic example of the application of Sun Tzu’s principle of deception in warfare, is the Russian-designed WMD delivery system known as the Club-K (Klub-K). Russia’sClub-K container cruise missile launch system, the so-called ‘pandora’s box’ or ‘doomsday box,’ is an apocalyptic needle in a haystack, a modern-day WMD Trojan Horse delivery mechanism controlled via satellite.
U.S.defense experts have stated that the Russians have sold Club-K to Iran and also possibly to North Korea, Venezuela, Malaysia, China, and the UAE. Club-K container cruise missile launchers are designed to look identical to standard ISO intermodal commercial cargo containers, making them extremely difficult to detect and track.Club-K containers can be moved unnoticed throughout the United States aboard ships, riverine boats, rail cars, and flatbed semi-trailers.
Club-K Russian Kalibr-class cruise missiles can carry nuclear, EMP, chemical, biological, or conventional payloads and could deliver instant devastation far beyond anything Americans witnessed during the Pearl Harbor and 9/11 attacks.
The Club-K is a Trojan Horse that hides enemy missiles in order to attack the United States from inside the United States.
The Jafars’ Gulftainer And Club-K Are Linked Through A Joint-Venture With Russia

Image: 2010 SOCHI, RUSSIA Vladimir Putin watched over Badr Jafar, Chair of the Gulftainer Executive Board, as Gulftainer entered a joint venture with Rostec.
Gulftainer is in a joint-venture with Russian state-owned ROSTEC, which owns one hundred percent of the shares of ROSOBORONEXPORT, the exporter of the Club-K container missile launch system. ROSTEC markets the Club-K through its weapons export unit ROSOBORONEXPORT. ROSTEC entered into the joint venture with Gulftainer to operate Russian ports infrastructure projects, with Vladimir Putin personally overseeing the signing of the agreement. As a result, Gulftainer became a co-owner of a terminal at the Ust-Luga port” on the Baltic Sea near St. Petersburg, according to “Russia Beyond the Headlines.”
Club K containers have a shelf life of ten years. Each unit can lay dormant for a decade, until activated.
“There are terminals everywhere, where they can be stored however long it takes” boasted Rostislav Atkov, director for foreign economic activity at Morinformsistema-Agat Concern, the Russian manufacturer of the Club K container missile system. Atkov’s menacing remark about stealth Club-K launchers lying in wait in “terminals everywhere,” translated from Russian, suggests that Russia conceptualizes the Club-K as not just a defensive weapon but also as an offensive system for preemptive attacks. Atkov’s words were picked up by Global intelligence firm Stratfor and subsequently released by Wikileaks. Atkov’s comments from “I Serve Russia” a TV program on Russian Defense Ministry-controlled Zzezda TV.
Gulftainer is “the largest port operator in the Middle East with regards to the number of terminals operated in the region, with the company managing 40 percent of all the major container terminal facilities in the Middle East.”
Dr. Jafar And His Nuclear Weapons Advisor And Accomplice, Russian KGB Chief Yevgeny Primakov, The Architect Of The ‘Islamic Bloc’
Images: KGB General Yevgeny Primakov with Saddam Hussein (left), Saddam Hussein with Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar (right)
Baghdad-born Dr. Jafar began his high energy physics career studying nuclear fission in the Soviet Union after being rejected for a position at his U.K. alma mater the University of Birmingham. He spent decades under the tutelage of Saddam’s Soviet Adviser, KGB General Yevgeny Primakov (a.k.a. Nemchenko) (a.k.a. KGB code-name MAXIM). Dr. Jafar has been working with the KGB and its successor the SVR, for at least 36 years, dating back to at least 1982.
Dr. Jafar proposed to Saddam that Iraq deceptively remain a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) to avoid raising suspicion in the West while he was secretly moving Saddam’s nuclear weapons program into new clandestine facilities.
“‘If we walk out now, our enemies will say this is proof of our real intentions. I say we keep them guessing. Better we stay inside and learn how to deceive them’’ Dr. Jafar reportedly told Saddam.
Dr. Jafar turned to the KGB for technical assistance and advice in concealing his rogue nuclear weapons program inside structures that U.S. satellite imagery analysts would not recognize as WMD facilities.
Dr. Jafar used Vietnamese tunnel diggers (who had years of experience digging tunnels for the communist NVA during the Vietnam War) to dig Dr. Jafar’s new underground nuclear WMD facilities.
Kenneth R. Timmerman writes in his book “Shadow Warriors”:
“The debriefings indicated that the underground facilities had been dug by 2,500 Vietnamese laborers during the mid-1980s who toiled for $4 per month,” the former CIA officer said. “They dug at night to avoid infrared signatures. It was all done by drill blast, without heavy machinery.” To the trained eye, these were all telltale signs of Iraq’s intent to camouflage the work from satellite surveillance.
Dr. Jafar would go on to occupy the highest echelons of Saddam Hussein’s brutal regime, relying on his deep understanding of particle physics and his engineering prowess to advise President Hussein on how to unleash the power of science against their shared enemies, the United States and Israel.
Spymaster Primakov, also known as the ‘Bear in the Desert,” directed all of the KGB/SVR’s foreign intelligence operations for several years. Virtually single-handedly, Primakov ran Russia’s interests in the Arab World via the KGB’s Foreign Intelligence Service (FIS) and the KGB’s successor the SVR, which Primakov established and directed. Primakov was CIA mole Aldrich Ames’ handler.
Ferociously anti-Semitic and fluent in Arabic, Primakov clandestinely created Russia’s Islamic Bloc of rogue terror-sponsoring Middle Eastern regimes: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Sudan.
With cold calculation, Primakov targeted the poorly-educated Islamic populations of these countries with anti-Semitic propaganda brainwashing. Throughout the Islamic Bloc, Primakov weaponized Islamic extremism against the ‘imperialist’ United States and the ‘Zionist’ Israel, all to Russia’s benefit.
Primakov’s use of the Islamic Bloc and Russia’s so-called ‘War on Terror’ were both contrivances of Soviet/Russian intelligence services and crucial sub-strategies of the KGB/SVR’s long-range ‘Perestroika Deception.’
According to KGB defector Major Anatoliy Golitsyn and Christopher Story (former adviser to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher), the Perestroika Deception is a KGB/SVR operation designed and conducted to deceive the United States, the U.K., and NATO into thinking that “the West ‘won the Cold War’, that the enemy ‘disappeared’, that ‘Communism is dead’, that the Soviet Union ‘collapsed’ and that Russia has embarked upon ‘progress towards democracy.’”</p
The Perestroika Deception and the Islamic Bloc were meant to weaken the U.S. military through endless wars on terror, and to set the stage for Vladimir Putin’s takeover of the Middle East, while U.S. strategic nuclear forces became antiquated.
With the U.S. military mired in Primaokov’s deadly project known as the ‘War on Terror,’ America took its eyes off the mushrooming threat from its old Cold War adversary Russia.
Putin, seeing an opening, rapidly innovated and accelerated Russia’s strategic weapons programs, expanded Russia’s cruise missile arsenal and submarine fleets, and developed new asymmetrical systems like the Club-K. Russia is proliferating these new weapons and tactics across the Axis of Evil as America becomes surrounded by menace.
