Of all the enemies that we face in this world, our biggest lies reflected in the mirror. No one has done more to damage our relationship with God. No one had done more to harm the people that love us. No one is more destructive to our churches, our communities and our nation.
We really are our own worst enemy.
The thought that God loves us in spite of all that is more than I can truly understand. The good thing is that I don’t need to understand. I just need to accept it and seek to demonstrate that unfathomable love to a lost world.

I routinely get email from people attempting to help me see the error of my ways, to show me that I’ve got it all wrong, that this or that is true, instead of that other thing that I said. I’ve done that often enough myself that I usually take it in stride. And, I’ve been a writer for long enough to get a feel for the person on the other side of that email.
Having said that, my ‘ability’ isn’t perfect, and I’ve had to apologize profusely more often that I would like. I can be a loose canon at the best of times, a fact that my poor wife will enthusiastically agree with. But, I’m getting better at apologizing. Really.
Now, I understand the desire to ‘set me straight’ on things. I do that all the time, often with great fervor. And, I always appreciate reasoned points of view that add clarity that I would not ordinarily have. And, so many of you that are reading this have blessed me with your own points of view. The comment section is often filled with incredible observations that I’ve been blessed to read and respond to.
May my mind always open where it needs to be open, and closed where it needs to be closed. Where the God and the Bible give permission, I hope to always be mentally flexible enough to adjust my thinking to new information.
That’s why I want to talk about arrogance. It is the exact opposite of this desire. And, it’s incredibly deadly.
Arrogance killed Clinton’s hopes for the White House.
Arrogance led to the defeat of the Arabs in every war that they ever fought with Israel.
Arrogance lies at the heart of every war.
Arrogance destroys families, communities and nations.
Satan’s minions will be defeated because of it.
I’ve seen people killed by arrogance, and I see a future where millions – no, billions – will die because of it. And, they will die because they chose not to believe the evidence that was right in front of them. And, it’s such a waste.
Always ask, “Could I be wrong?”
Except in certain areas specifically described by the Bible, the answer should always be, “YES!” I’ve been wrong enough times to be quite enthusiastic with that answer. In fact, an inability to see that you might be wrong in something is the surest way to failure.
Take science, for instance. The truest forms of it spend more time proving something wrong, than proving something right. There’s not a lot of money or glory in proving something wrong. But, every good scientist knows that it’s a necessary part of establishing what we know to be true.
Peak Oil is an example that never ceases to amuse me. Everywhere I go, there’s always someone who believes that the flow of oil will never end, that our current civilization is just the natural reflection of our own superiority. But, oil cannot last forever. Only a fool would say otherwise.
Yet, people persist in the belief that our access to stupendous amounts of cheap energy will last… forever.
Another one is the Middle East and Israel. There is a growing hatred of Israel that is completely astounding. I have never understood this obstinate desire to destroy the Jewish State, and I don’t want to.
Why do people hate Israel so much?
Yet, when you try to reason with anti-Semites, you get nowhere – and, I’m an eyewitness to events in Israel!
Then there’s gold.
There are those who have absolutely no understanding of the value of precious metals, and they don’t want to know. When Mark Dice once offered people the choice between a bar of silver and a chocolate bar… they took the chocolate!
But, at the same time, I see an almost religious fervor towards gold. Gold is money, they say, and to a certain extent, that’s true. But, it’s not universally true.
Gold is only valuable, as long as others agree with you. Seriously, the value of gold was not encoded into our DNA. There is nothing in the universe that decrees that gold should have some universal importance.
Having said that, I bought gold and I own gold. And, I have said that gold has value, and I believe that it will continue to have value. But please… have an open mind about this. There may come a time when gold will no longer have value.
Already, India is attempting to suppress the ownership of gold. Within the last year, the Bank of Taiwan has started to ask for identification when you sell gold to them. The time may come, when governments will make it impossible to buy or sell gold.
Silver is a somewhat different issue because it has industrial purpose. And, I hold that as well.
And, I am always open to any other suggestion for what might be a reliable and portable store of value.
Ultimately, arrogance is a part of what God calls pride. There are verses everywhere in the Bible that speak of how God feels about pride. But, the one word that echoes in my mind is…
I read this verse at least once a year, and I am convicted of my own pride every time:
Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.
I’ve been an abomination to the Lord far too many times. And, I keep failing at this. Please do your best to never be an abomination to God.
Whenever I am teaching a group of Christians, I invariably ask if anyone knows what the first sin was, and who committed it. The answers are:
The sin of pride truly is an abomination to God. I pray that we all understand that and humble ourselves before God.

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.
Hey, guess what?
If the police decide that you are a threat to… someone …they can force you to put a chip inside your body. And track you.
Isn’t that great?
And yes, they just passed the bill into law.
And you KNOW that they won’t abuse this new legislation. You KNOW, right?
It’s voluntary, just like the IRS was voluntary.
Now, this is NOT the Mark of the Beast. Remember that The Mark cannot be forced upon you. You must consciously accept this. The Mark also includes some kind of worship of The Beast.
BUT, this is a step in that direction. More importantly, it is yet one more shackle.
It’s the USSSA. Enjoy your stay, comrade.
