Ukraine says will deny access to Russian aid


I have to admit, when I first saw this photo I thought it was Ferguson, Missouri.

Global News

MOSCOW – A convoy of 280 Russian trucks reportedly packed with aid headed for eastern Ukraine on Tuesday, but Ukraine said it would deny the mission entry because it has not been certified by the Red Cross and could be a covert military operation.

The International Committee of the Red Cross said it had no information on what the trucks were carrying or where they were going. That has raised fears in Ukraine and the West, where leaders have voiced concerns that Russia could use the initiative as a pretext for sending troops into separatist-held territory.

Russian television and news agencies reported that 2,000 tons of aid was en route to Ukraine, where fighting between pro-Russian separatists and government forces has claimed more than 1,300 lives since April, according to a U.N. report.

SOCIAL SECURITY NOT A BENEFIT


 
From an unknown author……..But I can confirm, my mother’s direct deposit is also referred as a Federal benefit payment.
 Social Security
Before reading the information below, I’d like to share an incident that happened to me a couple months ago at a Walgreens.  My husband had a new prescription that cost over $200.  I have the Balance Rewards card from Walgreens, which honors prescriptions as well as other purchases.  So, I asked for the Balance Rewards for this prescription to be added to my Rewards account.
The pharmacist said she couldn’t because I was paying for it with an Entitlement.  I explained that we have never been on any kind of Entitlement Program.  She stated that Social Security and Medicare are Entitlements.  I tried not to come unglued, but told her nicely that my husband and I had earned our Social Security and Medicare with money paid into these accounts each and every payday.  She said she understood, but it was now called an Entitlement, and I couldn’t get the Rewards points.  I could care less about the Rewards points, but was livid that the government now called Social Security (that we paid into all our lives) an Entitlement!
To be fair to Walgreens, the pharmacist said that this was a FEDERAL LAW. — that no one on Entitlement can benefit from those payments in any way…getting reward points.  Wow!  The government has their hands in everything!  Anyway, now please read the item below…
If  you get any Social  Security at all in any manner, you might want to read.  Did  you know this?
Unfortunately most  did not, and I am one of  those whose Social Security funds are direct deposited to my bank, thus,  I never see the checks.  Once again, our beloved congressmen are playing fast and loose with vernacular.  What motive did they have for changing the name of our Social Security?  I’m sure they have a plan, and it won’t be to our betterment.
                                           
Here we go.    JUST REALIZED THAT  WITH REQUIRED AUTO DEPOSIT, I  NEVER GET TO SEE THE CHECK …    ALERT EVERYONE YOU KNOW.  THIS AFFECTS ALL OF US.*    
*Subject:*    SOCIAL SECURITY  becomes FEDERAL BENEFIT CHECK.  Have you noticed, the Social Security check is now referred to as a “Federal Benefit  Payment”?  I’ll be part of the  one percent to forward this.  I  am forwarding it because it touches a nerve in  me, and I hope it will in you.  Please keep passing it on until everyone in our country has  read it…   
The government is now referring to our Social Security checks as a Federal Benefit Payment.  This isn’t a benefit.  It is EARNED INCOME ! Not  only did we all contribute to Social Security but  our employers did too.  It totaled 15% of our income before taxes.  If you averaged $30K  per year over your working  life, that’s close to $180,000 Invested in Social Security. 
If you calculate the future value of your monthly  investment in social security( $375/month,  including both your and your  employers contributions) at a meager 1% Interest rate compounded monthly, after 40 years of working you’d have more than $1.3+ million dollars saved!  This is your personal investment.
Upon retirement, if you took out only 3% per year, you’d receive $39,318 per year, or $3,277 per  month .  That’s almost three  times more than today’s  average Social Security benefit of $1,230 per month, according to the Social Security Administration ( Google it – it’s a  fact).    
And your retirement fund would last more than 33 years (until you’re 98 if you retire at age 65)!  I can only imagine how much better most average-income people could live in retirement if our government had just invested our money in low-risk interest-earning  accounts .   
Instead, the folks in Washington pulled off a bigger Ponzi scheme than Bernie Madoff ever did.  They took our money and used it elsewhere.  They forgot (Knew) that it was OUR money they were taking.  They didn’t have a referendum to ask us if we wanted to lend the money to them.  And they didn’t pay interest on the debt they assumed.  And recently, they’ve told us that the money won’t support us for very much longer.  But is it our fault they misused our investments?  And now, to add insult to injury, they’re calling it a benefit, as if we never worked to earn every penny of it.  Just because they  borrowed the money,  doesn’t mean that our  investments were a charity! 
Let’s take a stand.  We have earned our right to Social Security and Medicare.  Demand that our legislators bring some sense into our government.  Find a way to keep Social Security and Medicare going, for the sake of that 92% of our population who  need it.
  
