THE FIRST JUDGEMENT OF THE EARTH STARTED WITH WATER-IT ONLY MAKES SENSE THE LAST GENERATION WILL BE HAVING FLOODING
6 And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.
7 And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.
8 Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth,
9 There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah.
10 And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.
11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
12 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.
GOD PROMISED BY A RAINBOW-THE EARTH WOULD NEVER BE DESTROYED TOTALLY WITH A FLOOD AGAIN.BUT FLOODIING IS A SIGN OF JUDGEMENT.
Fierce Hurricane Matthew slightly weaker en route to Jamaica-[Reuters]-By Rebekah Kebede-October 1, 2016-YAHOONEWS
KINGSTON, Jamaica (Reuters) - Hurricane Matthew weakened slightly on Saturday as it headed toward Jamaica and Cuba, but with winds reaching 155 miles per hour (250 kph) forecasters said the storm was still powerful enough to wreck homes and islanders braced for its arrival.Matthew, the strongest hurricane in the Atlantic Ocean since Felix in 2007, was forecast to make landfall as a major storm on Monday on Jamaica's southern coast, home to the country's capital, Kingston, and its only oil refinery. It could also affect tourist destinations such as Montego Bay in the north.With Matthew about 420 miles (675 km) southeast of Kingston, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) downgraded its designation to a Category 4 from the top Category 5 on the Saffir-Simpson scale of hurricane intensity.Rain fell on the Jamaican capital on Saturday and authorities said they were taking all possible precautions."The government is on high alert," said Robert Morgan, director of communications at the prime minister's office, which hosted an emergency meeting to plan for the storm on Friday.Disaster coordinators, police and troops are on standby and shelters are being opened across the island, Morgan said.Cuba declared the first stage of an emergency in five eastern provinces. In its second city, Santiago de Cuba, the ruling Communist Party opened shelters and organizing volunteer teams to clean storm drains and gather food stocks."We have to work intensely," said Lazaro Exposito Canto of the party central committee, saying in the Granma newspaper that volunteers would go from house to house to warn of the storm.Cuba has a solid track record of preparing for storms. The last big one to hit was Sandy in 2012, which though weaker than Matthew, caused major damage to property and killed 11 people.The center of Matthew will move away from the Guajira Peninsula early on Saturday, across the central Caribbean Sea on Saturday and approach Jamaica late on Sunday, the NHC said.-ISLANDERS STOCK UP-Jamaica was hard hit by hurricane Gilbert in 1988. Matthew could be the most powerful storm to cross the island since records began, meteorologist Eric Holthaus said on Twitter.Many Kingstonians stocked up on water and food on Friday.Tenaj Lewis, 41, a doctor who was stocking up with groceries in Kingston on Friday, said Jamaica was much better-prepared for hurricanes than when Gilbert struck."The country literally shut down for months," she said.Since then, hurricanes have brought a few days of power outages but have not been nearly as destructive and many Jamaicans were unflustered.Southwest Airlines warned that flights to Montego Bay might be disrupted and said customers could reschedule.On Monday, Matthew is forecast to skim past the southern coast of Haiti, prone to devastating flooding. Officials said preparation efforts were focused in the south.(Additional reporting by Marc Frank in Cuba, Frank Jack Daniel in Mexico City and Brendan O'Brien in Milwaukee; Editing by Helen Popper and Marguerita Choy)
Powerful Hurricane Matthew soaks Colombia, heads for Jamaica-[Associated Press]-Howard Campbell, Associated Press-October 1, 2016-YAHOONEWS
KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) -- One of the most powerful Atlantic hurricanes in recent history weakened a little on Saturday as it drenched coastal Colombia and roared across the Caribbean on a course that still puts Jamaica, Haiti and Cuba in the path of potentially devastating winds and rain.Matthew briefly reached the top hurricane classification, Category 5, and was the strongest Atlantic hurricane since Felix in 2007.The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Matthew's winds had slipped from a peak of 160 mph (260 kph) to a still-devastating 145 mph (230 kph) and it was expected to reach the eastern part of Jamaica on Monday.The forecast track would carry it across Cuba and into the Bahamas, with an outside chance of a brush with Florida, though that would be several days away. "It's too early to rule out what impacts, if any, would occur in the United States and Florida," said Dennis Feltgen, a spokesman at the Hurricane Center.As Matthew skimmed past the northern tip of South America there were reports of heavy flooding and at least one death — the second attributed to the storm.Authorities said at least 18 houses were damaged along the La Guajira peninsula of Colombia, which has been suffering from a multi-year drought. They said a 67-year-old man was swept away to his death by a flash flood in an area where it hadn't rained for four years.Local TV broadcast images of cars and tree trunks surging though flooded streets in coastal areas.Colombian authorities closed access to beaches and urged residents living near the ocean to move inland in preparation for storm surges that they said would be most intense on Saturday.There was also concern that heavy rain across much of the country could dampen turnout for Sunday's nationwide referendum on a historic peace accord between the government and leftist rebels.In Jamaica, high surf began pounding the coast and flooding temporarily closed the road linking the capital to its airport. Carl Ferguson, head of the marine police, said people were starting to heed calls to relocate from small islands and areas near rural waterways.Many also began stocking up for the emergency."I left work to pick up a few items, candles, tin stuff, bread," 41-year-old Angella Wage said at a crowded store in the Half Way Tree area of the capital, Kingston. "We can never be too careful."Feltgen said storm force winds and rain will arrive well before the center of the storm. Jamaicans "basically have daylight today, they have tonight and they have daylight tomorrow to take care of what needs to be done," he said.Jamaicans are accustomed to intense tropical weather but Hurricane Matthew looked particularly threatening. At its peak, it was more powerful than Hurricane Gilbert, which made landfall on the island in September 1988 and was the most destructive storm in the country's modern history."Hurricane Matthew could rival or possibly exceed Gilbert if the core of the strongest winds does actually move over Jamaica," said Dennis Feltgen, a meteorologist and spokesman for the hurricane center in Miami. "There is no certainty of that at this point."Forecasters said rainfall totals could reach 10 to 15 inches (25 to 38 centimeters) with isolated maximum amounts of 25 inches (63 centimeters) in Jamaica and southwestern Haiti.Kingston, in the southeastern corner of Jamaica, is expected to experience flooding. The government issued a hurricane watch on Friday, and a tropical storm watch was issued for Haiti's southwest coast form the southern border it shares with the Dominican Republic to the capital of Port-au-Prince.In Haiti, civil protection officials broadcast warnings of a coming storm surge and big waves, saying the country would be "highly threatened" from the approaching system over the next 72 hours. They urged families to prepare emergency food and water kits.Emergency management authorities banned boating starting Saturday, particularly along the impoverished country's southern coastline, but numerous fishing skiffs could still be seen off the south coast.As of 11 a.m. EDT (1500 GMT), the storm was centered about 390 miles (625 kilometers) southeast of Kingston. It was moving west at 6 mph (9 kph).Hurricane-force winds extended outward up to 45 miles (75 kilometers) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 205 miles (335 kilometers).Matthew caused at least one death when it entered the Caribbean on Wednesday. Officials in St. Vincent reported a 16-year-old boy was crushed by a boulder as he tried to clear a blocked drain.___Associated Press writers John Marino in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Ben Fox in Miami, Joshua Goodman in Bogota, Colombia, and David McFadden in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, contributed to this report.