This is what happens when the Rule of Law breaks down. When you are corrupt, people take the law into their own hands. Mexico is headed for revolution.
And the fault lies squarely with the Mexican government.
America is also headed in the same direction, and the government is also at fault.
We humans are so stupid. We keep doing this over and over and over.
I would love to see stormfront, sgtreport and a bunch of other sites shut down. (And yes, Sean Geoffrey Turnbull is an anti-Semite.) But, I want them shut down because everyone thinks that they’re idiots.
Having Google censor them is not the answer.
But, you will forgive me, if I want a baseball bat and permission from God to use it.
This is what happens when one country sees another country do something, and then says to itself… “Hey, that’s a good idea!”
India withdrew a high-value banknote, so Venezuela decided to do the same thing. And no, they do not care that the average Venezuelan will suffer.
This is the evil of socialism, writ large.
Even more on what the foul government in Venezuela is doing to its own people.
I am sickened by this, but it’s the absolute truth. The rest of the world is watching India and taking notes. Venezuela has already followed India’s path.
What will you do to prepare?
And, there’s also South Korea. The list of those trying to eliminate cash is growing and growing.
The world is watching. If the Australians allow this to happen, without putting up a fight, other countries will do the same.
I’m betting that it will take far less than ten years to get rid of cash.
All that it will take, is a really good disaster.
Shale Gas and Shale oil has been – and will always be – an utter failure. The second largest natural gas producer has not made money for ten years. In fact, it has been LOSING money, for all of that time.
And, the cost to the infrastructure has been enormous. In fact, SRSrocco mentions that in his conclusion:
As we can see from all the information and data provided in this article, the Great U.S. Shale Energy Industry has been a complete failure. Moreover, we are witnessing the U.S. Shale Gas Industry, COUNTDOWN to DISASTER. When the industry finally implodes, who will pay to properly cap the tens of thousands of fracked wells?? Who will fix the roads? What happens when the natural gas-electric generation supply drops considerably?
Yes, that is correct. The United States will be in serious trouble. However, Americans today have no clue that the U.S. Shale Energy Industry has made no real money, ripped off landowners of their royalty payments, polluted groundwater and destroyed countless roads across the country, all in the effort to make us “Energy Independent.”
And, one arrogant man wrote to me, saying that we were going to do fine and that I shouldn’t worry my pretty little head about all this.
Hey Comrade, if you like your news, you can keep your news. And, as long as you like the news that we give you, there will be no problems.
You do not want problems, comrade. Trust me on this.
(Hopefully, people will see this as the Orwellian nightmare, that it is. But, I doubt it.)
Oh, and here are the ‘fact checkers’ that Facebook will rely upon:
Facebook is starting out with the following four: Snopes, Factcheck.org, ABC News, and PolitiFact.
The Associated Press will also be a fact-checking partner.
Oh wow. We’re doomed.
This, I like.
This means that her days in Congress are numbered, but it’s nice to see someone doing this.
Wow, I now have an even longer list of facial features that I want rearranged with a baseball bat. However, God has not given me permission to act on such impulses, so I must sit here and fume that the incredible arrogance of the foul and foolish people that are advocating the betrayal of the United States.
I hope that they will repent, but if they will not, I wish them to go to Hell – SOON. They betray the very fabric of the country. They are advocating the death and destruction of civil war.
Of course, they would accuse me of such a thing.
Let us take up our cross and follow Him. Let us sacrifice our lives for Him. Let us accept the struggle and persecutions of this life as our basic service for Him.
Please, PLEASE cast away that false doctrine of a prosperity gospel. What a terrible heresy that is.
Excellent article, Paul. Excellent, indeed.
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.
Hey, it’s a movie that idolizes the Jesuits!
Why am I not surprised?
Dontcha’ just LOVE it when the providers of fake news, are the ones in an uproar over what they call ‘fake news’?
Hyprocrisy. The smell of it is unmistakeable. Like overflowing sewage, fermenting garbage and the scrabble of rats in the ceilings… it is as unique as it is awful.
How do they sleep at night?
When you want a lying liar to lie for you, it’s best to use someone with REAL experience with lying lies.
I bet that Brian doesn’t have a conscience. And, since his integrity has been for sale… for a very long time… he’s perfect.
I’ve had to deal with so much fake news. The BBC did it. The AFP did it. CNN did it. NPR, NYT… EVERYONE did it. And, does it.
All that you need to do, is sit in Jerusalem for long enough.
And, we are dumb enough to fall for it.
Wait. TheBlaze and Mercury Radio Arts did that?
Sorry, Glenn Beck, you’ve gone to the Dark Side. Well, the darker side of the ‘Dark Side’.
And, he seemed to start out so well, before going nuts. I just don’t understand what got into him.
Oh, and there’s a journalist in this piece that tries to make journalism out to be some kind of ‘priesthood’.
Sorry dude, but ‘journalists’ are just eyeballs and ears – with an inept ability to say and write what they hear and see. And, they do a terrible job of it.
At best, journalists are voodoo practitioners. That’s as close to ‘priesthood’ a journalist will get. And, the only way that you can stay in the business is to sell your soul and drink Scotch by the case.
Just ask some of my friends in Jerusalem.
Bad call, Glenn.
