Donald Trump just did the one thing that I did not expect him to do:
Recognize Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel
He promised to do that during his campaign, and he delivered on that promise. And, I’m not used to American Presidents doing that – especially, when it comes to Jerusalem.
The side-effect of this event, will be a heating up of conflict in the Middle East and an acceleration of The Last Days. I believe that this is a very big deal, and I suspect that you will agree, when you see the evidence that I see.

The Last Days Accelerate – Jerusalem
I was going to talk about something different today – the place where the Antichrist will come from – but a big surprise superseded my plans.
Trump officially forced the US government to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
And yes, the word ‘forced’ is the operative word. Pretty much everyone in the US government tried to keep him from doing this. The US government has ALWAYS been antagonistic to the recognition of Jerusalem. And, that antagonism goes way beyond just an appeasement of Arab feelings.
Washington D.C. – Enemy Of Jerusalem
The US Dept. of State and the CIA have always been anti-Semites. Always. From the very beginning. Furthermore, they have also been extremely pro-Arab since World War II, and now… well …’pro-Muslim’ hardly begins to describe the State Department.
The reason why the State Department and the CIA are so evil, lies with their corrupt foundations – especially the CIA, who was founded around a cadre of veteran Nazi intelligence officers. But, if you understand all that, you begin to see why and how the US has been operating in the Middle East.
The US government has never, EVER, voluntarily been a friend of Israel or even the Jews. Never. Yes, there are Jews in US government. Yes, there are even Zionists in US government. But, those are not examples. They are exceptions.
And yes, there are Jews who are anti-Semites. In fact, a Jewish friend of mine told me that the worst anti-Semites are Jewish. It is a strange thing to behold, but it’s also a reality. And, the neo-Nazis love to grab a hold of these Jewish anti-Semites and use their statements as proof of how awful the Jews are.
So, why has the US given so much to Israel?
Christian Support For Israel
Anti-Semites love to claim that Jews have been controlling American foreign policy, and that this is why the US supports Israel so much. They claim that support for Israel is proof of Jewish power.
So, why did Menachem Begin spend so much time with Christians, when he visited the US?
Well, you know the answer to that. The number one reason why a southern senator or a congressman from a predominantly Christian district would never, ever vote against Israel, was solely due to the goodness of the Christians that would vote against him/her if he/she did that.
The Christians were the ones to force the American government to help Israel. The tiny Jewish minority in America were openly divided in their support for Israel, and they still are. But, I’m sorry to say that Christian support for Israel is waning.
God Is A Zionist
But, God’s intentions do not wane, so let me make something clear:
God is a Zionist.
I am a Zionist.
And, I made that clear with this article:
If you can’t handle that, then I invite you to go somewhere else that won’t tell you truths that upset you so much. The truth will always upset you. It’s what the Truth does. But, there are some who cannot handle the truth, so they will need to find a different, less truthful, source of news and analysis.
You don’t need to agree with me.
You just need to have the courage to confront the reasons why you do not agree.
I have no time or energy for those who cannot handle the truth. We all have errors in our understanding of the truth, and that includes myself. But, I try very hard to never avoid confronting what may, or may not, be an error.
I freely admit to having been wrong in the past. Therefore, I am perfectly willing to admit that I am wrong about something/anything now. And, I am certain that I will be wrong on something in the future.
What I am not wrong about, and cannot be wrong about, is that the Bible is true, and the #1 source of truth. Anything that disagrees with the Bible, is wrong.
Okay, I’d better get back to the main point, before I take this article in the wrong direction.
Now, where was I…
Back To Trump
When I heard Trump, while he was campaigning, promise to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and move the US embassy there, I was skeptical. And, I spent years and years riding by the plot of land reserved for the US embassy in Jerusalem.
The failure to fill that plot of land in Talpiot, on Derech Hevron (Hebron Road), was and is a visible failure – a blot on the conscience of the American people. And, when Clinton, Bush and even Obama failed to live up to their promises, I expected Trump to do the same.
I was wrong.
And, I am so very, very glad to be wrong.
My hope is that I’m wrong about all of my skepticism about Trump. I certainly WANT to be wrong, but those who love the truth do not have the luxury of living a life of fantasy.
Two Big WHYs
The question now, is about why:
Why did it take almost a year for him to do this?
Why was he finally able to do it?
Most people do not realize that the President of the United States is a captive of his own administration. He might want to do this or that, but the bureaucrats that are the true rulers of America will resist, if they don’t like what he wants them to do.
I don’t want to get into a long, drawn-out discussion of how governments work. That is a big subject, and it’s a subject that can lead to nausea, or worse. And, I’m not joking as much as I would like.
The point is that Trump is not as free to fulfill his promises as you might think. There really are limits to what he can do, even if the US Congress is fully behind him on this. The US government has gotten too big to change quickly.
That’s why making a decision like this, is a very, very big deal. Yes, he could have announced it the day after his inauguration, but he would have failed to make it official. In fact, he might have damaged his ability to make it official, since that failure would have allowed bureaucrats to seize more power than they should.
Never, EVER, let a bureaucrat believe that he or she has power. That never ends well. Ever.
So, how did he get away with it?
The conditions were favorable.
That is such a common statement of fact, that it has almost become a trite phrase. But, it’s still the truth. And, it’s a part of the reason why I believe that the age that we are living in, The Last Days, is accelerating towards fulfillment.
Saudi Fear Of The Future
The first reason for why Trump could ‘get away with’ recognizing Jerusalem is the terror that the Sunni Arab governments feel about current conditions in their neighborhood. And yes, the operative word is ‘terror’.
Iran is the center of Shia Islam, and the Shiites have been fighting for self-determination and recognition since the Battle of Karbala, in AD 680 – as have the Alevis and Sufis. And, from a Saudi perspective, Iran is on the other side of a very narrow body of water, called the Persian Gulf – or, Arabian Gulf, if you are Arab. And, it wouldn’t take much for Iran to leap over this gulf and take over Saudi Arabia.
What is keeping Iran from doing this?
Well, Mecca is the heart of Islam, whether you are Sunni, Shiite, Alevi or Sufi. And, the House of Saud is the acknowledged ‘caretaker’ of Mecca and Medina. Openly attacking Saudi Arabia might even cause a revolution within Iran. But, quietly causing the fall of the House of Saud… now that, is a real possibility.
In fact, Iran appears to be actively working towards the overthrow of the King of Saudi Arabia. Iran has been infiltrating Shiite communities in Saudi Arabia and encouraging discontent. Iran has been encouraging minor kingdoms, like Qatar, to rebel against Saudi ‘influence’. And, Saudi allies, like Bahrain have been suffering rebellion from their Shiite-majority citizens.
And then, there’s something called the Shia Crescent. It acts as a ‘barrier’ to the north and northeast of the Arabs. And, when you add in Israel, the Arabs are cut off from the Mediterranean Sea.
“But wait,” you say, “what about Egypt and the Suez Canal?”
Well, getting to the Mediterranean via Egypt isn’t as easy as you think, and the Arabs of the Arabian Peninsula are actually afraid of Egypt. Yes, you heard that right. Fear.
Egypt is big, and it has a VERY big army. It could take over Saudi Arabia without much effort. And, Egypt has been something of a troublemaker in the region, in the recent past – which is why the Saudis gave lots of money to the Muslim Brotherhood for something like 70 years. And yes, you read that right.
The Saudis funded the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, for decades.
Remember that Saudi Arabia only has a population of 33 million. And, I doubt that anyone is really certain if that census is correct, and how much of that census is really Arab or Sunni. And, the Saudi military is one of the worst in the world. They have great equipment, but very little skill at using it.
I have joked in the past that tiny Taiwan could invade Saudi Arabia and take over, without too much trouble – assuming that other countries didn’t intervene.
And then, there are all the other little Sunni countries of the Middle East:
I hesitated to add Yemen, since it’s only about half Sunni. And, the Shiites of Yemen are rebelling against the Sunnis. And, the Shiites have direct help from Iran.
And, none of the countries in that list are dependable. Jordan is ruled by a Hashemite dynasty that was driven out of Arabia, by the Saudis. And, the Arabs have long memories. Very long.
Oh, and the Hashemites ruled Mecca from a little after Muhammad (eternal suffering be upon him) until they were thrown out by the House of Saud in 1924.
The bottom line is that Saudi Arabia has enemies that have grown in size, and what friends the Saudis have, have been bought with oil money. And, the Shiites of Saudi Arabia are sitting on top of those oil fields that generate this money, and those oil fields are beginning to run dry.
Officially, everything is fine, and there are no problems pumping as much oil as Saudi Arabia wants to pump. But, just as ‘officially’, the Saudis have been unable to increase production above 10 million barrels a day – officially. But, one thing that is clear, is that her oil exports have declined, since her people have been consuming a larger and larger portion of Saudi oil. And, the Saudis lie through their teeth, when releasing information about how much oil they have, how much they can produce and how much they do produce.
