A Carteret County mother makes a shocking discovery when she goes to eat her chicken sandwich from a McDonald's drive-thru in Morehead City. That customer, Charleigh Matice, said when she went to put mayonnaise on her bun she found a swastika etched in butter on it.
Matice said she couldn't believe someone could possibly do that in this day and time.
"Is this a joke? Does somebody really think they're funny?," Matice said.
This anti-Semitic symbol was used by the Nazi party in Germany during the Holocaust. Her grandfather had fought in World War II. She said the swastika really offended her.
"Many people died because of that symbol and it’s not something that should be taken lightly. It’s not something that should be thrown around," Matice said.
She said when she went inside the restaurant employees offered to replace it.
"I really didn't have an appetite at that point so I said I rather have my money back,” Matice said.
However, Matice said even with the money she didn't feel satisfied. She wants the incident addressed at a larger scale.
"Maybe it needs to be part of training, or maybe brought up more often so that people know that this is not okay," Matice said.
We contacted McDonald's corporate office about the incident. They emailed us a statement from the owner of that McDonald's in Morehead City.....

This is one of my favorite photos of all time.
The man’s name was Horace Greasley. He was a British POW famous for escaping over 200 times to visit his girlfriend, a local Jewish named Rosa Rauchbach. Why did he keep going back? Loyalty. He returned every time with extra food or other contraband to share with his fellow captives. Greasley spent 5 years as a prisoner of war, during which time he served as camp barber and worked in the marble quarries.
Following capture, the men were forced to march for ten weeks from France to Poland. The men suffered deplorable conditions and spent a winter, in temperatures as low as -40C, lodged in an old horse stable. Those who survived the march and train transfer were beaten, tortured, and starved. Greasley was once beaten so badly he lay unconscious for 2 days. His biography, “Do the Birds Still Sing in Hell?” was published in 2008 and is now slated to become a movie. Two years after the book’s release, he died at age 91.
When I see this photo, I always admire the defiance in his . He refused to be broken. Be that guy.
Oh and by the way, the German officer he is boldly staring at is the notoriously deadly .

While Obama's vacational tendencies, along with the First Lady's, have been a frequent subject of criticism among Conservative opposition, a recent airing of a mostly forgotten 2008 interview is now taking the Internet by storm.
As Obama begins his 16-day Martha's Vineyard vacation, which when completed will total up to 141 vacation days in six years of running the White House, the video that has surfaced seems to reflect yet another promise by the President willfully unfulfilled.
In an interview with journalist Bob Herbert, which aired in January of 2008 at the Kennedy Center, Obama waxes anti-prophetic on the duties of the office of the President, assuming at the time that he would win the Presidency.
Among a number of answers given to the journalist, the demands and expectations of the Presidency and vacation came up, as backlit, no doubt, by then President Bush's highly criticized brush clearing vacattions in Crawford, Texas.
In the interview, regarding the office of the presidency, Obama stated the following:
"You have to understand that if you seek that office you have to be willing to give your life to it."
In further explanation to Obama's--then--mindset, he stated:
"You give me this office, in turn my fears, doubts, insecurities, foible, need for sleep, family life, vacations, leisure is gone."
Apparently, the President doesn't consider frequent golf outings as leisure time, it would seem.
Obama then went on to explain why the demands of the office would leave no time for down time:
"I'm giving myself to you, and the American people should have no patience for whatever's going through your head because you've got a job to do."
"You dont make that decision unless your prepared to make that sacrifice, that tradeoff, that bargain."
"That's a profound decision that you don't make lightly."
Down the homestretch of the clip, Obama sums up what many consider as the epic failure of his presidency in one prophetic exclamation:
"Those who make mistakes, I suspect, in the president's office, make it because they haven't fully thought through the dimensions of that choice."
The interview was conducted in conjunction with the publishing of Obama's book, "The Audacity of Hope," which might be a rather perfect explanation of what the American people expected in antithesis to what they actually received, in a President who many naive journalists referred to as "God-like" much, much, earlier on in his term.
But not anymore.....