This is an interesting reprise of last week’s article:
However, he doesn’t point out the key difference: Christianity.
But, that’s okay. I just did.
The reasons is simple:
Greedy bureaucrats. Greedy governments. Greedy politicians. Even greedy citizens. And, they’re all lazy and corrupt.
The article doesn’t say all that. That’s what I’m saying. However, I believe that the article will lead you to at least part of my conclusions. Greed is universal. Never underestimate its ability to corrupt and destroy.
They are taking their cues from India. This is how they will destroy the cash-based system. Then, they will come for your gold. Then your silver.
Having said that, they might not come for your silver, since it is needed in electronics. Maybe. Or, maybe they’ll nationalize all the silver so that it can be supplied to the electronics manufacturers.
It’s really hard to say. But, there will always be a demand for silver in those countries that manufacture electronic components, computers and suchlike.
I hope that you’ll be ready for this. It’s going to get really bad. Everywhere.
Just to give you an idea of the price that regular Indans are paying for their evil government… OUCH.
Yup. THAT is the REAL Fake News.
Comrade, the great people of great Soviet Socialist States of Amerika haf great leadership. Is good, no?
Is protection for great people, comrade. Nothing to worry about. If worry too much, then wonderful dacha in gulag will be for you, comrade.
Is good. All good. For good of great people. Da?
The Lame Stream Media is killing itself. They’ve been caught with their pants down, and they are flailing about, attempting to shift the blame to someone else. ANY someone else.
Unfortunately, for them, people aren’t buying it. In fact, they aren’t buying it in droves.
What happens next, is anyone’s guess.
And, this is only the beginning.
It WILL get worse.
Awww… the New York Times, the newspaper of Fake News, has hired a hack, to join all their other hacks.
I’ve been asked, several times in the past, if I worked for them. My response then – as it is now – they don’t pay enough. I got paid better, writing computer manuals.
And, the price for my soul… sorry, someone’s already paid for that. Two thousand years ago.
This is ALL about how corrupt journalism is.
A blow-by-blow discussion of how awful print and broadcast journalism is.
An interesting approach to apologetics.
Remember that ‘Apologetics’ does not replace the need to share the Gospel. What it does is break barriers to the Gospel. And, I believe that you can do too much of that.
The question is, “How much is too much?”
I don’t know.
Or, maybe I do know.
There is one way to know that you’ve been doing too much apologetics:
When you realize that you are using it as a way to keep you from sharing the Gospel.
THAT is too much apologetics.
So, search your heart. Are you REALLY using apologetics, to serve God? Are you REALLY following the Lord?
I think of the parable of the sower. Where the seed was scattered.
And then, I think, “You know, someone needs to plow.”
In this video, Greg Koukl calls it ‘gardening’. I call it plowing. And, I like plowing, ‘cuz you get more ground prepared with a plow, than with a gardening tool, but I understand his point.
And yes, I’ve done a LOT of plowing. Sometimes, too much. Thankfully, I am better at sharing the Gospel, than I was before. I get better, every time I try.
Please try. It’s our job.
Now, this video promotes the ‘question technique’ of ‘plowing’. Salesmen call it ‘dealing with objections’. And, sales people know that you won’t get a ‘sale’, if there aren’t any objections. So, this is a good technique, and the Bible shows that Jesus used it.
But, you can also give it an even better term:
Do you really love the person that you are talking to?
I do. I love all the kids in our classes. I love each and every one of them. I want them to receive eternal life, when this life is over. They already know what I believe. And, I will repeat what I believe to them as often as the Lord allows me to.
But, since I love these kids, I also want to listen to them. I want to hear their objections. I will ask them questions, to bring out those objections.
No matter who they are, people want to be loved.
And, the government would never use these devices in the wrong way…
…just like all their other promises.
Little Iceland stood up to the Empire?
Here’s a quote:
So the US were told to leave, and moreover, the politician made things quite clear for them.
Yup. They did.
ICELAND! ICELAND! ICELAND! ICELAND! ICELAND! ICELAND!
Even more on the FBI plot.
The question is… how low will they go?
These three-letter agencies are full of slime, and the good agents know it. Expect a rise in agents retiring and quiting.
Unfortunately, the title of this video is correct. What is coming will shake the world.
Nope. This is NOT what you think. It’s from Prager University, so you should understand a little bit about what this is about.
Guys… this is your chance to understand how to be the ‘Sexiest Man Alive’.
Someone people are just beyond stupid, or maybe they think that WE are.
Okay, you will learn something from this video. Some of you know – if you are a long time reader – that the reason why America did so well after WWII is that America was the only country left that had factories that were still standing.
America was the only ‘developed’ country that wasn’t devastated by WWII.
Of course, what he doesn’t say is that we also had LOTS of oil. At least, until 1971.
Anyway, listen if you can.
This is an interesting discussion about this ‘7 Year Peace Treaty’.
What Daniel 9 says is that this Antichrist does is STRENGTHEN a treaty.
Good ol’ Department of Homeland Security. They got caught, and didn’t expect to get caught. And, now they don’t have a good cover story to explain what they were doing.
The DHS is not only corrupt, but they are also grossly incompetent. If you are going to be a corrupt lying liar, at least have the decency to be good at it.
