Pompous Pride and Planet Perplexity
“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not” (Galatians 6:7-9).
Depravity: In California, a Disciples of Christ Church in San Diego that describes itself as “radically inclusive” purchased a billboard atop a gay bar with the message, “God takes pride in you; so do we!”
Last Sunday, Netflix aired a “Salute to Abortion,” hosted by “comedian” Michelle Wolf, who closed the segment with a star-spangled, flag-waving, drum corps declaration: “God bless abortion!” On her weekly Netflix program, “The Break with Michelle Wolf” (in the wake of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s announced retirement), Wolf touted abortion rights and demeaned pro-life Americans.
A disgusting, profanity-laced video (link inside if you dare to watch) posted to social media on Monday features an interview with the woman behind the “Thank God for abortion” float that appeared at the NYC Pride Parade on June 24. She says she was “blessed” to have two abortions, and says she’s trying to push back against Christian beliefs that stand against homosexuality and abortion.
Marvel Studios has announced that two openly gay “heroes” are coming to movies screens soon. In May, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation raked Marvel Studios over the coals for not having enough homosexuals in their films. Now GLAAD has gotten their wish.
By the time the San Diego, California Pride Parade got underway Saturday, the party was already in full swing, and it seemed everyone was invited. Over a quarter of a million people watched or participated, and there was a rallying cry to “Persist with Pride.”
Tacoma, Washington’s Mayor Victoria Woodards was busy posing for photos with festival goers after the Pride event kicked off on Saturday. It was her first Pride as mayor.
Scotland’s First Minister and leader of the Scottish National Party, Nicola Sturgeon, led Glasgow’s largest Pride event ever on Saturday. The event was so full that hundreds with valid tickets couldn’t get in.
Huff Post was so proud of Pride this year, they boastfully said #TheFutureIsQueer.
Three young employees at a senior living facility: Mya Moss, Jorden Bruce, and Lizeth Ramirez were arrested for not attending to and videotaping a patient who had just had a stroke. They watched her dying while uploading the event to Snapchat, a social media video platform. On the video, Ramirez and Bruce can be seen sitting in chairs laughing, screaming obscenities and using a vape cigarette while Moss was shooting the video.
From Daily Caller: Many blogs exist on Tumblr showing support for MAPs, claiming they should be part of the LGBT community, and attempt to create “safe spaces” for “minor attracted persons.” The blog “Pedophiles about Pedophilia” presents sob stories of “marginalized” pedophiles in pretty pastel colors, claiming they mean no harm and just want to be loved, as shown in such headlines as “Why Pedophilia And Pedophiles Are Not A Risk To Children,” etc. This name change follows the liberal trend of rebranding with “politically correct” names; but is the next step really normalizing pedophilia?
In Texas, 25-year-old Sarah Peters has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for attempting to sell her two-year-old daughter for a sex act, for $1,200, to an undercover police officer who impersonated a willing pedophile.
Sexually transmitted disease: A little known sexually transmitted infection could become the next superbug unless people become more vigilant. Mycoplasma genitalium (MG) often has no symptoms but can cause pelvic inflammatory disease, which can leave some women infertile. MG can be missed, and if not treated correctly can develop resistance to antibiotics.
Drugs: Methamphetamine is back, more popular, plentiful and lethal than ever.
Pestilence: A deadly parasitic worm is coming to Europe due to third-world migration, one of the many benefits of open borders. Schistosomiasis is caused by infection with blood dwelling schistosome flatworms. Its impact is so great that some have claimed it’s second only to malaria on the scale of devastating parasitic diseases. Hundreds to thousands of eggs are produced daily by each female worm, which causes chronic complications. Eggs that migrate into the intestines or bladder are released into the environment when an infected person defecates or urinates. If the eggs reach fresh water, they can hatch and release snail-infective schistosome stages, which effectively completes the life cycle.
