PERSONAL COMMENTARY 12-5-11

PERSONAL COMMENTARY

I have thought about writing some commentaries for a very long time. Some people like my thoughts and others are skeptical, but time has proven me correct so far.
It has not played out enough so far to see the entire scenario. I am not a writer, I have no major education like many of you but I often sense and see things that others do not.

I do not have to tell you at this point in time that we are in a great deal of trouble. This country has turned away from G-d and basically threw him under the BUS. Now there will be a terrible price to pay, there is no turning back. I personally have not ever been one of those people. These people that have done this to their creator have no idea the price they are about to pay both in this physical world and in the next world for their sins against G-d. The hypocrites that lie to themselves and pretend they are people of HONOR are fooling no one but themselves, because when you die a recording of your life is played back for you to answer for "ALL" your lies and cheating and indiscretion's.

G-d has now intentionally set the world wide stage for total language confusion among its world leaders but also among its people. It is my belief only loyal and gifted people can and will be able to see the truth. He has basically re invoked the TOWER OF BABEL SCENARIO. This has now brought total chaos to this entire world. All I can comment about is what I see in this country. At this point in time I am not convinced there will be another Presidential election. There are too many variables I continue to see. One EMP attack over KANSAS we go back living in the 1850's. It could even be a false flag attack like the GULF OF TONKIN.

We have some decent people representing us in DC but they get corrupted not only by the old timers who should have retired 20 years ago but also by the pressure of the lobbyists. Its all about money and power, they can't seem to remember G-d always wins and they get a Coffin in the end or their family gets an URN. G-d is infinite and if you bothered to read the first sentence in the book of GENESIS, that alone says it all. We are not living on G-d's time, his world is beyond what we know. In our physical world most pre ordained scenarios happen in increments of 12 physical years. A few examples, it took Hitler 12 years to become Chancellor of Germany from when he started giving speeches in the Beer halls. Hitler was in Power for 12 years. The Chinese calendar is in 12. Our calendar is 12 months. We were in Vietnam for about 12 years when you include the advisers first sent in. How many years from the first Gulf War to the Second Gulf war ? We have been in Afghanistan for over 10 years to protect the POPPY FIELDS and try and get an overland pipeline from the CASPIAN SEA. ITS ALL ABOUT MONEY AND POWER AND OIL.

You say Russia was defeated in Afghanistan. Was it because of US stinger missiles. Now our top of the line young BRAVE American soldiers are coming home without arms and legs to protect who ? You can not negotiate a peace with 28 different tribes, they all have their own leader. In the end we get a Coffin and G-d is still our creator and master of the universe. Read Leviticus 26, verse 19, 20 that says it all. We have been deceived since President Reagan was in office. When that great man died, America died. Then greed became the normal for the people in charge. Had they been limited to no more than two terms things may have been different. I personally believe all that is now happening is BIBLICAL and PRE ORDAINED. The final battle of the GOGUMAGOG war will soon take place in the VALLEY OF JEZREEL, 55 miles North of Jerusalem.

How many times now do you hear an ad to buy GOLD. Its all BS. You can NOT eat GOLD. In hard times who will accept GOLD for food, gas, or water ? NO ONE. IN 1933 FDR SIGNED THE GOLD CONFISCATION ACT. No AMERICAN was allowed to own over $100.00 worth of GOLD. It was confiscated by the US GOVERNMENT. THIS WAS DONE BY EXECUTIVE ORDER. This could be re enacted by the signature of the current President by another Executive order at any time day or night, even at 3am in the morning.

I suggest you never use an "ELECTRONIC" lock or safe. If you keep valuables in a Bank safety deposit vault, remember it we get hit by an EMP device they will not be able to open that Bank, safe, or vault. You will lose everything in there you thought was so valuable. Buy a small home fire proof safe with a key and if necessary bury it.

If you decide this commentary is helpful in your life let me know and I will write another one. I made 23 videos that are gun related that I turned over to my son CHARLES. He makes the copies, light scribes them and I have no part of any sales but it helps him.

WAR IN EUROPE

Europe—Hidden Paths to Chaos
November 29, 2011 | From theTrumpet.com
One has to understand national character to figure what is going on in Europe. By Ron Fraser

“Germany, once again … holds the weapons for the entire continent’s suicide in its hands”—if it doesn’t change its position, “there will be a catastrophe.”

That is the view of Jacques Attali, former adviser to ex-French President Fran├žois Mitterrand and reputed to be “one of the world’s top 100 public intellectuals” (Foreign Policy Magazine, May/June 2008).

Attali’s view of Germany instigating a situation that has brought Europe yet once again, for the third time within less than a century, to the brink of catastrophe, is in direct accordance with the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche’s view of the German national character.

In Beyond Good and Evil (first published in 1886, during the period of the second German Reich), Nietzsche described that character thus: “As a people of the most monstrous mixture and medley of races, … as ‘people of the middle’ in every sense, the Germans are more incomprehensible, comprehensive, contradictory, unknown, incalculable, surprising, even frightening than other people are to themselves: They elude definition ….”

Nietzsche spoke of the “German soul …; its disorder has a good deal of the attraction of the mysterious; the German is an expert on secret paths to chaos.”

In a classic summation of a national character that has played out constantly in German politics since the time of the archetypal Prussian politician Bismarck, Nietzsche declared, “It is not for nothing that one is called the ‘tiusche’ Volk, the Tausche-Volk, deceiver people.”

The problem with most analysts who attempt to daily make sense of what German elites are truly up to amid Europe’s greatest crisis in almost 70 years is that they fail to take note of the fundamental national character of the German volk!

Philospher George Santanyana famously mused that “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

Any observation of current events in Europe today that is not cognizant of its history and especially the national character of its peoples will fail abysmally to predict a reliable outcome of those events.

Yet, even with a good understanding of Europe’s tumultuous history and of the innate individual national character of its peoples, without inerrant, divinely revealed Bible prophecy, no estimation of any final outcome of events in Europe—or any other region of the world for that matter—can be reliable.

If you have not yet studied our book The United States and Britain in Prophecy, then you need to do so without delay. Well over 5 million copies have been distributed to date. That book renders in simple language the provable facts about the origin, national characteristics, history and the future of the Anglo-Saxon peoples.

Not only that, it also exposes another piece of provable history that has vital significance in adding to our understanding of the identity and the national character of the very peoples which dominate Europe today! This is knowledge that is so crucial to understanding why Europe is “condemned to repeat,” just one more time, the horrors of the worst parts of its history, its Holy Roman history—only more so!

But that book also reveals that the peace Europe has sought, and been largely denied, especially under repeated resurrections of the Holy Roman Empire, is soon to break out not only across that continent, but across the entire globe!

Get your own copy of that book today. It will help you really understand why today’s chaos in Europe, and just where it is ultimately leading!

THE FORTIES ARE NOW

THE FORTIES ARE NOW
October 14, 2011

by Barry Chamish

IMG_0657.jpg


We begin with a wedding in 1948. In the photo above are my grandparents, parents, brother, two aunts and one uncle. In the center is the bride, Freda, standing beside her mother Manya Frankel. I don't know if you can see it, but there are real unwanted emotions staring at you. Not four years earlier, many of my grandmothers' family, the Resniks, were slaughtered like animals, mostly in a Polish town called Miedzyrzec. I now know how it happened because Aunt Frida asked her mother where her family were from and she traced the records of the dead.