There’s a part of me that just wants to say that it’s nothing. It’s so hard to believe that ANYONE would participate in the Satanic underworld, that… like I said, ‘part of me’ …I just want to ignore it.
But, the Satanic underworld have their ‘gang sign’ that they use to communicate with each other. And, this video shows you these people doing those demonstrations of fidelity to Satan. And make no mistake, those ARE gang signs demonstrating fidelity and devotion to Lucifer. There is no other way to look at this.
It’s just so sick.
Well done, Texas! Keep up the good work.
BUUUUUUT, the school board votes to go AGAINST a school employee, violating her right to display a Bible verse.
The only freedom that you have, is the freedom to be against God. That’s it.
After all, it’s the USSA, comrade.
And, it’s not just the kids. The adults are getting dumber too!
Well done, Bunker Hill police officers. They were asked to do the illegal and unethical, so they quit.
I hope that those officers get rehired in towns that value honesty and integrity.
This came from Gibby, in the comment section. This won’t be the first time that you’ve seen this one, but this might be the first time that you’ve seen the reason why they place these implants, in the places that they do.
Nick a major blood vessel, and you’ll be in serious trouble.
Thank you, Gibby!
Don’t get me wrong. Artificial intelligence is often a good thing, and there’s lots of stuff that we need to do, that AI can help us with.
But, at the price of our freedom?
No thank you. I’d rather live a life of poverty, where I am free, than a life of luxury where my very thoughts are being controlled.
Remember that the the Satanist have the money and ability to bend AI towards their own ends. Poor folks like you and me don’t stand a chance.
The good thing is that God is our country, which means that we can pick ourselves up and move.
The ‘Obama Birth Certificate’ hasn’t gone away?
If you have friends who are Chrislamists, please tell them that Allah is SATAN. That’s right. The Devil. Lucifer. The Fallen One. Call that being what you want, but I prefer S-A-T-A-N.
Satan is a Hebrew word meaning opposer. And THAT is ‘Allah’ in a nutshell.
And, ‘nutshell’ is an appropriate euphemism, since all of his followers are nuts.
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.
I only had time to watch the first of the videos. But, I can tell you that as I watched that first one, I wanted to get my hands around the necks of these [EXPLETIVE DELETED] and squeeze the life out of them.
God help me, but I want these fiends from Hell dead, so badly. Faithfulness to God keeps me from even planning such a thing, but it is so hard not to wish them dead. And I do want them dead so very, very much.
But, as angry as this makes me, I know that God is far more angry. So, I trust that God’s righteous judgment will take care of these… these… foul individuals. God damn them.
And He truly will, if they do not repent and seek to undo the harm that they have done.
God damns them, indeed. (And, I use those words with complete accuracy.)
This woman calls herself ‘Reality Calls’. And, the ‘Reality’ that she gives here is hard to ignore.
She’s British so ‘Reality Calls’ mispronounces Nancy’s name, but it should be clear that Nancy Schaefer was murdered by those who want to keep the CPS Child Sex ring going.
If you cannot watch ‘Reality Calls’, then it was because she was banned by YouTube, for her ‘PizzaGate’ videos.
And, after doing a bit of extra digging, I realized that she has had to take down her most hard-hitting videos. What you see is NOT her best stuff, because her channel will be banned, if she gets just two more strikes.
Oh, and that tawdry pizza place at the center of all this?
The guy who runs Comet Ping Pong Pizza is listed among the most powerful men in Washington D.C.
And, this is her website.
Yes, it is important to follow the truth.
Here’s the woman behind Reality Calls.
Now, notice the difference from BEFORE she was threatened by YouTube. Also, lots of disturbing information here.
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.
Yup. That’s how they did it.
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.
Actually, almost ANY city will be a bad place to be when disaster strikes. But, some are worse than others. The 25 chosen in the infographic are some of the worst, but notice the best region to be:
Unfortunately, Indonesia and the Philippines are becoming less and less safe.
Could New Zealand be the paradise that it seems to be?
This is that infographic that wasn’t real visible in the article.
Okay, so Trump won.
This is good, because it means that Clinton lost.
This category speaks to the aftermath of the Trump win. My hope is that I’ll be able to close this category out, when the world realizes that Trump will not be as good as people hoped, or as bad as they feared.
Trump will be just one more president, in a long line of presidents, that compromized on the ideals that are the foundation of America. (Either that, or the Deep State will assassinate him.)
Here’s a quote:
The transition team has asked the agency to list employees and contractors who attended United Nations climate meetings, along with those who helped develop the Obama administration’s social cost of carbon metrics, used to estimate and justify the climate benefits of new rules. The advisers are also seeking information on agency loan programs, research activities and the basis for its statistics, according to a five-page internal document circulated by the Energy Department on Wednesday. The document lays out 65 questions from the Trump transition team, sources within the agency said.
If you’re an idiot who believes in ‘global warming’ prepare to get fired.
I’m not a huge fan of Nomi Prins. But, what she says here is important. If you voted for Trump, you have a responsibility to hold him accountable.
And, right now, he doesn’t seem to be making the right kind of cabinet picks that would conform to the idea of ‘Making America Great Again’.
Blind support of ANYONE is stupid – especially, when they hold the ‘purse strings’ of your country.
