On September 17th, 2001, a Supermoon rose for the evening.
On that same day, 6 full days following the 9-11 terrorist attacks in New York City and DC, Wall Street had finally re-opened after having been closed since the fateful downing of the World Trade Center. That particular day ended the longest US stock market shut down since the great depression.
The Dow Jones lost a record 684.81 points, its worst one-day drop in history. Today, the stock market lost nearly 100 points.
The following day, September the 18th, 2001, saw the first terrifying mailing of anthrax letters from Trenton New Jersey. ABC News, CBS News, NBC News, New York Post, National Enquirer, Senators Tom Daschle and Patrick Leahy were all targets of the anthrax mailing.
There were five deaths and 17 other infections.
Is there a spiritual significance in tonight's Supermoon lunar phenomenon?
Some believe that several Bible verses speak to the significance of the various Moon and star phases. In Luke chapter 21 verse 25, the Bible states:
"And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring" (26) Men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken"
Indeed, there are 34 verses dedicated to the Moon in the Old and New Testaments.
Many, in fact, do believe there is a connection between the Supermoons and the frequent Blood Moons occurring in 2014, however is there truly a quantifiable connection?
Maybe, the odd thing for 2014 is that that there were three actual Supermoons this Summer in addition to the two Blood Moons for 2014 and then two more Blood Moons which will occur in 2015, all viewable in both Israel and the US.
In this case, each of the Blood Moons occur on major Jewish Holidays, the previous Super Moon had one major connected Jewish holiday, called "Tisha B' av" which is a time of mourning in Judaism over the destruction of the Temple and the exile of the Jews.
According to IBF:
"The supermoon that will occur on Sept. 9, will fall on the day the moon enters its closest orbit to Earth.
Supermoons can appear as much as 30 percent brighter and 14 percent larger than regular full moons, notes NASA.
While people like to attach theories or conspiracies surrounding astronomical events, the supermoon is harmless.
There was a belief that a supermoon would increase the chance of a major earthquake, but that has been debunked several times. "
However, the fact that this particular Supermoon precedes 9/11 by only several days has caused many to wonder if there could be a real connection.

Joan Rivers "banned" US First Lady Michelle Obama, pop star Adele, and US talk show host Chelsea Handler from attending her funeral just weeks before her sudden death.
The showbiz veteran died on Thursday last week, days after suffering a cardiac arrest during a routine throat procedure.
It has now emerged Rivers had previously drawn up a wish-list of famous faces who should stay away.
In one of her final interviews, conducted just weeks before her death, she told The Sunday Times Magazine that those she wanted kept away from her funeral included First Lady Michelle Obama, who she branded "a tranny", Adele for being "fat", and Handler, who she dubbed "drunk" and a "whore".
She also discussed how she knew death would soon be "inevitable" because of her advancing years and revealed she had been trying to help her daughter Melissa to come to terms with her mother's mortality.

A spokesman for the family of murdered journalist Steven Sotloff claimed Monday night that Sotloff was sold to the terrorist group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) by Syria’s “so-called moderate rebels.”
Sotloff family spokesman Barak Barfi, a foreign policy research fellow at the New American Foundation, made the startling claim in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
“We believe that these so-called moderate rebels that people want our administration to support, one of them sold him probably for something between $25,000 and $50,000 to ISIS and that was the reason he was captured,” Barfi said.

Asked how he knows this, Barfi referred to sources he and the Sotloff family have “on the ground.”
Barfi then turned his ire toward the Obama administration for making “a number of inaccurate statements.”
“They’ve said that the families have been consistently and regularly informed. That is not true,” he claimed. “I speak now only from the Sotloff family. I can’t speak for the other families. They said that these hostages were moved frequently. We know that for most of the beginning of part of this year they were stationary. We know that the intelligence community and the White House are enmeshed in a larger game of bureaucratic infighting and [murdered journalist] Jim [Foley] and Steve are pawns in that game and that’s not fair.”
Barfi even threatened to reveal more damning information about the Obama administration’s handling of the situation if the administration didn’t stop leaking details of Sotloff’s captivity to the press.
“If there continues to be leaks, the Sotloff family will have to speak out to set the record straight,” he said.