My last visit to Aunt Freda was when I was in New York a few years ago. I used the time to let her tell me about my maternal family roots. Manya arrived with her parents in Brooklyn around the time of the First World War, married Sam Frankel and had four children. When her parents decided to move to a Midwestern city with her sisters, she joined them.

Frida told me the married names of her sisters, Kosatzky, Marmel, Fireman and that they initially moved to nearby farm towns. Only Freda disliked prairie life so much that she moved back to Brooklyn.

If you look hard, there are two other emotions in the photo, joy and fear. Israel had declared its nationhood, a small reward in an awful decade.The Jews there faced the real possibility of being defeated and turning into the second Holocaust. My family put all their spare time and thoughts into working locally to save Israel. As happy a bride as was Freda, even her wedding day was haunted by recent massacres and the threat of another one any day.

When Freda died recently, she left this photo and a searing document telling how her mother's family met their heartless demise. As I read it, me, being who I am, saw awful parallels with Israel today. See if you agree.

Miedzyrzec prided itself on its religious life:
Unlike the general area, where most of the Jews tended to be part of various Hassidic sects, the majority of the community in Miedryrzec were Mitnagdim (those who opposed the Hassidim). The relationship between the Hassidim and the Mitnagdim was amicable. At one point the Hassidic Rabbi Yechiel Michael Halperin of Kuzmier served as the Rabbi of Miedzyrzec. Only during the 19th century, when Rabbi Yom Tov Raphael Lippman, an extreme Mitnagid, served as Rabbi, did an intense argument occur which culminated in Rabbi Lippman placing the Hassidim in cherem (excommunication). As a consequence of his action Rabbi Lippman was forced to leave the community and things reverted to normal.

Among the other important Rabbis were Rabbi Zvi Hirsch who served during the end of the 16th century, Rabbi Natan Netta Katzenelbogen who came to live inEretz Yisrael and died there in 1689, Rabbi Yehoshua Lieb Diskin who came to live in Eretz Yisrael and established the Diskin Orphanage, and Rabbi Issa Shapira who came in 1930. Rabbi Yitzhak Yakov Wachtfogel was a rabbi in Meah Shearim in Jerusalem, and Rabbi Shimon Yakov Halevi who was a rabbi in Tel Aviv, were both born in Miedryrzec.

Miedryrzec was a town that opposed Hasidim but the villages around it were mostly Hasidic. During the Holocaust, Miedryrzec was a holding center for the district's doomed Jews, and the Hasidim were crowded into the new ghetto along with the Mitnagdim. Ignoring obvious distinctions, to me this is the equivalent of the Hasidim and religious Zionists huddled together in the dying gasps of Judea and Samaria. The difference between the two groups in the forties is that some Mitnagdim survived, while the Hasidim were all but wiped out completely.

The Germans entered the city on the 13th of September 1939, and they were replaced twelve days later, by the Russians on September 25. The Red Army was only there for two weeks and with their retreat some 2000 young Jews managed to join them. The Wehrmacht reconquered the city on October 9, and on the 20th of October, the city was transferred into the hands of the Gestapo.

Why didn't the Hasidim youth retreat with the Russians? Everyone knows the answer because the exact same delusions are alive today in Israel. Their rabbis undoubtedly told them that God wouldn't abandon them and would soon send his Messiah. In actuality, it appears that God did abandon them and that no Messiah showed up. And no matter how many justifications have been fabricated to make Israel different, that the slaughter can never return, the Hasidim are in the exact same boat. And the rest of us could share the fate of the Jews who stayed in Miedryrzec.

Among the Nazi groups that were stationed in the city there were the Gendarmerie and the Schupo, (German police) who would later be responsible for murdering the Jews of Miedryrzec. Among the gendarmes was Sergeant Franz Bauer, who personally killed 1000 of the Jewish residents. In the summer of 1940 six separate work camps were set up where some 2000 Jews worked in terrible conditions. Many of the workers died of hunger and cold. The Jews no longer had any rights. Jewish factories were expropriated, among them the brush factory. Other factories were transferred to polish ownership. Jewish refugees continually came from Krakow and the surrounding area. In December 1941 Jews were ordered to hand over all of their fur coats to the Nazi's. Some 20 Jews were murdered on the city streets and another 75 died during the searches that were carried out by Jewish prisoners of War from the Polish army that were specially brought to the city...

On August 25 and 26 the first action occurred. 10,000 Jews were brutally assembled in the town square. They were forcibly marched to the train station where they were put on 52 cattle cars (shipment 566 according to the German inventory) and sent to Treblinka.
..The Second action took place between October 6 and 9. Some 7000 Jews were forcibly assembled in the town square. At this stage everyone knew what their fate was. The Czienki brothers, who managed to escape from Treblinka, informed the Judenrat of Miedzyrzec and other Jewish ghettos about the extermination that was taking place. The head of the Judenrat told the Gestapo about the brothers and they were shot on one of the small streets of the city.

Between October 27 and 29 and November 7 and 8 two actions took place without respite. The Germans, assisted by the Jewish police conducted searches in the Ghetto. Many Jews were captured and shot on sight. Others were sent to camps. At this time many lost their will to live and simply turned themselves over to the Germans.

We must face the fact: the Nazis organized Jews to run the local government, the Judenrat, and its Jewish police. Without their help, the Holocaust would have gone far slower and perhaps millions would have survived. Many studies have shown that these men were selected from amongst the Jews with low standing in the community and who relished the sudden rise in their social status. The lesson learned was that certain Jews were happy to do the dirty work of outsiders determined to destroy Judaism. These are the leaders of Israel! Israelis don't understand that their leaders, long before, had sold their souls to today's Nazis and were manipulated into power. I could but won't repeat my solid proofs at this time but just know, the Oslo "peace" Accord was the mayor of Miedryrzec inviting the Gestapo to come in and take care of Jewish security.

On May 2 and 3, 1943, after a long hiatus, a fifth action took place. Some 3000 Jews were captured and sent to different camps. Approximately 200 caught trying to hide, were marched to the cemetery, forced to undress, and were then shot. A Jewish youth named Chaim Foga attacked a German officer and threw acid in his face. On that day the entire Judenrat and Jewish police were shot to death.

In this horrific report, I personally relate to Chaim Foga. He knew every Jew was a walking corpse and he fought the executioner. As a result, he ended the delusions of the Jews
working for the Nazis. The leaders of Israel should know, there is no escape for you either.

THE BEGINNING OF THE END

A Quick Four Part Scenario for Economic Collapse

There really is no way of knowing how precisely HaShem is going to bring about the economic collapse of Western Civilization in 5772. It can either happen abruptly in 12 month segments, or it might be catastrophic and take place during the course of the25 to 30 day period from today, Hoshana Rabbah, until the middle of Cheshvan. I am leaning toward the catastrophic collapse for two reasons.

1. There is much that should take place this year besides the economic collapse of Western Civilization to make the world a spiritually healthier place to live. So a quick collapse will allow time for these other things to happen.

2. Yosef when he was thrown into a pit by his brothers was in a pit with snakes and scorpions, but he miraculously survived the dangers. The snake as was presented in the previous post about Greece being the face of Rome corresponds to the Primordial snake of Rosh HaShana and therefore the month of Tishrei. The Scorpion is the Mazal for the month of Cheshvan. This seems to be an ancient hint that in the year that Mashiach ben Yosef shows up, the months of collapse are Tishrei and Cheshvan.