Hubris is such an interesting failing in humanity.
We get overconfident, and think that we can’t lose. Then, we lose.
I love that. Call it dark irony. Call it schadenfreude, if you want. (I can’t remember the last time that I used that word!)
And yes, the joy in Clinton’s defeat is the best kind of schadenfreude.
(Schadenfreude is the pleasure derived by someone from another person’s misfortune.)
So yes, I am ‘suffering’ from a bad case of Schadenfreude, and it might be CONTAGEOUS.
(Get too close, and I shall cough on you.)
Good ol’ Paul Krugman. He’s a complete loser, but the elites love him. It should be interesting to see what happens as inauguration day comes closer.
Hannity’s last line is precious:
…so, the President-elect, if he wants any real friends in Washington… well, I heard that he got a dog, called Patton. If he wants two friends, get two dogs.
I laughed. Every time I listened to that to make sure that I got the line right.
If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog. Otherwise, you’re on your own.
It’s nothing that we didn’t expect, but still… that’s pretty low class.
But, the media have been operating like this for so long, we’ve all come to expect it.
Ah, so THIS is how Trump did that ‘Carrier Deal’. Trump knows how to twist arms.
It looks like the ‘Russia did it’ meme is unraveling. Good.
You saw the word, ‘Romney’. That’s right. She’s Mitt Romney’s daughter.
Notice the dynastic influence within American politics?
Now, she’s a Mormon.
The Mormons believe in the US as ‘The Holy Land’. Mormanism is the ULTIMATE Patriotic Religion. They include the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution as a part of their holy writ.
They are also a secret society with a large, visible element at the base, but a secret core at the top.
And now, thanks to Trump, the Mormons have one of their own as RNC chair.
I hope that you understand the implications of this. Trump has handed the Republicans to the Mormons. And, you can bet that he made a backroom deal with ‘Mormon High Command’, when he did that.
And no, Trump doesn’t need to be Illuminati, Freemason, or a member of any other Satanic group to be doing this. This is pure ‘horse trading’ to ensure the support that he wants.
But, when the Mormons support you, be careful. Watch your back, ‘cuz one day there will be a knife in it.
Yes, comrade. We haf rekordings of evil Trump kalling Mother Russia for help in destroying glorious revolution. Glorious revolution is good, comrade.
Yup, there’s a psychological operation happening. But, there’s not Russian behind.
Although, there might be some rushin’… as in rushin’ to conclusions.
Hillary is still in trouble?
I’M LOVIN’ IT!!
I really hope that this is true, and not some head-fake, or with some awful strings attached.
So, Kissinger likes Trump?
Or, at least is ready to give him a chance and sees Trump positively?
Not good. Not good at all.
I’m sorry, but Trump is right. And, defense procurement analysts say the same. There has never been a weapons system this expensive. EVER.
And, it does NOT work as advertised.
These guys are serious?
For America to have ANY chance of ‘recovery’, taxes need to be reduced. Unfortunately, there also needs to be a dramatic reduction in spending, but… that ain’t gonna happen.
The Republicans LOVE spending.
Is there a civil war going on within the halls of the Deep State?
Wait. Paul Joseph Watson didn’t drop a single F-bomb in his entire rant.
Now, THAT is improvement! YES!
And, as I have been saying, he speaks the way that I feel.
Leftist Laborously Lousy Lying Liars Lie Libelously!
Actually, this dovetails with what I’ve heard about intelligence training and what I’ve heard about these supposed ‘hacks’.
I would actually have expected something more sophisticated from the Russians.
Unfortunately, I’m afraid that Marcel is absolutely correct. I believe that what is left of history will show that Trump was a master-manipulator. I hope that I am wrong, but there is too much that Trump is doing that screams membership of the Elite.
Is he as bad as Hillary?
Of course not. But the choice between horrifying and less horrifying means that we are in trouble.
And of course, we’re in trouble.
Yeah. That CIA Report that the Russians hacked the US election, for Trump.
Remember that John ‘Allahu Akbar’ Brennan is head of the CIA. You can bet that this ‘report’ came from him.
This ‘Faithless Elector’ business is interesting, and the guy that is wanting to BE a ‘Faithless Elector’ is about a faithless as they come. The guy is a complete turd. And, he’s completely and utterly stupid about his ‘turdness’.
It’s almost as if he doesn’t care that he is caught in his absolute faithlessness.
He is a psychopathic turd of amazing turdness. He is a turd of turds.
And, here is the turd that we are talking about, from the jsnip4 video.
Behold, Stephen Christopher Suprun, turd of turds.
Should you wish to gaze upon how turdy his turdiness is… you will find that he is amazingly disgusting. To truly describe how revoltin he is, would require the use of language that God does not approve of.
The depths of depravity.
Here is what Zerohedge reported earlier in the week on this guy.
There’s a special place in Hell for this guy. It’s big place, with lots of room for all of them.
Sorry, Lindsey, but those ‘hacks’ would have also uncovered the fact that you are a closet homosexual. So, I don’t believe that you were ‘hacked’.
I’m sure that Lindsey’s South Carolina constituents would be very interested in what Mr. Graham does in his free time.
So, Wikileaks is having to prove that it wasn’t the Russians.
