U.S., UK aircraft carriers lead show of naval strength around South China Sea

(RFA) – Three aircraft carriers and a dozen other warships from U.S.-allied nations sailed on the fringes of the South China Sea this week in one of the biggest shows of Western maritime might in the region for years.

Those drills in the Philippine Sea will be followed by two weeks of large-scale military exercises in the South China Sea – sending a message to Beijing and asserting the freedom of navigation in an increasingly tense Indo-Pacific.

“This is probably the first time since the Taiwan Strait crisis in 1996 that we saw these kind of carrier-based operations,” said Richard Bitzinger, senior fellow at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS) in Singapore.

time for wednesday morning prayer and thoughts for today

Welcome to the prayer for the return of Jesus Christ.

This is a prayer I’ve put together where I would like to pray for anyone within the sound of my voice.

All I ask you to do, is to agree with me as I pray, and together we will seek our Heavenly Father.

Let us pray…

Heavenly Father, we gather together and come into agreement in the wonderful and powerful Name of Jesus Christ.

Where two or more are gathered there You’ll be in the midst of us and anything we agree upon as touching You will surely do.

Father in Jesus Name, there is no distance in the spirit and we thank You for the listener who desires a prayer for the return of Your Son, Jesus Christ.

Your Word says He’s coming again, they believe it, and that settles it.

Help them hold fast to Your promise that Jesus will come on the day set aside by You!

As they wait, help the listener live as if You are not returning in their lifetime.

Although they are excited for the return of Your Son, and want to see it as soon as possible, help them to live a life that is pleasing to You as they share the Gospel with people.

A life that is lived so that if Jesus returns in their lifetime they will not be ashamed of His sudden appearance.

Hallelujah!

We decree and declare that the listener is living a life that is acceptable in Your sight.

More trouble for Biden: North Korea claims successful test of 'weapon of great significance'

North Korea announced on Monday that its military had successfully tested long-range cruise missiles with the ability to strike a target more than 900 miles away.

"The 'long-range cruise missiles' were launched on Saturday and Sunday and allegedly hit a target 1,500 kilometers away, officials said on North Korea's state-run media," ABC News reported.

"The missiles flew for over two hours, according to the report," the report said.

Joseph Dempsey, a defense researcher at the International Institute for Strategic Studies, said the development of a cruise missile should be a concern, the BBC reported on Monday.

"The development of a long-range cruise missile could pose additional challenges for South Korea's missile defenses," Dempsey said.

He said that a "cruise missile doesn't have to follow a straight trajectory. Its flight plan may be programmed to avoid defenses or use terrain to reduce detection, but we still don't know exactly how the North Korean version navigates."

Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato said that unlike previous launches by North Korea, the latest missile test did not fly over Japan.]\

But if the missile can fly as far as North Korea reported, he said, "it would be a major concern for us," according to NBC News.

The missile test follows an August report by the International Atomic Energy Agency that said North Korea appears to have restarted a nuclear reactor capable of producing plutonium for nuclear weapons.

"Since early July 2021, there have been indications consistent with the operation of the 5MW(e) reactor," the IAEA report said.

"The DPRK’s nuclear activities continue to be a cause for serious concern," the report said. "Furthermore, the new indications of the operation of the 5MW(e) reactor and the Radiochemical Laboratory are deeply troubling.

"The continuation of the DPRK’s nuclear programme is a clear violation of relevant UN Security Council resolutions and is deeply regrettable."

In its annual report, the International Atomic Energy Agency said North Korea appeared to have restarted a nuclear reactor believed to have produced plutonium for the country's nuclear arsenal

Heavenly Father, I come to you today, full of anxiety and fear of what is going on around me. Lord, you know it is in my nature to want to run away and hide from my problems. But I don’t want to run away anymore. I want to face my fears head-on, and I need your help.

Lord, I desperately need your strength to move forward. I need your Spirit to lead me. I feel weak and helpless. I feel as though I have no strength to carry on. But somewhere in the back of my mind, I know that in my weakness, you are strong. Your word tells me that I can delight in hardships, persecutions, and difficulties. For in times of trouble, you are very strong indeed (2 Corinthians 12:10).

Gracious God, please help me to see things as you see them. As my situation seems to grow into a mountain of hardship, please help me see you more and more. Help me to recognize your provision and wait upon you to lead me. I know you care about me. You care about what I am going through. Thank you so much. I lean on you now, for every bit of strength to go on. For it is by your strength—the strength of your Spirit—that helps me scale every mountain in my life. Help me to keep going, even when I’d rather give up. I need you.

Father, I commit every worry to you today. Every thought that darkens my mind, every cloud that covers my heart, I commit them to you. I ask for your peace—the peace that surpasses all understanding. Right in the middle of my worst fears, Lord, I ask for your peace and rest.

Holy God, in the name of your Son, Jesus, I pray for wisdom in this situation. I ask for the wisdom only you can give, and I believe you will give it. Thank you for that promise. I believe you will give me strength to stand. I believe that you will be with me every step of the way. I believe you’ve got this. You’ve got me.

Thank you, Lord, for hearing me when I pray. I lift my hands in praise to you today and know that you are faithful. I trust You completely with my fears. I thank you for giving me strength through the storms of life. I pray these things in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.

Danish Media Outlet Discovers Obama NSA Was Spying On Ally Leaders

OAN Newsroom

According to new revelations from a Danish media outlet, the U.S. National Security Agency under the Barack Obama administration was using resources provided by Denmark’s intelligence agency to spy on European politicians. The investigation and subsequent news, known as the Dunhammer Report, followed details laid out in Edward Snowden’s Whistleblowing episode in which he uncovered the NSA’s abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act courts to spy on private citizens.