So here is a quick scenario for a catastrophic collapse which might possibly occur in this fashion:

Europe is now spinning out of control. PM Merkel of Germany and the banks are rebelling against excusing more debt losses. Things are looking quite probable for chaos when the European Union meets on Sunday, October 23rd. Their self-imposed deadline is Oct. 23rd which is strange because that is a Sunday. But that is their deadline. This should worsen in stages over the next four weeks.

1. This week because the last 3 days of Sukkot only Edom is judged and Hoshana Rabba which seals the judgment for the nations of the world. According to the Vilna Gaon, the 1st, 2nd, and 4th days of Sukkot are reserved for the children of Ketura (Hinduism and Buddhism) and the children of Yishmael (Islam). The 3rd, 5th, 6th, and 7th days of Sukkot are reserved for Edom. So on the third day of Sukkot, the day of tiffereth (charisma), it was Shabbat, and there was large scale rioting in the streets of Rome. Italy of the G-8 economic powers is the nation most tied to Edom's version of tiffereth. On the 5th day of Sukkot, this past Monday, Merkel announced that there is no agreement in sight for unity within the EU to somehow raise over 2 trillion Euro to prevent the collapse of the Eurozone at the October 23rd meeting. Germany is most associated with Edom's version of hod (glory) since hod as discussed before is most associated with this worldly prosperity. As we see with modern day athletes, whoever gets the glory also gets the money. Then there is Malkhut (kingship) the 7th sefirah associated with the United States and Canada who are a combination of France (chessed) and Great Britain (Din or Gevurah) in their makeups. Think of France being the right shoulder and Great Britain the left shoulder of an upside down triangle, and the US and Canada being the point. So who knows what will occur later today if anything associated with the US and Canada on Hoshana Rabbah or on Shmini Atzereth. It could be nothing specifically since the collapse will probably be triggered by nations in the Eurozone. So if anything happens on Hoshana Rabba itself, it may revolve around coincident problems in France and Great Britain at the same time. The 6th sefirah yesod (foundation) in Edom is most associated with Russia. Since Russia has no real clout in the EU, the 6th day of Sukkot passed without incident.

2. (Stage 2) next week actually starting on Shmini Atzereth itself because after Hoshana Rabba, HaShem wants to start blessing Klal Yisrael on the judgment for the New Year. So all the good from the new judgement starts to flow on Shmini Atzereth. This Shabbat is Shabbat Bereishit when we bless the New Moon for Cheshvan. So the flow for Cheshvan actually begins this weekend before Cheshvan is actualized with the New Moon on the following Friday and Shabbat, October 28 and 29.

3. After Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan because Edom has run out of bracha from the Tal Min HaShamayim (Dew from Heaven) for the New Year and for all time, Western Civilization will simply run out of spiritual gas. The month of Tishrei 5772 is actually judged on the previous year's judgment. So the loss of bracha for Edom only becomes evident after Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan. In short all the blessing on Edom for all of human history might simply come to an end at the end of this Tishrei. At this point all Edom will have left is the shmanei ha'aretz (the oil of the earth) which they have as long as the US keeps troops in Iraq and at the pivotal port facility of Batzrah at the confluence of 2 or the 4 rivers that come out of the Garden of Eden. All the talk about the US actually leaving Iraq will necessarily have to come to an end when it becomes clear that the US will have no physical gas for its civilization if Persia gains hegemony over the Shiite areas of Iraq and Saudi Arabia. This will become more obvious when Western Civilization runs out of the spiritual gas (the dew from the mouth of G-d) at the end of the month of Tishrei 5772.

4. In some cases the Din for the New month is held in abeyance until the tenth of each month when it is finally sealed. This is especially true for bainoni nations such as the United States who have tremendous merits for all the good that they have done in history as a force for good in the world along with all of negative things that they did when goodness came into conflict with making money. Under such circumstances where there has been a direct conflict between this worldly prosperity and the will of G-d, America has always chosen prosperity over goodness. So it is a 2/3rds nation. 2/3 of the time when America could be good without sacrificing its prosperity, America chose to be good. Yet, the 1/3 of the time when there was a direct conflict between the two, America chose the evil path. This makes the US a bainoni nation (a nation where the scales of justice are weighted towards its goodness and its wickedness. This would seem to indicate that Europe will collapse first, and America might be dragged down a couple of weeks later.

Again this is a possible scenario for a quick collapse. I am not saying that this is precisely how it will occur. Just prepare yourself for this type of catastrophe.

So those are the four stages. We are already seeing stage one.

END OF DAYS 10-11-10

Zecharia 14 and the Trail to Hope

This article is appearing both on Mystical Paths and the End of Days blog in two parts or more.

I have not written for a while because my writing was dependent on the fact that former President George W. Bush would turn out to be Gog, and when this did not occur, I withdrew from writing. But now signs of hope have begun to reappear that the end of days is near and the final redemption is at our doorstep. During Nisan of 5770, the drive by President Obama to divide Jerusalem hit us like a breath of fresh air. As horrible and ominous as this sounds, the fact that the prophet Zechariah in chapters 12 and 14 predicts this 2400 years ago as the clanging of a redemption in its time is enough to calm the nerves as the nations of the world gather against Jerusalem. No more years and years of death and maiming. How many hundreds have died in the Al Aqsa Intafada? How many thousands have been maimed for life? Sanhedrin 98b , Tosafot on Avodah Zarah 2b, and Rav Eibeschutz say that the dislocations will last no longer than nine months once and if they occur that is, until Persia falls into the hands of Edom (the West) or until Edom rules the world for nine months. It may be painful once these dislocations occur if they have to occur. But which is worse: another ten years of a third intifada where thousands more would die, G-d forbid, or something quick where HaShem could fight the nations that come against Yerushalayim. The Oslo War will quickly end as HaShem performs his miracles to redeem his chosen nation. Let's look at the facts that are inherent in the prophetic scenario.

Fact #1: Zecharia 14:1-2 Behold a day is coming for HaShem, when your spoils will be divided up in your midst. I will gather all the nations (of the world) to Yerushalayim for the war; the city will be captured, the houses will be pillaged and the women will be violated; HALF of the city will go out into exile, but the rest of the people will not be eliminated from the city. How could he, the prophet, have known that this is precisely what the nations of the world would want 2,400 years later? This is precisely Obama's, the EU's, Russia's, and the UN's goal. In their minds East Yerushalayim is an illegal Israeli settlement. They accept West Yerushalayim as being part of Israel. So they have no intention of sending those residents into exile. Again how could he have known?

Fact #2: Zecharia 14:10 The entire land will change to a plain, from GEVA to RIMMON, south of Yerushalayim.... These are precisely the geographic limits of modern Yerushalayim. The northern most border of Jewish Yerushalayim is just outside the separation fence between Yerushalayim and the Shomron. It is the community of Geva Binyamin known to the locals as Geva for short (a.k.a. Adam). The southern most community inside the separation fence south of Yerushalayim is Efrat. It is a city built on seven hills. The southern most hill in Efrat is Givat Rimmon (Pomegranate Hill). In short Jewish Yerushalayim stretches from Geva in the north to Givat Rimmon in the south. Again 2,400 years ago how could the prophet have known? How could he have known?

