"Vengeance is Mine, saith the Lord."
So I've been torn on the subject of "torture," particularly when innocent lives are at stake. I remember watching an episode of "24," where Jack Bauer had a man with critical information tied to a chair. This man was a hardened jihadi, time was running out, and Jack set up a video feed that showed the terrorist's family also tied to chairs - with guns to their heads. The man's child was among them.
He talked and millions of people were saved.
After he spilled the beans though, it was revealed that the wife had not been hurt at all, that her "execution" was a bluff, thereby preserving Jack's status with the audience as a Patriotic hero rather than as an amoral merc.
Was that "torture?" A similar scenario in the recently released report on Enhanced Interrogations says that it is, and that the technique was actually used on a detainee. I don't think that it was torture, nor do I think that the force-feeding of a hunger-striking Kahlid Sheik Mohammed via peanut butter enema was torture.
Having given it some thought and prayer, I have come to the decision that we as a People are better than that, that Christ wouldn't be very happy with us were we to use some of the techniques used by the CIA; techniques that broke down not just the victim, but even those who were implementing them.
We must also consider two other aspects:
1. If any of our soldiers, sailors, airmen, or Marines are captured by the enemy, we won't be able to justifiably complain about their treatment if the US condones true torture. As we found out after WWII, Korea, and Vietnam, our enemies don't always play by the rules. Stories about the torture of American prisoners by State actors, despite the fact that they were signatories to the Geneva Convention, are commonplace and well documented, so we can't guarantee how our prisoners are treated in the future either.
Non-state actors like ISIS and al-Qaeda will never conform to international law as it relates to the treatment of prisoners. Nevertheless, we must maintain the moral high ground or we forfeit our right to complain at all when our sons, and possibly daughters, are being held by a hostile force.
Army veteran Cpt. Terry Michael Hestilow talks about the horrific possibility of one of our pilots, possibly a female in today's Air Force, being taken captive by ISIS in this episode of The Truth Is Viral.
as they might be under Executive Order 13603?
That absolutely frightening scenario is laid out in the following episode of The Truth Is Viral by TTiV Publisher Bobby Powell and Pete Santilli, Publisher of the Guerrilla Media Network and brother Marine.
Further, the Obama administration has claimed the "legal" authority to kill any American citizen they choose, without any type of Congressional oversight or judicial review - without so much as a charge of wrongdoing in a court of law - far away from any battlefield. Even the ACLU has called Obama "Judge, jury, and executioner." Attorney General Eric Holder even claims that Obama has the authority to kill American citizens inside the United States, as documented in this episode of The Truth Is Viral:
Back to the subject of torture, I'd like to share an article I read this morning titled, "7 Things Christians Should Know About Torture," from "Cannon and Culture." I know nothing about this website, but this particular article is a good read and should help you understand more about the subject of torture as it relates to our behavior as Children of the Most High God.
Whether you, dear reader, are faithful to a Judeo-Christian belief or not, I think that nearly all Americans share an innate sense of fair play. Despite what ultra-liberal politicians would have us believe as they push the demonstrably false "Hands up, don't shoot" narrative in Ferguson Mo. and across the country, the end does not justify the means.
How we fight the battle - whatever that particular battle may be - will be taken into account on Judgment Day. I, for one, want to be able to tell my Judge that I protected the innocent, defended the weak, and fought with Honor.
God bless and Semper Fi,

My daughter is dead. My mother and wife both have terminal Stage-IV Colo-rectal and Liver cancer. It feels as though I am losing everyone I love, one at a time. In the past two years seven of my closest friends and family members have died from cancer or heart attacks. Ironically, and disconcertingly, seven is also the exact number of viewers who have written to tell me that after watching one of my shows, they were led to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
the promise that I made to my daughter, to bring your children to Salvation as I swore that I would? Will you take one of my loved ones for each soul I bring to your altar? Will you take my entire family to make up for the cowardice I showed when I didn't tell my little girl about You because I was afraid to push her away after having just gotten her into my life after a lifetime of searching for her?
All of this crap going on in our lives Father, the illness, the pain, it's almost too much...
What have I got to be thankful for?
A LOT, as it turns out.
I got an email the other day that asked me to take a few minutes before I went to sleep and thank God for the blessings He has bestowed upon me and my family. The email said that I shouldn't pray asking for anything; just count my blessings and give thanks for them. It took me about half an hour to recount them all.
As part of dealing with the nearly overwhelming trials our family is experiencing, I have started to attend caregiver and grief counseling at a local cancer support group. The theme for this past meeting was, suitably, to recount those things for which we are thankful. I thought I would share them with you.
May you all be blessed with traveling safety, valuable times with friends and loved ones, and may you remember the Source from Whom all blessings flow.
God bless & Semper Fi,
Bobby and DeLynn Powell
and the entire TTiV staff.