Former Pentagon nuclear strategist Mark Schneider, commenting on the growing cruise missile threat from Russia, told the “The Washington Free Beacon” that “the Russians are preparing to fight us while we are preparing to fight terrorists.”
Dr. Jafar’s Miniaturized Nuclear Weapon: The Iraqi ‘Beach Ball’

Dr. Jafar, a “Dr. Strangelove who mixes Muslim fatalism, Arab nationalism, and modern technocracy,” executed his most terrifying crowning achievement (perhaps prior to ‘Project Pelican’) with the successful design and production of his super-secret miniaturized nuclear weapon known as the ‘Beach Ball,’ was a worrisome and alarming technical accomplishment.
‘Beach Ball’ was the manifestation of Saddam’s and Dr. Jafar’s dream of creating the first ‘Arab bomb’ and Dr. Jafar’s ‘Beach Ball” created a sea change in the Middle East nuclear weapons environment.
According to Al J. Venter’s book “Allah’s Bomb: The Islamic Quest for Nuclear Weapons,” many years after Israeli war planes had bombed Dr. Jafar’s Osirak nuclear reactor during 1981’s Operation Opera Dr. Jafar reportedly bragged about deceiving the West:
Let the Israelis believe they destroyed our nuclear capability. Accept the sympathy offered for this aggression then proceed in secret with an atom bomb program — which is what we did.
America At Risk Of Nuclear Or EMP Attacks: Dr. Jafar’s ‘Beach Ball’ And Russia’s Club-K Mobile ‘Container’ WMD Delivery System — A Marriage Made In Hell
Images: ‘Beach Ball’ miniaturized nuclear weapon, Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar, computer animation depicting Club-K container cruise missile launch from aboard a rail car.
With the arrival of the Club-K, the true scale of the threat from Dr. Jafar’s ‘Beach Ball’ must be recalculated.
The Club-K container system’s stealth WMD delivery capability has exponentially expanded the danger zone from Dr. Jafar’s ‘Beach Ball” — it does not cover just Israel and the Middle East anymore but has now expanded to every city in America.
Defense analysts call the arrival of Club-K an asymmetrical “game changer” that has shifted the U.S.-Russia strategic balance of power to Russia’s advantage.
Russia is even equipping its new state-of-the-art arctic icebreakers with Club-K missile systems.
Officials at NORTHCOM/NORAD concede that the United States has no off-the-shelf technical solutions for (i) tracking Club-K units that determined adversaries may have already smuggled into the U.S. or (ii) defending America from surprise Club-K cruise missile attacks, which could include nuclear and EMP attacks.
The coupling of ‘Beach Ball,’ Dr. Jafar, and Gulftainer with the genesis of Russia’s Club-K container missile launch system, and the placement of Dr. Jafar ‘inside the wire’ at Port Canaveral, adds up to a catastrophe in the making.
In 2011, around the same time that Gulftainer was setting up their Ust-Luga port operations, a prototype of the Club-K debuted at the nearby 2011 International Maritime Defence Show in St. Petersburg.
Gulftainer’s Ust-Luga is one of twelve Russian ports where ships carrying nuclear material or products are allowed to dock.
Dr. Jafar Seeks ‘Beach Ball’ Delivery System; North Koreans And Iraqis Met In Damascus For Missile Factory Deal
Because Primakov led the Islamic Bloc — Iraq, Iran, Syria, Sudan, Lebanon — it must be understood that Dr. Jafar was not merely Saddam’s rogue nuclear scientist, but was also one of the leading nuclear scientists in Russia’s wider Red-Green alliance, spanning from North Korea to Iran.
Accordingly, it comes as no surprise (i) that Dr. Jafar has worked with the North Koreans since the 1990s seeking a delivery system for ‘Beach Ball,’ (ii) that the Jafars and Crescent are deeply connected to Iran’s brutal regime, (iii) that the Jafars’ Director of Strategic Planning was deeply involved in President Obama’s Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA P5+1) (the ‘Iran Nuclear Deal’) — working for the Iranian side — (iv) that the Jafars’ employee Siamak Namazi, a former Iranian army officer and Iranian regime government official, became Crescent Petroleum’s Director of Strategic Planning.
Dr. Jafar’s ‘Beach Ball’ Closely Resembles Kim Jung-Un’s North Korean Miniaturized Nuclear Weapon

A U.N. official “holding his arms out in a circle like a man holding a beach ball” described Dr. Jafar’s ‘Beach Ball’ as “about a yard across, weighing about a ton” according to a 1991 first-hand account of a meeting at U.N. headquarters published in “The New York Times Magazine.”
The latest blueprint, according to United Nations inspectors, is of a sphere measuring 32 to 35 inches in diameter with 32 detonators. The bomb would weigh less than a ton and fit on a Scud missile, the weapon Mr. Hussein used in the war to hit Israel and kill American troops.

The ‘Beach Ball’ represents a horrific development. It is, however, made significantly more frightening by its coupling with the stealthy cargo container delivery system.
The Club-K can be launched remotely and provided with target acquisition data from “any coastal, shipborne, aviation, or satellite system,” such as North Korea’s mysterious KMS 3-4 and KMS-4 satellites, currently orbiting over the United States, in a high-tech enemy act of military deception.
Dr. Lajos F. Szaszdi, an expert on the Russian military, reports at the “Daily Signal”:
The Club-K missiles have satellite navigation, which currently would utilize the U.S. GPS and the Russian GLONASS (GPS) systems, and possibly also China’s Beidou 2 system and Europe’s Galileo in the future. According to the Club-K promotional video, targeting coordinates would be provided from space by a satellite, but these could also be supplied by airborne platforms.
Experts such as Dr. Peter Vincent Pry fear that North Korea could use a miniaturized nuclear weapon or a variant — the so-called ‘Super EMP,’ in order to knock out much of the U.S. power grid, plunging America into darkness with disastrous repercussions for the American public.
Wiping out America’s power grid with an EMP is something that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has recently hinted he is prepared to do.
“Let’s reduce the US mainland into ashes and darkness” North Korea’s official KCNA news agency threatened in a September 2017 statement.
Iran Practicing Launching EMP Attacks From Cargo Freighter Ships
Major General Paul E. Vallely, Chairman of Stand Up America, according to “Townhall,” wrote:
SUA believes strongly that Iran now possesses low yield nuclear warheads that can be mounted on the Shehab missile and deployed on the oceans in container ships with the Russian provided Club K missile launch system…to launch EMP (electromagnetic pulse) weapons on U.S. Coastal cities and freeze our national grid systems.>
Not only has Iran reportedly purchased the Club-K, it has been practicing launching EMP attacks from cargo freighters and has deep ties to the Jafar’s cargo container operations.
(Dr. Peter Vincent) Pry, president of EMPACT America, one of the nation’s leading authorities on EMP, revealed that Iran recently purchased Russia’s Club-K missile launcher, which can be hidden in tractor-trailer-sized cargo boxes.