Fact #3: Zecharia 12:2 ...Also Yehudah will take part in the siege of Yerushalayim. Also Zecharia 14:14 Also Yehudah will wage war against Yerushalayim... From J Street in America to Peace Now, from former PM Olmert to the present PM Netanyahu there is a turning against Jewish sovereignty over 270,000 Arabs in East Yerushalayim. There is an acceptance of the fact that a Palestinian State will have its capital there. Yet, the logistics are a nightmare. There are over 200,000 Jews living beyond the 67 border in Yerushalayim in twelve Jewish neighborhoods. How can the Eastern, Northern, and Southern parts of the Capital city be divided up by establishing different water mains, sewage tunnels, and electrical grids one for Israel and another for Palestine? How would international borders between intertwined neighborhoods be set up? The traffic and road blocks in the "eastern" half of the city would be a nightmare making commerce and moving around impossible. Would Jews living in majority Arab neighborhoods have to leave their properties behind a second time, once in 1948 and once again now? Of course they would simply because it would be unsafe for them to remain. I am sure there would be international condemnation for the reverse situation. Arabs living in majority Jewish neighborhoods would surely be allowed to keep their properties in both eastern and western parts of the city. Then of course there is the Temple Mount where the Muslim Wakf has systematically gone about destroying every piece of evidence that two Jewish Temples once stood up there. Under UN auspices how much worse would the situation be? Yet Jews want to divide the City. Do you think that the NATO and Russian troops that come to "protect" the new State of Palestine will allow the Jews to remain beyond the 1967 borders in Yerushalayim? What will these naive Jews do then? Will they wring their hands, or will they say that Jews should never have been there to begin with?

Again how did Zecharia know this 2400 years ago? How did he know that Jews would turn on Jews who live in Yerushalayim?

Fact #4: Zecharia 12:3 It shall be on that day that I will make Yerushalayim for all the peoples a burdensome stone, all whose bearers become lacerated; and all the nations of the world will gather against it. On March 9th, 2010 Israel's Interior Ministry announced the approval of building 1600 housing units in Ramat Shlomo, a neighborhood beyond the 1967 border in Northern Yerushalayim. American Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton roundly condemned "the expansion of Jewish settlements in occupied territory" on the day that Biden was visiting Israel. Prior to this Netanyahu had specifically mentioned to the world that the ongoing building freeze in Judea and Samaria did not include the annexed parts of Yerushalayim, that building in "East" Jerusalem would continue unabated. Yerushalayim is at the heart of the Jewish people, and nobody was going to tell us whether or not we could or could not build there. Yet on March 31st, 2010 Obama demanded a four month "East Jerusalem" building freeze in exchange for pressuring PA President Mahmoud Abbas to talk directly with Israel. On April 26th, 2010 it was reported by the Associated Press that sometime after Obama's March 31st demand that Jews stop building in Yerushalayim beyond the 1967 border, Netanyahu quietly stopped the advancement of all building projects in that part of Yerushalayim. This was meant to mend fences with the Obama Administration and to stop all of the public condemnations of Israel for expanding neighborhoods in "East Jerusalem". In the midst of all this brouhaha tragedy strikes the American Gulf Coast. On April 20th, 2010 the Deepwater Horizon oil platform blew up causing the worst underwater oil spill in world history. It lasted until July 15th, 2010 with repeated attempts to cap the underwater gusher ending in abject failure time and time again. Each time a promise was made by British Petroleum that the underwater gusher could be stopped, the attempts would fail for one reason or another. Until on July 15th it was finally capped. Not so coincidently on July 12th, 2010, Netanyahu ended the freeze in East Jerusalem with the approval of 32 new housing units in Pisgat Ze'ev. This came on the heels of a July 6th meeting where Obama actually treated Netanyahu like a mentsch after a disgraceful rebuke at their previous meeting on March 23rd when Netanyahu was not even invited to have dinner. So here we have it. Obama and Company freeze Jewish growth in Yerushalayim in early April 2010. The worst underwater oil spill in world history commences on April 20th. Obama for now in order to raise Jewish money for Democratic candidates reverses his earlier disrespectful behavior on July 6th. Building in all of Yerushalayim recommences on July 12th. BP caps the underwater gusher on July 15th after a series of repeated failures to do so. America was truly lacerated by its attempt to decide who has the right to live in all parts of Yerushalayim. If this is what happens with a building freeze, what will happen when NATO and Russian troops start removing Jews from their homes. One can only begin to imagine. The final outcome is known though. Zecharia 14:12-13 This will be the plague with which HaShem will strike all the peoples that have organized against Yerushalayim: Each one's flesh will melt away while he is standing on his feet; each one's eyes will melt away in their sockets; and each one's tongue will melt away in their mouths. It shall be on that day that there will be a great panic of HaShem among them; each one will grab the hand of his fellow, and his hand will be raised up against the hand of his fellow. Again how did the prophet know, how did he know?


Fact #5: Ezekiel 38:3-6 Say: Thus said the L-rd Elokim: Behold I am against you Gog, the prince, leader of Meshech and Tubal. I will lead you astray, and I will place hooks into your cheeks and bring you out wit your entire army, horses and riders, all of them clothed in splendor, a vast assembly, with buckler and shield, all of them wielding swords. Persia, Cush, and Put will be with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all her cohorts, the house of Togarmah in the uttermost parts of the north, and all its cohorts - many peoples will be with you.

RIOTING IN AMERICA

The Riots Are Getting Closer
October 4, 2011 | From theTrumpet.com
Something big is about to happen, says an Obama activist. Expect a revolution—expect an “Arab Spring” in America.

October could be a wild and dangerous month. Stock markets are acting like there is another hidden Lehman Brothers ready to explode. The euro is plummeting. The S&P is hitting new lows. Greece is desperately trying to pay impossible bills. Europe’s biggest banks are flirting with bankruptcy. The eurozone appears to be disintegrating.

Back in America, things are getting more friable too.

“October is going to be the turning point,” said Van Jones, the disgraced former Obama administration “green jobs czar.” America is about to experience “an American fall, an American autumn, just like we saw the Arab Spring,” he said on Thursday.

“You can see it right now with these young people on Wall Street. … We’re going to have an October offensive to take back the American Dream and to rescue America’s middle class.”

On Saturday, 700 “Occupy Wall Street” activists were arrested for jamming up the Brooklyn Bridge in order to gain media attention. The protesters chanted slogans like “Jobs Not Cuts” and carried signs such as “Eat the Rich.”

The protests may be spreading now, too. Smaller demonstrations in Chicago, Denver and Los Angeles were also reported over the weekend, with people protesting everything from higher gas prices to lack of medical insurance.

So far, no one organization seems to be driving it. But that may be about to change.

If Van Jones has his way, these relatively peaceful protests will be only the beginning. Van Jones is in the midst of a dramatic push to establish an alliance of labor unions, environmentalists, minority groups, globalists and angry youth protesters to “counterbalance” the growing strength of the Tea Party movement.

Yesterday, today and tomorrow, Van Jones is taking part in a huge summit to create an alliance of “progressive” forces to push the nation’s agenda further left. It’s called the “American Dream Movement,” says Jones. Some unions have already begun providing support for the protesters.

But where would Jones’s “American Dream” really take America?