It took the US CDC almost five months before it finally issued a travel warning concerning the Ebola virus...why?
By Barry Secrest
As the deadly Ebola virus outbreak now threatens world populations even while the US border is beginning to look more like one of Obama's illusory "Red Lines" than an actual border, the fact that July 2014 has proved to be a rather dire portent of things to come, perhaps need to be examined a bit more closely.
Nor was it lost upon us when we set upon this particular review of our News section, which we periodically undertake, in an effort to make sense of the news items which we've published.
It was March 29th when we initially noticed in world news that something might be terribly wrong on the Dark Continent.
Africa was already reeling from an Ebola outbreak which showed signs, even early on, of being difficult to control.
On March 29th we published an article seeking to warn those who may not be paying needful attention:
The article from RT seemed to be warning that this wasn't one of Africa's typical outbreaks, stating:
"The outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus is said to have already claimed 63 lives in rural Guinea has now spread to the West African nation’s capital, Conakry, with the Health Ministry ringing the alarm and officials calling it a “threat to regional security.”
Needless to say, the only organization in America which seemed to be paying any attention, at this point, was a Christian organization based in Charlotte NC known as SIM USA, whose two now Ebola-stricken missionaries are the same ones being treated at Emory medical center in Atlanta.
So much was our concern that the following day on March 30th, we published a follow-up article titled:
In this article from Reuters World, the message warns anyone willing to listen that something was indeed afoot in West Africa:
"The World Health Organisation said in the statement it does not recommend any travel or trade restrictions be applied to Liberia, Guinea or Sierra Leone based on the current information available about the outbreak.
Ebola has killed more than 1,500 people since it was first recorded in 1976 in what is now Democratic Republic of Congo, but this is the first fatal outbreak in West Africa."
Despite these two widely read warnings from our news site, the message still went seemingly unnoticed by those in power at least at the heart of our nations governing center, and despite the ironic twist of an American leader with deep roots in Africa.
In fact, at about the same time on March 29th we published another article focusing on what appeared to be Obama's chief concern which was dedicated to the actual arming of the very terrorist organization which would take over Iraq in only a few months hence:
The article written by this writer stated the following:
"Barack Obama, in talks with Saudi King Abdullah, is actually considering the arming of Syria's "moderate opposition Islamist rebels" with high-tech shoulder-fired weapons systems. The only problem being that the rebels now in Syria are no longer considered to be moderate by anyone, assuming that they ever were. The opposition rebels are, in fact, almost entirely made up of radical Islamist fundamentalists bent on creating a Syrian-Islamic Caliphate."
So, while Obama was referring to ISIS as a JV team, this website was actually warning anyone who might listen, of the undeniable dangers associated with a radical Islamic force in Iraq.
Despite our practically jumping up and down at this point, there was still little if any news in our government, much less the US mainstream media at large, devoted to the terror building in Africa.....

The author of “The Harbinger,” the inspiration behind the “Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” documentary, says the seventh harbinger is no more.
A tree that was placed at the site of the 9/11 Muslim terror attack in New York City has died, has been removed, and destroyed.
“Harbinger” author Jonathan Cahn says it’s because of his book that the tree will not be replaced.
His work examines the nine harbingers, or warnings, recorded in the Bible that were delivered to Israel before the nation disintegrated. He contends God is giving the same nine warnings now to America to urge the nation to repent.
One of the harbingers was a sycamore tree at Ground Zero, which after the destruction of the Twin Towers was replaced by an evergreen, a move Cahn believes follows the Isaiah prophecy.
Now the replacement tree is gone, he said.
“The ancient sign of nearing national judgment has been manifested. The erez tree has fallen. The seventh harbinger now speaks of impending judgment. The Tree of Hope, the symbol of America’s resurgence … is dead,” he explained.
“The keepers of the Tree of Hope did everything they could to save the withering tree. They even changed the soil in which it grew. But no matter what they did, the tree continued to wither away and die,” said Cahn.
“Finally, in the spring of this year, the tree planted in the place of the fallen sycamore of Ground Zero, the symbol of a rising America, was uprooted. … The seventh harbinger is no more.”
He had written in his book a prophetic word concerning America’s Erez Tree, the Tree of Hope, saying, “…but when a nation such as this places its hope in its own powers to save itself, then its hope is false. Its true hope is found only in returning to God. Without that, the Tree of Hope is a harbinger of the day when its strong cedars come crashing down to the earth.”
Only recently did Cahn discover that “The Harbinger’s” prophecy has come true. The news came to him from those who had recently walked the grounds of St. Paul’s Chapel in New York City at the corner of Ground Zero where the erez tree had been planted in place of the fallen sycamore.
Unlike the planting of the Tree of Hope, which was done publicly and followed by a publicized ceremony, the tree was uprooted with little notice given, out of the public eye. In fact it was only after several inquiries were made as to the trees disappearance, that WND found out what happened. The Tree of Hope, the symbol of a resurgent America, was uprooted in the spring of this year. The day after its uprooting, it was entirely destroyed.
“In the Bible,” said Cahn, “the felling of the cedar, or the destruction of the erez tree, is a particularly stark sign given to a nation nearing the day of its judgment. It is one of several continuing manifestations of what appears in ‘The Harbinger’ – coming true after the book’s release. What these continuing signs signify is that America’s progression to judgment is continuing – if not accelerating. Combine this with the fact that America in indeed continuing on a rapidly accelerating course of apostasy from God and moral collapse – and it comprises an ominous warning: America is approaching a day of judgment.”
He said his source regarding the destruction of the tree also told him there would not be another tree planted because of “The Harbinger.” He said that because of the book, people have been coming from all over the United States to see the tree.
WND reported earlier on the Old Testament prophecy, the tree that was struck down and the replacement tree in New York. The roots of the sycamore tree were preserved as a memorial.
“The Harbinger,” which is described as a wake-up call for Americans, deciphers the stunning connections between the cryptic biblical prophecy and current events.
Isaiah 9:10 states, “The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycomores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.” (King James Version)
The words were first uttered by leaders in ancient Israel in response to a limited strike by Assyria on the lands of Zebulun and Naphtali. The prophet makes clear it was a limited judgment by God against apostasy. The purpose was not to destroy the nation, but to awaken it, according to most commentaries....