“I and my colleagues, including Reza Kahlili, who warned six months ago that these Iranian patrols were coming, think it more likely Iran would make an EMP attack by launching a missile off a freighter, so they could do the deed anonymously, and escape retaliation,” Pry explained…”The Club-K, if armed with a nuclear warhead, could be used to execute an EMP attack.”
Jafar’s Gulftainer Is Majority Owner In GSCCO Consortium With Partner KGL — KGL Was Under FBI And DoD Investigation, Implicated In Laundering Money For Iran
KGL Executives Secretly Operated Container Ships With Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Lines (IRISL) Through RAK Shipping
KGL/RAK Executive Set Up Secret Shore-to-Ship Communication To IRISL-Controlled Ships Via ‘Ghost Email’ System
KGL Board Members Were Detained At Dulles and SFO Airports, One Was Charged With Undermining US National Security, Selling Aircraft Parts To Iran
When Gulftainer took control of container terminals at three major Saudi Arabian ports by grabbing the helm and the majority equity stake of the renamed Gulf Stevedoring and Contracting Company (GSCCO) the Jafars also became consortium business partners with GSCCO’s co-founders KGL, a Kuwaiti ports company. KGL executives and board members, it had recently been revealed in an American court, were deeply involved in a secret container ship operation with The Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Lines (IRISL) and were under FBI and DoD investigation for money laundering and sanctions violations.
Image: Defense Secretary Ashton ‘Ash’ Carter (Source: DoD)
IRISL was under U.S., EU, and UN sanctions at the time due to IRISL’s history of shipping materials for Iran’s rogue nuclear weapons program. The KGL officials worked closely with a top IRISL executive who was placed under sanctions as a Specially Designated National (SDN) by the U.S. Treasury Department and was separately indicted for conspiracy by U.S. District Attorney Cyrus Vance in Manhattan.
The attention might have been a problem for Gulftainer as it secretly courted first Port Jacksonville (located near Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay and Naval Station Mayport), and then Port Canaveral.
Senators Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) and Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) demanded answers from Undersecretary of Defense Ashton B. “Ash” Carter as to why KGL has been awarded over $1 billion in Department of Defense contracts.
Under Secretary Carter skirted the truth in a reply letter Senator Kirk by stating that there was “no indication that KGL Holding has violated U.S. law.”
Dr. Jafar’s Company Employs Former Iranian Regime Official (As Its Director Of Strategic Planning) Who Is Also Tied To 33 White House Visits And To Obama’s Iran Nuclear Deal
Image: Trita Parsi (left) and Siamak Namazi (right)
The Jafars’ business interests are not only intertwined with Russia and Russian intelligence services, but also with the terror-sponsoring Iranian regime. The Iranian government has served as a talent pool for key executive posts within the Jafars’ shadowy business empire.
The Jafars turned to a former Iranian army officer and regime official with deep ties to Obama’s ‘Iran Nuclear Deal’ to operate as its Director of Strategic Planning for the Jafars’ Crescent Petroleum.
Image: Ambassador William Green Miller
Siamak Namazi and his Iranian father Baquer Namazi were feeding talking points to Swedish-Iranian operative Trita Parsi. Siamak Namazi’s other contacts include Iran’s UN ambassador and former US Ambassador to the Urkraine William Greene Miller, then-Senator Obama’s backchannel to the Iranian regime.
Ambassador Miller’s mentor Fred Dupee joined the CPUSA and handed out communist literature to the longshoremen’s union in New York City, where Miller grew up. Dupee was a member of CPUSA’s League of American Writers.
MILLER: I also was reading and studying American literature with Fred Dupee. I don’t know if you know that name.
Q: I’ve heard the name.
MILLER: Yes, he was a visiting professor from Columbia. Fred Dupee, became a close friend and was a very important influence.
Ambassador Miller promised the Iranians a better deal than what the Bush administration was offering. This backchannel diplomacy took place in advance of the 2008 presidential election.
Court documents proved through the exposure of Siamek Namazi’s emails that Namazi was giving talking points to Trita Parsi.
In an article titled “Namazi: NIAC Ringleader,” Iran Lobby, a group of pro-America Iranian-Americans whose stated objective is “Exposing the activities of the lobbies and appeasers of the Mullah’s dictatorship ruling Iran,” published and analyzed an email in which Ambassador Miller’s name is mentioned:
(In one of the subpoenaed emails sent by Parsi) Parsi discussed the contents of the minutes from their conference call.
There has been silence since the draft minutes of last week’s telephone conference was sent to the group for your review and approval. I assume everyone has been busy, but it would be good if we could finish the minutes by Tuesday so that we can follow Mr. Ba[qu]er Namazi’s instructions and sen[d] it to Amb. Bill Miller. [emphasis added]
“Iran Lobby” provided an analysis of the email.
The email reveals that Baquer Namazi is the ringleader of the group, giving instructions to Parsi and the others. Parsi is thus working with Namazi, who has close ties to the Iranian regime, and whose family members work for one of the top consulting companies in Tehran with multiple links to government officials and ministries.
The email indicates Parsi also was working with William G. Miller, then an advisor for the Search for Common Ground and a member of the board of the American Iranian Council. He earlier had been a political officer at the US Consulate in Isfahan (1959-62) and Embassy in Tehran (1962-64)
Namazi sent emails to Trita Parsi, his co-founder of NIAC as Parsi visited the Obama White House on 33 occasions in the run-up to the Iran Nuclear Deal.
Sources familiar with the nature of the meetings told the Washington Free Beacon that both Parsi and Mousavian helped the White House craft its pro-Iran messaging and talking points that helped lead to the nuclear agreement with Iran. These efforts were part of a larger pro-Iran deal “echo chamber” led by senior Obama administration officials who were tasked with misleading Congress about the nature of the deal.
Trita Parsi and Siamak Namazi co-founded the National Iranian American Council (NIAC). Namazi and Parsi were crafting the Iran Nuclear Deal and heavily lobbying Washington for its implementation. Parsi was photographed meeting with senior Iranian regime officials in Switzerland during negotiations for the Iran Deal.
The Jafars’ Director of Strategic Planning Namazi attended the 2012 World Ports and Trade Summit in the UAE with Gulftainer officials during the secret Project Pelican deal negotiations.
Putin Credits Yevgeny Primakov As First To Propose Iran Nuclear Deal — That Obama Implemented
In 2016 Vladimir Putin credited his KGB mentor Yevgeny Primakov for being one of the first to propose what would become the ‘Iran Nuclear Deal.’
Let us recall that Mr. Primakov was one of the first to propose a solution to the Iranian nuclear issue. And all who were involved in resolving this problem know the role the different countries, diplomatic services and intelligence services played in this complex process. We know this role. We are not exaggerating anything here, but the fact remains that Mr. Primakov was one of the first to propose a peaceful solution to the problem.

Pearl Harbor 2: Russia’s Strategy – Massive Axis Of Evil Cruise Missile Attacks Against U.S. Using Club-K ‘Containers’ And Submarines
Image: Club-K container cruise missiles launched from ships, trains, and trucks targeting a military base on land and an aircraft carrier group. Source: ROSOBORONEXPORT, the weapons export unit of Russia’s state-owned ROSTEC. The Jafar’s Gulftainer entered a joint venture with ROSTEC.
