Chinese New Year and Horror in South Africa

Well, it’s that time of year again where the Chinese get to celebrate a new year, and I get dragged off to visit the in-laws. I hate traveling, but I like my in-laws. So, it’s always a time of mixed emotion.

It also means that I get my weekly articles out rather late.

The other thing that’s happening, is genocide in South Africa. It has been going on for a while, but the tempo is starting to increase. We should all be horrified by this and praying for our brothers and sisters who are about to suffer greatly.

Please remember that our time of suffering is coming.

Chinese New Year and Horror in South Africa

Chinese New Year and Horror in South Africa – The ShockCast

YouTube shortlink: https://youtu.be/xONC8vA-nnU

(And yes, I chose the bug-eyed look. I like it!)

Here is the MP3 version:

—————

It is the Year of the Dog, and everyone who is Chinese, knows what ‘year’ they were born under. For instance, Mrs. Little is a rooster, and I’ve been told that I’m a goat.

It kinda gives a bit more to the saying, “You old goat!”

The problem that I have with Chinese New Year, is having to travel. I HATE traveling. With a surprising amount of passion. Surprising, I should say, to everyone else but me.

Why do people feel the need to move about, from place to place?

I used to think of culture as fascinating, until I realized that everyone is distressingly the same, and that culture is just the packet of lies that we share with each other, to convince ourselves that we are better than we really are. Everyone thinks that their culture is the best, that they are in some way superior to someone else. There are times when that attitude is cute, but generally it’s just an invitation to mass murder and genocide. But, I don’t want to talk about that, quite yet.

The thing that I find interesting about Chinese New Year is that it is a lot like something else that you’ve probably read about. In fact, I’ll drop a few hints:

You must…

…do lots of cleaning before the holiday.

…observe in the spring.

…put red on the door posts and lintel.

…gather your family indoors and eat lamb.

…do all the above or a monster will kill you.

…observe the holiday for several days.

And, this celebration marks the beginning of the year.

If all of that reminds you of Passover, well done. And, if you are wondering if there’s a connection, I’m afraid that no one knows. In fact, we don’t actually know where this celebration of Chinese New Year comes from.

The reason for Chinese New Year was never written down by those who started it, and it began so long ago, that no one knows where it came from.

How long ago?

Thousands of years.

Hmmmm… thousands of years?

It would be highly ironic if China turned out to be a group of Israelis that got lost following Moses out into the desert. But, I’m afraid that this is a line of thought that is far too fanciful. But, when we walked into my brother-in-law’s apartment, in Chiayi, Thursday night, he proudly proclaimed that we could have lamb, if we wanted it.

Whatever the connection there might have been between Passover and Chinese New Year, that connection has long since died of old age. What we have today is unrelentingly pagan.

However, there is one silver lining to this day of family gathering and temple worship. Christians get to go to church, which my in-laws did.

Whenever there’s a pagan holiday, it’s always a good time to go to church. I’m sure that there are many who feel a bit horrified by this idea, but going to church is always a good idea.

I also added to my list of stories to tell, but I shall save those for later, because there is a story of horror that is gathering strength. And, we aren’t paying attention.

Genocidal Horror In South Africa

That story is about the white farmers of South Africa and the disenfranchised and homeless whites in the cities. It’s also a story of waste, corruption, crime and utter insanity. And, you are not hearing this story.

Why?

Because the mainstream media isn’t interested. These are white men and white women and white children that are being robbed, raped, tortured and then murdered. And, these murders represent a failure of the the Marxist ideals that journalists seem to uphold everywhere.

Do you remember the Apartheid that everyone thought of as evil?

I remember. Lots of you in your forties and older will remember. You might even have joined the marches and the campaign to divest from anything and everything South African, until that Apartheid was over. If so, you might have blood on your hands, when all of this is over.

Why?

Because genocide has arrived in South Africa, and it has been feeding on the white farmers. It has been destroying the lives of hard-working whites in South Africa. It it is even about to start destroying the lives of blacks in South Africa. Even more important, we have brothers and sisters in Christ who are in harm’s way, in South Africa.

Is anyone sounding the alarm?

Well yes, but I do not see any Christians sounding the alarm. I don’t want to blame all Christians, but I’m not happy that non-Christians are doing more to bring awareness to the horror of South Africa.

You’ll see the three videos and the single article at the beginning of the research section, below. Please watch those, if you can. Please spread the word. As bad as it has already been, things are about to get even worse.

This Is Our Future

Please also understand that South Africa is the future. When you look at history, you’ll see that genocide is a way of life for humanity. Everybody and everyone did it, for reasons that were as ugly as the act itself. And, that means that your amiable, joe-sixpack-neighbor will quickly turn murderous maniac when the lights go out.

This horror is just the beginning of horrors. And, my sincere hope is that you will be ready when our turn comes.

Please pray for our brothers and sisters who have already begun to die in the killing fields of South Africa.

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.

White Farmers Slaughtered in South Africa | Lauren Southern and Stefan Molyneux – YouTube

As I was listening to this, I was struck by a number of thoughts. Israel. God. Intelligence.

Having studied and immersed myself in the history of modern Israel, I quickly recognized the story being told. In fact, you could replace the whites with the Jews… the blacks with the Arabs …and you would have the story of Israel. And, just like with Israel, the mainstream media is not interested in the truth.

Have you heard about what the blacks are doing to the whites in South Africa?

You have, if you have been reading Omega Shock, even though this is not my focus. You would, if you were reading news sources that were outside of the mainstream. But, if your only source of news was your local newspaper, your television or the high-circulation news magazines… you would hear nothing.

Do you remember when I talked about ‘The Big Lie’?

Of course you do. I keep referring to it. But, the truth in that article is at the center of the horrifying genocide that is about to fall upon South Africa.

http://www.omegashock.com/2018/01/26/the-big-lie-and-big-liars/

Lies kill, and the whites in South Africa that are being murdered every day, are being murdered by those lies. The mainstream media is complicit in these lies. The black leaders of South Africa are creating these lies. The liberals are giving money and support to these lies. And, the lying will not end when the last white South African lies dead in her grave, or is on the last plane out of Johannesburg.

No, the lies will find a new target.

This discussion belongs under the Matthew 24:7 category, but I’m not putting it there because there are two more points that do not belong there.

Lauren and Stefan are both missing the key point in this video. They speak to the external characteristics of this growing genocide in South Africa, but they dodge the source. They talk about the superiority of European values and civilization, but they do not speak about the reason why European values are so much stronger and more advanced than black and Muslim values and their civilizations.

What are they dancing around, assuming that they recognize that they are doing so?

Christianity.

You don’t need to be a Christian to benefit from Christian values. Most of Europe and North America are not Christian. Yet, the moral principles of the minority who ARE Christian and live on in the parts of Europe that are successful.

In fact, I have come to a conclusion that took me decades to see:

Without Christianity, you cannot have democracy.

Without a belief in Jesus Christ as God and as the One who came and died for our sins, there can be no democracy.

Why?

Because only a belief in Jesus Christ can allow you to make a personal sacrifice for the good of a neighbor or stranger. Only through Jesus Christ, can you be the preservative that preserves your neighborhood and community – the Salt of the Earth. And, I find it ironic that people like Stefan Molyneux cannot see the Christian origins of the philosophy that he espouses.

Yes, there are many who like to claim that other religions also foster the same kind of sacrificial decisions in a nation. And, I’m willing to give some credence to those claims. I certainly see some of that here in Taiwan. But, there is no religion on this planet that is like Christianity.

In fact Christianity is so unique, that other religions have begun to adopt a Christian vocabulary and even some Christian principles. We have begun to see the Buddhists here in Taipei, pick up some very ‘Christian’ ways of speaking.

Only Christianity has a humility and forgiveness at the very core. Only Christianity has a God that sacrificed Himself for us. Yes, you can point to other religions that claim to share some of these principles, but not all of them. Not the core. And, they are all ‘works based’ religions.

Christianity made Europe what it is today. And no, I do not mean the Catholic Church. I mean the real Christians who were persecuted by the Catholics for more than a thousand years. THEY laid the bedrock of European values, that made Europe successful.

And now that they have discarded anything and everything to do with Christ, Europe is falling.

Then, there’s one more thing, and it has something to do with a growing belief in an idea that there is a racial superiority. There is a growing belief that certain races are superior because they have better genes. Sefan Molyneux has been talking about this a lot more than he used to. And, this Lauren Southern girl has been doing it, too.

I’m sorry, but this is a false paradigm.

Yes, they can point to studies about nationalities and racial types that have higher intelligence scores than other groups. But, I sincerely doubt that we have enough of an understanding of how intelligence develops, to make the claims that Stefan and Lauren make.