The question is whether the Americans can tell the truth, from the lies.
Well, when you pinch ’em in the pocket book, they tend to pay attention.
However, that’s not enough. Hopefully Trump will slash at all the laws, regulations and burdens that are sitting on top of business.
I’m afraid that Bill is right. They could have waited until Trump was in office. And, Bill’s prescription for paying off the debt is sound.
Unfortunately, it would get Trump killed. After all, it’s why Lincoln and JFK were assassinated.
Shocked, SHOCKED I tell you!
It must have been the Russians. The RUSSIANS invaded Michigan and placed those votes there. And the people counting, were Russians too.
IT’S A RUSSIAN PLOT!
I like the last picture in this one. It’s Putin, with the title:
Our New Evil, Diabolical Plot:
You’ll hafta read it to see what the rest is.
Ouch. It looks like Hillary still has something to fear. Hmmm…
Is anyone going to call the Hillary campaign on this?
Is anyone holding their breath?
Mr. Trump, please watch your back. Please.
I do not agree with Nathan’s focus on the word GREAT in a small part of this article. But, for the rest, I emphatically agree. And, just because I don’t agree with thing about the word ‘great’, well… I could be wrong.
Please be careful. The future is not as bright as the Trumpians would have you believe.
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.
The US economy is NOT doing well. In fact, I’m not sure WHAT economy is doing well.
That word, ‘fading’… it isn’t strong enough.
Crashing. Burning. Collapsing. Dead.
THOSE are words that are strong enough. But, other than that quible… it’s a good article.
The economy has been in reverse for a very long time.
They say that Chicago burned down because Mrs. O’Leary’s cow kicked over a lantern. Whether the story is true, is hard to say. Something set off the great Chicago fire.
Today, like the Chicago of almost 150 years ago, our financial system is built with kindling. Dry and ready to burn. It won’t take much to burn it all down. Here’s the last bit of the article:
The reader can decide whether he feels comfortable tying his wealth up in bank deposits, the stock market, pension plans, gold ETF’s, etc. If he concludes that it may be time to “Get out of Chicago,” he would be in the minority. Historically, the great majority tend to believe in the status quo and assume that “planning for the future” means following the advice of bankers and brokers. But, with so many aspects of the economy so close to the edge, the odds of a spark setting off a conflagration are very high.
Of two things we can be certain. The resultant damage caused by the crash will be far more extensive than with the Chicago fire. And in the age of computers, the destruction of wealth will spread far more quickly than the fire.
Editor’s Note: Unfortunately most people have no idea what really happens when the stock market collapses, let alone how to prepare…
The coming economic turmoil is going to be much worse, much longer, and very different than what we’ve seen in the past.
You need to do something. By the time you smell the smoke and see the flames… it’ll be too late.
THIS is the future. THIS will bring the Antichrist. THIS will be The End Of The World As We Know It – TEOTWAWKI.
Are YOU going to be ready for THIS?
PLEASE TREAT THIS SERIOUSLY!!
The challenge of preserving the fruit of your labor, while the government goes after it. And yes, as governments collapse, they WILL attempt to take EVERYTHING that you have.
Remember that the reason why Rome fell was taxation. As the government raised taxes, people just left. They just picked up whatever they could carry, tried to sell what they couldn’t… and left.
Eventually, people couldn’t even sell their land, and just walked away from it.
This happens. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
Will you be ready for this?
I hafta echo that.
The Bull market in bonds is over. Probably until the Lord returns.
Will the stock market do the same?
I’m surprised that it has gone this high. Will it go higher? It very well could. But, I’m not interested in chasing artificial returns from an artificial market. The P/E ratios are just too high with an economic outlook that isn’t.
What about real estate?
Rising interest rates KILL real estate. If you need to sell, do it now. Otherwise, be prepared to sit right where you are as everything falls around you.
Gold and Commodities?
Is there anything else to invest in?
This could get serious, real quick.
China is going down.
GOLD AND SILVER
When economic and financial collapse comes your way, you need something tangible to weather the storm. Right now, I cannot think of anything tangilble that is so fiercely undervalued and universally recognized as gold and silver.
There might be other things that are better. I just can’t see ’em. If you can think of something better, share it with us.
It was recorded five months ago, but I just saw it. It is an excellent discussion of relative values of safe haven investments.
This is where I found the above video.
Like Chris Martenson, just don’t know of any real alternative to gold and silver. There is some talk of ‘bitcoin’ and you could go there, if you want. But, I’m not prepared to trust something that vulnerable to grid-down scenarios.
Just in case you did NOT know what was going on…
There is something about gold that defies logic. It has convinced thousands of people to descend in the tallest elevator in the world mine for it, under terrible conditions.
Logic has nothing to do with it. Just have some.
Let this be a lesson for ya’. In the short term, gold will go down AND up. And, since you can bet that the US government will go the same route as India… it will go up and Up and UP.
Oh, and when it gets to UP… you’ll probably need to sell it before the government takes it away from you. (Which is why I recommend silver.)
This is actually an argument for silver. And, an argument AGAINST BONDS.
I would not want to be a bond fund manager, unless I was paid a LOT of money. Those guys are going to be depressed for a VERY long time.
Okay, I don’t know how far to go with this.
