–New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo
WASHINGTON – For those who have read the No. 1 bestselling Christian book of 2012 or viewed the No. 1 faith movie of the year, the words of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy’s devastation had special meaning.
It was a message all-too-familiar from U.S., state and city leaders in the wake of the 9/11 attack: “We will rebuild. We will come back stronger.”
The words mimicked – sometimes with precision – those of ancient Israel in Isaiah 9:10: “The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycamores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.”
And that’s the pattern that has been revealed in Jonathan Cahn’s bestseller “The Harbinger” and a movie based on the same message called “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment.”
“What makes it worse is this is already the reconstruction site, right?” Cuomo told Brian Williams on “NBC Nightly News.” “This is one of the largest reconstructions that the country is doing at this time … [In] downtown Manhattan, we had the Hudson River came over the banks and was pouring in to the Ground Zero site … and this was all filled with water. … It’s a new reality for us and I think it’s one we’re going to have to deal with. Now, on this site.

Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger on Tuesday joined the opposition to heightened airport security procedures that critics have called invasive and intrusive.Sullenberger, who landed a crippled US Airways jet on the Hudson River last year, said the use of full-body pat-downs and advanced imaging scanners for airline personnel “just isn’t an efficient use of our resources.”
Federal transport authorities say the machines are both safe and a necessary security precaution, especially following recent airline terrorism attempts.ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOWHero Hudson Pilot Joins Resistance To Body Scanners 150709banner2Sullenberger argued that transport authorities should trust pilots and flight attendants because “we’re trusted partners” who are already “thoroughly screened.”“We’re among the most scrutinized professional groups in the country, even more than doctors,” Sullenberger said on CNN’s “American Morning.”
“It’s really not an efficient use of our resources to put us through this,” he added, suggesting that flight crews should be allowed to bypass much of the pre-boarding security screening that is required of passengers.
