So The U.S. Military Shut Down TWA Flight 8OO In 1996?


(Natural News) The official story surrounding the tragic crash of Trans World Airlines (TWA) Flight 800 back on July 17, 1996, maintains that the airplane just “exploded” out of nowhere, and that there was no terroristic foul play. However, William Henry Teele III, a 10-year Navy veteran-turned-whistleblower, offers a different version of events that pegs the United States military as the culprit.

Though not intentional, according to Teele’s account, several U.S. Navy vessels were in the area at the time. And one of them launched a missile that struck TWA 800 and sent it plunging into the sea off the coast of Long Island, N.Y.

Jack Cashill from American Thinker wrote a book about all this back in 2016. He published an article the other day stating that he believes Teele’s account to be legitimate, based on who he is and his presence on one of the ships in the fleet that witnessed the TWA 800 incident first-hand. (Related: We, too, published a report back in 2013 about other whistleblowers who exposed what they described as a coverup concerning the crash of TWA 800.)

“Teele did not claim to be on the ship that fired the missile,” Cashill writes – you can read a more detailed account of Teele’s background in Cashill’s article about the subject.

“He was on the USS Carr, a guided missile frigate that was one of the ‘combatants’ in the battle group that destroyed the unfortunate 747 and killed the 230 souls on board. Everything that I could verify about Teele’s account back then checked out.”

00000000000000Why was the Navy holding a missile drill right next to New York City?

On the evening of July 17, 1996, according to Teele, the Carr was testing out two new radar systems: AN/SPY-1 Alpha and AN/SPS 49. This involved a simulated air attack that was supposed to target a drone pulled by a military aircraft using a thousand-foot chain.

Teele’s job during the simulation was to monitor it from within the ship’s combat information center (CIC). Other ships were supposedly in the area as well, including the USS Normandy, the USS Trepang, and the USS Albuquerque.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) later confirmed that an Aegis cruiser and a U.S. Navy P-3 Orion were also present, the latter of which just so happened to be flying about 7,000 feet above TWA 800 when the plane was blasted out of the sky.

Teele has also stated publicly that he believes the USS Leyte Gulf was also involved, making this a very complex operation. There were lots of moving parts, and with TWA 800 right in the middle of the operation it makes sense that a major accident like this was possible.

Why the Navy chose to hold this exercise so close to New York City and right in a flight path remains unknown. One would think that the drill would have been better held somewhere more remote, far away from major airports?

Another factor in the accident was TSA 800’s low-flying altitude at the time. Air traffic control reportedly held the plane at 13,700 feet to allow U.S. Air 217 to pass safely overhead.

There were multiple commercial aircraft right in the middle of this Navy operation, in other words. And according to Teele, he and his fellow men “jumped the gun” in shooting down TWA 800, believing it to be the “assumed enemy” in the drill.

“We had a track on a contact that came out that fit the profile that we were given,” he maintains. “It matched the drill.”

All of the evidence surrounding what happened was taken to the “shred room,” Cashill explains, citing Teele who said that they all “ran to Bermuda” and disposed of the truth.

‘Mary takes us by the hand, inviting us to rejoice’, Pope Francis


During Angelus address on the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Pope Francis reminds faithful that the Blessed Mother takes each of us by the hand, and invites us to rejoice as we follow her trusting, faithful and ‘radical’ example.

By Deborah Castellano Lubov

Mary, our Mother, takes us by the hand, accompanies us, and invites us to rejoice. Pope Francis gave this reassurance during his Angelus address on the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary on Monday.

 

As the Church observes the Solemnity on 15 August, the Holy Father remembered that today’s Gospel offers us the dialogue between her and her cousin Elizabeth, telling the faithful to recognize Mary’s active role and presence in every moment of their lives.

Listen to our report:

In a special way, he encouraged us to learn from her example, and ask ourselves if we are capable of seeing God’s closeness and letting it empower us.

“Am I able to discern the work of God who, through gentleness and smallness, achieves great things?”

On this Solemnity, the Pope encouraged, “Mary sings of hope and rekindles hope in us.”

Mary holding our hand, inviting us to rejoice

Reflecting on Our Lady, the Holy Father reminded, “She is the first creature who, with her whole self, body and soul, victoriously crosses the finish line of Heaven.”

“She shows us that Heaven is within reach, if we too do not give in to sin, if we praise God in humility and serve others generously. She, our Mother, takes us by the hand, she accompanies us to glory, she invites us to rejoice as we think of heaven.”