Apostasy: We’re witnessing a religious shift unprecedented in size and scope in American history. With each passing year, the percentage of Americans that claim no religious affiliation is growing; this trend is especially pronounced among young people. If it continues, it’s going to have enormous implications for the future of our society. The US was founded by people extremely committed to their faith; now we’re rapidly becoming a nation where people are choosing no religion at all.
Natural disasters: In California, a large fire that broke out late Thursday night in Chico that burned 650 acres in a little more than 13 hours. Meanwhile, firefighters continued to control several other large fires burning in Northern California. Second-generation California firefighter, Braden Varney, 36, was killed while trying to prevent a wildfire from spreading near Yosemite National Park.
In Hawaii, video captured an explosion off Kapoho, where lava is flowing into the sea. The explosion just offshore of a lava delta threw plumes of smoke and rock high into the air. It’s all a part of the process that has already created about 655 of acres of new land on The Big Island as ongoing eruptions continue. The interaction of molten lava with cool seawater can cause pulsating “littoral explosions,” which can throw fragments of molten lava and pieces of solidified glass lava “high into the air.”
In Greenland, officials evacuated some residents in the village of Innaarsuit on Friday after a huge iceberg neared the island. Villagers said they’ve never seen an iceberg this big.
Israel’s Defense Ministry, the security establishment, and the National Emergency Authority held an emergency meeting after dozens of earthquakes were felt in northern Israel in recent days. 80,000 buildings, including schools and hospitals over three stories high were built before 1980, and are not constructed to current standards.
A 2016 report found that if Israel were struck by a 7.5 earthquake, an estimated 7,000 people would be killed, 8,600 injured and 377,000 left homeless. In addition to buildings being destroyed, the damage to critical infrastructures such as electricity, water and communication would be great. Also, inland damage of a major earthquake, Israel’s coastline, would risk being devastated by possible tsunamis.
Extreme weather: In the aftermath of the disastrous and historic flooding across western Japan, survivors and recovery crews will continue to face sweltering heat and humidity. The death toll rose to 203 on Friday with dozens more people still missing.
Persecution of Christians: In England, Dr. David Mackereth, NHS doctor for 26 years, was “sacked” as a medical assessor for a government department for refusing to renounce his Christian belief that gender is determined at birth.
Nigeria is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a Christian. What’s going on right now in Nigeria is “pure genocide” of Christians.
Christians have been rooted in the Middle East as minority communities since its birth, but their numbers are declining amid conflict and jihadist attacks.
In the UK, unveiling plans to step up its war on what it calls “hate speech,” the Home Office promised a police cash boost to give call handlers “specialist training” developed partly by a George Soros-backed NGO on how to give people reporting so-called hate crimes “the vital support they need.” Who do you think will be the prime target accused of hate speech? Christians. And as far as hate crime, we’ve seen that the main perpetrators seem to be more protected than the victims. Soros backed? Nuff said.
Anti-Semitism: Well, well; Paypal did something good. The giant US online payment service shut down the account of a major French boycott, sanctions, divestment (BDS) organization that targets Israel.
In California, The Democratic Socialists of America have endorsed a rabid anti-Semitic candidate. Maria Estrada – supporter of the ranting and raving Jew/whites-hating Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan – is running in a district representing suburban Los Angeles.
In Minnesota, Hijab-wearing Muslim Democrat, Ilhan Omar, who is running for Congress, blames Israel for ‘evil doings’ in Gaza.
Israel’s Defense Minister Lieberman called for Israel to shut down the Israeli Embassy in Dublin in response to the Irish Senate voting overwhelmingly to approve a proposal to boycott companies and imports of goods from West Bank settlements.
Caught between Muslim jihadists and neo-Nazis, Swedish Jews fear for their future.
The Muslim Congress’ 14th annual conference entitled “Islam: Religion of Hope” on July 6-8 in Orlando, Florida featured anti-Semitic, Holocaust-denying, anti-gay (the Qur’an calls for killing gays), and pro-terrorist speakers.