The military deception tactics designed into Russia’s ‘Trojan Horse’ Club-K exemplify the Sun Tzu dictates found in “The Art of War.”
A study of evolving Russian military doctrine reveals that Club-K container cruise missile launchers, smuggled through U.S. ports and armed with Kalibr-class (NATO code-name Sizzler) cruise missiles, could be used in a Pearl Harbor-style attack on U.S. naval forces sitting in port. The Club-K gives “any merchant vessel the capability to wipe out an aircraft carrier.”
These Club-K container cruise missile attacks could be augmented by force-multiplying submarine fleets from (i) Iran (a member of the Islamic Bloc), (ii) from North Korea, Vietnam, and China (members of the Trans-Asian Axis) (iii) and from Russia. These submarines (such as the Russian Akula II class) along with surface warships and merchant ships also carrying Kalibr cruise missiles could result in a massive coordinated surprise cruise missile attack from both off U.S. shores and from within the U.S. interior, including highways, rail lines, and rivers.
A single Club-K with four missiles carrying nuclear or conventional weapons could devastate several U.S. cities. Russia designed its Club-K system container units to be used in large numbers as components of a massive preemptive ‘distributed lethality’ attack against the United States. A coordinated Club-K attack by Russia and its affiliates could immediately limit America’s counter-strike options and capabilities.
The ‘Kalibration’ of the naval forces of Russia and other Axis-of-Evil states including Iran and North Korea is the ‘distributed lethality’ tactic of widely deploying Russian Kalibr cruise missiles aboard axis submarines and hidden in ‘Club-K’ ‘cargo containers’ which can launch Kalibr cruise missiles from ships, riverine boats, rail cars, and semi-trucks inside the United States.
Chief of Staff of the United States Army General Mark A. Milley issued a warning during an October 2016 speech:
While we focused on CT (counterterrorism) and COIN (counterinsurgencecy) fight, other countries, Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea, went to school on us. They closely watched how we fought (in Iraq) in ‘91 and ‘03. They studied our doctrine, our tactics, our equipment, our organization, our training, and our leadership. And in turn, they revised their own doctrines and they are rapidly modernizing their militaries today to avoid our strengths in hopes of defeating us at some point in the future.
Recently a senior Russian official, Ambassador to the United Kingdom Alexander Yakovenko, he said quote… “Russia can now fight a conventional war in Europe and win. Russia is the only country that will remain relevant forever. Any other country is dispensable, and that includes the United States. We are in endgame now” end quote.
Bluster? Hubris? Bravado? Or does he mean what he says. Does he believe it? And more importantly, do the leaders in the Kremlin believe it? Well, history tells us to be careful. It’s always wise to believe foreign leaders’ declaratory policy as most nations tend to telegraph their strategic intentions.
The Russian Defense Journal “Natsionalnaya Oborona” (translation: National Defense) published a paper in 2015 written by Aleksandr Mozgovoy called “RUSSIAN NAVY’S LONG ARM: KALIBR MISSILE FAMILY.” Mozgovoy writes (translated from Russian):
Thanks to the (Kalibr) cruise missiles, nuclear and conventional submarines will no longer have to change ship targets all over the ocean, but strike them in their ports, attacking from long ranges. They can now attack a wide range of land targets and from directions poorly protected by air defenses. This also applies to attacks on surface ships. In the near future, Russian submarines, missile boats, and surface ships will be able to hold at risk all important sites in Europe and in the Middle East. While the nuclear subs will have the US as their potential target…We believe that the idea of placing Kalibrs in standard 40-foot containers (the Kalibr-K system) installed on civilian ships, including riverine ones. Such concealed floating arsenals can operate on seas and rivers unnoticed. Club-S export version is also enjoying success. It has been installed on more than twenty diesel-electric submarines delivered to Algeria, Vietnam, India, and China. Iranian sailors are casting covetous gazes at them.
The West clearly understands the power of the Kalibr system. Not for nothing did they name it the “Sizzler.”
Emergency Exit: Primakov And Russian Special Forces Evacuate Dr. Jafar’s ‘Beach Ball’ And Jafar’s Other WMD Programs Out Of Iraq
Image: Russian special forces generals and KGB/SVR general Yevgeny Primakov oversaw Operation Emergency Exit, a secret evacuation of Iraqi WMDs in early 2003.
Primakov helped oversee Russia’s GRU Operation ‘Emergency Exit’ (Russian code-name: Sarandar) that hid Dr. Jafar’s and Saddam’s WMDs by moving them to Syria, Lebanon, and Iran via truck convoys and air cargo operations in early 2003 as the US and coalition military forces prepared to invade Iraq at the onset of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Primakov, with the help of Russian Spetsnaz special operations elite units dressed in civilian clothing to avoid detection by American spy satellites, worked side-by-side with Saddam’s elite Iraqi Special Security Organization (SSO) special operations personnel, to move and hide all traces of ‘Beach Ball’ and other WMD.
A compilation of reports indicated that converted Iraqi Airways Boeing aircraft were used in 56 sorties into Syria (disguised as relief missions for flood victims), truck convoys, refrigerated cargo containers, and Primakov’s own aircraft, to move Iraq’s WMDs into Syria, Lebanon, and Iran.
Former Deputy Undersecretary of Defense John A. Shaw, speaking in 2006 at a private ‘Intelligence Summit’ in Virginia said that Saddam’s WMDs “were moved by Russian Spetsnaz (special forces) units out of uniform, that were specifically sent to Iraq to move the weaponry and eradicate any evidence of its existence.”
There Were WMDs In Iraq: The Left Hid It For Political Advantage
Image: IRAQ 2003: Iraqi WMD site contaminated by radiation. Credit: Dave Gaubatz
Political operatives inside U.S. intelligence, led by CIA Chief of the European division for clandestine operations in the Directorate of Operations Tyler Drumheller, sought to gain political advantage in the 2004 presidential election, by insisting that there were no WMDs in Iraq. In fact there were — a deception which benefited Dr. Jafar, Primakov, Putin, and Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad greatly. Drumheller’s wife was working for John Kerry’s presidential campaign. Drumheller threw his country under the bus for political advantage in the upcoming election.
Not everyone bought into Drumheller’s story. Just ask Dave Gaubatz, a civilian US federal agent with the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations (OSI), who previously spent 20 years on active duty. Agent Gaubatz was exposed to WMD in Iraq and he has the medical records to prove it.

Agent Gaubatz, highly trained in counterintelligence, counterterrorism, and Arabic linguistics, deployed to Nasiriyah, Iraq in 2003, tasked with looking for WMD. His team, with help from a few local Iraqis who wanted to help America, all risked their lives but succeeded in locating several WMD sites. Mysteriously, the OSI WMD reports that Gaubatz and his team filed were ‘lost’ by OSI and the Department of Defense. By 2006, the WMD sites Gaubatz’s team located had still not been inspected.
Image: Agent Dave Gaubatz with the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations (left) and his team of active duty Air Force personnel, tasked with looking for WMD sites, Nasiriyah, Iraq, 2003 – Operation Iraqi Freedom
Agent Gaubatz returned from Iraq suffering from acute radiation sickness and chemical weapons exposure after his deployment to an Iraqi Air Force base.