Unfortunately, for Saudi rulers, we have evidence that their oil is running out. And, they are doing everything that they can to make new friends, to keep Saudi royals from being murdered in their beds. And, that means starting wars in Syria and Iraq, and making friends with Israel.
The Saudis know that they can no longer support the Palestinians. They’ve been giving them tons and tons of money, but they need to stop doing that, since a strong Israel will help protect them from the Shiites.
That New City, Neom
Did you notice where this new high tech city, Neom, will be built in Saudi Arabia?
Now, they very carefully spoke of Jordan and Egypt, but you and I aren’t stupid. There’s only one country that can make Neom work, and that country is Israel. And, it is one of two main reasons why it is being built at the entrance to the Gulf of Eilat – aka, the Gulf of Aqaba.
Israel is the only country with the education and infrastructure that can make Neom work. It takes a tremendous level of education to be a high tech country, and Israel has that educational base. Egypt and Jordan do not.
What’s the second reason?
Neom is as far from Iran as it is possible to get. That’s my own analysis, and I haven’t heard anyone else mention this, but I’m willing to bet that this is a very big reason. If Saudi Arabia makes this their unofficial capital, Israel, Jordan and Egypt could help defend Neom, when (not if) the Saudis get invaded by Iran.
This is why the Saudis helped in the attempt to overthrow the Shia government of Syria and install a Sunni government. That attempt began long before the official 2011 start date of the current civil war. But, they failed. Badly.
In fact, all of those Saudi efforts at ‘self-defense’ have backfired. Both Iraq wars have weakened and destroyed Sunni power in Iraq. Sunni clans in Syria have been decimated. And, Turkey has now switched sides, and now supports the Shia and Russia – a rather big enemy of Saudi Arabia. And, Saudi Arabia’s only real protector, America, is beginning to falter. The Saudis are losing the war in Yemen and their ‘blockade’ of Qatar has failed.
So, as the Saudis run out of options, along comes Trump with his plan to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Furthermore, we’ve been hearing reports of ‘secret’ negotiations between Israel and Saudi Arabia. Israel has always been willing to negotiate, but Saudi Arabia had to be backed into a corner.
The Howls Of Outrage
All of that explains those ‘favorable conditions’ that paved the way for Trump’s announcement. They helped make it possible by removing the Saudi (and Sunni) objections. The US Dept. of State and the CIA undoubtedly had to be wrestled to the ground and punched a few times. But, I doubt that such rough handling would have been enough. I firmly believe that without Arab voices to back up their dissent, the spooks and the foreign service couldn’t stop Trump’s plan.
What follows will be howls of outrage. The screams. The yells. The chest-beating. They will all jump up and down in a frenzy of incoherent indignation. They will make speeches and wave pieces of paper. They will burn flags and go to the AllahuAck Bar. Death to America will blare from every Shiite mosque.
In short, all will be normal, except louder and more entertaining. Therefore, some of us will make popcorn.
So, let’s talk about the howlers and the not-so-howling howlers.
Unfortunately, Iran has had a ‘thing’ about Jerusalem. One of the first orders that Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini made after winning the revolution in Iran, was to start something called Jerusalem Day, which is the last Friday of Ramadan – where they burn Israeli flags and swear to destroy the US and Israel. When they created their ‘special forces’ division, they called it, Jerusalem Force.
Iran believes that it is their holy duty to destroy Israel and the United States. They believe that this is how they will bring back their 12th Imam, their Mahdi. And, they believe that it must happen soon.
Turkey Jumps In
And, let’s not forget Turkey. They were a key supporter for ISIS and the other rebels in Syria. Without Turkey, ISIS and the rebels could not have survived. In fact, the whole operation was run, supplied and directed from Turkey.
It wasn’t a completely Turkish operation. The money came from the Arabs. The weapons came from the US and NATO countries. But, most of the support went through Turkey.
Then the Kurds rose up, and that scared the Turks. Twenty percent of Turkey is Kurdish, and Turkey has been persecuting the Kurds since day one of Turkey’s existence. Israel has supported the Kurds for a very, very long time, and the US jumped in and boosted Kurdish power.
Worst of all, a coup attempt was staged by the Turkish military on July 15th of 2016, and Erdogan escaped being killed by minutes. That coup failed, and America was revealed to have been its backer. Some claim that this coup was a fake, but that doesn’t make sense from what we’ve seen. The evidence that this was a hoax is just not there.
In the aftermath of the coup, Erdogan decimated and dramatically weakened his army, air force and navy to get rid of any opposition. In fact, the Turkish military has been weakened so badly, that they could barely fight against the Kurds in Syria.
Turkey, under Erdogan, has also failed to join the European Union. They tried hard to make it possible, and the EU wanted to make it happen. But, Erdogan was too much for them. So, the EU was another failure for Erdogan.
On top of all that, Erdogan is on shaky ground. He was able to ram through a new constitution that essentially makes him president-for-life. But, there are lots of people that are deeply unhappy with him. So, he desperately needs something to distract the Turks from their troubles. And, it looks like that ‘distraction’ might be Jerusalem.
Egypt And Jordan
Egypt is not a friend of the Palestinians, so I doubt that this declaration will mean much for Egypt. They have their own problems, and they have truly gigantic difficulties. Even without the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD), Egypt is staring catastrophe in the face.
People don’t realize that malnutrition is a serious problem, even now, in Egypt. And, malnutrition – especially among children – was the key reason for why Mubarak was thrown out of power in 2011. They cite other reasons, but those reasons are merely symptoms of increasing hardship and the growing desperation of Egyptian parents. And, it’s only getting worse.
When the GERD starts filling with water, Egypt will be finished.
Jordan isn’t much better off, since she has a tiny population with 30% of it Palestinian. Israel was the only country to defend Jordan in 1970, but their King can’t say that too loudly. Or, the Hashemite dynasty will be murdered in their beds.
Palestinians, Syrians And The Lebanese
The Palestinians will be a real problem, and their antics over Jerusalem will capture Muslim attention around the world. They are the biggest troublemakers in the Middle East and were at the heart of attempted coups in Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait and Lebanon. They are the best educated of almost any Arab group in the region, and they use that education to cause trouble everywhere they go. And the Syrians have been partners with the Palestinian ’cause’ for close to 50 years.
It was Israel, in 1970, that stopped Syria from invading Jordan, when the Palestinians almost overthrew the Kingdom of Jordan. If Israel had not mobilized to stop Syria’s attack, the Middle East would have been truly horrifying, rather than just a mess.
The same Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) that tried to overthrow the Kingdom of Jordan, then went to Lebanon and attempted the same thing, with more horrifying results. Israel was eventually forced to invade Lebanon to kick out the PLO in 1982. I have friends who fought in Lebanon. A lot of friends. It was terrible.
Only morons would invite the most revolting and evil leader in the world, Yasser Dirtbag Arafat, to govern the West Bank. Unfortunately, Israel was led by morons, when it happened. I can hardly believe it, and I was there.
As a result of Israel’s efforts in Lebanon, the Shiites and Iran were able to create Hezbollah to expel Israel from southern Lebanon. Hezbollah was supplied through Syria, and Syria was (and still is) run by morons. If Syria and Lebanon had followed Egypt and Jordan in making peace with Israel, none of what is happening to it now, would be happening.
But, morons will be morons.
All The Rest
As for the rest, Europe is becoming Islamic, and the world teeters on the edge of civilizational collapse. The collapse of civilization is in our future, but Europe’s transformation is happening NOW. It is doubtful that Israel will get much acknowledgement from them, of Jerusalem’s status as the capital.
Will America be the only one with her embassy in Jerusalem?
I don’t know, and I’m not sure that it matters.
What Really Matters – Zechariah 12
What matters is that this verse is a lot closer to fulfillment:
1 The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.
2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.
3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
4 In that day, saith the Lord, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness.
– Zechariah 12:1-4
When I wrote my book, I had three choices for a name:
Ezekiel’s Fire (Ezekiel 39:6)
Isaiah’s Sun (Isaiah 30:26)
Zechariah’s Horses (Zechariah 12:4)
All three of those names and all three of those verses speak to the same moment in time. And, the howls of outrage over Trump’s declaration on Jerusalem are bringing this moment of time closer and closer. But, Trump will have nothing to do with that ‘outrage’.
All that I have written in this article, should tell you that everyone shouting in outrage, are just looking for an excuse to shout. But, it’s an excuse that will destroy everyone who tries to pick it up.
Satan’s minions are destroying themselves with this ‘burdensome stone’, and it is a joy to see. It is also a part of God’s plan for these Last Days, and Jerusalem will lure these minions to gather together and fulfill the prophecy written across four chapters, Ezekiel 36, Ezekiel 37, Ezekiel 38, and Ezekiel 39.