A Geneva Watchdog group says the UN has failed to seriously combat anti-Semitism and in some cases de-Judaized the Holocaust. UN Watch made the accusation in a report it presented at the Knesset.
Islamization: In Europe, more people are dying that are being born, while the Muslim population is greatly increasing.
Global government ruse: These 8 words are the death of climate change: It violates the Equivalence Principle, therefore it’s wrong. At its very core, the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) violated a key principle of physics. Human emissions do not change climate, and futile attempts to reduce human emissions (and those of cows) will not change climate.
A report from Scientific American said there are problems this year for the species of shorebirds that each year descend on the Arctic to mate and raise chicks. The reproduction happens in the summer, but because of extensive July snow this year, there’s been no summer.
Rise of the Kings of the East: China will provide “Palestinians” with over $15 million in aid as it seeks to build its influence in the Middle East and Africa.
Terrorism/Nation against nation: A suicide bomber killed at least 128 people at a campaign rally in Pakistan – the deadliest attack in the country since 2014. ISIS claimed the attack. Earlier, a bomb attack on a similar rally in the northern town of Bannu killed four people. The attacks come ahead of general elections on 25 July.
In Iraq, targeted attacks by ISIS on police and government officials have risen in several provinces. Assassinations require few people and are perfectly suited as a force multiplier for a group that has seen its forces decimated. The late June assassination of 8 Iraqi security personnel, filmed and put online by ISIS’ media outlet, was the most recent and most high-profile of these attacks in the last six months.
Israel closer to the Time of Jacob’s Trouble: The Israeli government recently announced that the largest community of Jews in the world is now in Israel. This has far-reaching Messianic ramifications in Jewish Law and requires the Jews to reinstate Biblical commandments not seen in two thousand years, bringing redemption a significant step closer.
Last year set a record for the number of Jews ascending to the Temple Mount; this week, with two months still left until the Jewish new year, that record was broken. This rising interest in Judaism’s holiest site is considered hopeful for paving the way for the Third Temple.
The 9th of Av (Tisha B’Av) is a fast day commemorating the destruction of both Jewish Temples. This year it begins the evening of July 21 and ends the following evening. See this article from 2012 which describes the many calamities that have befallen the Jewish people on Tisha B’Av throughout history.
Signs in the sun: As of July 10th, the sun has been without sunspots for 100 days in 2018. If current trends continue, 2018 will end with a 10-year low in sunspot counts. This is a sign that Solar Minimum is approaching–even more rapidly than forecasters expected. Low solar activity boosts cosmic rays – atom fragments that rain down on Earth that have been blamed for electronics problems in satellites and other machinery.
Leftist agenda: First some good news. The Wisconsin Supreme Court sent a powerful message to America’s elite private universities: If you’re going to promise academic freedom, you’d better deliver it. The court held that Marquette University violated its own faculty handbook when it effectively terminated professor John McAdams for writing a blog post criticizing a graduate student instructor’s attempts to silence debate about gay rights in her ethics class.
Trump protestors filled the streets of London on Friday the 13th while the president visited with the queen. We can safely assume these deceived ones drank the globalist-laced kool-aid and want the fall of Europe to continue. However, the next day Trump supporters came out to show that not everyone in Britain drank that deadly indoctrinating potion.
Planned Parenthood baby killers and baby parts sellers are daring to make demands regarding the Supreme Court pick.
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter said this week that Jesus would approve of gay marriage and certain abortions in an interview with HuffPost Live.
Despite having some of the strictest firearms laws in the country, Chicago continues to be plagued by rampant gun violence. The death toll is increasing daily.
Marxist/Socialist/Communist corruption: Mexicans have elected a new far-left, authoritarian socialist president who supports open borders or, at least, open between his country and ours. He said Mexico “will defend, without conditions, the right of our citizens to earn a living anywhere in the world. He backs amnesty for drug kingpins and, when asked in 2006 about their beheading of police officers, would only answer “love and peace.” Interviewed by the Mexican media, he kept repeating his “Imagine” mantra in this exchange:
– Aren’t you worried about what is happening with drug trafficking?