Van Jones, a reportedly reformed communist, is the founder of the radical black empowerment group Color of Change. According to this group’s website, not only does the U.S. government not represent black Americans, it purposefully left hundreds of thousands of black and minority people “behind to die” in New Orleans because they were not white.

He also has strong views about the war in Iraq, which he says was just a pretext to get the oil.

According to Van Jones, America has a huge debt it needs to repay its minority groups. He said Native Americans, for example, had been pushed down and locked out of the pollution-based economy and needed to be lifted up in his new green economy. America needs to give them back their stolen land, wealth, dignity and respect they deserve, he said. The government needs to make sure women get paid more. And it needs to stop purposefully spraying chemicals on and poisoning “our immigrant brothers and sisters to get the food we want to eat.”

It is about “social justice,” says Jones. And that means monetary payments and legislated advantages for repressed racial and sexual minorities.

Jones also gained notoriety for being associated with the “9/11 Truther” organization that claims the U.S. government was involved with causing the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He has since said his name was appropriated by the group without his consent.

But perhaps most notably, Jones was also a founding member of storm (Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement), a radical Marxist organization committed to creating revolution in America. One publication produced by the now disbanded storm claimed the organization looked “towards the revolutionary traditions of Third World communism and found valuable and inspiring models for revolutionary change.”

Is today Van Jones’s moment? Will he be able to help found another organization that will finally accomplish his goals? In a 2008 Uprising Radio interview, he said America needed a “complete revolution” to “transform the whole society” away from capitalism. Will he be able to channel the outrage manifest in the Wall Street riots, and the bad economy, toward his goal?

Mr. Jones certainly seems to think so. In a February article he said the nation needed to look to the union heroes in Madison, Wisconsin, for inspiration. The “spirit of Madison” needs to spread to all 50 states, he said.

He said a “rainbow force” of unions, veterans, students, faith leaders, civil rights fighters, women’s rights champions, immigrant rights promoters, lesbians, homosexuals, bisexuals, transgenders, those questioning their sexual orientation, environmentalists, academics, artists, celebrities, community activists, elected officials and more were joining forces to stand up “for what’s right.”

And what exactly is right? Jones elucidated in his Huffington Post article “Introducing the ‘American Dream’ Movement.” It includes:

  • Reducing government spending by cutting “corporate welfare” for oil, agriculture and military companies—but not for heavily subsidized green energy companies.
  • Protecting the “heart and soul of America” by empowering teachers, nurses and first responder unions.
  • Guaranteeing “the health, safety and success of our children and communities by leaving the muscle and bone of America’s communities intact”—whatever that means. It is possibly a reference to giving illegal immigrants immunity from deportation.
  • Opposing any changes to union “collective bargaining” laws, which are really “taxpayer extortion” laws.

These are not extreme ideas—they are “commonsense ideas” that can rally Americans to once again stand up and dream, he says. People can take comfort knowing that this great nation “will ultimately pull its answers—not from its ideological extremes—but from its deep, moral center,” just like the Wisconsin union workers did.

“Make no mistake about it: This is our ‘Tea Party’ moment,” says Jones.

America is indeed verging on a pivotal moment in history. The nation is divided, it is financially broke, radicals are reaching for power, disgruntled masses are ready to be manipulated—and most important of all, despite what Van Jones claims, there is no “deep, moral center” in America that will magically save it.

America’s “deep, moral center” may have existed in the past, but it is long gone.

The good news is there are answers to America’s economic, social, political, and moral problems—but they will not come from within itself. The answers are there if anyone is willing to really look for them. You just have to go to the Source of morals.

America needs a real moral revolution—that is true. But if we are not careful, the American Dream Movement could quickly become an American autumn nightmare.

THE COMING RIOTS

Blood in the Streets
Understand the significance of the shocking violence hitting Britain and America.By Philip Nice

“America, Britain and Israel have a terrible problem on their hands: violence. Violence from domestic troubles like race riots—violence from terrorist attacks. Many people have been affected by this scourge in these countries. I believe they are much more likely to recognize the seriousness of this issue. If you have not been personally affected, it is easy to want to pass such problems off as isolated incidents. In this chapter, I will show you that this violence is a much more serious danger than most people would ever imagine!”

Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry wrote those timely words—in 2002. That was years before London burned and sporadic mobs pillaged American cities in the summer of 2011. And even years before race became a more openly divisive issue in the 2008 U.S. presidential elections.

His first edition of the same booklet strongly emphasized the racial riots in Los Angeles with a bold “L.A. Riots—Only the Beginning!” chapter that proclaimed, “As the economy grows worse, or is under siege, the rioters are going to burn more and more ….” That was written in 1992. Mr. Flurry understood then that this seemingly isolated problem was widespread and bound to grow.

When you measure foresight like that in terms of decades, not 24-hour news cycles, it is worthwhile to ask, how did he know?

Back then, such violence seemed limited, isolated—a 100-year storm, if you will. Nations like the United States and Britain were civilized and wealthy and largely seen as post-racial.

But there was something ugly under the surface. Something less isolated and more dangerous than most of us thought. And someday it could erupt.

That Day Is Here

Racial tension is ingrained in American history, and it is part of a bigger unsolved problem that is getting very ugly, very fast. We do not know how to rule ourselves—or even preserve a stable society. The past year has introduced us to some brazen examples of this: Flash-mob robberies, anarchist-style beatings and vandalism have broken out in cities across the country.

In December, dozens of African-American teens at a Florida movie theater were thrown out by management after another moviegoer told them to stop making noise and talking on their phones during the show. But the throng waited until the man and his wife came out to the parking lot, then battered both of them and even hit police officers who arrived on the scene. Frederico Freire, a marine, had just arrived back in town from a tour in Iraq; the couple were on their first date together since he left.

In February, as many as 50 young people in St. Paul, Minnesota, swarmed into a convenience store, assaulted a clerk, and then looted the store. It was the second time in four months that this had happened in the city.

In April, another mob of about 20 descended on a clothing store in Washington, d.c., and quickly grabbed about $20,000 worth of merchandise before fleeing in every direction.

In May, a group of New York teenagers used social media to coordinate an attack on a restaurant, showing up in broad daylight and just ransacking the place unprovoked, kicking over tables, flinging chairs at employees and destroying equipment. Then they grabbed some food and drink and left as abruptly as they had arrived.

Chicago has also had several recent incidents of hoodlums attacking people unprovoked. The mayhem has been so bad that tourists have been told to avoid the Magnificent Mile, Michigan Avenue’s premiere shopping and dining district. In spite of budgets and forces being stretched thin, additional police have been called in to Chicago, and some lawmakers have considered deploying the Illinois National Guard.

During a Fourth of July celebration in Milwaukee’s Kilbourn Reservoir Park, some 60 young African-Americans beat and robbed a smaller group who had been watching fireworks. One of the victims remembers being punched in the face before having her debit card and cell phone stolen. “They just said ‘Oh, white girl bleeds a lot,’” she recalled. There is evidence that the same mob had just come from rushing into one or possibly two nearby convenience stores and gleefully stealing everything they could carry as security cameras and shocked paying customers looked on.

In August, Kansas City finally responded to its own ongoing plague: huge crowds of unsupervised teens and children as young as 7 roaming the streets until long after midnight and intimidating visitors in its upscale plaza district. City government finally slapped a 9 p.m. curfew on the kids after the mayor toured the area to see if it was as bad as people said, and shots were fired about 50 yards away, wounding a 16-year-old, a 15-year-old and a 13-year-old.