Agent Gaubatz wrote in one of his medical reports:
Certain areas of the base had tested above normal for radioactive materials. All personnel in my unit became sick at various time during the deployment at the Iraqi base.
Agent Gaubatz complained of “weakness, muscle aches, headaches, dizziness, difficulty breathing, tired after sleeping, diarrhea, indigestion, vomiting.”
According to the CDC, symptoms of “Acute Radiation Syndrome (ARS), or radiation sickness, may include nausea, vomiting, headache, and diarrhea.”
Another former U.S. military member who does not buy Drumheller’s story is former CENTCOM Arabic translator Bill Tierney, who actually listened to audio tapes of Saddam and Dr. Jafar (the so-called ‘Saddam Tapes’) discussing their WMDs and the ways to use them. However, and inexplicably, Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte shut down the ‘Saddam Tapes’ program prior to the completion of the review of all of the tapes. Failure to analyze all of the Saddam Tapes leaves vast amounts of intelligence, including additional data on Dr. Jafar and his WMD programs, inaccessible to decision makers.
According to “The Weekly Standard,“ former CIA director George Tenet — who headed the agency under both Clinton and Bush — takes pages in his book “At the Center of the Storm: My Years at the CIA” to call out Drumheller for not telling the truth and dismantle[s] his version of events brick by brick.”
In the political and media environment of ‘Bush Lied, People Died,’ the most dangerous components of Dr. Jafar’s, Saddam’s, and Primakov’s nuclear weapons programs, including ‘Beach Ball,’ vanished in the darkness of night, under remote mountains and rivers, and across the deserts and out-of-the-way settlements of the Middle East.
However, Saddam always had contingency plans to reactivate his nuclear WMD programs in the future, even in the event of the fall of his regime. With the components and CDs of blueprints of “Beach Ball” safely hidden by Dr. Jafar and Primakov’s Russian special operations troops, the potential scourge of ‘Beach Ball’ was never fully taken off the table.
THE PERFECT STORM: TIMELINE
Like Russia’s Club-K container cruise missile launch system,’Project Pelican’ and the ‘Iran Nuclear Deal’ are also examples of the effective application of the principles found in Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War.” Notably, the three parallel operations were concurrently executed.
For many months, the full scope of Iran’s and Russia’s strategic takeover of Iraq, Syria and with a presence not before seen in the the Middle East, made possible by President Obama, his cabinet, certain members of Congress, wealthy foreign-born financiers and businessmen, spies and double-agents operating throughout DC and the intelligence community have become frighteningly and soberingly apparent.
Still unanswered questions about Barack Hussein Obama’s personal background and his 1980s travels to Pakistan are coming back to haunt U.S. national security as names of his former foreign student college roommates (Hamid Wahid and Vinai Thummalapally), several of whom traveled with Obama on a mysterious trip to Pakistan, reappeared in the investigation of the handover of a U.S. port to a company linked to Saddam Hussein’s WMDs, Russia, Iran and Pakistan.
Seemingly disparate chapters in this grand rearrangement of the pieces on the chessboard are, upon closer inspection, parallel operations moving the United States closer and closer to a complete and final intelligence, military, economic, and civilizational defeat, burying the American experiment in democracy and permanently extinguishing any light from the shining city on the hill. The parallel operations are now coming together and on the verge of reaching critical mass.
The withdrawal from Iraq, the murder of American heroes at Benghazi, Extortion 17, the Pakistani Awan Brothers Congressional IT spying scandal, and now the Gulftainer Port Canaveral deal are only the visible signs of the iceberg tearing into America’s bow.
Below deck, America’s intelligence secrets have been spilling into the sea. Secret military hardware, communication systems and GPS technology have been handed over to enemies.
One of our most strategic seaports has been given away to the UAE and by proxy to Iraq, Iran, Russia and more. Secret and illegal computer servers and fraudulent email accounts were set up as cyber-Wal-Marts for hostile governments to collect virtually unlimited data and secrets including Special Access Programs (SAP — above top secret) a classification which includes live Intel and silo locations. Interestingly not one single live intelligence operative remained standing in China after 2011.
America is flying blind.
America’s enemies have been elevated, their powers expanded, while America’s reputation was sullied.
For a major WMD commander like Dr. Jafar to emerge from Saddam’s Iraqi regime — the regime that created that threat environment that pulled the U.S. into the Iraq War — and to then gain access to U.S. national security hub Port Canaveral makes it impossible to evade the question any longer: On whose side was Barack Hussein Obama? What else has he done that we do not know about?
The perfect storm did not just happen, it was conceived and created.
EXCERPTS:J.D. Greear cannot be trusted to remain independent of Russell Moore’s George-Soros-style immigration policy. Greear has repeatedly thrown his public support behind Russell Moore, the embattled president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention. Immigration is one area where Greear has joined with Russell Moore in pushing for immigration. Greear tweeted out his thoughts on immigration policy and Donald Trump during the last election. Greear said, “Is Donald Trump wrong about Muslim immigration? (Hint: yes),” along with a link to his blog. Greear’s ministry blog published by his staff during the election attacked Trump’s immigration policy and promoted Russell Moore’s opposition.
The blog said, “Recently he suggested that we close our border to all Muslims. This is an obviously foolish agenda, and one that flies in the face of Christian principles. For the sake of religious liberty, for the sake of integrity, and for the sake of basic humanity, Russ Moore says we’ve got to reject this for the folly that it is.” (Link) Folly is using cooperative program money to fund legal briefs to help build mosques. Folly is helping Russell Moore on his open-borders agenda. Folly is not calling Russell Moore out for his connections to George Soros funded open borders immigration groups. Folly would be electing Greear at a time we need leadership to stand up to Russell Moore and stop the progressive attack on pro-life values.