The power of reciting the beautiful, familiar ‘Hail Mary’

The Pope recalled that when Mary enters the house and greets her cousin, Elizabeth says: ‘Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb,’ and how these words “full of faith, joy and wonder” have become part of the “Hail Mary.”

“Every time we recite this prayer, so beautiful and familiar, we do as Elizabeth did: we greet Mary and we bless her, because she brings Jesus to us.”

Mary, he said, not only accepts Elizabeth’s blessing and replies by giving us the Magnificat, she goes further, contemplating the work of God throughout history, highlighting that the Lord ‘has brought down the powerful from their thrones, and lifted up the lowly; he has filled the hungry with good things, and sent the rich away empty.’

As we listen to these words, the Pope said, we might ask ourselves: “is the Virgin not exaggerating, describing a world that does not exist,” where “the poor and hungry remain so, while the rich continue to prosper.”

Our Lady announces a radical change

Mary’s canticle, Pope Francis stressed, is not intended to chronicle time, but to tell us something “much more important,” namely “that God, through her, has inaugurated a historical turning point, he has definitively established a new order of things.”

“She, small and humble, has been raised up and – we celebrate this today – brought to the glory of Heaven, while the powerful of the world are destined to remain empty-handed. Our Lady, in other words, announces a radical change, an overturning of values.”

Mary, he said, ‘prophesies,’ in anticipating what her Son will say, inasmuch as He will proclaim blessed the poor and humble, and warn the rich and those who base themselves on their own self-sufficiency. He points out that she already understood that it will not be power, success and money that will prevail, but service, humility and love.

Mary’s prophetic voice reveals road to Heaven

“Looking at her, in glory, we understand that the true power is service, and that to reign, means to love.”

This, he said, is “the road to Heaven.”

“So, we might wonder: will this prophetic reversal announced by Mary affect my life? Do I believe that to love is to reign, and to serve is power? That the purpose of my life is Heaven, paradise? Or am I concerned only with worldly, material things?”

Jesus’ Place in the Assumption


Mary is assumed because of spiritual physics and her literal holiness.

In the Fall, humanity chooses self over God. That Original Sin is passed down to every person ever born and it is an illness that we live with. Even after being wiped clean from Original Sin in Baptism, we feel the effects of the Fall because of our inclination to sin (concupiscence). What is amazing about the Fall is the radicality of the choice of Adam and Eve.

They were living in perfect communion with God and with one another. They had better knowledge than we do of God’s goodness and of His providence. Despite this intimately deep knowledge of the Creator, they accept the lie that God is not that good, that He is holding back from them.

Ultimately, their sin is rooted in a lack of trust.

Directly after the Fall, God wastes no time in explaining how He will restore humanity with Himself. God tells the serpent that He will put enmity between it and the woman. The seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent (evil) will be at odds with one another. “They will strike at your head, while you strike at their heel” (Genesis 3:15). This is known as the protoevangelium or “first good news” in the Scriptures. Here, we have the primary detail of what the savior will do.

An injury to the achilles heel is a metaphor for a fatal blow that the serpent will inflict upon the offspring of the woman. This means that evil will kill THE offspring of THE woman. Evil will crush Jesus and kill him, the offspring of Mary. However, in the process, Jesus will strike at the serpent’s head, destroying its power over humanity in the future.

With Mary, we see that this promise is fulfilled. She lived free from the reign of the serpent. She experienced the weight of human sin (temptation) but she never gave into temptation. Her trust in the Father was so pure and sure that she lived as if the serpent’s head had already been crushed.

Science can aid us in viewing the sanctity of the Blessed Mother. Years ago, scientists discovered that fetal cells remain in the mother even after their child is born. Countless mothers have described the feeling that “my children still feel like they are a part of me” even long after they are born into the world. The fetal cells enter the woman’s body through the placenta and then they can morph into different tissue and live inside of the mother.

Applied to Mary, we see that she would have literally had the Body of Christ grafted to her body. Christ dwelled within her, even after that first Christmas morning. She shows humanity what can happen when we allow Jesus to act on us and be enlivened by his conquering of sin and death.

Our identity is righteousness because of what Christ did for us on the cross. He crushed evil by offering his life in our place.

Through it all, he had you on his mind.

Through it all, you had a mother standing by the foot of the Cross.

She was the first one who was like the ark of the covenant. She was a living and breathing tabernacle. She was a Eucharistic procession bringing Christ’s glory to the world until she was assumed into heaven.

Her Assumption reveals a key aspect of what it means to be Christian. We do not follow Christ because he is a great moral philosopher, but because being attached to him makes us who we were made to be. It allows us to be trusting even in the face of a darkening world.