The worst race riot in Wisconsin history occurred on August 4 during the opening night of the Wisconsin State Fair. As darkness fell over the fairgrounds, hundreds of black youths swarmed into the parking lot, seeking out Caucasian fairgoers and assaulting them, smashing car windows, throwing rocks and beating passersby with whatever blunt instruments were available. An Iraq war veteran compared the scene to a combat zone. The teens even attacked the few police officers who were on site.

This trend was also encapsulated in “the city of brotherly love,” which has been plagued by mobs of lower-income teens meeting at predetermined locations to rampage through the streets and cause mayhem. In late July, 20 to 30 youths descended on Philadelphia’s Center City after dark to beat and rob bystanders. One man was knocked to the ground and savagely kicked, his skull fractured. In August, after two years of the barbarity, Mayor Michael A. Nutter imposed a curfew on all minors and delivered a blunt message to fellow African-American parents and a stinging rebuke to their out-of-control children, saying they had damaged the reputation of their own race (article, page 33).

Many of these chaotic attacks occurred in the most upscale parts of America’s greatest cities. Some occurred in broad daylight, most were perpetrated by youths who were not so poor that they couldn’t afford smart phones to coordinate the mayhem, and almost all were shockingly senseless.

The Burning of London

Across the Atlantic lies a world city among world cities, once capital of a great empire, center of finance and culture, and a model for civility. It also happens to be scheduled to host the 2012 Summer Olympics in less than a year. But right now, London is synonymous with something else altogether.

On August 4, police officers in the Tottenham neighborhood shot and killed a known suspect who was apparently armed. A group subsequently responded to the death of Mark Duggan, who was black, with a peaceful march to the police station to protest the shooting. But this soon gave way to vicious mobs of young people “demanding justice” L.A. 1992-style, by smashing windows, torching businesses and homes, fighting police, stealing merchandise, assaulting citizens and even murdering people.

Soon looters and their victims included all different ethnicities. It was no longer about anger or justice—it was about getting in and out through a smashed window with a tv. An entire class of people had figured out that if they went wild, only a few of them could be stopped. And if they could coordinate using smart phones and social media, they could really do some damage before calling it a night.

Police were hesitant to respond. Commentator David Green pointed out, “[T]he police have been hyper-sensitive about race. This attitude has now become so paradoxical that they find themselves standing aside when members of ethnic minorities are being harmed. The people who ran shops, or who lived in the flats above, were not given the protection they deserved.”

After quoting some of the awkward guidelines given to police, he wrote, “In this kind of atmosphere, it’s not surprising that officers in charge of a riot think it safer to wait for orders from the top rather than use their discretion to protect the public without fear or favor.”

Authorities feared that a strong response would ignite more riots. Yet more riots ignited. Britain’s cities were officially out of control: Birmingham, Bristol, Liverpool, Manchester and about 10 other urban centers. By the end of it, 16 people had been injured and five people had been murdered, including a 68-year-old man whose only offense was trying to stamp out an arsonist’s fire that had been set in a trash bin. The outburst of senselessness also cost hundreds of millions of pounds’ worth of damage to a national economy already over the edge.

And the chaos came while times are still good, meals are still easy to come by, and store shelves are still full (of things to loot, apparently). Rampaging British and American youths live in the largest welfare states in the history of the world. So what horror will we see when our economies totter over?

The Minds of Rioters

What goes through the minds of people who self-destruct their own cities? The answer to that question begins to reveal how, two decades ago, our editor in chief so accurately forecast what was to come.

Images of boys as young as 8 smashing windows and stealing trainers and televisions illustrated where this problem is rooted: at home. Why does a young person roam the streets and beat people and take their things and throw a firebomb through someone’s front door just because it happens to be on the way to an electronics store they want to rob? Why do kids do horrendous things for “fun”?

Rioters are not born. Like everyone else, they begin as precious children, not knowing anything unless they are taught it. But what happens when those wonderful minds are wounded by neglect and hatred, dysfunction and lawlessness year after year after year? What happens when they receive little education about life or anything else inside or outside the home? Our divisive, chaotic lives at home eventually spill into the streets.

Britain and America’s violent vandals have simply not been taught how to live.

This is a major key Mr. Flurry used to forecast events like those we are seeing today. And it is written in one the oldest books in print. Isaiah 3 specifically says that our families would be turned upside down and fall apart because we would ignore how family is designed to work. In turn, disintegrating families would lead to a disintegrating nation. As Herbert W. Armstrong wrote, “a solid family structure is the foundational bulwark of any stable and permanent society ….”

Mr. Armstrong taught, and Mr. Flurry teaches, that dismantling our families eventually leads to national destruction. More than one Londoner would tend to agree. Mr. Flurry has also written, based on clear biblical doctrine, that human nature is not naturally good but evil: selfish, prejudiced, jealous, envious, competitive, vain, lustful, greedy, resentful and violent.

Haven’t we seen this insight proved right in 2011? This senseless destruction has revealed that our notionally civilized societies are much, much closer to primitive madness than we like to think. We have not advanced so far as we thought. Our human nature is not as “basically good” as we thought. We are capable of horrendous things so long as a police officer is not standing nearby—and sometimes, even if he is.

We actually have to start asking ourselves whether we can even maintain cooperative, self-governed societies. As one horrified onlooker said, “[T]he main reason you are not attacked on the street, shops are not constantly looted and burnt down, and we all don’t take things that don’t belong to us is because someone, when we were little, taught us the difference between right and wrong.”

But that has changed in Britain and America, hasn’t it?

Our leaders of government, education and culture have consistently, systematically torn down those former absolutes. Husband and wife are bound together for life, fathers should lead their families, laws must be obeyed no matter what, you should work hard in school, criminals should be punished—these are the virtues we thought we were too smart, too advanced for. And now, parts of England look like Libyan war zones.

Isaiah 3 also predicted this. God said there that mighty, judicious, prudent, wise leaders would be removed. “And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them. And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable” (verses 4-5). Doesn’t this sound familiar?

We have deliberately chosen to be godless, deceitful, sinful and covetous, and to reject any thought of God and any inkling of God’s law. And how is that turning out? Would you rather live in a place where those virtues, based on God’s spiritual law, the Ten Commandments, are kept, or would you rather live in Tottenham?

It is a hard truth, but what American and British youths are doing is exactly what they have been taught: There is no such thing as good or evil, no sin or righteousness, God is a myth, resent authority, do what you feel is right, there are no real consequences. Like coddling parents, our governments have torn down virtues and even absolutes rather than upholding them. Britain’s limp response to the people burning its capital city is an iconic example.

We are stuck with the society our leaders have created, but can we still hope that our politicians and educators will learn the lesson and sort this all out? Committees are looking into it. More unaffordable, ineffective government social programs are on the way. You know that will be the answer. Addressing human nature? Defining good and evil? Turning to God? Out of the question.

It Is in the Bible

But there is an even more specific reason why Mr. Flurry so accurately forecast such violence in our cities. It goes beyond the tendencies of human nature. Believe it or not, the violence of 2011 Tottenham was written about by Ezekiel in the fifth century b.c. Here is what he wrote about the cities of America, Britain and Israel:

“A third part of thee shall die with the pestilence, and with famine shall they be consumed in the midst of thee: and a third part shall fall by the sword round about thee; and I will scatter a third part into all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them” (Ezekiel 5:12).

