The contract with Orlando, Florida-based AMTIS, Inc. includes classes entitled “Communicating with Congress: Briefing and Testifying” and…

(NTEB News Desk) — ANOTHER OBAMA FIRST IN DESTROYING OUR NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY
“‘Tis our true policy to steer clear of permanent Alliances, with any portion of the foreign world.” George Washington, Farewell Address, September 19, 1796
A German Army brigadier general who recently served with NATO forces in Afghanistan is assuming duties as the chief of staff of U. S. Army Europe, the first time a non-American officer has held that position.
Army sources in Europe said the first-ever assignment of a German general to the USAREUR staff is unrelated to the political furor over the spying revelations, but does reflect the increased importance of multinational operations in NATO.
Brig. Gen. Markus Laubenthal, most recently the commander of Germany’s 12th Panzer Brigade in Amberg, and chief of staff of Regional Command North, International Security Assistance Force Afghanistan, will be stationed at USAREUR headquarters, Wiesbaden, Germany. He could report to…

TKM-Ebola, a drug developed by Tekmira Pharmaceuticals Corp. has been approved by U.S. regulators.
The Food and Drug Administration had previously put tests of the drug on hold.
The Vancouver-based company said yesterday that the agency altered the therapy’s status to possibly allow its use in those infected with the virus that
has killed 932 people in West Africa since March.
“We have been closely watching the Ebola virus outbreak and its consequences, and we are willing to assist with any responsible use of TKM-Ebola,” Tekmira’s Chief Executive
Officer Mark Murraysaid in a statement.
“The foresight shown by the FDA removes one potential roadblock to doing so.” Stephanie Yao, an FDA spokeswoman, said she couldn’t discuss specific products and deferred questions to Tekmira. The company didn’t say in the statement if or when it would begin tests, only that it might, and didn’t say how much of the drug is…

The terror group President Barack Obama threatened to strike in Iraq Thursday evening is itself threatening to strike the American homeland.
“I say to America that the Islamic Caliphate has been established,” Abu Mosa, a spokesman for the terror group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), told VICE Media in a video interview posted online Thursday. “Don’t be cowards and attack us with drones. Instead send your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq.”
“We will humiliate them everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House,” he added.
The video is the first of a multipart series on ISIS VICE Media says it plans to release. VICE Media reporter Medyan Dairieh recently spent three weeks in the ISIS-controlled Syrian city of Raqqa, which the terror group has proclaimed the capital of its newly declared Islamic caliphate.

THERE ARE NO ATHEISTS IN HELL
“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:9-11
A new television show launched yesterday August 7th on the Adult Swim channel entitled ‘Black Jesus‘, and it is an monumental piece of demonically-inspired garbage that’s completely perfect for the Laodicean church age that we find ourselves in.
Our review of this program, such as it is, will be a brief one. After I started watched the episode, alternating feelings nausea and anger took their turns welling up in me and I was unable to watch for very long. But suffice it to say…

Promiscuous sex. Is it worth it? Is it really worth it? One-night stands with total strangers. Meeting, courtship, engagement, wedding, honeymoon, divorce, all during an overnight impulse. Checkout time is the end of the relationship. Walking home in the morning with messed-up hair and makeup, wearing the same clothes you wore the night before. Don’t worry, no one knows. Yeah, right. The consequences are staggering. Not just to the participants, but also, and especially, to those with whom they will spend a lifetime. While such behavior is not advisable for either gender, given the potential for disease and pregnancy, not to mention the social and marital implications and complications, it is especially destructive to females. I have no idea how a woman can so completely degrade herself as to give herself away to a total stranger. Does she not understand the four- and five-letter words she will be called? Does…