NEW SOUTHERN BAPTIST PRESIDENT SHOWS THE DANGER OF EVANGELICALISM TODAY
In the book What Is the Emerging Church? (2008) we warned that the emerging church is weak on the issue of homosexuality. Brian McLaren, for example, says, “Frankly, many of us don’t know what we should think about homosexuality” (“Brian McLaren on the Homosexual Question,” Jan. 23, 2006, blog.christianitytoday.com). Chris Seay says, “Approach homosexuals without condemnation but with God’s love and the gospel” (ChurchRelevance.com, June 19, 2007). This confused thinking is now front and center in the Southern Baptist Convention by the election on June 12 of J.D. Greear as President. In 2014, in a message before the ERLC [Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission] National Conference on “The Gospel, Homosexuality, and the Future of Marriage,” Greear said, “We have to love our gay neighbor more than we love our position on sexual morality … I am not saying that we would ever compromise our position or fail to state it, just that even when they disagree with it, we do not cut them off, we draw them close. We say yes, this issue is important. I cannot compromise, but I love you more than I love being right. In the cross of Jesus Christ, he shows us the right way to relate to the gay and the lesbian community—clarity about God’s righteousness, compassion that would give up its own life to draw them close.” Greear’s position is incredibly misguided and unbiblical, though it is presented in a semblance of truth. It is certain that Jesus Christ loved sinners and died for sinners with a desire that sinners draw close to Him; but Jesus calls sinners to repentance and there is no “drawing close” to God without repentance. Twice in the same sermon Christ said, “except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3).Christ directly and plainly exposed the sin of the woman at the well, and she repented and drew close to God in salvation (John 4). On the other hand, Jesus exposed the sin of the rich young ruler, and he did not repent and as a result did not draw close to God (Mark 10:17-23). Greear says, “We have to love our gay neighbor more than we love our position on sexual morality,” and, “I love you more than I love being right.” But the Bible says we should love God’s Word and hate every false way (Psalm 119:128). The Bible says we should have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them” (Ephesians 5:11). Jesus was a friend of sinners, but He preached repentance to sinners and warned them of eternal hellfire (e.g., Mark 9:43, 45, 47; Luke 12:5). Christ never modified or softened or shortened His message in any way whatsoever in order to “draw them close.” The fundamental problem in the Southern Baptist Convention is that it is composed of churches that do not have a zeal to obey God’s Word and are thus spiritually powerless. Having grown up in Southern Baptist Churches and having wide experience of them over the past 68 years, I can say that the average SBC congregation is a mixed multitude of saved and lost and is spiritually lukewarm at the very best. The pastor is a hireling, not a prophet, and his greatest fear is offending some lukewarm member of his congregation. Serious intercessory prayer and fasting are nearly unknown. Separation from the world is considered legalism. Life-changing conversions are as rare as hen’s teeth. Consider the statistics for 2013: A full 60% of SBC churches baptized zero youth between ages of 12-17 and 80% baptized zero or just one young adult ages 18-29. But there was an explosion in the baptisms of “five and under” (Annual Church Profile, 2013). That is Baptist infant baptism, and it is the sign of a dead denomination! And most Independent Baptists today are no different in spiritual character than Southern Baptists. I am so thankful that I personally know of many churches that are different in spiritual character than what I have described and that do know and experience the resurrection power of God in regenerating power and life-changing holiness and biblical separation.
HOW LGBT THEOLOGY IS INVADING THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION
(Friday Church News Notes, July 27, 2018, www.wayoflife.org, [email protected], 866-295-4143) – republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
The following is excerpted from “Trusted SBC and PCA Seminaries Producing Sexual Minority Activists,” by Thomas Littleton, thirtypiecesofsilver.org, May 12, 2018: “As early as 2010 the ‘conversation’ and the language on sexuality of the remaining biblically conservative churches began to show signs of impending derailment. The introduction of new phrases like ‘Same Sex Attracted (SSA)’ and ‘Gay Celibate Christian’ in reality betrayed a larger undercurrent intent on migrating the Christian churches toward affirmation of gay marriage and creation of a homosexual Christianity. … We must now … face some hard facts, namely, that major institutions in the Southern Baptist Convention and Presbyterian Church of America are actually training LGBTQ activists and advocates for inclusion of sexual minorities in the churches—in ministry positions and even as ‘theologians’ of LGBTQ and Queer Theory. … In 2013, certain Southern Baptist and PCA organizations began to promote the acceptance of ‘Same-Sex Attracted’ but ‘Celibate Christians.’ This category is based on the assertion that same sex desire is not sinful in itself, but that only acting upon the desire is sin. This mindset reveals a glaring ignorance of the nature of sin and defilement as explained by Jesus, in Matthew 15:1-20, when asked why his disciples did not observe ritual washing before eating. Jesus clarified that it is ‘what is in and comes out of the heart of man that defiles us.’ Paul called homosexual lusts ‘vile affections’ in Romans 1:26. James further warns us that ‘when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death’ (Jas. 1:15). So, desire is the seed in the heart that if harbored gives birth to sin. We are told, however, in this ‘new conversation’ that SSA or homosexual desire is not temptation to lust as other heterosexual desires are but that the issue is one of ‘Orientation,’ which implies that God made a gay person to be gay and for the church to expect them to be changed by the Gospel is to reject God’s creation. Albert Mohler, whose Southern Seminary plays a major role in the ‘new conversation’ of all things LGBT+ [the plus sign is inclusive of other groups, such as “asexual, intersex, queer”], has openly apologized to homosexuals, asserting that Baptists have had it wrong on orientation and that neither ‘Conversion Therapy’ nor saving faith in Jesus changes a homosexual into a heterosexual. Imagine, this is coming from one of the leading voices in Biblical Conservative Evangelical circles today. … Nate Collins is a graduate of Albert Mohler’s Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, with a Master of Divinity degree and completing his Ph.D. in 2017. His father is Chip Collins former assistant Dean at Boyce College which is now operated by Southern Seminary under Al Mohler’s directive. Nate and his dad Chip had an organization featuring their testimonies as father and son during Nate’s coming ‘out’ as a homosexual at 19. .. Nate self-identifies as a homosexual Christian and is in a ‘mixed-orientation marriage’ with two children. … This young man and young ‘minister’—who was theologically prepared by Dr. Mohler’s Southern Seminary—sees life, the church, the faith, his calling, and the Word of God all through the lens of his own sexuality, which he identifies as homosexuality. This is the single biggest flaw in the approach to having those with unresolved sexual conflicts to be the spokespersons and counselors to and for the church in the political and activist driven culture existing today. The Church needs clarity on God’s design and personal testimonies of deliverance from the bondage of perversion. We need to see human proof like the demoniac of Gadara who was clothed and in his right mind after encountering Jesus, and then sent forth to evangelize the cities of the Decapolis. There are many wonderful testimonies of both lay Christians and ministers who have been transformed and converted by the power of the Gospel and Repentance and Faith in Christ. Instead, Dr. Albert Mohler and Tim Keller are giving us Sexual Minorities who want to help us appease and accommodate them, so they as ‘LGBT+ Christians can Flourish within historic Christian traditions.’”
Tennessee –-(Ammoland.com)- The state and federal constitutions protect a right of individual citizens to keep and bear arms. The constitutions do not create the right – they protect a preexisting right. This fact is addressed in detail in an article by John Harris, TFA’s executive director and a co-author on parts of the Tennessee Star’s constitution series.
In this election cycle, almost everyone running for any public office likes to say that they believe in the 2nd Amendment, that they have the “endorsements” of some organization, or they show photos of themselves in camo, shooting at a range, or holding perhaps some hunting firearm.
But that is not what the 2nd Amendment is about and if these people want to claim to defend and understand the 2nd Amendment then they should be expected to understand it.
The 2nd Amendment is broad enough to cover the possession and ownership of hunting weapons, but it is first and foremost a political right to protect the ability of citizens individually and collectively to own and possess weapons suitable for military service.
Have you heard any of the candidates say that? Mae Beavers did! I have also heard Mark Green say it! But what about the others? Not often if at all and perhaps none of the candidates for governor, Congress, or major state offices say or believe it either.
While some talk about their handguns or their hunting longarms, few talk about true 2nd Amendment arms.
The Tennessee Supreme Court has correctly held that “arms” as used in the constitutional context are just that – weapons that would be useful for military service of individuals.