– I’m not answering that, we are in truce. Love and peace.
– The narcos left a message to the government. What do you say?
– I’m not going to answer. I offer apologies to all. Love and peace.
Mexicans also may not be able to get rid of AMLO (Andrés Manuel López Obrador) when his constitutional term of six years (with no re-election allowed) is over. He will likely seek, as the other Marxist rulers in the hemisphere have done, constitutional change to permit re-election. The US has never faced so clear a danger on its border.
Much of Nicaragua has been in revolt against President Daniel Ortega’s leftist regime since April when he cut pensions and social security. Citizens are enraged by how he’s consolidated authoritarian power over his four terms as president and has allowed his security to use deadly force against protesters. Over 300 people have been killed since the conflict began, the vast majority civilians. On Friday, pro-government militias set out to crush a student rebellion at the university. Two students were killed and at least 10 were injured.
Cashless society: The cashless movement continues to grow. As we know, the coming Antichrist’s global government will be cashless, with the left behind required to take his mark of worship in order to buy, sell…or live.
Orwellian society: A group of researchers and students at MIT have developed an intelligent radar-like technology that makes it possible to see through walls to track people as they move around.
Facebook removed a music video from the Facebook page of the Gospel Group, Zion’s Joy titled “What Would Heaven Look Like.” The video opens with images of strife and protests as the group sings lines including, “I know it might feel like this trouble will stay, but this world will soon fade away.”
Traitors: First, the good news—if it passes. It seems the new “Unmasking Antifa Act” has ruffled a few feathers among the lefists. Introduced in the House by Rep Dan Donovan (R-NY), H.R. 6054 is a response to a spate of violent attacks provoked by masked members of Antifa, and would punish anyone wearing a mask who “injures, oppresses, threatens or intimidates” a person “in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege” with a fine and up to 15 years in prison.
Over the past few years the Deep State DOJ and FBI redacted documents allegedly in the name of national security but also created false documents.
Former FBI agent Strzok refused to admit that three different versions of the salacious Trump dossier were drummed up. Rudy Guliani said, “Isn’t that called collusion or conspiracy to gin up a totally inappropriate, totally illegally wire based on national security? And doesn’t it taint the entire Russian probe? That’s a disgrace; [Special Counsel Robert] Mueller should be ashamed of himself. Those Democrats trying to protect that liar, Strzok, should be ashamed of themselves. And every FBI agent I know wants to see this guy drummed out of the bureau,” he said.
Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) found that Hillary Clinton’s over 30,000 emails, except four, were going to an unauthorized foreign entity unrelated to Russia. ICIG investigator, Frank Rucker, presented the findings to Strzok, but the FBI official did nothing with the information.
An investigation has found that the Obama administration, citing “political concerns” in 2013, derailed a plan to prosecute Taliban drug kingpins in U.S. courts that could have curtailed unprecedented heroin operations in Afghanistan, which fueled the deadly opioid crisis across the US.
The European Union’s Ambassador to Israel Emanuele Giaufret urged parliamentarians not to support the Knesset bill, which states that Israel is the nation state of the Jewish people. It would anchor in law the state’s menorah emblem, Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, national holidays and the right of all Israeli residents to preserve their heritage. Israel’s President Rivlin and the attorney general oppose the bill as well, stating that it would cause problems.
The “Palestinian” pandering pope led a summit in Italy to promote Middle East “peace.” He says walls, occupied territories (he considers Israel to be the occupier) and Christian fundamentalists (that would be us) hamper peace. Francis has previously called for all to honor UN resolutions on the city (that would be against Israel). The Vatican also didn’t support the US embassy move to Jerusalem, and it backs the so-called “two-state solution.”
Germany’s administration refuses to impose sanctions against Iran and plans to allow Iran to fly over $350 million in cash out of the country and back to Tehran as part of an effort by the Iranian regime to restock its coffers. The US is trying to convince Germany not to allow this.
