Increase of Federal Debt Higher than Reported
Could the federal government be deceiving the American public on the annual deficits? The Treasury Department reports a $587 billion deficit for the fiscal year, but actually, the national debt grew by $1.4 trillion.
The Washington Examiner points out that the government’s figures do not include federal lending for student loans, and borrowing from the Social Security fund. America’s debt to GDP ratio stands at 105%, up from 100% one year ago. . . and double what it was when George W. Bush took office 16 years ago. The only major nations now exceeding the United States in debt spending are Portugal, Italy, Greece, and Japan.

Only Two Lives Lost in Earthquake in New Zealand
In the providence of God, the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that hit New Zealand Sunday produced significant property damage, but only two lives were lost. It was not nearly as serious as the Christchurch earthquake of 2011 that killed 180 people and destroyed 10,000 homes. Prime Minister John Key estimates that damage this time will cost the country hundreds of millions of dollars.
New Zealand approved of homosexual marriage by parliamentary vote in 2013.
“‘Do you not fear Me?’ says the Lord. ‘Will you not tremble at My presence, who have placed the sand as the bound of the sea, by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass beyond it?’ But this people has a defiant and rebellious heart; They have revolted and departed. They do not say in their heart, ‘Let us now fear the Lord our God, who gives rain, both the former and the latter, in its season.’” (Jeremiah 5:22-24)