Is this a ‘short term analysis’?
If so, then this is nothing to worry about, because gold will go back.
If it’s a long term analysis, there’s trouble. Will the governments of the world lock down the ownership of gold?
In fact, here in Taiwan, the Bank of Taiwan is now asking for an ID, when selling gold back to them. They didn’t do that before. When my wife told me this, I was troubled. I still am.
Martin Armstrong has been able to predict future events with astonishing accuracy, based upon the models that he has created.
Here are the last few paragraphs of this article:
This is the problem I have been warning about with gold. It is losing it safe haven status for it is getting to the point you cannot travel with it, keep it in a safe deposit box, or show gold with jewelry. In Italy, if it looks like you have excessive jewelry, they pull you over and weigh it at the border.
This is all part of the Hunt for Taxes. India is setting the tone. The danger will be if others follow. Trump would stand in the way of such policies in the United States. But in Europe, we may see the same policies take effect to different degrees. All they need do is claim that terrorists are using gold to fund their operations.
Everything is still on target for the move under $1,000 into next year.
Does this mean that SILVER is the go to ‘safe haven’?
Is there a problem with silver, too?
At least with silver, it has an incredibly strong industrial demand that consumes MASSIVE amounts of silver. Hopefully, if you have silver – which I do – you’ll be okay.
But, I also have some gold.
Should I sell my gold and buy silver?
And no, I am NOT rich. Not even by Taiwan standards. (And yes, I checked.)
I’m in the same boat as the rest of you, and I don’t see many options.
Another view of gold, silver, inflation and a bunch of other stuff. His videos tell me that he’s a good guy. At the very least, he’s smart. He chose gold and silver after much deliberation.
But, is he smarter than Martin Armstrong?
Not many people are smarter than Martin Armstrong. Please pray about what you should do. Always seek the Lord in what you should do.
NO ONE IS SMARTER THAN GOD!
An interesting discussion on manipulation. There is collusion, yes. But, long-term manipulation?
Well, I’ll let Martin describe that.
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.
Lots irony and chuckle. Actually two. Maybe three.
And, there’s even one about Taiwan.
This is more of a ‘feel good’ piece, although it’s funny too.
And, those ‘explosives’?
A shotgun blank. 12 guage.
All she got was a scare. She was lucky that he wasn’t mean-spirited. Well done, Mr. Barrow.
This was one of those after-the-video-is-over recommendations.
Who knew that Mr. T was a born-again Christian?
And, he’s still kickin’ around. Pityin’ fools.
An… INTERESTING …question.
There’s certainly some hope in this one.
This one got a chuckle out of me.
This one has lots of ‘awwwwww’ in it.
Yes, actually a pretty big reason why.
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.
YES! Allah the SOCK PUPPET!
IT’S IN THE Qur’an!!
The fact that human beings fall for the kind of garbage that is Islam… just proves that we human beings are idiots. All of us.
ALL! OF! US! !!
Our only hope is in Jesus Christ.
Unless you LIKE being an idiot.
How is THAT for a gospel message!
(I repeated the above to my long-suffering wife, and she just shook her head.)
This one must have been in response to the bombing of the Coptic church in Egypt.
All that I can say is… THERE’S POPULATION CONTROL IN ISLAM!
And, as is often the case, there’s a zinger at the end of this one.
Um, if you are Jewish… you MIGHT want to know these verses. Just sayin’.
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?
A bit more on the insane madness of Holland. Geert called it madness, and I agree.
Here’s a quote:
“It would have been better if the Dutch state had sent a clear signal [to terrorists] via a Dutch court that we foster a broad notion of the freedom of expression in the Netherlands.” — Paul Cliteur, Professor of Jurisprudence, Leiden University.
The historic dimension of Wilders’s conviction is related not only to the terrible injustice done to this MP, but that it was the Netherlands that, for the first time in Europe, criminalized dissenting opinions about Islam.
“I will never be silent. You will not be able to stop me… And that is what we stand for. For freedom and for our beautiful Netherlands.” — Geert Wilders, Dutch MP and leader of the Party for Freedom (PVV).
“We have a lot of guests who are trying to take over the house.” — Pym Fortuyn, later shot to death to “defend Dutch Muslims from persecution.”
Before being slaughtered, clinging to a basket, Theo van Gogh begged his assassin: “Can we talk about this?” But can we talk?
As to that last one… the answer is NO.
Oh and by the way, do you know what ‘Bolshevik’ means?
I just thought that you’d like to know.
War in the streets?
Yup, ethnos against ethnos.
It really is the Last Days.
I am just dumbfounded by this. The insanity is just too much.
Here’s the summary:
While Geert Wilders was being prosecuted in the Netherlands for talking about “fewer Moroccans” during an election campaign, a state-funded watchdog group says that threatening homosexuals with burning, decapitation and slaughter is just fine, so long as it is Muslims who are making those threats, as the Quran tells them that such behavior is mandated.
“I am still of the view that declaring statistical facts or even sharing an opinion is not a crime if someone doesn’t like it.” – Finns Party politician, Terhi Kiemunki, fined 450 euros for writing of a “culture and law based on a violent, intolerant and oppressive religion.”