Remember that they both reject the idea of God. And, they both embrace the idea of evolution and ‘natural selection’.

Am I rejecting the idea that some sort of ‘natural selection’ is a play here?

No.

But, there’s a lot more to this than the idea that the naturally intelligent people of Africa tended to die, and the less intelligent tended to survive.

Sorry kids, but it’s a lot more complex than that. A LOT more complex. And yes, God is in the mix.

I find it ironic that Christian (or, nominally Christian) societies tend to be more intelligent and more successful, than similar societies under similar conditions. And, I’m afraid that I love irony.

Oh, ‘intelligence’ isn’t as valuable as Stefan and others claim. Most people with a high ‘IQ’ are dumber than a box of rocks. I’ve spent a lot of time with these people, on their own terms and their own turf – and I am not impressed.

Anyway, watch this hour long video. I think that you will be glad that you did. It is a picture of the future and a firm step along the path that Jesus described in Matthew 24:7.

And, please Please PLEASE, pray for our suffering brothers and sisters in South Africa – whether white or black. This is going to be very, very bad.

South Africa: Failed State 2.0 – YouTube

Here is a much shorter and dispassionate analysis of the looming catastrophe in South Africa, from Black Pigeon Speaks.

The insanity is breathtaking.

But, it was also foretold.

South Africa: Civil War | Simon Roche and Stefan Molyneux – YouTube

South Africa really does sound like it is on the brink of absolute catastrophe. Genocide is already happening, and civil war is just around the corner. And, where South Africa goes today, many countries will go tomorrow.

I believe, that as time moves forward, we will see that the Four Horsemen are indeed riding.

The Shale ‘Miracle’ & The Reality-Optional World Of Bizarro Finance | Zero Hedge

I don’t like quoting so much of an article. But, I can’t help it.

James Howard Kunstler captures the reason and ridiculousness behind the situation that we are in, vis-a-vis oil. We think that we have dodged the ‘Peak Oil’ bullet, when all that we have done is dig ourselves into a pit of deepest despair.

Techno-rapturists are celebrating what seems to be a blindingly bright new golden age of energy greatness.

Independent oil analyst Art Berman, who made the podcast rounds the last two weeks, put it in more reality-accessible terms: “Shale is a retirement party for the oil industry.”

——————-

The shale oil companies could get plenty of cash-flow going, but it all went to servicing their bonds or other “innovative” financing schemes, and for many of the companies the cash flow wasn’t even covering those costs. It cost at least six million dollars for each shale well, and it was in the nature of shale oil that the wells depleted so quickly that after Year Three they were pretty much done. But it was something to do, at least, if you were an oil company — an alternative to 1) doing no business at all, or 2) getting into some other line-of-work, like making yoga pants or gluten-free cupcakes.

——————-

The unfortunate part of the story is that the shale oil miracle only made this country more delusional at a moment in history when we really can’t afford to believe in fairy tales.

——————-

As it continues to get unglued — with rising interest rates especially — we will begin to see the collapse of the bonding and financing arrangements that the fundamentally unprofitable shale “miracle” has been based on.

And then you will see the end of the shale “miracle.” It is likely to happen very quickly. It was fun while it lasted. Now comes the hard part: getting through this without the nation completely losing its marbles and doing something stupid and desperate — like starting another merry little war.

If there ANY way to get us to wake up from this fantasy, I would do it. But, there isn’t, because we like our fantasies more than the truth. And yes, that is the source of our problems.

We love delightful lies more than the truth. It is the story of our age, and we will tell that story until we collapse.

What utter fools we are.

Future U.S. Oil Production Will Collapse Just As Quickly As It Increased – SRSrocco Report

Here is another article that exposes the lie of the Shale Oil ‘miracle’, and these two paragraphs are the core of this article:

Because the U.S. Shale Oil Industry was a Ponzi Scheme from day one, the shale oil companies had to design clever investor relations presentations to bamboozle, hoodwink, swindle and hornswoggle investors from their money. And boy did it work. Even though two-thirds of the U.S. shale energy companies are still losing money, investors continue to flood the energy sector with gobs of Dollars and Pennies from Heaven. Without these much-needed funds, the U.S. Shale oil industry would go belly-up.

Now, there’s another downside to the U.S. Shale Oil Industry that I haven’t yet mentioned. Because shale energy industry is producing a grade of oil that has a very high API gravity (very light oil), we have to export more and more of it as our refiners can’t use it all. The notion that the U.S. decided to start exporting oil because we have become a leading oil producer is pure BOLLOCKS. The real reason the U.S. Government allowed the exporting of oil in 2015 was that our refining industry couldn’t use it all…LOL.

That’s right. The shale oil ‘miracle’ isn’t. It’s a scam, and you are the victim. And, the only reason why America is exporting oil, is that a large part of that oil cannot be used fast enough. And, that’s a stupid way to use up an irreplaceable resource.

And, there’s more in this article, if you want to know the truth.

If you don’t want to know the truth, then carry on. Nothing to see here.

Greg Hunter – Weekly News Wrap-Up 2.16.18 – YouTube

One side benefit to being late getting the weekly newsletter out, is that I can put Greg Hunter’s Weekly News Wrapup into the analysis section.

And, this is a good one.

And, this is Greg’s write-up for his weekly news wrapup.

The Greatest Deception Ever! (2018-2019) – YouTube

I’m putting this at the top, not because of the descriptions of the demonic elements that live alongside of us.

There’s a very, very intelligent description of Satan in this one and of his ability. And, it’s from an ex-Navy Seal that God rescued from the pit of darkness.

The angels – all of them – saw God create the Earth and everything on it. The angels saw EVERYTHING. They KNEW God and how powerful and wise He is. THEY KNEW ALL OF THIS AND MORE.

Yet, Satan was smart enough to deceive a third of those angels.

I hope that you understand that. And, you need to get it into your head, because I’ve been on this rant about deception for more than a month. It is destroying and has destroyed many, many people.

Millions have died because of deception. MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS. And, the deception is still at work and will now kill billions.

Satan wants you to use your ‘mental faculties’. He wants you to be ‘logical’. To ‘think this through’. He wants you to use your ‘human mind’ and not the different kind of mind that God gave you, when He saved you.

Satan wants you to use ‘reason’ and to be ‘reasonable’. He wants you to think that you can actually see how it all ‘fits together’.

But, you can’t. You don’t have the physical capacity to see all the pieces and fit them together. It’s just not possible.

Do you remember when Jesus said that you cannot be saved unless you have the faith as a little child?

Here is what Jesus actually said:

And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

 – Matthew 18:3

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+18&version=KJV

Now, Jesus was speaking of ‘greatness’ in the Kingdom of Heaven, of which, you and I are a part. But, Jesus wasn’t just speaking of those who will be great. He was also speaking of survival. Of surviving the traps of Satan.

Satan will use the trap of ‘logic’. God calls us to the safety of childlike devotion.

God isn’t calling us to simple-mindedness and stupidity. No, He is definitely not doing that. God is calling us to stand upon the bedrock of HIS WORDS and HIS WORD. To not doubt anything that He says – no matter how unable we are to understand.

Satan will come to you, ‘clothed in light’ as a ‘minister of righteousness’, and deceive you with human logic. That’s one of many reasons why you should be wary of false teachers like Rick Wiles – who is an excellent example of a ‘minister of righteousness’.

Here is what Paul said:

And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

– 2 Corinthians 11:14-15

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2%20Corinthians+11&version=KJV

Do not… I repeat …do NOT follow a ‘minister of righteousness’ if that ‘minister’ does not speak the truth. And, my sincere hope is that you will understand that.

———————

The other thing to take away from this is the beginning part of this video. The Satanic rituals. The child abuse. The horrifying nature of evil.

‘Normal’ people get into this. That’s right. Normal people. Like you and me.

If you think that only an ‘insane’ person could get caught, think again. You CAN get caught. You WILL get caught, if you are not on your guard. If you aren’t watching for what Satan is doing.

How do you watch for Satan?

By looking at God.

You don’t guard against Satan by examining all the different ways that he can beguile you, trick you. No, you guard against Satan by understanding what is real and true, so that you can see what is fake.

You’ve heard this before, but it’s a good analogy:

You don’t know how to spot a fake ‘dollar bill’ by studying fakes. You learn how to spot a fake by studying real dollar bills.

Accept the Bible as true. All of it. Be child-like in that acceptance.

Know the Bible, and defend yourself with those words.

DO NOT DEPEND ON LOGIC!!!

“Lightning & Thunder” ERUPT in a Christian Church! – YouTube

An excellent expose of the corruption and corrupt philosophy within our churches.

And, Mike ends perfectly.