The new revelations show the extent to NSA surveillance wasn’t only limited to U.S. citizens as it is now clear the agency was also spying on European politicians, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Previously in 2013, Merkel made it clear that the NSA spying on her would be unacceptable.

This cooperation between the American and Danish intelligence agencies even escalated to the point where Denmark allowed the NSA to set up south of Copenhagen on the Island of Amager. In addition to Germany, elite government officials in France, Sweden and Norway were under surveillance as well. French President Emmanuel Macron responded to those reports on Monday.

“It, very clearly, is not acceptable between allies, even less so between allies and European partners,” he asserted. “I care about the relationship of confidence that unites Europeans and Americans, and we thus have to do everything in our power for our common security.”

In 2013, Obama’s State Department spokesperson, Jen Psaki, stated this matter would be alleged because of Snowden’s report, but reserved the administrations right to neither confirm nor deny every single report.

“More allegations will surface given the quantity of classified information leaked by Mr. Snowden. I want to set the precedent, or set the point I guess, from here today that we have no plans to lay out our tactics or further specifics details from here,” she announced. “We feel as you’ve heard us say a couple of times that the best place to have these conversations is with our allies, with our diplomatic partners. Those will continue and we’ll address pieces as they come.”

The most eye opening discovery of the report is the possible dishonesty of the Obama administration as the question now is whether the spying took place before or after Obama had promised to stop spying on allies. In early 2014, Obama made this promise in response to the Snowden reports.

“I’ve made clear to the intelligence community that unless there is a compelling national security purpose, we will not monitor the communications of heads of state and government of our close friends and allies,” the former President expressed. “I’ve instructed my national security team, as well as the Intelligence Community, to work with foreign counterparts, to deepen our coordination and cooperation in ways that rebuild trust going forward”

It is unclear why the administration felt the need to collect data on top ranking officials of American allies, though the latest Dunhammer Report does expand our understanding of the extent to which the spying was taking place. This additionally provides clear evidence that the Obama administration had been making secret deals with foreign nations to achieve those goals.

Borris Johnson And Idiotic Ideology Want To Keep Us In The E.U. For The Benefits Money And Benifits Of A Man Made Virus That Was Spread Though The Air BY Land Sea And Airo,Space By The Brits That Was Started By The Chinks.

Boris Johnson said he would rather see "bodies pile high" than take the country into a third lockdown, sources familiar with the conversations have told the BBC.

'Greed' and 'capitalism' helped UK's vaccines success, says PM

Boris Johnson has told a private meeting of Tory MPs that the success of the UK's Covid vaccine programme was because of "capitalism" and "greed".

But sources said the prime minister had "very insistently" withdrawn his comments straight after making them during a Zoom call with backbenchers.

The remarks were not connected to the EU row over vaccine supply, they added.

A government source said the PM was referring to the profit motive driving companies to develop new products.

The PM also reportedly praised work by large drug companies during the pandemic.

EU tussle with UK over AstraZeneca jabs escalates

PM to phone EU leaders to avoid vaccine export ban

Extra £1.6bn for Covid vaccine rollout

The prime minister's full remarks, which first appeared in the Sun newspaper, were reported to be: "The reason we have the vaccine success is because of capitalism, because of greed, my friends."

Wales Office Minister David TC Davies, who attended the meeting, said Mr Johnson "made it absolutely clear it was a joke - a reference to the film Wall Street".

He added: "Whoever leaked that needs to take a long hard look at themselves because it was very irresponsible."

The remarks came as some 28.3 million people in the UK - more than half the adult population - have had at least a first dose of either the Oxford-AstraZeneca or Pfizer vaccines.

But the latest figures show jabs being administered across the EU at less than a third of the rate achieved so far in the UK.

Over the last few days, Mr Johnson has been speaking to European leaders in an effort to dissuade them from imposing an export ban on Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine exports to the UK when they meet on Thursday.

One MP told me the prime minister's "greed" comments had been intended to poke fun at the chief whip, who was gobbling his cheese and pickle while sitting next to him during the meeting.

Believe it or not, the Conservative Party's boss of discipline, Mark Spencer, has been christened with the nickname "Big Farmer", like "Big Pharma" - the pharmaceutical companies.

And it's vehemently denied that the PM's comments were designed to stir up anything in the row with the EU.

Sources are adamant that Mr Johnson was not intending to be critical of the pharmaceutical companies in any way.

During the MPs' committee meeting, Mr Johnson praised AstraZeneca for providing vaccines in the UK at cost.

One of those who attended said they had never seen anyone withdraw a comment "so fast or so vehemently" as the prime minister's one on procurement.

Mr Johnson "realised he had messed up as soon as he had said it, and didn't mean it", the MP added.

Several sources said he had asked those present to "remove that comment from your collective memory".

It is understood the prime minister did not compare the UK's vaccination efforts with those of EU countries during his address.

In his Budget earlier this month, Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced an extra £1.65bn to help reach the target of offering a first dose to every UK adult by 31 July.

We Are Approaching The Next Big World War.

US-Iran

A US Coast Guard ship fired warning shots at an Iranian boat which came too close to USA naval vessels in the Strait of Hormuz this week.

The Pentagon said 13 fast boats from Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy (IRGCN) came within 140m (459ft) of US vessels on Monday.

In response to the second incident of its kind in the region within a fortnight, the US ship fired 30 warning shots.

The former Iranian Pre