The booklet in which Mr. Flurry discussed these matters as far back as 1992 is called Ezekiel: The End-Time Prophet. In it he wrote, “Notice that pestilence is mentioned first. In the past, we thought the pestilence would be disease resulting from the famine. In this case, the pestilence is actually the leading cause of the famine!

“The word pestilence just means destruction or death. … So this pestilence could be a plague of violence or burning ….” Mr. Flurry defines this burning and violence in our nations as similar to the 1992 Los Angeles riots, as well as the impact of even worse mayhem: terrorism.

“The Los Angeles rioting is just a type of what is going to happen to major cities in the whole nation!” Mr. Flurry wrote in 1992. “It is a stark prophecy of our future!” How much more accurate could you get?

“Terrorist attacks, rioting and burning are the main thrust of the pestilence mentioned in Ezekiel 5,” he continued. “And this rioting will spread to other Israelite nations—unless people repent! God will get our attention one way or another. The worse the violence and burning becomes, the worse the famine will get. The worse the famine becomes, the more intensive the violence will get. It becomes a vicious cycle.”

Does not this perfectly describe what we are witnessing in Britain and America’s major cities? “[A]s the U.S. and Britain become less and less competitive worldwide, unemployment will steadily increase. As that happens, domestic rioting and violence will become much more prevalent ….

“The seeds of this future calamity have already been sown. The government has lost control. There is a breakdown of law and order. … We are getting dangerously close to social anarchy and chaos!”

We have just witnessed an advancement in this society-wide plague of violence and burning that is to strike our major cities.

The Bible even describes our leaders’ feckless reaction to this implosion of order. But the Bible prophesied these problems, and it didn’t say they were for want of another social spending initiative.

In Isaiah 1:5, speaking primarily about the leaders of America, Britain and Judah, God says the “whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.” Those responsible for leading our peoples simply do not have the heart or strength to confront evil, even when it threatens to destroy our cities.

Therefore, the whole body is sick—head to toe (verse 6). And it’s leading to our cities being burned with fire by “strangers.”

“The Bible also reveals the cause of the riots.” After quoting Isaiah 1:5-6, Mr. Flurry stated: “Neither the leaders nor their followers have the will or the strength to get to the roots of race riots or terrorist attacks and solve them once and for all (see Daniel 12:9; 9:13; and Leviticus 26:19).”

These riots are a warning to the whole world: This is what happens when a nation rejects God’s laws and revolts against His way of building a family. These riots are only going to get worse.

And why is this happening? Because this is what it takes for our peoples to finally come to really know their God. This is what it takes for us to finally admit that the desperately needed solution is not just one more election, just one more law, just one more committee, just one more spending initiative, just one more social program away. This is what it takes to admit that we must turn to God! And believing in Him and obeying His laws will solve these chaotic problems!

“And they shall know that I am the Lord, and that I have not said in vain that I would do this evil unto them,” it says in Ezekiel 6:10. This is the big lesson God wants the latter-day Israelites and the rest of this world to ultimately learn—then “they shall know that I am the Lord.”

THE WEATHER - 2011

Twisters, Floods, Drought—What’s Wrong With the Weather?
When the U.S. is getting walloped by record tornadoes, record flooding and record drought—all at the same time—you have to ask the question.  By Joel Hilliker

The United States had already experienced its deadliest tornado season since the mid-1970s, with 365 deaths. Then came Joplin.

“You see pictures of World War ii, the devastation and all that with the bombing. That’s really what it looked like,” said Joplin High School Principal Kerry Sachetta. “I just couldn’t believe what I saw.”

On May 22, a twister ripped through the Missouri town killing 125 people and injuring some 1,150 more, according to early figures. Swaths of suburbia a half-mile wide were leveled along a six-mile stretch, leaving the town unrecognizable. Debris from a hospital that was hit was found 60 miles away.

“You could have probably dropped a nuclear bomb on the town and I don’t think it would have done near as much damage as it did,” said cnn iReporter Zach Tusinger, who lost his uncle and aunt in the tornado.

Devastating

The Joplin tornado killed more people than any tornado since records started being kept six decades ago, and made 2011 the deadliest year for tornadoes since 1953.

Another 67 twisters touched down the same day across the Midwest. Two days later, five more tornadoes hit Oklahoma, killing nine, including two small children from one heartbroken family just a few miles from the Trumpet’s offices.

This was all less than a month after 362 tornadoes hit seven states in just four terrifying days—a rampage that killed over 350 people, injured thousands more, cut power to a million others, and splintered entire towns. It was the worst disaster in America since Katrina.

A record-shattering 312 of those tornadoes touched down within a single 24-hour period between April 27 and 28; before then, the most America had ever seen in a single day was 148. The most violent twister was 20 times normal size. This monster tore a scar one mile wide and a record 300 miles long across Alabama and Georgia.

Remarkably, this all hit just days after another devastating rash of 155 tornadoes between April 14 and 16.

How unusual was this? The previous 10 Aprils each spawned an average of 161 tornadoes in the U.S.; the previous April record was 267. But in April of this year, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (noaa) estimates the number of twisters to touch down on American soil was an unparalleled 600-plus.

“This is a history-making tornado outbreak,” said meteorologist Jeff Masters.

The crazy thing is, when it comes to disasters, “history-making” is becoming commonplace.

Every few weeks it seems, the Earth unleashes unprecedented fury of another sort. One more dreadful record falls, and another constellation of survivors is left breathless in its wake.

What’s wrong with the weather? You have to have blinders on not to at least be asking the question.

Unprecedented

Even with Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma and Tennessee in states of emergency from the tornadoes, other disasters are striking elsewhere in the country.

Texas is withering from its worst drought since 1895. None of the state is drought-free, according the U.S. Drought Monitor’s May 17 edition; over 80 percent is in “extreme” or “exceptional” drought. This is demolishing the state’s wheat production. The U.S. Department of Agriculture expects wheat production to drop 63 percent in Texas this year—which is certain to hurt already-low global supplies.

The bone-dry conditions have created a tinderbox for wildfires. More than 6,900 separate blazes this year have torched more than 2 million acres across the state. “At times, we were literally burning border to border,” said a Texas Forest Service spokesperson. “I’ve never seen anything like it” (emphasis mine).

Wildfires are also blazing in Arizona, charring more than 40,000 acres so far.

Many people in these parched and blackened regions must be shaking their heads at the irony as they see other parts of the country being deluged with severe flooding.

Downpours across the South have swamped 3.6 million acres of farmland, 
1 million acres in Arkansas alone.

Tennessee, Mississippi, Missouri, Illinois and Louisiana have also been hit hard after heavy rains and melting snow swelled the Ohio and Mississippi rivers to record levels. Federal authorities in Missouri were forced to blast a levee that was creaking under the strain of floodwaters, inundating a 200-square-mile region. “Nobody has seen this type of water in the system,” the president of the Mississippi River Commission said. “It’s an unprecedented flood.”

Puzzling

These where-did-this-come-from, once-in-a-lifetime, never-before-witnessed calamities are piling up on top of one another. Why? Scientists are scrambling for answers.