|Celebrating Our Anniversary At A Petoskey B&B 2013, Courtesy Jim Babbitt's Family|
I would like to thank all of The Truth Is Viral's subscribers for their loyalty over the past few years. I apologize that I have not been around much lately, but being with and caring for my wife DeLynn takes precedence over everything right now.
All attempts to treat her Stage IV Colorectal and Liver Cancer, including state-of-the-art chemotherapies and a few alternative treatments such as baking soda and molasses, have failed. Her most recent PET scan showed an increase in the number of tumors in both her liver and colon, as well as increased tumor size and metabolic activity.
|DeLynn Holds Our Grandson Conner For The 1st Time 1/14|
Her oncologist is continuing three less toxic chemotherapy drugs every other week in hopes of extending her life, but barring a miracle my beloved wife of 28 years will be going Home to Father soon.
We would both appreciate your prayers. Specifically, please ask that Father will completely cure her cancer, diabetes, and the excruciatingly painful diabetic neuropathy that had disabled her long before she was stricken with cancer.
|DeLynn @ The Garden Of The Gods in 1987|
(Look at the photo on the right. Isn't she beautiful?)
If a healing miracle is not God's will, surely He won't begrudge us the strength we, particularly I, will need to cope with her passing. Pray for that strength too, in Jesus' Holy Name, and I know that the Comforter will be with us in these dark days.
As far as producing The Truth Is Viral goes, I will continue to do what I can when I can. We are at war with the Devil himself, and we will ALL take casualties before this battle is over. When my beloved wife DeLynn goes Home to be, and wait for me, with Father, there will be two casualties: Her AND I. Her problems will be over. Mine will have just begun.
Again, all I ask is that you keep us both lifted up to Father in your prayers. Maybe you could put our names on the prayer list at your church to ask your fellow worshipers to mention us. The more people that pray for my wife, the better. I KNOW Father can work miracles, I've SEEN it, and so have TTiV viewers, in this video:
Our God, the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob, the Almighty and Great Physician, CAN heal my wife. If you just watched that video you saw for yourself how the swelling in her arm decreased as she read online prayers left for her. The only question is; "Will He?"
If God miraculously heals my wife, I promise at this moment that I will tirelessly share that healing miracle with the rest of the world as proof that our God Jehovah is indeed the "King of Kings" and "Lord of Lords." If saving her is not His will, I will praise Him for the 28 wonderful years that we have had together, the five beautiful children we made, and the privilege of having known true love; but truth be told, I'd much prefer another 28 years together on this Earth, so let's pray for that shall we?
Thank you, God bless and Semper Fi,

Reports are circulating around the internet that mandatory Ebola vaccines are being planned to force American citizens into unwittingly being injected with an RFID chip, which some believe will be the "Mark of the Beast" foretold in the Book of Revelation. These reports are absolutely false.
In this episode of The Truth Is Viral, Publisher Bobby Powell walks the viewer through a series of stories published by Nationalreport that are nothing but utter garbage, stories in which he has been intimately involved, and he tops his evidence off with an interview with the clerk at the Hanna Wyoming Town Hall.
The small mining town of Hanna was picked, apparently at random, by Nationalreport, and populated with fictitious characters who were being "forced to take an RFID chip" under the auspices of Obamacare in order to continue receiving welfare or maintain a job with the town. The town's residents are not very happy about the story published by Nationalreport.
|"Rev Michelle Hopkins" - False Prophet & Liar|
Hopkins edit is shown in its entirety in this episode; but the unedited Obama speech at Palais Des Beaux Arts in Brussels Belgium can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCxLTn6TNaA
Commenting in her own defense, Hopkins has said, "Well we know that's what Obama is thinking." That may be true, but that fact is that he did not say it, and to deceptively edit video to make it seem as though he had is just that: Deceptive.
There is no room in alternative media - Any media for that matter - for hoax websites, or self-proclaimed "Christians," who use fear porn and deception to sway their audience, or publish stories that they know to be untrue in order to generate clicks. Holy cow, isn't the truth terrifying enough?
You can't truly lead people to Christ with a lie either.