*Then call it what it is: Our Earned Retirement  Income.*  99% of people won’t  forward this.  Will you?  *You can bet I WILL!*  I THINK WE SHOULD DEMAND THAT THEIR SALARIES AND RETIREMENTS BE CALLED FEDERAL BENEFIT PAYMENTS.  THIS WOULD BE MORE HONEST THAN WHAT THEY HAVE DONE TO OUR SOCIAL SECURITY.

Not Enough Words


How long before this image is in our country, in our cities and neighborhoods? If you don’t think it can’t happen………think again. The ISIS’s threats are real. Does this have to happen to one our babies before we get angry enough to prevent more. The ISIS is here. Our border is open. Our government does nothing. Obama’s on the 10th tee!

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness …” ~~ Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

Three of my sons and I were together a couple of times this past week. It’s been a long time. The oldest lives in São Paulo Brazil, while another is in Los Angeles, and my youngest in Provo, Utah. All are leading busy lives. Going to school, working jobs, building empires.

During my last visit with just my son Matt, before he returned to São Paulo on Saturday, we talked about how people believe we live in the worse of times. Blame it on the media we agreed. With modern technology, news stories, photos and videos from any part of the world comes to us in an instant and on devices we carry in our…

NAACP Calls For Feds To Investigate Black Teen’s Murder By St. Louis Police


You can not yet refer to this as a murder……you do not have the facts and there are conflicting stories from so called witnesses.

MUST READ FOR ALL AMERICANS


We better get our act together!!

 

This  needs to go around, over and over. We need to learn !!!

Read  entire story, we should be very, very concerned about  this!
And  to think that Fox News was the only channel that reported this. They may  be “politically incorrect”, but at least they had the courage to report  it.

      In  my opinion, the Muslims are all getting very brave now. Read Tedd  Petruna’s story below. Can you imagine, our own news media now are so  politically correct that they are afraid to report that these were all  Muslims?

Unbelievable.  Thank God for people like Tedd Petruna.

      Tedd  Petruna is a diver at the NBL (Neutral Buoyancy Lab) facility at NASA  Houston .. Tedd happened to be on the AirTran Flight 297, from Atlanta  to Houston. Here’s his report :

      “One  week ago, I went to Ohio on business and to see my father. On Tuesday,  the 17th, I returned home. If you read the papers the 18th you may have  seen a blurb about where an Air Tran flight was canceled from Atlanta to  Houston due to a man who refused to get off of his cell phone before  take- off.. The story was only on Fox News. That was NOT what really  happened.

I  was seated in 1st class coming home. Eleven Muslim men got on the plane  in full Muslim attire. Two of them sat in 1st class and the rest seated  themselves throughout the plane, in coach class, all the way to the  back. As the plane taxied out to the runway, the stewardesses gave the  safety spiel that we are all so familiar with.

At  that time, one of the men in 1st class, got on his cell and called one  of his companions back in coach. He proceeded to talk on the phone in  Arabic very loudly and very, very aggressively. This activity took the  1st stewardess out of action for she repeatedly told the man that cell  phones were not permitted at that time. He ignored her as if she were  not there. The man, who answered the phone back in the coach section,  did the same and this took out the 2nd stewardess. Further back in the  plane, at the same time, two younger Muslims, one in the back on the  aisle, and one sitting in front of him by the window, began to show  footage of a porno video they had taped the night before. They were very  loud about it.