Just because so many churches are corrupt, doesn’t mean that you should stop going to church. No, the opposite is true. Churches NEED good people to help fight the corruption within those churches.

I don’t mean that you should seek out a corrupt church. What I mean is that you should not worry about finding the perfect church. Instead, you should seek for the church that God has called you to serve in… to help bring holiness and Godliness.

We all go through three stages of development. In the first stage, we need brothers and sisters to do everything for us. In the second stage, we begin to mature and stand on our own two feet. In the third stage, we become those who feed others.

We should all strive to be the ones who are mature enough to serve and teach. We ALL need to be at that level. All of us.

The Sun will get unusually cold by 2050 and might trigger a mini ice age

The question is whether they are being too optimistic.

The FBI director says Chinese society as a whole is a threat to the US – BI

This should probably sit in the ‘corruption’ section. But, it isn’t as much about corruption as Empire.

The ‘threat’ that Dan Coats and Christopher Wray are describing is not a threat to the safety of Americans or of the United States. The threat is to America’s power and wealth. Her empire. And, I’m sorry, but that isn’t a threat.

I WANT the Empire to fall. The American Empire has corrupted America. It has destroyed the moral foundation that America and Americans once stood upon. And no, I do not mean the US Constitution or the Declaration of Independence.

I mean the goodness that came from a sincere desire to obey God. We lost that desire, and now we lose our wealth and power. And, this is as it should be. We SHOULD lose our wealth and power, after we have corrupted ourselves so thoroughly.

The only question is where the line is.

Where is the line that we must never cross, if we wish to stay free and prosperous?

And, when will we receive the just reward for crossing that line?

How much ‘delay’ is there?

I suspect that ‘the line’ was crossed in the ’90s.

However, Jesus said that the ‘Times of the Gentiles’ would be over when the Gentiles no longer controlled Jerusalem. That happened more than 50 years ago.

Ultimately, it doesn’t matter, except as an ‘object lesson’ in how immorality will destroy a nation and people. So, count me as unimpressed by the warnings given by Christopher Wray and Dan Coats. I’m not impressed at all. And…

…we did it to ourselves.

The World’s Largest Migration Is About To Begin | Zero Hedge

This article came out on Wednesday, and I was actually caught up in this ‘migration’. For Mrs. Little and me, our ‘migration’ only took us down to Chiayi, about three hours south of Taipei, by train. And, there were lots and lots of people rushing too and forth, attempting to get to wherever their parents were living. But, it was NOTHING compared to what China goes through every year:

Also known as Spring Festival or Lunar New Year, Statista’s Niall McCarthy notes that this the event sees hundreds of millions of people leave their cities in order to visit their families in more rural parts of the country. In fact, practically all of China takes holiday at once, making the new year the biggest human event on earth.

If you thought that ‘Thanksgiving’ was bad, try being in China as the great horde leaves the cities for the countryside. And then floods back, again.

There is literally NOTHING like it.

Oh, and it’s the Year of the Dog, and everyone in China and Taiwan knows what ‘animal’ that they were born under. And, parents often shoot for the more ‘auspicious’ signs to be born under. Like the Tiger and Dragon.

We have two nephews who we call ‘Little Tiger’ and ‘Little Dragon’.

Me?

Well, when I arrived on this verdant island, I was duly informed that my ‘birth year’ was the ‘Year of the Goat’.

That’s me. A goat.

And OLD goat.

Justice Thomas Decries Victimhood Culture | The Daily Caller

Clarence is absolutely right. In every respect. And, the only way that black people are going to overcome their current difficulties, is to do well within the confines of those difficulties.

When your forebears – even centuries ago – sin against God, you will suffer the consequences. And, Africa, all those centuries ago, made bad choices that resulted in chaos and destruction – and then, slavery.

Then, when they had their chance to rise out of their victimhood, along came the lying liar, Lyndon Baines Johnson, to hand out free money and the chains that bound them to the Democrat Party.

To the black brothers and sister that I care deeply about, you must stop lending your voice to the madness that consumes your culture and society. And, if you think that my care for the black people is not genuine, think about this one detail that I rarely share with anyone.

If a certain woman had been willing to leave the US and serve the Lord with me in Asia, I would not be married to the woman that you now know ephemerally as Mrs. Little. But, it was the Lord’s will that I marry someone who was Taiwanese, instead of someone who was black.

The color of your skin is meaningless. Literally. Absolutely. Meaningless.

It is how you use what is between your ears… THAT is what counts. And, I’m afraid that black culture and society has made itself to be vile and repugnant. It wasn’t always that way.

Please. PLEASE. Stop the madness.

“Gravity Works…” | Zero Hedge

This one belongs in a lot of different places: preparation, financial collapse, corruption. But, I’m putting it here, because of several quotes that should make you sit up and take notice:

Virtually every stock market sentiment and positioning indicator has, like the stock market itself, gone from new extreme to new extreme for months. Numerous commentators, including SLL, have been warning for months, even years. Pick a valuation measure and stocks, even after the last two weeks, are at peak valuations rivaled only by 1929, 2000, and 2007.

——————–

The ten-year note made its (price) high in July 2016 and has been trending irregularly lower – and interest rates irregularly higher – since. Higher interest rates raise the cost of leveraged speculation, production, and consumption. Yet, leveraged speculators in the stock market only seem to have noticed rising yields the past couple of weeks.

——————–

When governments are bankrupt, their praetorians forage—a nice word for theft and extortion. They’ll be competing with hordes of foraging civilians, many of whom will be armed. In such a scenario, one identifiable group has a fighting chance, and it will involve fighting and lots of it. That, of course, is the group who have either been preparing for such a scenario for years or have the skill set and mental fortitude necessary to adapt to it. Much scorned, this group may get the last laugh, but it will be a grim one.

——————–

When the government implodes, those on the receiving end of its largess are going to be united by only two things: their outrage and their inability to do anything about it. They’ll have all the solidarity of cannibals trying to eat one another.

Against that backdrop will be the group who wants to provide for itself…and knows how to do so. Individualism, self-sufficiency, and a love of freedom and inviolable liberties are not dead in America, but those who support them have been driven underground. They’ll stay underground come the collapse—advertising abilities and provisions will be an invitation to brutalization, robbery and murder—but they’ll fend off the rampaging hordes, survive, and reemerge.

What scares me is that he will be right, and that those who are better armed and organized will rise and take over America. If he’s right, THAT will be ‘The Beast’, and they will call themselves ‘Christian’.

He doesn’t understand that, but you and I should. The anti-Semite, muscular Christians will either BE ‘The Beast’, or they will ride ‘The Beast’. And, they will do it in the name of Jesus Christ.

 

THE FISA MEMO

This is one of the most horrifying and revolting corruption cases ever. There have been worse betrayals of the American people, but none of them have been so out in the open and ugly. There’s a crassness and obscenity to this that goes beyond words like, ‘violating the US Constition’.

This is systemic corruption at the core of the empire.

Tucker – The Steel Dossier is All They’ve Got, 2043 – YouTube

That ‘Steele Dossier’ is pathetic. The problem is that most people do not have the brain power (or the willingness to use it) to see how pathetic it is.

It’s the same as if I wrote an article calling Trump a baboon… then I ‘leak’ it to CNN …CNN then uses my article to claim that Trump is actually a monkey of the genus papio (i.e., Baboon). I then cite the CNN report as evidence that I’m right.

Except, I’m citing someone who is citing ME.

We call that ‘circular reasoning’, and a large part of American society does not understand the falacy behind that kind of thinking.

Has Strzok’s FBI Boss Turned Against the Coup? , 2046 – YouTube

This is why certain kinds of conspiracies just don’t work. Someone always ‘turns’. There’s always someone who gets a ‘change of heart’ or suffers from a ‘guilty conscience’. Or, there’s someone who thinks that he can improve his own chances by betraying a ‘coup’.

Is “Bill Priestap” one such person?

BuzzFeed Suing DNC For Proof They Were Hacked | Zero Hedge

Oh dear. This is good.

In an attempt to defend themselves from a Russian, who is suing them, Buzzfeed is suing the DNC to try and get the proof that they need to prove that ‘Aleksej Gubarev used his web hosting companies to hack into the DNC’s computer systemsAleksej Gubarev used his web hosting companies to hack into the DNC’s computer systems’.

Of course, the proof isn’t there, so Buzzfeed might wind up proving that the DNC wasn’t hacked.

Yup. Blown up by their own bomb – or, ‘hoist by their own petard’.