All four of those chapters speak about the time in which we live. Chapter 36 is the most general. Chapter 37 is more specific. And, chapters 38 and 39 speak directly to the events that will finally bring Israel into salvation, by faith in, and relationship with, Jesus Christ – their only true Lord and Savior.
That day is coming, and it is the core of the book that I wrote, Ezekiel’s Fire. It’s free, and it might just save your life.
Are you going to be ready for this?
Read my book, Ezekiel’s Fire.
It’s free, and it may just save your life.

THIS WEEK’S RESEARCH
My research sources are pretty wide ranging, and their number keep growing. So, instead of listing all of my sources, let me list the ones that deserve special mention:
A big thank you to all who sent me articles. I appreciate all of it.
IF YOU READ NOTHING ELSE…
Yup, more than just special, these links appear to be the most important of all. Seriously, start with these.
And yes, these are pretty serious.
Jennifer sent this in, and it’s a beautiful song. I like it.
It’s inspiration is Revelation 22:20.
It emphasizes the joy at the thought of The Return of Jesus, but does not spend time on what I believe to be the pain that I’ve always seen in that statement “Even so”.
To write about the horrors contained in Revelation, horrors that MUST COME before Jesus Returns, horrors that John believes might befall people that he knows and loves… John still said:
ναι ερχου κυριε ιησου
Yeah, come Lord Jesus.
Of course, it is also the life of a Christian. Pain and suffering, mixed with joy and hope. And, there are too many Christians who do not embrace the suffering, so they do not have the joy.
John knew great suffering. He is my namesake, and I shudder to think of myself going through what he went through, although he DID shudder to think about what you and I will be going through.
But, with all the pain and suffering that lies before us… and for the joy that we shall have …even so come, Lord Jesus. I tremble at the thought of what we will go through between now and then, but I also trust God that He will walk with us through these great tribulations.
Thank you, Jennifer, for that beautiful song.
NOTE: I am putting this here, as well as in the Corruption/Military Coup section. I believe that this discussion provides useful insight into ‘intelligence analysis’. And, you need that.
I like Ret. Col. Roy Potter. He’s a good guy, and he’s enthusiastic. The only question is… whether he is a bit too enthusiastic. Since I don’t know his sources, I can’t say whether his speculations are valid.
For instance, he claims that the North Koreans are a CIA front. Sorry, but no. There’s no way that this is possible. The CIA might have dealings with the Norks, but North Korea cannot be a front for the CIA. I’m not even sure if they could be called an ‘asset’.
BTW, when he mentions MEU, that’s short for ‘Marine Expeditionary Unit’. And, he’s basically claiming that the military is engaged in a kind of ‘shadow war’, with maneuvers intended to convince the CIA that they mean business.
I don’t know how much of this is true. Roy Potter clearly believes what he’s hearing. Just remember that cynicism is vital when evaluating information. Israel learned that the hard way, in 1973.
Israel’s civilian intelligence service saw what was coming and sounded the alarm, but military intelligence claimed otherwise. This failure in intelligence gathering almost cost Israel her existence.
Here’s an excellent quote on the dangers of ‘intelligence failure’:
The Israeli intelligence failure of 1973 is thus a classic example of how intelligence fails when the policy and intelligence communities build a feedback loop that reinforces their prejudices and blinds them to changes in the threat environment. In the more than 40 years since the disaster, a wealth of material has emerged on how it happened and why.
That comes from this excellent analysis of the ’73 war:
That link also increases my respect for Jordan and King Hussein. I have always liked and respected Jordan, and this article increases that. If the current king is half the man that his father was, Jordan will hopefully do well. But, I worry.
But, back to the subject.
The point is that ‘feedback loop’. It happens a lot. And, you see classic examples of this on conspiracy websites. Shared conceptual bias married to an echo chamber of everyone quoting each other… leads to deep and profound error.
Please learn from the mistakes of 1973. Take a deeply cynical view of any and all ‘intelligence’. And, be extra careful about what you repeat. It might sound good. There’s a part of you that wants it to be true. Your ‘worldview’ tells you that it IS true…
…but, are you really sure?
If you are wrong, you will be contributing to that ‘echo chamber’ of error. And, you do NOT want to do that, if you care about your brothers and sisters in Christ.
Unless we’re talking about the Bible, ‘intelligence sources’ are prone to extreme error. And, when it comes to the Bible, we often allow our personal desires get in the way of that vital source of ‘intelligence’. So, please be extremely careful with the information that you are willing to trust, and never trust a source completely.
And yes, that means me. Analyze what I write and say, with cynicism. Be critical. Think it through. And, if you disagree with my analysis, let me know – with sound reasoning to back it up. I value input, including disagreement – as long as it is backed up with sound analysis.
Remember that iron sharpens iron. (Proverbs 27:17)
Okay, so this video provides an opportunity to practice ‘critical analysis’. But, it also provides a data point.
There really MIGHT be military maneuvers in preparation for some kind of intervention by the military, in Washington DC. I came to the conclusion that the military would be forced to ‘take over’ the US government, on my own. History provides us with too many examples of this, and the average American currently has enough respect for the US military, to allow it to succeed.
Again, treat this video with some skepticism, but also as a tiny piece of data that might be leading to what I have feared: a military coup of some kind. (And yes, a coup can be quite small.)
A big thanks to Karen J, for sharing that video.
A professor of economics goes through the evidence and finds that yes… $21 trillion has gone missing.
TWENTY ONE TRILLION DOLLARS!!!
Here’s the first paragraph of the writeup:
Michigan State University economics professor Mark Skidmore made an astounding discovery about the finances and budgets of the U.S. federal government earlier this year. He and a team of graduate students discovered $21 trillion missing in the federal budget going back to 1998. Dr. Skidmore, who specializes in public finance, explains, “We know from official government sources that indicate $21 trillion is, in some way, unaccounted for. Furthermore, if we come back to the Constitution, all spending needs to be authorized by Congress. It looks to me, and I think I can conclude with a high degree of certainty, there is money flowing in, as well as out, that is unaccounted for. . . . That’s the one thing we know from these documents, that there is $21 trillion in unaccounted funds.”
And then… when it became clear that the information had ‘gotten out’, they disabled the links to the information.
And no, I will not believe that there is a good reason for this. This money was stolen. It’s as simple as that.
North Korea is a truly vile and evil regime. It is shocking to listen to how evil they are.
How can we stand idly by, while they enslave, torture and murder their own people?
How do we free the suffering North Koreans, without killing more than we would save?
This is such a heartbreaking situation.
Okay, they are claiming that this is a warning to the US and South Korea, but I am cynical. I agree that there is a warning to both countries, but it might also be a warning to North Korea.
Remember that China is most worried about destabilization. There are lots of Chinese Koreans in Northeast China, and they could start causing trouble if war breaks out. The same goes for refugees fleeing across the border.
The thing that most people from ‘developed’ countries do not understand, is that China is not held together very tightly. And, provinces on China’s frontiers will break away from Beijing, if given too much of a chance.
The irony, is that China helped create the problem in North Korea, and I think that they should be forced to fix that problem.
Don’t assume that this forecasts a conflict, but it does mean that the people in northeast China are unsettled over the prospect of war.
Here’s an interesting phrase for you:
It comes from the research of Tim Kuran, who coined the phrase and published a book on the subject. Here is a quote from the Wikipedia page that describes his idea:
According to the theory, in articulating preferences, individuals frequently tailor their choices to what appears socially acceptable. In other words, they convey preferences that differ from what they genuinely want. Kuran calls the resulting misrepresentation “preference falsification”. In his 1995 book, Private Truths, Public Lies, he argues that the phenomenon is ubiquitous and that it has huge social and political consequences. These consequences all hinge on interdependencies between individual decisions as to what preference to convey publicly. A person who hides his discontent about a fashion, policy, or political regime makes it harder for others to express discontent.
One socially significant consequence of preference falsification is widespread public support for social options that would be rejected decisively in a vote taken by secret ballot. Privately unpopular policies may be retained indefinitely as people reproduce conformist social pressures through individual acts of preference falsification.
In falsifying preferences, people hide the knowledge on which it rests. In the process, they distort, corrupt, and impoverish the knowledge in the public domain. They make it harder for others to become informed about the drawbacks of existing arrangements and the merits of their alternatives. Another consequence of preference falsification is thus widespread ignorance about the advantages of change. Over long periods, preference falsification can dampen a community’s capacity to want change by bringing about intellectual narrowness and ossification.
The first of these consequences is driven by people’s need for social approval, the second by their reliance on each other for information.