Owensboro resident Carol Roberts says that she has been targeted for victimization by her lender, and that all of her attempts to prove that the bank's sole document is a forgery - a document which reopened a case that had previously been dismissed because the bank failed to appear at several hearings - have been rebuffed by the judge.
|Sheriff Keith Cain|
Carol Roberts is all alone, she is scared, and she is stubborn. Disabled and living on a pittance of Social Security, she can not afford to hire a lawyer to help her navigate the complex machinations of the legal system. She has mounted a valiant defense on her own, but she really needs expert help.
Please watch this episode of TTIV and see if there is anything that you can do for Carol. If you are a para-legal or attorney licensed to practice in Kentucky then you are in particular need. Even if you can not help Carol yourself you may know someone who can; by simply sharing this video, it may land on the Facebook or Twitter feed of the person who will ultimately come to her aid.

"There are photographs of United States Senators meeting with terrorists that we won't run here," Bolling said. "We don't know who our friends are, we don't know who we're arming, we don't know who we're giving money to, we don't know who we're training... we should just stop."
The Truth Is Viral is not afraid to publish those photographs. You will see them in this episode as we pay homage to Eric Bolling, a truth-teller awash in a sea of MSM lies; the TTiV "Good Guy of the Week."
Imagine a devastating series of terrorist attacks on malls, schools, hotels, and hospitals in the midst of an Ebola outbreak in the US. Yes the idea is terrifying. And it is all too possible, so much so that the federal government has already begun to act on Presidential Executive Orders 13603 and 13295, forcing doctors in Texas to work on combating the Ebola virus.
The Department of Homeland Security is warning officers that there is a much greater threat posed by peaceful ranchers like Cliven Bundy than by ISIS terrorists and those they have called to wage individual jihad and "slaughter" Americans, particularly members of the military and their families, and other Westerners. They also send a message to federal agents in the hopes that it is not too late to wake them up to the truth.

Turkey won't fight ISIS unless ISIS is dumb enough to enter Turkey. The Turks have had tanks on a hill outside of the Syrian border city of Kobani for weeks, watching as a humanitarian crisis brewed, watching as Syrian Kurds were slaughtered. They even helped ISIS out a bit by striking Kurds on the Turkish side of the border. We can't count on Turkey.
Every military talking head that can get in front of a microphone and a camera is telling the American public that the fight against ISIS can not be won without "boots on the ground." This is a well known military fact, something which is apparently lost on the US Commander-in-Chief.
Or is it?
Last year Obama was stymied when he tried to get American troops into Syria by claiming the Syrian government had used chemical weapons on civilians, the same lie that he used against Libyan dictator Moammar Gadaffi a year earlier. But this time he failed. As determined by UN investigator Carla Del Ponte', Obama's "Red Line" was crossed not by Assad, but by the "moderate Syrian rebels" Obama and members of Congress had been supporting.
The beheadings of American journalists and other Westerners by ISIS terrorists have already inflamed the passions of the American public, with many calling for American troops to be inserted into the conflict. Imagine what will happen when an American pilot, possibly a woman, is shot down and subsequently beheaded by ISIS. The American public would demand that Obama send American troops into harm's way to destroy ISIS.
This scenario is not at all far-fetched. Not only has ISIS acquired shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles from a fleeing Iraqi army, they have also taken possession of more than 20,000 similar MANPAD platforms that were "liberated" from Gadaffi's armories as detailed in this episode of The Truth Is Viral: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAzqSzthnLk
US Ambassador Christopher Stephens was, in fact, running guns from al-Qaeda terrorists in Libya to ISIS through Turkey. That is why he was killed.

Cpt. Hestilow also talks about the deployment of US troops to West Africa, where the Ebola virus has killed upwards of 4,000 people, and the threat that the virus - and ISIS terrorists who have pledged to strike American soldiers and their families, "slaughtering them in their homes - pose to American citizens abroad and at home.
This episode concludes with an update on the health of the wife of TTiV Publisher/Editor-in-Chief Bobby Powell. DeLynn has received several get well cards in the mail and hundreds of comments and prayers on the TTiV Facebook page, and she wanted me to make sure to tell everyone how grateful she is for all of the prayers, good thoughts, and well wishes.
"Never give up, never surrender."