John Bolton: Hostile Foreign Governments Will Use Obama’s Internet Surrender to (UN to) Their Advantage-by John Hayward-29 Sep 2016
On Thursday’s edition of Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM, former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton criticized Republicans for failing to effectively oppose an Obama policy that has devastating long-term consequences: the surrender of American control over Internet registration.Breitbart Editor-in-Chief and SiriusXM host Alex Marlow asked Bolton about the impending surrender of Internet control to a multinational body, which Bolton saluted Senator Ted Cruz and some of his colleagues for making an “heroic effort” to block by inserting legislation into the continuing resolution for federal government funding.“It didn’t happen,” Bolton said regretfully about Cruz’s efforts. “I don’t know why. I don’t know whether the Republican leadership in the Senate and the House were not receptive to it. It’s inconceivable to me, inconceivable, that we’re about to let this happen, because it is completely correct that once we let go, we are never going to get it back.”LISTEN:He warned that “hostile foreign governments out there will use it to their advantage, whatever the particular form of the transfer that’s about to take place.”Bolton explained:It’s only a short period of time before the whole thing is taken over by the U.N., or U.N. specialized agencies, 190 members. The Internet as we have known it is about to disappear, and I think that has national security implications. It certainly has implications for freedom of communication internationally.I understand why Barack Obama wants to take it out of the control of the United States and give it to the rest of the world. That’s consistent with the way he’s handled foreign policy for the last eight years – and, by the way, consistent with the way Hillary Clinton will handle it. What stuns me is that there wasn’t more Republican opposition.I cannot understand it. You know, here we are in a tight election campaign, where Hillary Clinton is in deep trouble among millennials, there’s no enthusiasm for her, they’re voting for third party candidates. Here’s a chance for the party as a whole to make deep inroads into a group that spends – you know, you give me the figure of the percentage of their time they spend on the Internet that’s about to slip out of American control.This has been one government contract that’s been handled exactly right. The Commerce Department serves as an umbrella, it basically leaves ICANN alone, and now we’re going to give it to people in the international system whose objective is not to facilitate communication over the Internet, but to restrict it. And that’s what will happen.Bolton noted that “people on the Hill, and some others, are looking at possible legal action, I would think considering going to court and trying to get a temporary restraining order from Obama doing what a president can do, and transferring this thing.”“I don’t know, myself, what the basis for that claim would be, but I certainly wish them good luck and creative thoughts, because once September 30 comes and goes, unless Obama completely reverses himself, I think the transfer is going to happen fairly speedily,” he predicted. “It’s been in train for a long time. That’s another thing that I don’t understand. This has been talked about for years, and it’s as though people simply weren’t paying attention.”Marlow asked how President Obama could justify the Internet handover. Bolton anticipated he would cite his belief that “the Internet belongs to the whole world, and it’s just unfair and antiquated for the United States to control it, really.”“It shows a complete lack of awareness of the consequences of this. I do think it’s ideologically motivated. I think Obama has long believed the United States is too strong, too powerful, too assertive, too successful, and as he said to Joe the Plumber in 2008 about ‘spreading the wealth around,’ he wants to spread the power around. This is going to be a key part of his legacy,” Bolton said.Earlier in the interview, Bolton discussed the presidential race, noting that Hillary Clinton is walking a tricky balancing act between supporting Obama’s policies and presenting herself as a change agent.“I think it’s entirely understandable that what Clinton will try to do is avoid criticizing Obama, because she desperately needs to recreate the Obama coalition on November the 8th,” said Bolton. “She has gone out of her way, including in her 600-page-long tedious memoir about her days at the State Department, failing to distance herself from Obama.”This means the “default position” of the Clinton campaign and her friendly media is, “if there’s something wrong in the world, criticize George W. Bush.”“Why not? It worked for Obama. Maybe it will work for her as well,” Bolton said. “And I think the fact that the media are aiding and abetting this approach shouldn’t surprise anybody. I think no matter who the Republican nominee was this year, the media were going to be – as the Wall Street Journal has so aptly called them – stenographers for the White House and the Clinton campaign. And that’s exactly what they’re doing.”Bolton thought Trump “did what he needed to do” at the first presidential debate:Most people watching 90 minutes of a debate like that don’t score it on this debating point, or that debating point. They look at the entire thing. They want to know about the character of the people. And I think the fact that Trump was there for 90 minutes and held his own, or more than, in a format that Hillary Clinton has been familiar with since she was in law school, accomplished what he needed to accomplish.My critique of his performance would be that he missed opportunities. For example, you mentioned the foreign policy section, when they were asked about cyber warfare, and the dangers to the United States of hacking, and that gave Clinton a chance to give a little college-type lecture on Russia – by the way, omitting China, Iran, North Korea, and others – I thought at that point Trump could have talked about her email homebrew server for his entire time, and just drilled that point home.But, you know, people at home aren’t sitting there grading on that basis. I think the second debate, and the third debate, will be very different, and those – particularly in the media – who now confidently predict the outcome of the election, based on their take of this debate, are smoking something.Breitbart News Daily airs on SiriusXM Patriot 125 weekdays from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Eastern.