Kuran has applied these observations to a range of contexts. He has used the theory developed in Private Truths, Public Lies to explain why major political revolutions catch us by surprise, how ethnic tensions can feed on themselves, why India’s caste system has been a powerful social force for millennia, and why minor risks sometimes generate mass hysteria.
Here’s the Wikipedia link where I picked up the above:
This actually explains the fear that people have of ‘sticking out their necks’ and saying what they believe to be true. And, it’s the reason why I get into trouble everywhere that I go.
I try to tell the truth, everywhere that I go. I have learned to be a little more polite about it, than when I was younger. But, I still manage to be a ‘trouble magnet’.
But, I will not compromise on what I believe to be true. And, we all need to do this, or we will suffer an epidemic of falsehood – which is EXACTLY what we are suffering.
Unfortunately, the voice behind ‘Black Pigeon Speaks’ is not a Christian, so he does not understand that a lack of faith in God is the problem. And, he does not understand that our civilization will be destroyed because of that.
The dirtbags are going even MORE dirty. YouTube is making it impossible for any kind of that aren’t about kittens, puppies or supporting socialism.
THIS is all that you need to know from this article:
At about $750 a month, transportation ranks just after housing as the largest expense for the average American household, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. For married couples with children, it makes up 17.3% of their monthly expenditures, while housing comprises 31.8%.
That, my friends, is a catastrophe in the making. When oil becomes less and less affordable, the cost of that commute will become impossible. Or, in a repeat of the 2007/’08 crash, people will be forced to choose between getting to work and paying their mortgage.
And, we already know what they’ll choose.
America, you are NOT ready for what is coming. And, all it will take, to reveal the problem, is a bond market collapse.
Once the ability to borrow money collapses, the fracking companies will no longer be able to sustain their operations. And, when the fracking frackers fall, the price of oil will go up and up. Then, the economy will collapse, forcing the price of oil down.
When the economy recovers a bit, the price of oil will go up, crashing the economy. But, each boom-crash cycle will be worse and worse. And, there will be less and less wealth in our economies. And, the process will kill billions of people.
To add a little more perspective to this issue, that $750/month transportation cost is worth $9000/year. And THAT is more than the per capita GDP of Russia. And, Russia is #68 out of 187 countries in per capita GDP.
Here’s the source:
Does that give you an idea of how crazy America’s fuel consumption problem is?
And, part of the problem that America has, is that her cities are built for cars. You can’t get a job, if you don’t have a car. This means that America will need to radically change, if she is going to survive what is coming.
Here in Taiwan, I don’t need a car. In fact, I haven’t had a car for almost eight years.
Again, everyone, get ready for the most catastrophic wars that the world has ever seen. Get ready for starvation for those parts of the world that depend on cheap oil to harvest their food. Geat ready for wholesale destruction.
Why are we allowing such a horrifying development?
Have we lost our minds?
The answer, of course, is yes. Immorality ALWAYS breeds insanity. ALWAYS. And so, with our modern-everything, we are going obliterate our societies and even our civilization.
We have become barbarians.
One of the benefits of being married to a native-Chinese speaker is that you get news from China that hasn’t been filtered through an American ‘mindset’.
This article isn’t important, by itself. What is important, are the rumors that are flying around Beijing about why this ‘crackdown’ persists in such a strong and vigorous way. This is unusual for the Chinese, since they normally use a gradual approach, so that the effects of eliminating a whole class of workers, isn’t so pronounced.
The news that I am getting, via my ‘inside source’ (The Missus), is that there has been a breakdown in private delivery services in Beijing. Packages aren’t getting to their destinations in time – or at all. And, people are beginning to speculate that this ‘crackdown’ is about a belief by the government that unrest is coming in China.
For those of you who do not know, China – for thousands of years – has always been terrified of unrest. The Chinese are an emotional society, and Chinese society tends to fly apart when something bad happens. I know that this isn’t how Westerners think of China, but you aren’t living here. And, you aren’t married to someone who was born and raised in the Republic of China – and who has a strong and vigorous education on the history of China.
Is this rather un-Chinese insistence that illegal ‘migrant workers’ be evicted… is it a sign that China is about to suffer an economic collapse?
Or, is this a sign that China is worried about the Korean Chinese or Chinese Koreans causing trouble, when/if war breaks out with the Norks?
Is this the result of Xi Jingping attempting to clean out some of the resistance to his rule within the Communist Party?
Has some overzealous Beijing bureaucrat gone just a bit overboard?
Did someone push the wrong button?
Or, is this just a rumor, and nothing but?
Inquiring minds want to know.
I like this guy. He’s not arrogant. He doesn’t claim to know everything. He doesn’t beat you over the head with what he believes to be true, if you don’t agree. And, I bet that he’s a better teacher than I am.
What I am impressed with is that this is a man that is a part of a tiny minority of Christians who know that we are going through the Tribulation, and have not turned against Israel.
That is an incredibly rare thing. Incredibly rare. So, I can add another name to my tiny list of exceptional people.
Also, near the end of this video, I loved his point about ‘the pattern’. It really DOES seem that the fulfillment of prophecy happens more and more quickly as we get nearer and nearer to fulfillment. I hadn’t thought of that, so I am doubly blessed.
Well done, John Haller. And, well done Tony and the team at A Minute To Midnite. (And yes, you guys are on that list of exceptional people.)
ARTICLES OF NOTE
These articles have a more individual importance. They cross categories, and are often in their own category. And, I think that these should be your first stop in your reading.
This made international news, and the location is one of the universities that Mrs. Little and I taught a Bible-English class. It was kind of an exchange deal. We would teach you English, for free – as long as you didn’t mind hearing about Jesus.
If you were cool with that, your English would improve. I’m not the best teacher in the world, but all of our students really improved in their skill with English.
And now, there’s a rainbow!
I tend to pop into Imgur for those idle moments when I need a laugh, or to look and a basket of puppies. But, this makes me sad.
We are sending our kids to foreign countries to kill others, and to be killed for money. I wish that I could tell you differently. I want to be a patriotic American that believes that his country always does the right thing and is a beacon of hope and freedom to a suffering world.
But, when was the last time that America fought a good and just war?
If you need help, here’s General Smedley Butler, the best general that America has ever had:
“I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.”
― Smedley D. Butler, War is a Racket: The Antiwar Classic by America’s Most Decorated Soldier
And, if you want to talk to me about World War II, I’ll tell you about the American businessmen and financiers that started it. That funded Hitler.
These very same men tried to get General Butler to be their Hitler, but he was a good man. So, he ‘turned them in’. And, Roosevelt did nothing.
So, we send our precious boys (and now girls) off to kill others and be killed.
And, it breaks my heart.
This headline caught my attention, and then I saw who was speaking.
Senator. Closet homosexual. Chicken hawk. Warmonger. Disgusting. Revolting. Makes my skin crawl. Close buddy of corrupt criminal, John McCain – who is worse.
The problem is that the government uses people like Graham to prepare people for decisions that will be made later. They use these things as ‘trial balloons’, to see how the public reacts to these possibilities. This could also be a warning to North Korea, since we knot that the Norks watch American TV. All of that and more.
It doesn’t mean that Lindsey is less of a dirtbag. It just means that he’s a useful dirtbag.
If you live in South Korea, consider your options, should America decide to attack North Korea. And, for those of you in the US, you need to consider whether the Norks have an EMP weapon ready to attack the US.
Unfortunately, Orban is right. This is EXACTLY what Soros is doing.
After all, it’s what he did to the US.
I watched this to try and understand why so many are against Jared Kushner and whether he is a good asset to his father-in-law, Donald Trump. I also wanted to see what Jared was exposing, in terms of his relationship with Donald Trump, and how much Donald Trump relies on Jared.
The body language expert, Mandy Bombard, would say that Kushner was constantly in ‘portrayal’ and that he was very uncomfortable being in front of a lot of people and cameras. He is socially awkward, and he knows it.
He is painfully introverted. He is ‘results oriented’ and not ‘people oriented’. He believes that achieving important objectives is more important than how people ‘feel’. He wants to get things done, and preserving egos isn’t a part of that. He also doesn’t consider himself to be the ‘smartest guy in the room’. And, it is easy for him to defer to the strengths and abilities of others, and he does not feel lessened by this deference.
He also has strong ideas about what is appropriate and what isn’t, and he wasn’t going to budge on any of those things. A weaker person would have been influenced by Saban’s gentle pushiness.
Jared appears to be a very quiet guy with strong character, which means that he will not do well in politics. Ever.
He has all the charisma of a rock. Useful. Trustworthy. But, he won’t leading hordes of people off of a nearby cliff. And, I think that Donald Trump sees how dependable he is, and is using him skillfully. And, I think that Jared understands that he’s a tool, and is comfortable with that – within the boundaries of his personal rules.
I also find it ironic that he is NOT talking about the one thing that will ‘solve’ the conflict in the Middle East. And, he is smart enough to never say that ‘one thing’.