Is John Brennan The Mastermind Behind Russiagate? | Zero Hedge

Here’s an interesting paragraph:

It all started with Brennan. After Putin blocked Brennan’s operations in both Ukraine and Syria, Brennan had every reason to retaliate and to use the tools at his disposal to demonize Putin and try to isolate Russia. The “election meddling” charges (promoted by the Hillary people) fit perfectly with Brennan’s overall strategy to manipulate perceptions and prepare the country for an eventual confrontation. It provided him the opportunity to kill two birds with one stone, to deliver a withering blow to Putin and Trump at the very same time.

So, Brennan – Muslim convert and head of the CIA under Obama – was the one to bring this anti-Trump ‘dossier’ together and attempt to take down Trump AND hurt Putin.

We’ll all have a chance to see how far this goes.

Soros – One of the Greatest Threats Against Society? | Armstrong Economics

So, not only is he a threat to our society, he’s also a moron.

But, if you look carefully at this article, he’s only ONE of the evil dudes at the heart of our society’s destruction. All that Soros did was follow the lead of the elites. That’s it.

It doesn’t take brains to follow orders.

JAPAN | No Country for FAT Western Womyn – YouTube

Okay, please understand that ‘Black Pigeon Speaks’ is, um… speaking …from the point of view of Japan. Not too far south of Japan, is where I live, Taiwan.

Taiwan is a much, much nicer island. MUCH nicer. And, more chubby. Actually, in the seven years that I have been here, they have gotten significantly chubbier.

This is NOT a good thing. Not at all. And, it’s yet another sign of the impact that the US is having on Taiwanese culture. And no, being ‘fatter’ is bad for you. It’s unhealthy. Seriously.

Unfortunately, being mean-spirited, like the Japanese, is ALSO not good for you. As my wife tells me, the Japanese are polite, but not nice. In fact, they’re pretty awful. In almost every way. How ‘Black Pigeon Speaks’ can live in Tokyo and like it, is beyond me.

My completely adorable mother-in-law lives south of Tokyo, and the week that we spent visiting here, was enough for me. Serioiusly, Japanese culture is pretty awful. Yes, it’s ‘pretty’. But, even more ‘yes’, it’s awful. Really awful.

Please. Take control of your life. Don’t force society to try and take control of it for you.

New ‘Peter Rabbit’ called out for food bullying, making light of Epipen

I’m less concerned about the subject of this article, than the topic.

WHY are so many of our kids, allergic to so many natural ingredients?

When I was growing up, I did not know of a single child that had an allergy like this. Not. A. Single. One.

Yes, there were allergies to normal things like pollen, poison ivy and bee stings… but peanuts? Cheese?

Anaphylactic shock?

I went through a period of food allergies, when I was a teenager. Migraines and a bit of a rash was as far as I got. And, I got over it.

Anaphylactic shock is a different. A LOT different.

Is there anyone getting to the bottom of this?

And no, I don’t want to hear about ‘processed sugar’ and ‘processed flour’. We had all that as much then, as now.

That, my friends, is the sound of a ‘trial balloon’ going up. It doesn’t make a lot of sound, and it’s pretty quiet. But, it’s purpose is to see if anyone will get too upset with the idea of going to war in Syria.

If this ‘trial balloon’ gets shot down, the Euro-American powers will quietly go back to their bunkers and look for another opportunity. And yes, they ARE looking for an opportunity.

Why?

Well, Iran, of course. The Iranians are a gigantic threat to Europe, as are the Russians. But, each is a threat in a different way. The Iranians are Islamic fanatics, and the Russians have a stranglehold on winter heating fuel – natural gas.

And, when Turkey makes nice with the Iranians… well …it will be ‘Katy bar the door’.

Missing Whiteface skier found alive in California

This is completely and absolutely bizarre.

Man goes missing in ski resort in New York and winds up, five days later in California – 2900 miles away. And, he doesn’t know how he got there.

It sounds like someone drugged him, loaded him into a car, and then drove to Sacramento. Where he was dropped off.

And no, there are no ‘aliens’, except the kind with foreign passports. After all, I’m a LEGAL alien, here in Taiwan.

Princeton Professor cancels class after uproar over N-word. | The Weekly Standard

So, Americans can no longer even discuss the use of the word ‘nigger’ in an academic setting. This professor was trying discuss the impact of words versus forms of physical violence.

Vatican-Produced Pope Francis Documentary Hits Theaters in May

Oh great. Pope Franky gets the ‘pop-star’ treatment. They want a superstar, and they will do their best to make it happen.

After all, he claims to be the ‘vicar’ or sole representative of Christ on Earth. He claims that he acts on behalf of Christ.

So, turning the Pope into a superstar would almost be a duty, right?

It is too bad that the blood of tens of millions of Christians – murdered by the Roman Catholic Church – lies on his hands.

And, that’s just the Christians that his foul church has murdered. If we got started on the non-Christians, we’d be here all day.

Terrified Of Bitcoin – Banks Forced To Innovate For First Time In 40 Years | Zero Hedge

This is part of what I meant when I talked about the barriers that need to be overcome, for ‘The Beast’ system to rise and take over the world. Here’s the relevant part of this article:

When the CEO of the company launching RTP in the US announced the platform, he admitted that the “RTP system will be the first new payments system in the U.S. in more than 40 years.”

That’s utterly pathetic. The Internet has been around for 25 years. Even PayPal is nearly 20 years old.

Yet despite the enormous advances in technology over the past several decades, the last major innovation in bank payments was back when Saturday Night Fever was the #1 movie in America.

Banks have been sitting on their laurels for decades, enjoying their monopoly over our savings without the slightest incentive to improve.

Cryptocurrency has proven to be a major punch in the gut. The entire banking system keeled over in astonishment over Bitcoin’s rise, and they’ve been forced to come up with an answer.

Banks and ‘big money’ are fighting back against this new, cryptocurrency idea. But, they are slow. VERY slow. And, they only move when they are threatened. But, now that they are threatened, they are doing their best to move quickly.

Will they get the governments to help them fight cryptocurrencies?

Or, will governments sit back and wait for this technology to develop.

Will the governments choose to undercut the banks, and the take the reins of commerce, directly?

After all, that’s what this ‘Mark of the Beast’ really is. It’s the government going around the banks and taking control of the financial system, directly.

Ultimately, the writer is correct, with his last sentence:

The banks don’t stand a chance. The future of finance absolutely belongs to crypto.

Unfortunately, the truth in that statement isn’t what the writer originally intended.

North Korea Defector: Kim Fears US Preventative Strike, Is Buying Time To Complete Nuclear Program | Zero Hedge

I find it interesting that ‘The West’ has lost its understanding of how dictators think, and how to back them into a corner. Here’s what a previous member of the North Korean regime has to say:

Yonhap details Ri Jong-ho perspective of the current situation in North Korea, and surprisingly praises Trump’s recent adversarial efforts, saying the issue of human rights abuses is a powerful “weapon” against Kim and “the most effective means to resolve the North Korean standoff.”

“Kim Jong-un is struggling under the strongest-yet sanctions and military and diplomatic pressure, so he is trying to improve the situation by putting on a false front,” Ri said.

Allegations that sanctions are having no impact on the regime are untrue because the measures of the past year are the toughest in 25 years, and Kim is trying to “create a hole” in that sanctions regime, he added

Well, DUH!

There isn’t any other way to bring down a regime, except through their ‘bank account’, military invasion or assassination. Or, all three.

Israel has been proving the truth of this, for a long time, but people have been ‘conveniently’ ignoring the lesson that Israel has had to learn the hard way.

Why do people have to be so stupid?

Pandemic Can hit the Food Supply | Armstrong Economics

We don’t often think about agricultural diseases as being a threat to our lives. And normally, if you have the money to take food from other people, pandemics affecting crops and farm animals aren’t a problem.

They become the starving poor’s problem, since you bought their food.

No, you didn’t know that this happens, and you probably will not know when it happens. But, it will happen, and people will die.

The question is whether The West can continue to buy its way out of a famine.

At Least 17 Dead, 20 Wounded In Florida High School Shooting; Suspect Identified As Former Student | Zero Hedge

Here’s the only indication that this shooting could have been avoided. This is a quote:

Teachers had been warned not to let Cruz onto campus with a backpack, and he had previously been the subject of schoolwide warnings about possible violence; last year he was not allowed to come back on campus because of threats against students.

And then, this one:

Trevor Hart, 16, who knew Cruz in Spanish class, said Cruz had a bunch of weapons because Cruz talked about shooting lizards, squirrels and frogs. He said he thought he seemed “a little off.”

As American society continues to become more demonic… to continue to fall apart …how are Americans going to protect themselves from screwed up kids who are ‘a little off’?

And please, don’t call this a ‘false flag’, and I know that many of you want to. But, the Bible says that ‘the love of many’ will ‘wax cold’. Psychopaths like this dirtbag are going to increase, and they have ALREADY increased.