Climate change models do not explain the increase in disasters hitting the U.S. right now. “Some ingredients that are favorable to tornadoes will increase in a warming world, others will decrease,” says Harold Brooks of the National Severe Storms Laboratory.

“I don’t think there’s any way of proving climate change is responsible for the weather patterns this week and week before,” said meteorologist Howard Bluestein of the University of Oklahoma in the first week of May.

After the Joplin tornado, a National Weather Service representative said it was hard to find correlation between climate change and the weather in spring 2011. “We just don’t know,” he said.

Whatever instruments and computer models they consult, however, scientists are overlooking the most important dimension to this trend.

That is, that weather is not entirely random.

It has a Maker. And it has a Sustainer.

Purposeful

If you believe the Bible, God challenges you to accept its assertion that He has power over the potent and destructive phenomena that are increasingly besieging our world. He can create them, and He can prevent them.

Job 38:28, for example, reveals God as the father of rain. He is able to command storm clouds, tornadoes and hurricanes to serve His purposes: “Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north. By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened. Also by watering he wearieth the thick cloud: he scattereth his bright cloud: And it is turned round about by his counsels: that they may do whatsoever he commandeth them upon the face of the world in the earth. He causeth it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy” (Job 37:9-13).

Yes, sometimes God bathes the Earth with gentle rain to show His loving concern and mercy—and other times God uses the weather, including floods and tornadoes, to correct people!

The God of the Bible is not impotent. He likens His judgment against the wicked to a tornado or hurricane (e.g. Jeremiah 23:19; 30:23-24). He uses the punitive sword of flood and mildew—and also that of drought (Deuteronomy 28:22; 11:17). Sometimes He wields both at the same time in order to heighten their corrective power (Amos 4:7).

The Bible also reveals that God has set spiritual and physical laws in motion, and that in this present age He is allowing mankind to develop its own ways of living—contrary to those laws—and to reap the natural consequences that result, including weather upsets.

Further, God, in His great purpose, also allows Satan the devil—the current (and temporary) god of this world, according to 2 Corinthians 4:4—to have a role in producing catastrophic weather, for man’s ultimate learning (see Job 1).

We should consider the worsening weather trend a warning from God. That’s not to say—as Christ Himself clarified—that those specifically hit by these storms are any more sinful than those who were spared. We should recognize these as being curses on and warnings to the nation, not particular individuals. Christ’s message was, “[E]xcept ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:5). Biblical prophecy shows that we can expect this increasingly chaotic weather to get far, far worse very soon (see Revelation 6:5-8; 8:4-12). The powerful natural forces are going to be unleashed upon a disobedient world to bring it to its knees in repentance.

In Leviticus 26, God promises “rain in due season” and that “the land shall yield her increase” (verse 4)—“if ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them” (verse 3). Were the nations to do so, we would find ourselves blessed with beautiful weather and stable climates. We would not have to fear crop failures and famine, or being killed in a severe weather event.

We can—and prophecy shows, we will—experience prosperous living with pleasant weather—when we acknowledge and obey God, His laws and His benevolent rule.

SHOCKING EVENTS ARE HAPPENING

Cover-up surrounding Obama’s alleged crimes begins to unravel

Obama’s ineligibility: Prepare for the fall

The United States is in a Constitutional and political crisis without precedent.

What can ordinary Americans do when a large number of politicians are corrupt and an even larger portion of the national political leadership is complicit in a cover-up of that corruption?


Do we petition those leaders to investigate and punish themselves?

George Will, for whom I have great respect as a commentator, recently wrote a scholarly, but an unintentionally satirical article entitled “Is Obama above the law?” about his violation of the War Powers Act in regard to the Libyan War.

Mr. Will ended his commentary with what must have been deliberate satire:

“‘No president,’ says Sen. John McCain, ‘has ever recognized the constitutionality of the War Powers Act, and neither do I. So I don’t feel bound by any deadline.’ Oh? No law is actually a law if presidents and senators do not “recognize” it? Now, there is an interesting alternative to judicial review, and an indicator of how executive aggrandizement and legislative dereliction of duty degrade the rule of law.”

The evident bewilderment displayed by Will is prima facie evidence of the depth of denial now prevalent in Washington, D.C.

It is an equivalent to writing an article after the Pearl Harbor attack entitled “The Japanese might not like us.”

The arrogance of the permanent political class is both shocking and out of control.

Having been born in Panama and not eligible to run for the Presidency, McCain obviously doesn’t recognize the Constitution either.

For me, the uncertainty about McCain’s ineligibility was resolved by the bogus, non-binding Senate Resolution 511, co-sponsored by Obama, which declared McCain a “natural born citizen” and, therefore, eligible for the Presidency.

The fact that Congress has no authority to do such a thing was apparently completely irrelevant to that majestic body. Maybe I’m a cynic, but it sounds to me like just another crooked, backroom deal.

If McCain and Obama both didn’t need the “cover”, why go through that elaborate Senate charade?

Andrew Napolitano once asked South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn, the third-ranking Democrat in the House of Representatives, where in the Constitution it authorizes the federal government to regulate the delivery of health care.

Clyburn replied: “There’s nothing in the Constitution that says that the federal government has anything to do with most of the stuff we do.” Then he shot back: “How about [you] show me where in the Constitution it prohibits the federal government from doing this?”

Rep. Clyburn, like many in Congress, has conveniently forgotten that, according to the Constitution, the federal government has only specific enumerated powers.

As Mr. Napolitano correctly noted, Congress has gone from upholding the Constitution to evading it.

Basically, the permanent political class is saying to the American people: “we’ll do whatever we want and you prove that we can’t do it.”

That is exactly how Barack Obama has been operating and why no one in Washington, D.C. will challenge him.

Our political royals want the option of evading the Constitution or any law they deem inconvenient, like, most recently, what appears to be Congressional insider stock trading and the distribution of Obamacare waivers as political favors.

If the people at the highest levels of government believe that they can, whenever they wish, commit law evasion, what can ordinary citizens do?

We can hope that the cover-up surrounding Obama’s alleged crimes begins to unravel and honest, courageous and patriotic leaders step forward to root out those complicit, eliminate the endemic corruption and guide the country back on the right course.

Otherwise, left with no alternatives, open dissent will grow and chaos will ensue.

Keep your powder dry.

There are a whole host of events that can bring the world as we know it today to its knees. From a hyperinflationary economic collapse to an electro magnetic pulse originating from the sun or a nuclear weapon , there exists a real and present danger that our system may, in the near future, experience unrecoverable shocks to the power grid and clean water infrastructure, a halt to just-in-time agricultural transportation systems and a collapse of the currency exchange mechanisms that make the economy function.

US Representative Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD), lived through the great depression, so he’s seen how bad things can get. In a new documentary, Mr. Bartlett and others discuss the dangers posed to those living in cities and ways that your family can survive if the worst were to ever happen.

FROM "STEVE QUAYLE"

NRA Sells Out Second Amendment on Patriot Act: The NRA sold out the Second Amendment during the Patriot Act fight, criticizing Senator Rand Paul's amendment to exempt gun purchases from search provisions of the Patriot Act in e-mails to Congress while sitting on information showing the need for Paul's amendment. The information shows that the FBI and the federal government's Joint Terrorism Task Force have already begun trolling the records of law-abiding gun owners, using the excuse of terrorism surveillance. more