What is that One Thing?
Money. Being sent to groups of people who are diabolical, for the purposes of giving them the ability to be even more diabolical. He knows that the flow of money needs to stop, but he also knows that he can never talk about that ‘flow of money’.
Very few people understand that the key to peace is controlling where the money goes. If you give money to those who are violent, there will be violence. If you give money to those who are peaceful, there will be peace. There are nuances to this, but this has ALWAYS been how peace and war created.
If you wish for war, find those who want to start one, and give them money.
If you wish for peace, find the peaceful and give THEM money.
For a very, very long time, the Arabs have been fueling the conflict in the Middle East with lots and lots of money, sent to as many violent men as possible. And, it looks like the flow of money to these ‘violent men’ is about to be turned off – or, at least, slowed dramatically.
I like that. And, I like Jared Kushner. I have low expectations for Jared, and he seems to be exceeding them.
It’s always good to see someone in a position of responsibility who isn’t an arrogant [EXPLETIVE DELETED].
There is nothing like having the promoters of evil, meet with organizations that are evil, in attempt to keep you from seeing what is good and what is true.
China is a kind of prototype for the Antichrist system. And, companies like Apple and Google are helping China become a better and better prototype. In software terms, I would liken China to an Alpha release.
It kinda works, but what parts that DO work, only work under certain conditions. When they reach the Beta Release ‘stage’, this control system will work almost everywhere, and the only thing keeping it from doing that, are the ‘bugs’ in the system.
To put it another way, we are still on the path towards the Beast System, but we are still years away from our destination.
Here is more on that meeting of the evil about how to control the flow of information.
I admire the ability of these people to ignore how vile and evil they are. They appear to have no idea how hypocritical they are.
I keep wondering how they sleep at night. But, experience tells me that they sleep fine.
It’s the global control grid. Brought to you by China.
Eventually, I’m going to get it into my rather thick skull that the average person is evil. I don’t like thinking like this, but the evidence is pretty overwhelming. The idea of putting cameras in bedrooms and bathrooms so that you can take pornographic videos of your guests… and that it’s becoming an “oh, that’s a thing now”…
Of course, maybe this is an ‘American Thing’. However, we find plenty of evil people in Taiwan.
Think of it like this:
When the Lord Returns, He will destroy all the evil people, and that will leave very few human beings left on Earth.
And, He will be completely justified in doing so.
Here’s the one paragraph that you need from this article:
That said, she is also worried about workplace repercussions that could limit the opportunities women have in their careers. “I have already heard the rumblings of a backlash: ‘This is why you shouldn’t hire women,’” she wrote. “Actually, this is why you should.”
Unfortunately, one of the worries that people had about ‘women in the workplace’, was the inevitability of ‘sexual harassment’ and ‘adultery’. Of course, there are few of us still alive that remember these questions.
Unfortunately, morality wasn’t the biggest ‘question’ about the issue of women in the workplace. We weren’t as moral as we should have been, and we are even less moral now. Over the last century, we have lost so much morality, we no longer understand how immoral we are.
If you understood how unrighteous we were, you would know why God must destroy America.
Hmmmm… now HERE is an interesting question:
Can Patriot missiles actually intercept incoming missiles?
The ‘toilet paper of record’, the NYT, claims that they can’t. And, since Scud missiles are wildly inaccurate, it’s hard to know. Whatever happened, it appears that American ‘missile defense’ has a big question mark over it.
This means that war with the Norks is sooner, rather than later.
There is a graph in this one that might induce nausea. In fact, it’s so bad, this article might need to be in the ‘moron’ section. It’s about the growth of mind-numbing, soul-destroying bureaucracy versus doctors. It was bad enough in the 1970s, when I was growing up…
I am so glad that I’m in Taiwan. Having to deal with that much bureaucracy would probably kill me. Of course, we DO have stupid government, here in Taiwan. But, not as bad as THAT GRAPH!
What American needs to do is collapse and rebuild, from the basement, up. In fact, the old foundation needs to be broken apart and rebuilt. And, we need to make sure that the Freemason ‘cornerstone’ isn’t laid along with the new foundation.
Why is it that the Freemasons are able to convince local and federal governments to lay a cornerstone that dedicates each and every government building to Satan?
In fact, I recently discovered that a doctor that I go to, every week has the ‘Grand Lodge’ for Taiwan, a couple blocks away. It’s a tiny thing, which shows you that Freemasonry hasn’t really caught on here, so I’m relieved. But, now that I know where it is, I always pray that God would destroy it, whenever I’m nearby, at least once a week.
Satanists are so stupid. They really are.
I can’t believe that YouTube is demonetizing ‘China Uncensored’. But, they are.
It’s hard to say, but I’m betting that it has something to do with YouTube bowing to pressure from China. Oh, and the fact that YouTube is run by dirtbags who want to brainwash you.
There are two problems with this piece.
First, it assumes that this is an issue with THIS generation, instead of observing that young people are stupid. And yes, I was young and stupid, too. Now that I’m older and somewhat less stupid…
Second, it ignores the morons that are teaching these kids to be stupid. Professors are some of the dumbest people on the planet. Seriously. I have rarely found a professor worth listening to for more than five minutes. And, I have eight years of university and have spent countless hours having to tolerate Dr. This or Dr. That, pontificating on his or her latest and greatest idea.
I once helped a young woman with her Ph.D. thesis. And, she got her Ph.D. She’s a wonderful young woman, and I was glad to help. But, it is absurdly easy to get a Ph.D. if you have the ability to write. And, the ability to write does not make you worthy of being called Dr. This or Dr. That.
One of my favorite professors in grad school, thought that all the other professors were morons.
And, when I look at the picture in this article… I see another poor victim of Professor Moron.
I’m sorry, but this is wrong. Making Muslims a ‘protected people’ is outrageous. Churches everywhere are vandalized in obscene ways, but it’s never called a ‘hate crime’.
This kind of thing is destroying society, and is part of what led to revolution in Britain. Draconian laws destroy public order and lead to revolt.
Now, having said that, this guy looks like a moron.
Maybe we should send him to Sweden instead?
Lots of morons there.
Unfortunately, doing that might lead to him being in the government of the European Union. The highest concentration of morons on the planet is Brussels.
The highest concentration of criminals is Washington.
‘Chris from Poland’ shared this link in his comment, and I find this both to be ironic, amusing and infuriating – all at the same time.
That’s right. YouTube censors the Polish government.
Can you get more arrogant AND stupid?
No, no, I don’t want to know.
Wait… SCIENTISTS CAN LIE?
Shock! Horror! Consternation! Wrinkled foreheads!
People need to stop putting scientists on a pedestal. They are no better than anyone else, and they tend to lie, unless they know that you are looking over their shoulder – just like real people.
Hmmmm… so someone actually went looking for the records. Someone in the LAPD wants this dealt with.
Okay, this is stupid. Even if you believe in that stupid idea called ‘evolution’. It’s bad science, but even a ‘good’ evolutionist isn’t going to buy into the idea of ‘aliens’.
It is statistically impossible. Completely. Utterly.
This would make a GREAT Christmas gift, if that’s your thing. Or, birthday gift.
I watched the movie, and it’s excellent. Others of you have, as well.
CORRUPTION AND THE MILITARY TAKEOVER TO SOLVE IT
What is going on with Hillary and the corruption being revealed in Washington, is so huge… that I doubt that it is possible to emphasize enough, the seriousness of this situation. I believe that these revelations will eventually take down the Republic and replace the current government with one ruled by the generals. And please, do not discount this. Corruption is ALWAYS how republics and kingdoms fall – and how the military takes over.
Remember the generals that surround Trump.
This was not an accident.
However, please take note that public pressure for a military takeover never happens until people suffer economic and financial stress. So, don’t expect this ‘takeover’ to happen until the economy turns sharply downward. The military will not want to see a repeat of the French Revolution.
I find the words ‘internecine’ and ‘Deep State’ to be highly attractive. In fact, I want more of this. If there is enough of it, there won’t be a military takeover.
YOU. DO. NOT. WANT. A. MILITARY. TAKEOVER.
Good ol’ John ‘The Rat’ Podesta. Now, some rats are cute. He isn’t one of those rats. He’s a foul piece of garbage who is probably a child rapist and murderer.
All the best Satanists are.
There is a reason for this. When you are corrupt to the core… when you’ve sold your conscience for a pocket full of mumbles… you’re going to look for alcohol to numb the pain. I’ve seen this with journalists in Jerusalem, and I’m betting that it’s worse in Washington. And, not just journalists.
When you sell your soul, there’s a price to pay.
This is the kind of insane corruption that causes revolutions and military takeovers. And, who is at the center of this?