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.

Being a Watchman is Not for the Blind – By Nathan Leal | Watchmans Cry

I find it interesting that the muscular Christians on the Trump train are also the same kind of Christians that claim the need to ‘conquer the seven mountains’ of the world before Christ returns.

This ‘Seven Mountain’ heresy is truly diabolical, and their support for Trump is just another sign that Trump is NOT the ‘savior’ that everyone claims that he is.

I’ll still give Trump the ‘kudos’ that he deserves, when he does things worthy of ‘kudos’. But, we should not be deceived into believing that Trump is good.

Trump is a billionare. And, that’s about all that we know about him.

Trump Is Disposable, He’s The Doorman – “The Deep State Runs The Show” | Zero Hedge

This is an important thought to keep in mind:

We assume that, because we were allowed to vote for our leader, he must actually be our leader. But, as Mark Twain has at times been credited as saying, “If voting made any difference, they wouldn’t let us do it.”

That’s from the article, and it’s the truth.

 

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.

Caught On Tape: Security Drags Woman From Hearing For Exposing Big Oil Funding Politicians | Zero Hedge

I don’t know the merits of this legislation. But, the actions of these West Virginia politicians are an abomination. They were embarrassed to be named as having received donations from oil companies – especially, since they were voting in support of a measure that they wanted.

This is just a tiny example of the abominations that live in America’s halls of power. These vile and evil fiends from Hell have sold their own country for 30 pieces of silver.

One day, blood will run in the streets. And, it will be their fault – and ours for allowing it.

Brazil Military Takes Control of Rio de Janeiro’s Security – Bloomberg

This is the kind of thing that I expect to happen in the US, in the coming decade – if not sooner. The corruption in the justice system, the corruption within policing institutions and the overall distrust of government will fuel a rise in criminal activity that will require martial law.

Brazil is merely showing us all where America is going.

Every corrupt decision by government, is pushing us further and further down that road.

 

PREPARATION

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.

And yeah, the percentage is DEFINITELY more than just 10%. And, those that don’t score a 30 or more on the Hare test, will definitely still score high.

If a nuke went off in Manhattan and in Washington D.C., most of America’s psychopaths would probably be taken out. Of course, you also might need to nuke the porn industry and Hollywood, to get over the 50% mark.

Think of it as a scientific experiment.

This May Be The Beginning Of The Great Financial Reckoning | Zero Hedge

This article starts out with an analysis of how much the US national debt will be. In fact, he says this:

This means that the national debt will exceed $25 trillion by September 30, 202

That’s a lot, and he goes into WHY that’s a lot. But, the bigger issue is interest rates. Specifically, the rates that YOU will pay, when the Federal Reserve is forced to increase the interest rates that it must pay, to lure investors into buying US bonds. And THOSE rates will force YOU to pay higher rates.

Let me quote Simon Black, again:

Here’s a simplistic example: if you can afford the monthly mortgage payment to buy a $500,000 house when interest rates are 3%, that same monthly payment will only buy a $250,000 house when rates rise to 6%.

So, your monthly payment on your ‘variable rate’ mortgage will DOUBLE. But, you are paying that mortgage, because you believe that it’s a good investment.

Right?

Well, here is what happens when interest rates rise, and I will quote Simon Black, again:

Rising rates mean that people won’t be able to borrow as much money to buy a home, and this typically causes property prices to fall.

It’s math kids, and you can NEVER escape math.

Does this mean that you should sell your house and rent?

Well do the math for yourself. If the numbers don’t ‘add up’… you will have some thinking to do.

And, let me quote the last line of this article, about 2018:

So this may very well be the start of the great financial reckoning.

Will you be ready for this?

James Montier: This Is A “Greater Fool Bubble” And I’m Getting Out | Zero Hedge

Ah yes, the ‘greater fool’. There are too many – FAR too many – investment strategies that require there to be a bigger fool to sell an investment to. But, aside from the moral dimension to this idea, there are only a limited number of fools that you can sell things to.

And, there’s ALWAYS the risk of being the ‘final fool’.

Here’s a quote about the current financial situation that we currently find ourselves in:

To me these are really better described as greater fool markets. They are cynical bubbles in that those buying the asset in question don’t really believe they are buying at fair price (or intrinsic value), but rather are buying because they want to sell to someone else at an even higher price before the bubble bursts. Chuck Prince, the former CEO of Citibank, aptly demonstrated the typical cynical bubble mentality when in July of 2007 he uttered those fateful words, “As long as the music is playing, you’ve got to get up and dance. We are still dancing.”

I’m not a professional investment guy, anymore, so I can’t tell you what to do. But, I can tell you what I would do. And, that means not being the ‘final fool’ and getting out while you can.

But, there’s also a moral dimension that we are all forgetting.

Is it right to be actively participating in a system and situation where the way that you make money, is for someone else to suffer?

Can you, in the sight of God, encourage someone to do something that is bad for them?

That you KNOW is bad for them?

And, THAT is the moral dimension that we all face, in these investment markets.

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.

My bigger concern is that this child is being raised to be a threat to society. Parents are no longer ‘parenting’, and they are no longer being held accountable.

Students Sign Petition To Ban “Offensive” Valentine’s Day | Zero Hedge

The only students who would do this are the kind that don’t have a chance of getting a Valentine’s Day card.

I’m as romantic as a rock, so I don’t care – either way.

But, morons?

I care about morons – enough to want them deported to Sweden.

 

ISLAM

Islam is the most vile and Satanic religion on the planet. It is violent, repressive, racist and supremacist. It isn’t just a religion. It’s an ideology that seeks to destroy any nation, country and government that it comes in contact with.

These are the articles that demonstrate what Islam REALLY is.

Zakir Naik Declares: “Jesus Is the God of Muhammad!” – YouTube

The ‘great’ Muslim apologist Zakir Naik proclaims that Jesus is God and the God of Muhammad?

I HAD NO IDEA THAT NAIK WAS CONVERTING TO CHRISTIANITY!!!!

 

MATTHEW 24:7

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?

Why Are European Governments So Terrified of ‘Fake News’? | Zero Hedge

This article doesn’t answer the question. I’m betting that the question cannot be answered, except to claim corruption and rank stupidity.

What this article DOES do is illustrate the efforts that Sweden and other countries are taking to ‘stamp out’ something that they call, ‘Fake News’. And, if this wasn’t going to result in massive death and violence, I would put this in the moron section.

In fact, I am horrified at how stupid these people are.

Have they lost their minds?

 

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:

Russian Deputy PM: Our Banks Are Ready To Turn Off SWIFT | Zero Hedge

Well, this was only a matter of time. Russia is now ready to call America’s bluff. In fact, this might turn out to be one of the things that Russia needed to help bind her allies together. Setting up an alternate financial system would definitely help Russia, Iran and any other country that is routinely accused of terrorism.

When you throw a threat around too often, people do something about it.

 

ISRAEL

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.

Israel warns over Iran’s presence in Syria after air strikes

I am concerned that Iran is toying with Israel, attempting to provoke these responses.

On Iran’s part, they look like they are trying to use Israel’s strategy of massive retaliation to to make it look like Israel is the aggressor. Also, they want to use cheap equipment to lure Israel into using their more expensive equipment.

And, I’m not sure that Israel is being as intelligent as they should be, here.

Iranian UAV that entered Israeli airspace seems to be American stealth knock-off | The Times of Israel

Hmmm… if true, this would appear to be Iran’s best drone.

Was this an attempt to test this drone against Israel’s defenses?

It looks like the drone was a bit of a failure – at least, in terms of getting past Israel’s heavily defended area on the Golan, and the northern border between Israel and Lebanon.

Preparing for war in the north, Israel boosts air defenses – Arab-Israeli Conflict – Jerusalem Post

It is hard to know how far both sides are prepared to go. At the moment, it looks like Iran is testing Israel and testing its own abilities. Iran wants to know how effective their weapons are, and where Israel is weak.

The result will be war.

The only question is when.

It’s Officially Now Illegal To Accuse Poland Of Complicity In Nazi War Crimes | Zero Hedge

It is my understanding that a higher percentage Polish Jews died in the Holocaust, than German Jews. And, it is recorded that many of the Polish people were enthusiastic in their assistance of the Nazis in the extermination of the Jews. And, when Jews sought to return to their homes, they were often murdered by their previous neighbors.

It is an evil thing to hide the evil of your people, behind foul and despicable laws like this. I like Poland. I like the Poles. And, they should not do something like this.

America had to own up to the evils in her past, and there is much more that America needs to do. In fact, EVERY country needs to accept the rebuke of history. Every nation needs to confess and repent of her evil.