In Finland, since the court’s decision, citizens are now required to make a distinction, entirely fictitious, between “Islam” and “radical Islam,” or else they may find themselves prosecuted and fined for “slandering and insulting adherents of the Islamic faith.”
As Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, said, “These descriptions are very ugly, it is offensive and an insult to our religion. There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it.” There are extremist Muslims and non-extremist Muslims, but there is only one Islam.
It is troubling that Western governments are so eager to crack down on anything that vaguely resembles what has erroneously been termed “Islamophobia,” which literally means an irrational fear of Islam.
Considering the violence we have been witnessing, for those Westerners who have studied Islam and listened to what the most influential Islamic scholars have to say, there are quite a few things in Islam of which one legitimately ought to be fearful.
I can understand SOME of the insanity, but not all of it. There’s something that the leaders of the EU are not telling us.
Yes, it IS planned, and they will do their very best to live up to that plan.
Well, since the EU is determined to destroy itself, the Muslim mass migration is only there to help.
Good. May all such as her be arrested. In fact, a one way ticket to the ‘Muslim Holyland’ – Saudi Arabia – sounds like a wonderful idea.
I’m not completely certain of where Black Pigeon Speaks is coming from, in terms of faith. But, I identify with a lot of his point of view. He has an exceptionally clear view of what is going on.
As an expat of 21 years, myself, I understand a lot of what he is saying. And, I was not surprised when he said that he lives in Tokyo. I kinda figured something like that was the case.
He sees to much, to be living in the unreality of America.
Now THAT is a historically appropriate title. That sums up all of European history and what they face.
They shot themselves in the foot, and worked their way up with a full magazine. I’m really struggling with how this could possibly be so.
It’s just so insane.
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.)
Hey, Comrade Obama is bring troops to great war in Syria. Comrade Obama is bring weapons to murderous Muslim thugs.
Is good, comrade. USSA is friend.
Marx, Lenin, Obama is make good picture. Is good for vodka, too. Everyone is drink vodka when Comrade Obama is make big decision.
Okay, the Russian military has its own propaganda efforts to rally support for the military. So, what you see here is a part of that. But, just because it’s propaganda, it doesn’t mean that it’s all a lie.
A lot of this – probably all of it – is truthful. However, since I do not speak Russian, I have no idea about what they are saying. But, what I can say is that the Russian military has done an excellent job of concentrating on training and sophisticated weapons technology.
And you can thank the US Dept. of State for that, and their ill-fated Russo-Georgian War in 2008 – which showed Russia that they needed a leaner, better trained and better equiped military.
I hope that you can understand my complete disgust with the State Department. They’re idiots. From the highest levels, down.
And… no one declares responsibility.
Hear that sound of fabric flapping in the breeze?
That flag is black.
An interesting – and correct – Russian perspective. It starts out like this:
The financial crisis of 2007-2009 effectively terminated the process of globalization.
Remember what the nations say to Gog, in Ezekiel?
Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take the spoil? hast thou assembled thy company to take the prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take great spoil?
– Ezekiel 38:13
And, it starts with a trade war.
Of course they are acting as if there isn’t going to be a ‘World War’. We’re just arguing over when.
There’s a picture of the political landscape in Syria. That country has been destroyed. What’s being fought over are the scraps.
You’ll also notice these two prongs coming up from the southern border.
That’s not from Israel. It’s from Jordan. As the rebels continue to lose… what will happen with Jordan?
Will US and Gulf Arab efforts to overthrow Assad turn to supporting the rebels in the south, into Damascus?
Or, do they mean, ‘ratifying the powers that he has already taken for himself’?
Yeah, I think that’s what they mean.
And, it also means war, sooner than later.
This is what happens when you have bad leadership in an area of strategic importance. Leadership matters.
And, ISIS control of Aleppo?
It looks like it’s over.
Okay. Good, short article.
Now, take the column labelled ‘Moderate Rebels’, and substitute those two words with the word ‘Hamas’.
Then, look at his ‘Comment 4’. He is absolutely correct, and it is something that I have said fairly often – especially when the insurgents actually WANT civilian casualties to parade before the lame-stream media.
So, tell me again how evil Israel is?
The Land of Israel and the People of Israel are at the heart of what is happening in these Last Days. God is at work IN Israel and WITH Israel.
If you are against Israel, then you are a supporter of Islam and Satan.
If you are FOR Israel, then you support the work of God and the victory that God will have over Lucifer.
Please join me in that battle.
Some good information here. Those who have lived in Israel, know all about this.
I don’t recall Bill saying it here, but the ‘salaries’ paid to these fiends from Hell, go to their FAMILIES. These thugs are heroes to their FAMILIES, and then to their communities.
And, among the Arabs – everywhere – FAMILY is EVERYTHING.
Get the picture?
I bet that you hear NONE of this in the Lame Stream media.
There is a quiet, ‘cold war’ going on in the North of Israel, on the border with Lebanon. It has been going on for years. Hizbullah (or Hezbollah) is always probing Israel’s defenses.
Israel understands ‘Eternal Vigilance’.
Now, think about what the US and Europe would have to do, to guard the global oil trade, if Israel wasn’t there to secure OPEC’s left flank.
But, one day, America and the rest of the world will abandon Israel.
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