Remember the verifiably insane efforts of the Obama Regime to blame the 9/11 attacks on a Youtube video that hardly anyone knew about?
Now their ridiculous efforts at assigning blame for the attacks make much more sense after reading the following account.
The Obama regime has been culpable in the toppling of regime after regime in the Mideast-- only to then be dominated by Shariah insistent jihadists.
The same Jihadists, by the way, who would eventually comprise ISIS.....
The U.S. special mission in Benghazi and the nearby CIA annex were utilized in part to coordinate arms shipments to the jihadist rebels fighting the Syrian regime, with Ambassador Christopher Stevens playing a central role, documents an explosive new book released today.
The activities, which included a separate, unprecedented multi-million-dollar weapons collection effort from Libyan militias who did not want to give up their weapons, may have prompted the Sept. 11, 2012, attack, charges the new book.
The findings and more are revealed in the new work by radio host and WND reporter Aaron Klein, “The REAL Benghazi Story: What the White House and Hillary Don’t Want You to Know.”
Klein asserts the arms-to-rebels scheme that ran through Benghazi “might amount to the Fast and Furious of the Middle East, the Iran-Contra of the Obama administration.”
A key issue is that until the end of April 2013, the White House had repeatedly denied it was involved in helping to arm the Syrian rebels.
However, “The REAL Benghazi Story” cites evidence of arms transfers throughout the summer of 2012, escalating with a major shipment from Libya to Turkey just days prior to the Sept. 11 attack.
The book finds members of the 17th of February Martyrs Brigade, a militia linked to the Ansar al-Sharia terrorist organization, may have been used as cut outs to aid in the weapons transfers to Syrian rebels.
Perplexingly, armed members of the Martyrs Brigade were hired by the State Department to provide internal “security” at the U.S. special mission.
Stevens an ‘arms dealer’?
According to information cited by Klein, Stevens served less as a diplomat and more as an arms dealer and intelligence coordinator for assistance to the so-called Arab Spring, with particular emphasis on the Syrian rebels.
As was widely reported, Stevens originally arrived in Libya during the revolution aboard a Greek cargo ship carrying equipment and vehicles. His original task in Libya was to serve as the main interlocutor between the Obama administration and the rebels based in Benghazi. Stevens never abandoned that role, even after becoming ambassador, according to Klein.
Indeed, the New York Times reported in December 2012 that Stevens himself facilitated an application to the State Department for the sale of weapons filed by one Marc Turi, whom the Times’ describes as an “American arms merchant who had sought to provide weapons to Libya.”
The Times reported Turi’s first application was rejected in March 2011 but was approved two months later after he stated “only that he planned to ship arms worth more than $200 million to Qatar.” Qatar was Turkey’s partner in aiding the Syrian rebels.
Klein notes the Times did not question why a U.S. ambassador would help facilitate government applications for arms dealers. Nor did the Times bother to investigate the possible connection of those activities to the Benghazi attack.
Continued Klein: “After all, it doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes to divine a possible link to the Benghazi assaults amid reports of Stevens supporting a weapons dealer’s application while American intelligence officers hiding in ‘secret locations’ were helping Arab governments shop for weapons to be sent to Mideast rebels, including some of the same groups linked to the September 11, 2012 attacks.”
Klein points out Stevens held his final meeting with a diplomat from Turkey, which was one of the main backers of the Syrian rebels.
Arms to jihadists
Klein’s statement about U.S. intelligence officers aiding weapons shipments from “secret locations” is a reference to the larger arms-to-rebels pipeline that is thoroughly documented in the book.
The story began prior to the establishment of the U.S. mission in Benghazi, when the United States and NATO supported Arab airlifts of aid to the rebels who eventually toppled Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi.
The Obama administration’s “Arab Spring” adventures pivoted westward, reports Klein, when the CIA started helping Arab governments and Turkey obtain and ship weapons to the rebels fighting Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria.

After reading the article about Diane Sawyer being the last female anchor for broadcast network nightly news, article I thought to myself, “I watch female broadcasters all day on Fox News Network,” in some cases on hour-long programs with cutting-edge issues that you would never find on ABC, CBS or NBC.
I understand everyone doesn’t have satellite or cable TV, but those of us who do see intelligent females who tell the news like it is, not how the network dictates. They even interview individuals who oppose the Fox network. Now that’s what I call refreshing, or should I say, “that’s the way it is.”