The  3rd stewardess informed the two men that they were not to have any  electronic devices on at this time. One of the men said “shut up infidel  dog!”

The  stewardess attempted to take the camcorder and the Muslim began to  scream in her face in Arabic. At that exact moment, all eleven of the  men got up and started to walk throughout the cabin. I guess that  because of the noise, the flight crew must have decided that there was  something amiss and changed the plane’s directions to head back to the  terminal.

The  commotion and noise was reaching a feverish pitch, and at this point I  had had enough! I got up and started towards the back of 1st class when  I heard a voice behind me from another Texan twice my size, say, “I got  your back.” Then I grabbed the man, who had been on the cell phone, by  the arm and said, “You WILL sit down in your seat or you WILL be thrown  from this plane!” As I “led” him around me to take his seat, the fellow  Texan grabbed him by the back of his neck and his waist and headed him  back to his seat. I then grabbed the 2nd man and said, “You WILL do the  same!”

He  protested loudly, but my adrenaline was flowing now and he was going to  go also. Just as I escorted him forward, the plane stopped, the doors  opened and three TSA agents and four police officers entered the cabin.  Myself and my new Texas friend were told to cease and desist for they  had the situation under control.

I  was quite happy to oblige, actually. There was still some sort of  commotion in the back, but within moments, all eleven Muslim men were  escorted off the plane. The TSA agents then had their luggage unloaded.  We talked about the occurrence and were in disbelief that it had  happened.

Then  suddenly, the door opened again and in walked all eleven Muslim men!  Stone faced, eyes front and robotic, (the only way I can describe it)  and they were reseated. The stewardess from the back had been in tears  and when she saw the men, she was having NONE of it! Since I was up  front, I heard and saw the whole ordeal. She told the TSA agents that  there was NO WAY she was staying on the plane with the Muslim men. The  agent told her that they had searched the men and were going through  their luggage with a fine tooth comb. However, nothing had been found  and that the men were allowed to proceed on to Houston.

The  captain and co-captain came out of the cockpit and told the agent, “We  and our crew will not fly this plane!” After a word or two, the entire  crew, luggage in tow, left the plane. Five minutes later, the cabin door  opened again and a whole new crew walked on. Again, this was where I had  had enough! I got up and asked the TSA agent,” What the hell is going  on?

I  was told to take my seat. The airlines and TSA were sorry for the delay  and we would be home shortly. I said, “I’m getting off this plane”. The  stewardess sternly told me that she could not allow me to get off. Now  I’m really mad! I said, “I am a grown man who bought this ticket, whose  time is mine, with a family at home, and I am going through that door,  or I’m going through that door with you under my arm, but I AM going  through that door!”

And  then I heard a voice behind me say, “So am I!” Then everyone behind us  started to get up and say the same thing. Within two minutes, I was  walking off that plane where I was met by more TSA agents, who asked me  to write a statement about the incident. I had five hours to kill at  this point waiting for the next flight to Houston , so why the hell not  give them my statement. Due to the amount of people who got off that  flight, it was canceled. I was supposed to be in Houston at 6 PM, but I  finally got there at 12:30 AM. If you don’t believe this, look up the  date and then Flight 297 from Atlanta to Houston.

If  this wasn’t a terrorism dry run, I don’t know what is. The terrorists  wanted to see how TSA would handle it, how the crew would handle it, and  how the passengers would handle it. I’m telling this to you because I  want you to know. The threat IS real. I saw it with my own  eyes.”

Tedd  Petruna

May  I request that you keep this going until this incident reaches the email  of all POLITICIANS and the news media!

PEOPLE  THAT DELETE THIS TYPE OF EMAIL, REFUSE TO PASS IT ON, OR SIMPLY DON’T  CARE ARE ONE OF THE REASONS THAT PEOPLE THAT DO CARE CAN’T MAKE ANY  HEADWAY… THE THREATS ARE REAL.