No country is free of sin, and it is an evil and foolish thing that Poland is doing here.

Does Israel have the right to exist? – YouTube

Karl shared this with me, and it has a raw authenticity that will resonate with many of you.

David Bass went on a journey to understand what was going on. He’d heard all the voices crying one thing or another, but he decided to find out the truth – with a completely open mind. And, it’s clear that he got the truth. And, he clearly paid a high price for that.

His conclusion?

Israel DOES have a right to exist. In fact, God’s Hand wrote this right and has held that right secure, for the time when the Land would be returned to those who would care for that Land, in the way that it should be cared for.

Damascus warns Israel of “more surprises” in Syria

Of course, there are always surprises. The question in my mind was whether this F-16 was shot down due to the pilot being sloppy, or whether there was a malfunction of some kind.

And yes, Syrian air defenses might actually be capable of shooting down an F-16.

Only time will tell, whether this is a significant development, or not.

36 thoughts on “Chinese New Year and Horror in South Africa”

  1. Possibly a partial answer to all those anguished facepalms in the Moron section, the rhetorical questions of “what is wrong with these people?” This is old (2001) research but I just ran across it today. Surely even more is known now. A study on adolescent drinking and brain damage, bottom line is alcohol does far more damage to a developing brain than a mature one, in smaller quantities, and it is permanent. “Developing” in terms of a human brain means into the mid-20s. And 44% of college students do it. It destroys about 10% of brain capacity. So, for this sizeable portion of the population, shift the average IQ down by 10%. It explains a lot. Yes, the world moron comes to mind, and not as a joke.

    The last paragraph: “Ultimately, the collateral damage caused by having so many American adolescents reach for one drink after another may be incalculable. “People in their late teens have been drinking heavily for generations. We’re not a society of idiots, but we’re not a society of Einsteins either,” says Swartzwelder. “What if you’ve compromised your function by 7 percent or 10 percent and never known the difference?” ” And guess what the title of the article is? Getting Stupid.

  2. Hi John,
    I’ll try to be short, but the matter is delicate and needs to be addressed. Zerohedge lies. It is not “illegal” to speak about crimes perpetrated by the Poles during WWII. The relevant article of that bill starts with: “Art. 55a. 1. Whoever publicly and contrary to the facts attributes to the Polish Nation or to the Polish State responsibility or co-responsibility for the Nazi crimes committed by the German Third Reich…”. So, to do anything “illegal” you have to: 1. lie (contrary to the facts), 2. project somebody’s else crimes unto Poland or the Poles. Interpretation given in this article is just false, that bill gives no legal way to hide actual, and real, sins and crimes commited by the Poles. But, you may ask yourself, why such interpretation is dominant in many media. There are two points:
    1. World war was the playground of Satan, an environment, where ALL the nations got a chance to show the worst. But not all have engineered this environment – and Poles and Jews were not among them.
    2. Those who made all that evil possible have a vital interest to share responsibility. In a very selective way, no one remembers Quislings, Petains, SS Flandern… There is a trend to attribute crimes to “Nazis” (alien race from space, they escaped to their home planet) and avoid using “Germans”, have you noticed? Welcome to German “historical policy”.
    What bothers me, is that (given prevalent lack of historical consciousness and imagination) it all tends to escalate beyond control, and consequences will be sad. Look at this:
    http://www.jpost.com/International/Polish-PM-There-were-Jeiwsh-perpetrators-of-the-Holocaust-542857
    Before you label Polish PM as antisemite:
    https://www.timesofisrael.com/poland-appoints-ex-banker-with-jewish-roots-as-prime-minister/
    If you wonder what he was talking about, did you know about such a thing:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_Ghetto_Police
    Another example, one of the leaders of famous Warsaw Ghetto uprising, war hero and, later, member of Knesset:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adolf_Berman
    and… his brother:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jakub_Berman
    Remember major Pilecki, killed by the communist secret police after the war? Guess who signed his execution order, and thousands of others. Yes, you guessed correctly. And I nearly scratched the surface with those examples.
    World war gave everyone a chance to show the worst. It is a challenge to speak the truth about what happened, and, at the same time, to remember who, and why started it and made it all possible.
    Sorry for long post, but it may be important – we may be steps away from the environment which promotes and conjures everything evil. From anyone.

    • Hi Chris,

      Excellent comment.

      Lord willing, I will be presenting it to Omega Shock readers on Friday.

      There is an additional dimension to this. The entire leadership of Poland was murdered by Hitler, so there wasn’t a Polish government that could have cooperated with Hitler, even if it wanted to – which it didn’t.

      Why else would Hitler have executed the entire leadership of Poland?

      How ironic that the French government essentially stayed intact. As you indicate, Philippe Pétain cooperated completely and enthusiastically with the Nazis. The Vichy French. Surrender monkeys and the foulest of anti-Semites.

      However, I still worry that Poland is taking the wrong path with this law. It can set a precedent that allows free speech to be suppressed throughout Poland, for any reason whatsoever. But, this is for the Polish to decide, and not myself.

      Again, thank you for making this point, Chris. I appreciate it and will do my best to share it prominently with other Omega Shock readers on Friday.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      • Thank you John!
        Let me add something else, and you should be aware of this. The idea of this bill has nothing to do with Israel or Jewish people. Moreover, it was consulted with Israeli ambassador two times last year, and at that time there was no complaints. It all started when German media conglomerates began freely using “Polish death camps” phrase, and otherwise suggesting that Poland “cooperated” in Holocaust. Hence the bill. Germans have their reasons – special commision of Polish parliament is slowly concluding the assessment of Polish losses during WWII. After they’re finished, the next step will be formal demand of war reparations from Germany (which Poland never got in any form). Two weeks ago secretary of this commission was asked to give numbers, he answered he’s not yet authorized, but he can give the order of magnitude: trillions of US dollars.
        As for the bill, it is now evaluated by Constitutional Court, and it is almost certain it will be corrected. Poland has no intention to be hostile to Israel in any way, or to deny any actual crimes committed by the Poles (in fact I could challenge anyone to find an example of such denial by Polish authorities – there are none). But (even partial) attributing of German “achievements” to Polish nation and state is a red line for us. 3 millions of dead people and utterly ruined country is something we cannot ignore. Or forget.
        Yours in Christ
        Chris

  3. On the very day your article comes out, this happens:

    https://www.news24.com/SouthAfrica/News/hunt-on-for-murderers-involved-in-secunda-farm-attack-20180217

    It’ll never stop, its been the African way for thousands of years and it will remain that way until Jesus returns to deal with all rebels globally. We would prefer a war because there would be a clear winner which would put a stop to this nonsense (we back ourselves) – rather than tolerate this sinister, cowardly violence against the helpless and vulnerable, which again, is in their nature. No media interest within or without the country, ineffective policing, no justice. Coming soon to western neighbourhoods.

    Stay safe.

    ,

    • Hi BigJon,

      Unfortunately, Europeans aren’t any different. The only reason why we aren’t behaving like the Africans is that Christianity penetrated more deeply into Europe, than into Africa. And, the Roman Catholic Church was able force a corrupted version of Christianity onto those who did not accept Christ naturally.

      Even though the RCC was – and still is – pagan, it still had a semblance of righteousness, and it dictated that ‘semblance’ onto the average person.

      What kept Africa from benefiting in the same way?

      Islam.

      The Muslims acted as a physical barrier to the somewhat Christian Europe.

      So, you can blame the Muslims, and you should.

      Thanks, BigJon! Stay safe, brother. Our prayers go with you.

      Yours in Christ,

  4. Dear Mr. Little:

    Fortunately, I “woke up” in October, 2014 and came across Trunews at the same time as I came across OmegaShock. I have never donated to Rick Wiles and have reluctantly come to the conclusion that Rick Wiles cannot be trusted. I no longer listen to his programming. Though I am not as adamant about his motivations or his lack of salvation as you are, I have witnessed his theological and prophetic errors and his lack of love towards others, especially Christians. One of the first things that bothered me about Rick Wiles was in Dec. 2014 he said on a program that he was getting out of the US as it was time to leave the US. That never happened. In fact, he now has a new church campus. He never explained himself for the abrupt turnaround in God’s leading and that was my first red flag.

    I do have a question for you that does bother me. If the United States falters in its protection of Taiwan, the PRC will immediately take advantage of the situation. Many have speculated that a Korean conflict is exactly what the PRC wants as it will cause the US to be preoccupied with a regional war, unable to protect Taiwan without going nuclear. Sure, as christians, we go where God leads us, even so, I am certain you have thought through the possibility of the PRC overthrowing Taiwan. I personally see such a conflagration happening within the next 10 years. So, why do you stay in Taiwan ? I really would be interested in your response.