“As the object for which the right to keep and bear arms is secured is of a general nature, to be exercised by the people in a body for their common defense, so the arms–the right to keep which is secured–are such as are usually employed in civilized warfare, and constitute the ordinary military equipment. If the citizens have these arms in their hands, they are prepared in the best possible manner, to repel any encroachments upon their rights by those in authority.”
Andrews v. State, 50 Tenn. 165, 184-85 (1871) quoting from its earlier opinion in Aymette v. State, 2 Hum., 158.
Even the United States Department of Justice has argued to the United States Supreme Court that the 2nd Amendment protects civilian ownership of military grade weapons in its brief in United States v. Miller (1939)
While some courts have said that the right to bear arms includes the right of the individual to have them for the protection of his person and property as well as the right of the people to bear them collectively (People v. Brown, 253 Mich. 537; State v. Duke, 42 Tex. 455), the cases are unanimous in holding that the term “arms” as used in constitutional provisions refers only to those weapons which are ordinarily used for military or public defense purposes and does not relate to those weapons which are commonly used by criminals.
As you consider your options and prepare to vote, ignore the mudslinging ads and perhaps “quid pro quo” endorsements. Look at the specific voting histories. Look at what they actually do. Look at what they say when they are pressed on the topic.
Also, realize that a candidate’s true understanding and willingness to protect the true meaning and purpose of the 2nd Amendment may be a strong indicator of whether they are a capable, principled public steward. If the candidate is right on such a difficult concept in today’s “politically correct” environment, it is likely that they are going to be equally correct and trustworthy on other core constitutional and core conservative issues such as state’s rights, the proper size of government, the wrong of excess government growth and taxation, closing the borders, fighting illegal immigration and facilitators and so many more critical issues.
On the other hand, someone who is lukewarm on the 2nd Amendment or tells you they are strong because they have a permit or they wear camo likely does not truly understand the constitutional purpose of the 2nd Amendment. If not, can they truly be expected to defend and uphold any of it?

Tennessee Firearms Association and TFALAC seldom actually endorse a candidate. When it does its a rare event. However, TFALAC does provide some financial assistance to candidates that it believes are more likely to improve the laws on the 2nd Amendment issues or that it feels can defeat incumbents who have proven that they should not be in public office. The complete list of candidates to whom financial contributions have been distributed has been published on the TFA’s website and also on the TFALAC’s website.

In less than an hour on Wednesday, Facebook tycoon Mark Zuckerberg (shown) lost $16.8 billion.
The hit to the billionaire’s assets was delivered via the social media giant’s massive stock collapse. With $13.7 billion in gains for the year wiped out, as Bloomberg put it, he’s worth only $70 billion.
But the real loser isn’t Zuckerberg. It’s the investors in Facebook, who watched the stock drop 20 percent.
Not good news for Facebook, which is fighting for its reputation on numerous fronts. It has permitted data companies to mine the site for user information, and inspired the anger of leftists who think it should censor conservatives or news organizations the Left has declared out of bounds.
The nut of the story? Facebook’s having a tough time.
Stock Loss This morning, CNN reported that shares dropped 19 percent on the stock market’s opening bell, setting up the company for “its worst day ever — by far.”
After Wednesday’s disastrous loss of 20 percent, CNBC reported, today isn’t looking much better.
“Facebook is on pace for its worst day as a public company after opening 19.6 percent down,” CNBC reported after shares dipped to $174.48 Thursday morning. “Thursday’s plunge knocked roughly $120 billion in market value off the tech stock and is dragging the rest of the sector lower.”
The tumble began Wednesday after its latest earnings report was released. Stock dropped seven percent, Marketwatch noted, “then plummeted to a loss of more than 20% as a conference call with analysts progressed…. Should the losses hold into Thursday’s regular session, Facebook would lose more than $100 billion in market capitalization and lose the stock’s gains for the year thus far.”
Facebook Scandals As The New American reported a few days ago, Facebook is under increasingly hostile fire for the way it handles access to user information by outside entities.
It recently suspended an analytics firm, Crimson Hexagon, that was mining data to help governments, including Russia’s, Turkey’s, and ours, monitor “public sentiment,” as the Washington Post put it.
Crimson Hexagon did nothing wrong, but Facebook suspended the company anyway. Four federal agencies are probing its activities vis-à-vis the data-mining companies.
The FBI, the Federal Trade Commission, and the Securities and Exchange Commission, along with the Department of Justice, are probing Facebook and Cambridge Analytica, the firm that harvested private information on some 80 million Facebook users. Facebook has said that data gathering was improper.
Leftists Attack Facebook Facebook is also under increasing political pressure from the radical Left, including its media auxiliaries, to censor conservatives and others the Left believes are peddling falsehoods on the social-media platform.
According to Entertainment Weekly, during a “combative exchange with reporters” at a press event in Beverly Hills, Facebook executives couldn’t answer questions about the “the presence of right-wing conspiracy site Infowars and Fox News on the social network’s platform.”
Infowars, as The New American has reported, has been the subject of repeated attacks for its “conspiracy” tales. CNN’s Oliver Darcy attacked Facebook executives at an event in New York over their failure to censor Infowars.
Another reporter for an unnamed news organization broadened the attack to include Fox News. Entertainment Weekly took the exchange down verbatim:
Reporter: One of the most prominent organizations you’re working with is Fox News, and they’re sort of incorrigible about proliferating a lot of misinformation. Can you speak to your reasoning behind that? Why would you want to work with an organization like that when, as you said, you’re trying to limit the spread of false information?
At this, Rick Van Veen, head of global creative strategy at Facebook, jumped in: “Yeah, well, given that we have limited time. I’d like to keep it — Fidji and I don’t lead the news organization. Campbell Brown leads that…”
Another reporter in the background: Answer the question!
“We have limited time —”
Another reporter: We’ll give you time!
Simo: “We have a range of new shows we’re presenting —”
Reporter: But Fox News is still on every day, including the weekends on this programming list.
Simo: “So is CNN —”
This was met by some chortles in the crowd.
Zuckerberg’s Billions As for Zuckerberg, the billions he dropped in the stock collapse knocked him way down the billionaire’s list below the two men who were just above him in first and second.
They are Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos, who is worth $154 billion and earned $10 billion in the first two weeks of 2018, and Bill Gates, who is relatively poor by comparison with a net worth of $96.7 billion.
RED ALERT: Alex Jones Calls Upon Patriots To Spread The Word About Big Tech’s Murder Of Free Speech
The biggest and yet least talked about issue facing conservatives and Trump supporters heading into the mid-terms and the 2020 presidential elections is social media censorship and big tech’s efforts to rig elections by manipulating their algorithms.

Facebook Posts Record Loss; Investors Want Zuckerberg Out As Chairman
“Facebook’s stock dropped more than 20 percent, and the company lost $120 billion in market capitalization, the largest one-day dive in history.
And that wasn’t the only bad news. A group of investors is trying to remove Zuckerberg as chairman of the company because of its recent data-mining scandal. He is also its chief executive officer, a dual role with which the investors are unhappy.”
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization…called on Fox News to withdraw its representatives from an upcoming conference sponsored by a notorious anti-Muslim hate group.
A reminder: the West is not under Sharia, but still upholds the freedom of speech, which includes the right to criticize Islam. Criticizing Islam is not hate.