Wars and rumors of wars: Europe stands no chance if forced to face conflict on three fronts. On the eastern flank, there are continuous tensions with Russia, and in the Balkans near the border with Turkey. In the Mediterranean area, young and strong men from Africa and Central Asia cross European borders with the support of a thousand people from the continent’s heartland. Europeans are also militarily involved in Afghanistan, Syria and take part in the growing conflict in Mali.
Between Friday and Saturday, 200 projectiles were fired at Israel from the Gaza Strip Three Israelis were injured when their home was struck. In response, Israel’s IAF carried out the largest daytime operation against Hamas since Operation Protective Edge in 2014 with fighter jets hitting 40 targets across the Gaza Strip.
Video footage obtained by TPS shows hundreds of locals in recent days denouncing Assad and Russian President Vladimir Putin and gathering at the Syria-Israel border to ask for IDF protection against possible reprisals by the victorious forces.
Israel is providing humanitarian aid to the thousands of Syrians camped out in tents near Israel’s frontier, hoping to find sanctuary from the government onslaught. “We were brainwashed for decades to hate Israel,” said Hani, a resident of southern Syria being treated for shrapnel wounds at Israel’s Galilee Medical Center in Nahariya. “I now see that my enemy isn’t Israel, but the people who came and destroyed our village.”
Israel’s PM Netanyahu said he has no problem with Assad staying in power, but South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham warned him that Assad and Iran are a package deal. Without Iran/Hezbollah, Syria’s Assad would not be in power and would not have the ability to slaughter almost a half-million Syrians. Without Assad’s blessing, the flags of Hezbollah and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard would not be on Israel’s front door. He also warned Netanyahu not to trust Russia to keep Iran at bay.
Iran’s Revolutionary Guard said it’s “awaiting orders” to attack Israel ahead of the Putin/Netanyahu summit meeting. The possibility for further clashes between Israel and Damascus remains high.
Iranian Revolutionary Guard Deputy Commander Hossein Salami promised to fight Israel from Lebanese soil. Salami explained his rationale for destroying the State of Israel. He said the “problem” of Israel’s existence could be solved primarily by using the “mighty power” of the Iranian-backed Hezbollah terror group. His (translated) speech was titled “The problems of the Islamic world stem from the existence of the false, counterfeit, historically rootless, and identity-less regime named Israel.” He called on young Muslims to unite and wage jihad against Israelis and Americans and referred to “Palestinians” as Iran’s main tool against their true enemy: the US.
Syria accused Israel of striking Syria’s T4 Airbase last Sunday night near Homs hours after a senior Iranian official said Iran will maintain its military presence in Syria. The report stated that the attack targeted Iranian forces and pro-Assad militias. In addition Hezbollah forces are also located at the base.
The Israeli military struck three Syrian military targets overnight on Wednesday in retaliation for a Syrian drone that infiltrated into northern Israel hours earlier.
There are fears of new conflicts at one of Israel’s quietest borders. A reinforced deployment of tanks and heavy guns is parked along Israel’s frontier with Syria as the civil war that transformed the balance of power in the Middle East appears headed into its final stretch. The fighting in Syria has come full circle as its army sets its sights on retaking Daraa province. The Iranians are deeply embedded in the Syrian security forces; and if they stay in large numbers, the potential for greater conflict between Israel and Iran in Syria will remain high.
Knesset Speaker Edelstein calls for an iron wall on Israel’s northern border and says Israel must prepare for events ahead of time. “Today, we are witness to the creation of a new reality on the Syrian border. We don’t know who will control the area in the future, and how long the bloodbath will continue…We ourselves need to ensure that the eternal fire of the Jewish nation will never be extinguished.”
The Hal Lindsey Report is a MUST WATCH this week: The topics are Planetary Distress, UNRWA, The Other Refugees, and A World of Hurt. Watch at this link.