Those of you who have been following George Webb’s work, will know how evil McCabe is. He is a bought and paid for minion of Hillary Clinton. McCabe is one of the most evil men on the planet, and I think that what we know is just the tip of the iceberg.
The bottom line is that the entire leadership of the FBI needs to be removed. And, good field agents need to be promoted to take over from their corrupt bosses.
It won’t happen, so the military will do it.
How utterly disgusting.
This really is a ‘must watch video’. I believe that you will be glad that you did – especially, when you realize that John Cardillo has long experience as a policeman for the NYPD. John really knows police work from the ground up.
Here’s a view of the same issue, from Stefan Molyneux. I think that the Cadillo presentation has more importance, but Molyneux also has a good viewpoint – a much more ‘big picture’ view.
And, the headline does not and cannot say it all. Of the top 20 richest counties in America, NINE OF THEM are in the Washington D.C. area.
Almost half of the top 20. And, all of the top five.
THAT is one of the surest signs of corruption. Years ago, when I heard that Washington had cranes and buildings going up everywhere… I knew that it was a sign of the end of America. And, the signs deepen faster and further.
So, not only does the city need to be destroyed, but also the suburbs that supply the city.
My hope is that God will spare the innocent.
This article appears elsewhere as “Why the Deep State is at War with Trump”.
And, even a ‘Martian’ could figure this out.
It’s a coup d’etat.
So, my ‘military takeover’ scenario is, in actuality, a ‘counter-coup’.
The FBI has become an arm of the Democrat Reparty. Worse, it has become an arm of Hillary Clinton. Comey really has been almost the dirtiest cop.
Who was/is the dirtiest?
Andrew McCabe, and the dirtbag is still there.
This is the FBI, out of control.
This really is mind-blowing.
His is it possible that this level of corruption is allowed?
What is it going to take to fix it?
Does military intelligence need to go in and root out the corruption?
You can’t use the CIA, since THEY are in bed with the FBI. And, they’re both in bed with Hillary.
It is beyond sick and twisted.
Okay, this is the second placement of this link. Again, I like Ret. Col. Roy Potter. He appears to be honest and genuine. And, he offers information and analysis that points to one of my predictions that I have been dreading:
A military takeover.
If it happens… when it happens …it will be our own fault. And, it won’t end well. Yes, something needs to be done to stop the out-of-control corruption, and there isn’t anyone else left to do the job. But militaries, no matter how well-meaining, tend to stay in power and abuse that power.
Yes, a military junta often relinquishes control, but the country is never the same afterwards.
Please be careful about what you ask for. You might get it.
Do you need another bit of evidence proving that Andrew McCabe is in the running for the dirtiest cop in American history?
Well, here’s one… if your stomach can take it.
TRUTH ABOUT TRUMP
Right now, Trump is a distraction. Some call him savior. Others call him devil. And YOU are probably being distracted by all this.
Please don’t be. Trump is just a guy who wanted political power, and got it. He likes winning, and he won. He still likes winning, and he will try to keep doing so. He’s also smart, which means that he will probably succeed – at least, some of the time. But, he isn’t going to save America. He isn’t going to chart a new course. He isn’t going to make America great again. And, it’s becoming more and more clear that he has been lying to us.
The best that he will do, is not be as bad as the alternative. But, I’m afraid that he will be AS BAD as the alternative. He certainly looks like he’s selling Israel out.
Please get this into your head:
AMERICA IS LOST.
The sooner that you get this point, the better.
Those of you living outside of America already see this, and YOUR concern is the fallout from America’s fall. The only thing that I can point to, for you… is the Bible and Ezekiel’s Fire.
I just LOVE the fact that Trump is so good at getting the left to start frothing at the mouth. Say what you will about ‘The Donald’, but he has serious entertainment value. And, you can see that he’s enjoying himself.
I like that.
When people ask me how I prepare for the classes that Mrs. Little and I teach, I tell people that I don’t. I just do my best to have fun. If you learn anything, that’s great. If you don’t, but had fun, that’s fine.
But, our track record isn’t too bad, so I’ll do my best to have as much fun as possible. And, it looks like Mr. Trump is doing the same.
Okay, remember that Lionel is a lawyer. He was a prosecutor, AND he knows his stuff.
Mueller can’t do ANYTHING. And, THEY HAVE NOTHING ON TRUMP. N-O-T-H-I-N-G-!!!!
But, the mental midgets are ecstatic over all this. They have their ‘momentous news’ faces on. These moronic morons think that they are ‘cornering’ Trump.
They aren’t. At All.
Actually, Trump really DOES ‘own’ the foolish reporter.
Hillary lied and lied and lied to the FBI, and she got away with it. But, Flynn lied over a ‘nothing burger’ and gets his life destroyed.
Does this sound logical?
This ‘takedown’ of Flynn and the attempted ‘takedown’ of Trump, leaves Clinton wide open for attack – that is… if incompetent scumbag Jeff Sessions wasn’t in charge.
Either Jeff Sessions is so stupid and so incompetent, that he couldn’t think his way out of a paper bag, or he’s corrupt. Or both. Either way, Jeff Sessions makes me sick.
And yes, I’m feeling nausea, right now. The truly evil are being protected, and that makes me want to throw up. It really does.
May God grant these vile and evil men and women repentance. I would welcome it and praise them for it. And, that would mean revealing ALL of the dirt that they know and confessing to their dirty deeds. Anything less than that is NOT repentance.
And, if they will not repent, then I want God to destroy them utterly. The land cries out for justice, and The Judge is coming.
THE ORGANIZED RAPE OF CHILDREN
I hope that you will forgive me for wanting these people dead. With a thorough trial, first to establish the facts… then, a swift execution.
God help us all.
Is it possible that the child-rape networks are about to be rolled up?
The thought that it’s about to happen is incredible. Even that it COULD happen.
This category has expanded significantly. It’s as if the flood gates on this issue have opened. It’s an indication of the seriousness of the situation. And, it’s very serious, indeed.
Ethiopia is an extremely corrupt government and has made worthless promises that they will carefully fill the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam. I believe that they will fill that dam as fast as possible, drying up the Nile, just as chapter 19 of Isaiah said that they would.
It is said that they will begin filling the dam, next year.
This is going to be traumatic for Egypt – just as Isaiah said.
Sorry Egypt, but you don’t get a choice. You had a chance to work out something, but you refused… so now, you pay.
And, I’m so sorry that you were so stupid.
‘Joel the Filipino’ shared this in the comment section, via a ZeroHedge link.
Now THIS is a very big first. I’ve been reporting on this dam for a couple of years, but this is the first time that I’ve seen ZeroHedge refer to an article about this dam.
Yes, the article is important. But, the fact that the subject matter is getting more and more international attention is even MORE important.
The Earth, my friends, is getting ready to shake.
This paragraph will cost the lives of millions of Egyptians:
According to sources familiar with the technical negotiations, Ethiopia wants to complete filling the dam, which has a capacity of about 74 billion cubic meters of water, in a maximum of 3 years, while Egypt is demanding that the filling should be carried out from 7 to 9 years so as not to significantly affect the share of Nile water.
Ethiopia wants to fill that dam in LESS than three years?
May God have mercy on those who are going to suffer and die. This will be so bad.
The events that are descending upon us, will try our souls. How many of us survive those trials will depend upon your location and your preparations.
Please prepare for the worst period of time in human history. America will be ground zero, followed by Europe. Other places will be devastated, but those two areas will be hit the worst – at least, as I see it now.
No place will be safe, but there are some places that will be safer than others.
Please, prepare for the worst.
Unfortunately, he’s right. It takes an intuitive grasp of math that none of us have – or, at least very few. And, this article demonstrates that even the best of us get hammered by events that hindsight tells us… well …that they ‘should’ have been ‘obvious’.
One day, if you survive, you’ll look back and kick yourself for not preparing like you should have. You will tell yourself that ‘you should have known’. But, before you get too hard on yourself, remember the key to surviving the difficult days that are coming:
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
– Luke 21:36
If you take that verse to heart, God will direct you. Of course, it requires a LOT of humility. It requires the truest kind of submission to God – that what HE wants is more important than even your survival.
When you get to the point that it doesn’t matter if you survive, only that you serve God in the way that He wishes for you to serve, then your chances of suvival go way up – assuming that the word ‘chance’ applies. Submitting yourself to the perfect will of God in humility, praying that you would be worthy to escape… and faithfully watching…
Well, that’s the recipe for ‘success’ in preparation. Unfortunately, Chris Martenson doesn’t really get that, but he DOES ‘get’ math. So, read this, if you can.
And, if Sir Isaac Newton can get ‘financially destroyed’ by investing in the South Sea Company, you can too. Nobody is immune. Nobody.
Okay, you won’t need to ‘rebuild the world from scratch’. When the Millennium begins, they’ll need to do this, but not you.