We do not follow Christ because he is a great moral philosopher, but because being attached to him makes us who we were made to be. – Thomas Griffin

Because of sin, Adam and Eve were told that they would die. Originally, that was not part of God’s plan. Death is the greatest consequence of sin. Death is Satan’s gloating stick. But, Jesus destroyed it by entering death himself. Mary does not experience the effects of death because she never sinned. So, her body and soul do not separate at the end of her earthly life. She allowed Christ’s literal presence in her cells to invigorate her existence.

While we are not like Mary in the sense that we are free from sin, we are promised the same outcome as her. We are promised everlasting life and have the real choice to live from the power of the redemption. To inherit it, let us cling to the Eucharist so that we can have Christ live within us. Let us be transformed by what we receive and let us plead with Mary for her prayers, knowing that the spiritual physics that took her into heaven can one day be applied to ourselves at the resurrection of the body.

At least 40 people killed in Coptic church fire in Egypt

At least 40 people — most of them children — have died in a fire in a Coptic Orthodox church in Giza Governorate, Egypt, on Sunday, according to government and church officials.

Thirty-five children between two and six years of age were among the victims of the blaze that ripped through the Church of Saint Mercurius (known in Arabic as Abu Sefein), reported ACI MENA, CNA’s partner agency for the Middle East and Northern Africa.

The cause of the blaze has so far not been established. Reuters reported that an electrical fire broke out at the church where people gathered during the Divine Liturgy celebration. The blaze reportedly blocked the exit from the church and caused a stampede.

The parish priest, Fr. Abdul Masih Bakhit, also died during the fire.

The injured were transferred to Imbaba General Hospital and Agouza General Hospital after 30 ambulances attended the scene.

The Patriarch of the Coptic Orthodox Church, Pope Tawadros II, offered condolences to the families of the victims, according to a media statement, saying: “We are following with sorrow the tragic incident that occurred this morning in the Church of the Great Martyr Mercurius Abo Sefein in the Imbabah Airport area, north of Giza.”

“As we offer our condolences to the victims’ families, we pray for the injured and wounded, trusting that the hand of God will have mercy on us all.”

‘Faith is like fire, not a lullaby’, Pope Francis

The fire of faith should spur us to conversion, not lull us into complacency, Pope Francis said in his Angelus address Sunday.

In his weekly message on the Gospel, the pope reflected on a passage from St. Luke, who wrote: “Jesus said to his disciples: ‘I have come to set the earth on fire, and how I wish it were already blazing!’”

“Faith is not a ‘lullaby’ that lulls us to sleep, but rather a living flame to keep us wakeful and active even at night,” Francis said Aug. 14.

The pope delivered his reflection on the flame of faith from a window overlooking St. Peter’s Square. Afterwards, he prayed the Angelus, a traditional Marian prayer, in Latin, before sharing some concluding remarks.

“The Gospel,” he said, “does not leave things as they are; when the Gospel passes, and is heard and received, things do not remain as they are. The Gospel provokes change and invites conversion.”

According to Francis, the fire of the Gospel does not give a false sense of peace, but spurs people into action.

“It is just like fire: while it warms us with God’s love, it wants to burn our selfishness, to enlighten the dark sides of life — we all have them — to consume the false idols that enslave us,” he said.

The pope said Jesus is inviting each person to be rekindled by the flame of the Gospel. To illustrate this point, he quoted from the book “The Discovery of God,” by Henri de Lubac, a 20th century theologian and Jesuit priest.

“As Father de Lubac said — faith in God ‘reassures us — but not on our level, or so to produce a paralyzing illusion, or a complacent satisfaction, but so as to enable us to act,” he emphasized.

He also suggested everyone ask themselves if they are passionate about the Gospel, if they read it often, and if they carry it with them.

“Does the faith I profess and celebrate lead me to complacent tranquility or does it ignite the flame of witness in me?” he said, proposing the question for reflection. “We can also ask ourselves this question as Church: in our communities, does the fire of the Spirit burn, with the passion for prayer and charity, and the joy of faith? Or do we drag ourselves along in weariness and habit, with a downcast face and a lament on our lips? And gossip every day?”

Do an interior examination on these questions, Francis said, so that like Jesus, we can say “we are inflamed with the fire of God’s love, and we want to spread it around the world, to take it to everyone, so that each person may discover the tenderness of the Father and experience the joy of Jesus, which enlarges the heart — and Jesus enlarges the heart — and makes life beautiful.”

Pope Francis closed his message by asking for the intercession of the Virgin Mary.