ACT For America does not espouse hate, but casts light on the atrocities committed worldwide in the name of Islam, and on the truth about the incursion of Islamic supremacist/Sharia ideology into the West. That ideology aims to shut down the freedom of speech, the cornerstone of democracy, as we can see from this call.
CAIR and other unindicted co-conspirators relentlessly chip away at the freedom of speech in accordance with the program of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to bring Sharia blasphemy restrictions to the West. The U.S. needs to declare the Muslim Brotherhood a terror organization and deal with its affiliates and offshoots accordingly.
Note in CAIR’s press release the same old accusations of “Nazism” and “white supremacism” aimed at ACT For America. Somali-born anti-Sharia activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali was also called a “white supremacist” by a group of Australian Muslim women. Yet no matter how often this accusation is made, Islam is not a race, and it is not “white supremacist” to oppose jihad and Sharia.
“CAIR Calls on Fox News to Pull Reps From Anti-Muslim Hate Conference”, CAIR press release, July 24, 2018:
WASHINGTON–The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today called on Fox News to withdraw its representatives from an upcoming conference sponsored by a notorious anti-Muslim hate group.
Several Fox News hosts and commentators are scheduled to appear at the September 4-5 conference of the hate group ACT For America in Arlington, Va.
Host Tomi Lahren, along with commentators Jeanine Pirro and Lisa Daftari, are listed as “Invited and Confirmed Speakers” for the conference.
ACT For America, founded by “Brigitte Gabriel,” is an anti-Muslim hate group with growing ties to white supremacist, neo-Nazi hate organizations….
The report by the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV), which was released this week, shows that the number of radical Islamists now totals 10,800, up from 9,700 the year before and shows a more than doubling of the number from five years ago
10,800 represents known “radical Islamists.” Chances are that there are many more, thanks to Germany’s open-door policy regarding Muslim migration.
The number of terrorism cases has also greatly increased between 2016 and 2017. Last year the agency said there had been 1,200 terror cases initiated, 1,000 of which were related to radical Islamic elements. In 2016, the total number was 250 with 200 of the cases being linked to radical Islam.
Sweden and France are also experiencing a rise in the number of “Islamic salafists,” by the thousands. With the EU continuing its suicidal immigration policies, those numbers will continue to multiply exponentially.
Willful blindness continues to put Western populations at risk.
“Number of Radical Islamic Salafists Tops 10,000 in Germany for the First Time,” Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, July 25, 2018:
The number of known radical Islamic Salafists has exceeded the 10,000 mark, according to a new report by the German domestic intelligence agency.
The report by the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV), which was released this week, shows that the number of radical Islamists now totals 10,800, up from 9,700 the year before and shows a more than doubling of the number from five years ago, Die Welt reports.
The newspaper has also claimed that the number of radical Islamists coincides with an increase in the number of criminal cases in which a radical Islamic motive or background was suspected.
The BfV noted that Germany is still in the crosshairs for radical Islamic terrorism and that the situation is still very serious. The agency said that they have identified around 1,880 individuals in Germany who they believe may have the potential to carry out a terrorist attack and more worryingly, that the number was continuing to rise.
The number of terrorism cases has also greatly increased between 2016 and 2017. Last year the agency said there had been 1,200 terror cases initiated, 1,000 of which were related to radical Islamic elements. In 2016, the total number was 250 with 200 of the cases being linked to radical Islam.
The report echoes that of other security agencies in Europe which continue to reveal a rise in the number of radical extremists…..
In a continued war of words: The chief of staff of the Iranian Armed Forces, Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri reportedly warned the United States on Tuesday that, just as Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warned American President Donald Trump, threatening Iran would result in an “unimaginable” response that the U.S. will “regret.”
Days ago, Trump tweeted to Rouhani:
“Never, ever threaten the United States again or you will suffer the consequences the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered before.”
As with Islamic supremacists/jihadists, taqiyya is a specialty (particularly since Iran is Shi’ite):
General Baqeri went on to say that Iran is a peace-loving country and has never started any wars against other nations.
Thanks to the Obama Administration, the Iranian regime was emboldened for years, and the Iran nuclear deal saw billions released to fund Iran’s jihad proxy wars. Obama also engaged in further shady backroom deals to the tune of tens of billions.
“Iran’s Top Commander: U.S. Will Regret Triggering ‘Unimaginable’ Response from Tehran,” by Adelle Nazarian, Breitbart, July 25, 2018:
The chief of staff of the Iranian Armed Forces, Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri reportedly warned the United States on Tuesday that, just as Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warned American President Donald Trump, threatening Iran would result in an “unimaginable” response that the U.S. will “regret.”
According to Iran’s state-run Fars News agency, Baqeri said:
As correctly stated in the remarks of our honorable president, the enemies, especially the U.S., whose deployment centers and interests are accessed by the Islamic Republic of Iran’s overt and covert defense power should not play with lion’s tail otherwise they will be given a strong, unimaginable and regretting response at a very vast extent in the region and the world.
Ironically, General Baqeri went on to say that Iran is a peace-loving country and has never started any wars against other nations. “Iran, as the superior power in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz, has always guaranteed security of shipping in the vital waterway and the global economy and enjoys the power to make any move (it desires) in this region,” Baqeri reportedly said.
While Iran has had a relatively peaceful history prior to the Islamic Revolution of 1979, the current government has been responsible for the export of terrorism throughout the region with its support for Houthi rebels in Libya, Hezbollah in Lebanon, its support for Hamas in the Palestinian territories, and its stalwart support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
The Shi’ite-majority region has also sowed conflict in the Muslim world, specifically as it pertains to its Sunni nemesis Saudi Arabia…..
A girl at a school in Sweden had her pants pulled down and was threatened with rape because she didn’t look “Muslim enough.”
The girl has been awarded 2,000 euros in damages after being subjected to “gross harassment” by other students at the Johannes school in Malmo.
The victim was bullied, called a slut and in one incident had her clothing removed because she wasn’t dressed “Muslim enough,” according to the girl’s father, who also said that his daughter was called a “slut” and asked what her religious affiliation was.
Shockingly, the boys who abused the girl also bombarded her with threats that their fathers would rape her.
According to a report by Sydsvenskan, other children as young as 6-years-old were also beaten and harassed at the school, which refused to do anything about the bullying.
Thanks to an investigation by the Discrimination Ombudsman and Malmö Against Discrimination, the girl has been awarded damages and moved to another school.
As we have previously highlighted, bullying of non-Muslim students in schools heavily populated by migrant Muslim children is becoming a major problem across Europe.
A mother in Germany whose daughter was being bullied by Muslim students because she was blonde, Christian and didn’t wear a headscarf was told by the headmaster of a school in Frankfurt to cover her up with a hijab.
Earlier this year, the President of Germany’s Teachers Association warned that anti-Semitic attacks and ISIS beheading videos were spreading like wildfire through German schools.
Heinz-Peter Meidinger said that the attacks on teachers were primarily driven by cultural and religious attitudes held by Arab and North African teens who do not respect women.
As we document in the video below, Europe’s desperate efforts to integrate migrants from Islamic countries who continue to arrive in large numbers are clearly failing.