Having said that, this is a useful exercise in understanding how complex our world is, and why you need to prepare for a catastrophic decline in complexity. You might not know it, but your life is inexpensive and fantastically efficient.
That will change.
Are you ready for that?
ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL COLLAPSE
We’ve been talking about the collapse of the economy and financial system for a very long time, and every day that collapse is delayed… well …the collapse just gets worse and worse. Eventually, it will be an explosion that will devastate the world and lead to chaos, confusion, death, destruction and war. Lots and lots of war.
In fact, it has begun already.
By the time that you see it, it will be too late to do anything about it.
Now THIS is an interesting indicator of the top in an economy:
Who knew that those ‘portable houses’ could be such an indicator?
Well, you heard it here.
When the economy cracks, is hard to say. In one sense, it has already cracked. But, with all the central banks pumping money into the global system… well …we’ll see.
Okay, I’m full of questions today, and some of you think that I’m full of something else. Anyway, I’m wondering what will happen, when China stops artificially boosting her GDP by all these construction projects.
And, when China’s economy fails… who’s next?
The same goes for healthcare in Taiwan. It’s a fraction of the price, here. In fact, I would not be able to do what I am doing, if I were living in the US, with the medical challenges that I have.
Somewhere, sometime, the insanity needs to stop.
The only question is when.
These are at least worth a chuckle. And, it might save you from going nuts.
I had a bit of a laugh at these, and I hope that you will too.
Warning… what has been seen, cannot be unseen.
Especially, for those of you living in climates where this temperature actually happens. In fact, you Celcius people will see this more often.
The things that people ponder…
World War II played out in comments. Some bad language. But, humorous in a rather dark way.
Ridiculous guy humor. Sorry, but I’m a ridiculous guy…
Now THIS is what I like. He was hungry. He made it happen. I like this guy.
And, he came back, later in the day, and gave the restaurant $5.00. Nice.
Sorry, but this caused me to go awwwwwww….
You KNOW that you want one.
And, it did. An impressive feat.
If you’ve had ’em, you know what this means. The moment boredom turns to joy unceasing.
Wait. Cats? Personal space?
It’s NOT a cat thing.
MORONS AND MORE MORONS… WE’RE SURROUNDED BY MORONS
I’m sorry, but I can’t stand it anymore. There are just too many morons, so it needs its own category. And, I do this to maintain my own sanity. They’re driving me THAT crazy.
Now, here’s my rule for who appears in this section:
A person or organization who is EVIL ANNNND STUPID.
People who are just stupid, deserve our compassion. My heart goes out to them, because their life is going to be painful until they stop being stupid.
But, those who are evil?
Well, I want them to repent. I really do. I do NOT want ANYONE who is evil to suffer an eternity in Hell. But, if they refuse to repent, I want them destroyed.
May the wrath of God be upon all who refuse to repent. May the blessings of God be upon those who turn from their wicked ways and acknowledge God.
Congress has denied access to RT?
Can you believe these morons?
Look Britain, we love you. We love your accent. We love your… your… accent. And, we love… Okay, we pretty much just love your accent.
Oh, and some of your humor.
Okay, maybe we shouldn’t love your humor TOO much. Or, your humour.
Just please, do not become more stupid than America, okay?
Yes, I know that it’s too late to say that, so consider this to be a plea to stop the insanity. Or, at least… slow it down a little.
This is stupid, that I laughed. Well, morons will moron, so this is expected.
This is for those of you who have to look at morons every day… where you are surrounded by them …choking your life and making you miserable.
And… there are times when YOU are the moron. (I’ve been there.)
Does ANYONE watch that moronic show?
My head started hurting, just trying to watch clips presented here. The stupidity is beyond comprehension. So much so, that I hardly know what to say, other than to say that you should never turn on your television. Ever.
This is how governments destroy their own countries. When you give governments access, you also give criminals access. And, this moron doesn’t care about that.
I am so sick of morons in government. I really am.
They’re bringing THAT sanctimonious moron on to replace Charlie Rose?
She’s one of the most disgusting and revolting reporters that I know of. And, she’s pro-Palestinian to the core. PBS and moronism. They’re synonymous.
Okay, the coarse and immoral SNL deserve a ‘backlash’, BUT NOT FOR THIS REASON!!!
Sorry, but jokes are ALWAYS offensive to SOMEONE. IT’S WHAT JOKES DO.
Will we get a ‘backlash’ if we make fun of the French? The Germans?
Will we be unable to make jokes at all?
Not only is this an age of evil and immorality, but it will he a humorless age of evil and immorality.
If I am no longer able to have a sense of humor, I’ll die. In fact, when the Antichrist comes, I’ll probably be the first to volunteer to have my head cut off.
MOH-ran… I see a MOH-ran!
Self-protection is racist. That’s according to a moron who wants to force shopkeepers to remove their bullet-proof barriers. Which means, of course, that these shops will close and move areas that are safer.
I’m wondering about how much edumacation it takes to be this stupid. To me, it looks like it takes time and effort to get to THIS level of insanity.
Then, after writing the above, I made the mistake of watching the video embedded in this piece. That woman is so stupid, just listening to her knocked points off of my IQ.
Is stupidity contagious?
There’s certainly a lot of it going around.
I’m sorry, but I couldn’t even read this. It’s just so stupid.
The New York Times is so full of idiots, that I don’t know how they can continue publishing their paper. These guys are morons of the worst kind.
So what if Flynn said that Russian Sanctions would be ripped up?
They must think that we’re all idiots.
And, maybe they’re right. Although, you should feel insulted that they treat you like an idiot.
Sorry, NYT, but we think that you are a corrupt news organization. None of us with any brains are going to pay for your foolish articles.
Nausea warning! Nausea warning!
Or, you could face-palm yourself so hard, that you might need medical attention.
The bottom line?
The ‘Anglican Church’ is no longer Christian – if it ever was. I’m not The Judge, but there’s too much evidence that Anglicanism is just a tiny step away from Catholicism.
We are seeing the fulfillment of the words of Jesus, right now. And, it seems that Islam is leading the way. What insanity!
What is wrong with North America and Europe?
Have they – and we – gone insane?
I got halfway through this, and the actions of this high schools were so nauseating, that I couldn’t finish. And, the Muslim student who complained didn’t actually want the accused student to be punished.
Kudos for the Muslim kid.
GOG AND MAGOG
I’ve been writing about the coming of Gog and Magog for a while. You can find a lot of that, here:
And, the articles below point to that coming. I really, Really, REALLY hope that you’ll be ready for this. Please read Ezekiel’s Fire to make sure. (And yes, it’s free.)
Wait. Turkey and Iran have been friends… LIKE THAT?
Hmmm… I find that interesting and more evidence of a growing Gog and Magog alliance.
Chris from Poland left this and a similar article in the comment section. And, he points out that Sudan shares in the ‘Chushite’ Language Group. He was the one to point it out to me, and there is indeed a sizeable pocket of Chushite speakers in Sudan.
So, when Russia does a deal with Sudan, it needs to be monitored.
Oh, and the picture of the ‘Landing Craft’. The Zubr is REALLY impressive. How good it would operate in combat is yet to be determined…
This is the second article submitted by Chris. And, here is the operative sentence from this article:
Sudan can become one of key intermediaries in further meaningful interaction between Russia and Islamic world.
So far, Russia’s ‘meaningful interaction’ has been with Shia Muslims, Libya and Central Asia. There seem to be no Sunni Arabs who are interested in Russia’s help. And, when I went to look at the Google map of Sudan…
…I realized that a port on the Red Sea, in Sudan would also be right across from Mecca – the ‘Holy City’ of Islam. I find that to be interesting. And, that would also provide an invasion route from the south, into Israel and Jordan.
Another interesting data point.
As a PostScript, Chris adds this. I’m putting this in here, because it lends itself more to the Gog and Magog section – especially, since it brings more credibility to Sudan’s inclusion with the Gog and Magog alliance. We’ll see how this works out.
Um… er …ooops!
Talk about putting ol’ Erdogan in a bad light…
…with a bit of nuclear ‘accident’ mixed in.
Okay, THIS will push Erdogan even more quickly and forcefully into an alliance with Iran and the rest of Gog and Magog. Hyperinflation tends to cause revolutions, and everyone will see that Erdogan is at fault.
And, that means Ezekiel’s Fire.
Iran has been using its newfound wealth – courtesy of Barack Obama – to threaten Saudi Arabia, by giving weapons and manpower to the rebels in Yemen and giving support to the government of Syria. It takes money to do this, and the morons in Washington gave it to ’em.
Okay, I was assuming that the Russian Constitution would keep Putin from running again, or – at the least – offer some resistance to the idea.
I guess not.
It doesn’t matter much, other than making us a bit more convinced that he’s the Gog of Magog. Hopefully, you’ll remember that the references to Gog in Ezekiel speak of a ‘him’.