    • Hi David Whaley,

      Let me be a little more clear about Rick Wiles. I said that he was not a Christian. I did not say that he was not saved, and there is an important distinction there.

      Why?

      Because, he might merely be under a strong delusion. And, I hope that he is. And, you can recover from a ‘strong delusion’. Many have.

      Salvation is a decision made by God. The outward evidence of that decision is being a Christian. For most, this is a distinction without a difference. I truly hope that Rick Wiles has been chosen by God, and I will know that, when he stops his deliberate lies.

      He lies deliberately. He is dishonest in his finances. He is without a shred of humility. He is without love.

      Does that sound Christian to you?

      Not to me.

      Remember that we judge each other by our fruit. And, we are required to judge.

      As for Taiwan, I came here to be a self-supporting missionary. And, my wife and I have done missionary work in the Universities here in Taiwan. That effort has declined. We now only teach two Bible classes a week.

      So, I am not here as a place of safety. In fact, I was here when I woke up to the grave threat that all of you face.

      Having said that, the threat from China isn’t as big as you think. A war with Taiwan would be a far more costly affair than most realize, and China isn’t able to invade Taiwan successfully. At least, not yet.

      Will China eventually capture Taiwan?

      Yes, but not through invasion. Or, I should say that the capture of Taiwan will PROBABLY not require invasion. And, it might take 20 years, under current conditions.

      Please also understand that Taiwan has already surrendered to China. All that they are doing – in reality – is negotiating the terms of surrender.

      Thanks, David. I hope that helps you understand.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little
      omegashock.com

      • Salvation is a decision made by God? Do you mean in his foreknowledge he predestined every believer because he knew who would accept his”great invitation”?

        • Hi Julie,

          I don’t find any verse in the Bible that describes what you have said. If you DO have a verse, please share it.

          But, I do find Romans 8 and Ephesians 1.

          As for the concept of Predestination vs. Free Will, that is a part of the ‘mystery of God’. However, it is a sin to add to the Bible. If it isn’t there, we should not add it.

          Do I understand predestination or free will?

          Of course not. No one does.

          But, having thought about this for a very long time, I don’t see the Bible talking about ‘free will’. And, if there is ‘free will’ there isn’t very much.

          The bottom line is this:

          It doesn’t matter how much free will that we have.

          If you wish to claim that it matters, you will need to provide chapter and verse, for why it does.

          I live each day as if I have complete free will, but I look at my future as if I do not. And, however much free will that I have, I freely give it into the hands of the One who sent His Son to die on the Cross for me.

          I hope that helps, Julie.

          Yours in Christ,

          John Little

  5. South Africa, the lies and deception have been going on for so long, waiting for the truth to show up seems almost futile. Remember the Huthus, and the Tsutsis? No one is covering the aftermath of slaughtering Christians. Has anyone heard how many Christian lives ARAB SPRING has cost. Alt media is covering some of the aftermath, of these events, but few and far between. The lack of MSM coverage is sad!! Much bloody hands!!

    I agree that moral backbone in society comes from Christianity. Where does LAW come from?? The Throne is established by righteousness. The recognition of individual GOD given rights under MAGNA CARTA kicked freedom up a big notch. They have no concept that moral societies that have endured come from mosaic law, let alone the do unto others concept.

    Pandemic in the food supply?! The government still subsidizes acreage set aside. With a famine coming, it seems like planting all of your own fields will be beneficial, but is it more profitable to now the grass and cash the check. We lost 60 million piglets to PERS some years back, then we had a hit on Turkey’s a few years later. Then we have TERMINATOR seed patents to look into.

    Shale oil and peak oil?? I am still holding my cards close on these two. Shale oil was first made out to be a lost cause, a losing proposition. Then it turned out perfectly suited for polluting groundwater. I come from the era that watched environmentalists stop oil drilling all through this country. Did anybody get to drill those massive deposits, or are they still untouchable? We’re they lying then or now?? We are dealing with EVIL, money was no object, and we spent zillions on research that we will probably never see. Hiding technology is nothing new. Oil could have been outdated and obsolete decades ago. Even after all these years, we accomplish only 20 more miles per gallon?

    So many topics so little space. Well done

  6. “Everyone thinks that their culture is the best, that they are in some way superior to someone else. ”

    Unfortunately this isn’t true for everyone. I was in Guatemala in the 80s and people there were trying to imitate Americans in ways that ranged from the ridiculous to the tragic. One lady looking at photos I brought from home actually asked me “Why are Americans all beautiful and Guatemalans are ugly?”

    • Hi Marie,

      I also live in a country that idolizes America and Americans. And, they also go overboard in often ridiculous ways to imitate America and Americans. We even have an ‘Elvis Impersonator’ in our apartment building.

      BUT – and it’s a big BUT – the Taiwanese still have chosen Taiwanese culture over American culture at a basic level. They still celebrate Taiwanese customs. They still worship at their temples. They still speak Mandarin and Taiwanese – and yes, they are two different languages.

      In fact, most countries idolize America, even while holding on to key cultural elements.

      I hope that helps, Marie.

      Yours in Christ,

  7. More random observations.

    On the carnage in South Africa, of course no one learned anything from what happened in Zimbabwe so they will repeat it. Under Mugabe, who was ousted last fall and I have no idea what is happening now, they had such preposterously bad management – not just corrupt but mindbogglingly incompetent – that they probably broke a world record for hyperinflation at 79.6 billion % in November 2008. Per Wikipedia. Prior to that, they had confiscated productive farms from white farmers, given it to native Zimbabweans who felt they had a right to this land but had no idea how to farm, in the efficient modern way the previous owners had done. So everything went to hell in a handbasket, food production plummeted, people were starving and one article I read interviewed people who were catching rats at the garbage dumps to cook and eat them. Idiots.

    On the increase of chubbiness. It is not entirely choice, Not entirely. There has been an exponential increase in “feminizing chemicals” in developed countries and this corresponds not as much to Big Macs (I love them too) as the increasing use of hormonal medications (including birth control pills), anticholesterol medications, and the use of plastic in food packaging. Like plastic milk jugs, not to mention all the other drinks and foods wrapped in plastic. The chemicals that leach into the food are similar enough to female hormones, which cause fat deposition because nursing a baby is incredibly calorie-intensive, that they have measurable biological effects. This has been studied. Worse, it does not just affect those who take these medications or eat plastic-wrapped food; those medications eventually wind up in the sewer sytems and even after treatment, in the water supply. Amphibians are especially sensitive to this and are increasingly found to be sexually deformed. Perhaps that is the next step for humans, after the average American man’s sperm count has dropped by about 50% since the advent of plastics in food packaging. One has to wonder if it has anything to do with an increase in homosexuality. Or other bizzarre sexual “wiring”.

    Also, genes switch on and off depending on certain external circumstances. They used to think all genes were permanently on or off, like for eye color, etc. But that is not the case. Chemicals, nutrition or lack of it, even bacteria and viruses can change this. Vitamin D has been found to affect more than 1,000 genes. There is sound research linking Alzheimer’s disease to a virus and 2 bacteria –

    http://neurosciencenews.com/microbes-alzheimers-neurology-3826/

    – and there is now evidence that gut bacteria can cause obesity. They discovered this in treating intractable diarrhea from antibiotic-resistant clostridium difficile. C. diff is part of the normal flora but when a person is heavily treated with antibiotics, the intestinal flora get way out of balance and the C. diff can multiply out of control because there is little competition. This happens often enough that C. diff is becoming resistant to antibiotics. So, to get the gut flora back in balance they have tried “poop transplants”, from a healthy person, and found that when a thin person gets gut bacteria from an obese person, they often become obese. That is an unnerving thought, that something as easy to spread as bacteria could make you obese. It might explain why obesity seems to “run in the family” for some, although there are also genetic reasons other than the effects of bacteria.

    The genes for fat deposition, or lack thereof, have an extreme effect in terms of whether they are turned on or off. Obesity researchers have found that some people can be given 5,000 calories a day more than they require and not gain an ounce; their metabolism revs up and burns it all off as heat. Other people, if given 100 calories more than they use, store every bit of it as fat.

    On a pandemic wrecking the food supply: read up on the Irish potato famine. Especially the way the Brits handled it – that is almost more amazing than the famine itself. Talk about insanity. People in Ireland were literally dropping dead in the streets from starvation, it the relatively recent 1800s, it was perfectly obvious that it was from a lack of their staple potatoes, and the Brits decided the problem was laziness and decided to tax them more severely. Some tried to bring boatloads of those still standing to England to find work and buy food, but the Brits were incensed at this, they didn’t want those scruffy-looking people in their neighborhoods. I am completely serious.