We could even be wrong about Russia being the Land of Magog. I like the Russians, so I hope that my thoughts on this are incorrect. Having said that, I pretty much like everybody except Turks, thugs and political leaders.
Chris from Poland shared this, and I cannot stress enough what a big deal this is. And, I didn’t even finish reading Chris’s comment before reading this article. It’s very, very short.
In fact, I’ll quote it here:
On December 6, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), Hezbollah and their allies establsihed a full control over the highway between the Syrian cities of al-Bukamal and Deir Ezzor. Thus, the SAA and Iranian-backed forces just officially established a major land route between Lebanon and Iran.
The United States and Israel had been fearing for a long time that such a route may be used by Iran to provide supplies to Hezbollah in Lebanon and to the SAA in Syria. Now, this road is the reality.
When I read that, I thought to myself that there was a connection between the Sunni Arabs changing their attitude towards Israel, Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem, and this.
Sure enough, Chris beat me to it:
(note: SouthFront is a Russian site – do not expect anything pro-Israel here).
Trump’s decision about Jerusalem – I do hope my government will follow; Jerusalem IS the capital of Israel. It also means that, from now on, the countries like Jordan, Saudi Arabia, which, for any reasons, are showing some will to cooperate with Israel (whatever their real intentions are) will be probably painted as “traitors” by the rest of Islamic world, with consequences. And this opens the way to the multitude of the events described in Isaiah, Ezekiel etc. My feeling is that today God’s plans are set in motion, full speed. We, the Christians, know what to expect, we have been warned.
I love the fact that there are so many of you that could do my job, if I wasn’t doing it. Well done, Chris!
All of this means that the events of the Last Days are accelerating. How fast, only time will tell.
There has been a sickening rise in anti-Semitism among those who call themselves christian. And yes, I used a lower case ‘c’ on purpose. I have little hope that I can turn these minions of Satan from their evil path. Salvation and repentance are the work of God, although I will do my best to serve God in that work.
I’m more interested in keeping my brothers and sisters from being tainted by this Satanic hatred of the Jews. If you are caught by this hatred, you will suffer. If you are convinced to oppose Israel, you will suffer. If you are turned away from supporting God’s work in the Land of Israel, you will suffer.
So, think of this category as my attempt to help you avoid the traps of Satan, that he has laid in your path. God is at work among the Jewish people and with the Jewish people. He is at work in the Land of Israel, turning the Jewish people from their idols and towards the true God of Abraham.
My goal is that you would be greatly blessed. But, you cannot be blessed, if you oppose God.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
– Psalm 122:6
May you prosper. And, may you understand how important the Land of Israel is, in these Last Days.
As I read this, it’s Tuesday evening, my time, and this makes me so mad that I’m afraid that I used inappropriate language as I was reading this. Here is yet another ‘administration’, caving in to the damned and double-damned Arabs. And yes, that is a Biblical use of ‘damned’. Although, I used rather unBiblical words, as I was reading this.
Spineless America caves in to the vile and evil.
If you watched the video about Saudi Curriculum in American schools, then you need to spend time, here. This is the organization that Dr. Charles Jacobs created.
There is a reason for why hatred for Israel is growing by leaps and bounds. This organization and the website are all about part of the reason.
The bigger reason, that it cannot address is the growing immorality among Christians. Our churches have corrupted themselves, and a sign of that corruption is anti-Semitism.
As I write this, it is looking like the news on Monday, where Trump seemed like he wasn’t going to do what he promised, was wrong. As I write this, Wednesday night Taipei Time, there is no official announcement, so I am choosing to write report on this, as it happens.
I just find it interesting that Turkey is talking about going to war, over US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. And, it sounds A LOT like preparation for Gog and Magog.
And THAT my friends, is a very unsettling thing to contemplate.
And, the fact that Erdogan is calling for an emergency summit over the US recognizing Jerusalem… well …it’s amazing.
The US matters that much?
JERUSALEM matters that much?
In fact, Erdogan’s spokesman said this:
“Jerusalem is our honour, Jerusalem is our common cause, Jerusalem is our red line,” he added, urging the Trump administration to “return from this grave mistake immediately”.
Um… I’m thinking that Erdogan needs a war. He must feel like he needs start a war somewhere to reinforce his image at home. And, this is the only thing that he has.
Having said that, it’s the kind of war that Muslims get enthusiastic about. There’s nothing like a ‘good’ Jihad, to get everybody rushing out to the AllahuAck Bar.
I feel sorry for Muslims. They’re morons, and they just can’t help it.
Now, a few hours after I write this, or even a few minutes, we might get an official announcement. Then… the fireworks will start.
And, I forgot to get the popcorn.
Wow. I now have to eat my words. I called Trump’s administration ‘spineless’, and I was wrong. And yes, I’m keeping my error up there as a testament to my mistake.
Now, notice that I was reading that article on Tuesday.
Guess what folks, this was a classic ‘head fake’.
Now, some of you might not know what a ‘head fake’ is so let me speak to you from my days on the highschool basketball team. A ‘head fake’ is a basketball term for someone who wants to get his opponent to make a wrong move, so that he can make a move more freely. All that you do is move your head up quickly, as if you are going to jump and take a shot at the baskeball goal. The head fake causes your opponent to jump to try and block your shot, leaving you with the opportunity to pass the ball to someone else, make a different kind of shot or even get him to foul you.
So, The Donald gave us a ‘head fake’, so opponents to this move weren’t ready for it.
Again, well done Mr. President. God bless you, sir!
Here is the summary of the article:
‘Jerusalem IS Israel’s capital’: I will move our embassy there AND make peace with the Palestinians says Trump as he defies the world’s warning he will set the Middle East on fire with dramatic change of policy
President Trump announced he’s recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city, and starting the process of moving the U.S. embassy there from Tel Aviv
‘Today we finally acknowledge the obvious, that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital. This is nothing more or less than a recognition of reality,’ he said
‘Many presidents have said they want to do something, and they didn’t do it; whether it’s through courage or they change their mind I can’t tell you,’ he said during a cabinet meeting before his world-shaking speech
Palestinians said it would be ‘a kiss of death to the two-state solution’ and Trump is ‘declaring war in the Middle East’
The terror group Hamas said Trump has opened ‘the gates of hell’
Pope Francis said he was ‘profoundly concerned’ and appealed that ‘everyone respects the status quo of the city’
China, which has good ties with Israel and the Palestinians, expressed concerns over ‘possible aggravation of regional tensions’
Iran’s supreme leader said Trump’s new stance represented ‘incompetence and failure’; Russia expressed concern about a ‘possible deterioration’ there
Moving the embassy to Jerusalem will unfold over ‘years,’ a senior White House official said; ‘It won’t be immediate, it won’t be months, it won’t be quick’
I had been so tired of disappointment after disappointment, but Trump came through with a formal acknowledgment. Excellent. Excellent.
And, the howls of the minions of Satan are music to my ears.
Pope Franky doesn’t like the deal?
Did the poor widdle fella get his panties in a bunch?
It sounds like it. Here’s me, hoping that he has a heart attack, forcing him to resign.
Annnnnnd, the morons come out of the woodwork, screaming and yelling about this. And, this article anticipates and responds to the morons with excellent arguments.
Now, I have more ways to rattle cages and make the morons howl with rage.
I’m lovin’ it.
Hmmm… the most awful people on the planet hate this idea.
It must be good. Really good.
Howls of outrage! Incoherent outrage! Fists waved at the air! People running around with hair on fire!
It’s a scene of… a scene of… pathetic stupidity. And, anything that makes the evil look stupid… I’m ready to watch.
And yes, it was a nice pin. The Turks are not just morons, but they’re genocidal morons.
When did they stop saying this?
This is quite a litany of utter stupidity. I mean, it basically says ‘moron’ all over the page.
So, Arab governments were critical, but they didn’t do more than send ‘strongly worded letters’.
The Western Media?
They go nuts.
Of course, it’s not like they ever STOPPED being nuts.
You will see me quote a paragraph from this article, and the entire article is worth reading. It is an excellent analysis of Israel’s intelligence failures in both 1973 and the war in Lebanon in 1982. There is a little room for disagreement over a few of his observations, but it really is excellent analysis.
And, it also conforms with what I know, myself.
Israelis are human, like anyone else. And, they make mistakes. Lots of them. The good thing is that they tend to be honest about their mistakes, and do their best to learn from them. They don’t do this perfectly, but I don’t know of anyone who does it better.
Oh, and please. Tell anyone who talks about Mossad this or Mossad THAT, to calm down and take it easy. Mossad is not a very big organization. I am amused by people who like to paint Israelis as superhuman. Anyone who tries to do that, demonstrates their ignorance of Israel.
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