    On the stock market: consider that most profit in a stock market, consists of what others have lost. How moral is that? To basically be the more clever one who thereby takes money from the pockets of the less clever? With the sociopaths at the top siphoning off as much as they possibly can, and keeping the whole scam going?

    • Hi DRG,

      Now THAT is a comment jam-packed with interesting goodness. And, there is very little that I can add, other than to say ‘Yes and AMEN!’

      I’ve been reading the news about Zimbabwe from almost day one, and it’s a picture of utter horror – and not just because of the murders. I’m talking stupidity and corruption for as far as the eye could see. It’s as if they attempted to redefine moron… and succeeded.

      As for the fat thing. There is a lot – a massive amount – to what you are saying. It would be interesting to do an in-depth study on it, but no one would touch it with a barge pole. There’s no money in it. And, the political lobbies would be against it.

      And, the Potato Famine. Yeah. I’d heard lots about that over the years. It was terrible. And, America received a flood of Irishmen, because of it.

      How ironic that America would accept the Irish fleeing the potato famine, but not the Jews fleeing Hitler.

      As to the stock market, no matter how much you tried, it would still end up this way. Greed ALWAYS takes over something like this. ALWAYS.

      You could still have a stock market, without greed, since it DOES serve a beneficial purpose. It gives companies the ability to get funding for expansion and gives people the chance to provide for their own retirement. And, a natural stock market does not need to prey upon the unwary, since ‘a rising tide lifts all boats’. A ‘natural’ stock market would play a key role in any natural economy.

      We just aren’t all that ‘natural’ anymore.

      Thanks for that excellent comment, DRG. Well done, sister.

Yup ole Billy Gates. Only 4 known cases of Zika last year, but they are going after it! I also read autopsy of Paddock has him 6’1″ and bad teeth, paddock was 6’4″ with good teeth. Myself, I ythink high fructose corn syrup has a lot to do with the obesity problems. With gmo corn. The research is out there on this. You grew up in Indiana, do you remember when yellow jackets stopped drinking coke and mountain dew?? When bugs refuse free food something is up.

    Justice Thomas is onto something, looking for opportunities, adapt, adjust, and improvise, and follow your GOD given talents. Common sense and faith work wonders too.

    • Hence the saying, ignorance is bliss. Neighbors, co-workers and most family love their comotose state and will not hear anything unpleasant. They do not want to know the truth……………and focus on the day to day, teevee, grandkids, sports etc. it is amazing. We are paying for the third world invasion, keep electing morons the list goes on and on……………..its something else. Insanity!

  10. Regarding your comment, “No matter what the child’s problem is, good parenting can solve this. “, I would say that may be true of younger children. And yes, the parent was definitely at fault on that particular instance.

    As a parent of an adopted child (we got her when she was 7 1/2 years old) who has gone completely contrary to the way we raised her, there is some brokenness in children that can’t be fixed by parenting or any human intervention. This has not only been my personal experience but witnessing the same in other families, especially those of children adopted when they were older. The brokenness was created by others, and there doesn’t seem to be enough love, guidance, counseling, etc. to heal it. Of course, we pray as do the other parents, but the fact is the church seems ill equipped to deal with the behavior of these kids and often just falls back on judging the parents.

    Our daughter is now 22 and we still pray that she will get her life on track. In the meantime, we are raising our 2 year old grandchild. Sometimes our daughter looks at her daughter interacting with us and says, “Maybe it would have been different if I could have come over younger.” and I can’t say I disagree. Maybe it would have made a difference, or maybe the damage would have already been done.

    • Hi ANONYMOUS,

      Since you said “NO NEED TO POST”, I took that as permission not to post, if I didn’t want to. However, I want to, since I have had too much experience in this area. And, I am very impressed by what you said. And, I took the liberty of concealing your identity.

      All things being equal, there will be kids that, no matter what you do, will turn out bad. I have seen it far too often. And, the Bible gives a remedy for that. And, I am ashamed to say that I have a relative who should have suffered this ‘remedy’.

      18 If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them:

      19 Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place;

      20 And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard.

      21 And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.

      – Deuteronomy 21:18-21

      But, a child adopted at the age of seven… that’s hard. So many of our problems have their roots in that important time period between birth and age six.

      Having said that, your daughter isn’t going to go on a murderous rampage, and what you tried to teach her is still there. And, God may use what you did for her, to bring her to Himself. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray that this would be so.

      God bless you, sister. There are many here who will be blessed by your comment.

      Yours in Christ,

    • Dear Anonymous:

      A few things I would like to submit to you for pondering over a hot cuppa (or whatever is your beverage fav).

      1. John is right, parents can do their best, and still have kids turn out not what we would like to see;

      2. That’s not necessarily a bad thing (yes, I did write this on purpose);

      3. Abba has His own plans for our kids and will use everything in their lives to His glory, if we stay submitted and trusting in Him to see His plans unfold;

      4. I am a prodigal daughter who also had a traumatic early childhood (it didn’t get better — my family issues were generational in nature, but praise Abba this is rapidly changing). Although I surrendered my life to Him when I was a young child, the damage was done very early on, unbeknownst to my mother. I finally told Abba where to go and how far when I was a young adult and out of the family home. I ended up living a life of filth and debauchery (which regrettably I thoroughly enjoyed and gleefully encouraged others to do likewise – Rom 1);

      5. BUT what my praying family did not know, was that Abba WOULD NOT LET ME GO. He was there with me the entire time. He hounded me. The very worst of the trouble I tried to get myself into, He blocked my way, so I could go only so far and no more. I knew it was Him and I was enraged. Eventually, I came to my senses and came running back to Him. Was it a smooth sailing, kind, loving, reciprocating (on my part) relationship with my Heavenly Father? Absolutely not. But I refused to give up when Abba was busy renovating His house (me), and all the lovely things that one would expect from a total home reno. Its not done yet, but someone just yesterday said how much they rejoice in the work He has done. My husband likewise. Abba’s arm is not to short to save, nothing is impossible with Him, so long as we learn to trust in Him. And He will not push us past what we can bear. At the same time, though, we must recognize that through Yeshua/Jesus, we can do all things through Him who strengthens us;

      6. My life did not end up being what my longsuffering folks had planned, but Abba had other ideas anyway. His ways are higher, His thoughts are not our thoughts. He is the Master Economizer, He wastes nothing. Some generational issues passed down to me had to be broken, and Abba was helping me break them one by one every time I made a right choice, via recognizing and repenting for making the wrong choice in the first place. Since your daughter is adopted, there maybe some things that she is not aware of that she maybe is having to break through for her and her child.

      7. If I may be so bold to suggest this to you: please encourage your daughter not to give up on herself, as He has not given up on her. She has communicated remorse, but from what you wrote, it appears she doesn’t understand why she does what she does, so her heart is still soft. Rejoice in that; thankfully remind Abba often that her heart is still soft. Abba knows exactly the battle she is facing, and as long as she is truly honest and upfront with Him, no matter how difficult the battle, keep trying to do what He asks of her moment by moment, keep repenting, be brutally honest about it when she fails, getting up as quickly as possible to keep moving forward, and eventually, it will start to come together. We as parents have authority to bind and forbid those things our children battle with spiritually, and to loose and permit the Kingdom of Elohim in their lives instead. Since she is adopted, you and your husband have greater authority to pray into her life than if she were natural born because by law, the parent/child bond is enforced through law. That is a legal and biblical fact. Eph 1. Natural parents can more easily disown their child than can adoptive parents. Hopefully this makes sense, communicating via writing is the worst form of communication, not too much unlike email.

      There is an organization in Denver, Colorado who has excellent, cutting-edge information regarding birth bonding and how to recover it, even with adopted children — it’s never too late, regardless of age. It just takes getting the information, being teachable, and diligently applying the information. LifeSkills International.

      Blessings on you and your family. I will be praying for you and your daughter and grandchild.

      Psalm 139

    • Hi DarL,

      I know someone who goes to his church in Indianapolis.

      It’s a good church. And, I find it hard to believe that Pence would choose such a church, if he was corrupt.

      Either that church isn’t as good as we thought, or Pence is innocent. I hope for the latter.

      Unfortunately, I can’t go through all the information in that link.

      Thanks, DarL.

      Yours in Christ,

  11. Genocidal Horror In South Africa

    There has been a recent posting on beforeitsnews.com reporting this same horror story. There is a petition om http://www.change.com I think to President Trump to bring these white farmers to America as refugees. As of this past weekend, well over 12,000 plus had signed the petition and I person send President trump an email and I don’t know if he will ever read it but your article is spot on and according to records since apartheid was ended, over 68,000 white men, women and children have been raped, tortured murdered and other horrifying actions.

    Thank you for reporting this.
